I’d like to thank everyone for the great contribution you make to this group. Although I dindn’t email you before, I have been reading your messages and learning a lot from you guys.

I hope to keep learning and contribute with what I know as well.

Thanks!

Monte Single
 

Greetings and Salutations Fernando,

 

My name is Monte Single and I live in the original toontown, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Do you do all your performances and practices on an acoustic piano or do you use electroni keyboards sometimes?  

Mostly I use a win10 computer with nvda.

This  is a very helpfu list with a fair amount of traffic.

Sometimes, I contribute to a subject line, and sometimes I just use the delete key when I know a message  is not of interest.

 

 

Cheers,

 

Monte

Re: Really! gonna buy a printer, huh?

Monte Single
 

Hi Howard,

First thing, do not by another inkjet printer. If you have money to throw away, than an inkjet may be right for you.
Spend the extra hundred bucks and get a laser. You won't have to throw it away, Yes, the toner cartridge will cost more but the price per page will be way less than an inkjet.
Again, it will be cheaper if black and white will do instead of color.
Why does it have to be h p?
A lot of people use Brother or Canon and are happy with the product.

Subject: [TechTalk] Really! gonna buy a printer, huh?

Hi All,

Well, I'm gonna go ahead and byte the bullet. I've been told. Wondering again, if someone will recommend an all-in-one printer. I have had and thrown out four HP ink-jet printers and would really like to buy one that will last awhile. But, it'll probably be another HP. I'd like a "blind-friendly" one that has real buttons and not a touch screen. I'll probably order it from Amazon tomorrow. And then I'm gonna ask, anyone who will read my messages, how to extend its life.

Thank you again to anybody with suggestions.

Howard

Re: Staticky, Hissing Sound from my Braille Note Touch Plus

Abbie Taylor
 

I've also noticed static on my BrailleNote Touch Plus with certain applications such as Tune-In and Sero. However, when I connect a Bluetooth speaker or headphones, the sound is much better. I wonder if you could do the same, then connect your Bluetooth speaker to a mixer. Good luck.

Resolved/was RE: [TechTalk] NVDA key not working on laptops

Subject: [TechTalk] NVDA key not working on laptops

Hello group,

I have installed the most recent NVDA on two laptops running Win 10. I
cannot get the NVDA menu to come up when I hit Caps Lock N. This is the
first time I've encountered this issue. There is a function key on one
laptop, a Dell Latitude. I don't know if this function key is creating this
problem, but my older laptop does not have a function key but has the same
problem.
Is there another way to get into the NVDA menu using a laptop keyboard?

Thanks,
Norma


Re: NVDA key not working on laptops

Gene
 

Does the NVDA key generally not work? when you use it for other things, what happens? As for getting into the menu you can in the system tray. If you need instructions, let us know.

I'll briefly say that opening the system tray, Windows key b, then using first letter navigation to get to NVDA, then pressing the context menu key will open the menu but it is important to know if this is a sign of a much wider problem.
