You can do this with ITunes. It is typically all on the first page
when you plug your I Phone and start tabbing. I did it for a client
about a month ago for the first time and it took about five minutes. I
may be able to find the article in my history, but I just did a quick

Re: How to run as administrator in outlook 2016

I am glad to know I am not the only one suffering. I have been working with the Accessibility team at Microsoft for 2 weeks & Outlook still doesn't work. Would it be better to use my Outlook 2010?

Hi Lauren,

Usually you would just go to your Outlook 2016 shortcut, right click or use F10 and then find "Run as Administrator" in the context menu.

It's interesting you are having this issue because I recently experienced the same problem on a desktop I have with Windows 10 and Outlook 2016. A few months back I realized that my main Outlook.com account wasn't updating any more and it said it was "Disconnected" even though my business exchange account worked fine. I called Microsoft Accessibility and the lady there said there was a known issue and the work-around was to run Outlook as administrator. This seemed to work for me for a while except a few days ago I suddenly realized another Outlook.com email account I have and which use for the Viphone mailing list was receiving emails, but anything I tried to send was just stuck in the Outbox folder.
I called back Microsoft Accessibility since I was also not able to get into the account settings for any of my accounts even when I ran Outlook with administrator rights.
The guy who helped me said there were some updates downloading, he tried a few things and in the end said it asked for my computer to restart. I did this and then my computer just showed a blank screen with some spinning thing, we left it for about 15 minutes since he said maybe it is configuring updates, but then he though I should try a hard reset so I turned the computer off and when I turned it back on the same thing happened. I let it sit there, went to work and when I came back in the evening my wife said it was still the same which means that PC is officially toast and I will have to see if I can get to where I can reset Windows or if not I'll have to install from scratch.
I had the same problem on a laptop about 2 months ago, everything worked fine before I went to bed and in the morning it was the same thing. I think there were updates over night and something must have gone wrong. In this case one of my employees who is sighted said they could get to options like restore, reset and so on. We tried twice to restore to a restore point from 2 days earlier, the process completed, but when the laptop booted up after the restore finished it simply went back to the blank screen with the spinning thing.
I eventually selected to reset it which then worked and Windows came back up, of course all applications had been deleted.
I reinstalled Office 2016 from my Office 365 Home Premium subscription and when I tried to set up my email accounts I couldn't do so. I kept getting the following message after I put in my email address and password:

There was an error locating one of the items needed to complete this operation. It might have been deleted.

The only choice was an "OK" button.
I tried this both with my exchange email from my Office 365 Small Business subscription and my personal Outlook.com email which of course is Exchange Active Sync.
I then called Office support and the tech tried some stuff, made me download a repair tool which was supposed to fix any issues and nothing worked. He then said I needed to uninstall Office and referred me to Office 365 activation support, we uninstalled and reinstalled from my Office 365 Small Business account because apparently even though the same programs are being installed they are different.
The short of it is that no matter what they tried, they could not configure my email accounts and this is now being escalated and referred back to the Outlook team.

In the meantime I logged into my Office 365 business portal and installed the Office suite on a desktop at my business which still has Windows 7 Professional on it. After it finished I ran Outlook, it asked if I wanted to connect to an email account and I said yes, I entered my business email address and password and after about 10 seconds I got the "Finish" button and all worked perfectly. I then added my personal Outlook.com email with similar ease and both email addresses are sending and receiving, I can go into the Account Settings and there is no need to run as administrator or anything.

I think there is something terribly wrong with Windows 10 and Outlook 2016 and I have a feeling that this was introduced with the anniversary upgrade. I am going to spend a bit of time tonight or tomorrow and Google this since I can't see that I am the only person effected.

MS-Word and JAWS to become unresponsive, requiring Word to be restarted.

I inserted a comment into an MS-Word file yesterday using JAWS 18 beta
and
didn't experience the bug, but it wasn't happening every time under JAWS
17,
so it isn't clear yet whether it has been fixed.

