Re: Saving a username and password

For IE11 you need to check the checkbox for IE11 to remember your user name and passwword before pressing the sign-in button.  Then after you press the sign-in button you should get a notification bar dialogue press, Alt + N, to open then tab to the, Yes button, and press the spacebar to save the log-in information.
 
For Chrome, below are a few different notes:
From: Dan Kerstetter
You can press shift f6 to get to the save password dialog.
HTH
Dan  
 
From: Steve Nutt
Alt+Shift+A does it as well, takes you straight to the notification.
All the best
Steve 
 
From: John Doering
I believe you can also hit F6 once signed in to get a dialog to save the password for the site.
HTH,
John Doering 
 
From: Rebecca Lineberger
When Chrome asks if you want to save a password when you first visit a web site, you should be able to get to the save button by pressing the, F6 key.  I haven’t done it for a while, so can’t remember if it takes more than one press of that key to get there.  When you do, press enter on that
save button.  I haven’t changed a password, so have not been asked about updating, but would assume the process is the same.

I am using JAWS 20 with Windows 10. I updated my email with BARD and had to then update my password. When I go to the initial log-in page, I have to type in my new information, and then it asks me if I want to have it stored for further use. Then in what seems to be about a fourth of a second, it moves on to the main page. Does anyone know how I can accept their offer to store the new email address and password?

 

Thanks for any help,

Re: having sound issues

heather albright
 

I have an hp desktop. So I called MS support and they had to fix my drivers that would not update, i guess. I asked the guy to tell me what he did and I guess he did not get it. So they fixed it but, I do not know what they did even though I asked him how they resolved my issues!It seems I have 2 sound cards according to him which I did not know I did have. So I still do not know which one jaws is using, they did not tell me! I did not get a report of what they did after the call so if it happens again, I still do not know how to fix it on my own! I ran the trouble shooter and it kept telling everything was worker right but, when he did it, it said it had problems. So wondering what he did to fix them for next time woe! Heather

This has happened to my partner after every major Windows update. She
has a Dell Lattitude and is using JAWS. Dell had her disable the Real
Tech audio drivers so the computer would use the computer speakers.
This does fix the issue but like I said, every major update
re-installs the Real Tech drivers again and this process starts all
over again. Hope this helps.

It seems to be an issue common with dell. I have an XPS 8930, and although I love the machine for the most part, I've had many issues with the sound. I finally ordered a good USB sound card and M going to forgo the onboard sound card.

Re: recording computer Audio

Gene
 

Here is the download link for Virtual Recorder portable. It is very important that free Send Space users read the information after the link. It isn't safe to download from Send Space unless you know this information.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/cp2nf8

When you are a free Send Space user, you get advertising when you download. This advertising is hacked at times and the hacked advertising may try to download malware to your machine. To avoid this, stop advertisements from Send Space in the following way:
When you are on the download button, don't activate it. Open the context menu and use whatever your browser calls saving a file from the context menu. It may be save target as, it may be save link as, or ;perhaps something else. If you save in this way, no advertisements will be shown. The reason this works is that the button, though it appears as a button, is actually a link.

You can probably use the virtual recorder program. I'll send a link later
to the portable version the late Carlos made far more accessible. Use the
what you hear option for recording.







Since so many sound cards don't support what you hear any more, unless yours
does, this would be the easiest way to record.







If you have problems using the program, ask here. You tab around to see
most settings. I don't use it much and I don't recall if there are any
menus, but either their aren't, or most of what you do is gotten to by
tabbing.

Hi all,

I have recently installed a chrome extension 'read aloud'.

This wonderful extension reads aloud any thing so long as it is being
read through in Chrome.

It uses Premium Wavenet voices from Google. Here is the URL:


https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/read-aloud-a-text-to-spee/hdhinadidafjejdhmfkjgnolgimiaplp

now the question. the challenge is that i can't seem to record
anything that read with this extension. On contacting the developer,
he told me he hasn't incorporated this facility because of copywrite
issues.

Is there anyway i can record the audio manually on my PC?

Thank you,

Hi William.  I have an HP Elitebook 8570P, and if your laptop is anything like mine, on the bottom near the rear of the unit where the battery is located, you will find 2 releases that feel like switches that are spring loaded.  One of them releases the battery, and the other releases the cover.  With the unit on a table with the rear facing you, I believe that the left latch releases the battery, just release it and tilt the battery toward you.  The right latch releases the cover, just kind of push down gently and slide it away from you.  My HD was held in with four spring-loaded screws.  It is very easy to replace.

he told me he hasn't incorporated this facility because of copywrite
issues.

Is there anyway i can record the audio manually on my PC?

Thank you,

Hi Chris,

No Humanware Companiln required.
I just use the standard windows keystrokes to select drives,folders, and files.
Then I use the f2 key to rename the selected file.

I believe you need to use the humanware companion to do that.

Hi all,

Does anybody know how to give titles to notes I record on my Victor reader stream? I think I read that this can be done but I'm not sure how.

Thanks.

Troy

Hi Audrey. I have had pretty good luck recording music with my DM-620, both
with the unit's microphones and through the microphone jack which also
serves as a line-in. The DM-620 has 3 microphones though, and if you leave
the center mic turned on, I seem to get more rumble in my recordings and
they just sound kind of funky and out of phase. You can turn it off under
"Microphone select."

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well and coming to the end of the lockdowns.

I am Audrey Joy in NYC.

I have 2 questions:
1. A friend just gifted me a brand-new Olympus DM620. Does anyone have a
manual in braille, or other accessible format? Can I use it for music,
although it says "voice recorder" on the box?

2. Does the BlShell phone have any braille functionality, as the IPhones do?

Looking forward to your replies.

Have a wonderful day and stay well.

Audrey

Hi all,

Don't know about the Olympus recorder. The Blind Shell phone is not a smart phone, so doesn't have the capability of connecting to a braille device. Look at the Smart Vision2 from Irie-AT.
