Re: antivirus program suites

 

One doesn't generally "do" anything with either Windows Defender (Win7) & Microsoft Security Essentials (Win7)  or Windows Defender (Win8 and later).

You might occasionally want to check if anything's been detected, but even if it has you should be notified and it should be quarantined without any user action.  These programs exemplify "set it and forget it," which is the goal of pretty much any security software worth having.  Windows Defender (all versions) and Microsoft Security Essentials (Win7 and earlier) all update themselves and their respective definition files on a regular basis.

Provided you don't have a third-party security suite all you need to do is check that they are turned on.  In the case of Microsoft Security Essentials, it isn't built in and you'd have to download it from Microsoft's site, here.

Re: Opening Outlook attachments

Van Lant, Robin
 

Another trick you might try that I have used in Outlook 2010 is to go to the File menu and select Save all attachments.  I’ve done this when attachments are embedded and it seems to work. You might get an extra image file or something you did not want, but at least it helps you find the good stuff, too.

Hi Ted!  You are correct.  It is very hard to find when attachments are embedded in an email.  I normally have to use the JAWS or touch cursor to find them.  If you encounter an email like this, the Insert plus A key stroke will not work.

I’ll try to remember that.  Also, and I don’t  understand all I know about this, there are two ways of handling attachments.  One has them in plain sight, while the other virtually embeds them, and you have to really treasure hunt for them.

Re: how to close a account folder outlook 2010

Van Lant, Robin
 

If you are not using the account, you might as well remove it.  I’m not sure why it’s showing as grayed out.  To remove it, go to the file menu with Alt F, then arrow down to info and tab till you hear account settings.  Go into account settings and you’ll get to a dialog box that allows you to check the account you want to remove from a list of your accounts and then tab to the Remove button.

WordPress is pretty accessible out of the box. One thing I would recommend
is to turn off the visual editor because that will mess with screen readers.
David I would bet that that was one of the things that was messing with
jaws. You need to uncheck the box that says visual editor.
Also some themes can mess with screen readers as well.
To answer the other persons question, no you don't need to know HTML or any
other type of coding as word press covers the basics but if you want to get
more in depth it wouldn't hurt to know son. By in-depth I mean making your
website look nicer. Like say you wanted to make a list with headings at the
top and then a list of items below that. You might need to know some HTML in
order to do that.
I learned the word press on the fly back into thousand nine, but I'm sure if
you Google there will be some beginner tutorials out there somewhere. You
might also check on bard if you have that because I've seen they posted some
books on WordPress from time to time. They should at least have one or two
that can help a blind individual with who is just beginning withWordPress.
Some of the books might be slightly out of date, but they should have some
useful information.

Hi,

 

It was  suggested one try MSE or  Windows Defender.

 

I spent hours and hours trying out antivirus and actually got AVG to work for 10 weeks though it took countless hours of work.

 

Could some one  off list tell me between  MSE and Windows Defender which is easiest to use per the antivirus   and firewall functions?

 

Thank you so very much!

 

Have a fine day.

Hi,

 

Just so you know, I can’t offer free Wordpress support by Email.  If however, you do want training, happy to discuss it.

 

Thanks.

I built my own web site at http://www.comproom.co.uk using Wordpress.

 

I also offer Wordpress training for those interested, and I am totally blind.

WordPress is pretty accessible out of the box. One thing I would recommend
is to turn off the visual editor because that will mess with screen readers.
David I would bet that that was one of the things that was messing with
jaws. You need to uncheck the box that says visual editor.
Also some themes can mess with screen readers as well.
To answer the other persons question, no you don't need to know HTML or any
other type of coding as word press covers the basics but if you want to get
more in depth it wouldn't hurt to know son. By in-depth I mean making your
website look nicer. Like say you wanted to make a list with headings at the
top and then a list of items below that. You might need to know some HTML in
order to do that.
I learned the word press on the fly back into thousand nine, but I'm sure if
you Google there will be some beginner tutorials out there somewhere. You
might also check on bard if you have that because I've seen they posted some
books on WordPress from time to time. They should at least have one or two
that can help a blind individual with who is just beginning withWordPress.
Some of the books might be slightly out of date, but they should have some
useful information.

you can't delete the tag unless they've fixed that recently. Other than
that it's fine. If you are setting up a website you do need to turn off the
