Re: getting Jaws to speak at start up again

Smiling?
 

Making JAWS start up with the machine.

 

1. Go in to the JAWS menus by using the keystroke Insert+J.

2. you will be put upon Options by default, right arrow to Basics... and hit Enter.

3. Basic Settings... will open up and this is where you will Tab twice down to Automatically Start JAWS...

4. Press Enter here and just Tab through and set things to your liking, and OK it when done.

5. Now this is going to bring you back in to Basic Settings... where you hit Enter on Automatically Start JAWS...

6. Tab through and just see what else you may want to change and if nothing, Tab to OK.

Audio descriptions into Vimeo

Skye
 

Hi - does anyone know how to get audio descriptions into Vimeo?  A friend has created an incredible film and made significant effort for both audio descriptions and captions.  She figured out how to get the subtitles/captions file uploaded but don't know how to get audio descriptions into Vimeo.  Very few films even make the effort for audio descriptions so we can't let this be a wasted effort. 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or assistance!

Re: downloading dropbox

Gene
 

It sounds as though the problem is that the program updated itself and the person is seeing the new interface.
Open Drop Box in the system tray, I don't think the system tray dialog will work.
To open it, use the space bar to open the dialog when you are on the icon.
Tab until you get to display folders in. It’s a combo box.
Up or down arrow. whatever works, to Windows Explorer. You may see File Explorer, I don't know. Whichever you see, that is the old interface.
Tab to and activate the ok button.

It's good to run into you. Your name sounded familiar.


To make this tech related, they hide those icons just to be annoying.
I didn't do a thing to hide the icons just like your experience with

Not sure why anyone would ever choose that setting but as the setting exists there must be some value in it for someone.

Hi Heather,
 
Doing a quick search for:  How to export contacts from Windows 10 Mail?  Brought up the following:
 
Featured snippet from the web
Open Microsoft® Windows Mail then click File > Export > Windows Contacts. In the Address Book Export Tool dialog box, click CSV (Comma Separated Values).
In the Save exported file as: field, enter a file name for the exported Address Book file then click Browse.
Export Contact / Address Book Info to .CSV Files - Microsoft ...
 
Here's a link and another article:
 
 
How to Export Contacts From Windows Mail
Don't leave your contacts behind when you change email services
 by Heinz Tschabitscher
Writer A former freelance contributor who has reviewed hundreds of email programs and services since 1997.
our editorial process
 Updated on March 14, 2020
Young woman using laptop in cafe
If you've built one address book in
Windows Mail,
you shouldn't have to build that same address book again, even if you switch email programs or
email services.
 
You can export Windows contacts to a file format called
CSV
 (comma-separated values), from which most other email programs and email services can import your contacts.
 
This procedure works for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. In Windows 10, the People app contains the mail list; you cannot export contacts from the Windows 10
Mail app.
 
  Export Contacts and Email Addresses From Windows Mail 
 
To save your Windows Mail 8 and earlier contacts to a CSV file, select Tools > Windows Contacts from the menu in Windows Mail. Select Export in the toolbar.
Make sure CSV (Comma Separated Values) is highlighted.
 
Select Export. Pick a folder to receive the exported contacts or open a new folder. Type a folder name such as "Windows Mail contacts" under the File name.
Click Save then Next.
 
Make sure all address book fields you want to be included are checked. Note that
Windows Mail
 does not export first and last names separately, even though there are First Name and Last Name fields. Choose Name instead. Click Finish. Close out of
the remaining windows.
 
  Exporting Contacts From the Windows 10 People App 
 
You can't export your contacts located in the
People app of a Windows 10 computer
 to a CSV file. However, you can do this from your online Microsoft account and the online People app. From there you choose Manage | Export Contacts to
export the contacts to a CSV file. Go to the other email service and use the Import command to import your contacts to that service.
 
 



Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Also make sure the screen is maximized.  I know having the screen maximized with Jaws is important, with NVDA I'm not sure about since I run a program that maximizes my windows automatically.

