I'm now going to test Youtube itself. At this point, we don't know if the problem is with Pontes Media Downloader or if it is a general problem with Youtube. Never assume if there is more than one possible cause for a problem. I realized that I assumed with no support since there is no guarantee Youtube is always up and it is guaranteed to go down at some point

The problem is that Youtube once again tried to stop downloading by
programs. I just tested Pontes Media Downloader and it doesn't download
files. This may or may not be similar to what happened recently where some
people were still able to download and a lot weren't. But when the [program
behaves in this way, where it was working properly before, ask here or wait
to see if upgrading the download engine solves the problem. You may want to
try upgrading for a number of days every day. You may save a lot of
unnecessary work and time if you don't tinker with the program such as
uninstalling and installing the program when there is likely nothing wrong
except that Youtube has blocked it until the next update of the download
engine..

I've actually never seen small computer speakers where the cables are not attached. I agree that it's not good, but that's all I've seen. Pam.

As implied in mhy last answer, getting a pair of speakers where the wires
can be detatched and replaced may solve your problem, or I would think a set
of bluetooth speakers would or some sort of USB speakers might. I'm not
sure if you lose sound quality to any extent using Bluetooth speakers. If
you listen to music, you may want to discuss that.

I cant get another cable because the cable that has a short is connected
permanently to the right speaker. I did get another cable, the one that
connected to the pc audio jack.My main issues is to find a pare of speakers
that has a long cord between them. I need about six feet to go across my
work area. All the USB speakers, have short cords. I am looking for another
2.0 or 2.1 satellite speaker system! I just will not use the brand of
speakers I had before. It claimed life time coverage and they refused to
honor it! Thanks Heather

Why not just get another cable? You would save a lot of money. If the speakers stay in one place, that would be by far the cheapest way to solve the problem if it is the cable.

Well, I am thinking after all my testing that one of my speakers has a short in it! So has anyone heard of a set of speakers that does not rely on a cable to connect the other speaker. That one has to rely on a connecting cable to pare both speakers? I refuse to buy a set of speakers where one always has a connecting wire to it, rather just have one that allows one to connect both speakers manually! My speaker with the wire is the one with the short. I had to reconnect the speakers to the pc with a different audio cable to figure out it was not the audio sound card. I am not very technical about what you would call a set of speakers connected by a cable instead of one speaker having a wire that connect to the other speaker. I want to avoid this issue if the one with the wire has the short again! I only had these speakers for 5 years, my others lasted 10 years and I actually gave them to someone when I moved!

Hey Guys,
A while back, some people here seemed to be having problems with their Pontes Media Downloader while mine was working fine.
Unfortunately, recently though, I cannot download anything with it.
I originally had version 2.1. When I tried downloading with that, it would play the downloading sound effect, then a short time later it would play the sound when downloading was finished. So I went and looked in the Pontes Media Downloader folder but nothing was there. I first tried updating the download engine, but it told me that it couldn’t find current version.
Then, I installed version 3.1. I tried downloading some things with that. It would play the sound when a download started, then just do nothing after that. I looked at the menus, and it told me that control-d, the key combo for downloading was unavailable. I waited a bit longer, but nothing appeared in the default folder, which I have not changed.
I then went into Options and updated the download engine, but it told me that the engine was up to date and gave me an Okay button I had to press.
I’m still unable to download anything with it. I did clear out the Pontes Media Downloader folder because someone here mentioned that they had some trouble when more than a dozen or so files were in that. Nothing is in it now, but still no ability to download.
Any ideas what else I can try?
Oh, I’m using Windows 7, and was using an older version of PMD with that until a few weeks ago.
Thanks for any ideas.

Sent from my iPhoneAbout a year ago, when I logged into my Twitter account with TWBlu, it seems that all my contacts and many of my messages were deleted.

Since I bought a new laptop, I logged into Twitter using TWBlu and, sure enough, most everything is gone.

I did try and send a message to someone named Alex and it wound up sending the tweet to a Patrick.

