Re: What is your typing speed?

David Moore <jesusloves1966@...>
 

,Hi! I can type no more than 60 words per minute I type faster on a smaller keyboard than I do a regular size keyboard. I can't explain it, but on my little neck with a small keyboard I can type faster because the keys are closer together, and if the keys pressed down fast more easily I can't I pee and faster. If the keys are harder to press down that slows down my typing speed. What about 60 words per minute is about all I've been able to get too. Thanks a lot for asking this question it will be interesting to hear what people say. Have a great one everyone! David Moore

When you unzip a book, it makes its own folder.  Pam.

Hi Ann,

 

What you need to do for the NLS digital player  is to make sure that each book you download from NLS and/or any Daisy formatted book is in its own folder.  Then to play MP3 files--either music or books--you must create a separate folder called audio+podcast.  You can create separate folders for MP3 type books within the audio+podcast folder, but you will have to keep track of them yourselves since only the MP3 audio itself will describe the book title and author.

Re: NLS Folder Question

You don’t need to create any kind of a folder for them.  If you want to put mp3s on a drive that has NLS books in the route of the drive, then, you would have to create a folder for the mp3s.  But for BARD books, you don’t have to do anything except put them on the drive after you unzip them.  Pam.

Re: Victor stream email list

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Karim Lakhani & List:
The list has a couple of Humanware dealers on it, however almost all parts
for the Stream are proprietary, it consists of the case, battery,
motherboard and keypad. What parts are you seeking? Humanware does not do
repairs to the headphone or microphone jacks, they appear to replace the
entire Motherboard, either that or doing some micro-soldering is
outrageously expensive! You may find a local electronics repair center will
do headphone or mike jack repairs at a fraction of Humanware's charge.

Hi Group,


Before my health decline, I could type around 150 Words per minute.  I am still about 75  word per minute now.  As far as advice, the only way to get good at this or any other skill is to practice a lot.  Before the days of talking computers, when I did everything by rote memorization, I was more cautious.  I don't quite remember the speed--probably about 60 or 70 words per minute, but once I got speech with my computer, and I could hear each word and spell check, that's when my speed increased--until my neural motor conditions slowed me down.

Accessible price tracking extensions?

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

I’m in search of an accessible price tracking service/extension. I’ve tried CamelCamelCamel Keepa, Price Plus and Honey for example. For the usual sites, Amazon, NewEgg, BestBuy and so on,  but all in all, they don’t really provide this info in an accessible format. They’re all pretty much graph/chart driven. There is sometimes some info that can be accessed. CamelCamelCamel can provide the highest/lowest price, but as far as more detailed info? Not really.

Is anyone aware of a service/extension that can provide this sort of information in an accessible manner? I’m guessing most likely in a table format? To be clear, I’m not looking for a price tracker that can alert one when there’s a price drop. That I can get to work fine. It’s the historical price tracking stuff I’m interested in.

My main screen reader is Jaws, but I can also use NVDA if that makes any sort of a difference.

Thanks,

I am currently finalizing my survey and expect to complete it within a week.  I expect it to take between 40-45 minutes when finished. Participants in the survey will be entered into a draw to win four £25.00 amazon.co.uk gift cards. Anyone who would like to participate in the survey please e-mail me  at my academic address (es777@...), and I will send out the survey when it is completed.

I apologize for the off topic post.
