Hello everyone.

 

I'm writing to let you know about some future technology gifts  my girlfriend.  her birthday she will be getting a new iPhone, no problem what to get her there. But for her 30th I'm thinking of getting her a mac. But I would like to know what would be suitable  someone who just reads emails, browsing the web, including using Facebook, listening to music, watching Youtube, you get the idea. I'm leaning towards either a Macbook Air or Macbook Pro, the latter being a good option I think as she would be used to machines equivalent of a Windows laptop.

 

Any responses are very welcome. Thank you in advance.

 

Kindest Regards

Chris

Hi,

There are more important bugs found that may or may not impact JAWS users. If you can live with the following bugs for a while or just curious, upgrade to the Anniversary Update:

·         Webcams does not work properly.

·         Plugging certain Kindle products causes Windows to crash.

Note that it is recommended to use JAWS 17.0.2619 or later (or better yet, JAWS 18).

Cheers,

Joseph

There's also a Pro version of the program, and its users may make suggestions for improvements. I believe $24. It's been going since at least some time in 2012.

Hi Group,


I downloaded and installed the newest version of OE Classic version
2.51. It is definitely not accessible. None of the first letter
navigation features work as they do in the original Outlook Express.
Folder navigation is not possible without use of the JAWS/review
cursor. Similarly, navigating the options menus is not possible using
classic keystrokes such as tab and shift tab. You must use review/JAWS
cursor to highlight items and click with the JAWS/mouse cursors.


Unless you really want to be frustrated or unless there is some setting
I must change to make the program more accessible, I would not recommend
it for blind users.

Maybe he is confused about bitrates e.g. 128 KBP/ and/or 44/48 KHz?
These are about audio quality.

Good morning, folks, Brian Zolo here from Gahanna,
Ohio. We’ve been having issues here with slow speeds on
our network. We’re using an airport extreme router and
have 3 windows laptops as well as iphones and android
phones as well as an xbox game console. We’re having
problems with slow connection speeds on our laptops.
The airport extreme router isn’t a bad router though the
airport utility for windows sin’t terribly accessible
with jaws. We could use the airport utility for ios
which works well with the iphone but I’m wondering
wether we’d be better off to go with a router that’s
more compatible with windows machines. The wowway modem
we have is now operating in bridge mode which is
supposed to help make the router work to its full
potential. I had a tech from wowway come out and he
says the signal is good but admitted that he didn’t know
much about pc’s after telling us that our laptop
connection speed was slow. It took me more than an hour
to download a 500 meg zip file which to me is mighty
slow considering that we’re paying for 60 meg download
speed. There are lots of networks around us so I know
we may be dealing with network congestion as well. One
feature that the airport extreme doesn’t have is the
quality of service feature and bearing in mind that
we’ve got a game console here, we need a router that
will give us the ability to prioritize traffic and also
need something that has a more accessible interface
rather than the airport extreme. We’re dealing with
nine devices here in our house and that definitely can
take bandwidth, grin! Lots of issues covered here, I
always like to learn from these experiences so that I
can help others when they face these same issues. I
really enjoy this list and enjoy the input and
suggestions received here. Have a great weekend! bZ!

Re: Googling it, Article Navigation Tips

Gene
 

One reason I didn't include commands is that they aren't all the same in different screen-readers. 
 
Find is control shift f in Window-eyes, control f in JAWS and NVDA key control f in NVDA.  As far as I know, h and n are the same commands in the three screen-readers I am discussing.  But if someone is still using a version of Window-eyes that is a number of years old, for some reason, skip blocks of links uses x for the command.

Hi Gene,
 
I rewrote your prior post about article searching a little bit, I hope you don't mind.
 
From: Gene
If a blind person has good Internet skills, something a lamentably large number of blind people don't have, it is not difficult to find articles.  Using the, navigation quick key letter, N, pressing N moves you to the next block of text that is not a link / skip blocks of links command, , the move by heading command, pressing the letter, H, and the find command, Control + F, articles can easily be found, though it may take trying more than one method to find an article. 
 
If the move by headings and the skip blocks of links commands don't produce good results, something that is very reliable is the following:
If you read the title bar on the page, it will usually announce the title of the article.  If you start at the top of the page and type one or two words forming a part of the title that is only likely to be found in the title and search, you will almost always find the exact title farther down the page about at the start of the article.  Once there, if you find an annoying number of links under the title, you can use the skip blocks of links command and and usually end up at or about at the start of the text.
 
I have never seen this method taught and it's really bad training not to do so. 
 
Gene
 
Take care.

I am not a lawyer but here is what I think the answer is.  Below my answer, I explain how to find the start of an article in a way that is quite reliable in case the ways people usually use don't work on a given page.
 
