How can I reset my groups are your password?

 

Hi guys I was wondering if there was any way to reset my Groups password. I don't recall what it was and so far when I hit the link to send me a reset email it doesn't send anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi

You can use a program called Stascom for this task. Take a look at: https://www.stascom.co.za/stascom.html

Re: Is it possible to permanently maximize windows

Mike B
 

Hi TerriLynn,
 
To my knowledge it's not possible to have Microsoft automatically maximize every window you open or to have all open windows maximized.  There's a little program called, STASCOM UTILITY SUITE, that will automatically maximize each window that comes into focus.  Below is an explanation of the maximizing feature and below that will be all the program features + the URL
 
 
AUTOMATED MAXIMISING OF APPLICATION WINDOWS
list of 5 items
• The automated maximizing feature in Stascom will maximise every window that gets focus, without prior customisation required.
• The exception to this rule will be those window titles specified by the user to be excluded from being maximised. This latter scenario occasionally is
necessary for an application, or specific window, providing more accurate feedback from a screen reader when in a restored state. Recording such an exception
can be done via the configuration window, opened with control+Windows+F3. Go to the automatic maximise section and choose the button referring to specifying
a window title exception. This step needs to be done when the title of interest has focus. The user will be informed of what the current window title is,
and asked for confirmation to store this title as an exception for future reference. Such an exception will be honoured in all future sessions.
• It is important to note that a window title added as an exception will only apply to a window title with an exact match. For example, should an exception
be added for a document opened in Microsoft Word, the exception will only be applicable to that specific document window. Should the user open a different
document in Microsoft Word for which an exception is required, such a title needs to be added to the list of existing exceptions, making use of the procedure
described above.
• Should the user at any point decide to clear the exceptions list, this can be done via the configuration window, under the automated maximising options.
This button will remove all previously specified exception titles.
• A list of previously defined window title exceptions will be shown in the summary report, just below the status for automatic maximising.
list end
Program features
list of 18 items
• Battery status on laptops is reported automatically while disconnected from charger,  while charging, or both. The notification intervals  are configured
in the Configuration Manager. As can be expected, this feature and associated  options  are hidden on desktop computers;
• Contact Manager, including  yearly customisable audio and text birthday reminders for listed contacts. Alert options are either audio and text, text
only, or disabled. If set to audio and text, the audio alert will be repeated after 15 minutes (by default), if a reminder is not acknowledged. The interval
can be changed to  half hourly, hourly, or disabled in Configuration Manager. This module is mainly for the benefit of users who do not have access to
a smartphone, or possibly those who prefer the flexibility and simplicity of the Stascom alternative. The current version does not feature importing contacts
from an external file source such as csv;
• Reminder Manager with audio and text alerts, with optional repetitions on a future date. Audio alert sound can be changed if desired. The same customisable
options as with birthday reminders, are available. See above;
• Calculate day of the week for any date between 1 January 1601 and 31 December 9999;
• Maximises application windows automatically. Window title exceptions can be specified ;
• Prevents mute status on default sound card automatically. Recovery volume is configurable;
• Low volume correction on default sound card (disabled by default). Minimum and normalise levels are configurable;
• Two schedules and output percentage for automatic volume adjustment can be specified (disabled by default);
• Password Generator, creating a unique, very strong 10 character password with each keystroke. Generated password can be copied to clipboard optionally;
 
• Time announcements on the hour,  half hour and  quarter hour. Individual hours can be specified, or disabled altogether.  Custom audio chimes are optional
if preferred over the included sound clips;
• Accented and other special characters  can be easily inserted with hot keys;
• Alphabetical list of 51 Windows applications and settings quickly accesseible with a hot key;
• master volume level increased / decreased   by 5% with hot keys, ascending / descending tones to indicate the volume adjustment;
• Word count for selected text in commonly used editors and browsers, with an option to place the result on the Windows clipboard. This feature is not
supported in some editors and e-mail clients with non-standard cursors. The results are more accurate than in most similar packages, as it ignores all
punctuation and special characters;
• Program configuration can be reset to installation defaults;
• Report generator, providing a summary of program settings and system information in HTML format for easy navigation;
• Choice of three sets of modifier keys to use with Stascom hotkeys. A bypass key suspends Stascom hotkeys for five seconds. Should the user wish to disable
the home row 1 to 0 hotkeys altogether, this can be done under the general category in Configuration Manager. If these keys are disabled, all options can
still be accessed through the program dashboard, activated with modifier+backslash.

list end

You most likely could not find a download link simply due to you not being signed in to your specific account. So go to the site below and either sign into your account, or create an account for you to be signed into upon Microsoft.

