desktop packmate error

Klaus Vielhauer
 

Hello,
I have installed Jaws18 and get an error message during windows 10 startup.
It indicates that Microsoft active sync is not installed properly and desctop packmate cannot be activated.
Jaws and Windows come up and work after I press ok.
My search in Google results in information that active sync is for mobile devices and available for old Windows versions only.
Please advise what to do.
Klaus
 


Re: Big problem with JAWS and Excel.

Allan <allan.milne@...>
 


Ralf - good idea; tried copying a spreadsheet to my c:\temp foder ... and also created a new spreadsheet in that folder ...
in both cases it appeared to work fine and then after entering a few rows of data (approx. 10 rows) I got the sticky behaciour with extreme slowness in responding to keystrokes again ...
so no difference from the oneDrive cloud folder behaviour I found earlier!

Perhaps the only further information is that it appears to misbehave only when adding new cells; navigating around a spreadsheet with existing cell contents does not seem to cause the behaviour.

I'm using Office on my local machine.

Any further ideas?
Allan

Re: Open Library: Will Protected DAISY Files From There Work With PAC Mate Omni?

Soronel Haetir
 

I don't know about PacMate but the BookPort+ ships with an NLS key
already loaded. I would suggest you simply try loading the book files
on to the device and see if it works.

Yes, Kelly. I read the same thing. My issue has been that, when I
navigated to Account Settings within my NLS BARD account and attempted
to find a user key to load onto my PAC Mate Omni, I couldn't find one.
The only devices this online source points to, are ones marketed by
HIMS, HumanWare, or PLEXTALK. Thinking I would attempt a Learning
Ally/RFB&D user key, I found that the UAK which used to work with the
PAC Mate seems to have been removed from the Learning Ally Website and
is therefore deemed to be out of date.

Hence, my next step was writing to the primary JAWS list and to the
PM list, which might still have a few active users. I purchased my PM
Omni on the aftermarket from an individual who lives overseas and who
is not a U.S. citizen. So obviously that PAC Mate was not in the
beginning registered with NLS, if that even used to be possible.

I have written to the NLS BARD community about the specific problem I
am attempting to solve here and might even get hold of someone at the
Open Library project itself. I will note on this list any solution I
arrive at, in case anyone besides me is interested in the same
solution

Thank you.

Re: Need To Re-enable Hyperlinks in Outlook E-mail

Hello; here's just a thought, I'm wondering if Outlook may be disabling the
links because the program thinks they are spam or lead to a phishing
Website,


To access the option for preventing phishing links from functioning, click
the "Junk" button and select "Junk Email Options."

Junk Email Options

Remove the check mark from the box labeled "Disable Links and Other
Functionality in Phishing Messages" to restore your ability to click links.

what they conceal is vital.

Hello, everyone.



For some reason, I have recently lost the ability to directly access links
in an e-mail, and have also lost the ability to create huyperlinks in
e-mails I send out.



Regarding the creation of hyperlinks in e-mails I send out, I used to be
able to do this by simply hitting the enter key at the end of the involved
link.



Does anyone know how I can enable the huyperlink function in Outlook e-mail?



I’m using Office 365, Outlook 2016, and Windows 7 here with Jaws 18.

leaning away from the larger hard drive due to the $500 difference in price.
It seems rather high to gain an additional 500 GB.
Am I missing something here which should be considered in my decision?

I remember my first desktop computer purchased back in 1987. I paid $500 for a 20 Meg hard drive so I would not have to use 5 and a quarter floppy disks to install programs.
