  1. I just want to second Hami's request here. Yesterday, I received a notification that Pocket, a straightup competitor to Evernote, will now read aloud the Notes you've saved. Given that the very impulse of saving an article to Evernote is a statement of worth or value, and given that the main impulse at work here is wanting to revisit the article, either to re-read or, more likely, to get to it in the first place, I would think the ability to have the Note read back to you is a highly attractive feature. This applies to the Long Commute crowd, or the Want to Be Reading All the Time crowd. I check both those boxes. And I would think that both are major subsets of the overall Evernote community. If I am missing something here, like the feature already exists, or 'here is a handy 3rd-party app that interacts with Evernote and will do the trick,' then I'd be thrilled to be enlightened. But the overarching spirit of this post is from someone who definitely wants to protect the Evernote franchise and who felt the announcement yesterday from Pocket was a reason to reconsider the fealty.
  2. Very helpful, and I really appreciate the elaboration for Chrome and Firefox. And regarding the way the ticket was handled, you're right that Evernote first alerted the community to the problem on the 16th of the month whereas my ticket was closed as unresolvable on the 23rd. That said, it was far more enjoyable to arrive at a solution through a forum like this, and with knowledge like yours, than to just await an answer. I learned something, and I'll be returning here often as I try to extend my knowledge of this invaluable tool. Many thanks!
  3. Folks, First-time participant here so goes easy on me if my contribution here doesn't follow the preferred protocol (I'll get it, I promise), but I wanted to confirm that the general fix described earlier - i.e, go to Internet Options in the control panel, then to the Advanced settings tab, then scroll down to Security, then uncheck the option for SSL 3 and 2 and then enable the TLS option - does indeed work, now allowing me to use the installed desktop version of this wonderful application. The sync is happening as I type this, and so long as these adjustments do not set in motion a cascade of other issues, this solution worked. By way of summary, I came to this community forum in pursuit of an answer when my trouble ticket was booted back and I was told I couldn't be helped. I then typed in the error code I was getting when I tried to connect - i.e., Cannot Connect to Server; Please Try Again Later - and followed the thread. Problem solved. I am working on a Lenovo SL500 ThinkPad running Vista for Business, using the Chrome browser, the firewall on. Many thanks!
