Wow. This one sure is a serious bug in Chicken Nugget! I’m just a day on it, but I haven’t yet found something that will work to ahcieve the desired deting all tweets result. At least with TWBlue, we know that it’s a work in progress.

I like it but there were sure easier ways of doing things with the Qube. For any of you using Chicken-Nugget, can you tell me how to clear my buffers? When I use the key combination mentioned in the help section or go to the timeline and enter on clear timeline, I get a message that the program is not responding and it won't clear them. I've written to the developer and, once again, no answers are provided.
 
I'm using Windows Vista Home, JAWS11, and IE8.
 
Thanks for any help.

Hi,
It's free (demo) for one month only. However, I've decided to download it
and have paid for the full version tonight. It looks like the good old days
of TheQube (and before that, Qwitter) are going, or gone; because MS have
decided to use the ctrl+windows combo a good deal more now in Windows10.

Re: Setting up a Wireless Printer

Thomas N. Chan
 

In most cases, to make a wireless printer to get onto a wireless network,
you need to wire it first.
You can either use it through a NIC cable if the new printer have it or a
USB from your computer to it.
Load the driver or CD software, which will help to detect the printer. Once
the computer have found it, that's where you can set it up for wireless
connection.
That's where you can ask the printer to find the wireless network, load the
info like wireless network encryption and password etc. once it got itself
onto the network, you can either share the printer out from the first
computer you set it up or load the driver one by one on those computer
connected to the same network subnet.

As for the software from HP, generally, its workable. You just need to
mouse around or jaws cursor around. You can do it with NVDA but I don't know
how to use that similar function like the other two screen reader.

If you are still not sure, ask a pair of working eyes with the software
either through physically there or through teamviewer.

I done with printer brand like HP, canon and brother so far. Wireless ones,
the concept it's the same. You can do it through wireless only but that some
model of HP and epson allows you to key in the wireless info through the
device itself but hey, it does not talk or some sort of tts. Beside that,
it's a no talking touch screen interface.

Hi Matt,
even though I didn't think your help would be helpful in my case, I went to the Jordan river anyway. Oops, there I go using bible moses of communication again.
anyway, I did turn my phone off, and sure enough, it worked like a charm. I don't think I'm completely in the sunlight yet, but at least I can see some light at the end of the tunnel. My thing is, I'm not sure what questions to ask just yet, so I'll keep using the phone until something dawns on me to ask.
Many thanks,

Re: windows media question

Matt
 

Well, you could use NVDA or WE or the demo of JFW. The other thing is to buy
a sound card and have two sound cards and then just mute the one with the
main screen reader you use. I would think but not sure that NVDA would have
a mute mode built in to it.

Have you taken all apps out of the app switcher and closed them out and also
any app running in the foreground and closed it totally out including from
the app switcher and then reboot the phone? If not do this and see what
happens. This usually fixes most problems.

I agree with statements that if you are running 8/8.1, there are fewer
reasons not to upgrade. The Windows 10 core is based on Windows 8 so
Windows 10 is essentially an updated version of Windows 8. Not taking into
account the privacy concerns, it basically just adds features to what you
already have including a Start menu. One of the things which made 8 less
popular was the lack of a Start menu. Upgrading from 8 to 10 is probably
less of a transition than upgrading from 7 to 10.

Now if you are running W7 I would say it is a choice but like I say there

Re: Replacing H800 BatteryRe: Wireless issues

Lisa Belville
 

Brent, not sure about storing the dongle because I use the headset daily with USB and Bluetooth.

As far as answering a call, the power switch has three settings: Off on the bottom, Bluetooth in the middle, and USB on the top.

If you're using the phones in USB mode and a call comes in, you need only move the switch to the middle setting, wait for the Bluetooth to connect, and press the answer/end call button which is on the right ear piece kind of in the middle toward the front of the headphones. Once the call is ended, you can reconnect to USB by moving the selector switch to the upper most position. The headset should switch between these two settings with no problems once they're successfully paired.

Also, there are beeps when the phones are connected for both Bluetooth and USB, but there's an additional double-beeping when the USB connection is made, but if you're using them in USB you have already heard this.

I just love this headset but wish I could use SIRI with it. If this is possible, I haven't figured out how and I've been using it for almost three years, so go figure. <grin>

I can see though how it would be helpful for certain people with certain

So as just being blind and no other handicap it might not really help. But I
can see other handicaps with blindness or without blindness in making it

the only thing that keeps me from upgrading is the fact I hear window eyes
will not work on 10. I also want to keep windows live mail and my current
internet explorer.

I agree with statements that if you are running 8/8.1, there are fewer
reasons not to upgrade. The Windows 10 core is based on Windows 8 so
Windows 10 is essentially an updated version of Windows 8. Not taking into
account the privacy concerns, it basically just adds features to what you
already have including a Start menu. One of the things which made 8 less
popular was the lack of a Start menu. Upgrading from 8 to 10 is probably
less of a transition than upgrading from 7 to 10.

