Curtis Delzer
 

I have completed the audio version of the book. Personal Power, the iOS edition, by Michael Feir. In this edition there are over 850 navigation points, and 25 hours and 50 minutes of listening to great information about how to do hundreds of things with your iOS device.
Included are 3 versions.
(1) for your NLS player, either the unit from NLS or the app for the IOS and Victor Stream. The NLS player will announce the level types, 1, section, 2, subsection, 3, steps and 4, activity. The Stream will just announce level 1 through 4.

I used to be part of blind treasures and the blind attic list; anyone know if these are still around? Those are the only ones I can think of! Heather

Hi,
I guess it depends where you are. BlindAds is suited more to a US market, while I'm on one called Recycle-It which is geared more in the UK.
Cheers,
Damien.

problem with net flicks and jaws

Jeffrey Schwartz
 

As I  mentioned earlier, net flicks stops talking within a  minute, even if I  unload jaws.  I’m wondering if there is a way to download the show  to my hard drive.

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Internet Explorer will no longer be supported in November

Its good that you made the correction. I haven't generally seen the Komando newsletter make a major error of this type. I've seen some oversimplifications that result in somewhat misleading information.

I am of two minds about the piece that you referenced.

First, I am in total agreement that people should not be using Internet Explorer unless there's a good reason for doing so. The browser just isn't going to keep up with today's Web and many Web sites won't interact properly with Internet Explorer, if at all, and users will find that their experience with IE will be degraded, crippled or nonexistent.

Having said that the Komando article has misquoted the original blog post that it links to. IE is not being retired this November. The blog post states:

"Beginning November 30, 2020, the Microsoft Teams web app will no longer support IE 11."

The end of support has to do with Teams and other Microsoft 365 apps. While IE's retirement is inevitable the blog post makes it clear that the browser isn't going away totally, at least not now and certainly not this year. The Komando piece is an example of poor and irresponsible journalism. Again, this doesn't mean that I'm encouraging users to stick with IE until its official retirement. Unless you're being forced to use it in a corporate environment or unless you're using a screen reader version that is over ten years old Firefox or a Chromium-based browser will offer greater compatibility with today's Web sites, better performance and equal screen reader compatibility to IE with a far more accessible experience.

For years, it has been recommended, even by the department of homeland security that Internet Explorer not be used for security reasons. it has very little market share now. Yet many blind people continue to use it, evidently because of fear of change.

So here are the choices;
Keep using Internet Explorer as it becomes increasingly dangerous and will slowly work on fewer and fewer sites, or wait until the last moment and then try other browsers under pressure, or try other browsers now and see that the only thing you had to fear was fear itself and give yourself lots of time to learn, not under pressure, the small amount you will have to learn unless you want to change settings in the browser.

For a lot of users, there will be very little to learn. Browsing is almost completely identical with any browser that supports the Virtual PC Cursor or Browse mode. You will need to learn to work with book marks differently but, unless you want to change settings, that will be almost the only thing you will have to learn. There are one or two other things, such as how to change where files download to if you don't want them to download to the default folder.

If you want to work with settings, you will have more to learn.

Hi. During the 2020 ACB convention the Next Generation affiliate did a presentation on using Google Forms with a screen reader and it seemed quite accessible. I am having difficulty locating a link to the talk but it should be available in the ACB Conference and Convention podcast feed. Open your podcast player of choice and go through the recent episodes of ACB Conference and Convention and you will likely find it.

I don't have netflix, but I know some of these services have little show preview buttons to play.

I installed net flicks and began listening to a show. It stopped playing

unstalled jaws. It began playing again but stopped shortly.

Any help appreciated,
