Re: Another question regarding Focus 14 Braille unit

Teresa Arroyo Llosa
 

Hello Nancy,

When they tell you to press chord + dot 8, it means you have to press space bar and the eight dot key on the right. Chord means the space bar.

If you need more explanations, just shout away.

I have a 44 cell focus, so I think I could give you a hand. I'd advise you to get an appropriate USB cable because even though you have your Focus paired through blue tuth, the battery will -as far as I remember- still run down.

I hope this helps.

Teresa Arroyo

Asunto: [TechTalk] Another question regarding Focus 14 Braille unit

I purchased a Focus 14 braille display. Of course it was used, and all I got was the display. No usb cable, or AC charger. The battery only runs the unit in blue tooth paring. I have a Mac Mini, and it works okay with my computer. The only exception is that I can’t get it out of eight dot setting. I looked in the manual and the toggle to turn eight dot on and off is eight cord. I think that eight cord means all the keys 1 through eight with the space bar. But all it doesn’t change the setting. The keys are numbered 1 2 3 and 7 on the left top of the unit and then 4 5 6 and eight on the right top of the unit. The space bar is below the braille display. I tried it without the space bar, and no changes. There is a power on and off button on the left hand side of the machine, but the keys don’t work in this setting. When the unit is connected to a computer, the computer powers the display. Any suggestions would be helpful. The instructions did state that it would function differently with a third party computer. I’m sure they meant a Mac. Freedom Scientific doesn’t support this unit anymore.
Thanks.

Removing Old Credit Cards from Amazon

Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
The subject line just about says it all!  Has anyone found or know a way to remove credit cards from their credit cards list with Amazon?  I have 3 credit cards that need to be removed and I can't find any option to remove, only to add a credit card.  I had Amazon disability on the phone last night for about 20 minutes before the call dropped from their end or, they hung up because they couldn't help.  I didn't even get an email from their disability department asking me to rate the agent, I wonder why?!  LOL 
 
If anyone has a solution for removing credit cards I would, as well as many others, sure like to know about it!  All help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks mooy moocho.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Vicky,

The best sounding one I've found is the one we decided to sell on our
site but like I said I don't know much about hearing aids. Apparently
some hearing aids will pair just fine with this BT transmitter, while
some customers have reported that it didn't work with their particular
hearing aids.

I"m referring to the one below which is portable and can be connected
via USB to a computer or any other device via a headphone jack. When
used with a computer it allows one to use a headset for making calls
with Skype, Google Voice, etc, but I don't know that hearing aids have
built-in mics or not for this purpose. Many use this for their Victor
Reader Streams for wireless listening. Here's the link:

The portable Swivel Jack RTX Bluetooth transmitter/receiver is just
$44.99! Perfect for making your Victor Stream or any device with a
headphone jack, able to connect to your Bluetooth headphones or
speaker! Connect it to your computer's USB port and have it come
through your Bluetooth headset or speaker! The receiver side speaks
everything from power on through power off! It boasts a range of 100
Feet and much more...

I don't know very much about hearing aids so can't comment about them but

I
do know a little about Bluetooth transmitters.

Yes, there are many different types and the quality varies. Some are mono
while others transmit in stereo. Some are very clear while others sound
crackly, hiss, or make other noises. Some are very short range while
others
will transmit over much longer distances.

Gene, I've begun to suspect that many people don't know that they can
issue commands, move on, stop reading, etc, when using their computers
and a screen reader. I've been on the hone with some and they let
their screen reader read on and on before moving on to the next thing
they want to do. Some have replied with a dumbfounded "what?" when
I've asked them to stop the screen reader from blabbing on and on. I
guess it's one of those basics they either weren't taught or they
missed when they were taught to use their screen reader. It's very
inefficient and does waste their time.

Stay safe,
