reading file information in file explorer JAWS versus window eyes.

adam morris
 

Hi all,
I'm working with someone who is still using Window Eyes but trying to use JAWS more.
If he is in a list of audio files in file explorer in Windows 10 using Window eyes he can hear the file length as he arrows through the list.
If he unloads WE and loads JAWS he doesn't hear any of the information like file length spoken.
Does anyone know how to get JAWS to speak this information apart from going into the file properties with windows enter.
TIA.

Excuse me, but I accidentally pasted the wrong address. I thought I copied the correct address to the clipboard but I didn't. But then I re-corrected myself before you could even think. So before you tell me what she's looking for just know that I knew what she was looking for. Earlier somebody had asked for the subscription info for another list and it's still happen to be on my clipboard. Not everything is going to be picture perfect around here.

Hi all,

Excuse me but what has an echo list to do with microsoft teams? She's looking for a list concerning Microsoft Teams. It's right in the subject. It doesn't say anything about echo or echo products at all, please read more carefully. This is a real question asked by people who need this information for their jobs not to play music with their echo devices.

From Mack I have premium MB with a non expiring license. I have been advised that I need to turn off real time protection when I change to win 10 since windows defender is so much better in that version. I would like to run them both. should I exclude some folders from the scan in each program?

The Next Door app

Kay Malmquist
 

hi all,
I am wondering if this is just me.  When I am looking at things for sale in the Next Door app, I can go in to the add and see everything there except a way to send a message to the seller.  No matter what I click on, nothing happens.  Does anyone else have this problem and if so, can you help by sending a message to the next door team?  If you have a work around, I'd really appreciate hearing it.  Thanks much.

I wanted to control my network, not spectrum. Their always doing things to
my internet and i do not feel they are being very secure. The router does
not have a long enough range to reach all threw the apartment, mainly
because of where they positioned the equipment and they do not have wi-fi
extenders to work with their equipment. I had that discussion last night
when the network was not connecting once again in my room and in the front
bedroom. I went to the router page to see if I could fix it. I tried
changing channels and it still would not work, it kept telling me to
contact the provider. So i was on the phone for 40 minutes. SO they fixed it
and would not tell me what they did so I could prevent it from happening
again. They just said just call us again if it happens again. So i still do
not know why I repeatedly lose internet connection at night, during the day,
it is fine. I wanted 2 factor on the router but, they do not support it;
well, the guy said it can be done but, he does not recommend it; why? So
hopeing if I can get my own router, I would have some control and I could
have 2 factor and with wi-fi extenders, we would not keep losing connection.
I know i am really knew to this process but, I wanted vetter security and
more control over my home network. Thank you Heather

I wouldn't believe any sighted person who tells you something isn't accessible when they don't know how we do things. The router very likely is accessible if you use its web page interface. But the tech is probably correct about many things not being able to be changed since that is probably true for everyone.
Ath this point, is the problem just range or other things?

I want a router that pluggs in to the modem. The one they gave us keeps crapping out on us. Also need to maybe have wi-fi extenders to have solid connection threw out the apartment! Sometimes my network from the celluar is stronger than the wi-fi . I know it is because the cable guys installed in a not so centeral part of the apartment and said that was the only place for the set up. I was reading that they have set ups that work with alexa to control the network. It is not accessible to get in to my router and was told I cant change alot of things by spectrum. THey do not currently offer wi-fi extenders too! Thanks for any info! cheers Heather

Hi.

It depends on how much you want to spend.

Also, are you looking at replacing the cable modem? or would you want to buy a router that plugs into the modem?




Thanks.
