Hi Lenny,
Any time we don't know how to do something in windows, we should try typing it in the search window.
So tap the windows key and type in speaker, and then down arrow to speaker controls.

Hi Lenny,
 
Open the Speaker folder in the system tray and then open the Volume mixer.  Tab through to find the soundcard and there should be a volume control for this particular soundcard there.  You could also open Playback devices and change the volume for the soundcard in question there as well.  If you don't have the Speaker icon in the system tray go to the Control Panel / Sounds link to find the, Playback tab to choose your soundcard there.

I just installed a new ex sound card to use with ear buds. They now are a wonderful ear cleaner, it blew the wax right out of my ears. How can I lower the sound for a specific sound device that I am trying to use with jaws. There is nothing on the task bar and I thought that would be only for the main sound card.

Hello,

 

Is anyone familiar with creating and/or editing forms in Microsoft Word 2016/Office 365? I’m using JAWS 2019.1904.60 on my Windows 10 machine. I know Freedom Scientific Published This Documentation, that references creating forms in Word 2007-2013, but wondering if anyone has more up-to-date material on this topic?

 

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

 

Sincerely,

Using unicode emojis?

Judy Jones
 

Hello,

 

I would like to know how to employ these.

 

I use the image ones you can paste, but not sure what to do with the Unicode ones.

 

They look like numbers and not an image, at least this is the way Jaws reads them, and not understanding how a group of digits, when typed out, don’t look like a group of digits, instead of an image.

 

Thanks for educating me.

 

I also should learn when and when not to use them.

Re: Emails

Hi Holger,
can you get them from the deleted folder?
I think people are mistaken about keeping messages in their junk and deleted folders.
Messages, unless they have attachments, take up almost nothing from your hard drive space.
A year of messages without attachments are seriously a drop in the bucket of your hard drive space.
Keeping messages is useful so you can search for messages for information, or in case you accidentally delete a message.
I have thousands and thousands of messages in my deleted and junk folders, I only permanently delete  them if they have an attachment, and once or twice a year I go in and delete them.
Hopefully you did not permanently delete them.
But to answer your question, did you copy them, or move them?
It may be safer to move them instead, because if you only copy them, Windows may assume that if you got rid of this message in this folder, you also don't want the copies.
And you can search all folders with shift + control + F with most eMail programs.

Re: Searching outlook email with W10

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi Susie,
It depends on your eMail program, but I use shift + control + F, and tab to the criteria you want.
If you make it too specific, you will get too many results.
If for example if you are looking for a message from John Smith, you would be better to search for Smith instead of John, in most cases, unless you get a lot of messages from Smiths, or if you are looking for a message from a .EDU sender, like John.Smith@..., you could look for just EDU in the from field, and if you are looking for a message with the word dog in the message, you can put that in to narrow the search.
But putting criteria in the message body slows it down, because your computer will have to read all the bodies in the eMail folders for that word.
But if you search for messages with Smith in the from field and dog in the message field, it will only read those messages which came from Smith.
HTH.

It depends on your eMail program, but I use shift + control + F, and tab to the criteria you want.

If you make it too specific, you will get too many results.

If for example if you are looking for a message from John Smith, you would be better to search for Smith instead of John, in most cases, unless you get a lot of messages from Smiths, or if you are looking for a message from a .EDU sender, like John.Smith@..., you could look for just EDU in the from field, and if you are looking for a message with the word dog in the message, you can put that in to narrow the search.

But putting criteria in the message body slows it down, because your computer will have to read all the bodies in the eMail folders for that word.

But if you search for messages with Smith in the from field and dog in the message field, it will only read those messages which came from Smith.

I was about to search for anything within my inbox or any other folder. Something changed about a year ago. What is the best way to find an email from a specific sender?

Hi, Suzie,

 

From the inbox, or whatever folder you want to search, I shift-tab to the search field, and enter the sender’s name, or some search string distinctive to the e-mail.  Then tab back to the inbox or whatever folder you are wanting to search.

Hi, Susie,

 

I am using Outlook 10, so the 365 may be different.

I am using outlook 365. It had question after question. Will the results simply come up? It even wanted to start over.

I've never used that eMail program, but if it is like regular outlook, you will have criteria, and you can jump to the one you want, like alt + U for subject may work for jumping right to the subject field.
But you will get better at searching your messages and it will become quite efficient once you get used to the options and the hotkeys.
