How to clearly read a Braille book from the BAARD app and Focus 14 Blue display?

Sharon Hooley
 

I have a Focus 14 Blue Braille dissplay. I don't know which generation, but it's probably old compared with my iPhone XR and IOS 13. I'm trying to read a Baard book in Braille, but I'm confused by a couple of things. It seems difficult or time-consuming to find where I want to read, and there are a lot of something like possibly, more, possibly, more, as I use certain buttons to scroll down. there are symbols and numbers in and around words. Is there a way to get around on a page, and is it possible to get rid of all those numbers and symbols?

Thanks for any input I can get,

Others mayhave other suggestions, but one way, which would require two keystrokes may be the following:

 

I don't use the laptop layout, but I think this would work in either layout because you are bypassing NVDA altogether.

 

Issue the command NVDA function key 2.  That is the bypass command.  The next key you press is sent directly to the computer, bypassing NVDA.  So NVDA, function key 2 followed by page up or page down on the numpad should generate the commands you want.

Re: Looking for list of basic Google Chrome commands

George McCoy
 

Here's a link to a google chrome support shortcut keys page

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/157179?hl=en

To turn off autofill, press alt plus e to enter the google chrome menus.  Up arrow three times to settings and press enter.

You'll land in the search settings edit box.  If your screen reader automatically goes into browse mode or the equivalent, exit that.

Navigate by headings until you get to the autofill heading.

there are three links, passwords, payment methods and addresses and more.

Click each link and set them the way you want.  There's a back button at the top of these dialogs that takes you back to the main settings page and the list of autofill settings link.

google the phrase google chrome keyboard shortcuts.  If you're using the google search engine, the first result is usually a list from google of all the current keyboard shortcuts.

It may be heresey to say so, but I’ve compared Realtech with two good external sound cards, both in the seventy dollar range about ten years ago.  I find Realtech audio superior.  I haven’t listened on good speakers but I have on good headphones.  And on the cheap speaker I listened on, I still liked Realtech better.  So, by all means, try other sound cards if you wish, but you may find that you agree with me.  I was curious about my findings and I found a post on an audio forum where someone else also said that on his headphones, Realtech sounds better than his external sound card.
 
That’s only two opinions but it shows that at least one other person agrees.

Haven't you ever seen and played with an actual equalizer before?
The potentiometers (the adjustable slides) on the left are for lower frequencies (bass), the ones in the middle are  going to be for midrange frequencies and the ones to the far right are for higher frequencies
(treble) and this is true for all equalizers, but how your individual ears hear is going to be different than the rest of us. So adjust them to your liking however that may turn out to be.

Yes, you can adjust the equalizer to your liking for bass which
would be 1 and Q to adjust accordingly, and 0 and P for treble.



Use the following hot keys in the WinAmp Equalizer (for JAWS users):

To open/close the equalizer, press Alt+G.

To enable/disable the equalizer after it is opened, press N.

To toggle equalizer auto-loading, press A.

To open the presets menu, press S.



To increase the equalizer bands, press 1 through 0 on Numeric Row.

To decrease the equalizer bands, press Q through P.

To increase the equalizer  PreAmp, press GROV ACCENT.

To decrease the equalizer PreAmp, press TAB.

Below is the download link for the Realtek driver with equalizer I
use when necessary to fix a Realtek soundcard problem if this problem pops
up.  Read the instruction text file before attempting the executable.  If
you don't follow the instructions you'll get an error message when trying to
install.  I use this driver for both Windows 7 & 10 64 bit Pro systems.

Gene, thanks much.  I have much respect for your opinions and I am beginning to reconsider all of my options starting today. So far I just do not know what to do about restoring Real Tech and starting all over again.  So far, all of the drivers suggested to me have done nothing but maybe cause the problem to worsen.  I really appreciate your suggestions though.

It may be heresey to say so, but I’ve compared Realtech with two good external sound cards, both in the seventy dollar range about ten years ago.  I find Realtech audio superior.  I haven’t listened on good speakers but I have on good headphones.  And on the cheap speaker I listened on, I still liked Realtech better.  So, by all means, try other sound cards if you wish, but you may find that you agree with me.  I was curious about my findings and I found a post on an audio forum where someone else also said that on his headphones, Realtech sounds better than his external sound card.
 
That’s only two opinions but it shows that at least one other person agrees.

Jeffar, If you are not using Real Tech now, what are you using if you do not mind me asking?  I am thinking of trying something different from real tech myself and so I am quite interested.

Thanks much,

Hi.  I actually have the driver in question even though I am not using RealTech anymore.  But I have kept it handy in case there is a need for it.
Here's the dropbox link:

If you face any problem installing or using it, just ask.  Cheers and Enjoy.

Smiles, you must have meant bass, not base and a pre-amp will adjust one's levels to how far or how little one would need to turn up the actual volume knob to get to the levels one would want. If you do not understand it, it's best that you just don't mess with it, but if you want, play with it all you want and just remember where it was prior to your messing with it so you can return it to the very same levels if desired.



Haven't you ever seen and played with an actual equalizer before?
The potentiometers (the adjustable slides) on the left are for lower frequencies (bass), the ones in the middle are  going to be for midrange frequencies and the ones to the far right are for higher frequencies
(treble) and this is true for all equalizers, but how your individual ears hear is going to be different than the rest of us. So adjust them to your liking however that may turn out to be.

Wow!

Trebble and base, volume and separation I know.

What are extra/other bands?

What does a preamp do?

Thanks,

Monte

Yes, you can adjust the equalizer to your liking for bass which
would be 1 and Q to adjust accordingly, and 0 and P for treble.



Use the following hot keys in the WinAmp Equalizer (for JAWS users):

To open/close the equalizer, press Alt+G.

To enable/disable the equalizer after it is opened, press N.

To toggle equalizer auto-loading, press A.

To open the presets menu, press S.



To increase the equalizer bands, press 1 through 0 on Numeric Row.

To decrease the equalizer bands, press Q through P.

To increase the equalizer  PreAmp, press GROV ACCENT.

To decrease the equalizer PreAmp, press TAB.

Can I control the trebble and bass levels using the equalizer.  My
bose Bluetooth has too much bass by itself.

Howdy,



Below is the download link for the Realtek driver with equalizer I
use when necessary to fix a Realtek soundcard problem if this problem pops
up.  Read the instruction text file before attempting the executable.  If
you don't follow the instructions you'll get an error message when trying to
install.  I use this driver for both Windows 7 & 10 64 bit Pro systems.

This should be in the same thread but with a very slightly different subject line, as you’ll see.
 
I was all ready to be admitted today, but they finally decided I can take the tests as an outpatient, which is what I told them I wanted to do.  Good sense prevailed.  So I’m finally home.

I unexpectedly have to go into hospital for what they claim will only be about two days.  A problem has arisen.  My doctors want to do tests but I think its rather minor. 
 
So I won’t be answering messages for two or three days if they release me when they say they will.
