jaws and winamp

Curt Taubert
 

Hi all, this is Curt. I use Jaws 11. I've been having a problem with my winamp. Every time I turn on winamp, and go to another window, when the next track starts it says, 1, then it gives me part of the title. One of my friends told me to make sure that either always on top or, easy move was not checked but, that doesn't help. Any help is appreciated.

I'll chime in.
Although it seems each individual will have their own tale of pleasure and displeasure with almost any kind of program, is how it seems to feel sometimes.

But be that as it may.
True enough, none of it is rocket science.
But sometimes I do feel like a puny lab rat, up and down my tunnel visions of confusion.
And no matter what, a person just has to claw in and figure stuff out, and pretty soon, most of us get something to work for us.

I have Windows Live Mail on a Netbook using JAWS 12.

I have been using JAWS 13 with Windows Live Mail 2011 for several months now on the Windows Home Premium pc.

While configuring WLM 2011 how you want, and learning the ribbons, it can be dicey at times, I do like it very well. I like very much how the conversations are gathered together. Better than that works in the earlier WLM for some reason. And that makes it pretty handy when going through voluminous emails from discussion groups. (So, be sure and change your Subject Headers everyone!) <g>

If anyone knows how to make the email accounts synchronize well between computers running those 2 different email programs, I'm currently trying to figure that out.

My Netbook with WLM had been off for a month, and all the emails that had been delivered and were already read on the machine WLM 2011, are all still showing as unread. This makes it like a proverbial Ground Hog Day, if you know what I mean.

I have been hearing a lot about Thunderbird from some folks. I would like to learn it sometime.

I did use Outlook 2003 for quite a long time.
And it was back when something called the Outlook Connector was used.
I also hate to have to spend a lot of money on stuff. But if enough chances came my way, I might again try Outlook 2010.


Thanks.

I decided to try Windows Live Mail 2011 and I like it more than I thought I
would. It has some similarities to Outlook Express. You cannot use
first-letter navigation to go from folder to folder, but I can get around
quickly enough to suit me with the arrow keys. It has a spell checker and
the message rules and the options dialog are about like those in Outlook
Express. The main reason I tried it was because it is free. I did not want
to purchase the Microsoft Office suite to get Outlook 2010 unless I found
that I did not like WLM 2011. Outlook sounds like it has more bells and
whistles than I need to just do casual email.

I can tell you that on November 17 I started using Windows 7 with Windows Live mail and very soon afterwards WLM started crashing. It got to the point that I couldn't get it to open at all. I asked for help on this list and after trying numerous things someone sent me an executable for Thunderbird. I had to learn how to use it, of course, and there are a few things about it that I would prefer to have configured otherwise, but it has been working fine and is accessible.

Re: windows live mail or Microsoft outlook 2007 mail with jaws 13 andwindows 7

Dave...
 

John,

As Ann indicates, Outlook only comes with a pro version of Office, so it's
an add-on cost to consider.

When I started using Windows 7 I wasn't happy wit Windows Live Mail after
using Outlook Express for years, so I installed Windows Mail (the Vista
version) on Windows 7, which is a much closer client to how OE operated.
However it does require tweaking to make it work.

There is a blog that talks about the overall considerations

http://www.webdevelopersnotes.com/blog/get-windows-mail-windows-7/

and I have a full set of the text files and registry mod files from an
article called "Ryans Windows Mail Tweak" that I used. If you're interested
after reading the blog and the text below, write me off-list and I'll send
you a zip file with all the pieces. My E-Mail is:

dgcarlson@sbcglobal.net

Here's the text instructions for the Windows Mail Tweak...

Ryan's Windows Mail Tweak

I am a big fan of the Microsoft windows7 operating system, but I feel
one of its
weaknesses is its email client Windows Live mail. Many others who have used
Windows Live
Mail (WLM) have also conveyed problems with instability resulting in
spontaneous email
client crashes, interface difficulties, and overall poor performance. Though
Microsoft has
released a WLM 2011 upgrade, users have conveyed similar issues still
remain.

Windows Mail was the native email client on the Windows Vista
operating system and
the predecessor to Windows Live mail. After installing Windows Mail on my
Windows7
operating system I have found it exhibits incredible stability in day to day
performance. As
a screen reader user I have found Windows Mail very easy to use as the
interface is almost
identical to my much adored Outlook Express. In short, Windows Mail simply
works!

Below you will find my step-by-step tutorial for configuring your
Windows7 computer
to begin using Windows Mail. To complete this task you will have to make
changes to the
Windows7 registry, but if you carefully follow the instructions below you
should not have
any problems. To further insure the integrity and stability of the Windows7
operating
system, it is also of the highest importance you do not take any shortcuts
in this tutorial.

If you feel you're a computer whiz and following instructions does not apply
to you, please
seriously consider skipping this tutorial altogether and maybe seek out a
different
solution.

To make completion of this tutorial a bit easier, I suggest you
consider using an audio
recorder such as the Victor Reader Stream to record the tutorial line by
line. When
executing each of the steps below, in the event you may need to review
information, you
can quickly rewind the audio rather than repeatedly switching back and forth
between
windows. Performing this step is of course entirely up to you, but for a
procedure like this
I would not want to take any chances I may forget a step.

