The best defense is a good offense. In other words, blame you or the user
for the manufacture's mistake. It is a classic method. It is also a way
manufactures get out of honoring warranty's, blame the user.

Hello,

Yes that's right. And I had a long and tedious email correspondance with the
support team at Google Drive, during which they did their best trying to
convince me that the problem wasn't their software, but the configuration of
my computer. In turn, I tried to convince them that the client needed at
least labeled buttons, radio buttons and check boxes.
It was long, frustrating, and without results. My last email never received
an answer.

For the time being, I bitterly give up.

A very good evening to all of you!

Re: Outlook 365 web access...

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

There is a setting which makes Outlook Web Access a very good experience, but unfortunately I can’t remember what it is called.

I originally found OWA very easy to use, but then at one point it looked totally different and was a real pain and very inaccessible. I then saw a post where somebody described where to find this setting which switched it back to the old style which is super accessible.

It’s a very clean interface where messages are displayed in a table which for me says it has 8 columns and 22 rows, at the bottom I can click on other pages to display more messages and you can use just the arrows if you have table navigation turned on to go left and right and up and down and read fields like From, Date, Subject etc. Each message has a checkbox in front of it so you could, for example select multiple messages for deletion and so on. If you have thi slayout you should have no problems, if not hopefully somebody who knows how to set this up correctly can provide the steps.

I should say that I also use Outlook 2016 because I also have my personal Outlook.com accounts set up and find it easier to use, but for my business account I could easily get used to using OWA.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Curious if anyone uses the Outlook 365 on the web, I can access work emails at home but it looks very different than the Outlook 2016 I use at work.  Any tips or key commands you can share?

Where we stand with Kodi  right now, is that the developer who made the screen reader, only has it working with the windows platform. However, it's only working on version 16.1 and not 17.3 or 17.4. hopefully in Some time, the developer will make it so it is compatible with version 17.

Hope this helps, Shane.

start Wordpad, press a letter and press the alt key, you should hear
save as the first command in a quick access bar, tab to minimize
something (forgot the actual word)  and if it is checked, press the
enter key to uncheck and close the QAB.
pressing alt should present the ribbon again.

Any other ideas? Thanks in advance, all.

Re: reading bullets

Mario
 

try using the unicode value from the character for the actual word.
for example, for the actual word, type the slash followed by 8226
instead of an actual bullet, and for the hollow bullet, enter whatever
it's value is. you can get the value by navigating to the character and
pressing the numpad 5 three times quickly.
and a blank space for the replacement.

Re: jaws 18 question

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi William,
 
Read the following steps, & if this is what you want then follow them:
If you want nothing said instead of blank in all applications try the
following:
 
1. Open the Settings Center, press, control, shift, + D, to open Settings
Center default all applications.
2. Arrow down to, punctuation closed..., right arrow to open, down arrow to,
customize punctuation...., & press the spacebar to open.  Make sure you
press the spacebar to open & not enter. Pressing enter will close the
Settings Center.
3. Tab to the Advanced button & press spacebar to open.  The first item in
the list will be, blank, so tab 1 time to, edit description.... button, &
press the spacebar to open.  The word, blank, will be in this edit field.
Delete the word, blank, put a space with the spacebar, & press enter.
4. Tab to okay, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar, tab to
apply, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar to save your
changes & close the Settings Center.
 
If you don't want this in all applications, open the desired applications
individually & use the above steps in each application.  HTH
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Stanley,

 

It sounds like your scanner driver was possibly changed.  Try the following:

Go to the advanced menu with the keystroke, Alt + A.  Then press the letter, D, or arrow to, Device Selection, & press enter.  With Device Selection open tab 1 time into a list of available options.  Arrow up / down, & usually your scanner brand + WIA, is the the 1 to try first.  Tab to, Okay, & press enter to save & close.  Now go to, Settings, with the keystroke, Alt + G, & save there as well.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
