Re: powered hub

I am not Mike but it appears that in the device Mike is using, ports only do one thing.  In that case, you could open This computer or file explorer, formerly called My computer and Windows explorer, connect a port, refresh the view with f5 and see if there is a drive associated with the device.  Each time you disconnect from one port and connect to another, you would refresh the view and see if there is a letter.  If it is a data port, there will be a drive letter for the device.  If the port is only a charging port, there won’t be.
 
I haven’t used the devices Mike is discussing.  I don’t know if some devices have ports that do both.  My feature pphone has a port that both charges and transfers information.  Therefore, sighted help may be necessary to determine if the ports are dual use or single use ports.

Hi Nancy,
 
I'm totally blind as well and the way I tell the difference between the USB ports for transfering data and the charging ports for cell phones and such is, the 7 ports beginning at the end with the USB and power cables are for transfering data and the last 3 ports furthest away from the cable end are for charging cell phones / iPads or other peripherals.

How do I tell which 3 are the ones that are used to charge devices?


So far, I use all the same and they seem to function well. I also

If you plug a USB drive into a charging port the USB drive won't do anything. 
 
So, the 3 ports furthest away from the end where the power supply and the USB 3.0 cable plug into the hub are the charging ports.  In short, trial and error.

Don't Feel Stupid About Using Your Computer, Read On, Humor

Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
Just thought some of you would get a kick out of this.
 
 
Don't feel stupid about using your computer, read on.
 
This is an  excerpt from a Wall Street Journal article:
 
 1. Compaq is considering changing the command "Press Any Key" to "Press Return Key" because of the flood of calls asking where the Any Key is.
 
 2. SAT technical support had a caller complaining that her mouse was hard to control with the dust cover on.  The cover turned out to be the plastic bag
the mouse was packaged in.
 
 3. Another SAT customer was asked to send a copy of her defective diskettes. A few days later a letter arrived from the customer along with photocopies
of the floppies.
 
 4. Another Dell customer called to say he couldn't get his computer to fax anything.  After 40 minutes of troubleshooting, the technician
discovered the man was trying to fax a piece of paper by holding it in front of the monitor screen and hitting the "send" key.
 
 5. A Dell technician received a call from a customer who was enraged because his computer had told him he was "bad and an invalid," The
tech explained that the computer's "bad command" and "invalid" responses shouldn't be taken personally.
 
 6. A confused caller to IBM was having troubles printing documents.  He told the technician that the computer had said it "couldn't find printer." The
user had also tried turning the computer screen to face the printer but that his computer still couldn't "see" the printer."
 
 7. An exasperated caller to Dell Computer Tech Support couldn't get her new Dell Computer to turn on.  After ensuring the computer was
plugged in, the technician asked her what happened when she pushed the power button. Her response, "I pushed and pushed on this foot pedal and nothing
happens." The "foot pedal" turned out to be the mouse.
 
 8. Another customer called Compaq tech support to say her brand-new computer wouldn't work. She said she unpacked the unit, plugged it in and sat there
for 20 minutes waiting for something to happen. When asked what happened when she pressed the power switch, she asked "What power switch?"
 
 9. Another IBM customer had troubles installing software and rang for support. "I put in the first disk, and that was OK. It said to put in the second
disk, and I had some problems with the disk. When it said to put in the third disk, I couldn't even fit it in...." The user hadn't realized that "Insert
Disk 2" meant to remove Disk 1 first.
 
 10. In a similar incident, a customer had followed the instructions for installing software. The instructions said to remove the disk from its cover and
insert into the drive. The user had physically removed the casing of the disk and wondered why there were problems.
 
 11. True story from a Novell NetWare Sysop:
 
 Caller: "Hello, is this Tech Support?"
 
 Tech: "Yes, it is. How may I help you?"
 
 Caller: "The cup holder on my PC is broken and I am within my warranty period. How do I go about getting that fixed?"
 
 Tech: "I'm sorry, but did you say a cup holder?"
 
 Caller: "Yes, it's attached to the front of my computer."
 
 Tech: Did you receive this as part of a promotional at a trade show?  How did you get this cup holder? Does it have any trademark on it?"
 
 Caller: It came with my computer. I don't know anything about a promotion. It just has '4X' on it."
 
