Re: Software for computer internal temperature?

I had vision when I used the software before. And used a mouse and screen magnification. It had a very small amount of accessibility but not a lot. It also did not work well with SSD drives. It was a total diagnostic tool. I haven’t used it in a while and I can’t remember the name of it.

Have you tried the same software?  Quite often users assume that something which ran on an earlier version of Windows won't run on a newer version.  You may have already done so and found that it didn't work on Windows 10, but you didn't specify.

Hi,

I had a decent application for Windows 7. However, now that I have the Creator’s update and Windows 10 Home 64 Bit on several laptops and desktop computers, can anyone suggest a good application for tracking internal temperature of my PC computers?

Thanks in advance.

hi,
the edit feature, if it shows up on the rotor, may fit this instance better, as the copy last sentence may copy unnecessary headers.

Re: wifi range extenders

Hi,
I can’t speak to the unit asked about but I have one from Amped Wireless. Its set up is much like that which is described by George. And I’m happy to say that the Amped customer service people couldn’t have been more informative and helpful to me even before I purchased one in terms of answering questions about the accessibility of its user interface and layout of the unit itself.

I bought a Belkin dual band wi-fi range extender last week.  I am very happy with its performance especially on the 5ghz band.
 
Mine has its 110 volt plug built into the back panel.  At first, I plugged the unit directly into a wall outlet.  I got somewhat better performance but not what I expected.  I then plugged it into an extension cord and put it on my tv credenza with the antennae pointing toward the ceiling.  Moving it away from the wall like that really improved its performance. 
 
I now have solid 5-bars signals on the 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz bands everywhere in my house and yard.
 
I don’t know about the d-link device but my Belkin was easy to set up.  I powered it up and opened the connect to a network app in the windows 7 control panel.  I had a new network in the list of available networks called belkin.setup.
I connected to that network, opened a web browser and typed in a URL that was in the setup instructions that came with the device.
 
A list of available networks appeared.  I chose my router’s 2.4 ghz network, entered its WPA/2 security key and clicked next.
I then chose my router’s 5 ghz connection, entered its security key, clicked a link labeled create extended networks and closed the web page.
 
When I opened the connect to a network app, there were two new connections available.  They began with the connection names of the ones for my router with the suffix _ext.  Those were the ones for the range extender.  When I connected to either of those new networks, I got great signals everywhere.
 
Hope this helps,

Does she know that since she evidently doesn't look after her computer not being compromised, that she should never do anything where she discloses any personal information including banking but also not anything where she gives such information as her birthday?  If you can't set up effective protection on her machine, then she should know not to do anything personal on it, if she isn't willing to pay someone to set up proper protection.

Hi All,

I currently use ZoomText 10 and JAWS 17. I have downloaded a trial copy of
ZoomText 11, and am having a strange issue.

For an email program I need to use, using IE 11, FireFox or Chrome is very
inefficient with JAWS, so for getting my work email I use IE 8. I use
Chrome and/or Firefox to access most other websites.

When running ZoomText 11 with the email program on IE 8, every time I open
an email, send an email, close an email, etc., I get the following message:

Security Warning dialog
Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?
This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure
HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.

I can get by this by just pressing "Yes", but I would like to turn this
message off. I do not get this message when I switch back to using ZoomText
10 with IE8.

Can anyone tell me where I can turn this off?

Thanks.


Re: ZoomText 11 Issue

Hi Carlos,

Thanks so much for your help. This did fix the issue.

I have no idea why this only happened when running ZoomText 11 with IE8. I did discover that it happened with pretty much any website I tried under IE 8, not just the web email site.

And I have no idea why when I would switch back to running Zoomtext 10, I did not keep getting this popup in IE 8.

But thanks, it's all good now.

Pam

Re: ZoomText 11 Issue

I don't know what accounts for not seeing the warning with ZoomText 10.  Since that is an Internet Explorer warning that requires a user response, you should see it regardless, even if no screen magnification or screen-reader is being used.
 
I don’t see any settings that seem to apply directly to this behavior.  You can try the following:
I'm giving the keyboard and screen-reader ways to do these things.  Since you use magnification, I imagine you would use mouse equivalents. 
Open tools, alt t. 
Open options, o.
Shift tab once.
Press end to move to advanced.
Tab once.
press end to move to the last setting.
Now up arrow until you find a setting that says something like warn if switching between secure and unsecure modes.  It is a setting very close to the bottom.  Uncheck the check box with the space bar than tab to and activate the ok button.
That may not stop the warning but it's the only setting I saw that might apply.

Merv Keck <blind5sparrow@...>
 

Hi,

I had a decent application for Windows 7. However, now that I have the Creator’s update and Windows 10 Home 64 Bit on several laptops and desktop computers, can anyone suggest a good application for tracking internal temperature of my PC computers?

Thanks in advance.

Merv

 


Re: malware bytes

I'm sure there is a way but the real question is what she does to attract so much malware.  With an infestation of that magnitude, it raises the question of whether Windows should be restored to the factory condition if she is using a machine that offers that option.  Who knows what else is on the machine or what back doors may be left even after removal.  Your mother evidently does things or goes to sites where malware abounds.  If she continues to do whatever she does, she should use not the free version of Malware bytes but the paid version with active protection that will stop malware from getting on her machine in the first place.  I read recently that there are now programs that are better than malware Bytes but I don't know enough about the subject to say more.  But your mother needs a good antivirus program and a good antispyware program like Malware Bytes with active protection, not just with the ability to do manual scans.
 
