Kerryann, you obviously can't endorse this website if they are useing
something you advise against.


Home network setup problem

Loy
 

I have spent several hours trying to network my 3 home computers. I have my Main computer, my wife's computer and a Laptop. I have enabled file and print sharing on all 3. I disabled password protector on all 3. Private network on all 3. My main computer sees laptop, my laptop sees main but asked for cridincials, which I don't know what cridincials it wants. And my wife's computer sees main but says there is an error when I click on main. My main reason to network is so I can print from all three to printer connected to main. It is not wireless but connects by USB.Running Windows 10 Pro 2004 all  3. Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong. 


Advice wanted

Kerryann Ifill
 

Good morning all:

I’vebeen asked to endorse a website and its accessibility features. They are planning to introduce one of those add on text to speech add ons which I advised against. My argument is that anyone or rather most people using the net and require such adaptive measures will already be using technology with which they are familiar and most of these add ons create issues and are usually inferior.

What are your thoughts?

Regards
Kerry

Hi Ron,

I encountered the captcha request when I deleted the Alexa app, to start anew bringing other Alexa online. I had no trouble understanding the series of numbers or entering the numbers. My problem was that the correct numbers entered wasn't recognized as being correct. After 7 attempts & frustration, I had my partner to enter the picture code for me. There has to be a simple to work with solution that websites & apps can use to make the log-in process less of a hassle for the blind & deaf-blindcommunity.

Hi Group,

I had to make a change in the Alexa App this morning. When I tried logging in, I was presented with a captcha request. There is an audio challenge, but it is garbled and I can't hear it well enough or type it quick enough to log in.

How has anyone else dealt with this issue? I have already complained to the Amazon Disability line and asked that in future releases of the app that this 2 level authentication be made optional upon installation.

Since you bought the computers from Kevin, did you call him and ask him to help you? I just now read this message. Pam.

Sorry I'm late to the conversation.  I use Facebook on my iPhone SE second generation which is the app and then I also use the computer occasionally.  I have Jaws 2020 and google chrome and I go to the mobile site as well because it's easier than the regular site.  The app is not mobie as far as I know and it's very easy.  Hope this helps.  I also forgot on the computer, I'm using Windows 10.

TerriLynne,

I do Facebook on three devices: the desktop, running Windows 7 and JAWS 2020; my iPhone running iOs 12 something; and my BrailleNote Touch Plus, where I run the Facebook app. On the computer, I use the mobile Facebook site rather than the "big" site, which I find to be cluttered. The desktop is my favorite way to do it; it's easiest to get to all the things I want. The other devices are mostly for when I'm away from the desktop, (or my husband has commandeered it to do genealogy)! The phone works fine if you just want to do a quick check, and the BrailleNote with the app   does some things very well (plus I like being able to do it "silently" using just Braille.)

HTH.

Accessible Email Marketing

Joe Orozco
 

Hi, does anyone have recommendations on accessible email marketing?
Mailerlite did not prove very accessible. I’m not having a ton of
success with MooSend, though much better than the former. I’ve also
started testing out MailChimp. I hear ConvertKit is supposed to be
good, though their pricing is a little rich for my blood. If anyone
has other suggestions, or suggestions on how to better work with the
listed services, please let me know. Thank you kindly in advance.

Hi Group,

I have a Victor Reader Second Generation Stream. I have lost the smaller of the two cables the one with the male USB micro connector and the female jack for inserting a USB Drive.

Are these devices commonly available on Amazon or some other site or do you have to get them from the over priced Humanware company itself?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Micro USB Cable Inquiry

 

I would try searching short cable for Victor reader stream second generation and that should bring up some results. It may be available cheaper from a different seller.
Hope this helps,

I found this link by the AFB:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKtAyaZhUhw ANd for office 2016
American foundation of the blind
If you put jaws, nvda, narrator, accessibility and than put
free tutorials for learning Win10 in youtube, videos do come up!

You can even include just the windows10 start menu in the mix, videos will come up. If you have a youtube to mp3 comverter, you can organize them for the needs of that student.

I think CathyAnne Murtha is still teaching a free windows 10 course or if not, I do not think it cost that much; she uses the zoom platform!
