That is the version I'm using.
I have only used the GUI version, I did not know that they had a CLI version.

It offers a backup of the registry, so if something causes problems, you can restore it.

Hi okay if you run this?

Now if you have purchased and and run it how do you know what you need to keep and don't need to keep?

I mean what can you safely delete and keep like if you know longer need windows live mail for example.

How then to you using this program make sure that you got rid of all of what goes along with that program?

And not other stuff that you need for your machine to run?

Hi,

I like Chrome, but I uninstalled it because I kept getting these spam-like popup, and no matter what settings I changed, they kept coming.

I would have to go into task manager to close all instances of it to get the popup to stop.

Anyway, I downloaded the installer again and it won't install.

I go into task manager and it says google chrome updater

I then close it and try again.

I downloaded the stand alone copy, and the same story.

Any ideas why it freezes and will not install?

A Question about chrome settings

Rebecca Lineberger
 

I was trying to help a friend set up her chrome.

In the tutorial from a list member, It said:

Next Important heading:

On Start up.

Here is where you put in your URL that you want to show as soon as you start Chrome.

There are three radio buttons to pick from, but I chose to open with a specific page or pages, which is the third radio button.

Under this, you can type in the URL of the web site that you want to open when you start Chrome.

 

We chose the third button but could not figure out how to enter a web address.

Underneath my checkboxes is the address for google, but JAWS does not list that as being in an edit box.

I set Chrome up so long ago that I can’t remember what I did.

We experimented with the options that followed, more actions, add a new page and use current page, I think it said.  She saw no edit box.

When I google, I find the following directions:

• Open Chrome.

• Click the overflow icon that looks like three vertical dots in the upper right corner.

• Click to open the Settings menu.

• Scroll down and click on Advanced Settings.

• Select Open a specific page or set of pages under On Startup.

• Select Set pages.

list end

Obviously as a keyboard user, I can’t get to that overflow icon as they called it with JAWS and this opens a menu of options not available from the settings menu from the alt key menu.

What are we missing?

Thanks.

Rebecca

Re: A Question about chrome settings

My solution is to go to the Google chrome icon on the desktop, and press alt + enter
On the first field, the target, press the end key, and then a space.
Then paste in the URL you want to open.
Shift tab to apply and space bar, and then shift tab to okay or close and enter.
This works for FF too, and maybe IE.

Re: A Question about chrome settings

Adrian Spratt
 

Rebecca,

 

I just went through the process. I’ll try to give you a step-by-step.

 

Be sure to close Chrome, then reopen it. Otherwise the setting you need might not appear.

Go to settings.

Press h until you land on “At Startup.”

Here you will arrow down through three checkboxes. The one you want is the third, “Open a specific page or set of pages.”

Tab to “Add a new page.”

Google assumes you may want more than one page to open at startup, hence this seemingly irrelevant wording.  Even if you want only one page to open at startup, select this option.

The edit box you want will appear. I had to press enter to go into forms mode, then I typed the URL.

Tab until you find the appropriate close-out option. I don’t recall its name.

Re: File association

Adrian Spratt
 

In Windows 7, the file association process was handled essentially with two columns, one of applications, the other of file types. I could, for example, select Window Media Player in the first column, then turning to the second, use first-letter navigation (beginning with a period) to locate a file type I wanted that application to open.

 

In Windows 10, as Mike B explains in a post I’ve copied below, you select a general category, such as email or video, and choose an application to handle that entire genre.

 

But what if I want Windows Media Player to handle some audio file types but VLC some other audio file types? It looks like the only way to do this is to select “Choose default app by file types.” Clicking on this link takes me to an interminable list of file types listed by button so that I must tab three thousand times to get, for example, to .WAV.

 

Is there a more efficient method available to screenreader users?

How to rip CDs with VLC

Adrian Spratt
 

I’m hoping someone can give me step-by-step instructions for how to rip a CD with VLC media player. I’ve tried intuition and Google, but I’m getting nowhere. I know to start with control-r, and I also know to select disc. I know that VLC recognizes the CD I have in that drive. However, I can’t get any results. One time I accidentally recorded two tracks, but even though they were somehow saved as .WAV files and VLC is my default .WAV app, there’s no sound. By contrast, when I just play the CD with VLC, the sound is fine.

