Re: Kindle question

I grabbed KindleForPC-installer-1.19.46099 that was posted on this list which was supposed to work, but it isn't that large, only 66. mb
 
Would the other one be on Amazon somewhere?
 
I thought this one was supposed to work.

The discussion is assuming that the United States can outlaw this standard in the United States.  I'm not assuming either way, but no one has stated nor documented that this can be done.  This is a completely separate issue from net Neutrality, which the United States does have jurisdiction over.

This does not sound good, because it gives to much protection to the developers and leaves us out in the cold. The Internet is going to get more and more governed, and we are not going to enjoy the net, and its openness like we have been blessed with. I am concerned about this!

Re: Firefox Add-Ons

Carlos
 


According to everyone who has tried WebVisum with versions later than 52, it does not work.  And based on the version number displayed on the Firefox add-on page, there has been no update.  The developer may have simply been expecting compatibility with versions up to 55 based on information available at the time when he posted the last update.  I cannot speak for other add-ons.

Greetings, gang.  A few list members have commented that the Webvisum add-on no longer works with Firefox 52 and higher.  But I just checked the official Mozilla add-ons page for Webvisum, and it states that Webvisum works with Firefox versions 3 to 55.  So I’m wondering.  Does Webvisum, in fact, work with the latest version of Firefox, which I believe is Firefox 54?  And what about other add-ons like Plain Old Favorites and Navigational Sounds?  Do they also work with the latest version of Firefox?  Or is Firefox 51 or 52 the last version that supports these add-ons?

It's not a problem. Even list owners occasionally have to be reminded to behave. Besides, I agree that personal attacks should be kept off the list, but sometimes you just can't help yourself and it's not as if we said anything truly horrible.

Hi all,

I don't know the gentleman at all, Carlos, and you may have good reason
to complain about his arrogance et al. However, since I don't know
him, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Apparently, he is
conscious of the fact that his posts are copyrighted, as per U.S.
copyright law. He is asking that you cite his post properly. this
might seem arrogant because none of us do this. He is, however, within
his rights to do so.

Citing information properly is one of those things which is ignored
most of the time by list members all over the Net. However, it is the
ultimate rationale behind the prohibition against cross-posting. The
right thing to do, if you find something on a list which isn't an
announcement and isn't meant for wide distribution is to ask permission
before reposting it. Do people do this? No, they don't but they
should. Is anyone caught and fined or arrested for violation of
copyright law referring to Internet postings, no. It's usually too
small a violation and just goes under the radar.

ICORS makes particular note of copyright law when applied to list
postings in its rules and regs. We who've been listowners for St.
Johns University's SJUVM and later with ICORS are familiar with the
copyright regs.

Now, This Free Tech guy may or may not be arrogant, as I say, I don't
know him, but the copyright laws are a fact. He just may be particular
about his own posts. Anal, probably, arrogant, maybe.

It is good info, though. I've saved it. Have a great day all.

Alright man, now you're buy enough a bigger issue then probably what you can chew off. LOL. Smiles! Now let me get down to the nitty-gritty of this and hopefully this will provide you with a little bit more help and assistance for this friend/individual. Anybody who owns a Mac can provide technical assistance to one that has a Mac. For instance myself, I give one-on-one support everyday two people that are needing help with their Mac. And I either walk to doing instructions, via email or the old-fashioned telephone if they're so interested. All and let me just remind you, that my services are free and less I have to come and actually work with the person. Which is never ever had to be the case since I've started doing such services which is a blessing for them. My thingies is giving back to the community, so if they're looking for any kind of technical support, please feel free send them my way I will give them as much knowledge as I possibly can. It also depends on what they're wanting to do with the Mac and all that kind of good stuff too. So we can definitely get the ball rolling in that department. So if they're interested, please give them my information which is below in my signature. I will definitely be looking to hear from either you or them your choice. Having a tandem session, is not always necessary or needed with the Mac. Most blind people can comprehend keystrokes in order to get the job done

Well, VoiceOver is solid enough, well built and well interfaced with a good enough quality sound, and sometimes you know, having just one quality product can make life so much easier then having to choose what is right for one's nheeds because let's face it, however many the choices are, one cannot determine which is best because one screen reader, for example, serves better in certain areas and not others.
Which is why, for example, most of us on windows have two screen readers to make up for one or the other's quirks. I have not known my Mac book pro to Hang or have blue screens while in use, or Voiceover glitching at awkward moments, while windows screen readers tend to lag more often, especially when something memory intensive is going on. I am not advocating that the Mac or VoiceOver is perfect, but it seems to me that if a product can fulfill most needs in it's eco system, then why change it by having another product just for competition sake? Cheers!

