Re: Clearing a laptop

 

hi.
i would recommend you boot the laptop out of the windows 10 media and
do a clean install.
wipe each and every partition and rebuild.
this wont make impossible to recover data but if you reset windows it
keeps a windows.old folder on the c drive which has all of your data.

usually does, the files won't be accessible to the computer, but someone who
wants to spend a lot of money or with the right technical knowledge can
recover them. There are programs that actually overwrite the information
and make it unrecoverable. I'll let others discuss such programs further.

I am preparing a laptop for selling and have a couple of questions. It is
running Win 10 1809.

Will a reset choosing to remove data, be enough or do I have to do a full
clean install? If the latter, I have not done that before so, how difficult
is it?

Thanks for any advise.

Re: success with Fire Fox

Gene
 

I'm not sure what you are asking about searching.  Control is the command to move you to the address bar to type an address.  You don't need to make Google your home page if you just want to use it for searching and don't care what else is on the page.  Use the command control k and you will be in an area of the window where you type a search and press enter.  You can see, but I believe the default is to search using Google and a page of results will come up.  It will be a Google results page.  If it isn't, if it is something like a Bing results page, that can be changed to Google, but I'd have to look at Firefox to see how to change it.

            Hi Group:


I just wanted to thank you all for helping me with Fire Fox. It's
working great.  I had no trouble downloading and when I launched it, it
asked me if I wanted to make it my default browser and I clicked on it. 
I didn't have to do all of the things that I needed to do for chrome. 
It also reads Facebook just like IE. I'm thrilled about that.  I have
one more question, is there any settings that I need to know about?  I
am very simple.  I just enter web pages by typing in the addresses and I
don't use bookmarks.  I couldn't just hit Control L to search.  It
actually said where to search so I didn't have to type Control L.  Is
there any way I can get rid of that and I can just type it in as
normal?  I never had to set Chrome or IE so just wondered if this was
any different.  This is brand new to me.  Now for my final question,
what are the commands to make google my home page?  I tried the commands
in Chrome but it didn't work.  Thanks again for everything.

it is interesting that both chromeBook and iOS have great braille support outside of android apps of course, but that android phone and android tablet braille support are horrible. I use braille a lot, so iOS and windows are my platforms of choice for braille. I started unloading apps off my android phone because I find most times their iOS equivalents work better for me. a few apps I keep on my android phone though, just for convenience. 


Re: Think Twice Before Installing the Latest Windows 10 Update

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

Or depending on what you do with your computer, maybe just get an iPad for $250 off amazon? I got an iPod touch and find that voiceover is much more stable and snappier than talkback is. So my android phone will be just for phone calls, texting, maybe facebook and messenger and I will use the iPod for everything else including games.

Re: Clearing a laptop

Hi. I did it about a year ago. Are you using 1903? If so, do the following.
Go to settings.
Go to update and security.
From there, go to recovery.
Tab to reset this pc. Press enter, follow the prompts and all should work fine.

Re: Chromebook help

FYI. Mystic access just did an excellent, free class on using the chrome
book. It's called "a world of chromebooks", and is available on their
website at:
www.mysticaccess.com. Go to their free downloads link. They are also in the
process of producing a full-fledged tutorial covering the chrome book. This
will be available on September 16. If you've ever used their tutorials you
will know they are very well done.

I purchased an acer chrome book last week. It has 4 gig of ram, which is
standard, and 64 gig of storage. It's kind of cool. I'm not sure if I'll
ever replace my windows pc with one, but they're great to have as they are
light and easy to toss in an overnight bag while travelling. Aside from
surfing the net and email, you can do word processing, spread sheets and
slide presentations using the google suite. Also, some of the android apps
will run on them. I have already installed Netflix, spotify and dolphin easy
reader.

2. is there a guide that compares voice over jestures with that of talkback?
3. is there a guide that tells us about different voiceover jestures?
4. can you recomend podcasts or mailing lists to learn more about voiceover.

Hello Michael:

You wrote:

"my budget is 200/300, I wouldn't mind spending a little bit more than
that."

