goldwave, save markers and queue points with flac files

David Mehler
 

Hello,

I've got some large flac files that I'm wanting to use queue points to
break up. Can I save the queue points with this flac file or do I have
to make it a wav first?

Thanks.
Dave.


Speaking of transcribing and speech recognition

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

Many years ago I took the medical transcribing course that Hadley School for the Blind when it was available, but eventually decided it might be too stressful, especially since I used to wear just hearing aids and other listening devices. Now, speech recognition technology has come on the scene. So, is it possible to get a job in which I could edit the written results of what a doctor, or anyone else, says, using a Braille display?

Thanks,

Is it hard to communicate, even with hearing aids? Visit http://cochlearamericas.com


Huge Braille Display Problem With Narrator

George Zaynoun
 

I have a Focus Blu40 4th gen. When I use it with Narrator and choose its own driver it doesn't communicate with the pc but if I choose BRLTTY driver it works properly but renders communication by all other screen readers with it useless, I am connecting via usb; any help?

Re: reader mode in Chrome

Hope Williamson <isepic@...>
 

Well glad Just read works for you! I have it installed but haven’t had to use it yet. I run a strict system of adblockers, which include filters that block not only ads, but social media widgets. That being said, there are still some pages that reader view is nice for.


Re: a request Please?

Carolyn Arnold
 

Yes, thanks; I made a file for it.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Hi all.
I will paste, right here in this message, the same kind of text tutorial on Using the Microsoft Edge Browser.
It will be laid out just like the Chrome tutorial.
I take you, step by step, through how to set up Edge, and I take you through all settings and tell you how to customise Edge to your liking.
Tutorial for Using Microsoft Edge By David Moore
I am using the latest public build of Windows 10 Creators update.
If you are using anything different than that, you might get different results.
When you can press spacebar or enter, I will list them both.
If I only list enter, that means that you can only use enter.
If I only list Spacebar, that means that you can only press spacebar to toggle something, for example.
I have a list of all key commands for Edge at the end of this tutorial. Through the tutorial, I will point out many key commands as well, as I go.

Section Number One
Opening the Edge Browser:
Press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape, to open the start area. Next, type Edge and enter when Narrator announces it.
Press enter, and the Edge browser should open.

Section Number Two
Opening the Freedom Scientific Web Site:
I pressed CTRL+L (alt+D works as well) and entered:
www.freedomscientific.com <https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freedomscientific.com&;data=02%7C01%7C%7C580755a5fbb042b0e0d608d6404abfcf%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636767087119552614&sdata=ssOtbMWTKw3yHv5A4QC2VXaiSu9%2FE8zMCSSmcEY4IDM%3D&reserved=0>
That is the site for Freedom Scientific.
The web site came up very quickly.
I can use all navigation keys, like H for heading, C for Combo Box, E for edit area, , for example, just like other browsers, and they all work.
Section Three
Pressing alt+X to get a large Virticle Menu:
Now, I will now press ALT+X to open the settings and more menu! This is to the right of the address bar, but Alt+X opens this same menu. We have a lot
in this virticle menu.a large virticle menu of choices. When I down arrow, I here the following:
New Window (CTRL+N), New InPrivate Window (CTRL+SHIFT+P), Zoom out, Zoom in, Cast media to device, Find on page, Print, Pin this page to Start, F12 Developer
Tools, Open with Internet Explorer, Send feedback, Extensions, What's new and Tips, and finally, Settings. Extensions and Settings are the main two choices
we are interested in with this menu. Key commands will do the rest.
Next, I will talk about settings.
Section Four:
Navigating settings and Advance settings:
Press alt+X again, and up arrow once to settings, because that is the last choice.
Press enter on settings.
You will hear:
Choose a Theme light.
Don't worry about that!
Tab once, and you will hear:
Open Microsoft Edge with a page or set of pages combo box.
This is how you choose how you want Microsoft Edge to open.
I have mine set to a specific page or pages.
Now, Tab again, and you have an edit field where you can type in your pages that you want opened When Microsoft Edge is launched.
I just entered:
www.google.com <https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&;data=02%7C01%7C%7C580755a5fbb042b0e0d608d6404abfcf%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636767087119552614&sdata=mbX0VQN2SfjTdieBYBI772cxJMWZ5U6iRAIwlUh54wk%3D&reserved=0>
Therefore, when I start Edge, the Google home page opens for me.
Tabbing again:
I hear delete button, where you can press spacebar or enter to delete your page or pages.
Tabbing again, I hear Add Button, where you can press spacebar or enter and add another page that you want to open when Edge is started.
Tabbing again, I hear:
Open new tabs with combo box.
I have this set to a blank page.
Tab again, and you will hear:
Import from another browser button.
You can press spacebar or enter here to import all favorites and settings from other browsers you use, like IE 11 or Chrome, or Firefox.
Tab again, and you will hear:
Show the favorites bar toggle.
I have this unchecked, because I do not want everyone to see my favorites on a bar right on the Edge Window. Press spacebar to check or uncheck..
Tab again, and you hear:
Choose what to clear.
If you press spacebar on this, you can tab and check or uncheck what is cleared when you delete your history. You can also choose whether this should be
cleared every time you close the Edge browser.
Tab, and you will either hear Account Settings or your MSA account link, depending on your account setting.
Tabbing again, I hear:
Sync your favorites and reading list unchecked.
You definitely want to check this by pressing spacebar, so all of your Edge data will be synced between all of your devices. If you do not want this,
then uncheck it with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Sync device settings link.
Tab again, and you hear:
View Advanced settings button.
This is important, and I will cover that in a bit.
Tab again, and you hear:
Terms of use link.
Tab again, and you hear:
Privacy statement link.
Tab again, and you hear:
Pin this pane button.
Tab again, and you hear:
Change my default button.
We are back to the beginning of settings. Now, let us go through the advanced settings.
Next, press Alt+X, and up arrow once to settings, and press enter. Now, Shift tab to Advanced settings, since that was almost at the end of what we tabbed
through. Go ahead and enter on the advanced settings. There is a lot you can customise here. Let’s tab through this menu.
Press enter on Advanced Settings, and you hear:
Show the home button toggle.
I have this pressed, by using spacebar, because I want my home page to show in the Edge Window!
Tab again, and you hear:
A specific page collapsed. This is what I want.
Tab again, and there is an edit field to put the URL of what you want your home page to be.
I want my home page to be the same page is my start page, so I just enter:
www.google.com <https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&;data=02%7C01%7C%7C580755a5fbb042b0e0d608d6404abfcf%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636767087119552614&sdata=mbX0VQN2SfjTdieBYBI772cxJMWZ5U6iRAIwlUh54wk%3D&reserved=0>
to be my home page.
Now:
www.google.com <https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&;data=02%7C01%7C%7C580755a5fbb042b0e0d608d6404abfcf%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636767087119552614&sdata=mbX0VQN2SfjTdieBYBI772cxJMWZ5U6iRAIwlUh54wk%3D&reserved=0>
is my start page and my home page.
To go back to your home page from anywhere, just press:
Alt+Home
Tab again, and you hear:
Save Button.
Press spacebar or enter on this to save your home page.
You now hear:
block pop-ups toggle.
I have mine unchecked, by using the spacebar, because I want pages to come up, that are considered pop-ups.
However, to keep safe, you should probably have that checked, so Edge will indeed block pop-ups.
This is up to you.
Tab again, and you hear:
Use Adobe Flash Player.
I have this checked, with the spacebar, because a lot of web sites still need Adobe flash to play videos and the like.
Tab again, and you hear:
Open sites in apps.
I have this checked with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Choose which sites open in apps button.
I have this checked. Next, Choose which sites open in apps. This will launch the Settings app where you can customize whether to open certain web site
in an app or in the browser.
Tab again, and you hear:
Change button.
I hear change button, you can use this to change where to save downloaded files to.
Tab again, and you hear:
Ask me what to do with each download toggle.
I have that checked, with spacebar, because when I download something, I want it to ask me if I want to save or open and so on.
Tab again, and you hear:
Open Proxy settings button.
I left this alone.
Tab again, and you hear:
Manage button.
I left this alone.
Tab again, and you hear:
Learn more link.
Tab again, and you hear:
Offer to save passwords toggle.
I checked this, with spacebar, so I can have a password saved if I want.
Tab again, and you hear:
Manage Passwords button.
I left this alone.
Tab again, and you hear:
Save form entries toggle.
I have this checked with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Send do not track requests toggle.
I have this unchecked with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge.
I have mine turnned on with spacebar. If you want this off, just press spacebar until you hear unchecked or off. sometimes, it will say on or off, or,
it will say checked or unchecked. You will hear both ways spoken, but they are the same.
Tab again, and you hear:
Change Search Engine button:
This is important, because I pressed space bar or enter on that, and it was a combo box that was set on Bing. Keep that if you want, but I changed mine
to Google.
I like Google to do my searches rather than Bing.
When you are done with this, Tab and hear will hear:
Back button.
Press space on that, to go back to the advanced settings that we are in.
The back button shows up a lot in Edge, so you can just go back to where you were.
Tab again, and you hear:
Show search and site suggestions as I type toggle.
I used spacebar to uncheck that, because I do not like suggestions to populate as I type in the address bar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Clear Bing search history link.
I did nothing with that.
Tab again, and you hear:
Optimize Taskbar web search results for screen readers.
Mine is check; to uncheck, just use spacebar.

