Re: For Those Interested

What happens if you execute the command alt 1 twice quickly.  Can you then use alt c to copy the address?  I've almost never used this command and it may work differently in different screen-readers because it's a screen-reader command.  But issuing the command twice quickly may move you to the from line and select it, thus allowing you to copy with alt c.

Gene, on this one, I hit Alt 1, to get to Rajmun. The copy would not work,
and the Alt enter would not work.

Best from,

Carolyn

Hi,
Is mine like the old school method? Here's what I do.  Do a reply.  From the
original message, I copy the address.  Then, clear the from field, and paste
in the clipboard.  True, with things like thunderbird, which only show the
name, this will be a miserable failure, but things like note takers,
outlook, I believe, and outlook express should allow you to do this.

It is always good to have different methods available.

  I don't know if this has changed but my recollection is that if you are
using window-eyes, you can't shift tab to the to line if you are reading
mail as html.  Window-eyes users may want to see if that is the case.  it is
in part because of that possibility that I gave the method I did.

  In Outlook Express and Windows Mail you can tab to the "from"
field even when you are viewing messages as HTML.  It has been some time
since I last used Thunderbird, but I believe getting to the "from" field is
not difficult in that client either.

    I haven't done this to any extent for a long time, but it is my
recollection that it isn't necessarily easy or convenient to get to the from
line, depending on the e-mail program and how you are reading mail.  For
example, it may be that when reading mail as html, you are restricted to
what is in the virtual buffer.  It appears that in Windows Live mail, the to
line isn't displayed at all.  If you shift tab, after many shift tabs, you
get to a button with the name of the sender.
    If you open the context menu and start down arrowing, you get to a menu
option that allows you to begin a new message to the person.
    I gave the property method because it applies to many programs but, of
course, it probably doesn't apply to all and if people want to send other
methods' that's fine.

    Hi Christina,
    You are certainly not breaking any rules.  Just so you know, when
messages
    are sent to the list you can see the originating address by opening the
    message and viewing the
    "from"
    field.  Although the specifics will vary depending on the client you are
    running, usually you can just press Enter on the message while it is
    selected in the list and then Tab or Shift Tab to the
    "from"
    field.  At that point, you should be able to copy the originating
address to
    the clipboard so you can paste it into the
    "to"
    field and respond to the person directly.

    Beth,
    I am interested and I am sorry if I am breaking any rules but I didn't
and
    or couldn't figure out how else to get in touch with you to let you know
    that I would like to join your list.  I mean I saw all the ways to get
in
    touch with you but I don't use any of those ways.

    Dear list,
    Have you wanted to join a blind people or disabled people's list that
    didn't include political affiliation such as the NFB, ACB, or any big
    time disability groups that may or may not promote access to one thing
    or another, or if you like openness in a group, then the group I just
    created is for you.  I searched the Groups.io archives and could not
find
    a Blind Students or Careers group.  I'd like to integrate both workers
    and students in one group as the disabled are a small community, but our
    group will discuss all kinds of access issues such as classwork and
    homework, social and club attendance, dorm life, apartment living, etc..
    We will also discuss what we can do as a community to improve access to
    university materials, but there is one thing: no politics. 
We do not
    affiliate or encourage affiliation with any particular disability
    advocacy or consumer group.  NABS is affiliated with the NFB, so we
won't
    mess with that.  But my group list is free, open, and yes, the rules are
    not tough and you will get to meet other people in a wider spectrum.
You
    may discuss any training centers, even the NFB ones.  But we can also
    discuss technology for students and workers as well.  So if you are a
    student or job seeker as I and my current boyfriend are, come on down.
    As a real tech enthusiast, I would love to see how many of us are into
    tech support.
    Also, one more rule about the group: be yourselves.  Talk about all the
    intimate stuff in private of course, but we can discuss big time issues
    that affect all university students or workers such as workplace
    bullying.  That settles it.  Anyone who knows someone interested should
    write me.
    Also, if you have any idea where the home page is for the group, it's
    under groups.io I shared it on FB and Twitter for those who have both.
    Thanks.
    Beth
