It that depends on what I have, please help by asking the questions that would let you help me do this.

You can get some, but not all Facebook videos with Pontes Media Downloader. Let us know if you need to get the ones PMD can't and I will post a procedure that has worked for me, even with videos in the embeded player.

I went on line today and searched for a solution, I came across instructions for getting an access code that you use instead of your password for some clients. But I kept going in circles on their site trying to get the access code.  I am going to try to see if I can talk to a support person to explain this to me to see if this is the solution.

I have been having the same problems, we have spent many hours with it for the last three years.  Finally, one of the technicians told me that at&t, Pac Bell, (by any other name with that company) does not support Outlook Express-(W.L.M.). 
 
Also, I have one of those computers from Computers for the Blind, with Windows seven, and now it is not supported.  Before I could purchase one with W-10 on it, we were all placed on lockdown, smile.  And, let me tell you it is not easy to learn.  Now I have to try to learn W-ten. 
 
The multiple copies of emails finally stopped, but now I am not receiving all my mail.  When I go on line there are 19,000 emails in my in-box.  Go figure!  I don’t know what to do either. 
Any suggestions?

There is also a dedicated Kindle discussion group for visually impaired users. To subscribe, send an email to

vi-kindle-request@...

in the subject type

subscribe

The majority of users seem to discuss the Fire tablets as opposed to the dedicated Kindle e-readers.

When my time allows I try and answer the questions that I can but there are others who I'm sure will be more than willing to assist you. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

I'm not sure who moderates the list.

Hi all,

Yes, the Stratus has a formatting option which should work. If it doesn't, then follow the instructions in the previous message in the thread.

Re: how to format SD cards larger than 32GB, please

Greg Daniel <gdaniel@...>
 

Thank you for your helpful information.  I searched through the onboard user's manual on my own Humanware Stratus, but of course found everything under the sun except the information for which I was searching.  the reason for my assuming that the SD card had to be specially formatted is that every higher-capacity card that I've seen for sale, the company volunteers to format it for use for reading digital books.

"Start" button. A window pops up to warn you that all data on the drive will
be lost. Click "OK" to format the drive. Formatting with this tool is much
quicker than the command line method. One thing to note here: you'll need to
close any open File Explorer windows before you format the drive. If you
don't, the tool will interpret the drive as being used by another app and
formatting will fail. If this happens to you, just close the File Explorer
windows and try again. No need to relaunch the tool or anything.

Hi everyone,

A friend of mine has a Humanware Stratus V12M, and has an SD card whose
capacity she suspects is larger than 32GB.  While I know that larger SD
cards must be formatted differently than their smaller brethren, I have no
idea how to format them using Windows 10 and JAWS.

Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated.

Re: computer not recognizing braille printer

Monte Single
 

You have to set up the printer, probably, under the menus in the braille translation software you downloaded.

In these menus you should set things like printer type, in this case it is probably “generic text”.

Also you  have to set things like line length, number of characters per line, number of lines per page, single or double spacing, ets..

I have recently purchase a Braille Blazer printer. I have connected it to my desktop computer and downloaded the Braille translation program from APH.
