Even better addition by someone on the Win10 for Screen Reader Users group.  Once you hit WinKey+V to gain focus on the notification then hit the Delete key.  Regardless of what the notification is for, Alarm or otherwise, the Delete key press will dismiss it if you have focus on it.

Nino,

          Still "no cigar" but at least something close.  Joseph Lee informed me that WinKey+V would dismiss the alarm, but it doesn't.  What it does do, though is to place focus on the alarm notification when it's sounding.  TABbing three times after hitting WinKey+V will place focus on the Snooze button while four times lands you on the Dismiss button.

          Hope this helps at least somewhat.

Nino,

           Shockingly, there does not appear to be a way to dismiss an Alarm via the keyboard.  There is a Q&A thread on answers.microsoft.com about this dating from January this year, and as of that time there was no functionality to allow an alarm to be snoozed or dismissed via the keyboard.  One has to activate one of the buttons in the Alarm dialog that displays.

           I have just finished creating a Feedback Hub submission regarding the Alarm function and the need to be able to snooze or dismiss via keyboard shortcuts and, ideally, touch gestures for touch enabled devices.   You might want to go into Feedback Hub and do an upvote and submit a reply.

Sieghard,

          Just FYI, behind the scenes Gmail's "labels" are all implemented as IMAP folders and the Inbox itself is a logical folder that is capable of referencing messages in all other (non-trash, non-spam) folders at one time.

          I have always hated the fact that Gmail elected to use the term "labels" but as soon as you start using Gmail with an e-mail client and IMAP access each and every label has its own IMAP folder.  Filters assigning "labels" are actually placing messages into these folders, too.

          And I'm 100% in agreement with you with regard to using IMAP unless you have no other option (which is becoming really rare these days).  The moment you need to add another device, or even decide to get a new computer, the server-side nature of IMAP becomes a godsend.  There's no need to do anything with regard to porting messages, contacts, etc.  You simply set up your e-mail account(s) on your new device or in your newly chosen e-mail client and everything you're used to having around, including every message and folder, "automagically" appears (or at least the messages and folders do - some clients "play better" than others with IMAP servers with regard to contacts).

Good morning:

 

I tried using the windows10 alarm, I used it with kortanna.

Gmail actually does not send copies of these emails to different accounts. Gmail uses labels and not really mailboxes so oe message can have labels which makes it belong to multiple “mailboxes”. As I said before, gmail and I never saw eye to eye and I have always preferred Hotmail or, Outlook.com, as it is now known. Outlook.com is a very good and advanced service and I highly recommend it.

Hi,

 

After changing to a new computer a few weeks ago, I was unable to get my old gmail account under pop3 using Outlook 2013 to work and was forced to change to imap.  The newly installed Outlook would not allow me to setup a Gmail pop3 account.  

I am anything but pleased with the result because I am being flooded with duplicate mail.

 

The mail is downloaded into the inbox as you would expect  but a copy of many of the messages is sent to another box called “important”. I have to go through this list as well because sometimes this box receives messages which are not sent to the inbox. This means manually removeing messages from both boxes.

 

 

Just today, another gmail account, which has nothing to do with this one, received messages from this list but they  had a 2017 date and they were sent to the “important” box of that account.

 

Does anyone know of another provider which has free email accounts like gmail  which allows pop3 accounts. There is Hotmail of course but have never used it.

 

Thanks

 

Tom

Hi: Up until recently, I’ve had a .pop account with my Outlook 2010. Per recommendations from knowledgeable and trustworthy individuals, I’ve switched over to imap. What I’ve noticed is that the action is a lot less crisp and snappy than with my old .pop account. The advantage with imap is, supposedly, that your messages, except for the absolute most recent ones, reside on your server rather than taking up space on your hard drive, thus older messages can be downloaded if you click on them. My interaction with my .pop email account, deleting, moving, reading, used to be immediate. I now experience a lot of sluggish delays, plus JAWS freezing, with my imap. When I delete messages, same thing. I often have to sit there and wait for a deletion to finish, and JAWS freezes. It often doesn’t seem to matter whether I delete one message or three conversations. What’s the experience of the rest of you?

