Accessible Toaster Oven

Merv Keck <blind5sparrow@...>
 

I have seen this discussed on some tech lists before including my own echoing@groups.io list. However, I want to make sure I have the latest information so I am going to ask again. I don’t care if it is Alexa enabled and I don’t need a built in Microwave. I just need a decent accessible Toaster Oven.

And I would rather not pay $325 for the so-called talking blind friendly toaster oven. That seems a little over the top to me.

Thanks in advance.

screen sharing on the mac?

Kimsan
 

Hi,

How does this work? I did it once, but just a few moments ago, unsuccessful.

I would go to the spotlight, type in screen sharing, click the result for screen sharing, type their apple ID, and click connect.

Then it says the person isn’t available.

The other question is if they are trying to access my computer, after they click connect and my apple id, am I suppose to get a ding to notify me I must

navigate to allow, accept or whatever the case may be?

Thank you,

BT headset on Asus laptop

Marie <magpie.mn@...>
 

    Win10 2004 and latest Jaws 2020 on my Asus laptop, with Real tech audio
When I pair my Plantronics Edge headset to the laptop, it works well and will even switch to an I device easily. The problem is when I turn the headset off, I can get no sound from the laptop speakers or the external speakers connected via the 3.5 MM audio jack. I feel pretty sure there is some setting that needs to be changed so this will work without the problem but have not figured it out so far.
If I shut the system down, when it restarts, the sound is back to normal.

Look through the options in the insert v menu. See if there is something about reporting errors or java script errors or something similar. If so, turn it off if its on. You are probably hearing errors reported in the JAVA script used in the messages when they open.

Re: messages in my gmail account do not get deleted

Gene
 

It appears that mail in the trash folder is deleted after thirty days.
https://smallbusiness.chron.com/long-gmail-keep-emails-65391.html
Mail in the spam folder is as well. It appears that, unless you don't want mail in trash for privacy reasons, you don't need to worry about deleting it there.

If you delete mail from your inbox, it goes to trash. But I don't know just what is kept for indefinite periods of time elsewhere by GMail. Evidently, mail in your inbox, if you leave it there, is kept indefinitely. But sent mail and mail you keep in other folders, I'll leave for others to discuss. There is a way to delete large amounts of messages from various folders. I haven't used it and don't know it.

Subject: [TechTalk] messages in my gmail account do not get deleted

Good morning,

The subject more or less tells the story. I delete messages with my HIMS U2. I can delete messages with Thunderbird.

If I open email with either my Blind Shell Classic or my Iphone 6, I am shown that I have 14,000 messages.

I have looked into my Gmail account and don't find a way to delete this high number of messages. Also, I find no way to tell Gmail to empty trash when exiting Email.

I will truly appreciate any ideas you may have as to how I can solve these issues.

Hi Heather and All,

Thank you so much for this information.  So, when I am on a web page I want to create a short cut to, what I do is press the alt key, down arrow about 18 times until I hear the more tools option, arrow right, and down arrow a few more times, until I hear copy short cut, I press enter, and I then tab until I hear create, I then press enter, and this places the web page short cut on my desk top, and I created a favorite folder on the desk top, and I then paste the web page short cut in to the favorites folder.  This is fine.  Can someone please tell me if I or how can I copy all the short cuts to web pages from the favorites I had when I used IE? I checked and I couldn’t see any options of moving or copying those web short cuts from IE. 

 

Thank you all so much.

I still use the favorites folder and use brave browser too. So if you want to keep the favorites in an easy to access folder, not one of those hidden folders woe. So go to the site you want to add say www.nfb.org.

So  hit the alt key and arrow up to more tools and hit inter or arrow right to create short cut, it will be arrow right and arrow down to this option. Hit inter, you can change the title or keep the one it has. Tab to create short cut. It will be placed on the desktop and you can move it to the favorites folder so if you already have favorites from explorer, they will be in the same place. I am running windows10, not sure if windows7 puts the favorite on the desktop, assume it does. I have had machines running classic shell in windows10, classic shell makes look like windows7 and this option always places the favorite on the desktop. I like this option from the importing favorites from explorer which just created favorites I already had and found that just creating a favorite and placing them in the favorites folder, keeps my favorites list clean. So if I need to switch browsers, all my favorites are always there. I do not have to worry that I have favorites saved in fire fox, chrome or even edge or brave. So if you have to redo the web browser, erasing info and starting over, you do not lose favorites! If you are moving to a different machine all you have to do is copy that favorites folder, no importing and exporting.

Hi Heather,

By default, there is not a defined command for activating or deactivating the screen curtain. But you can create one. Go to the NVDA menu with nda-n, press p for preferences and n for Input gestures.

Then search for curtain and you will find the entry under the vision category.

Re: favorites and Brave Browser Help Please.

heather albright
 

If you’re talking about the favorites from IE, they should be in the windows favorites folder. So if you go to your favorites folder, all the favorites should already be there. But the brave favorites or book marks, will not go to that folder even though, brave will go to these links if you click on a favorite and brave is the default browser. So you have to manually create the favorites and place them in the favorites folder if you want to maintain the favorites folder. So if you want the favorites in your folder to be put in brave, it will use IE to get the favorites and they will be placed in the favorites in the browser. But you still have to manually put any knew favorite in the favorites folder. And it will continue to say favorites from Internet explorer. But that got kind of annoying so I decided to just keep the favorites folder not in the browser. These favorites will work with any browser and they do not have to be saved in the browser. It was kind of annoying to switch your browser and you did not have that favorite saved in that browser. So for me, keeping a favorites folder not tied to any browser, was the ticket.

If you want easy access to the favorites folder, you can always create a shortcut to your desktop.

Cheers Heather
