I saw them being sold off the perkins site for 800 dolalres. They are either gray or blue! So do not think their out of stock. The price seems way high but, I have had mine for 37 years or so I think. I saw some of ebay too! Cheers Heather

It's affecting the manufacturing and shipping of huge numbers of things, so it's not at all surprising that a niche market item would be hit hard.

Right now computer spare parts are getting harder and harder to come by, and prices have risen accordingly, due to both Covid-related issues and the trade war initiated by our sitting president with China.  Since China is currently "the manufacturer for the world" of all sorts of component parts of all sorts of things, if you're a US manufacturer you're hit on two fronts.

It is asking for information to set up your account. Modern e-mail programs try to set up your account automatically, if you let them. Use the e-mail address you use for your account and the password you use. In other words, this isn't a create new account feature. It is trying to set up your existing account.

You may update when you want. There is nothing wrong with waiting until you finish setting things up.

Hi Gene and All,
Ok I finally got to download Thunderbird by looking through Brave settings to see if I could find some settings about that annoying message saying this file can harm your PC, and that took me to the downloads I have downloaded for yesterday, and I came across a message saying Thunderbird has been cancelled, so I tabbed again, and came across an option to try download again, so I did, and sure enough, with in maybe 2 or 3 minutes, Thunderbird was downloaded! Although, I did still get the message about this file can harm my PC, and I still couldn't find any way to answer that question, so I pressed the JAWS key, and found a disregard or keep option, so I entered on that, and that allowed Thunderbird to finish downloading! LOL! So now, I am going through the set up process. Thunderbird is asking me for my name, and an email address. My question is can I select any email address I want? I don't have to put in my Outlook email address, or do I?
I am also getting a message saying there is an update for Thunderbird, and it wants me to update to that new version. Do I need to update that?

I would suggest Thunderbird Portable. It does as much as the installed
version and it has advantages. If the program develops a problem, yu don't
have to troubleshoot it. You can have a backup copy and you can delete the
copy you are using and copy the backup to the location where the program is
you usually use.

Another advantage is that if you want to put the program on another
computer, you can copy it there and do no setup.

You can also run it from a thumb drive or other removable media. So if you
are using someone else's computer and you want to use your program, you can
use it in that way.

Here is a direct download link:
https://portableapps.com/downloading/?a=ThunderbirdPortable&n=Mozilla%20Thunderbird,%20Portable%20Edition&s=s&p=&d=pa&f=ThunderbirdPortable_78.4.2_English.paf.exe

You run the exe file and it seems like an installer but it doesn't install
anything. It places the program on your hard drive.

You run the program by opening the folder where it is, finding the exe file,
typing t will probably place you on it the first time, then press enter.
You can also send the exe file to the desktop as a shortcut and make a short
cut key. If you want to know more about that, members will tell you.

As to your NVDA question, I'll either write you a short introduction or I

For quite some time now, whenever I attempt to forward an email message,
Jaws completely just stops talking, and no matter what keys I might press,
Jaws is completely silent. Several minutes later after I keep pressing some
keys just to see if I can hear something, Jaws starts reading, Microsoft is
not responding if I close the program now or restart the program, I will
lose any unsaved data, then I get the message saying, U.S spelling is not

Re: Outlook 2010 Help Please.

Try another browser and see if the same thing happens. There is no default setting that should cause this behavior or else a lot of people would have it. There may be some sort of setting for turning off a feature that keeps you from unreliable sites. I don't know if there is a setting about checking downloading files but if you don't have problems downloading with another browser, do that for now.

Others may suggest settings changes and I'll also see what I can find in Brave.

Hi Gene,
I know what you mean about the Thunderbird is not a large file, matter of fact, when Thunderbird started downloading, Brave said Thunderbird was 101 MB, and that isn't a large file. That is why I figured something is wrong, and closed the download, after three attempts. I got a message on my PC today telling me I had a new update for JAWS 2021, so, I started the download of JAWS, and the download was acting just like when I was downloading Thunderbird, meaning the counting down. JAWS didn't even complete the download, and I got the same message as I did when I was downloading Thunderbird, about how this file can harm your PC, and asking me if I am sure I want to continue the download. I'm thinking there might be some setting in Brave I need to change. Do you know what I might look for in Brave as to see why do I get this message, as this is the second time I got the message? Can you please send me a drop box link, and I will try that to see if it will work.
Thank you Thank you!

