What file format are you using?

MP3Gain does a stellar job of just this, but only on MP3 files, as the name implies.  I also have never tried to assess its accessibility.

Exactly.   There is no point in removing anything that ships with an operating system.  It's simple enough to let it lie fallow.

There are lots of things from previous versions of Windows that still ship with Windows 10, but where those are not placed "front and center" anymore.  Apparently Windows 10, Version 2004, is now hiding Paint if you do a completely clean install, but it stays around if you have a shortcut for it and do an upgrade.  It's still not gone, though, you have to turn the feature back on.  They're now pushing Paint 3D.

Notepad, WordPad, and all kinds of other little programs still come with Windows 10 but you have to search for them rather than having desktop shortcuts or start menu shortcuts created automatically.  And, of course, if you don't use them you don't remove them, they just lie fallow consuming some minuscule amount of disc space.

Program for Leveling Volume

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Does anyone know if there's a program that will level the volume of various sounds and sound files?  What I mean is, I have thousands of sound files and songs, but many of them play at different volume levels and I would like a program that can adjust them to all play at the same volume level.  All input is greatly appreciated.  Thanks mooy moocho.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

No, it is not.  Not even close.  And File Explorer (formerly Windows Explorer) has zero dependencies on Internet Explorer.  I don't know whether IE uses any common libraries from File Explorer, though.

Hi all,

Anna, you did not offend me at all! I'm just angry that you were given such inaccurate information. The person from the CNIB should either clarify just exactly what was meant or refrain from spreading false information.

Re: BARD App Inquiry

Lisa Belville
 

Ron, you should be able to download your books directly from the app on to your phone.  Once you find a title you like you can double-tap on the button with the name and author and the app will ask you if you want to download.  Double tap Okay and the download should start.


Alternatively, you can double tap on the button giving more info about the title and swipe to the download button from within that dialog.


You'll hear a sound like a door bell when the download is finished.  Your newly downloaded book will be listed under the audio books portion of the bookshelf tab.


You need to use the same pass word and user name you use with BARD, otherwise it won't work.

Re: using the orbet in Canada

Gene
 

Literally almost every time I see a statement preceeded by I was told, I heard, or variants, on lists like these, the statement is either completely false, or so misleading that it might as well be. What you are told in casual conversation or perhaps more than casual cannot be relied on unless you know the reputation of the person who told you for accuracy. There is an enormous amount of bad information passed around on the Internet. and, as Ann says, consider whether the information makes sense.

Hi all,

This is in reference to the person who asked if the rumor was true that
you couldn't use an Orbit Reader or Writer in Canada. This is where
you begin to learn to think like an adult, a reasoning human being.
First, The Orbit Reader is just a braille display. The Orbit Writer is
just a smart keyboard that connects to a computer or a cell phone via
bluetooth. They only connect to the Internet via a device like a
computer or a cell phone. It would be difficult to tell if the braille
display or the braille keyboard were connected to something.

Second, why would the Canadian Government, much less Orbit Research
care if you used an Orbit Reader in Canada?

Third, where did you get this information? Who was the source? How
reliable is that source. No, I don't mean is the person a family
member or friend or minister or counselor. I mean how reliable has
their information been in the past? I don't care if it's your mom.
How accurate has it been? What kind of reputation does your
information source have among others? What is the history of this
information source?

C'mon, think, use that brain of yours. That's why He created it, after
all. Think! Reason!

Far as I can tell this is a false rumor. It has no basis in truth.
Think! Evaluate! Trust your judgment! <arrrghgh> And they wonder
why people believe that masks are against your civil rights or that X
group is trying to take over the world?

Re: using the orbet in Canada

There is at least one dealer in Canada, Canadian Assistive Technologies, that sells Orbit products. I've never dealt with them myself, but their website is at:

https://canasstech.com/

As for the CNIB, I've found they aren't always the most reliable source of technology info.

Re: BARD App Inquiry

Greg Wocher
 

Hello,
There is a get books tab in the app. Once you are on that tab you will find a button that says something like go to the bard web page. Click on this button, then find the search box. Search for your book and once you find it you can add it to your wish list. Once the book is added into your wish list you can then download it in the app.

I don't recall the message referred to. But it may be that Internet Explorer is still a part of the operating system as in earlier versions of Windows. It does no harm if it isn't being used and there sites, now and then, where it works better enough to be advantageous to use. It is a mistake to remove it.
