Re: Changing Browsers

I don't know what you see that you consider clutter. Part of this may be unfamiliarity with the browser you are using. A web page should look about the same whatever browser you are using.

If you are talking about using a search engine like Google, Firefox, Chrome, and Brave all have the feature that if you use the command control k, you are in an edit field. If you type what you are searching for and press enter, the search engine the browser is set to use for such searches will come up with the results. I believe all three use Google by default. If you find one that doesn't, of these gthree or others, if you ask here, people should be able to tell you how to change it.

If y'all hear a strange noise, that is probably just me complaining
about have to leave Internet Explorer. I have 'sort of' tried to look
at other browsers, but the few I have looked at seem so loaded with
things I don't use. The main thing I like about IE is that, on my PC,
it is virtually invisible. Invisibility is what I am looking for. When
I go to a web site, I want to just lookup stuff without having to jump
through hoops before I can look something up.


Sorry to be so long winded, but all I needat this point is a good and
simple browser. Easy, Fast and invisible.


Just a further note, in my sights is the Brave browser, but I really
have not tried any other than my old friend IE.


Any guidance on Easy, fast, invisible and free browsers would be greatly
appreciated.. I do want to enter the 21st century.


Many thanks for your help and understanding.

Re: Dymo Braille labler question

Pat Seed
 

Hi Brian and All,
I never tried to analyze what I do with the dymo tape labeller to make it work. However, I grabbed it, and here is what I do and would suggest.
 
When you are going to get ready to make a label:
 
1. open the receptacle where the tape is, and keep it open.
 
2. Have one hand where the label comes out, and the other hand on the tape inside, preparing to guide it.
 
3. Guide the dymo tape using the hand that is inside the label maker, to the other hand where the tape comes out. Gently and slowly pushing it through works best.
 
4. Push the tape through so that it just touches a finger of the hand outside the label maker.
 
5. Press the letters to make your label.
 
6. Turn the dial of the labeller to the cutting cell, and squeeze the label maker securely with one hand,  while you gently pull out your label with your other hand.
 
I hope that I have explained this so it makes sense and helps.
 
Blessings and All the Very Best,
Pat Seed

Re: Dymo Braille labler question

Yes it does waste labeling tape, but when you're only using it to make short tags for labeling items or labeling appliances, you have to  waste that little bit so you can peel the backing off.  Also if you don't push out the extra tape to give you that little bit to grab on to, you play hell getting your little label / tag out of the gulley the tape comes through .  I can tell you from personal experience that after trying many times getting a piece of labeling tape out of that gulley can be a major pain in the ass!  LOL  LOL

Yes, Twirl the Dial around to the symbol that feels like a solid Square or rectangle.


At that point, press the trigger, and it should cut the Tape.

Use JAWS key z, when you are at the edit field to turn the virtual PC cursor
off.  Then, when you are finished working with the edit field, use the same

allow you to return to the virtual PC cursor when you don't want to if the

Re: Question About Desktop

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Yes, it is important in navigating a computer that one understand the layout. It's the same as navigating in a building or on the street. It is helpful to know how things are layed out so you can have a picture in your brain.

Ann P.


Original message:

It’s a good idea to provide a systeematic way of doing things in such cases.
To illustrate in this case, as was said, the desktop is a list view in
columns. Let's say you want to move through every item on the desktop to
see what is there. When on the desktop, press home to move you to the top
of the list at the left, the very beginning of the list. Down arrow through
all the items you can. Then press home again to move to the top of the
list, right arrow once, then down arrow through all the things in the second
column. Again, use home, then right arrow two times, which will place you
on the third column.
When you get to the last column and are down arrowing, you will either jump
back to things you heard in the previous column at some point, or if the
final column is full, you will stop at the bottom and still be in that
column. But the desktop, if the final column isn't full, automatically
moves you into the column to the left of where you are if you down arrow
past the last item in that column and you aren't at the bottom of the
column, in other words, if part of that column is not yet filled.
the concept of movement following form isn't taught well, if at all, in
training. In other wordss, even though you can't see if a tool bar has
items from left to right or up and down, if you can't move through the items
by up or down arrowing but you can move through them with the left and right
arrows, those aren't just meaningless arbitrary movement options. You move
as the form of what you are moving through is laid out. Knowing this helps
you understand how things are laid out and may help you brealize that if you
can't move one way, try another.
It may also help you understand what you are doing when you look at
something using screen review, keeping in mind that movement follows form.

Hi all,
Shelly, what operating system are you running? It depends on what OS
you're running as to where the downloads folder is. Before I explain
how to find your downloads folder, which is where all programs put
files unless you tell them differently, I want to explain your desktop to
you.
Don't know where you got your training, but whomever it was did a poor
job in this area. Your desktop is a list view, but it is displayed in
columns and rows. Have you ever seen a bulletin board with pictures
and announcements and so on placed in columns and rows on it? There
will be a picture, and below that will be the menu for the kids'
lunches at school, to the right of the picture will be Martha's drawing
of Spot the Dog and so on. That's what your desktop looks like. So,
if you want to see items 8-14, use your right arrow key to move to the
second column of icons. You can always use first letter navigation
too, which is sometimes more efficient.
As for the downloads folder, that depends on the OS. If it's win10,
it's in 'this PC'. If it's Win7, look in 'computer' at:
c:\users\name\downloads\.

Re: GoldWave: how to make mono file stereo

Damien Garwood <damien@...>
 

Hi Fanus,
As I say, it will sound better to your ears. But then try turning it back into mono and listening to the result. My point is, if you try listening to that conversion on a mono device, such as a phone or smartspeaker or whatever...Well. Do the test and see for yourself. If it sounds OK at that point...Well, there's your method.
Also, be aware that ITunes sells a lot of its stuff in a lossy compression format, meaning you lose quality from the original recording. Editing a file and resaving it will lose even more quality.
Cheers,
Damien.

Hi Fanus,
It depends what you mean by making a mono file stereo.
If you mean changing the format to support stereo editing, then you need
to resave the file as a stereo file (file, save as, then click on the
attributes button and select the format from there). This will allow you
to use stereo-based effects like panning, stereo echoes and reverb and
so on.
If you then want to extend that to attempting to give it a stereo sound,
there are several methods you can do to accomplish this but they are all
what I call "fake stereo" (making use of auditory illusions and
trickery), and so I wouldn't recommend it at all.
Cheers,
Damien.

Re: GoldWave: how to make mono file stereo

Hi Fanus,
The channel delay technique you are talking about is an illusionary trick. It may make the file sound stereo to your ears, but then try turning it back into mono and playing it. It'll sound all tinny and horrible, because of the way the channels are mixed.
Cheers,
Damien.
