Hello Juanita,
 
I’ve been through Gladewater a time or two.  I don’t think I recall your name from any other list that I am on.  So,  I will take this opportunity to tell you that I  can guarantee you that this is a friendly list with a lot of experienced computer users who enjoy sharing their knowledge.
 
Good luck to you.  Now, I am off to reset a misbehaving laptop.

In Outlook Express and Windows Mail you can tab to the "from" field even
when you are viewing messages as HTML. It has been some time since I last
used Thunderbird, but I believe getting to the "from" field is not
difficult in that client either.

I haven't done this to any extent for a long time, but it is my
recollection that it isn't necessarily easy or convenient to get to the
from line, depending on the e-mail program and how you are reading mail.
For example, it may be that when reading mail as html, you are restricted
to what is in the virtual buffer. It appears that in Windows Live mail,
the to line isn't displayed at all. If you shift tab, after many shift
tabs, you get to a button with the name of the sender.
If you open the context menu and start down arrowing, you get to a menu
option that allows you to begin a new message to the person.
I gave the property method because it applies to many programs but, of
course, it probably doesn't apply to all and if people want to send other
methods' that's fine.

Hi Christina,
You are certainly not breaking any rules. Just so you know, when
messages
are sent to the list you can see the originating address by opening the
message and viewing the
"from"
field. Although the specifics will vary depending on the client you
are
running, usually you can just press Enter on the message while it is
selected in the list and then Tab or Shift Tab to the
"from"
field. At that point, you should be able to copy the originating
address to
the clipboard so you can paste it into the
"to"
field and respond to the person directly.

Dear list,
Have you wanted to join a blind people or disabled people's list that
didn't include political affiliation such as the NFB, ACB, or any big
time disability groups that may or may not promote access to one thing
or another, or if you like openness in a group, then the group I just
created is for you. I searched the Groups.io archives and could not
find
a Blind Students or Careers group. I'd like to integrate both workers
and students in one group as the disabled are a small community, but
our
group will discuss all kinds of access issues such as classwork and
homework, social and club attendance, dorm life, apartment living,
etc..
We will also discuss what we can do as a community to improve access to
university materials, but there is one thing: no politics. We do not
affiliate or encourage affiliation with any particular disability
advocacy or consumer group. NABS is affiliated with the NFB, so we
won't
mess with that. But my group list is free, open, and yes, the rules
are
not tough and you will get to meet other people in a wider spectrum.
You
may discuss any training centers, even the NFB ones. But we can also
discuss technology for students and workers as well. So if you are a
student or job seeker as I and my current boyfriend are, come on down.
As a real tech enthusiast, I would love to see how many of us are into
tech support.
Also, one more rule about the group: be yourselves. Talk about all the
intimate stuff in private of course, but we can discuss big time issues
that affect all university students or workers such as workplace
bullying. That settles it. Anyone who knows someone interested should
write me.
Also, if you have any idea where the home page is for the group, it's
under groups.io I shared it on FB and Twitter for those who have both.
Thanks.
Beth

Hi Christina,
You are certainly not breaking any rules. Just so you know, when
messages
are sent to the list you can see the originating address by opening the
message and viewing the
"from"
field. Although the specifics will vary depending on the client you
are
running, usually you can just press Enter on the message while it is
selected in the list and then Tab or Shift Tab to the
"from"
field. At that point, you should be able to copy the originating
address to
the clipboard so you can paste it into the
"to"
field and respond to the person directly.

Beth,
I am interested and I am sorry if I am breaking any rules but I didn't
and
or couldn't figure out how else to get in touch with you to let you
know
that I would like to join your list. I mean I saw all the ways to get
in

Dear list,
Have you wanted to join a blind people or disabled people's list that
didn't include political affiliation such as the NFB, ACB, or any big
time disability groups that may or may not promote access to one thing
or another, or if you like openness in a group, then the group I just
created is for you. I searched the Groups.io archives and could not
find
a Blind Students or Careers group. I'd like to integrate both workers
and students in one group as the disabled are a small community, but
our
group will discuss all kinds of access issues such as classwork and
homework, social and club attendance, dorm life, apartment living,
etc..
We will also discuss what we can do as a community to improve access to
university materials, but there is one thing: no politics. We do not
affiliate or encourage affiliation with any particular disability
advocacy or consumer group. NABS is affiliated with the NFB, so we
won't
mess with that. But my group list is free, open, and yes, the rules
are
not tough and you will get to meet other people in a wider spectrum.
You
may discuss any training centers, even the NFB ones. But we can also
discuss technology for students and workers as well. So if you are a
student or job seeker as I and my current boyfriend are, come on down.
As a real tech enthusiast, I would love to see how many of us are into
tech support.
Also, one more rule about the group: be yourselves. Talk about all the
intimate stuff in private of course, but we can discuss big time issues
that affect all university students or workers such as workplace
bullying. That settles it. Anyone who knows someone interested should
write me.
Also, if you have any idea where the home page is for the group, it's
under groups.io I shared it on FB and Twitter for those who have both.
Thanks.
Beth

