A very important administration message that all members should read

Gene
 

Someone on the list is using an address spoofer to make messages appear to come from people who are legitimate members.  This person doesn't have to be a list member.  He or she can spoof any address of any list member and the list will accept it as legitimate.  So ignore any messages that are out of character such as the one below.  Don't comment on them or discuss them.  The spoofer wants to incite discussion or discord on the list.  If there is no reaction, that will not encourage the spoofer to continue.
 
I am not aware of any way to prevent such messages from reaching the list except for placing the entire list on moderated status.  That will slow down receipt of messages but it will end this problem.  I'll do it if I have to.
 
If people have suggestions about how to deal with the problem, write me off list at

Hi all,

No, Evan, that's Top Tech Tidbits for Thursday by Dean Martineau.
Flying Blind is published by the same outfit but is edited and written by Larry Lewis.

I haven't seen an issue of Flying Blind in a while, expect one shortly, though. It seemed to come out about quarterly.

Re: Seeking a Small Powerbank

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

You must be looking for a surge protector to plug your computers into? If you do not have the power adapter for your laptop computer or the power cord for a desktop, then you would have to purchase replacements for them. The power cord for a desktop is pretty much universal and any one of them should work, but the power adapter for a laptop can be specific to that brand and model, and a generic one may not charge the battery. Check the manufacturer's website for the proper adapter for your model.

other type of USB connection, Type B or C mini or micro USB for the connection into devices
such as phones, tablets, media players and such.

Hi Eleni,

This battery pack might not have as much storage as you would like,
but It's

1 damn nice battery pack! Check out the details below.

products/9635

Accessible 15,000 mAh Portable Power Bank With Audible Tones and
Vibration Feedback Specifically for the Visually Impaired. Includes
Tone and Vibration Mode, Vibration Mode Only and Reversible USB
Input

This portable 15,000 mAh battery is a power bank specifically
designed for the visually impaired. It can be used to charge an
array of digital devices including iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android
smartphones and tablets, Bluetooth

headsets, MP3 players, GPS, and more.
Indicator Features for the Visually Impaired:
Sound or vibration signal for battery level indication Battery level
at any instance is indicated in different sound or vibration patterns.
One to four tones and vibrations indicate the remaining power left in
the battery. Fully charged, the battery will sound four tones and
emmit four vibrations.
Each tone and vibration represents 25 percent with a total full
battery with

four tones being 100 percent full, three being 75 percent, two being
50 percent, and 1 being 25 percent or less.
All this can be easily checked by pressing the single button on top
one time. Output power connection confirmation Sound and/or
vibration signal to indicate successful connection between any

of the USB outputs and the digital device being charged.
This will be indicated by two tones and vibrations sounding three
times separated by several seconds between each sound. After three
times, the battery is silent until another action is performed.
 Input power connection confirmation Sound and/or vibration signal
to indicate successful connection between the

micro-USB input and the power source for charging  This is indicated
by a single tone and vibration sounding three times with

several seconds between each sound. After three times, the battery
will be silent until another action is performed.
Reversible USB output ports
User can easily connect any USB charging cable without worrying about
the plug's orientation or the cable's direction.
The full sized USB end of your charging cable for your device will go
in no

matter which way you have it turned. You will never have to worry
again about which way you have the USB turned as it will go in the
ports whichever way you have it turned. Imagine a USB port that acts
like an Apple lightning port where there is no right or wrong way in
which to plug in the USB plug. This

is a major innovation in USB plugging.
 Optional sound and vibration alert modes Easily switch between
sound and vibration modes by simply pressing a single

button.
Press and hold down the single button on top of the battery to switch
back and forth from tones and vibration to vibration only. Use it in
vibration only mode to be able to discretely check the battery level
without alerting or disturbing anyone around you. Perfect for areas
where quiet is a must, or when you find yourself in a loud crowded
area where tones cannot be heard.
Instead, feel the vibrations rather than try and hear the tones.
Perfect for

any
environment or situation you find yourself in.
 Tactile marks
This accessible power bank is marked with raised-dots for easy
accessibility.
The full sized USB ports used to charge your devices are marked with
two raised dots and also when plugging in a device to charge, the
battery emmits

two
tones that corresponds with the two tactile raised dots.
The micro USB port used to charge the power bank is marked with a
single raised dot and therefore, emmits a single tone when plugged in
to correspond

with
the single raised dot.
Leading-edge Technical Features
This accessible power bank is loaded with leading-edge charging
technologies

and features, bringing users a fast yet safe charging experience.
With 15,000 mAh of power, you can go days without ever having to
charge this

