You do realize "in a big, bold box" means nothing to blind people right?  To us it is just one line like the rest of the page and could be missed. So pointing this out the way you did is just not cool...

I do not see your statements as contrarian Brian. Those are good alternatives, so long as you are accessing the email with an application and not using them through their web site.
I know people who are still using Eudora.
Just for my own knowledge I will install Thunderbird to see the differences.
I have not tried it in at least 4 years, probably more.

If you are used to Outlook, I’d stick with Outlook.

Go with Microsoft 365 if you use more than just outlook.

This will give you Word, Excel, and lots more.

Be sure, if you have a previous office installation that you remove it before installing the new one.

Someone with more technical knowledge could help you make sure your contacts and all stay with you in the new office.

Microsoft accessibility is very helpful with this.

  Right click, use your application key or right mouse button, on Outlook in your start menu. 

Select “More ”

In the sub menu select “Open File Location.

From there you can again right click and choose:

“Sent To”

One of the sub menu options is

“Desktop (Shortcut)

Select that one and the shortcut will  appear.

moderated Re: jaws 2021 sound and speech problems.

 

Have you checked if any Enhancements are turned on, easiest way to get to this is to go to Control Panel > Sounds, then select  your soundcard and go to Properties, here you have several tabs likes this:

General, Levels, Enhancements, AdvancedSpacial Sound

Depending on your card you may or may not have all of these or maybe they are called slightly different things, for me under enhancements I have "Base Boost" and another options "disable all enhancements", if you have this and it is not checked I would try and check it, then tab to Apply and activate it, then OK. If you have a spacial Sound tab also check there and once again I would recommend you check it is set to Off.

Hi,

 

The sound card sounds like it has a sore throat, for want of a better explanation.

No matter what card I select, the result is the same.

Anyway, I think I am going to have to get an engineer out to look at the machine.

Now, adobe dc reader is not scrolling, the web browsers are reading things that are not on screen etc.

I did a complete reinstall of windows on Saturday, but the problems have gotten progressively worse in the last two days.

I am beginning to think,that the mother board is damaged.

The machine is unger warranty with del, so hopefully, they will send someone out, or replace the machine.

 

Thanks for your help.

Can you better describe your voice issues? 

There is some sound card drivers that turn off sound on a regular basis. This causes JAWS to not speak the beginning of each phrase. There was an option in JAWS 2020/2021 to correct this. You need to open up JAWS settings center to the default set and find a setting about sound in there. Let us know if that is not your issue, or if you can't find the setting with my vague description.

Since fully reinstalling windows, my sound card is speaking like it has a throat problem!!

I have tried using the windows default, and the realtec speakers.

Anyway, there is no difference.

The sound card looks like it is changing, but there is no difference in the actual sound.

Two days of resetting the pc!!!

Anyway to get to my point:

When I am moving through items in a folder, jaws is saying “1 of 5” or “2 of 5” etc.

Is there some way to turn this off?

I know I asked this before, but I can’t find my own topics.

 

On this, when I log into the group via the web, can anyone tell me, how to get a list of my own topics?

I can’t seem to find it under my account or something like that.

How can I start a topic online?

Any ideas about the sound cards?

If it makes any difference, jaws wants to add a configuration for “shcore” when I run the settings centre.

I have learned, that this is some sort of “dll” file in windows 10, although why it is using my desktop is a mistery.

 

Sorry if this is rambling.

Hi Klaus,
 
I'm not Bill but, use the right arrow to open when a folder says, Closed, and use left arrow to Close when a folder is, Open.
 
In all actuality the Text Processing folder doesn't need to be opened.
 
Just down arrow to, Speech Verboscity, and right arrow to open.
 
Then, down arrow to, Open Configure Verbocity levels, right arrow to open, and follow the rest of Bill's steps.

Hi, Pat. As far as turning off JAWS verbalizing how many items in a folder or on the desktop,

1. If you want to turn off this behavior for all folders and the desktop,

2. Press JAWS key plus the number six on the numbers row.

3. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the Default JAWS configuration file.

4. If you only want to turn off JAWS verbalizing how many items for the current application, skip step 3.

5. Open Text Processing.

6. Open Speech Verbocity.

7. Open Configure Verbocity levels.

8. Press SPACE on Beginner level.

9. Arrow down to Position Information, and uncheck it.

10. TAB to OK, and press SPACE.

11. TAB to Apply, and press SPACE.

12. TAB to OK, and press SPACE.

13. Now JAWS should no longer verbalize the number of items in folders or the desktop.
