Re: Do any of the book players record in stereo?

Evan Reese
 

Yes, the Book Sense records in stereo.
Make sure it’s set to stereo in the Recording Settings menu. Also, make sure it’s set to Line In and Not Microphone. Then plug a stereo patchcord into it and you’ll get stereo recording.
For best fidelity, you probably want to set it to wav instead of mp3. I’m pretty sure it only records at 128kbps and I don’t think there’s any way to change that.
There are several sampling rates you can choose from though, so you’ll want to check to be sure it’s on 44kHz.

The subject sums it up.  I don’t think that the Victor 2nd Generation records in stereo with 2 internal mics, but do any of the other ones?  Thanks for your help.

Re: firefox add on tabs

Skye
 

This is a setting within Firefox.   You can choose whether or not to automatically switch to the new tab when it opens.

Go to Tools > Options

On the General page, navigate to the Tabs section

Deselect the Checkmark in "When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately"

Hope this helps!

Also if you have the item locked and plug in an external device it will sometimes not start charging until you unlock the device.  This is normal

Josh,

It's possible that your lightning port could just need cleaning. Unfortunately, it may take sighted assistance in order to do this properly. See this article.

Or if I power it all the way off, unplug the charger, and plug it in, it then turns itself on and then will say charging. Why is this? Or is this a bug in the latest iOS? Other than that it is working fine.

samsung curve 4k UHDTV accessibility, roku, and accessible tv content?

David Mehler
 

Hello,

Is anyone using a Samsung 4k UHDTV? If so, does it have inbuilt
accessibility? If so, since I wouldn't be the primary user of it, can
accessibility be turned on and off via a toggle?

I don't know anything about this tv, my knowledge of tvs is back in
the nonflat screen days. If anyone knows what a curve 4k UHDTV
means/does please let me know.

If accessibility is toggleable on this tv I guess my next question is
how do I get content? We have a thing called a roku around that was
dropped off. BTW my lack of current knowledge is most likely coming
through in that I know what a roku looks like but not what it does.
Pointers/knowledge appreciated.

I've also got a spare Raspberry Pi 3B+ that I could put on an OS
called OSMC which looks like a media center/kodi app whatever that is,
not sure if it is accessible either.

If I can get something accessible working, and actually use this
thing, aside from looking at it and using it as a paperweight, i'm
wondering if there's still SAP programming around, at least meant
separate audio programming I believe.

Any input appreciated.


Thanks.
Dave.

also Notepad is gone?

You can remove files from that list by tapping the
Applications key to open a context menu with three
items--Open, Properties, and Remove from list. Select this
latter menu item and pres ENTER to remove the selected file
from the list. Note that this does not delete the file, only
its name is removed from the lit.

Yes, Victor, they are releasing an Orbit Reader 20 plus for $700. Then, an Orbit Reader 40 with cursor routing buttons for $1399. The 20 plus will have no cursor routers. They are also releasing an Orbit writer that is just a braille writer keyboard to use with a smart device for $99. You can use Bluetooth. You can upgrade your Orbit Reader 20.
