Re: can a blind person set up a computer without sighted help?? and with the problems I am having, would it help?

The first question to ask, now that we know that Windows was upgraded, not installed as a new clean copy, is, did the computer run slowly immediately after the upgrade or did it become slow later. It would have been good if I had asked that. If the answer is that the computer ran slowly since the upgrade, I think the upgrade is by far the likely possibility. If the answer is that the computer ran well for awhile, then slowed down, I would look for other causes.

A lot of the causes you posit, may be causes, but they are unlikely, or without more information, I would consider unlikely. For example, defrag doesn't slow a computer down enough to account for the slowness complained of.

If the computer isn't a bottom of the line budget machine, and not a high end more or less gaming performance machine, it is likely to have 8GB of RAM. That is generally what is placed in machines aimed at the majority of computer users.

While your message is useful in that it may cause us to get more information about the machine and discuss other possibilities, at this point, without more information, I think the upgrade is by far a more likely cause.

Hi Gene,
I'm sorry, but I completely disagree with what you are saying here. There are several different reasons why Keith's PC could be running slow. Does he have enough Ram, What kind of processor is on his PC, how old is the PC, are there to many programs-apps running in the background, is there too many apps opened at the same time, does the PC have too much Bloatware, has he deleted any apps-Software he doesn't need or want, has he ever performed a Defrag, if so, when was that, is Windows 10 defrag feature automatically turned on, does he know when or if the PC is defragging, does this slowness happen when the PC is plugged in, are the batteries weak on his PC, is the PC overheating, how often does he restart the PC, what version of JAWS is he using, is the version of JAWS compatible with Windows 10, is there any malware on the PC, has he checked the power plan settings, is Cortana turned on, has he ever used the Disk Clean-up, so as you can see there are definitely several different reasons why the PC could be slow. As far as doing a reset, because his PC came with Windows 8, it will just go right back to Windows 8 if he does a reset, for the simple fact, reset is a wonderful feature, but it does revert right back to factory settings, in which he would end up with Windows 8. Keith wouldn't even be able to use JAWS during the process. I don't know if he wants that. Like I said the Reset feature in Windows 10 is a wonderful feature, and I'm sure the PC will run much faster, but then again, that gets rid of all the old Bloatware, and downloads new Bloatware, so in due time, the PC will start slowing down again. I'm sure there must be some way to download Windows 10 without so much Bloatware, but I'm just not for sure, as I'm also learning Windows 10 as I go along. My personal opinion is do some maintenance and see how the PC is running. I don't even know if Keith is willing to go through all that, or if he has some sighted assistance to help him with all that.

I doubt that such considerations are causing the slowness. As far as a
reset is concerned, if you do the reset or whatever it is called from within
Windowsw 10, you will get a clean copy of Windows 10. It doesn't matter
what the previous operating system was. If you did the restore to factory
state, which isn't a Wihndows 10 reset, then you would be back to Windows 8
but that's a completely different procedure and it isn't accessible. You
aren't even booted into Windows when you do the factory restore.

Hi Keith,

I’m sorry for my late reply, but I’ve been extremely busy. I wouldn’t
perform any reset, refresh, and definitely not a factory reset. The reason
I say this is because your PC came with Windows 8. Although, I would
definitely check the PC to see what apps are running in the background, what
apps are starting on boot up, how many apps are running at the same time,
before doing anything to the PC. You could also check how much disk space
you have on your PC. You could also check to be for sure you are getting
all the necessary updates, as well as drivers, you could also check and
delete any apps you might not need or want, in which this could also improve
performance on your PC, in which I think that would make a huge difference.
Having said all this, I’m thinking you are going to have to perform a defrag
on your PC, providing your PC doesn’t have a SSD, and if so, I wouldn’t do a
defrag. I know MS has machines set to defrag I think once a month, and this
is set as default. Although, some times that isn’t enough, but then again,
MS doesn’t know what you will be doing with your PC either, so sometimes we
have to defrag more than just once a month, but then again, it really all
depends on what you are doing with your PC. Matter of fact, I checked my
Windows 7 to see why it is running much faster than my new Windows 10, and I
apparently set my Windows 7 to defrag once a week, and that is because I do
quite a bit with my Windows 7. I checked my Windows 10, and sure enough, MS
has it set as the default to defrag once a month, so I will be changing that
as well, as deleting some gremlins that came along with Windows 10. Smile!
So you have to also take in to consideration what you are doing with your
PC, and only you know that. I noticed you said you are using JAWS as your
screen reader, so what version of JAWS are you using? I don’t know how but
for some reason, I didn’t increase the speech rate on JAWS when I installed
him on Windows 10, so I thought oh my goodness this Windows 10 is just to
slow, so it finally dawned on me to increase JAWS speech rate, and my Laptop
seems to be running faster now! LOL! Stupidity on my part! So as you can
see, you do have several different options in order to improve performance
on your PC, but it all depends on how much time and effort you might want
to put in to it. I definitely think it is well worth putting time and
effort in to it, but that is up to you. You could also call ms if you want
to, and explain to them the problems you are having, and see what they will
say. MS can also log in to your PC, and chances are they can tell what the
problem is, and tell you what to do about it, or they can do it for you. If
you are interested in calling them, I can give you their phone number
providing you are in the US, so just let me know. Keith don’t give up,
because like I said you do have several different options here.

