You can't create message rules. You can with Thunderbird. I don't know how you will like it compared with Outlook. On my computer, it is slower in opening mail than Windows Live Mail is. I continue to use Windows Live Mail. But with Windows Live Mail, you have to create message rules using the provider's web site such as GMail. You can't do so directly in the e-mail program. You can with Thunderbird.

If you find Thunderbird slower than you want and want to try Windows Live Mail, people can tell you how to set up message rules. I never have using GMail or another provider.

Actually, I need to correct an important point:
You can create message rules in Windows Live Mail itself. To do so, you need to be using a pop3 account, not an IMAP account. If you use a POP3 account now or if you don't but you don't care about synchronizing messages on more than one device, you can use a POP3 account with no problems or inconveniences.

If you do like Thunderbird, using Thunderbird portable will mean that you will never have to install or set it up after the first time. Keep a backup copy of the portable program, made after you have set everything up and if you ever have problems such as corruption, with the copy you are using, delete the folder and copy the backup folder where the copy you usually use is. You can also copy the portable version to any other computer you want to use it on.

HI Jim,

Yes, the Windows Mail App is what comes with Windows 10. I
myself am getting used to it. Windows Mail App is quite
basic, and what I mean by that is you can send messages, you
can reply, you can forward, you can receive messages. There
is what Windows calls the People App, in which that is
really the contact list. I like this because it is just a
basic email program, as that is all I want. I have on my
iPhone Outlook for iOS, and the Windows Mail App is very
similar to that, in which I like.

Jim, it is a pain in the anatomy to set up a signature in
Outlook.

Press Alt+F+T+M. Tab to get to signatures. They want you to
put in a nick name and if you want one name for respond, one
name for new, bla, bla, bla. I just gave up on the thing. I
did have mine in at one time, but having to unload and
reload Outlook lost it in the shuffle and never bothered to
try to find it.

Hello Janet:

Thank you for sharing this article. It was very interesting. I am still on Facebook and Twitter, but I am gradually expanding my social media experience to other social media platforms. I am doing this because Facebook and Twitter are restricting free-speech and I am not necessarily confident in their ability to protect our online privacy anymore. The other social media platforms I am now on include www.gab.com and www.mewe.com. Both are pretty accessible. I encourage everyone to check them out.

Hello All,
I just came across this article, and thought some might be interested in reding, so I copied and pasted below.


533 Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers Personal Data of 533
Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers JOSH HENDRICKSON @canterrain
APR 5, 2021, 11:17 AM EDT | 1 min read A Facebook privacy page with a
magnifying glass over the word privacy.
If you're on Facebook (and who isn't?), you may want to consider
locking down all your accounts. A security researcher discovered the
personal data of
533 million Facebook users
leaked online in a hacker forum. The data includes phone numbers, names, birthdates, emails, and more.
The data in question first leaked back in January, but at the time,
hackers had to pay for it through a Telegram bot. That limited the
spread somewhat between the cost and the method to retrieve it. But
over the weekend, security researcher Alon Gal discovered the data posted on a hacker forum for free.
All 533,000,000 Facebook records were just leaked for free.
This means that if you have a Facebook account, it is extremely likely the phone number used for the account was leaked.
I have yet to see Facebook acknowledging this absolute negligence of your data.

