Re: How do I get Jaws to number emails in Outlook using Jaws

James Bentley
 

I'm not getting the same results as you. Maybe we are using different
versions of Outlook or our settings are different.

Let me know if you discover how to make changes to the filters.

Hi all,



I've been using Outlook with IMap for over a week now. I am
grateful to all who talked me in to trying it again. 4 or 5
years ago, it didn't work for me. Now, I have a faster
internet connection and faster computers and I am loving
Outlook and imap.



I still have one more item that I hope can be resolved. I
want to know how many emails are in my In-box and where I am
in the list. For example, if I have 100 emails in my In-Box
and I am on email number 50, I would like Jaws to say 50 out
of 100.



I have the check box in folder properties checked that tells
Outlook to number all mail. What else should I try?



I am using Jaws 19, Office365 and Windows10.



Thanks for any ideas,



James B


Re: stereo in-ear Bluetooth earbud recommendation

Vicky Vaughan
 

Hi Dave and List, I recently acquired a set of ear pods called Outlier by Creative. They have some of the features that Dave stated that he wanted.

They are solely Blue tooth and have no wires or loops.
They have a charging case into which they fit snugly and this in turn can be connected to your computer's
Blue tooth port or in my case, into a port on my stereo receiver.

The controls on the ear pods do different functions, so you would lose functionality by using only one.

They cost about $80 American dollars and have a really good sound.
There is a voice that will tell you when they turn on or off.
They paired to my HD 10 seventh gen Fire tablet with no trouble
In order to connect them to my Windows 10 desktop computer, it was necessary to get a Blue tooth adapter.
With the Windows 10, I did not need to download anything from the web, as I would have had to do, if I had a Windows 7 computer.
In order to get the ear pods to connect to the desktop I had to turn off the Blue tooth on my iPhone and tablet, so as not to interfere with the connection process. Once that was done however, I was able to turn Bluetooth back on for both of them, without disturbing that connection.

I did need sighted assistance with the pairing, since it was very helpful to know when the lights were flashing the right pattern to be paired.

The irritating fact about this is that when we lost electricity, I lost the pairing and had to go through all of it again.

They come with 2 sizes of ear tips, so you can probably find one that fits you.

If anyone wishes, I'd be glad to post the instructions for them.

Good luck in finding just the right pair for you and please let us know what you choose and how they workout for you.

Sincerely, Vicky V

Subject: [TechTalk] stereo in-ear bluetooth earbud recommendation

Hello,
I'm looking for recommendations for a bluetooth stereo in-ear earbud.
I've got one that I don't like, due to audio quality and just dissatisfaction overall. There are features that I like:

1. It has two earbuds not a reversable one. So I can put whichever one in the ear I want.
2. It has a charger case that I can also put in the earbud that I'm not using so I won't loose it.
3. No wires, no around the neck piece.

I would like these features. One thing I don't like is the lack of power and other buttons on this setup, also to skip tracks you have to have one earbud in to go forward and the other earbud in to go back, sometimes I'm wanting to only have one earbud in so as to be able to have an ear free. So something i want is having controls on each earbud for complete control without relying on a phne.

I'd appreciate any recommendations, budget friendly around $50 US please.
Thanks.
Dave.

Re: to users of notepad++

David Mehler
 

Hello,

The problem I've got with Notepad specifically is that by default it
saves files in ansi, when I want to save something I'm needing to save
in UTF-8, so I select the UTF-8 option, the problem is notepad puts
some strange special character (invisible) that mucks up my page
validation process. This happens also when I select the Unicode
option.

If it wasn't for that i'd use it it's perfect otherwise, doesn't have
the tracking or selection speak issues that notepad++ seems to have.

Thanks.
Dave.

Re: keyboards with an Applications key

Merv Keck <blind5sparrow@...>
 

I have a USB keyboard that has an applications key but not an extra windows key on the right. I like this keyboard because it has six programmable keys on the left side of the keyboard but does not require two USB ports like many gamers keyboards. It also does not require drivers discs or applications like many gamers keyboards. It is the Corsair K55 and while not wireless and not having the extra Windows key I do not regret buying it.

You do not need a bunch of technical experience to switch out of windows 10 s mode. A quick google search brings up very simple easy to follow directions. Anyone can do it. And on amazon, for $350 or so, I found a laptop with an AMD a12 processor, 8gigs ram and a 256gb solid state drive, with windows 10 in s mode. Again, do a quick google search for 
switch windows 10 out of s mode.