Important! Very! Important!
I have gone out of my way to assure accuracy of this information but
computers are
finiky and anything can happen. By taking even the slightest action based on
any of the
information presented below, you are taking matters into your own hands and
cannot
hold me responsible for your errors or random mishaps resulting from this
procedure.
Only attempt this procedure if you are confident you can successfully
complete the entire
process. I will also inform you that you will need to use an Administrator
account to
complete this tutorial. Furthermore, you will want to read through this
tutorial in its
entirety to compare your technical skills with the demands of this
procedure. This is not a
very demanding task but it does require a bit of technical familiarity with
the Windows
operating system.

This tutorial consists of two parts. The first part is the actual
procedure of configuring
the Windows7 operating system to enable the use of Windows Mail. The second
part of this
tutorial consists of a collection of mini-tutorials for configuring Windows
Mail accounts
and configuring maximum accessibility. This procedure can be completed on
Windows7 32
-bit and 64-bit operating systems. I have primarily performed this procedure
on Windos7
Home Premium operating systems, and others have reported success on the
professional
and related versions of windows7.

It is very important you determine the version of Windows7 you are
using; especially
when it comes to completing step #16 below. To do so, press the Windows key
+ the
pause/break key. The Pause/Break key is the third key in the three-pack of
keys at the very
top right hand corner of a standard 104-key keyboard. Use your screen reader's
mouse
cursor key such as the JAWS cursor to read this entire screen from top to
bottom. About 15
lines from the top of the screen you will find the text verifying the
version of Windows you
are using (E.G.: System type: 64-bit Operating System). Press Alt + F4 to
close the System
properties window.

Note: To quickly review the various sections of this tutorial simply use
your word
processor's find feature to search for the following characters: `1 or `2.
The grave accent
key is the key right under the escape key on a standard keyboard. Search for
`1 to find
major sections of this tutorial and search for `2 to locate the individual
tutorials.

`1Part 1: Windows Mail on Windows7

`2To tweak Windows7 to use Windows Mail:
1. Create an image of your hard drive in the event something goes horribly
wrong--though

nothing should go wrong. If you do not have a means of creating an image of
your hard

drive then use System Restore to create a Restore Point so you can return to
a good

working version of your Windows7 OS. Do the following to create a restore
point:
A. Press the Windows key to go to the Start menu search box and type the
following and

press the enter key: Create a restore point.
B. Tab about 5 times or until you get to the following item and press the
enter key:

Create....
C. Type a descriptive name such as "BeforeWindowsMailTweak" and press the
enter key.

Wait a few seconds for the process to complete.
D. Follow any remaining dialogues and when finished press Alt + F4 to close
the System

Protection utility.

2. If you are currently using Windows Live Mail or a similar email client
make sure you

backup all of your email-related files and folders. To determine where these
folders are

located do the following:
A. In Windows Live Mail press Alt + letter T for Tools then up arrow and
press enter on

Options.
B. Press Control + Shift + the Tab key once to get to the "Advanced tab."
Tab to

Maintenance... and press enter.
C. In the Maintenance dialog box tab to the following option and press
enter: Store

Folder....
D. Tab to the following edit field: Your personal message store is located
in the following

folder. You can press the home key then press Shift + the End key to select
the entire path.

Note: It is the NumPad end key you should press and not the letter N.
E. You are finished with your email client so close any open dialogues.
F. Press the Windows key to go to the Start menu search box and paste the
path you just

copied into this edit field then press enter.
G. When your email client's program files folder opens you can press the
backspace key to

highlight this specific folder.
H. Press Control + letter C to copy this folder and paste it in a safe
storage location such

as an external hard drive. It may take a few minutes to copy this folder
since it will

probably contain your entire collection of email messages.
Note: You can also choose to export your WLM email message stores. While
Windows Live

Mail is open, press Alt + letter F to go to the file menu then down arrow
and press enter on

Export. An export wizard will launch. Use your screen reader's mouse cursor
keys such as

the JAWS cursor key to read all screens.

3. In order to complete this tutorial you must have access to all windows
system and

hidden files. To insure this you will have to make some changes within
Windows's Folder

Options.
A. Press the Windows key to go to the Start menu search box and type the
following and

press enter: Folder options.
B. Press Control + the Tab key once.
C. Tab once then press the Home key to highlight the first item which
happens to be Files

and Folders. Down arrow through this list and press the spacebar to make
sure the

following items are modified in the manner specified here:
Show hidden files, folders, and drives -ON
Hide empty drives in the Computer folder-OFF
Hide extensions for known file types-OFF
Hide protected operating system files-OFF
D. After you have made these modifications tab to Apply and press enter. Tab
to Ok and

press enter.
Note: when you complete this entire tutorial make sure you repeat this
process and return

these settings back to their previous state.

4. After all hidden operating system files and folders are set to show via
Folder options,

you will now want to backup the original Windows Mail folder contained
within C:

\Program files. The following is the exact path of the folder you should
backup:
"C:\Program Files\Windows Mail"
Note: This is the Windows mail folder you will be modifying, which is why it
is important it

is backed up in its pristine form.
Note: For Windows7 64-bit users, make sure you do not accidentally open the
c:\Program

Files (X86) folder--you do not want to open this folder at all.

5. Making some modifications to the Windows7 registry is at the heart of
this tutorial so it

is important we create a backup of the registry.
A. Press Windows key + letter R to launch the Run dialogue. Type the
following and press

enter: regedit
B. When the Registry editor opens press the home key.
C. Press Alt + letter F to open the file menu. Down arrow to Export.... and
press enter.
D. Give this registry backup a name such as "Before WMTweak."
E. You can press the Tab key to navigate the remainder of this dialogue box.
When you

come to the relevant option, make sure you are exporting "all" of the
registry settings.