Alon Gal (Under the Breach)
In early 2020 a vulnerability that enabled seeing the phone number
linked to every Facebook account was exploited, creating a database containing the information 533m users across all countries.
It was severely under-reported and today the database became much more
worrisome 1/2
6:52 AM · Apr 3, 2021
The breach contains information on users across 106 countries,
including 32 million US users and 11 million UK users. Troy Hunt, of
haveibeenpwned, already has a copy of the data, and in his analysis,
few records (about 0.5%) contain email addresses. But far more contain
phone numbers, birthdates, and other personally identifying
information. Everything you might need to pull off a sim swapping attack or take over an account.
Troy Hunt
Verified account
@troyhunt
Apr 3, 2021
Another general observation on this incident: I'm seeing *extensive* sharing of the data, both the entire corpus of countries and individual country files.
Not just in hacking circles, but very broadly on social media too. This data is everywhere already.
Email parsing now done, found 2,529,621 unique addresses across the 108 files. Call it about 0.5% of all records having an email address.
8:29 PM · Apr 3, 2021
For his part, Hunt is considering adding a new field to
haveibeenpwned.com for phone numbers. Currently, you can only check
your data against email addresses for breaches, but in this case,
that's not very useful. But adding a phone number field comes with risks, so Hunt is still deciding as of this publication.
In a statement to
Bleeping Computer,
Facebook stated that hackers stole the data using a vulnerability the
company patched in late 2019. That means the data stolen is nearly two
years old, and if you've changed your email address or phone numbers since then, what the hackers have is out of date. But other data doesn't change of course, (like birthdates), and people usually keep phone numbers and emails for many years, so the age of the data is of little comfort.
For its part, Facebook doesn't seem to be notifying affected users,
which would be a helpful move. If you want to determine if you're part
of the leak, you can start with haveibeenpwned.
For now, that's an email-only option, but hopefully, Hunt does add a phone number field in the future.

AS I read the info below, office 2013 will receive security updates til April 2013.

Here is some info on windows products.; see info below or go to;

https://www.ghacks.net/2019/08/16/how-long-will-microsoft-continue-to-support-desktop-versions-of-office/
The following table lists recent desktop Office products and end of mainstream and extended support for each of the products.

October 13, 2020
Office 2013

Office 2016
October 13, 2020
October 14, 2025
Office 2019

October 14, 2025
As you can see, Office 2010 support ends next year; nine months after support for Windows 7 ends. 2020 will be a major year for many users and organizations as support for two core Microsoft products runs out.
The products won't just stop working though but Microsoft won't release security updates for them anymore. Microsoft did make a few exceptions in the past when it released security updates for products that it did not support anymore officially.
Support for the three remaining Office desktop products runs out in 2023 or 2025. Windows 8.1 support ends in 2023 and so does support for Office 2013. That leaves Office 2016 and 2019, and Windows 10 as the only desktop products provided that Microsoft does not release a new version of Windows (which it said it would not do claiming that Windows 10 was the last version).

Come on now! We all have to eventually update programs in order for them to work smoothly. One can only get so much out of a program when it is not supported. Oh sure, one can still use it, but the program will run much more smoothly when it receives updates. I myself use Outlook 2010, and it is barely hanging on.

Why do you say it won't work efficiently? Something being out of support has nothing to do with how well it works unless conditions change over time such as a browser that is years old not being able to work with new Internet code.

It may be that if something is out of support long enough, it won't work properly in a new version of Windows, but a lot of old programs still work well.

And again, not receiving support has nothing necessarily to do with how a program runs or whether it can and is advisable to be used. Saying outdated implies it shouldn't be used.

I think if you took a survey, you'd be surprised by ow many people use old programs or old versions of programs that haven't been supported often for years.

Again, some programs such as old browsers shouldn't be used. others have no reason they shouldn't be.

Support for the three remaining Office desktop products runs out in 2023 or 2025. Windows 8.1 support ends in 2023 and so does support for Office 2013.
That leaves Office 2016 and 2019, and Windows 10 as the only desktop products provided that Microsoft does not release a new version of Windows (which it said it would not do claiming that Windows 10 was the last version).

Gene,
Come on now! We all have to eventually update programs in order for them to work smoothly. One can only get so much out of a program when it is not supported. Oh sure, one can still use it, but the program will run much more smoothly when it receives updates. I myself use Outlook 2010, and it is barely hanging on.

Why do you say it won't work efficiently? Something being out of support has nothing to do with how well it works unless conditions change over time such as a browser that is years old not being able to work with new Internet code.

It may be that if something is out of support long enough, it won't work properly in a new version of Windows, but a lot of old programs still work well.

Jim,

I’m sorry to say, but MS has stopped supporting Outlook as of Oct 2020. You
can still use it, but just don’t expect it to work efficiently though. You
will need to upgrade this as well. Not much good news about MS and Outlook
or Windows! LOL!

And again, not receiving support has nothing necessarily to do with how a program runs or whether it can and is advisable to be used. Saying outdated implies it shouldn't be used.

