google hang outs from my iphone

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Hi,

Can someone explain to me how I can do a group call using google hang outs? While we are on the subject of group calls, is it possible to do group calls

via facetime? If so, how?

Thanks a bunch!

does anyone know if the amazon echo works in ireland? I thought the one available to the UK may work over here but I am not sure if it does.
besides listening to music, what else can I do with an echo?

Flip smart phones.

Carolyn Arnold
 

A guy on Blind-Best is selling this phone. It is a ZTE Cymbal-T LTE flip smart phone, Android Lollypop 5.1. The one he was selling runs on CDMA. He was asking $70 and had case, cable, etc. It has a removable battery, 3.5 headphone jack, and how I would love to have it, only I have such a good deal with a carrier with GSM. I really hope that the phones will become more available.

 

I went to Google and saw a couple of demos, but they were given by sighted people. The last one, in particular, demonstrated what all could be done with the touch pad keyboard, since he likes buttons for navigation. The phone has 1 gb ram and 8 gb storage with a 32 gb SD card. I just hope they become more available.

 

Some of you know I was bitten pretty bad by buying a flip smart phone, and Voice Assistant would not work on it. When we downloaded TalkBack, it would work, but it would not stay, and would have to be reset within 10-15 minutes of no use.

 

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God,

 

Carolyn

Subject: [TechTalk] windows movie maker

Hi,



I have a wrestling website, facebook, and youtube. No, I'm not promoting
just follow me here.



I've been researching since last Saturday on how to upload an audio to
youtube which youtube mainly uses video. I I have to include a photo with
the audio

in order for it to be accepted. So, currently, I'm using powerpoint to put
the podcast and photo and save it as a video file in order to upload it.
What

I don't like is after I save it as a WMV, the exporting to video takes
several hours. I have about 16 podcasts I need to upload to the youtube page
for

the wrestling channel.



So, with movie maker, I know this can be done as it relates to putting a
photo with an audio, but what experiences do people have with using movie
maker

with jaws?

Unfortunately, the only Accessible Youtube or alternative Youtube
sites that I know of are just for playing videos. They can't help you
as someone who uploads them. But if you're seeking the former, here
it is.

Re: iphone automatically switching to speaker

Vicky Collins
 

I've been having the same problems with my 6S phone running iOS 11.2. The issue with the call not connecting for five seconds, or at least my caller not answering me until then, I've just kind of gotten used to it and try to remember to wait. As for the call switching to speaker phone after the call has been in progress for 30 seconds or so, moving the phone away from my ear, then hitting the home button and then putting the phone back to my ear, seems to take care of things for the rest of that call.

Here's a thought. When you send or receive calls you can tap the
speakerphone button to force the speakerphone to be used no matter how
your holding the phone, right? So if you enable the call routing
function in settings, then tap the speakerphone button when you make
or receive calls, it should force the headphone option to stay on
regardless of how your holding it, right?

You could try this by doing the following,
Open the Settings app on the iPhone and head to General, then go
to Accessibility
Look under the Interaction settings for Call Audio Routing and tap on it
Change the setting from Automatic (the default) to Speaker to make
speakerphone the default for all calls made to and from the iPhone

It's not a fix, just a work around if it works.

Re: iphone automatically switching to speaker

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

When I installed iOS 11.2.1, this issue went away. However, through the update, Apple has introduced some new sound effects into the OS, and each time I move the phone it makes the same noise that it used to make when something went wrong, like dropping a call. Now when I raise the phone to my ear, I hear this soune, when I switch ears I hear this sound, everything I do I keep hearing this sound. It is driving me crazy. I called Apple and they had me turn sound effects off in Settings under General\Voice Over\Audio just where I thought the sound effects would be located, LOL, and after turning this off, my phone stopped making all sounds that I am used to hearing.

Re: Extracting stuck DVD from laptop

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

Will the drive open at all? If so, and the disks are replaceable, then a pair of needle nosed pliers may do the trick. If the disks are of value to you, a replacement drive doesn't cost that much, it can be pulled open if you can get a g rip on it. This does not guarantee that the disks will not be damaged though. The top disk should come out fairly easily, the bottom disk is going to have the drive spindle in the cemter of it which will not allow it to be removed without the drive being fully open.
