Re: Another Winamp Question

Hey Glenn.

 

It is called a plug-in, but it’s not something you install. Winamp comes with a load of plugins that are already running by default. It needs some of these to even function/play sound through your audio hardware. If you go to plugins in the preferences, you can configure, or uninstall, or replace, any of the existent plugins. Without installing anything, you will already see several there in the list. One of those is the one for portable devices.

I did not install any plugins and I get this when I have something plugged into my computer.

I would like to get rid of this annoyance as well, although I'm able to close the message.

It would be nice if there was a checkbox that says

don't prompt for this in the future

like some prompts have.

That is exactly what I meant though. I haven’t seen this prompt/message in years, and I have multiple USB mass storage devices that I plug in and unplug every day. I seem to remember being able to dispense with the message 8before* I got rid of the plugin, but now, yeah, I’m not toally sure. I disposed of two or three plugins because I noticed that Winamp suddenly became slow to load; this was one of them that is easy to sacrifice, since there’s no reason Winamp needs to know or care what kind of storage device you are using.

Hi Jean,

 

No, that’s not what I meant.

 

Winamp has a portable device detection plug-in that recognizes when the computer is connected to a USB device.  The problem is that Winamp doesn’t distinguish between external drives, USB sticks or other devices, and so it brings up the dialog box for every thing that’s plugged into the USB port, though it doesn’t seem to think my printer is a media device.  LOL.

Strange, I do vaguely remember this message but don’t recall having accessibility issues with it. It was annoying though. Winamp does not need a plugin to access a USB drive/stick/whatever as this is comletely operating system-dependent, normally.

So, I uninstalled the plugin quite some time back, I think.

Hi Dennis,

 

I am using 5.66 and I’ve not found a way to turn this feature off and I’ve been using it since forever.  Smiles.

 

I don’t know what the new version is like, so I can’t say if it does the same thing or not.

Hi Tom,

 

First I don't use Winamp so my suggestions are only that.  Have you tried pressing, Alt + Y, for yes, or pressing, Alt + N, for no?  Also you could try tabbing to see if you can highlight the Yes and No buttons or try the Touch Cursor to see if you can sneak up on those rascals.

Hello, everyone.

 

Within the past few wekes, whenever I try to play an audio file from my external hard drive with Winamp, I get a message that says something like:  “Winamp has detected a an external drive;  do you want Winamp to access  this drive?”.

 

There is a yes/no button, but I can’t get to it.

 

I have tried enter, and the space bar.  I also have tried rooting the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor, but have had no luck.

 

Occasionally, after trying, I can get the message to play, but then I get an error message about reporting the problem to Winamp.

 

And, once I get these messages, the only way I can get rid of them is to completely shut down and re-boot my computer.

 

Has anyone experienced this issue?  If so, how can I respond, or better yet, how can I turn this anoying notification off?

 

I’m using windows 10 version 1809 with the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks!

What I mean is Jaws does not read out any message whether any additional programme / plugin is needed to play the content. Porsche has outsourced tech support which is terrible, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, you missed good old reliable Eudora. I've been using it since Windows 95 all the way to Windows 10. Its filters are robust, its menus are totally accessible and it works with JAWS. since Qualcom is no longer maintaining Eudora, the last version, 7.1.9, can be downloaded for free and used in paid mode, so that you get no ads and all features are available.

It's great that WLM is working for many of you in Windows 10. But just keep in mind that it could suddenly stop working without warning following a future feature update to Windows 10.?? Enjoy it while you can.?? That is another reason why I switched to Thunderbird.?? If Windows 10 changes. TB will be updated to continue to work with it.?? There is no such guarantee with WLM because it is no longer supported, and in fact, you can no longer even access the MS Live Essentials web site to download it.

