I do not think Jaws will be able to give you the information you would need.

I would suggest seeing if someone with Aira could help you with that, or you would need to find a graphics designer who could create the template for you.

Hi Shirley,
 
Maybe try using your touch cursor or tabbing to see if you can find something that says what screen your on.

Hi Mike,

 

Yes, I tried rebooting. I also pressed windows key plus D and also the alt M and even Control M. Nothing happens. I ask Curtana for mail is the way I find it now. I no longer have the normal list. I hope I didn’t get a virus or something.

 

No, I didn’t finish the letter before the Desktop vanished, but I asked Curtana for mail and finished (rewrote) the important email letter. What the letter had to do with everything is that I was rushing to get it sent out before today—long story. In my hurry, I may have pressed the wrong keys somewhere—or been keying too fast--that darn letter took up a lot of my time and brain power. By the time I sent out my plea for help last night, I was exhausted. (smile).

My next plan is to call Microsoft Disability number. Thought I’d pick your brains on the list first.

I've used family search, and it's not too bad, you need to make use of web quick keys, like E and N and H and V, and use the find command.
It sometimes repeats previous information above what you are looking for, so you need to make sure you are on the latest incident of the information, and it may not be evident that it is a link, you might need to enter on it without knowing if it will give you new information.
I have spent many hours trying to find my great grandfather's extended family, all I can get is New York in 1862, but no siblings or parents.
Once in a while I try again, but never get any further with it.

Apologies if I am writing off-topic, but since the discussion is about One Drive, I would like to share my concern related to it. Recently I installed One Drive also on my iPhone, but unlike Drop Box, I was not able to listen to audio books that I copied from my PC and ;pasted to One Drive. In fact, I could se the list of all files, but regardless which one I would click, I could always hear only one of them, I think the first one. Any explanations?

I think I paid including taxes $159 for 3 Tbs of storage with drop box.  Using Marie’s logic, $120 for 1 Tb per user and you can have 5 different users is still the best bang for your buck. Strictly mathematically it is $120 for 5 Tbs of storage.

Hello List,

 

I have been using Chrome for several months and in general, I find it very workable.  One problem I find is that when activating an “in page” link, JAWS does not start reading from that position.  I have enough residual vision to see that it appears to move to the link on the page but does not read from that point.  I would appreciate any comments-
