Yours sounds like one I'd want, since it has all of that talk feature. Do you have to empty the reservoir?

I have a 74-year-old friend with some sort of vacuum that has a timer. When it is set to come on, it goes all over the apartment. She got it from Sears.
She was asked to give it a name for the warranty, and so she calls it Murphy (Murphy's law). Well, she and her house mate tell me that sometimes, Murphy has a mind of his own and will get stuck somewhere. There will be a display saying something like move me. When she moved last December, she paid a lady to clean her apartment. Murphy started while the lady was working. She went out to shake some rugs or something. Murphy hit the door; it opened. Out he came. She had to grab him, otherwise, we guess that Murphy was going to run away from home. He lives on a charger and goes around on his own for the cleaning.

Hello,

Thanks to you good people on Techtalk, I have extracted more than 2,000 MIDI files.

I'll need to create a database which will give me the folder names and the names of each MIDI file within each one.

Is there a way to copy all the file names without copying the files themselves.

I have to say that the thought of retyping all those names is more than daunting.

As before, I thank you for your thoughts with this one.

Free Credit Reports For The Blind & Credit Report App For The iPhone

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

I know this isn't exactly on topic, but I thought some of you could benefit;
I like having info in a suitable format!

The website is

http://www.creditreporting.com/free-credit-reports-blind.html

For more info, individuals with visual impairments may request their free
annual credit reports in Braille, Large Print or Audio Format by telephone,
toll free, 877-322-8228. After you call and provide the required personal
information and certify that you are blind or visually impaired within the
meaning of the Americans with Disabilities Act, you can then select your
preferred alternative format. Your reports will be mailed via the U.S. Post
Office within 15 days, but please allow an additional week for delivery.

Finally, I like getting all three reports, since there may be slight
differences!

The app is free and gives you your credit and report updated daily.  I

Subject: [TechTalk] How to lower ringer on iPhone



Hi all,

There is something driving me crazy about the iPhone, which I just can't
find a way of changing. I'd like to turn down the volume of the iPhone
ringer without changing the volume of the siri voice. If I turn down the
ringer noise, and if I use Siri, the siri volume will be equal to the ringer
volume. I would like to find a way of turning down the freakin annoying
ringer and leaving the siri volume as it should be. As is, and I'm hoping
I'm simply overlooking a buried setting, apple has connected the ringer
audio with the Siri audio. This sounds like the dumbest thing I've ever
heard of, and I'm hoping I'm wrong. This is incredibly annoying, so I'm
hoping someone has a solution.

Thanks,

JR

No, respect is something you give to all humans whether you deem them

I too agree. It sounds like political correctness gone wild. An elder such
as in tribal elder usually has a connotation of not just someone who is old
but that is wise as well, and let me tell you I've run into some older
persons who were nowhere near wise during my lifetime.
(smiles) When you take a statement such as "respect your elders" I don't
think it's meant to respect the local old drunk lying in the gutter as if he
were a wise man. Respect higher than the respect one affords anyone they
meet on the street should be reserved for those who have earned it. Just
saying.

Have the euphamizers ever once asked those being euphamized how they
feel about it? I haven't ever heard of them doing so. So I conclude
that they are very likely trying to impose euphamisms to make themselves
feel better.
It's about them, not about the group being eupahmized. Maybe if they
asked those being euphamized what they thought, they would stop trying
to impose euphamisms.

the word old has those negative connotations in the definition of the
euphamizers. Do those who are actually old, or elderly, or senior
citizens or whatever euphamism you want to use agree? Shouldn't the
very first thing the euphamizers should do be to talk with the group
to know what that group thinks.

I write this message specifically for Ann. I really did not mean to
insult or offend anyone by the usage of the term 'old'. In fact, I
realise, I should have been very mindful of it to begin with.

Thank you for pointing it out.

I would always keep this one in mind.

Sincerest apologies.

Thank you,

bharat

Hi all,

I thank you all for your suggestions in getting around to this ... I
think from the discussion, a victor Stratus, please correct me if I
am wrong, may be the best option.

from the conversation I have had with my friend, it seems she's
looking out for a digital recorder.

She has done her research but decided to ask me assuming I may have a
better idea of things in this regard.

The person is in India. unless she is an American citizen, she
can't get a player. And even if she got one somehow, she couldn't
join the NLS program and have access to the material offered. I
don't know what is offered in India. Whatever may be offered, the
person can probably join book Share.
She won't have access to all the books in the collection but she
will have access to many.

The easiest device for your friend's grandmother to use and operate
would be

a Digital Talking Book player from the NLS. It was designed for eas
of use,

especially for seniors with dexterity problems. Once your friend
register

her granmother with the NLS, she can download books from the BARD
site that

would be of interest to her. She can also download music for her
grandmother in MP3 format that can be played on the DTB player.
Best of all, the DTB player, unlike third-party players is free of
charge.

hi all,

need your help here. one of my friends ahas a queery for any
audiobooks player for her old grand-mother. Here is what she says,
Please help!

"My grandmother who lives in Jaipur has lost almost all her eye
sight over the last few years (macular degeneration). We are trying
to set up something for her so that she can listed to audio books
and music, to keep boredom at bay. While it is possible to find
audio content quite easily, what device should we get for her? It
has to be something she can operate by herself to play these books
etc. She is not too technologically savvy."

While the Grand-mother is in India, the friend who has sought this
information is in the U.S. meaning she may have access to devices
that may not be available elsewhere. Please help.

thank you,

bharat.

Subject: [TechTalk] How to lower ringer on iPhone



Hi all,

There is something driving me crazy about the iPhone, which I just can't
find a way of changing. I'd like to turn down the volume of the iPhone
ringer without changing the volume of the siri voice. If I turn down the
ringer noise, and if I use Siri, the siri volume will be equal to the ringer
volume. I would like to find a way of turning down the freakin annoying
ringer and leaving the siri volume as it should be. As is, and I'm hoping
I'm simply overlooking a buried setting, apple has connected the ringer
audio with the Siri audio. This sounds like the dumbest thing I've ever
heard of, and I'm hoping I'm wrong. This is incredibly annoying, so I'm
hoping someone has a solution.

Thanks,

JR

Hi Junior, going to settings, and adjust the ringer to what we would like it to be adjusted with the picker and settings. Then once you've done this while you're in there, turn off the chains with buttons. Then hit the home button and activate Siri. Walt Siri is activated, adjusted by an once again with the up-and-down buttons that are on the side of your phone. Then once you've done this, call yourself and make sure that it is still set to your liking. I hope this helps you.i

What about going to Settings and change your ring to a
quieter ring?

Bye for now,
