Re: disinfecting braille materials

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

If you get them from RNIB, they've already been disinfected. They do this as a matter of course with their braille materials because they send them all over the world. I don't know how they do it, though.

Hi group,

I had info for a WordPress list for BVI but, as my outlook 365 periodically deletes some of my emails and throws them into the ether, I need subscription info for such a list.

There is a skill called Interval Notice that will sort of do that. Tell her Highness, Alexa enable interval notice. Then, you can say something like, Alexa tell interval notice to set a 2 minute interval 5 times. Every 2 minutes on mine, she said "Time." You can read about it here.

Try this.

Tell her lady-ship: set a timer for fifteen seconds.

This is just for trial purposes, you understand.

When it goes off you can say: ay lady, repeat the timer.

That way you eliminate the command: stop the timer, at least.

I wish we could have her announce the time every 5 minutes, let us say; so that we could keep on track as we're getting out in the morning.

I tried that, but when I ask her to repeat the timer, she asks, for how long?  That could work, but in the meantime I'm making settings adjustments to the treadmill and this could get a little tedious, talking to her and adjusting the treadmill, but if all else fails I could do it.  Thank you very much for your input.

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.

Re: powered USB hubs

Nancy Hill
 

I have a powered hub.  It has 2 cords.  One cord is attached to the hub and has an electrical prong end that will go into the wall.  The other cord goes into the hub on the same side as the longer electric power cord, but it has a usb connection on the other end that will connect to the usb port on the computer. Also, in my case, the cord with the usb port on one end is a round cord and the electric cord is flatish.


Sorry if you have already been helped,  but I am just now reading my email.

Hi Troy,
Are the connectors on the USB cable the same?
Typically a device USB cable has a flat connector on one end,which goes into
a USB port on a computer,
and a square connector on the other end that goes into the device.
The USB port on the hub for this square connector may not be apparent at
first look, but typically is next to the power connector.

HTH,

Hi all,

I bought a powered USB hub but I can't figure out how to connect it to
my computer. I have an extra cord that has a USB plug on one end that I
assume plugs into the computer but there's no place on the hub for the
other end to plug into since the only nonUSB slot is where the power
cord is plugged. Can anybody help? Btw the brand is Sabrent if that
matters, and there are 10 USB ports 3 of which are quick charge ports if
that matters.

Thanks.

Hi All,
 
I would like my 3rd generation Amazon Dot to repeat or give me a
notification for a certain amount of time.  What I mean is I'm creating my
own workout program on my treadmill and I would like the Dot to notify me
every 4 minutes for a 48  to 60 minute time frame.  If this can be done, I
don't know, but I certainly wasn't able to give the correct command with my
previous attempts.  If one of you knows the correct verbiage to tell her,
would you please tell me how I would ask her to do this?  All help is
greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

Re: Repeating a Time Reminder With a 3rd Gen Dot

I have not found any way to make her give us repeated times.  Like, say, five minutes elapsed. 

I would love to be wrong on this; but the only way I see it happening is your setting your alarm for 4 minutes; and then re-setting it, every time it goes off.

I sure wish it were otherwise.
