I will admit that I have seen you mention iRinger before, but I never got around to downloading it because I thought it might be too complicated. Sheesh, was I wrongI was easily able to trim it to 30 seconds and add a fade to it before exporting it to iTunes. You don't even have to install anything, the only thing that is annoying is the UAC coming up every so often (I just hit alt N when I heard it after the first time) and the "click here to close this window" talking about their sponsers that I could just alt tab back and forth to get rid of.

Thanks a bunch sir.

This cannot be easily done with mp3DirectCut since mp3DirectCut cannot
convert between audio formats. However, it can be done with Audacity.
Here are some quick instructions.

1, Download and install the ffmpeg converter here
http://lame3.buanzo.com.ar/ffmpeg-win-2.2.2.exe
which allows Audacity to import/export additional formats.
2. Browse for and open the M4R file in Audacity by pressing Control O.
Note that if the file does not load, you may have to rename the
extension from M4R to M4A, but this will probably not be necessary.
3. Press Space to play the file and use the Left and Right Bracket
keys to mark the beginning and end of the selection respectively. You
can also use the Left/Right Arrow keys to rewind/fast forward
through the file.
4. From the
"File"
menu, select
"Export Selected Audio..."
5. Browse for the folder in which you want to save the file.
6. In the
"Save as type"
filter combo box, select
"M4A (AAC) Files (FFmpeg)"
7. Select the
"Save"
button. Note that you will most likely have to change the extension
of the exported file from M4A to M4R.

I have a ringtone which unfortunately is too long to be a ringtone on
my iPhone. It is the entire theme song from a game and I only need 30
seconds of it ... it is in .m4r format.
I don't do much--if any at all--messing with audio files. So I would
need something that isn't too involved for my little brain to get. lol
I have MP3 direct cut, which I used to convert my hadley assignment
tapes to mp3 successfully, and audacity, which I haven't really used
much at all. I failed at finding a way to use them to convert the
file, I probably missed something somewhere.

I know how to cut up an mp3, it is just the converting of m4r to mp3
and back where I get stuck at.

Any advice would be appreciated immensely, Melissa

Re: disappearing e-mail

If the Inbox is corrupted a new one is created, but the old one should be automatically renamed with a 1 in the file name.  However, the chances are that Outlook Express will still not be able to access it.  If you care about retrieving the messages, you can try using one of the previously mentioned programs.  Otherwise you don't have to do anything else.  Although you might still want to seriously consider trying a different mail client since the possibility exists that this problem may occur again.  Especially when the DBX files grow too large.

Hi Vicki,
Unfortunately, this probably means that the Inbox DBX store file is corrupted.  Outlook Express database files are somewhat fragile and I sometimes forget that this problem is not uncommon.  Outlook Express is flakey enough that I think I will have to start discouraging less advanced list members from using it.  There is probably not much which can be done to retrieve the Inbox DBX file, but there may be a couple of things that you can try to save the messages themselves if you care enough.  You can try a utility called Macallan Outlook Express      Extraction which you can download here from my Dropbox.
This program might be able to extract messages from a corrupted DBX file and save them as individual EML files.  The other option you can try is installing Windows Live Mail and then import your messages from the Outlook Express store.  Supposedly this worked for at least one user, but I have never attempted it myself so I cannot guarantee that it will work for others.  I also have installation files for both the older 2009 version of Windows Live Mail with menus and the newer 2012 version which uses ribbons on my Dropbox.  The download links are below.

