Hi,

 

Try Accessible Podcatcher:

 

http://www.webbie.org.uk/accessiblepodcatcher/index.htm

 

This podcatcher is easy to use and offers a full library of podcasts, and it is very simple to add any that you do not find in the library.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a podcast player for windows 10?

Re: Backing up and restoring registry settings

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Donald,
 
Below is a lot of information that should answer all your questions, except for the registry questions which Gene answered already.  Read all the way through:
 
From: Carlos
I'm not sure that saving the rules to a text file is possible by any means I am currently aware of.  However, you can backup the rules by exporting the registry key in which they are stored to a .reg file.  You can then merge this .reg file back into the registry if you ever need to restore your rules for any reason.
 
1. Open the "Run" dialog by pressing WindowsKey+R.
2. When the "Run" dialog opens, type the following command as an example to save the Outlook Express rules to a file named OE.reg.
 
regedit /E "D:\Backup\OE.reg" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities
 
This is just an example and will not work unless you already have an existing folder named
 
Backup
 
on your (D) drive.  You should change the path/folder in the above example to a location that you know exists on your system.  Preferably somewhere you can easily find it.  You can also change the file name.
 
If you ever need to restore your Outlook Express rules, just select this file and press Enter.  Windows will ask if you are sure you want to continue.  You should select
"Yes"
If all works as expected, the registry editor will display a message indicating that the keys and values were successfully added to the registry.  The rules should now be restored.  Note, if you are restoring your rules on to a new system or into a fresh installation of Windows, make sure to restore this file before you run Outlook Express for the first time.  When ever Outlook Express is run for the first time, it creates a new identity with a unique ID string.  It uses that ID string as part of the folder path where it stores mailbox files and as part of the registry path where it stores settings for the new identity.  If you run Outlook Express before restoring the rules, the ID string for the new identity and the ID string for the old identity saved in the registry file will not match.  If you restore the rules first, then when you run Outlook Express it will create the new identity and associated path using the ID string which was saved in the .reg file.
Carlos
 
The person that provides the OE hack also has a tool called to restore OE after a Windows update which is explaned below.
 
Windows 10 update Restore tool
Restore OE after Windows 10 update
This tool will restore OE after Windows 10 Upgrade or Major Update
 
How to use:
Run oe_restore.exe and click "Restore OE" Button
 
Emails, Accounts and Address book will be restored.
 
Remember that you may need to switch identities after restore to load the needed identity

Here is another note from the OE people about what files to back up if you would like to go this route.
 
Information about using OE with Windows 10 or updating to Windows 10
 
Windows 10 users must know that automatic updates on Windows 10 removes Outlook Express.
 Every time a Windows 10 pc performs Automatic Updates, Outlook Express will be removed and need to be re-installed.
 More info about software being removed on Win 10 updates:
http://betanews.com/2015/11/24/windows-1...ermission/
 In order to prevent this happen, Automatic updates must be turned off on Windows 10.
 There is a free tool below that turns off Automatic Updates on Windows 10.
 
    
Download Update Disabler
 
Upgrading from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10:
 If you are in previous versions of Windows like Seven, 8 and 8.1 and you will update your PC to Windows 10 you have to reinstall Outlook Express after upgrade.
 
Exclamation Before you do the update to Windows 10 it is strongly suggested to make a backup to your OE Folders and OE Address book.
How to back up Outlook Express items:
 
Locate and backup the Store folder and Address book
 1. Start Outlook Express.
 2. Open tray icon "Settings" menu
 3. On Tray icon settings click "Browse Mail folder" Close Outlook express and copy that folder to a USB drive (Backup)
 4. On Tray icon settings click "Browse Address Book" Close Outlook express and copy the Address book (Wab) file(s) also (Backup)
 5. Open Outlook Express and go to "Tools>Accounts" and click on "Mail" Tab. Select your mail account and click "Export" Button to save account ".iaf" file.
 
