Re: Dropbox Question About Saving Shared Files

Steve Matzura
 

Someone shared a file with me. I clicked the link to acces the file. One of the options was a download menu button. When I opened the menu, "Save to my Dropbox" was one of the choices, so I chose that option. Of course, I had to log in to my own Dropbox, which I successfully did. The file was saved. I know it was, because when I did it again, it saved a second copy with a numeric addition to the filename. But I can't find any of them anywhere. I suspect this may also be a Windows Search problem, probably not searching subdirectories as it should, because I can think of no other reason why this file is unfindable. If I look at recently added files on the Dropbox Website, the file is there--in fact, they all are--but nowhere am I told in what folder those files are stored. This is the problemk, long-winded version.

help people with visual impairments solve Google reCAPTCHA by
transferring the task to friends. Research participants will be
divided into requesters and helpers. Requesters will be asked to use
our browser extension via remote sessions that would last 1 hour,
during which they will be asked to log in some websites in browser
private mode and transfer the Google reCAPTCHA testing while the
helpers will wait for messages from them and solve the CAPTCHA task
via a webpage link. At the end of the study, participants will be
invited to participate in a 30-minute remote exit interview aimed at

JAWS2020 Feature for Stopping Jaws from Cutting Off Speech, FSCast 186

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Thought some of you might be interested in this FSCast.

Note:  The part of the FSCast that pertains only to this Jaws feature is at the bottom, below the 2 links.
 
New post on Freedom Scientific Blog
 
FSCast 186, Blindness consultant Joe Strechay, a new Freedom Scientific Training podcast, and a demo of the JAWS feature to prevent speech cut off
by FSCast
 
On FSCast 186, we meet blindness consultant and TV producer Joe Strechay  who helps ensure that blind people are accurately portrayed in media. There’s
news about the new Freedom Scientific training podcast, and Jonathan Mosen drops in with a demo of the new JAWS feature to prevent speech cut off with
Bluetooth headphones and some sound cards.
 
Click this link to listen:
 
 
To read the full transcript click the link below:
 
 
 
Jaws feature part of the transcript:
 
 
Over the last couple of months we’ve been talking about the new JAWS feature that prevents speech from being cut off when listening using Bluetooth headphones
or listening on certain laptops.  Fortunately, I don’t have the problem.  So it’s been really hard for me to demonstrate it.  But turns out that longtime
FSCast host Jonathan Mosen does.  He has an HP Spectre Folio that shows off this problem really easily.  Jonathan was kind enough to send us an excerpt
from his Mosen at Large podcast, where he shows off the new JAWS feature at work.  So Jonathan, it’s all yours.
Excerpt  from Jonathan Mosen’s Mosen at Large podcast
 
