Update on how you can access your personal “my Social Security” account

Edmond Nazarian <gocloud84@...>
 

For people who are concerned.
Update on how you can access your personal “my Social Security” account

my Social Security


On July 30, 2016, we began requiring you to sign into your /my/ Social Security account using a one-time code sent via text message. We implemented this new layer of security, known as “multifactor authentication,” in compliance with a Presidential executive order to improve the security of consumer financial transactions. SSA implemented the improvements aggressively because we have a fundamental responsibility to protect the public’s personal information.

However, multifactor authentication inconvenienced or restricted access to some of our account holders. We’re listening to your concerns and are responding by temporarily rolling back this mandate.

As before July 30, you can now access your secure account using only your username and password. We highly recommend the extra security text message option, but it is not required. We’re developing an alternative authentication option, besides text messaging, that we’ll begin implementing within the next six months.

We strive to balance security and customer service options, and we want to ensure that our online services are both easy to use and secure. The /my/ Social Security service has always featured a robust verification and authentication process, and it remains safe and secure.

We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced.

There is no requirement that you access your personal /my/ Social Security account as a result of the steps we are taking. However, when you do access your account, we encourage you to sign up for the extra security text message option. You can access your account by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount <https://links.ssa.gov/track?type=click&enid=ZWFzPTEmbXNpZD0mYXVpZD0mbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTYwODMwLjYzMTE5NTQxJm1lc3NhZ2VpZD1NREItUFJELUJVTC0yMDE2MDgzMC42MzExOTU0MSZkYXRhYmFzZWlkPTEwMDEmc2VyaWFsPTE3Nzk4NTUyJmVtYWlsaWQ9YXJtb25kMTk4MEBnbWFpbC5jb20mdXNlcmlkPWFybW9uZDE5ODBAZ21haWwuY29tJnRhcmdldGlkPSZmbD0mZXh0cmE9TXVsdGl2YXJpYXRlSWQ9JiYm&&&100&&&https://www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount>.

Re: Something better than book port or victor stream reader

Pablo Morales
 

For example; today I transferred the one chapter of the book that I am reading to my iPhone. This chapter has headings, has headings by level and it is organized very well. However voice dream is not able to find any heading on the book. Maybe I am not handleing the voice dream app well, where can I find a manual for the voice dream app?
Thanks

I would like to know your opinions about which device is better and if there are other choices.
I am looking if there is any device that allow Bluetooth headsets, something to read books, and that allow me to jumps between headings, chapters, and all of these things in books in text or audio.
Any suggestion?
Thank you so much,

Hi all,

No, you're getting two things mixed up. The Orbit Reader is going to be released in October at the cost of about $500. The Graphiti, the Braille graphics display is a different animal.

Focus on the email, bring up the context menu, press enter on junk mail options, and press enter on not junk.  That will move it to the inbox.

Or all of the emails just add them to your safe senders list.

 

I did the aforementioned numerous times as they kept going to junk, however, eventually they went where they were suppose too.

Ok, if anyone can offer advice on which is the best laser printer to
get based on the following, I would be so grateful.

My wife and I are totally blind, and live with no sighted assistance
nearby. and up until now were using a normal cannon printer, but
found, that as we did not use it much the ink was forever drying up
and when we did print, and got it checked it was missing parts of
letters etc, due to this.

So we thought of buying a laser printer, which would only have toner
cartridge, and hopefully would not dry out the same way. We only
need black and white as very rarely print colour documents. However I
don't want to buy a laser pprinter which might be menu driven or
suchlikes being totally blind.

Can anyone advise and are we doing the right thing switching over to
avoid non printing due to drying ink cartridges?
Thanks

Microcenter, they have only one location in my village! The sales folks
there always ask me how I got to know quite a bit about computers! I think
I always knock their socks off with the sort of questions I ask them. I did
meet a few that were snobs, but, for the most part, I have gotten fairly
good service from them. I buy laptops from them, and also computer parts
for use in building my desktop machines! Yes, this crazy child still loves
tinkering with the idea of building his own desktop computer. I wish I
could do the same for laptops, but I'm not that smart just yet and, by the
time I get smart enough to do it, computers may be gone or I'll be nine feet

Sis Melissa, I teamed up with a buddy of mine based in Moxie, Washington to
record a radio for an international audience using the Logitech H800 via
Skype. No kidding! The radio station we were working with in a third
country could not believe that my buddy and I were not at the same location.
Signal was extremely clear and the recording was tight. Based on that, I'd
encourage you to give it a try. It can always be returned within 30 days if
it doesn't fit the bill.

