hi Howard, as you seem to know the logitech h600. Can you please give me a rundown on the switches controls on this headset, before I think of purchasing it for myself?,

hi guys, Looking for some help with the Logitechh600 wireless headset
please.
Anyone on list using this headset, that could help me out. I'm thinking of
purchasing it, and would like to know if it is straight up for a blind
person to set this headset up. It looks at first glance, pretty difficult?,
The h600 looks like it would probably work ok, since it uses a receiver
dongle that is not BlueTooth. One thing I would warn against is using any
BlueTooth headset, because there is a delay in startup after a timeout,
which makes BlueTooth worse than useless for a blind person because you
will lose information every time the BlueTooth times out (after just a few
seconds).

That said, I have discovered a workaround that gets rid of the infuriating
startup delay on BlueTooth. Find a free metronome app (there are several
for PCs and for tablets/phones), install it, and set it to run
automatically on startup. Make sure the app you choose has a volume control
that is separate from your operating system's volume control, because you
will want it to run VERY softly in the background. Set it for about 60
beats per minute, and it will defeat the BlueTooth timeout, at the expense
of running your battery down faster. Depending on how long you use your
headset during a session on your PC/tablet, and the headset's battery
capacity, that workaround may not be worth the trade-off.

Hi

Adrien <adriencollins22160@...>
 

 

I am new to windows 10, have a lot to learn, am mostly self taught though.

 

One question, I log in to windows with my outlook account password, how do I change this to a pin, can’t find the setting.

 

One other question. In computer, all my drives are in a grid, I would prefer them in a list, I use nvda, how do I change this please?

 

No doubt I’ll have a lot more questions over time.

Thanks.

 

 

Regards

Adrien

Re: accessibility of Kaspersky

While Kaspersky may not be a model for fabulous accessibility, my
experience with it has been somewhat more positive. The majority of the

What I'm about to say may sound harsh and may cause a bit of controversy
and, while I'm sorry if this is the case, generating controversy is not
my goal. Blind computer users tend to use antivirus programs which are
accessible to their screen reader but which may not necessarily provide
ideal protection for your computer. Lest you think I'm pointing fingers,
let me assure you that I was one of those people. Years ago, I used AVG
during its version 7.5 days, where its interface was so amazingly
accessible it almost felt like it was made for screen reader users,
including the ability to remap all of its various functions to any
hotkey you chose. Starting with 8.0, AVG became more of a challenge to
use and I gravitated to Avast, giving little thought as to how robust
its protection might have been but using it, primarily, due to its level
of screen reader accessibility. When version 5 of Avast came out,
accessibility was broken and I knew it was time to switch antivirus
programs again.

Several years later, I along with tons of blind computer users moved to
Microsoft Security Essentials. It was easy to use, light on resources
and was 100% accessible. Eventually, I began reading reports of how MSE
was falling behind when it came to security. In spite of those warnings,
I was willing to take the risk and I continued to rely on it. After all,
I thought, I'm a fairly savvy computer user. I use a script blocker, am
cautious about which Web sites I visit, which attachments I open before
scanning, keeping my system updated, ensuring that my firewall and
router were as secure as I knew how to make them, etc. However, last
summer my machine was hit with a crippling virus, one which MSE somehow
missed. I am aware that many people report that they have been using MSE
for years and have never been hit by a virus. Again, I was one of those
users. It's possible that those of you who use MSE will never be hit
with malware. I am also aware that users of other antivirus programs
known for their reliability could share similar stories of how they were
similarly attacked, in spite of the reputation of the security software
they had chosen. However, I was well aware of the negative reports
surrounding MSE and I was willing to ignore them for the sake of
convenience. Once I was hit with a virus I made the decision that I
would never again compromise my computer's security for reasons of
accessibility. I was determined to find a better, more robust solution
and go with it. If the program was not accessible, I was determined to
use my advocacy skills to effect positive change. I chose Kaspersky and,
while it lacks the accessibility of MSE, at least I know it's doing a
much better job of keeping my computer more secure than MSE currently does.

For those who are considering downloading a trial of Kaspersky, I will
warn you that the 2016 installer is 100% inaccessible. However, the
installer for version 2015 is wonderfully usable, with HTML-based
dialogs which are easy to navigate and elements which are actionable. If
you can locate the 2015 installer, it will check for newer versions and
will then download the 2016 version.

When it comes to PC security software, I truly believe that we're in a
bit of a crisis situation. Screen reader vendors will go out of their
way to ensure that their product is accessible with the latest Microsoft
Office offerings. When we have a new version of Word or Excel, the
developers scramble to ensure that the screen reader will work with
every new ribbon, menu, dialog and feature introduced within that
program. Yet these same developers seem to take little or no action when
it comes to ensuring that their product works with the more well-known
security products and this is, to me, quite unacceptable. This should be
a priority with all screen reader developers and yet users seem to
accept the sorry state of accessibility which we are currently dealing
with when it comes to security software. I have started a mailing list
to discuss what types of advocacy we can engage in to attempt to change
the landscape. For more information on this group, feel free to visit

Re: Items in explore, highlighted

Loy,

          Not that I know of.  However, have you looked at Control Panel, File Explorer Options, View Tab, "Use check boxes to select items" checkbox.  This puts a checkbox on each and every icon and as you select them the checkbox is checked.  This can be much easier to see if the light blue is difficult.

In windows 7, items in windows explorer and other list, the item in focus was highlighted in dark blue. Now in Windows 10 it is very light blue. Is there a way to change this?

Hi listers,
I asked this question on another list but no one seems to be able to
figure
it out.
I thought I would pick your brains a little, and see if anyone can come up
with a solution.
I hope I don't confuse you guys to much with my description of my problem.
Anyways here goes nothing.

