Re: Gmail.

From a practical standpoint, without worrying about the explanation for now, if you are the only one using your accounts and you don't care about synchronizing mail on different machines, pop is the most convenient.  If you share your account with another person and/or want to synchronize your mail on more than one machine or more than one machine and device, IMAP would probably be better.

I really don't know the difference, but when I got Outlook, it was set with IMAP, and discussions on the list have enlightened me that there was POP when I had Outlook Express.

Newer does not always mean better and has nothing to do with whether something serves your needs.  POP3 and IMAP handle mail in different ways so you have to decide what features you require and which one is more suitable.

I strongly disagree... IMAP allows for the syncing of messages and folders in real-time, and POP can't even begin to compare... IMAP all the way here.
Of course I no longer use e-mail clients, but that is beside the point.

OK Carolyn,

The following takes the view that you have already set up
your Gmail email address and merely want to download email
via pop to your Outlook client:

1. Go to the gmail website and sign in;

2. Make sure you are in the 'basic html view' and not the
'standard' view, there is a link that takes you to the basic
html view and then once in basic view you can scroll down to
click on 'set basic html as default view';

3. Now press Control + Home to go to the top of the page,
press 'h' to go to 'Account Options' and then arrow down a
couple of times to 'Settings' and press Enter;

4. You will find yourself with some options, arrow down to
'pforwarding and opp/imap and press Enter;

5. Arrow down through the forwarding option until you get to
'Pop Download';

6. Press spacebar on 'enable pop' so that the radio button
is selected;

7. Select the option you want, i.e. 'Enable pop for all
mail', 'Enable pop for mail that arrives from now on', or
'Disable pop';

8. Arrow down to the combo box to choose how Gmail treats
mail on the web, best option is 'delete Gmail's copy';

9. Arrow down to 'Imap'options and select the 'disable imap'
option;

10. Arrow down to 'Save Changes' button and press Enter.

OK, that is the web side of things done, are you OK setting
up the Outlook settings or would you like the correct
settings?

John.

Re: Location Inquiry For Atomic Watches: Was: [TechTalk] talking wrist watches

Gene
 

I have a dumb phone, properly called a feature phone, not a smart phone.  Since I've had it, it and my computers are the only ways I keep track of time.  My phone automatically synchronizes the time many times when its booting up.  And the alarm is the most convenient I've had, not to mention that if I want, I can set four separate alarms.  There may be various reasons people want actual clocks these days, I don't know, but to me, the old talking clocks and Braille clocks are of no more use, being supplanted by what I consider a much more convenient system.

There is a very good clock.  I'm not sure if it's Cobalt or what; I don't
remember.  But it has a British female voice.  I have had it for years now.
That is the one I said a couple of other people I knew had, and couldn't
make it work.  I had said I thought that whatever it had for an antenna in
theirs was broken.  But mine has worked for years.  Pam.

My windows face east, and we're at the bottom of a hill.
Plus about 30 feet from the east-facing windows are woods -
mighty tall trees making for nice view. So this has been

Hi, ron,

There are many factors which determine how well your watch
or any watch for that matter, will update.

Most watches try to update at 3 AM when the signal from the
time standard is strongest. This signal does not have the
same strength from day to day. Solar energy and other things
in the atmosphere determine signal strength at any given
time.

The construction of your apartment can make it more
difficult for the signal to get into your own apartment. It
is good when your windows face west, toward Colorado (where
the radio transmissions originate).

My apartment windows face east. Signals will get through but
will be greatly attenuated. Even the best watch radios may
not receive sufficient signal to get the watch to update.
I'm happy if my watch updates once a week.

More could be written about this but I hope this gives you a
good picture of what's taking place.

I would like to know just where you are living.  The reason

my devices to update living here in the Buffalo, New York
area.  Only one device updates consistently.  I read
somewhere that people along the east coast of the US have
such issues.

you familiar with those spice container bottles which you
get at discount stores?  They're about 4 inches tall and
many have tops that either turn or flip open.  I found the
band stretches just slightly when placing one of those
inside of it.  As for the band, I broke one by turning the
watch inside out in the band.  I couldn't find a band to fit
it at the discount stores.  It seems to be special, so I
don't know if its resizeable or not, but I sort of think
your wrist must be larger than one of those spice bottles.
The watch I was talking about with the second hand having to
stop a second from the number 7, is the atomic watch from
blind mice mart.  I wouldn't get that one, as it requires
sighted help for setup.  Blind mice mart also sells that 4
alarm deluxe watch that future aids carries, but the
shipping makes it more costly than Future aids.  Oh, one
other thing about this atomic watch...  It gives you talking
instructions for how to set the time and date and
everything.  Pretty nice if you need to manually adjust it
because it couldn't see the radio signal.  I worried about
it not seeing the signal, and did the putting it in the west
facing window at night for a while.  Then I forgot, and
found it set itself even if I was wearing it at night.  It
will keep time to the second for a week or so anyway.  Three
pushes on the talk button will tell you if your watch is
synced to the radio signal.  You can also turn the watch off
at anytime you want to stop it by pulling out the time set
stem for the conventional watch hands, it saves the battery.

