Re: OrCam

I got to play with the Orcam this past summer. For a totally blind person, pointed at signs and addresses would be if not a challenge, impossible. Reading text with it is amazing. On the 20th, Woodlake technologies will be demonstrating the latest upgrade to the Orcam. I will report to the group if there has been someway to read signs and addresses.

Yes, from my understanding you need to point at signs, people, traffic signals etc, for it to provide any information. This might prove hit or miss for a totally blind person. I think this is only useful if one has some residual vision left which would make it possible to point at something or someone in the environment.

I just read an interesting article on the OrCam. It sounds great, but
even if I could afford it, I probably couldn't use it, as I would need
to be able to see at least the first line of text so that I could
point to it and make the device start reading.

Has anyone used either the old or the new version of OrCam? If so,
how well does it work? Is it self contained? Can information be
uploaded to a computer or is it only available as you are reading it,
or scanning products or faces? I am providing the link for others
who may be interested.

https://www.orcam.com/en/myeye2/

There was also another product, called Mobil-Eyes, if I remember
correctly. I can't find information on it now, but I know that it
came in both a basic and a deluxe package and involved ocr and other
features in a portable device Has anyone ever used that?

Hi Marie,
 
Good deal, thanks for verifying.  I ordered 2 of them, they're getting hard to find on Amazon.  Amazon doesn't have any in stock, so I had to pay a little more from an outside vendor, but what the hell, at least I know what I'll be getting!  Shipping was free though.

How to log out of Facebook Accounts, please remind me

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I’m trying to delete one of my Facebook accounts, using m.facebook.com, which, as I understand it, means I need to log out, then log back in. Then, before I delete it, I want to download my data from that account, then request it to be deleted, but I don’t see where to log out and in, nor the option to download the information, as the help section directs. If the operating system on my laptop is important to know, I’m using 2014 Mac Book Air with El capitan. Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Back in the Days Before Windows..., A JOKE

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
A little something to lighten y' alls day!
Back in the days before windows....
 
After experiencing difficulties with his computer, a poor, incognizant user called the system maker's technical support line for assistance...
 
Technician: Hello. How can I help you today?
 
Customer: There's smoke coming from the power supply on my computer...
 
Technician: Looks like you need a new power supply...
 
Customer: No, I don't! I just need to change the startup files...
 
Technician: Sir, what you described is a faulty power supply. You need  to replace it...
 
Customer: No way! Someone told me that I just had to change the system startup files to fix the problem! All I need is for you to tell me the  right command...
 
For the next ten minutes, in spite of the technician's efforts to explain the problem and its solution, the customer adamantly insisted that he was  right. So, in frustration, the technician responded...
 
Technician: I'm sorry. We don't normally tell our customers this, but there's an undocumented DOS command that will fix the problem...
 
Customer: I knew it!
 
Technician: Just add the line 'LOAD NOSMOKE.COM' at the end of the CONFIG.SYS file and everything should work fine. Let me know how it  goes...
 
About ten minutes later, the technician received a call back from the customer...
 
Customer: It didn't work. The power supply is still smoking...
 
Technician: Well, what version of DOS are you using?
 
Customer: MS-DOS 6.22...
 
Technician: Well, that's your problem. That version of DOS doesn't include NOSMOKE. You'll need to contact Microsoft and ask them for a patch. Let me know how it all works out...
 
When nearly an hour had passed, the phone rang again...
 
Customer: I need a new power supply...
 
Technician: How did you come to that conclusion?
 
Customer: Well, I called Microsoft and told the technician what you said, and he started asking me questions about the make of the power  supply...
 
Technician: What did he tell you?
 
Customer: He said my power supply isn't compatible with NOSMOKE...

I am using a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 2000.
It has the media buttons along the top above the function keys, volume play/pause etc. It also has all of the keys you referred to.
It didn't come with a mouse, and I think I paid around $30 about three or four years ago.
It is one solid molded piece with a rest for the heels of your hands.
If you need more info let me know. There is more info that has been rubbed off, and I can probably find it in my menus somewhedre if necessary.

