Re: Important information for Google Chrome users

Thomas N. Chan
 

Well, it's by design of the chrome itself.
everytime you open a page, there's different, addons or extension which is send to another chrome process. It depends how the chrome sees them, not all but it will.
If that extension or addons on the page is malicious  or crashes, it will not bring down the whole browser.

That's also one of the reasons  why you see a lot of chrome.exe on your task processor
and also, it also depends  if you set chrome to run at the background  to speed up loading of pages and opening of chrome itself.

a lot of background processors are just there and the reason why, it makes your computer experience much better.

If your browsing experience is slow after a while, then it's either  you close chrome and let it clear all those files and start all over again. no software is going to run forever on  your ram.

Re: how do I put bard on my desktop?

Hello, Jim, it's been years since I downloaded BARD Express on my PC. So, I don't remember exactly how I did it. But I'm pretty sure I downloaded it from the BARD website, and the process was pretty straightforward. So, I suggest you go there, log in, and see what you can find. Good luck.

outline view with braille sense Polaris

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Hi,

I’m unsure of how many folks here use the braille sense Polaris, but can, when in word, can we put word in outline view?

I looked under the file menu, under styles, and there was no mentioning of outline view. I then looked under presentation layout, nothing.

Thank you

I’ve seen contradictory opinions.  One statement I’ve seen in more than one place, it may or may not be correct, is that it is legal to remove DRM strictly for ;personal use but distributing tools for doing so is not legal.  Therefore, It may be legal to do so, but providing utilities or information about such utilities may not be. 
 
While I await further information, I will remove the original post from the archives.  If I receive good legal information that such discussion is legal, I will restore the original message.

A possible correction:
I’ve started looking into the question and it may be legal to remove DRM purely for personal use, such as converting files to other formats.  Other uses is illegal.  Therefore, I am suspending my objection to this information being presented on the list.  Others who know the law may wish to comment.  I will continue looking into the question.

the utilities discussed are not legal.  I haven’t looked at the site except to look at the title bar which is clearly discussing illegal use.  Here is what the title bar says on the page:
eBook DRM Removal, Remove DRM from ePUB PDF AZW etc

To make Audible Books accessible, for $25 you can purchase a utility that converts the AAX Audible files into MP3. 

 

Go to www.epubor.com to check it out.

 

They also have another utility that will convert Kindle books into other formats more accessible.  Think it costs around $50.

 

 

Both utilities are a bit Funky when it comes to Accessiblity.  It can be done with a screen reader, and nce you know the steps, it is fine.  But, learning those steps took me a while.

Re: Question about 5 g phone

Nimer Jaber
 

The iPhone XR will not handle 5G, but if you're still happy with your phone, 5G is not worth upgrading for if you can do all you want to do with your current phone. So, I'd advise waiting until you were going to upgrade anyway.

Re: Speech Synthesis, Headphones, and Hearing Loss

Gene
 

I don’t know what you were told or what you heard.  Here is one article from a good source. 
 
Here is another from a source I am not familiar with but it appears reputable.
 
This one is interesting because it discusses topics like the value of noise canceling headphones in environments that have sound that amounts to something in them.
 
If you do a search for something like WHO says not use headphones more than one hour day, you will see result after result.

Subject: [TechTalk] Speech Synthesis, Headphones, and Hearing Loss
 
Dear all,

I recently learnt that the WHO recommends wearing headphones for no
more than an hour a day. I expect this statistic to mostly account for
sighted people who use headphones to listen to music. I was wondering
if there is any research or literature about using headphones to
listen to screen readers for extended periods of time, the varying
impact of different speech synthesizers on the ear, and any hearing
loss this may induce.

I would appreciate all inputs and insights on this.

Hi all,

If one of you have this speaker, I want to know some things.

Is it easy to set up?

I want to use the program called drop in. if I have 3 speakers in different rooms does it work well as an intercom? I have a hearing issue and I thought it might make it easier to communicate

Thoughts please. Jim

hi all!

I've been a member of this list for a while now, and thought I would share this latest episode with you.

We start this episode out talking some troubleshooting steps out for Michael having strange Audio with his internet with a discussion of his reaper setup.
Damashe shares a little about how he’s getting better video into his video calls.
Michael asks an important question about what does hardwired really mean?
while we discuss how nice it is to have the ability to call someone for support.
We take some time to share information about the Apple event and what was announced.
This then transitions us into a conversation about IOS15 changes.
We chat briefly about our thoughts on using Android with the Pixel
and this episode is closed out by each of us sharing our favorite app/book for this week.
you can download the episode at:


Would love some feedback!

Yes, there's definitely a way to determine which speaker you want to use with NVDA. Press Alt plus Shift plus S to open the speech synthesizer dialogue. Below the combo box where you choose your speech engine is another combo box that says something like "Sound Output Device. Press Alt plus Down Arrow to open that box, and you should be able to choose the speaker you want to use with NVDA. I hope that helps.
