Re: Windows XP, Outlook Express and Connectivity Issues

Carolyn Arnold
 

I have a friend like that too, and she has spent enough money with Computer Nerds, as she says the business actually is called, to have bought another computer and some teaching instructions. However, she is one of these high anxiety people, and, well, we're just not all the same.

I am wondering, if IE gets nonfunctional, if she'll be able to send and receive emails any longer?

Hi Ann,

I suggested all of these things to my friend but I guess he's just set in his ways. He's not all that poor either: just stubborn <g>!

Re: replace laptop with an iPad?

Carolyn Arnold
 

I can see your point, David. At one time, I very much wanted to get an Android phone and bought a tablet at a reasonable price. This tablet had a keyboard with good-sized keys on it, but it seemed too clumsy. I never got as good typing on it as I am on my iPhone touch screen, won't buy keyboard for iPhone, because of my tablet experience. I could just about do more with the touch screen, and certainly didn't know what I was doing. I finally sold it, found out about the Hadley videos, and bought an iPhone. I'd had one before, but, with it, I didn't half know what to do with the thing.

Still, I think that the time will eventually come, that for most people, tablets will be the way to go, sort of like smart phones now. I remember saying in the late 90's that I thought eventually, people would just have cell phones that they could carry with them all the time. Sure enough, we're just about there, not quite, but getting close.

Oh, I wonder, with a keyboard for iPhone, can you put numbers in, when you call somewhere, and they ask for, say a prescription number, which changes frequently?> I keep getting told, before I get a number in that I haven't given the right number - but, then, if they'd let me get it all in, it would be right. I realize that is an automation issue, just trying to work on solution.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] replace laptop with an iPad?

I have a different view on this topic. For some sighted users an iPad may, under certain conditions, be a good replacement for a Windows laptop, particularly if you use it with a keyboard. You can use Office as well as the iWork suite, browse the Web, check your email and have a system that's portable, very fast and extremely secure. However, while VoiceOver is great using it on a touch screen its performance with a keyboard is just barely adequate compared to using a Windows screen reader, particularly JAWS. Its Web navigation capabilities using a keyboard are very poor, speech sometimes reads incorrectly while navigating a document I'm trying to edit and there just aren't enough keyboard commands to provide certain types of information that I can easily access with JAWS. If an iPad with a keyboard and VoiceOver offered me the same level of accessibility as I am used to with JAWS or NVDA I'd definitely consider using an iPad as a secondary computer. As an example, there are so many options to configure how JAWS works with Microsoft Word which just are not going to be available with VoiceOver on an iPad. However, this is just not available at this time. In addition, I also use Leasey, a third party tool that runs alongside of JAWS to provide even more productivity and VoiceOver just doesn't offer such an option. If you want to invest in an iPad feel free to do so. I think it's a great tablet with very nice touch screen accessibility and adequate accessibility if you want to type a quick email. However, don't throw away that laptop because, if you're even somewhat accustomed to using Windows, I think you will find the iPad to be frustrating and very disappointing.

Re: Windows XP, Outlook Express and Connectivity Issues

Hi Group,

Along these lines of legacy VS modern equipment and Operating systems: I wonder if I could get a Windows 98 system somewhere.  I really like Windows 10 and I have no problems with it. But I do have a few games: Any Night Football and World Series Baseball that are DOS only and they have never been ported to Windows in any way.  I really miss them.

The World Series baseball game even allowed you to pick players and statistics on your own and insert them into two competing teams. Once, back in the day, I created two teams: The Buffalo Ham operators (as in amateur radio) and the Buffalo Blinks (as in blind people.)  For laughs and giggles, I gave the sighted amateur radio operators batting averages in the low 200's and pitching statistics in the above 5 ERA (not very good)areas.  In contrast, I gave the Blinks high averages around 300 or better and low pitching statistics: ERA of under 3.0.  When I played the world series simulation, the Blinks beat the Hams in four straight by astronomic scores. I actually had a play-by-play text output of that series on an old DOS system, but failed to save it. I wish I had it for laughs and  giggles to pass on for others to enjoy.

Re: Setting the Display on Windows 10 computer

Skye
 

It depends on the monitor or how you set up/position the monitor.  If you have your view set up for horizontal viewing where it is wider than tall, then you want landscape setting.  But if your monitor is set for vertical viewing where it is taller than wide, then portrait is the better setting.  There could be a number of reasons why someone would be in portrait mode.

Re: replace laptop with an iPad?

Gene
 

I'm not discussing this from personal experience but I was curious.  I'd seen it stated years ago that the IPad is far more a consumption device, for streaming for example, than for serious demanding work.  But since this was years ago, I wanted to see if things had changed.
 
