using zoom on the desktop

Kimsan
 

Hi,

Is there a key stroke to leave a session when using zoom on the desktop?

During all of my times using zoom, it’s always on the iPhone, so I have yet to try it on the computer using windows 10.

Thank you.

Subject: [TechTalk] is there a good tutorial for using iTunes for windows with jaws?

 

I downloaded Itunes for windows, but to me it looks very inaccessible using Jaws 19 or 20. Has anyone found a tutorial geared more for visually-impaired people regarding how to use this program? I wondered if the Apple version might work better, but I don't know if that original version would work on Windows or not. It's just really hard to find things so if there are possible Jaws scripts or tutorials this would be appreciated.

Hi all,

Vicky, Zoom is full duplex, meaning that you do not have to press a key to
be heard. However, depending on the webinar, you mey be muted by the host
so that the presentation can be heard well, and there is no ambient noise
like dogs barking etc. If you want to be heard in a formal meeting like
this, raise your hand by pressing alt-y. You will be recognized by the
host and can then unmute yourself.

If the meeting is less formal, you can just talk as if you were talking in
a room with other people.

You may wish to arrive about ten minutes early so that if people are
chatting before a meeting, you can make sure you're being heard. A
headset is best for communicating like this because it reduces ambient
noise. This is especially good if the webinar is being recorded.

HTH,
Ann P.


Original message:

Hi List, I hope to take part in a Zoom webinar tomorrow and nothing I
have yet read regarding Zoom tells me how I can be heard.
I understand about unmuting myself with Alt plus a, but is it just a
matter of then switching my mike to on?
Is there anything about holding down the Control key while I am
talking, in order to be heard?
Thanks very much for any tips!

HI all, seniors on my support call asked for an accessible CD player.  I know most people these days play media from thumb drives or stream it.  CD’s and DVD’s are usually played on home sound systems, computers, or car stereos.  These seniors would like a standalone player.

 

There once was a talking DVD player, does anyone know if it is still sold? Do you have  any suggestions for a self-contained accessible CD player or a DVD player?  Preferably a simple device with distinct buttons, will play audio CD’s, CD or DVD media with mp3 audio format.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: Google Drive folder view

Mike B.
 


Hi Nancy,
 
Check out the tutorial below:
 
 
Google Drive with JAWS
 
By John Rose
 
The following step-by-step guide offers an introduction to the key
components of Google Drive for JAWS users.
 
This guide presumes that the JAWS keyboard is set for laptop mode, so the
JAWS command key is Caps Lock. If the JAWS keyboard is set for desktop mode,
the JAWS command key is Insert.
 
Getting Started:
list of 5 items
. Open Mozilla Firefox web browser
 
. Go to the address bar: Alt + D or Ctrl + L
 
. If a message box appears, type Alt + M to close message box.
 
. Type "
drive.google.com"
then press Enter
 
. Toggle JAWS virtual cursor off: Press Caps Lock + Z until you hear "Use
virtual PC cursor off"
list end
 
Navigation Panel:
list of 3 items
. Move computer focus to the navigation panel: Press the "g" key, then the
"n" key
 
. Navigate the panel: Use the up and down arrows to select from My Drive,
Shared With Me, Recent, Starred, or Trash
 
. Press enter on the selection (My Drive, Incoming, etc.)
list end
 
File List:
list of 3 items
. Go to the list of files: Press the "g" key, then the "L" key
 
. The "v" key toggles between grid and list views.
 
. Use up or down arrows to navigate files
list end
 
Actions Menu:
list of 1 items
. Press the "a" key to opens the actions menu. The actions menu is an easy
way to access almost all the tasks that need to be done with a file or
folder.
The menu includes: preview, open with (submenu), share (dialog box), get
link (dialog box), move to (dialog box), add star, rename (dialog box),
manage
versions (dialog box), make a copy, download, and remove.
list end
 
The next step that I would recommend is to perform some of the actions and
navigate some of the dialog boxes.
 
Adding a star:
list of 6 items
. Select a file. Press "a" to open the Actions menu.
 
. Navigate using down arrow to "Add star." Press Enter.
 
. Press "g", then "n" to go to the navigation pane.
 
