Re: review of Smart Vision II phone

Victor
 

I agree. It sounds like a great phone with a lot of promise. However, I hope the company that makes it will consider marketing it to the cited world as I think many sighted people would still appreciate having a phone with a keyboard in addition to the touchscreen. It’s nice that this phone gives the user both options. Companies that make products specifically for the blind have a hard time surviving. But I think this company could market the phone to the world at large and stand a better chance of prospering. If they do that, maybe they would be able to lower the price a bit.

Just my thoughts,

Victor

Ann, this sounds like a really neat phone. After reading your review, I'm thinking about getting one, but I have some questions. I'm assuming you're using Cricket as your phone carrier. I wonder if this device would work with Verizon and how I would go about setting it up. 

Does the manual come built into the phone or in hard copy print in the box?

I'm not familiar with smart phones, so I'm wondering if it's possible to make calls from your home wireless network so you're not using up data. I'd appreciate any answerers.

an amazon alexa question

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I use the box fan virtual sleep sound on my second gen amazon dot at night, and it doesn't happen that often but once in a while the sound will stop in the middle of the night and when I ask alexa to start the sound again she'll tell me that she's having trouble and to try a little later. It's usually not that long before it starts working again but the most recent time this happened, one day last week, I couldn't make things work again for at least a half hour. Also, when this happened recently I tried the command on my echo and got the same response.

Also, if I try to listen to a baseball game using siriusXM through my echo, just about every time I've tried it this year the game never plays completely and instead ends up stopping somewhere in the middle to late innings. Incidentally I get the same response here that I do when I ask for the sleep sound to start again, Alexa tells me that she's having problems and to try again later. Does anybody know if either or both of these problems could be wifi related? I've been tempted to call my cable provider which is where I get my internet service from, and see if they can tell from their end if I'm having occasional wifi problems and if they think changing out the router would help but I haven't done that yet since I don't know if they can tell anything until it actually happens, and I never know when the problem will crop up.

Re: Thoughts on Orbit 20

Joe Orozco
 

Thank you for that perspective!

If I may add another question, how great is the Orbit at productivity?
I understand it is not a full notetaker, but part of the reason I'm
interested is to do some writing while on my commute. I don't mind
that it will only produce plain text. I like the portability of it,
but I do want to make sure that it is easy enough to transfer text
files between the Orbit and a PC for more advanced word processing.

Thanks again!

I think the Orbit is solid, bluetooth works well, but the lack of routing

have adjusted. There's something about being able to immediately jump to a

it's pretty good though.

Re: can't read bard books on second gen Victor reader

Troy Burnham
 

Apparently I was trying to authorize my player with the wrong key, likely the key from my first generation Victor which I don't have anymore, because I contacted Humanwear this morning and they mailed me the correct key and I was able to authorize with that. Btw I got rid of the old key and saved the new one so I won't try to use the wrong one again should I need to authorize again in the future.

Subject: [TechTalk] review of Smart Vision II phone

Morning all,

Smart Vision II Phone

At the beginning of July, I purchased a Smart Vision II phone
from Irie-AT. This phone is designed for blind or visually impaired
users. It is an android phone which has a touch screen and a keypad
for operation, or you can speak to it, as one can with any android
phone. You can check it out at the link below. There, you will find
its specs and so on.

https://irie-at.com/product/smartvision2-2/

I have spent the last month learning about this phone, and I
have to say the journey's been pleasant and enlightening. I had some
help getting the phone set up, but once it was set-up, I have had fun
learning how to use it.
This phone is made in France by the Kapsys Company. It comes
in two versions, the basic and the premium. The basic model costs
$600.00 and the premium costs $900.00. These figures have been rounded
up to the nearest hundred dollars. The difference between them is that
the Premium features some extra apps like their book reader, their GPS
program or the color identifier. One can upgrade the phone at any time
by adding these programs.
The Smart Vision can work with apps downloaded from the Android
App Store. I have, in fact, downloaded and am using the BARD Mobile
app. It works well. I haven't tried many apps, but I have made and
received both phone calls and texts on my phone. I have set alarms
and I have tried the reminder feature. I am still learning this phone.
I love the keypad on the Smart Vision II because it has actual
buttons which I can push. I get feedback when I push these buttons
too. I can operate the phone exclusively with the keypad if I want, or
I can use the touch screen. There are commands which can be used from
the keypad to access various aspects of the phone. I love being able
to control my phone with buttons. Perhaps I am old fashioned, but I
have found that using the keypad assures me that what I have pressed is
actually pressed and I like being in control this way.
The keypad can be used to write text, much as one uses
a flip-phone. One can switch between caps, numbers and normal entry.
This is excellent if one needs to correct the Google Assistant's
interpretation of one's voiced dictation.
I have found the Google Assistant to be responsive and
usually it interprets my dictation correctly. It seems to work, as I
haven't received any complaints from people to whom I've sent texts.
A word here about Irie-AT's tec support. This is
excellent! The folks at the help desk are friendly and responsive and
helpful. The Smart Vision II is set up with an app called Team Viewer.
This enables the tech folks to log onto your Smart Vision II and help
you make changes to your phone's set-up. They helped me to log into
Google and to get set up with email and all. They were friendly and
what's more, they were knowledgeable! They knew exactly how to help
and what to do. I was impressed.
I will continue to learn about my new phone and have
fun doing so. The only thing I wish could be changed was to have a
braille version of the command list from the manual. The manual
doesn't have a command list as part of itself. I would really love to
have a command list, preferably in braille to which I could refer when
needed. I can search through the manual for the various locations of
lists of commands, but having a summary would make the manual perfect.
If that summary were available in braille, that would be, as the kids
say, awesome. Otherwise, I have found the Smart Vision II to be a good
choice for my needs and a fun learning experience.

