Hi,
Maybe about the same. I know it has folder A, folder b, and then there is podcasts, music, and maybe another? I open mine frequently but I am so used to it I forget, haha
It is a great recorder and I have had mine since it came out in 2011. I use it for many purposes. It even reads audible books.

Hi Howard,

I sent you a zipped up executable off list with a exe extension.  I am wondering if your anti virus is squashing everything.  Path Copy is a simple file explorer extension that is quite accessible and very useful.

So I need to google some part of Inno Setup script to find out how to execute it.  I don't know what Inno is but maybe google will tell me.

Hi, when you locate the manual in the folder once you plug the recorder into your laptop via USB or your phone I guess, you can then download it into your pc or phone ….or copy the manual as a file and then paste it into your pc ...

How would I copy this manual? Do I connect it to the computer, and do a cut-and-paste?

Hi,
Yes, you can use the recorder to record your music, guitar etc
There is within the recorder a manual which is accessible. You can also copy it into your pc or phone as well just to have another copy to read.

Hope you are all well and coming to the end of the lockdowns.

I am Audrey Joy in NYC.

I have 2 questions:
1. A friend just gifted me a brand-new Olympus DM620. Does anyone have a manual in braille, or other accessible format? Can I use it for music, although it says "voice recorder" on the box?

2. Does the BlShell phone have any braille functionality, as the IPhones do?

Looking forward to your replies.

Have a wonderful day and stay well.

Re: An Old Program

Howard Traxler
 

Thanks Mike, but this one is called Setup.iss..  When I press enter on it, it opens an "open with" box and I don't have a clue what to choose.  Maybe I'll try notepad and just see what's in there.

By the way, I have one of those MSI installer programs (NetLogger) that I want to put on my XP machine, but it says my installer service it too old.  Maybe I'll have to find a NetLogger installer that's an .exe file.

Hi Audrey. I have had pretty good luck recording music with my DM-620, both
with the unit's microphones and through the microphone jack which also
serves as a line-in. The DM-620 has 3 microphones though, and if you leave
the center mic turned on, I seem to get more rumble in my recordings and
they just sound kind of funky and out of phase. You can turn it off under
"Microphone select."

Hi all,

Don't know about the Olympus recorder. The Blind Shell phone is not a
smart phone, so doesn't have the capability of connecting to a braille
device. Look at the Smart Vision2 from Irie-AT.

Re: 2 questions: Olympus dm620; Blind ShellPhone

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your reply.

How would I copy this manual? Do I connect it to the computer, and do a cut-and-paste?

Thanks again for any help.

Audrey

Hi,
Yes, you can use the recorder to record your music, guitar etc
There is within the recorder a manual which is accessible. You can also copy it into your pc or phone as well just to have another copy to read.

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well and coming to the end of the lockdowns.

I am Audrey Joy in NYC.

I have 2 questions:
1. A friend just gifted me a brand-new Olympus DM620. Does anyone have a manual in braille, or other accessible format? Can I use it for music, although it says "voice recorder" on the box?

2. Does the BlShell phone have any braille functionality, as the IPhones do?

Looking forward to your replies.

Have a wonderful day and stay well.

Audrey

VPN's

Melissa Hambleton
 

Are there other VPN’s beside Avast SecureLine that are accessible with JAWS?

 

When I was reading up on Secureline VPN, it mentioned there could be trouble sending email with Outlook which, is the only email program I use and it may experience trouble browsing the internet which, I do all the time and slow speeds with streaming services like Netflix which, I use all the time. There are trouble fixes for these I think but, if there are other accessible VPN’s without all these issues, I’d like to look into them.

 

Thanks,

Melissa

 


Re: An Old Program

Howard Traxler
 

But it seems like it should be installed before it can be used.  I unzipped the archive and looked at the folder it created.  In there was a subfolder called installer but the only file in the installer subfolder had an .iss extention; not executable.  Dont know how to install.

There is a Windows version of such a program that is far superior to the old DOS based program or perhaps Windows 98 program you are referring to.  It is free and is called Path Copy and it's address is
https://pathcopycopy.github.io/
This program runs from the context menu and you can do a number of things with it. It copies long name, short name, long path, short path. It can copy the exact file names of all the files in a folder to clipboard and you can then paste the list into a text editor and save it anywhere you want.

This is what I use to make text delimited databases for all my music/movies/books.

Using the MLB audio app.

Barb O'Connor
 

Good afternoon listers. I think someone on this list was discussing the new MLB audio app that has the latest update that allows us to listen to archive games. Is anybody getting this to work successfully? I try to go into the calendar and choose games but it doesn’t allow me to do that. If I select June, it throws me right back into January. What am I missing doing this to try to listen to games? It doesn’t look like it’s working with Alexa, either.

Any help Would be greatly appreciated.

Re: titling notes recorded on Victor reader

I once tried naming my notes on the Stream and when I put the card back, I too found there were no notes in that folder but they had been moved to either the music folder or the podcast folder. Not sure why this happened but since they are mp3 files I suppose the Stream thought they belonged elsewhere. LOL!

Not at all sure of what you might have done to make your notes no longer show. Are the extensions of these files still showing?

I just tried putting my sd card in the correct slot on my computer and changing the names of my audio notes that way but when I put the card back in my Victor it told me there were no notes at all although they're still there.

Unless somebody can tell me what I might've done wrong, if I have to use the Humanware companion I'm going to need some instructions because I've never used it.

Hi Chris,

No Humanware Companiln required.
I just use the standard windows keystrokes to select drives,folders, and files.
Then I use the f2 key to rename the selected file.

Online Learning

Hi. I am a blind it student doing certificate iv networking from http://www.upskilled.edu.au. And have a assus vivo book x 540 uar laptop. Running windows 10 64 bit 2004 and jaws 2020 and also nvda 2020. Now. Need to do a online assessment. And a external firm called heropa, has a web tool. well does not load, or takes forever to load, is totally unuser friendly and not accessible. Unlabeled graphics, unlabeled buttons, menus buried within sub menus, etc, and no keyboard short cuts, and some of the labelled buttons, does nothing. So, do have a remote server given to me via heropa. For doing a assessment where I have to install windows as a virtual network or install it, configure it, add folders, add desktop shortu cuts, and desktop icons to the task bar, set up and configure a printer. So. The firm when I did login and have a free trial of jaws remote . they have windows server 2016 data centre, and maybe did ask my main trainer Charles lang-ashe, about maybe reserving a spare particion, then could do the assessment that way. If not, what accessible free online servers, or virtual machines or cloud are there. I know there’s no e-mail verification for Microsoft azure. And when I did try to sign up as a student, last year, and tried the call back feature. Because I am on the nbn and have a home landline phone, says does not support voip phones. Don’t have a mobile phone. So was able to sign up for amazon web services, seems accessible, but not able to create any virtual machines, when I selected windows server, said the operation could not be completed or not available. So, what other cloud services and also other online free accessible online remote servers. For blind people. Who cannot see and need to do this. Any ideas, or suggestions. Got till tuesday  as this is a long weekend here in Australia.

And so need some ideas.

Thanks.

Howard, no, you use your context key. Navigate to a directory and hit your context key and look for the pathcopy pulldown.

Hi Troy. Did you put the card back in the computer and check that the MP3 extensions are still there?

When I had the card plugged into the card slot on my laptop the mp3 extention was showing, and all I changed was the 00000000001 part and left the .mp3 intact. When I plugged the card back into the Victor and went to the notes section it reported 0 notes. There should've been 2.
