Under windows 10, Narrator is available after the startup disk you create boots up.

Good evening Nancy, the easiest way to do this to secure all of the
personal
settings you have for your computer is to create an image of your hard
drive
on another drive, which will give you the capability of bringing your
machine back to the moment you created the image.

To begin with, determine what you really need to keep for a
restoration. If
you have copies of music, emails, or text that you have already put away,
then you can remove them from your drive before starting in order to keep
the image within manageable limits. This is only necessary if space is an
issue.

When you've accomplished your housecleaning, check to see how much
space is
being used. Then look at your external drives to determine where you have
sufficient space to store your image.

To begin, tap your Windows key and type in the word "backup". This will
open up your restore utility, tab to "backup and restore windows 7" and
select by pressing enter. Press the tab several times until you see
create an image of this computer. Press the enter key to select this
item,
and after a short time, the next tab will show you an option of which
drive
you may select. This only occurs if you have other drives plugged in
at the
moment.

Finally, launch the process, and give yourself a few hours to do
something
else. You can use the computer while this is happening, but I suggest
it may
be risky. I do mine overnight.

The computer will inform you when it's finished, and offer you the
opportunity to create a startup disk. You must select this option and be
ready with a blank CD, DVD, or memory stick to record this special boot
material. It is altogether likely, that if your computer has a CD/DVD
drive,
your BIOS has been set to see it first in the boot sequence. If your
computer has no media drive, that it is altogether likely that your BIOS
will see a device such as a memory stick or a remote CD drive as first in
the boot sequence.

Now, when it comes time to restore from that image, start your
computer with
the CD – memory stick ready to go. Give your system a minute or two to
sort
itself out, which it will do without speech. Generally, hitting the enter
key a couple of times will launch the restore. If not you may need
someone
to take a peek at the screen.

Just for your information, there is a circulation of Windows PE that can
come up talking and will give you control of the image restoration.
Probably
far more complexity than that for which you are prepared.

I hope this is helpful, and that if anyone sees I've missed something,
please jump in.

Hi All, Thanks to y'all I have gotten to the point where I am wanting to
get a copy/clone of my laptop's hard drive so I will be able to restore
it with most of the tweaks I like to have on my machine should the need
ever arise.


Is there a place to get instructions on how to clone a hard drive?


I am running win10 and one of the latest jaws. My laptop has a 1TB SSD
and I have 2 1 TB WD external My Passports ready to receive the
clone/copy.


I don't know how often I should clone my PC as it is not a business
machine...just my personal device.


Your suggestions and help will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in Advance!

Re: ISO an accessible UPS for a home office.

Hi Rick,

Thank you for the feedback. Yes, I figured and was hoping that it would be more or less set up and forget about it, but as I hadn’t bought one previously… A sound indicator is good enough for me app or no app.

Appreciate the detailed response.

Hi. I’ve owned both of the models you mentioned I think. They are both mini towers and definitely provide audible feedback for any of the standard events like loss of power, return of power and even unusual fluctuation of current. Both of them also have Windows software available for interfacing the UPS with your PC, but don’t know about Mac or IOS/Android however. Its been a long time since I’ve used any of that software but the last time I did use it it was accessible. I usually wound up not using the software at all as I tend to usually keep things simple and all I really cared about was protection from frequent brownouts. The CyberPower I believe has a display on the front that displays pertinent information that might be useful for someone sighted. They are both really solid choices however.

Hello list,

So, because I’m a procrastinator, while I’ve been meaning to get one, I haven’t yet. Naturally, Southern California is going through a major heatwave and rolling blackouts are a real possibility. I hope to be better prepared next time… I’m looking to buy a UPS for my home office. There are enough review sites out there, but before I buy one, I was wondering if anyone is aware of an accessible model. Either out of the box or a smart device capability. I.E. iOS app or web interface of some sort. By out of the box, I mean even something that gives any sort of audible feedback.

I was think of the APC 1500VA UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector with AVR, Back-UPS Pro Uninterruptible Power Supply (BR1500G)

Or

CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS System, 1500VA/1000W, 12 Outlets, AVR, Mini Tower

Re: ISO an accessible UPS for a home office.

Anywhere from 50 or 60 bucks to thousands. Depends entirely on what you’re looking for and your setup.

The two models I linked to are a little over $200 for example though.

