If you press alt+A you can start speaking.

You do not have to hold any keys down.

If you mic has an on/off switch you must have the mic switch on.

If you are muted you can raise your hand by pressing alt+Y.

Oh, but I like it when systems are like zoom and Skype, because it makes me feel like I'm in the same room.  If no one is mchted, it's like being in the same room, where someone might be saying something funny and you hear laughter at the same time.  Needing to press a key for one person at a time makes me feel isolated.

Hi List, I hope to take part in a Zoom webinar tomorrow and nothing I have yet read regarding Zoom tells me how I can be heard. 

 

I understand about unmuting myself with Alt plus a, but is it just a matter of then switching my mike to on?

 

Is there anything about holding down the Control key while I am talking, in order to be heard?

 

Thanks very much for any tips!

Re: How to be heard in a Zoom meeting?

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Vicky, Zoom is full duplex, meaning that you do not have to press a key to be heard. However, depending on the webinar, you mey be muted by the host so that the presentation can be heard well, and there is no ambient noise like dogs barking etc. If you want to be heard in a formal meeting like this, raise your hand by pressing alt-y. You will be recognized by the host and can then unmute yourself.

If the meeting is less formal, you can just talk as if you were talking in a room with other people.

You may wish to arrive about ten minutes early so that if people are chatting before a meeting, you can make sure you're being heard. A headset is best for communicating like this because it reduces ambient noise. This is especially good if the webinar is being recorded.

HTH,
Ann P.

Re: How to be heard in a Zoom meeting?

joseph hudson <jhud7789@...>
 

Hello, if you're wanting to be heard in a zoom meeting, you have to be sure that you are connected to audio. Then once you were a new dude, then you should just be able to speak. If you want to unmute yourself, just for a short brief time without having to find the unmute button, you can simply hold down the space bar

Can a Bluetooth speaker be paired with BrailleNote Apex

Steven Johnson
 

Hi folks.  The manual says that a headset can be paired, which would lead me to think that a speaker could be as well.  However, my unit can’t find my Bose SoundLink when I get it to search for Bluetooth devices.  Has anyone ever gotten a BrailleNote Apex to pair with a Bluetooth speaker?  If so, what brand of speaker.  I don’t think it likes my speaker.


does anybody use mail washer?

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I've been getting a lot of spam lately and mail washer was recommended. I found the program and installed the free version and as it went through it found my gmail account and asked me which e-mail program I use, it's thunderbird btw, but I can't figure it out from here.

I went online and found a youtube video on how to set up mail washer, and I'm not sure if the guy doing the video had any e-mail addresses set up on his computer or not but he ended up having to set his e-mail up in mail washer, including his password, and as I said above the program automatically detected my gmail account.

If anybody here uses the program, assuming that I've set things up right and am ready to go how do I get a list of my messages that are ready for download so I can go through them and mark the ones that are spam?

Thanks.

Troy


gmail question

Kimsan
 

Hi,

I am apart of an email group where they use google groups.That was for background purposes, I guess.

I am able to post to the group, however, when replies come in from other list members, I don’t see it when looking in outlook.

Come to think of it, I see no posts to the group via outlook, the only activity relating to posting that I see is my own in outlook 2016.

Is there a gmail setting so I can see all posts that come in, not only mine?

 

Thank you,

Re: check disk still will not run on startup

Gene
 

Open the all programs menu in the following manner:
Press the start menu key.
Up arrow once to all programs.
Press enter.
Down arrow a few times until you hear programs start to be announced.
Type a repeatedly until you get to accessories.  I don’t know how your speech will read that but type the letter a until you get to accessories.
Press enter.
Down arrow to command prompt.
Open the context menu.
Down arrow to run as administrator and press enter.
The command prompt will open.
Type chkdsk and press enter.
If it is going to run, it will run and start giving you information.  You may want to stop speech for a time or, if you are using JAWS, switching the screen echo to none may work.  Don’t forget to set screen echo to highlighted after chkdsk has finished working.  Use JAWS key s to cycle through the screen echo choices.  Use screen review keys such as the JAWS cursor to look at the screen to review what is there.

We don’t know if the corrupt files are a separate issue.  If you are using Windows 10, I’ll wait to see what other people say about how to run the DOS prompt.  And you have to run it with administrative priveleges to run chkdsk.  Windows 7 instructions, which I could give might not be the same in one or two ways.

While I don’t know if not being able to run chkdsk makes running system restore more dangerous, it may not be a good idea until you get more discussion. 
 
