Hey Mike,

Yep. But I will try updating the device driver and see if that works.

The machine was built by a blind dealer who has a good rep. I will contact him if I can't solve this. Thanks for the suggestions.

Subject: [TechTalk] Problem With Wireless Card

I just got a new computer and have set up my wireless card to the internet.

Yesterday, I noticed that I can't connect. When I look at the systray,
it shows my internet service with a 2 out of four bars. But when I to
connect, it says that it can't connect.

It sounds like the wireless adapter has gone out. Is there anything I
can do to restore this card? More disturbing to me is why did this happen?

Anyway, any suggestions are welcomed?

Have you checked to see what apps are running in the background?

With that little ram any extra app running that doesn’t need to be should be turned off at startup unless it needs to run for some reason.

An SSD could help you too.

By a few apps, I mean a few browser tabs, the mail app, the weather app and Messenger. You look at the task manager and you can  just see the system is taxed to above 80% or more in ram usage.

4 gigs isn’t really enough these days.

I hope you meant gHZ and not mHGZ processor lol.

Your 4GB of ram is probably the problem.

I have a Surface Pro first generation (which I’m writing on  to you right now),  and it really can’t handle more than a few apps running at a time with JAWS running.

It’s fine for basic tasks, but anything complex would not work well on this particular PC.

If your ram isn’t soldered onto the board, you might be able to upgrade the ram. However, knowing your processor speed would help. One other question. Do you have any idea if it’s a 64 bit or 32 bit of windows?

If I were you, and I did absolutely nothing else, I would  upgrade that ram past 4 gigabytes. Because 4 gig is a very small amount for Windows 10 with screen readers running. Unless you’re doing just very basic tasks.

I have a laptop that originally came with windows 8.1 and that my cousin upgraded to windows 10 when windows offered the free upgrade.

 

I have jaws and NVDA installed on the computer and I have had one member of this list remotely enter my system to help me configure thunderbird to be used as my email client.

 

I noticed after my cousin gave me my computer back, with the upgraded version of windows 10 on it  that it was slow, like someone reading braille by letter by letter, but after they read the first letter, they have to check their learning braille books for the next letter one by one, on and on until they have the complete word spelled out and then they move on to the next letter.  I can click con a link  or option in the various windows or what not and walk away from the computer for about 2 to 3 minutes and  I will hear the computer just starting to do what I want it to do.

my cousin who upgraded the computer from windows 8 to windows 10

I do not wish to start a debate between members regarding resetting in windows 10 and restetting iin earlier versions as the word has ddifferent meanings in different versions of windows.

It depends on what type of touch panel it is. I have a bread maker that has a glass panel. There are no membrane keys, it’s extremely difficult to mark as just touching the glass triggers the buttons. Needless to say it’s been sitting in the box for the last four years. Luckily I got it with air miles so wasn’t out any money.



If it’s a membrane touch pad I would suggest velcroe as it sticks well and is easy to feel.

Hi,



I have an over-the -stove microwave.

I had my sister mark 15 of the touch-panel items with those small dots. I don’t know what brand. They are about the size and shape of a split pea. You just peel them of the sheet and stick them on.

In 8 years, 2 have fallen off and that has been in the last month or so.

Guess what 2 fell off?

You got it, 1 and 2.

I these 15 dots probably cost about a buck.

I got them from the braille superstore here in Canada. I think they are similar to the ones sold by maxiaids.

They come in a little sheet of 40 and cost a few dollars.

Around here, I have been treated like a King so, why rock the boat. Especially since V I persons work out marking appliances all of the time.



I only ask on list because I have almost no experience in marking some thing like a dish washer that is warm and often damp.

If that dish washer can't be marked then I would ask your managment if you can buy your own dish washer if they are not willing to provide you one. The worst case would be to wash your dishes at the sink by hand. My apartment complex does not provide dish washers. You certainly stand up for your rites to have an accessable dish washer. If you have to then go over their heads.

We don't have accessable laundry machines they are card machines so good luck

See what your RAM use is.  I don’t know if it accounts or partly accounts for the slowdown or not.  You can see how much RAM is being used in the Windows Task Manager.  Those who use Windows 10 can tell you how to frind out.  I don’t use Windows 10 and the interface may not be the same as in Windows 7.

Have you checked to see what apps are running in the background?

With that little ram any extra app running that doesn’t need to be should be turned off at startup unless it needs to run for some reason.

An SSD could help you too.

By a few apps, I mean a few browser tabs, the mail app, the weather app and Messenger. You look at the task manager and you can  just see the system is taxed to above 80% or more in ram usage.

4 gigs isn’t really enough these days.

I hope you meant gHZ and not mHGZ processor lol.

Your 4GB of ram is probably the problem.

I have a Surface Pro first generation (which I’m writing on  to you right now),  and it really can’t handle more than a few apps running at a time with JAWS running.

It’s fine for basic tasks, but anything complex would not work well on this particular PC.

If your ram isn’t soldered onto the board, you might be able to upgrade the ram. However, knowing your processor speed would help. One other question. Do you have any idea if it’s a 64 bit or 32 bit of windows?

If I were you, and I did absolutely nothing else, I would  upgrade that ram past 4 gigabytes. Because 4 gig is a very small amount for Windows 10 with screen readers running. Unless you’re doing just very basic tasks.

I have a laptop that originally came with windows 8.1 and that my cousin upgraded to windows 10 when windows offered the free upgrade.

 

I have jaws and NVDA installed on the computer and I have had one member of this list remotely enter my system to help me configure thunderbird to be used as my email client.

