Re: Best CD/DVD Burning sollution?

 

Well, it all depends on what you are ready to do.

Ie are you ready to continue as you are, or do you want to go modular.

While it may not work, there are places you can get non legal coppies of nero with the malware associated with it ofcause and it works.

But if you want to go modular, the following solution should work.

None of this stuff has any candy or malware or bundled things.

1. mp3 conversion.

http://winlame.sf.net.

Yeah winlame is old, was made in 2010, is not updated, is old, and a total bunch of utter crap by modern standards but don't knock it, the thing still works.

I still use it.

2. cd burner xp.

Dispite its name, this thing is free, donationware and well quite good, I donated once to the project I think you can optionaly pay 10 bucks for a personal licence, its qdos really and bragging rights but even so the software is good.

Its fully menu and wizzard driven, and commands are the same ie control b is burn, and everything else can be selected, I don't think you can write dvds or blueray with it but I havn't tried to write more than cds I think it can do dvds to but to be honest I havn't pushed it.

I have written data and audio disks with it and its worked fine enough.

3. goldwave.

Yeah I know this aint free, its 40 bucks for the thing but it uses cddb just like nero and you can use its cd reader to extract tracks which is my main reason for buying it.

These are the cd writing modules I use.

I also use audacity, virtual recorder etc as well as the applian video conversion suite which does cost about 100 nz bucks, as well as youtube dl-g.

Still the basics will give you everything you need.

I'm not sure why I prefer going this way over just using what's already there, but in the past, I used to use Nero Burning rom.

I know that Nero's still being developed, but I'm just wonderring, if someone was to really want an actually all in one burning sollution, would this then be the best route to take?

I also know of things like NCH Express Burn, but again, I'm not sure how feature rich it is, or to what extent it is capable.

So yeah, I'm just wonderring, for those who don't prefer using the native Windows 10 stuff, who actually want a full burning suite, what's probably the most common now adays that also would give good JAWS accessibility? I do also have NVDA, so, if it would be more advised to go that route, then OK. It's not exactly my preference in combination with an AIO burner, but I'm willing to explore that option if I absolutely must.

Also, I'd prefer something which is freeware, however, I'm open to anything as long as you can assure me beyond a doubt that it's accessible and would at least...

Burn audio CD's
Burn data CD's
Burn ISO images
Make ISO images
Burn movie files like MPG, or AVI to standard format DVD's
Copy CD's
Copy DVD's

Regarding the DVD side of it, I fully get that it wouldn't probably work if the movies, or DVD's to be copied were protect encrypted. That's fine. I'm not trying to do this to strip DRM and illegally burn things. That's absolutely not my intent. Doing this will be 100% legal, and totally legit... things like old home videos we've made, etc.

I don't currently have a blueray reader/writer drive, although I'd be willing to eventually invest in one, if it would work with a laptop, so if the software supported blueray, it's not by any means at all necessary for now, but it would be a nice bonus.

Also, I already have a good CD ripper, so it doesn't need to rip CD's, as long as it at least would burn them.

Re: updating to creator's update from windows 7, does the free upgrade for assistive technology users work for this?

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

The free Windows 10 upgrade for users of assistive technology who are still on Windows 7 or 8/8.1 is still active:

                   https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade

Only Microsoft knows whether the ISO that's used for this has been changed to install the Creators Update (Version 1703), but I would not be surprised that it has not since the roll out for Version 1703 is far from complete.  I wouldn't be surprised if they had, though.

As you said, in the end it matters not, since machines on Version 1607 will all eventually upgrade to Version 1703.

updating to creator's update from windows 7, does the free upgrade for assistive technology users work for this?

valiant8086
 

Hi all.


Someone I know is running win7, and interested in updating to win10. The microsoft download page for the free upgrade to windows 10 for assistive technology users mentions win10 annivversary. If they download and run that tool, will it put them on anniversary update, where they'd have to update then to creator's? or will it go directly to creator's. I'm not sure it really matters in the end, because the end result will be the same in any case. It does still work, the free upgrade, doesn't it?

Re: two urgent problems with creator's update on one of my computers

 

You know I have issues at times where search will just not bring up results, desktop apps just go away and only web ones.