JONATHAN MOSEN:  Let me demonstrate the problem so you can hear what this is like by just running JAWS without this new enhancement that I want to show
you enabled.  So I’m going to press a shortcut key that I have assigned to JAWS.
JAWS VOICE:  Ows professional.  Desktop.  Folder view.  List view.  Not selected.  Recycle bin.  One of 33.
JONATHAN:  There you go.  You can actually hear it right away.  It sort of said “ows Professional” because I’ve been sitting here with my laptop making
no sound, and it just woke up.  Even this pause is long enough for me to demonstrate the problem.  If I check the window title, “sktop One,” and you can
hear that it missed the beginning of “desktop.”  So it sort of said “sktop One.”  I’m going to run Microsoft Word.
JAWS VOICE:  tana.
JONATHAN:  You can really hear it.  My soundcard driver has actually recently gotten worse at this issue, and it’s now hibernating very quickly.  I have
my keyboard echo turned off, which probably exacerbates the problem.  But I just don’t need my keys echoing back to me.  I’m going to type “This is a test”
and now read the current line.
JAWS VOICE:  “Is a test.”
JONATHAN:  Right?  So you missed the first word entirely there.
JAWS VOICE:  “Is a test.”
JONATHAN:  Is a test.  If I do it quickly enough, if I read the same line twice quickly...
JAWS VOICE:  “T H I S.  This is a test.”
JONATHAN:  So as long as I’m quick enough, and I keep the soundcard alive, I can hear what I’m doing.  Now, of course if you’re navigating word by word,
this is a real issue.  I’ll go to the top of the file and now move slightly slowly, word by word.
JAWS VOICE:  [Indiscernible small portions of each word “this is a test”] .
JONATHAN:  It’s really difficult to hear; isn’t it.  How do we fix this?  It’s very easy with the latest build of JAWS to address this.  I’m going to go
into the Settings Center.  And you can do that by pressing the JAWS KEY with F2 to get to the list of managers, if you like.  But JAWS seasoned users,
or those who just are shortcut ninjas will know that you can go into the Settings Center by pressing the JAWS KEY with the number 6 on your number row.
JAWS VOICE:  JAWS Setting Center dialog.  Search box edit.  CTRL+T.
JONATHAN:  The first thing we need to do is load the default configuration because this setting applies across the board to JAWS.  To do that, I’ll press
CTRL+SHIFT+D for default.
JAWS VOICE:  JAWS Setting Center default applications.
JONATHAN: We’re now in an edit field where we can search for JAWS settings.  You can fossick around the tree view here to your heart’s content, and you’ll
find just how configurable JAWS is.  But I’m going to type the word “cut,” C U T.  That’ll be enough.  And I’ll press the TAB key.
JAWS VOICE:  Search results list box.  Avoid speech cutoff when using Bluetooth headphones or some soundcards, not checked.
JONATHAN:  And there’s an option here called “Avoid speech cutoff.”  And I’m going to press TAB, which will get me into the Help for this feature, and
do a JAWS Say All to hear the full description. 
JAWS VOICE:  Bluetooth headphones and speakers shut down after a while of not receiving sound to conserve battery.  If this checkbox is selected, JAWS
will keep them awake by constantly playing silence.  You will not hear anything, but your device will remain active, resulting in more consistent speech. 
Note that the battery of your headphone/speakers could drain faster if you turn this on.  This checkbox is cleared by default.
JONATHAN:  I must say I have not found anything substantial in the way of battery drain by enabling this feature.  The HP Spectre Folio laptop that I have
has phenomenal battery life.  I mean, depending on what I’m doing, it can be anything from five or six hours if I’m doing really aggressive tasks like
audio editing, all the way through to 12, 13, 14 hours or more if I’m just doing a bit of basic word processing.  I’ll SHIFT+TAB.
JAWS VOICE:  Search results list box.  Avoid speech cutoff when using Bluetooth headphones and some soundcards, not checked. 
JONATHAN:  And I’ll check this box.  And now I’m going to exit Settings Center by pressing ALT+F4.
JAWS VOICE:  JAWS Settings Center dialog.  You have made changes to default application settings.  Do you want to save them?  Yes button, Alt+y.
JONATHAN:  Yes, I do.  I’ll press ENTER to accept.
JAWS VOICE:  Document, one word, edit.
JONATHAN:  Miraculously, now everything has cleared up.  Night and day, mate.  Night and day.  So if I press the JAWS KEY with T to read the window title...
JAWS VOICE:  Document, one word, print.
JONATHAN:  And it’s fine.
JAWS VOICE:  Document, one word, print.
JONATHAN:  I read a Say line.
JAWS VOICE:  This is a test.
JONATHAN:  And everything is working fine.  So it’s a very simple thing.  It’s just a little checkbox, but it makes the world of difference to people like
me who are using particular Realtek sound drivers.
One thing to note:  There is a tradeoff with this.  Because JAWS is sending sound to the soundcard at all times – it’s essentially just sending silence
to keep it awake – that means that the soundcard is always on, so audio ducking is affected.  You will unfortunately have to make a choice between whether
JAWS ducks the audio or whether this feature is on.
By “ducking” audio I mean that you can have JAWS now slightly turn down what you’re listening to.  If you have music on in the background while you’re
working, JAWS will turn that down a little so that you can better hear your speech.  You can’t have that and this feature enabled at the same time.  For
me, the user experience has improved so much by enabling this checkbox that I’m glad to forsake the possibility of audio ducking.

