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.

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.

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
the industry standard for reading .PDF files and it's free.

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.

In this case, No, This is a case of document formatting. Just like there's a difference in a notepads .txt file and wordpads .rtf file and a MS Word .docx file, PDF is it's own special file type which requires a PDF reader, most commonly used is the Adobe Acrobat reader and it's free. The reader adds an addon to your browser to automatically read PDF files as you come across them or you can read a PDF offline with it's stand alone program.

I don't think that is a link to a webpage, I believe it's somehow
being reported as a link to a webpage, but it may just be a link to a graphic.
You need to view this newsletter as a PDF document using something
like Adobe Acrobat reader either as a addon for a browser or as a
standalone program. If you try one of the options I posted last night
you should be able to get this information I'll post it below, but
I'll cut off the bottom of the newsletter because it's a very long
list of acknowledgements of donors to their program.
If you have any trouble installing Adobe Acrobat, let us know and
we'll help you get that done.

Blaster

Here's the newsletter:
Fresh and Engaging:
Towers New Kosher Dining Service and Program August 2019 TI-IE TOWERS
AT lOWEN LANE 0'
I +- 141
.;Evt THE TOWERS AT TOWER LANE
iothipgatori,t4._
Tim Smith, Regional Director of Operations for Morrison 42.
We are delighted to announce that Morrison has joined the Towers team
to transform and enhance our dining experience. Food is the focal
point of a much wider experience that is educational and social.
Morrison will bring food to life to enrich the lives of our seniors
every day through many new initiatives. There is much to look forward
to. Our community will enjoy a teaching kitchen that will bring
residents together under the tutelage of executive chefs to learn the
"how to's" of preparing a dish, food history, health benefits and
chef tips. Super-foods of the month, seasonally chosen, will provide
an extra nutritional punch and educate on the power of food. Through
the Heirloom program, we will get to share family recipes and
histories with one another to be prepared for and shared with the
entire community. Our new display kitchen will dazzle the senses as
guests enjoy the smells, sights and sounds of our chefs working their
magic. With dining events that are current and fulfilling, everyone
at The Towers can make wonderful emotional connections while enjoying tasty and healthy meals.
Tim Smith, Regional Director of Operations for Morrison, explained
that building strong relationships is what sets Morrison apart. He
enjoys the fact that the company is forward thinking, delivering a
dining program that is outside of the box, but with a traditional
feel. Tim had plenty of praise for the team that will be serving the
Towers community every day. Lou Roca, the Director of Dining
Services, has been in the culinary field for
43 years, ten of them in Kosher dining. His food philo- sophy is to
use fresh, whole unprocessed foods incorporating fresh spices and
herbs. He shared, "I enjoy making people happy through a great dining
experience and I'm looking forward to being a part of the Towers
team." Jon Lefebvre, Executive Chef, explained, "I always say that
your eyes eat first, a mantra that started when I won my first
culinary competition at 16. I am excited to bring this concept to the
Towers dining program and look forward to preparing dishes that always look as good as they taste."
Adesh Singh, Dining Experience Supervisor, who helps residents enjoy
meal times by ensuring that customer service is a top priority among
the wait staff and chefs, completes the team. Adesh has been in the
field for twelve years, much of it with seniors.
The new dining team is also looking forward to working with the
broader community and organizations who are invited to host Kosher
meetings and events here at The Towers. To learn more about hosting a
meeting or an event, please contact Jennifer Bayer, Director of
Development and Community Relations, at extension 290, jennifer@ towerone.org .

Since this newsletter was e-mailed to you, you're e-mail program may
not be able to render a PDF. You could try viewing it in a web
browser by visiting their website at:

http://towerone.org/

Move to the top of the page and tab until you hear "Our newsletter"
and press the enter key. If you have Adobe acrobat reader installed
on your PC it should open up in the browser. As Gene said, it won't
help with all of those graphics, and I did scan it with DocuScan and
it seems as their mostly decrative, so I wouldn't spend time using
the OCR feature in JAWS unless your really curious.

