Re: looking for a good wireless router/modem isn't in the same room

Hi Joanne.  Strange as it may seem, there are certain spots within an area, a building or a house, say where data cannot, for some reason, travel between your wireless equipment and your pc, hence your inability to connect to the internet, even with a wireless modem/router operating to full capacity.  These spots are known as "Blind Spots".  The only way is to shift your pc's position so that it isn't located at that blind spot so the wireless router/modem can then communicate with your pc.  It also happens with mobile phones where in certain areas or spots, no incoming or outgoing call is posible to make or recieve.  Cheers!

I purcheased a erro mesh router. It works great for my needs. Sure it is not the modem? A router is only is good as the modem it has to connect too! My erro mesh has to points so I have internet all threw the house! I found outthe modem I was using was the issue and we all know spectrum really sucks. So now I am in the market for a modem that works with spectrum

My router uses an app off my iPhone and it sends weekly reports directly to the phone. Cheers Heather .

My Linxys has bit the dust and I wondered what you'd recommend for my new adapter. The modem is in another room, and the Linxys eventually found it but the internet was kind of shaky so I'd like a better one. Might there be a more top-of-the-line Linxys, or have you found another brand to be better? Thanks.

Re: cleaning old messages out of thunderbird

Gene
 

Its much more efficient to look through the folders in the program itself. Since it is an IMAP account, all mail on the server will, I think, be there. Look in the all mail folder, which is a folder in GMail where all your mail may be. I'm not sure just how things are organized but trash may not have mail that is in all mail.

Gene,

This actually gives me another idea, most of the time after I read a
message I immediately delete and then like you there are times when I
realize either right away or later on that I should've sent a reply to
that message. Up to now I've always just gone into my trash folder in
thunderbird trying to find the message and sometimes I find it and
sometimes I don't, but since you mentioned going back to the site and
searching there for messages I want I'll try that next time. Hopefully
what I'm looking for will be easier to find on gmail.com than it often
tends to be in thunderbird's trash.

No, there is no option for emptying the Sent or Spam folders. The easiest way to accomplish this is to focus on the list of messages in each foler, perform a select all command (control-A) and then press the delete key to move them all in one fell swoop to the trash folder. Then when you empty the trash folder, all the sent and spam messages will also be deleted along with the rest of the trash.

Re: Kurzweil 1000, or something else?

Gene
 

How old is the version you are using? In my opinion, there hasn't been really revolutionary improvement in OCR accuracy for quite some time. That doesn't mean that you might not want to upgrade. there might be improvement enough in the kinds of material you expect to scan. But can you use the old version with whatever version of Windows you have? If so, why not see how it performs on material of the sort you expect to regularly scan. Then, you can determine if you are satisfied or not with what you have. if the version you have doesn't run in your version of Windows, then you will have to do something.

Re: update was help with a website

Gene
 

I am assuming that there is a way to route the touch cursor to the virtual PC cursor in this discussion. I am assuming that you are first working with the Virtual PC Cursor. I dohn't use JAWS, and that's why I am making these assumptions. You don't have to tab and tab. Use your screen-reader's search to search for the item you want or for the first item you want if you don't know what the item you are looking for is, then find the one you want by down arrowing. That item, you will have to remember from your first look at what was an unfamiliar page. The find command is one of the most under and unused and most useful commands blind people have in web browsing. Any training material that doesn't teach its use thoroughly is deficient.

It was established that it worked via a few browsers using NVDA but since I use jaws it was not working.

However, I revisited the usage of the touch cursor, and it worked. However, the part I don’t like is the fact I have to tab it seems like forever until I pass a melody and underneath it will say group, group group, so pressing enter on one of those played a melody but outside of it working via the touch cursor, what a pain lol.

Re: cleaning old messages out of thunderbird

Jim Wohlgamuth
 

Hi there!

When I wish to delete old mail, I simply select all messages in a given folder and press delete.  When I wish to empty the trash, I press alt-F arrow up to empty trash and press enter.  I will occasionally compact the boxes using the alt-F and arrowing up to compact folders and pressing enter.This does keep my system running somewhat faster in thunderbird. Give this a try and see.  Good Luck! and Have A Great Day!

No, there is no option for emptying the Sent or Spam folders.  The easiest way to accomplish this is to focus on the list of messages in each foler, perform a select all command (control-A) and then press the delete key to move them all in one fell swoop to the trash folder.  Then when you empty the trash folder, all the sent and spam messages will also be deleted along with the rest of the trash.

Hi all,

I only have a gmail address in thunderbird and I see under the file menu an option to empty the trash. Is there a quick way to delete messages from the sent mail folder and the spam folder, other than going into each folder and selecting the messages and deleting them that way that is?

Thanks.

looking for a good wireless router/modem isn't in the same room

joanne
 

My Linxys has bit the dust and I wondered what you'd recommend for my new adapter. The modem is in another room, and the Linxys eventually found it but the internet was kind of shaky so I'd like a better one. Might there be a more top-of-the-line Linxys, or have you found another brand to be better? Thanks.

Hi Michael,

The easiest possible solution is that NVDA's mouse tracking has been disabled - if that is the case, press NVDA+m to reinstate it (easy to do if you go to open the NVDA menu and miss by one letter).

I was going to suggest maybe your mouse has been disabled - but then I realised if you are using the mouse and that was the issue, you would have noticed it wasn't moving :)  So back to the first option above is my best guess!

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello I am looking for a fullally accessible forhead thermometer. I had purcheased  one from  the national Federation of the blind and it was not accessible; go figure that one sheesh! So amazon was not a helpful on this as they could not tell me if anyone of their items were fullally accessible. So hoping some here have the model if they have one themselves! Thanks Heather

Re: cleaning old messages out of thunderbird

Are you using a pop3 or an IMAP account? If you are using a POP3 account, I don't know how much disk space you would save, it depends on how many messages you delete. If you are using an IMAP account, you won't save any disk space that matters because messages aren't downloaded until you open a message. Then they aren't kept on your machine after you read them ieven if you don't delete them. Just the message headers are stored on the machine which takes up so little room that its negligible.
