Theoretically it should be possible to block Windows updates using the hosts file, but it is most likely not possible to block updates selectively.  I.E. Only driver updates.

I doubt this could be done, but does the host file control access to the update site?  If you placed an incorrect address in the host file for update site, could that stop automatic updates and driver updates?  It doesn't sound plausible to me and I don't know what the host file controls.  But perhaps this suggestion is worth something.

Yes you almost have it. First before doing the three finger swipe down touch at the very top where you will get the time and wifi status and such then swipe down with three fingers. It is first very important to touch where you get your time and battery status and such first! HTH

Re: Printing Envelopes

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
Jumping into this thread late so forgive me if I repeat something already said. I know that accessibility in the envelope printing dialog has taken a bit of a hit in recent versions of Office with some screen readers. but I just wanted to point out that while screen readers such as Jaws For Windows falters a bit in here and claims it's a Microsoft issue, NVDA, System Access and even Microsoft's Narrator (the latter doing the best of all) are better. I.E. Narrator reads the address fields flawlessly under Windows 10. I can't speak to earlier versions of Windows with Microsoft Office 16 as I haven't access.
I just thought I'd mention this if knowing it might make things easier for some.

Or, just out of curiosity, some kind of html css template where you can fill

The simplest way is to press Alt A to activate the

submenu. You can also select it directly from the Favorites Bar, but that
requires a bit of tabbing around since there is no shortcut to activate it.

Subject: [TechTalk] best usb powered speakers

Hello, does anyone have a good sounding USB powered speaker system that, you do not have to use the audio jack on the PC?  I cant find anyone, they all seem to use the audio jack and my sound card is going out and I thought to just get speakers that don't have to use the sound card!  Thank you, Thanks, Heather

Have you checked out the current price of the 2nd gen stream. With the
Canadian dollar worth only 70 cents USDyu may find the price quite
attractive.

Ron -

I haven't seen any particular problems with time-related issues on the VR
Stream list, but the biggest complaint; one that I share very strongly; is
that Humanware doesn't seem to listen to their users very well. There are
issues that have been reported to them over several firmware releases that
have never been addressed as far as any of us can tell and we're frankly
getting frustrated. Having said this, though, I would strongly encourage you
to go ahead and spring for the new Stream -- it's a fabulous piece of
equipment and about the only reading/listening device that I use any more.

Hi Group,

I have heard for a while now about the VR Stream Second Generation. It
sounds like a nifty little piece of hardware. By the stroke of luck and
my 2 or 3 part time no where dead end jobs, I have been able to save up
about 400 dollars US discretionary income to make the purchase. I have
heard a lot of good things about the stream. I am a bit concerned about
one thing: the servicing and technical assistance. It's not because the
people at Humanware aren't nice and cooperative, but my biggest concern
is that the home base for the company is in Canada. I have had had
experiences with service issues with Canadian companies. Principally,
the mail across boarders seems to take for ever with delivery and
returns. That is to say, with one ham radio company from Toronto--a
mere 90 miles or so away from where I live near Buffalo, NY, it took 3
months for one item to be serviced and returned.

So my question is: what type of experiences has anyone had concerning
services for Humanware products? I am interested particularly in folks
living in the USA who have had service issues.

Thanks for any input.

Is there a way other than in clumsy Microsoft Word to print addresses on
envelopes?
Or, just out of curiosity, some kind of html css template where you can fill
in the addressee and return address, and then print it out from firefox or
someplace.

Ok now I did it but must create account and buy credits right?
Original message:

I have revised the instructions to make them a bit more thorough and
complete. Note that these instructions will work with IE. They may or may
not work with other browsers that do not already support the extension
version of Rumola, but the specifics will vary.
1. Go to the main Rumola website here,
http://skipinput.com/
2. Highlight the link labeled
.. RUMOLA ....
with the Tab key (not the Arrow keys). It is important to use the Tab key
since the Arrow keys may or may not properly highlight the link.
3. Note that pressing Enter on the link before this next step may possibly
make it more effective, but it is not strictly necessary. In either case,
after you have highlighted the link with the Tab key and possibly pressed
Enter, press the Applications key and choose
"Add to favorites..."
from the context menu.
4. In the
"Create in"
combo box, select
"Favorites Bar"

How to drag the bookmarklet to the toolbar and save it there? Cannot
solve this at the moment.
Original message:
It is a capture software that solves captures on web pages and you can get
it here: http://skipinput.com/
BTW: you can get the extensions that works on several browsers or you can
get the bookmark feature which works on any browser with internet
connection. I think the extension is for Firefox, Safari and google
chrome
maybe another one not sure. Or the bookmark feature you can use with any
browser with internet connection example: IE .
