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

And also remember, divide your 55 or so Mb per hour's streaming by about 5 or 6, to arrive at how much you've actually been downloading from the stream over that time. .

Hi Rajmund,

First your calculations were the amount of kB in 60 secs, not 60 minutes.
Secondly, I believe it's the amount of data from the streaming that you
downloaded - the content, music or speech, sounds, divided by your download
speed - (not the kbps rate)
that counts.

So, if you're listening to a stream that is broadcasting around 1.Mb a
minutes, as in a song, at 128 kbps, (thoughat 128 will decrease if it only
64-bit, to around 500 kb ps, or, conversely, increase to around 2 mbps if
it's at 256 kbps. Remember, it's streaming, not as if it were already
downloaded; it is still downloading. So, your 128 kps would thus give you
around 60 (a little less than that, maybe around 54/55 Mb, actually) in 60
minuytes. Normally, you would have not much to worry about in terms of radio
streaming download bandwidth. If it were video streaming, that would be a
good deal more and might be a cause for anxiety if you were a video
streaming addict on a 3G service! <Smile>.

I hope that explains things enough. (I saw one gianormous figure quoted on
other tech list that you asked on. (I knew it couldn't possibly be correct.)
This caused me to do my math, to think this through, so I hope my answer is
accurate enough.

Lastly, Usually there's nothing wrong with streaming radio by 3G. If you're
having reception difficulties, it's either where you are in relation to your
WiFi signal, or that the station's server could be at maximum user
capacity - meaning that too many people are trying to listen at the same
time, thus entailing a patchy streaming, or a cut-ting out of the station
stream to several users.

Hi all,
For reasons, I only have 3g wifi, as of this point. As
some
of you will know, I like listening to the radio, rather
than
having own collection. So, here's the question. I think I
know the answer, but just want to confirm. So, I use m3u
files, that are between 128 and 64 kbps. Am I right to
think, that this means if I listen to a radio station for
an
hour, and it is a 64 kbps, does it mean I will use up 3840
kb off the 3g? Any clarification is appreciated!

Hi, All:

The FS representative couldn't explain why my online attempts failed since she found my serial number in their data base without any trouble.
I told her the steps that I followed and she did not say anything like that's not how you do it. She just couldn't explain while I was unsuccessful. She said renewing online is supposed to be possible.
Maybe someone else will have better luck renewing online.

Hello, All:

I'm running JAWS 16 on 64 bit Windows 7 Home and have had licensed
copies since something like J3.3. My SMA count is down to 0 and I
wanted to renew the SMA to be able to get JAWS 17. I thought I
remembered that one could now renew a SMA on the Freedom Scientific
site and searched for SMA on the site. One of the results was a link
to purchase or renew, but I got a "Our records indicate you have not
registered your software product with Freedom Scientific. Please take
a few moments to register your product with us" message when I typed
in my JAWS seriel number in the edit box that came up. I'm 98%
positive that registering my copy when I first purchased JAWS was one
of the first things I did when my copy was installed. I'm afraid
that attempting to reregister my copy will only confuse things and
wonder if it would be better to wait until tomorrow and call FS?

Thanks,

Margaret

Re: windows10 instal question

Quentin Christensen
 

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...

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.

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.

Thanks to all who have or will send complimentary messages of approval.  As I said a few days ago in a different context, as the car said when the new owner drove it off the lot, I depreciate it. 

 

I think Carlos and I see things in about the same way regarding how to run a list.  So if, for some reason, I do moderate it for Carlos temporarily, I expect my decisions to be similar to what Carlos would do.  Continuity and reliability are important in a well run list.

Re: windows10 instal question

Quentin Christensen
 

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! :)

Re: windows10 instal question

Quentin Christensen
 

With upgrading, and as previously stated, it really makes no difference whether you wait for Microsoft to push it or download the CD creator tool from them - the issues that people have had have mostly been related to drivers being incompatible, which will happen regardless - the only way around that is to check with your hardware manufacturer and wait until they've updated their drivers.

When you upgrade, Microsoft takes a snapshot of your hardware so that if you wipe your system and reinstall it then checks against Microsoft and sees that you have a registered system and your copy of Windows is automatically activated. It saves having to remember or write down software keys, but it does mean that if you upgrade your system, you may need to buy a new license for Windows. I believe it mostly looks at the CPU / motherboard, but I'm not 100% sure.