I think in Apple's case, they believed in respecting one's privacy and just letting you navigate the device yes, you can get stuck in but unlike Microsoft, who makes computers or HP or any of those companies, you can actually walk into an Apple store, if you have an issue going on with your computer and get it fixed right there. Whatever comes to Windows, you either have to would you think is a good thing. call somebody for assistance or take it to a third-party fixer to get it fixed. Not in the case of Apple products.

I'll get back with you on Ted talk whenever I come back with a solution. As I'm sure that there are seriously needing such service.

Hi All,

I am planning on creating a couple of virtual servers for use with the network I manage.

What is the best software in terms of accessibility with screenreaders out there that will allow me to do this?

Thanks

now, let me tell you a story, since it's story writing time. someone was telling me, how she can#t mute the music, in her game. she has apparently tried every possible key combination. so after about half an hour of explanation, she got NVDA remote to work. so I was able to connect, and since I knew my keyboard, I muted her music within 3 seconds. turns out she was using the wrong key, or so I got told yesterday. Joseph, how would this have got done without remote support, please? it's not a matter of knowing, or not knowing your stuff. it's a matter of sometimes, unless you're there, it's either nothing or remote.

Technical support via E-mail or the phone is not the same as support via remote access. If a person has little or no technical aptitude, they may not always be able to follow complex instructions very well, especially when dealing with more advanced issues. If it were that simple, there would be no need for such a thing as remote support.

Alright man, now you're buy enough a bigger issue then probably what you can chew off. LOL. Smiles! Now let me get down to the nitty-gritty of this and hopefully this will provide you with a little bit more help and assistance for this friend/individual. Anybody who owns a Mac can provide technical assistance to one that has a Mac. For instance myself, I give one-on-one support everyday two people that are needing help with their Mac. And I either walk to doing instructions, via email or the old-fashioned telephone if they're so interested. All and let me just remind you, that my services are free and less I have to come and actually work with the person. Which is never ever had to be the case since I've started doing such services which is a blessing for them. My thingies is giving back to the community, so if they're looking for any kind of technical support, please feel free send them my way I will give them as much knowledge as I possibly can. It also depends on what they're wanting to do with the Mac and all that kind of good stuff too. So we can definitely get the ball rolling in that department. So if they're interested, please give them my information which is below in my signature. I will definitely be looking to hear from either you or them your choice. Having a tandem session, is not always necessary or needed with the Mac. Most blind people can comprehend keystrokes in order to get the job done

Well this is not about windows versa Mac or did I intend to go that way. They both have their place. It is about having accessible remote access for the blind. As a person who might consider the Mac to me this is a big deal when getting tech support or training on the mac from someone other than a sited user from Apple. That is my point.

Well, VoiceOver is solid enough, well built and well interfaced with a good enough quality sound, and sometimes you know, having just one quality product can make life so much easier then having to choose what is right for one's nheeds because let's face it, however many the choices are, one cannot determine which is best because one screen reader, for example, serves better in certain areas and not others.
Which is why, for example, most of us on windows have two screen readers to make up for one or the other's quirks. I have not known my Mac book pro to Hang or have blue screens while in use, or Voiceover glitching at awkward moments, while windows screen readers tend to lag more often, especially when something memory intensive is going on. I am not advocating that the Mac or VoiceOver is perfect, but it seems to me that if a product can fulfill most needs in it's eco system, then why change it by having another product just for competition sake? Cheers!

Hi Matt, yeah you would think that there would be something like that out there but so far I don't believe that there is. I will definitely do some checking around and see if there are any Mac users that no of search capability and see if there is some ways to do something like this. I'll get back with you on Ted talk whenever I come back with a solution. As I'm sure that there are seriously needing such service.

hi,
sharing an iCloud, not APP store ID is a bad idea to start with. or so I'd think. this is just yet another example as to why it is a bad idea.

Hello Janet, yes you would be correct. They cannot control one s screen. The only thing that I noticed is that they have that capability to view your screen and look at your settings for your device. What was very nice. So let me tell you a really funny story though, and this is something that everyone should be careful with. My girlfriend and I share an Apple ID which is tied to my credit card. And so when I was having issues with something and regarding my iPhone the clerk decided to do screen sharing with me which was fine. My girlfriend who lives across town accepted the screen sharing request on her iPhone, and how I knew it was her is because I knew what she was up to. The lady on thee other end of it so what the heck was going on. And she's saw my girlfriend posting a Facebook status on Facebook. So she was almost quite scared to reconnect to me but I reassured her, that I didn't get to the connection request quick enough so my girlfriend had accepted it for me. And it wasn't hope see. I knew who was typed to my Apple account so I could've easily called her and let her know hey don't accept this if you see it pop up on your screen they're needing to see my iPhone which I didn't do. So I finally reassured the clerk, that I would connect are etc. connection request as quick as I could. Which I did the next time and she felt very released.