Lt. Gen. Mike B, I strongly recommend the Logitech MK270.  It will typically
come with a mouse; as such, itt's a wireless keyboard and mouse combo.  It
satisfies the requirements you listed; uses two AAA batteries.  It also has
eight media keys above the F1-F12 keys.  It comes with a nano-USB plug, just
plug it in and forget it!  It is NOT bluetooth, works with Windows and, if
one uses an OTG cable, it can be used as a keyboard with a smartphone.  In
fact, I do this time and time again. 

About five years ago, my restless legs wandered into Microcenter; I found
about six of this keyboard on their shelf.  I stole three at $19.99 each.  I
use one at my home office, one at my store, and the third one is a backup.
I have not had to change the batteries since I grabbed this keyboard; in
fact, I am typing this message on it!  If you were next door to me, I'll
bring the backup over for you to play with before making a purchase.  But
you're too busy holding down the fort at your garrison, and I am too lazy to
move your tent!!

Anyway, I don't believe you'll regret grabbing the Logitech MK270; me thinks
you may be able to find it on Amazon, though I don't know the price at the
time of writing. 

All the best sire, good luck hunting!!

Sincerely,
Olusegun

Re: Highlighting, creating headings, and creating lists in Word

Quentin Christensen
 

If you really like your plain text but want a bit of formatting, you might be interested in MarkDown.  It's especially useful for creating web text but of course has all kinds of applications: https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/

Essentially it's plain text, but certain combinations, which don't get in the way of reading the text, can have various meanings when passed to a program which knows about Markdown.

For instance:

## This is a heading

**This text is bold**

1. This is the first numbered list item
2. This is the second numbered list item.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Terry,

 

It depends on what you do with the text file.

 

If you press enter on it to open it from file explorer for instance, it will open in NotePad by default.  Notepad is a basic text editor which means you can save the actual text - letters, numbers, spaces, dollar signs etc, but no formatting (so no headings, no bold, underline, different fonts etc).  Selecting text still works exactly as I described, and you can still use the characters I suggested to denote lists in a plain text file, it's just that you will need to do that for every list item.

 

If you specifically open your text file in Word, then you can use all those features I mentioned and add headings etc to your text, however, you will need to then save the file as a Word document in order to keep that formatting.  (Note, you can save in some other formats like RTF which will also keep much Word formatting - when you save in a format other than a Word document, Word will warn you about what may be lost).

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi Nancy,

 

In short:

Highlighting: Hold down SHIFT and use the regular navigation keys (arrows, home, end, control+arrows etc) to move through your document.  As you move, the text will be selected.  If you are using NVDA, press NVDA+shift+up arrow (or in laptop keyboar layout use NVDA+shift+s) to read the selection.

 

Creating headings: Press control+alt+1 to make the current line heading 1, control+alt+2 for heading 2 and control+alt+3 for heading level 3.   After you type the line, when you press enter, the next line will be normal.  Otherwise, press control+shift+n to revert to normal text.

 

Lists: Press asterisk then a space to start a bulleted list.  a hyphen and a space will start a list with dashes or type 1 then a full stop and a space to start a numbered list. As you press enter, a new bullet will be created (or the next number) on the following line, ready to type the next item.  Press ENTER twice to finish the list.

 

If you found that useful, you may be interested in our Microsoft Word for NVDA training material, which is arguably the most comprehensive guide to using Word with a keyboard (and NVDA) there is: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

 

Kind regards

Re: Wireless Keyboard Recommendations?

Dane
 

Mike,
 
I am using a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 2000.
It has the media buttons along the top above the function keys, volume play/pause etc. It also has all of the keys you referred to.
It didn't come with a mouse, and I think I paid around $30 about three or four years ago.
It is one solid molded piece with a rest for the heels of your hands.
If you need more info let me know. There is more info that has been rubbed off, and I can probably find it in my menus somewhedre if necessary.

Hi Clifford,
 
If & when you're at home, would you please find out the exact model number, if possible?  I did a search on Amazon for a Microsoft 5000 wireless keyboard, & the results weren't anything near what you mentioned.  Thank you very much for any help & feedback you can provide.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I have a Microsoft keyboard that meets all of these requirements.  It isn’t the lightest or thinnest, but it’s been very reliable.  I think it’s the 5000 model, but it’s at home and I’m not.  It was around $30 on Amazon when I bought it a couple years ago.