 

I’ll mention that I have Windows Media player set to rip CDs, but I close that program when I want VLC to do the job. Could it be interfering anyway?

 

Thanks for any instructions or tips.

Re: File association

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 


Hi Adrian,
 
Try the following:
Okay, I found that you can fast forward through the, Choose default apps by file type link, if you turn Key Repeat on. 
1. To do this, after the file types list is loaded up open the Settings Center with, Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, and if you get a new configuration message select the, Okay, option and press the spacebar.  Arrow down to, User closed, and right arrow to open.
 
2. Down arrow to, Key Repeat not checked, and press the spacebar to check this.
 
3. Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.  Now if you hold the Tab key down it will fast forward through this long list of file types.
It's funny listening to Jaws fast forward through this long files type list because it sounds like fast forwarding a cassette tape.  LOL

Re: A Question about chrome settings

Rebecca Lineberger
 

Hi Mike,

I sent this off-list to someone else who kindly replied with the same suggestion.

My friend told me she typed in google.com in the add a page, but when she closed chrome and went back into Google, it still came up on the welcome page.

When she arrows down, both the welcome page and google.com are listed.  The latter twice.

I remember seeing an option to remove a page, but I think it was one of those that got there in a way we can’t.

From my playing around with more actions several times, my page has redundancies that I’d love to remove.

 Open a specific page or set of pages (checked)

Google

https://www.google.com/

More actions

https://www.google.com

https://www.google.com/

More actions

https://www.google.com

https://www.google.com/

More actions

Add a new page

Use current pages

Why can’t they just have an edit box and a set page button?

And if you had multiple pages listed is there a remove button that can be tabbed to.

I only have google listed, but if my friend could remove the welcome page, which I assume is the default, then only the google.com would be left.

I’m too tired probably to be explaining this properly…  Smile.

Subject: [jaws-users] A Question about chrome settings

 

I was trying to help a friend set up her chrome.

In the tutorial from a list member, It said:

Next Important heading:

On Start up.

Here is where you put in your URL that you want to show as soon as you start Chrome.

There are three radio buttons to pick from, but I chose to open with a specific page or pages, which is the third radio button.

Under this, you can type in the URL of the web site that you want to open when you start Chrome.

 

We chose the third button but could not figure out how to enter a web address.

Underneath my checkboxes is the address for google, but JAWS does not list that as being in an edit box.

I set Chrome up so long ago that I can’t remember what I did.

We experimented with the options that followed, more actions, add a new page and use current page, I think it said.  She saw no edit box.

When I google, I find the following directions:

• Open Chrome.

• Click the overflow icon that looks like three vertical dots in the upper right corner.

• Click to open the Settings menu.

• Scroll down and click on Advanced Settings.

• Select Open a specific page or set of pages under On Startup.

• Select Set pages.

list end

Obviously as a keyboard user, I can’t get to that overflow icon as they called it with JAWS and this opens a menu of options not available from the settings menu from the alt key menu.

What are we missing?

Thanks.

Rebecca

Re: How to rip CDs with VLC

try the following and see if this works for you:

1: insert your cd in to your cd rom and hold a shift key down to stop any automatic starting of the cd playing.
2: once the cd is inserted and not playing, execute vlc
3: press alt+m and down arrow to convert. . . . and press enter
4: now, press alt plus d and tab to convert. . . and press enter again
5: tab to destination and press enter, you will be prompted for a file name, I would enter something like c:\filename and press enter.
6: tab to save and press enter.
7: now, tab till you hear start press enter and press enter. the process should start. if you are running windows 10, you may be prompted to save the rip to the music folder, there, press alt plus y. hope this helps.

I'm hoping someone can give me step-by-step instructions for how to rip a CD with VLC media player. I've tried intuition and Google, but I'm getting nowhere. I know to start with control-r, and I also know to select disc. I know that VLC recognizes the CD I have in that drive. However, I can't get any results. One time I accidentally recorded two tracks, but even though they were somehow saved as .WAV files and VLC is my default .WAV app, there's no sound. By contrast, when I just play the CD with VLC, the sound is fine.