If I restart the system they all come back but as for stuff going away, I have had win10 do weird things from time to time, a reboot usually makes these go away, I'd like to know why this is.

Ofcause some stuff can crash so who knows.

Hello Joseph,

I've asked this question on various lists and not got any response so I'm wondering if you as an win10 insider have the answer? About a week ago now my ie11 started omitting sounds when entering or leaving form fields with my assistive technology running. This occurs in ie11, firefox, chrome, with both Nvda 2017.2 and Jfw 17. I know that in each screen reader there's settings to turn audio indications on or off for entering or leaving forms/browse mode. In both cases I have them both off, shouldn't be doing this. I just got creator's update on this machine and the problem is persisting. I'm wondering if there's an update or some change that could be causing this behavior or if it's a bug? If so, any ideas i'd like to turn it off.

In addition, file explorer in creator's update on this box keeps crashing, i'll hit my account window which is called dave or this pc they'll open for a second or so then close as if file explorer crashed. This is occurring with Jfw 17 but as well as Nvda 2017.2 though it's happening less frequently with Nvda than Jaws, jaws it happens everytime, Nvda say once every four or five times.

This is an 8 core system, 32 gb of ram, running win10 64 bit professional edition.

Any ideas?

Dear friend,

You didn’t tell us that what screen reader you are using!

It seams to me that you are using Jaws and your Jaws is not updated.

To check your issue why don’t  you use narrator!

If your narrator is working fine, then update your Jaws or if you are using the latest Jaws, then uninstall it with share component and reinstall it!

Re: two urgent problems with creator's update on one of my computers

This may or may not be the problem but

You could check in the store app if you can to see if everything is fully downloaded and installed and up to date

 

You could use search to open the store app if you cant open the menu

 

Its a long shot but others may say “reset the pc!” but that’s not my way

Unless all else fails

 

Good luck

Re: FW: [nvda] Important directive for Windows 10 users:there is a reason why Windows 10 App Essentials add-on is out there...

Hi,

I get taken to the navigation button as well, but I just have to shift+Tab to get back to the messages! That is not enough for me to leave the mail app LOL! I do have another problem in the mail app. I have my messages in conversation view, and when I arrow down the messages in my in box, the conversation thread opens up by itself. I have to press the left arrow to collapse the conversation, before I can delete that conversation with one press of the delete key. That is a little bit more of a problem. These two little things, I have noticed in the mail app for two weeks or so. I have the latest version of the mail app and everything else, and this is using NVDA latest.

Hi NVDA users,

Although this was brought up on another list, I believe I should better forward the following directive here.

Sent: Sunday, June 18, 2017 8:23 PM
To: nvda@nvda.groups.io
Subject: [nvda] Important directive for Windows 10 users: there is a reason why Windows 10 App Essentials add-on is out there...

 

Dear NVDA community,

 

Disclaimer: for new community members, I’m normally not like this, but I do sometimes right posts I believe folks should hear, as it impacts community experience and what not. So my sincere apologies for letting you witness my explosive side. Please bear with me for a second, as it is important that I talk about the following regarding respecting engineers and announce a directive for Windows 10 users:

 

In the blindness community (at least for members of various mailing lists that I’m a part of or lead), I became synonymous with someone who is willing to show patience until the end, especially when resolving tech support problems. But there is a hidden side to that: for certain things, I become a volcano, and those who’ve witnessed my lava flow knows what I mean. Unfortunately, I believe it is time that I explode yet again (my apologies to our dear leaders for doing something like this):

 

Answering questions: for many situations, when resolving issues, when I and other engineers ask you questions in hopes of getting to the meat of the burger. Sometimes we may ask you to tell us steps to reproduce the given problem, what a screen reader says, and what not. When developers ask you questions, please do your best to answer them if possible.

 

For Windows 10 users: there is an important reason why I wrote Windows 10 App Essentials: to prevent issues like the one Rosemarie and others have experienced with Mail app. Hence the following directive:

 

Until now, it was optional for you to use Windows 10 app Essentials add-on if you are using Windows 10. I’ll make this an important requirement starting from fall 2017. That is, starting from September 2017, when you report issues like the one Rosemarie has experienced, I’ll no longer ask you to install latest WinTenApps add-on: I’ll assume that you have. For Windows Insiders, this is a critical (and mandatory) requirement.

