Re: Libre office again?

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Jim, I have a few follow-up questions.

1. Which version of JAWS are you using?

2. What application within the LibreOffice suite is behaving sluggishly? Is it Writer, Calc, etc.

3. Which version of LibreOffice?

4. When is it becoming sluggishness? While typing in a document? Navigating with arrow keys? Navigating within menus, etc.

Sonos and shared music folders on home network

Alan Robbins <arobbins1057@...>
 

One thing I’ve never been able to make work is the option to add shared music folders/locations from a PC on the same home network as Sonos. I type the path according to the example Sonos gives in the edit box but it always says it cannot locate the computer or something like that. If I go to another  computer on the same home network and type the same string in a run command line I can find it and play whatever I like. Below is the exact path I type in Sonos :

\\terrie-intelnuc\data-music\my music

Are others able to utilize this feature?

LUCIA CELL PHONE

TerriLynne Pomeroy <tl1@...>
 

Has anyone tried this phone? Here is some info:

 

LUCIA CELL PHONE

The philosophy behind Lucia is straightforward: it is an easy-to-use alternative to a smartphone.  It is also 100 percent accessible thanks to its very intuitive voice guide.

 

The phone supports talk and text only; it does not support data.  However, despite this fact, it offers quite a bit of flexibility and some very interesting features. 

 

Physical Description

Lucia is five-and-a-half inches long, three-and-three-quarter inches wide and three-quarter inches deep.  It fits nicely in the hand and has a sturdy feel.  The display is two inches wide and a little more than one-and-half inches high.  The display is very bright, but people who are blind can turn it off to save battery power.     

The buttons are large and well-spaced. The tactile feel is excellent thanks to the fact that the buttons on the T9 keypad are concave.  The buttons used to navigate the menu system, place a call and end a call are different shapes and colors.

At the top of the right edge of the phone is a circular button that serves three functions: when pressed while at the home screen it provides the time, date, battery strength and signal strength.  When long pressed at the home screen it turns the voice guide on or off.  When pressed elsewhere it repeats whatever is on the screen.  The button below this is a square button that amplifies the audio while on phone calls.  This feature is for people who are hard of hearing.  The final physical feature on the right edge of the phone is a slider that is used to power the phone on and off or to lock the phone.  On the left edge of the phone is the volume rocker.  

On the top edge of the phone is the hole for a 3.5 mm jack.  On the back of the phone is the SOS button, discussed in detail below. 

The back panel can be removed to access the battery compartment.  The battery is replaceable, which is a nice bonus.            

 

The Voice Guide

The Lucia phone has a voice guide that allows users who are blind to use every feature of the phone.  This is the phone’s real “magic.”  While it speaks everything that is on the screen and everything that is pressed, it actually does considerably more than that.  For example, if I am in the Call Log menu, the display might show that I have a missed call from “Robert.”  But the Voice Guide says, “one missed call from Robert.”  So, in some cases the Voice Guide provides more information than the display itself.    

In addition, the Voice Guide provides other useful information, such always saying “Lucia is ready” when the user is at the Home Screen, allowing the user to always know where they are in the menu system, and tell me when the charger is connected or disconnected.  Also, the Voice Guide has a “Talking Watch” which speaks the time. 

The Voice Guide can speak in a number of languages, including English, Spanish and French, and the user can select different voices.  The Voice Guide audio can be made quite loud for those who are hard of hearing and is very clear.           

 

Making Calls

There are three primary ways in which someone who is blind can make phone calls. 

First the user can simply dial the number from the home screen.  As the digits are pressed, they are announced by the Voice Guide.  The Voice Guide can also repeat the entered digits, if needed.  If you delete a digit, for example the digit 5, the Voice Guide will say “5 deleted.”        

Second, the user can go to their Contacts, scroll through the various names as they are spoken by the Voice Guide, and press the Call button when the user hears the name of the person that they want to call. 

Third, calls can be placed directly from the Call Log, which provides an option to dial missed calls and previously dialed numbers. 

Lucia does not currently support voice dialing, but this feature will be added in the future.  Having said that, calling with the help of the Voice Guide is extremely easy.     

 

Accessing Missed Call Information

Blind users can access missed call information with the assistance of the Voice Guide.  Lucia will provide the name of the person who called (if the caller is in the contacts), as well as the call’s time and date.   

Users will be notified of missed calls with a chime.  If desired, Lucia can be programmed to vibrate, as well.  Also, when there is a missed call or missed text message, the LED light will flash blue, which is useful for people with low vision.   

 

Sending and Receiving Text Messages

Lucia’s Voice Guide allows users who are blind to send and receive text messages.  While typing a message with the old T9 keypad takes some time to master, the process of sending and receiving messages is very simple.  And text can be edited with ease. 

Users will be notified of incoming messages with a chime and Lucia can be set to vibrate, as well.  As with missed calls, the LED light will flash blue when a text message is received.         

 

Entering Contacts

The blind user can enter contacts independently.  With the help of the Voice Guide, the process is intuitive and simple. 

 

Status Information

The Voice Guide provides a number of pieces of information that fall into the “status” category.  Specifically, it will speak the battery level, the signal strength, the time and date and the name of the wireless provider.  This information can be accessed by pressing the Status button on the top right edge of the phone while at the Home screen.  Moreover, the user can customize the information that is spoken.  In other words, if the user wants Lucia to speak only the amount of battery remaining and not provide the other status information, this can be done. 

 

Setting Alarms

Lucia has a comprehensive alarm system.  A user can set a one-time alarm or repeating alarms.  For instance, the user can set an alarm to go off every morning at 9AM.  The alarm can be accompanied by a reminder message.  For example, the message can say “remember to take your medication.”  Lucia can save hundreds of alarms at one time.       

