Dean,

Are you sure the attachment is opening in a Microsoft office program outside your email client?  To your point, if I have an attachment open and it’s in protected view, I can hit Insert T to read the title and it will announced that it’s in protected view, then use one of the methods like F6 to get to the bar where I can hit the enable editing button. The reason I ask is that there is an annoying setting in Outlook that will open attachments in “preview”, which is actually showing a preview of the attachment within Outlook and, in my recollection, that won’t read at all.  It’s typically the first context menu option if you right click the attachment and, quite possibly, a default setting in Outlook.  I recall having to make an adjustment in Outlook Options somewhere to disable the preview.

Van Lant, Robin
 

Agree with Brian that the autocomplete doesn’t work as well as it did in the past, or at least in the way I would want it to. I find value in clearing out my autocomplete list at work if I’ve just done a project with a lot or random email addresses in int that I don’t normally use.  I do appreciate that autocomplete doesn’t’ pull in a large list of everyone in the exchange address book, as that would be a really long list for me., but I’m often surprised at how and when it pulls in familiar addresses I use regularly.  If I know an adders I have started to type is in my contacts or company address book, I’ll type a couple letters then use Control K to open the search dialog. It’s similar to the To: button Brian mentioned, but easier for me to access on the fly.  I’m not sure why Microsfot got rid of the old keyboard shortcut of alt period to jump to the To button.

Subject: 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.

Agreed, Brian.  So much is overdone on PowerPoint. I’m sure there could even be more that Prezi does than a fabulous PowerPoint, but I never saw a demo.  What I like is that I can get a copy of the PowerPoint afterward and at least try to read the slides, if needed.  I feared that Prezi would not be as simple to review after the presentation.

Hi,

Sorry so slow in getting back to you but I had a long weekend away from most technology.

Anyway, here’s how to change how JAWS reads graphics. I hope it helps you in the Grover app. It is how I have JAWS set on my PC and as I said I am able to use Grover efficiently.

 

1. Press Insert + j to open the JAWS Window, or press Alt + Tab to cycle through the open windows until you find the JAWS window.

2. Press Insert + v. JAWS opens the verbosity menu.

3. down-arrow about 10 or 11 times to graphics.

4. Press Spacebar to toggle between the choices, "labeled graphics, all, or none". If you want labeled graphics, stop when you hear JAWS say that, then

5. Press Enter to save your settings or Escape to cancel.

 

Much thanks,

StanB

Hi All,

 

I was contacted by a professor about a new course I am beginning using Zoom. He wants me to be able to access google slides and be able to edit within the slides.

 

I do have a gmail account.

 

I have found some information on google documents but not google slides.

 

If anyone has any suggestions of resources to help me learn this, that would be great as I have never used the google suite and have my gmail set up to use in outlook.

I am a person who is totally blind, using JAWS 2020 and Windows 10.

 

I plan to have Zoom open on one device and resources such as google slides and the workbook and texts on a separate laptop with earbud for that computer tucked in my headset and microphone that is connected to the laptop I am using for Zoom.

Thank-you for any advice.

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.
