Google Voice Phone Service Set-up Steps

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 


Hi All,
 
The 2 different sets of steps below will get you started in the right direction:

From: Mike B.
You'll need to have a Google account / email address for the steps below to work.  You can sign in 1st, or later.
 
1. Go to the Google Homepage.
 
2. Arrow down to Google apps, & press enter to open this list of apps.
 
3. Now press, control + F, to start the Jaws find dialogue.  Type in  *voice *, without the spaces or stars, & press enter.
 
4. You will be taken here:
1x/voice_32dp 
Arrow down 1 time to, Voice, & press enter.  This will take you to the Google Voice set-up page.
I did not complete the Voice set-up process, so I can't go any further.
 
You might be able to bypass the steps above by clicking on the link below:

Take care.

I'm popping this out to its own topic.  It's been a few weeks since I last snagged one of these, so I can only give a limited degree of detail.

Of course, you have to have a Google account with which the number can be associated, so if you don't then grab yourself a Gmail address/Google Account first.

These are free, and you can call local and long distance in the United States and Canada without charge.

Start at http://voice.google.com

It does not involve captchas, but you do have to have another phone or cell phone available so that they can call or text with a 3-digit (it might be 4) code you have to enter during the setup process that essentially proves a human being is trying to snag one.

You may or may not be able to get a number in your own city or area code.  In any case there are plenty of options left, but you may have to take a number not related to your actual physical location in any way.  I set my cousin up with one when she was staying with her sister and had no cell service, but had WiFi.  I had to pick an area code on the east coast to get the phone number I wanted (for memory's sake).  If you make your request based on a digit sequence you'd like in the number you pretty much always get a list of potential picks that may be anywhere in the USA if you were thinking physical location of an area code.

There's not much more I can offer at the moment.  I've never tried to go through the setup process with anyone with a screen reader and I don't do this often enough to have remembered each and every step.

Re: Printing Envelopes

Making my own template works fine for me.

It is easy.

Just make the document Landscape, clear the tabs, type in your return address if you want to. I hit Enter about six times before saving, so that by going to End, I'm going to be in the right place, but I always check my position to make sure. So far, it has not failed.

Bye for now,

I just downloaded Envelope Printer Lite and discovered two major problems. First, when you type a delivery address into the first edit field, JAWS announces “*” each time a character is typed, as if a password is being entered, which makes it difficult and confusing to enter the address correctly. You would have to type the entire address and then go back and proofread it for mistakes, which is a real nuisance. There does not seem to be any way to change this behavior so that JAWS announces each character and word normally as they are being typed. Secondly, the delivery address is limited to four lines, which is a problem if the adressee is a business address which can often contain five or even six lines. Looks like I’ll pass on this one.

The only accessible standalone application I have found for printing envelopes so far is one called Envelope Printer Lite.
http://www.snapfiles.com/downloads/envelopeprinter/dlenvelopeprinter.html
When the program first opens, it always places focus in the edit field for typing the delivery address. If you tab once, focus will be placed in the return address field. It will remember the return address between sessions after one is typed. The labels for these two fields are not spoken, but since the program always opens with focus in the delivery address field and the tab key cycles between the delivery and return address fields, this seems like a minor inconvenience. The program has a standard menu bar which is also accessible. Note that I have no prior experience with this program, I just found it by performing a quick search.

Printer Recommendations

Okay,so I turned on my Samsung ML2010 monochrome laser printer, and it powered up normally.  But I adjusted the print cartridge and turned it off and on a couple of times, and now it’s totally dead.  I get the connect and disconnect sounds when I turn it on and off, respectively, but there is absolutely no fan noise or any other sign that it is working, so I must have done something to it.  And of course, it doesn’t print.  So now I’m in the market for a new monochrome laser printer.  Can anyone recommend a monochrome laser printer that is usable without sighted help?  I’m not interested in an all-in-one printer, just a basic laser printer for occasional printing jobs that preferably has a toggle power switch and does not have an LCD screen with menus that would be totally inaccessible and has a cartridge that is easy to replace by touch.  Please provide specific brands and model numbers.  Thanks.

