Re: can't uninstall dropbox

Vicki W
 

I found three ways to solve the problem. I chose the easiest, just install Dropbox. There is then the option to uninstall it once it's reinstalled. Well, it worked and it's still working without reinstalling it, so why mess with what works?

I sure would love to know what caused all of this crazy stuff, especially all of those files showing up in my documents when I access the documents folder one way and looking normal when using another.

Thank you for your help.

Vicki

But if you look for folders, don't delete the actual Dropbox folder with the content you uploaded. Ivf you do, I think you will lose all those files from Dropbox because it will syncronize and see nothing on your machine.

You could go through all the various folders and delete all remnants of Dropbox, but I would think that if you reinstalled Dropbox it would overwrite any corrupted files that might be on your computer. If you decide to remove all old files remember to look in your User Name folder under AppData / Local & Roaming for Dropbox folders / files as well.

Subject: [TechTalk] can't uninstall dropbox

Hi,

It seems as though Dropbox, in all of the confusion from yesterday, has been moved to a place where it doesn't belong, at least it's not located there on my other computer. The shortcut tells me it doesn't work because the location to the dropbox in my start menu doesn't match the shortcut.

I tried deleting the shortcut and it still won't work.

I have a version of Dropbox to install, but since this version or whatever it is doesn't seem to behaving correctly and isn't located in the correct spot, I decided to just completely uninstall it. I went into the programs on the control panel, selected uninstall dropbox, and because it isn't working, I get a message that it can't be uninstalled because it doesn't seem to be installed in the first place.

Advice please? Can I just delete the folders and pretend they were left behind somehow in the wrong spot and reinstall the program or should I leave it alone and just try to install the new copy? I hate to leave corrupted files behind.

Vicki





Re: Dropbox and pCloud

Gene
 

Are you using the screen-reader's system tray dialog or the actual System Tray? If something doesn't work one way, truy the other. In this case, Dropbox no longer works properly with the system tray dialog your screen-reader makes available but it does if you use the actual system tray.

Thanks to David for vouching for pCloud.

As for Dropbox, if you click on it from the system tray, there's
silence. You might be able to tab around and eventually get it to tell
you to press Enter to open Dropbox, but it's hit or miss. Even once
you succeed at opening the right window, it seems more difficult to
find Preferences. I generally like Dropbox, but its attention to
accessibility when it comes to Windows leaves something to be desired.
So far on iOS it seems fine.

Hello,

Does anyone know if there are JAWS scripts for Dropbox? The website
accessibility has grown increasingly bad, and even the desktop app
seems to have gotten worse in terms of simple things like checking
free space and adjusting sync settings.

Also, does anyone have experience with pCloud? I'm testing out the app
now before deciding whether or not to buy into their lifetime plan.
Some of the features are not accessible, like adding passwords and

You may get information you find useful by doing a Google search for Dropbox corrupt, uninstall or reinstall
I found one possibly relevant result. I didn't look much further so there may be more farther down. I don't know if it matters if you follow it but there is possibly relevant information.

Re: issues with two program crashes

Gene
 

That's good that things are as they should be except for Drop Box. While I don't know this of course, I think reinstalling DropBox will likely solve the problem. I don't know if you should uninstall the program and reinstall it or just reinstall it. You could have tried the same with Google. I don't know if that would have been preferable or if running a restore point would have been. I don't think it is a good idea to run multiple restore points unless you think that may be the best solution and you think you might be running restore points that were after the problem started. There is a small risk that restore points will cause problems.

Yes, they are and right after I sent the message, I decided to go into
computer, user and access my documents that way instead of the shortcut on
my desktop. So, when I did that, everything in my documents was correct. I
tried the desktop shortcut again and there wer 4985 files and folders,
everything from all of my favorites, my e-mail folders and who knows what
else! I deleted the shortcut, went back into my computer, user and created a
new shortcut and it's normal.

As far as Google Chrome and my disappearing restore points, I opened up
Google this morning and it worked. Dropbox still does not.

My 5 restore points that disappeared last night are still missing. I have
zero restore points.

You may have to uninstall and reinstall the programs, but if you have system restore points before the problem but not that will cause you to have to redo a lot of settings or reinstall a lot of other programs, you might want to try a restore point.

