I didn’t even know Chrome had an RSS reader. I’ve used a stand-alone one for years, because I have a ton of RSS feeds and I access them from multiple devices. I’d actually be interested in the answer to this as well. Might be worth investigating. I do know Chrome doesn’t alert you to the presence of RSS feeds by default—I have an extension for that.

Hi Justin, 

I don't know if this will work, but you could try control and a. That should perform the select all, and all of your songs should be checked. 

Good luck.

Hello Group,

 

All of my itunes library is stored on my PC, with many playlists from my library available to access on my I-phone.

My issue is that I have inadvertently unchecked all the songs in my Itunes library. I have tried using control and left mouse button to check a specific song, thinking that this action might place all other songs in a checked status. However, this hasn’t worked.

I assume that using  JAWS, there is a command within Itunes or a process that allows me to check all the songs in my library.

 

I would appreciate any and all assistance.

 

Best,  Justin

Hi.

 

Does anyone know what the name of the driver that is required for a sim card to work in the El-Braille? I have a Verizon sim that is active, and want to use it in the El-Braille but for some reason when I insert the sim it’s not detecting it.

 

Thanks.

Are you sure that is a sim card reader.  My guess is that you are more likely to have a micro-sd card reader, they are of very similar size.

to confirm that I wanted to be subscribed. I replied to it, but I still
haven't received a welcome message. That was over an hour ago. I

By the way, the Braille Display User's group home page explicitly states:

under its Group Settings section.   This means that subscriptions will wait until a moderator or the group owner clears them, so don't expect a "virtually instant" response saying you're subscribed to the group when you send a subscription request e-mail.

Actually, I don’t think the problem was a case sensitivity issue. the first incorrect address was given as:

 

braille-displays-users+subscribe@groups.io

 

The correct address is:

 

braille-display-users+subscribe@groups.io

 

As you can see, display does not have an S at the end, and that was what was gumming up the works.

Hi.
It’s me again. I’m finally getting the Focus 40 Blue 5th Generation display this coming week, and I have some very basic questions.
First, where can I get a refreshable braille display for dummies tutorial? I don’t think this necessarily deals with the Focus itself. I have used one over ten years ago, but I did very basic things with it, and I’d like to learn more advanced tricks for using one. I know JAWS has some documentation in the help topics, but I don’t know if that’s as simple as I need.
My second question concerns email lists for braille displays in general. Many of the questions I have are more Focus specific rather than JAWS, so I figure that there are other braille display lists out there that can give me good information. If there are web sites as well, I would like to learn about them. I know I can read the user’s manual, but I’m just wondering if there are some helpful hints that I could learn.
Those are my questions. I can’t wait until I get the Focus and pair it with my iPhone and PC and use it. I’m also looking forward to using it by itself to take notes and read books. I feel like a kid at Christmas, and I’ll just have to patiently wait for it to come.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Have a blessed day, and don’t work too hard.

That's one of the advantages of learning at least the rudiments of the Groups.io website.  It makes it very easy to use the "Find or Create a Group" function at the top of every page.   The addresses for the Braille Display Users Group are


which has been active up through earlier this evening.

There is also a group dedicated strictly to the BrailleMe  (which hasn't seen any fresh activity since December 2018):

David Csercsics
 

Yes, I have found scant information on braille as well, though I have a Brailliant BI 40 as I prefer to use braille rather than speech myself, but I mostly use it with NVDA and the braille Extender add-on as JAWS does braille differently, and I haven't worked out if it's better or not. The JAWS documentation for Freedom Scientific displays is good, but not so much for other manufacturers. I found that for Brailliant BI 40, there was an error where it said in HumanWare's documentation that you could press the combination space with the letter d on the brailliant's braille keyboard for delete, and it would delete. I found it didn't work out of the box, and when I checked JAWS keyboard manager, the "delete" script was not assigned to a key. So I fixed it. Not sure whose bug this is, but getting braille to work in JAWS with something other than a Freedom Scientific product is a few extra steps. I'll join that braille list as well, and see if we can get some extra information. I think this stuff is just not tested as well as speech, and that's a shame, because typically those of us who use braille prefer it. But maybe we could better document what works with what program and what doesn't.
