Although I see that you can just use the
"Change Your Subscription"
link in the message footers to access these options without a passwords.  Sigh, I really am slow this week.  I never used these options myself on BlindTech.

It is not client dependant.  You have to go to the homepage which in this
case would be
https://groups.io/org/groupsio/TechTalk
for the primary group or
https://groups.io/org/groupsio/TechTalk+chat
for the chat subgroup. Then you have to sign in with your Email address and
assign a password.  At that point you can log in to the site, select the
"Subscription"
link, and then choose the
"No Email"
radio button.  Most list providers also have mail commands which you can
send to perform such actions much more quickly.  Although I could not find
the list of commands for groups.io so if anyone either has the list or knows
where they can be found, I would appreciate it.

Re: tech problems galore!

Carolyn Arnold
 

You know what? I'm leaving them alone period, even if it doesn't work. I got
this one for $14.99 at Office Max, so that is what I'd do before I'd think
of trying to take it apart and clean it. Now if my husband wanted to take
that on, I'd say go for it, but as for me, I'm not tearing into a keyboard.

I'll modify what I said in my first message and change my opinion somewhat.

I don't know enough about fans to know what maintenance regarding them may
be advisable. I would think it would depend in part on the environment the
computer is in. Is the computer on the floor or on a table? Is the floor
or table clean? Is it near a window that is often opened or not? While
certain considerations of the sort might apply to keyboareds, such as are
they near an open window often, and I may have overlooked such
considerations in my answer, my view is that it's probably better not to
clean a keyboard internally unless it starts exhibiting behavior indicating
it is a good idea. Fans and free ventalation of the computer may be another
story.

Also, to further refine and alter my last message, it might depend on
whether someone has had experience cleaning keyboards internally. I doubt
that most users have any experience of doing so and so I say, leave the
keyboard alone internally if it works.

Another advantage is that if a topic turns into too much chat after starting out as a technology topic, you, Carlos can ask that it be taken to the chat list and it can be done without causing problems or resentment.  On the blindtech list, when the owner or moderators asked that something be taken off list, it was an absurd request and was tantamount to closing the thread.  Where was the thread supposed to go?  No provision was available.  That caused needless resentment.  I suggested in the past that Blindtech have a chat group associated with it but the owner and moderators refused to consider the idea.

Additional Free Voices for NVDA

Gerald Levy
 

 
On my old XP PC, I was able to use Eloquence as my default voice for NVDA because I also happened to have Open Book 7 installed as well.  But on my current Windows 7 PC, the only default voices available for NVDA are Microsoft Anna or ESpeak, neither of which appeals to me because they are not especially clear or responsive.  I am well aware that Eloquence is not available legally as a free voice for NVDA in Win 7, so I won’t even bother to get into a discussion about this sensitive issue.  In any case, are there any other free voices available for NVDA that are clearer and more responsive than Anna or ESpeak?  Thanks.

Hi, all.
I have always been a huge fan of Thunderbird, but ever since I've used a later version or an earlier version of Thunderbird, I just see these stupid message thingies that say not responding more than my share of times per day.

The portable version does work just as well.

Running it off of a USB 3 flash drive will certainly reduce the initial startup time, but then like all programs it is loaded into memory so it won't specifically improve overall performance.

Thanks for the positive feedback. And I hope that you and all other members

moderate the off topic chatter issue.

Hi,
It seems to me that the life cycle of every list which is in its own way
like a living thing seems to ebb and flow like the tide moving through
periods of higher activity and lower, being on point and straying into a
bit more loose chatter. I'm sure under the steadying hand and even
tempered nature of our moderator it'll weather them all just fine. After
all like a new relationship it's still shiny and the newness is still
quite palpable. therefore the chatter of the past few days doesn't cause
me much alarm as a reader or participant. In time the newness will wear
off and as is the case in any relationship it'll start to take on its own
unique character.
After all it is only still under a week old.
Mercifully we still have at our disposal the delete key, filters and when
things get really overwhelming there's always the option of going no mail
until things calm down.
Just my two cents absolutely no one asked for but I still feel welcome
enough to post (smile).

Hi,
It seems to me that the life cycle of every list which is in its own way like a living thing seems to ebb and flow like the tide moving through periods of higher activity and lower, being on point and straying into a bit more loose chatter. I'm sure under the steadying hand and even tempered nature of our moderator it'll weather them all just fine. After all like a new relationship it's still shiny and the newness is still quite palpable. therefore the chatter of the past few days doesn't cause me much alarm as a reader or participant. In time the newness will wear off and as is the case in any relationship it'll start to take on its own unique character.
After all it is only still under a week old.
Mercifully we still have at our disposal the delete key, filters and when things get really overwhelming there's always the option of going no mail until things calm down.
Just my two cents absolutely no one asked for but I still feel welcome enough to post (smile).
Happy computing, learning and forbearing one with another everyone.
Robin

Hi,
Not carlos, but I'm kind of the tester of everything. The chat
group is already created. As for blindtech, I agree. Its more
like the silent drama tech. LOL! And I agree, our admin actually
cares, unlike over there, whenever they feel like, an admin note
appears. But that's pretty much it.

Subject: [TechTalk] Is Blind Tech List Dying?


I have noticed that since Sunday, message volume on the Blind
Tech list has diminished dramatically While message volume on
this list has been very high. There have been very few messages
posted on the Blind Tech list over the past two days. Have most
Blind Tech members defected to this list? Unlike the owner of
the Blind Tech list, the owner of this list is always actively
involved in ongoing threads. But like other list members, I
would like to see more in the way of tech discussions and less in
the way of idel chit-chat. Hopefully, a separate list will be
created to handle the banter so that the main list can
concentrate on answering serious tech-related inquiries. Again,
many thanks to Carlos for doing such a great job. Now he셪l
probably ban me. LOL!
