Hi, Mario. By "enters" Brian means "new line" characters. In other
words, don't press Enter within the message to create a new line or
paragraph.

First and foremost, yes, you can text from e-mail (and there's been lots
already offered in that regard) and, if you get a response, you can
respond in e-mail. The one thing you absolutely must remember, though,
is not to include any "enters" in your reply. Most e-mail providers
now strip these so the whole text message goes through, but some still
do not, and if they don't the first enter in your message will be
treated as the end.

The above being said, if you have a Google Account you can get a Google
Voice phone number (at no cost) and then use the Google Hangouts
website, PC app (if you use the Chrome browser), or Android and iPhone
app to text to your heart's content. There have been occasions where
I've helped someone set up a Google Voice number where none were
available in their home area but that's not a huge deal since you can
pick another nearby, or not so nearby, area that does have numbers
available. When I helped my cousin, who lives in Phoenix, set hers up
we ended up choosing a number in the area code for Newport News, VA.
Signing up for a Google Voice number is done at
https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvoice.google.com&data=02%7C01%7Cmrb620%40hotmail.com%7Cd474d20aa0c44bbbb63f08d516fd3c04%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636440199236416888&sdata=IP%2FNUxxwioud7lEvt0f814gKvty0PvI6Hkbv%2BLpBcd0%3D&reserved=0

) .

You can also text directly from Google Voice, but that's only possible
from the PC. The reason I switched all of my texts and calls to be
redirected to Hangouts is because I can have it running on my PC and
Android phone and both will ring at the same time or give me the "new
message alert" at the same time. While this isn't useful if I'm sitting
at my PC it sure is when I'm out and about with only my Android phone.
Redirecting ones calls and texts from the native Voice setup to Hangouts
is nothing more complicated than checking a checkbox in Hangouts under
the Google Voice heading that reads, "Receive SMS and voicemail in
Hangouts."

If you're a Google user it's worth considering.

Hello,

 

I finally installed JAWS 18 on my home laptop yesterday – a Windows 10 HP machine.  I have it set up to require a password to log into Windows.  I had no trouble with logging in when I first installed JAWS.  However, later in the day I got around to changing the caps lock to be a JAWS key, which is how I have Window Eyes set up.  I then changed the settings to stop having Window Eyes load at start-up and, instead, have JAWS start.   Finally, I had started to update JAWS 18, per an update prompt I got from JAWS.  I didn’t think it was downloading and I thought I’d cancelled it, but later, as I was doing something else, I think I heard JAWS say that it had started the install process for the newest version.  So, I think I’m on the version I received back in July with the WE migration, but it’s possible I’m on a newer release of JAWS 18. 

 

So here’s the problem.  I left to make dinner and when I came back, my screen was locked.  I entered my password, but discovered that the caps lock is on and I cannot get it to release so that I can type in my password with lowercase letters.  When I press the caps lock key, it says nothing, which makes me think it’s acting as the JAWS key.  What do I do?  The thought I had on the way to work today is to shut down the laptop and see if I can get caps lock to function normally before JAWS loads.  Not sure if this will work, but that’s my only other idea.   Is this an issue for others?

True.   I'm focused on the market I live in and many know absolutely nothing about Google Voice.  If it's unavailable where you (for any you) live then it becomes irrelevant.

If you're in the USA and want a "universal texting and calling" platform at no cost the combination of Google Voice and Hangouts is awfully hard to beat (impossible, I'd say).

As in the enter/return that you hit when you want a new line.  Line breaks are often interpreted as "end of message" when sending SMS/text messages via e-mail.

The only two things I've ever seen this key labeled as is Enter, most commonly, and Return, less common and a holdover from typewriter days.

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

After surviving one of the strongest hurricane in history, tornado laden, earthquake called Irma. yes, Irma was worse than a category 5 hurricane at times her speed was unmeasurable. This storm actually registered on the Richter scale leaving massive and tragic destruction to solid concrete homes and people. I was blessed in that my home was not destroyed just some cosmetic damage occurred. I’m now living in Georgia because of medical reasons not being able to get medication on a timely basis. My family and I got out right before hurricane Maria of which completely flooded the island making matters even worse. Then to add even more insult to injury, rainy season has just started and the rain is coming down in buckets and with no trees landslides are causing havoc. However, there is a glimmer of hope, a large amount of assistance has arrived and things are improving slowly but surely.

