thanks Chris. I lost mine a few years ago because I didn't think installing PCPE would be useful and accessible.
but now that I replaced the battery, I see the version of the program is 3.1 and considered to give it a try.

They usually come in the box.  It is a plain old a-b cable like we used
to use on printers.

It wasn't all that accessible, but it can give you some useful info if
you need to know things like when your last ups event was and the like.

moderated Access to the NextDoorsite

Justin Mcdevitt
 

Hello Group,

 

For a number of years, I have been a member of the Nextdoor.com neighborhood site, specific to my immediate neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods.

Until recently, I have been able to post messages to the site which I attempted to do e arlier this morning. However, as soon as I opened the message link, and tabbed to the subject field, Jaws stopped speaking. Nonetheless, I tabbed to the message body field and began composing a message. Again, JAWS was silent, so I could not read the content of what I was writing.

I have been using Google Chrome for a couple of months. Could this be a Google issue, or do I need to do a JAWS repair, try a different browser or is Nextdoor no longer accessible as it has been, necessitating bringing this to their attention.  

I would guess that some of the US members have and do use this site.

Any help is appreciated.

 

Peace to all,  Justin  


moderated Creating a group in outlook

Justin Mcdevitt
 

Hello Group,

Up until recently, I had no real reason to create groups from my Contacts using Outlook. However, at this point, I’m involved with a number of activities within my community where this feature is something that would be convenient as a contact option.

I had spoken with Bill White about this and rather to use the ribbon commands, he suggested using Control/Shift/L where I create a group name. After identifying a group name, I tabbed one time  to the Members Table field, arrowing down to identify contacts to fill the group. At this point, I received a message that “Members list table is unavailable.”

Am I on the right track, or it there another way to build  a group?

 

Best, Justin  


moderated i found a bug regarding jaws+f10 running task list

mike mcglashon
 

Hey guys:

 

I found a bug in jaws2021,

That, if I hit jaws+f10,

Jaws only lists the running tasks in the same desktop where jaws is loaded;

 

This came up because I use multiple desktops, and,

Jaws is only loaded in one of them;

 

Also,

I do not believe that this bug is only for jaws2021,

I believe this has been a phenomenon in even older versions;

 

It looks to me as if jaws never contemplated people using multiple desktops in windows 10;

 

 

Please advise as you like.

I tried this, and not only were buttons not labeled, but list items, and search results weren't either.

Hi, there are a few buttons that aren’t labeled but if you’ll use the tab key you’ll find the search field to search for podcast. Type in the name and hit enter. Give it a few seconds and use tab to locate the results. Hit enter on the podcast, then with tab key once more you’ll find a subscribe button. After that again using tab, you should find a list of episodes. Enter on the episode. If it doesn’t start playing right away, tab till you find the play button. Just ignore the buttons that aren’t labeled.

That's entirely possible, particularly if you, at any point in time, checked that checkbox to not show the Delete confirm dialog box again.

This is one reason I encourage people to think long and hard before disabling this sort of thing.  Sometimes, it's just fine, but at others it allows you to accidentally trigger something with a single key press and never know that you've triggered it.

And the straight delete function will delete all existing messages in a conversation if the "parent/root" message is selected, whether the conversation is expanded or not.

When I select a root message in a conversation, and hit delete, I get a dialog box that says, "Delete applies to all items in this folder that are part of the conversation," with a checkbox for "Don't show this message again," and Delete selected messages and Cancel buttons.

This presumes, of course, that conversation view is in use.
