Re: Software for Adjusting hearing aids

Carolyn Arnold
 

That is something I would like to know. I stuff bits of cut
Q-tip in the tips of mine to reduce the sound, have to put
more in right than in left.

Also, I understand that if we can get a copy of our
audiology report, when ordering from hear-better.com,
they'll send them to you adjusted.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Subject: [TechTalk] Software for Adjusting hearing aids

Today I got some new hearing aids. Phonak something or
other's, I missed the model.
The technician hung some kind of wireless receiver around my
neck and was able to adjust the hearing aids using that
thing somehow.
My question is. Can we get the software and that piece of
equipment so we can adjust them ourselves? Or are we pretty
much at the mercy of the audiologists and technicians. Do
you need a special license to get the software?

Interesting, when I tried to install it using ninite.com it said to use classic start as classic shell was deprecated.

Obviously somebody is working on such a project. I did just do a clean

If somebody is going to build something like what Brian Smart did some years

There is no such animal. There is, however, something you can use to install
Windows, either 7 or 10, accessibly, and it's from our major-geek list man,
Carlos. Go to http://www.opopanax.net/download and get a copy of the Windows
pre-installation environment appropriate for the operating system you wish
to install--Windows 7 or 10, 32- or 64-bit--burn it to a DVD (it won't fit
on a standard CD) or USB, boot it, NVDA starts, then you can insert any
commercial Windows installation medium and carry on. After the
post-installation reboot, you can turn Narrator on to complete the
installation. In Windows 10, if you do this, you'll discover the system
reboots a few times before settling down to let you complete the setup.
There's a way to make Narrator start on subsequent reboots, I did see the
checkbox for it, but I didn't bother remembering its exact wording or
location in the Narrator settings dialog, but it's definitely there.

Sophos focuses on enterprise security more than anything. So, they focus on enterprise solutions. The home version is a stripped down version of the enterprise version, without all of the security suite type tools, and without the technical hoops... Also, the number of allowed computers is different. If you want to learn more, check out their site.

Re: Jaws scripts for Duxbury needed

Donald L. Roberts
 

Steve, what you say is true.  However, my version, specifically 10.4 apparently has a different layout such that the current incarnation of the Jaws scripts does not work correctly.  Specifically, when reading a .dxb file, I hear jibberish rather than the translated braille.


But I appreciate your willingness to respond.

But an Amazon tablet does not come with hand-holding customer support,
like Laz provides, and it does not have discrete buttons like an MP3
player, which could be problematic for some blind consumers.

Aw come on, an Amazon tablet is cheaper than that, does more, and has
speech already in it. If the person doesn't want it, they can turn it
off.

Subject: [TechTalk] MP3 Players

Hi All,

I am trying to help a student purchase an affordable MP3 player. All
of the MP3 players with speech output are too expensive for his
limited income. We are looking for a MP3 player without speech output
that is still accessible to the blind. Does anyone know of one?

Thanks

Allen

Just so. I have two--the Zip and the Plus.

read books while offering a wide variety of audio customization.

Re: Jaws scripts for Duxbury needed

Steve Matzura
 

Donald, JAWS scripts are packaged with the DBT installer. This
according to someone who works for Duxbury.

I posted the below message yesterday on Blindtech but received
absolutely no response; so I thought I would try here.


The subject line says it. I am attempting to locate a Jaws script which
will work for older versions of Duxbury such as 10.4. I have checked
the Duxbury systems web site and found no scripts. Also, my old version
is no longer supported, although it runs on Windows 10. It is far too
costly to update for the purposes for which I use braille translation.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

This is good to know.

I can't find the link they reference for finding which versions are
affected, though.

Re: format 256gb or 128gb USB drive as fat32

Mike Thomas
 

Hi, if you do a google search for FAT 32 formatting of larger drives, you'll find some little utilities that allow you to do this.  In Windows 7 I was recently offered XFAT format, which I suppose is about the same thing when I needed to FAT format a 64GB thumb drive.

Hi all,

I am running windows 10 at home, and I am finding problems trying to format a USB of 128gb or 256gb, or whatever usb drive above 32gb with a partition fat32. I need fat 32 in this usb drives to be able to use them in another electronic devices as my theater system or even my phone.

Anybody knows about an accessible app that is able to do this?

Thanks in advance,
