Yes, this is typically a link in many e-mails especially from groups, businesses ,etc.  Not sure why this gets read with a mouse pass over.

Not sure what Dollars you are talking about, but it should be a lot less than $350.

Here in Canada the upgrade is $259.99 from the Microsoft Store, but I can buy a full version of Windows 10 Pro from a number of large computer shops for less, one store where I often buy stuff sells it for $158.49.

And yes, I believe you could buy a recycled license or whatever they call these type of licenses you can buy on eBay for a few bucks.

So, what’s the legal or ethical status.

Can I find legal keys online or best to purchase from the Microsoft store. $350, for a windows 10 pro key.

I guess this is very difficult for anybody to explain unless they are also using the same Earthlink web portal.
Typically you would find a button which would allow you to browse for a file which you can then attach, you most likely won't be able to copy and paste a file to attach it like you can do in Outlook and I doubt you would want to open the file.
Is there any reason you don't want to use an email client? If not Outlook because of the cost, there are free email clients like thunderbird or the Mail app if you use Windows 10.

Hi, I use https://webmail.earthlink.net. Everything seems fine until I have to attach a file to the message that I write. I'm using jaws 16 and internet explorer as the browser. I usually don't have a problem with this combination but usually when I use brouse then I select the file do I also have to open the document that I want to attach? that sounds strange but my question here is can I copy the item from lets say that the document that I want is located on my desktop, can't I just copy the file in question? wouldn't that work? I think that there needs to be a better way of doing this? Thank you for asking me some questions so that I can walk through how I try to send an attachment along with a message.

Okay, try these steps.
1. Press, Insert + 6, on the number row above the main keyboard to open the Settings Center, now press, control, shift , + D, to open the
Settings Center Default All Applications.
 
2. Down arrow to, Speech Verbosity closed, right arrow to open.  Down arrow 1 time to hear what Verbosity Level you're running.
 
3. Down arrow to, Configure Verbosity Levels closed, right arrow to open.
 
4. Down arrow to the level you're running, Beginner..., and press the spacebar to open.  Note, do not press enter because if you press enter Settings Center will think you're done and close, so use the spacebar.
 
5. You're now in a list of options, so down arrow to, Position information, press the spacebar to uncheck this.
 
6. Tab to, Okay, press the spacebar, again tab to, Okay, and press enter to save your change and close the Settings Center.

Try the following:

Go to the Jaws settings center default all applications, then speech verbosity, then configuration.
In the list of items, (number 17) position information, uncheck the box, and
save your settings on the way out.
Jaws will still announce the location / number of the item when using the say-all or say current line command.
This worked for me in Jaws 2019.

I believe that lowering the Jaws verbosity from the beginner level may help.
I usually leave it at this level, but I change the level of what it announces, to custom announcements instead of all, but I too hear the number of items on the desktop, and I would not want to not hear this.
But to change it from beginner, open the jaws menu by entering on the Jaws icon on the desktop and go into help and up arrow to startup wizard, and you can just press next until you get to the below screen, and you can change it from beginner and that should help.

Hi Justin,
Which browser did you have trouble downloading music?
I downloaded a song a few months back, and it wasn't a difficult experience.
I used Chrome.
The only complaint I had which I submitted when I got a request from Amazon to rate my purchase was that the song I paid for and downloaded was recorded in only 128 bit quality, and I would expect at least 192 bit quality for this, I prefer 320 bit.
Since it's been a couple months, I cannot tell you the steps, but it might require listening to the word link when we are looking for something to download.

You can set up your notifications in facebook so that you receive your messages and other notifications via email. That way, you can read and respond to your messages via email. However, the last time I was using this system, and that was a while ago, you couldn't initiate chats/messages via email.

My sister used the email notifications to communicate with us on Facebook when she was in China for a holiday a couple of years ago. Facebook is banned there but she could respond to messages and comments via email.

But Alexa devices don’t only support Amazon Music whether limited to what you get with Prime which is about 1 Million tracks or what you get with the additional Amazon Music Unlimited subscription which here in Canada is $8.95 Canadian.

I was so happy when I just read in my Alexa newsletter that apple Music was finally supported here in Canada. Alexa devices have always supported Spotify and Deezer so if you have a subscription with one of those services you could have easily enabled that and set Spotify or Deezer as your primary music source, then when you ask Alexa to play a particular song, artist, album, station or playlist it would come from your selected service.

In the US Apple Music has been available in the same way I think for about a year and now that it is available in Canada I can finally cancel my Amazon Music Unlimited membership and put that money towards the new Disney or Apple TV offering which is soon coming here, most likely we’ll get both anyways, but my wife and I have had our Apple Music family subscription for years and it’s still our preferred streaming service. Now that we can simply ask Alexa to play something that is a big bonus. Now I just wish Amazon would hurry along and offer family accounts here in Canada as well, Audible finally arrived a couple of years ago and starting about 1 year ago it was more or less on par with respect to what books were available here and in the US and we get most of the promotions now as well except that I think there still is no Platinum membership which gives you 2 credits a month. But otherwise Audible Canada is a really good deal because the monthly 1 credit membership is $14.95 Canadian, same as what it is in the States in US Dollars despite the fact that currently there is a good 30% difference in value, nice to see that finally a company isn’t simply using the exchange rate to come up with a higher amount for their service.

To get prime music you have to pay for it. I know that because I have a prime membership.   Which I have, the $8 per month more then covers the cost of shipping.  Some items the shipping costs more then the actual item itself.  I also enjoy the access to movies.  Anyway, unless I am missing something you want to charge others for a service that you have to pay for.  Is kind of like the person that bought a big box of batteries at a $ store then turned around and sold them at a marked up price at his garage sale.