Hi Vicki,

It's quite safe to delete the Dropbox Cache folder.

Open the run dialog with windows r, and paste

%userprofile%\\Dropbox\.dropbox.cache\

then either delete the items inside, or delete the qebcobkqbgpbzfynfuwbof folder.

The file in Dropbox is:

(C:\Users\username\Dropbox\.dropbox.cache\qebcobkqbgpbzfynfuwbof\placehol

Anyone know how I can replace this file and what to do with Google?

Thanks.

JAWS2021 Beta V 2009.13.40 Download Link + What's New

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Here's the J2021 Beta download link for both 32 & 64 bit systems, what's new in this release and a link to the FSCast that has demonstrations.
 
 
Download Link 32 & 64 Bit:
 
 

• FSCast web page, provides demonstrations of the new and exciting features in the upcoming 2021 release.
 
 
 
• New Features in 2021
 
New Features Added in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2021
PictureSmart Improvements
 
Introduced in JAWS and Fusion 2019, Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A description of the image is then displayed
in the Results Viewer. To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by P to activate the Picture Smart layer. You can then press A to describe
a photo acquired from the PEARL camera or a flatbed scanner, F to describe a selected image file in Windows Explorer, C to describe the current control,
or B to describe an image on the Windows Clipboard.
 
JAWS and Fusion 2021 continues to expand this feature by offering several improvements including:
 
list of 3 items
• Describing images on web pages: If focused on an image that is part of a web page, such as a photo on Facebook, pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed
by C now describes the photo.
• Submitting images to multiple services to help improve accuracy: By default, images are submitted to Microsoft for analyzing. However, the Results Viewer
now contains a More Results link which submits the image again to additional services for analyzing and displays an updated description. You can also add
SHIFT to a Picture Smart command to use multiple services. For example, INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed by SHIFT+F, SHIFT+C, or SHIFT+B.
• Using Picture Smart in multiple languages: If you are using JAWS or Fusion in a language other than English and you attempt to use Picture Smart, JAWS
and Fusion will use machine translation to display descriptions in the particular language. You can also manually choose from 38 languages for displaying
results, configurable using the new Picture Smart Language option in Settings Center.
list end
 
Please note that these changes, especially the machine translation for other languages, is still experimental, so things may not always work as expected.
Results will improve as we continue refining this functionality.
 
For more information on Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed by QUESTION MARK or refer to the Picture Smart topic in the JAWS help.
 
OCR Text Directly into a Word Document
 
The Convenient OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature has been enhanced to support sending recognized text directly to Word. Convenient OCR enables
you to access images containing text that is part of the image and displays this information in the Results Viewer. This includes onscreen images such
as the graphical setup screen for an application, an inaccessible PDF opened in Adobe Reader, a currently selected image file in Windows Explorer, or a
document acquired by the PEARL camera or a flatbed scanner.
 
If Microsoft Office is installed on your system, you can now:
 
list of 2 items
• Use the new command INSERT+SPACEBAR, O followed by R to perform OCR on a selected image file in File Explorer or the Desktop and place the recognized
text directly into a Word document. You can also press the APPLICATIONS key and choose Convenient OCR to Word with JAWS or Fusion from the context menu.
• Use the new Open in Word link that appears at the top of the Results Viewer once the OCR process is complete.
list end
 
For more information about using Convenient OCR, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, O followed by QUESTION MARK or refer to the Convenient OCR topic in the JAWS help.
 
New Voice Assistant to Help with Various JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion Commands and Features
 
The new Voice Assistant provides a way to interact with JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion in Windows 10 using speech input. Supported languages include English,
Dutch, German, Spanish, and French. Ask it to help you out with various JAWS or ZoomText features using natural speech. This means that the same action
can be performed by more than one similar phrase instead of a single predefined voice command. For instance, to launch JAWS Settings Center, you could
say "Settings Center" or "change settings." Unlike keyboard shortcuts, which can be hard to remember, natural voice commands are an easier way to interact
with the JAWS or ZoomText software. Using voice input to control JAWS or ZoomText can also benefit users with certain conditions which prevent them from
using a keyboard effectively.
 
