Re: Self scan

I have never used one myself, but I have been with my sister in Vancouver, Canada, when she used these scanners.  There seemed to be problems when checking out  fruits, vegetables and other items without a barcode stamped on them.

 

Good luck

Subject: [TechTalk] Self scan

 

Hi folks.  I did a huge grocery shop on Friday and as a result of the amount of stuff I used a normal checkout rather than the self scan isle.  My personal assistant Anne normally uses the self scan but it got me thinking?  are these things accessible?  I don't hear feedback except for the blip when an item is scanned but as these self scan machines are becoming more and more numerous over here and I can see that self scan eventually will eliminate regular checkouts I wondered if there was some way a totally blind person could use them, either via a smart phone app or by using an ear piece or head set.  I guess this is as much an accessibility issue as much as a tech issue but I'm interested in any tech solutions to this problem.  Any ideas?  Walter.

Walt,
How are you highlighting the link to the bookmarklet? At least with JAWS,
sometimes using the Arrow keys does not correctly highlight a link so that
when you select
"Add to favorites..."
from the context menu, the main page is being added to the favorites bar
instead of the bookmarklet. Try highlighting the link with the Tab key
instead. I hesitate to share the contents of the bookmarklet since I have
been trying to figure out how it identifies a user. I have come to the
conclusion that it is probably not a cookie since I restored my system from
an image which was created before I ordered credits and it is somehow still
able to identify me. I have my favorites on a separate drive so they are
not affected when I restore from an image. So my thought is that the
bookmarklet file may contain unique ID strings which identify the user.
When I view it's contents, there are some cryptic strings which may or may
not serve this purpose.

And of course you can just clean install Windows on to the new SSD, but the whole point of using an image is to save yourself the trouble of having to reinstall applications and reconfigure all of your settings.

Re: New Solid State Drive

You can use the same computer to restore the image on to the new drive.  That part will not cause any conflicts.  There may be conflicts if you try to boot from the new drive while the old drive is still connected, but that has nothing to do with it being the same license.  It has to do with both Windows installations having duplicate SIDs AKA Security Identifiers, but as you say you can just connect the old drive to another computer or boot into something like Win7PE to wipe it clean/reformat it.

Re: Problem With Logitech MK520 Wireless Keyboard

They are the same, they are both Logitech MK520. I like this particular model because it has a place for your wrists when typing. It is not padded but it helps when you suffer from Carpel Tunnel Syndrome to have somewhere to place the wrists when typing. I wear a brace on the right hand, but having that area to rest my wrists is a great thing to have.

Also even if it is an Fn key, it might still cause the functions of the F keys to be inverted. The difference being that if it is an Fn key, which I suspect it is based on comments I am seeing online, it is not a toggle like the F-Lock key so you should try holding it down and pressing the F keys to see if they perform their normal functions. According to what it says in this thread,
<https://forums.logitech.com/t5/Keyboards-and-Keyboard-Mice/Invert-FN-mode/td-p/556922>https://forums.logitech.com/t5/Keyboards-and-Keyboard-Mice/Invert-FN-mode/td-p/556922
the Fn key operation can be inverted, but it requires that the SetPoint software be installed.

Hi, the link you gave below is blocked by IE on my computer! But I have no
problem with Rumola site and it is not blocked. I think you have some
problems on your computer . or this is a bad link below.
Now like I said you cannot copy the link from your favorites bar and send
you the link will not copy. You cannot copy the link from the site as it
don't work like that either. You have to save this to your favorites Bar/
bookmark tool bar. This is the only way. You cannot copy the link or save
the target or copy the target it don't work. I sure wish I could figure out
what is going on that you cannot save the bookmark to your favorites bar and
it work like it supposed to.
When you go to the heading bookmarklet and then tab to the link Rumola and
use your app key on that link what do you choose from that drop down menu?
Also when you get to the Heading bookmarklet are you tabbing to the Rumola
link or you continuing to arrow down to the link?

Reinstalling is the hard way to do it.  You can just use cloning or imaging software to copy which ever partitions you want to move on to the new disk.