 

I’m not announcing this directive just because I feel like doing it, nor to increase popularity of my brainchild: Windows 10 App Essentials add-on exists for important reasons:

 

  • Workarounds for issues encountered by NVDA users when using Windows 10, including various UI Automation issues.
  • Respond to changes in accessibility of various apps such as removing workarounds put in place in past versions.
  • Respond to app executable name changes (Microsoft has changed names of at least three universal app executables).
  • Provide essential features for Windows 10 users, including suggestions announcement, emoji panel support (Fall Creators Update), Edge notification announcements and others.
  • To prove to Microsoft and third-party universal app developers that accessibility should be a core design criteria for apps, including letting screen reader users use apps to their full potential.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Subject: [win10] Aggrigating 2 audio devices

 

OK, here’s my issue.

 

I am not in the studio today, however I have a recording which needs to be made on a Windows 10 machine.

 

Somehow, I need to figure out a way to not only record my voice from my USB Logitech headset, but I also need to be able to record my speech. I really don’t want to use my Olympus to do this, as I need something which is slightly better quality than that.

 

I completely understand about Stereo Mix and what some older audio devices called What You Hear, but take it from an audio pro. I know that isn’t going to totally work here, as far as I’m aware.

 

The problem is, in order for that to work, I’d need to somehow first bridge both audio devices together into one.

 

The headset doesn’t support Stereo Mix natively. All it has is one input channel which is obviously the microphone itself.

 

So, I need to somehow make a device input which would contain the input from the headset’s mike, but also the output of my system audio. Then, once aggrigated together, I could select it in Sound settings within Windows 10, then just record with SoundForge or whatever accordingly.

 

Before anyone gives me a little trick that is software DAW specific, let me state that I don’t have my copy of Reaper on this machine.

 

All I have on here is SoundForge, and it’s an older version. I wanna say V10 Pro. I might have GoldWave, but I don’t think so.

 

I know about the program called Virtual Audio Cable, but I tried using it once, and though I know it would do precisely what I need, I couldn’t figure the blasted thing out to save my life, even after reading its documentation several times through.

 

Not only that, but right now, I can’t afford it, plus, don’t have time to be learning new software before the deadline of getting this done.

 

Fortunately, that deadline is a few days from now, so if I really must, I’ll just wait and do it in the studio tomorrow with my ProTools rig, but I’d really rather get it done today, since I have the time to do so.

 

Before anyone says, “This would be better on something like Midimag, or the PC-Audio list,” let me state that this actually is! totally on topic for this list, and the reason is because, I’m not so much asking how to do this with 3rd party software. I’d more like to do it natively with Windows 10 if possible.

 

I’ll go! the 3rd party route, as long as it’s not VAC, don’t get me wrong, but I really would rather not if I can help it.

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

 

Chris.

Hi Chris!

I just used Carlos’s Virtual recorder, and it does exactly what you want to do!

That is great!

I might a figured something out though.

 

It looks like the app called Virtual Recorder will do exactly what I was needing.

Re: Mail app and screen readers: comments and bug reports please

Hi Matthew!

If you are in the mail app before you send the message:

Just enter on the account you want to send it from by tabbing to the list of accounts, and entering on the one you want. If you want to send an email from a web site, and the mail app is your default app for mail, it will ask you which account you want to send your message from, and you can shift tab and choose the account. So, it depends on whether or not you are in the email app or not when you want to send a message!

I hope that is more clear!

                When I’m replying this email with NVDA,

I’m facing 3 problems.

1.

When I press enter for the next line it doesn’t say anything.

2.

When I press back space, it doesn’t say anything.

3.

When I press control r,

And start writing the word dear pressing shift+d, it says no previous element.

To start typing, I always have to press tab key and  shift tab then  I can start typing anything!

Please note one important thing!

I have tested it with Jaws and with narrator  found out that everything is fine!

Disk Cleanup

First, where do I find Disk Cleanup in Win10 version 1703?

Can I perform a disk cleanup without deleting my cookies? If so, how? What do I have to do to make sure my cookies and website logins are preserved?

