Re: need a Tech support phone number

Gerald Levy
 

Well, I went to Get Human and found HP's toll-free customer support phone number:


800-752-0900.  Next time, look a little harder.

I cant find the number too but I found this link. It makes you think you can contact them. It is a complete ly because when you click on the contact us link, you get no number woe! So if any one finally gets a contact, please tell them to their face that they do not know anything about accessibility otherwise, they would have had the number displayed after it says contact us.

Hi,

Does anyone have a technical support phone number for HP products, printers if possible? I've hunted the webpage high and low and can't find one anywhere.

Thanks.

Hi Vicki,
 
The main Outlook Express folder is in Program Files X86.  Thanks for the address book reminder.  I normally have address book backups, but 1 more won't hurt!

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi Mike
 
Under Roaming, the microsoft folder has your OE Address book files. There are two in there that you need.
 
I have never saved anything under X86, so what is in there that I might be missing?

Hi All,
 
In case the OE restore tool doesn't work, what are the folders that I need to make backups of to get OE6 working again after a major update to Windows 10?  i.e;
 
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Outlook Express"
 
"C:\Users\Mike B\AppData\Local\Identities"
 
"C:\Users\Mike B\AppData\Roaming\Identities"
 
Other than the 3 folders stated above what other folders should I have copied / saved to an external drive?  All input is greatly appreciated. Thanks much.

you could always get a basic iPod touch for around $190 off Amazon and then use a very good modern accessible dictionary app with it.

recorder HQ pro also lets you connect USB microphones with the proper adapter.

Painted Myself into a Corner?

Dave
 

Hello,


OK, I've managed to Screw something up on my New System.


Was setting up a New for me, Win 10 System, with jaws, and the Brave
Browser.


When in Brave, the Web Browser, I have possibly flipped a Switch so that
now when I press the Enter Key, or Press the Space Bar on a Link, or
Button, I get no reaction.


I can go to Web Sites and attempt to Download a File and the Link will
be right there, and I press the Enter Key to start the Download, and I
get nothing.  The Download never begins.


A friend can use the Mouse to Click on the same link and the Download
begins as expected.,


I can't tell if I've messed up a setting in Brave, or in Jaws, or both.


Also, I can't get Jaws to stop speaking the key strokes.


Where is this setting?  Seems simple and it probably is, but it's now
almost 3:00 am, and I'm not remembering my name at this point.


If anyone can help that would be great.


Grumpy Dave

Hi David,
I know what you mean. I used to have one a long time ago (Can you believe this? It actually melted when I was on holiday with my mum!). The strange thing is, I was looking for one myself last night and couldn't find one anywhere. The closest I may have gotten is the newer models with the ridiculous Dectalky type female voice. So yeah. You might wanna hold onto that.
Cheers,
Damien.

Try an app called Dolby On. That app seems to record in stereo.
