Re: Signature in outlook

Gene
 

You never tab to move through a menu.  You are tabbing through one of the ribbons.  There is an actual menu and alt f, which opens the menu followed by the letter t, t is the shortcut in the menu that will either open options or move you to it,
 
It is important not to confuse menus with ribbons.  You tab through ribbons.  You use the up and down arrows to move through menus.

Hi George:
If you just tab through the file menu, you don't see Options, but
hitting Alt-F then T does bring up the options, so I just fixed my
signature. Thanks for the offer. I am using Outlook 2013, but I'm
going to upgrade soon.

Thanks again,

Re: Two outlook problems!

All ribbon programs have one menu which you open with alt f.  To familiarize yourself with a ribbon program, look at that menu, not just at the ribbons.  I don't use Outlook but what you are looking for is probably there.

I did get my problems fixed, but there is no Options under the File
ribbon. Don't know where that is. That would probably be where I can
set up my signature, the location of which I cannot find!

Re: mesh systems

David Mehler
 

Hello,

My thanks for all the feedback. I think my original question is
narrowed down to either Asus or Netgear as I'm either going for an
Asus ZenWiFi or a Netgear Orbi. Any experiences with either of these
systems specifically appreciated.
Thanks.
Dave.

Maybe if you’re in an apartment or a small house, mesh might be overkill,
but if you plan on having a lot of connected smart devices like doorbells or
HomeKit etc., it’s really worth getting a mesh wireless system.

Subject: [TechTalk] mesh systems

Hello,

I'm going to be getting a mesh system for my home and want to hear from
those who have them. I'm thinking either the TP-Link Deco M9 or the
Netgear Orbi Tri-Band, but I'm wanting to hear others recommendations and
experiences.

I'm am also interested in any of these systems phone apps and how
accessible they are if I would need to do setup on them either locally or
when I'm out needing to change something. For reference to this question
i'm using a windows10 laptop, a win10 surface pro tablet, and an android I
think it's 8 phone and an android 9 tablet, so that's what any apps would
have to run on.

If any of these (or other) mesh systems have native support for an OpenVPN
server so that I can vpn in from remote locations that is a major plus.

Thanks.

Jaws 2018 and firefox

David Mehler
 

Hello,

I've got a question. I'm running jaws 2018 and just installed firefox
72.0.1. When I try to open it I'm getting a message that tabbed
browsing is disabled due to incompatibilities between firefox and my
screen reader. Is this a known issue with these two software packages
and short of an upgrade which isn't going to happen for at least a
year, is there a fix, a downgrade is also not possible?

Thanks.
Dave.

Re: Signature in outlook

Nancy Shackelford
 

One of the 2 issues were that I had somehow pressed the toggle button
on "Work ofline" and couldn't remember where that setting was. The
other was that the alt-control-s was bringing up the System Access
screen reader, so I finally changed the shortcut in S A for that, then
did the outlook shortcut and set how often I receive new messages.

Thanks for the other way to get to options!

Re: Accessible Program for Remapping Keys on Laptop

Hi Rich,
 
Yes there is.  Below is a link to the program, tips and steps, but I kind of threw it all together so just read all the way through.

No problems here in my  keyboards that have the applications key.
Unfortunately my laptop and cordless keyboards do not have that particular

Hi Rose,
 
My wireless keyboard doesn't have the application key either. I use a sweet
little key mapping application called sharp keys to map another key I don't use
to the application key. It's very easy to use and free.

Navigation Tips For Sharp Keys
Setting the punctuation level to read all punctuation will make it much easier to find certain keys.  If you don't set the punctuation to read all you
will need to use the Jaws cursor to read all info for each key.
 
1. To use this utility you must press enter on the file:
"E:\Downloads\sharpkeys3\SharpKeys.exe." There is no installer and no entry
placed on All Programs menu or Desktop.
2. If it pops up, hit Alt + letter R when the "Open File Security Warning"
pops up. SharpKeys will then present it's user interface.
3. Tab to the Add button" and press enter.
4. You will be placed in a list box containing some 235 items representing
your keyboard's individual keys. Down arrow through this list until you
select the key you want to remap. Since I want to remap my Windows
applications key I will down arrow and select the following key: Special:
Application (E0_5D).
5. Tab about 3 times or until you reach the second list box. you can now
down arrow to select what you would like the new key to be. Since I want to
change the default Windows applications key to a second Windows key to the
right of the spacebar, I will select the following key: Special: Right
Windows (E0_5C)
6. Tab to Ok and hit enter.
7. Tab to "Write to Registry" and press enter.
8. You will receive a prompt informing you that you will need to either
reboot or log off for the changes to take effect.
9. I rebooted and now I have a second windows key to the right of the
spacebar.

For those of you using laptops you might want to take the following info for
a test drive. I've successfully remapped my windows applications key to be a
second windows key. Normally laptops and netbooks don't have a second
windows key on the right of the spacebar, and because it is so useful to me,
I thought I would find a way of remapping my netbook's keyboard. I tried
KeyTweak but it was presenting me with the actual scancodes rather than
names of keys on my keyboard. I found a neat little utility called SharpKey
which does all the work for you. Definitely helps with windows key + E for
explorer, windows key + r for run dialogue, windows key + F, windows key + T
for task bar and such. You will not be without a context menu key since
shift F10 does the very same thing as the windows applications key.
 
1. To use this utility you must press enter on the file:
"E:\Downloads\sharpkeys3\SharpKeys.exe." There is no installer and no entry

Re: Drop box.

George McCoy
 

I did something similar, Mike.  I set up a folder on my data drive with the same name as my user folder on drive c: and moved all but .cache, AppData, desktop and Microsoft Edge backups to it.

If you are a one drive user, you'll have to go into the one drive settings and tell the program to use the one drive folder on your data drive.

That setup works very well for me and I preserve the directory structure as it was under c:\users.

Good deal, Mike.

I think you're right to move as much data that is going to be written, deleted, rewritten etc. off of that SSD as you possibly can.  Although they're getting better all the time, the state of the art SSDs wear out much quicker when sectors are often rewritten.

Mike,
The Dropbox program is installed to the "C" drive by default, but within the
Dropbox preferences
you can select where you want the storage folders to be located.
I believe the default location for these folders is in the "User" directory,
but it may be possible to select another local drive or partition.