Hi Victor,
 
From what I understand a Google Voice number can be used in place of a cell phone number.  Does anyone have steps for setting up a Google Voice number?  Also, I have a Gmail email address, so does that mean I have a Google account?  Apparently you need a Google account in order to set up a Google Voice number.  I've done some searches on how to set up a Google Voice number, but I'm not getting any steps on how to do so, or I'm just a dipshit, & I'm not clicking on the correct links!  The former is probably closer to the truth!  LOL  LOL

Starting in August 2016, Social Security is adding a new step to protect your privacy as a my Social Security user.  This new requirement is the result of an executive order for federal agencies to provide more secure authentication for their online services. Any agency that provides online access to a customer’s personal information must use multifactor authentication.
When you sign in at ssa.gov/myaccount with your username and password, we will ask you to add your text-enabled cell phone number.  The purpose of providing your cell phone number is that, each time you log in to your account with your username and password, we will send you a one-time security code you must also enter to log in successfully to your account.
Each time you sign into your account, you will complete two steps:
Step 1:  Enter your username and password.
Step 2:  Enter the security code we text to your cell phone (cell phone provider's text message and data rates may apply).
The process of using a one-time security code in addition to a username and password is one form of “multifactor authentication,” which means we are using more than one method to make sure you are the actual owner of your account.
If you do not have a text-enabled cell phone or you do not wish to provide your cell phone number, you will not be able to access your my Social Security account.

Have you actually printed an envelope with Envelope Printer Lite?  If so, how did you verify that the delivery address was properly centered on the envelope and the return address was printed on the top left corner?  Apparently, JAWS masks the text with asterisks only when it is entered for the first time.  Once the text has been typed, it can be read normally with the arrow keys.

Actually it seems that if you set the font size to 12, it will allow up to six lines, but that requires use of the JAWS cursor.

LOL really?  As for the first issue, it doesn't do that for me.  As for the second, that may be related to the envelope size/type which can be selected from the

"Envelope Size"

menu.  Ah well, I guess it's back to the drawing board.

I just downloaded Envelope Printer Lite and discovered two major problems. First, when you type a delivery address into the first edit field, JAWS announces “*” each time a character is typed, as if a password is being entered, which makes it difficult and confusing to enter the address correctly.  You would have to type the entire address and then go back and proofread it for mistakes, which is a real nuisance.  There does not seem to be any way to change this behavior so that JAWS announces each character and word normally as they are being typed. Secondly, the delivery address is limited to four lines, which is a problem if the adressee is a business address which can often contain five or even six lines.  Looks like I’ll pass on  this one.

The only accessible standalone application I have found for printing envelopes so far is one called Envelope Printer Lite.

When the program first opens, it always places focus in the edit field for typing the delivery address.  If you tab once, focus will be placed in the return address field.  It will remember the return address between sessions after one is typed.  The labels for these two fields are not spoken, but since the program always opens with focus in the delivery address field and the tab key cycles between the delivery and return address fields, this seems like a minor inconvenience.  The program has a standard menu bar which is also accessible.  Note that I have no prior experience with this program, I just found it by performing a quick search.

Hi Gerald,  I've looked and looked for a similar program.  I had a copy of Office 97, and it has a envelope printer in there that works well.  I don't know if you can find a copy on eBay or another source or not, but it does the job one envelope at a time.

Good morning, gang.  Can anyone suggest an easy-to-use free program for printing envelopes that is accessible with JAWS?  Thanks.

No.  As I stated initially when I posted the information, I have no prior experience with the program.

Have you actually printed an envelope with Envelope Printer Lite?  If so, how did you verify that the delivery address was properly centered on the envelope and the return address was printed on the top left corner?  Apparently, JAWS masks the text with asterisks only when it is entered for the first time.  Once the text has been typed, it can be read normally with the arrow keys.

I don't believe JAWS has such a feature.  I'm also not sure why others are experiencing this problem with the program.  I can read the text in the fields and it is not being masked by asterisks.

Question About iStick and Appandora,

Lisa Belville
 

Hi, Walter.

Coming from another person who despises iTunes with a passion. . . .Where does one get this Appandora, program?

Also, I'm looking on Amazon for the iStick and can't find any results. I'm either looking in the wrong departments-- Cell phones, computers, and electronics, or Amazon doesn't cell it in the U.S.

TIA for the info.

Lisa

Never make the same mistake twice. There are so many new ones, try a different one each day.