I have this check. To uncheck, just use spacebar, but you want this checked.
Tab again, and you hear:
Help protect me from malicious sites and downloads with Windows Defender Smartscreen toggle.
I kept this checked.
Tab again, and you hear:
Pin this Pane button.
Tab again, and you hear:
Back button.
Guess what this is for.
Entering on this takes you back to just plain old settings.
Remember, we entered on Advanced settings within settings.
Pressing spacebar or enter on this back button, takes you back to settings where we chose our start page and all of that.
Therefore, we are all done with Settings.
Look at what you know already, just by pressing Alt+X, up arrow once to settings, and press enter, tab through settings, enter on advanced settings, tab
through those settings, and press enter on the back button to get you back to settings, and just press escape twice to get out of settings, and you are
back on the Freedom Scientific web site we started out with.
Important:
You must press escape twice to get out of settings and back on to the Freedom Scientific web site.

Section Five
Getting to, and navigating the Hub.
Now, I will show you how to get to the Hub. The Hub is located just after the address bar area. It has 5 tabs: Favorites, Reading list, Books, History
and Downloads. However, instead of often coming here, we will activate three of these tabs with key commands right from your web site.
Now, this is where your starting place will be a lot in Edge:
Press alt+D or CTRL+L to get to the address bar or whatever it is called in Edge LOL!
Important, we will get to everything else by tabbing or shift tabbing from the address bar. However, you won't need to do this often, because we can activate
this stuff by key commands right from the Web site. The address bar is your starting place, so you can tab to get to everything else that we will talk
about in Edge. If you get on that address bar, you are set to get to everything else that is on top of the Edge Window.
So now, from the Freedom Scientific web site:
Press Alt+D or CTRL+L
You should hear the URL of the Freedom Scientific web site.
You are on the address bar, our starting place.
Tab once, and you hear:
Add to favorites or reading list button.
If you press enter here, you will save the Freedom Scientific web site that we are on in your favorites. However, you can do this by just pressing CTRL+D
from the web site. Just press enter, and tab to save and press enter. This is how you will save a web site in your favorites.
Tab again, and you hear:
Hub ( Favorites, Reading List, Books, History, and Downloads toggle button not pressed.
Now, just tab a few times to get back to the web site. That is all you need to do from up here. You can also press F6 to get from this upper area back
to the web site.
To get back to the Hub, press Ctrl + I to open the first tab in the Hub, the Favorites tab.
You will hear Narrator announce Hub, Favorites window, tab control, Favorite tab selected 1 of 5.
Here we are in our favorites. I can tab twice to the list of favorites then arrow up and down through my favorites.
If I Shift+Tab twice, I am back on the five tabs. I can navigate these tabs, by just pressing the right and left arrow keys. Press right arrow, and you
will hear the other four tabs, Reading list, Books, History, and Downloads.
When you right arrow to the Books tab, Tab from here, and I hear Get Books button, Sign in button, and Shop for Books button. This is exciting.
The fourth tab is the History tab, you can press Ctrl + H to get to it directly.
I can delete my history, and look at my history here.
The 5th and last tab, is my Downloads tab. Open it by pressing Ctrl + J. Here is where you come to view your downloads, and check on the status of a
download in progress.
So, that is it for the HUB button.
I pressed Esc to get out of Hub. The only two tabs that there are not key commands to go to them are the Books and Reading list, which you will not use
that much anyway.
I just want you to see that you can press right and left arrow keys on the tabs, but you can get to those tabs with one of the three key commands:
CTRL+I for the Favorites tab, CTRL+H, for the History Tab, and CTRL+J for the downloads tab.
We are done with using the Hub!

Section Six:

Are you saying that when you run Chrome it repeatedly downloads the file?  You may be able to stop this by clearing the downloads list.  Use the command control j and wait a moment for the downloads page to load.  Chrome uses web page-like interfaces for such interfaces rather than the lists you see in Firefox and Internet Explorer.  Turn the virtual PC cursor off in JAWS, JAWS key z, or turn browse mode off in NVDA, NVdA key space bar.  Tab until you get to a clear list button.  Press the space bar.  That should clear the list.  I hope it does: I tried it once and I'm not sure it did.  But see if that solves the problem.

 

After you have done these things, turn on the virtual PC cursor again or browse mode by using the same commands you used to turn them off, JAWS key z or NVDA key space bar and continue doing whatever you want to do.  This is a web page-like interface and you can do anything you usually do to move to another page or close the browser or anything else.

Wondered if any one has had issues with chrome where continues to download a file over and over again even after the file or program has been downloaded successfully?

This continues to happen after downloaded the latest version of CCleaner and have uninstalled and reinstalled chrome thinning would fix the problem or issue and hasn’t.

Thanks.

