Re: NLS Folder Question

You don’t need to create any kind of a folder for them.  If you want to put mp3s on a drive that has NLS books in the route of the drive, then, you would have to create a folder for the mp3s.  But for BARD books, you don’t have to do anything except put them on the drive after you unzip them.  Pam.

I vaguely remember that I need to create an NLS folder on my thumb drive if I wish to place NLS books on it to use with the NLS player. What is that folder called?
 
Thank you.

Re: Victor stream email list

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Karim Lakhani & List:
The list has a couple of Humanware dealers on it, however almost all parts
for the Stream are proprietary, it consists of the case, battery,
motherboard and keypad. What parts are you seeking? Humanware does not do
repairs to the headphone or microphone jacks, they appear to replace the
entire Motherboard, either that or doing some micro-soldering is
outrageously expensive! You may find a local electronics repair center will
do headphone or mike jack repairs at a fraction of Humanware's charge.

Re: What is your typing speed?

Hi Group,


Before my health decline, I could type around 150 Words per minute.  I am still about 75  word per minute now.  As far as advice, the only way to get good at this or any other skill is to practice a lot.  Before the days of talking computers, when I did everything by rote memorization, I was more cautious.  I don't quite remember the speed--probably about 60 or 70 words per minute, but once I got speech with my computer, and I could hear each word and spell check, that's when my speed increased--until my neural motor conditions slowed me down.

Accessible price tracking extensions?

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

I’m in search of an accessible price tracking service/extension. I’ve tried CamelCamelCamel Keepa, Price Plus and Honey for example. For the usual sites, Amazon, NewEgg, BestBuy and so on,  but all in all, they don’t really provide this info in an accessible format. They’re all pretty much graph/chart driven. There is sometimes some info that can be accessed. CamelCamelCamel can provide the highest/lowest price, but as far as more detailed info? Not really.

Is anyone aware of a service/extension that can provide this sort of information in an accessible manner? I’m guessing most likely in a table format? To be clear, I’m not looking for a price tracker that can alert one when there’s a price drop. That I can get to work fine. It’s the historical price tracking stuff I’m interested in.

My main screen reader is Jaws, but I can also use NVDA if that makes any sort of a difference.

Thanks,

 


OT: request for participation in a study

enes sarıbaş
 

Hi all,

As part of my MPhil degree in Theoretical and Applied linguistics at the University of Cambridge, I am conducting research on how blind and sighted adults understand and interpret language. I am looking for congenitally blind and early blind and sighted adults aged between 18 and 67, who do not have any additional disabilities, and who grew up in an English-speaking country. I am currently finalizing my survey and expect to complete it within a week.  I expect it to take between 40-45 minutes when finished. Participants in the survey will be entered into a draw to win four £25.00 amazon.co.uk gift cards. Anyone who would like to participate in the survey please e-mail me  at my academic address (es777@...), and I will send out the survey when it is completed.

I apologize for the off topic post.

Hi Ron.
Your comment about the difference between Siri and how it works on the 7 and eight caught my attention.
The fact that Siri is in "the cloud" is one of the reasons I prefer not to use it. Siri working :onboard" is more appealing to me.
Now If the I phone 8 would go on sale for zero down with a 2 year contract I would go for that.
That's me.
Always wanting the thing that is just out of reach.

Hi Group,


I am learning the iPhone through an instructor who is Apple certified.
He has instructed me to learn the keyboard method, but I tell you, using
the dictation method works so well for me. I even sent a perfectly
formatted version of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's The Arrow and the Song
from my iPhone to my main e-mail address accessible from my computer and
it had only one small mistake.


The voice recognition on the iPhone is so remarkable it defies
description. BTW, someone on this list had said that the dictation
method is insecure because it is using Siri in the cloud to accomplish
the task. According to my instructor, beginning with iPhone 8, this is
no longer true. The whole process occurs on the iPhone itself and not
in the cloud. Thus the dictation method is no less secure than any
other method of text input.

Now, I can't type 85 words a minute, like I did medical records, but I can type, and the thing tells me what is misspelled, then there are words I can double-tap on, if I find the right one. How fine is that? Of course, that should happen with the Bluetooth too. It's just that I had a keyboard with my Android tablet - loved the tablet, did not like the keyboard at all, thought it was clumsy and stiff. I have been much more immediately accurate on the iPhone one than I was on that one. I would go into notes and practice every day to try to get better at it. Good thing that all of that is available, so whatever works to our best advantage, we can use.

Best regards,

Carolyn
