Re: Accurate Talking Kitchen Scales

Cristóbal
 

That... is not practical in the least.
The only stand alone talking kitchen scales that can weigh to the gram that
I am aware of are the My Weigh Vox talking kitchen scales. I did have a
Cobalt talking kitchen scale back in the day, but it only weighed to the
tenth of the ounce. Unacceptable if you want/need accurate measurements.
The only bad thing is that at least in my experience is that the My Weigh
scales are super unreliable as far as durability. Others say that they've
had their scales for years, but I was always having to swap mine out every
few weeks or so. It got to the point that I just got a bluetooth enabled
kitchen scale that I use with my iPhone. It's the Drop Scale from Get Drop.
www.getdrop.com They're also sold on Amazon. This scale weighs to the tenth
of the gram and in nearly 2 years now, has held up like a champ. I've only
had to change the $5 battery once.
The iOS app is completely accessible as far as the scale goes and announces
the weight in real time.
My preference would be of course to have a stand alone talking kitchen
scale, but alas, I'm not aware of anything beyond the crappy Vox scales. The
Drop scale if you have an iOS device might be something you could look into.
It connects pretty fast and all in all, it's not a real inconvenience to use
with your iPhone or anything.
If there is in fact another option out there for a talking kitchen scale,
I'd be happy to hear about it.
Good luck.

Cristóbal

Use a item of known weighht. Adjust the results for other items
accordingly.

Just a thought, but is your email client's address book / contacts linked to a shared Gmail account with other personal devices?

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

Subject: [TechTalk] reposting E-mail Question

I am having a strange issue with e-mail links within e-mails the last few weeks.
 
My default e-mail is a comcast e-mail, and until a few days ago, when I would open a link within an e-mail to send a message to someone, my comcast address would be the e-mail address that replied. I will give an example in a moment.
 
Now when I try to use an e-mail address within an e-mail, it will go to the gmail page and want to use my gmail address to send that e-mail.
 
I checked my account settings and they are all set as before and my comcast address is my default address.
 
Here is an example, since I know this may be confusing.
 
I get an e-mail from Susan and within Susan's e-mail, there is an e-mail address link, such as jenny@....
 
I want to send an e-mail to Jenny, so I click on her e-mail link, and instead of opening up a new e-mail from my comcast address to Jenny, it opens up a gmail page and shows that page as the one associated with my gmail account.
 
If I copy and paste the e-mail address to Jenny instead of clicking it directly, I can then open a new e-mail, paste in her address and it comes from my comcast address as it should.
 
What could be making the e-mail links within my e-mail suddenly begin opening a gmail page with my gmail account?
 
Thanks.

Cabling for audio and video

Howard Traxler
 

G'morning to all,

I'm about to embark on a new venture (new to me).  About four years ago, I got my wife an new TV; I think it's called a smart TV.  It's a Sony xbr-49x830c.  At this point, I'm gonna try to interface it with other (older) audio and video equipment.

My first questions are related to HDMI cables.

1. How many conductors are contained in an HDMI cable and what signals do each carry?
2. As for the connectors on either end of an HDMI cable, are they the same; or are they different (like USB connectors can be)?

3. I'm gonna try to connect my DVD player directly to the TV with an HDMI cable.  What should I look for (and where) in purchasing an HDMI cable for this purpose?

If anyone has already done stuff like this, I would appreciate your sharing of experiences and suggestions.

Thank you.

Howard

Hi group,

If anyone is using object locators which are fully accessible with IOS, I'd like to hear from you. I don't mean an app which identifies objects, but a physical item which can be placed onto an object and then one can find that object using their IOS device.

Thanks for your input,

Re: organising bookmarks in firefox?

Gene
 

I'd have to look again and experiment to see how this is done.  But others who use the feature, I have almost never uysed it in years, probably already know.
 
I shall tell you about a feature that may cause you not to care about organizing and moving book marks.  It is because of features like this that I almost never move or organize any book marks.
 
