Course Creation Time?

So I just sent this email to my mailing list, and I thought that some of you might be interested as well.

Shoot me a message off list if you have any questions, I am definitely not someone you can't get a hold of.

Subject: Course Creation Time?

Back in October 2015 I released a course called WordPress with a blind guy.

This was an amazing course in my opinion, because it gave people the opportunity to walk through the process of setting up their own WordPress site from the ground up, and you could take that knowledge and build your own site.

The negative aspect of this is that hardly anyone went through the training even though they purchased it, to apply the knowledge to building their own site.

But that's okay, that's what happens!

Thinking back on it, I think two things effected this.

#1, people didn’t value the course as it wasn’t a very high investment,

And

#2, I didn’t organize the information very easy.

I beat myself up over this fact for a while, and honestly think it had a lot to do with my delivery.

So I've been researching platforms that can make putting my course together easier, both for myself as the course administrator and for students.

I'm 98% sure I found the solution, at least from my initial findings.

Now will issues come up in the future? possibly… But right now it looks like the system that I'm using will be an amazing fit to allow me the opportunity to produce a better course for you, as well as to allow me to provide more courses that you can take.

Hears the thing though!

I'm in the process of migrating the data from my old course to this new platform, going to give anyone who purchased a coupon so they can get the new course for free, and am adding in spots where I feel like I could have done better. There's a new modular

But the thing is is I know I don't know everything, and you know some things that I don't know and others don’t know as well. I'd like to give you the opportunity to "watch over my shoulder", as I bring this old content into the new system, and you learn how to build out a course.

Does this sound like something you would be interested in?

You'll have the knowledge by the end of these videos to build your own course, and I'll share with you information about pricing as well so hopefully you don't undervalue yourself like I did.

You'll receive two emails per week, Fridays and Mondays, and these emails will be videos of me showing you things I'm performing in this new platform so you can build your courses alongside of me.

You also have email access to me so I can answer your questions within 12 hours.

Finally, when I do release courses in the future, you will get an exclusive 25% discount.

Interested? This nominal investment of $67 is only available until Friday morning.

>>> CLICK NOW TO SAVE YOUR SPOT

NOTE: shoot me an email before you purchase if you are a Wordpress With A Blind guy beta member, and I’ll give you your access at $50.

I’ll probably remind you about it tomorrow.

Hi,

 

Has anyone used netgear geeny? Apparently there is an ap and desktop client to use so you can set parental controls and perform other actions.

The last time I used this was don’t remember actually, but I do remember it was not accessible. Thoughts on netgear geeny and how to use it will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Reading documents in Word.

I am not sure what it is, but reading Word files can be problematic when a file is blocked. I usually check the file properties to make sure.

Re: Questions about Gmail

James Bentley <bentleyj1952@...>
 

OK, I turned on all emails under WLM’s Quick Views menu.  That seems to look at all emails for all accounts.
 
After I  looked a bit more, I found that Gmail has its own all emails or, maybe it was called all messages folder, but, it appeared to only show only all of the Gmail messages.  This does appear to be doing what I wanted.  So did your suggestion but the WLM all emails seems to be using more computer resources.  Either way, I think I now have the solution to my problem.
 
Matt, many thanks,

Hi everyone,

 

I am working on getting ajusted to Gmail.  I have a few questions.

 

Why are messages that should have all shown up in my Inbox showing up in 2

other places.  These messages are showing up in the spam and Important messages folder instead of going to my Inbox.

 

Is there any way to tell Gmail that I am a big boy and I know best where I want my messages to go.  In other words, I want every thing to go to my inbox.  I will move or set up filters or hit the delete key but just let every thing go to my Inbox.

 

Thanks for any help,

Hi Ann,
With NVDA, as you navigate around your document, NVDA will read "Has comment" when it encounters text with a comment (as long as you've got "report comments" checked in the NVDA's document formatting dialog - NVDA+CONTROL+D) - to read the comment itself press NVDA+ALT+C.
There is a good section on this in the upcoming Microsoft Word with NVDA training module which will soon be available from NV Access.

Re: d drive on my pc

UEFI is a replacement for the traditional legacy BIOS, and like the BIOS it cannot be accessed with speech at this time.  The only thing this feature allows you to do which is new is reboot into the UEFI settings from within Windows.  It does not make the UEFI settings accessible with speech.

So you loose speech with that but not a reset? As I did not loose speech with the reset till it rebooted. Then when it got finished doing it thing and restarted a couple of times then I was able to bring up narrator.  Of course one is a reset of windows and the other is getting into the bios. Sure wish MS could make this accessible the BIOS as well with narrator.

If you proceed, you won't have access to speech.  You will need sighted assistance.  As long as you don't start pressing random keys, nothing dramatic will happen.  You can always just turn the machine off with the power button and restart.

Note this article does not clarify a significant point.  These instructions will probably only work on a machine which supports UEFI.  This should be any machine which came with Windows 8 or 10 preinstalled.  Depending on the age of your machine or if it came with Windows 7 preinstalled, it may or may not support UEFI.

Well my is not hidden or does it have a drive letter to it. But don’t know what it is even doing there. As I run W10 only now and had deleted all the partitions and just made one.  After I did that and put W10 pro on the pC it was not there then I ended up having to do a reset of W10 and kept my files and that did not solve my problem as well then did a reset and not saved my files and wiped the W10 drive and put W10 back on it. Thru the reset and this is when it showed back up so don’t know if W10 has created a restore partition or what.  By the way it only shows up in disk management . but everything is working fine except for my power on password that W10 has disable . I did not think it could do that but It seems it can. Also you can now get to the bios from within W10 and it is saying it is accessible.I will give a link to this and the steps as well.

 

I think there is a lot of thing we don’t yet know about W10. That is getting to the bios after you get there I think you still have to have visual help.