That's the law.  As a practical matter, it doesn't matter.  the author of a newspaper or magazine or other information site article isn't going to join this list and see his article and he/she might not care anyway.  But there is no blindness exception in such cases.  The blindness exception is that which applies to material produced in a proprietary format to be distributed to blind people which format cannot be accessed by sighted people.
 
However, if a blind person has good Internet skills, something a lamentably large number of blind people don't have, it is not difficult to find articles.  Using the skip blocks of links command, the move by heading command, and the find command, articles can easily be found, though it may take trying more than one method to find an article.

If you read the title bar on the page, it will usually announce the title of the article.  If you start at the top of the page and type one or two words forming a part of the title that is only likely to be found in the title and search, you will almost always find the exact title farther down the page about at the start of the article.  Once there, if you find an annoying number of links under the title, you can use the skip blocks of links command and and usually end up at or about at the start of the text.
 
I have never seen this method taught and it's really bad training not to do so.

Hi Ann,
Does that still stand if the list is for those who are blind, especially
considering the various difficulties of the accessibility of websites?

Hello everyone.

 

I'm writing to let you know about some future technology gifts  my girlfriend.  her birthday she will be getting a new iPhone, no problem what to get her there. But for her 30th I'm thinking of getting her a mac. But I would like to know what would be suitable  someone who just reads emails, browsing the web, including using Facebook, listening to music, watching Youtube, you get the idea. I'm leaning towards either a Macbook Air or Macbook Pro, the latter being a good option I think as she would be used to machines equivalent of a Windows laptop.

 

Any responses are very welcome. Thank you in advance.

 

Kindest Regards

Chris

You might also want to look at the DD-WRT Router Database.

You should read through the installation section

of the DD-WRT Wiki.

Can you elaborate on the DD-WRT firmware? Where can one find the best copy of the latest build, and are there instructions for installation?

I've had good luck with Buffalo models and any router capable of running the open source DD-WRT firmware will be accessible.

Good morning, folks, Brian Zolo here from Gahanna, Ohio.  We’ve been having issues here with slow speeds on our network.  We’re using an airport extreme router and have 3 windows laptops as well as iphones and android phones as well as an xbox game console.  We’re having problems with slow connection speeds on our laptops.  The airport extreme router isn’t a bad router though the airport utility for windows sin’t terribly accessible with jaws.  We could use the airport utility for ios which works well with the iphone but I’m wondering wether we’d be better off to go with a router that’s more compatible with windows machines.  The wowway modem we have is now operating in bridge mode which is supposed to help make the router work to its full potential.  I had a tech from wowway come out and he says the signal is good but admitted that he didn’t know much about pc’s after telling us that our laptop connection speed was slow.  It took me more than an hour to download a 500 meg zip file which to me is mighty slow considering that we’re paying for 60 meg download speed.  There are lots of networks around us so I know we may be dealing with network congestion as well.  One feature that the airport extreme doesn’t have is the quality of service feature and bearing in mind that we’ve got a game console here, we need a router that will give us the ability to prioritize traffic and also need something that has a more accessible interface rather than the airport extreme.  We’re dealing with nine devices here in our house and that definitely can take bandwidth, grin!  Lots of issues covered here, I always like to learn from these experiences so that I can help others when they face these same issues.  I really enjoy this list and enjoy the input and suggestions received here.  Have a great weekend!  bZ!    


Re: Googling it, Article Navigation Tips

Hi Gene,
 
I rewrote your prior post about article searching a little bit, I hope you don't mind.
 
From: Gene
If a blind person has good Internet skills, something a lamentably large number of blind people don't have, it is not difficult to find articles.  Using the, navigation quick key letter, N, pressing N moves you to the next block of text that is not a link / skip blocks of links command, , the move by heading command, pressing the letter, H, and the find command, Control + F, articles can easily be found, though it may take trying more than one method to find an article. 
 
If the move by headings and the skip blocks of links commands don't produce good results, something that is very reliable is the following:
If you read the title bar on the page, it will usually announce the title of the article.  If you start at the top of the page and type one or two words forming a part of the title that is only likely to be found in the title and search, you will almost always find the exact title farther down the page about at the start of the article.  Once there, if you find an annoying number of links under the title, you can use the skip blocks of links command and and usually end up at or about at the start of the text.
 
I have never seen this method taught and it's really bad training not to do so.

Take care.

I am not a lawyer but here is what I think the answer is.  Below my answer, I explain how to find the start of an article in a way that is quite reliable in case the ways people usually use don't work on a given page.
 
That's the law.  As a practical matter, it doesn't matter.  the author of a newspaper or magazine or other information site article isn't going to join this list and see his article and he/she might not care anyway.  But there is no blindness exception in such cases.  The blindness exception is that which applies to material produced in a proprietary format to be distributed to blind people which format cannot be accessed by sighted people.
