Hi all,

looking to change a friend who has 3 devices from using pop to iMap.

She has folders under the inbox.

What is the easiest way to get those folders and messages inside to imap?

I realise I need to make a new iMap account on each device.

Re: DELL E6430

Well, This can get a little tricky depending on your setup, but here's
a few things you should know before you start.

Boot order is determined by your BIOS, which is inaccessible to the
blind. Dell offers a quick boot option by tapping the F12 key on boot
up, which will offer a few boot devices in a list, such as CD/DVD,
USB, Network, ect...
However, this probably won't work for you and here's why. The USB
option offered in the quick boot menu is run in legacy mode and you
can't install the new OS in that mode.
You'll need to get into the BIOS and make the USB drive the first
bootable option, Enable Uefi mode and disable the secure boot option.
Further, you need to format the USB drive using the FAT32 file system
and have the 64bit version of Windows 10 on it ready to go.

Sorry I don't have any work a rounds for this one,
Blaster


Re: windows 10 update issue

Blaster
 

If you don't need a screen, that is to say you use a screen reader,
than no you don't have to replace it to run windows 10. At this point
does the laptop boot up?
To be clear, could you provide the list with more information?

Do you need a laptop screen to use a computeror do you use a screen reader?
Which reader do you use and do you need to reinstall it?

More info would be helpful,
Blaster

Hello All,

Has anybody figured out how to boot from a bootable thumbdrive using Win 7 pro on a Dell E6430 laptop?  If I use the thumbdrive on a different manufacture laptop, it will boot up fine...just not on the Dell. 

Thank you,

Hi Bob,

The problem is that I have not figured out how to buy something that is listed as prime pantry as not a prime pantry item.  Even after you click on it you have know choice but to buy it as a prime pantry item.

Hello Kay,

 

If you are an Amazon Prime member, you should be able to order, outside of the Prime Pantry, any one item or any number of any item and get free, 2-day delivery regardless of the cost of any one or more items in that order.  This is true for items sold by or fulfilled by Amazon.  Some so-called market place, third-party vendors do not follow those guidelines.

 

Orders from the Prime Pantry ordinarily require a shipping charge of $ 5.99 for each pantry box even if the box contains only one small, inexpensive item for the order.

 

Very recently, it seems that Amazon has made some changes to their shipping charges for pantry boxes.  Now, it seems, that you can order any number of Prime Pantry items and pay only one $ 5.99 shipping charge for that order.  In addition, you can subscribe to a Prime Pantry membership and get free shipping on Prime Pantry orders totaling $ 40.00 or more.  It is still not clear to me if the Prime Pantry membership costs $ 5.99 or $ 4.99 per month which, of course, they will charge to your account every month whether or not you place any Prime Pantry orders during that month.  For me, I rarely place any order for any where near $ 40.00 for Prime Pantry items, so, it is very unlikely that I will subscribe to a Prime Pantry membership!

I don’t really understand the Prime Pantry myself and have experienced many of the same things that you have mentioned. However, if you wish to purchase a Prime Pantry item without doing it as a PP item, then you will find the same     item else in the search results at a higher price. The item may or may not be marked as a Prime item, meaning that it qualifies for the Free 2-day shipping, which hardly ever happens anymore. In other words, you cannot purchase a Prime Pantry item for the great price that is quoted for the item without buying a box full of stuff. If you wish to speak to someone who would know, I would call the Amazon disability Customer Service line at 888-283-1678.

 

I purchased an item on Friday that was a Prime shipping item, but it said that I would not receive it until Wednesday of next week. Since the US Postal Service Is now delivering Amazon items on Sundays, that calculates into about 5 days for delivery.

 

Michael

I am really not sure where to ask these questions, but here goes.  I simply don't understand the prime pantry.  Yes, I understand that you basically buy a box for $5.  now, when you fill it up it goes by percentages.  But as you fill it up it might say you have 3 items left and so you get 3 more items and now it says that you still have 3 more items left and you have started on the next box.  So, you take an item out and you don't have a full box and it might say again that you have 3 more items.  This whole thing just doesn't make sense to me.  Now comes the next problem.  You can only buy one of an item even though more than one would fit in a box and if you do buy more than one, they will add another box even though that one is not full yet.  There is so much I don't get about this service and as of now I find it a supreme pain to use.  Now, for my next question.  If an item is marked as being prime pantry and you only want to buy one thing, is there any way to buy it not as a prime pantry item?  If anyone has any suggestions or can help me out I'd be forever grateful.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Amazon Echo or Google HomeWhich will access YouTube?

