Hi,

Try this.

Press Windows key and then I.

You should hear Settings.

Tab once to System.

Press enter.

Tab once and then arrow down to Notifications and Actions.

Press enter.  You will see many apps with buttons you can press the space bar to toggle.

One of these should be outlook.  My guess is that by default, it is on.

When you hear Outlook button on, press the space bar to toggle it off.

Then alt f 4 to exit from settings.

This should fix your problem.

Subject: E-Mails are Interrupting Me

 

Dear Listers:

 

Yesterday my technician, while working on my computer, accidentally did something which has caused JAWS to read aloud an e-mail message every time it comes in, regardless of whether I am in Microsoft Outlook or not.  I may be writing a letter or addressing an envelope, and all of a sudden JAWS starts reading an e-mail message to me aloud and interrupting whatever I am doing.  Is there a way I can stop JAWS from doing this?  Microsoft Outlook is my e-mail carrier.  I am using Windows 10 and the latest update of JAWS 2020.

 

Thank you all for any help or advice you can give.

moderated Accessible electronic password managers being used?

 

Hi List,

 

I'm preparing a presentation for late September where I'll discuss electronic password managers. While I intend to focus on KeePass, I also want to mention any others that folks are successfully using. The only criteria is that they be accessible and work both with a computer and a portable device. Another person will be presenting on 1Password so if anyone can offer other recommendations meeting my criteria, I would very much appreciate it.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.

While in Outlook, Press alt+f then t for options.

Arrow down once to mail and start tabbing.

My guess is that the desktop message or whatever it is called got checked, and possibly other things in there.

Hi. Some one on the audio games net site did have windows 8.1. talking win pe.

Where do I download it. Got the windows 7 talking pe, and then when I try to install via my external drive, says the file  is incompatible.

Can any one help. So either need the windows 8.1 or the windows 10 talking iso. Did try setting up the blind help project, and got the 64 bit version. And then waited for five or ten minutes. No speech came up. With the win 7 version, it does come up. So need this either for 8.1 or 10. Any one got this.

Sorry.

Have tried googling. And also how do I contact the owners of the audio games site. Did try to contact them, but they either don’t have an e-mail address or a form.

If you use a standard WPE, it it is unlikely, that Narrater will be available.

Whereas, if you use Brian Smart's Windows 7 TWPE or Carlos's (I am sorry I do not remember his last name), Windows 10 TWPE, you get NVDA, with Eloquence built in.

You can do many things, when you use a WPE or TWPE

Completely erase a system drive, which, obviously, you could not do, if you wer running a session of Windows.

You can use a 3rd party software package to restore a backed up image of a system drive, created by, for example, Macrium or Image for Windows, again, you cannot do that, if you are in a Windows session.

2 examples of why you need to use, a WPE or, a TWPE or, something else, which allows you to do certain things,outside the constrictions while any operating system is running.

Marvin,
If it does not come up talking, try plugging in a thumb drive with NVDA, and try a few drive letters in the run window, like:
e:\nvda\nvda
or f:\nvda\nvda
You just need to put a portable copy onto a thumb drive in a folder called NVDA.

if JAWS is set to load as a service after Windows starts (JAWS is found in the system tray):

insert+j calls the UI for JAWS.

the first item should be the options submenu.
either press enter or the right arrow to open.

if JAWS is set as an application (JAWS is found in the task bar (alt+tab keystroke)):

insert+j calls the UI for JAWS. then press alt to activate the menu bar.
the first item should be the options submenu.

Hi,

Actually, one can upgrade from Windows 7 to 8/8.1 through an in-place upgrade unless the product key is for a different edition. I concur with Brian: Windows 8.1 support ends in 2023, and beyond that point, Windows 10 is the way to go. This begs the question: did your friend tell you their reasons for not upgrading to Windows 10 for free?

Cheers,

There is no upgrade path from Windows 7 to Windows 8, and never has been.   It must be installed from scratch, and you must acquire a license key for it.

The only free upgrade path was from Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 to Windows 10.

Personally, unless they're paying you, I'd refuse to install Windows 8.1 at this point.  It makes absolutely no sense to do so.

If you have an actual disk installer of the actual version you need, you just need to inject the boot.wim and install.wim into the proper folder in the WainPE you are trying to use.
You can find those two files on the current win 10 winPE that you are currently working with, and those are the two files that you need from a copy of what you are hoping to install.
