Re: Thunderbird help needed

I don't have a current version of JAWS on my computer because I haven't used JAWS for years. On my very old version, when I left arrow, I don't hear anything. Using NVDA, I hear the address I am on. If I left arrow more than once, I move to other addresses, one left arrow moves me to another address and if I left arrow again, I am on another address, etc. With JAWS, the only way I can hear the addresses is to left arrow once, press enter, use read current line to read the address, press escape, left arrow twice to get to the next address, press enter, use read to end, press escape, left arrow three times, press enter, use read current line, etc.

Others who use JAWS may have other suggestions.

I don't know how you solve the problem. NVDA reads the information if I
left arrow. It may be that using the read current line command, JAWS key
numpad 8 in the desktop layout, I don't know the laptop layout, may read it.
Or it may be that JAWS doesn't support that change in NVDA. I have another
suggestion but I'll wait to see what you report.

Gene,

I think the problem occurred when I upgraded to Thunderbird 78.4.0. For
an example:

When I replied to this message, I wanted to see if the message was going
only to you or going to the list. In the older version of Thunderbird
which I had up until today, I could just shift, tab back to the "to"
field and Jaws would read to me who was going to receive this message.

But now, I can't do that. I can get to the "to" field, but what Jaws
reads is 2 with one address, use left arrow to focus on it". But the
left arrow doesn't get me there. If I continue shift, tabbing it
says"other types of address field" and another shift, tab takes me to
the BCC,CC". So I can never find out to whom the message is going. "I
suspect there is just a new keystroke I have to figure out, but I
haven't hit on the right combination yet.

Probably without using Thunderbird yourself, this won't make much sense
so I am hoping someone on the list does use Thunderbird and has worked
out the right keystroke.

But thanks for your willingness to listen to my dilemma.

You can write documents offline. You can also run Android apps, and manyn apps work just fine offline. You can run Linux apps on some Chromebooks as well.

It is still a hassle to do that with an iPad especially if you are going to be using dropbox. It is just not as easy as it is with a windows or Mac computer. It’s all the sandboxing on the iPad that makes it a bit difficult. This is not to say that you cannot do it on the iPad, it would just be easier on the surface.

Presuming you're talking under Windows 10, the same way you make any other browser on your system the default browser:

1. Open Settings.

3. Choose Default Apps in the Apps Pane.
4. Navigate to the Web Browser entry, which is a button, and that button will show whatever happens to be your current default web browser.  Activate it.

Subject: [TechTalk] Recycle bin issue, the solution

Hi all. As requested here's a summary of the problem I
encountered with the recycle bin and how I got it fixed all
be it by trial and error, mostly error!



I found out that by accident when deleting a file that I
didn't get a delete confirmation dialogue but by the time I
discovered this I had deleted a file I didn't want to
delete. I went to the recycle bin to retrieve it but it
wasn't there, nothing was there (this is a new computer and
I'm just getting it set up in the manner I like).



I went to the recycle bin properties and checked the check
box that would in future give me the delete dialogue and
then tested it by deleting a file I didn't want to keep.
However, although I got a delete confirmation dialogue it
asked me if I was sure I wanted to permanently delete the
file and not asking if I was sure I wanted to send the file
to the recycle bin.



I went to the recycle bin properties and the first thing I
got was 1. "Settings for selected location group" then a
list of drives I had connected.



Then there was:

2. "Custom size radio button checked."

3. "Maximum size:"

4. "Don't move files to the recycle bin. Don't move files
radio button checked."

5. "Immediately when deleted radio button checked."

6. "display delete confirmation dialogue checked box
checked."



Then the OK button etc.



I was Unable to uncheck any of those options except #6 but I
didn't want to uncheck that one.



I tried every combination I could think of and all without
success including using 3 different screen readers.



I then decided to go downstairs to my computer in the lounge
which is Win10 and went to the recycle bin properties.
Those properties had the don't send to recycle bin unchecked
and the 2nd one checked but also where there was a list of
my connected external drives the lounge computer had "local
disc C" but that didn't show on the upstairs computer.



I then went back upstairs and disconnected all my external
drives so the upstairs and lounge were the same. I now went
back into recycle bin properties and "Local disc" now
showed.



I tabbed to "custom size" and it was checked and when I
tabbed past Max size to Don't send deleted files to the
recycle bin the radio button was unchecked.



The big moment was when I deleted an unwanted file and I got
the delete confirmation dialogue but this time it asked me
if I was sure I wanted to send the file to the recycle bin
and of course I said yes. I went to the recycle bin and
there the file was, Success!



Just out of interest I connected one of my external drives
and tried deleting an unwanted file; got the confirmation
dialogue and it went to the recycle bin.



I still don't have an answer as to why I couldn't get the
don't send to recycle bin radio buttons unchecked and then
eventually did so. The only circumstantial change made was
to disconnect my external drives and that then allowed the
"local Disc" option to appear, other than that I've no idea
what caused the change.



Sorry this has been a bit long winded but didn't know how
other to describe what happened. Walter.

It will depend on the options you wish to have, but if you just go to Best Buy and do a search for "Lenovo Windows tablet" you will get the models they currently have.

I then decided to go downstairs to my computer in the lounge which is Win10 and went to the recycle bin properties.  Those properties had the don’t send to recycle bin unchecked and the 2nd one checked but also where there was a list of my connected external drives the lounge computer had “local disc C” but that didn’t show on the upstairs computer.

 

I then went back upstairs and disconnected all my external drives so the upstairs and lounge were the same.  I now went back into recycle bin properties and “Local disc” now showed.

 

I tabbed to “custom size” and it was checked and when I tabbed past Max size to Don’t send deleted files to the recycle bin the radio button was unchecked.

 

The big moment was when I deleted an unwanted file and I got the delete confirmation dialogue but this time it asked me if I was sure I wanted to send the file to the recycle bin and of course I said yes.  I went to the recycle bin and there the file was, Success!

 

Just out of interest I connected one of my external drives and tried deleting an unwanted file; got the confirmation dialogue and it went to the recycle bin.

 

I still don’t have an answer as to why I couldn’t get the don’t send to recycle bin radio buttons unchecked and then eventually did so.  The only circumstantial change made was to disconnect my external drives and that then allowed the “local Disc” option to appear, other than that I’ve no idea what caused the change.

 

Sorry this has been a bit long winded but didn’t know how other to describe what happened.  Walter.

Hi there FOLKS!

Was reading about a talking bathroom scale on amazon on this list, and someone gave a model and the order info for a particular one.  I seemed to have lost that email and was wondering if someone might re-post it please! THANKS Much!

Hello,
I am going to preface this by saying I am an apple fan. However, the Surface would be much better for document editing on the go. It is still a hassle to do that with an iPad especially if you are going to be using dropbox. It is just not as easy as it is with a windows or Mac computer. It’s all the sandboxing on the iPad that makes it a bit difficult. This is not to say that you cannot do it on the iPad, it would just be easier on the surface.

Joe, thank you so much for the offer. I'd like to do a bit more research before I actually purchase something so if you know of someone else who would like your machine, its ok if you offer it to them instead.

Re: talking scales

On other lists many spoke highly of the taylor talking scale, amazon link below. It goes up to 440 lbs. so you have lots of room to expand.
You might check if weak batteries are the problem before investing in a new scale.

Hello, I think my scale has issues and I have had from 2003. So does anyone know of a good talking scale that is accurate? I went from waying 130 to 139 back to 130 in the span of 3 minutes. I know my cat does not way 20 pounds, she may way 15 pounds. So it has to be the scale showing it???s age! Cheers Heather
