Good morning Kay.  I had an SD card do that to me about a month ago.  My computer wouldn’t let me open it, and I couldn’t get JAWS to read the actual volume label.  I was able to get at my documents and make the card work again with the repair functionality of chkdsk under Windows 10.  First, make sure that you know the drive letter of your card; for example, f:.  Do Windows key X, then arrow down to Windows Power Shell Admin, or instead hit the letter A.  A command prompt will open.  Type chkdsk /f /r f: and hit enter.  I don’t think it can do any harm, and it may work.  It takes a while to do its thing.

Hello,

I added a couple of .docx to the text files folder of a card that I have been using for quite some time.  Now when I try to put it in my VRTrek,I get a media 3 error.  So I tried another card and all is fine with that.  So, I decided to put it back in to my computer and the disc name does not come up on the list of drives.  It just says the drive name.  When I press enter on it, I am asked if I want to reformat?  Ok, if it is corrupted is their any way to salvage what is on there?  I have a ton of notes that I really need for classes and things like that.  I have a san disc utility but I don't think that does any salvage functions.  any thoughts?  I have at least 30 GB of books and other things.  Please if you have any ideas, let me know.

Re: reading a Microsoft excel sheet letter by letter

It took me a couple of tries yesterday but eventually hitting f2 and then the home key and using my arrow keys worked.

Yes I am using jaws, I have NVDA installed and I keep saying I'm going to start using it but I haven't yet.

Re: reading a Microsoft excel sheet letter by letter

I don't use Excel, but why NVDA plus up arrow?  That command moves you to the higher level object.  I would think just up arrow on the numpad is what you are discussing, which reads the current object.

As well as Howard's method, which will move through the whole cell contents, with NVDA, you can press NVDA+up arrow twice quickly (or if using laptop keyboard layout, NVDA+L twice quickly) which will spell the current line (press just once to read the text rather than spell it) - so you can read the first line within a cell without going into edit mode - names and phone numbers are probably only on one line each.

Seeking very basic information about the PDI BrailleNote

Steven Johnson <saxmonger@...>
 

I have been asked to digitize some records and tapes for a lady who offers me a PDI (Pulse Data International I am guessing) BrailleNote for my services.  I have never had a BrailleNote, and know very little.  It belonged to her deceased brother, and she has no cords for it.  By description, it sounds old.  My questions are:

  1. Are power supplies for these older BrailleNotes easy to find, or do I have to pay through the nose because they are proprietary?
  2. Can these older units be used as a braille terminal in Windows 10 and JAWS 2019?  I do have a serial port.

 

Thanks in advance for any tips.  I just want it to serve as a braille display and to use it to braille into my Windows 10 PC.


Re: reading a Microsoft excel sheet letter by letter

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

Using NVDA, if you switch to the review cursor and try either the screen echo or object review setting, using the numpad keys 1 2 and 3 you can navigate each cell character by character.

In a cell, hit f2 and it takes you to the edit box at the top of the screen
and then you can arrow left and right to read by charitors. When finished
hit f2 again and you go back to the cell or you can hit enter and go to the
same cell.

Also if you edit the cell from this edit box you need to hit enter to have
the correction be put in the cell and it also takes you back to that cell

braille sense polaris and google assistant

Kimsan
 

Hi,

Not trying to sound lazy, but if you wonderful folks want to rather just let me know where in the help files which section it talks about how to set up

google assistant that would be great.  I just went through a couple of sections and it just kept talking about stuff not relating to what I was looking

for smile.

 

Actually, it might be as simple as grab the google assistant app from the playstore and install it correct?

If indeed that is the case, how do you summon the beast. I think it’s record and play at the same time?

Thank you,

Sincerely,

Kimsan Song