I think if you took a survey, you'd be surprised by ow many people use old programs or old versions of programs that haven't been supported often for years.

Again, some programs such as old browsers shouldn't be used. others have no reason they shouldn't be.

Hello Janet:

Thank you for sharing this article. It was very interesting. I am still on Facebook and Twitter, but I am gradually expanding my social media experience to other social media platforms. I am doing this because Facebook and Twitter are restricting free-speech and I am not necessarily confident in their ability to protect our online privacy anymore. The other social media platforms I am now on include www.gab.com and www.mewe.com. Both are pretty accessible. I encourage everyone to check them out.

533 Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers
Personal Data of 533 Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers
JOSH HENDRICKSON
@canterrain
APR 5, 2021, 11:17 AM EDT | 1 min read
A Facebook privacy page with a magnifying glass over the word privacy.
If you're on Facebook (and who isn't?), you may want to consider locking down all your accounts. A security researcher discovered the personal data of
533 million Facebook users
leaked online in a hacker forum. The data includes phone numbers, names, birthdates, emails, and more.
The data in question first leaked back in January, but at the time, hackers had to pay for it through a Telegram bot. That limited the spread somewhat
between the cost and the method to retrieve it. But over the weekend,
security researcher Alon Gal
discovered the data posted on a hacker forum for free.
All 533,000,000 Facebook records were just leaked for free.
This means that if you have a Facebook account, it is extremely likely the phone number used for the account was leaked.
I have yet to see Facebook acknowledging this absolute negligence of your data.

Alon Gal (Under the Breach)
In early 2020 a vulnerability that enabled seeing the phone number linked to every Facebook account was exploited, creating a database containing the information
533m users across all countries.
It was severely under-reported and today the database became much more worrisome 1/2
6:52 AM · Apr 3, 2021
The breach contains information on users across 106 countries, including 32 million US users and 11 million UK users. Troy Hunt, of
haveibeenpwned,
already has a copy of the data, and in his analysis,
few records
(about 0.5%) contain email addresses. But far more contain phone numbers, birthdates, and other personally identifying information. Everything you might
need to pull off a sim swapping attack or take over an account.
Troy Hunt
Verified account
@troyhunt
Apr 3, 2021
Another general observation on this incident: I'm seeing *extensive* sharing of the data, both the entire corpus of countries and individual country files.
Not just in hacking circles, but very broadly on social media too. This data is everywhere already.
Email parsing now done, found 2,529,621 unique addresses across the 108 files. Call it about 0.5% of all records having an email address.
8:29 PM · Apr 3, 2021
For his part, Hunt is considering adding a
new field
to
haveibeenpwned.com
for phone numbers. Currently, you can only check your data against email addresses for breaches, but in this case, that's not very useful. But adding
a phone number field comes with risks, so Hunt is still deciding as of this publication.
In a statement to
Bleeping Computer,
Facebook stated that hackers stole the data using a vulnerability the company patched in late 2019. That means the data stolen is nearly two years old,
and if you've changed your email address or phone numbers since then, what the hackers have is out of date. But other data doesn't change of course, (like
birthdates), and people usually keep phone numbers and emails for many years, so the age of the data is of little comfort.
For its part, Facebook doesn't seem to be notifying affected users, which would be a helpful move. If you want to determine if you're part of the leak,
you can start with
haveibeenpwned.
For now, that's an email-only option, but hopefully, Hunt does add a phone number field in the future.

Hi Chris,

Well, I just tried doing the samething with Siri, except I didn’t use the hey Siri feature, as I don’t have that turned on, and sure enough, it worked, meaning turning the mute switch off, and press the power button, and Siri didn’t answer me until I turned the mute switch back on.  This is in deed quite interesting.  I had no idea about this.  Thank you Chris as well as Mike B!

Did you accidentally mute your phone?  The little switch above the side volume buttons should be pushed towards the front of the phone.  If the screen is unlocked the phone will report the switches status when moving it.

JAWS2021 April Update, Build 2103.174, Download Link + What's New

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link + what's new in this April update release of J2021.2103.174.
 
 
 

What's new in this release:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2021.2103.174 (April 2021)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the February 2021 release and the April 2021 update.
 
