Mirroring mail on Outlook and Gmail

Marianne Denning
 

I recently had to change things in Outlook and when I did I could read all of my incoming mail in Outlook but it was being pulled from the server so I couldn't read it in Gmail. I have looked everywhere to find the setting that will fix this. I am running Windows 10, Office 365 and JAWS 2018 and 2019. I would appreciate any help.

I can't figure out how to access the answers on this site with JAWS , either.  But there is probably nothing you can do about it because FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has demonstrated by his words and actions that he is an enemy of consumers and a friend of big business.  Just the other day, he boasted that he was happy that he repealed net neutrality.  So if you contact the FCC to let them know that their site is not accessible, you will probably get nowhere, even though by law, it must be made accessible under the provisions of the ADA.  Besides, most FCC employees have been furloughed because of the government shutdown, which the President has asserted could last a very long time, so there probably isn't anyone you could contact, anyway, until the shutdown is over.

Re: recommendations for a new laptop

Kevin,
 
That may not be easy to determine, as often rehab or other agencies source refurbished computers rather than purchasing new ones off the shelf. Also if they deal in any volume, they may even source computers at a discount, or being a non-profit, receive some at no cost, such as models that are discontinued and excess inventory.

Hi all! 

 Unfortunently, I don’t currently know the latest portable hard drive modles out there. I would advise you to get a nice tarribite hard drive or higher if you can. As for a new laptop computer, I got one last October and it’s a Dell laptop computer. So far, so good!!! When you do go for your new laptop computer, the top modle or the one behind is probably the one to go for so that you can get the best life span out of your new laptop. However, when you do go looking for them, you’ll also need to figure out what you want out of your laptop as well. I had to do this over the last year myself. I orriginally wanted a Mack laptop computer but when I took my own need for a laptop computer to the Oregon Commission for the Blind, they informed me that the Mack wasn’t the right computer because for the college world, it’s not as accessible as I needed. This is why I wound up getting a Dell PC laptop computer instead. Because I was a decade behind in my tech, I also got tech training of which I still am getting tech training. I also had to get a braille note taker and a talking graphic calculator along with the laptop computer. In fact, I have to spend my Saturday teaching myself about the calculator because I just got that last week and my math class starts on Monday. Mind you, I still haven’t totally mastered the P.C. Laptop computer or my braille note taker. This is why I’m still doing the training in technology. So, I know what you are probably wondering, what is the best laptop computer for you. I can’t answer that for you but I can point you to something like a Dell PC with the advise to figure out what you need out of your computer. I’ll say this about the Dell laptop computer, the one good thing about it is that the Dell laptop is reletively universal. You can get one and use it in your home just as nicely as you can take one to work or school and use it in those places as well. I have a friend who also owns a Dell laptop computer and she only uses it for the home setting. I use my own Dell laptop for both at home and at school. But while at home, my main computer, believe it or not is my iPhone SE. I mainly use my Dell to sync up to my cloud drives and Emails. But at school and tech training, I use it for most things there. I use it along with my braille note taker, my phone and my graphing calculator. The real work starts Monday when I take the first period of math class. I hope this will help you Good luck!!! I hope you find the right computer for you!

Hi all! 
 They bought the computer for me because of my college career. I don’t know its price. But you can google that up. As for screen readers, if you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on JAWS, there is always NVDA. I have both installed on my computer because JAWS has weaknessis that NVDA covers and vise versa. Also, whenever JAWS decides to act up, NVDA has got your back most of the time. I don’t recamend Microsoft Narater which pails in comparisn.

I think Jožef meant activations, not authorizations. an authorization is
that 20 character code (only one) that one uses to successfully activate
an installation of JAWS, turning a demo (only 40 minutes of use) into a

Re: recommendations for a new laptop

Kimber Gardner
 

Hi,

I bought a Lenovo E580 around two months ago and I really like it. It
is a 15-inch model as I wanted a laptop with a full keyboard. The only
modification I had to make was to script the applications key to the
print screen key which was not strictly necessary, but a convenience.
It has an I7 processor and dual hard drives, the primary drive is a
500 gig solid state drive and the secondary is a 1 tb drive I use for
data. I customized the configuration on the Lenovo site and received
the laptop in around two weeks. The cost was around $1400.

I hope this is helpful. If you have more questions, just ask.

Re: JAWS an codes

Yes, Corel basically told the screen reader manufacturers where to stick it.

Since they refused to work with GW Micro or Freedom Scientific for several years, Microsoft really took over at least where accessibility is concerned.

 

In the days of good old MS-DOS, Word Perfect 5.1 was fabulous with a screen reader.

 

O well, time marches on.

Ed,

I just did a web search about reveal codes and there is a known problem in the versions of Word above 2016 build 1701 or something like that.  I suspect you are on 2016 build 1803 or 1809.

 

This came from a Microsoft Community page that was updated December 28, 2018.

 

Did you used to use Word Perfect when Reveal Codes were easy to access?

 

They have never been easy to get to with Word and I’m not sure if they have been really accessible with a screen reader.  My sighted wife uses them some times, but she is a relatively new convert to Word from Word Perfect.

 

There is still a “clear formatting” option on the Styles drop-down, but I’m not sure that will do what you are hunting for.

 

You can go into the options on the File menu and turn on all the various markers so you wil hear space and tab and such everywhere, but that would be a royal pain.

 

Clear formatting, as I just found with a quick test, will get rid of bold, underline, etc.  It will not remove tabs.  But, you can do that with find and replace.

 

To clear formatting, select all the text you want to remove the formatting and tap the following keys one after the other, not together.  Alt, h, l, c.

 

To use find and replace for tabs, press control+h (that brings up find and replace) type ^t in the find box, tab to replace and put a single space in if you want so as to avoid ending up with words smashed together with no spaces and hit alt+a.

 

Jaws willl tell you how many were replaced.

 

If you want to get rid of hard returns, the symbol to use is ^p.

 

The ^ is the capital 6, on the number row if you didn’t know that.  And the t or p for tab and hard return are lower case.

 

I hope that helps,

Richard

Actually, I’m talking about underling, tabs, etc.

If you're talking about Field codes then ALT+F9 is the toggle to reveal/hide (or at least return to non-field code format) the field codes in a Word document.
