Reactions with zZoom

Allen West
 

Does anyone know if there are shortcut key strokes to perform thumbs
up and other reactions on Zoom. I can't find them if they exist at
all. It doesn't matter if these commands are accessible with JAWS or
NVDA. If they exist, I just need to know.

Thanks much

Allen

Re: aph light touch brailler?

Monte Single
 

Yes,

 

Any mechanical device like a perkins brailler needs servicing once in a while.

Usually it involves cleaning, oiling tension adjustments, etc..

It is a testament to how well the old ones were made that 60 years later, you  are still using it.

Now that’s what I call made in America.

 

And I’m from Canada!!

Wow!  The one I got in 1958 had a heavy cardboard bottom.  I can feel where I used to sit it on my knees to write.  When I discovered it was getting dented there, I stopped that.  But the braille writer still works.  I have however, had to get it cleaned and fixed several times.  Pam.

Hi Group,

I had a Perkins Braille that the local Lions club bought for me after I went blind in 1965.  I used that Brailler regularly for 40 years.  It finally got so dilapidated that I had to replace it.  The new one I got for over 1500 dollars US has already developed issues. It's much chintzier than the original one I had. The original one had a light wood bottom.  The newer one has what feels like heavy cardboard.  The older one was heavier and I believe most of the internal parts were metal.  The newer one is lighter and a cursory examination of the inside shows that many of the parts are now light plastic.  After only five years of light usage, it has developed a problem where when you press a key to create a letter, the carriage won't move on more than occasional basis.  I have to manually move the carriage.

So I am wondering if the newer versions of the Perkins Brailler are  lower quality than the originals of some 50 years ago.

my electric Perkins Brailer has developed issues even though I have sent it back for reconditioning. i'm beginning to wonder if the regular Perkins Brailer without electricity the metal one, it's really the best one in the most reliable one to get and use after all.

The cat 5 plug uses an rj45 connector where a phone line uses an rj11 connector. The one for the phone is smaller but similar to the cat5 connector.

I don't know the name of the plug, but as far as I know, that is the one I'm referring to. It looks like a phone plug but it is quite a bit larger.
That's how I disconnect when I want to. You may want to make sure that that is the same chord I'm talking about but it sounds very likely.

I have ThunderBird set up on gMail as an imap client (I think it's
called). In this case, are my e-mail messages on my computer or on
some server in some other place? If not all the same, I'm mostly
interested in the in-box, sent items and trash. It seems like I have
two trash folders. Sure would like to keep stuff on my own computer.

Thanks.

This is a reasonable way to disconnect. That won't cause any issues.

Go ahead and pull it and then you know with absolute certainty that you're disconnected from the net.

You can change your address for all groups in one operation. I'll check how it is done if no one describes it within a few hours. I'd have to look at the site and see.

Re: Groups.io question

 

Hi Greg,
Yes it is possible to change your email address on all groups at once. Simply click on the link at the bottom of the email and go to where it says your current email address. Then you’re able to delete that one and put in your current email address.
Hope this helps,

Gmail questions

Greg Wocher
 

Hello all,
I am going to switch my main email to a gmail address. Right now I have my own domain and website hosted thru Brightside Networks. I am going to probably be letting it go to save money. I have some questions about using gmail. First, if I create a label in gmail will that come down to my email program as a folder? I like sorting my mails into folders to make it easier to go thru. Secondly, when I send an email to a list is there a way to make sure I see a copy of that email on the list and not just the responses?

Thanks,
Greg Wocher

Re: accessible disk imaging software.

Steve Matzura
 

Making an accessible, bootable recovery disk using Image for Windows is explained in this article on the Terabyte site. I don't remember if it covers changing the option to make Narrator start at boot time, but that one is easy to find by editing the options file as described in the tutorial mentioned above.  I've been thinking of making a program on how to do this very thing because many have asked me how to do it, so if I make such a program, the next time someone asks, I can send it to them.
