Voice Assist is comparable to iOS's VoiceOver.

LOL It's not just Androidville, it's Smart Phone land. She's in for a treat, that's for sure.


I'm seriously thinking of picking one up just to try it out. I'd love
to be able to just copy/paste things onto the phone using an SD card.

How much can one do with just the voice assist? Is this designed to be
used like SIRI or does it read more information?

Okay, so I'll ask this question. . . How much does it talk with just the Voice Assist?  I know people who get the iPhone thinking SIRIUS will read and do everything for them and it just doesn't work that way.  Can I use the Voice Assist to do other things besides texting and calling?  What about Emails and surfing the net?  I know you said you don't do these things, but is their voice feedback when trying to do them?

My sighted mom who knows nothing about smart phones is getting a Samsung

Well, I like to see that my message made it to a list, so I like to be able to see it. Somebody gave a workaround a long time ago, but I don't understand it, and it makes it sound like I would not only get my messages, but several copies of the rest of the messages. Pam.

That check box is checked by default in Groups.io. I wanted to make clear
that GMail doesn't properly let you receive your own messages from other
groups. That's annoying but since I only use Groups.io groups, it doesn't
matter. Even if I used other groups, messages almost always get to them so
that probablyy wouldn't stop me from using GMail.

This is exactly why I ditched Charter and went to Fastmail for all my email
groups, . It seems that Charter will throttle down your email if you
receive / send too much email, but I could never get Charter / Spectrum to
admit to this and someone else on this list posted something to the effect
this would happen after a certain number of emails per month. Well whatever
the problem with Charter is, I have absolutely zero problems with Fastmail.
Another problem I had with Charter was boucing email with Groups.io which is
something I have zero problems using Fastmail.

Encryption Software with JAWS

Jerry Berrier
 

I am seeking commercial encryption software for Windows that is compatible with JAWS. I’ve already been told there is no such thing, but I want to get a second opinion before I give up.

Right now we are using Trend Micro. It requires a login prior to Windows loading, so JAWS is not available and the user must log in “blind”.

Any suggestions?

Also, we tried encrypting a drive with Bitlocker and JAWS would not accept a password.  NVDA worked, but JAWS would not.  I cannot explain that one.

Sometimes the big companies the spam boxes do not sing over another reason why I would suggest that, is because on mine whenever I first got my cable box, I had a box say I could check that would move all suspected messages that might be spam to my inbox I wouldn't even have to worry about checking my spam box. Which is what I've done with this current account.

Well, maybe it would with this one I have now; I haven't been able to test that. But with my older one, the speakers were along the front. There was a long metal thing with holes in it. Pam.

Closing the lid would also muffle the speakers.

I offer my two cents. The laptop was designed from conception to completion to shed heat with its lid open. I don't believe the designers ever envisaged use with the lid closed.

The fact that it works, apparently, for some computers, is probably brand specific, or good luck.

As I'm sure you have observed, whenever the computer gets warm the fan kicks in and brings the processor back to a temperature range within which the processor works most efficiently. There are a number of utilities out there that will take the temperature of several areas on your motherboard if you're interested. One of the design features built into your computer and its processor is that the speed of processing is reduced as temperature goes up, as an attempt to keep that heat under control. The reduced load is also part of overall battery and power management, and the balances designed for performance and long life

It's also my contention that the heat buildup with the lid closed will eventually damage the display. I have, with my six-year-old Dell laptop, reduce the heat substantially by installing a 500 GB SSD for a cost of about $80. I too would find it convenient to run it with the lid closed. However, running temperature software, I see that the temperature goes up fairly quickly and I hear the fan working harder than normal. Of course, you can tell the computer how to behave when it's closed in the Control Panel under power settings.

I'm not sure if I want to risk damaging the display, even though I don't use it. It just doesn't feel right.

You might consider some kind of compromise by putting some cardboard or something in between the lid and the body that would not totally compromise air circulation, but it's your gamble. Of course, I appreciate how much more convenient it would be to run a closed computer.

Hi all,

I use a USB keyboard with my laptop and somebody who also uses a USB
keyboard told me the other day that they keep the lid closed even when
they're using it. I just wonder if that's advisable though because I
remember once I let my mom use my laptop, and she just closed the lid
without shutting it down first and when I found out and went back
several hours later the whole machine was so hot that I could barely
touch it.

That was several years ago now, but between that and leaving a desktop
computer on for a few days in a row many years ago and the motherboard
ended up burning up I don't want to take any chances, but if there is
some way that I can keep my laptop lid closed when I'm using it and the
heat won't damage it I might do that.

Oh, I don't run my laptop 24/7 but it is on all day long most days.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this matter.

Troy

How do u clone a laptop's hard drive?

Nancy Hill
 

Hi All, Thanks to y'all I have gotten to the point where I am wanting to get a copy/clone of my laptop's hard drive so I will be able to restore it with most of the tweaks I like to have on my machine should the need ever arise.


Is there a place to get instructions on how to clone a hard drive?


I am running win10 and one of the latest jaws.  My laptop has a 1TB SSD and I have 2 1 TB WD external My Passports ready to receive the clone/copy.


I don't know how often I should clone my PC as it is not a business machine...just my personal device.


Your suggestions and help will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in Advance!

Nancy

Yes, it is the phone that seems to be the problem. What I'd really like is
for several people to try it on their phones and then go in to help and
alert the next door team that there is a problem using the phone.

Re: Orbert reader 20

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Suggest you may want to join the Orbit reader group. I believe it's orbitreader+subscribe@groups.io

Did you plug it in? Did you hold in the power button for about three seconds?

BTW, you have an orbit, not an Orbert.
