Re: problems listening to Sirius Xm online

Michael Mote
 

Hi Donald!  I have used the on-line version of the Sirius XM player with JAWS versions 16 and 17.  I have been successful on numerous occasions.  Firefox is also a good way to access the on-line content.  I would be happy to show you what I know.  Explaining it in an email might not be very easy to follow.  I’d be glad to help you at a time that is convenient for you.

Subject: [TechTalk] problems listening to Sirius Xm online

 

I welcome responses from anyone who can reliably negotiate the channels with a Windows PC on sirius xm dot com.  I especially hope to hear from Carlos who has said in the past that he is able to do this.

 

I have never been able to select and listen to a channel on this web site using Window-eyes 9.4.  However, using Jaws 16, I have been able to do this on a couple of occasions as recently as this past Wednesday.  However, since then, using Jaws 16 and Internet Explorer 11 on a Windows 10 desktop, when I go to:

 

http://player.siriusxm.com

I can no longer find the search field where in the past I had inserted either a channel name or a channel number, after which I would press enter and the channel would begin to play.  When I was successful, after hitting enter, I would see the name of the channel I had selected; and just above this would be some sort of graffic which when I clicked on it, would cause the content to play.

 

So now I can't figure out just what I am doing differently or if something has changed.

 

So if any of you are consistently successful at this, please give me some ideas as to what might be wrong.  I have not attempted to use Firefox.  Thank goodness that the IOS app is far more accessible.

 

Thanks in advance.

I want to use Fine Reader to read a page after it has been scanned as is possible with Open Book.

If this is not possible, how can I force the page to be read?

Thank you for your help.

Re: cortana and music

Carlos
 

Unfortunately, configuring Winamp as the default player does not make it the default for all formats and streams.  My guess is that Groove is probably still used as the default player for music streams.  I don't use Cortana so I have no idea where exactly it searches for songs.

Hi,

 

When requesting Cortana to play a song, it opens up in groove, how can I have it open up in winamp and play?

 

I thought by setting winamp as the default player that would do the trick, but no.

 

Thanks.

Re: Disk partitioning software

Both should be able to partition SD cards. As for native Windows options, you could probably partition an SD card using the diskpart command line utility.

I should add that I mistakenly thought that Thunderbird was being discussed when I wrote my last message.  my comments about a frame might apply but my comments about using an earlier version may or may not.  I was saying that Thunderbird users got rid of an annoying message by going back.  This may not apply or may not be practical for the program being discussed which is Outlook, as I recall.

This may or may not be the message I've seen complaints about in the last few months, perhaps on other lists.  You may be able to eliminate it by using an older version of the program and setting it not to update. There was a message that people  wanted not to hear and that solved the problem.
 
I doubt there is any reason not to use an older version if e-mail is the only thing you intend to do with the program.  I'm not sure when this became a problem but going back one or two versions may eliminate it. 
 
Also, I don't know if JAWS users might solve the problem by creating a silent frame where this text appears.  That might or might not solve it.

My JAWS sometimes says it, and sometimes does not. There is no rhyme or reason that I have been able to figure out about when it does say it. As I am up and down arrowing, it may try to say it on every message, or it may skip 5 or 6 and then say it again. It is annoying, but I’m not sure what can be done about it.

Re: about amazon echo

Hi, I have not tried to bT it to anything like speakers but I sure it would recognize that it is a speaker and then send the sound out to it! If you have a Echo and a set of bT speakers give it a try! If you don’t then I can try to BT to a headset as I have no BT speakers to try it. Or you could google it and I sure you would get aanswer!

Leave it on it is in the email.  It is because emails today are doing a lot of graphical links and for security outlook does this so you do not open graphics that have virouses attached.  It also allows you to open graphics that you trust in a email if it is accessable by reading the email from the internet.

 

i.e.  on my n f l season ticket email for a couple of years now they send things just as graphical links and jaws reads the graphic as just the series of numbers.  It took me several years to get them to put that link at the top of their emails so I can open the mail in a web format and access the graphical link to do my account and other items sent to season ticket holders.

 

Hope this explains it.

Apple TV OS update

Blaster
 

Hi All,

I read this in Access World's May edition and thought I'd post the
Apple TV OS update info here.

Apple TV OS 9.2

In OS 9.2, Apple has restored the ability to use Bluetooth keyboards
with Apple TV. Before using a keyboard, first pair it with the Apple
TV. Go to Settings > Remotes & Devices to do so. Once the keyboard is
paired, there is a new option called Disconnect Device. If you use
your Bluetooth keyboard for other devices, and do not have a keyboard
that can handle multiple devices, this new option only disconnects the
keyboard. When you go back to the Apple TV with the keyboard, you do
not need to pair it again.

Siri can now be used to dictate text into edit boxes. When dictating
into an edit box for your email or password, you can spell the
information. Speak normally when dictating into a search field. The
first time you use dictation, you will be asked to authorize the
dictation feature for your Apple TV.

You can now create folders like on your iOS device. Locate an app you
want in a folder, then press and hold on the touch screen of the
remote. VoiceOver will first say, "starting moving." VoiceOver will
eventually prompt you to press the "Play" button for options. If you
want to create a new folder, select the New Folder option. Any folders
that have already been created will also be in the options list. Apple
will create a name for the new folder but you can change it with
dictation or with the keyboard. Move an app to a pre-existing folder
by selecting the folder from the list.

Regards,
Blaster
