I am not sure what to say here since I know nothing about PC Audio Labs.  Are you able to uninstall that particular version of team viewer and reinstall an general one?  If this is some sort of security which prevents third party software, you may be stuck.  Sigh.

I have used Team viewer program for a Windows computer.  It is free.  It does allow for screen sharing.  It is accessible.  It does not have an audio option so you would need to use the phone for example.  Another way is to open up your word processing software and write back and forth on it once you are connected.  I have done that a few times when the telephone connection went bad.  Smile.

 

FYI:  My sister has an Apple computer and I have a Windows computer and Team viewer works for us.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

Recently, I was getting some help from my sighted friend, Markus Johnson (yes, that's "Markus" with a K, not a C), and we ran into a problem with ITeleport, a software that allows one to share their screen with another. Specifically, ITeleport is being blocked by Google for security reasons, due to an "unrecognized device". Strangely enough, we used to be able to log on to ITeleport in the past with no problems at all. That being said, is there an alternative to ITeleport that won't experience that kind of problem? More specifically, is there a screenreader-friendly software for screen sharing? I know there's Team Viewer, but the version I have was specifically installed by PC Audio Labs, the company that makes the computer I have it on. I used to have Yuuguu (I think I spelled that right), which is both a screen sharing and chat software, but that one wasn't exactly screenreader friendly.

Re: 2 questions about Office 365

Van Lant, Robin
 

On the View ribbon, tab over to a checkbox for  “Show messages as conversation”.  Check that box.  As an aside, you will also want to go into Options on the file menu and arrow down to the Ease of Access section. Hit space on that, then tab until you hear  something about “don’t expand conversation when you arrow over them”.  This will keep Outlook from automatically opening a conversation thread as you are arrowing up and down in your mailbox.  To open a thread, you either right arrow or hit enter on the item.  Close a thread by hitting left arrow.  I’ve found this is a little quirkier in Outlook 2016 than it used to be, but it’s still a great feature for wading through group list messages.

Hello,

  1. If by “dark mode” you mean a high contrast setting, I use the Windows High Contrast color scheme for this.  The color scheme options available within Office programs don’t seem to make any visible difference to me.  The potential downside of using high contrast is that it overrides most color flagging in Outlook and Excel.  In other words, Outlook offers options to have certain messages or calendar entries color coded and these don’t show up in the High Contrast color scheme.  The exception is items on your task list or that you have flagged in your inbox with a due date will turn red once overdue. Same goes for Excel. If I get a spreadsheet with cells that have been shaded in a particular color, the Windows High Contrast scheme overrides this.  This is actually great for me when I’m focused on the content of the cells and using a bit of remaining vision, but is a terrible problem when I am trying to ensure that my spreadsheet looks presentable to sighted people I’m about to send it to.  I sometimes turn off the Windows High Contrast Color scheme to review a spreadsheet before sending.

 

  1. Yes, you can organize message by conversation, and by date.  I do this for my JAWS group emails.

Re: windows 10 install question

Shouldn't be too hard, if you can get your computer to boot off the usb device.  That may require sighted help depending on the computer.


Last time I did something like that I used image for windows to copy my old drive to my new one making the partitions larger, then swapped drives.

Re: Accessible Screen Sharing Software

 

TeamViewer is a great product for the stated need.  It is easy to use and accessible.  If you're repeatedly accessing the same machines it remembers the partner IDs, too.

Also, NVDA with the Golden Cursor add-on can be very handy for accessing sites with lots of unlabeled controls.  You may still need sighted help for the setup.

Re: Accessible Screen Sharing Software

I think definitions are getting confused here.  Neither the windows 10 assistance feature nor team viewer, in my experience will allow a blind person to operate another computer.  The only thing that will do that is Jaws Tandem, something using cytrix or the like, or whatever NVDA has to offer.
