Re: aluminum diagramming foil for tactile graphics and perkins braillers

    Unless the electric braillers have changed over the years you can't type very fast on them.  I knew a man back in the 80's who had one so i tried it and I was not able to braille very fast.  It just made the keys press lighter you don't have to press very hard like on a standard brailler.  There was no sound there was a switch on the right side of the brailler to turn it on and off.  i would not want one unless they made it so you could braille as fast as you can on a standard brailler.  When you braille on it the clicks are louder than on a standard so I would not want to use it for classes.  I think thatit is designed for people who can't press hard enough to braille.

hi
Can the aluminum diagramming foil for tactile graphics, the kind that comes in the APH tactile graphics kits... Can it be used in a perkins brailler? How heavy of paper can a perkins brailler take without breaking or jamming it? Also can the electric perkins brailler, the one costing around $1030 from maxiaids or perkins products braille on the same kind of paper or do braillers have to be specially adjusted to braille on heavier paper? Last, how much louder is the electric perkins brailler versus the standard manual perkins brailler? Is it as loud as the index braille embosser or romeo braille printer I have the privilege to play with for a few weeks. Well I did and I decided a computer driven industrial embosser that can print magazines and hundreds of pages per hour is not for me. So I'll be giving it back soon once the coronaVirus stuff is over with. I just want a brailler that is better than my manual brailler that I can afford and that will let me type much faster without the keys jamming like as what happens if you try brailling too fast with manual braillers, its just how the manual ones are designed thats all just like manual typewriter keys can jam if you try writing too fast. I am used to writing with note takers and computers and want the same experience from a perkins brailler and it seems the electric brailler will give me the computer-like typing experience i want. and i see from the parts list the electric perkins brailler uses solenoids to do the brailling just like a braille printer for computers uses solenoids.

Hi David,
Sounds like you have 2 separate issues here
I don't have an answer for the Gmail issue, but below is one for the address
bar issue.
HTH,

Stop Google Chrome from Storing Browser History - Turn Off Search
Suggestions on Google Chrome

There doesn't appear to be any way to do this from within the browser,
so following the steps below should get the job done:
NOTE:
The following message may be encountered after using these steps, and
although annoying, causes no harm, and can be ignored.

Alert!
Something went wrong when opening your profile. Some features may be
unavailable.
Send feedback to help us fix this issue.
Profile error occurred dialog
OK Button

1. Open Chrome and press, Control + H, to open Chrome history.

2. Tab to, Clear browsing data link, and press enter.

3. Tab to the, Time range combo box open the combo box, choose the, All
time, option and close the combo box.

4. Tab to these other checkboxes to select what you want deleted
permanently. They are as follows:
Browsing history Clears history and autocompletions in the address bar.

Cached images and files Frees up X.X MB. Some sites may load more slowly on
your next visit.

5. Tab to, Clear data button, and press the spacebar or enter to remove the
selected data. Now close Chrome and do the following.

1. Make sure that hidden files and folders are set to show.

2. Use the following path to find the file you need to change, replacing
"your Name", with the name of your user folder
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

3. Press the letter H until you come to "History",
then open the properties, and tab to "read only", and check the box.

4. tab to okay, and press the spacebar.
Alt F4 to close all windows, you are done.

Note:
Changing the file properties to read only prevents Chrome from writing to
it, which in turn prevents it from showing suggestions while typing in the
address bar.
Since this is a file specific to Google Chrome, the properties of this file
may change when the browser is updated.

Hello,

I switched from IE11 to Chrome. In IE11 when entering an address via
the addressbar control+o, I had autocomplete turned off. If I was in
gmail via ie11 and hit tab in either to, cc, or bcc fields and the
contact I was typing in matched an addressbook contact that would be
filled in and another tab would take me out of that field.

In chrome, the autocomplete via tabkey in to, cc, or bcc fields does
not appear to be working and the addressbar I can't turn off it's
autocomplete which I do not like.

Anyone have a fix or suggestions for either of these issues?

Thanks.
Dave.

a computer bootup question

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I've been having to reset my internet connection quite a bit lately and quite often when I shut my laptop down to do this when I start it again my mom says that there's just a dot showing on the screen. I hold the power button down until the machine shuts down and then turn it back on and then there's a wheel spinning on the screen, and I know that means that something is updating and eventually windows does come up, but what does that dot mean? If I let the computer run when the dot is showing instead of powering it down will it eventually come up?

