How do you post to a facebook group?

David Mehler
 

Hello,

Ok, I admit it, I'm a facebook newbie, if I use it once a year to keep
it active I'm doing good.

I'm in need of remedial facebook help. First, I've got a group that
I've joined, (I'm using win10, NVDA and google chrome) and I'm needing
to post a request a message to it.

Secondly, I'm wondering how to adjust my privacy settings so no one
can see which groups I'm subscribed to whether they're on my friends
list or not, the only one who should know my groups membership is
myself.

Help appreciated.

Thanks.
Dave.


ZOOM PHONE KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Hi All:

No wonder I can't win the Power Ball; I can't seem to keep my files in some
real order.

Ok, good people, does anyone have the phone keyboard shortcuts for Zoom? I
seem to have lost what I had. Much thanks for all help.

Sincerely,
Olusegun

J2022 Beta 2 Download Link, What's New + Report Form

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Okay the Beta 2 for J2022.2109.84 is out.  Below is the download link, what's new in Jaws with this release and a link to the Beta report form webpage.
 
 
Download link:
 
 

What's new in Beta 2:
 
Enhancements in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2022 Public Beta 2
 
The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 1 and Public Beta 2. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2022 Public Beta 2
New Layered Keystrokes for Selecting a Sound Card for Speech Output
 
In some instances, Windows may switch to a different sound device, causing you to lose speech from JAWS or Fusion. A couple examples of this could be when
you plug in another sound device which becomes the new default or when you are using a Bluetooth headset and you start a call on Teams or Zoom, causing
Windows to switch the sound device.
 
If these situations occur, you can now press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by V, and then C to access the new Sound Cards layer. Once in this layer, use UP
or DOWN ARROW to cycle through all sound cards available on your system. JAWS attempts to announce each sound card as you move to it. Once you find the
sound card you want to use for speech, press ESC to exit the layer. Note that the list of available devices does wrap, so continuing to press DOWN ARROW,
cycles through them all.
 
Other Changes
list of 12 items
• When splitting your audio, it is no longer necessary to be focused in a particular application before performing the keystrokes. Now, regardless of what
application currently has focus, JAWS speech will be routed to one speaker, while audio from all other applications will be routed to the other speaker.
• When performing a new install of 2022 on a computer where a previous version (2020 or 2021) is installed, there is now a new check box on the initial
setup screen where you can choose whether or not to silently migrate settings from the prior version. Clear this check box if you do not want to migrate
settings.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading search results on the Windows 11 Start Screen.
• Resolved an issue reported by several international users where Settings Center and Quick Settings were displaying in English instead of the user's specific
language.
• When navigating a table in Google Docs, JAWS now announces the current row or column after reading the cell contents. Additionally, if you have turned
off the anouncement of table cell coordinates in Quick Settings, JAWS now only reads the cell contents as expected when using the table reading commands
(ALT+CTRL+ARROW Keys).
• Addressed an issue where JAWS was not indicating the start of commented text in Google Docs when navigating by word.
• Addressed many reported issues with reading messages in Outlook 365.
• If Show as Conversations is enabled in Outlook, addressed a reported issue where the current message or conversation was not displayed in braille while
navigating the list.
• Added the CTRL+U keystroke to Windows Keys help (INSERT+W) for Outlook. This command marks the current message as unread.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not announcing the Date picker button when creating a meeting request in Outlook.
• When focused in an Outlook message list, such as the Inbox, the Customize Outlook Message List option is no longer available in the Run JAWS Manager
dialog box (INSERT+F2). This is by design as this feature no longer applies to these types of Outlook 365 lists.
• When using INSERT+WINDOWS+F4 to manually close JAWS in situations where it has stopped working correctly, resolved an issue where JAWS was not automatically
restarting and creating the memory dump file that contains diagnostic information for Freedom Scientific.

Re: Question about 5 g phone

you need the 12 series of IPhone or higher, but at this moment 5G doesn't offer improved range or speed in most areas.

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.

Hi,

I was notified that "T-mobile added 5 g service with a 5 g phone.  Isn't my iPhone XR enough to handle that speed, or is it necessary to get a special 5 g device?

The loudness in DB is more important.As long as loudness is at a certain level, there isn't any limit on how much you can listen.

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.

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.

Unless your computer is set to boot to USB drives all the time, I see a
problem on that part alone.
If we are talking about booting fresh from it.
You can still some sort of doing it from windows and doing it fresh and
let it restart itself but, the booting up part will be a challenge.


You can already reset windows, a working window and reset it fresh without
using a bootable media.
just type reset and you should find this option called something reset
your pc.



but if windows is not operable or crashes or whatever reason, then, you
just need someone to help you to boot that media, select a few options and
you can start the narrator after.

Hey Group,

I saved quite a few tips from you guys to get rid of those dreaded words from my folders.  They seem to just come back without notice every once in a while.  For two days I have been trying all the suggestions I have accumulated but I can’t make it disappear.  Why can’t I resolve this?

 

I think I need someone to go very carefully and step by step and see if I can get rid of this junk.  Who ever thought we would want to know this information?  How come they can’t just have a button that says I want this or I don’t?

 

I’d be grateful for some help here.  Smile
