Hey group, I've been following this thread with much interest. I use outlook 365 with Jaws 2019. Just to make sure I understand, it is not possible to get the message count info if a rule has been applied? I would like that number info, too, but I'm not willing to sacrifice my rule to get it. Thanks, Norma

James, I doubled checked in my Outlook tutorial and found this:


Settings for displaying number of mailbox messages 1. Get in mailbox you want to remove filters from and set numbers in.
2. Alt+v+v.
3. Tab three times to Filters.
4. Shift+Tab.
5. Right Arrow to Advanced Tab.
6. Tab to Remove.
7. Tab to OK.
8. Tab to OK again - VOILA, you're done.

Trouble is, I have been trying that; I tried again. I am unable to make it work.

Hi,

I may have fixed my biggest problem with Outlook. All devices would hang several times per day forcing me to restart the device. That solution is available if someone else has the same problem.

The MS Disability Desk is a lot of help most of the time. However, they have really messed up my PC a couple of times. I have started creating a backup image of my PC before I even call them. Also, I create an image if I am going to mess with anything that I have doubts about.

For example, I accidentally locked myself out of one of my laptops while messing with pass words and user profiles. It only took an hour to replace the entire drive from an image that I had made a few hours before I started messing around.

Cheers,

James B

Then, I must do a forced shutdown and restart Outlook. This happens 2 or 3 times a day.

I really want Office 365 to work. I am accustomed to some of its menus and keystrokes. it has a lot of very cool features. Its spell-checker and language checker are awesome. And, I am now liking Imap. but, still that learning curve.

Hi all,



I've been using Outlook with IMap for over a week now. I am grateful to all who talked me in to trying it again. 4 or 5 years ago, it didn't work for me. Now, I have a faster internet connection and faster computers and I am loving Outlook and imap.



I still have one more item that I hope can be resolved. I want to know how many emails are in my In-box and where I am in the list. For example, if I have 100 emails in my In-Box and I am on email number 50, I would like Jaws to say 50 out of 100.



I have the check box in folder properties checked that tells Outlook to number all mail. What else should I try?



I am using Jaws 19, Office365 and Windows10.



Thanks for any ideas,



James B

Yeah, that's what I was trying to remember. She needs to hit the space bar on clear all. I think that there might be a couple of OK buttons that will also need to be hit.

latest firefox issues

Adrien
 

Hi

I am using the latest version of windows 10 pro, latest firefox and latest nvda. When I am using firefox, the speech keeps hanging up, it all freezes, not sure what is causing it, it could be an add-on, how do I find the list of add-ons in the latest firefox please? I click on add-on manager, it just takes me to the web page for add-ons. Nvda seems to work ok with other applications.

Re: Chrome Question

James Bentley
 

The Windows key is to the left of the left alt key. In other words, the left alt key is the first key to the left of the space bar. Next should be the Windows key.

You should also be able to type control+escape to get to the search box in the start menu. Jaws may announce Cortana or Jaws might just say search. If you hearCortana, you can still type words there. This is one of the most powerful features of Windows when you need to try to find something or open a program. etc.

Hi Everyone:


Since using google chrome, I when to properties and put in a shortcut
key and I made it control alt C which works great but it only lasts a
couple of weeks and then deletes itself. When I tried to hit control,
alt C, nothing happened so I went back into properties and I had to do
everything all over again. I can't tell you how many times this has
happened since I started using Chrome. Even when I put the shortcut
key in, I have to go to where it says and maximize it again.
Everything that I have done deletes itself. So after I maximize it, I
hit apply and then OK. All of my other programs are fine and the
shortcut key stays and doesn't delete itself. I saw something in
properties where it says change Icon but I didn't do anything. Any
help on this would be greatly appreciated. I just have no idea why
this keeps happening and I even had someone who is sighted put it in
there way and it deleted itself like it does for me.

Insert+Page Down used to tell me the number, which I gave

Hi all,



I've been using Outlook with IMap for over a week now. I am grateful to all who talked me in to trying it again. 4 or 5 years ago, it didn't work for me. Now, I have a faster internet connection and faster computers and I am loving Outlook and imap.



I still have one more item that I hope can be resolved. I want to know how many emails are in my In-box and where I am in the list. For example, if I have 100 emails in my In-Box and I am on email number 50, I would like Jaws to say 50 out of 100.



I have the check box in folder properties checked that tells Outlook to number all mail. What else should I try?



