179 members in a bit less than a week is not too bad. At least in my
opinion. If the number of members does not increase significantly over the
next 2 or 3 weeks, then some promotion might not be unreasonable, but just
keep in mind that some members already seem to be having a problem with the

With all due respect I question the necessity of doing such. It’s been my

I've been thinking a bit about how to promote the list. I'm not sure about
this, but I think the person who edits Top Tech Tidbits would be willing to
run an item about the list. Perhaps other list members would have other
suggestions. I would say to wait before sending announcements to various
places until this is discussed further but a little promotion might bring in
many more members.

I had no luck using Windows Defender with Windows 10. It would scan, but I never could find the results. I also could not figure out how to change any settings.

Re: installing windows with speech

Carlos
 

Hi Aidan,
It is different in the utilities which are included and the default settings
used for the interface. Also, my images have been updated much more
recently. This is not a criticism of Bryan, it is simply fact. In
addition, the older version of the project on which Bryan's images are
based, has a problem when attempting to install 64 bit additions of Windows.
This problem was resolved in later versions of the project so it is not
present in my images.

Webbie is a browser developed for blind people.  It had some use years ago when some people were using primitive screen-readers like the one called Thunder that had no browse mode and no effective way of working with web pages using a regular browser and before NVDA was developed.  There is little or no reason to use it now, especially since the one somewhat useful feature I know about is now available in Firefox.  Webbie has a feature that removes links from web pages and let's you read an article without lots of links in the middle and at the beginning of the page.  But now, firefox has a very similar feature.  I'd have to look at it again before discussing it further.

Gene, J. J. from blind bargains might put in a spot.

Hi,
With all due respect I question the necessity of doing such.  It’s been my experience that lists like other living organisms grow best when tended well and left to their own devices and timing.
It seems to me that through word of mouth people who are meant to find their way here will in due course.

Re: The Hadley Training Seminars and such

 

Don't forget that they also have a youtube channel with small tutorials about one thing. I've listened to the seminars, just not the youtube bids.

Their stuff at Hadley is very good. They have seminars and such on a whole bunch of things.
I think you'll find them beneficial.

Hi

Sorry, I haven't followed this thread from the start. So my suggestion may not be what is being requested. Anyway, YouTube has video tutorials on there done by Hadley school. These tutorials are very indepth and are easy to follow.  Some of the things that are covered are the gestures used with voiceover, using seri & using dictation.

I apologize if this off topic for this thread.

Also some Apple stores offer classes for beginner iDevice users. One will have to call and inquire and schedule a time for a class.

Hi,
Well, sorry, I should have clarified, I'm more interested within IPhones and IPads as of now. I will probably choose the windows path over the Mac, though. I feel like windows is more opened.

Re: Assigning admins/moderators, was: (Directed messages)

john schwery <jschwery@...>
 


From what I have seen, from running and being on lists, an owner or moderator has to be a benevolent dictator.  He can get adive and seek opinions, but in the end, a list can't be run by committee.  He has to do what he thinks is right and go for it.

I agree.  I've also been a moderator and if people don't agree or there is a miscomunication things can get hary but, I must say Carlos, you're doing an excelent job.  You're not coming down hard on someone if they shouldn't have posted something.  People don't like that as we've found out on the other list smiles.  Just carry on the way you're doing and, there seem to be a lot of people who will give you advice.

Hi Joseph,
I appreciate the offer and I may or may not assign moderators at some point, but for now I would like the experience of doing it myself before handing over the responsibility to someone else.  Especially since this is my first time running a mail list.  Also, I think choosing a moderator is something that should be done with caution and careful consideration.  Too often I have seen problems caused when a moderator says something or handles a particular situation in a manner that conflicts with the opinion of the list owner.  If the correct person is not chosen and the moderator and list owner do not communicate or are simply not of like minds, I believe this is inevitable.

I agree with this and I would also like to emphasize keeping subject lines consistent in general.  I.E. If you would like to begin a different discussion, simply start with a new message.  Or if what you have to say is at least related to the thread to which you are responding, but may significantly side track the conversation, at least change the subject to reflect this.  I will have to work to follow this rule myself since I have not always been careful enough in this respect.

Believe me, it is not my desire to cause a problem.  But I am starting to see a problem on this list that frustrated me on the other list, specifically Blindtech.  I am talking about the practice of directing messages to a specific individual in the subject line.  I respectfully suggest that if anyone wants to direct his message to an individual that he do so via private email.  I say that because it screws up the sorting of threads badly when the actual subject is preceeded by the name of an individual.
