I'm just curious, how accessible is Linked in?
I haven't used it in years. I remember that everything but one part was
inaccessible lol sorry I don't remember which it was but is it accessible?

Hi Michael,

Thanks for asking - I am on Twitter, Facebook & Linked in. I haven't got to
checking out Periscope yet and haven't actually heard of the other two (I'll
go look now).

I did have all my contact details in my signature and I was aware it got
shuffled down the bottom when replying on lists like this. So you've
prompted me to try something new - I've set it so the signature goes
directly below whatever I say (and above what I'm replying to), but I've cut
it down so it's not too long. Hopefully that will entice people to visit me
without being too annoying to everyone.

Happy to take feedback from anyone on what you think of the change - would
you rather see links to people's social media profiles directly there for
convenience, or just one short link (which yes, does link to all my social
media)?

Regards

Quentin.

https://22point.wordpress.com/ Instead of just leaving everything in
chronological order, it put a link up the top to the newest post, but
then have sorted that main page into Android and Windows and vaguely

an Android phone, unboxing, launchers, etc. More recently I've done
a few posts on Windows 10, particularly as I've been working with it

Hi Kimsan,

If you just created it two weeks ago, I wouldn't call it a bust
just yet. Is it somewhere people submit articles directly, or link
to their own blog? For instance I have a blog mainly on
accessibility, Android and Windows and I'd be happy to include a
link / info about it on your site, though if it was for me to
submit articles to you that's probably a bit harder (as I always

Write about it on a few email lists like this one (I don't recall
seeing you mention it here, but then I am on a lot of lists so skip
through things sometimes and may have missed it!) and facebook
groups etc, ask people to pass on info about it and include the

Kind regards

Re: Social media sites - was My blog

Victor
 

Sometimes Facebook is a pain to use. But if you visit m.facebook.com,
their mobile site, you can access it pretty easily.

Google Plus is pretty user-friendly, but it seems to be geared more
toward professionals who want to collaborate on different things.

VictorOn 9/24/15, Quentin Christensen <quentin.christensen@gmail.com> wrote:

Hi Christina,

With most blogs, there is usually a link to sign up, so for mine for
instance: https://22point.wordpress.com/ There's a "sign me up" or
"Follow" button, and if you do that, then yes, you will get new posts I
make via email. Some of the sites are easier than others to get around.

Twitter is good because messages on twitter are limited to 160
chararcters. You can sign up at www.twitter.com and it will ask a few
questions and offer suggestions for accounts or people you might want to
follow. So for instance I have a personal twitter account, but I also
have one for 22 Point - so you can follow individual people you know, or
you can follow companies, sports teams, celebrities, news agencies etc,
whatever you are interested in. Then when you go back to the twitter
site (or there are a number of programs you can use either on your
computer or a mobile phone) you can read through what the people you
follow have been posting.

Facebook broadly offers many of the same kinds of things as I mentioned
for twitter above - you can follow friends, celebrities, companies etc,
however there aren't as many limitations on what you can post, so you
can write much longer posts, or join groups which are a bit like email
lists but contained on the facebook site. Sadly, facebook's
accessibility isn't great, so it's often a pain to get around. Add to
that it's very hard to get it to show you posts in order - it keeps
defaulting to "random order" (they call it "top posts" but it's random),
AND you don't get to see everything from most pages anyway -
particularly companies, it will only show you occasional posts from
companies even if they post much more. I think facebook is slowly
killing itself by alienating its users.

How I tend to find myself getting into new social media or sites, is
when I see something from someone who posts there - eg Michael mentioned
a few sites I've never really used. If I saw someone here post a link
to posts they were making on say Pinterest, and I was interested in
that, I'd be more inclined to follow that lead and maybe sign up for it
myself and then see who else is on. I joined Ello last year as I had a
client ask me about it, and I see occasional emails from Ello but to be
honest I never go there and when I do I don't really find anything so
I've never got into it, so it's something where you really need a reason
to go to any of these sites AND needing reasons to go back.

Regards

Quentin.

Since the subject line refers
to a pop account, it\'s easy
enough to create a message
rule that will send messages
with your name or however you
identify yourself in the from
line to the deleted messages
folder. I don\'t recall if you
can create a message rule that
automatically deletes such
messages without them being
sent to any folder.

