Hi all,

No, apparently it is in .pdf or .docx. Get thee to APH and download Send-To-Braille and you can convert the .docx file handily.

I have no objection to such books but for a lot of users, who only want to attend meetings, don't want to host any, and probably don't even need an account, they don't need to know much. Probably a five or ten minute small tutorial or perhaps the equivalent of three or four pages in a document would tell them all they need.
I should clarify that it may be that a separate five or ten minute tutorial and a separate text file of about the length I am estimating might be necessary for different ways of using the system, such as on a Windows computer, on a mobile phone, and perhaps there are other ways. I haven't looked at the books being offered but if they are long or of moderate length and if they don't have a section in the beginning for the casual user, they may discourage people from using Zoom because they may get the impression that for the casual user, much more needs to be known than actually does.

I don't know if it is reliable if you use the same program but there are programs in which this proprietary JAWS command is designed to work and those for which such provision hasn't been made. this is not difficult to do using the program itself. Different programs may have different ways of doing it. Since this is a never-ending and perennial problem among a lot of blind e-mail program users, it might be a good idea if specific instructions for specific programs are given by those who use the programs and know they are reliable.

Yes, using Jaws! Open the message you wish to respond to. Then press
Jaws-Key+Insert+R, the Sender's E-mail address will automatically be
Jaws-Key+Insert+placed
in the "TO" Field and you can start typing right away in the message body.
If you're REPLYING TO A SENDER off of a mailing list, be sure that the
mailing IS NOT SET to REPLY TO LIST only, else REPLYING TO SENDER WILL NOT
work.
There's one caveat: Be sure to check and make sure that the E-mail address
in the "TO" field DOES NOT contain additional extraneous characters; if it
does, your message will not go through and you'll get a bounce. In my
tests, the addition of extraneous characters do occur with Verizon, AOL,
Yahoo and a few others.

Ann,

Based on the message that you are quoting I don't agree with your response. The book being discussed covers Windows and iOS but doesn't cover Android devices. If a user only uses Android devices then it is reasonable that he or she wouldn't have a need for this book as it doesn't address the user's operating system of choice. Zoom may be available for most of today's operating systems but if the book in question doesn't address the one you're using then it's not for everyone.

While we have the option to adjust the same settings in iOS, unlike Google, iOS does not save your contacts into Google. So when you are expecting to hear the colors name you were here call from and then they either have to say their name or you have to go online and program it into the Google contacts. I have this feature disabled As you will never know if one is going to say their name or not.

Google Voice numbers are free! Besides Google Voice, there are apps like
2nd Line, Sideline, Burner, TextNow, etc. that are similarly situated. Some
of these apps have ads but, in general, they are usable should you seek to
have more than one phone number.

One caveat: These apps work over WI-FI and you don't even need a SIM card
to deploy any of them.

The apps discussed here are available from the Google Play Store, can't
speak for anything iOS!!

Re: New Book on Using Zoom Now Available From the Carroll Center

Vispero has an archived webinar on using zoom, and although it is geared for jaws users, it will teach all you need to know for the basic user who only wants to attend meetings, and it’s free.

I have no objection to such books but for a lot of users, who only want to attend meetings, don't want to host any, and probably don't even need an account, they don't need to know much.  Probably a five or ten minute small tutorial or perhaps the equivalent of three or four pages in a document would tell them all they need.

 

I should clarify that it may be that a separate five or ten minute tutorial and a separate text file of about the length I am estimating might be necessary for different ways of using the system, such as on a Windows computer, on a mobile phone, and perhaps there are other ways.  I haven't looked at the books being offered but if they are long or of moderate length and if they don't have a section in the beginning for the casual user, they may discourage people from using Zoom because they may get the impression that for the casual user, much more needs to be known than actually does.

That's true.  I often don't read subject lines but that means I sometimes send suggestions that may not be seen by more people.  I'll send a message with a different subject line.

I don't know if it is reliable if you use the same program but there are programs in which this proprietary JAWS command is designed to work and those for which such provision hasn't been made.  this is not difficult to do using the program itself.  Different programs may have different ways of doing it.  Since this is a never-ending and perennial problem among a lot of blind e-mail program users, it might be a good idea if specific instructions for specific programs are given by those who use the programs and know they are reliable.

