Re: deleting contact

Ali Benmerzouga
 

Mona,

Thanks for asking the question. I was thinking about how to delete an email contact while receiving your email through this List.

 

I have the same specifications as yours – JAWS 2018, W10 and Outlook.

 

Dear JAWS Experts, thanks for helping us in advance.

Hi, when he gets the message about making it the default browser if he tabs round this box is there a box saying don’t ask me again? Normally there is so you tick this box, then say no and it shouldn’t come up again.

 

For some reason I can’t find chrome on my computer so can’t test it for you.

windows 10 export / import settings

Marvin Hunkin <neilmarvin@...>
 

Hi. apart from doing the group policy editor. Is there a utility. Which could export to a csv or a xhml file. If moving to a new laptop. So then don’t have to spend weeks having to install all my 50 or over 100 programs, programming projects. Then opening the project in visual studio, then building, etc. is there a utlity that you know of. If any one has had to then purchase a new computer and set it up. Thinking about maybe purchasing a new Lenovo laptop and a external drive. My machine is almost 5 years old. Purchase in July 2014. And do I need a dvd drive, do most laptops don’t come with a dvd drive any more. So what if I need to install jaws from a dvd.

Marvin.

Ps: also is there a way to set my machine back to windows 7 from windows 10. Apart and not sure if I have the backup disks and also how to transfer ownership say to a family member like my sister.

Thanks.

Re: what laptops to look for

Tyler Wood <tcwood12@...>
 

Hi,

8 gb of ram is plenty for most people these days. Anything above 4 is recommended. If you want your computer to be fully future proof then by all means go for 16 gb of ram if you can afford it, since that just means your machine will be able to run demanding apps for longer. Be sure to get the amount of ram you want as a lot of manufacturers solder the ram these days so it is not user replaceable.


An i5 processor is also plenty, especially if it's the 8th generation, as you still get 4 cores and 8 threads. It will also run cooler and quieter in a lot of cases because it doesn't have the same clock speed - and in quite a few key areas can actually be faster than the i7, despite being, in some cases, hundreds of dollars cheaper. This wasn't always the case but Intel really dropped the ball with their latest processors in my opinion.


Regarding hard drive - solid state all the way here. It's incredibly fast, smooth and you'll never go back to a mechanical spinning hard drive. I'm not sure about the Australian market however the Dell Inspiron, hp Specter, and Lenovo Yoga series are all given high praise by most folks. Asus Zenbooks are also very nice looking and of course there is the Microsoft surface lineup which doesn't have the junk like Nortin or Mcafee installed. The dell xps series has really great sound due to waves max sound but that also means screen readers sound horrible and the beginning of words get cut off. I'm not sure about hp and other brands.


hope that helps.

You may find that to get the numberpad on a laptop you may have to be at the top or a bit higher of your price range.

16 GB of RaM will be plenty.  8 is not enough with Jaws and Windows 10 in my opinion.

You want the I7 processor.

 

I think you are fine to go with Acer, Lanovo or Dell.  I don’t know the Australian market of course.

Hi, what laptops to look for in Australia. Are ssd’s more expensive and what’s the biggest ssd I could get and not have to blow a lot of money. Well looking probably for a Lenovo. Toshiba does not make any consumer laptops or sells them any more. Only business machines which start from about $2,200 and can go all the way up to $5,000. And my brother purchased a acer for about $2,000, he has a business and also a gamer. So would be looking for the fast chipset, best audio, screen does not matter, as totally blind, do have 8 gb, but seems to struggle, and would like 16 or 32 gb, and a 1 tb hard disk, probably cannot do that for a ssd, and maybe lookin at about $1,000 or $1200.

Re: Good Backup Software

 

I like the Macrium Reflect softward for making image backups of my Windows 7 system. The software is accessible with Fusion 2019 and allows me to backup my entire drive image to an external USB drive. Although I'm running an older version 6.x of the software, you can download version 7.x of Macrium Reflect from the following website:

 

https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree

 

I don't think the free edition will allow you to make differential backups but I always make a full backup of my system anyway so this isn't a problem for me. I like that Macrium lets you create a boot CD/DVD so that if your hard disk ever crashes, you can simply boot from the recovery CD, restore your backup image from your USB drive to a new hard disk, and then be back in business. Macrium also allows you to analyze your image backup as another drive letter on your system to selectively restore files as opposed to doing a full restore. I've used the program for a couple of years now and have not had any problems with it. I have fully restored a backup image using it but did so as a result of software problems with my system, not as the result of a hard disk crash.

