Date   

The Blaze ET, do you like it?

Steven Johnson <saxmonger@...>
 

One of my dear friends is lending me a Blaze ET on a long-term basis if I get it repaired by HIMS.  I figure that it will cost around $100 because it has a damaged charging port.  After looking at the user guide online, it sounds pretty neat.  I know that its operating system is Android.  Does it tend to be pretty stable, or does it freeze up a lot?  I see that it has Bluetooth capability.  Can it be paired to a Bluetooth speaker, or is that functionality only geared toward HIMS braille displays?  Thanks for your feedback.


Question: Transferring MP3 Files From PC to iPhone

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

I have some mp3 files on my PC that I would like to transfer to my iPhone.  When I connect my iPhone to a USB port on my PC, I see the device and when double clicking on it, I see a folder named Internal Storage. When I first tried to access this folder, the iPhone asks me if I want to allow photos and pictures to be transferred. I clicked allow.  That is the only option the iPhone gives me.

Is there any way to directly transfer the mp3 files to the iPhone? Thanks for any help.

Hi Kay,
 
Thank you for your explanation of the buttons on the back.  The directions that are given don't explain these buttons at all other than saying, * On the back of the clock, there is a switch to toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit.*

I'll keep your email address in case I need to ask a question or 2.  Thanks again.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Like I said, I have two of these and I like them.  The hydrometer is a bit slow to change but it does and they are both quite accurate.  It is easy to set up once you know  what the buttons on the top do and there are three more on the back.  the top one on the back is for daylight savings time on or off.  The next one down is the time zone button and the bottom one is for Fahrenheit and Celsius.  The top buttons are in a circle with the speech button in the middle.  When you get the clock Mike I'd be happy to help if you need it.  Chances are though that you'll be fine.

Hey Mike, let us know when you receive this talking clock from FutureAids, and how well it works.  Given the current national health crisis, you may not recieve it for a while,because it is shipped as free matter for the blind. In my experience under normal circumstances, it takes about 7 to 10 days to receive an order from FutureAids once it has been placed.  Take care.

There is an NVDA add-on that opens a system tray dialog, the same kind of dialog that JAWS opens.  But I don’t know if a new updated version has been released to work with the new version of NVDA.

A wort is when you have combined all the ingredients together to make beer.

A must is the same but for wine.

A hydrometer is used to measure the specific gravity of a liquid.

This tells the brewew or vintner when fermentation has reached the desired point.

Of course, our ancestors   could do this by smel and taste.

Hi, I am also looking for temp and humidity sensor, but wanted it to
work with Amazon Alexa. they have some window and door sensors that
have temp/humidity as well as vibration builtin.

Maybe that ight be worth a look.

A wort is when you have combined all the ingredients together to make beer.

A must is the same but for wine.

A hydrometer is used to measure the specific gravity of a liquid.

This tells the brewew or vintner when fermentation has reached the desired point.

Of course, our ancestors   could do this by smel and taste.

No, I have never heard of one, but then again,   I could still see when I used a hydrometer to measure the ph of my worts and musts.