Also be mindful of where the registry backup will be saved--it will most
likely be the

Documents folder. When you are confident you have made the correct
configurations tab

to Save and press enter. Wait a few seconds for the process to complete.
E. Press Alt + F4 to close the Registry editor.

6. At this point you should insure all extraneous applications and open
windows are

closed.

7. Press enter on the DropBox link below to download the following zipped
file: Ryan's

Windows Mail Tweak.zip. This zipped archive has a collection of 6 subfolders
and a copy of

this tutorial. Each of these subfolders contains a single registry file.
These registry files

are easily identifiable as they have the .REG extension.
Here is the download link for the zipped archive:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10556184/Ryan%27s%20Windows%20Mail%20Tweak.zip

8. The file you downloaded in the previous step is a zipped file so you must
extract the

files to access them. While the zipped file is highlighted, press the
Windows Context menu

key or press Shift + F10 and down arrow and press enter on the Extract
all... option. You

will be presented with a prompt asking you where you want to unzip the
files. Press enter

to extract a copy of the zipped folder to your current location. You will
want to place the

extracted folder in a location where the folder will be easily accessible
such as your C:\

drive.
Note: What I am referring to as the Windows Context menu key is also known
as the

Windows Applications key or Shift + F10. These various terms and different
keyboard

commands accomplish the same goal; they simulate a right click.

9. Within the main folder of the zipped archive you extracted in the
previous step, look for

the following folder: "Take Ownership Installation." Inside this folder will
be a single file:

Take Ownership.reg. This registry file will allow an administrator to
quickly take

ownership of files for which access is normally denied by the Windows
operating system.

Press enter on this .reg file. You should get the following prompt:
"Registry editor dialogue
Adding information can unintentionally change or delete values and cause
components to

stop working correctly. If you do not trust the source of this information
at C:\[path of

registry file] do not add it to the registry. Are you sure you want to
continue?
Yes button. To activate press space bar or Alt + Y."

You can tab to Yes and press enter. You should get the following
confirmation message:

"Registry editor dialogue
The keys and values contained in C:\[path of registry file] have been
successfully added to

the registry.
Ok button"

Press enter on the Ok button to close this message.

10. Take a moment to verify that the "Take Ownership" registry file has been
installed

properly and has been incorporated into your Windows context menu. Do this
by going to

Windows Explorer and pressing the Windows context menu key or Shift + F10 on
any file.

Down arrow through the options and one of these choices should be: Take
Ownership.

Press escape to close the Windows context menu.

11. Once again open the Ryan's Windows Mail Tweak folder you downloaded from

DropBox. Within this parent folder Arrow down to the following subfolder and
press enter:

WinMailEdit. Press enter on the single registry file: WinMailEdit.reg. You
will get the same

registry editor dialogue message in Step #9 above. Press enter on the Yes
button. Press

enter on the associated Ok button.

12. You must now remove some attributes of the winmail.exe file using the
Run dialogue.

The "Attrib" command below is used to display, set, or remove one or more of
the four

attributes (read-only, archive, system, and hidden) that can be assigned to
files and

directories. This command is typically used to remove read-only, hidden, and
system

attributes so a file can be moved or deleted or to set them so that it
can't. For our

purposes the command will prevent possible conflicts with Windows updates
and will

prevent unnecessarily running the system file check command: "sfc /scannow."
You will

implement the disabling of attributes for the specific file of interest in
the next step below.

For now, select the next single line of text and copy it to your clipboard
by using the

Control + letter C keyboard command.

attrib -s -h "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe"

Launch the Run dialogue by pressing Windows key + letter R. If the Run
dialogue does not

present itself go to the start menu search box and type the following and
press the enter

key: run. Press Control + Letter V to paste the line of text you just copied
into this run

dialogue. Use your say line command to confirm that you definitely copied
and pasted the

correct line of text. Press the enter key to complete this procedure. Do not
worry if after 10

seconds or so you do not get a confirmation message whatsoever or if your
computer did

not respond in any way. Simply press Alt + Tab if necessary to switch tasks
and go to the

next step.

13. Follow this path to open the correct Windows Mail folder. Please pay
very close

attention to every segment of this path.: C:\Program files\Windows Mail.
Here it is again in

slow motion:
C:\
Program Files\
Windows Mail\
Note: Windows7 64-bit users, I remind you, make sure you completely ignore
the following

folder: Program Files (X86). Do not open this folder at all.

14. Down arrow to the following file: msoe.dll.
Note: Screen readers do not always read files as one would like, so I will
take this single

opportunity to rewrite the name of the file in all caps to insure you focus
on and highlight

the correct file. The correct file to be modified is named: MSOE.dll. You
can also press F2

on the file and read the name of the file character by character. Press the
escape key to

cancel the F2 rename command.

15. With the msoe.dll file selected, press your Windows context menu key
(Shift + F10) and

down arrow to "Take Ownership" and hit the enter key. You will not receive a
confirmation

message at all but be assured the process has definitely taken place. You
have now taken

ownership of MSOE.dll.

16. Follow instruction set A or B below for your specific 32-bit version or
for 64-bit version

of windows7 respectively.