 

SOS Button

Lucia has a physical SOS button at the back of the phone.  To prevent unintended activation, the button must be held for three seconds to activate.  When activated, the phone starts calling up to five emergency contacts stored in the phone.  If one of the called persons does not answer, Lucia will call the next person and so on, until someone answers the call. 

The majority of people who use Lucia will be seniors, so this feature should be quite useful for many users.  It provides an additional layer of security at no additional cost.      

Like all of Lucia’s features, the SOS feature can be set up by someone who is blind, with the assistance of the Voice Guide.

 

Features for Low Vision

As discussed above, the buttons are large and nicely spaced.  The buttons on the T9 keypad are concave to provide an excellent tactile feel.  The buttons used to navigate the menu system, place a call and end a call are different shapes and different colors. 

The display has good contrast and supports seven different color schemes.  Font size is not adjustable class=”table-bordered” but large, and the most recently typed character is always displayed in extra-large font size.  For example, when typing a phone number, the most recently typed digit is one inch high; the other digits are almost half an inch high.  

 

Wireless Service

Lucia is unlocked and operates on AT&T, T-Mobile or other wireless providers that operate on one of those networks.  Plans for unlimited talk and text are available for as low as $19 through prepaid wireless providers, such as Red Pocket.

The domain gamesfortheblind.com expired in 2010. The author is Robert Betz, perhaps you might try some google research to locate him. Apparently in 2011 he was trying to raise 10K dollars on kickstarter for creating a connect-four game for the blind, unsuccessfully it seems - but at least we know he was still alive at that time.

Zoom

Susie Stageberg <sstageberg2@...>
 

Howdy all.

 

Everybody seems to be doing Zoom meetings these days. Our church choir director is talking about having a Zoom meeting since we can’t all be with each other.

 

I have a Windows 7 computer, no camera, no microphone, not even Bluetooth. I also have an iPhone 7.

 

Is Zoom an app? Am I better off doing it on the phone, since it has a camera? Do I have to do anything special on the phone to make this work—like turning off the screen curtain or some other setting? I admit to being a rank amateur here.

 

Help!

 

Susie

Hello Robin

Maybe I am just stupid but the sonos support people make it so difficult to ask for support that it is not worth while all the trouble. A shame for a company with such excellent but expensive products.

Hi,

You can use airplay to play that which is on your phone through Sonos but I don't think you can get music resident on your phone to show up within the Sonos app. If I'm incorrect I'm sure others will chime in but this is the only way I've known it to be. o you're correct you can add the library you might have on a pc or networked drive as long as it's powered on it can be accessed but I do not believe the same holds true for the phone.

Take good care.

When I was on the text that I wanted to copy and paste, I did the 3 finger triple tap and that turned screen curtain on and then I tried a 2 finger triple tap and the speech turned off. I'm not tech savvy at all. Sorry about this. I can usually follow directions if they are simple.

To do this on the PC, when you find the text you want to copy, make sure your cursor is at the beginning of the text. Press Shift Plus Down Arrow. This selects the text, and your screen reader should read the text being selected and tell you it's selected. When you reach the end of the text you want to select, press Control Plus C to copy. Go to your timeline and press Control Plus V to paste the text into the edit field where you write your post. If you need more help, you can email me off list.

Hi Shelley, I just downloaded house party end it looks like you have to add friends in order to invite them to a conversation from what I have gathered and I’m guessing next to the friend button, there will be an invite button to invite them to a conference. If you would like to try this, my link to add me is below.

Hello Robin

I hear what you say but I am sure there was an item in Sonos on my iPhone 7 which said something like “music on this iPhone”. I do not know what is the use of the sonos app if I can only stream radio stations and music from my pc. Maybe I am just stupid but the sonos support people make it so difficult to ask for support that it is not worth while all the trouble. A shame for a company with such excellent but expensive products.

 

Regards

Fanus

Hi,

I don't think you can. You can use airplay to play that which is on your phone through Sonos but I don't think you can get music resident on your phone to show up within the Sonos app. If I'm incorrect I'm sure others will chime in but this is the only way I've known it to be. o you're correct you can add the library you might have on a pc or networked drive as long as it's powered on it can be accessed but I do not believe the same holds true for the phone.

Take good care.

Robin

I loaded lots of music on my new iPhone 11. Now I installed the Sonos app
and it piciked up my sonos system but it just shows radio stations but no
music on my phone. In system settings there is an option to add folders but
one has to type a name, so I assume that is for folders on a pc which runs
sonos. How do I get sonos to see the music on my iPhone?

Hi Ann,

You write that you have been getting the message about the motor for years.
This makes you a truly unique individual as no one else seems to have heard
of such an item.
I hope this notoriety bodes well for you!

Hi all,

Well, I knew I didn't want one, but I've been getting this spam for
years, and finally had the time to inquire what l'deuce it was! As I
said before, I'm getting more and more like Pal every day, more curious!

What an odd offer! It's an induction  motor, usually operating on
three-phase electricity, which us mere mortals have absolutely nothing
to do with nor any need for. They're used in high-capacity
applications suchb as pumps and moving large objects like elevators.

I was just going through my junk folder and I keep seeing these

off the wall question, but what the heck is an asynchronous motor?  
Of course I'm deleting the spam, but since I'm getting more and more
like my cat everyday, curious, what on earth is it? Is it a figment
of the imagination, or are their really asynchronous motors?   If the
parts of the motor aren't syncked, wouldn't that prevent the motor
from operating correctly?   Just something innocuous to think about
when the rest of the world is going to hell in a hand basket.