power bank. Charge an iPhone up to 5 or 7 times, an iPad 2 times, and
various other combinations.
Beautiful modern sleek and stylish design that looks as great as it
functions. Style and functionality define this amazing power bank
with a glossy hard plastic finish on the top and bottom with a
brushed hard plastic trim around

the side. Extremely lightweight for its capacity and a minimal size
that will easily fit in a pocket, purse, jacket pocket, bag, etc.
Dual USB ports provide the ability to charge two devices at once as
well as

charging higher amp devices like iPads, tablets, etc. It is easy to
see, that this portable power bank has it all. One of the most
innovative and definitely the most accessible portable power banks
anywhere in the world and on the market.
Includes a nice velvet drawstring carry pouch and a micro USB
charging cable

to charge the battery and can be flipped around to charge any other
micro USB device. Use your other devices own cables to charge devices
that ar not

micro USB.

Take care. Mike. Dodgers, try again next year!

Subject: [TechTalk] Seeking a Small Powerbank


Earlier this year, I bought a power bank. Unfortunately, I don't
have the information on it in front of me, but I think it has a
20000mAh battery. It came with many adapters for phones and
computers. It can charge my Kyocera Rally phone, my TMobile hotspot,
and my Fujitsu Lifebook UH900. The latter can actually be charged up
to three times before I need to plug in the powerbank itself. So I
really have no complaints about it as far as functionality. But it is a bit large.
To put things into perspective, my Lifebook is about nine inches
across and four inches from top to bottom. This powerbank is
slightly larger. It's high-quality metal construction also makes it
quite heavy, and while both can easily fit perfectly into the bag
that I have for them, my whole point in having a umpc is lightness
and good battery life. Does a smaller powerbank exist for such
devices? All of the ones that I have seen, except the one that I
own, are for phones and tablets.

Thanks,
Eleni

Re: Flying Blind

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

No, Evan, that's Top Tech Tidbits for Thursday by Dean Martineau. Flying Blind is published by the same outfit but is edited and written by Larry Lewis.

I haven't seen an issue of Flying Blind in a while, expect one shortly, though. It seemed to come out about quarterly.

Original message:

Yes, Flying Blind is still publishing. I got the most recent edition last Thursday, which is the day each week when it always shows up in my inbox.

Re: FM transmitter

Hello Gene, Ron & list
I got a sighted person to look and it says it is a Veronica transmitter and the screw is for adjusting the frequency. Thanks for all the suggestions.

Is there a way to adjust the frequency that you can find?  If not the screw would likely either adjust the frequency or the power.

just a guess, but because of the limited access, I'd say the screw sets the transmitting frequency so the frequency does not coincide with an on-air  radio station.

Hello list
My memory let me down. Years ago I bought a fm transmitter but now I can not remember the name. I thought it got lost during my relocation two years ago but now I found it. I can not remember how to set it up. It is a metal box of about 12 by 12 by 2.5 cm. It has a little plastic stick with a sharp edge like a screw driver which one inserts in a hole at the back to turn a knob but now I can not remember what the purpose is. Can someone please help me out?

Hi Eleni,

This battery pack might not have as much storage as you would like,
but It's

1 damn nice battery pack! Check out the details below.

Accessible 15,000 mAh Portable Power Bank With Audible Tones and
Vibration Feedback Specifically for the Visually Impaired. Includes
Tone and Vibration Mode, Vibration Mode Only and Reversible USB Input

This portable 15,000 mAh battery is a power bank specifically designed
for the visually impaired. It can be used to charge an array of
digital devices including iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android smartphones
and tablets, Bluetooth

headsets, MP3 players, GPS, and more.
Indicator Features for the Visually Impaired:
Sound or vibration signal for battery level indication Battery level
at any instance is indicated in different sound or vibration patterns.
One to four tones and vibrations indicate the remaining power left in
the battery. Fully charged, the battery will sound four tones and
emmit four vibrations.
Each tone and vibration represents 25 percent with a total full
battery with

four tones being 100 percent full, three being 75 percent, two being
50 percent, and 1 being 25 percent or less.
All this can be easily checked by pressing the single button on top
one time. Output power connection confirmation Sound and/or vibration
signal to indicate successful connection between any

of the USB outputs and the digital device being charged.
This will be indicated by two tones and vibrations sounding three
times separated by several seconds between each sound. After three
times, the battery is silent until another action is performed.
 Input power connection confirmation
Sound and/or vibration signal to indicate successful connection
between the

micro-USB input and the power source for charging  This is indicated
by a single tone and vibration sounding three times with

several seconds between each sound. After three times, the battery
will be silent until another action is performed.
Reversible USB output ports
User can easily connect any USB charging cable without worrying about
the plug's orientation or the cable's direction.
The full sized USB end of your charging cable for your device will go
in no