I am using Jaws 19, Office365 and Windows10.



Thanks for any ideas,



James B


Re: Chrome Question

Mike, this is very handy.  I read some where on the net the other day that getting rid of items on the desktop makes a PC run better.  Especially photos and screen shots.  But the author also recommended that all possible shortcuts also be removed.

 

I’ll play with this a bit.  I think I might need a keyboard with two Windows keys instead of just one Windows key on the left.

Hi James,

 

First press, Windows key + T, to open the taskbar.  Now right arrow and count what is currently pinned there already.  If you want to unpin an item from the taskbar, highlight the icon, open the context menu with the applications key or Shift + F10, now up / down arrow to, Unpin from taskbar, and press enter.

 

If you want to pin an icon to the taskbar, lets say a shortcut icon on the desktop, highlight the desktop icon, open the context menu, arrow up / down to, Pin to taskbar, and press enter.

 

Here's how my taskbar is layed out.

Windows key + 1 = IE11.

Windows key + 2 = Notepad.

Windows key + 3 = Outlook Express.

Windows key + 4 = Word document1.

Windows key + 5 = Chrome.

Windows key + 6 = Jaws16.

Windows key + 7 = Jaws 18.

Windows key + 8 = Jaws 2018.

Windows key + 9 = Jaws 2019.

Windows key + 0 = Jaws 2020.

 

You can have up to 10 items pasted to the taskbar, but in order to paste a folder shortcut icon to the taskbar you have to modify the properties of the folder icon shortcut.

Opera the browser wonder

Jaffar Sidek
 

HI all.  I actually have replaced Chrome with Opera as my default browser and have no cause to regret my action.  It is a fast, efficient browser with a real effective ad blocker that gets rid of ads that litter articles you want to read.  While chrome promotes those ads, Opera blocks them, allowing you to get a smoother, uninterupted read of articles that interest you, which also incidentally makes copying and pasting of articles or snippets much easier.  Years ago, Opera was hardly accessible. Now, i think it beats the standard mainstream browsers any time. They have, indeed, come a very long way.  Cheers!

I have no idea if that will solve the problem.  the information for short cut commands is stored in the registry and it sounds as though something may be causing the registry to lose its information.  But what that may be, I don't know.

Hi,

I may have fixed my biggest problem with Outlook.  All devices would hang several times per day forcing me to restart the device.  That solution is available if someone else has the same problem.

The MS Disability Desk is a lot of help most of the time.  However, they have really messed up my PC a couple of times.  I have started creating a backup image of my PC before I even call them.  Also, I create an image if I am going to mess with anything that I have doubts about.

For example, I accidentally locked myself out of one of my laptops while messing with pass words and user profiles.  It only took an hour to replace the entire drive from an image that I had made a few hours before I started messing around.

Cheers,

James B

I might be stuck with Office 365.  I'll reluctantly get over the numbering of emails if I must.  Its just a massive learning curve.  Plus, I have an unidentified problem.

All 3 of my devices will hang.  That is Outlook hangs.
Then, I must do a forced shutdown and restart Outlook.  This happens 2 or 3 times a day.

disability tech support reinstalled my server settings on two machines with no success.  They are now suggesting a repair on Outlook.

I have put that on hold for a day or so.  I am Googling around to learn more.  There are plenty of people who have the same problem And, with many solutions that I want to investigate before I get stuck having to install an image backup because MS or I destroyed my current drive.

I really want Office 365 to work.  I am accustomed to some of its menus and keystrokes.  it has a lot of very cool features.  Its spell-checker and language checker are awesome.  And, I am now liking Imap.  but, still that learning curve.

Hi,

I may have fixed my biggest problem with Outlook.  All devices would hang several times per day forcing me to restart the device.  That solution is available if someone else has the same problem.

The MS Disability Desk is a lot of help most of the time.  However, they have really messed up my PC a couple of times.  I have started creating a backup image of my PC before I even call them.  Also, I create an image if I am going to mess with anything that I have doubts about.

For example, I accidentally locked myself out of one of my laptops while messing with pass words and user profiles.  It only took an hour to replace the entire drive from an image that I had made a few hours before I started messing around.

Cheers,

James B

James, if Microsoft hadn't fixed my Outlook (all but filters), I would have called a local computer guy, but am thankful not to have had to spend that money. Sometimes though, a knowledgeable sightie can work wonders in a little bit of time. My husband is good, but has no clue about Outlook or any other email client.