Does anybody have any idea how to fix this? If I log into Twitter on my iPhone everything is as it should be.

Thanks for any ideas and I know this is a crazy story.


bluetooth and USB speakers

heather albright
 

So, I have decided to try blutooth speakers instead of the 3.5 kind! I had a poor experience in the past with the gem2  2 set of speakers, the lag was real bad when one used jaws or NVDA! So wondering if all Bluetooth speakers will have that lag? Also, do you lose the connection or do they stay connected? My old set would lose connection after so much time, it was real annoying! I am thinking of powered Bluetooth speakers  not ones that rely on a battery!

I have a good pare of USB speakers however, I cant use them with my desktop as the cord that goes between the two speakers is to short by a mile! So I have them connected to my fire stick. I am glad I purcheased them when they were on sale for 39 as now they cost 240 woe! In my search, that seems to be a common complaint with USB speakers, their cord is not long enough unless you are using a laptop set up! Thanks, Heather

Re: Looking for NIMH battery charger advice

My DuraCell charger is so compact that it emits no hum or other noise, and doesn't even have a power cord.  It has a retractible plug and a compartment that holds one or two pairs of AA or AAA batteries and nothing else.  I think it has an LED charge indicator, and that's it.  If you want to be sure that your rechargeable batteries last a long time, buy Panasonic Eneloop batteries, which have consistently received top ratings.  I have four Eneloop AAA batteries which I use in my Sony AM/FM Walkman, which provide many hours of service on a single charge, and have been going strong for more than five years. I have two pairs of DuraCell rechargeable batteries which I use for my Philips Sonicare Power Up electric toothbrush, and they last over a month before they need to be recharged.  I hate those expensive electric toothbrushes that require separate charging stands that take up counter space and only last two or three years before they die and have to be replaced.

I don't know how chargers work technically these days.  In the old days, you could put your ear next to a charger and the hum would be different if the batteries are charging.  It would be a rougher sound.  Also, as I said, there are light detectors.

I had a charger where there was nothing wrong with the batteries and it is very unlikely there is anything wrong with any of yours.  But for some reason, the contacts didn't make proper contact with some of the batteries as I continued to use the charger.  I put the batteries in the charger, and would turn one or more batteries until I heard the charger make a different charging hum when I put my ear to it.  I think I would listen, turn, again put my ear to the charger, turn if necessary, etc.  It may have been annoying to hear the sound of turning the batteries with my ear touching the charger so I would listen, move my ear away, turn one or more batteries, and so on.  And of course, using a light detector would accomplish the same thing.

Also, in case of unexpected problems, it would be a good idea to keep a set of alcaline batteries of the kinds you use so that, if unexpectedly necessary, you can use nonrechargeable batteries. These batteries keep their charge a long time, about two years.

It is not necessary to spend a lot of money on an audible battery charger,if such a device even exists in the first place.   I have a simple and inexpensive DuraCell AA and AAA battery charger which has no audible feedback.  So i simply plug it in for six hours with a pair of batteries to ensure that they get fully recharged. I know that the charger is working because the batteries become warm to the touch while they are recharging. Six hours is the recommended charging time for NiMH batteries, which should last about 500 recharging cycles, so they should last a long time before they go bad .

Re: training materials

I don't know what order you read messages, from oldest to newesst or the other way around. I sent two messages containing my Windows 7 transition guide and the other containing my ribbons tutorial. Let me know if you didn't get them.

Gene,

What info are you talking about? I'm not sure if I have that message.

Thanks,

Hello Gene, I am sorry I didn't mention you made materials on different
subjects. I have learned a lot on these lists, but things keep changing,
and no one seems to want to train people who don't get it right away.

I want to thank you for your contributions over the years. Stay well, and I
will keep your information on a thumb drive separate from this computer
(which may go on the blink any time), smile.

Cordially, Ms. Ethel Kirtley








Any list of apps for the deafblind, not just blind?

Hi,


Does anyone have a list, or know about, iPhone apps that are made specifically for those who are deafblind?


Thanks,
