Hi,
Thanks for replying.
I wonder if the braille edge or vario have replaceable batteries or if they must be done by their respective makers.
I appreciate your reply (smiles).

Hello Sis Robin:

 

I have the HIMS BrailleSense Plus!  It’s an older model of course as the BrailleSense U2 has overthrown it <LOL>!!

 

First, what I don’t like:  Continued development of the software that runs on it in Windows CE 5.0, use of Internet Explorer 6 as browser, Flaky wireless connectivity—it has a mind of its own; as I type this, I am sitted directly in front of my router.  Forget that ma’am, the BrailleSense Plus can’t find my wireless network. 

 

I’ll never use this thing to access the Internet.  I’ll have to wait till the next set of astronauts return from the moon before it gets through downloading and sending my E-mails; yes, I get tons of E-mails!  I can’t even use it to surf the Internet and get good results.  For such issues, I prefer the use of my computer or my Shiny Crappy Android phone!  Shiny crappy?  Yeh, that’s my way of singing the praise of my Android toy and I am hands over foot in love with it.

 

Second, what do I like about my Braille display?  Well, I can use its calculator for simple arithmetic; I can read tons of books in text, .brl or .brf and .doc .docx formats whilst riding the bus home or when in a noisy environment.  I can open at least seven documents if memory serves and skip from one to the other.  And, yes, the tech support of HIMS is NOT bad!  It’s nearly at par with that of the blessed GW Micro now dying or folding into another corporation in the name of merger.  Oh, it does have a replaceable battery which, sadly, I must order directly from HIMS!  My local battery dealers can’t find the kind and type of battery it uses.  For the time being, the BrailleSense Plus still gets FREE SOFTWARE and FIRMWARE updates!  How long this shall continue remains anybody’s guess.

Hi all. In the new year I'm contemplating getting a laptop. It has
been
a few years since I had one and things have moved on a fair bit since
then.
However I would like to know which manufacturer is considered to have
the
best quality products. A few years ago I saw a lot of posts on lists
like
this moaning and complaining about HP but have they improved? are they
considered a good bet for quality and reliability now? There is a lot
of
differing brands on offer but I'd like to consider your opinions on the
various brands and their pros and cons before seeking out a suitable
model.
I've just looked at one web site and noticed that laptops are still
rather
expensive. I actually want a laptop rather than a tablet because the
hard
drives are larger and there is an integral keyboard and more than one
USB.
I've discounted apple as Apple are too controlling, restrictive and it
is
a
completely new learning curve which I'm not inclined to embark on. I
would
much prefer win7 as the OS, definitely not Win8. The site I looked at
has
no Win10 which surprises me so I'll need to go with Win7, stick with
what
I
know I guess.



If you have an opinion on the various brands then will you please let
me
know your thoughts and why you have come to the conclusions you have.
With
thanks. Walter.

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

Re: What happens if you donate a USB Flash Drive to GoodWill?

Quentin Christensen
 

I haven't really looked into secure wiping programs, but just to back up your point about not trusting others to get rid of things for you... Look at that poor plumber in Texas who traded in his old work truck and the Ford dealer convinced him not to take the decals off, saying ripping the decals off ruins the paint and he could do it without damage... Now the truck is in Syria being used by ISIS and it still has the plumber's details on it and he's been getting death threats from people who think he's a terrorist supporter.

(I only raised that as an example, please don't comment on the politics or anything of that whole situation!) I bet he takes his own decals off next time, though, damage or not...

In Microsoft Office 2016 envelopes Dialog Narrator saves the day

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
If like me anyone has struggled with the fact that the major screen readers seem to have difficulty reading the to and from address fields in the print envelopes dialog in Microsoft Word under Office 2016 I’ve glad tidings. Much to my great delight I discovered today that Narrator under Windows 10 bless it seems to perform flawlessly in this dialog. So while we wait for better accessibility via screen readers to become possible at least there’s a work-around to insure accuracy when printing envelopes in the meantime (smile).
I for one am ever grateful for options for getting things done.
I hope that helps someone.

Trouble with Windows 10 upgrade and ZT and WE

Loy <loyrg2845@...>
 


I have had a problem upgrading to Win 10 on my Win 7 computer.
After upgrading,  I installed ZoomText and Window Eyes,
latest version and as long as WE was not running ZT worked fine. But if
I started WE the screen would flicker. If I uninstalled ZT and just run WE everything worked fine. I spent sever hours on the phone wit ZT tech support, but no solution was found. After that I uninstalled ZT and WE and installed Fusion. Same problem.  So I'm giving up on Win 10 on this computer and am reinstalling Win 7 from a system image I made just before upgrading. ZT tech support said they had not seen this before. By the way all display drivers were up to date. And the computer is a Dell, I just bought back in the spring.

