Hi Group,

Isn't that the law?  Only the top 25 markets require over air description and I wouldn't be surprised if that is the requirement for service in general. 
 
it's ridiculous that described versions of programs that have been broadcast on air are not required to be posted by networks.  If a network broadcasts a program on its stations with description, and they put it up for on demand access on their web site, a described version should also be available. B;lind people are being forced to live in the Nineties because of the completely outdated legislation now in effect.

Hi all,

Your cable company may not be broadcasting discriptive content. 
Depends on where you live.  Time Warner thinks they can break the law
with impunity and only push descriptive content to their top
twenty-five markets.

Hi Gary, In my particular case I'm using Dish network, and the audio descriptions needed to be turned on on the satellite receiver, and not the TV. If you are receiving over the air signals, try the fox network for described video. so far, they are the only ones I know is sending descriptions in my Tampa, Florida area. I don't know what broadcast area you are receiving, but only the biggest 60 broadcast areas in the United States are required to even send description from what I've learned. The Fox channel that sends description sure is nice. I have not found description on any other network as of yet, although I've only been receiving description for about a week. All the best of luck.

If the sound card circuitry got damaged then your system most likely won’t pick it up as it no longer is acting like an external audio device. Make sure by trying it in another system in case your port is having some issues.

Re: logitec wired headset

Try the following:
 
1. Disconnect the headset from the USB port.
 
2. Download the following utility
http://www.uwe-sieber.de/files/devicecleanup.zip
and unzip it.
 
3. Select 32 or 64 bit depending on the architecture you are running.
 
4. When the program opens, look for instances of the USB headset in the list and press the Delete key if found.
 
5. Close the program.
 
6. Reconnect the headset.
 
7. Give it a few seconds to reinstall the drivers.
 
8. Check if it appears in the list of audio devices.  If so, try selecting it as the default and see if it works now.

It just says "windows updates could not be installed."  And some websites are telling me I need to update my browser, which I can't do because of the updates not installing.  My troubleshooter says it's checking for updates online, but it doesn't say where in the checking it is.  When I googled it it said something about making sure service pack for windows 7 is the most recent, but I'm not sure how to find this info.  I suspect drivers might need updating too and wish I knew when it was refurbished since that might tell me if some things are way outdated or not.

From what I have found out is, they have reconfigured the windows updater so that it works like windows ten, which means it checks every single update, so that if you have a lot of updates, it can make you think that it is stuck, because it takes so long.  I don’t know what that error message is, though.  Pam.

I am using a refurbished windows 7 laptop and am getting the "cannot install windows updates error".  I am running the troubleshooter but don't know if it's normal for it to take a long time to find a solution or if it's stuck.  It's been running awhile and I use Jaws, and routing the cursors I'm not given a percentage that the troubleshooter might be at.  Should I just keep this running or do you know of a fix to get the updates?  It is a windows 7 computer but I don't know what service pack it has and if updating this would make a difference.
 
Thanks.

Do you know which service pack windows 7 should have?  Also thanks for the windver command and I'll check this.  But just wondered what the service pack number should be as far as the most current one for windows 7.

There seem to be several problems with Windows update lately.  I don't have a solution for your specific issue, but to find out what Service Pack you have installed, press Windows key+R to open the
"Run"
dialog and then type
winver
followed by Enter.

It just says "windows updates could not be installed."  And some websites are telling me I need to update my browser, which I can't do because of the updates not installing.  My troubleshooter says it's checking for updates online, but it doesn't say where in the checking it is.  When I googled it it said something about making sure service pack for windows 7 is the most recent, but I'm not sure how to find this info.  I suspect drivers might need updating too and wish I knew when it was refurbished since that might tell me if some things are way outdated or not.

From what I have found out is, they have reconfigured the windows updater so that it works like windows ten, which means it checks every single update, so that if you have a lot of updates, it can make you think that it is stuck, because it takes so long.  I don’t know what that error message is, though.  Pam.

I agree.  I wouldn't worry so much about drivers.  If a particular device is working, there is generally no need to update it's drivers unless a newer version offers additional functionality or the current version is known to contain a security vulnerability.

Unless a driver adds one or more  features to something like a printer or sound card that you want, there is no reason to update drivers as long as the device is stable and works well and the system is stable as well. 
 
I'll let others discuss Windows Updates.  But based on what you have said, one of the first things, perhaps the first thing I think you should do is to see what version of Windows 7 you are using. 
Open the run dialog by pressing and holding the Windows key.  While doing that, type the letter r, then release both keys.
Type winver when the start dialog opens and press enter.
A dialog opens.  See what it says about the Windows version.
 
I don't recall if you can close the dialog with escape or if you have to use something else such as alt f4.