Voice Assistant
list of 6 items
• By default, Voice Assistant listens for the word "sharky" before accepting any commands. However, to help decrease the possibility of starting Voice
Assistant when you didn't intend to, you now have the option to change the wake up phrase to "hey sharky" instead. You can change this from the JAWS Utility
Menu by choosing Voice Assistant, and then selecting Settings. We strongly recommend changing the wake word to "Hey Sharky."
• It is no longer necessary to say the word "toggle" when turning on or off features including Audio Ducking, Screen Shade, Speech On Demand, or the Virtual
Cursor. For example, saying "Sharky, Audio Ducking" now turns this feature on or off depending on the current state.
• When changing the speech rate, you now only need to say "Sharky, Voice Rate" followed by a number. For example, "Sharky, Voice Rate 50" sets the speech
rate to 50 percent. You can even just say the number, and the speech rate will change appropriately.
• To launch the JAWS Dictionary Manager, you now only need to say "Sharky, Dictionary."
• Voice Assistant now immediately stops listening once you have spoken a command. This helps in situations where someone else may begin talking which could
cause Voice Assistant to not process the command correctly.
• Voice commands that generate speech output now work as expected even if JAWS and Fusion are set to Speech On Demand.
list end
 
PlaceMarkers Now Available in Excel Workbooks
 
You can now use Placemarkers to mark cells in an Excel workbook similar to how they are used in Word documents. The following commands are now supported:
 
list of 4 items
• Set a PlaceMarker on the current cell, press CTRL+WINDOWS+K. Only one PlaceMarker can be set per worksheet.
• Move to the cell PlaceMarker on the current worksheet, press ALT+WINDOWS+K. To move to a cell PlaceMarker on another worksheet, first press CTRL+PAGE
UP or CTRL+PAGE DOWN to move to the specific worksheet.
• List all cell PlaceMarkers in the workbook, press ALT+CTRL+WINDOWS+K.
• Select all cells between the cell PlaceMarker and your current location, press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by M.
list end
 
Microsoft Teams
list of 4 items
• Updated the JAWS INSERT+W help to now include all currently available Teams keystrokes.
• Resolved an issue in Teams where messages were double speaking in chat pop out windows.
• If you press CTRL+PERIOD to display all Teams commands, JAWS now also reminds you about using INSERT+W as an easier way to access this information.
• Removed the ALT+T command as you can now use the Teams keystroke, CTRL+3, to move focus to the Teams and Channels tree view.
list end
 
Support for Reading Comments and Other Revision Types in Goodle Docs
 
In Google Docs, JAWS and Fusion now indicate the following as you navigate documents:
 
list of 3 items
• Text that includes comments. When JAWS indicates you are in a section of text that has a comment, press ALT+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE to read the associated comment
including any replies. Press ALT+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE twice quickly to activate the Virtual Cursor and move focus to the comment details page. Press ESC to
return to the document.
• Text that has been inserted or deleted.
• Text that is highlighted or has been called out for some reason, such as a section of text in a document currently being edited by another user. JAWS
says "mark" and "end mark" as you move in and out of this highlighted text.
list end
 
If you prefer to not receive announcements for one or more of these items, open Settings Center and turn off Comment announcement, Inserted text announcement,
Deleted text announcement, or Marked text announcement. All of these options are located in the Proofing group under Text Processing.
 
New Installation Command Line Option for Disabling External Services
 
Starting with the April 2021 releases of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion, when performing a full install, IT professionals and network administrators can add
the /DisableExternalServices command line option to turn off all product features that reach out to the internet. For example:
c:\\InstallerPackage.exe /DisableExternalServices
 
Once JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion is installed after using this command line option, features that are no longer available for use include Research It, FS
Support Tool, Voice Assistant, Error Reporting, JAWS Tandem, Picture Smart, and Anonymous Usage Data Collection. Note that using the software in a remote
access environment will still be available. Turning off features that connect to the internet is especially important for installs in secure locations
such as banks, hospitals, and government agencies.
 
For more information, run the setup package with the /Help command line option.
 
