Re: iPhone update?

Barb O'Connor
 

First of all, I don’t think there was any r update that made voiceover unusable. I updated last week and everything is just fine. I have a couple questions however. Perhaps did your friend perhaps turn speech off with a three finger double tap or turn voiceover off with a triple click to the home button? Also the volume may have gotten turn down in which case voiceover would not be able to be heard. Just throwing that out there for you.

Hello,

Got a friend, with a friend who has an iPhone. Is there an Apple
update that is recent, like last week, that must be got or it kills

this iPhone now is unusable via voiceover until this update is
applied.

Thanks.

Does that happen with CDEX even if you get it from ninite.com?  Pam.

I haven't used the XP version of Media Player and I don't know if it is any different than the Windows 7 version.  But the Windows 7 rips and burns well.  As with Microsoft programs of this sort in general, those that come with Windows and are intendede for the user who doesn't want more than a basic program, the program does what it does well but if you want more advanced features, you will have to use other programs.
 
I haven't seen much in the way of answers to this question so I'll say that CDEX is a popular ripping program.  But if you use it, get the portable version.  The installed version will place unwanted programs on your system unless you find the uncheck options during install which are inaccessible with screen-readers in general.  You may see them with System Access or System Access to Go.
 
I've heard of burning programs but I do very little burning and I haven't tried any of them.  I'm not recommending this one but it’s a name I remember.  Any Burn.  I don't know if it places unwanted software on your machine but if its free, as with most free programs these days, it probably does.  So you might not want to play with it until there is discussion from others about how easy it is to tell it not to do so, if it does.

Hi, I use windows media player to rip my CDs. I have had no problems besides the program not being able to find information on the CD but since most of the CDs I copy are audio books I don't see this as a problem.

So far I haven't needed to burn anything so can't say what windows media player is like for that.

Hi,


In your opinion, which would you say is the most accessible CD burner, ripper or all-in-ones software besides Windows Media Player, or is Windows Media Player the one to use in Windows 10 with narrator or NvDA?

Thanks for any input,

Re: I phone questions

Monte Single
 

Did you see Curtis's last message to Carolyn. He stated how to place a call with a voice command
What I am talking about is called a "voice command"
It has nothing to do with screenreaders or Siri I have a Samsung rugby, it is a flip phone. I can give voice commands for several things like,
Check battery,
Check time,
Signal strength,
New message etc.
These voice commands were on many brands and models of phone before Siri existed.
My aim is to use an I phone without a paid data package.
I can do this by using my wifi at home and free public spots.

HI Monte,
You can't just pick up the phone and tell it to call......... that is not going to happen. If you wanted to do that, you could press the power button on the right side of the phone to alert Siri, and just tell her to call a name in your contacts, or just tell her to dial......... Now, if you have Siri enabled on the lock screen, you can just say, hey Siri call........ or just say dial, and read out the number to her. Although, if you find out any different, please let me know. I use Siri for all I can. Monte, you need to understand voiceover is the screen reader on the iPhone in which it reads what is on the screen, just like JAWS is the screen reader on our computers. Either screen reader will not follow voice commands. Oh sure, you can make a phone call without using Siri, you would need to go in to your contacts, and search for the name of the person who you want to call, and you can double tap on it, and I think the call will go through, although, I haven't used this method in over 4 years though.

Re: Can I get rid of the ribbon with Windows 7?

joanne
 

Hi Ann. I actually wish I had a trainer who could show me in-depth how to use ribbons. The menus just look so hard to understand, and then I'll hear things like upper ribbon and lower ribbon, etc. and I feel lost and not sure which column I need. I'm just one of those who has always used the list views and traditional menus, and I don't feel like this has been explained thoroughly to me. You're a good instructor, I know, because your posts are so thoughtful and helpful. You're most likely doing a great job explaining them to your clients. I just haven't really hit on an explanation that makes sense. I even use the old windows live mail because the newer ones had ribbons and it looked so hard to navigate.

