Subject: [TechTalk] Bluetooth problem

Hello,

 

My Lenovo X260 pc is running Windows 10 and JAWS 18.0.4104.

When I boot up, my Bluetooth device connects, I can hear JAWS talking through the device, I enter my password and press enter and the Bluetooth device disconnects.  This is happening with 3 different devices; one headset and 2 individual speakers.  I can’t imagine JAWS causing the problem.  But, I’ve seen stranger things in the almost 30 years of using the product.

This just started about 2 weeks ago.

 

Any hints/suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

Reed

available to you? If you don't get it fixed I'll give you a

I'm not Mike, but I can answer you. It should be right under
the size option and descending should be right below it.

You might also make sure that list or details, I use
details, is checked in the view menu as well. That shouldn't
matter, but sometimes computers are picky.

Re: firestick with alexa

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

 

Hi Kathy,

 

I own 2 of the Amazon Fire TV Sticks, and I feel that they are the best product for streaming Video given the quality and                 price. The Fire Stick works great and comes with many apps that can be easily installed on the device. If you are a Amazon Prime member, then there of course are the Prime Video movies and shows available, and as many people are Netflix subscribers, it is easy to set up and use on the stick as well. There are apps provided by some of your local TV stations for viewing network shows, news and sports that they air. Alexa is great, and she works just like on an Echo. I often ask her to play specific types of music and what the weather is. I believe you would like the Fire Stick. Hth.

Re: some USB 3 questions

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

Here is what I found on the voltage and current output of the different USB ports. The wattage (power) can easily be calculated as per the formula shown:


"The USB 1.x and 2.0 specifications provide a 5 V supply on a single wire to power connected USB devices.

A unit load is defined as 100 mA in USB 2.0, and 150 mA in USB 3.0. A device may draw a maximum of 5 unit loads (500 mA) from a port in USB 2.0; 6 (900 mA) in USB 3.0."

As power is equal to current times voltage, all you have to do is multiply 5V with the current the device is drawing from the port.

Subject: [TechTalk] Windows update caused Skype audio settings problems


After my recent update to Windows 10 build 15063 (which I think is the
Creator update everybody's been on about for months now), my audio
devices in Skype have all been rearranged, and no matter what I do, I
cannot get them re-rearranged correctly. Here's what's happening.

In the Tools -> Options -> General -> Audio Settings dialog, the
Speakers selection combo box is OK, but in the Microphone section, two
devices are shown, and I don't want to use either of them. So, I
select the "Show advanced options" button, and now I can access all my
audio devices. Again, in the Speakers combo box, the correct device is
checked. Checked? There was never a checkbox there before. Now where'd
that come from? OK, it's correct, I leave it alone. But in the
Microphone combo box, there is a checkbox next to a device I don't
want to use. I have tried pressing the space bar on it to uncheck it,
tried that technique on the device I really do want to use, it does
not get checked, I've tried with real and virtual mouse buttons,
nothing changes. I did find a Remove button and two pairs of Up and
Down buttons. Remove doesn't remove anything. I can move things up and
down in either combo box, but I cannot change the status of the
checkboxes. And if that's not enough, after fiddling with the Up and
Down buttons with mouse-clicker controls in my screenreader, and then
saving changes, the settings revert back to what they were before I
started monkeying with them. What am I doing wrong, and how can I
straighten this out? The problem seems to be on a per-account basis
bec ause somehow I was able to fix it when logged in to another
account, but even then, it took me forty-five minutes to do so. So
until I can get this straightened out, I can't use Skype. Any
suggestions?

Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Re: blind orgs and the amount that they charge for tech and things.

My whole thing is people still keep forgetting you can lease wich a
lot of people do, so they are not spending 600 plus bucks out right
for these devices. They can just trade them yearly or every 18 months.
70 dollars for a plan is not really bad, but if you are super careful
with money. You can find a cheaper plan I am sure. So please having a
smart phone is not so expensive if you don't wish it to be.

amazing things they can do with Voice Over. And the damn thing
doesn't even have any buttons or a headphone jack, and you can't even
replace the battery yourself. What a scam!!!

What amazes me these days is what a company charges for a device for the
blind when there are apps for the iPhones that will do the same
thing. Sure
not all blind folks have iPhones, and from what I hear the iPhone 8 is
likely to be more than twice the price of the 7, but my mom puts work
into
braille for the blind students in the local school district, and a
year or 2
ago she told me about a device she had heard of that cost $1800. I don't
remember what this device was or even what it did, but I remember
thinking
at the time that she told me that there was an app for the iPhone that
would
do the same job for a lot less money.

The pricing found on most items, devices or Appliances meant for the
Disabled is really outrageous.
It's not just adaptive equipment.
Have you seen what they charge for real high end scientific calculators?
How about super computers.
Specialized drills for oil rigs.
How about those thermometers for measuring deep sea vents.
High end microphones used for professional studio work.
Real high end cameras that can take picturs of bacteria.
Any specialized equipment which is not mass produced but only has a few
hundred thousand items sold world wide, if that, is going to cost a lot.
Now I don't agree with the fact that government is being charged more
than
the consumer. That expense ultimately gets passed on to us working
folk in a
crude parody of incest. But I do understand (even if I don't like it) why
adaptive equipment costs quite a bit of money.