 

I noticed after my cousin gave me my computer back, with the upgraded version of windows 10 on it  that it was slow, like someone reading braille by letter by letter, but after they read the first letter, they have to check their learning braille books for the next letter one by one, on and on until they have the complete word spelled out and then they move on to the next letter.  I can click con a link  or option in the various windows or what not and walk away from the computer for about 2 to 3 minutes and  I will hear the computer just starting to do what I want it to do.

 

even the person who helped me remotely said "man, your computer is exceedingly slow"  have you degragged the hard drive.  my answer:  yes, several times.

 

I have removed apps, programs, ect and to no avail.

 

so, I  have asked here on the list and have had some luck from gene and perhaps 2 or 3 other people with helpful suggestions or websites to look at.

 

my cousin who upgraded the computer from windows 8 to windows 10

said that it was probably the screen reading program that was slowing my system down.  So, I wish to do a test.  I wish to remove jaws  and run NVDA on it to test to see if jaws is the issue.  yes, I know, I know, why would the premier screen reading software company cause such a slow down on a system, but the whole "resetting" the computer to a "fresh copy of windows 10" did nothing to fix the issue, if I did it correctly via a webpage from the virge that gene had posted to the group. 

 

I do not wish to start a debate between members regarding resetting in windows 10 and restetting iin earlier versions as the word has ddifferent meanings in different versions of windows.

 

So, bottom of the line,  how do I remove a program from a windows 10 computer?

 

Thank you.

Questions about a specific email list address

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

There's an email address I'm having a problem with. It's this:

midimag-ex@...

I got a message saying that my email message couldn't go through because this address couldn't be found. It's from an email list I'm on, and it seems to work when someone sends a message to this list. So why is it written like this, and what all should I delete when I edit this contact I added?

Thanks,

Sincere Apology

Nimer Jaber
 

Hello everyone,

Some of you may have received multiple messages from me in my attempt to correct a link to my stream re Android apps. I am very sorry for this, and will do my best to prevent a repeat.

What happened: I wanted to add on to the initial video, as I did not have Android subsystem working. I needed to recreate the video, which necessitated a new link. As I was sending out the email with the updated link, I sent it twice inadvertently, as I did not realize the first went through.

Steps to mitigate this in future: I will be more diligent in checking to see whether announcements were sent out, and will do what I can to avoid duplicates. I will avoid sending out updates to links as well, and hope that you may consider subscribing to be alerted to any new content, to avoid spamming various groups.

Again, please accept my apology for the duplicated messages. If you have any comments or questions, please send those privately to nimerjaber1@...

Thanks.

Hello, and thank you for watching this video! You being here is truly appreciated by Kirt and me.

Yesterday, when I attempted to demonstrate Android apps, I realized that I am unable to install the Android apps using the dev insider builds of Windows, or at least, not the official way provided by Microsoft. While I did test out the process, I did so on another machine which is running beta, however that machine has sensitive information on it, and I am not able to stream using that machine in the event that data leaks. Most streams are done live, as I believe it is important that you see the process of how I do something, as well as any struggles. I don't believe in much editing here.

So, I am back today with an update. I received some information from Timothy from the winaccess group on groups.io providing steps for a manual install of the Android subsystem. I have done this, but will not provide this info here, as I feel that users should generally wait for the official process provided by Microsoft. Nonetheless, I did want to demo Android support in Windows, and to provide some additional links with info which may be useful to you, should you have the beta installed, and wish to play. Please note that this support is still in preview.

Re: Office 365, Can't understandhow it works

Leo Bado
 

Hello, that is because you're using Office from the web. You have to log in using your Microsoft account, go to your Microsoft 365 subscription, and you should look for something to download the installer so that you can use the Office apps from your desktop. Yes, Office from the web is a pain in the neck.

Hi. I tried Office 365 for the first time today. Well, specifically I tried Word. It opened up as a web document, but unlike the MS office desktop app, it acts more as a browder based form than a document window, so that when I pressed Alt+F, the menu that popped up was more of my Opera browser's menu than a standard word applications menu. So, how do I edit my documents in the traditional office desktop environment with all the editting and layouts and styling and pages and lists and all that i've been using so successfully to write my office reports using office 365? Also, I found that I couldn't reactivate my desktop office 2019 anymore, simply because I've had to get a new pc to replace my old one, and it seems that I can't reactivate my licensed office 2019 because of the change in my computer's ID? Funny enough, my licensed Microsoft Office 2019 wasn't listed in my account as one of the products that I owned. Rather the Office 365 trial that came with my new PC was listed. It seems that that came about because I bought the subsription to One drive business, and unknown to me, Office 365 came with the deal. What a wonderful world of software deals we live in today eh? That aside, can anybody inlighten me on how to get going with the web version, for it seems to me that it is, of Microsoft office, aka Office 365? Cheers!

They are called bump dots and you can get them in different sizes and quantities.

I have an over-the -stove microwave.

I had my sister mark 15 of the   touch-panel items with those small dots.  I don’t know what brand.  They are about the size and shape of a split pea.  You just peel them of the sheet and stick them on.

In 8 years, 2 have fallen off and that  has been in the last month or so.

Guess what 2 fell off?

You got it, 1 and 2.

I  these 15 dots probably cost about a buck.

I got them from the braille superstore here in Canada.  I think they are  similar to the ones sold by maxiaids.

They come in a little sheet of 40 and cost a few dollars.

Hi all,

 

The maintenance department at my apartment complex is installing a new dish washer in my apartment early next week.  I did not get any say so concerning what kind of controls it comes with.  I have recently learned that it will have a touch panel.  Therefore, I will need to mark it.

 

Is there any glue on product that will with stand the heat, humidity, and daily cleaning of the front of the dish washer?  Or, is there some kind of an overlay product that I can hold up to the panel to assist me in selecting different functions.

 

For now, all I know is that it will either be a Whirlpool or a Kenmoore.

 

Thanks,
