Re: laptop keys problem

I don't know what caused the change.  the function key is on when it isn't depressed.  When you depress it, it's now off.  A lot of laptops are that way.  others can suggest how you can change it to the old way.  Do you get updates from the manufacturer of the laptop?  I really don't think it's a good idea to get such updates and I never do.  Windows updates are one thing and they should be gotten.  But manufacturer updates are, in my opinion, better not gotten.  I suspect a manufacturer's update caused the change, though we'll see what you say about whether you get them.

It works, but it seems to work grudgingly.  I had to do it several times.  Why would I have to do function key alt f4?  It never worked that way before.  And why wouldn’t the function key work for anything else?  Pam.

I hope somebody can help me with this.  At the moment, I am using a wireless keyboard on my Lenovo Thinkpad 550 laptop.  But if I go to use its own keyboard, some of the key commands don’t seem to register.  First of all, the function key is just to the left of the control key.  Any commands that I need to do using the function key don’t register as such.  The only keys that register are the other keys that I press along with it that are not the function key.  For instance, I can’t raise or lower the volume using the function key commands, because the only keys that register are the top keys of the comand.  Also, just recently, I have noticed, I can’t do alt f4 or control f4 and have that work.  If I do alt f4 the only key that will register is the alt, so instead of asking me if I want to shut down, it will put me in the menus, which may or may not have an exit choice.  It doesn’t matter how I press these keys; whether I press them together, or whether I press one and hold it down while I press the other, and how quickly or slowly I do it.  Can anybody tell me what I might be able to do to fix this?  I hope so.  Thanks in advance.  I sent a message to blindtech, and haven’t heard back yet.  Pam.

I sent an email to the manufacturer due to them having the lowest pprice ($70.00 bucks compared to Amazon.com's $99.00 and the manufacturer said they were out and due to some procurement issues they have to redesign it, so they said the next version (version 3) will be coming out in late July.

`Unless I am sadly and seriously mistaken, it's either not possible or very complicated to change what Windows uses for a file exploration application, and if it is possible at all, there's an inherent danger in doing so. If the third-party application crashes or becomes unusable for any reason, the user effectively loses access to Windows since it all hinges on the explorer interface. If you do find a way to make a third-party application replace File Explorer, do it with full image backup in hand in case it cannot be undone and things go badly.

Totally accessible right out of the box with JFW and I would imagine

With f5 you can copy or f6 move. You can copy/move from pane to pane.
The program has more options for searching and the searchresults
will be displayed in a ceperate explorer like window.
It wil l call this a scrab container.

You can also place files in this scrabcontainer window. The files
does not to be from the same folder.
You can copye these files from the scab container.

You can find more information about this program at the link below.
The program is not free. There is also a lite version that is for
free or you can try the pro version for a 14 or 30 days.

I am using it for maybe 10 years now and like it.

And the windows file explorer is also good, but this program has
more options and I can do my work more quickly.

I have made a script that will make it a bit nicer in xplorer2 so if
you will try the program, then I can send you these scripts.

Hi Steve,

Going back to Windows 7, I’ve often gotten property errors when
attempting to copy internal files to external or remote server
sources. I’m not sure I would have even minded these errors, except
it takes a while for the errors to pop up. After I tell the
application to ignore the property issues and apply the rule to all
related files, the transfer process tends to speed up, but when
uploading files to a server, the process is still laborious.
Granted, that is not so much a fault of File Explorer and more an
issue of bandwidth, but in general, I have found the application
far more clunky in Windows 10 than I even did in Windows 7. It
feels unnecessarily slow, so I really appreciate Ann providing me a
copy of FileDir. I can’t wait to give it a shot when I get home later.

Aside from how it looks, I've heard people complain about File and

myself, what's wrong with it. Now I have the opportunity to ask an
actual user who wants an alternative. OK, Joe, what is it about
File Explorer that you don't like? In what situations does it
respond slowly? I've been using Windows since version 1--yes,
since it was invented--and I think Explorer crashed two, maybe
three times, so what errors have you experienced while using it?


OK, let's get down to it then. I found this article very
informative and might try some of these.

Hello

I’m looking for an alternative to File Explorer. Ideally it will
be a bit faster and less prone to errors, but mostly, I would
like for it to be accessible with JAWS. I don’t mind paying for
an alternative if someone can show the application is a good one.
Thank you in advance for any help!

Joe

Hi, Sophos has a free version of their antivirus program. I downloaded
but can't find a way to make the main screen interact with JAWS. Has
anyone else found success using this program?

Thanks,

I have the one from Envision America. I don't remember what it is. It's bigger than something that would fit on a key ring. Pam.

Personally, it is my favorite color identifier because it is
so much smaller than some of the others and does a great job
for basic color identification. If you need a wider range of
colors then it might not be for you but be prepared to spend
a lot more for such a device with a much larger footprint.
It does what I need with basic colors and lighter or darker
shades and it fits right on my key ring which is quite
convenient. HTH.

Has anyone any experience with ethe Rainbow color
identifier?



it is carried by most of the blind equipment companies,
(maxi-aides, speak to me, Amazon.com, etc)



Wondering if it's worth the $100.00 price tag.



Thanks

Re: Rainbow color identifier

Carolyn Arnold
 

I always have had the Colorino, just because it was
available, do not know the difference in it and a Rainbow,
would like to know. I have two, since when one broke, I
ordered a new one, but my fix it man husband fixed it. So
now I have one in a drawer near the clothes dryer for
checking if I need to about a color of something.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Re: Question about Android phones.

Carolyn Arnold
 

Oh, thank you. I feel like this is a step forward to actually get an opinion with a reason behind it. That makes sense about the home button.

I have another question. When I had my tablet, I never was able to make OK Google work. It was real quiet, and we couldn't hear it for TalkBack; this was with Marshmallow. OK Google is something that I really want.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Samsung Galaxy phones. The physical home key adds some advantages.

Crazy question, but I am wondering of all of the Android phones, which is the most blind friendly?
