Re: winamp 5.666 won't play an audio cd

Gene
 

In Windows 10k, you can't select file types that way. Others will tell you how to make Winamp the default program if you want to select all file types. You do it in Windows. Some programs don't allow you to make them the default from within the programs in Windows 10. My guess is that the registry has changed so the program can't make the changes any longer.

If you want to make specific files play in Winamp but not have it be the default, do you know how to do this using open with in the context menu when you are on a file with an extension you want a program to use?

Hi Gene,

Sorry I'm just getting back to this but finding the file types using
your instructions worked, but play audio cd's was already checked.

Interestingly everything in the list of file types was supposedly
unselected and I couldn't figure out how to select them because hitting
the spacebar on each one didn't select it at least according to jaws
2020, but yet when I want to play an mp3 it comes up in winamp.

Hi all,

I've been trying to play an audio cd for the last few minutes and winamp

unfortunately I didn't pay attention to what did play it I just know

Windows 10 has a feature, I don't know what it is called, that allows you to restore Windows while keeping your programs or while not keeping them. I don't know enough about the feature to discuss it in any detail but it may give you something to inquire about.

I don't know if it is better to try this or have the computer checked or just get a new one. We don't know how old it is and whether it is worth spending any meaningful amount of money to diagnose and perhaps repair in terms of the computer itself.

Re: [Tec Talk] I am totally embarrassed at my last emails. sorry for the emails.

Hey don't feel embarrassed about anything computer. Computers are
difficult even for those who work with them every day. So here's my
worthless advice; First, try to make a image of what's on your hard drive.
It's like a mirror image,, maybe even another disk in the same computer that
you can copy everything on to. Two; you could be right about a hardware
problem, but probably not. You may need some sighted help, make sure
everything that can be is up-to-date. Jaws may say you have clicked the
correct checkbox but not really. I've had that happen several times.
There's something about a honest to goodness mouse click that the computer
likes better. Third; You can re-format the hard drive disk. Do you have
windows 10? If you do then; pushing the power button from the off position
three times and then holding in the power button for thirty seconds, will
erase everything and re-format the hard drive giving you a fresh start
including no JAWS. However windows key and enter will turn on narrator.
Narrator is getting better and will get you by long enough to re-load JAWS.
Before all of that try making sure updates are really turned on and working
properly. I too have used the Microsoft help desk and been disappointed.
Sad to say most of those helpers are from the Philippians and have less
knowledge than one would hope for.
So hopefully you'll get back to normal with your computer, I'm very sorry
for your problem, it's a bummer to have to suffer with those kinds of
discouragements. Good luck and keep the faith, sooner or later you'll get
everything working again.
Sincerely Leigh W.

freedom Scientific opens up again? The weird thing is we call them today and
all of their numbers just hang up do you even an automated response on any

Well I will start with google. Pros, she spells slower than alexa with
pauses. She plays podcast better too my opinion. She handles smart plugs
better that are not amazon based like the smart life and wemo. She has
more information on certain subjects. She can have several voices not
just
one voice. Her language data base is more extensive. Cons, it is hard to
pare smart items with google and she has to apps to control the speaker
instead of just one like alexa. She does not have as many apps that work
or connect with the speaker. You cant drop in on other speakers.
Alexa, pros, you have a wide range of connected devices to connect with
on
the speaker. She always has more skills to use; you can change her wake
word; you can drop in to different rooms and locations with your
contacts;
you can listen to music for free with amazon if you have prime; you can
order using the speaker or put something in the cart; if you have the
show, you can have face to face conversations across the country. Cons,
alexa has not have the spelling feature to spell slow if you are trying
to do dictation; her data base for information is not as good; amazon
has
some issues with their smart plugs that do not always work wich means
your
plugs do not work especially with their outages; not all their stuff is
fullally accessible for example, you cant turn on the feature that
allows
you to tell the speaker to delete everything that you said as the app
does
not allow vo users to access that on the app; you have to have prime to
make the nost out of the speaker.
Both speakers will: tell the time and temp, give directions, tell jokes;
give sports scores; play games; tell stories; give the news. OH, forgot
,
it easyer to make routines with alexa as you only have one app to deal
with while google makes you use 2 apps.
This is just off the top of my head.

plugs to work, some times google does a better job than alexa. Sometimes

google
does a better job of spelling words than alexa, she actually pauses

Subject: [TechTalk] Removing Checks in File Explorer

Hi, on Windows 10, while navigating File Explorer, can someone remind
me how to make JAWS stop saying “checked” after every file and folder?
I just want it to read the file or folder title. I can’t remember how
I did this on my main machine. Thanks for any help.--Joe

difficulty using postal service website using jaws

II want to change my address, but there is no edit field at all for putting the date in. The other fields are showing, but there doesn't seem to be an edit field or even a date picker that might possibly be activated. The combo box for what type of phone--home or mobile--does not read the items either, even with using alt down arrow to make sure combo box is open. I'm not sure what to do when there's not a clear edit field or is there a Jaws key command I'm not aware of that will bring hard to find fields more into focus? Thanks.
 


Creating a recurring event in Google Calendar

Leo Bado
 

ello everyone,

I have a couple of teachers who sent me invitation links for  two different courses. One of the invitation links is a Zoom link, the other one is a Google Meet link. I want to add  each one of these links to a recurring event in Google Calendar, so that I can received pushing notifications in both my cell phone and my PC, but I can’t figure out how to do it. Obviously, I’m not the host, so  this makes things more difficult because whenever I google how to create recurring events, all I’ve gotten is how to do it when you are the host creating a new event, but not when you are just a guest who has received an invitation link.

If someone knew how to do this and wanted to share the info, I would be highly appreciated!

 

Best,

     Leo Bado.
