In skype's view menu, find the option that says
"Split View"
That will make each conversation, be it IM or call, appear in its own window.

My daughter and I are trying to use Skype for IM. I can do fine using the app on my IPhone but not having any luck with IM on the desktop. Is someone else using this and could you give me some direction? Her message will pop up briefly but I can’t find a way to reply.

Oh; the one I'm talking about is just a clock; no radio. Unless you are
talking about the radio that receives the time signal. I have had it in the
window since last Friday night, and the time zone still says standard time,
while mine that I've had for about seven years, says daylight savings time.
Other than that, they are twins. Pam.

Hi, Pamela,

There may be more than a single version of your clock. I have here.

There is nothing in its setup which mentions daylight or standard times.

I never count on its changing from one time to the other. Maybe it does
that, but I never noticed.

I have had this clock for perhaps 15 years. Its radio is one of the best
I've seen.

I have had one of these clocks for a long time, and I don't have troubles
with it setting itself. I won one as a doorprize, recently. It's the
same clock I have: the big round face with the speaker in the back and
this English lady voice. When I went to set the one I won, it only says
standard time. I checked mine, and it says daylight savings time. I have
had it sitting near windows since Friday night and it has not changed.
How can I get it to change to daylight savings time? I was going to give
it to somebody, but I can't unless I can make sure it is working
correctly. Pam. I have had it

Re: tracking walking distance

 

I would recommend a Fitbit one. This is a very small device that will clip onto your pocket, and it will track how many steps you were doing and tell you how far you have gone. It also has a nice feature that allows you to set up to 8 alarms.

One more Outlook question.

Carolyn Arnold
 

In my Inbox and Trash, the number of messages will not read out, when I press Insert Page Down on the Numb Lock pad, the JAWS command for the status line reads filter applied. Can someone tell me what to do to get this back that I have had before all of this Outlook breakdown started? It is mostly fixed, but not that.

 

Incidentally, when we did that Cleanview, I had to go to all of my boxes to get them back in ascending order. I do not know if there is a way to make that apply to all boxes. Do any of you? Thanks.

 

Best from,

 

Carolyn

 


Re: Screenreaders don't like .CHM Windows Help files

I'm not sure how text might be displayed so it wouldn't be detected.  Can you send a copy of one of the files so those of us who want might play with it?  The list doesn't accept attachments but in some other way?  I wonder if the text is being displayed in some odd way as some sort of object that can't be seen except when using object navigation and looking for child objects even where not expected.  Perhaps NVDA's object navigation could see something or the JAWS touch cursor.

dos screen readers

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

hi

I need someone to refresh my memory here. In the days of ms-dos and screen readers such as vocal eyes, master touch, and asap, did, specifically the master touch screen reader only use the keynote gold for its speech? Or could it also use decTalk? also does anyone have an old manual for the master touch screen reader that they could send to me? I just want to read it for fun.


Thanks


Josh

also had some success with the social security death index and

This problem only seems to occur with some CHM files. Usually I will have to switch to the HTML window using the JAWS cursor in such cases.
