I'm sorry it didn't work. I believe you said there is one player you can play files in. If you set that player as the default, do things play as desired?

Hi, Gene,

It isn't clear about pressing Control to open a dialog box. Usually the
control key bky itself does nothing. It needs a modifier.

You can probably play files within the program, even if you can't by
pressing enter on them in the list outside of the program.
In Windows media player, press control to open the open dialog. Shift tab
once or twice, I'm don't know just how things are set up in Windows 10.
You can get to a list of files and folders. If you back space you will
move
back from where you are toard the c drive. If you backspace more, you
will
be in a list and computer will be one of the items. Press enter
Move to the drive, I think it is an external drive, and press enter. Move
to where you want to be as usual on the drive. Try playing a file. After
that, we can see if you can play files as you wish, perhaps selected files
or an entire folder.

Good Morning, Blaster,

I had no trouble removing Web Adviser.

when it comes to File Associations, I had limited success.

Thanks to Gene, I was very careful to select WAV. When I entered on that,
it
showed that Windows Media Player was the default player. I accepted this
and
closed that out.

I still couldn't play wivefiles. I went further and found that I couldn't
play MP3 and MIDI files.

In one of my many trials I got one file to play but I have no idea how
that
happened.

Where am I, except lost, of course?

Joe, Everything I wrote was for Windows 7, not Windows 10 as you
mentioned that in your first post. The ninite.com website removes all
adware before you download it to your PC, that's why I suggested the
K-lite codec pack, and yes it does work in Windows 7. But since it
opened and played in the media player classic it's safe to assume
you've got a working codec for .wav files installed. So, If you want
to get rid of web advisor first then go to your control panel, then
find the add and remove programs section and remove the McAffee Web
Advisor. You will probably need to remove the entire McAfee suite if
it's like all of the other McAfee products that I've dealt with in the
past. I think the only other option, that is if you want to keep the
McAfee suite, is to temporarily disable it when you need to accomplish
a task that it's blocking and I think that's got to be done in
whatever browser your using. I'm no fan of McAfee, so I'd get rid of
it, but that's your choice.

As far as the file explorer issue, I'm not sure why your getting a
different fly-out window on the open with screen, as arrowing down
should give you a list of programs associated with .wav files followed
by the choose another program option. Mike may have something there,
so try arrowing to the right instead of down to see if the menu is
horizontal. If that doesn't work, we're not sunk yet, Press the
windows key on your keyboard and type "file associations" in the type
in field and press the enter key. This should open the file
associations window, where you can skim through the list until you
find the .wav format and then choose the program you want to associate
with this file type manually. Follow the instructions at the top of
the page and see if that works for you. If you have any troubles, just
post back here to the list.

HTH,
Blaster

Hi, Blaster,

I now can say that you are on the track. Here's what happens:

First, I cannot get to my wavefile folder with Explorer. It does not
show me

everiy folder. It just shows Documents and Libraries, and control
panel.

I therefore bypassed that step and went to the folder by running it.

I selected a wavefile.

I pressed the context menu key and found Open with.

I wasn't given a choice. It showed Media Classic, O.

I pressed O, and the highlighted selection began playing.

This is the only selection which played.

I guess this is because I could not follow your outline. I suspect
that
you

are getting this outline from Win 10 a nd not 7, but I don't really k
now
that.

I was able to download a Win 7 codecs pack, but other things came
along,
including Winzip Updater.

I can't uninstall it and other unasked for programs. There's Web
Advisor,
and it won't uninstall and it won't let me install anything else until
Web
Adviser is uninstalled, and looks like it won't ever want to
disappear.

It reminds me of Congress where we get what we want along with other
things

we would never care to have.

There you have it. I hope you or some others can figure out what I can
do to

solve the wavefile problems and get rid of uninvited guests.

Joe, You don't really have to know what the codec files are exactly,
only that they are installed on your pc. Windows will pick and
choose
which ones it wants whenever it wants one. But, Here's something else
you can try. Just in case your file associations got a little mixed
up between audio programs, you can re-associate the .wav file type
with your media player. I'm not sure if specific codecs are tied to
file associations, but it's worth a try.

Press the windows key on your keyboard and tap the letter E key to
open a file explorer window.

Navigate to a folder where you keep your .wav files.

Arrow up or down to select a .wav file.

Press the context key on your keyboard, shift key plus the F10 key if
you use a laptop, to open the context window.

Arrow up or down until you come to the selection titled "Open with"
and press the right-arrow key to open the fly-out window.

Even though media player is in this list, arrow down to the selection
titled "choose another program" and press the enter key.

In this window, Tap the tab key until you get to a list of programs,
In this list, arrow down to media player and then tap the tab key to
jump down to a check box that says always use this program to open
the
associated file type.

Press the space bar to check the box and then tab to the OK button
and
press the enter key.

You'll be taken back to the file explorer where your .wav file should
still be selected, so press the enter key on it and see if it opens
in
media player and starts to pley.

Good luck,
Blaster

Hi, Listers,

No

There is where I am now. I do a lot with wave files. My CD

In case it means anything, Goldwave permits me to play wave

Hi Pablo. JAWS has to be installed on the server side, if you're going to use JAWS in a virtual environment. It does not have to be activated on the server side, because the license is controlled by the local computer, or your computer in this case. This allows you to fully connect to the server side, or the VDI that is set up for you. I would think that it would be a reasonable accommodation for you. Some VDI's are reset after you sign off, meaning you have to configure JAWS every time. This is becoming more and more common, given security concerns. As long as you have a way of launching JAWS on the server side, you should be good. In one particular instance, we have to use Narrator to get things going, and then once the VDI is fully loaded, then we can launch JAWS.
There are a lot of ways you can do this.

