Re: Windows 7 to Windows 10

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

It's kind of hard to say. I really think it depends on how happy you are with 7 and weather or not you want to continue with some of the issues that people have had there, issues with windows update and alike.

I used windows7 for a number of years and really grew to love it and have really thought about restoring my image, but windows10 really isn't all that bad either. I do really like a number of things about 10, things that are made much easier, such as the windows registration process, hardware detection and pulling down the necessary drivers, native support for bluetooth, etc. I'd note though that most of my experience with 10, the applications I use and how I use them, makes things really similar to how things worked for me in 7, so it hasn't been a major change really. For those who play around with the built in applications and some of the new features of 10, things may be different.

I'm not sure what the status is on getting 10 for free, but if you can still download and install it, I'd at least recommend playing around with it to see if you like it. It's easy enough to make an image of both 7 and 10 and change back, if you don't care for it. Dong so leaves you with the ability to change back to 10 at a later date and it'd still be registered, if I understand things correctly.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Re: Windows 7 to Windows 10

John Gregory <john.gm.gregory@...>
 

Hi Joe,

Know where you are coming from, I resisted the temptation of moving from Win
7 to Win 10, but have recently taken the plunge. It takes a little bit of
getting used to and an awful lot of reconfiguring to get it to stop nagging
about apps you really don't want, but overall it isn't that bad really.
However, one small piece of advice I would pass on is that even if you don't
like it and continue with Win 7, it is worthwhile initially upgrading so
that you can take advantage of the 'free' option should you want to move
over later. Just upgrade and your PC will be registered and then you can
'roll back' to Win 7 within the 10 day grace period from the upgrade (used
to be 31 days, but this appears to have been reduced to 10).

John.

Virtual Recorder updated to version 1.2

Carlos
 

I have updated Virtual Recorder to version 1.2.  Not much is new, but I added the ability to disable system sounds while recording which I think is a nice feature.  It is a checkbox in the main window who's state is retained between sessions.  I have not had the opportunity to thoroughly test this feature under all conditions or even in all versions of Windows, but it seems to work fine for me in both 7 and 10.  The link to the download page is below.  Of course, thanks to Rob Hudson for hosting as usual.


Re: getting a copy of windows 10 on dvd

john.gm.gregory@...
 

Hi Carlos,

Perhaps I should introduce myself first, my name is John Gregory and I am a
new member. Totally blind and find the information on this forum
fascinating. Keep up the good work, it is invaluable!

Now to the reason I am butting in on this thread between yourself and
Adrian, you are perfectly correct that Win 10 will automatically activate a
clean install following an upgrade, but when clean installing, there is an
option which needs to be clicked on at the 'Product Key' dialogue (excuse my
spelling, am in the UK). This is the "I do not have a product key" link. The
explanation below this states that "If you are reinstalling the software
there is no need to input a product key and Windows 10 will automatically
activate once the install is complete.

Once again, apologies for butting in, but I only noticed this option the
other day when reinstalling Windows 10 and trying to input my old Win 7 key.

Regards.

John.

With Windows 10 you don't have to worry about product keys. Since your
system has already been registered on the Microsoft servers, the next time
you reinstall it will be detected and Windows will automatically be
activated.

Re: New MacBook Pro starts at $1,499, some models available today

completely agree with you Gene. Take my example for example. The entry level macbook, without the touch bar, costs around 5500 turkish liras.  With that money, you could buy two performance class notebooks. I am not exaggerating. Or, you could buy a very high end ultrabook with a 512 gb PCE ssd.

That's being judgemental. You are paying for the brand, try not to forget that. If you think Apple products are a big fat rip off, simply don't join their ecosystem, end of. Keep using your Windows or Linux boxes, which are often cheap and can be made not to last. And because Apple has no competition, they can charge what they want, even if users do not like it.

Hi Carlos

Ok but can I download it with a screen reader and will it give me a
way of creating a disk?

Regards

Adrien

I believe the Media Creation Tool

can still do this.

Hi

Is it possible for me to download a copy of windows 10 to put on dvd
or can I get a copy to make into a dvd so I can reinstall if
necessary?

Regards

Adrien

The included Active@ Disk Image Lite seems to work well enough, but
any imaging application which can be made portable should work. I
primarily use Image for Windows

Carlos, this is primarily for you, as what I'm doing is probably
right up your alley.

I'm building a Windows Recovery stick. It's going to have your TWPE
as a bootable base, I just need to know which software you recommend
for image backup and restore these days. Maybe things have changed
since you built that thing last? What are your thoughts?

Re: getting a copy of windows 10 on dvd

LOL wouldn't it have been silly for me to suggest it otherwise? It wont create the disc for you, but it will allow you to create an ISO image which you can then write to a DVD using the Windows native ISO burner.

Re: latest itunes and jaws 17

Thom Spittle
 

Once you are playing the podcast. Tab to the progress indicator and when
you down arrow, it will back up a little bit. If you want to skip ahead, use
the up arrow.
If you hold the arrow down longer, it will move faster.

Thanks.


Re: Descriptive audio on DVD

Thom Spittle
 

DVD audio extractor will rip the audio tracks from a DVD. You can also play the described thack with this program as well. Or, rip it then listen to it.

Is there any media player for the PC which will allow you to access the descriptive audio when present on a DVD?
