Hi all, I have been with the Microsoft desk five different times on this, and they finally told me that they couldn’t help me. They think I have a hard ware issue. I have been trying to get this computer to update all the windows update for month’s .now, and it just won’t update. I have jaws 2018 on it, but it is only part of the program. For example I have jaws 18 Om my desk top. When I hit enter on it, it doesn’t go to options, basic, etc. it opens to jaws, roaming, settings. I have a disc here with jaws 2018 on it, and it tries to install, but the install fails at   50%. I tried to install versions 19 through 2021 and they all failed at 50%.This computer used to be wonderful. I haven’t a clue as to what has happened to titlist there any way I can reset the computer, and get a   fresh start with it? How could I do that and keep the programs I have? Is there anything I can do? This is an ASUS computer, 3 years old? Thanks for putting up with my earlier emails. Jim.

 

 


moderated copying text from one word doc to another and losing headings

mike mcglashon
 

Hi guys:

 

The situation is,

I have two word windows open,

One has a copy of my whole textbook with headings in it for easy navigation;

The second window is simply a blank word doc that I will copy a chapter from my book on the first window into.

I notice however, after copy and paste,

In the blank word window, the headings disappeared following the paste into that window?

I only want to copy some chapters into the blank word doc because I only want jaws to continuously read up to the end of that chapter;

If I simply read from within the original textbook window,

Jaws will read past the end of the chapter I wish to stop at.

 

I hope this doesn’t confuse you.

 

Please advise as you like.

 

Mike M.

Hi all,
Sorry to keep asking you guys about this stuff, but now that I've added my gmail
account to Outlook and disabled forwarding, is there a way to move all of my old
emails from my mts inbox to my gmail one? I know I could just go to my old inbox
if needed, but if I'm truly going to switch email addresses then I'd like to
have all my emails in one place. I know I could forward them, but I have tones
so that would take forever. Thanks for your patience!!!

If both of these accounts are in your outlook program, you can open each of the messages, one-by-one, and when open, hit alt key, go to file and down to info. Hit enter on info and then enter on move message. When you have done this, pick the other email address folder you choose to save these in. Feel free to contact me off list, I will be glad to help so not to overwhelm everybody with too many messages.

Madison,

          Someone else will have to advise on importing your existing messages from your old email into the Gmail account.  The only way I know of to do this is forwarding them, and if the archive is extensive that's just not practical.  I generally do what you said, and that's keep the old account dormant, forwarding all new messages to where I want them to be, but having the archive of existing messages available for my reference when I might need to do that.  It keeps my new account "cleaner" from the outset.

            When you delete a message from any account and it goes into trash it will retain the same read/unread status it had at the moment of deletion.  In the end, that really doesn't matter, as trash gets purged of messages that reach 30 days old regardless of their read or unread status.  Outlook does allow you to change how quickly a message is marked as read once you open it (and you do have to open it), but if the intention is not to open these messages, which I'd have to presume it is, then just delete them in unread state and forget about them.  Trash is trash.

moderated Re: question on output ona Focus 40 Braille Display

Cohn, Jonathan
 

The grade and language of Braille is controlled by the screen reader. In JAWS open options braille and set it there. In NVDA there is a braille area in the settings dialog. 
MAKE sure to look at both input and output settings.

I have experienced the same issue with my doctor’s patient portal and MetroFax website. They both allow you to fill out the form fields but don’t even try to submit the information. I have tried everything except a hammer but to no avail. However, I did complain to MetroFax and it was determined it was a problem on their side. So, your problem may be on the source side and not you.

I finally just temporarily turned off Jaws and turned on Narrator to do those few task.

Since Narrator did the task without a problem, that told me that the problem is with Jaws. At least thats the case with the problems that I was having.
