The interface problem is not language-specific. Usually these things are done with external libraries that are accessible by any, or most, programming language(s). Unfortunately, the reprogramming required to get you what you want is not a small task, which is why it's very difficult to get any of these small outfits to actually do it. Everybody claims poverty--small staff, small budget, looking to innovate for the main customer base, you know the shpiel. But good on ya for continuing to work with these people and guide them toward better access for screenreader users.

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I've been working with Atmosphere Deluxe (http://www.vectormediasoftware.com/atmdeluxehome.htm), and I want to help Vectormedia Software redesign their interface so it works with JAWS. currently, the program is in Visual Basic, which has a hard time being recognized by JAWS, especially since some of the controls are spoken the exact same way (JAWS says "Graphic 0"), despite the fact that each one is different. For example, some of the controls are buttons, and some are sliders, and some are checkboxes. I can't seem to customize them with Frame Viewer, as some of these controls, at least to JAWS, look exactly identical. So now that brings up my question, how can I help Vectormedia Software to trade Visual Basic for a programming language that is universally understood by most screenreaders, but especially JAWS? I was thinking they could redesign the interface to look like the main browser of the Windows operating system. Or even something that can be recognized by all operating systems. Kind of like what Applied Acoustics of Canada (http://www.applied-acoustics.com) does with their physical models of guitars. From what I understand, Strum Acoustic and Strum Electric, made by Applied Acoustics, are designed with C++. If you download Atmosphere Deluxe from http://www.vectormediasoftware.com/atmdeluxedown.htm, you'll be able to understand what I mean when I say the interface of Atmosphere Deluxe is only partially recognized by JAWS. Back in an Email dated May 1, 2010 at 11:23 AM, one of the reps at Vectormedia Software said they could possibly redesign their interface from scratch, but I haven't heard anything from them regarding that or any other questions I have since August 1, 2012 at 3:47 AM. I sure hope the company's still around, because they haven't updated their website since July 22, 2012.

This was good.  I had to guess if I was to perform these steps while inside a message or while in the folder list.  I chose the former.  Anyhow, I found I had the setting of rich text which may be the issue.  I know I would never set that to rich text so who knows how that got there.  Smile.  I will forward a message to my sister and see if she can read it.  It will be a couple of days since she is out-of-town and I do not want to give her tasks when she is so busy.  Smile.

         Are you, by any chance, having Outlook force your incoming e-mail messages to plain text?  Since a very great many e-mail messages are in HTML format when they get forced to plain text a lot of what was contained in them, particularly graphics, gets mangled.  You also lose information that's involved with those graphics.

         I always strongly discourage my clients from forcing plain text because of the potential for lost content that's hard to describe, but is there if you leave the message "unmolested" from its format of composition.

         If you're not forcing plain text if an example of one of these messages can be forwarded to me I might be able to figure out what's going on just by examining what comes in.

Gmail actually does not send copies of these emails to different

have labels which makes it belong to multiple “mailboxes”. As I said

Hotmail or, Outlook.com, as it is now known. Outlook.com is a very good

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

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?

Hello Everyone,

 

I have Outlook 2013 and the latest JAWS 2018.

 

If I forward an email which includes graphics like one from a retailer to my sighted sister, she tells me the graphics are messed up and she cannot read them herself.  I am just using the Outlook forward command from the applications key and maybe adding a sentence to comment on the message at the very beginning.  What could be happening here?  How to fix this?  It has happened to several emails coming from several different senders.

 

Thanks.

 Hi I have not been following this conversation that much but I will say that if you were only using a device or to pop three is a good way to go. This allows you to have messages on your computer but you don’t have to delete them from the server unless you choose to in the set up. Your problem may be in the set up of your account if there is a way you can do it you may want to uninstall your accounts and then reinstall them, just make sure you have all of your email backed up or at least the important ones.

Tom,

         Gmail offers POP access to this very day.  Your problem is not rooted in IMAP access, and going POP will either keep the same problems or introduce others.

          You need to have someone who understands the e-mail client you're using take a careful look at your account setup, what rules you're using, and several other factors.

          Or you can persist in believing that the e-mail access method is what's causing your problem - your call.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

Tom,

         Gmail offers POP access to this very day.  Your problem is not rooted in IMAP access, and going POP will either keep the same problems or introduce others.

          You need to have someone who understands the e-mail client you're using take a careful look at your account setup, what rules you're using, and several other factors.

          Or you can persist in believing that the e-mail access method is what's causing your problem - your call.

Yes, I am thinking very seriously of changing from Gmail to Hotmail or outlook as it is now known. 

 

As I only use one device, a desktop, to read my mail, does Outlook offer a pop3 account?

 

Thanks

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.
