Shadow here. I have just said a sad goodbye to my ten-year-old desktop computer which was running Windows 7. One of the hard drives had failed, and when I took the machine to Columbus Micro Systems, the owner told me that it just wasn't worth putting more money into that computer--replacing the hard drive and upgrading the memory to run Windows 10. So they built a new computer for me (just the CPU) and the cost was under $400. My friend Tom Trinter has helped me to install software on the new machine, as it arrived with only Windows 10. I enrolled in a month-long Zoom webinar (30 minutes every Friday afternoon) with Access Technology Institute (CathyAnne Murtha). While I am no expert with Windows 10, I know a heck of a lot more about it than I did prior to that webinar. I have upgraded to Office 2013 instead of trying to transfer 2010 from the old machine, and have finally gotten Gmail installed on Outlook. Just yesterday, I finally got my Thunderbird account working with Gmail; I had previously used it with my Spectrum Pop3 account, but it is now installed as a Mapi account--just in case I ever become the owner of an iPhone. I still use a push-button desk phone and a landline, and have vowed to hang on to that landline for as long as possible. Unfortunately, I don't know of any tutorials on Thunderbird, but I will ask around.
I will call you, BZ, because I have been thinking about purchasing a microphone or headphones with a microphone to use on my desktop computer for things like Zoom. To date, I have been signing in on Zoom, and then using a Chicago-based phone number to sign in via phone. I've only been involved in one Zoom meeting where that arrangement didn't work because the Zoom class wasn't configured for phone calls. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper, but of course you know that it has never been about me and it never will!!
Do you know of any JAWS-based email lists? Mike B, from blindtech or techtalk, suggested two lists, and I tried to sign up for both of them, but nothing has happened yet and that was last weekend.
Take it easy, BZ, and maybe I will talk with you before the end of the weekend!!
