Hi, if you're on Facebook, there's a Braille Displays group where I

think people have posted their thoughts. If you're not on Facebook,

let me know, and I'll see about hunting down the thread and posting it

here.

Orbit Reader 40 review? Thoughts?

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So I was thinking of upgrading to the Orbit Reader 40 display, but haven’t really been able to come across any reviews on the product. Write ups on the Orbit Reader 20 Plus yes, but not much for the 40. Can I just assume that they’re the same, but for amount of Braille cells?

There was one review I came across on Apple Vis but it was more focused on the device's sound than anything else. I did find one YouTube video, but it’s in French and well… I don’t speak French.

I was thinking of the Mantis 40, but honestly, I’m pretty happy with my mechanical keyboard for my desktop and I already have an 80 cell display connected to it, so this would be a more portable option for my laptop and iPhone for reading mostly. I don’t need another keyboard for that.

Anyway, if anyone’s got an Orbit Reader 40, I’d be curious to know their thoughts on how it’s holding up and general usage.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

Hi folks.  Below is a download link, and a streaming link if you don't want to download to a BBC world service podcast.  You might find the first item of interest if you have a mobile phone; iPhone or Android.  If you opt out of sending Apple or Google data, the phones do it anyway whether you like it or not.  This podcast discusses this issue.  It would appear according to the Podcast that Google is more culpable than Apple, anyhow, you can listen for yourself.  Walter.

Hi Gene.  I ran through his ping results through a networking software that me and my colleague helped build for our company use. to troubleshoot problems like this.  Cheers!

I'm curious about what is occurring.  I don't know enough about ping to be sure I understand such a test.  I know about pinging a site but I didn't know people pinged specific pages on sites. Perhaps my question can be put this way:

The page in question is one from which you initiate a download but it isn't a direct link to the file.  Would ping give different results in one case as opposed to another?  Also, when you ping a page as opposed to a direct link to a file, is the return received by different ports, which would tell you if a port is blocked by the computer or router?

Hi Mike.  If you know the direct address of the site's download page, please do the following and email me the results.

go to your command prompt ant type:

ping followed by the download page's address.  Once you hear any output from the screen reader, press Alt+space and arrow up or down to edit, then to select all.  Then get to edit again in the same way and look for copy.  Then go to notepad, paste the results and email the text to me.  I should be able to tell you what to do after reading the result of your ping.

Hi Mike.  I think your windows 7 pc is not able to recieve network packets in a stable manner.  This may be caused either by your ethernet card or your router.  If you are on a router, I would suggest you reset your router, restart your machine and see if it helps.  another scenario would be that your ethernet card needs either a drriver reinstall or an update.  Use your windows 10 pc to go to your window 7 ethernet card's website to check for the latest driver and update appropriately.  Install the updated driver, reset your router and restart your pc to see if it solves your problem, if not, you can get back to me and i will arrange a remote session with you if you like and help you troubleshoot your pc.  Cheers!

Okay, here's something I tried just to see what would happen.  I downloaded the file with Windows 10 and uploaded the file  to my Dropbox account.
 
I then copied the direct Dropbox download link into the Run dialogue and 2 different browsers.  All downloads failed.
 
Well, I think I've had enough for tonight.  Thank you all for all your help and input.  It's greatly appreciated.

John,

Actually when I paste the URl into the Run dialogue, a browser or just press
enter on it the file starts to download, but it fails anywhere between 10 &
65%. I've tried with Edge, Chrome and Waterfox on my Windows 7 computer and
with Chrome and Edge on the Win-10 machine.


Stay safe and take care. Mike.

That’s odd that it can’t find the host

That could explain it but why would it not find the host on a 7 box but on
a 10 box work fine?

Hi Mike. If you know the direct address of the site's download page, please
do the following and email me the results.

go to your command prompt ant type:

ping followed by the download page's address. Once you hear any output from
the screen reader, press Alt+space and arrow up or down to edit, then to
select all. Then get to edit again in the same way and look for copy. Then
go to notepad, paste the results and email the text to me. I should be able
to tell you what to do after reading the result of your ping. HTH and
Cheers!

Re: Downloads Fail With Any Browser

Gene
 

I just tried pinging the address and I also received a could not find host message. Yet my browsers go to the page and most of the file has been downloaded here with no probloem. Therefore, the results of the ping test seem not to indicate anything regarding the problem. I wonder why the ping request is unsuccessful.

I really don't think this will help, but I'm curious what would happen if you try a different download location.  Are you using the same download location with all browsers?

Hi Jaffar,
 
I've rebooted the modem and router several times over the last 2 days and it hasn't helped.
 
Ordinarily I would take you up on the remote session, but we're leaving this house in the morning and going back home and we won't be back to this house for 3 weeks.  A close friend is is a tech and he's going to stop by the house and take a look at what's going on.
 
Thank you very much for your offer to remote into my computer and all your input, it's greatly appreciated.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Mike.  I think your windows 7 pc is not able to recieve network packets in a stable manner.  This may be caused either by your ethernet card or your router.  If you are on a router, I would suggest you reset your router, restart your machine and see if it helps.  another scenario would be that your ethernet card needs either a drriver reinstall or an update.  Use your windows 10 pc to go to your window 7 ethernet card's website to check for the latest driver and update appropriately.  Install the updated driver, reset your router and restart your pc to see if it solves your problem, if not, you can get back to me and i will arrange a remote session with you if you like and help you troubleshoot your pc.  Cheers!

Re: Downloads Fail With Any Browser

Gene
 

I'm curious about what is occurring.  I don't know enough about ping to be sure I understand such a test.  I know about pinging a site but I didn't know people pinged specific pages on sites. Perhaps my question can be put this way:

The page in question is one from which you initiate a download but it isn't a direct link to the file.  Would ping give different results in one case as opposed to another?  Also, when you ping a page as opposed to a direct link to a file, is the return received by different ports, which would tell you if a port is blocked by the computer or router?

ping followed by the download page's address.  Once you hear any output from the screen reader, press Alt+space and arrow up or down to edit, then to select all.  Then get to edit again in the same way and look for copy.  Then go to notepad, paste the results and email the text to me.  I should be able to tell you what to do after reading the result of your ping.  HTH and Cheers!

Hi All,

 

I can download a file with Windows 10, but I can't using Windows 7.  It's the same exact URL.  I can download this file with any browser on Windows 10, but it won't download with any browser with Windows 7.  With Windows 7 the download will start, but it'll fail from anywhere from a few seconds to a couple of minutes, where with Windows this 1.1 GB file will fully download in a couple of minutes.  I am not getting any errors or security messages on the Windows 7 computer at all, it's like the download is timing out.  I tried different ethernet cables and ports and didn't help.  Does anyone have any idea as what I need to check?

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

 

 


Re: looking for computer speakers with volume knob on speaker

Hello, I got these speakers, they sound great and they are USB powered and look like wooden bookshelf speakers. I have them on my fire stick now because they sounded so good and looked better on my wooden dresser woe. But they were on my desk and the wooden casing improved the sound and they did not vibrate off my desk. They have a nob on the left speaker and it can turn off the speakers and they have braided cables, not the cheap looking kind so, they ran across my desk perfectly. I did not want bluetooth and the other USB speakers sound crappy to my ears. So I got these and i use speaker stands to put them up higher and room sound is excellent.Agood price for nice sounding USB speakers.

Hi all,


Can anybody recommend a set of computer speakers that has the volume knob on one of the speakers? I recently bought a set of speakers but they have an inline volume and I'd rather the volume be on one of the speakers to make it easier to reach.


I'd also like to get them from amazon because I have a gift card I need to use.


Thanks.


Troy