And as a sighted person with no accessibility problems, a two or three year old version of an antimalware program shouldn't be used.

Subject: [TechTalk] malware bytes

Hi All,
 
My mom just ran malware bytes on her computer and according to her it found over 2000 pieces of malware.  I don't know if she's exaggerating, but I do know there are a bunch and she's having to go down and check each one one at a time.  I'm not sure what version of the program she's using, probably 1.75 because I gave it to her and I don't think she would know how to update the actual software, but what does she need to do to select everything all at once for deletion?  She said that I've told her before how to do it, but she doesn't remember how and I don't remember telling her.
 
Thanks.

the buzz clip

Troy Burnham
 

Hi All,
 
Does anyone here use the buzz clip?  I'm thinking of getting one and am just wondering if it'll meet my needs.
 
I'll primarily be using it in an area that I'm familiar with and that has no steps either up or down to avoid, so I'd be using the buzz clip by itself just to get around stationary objects such as chairs.  Since these chairs are obviously fairly low to the ground I thought I could attach the buzz clip to a belt loop, but I would need the width of the beam to cover both sides of my body in case anything I needed to avoid is slightly to my left or my right.
 
Any comments are greatly appreciated.

Just tried tablet again - Google. I found a search I made, what time is it in Moscow, Russia? I finally got to World Clock and Time Zones, but never found out what time it is in Moscow. Could be I'm getting warmer.

Best from,

Carolyn

I did get into Reminders today, but could not figure out where to go from there. Google is my latest challenge now with the tablet. My husband advised that I concentrate on one thing at a time. I am enjoying Google, because there is news, as well as weather, and the other day I downloaded a video I thought might be interesting.

Best from,

Carolyn

Hi TerriLynne,

No worries. I understand that it takes a while to catch up on new messages.
It is the ones that have already caught up who should know better LOL.

I was going through my email from most recently received and I saw a couple
of messages which arrived after yours, but before I read yours. *sigh*

From what I understand, the idea of dropping you off somewhere and making
you find your way back, and cook a meal for forty or whatever it is; if you
can find your way back from a place you don't know, and cook a meal for that
many people is; if you can do those things, you can travel anywhere and cook
anything. And no, they don't expect you to have a GPS. They did that
before GPS existed. Pam.

holy wow. That is insane. How do they expect you to find your way back?
Do they expect you to have a satallite receiver and gps system inside
your head? Also, I heard that they force you guys to do stuff like
woodworking and using power tools? My stance on this is that noone who
is not interested in such work should be forced to do it. It cannot and
should not be considered a general competency, as many sighted people
don't know, or don't wish to know how to do such things. And
additionally, what if said blind individuals don't feel comfortable
using those tools? Or if they lack the physical coordination to use
them? Oh, and what if one of those blindies chops off his arm when using
an electric saw? Is the NFB going to pay his disability and medical
bills then?

when I went to the nfb center in colorado they mostly focused on blindness
stuff and that's it. They also had me do stuff I'd never do in the real
world such as dropping me at a random location and having me get back to
the center on my own without help or asking for directions. Also shopping
for, and making an entire 3 course meal for all students and staff at the
center by myself with no help. In the real world if I get lost I just ask
for directions. And if I'm gunna cook for a party or something that I did
before at my house most times a few people come over to help and its a
team effort. I think that's why I liked Arkansas mmore than colorado. At
lions world in Arkansas I had more friends and discussed computers, video
games, and other stuff besides blindness issues. I did help out there
using duxbury to emboss some bus schedules and stuff but I was bored one
day during my evaluation, wanted something to do... and so i walked into
the one guy's office who was in charge of mobility and other stuff. He
asked if I knew how to use duxbury and so he said there were schedules
that needed brailled and the other staff were busy with students. So I
took the schedules put them in the propper table form and embossed them
which was quite fun. All the rooms there had braille labels on them.
Sometimes during supper if I got tired of soda one guy who used to work in
a restaurant did some messing around with the drink machines so I could
get apple juice or something besides water or soda or tee. And they had a
big screen tv in the gym where people brought their x-boxes or
playStations and one or two of my friends including me stayed up till 4 in
the morning playing video games, mostly baseball and karyoke games. Then
somehow got up at 7 so got just 3 hours of sleep then got up for breakfast
and 8 or so hours of class the next day. Back in 2011 the wi-fi there was
not the greatest and they blocked some sites such as youtube. But we found
workarounds and got to the sites anyway. Most of the school encouraged
jaws for the newbies. But for us in the microsoft certification classes
our instructor encouraged using NVDA on a portable flash drive.

Hi Enis,

<Smile> Well, keep fighting against the Stereo Types by being a good
ambassador for the Blind. Like it or not, Fair or Not, there will be
Generalizations.

Funny that you say you have little to do with the Blind Groups in your
country. After losing my sight, I too was introduced to some Blind
Groups in my area, but I always found them to be squabbling about some
of the most silly things. I just didn't have much to do with anyone
else who was blind until I actually went through a larger Rehab Training
Center, where I made a few Blind friends.

Several years ago, I started to join lists like this one, where others
who were blind were members.

I've made a few friends who are scattered all over the place. We have
other things as common interests other than blindness.

Anyway, I think you will make a fine Ambassador.

Grumpy Dave