 

If you were actually signed into your account, then maybe try another browser. I myself used Firefox with no difficulties at all and I did not try using PayPal.

The price was actually $36.09, but after using the coupon code of

Hello,


I have such a small Need for Microsoft Word, that I don't have it installed on any of my Systems.  Instead I use Jarte, and for my needs, it works great.  It is Small, Quick, Simple, and works well with either of my Screen Readers.


However, there are times when I need to send a file to someone using a Microsoft Format, either MS Word 2013 or newer.


For the price of $36 down to $24 for Office Pro 2016, this deal is hard to resist.


Guess my question is this, How Accessible is Office 2016?


I use the Spell Checker, and need to change Fonts and Font Sizes.  Need to do Underlining and some Outlining.


I also need to read large Documents of more than 100 pages.


I assume that Jaws 2019, and the latest NVDA Screen Readers will read enough in Word 2016 to do those items I listed above.


But, I thought I would ask here first, since these days, very little should be Assumed.


Oh, and if it matters, I am running everything on a Win 10 Pro System, with an I7 Chip and loads of Memory.


Isn't there a Newer version of MS Word?  2018, 19 or 20?


But, for $36 to $24, This deal is a temptation.


I would Love to hear from users of Office 2016 and hear how well it works with Screen Readers.

Subject: [TechTalk] MS Office 2016

Hello,


I have such a small Need for Microsoft Word, that I don't have it installed on any of my Systems. Instead I use Jarte, and for my needs, it works great. It is Small, Quick, Simple, and works well with either of my Screen Readers.


However, there are times when I need to send a file to someone using a Microsoft Format, either MS Word 2013 or newer.


For the price of $36 down to $24 for Office Pro 2016, this deal is hard to resist.


Guess my question is this, How Accessible is Office 2016?


I use the Spell Checker, and need to change Fonts and Font Sizes. Need to do Underlining and some Outlining.


I also need to read large Documents of more than 100 pages.


I assume that Jaws 2019, and the latest NVDA Screen Readers will read enough in Word 2016 to do those items I listed above.


But, I thought I would ask here first, since these days, very little should be Assumed.


Oh, and if it matters, I am running everything on a Win 10 Pro System, with an I7 Chip and loads of Memory.


Isn't there a Newer version of MS Word? 2018, 19 or 20?


But, for $36 to $24, This deal is a temptation.


I would Love to hear from users of Office 2016 and hear how well it works with Screen Readers.


Thanks for any reply,


Grumpy Dave

Re: malware bytes tray application

I only run Microsoft Security Essentials on our Win7 system and Windows Defender on our Win10 systems.  Being very careful about what links you click on and using the computer carefully can go a long ways in helping to keep dreaded malware, trojans and viruses away.  I'm sure everyone knows this, but we all screw-up once in awhile.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I'm running the paid program so it sounds like there's nothing I can do. Oh well I'm used to it now, I was just wondering if there was a way to get rid of it.

Hi all,

Whenever windows 10 comes up after I either reboot or when I initially
boot-up in the morning I have a window on my taskbar that says malware
bytes tray application. Is there a way to get rid of that? I've had the
paid version of malware bytes for a long time but this has only started
happening with the later versions.

Thanks.

Re: Low-Cost Braille Displays

 

is the orbit still a good display?

I know it got off to a shaky start

No I have not been able to make the braille me work with jaws yet. I have written to www.atguys.com from who I bought my braille me and suggested it. And I also suggested it on the braille me email list. I am just waiting for a firmware update that will allow the braille me to work with jaws and also provide some other needed fixes. Other than that and the occasional dot not popping up requiring a light shake or a light tap, I really really love the braille me display that I own. I also like my two orbit reader displays.
