Hi  OK, thanks that is re-assuring.  I’ll give that some thought as I need to get this PC wiped and a re-install done so there is no point installing the utility until I’ve got that done.  Walter.

Hi to all.  Can anybody give me step by step instructions on how to disable the sleep mode on my external drives please?

 

All my computers are Win7 64bit and I’m using Jaws 2018.

 

They all have ssds but as I get annoyed with the sleep mode I’ve disabled that function for my internal hard drive.  However I do have a number of external drives; some Seagate and others Western digital.  When these drives go to sleep I find the Seagate drives wake up and respond within a few seconds but by and large the Western Digital drives are so very slow to wake up.  One of the Western Digital passport drives can take as much as 4 or even 5 minutes before responding (I think it is in a USB 2 port) others not so bad but they still take a good couple of minutes to wake up.  This is true of both portable drives and also mains driven drives.  As I said, I’ve disabled the sleep function on my computers internal hard drives and I’m happy with that but the western digital drives are a royal pain and if I could disable their sleep function life would be a lot less aggravating.  I know how to go to control panel and power settings for my internal drive but I don’t know where to go for the external drives; could it be devices? And if so where or what do I look for?  Any help appreciated.  Walter.

Actually, the code words to look for are Western Union Money Transfer!

I have received e-mail from the nicest sounding people who need 3,500 to pay
their hotel bill after their passport, plane tickets and money were stolen.

It is always a sum in U. S. Dollars despite them staying at a large hotel in
London.

My first question is which hotel are they staying in>? I say I will wire the
money to the Hotel's General Manager's Personal attention.

Or say I happen to be visiting London at the moment, staying at the Savoy,

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 number 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 questions, 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 account 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 a 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 picking 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 endeavor.
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.

I can read profiles and the questions just fine. You have to go from

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

When you say my first question is, are you saying you ask them or are you saying that is the question that comes into your mind?  You should never respond to a spam message.  It tells the spammers the address is active and may result in you getting more spam.

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 with 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 of 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.

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

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.

Accessible Video to Mp3 Converter

Hello,
I'm looking for a free video to mp3 converter that is fully accessible with JAWS and/or NVDA and can batch convert files. The switch sound converter requires payment, and I find Pazera inefficient. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.


apple tv 4th gen question

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

I have a question about apple tv, tv shows app and watching purchased tv shows. This may also apply to iPhones. When I enter a tv show season to watch, beside the play button, there is a seasons button, and right of that button is a remove button. What does the remove button do? I hope it will not delete the episodes I purchased if I should accidentally press it, making me have to buy that episode or season all over again? All my devices are android, but I like the huge amount of movies and tv shows content iTunes offers so I have an apple tv. And I’m thinking of also getting an iPod touch so I can watch my shows on the go, since iPod touch is the least expensive or cheapest apple device. Basically its iPhone without the phone. I like my android devices also, but iTunes has the most watchable content I think.

Hi to all.  Can anybody give me step by step instructions on how to disable the sleep mode on my external drives please?

 

All my computers are Win7 64bit and I’m using Jaws 2018.

 

They all have ssds but as I get annoyed with the sleep mode I’ve disabled that function for my internal hard drive.  However I do have a number of external drives; some Seagate and others Western digital.  When these drives go to sleep I find the Seagate drives wake up and respond within a few seconds but by and large the Western Digital drives are so very slow to wake up.  One of the Western Digital passport drives can take as much as 4 or even 5 minutes before responding (I think it is in a USB 2 port) others not so bad but they still take a good couple of minutes to wake up.  This is true of both portable drives and also mains driven drives.  As I said, I’ve disabled the sleep function on my computers internal hard drives and I’m happy with that but the western digital drives are a royal pain and if I could disable their sleep function life would be a lot less aggravating.  I know how to go to control panel and power settings for my internal drive but I don’t know where to go for the external drives; could it be devices? And if so where or what do I look for?  Any help appreciated.  Walter.




Re: External drives and sleep mode

Gene
 

It's unlikely you can turn this feature off.  See this article.  At the end of the article, it is interrupted with various content, there is a link that appears to be for the utility.  I got what I think is this utility and used it briefly quite awhile ago when I had a failing drive that was increasingly difficult to get to run after it slept.

accessible printers..?

Jim Wohlgamuth
 

Hi there FOLKS!

As the subject states I am looking for an accessible printer.  I would prefer a Hewlet Packard.  What I am wanting is a printer/scanner/copier if that is possible.  If the unit has a fax built-in I don't care but I probably won't use that feature much, but who knows what the future might bring..? Any suggestions would be welcome! Thanks Much! And Have A Great Day! de

I’m in the process of getting an FTP server up and running using FTP server.
Most unfortunately, it’s been a while since I’ve used this program and I’ve forgotten how to create aliases.
Could someone help me or suggest another server program that’s a bit easier to use?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Braille 1000 Watt Microwave

From Mack if it's the same one I have which does not have a turntable. Here are the buttons from top to bottom starting with one and ending at zero. this row is on the rite side. pre-sets. 1, 10 seconds. 2, 20 seconds. 3, 30 seconds. 4, 45 seconds. 5, one minute. 6, 90 seconds. 7, 2 minutes. 8, 3 minutes. 9, 4 minutes. 0, 5 minutes. I primarily use those settings. now the left side from the bottom up. start, stop, time entry, which is a big jumble of dots. to set your own time that pre-sets don't cover, press, time entry and 2, 3, 0, for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, press start. 10, 30, 10 minutes 30 seconds. of course press start. this next procedure requires sighted help. above time entry, there are 3 unlaveled buttons for power settings. the middle one is 50%. I recommend you have a sighted person to place a piece of tape on it. that's really all you need. I have not used this function yet. however this may work, press 50%, time entry, enter your time, press start. after the unit stops, I believe it defaults back to default setting. You have to open and close the door to be able to do more stuff. the fan runs for one minute after you open and close the door. It looks just like a microwave you might see in a 7-11. H T H.

Hi,

A few months ago or perhaps longer, on this list or another tech list,
someone mentioned a Panasonic microwave with a braille touch panel. I
ordered it and it arrived today. I am at a loss as to some of the functions
of this Microwave because of my lack of proficiency with Braille which is
still at the beginning level. I had a message from a Netbat66 but I can't
locate it at this time.

The manual I downloaded is not very accessible. Even with Jaws OCR.

I was wondering if Netbat66 or someone else who has this 1000 watt
Panasonic
microwave could give me a rundown on what the ten Braille buttons are from
top to bottom. And how to cook two things. First something simple. Like
just
something for like 1 minute and 10 seconds. And second something for like 9
minutes on high and 12 minutes on half power.

I am pretty sure the bottom two buttons are C and S and stand for clear and
start but I may be wrong.

I also saw some foam glued to a vent on the bottom of the unit directly in
front of the right front leg. I removed it with some difficulty because I
couldn't imagine foam being there for a reason. I hope that was not an
error
on my part.

Thanks in advance.

Merv