Well, if I was myself running W7 I would not be in a big hurry to make W10
my default OS for windows! Now I do have W10 and I have it on the same
computer as my W7 . I do a dual boot so I can play around with it and stay
up to date with it. I at some point will make it my default OS and do away
with W7 but that is a long way off right now. Maybe towards the end of W7
life.

I just got this headset for Christmas. It works good on the computer with
the included USB dongle receiver. From what I've read, the battery wasn't
meant to be replaceable, but I could be wrong about that. I wanted it
mostly for Skype, Team Talk, etc, but it isn't too bad for music. I have
yet to pair my iPhone with it, but if a call came in while I'm on the
computer setting, does the button on the right, across from mute still
answer, or do you have to flip the switch to go between them? Also, I read
something about a slot where you can store the dongle, but I don't find
anything special on the left ear thing, unless the new H800's don't have
that any more. From my research, this is a headset that Logitech first
came out with in 2012, so changes could've been made since then.

Hi, Carlos, I'm a happy user of the Logitech H800 headset on windows
and with Bluetooth and my iPhone,But the battery's days of usefulness
are waning. If I can get someone to replace it, will I need to pair it
with Windows again? Bluetooth isn't an issue because I can do that
myself, but the pairing process with the Logitech pairing assistant
isn't accessible with the latest version of NVDA and the other option
of waiting for the flashing lights doesn't work for me because I can't
see them and managing the headset, a light probe and then finding the
track rewind/fast forward switch at the same time is impossible for me.

Thanks.

The H800 is nice and does not suffer from the same problem as the G930,
but as I said for my purposes it's range and battery life are not quite
long enough. Replacing the battery on the H800 is not difficult at all
and should not require the services of a place like Battery's Plus. It
is designed to be user replaceable. The cover on the left side of the
headset easily comes off and a replacement battery can be purchased
here on Amazon.

Hi Mr. Zolo:



Hmm, the Logitech H800 indicates with a tone when the battery is
running low. It gives up to six hours usage time when fully charged.
Also, during the charging process, you can still use the headset. It's
battery is replaceable albeit I'll need to take the headset to a place
like Battery's Plus to have this done.



As for the router, perhaps you are experiencing the interferences from
your microwave and related equipment. Please consider setting the
channel to 11 and I think this might improve things a bit.



My router which is an Actiontec is nearing its last legs and I'm in
the market for a new router; I prefer a 3200AC router with a built-in
DSL/Cable modem, but thus far, Ihaven't found one as yet. Perhaps such
a router DOES NOT exist.

I have yet to pair my iPhone with it, but if a call came in while I'm on the computer setting, does the button on the right, across from mute still answer, or do you have to flip the switch to go between them? Also, I read something about a slot where you can store the dongle, but I don't find anything special on the left ear thing, unless the new H800's don't have that any more. From my research, this is a headset that Logitech first came out with in 2012, so changes could've been made since then.

Hi Lisa,
My initial thought is that it should stay paired even after replacing the battery, but I also have not personally experienced some of the pairing issues that many other H800 users seem to have experienced. I have never had to use the pairing assistant.

Hi, Carlos, I'm a happy user of the Logitech H800 headset on windows and with Bluetooth and my iPhone,But the battery's days of usefulness are waning. If I can get someone to replace it, will I need to pair it with Windows again? Bluetooth isn't an issue because I can do that myself, but the pairing process with the Logitech pairing assistant isn't accessible with the latest version of NVDA and the other option of waiting for the flashing lights doesn't work for me because I can't see them and managing the headset, a light probe and then finding the track rewind/fast forward switch at the same time is impossible for me.

Thanks.

Lisa

The H800 is nice and does not suffer from the same problem as the G930, but as I said for my purposes it's range and battery life are not quite long enough. Replacing the battery on the H800 is not difficult at all and should not require the services of a place like Battery's Plus. It is designed to be user replaceable. The cover on the left side of the headset easily comes off and a replacement battery can be purchased here on Amazon.

Hi Mr. Zolo:



Hmm, the Logitech H800 indicates with a tone when the battery is running low. It gives up to six hours usage time when fully charged. Also, during the charging process, you can still use the headset. It's battery is replaceable albeit I'll need to take the headset to a place like Battery's Plus to have this done.



As for the router, perhaps you are experiencing the interferences from your microwave and related equipment. Please consider setting the channel to 11 and I think this might improve things a bit.



My router which is an Actiontec is nearing its last legs and I'm in the market for a new router; I prefer a 3200AC router with a built-in DSL/Cable modem, but thus far, Ihaven't found one as yet. Perhaps such a router DOES NOT exist.



Sincerely,

Olusegun
