Hi, Crist óbal. The person who received a computer from Computers for the Blind, to whom I refered in a previous email did not receive a JAWS license. What she received was a JAWS demo install. She needed to buy her own license.

This email makes absolutely no sense in so many ways.

Even if the PC is crap (what can you reasonably expect for a machine sold to you at $150.00 or less), Just the Jaws license itself makes it something worth looking into.

Probably VFO’s way to increase the amount of individuals using their products while at the same time, banking on building up the revenue through SMA’s going forward.

Again, if you’re looking at one of these machines to begin with, you’re probably limited in your options regardless of your visual impairment.

And by the way, what’s cast-off equipment anyway? I’m writing this email on a refurbished Dell tower that I scored a deal on for example. My monitor? $8 at the Good Will because I was not going to pay upwards of $100 for a screen I have no need for, but for those times I may need my sighted wife to bail me out. My 6 year old HP laserjet printer was starting to give up the ghost so I found a deal on a wireless Brother Laser printer at one of those over-run bulk cash and carry outlets downtown for $10 and a case of 20 compatible ink cartridges for another ten bucks.

Good afternoon everyone,

 

                While we're glad they're working to make Jaws available on their computers Computers to Help People itself leaves lots to be desired! We know of cases where they sold used computers to blind persons that had hardware that was older than they were told it was. They don't offer their own tech support service, and offer equipment that is deffective and seriously out-of-date.

 

                While it's true unemployment is a serious issue among the blind it's also true that blind persons are presented with business and other opportunities that could give them more than any job could. We know this from having offering our opportunity to blind individuals who either flat turned it down or got involved and didn't remain committed to making it work for them. Our advice to anyone wanting assistive technology or want to upgrade your current technology and to skip the rehab rat race if opportunity comes calling it's legal and credible and you know the person presenting it to you, answer the door, let it in, get on board, and make it happen!

 

                There's no reason why blind persons offered such opportunities should be using junked hardware and seriously out-of-date software. It's your responsibility to develop the needed income streams to keep your equipment and applications current. Failure to do this will be a lack of responsibility on your part! The same also goes for viewing those who have done this successfully as braggers, show-offs etc. Someone who wanted to simply brag about their achievements wouldn't offer to help others do what they accomplished. Such thinking only keeps people broke and forces them to be relegated to using cast-off equipment!

 

                We have done what we're suggesting and will gladly discuss this subject off-list. We received a steamy reminder of our responsibility to have income sorces available for when life happens this past weekend. Late friday evening our air conditioning went out and wasn't repaired until late Saturday evening. Because we took responsibility and positioned ourselves to meet unexpected life challenges we had reserves available from "Yes" decisions we made when opportunity came around. We were able to gtake refuge in a local hotel until our apartment had cooled down to where we could return home.

 

                Mary and I wish to urge everyone to follow our example so you can buy current hardware and software and receive the quality support needed to keep it in ship shape. All the best for a great weekend.

 

Peter Donahue

This is pretty cool. For those of us who already have Jaws, probably not a “big deal”, but still. The more who are able to get access to a quality screen reader, the better.

And yes, I am aware of NVDA.

I’ve helped a VI low-income friend get a machine from this organization in the past. They do good work.

Once you get past the initial purchase of Jaws, if you price out the SMAs, it’s basically a $5.00 monthly subscription anyway.

Hi, Gerald. I personally know of one person who received a computer from Computers for the Blind. The computer was refurbished, but they did not check the software on the computer. Because new user profiles were created (possibly to delete personal data) There were sections of the computer which were rendered not accessible by blind or sighted people. Computers for the Blind needs better quality control of the computers they release to those who receive them.

moderated Focused inbox in Microsoft Outlook for Windows

Jason White
 

I'm trying to manage my mail better by invoking the "focused inbox" option in
Outlook for Windows (the latest version installed from Office 365).

After turning on Focused Inbox within the View tab, what's the easiest way to
switch between the "focused" and "other" inboxes, and to move messages between
the two?

Focused Inbox works well under Microsoft Outlook for iOS, but it isn't obvious
how to use it with JAWS (or any other screen reader) under Windows.
So, hints would be welcome from those who have been there already.

Hey guys,
OK, well, i am playing with chrome and am thinking of potentially
switching to it.
So i did a bookmarks import.  I thought to bring up the list of my
bookmarks is control shift d, but it keeps asking me for a bookmark
name.  Did i miss something?
So far this seems to be a lot more responsive using chrome.  What do
you guys think of Chrome?

Cheers,

I need an importing bookmarks lesson as well.  When I see import bookmarks, the only browser I see if Edge and I don't want Edge but Internet Explorer bookmarks to be imported.

Hi Steve,

If you compose a new message you can select signatures under Home > Include > Signatures, shortcut is Alt+H then a and s
However, if you reply to a message it's under Message > Include > Signatures and the shortcut is a bit more complicated, Alte+E then 2, a and s.
If there is another way then I don't know it, I Googled this and found where to go in the ribbon and then simply recorded the shortcut keys.

Hi All,

Using JAWS 2018, Outlook 2016, on a Windows 10 computer. I have multiple signatures in Outlook. I know there is a keystroke to choose my signature for my messages, but I can't recall what it is. Does anyone know the keystroke? Thanks in advance!
