grabbing videos from animations

heather albright
 

Hay, now my teacher is using

animations that have audio. Pontes Media Downloader is not picking these up. Is there another way? They call them info graphics. I have the link for coping with stress. I thought it would grab it like the other videos.

Re: wifi boosters?

Troy Burnham
 

I don't know what router I have, just that my cable company is Spectrum and I think they provided the router.

I'm only using voice, no video and it's only voice that drops. I can't hear them, and I assume they can't hear me although since I can't hear them I've never tried to see if they can hear me or not.

The team talk server I'm connecting to is on the net, it's part of out-of-sight.net.

The wall between me and the router when I'm outside is mostly brick, there is a big window nearby but we keep a metal hurricane shutter pulled down over it.

I've never checked the number of bars I have, but inside I have 3 wifi bars and when I have checked the bars for my wifi connection I usually have 1 or 2.

5, how many bars of wifi signal do you have when you're 30 feet away from the router?

6, does it work on a cell connection?

7, does voice drop completely where you can't here anyone and they can't here you? or does only one side of the connection drop?

Voice communications are not as demanding on bandwidth as some might think but you do have to have a completely solid connection to make it work.



Thanks.

Hi all,

I don't know if it's a wifi booster that I need but I chat with friends using the team talk app on my iPhone 7 every morning and if I go outside, even though I'm no more than 30 feet from my router my connection to the server gets dropped quite often for a few seconds at a time.

I've called Spectrum and they've come and checked my router, once they said there was no problems and the second time they changed the router, but I still have the problem. Would a wifi booster help this problem and if so which one if the best? Btw when I'm using team talk to chat online is the only time that I have this problem of my connection dropping, and the further away I get from the router the problem seems to get worse.

Thanks.

Re: wifi boosters?

Troy Burnham
 

I know that when I leave the house, once I get out of range of my wifi the cell connection takes over. I've never tried chatting on the cell connection, not recently anyway, so I don't know if I have the same problem then or not. I'll be chatting on team talk tomorrow morning so I will switch over to the cell connection and see if that helps.

Dual boot WinXP and Win10 #a11y

sergiawstu@...
 

I'm planning to dual boot Windows XP and Windows 10. My computer would be compatible with XP but there are an exception, my SATA Hard Disk. I found in a Spanish page an unattended Windows XP which don't have any drivers. I collected all realtec audio driver inf files and SATA drivers, but NLite don't allow me to use it, gives me some errors and apparently don't show me any window to search the folder of the drivers. I see another possibility, use a Talking Preinstallation Environment. I read in this group that there were a Windows XP Talking Preinstallation Environment and a Windows 7 Talking Preinstallation Environment, but that link don't work. What TWPE can I use to install Windows XP without problems? Before installing it, I will Install Windows 10 in another partition.

Re: wifi boosters?

You say it’s the only time you have this problem. It is the only time your connection slows enough to cause problems with this activity. Other activities you do evidently don't require as much speed and the farther away you get from the radio signal of the router, the more the speed slows down.

I doubt the behavior is different from other peoples regarding routers. It might save you a lot of time and inconvenience if you ask about things before doing something like changing a router. I suspect that others would tell you that you are doing one of the most demanding things on speed when you use such a service, carrying audio and video in two directions in real time.

Re: wifi boosters?

 

Hi Troy,
I would recommend a Wi-Fi extender. This will allow your Wi-Fi to be pushed out farther. As for brands I’m not sure.
Hope this helps,

changing e-mail associated with yahoo account

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I created a yahoo account so I can play fantasy sports but I no longer use the e-mail address I used to create the account. Does anybody know how I change that address to my current address? I don't think I can create a new account because I'm already in a fantasy baseball league that was created before all of the lockdowns because of covid19.

Thanks.

A few additional points. Firstly, a new version of smart things appears to have come out, which might have resolved some issues.

You can then set these options for wash and dry this way, thus bypassing the interface of the app or control panel.