So is Braille Blaster a Braille translation program, like Duxbury? Is Duxbury still around, does anyone know? When I had a Blazer, I embossed directly from my BrailleNote Apex via a USB to serial converter. I wore out two Blazers.' The Blazer is a good little machine; neither of mine lasted very long, but they eid good work.

The problem I am having when I go to print text I have brought up into the Braille Blaster translation program and I go to print the text for some reason the text does not get to the Braille printer.

Hi All,
I'm running Windows 10 with Jaws 16 thru 2018.  How do I set-up Windows 10 so I don't have to put in a password everytime I start the computer?  I would
like for it to just start, & go to the desktop.  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

From: Mike B.
1. Open the Run dialogue with Windows key + R, type what's below, & press enter:
 netplwiz
You can also type this in the search field in the start menu.
2. You'll be on  the User Accounts dialog, select the user account that you want to turn off the password login for, and then uncheck labeled Users must
enter a user name and password to use
this computer.
3. Tab to the Apply, button & press the spacebar, & it'll say something like Automatically sign in box.  You'll need to type in your password, tab 1 time,
type your password again to confirm your password, now tab to, Okay, & press enter.
Restart your computer to see how it works.

How To Automatically Login In Windows 10
 
Want to quickly boot to your Windows 10 desktop by skipping the login screen?
Would you like to avoid typing your account password each time you turn on your PC?
You can configure Windows 10 to automatically boot to the desktop or Start
screen.
 
The core benefit of configuring Windows 10 to automatically sign-in is you
don’t need to remember the password, which also means that you save a couple
of seconds during the boot. This, in turn, means that Windows 10 boots to the
Start screen or desktop a couple of seconds faster.
 
The procedure to set up automatic logon in Windows 10 is very similar to the
one in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
 
This method is applicable to both local user account and Microsoft account.
In other words, whether you’re using a Microsoft account or local user
account, you can use this guide to enable automatic logon.
 
WARNING: Enable automatic logon only if you are the sole user of your
computer. If you often share your computer with others, others will be able
to peek into your account without knowing the password.
 
You can follow one of the methods given below to turn on automatic login in
Windows 10.
 
Method 1 of 2
 
Automatically logon without password
 
This is the easiest way to automatically login to Windows 10 without entering
the password.
 
Step 1: First step is to open Run command box by simultaneously pressing
Windows logo and R keys (Windows+R). In the Run dialog box, type Netplwiz and
then press Enter key.
 
Step 2: In the resulting User Accounts dialog, select your user account first
and then uncheck the option labelled Users must enter a user name and
password to use this computer. Click Apply button to see Automatically sign
in box.
 
Step 3: In the Automatically sign in dialog, type your password and then
re-enter the password to confirm the same.
 
Finally, click OK button.
 
Method 2 of 2
 
Turn on automatic sign-in using Registry
 
If, for some reason, you’re not able to configure Windows 10 to automatically
logon by following the above method, please use this method.
 
Step 1: Open Registry Editor. To do so, type Regedit in the Start menu search
box or Run command box and then press Enter key. Click Yes button when you
see the UAC (User Account Control) box.
 
Step 2: In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following key:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
 
Step 3: On the right-side, look for the entry named DefaultUserName,
double-click on it and make sure that your Microsoft account or local user
account name is appearing under Value data box.
 
Step 4: Next, on the right-side again, look for the entry named
DefaultPassword. If the entry doesn’t exist, please create one by
right-clicking on the empty space, clicking New and then clicking String
Value. Rename it to DefaultPassword and enter your password in the Value data
box. Click OK button.
 
Step 5: Finally, you need to enable automatic logon. To do so, on the
right-side (once again), look for the entry labelled AutoAdminLogon and then
change its value from 0 (zero) to 1 (one).
 