I might be stuck with Office 365.  I'll reluctantly get over the numbering of emails if I must.  Its just a massive learning curve.  Plus, I have an unidentified problem.

All 3 of my devices will hang.  That is Outlook hangs.
Then, I must do a forced shutdown and restart Outlook.  This happens 2 or 3 times a day.

disability tech support reinstalled my server settings on two machines with no success.  They are now suggesting a repair on Outlook.

I have put that on hold for a day or so.  I am Googling around to learn more.  There are plenty of people who have the same problem And, with many solutions that I want to investigate before I get stuck having to install an image backup because MS or I destroyed my current drive.

I really want Office 365 to work.  I am accustomed to some of its menus and keystrokes.  it has a lot of very cool features.  Its spell-checker and language checker are awesome.  And, I am now liking Imap.  but, still that learning curve.

Cheers,

Hi all,

 

I've been using Outlook with IMap for over a week now.  I am grateful to all who talked me in to trying it again.  4 or 5 years ago, it didn't work for me.  Now, I have a faster internet connection and faster computers and I am loving Outlook and imap.

 

I still have one more item that I hope can be resolved.  I want to know how many emails are in my In-box and where I am in the list.  For example, if I have 100 emails in my In-Box and I am on email number 50, I would like Jaws to say 50 out of 100.

 

I have the check box in folder properties checked that tells Outlook to number all mail.  What else should I try?

 

I am using Jaws 19, Office365 and Windows10.

 

Thanks for any ideas,

 

James B

Settings for displaying number of mailbox messages 1. Get in mailbox you want to remove filters from and set numbers in.
2. Alt+v+v.
3. Tab three times to Filters.
4. Shift+Tab.
5. Right Arrow to Advanced Tab.
6. Tab to Remove.
7. Tab to OK.
8. Tab to OK again - VOILA, you're done.

Trouble is, I have been trying that; I tried again. I am unable to make it work.

Re: Chrome Question

Mike B.
 


Hi James,
 
First press, Windows key + T, to open the taskbar.  Now right arrow and count what is currently pinned there already.  If you want to unpin an item from the taskbar, highlight the icon, open the context menu with the applications key or Shift + F10, now up / down arrow to, Unpin from taskbar, and press enter.
 
If you want to pin an icon to the taskbar, lets say a shortcut icon on the desktop, highlight the desktop icon, open the context menu, arrow up / down to, Pin to taskbar, and press enter.
 
Here's how my taskbar is layed out.
Windows key + 1 = IE11.
Windows key + 2 = Notepad.
Windows key + 3 = Outlook Express.
Windows key + 4 = Word document1.
Windows key + 5 = Chrome.
Windows key + 6 = Jaws16.
Windows key + 7 = Jaws 18.
Windows key + 8 = Jaws 2018.
Windows key + 9 = Jaws 2019.
Windows key + 0 = Jaws 2020.
 
You can have up to 10 items pasted to the taskbar, but in order to paste a folder shortcut icon to the taskbar you have to modify the properties of the folder icon shortcut.

Hi Shelly,

Lets see if this works.

1.  Type the word chrome in to your Windows search box.
2.  Hit your application key or, type shift+F10.
3.  Use the up and down arrow keys to find, Open file location and hit enter.
  4.  Use your up and down arrow keys to find Google chrome
6.  Hit your application key or, type shift+F10.
7.  Up arrow to properties and hit enter.
8.  Tab to the place where it says hot key none.
9.  Type the hotkey that you want.
Note, you might get stuck using something different than control+alt+C because you have already tried that before.
If so, maybe Control+shift +C will be OK for you.
10.  tab to apply and hit the space bar.
Note, .  if you get declined, just hit the space bar again.
11.  Shift+tab to the OK button and hit the space bar.

Now, you should be all set.

         Hi Everyone:


Since using google chrome, I when to properties and put in a shortcut
key and I made it control alt C which works great but it only lasts a
couple of weeks and then deletes itself.  When I tried to hit control,
alt C, nothing happened so I went back into properties and I had to do
everything all over again.  I can't tell you how many times this has
happened since I started using Chrome.  Even when I put the shortcut key
in, I have to go to where it says and maximize it again.  Everything
that I have done deletes itself.  So after I maximize it, I hit apply
and then OK. All of my other programs are fine and the shortcut key
stays and doesn't delete itself.  I saw something in properties where it
says change Icon but I didn't do anything.  Any help on this would be
greatly appreciated.  I just have no idea why this keeps happening and I
even had someone who is sighted put it in there way and it deleted
itself like it does for me.

that command on another list. However, if the filters are on, that command will provide no number information. I would love to know how to remove the filter. But, Insert+8 will sai a message and one out of seven or 22 out of 35, whatever is there.