After you press the ask where to safe files, is the problem that when you close the browser and look at the button again when you open the browser and look at the setting again, it isn't indicated as being pressed?  Or is the problem that the location you want to save files to isn't remembered.  There is a change button before the ask where to save files button.  Shift tab once from the ask button and press the space bar on the change button.  A dialog opens where you designate where files should be saved.

 

If that isn't the problem, then is it that the button goes back to not saying pressed when you look at it after reopening Chrome?

I have this checked. Next, Choose which sites open in apps.  This will launch the Settings app where you can customize whether to open certain web site
in an app or in the browser.
Tab again, and you hear:
Change button.
I hear change button, you can use this to change where to save downloaded files to.
Tab again, and you hear:
Ask me what to do with each download toggle.
I have that checked, with spacebar, because when I download something, I want it to ask me if I want to save or open and so on.
Tab again, and you hear:
Open Proxy settings button.
I left this alone.
Tab again, and you hear:
Manage button.
I left this alone.
Tab again, and you hear:
Learn more link.
Tab again, and you hear:
Offer to save passwords toggle.
I checked this, with spacebar, so I can have a password saved if I want.
Tab again, and you hear:
Manage Passwords button.
I left this alone.
Tab again, and you hear:
Save form entries toggle.
I have this checked with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Send do not track requests toggle.
I have this unchecked with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge.
I have mine turnned on with spacebar. If you want this off, just press spacebar until you hear unchecked or off. sometimes, it will say on or off, or,
it will say checked or unchecked. You will hear both ways spoken, but they are the same.
Tab again, and you hear:
Change Search Engine button:
This is important, because I pressed space bar or enter on that, and it was a combo box that was set on Bing. Keep that if you want, but I changed mine
to Google.
I like Google to do my searches rather than Bing.
When you are done with this, Tab and hear will hear:
Back button.
Press space on that, to go back to the advanced settings that we are in.
The back button shows up a lot in Edge, so you can just go back to where you were.
Tab again, and you hear:
Show search and site suggestions as I type toggle.
I used spacebar to uncheck that, because I do not like suggestions to populate as I type in the address bar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Clear Bing search history link.
I did nothing with that.
Tab again, and you hear:
Optimize Taskbar web search results for screen readers.
Mine is check; to uncheck, just use spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Don't block cookies combo box collapsed.
I left that alone.
Tab again, and you hear:
Let sites save protected media licenses on my device.
This is checked.
Tab again, and you hear:
Use page prodiction to speed up websites.
I have this check. To uncheck, just use spacebar, but you want this checked.
Tab again, and you hear:
Help protect me from malicious sites and downloads with Windows Defender Smartscreen toggle.
I kept this checked.
Tab again, and you hear:
Pin this Pane button.
Tab again, and you hear:
Back button.
Guess what this is for.
Entering on this takes you back to just plain old settings.
Remember, we entered on Advanced settings within settings.
Pressing spacebar or enter on this back button, takes you back to settings where we chose our start page and all of that.
Therefore, we are all done with Settings.
Look at what you know already, just by pressing Alt+X, up arrow once to settings, and press enter, tab through settings, enter on advanced settings, tab
through those settings, and press enter on the back button to get you back to settings, and just press escape twice to get out of settings, and you are
back on the Freedom Scientific web site we started out with.
Important:
You must press escape twice to get out of settings and back on to the Freedom Scientific web site.
 
Section Five
Getting to, and navigating the Hub.
Now, I will show you how to get to the Hub.  The Hub is located just after the address bar area.  It has 5 tabs: Favorites, Reading list, Books, History
and Downloads. However, instead of often coming here, we will activate three of these tabs with key commands right from your web site.
Now, this is where your starting place will be a lot in Edge:
Press alt+D or CTRL+L to get to the address bar or whatever it is called in Edge LOL!
Important, we will get to everything else by tabbing or shift tabbing from the address bar. However, you won't need to do this often, because we can activate
this stuff by key commands right from the Web site. The address bar is your starting place, so you can tab to get to everything else that we will talk
about in Edge. If you get on that address bar, you are set to get to everything else that is on top of the Edge Window.
So now, from the Freedom Scientific web site:
Press Alt+D or CTRL+L
You should hear the URL of the Freedom Scientific web site.
You are on the address bar, our starting place.
Tab once, and you hear:
Add to favorites or reading list button.
If you press enter here, you will save the Freedom Scientific web site that we are on in your favorites. However, you can do this by just pressing CTRL+D
from the web site. Just press enter, and tab to save and press enter. This is how you will save a web site in your favorites.
Tab again, and you hear:
Hub ( Favorites, Reading List, Books, History, and Downloads toggle button not pressed.
Now, just tab a few times to get back to the web site. That is all you need to do from up here. You can also press F6 to get from this upper area back
to the web site.
To get back to the Hub, press Ctrl + I to open the first tab in the Hub, the Favorites tab.
You will hear Narrator announce Hub, Favorites window, tab control, Favorite tab selected 1 of 5.
Here we are in our favorites.  I can tab twice to the list of favorites then arrow up and down through my favorites.
If I Shift+Tab twice, I am back on the five tabs. I can navigate these tabs, by just pressing the right and left arrow keys. Press right arrow, and you
will hear the other four tabs, Reading list, Books, History, and Downloads.
When you right arrow to the Books tab, Tab from here, and I hear Get Books button, Sign in button, and Shop for Books button. This is exciting.
The fourth tab is the History tab, you can press Ctrl + H to get to it directly.
I can delete my history, and look at my history here.
The 5th and last tab, is my Downloads tab.  Open it by pressing Ctrl + J.  Here is where you come to view your downloads, and check on the status of a
download in progress.
So, that is it for the HUB button.
I pressed Esc to get out of Hub. The only two tabs that there are not key commands to go to them are the Books and Reading list, which you will not use
that much anyway.
I just want you to see that you can press right and left arrow keys on the tabs, but you can get to those tabs with one of the three key commands:
CTRL+I for the Favorites tab, CTRL+H, for the History Tab, and CTRL+J for the downloads tab.
We are done with using the Hub!