If someone is using an IMAP
account, you may or may not be
able to have message rules
that will be acted on in your
e-mail program. Some e-mail
programs allow rules for IMAP
accounts, some don\'t. But
with a pop account, any e-mail
program that allows message
rules will support their use
in pop accounts.

I can't specifically discuss
where things are located in
Outlook but here is general
information about working with
ribbons. It is part of a very
short tutorial I did years ago
about Windows 7. The ribbons
discussion starts below my
signature.

You will see a reference to
split buttons in the
discussion of ribbons. If you
want to know what they are,
ask and I or others will tell
you. My discussion of split
buttons occurs elsewhere in
the tutorial and it isn't
included in these excerpts. I
may add an explanation to
these excerpts but there isn't
one now.

Gene

This is an excerpt of a longer
tutorial. I've only included
the sections on ribbons here.


this informal short tutorial
is based on messages I wrote
to e-mail lists. You will see
repetition in the discussion
of ribbons which occurs in two
separate messages but I've
left the repetition in the
material because it may help
you understand points to see
both discussions.

Message 1

Regarding ribbons, much of the
complaining about them is not
warranted if you understand
how they work and how to use
short cut commands effectively
and efficiently. and I would
strongly recommend against
using the JAWS virtual menus,
no matter what the JAWS
training material says about
ribbons being difficult to
use. the training material is
just plain wrong and if you
use the virtual menus offered
as an option in JAWS, you will
not be able to use the
standard ribbon shortcuts as
well as having other
complications introduced that
may make ribbons harder to
work with.

Try looking at ribbons and
doing what is described below
in wordpad. Everyone with
Windows 7 has Wordpad on their
machine. Wordpad provides a
good environment to look at
and practice working with
ribbons.

The essence of working with
ribbons is this:
Press alt to move to the upper
ribbon.
You will probably be on an
item that says home tab. Items
on the upper ribbon are
announced as tabs such as home
tab, view tab, etc.
it's like moving from menu to
menu in a menu program. To
see what ribbons are available
in the ribbon, right or left
arrow repeatedly to move
through the items. Move in
one
direction to move through all
of them, just as you would to
move through all the menus.
For this demonstration, just
so we are all doing the same
thing, move with the right
arrow. When you get back to
where you started, you can
keep right arrowing to move
through the items again, if
you wish. You can move
through all the items as many
times as you want. Or you can
move with the left arrow
whenever you want to move in
the opposite direction.

To illustrate how to see the
items in a ribbon you have
moved to, do the following:
Stop on view. Then start
tabbing. You will move
through all items in what is
called the lower ribbon that
are associated with the view
ribbon.
Tabbing in a ribbon is the
same as using down arrow to
move down through the items in
a menu. Shift tab moves you
backward through the items.
It's like using up arrow to
move up instead of down in a
menu.

Many items in the lower ribbon
are buttons. Use either the
space bar or enter to activate
the button. You may find a
button that opens a menu and
if you press enter or the
space bar, you will then be in
a menu.

Each time you move to an item,
you will hear the short cut
command to work with that
item.

Let's look at an item which is
usually called the application
menu. Return to the main
program window in wordpad by
closing the ribbons. You can
either press escape
repeatedly, if necessary, or
you can press alt once. Now,
open the ribbons again with
alt.
Start right arrowing until you
get to the application menu.
You will hear application menu
and then something like button
drop down grid. Never mind
drop down grid. It's a
description you don't have to
worry about. The important
things are that you are on a
button and at the application
menu. Press enter or the
space bar to activate the
button. Activating the button
opens the menu. Start down
arrowing. you will hear all
the short cut commands
necessary to open an item or
take an action. When you got
to the menu item, you heard
alt f. When you open the menu
and move through it, you will
hear all the letters
announced. for example, if
you down arrow to save as, you
will hear alt f a. that means
that, when you are in the main
program window, you press and
hold alt, type f while holding
alt, then release both
letters. You have now opened
the menu. You then type a to
open save as.
Experiment with some of the
split buttons you will find in
the menu we are working with
to get a feel for how they
work and what they do. You are
in a menu so right arrowing
shows the additional options.
Left arrow moves you out of
the additional options.

Commands such as control o,
control n, control s, control
r, etc. are mostly retained in
programs
that use ribbons, though you
won't hear them announced. If
you don't already know them,
you'll have to find them in
ways such as by looking at a
list of keyboard commands for
the program. Such lists are
often available in the help
for the program. If you
already know the commands from
having used an older version
of the program, most or
perhaps even all of the
commands you know will work.


