Rick,

            I have several questions before I try to offer any guidance:

1.  Are you already familiar and comfortable with Outlook calendar?

2.  Is the Google Calendar you're trying to manage your own, or does it belong to someone else or another entity and you've been granted modification permissions?

3.  Am I safe in presuming, at least at the moment, that you are trying to use the Google Calendar web interface to create/edit events/appointments?

Google Calendar's own web interface has changed, not like last week recently, but within the last year, so that a minimal set of features for an event, not including notifications, is shown by default.  You must activate the More Options control in order to have the full complement of event options, including the Notifications controls, become visible.  There are only two Notification methods, email and notification.  Email is exactly what you'd think, an e-mail is sent to you to remind you at whatever interval prior to the event you set.  Notification will cause a pop-up on a desktop computer or a notification message on a smartphone that's much like a text, but generated by Google Calendar.

moderated Point of Clarification about Google Calendar

Rick Miller
 

The events I have created on Google calendar were set up by members of my church.  They are usually invitations for me to join a Zoom meeting, and I had them imported from Outlook Calendar and saved them on Google calendar.

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.

Rick Miller
 

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
