Hello, I was installed Kali on my virtual machine and everything seems good. When I turned on the machine, I was managed to do the installation with the accessibility mode which Kali added it. After the installation finishes, I cannot use Orca. When I try to install Orca with OCR, I can't hear something from Orca. What I need to do for solving this error? Any help will be apreciated.

There's probably a tool that will list the apps on her phone so she doesn't
have to manually type them, too.

Olusegun,
Never worry about sarcastic comments, because around here it is the home of
the sarcastic comments. If you can't take it don't dish it out we like to
say. So, no problem at all. Thanks for your input. It is appreciated.

Kay, oh, I'll SHAKE YOUR HANDS, just so you know I'm NOT AT WAR or trying to
be confrontational. That said, it's obvious that your daughter KEPT
GRABBING whatever apps were grabbable from the Play Store and wherever else
and installing these apps on her toy. Well, I don't know what apps she has
in that rather long list. I don't know what she CONSIDERS ABSOLUTELY USEFUL
and what she considers to be junk. She's the only one who can make such a
determination. For instance, I have nearly 180 apps on my DAILY DRIVER toy.
I don't use them all, but I am a tinkerer always TESTING APPS for
accessibility and usability as a blind individual. As such, if I wish to
DELETE SEVERAL APPS, I know which ones to KNOCK OUT OF THE BALLPARK without
hurting my toy.

Yes, her toy DOES HAVE AN SD CARD SLOT. When you said Galaxy7, I'm assuming
your daughter has the S7 series and this one does include the said slot.
Samsung brought it back after it made dismal sales of the S6 where it had
tried removing it. It has removed the SD CARD SLOT in the latest S21, many
of us are watching what the sales figures will be like in a few months.
Retaining the SD CARD SLOT was a good thing for Samsung, but may be the
conglomerate has uncovered other goodies and now feels comfortable throwing
it away on the S21.

I do hope this is somewhat helpful; as an aside, if you've read my posts,

Hello Kay. I found a Youtube video that goes straight to the core of what
your daughter is trying to do. This guy shows you where to go on the S7,
and shows you a lot of the places where unwanted or excess gigabytes can
hide. It sounds like the S7 does have a micro-SD card slot, and that you
can make your games and apps use the SD card for their data instead of her
phone. Check it out.

shelves of Walmart, Bestbuy, Microcenter and others. None of these stores
are available in your area? Amazon WILL BRING IT TO YOU, just let it know

A Galaxy question

Kay Malmquist
 

Hi all,
My daughter has a Galaxy 7 and it is a 64 GB phone.  She has 2 GB of space left and she is wondering what the best way to clear some of the stuff out might be.  Like cash and anything else you all can think of.  She has 20 GB of pictures and videos and she is working on backing some of them up and taking them out. but she knows since this phone is around 2 years old there has to be some junk she can eliminate.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks much.

Well, I am sad to know that,. These instructions were from the Lenovo
T Series of laptops. I looked this one up from the internet by

Although, i don't think you wouldn't have looked up online but request
you to look up the instructions for your particular model online
just in case.

Re: Odd Issue With VoiceOver On iPhone SE 2020

Shelly Kane
 

Mike:


This has been going on for at least 8 months or more.  When I connected my phone to my mom's car, whenever I would get in the car, my phone stops talking to me.  Voice over is gone and I can't do anything.  I can't text or anything because it connects to blue tooth automatically.  If I want to use my phone when I'm in her car, I have to disconnect from blue tooth before I get into the car.  It's very strange.  The only reason I have mine connected to her car is so I can have my music when I'm in there.

We had the same problem but, this is with my wife's phone being connected to the car's blutooth.  When connected to blutooth Siri will not read out / give
audio directions when you ask her for driving directions.
 
What happens is that the phone switches to the car stereo in the audio destination of Control Center and the audio destination option can't be accessed
unless the phone is playing something.  But, when the phone is playing something from a source other than  the iPhone option Voiceover can't be heard.
 
The only way the sound can be switched back to play through the iPhone is by someone sighted since Voiceover can't be heard while the sounds are assigned
to play through the car stereo, speaker or whatever the hell else it'll play through other than the iPhone.
 
Our solution is for my wife to turn off the iPhone's bluetooth if she's going to ask for driving directions when I'm not with her.  When I'm with her we
just use my iPhone since I don't have it connect to our vehicles bluetooth systems.
 
We spent an hour and a half with Apple accessibility over this the other day and they were perplexed as we were as why the iPhone now does this when it
didn't before.  We don't know which update in the iOS 14... screwed things up but, it most certainly did!  When I pointed out to the Apple accessibility
person what a safety hazard this is, people having to take their eyes off the road to look at the map on the damn Iphone, that's when she really started
seeing our point, especially when I told her if someone sues Apple because they had to take their eyes off the road to look at the phone.
 
 
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Group,

Originally, I had tried turning the phone on and off, but it did not
work. I was using the Tribbit Blue tooth Smart Speaker. I resolved the
issue itself by telling Siri to turn on VoiceOver and then turning on
the speaker. VoiceOver came clearly through the speaker in all
aspects. then I turned off the speaker and everything returned to
normal. It is as if the iPhone was in some sort of search mode for the
Tribbit and it had to sync up again in order to fully disconnect. that's
just my guess, but all seems well now. I tried turning the system on
and off and the speaker on and off and connecting and reconnecting with
no problem: go figure. Maybe it was a fluke of some sort and won't
happen again; or maybe if it does, at least I'll know how to deal with
it--weird beasts these new fangled electronics!

Hi Pablo,

 

No, I do not know any blind or low vision person who has made these cables.

These cables are so cheap these days, now that wireless is here in such a big way,  that I’m sure you could buy them  already made up for pennies a foot.

Evenanold dinosaur like my self,  has sent many meters of these to the recycle center.

You could probably find some at a recycle center.

Hello all,

 

I am wondering if, anyone here being totally blind has been able to install a RJ 45 adapters on a ethernet cable

I think that it might be very difficult. I guess that a tester could be needed to identify the cable colors. Nevertheless, I think that the worse part is placing the little cables on the adapter in the correct order without putting anyone on the wrong place.

Has anyone able to work on this?

Would you like to share your experience?
