gmail on the web

Hi,

Not sure if the way emails are laid out on gmail.com if that’s conversation view which it appears to look like.

If it is how do I just put it in single view and not conversation view?

Just throwing random fake names out there, let’s say I’m on gmail.com, in the inbox, it says the following, message from me, bob and tom.

I have to click the link, and read the emails from me, bob and tom.

Is it possible to just open up one email at a time?

It confuses me for some reason.

Good morning Thomas,
 
Would this same behavior you explained with a smart phone happen with laptop computers as well? 
Thank you very much for your input.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Unfortunately, it's not the standard which will auto detect what is connected to the port.
For  example in LG Gram, you need to go into LG control center and toggle charging. when its off, it will do what it will do in reverse.
for asus and surface pro, that does it automatically 

I will connect that drive onto a USB C smartphone and see if the problem still persists.
and ask  the manufacturer  if there's a toggle.

This I wouldn't know since this is my first time using any type of a type C connection device, but I do hear the connection and disconnection sounds when using the USB type A to type C adaptors.
 
I would think that you would hear something, but when using just the type c cable nothing shows in Disk Management either.  Then again, when using the adaptor the drive shows as normal in ThisPC and Disk Management.

Hi Pablo,
 
I don't have any other USB type C devices to connect, but I believe you hit on the problem.  I think the external SSD drive may not be configured to connect directly via a USB type C cable.  The drive came with a, USB type A male to USB type C male short little cable that's  a piece of crap.  The connectivity sucked, so I bought the type C to type C male cables as a work around, but I also bought some USB type A male to USB type C female adaptors that work really well for connecting the SSD drive to either of my wife's laptops.
 
These cables are highly rated and neither of them work on either of her laptops when using the cables by themselves, but when using the type C cables with the adaptors they work really well.  So, your thought of the problem being a SSD configuration setting is a good idea.  I'll contact the person I bought the drives from and talk to him about it and see what his thoughts are.  Thank you very much for your input.

Mike,

Other possibilities should be cleared up, such as for example. That the USB C Cable is not working well, or that the External Hard drive needs to change configurations to be able to connect through a USB C Port, or that the port of your computer is not configured correctly.

Connect other 2 different devices through the same USB C cable you are using.

If this test works, the cable is not the problem. However, you should try to connect other devices to your computer using the same USB port you where using before. If the problems repeats. You already know that there is a problem with your USB C in your computer. If the problem no appears. It means that the external hard drive needs some configurations to connect through the USB C port.

 

Take care,

Hi All,

 

We have an LENOVO 81YK IdeaPad running Windows 10 Pro latest, but when I plug an external drive into the USB type C port nothing happens.  I do mean nothing!  I'm using a type C cable that supports both charging and data transfer, but nothing happens.  Below is what I've found that these USB type C ports are supposed to do.


Description
[1]
USB-C connectors (Thunderbolt 3 compatible) / power connectors
The USB-C connectors on your computer support the latest USB 3.1 standard and are fully compatible with Thunderbolt 3 technology. With a proper USB-C cable connected, you can:
list of 5 items
• Transfer data between your computer and peripheral devices.
• Transfer data between your computer and another computer (Thunderbolt Networking).
• Charge your computer.
• Charge your peripheral devices.
• Connect your computer to external displays for video output.

list end

 

Well none of the above happens when I plug my SSD external drive into the type C port.  I can access the SSD external drive if i use a USB type A male to USB type C female adaptor, but that's the only way.

 

Has anyone ran into an issue like this and have a fix for the no connectivity, or am I totally  misunderstanding the way this USB type C port is supposed to work?

All help and input is greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Re: NVDA email list?

Hi Keith,

I see Gene has given you the list details, but since you mentioned you are coming from Jaws, I thought I'd also mention the "Switching from Jaws to NVDA" guide: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda-community/wiki/SwitchingFromJawsToNVDA

NV Access also have training materials in the shop: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop But I would recommend looking at that switching guide first.

