language pack question

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
I was able to install the language pack for Canadian English, but my dictionary
language sometimes still shows up as US English even though I've changed it to
Canadian English so many times it's not even funny. If I remove the US English
language pack will this solve the problem, and how do I remove a language pack?
I went into options, but couldn't find anything and I couldn't get a context
menu either. I'm running the latest build of Windows 10 and Jaws. Thanks for any
help!!!

Re: Brave Browser Is Taking On Google!

One statement is very interesting in terms of the accessibility of the browser. By it self, it means nothing in terms of accessibility, but it raises the question of how these results will be displayed and if they will be accessible.
6. It's Fast : Brave Search connects to the browser and offers instant results as you type.

Is there also a results page that comes up or are these suggestions in a list a screen-reader can move through?

I don't have much opinion about this search engine. I do have questions. Both Duck Duck Go and Start Page say you aren't tracked. Smart Page uses Google results but says it doesn't track you. I don't know what Duck Duck Go uses. Since Google is generally agreed to have the best results, that's my impression, can this new browser really compete? Does it have the resources that Google has to produce an equivalent search engine in terms of results?

I very much like the fact that the browser won't tailor results. That just helps insulate people in their own selflimiting world. But does Start page do any such tailoring or Duck Duck Go? Is this an advantage of the proposed new browser or are they just saying this is one thing it does?

I like the Brave Browser and I use it. I like the reason it exists, it does more than just not track you and give good protection against others tracking you. I won't go into it here, but what makes it really different is how it handles advertising. But is this search engine really beneficial and necessary?

Brave Is Launching a Privacy-Focused Search Engine to Compete With Google

The Brave logo with some art assets related to its search engine.
Brave
secured your web activity, and now it wants to secure your search results. The underdog browser, which grew to over
26 million
users last year, is gearing up to launch
Brave Search,
a "
private
alternative to Google Search" without any trackers or "algorithmic bias." Brave Search will take on the big dogs, including
DuckDuckGo,
the most popular private search engine.
Of course, Brave isn't building its search engine from scratch-the company will instead base Brave Search on
Tailcat,
a privacy-focused search engine from the crew
at Cliqz
a now-bankrupt fork of Mozilla's European division. Brave aquired the Tailcat search engine in March 2021 and
suggests
that it's a suitable foundation for Brave Search thanks to its privacy-focused code.
Unsurprisingly, the Brave blog post announcing Brave Search includes a list of tenets. You can read the full manifesto on
Brave's blog,
or skim this quick summary:
list of 7 items
1. Privacy : Brave Search doesn't track users.
2. User-First : Brave Search focuses on users, not advertisers.
3. Ad-Free Option : Users can pay for ad-free search results.
4. Anonymized Crawling : Big tech companies spend billions to "crawl" websites and generate search results. Brave Search relies on anonymous community
contributions instead.
5. Anti-Bias : Brave Search doesn't use algorithms to create biased search results or censor websites.
6. It's Fast : Brave Search connects to the browser and offers instant results as you type.
7. Open Engine : Anyone can use Brave Search to develop their own search engine.
It's worth mentioning that Brave Search does use algorithms, but it provides filters (or "
Goggles
") to let you modify how the algorithm ranks content. These filters could provide additional transparency for Brave Search, or help early-adopters refine
their search results on the fly.

Re: Brave Browser Is Taking On Google!

Brave is more secure than Chrome, as is Firefox and Microsoft Edge. Chrome has an interest in not making as secure a browser. Collecting information on people is a very important way Google makes money. That isn't to say that Chrome is bad on security but it certainly isn't as good. And Chrome users can use add-ons that give very good protection. I suspect as good as Brave or Edge, but by itself, it isn't as good.

HI Heather,

Oh no I think Brave is more than just a smooth down version of Chrome. I am a real fan girl of Brave, as I think Brave is absolutely wonderful, and I like the security Brave provides, as well as accessibility for a screen reader such as myself. Although, I do know Brave is Chrome based, I still think for me, Brave is maybe just a little more secure than Chrome. Don’t get me wrong though, I do think Chrome is a good browser as well. All this is just my personal opinion, as this is what works for me.

Buy what, the search engine or the browser. Either way, you have no basis for the assumption. Is it possible, of course, its possible, but given the attitudes of the founders of the organization that produces the Brave browser, this is very unlikely.

