Re: nvda and punctuatiion

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Monte,

You can adjust what is read for symbols in NVDA's Punctuation / symbol pronunciation dialog.  Press NVDA+n, then P for preferences, then go down from from there.  For each, you can set what is read, "Dot, period, full stop, etc) and at what punctuation level.  So for punctuation level, NVDA can be set to read none, some, most or all.  Whatever you set in the dialog, NVDA will read at that level and higher.  So if you set a symbol to be read at "most".  NVDA will read it when the symbol level is set to most, or to all, but not at some or none.  If you set it to "all" then it will only be read at symbol level all, etc.

Press NVDA+P to adjust the symbol level on the fly.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: repairing a Victor reader?

Troy, I had this very same problem. Squeezing the halves together did not help. Lol Since the unit still worked the same as ever, I just kept going with it. Months and months later, something happened and it was totally dead. I reordered a new one and am happily reading etc. again. Good luck. Marilyn

Subject: [TechTalk] repairing a Victor reader?

Hi all,

Yesterday I dropped my second generation Victor stream, and evidently it fell on the front where the buttons are because the very top of it popped up just a bit. It still works although the bookmark button and the button I press to go between the online and offline folders are more imbedded and don't stick up as much because of the way the top popped up, does anybody know if that top may be able to just be pressed down and it'll pop back into place? This is an older machine so the warranty has long since lapsed on it, and since it still works I don't want to put out the money for a new one. If the portion of the top that's now raised a bit can be snapped back down that would be helpful though, I don't want to try it myself without knowing if that might work for fear that I might make things worse.

Thanks.

Troy

appreciated.

Thanks.

In my humble opinion, the iPhone does an outstanding job of reading many types of books. I use Overdrive for library books, Kindle, Bard Mobile, Audible and Voice Dream Reader.

Hi,

I have been using an android phone for several years. But now that the new iPhone SE is out I’m thinking of switching to that because voiceover lets me get things done more efficiently and braille display support is much better. Is reading books on iPhone a good experience? Also, the iPhone with voiceover is the only device that supports Japanese 6-dot braille so I could get into studying Japanese language as a hobby if I want.

Hello,

I'm trying to get outlook 2010 working with my gmail account. I've got
imap enabled on the account, and I know it's working because my phone
connects and sends and receives email properly. I configure outlook
and gmail per the gmail doc incoming host imap.gmail.com port 993 and
ssl, and outgoing host smtp.gmail.com port 587, tls, email address and
password where indicated, and that the outgoing server requires
authentication and use same settings as incoming server. When I hit
test connection I keep getting prompted for my email and password even
though I enter the correct information and save password.

Any suggestions welcome.

Also, does outlook 2010 support pgp signing/encryption of email? I've
got a pgp keypair and would like to use it to send encrypted email and
to sign same?

Thanks.
Dave.

paper-based braille for work and home

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

For those who use braille… What do you use or have used in the past to write braille on paper? I have a slate and stylus and perkins brailler but how many of you use braille embossers or braille printers at work with Duxbury? Or are embossers mostly used by sighted transcribers for embossing textbooks and things? I got an embosser on loan for a bit to try out at home and when the corona-virus stuff is over I will send it back because I discovered by using it that a production embosser that prints books and magazines and stuff is not for me and that my slate and perkins manual brailler are more useful. However I will be upgrading to an electric light-touch perkins brailler soon so I can write braille faster and more comfortably because I am used to the light-touch of braille display and computer keys. I had a braille blazer embosser 20 or so yeara ago in school but did not use it much. I used it more as a speech synthesizer rather than an embosser. I used my braille lite with its 18-cell braille display a lot more, along with the perkins brailler.

I used a braille display when I worked for ATANDT. I read from the display to the person that could hear on the phone. Then I typed back to the hearing impaired person on the other end, whatever the person said in response. I was a Communication Assistant on the telephone helping hearing impaired and speech impaired persons with phone calls.

Re: Using Braille displays on the job?

Pamela Dominguez
 

When I was on the job, it was in the early 1990s, and I used a keybraille, which was a 40 cell braille display that functioned with dos. When I took the computer home after that, I was used to the braille display and liked to have it. When I learned windows in the beginning of 2000, I had to get used to not having one. In about 2012, I bought an Alva BC640. I have a different computer now, and I don't remember all that stuff about using the Alva propperly, and how to hook it up correctly to this newer computer. When I do, the computer sound comes through the speaker on the braille display. There was a way to not have it do that, but I forgot a lot of how to set it up correctly and use it. Pam. Pam.

Sharon,

I'm retired, but when I worked at the Iowa Library for the Blind, I used a
Braille display when I was in our circulation software looking up people's
accounts so I could help them get the books they wanted. I had an 80-cell
display, as I needed to see the whole line of someone's data. Often I had
the patron on the phone in my ears, so I used Braille on the computer. I
couldn't have done my job as efficiently without the Braille. Now that I'm
home, I bought myself a 40-cell display; I find that on the Internet it is
often helpful to have the Braille, and it helps with filling out forms and
checking boxes and such.

HTH.

Subject: [TechTalk] the original pen friend, how to use?

Hi all,

I have the original pen friend labeler but I don't remember how to use it, meaning once it's on what button do I press to record and do I need to keep the button pressed while recording? Also, when trying to figure it out a few minutes ago I may've gotten it into another mode because I pressed I think the second button from the top and it beeped twice.

Any help anybody can provide will be appreciated, especially how to get it back into record mode if the 2 beeps means it's in a different mode now, because I don't think I have any of the instruction materials that came with it.
