Re: GMail question

Vlad Dragomir
 

Hello,

This is because Gmail is very sensitive to location changes. As soon as it detects that someone is far away from home, it blocks all requests and sends a warning message to the registered recovery address. usually, it's enough to connect to gmail with your browser and tell it that yes, the one who attempted to fetch emails a few minutes ago was indeed you, the owner of that account. I was confused as well the first time this happened to me, now I expect it each time I travel.

I hope this explanation helps you a bit.

Best,

Vlad.


Ring Tones and ITunes

Roger Khouri <roger@...>
 

Hey folks, just wanted to see if anyof you have used ITunes on Windows recently.  I have made a ring tone and I'd like to upload it to my phone using ITunes. I haven't done this for a few years and ITunes looks quite different and not so straight forward.  I had heard a while ago that some blind windows users have an accessible version of ITunes made by a third party not Apple.  Does anyone have a lead on that? Thanks.

GMail question

Vicki W
 

I have a question concerning my GMail when traveling.
 
When I am at home, I have no problem receiving my Comcast or GMail. However, When I travel, even though the settings are exactly the same, I cannot receive my GMail on any wifi connection. Comcast works fine.
 
Does anyone know why this would be and how I can correct it? It doesn't matter if I am in a home away from home or a hotel.
 
Thanks.

Editing a talking WinPe Image without losing boot sectors

Bachir Benanou <ben_bach@...>
 

Hi folks,

I'd like to update some programs on a talking WinPe Image.

Because it is an Iso file, I'm concerned about losing boot sectors when rebuilding the Iso file.

I have two questions:

1. Can I rebuild the Iso file after updating, say, NVDA, without losing boot upon iso recompile.

2. What is managing the boot sectors?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Re: helping somebody with Dropbox

Bachir Benanou <ben_bach@...>
 

    Hello and greetings from France!

Thanks for your message.

I think that changing the password and reinstalling DropBox is a possibility.

First, uninstall Dropbox from Control Pannel then restart if asked. Then go to www.ninite.com and check the box corresponding to Dropbox to generate a ninite Installer.

- On the Ninite Website, locate the Get your Ninite button and activate it to download the installer to use later.

- Go to www.dropbox.com and locate the connect link.

- Activate the connect link and type the e-mail address your friend first used to create her DropBox account.
- Click on the link (Forgotten password)
- A link will be sent to the mail address allowing a new password to be created.
I hope this helps.
Please, repost if you need futher cues.

My inclination is to have her uninstall Dropbox, sign in on the web, and reinstall the app.  I can’t see any way, from within the app, to connect to her account.

What is Apple's 3D Touch and how does it work?
14 June 2017
Apple
What is Apple's 3D Touch and how does it work?
Apple's latest iPhones, from the iPhone 6S onwards excluding
the iPhone SE, feature a new type of screen. They not only
have different glass to older models, but they offer new
interactive levels too thanks to a technology called 3D
Touch.
The iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7
Plus recognise force as well as gestures in order to offer
more accurate haptic feedback. This in turn results in apps
being more accessible thanks to variations in pressure
offering previews, quick swiping and more. Press and hold
Facebook and you'll get the option of searching, writing a
post, uploading a photo or video, or taking a photo or
video. Some apps offer more options than others in the pop
up menu, including the option to add a widget to the screen
to the left of the home screen.
All of Apple's native apps support 3D Touch but there are
plenty of others too so it's worth having a play.
You can also use 3D Touch to jump between apps rather than
double tapping the home button. Apply a little but of
pressure to the screen edge and you can swipe across between
apps.
list of 1 items
. Best 3D Touch apps for Apple iPhone
Peek and pop
Another of the features within 3D Touch is called "Peek and
Pop", which allows for exactly what it suggests: peeking at
selected notifications through a pop up screen without
needing to open the specific app.
Pressing and holding notifications offers a number of
options depending on the which app the notification came
from. For example, if a tweet, you'll be able to retweet or
like it, while an iMessage will allow you to read the
message in a pop up screen and reply.
This feature explains what features Apple's 3D Touch offers
and how does the technology works.
Quick access to apps from home screen
One of the great things about 3D Touch, if you can get used
to using it, is quicker access to various app actions from
the home screen. Not all apps offer compatibility with 3D
Touch, but there are more on board now than when 3D Touch
first appeared. Pressing and holding a compatible app's icon
on home screen will pull up a menu, allowing you to perform
various tasks without having to open up the app first. For
example, pressing and holding the camera app will allow
you launch the selfie camera rather than main snapper, while
Maps will offer the option to mark your destination or send
your location.