Janet,

          Yes.  Thunderbird (and all modern e-mail clients, for that matter) relies on a large online database of server and port information it has compiled for specific email service providers, and automatically populates many of the things one used to have to enter by hand.  Generally all you'll have to enter is your email address, password, and what you'd like to have put ahead of your email address to identify you on email messages, e.g., J. Smith or Janet Smith or . . .

          Thunderbird has had "automatic setup" for a number of years now for the vast majority of email service providers.  When you first fire it up you will be asked for your e-mail address and password, along with a couple of other bits related to setting up the account, and it will in all likelihood take care of the rest.  It even triggers a login to Google for OAUTH access and sets that up were you to be using a Gmail account.

          If you have your address and password, just fire up Thunderbird and follow it's lead as far as giving it the info necessary to configure your account.

sure enough flaky! I never did like Outlook for the simple fact it has to
many whistles and bells, in which I can't stand, and I just don't need all
those bells that go along with it. Now, this is just my personal opinion
though. The thought of calling Microsoft, gives me a headache! I will
definitely look in to another email program though. Having said all that, I
do love Outlook for iOS though, and wish I could have that on my pc, and not
only on my phone, but it is what it is! LOLL!

You could try a repair of your Office software or if you only have Outlook,
a repair of that.
Other option would be call Microsoft disability desk.

Subject: [TechTalk] Outlook 2010 Help Please.

Hi everyone,
For quite some time now, whenever I attempt to forward an email message,
Jaws completely just stops talking, and no matter what keys I might press,
Jaws is completely silent. Several minutes later after I keep pressing some
keys just to see if I can hear something, Jaws starts reading, Microsoft is
not responding if I close the program now or restart the program, I will
lose any unsaved data, then I get the message saying, U.S spelling is not
responding. Does anyone have any suggestions as how to stop this, and just
simply forward an email message?
Using Outlook 2010, Windows 7.
Thank you all in advance.

Peace Be With You.

It's affecting the manufacturing and shipping of huge numbers of things, so it's not at all surprising that a niche market item would be hit hard.

Right now computer spare parts are getting harder and harder to come by, and prices have risen accordingly, due to both Covid-related issues and the trade war initiated by our sitting president with China.  Since China is currently "the manufacturer for the world" of all sorts of component parts of all sorts of things, if you're a US manufacturer you're hit on two fronts.

perkins braillers out of stock or discontinued?

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi

Are perkins braillers out of stock or possibly discontinued? On the perkins products website, it says standard braillers won’t be in, until mid October 2020. Well we are past that date now. It says electric braillers won’t be in, until late November 2020. We are coming up on that in 2 or 3 weeks. I sure am glad I got my used electric brailler when I did, and furthermore sent it back to Perkins for reconditioning and refurbishment and cleaning when I did 3 months ago. I hope perkins braillers and their parts will still be sold and supported for many decades to come. Perhaps the covid or coronavirus is really affecting the manufacturing and shipping of standard and electric perkins braillers?

It is Chrome.

Open Chrome Settings (ALT+F, S), find the Passwords entry under the Autofill section, which is on the main Settings page, and activate it, then, on the Passwords settings page, toggle Offer to save passwords to off.

I would also then check lower down on the Password Settings page for Saved passwords and delete any that may already be saved that you do not wish to be so, as turning the above noted setting off does not remove any already saved passwords, just prevents any from being saved going forward.

