Re: talking contactless forehead thermometers

Hi Shelly,

I did call the blind mice mart this morning and had to leave a message, I suspect they may be closed for the holidays.

The thermometer we have also looks like a gun and you press the trigger to take the temperature while the thermometer is 2-4 inches away. It sounds like the one you described.

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.

I've never used Narator, but that would seem to make sense. When my sister got
her Lenovo Narator seemed to be on already, but she's fully sighted so she
didn't need it. Too bad they couldn't help you set it up, it sounds like you're
worried about doing it on your own. I don't blame you, I would be too. Good
luck!!!!

Jarte is a great word processor that is not as powerful as Word but is certainly more robust than Wordpad. There have been some changes with the Jarte landscape, however. First, Jarte is no longer being developed. Along those lines the Jarte Plus program, which used to cost $20.00, is now free. Therefore, if anybody is interested in using Jarte I would advise downloading Jarte Plus from www.jarte.com while it's still available, considering that we don't know how long the Web site will continue to remain operational.

Do you just want to do rather simple work or do you want more complex abilities? I suspect that in general, word processors manufacturers put on Windows machines are free, and maybe open source. Microsoft used to have a starter version of Word for Windows 7 that manufacturers could put on but they haven't had anything of the sort for a long time.

If you tell us what you want to do, you might get better tailored suggestions There are many free word processors to choose from and I wouldn't buy a computer based on what may be included if you can get a better laptop at a cheaper price without one or with a different one than people like. JARTE is a good one. Open Office and Libre Office may be good ones. Others will have to comment on that. You can install all of them yourself. Even if you aren't comfortable installing programs, you may be able to get enough help from the list to allow you to do so.

I have MS Word 2019, or what ever the latest version is today. However,
I hate using it.


I just don't need all those Bells and Whistles that has bloated up MS
Word over the years.


I use a small Word Processor called Jarte.  It is very simple and works
well with my Screen Readers.


If you are interested, you can find it at www.jarte.com


It is Free unless you wanted a slightly more feature filled version
which will cost you $29.

The only thing I see as a negitive is that this Word Processor does not
Save files in MS Words newest format.  Which doesn't matter to me, but
it might to you.

Hi Gene,
I didn't mean to ask for Word Processor, I meant to ask for Processor of the Laptop I was wanting to buy, I will be doing basic editing, using email, surfing the internet, using Zoom, but all of this is pretty basic I think. Smile. I just bought a Lenovo, I hope it is right, as it sounded pretty good to me. I thought $499 sounded pretty good, as I searched and search myself, and had other people searching, and all the Laptops were quite exspensive. That is why I sent a couple messages out to the list, but didn't get any advice is what kind of Laptop to buy.

wouldn't buy a computer based on what may be included if you can get a
better laptop at a cheaper price without one or with a different one than
people like. JARTE is a good one. Open Office and Libre Office may be good
ones. Others will have to comment on that. You can install all of them
yourself. Even if you aren't comfortable installing programs, you may be
able to get enough help from the list to allow you to do so.

Hi Everyone,
I am wanting to buy a Windows Laptop, but I don't know what to look for in a
good Word Processor though, as I've noticed some Laptops have different
processors in them, so I'm not for sure what to look for.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Janet
Peace Be With You.

Hi Janit,
I have a Linovo, and I love it!!!!! It's not a touch screen, but even if it was
I wouldn't use it. It's fast, has good speakers, small, lightweight, and easy to
use!!!! Then again I use my computer for pretty basic stuff, emails, Internet
browsing and such, so I don't want/need a real fancy or high-end laptop.
Congrads on your purchase, I hope you'll be happy with it and don't have too
many (or better yet no) issues and that it lasts you a long time!!!!!
Madison

Hi David and All,
David this is so true what you are saying, and I didn't mean to say a Word
Processor though, but to say a Processor for the Laptop I was wanting to buy. I
don't really need a Word Processor, as I will only be doing some basic editing.
Thank you for this clarification. I don't know as much about computers as I
would like to. So, you just tought me something. I bought a Lenovo - IdeaPad 3
15" Touch Screen Laptop - Intel Core i5-1035G1 - 12GB Memory - 256GB SSD -
Platinum Grey. I won't use the touch screen though, it came with the Laptop.

Janet,
There is a difference between a word processor used for writing and editing
documents as opposed to a processor in a computer which can determine its
overall speed and performance. Which term are you wanting more information
about?

Word Processor Suggestions

Dave
 

I have MS Word 2019, or what ever the latest version is today. However,
I hate using it.


I just don't need all those Bells and Whistles that has bloated up MS
Word over the years.


I use a small Word Processor called Jarte.  It is very simple and works
well with my Screen Readers.


If you are interested, you can find it at www.jarte.com


It is Free unless you wanted a slightly more feature filled version
which will cost you $29.

The only thing I see as a negitive is that this Word Processor does not
Save files in MS Words newest format.  Which doesn't matter to me, but
it might to you.

Jarte is a great word processor that is not as powerful as Word but is certainly
more robust than Wordpad. There have been some changes with the Jarte landscape,
however. First, Jarte is no longer being developed. Along those lines the Jarte
Plus program, which used to cost $20.00, is now free. Therefore, if anybody is
interested in using Jarte I would advise downloading Jarte Plus from
www.jarte.com while it's still available, considering that we don't know how
long the Web site will continue to remain operational.

Do you just want to do rather simple work or do you want more complex abilities?
I suspect that in general, word processors manufacturers put on Windows machines
are free, and maybe open source. Microsoft used to have a starter version of
Word for Windows 7 that manufacturers could put on but they haven't had anything
of the sort for a long time.

If you tell us what you want to do, you might get better tailored suggestions
There are many free word processors to choose from and I wouldn't buy a computer

Are you talking about A word processor like microsoft office? or about the physical processor in the machine like an i5 or i7?


Thanks.
