Hi Ann,
Thanks ever so much! I went down to navigation, and checked the check box, which said to expand, and it is now showing up. Thanks again.

I haven't said anything so far because I don't think that the current view really has anything to do with what you are describing. The current view should not affect what is displayed on the context menu. I am not sure why you are experiencing this problem and I cannot immediately think of any setting which will change what items are displayed on the context menu.

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.

Re: New Protection Step For Your Social Security Account

Hi all,

Yes, that means you have a google account. You can sign in and set up your google profile and all that.

I was astonished at how easy it was to do it. I now have a gmail address which is probably not going to be used unless I get a Touch or a B2G. But the neatest thing was that instead of using a CAPTCHA, they allowed you to receive a code on your phone. You just type in the code and you're good to go.

A keyboard shortcut. Although when an application or plug-in allows you to

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.

and VI 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-andrs
quoem-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 the above petition, please visit
https://www.change.org/p/john-hanke-niantic-inc-petition-to-make-pok
%C3%A9mon-go-playable-by-blind-and-vi-players-on-android-and-ios
To sign, simply enter your e-mail address and certain other
requested information, inserting a comment if so desired, and
complete the process.
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.

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.

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."

Please do spread the word about this petition, so we can actually get

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

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.

Robin

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.
