having trouble with FileZilla.

Jim Rawls
 

Hi all, I apologize for the length of this email, but I’m at my wits end here.

I use FileZilla to send my show to the global voice web site. All of a sudden, it will not connect to the site so that I can upload my show. I see the file I wish to upload. And when a tab over, after selecting the file I wish to upload, I should see a message that says remote site. Instead, I see something that says, panel, zero items. So somehow I can’t connect tieh the globalvoice.info web site. If anyone uses FileZilla, can they give me any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Thanks for your help in advance. Jim


win10 update crash

David Mehler
 

Hello,

I've got a machine well it's an owner of same that is driving me insane.

It's a win10 1607 box that is failing it's 1709 update. The machine
using update assistant successfully downloads, verifies, and begins
installation. On the first reboot installation continues, then stops
at between 20 and 25% changes are reverted and the amachine reboots
back in to win10.

The update obviously fails. It is now to the point where the update
comes daily and is not stopped, this is one reason why I don't like
the new win10 update plan if there's an issue you face it repeatedly
and can not defer.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

This machine is not running out of storage space, has a 1 tb drive.

It's running a UEFI setup, so booting by thumb drive is not doable.
Unless someone knows if a gigabyte motherboard ga-990fx has a boot
menu and where the usb option is.

I'd appreciate any help, some urgency!

Thanks.
Dave.

Hello:

I also suggest that he check www.applevis.com if he is not aware of

Hi.
it's not quite like that.
It will cut off in the middle of a sentence for example. It just randomly happens whenever, not just when it stops speaking for a while.

Re: using jaws 17 and windows 7/need help installing adobe flash

I don't know why you are getting the message on the site since Flashh is already installed unless JAVA isn't turned on.  It probably is but to make sure, try the following:
Go to
and see if you get a message about JAVA script near the bottom of the page.  If you search for java from the top of the page, you'll see the message quickly and conveniently if its there.  If you do, JAVA is off.  If you don't, its on.

I have googled this, and one response was that maybe Java isn't enabled and some sites think flash isn't installed and it has something to do with java. Not really sure about how to work with Java and not real sure this would cause a site not to see flash but maybe there's a connection and I need to do something with Java? I wish Alternative flash was enough to keep these sites happy, and if another way to download flash instead of from their site can be done please share.

Browsers are generally not automatically allowing Flash content to run.  I don't recall  what browser you are using, but if you are running Firefox or Chrome, you may have to allow flash to be run before you can do whatever the site does.  I suspect the site interprets Flash not running as meaning it isn't installed.  If you tell us what browser you are using, someone can probably tell you how to allow Flash when the browser asks.  I've had very little experience with this but I suspect you'll have to reload the site after allowing Flash.  You can use f5.

I installed the pluto tv app on windows10 from the pluto tv website. But I cannot get channels to play. What am I doing wrong? Or should I just get rid of the application and use the google chrome extension instead? I also have an android phone and tablet and an apple tv box. I’d like to watch it on my computer also.

Re: I Need Your Explanation concerning Talking Bathroom Scales:

Carolyn Arnold
 

I weigh before going to the doctor, last thing before leaving, and my scales are with the doctor. I forget where they came from, since I've had them for about ten or eleven years. They cost $28.00. I found them on Amazon and got my girlfriend's husband to order them for me, because I was even way less savvy with the computer than I am now - thought it was a big deal that I could find them then.

Cordially,

I've noticed this same difference is present in blood glucose readings between two different units even from the same blood sample. I called the manufacturer of one and asked why there was something like a 13 point reading difference, and they got peeved that I tried to compare two different units. I therefore just do exactly what I said, consider each day's readings as an increase or decrease from the previous day.

Gary Ray here.

Talking bathroom scales are not all created equal.

If one chooses to get a set of these scales, it is a good idea to
compare the weight you get to a medical set of scales to determine if
they read properly. If they are close, then that is good, if not it
is a good idea to make note of how far off the talking scales are so
one has a pretty good idea of what the actual weight is. This way, one
would know how much to add or subtract to get a proper weight. I do
not know if there are any talking scales that can be adjusted to fix this particular problem.

Talking bathroom scales are used for people to find out how much they
weigh. both sighted and non-sighted use them for various reasons like
perhaps someone's body circumference interferes with their ability to
see the displayed weight, etc. If you can't see the display for
whatever reason or would just appreciate the convenience of hearing it
instead of seeing it and would like to keep track of your body weight
then perhaps you could use one.

If you're not interested in knowing your body weight or have other
ways to find out, then it wouldn't be necessary for you.

I see nothing wrong with the technical discussion. Laz answered all
of his questions. Gary Ray explained a few extra things that one
should consider when purchasing a scale. Whether most people would
need such a high degree of accuracy is beside the point. It's still
good to know about these differences.

Talking bathroom scales are not all created equal.

If one chooses to get a set of these scales, it is a good idea to compare the weight you get to a medical set of scales to determine if they read properly. If they are close, then that is good, if not it is a good idea to make note of how far off the talking scales are so one has a pretty good idea of what the actual weight is. This way, one would know how much to add or subtract to get a proper weight. I do not know if there are any talking scales that can be adjusted to fix this particular problem.

Cheers!

Talking bathroom scales are used for people to find out how much they weigh. both sighted and non-sighted use them for various reasons like perhaps someone's body circumference interferes with their ability to see the displayed weight, etc. If you can't see the display for whatever reason or would just appreciate the convenience of hearing it instead of seeing it and would like to keep track of your body weight then perhaps you could use one.

If you're not interested in knowing your body weight or have other ways to find out, then it wouldn't be necessary for you.

The problem is that even different doctor' scales don't always read the same as each other. Pam.

Re: using jaws 17 and windows 7/need help installing adobe flash

Gene and all, I am using Internet Explorer 11 and the message isn't a will you allow message, which I so wish it was. It's actually a "download and install flash player" and a download link is given. I have googled this, and one response was that maybe Java isn't enabled and some sites think flash isn't installed and it has something to do with java. Not really sure about how to work with Java and not real sure this would cause a site not to see flash but maybe there's a connection and I need to do something with Java? I wish Alternative flash was enough to keep these sites happy, and if another way to download flash instead of from their site can be done please share.

Browsers are generally not automatically allowing Flash content to run.  I don't recall  what browser you are using, but if you are running Firefox or Chrome, you may have to allow flash to be run before you can do whatever the site does.  I suspect the site interprets Flash not running as meaning it isn't installed.  If you tell us what browser you are using, someone can probably tell you how to allow Flash when the browser asks.  I've had very little experience with this but I suspect you'll have to reload the site after allowing Flash.  You can use f5.

I do think I have the latest Flash version, but I am getting these "the latest version of Adobe Flash needs to be installed to play these files." messages. One place I get these messages is Hulu. I have installed Alternative Flash Player, but I don't think that's what some of these cites want. When the "download and install" option is offered for downloading Flash Player update, I try downloading it but it doesn't seem to be in or sites wouldn't complain about it. What do some Jaws users do to install this and make sure it is in? Or have you had trouble, having installed the player, getting sites to recognize that you already have the thing?
 
Thanks for any help.
