NEWSWIRE: TEK TALK FEATURES JOSEPH LEE, WINDOWS 10 ANNIVERSARY

 

THE PAT PRICE ROOM: 8 PM EDT, MONDAY AUGUST 1, 2016       

 

Presentation: Meet Windows 10 Anniversary Update

·         Presenter: Joseph Lee

 

Description:

In mid-2015, technology writer Mary Jo Foley caused a stir when she announced Microsoft was thinking about the successor to Threshold, or initial version of Windows 10. This successor, codenamed Redstone, or as known by the name Windows 10 Anniversary Update or Version 1607, brings exciting features, such as enhanced Cortana, revamped Action Center, Windows Subsystem for Linux, reorganized Start menu, Settings and other apps, and new possibilities through Edge extensions and more. To screen reader users, the most notable change is vastly improved Narrator with features such as scan mode, developer mode, improved responsiveness and so forth.

Join Joseph Lee, a Windows Insider and a contributor to NVDA screen reader project, as he gives you a backstage tour of what’s new, changed, fixed and removed in Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Follow him along as he demonstrates running Bash on Windows, navigating the newly redesigned Start menu, demonstrates what’s new in Narrator and his impressions of using third-party screen readers with the latest Windows 10 upgrade. Along the way he will talk about his experience of running Windows 10 and being a Windows Insider, and what screen reader developers must do to make Windows 10 support a great one for users.

Re: Petition to make Pokémon Go playable by blind and VI players on Android and iOS

Hi Carlos,
Ah, thanks for the clarification. There are downsides to the concept
this game is introducing to the world, which I acknowledge, and a lot
of fascination and immersion and absorbment too.
Thanks.

Hi Carlos,
I am not exactly sure what your sigh may indicate, but I am guessing
that you doubt how accessible an augmented reality game like this
could be made, which I fully understand.
However, all my hope too currently is based on this AFB post that
describes how this game could possess accessibility support, which may
be slightly superficial in nature, but still holds much promise and
practicality to at least start a dialogue among Niantic staff about
possible consideration of the visually impaired.

players on Android and iOS


Dear all,
For all those who not only wish Pokemon go to be made accessible but
also those who wish this game to perhaps serve as a prime example for
future mainstream video games, please sign this petition requesting
for its accessibility, with petition contents and signing link all
below:
"Pokémon Go is a craze which is currently taking the world by storm,
recently passing 50 million downloads on the App store and making
millions of people leave their homes in search of rare Pokémon,
making them more social in the process. However, there are certain
groups of people who are excluded from this phenomenon.
Because of the way some of the game mechanics work and the way it was
programmed, the built-in software to read the screens of the iOS and
Android operating systems to aid people with disabilities is not able
to recognize the text being displayed in the game. There are also some
mechanics, such as catching the Pokémon which require you to know
where the creature is visually on the screen which would need
additional audio queues. The American Foundation Of The Blind has
written a detailed blog post explaining what changes need to be done
to make the game playable at this link:
http://www.afb.org/blog/afb-blog/pokemon-go-letandrsquos-catch-andrsquoem-all/12

With these few enhancements Pokemon Go could gain a whole new base
of players. To this date, not a single Pokemon game has been fully
playable without asking someone for help or using text guides.
Finally, both Sony and Microsoft started making their consoles speak
displayed text and Nintendo is the only company that has not
implemented any accessibility features and now is the time for this to
change. Companies like Apple and Google (and Niantic being a former
Google company should know this), are making it increasingly easier
for developers to make assistive technologies like screen readers and
magnifiers work well with their applications and games.
We think that Niantic and Nintendo should set an example and do
something that no AAA developer has tried before and make Pokemon go
Playable by all! There’s no reason why visually impaired people
shouldn’t be able to be a part of this massive community and make
friends with other gamers.
This petition will be delivered to:
John Hanke Niantic Inc."

To sign, simply enter your e-mail address and certain other requested
information, inserting a comment if so desired, and complete the

Please do spread the word about this petition, so we can actually get
this well-drafted and practically explaining request heard to Niantic
and be able to play this extremely popular game.
Thanks.

Hi Bhavesh Sir,
Pokemon Go is not banned in most of the countries and markets where it
has been released, but is simply growing in popularity.
Very few countries such as Egypt have clamped a ban, and a few like
Indonesia have restricted its access to public officials in its
country. However, for the most part it continues to flourish and
thrive in an increasing player base.
In India too, despite no official release, people are grabbing APKs
and playing relentlessly in massive numbers.
Thanks.

Hello,
So, here's the story. A few hours ago, when I pressed the applications key,
I got things like 7zip menu, another similar app, which, I can't spell, cut,
copy, send to, so on. After playing with control folders from the run
dialog, and no, no clues what I did, I now get things like group sub menu,
sort sub menu, and so on. After trying to put it back how it was for the
last 40 minutes, I'm afraid I'm lost. Anyone knows what setting? I know its
either in general or view tab, not search. LOL, not much, I know. Thanks for
all help.

Hi,
As a blind user I can heartily recommend the

Canon imageCLASS LBP6230dw Wireless Laser Printer

available at many retailers such as

www.amazon.com <http://www.amazon.com>

for a reasonable price. I and others I know have set up this printer which can connect wirelessly or via USB independently and it works well. Cartridge of which there is only one can be easily inserted and removed with no issues. while the power button doesn’t change position it is easy enough to tell when it’s powered on or off. Note: as I’ve experienced a few power outage in recent weeks I now know that this unit defaults to a state of being off after such. So if you’re in the habit of keeping it turned on should power go out do remember to turn it back on so as not to be confronted with the uh oh why is my printer job stuck.

Since I’m under windows 10 I had to download its software from its maker’s site for installation but it was easy enough to do so and walk through using screen reading software.

paper rests in a tray on the bottom of the front and just above that is a door that opens and eases down to reveal the envelope entry slot.

I do hope that helps.

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.

Hello,

I got things like 7zip menu, another similar app, which, I can't spell, cut,

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,

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Printing Envelopes


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.

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

New step to protect your privacy using my Social Security
 
my Social Security
 
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.
If you are unable or choose not to use my Social Security, there are other ways you can contact us.  To learn more, please review the Frequently Asked Questions found here:
