Re: reading pdf's

Wait a little while for the file to fully open, at which point, it will be displayed below those options.  If you can’t read it after a little while, its likely an image file.
If You don’t have to wait, you can start down arrowing until you get to the end of the options.  You can keep down arrowing and when the file has loaded, you will start moving down in the text.

I was able to navigate to and launch the file after doing CTRL o.

However, after the pdf opens, how come it says edit page one, fit to page, zoom in, etc.

Can’t I just read the pdf?

It just gives me options to download or print.

If that’s the case, I don’t know why shift tabbing once or twice doesn’t place you in the folders and files list.

Do you hear open file dialog spoken when you issue the command control o?  Try shift tabbing more than once.  I don’t know just exactly what you will move through but there should be a list of files and folders, as there is in any standard open dialog.

 

From your description, however, you may not be in the open file dialog.  If not, and if you are using control o, I don’t know what the problem is.  You can use another program, of course, I discussed using browsers because you won’t have to install another program. 

 

If you don’t hear open file dialog when you use control o and wait a little while, let us know and let us know what you do hear.

What browser do you use?  If it isn’t Internet Explorer and is reasonably current, it will be likely to be able to read PDF documents. 

 

Chrome-based browsers can and Firefox can.  I don’t know about other browsers.

 

Use control o, not control l to open the open file dialog.  Find and open the file just as you would in any open dialog.

 

Wait a bit and then start down arrowing.  You may see preliminary items that don’t matter but below various buttons and perhaps this or that odd and end, the document should begin. 

 

it may be, I haven’t compared or seen much about this, that this or that browser may render a document better in terms of formatting.

How to export from Outlook Express

Kay Malmquist
 

Hi all,
I would like to export my account and all folders in Outlook express to Microsoft outlook that is on another machine.  Any ideas as to how best to go about doing this?  I briefly looked around but am not sure about what I should do.  Ultimately, I'd rather just set up Outlook express on this other machine even though I have Microsoft 2019 there already.  I'm open to any suggestions.  Thanks much.

NVDA voices

Kimsan
 

Hi,

Last week, I installed NVDA, it sounds like it’s using narrator.

That’s a huge improvement from whatever the old one was called that I cannot remember right now, but I am wondering where can I get other voices as I am not liking what it’s using right now.

 

In all honesty, before I was using eloquence for NVDA, but this was several years ago and it was a hack.

Don’t misread that last statement, I’m not asking for a hack, I’m just saying that is how I used it last time, several years ago.

 

Thank you.

viewPlus embosser graphics mode

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi

In the printer preferences in the devices tab, I see an option that lets me choose either text or graphics for braille type. I think this is legacy mode settings because when I hit apply, the braille printer beeps to confirm the new settings. So Is this text/graphics setting for printing a picture from, say, Microsoft paint? Or a graph in excel? Will the graphics mode give me better quality graphics? Or is the text/graphics mode does it only affect legacy settings as in I am embossing from a braille graphics program like quickTac, or embossing an algebra graph from a braille note?

viewPlus embossers not word-wrapping

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi

 

I have an irie-at viewPlus braille Buddy embosser. I pasted some text from the web into wordPad after translating it with viewPlus translator, hit print. Some lines of braille only have one or two words and the top and bottom margins are too wide. Also, some words there is a part of a word on one line and it finishes on the following line below it in the left margin. So how do I fix this so the resulting braille document looks nicer? The dot quality is good, I also have the legacy settings set to standard margins and in printer preferences page size is set to automatic.

Hi all.  On another tech list one of the members (must work for the company) posted a link to a new radio product the company is developing.  There is a link to a demonstration and I must say it is rather impressive and when it becomes available, I’ll be one of the first to buy one, especially if it has phono outputs.  You can listen for yourselves and there is a survey for your comments if anybody wishes to respond.  I’ll paste the whole email below.  Walter.

 

Hello.

 

At Taira Technology, we are in the process of developing a fully talking FM and DAB digital radio.

 

So far, we have created a promising prototype and are hoping to incorporate innovative features to make it more than just a radio.

 

Please click on the following link to hear an audio demonstration of our progress so far:

tried every
USB port on the machine with the same result. I can use Seeing AI on the
iPhone to see that the desktop is displayed on the monitor. Therefore,
either the keyboard or the speakers are just not functioning once
signed in.
I am so stumped I don’t know where to start. I don’t have a BT keyboard
paired to the system so I can’t try that approach either.
Does anyone have any ideas for me?

working.

What would cause the sound to work before signing in and not after?

As I stated, after putting in my password, the system will accept
nothing
from my keyboard. I will try to tab to the power button before
entering the
password and see if that will work. I have tried powering it off with
the
power button, waiting and re-starting but so far, no help.

Here's a few things to try,

1. After coming out of sleep mode and putting your password in, try
starting Microsoft Narrator by holding down the  Windows key and the
CTRL keys and then tapping the Enter key.

2. After waking up the PC from sleep mode by touching a key, Try
tapping the TAB key to reach the Power button option and then try to
shutdown the PC.  After manually restarting the PC does it come back
to the desktop normally?

Trying to set up and use a Folio Smart Keyboard with case

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

Does anyone use a Smart Folio keyboard on your iPad? Either I don't know all the details of the arrangement, or it just doesn't work. So I need confirmation if I'm doing this right, please. So I put the iPad inside the case with the hole in the corner surrounds the little round thing. on the back near the side and volume buttons of the iPad. The keyboard fits upside down against the screen. When I want to use it, the only thing that makes sense to me is to pull it off the screen, like lifting the lid of a case, and fold it backward over the underside, so that the screen is upside down. Is this correct? If not, how should I do it? And is there one or more keys that I need to press or hold, and/or an adjustment in settings, before it will work?

Thanks,
