moderated Forwarded emails on list

Hi

I get the daily summary message from the list and use the links for messages that I’m interested in. My problem is that I can’t seem to access the ones that have “forwarded emails” in them. How do I access these using the latest JAWS and Mozilla on a Windows 10 desk top?

Regards

Lindy

What is interesting is that before that happened Parler was the number 1 download in the app store.

All I know is it’s a social media site inspired by the increasingly blatant sensorial actions of Big Tech against users with opinions that contrast with the alt-left views of those companies’ positions, particularly with regard to political matters. Others are Parler.com and Gab.com. Also there’s a search engine that does NOT artificially search results based on how closely sites/companies adhere to, or how sharply others diverge from similarly far left ideals, like Google. com does.

It’s under Other Devices listed by “PACmate USB RNDIS”

 

Device status: The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

 

Trying to do automatic driver updates results in no changes.  It doesn’t come out and say that it cannot find a driver but the eventual end at Software Updates claims I’m up to date.  *smile*

 

So, I do have the USB attached to the back of the PDA part as I see no way to attach a connection to just the display itself.  I have noticed the Pac Mate will respond to moments when my systems wakes.  So, there is some communication there.

Hi,

 

I would check to see what is going on with your USB port in the device manager in Windows 10. Let me know if you need help finding the device manager.

Someone gave me this braille display and I’ve managed to get it up and running as far as the Windows mobile usage is concerned.  But I really want to be able to do braille display of my desktop PC running Windows 10.  I have it connected via USB but the computer doesn’t seem to acknowledge it from what I can tell.  The device is running off the power from the port and I know the cable works as I use it for my old Book Port Plus.

I’ve tried to tell JAWS that a Pac Mate is there in the braille settings by adding a display but it just never selects it (keeps switching back to no display).    As I’m on Windows 10, ActiveSync install is impossible (stopped support at XP).  And google has failed me so far for any details other that the ActiveSync companion CD had some USB driver bundled with it for the device.  No sign of that driver either.

 

It just seems to be such a waste for a usable braille display that  is still serviceable as a hosted display if the PDA part is not so useful now.

 

Any pointers would be appreciated.

They are still clipped together.  I’ve been searching the BX manual and didn’t see any option to run the display without the PDA part.  A quick examination of the display only section doesn’t suggest it would support running completely stand-alone as I see no USB type A or mini B port.  The display is working with the PDA part which is running 6.2 of the environment but I haven’t figured out how to update it since I don’t have any way of connecting CF cards to my system to prepare one for an upgrade path.

 

I figured they would flatly deny support since it is so old.  This came from an era of proprietary  USB protocols so I am expecting to need some sort of USB driver.

 

I did manage to find it in the Device Manager in control panel.  It’s listed under Other Devices under its name but doesn’t know much about it and says there is no driver for it.

 

“Device status: The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)”

An interesting twist.  The issue occurs on my Dell laptop but not on my HP desktop.  Both running Windows 10 and JAWS 2021.  Laptop is using spring 2020 Windows 10 and desktop fall edition of Windows 10.

Other than that systems are close in processor and memory. Both utilize on board sound cards however desktop has some memory dedicated to audio.

I thought it was my computer. I’ve been hearing a click now and then, not necessarily with mail only but with several programs I’m using. It isn’t annoying, but it can be distracting when you’re wondering if something is wrong. What I’m hearing sounds more like a tiny pop or tap.

 

(I would have never admitted it until others mentioned it.)

Hi, all.  Ever since updating to the latest update to Jaws 2021, whenever I launch Outlook 365 on my desktop pc and my laptop pc from the desktop shortcuts, I hear a click when Outlook opens.  When Outlook opens I hear a click when the words opening Outlook is spoken.  I tried a Jaws repair on both machines and the click sill persists.  This anomaly is not annoying but it is noticeable.  I am running Windows 10 h2 pro on my desktop pc and Windows 10 h2 home edition on my laptop.  I am using my preferred Eloquence synthesizer.  Thanks.