Hi all,

So a few weeks ago, I got the samsung washer and dryer installed in my apartment, and want to share my experience. So, pairing the washer and dryer to the app is accessible, but you need someone to describe where the smart control button is, as you have to press it several times during the process. When controling a wash, while selecting a wash is accessible, it doesn't seem to be possible to select options such as temperature, rince, spin etc. You can click on the buttons, but in most cases, nothing happens. And sometimes, when something does happen, you can only see the top and lowest option, for example, with temperature, you see the hot, and cold options. Also, downloaded cycles are not labeled, so they are all read as "," button. Additionally, I can only see the rince, spin, temperature, soil level, and super speed options in the controls. I cannot see several other options that the washer has on the panel, such as steam, pre-soak, delay end, alarm status etc. As several sighted reviews say the app offers a way to control all options, I would assume I haven't been able to see those other options.

Now these issues have their solutions. It is actually easier to control the washer through the panel, as the touch buttons are accessible. There is a letter s on the right side of the panel, right to the left of it is the start button, above S is a p, to the left to that is the power button. To the left of the start button, unlabeled is the smart control button. The right top corner of the panel has an unlabeled delay end button. Towards the middle of the panel are two unlabeled buttons, pre-soak and steam. Pre-soak is directly above steam. You can find these, as if you press one, and turn it on, you will hear an ascending tone, and a descending tone when it is off. At the bottom of the panel, are four buttons indicated with a single braille dot. The one to the left is temperature, the one next to it is rince, the one next to that one is spin, and the final one is soil level. As you press each one, a tone that goes higher the level is played. When a program locks in an option so it cannot be changed, you can hear an error tone. You can hear this yourself by turning the dial to the sanatize cycle and trying to change the temperature. There are also super speed and alarm on/off buttons, which I believe are at the buttom part of the panel near the program buttons. The super steam button might be near the bottom right of the panel. The alarm status saves across poweroff, so if you turn it off, it stays that way until you turn it back on. The dial of the machine clicks into place, and is fully digital, not analog. See it as a button functioning as arrow keys. When you power on and off, the washer, the place where the dial is set at is reset back to the original. which is the normal cycle. The machine also beeps when you turn the dial, and plays a different tone when you wrap back to the beginning of the list, the normal cycle. To resolve the app configuration issue, I turn on the app, power on the washer, and use the app to know what program the dial is turned to. As you turn the dial, swipe back and forth and the program showing on your phone as the selected one will update along with the display on the washer. Note that you don't have to enable smart control to see this. The monitoring function of the app is sufficient. To resolve the downloaded cycle issue, you can use several methods. You can iether go to set default downloaded cycle in the app, which will allow to read the order of the cycles, and chose the cycles in the cycle list according to the same order, or change the default downloaded cycle on the panel, and then configure the wash options from there. The second method is superior, as it doesn't require memorization and allows you to change wash options.

I contacted Samsung about the accessibility issues with the app, but I was told the standard things, to reinstall the app, to try to re-add the washer, and they were very insistant that I provide a screen recording log of the errors, despite me telling them many times that the issues did not generate any visible errors, but were due to the app not behaving expectedly. I then left a low rating for the app, and received a response from the developer, telling me to file an issue on family hub, which I did.

Hope this really lengthy e-mail is of help to someone.

I also forgot to mention that these things I said about the washer also apply exactly to the matching dryer as well, though the options and their layout is probably different for the dryer. I idn't try to know all of them, as I usually don't change alot of options with my dry, but I think the first of the four braille buttons at the bottom is the dryness level, the second is temperature, the third is time dry.

The one to the left is temperature, the one next to it is rince, the one next to that one is spin, and the final one is soil level. As you press each one, a tone that goes higher the level is played. When a program locks in an option so it cannot be changed, you can hear an error tone. You can hear this yourself by turning the dial to the sanatize cycle and trying to change the temperature. There are also super speed and alarm on/off buttons, which I believe are at the buttom part of the panel near the program buttons. The super steam button might be near the bottom right of the panel. The alarm status saves across poweroff, so if you turn it off, it stays that way until you turn it back on. The dial of the machine clicks into place, and is fully digital, not analog. See it as a button functioning as arrow keys. When you power on and off, the washer, the place where the dial is set at is reset back to the original. which is the normal cycle. The machine also beeps when you turn the dial, and plays a different tone when you wrap back to the beginning of the list, the normal cycle. To resolve the app configuration issue, I turn on the app, power on the washer, and use the app to know what program the dial is turned to. As you turn the dial, swipe back and forth and the program showing on your phone as the selected one will update along with the display on the washer. Note that you don't have to enable smart control to see this. The monitoring function of the app is sufficient. To resolve the downloaded cycle issue, you can use several methods. You can iether go to set default downloaded cycle in the app, which will allow to read the order of the cycles, and chose the cycles in the cycle list according to the same order, or change the default downloaded cycle on the panel, and then configure the wash options from there. The second method is superior, as it doesn't require memorization and allows you to change wash options.

