FW: [tabi] an IPhone app to identify objects to the blind #article

Matt
 

Well the App is called Aipoly Vision. My first impression is that it is a fairly good app for something this new. There is other apps that does similar things. but a little different. The first thing that comes to mind is TapTapSee and it is very good but this app does it in real time and you can also teach the app. That is considering you know what something is or you have visual help to tell you and then you can teach the app. All in all it is a very nice app and really recommend you adding it to your tool box of apps and such to help you out. I also recommend if you really like the app to leave them a small donation or at least a review in the app store. I also don’t know if it is for the Android platform as well or not. But it is on the Apple platform. So see link to it below. Enjoy!

Hi all,

 

Below is a link to an article a friend just sent me for an Iphone app named AI PolyVision.  You just turn it on and aim your I device and it begins describing to you what it sees in real time, and it’s very fast.

 

  I have to say the article makes it sound much better than the results I’ve had so far, but it’s free, so experiment and see for yourself what you think:

Hello All,
 
I get my internet from road runner, and when my router was installed I remember the man asking me what I wanted to use as my password.  Now I need to see if that password is still there though because when my mom turned her laptop on this morning she wasn't online, and when she went in where she could get reconnected there were 2 names that neither of us recognized.  The only reason I can think of for that happening is that somebody in my area may be using my wireless signal, but of course they'd either have to have my password and I haven't given that out to anybody, or maybe something has happened and my connection isn't secured with a password anymore.  How would I check this out using windows 7?  Btw my mom apparently didn't have to put in the password to get reconnected either so that's another reason that I think something may've happened to my password.

Routers are so affordable and will almost always  be better than what your iSP will provide, that it’s a no brainer if you have the means, to buy your own. Same goes for modems.

Hi folks. I came across an interesting website last week. It is Flight
stats and you can monitor in real time the progress of any flight. My
Personal Assistant has gone to Turkey for a week's break and I was able
to monitor her flight from origin to destination. This website gives you
the departure time, The longitude and latitude. It also gives the
distance from the departure airport and the remaining time to it's
destination. It gives the speed of the aircraft and it's compass heading
and also gives it's altitude. there is a image of the earth and it
pinpoints the aircraft on that graphic (that is of no use to me but might
be of interest for those with some sight). I was able to follow the
descent of her plane from 25,000 feet and 634mph and 61 miles from
landing all the way down to 135mph and an altitude of 10feet. Now all of
this was with my PC but there is an APP for the iPhone from the same
website. Before purchase I just wondered if anybody has used this and is
the app accessible? There is a free version with ads but I'd much rather
purchase the app and do without the ads but although it is very cheap, I
would like to know just how accessible the app is or if I should just
stick to the web site. Any help appreciated. Walter.

Are you sure the application isn't already running in the system tray and configured to run at startup? If the application were already running, this might cause the type of behavior you are describing since many programs of this kind are designed to only allow a single instance at a time.

We've uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version, but still nothing. Restarted the computer and still nothing. Tried hitting enter on the desktop icon for the program, tried running it as administrator with the context key, tried loading it from the twblue.exe icon in the program files folder and still nothing. Does anyone have any ideas or should we really say a final farewell to this great program? We're running Windows 10 with the latest build of NVDA and also have the latest version of JAWS, but it won't work that way either. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated? Thanks.

Re: computer not doing Windows update

Carlos
 

This is often caused by one particular update that won't install.  Usually the only way to troubleshoot this kind of issue, is to set your updates to manual and then install the new updates one by one until you figure out which one won't install so you can hide it.

I think this was discussed earlier, but I have never had a problem before until now.
 
My one computer did my updates fine yesterday, but my other did not.
 
It has been trying to update for about 36 hours and just sets there.
 
They are both using Windows 7 and the computer which will not update did the updates about 2 weeks ago with no problem.
 
I know the internet connection is working because I can network between the two and get online with no issues.
 
I have changed no settings on the computer and checked my update settings for Windows update and they are the same as they have always been.
 
Any suggestions?
 
Thanks.

Kimsan,

 

Try selecting the “Move” item in the context menue while focused on the folder that you want to delete, and when the Move Dialogue opens up, arrow down to the deleted items folder and then press Enter. See if this doesn’t move the folder, then try to “Empty” your deleted items folder to permantly delete the folder.

No.

I am in one of the folders as I type this. The context menu says move, close, etc. Now, under the folder option there is a delete split button with a few options for example, empy junk folder, empty delete folder but no delete folder. I’m going to try one more thing since I’m here.

 

Ah, forget it. That didn’t work.

 

I was on the gmail site and I saw the labels which are the same exact name of what I am seeing in the trash, so I deleted the labels but they are still under the trash in wlm. I’m all confused and have no more beer until after work tomorrow lol.

Do  you get any kind of explanation as to why you cannot delete a folder that you created? These should be the easiest ones to delete. I see the “New Folder” item on the context menu for WLM, which will create a folder within an account. Is there a Move command in this menu if you create your own folder within an account? If so, click on this and then move the folder to the Deleted Items folder, then choose Empty Deleted Items.

