Sound Extension For Downloading In Chrome

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Howdy Y'all,
 
I finally found an extension that plays a sound when a download is complete.  Info is below:

Compatible with your device
You get a desktop notification while your downloading finished.
0.0.5
I get the time to make the 'play a sound when download finished' feature configurable. And you also can decide whether the default download shelf should
display or not (though I prefer NOT).
 
Another change is, there will be more than one notification card displayed.
 
All things now could be configured via options page.
 
**********
V0.0.4
Here comes three new things:
1. The "Open" button now can be used
2. While one download finished, it would play a sound (not configurable for now)
3. The icon would be visible even if you are using a pure black theme
 
and one more thing (might be buggy):
- sometimes Chrome thought the file downloaded would be harmful, once this happened, this extension will prompt to ask for your confirmation, and this
will be done on the chrome://downloads page. And, this feature might be buggy, if
you encounter any problem, contact or email me. Thank you.
 
**********
 
This extension does two things:
 
1. Disabled the download shelf. Yes, I personally do not like it. So when I get the change, I just disabled it. You will get a badge while something is
downloading. Sorry no progress bar available for now.
 
2. Display a desktop notification when your downloading finished, and you could find it by one simple click.
 
TODO(May be implemented in future, may not):
 
1. An animated browser action icon which could show the downloading progress
 
2. A "OPEN" button on the notification card -- depends on whether Google would allow me to do so. [V0.0.4 added]
 
3. A popup shows all the downloads -- actually it was almost there, if there had not been some annoying bugs.

Re: placing website shortcuts on the windows 10 desktop

Ann Parsons <akp@...>
 

Afn all,

You create a desktop icon for a web site in the time honored fashion which has been valid since win98.

1. Go to your desktop.

2. Unselect the item you've landed on with ctrl-space. You *must* do this, otherwise it won't work.

3. Use your context menu and arrow down to 'new'.

4. Press 'enter'.

5. Arrow down to shortcut.

6. press 'enter'.

7. When you get into the wizard it will ask you to type in the name of the file or web site you want. Do that. In your case that'd be www.facebook.com

8. Tab to next and hit the spacebar.

9. Type in a name for your shortcut, I'd call it facebook.

10. Tab to finish and press the spacebar.

That's it. Works the same way it always did. I just created one now to prove it to myself.

Ann P.

Re: Looking for blind-friendly scanner recommendations

Ann Parsons <akp@...>
 

Hi all,

Walt, I'm sorry but I'm confused. Do you want a scanner for doing OCR or a radio scanner. If a scanner for teaming up with an OCR program, you can use any SANE compatible model.

I don't know a thing about radio scanners.

It would be great if you could clarify.

Smiling?
 

Not using Windows10, but I would imagine by simply going to your Favorites directory to copy whatever shortcut to your clipboard and pasting it would work just fine.

How, if it is possible, do I place website shortcuts on the desktop on a windows 10 machine?  I'd like to have a direct shortcut to facebook.

Re: Looking for blind-friendly scanner recommendations

sadly most of the police transmission are now encrypted, apco25 is all the rage.
in Australia and I am guessing in the UK police are all encrypted, fire and ambulances are not as yet.
Uniden and several other brands make digital scanners, still plenty of unencrypted digital and analogue transmissions can be found.

Hi again Iaen, I have been looking to purchase a didgital scanner here in Scotland UK for sometime now, but but find it difficult to find a seller.

I used to have a handheld radio scanner for listening to the emergency channals, such as local police, fire, and medical services, and even mobile phone transmitions and of course the CB radio system, but the handheld became basically useless, as the police and others changed to the didgal format system.

Don’t even know if you can get such a didgal radio to let you listen to the above transmitions?, Billy

G'day Walt.

looks like the Uniden is the best of a bad bunch, not a bad radio but trying to find good software to program it is a pain!

I have several software packages to solve this problem:

you should get a subscription to www.radioreference.com as a start, they have mostly up to date frequency listings that can be downloaded to your scanner software then imported to your radio.

freescan supports the uniden scanners and the radio reference importing of frequencies.

