Finding the "Unread" messages in Outlook 365?

Vicky Vaughan
 

Hi List, Do any of you know the command to have Outlook 365 jump to each message that has not been read yet?

 

I am using this on a Windows 10 computer with Jaws 2020.

 

Thanks very much for any help!

 

Sincerely, Vicky V

JAWS2021 Beta 3 Download Link + What's New

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Okay, below is the Beta 3 download link for 32 and 64 bit systems, the Beta 3 report form link and what's new in the Beta 3 J2021.2010.47release.

Beta 3 32 and 64 Bit Download Link:
 
 
Beta Report Form Link:
 
 
What's new in Beta 3 for Jaws, ZoomText and Fusion:
 
Enhancements in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3
 
The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and Public Beta 3. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2021 and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 29 items
• Added the ability for Sharky to tell you a joke, currently only available in the English Version and for JAWS. Coming soon to other languages.
• Removed volume change announcements that some users reported hearing in Public Beta 2 when using certain keyboards and headsets with multimedia controls.
• In response to customer feedback, we have moved the link to open Convenient OCR results directly in Word to the bottom of the results window rather than
the top to make it less distracting.
• For Voice Assistant in the German Version of JAWS and ZoomText, the word "hey" has been added to the wake words Sharky and Zoomy. Therefore, you now
open Voice Assistant by saying "Hey Sharky" or "Hey Zoomy."
• Improved the results returned for Voice Assistant in German, which was based on customer feedback.
• Resolved a problem seen in Notepad where the flashing cursor on a braille display was blinking faster than normal after selecting all text in a short
document. This also made it difficult to read flash messages on the display.
• Updated Voice Assistant so you can now say "settings center" or "quick settings" to access those utilities.
• Resolved a reported issue when using the new Braille Panning feature which helps avoid blank spaces on the display. When moving in HTML or the Virtual
buffer, there were certain edit controls in the Chrome and Edge browsers where text was not being displayed as expected when panning.
• Resolved a reported issue in Outlook where JAWS was not echoing text as expected when typing in the body of a new message with Typing Echo set to Words.
• Removed the announcement of Tutor Messages in Microsoft Office Ribbons as they were very verbose when attempting to navigate.
• When opening a message in Outlook, resolved a reported issue where JAWS would not always start reading from the top if it has previously been opened.
It would often start reading from the previous location where you stopped reading the last time.
• Resolved an issue in MS Mail where JAWS was reporting list start and end info for each item in a list.
• Users can now use Voice Assistant to Toggle certain features of JAWS and Fusion. Screen Shade, Audio Ducking, Speech on Demand, and Virtual PC Cursor
can all be toggled if you say the word toggle, followed by the feature. And in the December Update of 2021, we will make it so you can just say the name
of the feature, and it will toggle the state and avoid the need for the word toggle.
• Resolved issues for the Picture Smart Feature where the "more results" link in the Results Viewer, was not properly getting more results and displaying
them as expected.
• Updated the Help for Voice Assistant by removing and adding some commands for the current update.
• Resolved an issue when selecting all text (CTRL+A) in a large Word document. This action would cause JAWS to hang for several seconds.
• Resolved a reported issue where exporting your Settings, could cause instability as you navigated the dialogs while using this feature in JAWS.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS would not remain in Forms Mode, while trying to compose email messages in OE Classic.
• Resolved several issues related to migrating settings from previous versions of JAWS to JAWS 2021.
• Resolved issues for customers reporting that JAWS did not recognize ScaleRichView controls used in certain editors. This custom window class will be
recognized by default in JAWS and Fusion.
• Resolved an issue reported where braille was not tracking to the Navigation Bar in Outlook 365 or Outlook 2016 when pressing F6.
• Additional User Settings are collected when running the FS Support Tool. This will help Technical Support to gather all the relevant data to help solve
customer issues.
• JAWS would leave Forms Mode and the Virtual Cursor would be on when creating an email in Thunderbird Email. This occurred when navigating with arrow
keys.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading the Auto Complete options in the Chrome Address bar.
• 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.
• The feature "Keyboard Lock" has been added to JAWS Command Search. To activate it, press INSERT+SPACE, L. This locks the keyboard and only allows informational
keystrokes to be used. To find the keystroke using JAWS Command Search, type the word "lock."
• Resolved reported issues with early public beta versions of 2021 where third-party scripts were not compiling. This was an issue when using WordPerfect
and Quattro Pro.
• Updated braille drivers provided by Papenmeire.
• Resolved reported issue in Power Point 365 in the Notes Area of a slide where JAWS was saying graphic while navigating text in the note.
list end
 
