Re: Urgent help needed: failing hard drive

Sylvia A <sylvia0647@...>
 

Hello, I have all of my data backed up on an external so this problem
doesn't seem like a total disaster. This computer is about 6.5 years
old so I might have to contact Dell to find out if the drive can be
replaced at all. I'm not really looking forward to having to reinstall
windows but if that's going to be my best option, I'm going to ask for
help.

Well we also need to know the type of the HDD. IDE or SATA? I think you could still find IDE hard drives, although the prices may sound crazy.

Hi Sylvia,

Although you might require a technician to replace the drive, hard drives are not specific to the model/manufacturer of the machine so finding a replacement should not be a problem. As to whether you should just purchase a new machine instead of replacing the drive, that is your decision. However, if you wind up having to pay a technician, the total price of the drive and paying the technician might wind up being enough that purchasing a new machine might be an option worth considering. If you can have someone replace it for free or very little, replacing the drive will usually be less expensive.

Subject: [TechTalk] Urgent help needed: failing hard drive


Hi list, I'm in need of some urgent help. My particular issue is with
my C drive and this only started this morning. I've been getting a
message which states that windows has detected a problem with my main
drive. hdd health also reports that the health of the drive is at 4
per cent. I'd like some advice on a few things.

Do I need to think about replacing my hd or should I consider getting
an entirely new system? This machine is a dell xps 8100 so I don't
even know if I can find a replacement drive for this machine.

I have more questions I would like to ask but I'll wait for initial
suggestions before I ask anything else.
Thanks,
Sylvia.

Sorry to here it...<SAD>
If only the HDD dead, you could just replace it. Of course, you may need to reinstall Windows and all your programs. You may need to ask a tech for help.
Depending on the age of your computer? you could also think about getting a new one. It depends on your budget.
Hope this gives you an idea.

Re: Accessible disk imaging tool?

I just did a clean re-install of Windows and thought this would be a good time to make an image of the drive.

I'll give Image For Windows another try, then. It was easy to make the image and restore it with that program, at least it was easy in XP.


Thanks,

~Ann

PS! Carlos, I used your Windows10 WinPE image to do my clean re-install from, and it worked beautifully. Thanks for sharing it.

The size of the download is not really an indication of the main program size itself since the installer includes other supplementary components.

Re: Running android APPS on windows

It can probably run without touch screen support in a VM, but Android keyboard accessibility is limited. Note that most of this is just logical guesswork since I have only read vague references about running Android in a virtual machine. I have never actually tried it myself so you're on your own.

Hi All,
So, been trying to figure this out for a while. And while I'm sure I will
receive some comments, here it comes, regardless. So thought, I'd try
running android APPS on the laptop. I have a few questions, however. 1)
While using android APPS, could I get say, talkBack running, and use it
with the keyboard, as if it was a bluetooth keyboard? 2) If not, any ways
of getting speech in them? 3) Any accessible, preferably free utilities
that would open the apps? Been trying blue stacks, bluestacks.com , but
honestly, I tried everything with NVDA, that I could, with a user guide
front of me, nothing. I'm not very good with JAWS and window eyes, but
seriously, Narrator got to the furthest. It said loading data, please wait
a moment, but that's it. So assuming that what I want can even be done, is
there a way to use this app, or is this totally inaccessible? And if yes,
how, please? And if not, any alternatives? Thanks ever so much on this
one!

Gene, thank you for the good and informative tutorial. I
will save this. You were my first Firefox link opener from
Outlook, and up you popped. I double checked then, went to
email from cousin with link, opened right up. It will be
interesting to see if links open easier in Firefox; only
time will tell.

After proofing and getting ready to send, I arrowed to your
link and could arrow through that. I did have to route JAWS
to PC to read the from line, but could do it, which I
haven't been able to do recently. I do not know if this is
directly related to Firefox or something getting change when
I was loading it. I got almost all done, got my husband to
check, and he said it was complete. I could hardly believe
that I had done it! He really preferred that I not do it,
but it looks like it could have been the right thing to do,
in any case, did not hurt anything.

Thank you again for explaining things and for taking the
time to send the link to your tutorial.

The presentation deals with the old menu version of Windows

Most of what is discussed for Thunderbird is still accurate

There are different ways to save favorites. One way is
control d. Then change the title if you wish or leave it.
Then press enter.
To see favorites, starting with the last one you saved, use
the command alt b. Then start up arrowing. You can also
use first letter navigation in the menu as you could in
Internet Explorer.

In addition, Firefox has a search favorites feature that I
won't explain here.

Alt b is used to open the favorites menu because in firefox,
they are called book marks, not favorites.