The JAWS Voice Assistant uses your computer's internal microphone or you can talk to it using an external microphone or headset. To tell the Voice Assistant
to begin listening for a specific command, there are three options:
 
list of 2 items
• Press the key combination, INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR (CAPS LOCK+ALT+SPACEBAR for ZoomText and Fusion).
• Speak a specific wake word which alerts to software to begin listening for a voice command, similar to using an Alexa or Google Home device. The wake
word is "Sharky" for JAWS and "Zoomy" for ZoomText and Fusion. Speak this word followed by a specific JAWS or ZoomText command, such as, "Sharky, list
links," or "Zoomy, increase zoom level."
list end
 
Note: The wake word is not available if you are using a Bluetooth microphone. In this case, you must use the keystroke before speaking the voice command.
 
list of 1 items
• From the JAWS main window, press ALT+U to open the Utilities menu, expand the Voice Assistant submenu, and then select Talk to JAWS. From the ZoomText
or Fusion main window, select Talk to ZoomText.
list end
 
When the Voice Assistant starts listening for a voice command, a short audio indicator plays, and a visual indicator is displayed. After hearing a voice
command, a different audio indicator plays until the command is processed. After processing, the visual indicator is removed, a different, short, audio
indicator plays, and the desired JAWS or ZoomText action is performed.
 
If the Voice Assistant does not hear anything, the message, "Sorry, I didn’t hear anything" is spoken. If the Voice Assistant does not understand or if
the voice command is not supported, the message, "Sorry, I didn’t catch that" is spoken.
 
Note: Since all voice recognition processing is performed over the Internet using Microsoft Services in the cloud, there will be a slight delay depending
on your connection. Be patient and experiment with different commands. This is a new technology being added to our software products and will continue
to change and evolve over time. We welcome your suggestions and feedback.
 
To turn off the Voice Assistant or change other options, such as whether or not JAWS or ZoomText listens for the wake word or to turn off the sounds, do
one of the following:
 
list of 2 items
• For JAWS, open the JAWS Utilities menu, expand the Voice Assistant submenu, and then select Settings.
• For ZoomText or Fusion, select the Tools tab, press DOWN ARROW on the Voice Assistant drop down button, and select Settings.
list end
 
To learn more and to view a full list of voice commands for specific actions, say "Sharky, help," or "Zoomy, help." You can also select Getting Started
from the Voice Assistant menu.
 
Here are a few commands you can try to help you get started.
 
For JAWS (Remember to say "Sharky" or press INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR before speaking each command):
 
list of 10 items
• Help
• Talk faster
• Talk slower
• Change settings
• Command search
• What time is it
• OCR PDF
• List links
• List headings
• List spelling errors
list end
 
For ZoomText or Fusion (Remember to say "Zoomy" or press CAPS LOCK+ALT+SPACEBAR before speaking each command):
 
list of 10 items
• Increase zoom level
• Zoom out
• Set zoom level to 5
• Where is my focus
• What time is it
• Activate speech
• Talk faster
• Open Reader app view
• Launch finder
• Change the color enhancement scheme
list end
 
Improved Microsoft Teams Support
list of 6 items
• If you press ENTER on a document in the Files list which opens the inaccessible document viewer, you can now press ESC to return to the files list. You
are also prompted to use the SHIFT+F10 context menu and open the document in the desktop application, which is the suggested method.
• You can now press ALT+1 through 5 to go directly to the first five tab pages.
• Pressing ALT+LEFT ARROW now automatically activates the back button from anywhere in Teams.
• You can now press ALT+H to hang up a call in progress.
• You can now press ALT+T to set focus to the Teams tree view, if visible. Note that it is usually only visible if CTRL+3 has been pressed to show the
teams and channels list. The screen should also be maximized to ensure this control is visible.
• Pressing ALT+R now raises or lowers your hand in a meeting.
list end
 
Teams also allows you to show meetings and calls in separate windows with fewer controls. To do this, press CTRL+COMMA to open Preferences and select the
check box labeled: "Turn on new meeting experience (New meetings and calls will open in separate windows. Requires restarting Teams.)" While JAWS specific
keystrokes for meetings and calls will not work in this split mode, Microsoft has their own set of keystrokes you can review by pressing CTRL+PERIOD.
 