Enhancements in Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 3 items
• Resolved an issue when composing an email in Outlook where tracking by Fusion in the magnified view would fail. This occurred if you first selected text,
and then started typing to replace it.
• Resolved an issue where the Focus highlight is not tracking in Office Ribbons when JAWS Virtual Ribbon is enabled.
• Resolved an issue where Braille Viewer and Text Viewer were not remaining persistent and restarting after rebooting. They should stay active until the
users shuts them off in the future.
list end
 
Enhancements in ZoomText 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 4 items
• Resolved an issue in Mozilla Firefox 82 where ZoomText Focus Enhancement was failing to track as you read while navigating in Firefox.
• Resolved a Voice Assistant issue when trying to increase or decrease magnification to a Fractional Level. For example, asking Zoomy to set Magnification
to 1.2, resulted in getting 12X. the decimal point was being excluded.
• Resolved an issue where ZoomText speech would not stop when saying a Voice Assistant command. The feature was designed to interrupt speech.
• Resolved an issue in the Outlook Inbox when your Windows Display Setting Zoom Level is higher than 100%, and you navigate the inbox. The view is shifted
to the right as you navigate making it impossible to see the left edge of the window.
list end

I have one coming on the way. I spent entirely too much on that USBC to
lightning cable and the charging block, think it might be a 30-watt one, but
I imagine the old ones will still work.

Re: Any recommendations of instructional technology websites?

Sharon Hooley
 

What I was referring to are websites in general that give instructions for the general public. For example, I was trying to find a reliable source to learn how to prepare my iPhone for the upgrade to IOS 14, but didn't see Apple among the list of search results. But I'm glad you mentioned Accessibility Central info.

Thanks again,

Do you mean learning how to used various programs with tutorials or instructions for how to perform specic tasks or both?

There is a site called Accessibility Central. I haven't looked at it much but it has a lot of tutorials. While they tell you how to use programs with NVDA, if you know your screen-reader a lot of the information perhaps most should be usable by you. If you kknow your screen-reader, you will know how to do the equivalents that use screen-reader commands. Most of what people use most of the time are Windows and program commands.
Here is a link to the home page:
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/
Here is a link to the main tutorial page:
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials.html
Quite a way down the page you will see a link that says NVDA tutorials for other programs. The address is:
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

On that page, moving by heading appears to be the best way to see what is available. I haven't looked at the other pages enough to know if that is consistent. But that page may be the one where you will find most of what you want unless you want to learn about NVDA in some detail.

You won't see this if you move by headings on this page but there is something you or others may be interested in, a tutorial on Thunderbirdl.

Hi,

Are there any specific websites you prefer to go to learn technology-related how-to's and tips and tricks, including topics on computer and mobile devices? I googled something and came up with results I'm not sure are the most reliable sources of instructions.

Thanks for any input you may have,

Re: Issue With Thunderbird latest upgrade and Quick Folder Key Navigation Add On

Does it have anything to do with Tools for all add-ons, Update all add ons automatically?

Press:
alt t, arrow down to add ons, tab till you reach Tools for add ons, press that button, arrow down to Set all add ons to update automatically.

This is what I did and I haven't had any further trouble, although, I had been.

I'm not sure this is it, but I haven't seen it mentioned, so I thought I'd make a little noise.

Re: NVDA, A Space Hog

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Joe, this is going to have to be a collaborative effort due to a couple of complications.   SpaceSniffer is able to generate a text report, but believe it or not, it's entirely accessible until you hit the screen where you generate it.  I can't find any way to activate the Export button on that page with a screen reader.

TreeSize Free generates an exported PDF report, which most don't like, but I just found that its actual space analysis report in the program appears to be accessible, so you can go down through it line by line there once its done the scan.  Here's what I've put together as the "tutorial starter" and you'll need to give me feedback regarding what happens after the report is up and you've attempted to read through it to see what's hogging the space.  It could go perfectly smoothly or you could hit bumps.  It's your job to report back about that.
-----------------------------------

TreeSize Free Download Page – You can select either the installable version or portable version from the dropdown on that page.  Either will get the information you  need.  There is also a cluster of 3 radio buttons to indicate the region of the world for which you’re downloading:  North America/Europe/Other, followed by the Download Button.

This tutorial will presume you’ve downloaded the portable version (ZIP format) and have already unzipped it to the folder from which you wish to run the program and are sitting in that folder.

