Re: Google Assistant on the GoFlip 3

Gene
 

Do you hae a data plan?  If you only have a talk and text plan, it won't work.  Also, you don't just hold the ok button. 
Open the Google assistant.  I want to make sure you know about that.  I wrote about it a number of days ago but whether it was to you and on this list, I can't be sure.
When you are on the home screen, press the left arrow once.  You should hear maps spoken.
Up arrow once to assistant.  Press ok.
Wait until you hear the sound and feel the vibration that tells you the assistant is opened.  Then press ok and hold it.  I think you only need to hold it for perhaps half a second but if that isn't long enough, hold it a little longer.
I don't know what you are asking or telling the assistant so I don't know if the assistant will do whtever you are trying.
I'll answer further questions but I'll wait to see what you say or what you report happens.
 
I haven't discussed using the assistant to text in this message and because there are two basic ways of doing this, I'll look at the ways again when you want to know how to do it.

Hey all,

How long do you need to hold down the ok  button before   you know google is listening/ is there some way to know?

I’ve tried 4 and 5  seconds or even 2 but no dice.

I’m beginning to think I shouldn’t have bought this phone.

thunderbird updating automatically

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,


How do I keep thunderbird from updating automatically? I was briefly updated to version 78 something and when I looked under tools and options there was a radio button for download but let me decide to update. That's what I want but now that I've uninstalled 78 and went back and installed a version of 68 that I have I can't find that option.


Thanks.

Re: KaiOS Algotel Go Flip3

Gene
 

I haven't found a way to get that information anywhere in the interface.  While I suspect it could be gotten somehow, I suspect it would take some sort of special command.  I doubt it is sent to the screen in accessible form.

I went to  the T-mobile store and the guy there was great! All of my contacts are  now in  my phone and I have a a KaiOS account.

Readout has been turned on again.

There is no easy way to check your network strength or battery without going into settings is there?

I can’t ask the assistant this info I tried.

Talking Battery Chargers

Steve Matzura
 

Does such a thing still exist? I have one I bought from APH years ago. It was one of the last ones they had, and it speaks in Spanish, which gave me a quick lesson in certain technical terms I never knew before (LOL). It does a fine job, but I'd like a second unit of similar kind--something  that can analyze a battery similarly to how the modern-day PowerX chargers do, and also be able to select each cell's charge type--trickle, drain and fill, etc., also like the PowerX's do. Are there any such devices these days with speech output, or I'd even take Bluetooth connectivity if the iOS application is usable.

Hi all,
I have a podcast feed that used to download the weekly presentation on Monday nights.
The feed I have hasn't refreshed for a couple of months.
Wondering if someone can send the new feed or let me know if the weekly tech talk shows are still available as a podcast download?
TIA.

SQUARE CASHAPP: A QUESTION OR TWO

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Hello All:

I'm hoping that any number of us in the House use the Cash App from Square.
I have an issue that I can't seem to resolve. Here's the scenario:

I was trying to MAKE A PAYMENT to someone using CashApp. I tapped on the
Pay Button, entered the recipient's info, and, when it was time to tap on
the Pay Button to send it through, a message in the app window stated that I
had not sent funds to the said individual before; it then asked if I'd like
to add the individual to My Contacts. I tapped on YES hoping everything
would be good to go; no dice. Now here are my questions:

1. Using the CashApp, can one only send/transfer funds to people in one's
contacts?

2. Does anyone know a good contact E-mail address for CashApp's tech
support? I didn't find one either online or in the app.

In general, I don't KEEP ANY CONTACTS on any of my toys. Anyhow, I look
forward to reading your thoughts, much thanks for all help.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

Hi all,


I'm trying to pin 2 versions of jaws to my taskbar in the latest version of windows 10 and I'm having trouble.


The instructions on google say to highlight what you want to pin and
right click it and go to more and then to pin to taskbar, and I'm using
the right mouse button to right click but when I tried it yesterday I
was constantly getting the wrong thing pinned although I knew I was
highlighted on jaws to start, then as I'm trying it this morning
something totally different is happening and the same menu isn't even
opening up when I right click. What am I missing? I've done this
successfully before although it wasn't with the most updated version of
windows 10.


