Hi, Kevin. Yes, there is.

 

1. Find a pdf file on your computer.

2. With the file highlighted or selected, press ALT plus ENTER to open properties.

3. Press ENTER on the Change button in properties.

4. Choose Adobe Reader from the choices.

5. Press ENTER on Apply, and again on OK.

 

Now pdf's should open in Adobe reader.

Hi, Brian. Outlook, at least version 2010, has a junk folder, as do many IMAP folders on servers of ISP's. Because of this, it is difficult to know exactly which email client Michael is running.

Michael,

         As Bill White has mentioned, you really need to first determine where the move to Junk is being done, and resolve the issue there.  If your email provider is Comcast, then if you check your webmail you should see the same messages in Junk as you see in the email client, then it's most probable that Comcast is doing that assignment.  And if that's the case I'd whitelist anything coming from groups.io using whatever mechanism they use.

          The fact that you say Junk makes me think you're using Thunderbird, and if so you can either train its Junk filtering or put in a whitelist item for anything originating from groups.io and never sending that to junk.

I am sorry that I did not make my position clear. I have used face ID in the past for my customers and have found the experience variable. The reason you might find it reliable most of the time is the fact that you are using a Microsoft product. I do use Fusion personally and on my ThinkPad Yoga it was hit or miss. The finger print reader was more reliable but fails at times as well. As someone said in this thread if face id or the finger print reader does not work you can always use the Pin Code. It is important to remember that opinions  on this list are the experience of the user and not to be taken as gospel . Thank you for making me make my answer more clear. Just goes to show you should think before you touch those keys.

Please don’t take offense. since you don’t use face ID, you should not give advice such as this. I use it on my Surface Pro7 and it is almost 100% accurate. In the case that it might not work the first time, you set up a pin number to enter much like you would use a passcode on an IPhone.

Actually, I find it much better than face ID on the phone. And it works very well in low light.

Good morning,

 

I just purchased a new laptop.

 

It’s a Lenovo IdeaPad & has both touch& face ID.

 

When I got to the point during setup, where it asked me to scan my finger, for touch ID, narrator didn’t say anything, so I needed sighted assistance.

Butt when its ready for me to login, Jaws says, “scan your finger on the fingerprint reader.”

 

Would it do the same with face ID?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

At first, it says “Looking for you” then it says “Making sure it is you.” Then you will hear Jaws or whatever your screen reader uses as an alert. I find it works much more consistently than the finger print on my Lenovo laptop.
But, if it does not recognize you, it will prompt you for a pin number or if you tab to login options, you can choose how you want to proceed.

Marie,

             I am curious as to what a screen reader announces, or does not announce, when Windows Hello is set up to use facial recognition on a machine that supports it.

             If memory serves when this is chosen as the verification method there is nothing the user has to do but sit in front of the computer.  The camera, even if it's off normally, will be activated to view the face and a match will either be made, and you log in, or not.  I imagine if it doesn't recognize you that there'd have to be some sort of screen reader output to that effect.  But if you are recognized, I don't know whether it just logs you in or whether some sort of "You're verified" message is announced and the login proceeds.

              I have a machine with a fingerprint reader but none with facial recognition.

Hi, Michael. If you really want to clear up the problem of messages ending up in the junk folder, the best resolution is for you to go online with a web browser to Comcast.net, and mark the messages there as not spam. Although Outlook has a function similar to this, the messages continue to be deposited in the junk folder, even after marking them as not junk, and safe.

Hi,

 

As of recently, I’ve been using Firefox.

 

Today, just a few minutes ago, I discovered that you can send tabs to your computer from other devices.

 

I tried to send a drop box page to my computer from my iPhone, but when the alert came up, it went away before I had a chance to click “accept.”

 

Does anyone know how this procedure is supposed to work?

 

Thanks,

There is a constant dictionary annoyance  which I find with Jaws.

So for example Eloquence on Jaws  will mis-pronounce a name like Shostakovic. I amended this in my Jaws dictionary tonight to Shosta co vic to make it approximate to something like the correct pronunciation

.

However in practice this is not enough, because if Shostakovic is followed by a full stop. A comma, a colon then the    amended pronunciation will not work for me. This means that for every word I want to put in the Jaws dictionary has to be entered at least 4 time.

The first time without any punctuation, the next 3 times with a full stop, a comma, and a colon.

Depending on what I am trying to read I sometimes have to add the word 6  times to the dictionary because you have to also include version of the word with a question mark and exclamation mark and so on.

I assume that there is nothing I can do to avoid this annoyance at this time but surely it is not too great a coding challenge for VFO to make the Jaws pronunciation dictionary just a little more intelligent and smart and less dumb?

I got to the “Change data formats” link and hit enter.

I tabbed to the short date format and arrowed down to April 5, 17 and hit enter.

 

I went back to your message in outlook and the date read as: Sent Fri 26-Mar-21 10:24 AM

 

Is that what you want it to say?

Hi, Brian. My version of Outlook is 2010. What I see no setting for is to change the numeric month value to a name value, even if the format is changed from compact to single line view.

That's my presumption, too.  But I still want to know where in Outlook (and what version, for that matter) we're talking about.  

I see Bill has provided the where, so I need to fire up Outlook 2016 (which is all I have, but it's the base code for 2019 and 365, so it should do) to see what deep, dark setting in Outlook is used to decide what to snag.

One can change the short date format to something like:  25-March-2021.  If it is snagging from short date, and that would be adequate, I'd actually try tweaking the short date format via its combo box first (see my previous message for location in Settings).

On a related note, is there any conflict with jaws 2021 and touchID?

Good morning,

 

I just purchased a new laptop.

 

It’s a Lenovo IdeaPad & has both touch& face ID.

 

When I got to the point during setup, where it asked me to scan my finger, for touch ID, narrator didn’t say anything, so I needed sighted assistance.

Butt when its ready for me to login, Jaws says, “scan your finger on the fingerprint reader.”

 

Would it do the same with face ID?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

My gut tells me that how Outlook has decided on the format to use has probably been the same "since dirt."

If you're under Windows 10, try the change I've mentioned and see if it carries over to Outlook after you exit and restart it.  If it doesn't, I do not have any access to Outlook 2010 any longer and regret that I cannot assist further.

I can now definitely confirm that the portion of the date for month, day, year that's pulled up in Outlook comes from the Short Date setting for Windows.

After changing mine to use the format that they use, 05-Apr-17, as the example of, my Outlook date filed displays as:  Fri 26-Mar-21 11:21 AM

Now, mind you, that changes the display of short dates everywhere.  My system clock shows 1:24 PM with the date beneath it being 26-Mar-21 now.