Gene
 

The Echo can't just go to any site you tell it to.  It can't work with Youtube, according to this article.
 
The Google Home can work with it, evidently, but the article doesn't say if you have to pay anything to have it do so.  Does Google let you use Youtube for free or does it want you to use its paid service? 
 
You can't assume what these devices will do.  They aren't general browsers.

Hi Marie,
 
See if these notes will help you:
 
From: David Whitehead
Hello there;
 
A quick google search yielded the following result,
 
 
How to Fix Server Error 3219 or 0x8de00005 on Windows Live Mail?
 
The majority of people who faced the issue with Server Error 3219 fixed it
by reconfiguring the account. This task has to be done manually by
performing
these steps:
 
list of 10 items
1. Click on the Accounts Tab - find the + symbol with the, @, sign and click
it.  the plus stands for Add, and the, At symbol, is for e-mail.
2. Enter your e-mail address, password, and display name.
3. Check Manually Configure Server Settings.
4. Select IMAP under Incoming Server Information.
5. Type imap-mail.outlook.com in the Server Address field and type 993 in
port.
6. Check Requires a secure connection SSL
7. Locate Outgoing Server Information.
8. Here, type smtp-mail.outlook.com as a server address and in port type
587.
9. Check Requires a secure connection SSL and Requires Authentication.
10. Press Next.
list end
your new email account has been completed.
David
 
From: Tom
thank you for the steps, but please explain how to do step 1 for those of us
who aren't exactly sure how to find the + sign
Tom
 
From: Scorpio
Hi Tom,
Unfortunately, the message is written from a sighted person's perspective,
but essentially, the plus stands for Add, and the At symbol is for e-mail.
So, in the steps, the first step is to select the Accounts ribbon, followed
by Add, which should be a split button, followed by the E-mail button, and
this will bring you to the create a new e-mail account dialog box.

As the Echo Dot accesses the internet to retrieve the information which is given the user, I would feel certain that she could access Youtube and play a video from there, or at least the audio from a video. An exact video may not be able to be played, but on which address a particular subject should be doable.

Hi Everyone,

As I wrote last week, I bought my friend an Amazon Echo Dot.

My cousin set it up for him using my IPhone because he owns neither a computer nor smartphone, or other kind of tablet.

He really wants to listen to YouTube videos of Indian music and movies; is there a way for Alexa to access that?

Or, should I return this to Best Buy and buy him a Google Home device.

Please advise.

Hi Jim,
Yes, you can certainly use the Kindle on a PC with either Jaws or NVDA. The support has gotten much better in the last couple of months. And yes, you can also use some of the Kindle e-reader's. Those are the devices that are made just for reading books. Otherwise, the cheapest alternative is to purchase a Kindle fire tablet. That lets you re-kindle books and also do other things. And right now, those tablets are on a good deal of Amazon. The cheapest one is the fire seven and I think it's $30 right now. The HD eight is $50, and the HD 10 is $100 for the les expensive device. Aside from size, the major difference that would concern us would be the fact that both theeight and the 10 have two speakers, and they sound better than the seven. Also the 10 has a newer processor and more storage space, although all of them come with a card slot. I don't have personal experience using the E readers, but I know that some of them can be used.

Re: Amazon prime pantry

Kay Malmquist
 

Hi Bob,
The problem is that I have not figured out how to buy something that is listed as prime pantry as not a prime pantry item.  Even after you click on it you have know choice but to buy it as a prime pantry item.

Hello Kay,
 
If you are an Amazon Prime member, you should be able to order, outside of the Prime Pantry, any one item or any number of any item and get free, 2-day delivery regardless of the cost of any one or more items in that order.  This is true for items sold by or fulfilled by Amazon.  Some so-called market place, third-party vendors do not follow those guidelines.
 
Orders from the Prime Pantry ordinarily require a shipping charge of $ 5.99 for each pantry box even if the box contains only one small, inexpensive item for the order.
 
Very recently, it seems that Amazon has made some changes to their shipping charges for pantry boxes.  Now, it seems, that you can order any number of Prime Pantry items and pay only one $ 5.99 shipping charge for that order.  In addition, you can subscribe to a Prime Pantry membership and get free shipping on Prime Pantry orders totaling $ 40.00 or more.  It is still not clear to me if the Prime Pantry membership costs $ 5.99 or $ 4.99 per month which, of course, they will charge to your account every month whether or not you place any Prime Pantry orders during that month.  For me, I rarely place any order for any where near $ 40.00 for Prime Pantry items, so, it is very unlikely that I will subscribe to a Prime Pantry membership!