So you can't really do much with your Windows key even if you extract it - presumably if you try putting it on a new system or second computer, it will refuse to activate as that 'key' is then locked to your current system.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Renewing JAWS SMA

Margaret Thomas <iluvtoread@...>
 

Hi, All:

I called FS today and got my JAWS SMA renewed. I tried online again today before phoning and got the same message as yesterday about their records showing that I had not previously registered my product.

The FS representative couldn't explain why my online attempts failed since she found my serial number in their data base without any trouble. I told her the steps that I followed and she did not say anything like that's not how you do it. She just couldn't explain while I was unsuccessful. She said renewing online is supposed to be possible. Maybe someone else will have better luck renewing online.

Hello, All:

I'm running JAWS 16 on 64 bit Windows 7 Home and have had licensed
copies since something like J3.3. My SMA count is down to 0 and I
wanted to renew the SMA to be able to get JAWS 17. I thought I
remembered that one could now renew a SMA on the Freedom Scientific
site and searched for SMA on the site. One of the results was a link
to purchase or renew, but I got a "Our records indicate you have not
registered your software product with Freedom Scientific. Please take
a few moments to register your product with us" message when I typed
in my JAWS seriel number in the edit box that came up. I'm 98%
positive that registering my copy when I first purchased JAWS was one
of the first things I did when my copy was installed. I'm afraid that
attempting to reregister my copy will only confuse things and wonder
if it would be better to wait until tomorrow and call FS?

Thanks,

Margaret

Celebrating International Literacy Day
Proud sponser for the Braille Challenge
On the occasion of International Literacy Day, HumanWare shares the
following inspiring success story on the importance of awareness and support
for Braille Literacy among children and adults who are blind.
The Braille Challenge has been a milestone every year since first grade
for Tiffany Zhao. She has loved the challenge of the competition itself, the
thrill of preparation and the friends she has made from around the country.
But this year, the stakes were particularly high.. And the story was one
with a very happy ending!
Since fifth grade, Tiffany, now a first-year student at University of
California - Berkeley, says that a BrailleNote has been her permanent
educational tool. First using a BrailleNote mPower and later a BrailleNote
Apex, Tiffany prepared her homework assignments for emailing to her
teachers, rapidly typed her own class notes, read many exams from her Apex
display, and read books for school and pleasure.














But those BrailleNote units were all the property of her public school
district in Los Angeles, on loan to her as a student. Upon graduation, the
BrailleNote she had used throughout her senior year had to return to school
inventory.
Things couldn't have worked out more perfectly, in Tiffany's view. On
Thursday, she returned the Apex to the school.
On Friday, she left for the Braille Challenge, spending Friday evening
re-connecting with old friends and making new ones, all lovers of braille
like herself.


Through the day-long intensity of the four segments of the Braille
Challenge - measuring a student's competency in reading comprehension,
proofreading, interpreting charts and graphs, and the speed and accuracy
used to type braille notes from an audio passage - Tiffany did what she
always does: her best. And all those personal hours devoted to training for
the event paid off: She won first place!
The prize, of course, was a BrailleNote Apex - a brand-new one that would
belong exclusively to Tiffany. There was also the $2500 cash prize that went
directly to her tuition as a first year student at UC Berkeley.
Just one month into college, Tiffany's confidence and delight are soaring.
She loves living in the dorm, laughing that while she misses her parents,
they don't really need to call her every day!
The energy she once burned in a soccer team for kids with disabilities,
she now uses to navigating the Berkeley campus with her black Labrador,
Helene, with whom she trained at Guide Dogs for the Blind a year ago.
She loves braille and loves her Apex, which is integral in everything she
does. Her textbooks, class notes, emails, and assignments in progress are
all on her Apex. For Tiffany, the speech is usually turned off because, she
says, "I would much rather read than listen to audio."
And, being a typical 18-year-old, she is not using her Apex solely for
academic achievement.
"I've become addicted to the game Tetris," she says, which has been
cleverly adapted to Apex use by using various symbols to represent shapes in
the game which are then moved from place to place by judicious use of the
apex thumb keys.
Her highest score to date was 13,000 and, when asked if there was an
maximum possible score in the game, she answered in her typically infectious
self-assurance: "I don't know because I haven't reached it yet!"