If you click on the our newsletter link from their website and
nothing happens, you may need to install the Adobe Acrobat reader.
You can download it from:

https://get.adobe.com/reader/

If your still having a problem viewing it in your browser, you can do
as Gene did and download the PDF to your PC and view it in the Adobe
Acrobat program itself. You can download the PDF by going to their
website and instead of pressing the enter key on the our newsletter
link, you would use your applications key on your keyboard or
similarly you could press the Ctrl key and the F10 key to open the
context window and then press enter on the save target as option.
This may vary depending on what browser your using, but their all
very similar.

I don't think that is a link to a webpage, I believe it's somehow being
reported as a link to a webpage, but it may just be a link to a graphic.
You need to view this newsletter as a PDF document using something like
Adobe Acrobat reader either as a addon for a browser or as a standalone
program. If you try one of the options I posted last night you should be
able to get this information I'll post it below, but I'll cut off the bottom
of the newsletter because it's a very long list of acknowledgements of
donors to their program.
If you have any trouble installing Adobe Acrobat, let us know and we'll help
you get that done.

Tim Smith, Regional Director of Operations for Morrison 42.
We are delighted to announce that Morrison has joined the Towers team to
transform and enhance our dining experience. Food is the focal point of a
much wider experience that is educational and social.
Morrison will bring food to life to enrich the lives of our seniors every
day through many new initiatives. There is much to look forward to. Our
community will enjoy a teaching kitchen that will bring residents together
under the tutelage of executive chefs to learn the "how to's" of preparing
a dish, food history, health benefits and chef tips. Super-foods of the
month, seasonally chosen, will provide an extra nutritional punch and
educate on the power of food. Through the Heirloom program, we will get to
share family recipes and histories with one another to be prepared for and
shared with the entire community. Our new display kitchen will dazzle the
senses as guests enjoy the smells, sights and sounds of our chefs working
their magic. With dining events that are current and fulfilling, everyone
at The Towers can make wonderful emotional connections while enjoying tasty
and healthy meals.
Tim Smith, Regional Director of Operations for Morrison, explained that
building strong relationships is what sets Morrison apart. He enjoys the
fact that the company is forward thinking, delivering a dining program that
is outside of the box, but with a traditional feel. Tim had plenty of
praise for the team that will be serving the Towers community every day. Lou
Roca, the Director of Dining Services, has been in the culinary field for
43 years, ten of them in Kosher dining. His food philo- sophy is to use
fresh, whole unprocessed foods incorporating fresh spices and herbs. He
shared, "I enjoy making people happy through a great dining experience and
I'm looking forward to being a part of the Towers team." Jon Lefebvre,
Executive Chef, explained, "I always say that your eyes eat first, a mantra
that started when I won my first culinary competition at 16. I am excited
to bring this concept to the Towers dining program and look forward to
preparing dishes that always look as good as they taste."
Adesh Singh, Dining Experience Supervisor, who helps residents enjoy meal
times by ensuring that customer service is a top priority among the wait
staff and chefs, completes the team. Adesh has been in the field for twelve
years, much of it with seniors.
The new dining team is also looking forward to working with the broader
community and organizations who are invited to host Kosher meetings and
events here at The Towers. To learn more about hosting a meeting or an
event, please contact Jennifer Bayer, Director of Development and Community
Relations, at extension 290, jennifer@ towerone.org .

Since this newsletter was e-mailed to you, you're e-mail program may
not be able to render a PDF. You could try viewing it in a web
browser by visiting their website at:

http://towerone.org/

Move to the top of the page and tab until you hear "Our newsletter"
and press the enter key. If you have Adobe acrobat reader installed on
your PC it should open up in the browser. As Gene said, it won't help
with all of those graphics, and I did scan it with DocuScan and it
seems as their mostly decrative, so I wouldn't spend time using the
OCR feature in JAWS unless your really curious.

