HDD Needs Drive Letter

George Zaynoun
 

I have an HP laptop that can accomodate M2SATA SSD which is already installed and working properly, there is also a free compartment for another HDD or SSD standard size, I installed it and it is 1TB. In device manager it is working properly but it did not get a drive letter as it appears. How can I fix it? The installed HDD is partitioned and formatted with another laptop using usb so it should work.

Re: At&T accessibility

Ok, after reading everyones comments, that the My AT&T app is accessible, I deleted the app from my device & reinstalled it. I'm happy to report that the My AT&T app is accessible.

Donna


Joseph, I think the My AT&T app accessibility was broken with the most recent update to the app. I rarely use the app, so I can't say exactly when the app became unusable with voiceover.

Donna


What the heck? The my AT&T app is no longer accessible it was whenever I had it a while back and it looked pretty accessible. I can always reinstall it again and ask my brother if I could look at his deal. Because I used to be on his account. The only thing that was a little weird, was when they sent you your bill, it was in a video so he had to tell me what I owed him.

I am considering changing to AT&T internet and a streaming package. I already know that their streaming package is very accessible with the Apple devices. But I want to know how it is to use their web site and their email. I am currently with Spectrum and their sites are not simple but usable. Not too happy with the streaming package so far as usability.

Jim Wohlgamuth
 

Hi there GROUP!
After receiving my windows update this afternoon I lost my Solitaire and chess games.  I had a Win 7 version of solitaire which worked extremely well with jaws. Also, I had a chess game that also worked with jaws.  After my windows update both these games disappeared..? Does anyone know where I can get a Win 7 version of Solitaire and a chess game that will work with JAWs? Thanks Much! Have A Good 1!

Monte,

 

Jaws doesn't have a shortcut keystroke for quickly accessing punctuation levels, but below are steps for creating 1.  Below the steps are 3 ways to change punctuation levels the traditional ways.

 

1. Press, Insert + F2, to open the Jaws Manager, go to, Keyboard Manager, press enter, navigate to, Default, & tab 1 time to get into the list of options. 
Or, you can go directly from within any program to its JAWS Keyboard Manager (.JKM) by pressing, Insert / Jaws Key + 8, on the number row, then press,
Control, Shift, + D, to open the DEFAULT JAWS Keyboard Manager.
2. In the Default keyboard manager list navigate to, Set Punctuation Level none.  None means there has not been a keystroke assigned.
3. Press the, Alt key, to open the menues, & right arrow to, Action, down arrow to, Add Keystroke..., & press enter.  Or, press, control + A, is the shortcut
keystroke for, asigning a keystroke.
4. Insert a keystroke combination like, control + dash, for example. if the combination is already being used for another command jaws will tell you. 
Doing this in the Default Keyboard Manager, allows this keystroke to be used in all aplications.
5. Tab to the, Okay button, press the spacebar, a dialogue will open asking if you're sure you want to modify the default JKM, press the spacebar on the,
Yes, option.
 
Now, every time you press the control + dash keystroke it changes the punctuation level.  So, press the control + dash keystroke until you hear the punctuation
level you want.
 
If you ever want to change or remove the keystroke open the Keyboard Manager, Find Default, Find Set Punctuation Level, press the, Alt key, right arrow
to Action, & arrow down to make your choice of what you want to do.
 
*** 

 Here are 3 ways of changing the punctuation level setting:
#1.  For an individual application using Jaws Quick Settings:
1. While in any application / program press, Insert + V, to open the Jaws quick settings.
2. In the search field type, punctuation, or just the 1st 4 letters will work as well and it'll take a second for the list to populate.  You should hear
something like, Punctuation 1 of 1 search results.  Now down arrow and you should hear Jaws report, punctuation... with the ... meaning your current level
setting.  Now press the spacebar to toggle through your punctuation level options.  They are None, Some, Most & All.
3. When you hear the level setting you want stop pressing the spacebar, tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
 
 
 
#2.  To change the punctuation level for an individual application in the Settings Center:
1. Open the Settings Center by pressing, Insert + 6, on the number row.
2. Down arrow to, Punctuation closed, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow 2 times to, Punctuation level..., the ... is the current level you're set on.  Now press the spacebar to toggle through your punctuation
level options.  They are None, Some, Most & All.
4. When you hear the level setting you want stop pressing the spacebar, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and
close.
 
#3. To change the punctuation level for all applications in Settings Center default all applications:
1. Open the Settings Center by pressing, Insert + 6, on the number row, now press, control, shift + D, to open Settings Center default all applications.
2. Down arrow to, Punctuation closed, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow 2 times to, Punctuation level..., the ... is the current level you're set on.  Now press the spacebar to toggle through your punctuation
level options.  They are None, Some, Most & All.
4. When you hear the level setting you want stop pressing the spacebar, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.

Well, I wish they would put the money they spent on stock buybacks and paying shareholders on upgrading their terrible dsl service areas. The worst thing, they charge the exact same price for dsl as fiber or VDSL service.

Re: NVDA cutting off first letter

I haven't tried it and of course I wouldn't knowingly recommend one. I'm not recommending it based on personal experience, I'm saying that its been around for quite a while and since I haven't heard any complaints and I have heard a number of times that it works, I expect it to and not to cause problems.

any harm.

Use a small utility called Silenzio. Read about it in this article.

Move by heading to find the beginning of the discussion. The heading says
"The Realtek sound problem"

A link is given to go to the page to download the program. It is the name

Does anyone know if you can set NVDA to stop this? Jaws just put out a fix
for it by stopping the sounds card from sleeping when not using and someone
on a chat group is having this issue with NVDA.
Personally I don’t find it all that much of a problem but some do. If you
use the new setting in Jaws, you can not use Audio ducking, which I do find
very useful.

Use a small utility called Silenzio.  Read about it in this article.

Does anyone know if you can set NVDA to stop this? Jaws just put out a fix
for it by stopping the sounds card from sleeping when not using and someone
on a chat group is having this issue with NVDA.
Personally I don’t find it all that much of a problem but some do.  If you
use the new setting in Jaws, you can not use Audio ducking, which I do find
very useful.

At&T accessibility

Marie <magpie.mn@...>
 

I am considering changing to AT&T internet and a streaming package. I already know that their streaming package is very accessible with the Apple devices. But I want to know how it is to use their web site and their email. I am currently with Spectrum and their sites are not simple but usable. Not too happy with the streaming package so far as usability.

The aT&T service here in Reno is Fiber optics so the equipment is good.

I haven't seen any complaints of any kind about the utility. It is completely independent of the screen-reader and just sends some sort of inaudible signal to the soundcard to keep it active. I don't expect it to affect NVDA in any way.

I don't know if the JAWS solution can be turnned off or uninstalled or whatever should be possible for disabling it. But you should be able to use Silenzio with no ill effects on JAWS either.

Does this prevent NVDA from using Audio ducking?