The folders I’m referring to are folders I’ve created.  They are not the standard folders created by providers. I’ve tried multiple times to delete them but a no go.

Hi again Kimsan,

 

The folders that you see under any one given email account depends on that particular provider. In other words, gmail might provide different folders than yahoo, etc. You should always have an Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Trash or Junk folder and a Deleted items folder, these are default to WLM. Just what the email service provider also includes, you do not have too much control over, and any possibility of deleting these folders would have to be done on the account providers web mail page through your browser.

 

Michael

WLM is beginning to PO me lol.

 

Ok, I have my gmail, aol and charter email accounts set up as imap all in wlm.

Under my kimsansong@... account treview, there is a trash folder treview, when I expand it with right arrow, press down arrow, I hear the name of sub folders.  Are these ssubfolders in the trash folder or are they not.  What I want to do is delete the folders so I tap the alt key, right arrow to the folder tab and select delete folder but then it gives me the keytip to empty the deleted items, which it does but I want those subfolders gone.  Another thing I would do is press enter and go into the subfolders and rinse and repeat by tapping the delete folder option under the folder tab but it’s still there. Ug, I’m tempted to go drink… lol

So you thinking they are (Facebook) first implementing this with Facebooks apps on IOS devices and Android devices and so on? I guess you have to start somewhere but wonder who told them this was where to start at ? As logic would say implement this on the Facebook mobile site first and then go from there.

The Facebook photo description has not been added to the computer platform yet.

JMO Facebook should use the photo description as twitter. Or perhaps combine the features

Ok, I thought it was an iOS thing because I just went onto fb with my computer using jaws and it didn�셳 say nothing like 2 faces, etc. I did the same thing with the phone and it spoke some details.

So if it�셲 a fb pic, why isn�셳 it working on the computer and only the phone?

IOS does not do this! This is a Face book feature! The closest thing to this on IOS is live photos and this allows for an audio tag to be put with a photo. But it will not recognize a photo that is just taken and is setting in the library.

Now you could use TapTapSee and pick something from your photo library and TapTapSee will recognize what is in the photo and this could be helpful and then you label the photo. The problem is the photo you just label in the photo library does not stick with the photo if it is moved or something. So it is not a tag just a label.

I did not know this about iOS. I do know that Facebook is adding automatic text descriptions to the photos uploaded to its sight now, but like you explain, they just are not quite descriptive enough to be of a lot of use. It is my understanding that Twitter now allows one to add his own description to a picture uploaded to their website. I think that would be better.

I�셫 not too much of a geek when it comes to the iPhone but with photos I�셶e noticed when I post a pic to my timeline it will say things like two people and blue skies. Haha, at least I know there are two people in the photo! Now, if it can only tell me more detail for when I go around snapping pics of women, like the color of their skin. I�셫 trying to find an Asian woman. Thoughts? Not about the Asian woman thing but how much info vo is giving out about photos now. Pretty cool, I say.

It's worth noting the $500 is only to buy a few of the devices. I think a
single router is only $250, but for $250 you can buy a very powerful router
that can do more than this brand. I personally don't mind logging into the
UI with a browser on my PC. LifeHacker had a very good review recently. I'm
sure you'll be able to find the article running a search on their site.

For that size of an investment to cover your entire house, it had better be
accessible. I have a large house that is not Wy-Fy friendly, so I pay an
extra $10 per month to Comcast and have a second network within my house.
Once configured on all of your devices, they switch automatically from one
net work to the other as I move around the house. I don't often have an
extra $ 500 to spend to upgrade my internet network at one time.

Hi,

I see there is a new thing out that will replace your router and help with
spreading your wifi signal better around your house it is called a eero.

www.eero.com

I see the configuration is done with an ios or android app. I wonder if
anyone has used this or if they know if the app is accessible?

Thanks for any help.

Re: computer not doing Windows update

Matt
 

Well, that is a little different than her problem as it will not get the updates at all I understand. I don’t know why you don’t get notified of updates if you have it set that way. I personally have my set to manual and just have a reminder set to check once a week for updates to W7 and W10 .

My wife and I are in the same situation.  We both use win 7, no malware or viruses.  If we manually get the updates, we can get them.  But our puters no longer notify us about the updates.  Our setting haven't changed.  We both use malware bytes, pro.

One reboot the PC first and then see what happens. If no go then you might have a virus or malware . if the computer don’t do the trick by rebooting it then do a virus scan and also a malware scan with something like malware bites.

I think this was discussed earlier, but I have never had a problem before until now.

 

My one computer did my updates fine yesterday, but my other did not.

 

It has been trying to update for about 36 hours and just sets there.

 

They are both using Windows 7 and the computer which will not update did the updates about 2 weeks ago with no problem.

 

I know the internet connection is working because I can network between the two and get online with no issues.

 

I have changed no settings on the computer and checked my update settings for Windows update and they are the same as they have always been.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks.

 

Vicki
