Re: Will Voice Over or Jaws read a screen shot of a Paypal receipt to me?

Thomas N. Chan
 

Voiceover  have OCR functionality, it does have some ways to read the picture or images if there's, something to be recognized
if the screenshot is taken through the IOS, chances are, it's clear, voiceover should be able to pick up. at least 70% of  words.
or even recognise some of the images.
unless you are running an old version of IOS like 13, i can't remember 14.1 or whichever version comes with this function.

Re: Inselin Pump Controller Potential hacking

James Bentley
 

Its important for this information to reach all users of this type of
equipment.

We all are special with individual needs. For my diabetes, I want to decide
myself when insulin is going in to my body.

I am 68 years old. As a young person, I would never had believed that
society would evolve in to such a depraved group of people. It just takes a
tiny few to mess it up for every one.

Thanks for the post,

James B

Jaffar,

Oh My Gosh this was beautiful!! The perfect song to share with Love Ones during a long separation. I pray that you are able to return home to  the warm loving arms of your family soon.

Hi all.  One of the consequences of this horrid pandemic is that some of

us have been separated from our families because of travel restrictions
that have had to be imposed.  As such, we are, in many ways homeless
because we are stuck in a non-family environment.  To those of you who
suffer from loneliness or homesickness like me, I'd like to dedicate
this musical message that I recorded for my wife and kids to you as
well.  Stay safe and be strong in the hope that we can go back home
soon.  Please read the message below.  I hopeGene won't mind.  Cheers!


Message starts here:
Hi All.  I am a Singaporean married to a Filipina.  My wife and five
kids are all in the Philippines, and as you would expect, one of the
consequences  of the Pendemic is that we are not allowed to travel, and
even if we were, then we have to go through Quarantine in Manila, before
we can go to the city or province in which our families live.  So I sang
this classic and sent it over Whatsapp to my wife and kids earlier to
try to quell the loneliness and homesickness I'm feeling.  It's the
classic song Home, not sure who the original singer was, but was revived
and made popular by Michael Buble.  I've been away from the wife and
kids for almost two years, and it is very unlikely that I can go back
this year.

This was a quick recording and mix, so it is far from perfect, but I
hope you guys will appreciate it just the same.  For instrumentation, I
used a cheap folk guitar with a very good pickup with three band
equalizer.  I connected that to a little yamaha amplifier which i in
turn connected to my Behringer interface.  For drums, I used a Cajon
with a thick wire brush as a stick and a ball of cloth nailed to a stick
to replicate the bass drum pedal, since I couldn't find the appropriate
drum set I needed to get the feel of the song.  I added highhats and
cymbals and toms from EzDrummer and some sound font strings to make it
all complete.  It's not perfect, but I hope you guys appreciate it just
the same.  The link is below:

Will Voice Over or Jaws read a screen shot of a Paypal receipt to me?

James Bentley
 

Hello,

 

I received a Paypal receipt that I would like to be able to read with both Jaws and Voice Over on my PC and ipPhone SE, 2020.

 

I am using Windows10 with the latest version of Jaws.  And, IOS version 14.8 on the phone.

 

Thanks a bunch,

As Concerns Windows 11 Installation

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

So with all the discussion of Windows 11 installation and functionality, i decided to check for updates and install Windows 11. The first thing I did was to download a file that is supposed to determine whether or not my system will support Windows 11. The file is called: WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup.exe.

I did this, ran it and it approved of my current system. Then I went to the Windows update on my system and saw that Windows 11 was indeed available for my system. I click on the download and install button and after several minutes, I was prompted to restart my computer. After another few minutes, my system booted successfully and I received the message: "Updates are being installed; please don't turn off your computer.'  After several more minutes, this message went away and everything ran fine.

...Except when I opened the start menu and typed in Winver and pressed enter, Windows informed me that I was still running Windows 10.

When I checked Windows update, it now says that I am up to date.
What happened?

Re: How do you post to a facebook group?

If you just want to post to a group, once you're on that group's page, press the letter E until you get to an edit field that says something like "What's On Your Mind" or "Write post." Type your post, then tab until you find the Post button.

As for your second question, I might be wrong, but I don't think others can see which groups you're in. So, I doubt you need to worry about that.