(A) Instructions for Windows7 32-bit
If you are using Windows7 32-bit go to the Ryan's Windows Mail Tweak folder
you

downloaded and open the following subfolder: "Windows Mail 32 bit version of
msoe.dll."

Press Control + letter C to copy the single file named: msoe.dll. Press Alt
+ Tab to return

focus to the c:\Program files\Windows Mail folder and use Control + letter V
to paste the

file inside this folder. You will be presented with a prompt informing you
that a file with

the same name already exists in this location. Tab once to the "Copy and
Replace button"

and press enter. You will not be presented with any other prompts so move on
to the next

step as you've already completed the most difficult part of this tutorial.

(B) Instructions for Windows7 64-bit
If you are using Windows7 64-bit go to the Ryan's Windows Mail Tweak folder
you

downloaded and open the following subfolder: "Windows Mail 64 bit version of
msoe.dll."

Press Control + letter C to copy the single file named: msoe.dll. Press Alt
+ Tab to return

focus to the c:\Program files\Windows Mail folder and use Control + letter V
to paste the

file inside this folder. You will be presented with a prompt informing you
that a file with

the same name already exists in this location. Tab once to the "Copy and
Replace button"

and press enter. You will not be presented with any other prompts so go on
to the next

step because you have already completed the most difficult part of this
tutorial.

17. Close the Windows Mail folder by pressing Alt + F4.

18. Go into the Ryan's Windows Mail Tweak parent folder and open the
following

subfolder: "Set WinMailDefault." Press enter on the single registry file:
Set

WinMailDefault.reg. You will get the same registry editor confirmation
message described

in step #9 above. The yes button should be highlighted so press enter on it.
Press enter on

the accompanying Ok button.

`1Configuring Windows Mail to Open All .EML Files

To be on the safe side, you will want to manually associate all email files
containing the

.EML file extension to open with Windows Mail. After completing these steps
below

Windows Mail should behave just as if it were the default email client
installed with

Windows7. In other words, when you press enter on a file which has the .EML
file extension,

Windows mail will open this file rather than your previous email client.

`2To associate .EML files with Windows Mail:
1. Press the Windows key to go to the Start menu search box and type the

following then press enter: default programs.
2. Tab four times or until you reach the following item and press the enter
key: Set your

default programs.
3. Tab twice or until you get to a list view of programs. Press the letter W
repeatedly or

down arrow through this entire list until you find Windows Mail.
Note: Please be very careful you do not select Windows Live Mail.
4. Tab to the following item and press enter: Choose defaults for this
program.
5. Tab once or until you get to the Select all checkbox. Press spacebar on
this checkbox to

enable it.
6. Tab to the Save button and press enter. Tab to Ok and press enter.
7. close any remaining open windows by pressing Alt + F4.

`1Placing Windows Mail on the Start menu

Jump Lists are used extensively in Windows7. A Jump List is like a small
recently opened

files menu. If you press the Windows key and down arrow through your start
menu and

find you have a Windows Live Mail submenu, this is an example of a Jump
List. You will

want to unpin the WLM Jump List from the Start menu since you will no longer
have any

use for it. You will be replacing this with a Windows Mail Jump List which
will give you

quick access to many of your recently saved email messages. Keep in mind it
won't open

all previously read email messages, it will only open email messages you
have saved to

your hard drive.

`2To create a Windows Mail Jump List:
1. You will first need to unpin the Windows Live Mail Jump List from your
Start menu. To

accomplish this simply press the Windows key and down arrow until you find
the Windows

Live mail submenu.
2. Press your Windows context menu key and down arrow to the following item
and press

enter: Remove from this list.
3. After pressing the escape key a couple of times to close any unwanted
windows, press

the Windows key and down arrow through the entire Start menu to verify the
Windows Live

Mail submenu entry is not present. If you do not find it then you have
successfully

removed it.
4. We will now add a similar Windows Mail submenu Jump List to the Start
menu. Find your

way to the following folder:
C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\
Note: For Windows7 64-bit users, make sure you do not mistakenly open the
Program files

(X86) folder.
4. In this Windows Mail folder locate the following file which will probably
be the last file

in this folder: WinMail.exe. Review the file name and verify you have
highlighted the

correct file.
5. Press the Windows Context menu key (Or Shift + F10) and down arrow to the
following

item and press enter: Pin to Start menu.
6. Press the Windows key and down arrow until you locate the following item:
Windows

Mail submenu. If you find this item you have successfully completed this
part of the

tutorial.
7. Open this Windows Mail Jump List by using the right arrow key, and if you
down arrow

you will most likely find a list of recently saved email messages. You can
press enter on

any of these messages to read them.
Note: at times JAWS does not read Start menu submenus properly, so you may
have to

unload JAWS by pressing Insert + F4 then reload it again by pressing your
JAWS hotkey.
8. To place this Windows Mail Jump List at the top of the Start menu use
your Screen

reader's Drag and Drop command. Using JAWS you would highlight the Windows
Mail

submenu entry, press Control + Insert + Numpad slash (/), up arrow to a nice
convenient

location on the Start menu, and hit the JAWS Drag and Drop command once
again. You

should be given a confirmation message that the process has completed
successfully.
Note: if you open the Windows Mail Jump List and attempt to open a saved
email message

which has recently been deleted, you will be presented with the following
message:

"Problem with Shortcut
The item X that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this
shortcut will no

longer work properly.
Do you want to delete this shortcut?
Yes No."

I simply hit letter N for No and essentially ignore this message as I
already know I have

deleted the message.

