Re: email lists for discussing old access technology?

Dave
 

Hello,


Your post sure brought back a few memories.


I started taking Computer Classes in the late 1970's, and at that time,
Radio Shack had just released their Model 1 Home Computer. Nothing
Talked yet, but I was eagerly awaiting such a thing to be invented.


had to wait until the early 1980's before someone made a basic screen
reader for the Radio Shack Model 3 and 4 systems.  TRSDOS anyone
remember that?   Ha ha!


Crude and Limited by today's standards but those early Systems really
opened some doors for me, and still do today.


All of those Synthesizers, Drivers and all the Headaches getting them to
work, also brings back a few memories.


Those voices of the old Echo GP, very Robotic, but once you acquired an
Ear for how it spoke, it became my favorite until I managed to purchase
a real Deal Deck Talk Card.


In some ways, I still Miss using MS Dos.  Programs were smaller, but
better written, as those programs had limited resources to use while
operating.


And then along came MS Windows 3.1.   Life has never been quite the same
since.


I do recall a program that was actually better than MS Windows. It was
called Geo-Works.  And it too allow the operation of more than one
program at the same time.   it was much faster, and a lot less intrusive.


But, Microsoft had the Market Share for MS Dos, and who ever produced
Geo-Works never had a chance.


Since then Computers have gotten a lot faster, and the operating Systems
are a lot more Complicated.   But, many of the tasks and concepts are
still the same as they were back in the good ol' days of DOS.  But the
tasks have changed names several times and how to do those tasks have
also changed several times too.


Seems there is always the need to relearn what you once thought you
knew, but to keep up with the latest stuff, you again need to Re-learn
the same stuff but now its different!


And if I didn't have the use of a Computer, I don't know what I would
do.  So much of my daily life is spent sitting in front of a System
doing work, and then recreation after work.


Computers, hate them of Love them, but today it's hard to be without one.

jaws and NVDA with decTalk access32

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

I see decTalk supports, its one of the very few synthesizers that supports generating all kinds of tones and stuff. So if we ever got it working with jaws, it would be cool to take advantage of decTalk’s tone features for example… decTalk tones could let you know where the mouse is on the screen, whether an error has occurred, and you could even use tones and different touch tones to let you know about checkboxes and the state of various buttons and things as you navigate windows. Eloquence and the modern synthesizers don’t have all the interesting capabilities decTalk has, or it seems like it doesn’t anyway. Oh and I also read that the decTalk express worked with keysoft version 2.4 for windows 3.1 and windows95. I wonder what sort of tones and things keysoft had the decTalk generate? Also, is there a way to extract the decTalk dll from the best speak window ever, the version 4.3 of decTalk in order to use it as a tts for NVDA or jaws 2019?

email lists for discussing old access technology?

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

Are there any active email lists for discussing old access technology? As in access technology in computers from say, 2005 on back to 1970 or 1960 or so? I’d like to find a list where decTalk, softVoice tts, windows 3.1, 95, 98, 2000, the early xp days, asap screen reader for dos, etcetera, can be discussed. This includes old synthesizers such as accent, appollo2, doubletalk, multiVoice, text-assist, decTalk and its various speak windows applications which I did get working with jaws in windows10, and more. To use the decTalk speak windows you have to turn on the jaws legacy accessibility drivers in your default jaws configuration under miscellaneous in the jaws settings center. Then the speak windows work and you can click the different graphics with the jaws cursor. I wish jaws would add drivers for:

softVoice tts, bring back decTalk access32, and add a sam driver and would support the old orpheus2 synthesizer which NVDA currently supports through an addon.

Recovery Drive Creation.

George Zaynoun
 

Hi!
I wonder if I go into control panel in Windows10 and create a recovery drive from there, does it take with it the existing screen readers or not? What is the difference between this method and using the original let us say HP Recovery software or original Toshiba Recovery software? The computers we purchase here in Sweden have 5 languages when unboxed: English UK, Swedish, Danish, Finnish and Norwegian Bokmal alongside the bloat software that follows and if I miss step 1 choosing a wrong language during first time setup I cannot return back to step 1 at all to change it, HP says that they don't ship recovery software from 2018, please enlighten me on this how to create original recovery software; thanks

Leaving Comments on Youtube?

Dave
 

Hello,


I use Jaws and NVDA.  From time to time, I would like to leave a Comment
after listening to a Video on Youtube.


What seems obvious to do, does not work.  And so far, I have not been
able to find a way into the Edit Box, to write a Comment.  If someone
else has figured out how to do this, would you please explain how you do
it.


Either it is impossible using a Screen Reader, or I am just not
understanding the steps needed to accomplish leaving comments.


Thanks in advance,

Subject: [TechTalk] ISO - Info on cooling devices for Multiple Sclerosis

 

Greetings,

I am posting this "information request" for my wife, who is not blind, though I am. The subject is technology related, as the group owner told me in a private messege I had sent, and therefore, the group owner has allowed me to ask the question on this list. If you have any information pertaining to this subject (URLs, companies, etc, you can post them to the list or send them to me privately at:

ks.steinbach03@...

With all that said, here is my question:

My wife has Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It is a neurological disease which causes the nerves in the body to become

de-insulated. This causes nerve signals to "misfire" and can cause lack of motor function, lack of fine motor skills, problems or an inability to walk, fatigue, vision problems, speech issues, cognitive or thought issues and/or difficulties, etc. She is on a medication to hopefully curb the increase in symptoms or the progression of the disease, but we will see. My father died due to complications of the same disease and my sister has the sub-type my wife has as well.

Keeping the body's temperature "cool" and reducing stress are very important to a person with MS. We do not go out in the heat (we live in southern Illinois in the USA) where the average summer temperature can be about 20 degrees F higher than it is nearer to Chicago in the north portion of the state.

