Thanks Lynn. I appreciate the heads up about the classic skins. I will be sure to maintain those.

Hi Terry,

 

Most of the time, I don’t think it matters.  But, I had so much trouble installing Winamp, as a last desperate measure, I did a custom install and it took.

 

As you will probably find out if you perform a custom install, there are not a lot of steps as compared to Standard.  Don’t forget to use classic skins.

 

I’m afraid that if the current owners of Winamp don’t create a major upgrade, it will be obsolete.

Hi Lynn,

Thank you so much for your quick response. I did download Winamp, but would love opinions on customizing versus standard install.

 

Also, if you prefer customization, what differeing choices are you making that I might also want to make?

 

Thanks much,

To be sure, go to www.winamp.com and download the beta which I think is 5.8

 

Some older versions of Winamp will not work with some Windows10 machine.  I'm a witness that this does happen.  Don't know why, but the older versions such as 5.72 won't work on a couple of my machines.

Hello List,

I'm trying to learn how to use a smart phone.

I can use Assistant to dial phone numbers, and that works. Only one thing. Talkback continues to talk while I am on the phone.

Is there a way to make that stop? I know that I can call using the Dialer, but would that be any different from what I am experiencing? I can't locate the Dialer.

I thank you for any ideas you folks have.

Re: Looking for a talking thermometer

Gerald Levy
 


I have already checked Amazon, ILA, Maxi-Aids and FutureAids, and none of them have talking clinical thermometers in stock.  ILA expects to have them back in stock on March 27.  I have the Health Smart DigiScan talking forehead thermometer somebody else previously mentioned, but find that it consistently registers on the low side.  My forehead readings are almost always below 98 degrees F, although they are usually a little higher when the probe is inserted into the ear canal. Oral and rectal thermometers are the most accurate, if not necessarily the most sanitary.   .

• Fine-tuned treble and bass control to bring out the highs and lows, or to minimize them. You have a free music studio in your pocket!

• Use the free audio editor to trim the recording to edit out slow starts and stops.

• Animated cover art so that you can share your audio tracks directly to social media or SoundCloud.

• Use your favorite external mic with our recording app to color your sound even more.

Hope this helps

Anyone know where I could find a clinical talking thermometer? I searched Amazon and did not find one except in Spanish. I saw them last week, I guess there is a run on these as well.


JAWS Screen Shade not Working with External Monitor

Debbie April Yuille
 

Hi All

 

Has anyone else found that the screen shade feature doesn’t work if you are using a desktop PC with an external monitor? I activate the command and it reports that it’s on but I can see that it isn’t. I’ve changed Monitors and it makes no difference. I’m using the latest builds of both JAWS and windows 10.

You can buy stereo microphones that plug into the Lightning port for the iPhone, but the iPhone records in mono from its microphone.  My wife’s Samsung A70 records in stereo from its mics though.  She records videos of my gigs with it, and they sound really nice.

You can monitor the recording by plugging headphones into the headphone jack on the Book Sense.
You may have to play around with the output level a bit before you really get started. I don’t know whether the Microphone Sensitivity setting also works with line in recordings or not. You will get some serious audio compression if the level is too high.
Fortunately, you should be able to hear whether that is happening pretty quickly if you listen to it while it’s recording and find a good output level.

How much does the player cost?  Would it make more sense to purchase a digital recorder and a less expensive book player for reading? 
 
Or, perhaps do you have a laptop already?  Getting a USB external sound card with a line-in jack would be much cheaper than anything else.