`1Creating a Windows Mail Shortcut on the Desktop

The final step in Part 1 of this tutorial is to create a shortcut and attach
a hotkey for the

purpose of quickly launching Windows Mail

`2To create a Windows Mail Desktop shortcut:
1. Go to the run dialogue and type the following path then press enter:
c:\program files

\windows mail\
Note: you can simply copy and paste the path into the Run dialogue and press
enter.
2. Find the following file (it will probably be at the bottom of this
folder): WinMail.exe.
3. Press the Windows Context menu key (or press Shift F10). Down arrow to
the following

item and press enter: Send to submenu. Down arrow to the following item and
press enter:

Desktop create shortcut.
4. Press Windows key + letter D to be taken to the Desktop. Press the letter
W until you find

the Windows Mail shortcut you just created. Press Alt + the enter key on
this icon to open

its Properties dialogue box. Tab twice or until you reach the edit field
where you can type

your desired hotkey. After entering your desired hotkey tab once and down
arrow to

maximize. Tab to Apply and press enter. Tab through this dialogue once again
to insure

your settings are correct then press enter on Ok.
5. Test your hotkey.
6. You can rename the desktop shortcut by highlighting it and pressing F2.
When you are

finished typing a new name for your shortcut press enter.
7. In order to prevent the accidental launch of your previous email client,
be sure you

review the shortcut properties of your previous email application as well as
its reference

within the All Programs submenu and remove any attached hotkey. Desktop
icons and

entries in the All Programs menu are common locations used to configure
hotkeys.

You have now completed the entire process of configuring Windows7 to begin
using

Windows mail. Enjoy your new incredibly stable, accessible, and responsive
Email client!

`1Part 2: Creating Accounts - Accessibility - Gmail - Message Rules

Now that Windows Mail is properly installed on your computer the sections
below will

walk you through making a few more modifications. You will launch Windows
Mail for the

first time and create your default email account. You will make some
accessibility related

configurations. You will configure Windows Mail to send and receive messages
from your

Google Gmail account. Finally, you will create message rules to help you
manage your

email.

`2To configure the default email account:
1. Press Windows key + letter D to go to the Desktop.
2. Press the letter W until you find Windows Mail. Press enter on this item.
Since this will be

the first time running Windows Mail wait a few seconds for the new account
wizard to

launch.
Note: using your screen reader's mouse cursor such as the JAWS cursor to
read from top to

bottom each of the following screens will be very useful in determining the
information

requested of you.
3. When the new account wizard finally launches you will be presented with
the following

prompt: Display name. This is an edit field where you can type in the name
other people

will see when you send them email messages. You can type in your name such
as John Doe

as it is not necessary to type in your formal email address. After you have
typed your name

tab to Next and press enter.
4. On the second screen of this wizard you will be placed on an edit field
where you must

enter your full formal email address as given to you by your ISP (E.G.:
RyanX@charter.com).

When you finish entering your name tab to Next and press enter.
5. On the third screen of this wizard you will be asked to set up your email
servers. Press

Shift + Tab once to be placed on the Incoming Email Server Type combo box.
This combo

box will have two choices: POP3 or SMTP. Use the Up arrow or down arrow to
make your

selection. A POP3 account is primarily used if you want all your email
downloaded from

your ISP's servers to your computer in order to read and do as you wish. If
you decide to

use a POP3 account, once you download your email it will no longer exist on
your ISP's

servers. The second option is an IMap account which will also download your
email to

your computer, but it has the added advantage of keeping a copy of your
email messages

on your ISP's servers for viewing with a browser in the event you are away
from home and

would like to read your Gmail from a friend's house or from school. The
following settings

are used to create a POP3 email account but IMap settings are very similar.
When entering

the information below press the tab key to move from edit field to edit
field. As you will

undoubtedly notice, the information entered in these edit fields is specific
to Charter

email. The information you will need to enter for your account will of
course vary.
Note: If you are not sure of the required information you must enter in each
of these edit

fields call your internet service provider's technical support line or
search for the

information on your ISP's Technical Support webpage.

In the Incoming mail server edit field type the following: pop.charter.net

In the Outgoing Email Server Name edit field type the following:
smtp.charter.net

Outgoing server requires authentication (checkbox not checked).
Note: Leave this setting unchecked unless specifically instructed by your
email provider to

do otherwise.

Tab through all these settings once again to confirm they are correct. When
you are

finished tab to Next and press enter.

6. On this fourth screen you will be asked to enter your internet mail log
on information.,

Your email user name (RyanX) will most likely be entered automatically so do
not change

it. Press tab and enter your password. Press tab again and hit the spacebar
to check the

following checkbox: Remember password. Tab to Next and press enter.
7. You have now come to the final screen in this new account wizard. This
screen is

essentially a screen congratulating you on having successfully entered all
the information

required to setup your default email account. You will be placed on a
checked checkbox

asking you if you would like your email downloaded after pressing enter on
the Finish

button. Leave this checkbox alone. Tab to the Finish button and press enter.
Tab to the

Close button and press enter.
8. Once the previous screen closes you will be placed in your Inbox. You
will find you have

a single email message welcoming you to Windows Mail. Press enter to read
this message,

and press escape to close it.
9. At this point you may find that your email is being downloaded, but if
you do not then

try pressing F5 or Control + letter M. these hotkeys will check for new
email. After pressing

this hotkey you may also be presented with a message requesting your ISP
user name.