I tried that and it just gives the illusion that you are getting messages from lists, as far as I can tell. You do see your own messages when you send them to lists, but I got copies of every message I sent anywhere. Therefore, I conclude that you have a copy of every message sent to you, but not from the list. Something else sends them to you and you would receive them whether the message reaches the list or not.

Hi Marie,

This is exactly why I ditched Charter and went to Fastmail for all my email
groups, . It seems that Charter will throttle down your email if you
receive / send too much email, but I could never get Charter / Spectrum to
admit to this and someone else on this list posted something to the effect
this would happen after a certain number of emails per month. Well whatever
the problem with Charter is, I have absolutely zero problems with Fastmail.
Another problem I had with Charter was boucing email with Groups.io which is
something I have zero problems using Fastmail.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!

If you want, I can walk you through that as well as send you a automatic login link that way that you can go onto Jessie's settings or if you wish for me to do it for you, I could go off-line with you, and login to your Gmail and fix the problem for you if you would like. And I will by and if you don't feel comfortable with me doing it, if you want to give me your computer guys phone number that helps you out all the time, I can give him the steps and he can fix it for you if you would like. Because I know you've been going through a lot here lately.no means give anybody any of your information.

You have to pay for Fast Mail, but not with GMail. GMail works very well
and you can use it with e-mail programs. It may be that Fast Mail has
features some people may want but I don't think the typical e-mail user
would want them.

Hi Marie,

This is exactly why I ditched Charter and went to Fastmail for all my email
groups, . It seems that Charter will throttle down your email if you
receive / send too much email, but I could never get Charter / Spectrum to
admit to this and someone else on this list posted something to the effect
this would happen after a certain number of emails per month. Well whatever
the problem with Charter is, I have absolutely zero problems with Fastmail.
Another problem I had with Charter was boucing email with Groups.io which is
something I have zero problems using Fastmail.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!

I have a charter email account set up and I can send and receive messages
just fine except to or from Groups.io. Is there some conflict between the

ISO an accessible UPS for a home office.

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So, because I’m a procrastinator, while I’ve been meaning to get one, I haven’t yet. Naturally, Southern California is going through a major heatwave and rolling blackouts are a real possibility. I hope to be better prepared next time… I’m looking to buy a UPS for my home office. There are enough review sites out there, but before I buy one, I was wondering if anyone is aware of an accessible model. Either out of the box or a smart device capability. I.E. iOS app or web interface of some sort. By out of the box, I mean even something that gives any sort of audible feedback.

I was think of the APC 1500VA UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector with AVR, Back-UPS Pro Uninterruptible Power Supply (BR1500G)

Or

CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS System, 1500VA/1000W, 12 Outlets, AVR, Mini Tower

Hi,

 

so here is the deal, if you are simplly going to format the machine  &

reinstall it, you don't need to worry since the current machine & the

Now about getting your licence of the machine, Please grab any several

be good to go.

 

Please let me know if you can or cannot find the JAWS licence in this way.

Re: Samsung Galaxy A10e usability for totally blind

Carolyn Arnold
 

On an iPhone, there are choices that I use - like raise to
wake, shake to undo, and touch to wake; all of these, I
turned off. Then, I went to Accessibility, VoiceOver and
Audio and turned off or on, can not remember, but the
feature that does chatter and clicks while on a
conversation. For me, this is very satisfactory.

I have a great advantage with my hearing aids that any time
I'm in the room with others, I just tell Siri to turn on
Bluetooth and can do anything on my phone, and no one hears
anything. Then, I just tell her to turn Bluetooth off. Now,
I need my headset when talking to someone and performing
other tasks, so that I can leave my phone in my pocket. I
would take it for granted that anyone could have similar
choices with an Android phone.

Right on! With Google Assistant, she's constantly listening
in for her WAKE UP WORDS to be uttered. Older toys in
Androidville DO NOT HAVE a button to push; newer ones are
beginning to have them, but, in the case of Samsung, pushing
the said button triggers Bixby, a direct competitor to
Google Assistant. On newer Nokia toys though, the button
does trigger on Google Assistant if a user DOES NOT WISH to
invoke the WAKE UP words.
The Assistant button is separate from the Power button. On
Samsung toys, the Power button can be configured to HANG UP
a call. The Volume Up button can also be configured to
ANSWER A CALL thus obviating the need to keep searching for
an Answer button when a call punches through. Like the
iPhone, the Power button is a loan ranger on the right side
of a Samsung toy; on the left side are three buttons on
newer phones: Volume Up, Volume Down, and the Bixby buttons
in that order. Someone like me wishes that Samsung will
QUIT BEING A COPYCAT and just PUT ALL THE BUTTONS on one
side for easy reach especially when the toy is in a
protective case.

