Hello,

Has anyone ever used wget to get an archived version of a complete web
site from the internet archive time machine? If so, can you let me
know how you did it?

Thanks.

Smiling? Heather, and all
 
In thinking about the question, it is important to know just what the person wants to do.  Does the person just want to talk or does the person want to talk, stop or pause the recording, then continue after thinking about what further she wants to say.  Virtual Recorder would be good if the person just wants to record something without stopping and starting the recording.  But you can't stop and resume.  Every time you stop and resume, a new recording is made.  MP3 Direct Cut does allow you to stop and resume.

Re: How to block emails?

Thomas N. Chan
 

Basically, block list and what it does is the same as mail rules. It’s a just a user friendly name for N-users.

 

It might move those emails to the delete folder or some might just deleted it for good. Like it or not, for the email client to detect block emails or mail rules to work, the emails need to be downloaded.

As far as I know, all it will do is send the blocked files to the deleted messages folder.  You may not mind that, but you will still be receiving the mail. 

 

Also will this procedure really block a list or will it block the person who sent the message?  If it uses the from line of messages to determine what to block, it will block the person, not the list.  That means you won't receive the person's mail, no matter if he/she sends you a message off list, and you won't receive the person's mail from any other list.

 

At this point, I'm not sure it is wise to fool around with blocking.  Using message rules would be wiser, since at this point, we don't know what blocking does.

 

If you tell us what list server the lists are on, we may be able to tell you how to actually unsubscribe or how to find out the e-mail method.  Different list serves follow different patterns.  Someone who knows how to unsubscribe by e-mail from one list on a list serve can follow the same pattern for every other list on that list serve.

1. Highlight any email you are interested in blocking and use your Applications key (Shift+F10) and press J for the Junk submenu... option.

2. There will be options to Block, Unblock and Never Block etc.

 

It’d be best for you though if you just unsubscribed from these various lists instead like was already mentioned. Check the various footers of the emails because usually there is an unsubscribe address or address to the homepage within for a lot of lists which it sounds you already tried with unsuccessful results, but unsubscribing would be best because why cause your computer unnecessary work, you know?

Hi List  I am using Outlook 2016 on a Windows 10 desktop computer with Jaws 2019. 

 

There are some lists that I have joined, but now I wish to unsubscribe from them.  However merely clicking on the unsubscribe button on some of these has not done the job.

 

Therefore, I figure the only thing left to do is to block them. 

 

What is the specific peace of information from one of their messages do I need to have to do this?  What then do I do to block them?

 

Thank you very much for any help!

Re: Braille labeler‘s

I agree. Someone from another list suggested the same thing. I read about a plastic labeler on one of the websites, but I decided I didn’t want that one because I would probably break it almost immediately. I agree that a metal labeler will be much more rugged.

Thank you for your suggestion.

I know this topic has been covered before, but I am interested in purchasing a new braille labeler. I want a handheld braille labeler like the one I used to own. I’ve been looking online and I have seen them for as little as $25, and as much as just under $70. I want one that is durable, easy to use and will last a long time.

Which braille labeler do you recommend? From where do you suggest I purchase it? I’m considering either Amazon.com or the braille superstore. I think the braille superstore is also known as future aids. I don’t think that I will purchase it from LS & S products or Maxi aids just because I don’t like getting around on those websites.

Re: Editing with NVDA

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Gene, an excellent post! You explain well, and give cogent reasons for your opinions. I agree wholeheartedly. When I took Cathy Murtha's train the trainer course back in the dark ages, she used to say that if we trained our students correctly, they should be able to sit down at any computer, running any screen reader and do it well enough to get a task done. It shouldn't matter what screen reader you're using. If it allows you to read the screen and it repeats what you type, then you should be able to do basic tasks with it.

Ann P.


