Hello,


I am not much for playing Games on the Computer.  But when I do play, I
would love to play Backgammon, if there was such a Game that is Screen
Reader friendly.


I also enjoy Text Adventure games, like the old Info Comm games from the
1980's!  yeah, Stone Age stuff, but still great fun.


I would love to play an American Style Football game against another
player, other than playing against the Computer.

Re: using mp3 gain

Steve Matzura
 

A few MP3Gain basics:


In the program's post-installation (default) state, the gain is set to 89% which is jut fine for 99% of needs. I work on a station that wants 92%, and that's easily accompllished by editing the field labeled "Target normal volume." I think, but won't swear to it, that the field after "Target normal volume" is for small increments when you use arrows to scroll the values in the "Target normal volume" field, the default being 1.5%


To load a file or list of files, use CTRL/F.


To load an entire folder,uuse CTRL/D.


You can analyze a file or folder before applying gain to it, positive or negative, by choosing any of the items on the Analysis menu. Track analysis should be obvious; album analysis means analyze everything on the displayed list of files as if it were an album, applying gain such that each track's level has the same relation to the others that it did before gain is applied. What this means in practice is to analyze all tracks in the list, find out exactly how much to raise or lower the loudest one, then apply that delta to every track. Otherwise, every track gets raised according to its relation to the target volume level. If one track analyzes to 85%, it gets raised to 89.5% (1.5%*3); if another analyzes to 91%, it gets lowered to 89.5%. But in the case of analyzing as if it were an album, the track at 91% would be lowered by 1.5%, and so would the track at 85%.


You can apply gain changes without analyzing them first from the "Modify gain" menu. Two of the choices on that menu correspond directly with choices of the same names on the Analysis menu. I've used MP3Gain for twenty years and still don't know what "Apply constant gain" does.


Hope this helps.

Okay I've downloaded and installed mp3 gain but how do I use it? It looks simple when I open it but I tried to paste an mp3 file into the list view I found and nothing happened. I also tried pasting it where it said edit 0 with no luck. Help please. I'll also need to know how to get it to work.

Re: Outlook Express installation question

Mike B
 

Hi Vicki,
 
In short, Yes, you can run the installer over the top of the existing installation, but I'll let Carlos explain this to you a little better, and here he is!
From: Carlos
I'm guessing you used the installer for the last free version.  Sorry there's one minor point I always forget about that installer.  Basically, during
the installation, the Protected Storage component has to be updated.  The Protected Storage component is responsible for remembering account passwords. 
Unfortunately, in the installer for the last free version the checkbox which insures the Protected Storage component gets updated is unchecked by default for
some reason.  Just reinstall it and make sure the Protected Storage checkbox is checked.  Don't forget to run the installer as administrator and reboot
after the installation is complete.  After you reboot and run Outlook Express, it will ask for your account passwords one final time, but after that it
should remember them for subsequent sessions.
Carlos

Hi,

 

I am thinking that I need to reinstall my Outlook Express because of a protected storage corruption issue. Can I reinstall the program right over the top of the old one?

So choose a different directory than your Documents folder, as you said it’s titled 0 files, so select it instead.

but the problem is that the my documents folder does not have anything under it, and if I select all sub folders, that means all the  files  in the my documents folder and all sub folders will be converted, which is not what I want to do.

 

Basically, I have a folder in my documents that is called 0 files to convert.  that folder contains other files.  I wish to covert all files in the 0 files to convert folder and all sub folders within that folder.

Hi Keith,
Next to the "add files" button, there is an "add folders" button. You
can type the pathname in there or select browse to access a treeview.
Once selected, check the "include all subfolders" option.
Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Damien.

I wonder if Scentsy has related products you're looking for.  There is a blind or visually impaired who has a business with them.  I don't have her info off the top of my head, but if you're interested, I'll look for it again.

Online Service Ideas

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I've been thinking about some things people can do online for certain kinds of social gatherings. You may have heard of the My Local Meetups service, where people can join or create groups for a specific interest, such as fishing, going to movies together, etc. But do you know if there's a My online meetups, so to speak, where we can get together with like-minded people on platforms like Zoom? For example, I would especially enjoy meeting with sighted people who can help me learn to build electronic projects via video so they can guide me to place parts correctly onto a base grid, or it can be just a group who enjoy goofing around with technology devices.

Another idea is, does anyone know if there's such a thing as a kind of online software mall where developers sell their apps, especially those that are accessible?

If not these two services, do you have any sugestions for starting things like that? Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