Firefox has an excellent bookmarks search feature.  You can type some or all of what you are searching for and you don't have to start at the beginning.  If, for example, I want to find The New York Times book mark, I simply open the book marks search with control I, type something, I type rk ti because that is short and distinctive, and then tab once.  I am in a list of results.  Pressing enter on the result I want opens the page. 
 
The book marks search is still opened but it doesn't get in the way or cause problems.  You can turn it off with the same command, control I.  If you forget and leave it on and want to use it again, just use control I to turn it off, then control I again to turn it on. 
 
The search looks through all book marks so I don't have to worry about what folder they may be in or where they are in that folder.

Subject: [TechTalk] organising bookmarks in firefox?

Hi all,

I have two queries.

1. wondering how to move bookmarks in firefox.

I've done a google search and all articles talk about clicking on a bookmark and dragging it to a new location.

Looking forward to any way to move bookmarks for instance from the "other bookmarks" to for instance the bookmarks menu.


2. how can you arrange the bookmarks in the bookmarks menu in alphabetical order.

There isn't any arrange by in the context menu that I could find.


Thanks in advance.

TW Blue Not Speaking with JAWS 2018 Problem Returned

Occasionally, seemingly more often now than a couple weeks ago, TW Blue does not speak when its access keys are pressed. However, I do get the top and bottom of buffer sounds when I exceed those boundaries.

organising bookmarks in firefox?

adam morris
 

Hi all,

I have two queries.

1. wondering how to move bookmarks in firefox.

I've done a google search and all articles talk about clicking on a bookmark and dragging it to a new location.

Looking forward to any way to move bookmarks for instance from the "other bookmarks" to for instance the bookmarks menu.


2. how can you arrange the bookmarks in the bookmarks menu in alphabetical order.

There isn't any arrange by in the context menu that I could find.


Thanks in advance.

I know of one. I believe it's called tile mate. They connect via Bluetooth to your phone. Check out amazon.

Hi group,

If anyone is using object locators which are fully accessible with IOS, I'd like to hear from you. I don't mean an app which identifies objects, but a physical item which can be placed onto an object and then one can find that object using their IOS device.

Thanks for your input,

Thanks Gene, When I have some sighted help, I'll go through the steps you listed and see if I can make it talk.

To turn on the speech, you can try the following:
When the phone is ready, press the middle button, which is surrounded by a border which is more or less circular.
Press the top of the circle five times.
Then press the button in the circle again.
Wait a few seconds, then press the part of the circle on the right four times.
Then pppress the top of the circle two times
Press the button in the middle again.
Press the top of the circle seven times, then press the button in the middle again.
I didn’t look further because I don’t want to accidentally turn off speechh.  Pressing the button once may turn it on.  Then try pressing the second button from the top many times and see if you have speech as you return to the home screen.
 
Do you have sighted assistance who can see what to do when you are at the place where I said I didn’t go further?  It may be that you need to press a button first to save the settings before you back out as I described using the second button on the right from the top.  What the person is looking for is readout and it should be on.
 
Once you have speech, you can tell me what you want to do with the phone, at least immediately..

Could you just tell me how to turn on the speech?  Then, a few more commands would be helpful, also.

Thanks.

I didn't look at the manual much.  I don't think it will be very helpful in learning how to do things.  For example, when you open settings, you can see certain ones by using the up or down arrows.  You can see other items by using the left or right arrows.  The manual won't describe any of this because a sighted person, by looking at the screen, would see that some items are arranged up and down the screen and others from left to right. 
 
I don't know if anyone has done a tutorial for blind people regarding this phone.  I may do one if there isn't one or if it isn't good.  This is a product that you can't learn by reading the manual.  The manual may help you learn how to do things once you have a reasonable amount of information but not before.
 
In addition, some things happen that are specific to improper implementation of speech or for their not being some sort of sleep function for speech.
 
