Subject: [TechTalk] a question regarding playing DTB cartridges w/ gen 1 victor

Even though I thought I stated that I didn't want this format for my
next course Hadley sent me the course in DTB cartridge format. I have
an NLS player, but it is a lot easier to go through the
headings/sections of a course using my gen 1 victor reader. My
instructor said that there was a cord I could ask the library where I
got my player from for (I think I remember that right) but I was
wondering if there was a way I could do that without having to bother
them, or basically get results faster since it could take a while to
go that route.

Basically I have a cartridge of a digital talking book and I want to
be able to listen to it with my victor gen 1. If anyone has any ideas
I would greatly appreciate them.

thanks,
melissa

That's what I meant about using the application key on the desktop.  To perform the equivalent of right clicking with a mouse on a blank part of the desktop, if there is nothing selected, the application key does the same thing.

This needs to be clarified and I need to change or partly correct what I said.  The problem is that when you move using the virtual mouse, however your screen--reader defines it, unless you know how to do things most people don't, you can't find blank places on the desktop.  Usually, when you right click you are right clicking on something such as an icon, a a menu item, a character in a document such as a letter in a word, etc.  Unselecting everything on the desktop and using the context menu key is the same as right clicking a blank place on the desktop with a mouse or virtual mouse. While this can be done using generally unknown commands or procedures, it isn't necessary. 

 

I didn't know why you said not to right click.  I couldn't tell if you were saying don't right click after you use the context menu key or don't right click in general.  Now I know you mean not to right click instead of using the context menu.  But I didn't account for or discuss the question fully in my first message.

If you open the context menu with the context menu key, you are doing the same as right clicking but you are using a keyboard key.  Right clicking very often opens a context menu wherever you right click.  Using the context menu key in the same location does the same thing as right clicking in the same location.

Excellent, I'll grab them, just to keep them archived now that I have a new hd. I don't know all that much about the subject, but I understood that you could use the ultimate ISO to install that and the other versions below it, yes? As a matter of saving space, I was thinking of grabbing that one as well and using it to install professional, but I was unclear on how this install would work inside the PE. I know that you'd previously mentioned that you could use a utility to remove a file from the ISO to do this, but I couldn't recall the name of it.
Anyways, thanks bunches bruddah for the upload, your help is always super appreciated.
Take it easy. :)

Hey all,
I know that here not so long ago on list some downloads for the ISOs for Win7 were posted. I'd had most of the downloads that I wanted so didn't see a need to keep the links or messages. Early last week however, my external decided to crap out, resulting in the loss of the ISO and the backups for 7 that I used when I wanted to restore. I'm in the process of searching down the tool I used to register Windows on my OEM machine and also the drivers for it, but I can't seem to locate a decent place to grab 7pro.

If it'd be possible for someone to post up the link for it or where I might be able to look, I would be most grateful as I'd like to get my backup image recreated.
Thank you bunches and hope everyone is well.
Take care.

Most important is that you look at your needs and plan for purchasing

Hello,

I'm doing some pc upgrades, my new board went in to a new case and a
bunch of hardware got migrated over. The new board is an Asus M5A97 LE
R2.0, the case a Corsair Carbide 100. I'm needing some hardware
recommendations, if anyone has any of this, and could recommend a
reputable product, i'd appreciate it.

I'd like to know how one identifies the various PCI-e slots and what
each one does in terms of performance? I'm wondering where should I
put the graphics card, a second USB card and a bluetooth card are
coming in?

My primary system drive is the 840pro, which I've been told don't
defrag and don't optimize. I was running a defrag on my other drives,
both of which are standard spindle drives, and got the message that
the ssd was not performing optimally and needed to be optimized.
What's up with this?

Also, on drives when accessing one of my spindle drives, one is a 3TB
the other is a 4TB, both SATA 6GBPS as is the ssd, when atempting to
access some directories sometimes access times are slow, other times I
get like 80 items, when in reality there are 300. A few moments later
the rest show up, just enough to be annoying. The spindle drives are
defragged. Could this be an indexing issue? It was also suggested that
the spindle drives might have been asleep when access was atempted. I
was not thinking this was doable.

For hardware anyone have any recommendations for an internal PCI-E
card with an internal 19-pin header? My front two ports are USB3 and
they have such a connector that the board does not have, a separate
card is needed.