That’s it! Restart your PC to see your Windows 10 automatically logging into
your account without asking you to enter the password. Good luck!
 
Without a doubt, the second method is not as easy as the first one.
Have fun with Windows 10!
Russ

Re: MVDA and the clock

heather albright
 

The time was wrong when I used NVDA and i went over to jaws and narrator, they both had the right time! So I went back to NVDA which still had the wrong time. So I went threw all the updates, no issues they were all current. So this may sound strange but, I found an add on I wanted to add to my NVDA. After I added that update for OCR, it went back to normal for the time! Very weird! I can say that has never happened before.

Are you saying the time is wrong or its read in an unusual way, such as reading punctuation as in six colon twenty-five. If the actual numbers are wrong, I have no idea what is causing that because, as far as I know, all screen-readers get the time from the same information.

MVDA and the clock

For some reason my NVDA gives you the wrong time. I know it is an issue with NVDA because jaws and narrator give the correct time! So any ideas how to fix it?
Thanks Heather

constant hard drive activity

Howard Traxler
 

Hi all,

All the time that my computer is running, I hear this noise that the hard drive makes when it reads and/or writes.  Sounds like a berping noise about once per second.  Is there a way that I can find out what's happening in there or maybe even stop it?  I'm sure that the constant activity is causing unnecessary wear on the components.

Thanks.
Howard


Re: unable to open any of my brouzing applications

Susie Stageberg
 

Could be a problem with your Intwnet connection? My test of this is:

Press Start Menu key plus R for the run dialog.
Type: wwwddgoogle.com Prett Enter.

If it takes you to Google, you've got an Internet connection. If it won't, then there's a glitch—is the modem turned on?

Re: Transferring Outlook info to my new computer

Susie Stageberg
 

I too am intwested in this topic, as I have lots of e-mail saved in Outlook 2010 folders and would be truly bereft if there's no way to just import the lot into whatever e-mail program a new computed (it's inevitable, isn't it?) might be running.

Hi all, I have just bought myself a new notebook running windows 10. I have its setup which includes the office programs. Now I am wondering if there is an easy way to transfer all my emails over to the new computer without having to download them all. Both computers are running windows 10 and whatever outlook comes with office 365. Is there also a way to transfer my rules to the new computer or do I need to set these up again? I’m pretty sure I can do the address book myself because I have done this in the past.

 

In the past when I have changed computers, I haven’t had many emails, so it didn’t worry me downloading them onto the new computer. I have all my email programs to only delete off the server if deleted from deleted items folder. So I have all my emails on the server so I can download them again however I have a mixture of read and unread messages in my current folders so if I download them all again I won’t know which I have read and which I haven’t.

 

Thanks for any help.

Re: Zoom Workshop By Landline

Carolyn Arnold
 

Our church is switching to Zoom from Go to Meeting, but right now with Go to Meeting, I can get on with my iPhone using commas, after the call in number, two commas, access number, two cfommas, pound, two commas, pound again, and I'm in. A lady on a chat list told me to do that and said that Shift 7 would give me the commas, because the key pad is up, and I'd heard that, but never could figure out where the comma would be.

I was timed out on my iPhone too before I was given the instructions about the commas. But, then, if the host is not allowing, then you have a problem.

Hi, All:

I called the host before the meeting and she said she thought she had not allowed the phone part since people were being timed out putting in the ID and pass code.

I didn't get the microphone to work, but I had audio so was able to listen to the meeting.

Thanks to everyone for their help and patience.

Thanks. Oh to be rich, that they'd want to cater to me; I could give them a piece of my mind.

Hi Carolyn, Simply put bouncing is caused by your email provider. I believe what happens is that your email provider decides to bounce the messages back to groups.io and you don't even get to see them. I have yet to see any questionable messages from groups.io entailing a link to unbounce yourself from a groups.io group though. But then again Gmail does notbounce messages, or at least it hasn't in my case.

Stay well,.

the site and was not getting very far.

I believe I need to take bouncing 101.

Do you get an error message such as a page not found error when you open a browser?