Hi Jim,
 
Here you go:
From: David Moore
Hi all.
I will paste, right here in this message, the same kind of text tutorial on Using the Microsoft Edge Browser.
It will be laid out just like the Chrome tutorial.
I take you, step by step, through how to set up Edge, and I take you through all settings and tell you how to customise Edge to your liking.
Tutorial for Using Microsoft Edge By David Moore
I am using the latest public build of Windows 10 Creators update.
If you are using anything different than that, you might get different results.
When you can press spacebar or enter, I will list them both.
If I only list enter, that means that you can only use enter.
If I only list Spacebar, that means that you can only press spacebar to toggle something, for example.
I have a list of all key commands for Edge at the end of this tutorial. Through the tutorial, I will point out many key commands as well, as I go.
 
Section Number One
Opening the Edge Browser:
Press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape, to open the start area. Next, type Edge and enter when Narrator announces it.
Press enter, and the Edge browser should open.
 
Section Number Two
Opening the Freedom Scientific Web Site:
I pressed CTRL+L (alt+D works as well) and entered:
www.freedomscientific.com
That is the site for Freedom Scientific.
The web site came up very quickly.
I can use all navigation keys, like H for heading, C for Combo Box, E for edit area, , for example, just like other browsers, and they all work.
Section Three
Pressing alt+X to get a large Virticle Menu:
Now, I will now press ALT+X to open the settings and more menu! This is to the right of the address bar, but Alt+X opens this same menu. We have a lot
in this virticle menu.a large virticle menu of choices. When I down arrow, I here the following:
New Window (CTRL+N), New InPrivate Window (CTRL+SHIFT+P), Zoom out, Zoom in, Cast media to device, Find on page, Print, Pin this page to Start, F12 Developer
Tools, Open with Internet Explorer, Send feedback, Extensions, What's new and Tips, and finally, Settings. Extensions and Settings are the main two choices
we are interested in with this menu. Key commands will do the rest.
Next, I will talk about settings.
Section Four:
Navigating settings and Advance settings:
Press alt+X again, and up arrow once to settings, because that is the last choice.
Press enter on settings.
You will hear:
Choose a Theme light.
Don't worry about that!
Tab once, and you will hear:
Open Microsoft Edge with a page or set of pages combo box.
This is how you choose how you want Microsoft Edge to open.
I have mine set to a specific page or pages.
Now, Tab again, and you have an edit field where you can type in your pages that you want opened When Microsoft Edge is launched.
I just entered:
www.google.com
Therefore, when I start Edge, the Google home page opens for me.
Tabbing again:
I hear delete button, where you can press spacebar or enter to delete your page or pages.
Tabbing again, I hear Add Button, where you can press spacebar or enter and add another page that you want to open when Edge is started.
Tabbing again, I hear:
Open new tabs with combo box.
I have this set to a blank page.
Tab again, and you will hear:
Import from another browser button.
You can press spacebar or enter here to import all favorites and settings from other browsers you use, like IE 11 or Chrome, or Firefox.
Tab again, and you will hear:
Show the favorites bar toggle.
I have this unchecked, because I do not want everyone to see my favorites on a bar right on the Edge Window. Press spacebar to check or uncheck..
Tab again, and you hear:
Choose what to clear.
If you press spacebar on this, you can tab and check or uncheck what is cleared when you delete your history. You can also choose whether this should be
cleared every time you close the Edge browser.
Tab, and you will either hear Account Settings or your MSA account link, depending on your account setting.
Tabbing again, I hear:
Sync your favorites and reading list unchecked.
 You definitely want to check this by pressing spacebar, so all of your Edge data will be synced between all of your devices. If you do not want this,
then uncheck it with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Sync device settings link.
Tab again, and you hear:
View Advanced settings button.
This is important, and I will cover that in a bit.
Tab again, and you hear:
Terms of use link.
Tab again, and you hear:
Privacy statement link.
Tab again, and you hear:
Pin this pane button.
Tab again, and you hear:
Change my default button.
We are back to the beginning of settings. Now, let us go through the advanced settings.
Next, press Alt+X, and up arrow once to settings, and press enter. Now, Shift tab to Advanced settings, since that was almost at the end of what we tabbed
through. Go ahead and enter on the advanced settings. There is a lot you can customise here.  Let’s tab through this menu.
Press enter on Advanced Settings, and you hear:
Show the home button toggle.
I have this pressed, by using spacebar, because I want my home page to show in the Edge Window!
Tab again, and you hear:
A specific page collapsed. This is what I want.
Tab again, and there is an edit field to put the URL of what you want your home page to be.
I want my home page to be the same page is my start page, so I just enter:
www.google.com
to be my home page.
Now:
www.google.com
is my start page and my home page.
To go back to your home page from anywhere, just press:
Alt+Home
Tab again, and you hear:
Save Button.
Press spacebar or enter on this to save your home page.
You now hear:
block pop-ups toggle.
I have mine unchecked, by using the spacebar, because I want pages to come up, that are considered pop-ups.
However, to keep safe, you should probably have that checked, so Edge will indeed block pop-ups.
This is up to you.
Tab again, and you hear:
Use Adobe Flash Player.
I have this checked, with the spacebar, because a lot of web sites still need Adobe flash to play videos and the like.
Tab again, and you hear:
Open sites in apps.
I have this checked with spacebar.
Tab again, and you hear:
Choose which sites open in apps button.
I have this checked. Next, Choose which sites open in apps.  This will launch the Settings app where you can customize whether to open certain web site
in an app or in the browser.
Tab again, and you hear:
Change button.
I hear change button, you can use this to change where to save downloaded files to.
Tab again, and you hear:
Ask me what to do with each download toggle.
I have that checked, with spacebar, because when I download something, I want it to ask me if I want to save or open and so on.

