Brian, after putting in the email and password, the 2 options before the next button were; text setup and manual.

Kurt,

         I have no idea what's occurring without seeing it.  Those instructions are quite spot on, and all the settings they use are also documented in Gmail's own help for setting up e-mail clients with Gmail.

         It has been ages, but isn't it an option in Outlook 2010 to let it do the setup for you after you give it the user name and password?   I could be confusing Outlook 2010 with Thunderbird, though, which I definitely know has an automatic setup feature for a very large number of e-mail service providers including Gmail.  I know that recent versions of Outlook do, too.  I'm just being too lazy to go through the setup process again in Outlook 2010.

Re: adding a gmail account to outlook

Hello Curt,

Bryan gave incomeing and outgoing server settings. You will be manually setting up the gmail address.

Here's a title of a tutorial by Bob Sweetman & a text file I use for reference.

tt-03-31-14-outlook-2010-and-jaws-sweetman-systems

 

Here's a document that helped me out with outlook 2010.

My hope that this is appropriate in this venue.

 

YOU

can have your primary email, Hotmail, Gmail, and more all in Outlook.

 

To add an email account:

              Open the Backstage of Outlook (ALT-F)

              Navigate to the “Account Settings” dialog and activate the button with ENTER

              You’ll find a drop down entry from within this button, press ENTER a second time to enter the Account Settings Dialog

 

The dialog contains a number of property sheets in which you can configure your email, RSS feeds and more.  For this lesson, we’re visiting the first property sheet which is for email.

 

There are a number of buttons within the first property sheet.  They include:

              New

              Repair

              Change

              Set as Default

              Move

              Change Folder

              Close

 

Since we are starting fresh with Outlook, activate the “New” button and let’s create your new email.

 

In order to add an email to Outlook, you may need the following information from your ISP:

              Email Address

              Password

              POP Server Address

              SMTP Server Address

 

Outlook can automatically configure most domains but if it has problems, you will want to have this information available.

 

Activate the New button to access the first screen of the Email Account Wizard.  This first screen has a number of radio buttons from which to choose.  Select from among:

              Email Account

              Text Messaging

              Other

 

Since we’re creating an Email account, focus on Email Account and activate the “Next” button.

 

The next screen of the wizard contains fields for the information above.  These fields include:

              Your Name

              E-Mail Address

              Password

              Re-Type Password

 

Activate the “next” button and Outlook attempts to configure the options for the account.  If Outlook experiences difficulty with a secure connection, it returns and asks if you’d like to try an unsecure connection.  You can let it try both.  If you continue to have difficulties, activate the checkbox at the bottom of the dialog to manually configure your server settings.

 

If you need to manually configure your server settings, the wizard takes you to a screen in which you can input your POP and SMTP addresses as well as your email, name and password.

 

 

 

Upon configuring your email, Outlook attempts to log on to both incoming and outgoing servers to send and receive a test email.  Outlook reports back if there are any issues.

 

If you use a POP email account, Outlook leaves the messages on the server until you manually delete them.  This can cause your online mailbox to fill quickly.  If you decide to make Outlook your default email client, you’ll want to disable this option in the “More Features” of the account configuration.

 

Open the account configuration and activate the “More Options” button.  On the Advanced property sheet, uncheck the checkbox labeled, “leave a copy of messages on the server.”  This insures your online mailbox has room for all the mail you’ll receive.

Editing an Email Account

The "Change" button of the accounts dialog is used to edit existing email account settings.  To edit an email account:

              Focus on the email account whose properties you would like to edit within the list box.

              TAB to "properties" and press the SPACEBAR.

 

The settings for the email account are opened in which you can change your name, email address, incoming/outgoing server, etc….

 

In addition, you can access the “more settings” button through which additional settings for the account are configured.

 

This “More Settings” button opens a dialog with a number of property sheets through which additional options may be configured.  The property sheets within this dialog include:

              General

              Outgoing Server

              Connection

              Advanced

 

Each of these property sheets contains options that can fine-tune your email account.  These options include.

 

General

This first property sheet contains the following options:

              Mail Account

              Organization

              Reply Email

 

Outgoing Server

If your outgoing server requires authentication (check with your ISP), this dialog contains options that will allow you to configure the settings for your authentication.  Use the UP AND DOWN ARROW KEYS to select from among these radio buttons.  These options include:

              My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication

              Use same settings as my incoming mail server

              Log on using – After selecting this option, TAB to the next three options and input the information acquired from your ISP.

o             User Name – Input your user name

o             Password – Input your password

o             Remember password – Outlook will remember your password when this checkbox is enabled via the SPACEBAR.

o             Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) – Outlook will log on using SPA when this option is checked.

              Log on to incoming server before sending mail – Before sending mail, log on to the incoming mail server.

