Re: New Yahoo Account

John Gregory <john.gm.gregory@...>
 

Hi Mike,

I was searching around the Internet to see if I could find out how to solve
this problem, I too am getting the pop up dialog asking for my password etc,
and the only thing I could find is something which said you can only enable
pop messaging to download to Outlook or other email clients if you have a
'paid' account, otherwise the 'free' account only uses imap. However, that
blog was from 2013 and I don't know if that is still the case as I didn't
see anything on Yahoo website to indicate paid or free, only the free
signup. It also said that to enable pop you had to be in the 'full feature'
browser view to enable it in settings.

Will do some more investigative work and see if I can resolve the issue.

BTW, thanks for the Firefox tip, I'll try that and see if it is any better
than IE.

John.

Hi John,

If you're running Internet Explorer you won't find it. You need to run
Firefox. A friend of mine got a Yahoo account going for my wife & told me
that Firefox had to be used to get to that option. This friend had surgery
yesterday & won't be available fora while so, I won't be able to get any
more answers until he feels better. I'll let you know if I have any success
beforehand.
Take care.

Hi Mike,

Yes, know what you mean, I have been looking for that checkbox for ages! It
says you can allow less secure 3rd party clients if you so wish, but at your
own risk. However, it doesn't appear to provide the means of doing it! This
is in your Account Security link.

If you find it, let me know and I'll do the same for you.

Hi Mike,

Cannot vouch for the accessibility of the Yahoo email site, but the below
may help with your query.

The following should help you obtain the 'settings' menu in Yahoo. It
basically tells you how to switch between the basic and full featured views,
but read the 'adjust your screen reader' section to learn how to access the
new shortcut key (;) for the 'settings' menu.

There's a handy new keyboard shortcut, the semicolon, to access Yahoo Mail
Settings so you can choose the view (basic or full featured) you prefer.
Switching doesn't affect your email messages, only the way they're displayed
and the number of commands and options you're presented with.

Just log into Yahoo Mail as you always do, press the semicolon key to access
the Mail Settings, choose "Mail Version," then either "Full-Featured" or
"Basic." Repeat the same steps to switch back at any time.

Screen reader users should follow the steps below to prevent the screen
reader from intercepting the Yahoo Mail Settings keyboard shortcut:

1. Log into your Yahoo Mail account;

2. Adjust your Screen Reader as necessary:

a. Using NVDA, press Insert-Spacebar to enter "focus" mode";

b. Using JAWS, press Insert-Z to turn off the JAWS virtual cursor;

c. Using VoiceOver, press the left and right arrows simultaneously to turn
Quick Nav off;

3. Press semicolon to access Yahoo Mail Settings;

4. Press the Tab key several times until you hear "Mail Version" then
press the Down arrow key to check (select) Full-Featured or Basic radio
button;

5. Press the Tab key several times to move to the Save button and press
the Enter key.

HTH

I have used the program in the past, but not recently.  If I remember correctly, there is an older version which is more accessible than the latest version.  However,since I am not currently using it, I don't have any download links for the more accessible version at the moment.  I have seen other members post download links for it so if you wait a while I'm sure someone else will provide one.

Re: Program Manager In Windows 7

Carlos
 

Program Manager is the internal name used by the main explorer.exe process.  The internal name is a remnant from old versions of Windows.  This process is  basically responsible for most of the Windows graphical shell including the desktop.  Usually this is only seem when there is some kind of problem such as the explorer.exe process freezing up or crashing.  I'm not sure what would be causing the problem in this particular case, but you cannot disable this process from running at startup since without it you would essentially have no graphical shell/interface.

Hi All,

Re: Program Manager In Windows 7

Michael Mote
 

Mike, this used to come up on my computer all the time.  In my case, the program manager window was coming up because Windows was freezing up on me.  I determined that it was a memory issue, and that I didn’t have enough in my system to run all of the processes that I wanted to run.  You may want to consider stopping some of the processes, and the applications that start when the computer boots up.  Go into the Msconfig area, and look at what is starting up.  If you can disable some of these programs, it may help in performance.  Generally, I disable anything that says Manager or helper next to it.  You would be surprised as to how many things start up that are not necessary.  Also, you may consider stopping Windows from Indexing files.  This happens in the background, and makes it easier to search for things like messages in your email. 

Hope this helps!

A Warning To All iPhone Users #article

I recently came across this article. The link is below.


