moderated How Many of you out there have used Google Calendar?

Rick Miller
 

Dear Listers:

 

I am learning how to use Google Calendar.  I have learned how to create an event, but am trying to set notifications.  I have read that there are three ways to receive notifications—either by e-mail, desktop or alert.  Notifications are not working.  When I create events for myself, usually, I don’t want to invite any guests.  The events I create are primarily Zoom meetings or classes at the church I belong to.  When I have tried to set notifications I have gone into the General settings of Google Calendar.  When it comes to notifications it shows that there are three kinds of notification settings—off, Desktop or alert.  When I create events for which I have described—for meetings at church or Bible study meetings in which I do not want to invite any guests, how can I go about getting notifications to work?  Is there anybody out there totally blind who has used Google calendar?  If so, is there any way in the world you can help me or give me the advice I need?

moderated Re: Outlook Address book

 

Vaughn,

            Let me try to describe what I see happening under Outlook 2016.  There appears to be some interaction between "who I've sent or received an e-mail to/from before" and the Address Book when you type a name rather than all or just a distinctive part of an e-mail address.  Why this is, or how to change it, I cannot explain.

            I have never used Outlook to send a message to my partner, Jim.  However I have previously sent messages to another Jim and a Jill, too.  When I type the two characters Ji (note the capital J) I instantly get a dropdown list appearing with the other Jim and Jill, from which I can select either of the two, but my partners address does not appear.  

            Contrast that with what I get when I type the single character j (lower case).  What shows up is the two previously noted Jim and Jill, plus several additional e-mail addresses I've sent to before, all of which contain the letter j somewhere in them, but my partner's name and e-mail address is still not among the things shown.

             Now, I've gone and sent my partner a message using only his e-mail address, but not fetching anything from the Address book.  When I next go to create a new message and type j into the To field the first item in the list is now his e-mail address, followed by all the others, so most recently sent, and exactly what was used in the sending, is at the top of the list of options.

              Since doing all those tests, I opened Options when I was in the compose window, and activated the Empty Auto-Complete List.  After doing that, no e-mail addresses or names show up when I type a part or all of a name in the To field.  I can enter multiple names separated by semicolon.  If I hit Send, Outlook will begin asking me which address I want if there exists more than one for a given typed name, or just plugging in what's associated with it if there's one.

               So, after all of that, I can say I don't get anything in the auto-complete dropdown list that acts like what it appears you and I were used to in the past.  When I need to select names from my address book I activate the button for the To/CC/BCC fields and use search and select in the dialog that comes up, as I know a number of the addresses I want to use, and would think should pre-populate in that autocomplete list, are not doing so.

                The best explanation of how autocomplete works comes straight from the horse mouth:

Information about the Outlook AutoComplete list 

Note well in the statement, "The list contains SMTP addresses, LegacyExchangeDN entries, and display names for people to whom you have sent mail previously."  (emphasis mine).  

                 So, if you have just set up a new instance of Outlook, the building of the AutoComplete List starts from scratch (if you haven't imported a pre-existing one) so until you send messages to someone for the first time, they're not going to show up.

                  I find it odd that there isn't a use of the Address Book in generating the auto-complete list.  The article also goes into how you can import existing autocomplete lists from other Outlook instances, which I've never done.

                  Sorry for the length of this, but clearly autocomplete isn't what many of us think it should be.

I did try that. After I hit Insert+Z to turn off Virtual Keyboard commands I hit Alt+Shift+T and I get a Back menu instead of a Tools menu. When I tab I get options to either reload a page or else do various other things with a page, but I never get the Toold menu. I need the help of one of you who has actually used Google Calendar and who actually knows how to make notifications in Google Calendar work, and I am trying to appeal to anybody.

Vaughn,

              Just so we are both crystal clear, what are you referring to when you say Outlook?  Certain things suggest the standalone email client while others suggest Outlook.com.  You also say a couple of things that seem like they refer to the Windows 10 Mail App, which is different from either any Outlook client or Outlook.com.

               Can you identify what Outlook you're using, including version, e.g., Outlook 2016/2019/365, if it's the client or Outlook.com?  Is the Windows 10 Mail App in the mix somewhere?

                I have to know where to look, precisely, in order to give you the answers you seek, if I can do so.

shift f10 seems like a lot of extra steps. A page can have lots of links and I was hoping there might be a setting in jaws that would say a link is external. It would give quick cues when navigating through a page quickly. I know it will say same page link for links that go to a spot on the page.  Maybe jaws just does not have that feature

Hello, Brian,

 

Thank you. I explored Outlook and think I can better explain my goal.

 

Keep in mind that I am speaking of Win. 10. Apps are similarly named in Windows and Apple devices.

 

I noticed that Mail has somehow downloaded my contacts. I have an account in Mail for 2 Gmail accounts and an .edu account. I am able to comfortably switch between accounts and able to use address books from each one.

 

In Outlook the setup is similar regarding accounts. I am receiving emails for each account. Figuring that my university account was the default I ended up removing “my outlook data 1” and defaulting that data to my personal Gmail account. What it looks like a list of address books but no substance. I am truly perplexed as the Mail app automatically downloaded my contacts whereas Outlook did not.

 

I realized that MS Exchange is for school and work. I also wonder if my Windows 10 being an academic version has anything to do with the settings. It seems to be influencing other computer settings. But I personally purchased Office 365. And registered my personal email for that 365 account.

 

I read and attempted the whole webmail for Gmail and export my contacts but during the process I realized that this didn’t feel right.

 

Pardon for the long email but I wanted to be clear. I prefer Outlook as I find it more accessible.

 

Look forward to your response.

 

Kindly,

 

Vaughn

My guess is that this is controlled by which account is set as your primary/default account if you have multiple accounts set up in Outlook.

Try ALT+F,I,S,A  (File Tab, Account Info, Account Settings dropdown, Account settings item).  At this point the account settings dialog will appear, and I'm going to presume you're familiar with it.  Take a cruise through the account list and see if the one currently set as default is that Exchange account.  If you then change the default account to Gmail it's likely to use the repositories associated with that as "first port of call."

Kandace,

 

You didn't mention what version of Excel you're using but if you have a Bookshare subscription, you might also look at its website. The book Excel 2010 for Dummies by Greg Harvey is very well done and has at least one chapter on pivot tables. I expect he might have updated the book for later versions of Excel.
