Re: timer repeat.

Steven Johnson
 

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.

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

Penny Golden
 

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.

If this is anything like the Facebook desktop app, it's not worth the effort. The best way I've found to send and receive messages through Facebook on a PC is by going to https://mbasic.facebook.com/home.php?ref_component=mbasic_home_logo&ref_page=XEventsDashboardHomeController&refid=25. When you get to this page, simply press Alt plus 4, and you'll be on a page where you can view and send messages.

Re: powered USB hubs

chris judge
 

It might not be square either. I have one at home that has a connecter that goes in to the hub that is flat, similar to the connecters found on the cables for some portable external hard drives. Look for either a square port on the hub, or a flat, elongated slot.

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,
Rick

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.

Troy

Thanks Richard, I found the slot on the hub to plug the cord into that goes to the computer.

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.

Plug the power corde in and the cable with the ust on both ends plug one end in your computer, and the other in any ust port on the device, but not the 3 quick charge ports.

Then you should be able to to to windows key I and find it in the drives list.

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

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.

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
