Hi,
I know the one that you are talking about. It is a straight metal piece that is placed on the Braille writer. The small edge on it goes face down, so it will remain straight. There is a clip at each end which holds the strip of dymo tape in place.
It is about $20 when I purchased it.
 
Blessings and All the Very Best,

Re: Request: Recommendations For Good High Capacity Router

DJ
 

I beg to differ.  I have the Orbi RBR-50 with two satellites and am currently only using one of the satellites.  These tow devices together are covering 4500 square feet with no degradation in performance.  I could spread them apart further but there is no need to do so.  The tri-band Orbi system is thought of as a mesh system except that it uses a private, third band for the devices to communicate on.

On 8/24/2019 6:38 PM, Cristóbal wrote:

Once you go mesh, you’ll never go back.

We’ve got an Ero mesh set up and it covers 3400 SQFT quite well.

If you’ve got or want a lot of connected devices, mesh is probably a better bet than a tri band router.

I refuse to pay my internet service provider rent for equipment.  I own my modem and router system and plan to keep it that way.  Service has never been so steady.  When I rented their equipment it always dropped and slowed.  There were always problems.  Not any more.

Re: Request: Recommendations For Good High Capacity Router

The Orbi system is a three-band system.  It has a 5 gigahertz band and a 2.4 gigahertz band for your devices to connect to.  It then uses a separate band to communicate exclusively with multiple Orbi systems you have set up.  There is absolutely no loss of network performance or speed with any of these devices.  When I used a conventional router from the store shelf my wifi speeds were 1/3 of the speed I was paying for and seeing when plugged directly into the router.  With the Orbi system, no matter which device I'm connected to at a given time, my internet speed is always exactly what wired computer says it is using speedtest.net.  I will never go back I assure you.

Hi DJ,

Sorry for the multiple posts, but here's another question. I see that Netgear has routers with both 2 and 3 bands.  The model you referenced has 2 bands.  something called the AC2200 has 3 bands.  What is the advantage of the 3 over the 2 if any?  Will older devices work with the 3 band versions?  The 3 band versions seem to be somewhat more expensive.

Again, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Request: Recommendations For Good High Capacity Router

The satellites are additional units which you can place in other locations as you already know.  You could set up the main router at one end, side, or corner of the home, and then place a satellite at the opposite end, side, or corner.  They communicate with each other through a wireless backhall channel and there is no loss of speed or performance.  You can set up the main router (RBR-50) and then press the sync bunnon on the router and satellite to connect both units.

I can't figure out how to select address for multiple bcc field entries. In wlm I just went down the list to select. I would think that this could be done in TB as well, just can't find where.
Well, you're right, it can be done :)
When you're writing your message, press Shift tab a few times until you can hear "From".
Now, press shift+tab one last time and you should hear "contacts".
From there, you can go through the contacts with up/down arrow, and select them by adding shift to the arrow (that is, shift+up/down arrow).
When you're done, press tab until you can hear "Add to BCC". Then, press spacebar on this button.
That's it :)

P.S.: You also have a search field just before "contacts" which you can reach if you keep shift tabbing.

Re: Performing a Word Count

 

Sharon,
Is there a way to perform a word count in a word processor other than Microsoft Office, using the latest versions of an application, with Narrator or NVDA?
Well, you can try this add-on, called Wordcount.

Addon to count elements of selected text

Use

This addon announces the number of words, characters, paragraphs and lines of the selected text by pressing Control+Shift+F12.
Note: In some applications, like Word, WordPad and DSpeech, it only announces word and characters, to avoid hanging NVDA.
In any text editor, or in a virtual document, for example in a web browser, PDF, email body, etc., select the desired text using the usual text selection commands and press Control+Shift+F12.
This command can be modified in the "Input gestures" dialog in the "Text editing" section.

Re: getting rid of blank lines in a word document

 

Hi Kimmsan 
This is the right way of removing blank lines in MS Word:
- Press Ctrl+h to open the find and replace dialog
- At the find what field, type ^p^p
- At the replace with field, type ^p
Press Alt+A to activate the replace all button. You'll see a message box tells that word has been made xx replacement, where xx the blank lines. Press enter, and Alt+A until you see 0 replacement
Note: sometimes word announce that it made 1 replacement, and after activating the replace all button afew time, it still announce the same. In this case, this maybe a blink line at the end of the file, and I don't know why it can't be replaced, so just press Esc afew tiem to exit any opening dkialog.

  1. Go to the top of the document.
  2. Press control + H.
  3. On the first text field type ^p^p. In this part is the difference. If you type ^p only, you will create a huge paragraph. However, when you are removing the 2 ends  of paragraphs together. You will not unify paragraphs.

If you don't place a space In the replace with field, I would think that where hard returns are removed, you will have sentences ending and the next sentence beginning on the same line without a space.  That wouldn't be a good idea and I suspect it will cause screen-readers to not pause properly at the end of sentences where this occurs.  Also, it will cause inflection not to be correct to indicate the end and start of a new sentence.

Yo Kimsan,

 

Try the following:

 

While in the document, press control+h to go into your Find & Replace dialogue.

 

In the Find field, type ^p .  Carat is, Shift + 6, on the number row then type the letter, p.

 

Leave the  Replacement field blank.

 

Tab to, Replace All, and press enter or, the shortcut keystroke is, Alt + A.

 

After a bit, word will tell you that it has made xxx replacements, xxx being the number of blank lines replaced.

 

 You should get an, OK button, so press the spacebar.  You're done.
 
You may still have some blank lines, but this is the easiest way I know of to get rid of a lot of blank lines at one time.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

How are you reading the file and what screen-reader are you using?  I don't know how to remove all hard returns from documents.  But a way that might be better might be to use the speech dictionary to temporarily not say the word blank. 

 

But no solution of any kind will be necessary if you use read to end in JAWS or NVDA.  Blank won't be spoken.  I'm not sure about Window-eyes.

Hi,

I’m reading a file where it says blank blank blank quite a bit.

What do I type in the find and replace dialog to get rid of those blanks and put spaces there?.

 

Thank you,

What I will recommend is similar to one of the suggestions below.

  1. Go to the top of the document.
  2. Press control + H.
  3. On the first text field type ^p^p. In this part is the difference. If you type ^p only, you will create a huge paragraph. However, when you are removing the 2 ends  of paragraphs together. You will not unify paragraphs.

Re: NVDA user looking for older working iTunes version

Hi Travis,
 
Here's a download link for a folder with several earlier iTunes installers.  I'm currently using 12.6.2 on Windows 7 without any problems.

Subject: [TechTalk] NVDA user looking for older working iTunes version


Hi,


The latest version of iTunes, 12.9.6.3, seems to be quite broken with
NVDA. Does anyone have any installers, or even version numbers for older
versions that work well? My problems come when using iTunes for PC,
Windows 10 64-bit by the way, with Apple Music. Loss of focus is the
norm, and it's hard to press the enter or spacebar on anything without
the program losing focus completely, most ofen sending me to the Windows
start menu search box.

Any help is appreciated. Older versions worked well enough, especially
ones from six months ago or older, but I didn't keep track of version
numbers..

Thanks.

Travis
