I’m saying that if you have voice mail and don’t have an answering machine, you can’t hear who is calling and you have to check your messages every time someone calls after waiting a short time.  Its very cumbersome.  Suppose you get four legitimate calls in eight hours and in the same time, four solicitor calls you don’t want to answer.  Checking your voice mail messages eight times is disruptive and cumbersome.  With voice mail, you can hear who calls and answer in real time if you want.

You can always inform the people in your life that you always let phone calls go to voicemail or your answering machine. If they know this, they will leave a message and expect you to call them back. No big deal.

If you get a phone call and you do not recognize the phone number, let it go
to voicemail! Just because the phone rings, that does not mean you need to
answer it. If they leave a voicemail and it sounds suspicious, it probably
is suspicious!

Take every precaution and screening your phone calls! I did not know about
call protect until someone mentioned it on this list a while ago. I
downloaded the app. We will see how well it works. I do not currently get
many spam calls, but I do get a few and T-Mobile seems to protect me from
them. I always get a warning saying scam likely when those types of calls
come in.

If you think the phone call was intended for someone else, leave it alone. I’m
sure they will eventually call the person they intended to call if it is
legitimate.

Re: Old black variable-speed GE cassette recorders from the 70s?

Dave
 

Are you looking for one of the GE Talking Book Players?  Or are you
looking for a normal Cassette Recorder/Player that happens to have a
variable Speed control?


If you are looking for a Player that has a variable Speed Knob, there
are several brands that made those.  But if you are looking for a Four
Track Player with the two Tape Speeds, then that's a slightly different
question.


On Ebay, look for Cassette Player for the blind.  I have seen the older
players come up from time to time.  I think I've even seen one or two of
those older GE models.  Those where very good machines.


If you are looking for a normal Cassette player with the variable speed
control, then Superscope made a very nice one back in the day.  I think
Panasonic also made one.    And then of course, the GE one you
mentioned.  I think those were around in the late 1970's.  78?  79? 
76?  Some where in there.

Re: Where to share lessons we learn about scammer experience?

I agree. Screen your calls. If you do not recognize the phone number, let it go to voicemail. Even if you do and you answer the call, just pay attention and use common sense. I don’t mean to seem cynical, but how many of us are actually going to win a lot of money or a great prize? Are most of us ever that lucky? Life is challenging and most of us never win anything great.

Hi all,

Never, ever, give your SS. Number to anyone unless you know who they are and why they want it.

Also, if asked "Can you hear me now?" Do not answer "yes". Say anything else but not yes.

The IRS and places like that will never call you, they will send snailmail.

Oh, and if somebody tells you there's something wrong with your computer, bid them a good day and hang up.

Ask for proof. Think it through. I usually tell these kinds of people that if they send me snailmail, I'll consider what they're asking.

Screen your calls. If the caller ID gives you a number you don't recognize, then don't even answer the phone. If it's anybody important, they will leave a message. That's what voicemail is for.

Finally, when detecting spam, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If it sounds too bad to be true it probably is as well. Always keep in mind the Wizard's First Rule: people will believe anything at all so long as they either want it to be true or are afraid it might be true. Terry Goodkind

I almost got caught myself once. They told me they were from Publisher's Clearing House and that I had won $300,000.00 and a blue Mercedes Benz. It was nice to believe the guy for thirty seconds. <sigh> Oh, well.

experience?
Hi,
I had sort of a complicated, weird scamming experience. It wasn't just a
phone call I answered asking for crucial information. It went to voicemail,
saying something like danger at the South Texan border, and to speak with
Officer so-and-so for more info, press 1. I thought perhaps they called the
wrong number, that it was something someone else needed to know about, so I
tried calling them back. The number appeared to be for a business with the
prefix 877. The recorded voice asked me to participate in a survey, which I
didn't investigate completely the first time around.
Could that have triggered them to call again? The officer insisted that it
was the correct number, but I wanted to make sure. So he asked me for
information I thought he needed to check if I was listed on file. It wasn't
until afterI gave my social security number that I realized my big mistake!
I called my sister to discuss what to do. As we talked, her voice suddenly
became small and distant. She called me back, and she still sounded that
way. Later her husband called, and his voice sounded normal. They came
over to help me take steps for more protection. That evening I found a
message from her. It appeared that my bank had texted her, not me, saying
that my card was locked! She had suggested that the phone line had been
tapped, hence the change in sound. And by the way, I called that
business-type number and took the three-question survey. What I found was
something about getting a vacation!
I hope I've really learned my lesson. Never give out important personal
information, no matter how complicated and official the situation! Does
anyone know of a place where I can post this?
Thanks,

As for the greeting on my phone, I just have the standard greeting that came with my phone and my carrier. I see no need to change that right now. I don’t get that many scammers calling me and I figure it’s probably safer to just use the standard greeting provided by my phone and my carrier.

I don't know what your greeting says. If you want to tell us we can discuss it. If you don't want to make the information public because others can see e-mail messages and because it has information you don't want group members to see, then it shouldn't be in your greeting. My greeting only gives my first name and nothing else. It just says I'm sorry I can't take your call now but if you leave a message after the beep, I'll call you back.

You shouldn't have a message that you worry about strangers hearing.

I'm scared of what they can get from my greeting, just try to cut them off before it gets to VoiceMail.

Best regards,

If you get a phone call and you do not recognize the phone number, let it go to voicemail! Just because the phone rings, that does not mean you need to answer it. If they leave a voicemail and it sounds suspicious, it probably is suspicious!

Take every precaution and screening your phone calls! I did not know about call protect until someone mentioned it on this list a while ago. I downloaded the app. We will see how well it works. I do not currently get many spam calls, but I do get a few and T-Mobile seems to protect me from them. I always get a warning saying scam likely when those types of calls come in.

If you think the phone call was intended for someone else, leave it alone. I’m sure they will eventually call the person they intended to call if it is legitimate.

Just my thoughts,

Victor

Hi,
So, does anyone know about any list on this?
I'm interested on learning a bit more about audio edition with Sound Forge and  programs like this one, so a mailing list where I could ask and answer questions regarding this topic would come really in handy.

Thanks a lot.

Cheers,

Hi,

I’ve used the mac once back in 2013, Even then it wasn’t exclusively.

Where can I locate a mac tutorial which speaks from an accessibility perspective, meaning, using the keyboard.

Thank you,

I just use my first name.

It doesn't matter if you j8ust give your first name.  I wouldn't give my last name and I never or almost never hear that done.  Your first name isn't wo4rth anything to anyone.  I doubt your last name is either, but it identifies you more precisely as a specific person so I wouldn't use it.

On my iPbhone, I just identify my name and say leave a message. I guess I could just change and leave off my name.

As for our home one, it is neither Jim's nor my voice, but my son's, who lives 20 miles away in another town, another county.

Best regards,

Carolyn
