Re: My blog

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

I actually created a website where I had this idea where blind people could submit blogs and even upload videos of them demonstrating something to youtube; however, the idea was a bust. Nobody was interested! Lmao.
I just created it two weeks ago or so using wordpress.
Then again, I didn't ask that much which is why it didn't go no where. Lol.

that my gmail addresses are showing up,but over on the jaws lists, nothing.

When my gmail account was working, I found that I had to place my email
address in the "bcc" field in order to get a copy. That was true of most
of the people I know with a gmail account.

However, now after having an account for over a year I can no longer
retrieve my pop mail from. I haven't been able to determine why either. I
am using Eudora for a mail client.

The issue is not restricted to one specific provider. I have
experienced this problem with all providers at one point or another.
In general there is really nothing that can be done unless it is
something obvious wrong with a specific mail server. It should be an
infrequent problem, but it is a possibility to be aware of. It is one
of those issues inherent to dealing with any type of technology. There
are many things which can go wrong during the Email sending/receiving
process and not all of them have immediately obvious causes.


Re: quick pop question

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Personal preference and most places will tell you pop isn't supported but
that doesn't mean you can't use it.
The bad thing in my opinion with pop is if you delete all your emails from
the tech talk folder for example, you must remember to delete them from
other locations.
Imap on the other hand, reply on your phone, it will shoed replied on your
client on your comp and even the server. Lol, I answered a few emails once
and someone was like why did you respond twice? I was like oops? I forgot
that I replied to that. This is referring to pop, though.
I have had pop for a few days and getting emails is rather slow compared to
imap but I'm in no rush and I can puff the magic dragon by the time all of
the emails are done downloading.
Just my two cents...

Since the subject line refers
to a pop account, it's easy
enough to create a message
rule that will send messages
with your name or however you
identify yourself in the from
line to the deleted messages
folder. I don't recall if you
can create a message rule that
automatically deletes such
messages without them being
sent to any folder.

If someone is using an IMAP
account, you may or may not be
able to have message rules
that will be acted on in your
e-mail program. Some e-mail
programs allow rules for IMAP
accounts, some don't. But
with a pop account, any e-mail
program that allows message
rules will support their use
in pop accounts.

The provider does not always
alert you if a message did not
get through.
For what ever reason,
occasionally a message is not
received and is lost in
transition. Part of the
problem with not receiving
copies of your messages is
that I have often seen members
become confused if no one
responds to one of their
posts. They are left
wondering if no one has
replied or if the message was
simply not received.

braille apex question again!

So, I’m doing ok, with this apex but I’m not going to lie that I’m a pc person and I’m always thinking in my brain the pc way to do things when using it and hahaha trying to remember the braille commands is also entertaining, but my question is with the apex, is it possible to have two documents open and flip back and forth between them? For example, two word documents and you can do CTRL f six to jump between opened word documents?

 

That would be nice to have one of those for work to take notes during meetings, actually. I have a 15 inch Toshiba laptop and I am severely deaf in my right ear so during meetings, I’m always like whaaa?

another possible shut down for BARD see message for details

Christina Stolze
 

I know that many blind consumers are enjoying the BARD service after some computer maintenance at the Library of Congress crippled the system. The latest news is still reporting that the Senate is trying to avert a government shutdown. If the shutdown occurs, it would happen on October 1. If this does happen, it means that the BARD system will likely be down again, possibly for the duration of the shutdown.

Therefore, BARD consumers should think about preparing for this by downloading extra content if the possibility of a government shutdown looks to be imminent. There is technically no limit as to how many books and magazines can be downloaded and they will not expire or be deleted if BARD should go offline. This would not affect other specialized libraries such as Bookshare and Learning Ally. Therefore, if it looks like we might have to deal with yet another shutdown, consumers should start filling up their computers, thumb drives and their portable devices with tons of books.

Re: Problem Renaming Files

Carlos
 

The problem is that occasionally a file name or total path length is
unintentionally created which is too long. While Windows itself does
support very long file names and paths, Windows Explorer and many
applications do not. When such a file name or path is created, normal
methods for renaming or deleting them may not work. Hence the alternative
solutions. Total path lengths are generally limited to 260 characters and
individual components like file names and folder names without the path are
limited to 255 characters. Although there are Unicode provisions for paths
up to 32767 characters in length, this is generally not supported by most
applications or file managers.

Hi all, If you rename your folders and files with names that make sense while you are unzipping them, you're do much better. You don't have to put the zip files anywhere! You just need to write the path and the file name, e.g. c:\books\The_Light_In_The_ForestHere are some file naming conventions. Avoid user spaces. Yes, I *know* that windows accepts spaces, but not all computer OS's do. Use file names that are relitively short, e.g. get rid of all that dross in NLS BARD file names. Just use the title of the book, and put dashes or underscores between words. Do not use apostrophes or commas or any other kind of weirdnesses, e.g. Eddies_Blue_Winged_Dragon. You know what the book title is, eliminate the apostrophe. Finally, when the unarchive tool askes you for a file name, *you* tell it where your books are to go. Don't let Microsoft dictate to you.

Accessible encryption software

Hi group, I would like some advice on accessible software that can be used to encrypt files and folders. I have several folders stored in my dropbox account that I would like to encrypt but I don't want to move the folders out of db since its important that they be backed up regularly. Can anyone recommend a program that will accomplish this task? I've heard of true crypt but I'm not sure if its still being updated.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hello Rashtron,

I used to run an old FTP server a while back. The only other possibility I can think of that Carlos and others haven't mentioned is the anti virus or anti malware program you are running. Could that have updated in the past few weeks and perhaps is somehow blocking the FTP server? Maybe someone else can comment on this. If this is true, you would have to dig around in these programs to find out if some port or ports are being blocked or perhaps some elements of the FTP server are being blocked.

