Re: techtalk URL?

Flor Lynch
 

You'd get many different and various Tech Talk products/programmes (and Google doesn't respect uppercase characters in searches). So you'd have to refine the search quite a bit. A complicating factor is that there is an old archive of RNIB Tech Talk episodes, on the former URL up to last week, and from the new Audioboom.com URL from two weeks ago.

Subject: [TechTalk] jaws and firefox

Hello,
I am using JAWS 17. My default web browser is Mozilla
Firefox since that works better with the software that we
use at work.
However, I am having an issue in which I cannot enter
contracted Braille anywhere in Firefox. However, if I open
Internet Explorer and use contracted Braille, it works fine.
I have input and output set to unified English Braille grade
2 in JAWS, so I'm not sure why JAWS won't let me use
contracted Braille in Firefox.
I remember it worked before, but Firefox updated itself a
week ago, so I'm wondering if the update caused the issue.
Has anyone experienced this issue with JAWS and their
Braille display in Firefox? I'm using a Focus 14 right now
but will be switching back to my Brailliant. Is there any
way to fix this issue or will I have to switch my default
browser back to Internet Explorer? Braille input won't work
at all in Google Chrome.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

No. Samsung galaxy note 7, s7 and s7 edge still comes with

Even sony ones as well. Only apple started these kind of
nonsense.
Waterproofing is just a stupid reason, stereo speaker might
be acceptable.

So, just out of my own ignorance and me being curious, does
this mean that those devices that are supposedly waterproof,
such as the Samsung Galaxy S whatever version lack a port
for plugging in headphones?

I've never actually seen one of these later devices, so was
wondering.


While I suppose I could understand why not having this type
of connection could help in making it resistant to water, I
still think it's a real bad idea to be solely reliant on a
lightning connection hanging off the bottom of my phone when
I want to use my Earpods. Not real sure that I like the
alternative either, having to use a wireless connection for
my headphones, most especially since I tend to turn off
Bluetooth if I have no need of it.

Re: Apple May Test iPhone Users' Loyalty If It Dumps The Headphone Jack

Yes, Belkin is going to make one of them. authorise apple accessories maker.

The reason I would guess, they are preparing to change their overall phone to something like glass so that wireless charging can be done.

Someone will have to make a splitter so another peace of crap to carry
around. Those airpods are over 100 dollars and the charge time sucks.
Apple has lost it's edge and really saying removing the headphone jack
helps with water proofing it doesn't. They also removed the home
button because they thought they would look cool by doing it.

So, just out of my own ignorance and me being curious, does
this mean that those devices that are supposedly waterproof,
such as the Samsung Galaxy S whatever version lack a port
for plugging in headphones?

I've never actually seen one of these later devices, so was
wondering.


While I suppose I could understand why not having this type
of connection could help in making it resistant to water, I
still think it's a real bad idea to be solely reliant on a
lightning connection hanging off the bottom of my phone when
I want to use my Earpods. Not real sure that I like the
alternative either, having to use a wireless connection for
my headphones, most especially since I tend to turn off
Bluetooth if I have no need of it.

Hello,

Sorry I didn’t see this question before now.

https://audioboom.com/channels/4813993.rss

- that’s one of the addresses (given their recent move to Audioboom). If you go to the RNIB ConnectRadio TechTalk site itself, you’ll be directed to it. Under the new dispensation there are about three different podcasts feeds to choose from now. I wasn’t keen on the way they just upped and moved from their old, reliable, site, and I emailed them about that (among a couple other things).

Re: A question about Internet Explorer

Well, Press space on the Ask Me Later, and you will get an option that says "do not disable". This is what you want.
The "Ask Me Later" is actually a split button.

Someone on the list suggested one site, for the life I can't remember it
now) but it was mainly for people who cannot talk anymmore. It is free
to those with speech difficulties, like those people with ALS, but it
does not appear to be right for the blind.

