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. :)

I know of at least one person who sought out an electronics person who
could do what's called micro soldering and had the charging port fixed
for $50. There has been some mention of the techs at Batteries Plus
being able to do micro Soldering as well. However if one is looking

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.

Hi Greg,

Yes, it is durable. Now, I wouldn't jump up and down on it or drop it from too great a height, say four stories, but daily in and out of backpack, on and off table or desk, the occasional dropage won't hurt it at all. If it has any weak point it may be the hinges, but they're pretty darned strong.

I believe that APH sells slates and styli, but you'll get a much better
deal at either ILA or The Braille Bookstore. They both have all kinds
of slates.

If you're looking for a board slate, APH sells 'em for something like
$115.00. On the other hand ILA LS&S and the Braille Bookstore sell a
full-page slate made of heavy, durable plastic that does the same
thing. It has twenty-five lines and the even numbered lines are
labeled on the edge of the slate. I don't know why it took the U.S. so
long to procure these wonderful slates, but it did. These full-pagers
are the nuts, truly! If you look at the places I recommended, you'll
find that they sell for about $20.00. Who wants to pay $115.00 for a
board slate? Try a full-page one, I don't think you'll want to spend
all that money.

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.

I have never owned a Victor Stream, so I'm certain it was my NLS player on my thumb drive. What is the folder on the Victor Stream? Maybe it's the same.

I vaguely remember that I need to create an NLS folder on my thumb drive if I wish to place NLS books on it to use with the NLS player. What is that folder called?
 
Thank you.
 
Vicki
