Hi.  Doxillion will do the job you need doing.  There is a free version and a paid for version but the paid for version is very economical.  If you have used Switch File converter then Doxillion works in the same way as it is from the same stable.  Walter.

Greetings all,

I am not sure if there is such a program that could help but lately, I’ve been attempting to change all my files on my documents to text files. I currently have them as .msg)from my outlook or e mail)

 

I have way to many of them.

I don’t want to change every file, since I like the option of going directly to a link and pressing enter to take me where I need to go, if I need to.

This is very helpful

I do have, for example, recipes and thing of this sort that I really don’t need to have them in msg. files.

 

does anyone know if there is a program that will convert msg. files to text? Using              

Using windows 10, office 2016, Jaws 2021  and outlook

 

thanks

Sugar

That is not correct.  I have never seen this claim and this reliable source refutes it.
 
If you could change the file itself in such an easy way, this would be well known because it would do away with the need to use a lot of conversion programs.

Converting files usually is not so easy as just changing the extension.  Document types of  files with odd extensions are usually created by application programs that insert control codes into the files.  These codes look pretty strange when you read them with a ASCII text reader or editor.  To really convert them, you need a program that can strip out the control codes and  rewrite them as a plain ASCII text file.

An easier way to do it is to open the file in the program that created it, then re-save it using the program's "Save As" function; and save it to a txt file.

Two cents worth; Anyone can add a few cents or modify mine.

Re: changing suffix on files

Jaffar Sidek
 

Hi Sugar.  First, i would suggest that you move all the files you want renamed to a separate folder for convenience.

Now go to your command line.  Suppose you have created a folder called fileRename for such a purpose on your C drive, then move into that directory by typing the following:

Cd C:\fileRename

You will here that you have successfully changed or moved into your desired directory.

Now if all your email files have, for example a .eml extension, and you want to have them as .txt files instead, then type the following:

rename *.eml *.txt

The * symbol signifies a wild card which allows you to rename any file type to another.  Try this and let us know.  Cheers!

Re: raising/lowering computer volume

I’ll add that I knew about the shortcut method but I hadn’t created one for years.  Being reminded of it led me to create one for the volume control and to create a shortcut command which makes opening the volume control dialog very convenient.  My computer doesn’t have dedicated keyboard keys for changing volume so being able to open the volume control dialog so easily is a real convenience.

Insert f11 isn’t a universal command.  it is a screen-reader command.  JAWS has this command, NVDA doesn’t unless you use an add-on.  Windows key b is a universal command.

the run dialog method opens the volume control dialog, the same dialog as the system tray method opens.  Depending on how you get to the speaker icon in the system tray, it may use fewer steps to use the run dialog.

Hi Madison,

You can press insert F11 or Windows B to access the system tray and
Arrow to Speaker and press Enter. Down arrow to Volume control and
press Enter. Use the up and down arrow keys to raise and lower the
volume in small increments. For larger increments use the page up and
page down.
You can also create a shortcut to the Volume control on your desktop.
To do this:
1. Go to the Desktop and press Control Spacebar to unselect the icons.
2. Pres the Applications key or Shift F10 to open the Context menu.
3. Press W to move to and open the New submenu.
4. Down arrow once to Shortcut and press Enter.
5. Type this text without the quotes: "sndvol.exe".
6. Tab once to Next and press Enter.
7. Type the name of your shortcut, such as: Volume Control and press Enter.

Now the volume control is on your desktop. Press enter on this
shortcut and use the  arrow keys or the page up and page down keys to
control the volume.

But since we don’t know how many people read messages and what they are using, JAWS commands should be specified as JAWS commands.

Re: removing an Outlook account

Thomas N. Chan
 

The only reason why it might not work if you try to remove the email account is, thats the default email  in the profile.
you either create another one, set it as default and remove the other.

else, we are all speculating  whats the problem.

now you can either shift+tab to remove, or, simply tab around.
you can also get there by going to control panel,

Hi all,
 I'm having trouble removing an Outlook account, I can find the button to
add an

Shouldn't there be one? If so, any idea why it isn't showing up, and is
there
another way I can remove an account? Using latest versions of Jaws, Windows

and Office 365. Really hope someone can help me out again!! Thanks Madison

















Re: changing suffix on files

Richard Justice
 


Just for clarification
the letters following the period at the end of a file name
are known as the file extension.
Example: .msg, .eml, .pdf, .txt.
 
There are programs that will do what you want, but as already suggested,
it is best to save them as text files from the program that created them.
 
HTH,
Rick

Converting files usually is not so easy as just changing the extension.  Document types of  files with odd extensions are usually created by application programs that insert control codes into the files.  These codes look pretty strange when you read them with a ASCII text reader or editor.  To really convert them, you need a program that can strip out the control codes and  rewrite them as a plain ASCII text file.

An easier way to do it is to open the file in the program that created it, then re-save it using the program's "Save As" function; and save it to a txt file.
