I didn’t realise the archive was also gone. That’s pretty bad; there were years and years of data there.

JM,

          My central point being, if you want to walk away from list ownership, that's fine.  But you can do that without literally taking it offline.

          It's a simple matter to either lock the list and walk away if you want to encase the current content of the archive in amber and have it accessible for others (or at least members, if it was a private list) to search or to announce that you're walking away and the list is now unmoderated, making sure you throw open the permissions before you head out the door.

           Either of those is a more decent and reasonable thing to do than just closing up shop and blowing it up.

The fire stick is the latest version with the Alexa remote so you can talk to it. The Sampson is a new 32 inch Samsung smart TV. Both are easy to use.  the Roku is just an old Roku I don't know probably first gen.

Hi Bill, I've used audio description with Netflix successfully without issues on Samsung smart TV, Roku and Amazon fire stick. On All but the Roku I used voice feedback. on the Roku someone else did it. It  was an older one that Didn't have voice feedback but it still work for audio description.

Always search the Freedom Scientific site.  There are generally, and definitely are in this case, webinars and other documentation.   I just searched using the two keywords JAWS and Word in the search box and there's lots of material there, you just need to sift through and look at what's relevant to you.

Free MS-Word with JAWS Webinar

Free Improving JAWS Skills in Word Webinar

There are downloadable documents associated with these, and they're only two things I found on the first page of search results at the FS site.
