Re: .m4r sound files?

JM Casey
 

Normally I wouldn’t suggest this, but it looks like 9from a quick websearch) they really are the same type of file for all intents and purposes. So, try renaming the extension of the files to .m4a. if you have the right codecs installed, Winamp should then be able to play them.

I got a version from a friend, and a friend of his helped figure out what the problem was. My friend took me through a series of steps basically setting Winamp to be the primary player to open files of different types. I can’t remember the steps now, or I’d type them out.

I am presuming you installed the most recent Winamp, which is the beta from the Winamp site, and if so this will create two start menu entries, one for Winamp and the other for Winamp (safe mode).  I have never even played with the latter.

Did you get the "DJ Llama" announcement when you first fired up Winamp?  Did you nuke that file out of the playlist?

Tom,

Try installing the K-lite codecs pack, that should do it.

Re: Is there a way to reestablish WI-FI connection without rebooting a PC in Windows 10?

Blaster
 

Brian,
I believe you executed the commands properly and got the desired
results, You or others can correct me if I'm mistaken.

The /release switch is meant to remove your current session from the
router table and doesnt' return any text, unless you mis-type the
command and then you'd get a syntax error. If successfully executed,
it would return to the prompt as it did.

I believe the first block of text you posted is telling us you don't
have a USB thumb drive attached to your router for use as a network
storage device and all of these checks failed. So, I don't think this
really matters for what we're trying to do. As long as we didn't get a
networking error, I think we're okay.

The /renew switch signs you back into your router and post back the
status of your new session. It seems to give you the same network
storage error text posting first, But then you should get info like
your new IP address, DNS servers and other ethernet info.

Oh, and as far as the windows key and the letter R keys, I should have
said "press and hold" the windows key and "tap" the letter R key while
releasing the windows key to open a run command line, sorry about
that.

HTH,
Blaster

It really depends on just how you're "disconnected" as far as using IPCONFIG
goes. You can lack internet connectivity, but still be connected as far as
Windows is concerned.

Mr. Goldfield's method works more consistently, depending on exactly what's
wrong. Even that won't fix it if the issue is at the router and its

Hey there, Rebecca, Brian Zolo here in Gahanna, Ohio, feel free to call me B Z, grin!  When you installed winamp, what pluggin did you set for your output pluggin?  That may be causing a problem.  Another question for you: how do you like your dell Vostro 590?  We’re needing to get windows ten laptops at our house and am considering dell Vostro laptops.  If I can be of assistance with winamp, let me know.  Have a great week!  bZ!

Ricky,

When it comes to diagnosing vague error messages, which frustrate all of us, having a very precise description or preferably a copy of the message itself is really necessary. If this recurs, try to get a copy of the message. I believe it should be in NVDA speech history if it cannot be accessed by more conventional means.

Without that it's not going to be possible to venture even an educated guess.

Re: Is there a way to reestablish WI-FI connection without rebooting a PC in Windows 10?

Blaster
 

If you'd like to re-establish a Wi-Fi connection to your router
without rebooting the PC, try this:

On your keyboard, Press the windows key and tap the letter R key to
open a run command line.

Type the three letters cmd or the word command and press the enter key
to open the command prompt.

When it opens, Don't worry about the command prompt path that's
displayed, this will work from anywhere.

Type this command to clear your current connection:

ipconfig /release

then press the enter key to execute the command, this will bring you
back to the command prompt.

Now type this to re-connect:

ipconfig /renew

Then press the enter key to execute the command.

You don't need to wait for all of the detailed connection information
to display, just type:
exit and then press the enter key to exit the command prompt.

Blaster

Re: JAWS freezes when I close Word

David Goldfield
 

Unfortunately, this is a known issue.

I have read that the following workaround should remedy this problem.


1. From within Word press insert+v to bring up the JAWS options dialog.

2. In the edit field type "UIA" without the quotes.

3. Look for the option "USE UIA in Word 365 Documents" and uncheck this option.

4. Press enter twice to close the dialog and to save this change.


Here is the relevant help text pertaining to this feature.

Since Office 2013, JAWS has started to rely on UI Automation (UIA) provided by Microsoft,
in order to provide the most robust solution for documents in Office.
Microsoft is making significant changes in UIA in the
ongoing development of Office 365 and this control, when unchecked, gives users
an opportunity to rely only on the Document Object Model rather than UIA. This
could be useful for users who are using Office 365 and run into any issues that
might have been introduced by recent changes in UIA.
Restart Word after changing this setting for your changes to take effect.