Hi,

The apple iPhone7, iPod touch, and iPad all have the a10 chip, while the iPhone xr and iPad air have the a12 chip. As a blind person who won’t be doing a lot of video transcoding and stuff, is there a difference? Would I notice a speed difference between an iPod touch, and an iPad air which uses the a12 chip? Or is the a10 chip still plenty fast to run voices such as the most demanding voice, the apple alex voice?

Re: can't read bard books on second gen Victor reader

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

He doesn't have to do that. It's not a new device, he's just deleted his keys. He needs to call HW, not BARD. If people are smart, when they authorize a new player, they should keep the blessed file that you download in the event of something happening just like this. What did Mad-Eye Moody say? "Constant vigilance! Constant vigilance!" <smiling>

Ann P.





Original message:

Recently Bard has been monitoring the number of devices you have activated
on your account. The limit is five devices but for a long time they have not
enforced the rule. When you did the reset, you wiped out the authorization
on the stream and you may be over their limit. So you need to contact Bard
again and see if you can get them to delete older devices which you no
longer use.
I ran into this issue when I purchased a new IPod.

Subject: [TechTalk] can't read bard books on second gen Victor reader
Hi all,
A few days ago I did a factory reset on my second generation Victor
reader to see if that might help it start faster, a friend of mine had
to reset his and told me to hold down the 2, 6 and 8 keys and then hit
the power button so that's what I did. Everything went well until after
I put in the info to access bard, and I can download bard books but when
I try to listen to the book I get the message that I'm not authorized to
read this protected book. I get this on both newly downloaded books and
on ones that were previously downloaded and are on my sd card. The
message told me to contact my library which I have done, but the person
I talked to at my state library told me to call Humanwear and I haven't
been able to get in touch with them yet. I also pasted my user key back
into the root of the sd card without success.
This is the second Victor reader I've had because I also had the first
generation machine years ago, and it's possible that I pasted the wrong
key because I don't know if I ever got rid of the key from my old first
generation machine. My first question then is how do I get my machine to
give me the serial number so I can compare it to the one that is in the
key I pasted, and assuming it was the right key that I pasted does
anybody know anything else I can try to get the bard books to read again?
Thanks.
Troy

Hi all,

Did you remember to keep the key you downloaded from HW when you first got the Stream? If not, you'll have to call HW and sit through the musac till they can send you a link to download the key again. Don't leave messages, sit through the musac. Fold clothes or brush the dog or unload the dishwasher. Put your phone on speaker. They will answer eventually.

I started from what 's called "this pc" which must be the same as windows explorer or file explorer.  When I was at the microsoft stare, I must have gotten something called "word editor for windows 10" because that's the first one on the "open with" list of programs.  next choice is MS store, then more apps.  choosing more apps then gives me a list of local programs.  After choosing a program, you can tab to a checkbox that says something like  "do this for all files of this type".  I try not to check that one in case I change my mind later.

I can tell you how to open Docx files in Wordpad.  This isn't the way to make it do so permanently, but try this and see what happens.  I can tell you a permanent way in Windows 7 and you can probably do so in Windows 10.  But for now, try the following:
When you are on the file in Windows Explorer, open the context menu. 
Type the letter h.  That will open the open with dialog.
Up or down arrow, whichever you want, through the programs.  Wordpad should be one.  Downarrowing will likely get you to it faster.
Press enter and the file will open in Wordpad.
 
I'll see what I can find out about the compatibility pack but I'm going into the other method now because you may want to open a file in a different program than you usually do at some time.  For example, at times, I want to open an MP3 file in Windows Media Player rather than in Winamp.

If you want the pack, I can look into where to download it.  Even if you don't work with Docx files often, it still is a good idea to be able to open and read them.

Also, There is a Microsoft compatibility pack that, once you install it, allows you to do so in earlier versions of Word.  Once you install the pack, you can also open Docx files in JARTE. 
 
If you want the pack, I can look into where to download it.  Even if you don't work with Docx files often, it still is a good idea to be able to open and read them.

Hello David et al,

This tutorial is a docx file which I can't get to open in anything.  Can someone please convert it to an ASCII text and send it to me?  Thanks.

Hi Howard!

Here is an up-to-date word file of my Chrome tutorial.

This has headings, and is much more up to date and easy to navigate, because it has headings.

I will put a direct Drop Box link right below.

This will help you a lot!

Here is the download link to the tutorial:

Anybody know where I can find a "getting started" tutorial for Google

Chrome?  I have one done by (I think) David Moore but it's a little old

and my installation of Chrome doesn't work like he describes.

 

 

Thanks.
