Re: Cannot activate qRead after purchase?

Kwork
 

Jessica, after uninstalling QRead, do the following:
1. Use Windows Explorer or My Computer to navigate to your Program Files folder where Qread is installed. If using a 32-bit Windows, the folder is at
C:\Program Files
If using a 64-bit Windows, you want to go to
C:\Program Files (x86)
Inside that folder, if you have a program called QRead, delete it.
2. Press Windows key + r for the run dialogue. In the edit box, type the following, or copy and paste the following line:
appdata
In the list of folders that will come up, enter the roaming folder. Inside, you should find another folder called QRead. Delete it.
That should clear all traces of your previous QRead installation.
Try installing the program once again and see if it will let you go through the activation process. It's possible that something in your QRead.conf file was corrupting things a bit when trying to activate.
Let us know how this works. Good luck. I use QRead on a daily basis. One of the best purchases I ever made.

Hi,

The option to “activate” is greyed out.

I tried to remove the program from my computer, & reinstall it, but it didn’t work.

How can I fix this?

Re: tablets and keyboards

Quentin Christensen
 

I hadn't encountered those issues re USB on Android, although most of
the devices I've used have been either Nexus or Samsung, and the
cheaper brand ones I've used I actually hadn't tried using with a USB
keyboard so not sure - is it something likely to more affect the
"bargain bin", hard to find a brand type devices mostly?

Re the iPad keyboard, it was a few years ago, so may not be as much of
an issue today, but it was a generic brand keyboard sold for working
with iOS (which was what it was bought for, and working with my wife's
iPhone 4, it worked fine) - when I connected it to my Android, which
was a Samsung Galaxy S (yes the original S - told you it was a few
years ago! Mind you I do still have that S, setup now for the kids to
play on). It was weird, the keys seemed to be mapped to all kinds of
random things - eg (just making these up as I don't have it in front
of me) say "s" was mapped to volume down, "d" was mapped to open the
notification shade, "f" typed a "3" and so on. I'm sure I tried
changing the language and keyboard layout and whatever other settings
I could find, though that's more than just the wrong language setting!
Pretty sure we still have the keyboard, so I'll drag it out later and
see what I can do with it now. Actually as you say in your other
message, modern Bluetooth keyboards don't suffer as many phantom keys
and other issues as older ones so maybe it's partly that too.

If I may ask, what issues did you have in typing on the keyboard said to be compatible with iPads? Was it with the special iPad-specific keys, or was it with the normal keys? If the former, this is more or less normal, though not usual. If the latter, I, for one, would be most interested to hear of it, this shouldn't happen and I would be interested in knowing what brand it does so as to avoid it.

I had a play with a really nice one for Apple actually - it was by Logitech and had magnetic hinges so you could clip it on to the edge of the iPad, but then to stand it up solidly, it had a groove along just above the keys where you could sit the iPad so it leaned at a nice angle to work at. Not sure what the model number was for that.

You can get keyboard cases for various tablets - that is a case for your tablet which comes with a keyboard built in. I've had mixed success with these but then that's probably because I've had tablets which didn't have an official keyboard case and then got a cheap one off eBay *grin*. If it's something you want from the outset then to be honest I'd probably go for something that comes with a detachable keyboard from the start. They come in all three flavours - for Windows you have a heap of choices culminating in Microsoft's own Surface pro or Surface book, but there are options down to a couple hundred dollars. For Apple you've got the iBook I think from memory.
For Android Google's Pixel C is getting fantastic reviews though again there are other options as well. Asus were doing a nice line in them for awhile but I think all their new transformer books are Windows 10 now.

Anyway, there are certainly options yes!

I use send space a lot for sharing files. I like the paid account for the

secondary to me. But now with the Canadian loonie wort seventy cents USD,
my pro account costs me 132 u s dollars. So, I'll suck it up and enjoy all

It works out to 36 cents a day I spend more than that on my basic cell

Re: tablets and keyboards

Aman Singer
 

Hi Quentin,

You can connect a USB keyboard to an iPad using the camera connection kit Apple sells. I have done this myself, and this seems more or less normal, for confirmation see
http://arstechnica.com/apple/2010/04/ipad-camera-connection-kit-has-hidden-usb-capabilities/
Which, though old, is still applicable. Sometimes the special keys don't work on certain keyboards and sometimes keyboards draw too much power, or try to, but this depends on the keyboard rather than the iPad. I have had similar issues with one keyboard under Android, but that was an odd keyboard. Generally, having tried a few USB keyboards, I have run into trouble on only that weird one with the camera kit.
As for the iPhone, the original post didn't ask about that, just about tablets, so I was focussed on those. I can tell you for sure that the iPhone 4s and 5 did not work when connecting a keyboard through the camera kit, I tried. I have heard rumblings that the 6 and above do work, but have not had this confirmed and have not tried it myself. The reason I tried before and haven't recently is that, some years ago, Bluetooth keyboards were a great deal worse than they are now. At this point, double keying, keys stuck down, dropped connections, phantom keys being entered, and so on are either things of the past or very close to being so with the newer boards. I should also say that you can get keyboards in all sorts of sizes and with all sorts of key feels, there's no need to look desperately for one which doesn't make you want to tear your hair out in handfuls.
HTH,
Aman

