Subject: [TechTalk] HOW TO UNSUBSCRIBE, Humor

Hi All,

A little humor I thought y'all might get a kick out of:


*How To Unsubscribe *

*Author Unknown*

Ever tried to unsubscribe from a company's mailing list and
felt like you had been through a serious war when it was
finally completed? I know I have! Some of these people
should just be honest and post more realistic directions
such as these:

To unsubscribe from this service you must first purchase a
Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription Cancellation Unit. The
unit can be obtained from most hardware stores and dental
clinics. Be sure to obtain the proper permits to operate the
unit from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Food and
Drug Administration in Washington D.C. USA.

Be sure to carefully unpack the kit and place each component
in its accompanying mesh safety bag. Mount the Pershing DF4
mesinator on top of the perforated Gerring Mach 77
refibulator and attach them using the eight-millimeter
torque fork. Be sure that the refibulator is mounted at a
66 degree angle and properly dispersed so that it is flush
with the curved section of the Pyrex thistle tube. Place the
four sections of the triangular separation gear into the
posture cylinder and lock them into place using the band-aid
adhesive strip. Insert the wiggling pin into the wobbling
hole, making sure that it's seated correctly. Place the D
cell battery and the eleven 9 volt batteries in the power
chamber.

The device should be calibrated before operation using the
optional digital corkscrew accessory pack prior to
operation. Insert the digital corkscrew through the
electronic combustion service chamber using caution not to
touch the reinforced tungsten igniter control module and
quickly turn the inverter drive to 28.6 degrees. Turn the
Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription Cancellation Unit
upside down and hit the bottom plate with a 48-ounce
ball-peen hammer while shaking the unit vigorously. Force
open the door to the incineration valve compartment and set
the pressure gauge to
719 psi. Close the door and seal it shut with duct tape. The
unit should now be properly calibrated and ready to use.

Before activating the Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription
Cancellation Unit, you must first elevate it to a height of
229 feet above sea level to ensure that the unit receives
the proper oxygen level and barometric pressure. Point the
aerial to 17 degrees north by Northeast to within the
parameters of the Telstar GS-2 weather satellite and apply
pressure to the wing shaft on the southernmost section of
the modular accelerator. Using the special ratchet adapter
supplied with the unit, rotate the heater core to the "on"
position.

The "on" position has been obtained when the green light
begins to flash, signifying that the red light is about to
go off. Once the red light is off, flip the toggle switch
labeled "ON/OFF" to the "ON" position and count to 47 before
logging on to the system.

Login using your username and password and wait for the
prompt. Once prompted you must check the box with the
appropriate action you wish to take and then press the
pressure release button and turn off the compressor while
turning the hand crank at 231 meters per minute. Next, press
control, alt, delete, caps lock, shift, number lock, escape
and tab simultaneously.
Press enter.

You will have one second to complete the procedure. If you
fail to respond in the time limit allowed, simply purchase a
new Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription Cancellation Unit
and start from the beginning.

Please remember that this is the only way we will accept for
you to unsubscribe from this service. We have made every
attempt to simplify the procedure for your convenience.
Failure to comply with the unsubscribe policy will result in
immediate termination of your subscription so please follow
the above directions closely.

Re: Possibly Entering the "smart phone" world

To anyone considering the purchase of a smart phone or IPhone at this time.  Before you purchase a phone online, be aware that you may experience delays in shipping.  Also be aware that if you have trouble setting up the phone, many cell phone stores have closed indefinitely,including all Apple stores in the US,  and you may have trouble finding help.  And for those of you who still have land line phones, do not under any circumstances give them up. Many people who ditched their land line phones in favor of cell phones are now regretting their decision, because if their cell phone dies, they may have no way of getting it repaired, and will be left without a means of summoning emergency assistance during this national health crisis. Let's all try to keep safe and healthy.

Possibly Entering the "smart phone" world

Howard Traxler
 

Hello all you cell phone experts out there.

I'm thinking of maybe getting a "smart phone" (my first).  I'm seeing an ad for US Cell on television, inwhich they offer a free phone if you change over.  The phone seems to be a Samsung S20 5G phone.  Wonder if anyone has this one and if it's a desirable phone and useable by a blind person?  Appreciate any thought on this one or on the US Cell service.  I was a US Cell customer for about 17 years up until 10 years ago.  But I had an assortment of flip phones that were popular at the time.

Thank you.

Howard

Accessible Samsung tv

David Mehler
 

Hello,

Does anyone have a Samsung tv? If so is it accessible or can it be
made so? We got a 65 inch curve 4k UHDTV (not mine but I would like to
use it occationally), I know nothing about 4k, ultra hd or anything so
explanations appreciated, and it was set up by a sighted individual.
They'll be using it primarily, but I was wondering if there's some
method perhaps on the remote, a toggle or something, to enable speech
feedback, then to turn said feedback off when I'm no longer using it?

Thanks.
Dave.

Re: Seeking advice about 128gb SD card and Sansa Clip Zip

Hello Smiling?  Laz put me on the right track, and I wound up using the software that you recommend because the command line format /fs:FAT32 g: went through a couple hours of doing its thing and then failed.  I now have my jazz library and some good books on my card.  All is right with my SD card world.  Thanks for your good recommendation.

If you haven’t already used the command line method (like you stated in an earlier message), you will need to use a third party utility such as the one shared below to successfully format the drive to FAT32.