Hi Gene,
I know what you mean about the Thunderbird is not a large file, matter of fact, when Thunderbird started downloading, Brave said Thunderbird was 101 MB, and that isn't a large file. That is why I figured something is wrong, and closed the download, after three attempts. I got a message on my PC today telling me I had a new update for JAWS 2021, so, I started the download of JAWS, and the download was acting just like when I was downloading Thunderbird, meaning the counting down. JAWS didn't even complete the download, and I got the same message as I did when I was downloading Thunderbird, about how this file can harm your PC, and asking me if I am sure I want to continue the download. I'm thinking there might be some setting in Brave I need to change. Do you know what I might look for in Brave as to see why do I get this message, as this is the second time I got the message? Can you please send me a drop box link, and I will try that to see if it will work.
Thank you Thank you!

I don't know how fast your connection is but the download isn't large, its
about 100MB.

What antivirus and antimalware programs are you using?

I can try uploading the program to my Dropbox and you can see if you can
download it from there.

I've been trying to download Thunderbird with the link you gave for at least
35 minutes or more, and I get a message from Brave saying downloading
Thunderbird Portable 32 minutes left, but then one minute later Brave
reports 25 minutes left, then Brave reports 29 minutes left, this doesn't

again, but I still get the same message from Brave about counting the

I would suggest Thunderbird Portable. It does as much as the installed
version and it has advantages. If the program develops a problem, yu don't
have to troubleshoot it. You can have a backup copy and you can delete the
copy you are using and copy the backup to the location where the program is
you usually use.

Another advantage is that if you want to put the program on another
computer, you can copy it there and do no setup.

You can also run it from a thumb drive or other removable media. So if you
are using someone else's computer and you want to use your program, you can
use it in that way.

Here is a direct download link:
https://portableapps.com/downloading/?a=ThunderbirdPortable&n=Mozilla%20Thunderbird,%20Portable%20Edition&s=s&p=&d=pa&f=ThunderbirdPortable_78.4.2_English.paf.exe

You run the exe file and it seems like an installer but it doesn't install
anything. It places the program on your hard drive.

You run the program by opening the folder where it is, finding the exe file,
typing t will probably place you on it the first time, then press enter.
You can also send the exe file to the desktop as a shortcut and make a short
cut key. If you want to know more about that, members will tell you.

As to your NVDA question, I'll either write you a short introduction or I
may have something I wrote in the past.

-
Gene,

           The former.

           And when it comes to things sent to you as attachments, your smartest move for any you want to have over the long haul is to detach them and save them to your own machine outside the e-mail client entirely.

           I've been using Gmail for years and on a couple of accounts have not been nearly so good about following my own, "Once you touch it, you nuke it if you know you don't want it later," rule.  One one account I've got 10,044 messages, most of which really should have been deleted immediately after first access.  On two others I've got just over 4500 messages on one and just under 2000 messages on another, and that's ridiculous, too, but not quite as ridiculous as the first example.

           Keeping every email message you ever receive is the cyber equivalent of keeping every piece of real mail (including junk mail) you ever receive, and who does that?  We even tend to throw out important stuff, like bills, after we know we've sent payment unless we need records for something like taxes.  Hoarding email makes no more sense than hoarding snail mail.  It's a small portion of what any one of us receive that requires permanent filing, and the capacities given by any email service provider I know have yet to be exceeded either by myself or any residential or small business client I've had over the past almost 2 decades.

POP3 can definitely be set this way, but most default configurations don't. If you were using an e-mail client that actually asked you a preference upon setting up the account then that was an email client that was far more smartly designed than the many I've had the misfortune of dealing with.

When it first became common for people to have multiple devices I spent a lot of time trying to explain to those who set up POP3 on all of them, for the same account, why they were seeing different messages on the different devices and why those received on one were not received on the others. And since POP3 had been pretty much the only early email protocol, a lot of people made huge messes for themselves at that time by simply "copy and pasting" their account settings from device to device without realizing the likely ramifications. The fact that very few these days access email strictly on a single device was the reason that IMAP, Exchange and other server-side access protocols came into existence. And since those work perfectly well even if you are only using a single machine, they make a lot more sense to use anyway, particularly since they allow you to change either e-mail clients or computers or both, at will, without losing a single message. Set up your account again and it's all "automagically" back again - no migration necessary.