I don’t really understand the Prime Pantry myself and have experienced many of the same things that you have mentioned. However, if you wish to purchase a Prime Pantry item without doing it as a PP item, then you will find the same     item else in the search results at a higher price. The item may or may not be marked as a Prime item, meaning that it qualifies for the Free 2-day shipping, which hardly ever happens anymore. In other words, you cannot purchase a Prime Pantry item for the great price that is quoted for the item without buying a box full of stuff. If you wish to speak to someone who would know, I would call the Amazon disability Customer Service line at 888-283-1678.

 

I purchased an item on Friday that was a Prime shipping item, but it said that I would not receive it until Wednesday of next week. Since the US Postal Service Is now delivering Amazon items on Sundays, that calculates into about 5 days for delivery.

I am really not sure where to ask these questions, but here goes.  I simply don't understand the prime pantry.  Yes, I understand that you basically buy a box for $5.  now, when you fill it up it goes by percentages.  But as you fill it up it might say you have 3 items left and so you get 3 more items and now it says that you still have 3 more items left and you have started on the next box.  So, you take an item out and you don't have a full box and it might say again that you have 3 more items.  This whole thing just doesn't make sense to me.  Now comes the next problem.  You can only buy one of an item even though more than one would fit in a box and if you do buy more than one, they will add another box even though that one is not full yet.  There is so much I don't get about this service and as of now I find it a supreme pain to use.  Now, for my next question.  If an item is marked as being prime pantry and you only want to buy one thing, is there any way to buy it not as a prime pantry item?  If anyone has any suggestions or can help me out I'd be forever grateful.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Amazon prime pantry

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

 

Hi,

 

I actually talked to Amazon myself because I was interested in this. I was told that if one places a Prine Pantry order that includes a minimum of 5 Prime Pantry items, the buyer is awarded a $6 coupon which offsets the $5.99 shipping charge. Considering that many if not all of the Prime Pamtry items are priced at a large discount, 5 items could be  very affordable, especially with free shipping.

I don’t really understand the Prime Pantry myself and have experienced many of the same things that you have mentioned. However, if you wish to purchase a Prime Pantry item without doing it as a PP item, then you will find the same     item else in the search results at a higher price. The item may or may not be marked as a Prime item, meaning that it qualifies for the Free 2-day shipping, which hardly ever happens anymore. In other words, you cannot purchase a Prime Pantry item for the great price that is quoted for the item without buying a box full of stuff. If you wish to speak to someone who would know, I would call the Amazon disability Customer Service line at 888-283-1678.

 

I purchased an item on Friday that was a Prime shipping item, but it said that I would not receive it until Wednesday of next week. Since the US Postal Service Is now delivering Amazon items on Sundays, that calculates into about 5 days for delivery.

I am really not sure where to ask these questions, but here goes.  I simply don't understand the prime pantry.  Yes, I understand that you basically buy a box for $5.  now, when you fill it up it goes by percentages.  But as you fill it up it might say you have 3 items left and so you get 3 more items and now it says that you still have 3 more items left and you have started on the next box.  So, you take an item out and you don't have a full box and it might say again that you have 3 more items.  This whole thing just doesn't make sense to me.  Now comes the next problem.  You can only buy one of an item even though more than one would fit in a box and if you do buy more than one, they will add another box even though that one is not full yet.  There is so much I don't get about this service and as of now I find it a supreme pain to use.  Now, for my next question.  If an item is marked as being prime pantry and you only want to buy one thing, is there any way to buy it not as a prime pantry item?  If anyone has any suggestions or can help me out I'd be forever grateful.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Reading BRF files for the first time.

Aman Singer
 

Hi,

Are the brf files contracted or uncontracted, if I may ask? If the
former, make sure that you are reading in uncontracted braille. You do not
need to translate the file since it is already translated. If they are
uncontracted, then you can use the iPhone's translation to translate them,
of course, but I am tempted to think, given the problems you're having, that
you are trying to read contracted files with the braille translator turned
on. That won't work.

Subject: [TechTalk] Reading BRF files for the first time.

Hi,

This is the first time I've ever read a BRF file, specifically on my iPhone
5s with IOS 11 2. I'um using Accessnote. I've noticed that what I'm read+
is cluttered with characters like disble, brackets and such. Is there a
way to clean that up, or could it actually be Braille music? It's the
letteryics of songs.

thanks much,


Sharon H.

Hey Michael,
Thanks for the help.  You are probably quite right and I should just call Amazon.  Take care.
