Deleted Items.

Carolyn Arnold
 

I saw on it, before entering 74 unread, but when I go in, it
does say Filter. So I'd like to know how to get it to read
the numbers, would rather not have to call Microsoft
Accessibility. I talked to them twice yesterday and then for
two long hours this afternoon. I really appreciate them.

Yes, I'm using IMAP, and she worked on it so much that I
kept hearing 993. I think that means something, but I have
no idea what.

Best regards,

If you are using IMAP, I don't know what happens with
messages when you try to delete them. Are you using IMAP?
I haven't used IMAP. I suspect that whyen you issue the
delete command in a gMAIL IMAP account, your e-mail program
doesn't show those messages any longer. But I wouldn't be
surprised if they are still in the inbox on the GMail site
where you look at your account. I haven't used GMail with
an IMAP account so others will have to comment on that.

firefox 52.6.0 ESR keeps updating on one machine

David Mehler
 

Hello,

I've got two win10 1803 I believe machines, both running a custom
install of Firefox 52.6.0 ESR, neither has the mozilla maintenance
service installed. On one updates are not prompted for, I don't want
them, on the other, I just had to uninstall 60 and reinstall 52 and
then it automatically updated again. Is there a way I can force the
machine to stay on 52.6 ESR? I've got all the uautomatic update
checking off, it shouldn't be asking but it is.

The one difference I can think of is and I don't know how this would
matter, one machine, the working one is win10 pro, the other one is
win10 home, both are x64 systems.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks.
Dave.


Trash in Outlook.

Carolyn Arnold
 

Now, I see that there are no emails at all in my trash. How
can I set it to when I delete, it will go to Trash? I
checked, and the check is not on to Delete on Exit. No
wonder I wasn't getting numbers; there were no messages.

Presidential Alert

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I got a forwarded email message from a source I trust, saying that we might get an alert on our mobile phones that says, “Presidential Alert”.  It’s a test that we don’t need to respond to.  It’s like the sound of an Amber Alert.

Just in case you didn’t get it already.

Hth,

Re: open book and page orientation

Gene
 

I haven't used Kurzweil for years.  I used to compare openbook and Kurzweil off and on when new versions came out. 
 
I just checked and the default was and may still be dynamic thresholding for Kurzweil.  I was saying that this should be compared to Automatic contrast control, the setting mentioned by Brian that checks the contrast for every line.  I'm not saying one is better nor am I saying which one may be better.  I'm saying to check and not assume.

Automatic contrast control may produce superior results but don't assume contrast settings do what they claim.  Compare results in a variety of material to simply using whatever the default contrast setting is in Kurzweil.  I don't know the name but the default automatically determines the contrast for the page you are scanning and not line by line, as far as I know. 
 
Years ago, Kurzweil had a feature, they may still, that looked at a page in advance of scanning it and determined the contrast.  Supposedly, this would give you the best contrast for the specific document, a book a piece of mail etc. you were scanning.  Testing showed me that I very often would get better results using the default, to say nothing of the waste of time in using the determine settings for a document setting.  Again, I don't recall it's name after all these years.  Yet a lot of people, who didn't test for themselves were convinced that this setting was wonderful. 
 
Whether using Kurzweil, Openbook, whatever, test settings.  Don't assume that settings that sound wonderful actually are. 
 
My experience in Openbook is that using the fastest recognition setting is not only faster, but gives better results in many cases.  I use it unless a scan is poor and I want to see if another setting improves it.  That's another example of testing and not assuming a manufacturer's setting that sounds wonderful actually is.
 
These settings are developed by people.  Just because they are in a program makes them no more infallible than the way they were designed and tested.  Don't give up your critical and independent thinking faculty just because something is in a program.

Dear Dan & List:

 

While looking around in your Open Book settings, see if there are any useful settings not enabled.

 

Friend of mine was running Kurzweil, said his scans were full of at signs.

Found a setting, enabled, to mark doubtful characters with an at sign. Turned it off and he loved the quality of his scans. Seems Kurzweil is hyperactive critical about doubtful characters. Generally they are fine and the at sign flag is unnecessary.

 

His flatbed scanner had an automatic document feeder, was not enabled. Turned it on and he found he could let it scan the morning mail while he enjoyed a good cup of coffee.

 

There is also automatic contrast control. Tweaks the contrast line by line for better scanning.

 

Told my friend I dislike being the official page-turner. Automatic document feeders are great. Wish they held more than thirty sheets of paper.

 

Wrote a one-page primer on the Stream one day.

 

What you really need to know:

Where the SD slot is and how to gently stuff cards into it.

Where the power button is and how to force a reboot.

How to charge it.

 

Where the help key lives.

 

Wrote this up for some friends, they said I saved them wading through the user guide to get it working.

Oh and how long the stream takes to fully recharge, four hours as I recall.

 

Told the friends they will figure out navigation with trial and error. Bout finding the power, volume up/down, speed and tone buttons is very important.

Re: open book and page orientation

Brian K. Lingard
 

Very true about page orientation giving you clues as to if you are at the start or end of the book.

 

Periodically I find a page, which does not automatically orient well. In these rare cases, it can speed recognition if you manually select the orientation. Thankfully, such pages are rare.

It isn't a question of whether the page is recognized correctly regardless of orientation.  that is a default setting.  but it may be useful to hear the direction of orientation at times.  When scanning a book, for example, it may be the fastest way to know if you are at the beginning or end of the book and which direction you are scanning from back to front or from front to back.  announcement of orientation is a separate feature than automatic recognition that compensates for orientation.