No clue. I did not get jaws until they bought window eyes/gwmicro and I
installed jaws on the windows 10 computer. the computer came with windows 8
and I knew that I would be updating it to windows 10 and also knew that
window eyes (at it's last version) did not work on windows 10 OS.

Hi Keith,

Did the Laptop start slowing down right after your cousin installed Windows
10, or was it sometime later, like maybe some months or maybe a year later?
I ask these questions because the more information you can provide to us,
the more we can pinpoint the problem. As, I know this can be quite

I've had the laptop with windows 10 on it for 2 to 3 years. It originally

about 8 hours for the download and installation so I left it with him and he
got it back a couple of days later.

Keith,

How long have you had Windows 10? Do you have a Desktop or Laptop? I really
don’t think JAWS can slow down a PC though. Although, JAWS can be a little
flaky sometimes, but I just don’t think we can hold JAWS responsible for
this one! Smile! There has to be something else that is slowing down your
PC. I’m hopeing when I finally remove the bloatware from my Windows Laptop,
it will pick up some spead! Oh what I would give to have Windows XP again,
as I loved that XP. I know the days of Windows XP is long gone!

I've had a computer guy take a look at it and he said that besides some HP
proprietary software required to run the actual computer , I don't have any
bloat ware running on my system. he is not familiar with screen readers but
he said that jaws might be the cause of the slow down. And yes, I to am
trying to learn windows 10 and also jaws as I am a former window eyes user.
I still run a laptop with xp and window eyes and it is a heck of a lot

emailing or shopping on it, but I like the smoothness and the response and

Shrug. Needless to say, a lot of the internet and what not is cut off from
me because of the xp machine not being able to load most websites but hey, I
prefer getting things typed out on my xp wordpad rather than typing a line

win 10 to catch up and actually speak the line I just typed.

Hi Keith,

I’m not very familiar with Windows 10, but I’m learning! LOL! As far as
your pc running that slow, I would definitely check to see what apps might
be running in the background. Slow computers are often caused by too many
programs running simultaneously, taking up processing power and reducing the
PC's performance. That’s just my personal opinion though. I don’t know if
you are running a Desktop or Laptop like I am or not, but even though, I’ve
had my new Laptop barely 3 weeks, and I haven’t worked on it much this past

Smile! As far as using the Reset option, from my understanding, the reset
feature is a repair tool in Windows 10. You can use that, and you can
choose what you want to keep, and after the repair, that will reinstall a
fresh copy of Windows 10. I hope this helps a little, as I just can’t stand
a sluggish pc, I would rather throw it out the Window! Smile!

does this resetting reinstall windows completely, (aka download a new copy

upgraded from windows 8 to windows 10 when MS was offering the free update

very "laggy" and simple things like opening a folder can take up to 2

Hi Jim,

I’m sorry you’re still having this problem, as this can be quite
frustorating! Jim, if we had an idea is to what MS has already done on your
PC, we could at least alimanate some suggestions. I could say you could use
the reset feature, in which you would have the option to save your files or
remove them, and a fresh Windows would download, but then again, some of
your files could be causing you from downloading, so we don’t know if that
would help. I’m not really too familiar with Windows Ten, but I’m learning!
From my understanding, if you reset your PC and keep files,

This reset option will reinstall Windows 10 and keeps your personal files,
such as photos, music, videos or personal files. However, it will remove
apps and drivers you installed, and also removes the changes you made to the
settings. I think using the reset option, it can take maybe two or three
hours, if you decide to keep your files during the reset process. I also
think third-party software, system file corruption, system settings changes,
or malware should be fixed by resetting your PC though. I hope at least
this gives you something to think about, if MS hasn’t already done this.

