Outlook contacts question

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
I have a couple of contacts that have multiple email addresses, and I'm
wondering, is there a way to have multiple email addresses in the same contact,
or do I have to create a separate contact for each email address? I'm using
Outlook 2013, Jaws 2018 and Windows 10 version 1909. Look forward to any
ideas/suggestions that anyone can provide!! Thanks Madison

Thanks, Brian.  That's the answer I was hoping for.  I'll just let it sit for a while; and when I come back, I find out if anything happened.

Hi John,

 

Well,  I thought I had tried that  before my original post.

This time it worked.

Thanks a Bunch!

Hi Monty, I'm not sure this is the answer, but, I have found that if I just go to my dropbox folder using Explorer, I too cannot get the share links I want. But,

If I use the Windows Run command to Run Dropbox, then I have that share link when I press the apps/context/rightClick key.

Root Directory Limit

Howard Traxler
 

Using windows 10, 19.9, and NVDA almost latest.

Is there a limit to the number of folders on the root directory of a hard drive?  I have a 4TB WD Passport; 44 folders and 4 files. Trying to copy files into one of the folders on it from my main drive but it doesn't indicate that anything is happening.  Usually when I do this, I can review the screen and see how many folders/files,percent complete, speed, copying filename, and remaining time and files.  But this time it shows nothing so far. Reviewing the screen, somewhere it says "this folder is empty." and at the bottom it says 0 items.  I am really puzzled.

Any thoughts, please.
Howard

Thanks, but my list would be less than 30.  I have just tried a test list and asked for responses if my friends got my note...I have received a number of replies.  I am using the BCC field.


Thanks to all!

If you want no one who's mailed to know who else has been sent the message, then I recommend sending it back to yourself in the To: field and putting all other recipients in the BCC field.

Be warned, though, that most e-mail service providers do have a limit on how many addresses can appear in any one of the "recipient" fields, as a form of spam control.  You could, at one time, put, say, 200 email addresses in the BCC field, do a send, and all would be well.  If you try that now, the message will often be bounced back to you.  You sometimes have to play the game of pairing down the list until you hit the size your email service provider allows, then send several copies of that message to however many members of what had been your original list of recipients that you can send to in any single message.

Re: where's the reply link?

John Sanfilippo
 

Hi Brian, Well, methinks there may be a bug, or there is some hidden event occurred whereby the reply link just did not show up in this particular instance. I do have alogin and password. And on that particular occasion I just tapped thelink in the Summary message exactly as I did just now to see this, and there was no reply link. But today, the same action got me the reply link, as you now can see.

But thanks for the great explanation of what's going on.

Re: using Thunderbird to send group email

Gene
 

U would, I would think, want to use the BCC field. Put your address in the from line and all recipient's addresses will be kept private.
Place your address in the from line, then shift tab perhaps twice to get to the bcc field button. Though you usually press the space bar on buttons, this button requires enter. There is no excuse for nonstandard buttons in the interface.
Use whatever method you wish to add addresses. Autocomplete works here as in the other address fields in Thunderbird. Type something like a name like john or the last name of the person then read the current line to see if it is the right address. If not down arrow through the selections and press enter on the one you want. It will be added and you will be in a blank line where you can add another address in the same way. Continue until you have added all the addresses you want.

Re: Microsoft Edge download help

Gene
 

It won't stop it. this isn't a progress bar. this is forced speech and occurs whether you are in the browser window or not. I don't know if it might be stopped by turning off ARIA speech in JAWS. But this isn't a case of a progress bar. If it were, it could be stopped in NVDA in the same way, by turning off spoken progress updates and it can't. The plugin I spoke of in another message will stop it, no matter what screen-reader is used because it is a Chrome plugin, not a browser plugin.

With Jaws this might be stopped if the Progress Bar Updates Announcement was turned off while in Edge. To do this try the following:

1. Open Edge and press, Insert + 6, on the number row to open the Settings Center.

2. Down arrow to, Users closed, and right arrow to open.

3. Down arrow 1 time to, Progress Bar Updates Announcement ....intervals, now tap the spacebar to toggle through the options stopping when Jaws reports, Off.

4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close the Settings Center.

What do you mean the voice to be on and with what screen-reader?

Edge is based on the Chrome browser and if it does what that browser does,
when you download something alerts are spoken and it is forced speech. This
can't be stopped unless you turn all speech off during the download, in
which case you can't use your screen-reader, or you get, in the case of
Chrome, a Chrome add-on you can use to stop this behavior. I don't use that
add-on and I don't recall its name. Others may know. As I recall, you can
use add-ons for Chrome in Edge so you should be able to solve the problem
that way.

You will hear these intrusive announcements no matter if you are in the
program window or not. If you want to look at e-mail, for example, speech
be interrupted by these announcements.

Hi,

I’m thinking about creating multiple user accounts on my windows 10 machine.

Is there a keystroke to switch users?

I just now did windows key x, went to where it said shut down, sign out etc. but I didn’t see switch user.

So, if I have a user account called Kimsan, and I create another one called john smith, how can I quickly switch over to john smith, if there is indeed a keystroke.