Ok question when installing a new drive like this SSD . You have the old drive hooked up and in my case both W7 and W10 on it. So how would you install W7 and W10 on the new drive and it installed on the old drive? Now W10 Is easy just format and get rid of that partition. But W7 what about it? Don’t think I can format that partition and get rid of W7 while it is active and on that drive.  Cannot or would not be able to install it on the new drive till I got rid of it on the old drive? So trying to figure this out if I decided to add SSD to my computer and use my Old drive for just storage?

So for anyone who cares, I finally purchased and installed my new SSD last night.

The installation didn't go nearly as smoothly as I was hoping which is an understatement, but I finally got it all sorted out.  Although I suspect the problems were on my end and nothing to do with the drive itself.  Sometime in the next couple of days, I will tackle installing Windows 10 in a dual boot configuration which should be a piece of cake in comparison I say knocking on wood.  Hopefully this will allow me to provide more first-hand assistance with Windows 10 related issues.  I installed 10 for a while last year shortly after it was officially released to experiment, but certain things did not work reliably for me so I couldn't justify running it full time.


A Rumola-related request

Walt Smith
 

I've been totally unable to get Rumola to work in IE 11 and I'm making a
last-gasp request to someone on the list who has a working Rumola link on
their Favorites Bar. Since Windows generally won't allow you to send a link
as an attachment, would someone with a link that works in IE please do the
following:

1. Open your Favorites folder;
2. Locate and open the Favorites Bar folder that's inside the Favorites
folder;
3. Edit the Rumola URL file;
4. Send me the contents of that file either online or in a private note to
the address below.

I want to find out whether or not something in my setup is hosing things
every time I save the button to the Favorites Bar and causing the wrong URL
to be captured and placed into the link file. Right now, the only URLs in
*my* link file are https://www.skipinput.com and this is nothing more than
the Rumola web site main page. I am totally unable to get the expected
prompt to purchase credits when using the so-called "Bookmarklet" option
from the Rumola web page, which is the sole way of getting Rumola to work
with IE. For those who might ask, I've already looked at the web page source
and don't see anything helpful there that I might copy. Thanks in advance.

I can't help you right now, I've got to get ready to go to church in
about half an hour, but when I come back, I'll see if I can translate
what the techie said to you.

<sigh> It just amazes me that there are people in the world who are

somebody can translate this drek before I get home from Choir rehearsal
and mass and dinner, please do. "Click on"? Where was the guy's

cables. <sigh> Techie twits! I believe that Adison wants to change
the display settings so that his computer will not go to sleep, or
perhaps will not go to sleep as often.

Well, a dear friend of mine, gone now, used to say that stupidity is
the second most common element next to hydrogen.

It will work, but Drive Snapshot cannot store multiple partitions in a single image so you will have to capture each partition separately into it's own image.

Oh yes, and don't forget to swap the data cables on the two drives after cloning/restoring the image so that the new drive will be on controller 0.  You can also clone/reimage on to the new drive by placing it in an enclosure.

using Siri on a data connection

Troy Burnham
 

Hi All,
 
I added a pay as I go plan from t-mobile to my IPhone 5s this past Friday, but I tried on the way home from the store to have siri turn voiceover on for me since I turned it off to make it easier for the employees in the store to use the phone and siri told me she was having trouble with the connection, then a few minutes ago I again got away from my wifi connection and tried to get siri to open a few things and she wouldn't.  My data connection seems to be working because under cellular the data use kept increasing, and I've already been to applevis and found out that siri should work on a data connection, so what are some things that I need to check to trouble-shoot the problem?
 
Thanks.
 
Troy

The installation didn't go nearly as smoothly as I was hoping which is an understatement, but I finally got it all sorted out.  Although I suspect the problems were on my end and nothing to do with the drive itself.  Some time in the next couple of days, I will tackle installing Windows 10 in a dual boot configuration which should be a piece of cake in comparison I say knocking on wood.  Hopefully this will allow me to provide more first-hand assistance with Windows 10 related issues.  I installed 10 for a while last year shortly after it was officially released to experiment, but certain things did not work reliably for me so I couldn't justify running it full time.
