Re: Ask about spelling functionality of word 2019

There are three possible ways to open split buttons.  Right arrow, down arrow, or alt down arrow. 
If you use space bar on a split button, the default action will be carried out.  Opening a split button shows you more options.  As I recall, you use enter on them as though you were in a menu.

Hi,

You would access the options in the split button by pressing the right arrow key.

This is how the save button works in Internet Explorer when you are asked to either Open or Save.

The save button is split.

 

Hope this helps,

Chris

Re: Notifications Window Really Getting Annoying

Steve Matzura
 

Changing the time will not fix anything, especially if it's been hours since I was last at the machine's console. Whatever's doing this, it comes and goes, is most annoying, and I'm just going to have to live with it unless or until somebody at a higher level of understanding than mine figures it out and fixes it.

Re: Ask about spelling functionality of word 2019

Hi Cuong,
 
See if this helps:
I don't know how the organization of Windows has changed in Windows 10 but this description should allow you to look through the Windows ribbons, or any other ribbons, and see how things are organized. 
 
First, I'll discuss a structure found in later versions of Windows that you need to know about-- the split button. 
One thing you will see as you look around ribbons and in other places in Windows are split buttons. A split button often allows you to see more options than just the default action.  Let's take an example. 
Let's say you come across a split button that says shut down Windows.  If you press enter on that button, Windows will shut down.  That is the default action.  Split buttons often show more options if you either right arrow while on the button or down arrow.  As an example, if you are on the shut down split button, you can right arrow and a list of options will open.  the items in the list include sleep, hibernate, restart, and others.  You up or down arrow through the list or use the short cut commands you hear announced as you move through the list.  the letter shortcuts often take actions without pressing enter so be careful when using them, just as you are in menus. 
 
So, let's review.  You find a split button that says shut down.  If you press enter, the computer will shut down. If you right arrow, other options may be displayed.  Or if you down arrow, other options may be displayed.  A split button won't work with both methods.  One method, either right arrowing or down arrowing will do so if it can be done with the button.  Try both methods if you don't know which one might work.  If you are on a tool bar which extends across the screen from left to right, down arrowing will open additional options.  If you think about this, it makes sense.  If you are in a menu, down arrowing will move you to the next item in the menu.  So you right arrow on the split button to cause it to display more options.  In a tool bar that extends across the screen from left to right, right arrowing will move you to the next item in the tool bar.  So you down arrow when on the split button to cause it to display more options.  But some tool bars run up and down the screen, as menus do.  And at times, you may not be sure which way a structure extends on screen.  So, as I said, if you are not sure or don't know, try both methods of causing the split button to display more options.  Often, one of them will work. If you open the options a split button offers and don't want to work with them, arrow in the opposite direction to move out of them.  For example, if you right arrowed to open more options, left arrow. 
Some split buttons don't do anything when you right arrow or down arrow.  In that case, open them with alt down arrow.  Then tab through the additional options.  I've almost never worked in this way with split buttons but if you want to close a split button, try alt up arrow if you've used alt down arrow to open it.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

I'm a bit late on this thread.  You should be able to change the password and log-in for the WIFI from the Alexa App on the iPhone.  Lacking that, go to the amazon.com website for Alexa at:

I have a question about WiFi and Alexa. I had to change wireless

installed tonight and currently, my echo isn't working. I tried to fix
it on my own but I couldn't. It kept telling me to look for the orange

simple but detailed directions on how to change my WiFi so it can be
back on line? I have the same password but a different router and have
no idea how to get this corrected. Any help on this would be greatly

and I don't type very well on the keyboard. Thank you in advance.

If you are still not sure there is a button to go to the page on winaero and it explains what the tweak does.
 
The tweaks can be toggled on and off.
 
There are actually keys to restore things back to where they are so you can toggle things on and off, there are enable and disable buttons.

Re: Notifications Window Really Getting Annoying

Steve Matzura
 

Why would I want to turn that off? If I did that, I'd lose a lot of important real notifications that show up in there. And I still say this other notification window is not related to the Actions Center.

Hi Steve,
 
If you install Winaero Tweaker it has an option to turn the Action Center off in the, Desktop and Taskbar, category, it's #8.
 
 
With winaero tweaker, scroll down through the catigories and find what you want, its really descriptive.
 
If you are still not sure there is a button to go to the page on winaero and it explains what the tweak does.
 