Hi,
I can't help but laugh at you and Pam when you both refer to
these big phones! Smile! Have you seen the iPhone SE? that
came out I think in 2016 or 2017? From what I have been
hearing that is pretty much a hot seller!
Those phones are supposed to be the same size as the 5S, or
pretty close.
Just remember all the iPhones that are the plus ones and
maybe the s as well, are always going to be larger, and a
lot of people love the larger screens. From what I've heard
that is one of the main reasons Apple brought out the 5S
phones because a lot of people wanted them the size of the
5S.
As far as myself, I don't particularly like the larger
phones, as I have quite small hands and fingers, so I might
have to use both hands to hold a larger phone like when I
held an iPhone 7plus, and if I had to talk on it, it would
nearly cover half my face! The iPhone 6 that I currently
have is fine for me. I will see once I get another phone
about the size of it.
Although, there is some other reason some people like the
larger phones, but I just can't remember why though, other
than the larger screens, and I think just maybe there is
another reason for the larger screens, but again I don't
know.
I am also wanting to buy an iPad, and one reason is because
I'm hoping the screen will be larger than my phone, but I
wouldn't be carrying that around with me unless for some
reason I had to. So I guess it really all depends on the
person, and who knows maybe the size of their hands!
Smile!

So I hope to make the 5s last as long as I can.

Hi Carolyn,
It is really just so hard to pick a smart phone today, as
they have so
many out there. I went with the Apple phone for the
simple reason is
Apple does work with voiceover to make it as accessible
for all blind
people, and It works just fine for me. I think you might
be better
off if you join an iPhone list, as maybe an Android list
so you can
ask all the questions you need to know. I don't know
anything about
Android phones, so I can't even comment on them, but I can
comment on
the iPhone and voice over in which is one hundred percent
accessible
for blind people, although, Android might be just as
accessible, I
don't know. My older brother has the SE iPhone, and he
absolutely
loves that phone, and he won't part with it for nothing!
According to
him, this SE phone is the best phone that has ever came
out.
He doesn't have much patients to work with the phone, but
he has Siri
to do everything he wants the phone to do. For example,
he tells Siri
who to call, he tells Siri to text a message, he tells
Siri to send an
email, he tells Siri to set his alarm, He tells Siri open
Safari which
is the browser, he tells Siri to add appointment to his
calendar, he
tells Siri to create a reminder, he tells Siri to create a
note, he
tells Siri to open his play list, he tells Siri to open
the news app,
etc. I could go on and on. Although, I also know several
people who
have the iPhone 7, and they say it is the best, and they
wouldn't part
with it for nothing! I did at one time seriously
considered buying the
iPhone SE because I liked the size though. Some of my
older Nieces
have the Android phones, and they say they wouldn't pay
the price for
the Apple phones, so they stay with the Android, but they
are also
happy with them. A lot of people say you have to really
hold the
phone in your hands to get the snugly feeling though. I
still have my
iPhone 6, and I have a love hate relationship with it
meaning I love
it when it works, and I hate it when it doesn't work, but
it is like a
computer, meaning somethings happen for no rhyme or
reason! I call my
phone carrier a few days ago, and they had a special if
one bought an
iPhone 8, one would also get a free one, aw damn, I should
have jumped
at the chance! So there is a lot for you to think about
before buying
either phone, because they all cost money. It also
depends a lot on
what you will be doing with your phone. I will soon be
buying another
phone myself, and I am considering either 7 or 8 iPhone,
as well as
maybe the new iPad second generation. I might just
replace my
batteries in my old iPhone 6, and keep it as a backup, so
a lot to
think about myself! I do know of a good Apple list you
could join if
you are interested, you could let me know. This list I
would refer
you to is just all about Apple devices, and they can
answer all your
questions, and they are very nice and tech savvy, and they
have a
wonderful owner to that list.
Happy searching, Smile! !

Janet

How often does CCleaner really need to be updated?  People are concerned about the increasing lack of accessibility, but if you just use it as a file removal tool, does it matter if you run the latest one or an older accessible version? 
 
As long as its new enough to work properly with Windows 10, wouldn't the files it looks for be in the same place?

Well, hang on a bit. Because there might be a second

the iPhone 7 with the same processor. At least if you

Hang in there for a month or so and see what happens.

