Does the all mail box show spam messages?  Maybe the message was in spam.  The next time you get the message, if it is in the wrong place, don't move it.  Tell us what folder it is in and you may get suggestions.

Subject: [TechTalk] a gmail question

Hi all,

I have a newsletter that landed in my all mail box on gmail today
instead of in my inbox. I checked the box and then hit the button to
move it to the inbox and it's there now but how can I insure that it'll
go to my inbox from now on and I don't have to go looking for it? Btw
there are other messages in the all mail box that also ended up in the
inbox but not the newsletter.

Thanks.

Re: Mouse

Hi Jim
 
Take a look through these notes.  If it says Windows 8, ignore it, it works the same in Windows 10:
Using the Touch Cursor
Certain applications, especially many of the modern-style apps found in Windows 8, do not always work as expected with JAWS when navigating with the standard
cursors such as the PC and Virtual PC cursors. Activating the new Touch Cursor enables you to use the ARROW keys on your computer's keyboard, or the controls
on your braille display, to navigate through the actual objects in an application similar to using gestures on the touch screen of a tablet. Application
objects include everything from menu bars, toolbars, and progress bars, to form controls, regions, links, etc. Press SHIFT+NUM PAD PLUS, or SHIFT+CAPS
LOCK+SEMICOLON if using the laptop keyboard layout, to activate the Touch Cursor. To turn it off, activate one of the other cursors, like the JAWS or PC
Cursor. Pressing the PC Cursor command (NUM PAD PLUS) will cause JAWS to say "Touch Cursor" and the Touch Cursor will remain active. If Tutor Messages
are enabled, JAWS will also speak the message "Double tap to activate PC cursor". Press the PC Cursor command twice quickly to turn off the Touch Cursor
and activate the PC Cursor.
 
The Touch Cursor is enabled by default in certain Windows 8 applications to improve navigation. These apps include News, Weather, and Store. Whenever you
move focus to one of these apps, the Touch Cursor is automatically activated. To automatically enable the Touch Cursor in another application, press INSERT+V
to open Quick Settings while focused in the application where you want to use the Touch Cursor, expand the Touch Cursor Options group, and then select
Automatic Activation. You must do this for every application where you want to have JAWS automatically turn on the Touch Cursor.
 
Navigating With the Touch Cursor
To move to the next or previous object on the screen, press RIGHT or LEFT ARROW. You can also use TAB or SHIFT+TAB.
 
To move by a specific object type, press UP or DOWN ARROW. By default, the UP and DOWN ARROWS will move by regions, or by groups if you are on the Windows
8 Start Screen. To change what object type these commands move by, press PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN to cycle through the available types using the navigation
rotor.
 
For example, if you want the UP or DOWN ARROW keys to move by headings, press PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN until you hear "headings. Now, pressing UP or DOWN ARROW
will move to the next or previous heading.
 
Press CTRL+HOME to move to the first object and press CTRL+END to move to the last object. To announce the current object, press INSERT+UP ARROW. To perform
a Say All, which will cause the Touch Cursor to move through the application and speak each object, press INSERT+DOWN ARROW.
 
As you navigate using the ARROW keys, the system focus does not follow the Touch Cursor. This allows you to freely navigate through objects without changing
the position of the PC Cursor or mouse pointer. Pressing SPACEBAR or ENTER on the current object will move focus to that object and perform the appropriate
action. For instance, opening a menu, selecting a check box, or activating a button or link. In addition, a rectangle will be displayed around the currently
selected object to visually indicate the location of the Touch cursor for sighted users.
 
To quickly move the Touch Cursor to the object that currently has focus, press INSERT+NUM PAD PLUS, or CAPS LOCK+APOSTROPHE if using the laptop keyboard
layout. JAWS will route the Touch Cursor to the currently selected object and announce it. The Touch Cursor will remain active after performing this command.
 
To determine what object types will be announced as you navigate with the Touch Cursor, press INSERT+V to open Quick Settings, expand the Touch Cursor
Options group, then move to Configure Types. This group lists all available types that can be navigated to using the Touch Cursor. Use the SPACEBAR to
select or clear a type. Types that are selected are announced while types that are not selected are ignored.
 