Yes, but they don’t actually sync, e.g. if you reply to a message on one computer or device the message on the other computer is not flagged as replied to and the sent message is not in the sent items folder. Also, if you delete a message on one computer it does not get deleted from all others etc. I usually compare POP and IMAP/Exchange the same way as I would compare a landline to a smartphone. You can make a phone call with both, but with one you are sort of stuck and very limited with respect to functionality and with the other (the smartphone) you can do a lot more and more efficiently. Anybody who has a smartphone and a computer or even more than 2 devices really should not use POP any more. Also, discussing mail doesn’t even touch on the advantages when it comes to syncing contacts and calendars with IMAP and Exchange/Exchange Active Sync and also it is so much more secure in that if your computer crashes and you loose your PST file you have lost nothing if you use IMAP or Exchange, you simply set up your account on a new machine and everything is there.

moderated List Rules - Fri, 6/1/18 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Friday, 1 June 2018
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-04:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

Tom,

          Also, the messages in Gmail's Important box, which is a virtual folder that is meant to contain a subset of your normal Inbox messages as Gmail learns what you prioritize (at least via the web interface, anyway), are always a subset of what's in your Inbox and if you delete the message from Important it disappears "automagically" from Inbox and vice versa.

           I never even look at the Important virtual folder since everything is contained in Inbox and I always go through all of my e-mail messages.

Tom,

            This has absolutely nothing to do with IMAP protocol.  It sounds like filters are being used, probably in Outlook itself, which is copying messages.  Nothing you describe is characteristic of the many, many e-mail clients I've set up over the years using IMAP access, and that's the only protocol I'll use if I have a choice since the vast majority of people are accessing their accounts from multiple devices these days and POP quickly becomes a nightmare scenario with multiple devices and lack of very careful planning.

Hi,



The other thing that may impact the speed is who your email provider is,
since its taking and receiving the emails from their servers , so it may be
a problem using imap with that particular provider, do you know does your
provider support the imap type? For example I use sky which is designed for
pop emails, but I use imap , since I'm not using the email protocol sky
recommend I do sometimes get slow down or an error message, but the error
messages aren't frequent and the speed delay isn't enough to bother me, and
is definitely worth the trade-off to be using imap instead of pop

Subject: Outlook, .pop vs imap account



Hi: Up until recently, I've had a .pop account with my Outlook 2010. Per
recommendations from knowledgeable and trustworthy individuals, I've
switched over to imap. What I've noticed is that the action is a lot less
crisp and snappy than with my old .pop account. The advantage with imap is,
supposedly, that your messages, except for the absolute most recent ones,
reside on your server rather than taking up space on your hard drive, thus
older messages can be downloaded if you click on them. My interaction with
my .pop email account, deleting, moving, reading, used to be immediate. I
now experience a lot of sluggish delays, plus JAWS freezing, with my imap.
When I delete messages, same thing. I often have to sit there and wait for a
deletion to finish, and JAWS freezes. It often doesn't seem to matter
whether I delete one message or three conversations. What's the experience
of the rest of you?

Bill,

 

You can see the same messages on as many computers as you wish with POP3 as long as on each machine you keep the box checked to keep a copy of the message on the server. I do this with my account I share with my wife.

Same thing here with IMAP. I still use it, though, because I have two computers, and I wouldn’t be able to see the same messages on both computers if I used POP.

I used to have this in the past, but not for a long while. I guess the question is, what version of Jaws are you using? I’m on Office 2016 now, so I don’t’ know if that matters at all.

In general though, I’ve found imap to be less snappy with deleting and Jaws reacting than pop3 was. It’s not something I really even notice anymore though. Microsoft Exchange accounts are pretty good as far as Jaws responsiveness too.
