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?

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....,

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

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

Hi Mike, try using the mobile version, and if that doesn't work go to the regular Yahoo Mail. I don't think that you can adjust the mobile version now. So you might just have to go to the regular yahoo mail site.

You said you just want something for when your main system goes down.  You might do well, perhaps best, to purchase either a desktop or laptop from the organization in Texas that sells refurbished computers to blind people at cheap prices. 
 
I believe desktops are 100 dollars and laptops are 140 dollars.  If you are only going to use the laptop as an emergency machine, one of those machines may meet your very infrequent and temporary needs.

Re: Laptop recommendations

Gerald Levy
 

 
This is an excellent suggestion.  The other advantage of acquiring a refurbished laptop from Computers for the Blind is that it comes with NVDA and a demo version of JAWS already installed, so you have speech right out of the box.  Plus  it also comes with a number of other blind-friendly programs like Windows Live Mail and Jarte work processor which simplifies set up.  Most of the computers they provide are Dells.

You said you just want something for when your main system goes down.  You might do well, perhaps best, to purchase either a desktop or laptop from the organization in Texas that sells refurbished computers to blind people at cheap prices. 
 
I believe desktops are 100 dollars and laptops are 140 dollars.  If you are only going to use the laptop as an emergency machine, one of those machines may meet your very infrequent and temporary needs.

The problem with Dell in the past is that most of their machines were just too expensive, but now they have joined the rest of the computing market and have started offering reasonable deals over the last few years.

Re: Spoof email messages and eloquence

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.

Hi Group,

 

I really hope Freedom Scientific comes up with a permanent solution.  I am using Eloquence with NVDA and the same strings that are crashing JAWS are not crashing NVDA with Eloquence.  This makes me believe that the crashes are caused by some kind of interface between JAWS and Eloquence--not Eloquence itself.

HI,

If you have an idea of what you are looking for in a laptop, you can sometimes find a good bargain at Amazon. Last year I checked all the online sites for what I was looking for. I knew my general hardware requirements and price range. I checked all the major sites every day for about two weeks because I had the time. One day Amazon had had the exact machine I was looking for in my price range so I grabbed it right away. There was only two left in stock. About six months later someone else I know needed one so I went on amazon and got another one for exactly the same price. The

The only difference was mine had Windows 8.1 and the other one was purchased after the release of Windows 10 so had Windows 10 pre-installed.

Hope that helps,

Hello everyone,

 

Based on feedback from current members, the Tech Talk chat list has been converted from a subgroup to a primary/parent group.  What this change basically means is that anyone will now be able to subscribe to the chat group without the need to also subscribe to the main Tech Talk group.  The difference being that subgroups only allow members of the parent group to subscribe.  Hopefully this will mean additional members who can help liven up the chat list a bit so feel free to spread the word.  The main page for the new list is here.
https://groups.io/g/TechTalkChat/
You can subscribe to the list using the following address:
TechTalkChat+subscribe@groups.io
And to post to the list, send messages to:
TechTalkChat@groups.io

These addresses will also be displayed in the message footers for reference as usual.  The old subgroup has been effectively closed.

FW: Receive a Free Gift for Christmas

TerriLynne Pomeroy <tl1@...>
 

Season's Greetings from the Braille Superstore,

http://www.BrailleSuperstore.com?Source=Newsletter

It's the most wonderful time of the year! From roasted chestnuts to
Christmas carols, every family has their own special traditions they look
forward to ... and we're no different! Here at The Braille Superstore, our
tradition is that we give away free products - and the time has come once
again to do just that!

Now, shopping at the mall can be a lot of fun, but there are an awful lot of
crowds. The roads may be icy, the car will be freezing cold, and you'll be
late for dinner. Yes they have super good sales at the mall, but our sale is
better. You see, some of their items are discounted. Some of ours, on the
other hand, are free!

So, because we know you love shopping from the comfort of your living room,
we've stocked the shelves with more great gift ideas than ever for someone
who's blind or visually impaired. Highlights include a Braille watch (either
with a battery or wind-up) with steel hands that don't move when you touch
them. We have a talking keychain that speaks both the time and date for
under $14, and lots of new Braille books for your reading enjoyment. And
don't forget that, with Unified English Braille fast taking hold, all of our
Braille books are offered in UEB in addition to standard grade 2 contracted
Braille. To make a long story short, if you have someone on your shopping
list this holiday season who is blind or has low vision, we have just what
you're after ... at prices that cannot be beat.

But, that's not all! If you place your order within the next week, we will
throw in a free gift for you to enjoy or to pass along to that special
someone. All you have to do is spend at least $20 with us, and we'll give
you a high-quality, recording memo magnet, to stick to your fridge and keep
track of reminders, notes, and of course, the ever-popular shopping list.

Now, small and electronic is always good, but for orders of $50, we'll
sweeten the deal a little. OK, a lot. Instead of a little recording magnet,
we'll give you a talking indoor-outdoor thermometer. It's attractively
gift-boxed, fits in a large stocking, and would be enjoyed by everyone -
even you!

It's atomic ... it's portable ... it's valuable ... and it's free! Yes,
we're giving away a 30-dollar talking clock with every order over $100. It
speaks the time and date, it has lots of cool features, and thanks to its
built-in radio, it's always right. No, it doesn't just think it's right,
like some of your friends or coworkers. It really is, all the time.

Now, one final thought for those of you who want the ultimate deal. If you
spend over $250 with us on your next order, we won't just give you the
atomic talking clock, we'll throw in a hand-crafted, all-teek,
expertly-shaped Braille Dolphin Puzzle as well. Between the clock for your
friend and the puzzle for her son or daughter, we'll help you make a start
on your Christmas list without costing you a dime!

So, how do you take advantage of this amazing one-time offer? It's simple!

Just make sure to read specs when purchasing something like a Best Buy deal to insure it has the features you want.  Some people fall in love with the low price and don't stop to look at features.  This can be disappointing later if you realize it doesn't have so and so feature you were expecting.

I’d love to get one of the xps 13 models but I don’t need that much power. I just want something that I can use in case my main system goes down. I’ll have to check the Dell website for sales.

I rarely tend to praise specific manufacturers, but I have been somewhat impressed with Dell quality the last couple of years.

Hi list, I’m considering getting myself a new laptop in the next couple of months and I would like your opinions on two different brands. I’m looking at either Acer or Dell. Has anyone had good or bad experiences with either brand.
