Re: Pontes Media Downloaded Issue

Hi George,

I did reinstall the program and it now works fine.

Ron,


Version 3.1.1 is, in many ways, a step backward.  You get almost no feedback about downloads in progress, so it's hard to know whether a download is taking place or not.

You might try the following:

Open Pontes Media Downloader 3.1.1.

Press ctrl plus u to update the download engine.

Click the ok button when the update finishes and try your download again.


Hth,

George

Hi Group,

For the past day or so, I have been unable to get anything from Youtube to download using the latest version of Pontes Media Downloader.  Has anyone else had this issue and if so, is there a solution?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello,

If you do a NVDA plus Control plus s this will bring up the choose synthesizer dialog. If you tab past the list of synths you will find where you can turn audio ducking on or off.

Hi,
You can also do NVDA shift d to cyle through the audio ducking options. I don't think this works on the latest version though, since I'm primarily a mac user.

nvda and page brakes

heather albright
 

Hay does anyone know how to make NVDA not announce page breaks? I went threw all the settings and tried to turn this feature off. When I am reading a book, I don’t want to here “page break…page break. I would love to NVDA full time but, the page break issues when I am reading turns me off; it is really annoying to me!  Thanks Heather

Hi all,

If you mean is it possible for someone who is blind or VI to put together a robot, that depends on a lot of stuff. First, how techie is the person? A good deal of knowledge about electronics and the bits and parts of a computer is assumed e.g. circuit boards and the like and how they fit together. Second this assumes that the instructions are in an accessible format. You wouldn't want to put together a robot unless you had the instructions in an accessible format.

Third, is it possible for the person to distinguish one part from another? In a robot, one might assume the parts are numbered e.g. 1 goes into 2 which is connected to 3 by the silver wire; 3 is placed into the socket on 4 that is labeled with the letter X. This am detailed work in the extreme. If all the parts are clearly labeled in an accessible way, then this is possible.

Bottom line, yes, if conditions are met.

I'm not an avid robot builder, but there has been a couple of blind or visually impaired guys who are knowligible and have worked with electronic circuits. If you go to the Eyes on Success website, you may find a podcast on the subject. There are notes and resources that come with their discusssions, and you can email the guests.

Re: accessing system volume information on Windows 7

Vicki W
 


Okay, since no one seems to understand that I want exactly what I asked for, access to system volume information, let me try again and show you the instructions I have which have always worked before.
 
I need access to the system volume information folder. First I show protected files and folders which works fine. Then I use the following instructions and get an access is denied message, even though I am doing it as an administrator. Here are the directions, which, as I said, have always worked before.
 
Instructions:
 
Using CACLS with Windows XP Home Edition Using the NTFS File System
In Windows XP Home Edition with the NTFS file system, you can also use the
Cacls tool, which is a command-line tool, to display or modify file or
folder
access control lists (ACLs). For more information about the Cacls tool,
including usage and switches, search the Help and Support Center for
"cacls."
List of 5 items
1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
2. Make sure that you are in the root folder of the partition for which you
want to gain access to the System Volume Information folder. For example, to
gain access the C:\System Volume Information folder, make sure that you are
in the root folder of drive C (at a "C:\" prompt). To check this, once you have typed cmd and pressed enter, then type cd\ and press enter again.
3. Type the following line, and then press ENTER:
 
cacls "driveletter:\System Volume Information" /E /G username:F
Make sure to type the quotation marks as indicated. This command adds the
specified user to the folder with Full Control permissions.
4. Double-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder to
open it.
5. If you need to remove the permissions after troubleshooting, type the
following line at a command prompt:
 
cacls "driveletter:\System Volume Information" /E /R username
This command removes all permissions for the specified user.
list end

Hi Vicki,
We need some clarification here,
What do you mean by "System Volume Infromation"?
"System Volume Information" This is a folder on each drive on your computer,
and not to be confused with
"System Volume Control"
which does what the name implies.
It is important to use the correct terminology when asking for help, to
prevent a lot of mis-information.
So, what can we help you with?
