streamin and trekin

Monte Single
 

I have no numbers to go by, but I would bet you dollars to doughnuts that humanware sells way more victor reader streams, than victor reader treks.

At a wild guess, they probably sell ten times as many streams.

So the trek would llikely be discontinued before the stream.

And I am totally addicted to mine.

I use it more than my iphone  and more than my p c.

I know,  after a few days of instruction  by   a very patient  person, I could learn how to read books on my phone,  but I hope I die before this happens;  it’s alright, I am over seventy.

 And I also know there a lots of people who prefer to use a victor stream or other talking book device

Instead of their smart phone.

 

 

Here’s to many more sales for the Lazman!

Hi all,

Well, Laz, if people can believe that a vaccination will make one sterile, then they can surely believe that the victor Reader is being discontinued. I'm completely serious! My friend Martha knows a group of nurses in VT who actually believe this rot Wonder what would happen if I got on Public Media and said the sky was green?

Always remember The Wizard's First Rule, according to Terry Goodkind. (People will believe anything at all so long as they either are afraid it might be true or want it to be true.)

Weapons against rumors are the answers to the Five W's. Who told you the rumor? How reliable is that source? What proof did your source offer? What he said either makes sense or doesn't. Why would she tell you the rumor and more importantly why would it make sense to her? Where did your source get the rumor? When was this started? Now we come to the most important question of all how does this information benefit the rumor source or the object of the rumor? Qui bono? Qui Bono?

Now I could go through all the above questions and quash the rumor, but I'll let you all do that. Please remember that the Victor Reader Stream is one of Humanware's largest cash cows. That's all I'm going to say about this except to repeat Qui Bono?

If this rumor is true, then maybe Humanware is planning to discontinue the VR Stream but continue to sell the more expensive and feature laden VR Trek so that they will only have to produce one model for all needs.

Dear all,

I have often been part of groups which, to identify mutually
convenient meeting timings, make a When2Meet form for everyone to
fill. However, using NVDA and Firefox, I have found the site to be
barely accessible. Since I am in a similar situation at present, I
would like to learn of accessible alternatives so that I can suggest
my team to consider switching. Could you please suggest any simple,
accessible options similar to When2Meet? Alternatively, is there some
way to fill out When2Meet calendar-based forms independently?

I would truly appreciate any assistance.

Thanks.

Application vs. Program (What’s the Difference?)
 
Last Updated on September 14, 2020 by
RapidAPI Staff

Application vs. Program
 
In the ever-evolving world of technology, we often have to familiarize ourselves with various terms that come up every single day. And while most of the
words come with sharp differences, at times, we come across terms that are considered to mean the same thing even though they are totally different.
 
A perfect example is the term program and application. Some years back, the word program was used when referring to desktop operating systems such as windows.
Additionally, apps were associated with mobile OS, such as
iOS and Android.
 
However, when desktop applications were developed, the difference between the two become a little blurry. 
 
Consequently, a major concern is that most users don’t understand that there are subtle differences between programs and applications. If you are one such
user, this article expounds in detail the similarities and the differences between the two. 
 
Meaning of Each Term
What is an Application?
 
An application (app) is a program or a collection of programs that have been designed for the end-users. They help you to perform a set of coordinated
tasks, functions, or activities. From the definition, we deduce that all apps are programs, but not all programs are necessarily apps. Another crucial
thing to note about applications is that they can’t run on their own, and they depend on system software to operate. 
 
What is a Program?
 
Programs are a collection or sequence of executable instructions that aid in the automatic performance of targeted tasks on a computer. It refers to a
set of coded instructions that a computer can recognize to solve a problem or yield the desired result.
 
Similarities Between Applications and Programs
 
The main similarity between applications and programs is the fact that they are both used to perform various functions or tasks on a computer. 
 
Additionally, since an application is a collection of computer programs that help end-users to solve a problem, it means that these programs must coordinate
and interact for this to happen. We are simply saying that all apps need programs to perform end-users’ commands. For example, when you want to watch a
movie via VLC, the player will require
audio and video drivers to operate. 
 