Re: Shutting down Windows 10 machine with Jaws

Mike B.
 

Hi Tariq,
 
Try the following to put shutdown or restart shortcuts on your desktop:
 
From: John Gregory
Try the following to create a desktop shortcut to shutdown and restart:
 
1. Make sure nothing is selected then, press the applications key or shift + F10on the desktop to open the context menu;
2. Arrow down to 'New' and press the right arrow key to open the 'shortcut'
submenu and press Enter;
3. In the edit box, type (without the quotes)
'c:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 00';
4. Tab to the 'Next' button and press Enter;
5. Name the shortcut something like 'Shutdown Windows' and then tab to the
'OK' button and press Enter.
 
Now, if you press Enter on the newly created desktop icon 'Shutdown Windows'
the PC should shut down.
 
To do the same for a restart:
 
1. Right click on the desktop to open the context menu;
2. Arrow down to 'New' and press the right arrow key to open the 'shortcut'
submenu and press Enter;
3. In the edit box, type (without the quotes)
'c:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 00';
4. Tab to the 'Next' button and press Enter;
5. Name the shortcut something like 'Restart Windows' and then tab to the
'OK' button and press Enter.
 
Now, if you press Enter on the newly created desktop icon 'Restart Windows'
the PC should shut down and then restart.
 
If the above steps do not work, then I am not sure what is happening with
your machine as it really should shut down and restart when requested.
 
John.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Re: Acrobat Reader DC

Steve Matzura
 

Windows updates tend to change things. To change it back, do the following:


1. Find a PDF with File Explorer.

2. Open the Properties sheet for the PDF you found by pressing ALT+ENTER.

3. Tab to the "Change" button, or press its shortcut, ALT+C.

4. Use the Up and Down Arrow keys to find Adobe Acrobat Reader DC in the list of applications for opening Portable Document Format files.

5. Tab to and activate the OK button.

6. Tab to and activate the Apply button, or press its shortcut key, ALT+A. NOTE: If no change was made in Step 4, the Apply button will either be grayed, dimmed, or just plain not on the screen. Don't worry if you can't find it, and if you press ALT+A and it isn't there, nothing will happen.

7. Press ENTER to close the Properties sheet dialog.


All done.

Brave Is Launching a Privacy-Focused Search Engine to Compete With Google

ANDREW HEINZMAN

MAR 4, 2021, 11:27 AM EST | 1 min read

The Brave logo with some art assets related to its search engine.

Brave

secured your web activity, and now it wants to secure your search results. The underdog browser, which grew to over

26 million

users last year, is gearing up to launch

Brave Search,

a "

private

alternative to Google Search" without any trackers or "algorithmic bias." Brave Search will take on the big dogs, including

DuckDuckGo,

the most popular private search engine.

Of course, Brave isn't building its search engine from scratch-the company will instead base Brave Search on

Tailcat,

a privacy-focused search engine from the crew

at Cliqz

a now-bankrupt fork of Mozilla's European division. Brave aquired the Tailcat search engine in March 2021 and

suggests

that it's a suitable foundation for Brave Search thanks to its privacy-focused code.

Unsurprisingly, the Brave blog post announcing Brave Search includes a list of tenets. You can read the full manifesto on

Brave's blog,

or skim this quick summary:

list of 7 items

1. Privacy : Brave Search doesn't track users.

2. User-First : Brave Search focuses on users, not advertisers.

3. Ad-Free  Option : Users can pay for ad-free search results.

4. Anonymized Crawling : Big tech companies spend billions to "crawl" websites and generate search results. Brave Search relies on anonymous community

contributions instead.

5. Anti-Bias : Brave Search doesn't use algorithms to create biased search results or censor websites.

6. It's Fast : Brave Search connects to the browser and offers instant results as you type.

7. Open Engine : Anyone can use Brave Search to develop their own search engine.

It's worth mentioning that Brave Search does use algorithms, but it provides filters (or "

Goggles

") to let you modify how the algorithm ranks content. These filters could provide additional transparency for Brave Search, or help early-adopters refine

their search results on the fly.

Want to try Brave Search? Brave hasn't clarified when its search engine will go live, but you can sign up for the

waitlist

today for early access. You could also try

DuckDuckGo,

another privacy-oriented search engine.

I have always been able to make Acrobat Reader DC the default for