Braille Superstore too.  Then they were out of stock on the
things for about 6 months.  I took the plunge and ordered
the atomic talking watch they sell as its the few that have
a stainless steel band, although its stretch instead of
bracelet style.  I love the damn thing.  How great it is to
never have to set it.  It has a male voice with a slight
British accent, but is easily understood.  I've looked at
others, and one you have to stop the second hand within a
second of 7 or something like that.  This one, you just set
either the hands like a conventional watch, or adjust the
digital settings.  The watch will move the hands to the
digital time.  Then during the next night everything is set
to the U S government standard.  Read the instructions on
Future Aids.com (Braille Superstore) and see what you think.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase.  The price is $34.95
as I recall, and free shipping.

Pam, I don't believe Nimer is saying that POP3 literally causes problems.  Only that it is not very useful if you want to keep your messages synchronized across multiple devices, which is true.

Fair point. However, many people I run into these days have multiple devices, and POP just makes a mess of things when you are using different devices.... IMAP does a much better job at keeping everything synced with your e-mail server while still allowing for offline access.

OK Carolyn,

The following takes the view that you have already set up
your Gmail email address and merely want to download email
via pop to your Outlook client:

1. Go to the gmail website and sign in;

2. Make sure you are in the 'basic html view' and not the
'standard' view, there is a link that takes you to the basic
html view and then once in basic view you can scroll down to
click on 'set basic html as default view';

3. Now press Control + Home to go to the top of the page,
press 'h' to go to 'Account Options' and then arrow down a
couple of times to 'Settings' and press Enter;

4. You will find yourself with some options, arrow down to
'pforwarding and opp/imap and press Enter;

5. Arrow down through the forwarding option until you get to
'Pop Download';

6. Press spacebar on 'enable pop' so that the radio button
is selected;

7. Select the option you want, i.e. 'Enable pop for all
mail', 'Enable pop for mail that arrives from now on', or
'Disable pop';

8. Arrow down to the combo box to choose how Gmail treats
mail on the web, best option is 'delete Gmail's copy';

9. Arrow down to 'Imap'options and select the 'disable imap'
option;

10. Arrow down to 'Save Changes' button and press Enter.

OK, that is the web side of things done, are you OK setting
up the Outlook settings or would you like the correct
settings?

John.

From what I have read about the E6330, the home and end keys are on the
top
row and the page up and page down keys are just above the shift key
(really
strange design). Anyway, the issue most often commented on is that the
home
and end keys are so small they are easily missed and difficult to press.
Don't know if this helps or not, it may be worthwhile examining the top
row
of the keyboard more closely?

Good Morning,

I am using a Dell Model
Latitude E6330
System Type x64 laptop and
cannot find the end key or home key on this keyboard. There are both page
up
and page down keys, but no home or end keys that I can find. The function
key does not seem to work with any of the keys to enable the home or end
keys to function in either the desktop or laptop layout with JAWS.

In fact, the function key
does not seem to work at all.

I have Googled, and although
I have found information related to the computer and some commands for the
function key, I have found nothing that willl solve the problem for me.

Does anyone use this
computer and have a layout for the keyboard and a list of all the function
key commands that will work with JAWS?

Thanks.

This is what I found on the subject of getting rid of ads on the
Amazon fire tablets if one didn't get a no-ads version. Note that
Amazon may charge you for opting out of those ads. I myself just skip
over them. Remember that when it says to tap it translates to a double
tap for us who use VoiceView.

How to turn off special offers:
1. Visit www.amazon.com and sign in to your account.
2. Click the drop-down menu from Your Account and select Manage Your Kindle.
3. Click Manage Your Kindles on the left rail.
4. Select the device you want to rid of ads.
5. Click Edit next to where it reads Subscribed. Then click
"Unsubscribe now with 1-click."

How to turn off Amazon recommendations:
1. Slide down from the top of your Kindle Fire HDX screen and tap Settings.
2. Tap Applications.
3. Tap Home Screen.
4. Toggle to Hide the button next to Show/Hide Recommendations.

