sync Chromium Edge

Alan Robbins <arobbins1057@...>
 

Question,

 

I installed MS Edge on my computer and was able to sign in with my user name and password. I also installed it on my iPhone. When asked to sign in to sync across all devices, I used the same user name and password as I di on the PC and it says incorrect user name and/or password. I have rechecked on the PC by signing out and in  again with no problem. Suggestions as to what is happening here?

 

Thanks,

Alan


Re: Ink Jet vs Laser Color Printing

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Mike,

         Most general purpose color laser printers do a fine job with photographs if all you're looking for is "good snapshot quality."  Photo printing like photographers do it requires special printers regardless of the technology of the printer, and special paper, too.  For most of us a laser printed image is just fine for day to day use.

         Laser printers are more expensive up front, and toner cartridges are very expensive, but the per page cost is less, and a toner cartridge lasts "forever," relatively speaking, compared to an ink tank, even an extra capacity ink tank.

         Also, comparisons of image printing between two inkjet printers, two laser printers, or a mix of the two technologies is not really possible except in the abstract.  It's something you really have to see to know exactly how well a given printer does.  You can get stats on dots per inch and the like, but that tells you next to nothing about what the final product actually will look like.  This is a case where sighted help, using a picture of your choosing for printing but that's consistent across all devices, will get you the most information about how the image quality seems including color rendering, sharpness, etc.

Hello, I suggest you call hp tec support line, they can help you with your search. I do not know any other places that have an actual accessibility line for their products it seems that hp and Samsung are the only ones. Here is hp line hp accessibility number:18776567058. I read online that hp is part of Samsung’s accessibility with printers, they actually tell you to call HP for accessible printer support. Cheers Heather

Hi All,

 

Our printer crapped out on us and we're now shopping for a replacement and we're considering a laser over the ink jet models.

 

Can anyone provide us a comparison of color printing between the ink jet and laser models as far as how one looks verses the other?  What I mean is the sharpness of color if printing a picture or something like that.  Printing documents should come just fine and since we don't print pictures that often, but if we do we would like it to look half way decent when we do.

 

All input is greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.


Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

Re: best MVNO plans?

Hi,

Another  question I have is with replacing my outdated Iphone 6. I waited for the 5g capable 12 pro, which was supposed to have a much better processor. But that has turned out to be a mistake, with reports showing that the new a14 is marginally faster than the 13. When replacing my phone, I want to order directly through apple, and pay the phone directly. I need an unlocked phone, as I travel internationally, and need to be able to use local sim cards. Is purchasing from apple, as opposed to the carrier a good stratigy?

Re: accessible disk imaging software.

Smiling?
 

Actually no, Image for Windows truly hasn’t changed much at all. It has updated several times, but really not changed. So that podcast that you speak of will give you a decent idea of what to do with even todays versions.

 

Using Windows10 PE with speech though, is different and no, I unfortunately do  not know of any podcasts available. Hopefully others do, and share the various links.

 

I do believe that Windows will burn .ISO images to disc though (granted you actually do have whichever type drive to burn the disc). Yes it will, and the link’s below.

Are there any podcasts that demonstrate how to create this magical talking PE disk, plus a demonstration of how to use it to restore a backup image from an external hard drive without sighted help of any kind? The owner/moderator of the defunct JAWS Users email list, David Ferrin, who has apparently vanished into the ether, created a podcast on his Help page that demonstrated how to use Image for Windows with a series of CD's to restore a backup image, but this was years ago before he shut down the list and help site, and Image for Windows is apparently a much different program now.

Here's the bottom line.  There is no inmaging program that is completely accessible.  Macrium Reflect is accessible only for creating the backup image on an external hard drive.  But sighted assistance is needed to restore this image because there is no speech available during the restoration procedure.  This is true of all imaging programs; the backup procedure may be accessible, but sighted help is almost certainly needed to restore the saved image.

Problem with Zoom on my iPhone

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

Lately on my iPhone XR with latest IOS 13 update, it seems that every time I try to use the meeting tab in Zoom after a previous session, it only says, in progress. I tried refreshing it before, but it didn't change this.' However, when I delete and download it again it works. Then after another session, it does the same and I need to redownload again. How do I fix this? I am not ready to update to IOS 14, because, as far as I know, there are serious bugs that make some precious apps unusable.

Thanks,

Steve,

           Once you change the view for a specific folder, it should be permanent.  If it's "automagically" setting back, then something's wrong.  The first thing I'd do is using these instructions:

Then see if the problem stops.  If not, then move on to Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Re: Wrestling with Windows 10 Files and Folders

Your assumptions are all correct. I change the sort order on certain folders sometimes, but the sort order is not what's vexing me. Rather, it's the group order, which, no matter how many times I set it to None, changes to Date every other once-in-a-while. I thought once I change it, it would stay changed. Not so.

My question is are you trying to have a "sorted by date, most recent to oldest (or vice versa), no grouping by time period" sort in every folder on your system, or only a select number.  I'd presume the latter, but one never knows.  It's easy to set a given view for every folder on the system.  If you're trying to go for some, but not all, then you have to handle the "some" individually, although all their subfolders can be done in one fell swoop if desired.

Wrestling with Windows 10 Files and Folders

Steve Matzura
 

A new and definitely unwanted behavior has reared its ugly head on one of my Windows 10 systems. When I open a particular folder, while it's already set to show entries sorted by last modified date, it has now begun grouping items by such crazy things as "Thi week," "Last week," "A long time ago," etc. I keep changing this behavior back to None, but Windows keeps changing it back to the new and unwanted behavior. It used to be that one could permanently fix this in the old Windows Explorer, but not so with File Explorer. Either that, or I don't know how to do it, which is more likely the case. LOL. So, once I change the grouping back to None, what do I have to do to ensure it stays that way?


TIA

Re: jaws 2021

I've heard comments occasionally from others still using Eudora. I can't tell from this forum just how well it works, but the forum does indeicate that people still use it in Windows 10. How well screen-readers support it currently is something I don't know.
https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/Windows/en-US/d84a9888-01e3-4df6-9023-fe8baa58cc6f/is-eudora-7-compatible-with-windows-10?forum=Offtopic

If an e-mail program still runs well in Windows,, even if it is quite old, and if a screen-reader still supports it, it should work well. I use NVDA and Windows Live mail still works well. As far as how it works with JAWS, I haven't used JAWS for years and I don't know if scripts are still included with current versions. I suspect the program still works well with JAWS however, since I see no reason that the scripts should have been removed. But those using JAWS would have to comment on that.

I'm not just commenting on this to engage in discussion. I think people should have the widest choice of programs available so they can use the one they prefer.
