Hi TerriLynne,
I wasn't really referring to any major software packages. Most of the
problems I experienced were specific to my own configuration and were
primarily related to tweaks/scripts that I personally use and in one case a
driver for an audio interface.

Hi Bill,
First, welcome to the list.
To select a different player to be your default player, follow
these
steps:
1. Press Windows+I to open Settings.
2. From Settings, navigate to System/Default apps and press ENTER..
3. Press TAB until you land on music. Press SPACE, then use TAB to
select the player you want and press ENTER. Do this for the video app.
Regarding opinions and other Windows 10 goodies, what would you
like to know? In terms of system security and privacy, it depends
(some say it's good, while others say it's a bad thing). Regarding
accessibility, I can testify that it is a work in progress
(nowadays I'm investigating accessibility of various so-called
universal Windows
apps with NVDA).
In regards to screen reader, I'm the resident NVDA developer here
so I can tell you how NVDA does things with Windows 10, and we do
have expert screen reader users (like Gene asner and Carlos) who
can tell you about how their screen readers work with Windows 10.

Hi all. If I were to buy, lets say a portable CD player or even DVD player

work? If an item lay for 15, 20 or 25 years without use, after that time
would it still work and play the media it was intended for? I kinda
remember a number of years ago my hi-fi dealer saying that electronics
should be turned on and used a little at least once or twice a year
otherwise the entropy effect kicks in and the electronics, especially the
copper wiring begins to deteriorate. It seems the current passing through
the wiring is what keeps it in good working order. Anybody got any thoughts
on that, any electronic engineers among us? Walter.

Subject: [TechTalk] Looking for an AC router

Hello list,

So I’m in the market to upgrade from my trusty TP-Link N router to an AC router. A family member recently moved in with me and with all the streaming and the fact that both my wife and I work from home, I’m noticing that I need a more reliable/faster connection. I own my own Surfboard 6141 modem because there was no way I was just going to give TWC 6 bucks a month in rental fees for a crappy docsis 2.0 modem.

Anyway, the house is pretty big. Around 3,300 square feet. I’d like to get something that can more or less cover the whole place.

Can anyone recommend anything that is solid in performance and that is reasonably accessible as far as interface. I tried my hand at a Lynksis AC router last year, but for the life of me, I couldn’t get it to get beyond super slow speeds. That’s when I turned to the TP-Link N router. It’s actually a great little $20 router and I’ve been over all happy with it, but alas, too many tablets, computers, smart phones and roku’s/Apple TVs I suppose.

I was inclined to just wait for a deal on a refurbished Apple Extreme AC router as I’ve heard good things about it, but thought I’d ask if others have had any luck with other makes/models?

 

Thanks,

Hi all,

I like this thread. It is always a good idea to question any information or opinion which uses superlatives in its rhetoric. Beware the "always" the "never", the "must", the "have to" and so on.

Ask for evidence. Where did the info comfrom? Who posted it? When was it posted? Why was it posted ...?

Finally, if it sounds too bad to be true, it probably is. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Discrimination skills make a competent netizen.

Re: Large amounts of traffic was considering to start with Apple machines

Carolyn Arnold
 

Thank you, Joseph.

The only weird thing I have going on now, and I think someone could just tell me what to do or that it is normal, is so much of the time I have to hit Windows M to get to the Desktop. A lot of the time I hit Alt4 and get to it; sometimes from Outlook, I have to do F4 twice. I was told at JAWS that I'd find that Windows M was going to be one of my best friends. I Alt Tab, because I don't want to shut down leaving something open.

Anyway, thanks, and have a great day.