Re: New Yahoo Account

Mike B. <mwb5781@...>
 

Hi John,
 
If you're running Internet Explorer you won't find it.  You need to run Firefox.  A friend of mine got a Yahoo account going for my wife & told me that Firefox had to be used to get to that option.  This friend had surgery yesterday & won't be available fora while so, I won't be able to get any more answers until he feels better.  I'll let you know if I have any success beforehand.
Take care.

Hi Mike,

Cannot vouch for the accessibility of the Yahoo email site, but the below
may help with your query.

The following should help you obtain the 'settings' menu in Yahoo. It
basically tells you how to switch between the basic and full featured views,
but read the 'adjust your screen reader' section to learn how to access the
new shortcut key (;) for the 'settings' menu.

There's a handy new keyboard shortcut, the semicolon, to access Yahoo Mail
Settings so you can choose the view (basic or full featured) you prefer.
Switching doesn't affect your email messages, only the way they're displayed
and the number of commands and options you're presented with.

Just log into Yahoo Mail as you always do, press the semicolon key to access
the Mail Settings, choose "Mail Version," then either "Full-Featured" or
"Basic." Repeat the same steps to switch back at any time.

Screen reader users should follow the steps below to prevent the screen
reader from intercepting the Yahoo Mail Settings keyboard shortcut:

1.    Log into your Yahoo Mail account;

2.    Adjust your Screen Reader as necessary:

a. Using NVDA, press Insert-Spacebar to enter "focus" mode";

b. Using JAWS, press Insert-Z to turn off the JAWS virtual cursor;

c. Using VoiceOver, press the left and right arrows simultaneously to turn
Quick Nav off;

3.    Press semicolon to access Yahoo Mail Settings;

4.    Press the Tab key several times until you hear "Mail Version" then
press the Down arrow key to check (select) Full-Featured or Basic radio
button;

5.    Press the Tab key several times to move to the Save button and press
the Enter key.

Re: Spoof email messages and eloquence

But you didn't explain why you did this.  You just said people can do it.  Many people, like me, don't care whether someone is trying to crash the synthesizer.  We just don't want to be bothered with it one way or another.  If you are going to recommend an action and you know of an alternative such as the one I gave, it is misleading to cause people to believe that spoken text must be present in the pronounced as field by omission. 
 
If you want to have something spoken, that's your choice.  But when advising people, it should not be described as though it were, by implication, necessary.

Whether there is or is not a need to have replacement text in the pronounced as field is a subjective opinion. I choose to be aware if possible when someone is  trying to monkey around with my screen reader to at least exclude any other possible reason for my losing speech. The replacement text allows me this feedback.

Switching  synthesizers does work. This is what  I explained in my earlier post.

In an  ideal world, FS would  have already addressed these anomalies, but  in the meantime, this can be a quick fix.

If you want something not to be spoken, just place one space in the pronounced as field.  There is no need to have a text string such as you describe in the pronounced as field.

 

However, if you do add the problem strings to the dictionary, when moving up and down in the list of words in the dictionary list, the string will attempt to be spoken.  Therefore, avoid moving to those words unless you switch synthesizers first.  I don't recall if I ever tried this, but switching synthesizers should allow you to move to one of these character strings without problems.  I haven't played around enough to know if moving very quickly will work.  You could move from the end of the list up or move from the top of the list down and stop before you get to the character string.  or you could switch synthesizers before working in the word list.  Then, when you have found the word you want to edit, as long as it isn't one of the crash strings, switch back to Eloquence so you can edit it or remove it or whatever.  If you edit it, you will then know how Eloquence will pronounce the replacement string.

A work-around I’ve used is to  add the offending  string of  text to the Jawws dictionary  manager and  replace  it with something like Jaws crash  word or  something along  those lines. I select eloquence as the pronunciation synth and that takes care of it  for the  future. This I do  using an alternative synth. Vocalizer  expressive for example.

there is a regular expression built in to the code of the Eloquence driver for NVDA that specifically keeps those codes from getting to Eloquence itself.

No, it is actually not from NVDA or JAWS. It is, in fact, from Eloquence itself, and in the drivers for NVDA, there are regular expressions that block the strings from going through. Simply looking for strings isn't enough to block these crash codes. There are actually patterns to them, that need to be coded in through a regular expression.

