I found out that the kid3 mp3 tag editor is pretty accessible with NVDA. Are there any other mp3 tag editors that you know of that are accessible and that are free?

Nancy, just follow your computer's manual. You should be able to grab a
copy, perhaps .pdf formatted, FROM YOUR COMPUTER'S MAKERS WEBSITE. Else, if
you can share more details about make and model, and you are having
difficulties finding the manual, any number of us in this space will
probably help you fish it out. I certainly would love to try helping in
this way.

I've never had problems managing batteries; may be I'm a child with a golden
spoon in my wee, small hands, and a diamond one upon my tongue. But, with
all the tinkering I do with computers and similar toys in general, I'm yet
to run afoul of anything. That said, I return to my torture chambers where
a few new toys are waiting impatiently for their torture session!

Re: Laptop Battery Use

Gene
 

I've read articles on the subject and what I do, others may do different thinhhgs depending on how they use the computer, is to have the power adapter plugged in when I use it, and have it unplugged when I don’t. 
 
That helps me not overcharge nor undercharge the battery.

Subject: [TechTalk] Laptop Battery Use

Everyone,


Recently I got a new computer.  It is one of those models that it seems
like 'everything' is soldered to the motherboard.  I would appreciate
knowledge/advice concerning how to make the best use of my battery to
preserve it's life as long as possible.


To me, it seems like there are only 2 options.  Run the laptop plugged
directly into a wall outlet all the time, or run the laptop only off
battery power.  until it is totally discharged

and then use it plugged in until the battery is charged again...then
switch back to Battery power.


I just would like to power the machine in the way that would be best for it.


Help Please and many thanks in advance.


Nancy

You can also configure most of the Netgear routers through a web browser
and not an app if you would like.

I had a nighthawk 8000 and I could configure it that way. Also my
Netgear Orbi I can also configure through a web browser.

Subject: [TechTalk] Netgear Router: NightHawk Revisited

Hi Group,

A month or so ago, I inquired about the Netgear series of routers.
Someone recommended the Nighthawk model from Netgear. I searched for it
on Amazon and indeed I found it as follows:
NETGEAR Nighthawk AX4 4-Stream WiFi 6 Router (RAX40) - AX3000 Wireless
Speed (up to 3Gbps) | Coverage for Small-to-Medium Homes | 4 x 1G
Ethernet and 1 x 3.0 USB Ports
4.2 out of 5 stars 12,799
$192.14
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Netgear+Nighthawk&i=electronics&rh=n%3A172282%2Cn%3A300189%2Cp_89%3ANETGEAR%2Cp_36%3A1253506011&dc&qid=1570814066&rnid=386442011&ref=sr_nr_p_36_4

It says that it is for small and medium sized houses. This fits me to a
T. I am wondering, just to be sure of a few things. It says that there
is an iPhone app for this router. I checked for the app store and indeed
there is. I downloaded it just to check on accessibility. It seems
accessible, but of course without the router, you can't get very far, it
asks for a user name and password and that's where you have to stop
without the hardware.

I want to be sure if anyone else has checked this app out and if the
whole app is indeed accessible? I also want to be sure that this model
has both wired and wireless capability. I believe it say that it has up
to 4 wired slots. Is this true? I am very inexperienced with the
specifications for routers in general and thus must be sure of this
before I purchase.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I remember I had a download manager that I registered and every so often
it would lose it's key and make me reenter the license.
Turned out it was a registry cleaner thinking the key was useless and
it would remove the key.
I have stopped using registry cleaners because of that.

Re: Dear Friends, Thanks so much,I Only saw 1 Programs Folder, but also a Programs Data Folder,

Damien Garwood <damien@...>
 

Hi Alan,
Actually, the fact that you have one program files folder suggests that you have a 32-bit version of Windows installed. But that can work on either a 32 or 64 bit machine. So it depends whether you want to know if your Windows is 32 or 64-bit (to find out whether you should install 32 or 64-bit software), or whether your machine is 32 or 64 bit (to work out what versions of an operating system you can install if you want to upgrade or whatever).
Cheers,
Damien.

There's only one thing that I see that is incorrect below, and that is if you are using a 32bit machine, there will be a Program Files (x86) folder which is not true. If you are using a 32bit machine, it will only have a Program Files directory and not the Program Files (x86) directory.

It's when one is using a 64bit machine, it will have both of these above directories.

I am sure there are more than one way to tell if your System is a 64 bit
or 32 bit, but here's how I find out.


I look on the C: Drive, at the folders.  If you have One folder that is
named PROGRAM FILES, and another called, PROGRAM FILES X86, then you
have a 64 bit System.


If you do not have a folder named PROGRAM FILES, but only have the one
named PROGRAM FILES X86, then this would be a 32 bit System.


When installing software, if the software getting installed is a 32 bit
program, it will be installed into the PROGRAM FILES X86 folder.  If it
happens to be a 64 bit program, it would be installed into the PROGRAM
FILES folder.


I just thought of another way-


In the Search Field, type, System Info and press the Enter Key.


This should bring up info about your computer, and I think it should
tell you what edition of Windows and whether it is 64 or 32 bit.    It
should tell you the Chip speed and the amount of Memory on board too.

Re: songs out of order when I sinc with itunes

Jaffar Sidek
 

Josh.  I can tell you that ITunes is a very fussy piece of software.  You need to tag your files propperly.  Here's a rough guide.

Title: Name of show

Artist, perhaps the star actor

Album: name of program.

Track, episode number.

You can then play your files in order because ITunes builds it's library on your tag info.  Cheers!

Re: Dear Friends, How do I tell if I have a 32 Bit or 64 bit Windows 7 machine? Thanks!

Damien Garwood <damien@...>
 

Hi,
There are actually two programs for retrieving system information.

1. system info (systeminfo.exe)
This seems to be a console-driven program, so you would need to know how to use and navigate command prompt or similar in order to work it and read the reams of information it spits out at you. Luckily, there is a GUI version.

2. System information (msinfo32.exe)
This pretty much gives you the same information as the command line version above. Make sure "system summary" is highlighted on the treeview, then tab past to the list.
Even then though, it looks like that only tells you whether your machine is 32 or 64-bit, not the operating system. My machine, for instance, says: "System Type; x64-based PC". Of course, I could be wrong, I don't have a 32-bit version of Windows to compare with, but that does suggest hardware configuration to me.

Another way to do it is, if you go to "system" in the control panel, that gives you both software and hardware bit count, but you need to virtualise the window with your screen reader (in NVDA you'll need the Virtual Review addon), as you can't use standard navigation to get that information.

Personally, I think the best way to check is the "program files/program files (x86)" method. Much quicker and less painful.
Cheers,
Damien.

I am sure there are more than one way to tell if your System is a 64 bit
or 32 bit, but here's how I find out.


I look on the C: Drive, at the folders.  If you have One folder that is
named PROGRAM FILES, and another called, PROGRAM FILES X86, then you
have a 64 bit System.


If you do not have a folder named PROGRAM FILES, but only have the one
named PROGRAM FILES X86, then this would be a 32 bit System.


When installing software, if the software getting installed is a 32 bit
program, it will be installed into the PROGRAM FILES X86 folder.  If it
happens to be a 64 bit program, it would be installed into the PROGRAM
FILES folder.


I just thought of another way-


In the Search Field, type, System Info and press the Enter Key.


This should bring up info about your computer, and I think it should
tell you what edition of Windows and whether it is 64 or 32 bit.    It
should tell you the Chip speed and the amount of Memory on board too.


Now, I haven't just tried this on my own system, but this info came from

Yo Bro,
 
The easiest way:
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue.
2. Type, C:, and press enter.  That is a capitol, C, and a colon
3. Press the letter, P, until you hear, Program Files, and press the letter, P, again and if you hear, Program Files (x86), this means you are running a 64 bit computer.
Note: A 32 bit computer will only have 1 Program Files folder on the root of the C drive.  With a 64 bit computer the 64 bit programs go into the Program Files folder and the 32 bit programs go into the Program Files (x86) folder.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Dear Friends, How do I tell if I have a 32 Bit or 64 bit Windows 7 machine?
I received this Windows 7 machine about 2 years ago, from Texas Computers
For the Blind.
It is a refurbished H P Desk Top, running Windows 7 and I have JAWS 13
installed.
I was recommended by friends to a couple of web sites, like White Cane.org,
where I can download some simple Programs, that are Freeware, but I am asked
if I want the 32 or 64 bit version of the program, and to be honest, I do
not know which I am using on this Windows 7 machine, which I have only been
using less than 8 or 9 months.
It seems I used XP all my life, LOL!
Thanks for any assistance in advance.
With Best Regards,
God Bless,