JAWS2021.2011.16 Full Release Download Link + What's New

Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link + what's new in this, JAWS2021.2011.16, full release.

32 & 64 Bit Download Link:
 
 

What's New in JAWS 2021 Screen Reading Software
 
JAWS 2021 Features
Picture Smart Improvements
 
Introduced in JAWS and Fusion 2019, Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A description of the image is then displayed
in the Results Viewer. To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by P to activate the Picture Smart layer. You can then press A to describe
a photo acquired from the PEARL camera or a flatbed scanner, F to describe a selected image file in Windows Explorer, C to describe the current control,
or B to describe an image on the Windows Clipboard.
 
JAWS and Fusion 2021 continues to expand this feature by offering several improvements including:
 
list of 3 items
• Describing images on web pages: If focused on an image that is part of a web page, such as a photo on Facebook, pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed
by C now describes the photo.
• Submitting images to multiple services to help improve accuracy: By default, images are submitted to Microsoft for analyzing. However, the Results Viewer
now contains a More Results link which submits the image again to additional services for analyzing and displays an updated description. You can also add
SHIFT to a Picture Smart command to use multiple services. For example, INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed by SHIFT+F, SHIFT+C, or SHIFT+B.
• Using Picture Smart in multiple languages: If you are using JAWS or Fusion in a language other than English and you attempt to use Picture Smart, JAWS
and Fusion will use machine translation to display descriptions in the particular language. You can also manually choose from 38 languages for displaying
results, configurable using the new Picture Smart Language option in Settings Center.
list end
 
Please note that these changes, especially the machine translation for other languages, is still experimental, so things may not always work as expected.
Results will improve as we continue refining this functionality.
 
For more information on Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed by QUESTION MARK or refer to the Picture Smart topic in the JAWS help.
 
OCR Text Directly into a Word Document
 
The Convenient OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature has been enhanced to support sending recognized text directly to Word. Convenient OCR enables
you to access images containing text that is part of the image and displays this information in the Results Viewer. This includes onscreen images such
as the graphical setup screen for an application, an inaccessible PDF opened in Adobe Reader, a currently selected image file in Windows Explorer, or a
document acquired by the PEARL camera or a flatbed scanner.
 
If Microsoft Office is installed on your system, you can now:
 
list of 2 items
• Use the new command INSERT+SPACEBAR, O followed by R to perform OCR on a selected image file in File Explorer or the Desktop and place the recognized
text directly into a Word document. You can also press the APPLICATIONS key and choose Convenient OCR to Word with JAWS or Fusion from the context menu.
• Use the new Open in Word link that appears at the bottom of the Results Viewer once the OCR process is complete.
list end
 
For more information about using Convenient OCR, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, O followed by QUESTION MARK or refer to the Convenient OCR topic in the JAWS help.
 

New Voice Assistant to Help with Various JAWS Commands and Features
 
The new Voice Assistant provides a way to interact with JAWS in Windows 10 using speech input. Supported languages include English, Dutch, German, Spanish,
and French. Ask it to help you out with various JAWS features using natural speech. This means that the same action can be performed by more than one similar
phrase instead of a single predefined voice command. For instance, to launch JAWS Settings Center, you could say "Settings Center" or "change settings."
Unlike keyboard shortcuts, which can be hard to remember, natural voice commands are an easier way to interact with the JAWS software. Using voice input
to control JAWS can also benefit users with certain conditions which prevent them from using a keyboard effectively.
 