 At this point, the Tech Rep had to mute the caller because he couldn't stand it. He was laughing too hard. The caller had been using the load drawer of
the CD-ROM drive as a cup holder and snapped it off the drive.
 
 12. A woman called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer. The tech asked her if she was running it under "Windows." The woman responded,
"No, my desk is next to the door. But that is a good point. The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a window and his  printer is working fine."
 
 13. Tech Support: "O.K. Bob, let's press the control and escape keys at the same time. That brings up a task list in the middle of the screen.
 Now type the letter "P" to bring up the Program Manager."
 Customer: "I don't have a 'P'."
 Tech: "On your keyboard, Bob."
 Customer: "What do you mean?"
 Tech: "'P' on your keyboard, Bob."
 Customer: "I'm not going to do that!"
 
 Now don't you feel better about your skill level?
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Re: Life of ssd drives

 

so let me answer your questions.
1. pcie nvme are way faster than sata, but if you get the high end
samsung drives.
sata can transfer at max 550mbps but if you use a pcie nvme you can go
to 3500mbps or so on and if you have a pcie x4 port which is the
latest technology which is on intel 570 chipsets and amd risen second
generations you can go up to 7000.
now why i am saying you can go up to 7000 is because there are various
types of storage technologies like qlc, mlc, tlc and so on.
now coming to your question regarding ssd life time, ssd can last so
long that you will get a new 1 before it fails.
however, i am not saying if you have ssd dont backup your data it wont
fail, ssds and hard drives can fail in many ways deu to power spikes,
and other things but ssds generally dont fail fast because you have
reached the maximum write cycle.
ssd life is mesured in tbw (Terabytes Written) the larger the drive
the higher the tbw.
another benifit of having a ssd is even if you some how reach the
listed tbw level, the ssd will enter a read only state so you wont be
able to write anything to the drive but you can read and backup your
data to another drive.
hope it helps.

I was recently told that a larger ssd would last longer than one with
less capacity. They  was stated that the larger drive will survive more
reads/writes than the smaller drives.

I can believe the validity of this, but would the life of the drive be
substantially longer?

In addition, I also heard that the PCIe NV Me M.2 is the faster
option.True?

Re: Problems with outlook 2019 and NVDA

Gene
 

I don’t recall hearing of this problem before.  When you are using NVDA, see if you are in browse mode when in the message list.  You manually toggle between browse mode and forms mode with the command NVDA space.  If you use that command and you switch modes, see if you can find the folder’s list then.  I don’t use Outlook and I don’t know if you might be in browse mode now.  But when situations like this come up and I can’t find what I want, I check to see if I am in  browse mode.
 
That allows me to use things like options properly in Firefox, that is, switching to forms mode, and it allows me to see things when working in settings in browsers like Cchrome and Edge such as the place where I change categories.

Re: Life of SSD drives

John Holcomb II
 

Yes, true.

MvMe is much much smaller than a spinning drive, has a much faster read/write.

And yes, the bigger the drive the more terabyte per hours written it seems to have from what I can see.

But  it depends on brand, and it   depends on what they rate the d drive as being used for, too.

Re: Would a home license of JAWS be feasible for a laptop that would be used for purposes of testing university software?

From what I remember hearing about this, if one was doing it at home with
your own machine, it should be OK, but if you are doing in there, or with a
machine they provide, then you may need the pro license.

I'm totally blind as well and the way I tell the difference between the USB ports for transfering data and the charging ports for cell phones and such is, the 7 ports beginning at the end with the USB and power cables are for transfering data and the last 3 ports furthest away from the cable end are for charging cell phones / iPads or other peripherals.

I have a 10 port powered hub.


How do I tell which 3 are the ones that are used to charge devices?


So far, I use all the same and they seem to function well. I also
really like having the on/off buttons.


Thanks for your help,

nancy

Thanks man! I’ll do that!

I’m a geek but there are little tings that I just don’t know mainly because I haven’t used them yet.

Hi John,

 

This dude David Bailes writes some pretty damn good tutorials for Windows operating systems amongst other things.  Go to the website below, then navigate by heading to Windows to find his Win10 tutorials.

I’ve heard JAWS say something about notifications in Windows 10.

Can someone explain more about this and how it works and that?

This is my first time using Windows 10 as I figure all of this out before I put it on  every device I own.

Thanks,

 

John