1.       Fire up TreeSizeFree.exe.

2.       Hit ALT+S,D [Scan Tab/Ribbon, Select Directory], you will then be presented with your drive options as well as a Select Directory to Scan option at the end of the submenu.  Pick what’s appropriate for what you’re doing.  I will choose a directory for the rest of this tutorial, and that directory will end up being C:\Program Files (x86)\NVDA.  If you use the directory option you will be presented with a typical File Explorer navigation dialog to select the folder you want.  You can, of course, type out the path in the Folder edit box if you know it.  The choice is yours.  As soon as you've selected/typed a folder hit the Select Folder button and the scan begins.

3.       If you keep focus on the TreeSizeFree window it will begin reading out the result of its analysis when it finishes, and for folder that will be very quickly.  What starts the report is the folder or drive level you chose to scan.  Down arrowing will take you through the various subfolders and files associated with it, reading out names, sizes, etc.

Re: anyone using nfl gamepass

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Tenny,

OK, this is a bit convoluted on the web page, but here is what you do.
1.  Use the address (for easier access) gamepass.nfl.com.  This takes you right to the listing of games.
2. The page is haphazzardly constructed so find the 2020 season and week 8.  Click on the week 8 link.
3.  After a bunch of listings of previous years and games, you should come to the listings for week 8.
4.  Sloly read over the listings line by line (they are abbreviation so you will have to listen closely and maybe if you're not sure use character navigation to determine for sure which listing you are looking at.
5.  Under each listing, there is a listen link. Click on this link.
6.  Again you are presented with a haphazard screen and you must move down to the listing of radio broadcast links.  They seem to include the TV  reference across all pages and sub pages for Game Pass.  In any case, you should see the listings in abbreviated form again, but this time, there is a combo box containing the home and away items.
7. Highlight this combo box and switch to edit mode NVDA insert + space bar or the JAWS equivalent of turning off the PC cursor.
8.  Use up and down arrows to select either home or away and press enter.
9.  I notice that under the combo box, there are a group of controls and one of them is play. But as soon as I chose the home/away item in the combo box, the stream started playing without any further action.

In this combo box, unlike the iPhone app, there are only two choices: home and away.  In the iPhone app, which has a totally different construction, there are 4 buttons for each game: two for home and away English and two for home and away Spanish.  I guess since your chosen language is English for the web version of this interface, the site assumes you only want the English links. Probably, if you chose Spanish as your default language when you signed up, the two choices would be the Spanish feeds--but this is just a guess on my part.

In conclusion, the site though clumsy--just as is the iPhone app--is useable once you  get used to it.
Good luck.

Re: Upgrading Memory and Storage

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Memory is designated as, for example PC4-21300 or PC3-12800, but both in SODIMM (laptop) form factor are two different memory types.  If you want the correct match for your machine, and the Crucial system scan shows PC3-12800, then that's the one you should buy, no matter what brand you do buy.  PC4 descriptions will also generally contain DDR4 somewhere and PC3 generally contain DDR3 or DDR3L.  The easiest thing to pay attention to is the PCx-99999 part, as it encapsulates pretty much everything with the exception of the form factor, which will be SODIMM for laptop memory or UDIMM or DRAM or SDRAM for desktop memory.

You will sometimes get multiple PCx-99999 options, and the one with the highest number in the 99999 part after the PCx number is the fastest among those.  It is not unusual for computer manufacturers to use memory that is not the fastest that a given motherboard can support, both for cost and availability reasons.

Sometimes the actual memory speed will not matter all that much, anyway, in average use.  But having more of it can make for anything from a moderate to massive performance improvement, depending on how "cramped" your memory capacity has been for what you are doing on a machine.

Re: NVDA, A Space Hog

Yes, I would be interested. The only thing I can think of that would

just delete my copy of NVDA and start over, but if there's something
else causing the issue, I'd like to know. Thanks in advance.--Joe

I won't slog through that unless I know you're interested.

There is no way that NVDA itself has created an 80GB folder.  Something else
has to be involved.

Re: NVDA, A Space Hog

Joe Orozco
 

I'm also at a loss. There are folders in there that don't seem to
belong, like that recycling bin folder. When I get home from work I'll
have to share the list of folders and files to see if someone can help
me compare the file directory they see on their system. I remember
creating a portable version of the application when I reloaded the app
on that particular laptop, but that should not create bulk over 80
gigs. Hell, even JAWS does not take up as much space as I thought it
might.

I thought that strange and assumed Windows must have bloated at some

so I started poking around and damned if I didn’t discover NVDA alone
was hogging up 80 gigs all on its own. There’s a recycling bin that
alone was taking up 40 gigs. The library folder was also heavy in

Mike & Fanus,

That's exactly what they are, and the first figure is (provided column order has not been rearranged from default) total size and the second free space.

When I'm using NVDA it announces what the number is (e.g., Total size) before the value is announced.