A few things to consider. Are you behind a router? And if so, have you configured your machine to use a static IP address? Also, are the correct ports forwarded in your router? If the server is configured to use passive mode, then you will need to forward port 21 and another small range of ports, one per the total number of users you want to allow to connect to the server. Passive mode is recommended and the range of ports should generally not be fewer than about 50. For example, 50000 to 50050. If you have the server configured to work in active mode, then you will have to forward ports 20 and 21. Or port 990 instead of 21 in both cases if your server is configured for secure FTP over SSL/TLS. I understand that some of the above information may be obvious if you already know how to set up an FTP server, but there's only so much I can suggest since I don't know in actuality how much of this you're familiar with.
Also, you said it was previously working and I have no way of knowing what changes you may have made to your system a couple of weeks ago.
Did you add a new router or change routers for example? If you need help either configuring a static IP address or forwarding ports with your specific model, you should visit

Subject: [TechTalk] what would cause windows 7 to make my ftp server not receive login information?


Carlos, this is a very strange problem and it just started about two weeks ago. i have an ftp server running on my computer and it was working just fine till about two weeks ago. i was running filezilla ftp server and thought that something got messed up in the configuration so i removed it and reinstalled with same problem happening. i even switched back to slimftp ftp server and it shows to be running but when i try to log on, i get the 530 error incorrect login information and the log doesn't register that i even accessed the server. i have done a port check with canyouseme.org and the service is seen on port 21. i am thinking that something has gotten changed in my windows 7 32bit configuration but cannot figure out what. would have any ideas? thanks.

Re: quick pop question

Ms. E.M. Kirtley <ekirtley@...>
 

When my gmail account was working, I found that I had to place my email address in the "bcc" field in order to get a copy. That was true of most of the people I know with a gmail account.

However, now after having an account for over a year I can no longer retrieve my pop mail from. I haven't been able to determine why either. I am using Eudora for a mail client.

Hello Carlos,
But, that raises another point. How can I tell if someone like a teacher got my email, which is a private email? I say that I sent it, but some then say they have not got it.

The issue is not restricted to one specific provider. I have experienced
this problem with all providers at one point or another. In general there
is really nothing that can be done unless it is something obvious wrong with
a specific mail server. It should be an infrequent problem, but it is a
possibility to be aware of. It is one of those issues inherent to dealing
with any type of technology. There are many things which can go wrong
during the Email sending/receiving process and not all of them have
immediately obvious causes.

Hi.

Tried a few rss readers, either not accessible, got a fatal error, so.

Tried three, not to my liking.

So, what do you use for a rss reader.

Just want to get audio podcasts, import, search, add and then check for updates.

What do you use on windows 10?

Thanks.

 

Hi,

I have updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10; don't like Windows 10 especially the ribbons,but am still using both Sharp Reader and Accessible Podcaster from Web IE for my podcasts.

Re: Problem Renaming Files

No, it does not have to be checked.  I was just pointing out that if it is checked, which ever folder is selected in the other panel will be the default path displayed when you press F6 to open the "move" dialog.  In other words, you can use the other panel to browse for the destination folder before opening the dialog if you don't want to bother having to type it, but in either case you can choose to just type in what ever path you want to use.

I don’t know if that box is checked or not but I’ll see. Should it be? I left everything pretty much at the default settings.

I don't know if this will work, but the 7-Zip File Manager also has it's own built-in "move" option.  Pres F6 to access the "move" dialog while the files are selected, then you can type in a destination.  If you have the
"2 Panels"
item checked in the
"View"
menu, then by default the destination will be the folder selected in the second panel.

Hi Carlos,
 
I was able to delete it as you said, but I could not rename. It didn’t like any name I gave it, meaning that I couldn’t move it where I wished. The only thing I could do was delete the file.

Find the 7-Zip group under "All Programs" in your "Start" menu, run the 7-Zip File Manager, use it to browse for the files you want to delete, and then delete them using the standard Delete or Shift Delete key combinations.

I don’t understand. I unzipped it with 7Zip; is this something different? I press the applications key and no choices for renaming, deleting or anything comes up in Windows. How would I tell this to delete it?

One workaround is to use the 7-Zip File Manager
which will allow you to delete files in particularly long source paths.

This happens when I try to delete as well. I’m using Windows Seven, 64-bit. I’d like to rename this or get it off my hard drive. Any solutions? Please help. I’ve had this happen with other files too. Sometimes I can delete them and sometimes I can’t. Once I was able to rename with F2 like normal, but that doesn’t work anymore. Thanks bunches for any help.

That's just it, the file is on my C drive. I can't copy, move, rename, or
anything. How do you move it or how do you rename it? F2 will not work and
neither does the applications key. Thanks bunches.

Hi Monica. I get this notification frequently and there are a number of
ways you can deal with it. Firstly, did your friend send the files in a
compressed format? If so then place the compressed file in your C drive,
the folder where your name is, the same folder where you will find your desk
top or your music folder (assuming you are using Win7). When you have done
this, extract the files there. Once you have extracted the files check to
see how many folders or sub folders there are and check the length of the
file names. You should be able to rename the files and folders where you
are but if you have a destination folder where you want them to live then
you will most likely have to shorten the file names or folder names or
reduce the number of subfolders.. It is frustrating and I have this problem
frequently, especially with very long audio book titles. I often can
extract them but trying to move them and putting them elsewhere is a problem
until I've reduced the file path. Walter.