I've been looking at information on various scanners (mostly Uniden models) and am pretty much confused and feeling like I don't have the information I really need. I know that I don't want a hand-held model and I don't want one that uses touch screen technology, so what's left? Based on your personal use and experience, what's a really good, blind-friendly TrunkTracker scanner? I do know that in addition to all the basics, I want S.A.M.E. weather alert and I'm not wedded to Uniden as a manufacturer, but if you do recommend another brand, please include information on where to buy. Just to show my low level of understanding, what's the difference between analog and digital models? Thanks for any/all feedback and suggestions.

Re: movies from blind mice Mart and iPhone

Yes did a google search and found that out.

Now can you create a folder and then a sub folder in that folder in VDR ? If not then can you create a Folder and then a playlist in that folder?

Never tried using a sleep timer with VDR, but  I’m sure the help documentation would clarify that query for you. 

A copy of the file will be imported to VDR. You can delete the Google Drive or DropBox file without impacting the VDR copy.

I know that Downcast which is my prefered podcast player has a sleep timer function. I usually import the DVS movies I listen  to to either Downcast or VoiceDream Reader as I find both apps to be far superior than the default Apple podcast app. In fact, I just finished binge-watching/listening to the six previously released Star Wars movied yesterday so I can go see the new one later this week. I imported all six into VDR through its own import feature via google Drive.

You can import files through either app or also through a third party file managing app. In my case, I use FileBrowser. It is completely accessible and I’ve found the devs to be responsive to Voiceover user feedback.

I haven’t used  iTunes to import files  in I don’t’ know how long.

Well, I have converted to several video formats and none works with iTunes as showing up as a video. I think this is because it has no video to it and iTunes is not looking at the format only but for video as well. So If I was to use some kind of video editor and added some kind of video anywhere in the file it would then see it as a video .

When I change the format or convert it to a video file with a converter it then will even give me an option when I use the app key on the file to open in windows media center. So that tells me  that windows media center is just looking at the format and nothing else. As iTunes is looking for more.

So the solution is to just forget this as adding video is way too much. I will either tag it as music or audio books or podcast . more than likely just tag it as a music file and then create a playlist or folder and then sync with iTunes to my phone and just have it in the music app.

So my next Question is does the music app on the iPhone have a sleep timer built into it?  I know I can use the timer part of the clock on the iPhone but it would be nice if they had a sleep timer in the music app like they do in iBook’s.

Also do they have a sleep timer in the native podcast app ?

Yes, you could do both of the two previous suggestions, the unfortunate thing is, iTunes is iTunes. Because of piracy and illegal copying of protected media and all that, iTunes is very limited on what you can do with certain files and then extensions. I don't think just changing the file extension will be enough for iTunes to recognise the file is a movie file.

Well, got some movies from the Blind Mice Mart movie vault. Now these is describe movies and they don’t have any video to them they just have the audio rip from them and then a person describing what is going on in the movie.

So the movies is in MP3 format. So the problem is I cannot get them to show up as movies in iTunes.

When I  add say one to iTunes and then go to music as that is where it is going to show up by default. Then I go to the file under music and I in my case is using windows but don’t know that matters here I think the process is the same. After I go to the file and use my app key on it and choose get info. Then go to the option tab under the get info box and where it says media kind and this is a combo box and I go into it I have several choices. Podcast, music, audio book and itunesU . Nothing to change the media kind to movie or video.

I think this is because it is a MP3 file.

So my question is how and what format do I need to change to in order for this file to be able to show up as a movie in that list or show up as a movie? So it will show up in movies instead of music or podcast or audio books ? Any help will be appreciated !

So my question is how and what format do I need to change to in order for this file to be able to show up as a movie in that list or show up as a movie? So it will show up in movies instead of music or podcast or audio books ? Any help will be appreciated !

Hi Dennis,
 
I should explain my self a little better.  What I would like is, an add-on or extension that will allow Windows system sounds to work in Chrome.  Then maybe, I might get a sound when a download is complete.  Downloads come down so fast in Chrome you don't even realize a download is in progress or has completed.  As far as sound goes, I can go to YouTube & play a song but, that's the only sounds I get from Chrome.
Take care.
Mike

I know that Downcast which is my prefered podcast player has a sleep timer function. I usually import the DVS movies I listen  to to either Downcast or VoiceDream Reader as I find both apps to be far superior than the default Apple podcast app. In fact, I just finished binge-watching/listening to the six previously released Star Wars movied yesterday so I can go see the new one later this week. I imported all six into VDR through its own import feature via google Drive.

