To Help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options

I find it quite annoying when I need to use a website and download files and Internet Explorer it always block the download and display a yellow bar shown underneath the address bar and say: “To Help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options” after you click on it and select download file, the page may refresh and you need to click on the file you want to download again

Finally I worked out how to get around this issue.

Solution:
Click on “Tools” –> “Internet Options

On the “Internet Options” dialog -> Select “Security” tab and Click on “Trusted sites

Click on “Sites” button
Paste the website address onto the “add this website to the zone” text box and click on “Add
* you may need to untick the “Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone” tick box.
Click on “Close” button
On the “Internet Options” dialog -> Click “Custom level …” button
Try to find the “Downloads” Section
On the “Automatic prompting for file downloads” select to “Enable
Then Click “OK” to confirm the changes.

The Yellow bar “To Help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options” should not appears for any site listed on your trusted site list any more when you try to download a files.

Windows Text-To-Speech – 電腦的小玩意 Windows 的 Text To Speech 功能

今天在網上學到了一個電腦的小玩意

就是利用 Microsoft WindowsSpeech Recognition Options 中的 Text to Speech 功能來讀一些文字出來
[暫時我只時試過可以讀英文和數字]
不知道能不能讀到中文呢

大家可以嘗試用打開 “記事本” [notepad]
之後輸入以下文字
CreateObject(“SAPI.SpVoice”).speak “ShareChiWai Say Hello to You”

之後把文字檔儲存成 “sharechiwaitrick.vbs
最重要的是把副檔案名 存成 “.vbs
要儲存成”.vbs
你要把 “save as type” 轉成 “All Files (*.*)” 否則電腦用把這個檔案的副檔案名自動加上”.txt

之後只要用 Mouse double click/滑鼠雙按 開啟 這個 “sharechiwaitrick.vbs”檔案
便會聽到電腦讀出剛才你輸入的文字

傳聞: 電腦也有男女之分的
看看讀出文字的是男聲還是女聲吧 =)