If you click on the our newsletter link from their website and nothing
happens, you may need to install the Adobe Acrobat reader. You can
download it from:

https://get.adobe.com/reader/

If your still having a problem viewing it in your browser, you can do
as Gene did and download the PDF to your PC and view it in the Adobe
Acrobat program itself. You can download the PDF by going to their
website and instead of pressing the enter key on the our newsletter
link, you would use your applications key on your keyboard or
similarly you could press the Ctrl key and the F10 key to open the
context window and then press enter on the save target as option. This
may vary depending on what browser your using, but their all very
similar.

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

Blaster,

Since this newsletter was e-mailed to you, you're e-mail program may not be able to render a PDF. You could try viewing it in a web browser by visiting their website at:

http://towerone.org/

Move to the top of the page and tab until you hear "Our newsletter"
and press the enter key. If you have Adobe acrobat reader installed on your PC it should open up in the browser. As Gene said, it won't help with all of those graphics, and I did scan it with DocuScan and it seems as their mostly decrative, so I wouldn't spend time using the OCR feature in JAWS unless your really curious.

If you click on the our newsletter link from their website and nothing happens, you may need to install the Adobe Acrobat reader. You can download it from:

https://get.adobe.com/reader/

If your still having a problem viewing it in your browser, you can do as Gene did and download the PDF to your PC and view it in the Adobe Acrobat program itself. You can download the PDF by going to their website and instead of pressing the enter key on the our newsletter link, you would use your applications key on your keyboard or similarly you could press the Ctrl key and the F10 key to open the context window and then press enter on the save target as option. This may vary depending on what browser your using, but their all very similar.

HTH,
Blaster

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

Gene,

I see several long links.

How does one access the clipboard in MS ten?

Re: success with Fire Fox

To make Google or whatever page you want to be your home page, do the following:
Open the page you want.
then type alt t to open tools.  Then o to open options.
If you are using JAWS, turn off the virtual pc cursor with JAWS key z.
If you are using NVDA, turn off browse mode with NVDA key space bar.
Shif tab until you get to general.
Down arrow once to home.
Tab until you get to a button that says something like restore defaults.
Tab once more and you should be on an item where you hear the word home.  You may hear other text spoken as well
This is a combo box.  Open it with alt down arrow.
Down arrow to custom page.
Tab until you get to use current.  It is a button.
Press the space bar.
google is now the home page.
After that, turn on the virtual PC cursor with the same command you used to turn it off, JAWS key z.
If you are using NVDA, turn on browse mode with the same command you used to turn it off, NVDA key space bar.
There is no okay button.  Changes take immediate effect.  Do whatever you want now.  You will be leaving a web page, the options web page so go to another page, close the browser, anything you would do when leaving a web page.

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.

People have told me to hit Control L for putting an address in but it already goes there so I just type it in.  Yes, I do want to make a home page.  So if I hit, Control K, I can type google.com and it should come up and then how would I make it my home page?  Thanks.

Subject: [TechTalk] success with Fire Fox

            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.

Shelly

Re: Think Twice Before Installing the Latest Windows 10 Update

That might be a good plan. Regarding the iPad, I think when iPad operating system is released in a few weeks, people will find that the iPad is every bit as good as a personal computer.

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.

Also, if the combination headset/microphone you are using is a USB device, It might have its own settings.  If they are accessible, you might find the problem in them.

No, that isn't it.  The filter allows certain bands to pass and blocks others, according to what I looked up. 
 
What happens if you use the same app and the built-in microphone in the Braille Note, assuming it has one?

Gene, the only filter I find in the settings on Sound Recorder Pro on my BrailleNote Touch Plus is Bandpass Voice Filter. The switch is currently off. Do you think turning it on would solve the problem?

I'm pretty sure it's not the device because I've recorded on Sero, and it doesn't do that there. Besides, for the recording I sent, I used a headset with an in-line microphone.