I’ll say sometimes being blind is a good thing.

 

Thanks for the prayers.

 


Eloquence Behavior Post Updates

Dave Mitchell
 

Hi Everyone,  After the successful installation of the Windows 10 Fall package and the 2018 Beta 3 I have noticed that Eloquence is doing a few new and annoying speech behaviors.  For example, with Alt / Tab the voice dips noticeably at the beginning when voicing the tab destination.  Also when starting to read, the beginning of the sentence is likewise diminished.

Not trying to be a Nattering Naybob of Negativism but wondering if I am alone in this observation.  I’m pondering trying other voices as well but, having done so in the past, I find myself back with Eloquence.

I did a complete restart in hopes of smoothing out these speech quirks but to no good end.

Thanks for your time, Mitch

I'm curious, for somebody who has an iPhone or other smartphone, why would I want to go through so much trouble in terms of looking up somebody's number to find out who their carrier is and then send them a text message via email to which they can't reply? Why not just text them via your iPhone or Android phone since most likely you would want to receive a reply.

Are there any apps that are usable on the laptop or pc for texting phones? i use to use yahoo messenger for this but I have not used it in a long time and do not wish to install it since I tried it one time on my laptop and was not happy with the enterface of the application on my laptop. If anyone has any suggestions how I can do this, please share.

say you want to send a text to your friend's.colleague's cell phone but
you don't know which carrier they use. now you can find out without
having to call them just to ask.

I'm curious, for somebody who has an iPhone or other smartphone, why
would I want to go through so much trouble in terms of looking up
somebody's number to find out who their carrier is and then send them a
text message via email to which they can't reply? Why not just text them
via your iPhone or Android phone since most likely you would want to
receive a reply.

LibreOffice

Brad Martin
 

Hi,


I have had OpenOffice for awhile now, and it basically works--though it can be a little flakey with JAWS. I actually like some of the features of the similar LibreOffice better. Some things, like lists and styles like bold and underline are just easier to locate.


But two things I can't seem to do with either OpenOffice or LibreOffice are:

1. I can't figure out how to read a status line to see what page I'm on, how far down the page I am, etc.


2. If I use Control Down Arrow to select a line of text--or multiple lines--JAWS doesn't read the selected text to let me know what's highlighted, as it would in Word.


I'm running JAWS 15 here. Does anybody have a trick for these two things? If I could make this work, I think I'd really like Libre.


P.S. I did find that the 64-bit version of LibreOffice didn't read at all, but the 32-bit version works quite well for the most part.

Thanks in advance,

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

After surviving one of the strongest hurricane in history, tornado laden, earthquake called Irma. yes, Irma was worse than a category 5 hurricane at times her speed was unmeasurable. This storm actually registered on the Richter scale leaving massive and tragic destruction to solid concrete homes and people. I was blessed in that my home was not destroyed just some cosmetic damage occurred. I’m now living in Georgia because of medical reasons not being able to get medication on a timely basis. My family and I got out right before hurricane Maria of which completely flooded the island making matters even worse. Then to add even more insult to injury, rainy season has just started and the rain is coming down in buckets and with no trees landslides are causing havoc. However, there is a glimmer of hope, a large amount of assistance has arrived and things are improving slowly but surely.

I’ll say sometimes being blind is a good thing.

 

Thanks for the prayers.

Why would you need storage to have your Dropbox app? On mobile devices your Dropbox content is not downloaded tro the deviced unless you specifically tell it to download certain files. All you need is a few Megs to install the Dropbox app which then let's you access your files via WiFi or cellular data.

I was curious since there may be times I need to send a file to someone and need to use my email client to do this.
I don't have drop box on my android since I don't have enough storage on it to run it.