 

Connection

This property sheet configures the Internet Connection within Outlook.  The options include:

 

The first field is a set or radio buttons that will allow you to select your Internet connection.  Use UP AND DOWN ARROW to select from the following:

              Connect using my Local Area Network (LAN)

o             Connect via modem when Outlook is offline

              Connect using my phone line

              Connect using Internet Explorer or a 3rd party dialer

 

The second field within this dialog is a combo box in which you can select your modem.  Two buttons will allow you to configure your modem

              Properties

              Add

 

Advanced

These settings further allow you to fine tune your settings for your account.  These options include:

 

Sever port numbers

              Incoming server (POP3) – an edit field input the alternative port for your POP3 server that was provided by your ISP

o             This server requires a secure connection (SSL)

              Use Defaults – Restores the default settings of Outlook

              Outgoing server (SMTP) - an edit field input the alternative port for your SMTP server that was provided by your ISP

o             This server requires a secure connection (SSL)

 

Server timeouts – This slider bar will determine how long Outlook waits before timing out on connection.  If your server times out too quickly, use this slider bar to increase the value.  The default is 1 minute

 

Deliver

              Leave a copy of messages on server – This instructs Outlook to leave a copy of downloaded messages on the server.  If you are accessing a single email account from two computers, you may wish to leave the messages on the server from one computer and then deleted via the other computer.

              Remove from server after (insert number) of days – Input a number of days Outlook should wait before removing messages from the server

              Remove from server when deleted from "Deleted" Items" – Check this checkbox to have Outlook remove the messages from the server when you delete them from your "Deleted Items" folder.

 

After configuring the options within this dialog, TAB to "OK" and press SPACEBAR to close this dialog.

Deleting an Email Account

Use the "remove" button to delete accounts within Outlook.  To delete an email account:

              Focus on the email account you would like to delete within the list box.

              TAB to "remove" and press the SPACEBAR

              You will be asked to verify your intentions, press ENTER to delete the selected account from your Outlook settings.

Setting a Default Email Account

The "Set as Default" button is used to select a default email account.  This is the account from which all email will be sent unless you select an alternative from the drop-down list within an email.  To set your default email account:

              Focus on the account within the list box.

              TAB to "Set as Default" and press the SPACEBAR

 

The selected account will be immediately set to your default email.

 

To close the Accounts dialog, TAB to "close" and activate the button with..

On my new Windows 10 machine, JAWS completely stops reading anything in Chrome. Each time I reboot, they work fine together, but not for more than, say, an hour. Not only won't JAWS read content, but it also can't read menus, etc. When this happens, I select the webpage's address, and even though JAWS can't read it, I can paste the copy into IE and open the page there. Since Chrome is now my default, this is a serious limitation.

This machine is solid state. I'm confident I have enough RAM, but I haven't yet figured out where I can get system information and so can't report the exact number. Windows key+pause no longer does the trick, nor does opening properties on the C drive.

Any ideas?

a test communicating to and from our new venue

Dear All, dear David,

This is another, hopefully successful, attempt to start communicating from our new venue. It appears that you need to go to login or join the new ios groups, this I did and typed my address, then I was asked for a password which I did not have, and when I sent a message with “forgot my password” I received a link to go to my account without password. There I was told my address was bouncing, but there was a link to unbounce it, it was confirmed that it had been unbounced and hence I am attempting the good job once more. Just be careful with processing, it may just need this extra step.

Re: JAWS and Chrome stop working together after a while

Mine was not maximized, sigh, so I went to the Chrome icon on the desktop, to properties, then set the beastie to maximized. It's no trouble in Windows 10 to Maximize the screen with Windows key-up arrow, but it seems not to hold and this will save me the trouble of checking with JAWS-f10. I wonder if JAWS could expand the information we get with JAWS-t to read the title bar. Window-Eyes always told us the state of the screen with the title information, so that we always had confirmation that the screen was maxed--or not! LOL.
Thanks for the suggestion about the screen. I guess I'd just assumed it was. Smile. Now we'll see if JAWS can see better! The issue is not at all consistent though, but this would be a great simple solution.

Thanks, Tyler.
As I said when I replied to JM Casey's post yesterday, this command works, but only so far. When I get down to "memory," I can't get specifics. Pressing the right arrow key, enter or the applications key does nothing. Pressing the right mouse simulator brings up a long list of devices, but no numbers. Tabbing brings up a search field, and that same long list, but no numbers.
This is a Dell machine. I wonder if it's set up differently from other manufacturers' computers. But my previous Dells did give me the information in a form JAWS could read.

Hi,

Typing windows r followed by msinfo32 will get you everything you need in a nice, easy to read list. This includes processor and ram.


Not sure what would be causing that, all of this being said. I use jaws
and chrome on a regular basis on an asus transformer book t100 from
2014, which is pretty low end with 2 gb of ram and an Intel atom z3740
processor.


Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

This is probably a useless suggestion, but are you making sure that the Chrome window is maximized. I have a hot key set to run it maximized and sometimes a Windows update will change the properties and remove the hot key.

On my new Windows 10 machine, JAWS completely stops reading anything in Chrome. Each time I reboot, they work fine together, but not for more than, say, an hour. Not only won't JAWS read content, but it also can't read menus, etc. When this happens, I select the webpage's address, and even though JAWS can't read it, I can paste the copy into IE and open the page there. Since Chrome is now my default, this is a serious limitation.

