[access-uk] Re: Removing USB devices safely with Jaws

Thanks for the tip Baldev and Caroline, didn't know that. Though I think following your suggestion, Baldev, the Display device components check box has to be ticked.


Thanks again both for sharing that with us.

Cheers,
Amro

Hi Amro

I find it easier this way because this list gives meaningful names.

1. Press Insert F11 for System tray.
2. Either arrow down or press first letter navigation i.e. letter S until
"Safely Remove Hardware" is reached.
3. Either TAB twice or use shortcut key Alt L to invoke the "Left Single
Click" button.
4. Select the device you wish to remove from the list by using down arrow
key and pressing Enter to select.
5. The message about "Safe to Remove Hardware" with an audible click will
now show up in the message area.

This way it includes the drive letters which you're probably familiar with
plus the meaningful name tag instead of just "USB Mass Storage Device".

Ok Christine, this is what you do using Jaws but I think the same applies
using other screen readers.

Press the Jaws key (insert) with F11 to bring up the System tray window.
Arrow down until you locate the icon Safely Remove Hardware.
Tap three times to land on the Left Double Click button and press enter on
it.
The Safely Remove Hardware window should open and you will land on a list of
devices that are connected to your computer. The Zen Stone will be on that
list if it's connected and it will show up as (USB Mass Storage Device),
arrow up and down until you land on it.
Tap twice to get to the Stop Device button and enter on it.
Now finally, wait a moment or two until a message pops up advising you that
the device was stopped and that it can be removed safely.
That's it you're done!

Now maybe using the Zen Stone software is easier if you are not familiar
with the above, baring in mind that if you have more than one storage device
connected to your computer at the time they will all show as USB Mass
Storage Devices in the list of devices, which would make it more difficult
for you to guess which of them is the Zen Stone. However, you can use the
above steps to stop any device that is connected to your computer through a
USB port should you ever need to.

HTH,
Amro

Hi Christine, the mains charger can perhaps become useful if you're away
for
a few days and don't have a computer. But I just wanted to point out that
there's another way to disconnect the Zen Stone from your computer
safely.
On the system tray click on (Safely Remove Hardware(, a window will
appear
ware you can then disable your Stone making it safe to be disconnected
from
your computer.

HTH,
Amro
