When forwarding messages and typing in contact name

Poppa Bear <heavens4real@...>
 

Hello list, often when I go to forward a message or send a Word document right from inside of the document, and I type the recipiants name in the to field, I will hear the name, but it has not auto filled the area, I still have to tuype the entire email address out. This is not the case when I am typing an email address in the recipient of a new message, I just type the first few letters and it fills the rest. The same issue happens with going to my contacts with control/shift, b. When I put a contact in from a new message it works fine, but when I am forwarding or sending from within a Word document my contacts from the address book don’t work properly.

Any thoughts would be great.

Thanks, just so.  Insert plus num pad 5 twice from Andy and the alt plus T was not working as I was in the wrong place; I’ll save this for reference.  Mitch

Hello;

Another way you can edit a contact information,

1, ctrl+3=contacts,

Now arrow to the contact which you wish to edit,

Press enter on the contact,

Now press alt+t,

This will land you on contact name, now simply tab to the email address, you can use arrow keys to read/edit.

Hope this helps.

Hi,  I have reviewed the WLM manual but cannot figure out how to read an email address character by character from my contact list no matter what familiar JAWS techniques or cursors I use so I am clearly missing something simple.

Thanks for any help.  Mitch

I haven't done as much with the Linux subsystem as I have Cygwin in
the past but my experience so far is that it works pretty well. It
does have at least some of the same accessibility problems as the
console does after the anniversary update, for instance if text
scrolls off the top of the screen jaws will start reading from the top
where it used to only read the new text.

There are a few oddities, I installed emacs; if I do:
"emacs <filename>" emacs starts but the file is not loaded. I can do
"C-x, f" and then enter the file name and it does load, I am not sure
why specifying a file on the command line doesn't work.
One thing I really haven't looked at, MS says the Linux subsystem is a
limited environment, I have not checked package availability compared
with Cygwin to see if anything I use is unavailable. (I know X isn't
available but I don't use X so that's not a problem).

Hello Dave, go to your contacts by pressing control and     3 together then find the contact you want to spell then press and hold the insert key then press the numpad eight twice quickly while holding the insert key this should work for you.

Re: commandline accessibility

 

You might want to ask this question on the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group on Groups.io as well if you don't get an answer here.

This is something I can't help with other than to point you somewhere where you might find someone who can.

Re: syncing folders in the mail ap

 

Kimsan,

           This should happen automatically.  If you've just set up a given e-mail account give it time, particularly if you are someone who keeps a substantial archive of material.  Also know that most automatic synchronization will only look at fairly recent content as far as downloading message bodies goes.  You should, though, have a list of messages after a sync even if the message body for a given message has to be fetched when you first try to access that old message.

Sometimes you can set the Jaws highlight colors to what is being used to have new text spoken. Windows 10 may be using a different color scheme and it may not be being detected by Jaws.

syncing folders in the mail ap

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Hi,

 

I went to the mail ap on my windows 10 computer.  I navigated to a folder, for example, this folder jfw. It said it has yet to be synced. How do I do that?

 

 

Thank you.

How does one change settings in the people ap which is in winmail? It tells me I need to change settings, but I can not find where or what to do.

 

I have opened the people ap and tabbed around and hit alt all to no avail.

I want the people ap to show me all contacts, right now it is only showing me contacts with phone numbers.

Thank you for your patience with me.

It is in settings center for me (running win10) but is called "Lower
the volume of other programs while jaws is speaking" and is in the
"User" group. Note that you have to switch to the default profile, it
cannot be set on a per-program basis (but the setting is still
displayed, just can't be changed in the per-program profiles).

Re: instructions adding in winmail

 

Mark,

         Are you trying to add contacts from scratch?  You are right that there can be a number of things that are one-time setup that are peculiar since the People app and the Mail App are separate.  One of those is, if you have multiple e-mail accounts, you need to set one as default on which new contacts will be added (though you can shift to any other as a one-time exercise or change the default if you have a batch of new contacts you want to add).

         It would be helpful to know where you're getting stuck and what it is you're trying to accomplish at that moment in time.

A straight range would also work, if there are any values in that range at all. That always worked for me when I was figuring grades.

Joe,

There may be another function for averaging that avoids any zero values.
Otherwise, create a formula that first finds all non-zero values, and then
adds them up and divide by the total count of non-zero values. That takes a
few functions, but workable. I recall doing something like this several
years ago. First try to find a built-in function that averages all non-zero
values.

Also, check the Excel help function to look for any web-sourced solutions to
your question.

ok I'm now trying to get excel to tell me the AVERAGE of cells B102 D102
F102 G102 H102 I102 J102 K102 L102 M102
the problem being at the moment not all the cells have a number in them and
all it says is div 0,but as time goes on they will all have a number in
them.
the formula i have tried is =AVERAGE(B102 D102 F102 G102 H102 I102 J102 K102
L102 M102) but with this fromaler as far as I can tell the advridge of
these numbers all need a number in for it to show anything.
for example if b 102 and f 102 have numbers in I still get nothing in the
average cell.

well I hope you can make some sort of sense out of my ramblings.

I you want to use the formulas dialog, press ALT+m, then f. Tab to
the categories and choose all, then tab once more and find
average. You can fill in range after range after range, tabbing from
one to the next. Tabbing will *never get you to the okay button,
because it just allows for another range. Pressing enter might do
the okay, or shift+tab till you get back to okay.