The program I had wad talked about about 5 years ago and I guess you
just plugged in sound files and allowed teh program to somehow make a
voice for you that would work with various screen readers.

Does anyone have a clue as to what I am talking about or was this
program and the company that created it lost in the US recession?

Thanks and sorry for the lack of details on the program.

Re: Tune In Radio and NFL Radio Broadcasts: A Pleasant Surprise

Tim Grady
 

Here's another option for VRStream gen2 owners. Some of the stations broadcast these games over the Net. So if you find them just add them to your favorites and listen. A few examples would be 98 rock for the Ravens, ESPN980 for the redskins and if you search for the Raiders you can listen to them.

Subject: [TechTalk] Tune In Radio and NFL Radio Broadcasts: A Pleasant Surprise

Hi Group,


As many of you know, last year, NFL.com combined their Video and audio packages into one costly (one hundred dollars a year) package thus effectively quintupling the cost for blind people who have no real interest in the video. In addition, the website became a lot less accessible and little has been done to change that.


This year, I signed up for the Tune In Premium package--which among other things--includes NFL regular and post season game; NBA, NHL and MLB radio broadcasts.


I was a bit apprehensive about this as I had heard mixed reviews from others on various visually impaired oriented lists. The cost per month is $7.99 and you can cancel at any time.


Here is my analysis of the first week of games and my listening experience. I would give the service a 98% rating. The games I wanted to listen to: Buffalo at Baltimore; Cincinnati at New York Jets; Miami at Seattle; and New England at Arizona, all played perfectly. The audio was decent enough and well balanced. The only issue that I had at all, was that the premium stations cut away from the broadcast almost immediately after the final whistle and if you wanted to hear the post game show, you had to unload the premium stream and then access the free stream on the station you were listening to that carried the premium stream. In one case, the New England VS Arizona game, it took 5 minutes for the free station to allow me back into the post game show. I don't know quite why this happened. I kept getting the message: "The stream you are trying to access is unavailable to you. This may be because of one of two things: Either you are trying to access premium sports content from outside the USA or you are trying to access premium content for which you are not entitled. You can rectify this situation by doing one of two things. Either move to the USA or subscribe to our premium
service." This was a bit odd--since iI had a premium subscription.
Five minutes after this message began, the station became accessible.
Perhaps this was just a one time glitch. Other than that one incident, the streams played quite well.


Here is a hint for those of you who in the past said you had issues with Tune In sports events.

1. Bookmark the pages within the sports page of Tune In that you want such as NFL or MLB.

2. Also bookmark your favorite team's web page when you are listening to a game. Usually between games, they stream either highlights of past games or talk shows or podcasts concerning that team.

3. To access your premium stream, switch on forms mode as you approach the listing of teams. This is necessary because the team listing are some sort of on mouse ove or hover item. Once you have switched to forms mode (JAWS) or edit mode (NVDA) use the tab and shift tab to move over the team names and then press the enter key to access the stream.
If you bookmark the favorite teams as suggested above, this of course, will not be necessary. If you want to switch between team streams during an active day of sports events, it would help to switch and use this forms mode approach. Otherwise, you would have to bookmark dozens of team streams and then page through them.


If you are a real sports fan, I would recommend Tune In Premium for easy access to hundreds of radio sports events.

Re: Entering and Leaving TalkBack

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

May be I am using the wrong Android phone: But on what I generally describe
as my Shiny "crapware" Android, I turn Talkback on and off by pressing the
Home Key three times! No fuss, no additional bells and whistles, it just
works! I don't know how this works on a phone without a physical home key.
Be that as it may, you can set a suspend/resume command for Talkback.
Suspend when you need to hand the phone over to a sighted folk, then resume
when your device is handed back to you!

Ok, did I say "crapware" Android? Yes, because blind folks who don't even
run Android enjoy shooting the OS for no JUST cause; I'm not saying that
Android is perfect since no OS is! However, I love to explore and Android
puts me where I need to be. So my Shiny "crapware" Android keeps leaving
the lights on for me yay!