Other Changes
list of 13 items
• When joining a Zoom meeting and you are prompted to enter your name, addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading the name already in the edit field
if the screen resolution was set higher than 100 percent, which is common on most modern laptops. This caused users to enter their name again which in
turn caused it to be read multiple times in meetings.
• In Excel, resolved a reported issue where JAWS was saying "entering table" when pressing F2 to edit a cell's contents.
• When navigating a worksheet in Excel using the mouse in JAWS or Fusion, cell contents are now read first followed by the cell coordinates.
• In Microsoft Word, when encountering text in a document that is both a heading and a link, resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not indicating the
link.
• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was unexpectedly displaying an error message in Outlook when pressing ALT+SHIFT+L from the body of a new message
to list misspelled words.
• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when reviewing a message in GMail and focus landed on text that was part of a link.
• Starting with the April 2021 updates of JAWS and Fusion, Grammar detection in Settings Center is on by default for all applications except Word and Outlook.
This enabled JAWS and Fusion to automatically announce grammatical errors in web-based editors like Google Docs. See the following
TSN
 for more details.
• Updated the descriptions in JAWS Commands Search (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J) for the Append Selected Text to Clipboard (INSERT+WINDOWS+C) and View Clipboard
Text (INSERT+SPACEBAR, C) commands to help clarify that these features are especially useful when you only want to copy and paste text without extra formatting.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not indicating the state of check boxes in the BARD Express app in braille.
• Resolved an issue with selecting text in console windows at high resolution settings.
• Removed the Business Search Research It lookup source due to changes to the website which no longer allows us to retrieve information.
• Removed the ability to use JAWS to customize message lists in Mozilla Thunderbird based on changes in the way list views are presented which caused this
feature to no longer work as expected in this application.
• Turkish is now included as an available language option during a full install.

HI Jim,

Yes, the Windows Mail App is what comes with Windows 10.  I myself am getting used to it.  Windows Mail App is quite basic, and what I mean by that is you can send messages, you can reply, you can forward, you can receive messages.  There is what Windows calls the People App, in which that is really the contact list.  I like this because it is just  a basic email program, as that is all I want.  I have on my iPhone Outlook for iOS, and the Windows Mail App is very similar to that, in which I like.

I’m sorry to say, but MS has stopped supporting Outlook as of Oct 2020.  You can still use it, but just don’t expect it to work efficiently though.  You will need to upgrade this as well.  Not much good news about MS and Outlook or Windows!  LOL!

Hello Janet:

Thank you for sharing this article. It was very interesting. I am still on Facebook and Twitter, but I am gradually expanding my social media experience to other social media platforms. I am doing this because Facebook and Twitter are restricting free-speech and I am not necessarily confident in their ability to protect our online privacy anymore. The other social media platforms I am now on include www.gab.com and www.mewe.com. Both are pretty accessible. I encourage everyone to check them out.

Personal Data of 533 Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers

A Facebook privacy page with a magnifying glass over the word privacy.
If you're on Facebook (and who isn't?), you may want to consider locking down all your accounts. A security researcher discovered the personal data of
533 million Facebook users
leaked online in a hacker forum. The data includes phone numbers, names, birthdates, emails, and more.
The data in question first leaked back in January, but at the time, hackers had to pay for it through a Telegram bot. That limited the spread somewhat
between the cost and the method to retrieve it. But over the weekend,
security researcher Alon Gal
discovered the data posted on a hacker forum for free.
All 533,000,000 Facebook records were just leaked for free.
This means that if you have a Facebook account, it is extremely likely the phone number used for the account was leaked.
I have yet to see Facebook acknowledging this absolute negligence of your data.

Alon Gal (Under the Breach)
In early 2020 a vulnerability that enabled seeing the phone number linked to every Facebook account was exploited, creating a database containing the information
533m users across all countries.
It was severely under-reported and today the database became much more worrisome 1/2
6:52 AM · Apr 3, 2021
The breach contains information on users across 106 countries, including 32 million US users and 11 million UK users. Troy Hunt, of
haveibeenpwned,
already has a copy of the data, and in his analysis,
few records
(about 0.5%) contain email addresses. But far more contain phone numbers, birthdates, and other personally identifying information. Everything you might
need to pull off a sim swapping attack or take over an account.

