There are incompetent and poor techs all over.  You have to talk with the person who will work on your machine and it helps if you get good recommendations.  You can cite  bad experiences and I can cite good ones.  I had a tech work on one of my machines a number of years ago who had no pre or misconceptions about assistive software.  I had another tech help me years ago by setting up one of my machines to be dual boot.  He also had no pre or misconceptsions about adaptive software.  An example here or there doesn't indicate any necessary pattern or outcome.  I wouldn't let someone work on a machine unless I had talked with the person enough to decide if I had confidence in him or her.  But I wouldn't assume that just because a tech knows what adaptive tech is that they are generally competent either.  there is no connection and, while I'm sure there are many good techs, there are many questionable ones as well.

I’ve had various people who are called techs who work in regular computer places look at anything they don’t recognize, including screenreading software, and call it malware.  I also was on the line with somebody from Dell, and because I am on a lot of email lists, when a bunch of email came in, the guy said I was getting a mailbox full of spam.  I told him it was not spam, that I was on a lot of email lists, and he didn’t seem to know what I was talking about.  He called blindtech spam.  Pam.

Changing resolution may impair the reading of the screen in certain programs but it won't stop the screen-reader from working.  I would never limit myself to the small number of techs who know a little about adaptive equipment.  I don't know how competent they are, I don't know how their work compares in general with competent techs who don't have such knowledge.  A good reputable shop won't do the kind of damage you are describing if you speak with whomever is going to do the work.  the user has a certain amount of responsibility to inform techs not to alter adaptive equipment and not to upgrade any programs because doing so might not allow the programs to work with screen-readers.  Also, techs should not be instructed to add any programs or utilities without the express permission of the owner.  Adding certain antimalware programs, for example, might place inaccessible programs on the machine.  the blind owner should give clear instructions as to how to unload adaptive software if it runs automatically at boot up. 
 
I haven't done this but it might be a good idea to have certain things in writing such as that if a tech upgrades a program or places a program on a computer without the owner's permission, then the expense of undoing such changes will be borne by the shop or the tech or whomever is being hired and no charge for time or labor for the initial installation of such programs or upgrades will be assessed.

They do have to know what the screenreader is, though; and that it’s not junk to be disposed of, or a virus.  And they have to not mess with display settings and all, or anything that would make the screenreader not work right.  That’s why I say it’s better to have somebody who at least knows a little about them.  Pam.

Well the light house for the blind here a sub division of the blind services of Florida will give you independent living help from cooking to teaching braille to learning to use a PC with the screen reader of your choice  or they will teach you to use Mac. You first have to get approved thru the blind Services and then they send you to the light house of the blind. Now for trouble shooting computers and working on them and stuff . I don’t know if they have someone there doing that or they have a place of business that they contract with or send you to.  They not usually in the business of fixing computers and phones and equipment . they usually contract with someone or have someone they send you too. Since I usually do my own Pc trouble shooting I never had a need for that kind of service.  If it was hardware related on my computer and I did not feel comfortable doing it myself I just backed up my data and then let them go at it.  I usually uninstall any A T products I have on it or disable them. And when I get it back I put them on it.

As usually you don’t need to know anything about  a screen reader to work on a PC.

Gene,

Referring to the email I sent out, no this is not related to my work, but it is related to living independently.  The department of rehab where I live does not only serve people who are a student or who are employed.  Blind people do live independently, and you should know this yourself.  I can schedule an appointment with a tech volunteer to meet at their office, and learn about a computer or an iPhone.  This service is free.  If I need more extensive training, the department of rehab will open my case as they would do for anyone because this is the service they provide.  It is called independent living skills.  Where the computer comes in is: people do need a computer to shop online, pay bills online, manage accounts online and other business accounts online, communicate through email, fill out forms online, check personal status online, refill meds online, look up important and personal info online, schedule appointments online, schedule deliveries online, read mail and etc.  It is the same as rehab providing mobility lessons, and not only if the person is a student or employed. 

This is very understandable!

Hi Carolyn,
I just realized I  think  I must be fortunate because where I live, I can call blind techy volunteers for an appointment who will help me to learn what I might want to learn on the computer or iPhone.  If I need more tech help, I can call the department of rehab, and they will open a case for me to go to get more extensive computer training.

That’s not what happens in the real world.  When you are a client, the state is paying the agency to train you and do all they are supposedly supposed to.  When you are no longer a client, there is no money coming there way concerning you.  So, they couldn’t care less!  Pam.

I strongly disagree.  A blindness rehab agency should go out of its way to help a blind computer user who requests technical assistance, even if he is not a client.  I wouldn’t expect their technology specialist to visit my home or spend a lot of time over the phone trying to resolve my problem.  But it is not unreasonable for them to at least recommend a reputable local service technician who is familiar with screen reader software and other issues relevant to blind computer users. After all, if you can’t get help from a blindness agency, where else can you turn?

