Newline talking bathroom scale help needed

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

Last week Gerald Levy and one other person recommended a talking bathroom scale, it looks like the brand name is Newline from what it shows on amazon. I bought it and got it yesterday but after inserting the batteries so far all my mom and I can get it to do is to say please wait when we tap it, then there's a beep a few seconds later and then the scale shuts off.

My mom has been the one doing this so far so I'm not sure at what point she steps on the scale but what might we be doing wrong? Is there a certain procedure to follow to make the scale work?

Btw my mom says that after it says please wait there's some letters that come up on the display that she says looks like out 2, but she says that she's not sure because apparently the entire letters aren't shown.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Troy


Re: Zoom Workshop By Landline

Margaret Thomas
 

Thanks to everyone who replied. There's possible good news. I found my microphone. It's been there for ages and I have never used it. I may have gotten it with the XP machine. Is there any way of testing it somewhere before the workshop so I can tell them if I need the landline?

Thanks,

Margaret

Hi all,

Actually, that's why I suggested that people download Mosen's tutorial. There are scripts for Jaws 2020 that are added into the software, but you can get them separately I think.

Most folks don't need to know that much about Zoom beyond a few keystrokes, like alt-a and alt-y and altf9 for chat. Alt-u brings up a list of the participants.

Re: Zoom Workshop By Landline

Gene
 

That doesn't explain what you do after you get into the meeting. This discussion may be far longer than those not particularly interested may want to read. Those interested who at present know almost nothing or nothing, may find it very useful.

You can find most things in Zoom once you are in a meeting. The Zoom interface isn't available before then, as far as I know. How are blind people supposed to learn about it if it isn't available before you are in a meeting?

A sighted person can look at the interface and see all sorts of things quickly. A blind person has to tab and tab and tab while in a meeting to see what is available.
Thus, for casual users, who intend to attend meetings, some description is important.

When you are in a meeting, tabbing will show you things such as a membership panel which shows you, in a list everyone attending.
There are also important things you get to by tabbing such as the mute and unmute button. Everyone is unmuted all the time unless they mute themselves or the host of the meeting mutes them. I think this is ridiculously bad design. People should be muted and have to do something to talk. I don't want to hear dogs barking, doorbells ringing, tea kettles whistling, someone coughing, someone rustling papers, etc.

If you want to mute yourself, you can use the shortcut alt a which toggles mute on and off, or you can tab to the mute button and press the space bar, which does the same thing.

You will see more if you turn on fulll screen. This again, is a button you can tab to that toggles it off and on.

If you are not muted and you are tabbing around listening to your screen-reader on speaker, everyone will hear you. Don't do it. If you are using headphones, its better to mute yourself so people won't hear your keyboard clicking but it won't be nearly as bad as if you are using a speaker.
Also, when you join a meeting, if the meeting is opened, you will tab around and see places where you can test your audio and microphone before joining the meeting. This is important to do the first time you join a meeting.
Aside from those test, you will see ways of joining such as join with computer audio and buttons that say things like start my video.

My point in going into all this isn't to tell you everything you might want to know. for example, there is a chat area you may want to know how to use. I haven't used it enough to give a proper description. My point is to describe how you can see and learn a great deal by just tabbing around. If good tutorials go into the kinds of things I am describing for the casual user before going into the more essoteric ways of using Zoom, they would be well worth working with for the casual user or the user who wants to learn more about the program and who now knows nothing or little. You need a good foundation before moving to the more essoteric ways of using the service. I'm also going into all this to demonstrate that you need not be apprehensive about Zoom. So much of it is available by just tabbing around that you can use it even if you know little or forget some things like this or that short cut command.

Re: NVDA Settings

Gene
 

Unless you have changed the default settings, if you have a Dropbox account and have uploaded it to that account, there is already a copy on the originating computer. So running it on the originating computer is just running it from that computer.

On a computer that isn't the originating computer, if you have it in the account you are using but it isn't actually on your computer, as in a shared account, I don't know what would happen. I should have clarified that in my last message. But since you can run the portable version from your internal hard drive, if you download it from Dropbox, you can run it after it is downloaded.

I've played around with it so if you have a specific question maybe I
can help. When you first download it, you type in nfb2020 in the
search (keeping in mind it is lower case and all one word) then in the
event ID you type nfb2020 in again. It will ask you to enter the info
you registered for the convention with (I don't remember if you can
look at it without at least entering some info) then it will take you
to your profile screen. You can enter as much or as little as you want
others to see (or none at all). The info for the convention is very
accessible. When you are in the schedule of events, if you double tap
on an event you are interested in, it has a Zoom link to that event, a
description of it and you can set a reminder for that event and even
add it to a schedule of things you want to attend. Like I said it is
one of the most accessible event apps I've come across.

You can also use the website for the event :
event.CrowdCompass.com/nfb20

Re: NVDA Settings

Is it okay to run the portable version from Drop box or does it have to be on a thumb drive?

If the installed version makes changes to the registry, and I know that if you want it to run at bootup, that is done by a registry entry, your method doesn't do this.

It is generally not a good idea when installing a nonportable version of a program, to just copy files.  A lot of the time, programs you place on a computer won't work properly and perhaps not at all.

Hi Marie,

Since I run the same version of NVDA on all my computers whether Windows 7 or 10, what I do is copy the NVDA folder with all its subfolders to Dropbox or a flashdrive from the following path:

C:\Users \ User Name \ AppData \ Roaming \ nvda

I then paste it into the same path of another computer overwrighting all existing NVDA files and folders.  I now have that version set-up the same way as the other.

Others may say not to do it this way, but I have yet to incurr a single problem doing this way for about 4 years now.  Just make sure you're running the same version of NVDA on all computers you do this with.  I've even sent my NVDA folder to a friend on the east coast and he pasted into his computer with no issues.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I already installed NVDA on the new system. Should I uninstall it before performing these instructions?

Also I am not sure what you mean by "run NVDA +n,t.

And do I then install the full version from the portable? I  have never used a portable copy.

In the app, below the Agenda and Sponsors you will find the Exhibitors
button. That will take you to an alphabetical list of the exhibitors.
Was that what you were asking?

I've played around with it so if you have a specific question maybe I
can help. When you first download it, you type in nfb2020 in the
search (keeping in mind it is lower case and all one word) then in the
event ID you type nfb2020 in again. It will ask you to enter the info
you registered for the convention with (I don't remember if you can
look at it without at least entering some info) then it will take you
to your profile screen. You can enter as much or as little as you want
others to see (or none at all). The info for the convention is very
accessible. When you are in the schedule of events, if you double tap
on an event you are interested in, it has a Zoom link to that event, a
description of it and you can set a reminder for that event and even
add it to a schedule of things you want to attend. Like I said it is
one of the most accessible event apps I've come across.

You can also use the website for the event :
event.CrowdCompass.com/nfb20
Event password: nfb2020

Thanks Mike,

I am going to give this a try because it is not my primary screen reader and the install is new and can be uninstalled and re-installed if necessary. But it has taken time to get it set to a tolerable use so I don't want to have to do it all over again. LOL!
