Brian,

I would respectfully disagree. There is an enormous casm between the forth gen, vs 11th gen which are available now. It isn't just a couple generations. Not only that, if you had read of the lab vulnerabilities, spectre and meltdown, and all the dozens of  other speculative execution vulnerabilities after that that got discovered, you will know that intel has been pumping out microcode updates like a machine. As a result, these updates have utterly trashed older processors, ones produced before skylake especially. I/O performance is destroyed, and  from what I can tell at least 70% and up performance losses exist. You can disable these fixes with the registry, to get all of this back,  but  a lag still remains. My i5 4200M laptop processor used to be ok, not good by any stretch, but ok. I could multitask when CPU intensive tasks ran. But now this is a distant dream, and large apps and websites cause lag on this, and microcode updates that can't be reverted are the cause. So if nothing else, I would suggest that the OP   buy a current machine, not only because of the enormous arcetechtural difference between haswell and current processors,  but also because  of the constant new vulnerabilities that are being found and the enormous performance impact these have.  In fact, I would suggest getting an AMD machine to stop this, and avoid a bulk of speculative execution vulnerabilities.

An i7, of any vintage, is likely to be not only adequate, but way more than is needed, for home users.  WiFi is only as fast as its slowest link, so depending on what WiFi router you have (and if you're using it), it may make no difference.  RAM frequency, meh.

One must match tool to task, and there are a lot of ancient machines that are still way, way more than adequate for many common uses.  Processing power has far outstripped most users' (including business users') ability to come anywhere near to exploiting it all.

The idea that only the latest and greatest is good is patently false.

Re: dvd capacity for iso file

Hello again Brian

I changed the subject. I downloaded the iso file but it is 4.6 GB and my DVD disc which I bought long ago is 4.4 GB. Does one get DVD discs with larger capacity?

Fanus,

           The issue you're having sometimes occurs, and no one ever really knows why (and I'm sure the actual underlying causes are myriad).  What I suggest is following these instructions: Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

            And if you want to be "very strict" with your machine during that process, make sure it's not connected to the internet.  When you have the ISO file you already have all of the essential components needed to do the repair install or feature update.  If there are additional updates that were put in place after Microsoft issued the ISO file then those will be applied via the normal Windows Update process after you again establish internet connectivity.

Re: Accessible free PC driver upgrade software

Hello Brian

Thanks so much. The link in the document  rerouted me to the latest windows 10 media creation tool but I suppose that is ok to install that following the directions in the document you gave. I suppose there would then not be a repair option because its the latest version so I shall have to install it from the iso file but I shall see what happens.

Re: Jaws speaking selected text

Do you have any way of accessing your old computer?  If so, export the settings from the old computer, save the file, transfer the file to the new computer and import the Jaws settings to the new computer.

Subject: [TechTalk] Jaws speaking selected text

Hi

I'm running Jaws 2020 on a windows 10 laptop with Office 365.

For some reason, Jaws isn't speaking text when I select words using
shift control and the arrows anymore. I've done a search but can't find
any settings I need to change to make this happen. When I ran Jaws and
Word on my old windows 10 laptop selected text was announced when shift
control and an arrow was pressed. This is just happening in word and not
my mail program. So there must be a setting somewhere I need to tweak.
Can someone help please?

Tia.

The only thing that would bother me about laying a tower style computer on its side is the fact that the sides of the tower is where the computer gets a lot of ventilation for cooling purposes.  But, if you're drawing enough cool air through the front and back then I guess that wouldn't be a worry since its been working well for you.

Amazon Echo Shopping Lists

Dear all:

I’m late to the game with the eCho device and as a born sceptic where these always on devices were concerned, I was pleasantly surprised the other day.

The echo shopping list feature when paired up with the Alexa app is very handy in deed!
I add items to my grocery list via echo and then looked at the list on the Alexa app. For curiosity’s sake, I then shared the shopping list to the notes app. Imagine how surprised I was to discover that echo had sorted it in the note by categories: dry goods, meat/seafood, produce, etc.

Since several other echo users I spoke with didn’t know about that, thought I’d share to this list for the other newbies like me! Happy shopping!

Re: Needing a Command to read if a letter is Capitalized

Mike B.
 

Yo Alan,
 
Whenever you modify a speech / sound scheme it puts a file in your ENU folder.  For example if you modified the Classic Scheme you would have a file in the ENU folder that would, read like this:
Classic (Modified).SMF
 
If you tinkered with the same scheme again the ENU file would read like this:
Classic (Modified 2).SMF
 
And if you tinkered with the same scheme again the ENU file would read like this:
Classic (Modified 3).SMF
 
So delete any ENU files of the same name as the scheme you screwed up and that scheme will go back to its default scheme name and settings in theSpeech & Sound Schemes Settings Center folder.  You can call me if you need more help.

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers & Rams!

Hi Alan,

 

You have to modify a speech and sound scheme to make Jaws report, Cap or Capital, on a capital letter.  Below are 2 sets of steps if you want to try them.  Step #2 is the easiest.

 

#1:


1. Open the Settings Center with, Jaws / Insert key + 6, on the number row,
& press, control, shift + D, to open Settings Center default all
applications
2. Arrow down to Speech & Sound Schemes, right arrow to open.
3. Arrow down to, Modify Schemes...., & press the spacebar to open.  Don't
press enter here!  Pressing enter will close the Settings Center.  Also make
note of what scheme is highlighted as the default scheme.
4. Tab to, edit selected scheme button, & press the spacebar.
5. You should be on the, General Page / tab so, control + tab to the Misc. page / tab, & tab 1 time into the list of options.
 Arrow down to, Cap             Speak text           Using SingleCapVoice

One way is to switch the speech scheme.  If you switch to proof reading (attributes) you will hear "cap" instead of the pitch increase.
The down side is that you also get attribute changes; however, you get a voice change, not announcement of "bold" "underline" and so on.
One could modify that scheme so it just says cap, but I've never taken the time to do that.

So, is there an equivalent command in jaws or is the pitch change the only
way? I like the way my iPhone handles this by announcing a capital letter.

Bob,

Go into the menus with capslock-n and choose preferences, then speech and
it's in there.

An i7, of any vintage, is likely to be not only adequate, but way more than is needed, for home users.  WiFi is only as fast as its slowest link, so depending on what WiFi router you have (and if you're using it), it may make no difference.  RAM frequency, meh.

One must match tool to task, and there are a lot of ancient machines that are still way, way more than adequate for many common uses.  Processing power has far outstripped most users' (including business users') ability to come anywhere near to exploiting it all.

The idea that only the latest and greatest is good is patently false.

Hello,

No it isn't.  This processor is ancient, more than 7 years old. The wi fi module is also out of date, as is the ram frequencies.

Re: Sudden problem with printer

I unfortunately don't have another computer to access, but if I had
had one, I would've discovered the real problem when unplugging it
from this computer! I rechecked the USB cord and found that the
d--ned thing was in fact unplugged! Your point is well taken, because
I've had similar problems to yours in the past with other printers.

Thanks,

Nance

Nancy Shackelford
 

Printer works. Rechecked the USB cord, which I had done before, but I
apparently got a hold of the wrong cord; I give speeches about
trailing a cord all the way, and I failed to do that! So, problem
solved!

Thanks,

Nance
