Josh,
I will need a new login and password to use with the tablet, even though, I
already have a login and password because I already download to my computer?

Do I really need to add to my wish list before I can download to the tablet?

you get a login and password from your library service, then you log in with
the app. you add books you want to download to the wishlist, then you go to
the wish list and download them using the tablet. its quite easy and the app
has all features you know and love from your nls player, some things don't
work with physical keyboard and you have to find the buttons and double tap
them. but its fine. nls put big easily findable buttons in their apps.

I also think I will send my nls book player back to the library,
because I just use my tablet and android phone to listen to nls bard
books now, and it works very good.

James, Android can be fun! It will be a brand-new

I know you can weather the storm and become a better guru
than I at
it!

If it's possible, grab a book by one of my dear sisters,
Ana Garza and
Jim Meddaugh! It's titled Getting Started with Android
and is
available from the National Braille Press in various
formats. This
book can and will help you GET YOUR FEET on the Android
side of
things.

Also, please plan on coming to Android with an open-mind!
It's not iOS, and I don't see the lines of demarcation
getting erased
anytime soon.

Please also consider joining the eyes-free mailing list on

It is a touch screen, but it has a Google Keyboard with it.
It is really nice, and the way the keyboard is made with it, it is really
like a little mini computer. It folds and makes a nice case.

You can add an SD card, I believe 128 gb. Joshua Kennedy will know.

My Wal-Mart did not have one, so I bought mine from Amazon.
I didn't think to check Wal-Mart online. But still, I paid $109; Joshua says
Wal-Mart has them for $80, I think $79.99.
It has Google TalkBack, and I have now adjusted her to the fastest speed.

If you use it without the keyboard, you need to power off the device, and if
you reattach the keyboard, you need to power off. It is flexible that way,
so you can use it either way. I really think that a person can get good
value from one.

I think that the future is leading to tablets and phones.
I'm not sure why one might have both. I got the tablet to learn to use the
Google platform so that I could get an Android phone, which is a more
expensive investment. I am glad that Joshua told us on the list about them.

If you get one, I'll send you the key strokes that Joshua sent me, because
that makes it way easier, if you know how to navigate. You have to use Alt
with Arrow and Enter and things to move about or enter. You use
Shift+Alt+Enter for Long Press, which is more or less a menu. If you are
using the screen, you double tap and hold. Ana Garza in her book said when
you double tap, it is like a two-sylable word. My husband's last name is
Samples, so I think Samples, as I double tap, and I am opening things now.

Re: 2 Android questions

the books do not take up much space at all. maybe 200mb or so per book and the tablet has 32gb storeage so you got lots of room for nls books. the sound quality is just as good as the nls player. its even better when you plug speakers into the tablet. I generally delete each book after reading but keeping books on there won't hurt. i can read for 8 or so hours before having to plug the tablet in and once plugged in i just keep reading while it charges.

Judging from the Stream, a book would not crowd the tablet
that much. Now, you'd want to get an SD card to load 10 or

Hi,
Wow, I couldn't even imagine being without my LNS book
player, as I never go to bed without it! Doesn't the books
use a lot of space on your tablet, or do you just delete
each book after reading? Does the tablet sound as good as
the LNS player, as I love a great sound when I'm reading a
good book?
Does reading books run down the batteries on the tablet, or
do you just keep it plugged in? I ask these questions
because I am seriously considering buying a tablet.

Thank you for any information.

Indeed, but in this case there seems to be a problem validating with the product key.  My point is if she winds up having to purchase a new Windows installation, she might as well purchase a recovery disc from the manufacturer instead which will be less expensive, will include all necessary drivers and the product key, and less risky than purchasing a cheap activation from eBay for example that might or might not work.

You don't necessarily have to buy a new installation disc.  If you can retrieve your product key, we can get you a download link to an ISO image you can use to create an installation DVD or flash drive.  If you installed Windows 7 on the machine yourself, you should use one of these utilities to retrieve your product key.
If the machine came with Windows 7 preinstalled, you should retrieve the product key from the COA key sticker usually found on the side or back of the case.  You can purchase an installation disc on Amazon, but as you can see below at $169 they are rather expensive.

This one is a touchy subject! Personally, I don't use any virus

and half years, I have had NO INCIDENCES WITH VIRUSES to this very
minute. I have installed all manners of aps on my devices with no
problems; it has not bothered me whether or not the apps I installed
were secured or otherwise. My toys keep working flawlessly and no virus checkers of any kind.

If installing one makes you feel more comfortable, please feel free to
do so. Whilst there are several virus checkers on the Android
platform, the two common ones I have heard of are Avast and LookOut!
Feel free to install any or both of these and play with them before
settling for the one you like better.

Some virus checkers in Android land can be battery hogs, meaning that
they may drain your battery far faster than you want to see happen. I
don't believe that the two mentioned here at that way; but, again, I

Re: Talking caller ID on a Panasonic cordless phone

andy.tidwell
 

I will tell you what I found with mine, I can leave my phone off the charger all day until bed time at night and have
no issues but my wife leaves hers on the charger most of the time and her batteries may last an hour so I came to the conclusion that the batteries build a memory even though some people say they don't.
Do not get the cheap batteries they don't hold up. I put my phone through a rough life using it in the shop and it has accidentally been dropped in to a fan of a running car and lived through it. I am like a bunch of you the only thing that is annoying is it saying cell phone N.C. instead of the phone number and that wireless caller stinks too.

