Thanks again, Mike. It turns out the “key repeat” checkbox was already checked. I just hadn’t held down the tab key. Now that I have, on my system I don’t get Donald Duck. I just get silence. So I release the tab key from time to time to mark my progress. It’s way better than pressing the tab key over and over and over again, but still inefficient.

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!

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?

By “file properties,” I take it you mean to put focus on the file and press alt-enter. I’ve gone through the entire Properties dialog without finding an option to open with a different application. However, when I press the applications key, one option that appears is “Open with…”

Re: How to rip CDs with VLC

Adrian Spratt
 

Thanks for going to this trouble. However, I already have Windows Media Player installed and ready to rip, so to speak. My reason for wanting to try ripping with VLC is that it plays CDs with very good clarity, unlike the WMA files that WMP creates. I was hoping VLC would do a better job at ripping.

here are the links to download anyburn:

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.

Re: A Question about chrome settings

Adrian Spratt
 

Glenn,

 

If your method works for you, it must work. But bear with me and my ignorance on this. I’ve just now opened Chrome’s properties, which as usual opens to the shortcut tab. So far, so good. On my system, I don’t need to tab once to get to the target field. It’s right there after I press alt-enter to open properties. However, the text already there is this:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

 

I’ve always assumed this field tells the application, in  this case Chrome, something crucial about its operation, not what the default page is or should be.

 

I wouldn’t want to change this setting until I understand better what the target field is doing. Could you or someone else explain?

This annoyance is why I came up with adapting the desktop shortcut to go directly to your homepage.

It's easiest if you go to your home page and do control + L and control + C to copy the link.

Close Chrome and go to the desktop and press alt + enter on the icon Google Chrome.

tab once to the target field, and press the end key

Do a space and paste in your URL

Save the changes and Google will always open to your home 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.

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 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.

Re: A Question about chrome settings

Adrian Spratt
 

Rebecca,

 

The “remove” link you found is exactly what you want. As I recall, shift-tabbing once from that link will land you on the URL identification of the page you want deleted. Just do a return tab to “remove” and press enter. That URL will be gone.

 

When I went through this process last night, I decided to remove all the pages I had listed in this “More actions” dialog. It ensured that the URL I entered afterwards would be the one and only one that Chrome would see as my default.

 

I’ll emphasize again, it seemed to make a difference that I was on the page I wanted to be my default opening page. to make absolutely sure, after deleting existing defaults, I closed Chrome, reopened it, and then opened the default page I wanted. Only then did I make it the default in settings.

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.

Hi,

 

Try this as someone on the list gave these instructions. 

 

  1. Go to your desktop and select your jaws 2019 icon on your desktop and press ctrl C to copy it to the clipboard.
  2. Press windows R to open the run box and type the following.  Shell:startup
  3. Press enter and once it opens, you will be placed in the startup folder.
  4. Now paste your jaws icon in this folder.
  5. Close this folder and you should be back on your desktop.

Now the next time you restart your pc and login jaws should come up talking.  This has worked for me on all my devices.  HTH.

Glenn,

 

If your method works for you, it must work. But bear with me and my ignorance on this. I’ve just now opened Chrome’s properties, which as usual opens to the shortcut tab. So far, so good. On my system, I don’t need to tab once to get to the target field. It’s right there after I press alt-enter to open properties. However, the text already there is this:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

 

I’ve always assumed this field tells the application, in  this case Chrome, something crucial about its operation, not what the default page is or should be.

 

I wouldn’t want to change this setting until I understand better what the target field is doing. Could you or someone else explain?

This annoyance is why I came up with adapting the desktop shortcut to go directly to your homepage.

It's easiest if you go to your home page and do control + L and control + C to copy the link.

Close Chrome and go to the desktop and press alt + enter on the icon Google Chrome.

tab once to the target field, and press the end key

Do a space and paste in your URL

Save the changes and Google will always open to your home page.

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.

File Type Associations with Jaws

Rick Justice <ricjustice@...>
 

Hi Adrian,
When you open the properties of a file, Jaws typically is focused on the
"Read Only" checkbox.
If you shift tab once, you will find the "Change" button,
shift tab once more, and you should be on the file name edit box.
If Jaws would land on the "General" tab heading to begin with, it would make
more sense.

HTH,

Chrome Startup Page Solved

Rebecca Lineberger
 

If I hadn’t been several hours beyond exhausted yesterday after too many eons of puzzle-solving, the obvious solution for my friend would have occurred to me!  LOL.  Just too simple.  Duh? Chrome would not let her set google.com as her startup page—why do we need a separate startup page anyway, Chrome?—so I just told her to go to google.com and make a shortcut to the desktop!  Done.  No more welcome page unless she chooses to use the original Chrome link, or unless she opens a new tab from her home page. The visited links they list could be convenient, but all of the ones they list for me currently are also on my desktop because I use them all the time.

Sometimes we just have to learn to think outside the box and the simplest solutions are what we often overlook.

I'm sure it does. But I haven't tried it for this purpose. There is

I think someone in the audio group already pointed you in the right

Subject: Re: [jaws-users] 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.

Re: Chrome Startup Page Solved

Although I never added to this thread until now I did have the same problem. However I was so happy with this short cut simple solution. Thanks much.

Every country has an identity, history, custom, and culture. It’s a unique landscape in determining how its people Live, work, and play.

If I hadn’t been several hours beyond exhausted yesterday after too many eons of puzzle-solving, the obvious solution for my friend would have occurred to me!  LOL.  Just too simple.  Duh? Chrome would not let her set google.com as her startup page—why do we need a separate startup page anyway, Chrome?—so I just told her to go to google.com and make a shortcut to the desktop!  Done.  No more welcome page unless she chooses to use the original Chrome link, or unless she opens a new tab from her home page. The visited links they list could be convenient, but all of the ones they list for me currently are also on my desktop because I use them all the time.

Sometimes we just have to learn to think outside the box and the simplest solutions are what we often overlook.

Re: Registry first aid version 11

Glenn and list,

 

I downloaded this program and read the instructions and help files. It sounds like it would be real easy to select something to be deleted that shouldn’t be. Do you manually select what you want removed or let the program automatically make suggestions and select them?

I get very nervous when doing anything   regarding the registry. Comments?

That is the version I'm using.

I have only used the GUI version, I did not know that they had a CLI version.

I am reading that the new 11 version is graphical user interface (GUI). Are you on that version and is it compatible with latest version of JAWS?

 

Wondering if others on this list have had good success with this cleaner as well?

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

But I have never had any problems with letting it make the right choices.

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?

It was a purchased program, but not very expensive, seems like 10 or 15 dollars.

I've had it for a year or so.

Hi Glenn,

 

After you click on the install button there's another button or checkbox you have to respond to.  It's a license agreement or something of that nature.  If you can't get it installed go to,

 

 

and get / install it from there.

 

Take care.  Go Rams!

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?

Re: Registry first aid version 11

Some people are scared of electricity too, but if you use regular precautions, all will be fine.
I have never seen a system not boot up after using such a tool, but if it concerns you, download one of the talking WinPe tools and burn it to DVD, so you can resort to a recovery.
If a program does not work right afterwards, just use the backed up one.
Also, if you are concerned that it might affect Jaws, just install NVDA as a backup screenreader.
