Stopping Chrome Download Alerts

Joe Orozco
 

Hi, to JAWS users using Chrome, have you found a way to stop JAWS from
regularly announcing download status? The verbal alert interrupts
across all applications, even if I do not have Chrome up as my active
window. It’s rather annoying. Thank you in advance for any fix
suggestions.

Subject: [TechTalk] What to do when your computer goes silent
 

Hi List, I am using a Windows 10 desktop computer using Jaws 2020 and Leasey 5.13. 

 

Sometimes it goes silent. 

 

I was wondering what steps you would try in such a situation.

 

Is there a keyboard command for Task Manager? If the computer is still silent, what would you do after issuing that command?

 

Would you try pressing Alt F4 and then Alt Tab and another Alt F4 until you think that you have shutdown all open windows?

 

Would you try the Leasey command of Tilda followed by either Alt Shift r for Restart or Tilda Alt Shift s for shutdown?

 

I’m afraid I’ve done so many shutdowns and restarts that I think that I may have caused damage to my computer.

 

I am hoping some safe successful solutions may be suggested.

 

Any such will be gratefully received and acted upon!

 

Sincerely, Vicky V

Vicky,

When jaws stops talking to me I simply press the windows key then type the word, jaws then press enter.  This always works for me.  Good Luck and Have A Good 1! de

Oh, that's a good one! I used to call the computer the Commission gave me grandpa. It wasn't an acronym for anything, just the way I felt about it when it wouldn't want to start. Pam.

Thanks very much for your suggestions! I have both NVDA and Narrator on my

I suffer the same sudden loss of Speech when using last years version of
Jaws 2019.


I do use the Alt-F4 keys to shut down, or I hope I am shutting things down.


I then hold my breath, say a little Prayer, and press and hold the Button
that turns my computer on, and I keep it pressed until the computer is
totally silent.


I then wait about 10 seconds, and press the On switch again, and let it
Boot up Normally.


I suffer this problem most often while in Thunderbird. How about you?


I have attempted to start NVDA and even Narrator, but on my System, when it
goes Silent, it remains quiet.


I have a friend who also uses Win 10, and he has the newest JAWS, and he
too suffers the Silent Treatment. But, his System will let him start
Narrator. Once it is started, he can then move around an shut everything
down normally.

Hi all,

I had a computer I called LG. It stood for Little Girl. Remember?

There was a little girl,
That had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead,
And when she was good,
She was very, very good,
But when she was bad,
She was horrid!

Yes, living here in North America, it seems the apple rules supreme.
When you take the price of a new s e, turnit into Canada bucks, throw in a
case, activation fee and taxes, the new s e is over seven hundred; that is
without a plan. Now I can eat pretty well for many many weeks on that much
money, if I don't skip the dishes.

Hey Colonel Monte, don't moan; just grab two, I'll come by with Santa
several weeks early to sneak down the chimney to grab the second one and
thus immerse myself in that great, wild garden where only apples grow!

I think the article I posted was a tad too generous in stating that Android
is in 70% of the world. Android has greater penetration worldwide than iOS
does--closer to 80%-85%! But, of course, the iPhone is produced in China and
imported to our countries for resale. If China's 1.3 billion people each
have one, there won't be enough iPhones left to export.

I'm tickled grey to see Apple trying to invade a market where it won't make
real deep penetration. In most countries of the world, $399.99 is hard to
amass; an Android can still be had for, say, $50-$200! It's going to be an
uphill climb for Apple for sure and I hope it doesn't SHOOT ITSELF in both
feet. Anyhow, it's stock was $292 today; perhaps the release of the sE2020
bumped it up 'cause I had seen it dive down to almost $165 recently.

Anyway, when I come grab my sE2020, we'll have a wild party to which no

Welcome (back) iPhone SE — but did Apple just cannibalize
itself?

Don't judge an iPhone by its cover... Remember iPhone SE?
It's that little rectangle which you could actually operate
one-handedly without spraining a finger.
Apple
released it in 2016, then stopped selling it in 2018. Now,
it's shockingly resurrecting iPhone SE for 2020, starting at
the (relatively) lower price of $399.

list of 2 items
• Looks: Pretty much the same as the iPhone 8 — a 4.7-inch
screen with a frame around it and a home button with Touch
ID. The real change lies on the inside...
• Specs: Better camera equipped with 4K video and portrait
mode. Also boasts a more powerful processor with the new A13
Bionic chip (sounds legit). Apple

says
it put "the brains" of iPhone 11 Pro in the body of SE.
list end

What interested us most was the timing of this launch...
Given the COVID-19 crisis, this might not seem like the best
time to ship a new product. Apple thinks it's a great time:

list of 2 items
• With the economy in shambles, it makes sense to introduce
a lower-cost phone. The new SE is $200 cheaper than the next
"cheapest" iPhone (and many Android models). A low-cost,
high-performance phone could thrive right now.
• With most Apple stores closed, people can't try before
they buy. Buying iPhones online becomes more attractive with
a lower price and newer product — Apple's trying to drive
excitement for online orders with this launch (people get
hyped on pre-orders).
list end
THE TAKEAWAY

Is Apple cannibalizing itself?... Cannibalization occurs
when a new product is so irresistible it steals sales from
your other (often higher-priced) products.
Tesla's Model 3 stole sales from its Model S. But Apple
probably did a lot of research on this risk and decided
that:

• More Upgrades: iPhone users might be more likely to
upgrade from their old phones after the launch of SE, with
that volume covering lost sales from pricier models.
• More Market Share: With this lower-priced option, Apple
might convert some Androiders — Google 's Android still
controls 70% of the world's cell phones.
• But if fancy new iPhone users change to the lower-priced
SE instead, that's a problem for Apple.

I'm very excited for this lunch.  I have had mine for over 3 years and it has worked great.  In fact, I'm ordering mine tomorrow from Verizon.  I'm getting mine right away because I need more memory.  I was thinking of getting an eight until I heard on the news that this one is finally being launched.  These will go quickly.