Enter your full email address. You will also be asked to enter your password
so do so.

Check the Remember my credentials checkbox. Tab to Ok and press enter.
10. If all is well you should hear the progress of your email as it is being
downloaded. If

you are a JAWS user you can check the progress of the download by pressing
Insert + the

NumPad page down key.
11. If you do not receive any email as might be the case with a new email
account, and if

you want to test that your email account is configured properly, try sending
yourself an

email message.
12. If the email message you sent yourself cannot be sent or does not arrive
in your inbox

within a minute or two it is time to do some troubleshooting!

`1Windows Mail Accessibility Configurations

For those of you who have used Outlook Express in the past, the following
accessibility

related modifications will be very familiar to you. You will make changes to
the Layout

within the View menu, and you will make many modifications within the
Tools/Options

multipage dialogue box.

`2To modify the Windows Mail Layout:
1. Press Alt + letter V to go to the View menu.
2. Press the letter L to go to Layout....
3. The first item will be the Folder bar. Make sure this is not checked. If
it is checked press

the spacebar to uncheck this item.
4. Press the tab key to move through the next few items on this screen. The
last item will

probably be Show Preview Pane. Press spacebar to uncheck this item.
5. Tab to Apply and press enter. Tab to Ok and press enter.

`2To complete View menu modifications:
1. Press Alt + letter V to open the View menu.
2. The first option is the Current View submenu. Press enter on this item.
The default

setting is Show all messages. I choose to hide my read messages, so I down
arrow once to

the Hide read messages option and press enter. The menu will close and you
will be placed

back in your inbox. I hide all of my read messages because when new messages
arrive in

my inbox they are at times mixed in with previously read messages. This
makes it difficult

for me to quickly read through my email. If you do not need nor like this
setting simply

repeat this process and select the Show all messages option.
3. Press the letter V to open the View menu once again. Down arrow to the
Sort by

submenu and press enter. These settings will help you configure how your
messages are

displayed. Press down arrow to move through the available settings. Press

or uncheck any of these settings--the menu will then close. You will want to
experiment

with these items to find the settings that best meet your needs. The setting
I suggest you

seriously consider is Sort Ascending. This item will change the order of
your messages to

place the oldest messages at the top of the list and the newest messages at
the bottom of

the list. In day to day use this insures you read messages in the order they
arrived in your

inbox

The following configurations will help you customize how your messages are
sent,

received, composed, etc.

`2To configure Windows Mail Options:
1. Press Alt + letter T for Tools then press letter O for Options.
2. You will be placed on the General Tab of this multi-page dialogue box.
You are free to

configure the following Windows Mail settings as you wish, but I have found
the following

specific settings provide me great ease of use and great screen reader
accessibility.
Note: press the spacebar to check and uncheck the settings below.

General tab settings:
Notify me if there are any new newsgroups. (I unchecked this)
Use newsgroup message rating features. (I unchecked this)

You can now tab to Apply and press enter. Press Control + Tab to move to the
Receipts tab.

Receipts tab settings:
Note: I did not modify any of these settings. Press Control + Tab to move to
the Send tab.

Send tab settings:
Most of the default Send tab settings are set just fine and do not require
modification. The

one change I suggest you seriously consider is the sending and receiving of
email

messages in plain text rather than in HTML. To do so do the following:
A. Press the tab key about six times or until you find the following
setting: Reply to

messages using the format in which they were sent. Press the spacebar to
Uncheck this

checkbox.
B. Press the Tab key twice or until you find the first radio button. Press
down arrow to

select Plain text.
C. Press the tab key about three times or until you find the next radio
button. Press down

arrow to select Plain text.
D. Tab to Apply and press the spacebar. Press Control + Tab to move to the
Compose tab.
Note: after these plain text modifications are made you will still have
the ability to

activate a link by pressing enter on the link contained within the email
message.

Compose tab settings:
Note: I did not modify any of these settings. Press Control + Tab to move to
the Signature

tab.

Signature tab settings:
Note: I did not modify any of these settings. Press Control + Tab to move to
the Spelling

tab.

You can now tab to Apply and press enter. Press Control + Tab to move to the
Security tab.

Security tab settings:
Note: I did not modify any of these settings. Press Control + Tab to move to
the Connection

tab.

Connection tab settings:
Note: I did not modify any of these settings. Press Control + Tab to move to
the Advanced

tab.

Advanced settings tab:
There is only one item of significance here: Maintenance.... Press the tab
key until you

locate this item and press enter. This dialogue box can be used to configure
many

different email related maintenance tools. Press the tab key to move through
these items

and decide which settings are important to you. The following are two
important settings:
A. Empty messages from the 'Deleted Items' folder on exit. I often quickly
read through my

messages and press the delete key to delete messages I want to temporarily
save in the

deleted items folder. For messages I want to permanently delete, while the
messages are

highlighted, I simply press Shift + Delete key and they are gone for good.
This process

affords me a bit of insurance that I did not permanently delete a message
that may prove

to be useful in the near future. Ultimately I either move messages in the
deleted items

folder to other folders for permanent storage, or I select all the messages
and permanently

delete them by pressing Shift + Delete key as I have described above. If you
have chosen to

modify this setting simply tab to Close and press enter. Tab to Ok and press
enter.
B. Store folder.... Pressing enter on this item will show you where your
email related folders

are stored. Once this dialogue opens you need only tab twice or until you
come to an edit

field that contains the path to your message stores. Note that in this
dialogue box you can

change the default location where your messages are stored. This is
beneficial if you want

your messages to be stored on a different partition than the partition that
holds your

operating system. Press Ok or escape to close this dialogue box. Press close
or escape on

the Maintenance dialogue box. Press Ok or escape on the Advanced tab
dialogue box.

