Resetting the Stream: There are 3 different types of Reset options for the
Stream.

1, hold the power button down for about 7 seconds. This resets the hardware.

2. The next level of Reset (which usually clears up most software problems)
is a profile reset. This will
erase all bookmarks, book positions, and will return volume, tone, speed and
other settings to their
factory default. This will not erase any user keys . Those will remain just
as they are. To do a profile
reset, power off the Stream if it isn't already off. Then, hold down the
bookmark key and the 5 key while
powering on the Stream. You should hear a message saying
"Creating New Profile".
Again, this does clear up most problems with the bookmarks and such things.

3. The third and probably the most drastic measure is a Factory Reset.
note, This will erase all bookmarks, book positions, and user keys ), and
will reset all other settings back
to their factory defaults. Remember, if you do this, you will need all your
user keys that you received for
your Stream. Any keys from NLS, RFB&D, and System Access Mobile, will need
to be re-installed. Before
you do a factory reset, make sure you know where those keys are, because
getting them back could be a
hastle. To do this, power off the Stream if it isn't already off. Then, hold
down the 2, 6, and 8 keys while
powering on the Stream. You will hear a menu of options. Use the 2 and 8
keys to navigate this menu.
Navigate to the choice that says, "Factory Reset" and press the Pound
(Confirm) key.

hi,
if concerned by privacy, it's pointless to come from apple to windows, it's just as bad, if not worse. screen reader support, however, changing to NVDA, especially now that we have 2 screen readers could pay off in the long term.

Hi Olusegun,
Thank you thank you for all this great information! I'm just so tired and

after next year, I just won't pay the MSA. FS is just to exspensive, and if
I can get another screen reader that can do most of the samethings as JAWS,
so be it! I am seriously considering learning and using NVDA as my screen

an application from my own pc, and after hearing so much about how Windows
10 will actually force their updates right on to my own pc, and I understand
there are work arounds for these issues as well, but if they can remove an
application, and force updates, where is my privacy and rights as a
consumer? Oh yeah, I do get to pay for the pc though! Smile! These are
just some reasons I am considering leaving Microsoft. I was considering
purchasing a Android tablet, because wow, now, I'm a little disappointed
with Apple, and the reason I say this is because Apple is very exspensive.
Besides, I know when I send a text message from my iPhone, what ever I say
in that text is going to go across Apple, and Apple says this is because
this is there way of trying to improve Siri. So, I say again, where is my
privacy and rights.
I'm still not for sure which tablet I'm going to purchase yet though. I
want to research all I can before purchasing any tablet, although, I was
considering an iPad as well, but then I'm still with Apple!
Just my personal opinion.

Janet, I am slowly KICKING Windows and its associated screen readers down
the drains and gutters; I am electing to switch to Android full-time.
As has been suggested, if you feel drawn to Android, the Galileo Pro from
Walmart is indeed a good buy. It runs on Marshmallow and you can use an SD
card to expand its storage space.
I believe Josh only referenced the Windows tablet from RCA just in case you
might be interested in taking a hard look at one.
Curiously, since you seem to be more familiar with the iOS platform, how
come you're not electing to purchase an iOS-based tablet? My curiosity
notwithstanding, having something close to the best of both worlds might not
be a bad idea! For me, I tend to STICK with what I have tested and found to
be as reliable as it gets. I didn't vegetate towards iOS because I dislike
overtly proprietary stuff and I love to explore, it's my way of learning how
to THINK outside the box!

Smart to weigh the pros and cons. To me the priority is can
I use it? If I can, I want the easiest. I am not out to
prove anything to anyone.

Another tablet option is the Amazon Kindle Fire. I like its
screen and speakers. My husband is using one. He just loves
the thing. Its screen reader is called Alexa, and I had to
change in JAWS dictionary to make it pronounce A l e x a
correctly.