Hi Pablo. I've been sifting through my messages from the last two weeks and saw yours. I have used JAWS in a Citrix environment, VMWare and also RDP. Citrix and VMWare seem to work the best. A lot depends on band width. If you have good connectivity, things work well. Of course, you need to have the Remote access add-on license on your version of JAWS, which is an additional 200 bucks.

new Lenovo laptop

Hi

Well I got and set up my new Lenovo laptop yesterday. It’s this one…

 

https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-IdeaPad-Processor-Graphics-81W0003QUS/dp/B0862269YP/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=lenovo+laptop+ryzen+5&qid=1610041184&sr=8-3

 

And I have to say it works great! The keys are about as big as desktop keyboard keys and they have a nice feel to them and press down nice so I know I am typing stuff. But more importantly is the fast 256gb ssd drive! Pair that with the ryzen5-3500U 3.7ghz processor, 8gigs ddr4 ram, and wow this thing is really really fast! So that being said, I highly recommend this Lenovo laptop!

And that being said, I am now selling my old hp laptop if anyone is interested. Aside from a few sticking keys which could be fixed with a cleaning or plugging in a USB keyboard, the old hp laptop works fine. It has an AMD a6 processor, 2.4ghz, 500gig hard drive, normal, not sdd, 4gigs ram. Latest windows10. So if anyone is interested I would like to sell my old laptop for $120 including shipping. I accept paypal for payments. And if interested just send me an email off list at:

Joshknnd1982@.... In case the email address does not go through, that is:

J, o, s, h, k, n, n, d, 1, 9, 8, 2, at sign, g, m, a, I, l, dot, c, o, m.

Re: which processor should i choose for my new laptop?

Juan Gonzalez <jgonzalezh614@...>
 

Both Intel’s and AMD’s latest processors are great with screen readers, the only time you will see any difference is if you are doing heavy gaming or video/photo editing or any processor  heavy stuff.

You won’t go wrong with either. Its more of your choice of laptop you want. For me I look at the processing speed and the amount of cores. This computer I have has 6 cores divided into 12 that run at 2.6 ghz.

My first windows computer was a Gateway 2000 that had an AMD processor. I had it for twelve years and didn't have problems with that. I had other problems. Pam.

blind android users podcast episode number 4 is now ready for you to listen.

 

hi all.
in this jam packed episode of the blind android users podcast, we
continue the "Android setup" process we started last time.
this episode has chapter markers so if you listen to a player
supporting chapter markers you can listen to the section you want
first.
Warren continued showing you how to setup your android phone from
where he left off.

We next had a chat with a special guest, Professor Paul Ruvolo, the
developer of the "Clew" app.
"Clew aims to change our world when it comes to indoor navigation.
For the time being, however, "Clew" is only available for the iPhone
at the following URL:
https://apps.apple.com/us/app/clew/id1268077870
From the sounds of it, however, seems like Professor Ruvolo is going
to look into bringing it to Android shortly and I can't wait!
We then moved on to the "my android journey" segment of the podcast,
and our friend, Tony Sohl, takes us on a journey of his android.

Re: Virtual desktop infrastructure

Michael Mote
 

Hi Pablo. JAWS has to be installed on the server side, if you're going to use JAWS in a virtual environment. It does not have to be activated on the server side, because the license is controlled by the local computer, or your computer in this case. This allows you to fully connect to the server side, or the VDI that is set up for you. I would think that it would be a reasonable accommodation for you. Some VDI's are reset after you sign off, meaning you have to configure JAWS every time. This is becoming more and more common, given security concerns. As long as you have a way of launching JAWS on the server side, you should be good. In one particular instance, we have to use Narrator to get things going, and then once the VDI is fully loaded, then we can launch JAWS.
There are a lot of ways you can do this.

Does this mean that the version of Jaws installed on the server doesn't need to be activated?
Is there a way to access to the information on the server through the command prompt?
I don't know why I have the feeling that I will not be allowed to install Jaws on the server.
Thanks

Hi Pablo. I've been sifting through my messages from the last two weeks and saw yours. I have used JAWS in a Citrix environment, VMWare and also RDP. Citrix and VMWare seem to work the best. A lot depends on band width. If you have good connectivity, things work well. Of course, you need to have the Remote access add-on license on your version of JAWS, which is an additional 200 bucks.

Re: Problem with email delivery.

Carolyn Arnold
 

I have tried the manually typing. However, I went into
Outlook Options, turned off Auto-Complete, emptied the
Auto-Complete list. I have sent her two emails with no
Undeliverable message emails. I told her what you suggested,
so we give you our thanks for a solution!

Just manually type the address. I believe you can turn
autocomplete off but it isn't necessary. Autocomplete puts
an address on screen before you finish typing but the more
you type, it may change the address and if you type
everything, it does nothing. What you type replaces
whatever autocomplete previously placed in the field. So
try manually typing the entire address and see if that
eliminates the problem. After that test, list members will
know whether other suggestions to avoid autocomplete in this
case would help.

I'm not sure what is occuring. If you check and see that

to both addresses. it sounds as though the messages are
going to the correct address and to the incorrect address.

There are ways to place an address in a message using
contacts that don't involve autocomplete. If you don't know
how to do that with your specific program, ask here.

Meantime, try manually writing the entire address in the to

I really doubt it. A delivery failure message would result
from a delivery failure, not from an unsent message. An
unsent message has never been attempted to be delivered.

How long and how often do you receive the undelivery
message? When mail can't be delivered, you may receive a
number of failure messages over a period of many days. the
messages may say something like this was the third delivery
attempt, we shall continue to try two more times. Your
message may not have said that but at this point, wait to
see if the messages stop.
They should stop by themselves.