Note: The Configure Types option only appears in Quick Settings if the Touch Cursor is currently active when Quick Settings is opened.
 
Navigating the Windows 8 Start Screen
Previously, navigating Tiles on the new Windows 8 Start Screen was difficult to understand. Like a traditional desktop, the columns did not wrap, and because
tiles can be different sizes, it was very difficult to orient yourself when moving with the PC focus. We now suggest you consider using the Touch Cursor
mode to offer a more seamless and predictable way of learning the tiles and where they are located.
 
To begin, move focus to the Windows 8 Start Screen by pressing the WINDOWS key until you hear "Start Screen." Now you can activate the Touch Cursor by
pressing SHIFT+NUM PAD PLUS on a Desktop keyboard or SHIFT+CAPS LOCK+SEMICOLON on a Laptop keyboard. With the Touch Cursor on, you can use the single-finger
flick up and down gestures to move between the groups, or use UP and DOWN ARROWS to simulate the gestures, even if you do not have a touch screen. Note
that groups are generally not named by default, so JAWS will refer to the Group name based on whatever the first tile is in the group that gains focus.
At any point, you can use either a single-finger flick right or left on a Touch Screen or use the RIGHT and LEFT ARROWS to explore all tiles from your
current location. If you locate a Tile for an application you wish to launch, simply double tap the touch screen with a single finger, or just press ENTER
to launch the tile you are on.
 
Touch Cursor Navigation Quick Keys
While the Touch Cursor is active, you can use Navigation Quick Keys to quickly jump to various types of objects, such as regions, headings, links, form
controls, and so on. These commands are similar to the Navigation Quick Keys that are used when navigating HTML and PDF documents with the Virtual PC Cursor.
 
By default, Touch Navigation Quick Keys are not enabled when the Touch Cursor is activated. This allows you to fully use applications that support typing
in the main window. For example, the Windows 8 News app lets you type so you can quickly locate specific stories.
 
If you would like Touch Navigation Quick keys to be enabled automatically when the Touch Cursor is activated in a specific application, press INSERT+V
to open Quick Settings while focused in the application, navigate to the Touch Cursor Options group, and select Touch Quick Keys. You can also press INSERT+Z
while the Touch Cursor is active to temporarily toggle Touch Navigation Quick Keys on or off.
 
The following Navigation Quick Keys are available:
 
Note: You can add the SHIFT Key to any of these commands to move to the previous occurrence of that element.
 
A - Next radio button
B - Next button
C - Next combo box
D - Next document
E - Next edit field
F - Next form field
G - Next image
H - Next heading
I - Next list item
K - Next link
L - Next list
M - Next menu
O - Next tool bar
P - Next pane
Q - Next tab
R - Next region
S - Next occurrence of static text
T - Next table
U - Next group
V - Next tree view
X - Next check box
Z - Next status bar
Text Review
Text Review allows you to read the text contained inside an element using standard reading commands. If the element at the current Touch Cursor position
has text, such as a news article, pressing NUM PAD SLASH or INSERT+ENTER will activate Text Review. You can then use the ARROW keys to read the text as
if you were reading a regular document. Pressing the ESC key will exit Text Review and return to Touch Cursor navigation.
 
For example, in the News app, where the Touch Cursor is enabled by default, you could press UP or DOWN ARROW to move to the Top Stories region and then
press RIGHT ARROW to move to a particular story. When you find the article you want to read, you can press INSERT+ENTER or NUM PAD SLASH to switch to Text
Review so you can use the ARROW keys or the braille display to read the article. Once you are finished, press ESC to close Text Review and then use RIGHT
or LEFT ARROW to select another article from the current region, or UP or DOWN ARROW to move to a different region.
 
By default, JAWS will play a sound when you enter or exit Text Review mode. If you would rather have JAWS speak a message, press INSERT+V to open Quick
Settings, expand the Touch Cursor Options group, and clear the Use Sounds option.
 