. Navigate using down arrow to "Starred". Press Enter.
 
. Press "g", then "L" to go to the list of files.
 
. Press down arrow to ensure that the file you starred is in the list.
list end
 
Moving a file to a new folder:
list of 7 items
. Select a file. Press "a" to open the Actions menu.
 
. Navigate using down arrow to "Move to..." Press Enter.
 
. A dialog box opens. Navigate the dialog box using Tab (forward) and
Shift+Tab (backward). Navigate forward using Tab to "Create Folder"
 
. Press Spacebar to activate the button
 
. Type the name of the folder (e.g. "Homework"). Press Enter.
 
. The focus should be on the "Move" button, but you can use Tab then
Shift+Tab to make sure. When the focus is on the "Move" button, press
Spacebar.
 
. Note: If the file is in a shared folder, it will be removed from the
shared folder and put in the newly created folder. The people with whom the
document
is shared will no longer be able to see the document.
list end
 
Searching for a file or folder:
list of 4 items
. Press the forward slash key (/) to go to the Search edit box.
 
. Type the search term and press Enter.
 
. The computer focus will be on the list of files and folders that match
your search terms. Use the arrow keys to browse through the list.
 
. You can use the Actions key (a) or press Enter to open the file or folder.
list end
 
Sorting files and folder:
list of 4 items
. This task gives you the ability to change how files are sorted, giving you
different ways to navigate them.
 
. Press the Sort key (r).
 
. Use the down or up arrow keys to move through the menu. To determine how
files are sorted, listen for "checked" or "not checked" as you navigate
through
the following options:
 
list of 4 items nesting level 1
. Last modified
 
. Last edited by me
 
. Last opened by me
 
. Name
list end nesting level 1
 
. Press "Enter" to select an option from the list. Your focus returns to the
files and folders list for navigation.
list end
 
Sharing a file or folder:
list of 13 items
. Locate and ensure computer focus is on the selected file or folder.
 
. Press "a" to open the Actions menu.
 
. Press the down arrow until you hear "Share.".
 
. Press Enter to open the "Share with others" dialog box.
 
. The computer focus should be in the text edit box where you type the email
address of the person to whom you want to send the file. It may benefit new
users to press Tab to navigate the dialog box until JAWS reads "Enter names
or email addresses. edit type in text".
 
. Type in the email address of the person with whom you wish to share the
file. Press Tab.
 
. Type the next email address, if you wish to share the file or folder with
more than one person. Press Tab.
 
. Indicate the access level for the people with whom you are sharing the
file or folder.  Press Spacebar, then use the Up or Down Arrow keys to
select
either "Can edit," "Can comment," or "Can view." Press Enter when you have
selected one of the three choices. Then, press Tab.
 
. You are given the option of adding a note to the person or people with
whom you are sharing the file. Type a note, if you want, and then press Tab.
 
. You are given the option of notifying people via email. To clear or mark
the checkbox, press Spacebar. Then, press Tab.
 
. Your computer focus should be on the "Send" button. To send the share
invitation, press Spacebar.
 
. If you would like to cancel the share invitation, press Tab again to the
"Cancel" button and press Spacebar.
 
. There is an option at the end of the dialog box for Advanced Sharing,
which will be covered below.
list end
 
Uploading a new file:
list of 2 items
. Access My Drive using the Navigation Pane: press "g", then "n"
 
. Upload a new file:
 
list of 5 items nesting level 1
. Press "c" to access the "New" button
 
. Down Arrow to "File upload," press Enter
 
. The "File Upload" dialog box opens. This is a Windows Explorer dialog box
that you can navigate to locate the file you would like to upload. The
computer
focus begins in the "File Name" text edit box . Use Tab and Shift+Tab to
navigate the dialog box. Use the arrow keys to navigate within panes.
 
. Once you have located the file that you want to upload and it is
highlighted. Tab to the "Open" button. Press Spacebar. You can also just
press Enter
when the file is highlighted.
 
. If the upload fails due to a server rejection, it likely means that you
have been signed out of your Google account.
list end nesting level 1
list end
 
Creating new folders:
list of 6 items
. Access My Drive using the Navigation Pane: press "g", then "n"

to practice.

