Re: how to get access to an IPad

I didn't realize it was there, but checked also, and it is there! Thanks again, learning a little more today than I knew yesterday.

I just checked and reply to sender is present in TechTalk messages.
I’m not sure why you don’t see it. If you look again and still don’t, let me know and we can discuss the question further.

I’ll explain that I discussed how to send mail privately without using the llink because there are a lot of listserves that don’t have such a link. Also, people who read mail as text won’t see the link.

I also think that it is of benefit to learn more about using one’s e-mail program. It may help and encourage the user to look around and find useful things he/she doesn’t know about.

Several of the lists I am subscribed to in, there is a link which is stated as: reply to sender. This works quite nicely in any email client you choose to use. Could this be added to the TechTalk emails?

I found out that the more simple method I gave originally will work in Thunderbird a lot of the time. I’m not sure how often it may not work. So try the more simple method first. I’ll give it again below with an additional step or two and an additional comment or two..

If it doesn’t work for the e-mail message you are using, try the more complicated method.

Open the message.

Shift tab once.

Tab once.

Open the context menu.

Down arrow to compose message to, then press enter.

A message will open and you will be in the subject line.

Shift tab once.

Left arrow once.

You will hear the address announced.

If you want to hear it again, use read current line.

If it is correct, tab to the subject line, write the subject, then tab to the message body and write and send the message.

If you don’t hear the correct address, use the procedure I gave in my second description. Here is what you do:

You can continue to work with the same message. If the address is not correct, and you will know it because it will say something that makes no sense such as at at the end:

Press enter once.

press home.

Right arrow until you get to the equals sign. Then right arrow one more time.

Hold shift and press end. Then press delete.

then right arrow until the end of the proper address.

You will see a second at sign after the end of the proper address.

Stop on it.

Press shift and press end while holding shift.

Press delete.

You now have the correct address and can continue to the subject line to fill it out and then to the message body to write and send the message.

Let us know if you try my method. If done correctly, it will work.

but she can not gain access to it.