It is a sort of Android cousin, but, by no means pure
Android. You might know all of this, but in case you did
not, I was telling you. Accessible electronics sells them
and sets them up to make them easier for blind people to use
by getting certain features downloaded that you would need.
They advertise quite often on the Blind Best list the best

Janet, I love the screen reader TalkBack. She sounds better
than JAWS.

I have been learning one thing at a time. Yes, I have been
on the net some, and I'm getting there.

I have Gmail, and Joshua, who really knows this stuff,
advised me to get Aqua Mail. I probably will try it.

My husband said to learn one thing at a time and get
proficient. That is what I have been doing. When I first got
it, I wondered if I'd really get very far, but it is coming
right along. It really would be cool if I could have a
couple of one-on-one classes, but that simply is not to be,
so it's up to me. However, HJoshua answered a million and a
half questions, has been so patient and nice about it. Like
I told you, I have the list of commands he sent me, and if
you get one, I'd be happy to share them with you.

Yes, that is a good advantage of the keyboard, which is for
a lot of typing.
I had to adjust to it. It is a Google keyboard. Below the
Spacebar is a wide area, which contains a mouse, that I can
use some. The thing is that you have to be sure not to rest
the heels of your hands on it, or it does all kind of crazy
stuff. First, I thought it was me sitting in my recliner,
but I am able to do that, just have to be sure not to have
any part of my hands or wrists in the area below the
Spacebar. If you get one, check it out real well. The area
does not go all the way across the bottom of the keyboard.

The fourth key from the left goes directly to Settings. To
use Notifications or Overview, for Notifications, you press
Control+Alt+N, and for Overview, Control+Alt+R. When you go
into Overview, it will have the last few screens, so, maybe
you're on Gmail, tab twice to Dismiss, press Alt-Enter.
Usually the next program, maybe Settings will appear, and
you are right on Dismiss, just Press Control+Alt+Enter.

Carolyn

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.

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

WITH VIRUSES to this very minute. I have installed all

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

Some virus checkers in Android land can be battery hogs,
meaning that they may drain your battery far faster than you

Re: Magic Jack On An iOS iPhone.

Your tablet is on Wi-Fi. So you go to settings, and I think
Wi-Fi is the first option. You enter on Wi-Fi, and your
Wi-Fi probably is the one on the top. Then you enter your
Wi-Fi password. You know, of course, that once you are on,
whenever you come into the house, you will be connected. It
won't work, if it is not connected with the Internet. I
guess you could use docs to write stuff, but the clock and

Re: 2 Android questions

Well, the stream charger has little teeth on the end that
goes into it, and the one for my cell phone does too. The
RCA Galileo Pro tablet charger has a round connector that
fits into the tablet on the left side as you use it with the
keyboard in landscape mode. If you do not attach the
keyboard, you have it upright in the portrait mode, and the
power cord fits into the top, as does also the headset.

Incidentally, on Android, you have the option to set the
screen to where it will not automatically, as I would guess
that you do on Apple. I told my husband the first time or
two with the iPhone or the Kindle when it switched to just
give the device a quick turn, and it would right itself.
He's always been good with electronic stuff and taught
electronics in community college. I have learned new stuff
from the lists and then shared with him.

Hi Carlos,
The principle exactly, , thank you! I was hoping someone would think the
same way I am thinking! There is no privacy anymore! This stincks Loll! I
don't know which way to go with all this! Between Microsoft, Apple, etc,
I'm not sure what tablet to buy. Wow, this is a shocker! You know Carlos,
the more I research, and the more I learn, I'm suddenly coming to the
conclusion there just isn't any privacy anymore! This is not right! Loll!

Thank you.

For all the naysayers, apparently privacy is in fact a big concern for
many users these days. Even Google is received enough criticism that
they're finally going to be changing their policy of scanning private
E-mail for the purpose of targeting you with personalized advertisement.

