Re: is victor stream second generation the same as victor stream new generation

Laz
 

Hi Joanne,

The only brand new victor Reader Stream being sold is the Victor
Reader Stream 2nd Gen also called latest or newest gen. The other
portable Humanware book reader is the Victor Reader Trek which is its
own device, not the next Stream or anything like that, has the GPS and
the above described Stream bundled together in one device hence the
higher price.

I hope that helps.

Stay well,

Laz

Re: BlindShell Classic

Hi Abbie,

A couple of points to consider to get the most bang for your buck...

We don't charge you to activate your phone. You pay for your phone
plan and we activate it for you before we send it out to you.

The most affordable plan we offer is just $25.99 and includes
unlimited calls and texts and 3GB of data a high speed. However if you
sign up for auto refill you get a discount of anywhere from a couple
of dollars to $5 off your monthly plan. The higher cost plans just
provide you with more GB of high speed data.

We provide the direct link to that tutorial from Mystic Access as well
as the download link to the Blindshell Classic manual.

We install both the SIM card and the battery for you.

As may have already been stated, we will replace your phone to help
you avoid any hassles of having to send it anywhere out of the country
for repairs.

Regards,

Laz

Mystic Access is now distributing the phone. What's more, for an extra $19
set-up fee, they'll activate the phone with a network that uses the A T and
T tower. This network only charges $20 a month for unlimited talking and
texting and 1 gig of data. The down side is that you have to install the
battery and sim card, which is something I've never done with a cell phone,
and I'm not particularly mechanically inclined. Otherwise, it's a good
deal.

Re: WINDOWS10 INSTALLATION TOOLKIT: A QUESTION

You can absolutely do this. You can just copy the upgrade assistant executible, but you do need an active internet connection to perform the upgrade.

Hi Everyone:

Here's a question I could not answer succinctly:

It's an Asus laptop running Windows8.1; owner wishes to UPGRADE IT to
Windows10 using the Windows10 Microsoft Toolkit. Can this Toolkit be copied
to a flash drive from, say a Windows7 computer and then used to perform the
upgrade on the aforementioned laptop?

Not sure I was clear enough, but that's why I'm running back to my LOCKDOWN

Hi Abbie,

Sounds great, go for it if that's what you want. You do realize that you cannot add external programs like AIRA or BARD Mobile? This is a feature phone, not a full smart phone like the Smart Vision2.

Playing an mp3 during a Skype call

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi group,

 

I’m on Windows 10 with current Jaws and Skype 8.5. I have followed steps on getting a sound file to play during a Skype call. Unfortunately, it is not working for me. If anyone has ideas on what I should double check, or other steps to accomplish this, I would appreciate it.

 

Thank you,

Re: is victor stream second generation the same as victor stream new generation

Yes, the Victor Stream second generation is the same as the new generation victor stream.

The victor stream trek is the  same as the second gen with the trek added on.

Re: BlindShell Classic

Is there a compelling reason why you meed this phone right now?  If you are not comfortable  installing the battery and sync card yourself, I suggest waiting until the health crisis is over so that you can visit a phone store or Best Buy store in person and have them do it for you. Before you order this phone from Mystic Access, contact them and ask them whether they are willing to take care of warranty repairs and service, like Laz Mesa is willing to do.  If they give you a run around, tell them to take a hike, and order the phone from Laz for the same price.  The fact that he is willing to go the extra mile for his customers speaks volumes about his integrity and helpfulness.  Other blind-products merchants may also sell you this phone, but if you have a problem they may leave you in the lurch to fend for yourself.  The warranty is very vague about obtaining repairs.  Keep in mind that the BlindShell is manufactured overseas in the Czech Republic, so if you have a  problem with it and you have to  return it to them yourself, you may not see it again for a very long time, if at all, given the current international health crisis.

Hi, Heather.

 

I went to the rent cafe site using NVDA and Chrome and it looks accessible.

 

It's much more accessible than the one my complex is using.  It's a realpage.com site and I can't get it to list any links even though I can tab around and hear things being listed as links.

 

Using arrow keys or the NVDA command to list links does nothing, but I can tab to a link and use the enter key to activate the link.

 

Good luck.

Re: bluetooth keyboard for use with smart phone?

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Hello Keith S.:

In truth, I have not read up much on neuropathy in the fingers. I ought to
though, especially since I am in the DME business line where keeping up with
the CONSTANT CHANGING RULES has become nightmarish for me and several chaps
in the business.

Back to the bluetooth keyboard thingie; the keys may be CRAMPED TOGETHER
somewhat, but I've HAD NO PROBLEMS typing and navigating on My Shiny Android
toys using it. Granted, I only use it when the need to TYPE REAL LONG TEXTS
become necessary. The keys do have to be cramped together somewhat to allow
for the trifold methinks!

That said, based on the info you shared in your post, I'll suggest you take
a hard look at the Logitech line. The K380, K480, and a few others are
popular amongst blind bluetooth keyboard users. Matias bluetooth keyboard
is also popular, does cost a tad more. The RiVo2 is yet another; many iOS
enthusiasts run with this one, but it is my understanding that it does work
with Android toys as well. It specifically designed for use by the blind,
looks like LS&S Group has it, and Devine Medical sells it through
amazon.com/ If memory serves, it does cost well over $300xx; not sure you
want to SHELL OUT that much on a bluetooth keyboard.

I'll defer to others to FILL IN THE MISSING BLANKS with respect to the
Logitech offerings; my last rendezvous with a Logitech bluetooth keyboard
caused me to acquire one that DIDN'T FOLD and also required me to type in a
paring code which I've never had to do with any other bluetooth keyboard I
play ball with. So, I gave it away to an international student I mentor.
Good luck, and I hope you'll find something you can play with; may be when
the lockdowns are lifted, you could take a trip to a nearby computer store
and play with a few bluetooth keyboards before purchasing one.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

Re: Reading Kindle books with JAWS or NVDA.

Dave
 

Hello,


I use both Jaws and NVDA while reading Kendal Books.


Now with that being said, there are some Books that are not made the same, and those either will not read at all, or Kendal itself will use a Voice, a not very good voice, to read the Book.



I have not yet figured out what to do about those books that either do not read at all, or Kendal reads it with it own voice.


maybe the folks at Amazon's Customer Service for those with Disabilities can help.


As slim as the Chances of this happening, it never hurts to give it a try.

Hi All, my name is Claudio and I have one question:
Is it possible to read Amazon Kindle books using Vocalizer TTS voices

Re: enlarging print in notepad?

 

Steps for doing more quicker: Press Alt+O for format menu, and arrow down, or press letter f for font then enter. Tab until you here file size, and adjust by typing the size you want, or arrow keys to choose.