This machine is solid state. I'm confident I have enough RAM, but I haven't yet figured out where I can get system information and so can't report the exact number. Windows key+pause no longer does the trick, nor does opening properties on the C drive.

Any ideas?

David, thanks for your suggestion. The drawback is that I typically have several Webpages open at the same time. Right now I’ve followed Marie and Rebecca’s suggestions by permanently maximizing the Chrome window. So far, so good, but only time will tell. If maximization doesn’t solve the problem, I’ll close and reopen JAWS rather than Chrome.

Can you just save the web site as a bookmark, close Chrome, restart JAWS, and then open Chrome again and start over.

Sometimes, things just get locked up for a while if you use it for a couple of hours, for example!

Update on Chrome

Rebecca Lineberger
 

My Chrome disappeared again, after I’d maxed the screen.  I checked and the screen was still maxed.  I alt-f4-ed  out and came back in to Chrome.  Still gone.  I reloaded JAWS, without closing Chrome, and Chrome magically reappeared. This first started happening after Edge became accessible with JAWS, and in fact, this morning, I was reading an epub book in Edge.  Then I went to Chrome, and it was not there.   

When this first happened, months ago, I reported the issue to JAWS.  I did a JAWS repair, on the tech’s suggestion, but the problem still occurs.  Since then, on the suggestion of the tech, I’ve always brought in the updates from the website, so the program is starting from scratch, so to speak, not just being patched with the updates, if I am remembering correctly what the tech said.

MY disappearing Chrome is not consistent in when it disappears, though for me, I think, using Edge seems to cause it most often.

But I just opened and closed Edge, and then opened Chrome, and Chrome was quite happy. The fix for me, as I said, is just to reload JAWS.

Rebecca, you may be on to something with the Edge connection. Although I haven’t yet used Edge, I’ve wondered if my forays to IE are involved with Chrome’s ceasing to work with JAWS.

I just went to Bard with Edge.  I closed Bard and opened Chrome.  The page was there.  I can understand why trying to track down a problem can be quite frustrating when it can’t be easily replicated.

And Windows is always changing things too, which only makes things more interesting.  Smile.

JAWS And Chrome

Rebecca Lineberger
 

As I said in my last post, I went to Bard with Edge, closed it, and then went to Chrome.  Chrome was behaving, so I did not reload JAWS.  However, as has happened before after being on the Edge, LOL, things in JAWS can go a bit quirky.

I went to the start menu and typed

About

Just to read about my system.  I wanted to copy the information, but when I tried to virtualize the screen with JAWS-alt-w, I was told that there was no text.  I got out, reloaded JAWS, and tried again.  This time, the window virtualized as it should, and I was able to copy the information. 

It would seem that something happens with JAWS after using Edge.

Re: adding a gmail account to outlook

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Kurt,

          I believe you mean "test setup," possibly.  You are doing a manual setup if you're entering all the information yourself.

          By the way, do not use POP e-mail protocol unless IMAP is not offered.  I know of very few people who don't access their e-mail from multiple devices and unless you're very careful about how you set up POP multiple devices typically do not remain synchronized.  One of the main reasons IMAP came into existence is so that all devices would be clients looking to the mail server for storage of and access to e-mail messages.  The server does the heavy lifting.  An additional huge bonus is that all messages remain on the server until deleted and you can delete an account on one machine and recreate it, or delete it because you're getting rid of the machine and set it up on your new one and all of your e-mail is "automagically" there.

Re: adding a gmail account to outlook

Judy Jones
 

I know I am late on this thread.  I have Outlook 2010 but got my Gmail account just a few years ago.  It automatically set itself up for me, and indeed, the port numbers are 465 and 587.  Imap.gmail.com smtp.gmail.com.  On some devices I have it comes in under SSL, on others, TLS.  But in all, once I sign in with Google, it does it by itself.

Kurt,

         I have no idea what's occurring without seeing it.  Those instructions are quite spot on, and all the settings they use are also documented in Gmail's own help for setting up e-mail clients with Gmail.

         It has been ages, but isn't it an option in Outlook 2010 to let it do the setup for you after you give it the user name and password?   I could be confusing Outlook 2010 with Thunderbird, though, which I definitely know has an automatic setup feature for a very large number of e-mail service providers including Gmail.  I know that recent versions of Outlook do, too.  I'm just being too lazy to go through the setup process again in Outlook 2010.

Hi Adrian-all,

I had done all this but I got bounced but I see that I managed it at last. Just beware of the step I needed to take of joining the list on ios.groups, then I was able to unbounce mz address within my account.

Dear All, dear David,

This is another, hopefully successful, attempt to start communicating from our new venue. It appears that you need to go to login or join the new ios groups, this I did and typed my address, then I was asked for a password which I did not have, and when I sent a message with “forgot my password” I received a link to go to my account without password. There I was told my address was bouncing, but there was a link to unbounce it, it was confirmed that it had been unbounced and hence I am attempting the good job once more. Just be careful with processing, it may just need this extra step.

                                Ch           eers       to all,

                                                                Takis
