redeeming and using an Apple e-gift card

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I recently sent an old iPhone back to Apple and they sent me an e-gift card but I can't figure out how to redeem it. There's a link in the e-mail for redeeming it but once I click the list I'm lost. Can anybody tell me how to redeem the card, and then once it's redeemed I know I have to use it on AppleStore.com but how do I do that? I've never done anything like this.

Thanks.

Troy


talking contactless forehead thermometers

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I bought a new infrared contactless forehead thermometer from the blind mice megamall a few months ago, and we used it once since then and it worked but now it doesn't. Has anybody else had trouble with thermometers like this? We always remove the batteries and put them back in when we need to use it, and this morning we tried multiple sets of batteries to make sure the first set wasn't dead and we still can't make it work.

This actually isn't the first time we've had something like this happen either, before I bought the thermometer we have now we had another one that didn't work when we tried to use it after a while of not needing it.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions, I don't know if these thermometers need to be stored a certain way so they don't get messed up or what.

Troy

Re: nylon cane holsters?

Kay Malmquist
 

Does anyone remember the little figure eight type of strap someone used to sell for holding a cane?  you could clip it to your pants or whatever, and then slide the cane through both loops and the weight of the cane would keep it from sliding through all the way and it would stay there.  It was much smaller than a holster would be and I liked the one I had years ago.  You could use any size cane with it and the thing worked really well.  I have know idea who made it though.

Hello everyone,

I’m thinking of translating some useful jaws scripts into Spanish, at least, that is what I would like to do; however, I don’t have any experience either scripting or programming, so I’m on the lookout for information about how to translate and test the scripts  post translation process.

So, I would really appreciate if someone can provide more information or indicate a website I which I can find further information.

Re: nylon cane holsters?

Hi all,

Gene, a cane holster is used when one isn't using one's cane, e.g. when riding in a car, when walking with a sighted guide, when sitting and waiting for a ride, when carrying stuff into your house that requires two hands.

Because the holster has a strap that is buckled around the waist, if you stow your cane in the holster, you won't drop it or leave it somewhere. It's a convenience.

I've looked on Amazon, but couldn't find them, try The Braille Super Store.

I don't have a cane holster but there are times when I wish I did. For example, I've gone to parties (remember those?) and someone will want me to dance. When I'm ready for a drink or whatever, I would rather have my cane to find my way. People tend to forget I'm blind and drift away so I need to have my cane, but I'm certainly not going to dance with it extended or hold it folded in one hand.
I will have a cane holster soon because it'll make my life a little easier when I can again go to rock shows, parties, whatever. 🤞

I've never heard of a cane holster. Why are they used? If it’s a folding cane, the elastic band at the top of the cane can be looped around it to keep it folded. I assume that is what is being discussed, something you keep a folding cane in but why?

Hi, my family and I just opened our christmas gifts and I recieved a maxi
aid white cane and a leather cane holster.

I have had a similar leather cane holster from maxi aides in the past and it
ended up rotting on me (we live in a hot and humid climate).

I also used a nylon cane holster after that which lasted me about 13 years.
this one is tearing apart and I am now on the hunt for a new nylon cane
holster/bag.

My wife's mom said that maxi aides only carried the one leahter holster and
no nylon holsters and my wife did a google search and the first thing that
popped up when she typed "mylon mobility cane holster" said it was "denim".
No other results came up in the google search results.

Am I going to have to disassemble a foldable camp chair with a nylon seat
and back and make my own now?

Just wondering on your experiences finding the items for your mobility and
carrying needs.


Thanks

Re: nylon cane holsters?

I either fold it and put it on the ground or depending, I leave it unfolded and slide it under a table or put it up against something. I don't fold it unless I need to to make the elastic last longer.

Its interesting that there are such things but I suspect it may slowly contribbute to wearing out the cane.

I have a cane holster to keep the folding cane in when I am not using it.
i.e. When you are sitting in a restaurant, on an airplane, or anywhere you
are sitting when you are not using your cane. Otherwise, you would have to
hold on to it all the time, or lay it on the ground or in your lap.

Also, if I have a sighted guide for some of the time, I can holster the cane
and have my hand free. Very handy.

Subject: [TechTalk] nylon cane holsters?

 

Hi, my family and I just opened  our christmas gifts and I recieved a maxi aid white cane and a leather cane holster.

 

I have had a similar leather cane holster from maxi aides in the past and it ended up rotting on me (we live in a hot and humid climate).

 

I also used a nylon cane holster after that which lasted me about 13 years.  this one is tearing apart and  I am now on the hunt for a new nylon cane holster/bag.

 

My wife's mom said that maxi aides only carried the one leahter holster and no nylon holsters and my wife did a google search and the first thing that popped up when she typed "mylon mobility cane holster" said it was "denim".  No other results came up in the google search results.

 

Am I going to have to disassemble a foldable camp chair with  a nylon seat and back and make my own now?

 

Just wondering on your experiences finding the items for your mobility and carrying needs.

 

 

Thanks

Hi,
I don't imagine the eloquence I bought to use on my android phone would work with NVDA on my PC?

Hi Melissa,
 
this version of Eloquence that Geoff Eden is talking about works great, probably every bit as good as the Eloquence with Jaws and is what I was going to send you.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I don’t have the links right now, but that is not what I’m talking about. I mentioned that I am not impressed with vocalizer… It takes too long to get around and as I said it is not as responsive as the previous eloquence add-on that was the illegal one. I do not mind paying, but I am not going to pay for something that doesn’t help my productivity.

I have found that eloquence, not just the voice, is more responsive and easier to use. I wasn’t impressed with vocalizer… It sounded the same… But did not work the same. I read that there is a legal version of the ad on, but I am unable to put the other parts together or whatever it is called. Right now, just using jaws.

Hi list,

Over the years, and especially since I started using a screenreader in 2011,  I hear many people talking about the features of Eloquence which they like.  I think onne of the main ones is clarity of speech at higher verbosity rates.

I mostly use nvda with the Zara one core voice.  Once in a while I’ll load the jaws demo  when a web page  is not working well.

Is the default jaws voice Eloquence?

Does nvda with eloquence sound the same as jaws with eloquence?

Personally, I don’t mind nvda with one core Zara.

But,  I usually have the verbosity rate  just a little faster than normal human speech.  I lose too much info if I try listening  at a fast rate.

Thanks for your feedback.

Monte

I agree that a soft nylon cane holster would be very nice, but I have never seen one. I have the denim one and also a leather one, but the leather one is very stiff and bulky . The denim one is smaller and less bulky.
