Your are correct.Pressing 1 is correct. But, you have to do a long press of the 1. The Stream will say "Enter user guide". To get out of it, long press the 1 again.

Re: UPS my choice help needed

Gerald Levy
 

Troy, even if you specify instructions on UPS My Choice that the driver knock on your door whenever a package is delivered or send you a text message to confirm delivery, there is no guarantee that these instructions will be followed. The best you can do is to track the progress of your package on the day it is supposed to be delivered.  Enter the UPS tracking number into the Google search field and visit the tracking results page, and refresh it frequently, like every 15 minutes or so, and as soon as you see that your package has been delivered, go outside yourself and fetch it if the driver does not deliver it to the front door and knock.  What really bothers me about this new UPS policy of not delivering to the front door is that the driver is supposed to obtain a signature from the customer to confirm delivery, but instead, some lazy drivers will simply dropthe the package outside  the residence, scrawl a signature themselves, and bolt off, and there is really nothing you can do about it because UPS customer service will give you a run around even if you demand to speak to a supervisor.  Good luck.

Hi all,

I signed up for UPS my choice but when I log in I don't see anywhere to make changes. There's an area for driver instructions but when I clicked there nothing opened up where I could put any instructions, so I had my sighted mom look and she even found an area where it said that I could receive a text around the time my package is delivered but she said there was no way to enter my phone number there. Nor by the way did she see any way to change the amount of time ahead of time that a text would be sent, all that seemed to be available was one hour but from what she read to me it sounded like that could be changed.

I'm expecting a package to be delivered this Tuesday, and I think I mentioned earlier in the week that the UPS drivers usually will just drop packages inside my gate and I don't know they're there, so I called UPS earlier this week and ask them to add a note to have the driver knock on the door, but they said they couldn't do that and they told me to sign up for the my choice. If anybody can help me with where to go to either give the driver special instructions, or how to set it up so I receive a text shortly before the package is delivered so I know to expect it I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Yes, you can.  However, I haven’t seen XP in so long that I can’t remember how to get to the command prompt.  I seem to remember that it is located under accessories.  Maybe go to the start menu, go to all programs, and I think accessories was near the bottom of the list.  Once you get to the command prompt though, you can type chkdsk /f /r e: or whatever your card’s drive letter is, and chkdsk will try to find and repair bad/corrupt sectors on the card.  It seems to be worth a shot anyhow.

Good morning Kay.  I had an SD card do that to me about a month ago.  My computer wouldn’t let me open it, and I couldn’t get JAWS to read the actual volume label.  I was able to get at my documents and make the card work again with the repair functionality of chkdsk under Windows 10.  First, make sure that you know the drive letter of your card; for example, f:.  Do Windows key X, then arrow down to Windows Power Shell Admin, or instead hit the letter A.  A command prompt will open.  Type chkdsk /f /r f: and hit enter.  I don’t think it can do any harm, and it may work.  It takes a while to do its thing.

I never use NVDA up arrow; I find it much more convenient to use numpad 8.  So I had forgotten that command.  As far as NVDA up arrow is concerned, it is much better to be in object review if you are going to use it.  It is more reliable because by default, NVDA will always move to the object you move to.

As well as Howard's method, which will move through the whole cell contents, with NVDA, you can press NVDA+up arrow twice quickly (or if using laptop keyboard layout, NVDA+L twice quickly) which will spell the current line (press just once to read the text rather than spell it) - so you can read the first line within a cell without going into edit mode - names and phone numbers are probably only on one line each.

UPS my choice help needed

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I signed up for UPS my choice but when I log in I don't see anywhere to make changes. There's an area for driver instructions but when I clicked there nothing opened up where I could put any instructions, so I had my sighted mom look and she even found an area where it said that I could receive a text around the time my package is delivered but she said there was no way to enter my phone number there. Nor by the way did she see any way to change the amount of time ahead of time that a text would be sent, all that seemed to be available was one hour but from what she read to me it sounded like that could be changed.

I'm expecting a package to be delivered this Tuesday, and I think I mentioned earlier in the week that the UPS drivers usually will just drop packages inside my gate and I don't know they're there, so I called UPS earlier this week and ask them to add a note to have the driver knock on the door, but they said they couldn't do that and they told me to sign up for the my choice. If anybody can help me with where to go to either give the driver special instructions, or how to set it up so I receive a text shortly before the package is delivered so I know to expect it I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Troy

I have had many computers of most brands, and have always removed the brand named software, it’s the first thing I do, and have never experienced any issues.

My understanding is that some computer manufacturers use their software for certain functions and that the Windows software may not support the functions or may not be available or may have to be configured.  We'll see what others say.  I don't know enough about the subject to do other than say that I don't think it is a good idea to just delete things without knowing what they do, if the computer is currently using any of them for any function you want, such as your wireless connections, and how you get Windows to take over any functions you might lose. 

 

Just in general, some, perhaps many people, delete things just because they don't want them.  I very strongly believe that things shouldn't be deleted unless you know what they are and that you will never need or want them.

If you want a comprehensive tutorial on using the victor stream, I suggest purchasing the tutorial from mystic access It’s brilliant, as are all of their products.

Chromebooks have their own screen reader. It’s called chromevox. To launch it, hold the control and the alt key, then press the letter z. You can run chromevox from the initial set-up screen. The set up of the chromebook with chromevox is accessible.

Hi,

Is NVDA compatible with the chrome book?

Thanks.
