I don't know how you lost your battery. It's not soldered to the unit. Anyway, I can't provide you with that info. Sorry.

Hi

but I lost my battery, that is problem,


can you tell me what bateri or what is name of battery,


how meny battery and so on.


other word explain to me if you can about battery.

Yes, your question is an answer at the same time. Braille lite only
works when the battery is installed. So you need to put the battery
back in there even if it doesn't hold a charge. That way you can just
plug in the charger and you can work with it.

Task Manager Tip

Rob <captinlogic@...>
 

If you're on windows 10 and find yourself using the task manager, and you find that first letter navigation does not work. I figured out how to fix that.
Go to view and press enter on the item that says
"Group by type checked"
This will make the list view much more navigable.


New Autosizer Wrinkle

Rob <captinlogic@...>
 

ON my system, I have a program called Notepad 2
http://www.flos-freeware.ch/notepad2.html
On a whim, I fired it up and wouldn't you know, it came up maximized. Even if I opened it with a file in explorer. Just to make sure, I turned off autosizer. It came up in a normal window. Turned autosizer back on and tried again, it came up maximized.
Now I have no clue why it worked with notepad2 and not notepad, the default windows app.


Re: QWERTY Phone

Gene
 

I'll make this message as short as I can.  It is somewhat long, however. 
 
You may not want to continue the discussion and that's fine.  I may be trying too hard to convince you of something I think may benefit you. 
 
But first, regarding number pad texting:
I wasn't concerned with what you literally said.  it was the context and what someone might have been reasonably expected to infer.  Your second message made much more clear what you were saying and why.  I think your first message implied, not stated, what appeared to be skepticism.  I'm not saying you intended to do so.  I'm saying that I think it did, intended or not.  You and others may disagree.
 
I also wrote what I did because of what may be your strong resistance to change.  I say may be because there may be other explanations and you may not actually be resistant to change.  I'll point out another possible explanation later.
 
I strongly believe that the main reason most people have problems switching from XP to Windows 7 is because Windows 7 isn't explained properly to them or they don't see what I'm pointing out when they look at it.  Windows 7 allows you to do things in the same way as XP generally.  There may be this or that small exception but if you know XP, if the similarities are pointed out, it can be demonstrated that almost anything can be done identically or almost identically with the two systems. 
 
If it ain't broke don't fix it is fine but most of the changes in Windows 7 actually make it more convenient to work with by giving people more options and you don't have to work with them if you don't want to.  To take one example, a new way of shutting down the computer is available in Windows 7.  But you can use a shut down dialog that is almost identical in Windows 7 to that in XP.  You don't have to use the new way.  I won't give more examples here--the message is already long enough.
 
If Windows 7 wasn't presented to you in that way or it wasn't clear to you from looking at it yourself, that might account for your hostility.  It may have nothing to do with resistance to change. 
 
I'm not assuming you will find learning or adapting to the changes easy.  I don't assume how people will learn.  I say that in general, if well taught, the changes can be shown and understood to be able to be mostly avoided if desired and many people would find them in general  to be minor. if people do want to try them, many people prefer to use some of the changes.   
 
So, if what I wrote seems pushy, that isn't the intent.  At first, I thought you might be better served using Windows 7.  Now, that isn't my concern.  I'm not saying that you should use Windows 7.  I'm not saying that you shouldn't use XP and I'm not saying that you should not use Linux.  given some peoples' objections to Windows 10 because of privacy concerns and forced updates and since Windows 7 won't be supported in about two and a half years, some people might wish to switch to Linux for such reasons instead of upgrading to Windows 7.  I don't know enough about Linux to know if the same quality of programs such as reading programs are available or if accessibility is as good in Linux.  I gather that Linux is more of a techie operating system where users may have to go through more procedures and problems setting up things like peripherals. 
 
but I'm not trying to convince you to use any particular operating system or version of Windows including whether you use XP or not.  As I've said, I don't know if you have a lot of resistance to change or if Windows 7 just seems to you to be very different, which is a different reason.  That's why I'm going into all this.  If you do have resistance to change, looking at my material may convince you that I am right about Windows 7.  If the reason is that for whatever reason, Windows 7 seems to you to be significantly different from XP, seeing my material may cause you to be less quick to reach conclusions and to seek out more information in future before reaching a conclusion.  If either of these results occurs, you will benefit.  If neither does, you'll have lost nothing but perhaps an hour of looking through and trying procedures I use as examples.