Hi Carolyn,
It is really just so hard to pick a smart phone today, as
they have so
many out there. I went with the Apple phone for the
simple reason is
Apple does work with voiceover to make it as accessible
for all blind
people, and It works just fine for me. I think you might
be better
off if you join an iPhone list, as maybe an Android list
so you can
ask all the questions you need to know. I don't know
anything about
Android phones, so I can't even comment on them, but I can
comment on
the iPhone and voice over in which is one hundred percent
accessible
for blind people, although, Android might be just as
accessible, I
don't know. My older brother has the SE iPhone, and he
absolutely
loves that phone, and he won't part with it for nothing!
According to
him, this SE phone is the best phone that has ever came
out.
He doesn't have much patients to work with the phone, but
he has Siri
to do everything he wants the phone to do. For example,
he tells Siri
who to call, he tells Siri to text a message, he tells
Siri to send an
email, he tells Siri to set his alarm, He tells Siri open
Safari which
is the browser, he tells Siri to add appointment to his
calendar, he
tells Siri to create a reminder, he tells Siri to create a
note, he
tells Siri to open his play list, he tells Siri to open
the news app,
etc. I could go on and on. Although, I also know several
people who
have the iPhone 7, and they say it is the best, and they
wouldn't part
with it for nothing! I did at one time seriously
considered buying the
iPhone SE because I liked the size though. Some of my
older Nieces
have the Android phones, and they say they wouldn't pay
the price for
the Apple phones, so they stay with the Android, but they
are also
happy with them. A lot of people say you have to really
hold the
phone in your hands to get the snugly feeling though. I
still have my
iPhone 6, and I have a love hate relationship with it
meaning I love
it when it works, and I hate it when it doesn't work, but
it is like a
computer, meaning somethings happen for no rhyme or
reason! I call my
phone carrier a few days ago, and they had a special if
one bought an
iPhone 8, one would also get a free one, aw damn, I should
have jumped
at the chance! So there is a lot for you to think about
before buying
either phone, because they all cost money. It also
depends a lot on
what you will be doing with your phone. I will soon be
buying another
phone myself, and I am considering either 7 or 8 iPhone,
as well as
maybe the new iPad second generation. I might just
replace my
batteries in my old iPhone 6, and keep it as a backup, so
a lot to
think about myself! I do know of a good Apple list you
could join if
you are interested, you could let me know. This list I
would refer
you to is just all about Apple devices, and they can
answer all your
questions, and they are very nice and tech savvy, and they
have a
wonderful owner to that list.
Happy searching, Smile! !

1.Hold the Rainbow so that the activation button is facing down and away from you. The key ring should be on your left.

 

2. Place your right thumb in the middle of the side closest to you and your left hub on the lower left corner of the device.

 

3. Press down with both thumbs and slide to the left. You should feel that part of the panel move which you can then lift off and replace the battery. Hope this helps.

Hi,
I can't help but laugh at you and Pam when you both refer to these big
phones! Smile! Have you seen the iPhone SE? that came out I think in 2016
or 2017? From what I have been hearing that is pretty much a hot seller!
Those phones are supposed to be the same size as the 5S, or pretty close.
Just remember all the iPhones that are the plus ones and maybe the s as
well, are always going to be larger, and a lot of people love the larger
screens. From what I've heard that is one of the main reasons Apple brought
out the 5S phones because a lot of people wanted them the size of the 5S.
As far as myself, I don't particularly like the larger phones, as I have
quite small hands and fingers, so I might have to use both hands to hold a
larger phone like when I held an iPhone 7plus, and if I had to talk on it,
it would nearly cover half my face! The iPhone 6 that I currently have is
fine for me. I will see once I get another phone about the size of it.
Although, there is some other reason some people like the larger phones, but
I just can't remember why though, other than the larger screens, and I think
just maybe there is another reason for the larger screens, but again I don't
know.
I am also wanting to buy an iPad, and one reason is because I'm hoping the
screen will be larger than my phone, but I wouldn't be carrying that around
with me unless for some reason I had to. So I guess it really all depends
on the person, and who knows maybe the size of their hands! Smile!

I prefer braille screen input over other braille apps. I find that braille screen input it works very well for me as I’m very fast with it.

As for FlickType, I don’t know because I am not very proficient with the on screen keyboard. I need to practice with that.

My friend has a 7. I was thinking of an SE, but might get a 7, since
it is a little newer.

