first turn on commentary, then turn off talkback once commentary is running. in commentary's settings, under tts, set everything to the system voice and check use a single voice. under content presentation settings, in list settings, uncheck the speaking of list ranges and stuff. under action settings and scrolling, set it to swipe left and right to move through icons rather than swipe up and down.

no, commentary screen reader is not on the play store. you absolutely 100 percent must get it from the link i provided and install the APK on your android phone using the total commander app on the play store. commentary is made in china, translated to english by volunteers, distributed on the commentary english screen readers telegram group.


Re: how many use both?

I use both, I don't have a daily driver android at the moment, but
that's mainly because of not having the extra to replace my old galaxy
s6. I Love both for different reasons. IOS is boring but there are
some features that make it worth having.

Hi,

I have an android phone for what it does best, and an iPod touch so I can
use the best that iOS offers without spending a fortune. I have the latest
iPod touch 7th gen that came out In May of 2019. So are there others on here
that have both android and iOS to have the best of both worlds so to speak?

I'm going to have an unexpected health problem checked today.  I feel fine but I may be in hospital so I may not be as active on the list.  I'm sure Laaz will do a good job dealing with anything that may come up.. 
 
Please don't clutter the list with good wishes messages to me.  You may send them to
Since the messages are directed to me, they would just be clutter on list. 
 
I don't know if the problem is serious or not but it needs to be checked.

Pending Bill in US Congress: regarding reimbursement for blind access tech for workers

Keith S
 

I was given permission by the list owner, Gene, to post this. Hopefully it will get passed and more of us can enter the work force...

Dear Federation Family:

As President Riccobono mentioned in the Presidential Release, the United States House

and Senate are now back in session and there is no better time to rally support for

our legislative priorities. Congress will be in session until the two week break

at the beginning of October. That gives us exactly three weeks to build serious cosponsor

support for our three legislative priorities

.

Since we have three weeks and three pieces of legislation, we’re going to focus on

one issue per week. I will include bill summaries and cosponsor counts for the relevant

bills in each legislative alert email. This week’s top legislative priority is the

Access Technology Affordability Act.

Access Technology Affordability Act (ATAA)

House – H.R. 2086 – Sponsored by Mike Thompson (D-CA-5) – 28 cosponsors

Senate – S. 815 – Sponsored by John Boozman (R-AR) – 14 cosponsors

This legislation removes an employment barrier commonly experienced by blind Americans

who cannot afford the high cost of access technology by creating a refundable tax

credit in the amount of $2,000 to offset the cost of these technologies.

These cosponsor counts are impressive, but we need to keep the pressure up to ensure

that ATAA moves from the committees to the floor and is ultimately passed into law.

Please call your representative and two senators and urge them to cosponsor the Access

Technology Affordability Act if they have not already done so. A complete list of

current cosponsors is included at the end of this email.

When you call or email, you might say something like the following:

"Hello, my name is [your name] and I am a constituent of [your senator/representative].

I live in [city, state]. I am calling to urge [your senator/representative] to cosponsor

[S. 815 for Senate calls/H.R. 2086 for House calls], the Access Technology Affordability

Act. This legislation removes an employment barrier commonly experienced by blind

Americans who cannot afford the high cost of access technology by creating a refundable

tax credit in the amount of $2,000 to offset the cost of these technologies. I urge

[your senator/representative] to cosponsor the bill.

Thanks."

You can contact your member of Congress by calling the Capitol Switchboard and asking

for the office in question. The number is 202-224-3121. If you email your representative

or senators, please copy John Pare at

jpare@...

. Your calls and emails do make a difference.

I do not use Apple all the way because I think it is to restrictive.  You can't share files and connect directly with an android user or windows user via bluetooth, for example.  Still I own all three, Windows Android and the mac for my software development work because needs must.

Re: Link for commentary screen reader for Android APK file

David Moore <jesusloves1966@...>
 

Hello Josh! I just found your link to the commentary screen reader. I installed it! What should I do next? Can I use TalkBack and commentary at the same time so I can get commentary turned on? if I turn off TalkBack, I will not be able to access the on button to turn on commentary. if I allow commentary to begin talking, what then? I will then have commentary and TalkBack both running at the same time. I do have the shortcut to stop TalkBack by pressing both volume buttons enacted. Can I do that to stop TalkBack even while commentary is running after I turn commentary on? Thanks a lot Josh, and I would be very interested in being a part of this commentary development. I talk on the Android less a lot, and I love to participate, and help blind people use their Android phones. Please feel free to email me offline at

When I search in the playstore app on my galaxy phone the first result is DDS Screen Reader from DreamDoor Soft. Is this the correct Commentary Screen Reader?

Re: Removing stripped screws

Geoff Eden <geden1@...>
 

Good afternoon, do you mean that the threads are stripped or that the heads are mangled?

When working on tiny screws in computer cases, I always make sure that the head of my screwdriver is in perfect shape. This is especially important if it is one of those godforsaken Phillips screws.

I have always taken to using a small hammer and tapping the screw litely a dozen or more times as this tends to release the threads and to properly seat your screwdriver into the head of the screw. Speaking of which, take a sharp instrument and pick any glue or other debris out of the head of the screw before starting. Having a near perfect fit of the screwdriver to the screw head has everything to do with success.

Don't give up on the light tapping, I have done it for 20 or 30 minutes at a go in the past. Be patient, it works.

If the screw has a totally camed out head, drilling with a 1/16 or 3/32 size drill bit might be necessary.

Establishing 90° is the difficult part. If you own a drill press, prepare a small block of hardwood with a 90° hole the size of your drillbit. You could then run your drill through that block can be as close to 90° as possible. Drilling out the side of the screw can be fatal. Take your time. Let me say it again, take your time.

There are specialty drill bits that work backwards. I have seen them on the Internet at fancy hardware providers such as Lee Valley.
I have heard of people who put a drop of epoxy on the screw head and were able to get a bite on it with a screwdriver.

Once upon a time in my deep dark past, I sharpened the blade of an old screwdriver in the profile of a bayonet so I could rocket in the head of the damage screw to work opposite facing grooves. I was able then to get enough purchase on that screw, after tapping for a while, to get it out.

Generally speaking, you can find slightly larger screws to replace the ones that you've had to pull out. Not pretty, but practical.

You can, of course, fill a stripped screw hole with epoxy, drill a tiny pilot hole, and drive in a fresh screw.

In any event, best of luck to you. I feel your pain.

I have been cursed by stripped screws on 3 projects in the past 2 weeks, so I am seeking advice.  How do you folks approach stripped screws in things like laptop backs, old radios and other fragile electronics that wouldn’t take kindly to drilling?  Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi all,

I haven't used CCleaner in almost a year and not at all on windows 10, and when I installed it the other day it looks quite a bit different from what I remember. Can anybody give me some tips?

I eventually found the registry button and after I hit that things looked like I remember at least for that section, but I also want to know how to delete cookies with it and I can't quite figure out that part anymore.

Thanks in advance for any help.