 

Ridgecrop Consultants Ltd:

http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm

 

The link upon this page that you are going to want to use is titled:

Click to download guiformat.exe

This is portable software so it will not install anything to your machine.

 

Windows will ask you if you want to run the file. Click yes. It will ask you if you want to allow it to have (Admin) access to your computer. Click yes.

The program will start. Select a drive to format. Click Start. Your drive should be formatted in a few seconds

 

In the "FAT32 Format" window, select the drive to format and type a volume label if you want to. Select the " Quick Format " option, and then click the "Start" button. A window pops up to warn you that all data on the drive will be lost. Click "OK" to format the drive. Formatting with this tool is much quicker than the command line method. One thing to note here: you'll need to close any open File Explorer windows before you format the drive. If you don't, the tool will interpret the drive as being used by another app and formatting will fail. If this happens to you, just close the File Explorer windows and try again. No need to relaunch the tool or anything.

Re: Wireless Connection Gone In Laptop

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi group,

 

I’m a fan of the system restore feature, but only after I’ve tried other options. I was going to suggest running the troubleshooter, that might fix the issue or at least give you more detail about the problem. And there are good help articles accessed with a Google search which can take you through steps to troubleshoot the problem yourself.

I’m sorry your issue has apparently gotten worse. Hopefully all is working fine now.

 

Best,

Norma

I’m not sure just what the computer is doing or not doing.  I think you said that Narrator crashes.  This may not solve the problem, but you can undo restore points.  I don’t think it always works properly but if the machine is going to have to be reset otherwise, you may want to try it.  You may want to wait for other suggestions.

The subject says it all.

Free audiobook, “Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a Blindness Perspective”

Meet Me Accessibly, a guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a blindness perspective

If you attend meetings online, you’ve probably heard of Zoom Cloud Meetings. They’re now the platform of choice for 50% of the Fortune 50 companies, and are used by many universities worldwide.

Zoom Cloud Meetings are just as popular with small businesses and community groups as well, offering a generous set of features absolutely free, and even more power for a small monthly fee.

If by chance you’ve not heard of Zoom Cloud Meetings, then you’re missing out on one of the most powerful online meeting solutions around. And you know what’s really cool? The accessibility of its apps and website are excellent. Bid those days of frustrating, inaccessible, fiddly collaboration and content sharing tools goodbye.

Meet Me Accessibly is a three-hour audiobook, written and narrated by Jonathan Mosen. It takes you from the basics of attending your first Zoom meeting, all the way to content sharing of your video and audio from a computer or iDevice.

Just some of the things Jonathan shows you in Meet Me Accessibly include:

  • Attending your first Zoom meeting
  • Working with and configuring the Windows client
  • Working with and configuring the iOS client
  • Creating compelling and effective online meetings of up to 100 participants for discussions or webinars
  • Using Zoom to have a sighted person take control of your computer, even a Mac user can control a Windows PC and vice versa
  • Running visually attractive presentations using PowerPoint, or by sharing the output of any application on your computer
  • Using the high-quality, low-latency audio capabilities of Zoom for one-on-one conversations
  • Holding global Internet and telephone conferences
  • Taking advantage of the exceptional audio for use in a podcast, including creating separate audio files for every participant for use in a multitrack editor such as Amadeus Pro or Reaper
  • Recording meetings and podcast interviews on your iPhone, thanks to the Zoom cloud recording capability
  • Recording top-quality tech demonstrations thanks to the easy-to-use ability for Zoom to capture your computer’s sound
  • Sharing the screen and audio from apps on your iDevice
  • Enabling stereo audio
  • Turning off Zoom’s audio processing for pure, top-quality sound
  • Scheduling meetings
  • Holding instant meetings
  • Using your personal meeting ID

As you can see, there’s so much that Zoom can do, you’ll wonder how you lived without it.

In Meet Me Accessibly, Jonathan uses JAWS for Windows, the world’s most used screen reader when working with Windows. When discussing Zoom’s mobile offerings, he uses an iPhone running VoiceOver, the screen reader built into all iOS products. But the user interface of Zoom adheres closely to accessibility standards, so even if you use a different platform or screen reader, you should still be able to glean much from the demonstrations and descriptions.

Download Meet Me Accessibly free

To help any blind person who may need to telecommute during the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made Meet Me Accessibly free to download. You may distribute it for download anywhere, as long as the files are not modified in any way.

I’m not sure just what the computer is doing or not doing.  I think you said that Narrator crashes.  This may not solve the problem, but you can undo restore points.  I don’t think it always works properly but if the machine is going to have to be reset otherwise, you may want to try it.  You may want to wait for other suggestions.

Well, after I did the restore point, now the computer appears to have died.  So, on to another options.

I figured it out.  Actually, it’s pretty straightforward.  I’ll let you all know what happened.

I don’t have Windows 10.  I’ll let those who do describe how it is done.  I’ll only say that if you know how to use the start menu search, searching for System Restore may well find what you want.  But there again, since I don’t have Windows 10, I won’t explain how to use it since my explanation for Windows 7 may not match the Windows 10 interface.

Hey Gene,
 
I thought about that.  Can you remind me exactly how to get to the restore points?  Thanks.

Others may have other solutions.  You may want to see if they or some of them work.  One thing you can try, now or later, is to run a system restore point.

I just got a message on my laptop which is running Windows 10 that I can’t connect to the Internet.

It looks like there is a driver failure in the wireless card.  Any solution as to how this can be fixed?  Thanks.