I haven't done this to any extent for a long time, but it is my
recollection that it isn't necessarily easy or convenient to get to the
from line, depending on the e-mail program and how you are reading mail.
For example, it may be that when reading mail as html, you are restricted
to what is in the virtual buffer. It appears that in Windows Live mail,
the to line isn't displayed at all. If you shift tab, after many shift
tabs, you get to a button with the name of the sender.
If you open the context menu and start down arrowing, you get to a menu
option that allows you to begin a new message to the person.
I gave the property method because it applies to many programs but, of
course, it probably doesn't apply to all and if people want to send other
methods' that's fine.

Hi,
Is mine like the old school method? Here's what I do. Do a reply. From
the original message, I copy the address. Then, clear the from field, and
paste in the clipboard. True, with things like thunderbird, which only
show the name, this will be a miserable failure, but things like note
takers, outlook, I believe, and outlook express should allow you to do
this.

is in part because of that possibility that I gave the method I did.

Subject: [TechTalk] Making Windows 10 Easy series availability and sale

Hi everyone,

There has been a lot of interest in the proposed "Making Windows 10 Easy with Speech" book, and we are very disappointed to have to say that production of this book has had to be put on hold due to unforeseen circumstances. However, we aren't leaving you high and dry just like that!

While the original version of the book, "Making Windows 10 Easy to See", does include topics on the Magnifier, High Contrast Mode and setting up large print, it also has an extensive section on Narrator, full keyboard commands for every task and notes for speech users where extra information is useful.

After additional testing and feedback, we are fully confident that "Making Windows 10 Easy to See" will get, particularly existing screen reader users through the upgrade and familiarisation process with Windows 10 without difficulty. We have worked with a number of users relying solely on screen readers who have used the book to transition to Windows 10 (including my good friend and IBM's accessibility specialist, Tom Babinszki, who wrote the Foreword to the book).

Because people are starting to move en-masse to Windows 10 (over 75 Million in the first month), and most of the AT Vendors have announced either current or upcoming support for Windows 10 (See my blog for more info and links:
https://22point.wordpress.com/2015/08/14/windows-10-15-days-in-also-big-book-announcement/
) , we don't want you to feel left behind, so as a special thank you for your patience and support, we are pleased to extend to you the following very special and limited time offer:

For this week, "Making Windows 10 Easy to See" is on sale, at just $20, PLUS, if and when the screen reader version of this book does come out, existing purchasers of Making Windows 10 Easy to See will be offered a copy, at no charge!

See: http://www.22point.com.au/publications.html to purchase.

Also, for any sighted family and friends, we have available the following books:
"Making Unboxing Windows 10 Easy" (Essentially the first part of the original book, but a little lighter and with less keyboard focus and without any of the "Easier to see" stuff) for only $10.
and
"Making Windows 10 Easy" (Essentially some of the later chapters from the original book, but again a little lighter and with less keyboard focus and without any of the "Easier to see" stuff) for only $10 - or both "fully sighted" books for $18.

Again, see: http://www.22point.com.au/publications.html to purchase.

Kind regards, and we look forward to working with you on your Windows
10 journey!

Quentin.

Hi Lynn,
Thanks and glad to have you here. Despite
differences of opinion between myself and the
owners/moderators of BlindTech, I wish them luck and
harbor
no ill will. If I don't resubscribe, it's in part because
I
think it was time for me to move on to something new and
now
that I've created this list I believe I should focus my
efforts here. I've never really subscribed to more than a
couple of mailing lists at a time anyway LOL just for the

True, with things like thunderbird, which only show the name, this will be a miserable failure, but things like note takers, outlook, I believe, and outlook express should allow you to do this.

