Works fine with Jaws 2018 as well. It's pre-2018 versions that have issues with any working version of Firefox (you shouldn't be using pre-quantum firefox at all).

Unless other, very specific reasons are given, you should always just get the latest version of any web browser. Just go to the mozilla site and download it. We're at v.81, now.

Latest version seems fine with 2021. I assume no major problems with
2020 either, haven't been any in years.

HH, and that's a very important proviso.   I had not even thought about "accessible" in terms of "from the command line only."

I couldn't have helped there, either, but I do think it's important for anyone who doesn't need access via a GUI to mention it, as that opens up all sorts of options that might not otherwise be considered.

As a general statement, I know of few users these days who have any proficiency with command line interfaces (CLIs).  If you (any you) do, that really changes the scope of what could be considered for a number of things.  And if you do, knowing which CLI or CLIs your proficient with would be good to know, too.

I find Outlook 2016 very confusing.  I really very much appreciate this explanation. 

 

Just fyi, my outlook crashed last week.  I wasn’t receiving e-mails and it only sent every so often.  I got the Microsoft folks to help, and they just made the problem worse.  But miraculously, it seems to have fixed itself.  The only thing I am missing is the contact list that was in my previous version.  I’m afraid to import it, because I don’t want anything to happen, so I’m sort of adding contacts one at a time.  Again, I really appreciate your thorough explanation.

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.

Are you wanting to create your own local database or a database for web content?  You could try Sqlite for your own local database.  It is light weight and you can create your database with windows notepad.  go to www.sqlite.org for reference and details.  If you want to create a database for web content, then try Laragon, www.laragon.org.  It is what is known as a WAMP application, a combination of the Apache web server, the MYSQL RDBMS and php for use on windows.  Cheers.

I had a coworker a few years ago that was really trying to get our company to move to Prezi from PowerPoint. I remember dreading the thought because it sounded so visual. I really don’t’ hear talk of it anymore, but maybe I’m just out of the know now that that colleague left.  It’s supposed to be some more modern alternative to presenting visual information in a meeting or training.