I contacted Samsung about the accessibility issues with the app, but I was told the standard things, to reinstall the app, to try to re-add the washer, and they were very insistant that I provide a screen recording log of the errors, despite me telling them many times that the issues did not generate any visible errors, but were due to the app not behaving expectedly. I then left a low rating for the app, and received a response from the developer, telling me to file an issue on family hub, which I did.

Hope this really lengthy e-mail is of help to someone.

I also forgot to mention that these things I said about the washer also apply exactly to the matching dryer as well, though the options and their layout is probably different for the dryer. I idn't try to know all of them, as I usually don't change alot of options with my dry, but I think the first of the four braille buttons at the bottom is the dryness level, the second is temperature, the third is time dry.

Hi all,

A few additional points. Firstly, a new version of smart things appears to have come out, which might have resolved some issues. Secondly, the app can be paired ith voice assistants, such as bixby, cortana, Alexa, and Google assistant. You can then  set these options for wash and dry this way, thus bypassing the interface of the app or control panel.

But all in all, I must say tthis washer and dryer set is honestly the most accessible touch screen applyance I have seen. Despite app accessibility issues, the audio feedback and app monitoring makes it possible to use the machines independantly to a large extent, and even totally.

Hi all,

So a few weeks ago, I got the samsung washer and dryer installed in my apartment, and want to share my experience. So, pairing the washer and dryer to the app is accessible, but you need someone to describe where the smart control button is, as you have to press it several times during the process. When controling a wash, while selecting a wash is accessible, it doesn't seem to be possible to select options such as temperature, rince, spin etc. You can click on the buttons, but in most cases, nothing happens. And sometimes, when something does happen,  you can only see the top and lowest option, for example, with temperature, you see the hot, and cold options. Also, downloaded cycles are not labeled, so they are all read as "," button. Additionally, I can only see the rince, spin, temperature, soil level, and super speed options in the controls. I cannot see several other options that the washer has on the panel, such as steam, pre-soak, delay end, alarm status etc. As several sighted reviews say the app offers a way to control all options, I would assume I haven't been able to see those other options.

Now these issues have their solutions. It is actually easier to control the washer through the panel, as the touch buttons are accessible. There is a letter s on the right side of the panel, right to the left of it is the start button, above S is a p, to the left to that is the power button.   To the left of the start button, unlabeled is the smart control button. The right top corner of the panel has an unlabeled  delay end button. Towards the middle of the panel are two unlabeled buttons, pre-soak and steam. Pre-soak is directly above steam. You can find these, as if you press one, and turn it on, you will hear an ascending tone, and a descending tone when it is off. At the bottom of the panel, are four buttons indicated with a single braille dot.

Re: can't do a complete system restore in windows 10

Gene,

I have sighted assistance but neither of our computer literacy is high enough that I feel comfortable going through safe mode to do a system restore. I'll try calling Microsoft accessibility tomorrow and see if they can help, but the last time I called them a couple of months ago it sounded like they were shut down because of the pandemic.

Can windows defender be disabled? I just disabled malware bytes and
tried the system restore and the same thing happened, IE system restore
couldn't be completed and the message told me that a file couldn't be

All I have running as protection is windows defender and the paid version of malware bytes however, is there a way to disable either one of these or both so I can try the system restore again? Btw I opened malware bytes from my desktop and unchecked all of the protections that were checked but of course when things came back after the aborted restore everything was checked again.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Hi Joseph,
I don't know about Mailman, I always found that a pain unless it was already provided on a webhost platform. But I can totally agree with you in so far as googlegroups versus groups.io. Groups.io all the way.
Cheers,
