Re: how to stop Jaws from saying "two spaces"

I haven't used JAWS for a long time but there is a feature called text analyzer. It may be on. While I doubt it is the cause of the problem, you can check if it is on in the following way:

The command to turn Text Analyzer on is JAWS key space, that is hold the JAWS key and type space. Then type the letter a. To turn it off, use the same command again.

Every time it comes to the end of a phrase, sentence etc. it says "two

I have tried changing some things in verbosity and speech settings, but it

JAWS key and while holding it space. Then type s. The same command turns speech back on.

Hi there! I use TW blue. It works excellent as the portable version. You can install TW blue on your computer, but the portable version works much better. It has two options. You can have the window with the menu bar, or you can use it hidden using all key commands. I have Windows 10 2004, and it still works excellent in every way. David Moore

I solved the captcha and can now download the file. I must be approved on the basis of my IP address because as an experiment, I went to the page with another browser and I wasn't challenged.

I only kept one copy of your message and the discussion may have occurred on
another list. One person said he couldn't find a download link. that could
be. I don't use Send Space much but at times, I am asked to solve a captcha
and I can use the site without challenge for awhile. But I use it so seldom
that I don't know how long that time is.

I would suggest using something like we transfer. I'll find the link if you
are interested. It doesn't hagve the danger of hacked advertising that has
been present on Send Space over the years. If you are using it for free,
you might get hacked advertising and have malware downloaded onto your
computer unless you use the context menu and use save as or save link as,
whatever your browser calls it to download without advertising. And We
Transfer doesn't lower download speed if yu use it for free.

Software can receive updates all the time without receiving any bug
fixes whatsoever, in fact, sometimes updates introduce new issues.


Re: Twitter Clients

I don’t have any of these issues and I never restart tw-blue unless my pc is restarting.

Anyway, I think it will  receive an update sometime soon due to these recent changes in twitter  api.

Well minus some issues it works fairly well. If you don't restart it

after a while, it will start opening links in IE, instead of your

default browser. Also, it will fail to update buffers after a few hours.

Perhaps something is set in a nonstandard way. Or you may use something that causes such a message. For example, do you have cookies set not to be allowed or do you use an ad blocker? You shouldn't receive a message about settings needing to be changed if you are using standard settings.

I don't know what message you got but it reflects some problems with your settings or with whatever browser you are using. I received no such message when I went to the site with the Brave browser.

It is important not to generalize one person's experience to the experiences people will have in general. In other words, don't not visit the site if you were going to.

Hi all.

I'm looking for a good talking watch. I'm not sure what's happened to
the selection at maxiaids but it's almost impossible to figure out
what you're getting there.

I used to have one from royal tell time that i really liked, it had 4
buttons and all the common watch functions and was digital. Somehow
it broke and no longer works late last year i got another one and
didn't look at the description to closely only to find out it's an analog watch.

What? why on earth are we reverting to analog? Why can't i find a
good digital watch anymore?

Using analog on a talking watch is just stupid unless the watch can
set itself and sync with the digital time which this one can't.


So with that rant having been written, anyone know where to find a
good talking watch? Preferably metal and with a round digital face.

And, no, i don't want a smart watch.


Thanks.