It's actually insert shift R. The insert key and the jaws key are the same
thing.
It doesn't always work.

"Since Control plus Shift R, also does not work for replying just to the

Yes, using Jaws!  Open the message you wish to respond to.  Then press
Jaws-Key+Insert+R, the Sender's E-mail address will automatically be
Jaws-Key+Insert+placed
in the "TO" Field and you can start typing right away in the message body.
If you're REPLYING TO A SENDER off of a mailing list, be sure that the
mailing IS NOT SET to REPLY TO LIST only, else REPLYING TO SENDER WILL NOT
work. 

There's one caveat:  Be sure to check and make sure that the E-mail address
in the "TO" field DOES NOT contain additional extraneous characters; if it
does, your message will not go through and you'll get a bounce.  In my
tests, the addition of extraneous characters do occur with Verizon, AOL,
Yahoo and a few others.

Re: Looking for a Good USB External Sound Card

Dave
 

Hi guys,


Thanks for the suggestions.  I'll pass them on.


Gene, my friend is not the best when it comes to Computers, or
Electronic in General.  However, he does have a set of Good Ears and he
is worried about the Sound Quality of the Recording of his Vinyl and CD's.


He thinks if he gets a Cheap Card, it won't sound very good etc.


On the other hand, the up Scale Cards have too many features, Buttons, 
Sliders and all kinds of Jack Inputs etc.


Plus for most Cards they come with Drivers, and some times a Software
based Interface where various adjustments can be made to the Sound.


Unfortunately, my friend is 3000 miles away, and he lives alone, and has
very few friends that are able to come to his apartment to help him. 
And they probably would know little about these Cards or how to install
the software.


He asked me to look for a Card, and so am doing that.


He has a nice, old time Stereo that comes from an era when they made
great sounding Stereo Systems, and the Turn Tables were of very High
Quality.


All of his Vinyl, and he has 2 or 3 thousand Vinyl Albums he wants to
convert to MP3.


But, Thanks again for the Suggestions.  I'll pass them on and he will
decide what he wants to do.


Grumpy Dave

Just back your contacts up to Gmail, that should fix it.

While we have the option to adjust the same settings in iOS, unlike Google, iOS does not save your contacts into Google. So when you are expecting to hear the colors name you were here call from and then they either have to say their name or you have to go online and program it into the Google contacts. I have this feature disabled As you will never know if one is going to say their name or not.

Hello,
Google voice is another phone service. You will use your existing number which will become your Google voice number. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi,

A google voice number as stupid as this may sound is it just a voice mail type of thing, or can people call you on it if you don’t want them to have your number.

How do I obtain one?

it very much depends on how much of a price/budget freak one is.
certainly for me, price is one of the least important factors.

It sounds as though you are discussing an audiohile or professional soundcard.  I don't know what the least expensive sound cards are that have line-in inputs.  When I was looking for one years ago, I didn't find any below about seventy U.S. dollars at the store where I was looking.  But that needs discussion and I'm not saying there aren't much cheaper ones.  Whatever the case, you don't need to spend a lot of money to get very good results.  I would be much more concerned about the quality of the tone arm of the turntable, is it a low mass tone arm, and the quality of the cartridge than on spending a lot of money on a sound card.  There may be a price below which it isn't wise to go but I really doubt there is a need to spend more than a maximum of about seventy dollars, if that.

it has xlr, rather than RCA inputs, but adapters or leads for that can very

not only does it have hardware level controls, but it also has a rather nice
set of optical compressors built in.

Hello,


I am looking for a Friend, who is also Visualy Impaired, who is
Converting a Huge Vinal and CD library of Music to MP3.


He is looking to buy an External Sound Card that has the ability to let
him connect his House Stereo System to the Sound Card, because he
intends to use his High quality turn Table instead of some Cheap turn Table.


So the Card will need to have a couple of RCA jacks for Left and Right
IN coming signal.


Anyone know of a High Quality External Sound Card that would work for my
friend?


Thanks ahead of time for any reply,