I am not sure if you can restore windows 7 for example if created in win 10 respective using win 10 restoring tool.
Actually you can boot by win 10 from DVD or Pendrive and you will have speak system.

Actually, windows has a good software backup package. You just need to go to the command prompt and type the following:

wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:E: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet

where the backup target is the destination of where you want the backup to be and the included target is what you are backing up. You should be in an admin account for this. Thanks!

Hi Mona,
Typically, but not always, it is under view settings.
So I would try:
alt + V
arrow down to sort
right arrow into that, and down arrow to either ascending or descending, and press enter on the one that is not checked.
HTH.

As the subject line says, I need to know how to get my email so that is oldest on top and the newest at the bottom.  Tried alt v, rs and it use to do it but not any more.  Maybe I’ve tweeked something wrong in trying to experiment.

 

Hope I posed this question in the right group.

It's too intrusive, too many things to turn off.
I don't want to get into the whole app store concept with Windows.
Linux would be best for avoiding all of this.

what do you have against windows10? and whatever you do just stay away from windows8. windows10 works great. it is like a combination of windows xp and windows7. i really like the windows10 settings application because it reminds me of the old windows xp control panel layout kind of.

Microsoft Accessibility workshops

Van Lant, Robin
 

All,

Pardon me if this has already been shared and I missed it.  A coworker shared a pdf flier with me today on the first few Microsoft Accessibility workshops for 2019.  I have not attended one of these yet, but do plan to pick one or check out the archives.  I’m pasting the text of the flier below, since I don’t think the list accepts attachments.

Re: EasyWorship Program - Is It JAWS-Friendly

My church can register me as a user under their licence if, after trying out the demo, it proves user-friendly.

Michelle and Christopher:

I, as is my habit, called the number on their website and found out the following:

There is a purchase option for a "campus license" ($500.00 US currency), or a subscription. Now, the subscription price is based on the size of the congregation.
Second, regarding accessibility, the individual I spoke with had no knowledge of how accessible it is with JAWS. However, there is a demo that you could download at a charge which is free to download; it has no expiration date, but there is a "watermark" on the software, and to get rid of ityou would need to purchase it.

Sorry but that is all of the pertinent information I found out.
Happy New Year.

Subject: [jaws-users] EasyWorship Program - Is It JAWS-Friendly

Happy new year everybody! Hope you all had a good one.

I was wondering if any JAWS users have come into contact with a program called EasyWorship. It's a program my church is using to access lyrics for church services and I believe you can also access recordings of the songs as well. I think the lyrics are, or can be translated into, powerpoints or into Word.

As I'm not confident with checking out a new program with no prior knowledge of its interface, I thought I'd ask on this list first if anyone else has had success using this program. I've been told that you can use keyboard shortcuts to control it, but I'm not sure whether this is for everything or not. It certainly would be an invaluable source of worship material for me, if it is accessible. I've also been advised that, if it's accessible, the church can register me as a user, so I won't have to pay for it.

Would really appreciate any helpful feedback.

Cheers!

Michele





Re: list memo

 

Hello David:

 

It does serve a purpose indeed!  It is the list to go-to for questions about Jaws, thanks for all that good work.

Well it looks like we are embarking on the 14th year of running this list. For the most part things have gone well and the guys are still interested in keeping this thing going.

 

It seems that it does serve a purpose so we will plow on ahead and give 2019 a shot. Besides we don't want anymore death threats like what happened when we shutdown the blind computing list some years ago.

 

No I am not making that up, but the credibility of the person was sadly lacking to be sure. No I don't recall who it was, or care for that matter.

 

Never the less until the call of retirement becomes too strong to ignore things will proceed with business as usual.
