Hi Monte,
 
Would you please tell me more about your Bose Revolve?
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Yes,  that's right.
When I turn on my boes revolve,  a female voice announces the battery level,
announces pairing and connection type.

I have a boes revolve.
It is the size of a large water glass, slightly tapered from the bottom to
top.
It definitely has bass.
I can make the neighbours complain without trying.
It can use Bluetooth and audio cable.
I think it costs about 250 u s dolla.

When you put this puppy in your purse, you know it's there!

Re: very disappointing knows

Yeah with sub par audio. Its like every other specialized device for blind
people. Skimp on the stuff that matters.
My opinion based on my use and trial of such products. You don't get what
you pay for IMO.
Obviously I don't share the same view as a lot of people though , or many
more things would tang than do.

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?

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!

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.

Accessible Group Scheduling Tool

Bhavya shah
 

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.
