Most of these digital devices these days do not permit own radio recordings. However, you could use another quality recording device to do it.

Re: IPhone stuff including Skype

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

As far as I know, it should take you to the screen with either the recent chats or to the contacts screen once you've entered your username and password. It's been a bit since I had to enter mine into skype on my phone though. In the later versions of skype for IOS, you can double tap the my info tab at the bottom right of the display, which should take you to a screen that shows information about your account. There is a button or link here that will allow you to change your profile information, along with an associated email address and your password too. The button that takes you to the profile settings area is called, my account. The next page has several different areas, but it should be pretty self explanatory. If you need any help though, let me know.
Take care.

Subject: [TechTalk] Some interesting information about a mobility device called buzz clip

I received this from another list and I found it interesting and I thought maybe some of you would find it interesting.

Christina

Hi Everyone,

We are a small start-up company based in Toronto called iMerciv Inc. and we wanted to let people know about the development of our new product that caters to the orientation and mobility needs of those living with vision loss. The device has been street tested and very well received by blind and low vision communities in Canada hence our excitement to let  you know about it. The newly launched BuzzClip is a small wearable device that helps those living with vision loss with day to day traveling by detecting obstacles in one’s immediate environment and then notifying the wearer of these obstacles through intuitive vibrations. It uses ultrasound to detect any obstacle it is pointing at and vibrates faster and stronger as the obstacle/person gets closer.

The BuzzClip is an electronic device that offers upper body protection that is sometimes missed by a guide dog or cane. It is not meant to be a replacement for the cane or a guide dog rather it is supposed to work in tandem with traditional aids to provide the user more information on their surroundings, particularly at head level. The BuzzClip can be easily attached to many forms of clothing (i.e it can be clipped on a lapel of a winter jacket, on a collar, sleeves (long or short) and the lining of one’s belt) making it a highly versatile and useful device at an affordable price.

There have indeed been many proximity detectors that came out over the years. And the earlier ones definitely caused a lot of frustration as the functionality and reliability were far from advertised. But we have been working closely and testing our prototypes every step of the way with visually impaired testers in Canada, the U.S and India. Although we do use the same ultrasonic technology, the technology has become much more refined over the years. Also The Buzzclip is not just another ultrasonic proximity detector. The fact that it is wearable and hands free makes it applicable in a lot more use cases. Some of our testers have been using it in line ups at coffee shops to determine when the line is moving forward. Some of them have been using it as a way finder in tight spaces or crowded rooms by walking in the directions where the Buzzclip doesn't detect anything. Some have been using it as security by attaching it behind them, they would know someone is sneaking up on them if the Buzzclip detects something coming towards them and they don't hear anything. Some have found it useful as they would be able to tell if the person they are conversing with got up to get water and when they get back.
It provides extra information on one's surroundings passively and users are constantly finding new ways to use this extra information.

The BuzzClip is currently available to pre-order on a crowdfunding platform ‘Indiegogo’ for the next 25 days and is being offered at a discounted price of $129 USD
After this campaign ends on November 22nd, the final batch of BuzzClips will be manufactured and shipped to our supporters by March of 2016.
More information/videos on our product can be found here:
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-buzzclip-wearable-ultrasound-for-the-blind/x/11673979#/
The link above is our Indiegogo page address and Indiegogo is one of the largest Crowdfunding website in the world that is based in the United States just like Kickstarter.

A lot of effort was put into optimizing the user experience of the device. Limiting it to 1m and 2m modes reduces false positives and only provides vibratory feedback if there are obstacles or people in your path or coming directly at you. The device goes to sleep if you are at a fixed distance for over a few seconds so that it doesn't constantly vibrate if you are talking to someone for example. It reactivates again if the distance changes for more than 10 cm. So once it is switched on, the user can simply carry on their usual routine without the need to operate the device constantly. The battery will last for a full days use (10 hours) on a single charge and it is rechargeable through a Micro-USB cable. (just like android phones)

Aside from the useability, a lot of thought was put into the design and aesthetics as well. The Buzzclip is slightly larger than a lighter. The enclosure is made entirely of aluminum so that it is water resistant and durable and also very aesthetically pleasing. The device consists of 3 main sections, a sensor arm that is circular and smaller than the size of an iPod nano in terms of area. It is connected to the battery enclosure by a metallic spring clip that is similar to the ones on pocket knives and multi-tools. The main body is rectangular with rounded edges and is roughly the size of a lighter. The micro-USB charging port is on the side of the main body. On the back of the main body is the vibration motor arm which is spring-loaded for when one is wearing loose clothing. The entire unit has a finish that is similar to the look and feel of the Apple TV remote. When it is worn, the only part that will be exposed is the circular sensor arm.