I found this article, which takes the production side, but almost all of the eight or ten comments following were strongly opposed to this article's premise and said that the IPad is not suitable for serious production.  I'm not taking a side but those considering the question may find the page interesting along with whatever else they may want to consider.

These days in 2020, with iPad OS, is it possible to replace your laptop with an iPad and use an iPad as your main computing device? Or is a windows laptop still necessary? With mouse support in the latest iPad OS I would think replacing a laptop with an iPad is becoming easier all the time. So have any of you got rid of desktops and laptops running windows and just use your iPhone or iPad as your main computing device?

Re: replace laptop with an iPad?

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

I have a different view on this topic. For some sighted users an iPad may, under certain conditions, be a good replacement for a Windows laptop, particularly if you use it with a keyboard. You can use Office as well as the iWork suite, browse the Web, check your email and have a system that's portable, very fast and extremely secure. However, while VoiceOver is great using it on a touch screen its performance with a keyboard is just barely adequate compared to using a Windows screen reader, particularly JAWS. Its Web navigation capabilities using a keyboard are very poor, speech sometimes reads incorrectly while navigating a document I'm trying to edit and there just aren't enough keyboard commands to provide certain types of information that I can easily access with JAWS. If an iPad with a keyboard and VoiceOver offered me the same level of accessibility as I am used to with JAWS or NVDA I'd definitely consider using an iPad as a secondary computer. As an example, there are so many options to configure how JAWS works with Microsoft Word which just are not going to be available with VoiceOver on an iPad. However, this is just not available at this time. In addition, I also use Leasey, a third party tool that runs alongside of JAWS to provide even more productivity and VoiceOver just doesn't offer such an option. If you want to invest in an iPad feel free to do so. I think it's a great tablet with very nice touch screen accessibility and adequate accessibility if you want to type a quick email. However, don't throw away that laptop because, if you're even somewhat accustomed to using Windows, I think you will find the iPad to be frustrating and very disappointing.

Hi Josh:

I don’t own an iPad Pro, but I plan to get one soon and use it as my laptop replacement. I currently own an iPad mini 2 and I have used an iPad Pro before. In my opinion, there is no reason why the iPad cannot replace the traditional laptop. With the right apps, the iPad can perform all common computer tasks and most heavy duty tasks. Even the most advanced ones.

If you would like to know more, look up a website called the tech juggernaut. On that website, there is information about using the iPad as an alternative to the traditional laptop. Plus, there are many YouTube videos about this.

Re: Windows XP, Outlook Express and Connectivity Issues

Gene
 

I don't know what the problem is.  If the program is saying it can't find the connection when it should, it makes me wonder if something has gotten corrupted in the program.  I have no idea if there is any way to reinstall the program any longer. 
 
Maybe trying a system restore to a time before the problem might help but aside from that, the thing to do might be to try the menu version of Windows Live Mail.  it is very similar to Outlook Express and your friend would have almost nothing new to learn.  The one thing he would probably need to learn is how to start a new message using contacts.  Aside from that, the program is almost identical except that it doesn't have identities, as newer e-mail programs generally don't.

Hi Group,

  A friend of mine is set in his ways. He wants to keep using Windows XP
and Outlook Express as his primary mail client.  When he tries to get
mail, he gets an odd message to the effect that Outlook Express could
not find the broad band connection.  He is connected to Broad Band via
Spectrum and can use Internet Explorer and Firefox with no problems.

I walked him through the Outlook Express connectivity wizard and while
during the wizard, Windows indicated that the connection had been found,
when he tries to receive mail, he gets this message.

It's been a while since I used XP, so I'm a bit rusty to say the least. 
What could be causing this and how can it be resolved. Thanks in advance
for any help.

Re: Setting the Display on Windows 10 computer

These days, now that the old crt monitors are dust, computer monitors are landscape.
The same goes for all the flat screen tvs.
They are called landscape because they are wider than theyare tall.

Hi Nancy,

Here's an easy way:
1. While on your desktop make sure nothing is selected and open the context menu with the applications key or Shift + F10.
2. Up arrow a couple of times to, Display settings, and press enter.
3. Now just tab to find your settings.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

I cannot find these settings anywhere in the control pannel; My display is supposed to stay on Landscape, but I'm thinking it may have gone sideways again--done it before! Somebody please give me a clue to where to find the display settings.

Thanks,

Hi Bob,
 
You know, I guess it could be a personal preference when you can't see it anyways.  But, it can depend on what type of monitor you use.  If your monitor is a regular screen I would assume the portrait option would be what you want, and on the other hand if you have a wide screen monitor you would want the landscape option / view.