The JAWS Voice Assistant uses your computer's internal microphone or you can talk to it using an external microphone or headset. To tell the Voice Assistant
to begin listening for a specific command, there are three options:
 
list of 2 items
• Press the key combination, INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR.
• Speak a specific wake word which alerts the software to begin listening for a voice command, similar to using an Alexa or Google Home device. The wake
word is "Sharky." Speak this word followed by a specific JAWS command, such as, "Sharky, list links."
list end
 
Note: The wake word is not available if you are using a Bluetooth microphone. In this case, you must use the keystroke before speaking the voice command.
 

list of 1 items
• From the JAWS main window, press ALT+U to open the Utilities menu, expand the Voice Assistant submenu, and then select Talk to JAWS.
list end
 
When the Voice Assistant starts listening for a voice command, a short audio indicator plays, and a visual indicator is displayed. After hearing a voice
command, a different audio indicator plays until the command is processed. After processing, the visual indicator is removed, a different, short, audio
indicator plays, and the desired JAWS action is performed.
 
If the Voice Assistant does not hear anything, the message, "Sorry, I didn’t hear anything" is spoken. If the Voice Assistant does not understand or if
the voice command is not supported, the message, "Sorry, I didn’t catch that" is spoken.
 
Note: Since all voice recognition processing is performed over the Internet using Microsoft Services in the cloud, there will be a slight delay depending
on your connection. Be patient and experiment with different commands. This is a new technology being added to our software products and will continue
to change and evolve over time. We welcome your suggestions and feedback.
 
To turn off the Voice Assistant or change other options, such as whether or not JAWS listens for the wake word or to turn off the sounds, open the JAWS
Utilities menu, expand the Voice Assistant submenu, and then select Settings.
 
You can also press INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR twice quickly to immediately toggle the wake word on or off. When the wake word is off, you must always press INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR
first to tell JAWS to begin listening for a command.
 
To learn more and to view a full list of voice commands for specific actions, say "Sharky, help." You can also select Getting Started from the Voice Assistant
menu.
 
Here are a few commands you can try to help you get started. Remember to say "Sharky" or press INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR before speaking each command.
 
list of 10 items
• Help
• Talk faster
• Talk slower
• Change settings
• Command search
• What time is it
• List links
• List headings
• List spelling errors
• Tell me a joke
list end
 
Improved Microsoft Teams Support
list of 6 items
• If you press ENTER on a document in the Files list which opens the inaccessible document viewer, you can now press ESC to return to the files list. You
are also prompted to use the SHIFT+F10 context menu and open the document in the desktop application, which is the suggested method.
• You can now press ALT+1 through 5 to go directly to the first five tab pages.
• Pressing ALT+LEFT ARROW now automatically activates the back button from anywhere in Teams.
• You can now press ALT+H to hang up a call in progress.
• You can now press ALT+T to set focus to the Teams tree view, if visible. Note that it is usually only visible if CTRL+3 has been pressed to show the
teams and channels list. The screen should also be maximized to ensure this control is visible.
• Pressing ALT+R now raises or lowers your hand in a meeting.
list end
 
Teams also allows you to show meetings and calls in separate windows with fewer controls. To do this, press CTRL+COMMA to open Preferences and select the
check box labeled: "Turn on new meeting experience (New meetings and calls will open in separate windows. Requires restarting Teams.)" While JAWS specific
keystrokes for meetings and calls will not work in this split mode, Microsoft has their own set of keystrokes you can review by pressing CTRL+PERIOD.
 
New Keystroke for Setting Punctuation Level
 
You can now press INSERT+SHIFT+2 on the number row (CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+2 in the Laptop keyboard layout) to cycle through the four punctuation levels which
controls how much punctuation JAWS and Fusion speak while reading. The available levels are None, Some, Most, and All. Similar to toggling Screen Echo
(INSERT+S) or Typing Echo (INSERT+2), the punctuation level will revert back to the previous setting when JAWS or Fusion is restarted. To permanently set
a punctuation level, use the JAWS Startup Wizard or Settings Center.
 
Note: Due to issues with some Dell keyboards when using the Laptop layout, you may need to use the RIGHT SHIFT key to perform this keystroke.
 
Announce Most Recent Windows Notification
 
You can now perform the new layered command INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by N to have JAWS repeat the last notification that was spoken. Notifications include
an incoming Teams or Skype call, a recent Zoom message, a new email in Outlook, and more. If you use a Focus braille display, you can also press RIGHT
SHIFT+N (DOTS 1-3-4-5). To view and manage all your Windows notifications, use the Microsoft keystroke WINDOWS Key+A.
 