Good evening, listers, Brian Zolo here, Bryan Carter’s correct address is BCarver@....  The b and the c are both upper case.  If anyone can send the exact character string that is crashing eloquence it would really help.  Right now I’m using Vocalizer Tom and once I upgrade to windows ten and jaws 18 I will go with the new vocalizer voices.  The new generation of Vocalizer voices sounds quite natural but speech is very subjective.  I have some hearing loss and in that sense Eloquence is still the most hearable for me especially as I like to have my speech at high speed.  I apologize for the incorrect email address I provided last evening.  Have a great day and a great weekend1  bZ1

Hi Mike,

Cannot vouch for the accessibility of the Yahoo email site, but the below
may help with your query.

The following should help you obtain the 'settings' menu in Yahoo. It
basically tells you how to switch between the basic and full featured views,
but read the 'adjust your screen reader' section to learn how to access the
new shortcut key (;) for the 'settings' menu.

There's a handy new keyboard shortcut, the semicolon, to access Yahoo Mail
Settings so you can choose the view (basic or full featured) you prefer.
Switching doesn't affect your email messages, only the way they're displayed
and the number of commands and options you're presented with.

Just log into Yahoo Mail as you always do, press the semicolon key to access
the Mail Settings, choose "Mail Version," then either "Full-Featured" or
"Basic." Repeat the same steps to switch back at any time.

Screen reader users should follow the steps below to prevent the screen
reader from intercepting the Yahoo Mail Settings keyboard shortcut:

1. Log into your Yahoo Mail account;

2. Adjust your Screen Reader as necessary:

a. Using NVDA, press Insert-Spacebar to enter "focus" mode";

b. Using JAWS, press Insert-Z to turn off the JAWS virtual cursor;

c. Using VoiceOver, press the left and right arrows simultaneously to turn
Quick Nav off;

3. Press semicolon to access Yahoo Mail Settings;

4. Press the Tab key several times until you hear "Mail Version" then
press the Down arrow key to check (select) Full-Featured or Basic radio
button;

5. Press the Tab key several times to move to the Save button and press

Hi Mike,

Yes, know what you mean, I have been looking for that checkbox for ages! It
says you can allow less secure 3rd party clients if you so wish, but at your
own risk. However, it doesn't appear to provide the means of doing it! This
is in your Account Security link.

If you find it, let me know and I'll do the same for you.

John.

Hi John,

I have the settings, but I just need to access an option that will allow my
Outlook Express client to receive email from the Yahoo server using POP3.
Take care.

Hi Mike,

Is it the pop settings you want in order to set up the account in Outlook?

John.

Hi John,

Here's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to enable my Outlook Express using
POP3 to get the mail from Yahoo following the steps below.

Step 1: Enable Yahoo Mail for POP access
list of 5 items
In
Yahoo Mail,
mouse over the Settings icon | Click Settings.
Click Accounts.
Under Email addresses, click on your Yahoo account name.
Go to the bottom of the page under "Access your Yahoo Mail elsewhere" |
Select POP.
Click Save.

Here's the problem. I've figured out how to get to settings / accounts....,
but when I get here,
Go to the bottom of the page under "Access your Yahoo Mail elsewhere" |
Select POP.

I'm not getting the POP option! Any suggestions?
Take care.

Hi Mike,

Cannot vouch for the accessibility of the Yahoo email site, but the below
may help with your query.

The following should help you obtain the 'settings' menu in Yahoo. It
basically tells you how to switch between the basic and full featured views,
but read the 'adjust your screen reader' section to learn how to access the
new shortcut key (;) for the 'settings' menu.

There's a handy new keyboard shortcut, the semicolon, to access Yahoo Mail
Settings so you can choose the view (basic or full featured) you prefer.
Switching doesn't affect your email messages, only the way they're displayed
and the number of commands and options you're presented with.

Just log into Yahoo Mail as you always do, press the semicolon key to access
the Mail Settings, choose "Mail Version," then either "Full-Featured" or
"Basic." Repeat the same steps to switch back at any time.

Screen reader users should follow the steps below to prevent the screen
reader from intercepting the Yahoo Mail Settings keyboard shortcut:

1. Log into your Yahoo Mail account;

2. Adjust your Screen Reader as necessary:

a. Using NVDA, press Insert-Spacebar to enter "focus" mode";

b. Using JAWS, press Insert-Z to turn off the JAWS virtual cursor;

c. Using VoiceOver, press the left and right arrows simultaneously to turn
Quick Nav off;

3. Press semicolon to access Yahoo Mail Settings;

4. Press the Tab key several times until you hear "Mail Version" then
press the Down arrow key to check (select) Full-Featured or Basic radio
button;

5. Press the Tab key several times to move to the Save button and press
the Enter key.

HTH

John.

Thanks much.
