Val, I haven't gotten into this thread yet, but I feel like I have to now. This list is for asking questions to solve problems we all have from time to time. I am not near the computer whiz that Gene or a number of others are on this it. But, I do know this. They are no better than you or I are. We all need help from time to time. You don't have to feel embarrassed to ask for it. you aren't dumb. You aren't stupid. All you want is help solving a problem or sometimes more than one problem. So what. We all need help, so don't be afraid to ask for help. And from time to time as = you get better on the computer, you can help someone with a problem you once had.

Dry your tears. You don't need to cry. We're all her to help each other, and that means you, or me, or anyone else. So there. Smile. Ask away, and someone will help. Jim-----Original Message-----

Inquiry about POS solution called LS One Retail

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Hi,

 

Not sure how many people are into retail and POS solutions, but I thought it won’t hurt to ask. I am looking at a new POS solution for my retail store and came across LS One Retail. I was told that this is pretty strong in Europe and that they are pushing into North America. I am in Canada and have been using Microsoft RMS (Retail Management Solution) which is also known as “Store Operations” since 2006. RMS support and development was discontinued in 2016 and while the software runs pretty well for the most part and will most likely be used by many a business many years from now, I am looking at a replacement.

The most direct replacement is called Retail Management Hero (RMH) and is being distributed by a company called Retail Realm. I was on their beta program early last year and the application was released in June last year, but unfortunately the interface for both the POS module as well as the back office Management module is not very accessible at all. At first it sounded as if the developer/programmer was quite interested in working on accessibility, but of course they had bigger fish to fry in the first year since release, features were added and so on and at this point it would appear that they are not so interested any more in investing a bunch of resources for one lonely little Sieghard whom they would gain as a user.

LS One Retail does have the ability to import the SQL database from RMS as well so hopefully this would result in a pretty easy transition, but the other main issue is that they as well as RMH both work with the Nitrosell eCommerce platform.

My current website/online store is done by Nitrosell since they developed an application which connects my old Microsoft RMS database with the webstore and automatically uploads all items I mark as “Available on the web” and any weborders are downloaded to the POS, it works great. I am not very interested in switching to a different platform/provider for my website at this point since I have invested a fair bit into Nitrosell’s solution and I’m happy with what they do.

If anybody has heard about LS One Retail or even might have any knowledge about its accessibility I’d love to hear about it. I just downloaded the 14-day trail version which apparently is fully functional for 2 weeks so I will of course find out, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt asking on the list about it.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

 


An Excel Question

Joe DiNero
 

Good Evening

 

A quick question on Excel. I am prefacing this by saying that I was a low vision user before so I am not sure you can do this with JAWS. I work sometimes with big spreadsheets where changes at the top have an impact on cells in the bottom and when I am verifying that all formulas are correct I used to use a split screen. Is there a way to navigate back and forth between those screens with a JAWS keystroke? There is a workaround that I can do by making copies of the workbook but if I can use the split screen I would prefer it.

 

Thanks for any help

 

Joe

Hi Val,

There are a couple of easier steps to achieve a faster running PC at start up. Someone did suggest a re install of windows, but if you're running windows 10, which I think from a previous post about something else you said you were you can just reinstall windows without formatting or creating USB drives etc , it’s a really straight forward thing to do using windows 10. The other thing you can do is stop the start up programs running when your PC starts. Again there are a couple of ways to do this and some are quite straight forward. I haven't been following this post so not sure if someone has already suggested these fixes or whether you've sorted the problem yet, but if you haven't let me know and I'd be happy to help

Re: Changing subject line.

If an original  thread’s content has changed from its subject line, then it’s petered out.

Nothing wrong with starting a new thread reflecting this change rather than only changing the subject line on a  dead one only making it harder to sort or filter out or what have you later.

I have an office 365 subscription.

Re; changing subject lines

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

Hi Carolyn,

If someone is using threading, or conversations, just changing the subject line doesn't change how the message is treated.  It will still show up in conversations/threads under the original subject.

 

To truly change a thread/conversation you have to start a brand new message.  That is what I did with this message.

 

For me, I've missed some messages because someone simply changed the subject line on a thread I was no longer interested in, and so I deleted the messages and only found out later, that I could have helped or been helped by the new topic.

 

I hope that comes across as trying to be helpful and not as a criticism.  It is so difficult to communicate without voice tones, etc.  I truly only mean this as a clarifying message.

 

HTH,

Richard

All you do to change a subject is Shift-Tab from the body of the email, once you have pressed Control-R to send out the message. When you Shift-Tab, you will be in the Subject field, and just back space until all of the text on the subject line is removed. Then write in a subject line that is associated with what you are going to say in the email. I just did.

I know just how frustrating it can be. I went from a sighted computer user to a blind one. Talk about being lost or what.

But you will

get it after a time. It just takes time and patience. Try not to stress too much about it. It's just another thing to over come.

Yes i know your right, but when that was put out, it brought out bad memories from my school days where i was badly beaten and bullied because of being slower than the other kids.

This is why i don't have a lot of confidence in myself, because i was always told i was a nothing and a noone!

the Internet is a place where some feel they can say what they want

It gets easier to ignore that kind of thing after you have been in

I hadnt seen Kevin's comment when I wrote that. I see now he didnt mean to be offensive or anything. smile

Hi Randy,

I don't think Kevin meant any disrespect. I think we just all need to realize that some list members, Val is one of them, are not experienced and that applies to Jaws as well as general knowledge about using computers.
Val, if you press Control+R to reply to an email, you can usually press Shift+Tab once (maybe twice in some cases) and that puts you in the subject line.
Now you can delete the entire line and write something different or use normal commands like backspace to delete part of it or even simply just add something at the end.
Having said this, changing the subject line does not change the fact the message is part of the original conversation thread. I think it's OK to just reply, but let's say a topic really changes focus then it's better from time to time to simply start a new email with a subject line that is more descriptive and by doing so start a new thread.
As others have said, don't feel bad, Kevin probably just assumed you know how to modify the subject line so just accept his virtual hug (hope he had a shower this morning) and keep asking away.

Take care,
Sieghard

Hi!

Due to email sent afew moments ago about going on about computer
slowing after start up, I'm sorry to have offended anyone.

I joined this list because i'm a very unexperienced Jaws and computer
user. also, to get help and support not to be pulled up for going on
and on about a subject!

By the way, i don't feel i've been guilty of! If people ask me
questions, then, i'm sure you'll agree,, it would be rude not to reply
to them.

I would like to say at this point, that i appreciate all the kind
people who have done nothing but be willing to help, and to thank them
all very much.

In due of this comment, i hope it will be a while before i need to
post to this list!

In the meantime, i'll look for a support list in the uk, and if i find
one, will unsubscribe from this one.

Thanks once again to all the kind and helpful friends i've made on
this, and i'm sorry i've been a trouble!


Val.
