Well, I'm experiencing the same issue with Outlook, and Control M definitely doesn't work for me. So, I'll try F9. Thanks.

Re: differences between chrome and firefox

Gene
 

Browsing is browsing with any browser that supports the Virtual pc cursor and browse mode. It is either identical or almost identical between the two browsers. I expect there is at least one attachment for each browser that notifies you when a download finishes.

It is a very good idea to have both Firefox and Chrome or a Chrome-based browser on the same computer. Since one is Chrome or Chrome-based and Firefox isn't, when you are having a problem with a web site, trying the other browser may have better results and those results may be meaningful.

There are differences in the way the program is designed, Chrome has only one menu, Firefox has many menus, as most programs do.

Chrome works better in terms of speed of loading pages and it may not have a lagging problem Firefox may when you move through some pages. I don't know if this is a problem that amounts to anything, I don't use it much and I've only seen it on one site.

I think the concensus you will see here, if enough people write, is that a lot more people prefer Chrome. But having said that, if you are at all a demanding Internet user, you should have both. There won't be much to learn to use Firefox if you already know how to browse well.

The Pocket, which I believe is no longer being updated, is a great recording device. I just connected the Pocket to a tape player and recorded directly onto the Pocket. I then connected the Pocket to my computer's USB port and transferred the files to my PC. I imagine you could do a similar transfer with the Victor Stream. There are also software packages which could probably allow you to record directly from your computer. Audacity is free of cost and others, such as Gold Wave or Total Recorder, are reasonably priced.

editing group e-mails in thunderbird

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I have a list of e-mail addresses set up under one name in thunderbird so that when I type that name the message I send goes to all of those addresses, but at least one address has changed in that list since I created it. Since the address I need to change is part of a longer list can I just find that address and delete it and reenter it, or since it's part of the longer list do I need to do it a different way?

Thanks, and I hope this explanation is clear.

Troy

Hi Thanks very much for your response. I just found out from a sighted person that Control plus M does indeed "Send and Receive, it just doesn't say so.

I never knew about the F9 possibility before.

Sincerely, Vicky

Re: tape to mp3

I would second this. just about all the machines that I have come across, that do this in house as it were, tend to be of rather poor quality, especially when it comes to the tape deck. if the tapes are all of perfect quality, you can just about get away with it, but in general, such machines are designed to be cheep and cheerful, rather than of decent quality.

There are such machines but I'd be suspicious of the quality of a lot of them. I wonder, for example, how many allow you to use Dolby in the transfer. I'm not saying you can't get a machine that will do this well or reasonably well, but if the situation is similar to that regarding turntables that are used for this, be careful and look for a good machine.

No, not me Terri. Someone named Joseph Hudson had been telling people in the recent past on several lists that they should use Consumer Cellular...

We use H2O on the AT&T towers which seems to work the best with the Blindshell classic phone and they have better customer support than all the other companies with which we've had experience.

Stay safe and Happy Holidays!

Hi Monte, I've tested MP3 and text files. The Blindshell classic uses
it's TTS voices to read any books in text format. It probably plays
OGG, WAV and other files which Android supports as well.

Stay safe,

Laz

It has a few more apps which benefit the blind user such as a color
identifier, object tagging, music player, book reader, as well as a
translator.

Stay safe,

it sounds as though the Shell phone does pretty much what my phone
does and

a certain amount more. I can't listen to radio stations, though I
wouldn't

spend extra money for a phone just for that. I do value the FM
radio my phone makes available and I know the Blind Shell Phone also has one.

I might spend a certain amount extra for that feature.

Yes, the phone definitely has a youtube app as well as the ability
to listen to internet radio stations.

can do this. As I think about it, I suspect they can and that the

If an

assistant is used in The Shell Phone, it should be able to do all
sorts of

things.

I wonder if the phone has a built-in Youtube app, allowing you to
listen to music and other content on Youtube.

Yes, or by contact name if the person is in your contacts.

Hi List,

The Blind Shell Classic is an interesting animal.
It has a combination of features that I like; First, it has keys
you can feel. Smart phone don't, there may be an exception.
Second, you can dictate text messages to the Blind Shell Classic.
So-called "feature" phones do have buttons, but you cannot
dictate text messages.
So, personally, I am living with a second-hand I phone 7 to
which I can dictate text messages, but it has no buttons.
When it comes to entering info, passwords, codes, card
numbers, etc, on a smart phone, I'm a clutz.

I would buy a Blind Shell Classic, but right now, it's just a
bit pricey
given the difference between the value of the Canadian and US
dollars.
Personally I don't care that the Blind Shell Classic does not
have a browser.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Cheers, and live safely,

Monte

Hi Olusegun,

I think that user installed apps is not a feature of the blind
shell classic; the blind shell classic does not have a browser.

Terrilynne, pardon me for being behind the curtains! I'm
thinking you have a smart toy of some kind like many of us in
this space.

For the Breaking News you're receiving from your local radio
station, did you have to install an app on your smart toy?

If YES in the affirmative, you'll need to know whether or not
you can install your own preferred apps on the Blindshell toy
because if you can't, you'd need to weigh your options carefully
with regards to adopting it into your smart toy family. For me,
to receive news from the New York Times as an example, I must
install its app on any of my toys dedicated for such business.

A Push Notification, if enabled on a smart toy, simply alerts
you when there's something cooking with respect to an app that
supports it.
Example,
I have the Robinhood app installed on my toys; I'm monitoring a
few stocks; so, each day as the market closes, the app pushes to
me a notification that lets me know how well the stocks I'm
monitoring did for that particular day.
Some E-mail apps support Push Notification and will work the
same way.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

Downloading Outlook 365 messages?

Hi List, Control plus M does not seem to update my Outlook 365 email inbox any more.

 

I am using a Windows 10 computer with Jaws 2020. 

 

Do any of you have any suggestions?
