Hi Howard
I have that program installed on my lap top and desk top
I have the KuKu sound that chimes every hour.
I open the icon and I usually tab around to find it. I have it in my system tray for easier access to me.

Subject: [TechTalk] Clock Sounds

Some time ago, I must have downloaded a program called Clock Sounds. Today, I installed it. Now it seems to start whenever I start Windows. It makes sounds like the British Big Ben on the hour. It simply starts and runs. There doesn't seem to be a way to configure it to play the different types of chimes that came with it or play on the quarter hour.


Wonder if anyone else has played with this program?


Thanks.

Once you click on the link, you should be taken directly into the app and into the meeting. You'll need to click on something that says, "Call with device audio." Once you do that, you should be in. You should be able to mute yourself, raise your hand, and view a list of participants. I hope this is helpful.

Trouble Getting a Word Count in Libre Office

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,


I'm trying to get a word count in a document using Libre Office 6.2.5, the most recent update I see for the Main installation,  on my up-to-date Windows 10 laptop using latest version of NVDA I found.  When I try opening Word Count in the written document, I only see Document Recovery dialogs.  It doesn't seem to matter whether I discard or start and finish recovery of the selected file, even in starting as safe mode.  Anything else I should try, or should I just give up and use Jarte?


Thanks for any input I can get,

Victor, you do have a point. However, I'm a store owner working by myself.
Occasionally, I get help in making sure that items are properly arranged on
the shelves. However, my sighted helpers do move stuff absent-mindedly into
wrong slots. Now I must LABEL EVERY PRODUCT in Braille for easy
identification, and to make it easy for me to put items back in their
correct slot when it has been moved inadvertently. Using a stylus, yes,
I'll get it done at last, but I may need to bring me a bed and a couch to
the store, <LOL>!

If I can play with the Six Dot Braille Labelmaker prior to purchase, I'll go
that route. I listened to a Blind CoolTech demo on Logan Tech's website and
it seemed that the guy doing the demo hit some snag. I don't need the
QWERTY anything, just the regular Perkins keyboard will suffice.

That's exactly what I'm going to do. I had my right wrist fused three years ago, so it's not too easy anymore, but for labels, and close to $800.00, I'll manage just fine!.

I know that most of us are slower using a slate and stylus then we are using a braille keyboard, but maybe it would be best to use a slate and stylus with the right kind of labeling tape for whatever you need. On another list I’m on, there are people who use a slate and stylus to label things.

Ha, ha dear sis; you may need to save those pennies for two 'cause I might
borrow one from you permanently. At $775? I don't know if I should label
anything in Braille anymore, yikes!!

Before we shell out those pennies, how about we take advantage of their
four-month trial? Hopefully they'll let us get a jolly ride in that regard.

Re: Using Zoom Meetings on Windows 10

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi Sharon,

If you need to download the desktop Win 10 version of Zoom, use this link:
https://zoom.us/support/download

I think the download will start automatically. After you install it,
whenever you click on an invitation link it will open the desktop app. I
don't know what screen reader you use, but I use Jaws and the app layout is
easy to understand and navigate. Everything is labelled so you can tell what
button you're on and the instructions for speaking, etc., should be within
the app. At least that's where I found them. You may want to join the
meeting or class as early as possible so you can get used to the layout of
the app. Just tab around and everything you need should be right there.

HTH Norma

Re: Braille labelers

Victor
 

It’s too bad these are so expensive! I have had to label many things at one sitting in the past and a braille labeler with a Perkins style keyboard would have been very helpful.

Two bells will work; one won't always. They can be small, but you can be sure with two.

Why don’t you try tying a small bell to her collar. This way when she moves it will jingle and you will be able to hear where she is that. Otherwise the only other thing I can think of is possibly putting some kind of sensor by the door that will make some kind of a beep when she goes in and out.
Hope this helps,

Re: Sounds for doggie door

What if you don't want a bell on the dog?  Why not attach a bell to the dorr.  You could proprly attach it, that is, through carpentry, or you could, I would think, use something like duct tape to tape a frame of some sort that the bell is attached to.
