Re: using Jaws 15 how to stop it from saying block quote

Gene
 

I'm not sure what you are asking.  If you view mail as html, there are some links, such as in a newsletter, that you will see as links that you won't otherwise.  If, for example there is a click here link or a link that is the title of an article, you will see those kinds of links as links. 
 
You will also see formatting if someone sends a message in html and uses html formatting.  It's a little safer to read mail as plain text.

When you are in a message body, open quick settings with JAWS key v.  Look
down the settings, and change what you want to change.  When you find
something you want to change, such as block quotes, use the space bar to
move through the available settings.  You may repeat the settings as often
as you want by continuing to press the space bar.  Once you have changed
whatever settings you want to change for as many items as you wish, press

Well, if you have a wipe, you can clean it!  They have wipes that do not have alcohol in them and their made for cleaning electronics, the name exscapes me right now!  Also, get a can of conpressed air to get the dust off!  I use air to clean my laptop and keyboards!  IT is good to make sure your fans are dust free and if you are adventurous or know anyone who can, get a cleaning kit for a computer or small vacuum to clean the inside of your desktop!  I would not do this with the laptop, just use the air to get where the fans are to make sure the dust is cleared!

I think we all can hear the frustration in your post, so maybe here's a
few things that may help out a bit.

1. When you get a call center rep you can't understand, tell them you
can't understand them and you want another rep. I do it all the time
and it works. Sometimes they try to insist on helping. Just keep saying
I can't understan you please transfer me to another  rep. It works.

2. I'm not sure if you called the Microsoft accessibility support
number or not. I just used them last week and there was no problems.
Don't get me wrong, I still waited 25 minutes to get a rep, but that's
to be expected.
Here's the number: 1–800-936–5900

3. If your talking about laptop keys sticking, then you should know
they sell the little rubber bouncy things that are seated underneath
the keys on ebay and other sites. They sell replacement keys with the
mounting ring and the little rubber bouncy thing for about 4 bucks a piece.

VMG File Format Description

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

Someone wanted a definition of and method of opening a VMG file type.

If you go to Google and type file type:<file extension> such as file extension:mp3 you will get references as to just what the file type is. When I did this in Google with the VMG file type, here is what I got from one result.

What is a vmg file and how do I open a vmg file?
A VMG is a plain text format file used for storing SMS text messages on Nokia cell phones. The file contains header information such as the sender, date and time, as well as the actual message, and is saved in a null-separated text format which makes it easy to parse.


--

Signature:
They ask me if I'm Happy, I say "yes."
They ask me "How happy are you?"
I say: "I'm as happy as a stowaway chimpanzee on a banana boat!"


Re: unusual file extension

ratshtron <northstar1950@...>
 

well, if you still have nokia pc suite, you can open them with that. you may also try changing the .vmg to .txt and then open them with notepad and see if you can get the text out of the files.

Promotional software is not the same as viruses. Also, I
think you are misunderstanding how it works. You download
the stub package and run it.
The stub package then makes different offers such as
toolbars and so on.
You can usually refuse these offers, but if you are not
careful to refuse them, they will be installed along with
your legitimate software. So whether the person downloads
this stub package directly from CNET or somewhere you have
hosted the file like Dropbox, the problem will still exist.

The problem is that CNET now quite often uses their
own stub
downloader which is what includes the promotional
software. So
whether they download it directly from CNET or someone
else
hosting the file, there is still the risk of
unintentionally
installing junkware.

Hey,
it

On a mobile device, install and run this app,

Betternet

tap the "Connect" button, you can then unblock and
access all
websites and services including Facebook, Twitter,
YouTube or
other websites banned at your location or
workplace. Simple as
that.
What this app provides is a free unlimited Virtual
Private

service. It detects your location automatically and
connects
you to the nearest server that can access all
websites and
services, therefore bypassing your default server
that may
restrict your access right.
Besides encrypting your data for security, this app
also allows
you to surf the Web anonymously. It changes your IP
address so
that your online identity is anonymous and internet
activity is
hidden. With this, you can gain access to geo
restricted
services such as Netflix that limits its
availability to some
countries only.
Better still, this app does not impose irritating
ads on the
web pages you're browsing, though it does
occasionally
recommend third party apps to you. This is how
Betternet works
for free with no ads but covers its costs from
promoters who
pay Betternet in return for recommendation.

Hi,
Try notepad? Rename the extention to txt, and try. This, for me, I'm able to read almost anything this way.

Subject: [TechTalk] unusual file extension

Hi all. I have a number of old files on my computer and I've just
re-discovered them after a few years. The problem is, I can't open them.
The file extension is.vmg and this is an old Nokia text message format.
Does anybody know how I can open these files, at least long enough to try
and save them as text files? I really don't want to purchase any software
if I can avoid it because I don't know if what's in these files would
warrant spending a lot of money on it and in any case, If I managed to save
the files as text files then I could delete the originals and then the
software would become redundant. Is there an on line service that will open
them and allow me to at least read them. With thanks. Walter.

When you are in a message body, open quick settings with JAWS key v. Look
down the settings, and change what you want to change. When you find
something you want to change, such as block quotes, use the space bar to
move through the available settings. You may repeat the settings as often
as you want by continuing to press the space bar. Once you have changed
whatever settings you want to change for as many items as you wish, press
enter to save the changes and return you to the program window you were
previously in.