Hi,



There are thousands of keyboard peripherals for tablets. All
the major operating systems for tablets (Windows, iOS, Android, Linux,
etc), support Bluetooth keyboards. Because they are standardized, the
Bluetooth profiles do not differ significantly from keyboard to
keyboard except by version, and versions are backward compatible
though it is generally better to obtain the latest version your keyboard and tablet will support.
Therefore, connecting a Bluetooth keyboard to a tablet is usually easy.

If you’re looking for USB, most tablets support USB keyboards as well.
This includes iOS, Windows, Linux, and the majority of Android
tablets. There are some Android devices which do not support USB
keyboards, but it’s getting to the point where you have to work to find one.

If you’re looking for keyboards built into cases or covers, you might
like to try googling your tablet name and “keyboard cover” or “

Keyboard case”. There are quite a few of these for the latest tablets,
sometimes made by the manufacturer (Microsoft makes a cover for its
Surface units, for example).

I hope all that is of use.

Re: Free Football Radio Oddity With Firefox; Was I Hacked?

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

I played around with settings under Firefox. I cleared the history and told Firefox not to remember history. This seems to have solved the issue to a degree. I don't have a problem with the Free football Radio site now.

As far as viruses or hacking, I do have the latest version of ESET anti virus--the paid version. I did not have any problems with any other sites and everything seems to be working fine. I have no crashes of programs and I have no loss of data or threats or high jacking of anything except for that one site. Others say they have had the POW website come up when they tried the Free football radio, but some say that was temporary.

So again, I wonder if anyone could enlighten me: the experts: Gene, Carlos, Tom--you know who you are?

Hi Group,

The strangest thing is happening with my Firefox Browser and Free Football Radio. As mentioned on occasion in the past, I also use an old text based browser called Lynx from the old UNIX days. It was ported to Windows about 17 years ago, but not much more development on it has been done. Still, it works for most sites--with significant limitations on such things as JAVA and scripting of various types.

For laughs and giggles, I tried accessing the Free football Radio site with Lynx; http://www.freefootballradio.com. It loads perfectly. Of course, you can't really listen to radio there, but the page with all it's links and format is there. Yet immediately after I loaded the site into Lynx, I tried again in Firefox and it did not work. I keep getting this pow web server site.

I then tried with Internet Explorer and what do you know? It works with Internet Explorer.

So again, was I hacked? What could cause Firefox to be constantly redirected to this Pow Web? Could clearing some cookies or something solve the issues?

Hi,



There are thousands of keyboard peripherals for tablets. All the
major operating systems for tablets (Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, etc),
support Bluetooth keyboards. Because they are standardized, the Bluetooth
profiles do not differ significantly from keyboard to keyboard except by
version, and versions are backward compatible though it is generally better
to obtain the latest version your keyboard and tablet will support.
Therefore, connecting a Bluetooth keyboard to a tablet is usually easy.

If you’re looking for USB, most tablets support USB keyboards as well. This
includes iOS, Windows, Linux, and the majority of Android tablets. There are
some Android devices which do not support USB keyboards, but it’s getting to
the point where you have to work to find one.

If you’re looking for keyboards built into cases or covers, you might like
to try googling your tablet name and “keyboard cover” or “

Keyboard case”. There are quite a few of these for the latest tablets,
sometimes made by the manufacturer (Microsoft makes a cover for its Surface
units, for example).

I hope all that is of use.

Is there such a thing as a keyboard (periphial device) that can be used with
a tablet computer?



Thanks

Hi Carlos,
Do you mean the IOS iDevices? If so, try: (mail man, essentially....) idevices-request@gatewayfortheblind.com

Yep thanks Rajmund. Figured that one out.

That iDevices list does not have a direct subscription address as far as I
can tell. Now hopefully someone can provide subscription and posting
information for the most popular of the Window Eyes mailing lists.

does anyone know of an Android list other than the eyes free list? As
that is such a huge list I would prefer something a little smaller.
