You say you have the right company.  I suspect you are just typing the name of the company.  You don't do that.  See this page and you will see an example of how to send a text using your computer and you will see names for many carriers.

Navigating the Newer Versions of CCleaner with Jaws, Steps

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below are some steps I typed up for navigating the newer versions of CCleaner with JAWS.  Since CCleaner and JAWS works fine with the, Windows tab, scan then the navigation starts getting weird, the steps below start after scanning the Windows tab.
Note:  These may not be exact but, are very close and should get you by.
1. After you run a scan of the Windows tab, you can use your finger gymnastics in 2 ways to scan the Applications tab.
A. After the Windows tab scan is finished tab until you come to the Windows tab again, now switch to the, Touch cursor, Shift + Numpad Plus, now right
arrow and then left arrow to highlight the Apllication tab and press enter to select it.  Turn off the Touch cursor by tapping the Numpad Plus key twice
quickly.  Press, Alt + R, to start the scan.
B. After the Windows tab scan is finished switch to the Touch cursor, left arrow several times to the Applications tab and press enter to select.  Now,
turn the Touch cursor off and press, Alt + R, to scan.
Note: The Touch  cursor is mostly used to navigate after the Windows tab scan.
2. If you are scanning the Registry, after the Applications scan is completed press, Alt + G, to start the scan of the registry.
3. After the registry scan is completed, Shift + Tab to the list of found items, pay attention to how many items were found, you can arrow up & down this
list to uncheck any items you don't want removed or press, Control + A, to select all, tab to the delete selected items, or whatever it's called, and press
enter to start the cleaning.  You will get a dialogue asking if you wannt to save a copy of the registry before the cleaning so press, Alt + Y, to save,
press the spacebar on the confirmation dialogue now the registry cleaning process starts and it only takes a second or so.  After the cleaning is finished
now, if you route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor you can arrow up 1 time to hear how many items wer found and how many were cleaned.  For example, if
20 items were found but, you unchecked 5 of them you should hear, 15 / 20, meaning 15 of the 20 items were cleaned.  If you slected them all you should
hear, 20 / 20, meaning 20 of 20 items were cleaned.
Note: The copy of the saved registry file should be in your Documents folder.  This is a copy of the registry before it's cleaned so, if there's a problem
after the cleaning you can restore your registry with this saved file.
 
 
Take Care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Re: ThunderBird.

Hi Curtis,

 

Not sure why you sent me a private email concerning Thunderbird, as others on the list are more likely to know more about the program than i. my wife uses it because I had to set her up on it after some type of uncorrectable corruption occurred with Outlook that mulches her emails every time I try to install Outlook of any flavor on that computer. It’s something to do with the .PST file that even Microsoft couldn’t fix.

 

Anyway, I hope you find the answer you’re looking for on BT. I know TB is a powerful program, and for a free program to be as robust as this is unusual. It is certainly quite usable and the price is right.

ThunderBird.

Curtis Delzer
 

Hi. Is there a "blind thunderbird," as such list? There are nuances
which could apply best to such a list such as the ability to create
automatic filters for messages delivered to specific filters and sounds
for each, for example. I now use Becky! mail, but there are certain
"printed" characters which don't translate well, nor the HTML rendering
of messages.

Yes, the feature exists in version 2.1 and it is also included in version 3.
The feature works in 2.1. After you paste the url's you have to tab to destination formats combobox in the multiple downloads window and then to start downloading button.
The program will start downloading the url's one by one. Unfortunately because the clipboard is monitored it will also paste them in the url field from the main window but the program should ignore them .
In version 2.1 the url's are written to the downloads.list file in the Engine directory. and then downloaded.
The bug is fixed in version 3 because now the url's are directly taken from the multiple downloads window, checked for validity and then added to the downloads table.

Using JAWS 2019 and PMD version 3: On the menu bar, after pressing Enter on
a menu option nothing seems to happen, but if you start tabbing, you will
hear keyboard shortcuts for the relevant items. In PMD 2.1, I always
redirected converted files to my downloads folder. I tried to do it in
version 3. For some strange reason, when you reach the control to choose a
folder, the program closes. This happens no matter which way you reach this
option - in the main program window or in the options. The default download
location is a read-only field, so you have to press the Select button to
change the location. If you focus on the control choosing a folder, the
program is closed, so you have to write the folder path in manually.

Subject: [BlindTech] Pontes Media Downloader - version 3 released

Hi, everybody!
I've noticed some discussions here about Pontes Media Downloader and I just
want to let you all know that we've just released version 3 of the program.
The major technical difference is that version 3 has a javafx interface
instead of the older dot net interface.
Also it includes ffmpeg 4 for converting and, of course the latest version
of youtube-dl for downloading.
It comes with oracle java 8 included and accessibility features enabled
(tested with nvda and narator on windows).

