List,

 

When using Word in previous versions, I was always prompted to save changes.  In 365 if I close out, it does not prompt me to save.  It just automatically saves the changes.  I do not like this feature.  Is there a way to change it?

 

Thanks in advance,

Mark

List Rules

When:
04/01/2022
12:00am to 1:00am
(UTC-04:00) America/New York

View Event

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

Hi, Kevin. You must make sure nothing is selected in your downloads folder. Then there will be a "Group by" category in the context menu of your download folder.

Hi Curtis,

I went into my download folder and pressed control space. I then pressed shift f10. On the menu there is no group by. I’m using the most recent version of windows10 and Jaws2022.

Thanks,

Check to see if you have the Reading pane open. If you do, that is the cause of your problem. Turn off Reding pane. Press Alt, V, P, N. The options come up and can be reviewed with the up or down arrow keys. Select off and press Enter.

Greetings,

 

I have an issue that is annoying me regarding JAWS and Outlook.

I can have unread messages in my box and perhaps not want to read certain ones right then and there. As soon as I arrow through messages to get to specific ones, the unread ones no longer show as unread. Is this a JAWS glitch, or do I need to do something else?

I’m using JAWS 2022 and Office 365.

Thoughts?

I wonder if preview pane is turned on in view settings.
I turn off the preview pane, I don't want any of my messages showing until I enter on them.
This is only a guess.

Hi all,
I have also come to much prefer the default of most recent download at the top of the list. Most of the time when I download something, I want to immediately use it, and it is right there at at the top of the list.

moderated YouTube Transcripts and JFW

Mike Pietruk
 

Overnight, David Goldfield, on his tech-vi@groups.io list forwarded an
item concerning
"How to Get the Transcript of a YouTube Video.

I am wondering if JFW2022 can do this.
If so, can someone translate this into JAWS steps or would a JAWS script
be needed to successfully accomplish this::

From the article, here are the instructions for a PC:
-----
On a desktop or laptop, head on over to YouTube.com in a web browser
such as Google Chrome and open a video to watch.

Select a video.

Next, click the three-dot menu icon underneath the title of the
video.

Select ÿÿShow Transcriptÿÿ from the menu.

Select "Show Transcript."

The transcript box will open and youÿÿll see the captions listed
along with timestamps. You can click a caption to jump to that part
of the video.

Select caption to jump to timestamp.

JM Casey
 

Well, no, malware is potentially dangerous...
Though I'm not sure if meow was asking about that, or something else, like
the Malwarebytes programme...which seems very reliable and has saved my butt
a few times.
They also have pretty extensive presence on the web so I think if they were
doing underhand things they would probably be called out more.
But you all should use whatever software you see fit.

It is absolutely not "conspiracy talk" to say that malware steals information from computers.  It's one of the many classes of malware out there.

And malware is definitely a danger, but to be absolutely clear, Malwarebytes isn't. It has been a respected Malware removal tool for decades now.

I haven't used Malwarebytes actively in a while since most security suites, including Windows Security, have been folding malware scanning and removal into their functionality.

As for me, I simply sort the folder by the date modified. This is, of course, a matter of individual preference—as it should be😀.

Hey.

Of course, it is your choice how you want your folders to be shown on your
system. But not only did I get used to the newer default way of showing
downloads -- I now can't imagine it any other way. It sure makes sense,
especially if you do a lot of downloading 9as I sometimes do), to have them
organised by date, with the newest at the top of the view. I would even like
finer/more specific date organisation now ("a long time ago" is really n ot
very specific is it?)...
