Ignore the sound thing, decide if the word is case sensitive and select the language it applies to.

I can't figure out how to make jaws pronounce words differently. When I
open dictionary manager it asks if I want to add a new word. I type in etc
and then tab to what seems like a request to spell the desired word
phonetically and I do this. The next tab asks about sounds which mystifies
me. I continue to tab and reach an end point, so the entire exercise is in
vain.

Re: FireFox 57

I'm sure you can organize them but I see no reason to do so because there is such a good search function.  In the main program window, execute the command control I.  You will be in a search edit field.  Type something you want to look for, part or all of the name, even just one word or part of a word will do.  But if you type more and if there are multiple occurrences, you will see less results and the correct one will be there if you've typed something that is a part of that book mark.
Then tab once and up or down arrow through the list.  First letter navigation may work but I'm not sure.
Press enter on the item you want and it will open.  then use control I again to toggle search off.
there is a book mark I have from The New York Times site called Today's paper.  I just search for 's pap.  That's apostrophe s space pap  I have a page on the zap to it television listings as a bookmark.  I just type zap
 
If only one item is found, down arrow to select it.  I'm not sure if you need to up arrow after down arrowing or not but you need to select it before you press enter. 
 
The bookmarks search looks through all bookmarks, whatever folders they may be in so it doesn't matter how they are organized.  I don't organize book marks because the search feature is as good as it is.

antivirus and firewall solution

Thomas N. Chan
 

Dear all,

It’s the time of the year, or shall I put it. three long years my security solution with Eset.

I think I should review the current status of what I am using now. I am not sure whats out there which its accessible, comes with firewall, IPS and best of all these, I can read, customize the settings as I need.

Eset security  suite version 8 was good for what is doing for that period of time. I would like to see whats out there in last two years, what I can do  or approach after January 2018.

 

If you all can suggest anything I can try, I will love to trial them. paid is not an issue as I don’t think security suite with firewall, ips and firewall customization are…. Free.

Microsoft security essential is not an choice, since it does not comes with any sort of firewall. Window firewall itself is good for what it does but  it does not comes with any signature IPS.

 

In worst cases, I don’t mind sticking with Eset, renew it for the next few years. I just don’t feel with version 8, it can handle the thread out there beside its updated signature. I don’t wish Eset to tell me one fine day, no more updates to this old version.

 

cheers

Re: Keyboard Recommendations

Mary Otten <maryotten@...>
 

Hi Amon,
I’m sorry, because I obviously missed the initial requirements for the keyboard to be Bluetooth. My keyboard is not Bluetooth. It is USB. It has no labels on the key caps, and when you plug it into a Mac, it works there. When you plug it into a PC, it works there. I don’t know how they do that. Das keyboard does make at least one Bluetooth keyboard, but it may not be usable on both a Mac and a PC. And it is quiet. It has the cherry brown switches. I know I have seen references to it. Sorry for the fact that I missed the Bluetooth requirement

Re: Keyboard Recommendations

Hi Joe,

The Logitech MK850 meets all your specifications except for one. It is not mechanical. It is, however, bluetooth, can be used with iOS and Windows at the same time, has a number pad, has a six-pack, and has offset arrows. It is also quiet. To the best of my knowledge, and I would be very grateful indeed for correction, this is the only widely available keyboard which meets all the specifications below.

Hi Jeff,

 

Here in Canada, all the bills are the same size, in fact, the same size as U.S. bills.

The difference is that all our bills have full braille cells on each bill, and the number of cells, their position and number, allow us to know the denomination.

A five has one cell, a ten has two, a twenty has three, and a fifty has four.

A one hundred has two cells, but with the two in the middle, as on the fifty, missing.

A pretty simple, yet brilliant, system, for its ease of use, especially after the bills get worn a bit.

Hi everyone:

I have the currency reader from the treasury department. It’s pretty good. But since I got my iPhone, I have started using a free app called MoneyReader. It’s great! It reads currency instantly!

I like the idea of different shaped coins representing different denominations of money. Unfortunately, that will never happen.

Hi Jeff,

 

I have an I Bill  currency reader and it works fine.  I've been using it for 3 years now.  Until the government comes to its sense and ditches paper money and replaces it with different shaped coins, (see my previous message) I'll keep using it or until it breaks.

I'm not sure why   the Canadian government, came up, with this idea, I think it's not very intelligent.

The dots get warn out so easily on bills because money can be squished or many other things.

So I think the different sizes of a bill would have made life even better.

Some people don't have the ability to feel the dots because of medical reasons.

The American's behave complaints from sight end people trying to get the exact reading of a bill.

The colors issue is huge to.

So why Canada choose this method is very puzzling.

 people who developed the cell on Canadian currency should have asked the blind what this  method would look lie after money is exchanged millions of times.

I've had problems feeling the dots, but a different of bill sizes, would have been great.But again people make designs for the blind without consulting every one.

Can you really feel the dots after the bill has been used as much as a bus?

Hi Jeff,

 

Here in Canada, all the bills are the same size, in fact, the same size as U.S. bills.

The difference is that all our bills have full braille cells on each bill, and the number of cells, their position and number, allow us to know the denomination.

A five has one cell, a ten has two, a twenty has three, and a fifty has four.

A one hundred has two cells, but with the two in the middle, as on the fifty, missing.

A pretty simple, yet brilliant, system, for its ease of use, especially after the bills get worn a bit.

 

Best,

 

Rod

I know that the I phone has an app to read currency.  I was told that the NFB or some other such organization sued the federal gov because our currency is inaccessible.  Unlike other countries all of the bills are the same size.  I’m told that the gov has issued a free money reader.  Does anyone know where I can obtain one?

Thanks,

Jeff

I use my card most of the time. I also have my money reader on my
Iphone for those times I might need it.
