Re: Inquiring about Uninterrupted power supply units

Peter Spitz
 

Robin:

 

This is what I use, got it from Amazon:  APC Battery Backup & Surge Protector (BE350G) - 350VA 6-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

 

It’s only about $40 now and I’ve had mine for about two years.The reviews will give you a lot of info on how to set up this UPS without needing any help.  For instance, the battery comes with aterminal cover that needs to be removed, it’s pretty obvious when you’re feeling around though.  While it won’t hurt to have sighted help, and I admit I have a13 year old son who helps me out frequently – the unit is pretty blind friendly.  When there is a poweroutage, it will beep four times about every two minutes to remind you that it’s on battery backup.  It will also emit a longer beep when the battery is running down.

 

Did you know that it’s usually very easy simply to replace the battery in your older UPS, have you considered that too?  Just search the model on Amazon and look for a replacement battery.

 

Good Luck,

 

Peter

Hi Everyone,

I hope this finds all happy and well. Since the uninterrupted power supply unit that I’ve had for the past 4 years has now given up its life I was curious what units others were using and how blind friendly they were in terms of setup I.E. making sure battery was properly connected before use as well as interaction once set up. I can’t wait to read what the experiences of others are in terms of that which is available today. Thanks in advance for your help.

No, unfortunately this is happening ever since I got the laptop, but as I say, at first, I thought it was NVDA, only, particularly since window eyes made it slightly better. But now that I want to use it more and more, I have to solve it. System restores only go back as far as the 18th, and I got this thing in July. LOL, when I got it, browsing was the last thing I wanted. BUT now?

I assume this is a recent problem? If so, System Restore is probably the
best option. The Reset option means that you would have to reinstall all

Hello,
Sorry for the confusing subject. So, whether that be fireFox, NVDA, window
eyes, JAWS, IE11, Narrator, regardless of which combination, once a
browser loads, all 34 of them struggle. In other words, I seem to be
getting real serious delays, almost at the point, where the laptop is
unusable. If I can guess, NVDA and fireFox seem to be causing the worse
delays, but not together. If I have IE and NVDA, it will struggle more
than firefox and window eyes. But if I have fireFox, that will struggle
more than IE, regardless of which screen reader. To start with, I thought
that this was a screen reader issue, but I'm leading towards the fact,
that it's the laptop. Has anyone seen anything alike? If not, anything I
could try? Please note: firefox was installed by me, IE got reset, they do
no good. Was thinking of resetting the laptop through the windows 10
settings, but not too sure what I would, and what I wouldn't lose. As well
as which option to choose. Thanks so much!

Accessible TV's and more, perhaps?

Mike Thomas
 

Just a thought that has ben going through my head for some time ...

If we could convince Apple to include an IR sending LED into their products, couldn't apps be written to control almost anything that uses an IR based remote control? In my thoughts, this would make so many items accessible that are now not to the blind community, and combine all remotes into one unit for the sighted and blind alike. With voice over, we could control so many things, and it might even spur manufacturers to make all the current touch screen stuff IR compatible with the phones and tablets.

I think you will like this and get a big benefit from this device to use with your IOS device. It is about a SD card or USB drive to hook to your IOS device. The nice thing about it not only will it expand your storage space it will also encrypt and password protect the SD card or USB drive. You can also use the fingerprint to unlock it as well. See podcast below. As well as the site with links to it and the podcast.

Well, how did I get all of this going? Perhaps I should
just clarify 2 things. I have built over 2,125 automatic
transmissions for every thing from family cars to fork lifts
to speed boats. Unfortunately, rebuilding modern
transmissions in a timely manner in the real world today
does actually require eye sight so I retired over 25 years
ago.

So, figuring out how to change out a stupid battery
shouldn't be such a big deal. I will however, admit that I
am envious concerning the computer skills that several on
this list possess. I wish I felt confident enough to
attempt a home built system.

Anyway, My reason for preferring to change out the battery
myself is simple.
In the past, I have needed to send back cassette players up
to 3 times in a roe for repairs because my local library
sent me back to back, defective players.

My DTBP is clean and in great condition except for a bad
battery. I would like to keep it. However, just to avoid
any possible negative consequences , I will make
arrangements for my local library to send me a replacement
unit and then I will return my current machine.

Thanks for everyone's interest. Now, I know how to reset
the player as well as how to upgrade its firmware. And, it
appears as though it isn't worth loosing NLS services if I
got caught servicing their machine.

Hi all,

You guys have to admit that the majority of you are either
computer programmers or electrical engineers or techies of
some kind. You may very well be able to change a battery in
a DTBM, however, they are designed as a proprietary machine
which will satisfy the needs of the greatest amount of
people. Therefore, you shouldn't change the battery, and
you can't unless you have a new battery. Gerald is right
that you may invalidate your agreement with NLS if you
attempt such a feat.