Congratulations! You have now completed making all of your Windows Mail
accessibility

Configurations! You should now find Windows Mail incredibly easy to use and
almost

completely indistinguishable from Outlook Express.

or press the first few letters of your folder.

You will now create a message rule that will tell Windows Mail to redirect
any new email

messages from the W7Starters list to the W7Starter Messages folder.

`2To create a new message rule:
1. Press alt + letter T to open the Tools menu then down arrow and press
enter on the

Message rules submenu.

4. You must first specify conditions for your rule. You will be presented
with a list view

containing twelve possible conditions. Press down arrow to review your
choices. These

options can be checked and unchecked with a press of the spacebar. You can
also check

more than one condition. It is very important to keep in mind that when it
comes time to

checking one of these options, JAWS will not give you any feedback as to
whether an item

has been checked or not. JAWS will only repeat the item. Nevertheless, be
assured that in

fact the selection has been made and you can tab to the next setting. For
the purposes of

this tutorial, down arrow and select the following condition: Where the
Subject line

contains specific words. Press the spacebar on this item, and you should
hear the

condition being repeated.
5. Tab once and you will be placed on the list view containing possible
actions to be

associated with your previous condition. Since you have already configured
the message

rule to take action based on the subject line of an email message, you will
now dictate

what that action should be. For your purpose, you want to redirect new
W7Starter list

messages away from your Inbox and into the W7Starter Messages folder. All
messages

from the W7Starter's list have an identifying set of characters in their
subject line

(W7Starter), so you will use this information to make your configurations.

Subject line

contains W7Starter. You will have to repeat a similar process for line #3.
Down arrow to

the following line: Move it to the specified folder. Once again, press the
Home key. Move

the cursor to the second word by using your screen reader's NextWord
command. Press the

with a

single left click command which can be executed by pressing the NumPad slash
(/) key.

You will be placed on the Local folders tree view. Press right arrow to open
this tree view

then down arrow through your email folders until you locate the W7Starter
Messages

folder. Tab to Ok and press enter. You will be returned to the rule
description edit field.

Press enter on

the Yes button. Tab to Ok and press enter.
Note: you must tab to Ok and press enter or your message rule will not be
removed.

`1Indexing Your Windows Mail Messages

As a result of this tutorial, Windows Mail is now an integral part of
Windows7, but

Windows7 is clueless of this fact. This can put you at a significant
disadvantage as you will

not be able to run a search for email messages saved or created after
windows Mail was

revived. .Windows search Index to the rescue! The search index is a method
used by

Windows to track newly created files and subsequent changes made to these
files. The

Index includes many file types, but it can also be easily configured to
index files and

folders not indexed by default. The following tutorial will walk you through
enlightening

Windows7 about it's new email client and associated files. After completing
the following

tutorial you will be able to use the Start menu search box to find any email
message saved

within your previous email client's message stores as well as your new
Windows Mail

message stores.

`2To add Windows Mail to the Search Index:
1. Press the Windows key to go to the Start menu search box and type the
following and hit

enter: indexing options.
2. Tab to Modify and press enter.
Note: You may be presented with the following message:

"Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot
fulfill the

messaging request. Please run Microsoft Office Outlook and set it as the
default mail

client.
OK."

You can simply press escape to close this message. You will have to press
Alt + Tab to

return focus to the Indexing options dialogue box.
3. Press the tab key once or until you locate the following: Summary of
selected locations

basket list view. Press down arrow to locate the Windows Live Mail entry.
4. Press Shift + Tab key once. The location of the Windows Live Mail folder
will be

highlighted and presented in a hierarchical tree view format. You will also
notice that this

folder will have a checkbox associated with it. Leave this item checked and
arrow down

once or twice to select the Windows Mail entry. Press the spacebar to change
the status of

this Windows Mail folder to checked.
5. Tab to ok and press enter. If necessary, press tab to Ok and hit enter
once again.
6. At this point the Windows search Index will begin indexing all of your
Windows Mail

email messages. Depending on the number of email messages you have
accumulated, this

may take a few seconds or much longer.
7. After the indexing of your messages has been completed, try running a
search for a

recent email message. Press the Windows key to go to the Start menu search
box and type

the following then press down arrow to review the results (you can also copy
and paste

this search syntax):
kind:email date:yesterday
As you down arrow through the search results you will be presented with a
list of email

messages from your Inbox, or from your W7Starters's folder, or in any other
folder

containing saved email messages from the previous day. Press enter to read
the message.

Press escape to close the message.
If you do not get any hits you may have to try variations on the "date"
filter such as
Today or lastweek.

After a little practice, you will discover using Windows Search will help
you find email

messages with speed and ease you've never experienced before.

`1Removing Take Ownership from the Windows Context menu

Now that Windows Mail has been successfully installed and configured, you
can do some

minor housecleaning. You installed a utility called Take Ownership, which
allowed you to

have complete access to a specific Windows system file. You will no longer
have any need

for this Take Ownership utility, so removing it from the Windows Context
menu is in order.