My apologies for delayed response. Please laugh with or at me for a bit. I
got my fingers stuck in this and that as I keep practicing how best to RUN
LATE to my own funeral as if I'd know whether or not I am being stuck in the
ground or fed to the ... Anyhow, based on the foregoing, I would suggest
you take a hard look at a mid-range toy in the Android ecosystem. This way,
if it doesn't work for you, you wouldn't have spent too many pennies and
farthings.

For a start, I would recommend the Nokia 6.1; this one will get Android 10
soon. Android 10 got out of beta today and was officially released to the
public albeit still on Pixel phones for now. I have heard that the 1Plus
toys welcomed the new OS today. HMD which manufactures and sells Nokia on
the Android platform has promised an upgrade for the 6.1, 7.1 and its
related other cousins. Please check it out here:

https://www.amazon.com/Nokia-6-1-Unlocked-Smartphone-T-Mobile/dp/B07B4KPFKM

Whilst at it, you may also want to check out the Nokia 7.1 as well.

Now and then, I do see flagship toys selling for 300 & a quarter dollars,
but one must HUNT THEM DOWN immediately before they are gone! Looks like
Google will let you trade-in an iPhone and get the Pixel 3A FOR AROUND $149.
Reportedly, this one will get up to six Android updates. The Google Store
will most certainly have some better info than I have been able to share
here.

You also wrote:


As far "as what I'm looking for in a phone, could you be a little more
specific?"

It appears you did a better research than what I was thinking; As I read in
this space, I see folks plunging into the Android world without doing a lot
of digging. So my question is irrelevant.

You further wrote:

"Yes I'm ready for a learning curve. I am thinking of making the swich
because I find the I Phones are slowing down faster,and Android is much more
customisable. Yes I love tinkering with new things."

It's grand to know that you are a tinkerer like me. My biggest problem is
that I don't document what I do; I do achieve results and when I don't, I
back track and try again. I should command Olusegun's silly fingers to stop
and write down something during their tinkering processes. It might take me
a trillion weeks to get there with my excitement when it comes to tinkering.


Yes, customization is huge in Android Land; the fact that I can throw any
TTS of my own choosing at my screen reader is a big plus! If Braille is a
huge necessity, Android is only there in bits and pieces; some sweet day, it
will dawn on the Talkback team to get cranking. All that aside, some folks
have reported being able to use their Braille notetakers with their toys
without a glitch. I'm an avid Braille reader, but I don't have a good
Braille device toy to interface with my Shiny Android toys presently.

I hope the foregoing is somewhat helpful; there are more brilliant folks who
play with so many mid-range Android toys on an Android mailing list that
DOES NOT TIE THE HANDS in front of one's chest; traffic will be high, but NO
HOLES BARRED! No moderation, everyone is an adult, and we treat each other
with respect. Will share more info should you wish to cross that bridge.
Also, please take a good look at:

www.inclusiveandroid.com

This site is pieced together by the community, has a plethora of information
about Android including demos of apps. The community doesn't update it on a
regular basis, but the general basics are largely the same.

Re: Fluctuating Recording Volume

Gene
 

I should also say that I was assuming this effect is on Sound Recorder Pro.  It could be in the Braille Note as well.  I don't know if it might process sound when you run an app or if it leaves that completely to the app.  Though I would think it would leave it completely to the app, I don't want to assume it.

I don't know what such a filter is called but it is lowering the volume when you are recording a quiet passage and raising it when you are recording a loud passage.  That is to keep out extraneous sound.  Evidently, that is the default setting and the default is ridiculous.  A loud passage w8ill cover up extraneous sound.  A soft passage will allow much more of it to be heard. 
 
If you look through the app settings, does anything appear to match my description?
 
My laptop soundcard has such a setting and I turned it off.

I use Sound Recorder Pro on my BrailleNote Touch plus running Android 8. I've noticed that the volume in my recordings fluctuates. Is there a setting I can tweak to keep this from happening?

Here's a Dropbox link to a recording I made earlier with this app. It's not bad, but you'll definitely notice the change in volume. With this recording, I used a headset with an in-line microphone, but I've noticed the same behavior with the device's external mic. This leads me to believe there must be a setting I can change. Any ideas?