Your home computer may not be indicating bloc quotes because you are not
reading mail as html at home. On your friends computer, messages are being
read as html and you are in the virtual pc cursor.

Promotional software is not the same as viruses. Also, I
think you are misunderstanding how it works. You download
the stub package and run it.
The stub package then makes different offers such as
toolbars and so on.
You can usually refuse these offers, but if you are not
careful to refuse them, they will be installed along with
your legitimate software. So whether the person downloads
this stub package directly from CNET or somewhere you have
hosted the file like Dropbox, the problem will still exist.

The problem is that CNET now quite often uses their

software. So
whether they download it directly from CNET or someone
else
hosting the file, there is still the risk of
unintentionally
installing junkware.

Hey,
it
is just a tap on the screen.
On a mobile device, install and run this app,

Betternet

tap the "Connect" button, you can then unblock and
access all
websites and services including Facebook, Twitter,
YouTube or
other websites banned at your location or
workplace. Simple as
that.
What this app provides is a free unlimited Virtual
Private
Network
(VPN)
service. It detects your location automatically and
connects
you to the nearest server that can access all
websites and
services, therefore bypassing your default server
that may
restrict your access right.
Besides encrypting your data for security, this app
also allows
you to surf the Web anonymously. It changes your IP
address so
that your online identity is anonymous and internet
activity is
hidden. With this, you can gain access to geo
restricted
services such as Netflix that limits its
availability to some
countries only.
Better still, this app does not impose irritating
ads on the
web pages you're browsing, though it does
occasionally
recommend third party apps to you. This is how
Betternet works
for free with no ads but covers its costs from
promoters who
pay Betternet in return for recommendation.
You can install Betternet to your Android or iOS
mobile devices
from the links provided below, or go to the
download page to

Although I am still subscribed, I got very frustrated with the
moderation and sometimes the lack thereof. I very much dislike the
fact that there are more and more persons on Blindtech who are cross
posting all over the place.
It is not unusual to see the same message no fewer than five or six
times on various lists. And I hope that those cross posts do not show
up here.
This
prompts a question. Is there a utility which will somehow delete
cross posted messages? Setting up filters to do this would be a huge
undertaking.

Lol, TechTalk is my 11th list, granted at least 3 of them are nearly
inactive ... it gets a bit hectic toward the end of the week and over the
weekend when I'm out trying to earn a nickel and don't have time to wade
through all those emails ...

I can certainly see Flor's point and it is really up to the individual to
decide to how many lists they are subscribed and if it is too much. LOL see
my previous comments about not personally subscribing to many lists at once.

Hi Flor,
All these things are a personal preference. It can be looked how you
mean. But those of us who are going through hundreds and hundreds of
messages, with an email client that supports no filters, this can be
tedious. I just deal with it, though, I know how life could be easier.
But then again, why do I subscribe, if I can't do it? So yeah, its
really a personal preference, in my opinion.

Rajmund,
What myou may consider unnecessary, may be considered needful by the
poster who believes that they are in urgent need of help, or where the
problem being written about is a difficult one to solve unless or
until one has sought differing perspectives on how it might be solved.
(Think of how it was with a kernel32 error preventing a program from
running Easy enough to fix when you know the answer to it which fits
tyour symtpoms precisely.
But
if you don't know, you can't run this program on which your happiness
with your computer depends. .) And you may nopt be able to describe
the situation accurately enough yourself.

Hi Joseph,
My nightmare is to delete the exact same thing 6 damn times. And,
when the person sends something in response, they send it to like 3
lists. So that makes it 8 more messages, than necessary.

Hi,
For me, the worst nightmare is when someone cross-posts the same
message to multiple lists (I did ask people on the lists I moderate to
not cross-post, or if they have to do that, either use BCC or ask the
mods first).
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,

Here's the thing. If I send something to this list, and the BlindTech
list, but I only put one list into the to field at the time, there's
literally literally nothing the admins can do. If there are more than
one lists at the time, that's different.

Although I am still subscribed, I got very frustrated with the
moderation and sometimes the lack thereof. I very much dislike the
fact that there are more and more persons on Blindtech who are cross
posting all over the place.
It is not unusual to see the same message no fewer than five or six
times on various lists. And I hope that those cross posts do not show
up here.
This
prompts a question. Is there a utility which will somehow delete
cross posted messages? Setting up filters to do this would be a huge
undertaking.

Welcome to the list Cristsbal. Indeed it is active. We currently

LOL let's just say that I had a difference of opinion in the art of
list management with the owner/moderators of BlindTech.

Wow, I don't' check the lists for a couple of days and apparently
everything goes poopoo.
So is this list actually active?
All sorts of drama on BlindTech.

When you are in a message body, open quick settings with JAWS key v. Look
down the settings, and change what you want to change. When you find
something you want to change, such as block quotes, use the space bar to
move through the available settings. You may repeat the settings as often
as you want by continuing to press the space bar. Once you have changed
whatever settings you want to change for as many items as you wish, press
enter to save the changes and return you to the program window you were
previously in.

Your home computer may not be indicating bloc quotes because you are not
reading mail as html at home. On your friends computer, messages are being
read as html and you are in the virtual pc cursor.

Subject: [TechTalk] using Jaws 15 how to stop it from saying block quote

I have a second Jaws question. On the computer I'm using Jaws is saying
block quote, and the person who helped me set mine up on my own computers
set it to not say this. I thought it might be in graphics or attributes but
not having luck getting rid of it. I hope someone can help.
