How much do you want to spend and do you want to be able to
text and use contacts? I believe my phone is a CDMA phone.
Depending on what you want to do, it may be the best option
for the money, even though it has accessibility problems
that you need to use work arounds to edeal with.

I'm using T Mobile, which is the same kind of network as
AT&T, and others can verify whether it is a CDMA network.

Hello,

I need a recommendation for a phone, not smart, to be used
on a CDMA carrier. If it has speech, great, but I can work
without it if I have to.

Thanks very much for your help.

Re: Drop box.

Gene
 

Here is what I consider convincing evidence that worry about read/writes is greatly exaggerated.  Here is the relevant passage from an article by a reliable source. 
You may hear people say that you have to be careful with SSDs because they have a limited number of reads and writes. In reality, consumer SSDs actually last a really, really long time under normal use. TechReport’s famous SSD endurance test showed us that a lot of those fears are over-blown, and even consumer SSDs managed to survive writing and reading well over 700TB of data. These drives usually come with a three to five year warranty, and manufacturers assume you’ll write 20GB-40GB per day in data. That means to get to that 700TB, you’d have to do 40GB every day for 17,500 days, or about 50 years. That doesn’t mean you should mistreat your drive, and it doesn’t mean SSDs won’t fail due to other issues, but if you’re worrying your SSD will die because you used it too much, don’t.

Good deal, Mike.

I think you're right to move as much data that is going to be written, deleted, rewritten etc. off of that SSD as you possibly can.  Although they're getting better all the time, the state of the art SSDs wear out much quicker when sectors are often rewritten.

The Dropbox program is installed to the "C" drive by default, but within the

you can select where you want the storage folders to be located.
I believe the default location for these folders is in the "User" directory,
but it may be possible to select another local drive or partition.

cannot complete a walmart.com order using jaws

joanne
 

I am unable to complete an order because jaws isn't finding a "cart" button or isn't helping me to edit, since one item accidentally was put in more than once and I need to get it down to 1? If anyone has gotten walmart.com to work with jaws, please let me know or if there's an accessibility link. I have tried using both the Brave browser and Internet Explorer and can't seem to complete an order.  I would just try finding items on another site, but it's a gift registry from Walmart.
 
Thanks.

Re: Drop box.

George McCoy
 

Ok, Mike, here's how to do it under Windows 10.

Open the system tray. Press d until you come to the dropbox button and press enter, or click the dropbox program shortcut if you have one.

Up arrow three times to preferences and press enter.

Press right arrow six times to focus the sync tab.

press tab twice to the dropbox folder location group move button and click it.

You will be in the standard windows browse for folder dialog.

Choose the drive and folder under which you want the dropbox folder to be placed and click the select folder button.

If you go the system tray route and the dropbox button does not appear, you will need to show all icons in the notification area.

Press the windows key plus i to open settings.

Down arrow once and right arrow once to personalization and press enter.

Tab once to the list of options and down arrow to the taskbar option and press enter.

Tab 11 times to the select which icons appear on the taskbar link and press enter.

Tab once to the always show all icons in the notification area toggle button and click it.

Close settings.

The dropbox button will now appear in the notifications area or systray.


Hth,

George

Hello,

I'm going to be getting a mesh system for my home and want to hear from those who have them. I'm thinking either the TP-Link Deco M9 or the Netgear Orbi Tri-Band, but I'm wanting to hear others recommendations and experiences.

I'm am also interested in any of these systems phone apps and how accessible they are if I would need to do setup on them either locally or when I'm out needing to change something. For reference to this question i'm using a windows10 laptop, a win10 surface pro tablet, and an android I think it's 8 phone and an android 9 tablet, so that's what any apps would have to run on.

If any of these (or other) mesh systems have native support for an OpenVPN server so that I can vpn in from remote locations that is a major plus.

Thanks.

We’ve been using an eero for a couple of years now and are perfectly happy with it. The iOS app is also completely accessible. I have no idea about android.
This is for eight 3400 square-foot house. Coverage throughout is rock solid. The wife and I run both our businesses from home and as she’s sighted, she streams a lot of 4K TV etc.
It’s held up well.
It’s been so long since we set everything up, I don’t recall how or if it was complicated at all. In general though, it’s more or less plug and play.

question i'm using a windows10 laptop, a win10 surface pro tablet, and
an android I think it's 8 phone and an android 9 tablet, so that's
what any apps would have to run on.

