Re: Help with very unusual issue with no solution thus far

Rick Alfaro
 

Regarding my last message, I forgot to mention that the tracking issue I referred to is totally non-existent if I use NVDA instead of JFW and the Jaws version is the latest 2020 build. I have not tried 2021 as of yet.

Subject: [TechTalk] Help with very unusual issue with no solution thus far

 

Will attempt to describe this issue as best I can. I’ve brought this up with JFW support but no joy there.

 

This is on a very fast Cyber Power gaming PC running at 3.9 GHZ with 16GB of memory. The application exhibiting the issue Clipmate from ThornSoft development. ClipMate is a clipboard manager. This app has worked flawlessly for years now but things changed when I installed a 43 inch 4k monitor to replace a smaller one I had via and HDMI port provided on my video card.

 

After installing the larger monitor, JFW stopped tracking the program context menus with the window in a restored state. Maximizing the window with tracking somewhat for listviews but made no difference with the context menus. This pretty much has made the program fairly useless. I’ve tried bringing down the screen resolution from 2160 to 1080p which was what my old monitor was set to but it made no difference. I also updated the video card drivers directly from the OEM’s web site again with no difference.

 

If anyone has any other ideas, I’m all ears and will gratefully give them a try.

Re: NLS cartridges and BARD

You get a USB cable that has a Male end, which plugs into the computer, and a Female end which then plugs into the male end on the NLS cartridge.

Odd issue with OpenDrive.

Jessica M
 

Hi all,
I've been using OpenDrive rather heavily over the past few days, with the program workin fine until just a few minutes ago. I went to copy a folder, only to have the folder apparently spontaneously stop copying. I tried restarting the process, but nothing happened. I closed the folder, thinking to start over by going through the main folder again. When i opened OpenDrive, I could get to the shared folder itself, but when I entered on one of the content folders inside the shared folder, the program doesn't open the folder, and stays on the list of folders. I tried a reboot, and updated OpenDrive, and still no luck. Is this something om my end, or is OpenDrive itself having issues at the moment?


Re: NLS cartridges and BARD

Loy <loyrg2845@...>
 

You can purchase a cable with standard male USB  on one end and a female USB connector on the other to connect to the cartridge.  You can purchase these from the places you purchase the cartridges or at an electronic store.

Re: 5g and me

Our computer guy, who primarily does commercial, has a cell phone, but not a smart phone. That really surprised me. Right now, my husband doesn't even have a smart phone. For both, I think it is economics; they see no reason for a smart phone, and in my husband's case right now, for a cell phone at all. Coincidentally, they happen to have originally come from the same state - could be they grow 'em thrifty there.

Same here. Match the output specs of the OEM charger exactly or fairly closely and you're generally good to go. I have never had an issue with a charger harming a device. The biggest/worst difference was when using one with a significantly lower power output than the OEM model which meant significantly longer charge times (and that was one I didn't buy, but borrowed).

As an aside with regard to the earlier parts of this conversation, as a professional computer tech who works primarily with residential clients, I'd say that at least 50%, if not more, of my clients would consider "a couple of hundred dollars" a major price difference that they'd have to think long and hard about. And now being at a time of life where I'm not working full time, and not being "made of money," I understand and respect that. I've never owned a flagship smartphone or computer (even though I'm in the business) because both are way more than I've ever needed as far as their capabilities go and way more than I need to spend as a result.

And to a lot of people, it is important. the majority of people don't have enough money that they can just throw it away. Something like forty [percent of Americans, in a survey taken before the pandemic, didn't have enough savings to last for one month if an unexpected misfortune occurred.

Of course, people who can easily afford to throw money away are welcome to do so, but many people who could, still don't want to.

Your sstatements about computer useage and hardware may all be correct.
That fact is that another 500 or 1000 dollars to a fairly large per centage of the population, doesn't matter. Tey feel that spending more money will serve them better.

I've seen others, and I believe you, too, make the future proof argument for buying a more powerful computer than the person's anticipated needs because it will be useful longer because you never know when your needs will change.
I've always thought such arguments were not good ones. For one thing, a lot of people will continue to use computers in about the same ways as now and if they do use them in more demanding ways, those will not likely tax the computer if they buy a computer that isn't just barely powerful enough to do what they want.

Also, technology continues to become more powerful and cost less. So, in five years, the projected reliable life of a computer, you will be able to buy one to meet your needs then for less money than you are paying now. In addition, though it’s a gamble, many computers last more than five years, many significantly more. Every dollar you overspend to be future proofed that you didn't need because your needs didn't change and all the extra power of your computer remains unused is increasingly wasted, the longer your computer lasts.

It makes much more sense to buy a computer that is powerful enough to meet your current needs well if you don't anticipate major changes in how you will use your computer and are reasonably confident that you won't do things in future that will exceed the ability of the computer.

Spending one-thousand dollars to future proof a machine, just in case, maybe you use your machine much differently in the future, when you could spend five hundred dollars today and three hundred dollars in fived or seven or eight years for another machine that you would probably use in similar ways as you do now or not much, is a bad idea.

Hi Brian,

Just for clerification, I have confirmed 5g signals do exist in my area for my network. Even without the massive bandwidth, the lower latency itself will probably result in better quality improvements. Also, all versions of the IPhone by default include 5g.

Going to a 5G device now, when it is obscenely expensive, and where the ability to exploit 5G is limited to a very few locations, seems to me to be a supreme waste.

And 3 years is an eternity in the world of technology, and smartphones in particular, and what's Apple's flagship now, will be mid-range in 3 years, and much cheaper.

Going to a 5G smartphone now, unless you live in a major metropolitan area, is locking your money up in a frozen asset you cannot even use for its intended purpose.

Hi Walter,

 

Those voices do not come with NVDA.  Those are bought as an Add On to NVDA.  I bought them from some place called Code-something.  Sorry, their name starts with the word Code, but I can't remember the rest of their name.

 

However, I had nothing but problems with their Vocalizer voices for NVDA. 

 

In Win 10, I started using the Voices that come with Win 10, and I use the one named David, which to my ears is clean and clear enough for my uses. 

 

I like the Vocalizer voices and use them with JAWS all the time, but just had funky problems using them consistently with NVDA.

 

Others mileage may vary.

If you use an email client have you checked the spam/junk folder on mymts.net?

More than likely that email provider is bouncing the list messages
though, which is probably why that group owner recommended gmail
instead.

Ask the group owner or moderator to send you a bounce probe message, then once you get it, make sure to activate the link at the end.  It's worth a shot.

If that doesn't do it, I'd check with your e-mail service provider to see if they're blocking whatever the domain name groups.google.com.  This would be very odd, but it's not beyond the realm of possibility.
