If this wasn’t your only box, you could do a total format and try a clean install of Windows. But since this is your only box, leaving alone is the best idea you got.

                Hi all,

When Microsoft tried to install windows 2032 or whatever the latest version of windows ten is, the installation failed. So I think Bill white is right. I have a hardware issue on my computer. Jim

Re: Braille Displays

Abbie Taylor
 

Hi, Allen, I recently purchased the Brailliant BI 20X from Humanware and love it! The features I use the most are its basic editor and its terminal, which allows me to connect to my PC and iPhone at the same time and switch between the two. It also has a calculator, file manager, and access to online services including Bookshare, NFB Newsline, and NLS. It will eventually have the capacity to play audiobooks and music in mp3 format. For $1,895.00, it's not a bad deal. I hope that helps.

Re: Returning Stream second generation card to the unit

Carolyn Arnold
 

Steve, if no one can help you, contact Dale Campbell,
866-922-8877 or 845-282-0643. He can put you in touch with
Conradt Kozorski. Conrad is the guy who sells bigger
internal memory cards for the streams and installs them for
a fee. Conrad can tell you what to do to get it back in
right.

If you bought it from a dealer, I don't know if a dealer
could help you, but, of course, I would not ask Humanware.

Everyone knows the old adage, "When in doubt, don't." Well,
I removed the internal storage card from beneath the battery
of my Second Generation stream with the hope of copying the
operating system of the unit to a slightly higher capacity
card. Of course, my PC doesn't recognize the card, so I
chickened out and now I want to put the internal card back
into the Stream and I can't figure out how it goes in.
Could one of you provide me some tips on how to get the
cursed card back into my Victor. I have the card and a
metal tray-like gizmo that was associated with the card. I
know, I know. You would say that I took the thing out, I
should be able to put it back in. I actually got my wife
with marque 1 eyeballs to do it, and she can't remember how
it came out. Help!!


Re: Returning Stream second generation card to the unit

I hope you're right Laz. I feel like a certified dummy for intentionally disabling my Victor in a fit of monkey curiosity. I receive tons of podcasts that I like, and I have a giant list of stuff that I get from NFB Newsline. I would unsubscribe from all of it to get my Stream working again. Lesson learned.

Re: Alarm sound of Echo Dot?

Vicky Vaughan
 

Hi Tariq, Thank you for answering my question. 

 

Unfortunately, she responds wit, “Alarm for what time?”  She doesn’t understand that I am not trying to set or change the time, but to get back the original alarm sound which was an alternating up and down tones. 

 

For some unknown reason yesterday morning she switched to playing soft music, which is not effective in waking me up. 

 

Between having hearing loss and sometimes being deep asleep at the time for the alarm, I need the former loud tones.

 

Thanks again for your suggestion.

 

Sincerely, Vicky V

Thanks very much for any help!

Hi folks. Don't forget, windows 10 has an email app built in that works pretty well. I rarely use it myself as I prefer outlook, but I have many clients who are using it. If basic email management is all you want, it works fine. If you want to get fancy, set message rules and such, it's not the program for you.

No, for a time, someone was giving away the program, then asking for a mandatory donation, to get the modified version. I have no idea if you can find someone to provide the version that was free. it is not the most recently released version, and has bugs in it that the more recent versions don't. Unless you have specific needs that can't be met by another program, you might have fewer problems using something like Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail, which, it is my understanding, still works in Windows 10, though you will have to find someone to provide it.

I think the version of Outlook Express that works with Windows 10 is called
OE Classic, but it is not free, and although users have reported that it has
so far not been affected by feature updates, there is no guarantee that this
will continue to be the case with future updates, and it could stop working
at any time, which is why relying on it as your email client of choice is
not a good idea.

Outlook Express was in Windows XP

For Windows 10, the equivalent would be Mail which is built into Windows.







If you don't want to use that, your alternatives are Outlook if you have
