The latest JAWS update is working well for me – Windows 10 version 1903, build 18362.239.

I’ve seen some comments here and on other lists stating one should hold off on updating to the latest build of Jaws 2019? I am still being prompted to update so maybe someone from Vispero that is on this list could comment on this?

 

Thanks,

Yes WLM is working fine with gmail. I am still using the 2009 version because the ribbons in 2012 are confusing. I'm glad it does work with gmail because some of the other email programs aren't as accessible to me as this one.

I was using it but when I change my IE provider, I needed to use gmail since they did not provide email. Gmail does not work well in WLM. Now I use outlook and is OK but I prefer WLM.

WLM 2012 was a mess with Windows 7.?? Messages would constatnly get
corrupted, rendering them unopenable.?? The program itself sometimes
became corrupted and would not download messages from my ISP's server.??
Why would it work any better in Windows 10??? I got so fed up with WLM
that I switched to Thunderbird, and I'm glad I did.?? As an added
benefit, TB has a classic menu structure, not the confounding and much

7 or Windows 10.

How do I get Outlook to auto-correct typing errors?

JOHN RIEHL
 

I’m using Windows-10 and Outlook 2019. I have a number of corrections I’ve entered into Word and Outlook. Example: I often type services instead of services. I have that correction in my list of corrections. However, Outlook does not auto-correct my mistake when I’m typing an e-mail. How do I make it so that Outlook auto-corrects my typos from my list of corrections?

Thanks. John
