Hi all,
the app is not a spam.
it consists the stories and the writers are our own.
We are writing these stories by ourselvs.
The app has not been published to the playstore yet and that's why the
bit.ly
link has been provided.
we do not plan to release the app on the playstore for around 1 month.
The link leads you to the google drive download page.
it's your own choice that you want to use the app or not, but don't
point us and there's no need to write bad about us.

Re: Navigating Facebook, and looking for the login/logout section

Peter Spitz
 

I concur with using m.facebook.com. It is what I use and I use FB
multiple times a day. Once you logout, you can log in using another
account buy clicking on the bottom link to log in using another
account. Clocking on the labeled buttons for each account does not
work for me. The reason I need to go back and forth is because I
monitor my teenager's account.

Hi Gene,


I am a weekly subscriber to Scambusters: http://www.scambusters.org.


They have been giving numerous exqamples of messages that are spam and phishing e-mails. Length of the message is definitely not any guarantee or even pointing away from spam.  Many spammers use lengthy and official sounding e-mails to hook people and induce them into clicking on links that will endanger their security.


Another sure sign according to Scambusters is poor and somewhat vague linguistics.  By this I mean something obviously written by someone not familiar with English who for some reason seems to be targeting an English speaking audience.  This message--whatever it is--meets that criteria.


I am not saying that I am sure this message is Spam, but one should be careful and note the warning signs that I have mentioned.

But my objection is not to an honest discussion of such a phrase being aired on list.  My objection is to the assumption that such a message is spam. 
 
Such a message could have been spam but it's unlikely.  People were far to fast to more or less assume the message to be spam without any evidence.  Being careful until it is known whether a message like this is spam is a good idea.  Being so definite about it is not. 
 
In such a case, common sense and logic should be applied.  Consider context:
While possible, would a spammer really go through all the trouble to write this long message, join this group of blind people and send the message as spam?  Spammers want to reach very large groups of people.  This method is so inefficient that it is unlikely that a spammer, at least a spammer with any sense, would put in the time.  In other words, being careful is one thing.  not applying common sense and just assuming something is spam without evidence or logical reasons to explain why someone would go through all this trouble to spam hundreds instead of millions, is a triumph of, as Roosevelt might say, "fear itself." 
 
I have no objection to people discussing and raising the question of whether a message such as this might be spam.  But making more or less definite judgments when logic and context make it a very opened question is not, in my opinion, a way to promote the goals of the list.  The list is intended to be welcoming.  People who sincerely want to contribute something should not be potentially alienated and put off in this way.

Hello there,

<smiling>  You didn't give me your name.   My name is Ann.

Look my friends, you need help to advertise your app.  You need someone
who speaks English well to help you to write ads that are professional.

First, you need to quit saying "our beloved community".  This does not
mean what you think it means.  You are talking down to us.  You are
saying "oh, nice poor little blind people, nice poor little blind
people," and it is like you are patting us on the head, like you are
above us.  It is like you are acting toward us like you would act
toward very young children.   Get rid of those words!

Second, this ad needs more information.  Who are you?  Where are you
located?  Who is writing the stories?  How long are they?  Are they
only short stories or are they longer books?  Why are you writing them?
Are your authors blind themselves?  When do you expect the app to be
ready?  You need to give as much information as you can in the shortest
way.   Who, what, when where and why?

Third, you may want to think about changing the name of your
organization.  Glorious Ecstasy makes people think of the pleasure that
comes from good sex.  I am sure this is not what you wanted to say,
unless that is exactly what you are selling?

Again, you need help to advertise your product.  Find somebody who can
speak English well, not just the English you learn in school, but
someone who knows what things say in addition to just the simple
meanings of the words.

I don't want to say bad things about you.  I want to help you.  If you
think that is bad, OK, but you will not get many people to use your app
unless you get help to make the ads right.

Hi!

I use:

m.facebook.com

All of the time with IE 11.

The mobile site is the easiest to use in IE.

That is the only web site I use in IE, because it is so easy to navigate.

The reward of Facebook is overwelming, because there are many happening groups for the blind

Just arrow down from the top, and you can press enter on messages, notifications, and so on. Just press e for Edit a couple of times, and you can type a post.

Take care, and let me know if you all would like for me to do a text tutorial on using Facebook!

I think it was more so the not being familiar with Android's ability to install applications outside the playstore that caused the question as to whether it might be spam. Does sound like a neat idea for some though and awesome that you guys are offering it to those who might wish to try it out before you launch it there. That does sound pretty cool.
Take care.

Hi, Focus on Internet Explorer on your desk top.
Press Alt with the Enter key.
Tab twice, here you will press the key you want to go with Control and the Alt, to make up your shortcut key.  You could choose I, or n, for example.
I am a bit fuzzy on how many Tabs you do, but one of them will allow you to choose the window state, I find down arrowing to Maximize here and that seems to make it work the best.
Now you will Tab several more times to the OK button.

Subject: [TechTalk] Placing shortcut keys for programs on the desktop
 
Hi, everyone,
I’m wanting to place shortcut keys on my desktop that will then activate the corresponding program.
For example, I want to have a shortcut key from the desktop I can press that will bring up internet explorer.
If anyone can help I would really appreciate it very much.
I’m running windows 8.1 and jaws 18

Re: Glecstasy: Launching the new app for our beloved community! : Stories reimagined!

Hi all,
the app is not a spam.
it consists the stories and the writers are our own.
 We are writing these stories by ourselvs.
The app has not been published to the playstore yet and that's why the
bit.ly
link has been provided.
we do not plan to release the app on the playstore for around 1 month.
The link leads you to the google drive download page.
it's your own choice that you want to use the app or not, but don't
point us and there's no need to write bad about us.

Creating a shortcut to a folder is similar to that of a shortcut to a
file. Making sure your pointing to the right user profile can be a
little tricky, but I learned this command line entrye from reading one
of Carlos's posts.

Press the windows key on your keyboard and type the following into the
textbox, then press the enter key.

%userprofile%

This will open a file explorer window under the current user profile
your logged in with right now, lots easier than trying to navigate to
it manually.

Arrow down to the downloads folder.

Press the context key or Shift + f10.

Arrow down to "send to" and press the right arrow to open the fly out menu.
Arrow down to "desktop, creat shortcut" and press the enter key.

HTH,
Blaster

I'm using Windows 10 and I would like to have Downloads as a shortcut.
This would be different than placing Internet Explorer. Thanks for any
help.

Hi, Focus on Internet Explorer on your desk top.
Press Alt with the Enter key.
Tab twice, here you will press the key you want to go with Control and
the Alt, to make up your shortcut key. You could choose I, or n, for
example.
I am a bit fuzzy on how many Tabs you do, but one of them will allow
you to choose the window state, I find down arrowing to Maximize here
and that seems to make it work the best.
Now you will Tab several more times to the OK button.
HTH!
