I did some checking.  The information was incomplete.  You are supposed to send a message to the address, as you did, but with the word subscribe in the subject line.  To unsubscribe, use unsubscribe.
 
the list serve thought you were a robot because you used an incorrect configuration.

Thanks Ann.  And I would suggest:  I am going to list mine on CraigsList.  I've been relatively successful with CL.  Last month I sold about 1500 45s on there and got a few bucks I wouldn't have otherwise.

Re: Olympus digital recorders?

Hello List, Has anyone here been able to get an accessible manual or guide
on the DM-720?

I just received my unit and there were no instructions in there as far as I
could tell.

Any pointers would be very gratefully received!

Good Evening,

One can set the time and date on the DM-720. I was unable to set either AM
or PM.

This is a great voice recorder but if the right menu choices are made, it
can be one of the finest sound recorders. It can record the lowest organ
tones and the high frequencies associated with the various gadgets used by
percussionists.

Re: Two outlook problems!

Nancy Shackelford
 

I just ordered a book from NBP (National Braille Press), and when I
get it, I think it'll help all of us with this ribbon stuff. When I
read about the ribbons, I'll definitely post what I learn.

Once again, thanks to Gene, George, David, Carolyn, and all who have
replied to this thread!

Re: Two outlook problems!

I just tried opening the ribbons and making shure I was on the home ribbon with alt h.  This is using Word Starter 10.  If I left arrow once, I get to a menu button.  If I down arrow, I'm not in that menu.  I'm in something that looks like that menu, without as many items, but it isn't the actual menu.  But if I use alt h, then left arrow once and press space bar on the menu button, I am in the actual menu. 
 
I'm not sure just how the Word interface works, you can be in the menu and tab, and no longer be in the menu.  Maybe you are in backstage view, I'm not sure.  But the program does follow the rule that if you use alt f, you will be in the menu provided in ribbon programs and that if you press the menu button, as described above, you will be in the menu.  You never tab to move through a menu.  If you want to use whatever Word makes available if you tab, then of course, you may, but you won't be in the menu.
 
I don't know how many people are confused by the Word interface in this respect.  In general, if you tab in a menu, nothing will happen.  In more recent versions of Word, if you tab, you will be taken out of the menu.  I didn't know this until today since I don't tab in menus.  But now I'll be on the lookout for this as a possible source of confusion when someone presents a problem where it may apply.

Re: bookshare question.

Penny Golden
 

That's it. Thanks so very much.   I thank you ever so much.

In that way, I can save all my bookshare things in essentially the same way; I like one file per book; and daisies, as you know, are folders, which is not near as satisfying for me.

Thanks so very much.

It is XML and I will not forget it anymore. Thanks. Penny

Re: Two outlook problems!

Gene
 

That's alright.  I didn't think you were just being argumentative. 
 
I'm not sure why you see what you see, evidently in your version of Word, things aren't organized in that way.  But what I'm telling you now, regardless of how things are organized, should work in any ribbon program. 
 
Left arrowing moves you from ribbon to ribbon and a few other things going from right to left.  Right arrow moves you through those same things moving from left to right.  Don't down arrow when you get to the ribbon you want to work with and then use the left and right arrow keys to move through that ribbon.  You may not see everything.  When on a ribbon, tab through it and you will see everything in that ribbon but you will have to open some things to see everything in them, such as a dialog or a menu dropping down from the ribbon when you open them. 
Of course, you can use alt plus letter to immediately move to a specific ribbon such as alt h for home.  If you do that, again, tab through the ribbon, don't down arrow and move with the left and right arrow keys.
 
I won't go into everything here, to avoid giving different ways to do the same thing.  But try the following to get to the menu:
Method one:
Press alt then f.  You should be in the menu.  Up or down arrow and you should get to options.
Method two:
Press alt, then either left or right arrow through everything.  You should move from ribbon to ribbon and you should get to a menu button.  Press the space bar on the menu button.  You should be in and moving through the same menu as you got to with method one.
 
If what I describe doesn't work  it will require more discussion.  others might know why, perhaps because back stage view is on.  But I think it will work regardless.

reel tapes.

Penny Golden
 

Perhaps this will be permitted once.  I have shelves and shelves of reels.  Some of them are really nice performances of classical stuff.

In any event, I just found a performance from 1980 of Sviatislav Richter conducting the Bach St. John Passion.

Would someone want these old reels, or shall I just consign them to the trash.

I have reel equipment but probably won't play anything unless I want to digitize it. And I won't do that for these old classical reels that someone recorded and then needed to pass them on.

So any interest in reels, or shall I just trash them.
