Subject: [TechTalk] Seeking Android List Info

Hi, all.


I'm searching for any blind Android lists out there.


I tried the Google Groups one listed in the list of resources put out at the first of every month.


The subscription address is:

eyes-free+subscribe@googlegroups.com


I tried this address and got back an error message from Google groups
saying the list doesn't allow postings via Email. It also appears to be
a list for programmers and developers. I need something a bit more uh,
basic.


Are there any lists out there like the lists set up for Apple products?


Thank you in advance for the information.


Lisa

Can anyone tell me if there is a Q-Braille email list to subscribe to?  Or does anyone on this list own a Q-Braille?  I am trying to figure out how to read Book Share books with the braille display.

Had to go into bios. I used the Be My Eyes app so the person could see the screen and tell me what keys to press.

Re: Using NVDA and Firefox to Access the Gmail Web Interface: User Reported Issue With Autocomplete Not Working As Expected

An illustration of the value of looking up some things that may have
nothing to do with accessibility. A Google search found this thread,
which is probably a discussion of your problem. You may not find a
useful solution, but you may get ideas to try.

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with asking on lists either.
But I am saying that this gives good information much more quickly
than you might get from lists, if there are others who have this
problem on them.

not the most qualified to assist her. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Have others encountered this problem and found a successful workaround?

Re: Fusion

Hi all,

If Fusion is like Jaws, you will find extensive tutorials and keystroke listings under the help menu in the program window. In Jaws it says Jaws, I imagine that the thing says Fusion.

Hello,

The new edge also works great.
I've also used the AVG and Avast browsers, they work good too, however they
are best used with the antivirus services from those companies.

Use Chrome or Firefox.

Don't worry about MSIE, just make Chrome or FF the default and you'll be

Under windows 10, Narrator is available after the startup disk you create boots up.

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.

Hi All, Thanks to y'all I have gotten to the point where I am wanting to

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

I don't know how often I should clone my PC as it is not a business

Your suggestions and help will be greatly appreciated.