Original message:

Regardless, it is a cautionary example of what happens when you only learn proprietary screen-reader commands to do certain things. JAWS has proprietary commands to use the numpad for document navigation. But it is still important to learn the Windows way to do this so you can do what you want to do in the most convenient manner. Any good instructional material or instructor teaches the Windows way to do things, and if there is an advantage in using proprietary screen-reader commands at times to do certain things, will teach those as well.
But let's take an example:
If the only way you know to move in a document is the JAWS commands, it makes editing much more inconvenient. You have to constantly take your right hand away from the home keys and move much farther away from them to move. Let's say you are at the beginning of a line and you want to move five words in and edit the fifth word.
If you know the Windows wway, you can use control right arrow to move to the word, then edit.
If you only know the JAWS way, you have to move to the numpad, move using the numpad, then place your hand back on the home row and etit. Compared to the Windows method, it is cumbersome.
Also, if you don't know the Windows way, any time you use a computer, such as a laptop, that doesn't have a numpad, you are put at a significant inconvenience.
and, while this isn't meant as a criticism, control left and right arrow are taught in any good Windows instructional material early on. This raises the question of how much inconvenience the person is needlessly going through by somehow, perhaps, learning only proprietary JAWS commands for other activities where it is of benefit to know both.
And note carefully that I am not blaming or criticizing the person. I'm saying that however she was taught or whatever materials she used may have been inadequate.

Re: Editing with NVDA

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Of course no one can learn all the commands for anything in the computer world. That's why there are cheat-sheets. that's why there is a recent publication of a new list of keyboard shortcuts for Windows by Dean Martineau. With that said, cursor movement and basic editing commands in Windows should be learned and used. These are basic commands that are usually taught when a student first opens a word processor. You can't get anywhere in a word processor if you don't learn cursor movement commands. We're not talking Jaws cursor commands, or the technical inns and outs of formatting.

I do not often run Jaws, and when I do, I use it as I would use any other screen reader, to read the screen. I use Windows commands and program commands to get stuff done. Apparently, Jaws has attempted to make itself the only set of keyboard commands which are needed by a user. this is good in that the learning curve is made less steep.
However, I think that Vispero has done its users a disservice by encouraging dependency on Jaws instead of on Windows. It makes users unable to get away from Jaws. I don't believe that this benefits users at all.

Now, I know I'm an old curmudgeon. I know I'm opinionated and sometimes I'm a bit acerbic, but I just hate to see people dependent on anything at all, be it sighted guide, alcohol or a given screen reader. One should be independent and be able to make choices freely. One should control one's computer, not the other way around.

That's my opinion, and it's worth the usual $.02.

Heck ctrl right and left arrow keys even works in Linux! So do ctrl-x ctrl-c and ctrl-v. they're universal! I believe that ctrl-p for print also works. Again, best advice is to get a copy of a keyboard command list and keep it handy.

Hi all,

Yes, it is apparently a list which is run on l-soft software, one of the oldest and best loved list softwares. The subscription info is correct, at least if it follows the pattern of l-soft software. Caveat, you must use a first name, and a last name or initial. If you don't, listserv burps.

MS-DOS version 6.22 is the latest version of DOS, as far as I know. There might be other versions of a DOS emulator of which I know nothing.

I do know that MS-DOS version 6.22 will run only on a 32-bit operating system.

I also know that 32-bit versions of Windows7 were produced (I have one). I do not know if later versions of Windows were produced to run as 32-bit operating systems.

Re: Selecting with NVDA?

Gene
 

I'm not sure if these comments will help, but they may help you understand what the commands do in JAWS using the Numpad. 
 
The Numpad in JAWS emulates certain commands but it doesn't do more.  Just plain down arrow does what Numpad 2 does in JAWS.  Numpad 8 emulates the up arrow.Numpad 4 and 6 are the same as the left and right arrow keys on the main keyboard.
Insert left and right arrow move by word, exactly as control left and right arrow do. 
 
