ver heard anything that NFB has stopped production.  Maybe there's no further development to make with it.  Also, they may have let the SeeingAI group pick up the slack.

Accessibility of Open Broadcaster Software with JAWS

Debbie April Yuille
 

Hi All

 

I’ve recently heard of Open Broadcaster Software. Does anyone know how accessible it is with JAWS?

 

Thanks

Debbie


Re: KNFB Reader

Gene
 

I don't know where you get your information about what NNFB believes about Android but it sounds like pure nonsense. If you are saying that Newsline doesn't have an Android App, that may be, I haven't checked. But I am very skeptical that your characterization about NFB and Android is remotely accurate.
I have seen all sorts of nonsense about NFB over the years. I am not a member, but I was years ago and I have never seen a propensity to adopt extreme positions such as that, especially when a lot of its members surely use Android.

A brief Google search for NFB Android yields these, among its results:
Introducing Our New and Improved NFB Films App for Android - NFB ...
KNFB Reader | National Federation of the BlindDeveloped by the National Federation of the Blind and Sensotec NV, KNFB Reader is currently available for iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices.
And When NFB discusses Newsline for Android, it mentions android as in the following quote from a web page:
Simply point your smartphone's browser to NFBNewslineOnline.org and access your favorite content using Talkback for Android or VoiceOver for iOS.

If you see something about NFB that sounds ridiculous, be suspicious and skeptical.

USB hubs?

enes sarıbaş
 

Hi all,

With the number of USB devices I own increasing, I think it might make sense to get a USB hub. A few questions.

 With the ones with a wall adapter, can I plug any amount of things into the hub?? Also, when transfering between two drives on the hub, does it split the 5gbps speed of the single USB port, or will the files transfer between the devices in the hub, at the full 5gbps rate?

Hi Victor:

Voice Dream Scanner finally got ported to Androidville; cost, $5.99! If
it's too pricey, it probably won't fly the kite too high 'cause there are so
many choices that are relatively cheaper or perhaps even free.

Prismo in Androidville? No chance, at least for now. At $13.00, it could
be a tough hill climb for its developers.

Is there a way, or an app, that can automatically move through other apps to read content?, example in this message body

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

Is there an app, or a way, that will progress through apps in an automatic routine, on the iPhone XR, and latest IOS, or computer, ? I'm not talking about apps like Alexa where you ask for what you want to include in the Routines within the app. I'm referring to a way or app that will automatically move through other apps. For example, "Read my email new messages". Then, "go to Facebook and read selected friends' stories of interest". Then, go to news and read stories of interest". Then, "Go through the calendar and tell me whether or not I have events scheduled for today". There were a couple of apps, and/or method, I knew about during earlier IOS versions, including one called Voice Brief, that would do certain things like that, but the last time I tried it, it would only read the weather, if I remember right.

Thanks,

Hi Group,

Probably since Windows 7, in File Explorer, when you open it to My
Computer/This PC, you are presented with a tree view and a list view.
You can set This PC in Windows 10 to automatically open to the List view
of items. However, if you run a network like I do, it is quite
convenient to have the Network shown in a tree view one back tab away
to view. Since the latest update of Windows 10 on my main computer, I
no longer see any tree view one back tab from the list view. I don't
know how this happened. I did not change anything deliberately.

How does one display the tree view of items in This PC on Windows 10
File Explorer?

thanks for any help.

Re: KNFB Reader

That really is disheartening, after I spent quite a bit of money on KNFB Reader that they’re not even updating it. But I like Voice Dream scanner a lot better anyways so I think the character recognition is much more accurate.

If you love fragrances, I have a wonderful WhatsApp group for fragrance lovers. If you love to read Christian fiction, I have a wonderful WhatsApp group for Christian fiction lovers and we read books together every two weeks. If you are a Christian woman and want to find other Christian women to fellowship and pray with you I have an awesome WhatsApp group for that purpose as well. Please email me if you’re interested in any of these awesome ways to connect and get to know awesome people.

Looking for a really good bone conduction headset

Dana Leet
 

Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions of a good inexpensive bone conduction headset? My husband and I already have two great sets of aftershocks, but wanted another less inexpensive pair of bone conduction headsets just in case we needed them and didn’t want to take our really good ones with us. Wondered if anyone had any suggestions and have tried any of the ones that are not as costly? If you have recommendations, we would love to know. Thanks, Dana.

I moderate three groups on WhatsApp messenger one of them is for Christian women. The second is for Christian fiction lovers and is a book club that we read new books together every two weeks. And the third is for fragrance lovers. So if you love fragrances are a Christian woman or love Christian fiction and want to join either of my groups please let me know.

Re: OBTAINING A NEW SOUND CARD

Gene
 

If all you want to do is play audio, you can use anything and not install the software that comes with the card. If you want to use other features, such as record, then the question of whether the installation and the software is accessible becomes relevant.

If all you want to do is use the sound card to listen, you can just plug it in and use it.

Re: having sound issues

Gene
 

The question is, at what point do you get no meaningful benefit for additional money spent? But I doubt you need to spend more than something like fifty dollars. I'm not saying you won't get better quality with more money, but will people hear it? AnI think that, beyond a certain point of spending, the headphones or speakers are much more important than the sound card.

Re: having sound issues

Smiling?
 

Of course, but this does not at all mean that a midrange to high range setup is going to sound all that to you as it does to another. This is entirely up to you the user to determine because just like you can not taste anything through anyone else's mouth, you unfortunately can not hear anything through anyone else's ears.

So what sounds phenomenal to one, may not necessarily sound all that great to the next, but once again, without you the user there to determine whether or not you would like or not like… see what I am saying yet? Because after all, you may want more mustard and then again, you very well may hate mustard and not want it at all.

This also applies to actually all of our senses. What's pleasant for one is not necessarily going to be pleasant for the next. So again, it's entirely up to you to see what is best for your ears because once again, you are never going to hear anything through anyone else's ears.

What are you specifically looking for a DAC to do with? Because this may assist with giving helpful/beneficial information even though it is once again, completely and entirely up to you the one who is going to be doing the listening to determine.

Hi,

How much does a very good USB soundcard cost? I bought a pair of high res audiophile grade headphones, and the reviews say you definately need an external DAC/soundcard to drive them to get all the quality.

It seems to be an issue common with dell. I have an XPS 8930, and although I love the machine for the most part, I've had many issues with the sound. I finally ordered a good USB sound card and M going to forgo the onboard sound card.

This has happened to my partner after every major Windows update. She has a Dell Lattitude and is using JAWS. Dell had her disable the Real Tech audio drivers so the computer would use the computer speakers.
This does fix the issue but like I said, every major update re-installs the Real Tech drivers again and this process starts all over again. Hope this helps.