. Tab to the "Advanced" link. Press enter. The "Sharing settings" dialog box
should open.
 
list of 2 items nesting level 1

don't want
to listen to this, press Control to stop the screenreader from reading.

security
you give it.

this selection will read the name of the institution; with this selection,
anyone
at your institution can find and access the file)
 
. On - Institution with link (if you are a member of an institution, with

each individual has (e.g. Can edit, Can view, Can comment).
 
. After the list of collaborators, computer focus will open a section of the
dialog box that allows you to invite more people to share the document and
set their level of access. You can then either Send them a notification of
the access or Cancel this action, if you do not wish to invite more people.
If you input new collaborators, press the Send button. If you do not want to
input new collaborators, press the Cancel button.
 
. Computer focus should then move to the "Done" button. If it does not, Tab

list of 10 items nesting level 1
. Locate the file in My Drive, and highlight it in the file list.
 
. Press the "A" key to access the Actions menu.
 
. Down arrow to "Share..."
 
. Press Enter.
 
. Tab to "Get shareable link". Press Enter.
 
. This turns link sharing on, which also has a variety of levels of access.
Generally, when link sharing is turned on, it means that anyone with the
link
in your network (e.g.
tsbvi.edu,
misd.net)
can access the file.
 
. The computer focus will be in a text edit box, and the link will be
highlighted.
 
. Press Ctrl+C to copy the link.
 
. Now you can paste the link in an email or in a document to share with
anyone in your network.
 
. Tab to the "Done" button or press Escape.
list end nesting level 1
list end
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I think the Victor Stratus may still be available.

It is somewhat larger than the vibe or stream as it is a slot loading device for cds.

I don’t think it does anything with dvds.

It has well shaped buttons for speed, tone, volume and other navigation functions.

Doug,

There likely are portable CD players with tactile buttons. There were a few which were made for blind users which predated the Victor Stream and they played CDs and also talked. One was called the Victor Vibe, which I still own, and another was called the Victor Wave. As far as I know these products are no longer available. I also have a portable CD player with tactile buttons but they were arranged in a circle and a friend of mine labeled them for me in Braille because, without that, it would have been difficult to learn the configuration. I'm sure you can still acquire CD or DVD players with nice, tactile buttons but it's not something that I follow and so I can't speak as to types of models or availability.

Hi all,

Vicky, Zoom is full duplex, meaning that you do not have to press a key to
be heard. However, depending on the webinar, you mey be muted by the host
so that the presentation can be heard well, and there is no ambient noise
like dogs barking etc. If you want to be heard in a formal meeting like
this, raise your hand by pressing alt-y. You will be recognized by the host
and can then unmute yourself.

If the meeting is less formal, you can just talk as if you were talking in a
room with other people.

You may wish to arrive about ten minutes early so that if people are
chatting before a meeting, you can make sure you're being heard. A
headset is best for communicating like this because it reduces ambient
noise. This is especially good if the webinar is being recorded.

HTH,
Ann P.

Hi List, I hope to take part in a Zoom webinar tomorrow and nothing I
have yet read regarding Zoom tells me how I can be heard.
I understand about unmuting myself with Alt plus a, but is it just a
matter of then switching my mike to on?
Is there anything about holding down the Control key while I am
talking, in order to be heard?
Thanks very much for any tips!
Sincerely, Vicky V

Re: scanning books with iPhone

Hi Josh,

 

There  are a few devices around that let you put the phone on top or in front of a stand.

Others will hopefully give details.

 

One thing I can suggest is having a piece of plexiglass or other  transparent material you can set on the book to help hold the pages open.

Subject: [TechTalk] scanning books with iPhone

 

hi,

Is there a scanning stand that will fit different-sized phones, so that I can set my phone on it, use some kind of guide to line a book up underneath it and use my phone to scan some books which are not on bookshare, or any other digital book services? I will have to get the books used. I’ll probably use either envision AI or voice dream scanner to scan the books but its too difficult to scan books without some sort of stand because you have to hold the book flat and trying to do that while holding a phone is nearly impossible at least for me oh and also where would I buy such a scanning stand for a phone that can accommodate books?

 

Josh