I open internet explorer from my taskbar. Oh yes I'm using jaws 17 latest
build, and of course windows 10.
I visit a particular website and click to download something. I decide to
click alt n and choose the option that says view and track your downloads.
Everything works correctly. A window pops up where I can see and moniter
my
download.
I minimize this window to wait for the download to finish. I close all
other internet explorer tabs because I don't want to do anything more on
the
internet.
I for example walk away from the computer, or I open a word document to
work
on another project while my download is completing, or I open outlook to
brouse through my email while I'm waiting.
I see something of interest in my email and decide to open internet
explorer
to search for my querry.
Here is where the problem is, I go to internet explorer on the task bar
but
it's not there, the only thing I see is the window called view and track
your downloads. If I bring this window up the control t does not work to
open a new tab.
Someone might say why close the internet tabs in the first place? Well at
the time when I closed them I had no intention of surfing the net, of
course
I changed my mind and it seems that if you have this window open you can't
seem to open a new tab.
I'm thinking the solution is right in front of my eyes, but I can't seem
to
figure it out. Certainly it doesn't make sence that while downloading
something you wouldn't be able to open internet explorer.
Any ideas? I would sure appreciate the help, thanks in advanced for any
thoughts.
Regards
Zoe













Re: solution required for task bar internet explorer

Steve Dresser
 

Another advantage to the desktop shortcut is that you can assign a hotkey to it, which means you can invoke it no matter where you are on the machine without having to go back to the desktop. Also, you can specify in the shortcut that the window you open will be maximized, which forces other windows to be minimized and thus prevents them from showing up as "ghosts."

and the app associated with that number on the task bar should open.

this not working for me?
On my task bar when I tab I hear file explorer button, mazilla firefox
button, acer portal, acer quick access, and internet explorer.
To be able to use the control shift and number do I have to assign these
shortcuts and if yes how do I do that?

Hi,

Press CTRL+SHIFT+number (the number according to the location of Internet
Explorer in taskbar) to open a new Internet Explorer while downloading.

Hi Zoe, the solution is simple. Find internet explorer on the taskbar, and
press the application key. you can then open new tab from it.

Hi listers,
I asked this question on another list but no one seems to be able to
figure
it out.
I thought I would pick your brains a little, and see if anyone can come up
with a solution.
I hope I don't confuse you guys to much with my description of my problem.
Anyways here goes nothing.

I open internet explorer from my taskbar. Oh yes I'm using jaws 17 latest
build, and of course windows 10.
I visit a particular website and click to download something. I decide to
click alt n and choose the option that says view and track your downloads.
Everything works correctly. A window pops up where I can see and moniter
my
download.
I minimize this window to wait for the download to finish. I close all
other internet explorer tabs because I don't want to do anything more on
the
internet.
I for example walk away from the computer, or I open a word document to
work
on another project while my download is completing, or I open outlook to
brouse through my email while I'm waiting.
I see something of interest in my email and decide to open internet
explorer
to search for my querry.
Here is where the problem is, I go to internet explorer on the task bar
but
it's not there, the only thing I see is the window called view and track
your downloads. If I bring this window up the control t does not work to
open a new tab.
Someone might say why close the internet tabs in the first place? Well at
the time when I closed them I had no intention of surfing the net, of
course
I changed my mind and it seems that if you have this window open you can't
seem to open a new tab.
I'm thinking the solution is right in front of my eyes, but I can't seem
to
figure it out. Certainly it doesn't make sence that while downloading
something you wouldn't be able to open internet explorer.
Any ideas? I would sure appreciate the help, thanks in advanced for any
thoughts.

Zoe

















using an older Pacmate with Windows 10

Jeff Kenyon <jkenyon7@...>
 

HI all, I have recently acquired an older Pacmate that I would like to use with Windows 10 and the latest version of JAWS.  I know that this unit uses Exchange, and this is about a 10 year old unit.  This is the Pacmate Omni, and I want to use it as a Braille Display as well as exchange files between my computer and the unit.  Any help would be great, and thanks in advance.

Hey it works. I tried it with the combo you just gave me. The other combo
was given by a previous poster, I guess they made a mistake no harm done. I
still think I'll create the desktop shortcut to make it easier, but it's
good to have the windows key number shortcut in the back of my head. Glad it
works and nothing is wrong.

I think your right, shortcut sounds better to me as well.

Zoe,

      The CTRL+SHIFT+NUMBER shortcut applies, if memory serves, not to "fixed buttons" on your taskbar but to the location of the running program in the collection on the taskbar.  Let's say that you have File Explorer open first and it is, thus, the leftmost open program on the taskbar, MS-Word was opened afterward so it's the second program on the taskbar, and IE third.

       You do your thing with IE such that you've closed the main window but the downloads window remains on the taskbar and remains in position #3.  Hitting CTRL+SHIFT+3 should cause a new IE window to open.

        I'd still go with either pinning to the start menu or creating a desktop shortcut, as position can change as you open/close programs.  If I'm wrong here I'm sure someone will correct me.  I don't like this technique because it's "subject to change" from a couple of different angles since it's relative placement and I prefer fixed placement and access.  To each his or her own.

Hi Brian that s true with my new Lenovo G 5080 which I purchased last
Christmas, but the currupted laptop is G570 of Lenovo which I bought
in 2011 and there I find no such key...
More over I suppose the recovery matter should also be deleted as one
of my friend tried to repair my OS.
What about the use of media creation devices in my case? how to make
one for my currupted laptop from my working laptop? I am running win
10 currently and I need for win 7.