matter which way you have it turned. You will never have to worry
again about which way you have the USB turned as it will go in the
ports whichever way you have it turned. Imagine a USB port that acts
like an Apple lightning port where there is no right or wrong way in
which to plug in the USB plug. This

is a major innovation in USB plugging.
 Optional sound and vibration alert modes Easily switch between sound
and vibration modes by simply pressing a single

button.
Press and hold down the single button on top of the battery to switch
back and forth from tones and vibration to vibration only. Use it in
vibration only mode to be able to discretely check the battery level
without alerting or disturbing anyone around you. Perfect for areas
where quiet is a must, or when you find yourself in a loud crowded
area where tones cannot be heard.
Instead, feel the vibrations rather than try and hear the tones.
Perfect for

any
environment or situation you find yourself in.
 Tactile marks
This accessible power bank is marked with raised-dots for easy
accessibility.
The full sized USB ports used to charge your devices are marked with
two raised dots and also when plugging in a device to charge, the
battery emmits

two
tones that corresponds with the two tactile raised dots.
The micro USB port used to charge the power bank is marked with a
single raised dot and therefore, emmits a single tone when plugged in
to correspond

with
the single raised dot.
Leading-edge Technical Features
This accessible power bank is loaded with leading-edge charging
technologies

and features, bringing users a fast yet safe charging experience.
With 15,000 mAh of power, you can go days without ever having to
charge this

power bank. Charge an iPhone up to 5 or 7 times, an iPad 2 times, and
various other combinations.
Beautiful modern sleek and stylish design that looks as great as it
functions. Style and functionality define this amazing power bank with
a glossy hard plastic finish on the top and bottom with a brushed hard
plastic trim around

the side. Extremely lightweight for its capacity and a minimal size
that will easily fit in a pocket, purse, jacket pocket, bag, etc.
Dual USB ports provide the ability to charge two devices at once as
well as

charging higher amp devices like iPads, tablets, etc. It is easy to
see, that this portable power bank has it all. One of the most
innovative and definitely the most accessible portable power banks
anywhere in the world and on the market.
Includes a nice velvet drawstring carry pouch and a micro USB charging
cable

to charge the battery and can be flipped around to charge any other
micro USB device. Use your other devices own cables to charge devices
that ar not

micro USB.

Take care. Mike. Dodgers, try again next year!

Subject: [TechTalk] Seeking a Small Powerbank


Earlier this year, I bought a power bank. Unfortunately, I don't have
the information on it in front of me, but I think it has a 20000mAh
battery. It came with many adapters for phones and computers. It can
charge my Kyocera Rally phone, my TMobile hotspot, and my Fujitsu
Lifebook UH900. The latter can actually be charged up to three times
before I need to plug in the powerbank itself. So I really have no
complaints about it as far as functionality. But it is a bit large.
To put things into perspective, my Lifebook is about nine inches
across and four inches from top to bottom. This powerbank is slightly
larger. It's high-quality metal construction also makes it quite
heavy, and while both can easily fit perfectly into the bag that I
have for them, my whole point in having a umpc is lightness and good
battery life. Does a smaller powerbank exist for such devices? All
of the ones that I have seen, except the one that I own, are for
phones and tablets.

Thanks,
Eleni

Re: THE main stream vurses PEARL SCANNER

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

The Pearl camera works with all modern Windows operating systems and should work with NVDA, but it will only be recognized by the VFO products like Jaws, Openbook, Fusion, and some of the Optilec products as far as capturing documents for reading and editing purposes. It will not be recognized by other products as being plugged into your computer. The most widely recognized product will be some brand of flatbed document scanner. Epson makes some great ones and Canon as well makes some that are capable though they are not of the best quality. Hp also manufacturers scanners but they are cost prohibitive for most people. I use the Epson Perfection V550 Photo Scanner and it works well. It is faster than any of the 3 Canon scanners that I have owned and if the glass is kept clean it gives flawless results. I also like the fact that it has a separate power cord and is not USB powered, and it also has a power switch to turn the scanner on and off with. The cost through Amazon was around $160.

If this is a document camera, I, too, am very interested in buying one of those! Like you, I want a mainstream one, as it will cost far less than the Pearl. In my case, though, it must work with NVDA and either Windows XP, Windows 7, or both.

I look forward to hearing other responses to your question, as well as user experiences. If someone suggests something and I find it at a good price, I will post it here to help you as well.

Good luck,

Hello, I saw the pearl scanner over at our lighthouse for the blind. I
want a portable scanner like the pearl but, I do not think I should

or NVDA? I sure would like to cut down on the cords and the amout of