 
 When Windows 10 upgrade finished, reinstall Outlook Express and replace the files from backup to same locations. Also you can import previously exported ".iaf" account settings file.
 
 For any other question please contact us at runasxp@...
 
 
 
***
 
I believe he's talking about an icon that is in the system tray for sighted users, or it might be there for blind users as well if selected to show in the system tray.  But, in any event what he's saying is to backup your DBX files & your Address Book somewhere else rather than your operating system drive.  Below are steps on how to get to your DBX files.
 
You will have to unhide files & folders in Tools / Options / View tab for the Local Settings folder to show if you have files & folders hidden.
 
Below is another way to get your .DBX / Outlook Express files;
1. Press ALT + T, for the tools menu, then O, for options.
2. Press Control + Shift + Tab, to jump right to the Maintenance page.
3. Tab to store folder, and spacebar that.
4. Now, tab twice,and Jaws will read the location of your Outlook Express
files.
5. Press the home key, to make sure you are at the beginning of the line, ,
then press Shift + the End key to select the entire line, and copy it to the
clipboard.
6. Press the Escape key twice to get out of the dialogue, and close Outlook
Express, with Alt + F4.
7. Now, open the run dialogue on the start menu, and paste from the clipboard, & press enter.
8. You should now be in the list of .dbx files.
 
Here is the file path to your address book, but this path has my user folder name:
 
"C:\Users\mike9\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Address Book"

Hi Rick,

I’m sorry to hear all the problems you are having with your iPhone.  It can be quite disappointing at times though, and I will be the very first one to admit that, but if you like your iPhone and want to keep it, I wouldn’t give up that fast.  I can give you an email address in which you can join to learn more about your iPhone if you are interested, if so, let me know.  This list I am referring to is just for Apple products, and I’m sure they can help you.

My Wi fi service has really digressed recently, but I guess that is another topic I will need to hash out with them.

my iphone 5s is ready for an upgrade and with all the battery issues and spotty service I have had with my phone, I really would like something more reliable.

To be honest, I am unable to hang up phone calls when I want or use the number pad well enough to navigate telephone menus.

I know others on this list seem to have success with the iphone and I'm not sure if I just need better training or if I should move on to an phone that is easier to navigate for me?

Re: List of accessible cell phones...

Cristóbal
 

This is pretty vague. What do you mean by maintain a decent iPhone? AT&T or any provider really has nothing to do with the maintenance of your individual device. If you're having trouble learning how to use the iPhone, then that's a different matter. As far as accessible phones, you've got the standard options of an iPhone or certain android devices. Maybe some feature phones that offer some sort of audible feedback too. It depends what you consider or need to be accessible.

If an iPhone stops working when an internet failure is experienced, the phone settings are probably set to "Wi-Fi Calling", and this needs to be set back to make the phone use the cellular system. If you only lose internet capabilities on the phone, then this is expected if the phone is connected to Wi-Fi, but the phone should then revert to using it's data plan if a tower is near by.

nothing to do with your computer needing to be restored.

Subject: [TechTalk] System Restore Question Please.