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

everything from frozen waffles and Pop Tarts to pizza, chicken
patties, broiled salmon and plain old toast.  I never use my

toaster oven is so indespensible that I ordered another one yesterday
as a backup just in case the current one dies.  The unit I ordered is
the Proctor Silex 4 slice toaster oven broiler, model 31140A, which
is available on EBay for a limited time while supplies last for only
$15.99 with free Fedex shipping.  .  My exsperience is that a toaster
oven won’t last very long, especially if you use it daily, because
the heating elements will eventually burn out. These units are all
made in China now, and the product quality is not what it used to be
when they were actually made by Black & Decker and Hamilton Beach, respectively, here in the US. But for only $16, you can’t go wrong.
Based on the product description, the Proctor Silex unit has the same
three mechanical knobs as the Black & Decker model, so it should be
just as easy to use.  For anyone who is interested in a great ,

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.

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.

I have seen small standalone ovens that have a broiler element in the top and I've seen some with slots in the top for making toast.  Are they both called toaster ovens or could one be a broiler oven?  Just wondered about the proper names?  The one I have does not have bread slots.

Yeah, there's some unhealthy gooey glop inside a Pop Tart, which is
why I only eat them once in a while.  And god only knows what's really
in the topping of those Ellio's frozen pizzas that I love so much
because they fit perfectly on the toaster oven baking pan.  But, hey,
I just had my annual physical exam, and the doctor pronounced me in
perfect health, so I must be doing something right.  For the record, I
work out religiously at least 2 hours daily, 7 days a week, so an

the Proctor Silex 4 slice toaster oven broiler, model 31140A, which

$15.99 with free Fedex shipping.  .  My exsperience is that a toaster
oven won’t last very long, especially if you use it daily, because
the heating elements will eventually burn out. These units are all
made in China now, and the product quality is not what it used to be
when they were actually made by Black & Decker and Hamilton Beach, respectively, here in the US. But for only $16, you can’t go wrong.
Based on the product description, the Proctor Silex unit has the same
three mechanical knobs as the Black & Decker model, so it should be
just as easy to use.  For anyone who is interested in a great ,
inexpensive Christmas gift for themselves or somebody else, check it out:

toaster oven is so indespensible that I ordered another one yesterday
as a backup just in case the current one dies.  The unit I ordered is
the Proctor Silex 4 slice toaster oven broiler, model 31140A, which
is available on EBay for a limited time while supplies last for only
$15.99 with free Fedex shipping.  .  My exsperience is that a toaster
oven won’t last very long, especially if you use it daily, because
the heating elements will eventually burn out. These units are all
made in China now, and the product quality is not what it used to be
when they were actually made by Black & Decker and Hamilton Beach, respectively, here in the US. But for only $16, you can’t go wrong.
Based on the product description, the Proctor Silex unit has the same
three mechanical knobs as the Black & Decker model, so it should be
just as easy to use.  For anyone who is interested in a great ,
inexpensive Christmas gift for themselves or somebody else, check it out:

I am thinking of getting a small 4 slice Black and Decker Toaster Oven.
does anyone on the list have any experience with this unit and its it
possible to mark the controls for accessibility?
Thanks, Marie

Sounds like quite an old model, though.  Pam.

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

I have never seen toaster ovens, even fancy ones, that have separate slots for toast.  The kind I miss is the kind that had a lever you push down to start the toaster oven, like toasters do, so that you can leave your time and temperature controls where they are.  Pam.

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.

I have seen small standalone ovens that have a broiler element in the top and I've seen some with slots in the top for making toast.  Are they both called toaster ovens or could one be a broiler oven?  Just wondered about the proper names?  The one I have does not have bread slots.

Thanks to all the info and I am ordering one today. I hate using the
conventional stove for heating up small items and my regular toaster
is on its last days. Living alone it seems a waste to use the big oven
when a little toaster oven would do the trick.

Yeah, there's some unhealthy gooey glop inside a Pop Tart, which is
why I only eat them once in a while.  And god only knows what's really
in the topping of those Ellio's frozen pizzas that I love so much
because they fit perfectly on the toaster oven baking pan.  But, hey,
I just had my annual physical exam, and the doctor pronounced me in
perfect health, so I must be doing something right.  For the record, I
work out religiously at least 2 hours daily, 7 days a week, so an
occasional Pop Tart probably won't kill me.

...well enough about the toaster ovens, I use them a lot also.  But
you actually eat those pop tarts?  Do you know what's inside of them?
Don't ask! Just eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow--oh well, cancel
that last part.

Sorry couldn't resist!

up to 30 minutes.  I placed tactile dots at the 5 minute and 15
minute positions on the timer to make it easy to set, and I rarely
adjust the temperature knob, which I leave turned all the way to the