FS Support Tool for Gathering System Information
 
The FS Support Tool is a new utility that collects information about your computer and sends a report to our Technical Support and Software Development
teams to help us troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing while running JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion. You will typically be asked to run this utility
during a technical support session if it is determined that additional details about your system are needed. Some information that is collected includes:
 

list of 9 items
• System information such as processor, RAM, operating system, architecture, and more
• Event logs
• Version of Adobe Reader (if installed)
• Versions of all installed web browsers
• Information on installed Microsoft Office applications
• Crash dumps
• Installation logs
• Currently running system processes
• User settings
list end
 
The FS Support Tool can be started from the Help menu in JAWS, or the Support menu in ZoomText or Fusion and guides you through collecting and submitting
a report.
 
Announce Accessible Notification Events
 
By default, JAWS now automatically announces Windows generated accessible event notifications in both speech and braille. These types of notifications
are found in a variety of places including business bars in Microsoft Office. If you do not want to hear these announcements, open Settings Center and
clear the Enable Accessible Notification Events check box.
 
Automatic Message Reading in Outlook 365
 
When you open a message from the Inbox in Outlook 365, JAWS and Fusion will now immediately begin reading the message contents without reading the title
or header information. Currently, messages are not automatically read if you ALT+TAB to an open message, or you press ENTER on a message in the Inbox that
is already open.
 
To further customize how messages are read, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) while in Outlook, search for "message," and configure any of the resulting options.
A few items you might want to change include:
 
list of 3 items
• Message Header Field with Message Announcement: Turn this option on if you want JAWS and Fusion to announce the sender's email address and the subject
of the message when a message opens or gains focus.
• Messages Automatically Read: Turn this option off if you do not want JAWS and Fusion to automatically read messages when they are opened.
• Speak Window Titles For Read-only Messages Automatically: Turn this option on if you want JAWS and Fusion to announce the title of the message window
when a message opens or gains focus.
list end
 
General Changes
list of 8 items
• JAWS now properly reads as expected in Skype when moving focus back to the app withouth the need to first press ALT and ESC.
• Added a new Settings Center and Quick Settings option called "Pan Text by Paragraph" which is off by default. When enabled, JAWS sends an entire paragraph
to the braille display instead of only the current line as you navigate web pages and documents. This can help improve the flow of reading when panning
through text as you are less likely to encounter large amounts of empty space on the display when you reach the end of a line. You should now only encounter
blank space if you reach the end of a paragraph, and you would move to the start of the next paragraph when panning again.
• While in a Zoom meeting, you can now press CTRL+SHIFT+T to find out who is currently talking. Zoom recently added this option with CTRL+2 but we were
previously using it for a JAWS feature.
• The default graphics verbosity for JAWS is now to read only labeled graphics as it is no longer as important for JAWS to read graphics that are not labeled.
If you encounter a situation where you need to read unlabeled graphics, or you do not want to hear graphics at all, open Settings Center and search for
Graphics Verbosity.
• When using certain keyboards or headsets with multimedia controls, you can now press the layered command INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by the GRAVE ACCENT
key to toggle volume notification announcements. These announcements are off by default.
•  Removed the announcement of Tutor Messages in Microsoft Office Ribbons as they were very verbose when attempting to navigate.
•  Increased the size of the Speech History Buffer to allow for 500 strings rather than just 50 when you press INSERT+SPACE, H to review  the most recent
strings sent to the synthesizer.
•  Updated braille drivers provided by Papenmeire.
list end

Re: Down arrow key on the laptop not working in some programmes

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Standard advice:

1.  If your computer manufacturer has a support page for drivers and downloads, check to see if there is a keyboard driver for your specific make and model.  Download and install.

if they don't have one or that doesnt' work:

2. Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10

if that doesn't solve the problem:

3. Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file