Kind regards

Quentin.

We have an LENOVO 81YK IdeaPad running Windows 10 Pro latest, but when I plug an external drive into the USB type C port nothing happens.  I do mean nothing!  I'm using a type C cable that supports both charging and data transfer, but nothing happens.  Below is what I've found that these USB type C ports are supposed to do.


Description 
[1]
USB-C connectors (Thunderbolt 3 compatible) / power connectors
The USB-C connectors on your computer support the latest USB 3.1 standard and are fully compatible with Thunderbolt 3 technology. With a proper USB-C cable connected, you can:
list of 5 items
• Transfer data between your computer and peripheral devices.
• Transfer data between your computer and another computer (Thunderbolt Networking).
• Charge your computer.
• Charge your peripheral devices.
• Connect your computer to external displays for video output.

list end

 

Well none of the above happens when I plug my SSD external drive into the type C port.  I can access the SSD external drive if i use a USB type A male to USB type C female adaptor, but that's the only way.

 

Has anyone ran into an issue like this and have a fix for the no connectivity, or am I totally  misunderstanding the way this USB type C port is supposed to work?

All help and input is greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Mike,

Other possibilities should be cleared up, such as for example. That the USB C Cable is not working well, or that the External Hard drive needs to change configurations to be able to connect through a USB C Port, or that the port of your computer is not configured correctly.

Connect other 2 different devices through the same USB C cable you are using.

If this test works, the cable is not the problem. However, you should try to connect other devices to your computer using the same USB port you where using before. If the problems repeats. You already know that there is a problem with your USB C in your computer. If the problem no appears. It means that the external hard drive needs some configurations to connect through the USB C port.

 

Take care,

Nancy, I have had a FITBIT in the past on a Apple device, and it
worked well, but when I switched to android it didn't read the menus.

I have one if you would like to buy it, please contact me off line.

Is there any FitBit or other brand watch that is accessible for a

Please share your knowledge with me. Also, if there is a more
appropriate group to handle this line of questions, please infor me.


Many thanks in advance for your support.

Yeah, I’m leaning toward getting the mantis. It seems like it would be the quietest and most versatile display available now. I am interested in the latest generation of the focus display because it’s made of aluminum and steel. However, the Mantis seems more versatile.

Thanks for the info,

Victor

the orbit reader is about as loud as somebody typing on a laptop keyboard. It is definitely quieter than a typewriter, but it is a little louder than something like a chameleon20 or mantis40 display. I use it to read in church with the display one to two feet from the microphone and it doesn't bother anybody. But that is in an open space. If you need something as quiet as possible maybe you want to go for the chameleon20 or mantis40 or a humanware display since the older piezoelectric cells an advantage to those is they are as quiet as you can get. I got the orbit display because at the time it was in my budget. But with this covid virus stuff, the price of the orbit displays went up to $650 now for their basic display.

Hi Nancy:
Regardless of what you choose you will have to sync it with a smart phone as there isn't a fitbit device that is accessible. Probably your best bet is an apple watch.

Re: adding a second address to my amazon account

From what I understand, you just need to add the new address.
You can put the person's name on it.

I did it on my amazon account with a few recipients .

I didn’t think it was quiet. I had read somewhere that it made a lot of noise. I work in radio broadcasting and audio production. That would not be a good display for my particular line of work. I’ve read somewhere that the mantis is very quiet. It’s too bad that the orbit is so noisy. When you are around other people, you don’t necessarily want a display that’s going to be a distraction to them. Why draw attention to yourself if you don’t need to do so?

Thanks for the info,

Victor

No it is not. It makes a telegraph sound or like a type writer sound. If you want quiet,  brailliant or focuss display. I do not think the hense displays make any noise either. Heather

Is the Orbit a quiet display?

I use an orbit reader20 and love it. The book reading experience is very smooth after I turn filter dot7, on, wrapping, on, split words, off, set auto-scroll, 2 or 3 seconds. hit space to start or stop auto-scrolling.
