Using Braille displays on the job?

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I'm wondering, does anyone use a Braille display, largely or exclusively, for work at home or in office? Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Playing the Lottery Online

Are there accessible websites to play the lottery? From what I've heard, the websites are image-based and you have to click numbers in the image. Any help appreciated.


Re: Welcome (back) iPhone SE?

Shelly Kane
 

Thank you Carolyn!  I just ordered mine yesterday from Verizon. It's supposed to be here in a week.  As soon as I can get it going, I will be sure and let you know how it is.  I can't wait because I only have 16 GB's of memory and now I made sure I had enough and I got 128 GB's.  I'm planning on keeping this another 3 to 4 years as long as it works well.  I have noticed that my battery drops quickly and my battery health is at 91%.  So that's not to bad.  I use my phone a lot.

Tell us about it, when you get it.

I'm very excited for this lunch. I have had mine for over 3 years and it has worked great. In fact, I'm ordering mine tomorrow from Verizon. I'm getting mine right away because I need more memory. I was thinking of getting an eight until I heard on the news that this one is finally being launched. These will go quickly.

Re: Welcome (back) iPhone SE?

Here too, but with all the people buying SE's, stock should
stabilize or start back up.

At first, I thought, oh, I wish I could have waited, but not
so sure now. I have teriffic battery life with my 11, and I
understand that the SE has good battery life, but not quite
as good as the 11, and battery longevity is one of my top
priorities.

One technical thing I really like and is another priority
now, and that is that the new phones will work on a wireless
charger. How nice it is to just lay my phone down on the
thing, rather than get out a cable and connect to phone and
power.

Hey Colonel Monte, don't moan; just grab two, I'll come by with Santa
several weeks early to sneak down the chimney to grab the second one and
thus immerse myself in that great, wild garden where only apples grow!

I think the article I posted was a tad too generous in stating that Android
is in 70% of the world. Android has greater penetration worldwide than iOS
does--closer to 80%-85%! But, of course, the iPhone is produced in China and
imported to our countries for resale. If China's 1.3 billion people each
have one, there won't be enough iPhones left to export.

I'm tickled grey to see Apple trying to invade a market where it won't make
real deep penetration. In most countries of the world, $399.99 is hard to
amass; an Android can still be had for, say, $50-$200! It's going to be an
uphill climb for Apple for sure and I hope it doesn't SHOOT ITSELF in both
feet. Anyhow, it's stock was $292 today; perhaps the release of the sE2020
bumped it up 'cause I had seen it dive down to almost $165 recently.

Anyway, when I come grab my sE2020, we'll have a wild party to which no
virus shall be invited!!

Would you try pressing Alt F4 and then Alt Tab and
another Alt F4 until you think that you have shutdown all

Would you try the Leasey command of Tilda followed

shutdown?



I'm afraid I've done so many shutdowns and restarts

I am hoping some safe successful solutions may be

spraining a finger.
Apple
released it in 2016, then stopped selling it in 2018. Now, it's
shockingly resurrecting iPhone SE for 2020, starting at the
(relatively) lower price of $399.

• Looks: Pretty much the same as the iPhone 8 — a 4.7-inch screen with
a frame around it and a home button with Touch ID. The real change
lies on the inside...
• Specs: Better camera equipped with 4K video and portrait mode. Also
boasts a more powerful processor with the new A13 Bionic chip (sounds
legit). Apple

says
it put "the brains" of iPhone 11 Pro in the body of SE.

What interested us most was the timing of this launch... Given the
COVID-19 crisis, this might not seem like the best time to ship a new
product. Apple thinks it's a great time:

list of 2 items
• With the economy in shambles, it makes sense to introduce a
lower-cost phone. The new SE is $200 cheaper than the next "cheapest"
iPhone (and many Android models). A low-cost, high-performance phone
could thrive right now.
• With most Apple stores closed, people can't try before they buy.
Buying iPhones online becomes more attractive with a lower price and
newer product — Apple's trying to drive excitement for online orders
with this launch (people get hyped on pre-orders).

THE TAKEAWAY

Is Apple cannibalizing itself?... Cannibalization occurs when a new
product is so irresistible it steals sales from your other (often
higher-priced) products.
Tesla's Model 3 stole sales from its Model S. But Apple probably did a
lot of research on this risk and decided that:

• More Upgrades: iPhone users might be more likely to upgrade from
their old phones after the launch of SE, with that volume covering
lost sales from pricier models.
• More Market Share: With this lower-priced option, Apple might
convert some Androiders — Google 's Android still controls 70%
of the world's cell phones.
• But if fancy new iPhone users change to the lower-priced SE instead,
that's a problem for Apple.
