Re: What is your typing speed?

That is a good idea. That was what Jim had me type on my keyboard to get started on that tablet. That keyboard was clumsy. Maybe some aren't. Maybe I'm quick to judge. But, I'll swear, at least on my iPhone, I might not be a speed demon, but I can get it right.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Hi Group,




To give my own typing speed test, I set a timer for 1 minute and then typed a standard typing test phrase such as: 'The quick red fox jumped over the lazy brown dogs' until I her the timer sound to end the 1 minute. Then I counted the number of words or set my word processor to do so and subtracted a word for each misspelled word and got my total for one minute.

Hello guys,
Just to evaluate my comparative speed, I would like to know how fast people here generally type?

I think at my best I cannot go faster than 35 wpm. Would like to improve it as I have to type a lot on daily basis.
Looking forward to all your responses. Any additional remarks/suggestions are also welcome.

Re: What is your typing speed?

I thought yall were talking about smart phones - used to be 85 words per minutes easy, when I was in medical transcription.

When my son applied for his job in 2013, he was talking to me, that he needed to type at least 35 words per minute, was worried. I said when you start to time yourself type ten to fifteen minutes, then to your calculations, because you gain momentum in time, where if you just type for a minute, you won't be quite as fast. He did, he got the job, has been promoted, and is still there at the age of 60. It is harder to get jobs when you're over 50, but unfortunately for the trade, electricians are getting older and older. Somehow that field has not attracted a lot of younger people.

Best regards,

Carolyn

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.

Hi Ron.
Your comment about the difference between Siri and how it works on the 7 and eight caught my attention.
The fact that Siri is in "the cloud" is one of the reasons I prefer not to use it. Siri working :onboard" is more appealing to me.
Now If the I phone 8 would go on sale for zero down with a 2 year contract I would go for that.
That's me.

Hi Group,


I am learning the iPhone through an instructor who is Apple certified.
He has instructed me to learn the keyboard method, but I tell you, using the dictation method works so well for me. I even sent a perfectly formatted version of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's The Arrow and the Song from my iPhone to my main e-mail address accessible from my computer and it had only one small mistake.


The voice recognition on the iPhone is so remarkable it defies description. BTW, someone on this list had said that the dictation method is insecure because it is using Siri in the cloud to accomplish the task. According to my instructor, beginning with iPhone 8, this is no longer true. The whole process occurs on the iPhone itself and not in the cloud. Thus the dictation method is no less secure than any other method of text input.

Re: Typing with mobile phones?

Carolyn:

I found the biggest difference in using Siri and dictating, is that you can start and stop your dictation, where you can't correct Siri if she doesn't get it right.

With dictation, you can go back and correct a mis-spelled word, as with Siri, you have to tell her to cancel the message and start all over again.

Hope this makes some sense.

You have more time to stop and think with dictation and edit and correct things.

Holly


Re: Typing with mobile phones?

Question about dictating:

If you are entering a contact, I guess in each field, you have to go to dictate, if you wanted to dictate? What is the difference in just using Siri in things like texting?

Re: NLS Folder Question

Gene
 

So you first have to create a folder using the Windows zip utility, place the zip file in that folder and unzip it which will result in the files being in that folder, not in a subfolder of that folder if you are using it in the default way. 
 
In other zip utilities, using extract here will result in the same behavior and you would do the same thing if you want consistency.  .

Pam, Ron is right, the default behavior of windows internal zip utility is to create folders with the titles of the archives, but if you look at a NLS zip, you'll just see the files inside without a folder name inside the archive. NLS in their infinite wisdom does this to give their patrons the ability to name the books what they wish, rather than with a DB . . . name as it is the name of the zip. since if you tell 7 zip to "extract here," with NLS zip files, it will not create a folder and you have the files inside the directory your sitting in, rather than under a name which coincides with the name of the zip. It is not that 7 zip ignores the name of a folder that someone may have created, because if you tell 7 zip to "extract here," and there is a folder name inside the zip, it will create that folder name anyway. I believe winzip has the same facility, what they call it escapes me, but if it works, that is the reason. Most people who create zip files or books, just zip up a folder which contains all the files so you wind up with a folder on the receivers end which is, most of the time, a good thing except when you wind up with empty folders where what you want to access becomes a couple folders within folders.

So, your zip named folder contains the same folder inside which may even contain another empty folder inside which contains what you are after. :)

Re: Victor stream email list

Laz
 

There is also a list specifically for the Victor Reader Trek which was
created to meet the demand of many on the Victor list who only wanted
to have messages about the newer Victor Reader Trek. one can join by
sending a blank email message to the following email address,

VRT+subscribe@groups.io

Re: What is your typing speed?

Hi. The last time I actually tested it, I was at 60 WPM. That was several years ago however. I find that as I’ve grown older, now almost 70 years old, I make way wore mistakes for some reason.

Hello guys,
Just to evaluate my comparative speed, I would like to know how fast people here generally type?

I think at my best I cannot go faster than 35 wpm. Would like to improve it as I have to type a lot on daily basis.
Looking forward to all your responses. Any additional remarks/suggestions are also welcome.

Regards


Re: An accessible software equalizer

Evidently, it is no longer accessible.  An interface for all sorts of audio effects, an equalizer, and other features is completely accessible in my very old computer with a very old Realtek card.  Its unfortunate it isn't accessible now.  I suspect it isn't accessible with other screen-readers either.

Gene,
If by equalizer you are referring to the Realtek panel, where you can even set up things like what happens when a headset is connected to the computer, I don't think it's accessible at all.
To be honest, NVDA reads me nothing there.
And I can't tel you since when I get it, perhaps since I started using Realtek :)

One of my computers has a sound card with an accessible equalizer.  It is a Realtek soundcard.  It is an old card.  Is the equalizer still accessible with new Realtek cards?  If not, is their an accessible third party equalizer? 
 
Someday, when I buy a new computer or this old one stops working, I want to have access to an accessible equalizer on it.
