looking for an intercom-doorbell system that works with the iPhone

Wayne Scott
 


I'm looking for an intercom-doorbell system that is accessible with the iPhone. I can't always hear whose on the other sid
of the door. I use VoiceOver and a braille display

Can anyone tell me how to lock in Sound on my iPhone.
Sometimes it gets muted and I have to go to:

Settings
General
Accessibility
VoiceOver
Audio to Souns.

bluetooth tethering for internet?

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

Also, I plan on Bluetooth connecting my iPod touch and android phone together so when out and about, if I wish, I can make the iPod borrow the android phone’s 5gigs of data or so that I have on it. Will this suck up twice as much data though? And will it at least be fast enough for some web surfing and checking of email if I want to use the touch for that, rather than the android phone?

iPod touch and braille screen input?

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

 

Will I be able to use the braille screen input feature on the 4.7-inch iPod touch screen? Or is it better to have an iPad in order to use braille screen input? If for some reason I cannot use braille screen input, I can at least Bluetooth connect my braille display, orbit reader20, and use its keyboard for braille input.

bad elf gps for lightning connector

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

Ok so since I decided on an iPod touch next I had to tackle, how do I get gps on my iPod touch? And I found the solution on amazon. It is the bad elf gps for lightning connector. This will add gps to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. So has anyone used this? If so, how do you like it?

Re: switching to iPhone or I-O-S-devices

Josh Kennedy
 

I found out I can bluetooth tether I-O-S devices to android and use a bluetooth hotspot. So therefore because I like both platforms because each has their advantages, I think I'll save money and get an iPod touch with 128gb of storage. And when I need data I'll bluetooth the iPod touch to the android phone and have the iPod touch borrow its data. I'll get the iPod touch 7th generation with the a10 fusion chip. But I do have a question, yes another one. If in the future I get an iPad, does the iPad's 8mp camera have a flash? Apple says you can scan documents with iPad so I am hoping it has a flash. I know the iPod touch camera has a flash. My android phone camera also has a flash. And with the iPod touch and my android phone in my pocket I can get rid of a good number of apps on the android, and use more apps exclusively on the touch and give the phone a break. And if I want good braille access I can bluetooth the orbit reader to the touch and even use braille screen input if I wish.

If you use Zoom, you can go into a meeting by yourself, share the screen and

Re: recommendations earpiece.

David Mehler
 

Hello,

It's a single earpiece, it does not cut off your hearing even when in.
It looks like a big earbud, the clip thing is detachable so that you
can flip it and put the earbud in whichever ear you prefer. It comes
with different sizes of ends to fit different ear sizes. It's got
power on/off, volume up/down, and pair/answer. It will tell you when
it's in pairing and when it's battery is low. According to jabra sales
(they're support is good too), it can pair with up to three different
devices, though i've never tried this so can't comment on audio from
multiple sources such as listening to music pumped in from a phone and
screen reader output from a tablet.

Re: problem with accessible podcatcher

 

Vicki,
Any ideas what the problem could be?
Probably a corrupted file. Have any of you edited the file manually for some reason?
This file, as far as I know, cannot be touched at all. You just need to use it exactly as it is.

I have an iPhone 7 Plus with 128 gigs of storage. In the future, I want to get a phone with at least 256 gigs of storage. I store several bard books, some photos, a couple of videos and other documents. I always like to have more than less.

So, do you guys mostly buy 32gb or 64gb iPhones? I cannot really think of a case where a huge 256gb phone for me? Well I would never fill that up. And come to think of it, a 128gb iPhone I would never fill up either. I try to stream whenever possible. The iPhone7 seems most economical the 32gb one for $450. Or do most visually-impaired folks opt for the most storage?

Re: Securing verizon?

Gene
 

If you mean they are getting messages that claim to come from Verizon but don't, that has nothing to do with passwords or anything else in their account settings.  It has nothing to do with their accounts being hacked.  Any spammer can send any e-mail message to anyone and make the to line seem as though it comes from anyone.  They can claim to be from the IRS, Social Security Administration, Verizon, your next door neighbor, anyone. 
 
If someone is using their account to send mail to others or looking at their e-mail, that's different and passwords should be changed. 
 
Your message sounds as though it’s the first of these things that is occurring.  They should just delete such messages or report them to the appropriate department at Verizon, though I think that is a waste of time.

Hello,

I've got some people who have verizon email addresses and they keep
getting what I know to be fake/phishing verizon emails. They're
getting a little peranoid and doing password change isn't calming them
even though they do it everytime. Is there a way to tighten up
verizon's email access on their side, maybe 2fa? I'm assuming they're
accessing either via phone (it would be an iPhone if it is) or pc
browser webmail access.

Hi all,

Greg, I just called the number on the web site (800) 458-1413 and they are indeed American Thermoform corp. I believe that they still sell the paper, though. Don't know if the pricing is different, but a phone call will clarify all this.