Re: Location Inquiry For Atomic Watches: Was: [TechTalk] talking wrist watches

There is a very good clock. I'm not sure if it's Cobalt or what; I don't remember. But it has a British female voice. I have had it for years now. That is the one I said a couple of other people I knew had, and couldn't make it work. I had said I thought that whatever it had for an antenna in theirs was broken. But mine has worked for years.

Hi, ron,

There are many factors which determine how well your watch
or any watch for that matter, will update.

Most watches try to update at 3 AM when the signal from the
time standard is strongest. This signal does not have the
same strength from day to day. Solar energy and other things
in the atmosphere determine signal strength at any given
time.

The construction of your apartment can make it more
difficult for the signal to get into your own apartment. It
is good when your windows face west, toward Colorado (where
the radio transmissions originate).

My apartment windows face east. Signals will get through but
will be greatly attenuated. Even the best watch radios may
not receive sufficient signal to get the watch to update.
I'm happy if my watch updates once a week.

More could be written about this but I hope this gives you a
good picture of what's taking place.

Hi Group,


For those who like this 4 alarm atomic talking wrist watch
and who are having success with it's updating automatically,
I would like to know just where you are living. The reason
I ask is because I have had a lot of difficulty getting 3 of
my devices to update living here in the Buffalo, New York
area. Only one device updates consistently. I read
somewhere that people along the east coast of the US have
such issues.



Thanks for any response.

Here's what I found is almost the size of the band. Are
you familiar with those spice container bottles which you
get at discount stores? They're about 4 inches tall and
many have tops that either turn or flip open. I found the
band stretches just slightly when placing one of those
inside of it. As for the band, I broke one by turning the
watch inside out in the band. I couldn't find a band to fit
it at the discount stores. It seems to be special, so I
don't know if its resizeable or not, but I sort of think
your wrist must be larger than one of those spice bottles.
The watch I was talking about with the second hand having to
stop a second from the number 7, is the atomic watch from
blind mice mart. I wouldn't get that one, as it requires
sighted help for setup. Blind mice mart also sells that 4
alarm deluxe watch that future aids carries, but the
shipping makes it more costly than Future aids. Oh, one
other thing about this atomic watch... It gives you talking
instructions for how to set the time and date and
everything. Pretty nice if you need to manually adjust it
because it couldn't see the radio signal. I worried about
it not seeing the signal, and did the putting it in the west
facing window at night for a while. Then I forgot, and
found it set itself even if I was wearing it at night. It
will keep time to the second for a week or so anyway. Three
pushes on the talk button will tell you if your watch is
synced to the radio signal. You can also turn the watch off
at anytime you want to stop it by pulling out the time set
stem for the conventional watch hands, it saves the battery.

Hi Terry, I use to use the 4-alarm deluxe watch from The
Braille Superstore too. Then they were out of stock on the
things for about 6 months. I took the plunge and ordered
the atomic talking watch they sell as its the few that have
a stainless steel band, although its stretch instead of
bracelet style. I love the damn thing. How great it is to
never have to set it. It has a male voice with a slight
British accent, but is easily understood. I've looked at
others, and one you have to stop the second hand within a
second of 7 or something like that. This one, you just set
either the hands like a conventional watch, or adjust the
digital settings. The watch will move the hands to the
digital time. Then during the next night everything is set
to the U S government standard. Read the instructions on
Future Aids.com (Braille Superstore) and see what you think.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The price is $34.95
as I recall, and free shipping.

Hi,

Looking to purchase another talking watch...the last one I
got was from the braille superstore or something like that,
worked great, but took me 8 months to find a store to alter
the size of the band and now one of the band pins has come
out and cannot find a replacement.

Can't beat the low prices of the store, but I guess you
get what you pay for (the bands are very delicate).

Looking to purchse a talking watch for under $35.00 with
either a braclet style band or a leather wrist band.

any ideas on where I can get something like this?

Thanks

Fair point. However, many people I run into these days have multiple devices, and POP just makes a mess of things when you are using different devices.... IMAP does a much better job at keeping everything synced with your e-mail server while still allowing for offline access.