For a wireless keyboard, I recommend the Logitech MK270; I grabbed three of
these at Microcenter for a great price of $20 each and it comes with a
mouse. Plug in the nano-USB and forget it for good.

Chief Carlos has already recommended the Logitech H800. This is a
combination wireless and bluetooth headset. I've never tried pairing it for
bluetooth usage, but I have loved it so much as a wireless device and that's
the way I use it. I have two, both purchased from amazon.com! Like the
keyboard I have, it comes with a nano-USB which you can plug in and also
forget. The batery may be an issue for some: It is good for six hours at a
stretch, but it'll give you plenty of warning before it requires a charge.

Good luck on finding the right fit from the long list of recommendations!
All the very best.

>> WILMINGTON, DE (PRWEB) August 02, 2016
>>
>> Orbit Research and the American Printing House for the Blind (APH)
today announced the introduction of Graphiti™, the world's first affordable
tactile graphics display.
>>
>> Based on revolutionary Tactuator™ technology from Orbit Research, the
Graphiti refreshable tactile graphics display represents a breakthrough in
non-visual access to graphical information such as charts, drawings,
flowcharts, floorplans, images and photographs, through an array of moving
pins. The most unique feature of the technology is the ability to set each
pin to different heights, which enables the display of topographical maps
and other graphical elements such as grey shades and color represented as
varying heights of pins that can be readily sensed by the user’s fingers.
>>
>> Connectable to computers, tablets, smartphones, or the Orion TI-84 Plus
Talking Graphing Calculator via a USB-C port or Bluetooth, its open API
allows developers to create apps to work with Graphiti. Additionally, an
HDMI port allows connection to any device with a video display output,
identifying the unit as a display monitor. This enables any device to
connect seamlessly to Graphiti. The unit also includes a cursor pad for
navigation, and an SD-card slot for loading files for reading and editing in
a standalone mode.
>>
>> Graphiti also features a touch interface to enable the user to "draw"
on the display; tracing a shape with a fingertip raises the pins along the
path traced. The touch interface allows traditional forms of touch commands
such as scrolling, multi-touch gestures, etc. In addition, it enables novel
uses such as "pushing" or "nudging" an object on the display to physically
move it.
>>
>> The proprietary technology is fundamentally scalable and enables
development of refreshable graphic displays of any size, at a fraction of
the cost of graphic displays in the market today. The first model has 2,400
pins in an array of 60 x 40 pins, and can be used in a portrait or landscape
orientation. Each pin is independently addressable and can also be made to
individually "blink" at configurable rates.
>>
>> Building upon APH’s vast experience in the development of educational
products and Orbit Research’s core technology and expertise in developing
affordable accessible products, this unique product is the outcome of
continuing collaborative efforts between the companies.
>>
>> "We are tremendously excited about the opportunities Graphiti opens for
the blind or visually impaired user. Our Orion family of talking scientific
and graphing calculators enabled access to mainstream tools for STEM
education for blind and visually impaired students. The recently announced
Orbit Reader 20, enables access to low-cost braille and literacy. We believe
Graphiti will do for graphics what the Orbit Reader 20 did for braille.”
said Dr. Gina Spagnoli, Orbit Research’s Founder. “The variable-height
capability that our Tactuator technology enables will allow blind users to
experience and interact with graphics like never before – live and in three
dimensions. For the first time, a blind user will be able to create graphics
in digital form, enter them into a computing device, review and edit them,
and exchange such graphics with others.” she added.
>>
>> “This technology is breaking new ground for the education of the
braille reading students and adults we serve. It gives us a glimpse into the
future of what the graphical digital information age will look like. Up
until now, we have only imagined. Graphiti proves that we can,” said Dr.
Craig Meador, APH President. “It will be an invaluable tool in the classroom
because of its versatility. For the first time in history, a student who is
blind can connect a tactile monitor to instruments, including microscopes,
telescopes, or video cameras for real time depiction of dynamic content. For
example, it will connect to the Orion TI-84 Plus Talking Graphing Calculator
and students will be able to see the graph, immediately, on the tactile
screen. Textbooks in math and science contain thousands of graphics.
Graphiti provides a path toward delivering textbooks with graphics,
electronically.”

