That's exactly why they sell the speakers with fixed connections. So when one breaks you have to replace the whole set. Think of the bottom line.

I've used headphones for quite a while and I don't recall if my speakers had
wires permanently connected. If so, and if that is what is generally done,
I consider it bad design. I think speakers should be able to be connected
to wires, you would plug into the computer so that if they become damaged,
they can be easily replaced.

I cant get another cable because the cable that has a short is connected
permanently to the right speaker. I did get another cable, the one that
connected to the pc audio jack.My main issues is to find a pare of speakers
that has a long cord between them. I need about six feet to go across my
work area. All the USB speakers, have short cords. I am looking for another
2.0 or 2.1 satellite speaker system! I just will not use the brand of

Why not just get another cable? You would save a lot of money. If the
speakers stay in one place, that would be by far the cheapest way to solve
the problem if it is the cable.

Well, I am thinking after all my testing that one of my speakers has a
short in it! So has anyone heard of a set of speakers that does not rely
on a cable to connect the other speaker. That one has to rely on a
connecting cable to pare both speakers? I refuse to buy a set of speakers
where one always has a connecting wire to it, rather just have one that
allows one to connect both speakers manually! My speaker with the wire is
the one with the short. I had to reconnect the speakers to the pc with a
different audio cable to figure out it was not the audio sound card. I am
not very technical about what you would call a set of speakers connected
by a cable instead of one speaker having a wire that connect to the other
speaker. I want to avoid this issue if the one with the wire has the short
again! I only had these speakers for 5 years, my others lasted 10 years
and I actually gave them to someone when I moved! Thanks Heather






















Re: File Explorer View and Total Items

Doug Rose
 




Hi Joe, this issue was mentioned on Freedom Scientific podcast 184, they suggested making sure the file view is set to detailed mode.  Below is a transcript of the question.
And my second thing is kind of a longstanding thing that I’ve noticed, I just thought to bring up, probably all the way back to XP, I’m thinking.  The
reporting of the number of items in a list view in File Explorer or Windows Explorer is not very accurate.
So, for example, let’s say you’re in the Documents folder, and you’re moving down into seven of 12, and you’re moving down eight, nine.  And then it’ll
say, like, 14 of 22.  So it’s almost like it’s not seeing everything, or completely getting the total count of items in there.  And I’ve noticed that,
I think that’s been going on for a pretty long time.
GLEN:  And you’re running Windows 10 currently?
JASON:  Yes, sir.
GLEN:  Yeah.  This has come up in the last year or so, and I remember actually personally looking at it and not being able to replicate the problem in
more recent versions of Windows 10.
JASON:  Okay.
GLEN:  But I admit I haven’t looked at it in the last six or nine months.  Or I may have just gotten it wrong.  So probably worth us investigating again.
JASON:  Yeah, I just noticed it this morning.  That’s kind of what made me think to bring it up.  It’s like, oh, since I’m on here, I might as well ask
about that.  I was going through the Documents folder, as a matter of fact, and it was kind of doing the same thing I just mentioned.  So thought that
was quite unusual.
GLEN:  We got something from Aaron Spears.  And he said he’s set to Details Mode.  And so am I.  And he said that in Details Mode for him he’s not seeing
that problem, where you only get a count of how many items are on the screen, rather than how many items are in the list.
JASON:  Okay.  Okay.
GLEN:  So you might try Details Mode and see if that improves things.
JASON:  Thank you.  Appreciate everybody’s time.  Thank you.
GLEN:  Yeah.
RACHEL:  Yeah, thank you so much.
GLEN:  Thank Aaron.  I take no credit.

Joe, I've been using a program called Teracopy for a long time. I find it better when moving large files.

I've been moving 2 tb of data from my internal drive, all I use this drive for is storage. The o s and all programs on on a s s d.
Yes, there were a lot of interruption, about skipping, can't move this file, and more.
Definitely not a smoothe transfer
Suggestion appreciated.

File Explorer View and Total Items

Joe Orozco
 

I'm using the JAWS 2020 latest build on Windows 10. When I go into
File Explorer, JAWS will announce the highlighted folder or file and
give the total number of items in that folder. Except, this number is
wrong. It'll say File Name, 1 of 17, or some such. How can I configure
my view so that it accurately reads the total number of items in a
folder? Thank you so much for your help in advance.

