Yeah we really do need a free speech system. Any semblance of that has pretty much gone over the last couple years. Lol watch the subject lines, they can be misleading.

You can NVDA for free and it is a great screen reader.

Hello, I need some help seriously!
For some strange reason, since last night, my voiceover has been not working properly.
I can only get speech if it comes through Bluetooth headset, if I disconnect this headset I cannot get any speech output. At the same time, my braille display, which is functioning perfectly otherwise, will not respond to anything other than being able to read if I swipe on the screen.
I am using an iPhone 12 mini, is the latest update of the operating

System.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! Thanks Kerryann F.. Ifill





Re: SE 2020 input please!

Nope.

I don’t want more dongles.

And if I’m gonna go that route, might as well u use a dedicated headphone amp.

But also I can’t c  charge and use that adaptor at the same time.

Number one when picking any product is does it have a headphone jack or a line out jack.

Not only does the SE sound at least twice as good, it is way way, faster.

 

You can purchase a $10.00, short cable from Amazon that will allow you to plug your old headphones in to the new SE.  I just leave the adaptor cable attached to my headphones 100% of the time.

Not to me. I got an iPad Mini5 so I could have my headphone  jack after my first generation SE loses support (most likely next year.)

I also have the iPod Touch for the same reason, headphone jack

Hi David,

It is Microsoft Narrator, also commonly called Narrator!

It has been in Windows since Win2K Pro, but hasn't had much development

until Windows 10, and Microsoft has made a lot of improvements.

Yes, it is built into Win 7 and Win 10.  It is called Narrator and you bring it up by holding down the Control key and Window key and hitting enter.  Also you can hit the same combination of keys to turn it off.

But you can put an apple earbud set in the lightning connector at the bottom of the phone, just can't use it and charge at the same time, unless you have, like I do, a wireless charger. Then you can talk and charge to your heart's content.