If you had bothered to follow this thread, Bob clearly stated that he was looking for a talking medical thermometer, not a weather thermometer. So Bob, check out the HealthSmart DigiScan Talking Forehead/Ear Thermometer which is available on Amazon.com for $23. I have this unit myself, and it is fairly accurate and easy to use. You simply hold the probe against the center of your forehead, press the button on the back and instantly hear your temperature announced in a clear, female voice. Best of all, it runs on two easily replaceable AAA batteries, not cockamamie button cell batteries like other units sold by the blind-products merchants that are not replaceable and that always seem to be dead when you reach for the thermometer to take your temperature. In addition to announcing your body temperature, the HealthSmart DigiScan can also announce the current time and room temperature, which makes it very versatile. The time can be set without sighted help, although it is a bit tricky. Check it out:

Bob, this may be more thermometer than you want. However, I bought a
talking indoor outdoor thermometer from speak to me for slightly more
than $50. The thing which is great about this is that there is no wire
on the outdoor module. It is a small transmitter which runs on two
triple A batteries which you just hang up outside of your house or
apartment. The base is a talking clock as well as the date and the
indoor and outdoor thermometer. The base unit runs on two double A
batteries. Well worth the money and the voice is good.

Well, just use gold wave to edit your ringtone and then use iringer to
convert it and put it in iTunes in the correct place and then sync with
iTunes. It can be done with iringer without going thru iTunes if you
want . Also if you have any useable vision everything from editing to
putting on your phone can be done thru iringer. I use myself gold wave
to edit my ringtone and then use iringer to convert it and put it into
iTunes. See link to iringer below.

This cannot be easily done with mp3DirectCut since mp3DirectCut cannot
convert between audio formats. However, it can be done with Audacity.
Here are some quick instructions.

1, Download and install the ffmpeg converter here
http://lame3.buanzo.com.ar/ffmpeg-win-2.2.2.exe
which allows Audacity to import/export additional formats.
2. Browse for and open the M4R file in Audacity by pressing Control O.
Note that if the file does not load, you may have to rename the
extension from M4R to M4A, but this will probably not be necessary.
3. Press Space to play the file and use the Left and Right Bracket keys
to mark the beginning and end of the selection respectively. You can
also use the Left/Right Arrow keys to rewind/fast forward through the
file.
4. From the
"File"
menu, select
"Export Selected Audio..."
5. Browse for the folder in which you want to save the file.
6. In the
"Save as type"
filter combo box, select
"M4A (AAC) Files (FFmpeg)"
7. Select the
"Save"
button. Note that you will most likely have to change the extension of
the exported file from M4A to M4R.

I have a ringtone which unfortunately is too long to be a ringtone on
my iPhone. It is the entire theme song from a game and I only need 30
seconds of it ... it is in .m4r format.
I don't do much--if any at all--messing with audio files. So I would
need something that isn't too involved for my little brain to get.
lol I have MP3 direct cut, which I used to convert my hadley
assignment tapes to mp3 successfully, and audacity, which I haven't
really used much at all. I failed at finding a way to use them to
convert the file, I probably missed something somewhere.

I know how to cut up an mp3, it is just the converting of m4r to mp3
and back where I get stuck at.

Any advice would be appreciated immensely, Melissa

Important announcement about a Settings screen (technical information inside): Focus problems when toggling background apps is a Microsoft issue

Date sent: Thu, 03 Dec 2015 19:56:57 +0000



Hi current and future Windows 10 users:
If you want, please do forward this to other lists, as the below post affects all screen reader users using Windows 10:

Recently, users discovered that there is a focus bouncing problem when toggling apps to run in the background, and it turns out this is a Microsoft issue. Basically, when you toggle entries in Settings/Privacy/Background Apps, focus moves to Home button, and this is because the code used to tell screen readers that something has changed is somehow propagating to all entries. In other words, contrary to normal behavior, items in the screen isn't behaving correctly when entries are toggled.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Using your favorite screen reader, go to Settings/Privacy/Background Apps.
2. Toggle an entry such as Groove Music.
Expected: Focus stays on the toggled entry.
Actual: Focus moves to Home button.

Technical (mostly of help for resident script writers and developers): Yet another abuse/misuse of UIA: when state change event is fired, all entries presented on that screen receives this event notification, causing focus to move to unexpected places. Attempting a hack with NVDA didn't work (this involved creating an app module and catching state change events). This problem has been submitted to Microsoft with steps to reproduce and technical background. In short, this problem is something Microsoft will need to investigate, as it affects all screen readers (including Narrator).