That's really it. Maybe it's some kind of visual thing I can't wrap my mind around. But I'm open and have pretty much taught myself computer. If anyone can explain these things and even why it had to be changed to ribbons in the first place, I'll try them.

Hi all,

I'm just curious. What is it about ribbons you don't understand? I'm asking as a trainer because I may need to help somebody some day who doesn't understand ribbons. I want to know how to minimize the misunderstanding. I want to know how to explain ribbons so that anyone can understand. Why don't you understand them? I'm asking as a serious question.

As a person who is blind, the appearance of the ribbons can't be what's throwing you. To a screen reader they just sound like menus except that you navigate them in a different way.

I'm not saying that you must use ribbons, I'm just interested in why you don't like or understand them. Jaws has virtual ribbons if you find that helpful as well, though I'd really like to understand your problem. Would you be willing to help a trainer to understand your thinking?

Hi all,
Bill, just use f12 when done writing your file and save it in .txt format.
F12 brings you to your good, old, familiar save-as dialog. Tab once to
get to the combo box for your file formats. Wordpad's default is .rtf,
which is also fine and will be readable by any computer.
As for the ribbons, my best advice is to bite the bullet and learn to use
them. It's not hard at all if you remember that the ribbons are merely
the combination of the menu bar and the toolbars in Word. Moreover, there
are keyboard commands for most ribbon options. In addition, all the
keyboard commands that you know and love like ctrl-s and so on still work,
even in win10.
It's not arcane, unlearnable, or incomprehensible. It's just a new menu.
They just packaged the same old stuff in a different box.

Hi all,

Well now, either you haven't been blind long or some idiot has
convinced you that exploring an item with your hands is wrong.
Probably given you some nonsense about not touching things because
people don't do that. How the Hell are you supposed to learn about
your world if you don't explore it with your hands, both hands. Now,
I'm not advocating far out stuff like feeling people's faces, but I
most certainly am advocating for exploring an object or your
environment thoroughly with your hands. Start at the top and work
down. Don't be afraid to get dusty or dirty. Sometimes it can be
gross, but someone's eyes see those same things. Unless you live in a
desert, you can always wash your hands. No touching of hot things or
getting in the way of power tools, please. <smiling>

The next time you use your DTBM, feel the entire top of it. The
seal is right there. It's round, and it's raised. There's a design in
the center and lettering around the edges. You'll find it, you can't miss it.

The same seal is on the cases too.

Hi, if you are using Jaws in the newer versions you have a setting which turns on menus. I’m not totally sure where it is but it is something about virtual menus. I have this on my windows 10 machine but I see no reason why it shouldn’t work on windows 7. Once this is turned on you have the old menu structure. I can’t remember which Jaws this started in.

Yes, but it may be that when you use Wordpad and save in text format, soft returns for line breaks are saved as hard returns, thereby having the line length you want.  I haven't played with this to any extent but I suspect that happens.  If you write with Notepad, there are no line lengths except what you create manually by pressing hard returns.

I always suggest that people keep their players, because they are entitled to have them, and because the other devices cost a lot of money. So, they can use the player some of the time, as to spare the device they spent money on, so that it will last longer. I like the sound of the player, anyway. When I say that, everybody says: "But you can hook the other device up to a speaker!" Well, the player has a good sounding speaker right inside it already. But, that's just me. I can only suggest.

Re: Need suggestion for a bag to carry all my tech

I don’t like backpacks.  But you can use a shoulderbag, or a tote bag, or even a computer bag.  Now that people carry computers everywhere with them, computer bags of all sorts are available everywhere.  Pam.

Good question! Personally, our use a backpack and a fanny pack that attaches to it via zippers. But I would like to know what other suggestions people have.

I have accumulated several tech items that I like to take with me when I go out. I use a cane and don't have enough pockets or hands to carry them. What would be a good type of bag for a man to carry to hold these items. Where could I get such an item?