I like WLM:
1. Because you can set up message rules and not have everything in your in box.
2. You also can set up sub mailboxes and still have mail go into the mailboxes they're suppose to go in even closed off.
3. The only issue that I'm having with WLM is that it will ship my tag line AKA Signature when I write a letter, but it won't ship it if I ctrl r return to sender, or fw forward a letter.
Yes I have don't send signature with fw or ctrl r is turned off or unchecked, and I do have send signature with all mail checked or turned on.
So, go figure out why I'm having the small issues with WLM.
I've tried the MS mail app twice, the first time I had to roll the clock back, the second time I had them uninstall the program.
I've tried out look and will stay with WLM for now.

Well I finally gave up on wlm and am converting to Thunderbird. There are a few problems with Thunderbird that I will address in another email. The transition was very easy. It brought all of my email and sub folders over and automatically set up Comcast account . For the most I am pleasantly pleased some of the problems are trying to use old wlm key combos. I guess after 10 years these habits are hard to break.--

Windows 10 pro and online video playback with Jaws

HSG Director
 

Greetings

So I can play online media on my HP Envy laptop running Windows 10 pro with Jaws 2019 either in Firefox or Google Chrome. However: I am unable to play the same on my Porsche Design Book1 running exactly the same OS and Jaws version save playing YouTube content. Jaws just remains silent when I press enter, do I need to install some sort of a plugin on the Porsche?


Many Thanks

Re: Copying online text

Victor Gouveia <victor.gouveia@...>
 

Have you checked your settings to make sure you’re copying from the virtual cursor and bit on screen highlight?
 
This setting keeps getting shut off on me sometimes and I have to switch it back.
 
I just haven’t bothered calling FS about it since it’s a minor thing for me.
 
Open up a webpage, then press insert+V.  In the search field type copy and arrow down to select and copy from virtual cursor, though in your case it may say select and copy from on-screen highlight.
 
To change the setting, press your spacebar.  It cycles through the two settings.
 
Good luck.

Maybe, if the placemarker method does not work, you can save the page as text if it will let you then do it.

 

Then, copy and paste your material.

The way that usually works for me is to place a temporary place mark with windows control K and arrow to the end of the text and do insert + space and then press the letter M.

That selects it, and then you can copy it.

Note, you can put the mark at the end arrow to the beginning to, the main thing is that your cursor is at one end and the place mark is at the other.

I have done this when finding the spot again would be a pain, and I'm already at the end and it would be easier to backtrack to the beginning after leaving the marker.

Until recently I could almost always select a piece of text on the web and paste it into a document but recently this isn’t always the case, for example, I wanted to paste the details of a book I am reading into an e-mail to share with a friend but Amazon wouldn’t let me do this.

Is there a work-around?

Re: Copying online text

Alison,

If Glenn’s suggestion doesn’t work in this instance, try going to JAWS quick setting with JAWS key+v, then arrowing down to the “Select and copy” option. If it doesn’t say “from the virtual cursor,” press the spacebar until it does. Tab to Okay and press the spacebar again.

Hi Jennie,
 
Below are steps for both Windows 7 and 10.  There are other ways, but these will getter done.
Windows 7:
1. Press the Windows key to open the Start menu.
2. Navigate to, Submenu Programs or All Programs, and press enter.
3. Navigate to, Microsoft Office, and press enter or right arrow to open.
4. Navigate down the list to,  Microsoft Word, and press the, application key, or, Shift + F10, to open the context menu.
5. Navigate to, SendTo, press enter, down arrow to, Desktop create shortcut, and press enter.  You'll now have a, Word, shortcut icon on the desktop.
 
Windows 10:
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue, and type in what is below, read character by character, to make sure you type it correctly and press enter.
shell:appsfolder
2. Type the letters, w o, to take you to Word.
3. Press the, applications key, or, Shift + F10, to open the context menu.
4. Up or Down arro to, Create shortcut, and press enter.  You'll get a dialogue stating that a shortcut can't be created here, and would you like to create a shortcut on the desktop instead?  Press the spacebar on the Yes button and wham bam your Word shortcut icon will be on the desktop.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.