Hi all, my computer won’t update, and hasn’t in months. Microsoft has tried
to fix the problem and they say they can’t fix the problem. So what if I
reset this computer to factory settings, would it eliminate problems like
this? I of course would have to store the programs I have now, but that can
be done. Anyway, I need your thoughts. I am running windows ten and jaws 18,
because I can’t install 2019, or 2020. Jim

such as photos, music, videos or personal files. However, it will remove
apps and drivers you installed, and also removes the changes you made to the
settings. I think using the reset option, it can take maybe two or three
hours, if you decide to keep your files during the reset process. I also
think third-party software, system file corruption, system settings changes,
or malware should be fixed by resetting your PC though. I hope at least
this gives you something to think about, if MS hasn’t already done this.

Hi all, my computer won’t update, and hasn’t in months. Microsoft has tried
to fix the problem and they say they can’t fix the problem. So what if I
reset this computer to factory settings, would it eliminate problems like
this? I of course would have to store the programs I have now, but that can
be done. Anyway, I need your thoughts. I am running windows ten and jaws 18,
because I can’t install 2019, or 2020. Jim


Re: alcatel go flip

I forgot one thing that has happened recently. The phohne, it is now a little over a year old, has developed a problem that is a little annoying. Moving around in the all apps menu doesn't work properly perhaps half or more of the time. You may not be on the item the speech says you are on. The solution, if the wrong thing opens is to close it. start over, and open something beyond what you want to open. Use the top of the circle to move to something beyond the item, then open it. Then close it and start over, opening the thing you want. That usually causes the correct thing to open.

Also, the phone crashes more. I may have found a command to reboot the phone after a crash but it isn't in the manual I found online, which appears not to be complete, just covering the most important aspects of the phone. It isn't clear to me whether the setting reboots the phone or restores it to factory settings. It seems that it reboots it but from what I saw in discussion forums, I wasn't sure.

This is just one phone and I have no idea if other phones may develop these problems in any number. I'm discussing it in case it has any baring on whether people might get the phone.

Re: alcatel go flip

Gene
 

Here is the message, slightly altered from the original, below my signature. I have also removed all quoted messages to make copying and pasting the material easy.

Gene

There are two buttons on each side above the number pad. At the top
left of the phone is the left soft button. The button on the right is the
right soft button. The bbutton below the left soft button is the answer
call button. It may do other things but I can't think of anything now.
The button below the top one on the right is the back button and it is also
the power button. Hold it when you want to boot the phone. You will feel a
vibration when the phone starts to boot. It is also used, when on the home
screen, to open a menu. Hold it until you hear lock. Use the up and down
arrow to see items in the menu such as restart, clean up memory, and one or
two others. If you open the menu and want to return to the home screen and
take no action in the menu, press the same button, the back button again.

To change how items are displayed so they are displayed in a list, press the
ok or enter button once when on the home screen. The all apps menu will
open. Press the right soft key. Up or down arrow to list and press enter.

When you are on the home screen and intend to stop using the phone but are
going to leave it on, open the all apps menu. If you are on the home
screen, the phone will talk when you don't want it to as things like time
change on that screen. if you open all apps, you are no longer on the home
screen. Use back to get to the home screen before using the phone if you do
this unless you want to open an app. You can answer the phone no matter
where you are. It will ring and, if the phone is closed, open it and it
will automatically answer. If it is already opened, use the answer button, the second one from the top at the left.

To hang up, press the back key. If the phone is dark, you will have to press it twice.

In all apps, if you up or down arrow a number of times you will get to
settings. Press enter. You will hear the word selected spoken three times,
then the settings menu will open. You can up and down arrow in the menu you
are in and you can right and left arrow to move to other menus.

You probably know this but is essential when learning the phone to listen to
the prompts. When you open something or are taking actions and then other
actions in something, listen for the prompts which are spoken after a pause
when you take an action. When you open the all apps menu, you should hear
speech but you often don't. Up arrow or down arrow to move from where you
are to another app. Then wait. You will hear actions you can take such as
enter select and right soft key, options.

Often enter for select doesn't mean anything useful and it often isn't what
is meant when used in Windows. It often means ok or enter to take an action
such as open the program you are on. Often, when you are on something or in
something where you can open different things, you will hear forward spoken.
This makes no sense. It is telling you that if you press enter, the thing
you are on will open.