You can import files through either app or also through a third party file managing app. In my case, I use FileBrowser. It is completely accessible and I’ve found the devs to be responsive to Voiceover user feedback.

I haven’t used  iTunes to import files  in I don’t’ know how long.

Well, I have converted to several video formats and none works with iTunes as showing up as a video. I think this is because it has no video to it and iTunes is not looking at the format only but for video as well. So If I was to use some kind of video editor and added some kind of video anywhere in the file it would then see it as a video .

When I change the format or convert it to a video file with a converter it then will even give me an option when I use the app key on the file to open in windows media center. So that tells me  that windows media center is just looking at the format and nothing else. As iTunes is looking for more.

So the solution is to just forget this as adding video is way too much. I will either tag it as music or audio books or podcast . more than likely just tag it as a music file and then create a playlist or folder and then sync with iTunes to my phone and just have it in the music app.

So my next Question is does the music app on the iPhone have a sleep timer built into it?  I know I can use the timer part of the clock on the iPhone but it would be nice if they had a sleep timer in the music app like they do in iBook’s.

Also do they have a sleep timer in the native podcast app ?

Yes, you could do both of the two previous suggestions, the unfortunate thing is, iTunes is iTunes. Because of piracy and illegal copying of protected media and all that, iTunes is very limited on what you can do with certain files and then extensions. I don't think just changing the file extension will be enough for iTunes to recognise the file is a movie file.

I have had a look at this myself, and have found that there is no file extension that iTunes will support if the file is an audio file. The thing is, to change the extension into a movie or video extension the file needs an image, and as you say, The movies you download are just audio.

Apologies, but I don't think what you are trying to achieve can be done. Please, however, let me know if anybody else can find a way to achieve what you are trying to do as it would be quite useful to have these movies on the iPhone.

Well, got some movies from the Blind Mice Mart movie vault. Now these is describe movies and they don’t have any video to them they just have the audio rip from them and then a person describing what is going on in the movie.

So the movies is in MP3 format. So the problem is I cannot get them to show up as movies in iTunes.

When I  add say one to iTunes and then go to music as that is where it is going to show up by default. Then I go to the file under music and I in my case is using windows but don’t know that matters here I think the process is the same. After I go to the file and use my app key on it and choose get info. Then go to the option tab under the get info box and where it says media kind and this is a combo box and I go into it I have several choices. Podcast, music, audio book and itunesU . Nothing to change the media kind to movie or video.

I think this is because it is a MP3 file.

So my question is how and what format do I need to change to in order for this file to be able to show up as a movie in that list or show up as a movie? So it will show up in movies instead of music or podcast or audio books ? Any help will be appreciated !

G'day Walt.
looks like the Uniden is the best of a bad bunch, not a bad radio but trying to find good software to program it is a pain!
I have several software packages to solve this problem:
you should get a subscription to www.radioreference.com as a start, they have mostly up to date frequency listings that can be downloaded to your scanner software then imported to your radio.
freescan supports the uniden scanners and the radio reference importing of frequencies.

I've been looking at information on various scanners (mostly Uniden models) and am pretty much confused and feeling like I don't have the information I really need. I know that I don't want a hand-held model and I don't want one that uses touch screen technology, so what's left? Based on your personal use and experience, what's a really good, blind-friendly TrunkTracker scanner? I do know that in addition to all the basics, I want S.A.M.E. weather alert and I'm not wedded to Uniden as a manufacturer, but if you do recommend another brand, please include information on where to buy. Just to show my low level of understanding, what's the difference between analog and digital models? Thanks for any/all feedback and suggestions.

Re: Looking for blind-friendly scanner recommendations

personally, I like the Icom homebase scanners, such as the IC-R8500, IC-R9000, and IC-R9500 especially. they seem to do just about everything one could want, and can also have a voice board fitted, to read out the frequency, which is great for when one finds something interesting, as one can actually know where to find it again.
they are at the expensive end of the range however, especially the 9500.
where are you?
if you are in the UK, I can easily tell you where these can be found, but I have a sneaking suspicion that you are not, so thought I would ask first.

Hi, you have to be a blind mice mart member first and sign in and then you will see the link. So here is the blind mice mart site below. If I give you the link only it will not show up as the movie vault as you are not sign in to blind mice mart. It will take you to the home page only for you to sign in. See link below.
