    ACCESSIBLE WORLD TEK TALK PRESENTS RICK HARMON TO DISCUSS INSTALLING AND 
USING WINDOWS LIVE MAIL, APRIL 18, 2011

 

NEWSWIRE:               

 

On Mon        day, April 18 2011 Rick Harmon will demonstrate installing and 
using Windows Live Mail 2011 that is part of the Microsoft live essentials 
package for Vista and Windows 7 users.  Windows 7 doesn't come with any email 
program installed and this has presented many challenges for blind users out 
there.  Windows Live Mail 2011 is just 1 of the possible email clients that can 
be used on Windows 7.

 

Rick will talk about installing and configuring the program for use and then 
will discuss in detail the ribbon that the program uses instead of the old 
style menus used in the earlier versions of the program.  He will also let 
everyone know the pros and cons of using the newer version of Windows Live 
Mail.  afterward, Rick will answer questions from the Tek Talk audience.