Differences Between an Application and a Program
1. Installation
 
A program requires an installer that is packaged with necessary files for it to be installed on a computer. Conversely, it may also seek to download more
data from the web before it installs. On the other hand, an app is a single file that a user downloads from the internet and installs it on their device.
And unlike programs, you don’t need a separate uninstaller to uninstall apps from your computer. 
 
2. Target User
 
As mentioned earlier, an app is developed with the end-user in mind. As such, it is structured to help users complete a given function, task, or activity.
A program, on the other hand, is created to help a computer execute a specific purpose, and it can run on the background without the end-users intervention. 
 
3. User Interface
 
Since an app is designed to be utilized by real individuals, it boasts a user interface (UI). However, programs don’t necessarily need to have a UI for
them to be considered complete, For instance, viruses and malware that are used by hackers to infect your computer are programs, but they don’t have a
UI.
 
4. Development
 
Since an application can feature several programs, it is usually developed through a structured and documented process that may involve several individuals.
On the other hand, a program can be created by a single individual. However, it is vitally essential to understand that today’s apps can be developed by
one person
utilizing APIs,
libraries,
and
frameworks.
 But since these essentials are also designed by someone else, it still means that several people will still be involved in the development process. 
 
5. Operation
 
While an app requires various programs to exist and operate, programs don’t need an app to execute their roles. For example, while MS Word (an application)
requires multiple drivers such as Prime number sieve and square root finder (programs) to function, the drivers don’t need MS Word to execute their roles.
 
Final Verdict
 
The differences between applications and programs have been blurred for a very long time, and most people have been using them interchangeably. However,
from what we have seen in this article, although apps and programs intersect at some point, they are not synonymous. They are a means to an end, so they
need to be treated differently. We live in a dynamic environment where everything is influenced by technology.  Nevertheless, we must learn to differentiate
terms, whether they have been in existence for decades (programs) or have emerged due to the changes in technology (applications).

As far as I know, removing a program from the apps folder has nothing to do with whether it runs at startup.  I don’t know about Windows 10 apps and others would have to comment on those but as far as I know, the shell:apps folder contains shortcuts to open all programs and has nothing to do with whether they run automatically at bootup. 
 
I don’t think you should remove items from the apps folder without further discussion.

Yo Bro,
 
Try going to All Programs in the Start Menu, and in there find the Start-up folder and if this program is in there you can either delete it, copy  or cut it out and this'll stop it from starting at start-up.
 
If you have a copy of the program you can open the Run dialogue by pressing, Windows Key + R, and type the following
 
shell:appsfolder
 
and press enter.  Find the program in here and remove it.

Windows 10 latest and jfw 2020.
I installed discord many moons back, how do I have it stop from starting up?
I looked under the start up tab and services tab in msconfig, but discord
was no where to be found.
Then I looked in the discord application itself, and couldn't find anything,
as I am still learning my way around that application.

Depending on what type of file it is dictates on what options you'll get when you open the context menu to see your choices for the item.

As far as I know, removing a program from the apps folder has nothing to do with whether it runs at startup.  I don’t know about Windows 10 apps and others would have to comment on those but as far as I know, the shell:apps folder contains shortcuts to open all programs and has nothing to do with whether they run automatically at bootup. 
 
I don’t think you should remove items from the apps folder without further discussion.

Yo Bro,
 
Try going to All Programs in the Start Menu, and in there find the Start-up folder and if this program is in there you can either delete it, copy  or cut it out and this'll stop it from starting at start-up.
 
If you have a copy of the program you can open the Run dialogue by pressing, Windows Key + R, and type the following
 
shell:appsfolder
 
and press enter.  Find the program in here and remove it.
 
 
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi. Do the following. Go to your start menu and type startup apps.
Press enter to open start up apps settings. Tab through and turn off the
apps you don't want to run at startup.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.
Chris Judge

Windows 10 latest and jfw 2020.
I installed discord many moons back, how do I have it stop from starting up?
I looked under the start up tab and services tab in msconfig, but discord
was no where to be found.
Then I looked in the discord application itself, and couldn't find anything,
as I am still learning my way around that application.

