Appleologist :

Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.

My default, pressing Option+Escape should activate the speech

Customer:

I pressed option and escape together. Nothing happened.

Appleologist :

Lets check your settings. open system preferences, Choose Dictation and speech. Check Speak selected text when key is pressed

Appleologist :

Under Speak selected text when key is pressed check box, you should see your current key option.

Appleologist :

To open system preferences, click on the apple logo in the upper left corner and choose system preferences

Customer:

It works! So, anytime I highlight a text and press option and escape, it will speak? Do I press option and escape in sequence or together.

Appleologist :

Yes to make it easier, you can press and hold down the option key and then press the escape key

Appleologist :

Was there anything els I can assist you with today?

Customer:

Do I need to open preference for speech again to signal that I am planning to use speech? or do I just close preferences, for example shut down, and return next day, open computer, highlight word paragraph, and then just do option plus escape

Customer:

yes, do we have time? This is my blog to sign in

Customer:

I have typed http//grossaninstitute.com/blog/wp-login.php and see it is not highlighted.

Appleologist :

Did you get my last response?

Appleologist :

Are you trying to log into your blog or just view it?

Appleologist :

Can you be a little more specific with your issue?

Customer:

I am trying to log into my blog. I keep getting a wrong address response and I can't log in. No problem with passwrods or identity when I use the click address I have recorded. I even went to the site from my clich through, then copied it onto the word sheet, then tried that again. when I use the click through name


http://grossaninstitute.com/blog/wp-login.php works fine. When I am at a "stranger's" computer and I type this it won't open and I get a no such address response. I am using safari at the "stranger's machine.

Customer:

I did tryo to type this


http://grossaninstitute.com/blog/wp-login.php on my own machine. No matter how I type it, won't work. But this I have here works fine. I copied this from the web sigte.

Appleologist :

So you care trying to get the log in screen and not the actual blog from a "stingers" machine. Is that correct?

Customer:

I am only interested in the log in. At my machine, this one, if I type this http://grossaninstitute.com/blog/wp-login.php it will not open and I get the no such address type answer. But if I click on the underlined address it opens fine.

Appleologist :

When I type it into my browser, it pulls up the login screen just fine. When you type in http://grossaninstitute.com/blog/wp-login.php Are you hitting enter when safari fills in the rest for you or are you typing the address to the end?

Customer:

I am typing the address to the end

Appleologist :

Ok lets try to clear some of your settings within safari. Click on safari in the top menu bar and choose preferences

Customer:

Got preferences

Appleologist :

Click on the security tab

Appleologist :

Click on remove all website data. Under block cookies, choose never

Appleologist :

Im sorry, click on the privacy tab and not security

Customer:

I have remove all website date, block cookies from third parties, limit website access to location services prompt for each website once each dayI I don't hav web search or web tracking clicked

Appleologist : Block cookies should be set to never
Customer:

Done. I guess I need to do this to use the "stranger's" machine?

Appleologist :

If you can, I would avoid using another computer that is not your own whenever you are logging into sites that require a password

Customer:

Okay. Can you send me back so I can order the monthly program?

Appleologist :

Are you referring to JustAnswer monthly subscription?

Customer:

Yes, so I can ask this type questions again

Appleologist :

Sure. You have a few options, you can come back to the site again and pay per question. Or you can subscribe monthly for a set price and ask as many questions as you wish. If you already opted into the 7 day trial, it will automatically convert into a monthly subscription. If you did not opt in at the beginning of asking this question, you can opt in in your accounts tab

Customer:

can you forward me to monthly subscription?

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
