That isn’t a standard extension.  Generally, e-mail programs open mail with an eml extension.  Based on the message you are getting, this appears to be  an Outlook Extension.  I don’t know which versions recognize it.

Gene,

Windows Mail App is set as default.  The extension is .MSG.  I’m trying to open the .MSG email from my external drive.   My browser is Brave.

Is the e-mail app or program you are using set as the default?  Check to see.  I don’t know why you are getting the message.  What is the extension of the messages you’re trying to open?

HI Heather,

I had Outlook 2010 on win seven, but win seven won’t boot up any more.  

I’m trying to open the .MSG emails from my external drive.  I don’t have Thunderbird, and I don’t know anything about Codex.

I was able to use the mail app and open my old outlook express from my windows xp pc. Do you have Microsoft office? I was able to use outlook to open them too. It will not let me say, use the e-mail to send a message but, it will open so you cant read the text of the e-mail. All my messages were in html format.? Just thinking, do you think a program like Codex will allow you to get the e-mails from that format? I have not tried this but, if you have thunderbird, will it read those messages?  Take care, Heather

Hello Everyone,

I saved several .MSG emails from Windows Seven, and I saved them to my external drive, and I am now trying to open the emails on Windows Ten, and every time I try to open those emails, I get a message asking me to update to Outlook 365, and I can’t get rid of that message, so there for, I can’t read or maybe I should say I can’t open the emails, I am currently using Windows Mail App.  Anyone have any ideas?

I would greatly appreciate any help.

I do not know how accessible these programs are. I am searching my old mail files and they are all HTML. I was going to see if there was a program to open that file type on my pc. I was hoping under program file types associations, one could select to use this program for that file type. Just curious, wonder if brave or other webbrowser might open it.

Re: I want information on the amazon echo studio speaker.

John Holcomb II
 

Well Jim, I’m sure that speaker would make you be able to hear it from pretty far.

I don’t have one of these speakers but its probably similar to how you’d set up any other  Alexa device.

Put it this way, my hearing is saver to profound, and my parents first  generation echo can go pretty loud.

Do you plan to use this speaker  just for drop-ins,  or do you plan to use it for music and the like, too?

John

Hi all,

If one of you have this speaker, I want to know some things.

Is it easy to set up?

I want to use the program called drop in. if I have 3 speakers in different rooms does it work well as an intercom? I have a hearing issue and I thought it might make it easier to communicate

Thoughts please. Jim

And when you try to install voices from the addon itself it wants you to download 1.6 addon version which is not compatible with 2021.2. I contacted acapela but got no response. If these voices won’t work I guess I can’t buy them and it says I have 14 days left in my trial so they should be working.

No,you have to use NVDA or narrator. I gave up using jaws with the windows mail app. Better yet switch to thunderbird if you can. Yes some of the key board strokes are different but, you will not have that annoying issue with the windows 10 mail app.  Cheers Heather

Hi,

I tried using jaws with windows10 mail. Jaws 2021 or latest jaws. And jaws won’t read email messages. I have to turn on virtual pc cursor and jaws still won’t read. Will they fix this?

Vivaldi web browser

Hay I was reading up on this Vivaldi web browser. I tried to YouTube to see if anyone has used with a screen reader or if their were notes to Vivaldi for folks using screen readers and I did not get much when I put in w3c rules. So has anyone used Vivaldi that can tell us how it works with a screen reader. Thanks Heather

[I received the following message from another list about a webinar this coming Saturday, October 16,  to demonstrate the ScripTalk talking prescription
medication label system, and thought it would be of interest to members of the Tech Talk list:

Hi Federation Family & Friends!

ScripTalk!

At Septembers Tec training, we had a discussion on how to distinguish your different medications. We thought we would set up a webinar that would assist
individuals on a way to do this!

On Saturday, October 16, 2021 at 10:00AM eastern. The Computer Science & Technology Division will have a representative from En-Vision America  to tell
us all about ScripTalk!

ScripTalk Talking Labels

If you or a loved one has trouble reading prescription medication labels then ScripTalk is the solution for you. This is a FREE, easy-to-use service available
at thousands of pharmacies throughout the United States and Canada that will read all your medication information out loud.

In the United States alone, the Food and Drug Administration estimates that about 1.3 million people are injured by medication errors each year.  For those
who can’t see to read their medication labels, talking prescription labels can be crucial to ensuring medication safety and adherence.

No ScripTalk users reported experiencing a medication error related to mixing up medications or taking the wrong medication/dosage since using ScripTalk.

HOW IT WORKS

A pharmacist programs a small electronic label with all your prescription information, including drug name, dosage, instructions, warnings, pharmacy information,
doctor name, prescription number, date and more. The tag relies on RFID and text-to-speech technology.

The pharmacist places the tag on your prescription medication and you can use a free mobile ScripTalk App to hear all the information read out loud. Simply
download the App from the App Store or Google Play, click the “scan” button and hold the bottle up to either the front of the screen (iPhones) or back
of the phone case near the camera (Androids).

Alternatively, the patient can use a ScripTalk Station, which is about the size of an old, portable CD player or phone message machine. Simply place the
pill bottle on the machine and press the “Read” button. The two triangle buttons on either side of the oval read button can be used to jump forward or
back through the prescription information. There is small wheel on the right side of the machine which can be moved to turn the machine on and turn up
the volume.

You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations
of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams.