If any of these (or other) mesh systems have native support for an
OpenVPN server so that I can vpn in from remote locations that is a
major plus.

Thanks.

mesh systems

Hello,

I'm going to be getting a mesh system for my home and want to hear
from those who have them. I'm thinking either the TP-Link Deco M9 or
the Netgear Orbi Tri-Band, but I'm wanting to hear others
recommendations and experiences.

I'm am also interested in any of these systems phone apps and how
accessible they are if I would need to do setup on them either locally
or when I'm out needing to change something. For reference to this

Two outlook problems!

Nancy Shackelford
 

1. I accidentally set MS Outlook to work offline, and I can't find
the place where that was and where to turn it back on!
2. I want to be able to hit the Outlook shortcut "Ctrol+Alt+S" to
change the setting for how often Outlook checks for new messages. When
I do that, System access kicks in and comes on; same thing happens
using S A or N V D A, even with S A home server turned off.
Advice, please!

T I A,

Nance

Re: phone to use with cdma

T-Mobile is not CDMA it is for GSM most companies are. The only companies that or CDMA networks are Verizon and Sprint. And of course they're knock off carriers such as virgin mobile straight talk and whatever else Verizon carries. Oh and boost mobile.

I'm using T Mobile, which is the same kind of network as AT&T, and others can verify whether it is a CDMA network.

Hello,

I need a recommendation for a phone, not smart, to be used on a CDMA carrier. If it has speech, great, but I can work without it if I have to.

Thanks very much for your help.

Re: phone to use with cdma

As of 2014, according to this article , this was the situation.  I doubt it has changed but I don't know.
For instance, in the United States, two of the four major carriers (Verizon and Sprint) use CDMA while the other two (AT&T and T-Mobile) use GSM.

Re: Drop box.

Mike B
 


Hi Richard,
 
Yes, I have in the past moved the default Dropbox folder from its default location to a data drive using the, move Dropbox option, in Preferences.  But, to me it sounded like I was moving the whole folder with all sub-folders to the data drive.  In essence I thought I was changing the file path for all folders and sub-folders to the data drive, not just the storage folders.  We all could be talking about the same thing and I'm just reading / understanding differently.  Thanks much.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Mike,
The Dropbox program is installed to the "C" drive by default, but within the
Dropbox preferences
you can select where you want the storage folders to be located.
I believe the default location for these folders is in the "User" directory,
but it may be possible to select another local drive or partition.

HTH,
Rick

Hi George,

I know you can move the Dropbox from its default location and put it
elsewhere, but how do you keep it in its default location and only have the
storage located somewhere else?  This would be handy.  Thanks much.

Leave the dropbox program on the solid state drive but point it to the
4tb drive for storage. Let us know if you need instructions on how to
do it.

Re: Drop box.

Penny Golden
 

I believe it is on th solid state drive; I think so; that drive has 500 gigs and I only have 4 gigs of  drop box space, thereabouts.

I need all the help I can get as to setting things up again so I can try to work with them seamlessly, as I did when I had just one internal 1tb drive.

Sometimes the simplest things best this old lady schoolmarm from Eastern nebraska.

Hey, but I grew up in Chicago, so I am not totally an old farm girl.  Thank you all so much.

I did remove a box or two from the drop box. and they disappeared from the listing on both drives.  They were people I wanted to delete.  One, alas, had died.

In any event, what brought this up is that the other day, a friend sent me a letter in drop box.  it was in the drop box on the SSD but it did not show up in the one on the 4TB drive.

Remember, I do push buttons, yes; but i'm something of a menace on a keyboard.

So I have an instance of it on the solid state drive, and also on the 4tb drive.

The 4tb drive doesn't seem to be working; that is, the drop box program does not seem to be doing anything on the 4tb drive.

May i safely get rid of that, and just continue to use the one on the solid state drive?

Remember, I'm not a whizz, i'm just an old computer user.
