Re: Messenger

TerriLynne, I think it is hopeless for a blind person to chat on FB using the computer.  Using the message function on the mobile site is not actual chatting.  A while back a blind person could use instant bird to carry on a conversation with others, but this no longer works.  The message link on the mobile site is mainly for leaving your friends a private message for them to read at some point, and is a poor excuse for an actual conversation.  There is a chat link on the mobile site, but it is useless for a blind person.  It mainly tells you which of your friends are chatting.

Hi Travis,

Thank you for your response. However, if I understand the whole messenger thing correctly, it is not the samde as the one at a time messages to which you are referring. If you go to your messenger page at

 

https://www.messenger.com/

a sighted person can see all of the messages in a conversation on that one page. It is a chat option which people can use as a live chat in pairs or groups or whatever. I am part of at least one neighborhood group, but can’t read the darned messages.

On the computer, I use it through the Facebook mobile site:

https://m.facebook.com/

If you tab from the top of the page, you'll find a link close to the top that says "messages." If you have new messages, there will be a number associated with the link. For instance, right now mine says

Messages(1)

That means there is a new message I haven't checked yet. Clicking on that will take me to that message.

If there is no number after the word "messages," clicking on that will get you to the page where you can view recent conversations by user, with links to click on each one if desired.

Like Ashley though, I find it to be most efficient using my iPhone.

In which case you can just sign into the store with your Microsoft account as needed. If you don't ever plan on using the Microsoft store, no need to be signed into a Microsoft account at all at all times on your computer.

Narrator in Windows 10 actually has the ability to describe images, probably with the same service that powers Seeing AI. The version of Windows 10 that this capability was introduced in eludes me, however.

But you can point the camera in the phone toward the computer screen and it will read and/or describe many things on the screen. It is a fantastic app.

Unfortunately manually one at a time, unless you wouldn’t mind paying for this option which would then allow you to batch convert the various  files because there are certainly third party softwares. Having never used one of these softwares though, I do not have any ideas about their anything.

Hi friends

I use jaws 17, office/outlook 2016, windows 10 on a desk top.

I usually save all my e mails directly to my document folders by using the f12 key…

 

I was curiousabout converting my .msg e mail files over to txt files.

Is this even possible  with a key stroke or command?or would I have to do this manually  for each one?

Thanks