I left this alone.
Tab again, and you hear:

Tab again, and you hear:

Tab again, and you hear:

Tab again, and you hear:
Save form entries toggle.
I have this checked with spacebar.

I have mine turnned on with spacebar. If you want this off, just press spacebar until you hear unchecked or off. sometimes, it will say on or off, or,

Re: Court Reporting; National Telecommuting Institute

In 1973, I met a totally blind guy, who had been a
stenographer in the Water Gate hearings. This was at a
meeting of blind typists and stenographic workers in
Houston, which was where I found out about the Optacon and
also the Stereotoner.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Institute

Dear Shelly & List:

Not sure how many years ago you looked into court reporting.
Friend of mine graduated from Stenotype Academy, New York
City several years ago.

She used her laptop, running a program called Premier Power
at first, then Case Catalyst, both from Stenograph Corp.,
Mt. Prospect, IL.

The laptop connected to her steno machine. She input in
steno, if the judge asks for a transcript, she pushed a key
on the laptop, went to lunch, returning to the courtroom
with a nicely transcribed transcript ready to print. Press
the print button, the high-speed laser printer started
whirring away, printing the last page a few minutes later,
she handed the stack of transcript to the Judge.

She is also totally blind! Court reporters used to read back
testimony from the paper log tape produced by their steno
keyboard, however, since court reporting went computer, can
read back their notes in steno from their laptop or if they
are sighted, the keyboard log tape.

If you have no repetitive stress syndrome in your hands &
wrists, Stenographic Court Reporting can pay handsomely,
although you own your steno keyboard, laptop, Braille
Display, all related cables and your laser printer. If you
print in a courthouse, you would likely print on one of
their printers, paying the court for the use of their
printer.

One print page of transcript is 25 x 64-character lines. One
other blind court reporter told me court reporters utterly
detest typing, especially proofreading/spelling correction.

The stenotype programs are not cheap, however are very
comprehensive in their offerings.

One time, my friend found her Braille display, laptop &
steno keyboard would just would not work. Stenograph Tech
Support told her they gave up trying to make the stuff work.
She asked me what to do?

I three-wayed our phone call to Stenograph which was closed.
Dialed by name, found the extension of the President.

Friend left him a short, to the point, voicemail with her
name & phone number.

Next morning, same man in tech support who had given up on
making her stuff work, telephoned at 08:30 Eastern Time to
say they would pay to ship her laptop, Braille display,
steno keyboard with all documentation, Fed Ex Overnight due
to arrive by 10:30 AM the next morning in Mt. Prospect, IL.
Using this fast service is almost unheard of in the US.

