Re: Problem With Wireless Card

Are you trying to connect to a 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz router? That can also make a difference based upon what your computer network card is able to handle.

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?

I got the small ones and the medium ones. I know I'll have a lot to mark, when I am moved.

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

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.

Then, the Velcro would need to have print markings on it, so that sighted people could see what to push; otherwise, they'd just pull it off in order to see what they would need to push.

They will work fine. What I like about Velcro is that once you got it stuck on you practically need a jack hammer to get it off, so a bit of dampness and humidity won’t hurt it.

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.

Re: What is The most durable way to mark the touch panel on a dish washer?

Carolyn Arnold
 

One thing is that whatever we use to cover a display has to be transparent, in order for others to be able to use it. For some time, I lived in my apartment alone, but if I had an issue where Maintenance needed to check, I would not have been able to cover a screen. Therefore, I have transparent dots. Tape can be transparent too, but I doubt that Velcro can.

Re: What is The most durable way to mark the touch panel on a dish washer?

James Bentley
 

I want to thank all who offered suggestions for marking my new dish washer. I have decided on using velcros strips which I will cut in to small sections. It looks like the velcros will stick longer than most of the glue on dots. The dish washer will be moist and warm and I will need to wipe the panel at times for finger prints.

Normally, it takes maintenance here where I live about 2 to 3 days to replace dish washers. The supply train problems here in the US have turned 3 days in to over one week. I do not like washing dishes by hand. Guess I have become a little spoilt.

I'll be glad when our world calms down and gets back a bit more to normal. But, will that even happen? Well, we all hope so.

Regards,

James B

It sounds like the wireless adapter has gone out. Is there anything I

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.

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.

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

Re: how do I uninstall jaws from my windows 10 laptop?

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.

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.

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.

Not off hand.  It's an HP, 4 Megahertz processor, with 4 gig of ram, not quite sure what exact type of ram it contains, origintally came with windows 8.0

No, my sighted cousin said that it was not this slow before he handed it over to me after the upgrade from 8.1 to windows 10.

I have a  question..

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.

 

Regards,

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.

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@mailman.midimag-xt.org

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.