New Keystroke for Changing the Punctuation Level
 
You can now press INSERT+SHIFT+2 on the number row to cycle through the four punctuation levels which controls how much punctuation JAWS and Fusion speak
while reading. The available levels are None, Some, Most, and All. Similar to toggling Screen Echo (INSERT+S) or Typing Echo (INSERT+2), the punctuation
level will revert back to the previous setting when JAWS or Fusion is restarted. To permanently set a punctuation level, use the JAWS Startup Wizard or
Settings Center.
 
Announce Most Recent Windows Notification
 
You can now perform the new layered command INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by N to have JAWS repeat the last notification that was spoken. Notifications include
an incoming Teams or Skype call, a recent Zoom message, a new email in Outlook, and more. If you use a Focus braille display, you can also press RIGHT
SHIFT+N (DOTS 1-3-4-5). To view and manage all your Windows notifications, use the Microsoft keystroke WINDOWS Key+A.
 
FS Support Tool for Gathering System Information
 
The FS Support Tool is a new utility that collects information about your computer and sends a report to our Technical Support and Software Development
teams to help us troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing while running JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion. You will typically be asked to run this utility
during a technical support session if it is determined that additional details about your system are needed. Some information that is collected includes:
 
list of 9 items
• System information such as processor, RAM, operating system, architecture, and more
• Event logs
• Version of Adobe Reader (if installed)
• Versions of all installed web browsers
• Information on installed Microsoft Office applications
• Crash dumps
• Installation logs
• Currently running system processes
• User settings
list end
 
The FS Support Tool can be started from the Help menu in JAWS, or the Support menu in ZoomText or Fusion and guides you through collecting and submitting
a report.
 
Announce Accessible Notification Events
 
By default, JAWS now automatically announces Windows generated accessible event notifications in both speech and braille. These types of notifications
are found in a variety of places including business bars in Microsoft Office. If you do not want to hear these announcements, open Settings Center and
clear the Enable Accessible Notification Events check box.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!


Re: issues with two program crashes

Yes, they are and right after I sent the message, I decided to go into computer, user and access my documents that way instead of the shortcut on my desktop. So, when I did that, everything in my documents was correct. I tried the desktop shortcut again and there wer 4985 files and folders, everything from all of my favorites, my e-mail folders and who knows what else! I deleted the shortcut, went back into my computer, user and created a new shortcut and it's normal.

As far as Google Chrome and my disappearing restore points, I opened up Google this morning and it worked. Dropbox still does not.

My 5 restore points that disappeared last night are still missing. I have zero restore points.

I've done three restore points. Now out of nowhere, over 4500 files from all
over my computer showed up in my documents. I've done a virus and malwear
scan and they come back clean.

You may have to uninstall and reinstall the programs, but if you have system restore points before the problem but not that will cause you to have to redo a lot of settings or reinstall a lot of other programs, you might want to try a restore point.

Hi Vicki,

It's quite safe to delete the Dropbox Cache folder.

Open the run dialog with windows r, and paste

%userprofile%\\Dropbox\.dropbox.cache\

then either delete the items inside, or delete the qebcobkqbgpbzfynfuwbof folder.

Anyone know how I can replace this file and what to do with Google?

Thanks.

Marvin, the presentation will likely be available on the BITS Web site
<https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bits-acb.org%2F&;data=02%7C01%7C%7C12b79780c9944072cd4508d8558e9740%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637353418198893893&amp;sdata=mDIR7EnoHzV%2B%2BRacXZ0CIK90nXnPtm%2FxS9dIlRYTyko%3D&amp;reserved=0>once it has been edited. Normally, BITS presentations
are only available for members of BITS. However, since this presentation
was open to the public my assumption is that the organization will also
release it for public distribution although I'm not 100% certain about
this as I am no longer a member of the BITS Presentations and Workshops
Committee. I would advise periodically checking their Web site from the
above link. Members will also receive announcements of when
presentations become available for download via the BITS mailing list.
The above link also provides details on the cost and benefits of being a
BITS member.
