Hello,
OK, I'll be honest. I don't have the need for one, even though I have a braille sense, and even a braillenote.

Hi,
Since Kelsey mentioned braille displays I ask the following:
Who is using which braille displays and why? What do you like or not like about the one you have.  I seem to ask this question once a year because I find it fascinating to hear about what people are using, why and how they do or don’t like it especially when it pertains to pieces of equipment that are so expensive that they require a seemingly high level of equipment before one selects one.
thanks for indulging my curiosity.

braille display

Kelsey Nicolay
 

Hello,
I'm new to the group. I have a Brailliant Bi 40 Braille display that I use at work. I just got it a couple months ago. It's great to be able to hear JAWS and also read the screen in grade 2 Braille. However, I am having trouble remembering which keys to press to emulate the qwerty keyboard keystrokes. I can do some like control s, but I have trouble with the ones that are multiple keys pressed together. I have an apex that I have no problem with, it's just remembering which keys to press on the Brailliant to do certain things. Therefore, does anyone have any tricks to help me remember which fingers to use for control, alt, windows, etc.? I'd really like to not have to take my hands off the Braille display. I use the thumb keys all the time. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Kelsey Nicolay

I think we have had our toaster oven for at least two years.

Our toaster oven has exactly what you are describing. It has a slot for the toast up top, and a lever on the end that you push to push the toast down when it's done, it pops up. It has two knobs. One for the toast and one for the oven part. I think we got it at Walmart. I think it's a Black & Decker.

Pam, we have an older model toaster oven that has a door that opens on the front for things such as sandwiches and other things you would like to warm. There is a large open slot on the top where you place your bread, I think it will hold 4 slices of bread.  As I stated, it is an older model and I'm not certain of the brand.  There are several adjustable knobs on the front for setting the temperature and time.  What I like is the timer actually has a bell that will let you know when your food is done.  Just some info for you and the group.  Have A Good One! de

Re: Toaster Oven

Well, I will send you some links again. You might have to buy online versa brick and mortar.

 

Hamilton beach: https://www.hamiltonbeach.com/toastation-toaster-and-oven.html

 

Waring: http://www.waringpro.com/catalog.php?pcID=142_160&product_id=541

 

Now this is two I did not find a black and decker but did not go thru all of them on the site there was just too many on black and decker site. Now you can buy the two above from other places than the site. Like Amazon and Walmart and so on. YOU might not find them in a brick and mortar store. But why buy one from a brick and mortar store. Just by online from Walmart or whoever and then if you don’t like it for some reason take it back to the brick and mortar store. I know you can order off online with Walmart and take it back to the store or have it shipped to the store. So they are out there. I tend to like Hamilton beach myself.

I have an older convection/toaster oven.  It is quite large. I can put two 12 inch pizzas in it, one on each shelf. It even has a rotiserie  feature. Three knobe  to turn for temp, mode, and time.  I’m looking for another like it as it is from the last melinium  I think; Hamilton beach, got it at sears Canada no buttons or display, just nice big knobs.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Yes and they make newer models as I have sent out links to them. Most all the major brands make them like that. Like Hamilton beach and black and decker and weaver and the list goes on. If you read some of my earlier emails you will see links to them. If you think about it really makes a lot of sense  instead of having a toaster and then a toaster oven. Just have it all in one and it will not take up any more space if as much.

Pam, we have an older model toaster oven that has a door that opens on the front for things such as sandwiches and other things you would like to warm. There is a large open slot on the top where you place your bread, I think it will hold 4 slices of bread.  As I stated, it is an older model and I'm not certain of the brand.  There are several adjustable knobs on the front for setting the temperature and time.  What I like is the timer actually has a bell that will let you know when your food is done.  Just some info for you and the group.  Have A Good One! de

Well, yes they are both toaster oven anything you can make toast in could be called a toaster or toaster overn the latter is infact usually have a elament in the top and some even have one in the top and bottom. And the real fancy ones will have a tray and eleament in the top and one in the bottome and slots on top for toast as well.  It all depends on what you want and how much money you want to spend.

Re: using NVDA to upgrade to Win10

Jim Wohlgamuth
 

Thanks much Quintin!
It sounds to me as though I will have to wait till I have a couple hours to spare.  I will certainly try it this weekend time permitting.  I just have to wait till I get paid again to upgrade my W.E. so I will have a bit better control over it.  But I have heard that NVDA works fairly well with it so I am not going to get to shook up over the wait<SMILE>!  THANKS again! de

Hi Jim,

You can use NVDA up until the computer says it's going to restart (and will restart several time).  After that point, wait about half an hour (give or take, depending on the age and speed of your machine), then try pressing WINDOWS+U to start Narrator and bring up the ease of access center - you'll need to do this at this point as while NVDA should work once the install is complete, only Narrator works in this middle part).

If Narrator doesn't start, go grab another cuppa and try again in another 20 mins.  On my five year old machine it took about 80 minutes - I've heard reports anywhere from half an hour to three hours so your mileage may vary.

I've written a book on Windows 10 you may be interested in.  I offer a free chapter which is just happens to be the one on upgrading: http://www.22point.com.au/publications.html

Kind regards

If in doubt, don't click. If you really want to know, go to a search engine,
such as Google, and search there to see if true. Then only trust reputable
sites such as direct links from Microsoft. Unless you know what you're
doing, never follow a link in an email. Even friends can send you viruses if
their accounts have been hacked. If it looks suspicious, it probably is. If
it looks legitimate, assume guilt until proven otherwise unless you
absolutely trust the source, or it's something you're expecting. Even then,
make sure your virus definitions are up to date, which any reputable virus
program will do anyway. It's still a good idea to periodically check things
to make sure nothing has been disabled.
