Re: Samsung Galaxy A10e usability for totally blind

Carolyn Arnold
 

On an iPhone, there are choices that I use - like raise to
wake, shake to undo, and touch to wake; all of these, I
turned off. Then, I went to Accessibility, VoiceOver and
Audio and turned off or on, can not remember, but the
feature that does chatter and clicks while on a
conversation. For me, this is very satisfactory.

I have a great advantage with my hearing aids that any time
I'm in the room with others, I just tell Siri to turn on
Bluetooth and can do anything on my phone, and no one hears
anything. Then, I just tell her to turn Bluetooth off. Now,
I need my headset when talking to someone and performing
other tasks, so that I can leave my phone in my pocket. I
would take it for granted that anyone could have similar
choices with an Android phone.

Right on! With Google Assistant, she's constantly listening
in for her WAKE UP WORDS to be uttered. Older toys in
Androidville DO NOT HAVE a button to push; newer ones are
beginning to have them, but, in the case of Samsung, pushing
the said button triggers Bixby, a direct competitor to
Google Assistant. On newer Nokia toys though, the button
does trigger on Google Assistant if a user DOES NOT WISH to
invoke the WAKE UP words.
The Assistant button is separate from the Power button. On
Samsung toys, the Power button can be configured to HANG UP
a call. The Volume Up button can also be configured to
ANSWER A CALL thus obviating the need to keep searching for
an Answer button when a call punches through. Like the
iPhone, the Power button is a loan ranger on the right side
of a Samsung toy; on the left side are three buttons on
newer phones: Volume Up, Volume Down, and the Bixby buttons
in that order. Someone like me wishes that Samsung will
QUIT BEING A COPYCAT and just PUT ALL THE BUTTONS on one
side for easy reach especially when the toy is in a
protective case.

Also on newer toys, Samsung has the 3.5-inch jack to the
left of the charging port. This is awkward in my view. For
a giddy child like me who carries these toys in my pocket
daily, access to the 3.5-inch jack for use with a headset
becomes a painful inconvenience. I compensate for this by
using bluetooth headsets that support noise cancelling with
somewhere between 30-60 hours of talk time.

I know you said your jaws was installed by the state, but is it registered to you? If so you should be able to call freedom scientific and arrange to get your authorization code. Unfortunately there is no way to transfer it. You could look under the jaws activation under help, but it will likely only display the first 7 characters of your code.

If the Android platform throws you a smile, and you'd like to return the
favour, you won't be disappointed with the S10E! It is a smaller version of
any of the S10 incarnations and, yes, there are quite a number of S10's out
there. The S10 is yesterday's wine by today's standards in Samsung land;
nonetheless, it still holds its place amongst the top similarly situated
Android toys, and the wine tastes even better pricewise!

If you currently have an iPhone, please note that there will be A LEARNING
CURVE as you get used to Android way of doing business; in that wise, you
may need more than AN OUNCE OF PATIENCE to get up and running.
Customisability is what makes Android shine in my view; I liken it to the
Windows OS! I can practiclly THROW ANYTHING I CHOOSE at My Shiny Android
toys and we don't have to skid off the running pad. For example, you can
have as many screen readers as you wish and switch amongst them; you can
also have as many TTS engines as you wish and change them as often as you so
desire. The S10E comes with the Voice Assistant; if this works for you,
voilá, no need to go tinkering with another. The Voice Assistant does have
some iOS-like gestures; this could make your entry into Androidville
somewhat less challenging!

Something worth noting: If Eloquence is your favorite and preferred TTS,
that's gone the way of THE DODO BIRD in Androidville; CodeFactory pulled it
and tossed it to the wind. Why? Well, it was almost selling for $19.99;
hmm, we refused to pay that much for a TTS especially when cheaper
alternatives cost much less--say for example, $3.99! Similarly, the KNFB
Reader FAILED IN ANDROID LAND 'cause we won't pay $100 for it. When we got
it, thanks to a Google subsidy, we paid $20! It HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED in
ages, but we don't care or worry too much because there are tons of other
apps that have since filled in the missing link; so, we don't miss the KNFB
Reader in Androidville. Back to Eloquence for a moment: It is a 32Bit TTS
engine; Google's requiring that apps be 64Bit compliant, CodeFactory DOES
NOT WISH to recompile Eloquence for this purpose in Androidville, and so,
like Window-Eyes, Eloquence is dead in Androidville! That said, you can
still GAIN ACCESS to its .APK if you had purchased it before its demise.

Anyhow, if the S10E FITS SNUGLY in your beautiful hands, take it home, give
it some TLC and, any number of Androideans in this space will help you get
up and running with it. Good luck with the decision process, save one for
me under the Thanksgiving or Christmas tree and, when we can fly again, I'll
Santa down to come grab it! All the best.

