That's right, it's not restricted to Chrome. All Web browsers have spell-checkers. That's one of the first things I do when I try a new one is to turn those annoying things off. Spell-checker, grammar-checker, they all go off. I was properly taught to spell and construct sentences in school. I neither need nor desire software to correct me. Actually, I'd much prefer to have a person do it than a piece of code, like my good pal Dave Durber, ha ha, who's been doing it for years, whether I need it or not! LOLLOL! You know I'm just having you on, Dave, or at least I *hope* you do.

It's not JAWS saying misspelled, it's Chrome. Turn off automatic spell-checking. I don't know where that's done because I'm not a Chrome user, but it's in settings or options somewhere.

Hi List,

While posting on Facebook yesterday, I got annoyed by JAWS saying ‘misspelled’ for every single word, so that I could not check my text before posting it. Of course, the reason was that my text was in Albanian, not in English, but I wonder if I can set JAWS not to say ‘misspelled’?

I am using latest JAWS, in this case with Google Chrome.

Best wishes,

Hey, folks. I do an aweful lot of work in several different web browsers, and the only one I notice this issue with is Google Chrome. What happens is JAWS 18 will forget where I left off if I have to leave the window for any reason. I don't see this issue in Firefox/IE. Anyone else seeing this? Is there a painless way to resolve it? I can use place markers, so if there's no fix it's not a major dealbreaker. Just slightly annoying. Thanks for help, if there is any.

Hello GezimL
 
I do not think that in this case JAWS is to blame. I have had the same problme on a number of sites over several years. What causes this problem I have no idea. I often come across this problem, when I am composing an email message to a company from their web site, -either to get further information or to pose a question. It is extremely annoying. At present, I cannot think of where and when I last had this problem.

You can press Alt+Enter to bring up the properties and find it there with the Jaws cursor otherwise it depends whether you are you using Windows 7 or Windows 10.

In Windows 7 you have to go into Folder Options and over to the second tab, can’t recall what it is called. Here you find a treeview with a bunch of stuff and among those you can select to show extensions for known file types, show hidden files and folders etc.

In Windows 10 it’s much easier and you can do it on the fly from th eView menu or use the shortcut Alt+V followed by H and F. Pressing it once will show extensions and pressing this key combination again will hide them since the setting is a checkbox called “File Name Extensions”. If you go via the View menu, press Alt+V, down arrow once then use Control+right arrow which quickly takes you to the correct group of controls called “Show/Hide Toolbar”.

Is this Outlook 2016? If I go to File > Account Settings and then to the data file tab all my accounts are listed including the full path to the data file.

In Outlook 2016, however, they have an “OST” extension.

Also, and this is the beauty if you use IMAP or set up an Outlook.com account with exchange active sync, there really is no need to back up these files. If I get a new computer or for some reason want to set up my accounts from scratch I just delete the accounts and then re-create them and all my mail, contacts and so on will sync back down from the servers and my local copy of the data file is created new.

Yes. Do windows-r and type c colon backslash. (I used the words rather than the punctuation marks there.

Then do Contrrol-e for search and type outlook.pst and hit enter.

It will likely take a while, but you should find it.

It is usually buried under your user, appdata folder.

Just out of curiocity, why did you disable automatic Firefox updates? At this point updates in my  opinion will only bring improvements and it would seem that we are past that time when upgrading Firefox was a bad idea.

In Outlook 2016, however, they have an “OST” extension.

Also, and this is the beauty if you use IMAP or set up an Outlook.com account with exchange active sync, there really is no need to back up these files. If I get a new computer or for some reason want to set up my accounts from scratch I just delete the accounts and then re-create them and all my mail, contacts and so on will sync back down from the servers and my local copy of the data file is created new.

Sieghard

Yes. Do windows-r and type c colon backslash. (I used the words rather than the punctuation marks there.

Then do Contrrol-e for search and type outlook.pst and hit enter.

It will likely take a while, but you should find it.

It is usually buried under your user, appdata folder.

Hello, I want to back up my outlook.pst file. I couldn’t find it going through control panel and then mail. I can find the main folder. Yet there is no outlook.pst file. Is there some other way I should use to locate the file and copy it?

With this kind of issue, I’d call Microsoft accessibility: 800-936-5900

I’ve been using Office 365/Outlook 2016 for a couple years now and have never experienced what you are describing.

 

Best of luck,

Richard

Hello,

 

Lately Outlook 2016 has been locking up. Not all the time. I get the message to close the app button. I press enter and nothing happens. I use jaws cursor and try to do a left click and nothing happens. I then try to shut the laptop down by going to the desk top and pressing alt f4. Desk top doesn’t come up. I then press the windows key and the start menu doesn’t show up. The only thing I could do then is a hard shut down. I went back into outlook when the laptop came back up. I wanted to do a repair which I thought was under help. Couldn’t find it. Does anyone have any thoughts of what I should do? Where is repair?

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin

It's not JAWS saying misspelled, it's Chrome. Turn off automatic spell-checking. I don't know where that's done because I'm not a Chrome user, but it's in settings or options somewhere.

Hi List,

 

While posting on Facebook yesterday, I got annoyed by JAWS saying ‘misspelled’ for every single word, so that I could not check my text before posting it. Of course, the reason was that my text was in Albanian, not in English, but I wonder if I can set JAWS not to say ‘misspelled’?

 

I am using latest JAWS, in this case with Google Chrome.

 

Best wishes,

Gezim
