I know that Font definitely enlarges what is printed. I made a sign one time in centered, bold 24 point type.

Do you mean what appears on screen or what is printede by a printer? I don’t know if this enlarges both. You can see.
Open the menus. Right arrow to format.
Down arrow to font. Press enter. Tab until you get to a combo box where you up and down arrow to change the size. Find the size you want, then tab to and activate the ok button. Read current line before you change the setting so you know how it was originally set if you want to return to the original size.

Re: enlarging print in notepad?

Mike B
 


Let me first say that since I use Outlook Express as my email client the printing font size is controlled through IE11.  I don't know what controls print size with other email clients.
When I want to print something from Notepad it doesn't print out as the size font I want / selected in Notepad.    So, what I do is paste it into an new email and print it from the email.  Below are steps:
 
In order to change your font size for printing from Outlook Express follow the steps below.
 
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Open the view menu with Alt + v.
3. Arrow down to Text Size and press enter or just press the letter x.
4. Now just arrow up and down to the font size you want and press enter to check that sselection.
Personally I use the, Largest, setting.
 
It is the same procedure when printing through Window's Mail.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

It may well change both but since I don't know, I don't want to
assume.  I haven't worked with font sizes and printing in programs.
You can change the font size and see if you are curious and don't want
to wait for other comments.

Re: Facebook live stream problem

I have two computers and on one I am having the problem, and the other live videos play much better.I tried with WiFi and Ethernet,  no difference. So, I was wondering if there is some kind of setting that would make a difference?

I do a lot of Facebook Live streaming and noticed the same thing.  I contacted Facebook about it.  They said there is a lot more back end processing going on when the stream is live than there is when the archive recording is played.  I almost always get better results playing archive recordings that Facebook makes than listening to live streams.

Your mileage may vary.

My Phone is a samsung galaxy
 
Is there anything in particular I should look for in a bluetooth keyboard that will be used on such a  phone.?
 
I know it will need to be  syncronized with the phone, and I am sure my cousin could do that for me.

What size font would make normal-sized printing? My mom tells me that when I write something in notepad and when I print it out that the print is too small both on the screen and on the printed page.

Blindshell Classic warranty question

Laz
 

Hi all,

I believe it was on this list where gerald asked a question about what
would happen if a Blindshell Classic needed to be repaired...

Here is my answer to that. If you bought the Blindshell Classic from
us, we will replace it with another one. We'll then take the necessary
steps to sort things out with the manufacturer and if it needs to be
shipped anywhere it would be on our dime, not the customers.

I hope that helps.

Regards,

Laz

BlindShell Classic

Nancy Hill
 

Hi Group,


A while ago I had considered the Blind Shell Classic and had some questions.  A kind person who had a Classic contacted me and now I can not find his contact information.  I am thinking his name was Joseph/Joe and I would appreciate it if he would contact me again.


I have more questions and would really like to get his opinion on a couple of thingsthat have come up.


Many Thanks,

Nancy

Hello all,

Today I released a little game that I was working on the past few days. It is called BlindMaster and it's a logic game about deducing a secret code by listening to audio hints provided by the computer.

I hope it is okay that I announce it here - I thought that perhaps some of the readers here will find it interesting. The game is available for Windows and Linux.

http://blindmaster.sourceforge.net

This is my first attempt at creating an accessible game, hence I certainly made many ergonomic mistakes.

The current version is 0.9 and it is a beta production. The audio recordings are all computer generated, this will change in future versions to feature proper human recordings.
