Re: Alarms

Hi Maria,

there are a couple of ways to dismiss an alarm notification sent by the windows 10 alarm and clock app:

1. Press windows key + A to open the action center. This immediately silences the alarm, and you can then just press ESC to close the action center.

2. Press windows key + V to move to the toast notification (also known as a notification banner), and press delete to dismiss the notification - you don't have to use the dismiss button.

You can set alarms with cortana.  The problem I find is how to dismiss them when they come on.  JAWS won't read the dismiss button.  Perhaps narrator will, but I haven't explored that yet.

Hi All,


Does anyone know of a program I can install on my Windows computer that will allow me to set different alarms throughout the day?  Thanks in advance!

Cataracts are among the leading causes of vision loss worldwide; they are usually treatable. Has an ophthalmologist diagnosed you or a loved one with cataracts? Do you need cataract surgery but can’t afford the cost? If you’re a SC resident and U.S. citizen not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or other insurance; and have cataracts in both eyes, we at the SC Commission for the Blind may be able to help.
