Re: Tetrus for brailleNote apex?

Hi
I tried to play it a few times last night. I don't understand it. Do you know the rules, so you can explain to me how this works? Anytime I want to play, I must enter the product key you gave me. I must enter it each time. How can I avoid this if it's not suppose to happen?

Re: Credit card technology questions

Ann Parsons <akp@...>
 

Hi all,

Oh good, something about this assertion that the numbers on the card would change didn't sit right with me, didn't make sense. I think my friend is write when he opines that he doesn't know why they call it "common sense" because he hasn't been able to find much of it. <smiling>

Ann P.

Original message:

You won't have changing numbers you will see on the card. See this article:
http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/emv-faq-chip-cards-answers-1264.php <http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/emv-faq-chip-cards-answers-1264.php>
Each transaction involving having the card recognized will cause a unique transaction number to be generated that can't be used again. If a hacker gets that number, he can't use it. The user has nothing to do with the assignment of the number nor does the user have to know it.
The following is not discussed in the article, it is my comments:
Cards would not be designed so that they require the user to read numbers that change on the card. It would require the expense of embedding an LCD in every card along with a battery.

Subject: [TechTalk] Credit card technology questions
My wife and I just got different credit cards. These cards contain
embedded chips allegedly to aid in identifying fraud more quickly.
We had heard somewhere, probably on television, that at some point
credit cards would have embedded chips which would somehow frequently
change the pin on the back of the card which would supposedly go a long
way to prevent fraud. I am writing this post to inquire as to whether
this is rumor or fact regarding frequent automatic changes of the card
pin. If true, does anyone know of any contingency other than sighted
assistance for those of us who are blind who require some means of
reading the pin each time it changes.
Thanks for feedback.

Re: Listening to the radio on 3g? Is it really such agood idea?

Flor Lynch
 

Hi Rajmund.

No it won't. You will be getting 480 kilobytes a minute. Now there are 3600 secs in an hour. One megabyte in 128 Secs or 2 minutes, 8 secs, of use. (Or if you prefers, 960 kilobytes in two minutes, (120 seconds). So you'd have 4800 kilobytes in 10 mins.

Now I'm doing all this in my head! That works out at about 28.8 megabytes in an hour. There are 1024 megabytes in one gigabyte. After 6 hours contant listening, you'll have 172.8 megabytes down. Quite a ways short of one gigabyte. It'll take you around six days at that rate to equal that amount.

Have you a service provider's site on which you can check your bandwith usage? That might be a useful reference point for you to check out. (These stats are usually accessible, once you know where to look.)

Hi Rajmund,

You still may need to ascertain from your provider...

However, I now know that my previous two replies here (apart from

getting
confused between the bit-rate of the stream, and what the
telecomms use as
their measurement (which is bytes/kilobytes/megabytes of data.
Basically,
there are 8 bits in a byte of data. So, at 64 kBps, or kilobits
per second,
you셱e getting 8 kilobytes a second. Thus, in a minute or 60
secs, you get
480 kB (kilobytes). (If the stream were 128kBps, you'd get 960

Yes, go to Settings, General, Accessibility. At the very bottom is a setting where you can define one or more actions that will occur when you triple-click home. Ensure that VoiceOver is selected, and nothing else, unless you want something else from among those choices, and the shortcut will henceforth work.

Re: I Phone accessibility help

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

It definitely takes time and effort to learn to use an iPhone, but many of us have found the effort worthwhile.  Also, be patient with yourself, because this is a very new skill.  You will make lots of mistakes, but this is how we learn.

 

Because this is such a new skill for most of us, training, study and practice are necessary.  There are people you can pay who will provide excellent training, but a less expensive way is to get Anna Dresner’s book from National Braille press.  It is available in several media.  You can learn without it, but you’ll learn a lot better and with less stress with it.

 

There is no getting around learning the gestures.  When you know them, you’re in charge; when you don’t, you are lost and have no control. 

 

There are lots of lists of VoiceOver gestures on the net.  VoiceOver provides a place where you can practice gestures to get them right.  One way to get there is to double-tap with four fingers.  You repeat this gesture to exit.

 

I hope you will put in time to become proficient with the onscreen keyboard for writing.  Sometimes you need to use it. But if you will be doing lots of writing, a lot of people use Bluetooth keyboards, of which there are many. 

 

There are also mailing lists devoted to iOS that you can join.

 

So from here, ask whatever questions you have and people can offer more specific help.

 

Dean

Is there any piece of software or settings, to get unfiltered from a e-mail

Thanks.


