Hey Andy,
Thanks for this.  There are a lot of good videos on YouTube as well, but everyone that I talk with says to listen to Him because of coming from the point of view of a blind person.

I think there has been talk on the Zoom F6 multi track recorder, but as usual I was not interested at the time.  Apparently there was a demo done by someone on Flying Blind, or it was mentioned on Top Tech Tidbits.  Does anyone know where it was, or what I am talking about?  We Googled it and found some stuff but not the demo I am talking about.  Many thanks.   Any help is appreciated.

Smart AudioBook Player is very good.
I loved it when I had an Android device.
The best audiobook player I've ever tried.
I can't speak of it's accessibility now since I'm now using iPhone.
However, my guess is that it still works well with TalkBack.

If you search for Zoom f6 multitrack recorder blind you will find a Jonathan Mosen presentation early in the results.
https://mosen.org/mosen-at-large-episode-35-gary-odonoghue-reviews-and-demonstrates-the-zoom-f6-multi-track-field-recorder-and-its-ios-app-from-a-blindness-perspective/
Part of searching is experimenting and learning when to restrict a search and how. Since you were uncertain of the source, I searched using the word blind.

Of course, you can search for specific sources if you wish and think you might find something but if you don't, broaden the search.

My point is to teach something about searching using an example which has come up. Most sighted people Google constantly. A lot of blind people, because they don't search regularly, are at a great information disadvantage. I'm trying to encourage experimentation to lessen the information disadvantage.

You can also type this in the search field in the start menu.

this computer.
3. Tab to the Apply, button & press the spacebar, & it'll say something like Automatically sign in box.  You'll need to type in your password, tab 1 time,

How To Automatically Login In Windows 10
 
Want to quickly boot to your Windows 10 desktop by skipping the login screen?
Would you like to avoid typing your account password each time you turn on your PC?
You can configure Windows 10 to automatically boot to the desktop or Start
screen.
 
The core benefit of configuring Windows 10 to automatically sign-in is you
don’t need to remember the password, which also means that you save a couple
of seconds during the boot. This, in turn, means that Windows 10 boots to the
Start screen or desktop a couple of seconds faster.
 
The procedure to set up automatic logon in Windows 10 is very similar to the
one in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
 
This method is applicable to both local user account and Microsoft account.
In other words, whether you’re using a Microsoft account or local user
account, you can use this guide to enable automatic logon.
 
WARNING: Enable automatic logon only if you are the sole user of your
computer. If you often share your computer with others, others will be able
to peek into your account without knowing the password.
 
You can follow one of the methods given below to turn on automatic login in
Windows 10.
 
Method 1 of 2
 
Automatically logon without password
 
This is the easiest way to automatically login to Windows 10 without entering
the password.
 
Step 1: First step is to open Run command box by simultaneously pressing
Windows logo and R keys (Windows+R). In the Run dialog box, type Netplwiz and
then press Enter key.
 
Step 2: In the resulting User Accounts dialog, select your user account first
and then uncheck the option labelled Users must enter a user name and
password to use this computer. Click Apply button to see Automatically sign
in box.
 
Step 3: In the Automatically sign in dialog, type your password and then
re-enter the password to confirm the same.
 
Finally, click OK button.
 
Method 2 of 2
 
Turn on automatic sign-in using Registry
 
If, for some reason, you’re not able to configure Windows 10 to automatically
logon by following the above method, please use this method.
 
Step 1: Open Registry Editor. To do so, type Regedit in the Start menu search
box or Run command box and then press Enter key. Click Yes button when you
see the UAC (User Account Control) box.
 
Step 2: In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following key:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
 
Step 3: On the right-side, look for the entry named DefaultUserName,
double-click on it and make sure that your Microsoft account or local user
account name is appearing under Value data box.
 
Step 4: Next, on the right-side again, look for the entry named
DefaultPassword. If the entry doesn’t exist, please create one by
right-clicking on the empty space, clicking New and then clicking String
Value. Rename it to DefaultPassword and enter your password in the Value data
box. Click OK button.
 
Step 5: Finally, you need to enable automatic logon. To do so, on the
right-side (once again), look for the entry labelled AutoAdminLogon and then
change its value from 0 (zero) to 1 (one).
 
That’s it! Restart your PC to see your Windows 10 automatically logging into
your account without asking you to enter the password. Good luck!
 
Without a doubt, the second method is not as easy as the first one.
Have fun with Windows 10!
Russ

Re: Accessible Audio Book Player for Android

Smart AudioBook Player is very good.

I can't speak of it's accessibility now since I'm now using iPhone.
However, my guess is that it still works well with TalkBack.

There is no Windows 2010. the latest version of Windows 10 is 2004.> Are you
talking about Windows 2010? or windows 10?


If windows 2010 then there is a different issue.

Also, does jaws come up saying this? or did someone read it to you?

Where can I find Windows 2010 and would I need to install it from some

This whole thing is something I never expected to run into especially

Are there any recommendations for an accessible audio book player for android. In particular one that remembers your playback position.

Re: Windows Is Gone

I said I'm suspicious. I don't have any definite statement but whether it is the hard drive or not, I'm suspicious that something is causing corruption or loss of data. Having a hard drive fail doesn't have to mean the entire hard drive fails. Why can't enough of the drive fail to cause corruption or loss of data?

I don't know all the malfunctions that can cause such corruption or loss of data. It could be something else, but I'm suspicious that it is a hardware problem.

If you can get narator you should be able to recover. Also, i disagree
with Jene that it's a hard drive failure, If the drive was bad it
wouldn't have booted to the point narator works.

Exactly what i would recommend doing from this point i'm not sure as i

Sent from my iPhoneI just got a new computer. I was able to install Jaws.
But the other day, Narrator said that I needed to reinstall Windows 2010.
I even tried resetting the computer but to no avail. It looks like Windows
needs to be reinstalled.
Where can I find Windows 2010 and would I need to install it from some sort
of drive?
This whole thing is something I never expected to run into especially from a
new machine. Thanks. Oh, one more detail. I do remember performing a Windows
update before this happened.

Hi all,

What has RTFM to do with this audible cartoon?

RTFM is typically used by techies who really don't want to help newbies to learn. In order to RTFM, one must be able to understand what one reads. Lack of understanding is why human trainers who are compassionate and patient are needed.

Easy Computer Fix
I received this from a CEO that I worked with a few years back. He doesn't want to admit it but I think this is his true experience.
I was having trouble with my computer so I called Richard, the 11 year
old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him
to come over.
Richard clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong?'
He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'
I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, 'An ID ten T
error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'
Richard grinned. 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?'
'No,' I replied.
'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.’
So I wrote down: I D 1 0 T
I used to like the little sh*t
Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

I agree with Gene.  It sounds to me like the hard drive could be defective, and so reinstalling Windows10  may not fix the problem.  Who is this Kevin guy?  Does he have a web site that describes the computers he sells?  Or is he just someone who tinkers with computers as a hobby and sells them to blind consumers?  What kind of warranty does he offer, and are its terms posted anywhere online?  Or do you just have to accept the terms of the warranty on faith?  No matter how "reliable" Kevin may seem, if he doesn't offer some kind of definitive warranty, preferably of at least one year, then I would be wary about doing business with him. By contrast, Computers for the Blind has a web site that describes the refurbished computers they sell and the terms of their one year warranty. I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but as always, caveat emptor.

If you can get narator you should be able to recover. Also, i disagree with Jene that it's a hard drive failure, If the drive was bad it wouldn't have booted to the point narator works.

Exactly what i would recommend doing from this point i'm not sure as i don't know exactly what the error message is.


Thanks.
