Yeah, the Dev’s got a personal Twitter account as well as one for his company (Accessible Apps), but don’t think he actively monitors it.

Probably the best you can do is reach out to him documenting your attempts to stop the charge then reach out to your card company to try to kill that recurring charge or dispute it.

Dropbox always says phone is locked, can't figure out how to unlock it.

Whenever I connect my iPhone to my laptop, Dropbox asks me if I want
to import and when I always say yes, it always comes back with a Phone
Is Locked message. Can someone tell me how to configure the phone to
be unlocked for Dropbox? It doesn't give me the option to unlock it.
I would like to import my pictures from the phone to Dropbox.

Thanks in advance,

leaving sendspace

Monte Single
 

Hi List,

My sendspace pro account will expire at the end of the month and I will not renew it.

I can do all the file sharing I want with free accounts at dropbox and p-cloud.

I want to download all my files from s s before the account expires.

I do have the s s wizard installed.

Is there a way I can  download all the files without having to do it 1 at a time.

I have about sixty gigs there.

The money I  can save by not having a paid   account can go towards a new computer fund or other gizmos and  gadgets.

Thanks,

Monte

I am running windows 7 system, and Jaws version 16. I am having a problem when I use Windows Explorer through My Computer or My Documents programs from my desktop. When I open My Computer or My Documents and scroll down through the folders Windows Explorer is working just fine, but when I open a folder and start to arrow down the list of files in that folder I keep getting that My Documents or My Computer is not responding and I have to close out the My Documents or My Computer program and sometimes I have to restart my computer. I am looking for anyone who may have a solution to this issue and will be very appreciated for their help.

Hi Simon,

You can get Chrome OS on a desktop, they call them Chrome Box.

chromeVox not to be confused with Chrome Box is the screen reader.
Depending on what you want to do with Chrome OS, it works well.

Plus you can install and run supported Android apps.

hello all,

this is going to end this coming january.
not only do I not really want windows 10, as I have just heard so many
stories of access issues with it, especially when it comes to those pesky
ribbon menus, but as my current screenreader is window-eyes, that
seemingly won't work with it as well.
so if I have got to change both my os and screenreader, rather than the
win10 rout, I wondered if there is any sort of android desktop machine?
as at least having used that on my samsung phone, if there is, I thought
that may be a better rout to go.
if that's not possible, another option that I am considering, is something
like chrome os, again, if I can find that on a desktop machine, so am
wondering if anyone has had any experience of this with it's screenreader,
and range of apps?
as I have heard a few good things about this, but don't really know that
much about it.

Re: questions about wifi extenders

Geoff Eden <geden1@...>
 

Troy, if it used to work, and no longer does, then there is no conclusion other than the equipment is beginning to fail. Wi-Fi equipment seems to be particularly vulnerable and seems to require frequent replacement. I'm sure others would agree. So lean on your provider before buying any more equipment.

It would be a darn shame to buy an extender and then have your primary Wi-Fi quit on you.

The only other thing I can suggest is that you try moving your Wi-Fi modem. Even a small amount of movement can sometimes solve a problem such as from one shelf to another. Many Wi-Fi modems have pencil like antennas sticking out of them. If yours does, try reorienting the antennas.

Of course, good luck.

Geoff

Subject: [TechTalk] questions about wifi extenders

Hi all,

This is a pretty in depth explanation of what's going on so please stick
with me because I have a question at the end.

Road runner is my internet provider and Spectrum is my cable tv
provider. I go in an online chat room almost every day, in fact 2
different ones but they're on the same site, and I use my iPhone to
chat. Lately I've been having more and more trouble staying connected
and in the chat rooms, and often even though I don't get kicked off the
chat server I'm told that my transmissions start breaking up and I'm
hard to understand.

Also, I have an Amazon echo with alexa, and every once in a while the
connection to whatever I'm listening to through the echo will stop
playing and when I ask alexa to start it again she says that she's
having problems understanding and to please try again a little later. I
even use the ambient sleep sounds to help me sleep at night, and a few
times the sound I use has stopped in the middle of the night and when I
ask alexa to restart it I get the message that she is having trouble
understanding and to please try again later.

Spectrum came last week and checked my router and they said there are no
problems with it, but I found out that I'm right at the outer limits of
their wifi service and that's where my question comes in. The guy told
me that he's putting in a work order for a booster to be put on my line
but he said it could take as long as a month to get this done. My
question then is if a wifi extender would help my problem because if it
would I might go ahead and buy one myself and start using it instead of
waiting for Spectrum to put the wifi booster on the lines.

Thanks in advance for any opinions on this matter.

Troy

Re: questions about wifi extenders

Troy Burnham
 

Hi Dave,

I don't really know the answers to any of your questions below. I do know that I called spectrum a few weeks ago when the problem started getting worse, and apparently some changes were made and the rep told me that if that didn't help that I could call back and they'd send somebody here to check things out. It took a few days but it eventually did start happening again, so I called again and when the second rep checked my router settings he said that it was on a setting that caused the connection to switch channels now and then. He changed it back to the setting where it wouldn't change channels since that's evidently for people living in apartment buildings or something like that where more than one user may be using the same channel, I live in a house btw, and that's when a service man was sent to check things out on my end. This service man was the one who told me that I'm apparently very near the end of the line of where their service extends too, and he was the one who said that he'd put in a work order for a booster to be installed.

I don't know if anybody around me uses road runner, the next door neighbor I think has Dish but I'm not sure where they get their internet from. I don't know of anybody else who has road runner either, I will say that aside from the next door neighbor the next closest house to us is across the street, and an elderly lady lives there and if she even has an internet connection I highly doubt it's road runner. I can't comment on anybody else, but there are very few houses close to me with most of them being further down the street in either direction, so I don't know if anything they do could interfere with my connection even if they do get their internet from road runner.

Troy

Hello Troy,

Question first, what kind of equipment (router and modem make and
model) do you have? What is your service plan with spectrum?

Have you had them run a noise test from there to you? If so what does that say?

And lastly, have you checked either with you or them, if you've got
any Wifi points around you that are on the same channel as yours etup?

Dave.

Accessible and on the level service for buying lottery tickets online?

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So not for me, but rather a friend who is visually impaired. He’s tired of asking friends/family to buy him a lottery ticket and being told that it’s out of their way or they don’t’ have time etc. I don’t really play so have never looked into anything like this, so I told him I’d ask in case anyone plays lotto and how they buy their tickets. Please, no lectures on how it’s a waste of money/ fool’s errand. Just trying to help a friend out.

I think I’ve heard of online lotto ticket buying services in the past, but again, never paid it much mind.

Does anyone on here play? This is for California. I don’t know if he plays the state lotto or just powerball or whatever, but I guess to be on the safe side, something that covers the national and California  super lotto games. Trustworthy, accessible and on the level and all that.

If so, what service do you use? I think he’s got an iPhone so if there’s an iOS app that can accomplish the same it would be good to know as well.

 

Thanks,
