Safely remove nay only come up if write caching is in use. Just make sure nothing is writing to the drive and pull it. If that freaks you you then use sleep mode that will stop writes and clear the cache.

hi,
is there any script files for the casper 10 program?
thanks in advanced.
windows 7 64bit jaws 19
it is hard to figure out. i got the main menu working by defineing the menus as
buttons. jaws says the menu is black on white. setting this color does not
give me the results i need.
there is also some blue menus on the screen. when i add this color jaws will
speak both colors even when i am not on that part of the screen.
but i couldn't get this to work useing color enhancements. but when i do this
jaws will speak both the black on white and the blue text on the screen at the
same time.

the pull down menus are blue

If you want MS Office cheap on a DVD, go to eBay. A single PC license of the professional version that includes Access is $84 and a two PC version is $104. The license lasts forever, unlike the $70 a year for Office 365. That’s $140 for just two years and $210 for three years.

Just to clarify what you mean below, in fact "Access 2016" *does* come with Office 2016. Recently, I purchased on eBay for $65 an authentic DVD of MS Office 2016+ Professional (2 PC Install). It has Access 2016.

Re: Is Edge usable as a browser with JAWS?

 

If you use Jaws 2019 (Jaws 2018 also works) Edge is very useable and I suggest you simply give it a try. I still prefer Chrome because there are a few things which are still not supported in Edge such as auto forms mode for example and it's too verbose for me.

Subject: Re: pros and cons of Office 365

If you want MS Office cheap on a DVD, go to eBay. A single PC license
of the professional version that includes Access is $84 and a two PC
version is $104. The license lasts forever, unlike the $70 a year for
Office 365. That’s $140 for just two years and $210 for three years.
If you get Office 365, Microsoft has effectively turned you into a
surf.

Another con for Office 365 is the possibility of being removed from
the service and having all your files deleted without notice. Section
I of the MS services agreement tells users “Don’t do anything
illegal.” This would mean that if you told a friend you smoked a
joint of marijuana, you violated the services agreement and can have
your account suspended. This is because while the substance is legal
in some states, it is still illegal on the federal level. Even if
someone were using marijuana to cure themselves of cancer, Microsoft
doesn’t care. The person was committing an illegal act and therefore
has violated the services agreement and deserves to be banned for
life. Another doozy is in section vii of the services agreement.
Microsoft tells users to “Don’t engage in activity that is harmful to
you, the Services, or others.” Microsoft gives obvious examples of
nasty and destructive behavior like transmitting viruses, stalking,
and posting terrorist content. Another example listed refers to
“communicating hate speech, or advocating violence against others.”
The second provision would be extremely troubling if you are a gun
owner and possess firearms for personal defense. Advocating for gun
rights, stand your ground laws, and laws that eliminate any duty to
retreat from an attacker could be considered by some as advocating
violence as the person would be using lethal force in defense of his
life. Using violence in self-defense is perfectly legal, but it is
still advocating violence, according to some on the left. The
technology industry has removed many thousands of people from
Web-based services, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube over
issues of hate speech, which the companies never define or explicitly
describe. Recently, large numbers of Google Docs users found
themselves locked out of their account because an automated system
determined they had used the software to create unspecified material
that the company considered hate speech. Those blocked include
academic scientists and business owners who insisted nothing of a
controversial or political nature was stored on Google’s system. The
company later acknowledged that a staff programmer made a change to an
algorithm that created many hate speech false positives. If you were
to buy an Office 2016 DVD, your access to Access, Word and other
Office programs will never be denied for grounds of simply having a
political opinion, or someone’s arbitrary determination of hate speech
or engaging in illegal activity of a law you knew nothing about.

Hello,

I'm using Windows10 and Jaws 2018. I was looking to switch to Office 365. I
need to start using Access. I'm looking for the most cost effective way to
get Access. I either go to Office 365 and pay the $70 per year for the
personal version. Or purchase a stand alone Access 2016 for $129. What are
the pros and cons of using office 365?

Cheers,

Kevin












Re: pros and cons of Office 365

Kevin Meyers <kevinmeyers@...>
 

Thanks for the suggestions. Actually I jus want to get Access 2016. That doesn't come with Office 2016. I will look on Ebay and other places to see if I can find a cheaper price than $129.

Yep, all good points that people should generally be aware of.

I got my copy of Office 2016 for $40.
Oh, and in case all that oneDrive storage is an incentive for you -- be aware too that the service has had a number of reported unexpected outages.

Re: Thunderbird: is there a single hot Key to get to the nexe unread message?

 

Gerald,

          You are indeed correct.  A quick web search on "Thunderbird keyboard shortcuts" turns up the mozilla help page for same as the first result.  Here's a copy and paste of the pertinent section:

Moving between messages  
Go to Mail Start Page Alt + Home
Scroll Down Current Message, then Go to Next Unread Message Space
Go to Next Message F
Go to Previous Message B
Go to Next Unread Message N
Go to Previous Unread Message P
Go to Next Unread Thread (and mark current thread as read) T
Go to Next Viewed Message ]
Go to Previous Viewed Message [

I just started using Thunderbird myself, but I think pressing "N" and "p" go to the next and previous unread message, respectively.