Thanks.
Cheers,

Which package did you use to enable it?  If you used my package, did you make sure to run the script as administrator?  If so, I'm not sure what causes this problem, but I remember at least one other user reporting a similar problem.

I used to own this Future Aids talking medical thermometer myself, but gave
up on it because one day when I wasn't feeling well and reached for it to
take my temperature, I discovered to my great chagrin that the batteries
were dead. The two AG12 button cell batteries that came with the unit are
not easily replaceable, and even if they were, where can you actually buy
them? This is a very uncommon battery type which is not usually sold in the
chain pharmacies. In the good old days, when Radio Shack had a store in
practically every neighborhood,you could probably buy them there. But, of
course, since it filed for bankruptcy last year, Radio Shack closed most of
its stores, and so it is no longer easy to buy those hard-to-find batteries
like the ones used in the Future Aids thermometer. What good is a medical
thermometer if it doesn't work when you aren't feeling well and need to take
your temperature? That's why I did extensive research for an alternative
and bought the HealthSmart talking Forehead/ear thermometer I mentioned in
my previous message. It runs on two AAA batteries, which are availabel
everywhere, and of course, because most of us have all these other gadgets
that run on them, we usually have them on hand. So if I ever reach for my
HealthSmart thermometer and find that it's dead, I can simply fetch a fresh
pair of AAA batteries from the refridgerator and install them in a flash and
take my temperature. I just love it when blind-products merchants like
Future Aids provide instructions for their products on their web sites, but
conveniently neglect to explain how to replace the batteries. They probably
figure that for ten bucks, you'll just throw out the thermometer when it
stops working due to dead, non-replaceable batteries, and buy a new one from
them. By the time you receive your new talking thermometer,though, you ,
like the batteries could be dead. LOL!

Bob, this may be more thermometer than you want. However, I bought a
talking indoor outdoor thermometer from speak to me for slightly more than
$50. The thing which is great about this is that there is no wire on the
outdoor module. It is a small transmitter which runs on two triple A
batteries which you just hang up outside of your house or apartment. The
base is a talking clock as well as the date and the indoor and outdoor
thermometer. The base unit runs on two double A batteries. Well worth the
money and the voice is good.

Looking for TV channel number info

Donald L. Roberts
 

I'm sorry for the rather vague subject line but just wasn't sure how to verbalize the request.

I am attempting to locate an url which will tell me the available TV channels including the actual channel number and the alias. I am not interested in program listings as I can get those from Newsline and other sources.

When I used the term "alias," that may not technically be the correct term. However, locally for example, station KHSL appears as being on channel 12 when its actual channel number is 39. I am sure this is a very common practice. Remember too, we are talking open air antenna numbers, not cable or satellite numbers.

If anyone can point me to a site which provides this information in a way which is accessible to a screen reader, I would be most grateful. Thanks.

Don Roberts

If you had bothered to follow this thread, Bob clearly stated that he was
looking for a talking medical thermometer, not a weather thermometer. So
Bob, check out the HealthSmart DigiScan Talking Forehead/Ear Thermometer
which is available on Amazon.com for $23. I have this unit myself, and it
is fairly accurate and easy to use. You simply hold the probe against the
center of your forehead, press the button on the back and instantly hear
your temperature announced in a clear, female voice. Best of all, it runs
on two easily replaceable AAA batteries, not cockamamie button cell
batteries like other units sold by the blind-products merchants that are not
replaceable and that always seem to be dead when you reach for the
thermometer to take your temperature. In addition to announcing your body
temperature, the HealthSmart DigiScan can also announce the current time and
room temperature, which makes it very versatile. The time can be set
without sighted help, although it is a bit tricky. Check it out:

Is there something I can set so when I alt-tab between applications or windows Jaws will just say the item I'm on and not say task switching, running applications, 3 of 3, for instance?  Test-driving a Windows 10 machine to see if I may want it installed so will be bringing up other questions I'm sure.