As far as being announced 50 out of 100 not at all sure of how one would do that with JAWS. Hearing how many emails within whatever given folder, just try using the keystroke (while focus is within this folder)

Hi all,

 

I've been using Outlook with IMap for over a week now.  I am grateful to all who talked me in to trying it again.  4 or 5 years ago, it didn't work for me.  Now, I have a faster internet connection and faster computers and I am loving Outlook and imap.

 

I still have one more item that I hope can be resolved.  I want to know how many emails are in my In-box and where I am in the list.  For example, if I have 100 emails in my In-Box and I am on email number 50, I would like Jaws to say 50 out of 100.

 

I have the check box in folder properties checked that tells Outlook to number all mail.  What else should I try?

 

I am using Jaws 19, Office365 and Windows10.

 

Thanks for any ideas,

 

James B

Right. When I get to Advanced, I just get Field and Edit and OK. I can't get to Remove.

It worked for me too on two out of three PC's. I must have a setting out of whack on the third.

Carolyn, are you still not getting anything when you type insert+page down? I hear the number of total emails in the folder plus the number of unread emails. And, I hear zoom 10%

Cheers,It was your notes that helped me make the necessary changes. My menus in Outlook 2016 are slightly different but I stumbled through it.

James, I doubled checked in my Outlook tutorial and found this:


Settings for displaying number of mailbox messages 1. Get in mailbox you want to remove filters from and set numbers in.
2. Alt+v+v.
3. Tab three times to Filters.
4. Shift+Tab.
5. Right Arrow to Advanced Tab.
6. Tab to Remove.
7. Tab to OK.
8. Tab to OK again - VOILA, you're done.

Trouble is, I have been trying that; I tried again. I am unable to make it work.

That sounds like a good idea. I haven’t used the disability service but the reports I’ve seen are uneven as to quality and my impression is that it ranges widely.

Hi,

I may have fixed my biggest problem with Outlook. All devices would hang several times per day forcing me to restart the device. That solution is available if someone else has the same problem.

The MS Disability Desk is a lot of help most of the time. However, they have really messed up my PC a couple of times. I have started creating a backup image of my PC before I even call them. Also, I create an image if I am going to mess with anything that I have doubts about.

For example, I accidentally locked myself out of one of my laptops while messing with pass words and user profiles. It only took an hour to replace the entire drive from an image that I had made a few hours before I started messing around.

Cheers,

James B

James, if Microsoft hadn't fixed my Outlook (all but filters), I would have called a local computer guy, but am thankful not to have had to spend that money. Sometimes though, a knowledgeable sightie can work wonders in a little bit of time. My husband is good, but has no clue about Outlook or any other email client.

I might be stuck with Office 365. I'll reluctantly get over the numbering of emails if I must. Its just a massive learning curve. Plus, I have an unidentified problem.

All 3 of my devices will hang. That is Outlook hangs.
Then, I must do a forced shutdown and restart Outlook. This happens 2 or 3 times a day.

disability tech support reinstalled my server settings on two machines with no success. They are now suggesting a repair on Outlook.

I have put that on hold for a day or so. I am Googling around to learn more. There are plenty of people who have the same problem And, with many solutions that I want to investigate before I get stuck having to install an image backup because MS or I destroyed my current drive.

I really want Office 365 to work. I am accustomed to some of its menus and keystrokes. it has a lot of very cool features. Its spell-checker and language checker are awesome. And, I am now liking Imap. but, still that learning curve.

Cheers,

James B

I'm not getting the same results as you. Maybe we are using different versions of Outlook or our settings are different.

Let me know if you discover how to make changes to the filters.

Hi,
Is there a BT sync key for the old blind cool tech archives?
I thought there was, but I’m not sure.


Programs that monitor disk health

Hello listers, I'd like some suggestions for programs that can be used to monitor the health of a hard drive. I'd like to use a program that can be used with both an ssd and mechanical drive.

Thanks in advance.
