Converting emails to Windows 10

Ricky Lomey
 

Hi list

Are there any other programmes than building a virtual XP machine and also
Windows Live Mail that can convert emails from Outlook Express 6.0 to
Outlook 2016 in Windows 10, I don't expect technical details here but when
you Google it, it seems so easy but it's not as simple as opening the files
and importing the messages, the Windows live Mail programme my techie
installed remotely and one video he found on Google told him the same advice
but for some reason it wouldn't follow the instructions given, my techie
thinks the only way would be to get a virtual XP machine or maybe this
desktop has enough space for him to install one on or maybe the info on
Google is paid products, not sure, I'll also go through the results I
Googled but some just seem too easy though I'd never try it at home myself.

Thanks.

Hi, 

 

I’m curious why the option to have jaws not cutoff words, is only available when audio ducking is disabled. 

 

I use audio ducking all the time, but would still love to be able to take advantage of this feature.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Hi, Jessica. The reason the new setting in JAWS to keep sound cards awake is not enabled while Audio Ducking is enabled is because, while audio is being
ducked, another application is running which uses the sound card. If another application is using the sound card, that application will usually keep the
sound card awake, independently of JAWS.

New Option to Keep Wireless Speakers and Sound Cards from Clipping Speech
When JAWS or Fusion Begins Speaking  
Many modern Bluetooth headphones and speakers as well as some onboard sound
cards shut down when no audio is received in order to conserve battery. JAWS
now includes a new option, which when enabled, keeps these devices awake by
constantly playing silence. You will not hear anything, but your device will
remain active, resulting in more consistent speech. To enable this feature,
open Settings Center (INSERT+6) on the number row, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to
load
the default settings, and search for "Avoid speech cut off when using
Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards."
 
Note: The battery of your headphones/speakers could drain faster if you
choose to turn on this feature. This option is also not available if the
Audio
Ducking feature is enabled which lowers the audio volume of programs while
JAWS speaks.
 


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

The JAWS group has a thread on this.

In brief, from the JAWS settings, for the default all applications.

Use control+E, to access the search box.

Type, cut, you should hear the result for this problem with blueTooth and some sound cards, press enter on this.

Using the space bar will turn on or off this feature.

Hello Everyone,

I’m not exactly sure if this topic is something I can discuss on this list, so please forgive me if it is not.  I installed a Bluetooth headset on my Dell Inspiron 15 3565 using JAWS 2020.  I am having a lot of trouble with sound stuttering whenever I use the headset unless I play something in the background.  I believe this issue was discussed on this list a few months ago, but unfortunately I didn’t pay much attention since I didn’t have this headset then and I haven’t been able to find the topic when I searched.  Anyway, I found out about this program called Silenzio that would probably fix the problem for me, but I can’t figure out where to download it.  It may be a program that is not being used anymore.  Is there any possibility that someone could send me a link to download this if it is still available?  To keep from cluttering the list, please send to my personal email, lynne57moore@....  Thank you so much for any help you can give.

Hello,

Thank you for your incredibly comprehensive explanation, that definitely helped! I'd also like to thank you for your willingness to help me out in this further, should I need it. Really appreciate it! :')

Hi.


I3 will be fine. I have a 6th gen i3 system that is very responsive. It does get a little sluggish doing certain things but it is plenty fast enough to do what ever you want. You get i5 or i7 if you want really responsive and really fast, but meanwhile i3 isn't slow. It's like fast, faster and holy that's fast.


I personally use and like Lenovo except that my current Lenovo is a bit of a Lemon. I consider this a corner case though. If you do go for Lenovo, try to get a Thinkpad. Their keyboards are largely consistent in design, and usually follow the design you requested. Some of the lenovo sound cards go to sleep in a way that is particularly annoying for screen readers. If this happens you should be able to get it to let you run the microsoft hd audio driver or, if not, silenzio will do the trick, as will virtual audio cable, you can ask for instructions on that when needed.


Other than that though, Asus is excellent but to keep something in mind, none of the 13 inch Asus Zenbook models that have just released with the 11th gen processors yet have a headphone jack. At least some of the 14 inch Zenbooks also don't. Some of the Asus models have home, end, page up and page down on the function key row, which means if you turn fn key lock on so that the function keys are function keys by default, you then have to press fn and a button on the number row any time you want to go home, end, page up or page down, let alone any additional modifiers for screen reader commands. You'll need to do your research, but at the very least, asus appears to be using audio implementation that is pretty non obtrusive.


I personally don't like hp because I failed hinges on two completely different hp units right in a row, but if you get an hp two in one convertible you'll probably get cold metal hinges that should be tougher. At least some hp units also have the audio driver issue similar to some Lenovo models though, and hp has some strange ideas about their keyboards, for instance a fingerprint reader where one of the control keys should have been. I do believe modern hp laptops won't include a context key so you have to hit shift+f10 or shift+fn+f10. Lenovo doesn't either, but Thinkpads have a key between right alt and right control that is print screen, you can remap that using the free portable sharp keys program to a context key, which makes sense as that is where context key should be and print screen can be accomplished via other key combinations. Asus lets you press fn+right control for the context key.


