Re: How to create a dropbox share folder

Question:  To do this stuff with a dropbox, one must have the software loaded on the computer and have it running?  Is this correct?
Thanks.

There was no share with, but when you press enter on the share option it asks you who you want to share with, you put in the email address tab to the share button and press enter.

I don't know why the option isn't available in your application.  It should be.  I just went online with my Windows 7 machine, opened the application, found a folder, and checked.

In the context menu, are two items, share and share with.

Gene,

There are no other Dropbox-related choices on the context menu for a Dropbox folder than "Copy Dropbox link" and "View on dropbox.com." If one wants to share a Dropbox folder with another person, a visit to the Dropbox Website and a login to one's account is an absolute requirement, which of course can be accomplished by activating the aforementioned view-on link..

Log in to your Dropbox account, find the directory or file you want to share, and activate the "Share" link. Of course, if you want to share a file that's inside a directory, you have to open that directory first, locate the file, then activate "Share." . Next, enter the email address of the person with whom you want to share the file or directory, type an optional message, and activate the "Share" button.

In addition, there is D for document. When you are in a pdf, you can scan it with the layered keystroke insert space, the o then D.

The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.

I don't see why the version of Windows would matter.  I've seen occasions where someone would report a problem to a list I follow where they didn't see all the items that should be in the Drop Box context menu such as share but I don't recall anyone ever providing an answer or a solution.

Re: Jaws and dating sites

 

I understand what you're saying. You've been fortunate with what you
are doing. I think a lot of that might be due to the fact you are a
man. Women are nurturers and I won't get started about how men can get
preferential treatement when it comes to working.
When I went to set up my first profile I did my pictures first and got
a lot of attention/likes. I didn't disclose I was blind and would talk
to the guys ... after a while when it came to discussing possibly
meeting I mentioned that I was blind. I had a couple of guys keep
talking, but the rest ghosted on me.
When I set up my account on OKC I made sure it was in my profile. I
didn't get as many responses as I had when I didn't mention that I was
blind, but the few that did didn't see it as a problem. I guess it may
be the line I had where I mentioned that I would need someone up for
the challenge dating me would present. I dunno I thought it clever. I
personally try to think of stuff I need to do as a challenge to figure
out how to get it done rather than something to over come.
I'm constantly making jokes, I used to do this before I lost my sight,
but since then it gave me more material.. I make sure that the people
I'm talking to know full well that I am capable of whatever I am
doing, not just dating or whatever, before I pull out the stupid
jokes. I'm a bit of a goofball.... so if someone says "do you see
this over here?" I'll answer with no ... what's it look like? Or if a
trainer is demostrating an exercise I'll ask them to do it again. It
also works if they ask the group if they know what an exercise is and
I say no, please show me.... I save that one for the hard exercises
though--most people are my friends and are prepared when it comes to
my sense of humor.
I always like when someone informs me I'm blind. I like to act really
shocked and say ... nooo? really??

with NVDA. I did not think about using jaws or narrator. I used OkCupid. I
didn’t pay for it though and it seem to have worked for me. There are some
things that didn’t work for me and I haven’t seen if those things have
been fixed lately with the iOS app. I would switch back and forth between
the mobile site when I used it on my computer.
I put that I am blind in my profile. I felt that it would be a sort of
deception on my part if I did not disclose that at first. I did not get a
lot of responses when I sent them out, but I figured I would weed them out
to begin with. I still got some interest from other people, but I did not
use it for very long before I found the person I am currently seeing. So I
have not experimented with it more since I started with back in March.

Hi Everyone:


Does any of you know if Jaws works well with dating sites and if so,
which ones do you think are the best? I have tried some and you have to
put in a code that you see on the screen and Jaws doesn't work with that
or any screen reader for that matter. A lot of dating sites seem not to
be willing to help people with disabilities. Thanks in advance for any
feedback.

Re: Jaws and dating sites

 

You are quite welcome. It helps to share experiences with other blind
people ... google doesn't always help that is for sure.
I would suggest, if you didn't already do this, to make and use a
google voice number for online dating. The iOS app for GV is pretty
accessible and it is free. I don't use it for complicated stuff so I
guess that is why it is easy to use. I like how i can check it using
my computer. I would hear the notification sound on my phone and
wouldn't have to stop what I was doing to check it on my phone.

Thank you so much for sharing your story with me. I greatly appreciate
it and I have to admit, I'm a lot like you. I can usually tell when
someone is a scammer or they aren't. The only time it happened to me
was when someone said how much do you make at work and he also had a
different area code than me and that's a red flag in my opinion. I
ignored this guy and moved on. I didn't even know him and he asked me
how much I made. He was also in another country and he said he was
retiring from the service next year. I just don't trust a lot of
people. I like to start by getting to know them. I have been doing
this for many years. I'll keep you posted after I try it.