For example, I tried putting a song on the phone and playing it today.  The speech constantly interrupted the song by reading the elapsed time shown on the screen.  I experimented and evidently figured out how to cause the elapsed time indicator not to be shown and the file played well, but you would never see this discussed in the manual because it is specifically a problem caused by some sighted person or people implementing speech with no understanding or thought to how to cause it to not cause serious problems by properly automatically controlling what it reads or simply not having things read such as elapsed time indicators.

Does someone have the accessible manual for this one that you could share?  Or could someone give me a few pointers?  I don't know how to get the speech turned on.  Once I get it talking, I might be able to figure out more of it.  Thanks.

Aside from the alarm problem, how is the speech quality on this phone?  Is it easy to turn on the screen reader?  And are the buttons large and easy to distinguish by touch?  As for a loud alarm clock check out this small pocket-sized alarm clock that Speak to Me sells for about $19.  Besides having loud speech and alarm, it also has an optional vibrating alarm which can be set to go off alone or in conjuntion with one of the selected alarm sounds.  You can keep this clock in your pajama top pocket or under your pillow.  If you use it with the vibrating alarm, it will definitely wake you up:

If this problem can't be solved, does anyone have a recommendation on a very loud alarm clock?

For those with Prime, Amazon bad video links

If you log into amazon, select a show in prime video and scroll down to the, Customers who watched this item also watched, section, do you see things like

instead of an actual show name? Or is this because of a bad browser rendering. I'm using latest chrome.

Hi,

"Robin, you say, Further he
wasn't one to speak of his personal views on things spiritual, how do you know that, you don't."
Please refrain from telling others what they may or may not know. It isn't factual, fair, accurate or necessary. You don't have knowledge of what others may or may not know anymore that others have knowledge of what you do or do not know.
What I was addressing was that Carlos did not enter into discussions of matters of faith or political persuasion on lists publicly ever as I recall. Further just as others wouldn't have knowledge of any personal correspondents you may have shared with him nor would you have knowledge of that which was exchanged between myself and Carlos.
As I said I was merely indicating that never during his time as owner and moderator of this list or a participant on other lists that wasn't the focus of that which he wished to share.
I don't know who did or did not write that poem all I know is the way it was presented here made it seem as though its words and meaning were attributed to Carlos. And I think that is what gave so many pause.
In closing I will once again express gratitude to Carlos for his friendship and his presence on this and many other lists. May he rest in peace and may his memory always be a blessing.
Robin

Hello Robin,
I sure hope you don't mean I actually wrote something this beautiful, but if you are, you are giving me way too much credit. Robin, you say, Further he wasn't one to speak of his personal views on things spiritual, how do you know that, you don't. You also say how would his family feel about seeing something in Carlos's name, once again, this poem was written to mean it was coming from a person who is deceased not a person who is living, and I would think Carlos's family would love to see this. The whole point to this poem is to give hope to living people that their love ones are happy and resting Peacefully, so what is wrong with that, nothing is wrong with that. That is why poems like this are written.
Janet

Hi,
I appreciated the sentiment and am in awe of anyone who can write structured
verse poetry. It's a talent I always wish I had. Still I couldn't help but
wonder how his family and loved ones would feel reading something penned in
his name. Further he wasn't one to speak of his personal views on things
spiritual on lists his own or others which is why it took me aback a bit to
read something of this nature ascribed to him.
I mean no disrespect or to detract still it does cause me some concern for
the reasons stated above.
Take good care.
Robin

Hi All,
Well here it is Christmas once again, and Carlos just sent this so I could
share it with you all. I copied and pasted it below.
Janet

Hi To All!
I see the countless Christmas Trees around the world below,
with tiny lights, like heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear,
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
for it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart,
but I am not so far away. We really aren't apart.
So be happy for me dear ones. You all know I hold you dear,
and be glad I'm spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.
I send you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
I send you each a memory of, of my undying love.
After all "Love" is the gift, more precious than pure gold.
It was always most import in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do,
for I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you.
So, have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I'm spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.

Carlos!

Peace Be With You.
