unzipping files with windows 10

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I'm trying to unzip an audio book with windows 10 and I'm having trouble.

I'm highlighting the file to be unzipped then hitting my context menu key and arrowing down to open with which is a submenu so I open that with the right arrow and arrow down to winRar, but when I hit enter there I just get placed inside of the zipped file where the folders are shown but no unzipping is done. What am I missing? I've unzipped files in windows 10 before without a problem, and I'm sure I followed the same procedure before but I never had the open with submenu, once I hit the context key I just arrowed down to unzip here and when I hit enter there the file unzipped.

Thanks.

Troy

Hi Dave,
 
Okay, I just graduated from Bonehead School!  LOL  What happened was I had been playing around with a program called, Old New Explorer, and in this program I had the libraries turned off.  Went in, turned libraries on and This PC is now showing the way it should.  Thanks for the kick that triggered the Old New Explorer reminder.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Re: Audio description and Uverse..?

Rick Alfaro
 

Hi. Do yourself a favor and switch back to Comcast. I had Uverse for a couple of months and hated it. You can get audio description but you have to go through the info button on your remote then arrow over to languages and choose Spanish from the list of languages. Talking to AT&T about anything having to do with accessibility is useless. Nobody you talk to has any clue regarding accessibility. The best I got out of them was possibly getting free directory assistance. I went back to Concast which I had for over 15 hears. Their commitment to accessibility is real and so much better in terms of implementation compared to any other of the providers.

Hi there FOLKS!

Does anyone know if there is the audio description feature available with Uverse? I was told that it was available but cannot find anywhere to go to set it up? I seriously believe that when my contract with them expires, I will be switching back to Comcast.  Can anyone help me here?

Re: Audio description on cable tv through RCN?

Steve Matzura
 

SAP=Secondary Audio Program, a holdover feature from when stereo audio first came onto the scene in the eighties and was added to the then-new portion of the over-the-air TV signal. I can't believe cable systems are still employing this archaic term for what is clearly not the same thing any more. And to deliver audio description via this mechanism is in my unhumble opinion stupid. The set-top box splits the audio, putting the main channel audio on one stereo side, and the descriptive audio on the other. Is that not the most ridiculous thing you ever heard? You lose the whole experience of the full stereo audio track everybody else gets who's not using audio description, and you're in trouble if you have a hearing deficiency which prevents you from hearing properly on one side.


There are a few instances where I've heard DVS implemented properly, mapped directly over the stereo audio track and presented in both left and right channels at equal levels and equalization, but it's rare.

Good Morning All,
 
Running Win10 Pro & latest 1903 ... .356 with latest Jaws.  I don't know what setting I changed, but I'm not showing the list of folders in This Pc, only the OS, optical and data drives.  Would someone please tell me what setting I need to change and where it is so I can get the folder list back?  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

I believe you can update the 5C to IOS 12, but you need to use itunes to do it.

Hi Group:


My mom has an I phone 5 C and she has had it for five years and she hasn't had updates since IOS 9 came out. Her phone works fine. Of course, she doesn't use it much. She just uses it for texting and phone calls. The phone works fine but just doesn't have the updates. I have an SE that will be 3 years old and I'm hoping to get another year out of it. I think Apple wants to scare people so they run out and buy a new phone. Apple also makes our older phones slower to persuade us to buy new ones. I know what's really going on and I don't fall for it. Hope this helps.

I have an SE as my second business cell and I plan on using that bad boy until the wheels fall off.
Most likely, you may find that certain apps once iOS 14 come out may start giving you problems or run slower or simply not have all the features available than newer versions, but as far as the phone not working? Not true.

I was told that my iPhone 6S will not be able to receive any updates after the 13.1 update that is scheduled for this month. Does anyone know if this is true? Also, pardon my ignorance but will the phone still be useable once they stop supporting it? I literally bought it new from Consumer Cellular less than two weeks ago and was hoping it would last me a couple years. I don't use the phone often, mainly for text messages and the occasional voice call. Thanks for any info in advance!

And my mistake from earlier, it's the 6 S which is the oldest phone that will run IOS 13, not the 7, sorry about that.

Re: Audio description on cable tv through RCN?

Gerald Levy
 

SAP stands for secondary Audio Program.  It was originally developed so that  broadcasters to add a foreign language soundtrack to accompany the regular English language audio on the main channel.  But as described audio programming became more popular, blind consumers demanded that the SAP channel be used to carry it.

BrailleSense and NVDA

Hello all, I am trying to pair my BrailleSense Polaris with NVDA.  I have installed the drivers on both my desktop and laptop, and have the latest NVDA release on both machines.  However, while I can see the options for HIMS BrailleSense products on my laptop when in the NVDA Braille display list, I can't find it in the list on my desktop.  Does anyone know why this is?  Thank you.
