Re: windows10 upgrade file question

Blaster
 

I would download it, it's pretty small in size. That way if you have
an error or something you won't need to go online and get it to run it
again.

Talkback has a language switcher menu that lets you choose any language espeak supports. You can get into settings directly by pressing f3, or I call it the settings key on the keyboard dock. You do not have to pay over $100 for a good phone. You can get the alcatel a30 for $99. You can read by line with the arrow keys. And if you give someone something in txt file and they asked you to insert pictures into your file, you could not do that with txt or even rtf. .docx is the best file format for inserting pictures, tables with colored text and so on. Sighted people like colored stuff and pictures. Dos is great to play with. And txt or plain text is even good for writing directly in LeTex and other math science codes if you have the  right converter programs. But sighted people expect .docx and pdf files and fancy html 5 on the internet with pictures and colors and so on. Note: there are over 75 to 80 keyboard commands for talkback and even more that android supports. Does android support eSpeak? Answer, yes it does. Does ESpeak support polytonic greek? I do not know. But if it does, then android also supports polytonic greek. I only use English on my tablet. But it is easy to switch keyboard language layouts in settings.

I don't have any issues using XP.  In fact, I'm using it right now.

Wordperfect has an option to save as txt.  So you could do it that way

and no one would know the difference.  If I can't even do a simple

thing like read by line, or get into a screen reader's control panel

with the keyboard, there's a problem!  Also, if I'm going to pay over

$100 for a phone, let alone several hundred dollars, it needs to be

able to read and to write in polytonic Greek.  If it's a cheap tablet

for fun, I wouldn't care.  But then, I couldn't use it for everything

either, because I'm constantly switching between languages.

And that is one reason why I got a tablet with keyboard dock. Because even on android the keyboard lets me browse the web and do things faster than I could on a touch screen. I hardly ever browse the internet on my phone only every now and then. I’d rather do it on my windows computer or tablet with keyboard docking station.

So, it's not true that one can't use a keyboard with a touchscreen device.
Even on iPhones, Bluetooth keyboards can also be deployed. There are

Re: Skype Alternative

Hi all,

I'm happy that you like touch screens. Touch screens are good, but one has to have a certain mind set in order to use them. It may be that in order to use touch screens one needs to have a good visual sense. I don't know. But I can tell you this much. I've tried touch screens and I do not like them at all. I prefer buttons. They are more efficient for me. They allow me to do what I want to do in the least amount of time. My advice is to look at both alternatives.

Re: Conclusion of Wrestling with the Amazon Web Site

Gerald Levy
 

The Amazon toll free helpline is strictly for inquiries about orders placed online. So, for instance, if you have not received your order or your merchandise arrives damaged or you were sent the wrong item, then you can call the helpline for assistance getting a return authorization or refund. Like many other companies, Amazon uses an overseas call center to handle customer inquiries. But their customer service agents, while usually very courteous and helpful, cannot place orders or provide product information for specific items.

Skype Incoming Ringer Muting JAWS

Hi All

 

I’ve started using the Skype Universal Windows App and have found the JAWS is muted by the incoming ringer when ever I get a call and I’m unable to answer it. I’ve tried going into  my sound settings and telling windows to do nothing under the communications settings but still that hasn’t helped.

 

Any advice is much appreciated.

Hmm, for me, Google HangOuts is fully accessible and usable from a blindness
perspective. I DO NOT use it on my computer, just strictly on my phone! I
am one person who wants to DITCH WINDOWS and run only with Android!
However, thus far, the apps I need to use for keeping certain records for my
wee, small business DO NOT have Android equivalents, so, I'm stuck in that
regard.

I don't have any issues using XP. In fact, I'm using it right now.
Wordperfect has an option to save as txt. So you could do it that way
and no one would know the difference. If I can't even do a simple
thing like read by line, or get into a screen reader's control panel
with the keyboard, there's a problem! Also, if I'm going to pay over
$100 for a phone, let alone several hundred dollars, it needs to be
able to read and to write in polytonic Greek. If it's a cheap tablet
for fun, I wouldn't care. But then, I couldn't use it for everything
either, because I'm constantly switching between languages.

Hi Olusegun,

As I said 95% of what I do on my android tablet I do with the keyboard. In fact it is a lot like a brailleNote qwerty. It’s so easy to use. And aquamail for email works great with the keyboard as well. So does hangouts, skype, knfb reader, chrome, firefox, and many other apps.

Ileni, besides my touchscreen phone, I also have a Bluetooth keyboard.

Having pared it with my phone, I am able to successfully send and read text

messages using a Bluetooth keyboard with no hassles of any kind.  Heck, I

can even make phone calls, surf the web, reach out to my contacts on Skype,

read and respond to WhatsApp texts, et al using a Bluetooth keyboard.  The

one I have is a portable trifold that fits snugly into my utility bag or

coat pocket. 

 

So, it's not true that one can't use a keyboard with a touchscreen device.

Even on iPhones, Bluetooth keyboards can also be deployed.  There are

Android tablets with detachable keyboards; and even if the keyboard DOES NOT

come with the tablets, Bluetooth keyboards are reasonably priced and, on the

average, they won't milk the bank to death. 

 

Sincerely,

Olusegun