I have two of those free standing caller ID boxes, and the strange thing is that only one of them as it turns out works with call waiting. This caused me to do some rewiring of my phone system. I only point this out so you may be aware that a free standing box might not do call waiting at all.

Yes, those Classco units are the best option. It's unfortunate that they're no longer being manufactured. And no other manufacturers of talking caller ID devices ever seem to consider including features such as speaking the number and Call Waiting Caller ID. That's most likely because companies such as Panasonic don't specifically design or include talking Caller ID with blind users in mind. It's included as an afterthought or convenience for users in general.

I’m getting many calls from people and companies that I do not know.
Therefore, I do not know their numbers. And, its too many calls to deal with.

I just hooked up my Classco caller ID. It reads numbers instead of names.
Now, in most cases, I will know who is calling before I pick up.

Hi all,

Wherever the info is obtained, if it's a cell phone, unless the caller's name and cell phone is in the contacts list of the phone, it will say, "Wireless Caller". He complained that he doesn't want to hear Wireless Caller because he can't tell which of his wireless caller friends is calling. So I suggest he put those numbers in the contacts of the phone, so that when those wireless callers ring his phone, it will tell him if it is Sally or Don or Mom or Uncle Fred, or the handiman.

It already speaks the names of incoming callers. He wants it to speak
phone numbers instead. And the name information is transmitted as
part of the Caller ID signal. It is not retrieved from the internet
or an electronic phone book.

Hi all,
James, if you put the wireless callers you know in the contacts of
the Panasonic phone, it will announce their names. You gotta give it
some info that it can't get from the internet and the electronic phone book.
If
you put Sally's Mobile in your contacts on the phone, when Sally
calls, you'll hear Sally instead of Wireless Caller.

It is a touch screen, but it has a Google Keyboard with it.
It is really nice, and the way the keyboard is made with it,
it is really like a little mini computer. It folds and makes
a nice case.

You can add an SD card, I believe 128 gb. Joshua Kennedy
will know.

My Wal-Mart did not have one, so I bought mine from Amazon.
I didn't think to check Wal-Mart online. But still, I paid
$109; Joshua says Wal-Mart has them for $80, I think $79.99.
It has Google TalkBack, and I have now adjusted her to the
fastest speed.

If you use it without the keyboard, you need to power off
the device, and if you reattach the keyboard, you need to
power off. It is flexible that way, so you can use it either
way. I really think that a person can get good value from
one.

I think that the future is leading to tablets and phones.
I'm not sure why one might have both. I got the tablet to
learn to use the Google platform so that I could get an
Android phone, which is a more expensive investment. I am
glad that Joshua told us on the list about them.

If you get one, I'll send you the key strokes that Joshua
sent me, because that makes it way easier, if you know how
to navigate. You have to use Alt with Arrow and Enter and
things to move about or enter. You use Shift+Alt+Enter for
Long Press, which is more or less a menu. If you are using
the screen, you double tap and hold. Ana Garza in her book
said when you double tap, it is like a two-sylable word. My
husband's last name is Samples, so I think Samples, as I
double tap, and I am opening things now.

Best from,

Carolyn

Hi Carrolyn,
I am seriously considering buying a Android tablet. You
sound like you are quite happy with your RCA Galileo pro
tablet. Can you add more space on the tablet if need be? Is
it a touch screen? I was trying to follow the thread the
list had going sometime ago, but my inbox just fel asleep,
so I didn't get all the info I would have liked to get.

Thank you in advance for any info.
Janet

I don't have a virus program on my RCA Galileo Pro Android
tablet, and I do really like it. It works too. I had been
negligent to check notifications.
After I had it for about a month, I did - TWENTY UPDATES! I
let them run, and you can bet I check notifications every
day now.

Best from,

Carolyn

This one is a touchy subject! Personally, I don't use any
virus checkers on my Android toys! I've been with Android
for nearly four and half years, I have had NO INCIDENCES
WITH VIRUSES to this very minute. I have installed all
manners of aps on my devices with no problems; it has not
bothered me whether or not the apps I installed were secured
or otherwise. My toys keep working flawlessly and no virus
checkers of any kind.

If installing one makes you feel more comfortable, please
feel free to do so. Whilst there are several virus checkers
on the Android platform, the two common ones I have heard of
are Avast and LookOut! Feel free to install any or both of
these and play with them before settling for the one you
like better.

Some virus checkers in Android land can be battery hogs,
meaning that they may drain your battery far faster than you
want to see happen. I don't believe that the two mentioned
here at that way; but, again, I don't use a virus checker in
any of my Android toys! May be I am postponing the
inevitable, but I sure want to LEAVE well alone especially
if it's working as expected.

More questions? Please don't hesitate to keep sending them
through. There are a number of Androideans in the house who
will step up to the plate if I can't get to them fast
enough! All the best sire.

yes you can add more space. I also have the RCA galileo pro tablet. yes it is a touch screen but you can take the tablet flip it up put it down on the magnetic keyboard dock and turn it instantly into a nice android laptop with physical keyboard. it works great. and its only $80 from walmart. walmart also sells RCA cambio tablets with a simila form factor but they run windows10 home, yes a full windows 10 home tablet with physical keyboard and mouse for $149 from walmart and they too have touch screens oh and you can expand their storeage with sd cards.