I admit that I don't have a lot of experience with OKC. I never ran
into that problem with the few guys I talked to I also limited my
search to 20 miles of where I live and narrowed it down more when it
came to what sort of relationship I was looking for. I would see about
looking up how to work your profile. You know how they say to look
alert when walking out to your car alone at night? I know that doesn't
always count for a blind person, but the essence is the same. If you
look confident and alert the scammers will pass you by since you won't
look like an easy mark.
I did get a few messages that might've led that way on match, but I
cut those off quick.
I've been blind for 11 years and the years I wasn't I spent the bulk
of that on the internet. I was either playing online games or chatting
so I had a sort of scam/asshole detector going on. Match helped me
re-engage that since I hadn't been on the internet much since I lost
my sight.... It's not fair to think each potential guy is a scammer,
but I'd rather be safe than sorry again. A bad relationship decision
was pretty much a big reason I lost my sight in the first place. I
used to attract jerks, lol.
I think reading profiles can give you a good idea of the person. I
would skip profiles where they used bad grammar, "lol" a lot, and just
things like that. I also used to pay attention to the amount of
pictures they had on their profile. I know I couldn't see them, but if
there was only one or two that made me think. In this day and age it
is too easy to take a picture. Heck even I take a lot of pictures and
I'm totally blind.
With match profiles I noticed that some would copy and paste the exact
same paragraph or two so I would skip them. You just get a feel for it
I guess? I would say read the questionss, but some guys don't update
their answers. I took note of some answers and asked my boyfriend
about his answer ... his reply was that he hadn't updated them since
he created his acount years ago. hah So, get some answer/questions and
ask the person messaging you. I'd think that would be a good way to
see because you can't change your answers for 24 hours I think.
My sister, years ago, ran into a scam from an dating app. I forget
what it was called... it had to do with wire transfers and Nigeria.
When she told me about it I couldn't believe it because the word
"Nigeria" would have set off air raid sirens in my head.I won't go
into what all happened with her, but I made her get everything related
to it and report it to the FBI.
If there is any mention of money, needing this or that, or anything
not related to getting to know someone and wanting something I'd ditch
it and move on. I know as a blind person pickings are slim, but there
is no reason to settle ... ever. I wouldn't ditch it right away, but
give them time to redeem or hang themselves.
As I said I talk a lot.... I did a lot of research before I even
created accounts. I looked up how to fill out my profile, what to
include or not include in it, ways to word it, and things like that. I
also looked up how to message people and how it might go. I was really
out of the game when it came to messaging people who weren't my
family/close friends. I started with the 7 day trial with Match, was
suckered into paying for a month, and moved on to the next app which
was OKC.
It is tempting to run ahead and get things right now, but I prefer to
be prepared before I go into any endevor.
I'm in no way an expert since I was very fortunate to find someone
interesting within a couple of months, but a little info is still some
info.I know what to do, for the most part, if I have to do it all over
again.

Thanks so much for all of your help. I do have one question, do you
notice with ok cupid that there are a lot of scam artists asking for
money? They sound really good on their profiles and then you come to
realize they are not who they say they are? My friend has found quite a
few scam artists on there from different countries. Thanks again.

I switch back and forth between the mobile (m.okcupid.com) and the
desktop site. It depends on what you are wanting to do. I had to mess
around wwith it a bit to be able to respond to messages I got with
likes. They changed it so that messages don't go through unless both
parties like each other. That can be frustrating when you get a
notification that someone liked and messaged you.... I used those
sites coupled with the iOS app. I had to turn VO off to swipe though
to get to the profiles that also messaged/liked me. It takes trial and
error, but I was mostly satisfied with it.
I can read profiles and the questions just fine. You have to go from
the top a lot of the times because of the way their site is
programmed.... navigating by single letter doesn't always work either.
I do some searching with find too.

I
had trouble navigating the site. I would rather do free ones because
when they see that I'm blind in my profile, I don't get many
responses.
I have been on pof now for over a year and have found nothing. I can
read profiles really well and I can also send messages with no
problem.
Is ok cupid like that? Thanks everyone for your comments.

Archive of Talkback

Robert Mendoza
 

Hi, I was trying to help my friends phone unit of android. However he told me that he accidentally update his Talkback to version 6.2
which causes his phone fails to runs strangely. And, I believe it is not compatible with his android version 5.1.1 system.

I tried to look and search the older version but no luck. If there is someone know the archive site to download the 6.1 I appreciate in advance.