Thanks.

A right click or Shift+F10 is one of the same things. just in case,
right click is ot working.

episode 11 of blind android users is now ready for you to listen.

 

Thank you for joining us on Episode 11.

In this episode, we touched a little bit more on Android 12,
especially on the fact that, the two-finger hold-down to enable
accessibility upon booting up the phone has been removed, leaving only
the two-volume key hold-down.
This is a review of android 12 after using for 2 days.
We were also delighted to report that Eloquence still works on the
Android 12 Developer Preview 1 and all the apps that I, Warren has on
my phone, including KNFB reader, surprisingly work.
We also touched on the fact that in Android 12, for those who rely on
magnification, there is now an option to only magnify portions of the
screen or a given area on the screen.
We then did a short demo of KNFB reader which surprisingly works on
android 12 dp1.
Then for the app of the week section, we did a demo about National
Park Service App (NPS)
this app is only useful for people in the USA.
About magnification, our guest, Pete Torking from the UK, demonstrated
Keypass, a password management app and in the process, mentioned other
password management apps, including sites that would let you know if
one of your passwords have been compromised.
when Pete did a demonstration of keypass and other apps, you will not
hear talkback as he uses magnification.
But he has given a detailed step by step description of what you should do.
We will do a demo of these apps with talkback shortly.
The conversation also touched on data breach sites that would let you
know if your email is out there with your passwords and those sites
are:

"Have I Been Pwned" from:
https://haveibeenpwned.com/
"Breach Directory" from:
https://breachdirectory.tk/
Pete then proceeded to tell us about his Android Journey story.

It was a joy having Pete and as always, we would love for you guys to
come on live or via a recording and tell us your Android Journey
stories.

For questions, suggestions or comments, send us mail at:
contactus@blindandroidusers.com
To join our mailing list, send those "join requests" to:

If you have a recorded Android Journey story and want to share that
with our listeners, then send those stories to:

Thanks Gene. Since I found out I had to have the reinstall done I
started thinking about the portable thunderbird because I lost my entire
address book and will have to rebuild it slowly as messages come in
since I don't remember most of the addresses I had. As you said if I had
been using portable thunderbird all along it would've saved me part of
the headache of reinstalling some of the programs that I'm now having to

Blind Android Users podcast team apologizes for the shortterm unavailability of episode 10, lets welcome android 12 due to false copywrite clames filed by 2 individuals wanting to distroy the community

 

Dear friends,
first of all, we dont like to bring such things to the community but
we thought as members of the community you all should know what is
going on.
we are writing to apologize to those of you who have noted the missing
episode 10 of our podcast that became unavailable on Sunday, 21.

2 individuals who are not happy that our podcast has following, false
filed a report with our podcast host, claiming that our podcast has
infringed on their intellectual property.
Our host, who fell for their claim, took immediate action, pulling
down the episode.

These very same individuals have been fighting tooth and nail to
destroy, not only our podcast but our mailing list ever since we
started and this unrelenting effort, finally paid off for them when an
episode of ours got taken down.

I am however, delighted to report that we reached out to our host and
not only is the episode back on, but they have reinstated it to the
date that it was posted--Feb. 19.
as the clame was fraudulent

Again, I want to thank you all for sticking it out with us and it's a
shame that it is our own blind people who are doing everything
possible to destroy another effort from another group of people who
like themselves, are also blind!

I believe that there's room for all of us to do what we want to do as
we serve our blind communities, but there's absolutely no reason,
whatsoever, for another blind group, bent at destroying the efforts of
others, in the quest of wanting to be the only podcast for the blind.
This cannot be, and anyone with a good conscience will see this for what it is.

I am not asking you folks to leave their group or anything like that,
rather, I leave it to you to come to your own conclusion as to whether
or not, this is the type of group that you would like to be part of--a
group that is bent on destroying the very effort that is intended on
helping the very same blind communities that we all are serving.

Again, my apologies for the little detraction that led to the
interruption of our last episode.
the episode can now be found at
www.blindandroidusers.com