I don't know if this has changed but my recollection is that if you are using window-eyes, you can't shift tab to the to line if you are reading mail as html. Window-eyes users may want to see if that is the case. it is in part because of that possibility that I gave the method I did.

I haven't done this to any extent for a long time, but it is my recollection that it isn't necessarily easy or convenient to get to the from line, depending on the e-mail program and how you are reading mail. For example, it may be that when reading mail as html, you are restricted to what is in the virtual buffer. It appears that in Windows Live mail, the to line isn't displayed at all. If you shift tab, after many shift tabs, you get to a button with the name of the sender.
If you open the context menu and start down arrowing, you get to a menu option that allows you to begin a new message to the person.
I gave the property method because it applies to many programs but, of course, it probably doesn't apply to all and if people want to send other methods' that's fine.

Hi Christina,
You are certainly not breaking any rules. Just so you know, when messages
are sent to the list you can see the originating address by opening the
message and viewing the
"from"
field. Although the specifics will vary depending on the client you are
running, usually you can just press Enter on the message while it is
selected in the list and then Tab or Shift Tab to the
"from"
field. At that point, you should be able to copy the originating address to
the clipboard so you can paste it into the
"to"

Dear list,
Have you wanted to join a blind people or disabled people's list that
didn't include political affiliation such as the NFB, ACB, or any big
time disability groups that may or may not promote access to one thing
or another, or if you like openness in a group, then the group I just
created is for you. I searched the Groups.io archives and could not find
a Blind Students or Careers group. I'd like to integrate both workers
and students in one group as the disabled are a small community, but our
group will discuss all kinds of access issues such as classwork and
homework, social and club attendance, dorm life, apartment living, etc..
We will also discuss what we can do as a community to improve access to
university materials, but there is one thing: no politics. We do not
affiliate or encourage affiliation with any particular disability
advocacy or consumer group. NABS is affiliated with the NFB, so we won't
mess with that. But my group list is free, open, and yes, the rules are
not tough and you will get to meet other people in a wider spectrum. You
may discuss any training centers, even the NFB ones. But we can also
discuss technology for students and workers as well. So if you are a
student or job seeker as I and my current boyfriend are, come on down.
As a real tech enthusiast, I would love to see how many of us are into
tech support.
Also, one more rule about the group: be yourselves. Talk about all the
intimate stuff in private of course, but we can discuss big time issues
that affect all university students or workers such as workplace
bullying. That settles it. Anyone who knows someone interested should
write me.
Also, if you have any idea where the home page is for the group, it's
under groups.io I shared it on FB and Twitter for those who have both.
Thanks.

Subject: [TechTalk] Exactly what really does happen if I reset Windows10 on a new Dell laptop?
 
Hi Group,
 
I would have to write a book to explain all that I have gone through with my 6 day old Dell Inspiron11 laptop loaded from Dell with Windows10.  So I will try for the condensed version.
 
I fell in love with the laptop at first touch but, the sound was terrible.  Loads of distortion and the volume continually changed itself all by it self.  So, I rolled the RealTek drivers back to the prior version and the laptop sounded 100% perfect. 
 
Then, Microsoft updates gave me the newest and latest driver update for the onboard RealTek sound which just happened to be the bad drivers that I had just removed.  Suddenly, the sound was all messed up again.
 
My next attempt to roll back the drivers failed several times. Then, I got MS to do a remote in on the laptop and they install the same older drivers that made the machine sound perfect again.
 
Carlos told me how to prevent MS from changing my drivers with future Windows updates.  And, I did that.  So, I spent around 12 hours getting every thing installed on the laptop. 
 
The next day, the sound was back to the same as the day before.  It turns out that Dell also sends out driver updates and this time, it was Dell who messed me over. <groan?
 
I ain’t all that great with even using some features on my computer much less being able to repair it when something goes wrong.  And, I have news for both Dell and Microsoft, I can break my computer just fine with out any assistance from them.
 
Since I had reasons to suspect corrupted files for other reasons that I won’t go in to right now, , I got Dell tech support to remote in and do a Windows reset.  I was informed by Dell tech support that the laptop would be in the exact same state as it was the moment that I took it out of the box for the first time.  I figured I could keep it off line long enough to set up Jaws, and change the settings to stop Dell and MS from helping themselves with making my computer work better.
 
