Hello again,

No there is no alternative keyboard and the thing is it seems to be with the HP brand of computers. My student purchased one last year and the problem was there and died within six months (the laptop not the student).
Theatre gave him replacement unit and the issue occurredonboth systems. I’vealso worked with a 3rd computer of the same make and model and the same thing occurred on that unit.

Thing is that when the right alt is pressed, it does not performs regular task; e.g. Alt=f4 won’t close the programme.

Thoughts?

Hi all,

Does anyone know a fix for a laptop running windows 10 and JFW18 that whenever the right Alt keys pressed it behaves and says that “alt+Ctrl” has been pressed.  Any ideas on a fix?

Hi Melissa,

If you’re using wired headphones, that may the challenge. However it bluetooth or USB, then that may prove less of a challenge for you.

I used a usb headset hthisweek so I put jaws in these and the participants on the system speaker.

Re: hard drive cloning

Smiling?
 

You will need to get yourself a software that will successfully image your
one drive so you can then place this same data upon the new drive and then
you will most likely want to resize the drive after transferring your image
seeing as you stated that you were interested in going from a 500GB to a 1TB
drive.

I myself would use Image for Windows to accomplish this, but there are more
software's out there than just Image for Windows and some cost nothing.

Re: A couple of GoldWave questions

Hello Steven, the auto trim has now been changed to Trim Silence.  To get to it, go to edit, the trim sub menu, and choose silence.  Alternatively, you can press control backspace to access the trim silence dialogue.  To change the rewind and fast forward speed, press F11 and you will find yourself on the play tab.  Shift tab to the rewind and fast forward edit boxes, and you can then change the settings to the speed you want.  Hope this helps.

Good day everyone.  I have a couple GoldWave questions for those of you who use it.  Where do I find the autotrim feature?  I have some sound files with a long silence at the end, and I remember that earlier versions would scan for silences at the beginning or end of files and remove them.  Also, I used to be able to make GoldWave rewind, fast forward and play even faster than the change of speed that you get with shift-L and shift-J.  It seemed that you could make GoldWave rewind up to 4 times faster than the fastest speed attained by doing shift-L a bunch of times to speed it up.  Thanks for your help.

Re: is victor stream second generation the same as victor stream new generation

I got mine when they had some kind of a sale where all you have to do is pay for the shipping. There appears to have been a victor vibe, and a victor wave. I don't know anything about whether that was really true, or whether it was a rumor, because I just know about the vibe. Pam.

I believe that I have a Victor Vibe player. Learning Ally, formerly
Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic, was selling them at a discounted
price of $64.00. I had been an RFB member during my high school days but
this player was available much later and I didn't think I'd want one,
despite the price, as I didn't see myself reading books from RFB at that
time. My wife convinced me to get the player as she said that there
could come a time when I'd want to return to school. I decided she was
right and I also realized that RFB had plenty of books that interested
me beyond what I'd need for classes I might decide to take. It was a
nice player, which could play DAISY CDs, regular music CDs and
MP3-formatted files. It had no ability to connect to and download books
from the Internet but, as a CD player, I liked it but I admit I haven't
used it in years.

They used cds.
They looked liked a clamshell style cd player. Ancient technology these

I had one for a short while.

Thanks again to all of you who have been addressing my concerns about purchasing this cell phone. Carolyn, I live in Sheridan, Wyoming. We have no Target or Best Buy. We do have ATandT service here, believe it or not. Someone emailed me privately suggesting the quality of the service in my area might be the catch. So, I queried on Facebook, tagging my friends here in Sheridan. One of them responded that she's been happy with the service here. Of course I didn't think to ask if she uses a network like what Laz offers or gets it directly from ATandT.

Surely that wouldn't make a difference. I once had a Jitterbug, which, I think, was similar to Laz's arrangement except it used the Verizon tower. It worked pretty well except it didn't talk.

Ron, I'm not too concerned about data. The phone doesn't have a web browser, but it has email, YouTube, and Internet radio. I'll primarily use these features at home with wifi. By the way, the phone's book reader allows you to download recorded books from Libervox.

So, I'm feeling pretty good about this. Laz, I'll be in touch when I'm ready to purchase the phone. It'll be a few weeks, since, as I said earlier, I've got other expenses so will need to wait until my proverbial ship from the government comes in. Thanks again to all of you for your help and for recommending Laz. I look forward to doing business with him.

A couple of GoldWave questions

Good day everyone.  I have a couple GoldWave questions for those of you who use it.  Where do I find the autotrim feature?  I have some sound files with a long silence at the end, and I remember that earlier versions would scan for silences at the beginning or end of files and remove them.  Also, I used to be able to make GoldWave rewind, fast forward and play even faster than the change of speed that you get with shift-L and shift-J.  It seemed that you could make GoldWave rewind up to 4 times faster than the fastest speed attained by doing shift-L a bunch of times to speed it up.  Thanks for your help.


Re: BlindShell Classic

You can have unlimited talk and text with them for $20 minus 5%, if you are a member of AARP and give your AARP number. You can have that with 500 mb of Internet for $25 and the same 5% AARP.

I am not sure if it is a new phone or moving from NVMO to AT&T, but the phone I have now sounds really clear, and most things don't these days, despite my hearing aids.

Hi Ann,

If Joseph meant mega bytes, he said 5 MB, that's not very much data for one month. If you streamed one song, that would be it.

Hi all,

No, you mean MB for Megabytes, not millibars. Millibars are gradations of air pressure. It's the same abbreviation so it's comfusing, but you mean megabytes.

Hi Ron, no typo here. 500 mbar is a plan from the phone carrier that I have.

HI Monte,



Joseph's reference was to cell phone provider features. I would have expected the information to be something like: Unlimited talk and text plus 1 GB data per month.



He referenced this MbAR instead. That doesn't make sense--unless either there's some way of measuring data that I'm not aware of or it was a typo.

What is 5 mbar?

Hello, you don't even need one gig of data in order to run that phone. It all depends on how often you're going to use it for listening to YouTube and stuff like that. I am only used .20 MB at the most with the phone. I recommend getting the I am from a company called consumer Sellier if it all possible in your area. They have a plan just for five bucks a month that will give you 5 mbar and unlimited text and talk which will be more than enough for this phone. And if anybody decides to do this offer, please contact me as I will give you an additional $10 off of your first month just by giving you a referral. If you've never been with this company before.

I'm also considering purchasing the Blind Shell Classic phone. Mystic Access now offers a free tutorial that can be downloaded from their site at http://www.mysticaccess.com. You'll need to search for the product, and you'll find the link to download the tutorial on the product page. They also did a free class in February on the subject, and you'll find a recording of that on the free downloads page.



Mystic Access is now distributing the phone. What's more, for an extra $19 set-up fee, they'll activate the phone with a network that uses the A T and T tower. This network only charges $20 a month for unlimited talking and texting and 1 gig of data. The down side is that you have to install the battery and sim card, which is something I've never done with a cell phone, and I'm not particularly mechanically inclined. Otherwise, it's a good deal.

Sis Carolyn, I don't know the configuration of the dial pad
on an iPhone; in My Android world, I just use the phone
dialer app that came preinstalled on my toys; I can, of
course, install a different one and switch to it if I so
desire.

For example, the Asterisk (or star) symbol is below the
Number7 on the dial pad; if I place my finger on it for
about two seconds, it enters a comma continuously until I
lift my finger. I think each comma entered gives a
five-second pause before the next action is performed.
Typically, a ten-second pause has always worked for me, but
may be a 15-second one is equally good, but I've never tried
that.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