I've tried to keep the same keyboard shortcuts as in version 2.1 There is
also a window that lists all the shortcuts (control k opens it) I've added a
downloads table in which you can manage individual downloads. It is possible
to download more than one file at a time.
Default setting is 3 downloads simultaneously.
The program will automatically detect a playlist now and will open a window
where you can choose the elements from the playlist that you want to
download. By default all items are checked.  You can check/uncheck an item
from the list with space All the checked items will be added to the
downloads table You can also view each download's log (control g) This is
useful if for some reason a file was not downloaded (usually the last line
of the log is the error)

The downside is that the installer is bigger (around 70 mb in windows) and
it takes more space on the hdd (around 250 mb mostly because of java and
ffmpeg) The major advantage is that the program is now cross-platform (there
are also mac and linux versions available).
The official webpage of the program is here
http://www.pontes.ro/en/scripts/#pmd

You can download the program from here:
Windows version (32 and 64 bit)
http://pontes.ro/ro/utile/instrumente/pmd/Pmd_install_v3.exe
Mac OsX version (64 bit)

Linux (Debian based, 64 bit)

utility) at

Re: Youtube Videos

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

To do an actual conversion, (if the -x doesn't get the format you want), you'll need to use either ffmpeg (fwhich is linked to in the documentation), or avconv, (an earlier version of ffmpeg) to do the conversion.  You'll also need to have the appropriate encoders on your machine, all of which is covered in the ffmpeg documentation which is posted at the site mentioned in the docs, ffmpeg.com or ffmpeg.org or something, too lazy to go look at the moment.

You'll find a program called YTDLUI (youtube download user interface) that will allow you to copy and paste youtube video urls into the edit box as many as you like (one per line) and then download those videos to your pc.  If you put -x in the parameters box, then it will grab all the audio formats as well, and depending on what format you're looking for, you may not need to do any converting at all, since the format you want may already be present.  I've gotten sometimes as many as 3 different audio formats with a video.  I generally delete the ones I don't want, or if none are the format I want, I use ffmpeg to do the conversion for me, and you can too.

I mention the ffmpeg program in the documentation with a link as to where to obtain it, to make things easier for folks.

to download. By default all items are checked. You can check/uncheck an
item from the list with space All the checked items will be added to the
downloads table
You can also view each download's log (control g) This is useful if for
some reason a file was not downloaded (usually the last line of the log
is the error)

The downside is that the installer is bigger (around 70 mb in windows)
and it takes more space on the hdd (around 250 mb mostly because of java
and ffmpeg)
The major advantage is that the program is now cross-platform (there are
also mac and linux versions available).
The official webpage of the program is here
http://www.pontes.ro/en/scripts/#pmd

You can download the program from here:
Windows version (32 and 64 bit)
http://pontes.ro/ro/utile/instrumente/pmd/Pmd_install_v3.exe
Mac OsX version (64 bit)
http://pontes.ro/ro/utile/instrumente/pmd/Pmd_v3_osx.zip
Linux (Debian based, 64 bit)
http://pontes.ro/ro/utile/instrumente/pmd/pmd_3.0.2-190302_amd64.deb

Version 2.1 will remain available (for those who just need a simpler
utility) at
http://pontes.ro/ro/utile/instrumente/pontes_media_downloader_install_2_1.exe




Pontes Media Downloader is just a friendly interface for youtube-dl - a
wonderful command line utility that does all the complicated media
extraction.
Have fun using Pontes Media Downloader!

Re: Pontes Media Downloader - version 3 released

Mario
 

Nelu, using 2.1, is it possible to create a list of acceptable URLS (say
using Notepad), start PMD, open the download Multiple Clips dialog,
paste the list of gathered URLs, and start the download/conversion process?
I ask because I couldn't figure out any steps on how to get PMD to
download/convert a batch of videos without having to do each video one
by one, which is tedious.

. also, I noticed that the first URL was downloaded/converted, but the
second URL listed failed to download. I then inserted a blank line
between the first and second URL and tried again to download, but PMD
failed right after the second URL started to download.

I also discovered the included help to be not very useful since it was
somewhat vague and lacked an example to follow. I hope version 3 is not
too buggy since it is a new version.

Subject: [BlindTech] Pontes Media Downloader - version 3 released

Hi, everybody!
I've noticed some discussions here about Pontes Media Downloader and I
just want to let you all know that we've just released version 3 of the
program.
The major technical difference is that version 3 has a javafx interface
instead of the older dot net interface.
Also it includes ffmpeg 4 for converting and, of course the latest
version of youtube-dl for downloading.
It comes with oracle java 8 included and accessibility features enabled
(tested with nvda and narator on windows).

I've tried to keep the same keyboard shortcuts as in version 2.1 There
is also a window that lists all the shortcuts (control k opens it)
I've added a downloads table in which you can manage individual
downloads. It is possible to download more than one file at a time.
Default setting is 3 downloads simultaneously.
The program will automatically detect a playlist now and will open a
window where you can choose the elements from the playlist that you want
to download. By default all items are checked.  You can check/uncheck an
item from the list with space All the checked items will be added to the
downloads table
You can also view each download's log (control g) This is useful if for
some reason a file was not downloaded (usually the last line of the log
is the error)

The downside is that the installer is bigger (around 70 mb in windows)
and it takes more space on the hdd (around 250 mb mostly because of java
and ffmpeg)