Hi,
No. Technically, you are allowed to search in a book. I can't recall just which key does it, but you can search for page numbers, or even phrazes. And you use the keyPad for input.

While I am a prescriptivist in grammar, and while I like to explain myself clearly and debate with civility, I feel as if I am back in Honour's Logic, where my every word is scrutinised. I also said "I can't imagine", which is stating an opinion. I, personally, can't see how this is possible. I didn't say "it is a fact that", or "I know that", or simply "no one can do this". I wouldn't expect anyone to read my personal opinion as an absolute fact, as they are two different things.

The only time I would ever need to work with ribbons is in Wordpad and Notepad, and I have changed both of them so that is no longer the case. As I said, I seee no need in complicating things that already work well.

Returning to the actual topic of this thread, does anyone have information on the systems that I mentioned, or does anyone have a phone that he would be interested in selling to me?

Thank you,
Eleni

Does anyone here use Linux? I am interested in trying it, to see if

Orca to start in it. After some research, I learned that other users
had the same issue. I tried Sonar, but the sound is so low that I
need to use headphones, even when my computer volume is at the highest
setting. Vinux works, but I have heard good and bad things about it.
Some people say that it's good, and others say that it's too far
behind regular Ubuntu and that there are better options available, not
specifically designed for the blind. Regardless of which version I
choose, I need something with good documentation or tutorials, as I am
new to all of this. Note that, while I am trying these on a Lenovo
Thinkpad X61 with a 2.20GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4gb of ram,
and a 148GB hard drive, if I choose to use Linux regularly, I will
probably install it on an Asus 1015E with a 1.1ghz Intel Celeron 847
dual core processor, 2gb of ram, and a 320gb hard drive.

My biggest concern with using any version of Linux is the espeak that
comes with Orca. They don't appear to have updated to the latest
engine, which means that the improvements that enable it to read
polytonic Greek won't be available to me. I am also worried about
updating programs in general, since, from what I know, it's different
from Windows. I don't really understand the concept, but I think it
has something to do with searching for files and downloading packages.

Finally, I am curious as to the different desktop environments. What
are the differences between Mate, Gnome3, and Unity, and do any others
exist? Which is the most accessible? how difficult, overall, will it
be for me to use Linux in general? Just to give you an idea of my
computing experience, I have used MSDOS, Windows (95, 98, XP, 7, 8,
and Mobile), OSX (Leopard and Snow Leopard), and Android (Jellybean
and Kit Kat). I didn't like Android or Windows 8, and could barely
tolerate OSX

Re: Name of App for reading Blood Sugar Levels

Donna
 

To use the Dexcom Share app he would have to have the Dexcom monitor which just monitors blood glucose levels via a sensor that gets inserted into the abdomen, thighs, back of arms or buttocks. The Dexcom monitor is different from a blood glucose meter. My 13 year old has a Dexcom monitor. It is my understanding that the wearer of the Dexcom sensor/transmitter needs an Apple device. Night Scout is another way to monitor blood glucose levels with the Dexcom but I am unfamiliar with Night Scout. My 13 year old has an iPhone so we use the Dexcom Share & Dexcom Follow apps which are in Apple supported apps. 


If you need more specifics on the Dexcom & its use you can contact me off list mermaid7@... 

 
H Everyone,
 
I would like to find an app that will work with an Android device so my husband can find out his blood sugar levels.
We have been told they are available.
He would prefer to use a tablet and not a cell phone.
 
