I just got a new copy of JAWS 17 and got somewhat of a surprise,
as the 20 character authorisation code, had No Number signs or
spaces for Letters; so, I had to contact the local Veteran Blind
Orientation Specialist, who issued that copy, to get that correct
Once the Authorisation code was received; I had to Dymo label
that code, on the JAWS 17 CD package, as what I had received from
Freedom Scientific, was so poorly Braille labelled.
Now, the next predicament that was encountered.
I have a Gateway desktop CPU, with Windows7, with JAWS 14; and I
inserted the JAWS 17 Program disc, yet I had forgot that a
Comcast rep had changed the POP 3 setting to IMAP, without
changing the advanced numeric settings; consequently, I can't
access the Internet, to get Authorisation for the JAWS 17
Question 1; at the start menu; how do I gain access to where the
POP 3 / IMAP Email/Internet setting are located on the Gateway
CPU; so I can put the POP 3 setting back; so I can upload the new
JAWS 17 version.
Question 2; Should I consider using the IMAP setting; and if so;
what are the correct numeric settings?
The reason I had a Comcast rep come out; was that Emails I was
receiving from Comcast, concerning their X-infinity new Talking
TV Remote; and when I would download emails from them; to a
Humanware Apex, I was receiving unreadable/unaudible Emails, as
if it was in nothing but, characters and foreign lingo garbage.
I am trying to locate a audio text format copy of David Pogue's
book, titled; Windows10 The Missing Manual. I got the NLS /
Talking Books Library's, audio book; yet I am after a E-text
format copy of this book. I won't try listening to the audio
book, and transcribing into a Braille format; nor will I get a
text copy of the book to scan it, to get the wanted CPU text
version, for easy access.
Any and All assistance, would be Valuably Appreciated.