Another general observation on this incident: I'm seeing *extensive* sharing of the data, both the entire corpus of countries and individual country files.
Not just in hacking circles, but very broadly on social media too. This data is everywhere already.
Email parsing now done, found 2,529,621 unique addresses across the 108 files. Call it about 0.5% of all records having an email address.
8:29 PM · Apr 3, 2021
For his part, Hunt is considering adding a
new field
to
haveibeenpwned.com
for phone numbers. Currently, you can only check your data against email addresses for breaches, but in this case, that's not very useful. But adding
a phone number field comes with risks, so Hunt is still deciding as of this publication.
In a statement to
Bleeping Computer,
Facebook stated that hackers stole the data using a vulnerability the company patched in late 2019. That means the data stolen is nearly two years old,
and if you've changed your email address or phone numbers since then, what the hackers have is out of date. But other data doesn't change of course, (like
birthdates), and people usually keep phone numbers and emails for many years, so the age of the data is of little comfort.
For its part, Facebook doesn't seem to be notifying affected users, which would be a helpful move. If you want to determine if you're part of the leak,
you can start with
haveibeenpwned.
For now, that's an email-only option, but hopefully, Hunt does add a phone number field in the future.

Re: playing siriusXM on 2 devices at the same time

This is true. I use Sirius all the time. I usually use my amazon echo to select what channel I want to listen to. If we try to launch Sirius on another speaker it won't work and we get a message from Sirius that it is already playing on another device. I haven't tried listening on the app while playing on an echo device.

Re: siri says;

Interesting. I didn’t think the status of the mute button would have any effect on siri, so I tried a little experiment. I muted the phone with the switch. Then I tried invoking siri by holding the side button. She wouldn’t answer me, however when I summondsed her by saying, hey siri, she responded as she should.

Did you accidentally mute your phone?  The little switch above the side volume buttons should be pushed towards the front of the phone.  If the screen is unlocked the phone will report the switches status when moving it.

Re: Braille Displays

Victor
 

Yes, a very well written post. I agree as well. I do not need a braille display/notetaker that has its own operating system as I can connect it to a smart mobile device and use it that way. I need a smart phone anyway just to do the things I need to do like send and receive phone calls. I would much rather have a braille display that I can connect to such a device and not just be a standalone device.

The line of orbit braille displays sounds promising because of their lower price. However, I don’t think I would like the rattling sounds either as I record and edit audio. I would not like a braille display that rattles in the background while I am recording that audio. I currently own the first generation focus 40 braille display from Freedom Scientific. It’s a good device and it meets my needs. The only thing I dislike is it’s keyboard. I wish I had one of the more recent generations of the focus 40 braille display because their keyboards are more pleasant to use. Plus, I like the fact that the more recent generations of the focus braille display act as a standalone notetaking device without the operating system. When necessary, I can connect it to my iPhone. That’s what I need. I can also connect it to a computer when necessary as well. Besides, as an iOS user, there are no braille note takers that use the iOS operating system. At least not as far as I know.

Just my thoughts,

Victor

For me, when considering a device to purchase, the specs matter less than

- If you are a person looking for a Braille device, for something simple

someone is paying for the device for you, and you don't care about
software
and security updates, having good hardware, etc., this device is
excellent.
- If you do care about your security, having decent hardware, don't have

absolutely not for you.


This device is absolutely not for me. Neither was the BrailleNote, or any
of the other devices of this kind on the market. I do appreciate a single
device with a Braille display, ease of use, where things tend to just work,
but I also appreciate not paying for a device that is antiquated before it
was ever released in terms of software and security updates and hardware. I
also refuse to be in a position to need to pay for a new device with the
same or greater cost in a few years because this device stops getting
updates, is even more antiquated than it is today, etc. For me, a display
like the orbit, along with an Android phone or iPhone with much better
hardware and software support is a much better use of my money, and is a
much cheaper proposition. I can make use of many apps on the Play Store, I
can still accomplish what I wish to accomplish with my laptop or with my
phone, I can still read Braille when I wish to do so, and I don't need to
pay the price for the Braille Sense, or any of these other blindness
note-taking devices.

It is important that everyone considers their own needs, the use that they
will put a device to, what they value out of a device, and their budgets
before making such a purchase.