Thank you. I intend to down load Fox Fire tomorrow. Then
I'll decide which of the two email clients to down load.
Which is the more accessible, or is that a loaded question,
i.e., there is this and that about each of them?

I am wondering if just hitting enter opens an email; how to
access boxes; what to do to make sure unread message
continue to show as unread, even if I've arrowed past them;
is first-letter navigation workable; are the folders
configured more like Outlook Express or like Outlook; how do
I attach an attachment; how to I open an attachment; how do
I set up folders, I assume the same as in Outlook and OE,
Control-Shift-E?

So, I have a lot of questions, probably some that I have not
thought of. I am hoping that I'll be able to read links and
email addresses in them. I did copy one today, took it to
Word pad, could arrow right through it. I prefer not to have
to do all of that extra maneuvering, since it seems like a
set back, never had to do that in the past. It seems like
regress not progress.

I am wondering how to get my folders and contacts
transferred.

Please, everyone, tell me your opinion. I am open minded to
either of these email clients or any other good free but
accessible one.

Carlos, what is your recommendation as an alternative to
Outlook, an alternative that will stay around? Also, what
does one do to get another email client? Is there some way
to download it and it over ride the present one? Would the
contacts be picked up by the new one? I paid to have my
contacts imported, but had to edit them for Outlook. About
half way through, the last half just disappeared. Thankfully
enough, I had a copy of my contact addresses in a word file,
so had to do about 50 or so of them from scratch.

but immediately I got a solution - copy message, get out
of message,
start again, paste, and continue.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

I don't know what program is being used but her message
said that
initially, links were more friendly. Assuming that the
same program
is being used now, it certainly may be some problem with
her computer.
But we need more information to discuss the matter further
and perhaps
reach a conclusion.

Also, you are discussing your experience as one user. It
is not
proper to generalize from one users experience to the
performance of a
program in general. Your experience indicates that a more
general problem may exist.
it is not a definite indication that a general problem
exists.

No, it's not just her computer. If memory serves, I think
she uses
outlook 2013, and clicking links is a hassle.



At times, you have to select the link, paste it into the
address bar,
because pressing enter or spacebar on the link will not
simply launch it.

In other email programs I've used, none of that needed to
be done, so
I doubt it's a computer issue.

It's happened to me as well which is why I stated what I
did at the start.

But that is some sort of problem specific to your
computer.
Links were not more friendly. Something changed in your
computer. It
may not matter to you enough to experiment but you might
well be able
to work around whatever the problem is by using another
browser. It's
unfortunate that so many blind computer users appear so
resistant to
trying other browsers than Internet Explorer. If people
would just
try another browser, Firefox is more similar to Internet
Explorer than
Chrome, they might be surprised how little they have to
learn in the
transition.

When I first got my computer last year, links were more
friendly, and
I clicked on any of them that came through, but now, I
have to wrestle
with them a lot of the time, and still can't get to the
intended subject sent.
It
could be that if I put forth more effort - but then, there
is more out
there than struggling for a length that is not going to be
a life
saver or a money maker for me or anyone I know.

Chris, it is not that hard to email yourself the link and
then show
the reader on the Mac and hit command shift I. I just did
this with
your current link, And was able to show the reader and
copy the text.
One thing you have to realize, is that some people are not
a fan of
clicking links. And if you were one of those people, six
strapped to
the group below. I will be sharing stuff like this and I
am also still
apart of Matt daily news which Chris used to share
articles from all
the time. So have fun and enjoy.

Re: Running android APPS on windows

Short of running a full installation of Android in a virtual machine, you probably can't do most of what you are trying.

Hi All,
So, been trying to figure this out for a while. And while I'm sure I will receive some comments, here it comes, regardless. So thought, I'd try running android APPS on the laptop. I have a few questions, however. 1) While using android APPS, could I get say, talkBack running, and use it with the keyboard, as if it was a bluetooth keyboard? 2) If not, any ways of getting speech in them? 3) Any accessible, preferably free utilities that would open the apps? Been trying blue stacks, bluestacks.com , but honestly, I tried everything with NVDA, that I could, with a user guide front of me, nothing. I'm not very good with JAWS and window eyes, but seriously, Narrator got to the furthest. It said loading data, please wait a moment, but that's it. So assuming that what I want can even be done, is there a way to use this app, or is this totally inaccessible? And if yes, how, please? And if not, any alternatives? Thanks ever so much on this one!

While the button/control you want to label has focus, press Insert+F2 and select
"Prompt Create"

Subject: [TechTalk] Labeling buttons with JAWS

Can anyone give me step by step directions on how to label buttons in programs using JAWS? I have to admit that I did try googling for this information, but mainly came up with instructions for labeling text links.

 

Any ideas or directions?

 

Thanks much,
