You may also want to go through and uninstall the other parts of the Freedom scientific programs that got installed with it.

Press control O and paste in the download link. In IE  you will probably
have to press F6 to go to the notification bar to confirm whether you want

After this however if you alt tab away from IE you will not be, unlike the

moderated Problem With Editing, Saving, And Sending A Message In Outlook Drafts Folder

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

I’ve noticed an interesting issue with my drafts folder in Outlook 2016.

 

Currently, I’m using Outlook 2016 with Office 365 on this Windows 10 computer.

 

Once I save a message in my drafts folder, I am unable to edit and then save  it.

 

When I work on the message, and then attempt to save it, I get the following message:

 

The item cannot be saved because it was changed by another user or in another wwindow.

 

I’m then asked if I want to make a copy of the message in the ddefault folder.

 

I’m not sure how to answer this latter question.

 

Also, when I try to send the draft message, I get a response that says that the operation cannot be performed because the message  has been changed.

 

I’m not sure what is going on here.

 

How can I get things back so that I can actually edit, and then send a message in the drafts folder like we used to be able to do in earlier versions of Outlook?

 

Thanks for any help on this issue.

 

Tom Behler

If the other answer wasn't what you needed then this is the answer to your question:
go to the install file you downloaded then right click on it and select copy path.
Now open the run command, window plus R.
paste the file path then delete the quotes and then put a space after it and type /repair
example:
E:\Utilities\Windows\J2019.1810.64-any.exe /repair

I have an eye report that was written by my eye doctor and I think in his clinic, he uses One note 2007. I'm using One note 2016. and I want to know how to convert a 2007 file to the current so I can read it on my 2016 version of One note.

moderated Re: Resources list

It is a fair point I guess about the deteriorated accessibility of the Windows iCloud app.
I agree that some cautionary comments need to be added.
Because I used it when accessibility was better I want to keep it myself.

I don't think it is completely unusable but it is certainly not as easy as it used to be.
I still use it as once it is set up you can pretty much forget about it and it is invaluable in transferring content to iOS devices via iCloud Drive. In particular using it to send content directly into the Voicedream Reader library is valuable.
How about something like this for clarifying comments.
The accessibility of the iCloud Windows app has regrettably deteriorated in recent versions.
The following may help.
You can tell with Jaws OCR that the first checkbox relates to sync with Outlook for Contacts, Calendars and Tasks. Check here with the space bar if you want iCloud to sync with your copy of Outlook.
On the iCloud Main screen there are also 2 accessible options buttons - if you press enter on these then it becomes clear what the options relate to in each previous check box.
The first set of options relate to synching photo.
Hit the space bar on the preceding checkbox if you want iCloud to manage synching of photos across devices.
The second set of options relate to synching of favourites from Internet Browsers. You will be able to specify which of your installed browsers have their favourites synched across devices in the options dialogue box.
Check the checkbox prior to this option if you want to sync Bookmarks.

HI all,

We discussed a resources list last month, I've been working on a site for a client recently and have added this page to their site. It can be found at: https://rogercusson.com/resources/. I'm still updating the list, so as many URL's as I've been able to find as of now are loaded.
I've also removed the categories listing as I didn't find it necessary.
I will be reorganizing the list to have all apps "included with windows"
in the same section, most likely at the bottom of the list as they won't have URL's. I look forward to updating this list as more resources are approved by the group.

If I missed anything, or anyone wants to add to the other lists on the page, please do let me know, I'll gladly update!

Thanks,

Sarah

My company used to use the physical RSA token and I couldn’t read it as my vision got worse and I would have to ask for sighted assistance when working from home.  We then moved to a virtual process. I cannot recall how this worked.  Within the last year, we moved to a process where I have an app on my phone and the code is presented there.  You can also receive a phone call with the code.  Maybe this approach is an option for you.  I was anxious about it at first, but the app reads fine with VoiceOver on my iphone.  I read the code then enter it into the dialog that appears on my laptop.

For systems in my company, we use a means of authentication called the SecureToken, a physical device where you enter a six-digit code that is subject to change every thirty seconds. In the workplace, what is known to work best with JAWS, since I will not be able to see the code displayed on the SecureToken’s screen?

My company used to use the physical RSA token and I couldn’t read it as my vision got worse and I would have to ask for sighted assistance when working from home.  We then moved to a virtual process. I cannot recall how this worked.  Within the last year, we moved to a process where I have an app on my phone and the code is presented there.  You can also receive a phone call with the code.  Maybe this approach is an option for you.  I was anxious about it at first, but the app reads fine with VoiceOver on my iphone.  I read the code then enter it into the dialog that appears on my laptop.

Hi,

 

For systems in my company, we use a means of authentication called the SecureToken, a physical device where you enter a six-digit code that is subject to change every thirty seconds. In the workplace, what is known to work best with JAWS, since I will not be able to see the code displayed on the SecureToken’s screen?

 

Thank you,

Mike

Recently I’ve found that I can’t turn on descriptive video service (DVS) on CBC TV programs via internet.  I used to use JAWS key and z.  Now that toggles visual cursir on and off but no DVS.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks.

Jaws Key + Z always toggled the virtual cursor on and off as far back as I can remember.

If the CBC uses this as a shortcut then have you tried it after using pass key through? This would be Jaws Key + 3 on the number row, then immediately afterwards without pressing anything else press Jaws Key + Z.

If this doesn’t work give me a better example of where you go and what you used to do and I can take a look.
