You can probably bring up Default Apps just by typing the word default into the search box, by pressing the Windows key. Then check if Office 365 or Outlook is your default email program.

Mine's Google Chrome as well. Sounds like you need to set another browser to work with Outlook.

I think this suggestion might have appeared on the JFW Users list, but someone told me of another way to get the sender’s e-mail address.

 

When in an open message, press alt 1 twice.  This takes the information in the From field, including the sender’s e-mail address,  and copies it onto the clip board.

 

Then, when in your e-mail reply, you can paste the sender’s address  into the “to” field, and go from there.

 

It’s kind of round-about, but it does work.

 

Also, I do not have Edge set as my default internet browser.  Currently, it is Firefox, but I am leaning more and more to switching over to Google Chrome.

 

I wonder what you use as your main internet browser?

 

Once again, I’m using Jaws 2020 on this Windows 10 computer.

Hi, Tom. Neither of the two ways you mentioned for retrieving the sender's email address is always effective. What I do is to start Outlook, (this is what I use), open the message in question, and press ALT plus F, followed by the letters i, then V. After doing this, you can TAB over to where it mentions headers. The sender's email address is there, but you must arrow up and down through the information, or in some cases, tab through the information. You will know the correct line, because it will say the word "from" at the beginning of the line. The word from will not have the quotes around it. After the word from will be the person's email account name in quotes, followed by their email address enclosed in less than and greater than brackets.

 

The other problem you are having is that you don't have Outlook set to use your default Internet browser, so your links are opening up in Edge. Since I'm not using Office 365, I cannot tell you exactly where to go within Outlook to set it to use your default browser.

 

The other thing I may suggest is to make sure that Edge is not currently your default Internet Browser.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am on a number of groups.io e-mail lists, and I used to be able to retrieve the original sender’s e-mail address from a message, if I wanted to respond just to that individual.

 

I used to be able to do this in two ways:

 

1.  I could do an insert shift R, but that no longer works.  I now consistently get a message that says “cannot retrieve  sender’s address”.

 

Or

 

2.  On most groups.io e-mail lists, there is a link for “reply to sender”.  However, when I access this link, I get put into some sort of a Microsoft Edge mail app that I cannot figure out how to navigate.

 

I’m using Windows 10 with Office 365 Outlook e-mail here, with the latest build of Jaws 2020.

 

Thanks for any help.

There's a reason I suggest NOT using a screen-reader dependent method to assign a column of row titles, or a row of column titles, when the ability exists in Excel itself, and every screen reader I have worked with allows you to toggle on/of the reading of a column title when switching columns or row title when changing rows if such are defined in the spreadsheet.

And if you've filled your cells across a respective row with what you want as your column titles, or down your column with what you want as your row titles, it's simple to set up in Excel.

What I do, and maybe this is more work, but it seems to be consistent.

Hit alt+1 twice quickly to focus the from field.

Hit the application key or shift+f10 and arrow down to select all and press enter.

Hit the application key again, arrow to copy and hit enter.

What I got with this message is:

main@jfw.groups.io; on behalf of; Bill White <billwhite92701@...>; (main@jfw.groups.io via groups.io)

Obviously, you have some editing to do after that, but it works.

Hello Group,

 

Earlier today, I received some assistance in locating the previous library link within my overall Music library, subgroup, iTunes. In this regard, I was able to identify and recover the playlists that has disappeared from my iTunes library.

It’s almost as if there’s a little iTunes wizard who targets those of us who don’t purchase songs from iTunes, yet use the platform to create and build a music library, securing songs from other sources outside of iTunes and this wizard, in reprisal, just removes specific tracks, as they choose. Sounds like the Twilight Zone: a show that I grew up with and still watch in re-run.

 

Best to all, Justin .

Hello everyone:

The other day, I accessed a web site, which on the whole, was very
accessible.

Unfortunately, there were 2 problems. the first, was the link, which took
you to the shopping basket page. This link had no text label, to tell a user
of a screen reader the purpose of the link. The link is a standard HTML
coded link.

the second is a standard HTML button, which also does not have a text label.
This button is for removing an item from the shopping basket.

My question is, is there a way within JAWS, where you can attach labels to
specific links and buttons on an individual web site?

The link and button on this web site are not graphics

Thanks in anticipation.

Subject: Using JAWS to create a label for a button on a web site, which has
no text label

Hello everyone:

The other day, I accessed a web site, which on the whole, was very
accessible.

Unfortunately, there were 2 problems. the first, was the link, which took
you to the shopping basket page. This link had no text lable, to tell a user
of a screen reader the purpose of the link. The link is a standard HTML
coded link.

the second is a standard HTML button, which also does not have a text label.
This button is for removing an item from the shopping basket.

My question is, is there a way within JAWS, where you can attach labels to
specific links and buttons on an individual web site?

The link and button on this web site are not graphics

Thanks in anticipation.

in the drop box preferences you have to tell it to use the windows file explorer or else the files and folders in the main dropbox desktop folder will not talk.
this may apply to your own shortcuts you created in your own folders. i don't know.

Hi again – different problem from feedback loop issue. I have shortcuts on my desktop to several folders. I find it is the quickest way to get to regularly visited folders. They haqppen to be DropBox folders, but I don’t think that should matter. The problem is that when I open the folder from the desktop, Jaws says nothing. I would expect the focus to land on the first item in the item list and Jaws would say “unselected” followed by the name of the item. But it doesn’t say anything. I have to arrow down or say line to figure out where I am. This just started happening on this new laptop I’m using, Lenovo Think pad P53 running Windows 10 and Jaws 2020. I think it also happened with Jaws 2019. Thoughts? Thanks.

Hi Justin,

Rember that playlists as well as your entire music library are just links to actual files on your hard drive.

So, the library or playlist can be recreated.

However, after saying that, in your User folder, in the Music folder, there should be an iTunes folder. In there you may find the playlist you are interested in.

 

Is it a playlist, or your entire library that is no longer there?

How many files were in the playlist your lost?

Hello Group,

 

To clarify my post from earlier today,I am looking to recover a fairly extensive playlist that is no longer in my Itunes library, stored on my Windows Pc.

What I want to do is to access a library from some months ago before the playlist was deleted, though how it got deleted is an Itunes mystery, or fault of the program.

Again, if there is anyone who can assist in this recovery, I would appreciate your help.

 

Best, Justin

Same here, and no surprise.  Data collection and mining is absolutely everywhere.  Those loyalty cards at grocery stores, pharmacies, etc., are for the same sort of data collection.