I'm not quite sure what you want to do but it may be that something isn't allowing the interface to work as it should.  does ITunes cause your screen-reader to go into browse mode?  Should you be in forms mode to do what you want to do?  When you are in the list, if you issue the command insert, that is the default NVDA key and press space while holding insert, Do you hear a sound?  If so, you are probably in forms mode.  Do things work as expected then? 
 
Perhaps JAWS didn't work as expected because it is in the virtual PC cursor.

Hi, thanks for trying to help! 

 

Unfortunately, that does not work for me anymore.

 

I am using iTunes 12.8 on a Windows 10 desk top computerand I think the latest NVDA, since Jaws 2019 won’t let me rearrange songs in a playlist.

 

I do a search for all the songs of a particular artist and select them all and paste them into their own playlist.

 

However, I then want to rearrange the order of them.

 

Now, in the older times, when Jaws would let me, I would indeed, use “Shift+DownArrow” to select a song and then I could cut or copy it, but that no longer works for me.  I have even tried it with Aira watching.  They could see that nothing would happen when I tried my tried and formerly true method. 

 

However, when I turned Jaws off and then they used the exact same command, it would work.

 

I found, when I switched to NVDA that the Number pad does not let me move the cursor around. The triangle keys to the left must be used instead.  Under those conditions, I have not figured out how to select one of the songs so I can move it to a different place in the playlist, since “Shift+DownArrow” then selects the song below the song I have just heard and which is the one I want to move.

 

Can any NVDA people help?

 

My sincerest thanks for any help in this.  I really miss being able to create playlists as I want them.

Subject: [TechTalk] Selecting with NVDA?

 

Hello List, I am bran new to NVDA, but I am trying to use it with iTunes, since Jaws 2019 will not let me select songs to either put them in a playlist or rearrange them. 

 

I have had sighted people do what I wanted to do and when Jaws is not involved, it works just fine and not at all if Jaws is running.

 

However, in NVDA I know that I must use the triangle cursor keys and I haven’t been able to select using them, since “Shift+DownArrow” selects the next item and not the one just read.

 

Any suggestions please?

 

Sincerely, Vicky V

Hi, thanks for trying to help! 

 

Unfortunately, that does not work for me anymore.

 

I am using iTunes 12.8 on a Windows 10 desk top computerand I think the latest NVDA, since Jaws 2019 won’t let me rearrange songs in a playlist.

 

I do a search for all the songs of a particular artist and select them all and paste them into their own playlist.

 

However, I then want to rearrange the order of them.

 

Now, in the older times, when Jaws would let me, I would indeed, use “Shift+DownArrow” to select a song and then I could cut or copy it, but that no longer works for me.  I have even tried it with Aira watching.  They could see that nothing would happen when I tried my tried and formerly true method. 

 

However, when I turned Jaws off and then they used the exact same command, it would work.

 

I found, when I switched to NVDA that the Number pad does not let me move the cursor around. The triangle keys to the left must be used instead.  Under those conditions, I have not figured out how to select one of the songs so I can move it to a different place in the playlist, since “Shift+DownArrow” then selects the song below the song I have just heard and which is the one I want to move.

 

Can any NVDA people help?

 

My sincerest thanks for any help in this.  I really miss being able to create playlists as I want them.

I have never accessed this website before, but I have heard about it and it sounds promising! Apparently, they do not yet have an app for iOS or android. It would be nice if they would develop one.

Hello all,

I've been enjoying the TLF web site.

www.thelistenfactor.com

 

I was just hoping if someone could help me understand the odd behavior that I'm experience when trying to listen to the site on channel 1.

When I use safari on the iPhone and on that particular web site all channels work accept for "1". I get a network error.

I've made sure to unplug the modem and then clear cache or what ever the problem could be..

When I access the web site on my desktop computer I have no  problem listening to channel 1.

I'm thinking this is only my problem because I've not heard any one else bring it up.

Any ideas on what I need to clear from the book marks or for safari?

thanks for any info.
