new Lenovo laptop

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

Hi

Well I got and set up my new Lenovo laptop yesterday. It’s this one…

 

https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-IdeaPad-Processor-Graphics-81W0003QUS/dp/B0862269YP/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=lenovo+laptop+ryzen+5&qid=1610041184&sr=8-3

 

And I have to say it works great! The keys are about as big as desktop keyboard keys and they have a nice feel to them and press down nice so I know I am typing stuff. But more importantly is the fast 256gb ssd drive! Pair that with the ryzen5-3500U 3.7ghz processor, 8gigs ddr4 ram, and wow this thing is really really fast! So that being said, I highly recommend this Lenovo laptop!

And that being said, I am now selling my old hp laptop if anyone is interested. Aside from a few sticking keys which could be fixed with a cleaning or plugging in a USB keyboard, the old hp laptop works fine. It has an AMD a6 processor, 2.4ghz, 500gig hard drive, normal, not sdd, 4gigs ram. Latest windows10. So if anyone is interested I would like to sell my old laptop for $120 including shipping. I accept paypal for payments. And if interested just send me an email off list at:

Joshknnd1982@.... In case the email address does not go through, that is:

J, o, s, h, k, n, n, d, 1, 9, 8, 2, at sign, g, m, a, I, l, dot, c, o, m.

Hi Loy,
 
Open the Run dialogue with, Windows key + R, and type in what's below,
 
shell:appsfolder
 
and press enter.  Now use first letter navigation to find it and when you find the app you want open the context menu and up arrow to create shortcut, press enter and follow the prompts.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Re: which processor should i choose for my new laptop?

Juan Gonzalez <jgonzalezh614@...>
 

Both Intel’s and AMD’s latest processors are great with screen readers, the only time you will see any difference is if you are doing heavy gaming or video/photo editing or any processor  heavy stuff.

You won’t go wrong with either. Its more of your choice of laptop you want. For me I look at the processing speed and the amount of cores. This computer I have has 6 cores divided into 12 that run at 2.6 ghz.

blind android users podcast episode number 4 is now ready for you to listen.

 

hi all.
in this jam packed episode of the blind android users podcast, we
continue the "Android setup" process we started last time.
this episode has chapter markers so if you listen to a player
supporting chapter markers you can listen to the section you want
first.
Warren continued showing you how to setup your android phone from
where he left off.

We next had a chat with a special guest, Professor Paul Ruvolo, the
developer of the "Clew" app.
"Clew aims to change our world when it comes to indoor navigation.
For the time being, however, "Clew" is only available for the iPhone
at the following URL:
https://apps.apple.com/us/app/clew/id1268077870
From the sounds of it, however, seems like Professor Ruvolo is going
to look into bringing it to Android shortly and I can't wait!
We then moved on to the "my android journey" segment of the podcast,
and our friend, Tony Sohl, takes us on a journey of his android.

Re: Virtual desktop infrastructure

Michael Mote
 

Hi Pablo. JAWS has to be installed on the server side, if you're going to use JAWS in a virtual environment. It does not have to be activated on the server side, because the license is controlled by the local computer, or your computer in this case. This allows you to fully connect to the server side, or the VDI that is set up for you. I would think that it would be a reasonable accommodation for you. Some VDI's are reset after you sign off, meaning you have to configure JAWS every time. This is becoming more and more common, given security concerns. As long as you have a way of launching JAWS on the server side, you should be good. In one particular instance, we have to use Narrator to get things going, and then once the VDI is fully loaded, then we can launch JAWS.
There are a lot of ways you can do this.

Does this mean that the version of Jaws installed on the server doesn't need to be activated?
Is there a way to access to the information on the server through the command prompt?
I don't know why I have the feeling that I will not be allowed to install Jaws on the server.

Hi Pablo. I've been sifting through my messages from the last two weeks and saw yours. I have used JAWS in a Citrix environment, VMWare and also RDP. Citrix and VMWare seem to work the best. A lot depends on band width. If you have good connectivity, things work well. Of course, you need to have the Remote access add-on license on your version of JAWS, which is an additional 200 bucks.

Re: Problem with email delivery.

Carolyn Arnold
 

I have tried the manually typing. However, I went into
Outlook Options, turned off Auto-Complete, emptied the
Auto-Complete list. I have sent her two emails with no
Undeliverable message emails. I told her what you suggested,
so we give you our thanks for a solution!

Just manually type the address. I believe you can turn
autocomplete off but it isn't necessary. Autocomplete puts
an address on screen before you finish typing but the more
you type, it may change the address and if you type
everything, it does nothing. What you type replaces
whatever autocomplete previously placed in the field. So
try manually typing the entire address and see if that
eliminates the problem. After that test, list members will
know whether other suggestions to avoid autocomplete in this
case would help.

There are ways to place an address in a message using

Mike, does she have any sight?  Even if not, I know some of the newer magnifiers also have built-in speech, although those start to get more expensive.  You might look at the Humanware line of magnifiers.  I thought they had one or more that also had speech.

Subject: [TechTalk] Mail and Documents, Device for Reading

 

Hi All,
This query below is from a smart phone list but, I think y'all might be able to provide an answer for this young lady.  Do any of you know of a device that can be used for the types of reading described below?

Subject: [iDevices] Reading your mail
I was talking with a good friend this morning who is neither a computer user nor an owner of a smart phone. She told me that she has heard of a portable device which reads your mail or other paper documents. I asked her if she meant a c c t v and she said no. What do you all use to read the mail which comes in your mail box or other paper documents if you are not a computer or smart phone user? Is there such a thing as a portable reader and who would make such a device? My friend has a volunteer reader, but can not meet with this person because of the current situation.
Thank you, Michelle

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.
