a way to make Outlook 2016 and later NOT care about whether you've
actually received or sent a message to a given address/contact before,
but just to show them as you type if what you've typed narrows down to a
few in Contacts.

I will report back once I have some definitive information.  That's
certainly the behavior I'd prefer, but in testing with Outlook 2016 no
name/e-mail address shows up until and unless you've sent something to
it, which kinda defeats the purpose of Contacts on any fresh install of
Outlook.

so, if he types the address, will that create a second entry in the contacts? because that entry for the person already exists.

Hi all,

As of fairly recently, to a span of months, I have noticed a capricious
behaviour, by which outlook, for no apparent reason, seems to be
crossing out addresses it should and used to store to the effect that I
have to ask these people send a fresh message. Is this something others
have experienced, or is it just me?

John,

         You are entirely correct that Outlook and most email clients
will "remember" anyone you've either received and email from or sent an
email to as far as presenting potential addressees as you type in
addition to those you may have stored as contacts.

          I only store contacts for people I know I will likely need to
contact via some means other than email or if it's someone I contact so
seldom that I may not recognize their email address and need to look
that up via a contact.

K-NFB Reader for Windows is reliable.  While not as flexible in terms of different ways to scan I find the K-NFB reader very good and a lot more updated than OpenBook.

Openbook has not been updated in years and I suspect that Freedom will abandon the product as JAWS and other apps, Seeing AI, continue to do well with scanning and OCR.

And given what's mentioned in the example, that's entirely appropriate.  I used Outlook for years and you were never able to shortcut something with first and last initial.  You could have contacts for "Chris Farley," "Chad Fordd," "Cynthia Feeny," and the list goes on and there would be no way for CF to pick the correct one.  The usual method is typing enough of the name to make either a distinctive single choice or to narrow the choices in the dropdown list that automatically prepopulates below the To:, CC:, or BCC:, fields as you enter characters.

Entering "ch" with the above examples would limit the list to two choices, Farley or Ford, and if you added a third character you'd get "Chris Farley" for an 'r', "Chad Fordd" for an 'a', and nothing if you used any other character.

This system works very similarly across a very large number of email clients.  And if you create contact groups, a contact group is treated no differently than a single contact in terms of it being in a list (or made singular) based on what characters have been entered.

Other than openbook nine,  what are some ways to scan print documents and read them?

 

I do have a pearl scanner.

 

I have windows 10 and jaws 2019.

I wonder why app like seeing AI is not available on android. And I think is not available on windows too.

Yes, available through Microsoft store.  Simple installation and uses Microsoft voices.

The other mobile apps you mention are good especially Seeing AI.

I didn't know that there was KNFB for windows.

I'd pay 10 for it, but not a hundred, as was mentioned, when there are good IOS apps.

K-NFB Reader for Windows is reliable.  While not as flexible in terms of different ways to scan I find the K-NFB reader very good and a lot more updated than OpenBook.

Openbook has not been updated in years and I suspect that Freedom will abandon the product as JAWS and other apps, Seeing AI, continue to do well with scanning and OCR.

As someone who has used Openbook since before it had that name, and was on the beta team for years, I'm pretty sure Openbook is dead, and they will just focus on Jaws Convenient OCR. 
I got KNFB reader for Windows when it was $10, and I guess I should revisit it. But, I would not go out and spend $100 for it when Jaws built in OCR is available, or Voice Dream Scanner, or Seeing AI.
Then there is SuperSense, which when on sale for half price, $49, could be worth it especially if they can do columns, which they are working on.
Of course, other than Jaws OCR and KNFB for Windows, these are all iPhone and Android apps.

"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."
"Why, what did she tell you?"
"I don't know, I didn't listen."
