Hi Carlos,
Are you looking at a specific solid state drive. I have been thinking of
getting one as my main drive and would love opinions or recommendations.

Hello Jessica,
I don't have Windows 10 installed at the moment so I'm afraid I can't
offer much direct assistance. There seem to be quite a few articles,
but unfortunately most of them are not written with an accessible
point of view in mind. You can try this one and see if it helps.

Hi

Hi Everyone,
I'm one of the new guys and am wondering if we have any windows 10

what I'm particularly wanting to know is can you choose your player
of choice to be used instead of that groove music thing? If so,
please tell me how I do this.

Hi TerriLynne,
Indeed I have been specifically looking at this Samsung model.
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-256GB-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-7KE256BW/dp/B00LMXBOP4/ref=pd_cp_147_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0S2WRQ827QVRNPXAPGNE
It is the 256 GB addition which is currently selling for $138.00, but it is available in different sizes. You can purchase the 128 GB addition for $92.49. It is the first solid state drive based on 3D VNAND flash which means in part that it has greater endurance for long term storage compared to older designs. It also boasts low power consumption and better read/write speeds than most other drives in this category. Blah blah blah, and so on and so on LOL.

At least for me yes since I don't have many large applications installed and I store all of my data on a separate drive, but your mileage will vary if you have either a lot of software or many large applications installed.

For the record, I currently have a 128 GB SSD and about 48 GB free so my Windows installation is fairly minimal compared to some.

Hello Jessica,
I don't have Windows 10 installed at the moment so I'm afraid I can't
offer much direct assistance. There seem to be quite a few articles,
but unfortunately most of them are not written with an accessible
point of view in mind. You can try this one and see if it helps.

Hi
Can someone please help me set up Cortana?
How can I do this?
I'm using the latest version of NVDA.

Hi Bill,
First, welcome to the list.
To select a different player to be your default player, follow
these
steps:
1. Press Windows+I to open Settings.
2. From Settings, navigate to System/Default apps and press ENTER..
3. Press TAB until you land on music. Press SPACE, then use TAB to
select the player you want and press ENTER. Do this for the video app.
Regarding opinions and other Windows 10 goodies, what would you
like to know? In terms of system security and privacy, it depends
(some say it's good, while others say it's a bad thing). Regarding
accessibility, I can testify that it is a work in progress
(nowadays I'm investigating accessibility of various so-called
universal Windows
apps with NVDA).
In regards to screen reader, I'm the resident NVDA developer here
so I can tell you how NVDA does things with Windows 10, and we do
have expert screen reader users (like Gene asner and Carlos) who
can tell you about how their screen readers work with Windows 10.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi Everyone,
I'm one of the new guys and am wondering if we have any windows 10
users here.
what I'm particularly wanting to know is can you choose your player
of choice to be used instead of that groove music thing? If so,
please tell me how I do this.

Um yes. The 2 TB addition of this particular model is selling for $923.94, but there are less expensive models in the $400 to $600 range.

Hi TerriLynne,
Indeed I have been specifically looking at this Samsung model.

OP4/ref=pd_cp_147_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0S2WRQ827QVRNPXAPGNE
It is the 256 GB addition which is currently selling for $138.00, but it is
available in different sizes. You can purchase the 128 GB addition for
$92.49. It is the first solid state drive based on 3D VNAND flash which
means in part that it has greater endurance for long term storage compared
to older designs. It also boasts low power consumption and better
read/write speeds than most other drives in this category. Blah blah blah,
and so on and so on LOL.

Hi. When I got my second SSD just over 2 years ago (the first got fried in
a lightning strike on my house) the largest then was 500gig but they wanted
silly money for it so I got a 256gig with the fastest read and fastest write
they had. I really like the SSD because the boot time is only 20-25
seconds, and that is with a couple of external drives connected. Walter.

It is the 256 GB addition which is currently selling for $138.00, but it is
available in different sizes. You can purchase the 128 GB addition for
$92.49. It is the first solid state drive based on 3D VNAND flash which
means in part that it has greater endurance for long term storage compared
to older designs. It also boasts low power consumption and better
read/write speeds than most other drives in this category. Blah blah blah,

I'm not quite sure what differences you want to have explained. Solid state drives use flash memory and have no moving parts unlike all other conventional/mechanical drives whether they are portable or not.

Hi TerriLynne,
Indeed I have been specifically looking at this Samsung model.
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-256GB-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-7KE256BW/dp/B00LMXB
OP4/ref=pd_cp_147_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0S2WRQ827QVRNPXAPGNE
It is the 256 GB addition which is currently selling for $138.00, but it is
available in different sizes. You can purchase the 128 GB addition for
$92.49. It is the first solid state drive based on 3D VNAND flash which
means in part that it has greater endurance for long term storage compared
to older designs. It also boasts low power consumption and better
read/write speeds than most other drives in this category. Blah blah blah,
and so on and so on LOL.

Hi Carlos,
Are you looking at a specific solid state drive. I have been thinking
of getting one as my main drive and would love opinions or
recommendations.

Next is purchasing a new solid state drive that I've been looking at
so I can set it up in a dual boot configuration. For my own personal
use I don't really care for 10, but setting it up in a dual boot
configuration will make it easier to assist others on the list who are
running it.

About Windows 10, I can say coming from XP, that I think it's OK.

Best from,

Hello Jessica,
I don't have Windows 10 installed at the moment so I'm afraid I can't
offer much direct assistance. There seem to be quite a few articles,
but unfortunately most of them are not written with an accessible
point of view in mind. You can try this one and see if it helps.

Hi
Can someone please help me set up Cortana?
How can I do this?
I'm using the latest version of NVDA.

Hi Bill,
First, welcome to the list.
To select a different player to be your default player, follow
these
steps:
1. Press Windows+I to open Settings.
2. From Settings, navigate to System/Default apps and press ENTER..
3. Press TAB until you land on music. Press SPACE, then use TAB to
select the player you want and press ENTER. Do this for the video app.
Regarding opinions and other Windows 10 goodies, what would you
like to know? In terms of system security and privacy, it depends
(some say it's good, while others say it's a bad thing). Regarding
accessibility, I can testify that it is a work in progress
(nowadays I'm investigating accessibility of various so-called
universal Windows
apps with NVDA).
In regards to screen reader, I'm the resident NVDA developer here
so I can tell you how NVDA does things with Windows 10, and we do
have expert screen reader users (like Gene asner and Carlos) who
can tell you about how their screen readers work with Windows 10.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi Everyone,
I'm one of the new guys and am wondering if we have any windows 10
users here.
what I'm particularly wanting to know is can you choose your player
of choice to be used instead of that groove music thing? If so,
please tell me how I do this.
many thanks,

I'm not quite sure what differences you want to have explained. Solid state drives use flash memory and have no moving parts unlike all other conventional/mechanical drives whether they are portable or not.
A solid state drive is basically just a big memory stick. A mechanical drive such as we are used to uses spinning platters and magnets.
A solid state drive will die without warning, so be careful. One day it's working fine, the next it just quits. Unless they have developed some sort of new diagnostic tool to watch them.
When I tried an SSD I noticed no appreciable difference; it was bsically a big waste of money. Might be that my board is just ill-equipped to handle it though.

Newer models like the first one I posted are much more durable. To take full advantage of SSD speeds, your motherboard must have SATA III controllers. If it does then you will definitely notice the difference.

Oh that explaiins all so I probably will get a magnetic spinning platters drive if it's a TB, but I will try and find a deal that's all.