For reference, our press release is on yahoo finance if you search "the buzzclip" on yahoo finance and we have been featured on Eyes on Mobility, blind.tech, cool wearable, tech vibes, Cool Blind Tech and CNET. I won't attach links here, but you can find us on those websites if you need reassurance. The Founders names are Bin Liu and Arjun Mali and you can reach them +1 (647) 919 6565 for Bin and +1 (647) 919 9269 for Arjun.

Re: accessing your ringtone apps, please explain why this isn't possible for android users?

Carolyn Arnold
 

I have an iPhone, glad that I got it, glad I have had the experience. However, in a few months, my contract will be completed. I am interested in finding a good and accessible feature phone. Like someone said, there are many of us, and we are individuals, so what is satisfactory to one might not be to another. Isn't it good that we have these choices? I really am looking forward to getting a phone that has more strength in being a phone, and, hay, clock and calendar will be very welcome too.

someone who just uses "u" in place of you or "ur" in place of the

there are always those people out there that will "bring down the

Well said and I agree. For most software developers, techniques for
improving accessibility have to be learned. Most programmers are not
even
aware that accessibility is an issue until it is pointed out. Remember
that blind users are usually a minority. Presenting the problem in a
non-confrontational manner is much more likely to encourage cooperation.
The fact is that unless some kind of public service is being offered,
generally there is no legal requirement that developers make their
software more accessible.

Hi Beth,
Firstly I'd like to laud you for the detailed and specific nature of
your
report to this app developer. I've found over the years that when
reporting problems or difficulties the more detailed information one can
give the better and easier it makes the job of those not only responding
to the report but the developers charged with addressing the problems as
well.
there are a few things that concern me about your report and I mean no
disrespect in pointing them out. Rather perhaps going forward in the
future fine-tuning these few things might enhance your ability to
achieve
the desired result.
Chiefly there are phrases that convey to me as a reader a
confrontational
tone that perhaps doesn't necessarily need to be present. I'm proceeding
on the assumption that this communication I read below is the first I.E.
the initial message starting this dialog with the maker of this app.
I myself always find it helpful to start dialogs with a more
conciliatory
or friendly tone since I might be communicating with an app developer
who
has no knowledge that blind an visually impaired people are even using
devices that can run their apps let alone their apps themselves. People
can't be held accountable for something they don't yet know I say. Once
they do that's a different story.
So for example when I read" "This is unacceptable because I am totally
blind and use
Talkback to navigate around Android menus, and no way will a
sighted person do so for me. No way.
2. 2. You have never bothered to label the buttons that tell a
blind person, through Talkback of course, to "play" or
"action" or act upon a particular ringtone."
I feel a bit of discomfort since while it is inconvenient that this app
has some accessibility issues at present stating that this is
unacceptable
seems unnecessarily confrontational for an initial message starting a
dialog. Perhaps another way to put it might be this is very inconvenient
as it makes your app impossible for blind and visually impaired users to
interact with at this time.
Further more you say "You never bothered" to label buttons again that
assumes that the developers were aware that there was a need to do this
or
that it could even be done. Again perhaps rephrasing it to say I've
noted
that these buttons in question have never been labeled so that their
verbal functions are spoken and rectifying this would not only be
greatly
helpful but could increase the usability of your app by those who are
blind and visually impaired which could result in increased sales of the
paid version of your app.
There is something to be said for the phrase you catch more flies with
honey than vinegar; and it's been my experience when engaging in
advocacy
for myself as a blind person as well as for others that a more congenial
approach at least initially often gains more ground than approaching
with
a heavy hand and a confrontational attitude. It's true that there many
battles we face in this life but not every one must start out as though
we're at war. It really isn't always us against the world.
I hope my thoughts will be taken in the spirit in which they are offered
as a means to help. If I'm off base or if the moderator feels that my
post
is in error I do apologize in advance.
thanks all for taking the time to thoughtfully read.