She is dilligently scouring Facebook groups, online information sites and following and keeping track of MS associations and groups here in the USA and in other countries.

Now, here is where I may be going off kilter a bit, but I am wondering if a device which I will describe below exists:

I used to be an avid "battletech" follower. It is a science fiction role-playing game, novel series, and video game series. The premise of the game/novels/video games is that a human driver or pilot (also called a Mechwarrior) sits and pilots a gigantic human shaped robot, powered by a fusion reactor. Everything the robot, or Mech, as they are called in game) does, causes heat to build up. If too much heat is generated, the Mech will either shut down or it has a chance to explode. Moving, jumping, firing weapons, etc causes a Mech to built up heat. I had the thought that the same occurs in a human being, whether that person has MS or not. That is why we sweat when we get hot. It is the way the human body reduces heat and cools itself.

My wife told me that road workers, and other occupations dealing in hot sunny weather sometimes wear vests which have a series of pockets that flexible ice packs or cooling packs that can be put in the ice box or freezer to recool, are standard issue.

In the Battletech world, the Mechwarriors wear "cooling vests". The difference between the ones worn by the Mechwarriors and the road workers is that the Mechwarriors's vests have a cooling gel that is hooked up to the power supply inside the mech and the gel is then cooled by the vehicle's cooling system. The vest is typically described, in photos in text descriptions, as covering the shoulders, the back the front and the flanks of the wearer. The cooling gel inside these vests keep the Mechwarriors from literally cooking to death inside the Mech.

I am wondering if anyone has seen or heard of such a device in the modern world. Of course, it would either have to be a vest similar to the ones worn by road workers but the whole vest could be put in the freezer to cool, but not be so bulky that it would look like you are the Stay puff marshmallow man from the Ghostbusters movies.

Or, some sort of battery opperated or battery charged device that would have a generator or device on it that could cool the gel inside the vest.

My wife has fallen several times (at work, home, and in public places such as the store, at her nephew's baseball games, etc). Not due to being feint, she was fully conscious but rather because the nerves in her body got over heated and she was not able to stay upright. Me, being a blind person, could only call for help and accompany my wife and the paramedics to the hospital in the ambulance (as I cannot drive).

If anyone knows of other cooling devices that we could look at or possibly try, I would be greatly and totally appreciative of your knowledge.

Thank You,

Keith Steinbach

Re: Find & Replace Query

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
I thought you might want to see how this was done, so below is my question, the answer and below the answer are my steps for doing this Find & Replace
task.
 
 Original Message 
From: Mike B
Hi All,
 
Running Windows 7 & 10, Jaws 16 thru J2019 and Word 2010.  When in either Word or Notepad, I have 10 lines of text that all say the same except for the
numbers at the beginning are different.  Examples below:
 
88% of FunTrivia players have answered this question correctly in the past.
 
75% of FunTrivia players have answered this question correctly in the past.
 
91% of FunTrivia players have answered this question correctly in the past.
 
Is there a wildcard symbol that can be used that I can insert in place of the numbers, so when placing the full line of text into the, Find field, then
putting nothing into the, Replace field, and choosing, Replace All, all the lines would be removed including the numbers?  All help will be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
From: Brian Vogel
Mike,
 
 I do not think this works in Notepad, but it absolutely does in MS-Word (and I just tested it using your example).
 
 You must use Advanced find and replace and you must check the checkbox for "Use Wildcards" after hitting the "More" button in the Find & Replace dialog
to make that checkbox visible.
 
 Using the following in the find field:       ([0-9]{1,}%)*^13
 
will find any line starting with one or more numeric digits, followed immediately by a percent sign, followed by any number of characters, followed by
a new line/new paragraph.
 
If you use nothing (leave blank) the replacement it will remove the lines.
 Brian
 
Mike's steps:
1. While in Word press, Control + H, to open the Find & Replace dialogue.
 
2. In the, Find field, copy / paste the string of text below:
 
([0-9]{1,}%)*^13
 
And do not put anything into the, Replace field.
 
 Using the above string of text in the find field will find any line starting with one or more numeric digits, followed immediately by a percent sign,
followed by any number of characters, followed by
a new line/new paragraph.
 
3. With the above string of text pasted into the, Find field, press, Alt + M, to select / open the, Replace with more button.
You can also tab from the Find field to the Replace with More button and activate it with the spacebar.
 
4. Now press, Alt + U, to check / select the, Use Wildcards, checkbox.
You can tab to this checkbox also, after activating the Replace with More button and it takes several tabs to get there.
 
5. Now press, Alt + A, to activate the, Replace All, button.  When finished Jaws should report how many replacements there were and now press Escape to
exit the Find & Replace dialogue.
 
Note:  These steps will only work for the lines of text I give as examples in my email above.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

Re: set top boxes again.

hi again Olusegun, I do not have an android tv box as yet, this is why I was asking the talkback question. The set top box I'm looking at is quite an expensive Item, and I would not like to purchase the Box and not know if is accessible to visually impaired folks.
I have done google searches, but nothing clear regarding speech accessibility on android tv boxes.
Thought some list members had experience in the use of these boxes, but looks like I am out of luck, but thanks for taken the time to get back to me.

*Subject:* [TechTalk] tv boxes?
hi guys, Hope this question is all right for this list.
Does anyone use an Android set top box?.
I'm thinking of purchasing one of these boxes. At the moment I have an
amazon firestick, which works pretty well, but have been informede the
Android boxes are much better, and very accessible to visually impaired
folks, as Talkback speech can be installed on these boxes.
Why I'm asking here is I want someone using such a beast to tell me the
best Android box to buy.
Any help would be apreciated Indeed.