In my experience, contacting a blindness rehab agency and asking one of their technology trainers for help is usually fruitless unless you have an open case with them.  A few years ago when my old XP computer died I tried contacting the technology trainer at the rehab center who had originally set it up for me in my apartment a few years earlier when I was still working with them, but he ignored my pleas for help.  I even contacted their director of community services and was basically told to take a hike because they could not offer any assistance or even recommend a knowledgeable service technician unless I had an open case.  Thank goodness my techie friend was able to bail me out.

Hello andrew, it is good to know that your computers up and working again. You're us in for future support I'm trying to get things fixed eventually, I would recommend looking at Best Buy or Staples or a local computer shop in your area. If it is blindness related, I would see is there any blindness trainers in your area, dad have interest in maybe helping fix your problems. Any of the services that I've mentioned above Will cost but very well worth it in the end. If you don't know how to find a good blemish related trainer in your area, I would looking contacting your local dollars office.. offers anything through it's office.

Re: Troubles installing JAWS18

Gene
 

I'm not sure which version of JAWS was being used when this problem, or one that seems similar, as I recall, occurred.  I doubt that fooling around will accomplish anything but waste time.  Every installation of JAWS, though shared files are used, is a separate installation and I doubt that experimentation will solve the problem unless you just happen to hit on the right thing to do and whatever the solution is may lie outside of any generally used correction methods.

Also, you say JAWS 17 works fine, but is this on the 8.1 machine or are you

Has the Win 8.1 machine ever had JAWS fully installed on it previoussly?

no change. And again, this worked on windows 10 just fine, so I'm slightly
confused as to why not now. I've not tried 17, to be fair. Although I don't
suppose it would make a difference.
Actually, http://webaim.org/discussion/mail_threadthread=5165
Except that redownloading it here did no difference.
And since it doesn't even load the speaking installer, it's not an
authorisation issue. Tried removing all remains of freedom scientific, as
well as the registry, but still no luck.

Re: Troubles installing JAWS18

John Gregory <stratplayer@...>
 

Hi Rajmund,

Not absolutely sure why you are having the problem you are having, but if
you could answer the following perhaps it may be possible to determine any
help:

You say you are using 8.1, but that JAWS 18 worked OK in 10?

did you downgrade from 10 to 8.1?

If so, when did you downgrade?

John.

Hello,
So, as we all know, having a secondary screen reader, is always useful to
have. That's exactly what am trying here. Windows 8.1, 64 bit, and have a 64
bit of JAWS. Every time I try installing, I get The JAWS setup package can
not 'install the required component, runtime JAWS. Running it as admin made
no change. And again, this worked on windows 10 just fine, so I'm slightly
confused as to why not now. I've not tried 17, to be fair. Although I don't

It partially depends on the type of audio editing.  General recording or even multi-track recording does not usually require a very powerful system.  However, audio recording which involves real-time virtual synthesizers and effects can be quite resource intensive and is definitely one of those times when the more powerful your system the better.

That appears to be an overgeneralization.  It may depend on the program being used.  A program like MP3 Direct Cut doesn't need a lot of power or RAM.  My impression is that Audacity or Goldwave doesn't either.  I've read a number of articles about determining what computer to get and I have never seen audio editing listed as an intensive activity, though, as I said, that may depend on the program being used.

Audio editing is also something that needs a nice amount of ram and a
good processor. My lap top sucks for editing it's only a duel core i5
6 gb of ram. So yes I would rather have something with a bit more than
I need than something with less than what I need.

Bluetooth speakers

Matt
 

Well my laptop did not get here yesterday but looks like it might get here today.

So I am looking for some Bluetooth speakers for it. I would like a pair that would work together . Not too big but not real small either.  Any suggestions ?

 

 

Thanks,

Matt.from.florida@...

PORTABLE WIRELESS DOCUMENT SCANNERS

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Hi All:

 

I wonder if anyone on list is using a portable wireless document scanner of any kind?  I'm in the market for one!

 

I've read up on the likes of Epson DS40, Brother DS920DW, Fujitsu ScanSnap S13I, iX100 and a few others.  But I am drawing a blank as to which one should be given more thought.  So, I thought I'd ask for some recommendations!

 

Ok, why do I need a portable wireless document scanner?  My front desk at the store is filled with lots of mails!  It'll be too much hassle to stash them all into my bag and bring them home believing that I'll be able to get help sorting through them.  I need to be able to SCAN and read the envelopes with a view to determining which mails require urgent attention and which ones are trash.  This is necessary to keep my front desk reasonably clean, tidy and organised. 

 

I do have the KNFB Reader on my shiny Android phone; however, I've had NO LUCK in getting a good scan.  I am still practicing as best I can but I think my spatial orientation is just out of whack for the time being.  With a portable wireless document scanner, I should be able to SLIDE THE ENVELOPE through and let the scanner do its thing.  I want a portable wireless document scanner because I want to be able to schlepp it around in my bag; the ones I've read about do come with Abbyy FineReader which includes OCR.  They also will let me scan directly to my shiny Android phone. 

 

Anyway, I'll sit back now and look forward to reading your thoughts!  Thanks for all help.

 

Sincerely,

Olusegun

Denver, Colorado