Advanced Navigation
For advanced users, specifically those who may be involved with developing applications, Advanced Navigation provides more detail about all objects in
the UIA (User Interface UAutomation) structure.
 
With the standard Touch Cursor, you can only navigate to objects that are visible on the screen in the current application. In Advanced Navigation, the
Touch Cursor traverses all UIA objects in a hierarchical manner. All Objects, whether visible or not, can be traversed in Advanced Navigation.
 
To enable Advanced Navigation, press NUM PAD STAR, or CAPS LOCK+A if using the laptop keyboard layout, while the Touch Cursor is active. Once active, use
the LEFT or RIGHT ARROW keys to move to the previous or next sibling object and the UP or DOWN ARROW keys to move to the parrent object or the first child
object. To view more Advanced Navigation commands, press INSERT+H while this mode is active. Press NUM PAD STAR once more to turn off Advanced Navigation
and return to the standard Touch Cursor.

Kindle and third party book suppliers

Walter Ramage
 

Hi All.  This inquiry is on behalf of a sighted friend.  I don't have a kindle and have no desire to own one so have no knowledge about their specs.

 

My friend owns an old Kindle, one of the originals I think.  At the moment she can purchase from Amazon kindle books and download them to her device and if she comes across any book from another supplier she can copy it to her kindle.  Her daughter got a new kindle but it would appear the newer kindles will only allow the download of books from the Amazon Kindle store.  Is this correct?  Is there any current Kindle device that allows placing books from third party providers onto a kindle device and if so, which models.  Any help will be appreciated and I'll forward any response to her.  With many thanks.  Walter.

Thanks to those of you who have inlightetened me on the cclain radios thats good to that they are not junk like that man thinks they are.  If you are on mytelaspace the man's name is Tom.  hHe comes acrost like he think he knows everything about radio.  He thinks that there are no radios for the serious dxers and that includes the ccrain radios.  He is the man that thinks that over the air radio will go away in 20 or 30 years from now. I think that it would be good if somone would go on mytelaspace and subscrie to his all things radio board and deminstrate your ccrain radio on the board.  Prove to him that they are not junk. I think that he is discouraging people from buying radios because he thinks they are junk.  I would like to see somone chalenge him and probe to everyone on the board that radios are not junk.  If you want to subscribe to mytelaspace just call for a free account.  712-432-2831  I am the 70's man on mytelaspace.

The a.m. antenna I bought from the company was great! I live in Northern Nevada where there are lots of mountains that block a.m. reception and the antenna overcame much of that.

which one to try?

Hi all,
I have a question about two glucose readers.  One is the Freestyle Libre and the other is the Dexcom.  I know that the Libre app is accessible but I don't know anything about the Dexcom.  My doctor wants me to get the Dexcom because it has alarms and the Libre does not.  The downside of it is that you have to enter in codes every so often.  To me, if it is accessible that doesn't really matter because there is always Aira or some way to work that out.  Does anyone have any answers or where I can go to find out more?  Thanks in advance.

Years ago, I spoke with Bob Crane one day. He is the owner of the company. Apparently he just happened to be answering the phones that day. Anyhow, I purchased their a.m. radio antenna from the company at that time and I loved it. Mr. Crane was a very nice and helpful man. I told him that I was blind and he and I had a short but very pleasant conversation. It’s a good company.

Sluggish Boot on Windows 10

Samuel Wilkins
 

Hello all, I am having a problem with windows 10.  Since upgrading from windows 7, I have noticed that my computer is taking an inordinate amount of time to start up.  This happens when coming out of hibernation and when starting cold, it does not happen when choosing to restart.  I have set my computer to beep when it starts up, and I have found it takes approximately 1 minute and 20 seconds until I hear the beep.  This has only happened since upgrading to windows 10, as windows 7 used to start up fine.  I have a quad core I7 processor, and I have been told by sighted assistance that the screen stays blank until the beep. This happens even when fast boot is enabled.  Can anyone tell me how I could resolve this?  Thank you in advance.
