Re: Fw: Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012

 

I agree to a certain extent. I've been using WLM2012 for a long time and don't feel like changing, though Thunderbird is a good alternative. Even if the Outlook account is upgraded and compatability may break, Mozilla is sure to fix it in the next release once the issue has been discovered.


Re: Fw: Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012

 

Even I'll say that this is Microsoft trying to force people into a very narrow set of mail access options for e-mail services they own.  I wonder what's going to happen to those with any of the Microsoft e-mail accounts (outlook.com, live.com, msn.com, hotmail.com) that are using other e-mail clients.  WLM 2012 supports POP and IMAP and those two access methods are what every other e-mail client I know of, including the Win8 and Win10 mail apps, use.

This is a peculiar and stupid move on Microsoft's part.

Re: Fw: Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012

 

I have to stick to Outlook.com because it is tied to my Office 365 subscription and the user account on my Surface 3, though I have Gmail for the purpose of using Google Docks, especially in class when doing group work online.


Re: Fw: Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012

 

Wow, I think the solution to all is to switch to gmail and thunderbird and avoid thunderbird, the mail app, hmmm I don't like it and neither do those of my family on 10.

Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012. Dear User, Earlier this year we announced updates to Outlook.com that will help you collaborate with others, focus on what matters, and get more done.

Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012


Dear User,

Earlier this year we introduced a new Outl‍ook‍.‍com that will help you collaborate with others, focus on what matters, and get more done. The new Outlo‍ok‍.‍com delivers an exciting set of new experiences across web, phone, and desktop, and we’re eager for you to start using it.

It appears that you are currently using Windows Live Mail 2012 to connect to your Out‍look‍.‍com account. Windows Live Mail 2012 does not support the synchronization technologies used by the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com. When account upgrades begin at the end of June, you will no longer be able to receive email sent to your Out‍look‍.‍com account in Windows Live Mail 2012. Rest assured, you can always access your email by logging into Out‍look‍.‍com from any web browser, and you will continue to have access to all your data that is currently in Windows Live Mail 2012.

If you currently use Windows Live Mail 2012, we recommend that you switch to the Mail app in Windows to‍day. The Mail app is built in to Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, and has a more modern design. To begin using it, simply launch the app and add your Out‍look‍.‍com account.

If you are using Windows 7, you can upgrade to a newer version of Windows to enjoy the Mail app and the other benefits. If you do not wish to upgrade, you can access your account via a web browser, or, you can take advantage of a free one-year subscription of Office 365 Personal, and use Outl‍ook 2016 to connect to your account.* This Off‍ice 365 subscription also includes other productivity applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It works on Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10.

Please take action before Ju‍ne 30th, 2016, which is when we’ll begin upgrading accounts that currently use Windows Live Mail 2012. If you have more questions, please find answers to common FAQs in this help article, or you can contact Microsoft support.

We recognize that changes like this can be difficult, and apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. We hope that you’ll enjoy the benefits of moving to the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com.

Sincerely,
Outl‍ook‍.‍com team

Hi Gene,

 

When replying, the issue does not exist.  I don't see any odd characters in the place of spaces.  I am sure it is something to do with just how Thunderbird is rendering his original messages.  I have seen this a few times with some individuals located in foreign countries, so maybe it could be something to do with a font type.

Hi Rosemarie,

I hear that oddity with his messages too.  What is happening is that the spaces between words are some sort of unrecognizable character--unrecognizable to screen readers and certain synthesizers I would guess.  I think it may be because he is sending his messages from an IPhone or other IOS device.  It is interpreting his spaces between words as some sort of character.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

It's hard to know what the problem is.  It may be that there is some minor problem that causes something to be placed incorrectly in messages now and then.  But what the problem may be or what the cause is, I have no idea. 
 
At first, I thought it was an encoding problem but I don't think the space symbol or whatever indicates a space has encoding conflicts.  I suspect that something incorrect is being placed in messages now and then for some unknown reason.

Hey now!
Just get the cdfs.dll and pop it in to system32
and you can copy wave files rite from the CD using explorer.
nvda works fine with that.
Except there are no titles just track numbers.

Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

The error that sticks out for me is:
WindowsError: [Error 1775] A null context handle was passed from the
client to the host during a remote procedure call

before you tare up your computer looking for hardware reasons check the visual c++ / number instalations
I don't know how to repair them, since removeing and reinstalling doesn't seem to fix it.

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,

than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

was closed, NVDA started responding again. I also tried to activate
Narrator but it didn't work, though as I said, that didn't end up
mattering. Here's the log for that session, though I warn you, the
warning repeats itself several times. In case each warning was subtly
different, I copied the whole thing. Don't worry about the Braille error
that shows up first—that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to connect

have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to sleep. If
the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try Gene's

Hi all
thanks to whoever it was that gave me the shortcut to edit the book.
I have removed all the addresses in my book I have no use for and that is good.

If you press Ctrl and the Down Arrow or Ctrl and the up arrow, NVDA
moves by paragraph. I am not sure about the place markers though.

Most of the navigation keys you used in MS Office with JAWS are the
same in NVDA.

Thanks, Brandon,

 

Your explanation is very clear and very useful.

 

I had a go at this procedure as you describe it with little success. I suppose it has limited application then.

Hi, you should do the following:

1. Maximize the window to give the OCR engine the best chance of capturing the text
2. Use Object Nav to focus on the area where the text should be

This is not an ideal way to read PDF's. If the document has not been marked up accessibly, I am not sure what to tell you, in these cases, I have had little success. I see this more of a tool to read a screen, or part of a screen that is not accessible, or, for retrieving text in an image. There are other software solutions out there for converting PDF's into complete documents with OCR performed on them.

Hi,

 

I have just installed the OCR add-on in NVDA 2016.1 on Windows 10. I tried to read an image PDF file without success. How can I find full instructions on how to use this add-on?

 

All the best,

I don't use it all that often, and, for something like a .pdf file, with scanned pages, I would generally use pdf2txt to handle whole file, but, with add-on installed - unless I have an old version, or something, NVDA + R, then when it tells me done, switch to screen review mode, and use numpad keys to read lines, words, etc.

Stay well

how do you open Internet Explorer?  If you are going to be searching using it directly now, you may want to make a short cut key command such as control alt I to open it.  Or you may want to put the Google home page on your desktop so you can just press enter on it and have Google open in Internet Explorer.  I'm not sure of the procedure to place a web page adddress on the desktop as a short cut.

Hi, you should do the following:

1. Maximize the window to give the OCR engine the best chance of capturing the text
2. Use Object Nav to focus on the area where the text should be
3. Press NVDA Shift R to perform the OCR
4. use numpad 7 and 9 to read up and down lines respectively
