Peter,

I saw this device at convention. You have to keep a device in your mouth and a cap on your head with a camera, while you travel. I can see how this would be of value if you have Neuropathy in your hands. It would be a companion to a cane, not a rplacement. I personally would not like any part of this. I’m sure that wasn’t of much value but I am just sharing one opinion. I hope it works out for you.

Take care!

Tammy

Re: Using DaemonTools Lite ... or something else

Steve Matzura
 

No, not mixed up at all. I tried exactly what you recommended, and it would definitely work if my source file format for creating the audio CD is wave. That's OK, just another hoop to jump through. I was hoping for a virtual device that has a virtual empty disc mounted in it that I could just write to using AnyBurn or CD Burner XP, both of which allow using just about any file format under the sun and convert it on the fly for writing to an audio CD. It's OK, I can install an audio file format converter and add it to the steps required to effect the result.

On second thought and first look,no, CDEmu won't do it either. I'm
beginning
to think the only way I can do this is to go to a machine with a
working
drive, waste a disc, then convert it to image file format.

Hey Steve, Yes it would. I remember trying MagicISO a long time ago
and since I didn't know much about compiling ISO images it was a

at the time and ended up liking UltraISO so I didn't go back to
MagicISO and give it a fair chance.
I found this little tutorial and it sounds like they've made it much
easier to create images, check it out here:

http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-create-iso-image-file.htm

Now, If you need to mount that image as a virtual drive, I would
highly recommend the free program CDEMU . You can download it here:

http://wincdemu.sysprogs.org/
Once you've created your disk image, .iso file, you would only
need
to find it on your hard drive using windows explorer and press the
application key on it and select mount image. You get a little window
that allows you to choose a new drive letter for your virtual drive
and a few options like, keep disk mounted on reboot, which comes in
handy if your working on some type of installation disk which will
need to reboot and continue installing after startup. Once your done
with your project, press the applications key on the virtual drive
and press the eject option and it disappears, just like that.

Good luck with your project,
Blaster

I haven't used it in years, but essentially, there's a file
explorer
type window with your hard drive on top and the new image on the
bottom. You can copy files or folders from your hard drive and
then
paste them into the new image and then save it as a .iso file.
Also, a neat extra feature you can make an .iso image of an
existing
cd or dvd and then add files or folders to it and burn them back to
a
disk.

They used to have a trial period to check out the software, give it
a try.

Re: HELP WITH DELETING EXCEL DATA

Thom Spittle
 

Here are my ways of deleting cells:
If you want to delete a column of data, control space to select the column
and press delete.

For Rows, press shift space to select the row, and press delete.

To delete a box of data, press control g for the goto dialog box. Type in
the top left and bottom right coordinates with a colon between them, like
a1:e25.
When you press enter, all cells from a1 to e25 will be selected, then just
hit the delete key.

If you want to delete a cell here, and a cell there, use the goto dialog and
type in each cell with a comma between each of them. When you hit enter,
each of those cells will be selected. Press the delete key to clear the
cells.

Hope this helps,
Thom

Re: PDF Document

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Yes, I did scan it for her with DocuScan Plus, and it created a very nice .html document that she could read handily. It also had an option for emailing the document directly to her, so that's what I did.

I highly recommend this program which is part of the Serotek suite of programs. It's well worth the $300.00 you invest in it. It even scans colored paper!

I got a letter a couple of years ago from a doctor and I put it through Kurzie. Kurzie couldn't parse the thing at all! I was keenly disappointed because I wanted to know the results of the test I'd taken. Well, I decided to put it through DocuScan and it came up singing, read the whold letter, no problems.

Later that week, I asked my reader what was unusual about the letter. "Oh, Ann," she said. "It's on pink paper."

Happily the results of the test were fine. However, I learned that Kurzie has trouble with pink paper.

DocuScan Plus at least lets you have a relatively cheap OCR solution. Now if you're really serious about scanning books or large documents, or you have lots and lots of .pdf files, you may wish to invest in Kurzie, but for the occasional .pdf file or mail or the like, it's superb. I have no experience with Jaws 2018 which is supposed to have an OCR component.

be done does not have an audio format converter, so I either have to get
and install one, which isn't a problem, or convert the files myself and
then bring them to the machine in question to show the person how to do
it himself. There's always somethin'.

Steve, If you have MagicISO and follow that link I posted in my last
message, it should do exactly what you need. When you open MagicISO
and go File then New it will allow you to browse for files and folders
that you want to include into your project. Once it's got everything
that you want in there, you just save it as an ISO image file. It
really sounds like what your trying to do, since you already have the
program, take a whack at it. As far as the program AnyBurn, I haven't
tried it, but if it's accessible and it's free, then yeah, give it a
try too.

HTH,

When you bring up the program you tab through the buttons to do what
you
want.
It is very accessible with both Jaws and NVDA.
It even works with Narrator.

On second thought and first look,no, CDEmu won't do it either. I'm
beginning
to think the only way I can do this is to go to a machine with a
working
drive, waste a disc, then convert it to image file format.

Hey Steve, Yes it would. I remember trying MagicISO a long time ago
and since I didn't know much about compiling ISO images it was a
little confusing, but I was trying out a couple of different flavors
at the time and ended up liking UltraISO so I didn't go back to
MagicISO and give it a fair chance.
I found this little tutorial and it sounds like they've made it much
easier to create images, check it out here:

http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-create-iso-image-file.htm

Now, If you need to mount that image as a virtual drive, I would
highly recommend the free program CDEMU . You can download it here:

http://wincdemu.sysprogs.org/
Once you've created your disk image, .iso file, you would only
need
to find it on your hard drive using windows explorer and press the
application key on it and select mount image. You get a little window
that allows you to choose a new drive letter for your virtual drive
and a few options like, keep disk mounted on reboot, which comes in
handy if your working on some type of installation disk which will
need to reboot and continue installing after startup. Once your done
with your project, press the applications key on the virtual drive
and press the eject option and it disappears, just like that.

Good luck with your project,
Blaster

Thanks, Blaster. I have a license for MagicISO. Would it do
essentially the same thing?

Hey Steve, I don't think you need a virtual drive to do what you
want, maybe you could use something like ultraiso to create the
type
of images you need for storage and for burning to disk.
I haven't used it in years, but essentially, there's a file
explorer
type window with your hard drive on top and the new image on the
bottom. You can copy files or folders from your hard drive and
then
paste them into the new image and then save it as a .iso file.
Also, a neat extra feature you can make an .iso image of an
existing
cd or dvd and then add files or folders to it and burn them back to
a
disk.

They used to have a trial period to check out the software, give it
a try.

I have an unrestricted license for DaemonTools Lite, used it a
couple three or four times, then forgot how to use it! I'm trying
to do nothing more complicated than create a virtual device, make
that device think there's a blank disc loaded into it, write some
files to it, then turn that into an image I can put somewhere.
Anybody know how to do that either with DT or something else? I
tried Virtual Clone Drive, but couldn't make it create a device my
CD-writer software (CD Burner XP) could access.

Thanks in advance.