Hello, all.
To whoever this may concern, this is an important message so
please read with caution and caring as this message contains
resources you may find helpful.
I have been using your app forever. Since I have an Android
lollipop device particularly Motorola, I have had almost no
problems with your apps, that is, until I opened the latest
update and found the following errors of accessibility with your
apps:
1. Your Android app has almost no way for me to identify the
proper ringtone I would like to view or download.Instead of the
tag containing the name and artist of the tone, Talkback, the
Google inscribed screen reader, simply says, "ringtone
underscore card" to all search results, my ringtone downloads,
etc. This is unacceptable because I am totally blind and use
Talkback to navigate around Android menus, and no way will a
sighted person do so for me. No way.
2. 2. You have never bothered to label the buttons that tell a
blind person, through Talkback of course, to "play" or
"action" or act upon a particular ringtone. Instead, the
buttons are unlabeled and that is quite annoying, unacceptable as
well.
3. 3. I see no more errors. But here are the solutions I
propose:
4. 1. Label all buttons. This includes ringtone specific buttons
that tell me to "play ringtones" or you could specify the
button that says you can specify a ringtone as per contacts or
alarms.
5. 2. Fix the accessibility of identification of all ringtones,
thereby labeling all your collections and so on not only as
"ringtone underscore card" but as the name of the ringtone
itself. Please also label all collections properly. Example:
"Katie Perry Collection" instead of just "collection" all
over the place. Please do not make up any excuses. The android
community wil be a bit more welcoming to your changes, but we the
blind will stop using your services if you do not comply with
what we need even if we are a "little bitty market" as some may
say.
6. Here are some resources specific to get you started on your
quest to make your entire platform accessible.Especially for
Android users.
7. First, there is the National Federation of the Blind, the
consumer group that touts itself as the oldest and largest
organization of "the blind speaking for themselves." We have
long held a belief that access to us is access for everybody.
8. www.nfb.orgg
9. The American Council of the Blind is another consumer group
that has done pretty much the same thing as the previous
organization here. Their website:
10. www.acb.org
11. Questions about particulars and web access and apps you can
go to this site: Deque Systems, a company training companies on
site access:
12. www.deque.comAlso, you can google "android blind users"
and find a myriad of blind consumers and so on who use Android,
and the good boys at Serotech Corporation are awesome at talking
about Android. Please feel free to look at these things and get
back to me with a stable, and yes, accessible update to your app
for Android. If not,all of us who are blind may consider stopping
your premium services. Oh well, it's a dollar I don't need to
spend on bad services and badly labeld application platforms. If
you desperately want your dollars spent with you, then please do
as we ask and make all forms of this application usable by blind
people.

Use save as in the e-mail program to save the message as a file outside of the program.  It's up to you whether you save them as text files or as eml files but the point is that if you save them as individual files it doesn't matter what subject line the messages have.  Give the files names as you save them just as you name any file when you use save as. 
 
You can organize the files any way you like, all in one folder, or in different folders for different subjects or in one main folder with different subfolders for different subjects.

well, with android, its very easy to add rintones to your device. if
you have an sd card, simply create a folder on it named ringtones and
one named notifications and place the tones there. the device will
see them automatically. and i create most of my tones my self.

HI, listers.
So it starts with Spreaker and now, I'm seeing Audiko broke the
title and identification abilities of its Ringtone app. Somebody
tell me if this is its war on blindness? I only see a "ringtone
underscore card" thing on it instead of what the ringtone is. I
demand an answer. Well, I don't, but I'm on the prowl for some
answers as to why this stuff is happening? My friend Jessie is
always hunting for broken access to stuff, but I'm downright
outraged! Audiko Ringtones used to be my go-to source for
ringtones. Now what? For Android users,there is little choice, so
what do I do now!?!?
I'm going to do the same thing I did to Spreaker to the Audiko
support team, and I'll tell them how we use their products.
Ugh.

password vault for my iPhone

Matt
 

Hi, would like to find a password vault to have on my iPhone . I would like it to use the finger print reader. By all means it needs to be accessible and user friendly. Free if possible but would go for a paid one if it was reasonable price.  Any suggestions?