I Phone accessibility help

charlie <ckobermann@...>
 

Hello to all,
My name is Charlie Kobermann and I am a owner of a new I Phone 6. I am having problems adapting to using the voice over screen reader to navigate this thing. Anybody got any ideas on how I get acquainted with the screen layout and things like that. Once I understand it I will get better but I can’t seem to figure it out. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you for your consideration.
Charlie Kobermann  



Re: windows10 instal question

I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say you would have to buy a new Windows DVD. You can create an ISO image using the Media Creation Tool and then burn it to a DVD. You can then use that DVD to upgrade any of your machines running Windows 7 or 8. As I said, once you have upgraded and your machine has been registered on the Microsoft servers, you can perform clean installations to your hearts content. You just can't start out with a clean installation. Although you can choose to remove everything during the upgrade process which would be almost like a clean installation. I'm not clear about which part exactly is not fair. Being able to upgrade any machine running Windows 7 or 8 sounds like a fairly reasonable deal to me. If you mean you will not be able to install it for free on a new machine that you may have custom built as an example, that is true, but the fact that they will make some money is inevitable and is how most companies stay in business. I am sure that there will be some way of downloading ISO images even after the free offer expires next year if you purchase a product key. And of course any ISO images/DVDs which you create now will still be usable then as well.

I am so sad to here this. Thanks for clarify. Because this means you
would have to buy a new windows dvd anyway. That is not really fair to
loyl customers. I mean, I want a windows10 that can function in the
same way my other versions did in the sense that I can install them
anywhere from scratch and activate. What if I want to for example put
it into a virtual machine then they actually say it won't work on a
new computer? A very good way to make extra money. So do any of you
know weather it will be possible to download and make a dvd after 29
july next year?

Exactly! Well installing over the top has oftentimes been problematic,
so I figured to get the best out of (then beta) Windows 10, I would do
it from scratch - I'm still amazed there is no way of me now inputting
my Windows 7 key, it would seriously take them all of 10 lines of code
to let me input my Windows 7 key, verify it with Microsoft and kick off
that "register this computer as upgrading to Windows 10" routine...

One positive thing with Windows 10 is that once you're on board, a
couple years down the track when you go to buy a new PC, it will look
identical to your old one (except the software you need to reinstall,
but at least there shouldn't be a learning curve and anything that was
working on your old PC should work on the new one), and if you can
download Windows 10 off Microsoft now, it should mean, if you do want to
reinstall from scratch in a year or so, you should be able to download
that current ISO, install it and be more or less up to date without
needing to go through three weeks of install patch, reboot, rinse,
repeat...

Ugh I hate starting from scratch. Any time I've had to perform a
clean installation, it takes forever to get everything back to a
recognizable state. And just when you think you finally have it
nailed down, you remember 5 other things that still need to be
reinstalled or tweaked.

I made that mistake when installing the technical preview earlier in
the year - I just assumed that I would be able to enter my Windows 7
product key in somewhere once the final version came out... but
no... So I'm putting off reformatting, installing Windows 7,
installing all the updates, and then upgrading... until I'm not sure
when, but I better start soon or I won't get to the installing
Windows 10 part before next July! :)

Ok, so let me just clarify, if I were to perform a clean install, I
won't have a key, neither will it activate rite? Or will it stil some
how activate?

As I said it might be worth saving just in case, but the product
key is tied

to the hardware on which it is first installed. Unless Microsoft
is willing

to reset the license, you can't just use the product key on a
different
machine.

But would you not need to keep the key stored in the event that you
move to newer hardware? Or will it work if you use the previously
runned windows8 or 7 key?

I agree that it might be worth retrieving your new product key for
archival purposes, but technically it is not required for a clean
installation. Once you have upgraded and your machine has been
registered
on the Microsoft servers, it will automatically be recognized
during
subsequent installations and you will not have to use the
product key
to
reactivate.

like carlos states, either way is fine. the procedure is all
the same.
What i would do in your place would be to. do the upgrade with
whatever
method you want. Then once you have windows 10 installed with your
product
key. get a key finder program like majic bean. or whatever its
called.
take note of your product key for future reference. then do a
windows
reinstall via the windows 10 settings. tell it to remove
everything and
its like a fresh reinstall of windows 10. I've done this method
and it
works great.

Hello everyone.
There seem to be mixed feelings about weather you should install
windows10 from the system tray icon, and weather it will be in
order
to make and use a dvd. People say its better to wait til
Microsoft
pushes it to your pc, because some had problems when they
forced the
upgrade via a dvd. I also don't like it that if I were to do a
clean
install I won't have a product key. Is there another way to
get a key
than just install the over upgrade? What is really true
regarding this
thing that you might get problems if you try force the install
before
the system tray icon tells you that its ok to do so? I don't
want to
do that and then end up that I must role back? Also, I am
holding off
with the dvd until over a month or so after they bring out the
updated
patch or sord of a service pack to fix issues.