A question concerning editing power options

Melissa Jean <Melissa.J.Hammitt@...>
 

I’m having an issue when it comes to the power saver options with
windows 10. I’m using:
Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.1358)
NVDA 2017.1 and the latest update for Windows Essentials add-on
A while back my computer decided to change itself to turn completely
off after 20 minutes. I some how had switched it back to what I had it
on, barely, which is to go to sleep after an hour of activity. (At
least I think that is what I did.)
Recently it has now reverted to just staying on 24/7 and when I went
to change this I couldn’t do much of anything with the options. I do
windows I
search for power to get to power and sleep settings
The first option I get is when plugged in turn off after: then I get a
combo box and it is set on never or I can go up or down to select the
duration.
I hit tab again and get additional power settings link, which I click
on and a window pops up for control panel options, power options and
just by arrowing down I have these options:
choose what the power buttons do.
create a power plan
Choose when to turn off the display
personalization
user accounts
When I hit tab I get power options help then a line about what a power
plan is and a list of plans.
I have balanced (recommended) checked
power saver
power options, show additional plans button
and the button to go up in the control panel options.

I clicked on: Choose when to turn off the display and get a window
where it says to edit the plan settings The first option is to turn
off the display, plugged in, and it is set to never. I can arrow to
the left, right, up, or down and it will cycle through the options I
have to set the duration. I thought I would’ve been given a chance to
choose different aspects of the computer like hard disk, display, or
heck I can’t remember the options just that I know there is more than
one.
If I tab once I get a button that gives the option to change advanced
power settings. There another window pops up to let me edit the
current power plan, which is balanced.
I tab once and get a treeview that says never, right arrow 1 of 2.
)the default for balance is 20 minutes)
I hit the up arrow and get: level 1 turn off hard disk (expanded)
after then when I arrow down it says level 2 never. If I hit left
arrow to close it, there are no options above that, and the first
option I get when I arrow down is
Internet explorer (collapsed)
desktop background settings (collapsed)
wireless adaptor settings (collapsed)
sleep (collapsed)
when I expand this one I get:
hibernate> which I have set on never
allow wake timers > then it has the option to enable
USB settings (collapsed)
power buttons and lid (collapsed)
this gave me the options to select what my power and sleep buttons do
and I left them as is
PCI Express (collapsed)
processor power management (collapsed)
display (collapsed)
multimedia settings (collapsed)
I opened the other options, but didn’t see anything that I could
understand so I let themalone.
The only difference that I can think of, since I don’t do a whole lot
of stuff on my computer, is that I installed the Window Essentials
add-on for NVDA. (it is up to date) I have version 2017.1, I had
2017.2 but a while back things were running slow so I reverted back to
the version I am on now. Is some one able to give me the directions to
do what I am wanting to do? I’m just wanting to change it so that my
computer goes to sleep after an hour. I know that I am missing
something, but for the life of me I can’t figure out what I am
missing.

thanks bunches

outlook 2007 jaws - window-eyes not reading when composing email

Jim Ruby <jim@...>
 

Hi,

After the creaters update I can no longer hear text when composing email and
I'm not sure what changed. I changed back to window-eyes to be sure all
office ad-ins and office helper ad-ins are working and they are, but still
when moving up/down with arrow keys I don't hear anything but a kind of beep
sound. I've looked through the outlook settings and all looks ok, any
suggestions? I must be over looking something.


Re: Fine-Grained Control Over the Group Messages You Receive from Groups.io

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Cher,

           I now have an answer back, and it makes infinite sense.

           The links I listed before are for your random generic message or digest when no advanced features are set up.

            If you set up "Following Only" along with "First Message Also" the first message you receive will have a "Follow This Topic" link where the "Mute This Topic" link is in a regular message, because other than the first message, all the rest are automatically effectively muted if you don't elect to follow the topic.

            In the followed messages you receive in the position where "Mute This Topic" would appear in a regular message will be replaced with "Unfollow this Topic," which effectively mutes a topic when you stop following it with the "Following Only" feature enabled.

            Mark is avoiding putting in place holders or links that make no sense based upon the settings you have set up to control message flow.