 

 

Thanks,

Matt.from.florida@...

 

 

 


Re: PC Sometimes Won't Shut DownCompletely

Pablo Morales
 

Hi Gene and all,
Yesterday at night I discovered that the bum dots that I place on my tablet, are the most smaller in the market, even though the space between the screen and the keyboard is almost nothing. So I removed the bum dots, and now I don't have the shutting down problem. I don't know if one of the keys where the bum dots were placed is who was stopping the shut down in my tablet, but looks like the problem is gone..

Hi Gene,
Yes, I think that the problem could be other thing, because on the
screen just appears a dialog saying shutting down, is not buttons, or
any thing to click. Jaws is not working in this point, and it is
something that some times happen, my wife is who has seen this issues.
I have no idea what could be the problem, but it just happen 2 times,
the bad part of the story is that I have only around 1 week with this
dell venue 11 pro tablet.

Did you see the previous messages in the thread about one command that will
force a shutdown in some cases? this thread raises the question of how to
know that a computer has shut down in the first place. If the four hours of
unnecessary running had occurred on battery power it could be a real
problem. In a computer with a cd drive, it's easy enough to check to see if
a computer has shut down but what about the computers that don't have one
and are also very quiet such as a laptop may be or a tablet?

So what is the solution in those cases?

I have seen situations like that in my tablet, I shut it down, and after 4
hours, my wife finds my tablet saying, shutting down.

It is not that there are programs running after Windows shuts down. The
point is that when a process/application hangs in memory and will not close,
Windows is not able to complete the shutdown procedure. Windows may
successfully close down most applications including your screen reader, but
a single application which will not close can halt the shutdown process.
Even Alt F will not always work in such cases.

What programs would still be running after windows shuts down? Because
that’s what we have talked about: windows and the screenreader both shutting
down, but the computer still running. Pam.

No. Pressing and holding the power button simply turns off power to the
computer. The forced shutdown command will try to force programs to close
and then shut down windows in a proper shutdown. Holding the power button
causes an improper shutdown.



I haven't used the forced shutdown command but I'm explaining what a
forced shutdown is and what the command should do by definition.

Is pressing Alt-F to force a shut down the same as pressing and holding
the power button?

Sometimes, a program does not shut down thus hanging the whole shutdown
process. That program is rarely the screen reader. So, the screen reader
shuts down and then a message appears saying that windows is waiting on one
or more background programs to close. We don’t get the message because the
screen reader has already shut down. There is a button in that dialog
labeled force shutdown. The accelerator key for that button is alt f.

If you have waited a decent interval, say, a minute or minute and a half
and the computer has not shut down, try pressing alt f to force an
unresponsive program or process to shut down. It doesn’t always work but it
does work a surprisingly large number of times.



Hth,

George

I can’t explain it, but I can tell you that this has happened to both my
desktop computers I have had that had versions of windows on them. I
mention that because my other desktop that had dos on it didn’t have a way
to shut it off automatically like that. I had to flip a switch. But both
computers that had shut off as a part of the shut down, it sometimes does
that, where it exits windows and just sits there on. Occasionally, I have
walked away and not paid attention, assuming that it has shut all the way
off, and come back later, only to find out that it is still on. Hopefully,
somebody can enlighten us both. Pam.

Most of the time, when I press Alt-F4 from the desktop of my Windows 7 PC
and click okay on the shut down option, it will exit Windows and shut down
normally and the power will shut off. But once in a while, when I click on
okay for the shut down option, I hear the exit Windows sound, but the power
does not shut off. The internal cooling fan continues to run, and the tray
for the DVD/CD drive opens and closes when I press the eject button, which
means that although the PC has exited Windows, the power remains on. When
this happens, I have to press and hold the power button on the front panel
for a few seconds to insure that the PC completely shuts down and the power
shuts off. Can anyone explain why my PC will occasionally refuse to shut
down completely when I activate the shut down option? Thanks.
