Re: Anybody Know If Any Software Defined Radio Applications Are Accessible with JAWS?

Evan Reese
 

Hi Steve,
I was asking about software packages you run on your computer. You still have to connect something to detect the radio signals to your PC, but most of the functions of the radio are performed with the software.
From what I’ve heard, there are all kinds of things you can do with it. But the question is, is it accessible? I haven’t had much luck finding out so far. Apparently, few, if any, blind people use it.

Then there are SDR's you connect to your computer, which is what the original poster was asking about, I think.

As I recall, SDR allows you to operate a receiver remotely and listen to stations from the remote receiver.  I'm saying that in case people want to know what it is.

Hey Guys,
I asked this on the All Audio list, and the Blind Tech list, but didn’t get any responses other than inquiries as to what Software Defined Radio is. So I’m hoping that someone here may be able to tell me whether any SDR packages are useable with JAWS.
A friend of mine was telling me about it and it does sound interesting, but he doesn’t use any screen readers, so he couldn’t give me any info on accessibility.
So has anyone here tried any SDR packages with JAWS?
Thanks much.
Evan


Re: Cortana.

 

Hi Penny,
I may be able to help your friend out as I have used Cortana for a little while now if you want to give her my phone number which is 219-838-5076 I would be happy to help out.

 I have a friend in Iowa who would like some help with cortana. She can get the weather, but I think that is about it.

She had some dreadful computer advice, and then some high-handed computer help, if you can call it that. So I think now she has both the win 7 and win 10 computers running.

Any help for her with her cortana commands would be so much appreciated.

I have never seen Cortana, so can't help her much.

Thanks so much.

coffee makers

heather albright
 

Hay, I had a k-cup machine but, wanted something smaller; we lack counter space woe! SO I was wondering if anyone knows of a good coffee maker with a cool wall for poring! I have been e-mailing  Hamilton beact; mr. coffee  and black and decker. I have not received a response; guess my question did not warrant a response woe! There is 2 people in the house but, I used to have a 6 cup machine but, it bit the dust! So anyone out there that might have a machine that has a cool wall and has buttons instead of minues? Cheers Heather

Hi,
I think you have to empty the folder before it can be deleted.

Re: network connection

George McCoy
 

First, make sure the ethernet driver is installed.

Press windows key plus x.

When the menu opens, press m for device manager.

Tab once to the desktop treeview.

Down arrow about ten times to network adapters.

Press right arrow to expand it.

Doown arrow to the ethernet connection.  It's probably an Intel device.

Press enter to open its properties.

Read the information there to see if windows thinks the device is working properly.

If the driver is missing, you won't see the ethernet connection in the device manager. In that case, I would contact Kevin and see if he can either send you the driver or tell you where you can get it.

If the device is present, you can try updating the driver.

Shift tab once to get to the tabs.  You will be on the general tab.

Right arrow once to the driver tab.

Tab to the update driver option, press enter and follow the instructions.

If the driver was present and there is no update, you will need to go through the settings for the ethernet connection to see if anything seems amiss.

Press windows key plus i for settings.

Type ethernet in the search box and press enter.

You should see two results; ethernet settings and find and fix problems with your network adapter.

Run the find and fix problems option and follow the instructions.

If no problems are found, go through the ethernet settings to see if anything obvious jumps out at you.

If all else fails, contact Kevin.  He's very good about support after the sale, especially when dealing with hardware issues like this.

I like to think I'm pretty knowledgable about the windows OS and hardware in general and when I encountered issues with Kevin's computers that were beyond me, he jumped right in with the answers.


Hth,

George

Hi all,
I just bought another machine from Kevin and having trouble getting it hooked up to my network.  The first one went right on when I plugged it in; but this one isn't seeing my network.  It's a windows 10 computer with a wired lan connection.  There's probably some kind of wizzard to access in the settings?  Could someone who knows this stuff give me some pointers, please?  Thank you.

One thing about that, though, is that you have to carry around more than one gadget, and that also presumes that you can use one of those I devices.  Pam.

I think these days its a rip-off especially if you don't have the money for the high-priced notetakers.just get a braille me for $500, pair it with a $250 iPad and you pretty much have the same thing as a $4000 or $5000 brailleNote touch, but with many more features.

Right now I'm using interserver.net. You pay the same price each time you renew. I always recommend keeping domain registrars separate from hosting, and I've done that myself ever since I got my first domain 15 years ago.