Hi all,
I don't know the gentleman at all, Carlos, and you may have good reason
to complain about his arrogance et al. However, since I don't know
him, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Apparently, he is
conscious of the fact that his posts are copyrighted, as per U.S.
copyright law. He is asking that you cite his post properly. this
might seem arrogant because none of us do this. He is, however, within
his rights to do so.
Citing information properly is one of those things which is ignored
most of the time by list members all over the Net. However, it is the
ultimate rationale behind the prohibition against cross-posting. The
right thing to do, if you find something on a list which isn't an
announcement and isn't meant for wide distribution is to ask permission
before reposting it. Do people do this? No, they don't but they
should. Is anyone caught and fined or arrested for violation of
copyright law referring to Internet postings, no. It's usually too
small a violation and just goes under the radar.
ICORS makes particular note of copyright law when applied to list
postings in its rules and regs. We who've been listowners for St.
Johns University's SJUVM and later with ICORS are familiar with the
copyright regs.
Now, This Free Tech guy may or may not be arrogant, as I say, I don't
know him, but the copyright laws are a fact. He just may be particular
about his own posts. Anal, probably, arrogant, maybe.
It is good info, though. I've saved it. Have a great day all.

was about to say over at the chat list side of things, saying how he has not changed at all, not one bit.

Hi All,
I received the following set of steps off list from Joseph Free Tech
for using 1 key to tell time & date. This looks like a very good
approach for the 1 handed typists.
Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Hi Mike,
Regarding your JAWS SayTime and date question...
I'll provide the following solution with the condition that you
convey to
others that it was Joseph Freetech who provided the solution. :)
I have been suggesting this solution to others for a few years now,
and I've
never heard any complaints, in fact, I've heard amazement after the
person
presses the hotkey. In the instructions below you will be
configuring the
PauseBreak key to act as the Insert+F12 key. There is absolutely no
need for
modifying scripts--you're simply adding an additional keyboard
assignment,
which should not get in your way whatsoever--unless the person is
using the
PauseBreak key for something else.
You will be modifying the JAWS keyboard manager.
1. Press JawsKey+8 (on the numrow) to open the JAWS Keyboard Manager.
2. Press ControlShift+D to open the default keyboard manager.
3. Tab to show the list of all keyboard assignments.
4. quickly type the following letters until you find the following
script:
SaySystemTime.
5. Press Control+A to activate the following item: add keystroke.
6. Press the PauseBreak key then tab to Ok and press enter.
Note: on a normal 104 key external keyboard, the PauseBreak key is
the third
key on the 3-pack of keys to the top right of most standard
keyboards. If
you can't find it, turn on the JAWS help to locate this key.
Note: use the JAWS cursor and read the entire screen to insure you have
assigned the PauseBreak key and no other key.
7. After pressing on Ok, you will be asked by JAWS if you are
certain you
want to modify the JAWS keyboard manager, so simply press enter on Yes.
8. Press the PauseBreak once, and you should hear the time. Press the
PauseBreak key twice quickly within half a second of time, and you
should
hear the date.
Note: this also works on laptops, though it might be a little harder
to find
the PauseBreak key if you don't have sighted help.
Please let me know if you have any difficulties with this process. :)

Re: BARD web site..?

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

No, no, no, no, this is *not* about the BARD site. This is about the general NLS site. True, you can get to the BARD site via this one, but this is *not* about the BARD site. This is about:

http://www.loc.gov/nls

Please, Gerald, would you get your information straight before passing it on?

Ann P.

Original message:

Yes, the BARD site is down so that the BARD staff can prepare for the launch of the new BARD site next week.

hi,

humanware do offer a payment plan for certain devices, it's worth calling, and asking them.

Subject: [TechTalk] Texting an International Number


I have a number for a friend of mine who hasn't been seen for a while.
The country code is 47. It was my understanding that you had to add a couple of zeros somewhere in the number.
So you would do something like
0047-555-21222
Could somebody correct my information if it's wrong? I haven't had to dial an international number, ever lol.
