Re: Question About Brothers Printer

Mike B.
 


Ron,
 
If your printer does not have an ethernet connection, or you don't want to connect with an ethernet cable you need an USB 2.0 A / B cable.  The, male A
end, of the cable plugs into the USB port on your computer and the, male B end, plugs into the back of the printer.  The 2 ends are shaped differently
so you'll know which is which.
 

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

Subject: [TechTalk] Question About Brothers Printer

Hi Group,

On another list, I have been discussing my purchase a few days ago of a
Brothers HL-L3210CDW Color Laser Jet Printer. I have been updating
people on this other list about whether or not the printer is accessible
or not. Below is a relevant portion of the post as well as the pertinent
question referred to in the subject line.

...Even though the people at Accessible Products Hotline and Amazon told
me through a variety of questioning on my part that the set up was
totally accessible, this is not the case. The wireless is in fact menu
driven and you need sighted help to enter the router information.

While there are buttons on the top of the printer, most of them are for
navigating the menus. The power button, the initiate print job or OK
button and the cancel button are the only buttons not directly connected
to the menus. The wireless button turns wireless on/off--assuming you
can get the wireless configured through the menus.

In addition, I called Amazon disability to inquire about what kind of
wired connecting cable I would need and they couldn't help me. They
referred me to Brothers tech support. A woman speaking heavily accented
English told me--or at least that's what I thought she told me--that I
needed a USB data cable with USB 2.0 or higher and with a double male
connector--one end into the computer and one end into the printer. This
is not the case. One end does indeed fit into the computer, but the
other similar end won't fit into the printer. I am not sure what kind
of connector you need on the printer side, so I am wondering just what
kind of printer type connection this is. It looked to me like a standard
USB input for a male connector.

Can anyone tell me what kind of cable I would need for the printer side?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Strange issue with creating folders.

Marten Post Uiterweer
 

Jessica,

You coult press ctrl-shift-n to create a new folder in explorer or alt-2
will also work.
An other way:

Go in a folder. When you open a folder, tnothing is selected and you
can press the contextkey and choose new or w to create a new folder or
file.
If you have moved in that folder, then something is selected.
First unselect it with ctrl-space and then contextkey.


Regards, marten

While I doubt this will solve the problem, you might as well try. I would think that even if the ribbon was hidden, pressing alt and tabbing would still move through some things. It does in other programs I have that use ribbons. But try control f1 and see what happens. To toggle back to the current setting, use the same command. Be in File Explorer when you use it.

In File Explorer, under Windows 10 Version 2004, ALT+H,N, is the keyboard shortcut to create a new folder.  ALT+H,W gets you into the Create New Item option, and you'd have to hit F afterward for a new folder.  I don't believe this has changed in years, but I could be wrong.

CTRL+SHIFT+N has also been another "create new folder" shortcut in File Explorer for ages

Admin. avoiding list clutter

Gene
 

A list member today sent a message asking if people use a service but not asking what they want to know about the service. A question such as this one is likely to produce many unnecessary messages, in other words, list clutter.

First, many people may answer saying they use the thing asked about, and ask what the question is. Since usually people do use what is being asked about, the original poster then sends his/her question(s) and then another round of answers is given.

Will people who ask if people use a service or product please include their question(s) regarding what they want to know in the same message?

Gene, owner

Stream Genie

Lighthouse <bernice.j.bird@...>
 

Good evening,

 

This is my first email to this group. I am one of those weird people that wants to turn on my TV and turn it to a station and watch a program. I don’t mind searching for a specific movie on Net Flix, or searching you tube for something, but when I watch TV, I don’t want to have to go searching forever for current live TV.

 

I have bought 3 digital antennas, and none of them get very many stations. I bought a roof antenna just to find it is extremely difficult to mount it on my house. The wire would have to go three quarters of the way around my house.

 

I am looking for information about the Stream Genie. I would appreciate hearing about individual’s experiences with it, or any reliable information that can be provided.

 

I feel extremely strongly about the negative business practices of our local cable company, and don’t want to support a business that charges their long term customers more and more money. Call me strange, but I thought a good practice would be rewarding long term loyal customers, not penalizing them.

 

Thanks for any info about this system.


Re: accessible disk imaging software.

does Narrator come preinstalled with the Macrium reflect recovery disk like it does with Image for Windows or, do I have to install Narrator myself to make the MR recovery disk useable with Narrator?

Macrium reflect's recovery environment is also based on Win PE and narrator works there perfectly.

Restoration of an image is accesible via Narrator when using Image for Windows because Narrator comes on the Image for Windows recovery disk which can be copied to a USB drive.  I haven’t checked the price lately but it cost around forty bucks a couple years back for the ability to use it on five PC’s.

 

One does need one-time help to change the boot sequence on their PC or, one-time assistance to memorize the keystrokes to change the boot menu to boot up off the recovery disk.

 

Macrium Reflect  is an excellant free choice but one will always need sighted help to run the recovery disk.  Not too bad of a deal to get your complete drive back.

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.
