Tech News and Commentary

Dave and Chris discuss Zuckerberg’s view on Ai development, an internet speed record, the growth of budget-friendly smartphones and feature phones, researchers from the University of Tokyo unveiling a humanoid robot face that they made from living human skin grown in a lab (see the photo below), and more.



Joe in Hazleton, Pennsylvania asked: “I have a problem with Outlook 2016. I have Windows 10 and I use Jaws 2020 – that’s a screen reader – I’m blind. Darn Microsoft 2016 keeps asking for the password for my e-mail every time I open the e-mail program. And the box to remember the password isn’t checked, so I check it. But a few minutes later, it still asks for the password. What the heck is wrong with that? I could use the new Outlook for Windows but I don’t like that because it doesn’t have a spell checker. Newer isn’t always better. I’m really frustrated with it.”

Joe, the last Windows 10 version will reach end of life in 2025 but Outlook 2016 reached it in 2020.

That means that Microsoft hasnt done any work on Outlook 2016 for years now and its likely that some Windows update changed the way something works in a way that wouldve required Outlook to be updated as well to continue to work as it used to.

Theres no real fix to that on closed source software like Outlook other than to upgrade.

The good news here is that the current version of Outlook should allow you to turn on spell check.

Youll find it under File, then Options, and under Mail youll find Spelling and Autocorrect settings.

Webmail typically also includes spellcheckers, so it may be another option to consider.
