While I personally have no experience with them there are Web sites which allow you to track flights. If you Google "flight tracking" or a similar phrase you'll find some results.

I would let Freedom Scientific know what you're experiencing with the flight info tool. It is likely something that only they can fix.

Tom, I am still using it and for the most part, without any serious issues. Some weird little things crop up, like getting the error message that WLM has encountered a problem. But when I press okay, nothing happens and I can go right ahead with whatever I was doing. And believe me there are definitely issues with TB which are as bad or worse and some really annoying shortcomings in TB. The overall experience I have with WLM is still the best and I am running the newest release of Jaws 2020 and the latest build available to me of Win 10 2004.
This message is being done in WLM.

Sadly I have to agree with this. I have loved WLM and am still using it part of the time, but find there are more and more hiccups along the way. So I also use Thunderbird and am gradually getting used to it, although I doubt I will ever enjoy it the way I have WLM. WLM does everything faster than any other client I have tried and it has, in the past done everything I ever wanted my email client to do simply but fully. I don't care for to-do list, calendars, etc. Since I am retired.

And it has some very handy features I can't find in others.

Dear Good Samaritan Listers:

 

I have a desktop—a Dell Computer.  I see that Facebook has changed.  Using the new Facebook, when I log into Facebook or Messenger, how do I find the spot where it says to either call or chat with someone?  JAWS finds this every once in a while, but not always.  Question asked, answer demanded.

Once you're in the Home Tab and looking at any mailbox that belongs to the account you want to change, navigate to the Accounts Tab and activate Properties (ALT+S,P).  Port settings are in the Advanced Tab of Properties.

And don't be shocked if tweaking these still doesn't fix whatever's happening.

moderated Re: could not load braille driver

Ann Byrne
 

I had this one earlier this week. It has to do with the Windows 10 Braille driver setting. You can't have both Narrator and JAWS displaying Braille.

Press the windows key, and in the searchbox type Braille. Arrow down to 'turn Braille on and off" and press enter.
Be sure the 'turn on Braille' button is off.
Tab to 'add a braille display'. Tab to 'add a Braille display' and ignore it.
Tab again to the list of active Braille displays. there should be two: one that says windows something or other, and one that says Freedom Scientific packmate something or other. Be sure the windows is *not chosen and that the Freedom scientific display is chosen.
Press enter and hope for the best.

Good luck!

Hi Mike,

 

I have seen that error many times when working with braille displays and JAWS. It usually is fixed with either a reload of JAWS or a reboot of the computer. It sounds as though most things have been tried with no success. The only thing I can think of is have you tried a different cable between the computer and the PacMate? One time when I was repeatedly getting that error and nothing worked, it was the cable.

 

Good luck, Take care and be safe!

Hi guys:

 

When I load jaws,

(both previous versions and also with latest version from the other day),

I get a message:

Could not load braille driver

And then an “ok” button to which I must hit enter to pass.

 

Although I am not really technical,

I do believe I have latest version of windows because it does updates on its own from time to time without asking me.

 

I have spoken to vispero regarding this on several occasions:

On first occasion,

They tandomed into my system,

Done a jaws repair,

And as soon as I restart the computer the problem reappears.

 

On latter occasions,

They claim they cannot duplicate the bug, and,

That they will note it in their logs of errors and bugs.

 

My first question is:

Has anyone else received this error message? And,

If yes, what if anything did you do to repair this bug.

 

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I am trying to connect up to my pacmate braille display.

For a long time, the display connected nicely;

The problem is, I have had the error so long,

I don’t remember whenst it first occurred;

I am willing to guess that it started sometime last february or march.

 

Please advise as you like.

But the question becomes, under what version of Windows?   WLM has been working fine all the way up through Version 1909 of Windows 10, but has begun falling apart with Version 2004.

If you're a Windows 10 user, the end of WLM is near.  And if you're not a Windows 10 user, you eventually will be if you have the slightest concern for your own cyber security and wish to stay in a Windows ecosystem.
