I believe you meant 8Gigs below regarding your memory and the stopping and starting may be due to WiFi? Are you using WiFi? Or is your machine hardwired?

 

It wouldn’t play fine though using repeat for these reasons if they were actually causing the issue which it does not seem so based on that fact.

 

I guess use the repeat option until it gets figured/solved.

Try the following:
1. Press, Insert + 6, on the number row above the main keyboard to open the Settings Center, now press, control, shift , + D, to open the
Settings Center Default All Applications.
 
2. Down arrow to, Speech Verbosity closed, right arrow to open.  Down arrow 1 time to hear what Verbosity Level you're running.
 
3. Down arrow to, Configure Verbosity Levels closed, right arrow to open.
 
4. Down arrow to the level you're running, Beginner..., and press the spacebar to open.  Note, do not press enter because if you press enter Settings Center
will think you're done and close, so use the spacebar.
 
5. You're now in a list of options, so down arrow to, Position information, press the spacebar to uncheck this.
 
6. Tab to, Okay, press the spacebar, again tab to, Okay, and press enter to save your change and close the Settings Center.

Hello,

When I’m navigating File Explorer in Windows 10, JAWS reads the
highlighted item and then gives me the number in its list. For
example, ABC File, 3 of 10. How can I get it to just read the item,
minus the sequential number? Thanks in advance.

Re: File Explorer

Steven Johnson <saxmonger@...>
 

On my computer, I opened up file explorer. Then, I hit insert-V and tabbed once to the tree view of settings. Mine landed on touch cursor options open. I hit left arrow once to close that, arrowed down once to general, hit right arrow to open general. Arrow to the right once to verbosity which says intermediate. Hit space bar until it says advanced, then tab to okay and hit enter. I'm sure that someone will have a better idea, but this worked for me.

I'm not sure if anyone can say without more information. What sorts
of download speeds are you getting in general? Streaming doesn't
require a fast computer or a lot of memory and you have much more than
is necessary. My guess is that the stream is playing well the second
time because either some sort of caching is going on, information is
being temporarily saved from the first stream, or the file is being
temporarily saved on your computer.

It is important to know your general download speed in trying to
figure out the problem.

Opening newer Excel files

Howard Traxler
 

Hi all, I am necessarily using an older version of MS Office (2003) with, of course, an older version of Excel.  A friend sent me an Excel file with an .xlsx extension.  Wondering if there's a program that will let me open this newer excel file?  Maybe even a conversion program that'll let me convert it back to an older version?

Thanks.

Re: list and comparrison of different amazon speakers

Hello John & Ashley
Thanks for your responses. Do you know if one would be able to stream from an Apple device to the Fire Stick? I notice there is a fire stick remote app for iPhone. I wonder if one would be able to control all the functions of the fire stick with that app?

Hi,
This isn't a list, but I think if it's streaming you want, you should go with the fire stick.
it's able to stream audio from Amazon music, just like an echo, and it can also stream video content from Prime Video, NetFlix, Hulu and youtube among others.
HTH,
John.
