    first find the file you wish to attach, then hit context and arrow to "copy as path."

Press enter.       

Go to t-bird, write your message, and when you wish to attach a file hit control-shift-a. hit control-v to paste the file in, and tab to "open" and press enter.

In the message you are composing, open the menus with alt.  Down arrow to attachments submenu.  Press enter.  There are two items in the submenu.  One is for files and if you down arrow, you get to web pages.  Since you want to attach a file, press enter.  A dialog opens that is the same or similar to an open dialog for opening a file such as in a word processor.  Attach the file with the dialog.  if you need more information, ask here. 
 
Others who use Thunderbird may have more information or provide another way to add an attachment.  But since I don't know how urgent it is, I'm answering now.

Changing a message subject

 

Hi all,
Hate to ask silly questions but how one change a message subject to reflect the topic being discussed?
I don't mean simply changing the line. I mean something like "X was: Y". How is it done to put the new subject while showing the old one?

Thanks a lot.

Cheers,

Re: Indoor Amplified Antenna For Digital TV Radio

 

You could probably just search in Tenna frequency booster online and it would pop up with something.

Hi Group,

I bought a Digital TV Radio from Oehm Electronics over a year ago. Everything was reasonably functional until 2 of my local TV stations changed frequency. Now I am having some difficulty receiving those stations. Is anyone using an amplified indoor TV antenna for any receiver for Digital TV and if so what make and model number?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Help with tokens in a Word 2010 document

Steven Johnson <saxmonger@...>
 

Good day everyone.  I am a QA person for a medical transcription company, and I have gone back and forth with my sighted supervisor for a while now regarding my inability to read the transcriptionist’s initials at the bottom of my documents to be proofread.  He maintains that they are there, but JAWS refuses to read any text where he loudly proclaims that it is located.  This morning, I reached my wit’s end regarding this matter, so I got JAWS to do convenient OCR on my editing screen, and voila, there were the transcriptionist’s initials that I have been trying to read for years.  I contacted my boss and told him that I made a breakthrough, and he said, “Well, that makes sense, the transcriptionist’s initials are in the form of a token.”  However, I got my next job, and where the initials were located before was some gibberish about an email address not being verified.  Does anyone know how to get JAWS to read “tokens” within a Word 2010 document?  I would like to be able to read this hidden text on a consistent basis.  Thanks in advance for any tips.


Re: Home surveillance setup?

Chris G <chris@...>
 

Hi Dave,

I have used the Ring doorbells and Ring floodlight cam.

You'll need to make sure your WIFI can reach the spot where you want to place the camera and that it has some kind of power.

The two doorbells I have used run on both battery or hard wired to the house for power. Because I didn't want to pay an electrician to rerun hard wire to the bells, I run them on battery. The front bell detects motion more then the back, so the back bell lasts longer before it requires a charge.
Recently I have purchased two third party solar panels for the ring bells that are supposed to keep those batteries charged. Have had them installed for about three or so weeks and the batteries in the bells stay charged.

You could do the same with the floodlight camera I would suppose. I think Ring even has a solar powered one now. The one I have is hardwired.

If you have an Amazon Alexa Echo Show you could say to it Alexa, show the (camera name) and it will open a video and audio feed to the camera.
You can even be alerted by Alexa when it detects movement and speak to whatever is at the camera.
The apps are accessible. There is a monthly or annual fee for the cloud storage.


I don't have first hand experience with the other brand you mentioned.


Hope this helps,
Chris

Subject: [TechTalk] Home surveillance setup?

Hello,

Do we have any home owners on this list who have got experience with surveillance devices, infrared cameras, motion-activated lights, etc?

The situation is as follows, I've got a part of my property that is not visible especially at night and we've had a squatter. What I'm wanting to do and I have no experience with any of this, no run-ins with this type of technology, is put an infrared camera out there possibly in conjunction with a motion-activated flood light.

As I said no experience from me, but I was talking to two someones today, one of them recommended the Wyz devices, the other recommended Ring Doorbell devices.

Anyone have experience with either of these?


If so, how are they in terms of accessibility?

Thanks.
Dave.

On digital TV's there is a button to scan to pick up new or changed digital signals. Probably something similar on a digital TV radio.

Hi friends

Silly question here but I need to know the differences between Microsoft Home and Business program

I have a lap top that I plan to give to my husband for Father’s day and I have Jaws on it with a commercial or inactive key on it, frown.

The lap top is new but I don’t want to give him my programs, so I plan to purchase the software new. Smile and install it or have it installed.

 

So all I need is to find out which one to purchase.

 

Thanks

Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated

Re: how to use Word as Outlook 2019 editor

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi Sandra,

 

I did a little digging and it seems that Office 2019 is a stripped-down version of Office 365.  Here is an excerpt from an article located at

https://www.komando.com/happening-now/492090/microsoft-office-2019-is-not-the-version-you-want-to-buy

 

“According to Microsoft's Office 2019 FAQ, here are the Office 365 features that are missing from Office 2019:

Unlocks creativity

  • Editor in Word
  • Tap in Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook
  • Designer in PowerPoint
  • Researcher in Word
  • Ideas in Excel
  • Data Types in Excel”

 

Sandra, you’ll see in the article that previous versions of Office and its 365 counterpart were the same, but evidently Microsoft is trying to push people toward the full-featured, regularly updated Office 365.

 

Simply put, you may not be finding a way to select Word as your Outlook 2019 editor because that function doesn’t exist in Office 2019.

 

Hope this isn’t too confusing, the article does a pretty good job explaining the issue.

 

HTh
