Oh, if she can't even get it open, then the only thing to do is call Apple Accessibility to see if she can use another user name for Apple password for Apple and passcode for tablet also fingerprint ID.

Group,


I have a good friend whose Mom passed away unexpectedly last year. In going through her things she found an I Pad that is fairly new, but she can not gain access to it.


What must my friend do to be able to gain access to this almost new IPad?


Thanks for your help and advice.

Someone needs to go into Settings on the iPad, then Accessibilities, then VoiceOver, and activate it. VOILA, green light, she's all ready to go!

Re: Recommendations for a new laptop

Hi Kathy.

 

In my experience, as one who uses jaws and the Microsoft office suite all the time, I can state that the two features that will make you happy are a solid state hard drive, and 16 gig of ram. Sure it is true that 8 gig will suffice, but I have 16 ram and solid state hard drives in all of my computers now and they work great. The difference in cost between 8 gig of ram and 16 gig is almost negligible.

Re: Recommendations for a new laptop

You don’t need a powerful computer to do what you want to do.  Most computers today come with 8gb of ram and you don’t need more.  You aren’t using any memory intensive applications that might bring you even close to using 8gb of RAM.  I haven’t priced various laptops or kept up with different models for a long time, but I doubt you will have to spend more than five or six hundred dollars to get a laptop that will fill your needs well.  I’ll let others discuss the question further.

Re: Sending a private message using Thunderbird

Gene
 

I specifically say to shift tab and then tab.  If you shift tab and continue to shift tab, as you suggest, you will move through all links in a message starting from the bottom link moving backwards through all the links.  If you shift tab once, then tab, you will be in the from line, which is what I say to do.

Oops, slight correction.  When you open a new message with Control-N, shift-tab from the top of the message body until you land on the "to" field and then press Control-V to paste in the address of the sender.

You are now on the from line.
Open the context menu. 
Down arrow to the item that says something like compose message to and press enter.
A new message will be created and you will be on the subject line.
Shiftt tab to the to line and left arrow once.  Then press enter.
You can now edit the address.
Press home.
Right arrow until you get to the less than sign. 
Hold shift and press home again.  Then press delete.
Right arrow to the equals sign.  Then right arrow one more time.
Backspace once to remove the equals sign. 
Type the at sign.
Then right arrow to the end of the proper e-mail address.  In my case, it would be gmail.com.
There is more after the correct proper address.  Delete it. 
If you right arrow once beyond the end of the proper e-mail address, you will be on another at sign. 
Use shift end then press delete.
You now have the correct address with nothing extraneous.
This may sound a bit complex and cumbersome but if you try it a few times, you will see that it isn’t bad even though it’s a little cumbersome.
If you are practicing, to remove the practice message, use alt f4 then tab once and press the space bar.

Since the topic of how to send private messages to list members has come up, I did a little experimentation and I found what may well be the easiest way if you are using Thunderbird.  Do the following:
Open the message from the person you want to reply to.
Shift tab once.  You will either be on a link or you will hear nothing.
Either way, tab once.
You are on the from line.
Open the context menu.
You will see many items.

Re: Sending a private message using Thunderbird

Gene
 

I wouldn’t assume that will always work.  For technical reasons that have to do with list serves getting aroundd spam prevention measures, I believe some e-mail addresses may not be shown in usable form.  And if your method works, then my method will work for a message.  If Your method doesn’t work, mine won’t.
 
If you look at what I believe is my previous message, you will see that I said that using a method I describe may work for a lot of addresses and then I give another method.  If you have to edit the address as I describe using my method, you would have to paste the clipboard address into a blank message and edit it in just the same way.
 
What I am not sure of is whether the method I give in my prevvious message works for all addresses or only for a lot so people should have access to both methods I describe in that message.

Group,


I have a good friend whose Mom passed away unexpectedly last year. In going through her things she found an I Pad that is fairly new, but she can not gain access to it.


What must my friend do to be able to gain access to this almost new IPad?


Thanks for your help and advice.

Hi Ashley!

My name is Val, and I would also be glad of your help regarding my Ipad.


Just reply to this email, and it should come to me.


Thanks.


Val.

Re: how to get access to an IPad

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 groups.io 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.

Re: how to get access to an IPad

Hi!

I was also given an ipad which had already been set up, this was given to all vulnerable customers in Scotland by the government.

Unfortunately the guy who set it up, did not give me an apple i.d or password.

Ofcourse, when I had an update recently, I couldn't sign back in.

Help on this would be appreciated.

Gene, thanks so much for the helpful info.  I am about to leave the computer until late am in the morning.  I have used my VRStream to record things like instructions before.


Thanks again for the info!

If you follow notes on the computer, alt tabbing  between the window with the notes and back to the window where you are following the procedure, the notes won't work as described. That's because every time you open the menu and tab away to look at more instructions, the menu will close.  So use notes not on your computer.

Thanks so much.


I would certainly appreciate your instructions.  Deb's Mom also had an older IPad...and of course, she can use it...lol


Deb is our church's secretary and she and I are good friends and as she is an only child (we are grown, not teenagers) we would appreciate it if we could get help in getting that almost new IPad up and running.
