need cd help

heather albright
 

Hello, I have more cds that I want to put on my pc as mp3s. However, I have not done this for a long time, long time. The last program I used was easy cd creator, I think like 4 or 5 version back in 2010 or 2011.I think it was a paid program and does not work with windows10.

So I did not like the windows utility to burn cds in to mp3s. Is there another program that one can suggest. I find the windows version turns it in to tracks, not mp3 files. Maybe I did not use the utility program that comes with 10 right. Thanks Heather

DAVID GLOBE
 

Is it possible to set up a laptop to rechord your favorit tv shows, without using a microphone?  I would like to try to rechord without it picking up the noise of the room.

Hi Dave,
 
Try checking to see if the reading of, Tool Tips, got turned on by mistake.  Settings / Object presentation and Tool tips is the first option in this category.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Subject: [TechTalk] NVDA talking too much

Hello,


I have been using NVDA on a Win 10 System for a while now, and in the
last couple of weeks, NVDA is talking too much.


Actually, NVDA will just start speaking Odd Ball things, where there is
no Cursor, or even any Focus.


Yesterday, NVDA would suddenly read the Action Center Notification
Button. And NVDA would do this about every 10 to 30 seconds.


Before that, during another session of Windows, it might start reading
the Time, or some other obscure line on the screen that normally never
is read at any time.


I don't know if I have accidentally changed something in NVDA, or in
Windows, but I sure would like to shut this random reading off.


I have two other systems, one at home and one at work, both running Win
10 and NVDA, I they both read and work fine. It is just this one System
that is reading stuff that isn't even on the screen.


I could have another program running, covering up what is getting read,
and still, Action Center was Read, the Time was Read, A Slider Bar Value
would be read, Weird stuff. Driving me Nuts!


Anyone have a solution?


Thanks,


Grumpy Dave








Victor Reader Stream.

Carolyn Arnold
 

I have two Victor Reader Streams. They are the most recent
models. The newer of the two always says, "please wait,"
when I turn it on. I would like to know why and if there is
anything I can do to stop that. It is not a big thing, but
just a small, but continuing annoyance. I do not think it
did that, when I first got it. I feel sure it is something
that I have done, but I cannot figure out how to undo that.

Thanks for any idea.

        Hi Group:


I wasn't sure where to post this question so thought I would start
here.  I have been learning about different ways to read audio books and
I have been using BARD for years.  I started with Braille and then went
to audio books through the National Library service.  Lately, I have
been hearing that there are other services out there and have checked
some out and wanted to get your feedback.  I know Audible is very good
but I found one a bit cheaper and it seems a lot like Audible.  This app
I put on my phone is called Scribd.  It's $10 per month.  Have any of
you ever used this app and if so, what did you think?  I have noticed
that you can get any book you want where sometimes on BARD you can't get
it.  I like the idea of having books on my phone and then when I go
somewhere, I don't have to carry the digital player.  I heard that the
Bard app uses a lot of battery while reading books and it also seems
hard to use.  I haven't noticed Scribd using a lot of battery yet.  As I
said before, I like the convenience of getting mostly any book you
choose and having it at my finger tips.  The other thing I'm thinking
about is BARD is free.  I look forward to hearing your responses and if
there is any pros and cons you can think of.  Thank you in advance.

You might also be able to create folders in Thunderbird and move messages to specific folders. It's been ages since I've used Thunderbird. So, I don't remember how this works. Look in the menus. I hope that helps.

Disappearing Calendar event on my iPhone

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

Some months ago I added a weekly event on a calendar on my iPhone XR. I don't remember if the IOS was less than 14.6, but now I'm using 14.6. It contained the Zoom link. For some reason, the whole event disappeared. Any input as to why this could happen?

Thanks,

Re: extra files off my knew hard drive

Gene
 

these files are very small.  while there may be no reason to keep them, they take up such a small amount of room that I don’t think it matters if you leave them or not.  Since I don’t think deleting them would cause any harm, but since I don’t have enough knowledge on the subject of just what they do to be sure and since the use of space is miniscule, I would leave them on.

Hi all,

Since you probably have terabytes of space on that drive, just leave
'em.  They aren't takin' up too much space.

Hello,

 

I had this same problem in the past. You can either reformat it or use a disk utility program such as diskpart to bring it back on line. I If not familiar with the option write back for details. Easiest option is reformat unless you need some items on it.

I replaced my computer hard drive with an SSD drive and put the old SATA drive in a drive enclosure to use for data storage. I deleted the recovery partitions and I guess I missed a step and now when I connect the drive to computer it dings but does not show up. Is there anyway to fix  this?