Gene

The following message contains
some material on working with
Windows Live Mail. Even if
you don't have or use that
program, listening to the
explanation may be helpful in
providing more examples of how
to work with ribbons.
Message 2.
First, is Windows Live Mail on
your computer? If so, you
need to learn how to work with
ribbons.
What I will describe will
allow you to work with ribbons
in any program that contains
them. I will describe how to
work with ribbons and, as part
of the discussion, tell you
how to open the accounts
dialog in Windows Live Mail.

I would strongly urge you not
to use the JAWS virtual menus
if you are using JAWS 12.x.
Virtual menus are off in JAWS
by default so if you haven't
turned on the virtual menus,
you will be seeing the actual
ribbons. The JAWS training
material claims that ribbons
are difficult to use. FS is
doing a real disservice to the
JAWS using community by
encouraging people not to use
ribbons and making claims FS
may believe are true, but are
not, about the difficulty in
using ribbons.
Here is how to open the
accounts dialog to create an
e-mail account in Windows Live
Mail. Seeing how this is done
may help you understand how to
work with ribbons in general.

open Windows Live Mail.
Open the ribbons with alt.
You are in the upper ribbon on
the home tab.
Start right arrowing.
You will get to accounts after
two or three right arrows.
Start tabbing to see what is
in accounts. Stop on a button
that says e-mail. You can use
either enter or the space bar
on this button.
If you wish, before you open
this item, you can tab through
all the items in this lower
ribbon. You will see a news
groups button and, I believe
one or two other items. the
news groups button is for
creating a news groups
account.
Once you return to the e-mail
button, use either enter or
the space bar. then set up an
account as usual.
You will find an application
menu available. It is a menu
from which you work with many
aspects of the program you
used to use the file menu
fore. and indeed, you can
open it from the main program
window by holding down the alt
key and typing f. One
important thing you will see
in this menu is the options
dialog that used to be in the
tools menu. Now, in the new
version of Windows Live Mail,
it's in the application
submenu because this submenu
is not a file menu, it's for
working with certain
application items and
features, ranging from save as
to the options menu.

Accellerator commands often
work in programs with ribbons.
Commands such as control o,
control s, and, since we are
discussing an e-mail program,
control r for reply, in short,
many or most or perhaps all of
the accellerator commands you
used to use in previous
versions of the program
usually work.

My recommendation is that,
when using ribbons, if you
know you are going to use a
command regularly, that you
make a point of remembering
the short cut commands
announced for getting to that
item, that is, if an
accellerator command such as
control o, control s, or
control r is not available.
You won't hear commands such
as control o, control s, or
control r announced when
working with ribbons. You
have to know them or find them
in other ways such as looking
them up in a list of program
commands, often available in
the help material for the
program.

Gene

One more note:
As you tab around to hear the
items in a ribbon, you will
hear things that are sequences
for opening something or
taking an action. If you are
using JAWS, many of these
sequences are not announced
automatically. If you want to
hear something announced that
hasn't been, use the command
JAWS key tab. you will hear
extraneous material but you
will hear the sequence
announced if you let the
information be spoken. You
will hear things like, for
example, h followed by r
followed by m. That's just an
example. It doesn't
necessarily respond to any
sequence in use but it's the
sort of thing you may hear.
So, if you wanted to do
whatever alt h followed by r
followed by m does, in the
main program window type alt
then h. then type m then r.

It may take an action, it may
open a menue or perhaps
something else. If you have
questions, ask on list.

GMail is not a typical e-mail service.  I doubt that the remove mail from server setting in an e-mail program has any effect on what is kept.  I also doubt that it has any effects on whether you receive duplicates of messages on other computers.  There is a command, the recent command, that you can place in your log on information so that you will see duplicates when downloading mail on another computer but it is my understanding that ordinarily, gMail doesn't download the same messages to another computer whether the messages are still in GMail or not.  Have you looked on line at your account?  I wouldn't be surprised if your inbox has lots of messages you thought were deleted.  GMail is intended and designed to keep thousands or perhaps hundreds of thousands or more messages from each user.  You can probably stop this, but I am very doubtful that you can do so with settings such as remove copy from server.  Such commands are intended for standard e-mail servers, not GMail.

Since the subject line refers
to a pop account, it's easy
enough to create a message
rule that will send messages
with your name or however you
identify yourself in the from
line to the deleted messages
folder.  I don't recall if you
can create a message rule that
automatically deletes such
messages without them being
sent to any folder.