But, after the reset that Dell claimed to do, I still had some files that I put on the computer.  I still had my log on password, the Jaws authorization key, along with other things including the stupid RealTek drivers that sound so bad.  I wonder if the Dell tech support person did an actual reset or maybe just a refresh.
 
So I went in to Windows and looked at the reset setting because I was considering doing my own reset. And it said that the reset action was the recommended  action for user’s to preform before recycling their computers.  This causes me to wonder exactly what the Win10 reset function really does.
 
Now here’s my point.  I want one of two things.  Either the computer to go back to the exact same state it was in when I booted it up the first time.  Or, I would be completely happy with a clean Win10 install with none of the original Dell software.
 
So, if I am not the first person that Carlos has to kick off of his new list for boring you all to death,  is there any one who can really really, tell me exactly what I will get if I reset
Win10 myself?
 
So sorry for what still turned out to be a book,
 
James

Hi Lynn,
No worries, I did not take it as criticism.  I know that there are other members like Gene for example who were also concerned about creating yet another list and causing fragmentation/confusion.  And while I agree with and share some of those concerns, there is a limit to what you can do when the differences in opinion about how a list should be managed cannot be easily reconciled.

Hey Carlos,

Just so you know, when I had advised not to create a new list, I was not being critical.  Was just trying to give them a chance to right the ship. 

But, this is a fine list and I would see no reason for either list to close down.  Even if I ever owned that list again, I would glad be here as well.

No worries you guys.  I have no plans to own that list again.  I'm loving my retirement from a nine to five job too much.

Hi Lynn,
Thanks and glad to have you here.  Despite differences of opinion between myself and the owners/moderators of BlindTech, I wish them luck and harbor no ill will.  If I don't resubscribe, it's in part because I think it was time for me to move on to something new and now that I've created this list I believe I should focus my efforts here.  I've never really subscribed to more than a couple of mailing lists at a time anyway LOL just for the sake of keeping the amount of incoming mail to a dull roar.

Carlos,

I like your rules.  They make total sense.

As the subject says, thanks to everyone who has subscribed so far and I will do my best to make this work.  We already have quite a few knowledgeable members who have signed on.  I would like to believe that I'm fairly open minded so hopefully this will be reflected in how the list is managed.  Don't hesitate to share your thoughts and opinions LOL or to let me know when I'm being an idiot.  There are really only a few basic rules.
 
1. Discussions , questions, and articles about all types of technology are allowed.
 
2. Discussion of illegal activities is not allowed.  If you are not sure if a particular subject qualifies as illegal, feel free to ask me in a private message.
 
3. Try to be civilized.
 
4. Too many rules become restrictive and cramp my style so just use common sense.

Re: Exactly what really does happen if I reset Windows10 on a new Dell laptop?

Awe, so nice to hear your voice again.  Has any one ever told you that you sound a lot like Jaws.
 
But seriously, I am going to try the reset right now.
 
Thanks for your assistance,

Resetting is basically like reinstalling Windows.  Only software which may have been included by the manufacturer is restored.  All settings and other applications will be removed.

Subject: [TechTalk] Exactly what really does happen if I reset Windows10 on a new Dell laptop?
 
Hi Group,
 
I would have to write a book to explain all that I have gone through with my 6 day old Dell Inspiron11 laptop loaded from Dell with Windows10.  So I will try for the condensed version.
 
I fell in love with the laptop at first touch but, the sound was terrible.  Loads of distortion and the volume continually changed itself all by it self.  So, I rolled the RealTek drivers back to the prior version and the laptop sounded 100% perfect. 
 
Then, Microsoft updates gave me the newest and latest driver update for the onboard RealTek sound which just happened to be the bad drivers that I had just removed.  Suddenly, the sound was all messed up again.
 
My next attempt to roll back the drivers failed several times. Then, I got MS to do a remote in on the laptop and they install the same older drivers that made the machine sound perfect again.
 
Carlos told me how to prevent MS from changing my drivers with future Windows updates.  And, I did that.  So, I spent around 12 hours getting every thing installed on the laptop. 
 
The next day, the sound was back to the same as the day before.  It turns out that Dell also sends out driver updates and this time, it was Dell who messed me over. <groan?
 
I ain’t all that great with even using some features on my computer much less being able to repair it when something goes wrong.  And, I have news for both Dell and Microsoft, I can break my computer just fine with out any assistance from them.
 
