Got this from Humanware's site.

 

enter Android settings by selecting All applications in the Main Menu, settings. Then go to Backup and reset, then select Factory data reset.
All your personal data will be erased, so make sure you made the necessary backups!

Hello,

 

I know that parrot voice note takers are no longer manufactured, but are there any other affordable devices that will assist in dialing a phone?

 

I am having difficulties feeling the buttons on the phone I have due to diabetic neuropathy in my fingers.

Re: Can't Get Audio outputs to work on new Toshiba Fire TV

I have a fire tv and the sonos play base. I just plugged the optical cable in and it worked. I disabled the tv speakers in settings. You shouldn’t have to do anything to enable the optical output.

Re: phone number dialer like the parrot note keeper

I’m really not sure, but I’ve heard of vocally. I’ve heard very mixed reviews about it, but maybe it is something to look into? And there are also phones that have voice dialing built in if you look on maxiaids.

Accessing Zoom Meetings Via computer

Abbie Taylor
 

I'm writing this in response to TeryLynne's query on the subject. I'm glad you were able to finally make it work, but  next time, now that the Zoom program has been downloaded, simply click on the link in the emil invitation. It'll open your browser and then Zoom, and if the host is there, you should automatically be joined into the meeting. I hope this helps.

Re: Using Zoom for webinars

Hi Ann,
So I did make it work. When I entered the download link, and ran Zoom, it
then asked for a code. It took me a while to figure out that they meant that
same http link which I had gone to in order to download Zoom. When I did
that, the whole thing worked.

Thanks so much for your help,

TerriLynne

Hi all,

What do you mean you weren't given a web address. The web address is in the
invitation. The invitation should say "Join via computer."
followed by the web address. Did the invitation come with a phone number
too? If you can't join the Zoom meeting via computer, use the phone number
and access code. You probably won't be able to join the meeting till a host
has joined, so I'd wait and join closer to the meeting time.

Re: question about next door

Holly
 

Hi Shelley:
 
I have been signed up on ‘next door’ for about six months now.  I get email notifications when there is something of interest that has been posted in my neighborhood and a general daily post in the afternoon.
 
I find that the sight is a bit time-consuming to use, as you have to arrow down quite a bit to get to the pertinent info and also click on other links to see all the related posts to a particular subject, but I do like the fact that there are posts concerning my immediate area.
 
I have been able to post a few ads to sell things, although, it took some fooling around with things.
 
All in all, it could definitely use some better accessibility for blind users.
 
I have not used the Mobil app as yet.

Hi

Do you mean a program that allows you to apply MP3 Tags to Songs? If so, MP3 Tag is a great and JAWS-accessible little program. You can select multiple files and use their file names as the title, apply artist and album info as well as auto number the tracks.
You can get it from

I just tried Stamp ID3 tag editor and I can't make it tag and keep the information; also, when it plays a song, it brings up this screen where there are a bunch of unlabeled buttons. Still having trouble with properties and need a good, screen-reader accessible editor.

Original message:

Wouldn't a Webinar be accessed with a browser, and the kind of thing you're talking about with Zoom be called a Zoominar? Pedantic, yes, but think about it. Zoom is only Web-based if you don't have the Zoom client, and if you don't have the Zoom client, the whole conference experience is inferior.

Thank you for sharing your experience with next door.  I found out that when you want to read what people are posting, go to home and then arrow down to toward the bottom and click on general and then arrow down more and then you should see what people are posting about.  I haven't tried this yet but if you want to comment on something you see, try going to where it says solar panels.  I guess we will learn as we fool around with it more.  If any of you know of anymore insight on how to use this, let us know.  I don't know if the smart phone App would be easier or worse.  I don't have any problems with Facebook.  This site is a great way to make new friends and that's why I joined but if it's going to be difficult to use, then maybe it won't be right for us.

So, would you say it's easier to use the smart phone App than the actual website?  I use both with Facebook and on the phone, I get notifications and then I can click on them and read them, comment and even like.  Can you do this with next door?  The other question I have is for both.  How do you post something and where?  One more question is where do you comment on something you see and also when neighbors welcome you?  Thanks again in advance for any help you can give me.

I use nextdoor on a regular basis, but, from my iPhone. The email links automatically go to the web page, but, I prefer the app. It is challenging to figure out and use. More people need to write to the devs with suggestions for improvement, and explaining the difficulties we have using it. They have seemed responsive in the past, but need guidance, and awareness that there isn’t just one of us that needs non-visual access.

I have posted ads, RSVP for attendance at events, and written help wanted pleas. I have written extensively regarding the homeless population that lives in the bushes along our hiking trails. Last summer I had a “giveaway weekend” and put up tables and a variety of things to give away. Several people came, and many offered to help make signs for the next time, I do this.

I have notifications turned on and get notices of new postings, mostly of lost or found pets, but, also police warnings, and alerts from neighbors. Recently, I had a skunk in my backyard, and I wrote to inform neighbors. Many had seen the skunk in their yards. There are often sightings of foxes and coyotes. I live in the city of Denver, but there is plenty of wildlife, some with two legs, some with four!

Crime notices or unknown people in backyards is particularly useful, as I live alone.

Contact me privately or on list with specific questions regarding using the web site or app.
