Re: Facebook live stream problem

Loy <loyrg2845@...>
 

I have two computers and on one I am having the problem, and the other live videos play much better.I tried with WiFi and Ethernet,  no difference. So, I was wondering if there is some kind of setting that would make a difference?

I do a lot of Facebook Live streaming and noticed the same thing.  I contacted Facebook about it.  They said there is a lot more back end processing going on when the stream is live than there is when the archive recording is played.  I almost always get better results playing archive recordings that Facebook makes than listening to live streams.

Your mileage may vary.

bluetooth keyboard for use with smart phone?

Keith S
 

I'm looking into purchasing a bluetooth keyboard for use with my smart phone.
 
My Phone is a samsung galaxy
 
Is there anything in particular I should look for in a bluetooth keyboard that will be used on such a  phone.?
 
I know it will need to be  syncronized with the phone, and I am sure my cousin could do that for me.
 
Thanks

Facebook Messenger Question

Hi Group,
I am trying to teach someone how to use facebook messenger.  I may have some more questions in the future.

My first question is: how do you restrict facebook messenger to contacts that you know or approve?

Re: enlarging print in notepad?

It may well change both but since I don't know, I don't want to
assume. I haven't worked with font sizes and printing in programs.
You can change the font size and see if you are curious and don't want
to wait for other comments.

Blindshell Classic warranty question

Laz
 

Hi all,

I believe it was on this list where gerald asked a question about what
would happen if a Blindshell Classic needed to be repaired...

Here is my answer to that. If you bought the Blindshell Classic from
us, we will replace it with another one. We'll then take the necessary
steps to sort things out with the manufacturer and if it needs to be
shipped anywhere it would be on our dime, not the customers.

I hope that helps.

Regards,

Laz

BlindShell Classic

Hi Group,


A while ago I had considered the Blind Shell Classic and had some questions.  A kind person who had a Classic contacted me and now I can not find his contact information.  I am thinking his name was Joseph/Joe and I would appreciate it if he would contact me again.


I have more questions and would really like to get his opinion on a couple of thingsthat have come up.


Many Thanks,

Nancy

Hello all,

Today I released a little game that I was working on the past few days. It is called BlindMaster and it's a logic game about deducing a secret code by listening to audio hints provided by the computer.

I hope it is okay that I announce it here - I thought that perhaps some of the readers here will find it interesting. The game is available for Windows and Linux.

http://blindmaster.sourceforge.net

This is my first attempt at creating an accessible game, hence I certainly made many ergonomic mistakes.

The current version is 0.9 and it is a beta production. The audio recordings are all computer generated, this will change in future versions to feature proper human recordings.

Re: A USB terminology question

Laz
 

Keith, The magnetic cables replace the regular USB charging/data
transfer cables, not an OTG cable. That's a different animal. Magnetic
cables will do charging and data transfer like a regular USB cable. An
OTG cable has the microUSB male on one end and a female type A on the
other end to allow for connecting either a USB keyboard or thumb drive
to your device.

Hi Keith,

I have no idea what that technician told you but the male end of the
cable is the plug that one inserts into the port and the female is the
port where one inserts a plug.

Your Android phone or tablet may be able to use what's called an OTG
cable that allows one to connect either a regular USB keyboard or a
thumb drive to the device. That would allow you to type and have some
navigation capability via the USB keyboard. You may also use a
Bluetooth keyboard to achieve the same result.

The OTG cable called the short cable by Humanware, was designed to
only work with the Stream/Trek; they made the plastic surrounding the
actual male plug in such a way that it will only work on their larger
female ports. Why they didn't use a regularly designed OTG cable is
beyond me.

A magnetic cable will minimize the amount of wear and tear that
accrues through the daily plugging and unplugging of a regular USB
cable due to the fact that the tip of the magnetic cable remains
inside the charging port after one removes the charging cable; one
doesn't unplug and replug it in.

Micro USB or standard USB, I use the male term to refer to the plug that is

dimensions as the plug.

In regards to the coaxial cables the tech guy was connecting to the tv and
the other AV equipment for the home entertainment center, he said that the
male connection was the part with the thin copper wire that is inserted
into the threaded knob connection. He said that it is not based on the
outside connection, but rather the inside connection.

If this is right, then should not the USB connections be termed male and
female in the same manner? The large USB plugs have a hollowed out
center, right?

I'm so confused.

The reason I am asking is that I have a smart phone and for the life of me,
cannot learn how to use the touch pad. Perhaps it is because the people who
have tried to teach me are sighted and well practiced in the use of a touch
pad smart phone, or perhaps it is because the local Bureau of blind services
does not do face to face work with clients, or perhaps it is because I am
too cheap to buy a tutorial for use with the android operating system, or
perhaps it is because I am just stupid.

But, I was told taht you can use a plug in converter that would allow you to
plug in a standard USB keyboard from a computer into the
smart phone.

I tried the short cable from my VR stream, and it does not fit. It does not
have the 2 bump dots on the part that you plug into the charging port of the
VR stream, as a longer plug in tip, and seems to have a sharp edge on one
side. I have come across charging cables like this and they do not fit into
smart phones, but do plug into the stream's charging port.

I am wondering if there is a specific type of male micro USB connector that
would be better for charging the stream to prevent wear out of the charge
connection and save me a lot of grief and money in getting the main circuit
board replaced in any future stream I get from humanware.

Okay, that's it. As if there weren't a lot to process in what I just got
done typing.

My fingers hurt, I'm going to go ice them down.

Thanks to anyone who can answer any of the above questions.

Keith