Try holding the FN key and pressing escape. If this doesn't work, try
holding the fn key and pressing the left shift key. If either of these work
you might have to get sighted assistance and change it through the bios.

That's likely because you have to have the fn keys not function when the fn

this qquestion may give us help in determining if that is the problem. Does
alt f4 work properly to close programs? I'm not sure what other function

Re: How do u clone a laptop's hard drive?

Geoff Eden
 

Good evening Nancy, the easiest way to do this to secure all of the personal
settings you have for your computer is to create an image of your hard drive
on another drive, which will give you the capability of bringing your
machine back to the moment you created the image.

To begin with, determine what you really need to keep for a restoration. If
you have copies of music, emails, or text that you have already put away,
then you can remove them from your drive before starting in order to keep
the image within manageable limits. This is only necessary if space is an
issue.

When you've accomplished your housecleaning, check to see how much space is
being used. Then look at your external drives to determine where you have
sufficient space to store your image.

To begin, tap your Windows key and type in the word "backup". This will
open up your restore utility, tab to "backup and restore windows 7" and
select by pressing enter. Press the tab several times until you see
create an image of this computer. Press the enter key to select this item,
and after a short time, the next tab will show you an option of which drive
you may select. This only occurs if you have other drives plugged in at the
moment.

Finally, launch the process, and give yourself a few hours to do something
else. You can use the computer while this is happening, but I suggest it may
be risky. I do mine overnight.

The computer will inform you when it's finished, and offer you the
opportunity to create a startup disk. You must select this option and be
ready with a blank CD, DVD, or memory stick to record this special boot
material. It is altogether likely, that if your computer has a CD/DVD drive,
your BIOS has been set to see it first in the boot sequence. If your
computer has no media drive, that it is altogether likely that your BIOS
will see a device such as a memory stick or a remote CD drive as first in
the boot sequence.

Now, when it comes time to restore from that image, start your computer with
the CD – memory stick ready to go. Give your system a minute or two to sort
itself out, which it will do without speech. Generally, hitting the enter
key a couple of times will launch the restore. If not you may need someone
to take a peek at the screen.

Just for your information, there is a circulation of Windows PE that can
come up talking and will give you control of the image restoration. Probably
far more complexity than that for which you are prepared.

I hope this is helpful, and that if anyone sees I've missed something,
please jump in.

Geoff

Re: A surprising difference between desk top and laptop command

Some brands will allow you to change them by holding the FN key and pressing escape. I have a dell laptop as well as an HP. With the dell you toggle the behaviour of the function keys with fn escape, and with the HP you toggle them with the fn key and the left shift key. I believe others have a utility built in that allows you to change them, but I’ve never experienced this personally. If the suggestions above don’t work you may need sighted assistance to go in to the bios and change them. Regardless, it can be changed. I can’t imagine having to hold the FN key every time I implemented a command that required the use of a function key. If the lord had wanted this to be so he would have given us a third hand.

Like others have stated Lenovo has the habit of setting the media function keys to the default but with some visual assistance you can set the function keys to act like the ones on your desktop if that is the rout you want to go. For now do the FN plus JAWSKey plus F4 to unload JAWS. FN is the key usually on the bottom left in between the control key and the windows key. Not sure if Lenovo has an application to turn the media function keys off but one method is to go into the bios of the machine to turn them off.

Hi all,

When the siriusXM app is opened for the first time after being downloaded it asks for an e-mail and password. I just logged onto siriusXM.com and changed my password since I didn't remember what it was, I know the e-mail address is correct, but when we put that info into my mom's phone in the xm app it still didn't take it. Is there another password than the one to log in that I'm forgetting about?

It's possible that my mom is typing either the e-mail address or the password wrong as I give it to her since this is a new phone, my next step will be to turn voiceover on and try it myself, but I wanted to ask here first if we might just be entering the wrong info.

Thanks.

Like others have stated Lenovo has the habit of setting the media function keys to the default but with some visual assistance you can set the function keys to act like the ones on your desktop if that is the rout you want to go. For now do the FN plus JAWSKey plus F4 to unload JAWS. FN is the key usually on the bottom left in between the control key and the windows key. Not sure if Lenovo has an application to turn the media function keys off but one method is to go into the bios of the machine to turn them off.

Subject: [TechTalk] A surprising difference between desk top and laptop command

 

Hi List, I recently bought a Lenovo Windows 10 laptop and loaded Jaws 2020 on it. 

 

I was surprised to find that when I press Insert plus F4 on its keyboard, it goes to a print command. However, when I issue that command from an attached desk top keyboard it does unload Jaws as it should.

 

Have any of you experienced this?

 

Sincerely, Vicky V