According to some information I have been able to locate, the RCA 11 Galileo Pro 2-in-1 tablet with detachable keyboard is popular.
Would this device work with the blood sugar app?
 
Someone has recommended the app dexcom.com
which works with an iPhone.
Is there an equivalent of this app for an Android tablet?
 
Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
It would be nice to find an accurate app which would avoid him having to stick his finger to draw blood several times a day.
 
Thanks much for your assistance.

Hi all,

That's why the free market place works so well. We have choice in what we
do. I hate touch pads, and I found that texting with a number pad is
doable. I understand that it might be hard for some.
Choice is
independence.

Hi,

seems to meet your specifications and works well. It is better than Word in some areas, in fact, though it can do fewer advanced tasks.

Blog Post: How I Access Android – The Apps & Accessories Pt. 2

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,
The seemingly impossible usage of Touch Screen is a misperception I
elucidated in a previous blog post titled How I Access Android – The
Fundamentals Pt. 1
(https://bhavyashah125.wordpress.com/2017/03/31/how-i-use-my-moto-m-pt-1),
but the story of non-visual Android access doesn’t end there. To learn
about the magnitude of the possibilities open for blind Android users
in terms of accessibility of other smart devices, third party apps,
Smartphone accessories, etc., check out the second in this series;
‘How I Access Android – The Apps & Accessories Pt. 2’.
“But are visually impaired people just able to make basic phone calls,
send and receive SMS, and probably use Whatsapp as well on a
rudimentary Smartphone, or can they truly partake in this global
shift? More specifically, can Google Talkback users utilize the
various kinds of smart devices Android fuels, the millions of diverse
apps on the Play Store, and the essentials to the cutting-edge of the
mobile world?”

The first thing you should probably find out is if it is listed in Disk Management.  If so, then you can just assign it a drive letter.  TO open Disk Management, access the
"Run"
dialog by pressing Windows key+R and type
diskmgmt.msc
followed by Enter.

I used a thumb drive to create a Windows 10 install using the Windows Media Tool, Is there any way to format the drive and erase the Win 10? When I put the drive in the USB port, I hear the tone telling me that the computer recognizes it but I can find no trace of it in File Explorer.
Thanks, Marie

I like texting with the number pad. If I could get a smart phone that would
do that, it would be tempting to do so before my Verizon contract is up. I
really like it from the Stream pad, because you can press that key above the
three to get capital letters, lower case or numbers.

Re: Linux Questions

Josh Kennedy
 

I don't use vinux, its a bit behind ubuntu. so I just use ubuntu mate because its a light desktop that doesn't need lots of memory and runs fast. and orca works good with it.

Some people say that it's good, and others say that it's too far

specifically designed for the blind. Regardless of which version I
choose, I need something with good documentation or tutorials, as I am
new to all of this. Note that, while I am trying these on a Lenovo
Thinkpad X61 with a 2.20GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4gb of ram,
and a 148GB hard drive, if I choose to use Linux regularly, I will
probably install it on an Asus 1015E with a 1.1ghz Intel Celeron 847
dual core processor, 2gb of ram, and a 320gb hard drive.

My biggest concern with using any version of Linux is the espeak that
comes with Orca. They don't appear to have updated to the latest
engine, which means that the improvements that enable it to read
polytonic Greek won't be available to me. I am also worried about
updating programs in general, since, from what I know, it's different
from Windows. I don't really understand the concept, but I think it
has something to do with searching for files and downloading packages.

Finally, I am curious as to the different desktop environments. What
are the differences between Mate, Gnome3, and Unity, and do any others
exist? Which is the most accessible? how difficult, overall, will it
be for me to use Linux in general? Just to give you an idea of my
computing experience, I have used MSDOS, Windows (95, 98, XP, 7, 8,
and Mobile), OSX (Leopard and Snow Leopard), and Android (Jellybean
and Kit Kat). I didn't like Android or Windows 8, and could barely
tolerate OSX