They needed about a month to do it, however, were able to
modify Premier Power to work with her equipment. The man in
Tech Support had obviously received a call from the
President saying we do not give up on clients with special
needs.

On Graduation Day from Stenotype in NYC, she asks me what to
do.

I said in addition to her thank you voice mail to the
President. Of Stenograph she left when they got everything
working, to write him a personal thank you letter,,
including her graduation photos. She asked if she should
write the letter in steno. I said yes. If the President is
not a court reporter, he will have no difficulty finding one
to transcribe her letter. All their sales reps are qualified
steno court reporters!!

She was featured in an article in Stenograph's monthly
newsletter to clients, prospects etc.

However, she did not heed my advice to provide the story
with photos, to The Forward, a NYC Daily newspaper published
in Yiddish & English! The friend is Jewish. I told her The
Forward has many moms and grandmothers who have sons &
daughters who are lawyers, as well as County, State and
Federal Judges who would just love to give a nice, 4 ft.
10-inch-tall Jewish woman a job in their courtroom! At least
if they heed their mom or grandmother's advice!

Told her that some of these moms/grandmothers probably have
adult kids who have been Elevated to the Bench of the U. S.
Supreme Court, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC. They have
connections!
These moms/grandmothers have more connections than Bell
Telephone!
National Telecommuting Institute claimed to be the
Almighty's Personal Gift to the handicapped on its web site
& literature.

However, when you looked at the jobs they had available to
the visually impaired, they only offered IRS work at home
tax forms call takers to people who used a screen enlarger
at no more than 2X magnification. This is despite the IRS
having many totally blind forms request agents successfully
employed directly by them! Telecommuting Institute claimed
their limit was due to the speed the agents had to type at.

The other job was Medical Transcription. There can be good
money in this. However, as a friend told me, people working
from home were overworked to death by the large, US
employers they were employed by.
Firms would demand weekend rotations and announce mandatory
OT by e-mail to staff. While some US states may permit
employers to require OT or have the employees dismissed,
here in Ontario, they may not require an employee to work
more than 48 hours per week or whatever shift they have
agreed to work if different. We still have labor laws with
teeth, as well as statutes and trials division judges to
adjudicate them.

She said the firm offered OK medical, dental & prescription
coverage but not stellar. They said people leaving the firm
could use their COBRAA health benefits for ongoing care.
Friend asked what this was, firm advised it was only for
employees in the US.

Was like the firm thought all its employees were in USA,
forgot they had a dozen or so in Ontario.

The transcription firms guarantee client hospitals 24-hour
delivery on dictation, otherwise firm pays substantial late
fees for each delayed item. This is why they overwork the
staff. They do not wish to pay late fees.

She found the firms, she worked for a few, habitually
shipped work computers UPS which had money owing for customs
upon receipt by her. Firms would cut her a reimbursement
cheque sending it by UPS, however sometimes she had to
scramble to pay the money to UPSS first.

In short, she found working from home more stressful than
working in an office. She described the working conditions
as an electronic sweatshop. Firm had her typing speed
monitored by her supervisor, receiving a phone call if she
stopped typing for more than a few seconds. The doctors all
had accents, sometimes Southern, sometimes from India or
Pakistani china. The worst were doctors who dictated while
chewing gum.
In summary,, National Telecommuting Institute promised much,
however, when you read the fine print, offered little to
persons with serious disabilities.

The only handicapped persons they placed were fairly easy to
place, no quadrapleagic, deaf-blind, multi-handicapped
persons. The rates they charged employers for worker
training were on the ridiculous side of outrageous.
/Employers paid them as all training establishments charged
the same. Funny how that happens.

Re: Jaws and Edge..?

Gene
 

Most sighted people don't use Edge.  It makes me suspicious that there is no advantage to using Edge except that there may be times when it might be useful if it does something on a site or works better with a site than other browsers.  It may be that the lack of sighted interest is due to visual inferiority of the program in terms of visual features and interface.  But maybe it combines that with no performance advantage for sighted users. 
 
Is there really any difference for blind users in performance or anything else that merits giving Edge significant attention?

Re: Court Reporting; National Telecommuting Institute

Thank you so much for your nice long description of things.  At least I know now that I will not pursue any of these avenues.  What a horrible experience your friend had with court reporting and even the National Telecommuting Institute.  There is no way I would put myself through that.  Sounds like it's not what it seems.  I guess we can finally move on from this subject.

Dear Shelly & List:

 

Not sure how many years ago you looked into court reporting. Friend of mine graduated from Stenotype Academy, New York City several years ago.

 

She used her laptop, running a program called Premier Power at first, then Case Catalyst, both from Stenograph Corp., Mt. Prospect, IL.

