OBI200 accessibility

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So I just bought an OBI200 to use in conjunction with my Google Voice business tell and while I can have someone with sight set it up for me and whatnot, I was still curious as to its accessibility in general. Be it setting up, configuring with telephones and other VOIP services.

Any input would be appreciated.

 


Re: o c r and scanning; was future of screen read market

Gene
 

That may be true much of the time but the question appeared to deal with attempting to place one page, not a large text book page, on the screen.  I scanned some large text book pages and they fit easily on a standard scanner.  There weren't problems such as other pages causing problems with scanning because the page fit well. 
 
We would need more information to be sure what the specific situation being discussed is.

Gene, When scanning a book such as a textbook, only one page will fit on the scanning surface--two page scanning is not possible in this scenario.

That doesn't sound practical to me.  I don't know if it's possible, but it sounds as thogh it would be aimed at such a small market that it would be prohibitively expensive.  I don't know if any places like Google have some sort of automated system but again, if so, I would expect it to be prohibitibely expensive.  Also, a lot of the problems you are discussing would either disappear or be greatly reduced if you had a book scanner instead of a typical flat bet scanner.  You wouldn't damage the binding and pages would be properly aligned.  On flat bed scanners, it is much easier to scan two pages at once.  Why are you scanning one at a time using a flatbed scanner?  If your OCR program is set up properly, it will produce two separate pages if you scan in this way, but you have to have your program set up to do this.

Hi Monty,
The binding of the book cannot be removed, as it may be a temporarily borrowed possession of another, or just cannot be physically modified due to any other factor or reason. A book in the way it is printed should be scanned page by page automatically in a mechanized way, fast, accurate, and non-erroneous.
Thanks.

Re: Unzipping a RAR file

I am fairly confident "Extract here" is a Windows function and has nothing

Depending on how 7-Zip is configured, the items may not be in a submenu.
Look for items such as
"Extract Here"
and
"Extract to Subfolder"
with subfolder being the name of the file you are extracting.

You only have to press shift f10 if you don't have a context key. You press the context key, enter down to unzip file, and hit enter. I don't know why he said right arrow. After I hit enter on unzip file, I arrow down to the one where it said the file name and I think it says here. I don't understand all it says. But I can tell you if
it says "test archive: you have gond one too far. Arrow back up one and hit enter. Pam.

Hi all. I just bought and am using a HP4000K bluetooth keyboard, which
will work with either the windows or mac OS. I really like it except
one tghing; I can't find the home / end, insert / delete keys. The
keyboard has 2 windows' keys on each side of the respective alt keys,
and the function key which makes a lot of the home keys into number
keys is next to left hand control, but I haven't yet found "delete" or
"insert.
Reading the book is a bit daunting since the obvious picture is not
there for a blind person and since I can't see at all, I wonder if
someone has a quick solution to my issue, the function key plus which
key or, what? The
f2-f12 keys seem to be above the number row. It is a nice little
keyboard and easy to type on, just need that insert / delete key
function. :) I just bought the same keyboard from Amazon which blind
bargains had advertised for just a dollar more for the taxes, and I
got it in one day, so check your Amazon to see if the same items are
available there for just the sales' tax added and 2-day shipping for
prime members means you'll receive it faster than on that web site
which charged just the
$14.99 which I paid plus my California sales' tax. :)---- Curtis Delzer,

That doesn't sound practical to me. I don't know if it's possible, but it sounds as thogh it would be aimed at such a small market that it would be prohibitively expensive. I don't know if any places like Google have some sort of automated system but again, if so, I would expect it to be prohibitibely expensive. Also, a lot of the problems you are discussing would either disappear or be greatly reduced if you had a book scanner instead of a typical flat bet scanner. You wouldn't damage the binding and pages would be properly aligned. On flat bed scanners, it is much easier to scan two pages at once. Why are you scanning one at a time using a flatbed scanner? If your OCR program is set up properly, it will produce two separate pages if you scan in this way, but you have to have your program set up to do this.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] o c r and scanning; was future of screen read
market