If someone is using an IMAP
account, you may or may not be
able to have message rules
that will be acted on in your
e-mail program.  Some e-mail
programs allow rules for IMAP
accounts, some don't.  But
with a pop account, any e-mail
program that allows message
rules will support their use
in pop accounts.

The provider does not always

For what ever reason,
occasionally a message is not

problem with not receiving
copies of your messages is
that I have often seen members
become confused if no one

Re: quick pop question

Marie <magpie.mn@...>
 

Actually I almost never went to the web site after I set up my first Gmail account and after a couple of years I went there and found thousands of messages I thought were gone. So I checked and found I had not told the client to NOT leave a copy on the server when downloading mail to my computer. Then I went back on the site, deleted all the messages and now when I check there are only messages which are currently on my desktop, then after I delete the ones on my computer and go back they are gone from the inbox online.

GMail is not a typical e-mail service.  I doubt that the remove mail from server setting in an e-mail program has any effect on what is kept.  I also doubt that it has any effects on whether you receive duplicates of messages on other computers.  There is a command, the recent command, that you can place in your log on information so that you will see duplicates when downloading mail on another computer but it is my understanding that ordinarily, gMail doesn't download the same messages to another computer whether the messages are still in GMail or not.  Have you looked on line at your account?  I wouldn't be surprised if your inbox has lots of messages you thought were deleted.  GMail is intended and designed to keep thousands or perhaps hundreds of thousands or more messages from each user.  You can probably stop this, but I am very doubtful that you can do so with settings such as remove copy from server.  Such commands are intended for standard e-mail servers, not GMail.

If you set your email client not to leave a copy of your emails on the
server, they will only be on one computer. It is a setting on the Advanced
tab in WLM and I believe the same on Outlook. I prefer it this way so I
don't get all the duplicates. In addition, it prevents Gmail from retaining
thousands of emails on their server.

Personal preference and most places will tell you pop isn't supported but
that doesn't mean you can't use it.
The bad thing in my opinion with pop is if you delete all your emails from
the tech talk folder for example, you must remember to delete them from
other locations.
Imap on the other hand, reply on your phone, it will shoed replied on your
client on your comp and even the server.  Lol, I answered a few emails once
and someone was like why did you respond twice? I was like oops? I forgot
that I replied to that. This is referring to pop, though.
I have had pop for a few days and getting emails is rather slow compared to
imap but I'm in no rush and I can puff the magic dragon by the time all of
the emails are done downloading.
Just my two cents...

Is there a choice between pop
and imac accounts, and which
is better? I take it that
there could be advantages and
disadvantages to either?


Bye for now,

Since the subject line refers
to a pop account, it's easy
enough to create a message
rule that will send messages
with your name or however you
identify yourself in the from
line to the deleted messages
folder.  I don't recall if you
can create a message rule that
automatically deletes such
messages without them being
sent to any folder.

If someone is using an IMAP
account, you may or may not be
able to have message rules
that will be acted on in your
e-mail program.  Some e-mail
programs allow rules for IMAP
accounts, some don't.  But
with a pop account, any e-mail
program that allows message
rules will support their use
in pop accounts.

You know, this is one of those
issues which will vary with
different users.
I personally want to see my
posts on my lists so, as
Carlos mentioned, I can be
user it got there. Using Jaws,
a quick press of the delete
button removes it but I know
it posted.

Hello Carlos,
I just tend to think that
noone knows the answer.

Although, so far, both GMX and
gmail have been good at
alerting.

The provider does not always
alert you if a message did not
get through.
For what ever reason,
occasionally a message is not
received and is lost in
transition.  Part of the
problem with not receiving
copies of your messages is
that I have often seen members
become confused if no one
responds to one of their
posts.  They are left
wondering if no one has
replied or if the message was
simply not received.

Hello,
LOL, now you know why I'm
considering to get the gmail
back?
LOL, if
there's something that I hate
in lists, is seeing my own
message.  LOL, if I want it,
it'll be in my sent, or I can
CC myself.  And if it doesn't
go through, the provider will
notify me, anyway.  Or at
least, they should.

Hi,
You can't.  I'm having the
exact same issue with GMX,
gmail never sent own copies.

Hi.
The posts are coming through.
Maybe unsubscribing and resubscribing would help?