Here you go:
1. From Outlook Express press, control, shift, + B, to open the address book.
2. Tab 1 time to the list view.
3. Press, control + N, for a new entry.  You'll land on the name page / tab.
4. You will be on the first name edit box, type in the first name, tab 2 times to the last name edit box & type in the last name.
5. A. Now, to enter an email address tab 4 times to, the email addressess edit box, type in the email address, tab to okay & press the spacebar.
5. B. If you want to add more than 1 email address, after you entered the first email address, tab 1 time to, Add, & press the spacebar.  This will add
the first email address & put you back into the email address edit box, so you can add an additional email address.  When you are done adding all the email
addresses, tab to the List of Email addresses, list view, arrow up & down to the email address that will be used as the main default email address, with the
main / default email address highlighted, tab to set as default button, press the spacebar, tab to okay, & press enter / spacebar to close & save the entry. 
Press Escape to close the address book.

Dear Voice Dream Community:

A global pandemic brings hardship for everyone. One group that suffers enormously are students, especially those with learning differences. With schools closed, they have less structure and less access to real-time expert support.

To support parents, educators, and students with learning at home, Voice Dream is offering a special “At Home” bundle for a limited time. The bundle contains Voice Dream Reader and Voice Dream Scanner for $9.99.

Please help us spread the word about this resource and share the following link with neighbors, colleagues, students, and family members:

Re: outlook express folder help

I just discovered that when the JAWS cursor is on and you arrow up or down in folder list, it will read a number of emails in that folder. Best I can tell it is the number of unread emails.

I am a long time OE user andI can't remember ever having this ability at least in Windows 10, can't remember in Win 7, it has been a long time since I used Win 7. But you can easyly find out the number of emails in a folder by going to an email in the folder and it will tell you what number it is in the total number of emails in the folder. example 1 of 50.

I am now running jaws 2020, windows 7, and outlook express. Before I installed jaws 2020 and after i had my
e-mail download into outlook express I could tell how many messages in each folder as i scrolled down the list of folders. When I scroll down the folders now jaws is not telling me the number of messages in the folder. Can anyone help me to be able to get this ability to let me know the number of messages in my folders as I scroll down through the folders in outlook express. Thank you for your help with this problem.

Yep, I went through several dogs and retired my doggy skills just before retiring myself in 2015.

Hi Chris,


I remember Xeric. Believe it or not, I have retired. It will be five years at the end of this month.


It's good to run into you. Your name sounded familiar.


To make this tech related, they hide those icons just to be annoying.
I didn't do a thing to hide the icons just like your experience with
the HP desktop.

On 4/27/2020 11:42 AM, chris judge wrote:
No problem. Every now and then I'll run across a computer with the desktop icons hidden. Not sure how it happens as one has to go in and manually do it, but I set up a brand new Hp computer for a guy a while ago and the icons were hidden right out of the box. Not sure why anyone would ever choose that setting but as the setting exists there must be some value in it for someone.

I met you a long, long time ago at the seeing eye. It was back in 1985. My dog was xeric, the big German sheppard with the attitude.

How have you been?

Hey Chris,


That definitely did the trick. The icons were hidden. Thanks.

Hey Lynn: I'm assuming you are using windows 10?

I wonder if your desktop icons have become hidden some how. Try this. Go to the desktop and unselect everything by holding the control key and pressing spacebar. Next, press the applications key. You should hear, view sub menu. Right arrow to expand the sub menu and arrow down. Make sure the show desktop icons is checked.

Hope this helps.

Just yesterday, I can't access anything from the desktop. I have to do a search which is rather cumbersome.


Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately, you can only put off Windows 10 updates for a week. If you have Enterprise Edition, then you can put them off for five weeks. Otherwise, hope the problem gets solved in a week, otherwise you're forced to take it. You could also try setting your Internet connection to metered. That's been known to work for some folks.

Here is news of another in the unending series of bad Windows 10 updates.
I've said before that people shouldn't automatically update and should wait
to see if new updates get bad press.

Re: How to record an internet vidio stream

Vaddy
 

Hmm, in case of a segmented stream like HLS etc. wget would hardly be capable of recording it. My choice, in order of personal preference, would be streamlink, VLC, or youtube-DL. Given an example of stream to be recorded, these recommendations may be refined.

On 26.04.2020 20:20, Steve Matzura wrote:
You can do it with wget. It's a bit geeky to set it up with all the required parameters in a batch file, and then you have to schedule when it starts and stops recording, but yes, it's quite doable.