Also on newer toys, Samsung has the 3.5-inch jack to the
left of the charging port. This is awkward in my view. For
a giddy child like me who carries these toys in my pocket
daily, access to the 3.5-inch jack for use with a headset
becomes a painful inconvenience. I compensate for this by
using bluetooth headsets that support noise cancelling with
somewhere between 30-60 hours of talk time.

It is not and when I called the state to get it transferred to me they would not do it. Apparently I would have to go threw them when I need to get more SMA’s. so I will try calling freedom and see if I can get that activation code from them…

Hi.

 

I know you said your jaws was installed by the state, but is it registered to you? If so you should be able to call freedom scientific and arrange to get your authorization code. Unfortunately there is no way to transfer it. You could look under the jaws activation under help, but it will likely only display the first 7 characters of your code.

If the Android platform throws you a smile, and you'd like to return the
favour, you won't be disappointed with the S10E! It is a smaller version of
any of the S10 incarnations and, yes, there are quite a number of S10's out
there. The S10 is yesterday's wine by today's standards in Samsung land;
nonetheless, it still holds its place amongst the top similarly situated
Android toys, and the wine tastes even better pricewise!

If you currently have an iPhone, please note that there will be A LEARNING
CURVE as you get used to Android way of doing business; in that wise, you
may need more than AN OUNCE OF PATIENCE to get up and running.
Customisability is what makes Android shine in my view; I liken it to the
Windows OS! I can practiclly THROW ANYTHING I CHOOSE at My Shiny Android
toys and we don't have to skid off the running pad. For example, you can
have as many screen readers as you wish and switch amongst them; you can
also have as many TTS engines as you wish and change them as often as you so
desire. The S10E comes with the Voice Assistant; if this works for you,
voilá, no need to go tinkering with another. The Voice Assistant does have
some iOS-like gestures; this could make your entry into Androidville
somewhat less challenging!

Something worth noting: If Eloquence is your favorite and preferred TTS,
that's gone the way of THE DODO BIRD in Androidville; CodeFactory pulled it
and tossed it to the wind. Why? Well, it was almost selling for $19.99;
hmm, we refused to pay that much for a TTS especially when cheaper
alternatives cost much less--say for example, $3.99! Similarly, the KNFB
Reader FAILED IN ANDROID LAND 'cause we won't pay $100 for it. When we got
it, thanks to a Google subsidy, we paid $20! It HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED in
ages, but we don't care or worry too much because there are tons of other
apps that have since filled in the missing link; so, we don't miss the KNFB
Reader in Androidville. Back to Eloquence for a moment: It is a 32Bit TTS
engine; Google's requiring that apps be 64Bit compliant, CodeFactory DOES
NOT WISH to recompile Eloquence for this purpose in Androidville, and so,
like Window-Eyes, Eloquence is dead in Androidville! That said, you can
still GAIN ACCESS to its .APK if you had purchased it before its demise.

Anyhow, if the S10E FITS SNUGLY in your beautiful hands, take it home, give
it some TLC and, any number of Androideans in this space will help you get
up and running with it. Good luck with the decision process, save one for
me under the Thanksgiving or Christmas tree and, when we can fly again, I'll
Santa down to come grab it! All the best.

Try holding the FN key and pressing escape. If this doesn't work, try

Messages from others have discussed that question. I haven't tried to
remember the ways in which it could be done that may be accessible to blind
users. If I need to at some point, I should easily be able to find
information in the archives. There is a command that might work, or there

That's likely because you have to have the fn keys not function when the fn
key is not depressed. At least that's why I think this is happening, but
this qquestion may give us help in determining if that is the problem. Does
alt f4 work properly to close programs? I'm not sure what other function
keys and commands may not work properly now. But failure of alt f4 to close
programs is a strong indicator, when combined with what you are asking
about, that this is a fn key problem.

Hi List, I recently bought a Lenovo Windows 10 laptop and loaded Jaws 2020
on it.



I was surprised to find that when I press Insert plus F4 on its keyboard, it
goes to a print command. However, when I issue that command from an attached
desk top keyboard it does unload Jaws as it should.



Have any of you experienced this?
