update working fine after jaws update

marvin kotler
 

Good evening group, Marv here.  After the last jaws update through the jaws update feature, research it working fine. 


Re: research it is not working after installing the latest jaws update.

Hi Jim,
I just tried the ResearchIt feature now to get weather results and
technology news stories. Both of these features seem to work fine
after today's update. I ran the update through the JAWS update
feature. Perhaps the look-ups you were trying to conduct may have been
down? I would try the look-up source again and if the problem persists
conduct a JAWS repair.
I hope that helps

Hi, Jim. Did you download the latest installer from the Freedom Scientific website, or did you use the update feature in JAWS? If you used the update feature of JAWS, this might be why ResearchIt is not working. I never use the update feature of JAWS for this reason.

Ribbons In Word

"Kevin Hourigan " <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Greetings All,

Using Jaws 17, today’s build, Windows 10, and Word 2016;

Is it just me, or have the ribbons in word gone mad.

I pressed control shift S to go to change a heading level to normal text, arrived at styles, but the list of headings was not there. I pressed Alt H, L, and arrived at the same place.  I pressed alt H, enter, (for if I did not press enter I would get the Tell Me What You Want To Do edit field), and tabbed around until I found the list of headings, normal text etc. I found a styles inspector dialog, (whatever that is), some headings reported to have a pop up, (what does one do with a pop up?), and tabbing and arrowing only works sporadically.

Cheers Kevin.

Latest J17.0.2619 Update Download Links, + What's New

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below are the direct download links for the latest Jaws update + what's new in this J17.0.2619 release.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
What's new in this release:
Enhancements in JAWS 17.0.2619 (August 2016)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 17 July 2016 release and the August 2016 update.
 
list of 9 items
• Beginning with the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition released by Microsoft in August 2016, when JAWS starts, it now tells Windows 10 that you are using
JAWS and asks Windows to avoid forcing you into Edge when searching the web using Cortana. As a result, Cortana web searches will instead be done using
the default browser you have specified in Windows 10. This JAWS change will have no impact in prior Windows 10 releases.
• You can now use contracted braille input when typing in the Windows 10 Search edit box as well as in the edit fields in many Modern apps including the
Windows 10 Mail app.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where extraneous information was being spoken by JAWS when opening a message in Windows Live Mail.
• Addressed a customer reported issue with the SayTaskBar script not working as expected.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not correctly reading form fields on certain web pages in Internet Explorer 11.
• Addressed a reported issue where pressing keys on a braille display were sometimes triggering unexpected actions in various applications.
• When focused on a calendar appointment in Outlook 2013 and later, pressing INSERT+F1 now displays screen-sensitive help specific to the calendar as expected.
In addition, pressing INSERT+CTRL+D now works as expected to announce the current date.
• When using the ALT+NUMBER ROW keystrokes to read the contents of the various fields in a meeting request in Outlook 2013 and later, resolved an issue
where the field content was not matching the prompt.
• Resolved an issue where the command to move focus to the results field in the Windows 10 calculator (INSERT+CTRL+D) could not be found using the JAWS
Command Search feature.
list end
Take care.

setting up windows mail

Mark Furness
 

I have been trying to set up windows mail on windows 10.
No matter where I go there does not seem to be a place where input or output port numbers can be set.
I wish to set up my account for bell, here in Canada, through sympatico.ca. It is a pop3 account, internet mail.
My gmail account is working fine, but I can not add my pop3 account.
All is done in outlook perfectly, it is just windows mail that is being a pain.
tried was other account andadvance set up and even hot mail since sympatico uses hot mail in their settings.


Re: Windows live mail will not configure: please get back to me!

 

Ryan,

            Have you tried logging in via the Google (I don't care if it's Gmail, but that's easiest) web interface with this account recently?  That's the first thing I'd do.  Then navigate to your Google Accounts page and make sure that two-step verification is turned off, as I don't think that WLM supports it.  That could very likely be your problem.

            See this Google Help Page for the step-by-step instructions, with direct link to your the accounts page if you're already signed-in, for turning off two-step verification.

Windows live mail will not configure: please get back to me!

Ryan Coverdell
 

My gmail account will not configure in the windows live program. I got
to the log in where it's setting up folders and it gave me an error
message that login info was wrong. I know my email address and I know
my password. The actual error is below. Somehow google interprets this
as a blocked sign in attempt and sent an alert.



Regards,

Ryan
Coverdell
PS. I want to configure my email for windows live mail because
attachments are complicated to send to people in webmail. Folders are
hard to fault and the whole expand/collapse process is confusing. Does
any one using web mail find sending attachments easy and can some one
send me something on how to simplify it along with my wlm stuff/
Thanks. The error is below. It's rather odd, so I wonder if my wlm
program was damaged by malware. I don't know.

Re: Assistance with auto correct.

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

I found it is important to use Spell Check and proof. For instance, if you meant to type using and typed suing, Spell Check won't pick it up, but proofing would.

Hello Shane,

Of course it is your choice, but during the FS webinar it was pointed out that auto correct will make changes you will not see, and may not want. Additionally, if you press F 7 for spell check you hear the words you have spelled incorrectly, and their correct spelling. I have not read for over 50 years until I got Jaws 4 years ago, and was astonished at how terrible my spelling was; which has improved considerably since, thanks to spell check. Also spell check does not always identify the word you want correctly, and if it is done automatically you will not pick this up.

Cheers Kevin.