Hi All,

 

I would like to get a wireless keyboard that's old school per say.  Y'all know, 102 / 104 keys, QWERTY style, 1 with 2 Start menu / Windows keys, 2 alt keys, an applications / context menu key, & a full NumPad.  I know I'm asking for a lot, but if any of y'all know of such an animal, would you please let me know the brand & model number?  All help will be greatly appreciated!  Thank y'all mooy moocho.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Re: Highlighting, creating headings, and creating lists in Word

Not the news I was hoping for, but thanks. Word, here I come. Heh heh heh. Thanks.

Terry,

 

It depends on what you do with the text file.

 

If you press enter on it to open it from file explorer for instance, it will open in NotePad by default.  Notepad is a basic text editor which means you can save the actual text - letters, numbers, spaces, dollar signs etc, but no formatting (so no headings, no bold, underline, different fonts etc).  Selecting text still works exactly as I described, and you can still use the characters I suggested to denote lists in a plain text file, it's just that you will need to do that for every list item.

 

If you specifically open your text file in Word, then you can use all those features I mentioned and add headings etc to your text, however, you will need to then save the file as a Word document in order to keep that formatting.  (Note, you can save in some other formats like RTF which will also keep much Word formatting - when you save in a format other than a Word document, Word will warn you about what may be lost).

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi Nancy,

 

In short:

Highlighting: Hold down SHIFT and use the regular navigation keys (arrows, home, end, control+arrows etc) to move through your document.  As you move, the text will be selected.  If you are using NVDA, press NVDA+shift+up arrow (or in laptop keyboar layout use NVDA+shift+s) to read the selection.

 

Creating headings: Press control+alt+1 to make the current line heading 1, control+alt+2 for heading 2 and control+alt+3 for heading level 3.   After you type the line, when you press enter, the next line will be normal.  Otherwise, press control+shift+n to revert to normal text.

 

Lists: Press asterisk then a space to start a bulleted list.  a hyphen and a space will start a list with dashes or type 1 then a full stop and a space to start a numbered list. As you press enter, a new bullet will be created (or the next number) on the following line, ready to type the next item.  Press ENTER twice to finish the list.

 

If you found that useful, you may be interested in our Microsoft Word for NVDA training material, which is arguably the most comprehensive guide to using Word with a keyboard (and NVDA) there is: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: Wireless Keyboard Recommendations?

Mike,
I have the Microsoft wireless (rf not bt) and I like it so much I bought a spare so if this one dies I will have a backup. It has everything you listed in your message, is comfortable to use, and has a nice tactile feel to it. Comes with the wireless mouse which I keep handy just in case a sighted person is ever allowed contact with my PC.

Re: Wireless Keyboard Recommendations?

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Lt. Gen. Mike B, I strongly recommend the Logitech MK270. It will typically
come with a mouse; as such, itt's a wireless keyboard and mouse combo. It
satisfies the requirements you listed; uses two AAA batteries. It also has
eight media keys above the F1-F12 keys. It comes with a nano-USB plug, just
plug it in and forget it! It is NOT bluetooth, works with Windows and, if
one uses an OTG cable, it can be used as a keyboard with a smartphone. In
fact, I do this time and time again.

About five years ago, my restless legs wandered into Microcenter; I found
about six of this keyboard on their shelf. I stole three at $19.99 each. I
use one at my home office, one at my store, and the third one is a backup.
I have not had to change the batteries since I grabbed this keyboard; in
fact, I am typing this message on it! If you were next door to me, I'll
bring the backup over for you to play with before making a purchase. But
you're too busy holding down the fort at your garrison, and I am too lazy to
move your tent!!

Anyway, I don't believe you'll regret grabbing the Logitech MK270; me thinks
you may be able to find it on Amazon, though I don't know the price at the
time of writing.

All the best sire, good luck hunting!!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

Hi Jeffrey,
 
If possible, could you provide the model number of the keyboard you have?  Logitech makes a great many keyboards, &  it would be nice to have a model number, if possible.  Thank you very much for your help.

Mike,

I had just such a keyboard.  It was made by Logitech and came with a wireless mouse.  After a few weeks it failed to function.  I sent it back and  the replacement also failed in short order.  I suspect, however, that the problem was with my new laptop.  All of the ports were funky, e.g. it took half an hour to boot up with my scanner connected.  One night I got a ms download and all my problems were solved.