Thanks. I'm even starting to wonder if I need some work done on the machine.

Re: Question about jokes

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 


Hi Shelly,
 
The Verizon domains of, @vzwpix.com, and @vtext.com, are both valid Verizon domains.  The, @vzwpix.com domain is Verizon's MMS domain which means this domain is used for sending larger text messages, text messages that might contain pictures or text messages that have much more than the 160 characters.
 
The Verizon domain, @vtext.com, is Verizon's SMS domain for the standard text messages of 160 characters or less.
 
Spectrum uses the Verizon domains because Spectrum operates its cell business using Verizon towers.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Thank you so much for letting me know about the way of using text messages as your email.  I used to do that a few years ago but the Verizon domain was your number at vzwpix.com.  I'm glad that you told me because I would have used that one.  Now, I will use the vtext.com.  I will be sure and let you know how it goes.

Hi Shelly,

I am not sure if you can get the jokes by text message.  Visit the website and see what they say.  I know there is a way to send and receive text message via phone to computer and via computer to phone.  It's a bit convoluted.

You have to find the domain name of the carrier that you use and then you can probably put that into the e-mail edit field on the joke-a-day website. I have done this in  the past.  for example, my spectrum phone domain is the same as Verizon.  I don't quite know why this is, but it works that way. There are Internet sources to find the carrier domain.  They actually don't list Spectrum mobile, but I read somewhere that Spectrum is using Verizon facilities, so I tried the
Verizon domain which is vtext.com.  So my e-mail address for my iPhone message would be as follows: <ten digit number including area code>@vtext.com.  I have done this both ways to send my phone text messages and to send e-mail to my PC.

Good luck.

Thank you so much for letting me know.  Yes, I do remember you used to send me numerous jokes.  With a joke a day, is there any way I can have them texted to me on my phone?  I really don't do much email.  If not, that's OK.  Just thought I would ask.  I will also tell you about an application that I found on the phone. It's called jako jokes.  You can install it for free and they will send you a joke a day.  You will have to allow notifications and pick the time you want the joke to come.  You can also go on there and find jokes on your own.  If you can't find this, I would be happy to text you some of what I get.  I would need your number though. Take care and stay well.

Hi Shelly,

Most of the old joke lists I used to subscribe to are gone now. Here's one that is still going.  It's called 'Joke of the day.' You can visit the following address:
https://www.ajokeaday.com/
and fill in the form with your e-mail address.  You will get a confirmation e-mail which you must respond to to receive jokes.

There used to be alot of them back in the day.  I used to send you some of them--remember: Humournet with the big Humor Collages came once a week.  Bawdynet which had the blue stuff. Joke of the day is clean.
There was one called Laugh Page.  The moderator was named Osama Alima. Right after 9/11, his list disappeared and I always wondered why; could it have been because of his first name?
Good luck.

Hi Group:


I posted this to the Blind Apples group but no one knew of anything so I thought I would ask this question here.  Sorry for the repeat message for any of you who are on the other list. Does any of you know if there is an application that you can get for your phone where you can get jokes every day?  If not, is there something you can join where they could be texted to your phone? If not, that's fine.  I was just inquiring.  It would be nice to have something sent every day just to have some laughter in these tough times. I used to subscribe many years ago to email lists but I don't do it anymore because I'm on the phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Someone suggested Google assistant but I'm not sure how to use that with an Apple device.

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.

The developers of house party is who you would talk with. If somebody wants it, I will post the information at some point.

Kerryn:



I don't remember having that problem or if I did, I must have bypassed it. I will be honest and tell you that this application is not for blind people. I can call one person using it but when I try to invite people to the room, it's impossible. I talked with someone who is sighted and she said it's very difficult. She said when you open house part, there is a plus sign in the top right hand corner but Siri didn't read that to me. If you can find that, click on it and then you will see a few different options and you would click my friends and then after that, you will go through the list and select who you want to invite. I don't know who we could talk with to see if they would make this more accessible. It's a big disappointment in my opinion.

Kerryn:



You can do it on either. For Apple, it's in the app store and I think for android, it's in the google store. If you are an Apple user, you would open app store and go to search and type in house party and it should come up and then you would hit get and it should download. If you get it loaded, you can definitely contact me.

House party is an app on your smart phone. It's free and you can talk with 8 people or more at a time. It's really cool and you can even play games with your family and friends. My family has been using this since we are unable to get together during this time of crisis.