Re: Questions about OCR in windows 10

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

What screen reader are you using? If you're using Jaws it has OCR capabilities. Otherwise it's worth investing in a dedicated OCR program. You may not want or need Kurzie, but may I suggest Docuscan Plus? It's been improved, and for a fraction of the price for Kurzie you've got OCR that works and is available to you from all your devices.

https://pneumasolutions.com/products/docuscan-plus/

Now, if you are planning to scan lots of books, then you want a professional OCR package. Kurzie, Kurzweil 2000, is what you want. However, Docuscan Plus does the job handily, and sometimes is better than Kurzie.

One brief anecdote; I got a letter in the mail from my doctor after I'd had my usual mammogram. I put the letter on my scanner and used Kurzie to scan it. It wouldn't scan! It came out all jumbled. I was truly disappointed. But, I decided to try Docuscan Plus. When I did, the program read the letter perfectly! Later that week, when my reader came, I showed her the letter and asked her what was different about it.

"Oh," she said. "It's on pink paper."

Docuscan Plus was able to read the pink paper just fine. Go figure! Fortunately, the letter said my results were just fine.

Ann P.

I didn’t think you could share individual files but I may be wrong.  I’ll do a little checking.  I see a share option when I check in the context menu for an individual file.  I had thought sharing was only available for folders.

That happens when you have exceeded the amount of band width your links have for I believe it is a day.  If this is the first time this has happened, the suspension will end twenty four hours after it began.  If this has happened more than once, the suspension will be longer, perhaps two days, I’m not sure. 
 
I don’t think you can share files, though I haven’t checked.  You may have to share a folder with specific people.  If you want to do that, I’ll look at the dialog again and tell you how.  But if you want to share it with more than one person, I’m not sure of the syntax.  Someone else may know.
 
but since your links are suspended, you are sharing them with too many people or what you are sharing is so large that not as many people who download it using your link or links are exceeding your bandwidth.  You may want to get a paid account, which gives you much more data allowance or you may want to use a sharing service such as We Transfer or another one I’d have to check the name of.  I can discuss those services more if you wish..

Hi

It called Copy dropbox link,but when I hit enter on that, the following message appeared on notification:

Couldn’t copy link, You don’t have permission to create a link to this content

When you send the link, change the 0 at the end to a 1 so the file will download from Drop Box just as it would in general.

Re: chrome and setting home page

Gene
 

I haven’t seen that.  I’m saying that when I set a home page, then close and open Chrome, I’m in a blank tab.  If I control tab, if the home page has had time to load, I’m on that page.  I don’t use Chrome much, I use Edge and Brave much more and that may be true of all of them but I haven’t checked.

Hi Gene

 

Agreed, I remember seeing such a tab, it gives you a list of websites that you have opened and you can select one as your home page.

I don't think so and I didn't see such a box.  If you did this a good while ago, the interface keeps changing. 

 

My guess is that the page specified is loading but more than one tab is opening.  When you open the browser, after a pause to let the page load, move by tab to see if any others are opened.  The command is control tab.

But of course, how else are you going to test to see if what you did works since showing whatever you want shown occurs automatically when the browser runs.

I should redo it since I had no clue how I accomplished it.

When I try so many options back to back, I tend to forget which one worked lol.

Am I suppose to reboot or relaunch the browser after I make the change?

I haven’t looked at this in any detail but if you use the add new page part of the dialog, there is an add button.  This dialog may work better if browse mode is off.  I don’t know if that is the case but if you don’t get where you expect to be when you activate the add page button, turn browse mode or the virtual pc cursor off, activate the button and tab around. 

 

There is a new tab radio button and I don’t know if that acts like a home page or if the show pages does or just what the difference is between the two.  But it may be that one reason you had problems yesterday is that you didn’t have browse mode or the virtual PC cursor, whetever your screen-reader calls it, off even before you activated the button that opens the dialog.

It's been a while since I set a home page in Chrome. So, I don't remember exactly how I did it. But there might be a Save button at the bottom of the page. If you didn't click that, any changes you made wouldn't have taken effect. I hope this helps.