The best way to run chkdsk without having it fix anything is to use the DOS prompt.  You will have speech throughout and you can see on the screen at the end, what was found and not fixed.  If all you find is that there are some errors such as unused disk space, I’ve always found that when I run chkdsk in this way and after I’ve run it in repair mode, I’ve still found the same errors.  I’ve never had any problems as a result. 
 
If you want instructions on running chkdsk from the DOS prompt, ask here.

Have you tried checking the disk without rebooting just to see what it does? Whether or not it will actually run or not because this will give more information to see what might be the problem.

 

Check out the site below and see if any of the various 5 ideas help. The one that I was thinking was you trying a simple System Restore which is the second suggestion on the site below.

I have been having this annoying problem for weeks and wonder now if I might be better off trying to find some kind of check disk tool if one is available. I schedule it and have used the command prompt at times since I thought that might be even better than going to C drive and properties and scheduling it. Oh I've done that too, by the way, and after numerous normal startups I know it's definitely not checking the disk. I also have it set to repair sectors because I do suspect the hard drive has some sector problems. So it should take a lot longer for the computer to start. But it goes right into a normal boot, and also sfc /scannow won't complete because resource protection won't let it. Please help if you know of any advanced tools or things I can try. Using Jaws 2019 and 2020 and windows 7.

 

Thank you.

NVDA, another who gets shunted aside because it is free is, in fact, highly developed and does about as much as the ones which cost over a thousand dollars but . . . for the most part, and in fact not fancy, do it even better than what you pay for but, free is always suspect.
We're taught, and conditioned that you get what you pay for, but . . . in fact, as a song I learned long ago taught me, "it ain't necessarily so."

Hi folks.  Over this weekend I was burning some CDs.  I used Express Burn on a Win10 machine.  I was using the evaluation version of Express Burn.  After burning 4 discs I was asked to purchase a licence.  Now let me move to Win7.  To complete the project I had to use the Express Burn I had on that machine, Win7 that is.  Again this was an evaluation version but all I had to do was go to "change or Remove a Programme", find Express Burn, highlight it then go to the context menu where I found change/uninstall.  When I click on this I get the option to either uninstall or to downgrade to the free version (which I did).
I went back to Win10 and tried the same but rather than "Change or Remove" I found "Add or Remove.  When I highlighted Express Burn and went to the context menu there was only one option, uninstall.
Now I'm new to Win10 and so may not know the correct place to go or the correct procedure.  Can somebody help please.  It might just be though that the option to downgrade to the free version may not be available in Win10, I just don't know.  Walter.

No I'm on Windows 7, so please provide instructions. I really appreciate your help.

We don’t know if the corrupt files are a separate issue.  If you are using Windows 10, I’ll wait to see what other people say about how to run the DOS prompt.  And you have to run it with administrative priveleges to run chkdsk.  Windows 7 instructions, which I could give might not be the same in one or two ways.

Gene, I absolutely do want these disk check instructions. You were right, by the way, about system restore. I had tried running it and it says it can't because of some corrupt files. But yes if you can walk me through how to run check disk with this command I would very much appreciate it.

While I don’t know if not being able to run chkdsk makes running system restore more dangerous, it may not be a good idea until you get more discussion. 
 
The best way to run chkdsk without having it fix anything is to use the DOS prompt.  You will have speech throughout and you can see on the screen at the end, what was found and not fixed.  If all you find is that there are some errors such as unused disk space, I’ve always found that when I run chkdsk in this way and after I’ve run it in repair mode, I’ve still found the same errors.  I’ve never had any problems as a result. 
 
If you want instructions on running chkdsk from the DOS prompt, ask here.

Have you tried checking the disk without rebooting just to see what it does? Whether or not it will actually run or not because this will give more information to see what might be the problem.

 

Check out the site below and see if any of the various 5 ideas help. The one that I was thinking was you trying a simple System Restore which is the second suggestion on the site below.

I have been having this annoying problem for weeks and wonder now if I might be better off trying to find some kind of check disk tool if one is available. I schedule it and have used the command prompt at times since I thought that might be even better than going to C drive and properties and scheduling it. Oh I've done that too, by the way, and after numerous normal startups I know it's definitely not checking the disk. I also have it set to repair sectors because I do suspect the hard drive has some sector problems. So it should take a lot longer for the computer to start. But it goes right into a normal boot, and also sfc /scannow won't complete because resource protection won't let it. Please help if you know of any advanced tools or things I can try. Using Jaws 2019 and 2020 and windows 7.

 

Thank you.