The tweaks can be toggled on and off.
 
There are actually keys to restore things back to where they are so you can toggle things on and off, there are enable and disable buttons.
 
 

Take care.  Mike.

Hi Shelly,
 
If they replaced your router with the same brand it's possible that the networks will have the same names and since you're using the same password it's also possible you won't have to insert your password.  Amazon saves the password for selected networks, so just try using your phone to connect to the network and if it connects you're good to go.  The worst that can happen is having to insert a password.

Hi Shelly,

 

When you get to the orange light step press and hold down the button with the little dot in the middle for around 8 seconds and you should get a message from the device saying it's in set-up mode.  Unfortunately you now have to use the Amazon Alexa app.  The Alexa. amazon.com website is no longer available.  Are you using an iPhone or a different phone?  Is this an Echo Dot or which Echo device is it?

Hi Group:


I have a question about WiFi and Alexa. I had to change wireless
routers because mine didn't have a good connection so I had a new one
installed tonight and currently, my echo isn't working. I tried to fix
it on my own but I couldn't. It kept telling me to look for the orange
light and I'm total so couldn't see it. Could someone please give me
simple but detailed directions on how to change my WiFi so it can be
back on line? I have the same password but a different router and have
no idea how to get this corrected. Any help on this would be greatly
appreciated. If it can be done on the computer and that would be
simpler, I would gladly do it since I was having problems using the app
and I don't type very well on the keyboard. Thank you in advance.

Re: Amazon Alexa Question

Hello:

I'm a bit late on this thread.  You should be able to change the password and log-in for the WIFI from the Alexa App on the iPhone.  Lacking that, go to the amazon.com website for Alexa at:
https://alexa.amazon.com/spa/index.html#cards
and log in and click settings/devices/your device/wifi an blue tooth and you should see the router listed there.  There is a setting that says reset wifi or something similar.

HTH.

Firstly, the Actions Center is absolutely bereft of anything except the
normal two buttons--Tablet Mode and Expand Quick Actions. Secondly, if
I knew which application is doing this, I'd turn it off, but there's no
such setting that I can find with which to do it.


P.S.: I was wrong about NVDA suffering from the same annoying problem.
It does not.

Hi Carrie,

Thank you so much for including the BlindAds group!

In your description of the blindAds group you say the following,

BlindAds
BlindAds+subscribe@groups.io
For buying and selling of things primarily blindness related or bought and sold by blind people

It should say the following instead,

For buying, selling, or trading amongst its blind/VI group members.

There is no qualification that it has to be primarily blindness related or a blindness product.

Again, thank you very much!

Re: lists to buy sell trade

Hi Olusegun, I have only heard about one person being confused or to
put it better, you're only the 2nd person to mention the possibility
of some element of confusion between the GoogleGroup and the Groups.io
list. The GoogleGroups one can be classified as moribund defined as
being in a state of inactivity or obsolescence, at best while BlindAds
on groups.io is very much alive and thriving. Besides I believe the
googlegroup has an underline in the name of the group. I can't really
see how the two could be confused with each other.

The Royal post owner did not ask for anyone to take it over they just
announced it would be closed. I believe there has been just one person
who posted lamenting the loss of the list or stating that they didn't
offer it to anyone else to take it over. But again this one was a
pretty moribund list as well, not as bad as the Googlegroups though as
it generally got perhaps 10 messages a week mostly from the two gals
selling jewelry who post every day...

There's another list mentioned in Carrie's post which has around 24
list members counting the group owners' 3 email addresses and that one
is about as dead as the Googlegroups one.

I hope that clarifies the current situation.

Sis Carrie, you're going to need to update the info on your website fast
and
furious. Here's why:

1. BST is dead; it has been replaced with BlindAds but still on groups.io.


There will be some element of confusion with this one no doubt. Before
BlindAds, there was (and still is) BlindAd on googlegroups.com/ It may be
argued that the addition of the letter "s" to one is sufficient
differentiation. May be so, but Freedom Scientific succeeded in KILLING
FREEDOM BOX! I'm not suggesting this will happen in the case of the two
lists discussed here; more than likely, both list owners/moderators will
figure things out.

2. The RoyalPost is about to go under. It will die on July 28. In that
light, you may want to consider pulling it from your list. It's possible
the owners/moderators of the RoyalPost may find someone else to take over
its operations, but until there's a new announcement to that effect, no
need
for a postmortem consideration!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
