Great suggestions! Most folks seem to do most of them most of the time. I don't care for all caps, makes it harder to read, at least for me. Thank you for posting these.
Good rules. If I want something bigger, I just go to the top left on click on view and the drop down has zoom and I just increase it.
what where are you talking about ??I need a lesson please??
I know that works with Chrome.
Carolyn, just hold down the Ctrl key and roll your mouse wheel. It enlarges or reduces the print as well as the rest of the page. It makes it so much easier to read.
Thanks for sharing. Yes sometimes I also forget and type in capitals - but not shouting.
The others I totally agree with it is so true.
I agree with Carolgm because I too have friends who need the caps, it would be silly of me to yell @ the pc but I sometimes forget that I have the caps lock on sew I will try to remember this in the future! they are very nice rules too Hugs Loralye
These are very good rules, and I agree about the caps. Having online friends with impaired vision I am quite used to reading in caps and it bothers me not one whit. So caps on ok with me. Hugs, Carol
Great Rules. As my mother allways taught me . It doesn't cost you anything to be nice to people and treat people with respect. Hugs Joyce
Amen to that:):)hugs carolyn
And then there is ME. I don't type very fast or very well, you know peck,peck,peck.Sometimes, when I have the Caps locked on, I don't notice until I look up.If I have written a lot(who me?,haha) then I don't want to start over. You get it in caps, or not at all, if I have to do over.Sorry-Toogie
Caps are ok for Lucy because she has eye problems and caps are easier for her to see.
I agree if you need it use it hugs:):)
Thank you. So very true. Hugs, Rachel
Great list of rules that I think we can all try to remember, it's so easy to type & not think how it could be interpretered.
As far as reading vision & capitals go....
Here's the funny thing., I actually find it harder to read when people type in captials.
I prefer to enlarge the page as mentioned below, so much easier to read.
Nicely said, Sherry,#2 & #6 are my favorite....
Thank you for the post AND for begining with your purpose.
Many times it seems the anonymity of the internet removes the societal rules most would have in person. This is a good list of rules.
I have some instructions that may help those struggling with vision problems.
[Not shouting just all caps for those who need help seeing the post]
IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 7 HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS TO HELP MAKE THINGS EASIER TO SEE:
CLICK THE WINDOWS CIRCLE (USUALLY AT THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER OF THE SCREEN)
JUST BEGIN TO TYPE “EASE OF ACCESS”
SELECT “EASE OF ACCESS” FROM THE LIST THAT SHOWS ABOVE
THE TOOLS IN EASE OF ACCESS ARE THERE TO HELP PEOPLE WITH VISION PROBLEMS -- LIKE THE MAGNIFIER, THE NARRATOR, AND HIGH CONTRAST OR IT MAY BE EASIER TO SELECT “MAKE THE COMPUTER EASIER TO SEE”. FOR MORE SERIOUS VISION PROBLEMS SELECT “OPTIMIZE FOR BLINDNESS”
THERE ARE OTHER TOOLS THERE AS WELL.
For those with other Windows operating systems like Vista or XP if you need instructions, let me know and I will post them for you too.
Flowers for all!
Also if you hold down your Ctrl button while moving the wheel of your mouse that makes the page and writing be smaller and bigger.
Thanks for this I did not know this and would apreciate the instructions for XP. Thank you so much Joyce
For XP click "Start" select "Control Panel" Choose “Accessibility Options” and turn on the options that help you. There is an “Accessibility Wizard” to guide you if you wish.
WE totally understand about some people needing capitals. LUCY, DON'T WORRY, WE UNDERSTAND. It is really difficult keeping a friendly tone in all our writing, and sometimes we can be misunderstood. It does help to re-read what we type before pushing submit. It just isn't worth hurting people's feelings by writing things in a way we don't mean. Thanks for these NETIquette tips :-) Jan
GREAT ADVICE EVEN WHEN SPEAKING TO A PERSON FACE TO FACE...I TYPE IN CAP LOCKS ITS EASER ON MY EYES..LUCY
lucy are your eyes bad from???Just wondering cause my hubby are are almost gone hugs
I HAVE GLOCOMA.I AM NOT TAKING MEDS YET,BUT I GO EVERY 6 MONTHES FOR EYE EXRAYS..LUCY
thanks for sharing this
Thanks for this. There are some Cuties who due to sight problems have asked us to use uppercase like LUCYPIOW which is why I use it then
There are exceptions of course. We did that for my mom too before she passed away. :)
Thanks for the post
Some great advice,I like # 4,remember once you hit that submit button it is too late.
Thank you for posting this list. I think we all sometimes lapses and forget that this is an international site where everybody else reads your input. Have a nice day.***