I am resolved that if others can use touch screens, I can too, but I
know Siri will do a whole lot. I had a 4S and got pretty good with the
thing. I just found out about accessible feature phones, got so
comfortable with them, but miss reminders, temperature, lots of things
you get with smart phones that you don't with feature ones.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,
It is really just so hard to pick a smart phone today, as they have so
many out there. I went with the Apple phone for the simple reason is
Apple does work with voiceover to make it as accessible for all blind
people, and It works just fine for me. I think you might be better
off if you join an iPhone list, as maybe an Android list so you can
ask all the questions you need to know. I don't know anything about
Android phones, so I can't even comment on them, but I can comment on
the iPhone and voice over in which is one hundred percent accessible
for blind people, although, Android might be just as accessible, I
don't know. My older brother has the SE iPhone, and he absolutely
loves that phone, and he won't part with it for nothing! According to
him, this SE phone is the best phone that has ever came out.
He doesn't have much patients to work with the phone, but he has Siri
to do everything he wants the phone to do. For example, he tells Siri
who to call, he tells Siri to text a message, he tells Siri to send an
email, he tells Siri to set his alarm, He tells Siri open Safari which
is the browser, he tells Siri to add appointment to his calendar, he
tells Siri to create a reminder, he tells Siri to create a note, he
tells Siri to open his play list, he tells Siri to open the news app,
etc. I could go on and on. Although, I also know several people who
have the iPhone 7, and they say it is the best, and they wouldn't part
with it for nothing! I did at one time seriously considered buying the
iPhone SE because I liked the size though. Some of my older Nieces
have the Android phones, and they say they wouldn't pay the price for
the Apple phones, so they stay with the Android, but they are also
happy with them. A lot of people say you have to really hold the
phone in your hands to get the snugly feeling though. I still have my
iPhone 6, and I have a love hate relationship with it meaning I love
it when it works, and I hate it when it doesn't work, but it is like a
computer, meaning somethings happen for no rhyme or reason! I call my
phone carrier a few days ago, and they had a special if one bought an
iPhone 8, one would also get a free one, aw damn, I should have jumped
at the chance! So there is a lot for you to think about before buying
either phone, because they all cost money. It also depends a lot on
what you will be doing with your phone. I will soon be buying another
phone myself, and I am considering either 7 or 8 iPhone, as well as
maybe the new iPad second generation. I might just replace my
batteries in my old iPhone 6, and keep it as a backup, so a lot to
think about myself! I do know of a good Apple list you could join if
you are interested, you could let me know. This list I would refer
you to is just all about Apple devices, and they can answer all your
questions, and they are very nice and tech savvy, and they have a
wonderful owner to that list.
Happy searching, Smile! !

Janet

Going to the phone store does sound like a good idea. I am kind of
leaning toward an iPhone SE. What do you all think of it in comparison
to a 7?

Opinions will be subjective! Whether it be Android or the iPhone, if
it fits snugly in your hands, I contend that that's your phone! These
devices ARE NOT DEVELOPED with the blind in mind; nevertheless, we
learn to use them for whatever catches our fancies. Your best bet, in
my view, is to visit a typical phone store and play with as many
Android phones as you can lay your pretty hands on and go home with
the one you fall in love with. That's what I did and that's why I'm
making this recommendation.

Sorry, to correct my last post, the SE does have touch ID
but not three D touch.

Just to clarify, there is no such thing as an SE6. There is
only the SE and it is exactly the size of the 5S. Probably
the same case with updated components. The systen components
are the same as the 6S but with no fingprint ID or three D
touch.

Hi,
I can't help but laugh at you and Pam when you both refer to
these big
phones! Smile! Have you seen the iPhone SE? that came out
I think in 2016
or 2017? From what I have been hearing that is pretty much a
hot seller!
Those phones are supposed to be the same size as the 5S, or
pretty close.
Just remember all the iPhones that are the plus ones and
maybe the s as
well, are always going to be larger, and a lot of people
love the larger
screens. From what I've heard that is one of the main
reasons Apple brought
out the 5S phones because a lot of people wanted them the
size of the 5S.
As far as myself, I don't particularly like the larger
phones, as I have
quite small hands and fingers, so I might have to use both
hands to hold a
larger phone like when I held an iPhone 7plus, and if I had
to talk on it,
it would nearly cover half my face! The iPhone 6 that I
currently have is
fine for me. I will see once I get another phone about the
size of it.
Although, there is some other reason some people like the
larger phones, but
I just can't remember why though, other than the larger
screens, and I think
just maybe there is another reason for the larger screens,
but again I don't
know.
I am also wanting to buy an iPad, and one reason is because
I'm hoping the
screen will be larger than my phone, but I wouldn't be
carrying that around
with me unless for some reason I had to. So I guess it
really all depends
on the person, and who knows maybe the size of their hands!
Smile!
Janet

Does any one know if apple will make another phone which is
not like a size
of a tablet?
I have the 5s and like the weight and size.
Maybe sighted people like the big screens, but it's real
useless to a blind
person.
So I hope to make the 5s last as long as I can.
I don't want to buy a phone a of a brick and as that heavy.
How does one get that huge phone into a pocket?
I heard someone gets shirts made for them, so a pocket to
fit the large
phones can fit without worrying about losing it.

Well, hang on a bit. Because there might be a second
generation of the SC
coming out in the very near future and that will be cheaper
possibly then
the iPhone 7 with the same processor. At least if you
believe the rumors.
Hang in there for a month or so and see what happens.
