Hello,
My guess is that this was a phishing email. If it were truly them you would’ve gotten it right after you had signed up. I would recommend changing your password immediately to secure your account.

How to tell amount to send in Paypal

Kay Malmquist
 

Hi all,
When sending an amount in Paypal if you don't want to use friends and family, how do you figure the amount you should pay so that the other person gets what they need?  For example, $100 or $200.  How much more would you have to pay to get that even amount to a person?  Thanks much in advance.

These steps can be used in any standard save as dialog.  That’s what the Notepad save as dialog is.  If they work in Windows 10 in Notepad, they will work in general.

You don’t have to have typed anything to save.  I don’t know what you see in Windows 10, but as you tab around the save as dialog, you will see in Windows 7 and probably in the Windows 10 save as dialog, a field that says address and then presents the path such as c:\and whatever comes next.  . 
That will tell you where the file is saved.  If you need more information, I’ll experiment and see if you can do more with the tool bar.  Close save as dialog with alt f4.

sighted child can't always see videos on my PC's screen can i fix this with no vision

joanne
 

OK didn't know how to put this in a subject line, and perhaps we who are totally blind may not be able to do anything that absolutely makes sure YouTube or other videos are showing on the screen. But I'm gonna just put this out there because there may be a trick or something someone can share. I play videos for my grandchildren, and of course the youngest aren't quite able to maneuver a mouse or fix the screen for better viewing. Several times an older child comes in and says the toddler can't see what I thought for sure was being seen. The monitor is on and all, but he told me that the video is further down and I assumed that if you open a video you're right there on it visually speaking. I do know I get it right most of the time, but of course it's frustrating for the kid if they can't fix it or tell me to arrow down or page down or something. Does putting everything on full screen guarantee it's seen? Or is it because I'm using Jaws and I do know Jaws doesn't always follow the PC and sighted people often take it out if they're using the computer. I just wondered ... or does using NVDA keep the cursor from jumping around and does having NVDA open keep the video where it's supposed to be? If full screen is the answer, do I need to go to the top of the page after hitting full screen? It's just frustrating because I want to be able to know this little one is actually seeing the pictures and animation he likes so much.

Re: vizio smart tvs?

juan gonzalez
 

I got a Sony tv with android built in which works great. It sounds like that tv you are looking at has android built in as well. They do have the android tv separate if you want to get a non smart TV but there are limitations to this. I would go with built in anytime. I can do most things with the google assistant that is also built in. you will need sighted assistance to get talk back up and running though.

Hope this helps and happy shopping.

Or are fire 4k tvs such as insignia better for blind people to buy? In other words what is the best screen reader since I am looking into upgrading my tv to a 4k smart tv?

Outlook contacts issue/question

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
I was looking at stuff on my old laptop today and noticed that I have a few
Outlook contacts on my old computer that aren't in my contacts on this laptop.
So I'm wondering, is there any way to get specific contacts from my contacts on
my old computer to my list on this computer? I know how to do a Outlook backup
and import it (though I've never done it from one computer to another), but most
of the contacts are the same on both computers so I don't really want to do that
because then I'd have duplicates and I don't want that. I don't even know why
these particular contacts don't show up in my contacts on this computer, a
backup was imported, so I don't know if I accidentally deleted them or what
happened. My old computer is running Outlook 2013, Windows 7 and the latest
vertion of Jaws and this computer is running the latest versions of Office 365,
Jaws and Windows 10. Really hope there's a way to do this as I'd really like to
have these missing contacts on this computer as I rarely use my old one. Look
forward to any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks
Madison