Hi Olusegun,
Thank you thank you for all this great information! I'm just so tired and
discouraged and disappointed with Microsoft, Windows, Outlook, JAWS. I
already paid FS for the MSA agreement for the next 2 versions of JAWS,
so after next year, I just won't pay the MSA. FS is just to
exspensive, and if I can get another screen reader that can do most of
the samethings as JAWS, so be it! I am seriously considering learning
and using NVDA as my screen reader. I thought about downloading
Windows 10 on to my Windows 7 64 bit pc, but after hearing so much
about how Microsoft has the ability to remove an application from my
own pc, and after hearing so much about how Windows
10 will actually force their updates right on to my own pc, and I
understand there are work arounds for these issues as well, but if
they can remove an application, and force updates, where is my privacy
and rights as a consumer? Oh yeah, I do get to pay for the pc though!
Smile! These are just some reasons I am considering leaving
Microsoft. I was considering purchasing a Android tablet, because
wow, now, I'm a little disappointed with Apple, and the reason I say
this is because Apple is very exspensive.
Besides, I know when I send a text message from my iPhone, what ever I
say in that text is going to go across Apple, and Apple says this is
because this is there way of trying to improve Siri. So, I say again,
where is my privacy and rights.
I'm still not for sure which tablet I'm going to purchase yet though.
I want to research all I can before purchasing any tablet, although, I
was considering an iPad as well, but then I'm still with Apple!
Just my personal opinion.

Janet, I am slowly KICKING Windows and its associated screen readers
down the drains and gutters; I am electing to switch to Android full-time.

As has been suggested, if you feel drawn to Android, the Galileo Pro
from Walmart is indeed a good buy. It runs on Marshmallow and you can
use an SD card to expand its storage space.

I believe Josh only referenced the Windows tablet from RCA just in
case you might be interested in taking a hard look at one.

Curiously, since you seem to be more familiar with the iOS platform,
how come you're not electing to purchase an iOS-based tablet? My
curiosity notwithstanding, having something close to the best of both
worlds might not be a bad idea! For me, I tend to STICK with what I
have tested and found to be as reliable as it gets. I didn't vegetate
towards iOS because I dislike overtly proprietary stuff and I love to
explore, it's my way of learning how to THINK outside the box!

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
Shift+Alt+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,

Janet, I love the screen reader TalkBack. She sounds better than JAWS.

I have been learning one thing at a time. Yes, I have been on the net some,
and I'm getting there.

I have Gmail, and Joshua, who really knows this stuff, advised me to get
Aqua Mail. I probably will try it.

My husband said to learn one thing at a time and get proficient. That is
what I have been doing. When I first got it, I wondered if I'd really get
very far, but it is coming right along. It really would be cool if I could
have a couple of one-on-one classes, but that simply is not to be, so it's
up to me. However, HJoshua answered a million and a half questions, has been
so patient and nice about it. Like I told you, I have the list of commands
he sent me, and if you get one, I'd be happy to share them with you.

Yes, that is a good advantage of the keyboard, which is for a lot of typing.
I had to adjust to it. It is a Google keyboard. Below the Spacebar is a wide
area, which contains a mouse, that I can use some. The thing is that you
have to be sure not to rest the heels of your hands on it, or it does all
kind of crazy stuff. First, I thought it was me sitting in my recliner, but
I am able to do that, just have to be sure not to have any part of my hands
or wrists in the area below the Spacebar. If you get one, check it out real
well. The area does not go all the way across the bottom of the keyboard.

The fourth key from the left goes directly to Settings. To use Notifications
or Overview, for Notifications, you press
Control+Alt+N, and for Overview, Control+Alt+R. When you go
into Overview, it will have the last few screens, so, maybe you're on Gmail,
tab twice to Dismiss, press Alt-Enter.
Usually the next program, maybe Settings will appear, and you are right on
Dismiss, just Press Control+Alt+Enter.

Hi Janet,

Yes, this has been their policy for quite some time now. Of course, they say it is only for the purpose of providing targeted advertisement, but as I always say, it's the principle.

For all the naysayers, apparently privacy is in fact a big concern for
many users these days. Even Google is received enough criticism that
they're finally going to be changing their policy of scanning private
E-mail for the purpose of targeting you with personalized advertisement.

