Unless you have an unrestricted version of Eloquence, which most people don't, you can't use it for free.

Eloquence is legally available for NVDA.  You may not have seen it, but there was a long thread on blind tech a month or two ago about purchasing a newly available legal SAPI5 version of Eloquence from Code Factory.  I don't remember what the cost is.  But I seem to recall it was about 49 U.S. dollars. 
 
You can try the program as a demo which runs for seven days, if you wish.  I'd have to check to see where you can download it from.  Vendors are selling it other than Code factory but it should be directly available from Code Factory as well.

I make it a policy of not having any food or drink items by my computer, bad things happen no matter how carefull you are!  Also never put a desktop on carpet, if it needs to be on the floor, get a static free mat from wallmart to put down so the tower is not directly on the flor!  If you smoke, do not do it around your computer, it will suffer a painful deaf in it's short life spand!  Please do not put your tower in a inclosed space, it tends to not ventilate and it will make the fan runn more because of the heat!  Heather

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.

It is not client dependant. You have to go to the homepage which in this
case would be

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.

It also occurs to me that the chat subgroup might have another useful
benefit. If you subscribe to it, but at certain times it becomes too much
or is overwhelming your inbox, you can simply disable it by setting it to
"no mail" for as long as you like and you still won't be missing out on
content from the primary list.

Okay, since I suspect this is likely to be the prevailing opinion, I
have gone ahead and created a chat subgroup. I agree that the excessive
chatting may simply be a side effect of the fact that it is a new list,
but
having it available certainly can't hurt. One of the differences between
a
standard/parent group and a subgroup, is that only members of the parent
group can subscribe to a subgroup. I hope that everyone understands that
as
much as I don't want to be a jerk, if we're going to make this change, I
will have to mostly enforce the restriction on too much general
chatting/humor on the primary list. Of course, part of my reasoning for
creating a new list was to provide a more open minded/friendly environment
so this doesn't mean that I'm going to turn into a raving dictator. In my
opinion and experience, most rules which are too strictly enforced only
wind
up irritating those who are required to follow them.

The subscription address for the chat list is
TechTalk+chat+subscribe@groups.io
<mailto:TechTalk+chat+subscribe@groups.io
and the posting address is
TechTalk+chat@groups.io <mailto:TechTalk+chat@groups.io


Re: Going "no mail" with the chat subgroup

rajmund <brajmund2000@...>
 

Hi,
Also, if you want to stay on techtalk, but not the chat, so you unsubscribe from tech, that will also unsubscribe you from chat. And until you're subscribed, you can't subscribe to chat, either. So in short, if you get sick of tech, but not chat, do as Carlos suggested below, but remove the +chat.

I know that Rajmund already posted this information, but since it may be more relevant specifically for the chat subgroup I want to clarify this point.

Even if you have subscribed to it, at certain times you may not feel like dealing with the additional traffic from the chat subgroup so to set the chat list to "no mail" send a message to
TechTalk+chat+nomail@groups.io
and to start receiving messages again send a message to

Hello,

Zira is good. The thing is that it is very slow to respond to key strokes. I suppose that if the keys are set to echo words and not individual keystrokes, that would help.

You mentioned Zira Pro. Is this a revised version from the original one which appeared a few years ago?

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.

Re: Thunderbird not responsive so many times a day

I'm using Windows 10 for Thunderbird, so Idk why when I am doing something it constantly goes frozen. I'm this close to writing Mozzilla and saying you guys need to patch up Thunderbird and make it better. Eliminate all crash stuff, keep it smoothly running.

You might be able to find out what is crashing by looking at technical information about the crashes.  or maybe it's time to try the old version of Windows Live Mail or the Outlook Express release that has been altered to be compatible with Windows 7.  I see nothing unusual or exceptional about Thunderbird.  Thunderbird has features some people are interested in other than e-mail but just as an e-mail program, I see nothing that would induce me to keep using it if it were not performing properly on my machine and if solving the problem was difficult.

Subject: [TechTalk] Thunderbird not responsive so many times a day

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. It has happened about eight times yesterday, a few more
today, so Idk if there's a patch or a specificity I need to work out for
Thunderbird. Please let me know guys if there's anything I'm missing.
