Re: PayPal Account

Victor
 

Hi everyone:

If you would like to open a PayPal account, I found it easy to do using an app for my iPhone. I realize that not everyone has a cell phone or a smart phone, but that might be the easiest way to start and run your PayPal account.

Just my thoughts,

Victor

Disable Narrator Home in Windows 10

 

Starting in Windows 10 version 1809 'October 2018 Update', the built-in Narrator feature now includes a new dialog, Quick Start Guide. It is intended to teach the user the basics of using Narrator, including its keyboard shortcuts, navigation, commands you can use, and more. With Windows 10 version 1903 'May 2019 Update', Quick Start Guide is replaced with a new 'Narrator Home' screen. If you are not happy to see it, here is how to disable the Narrator Home feature in Windows 10.

QBitTorrent works pretty well with NVDA, but I don't know about JAWS.

Karen:

Also, here are the instructions to turn on audio description after you get your remote voice view working.

I had trouble finding out anything on the web to do this, but Danny came to the rescue. Here are his directions to turn on audio description.

1.Select the show you want
2. Press the pause button
3. Press the Menu button twice.4. Press the down arrow once this should put
you on the sub-title audio selection press select and choose the selection
you nee.Once you are through back out of the Menu and press the play button.

You can find a list of audio described shows on Amazon prime video.

Once you choose audio description, it will come on every time you start an audio described TV show or movie.

Problem fixing a Win 10 instalation

Loy <loyrg2845@...>
 

I have a PC that will not boot into windows, It tries to repair itself but is unsuccessful. I have windows 10 media DVD and have tried to upgrade from it but it tells me I have to boot into windows to upgrade. Is there any other way to upgrade? If not I may have to just install Windows 10 clean.

Re: PayPal Account

Yes, I did contact them by phone.  The agent told me that I could not get past the "put in your cell number" screen to see the rest of my account.  Does everyone in the world have a cell phone? Well, I'm not gonna give them mine.

Shuffle Mode on VLC

 

Hi guys,
So, anyone using VLC could please tell me how to enable this mode?
This button simply is nowhere to be found. So I'd love some help with it.

Many thanks.

Re: Windows10 and Email programs

Tree Mabry
 

I use NVDA, and have found Thunderbird to be the best option for my email needs. Outlook is another great choice, but for me, Outlook 2016 lags a bit for some reason. The only downside of Thunderbird, is that it's spell check is not as powerful as what you will find in the Microsoft Office apps. To get around this, I just use an Auto Hot key app I made that let's me spell check my emails in Microsoft Word.


It's been a while since I used the native Windows 10 mail app, so I can't really remember all of the reasons it did not work for me. I believe the main issue was that it did not offer the option for me to merge all of the inboxes of my various email accounts; of course, I may be remembering that wrong, please someone correct me if I'm mistaken. Either way, if you only have one email account that kind of inbox management would not be an issue for you.


Good luck,

Thank you. I just switched over to NVDA from jaws so I'd be interested to
hear what NVDA users have to say.

Personally I like outlook. I haven't used the windows mail app much, but I
understand it is still a bit hokey with jaws. I'm sure others on the list
can give a much more informed opinion on windows mail. Many folks on the
list use thunderbird, and I understand it works quite well.

Hello listers, I would like some opinions on what client is best to use with
Windows10. Is the mail app reliable or would it be better to stick with a
program such as outlook?

Re: PayPal Account

Howard Traxler <howard@...>
 

Thanks Bill, but when I did that, it actually took it and then it said they would send an access code to that number that I would need to log in.  Well, even if I would put in my cell number, I don't take text messages; so I wouldn't get the access code anyway.  Sure hate to give up my PayPal account.  I've had it for almost twenty years and it's quite a convenience.