Hi Everyone,
I lost all internet connection last night for some unknown reason.
When I opened IE, I got a message saying this web page can't be
displayed, so I read a little further down, and seen a message saying
no internet connection. I also noticed I wasn't getting any in coming
or outgoing emails. I also noticed I couldn't use my Magic Jack
phone, but this I understand, without internet connection I also lose
my Magic Jack phone, but I also lost service on my iPhone, meaning I
couldn't use my iPhone to make a call, this one has me baffled! I
went in to the search field and network system, and I had the computer
to check for internet connections and other problems. I then got a
response saying: Issues found The connection between your access
point, router, or cable modem and the Internet is brokenThe connection
between your access point, router, or cable modem and the Internet is
broken The network gateway is accessible, but Windows couldn't receive
network traffic from the Internet. Detected Detected I also got a
message saying I should first restart the modom by pressing the button
on the modom, and if that doesn't work I should unplug the modom, and
wait for
10 seconds, and plug it back in, and if that doesn't work, I should
call my ISP. I did try both of these methods, but still no internet connection.
Well, this was late at night, so I couldn't call my ISP which is ATT,
and I was just to tired to have to deal with MS. Well, being as
curious as I am, I thought of system restore, so I started the system
restore on my computer, and after an hour of waiting for that to
complete, I pressed alt plus f4, and I got a message asking me if I
really want to stop the system restore because it wasn't finished
restoring, and I agreed to stop it because I was just to tired and
wanted to go to sleep, and that I did. I got up this morning, and the
internet conection is fine! LOL! My questions are how can I find out if the computer did restore or not?
Why would I lose service on my iPhone?
That's a pretty scarey thing being without internet service and phone
service! I want to be for sure this doesn't happen again.
The only thing I did different was I did download some updates from MS
earlier that same day. Not sure if that had anything to do with it,
and I also noticed JAWS got extremely sluggish just if I opened IE or
went in to Outlook.
I am running Windows 7/home, 64 bit, IE 11, JAWS 2018, Outlook 2010.
Any thoughts, I would appreciate some!

Janet

Re: echo dot second generation

Hi,
Perhaps this will help. Merely pressing the button doesn’t just make it talk.
 
Rather you initiate set up process within its app and when it indicated press and hold button until chime is heard then the unit will be in set up mode and when you then press continue in the app it will advance through the process.  I hope that helps.
Take good care.
Robin

I pushed the button that someone stated to push, but no it didn’t start talking right a way once I plugged it in.

Did it start talking as soon as you plugged it in or when you first turned it on?

I got it set up. I just can’t get the zip code to change, as every time I’m looking for a number here in town, it gives me the next city over.

It does talk to you during setup mode. And if you are using the app rather than the computer you will also have added feedback from voiceover.

Does it talk to you during set up mode? I’m sure it does right?

No not really the app walks you through all of the steps and when it speaks of waiting for various colored lights just give it 20 seconds or so related to said steps and you should be fine. The button you press and hold to get it into setup mode has a dot on it.

Take good care.

Unfortunately, the days of basic phone lines seem to be gone. Twenty years ago, you could get a basic phone line for only 10 or 15 dollars. NOw, they cost in excess of 30 to 40--not including taxes and surcharges. About as much as cell phone service costs. This is just in my area, though. Maybe basic phone lines still exist elsewhere.
While 30 or 40 does not seem like a lot of money, to those on fixed incomes, paying for this line, the cell line, the internet, rent, utilities, and all that other garbage can quickly gobble up the checks they get. What is SSI these days. Something like 600 or 700 dollars? It's extremely difficult to find an apartment less than 400, and ifyou do find one it's a rathole. Then all those other bills.
And while I guess they could choose one or the other--cell phone or landline--most people seem to pick the cell phone. Shiny toys, and all that. I remember something about state medicaid programs being able to provide you with a landline phone, but I don't know if that ever got off the ground. Or if if it ever will, given the current oh so lovely political climate. There was also a motion to make broadband internet a vital utility like gas or electricity, but that probably won't happen either.
So the point is while having boht a landline and a cell sounds great, for a lot of people it's just not possible.

That's why it is a bad idea to give up your land line phone in favor of a cell phone exclusively. A cell phones can die unexpectedly when you most need it for an emergency. Internet service can suddenly go down for no apparent reason. If you are a blind person who lives alone, and you have an emergency, not being able to get help could be a matter of life or death. That's why I will never give up my Verizon land line service . Even though I was recently forced to switch to Spectrum Cable for Internet service because I suddently started experiencing serious connectivity issues with my Verizon DSL Internet service that they wer not able to resolve, I kept my reliable Verizon copper wire land line service. And because my apartment building will never be wired for Verizon FIOS because my landlord has a sweetheart deal with Spectrum, Verizon can't discontinue my land line service. Call ATT this morning to find out whether there is a systemwide problem with their Internet service, if it has not already been restored.