Hi, I have the new Iphone se and I have been having trouble with my
text tone not working. Even downloaded anotherone and it did good for
a few days now back to not working sometimes. I already know it isn't
on mute. Just is strange that sometimes it works and sometimes it
don't. Wondering if anyone else has this trouble? My new phone does
have the newest update.
Question 2 On my windows laptop I have the new edge browser and was
wondering if there is a way to set it up like crome to where the
images are described? I use Jaws if that helps.
Thanks,
Amy

Hi Marie,
Yes, I realize that the apps I mentioned won't create labels,
but the way I read his message , it sounded like he wanted an alternative to
labels.
There are apps that will allow you to create audio labels,
but, as has already been stated, the labels can be accidentally discarded
with the packaging.
That is why I suggested the other apps, so the packaging could be identified
as it is removed from the freezer, refrigerator, or cabinet etc.
That is my current preference so I don't have to create so many labels.
Items I am going to keep, get labels,
and consumables such as food, are identified on an as-needed-basis.
Just suggestions, everyone has their unique situations.

HTH,
Rick

Richard,
While I use and love both of these apps, I don't think either of them will
let you create your own labels. I believe he is talking about stuff you
might put in a zip lock bag or a plastic freezer container which have no bar
code. That is the thing that Pen Friend does a great job on because you can
even put labels on clothing. The problem here is, if you use any custom
labels they might be thrown away by others. However, you can purchase more
labels when this happens.

Hi Steven,
You could try the product channel in the Microsoft Seeing AI app to identify
packages by bar code,
or try the Voice Dream Scanner app, to read the text on the packaging.
Both of these apps work great, but do require patience and trial and error.
I use both of them quite often, and am able to identify items in one way or
another.
Both of these apps can be found in the app store.

HTH,
Rick

Is there any type of system out there that would let me utilize my iPhone to
label freezer items? I tried the PenFriend and others in my household threw
away bags and packaging with the labels still on them, so I got rid of it.
Thanks for any ideas.

I unexpectedly had to go into hospital a few days ago because of
complications from a minor surgical procedure I had done shortly before.
Things are going well and the complications may well have been resolved.

I'm back now and I feel fine. I see the main list and the chat list have
been having a lively time in muy absense. I'm catching up on mail now.
And
when I'm not around, Laaz does his usual excellent job as moderator, which
I
very much appreciate.

Re: An Old Program

Gene
 

I haven't looked much at the page but there is a portable version which, if it is a typical portable version requires no installation. Therefore, you should see an exe file in the main folder that will run it.

If you still have problems, I modified something, I don't recall what, it was years ago, to allow me to place the file in the folder I want to generate the list for, and have the list appear in the same folder where the files are.

But the problem is: it's not an MSI or an exe file. It's an ISS file. I opened it with notepad and it looks to be a program code file calling itself
Inno Setup script
.
So I need to google some part of Inno Setup script to find out how to execute it. I don't know what Inno is but maybe google will tell me.

Well, I've read a little more and it looks like it's a file explorer
add-on and I'll have to install it into file explorer. So far, can't
figure out how.

Howard, no, you use your context key. Navigate to a directory and hit

Thanks Ron, but it looks pretty complicated to me. I downloaded it
and it contains hundreds of files that I don't understand. Looks
like source code in the C language. The install program doesn't
even seem to be an executable. Do I need a C compiler to put it
together? I just don't know where to start. It seems like, in the
old days, this chore was done with a simple one-line batch file. I
sure am behind in this stuff.

Hi Howard,

There is a Windows version of such a program that is far superior to
the old DOS based program or perhaps Windows 98 program you are
referring to. It is free and is called Path Copy and it's address is
https://pathcopycopy.github.io/
This program runs from the context menu and you can do a number of
things with it. It copies long name, short name, long path, short
path. It can copy the exact file names of all the files in a folder
to clipboard and you can then paste the list into a text editor and
save it anywhere you want.

This is what I use to make text delimited databases for all my
music/movies/books.

Hi anyone,
Years ago, I had a program that made a text (.txt) file containing

me where to get it and how to use it? Appreciate it. Thanks.