The following takes the view that you have already set up

1. Go to the gmail website and sign in;

2. Make sure you are in the 'basic html view' and not the
'standard' view, there is a link that takes you to the basic
html view and then once in basic view you can scroll down to
click on 'set basic html as default view';

3. Now press Control + Home to go to the top of the page,
press 'h' to go to 'Account Options' and then arrow down a
couple of times to 'Settings' and press Enter;

4. You will find yourself with some options, arrow down to
'pforwarding and opp/imap and press Enter;

5. Arrow down through the forwarding option until you get to
'Pop Download';

6. Press spacebar on 'enable pop' so that the radio button

7. Select the option you want, i.e. 'Enable pop for all
mail', 'Enable pop for mail that arrives from now on', or
'Disable pop';

8. Arrow down to the combo box to choose how Gmail treats
mail on the web, best option is 'delete Gmail's copy';

9. Arrow down to 'Imap'options and select the 'disable imap'

Since many laptops do not have a dedicated numeric keypad, the keys starting with J on the home row can be used to simulate the number keys.  Usually the mode for these keys has to be toggled either by NumLock or an Fn combination which simulates NumLock.  However on your keyboard, by default holding down Fn + F2 + any of the keys starting with J will produce numbers.  Alternatively, if you would prefer Fn + F2 to act as a NumLock toggle, a setting would have to be changed in the BIOS.

mail on the web, best option is 'delete Gmail's copy';

9. Arrow down to 'Imap'options and select the 'disable imap'
option;

10. Arrow down to 'Save Changes' button and press Enter.

OK, that is the web side of things done, are you OK setting
up the Outlook settings or would you like the correct
settings?

John.

Re: problem with keyboard & function key using the Dell Model Latitude E6330

Vicki W
 

Well, you are absolutely right. The person I had looking at the keyboard missed them completely and when I used the JAWS key with 1 to identify the keys, I found it. I didn't think I needed to do that since someone had checked it out for me.

Thank you to everyone for the help.

Vicki

From what I have read about the E6330, the home and end keys are on the top
row and the page up and page down keys are just above the shift key (really
strange design). Anyway, the issue most often commented on is that the home
and end keys are so small they are easily missed and difficult to press.
Don't know if this helps or not, it may be worthwhile examining the top row
of the keyboard more closely?

No, those are the standard print and pause keys.

with keyboard & function key using the Dell Model Latitude E6330

Good Morning,

I am using a Dell Model
Latitude E6330
System Type x64 laptop and
cannot find the end key or home key on this keyboard. There are both page up
and page down keys, but no home or end keys that I can find. The function
key does not seem to work with any of the keys to enable the home or end
keys to function in either the desktop or laptop layout with JAWS.

In fact, the function key
does not seem to work at all.

I have Googled, and although
I have found information related to the computer and some commands for the
function key, I have found nothing that willl solve the problem for me.

Does anyone use this
computer and have a layout for the keyboard and a list of all the function
key commands that will work with JAWS?

Thanks.

Vicki






Re: Gmail.

Nimer Jaber
 

I strongly disagree... IMAP allows for the syncing of messages and folders in real-time, and POP can't even begin to compare... IMAP all the way here. Of course I no longer use e-mail clients, but that is beside the point.

Hi Carolyn,

Why imap? It's a lot more trouble than using pop, especially when using
something like Outlook.

I have IMAP, not POP. So, I am assuming there would be a
difference in what I would need to do. Presently I do have
my Outlook set on HTML.

OK Carolyn,

The following takes the view that you have already set up
your Gmail email address and merely want to download email
via pop to your Outlook client:

1. Go to the gmail website and sign in;

2. Make sure you are in the 'basic html view' and not the
'standard' view, there is a link that takes you to the basic
html view and then once in basic view you can scroll down to
click on 'set basic html as default view';

3. Now press Control + Home to go to the top of the page,
press 'h' to go to 'Account Options' and then arrow down a
couple of times to 'Settings' and press Enter;

4. You will find yourself with some options, arrow down to
'pforwarding and opp/imap and press Enter;

5. Arrow down through the forwarding option until you get to
'Pop Download';

6. Press spacebar on 'enable pop' so that the radio button
is selected;

7. Select the option you want, i.e. 'Enable pop for all
mail', 'Enable pop for mail that arrives from now on', or
'Disable pop';

8. Arrow down to the combo box to choose how Gmail treats
mail on the web, best option is 'delete Gmail's copy';

9. Arrow down to 'Imap'options and select the 'disable imap'
option;

10. Arrow down to 'Save Changes' button and press Enter.

OK, that is the web side of things done, are you OK setting
up the Outlook settings or would you like the correct

Re: problem with keyboard & function key using the Dell Model Latitude E6330

I find, at least in windoweyes, that the help function doesn’t tell you all keys, just the regular ones.  When I got my Lenovo, and tried to find out what combinations of keys did what with the function key, it wouldn’t tell me.  I had to get a sighted person to look for me.  Pam.

Why don’t you turn on keyboard help with jaws key and 1 on the number row

Now, start trying different combinations of keys with the pag up and page down keys

You will not break anything

 

Like control function and a key

Shift and a key

Jaws key control function

You get the idea.