 

The laptop connected to her steno machine. She input in steno, if the judge asks for a transcript, she pushed a key on the laptop, went to lunch, returning to the courtroom with a nicely transcribed transcript ready to print. Press the print button, the high-speed laser printer started whirring away, printing the last page a few minutes later, she handed the stack of transcript to the Judge.

 

She is also totally blind! Court reporters used to read back testimony from the paper log tape produced by their steno keyboard, however, since court reporting went computer, can read back their notes in steno from their laptop or if they are sighted, the keyboard log tape.

 

If you have no repetitive stress syndrome in your hands & wrists, Stenographic Court Reporting can pay handsomely, although you own your steno keyboard, laptop, Braille Display, all related cables and your laser printer. If you print in a courthouse, you would likely print on one of their printers, paying the court for the use of their printer.

 

One print page of transcript is 25 x 64-character lines. One other blind court reporter told me court reporters utterly detest typing, especially proofreading/spelling correction.

 

The stenotype programs are not cheap, however are very comprehensive in their offerings.

 

One time, my friend found her Braille display, laptop & steno keyboard would just would not work. Stenograph Tech Support told her they gave up trying to make the stuff work. She asked me what to do?

 

I three-wayed our phone call to Stenograph which was closed. Dialed by name, found the extension of the President.

 

Friend left him a short, to the point, voicemail with her name & phone number.

 

Next morning, same man in tech support who had given up on making her stuff work, telephoned at 08:30 Eastern Time to say they would pay to ship her laptop, Braille display, steno keyboard with all documentation, Fed Ex Overnight due to arrive by 10:30 AM the next morning in Mt. Prospect, IL. Using this fast service is almost unheard of in the US.

 

They needed about a month to do it, however, were able to modify Premier Power to work with her equipment. The man in Tech Support had obviously received a call from the President saying we do not give up on clients with special needs.

 

On Graduation Day from Stenotype in NYC, she asks me what to do.

 

I said in addition to her thank you voice mail to the President. Of Stenograph she left when they got everything working, to write him a personal thank you letter,, including her graduation photos. She asked if she should write the letter in steno. I said yes. If the President is not a court reporter, he will have no difficulty finding one to transcribe her letter. All their sales reps are qualified steno court reporters!!

Re: chrome not saving changes

Gene
 

Are you saying that when you run Chrome it repeatedly downloads the file?  You may be able to stop this by clearing the downloads list.  Use the command control j and wait a moment for the downloads page to load.  Chrome uses web page-like interfaces for such interfaces rather than the lists you see in Firefox and Internet Explorer.  Turn the virtual PC cursor off in JAWS, JAWS key z, or turn browse mode off in NVDA, NVdA key space bar.  Tab until you get to a clear list button.  Press the space bar.  That should clear the list.  I hope it does: I tried it once and I'm not sure it did.  But see if that solves the problem.
 
After you have done these things, turn on the virtual PC cursor again or browse mode by using the same commands you used to turn them off, JAWS key z or NVDA key space bar and continue doing whatever you want to do.  This is a web page-like interface and you can do anything you usually do to move to another page or close the browser or anything else.

Dennis,

There is, technically, a reader mode built into Chrome but using it is a bit clunky.

In order to activate it you have to go into the properties dialog for the Chrome shortcut and add a command line argument at the end of the first edit field.

If Google Chrome is on your desktop, point to it and press alt-enter to open the properties dialog. At the end of the first edit field containing the path where Chrome is located add

--enable-dom-distiller

and press enter.

As an example, my edit field reads

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --enable-dom-distiller

Don't change the path to match mine in case your copy of Chrome is located in a different folder. The above is just an example of how the edit field should read.

In order to get to the Reader view, press alt-F, from within Chrome, for the Chrome menu.

Arrow down and you'll find a Distill Page option, which opens the page in Chrome's reader view.

The above method is, in my opinion, unintuitive and inefficient.

What I've resorted to is the Mercury Reader Chrome extension from the Chrome store. Once you've installed this extension and, presumably, other ones which are similar, you can go into the extension's settings and set up a hotkey to invoke the reader extension. For Mercury, I've set up ctrl-R to render the page in the Mercury reader view.

Hope that helps.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --enable-dom-distiller

Don't change the path to match mine in case your copy of Chrome is located in a different folder. The above is just an example of how the edit field should read.

In order to get to the Reader view, press alt-F, from within Chrome, for the Chrome menu.

Arrow down and you'll find a Distill Page option, which opens the page in Chrome's reader view.

The above method is, in my opinion, unintuitive and inefficient.

What I've resorted to is the Mercury Reader Chrome extension from the Chrome store. Once you've installed this extension and, presumably, other ones which are similar, you can go into the extension's settings and set up a hotkey to invoke the reader extension. For Mercury, I've set up ctrl-R to render the page in the Mercury reader view.

Hope that helps.

Hi, is there a reader mode in chrome?  If not what are some good extensions that will do the job?