`2To remove Take Ownership from the Windows Context menu:
1. Locate the Ryan's Windows Mail Tweak folder.
2. Open the following subfolder: Take ownership Removal. Press enter on the
single

registry file: Remove Take Ownership.reg.
3. When the registry editor message is presented press enter on the Yes
button. Press enter

on the Ok button.
4. Open a Windows Explorer window, open a folder, locate any file, and press
the Windows

Context menu key. Press down arrow through all of the options to make sure
that the Take

Ownership entry is no longer listed.

`1Closing Comments

As I've stated above, I've had absolutely zero problems with this process
and Windows Mail

in general--it simply works. Yet, there are a few things to keep in mind...

1. Will I be able to use the Help files?
You will not have access to any of the Windows Mail help files. In fact,
there isn't much at

all in the Help menu. This is far from a show stopper as Windows Mail has
been around for

years now, so any question you may have can be answered very quickly by
running the

most basic Google search. If you are an experienced Outlook Express user,
you will not

have any need for the help files. Judging from the types of messages I read
on various list

serves it doesn't appear too many people are fans of the F1 key or help
menus in general

anyways so this is in no way a hindrance.

2. Should I uninstall windows Live Mail?
This is a personal decision, but if you want access to all your previously
saved Windows

Live Mail messages I suggest you do not uninstall it. If you have followed
every step of this

tutorial you will have incapacitated WLM to the point that you will forget
about it in a

couple of weeks. In the event you have the need to review an older email
message as might

be the case with a message relating to a purchase or an important personal
email

message, you will want access to that document. By deleting or removing your
message

stores you will not have access to this information. Furthermore, by not
uninstalling your

previous email client you will not have to import the old messages into
Windows Mail as

you can readily access these email messages by running a simple search as
described

above. As a small digression, after installing Windows Mail I was so
overwhelmed with its

great accessibility and stability that I instantly decided that WLM must go
for good. This

was a huge mistake because I incorrectly believed that by deleting the
accounts my email

stores would still remain. A few minutes after deleting all of my accounts I
stopped to

wonder why I was hearing so much hard drive and processor activity on my
computer. I

suddenly recalled the familiar sound I was hearing, it was the Windows index
deleting

entries. Awareness of what I had just done hit me like a ton of bricks--I
had just

accidentally deleted absolutely all of my email messages. Windows was now
busily

removing thousands of email message entries from its search index. Luckily I
followed

every step of this tutorial and backed up my email messages!

3. Are there any weird quirks with this Windows Mail tweak?
If you press your Windows Mail hotkey, and if you have not yet established a
connection to

the internet, you may be presented with the following message:

"Windows Mail dialogue
Windows Mail has stopped working. A problem has caused the program to stop
working

correctly. Please close the program.
Close the program button."

This message is nothing to worry about. The solution is to first press enter
on the Close

this program button. Launch your browser such as Internet Explorer. Confirm
you are

connected by running a Google search. If you are sure you are connected to
the internet

press your Windows Mail hotkey once again and your email client should open
in it's

normal fashion.

4. Will I still have to compact messages in windows Mail?
Yes. Like Outlook Express before it and WLM after it, you will have to
compact your email

messages after opening your email client 100 times. You will get the
following message:

"Windows Mail
Windows Mail can compact the message store. This may take up to a few
minutes.
OK Cancel
Get help from communities"

Press enter on Ok for the process to begin. The entire process may take a
few seconds or a

few minutes.

5. Anything else I should know?
As I stated within the tutorial, do not forget to go back into the folder
options and return

the settings for hidden files and system files back to their defaults (off).
See Step #3 above.

Re: windows live mail or Microsoft outlook 2007 mail with jaws 13 and windows 7

Joni Colver <earlybird@...>
 

I decided to try Windows Live Mail 2011 and I like it more than I thought I would. It has some similarities to Outlook Express. You cannot use first-letter navigation to go from folder to folder, but I can get around quickly enough to suit me with the arrow keys. It has a spell checker and the message rules and the options dialog are about like those in Outlook Express. The main reason I tried it was because it is free. I did not want to purchase the Microsoft Office suite to get Outlook 2010 unless I found that I did not like WLM 2011. Outlook sounds like it has more bells and whistles than I need to just do casual email.

Nickus de Vos <bigboy529@...>
 

Hi I have been using Windows 7 since it came out and for the last
month or so I've also had jaws 13. I once tryed windows mail for a
while last year sometime but because I have been using outlook
basically all my life I just didn't like it. I won't say it's not
propperly accessible but the accessibility is not always that smooth.
I also have Office 2007 and I would say if you already used outlook
even if it was 2000 or 2003, stick with it. 2007 is a bit different
from 2003 with the ribbon menu's and all but jaws has great tutorials
on using the ribbon menu's in Office 2007 so give it a go, you'll
quickly get use to it, it's not rocket science.

I often find the same situation.
I then turn on the jaws cursor and try to find the link I want and then
right click to bring up the options I want.
Yes it is tedious but its the only solution I have found.

Hi all,

Whenever I press the application key within a webpage, what I face is
usually a list of irrelevant options. It seems that the options presented to
me are applicable to another object in the webpage. I think it's a mismatch
between where the virtual PC cursor is located, and where the application
key is affecting. Is it a common problem among the Jaws users? If yes, is
there any fix?

Thanks,

Hamid

When this happens it means that the virtual cursor is not actually on the
correct object. Simply make sure to use the Tab key to land on the object,
and then use the Right Mouse Button.