Once you start finding specific models you think you might like, feel free to ask for feedback

Hello,

First off, I apologize if this isn't the forum for asking this question or if it has already been asked here (if it has, I would appreciate if you could direct me to it).
If not, I would like a Windows 10 laptop (obviously) that works well with JAWS, which is my prefered screen reader. I've heard on other forums to avoid brands such as Lenovo and Acer but rather look at laptops manufactured by HP or Asus. What do you guys think? I'm also looking for laptops that aren't too big or too heavy, and have long, defined keys that I can easily locate with my fingers. I've also heard on those same forums you need at least an i5 CPU if you use JAWS - is that important? Or will i3 be fine? I'll also be using this laptop mainly to read books, watch videos and attend Zoom classes.

What does everybody think? Any and all suggestions will help a great deal.

Thanks,

Re: How to configure network connection to use Ethernet instead of wifi?

My understanding is that Windows 10 will give priority to Ethernet even if both Ethernet and Wifi are connected.

Steven,

           The search function of Windows 10 setting is your (the generic you) friend.  If you open settings and start typing battery, then down arrow, the first thing in the list of suggestions beneath the search box is battery saver settings, which if activated, takes you there.

            Immediately under the entry for Battery Saver Settings are Turn Battery Saver On/Off and Battery Saver Overview.

            Battery saver only kicks in at the "critical percentage" of remaining battery life that you choose, and the default on my machine ins 20%.  So until you reach 20% remaining power it does nothing.  So setting it on "all the time" really isn't "all the time" other than monitoring the remaining battery power.

             If you're trying to keep maximum functional battery life, change your power plan to turn off the screen very quickly when on battery power and you haven't done anything (say, 5 minutes) and to trigger sleep in not much more time (say, 10 minutes).  Firing back up from sleep is virtually instant and the power consumption when sleeping is minuscule, so you can go for many hours of use if you're not using continuously.

             There are scads of write-ups on Windows 10 Battery Saver:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Windows+10+Battery+Saver

Sound Card Help Needed

Lynne Moore
 

Hello Everyone,

I’m not exactly sure if this topic is something I can discuss on this list, so please forgive me if it is not.  I installed a Bluetooth headset on my Dell Inspiron 15 3565 using JAWS 2020.  I am having a lot of trouble with sound stuttering whenever I use the headset unless I play something in the background.  I believe this issue was discussed on this list a few months ago, but unfortunately I didn’t pay much attention since I didn’t have this headset then and I haven’t been able to find the topic when I searched.  Anyway, I found out about this program called Silenzio that would probably fix the problem for me, but I can’t figure out where to download it.  It may be a program that is not being used anymore.  Is there any possibility that someone could send me a link to download this if it is still available?  To keep from cluttering the list, please send to my personal email, lynne57moore@....  Thank you so much for any help you can give.

Well, do you mean when wifi if off, even if nvda read my wifi ssid in the system bar, it is still using Ethernet connection?


Sieghard Weitzel 於 22/1/2021 13:49 寫道:

If your WiFi is turned off it's off, what you see is your Ethernet connection, I see this as well on all my work PC's, but I did the same thing, WiFi is turned off and of course if it's off then it's off and it obviously can't connect. I wouldn't bother doing anything else and I see little point in trying to forget the network and all that.

Re: Battery Saver

 

Steven,

           The search function of Windows 10 setting is your (the generic you) friend.  If you open settings and start typing battery, then down arrow, the first thing in the list of suggestions beneath the search box is battery saver settings, which if activated, takes you there.

            Immediately under the entry for Battery Saver Settings are Turn Battery Saver On/Off and Battery Saver Overview.

            Battery saver only kicks in at the "critical percentage" of remaining battery life that you choose, and the default on my machine ins 20%.  So until you reach 20% remaining power it does nothing.  So setting it on "all the time" really isn't "all the time" other than monitoring the remaining battery power.

             If you're trying to keep maximum functional battery life, change your power plan to turn off the screen very quickly when on battery power and you haven't done anything (say, 5 minutes) and to trigger sleep in not much more time (say, 10 minutes).  Firing back up from sleep is virtually instant and the power consumption when sleeping is minuscule, so you can go for many hours of use if you're not using continuously.

             There are scads of write-ups on Windows 10 Battery Saver:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Windows+10+Battery+Saver

Battery Saver

Steven Hicks
 

Hi friends,

 

Not sure how but just messing around and I found an option called battery saver.

It seems to have been turned off by default.

Does anyone know where it is located and set, if there are any more info about it?

It may make a big difference if I set it on all the time?

I guess it slows the processor down and all kind of things?

My best laptop only give about 2.5 hours max but turning this on could make a big difference?

Starting to get used to Microsoft Edge rather than Google Chrome and I am really starting to like it.

Does anyone have any tips on how to use favourites e.g how to add sites and access and open then e.g. shortcut keys?

Does that work in the control panel as well as sometimes it is useful when in there to click to the search box rather than tabbing around to find it.

You can also try the, Windows key + Q, keystroke.  This keystroke puts me in a search box no matter where I invoke it.

Hi friends,

 

Just some general advice really, I am quite set in my ways but not sure I am using Microsoft Windows 10 in the most efficient way.

I Normally have a few applications open all the time e.g. Outlook, our call management system, a remote desktop window for example.

When I switch between these apps, I always use alt tab which means that sometimes I have to multiple alt+tab.

My understanding is that the apps are down in the taskbar when I move out of them?

So if for example I memorised the number of an app in the task bar, I could jump direct to it each time I want it rather than having to multiple alt tab tuntil I find it, does that make sense?

And to jump direct to a numbered app in the taskbar, I hold down the windows key and the numbers 1 through 9?