People weren't bickering about who can help the best. One member of
the list insulted other list members repeatedly. If the list had been
properly moderated, the insulting conduct would have been stopped
immediately. As one member who was repeatedly insulted and talked
down to by the member, I resent your characterization. I did not
bicker and whine. If someone publicly talks down to me on a list or
states that I am providing dangerous solutions to problems when they
are not,I am going to publicly defend myself and others have the right
to do so as well. And it's not just a question of people defending
themselves. New members come to lists all the time. If someone
inaccurately disparages another members advice, indicating that is
dangerous or inadequate when it is not, then the person who is
disparaged should have the right to defend their answers so that new list members won't form erroneous opinions about who is giving good advice.

This list, which will be properly moderated, should not have any
such problems.

Hi, well, there is several ways you can do this install

Which boot camp is fairly like just installing windows like on any
hard drive. I think I would prefer boot camp to a virtual windows but
it is a choice. Now if you not going to use this thing as your primary machine you
might not want to get the latest and greatest . You might want to if
thinking of a lap top go with the Mac book air the13 inch or the 11 inch.
They also have brought back the mac book as well so that might be
worth looking at. But all this being said this late in the year I

I’m using for fourteen years or so the system operation of
Microsoft.
Now, I use Win 7 pro and think to upgrade it – when Jaws
17 is out, soon.
I’ve two laptops, one is 8 years and the other one is five
years old.
I think to start now using the laptop of Apple and as I do
understand – I’mtalking about MACBOOK PRO.
I really wish to get your thoughts, your experience with
that machine.
which one do I have to purchase and any other helpful
information.
I’ve read about it but really don’t have any experience
and the world and the way Apple acts with its systems.
Again, I do understand that it is a very general question
but any information, any experience will be greatly appreciated.
I’m totally blind and use Braille Display and it’s a very
important point for me.
I also know that I can install the system of Microsoft on
these machine of Apple and wish to know how really this works.
thanks for any output.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Electronics and entropy

Hi. I was just wondering because technology moves at such a rate that what
is new now is soon old and obsolete. Many people enjoy collecting the stuff
when new and keeping it for decades. I bet somebody somewhere has kept one
of the very first iPhones and kept it new in it's original packaging. There
are so many old products that would be interesting to play with such as one
of the very first compact cassette recorders or a unused 8track cartridge
machine (I enjoyed them). Or what about a video 2000 machine that Philips
introduced or a new betamax video player/recorder. Many of these things in
years to come will be valuable as collectors' items. A lot of old
technology has lasted over a century but they were mainly mechanical and
were durable, such as the old wind up gramophones. The modern technology
though is electronic and digital and I just wondered if these things would
be as durable and still function after a few decades if they were kept in
their original packaging and stored in suitable conditions. Of course, some
might work but since the media isn't available they would be of no practical
use. For example; a TV set bought in the late 1940's or early 1950's might
still work but since in the UK the broadcasting of the format it needs to
function no longer exists and eventually in the UK FM radio will cease so
if anybody bought one of the very first FM radios, eventually there will be
nothing for it to pick up but that isn't so of things like CD or DVD players
because if you have some stuff on Disc then it could still be played in
decades to come, if the hardware still worked. Walter.

Hi all. If I were to buy, lets say a portable CD player or even DVD player
and left it in it's original packing for a number of years, would it still
work? If an item lay for 15, 20 or 25 years without use, after that time
would it still work and play the media it was intended for? I kinda
remember a number of years ago my hi-fi dealer saying that electronics
should be turned on and used a little at least once or twice a year
otherwise the entropy effect kicks in and the electronics, especially the
copper wiring begins to deteriorate. It seems the current passing through
the wiring is what keeps it in good working order. Anybody got any thoughts
on that, any electronic engineers among us? Walter.

Re: Looking for an AC router

NORMAN
 

Hi.
I've had good luck with the buffalo routers, although have never specifically played with the AC band.
Over all, you get what you pay for in routers if you use stock firmware.
You could get something that is compatible with dd-wrt or open-wrt and get a performance jump that way.
I agree with the rest of the people, for reliability you will need multiple access points.
Exactly what i would recommend to do this depends a lot on how the building is set up. For example, does it have cat 5-e or cat 6 wiring? If not, are you willing to run wires? If not, you could investigate power line technology. I would not recommend a repeater except as a last resort because these usually perform much slower than the main router.

