Re: how long should a white cane be?

Pamela Dominguez
 

Mine is usually up approximately to my mouth. But if the people in the agencies had had their way, it would have been somewhere between my waist and my armpit. I had canes like that ages ago, and I got hurt because they were too short. Pam.

This really depends on your height. A cane should
reach from anywhere from your chin to your forehead.

Subject: [TechTalk] how long should a white cane be?

I know that the length of a white cane is specific to the person
using it, but is there a suggested length standard? (from ground
to chin, I think that I remember taht suggestion from my O and
M classes).

Is that what standard you all use? I know that some people
prefer longer white canes, but I want to kind of have a standard
and then work from there.

Thanks

Re: how long should a white cane be?

They used to say up to your breast bone, but most of us blind people feel that it is too short.  The Lighthouse used to try to tell us that when we would go to buy a cane, we had to have it measured up to there.  A good mobility instructor told me that, when they were first developing cane techniques, they decided on that, simply because it was a measurable part on everybody’s body, and nothing more.  George and I would always tell the people who wanted us to have canes like that, that we were the ones using the cane, so we knew what we needed.  Thankfully, I have not had a person try that on me in about twenty or thirty years, now.  Pam.

Here's another program that could be used, but I don't know anything more about it except for what's in the message below.
 
Yes, it's called ABC Amber Outlook Express Converter, and you can find it at
http://www.processtext.com/abcoe.html
There's a 30-day demo version, but you can only convert 10 messages at a
time. If you purchase the program, you can convert entire folders at once.

questions re Windows 10 anniversary

Donald L. Roberts
 

Just got my Windows 10 HP desktop back from the shop where they got rid of some uninvited guests and reformatted the drive and installed the anniversary edition of Windows 10.


It is probably just a lack of familiarity, but nothing is in the right place although I am slowly making progress at getting things sorted.


At any rate, one of the desktop options is "show my PC."   Just what is this, and what does it do?  Using Window-eyes 9.5.4, when I click on this, it brings up UAC.  But, nothing else happens. So what should I expect?


Without asking whether I wanted this, the tech updated Malware bytes to 3.0 point something.  This is totally different from 1.75.  Could someone please provide a couple of pointers to using this successfully.  I admit I have given this only a cursory exam.  So I'll give it more time later.


Thanks for ideas.

The manual process requires importing OE mail into Live Mail and then exporting to a PST file. There are, as Gene mentioned, 3rd party software vendors that provide DBX to PST converters which is the most effective means of converting.

1.       Are you intending to import emails currently listed and being used in Outlook Express?

2.       Which version of Microsoft Outlook are you intending to use, 2010, 2013 or 2016?

I removed and readded the email account in 2016, and the message I get is

Outlook is completing the setup for your account. This might take several minutes.

Establishing network connection

Searching for kimsansong@... settings

Logging on to the mail server

Outlook cannot discover settings for your account

because a network connection could not be

established.  You may need to turn off Work Offline to

automatically configure this account.

Huh?

because a network connection could not be

I’m connected to the network here at work, so what is it talking about.

Re: question on reading e-mails

I doubt it.  Or if you could, that would just be a way to put them in another place.  Nothing needs to be done.  Just make sure that Outlook is the default mail program and pressing enter on an EML message, wherever it is, will cause it to open in Outlook.

Re: question about Verizon email services

Gerald Levy
 

I spoke to a Verizon customer service agent who confirmed that Verizon is in the process of phasing out its email service and migrating customers to AOL and other providers. But not all regions of the US are affected yet, and until you receive an email notification of the change, or else find a notice about it when you log in to your Verizon account, nothing needs to be done. I live in New York City, and have not yet received any email notice about the change,nor is there any notice about it on my Verizon account page. So I guess these instructions will only work if you have already been notified. In the meantime, anyone who wants more information about the discontinuation of Verizon email service can visit the following page:

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] question about Verizon email services

I got the e-mail last week and jumped through all of the hoops to save
my Verizon.net e-mail accounts. The good news is the AOL webmail
interface is much more screen reader friendly. The down side for me
was wrestling with the Verizon webmail interface. The screen layout
is a little jumbled so go all the way through each page to be sure
your not missing anything. Admittedly, I've always had trouble with
that website, so I'm not sorry to see it go away.

Here's what I did:

Login to your account with this link:

https://webmail.verizon.com/signin/login.jsp

The first screen asks for your login name.

The second one wants your password, and like I said go through the
whole page before you click continue.

I had a captcha screen pop up above and sometimes below the continue button.
A couple of times I got a security challenge question, very skitzofrinic.

Whenyou get logged in click on the "All mail" link and you'll be
presented with your two e-mail transfer options.
Switch to AOL and keep your Verizon.net account with all of your mail,
contacts, address book, ect. Or, create an account with any e-mail
provider and move it all by yourself manually.

I clicked on the button to use the AOL option and was taken directly
to the AOL login page, which had some of my information already
pre-filled into the form. There's a pull-down menu with an option to
choose which e-mail address your transferring, but what you'll find is
your actual address and an alpha numeric equivalent, I chose the
actual e-mail name and it was the right choice.

At the end of the form you'll need to either put in your cell phone
number to receive a numeric password or you can use your home phone
and receive a call with a pre-recorded voice that tells you your
numeric number. It's a lot easier then a captcha, that's for sure.

after that you'll need to set up your account with a new password,
your birthday and a security question.

If you use a mail program like Outlook than you'll need to change your
account settings.

Your username is your full Verizon e-mail address, like "yourname@verizon.net".
Your password is what ever you created during the setup.

Incoming Mail Server: imap.aol.com (Use port 143 for standard or 993
for SSL connections) POP is also still supported.

SMTP Outgoing Server Address: smtp.aol.com Set the port to 587

For a secure connection, check the SSL option for IMAP/POP and TLS for
SMTP in your mail program.

HTH,
Blaster

Verizon is indeed ending its email service, but is offering customers
with a "verizon.net" account to have support transferred over to AOL,
while maintaining their "verizon.net" domain. This is verified by my
call to Verizon tonight. There was supposed to be an email sent to all
affected with a link that enables you to keep your domain while support
is transferred to AOL.

How are people asking questions being informed that some change is
imminent? Certainly, e-mail won't be stopped. That's absurd. Are
these questions based on the "I heard" sort of information which is no
more reliable than rumor? I did a Google search for a phrase like
Verizon recent changes and found nothing.
I did another search for something like Verizon changes e-mail and
found nothing.

I am getting questions from folks on Verizon about them changing
something or doing away with their email servicing for private
customers. I am not on that system so I have no personal information
on this matter. If anybody out there does please let me know what if
anything is going to change along with what the average person needs
to do in order to continue receiving email.