Hi,
This is a pretty unrelated and random idea that struck me a week or
two ago, when I was having a chat with a fellow senior school student
about our common computer science aspirations and how assistive
technology could be improved. Since then, I was trying to identify
some evident challenges that I faced and could be seemingly readily enhanced.
Currently, the process of scanning a hard copy book (paperback) is
particularly cumbersome - quality depends not only on the OCR engine
and scanner's resolution, but also on how well the person scanning
adjusts the book so that the contents of the respective page come in
completely and not partially, and bits of other pages don't get
intertwined. This adjustion is prone to human errors, and OCR results
may be significantly dteriorated by man's imperfection, and this may
sometimes be a very irksome and laborious process.
Is there a device available today in which when a hard copy book is
put, it automatically distinguishes between the area of one page as
opposed to the other, automatically adjusting the portion to be in
scanning focus, and automatically turning pages and repeating the
previous additional checks? If the task of scanning could also be
machine automated, that could potentially massively boost scanning
quality, speeds and consequently, from a larger perspective,
availability of high quality electronic format accessible reading material.
Thanks.

Hi Everyone:

Anyone in the house used the EyePal? What are your thoughts and
experiences regarding this device? For instance, does it come only
with a proprietary OCR software or can I run my Abbyy FineReader
using it?

I might be able to grab one for scanning purposes; but before I do,
I'd like to hear from someone who might have played with one for an
extended period of time. Much thanks!!

Re: Unzipping a RAR file

Veronica Kirk
 

Hi Rob,

Thank you for the suggestion. I have downloaded 7zip, but unless I have
explicit instructions I am not very savvy about how to use a lot of
different programs and this one seems to be a problem for me. If you would
please could you send me instructions as to how to unzip the RAR file,
maybe off list so we would not clutter up the list. My e-mail address is
veronicaakirk@gmail.com

I could even send you the file that I need to unzip, if you would like.

Grab a copy of 7zip from 7-zip.org and that will open just about any
compressed format you want.

Oh yeah, in order to be able to use the capslock key with this Bluetooth
keyboard, don't forget to go into jaws dialogue and set your keyboard layout
for laptop rather than desktop.

Subject: [TechTalk] HP4000K keyboard

Hi all. I just bought and am using a HP4000K bluetooth keyboard, which
will work with either the windows or mac OS. I really like it except
one tghing; I can't find the home / end, insert / delete keys. The
keyboard has 2 windows' keys on each side of the respective alt keys,
and the function key which makes a lot of the home keys into number
keys is next to left hand control, but I haven't yet found "delete" or
"insert.
Reading the book is a bit daunting since the obvious picture is not
there for a blind person and since I can't see at all, I wonder if
someone has a quick solution to my issue, the function key plus which
key or, what? The
f2-f12 keys seem to be above the number row. It is a nice little
keyboard and easy to type on, just need that insert / delete key
function. :) I just bought the same keyboard from Amazon which blind
bargains had advertised for just a dollar more for the taxes, and I
got it in one day, so check your Amazon to see if the same items are
available there for just the sales' tax added and 2-day shipping for
prime members means you'll receive it faster than on that web site
which charged just the
$14.99 which I paid plus my California sales' tax. :)---- Curtis Delzer,

Re: HP4000K keyboard

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

Hi Curtis,

This is a neat little find. If I may, I'd like to ask the following
questions...

1. Does the keyboard have all 12 function keys above the number row?

2. I'm assuming there's no numpad to the right of the keyboard, right?

3. Is the FN key on the bottom row of keys to the right, or is it to the
left of the control key?

4. Can you make the task bar show by pressing right winkey+T?

5. Does pressing FN key+U simulate pressing of the Home key?
Does pressing Function key+O simulate pressing the NumPadPageUp key?

6. Assumption, I'm assuming the 6-pack of keys is missing due to space
constraints.

Don't forget that you can turn on jaws help and press various keyboard
commands to help you determine what the respective keyboard command will do.


Is this the correct link to the keyboard you posted?