I don't think that NLS believes that you or I are incapable
of changing the battery, rather NLS believes that the
majority of its patrons,
including: children, school kids, adults and children with
intellectual challenges, elders with physical disabilities,
adults with physical disabilities and so on cannot do so.
Therefore, since the player must meet the needs of the
majority, they chose this way. If you want to prove that
you can change a battery, buy a Stream or a Stratus or an
iPhone or whatever. Me, I've lived long enough so that I
don't have to prove myself to anyone. I've already done it,
got the t-shirt too. I'm glad to have the machine.

a violation of NLS rules that can lead to disciplinary

Carlos,

There are 4 things listed in the area you told me to go to. The third and 4th things listed are my C:drive and that's on as is something called OS (C) missing, and above that my external drive that I have connected is listed as off and above that it says recovery off. Does that recovery need to be on for me to do a system restore? I've done system restores on my previous machines running other versions of windows without a problem, so unless system restore is done differently in windows 7 than it was before as I said above I've never been able to do a system restore on this machine.

Thanks.

Both will take you to the same place. To enable System Restore do the following.

1. Press Windows key+R to open the
"Run"
dialog.

2. Type
SystemPropertiesProtection
followed by Enter.

3. When the
"System Properties"
dialog opens, make sure that the
"System Protection"
tab is selected.

4. Tab until you find the list and select your system drive.

5. If it says
"On",
then System Restore is already enabled. If it says
"Off",
tab to the
"Configure"
button and select it.

6. Select the
"Turn on system protection"
radio button.

7. Use the
"Max Usage"
slider to select how much drive space you want to be used for restore points. I would recommend at least 5 to 10 percent, but if you have a large drive then you can set it higher if you prefer.

8. Select the
"OK"
button twice to close the
"System Protection"
and
"System Properties"
dialogs respectively.

Carlos,

There are 4 things listed in the area you told me to go to. The third and 4th things listed are my C:drive and that's on as is something called OS (C) missing, and above that my external drive that I have connected is listed as off and above that it says recovery off. Does that recovery need to be on for me to do a system restore? I've done system restores on my previous machines running other versions of windows without a problem, so unless system restore is done differently in windows 7 than it was before as I said above I've never been able to do a system restore on this machine.

Thanks.

Troy

Both will take you to the same place. To enable System Restore do the following.

1. Press Windows key+R to open the
"Run"
dialog.

2. Type
SystemPropertiesProtection
followed by Enter.

3. When the
"System Properties"
dialog opens, make sure that the
"System Protection"
tab is selected.

4. Tab until you find the list and select your system drive.

5. If it says
"On",
then System Restore is already enabled. If it says
"Off",
tab to the
"Configure"
button and select it.

6. Select the
"Turn on system protection"
radio button.

7. Use the
"Max Usage"
slider to select how much drive space you want to be used for restore points. I would recommend at least 5 to 10 percent, but if you have a large drive then you can set it higher if you prefer.

8. Select the
"OK"
button twice to close the
"System Protection"
and
"System Properties"
dialogs respectively.

Does this work in windows 7, and is it where you can go to set the computer back to a previous time? I've always just typed system restore into my search box but doing it that way I can't remember exactly what it says but it sounds like system restore is disabled, so I've never been able to do a system restore on this laptop in all the time I've had it.

Hi, could someone remind me as to what I write into the run dialog, to get to the restore points, please?

Hi Again Rich,
 
I'm sorry!  I didn't hear your whole message, & didn't hear you say that you allocated space for saving restore points.  So, hopefully allocating space took care of your restore points saving issue.
Take care.

Hi Rich,
 
That means you need to assign allocated space for the system restore to use before it can create a system restore point.  If system restore doesn't have harddrive space allocated assigned, what can it save a restore point to?  For Windows 7, here are steps for assigning storage space:
 
1. Go to the Control Panel / System Link & press enter.
2. Tab to, System Protection Link, & press enter.
3. Tab to, Protection Settings, & tab 1 more time to a list of harddrives on your computer.  Arrow up / down to your operating system drive to make sure it's turned on.
4. Now, tab 1 time to the, Configuration button, & press the spacebar to open.
5. Tab to, Max Useage, & this is where you arrow up / down to select the maximum amount of space you want allocated for saving restore points.  The mor space you choose, the more restore points will be saved.  Warning: You should be aware of your total amount of space on your harddrive, the amount that is used, & the amount that is free space before increasing or decreasing.
6. After changing your setting, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, press enter to save & close.
 
Take care.

Funny thing!  My system restore for the C drive said it was ON, but when
I tabbed over to the hard drive space dedicated  to the restore, it said
zero per cent.  Huh?  What good is it being on if the space dedicated to
restore is zero?  I increased it to ten per cent and hopefully it is
good now.