Usually, I write my documents in a text editor (not a word processor), in

a
format such as LaTeX or Markdown, then convert them to PDF, HTML, MS-Word
format or whatever is needed. Pandoc is a very useful tool that I've been
relying on extensively of late. http://www.pandoc.org/

I also use Git to track changes - it's much more powerful than a word
processor, as it's used extensively to manage large software projects and
even
books. The "--word-diff" option can show you, word-by-word, what has been

I also experienced a bug several times recently (running JAWS 17 and
MS-Word
2016) whereby inserting a comment into a document was enough to cause both
MS-Word and JAWS to become unresponsive, requiring Word to be restarted.

I inserted a comment into an MS-Word file yesterday using JAWS 18 beta and
didn't experience the bug, but it wasn't happening every time under JAWS
17,
so it isn't clear yet whether it has been fixed.

Usually, I write my documents in a text editor (not a word processor), in a
format such as LaTeX or Markdown, then convert them to PDF, HTML, MS-Word
format or whatever is needed. Pandoc is a very useful tool that I've been
relying on extensively of late. http://www.pandoc.org/

I also use Git to track changes - it's much more powerful than a word
processor, as it's used extensively to manage large software projects and
even
books. The "--word-diff" option can show you, word-by-word, what has been
inserted or deleted, as in

This text contains {+inserted words+} and {-some words here have been-}
deleted.

Hi all,

When I was using jaws 13 or earlier, this information was displayed in the
“help/about” box of the jaws window.

Now, with my new jaws 17, I still can see the number of upgrades I am
allowed to install but not the remaining number of machines on which I can
install my copy of jaws. At installation time, I activated my copy with an
ILM key.

Where should I look for, in order to get this information please?

Many thanks in advance. Have a nice day. ChD

I am trying to do it the other way round; I want to transfer my contacts
from my IPhone to my Outlook email.

Is this possible?

You could well be correct.

I'm going to have to take a close look at my Outlook contacts list to see if
there is a problem with the fields for certain entries.

Will need a substantial block of time to do this, though, so it may be a
while.

For what it's worth, I have the opposite question:

Is there a way to transfer your Outlook 2016 contacts list to an iPhone 6?

I am not optimistic.

A few weeks ago, when I set up my iPhone to work with Outlook e-mail, it
imported all of my contacts to my iPhone. It really made a mess of my
contacts list, and, after that, whenever I texted someone, the texts went to
e-mail addresses instead of phone numbers.

Needless to say, I abandoned that operation.

Yes, like correctly tagging music fixing contacts can be time consuming, but in the end it is worthwhile.

Re: Clicking On Links

 

Has popup usually means that another selection of choices pops up when you activate the link. You might want to try Control+Jaws Key+Enter. If you do this and it is a mouseover or popup Jaws may ay something like "Change at line #19. If so use the "j" quick key and type in 19 to jump directly to line 19, then arrow down and you should find these options.

Re: autoplay in Windows 10

 

Works for me, Windows 10 with Anniversary upgrade and Jaws 17. I just press the Windows key and type "Autoplay" in the search field, Jaws reads "Autoplay Settings, system settings" to indicate that this is a system setting and pressing enter will open it.
If this still doesn't work you can find it under Settings > Devices, use Windows+I to open Settings, arrow right to "Devices", press enter, tab once to get into the list of available options for the "Devices" area and then Autoplay is item 5 of 6, the entire list is:

Printers and Scanners
Connected Devices
Mouse and Touchpad
Typing
Autoplay
USB

I'm trying to use Dropbox photo backup from my iPhone. I hear the

click on it. I thought you could just left click whith Jaws when you
hear a notification. But, that doesn't bring up the option.


Can not find autoplay in settings either.


So, I can't do the Dropbox backup till I can get to that setting.

Hello list ken with a question just now for not the first time while listening to pandora the music suddenly stopped.  after a minute or so an alert came on saying, “a problem with this webpage caused internet explorer to close and reopen the tab.  I’ve only noticed this on IE.  is it a problem with pandora or is it a problem with IE?  similarly that very unclear message that says, A problem has caused so and so app to stop working windows is checking for a solution.  I haven’t ever been told what the undefined problem or solution is so can’t correct it obviously.  does anyone know  why this happens again and again on IE seemingly?
