Hello Mary Jane! I am so glad that you were able to get back on this list. This is my favorite email list by far! Zoom is a conferencing platform. It is sort of like Skype, but instead of calling someone, someone has to host the meeting on zoom. The person who decides to host a meeting, since out a link for everyone to join the meeting. If you are asked to join a meeting on zoom, such as in freedom scientific meeting, I and my wife are doing a church class on zoom, you are given a link that you can just enter on that takes you right to zoom, and you join the meeting. many people can be on a zoom meeting at one time which makes it very handy. There is a desktop version, which is very accessible with screen readers, and you can also put it on your phone iPhone or Android. Let us know what questions you have. Zoom is a great way in this coronavirus for people to get together and it can be in video or just audio.

When you are in a meeting, tabbing around will show you a leave meeting button. Use the space bar on buttons. As someone else said, you can use alt f4 but I’m discussing this other way because you can see a lot of things by tabbing around and even if you don’t know shortcuts, you can do a lot. Also, you can see one or two more things by going into full screen. You will see an item regarding full screen as you tab. Unlike many programs, you see more items in full screen and It doesn’t appear that you lose access to anything.

Hi,
Is there a key stroke to leave a session when using zoom on the desktop?
During all of my times using zoom, it’s always on the iPhone, so I have yet to try it on the computer using windows 10.
Thank you.

You will need to go to the following web address at
https://web.whatsapp.com/
Before you can use the web version you must have it setup on your mobile
phone and already have a account setup. After you have signed into the
app on your phone you will need to go to more
options...settings....whats app web and double tap. This will also need
to be done on the computer you are using.then you will have to scan in a
Qr code. If the code needs to be refreshed while on the graphic use the
NVDA key + enter key to do this. from the monitor for it to sign you in.
The computer must be on the same web address as above.

when you go to scan in the QR code The QR code is on the top right

Re: outlook express 6

Mike B.
 


Yes, you make 2 identities and then each will be separate of the other.  Here's how:
Creating an identity in Outlook Express
While in Outlook Express, do the following:
 
1. Press Alt f, for the file menu, then D, for identities.
2. The first selection will be spoken, add new identity..., press enter.
3. When this dialogue opens, you will be in an edit field, where you can type your name.
The name you type here will be the one shown in the list of identities when Outlook Express opens each time.
4. Tab once, and you will be in a password edit field, which is optional.
If you enter a password for the identity, you will have to enter this password each time you wish to access the identity.
If you enter a password, tab once, and you will need to confirm the password by typing it again.
5. Now, tab to the okay button, and press the spacebar.
6. You will get a message telling you that the identity has been added, and asking if you want to switch to that identity,
so you will want to spacebar the yes button, and the internet connection wizard will open.
7. When the wizard opens, you will be in an edit field for your display name.
This is the name that will appear in the, from, field on your outgoing e-mail messages.
Type your name, and tab to the next button, and press the spacebar.
8. In this dialogue, you will type your e-mail address,
and then tab to the next, button, and press the spacebar.
9. In this dialogue, you will be asked for your incoming and outgoing mail servers.
Example:
incoming mail server: pop.att.yahoo.com
outgoing mail server: smtp.att.yahoo.com
You should have this imformation from your Internet service provider.
Enter the imformation, and tab to the next button, and press the spacebar.
10. In this dialogue you will be asked for your account name, and password, provided by your internet service provider.
Enter the imformation, and tab to the next button, and press the spacebar.
11. Here you will get a message telling you that you have entered the necessary imformation, and to click the finish button to save the changes, so press the spacebar.
Now, depending on your internet service provider, and their requirements,
you may need to do a little more to begin recieving e-mail.
12. Press alt T for the tools menu, and then A, for accounts.
13. when this dialogue opens, you will see the account you just created.
So tab to the properties button, and press the spacebar.
14. When this dialogue opens, you will be in an edit field where you can give your server an optional name for your convenience, type aname here if you wish, and then tab once.
15. This is also an edit field containing the display name you chose in the earlier step.
Tab once
16. Here is an optional edit field for an organization name if you wish.
Tab once
17. This edit field contains your e-mail address, so tab once.
18. This field is the return address, and should contain the address to which you want your mail returned.
Typically, this should be the same as the address above. tab once.
19. This checkbox should be checked, then tab once.
20. Now, tab to the apply button, and spacebar it.
21. Now, shift tab once, to place you on the general tab, and then right arrow to the servers tab.
In this dialogue, you will use the tab key to move from one field to the next.
22. The first field simply states what type of incoming mail server you have, such as pop3.
The next field will contain the pop3 server name
The next field will contain the smtp server name.
The next field will contain your account name, which is typically your e-mail address for this particular account.
The next field will contain your account password.
The next item is a checkbox to remember your password, typically, this is checked.
The next item is a checkbox for logging on useing secure password authentication, and is typically not checked.
The next item is a checkbox for, my server requires secure authentication,
and depending on your internet service provider, may need to be checked.
If so, check it with the spacebar, then tab once.
23. Now you should be on the settings button, so press the spacebar, to open the next dialogue.
24. in this dialogue, you will need to enter the settings provided by your internet service provider,
 and then tab to the okay button, and press the spacebar.
25. Now, tab to the apply button, and press the spacebar.
26. depending on your internet service provider's requirements, you may need to do the following:
26a.  shift tab once, and then right arrow to the advanced tab.
26b. In this dialogue, you will need to set the port numbers given by your internet service provider,
and make sure that the checkboxes for, this server requires a secure connection, are checked
if stated by your internet service provider.
26c. Tab to the okay button, and press the spacebar.
You should land on the properties button again, so tab to the close button, and press the spacebar.
You are done.

Re: outlook express 6

heather albright
 

Ah yes, thank you for the explanation. I have one account titled home and one titled work. But, I remember in the past, you could just tab threw accounts, contacts, inbox, the message title and you hit inter to read the message. So you first selected the account you wanted to work with say personal,  you can see the inbox for that account and than you go down the same colum to sent items, drafts, deleted items.  It would show them for each account, not combining them. I think that is what it is doing. I have my first account as my default account and I have the second as my work account. But their all in the same place together. I not sure I am explaining this very well! Thanks Heather

Re: Zoom Keystrokes

Hi all,

I don't have automatic quoting in my email client of choice. I have to make a conscious decision to quote or not quote. I happen to think this is a good idea. I know, for example, that when using my other account and Outlook, I just answer sometimes and I leave in scads of quoted material that isn't relevant.