Hi Olusegun,
Thank you thank you for all this great information! I'm just so tired and
discouraged and disappointed with Microsoft, Windows, Outlook, JAWS. I
already paid FS for the MSA agreement for the next 2 versions of JAWS,
so after next year, I just won't pay the MSA. FS is just to
exspensive, and if I can get another screen reader that can do most of
the samethings as JAWS, so be it! I am seriously considering
learning and using NVDA as my screen reader. I thought about
downloading Windows 10 on to my Windows 7 64 bit pc, but after hearing
so much about how Microsoft has the ability to remove an application
from my own pc, and after hearing so much about how Windows
10 will actually force their updates right on to my own pc, and I
understand there are work arounds for these issues as well, but if
they can remove an application, and force updates, where is my privacy
and rights as a consumer? Oh yeah, I do get to pay for the pc though!
Smile! These are just some reasons I am considering leaving
Microsoft. I was considering purchasing a Android tablet, because
wow, now, I'm a little disappointed with Apple, and the reason I say
this is because Apple is very exspensive.
Besides, I know when I send a text message from my iPhone, what ever I
say in that text is going to go across Apple, and Apple says this is
because this is there way of trying to improve Siri. So, I say again,
where is my privacy and rights.
I'm still not for sure which tablet I'm going to purchase yet though.
I want to research all I can before purchasing any tablet, although, I
was considering an iPad as well, but then I'm still with Apple!
Just my personal opinion.

Ok Google on an iPhone.

Hi Everyone,

I have an iPhone 6 with the latest update, and I downloaded Ok Google from the app store, but I can only get Ok Google to tell me the time of day.  I went online and researched Ok Google, and they say it is fine for an iOS phone, but can’t get it to tell me anything other than the time of day. 

Any thoughts?

 

Thank you all in advance.

Hi Carolyn,
This all sounds great, and I can't thank you enough for all the information
you have provided! That is just what I was thinking if it would be possible
to switch the chargers. I have a Victor Stream as well, but the charger on

Stream is the very first one that came out, matter of fact, I don't even
remember the full name other than it is a Victor Stream Reader.

If it's possible, grab a book by one of my dear

and is
available from the National Braille Press in various
formats. This
book can and will help you GET YOUR FEET on the Android

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
GoogleGroups; here, you will meet a lot of

tempers do flare,

Also on the list, Talkback developers lurk. They
answer

provide helpful tips. Talkback is independent of the

as such, no

Talkback.
Talkback 6 is currently in the beta cycle.

I hope the foregoing is helpful in some shape or form.

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.

Joshua, how do you go about NLS with your tablet. You
download
through BARD?

I was thinking about sending my reader back, but now
this problem
with my Victor Reader?

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.

Yes you can. It is on my Google tablet. The good thing
about Android
is that it is very flexible. You can get all kind of
apps
from the
Google Play Store. You can change a lot of your icons.
I
probably know
less about it than anyone, so Olusegun and Joshua can
fill
you in more
on what all it can do for you.

Best from,

Carolyn

Thanks for this post.

Can I use Google Chrome as my web browser with
marshmallow?

James, Android can be fun! It will be a brand-new
learning curve, but
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
GoogleGroups; here, you will meet a lot of
knowledgeable
folks who can
help you faster than I can. Be aware that sometimes
tempers do flare,
but if, like me, can ignore some of the cacophony,
you'll
become a
teacher and senior apostle of Android before I put my
shoes on to
begin running!

To subscribe, please send a blank message to:

eyes-free+subscribe@googlegroups.com

Also on the list, Talkback developers lurk. They
answer
questions and
provide helpful tips. Talkback is independent of the
OS;
as such, no
need waiting for an OS upgrade in order to get one for
Talkback.
Talkback 6 is currently in the beta cycle.

I hope the foregoing is helpful in some shape or form.
Arigatōgozaimashita!


Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado
