It's easy to contact PayPal for a refund though, and they'll most likely decide in your favor. I've done this a couple times for services unrelated. Sometimes it's been my own fault I had 2 subscriptions set up. Sometimes they charged me twice. They still decide in your favor.

Hi Gene, I'm already pretty suspicious of Doctor's and nurses because of something that happened 4 years ago. It's a long story, but basically a doctor got me to track my fluid intake and output something I couldn't do by myself while I was staying with my parents briefly. She had no idea how much of a problem this was for me, and since none of you know my health conditions or my mother for that matter, you don't either.

    I'm pretty sure the ones you put around your arm are cheaper than the wrist ones. Although I'll have to look at prices again.


Re: blood pressure moniter

Gene
 

Be very suspicious of what health people tel you will be easier because they may wel be basing their statements on some completely inaccurate idea about blindness. 
 
The wrist ones are less accurate.  As far as accuracy and quality, I can't compare different brands nor apps versus stand alone units.  I can tell you that Speak to Me has a unit, I believe the same stand alone machine is available at Walgreen's, but others might definitely know and it may be a little less.  But I tend to support blind small businesses, even if I pay a little more. 
 
I havewn't compared my unit to other machines, but it appears to be reasonably accurate, though that is more a guess and an Impression than a statement.  Whatever the case, even if mine isn't particularly accurate, it gives me an idea if my blood pressure is more or less within the limits it should be.  I would suggest that, if you get one, take it to a doctor's office where they take manual blood pressure measurements and compare three readings of your machine to three readings they get.

Hi, wondering what blood pressure moniters people use weather smart to
work with smartphone or regular that talks. Just need something
accurate and accessable. Thanks


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

Smiling?
 

I would have to strongly say no, that the machine which is running a 32bit OS will not recognize that the hardware itself is 64bit simply due to that the maximum amount of memory that a 32bit OS can run, is 4GB regardless of how much memory one may have installed.

And a 64bit machine can of course run 32bit software's (hence the whole backwards compatible thing).

Hi,
I think it is important not to confuse the machine with the operating
system. I ran a 32-bit operating system on a 64-bit machine for a while,
until I could be certain that all the regular software I ran would work
in a 64-bit environment.
What I am unsure of though, is if the operating system is 32-bit, is it
capable of recognising that the machine is 64-bit? Because if not, I'm
guessing the only real way you could find out the hardware configuration
is by some clever electronics engineering or something.
Cheers,

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.


Now, I haven't just tried this on my own system, but this info came from
some of the dusty crevices in my Brain.

Re: captcha be gone status

That's part of the scam.  The developer is still taking consumers' money for a service he no longer maintains, and once he gets it in his hot little hands, it is up to the consumer to contact PayPal to get a refund, because this shyster has apparently vanished into the netherworld, never to be heard from again. Yet another scammer who is trying to exploit blind consumers.

kid3 mp3 tagger screen reader help

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

 

I am trying to edit the tags across multiple mp3 files with this mp3 tag editor.

 

https://sourceforge.net/projects/kid3/

 

I want to set it up so all the mp3 files play in order when I sync my iTunes library to my iPhone/iPod touch and to do that I have to modify the tags of each mp3. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong though because when I hit the tag1 button and it says from filename and then I save, go to tools, number tracks, hit ok, hit save. Then re-import into iTunes the files are still out of order. Has anyone used the above software with NVDA? What is the best way ;to make a folder full of mp3 files play in order from first to last? I have the files numbered 1 through 131. But this does not help.

I’m going back in hospital again, I hope for just a few days.  My heart rhythm is erratic and it will be monitored and treatment or treatments tried.

I'm back, but considering how I've been in and out of hospital, I'll just say I'm back.  We'll all find out together if its for a good while or not.
 
I'm feeling alright, though I'm more tired than I should be.  I had to start a new medication and have it adjusted.
 
I have so much accumulated mail that I'll probably not read most of it so if anyone wanted me to respond to something, please send it again.

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.

Re: c cleaner

Chris G <chris@...>
 

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.

The whole concept of programs like CCleaner is so unnecessary now because the operating system, not to mention hardware, is so much faster, the time and space saved by running Registry cleaners makes very little, if any, difference any more. Even Microsoft disrecommends these kinds of programs. Registry cleaners usually cause more troubles than they fix.