Since I had reasons to suspect corrupted files for other reasons that I won’t go in to right now, , I got Dell tech support to remote in and do a Windows reset.  I was informed by Dell tech support that the laptop would be in the exact same state as it was the moment that I took it out of the box for the first time.  I figured I could keep it off line long enough to set up Jaws, and change the settings to stop Dell and MS from helping themselves with making my computer work better.
 
But, after the reset that Dell claimed to do, I still had some files that I put on the computer.  I still had my log on password, the Jaws authorization key, along with other things including the stupid RealTek drivers that sound so bad.  I wonder if the Dell tech support person did an actual reset or maybe just a refresh.
 
So I went in to Windows and looked at the reset setting because I was considering doing my own reset. And it said that the reset action was the recommended  action for user’s to preform before recycling their computers.  This causes me to wonder exactly what the Win10 reset function really does.
 
Now here’s my point.  I want one of two things.  Either the computer to go back to the exact same state it was in when I booted it up the first time.  Or, I would be completely happy with a clean Win10 install with none of the original Dell software.
 
So, if I am not the first person that Carlos has to kick off of his new list for boring you all to death,  is there any one who can really really, tell me exactly what I will get if I reset
Win10 myself?
 
So sorry for what still turned out to be a book,
 
James
 


Re: For Those Interested

Carlos
 

Yeah not quite sure what happened there. I was tired last night when I was removing an account and trying to unsubscribe from yet another list. LOL I suppose it is even possible that I may have unintentionally resubscribed myself without realizing it.

LOL that is interesting. I thought I was unsubscribed from BlindTech, but apparently not. I unintentionally sent my previous reply there instead.

In Outlook Express and Windows Mail you can tab to the "from" field even when you are viewing messages as HTML. It has been some time since I last used Thunderbird, but I believe getting to the "from" field is not difficult in that client either.

I haven't done this to any extent for a long time, but it is my recollection that it isn't necessarily easy or convenient to get to the from line, depending on the e-mail program and how you are reading mail. For example, it may be that when reading mail as html, you are restricted to what is in the virtual buffer. It appears that in Windows Live mail, the to line isn't displayed at all. If you shift tab, after many shift tabs, you get to a button with the name of the sender.
If you open the context menu and start down arrowing, you get to a menu option that allows you to begin a new message to the person.
I gave the property method because it applies to many programs but, of course, it probably doesn't apply to all and if people want to send other methods' that's fine.

Hi Christina,
You are certainly not breaking any rules. Just so you know, when messages
are sent to the list you can see the originating address by opening the
message and viewing the
"from"
field. Although the specifics will vary depending on the client you are
running, usually you can just press Enter on the message while it is
selected in the list and then Tab or Shift Tab to the
"from"
field. At that point, you should be able to copy the originating address to
the clipboard so you can paste it into the
"to"
field and respond to the person directly.

Beth,
I am interested and I am sorry if I am breaking any rules but I didn't and
or couldn't figure out how else to get in touch with you to let you know
that I would like to join your list. I mean I saw all the ways to get in
touch with you but I don't use any of those ways.

Dear list,
Have you wanted to join a blind people or disabled people's list that
didn't include political affiliation such as the NFB, ACB, or any big
time disability groups that may or may not promote access to one thing
or another, or if you like openness in a group, then the group I just
created is for you. I searched the Groups.io archives and could not find
a Blind Students or Careers group. I'd like to integrate both workers
and students in one group as the disabled are a small community, but our
group will discuss all kinds of access issues such as classwork and
homework, social and club attendance, dorm life, apartment living, etc..
We will also discuss what we can do as a community to improve access to
university materials, but there is one thing: no politics. We do not
affiliate or encourage affiliation with any particular disability
advocacy or consumer group. NABS is affiliated with the NFB, so we won't
mess with that. But my group list is free, open, and yes, the rules are
not tough and you will get to meet other people in a wider spectrum. You
may discuss any training centers, even the NFB ones. But we can also
discuss technology for students and workers as well. So if you are a
student or job seeker as I and my current boyfriend are, come on down.
As a real tech enthusiast, I would love to see how many of us are into
tech support.
Also, one more rule about the group: be yourselves. Talk about all the
intimate stuff in private of course, but we can discuss big time issues
that affect all university students or workers such as workplace
bullying. That settles it. Anyone who knows someone interested should
write me.
Also, if you have any idea where the home page is for the group, it's
under groups.io I shared it on FB and Twitter for those who have both.
Thanks.
Beth