>>
>> WILMINGTON, DE (PRWEB) August 02, 2016
>>
>> Orbit Research and the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) today announced the introduction of Graphiti™, the world's first affordable tactile graphics display.
>>
>> Based on revolutionary Tactuator™ technology from Orbit Research, the Graphiti refreshable tactile graphics display represents a breakthrough in non-visual access to graphical information such as charts, drawings, flowcharts, floorplans, images and photographs, through an array of moving pins. The most unique feature of the technology is the ability to set each pin to different heights, which enables the display of topographical maps and other graphical elements such as grey shades and color represented as varying heights of pins that can be readily sensed by the user’s fingers.
>>
>> Connectable to computers, tablets, smartphones, or the Orion TI-84 Plus Talking Graphing Calculator via a USB-C port or Bluetooth, its open API allows developers to create apps to work with Graphiti. Additionally, an HDMI port allows connection to any device with a video display output, identifying the unit as a display monitor. This enables any device to connect seamlessly to Graphiti. The unit also includes a cursor pad for navigation, and an SD-card slot for loading files for reading and editing in a standalone mode.
>>
>> Graphiti also features a touch interface to enable the user to "draw" on the display; tracing a shape with a fingertip raises the pins along the path traced. The touch interface allows traditional forms of touch commands such as scrolling, multi-touch gestures, etc. In addition, it enables novel uses such as "pushing" or "nudging" an object on the display to physically move it.
>>
>> The proprietary technology is fundamentally scalable and enables development of refreshable graphic displays of any size, at a fraction of the cost of graphic displays in the market today. The first model has 2,400 pins in an array of 60 x 40 pins, and can be used in a portrait or landscape orientation. Each pin is independently addressable and can also be made to individually "blink" at configurable rates.
>>
>> Building upon APH’s vast experience in the development of educational products and Orbit Research’s core technology and expertise in developing affordable accessible products, this unique product is the outcome of continuing collaborative efforts between the companies.
>>
>> "We are tremendously excited about the opportunities Graphiti opens for the blind or visually impaired user. Our Orion family of talking scientific and graphing calculators enabled access to mainstream tools for STEM education for blind and visually impaired students. The recently announced Orbit Reader 20, enables access to low-cost braille and literacy. We believe Graphiti will do for graphics what the Orbit Reader 20 did for braille.” said Dr. Gina Spagnoli, Orbit Research’s Founder. “The variable-height capability that our Tactuator technology enables will allow blind users to experience and interact with graphics like never before – live and in three dimensions. For the first time, a blind user will be able to create graphics in digital form, enter them into a computing device, review and edit them, and exchange such graphics with others.” she added.
>>
>> “This technology is breaking new ground for the education of the braille reading students and adults we serve. It gives us a glimpse into the future of what the graphical digital information age will look like. Up until now, we have only imagined. Graphiti proves that we can,” said Dr. Craig Meador, APH President. “It will be an invaluable tool in the classroom because of its versatility. For the first time in history, a student who is blind can connect a tactile monitor to instruments, including microscopes, telescopes, or video cameras for real time depiction of dynamic content. For example, it will connect to the Orion TI-84 Plus Talking Graphing Calculator and students will be able to see the graph, immediately, on the tactile screen. Textbooks in math and science contain thousands of graphics. Graphiti provides a path toward delivering textbooks with graphics, electronically.”

Hi Group,


The product won't ship until late 2017. I wonder just what they mean by
'affordable?' They don't give a price on their page.

WILMINGTON, DE (PRWEB) August 02, 2016