Also, does anyone have or have used a 3.5 to 5.25 internal adapter?
Two pieces of hardware came out of my old case, they were in 3.5 in
bays, which this machine only has one. I need to put one of the
devices in to a 5.25 in bay.

Thanks.
Dave.

Hi Michael,
Pasting the Audex description below:
Audex is redefining accessibility for your android devices.
It gives you many smart features such as: Smart Labeling System,
Audible Access etc.
What is Smart Labeling System (SLS)?
Audex includes a Smart Labeling System, Which automaticly labels all
the unlabeled controls throughout your apps and device.
This feature is very useful and improves the accessibility of
unlabeled controls by 90 - 95%.
Audex also provides audible feedback for many events such as:
• Clicking,
• Touching/Hovering,
• Swiping on the screen,
• Opening/closing the windows and menus,
• Scrolling,
• Performing the gestures,
• Starting/Finishing the gestures,
• Long pressing,
• Charger Plugging/Unplugging,
• Screen On/Off etc.
Different-different sounds are associated with every event out there.
This app can be used in conjunction with/without any screen reader such as:
• Google Talkback,
• Shine Plus,
• Samsung Voice Assistant etc.
This app can be very useful for screen reader users.
You can customize the sounds for every event along with toggling them.
App has 6 sound schemes bundled with it, 2 out of them are fully customizable.
There’s a ‘shared’ sound scheme which allows users to share the sound
schemes with others on demand if required.
Audex is very responsive and very low on memory, so, no need to worry either.
Note for screen reader users:
For optimal experience, please turn off the sound feedback of your
screen reader. (Don’t Worry, you’ll not regret it, it has many sounds,
which are in
fact better than talkback etc.).
To use Audex:
• Go to Settings,
• Then Accessibility,
• Then Audex,
• Click the button which is labeled as ‘off’,
• Click ‘OK’ on displayed warning/alert.

You are now ready to enjoy the Audible Access and Navigation
throughout your device!
Many more features are on the way!

Hi David,

 

Yes, don’t be afraid to purchase the Fire TV Stick. It is really accessible and easy to use. The latest version has the Alexa remote which is great because as you may know, you can ask her to do many things for you that are not associated with the TV. One tip, check the accessibility of any app before you decide to start using it, some of the apps that you will see when browsing the Fire Stick are not accessible. The Amazon accessibility support line should be able to help you with this. There is a Fire TV support group that they can connect you with.

Hi Mike!

I am very impressed over what you just said. My wife and I are really thinking about getting the Fire Stick and I am very encouraged about how accessible you say it is.

That is awesome!

Hi Pamela,

 

I do not own a Roku. When I made the decision to go with the Amazon Fire TV Stick, I had looked at the Fire Stick, the Roku, and the Apple TV. The Apple TV is Very accessible, but also expensive, the Roku does have a model that is accessible now, but not all models are. My brother has had a Roku for a number of years, and when at his house I could never use it myself. The Amazon Fire TV Stick I like very much. It only costs $40, and it is very accessible straight out of the box. Once you unbox it and set it up by plugging it into an open HDMI port on your TV, you press one button on the remote to pair it to the Stick, and when that completes, you press and hold 2 other buttons to turn it's screen reader "Voice View" on. Once it is one, it stays on until you turn it off by pressing the same buttons. So far, I only have Amazon Prime Video and Netfilx to watch, but that is more content than I will ever need. If I can help further, please respond.

 

Michael

Hi Michael,

 

Are you using the Roku?  I had been under the impression that it wasn't very accessible.  Is that no longer the case?

 

Pam

Hi Shirley,

 

The ROKU is a video streaming device that plugs into a HDMI port on your TV. It is very similar to the Amazon Fire TV or the Apple TV. It will come with some apps on it such as Netflix, Hulu, or HBO GO. You will also have the ability to download specific apps that you may want. It is required that you subscribe to these services, but getting 3 or 4 of these is cheaper than cable, and many people are "cutting the cord" these days. The ROKU and the other devices can be picked up at most any electronics store i.e. Best Buy, and of course the Amazon and the Apple devices are available straight from their respective websites. I use the Amazon Fire TV Stick, it is inexpensive and if you are a prime member, you can stream the Amazon Prime Video and the Prime Music through this device. Hth.