Thanks so much for any and all assistance, Shane.

Re: windows 10 mail adding contact

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

I realized it was essentially as you say, just went for the thing, and my husband and Good Computer guy here did all of the setting up. Even though others were involved, I am a one to stay on top of my business to have a better handle of things. As long as I have lived, I realize that there are ongoing changes all the time, and they're not going to stop, so, I guess you could just say, I came from XP, but then just rolled with all the stuff, ribbons and all. For my part, JAWS did not need to offer the Virtual Ribbon. I work way better without it than with it.

Carolyn,

You are indeed correct that a Microsoft Account is required these days if you purchase a license key for software that does not come with installation media. That's now the vast majority of it, as it's expected that you will be downloading "the latest and greatest" with any and all patches that have been applied when it comes time to install it.

There are "after the fact" advantages to this arrangement, too. Microsoft keeps a record with your account of all the software you've purchased and licensed. If you have a hard disk crash, or replace your hard disk for another or a SSD (solid state drive), it's a simple matter to download and reinstall the software which you're recorded as licensed for, up to and including Windows 10 itself.

I've heard a lot of complaints about having to have a Microsoft Account, but as an independent support tech I've been directly involved in a lot of "revival from the dead" on computers where, because the owner has lost their original installation media or simply cannot find it, and because there was no such thing as license tracking associated with an account, they have no way to reinstall the programs they've been using and depending on. What's sometimes worse than the financial outlay of having to buy new versions of things like Microsoft Office is when a user has been clinging to something like Office 2007 and has to move straight to Office 2016 against their will. The tectonic shift to the ribbons-based interface was jarring for all of us and there are still many people, sighted and visually-impaired or blind, who will not take the time to learn the ribbon system such that they get proficient with it. It's definitely not going away.

I've also had clients who had no idea they had a Microsoft Account because the setup of their computer and a lot of the software was done by a third party such as myself who simply set up an account using either the clients e-mail address (with their permission, of course, but memory of that fades) or by creating a "for the purposes of creating a Microsoft Account" e-mail address under some free service like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. You have no choice if the client has purchased license keys and the only way to actually install the software is to have a Microsoft Account under which those keys are recorded and that then allows you to download and install the software in question.

Re: step by step keyboard instructions for setting up windows live mail with gmail

 

I'm replying to the group because this information may be useful to others.


Adding an account to Windows Live Mail 2012 via Keyboard Commands

1.        Open WLM

2.       Hit ALT+S to be taken to the Accounts Tab followed by E to open the Create E-mail Account dialog

3.       Navigate to the e-mail address box and enter your e-mail address.

4.      Navigate to the Password Box and enter your password

5.       Navigate to the “Remember this Password” checkbox and make sure it’s checked.  It should be checked by default.

6.      Navigate to the “Display Name for your Sent Messages” box and enter the name you wish to have shown before your e-mail address when you send e-mail messages.  This can be left empty, but I don’t advise doing that.

7.       If you wish the account you’re adding to become your default account when WLM opens then navigate to the “Make this my default e-mail account” checkbox, and check it.

8.      There remains one checkbox, “Manually configure server settings” that follows the default account checkbox.  There are very few e-mail service providers, if the one you’re using is a major one like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Verizon, etc., that WLM does not already have the configuration information for in its database.  I advise leaving this unchecked.

9.      Activate the Next button.

10.    If everything goes as expected then you’ll get a message that the account was added and you can just activate the Finish button.  If it did not, you’ll need to find out what the specific server settings are for the e-mail provider you’re using, including the necessary port numbers for the incoming and outgoing mail servers, and the security and login protocols used for each, then circle back to step 8, but check the checkbox to manually configure server settings.  I will not get into the server settings configuration dialogs at this time, as they are seldom needed.

step by step keyboard instructions for setting up windows live mail with gmail

Ryan Coverdell
 

I had malware on my computer last year and at the same time
centurylink updated their settings so my email at CenturyTel.net was
inaccessible. I was able to configure an older computer at my parents'
house using vista, to at least receive email in windows live. But for
some reason I can't send with this device.

My computer at my own house is running jaws 14 and windows 7. I'm
thinking that I might want to get my windows live mail working again,
if for no other reason than the fact that file attachments are rather
complicated to send using web mail. so here's what I want to do.

I want to set up my windows live mail client for gmail being my
default account. Prtessing the alt key from within the program brings
up various tabs in the message tab but does not get me to the email
accounts tab. So could some one contact me and tell me, command at a
time, how to setr up a gmail account or edit settings in my CenturyTel
account? I'd prefer to use gmail. Please reply to this message,
preferably off list, today.

Kind regards,

Ryan Coverdell

Mark,

You can determine whether you have a Microsoft account that's linked to your logging in to Windows 10 by opening Settings followed by Accounts. The main window that will open initially is directly related to the account you're using to log in. I know that if it is a Microsoft Account you'll have a link on that page that reads, "Manage my Microsoft Account." Also, most Microsoft Account userids are an e-mail address that was selected by the user (or person doing the setup) at the time of setup. My Microsoft Account userid is my gmail address.

If you had a Microsoft account, you'd know it, because you
have to set it up, and it is a little bit of a pain to get
the darn thing set up. I have NEVER tried to access the Hot
Mail account, so have no idea in the world how full it is of
ads, since I haven't routed it to Outlook and have no
intention of chasing the thing down on the net, since I
usually don't even bother to open an attachment if it says
click here or shows a link.
