Re: accessible program that will allow you to restore your sound profile

Gene
 

There is no point trying the program.  The format of the Windows volume control changed in Windows 7 or in Vista and the program doesn't work.  It has been known not to work for years and I've seen that information in more than one previous discussion.

Hear is a program that says it will run in windows 7. 

http://www.soundcardpacket.org/3volset.aspx

Let me know if it’s accessible and if it works for you.  if you have the email for quick mix I will email them.  I would also try the program if you have it.

This is called Quick Mix.  However, it stopped working when I went to Win 7 so I don't use it now.  It was great, very accessible and easy to use.  Wish the developers would make a new version of it.

Don't think so - it just offers overall master volume recovery, so that if something else lowers your volume below a certain level, it will restore master volume to a pre-defined level.

Dennis, while this doesn't really implement a hotkey to do it, it can automatically restore your sound levels, etc. - the stascom utility suite from the following page:

Also offers some other utility functions - check out the documentation.

The program hasn't been updated since XP days or even before.  There is no reason to believe it will be worked on in future.

The program doesn't work in Windows 7 and higher.  I don't know if it works in Vista.  The entire design of the Windows volume control changed either in Vista or in Windows 7.

Re: reading progress down loads in google chrome

Gene
 

I never said that disabling JAVA scripts won't speed up a computer.  In fact, it's the only thing you listed that does speed up loading of web sites for users with reasonably fast connections.  Nothing else you have listed does to any extent except if you are on a very slow connection such as a dial-up connection.  then disabling images being downloaded will speed up web sites loading.  The rest of what you do is irrelevant to speed.  You shouldn't advocate or imply doing these things to save speed.  If someone is engaging in secret work of some kind or has some reason not to want people to know what sites they have visited, there is no reason to disable history or other such records.  It makes no sense to have cookies deleted on exit.  Often, first party cookies serve very useful purposes.  It makes far more sense to disable cookies, then allow exceptions and not delete the cookies you allow for exceptions.

Re: Problems with Microsoft office outlook windows 10

Louis Maher <ljmaher@...>
 

You can try to repair Microsoft office.

 

Here are some instructions.

----

If an Office application isn’t working properly, sometimes restarting it will fix the problem. If that doesn’t work, you can try repairing it. When you’re done, you might need to restart your computer.
For Windows 10:

 

Close all office products.


1 Hit Windows key + x

2. go to programs and features.  Hit enter.

3. Arrow down to Microsoft office.

4.Hit your context key and arrow down to change.

Note   If you bought a suite like Microsoft Office 365 Home or Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013, search for the suite name. If you bought an individual Office application like Microsoft Word, search for the application name.

4. Hit repair.

 

If running Repair doesn’t solve the problem, you might have to uninstall and reinstall the office.  This is easy if you have a subscription to Office 365.

Re: reading progress down loads in google chrome

 

i completely disabled javascript, when i need it i reenable it when i
realy need it and disable it very fast after doing my job.
i allow cookies but only first party and i set it to delete all
cookies after closing firefox!
i never save history and other informations which firefox keeps,
besides i set firefox not to load image and animations and with
disabling javascript, it helps to increase speed extremely!
specially disabling javascript is very essential for security.
i recommend you and all to read the articles which i sent there links.

what the results will be or want to experiment. If you are paranoid or have
some legitimate reason to keep sites you browse to private, you may want to
turn off some of these other options but they have absolutely nothing to do
with speed. If you turn off cookies, you need to know how to allow
exceptions. Some sites won't work or won't work properly or efficiently.
Not allowing any cookies including not desiggnating exceptions is a fine way
to havew unnecessary problems. I don't allow cookies but I have a number of
exceptions for trusted sites. This kind of extremeism, just disabling
things like this is a good way to have unnecessary inconveniences for no
benefit.

The
only way I am aware of to speed up Firefox is to do something like turn
off
JAVA Scripts or use a script blocker. Turning off downloading of images
may
speed up things a little and it's a good idea because images are used at
times to spread malware. Are you aware of the consequences of blocking
scripts or turning off scripts in the browser? Unless you are, you
shouldn't play with turning off or blocking scripts until you know more
about the subject.

It may be that for a lot of browsing, Chrome is faster or somewhat

avoid having so many interfaces be rendered as web pages.

Hello,
Once you have hit control plus J tab a time or two and you should
land on a heading that says today. This is the downloads you have
done today. The first one under this heading should be your current
download. If you arrow down a bit you will hear a line that has the
path where the download is going. This line will also have the
speed of your download. If you go down one more line you should
hear the percentage. It will be read as a normal number like 34. I
don’t think it says percent but this is the percent of your download.

Re: Problems with Microsoft office outlook windows 10

Gene
 

Have you tried running it with your old screen-reader running?  As of now, we don't know if the problem has anything to do with NVDA.  This may be a situation where you need to send log information to the list or to NVDA developers.  But I don't know enough about sending log information or what information to send to discuss the matter further.  But the first thing to do is to try running the program without NVDA running. 
 
A lot of people are running this software without this problem.  The cause needs further investigation.  Is it some problem with the way NVDA and Outlook are working together on your machine or something else.  Further investigation may give the answer.
