Re: Fluctuating Recording Volume

Abbie Taylor
 

I realized today that the problem with my headset with in-line microphone is that it only works with devices like my cell phone that only have one jack. My BrailleNote Touch Plus has two separate jacks for a headset and a microphone. I don't have a microphone.

I may try the Bluetooth headset again. What I meant to say about that is the sound quality isn't as sharp as that of the device's built-in mic, but it might be better than fluctuating volume. Thanks for all your help.

Polaris Mini File Transfers

Joe Orozco
 

Hello,

I recently purchased a Polaris Mini off someone. I’m having trouble
transferring data between the Polaris Mini and my PC. Even though the
cable seems to charge the Polaris, the PC is not recognizing the
device as an external hard drive; therefore, I am unable to transfer
files. He did not send me the original cable, but while I’ve heard of
some cables being unable to charge a device due to insufficient
wattage, I’ve never heard of one that will not, at the very least,
transfer data. Even the cheap ones should do that, and the cable he
provided is not a cheap one. Is there a setting in the Polaris I need
to toggle to be able to use it as a mass storage device?

Another annoying issue I’ve noticed is that when I attempt to put the
Polaris to sleep while connected to the PC, it says I cannot enter
into sleep mode. It goes to sleep anyway, but then, when turned back
on, it won’t allow me to use the left scroll buttons unless I
completely reboot the device.

Sorry, I’ve tried reading through the user manual, but HIMS does a
pretty terrible job about explaining such things. Any help would be
very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Joe

Thank you so much for all of your help.  I definitely like Fire Fox much better than Chrome.  It reads a lot better as well.  Again, thank you for everything.

Control k moves you to an edit field where you type the search.  When you press enter, the results page comes up.  But that isn't the page you want as your home page.  That is the page with the specific results of your search.
 
Go to the Google home page in the usual way.  I'll tell you what to do next later today, after I've looked at the procedure.  But you may decide you want another home page because you can type a search after the command control k.  So having Google as a home page would seem to be largely redundant.

            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.

Can you highlight and copy the contents of that e-mail and paste it
into a new email and try to send it out to your list? The remote
server may not like forwarded messages, sending it out directly from
your email account may pass the spam filter.

Safe Mode and Start Options

Howdy All,
 
I'm wanting to get to, Startup options, on a Dell computer running Windows 10.  The computer had a snafoo while updating one of the 1903 versions and I want to find the start option using the last known good configuration.  I can get into safe mode tapping the, F2 key, while the computer is booting up, but my wife didn't see the start options.  Do I need to tap a different key or, are the start options in amongst the other safe mode options?  If anyone has other suggestions please let me know.  All help will be greatly appreciated and graciously accepted.  Thanks much.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

Re: Fluctuating Recording Volume

Gene
 

Since it isn’t a USB device, there wouldn’t be any settings to adjust for it.  You might want to call support for the Braille Note and see if they can tell you anything.  I don’t know how you might get support for the app.  Do you just have a microphone, such as you would use for a tape recorder to test with?

The headset microphone plugs into a headset jack. In the Sound Recorder Pro settings, when selecting a mic, it comes up as unprocessed. That could be part  of the problem. USB headsets don't work with  this device.

Re: Fluctuating Recording Volume

You said the sound is tinny.  But that isn’t the same as the severe volume attenuation you demonstrated in your sample.  Do you get the same attenuation or is the sound tinny?  The volume attenuation you demonstrated is to remove ambient noise and present only the sound, meant for use with speech.

It behaves the same way whether I use the headsetwith in-line microphone or the external mic. I've tried a Bluetooth headset, but the sound is tinny. There's no other filter, and the only other settings have to do with sampling rate, mono-stereo, and silence skipping options.

reading large emails on iPod touch

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

Earlier today I got the braille monitor magazine. A big email. I tried reading it and the iPod touch said due to a repeated problem the email could not be displayed. I had to use safari with the gmail website and read it instead. Is this an apple mail bug? I am running iOS 12.4 the latest version. iOS13 is not out yet.

JAWS will read whatever is on screen, something has to open the .PDF in
order for JAWS to read it. If this .PDF came as an attachment in OUTLOOK
then you may have some type of preview feature that gives you a peek at the
attachment. If your viewing this in a browser than the browser may have some
type of PDF viewer, However, When I view your newsletter in Adobe Acrobat it
renders more accurately then the example you attached in your message.
That's why I suggested downloading and installing Adobe Acrobat reader, it's

When I read the message as a text message, I see long links. I pasted
one to the clipboard, removed the less than sign at the beginning and
greater than sign at the end and then followed the link. I was taken

my PDF reader but the newsletter may be nothing or almost nothing but
links to PDF files. But if you tell us what you see, it would make it
easier to know if there are other ways to look at the information.



When I looked at the message as an HTML file, I saw a number of links
that said image removed by sender. These links evidently are links
you can follow as you would a standard link in an e-mail message. You

a peek at the attachment. If your viewing this in a browser than the
browser may have some type of PDF viewer, However, When I view your
newsletter in Adobe Acrobat it renders more accurately then the
example you attached in your message. That's why I suggested
downloading and installing Adobe Acrobat reader, it's the industry
standard for reading .PDF files and it's free.

Gene,

I see several long links.

How does one access the clipboard in MS ten?

What do you see when you look at the message?



When I read the message as a text message, I see long links. I pasted one
to the clipboard, removed the less than sign at the beginning and greater
than sign at the end and then followed the link. I was taken to a PDF file,
which I saved. It read correctly when I opened it in my PDF reader but the
newsletter may be nothing or almost nothing but links to PDF files. But if
you tell us what you see, it would make it easier to know if there are other
ways to look at the information.



When I looked at the message as an HTML file, I saw a number of links that
said image removed by sender. These links evidently are links you can
follow as you would a standard link in an e-mail message. You can see where
they lead. Whatever is in the images that are part of the links, images of
text, pictures, etc. will not be readable by the screen-reader and you will
have to decide if it is worth using the JAWS OCR function to see if you can
get access to any possible images of written material

saving email attachments on iPod or iPad

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

 

I got an email attachment that was a zip file. Is there a way to unzip it and read its contents on an iPod touch? I tried sharing the zip file with the files app but it would not let me save it to “this iPod.” The zip file I found out when I saved it in windows, was password protected anyway so I emailed the person asking for a plain zip file.

I would like to know, because I think if I could do some more advanced stufff with the iPod like saving files to it from sendspace, that if my windows machine died, I could use an iPod or iPad as my main laptop until I purchased another windows machine. Voiceover has great Bluetooth keyboard support and braille display support at least it does on iOS, as I have found. I just got a 32gig iPod touch 7th generation because I wanted to see how I liked the latest iOS. So far it is excellent. I like the vo-q command which turns on a second website quick nav so I can navigate by headings and things just by pressing letters on the Bluetooth keyboard. iOS is a very easy simple platform to learn, google android should take some queues from iOS in how it does things and update talkback so its easy like iOS, is.

 

Josh
