Thanks for that bro.

I’ve been meaning to do this after I had to reconfigure everything on my system.

Subject: [TechTalk] how to restore the .zip in .zip files

 

Hi all,

Somehow, when it was late and I was tired, I somehow managed to change some setting on my computer so that when I download books from BARD, the list doesn’t show if the file is a .zip file. It makes figuring out which books are already extracted very confusing. Can anyone tell me the keystrokes to use in Windows 10 with JAWS to return these files to the way they were showing up?

 

Thanks much,

Issue With MLB Audio and Firefox

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

I use the iPhone for MLB game day or audio and I have had no problems. Recently, people on some lists have reported issues with receiving the feeds on desktops and laptops. I hadn't tried this for years so I tried it and at least with Firefox, the issue is verified. The feeds work with no problems with Microsoft Edge.

I tried removing cookies associated with MLB.com but that did not work.

Any help would be appreciated--especially for those who have to have access via desktops and laptops.

Re: NVDA List To Join Please.

There appears to be something wrong, perhaps a minor corruption in Windows on your machine.  It may be something else.  What antimalware programs are you running? 
 
If you did try to install NVDA, even the version you are using now on your Windows 7 machine, it would probably install because the problem you are reporting is not common.
 
The log would likely tell someone with the technical knowledge to understand it what the problem is or what to check as a possible cause or causes of the problem. 
 
Keep in mind that if you play with NVDA on Windows 7, the voice you will hear as default will be completely different from what you hear in Windows 10.  NVDA in Windows 10 uses Microsoft voices already on the machine by default.  If you install NVDA in Windows 7, you will hear E-Speak as the default.  You likely won’t like it and, though there are lots of free alternatives, don’t be put off by it.  it isn’t the default in Windows 10 and you can switch to another voice in Windows 7.
 
The voices used in Windows 10 aren’t available in Windows 7.

Hi Quentin,

No I’ve never had NVDA installed on either of my PCS, so this is the very first time.  Although, I can’t help but wonder what is this all about.  I guess I just have a curious mind!  Smile!  Is there anything you can tell me so I can check something about what might be causing an error?  I am installing NVDA on my new Windows 10 laptop, and apparently NVDA found something wrong, I would like to know what that might be. 

I am now just wondering if I attempted to install NVDA on my Windows 7 Desktop, just being curious again!  LOL!  I can’t help it!  Smile!  Although just one more thought, how about if I attempt to download NVDA 2020, just to see if NVDA might find the same error?  

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

Did you already have a copy of NVDA installed?  If so, which version?  There was an issue with several of the 2021.1 beta versions with updating - if you were using beta 3 or beta 4, you would need to download a more recent build manually, eg the current version is RC2: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2021-1rc2/

Humorous Zoom related message I wrote, a Virtual Audiologist

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I just thought I'd have some fun to share a humorous piece I wrote to ecently. I would like to have feedback and suggestions about how I can improve this off-list if anyone wants to pitch in. :)

Enjoy!
Welcome to the Hooley Hearing Clinic! My name is Sharon. I am a virtual audiologist, and I'm available now to give anyone a hearing exam via zoom. If you're interested, please send me your contact info to receive notifications, then come back to the Zoom controls. Now, through your headsets or connected hearing devices, please listen for a tone. If you hear it, just press alt+y on your PC, tap the icon on your iPhone, or star-6 in a phone call to raise your hand. This will automaticly send you a billing statement. If you wish to continue this test with different tones with varying volume levels, toggle to lower your hand and repeat the process. Each time you confirm that you heard these sounds, your bill amount will increase. If you complete the entire exam, wich includes words and sentences spoken by the other members in this meting, I will attach a copy of the results. If you decide to get a second opinion with another audiologist in person and the results are not the same, send me a message and I will refund you. Garunteed or your money back, no questions asked.

Re: Accessing the NFB Convention via Windows PC?

Wendy Walker
 

Yes you can access it on your laptop or desktop. The link to it is in every email that the NFB sent out about this convention, including the one they sent out today. It’s in there along with links to other social media links to access the convention.
You just type your name and email address then it will send you a verification code at that listed email. It’s pretty accessible, I used it today.

Also, though this won’t solve the probloem, if you want to play with NVDA, you can use the continue to run option.  That won’t install NVDA, but it will allow you to run it, though no settings changes will be saved.  Not everything will work or work as well if you don’t have it installed but if you are impatient to try it, you can do so for now.

Having trouble accessing the NFB21 app

Sharon Hooley
 

Is anyone having trouble accessing NFB21? I'm trying to open the event, especially on my iPhone XR with IOS14.6. Either the text fields aren't showing, or when it does, it seems to give me the run-around. Sometimes I can get as far as entering a verification code, but, unless I'm missing or doing something wrong, it just stays with name and email address. I'm sure the address is the one I used to register to the NFB convention. What could be going wrong? I'd appreciate any input.

Good morning listers. I have a couple of podcasts that I like to listen to on tunein radio.

I went into tunein radio settings and was unable to find any setting that would turn off this autoplay. Can somebody help me?