 

http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/access-bios-windows-10

 

To access your BIOS on a Windows 10 PC, you must follow these steps:

 

1.

Navigate to settings. ...

 

2.

Select Update & security.

 

3.

Select Recovery from the left menu.

 

4.

Click Restart Now under Advanced startup. ...

5.

Sometimes yes, but there are times when a drive letter may be intentionally or unintentionally assigned to the partition.  Although usually when this occurs, you can see at least some of the files and folders.

Also, it is very unlikely that any recovery partition would be at least 280 GB in size.  Recovery partitions are usually much smaller since they only contain the operating system and any manufacturer included drivers/software.

I believe you mean the MFT AKA Master File Table.  And normally the drive/partition properties will always show you the correct amount of used space even if files are hidden.  Hiding drive space from the MFT generally means either corruption or some kind of malware.  You would not use such questionable techniques on a recovery partition.

Not likely if the drive/partition is not displaying any files and the properties only show 172 MB used which is simply space being used by the file system itself.

Subject: [TechTalk] Questions about Gmail

 

Hi everyone,

 

I am working on getting ajusted to Gmail.  I have a few questions.

 

Why are messages that should have all shown up in my Inbox showing up in 2

other places.  These messages are showing up in the spam and Important messages folder instead of going to my Inbox.

 

Is there any way to tell Gmail that I am a big boy and I know best where I want my messages to go.  In other words, I want every thing to go to my inbox.  I will move or set up filters or hit the delete key but just let every thing go to my Inbox.

 

Thanks for any help,

 

James B

So you loose speech with that but not a reset? As I did not loose speech with the reset till it rebooted. Then when it got finished doing it thing and restarted a couple of times then I was able to bring up narrator.  Of course one is a reset of windows and the other is getting into the bios. Sure wish MS could make this accessible the BIOS as well with narrator.

If you proceed, you won't have access to speech.  You will need sighted assistance.  As long as you don't start pressing random keys, nothing dramatic will happen.  You can always just turn the machine off with the power button and restart.

Have not tried it but part of the way sort of scared.  I got to the restart button but stopped there. So don’t know if I could get to the other steps or not. As sort of in fear of what would happen after I clicked on start.

Well my is not hidden or does it have a drive letter to it. But don’t know what it is even doing there. As I run W10 only now and had deleted all the partitions and just made one.  After I did that and put W10 pro on the pC it was not there then I ended up having to do a reset of W10 and kept my files and that did not solve my problem as well then did a reset and not saved my files and wiped the W10 drive and put W10 back on it. Thru the reset and this is when it showed back up so don’t know if W10 has created a restore partition or what.  By the way it only shows up in disk management . but everything is working fine except for my power on password that W10 has disable . I did not think it could do that but It seems it can. Also you can now get to the bios from within W10 and it is saying it is accessible.I will give a link to this and the steps as well.

 

I think there is a lot of thing we don’t yet know about W10. That is getting to the bios after you get there I think you still have to have visual help.

Also, it is very unlikely that any recovery partition would be at least 280 GB in size.  Recovery partitions are usually much smaller since they only contain the operating system and any manufacturer included drivers/software.

I believe you mean the MFT AKA Master File Table.  And normally the drive/partition properties will always show you the correct amount of used space even if files are hidden.  Hiding drive space from the MFT generally means either corruption or some kind of malware.  You would not use such questionable techniques on a recovery partition.

Well my is not hidden or does it have a drive letter to it. But don’t know what it is even doing there. As I run W10 only now and had deleted all the partitions and just made one.  After I did that and put W10 pro on the pC it was not there then I ended up having to do a reset of W10 and kept my files and that did not solve my problem as well then did a reset and not saved my files and wiped the W10 drive and put W10 back on it. Thru the reset and this is when it showed back up so don’t know if W10 has created a restore partition or what.  By the way it only shows up in disk management . but everything is working fine except for my power on password that W10 has disable . I did not think it could do that but It seems it can. Also you can now get to the bios from within W10 and it is saying it is accessible.I will give a link to this and the steps as well.

 

I think there is a lot of thing we don’t yet know about W10. That is getting to the bios after you get there I think you still have to have visual help.

To access your BIOS on a Windows 10 PC, you must follow these steps:

 

1.

Navigate to settings. ...

 

2.

Select Update & security.

 

3.

Select Recovery from the left menu.

 

4.

Click Restart Now under Advanced startup. ...

5.

Click Troubleshoot.

 

6.

Click Advanced options.

 

7.

Select UEFI Firmware Settings.

 

8.

Click Restart.

Sometimes yes, but there are times when a drive letter may be intentionally or unintentionally assigned to the partition.  Although usually when this occurs, you can see at least some of the files and folders.

And I believe recovery partitions are usually hidden so the user doesn't usually see the partition at all.

Also, it is very unlikely that any recovery partition would be at least 280 GB in size.  Recovery partitions are usually much smaller since they only contain the operating system and any manufacturer included drivers/software.

I believe you mean the MFT AKA Master File Table.  And normally the drive/partition properties will always show you the correct amount of used space even if files are hidden.  Hiding drive space from the MFT generally means either corruption or some kind of malware.  You would not use such questionable techniques on a recovery partition.

Not likely if the drive/partition is not displaying any files and the properties only show 172 MB used which is simply space being used by the file system itself.

Well make sure it is not your OS restore drive or partition. It might just not have usual name to it.

It sounds as if the word "data" may simply be assigned as the volume label.  You can leave this as is or change it in the properties.

my d drive on my pc says data "d" does this mean there is data on it? it looks like there isnt any on it. I went in there and there was nothing. but when I checked the properties it said 172 mb was being used and there is over 280 gigs free. So is it safe to use this drive?