I'll mention that I have Windows Media player set to rip CDs, but I close that program when I want VLC to do the job. Could it be interfering anyway?

Thanks for any instructions or tips.

Rebecca,

 

You should find “remove” after you click on the “More actions” button.

I recommend closing and reopening Chrome before you go through this operation. Then open the webpage you want to be the startup default. Make sure no other pages are open.

Hi Mike,

I sent this off-list to someone else who kindly replied with the same suggestion.

My friend told me she typed in google.com in the add a page, but when she closed chrome and went back into Google, it still came up on the welcome page.

When she arrows down, both the welcome page and google.com are listed.  The latter twice.

I remember seeing an option to remove a page, but I think it was one of those that got there in a way we can’t.

From my playing around with more actions several times, my page has redundancies that I’d love to remove.

 Open a specific page or set of pages (checked)

Use current pages

Why can’t they just have an edit box and a set page button?

And if you had multiple pages listed is there a remove button that can be tabbed to.

I only have google listed, but if my friend could remove the welcome page, which I assume is the default, then only the google.com would be left.

I’m too tired probably to be explaining this properly…  Smile.

Hi Adrian,

 

Try the following:

Okay, I found that you can fast forward through the, Choose default apps by file type link, if you turn Key Repeat on. 

1. To do this, after the file types list is loaded up open the Settings Center with, Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, and if you get a new configuration message select the, Okay, option and press the spacebar.  Arrow down to, User closed, and right arrow to open.

 

2. Down arrow to, Key Repeat not checked, and press the spacebar to check this.

 

3. Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.  Now if you hold the Tab key down it will fast forward through this long list of file types.

It's funny listening to Jaws fast forward through this long files type list because it sounds like fast forwarding a cassette tape.  LOL 

Take care.  Go Rams!

Subject: Re: [jaws-users] File association

 

In Windows 7, the file association process was handled essentially with two columns, one of applications, the other of file types. I could, for example, select Window Media Player in the first column, then turning to the second, use first-letter navigation (beginning with a period) to locate a file type I wanted that application to open.

 

In Windows 10, as Mike B explains in a post I’ve copied below, you select a general category, such as email or video, and choose an application to handle that entire genre.

 

But what if I want Windows Media Player to handle some audio file types but VLC some other audio file types? It looks like the only way to do this is to select “Choose default app by file types.” Clicking on this link takes me to an interminable list of file types listed by button so that I must tab three thousand times to get, for example, to .WAV.

 

Is there a more efficient method available to screenreader users?

Hi Glenn,

 

Try the following:

1. Windows key + I, to open Settings, tab 1 time to, System, now right arrow to, Apps, and press enter.

2. Tab 1 time to get into a list of options, down arrow to Default Apps and press enter.

3. Tab 1 time to hear, Email... button, and press enter.  Now tab or shift / tab to find the email client you want to use for the default and press enter.

4. You can now close out and check to make sure your choice sticks.

Take care.  Go Rams!

You should be able to go to control panel and type in default programs and tab to set a default program and find it in the list.

I may be leaving out a final step, I don't know windows 10 very well.

I just tried helping someone do this with setting windows 10 mail program as the default program, and it still defaults to Thunderbird.

Ok, I’m really tired.  I did find something that said remove by arrowing down after I pressed enter on the more actions button.

But it did not say button, and there was no URL showing anywhere to apply such a button to if it had been labeled as such!  Rubbing ears in frustration  LOL.!.  Where do you get to the addresses?

Hi Rebecca,
 
You may want to do a reset.  I know this sounds like a total pain in the Gluteus maximus but, it might be the only way to get Chrome back to the defaults so you can start fresh.  If you want try this...
1. Open Settings and navigate by heading to, Reset and Cleanup.
2. Down arrow 1 time to, Restore settings to their original defaults, down arrow 1 more time to Restore settings to their original defaults button.  I've never done this but, pressing enter or spacebar on this will button will probably start the restoration of the default settings.
Below the above is , Clean up computer, and Clean up computer button but, I'm not sure what this will do.