When you open Voice Recorder, for some reason, no prompts after you pause
are spoken. Left soft key is new enter is start recording, enter is stop
recording and to save the recording press the back key once, wait a little,
then press enter. You will hear recording saved after a little while. the
recording program takes actions very slowly. Speech isn't implemented
properly in it and you have to wait much of the time for speech to stop
before an action is taken you give the command for.

there is no harm looking through the manual, but I doubt it will be very
useful. But you may learn this or that which may be of use. For example,
somewhere in the manual, it says something about rebooting the phone every
day. If you don't reboot the phone every day or two, especially if you use
it a good deal, it may crash or develop problems until you reboot. It may
crash on occasion anyway and you need to move the battery up on one end so
it isn't making contact for a few seconds, then return the battery to its
proper position. You then need to boot the phone.

You can dictate text messages using this phone and you can dictate names of files when renaming them from the default used when they are saved. Dictation has quirks but it often is faster and more pleasant than using the keyboard method of writing. I often have to dictate something two or three times to eliminate errors. To use dictation, hold enter, then speak. For some uses, you have to hold enter, the button in the circle, for about eight or ten seconds. I'm not sure just how long is necessary. For other uses, just a second or two is all that is necessary. I'll discuss dictation more if people are interested.

When you return to the home screen, note that one of the prompts says left
soft key, notifications. If you press it there, you will hear if there are
new notifications. Up and down arrow to hear them. To clear all
notifications, press the right soft key.

Outlook issues/questions

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
I'm using Office 365, and the last couple of days that when I'm going through
unread messages after I delete one Jaws doesn't move to the next message, it
says "zero items, to move to an item press the arrow keys." This doesn't happen
all the time but most of the time, if I arrow up/down then it'll move to the
next message, is there any way to have just move to the next message right away?
Also, sometimes when I'm in my inbox I'll get a message that pops up saying, "2
of 4 tasks have been completed successfully cancel all button," then it gives a
couple of percentages (I usually hit escape before it gets to this though) and
then goes away. Any idea why I might be getting this message, and how to prevent
it? I'm using Office 365, the latest Jaws 2021 and Windows 10 version 2004.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide!!!
Madison


Re: Help with C-Cleaner

Hi Veronica,
 
Here you go:
 
From: paul lemm
Hi,
 
 
Not a lot of people know that the built in windows disk cleanup as some additional features which you can’t see when running  disk clean up in the usual
way. The below options have been in windows I think since xp, maybe even longer and its completely accessible with Jaws, I’ve always been surprised that
windows don’t add these options to their standard disk cleanup tool, but I guess they are advance settings so don’t want the average user deleting stuff
they might later want. So that being said  I should probably point out to anyone using the extended disk cleaner settings I mention below to only delete
stuff you know you don’t want/need. So its really easy to access just open the dialogue with the keystroke, Windows key + R, and type the following 
 
cleanmgr sageset:99 
 
This brings up the standard disk cleanup   interface but with more options than just standard disk clean up. You select what you want it to clean up and
click ok, which closes the disk cleanup window, then go to run again and then this time type the following to run disk cleanup with the settings you just
selected 
 
cleanmgr sagerun:99 
 
hope the above helps
 
Paul 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi List,



I recently told a friend of mine about audacity.

Do you know of any tutorials for audacity that could help a blind low vision user become familiar with audacity?



Cheers,



Monte

You didn't delete it. I'm saying that you replied to a message with another message on a completely different subject and it should have been a new thread.

In a case like this, you should start a new thread with a completely new message and subject line. Don't just delete the subject line of an existing thread. The message will still appear in the archives under the old thread.
I dohn't know what happens if people read messages by thread in their e-mail programs.

To answer your question, be on the file you have uploaded.
Open the context menu.
Find copy Droppbox link and press enter.
The link will be copied to the clkipboard and after a pause, you will here a notification that it has been copied.
Paste it into an e-mail message, I imagine that's how you are sending it.
Chanbge the 0 at the end of the link to 1.

Hey there, Chris, Brian Zolo here in Gahanna Ohio which is a suburb of
Columbus feel free to call me BZ, grin! I’ve just switched computers
recently and created a new dropbox account. I need to send a zip file to a
good friend of mine and it’s been a while since I’ve used dropbox so would
you mind refreshing my memory as to the procedure for sending someone a
dropbox link? Sure enjoy your posts and contributions to the list, have a
great day! BZ!
