Eloquence Behavior Post Updates

Dave Mitchell
 

Hi Everyone,  After the successful installation of the Windows 10 Fall package and the 2018 Beta 3 I have noticed that Eloquence is doing a few new and annoying speech behaviors.  For example, with Alt / Tab the voice dips noticeably at the beginning when voicing the tab destination.  Also when starting to read, the beginning of the sentence is likewise diminished.

Not trying to be a Nattering Naybob of Negativism but wondering if I am alone in this observation.  I’m pondering trying other voices as well but, having done so in the past, I find myself back with Eloquence.

I did a complete restart in hopes of smoothing out these speech quirks but to no good end.

Thanks for your time, Mitch

I'm curious, for somebody who has an iPhone or other smartphone, why would I want to go through so much trouble in terms of looking up somebody's number to find out who their carrier is and then send them a text message via email to which they can't reply? Why not just text them via your iPhone or Android phone since most likely you would want to receive a reply.

LibreOffice

Brad Martin
 

Hi,


I have had OpenOffice for awhile now, and it basically works--though it can be a little flakey with JAWS. I actually like some of the features of the similar LibreOffice better. Some things, like lists and styles like bold and underline are just easier to locate.


But two things I can't seem to do with either OpenOffice or LibreOffice are:

1. I can't figure out how to read a status line to see what page I'm on, how far down the page I am, etc.


2. If I use Control Down Arrow to select a line of text--or multiple lines--JAWS doesn't read the selected text to let me know what's highlighted, as it would in Word.


I'm running JAWS 15 here. Does anybody have a trick for these two things? If I could make this work, I think I'd really like Libre.


P.S. I did find that the 64-bit version of LibreOffice didn't read at all, but the 32-bit version works quite well for the most part.

Thanks in advance,

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

After surviving one of the strongest hurricane in history, tornado laden, earthquake called Irma. yes, Irma was worse than a category 5 hurricane at times her speed was unmeasurable. This storm actually registered on the Richter scale leaving massive and tragic destruction to solid concrete homes and people. I was blessed in that my home was not destroyed just some cosmetic damage occurred. I’m now living in Georgia because of medical reasons not being able to get medication on a timely basis. My family and I got out right before hurricane Maria of which completely flooded the island making matters even worse. Then to add even more insult to injury, rainy season has just started and the rain is coming down in buckets and with no trees landslides are causing havoc. However, there is a glimmer of hope, a large amount of assistance has arrived and things are improving slowly but surely.

I’ll say sometimes being blind is a good thing.

 

Thanks for the prayers.

Why would you need storage to have your Dropbox app? On mobile devices your Dropbox content is not downloaded tro the deviced unless you specifically tell it to download certain files. All you need is a few Megs to install the Dropbox app which then let's you access your files via WiFi or cellular data.

To send a text message from your computer to someone's cell phone, do the following. There will be a complete list of cell phone suffixes to use at the

end of the steps.

 

1. If you want to send a text message to someone using A T&T, for example, and their cell phone number is 555-555-5555. You open a new email message and

in the " To " field type

5555555555 at txt.att.net

You don't put any dashes in the cell number, just the digits.

2. Tab to the subject field and put in a subject line.

3. Tab to the edit field and put in your message. Then send as usual.

 

They receive the text message and, when they reply, it comes to your inbox. Here are the email suffixes you add to the cell phone number.

Hello; don’t know how useful this info is,

Never the less,

 

 

 

To send a text message from your computer to someone's cell phone, do the following. There will be a complete list of cell phone suffixes to use at the

end of the steps.

 

1. If you want to send a text message to someone using A T&T, for example, and their cell phone number is 555-555-5555. You open a new email message and

in the " To " field type

5555555555 at txt.att.net

You don't put any dashes in the cell number, just the digits.

2. Tab to the subject field and put in a subject line.

3. Tab to the edit field and put in your message. Then send as usual.

 

They receive the text message and, when they reply, it comes to your inbox. Here are the email suffixes you add to the cell phone number.

Some time ago, a keystroke was given to change the desktop
view to one
single column. This keystroke was CONTROL plus SHIFT plus
6 on the
numbers row.



Some have said they get results with this command. Others
have said
this key combination does nothing, but that ALT plus
CONTROL plus 6
accomplishes this task. Others say that neither key
combination works
for them. I am one of these latter group. Does anyone know

icons instead
of having to arrow to right and left to see another group
of icons?



Thank you.

Hi Bill,

See if these keystrokes will work for you:

CTRL + SHIFT + 1 Extra Large icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 2 Large Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 3 Medium Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 4 Small Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 5 List view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 6 Details view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 7 Tiles view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 8 Content view.


Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Portia, to obtain which carrier is associated with the cell number, go to:

and enter the number to lookup the carrier.

to send a text, launch your email client, start a new message, and for the to field, type the 10 digit cell number (without the number 1 that normally precedes the area code or dashes) the at sign, and the email address provided by the free SMS gateway lookup, and type in a brief subject and message up to 160 characters and send it as usual.