So I’m in the market to upgrade from my trusty TP-Link N router to an AC router. A family member recently moved in with me and with all the streaming and the fact that both my wife and I work from home, I’m noticing that I need a more reliable/faster connection. I own my own Surfboard 6141 modem because there was no way I was just going to give TWC 6 bucks a month in rental fees for a crappy docsis 2.0 modem.

Anyway, the house is pretty big. Around 3,300 square feet. I’d like to get something that can more or less cover the whole place.

Can anyone recommend anything that is solid in performance and that is reasonably accessible as far as interface. I tried my hand at a Lynksis AC router last year, but for the life of me, I couldn’t get it to get beyond super slow speeds. That’s when I turned to the TP-Link N router. It’s actually a great little $20 router and I’ve been over all happy with it, but alas, too many tablets, computers, smart phones and roku’s/Apple TVs I suppose.

I was inclined to just wait for a deal on a refurbished Apple Extreme AC router as I’ve heard good things about it, but thought I’d ask if others have had any luck with other makes/models?

Gerald,

I hope the below helps. I noticed this info was missing on the page
from the link that was provided earlier.

Microsoft Speech Platform - Runtime (Version 11), x86. Note that you
must install the x86 version even if your system is 64 bit.

Hi.
Speed.
They are much slower than espeak.
I had the speech platform set up on win 7 at one point but there was a noticeable difference.

That's a very good idea! The default voice is really horrible and I
personally know at least a handfull of people who didn't give NVDA a
chance due to that fact. Since I have phone conversations with folks
because of my business, I always recommend they try NVDA if the
subject of screen readers comes up and I've learned to add the
statement that they can change to a different language and variant or
even use a SAPI5 voice. I've helped a lot of people get set up with
the Microsoft Speech Platform 11 voices and they're very happy using
NVDA now. Laz

One of the things that turns off a lot of people to NVDA is E-Speak. In my
opinion, something should come up in the instalation sequence asking people
if they want to choose another voice and giving them the selection of voices
that are unrestricted on the computer. A lot of people who don't know much
about screen-readers simply assume that it sounds the way it sounds and
don't use it once they hear the installation voice.

Sorry, I saw on another email that it was Australian. either way In my
opinion it is bad. But I also realize that what one person thinks is bad,
another person likes it so I should keep this particular opinion to myself.

My apologies.

Hi,

Actually, I believe e Speak is supposed to be British?

I don't think there is anything wrong with your hearing when it comes to
ESpeak. It makes me want to grit my teeth trying to understand it and to
tolerate the very sound of it. I love Australian accents but this is
terrible. I will probably spend more time trying to use and learn NVDA
now
that the voice is so much more pleasant.

Good, I like NVDa; I just can't stand that ESpeak. It's too robotic and
the
accent is too sharp. I don't have a problem with real people with
Australian
accents; I understand them just fine. Somehow, those voices are just too
something. I've tried running them real slow and still can't get used to
them. Maybe it's my hearing, or, perhaps I just need to try longer.

Glad I could help. Be sure to run the Microsoft runtime file first and
then
the zira-pro. I did this while NVDA was running and then went into the
Preferences setting then synthesizers and found the voice. It is
responsive
and understandable.

Never mind, I lied, it did download. I just didn't get the noise I
usually
get when something finishes. Thanks for sending me the link again, Marie.

Monica,
If you download the zip file that was posted earlier, the correct files
are
included. I just downloaded it and installed the runtime file and the
zira-pro voice on my desktop and I must say it is a vast improvement over
ESpeak. In case you missed the zip file, here is the link:

Is the 86 version on the page, or do have to find that somewhere else?
I'm
asking because you said the info was missing.
