No one has mentioned the breill support on the android is no where as good as the I Phone. Jonathon Moson still thinks the Android phones are behind in both the screen reader and the breill support.

also, the braille keyboard seems to be a bit of a pain. i also dont want to have to attach a keyboard to it, as this defeats the purpose of having a phone you can carry around with you.

on the other hand, i have heard, that apple's voice over is much better.

again, training seems to be the problem. i should be able to get my hands on an ifone.

any thoughts?

In Settings for DuckDuckGo, throw the toggle for "Infinite scroll" to On.   It will present quite a few more results before the need to activate the "More Results" button occurs.

I cannot find anything that allows you to tell it to return, say, 50 or 100 results per page.  But when Infinite Scroll is on, while no longer literally infinite, you get quite a few more results on each page.

To my knowledge, there is no DuckDuckGo Browser for the PC platform.  They have introduced one for Android, though:  DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser for Android.  All of the sites talking about using this for Windows end up talking about using an Android Emulator to run it, which is way more trouble than it's worth since.

In the PC world, it's a search engine and/or browser extension, but not a full-blown web browser.

Is the printer supposed to also be a Wifi printer?

If so, you will need to consult the manufacturer’s instructions on how to set it up on the Wifi network.

 

If not, what Glen said is exactly what needs to happen.

Of course, consulting with the printer manufacturer is always useful.

Also, you will need to go to the printer settings on the computer it is connected to and set it as a shared printer, or you can connect the printer to your router.

That is the best way.

It helps to install the printer software on the other computers.
Then after the software is installed, you will look for a network printer, either in the printer software, or in control panel under printers.

Tyler Wood
 

Hi,

This is all down to personal preference.

While Android devices don’t get as many software updates as iOS devices, the screen reader still receives updates independently of the software version, which means that, in a lot of cases, changes to Talkback can be pushed out more quickly and efficiently instead of waiting for iOS updates.

A lot of good things on both sides now, though. You can snatch up a budget Android phone, like the Moto g 7 or moto e series for less than an iPhone SE and get really good performance for most tasks, apart from being just a little slower in things like OCR. You can then pop in a Micro sd card to add some cheap storage.

Both companies are cracking down on security, and while apple is the most talked about in regards to assistive technology, Android is right up there in regards to most tasks that users perform on a handset. It really depends what you want out of a phone. I still have a Samsung Galaxy s4 from 2013. It’s running Android 5.1 – we’re now on Android 10 – and while it may not be the quickest, it still gets around just fine for most tasks. It also isn’t my daily driver – that is a OnePlus 6t which I love along with an iPhone 7. Apple really has software longevity on older devices going for it. That’s a huge plus, especially when someone spends money on one of their more flagship devices like the upcoming iPhone 12.

Android also allows one to do stereo recording in audio for those that like that sort of thing. I like having a file browser similar to my computer where I can copy and paste files wherever I may choose. I like copying files directly to the phone over USB with the computer rather than going through iTunes. I don’t like that companies make Android such an afterthought – voice dream reader has yet to release an actual change log for what has been added for Android, for instance, meanwhile iOS gets amazingly detailed ones. I like that iOS now has custom gestures. So many positives to both sides.

Nowadays both Android and iOS take from each other, there are just so many good ideas these developers have and it's of course normal that if Android developers come up with an awsome idea that iOS may implement something very similar and vice versa.

I think there is very little point to bash one platform over the other just as there is no point in bashing Jaws over NVDA or the other way around or Windows over Mac OS etc.

All of these platforms and systems nowadays are mature, advanced and it's good people have choices. I personally prefer iOS and Apple has given users many options to customize the UI. In iOS 14 they are going a step further by allowing users to change their default mail client and browser so if you wanted you could set Outlook as your default mail program or use Edge or Chrome as your default browser.

Once again, this is just my opinion, but Apple's control over both hardware and software has many good sides as well, their walled garden approach makes iOS somewhat less prone to exploits, a lot fewer devices make it easier for app developers to keep up with changes and one big thing for me is how Apple supports older devices for years and years with the latest software. In the most recent WWDC keynote Apple announced that iOS 14 will still support the iPhone 6S/6S Plus and the original iPhone SE, this means phones which were released in 2015 get the newest OS released in 2020. Not including iOS 9 which came with the iPhone 6S/6S Plus this is 5 major updates and support for 6 versions of iOS if you count the original iOS 9. If somebody bought an iPhone 6S in the fall of 2015 this means by the fall of 2021 when iOS 15 comes out and when, I assume, the iPhone 6S will not be supported any more, you can use your iPhone for 6 years and have the latest OS version. Of course you won't have all the features of the last couple of versions as iPhone 6S hardware may not support some of the newer stuff, but that is still impressive and very different from the more fractured landscape of Android where carriers may not push new updates beyond the first year or two.

I have a friend in Germany who bought an iPhone 5S in 2013 and every time a new phone comes out as recently the new iPhone SE he thinks about upgrading and then he says that for what he does his iPhone 5S works so well and he like sthe smaller form factor so much that he ends up not doing it. He had the battery replaced once in that time and I think even the biggest Android fan must admit that it's impressive that you can still use an almost 7-year old device.

Of course personally I also never recommend people buy a new iPhone now as we are only 3 months and possible a bit less away from the new 2020 phones being released. If you do definitely buy the new SE (if you are looking for a budget phone) or maybe last year's iPhone 11, but given the rumours and even some of what Apple has recently confirmed with respect to the iPhone 12 this fall, I would totally hold off. For one thing if you do plan to keep your phone for years to come, the iPhone 12 series phones will have 5G support which will be rolling out over the next couple of years and it would seem that Apple will actually drop the price by $50 as well as include a 20 Watt fast charger and Lightning to USB-C cable, another $50 value unless the iPhone 12 of course switches from Lightning to USB-C in the frist place.

If not more.   I constantly have to tell people who think taking the leap from PC to Mac, or iPhone to Android, or any of a number of similar leaps is going to solve their issues and frustrations that it won't.   And it definitely won't whenever you are new to anything.

If you happen to already be intimately familiar with one operating system's or device's way of doing things, then go to another, you also have the added frustration of having to unlearn a lot of what you already know in the context of the new ecosystem.  A great deal of frustration comes from "doing what I've always done" before thinking about it, but having it either not work or do something entirely different than what one had been accustomed to.

Learning a brand new device and ecosystem is a long, flat learning curve.  You do not go "from zero to stunningly competent" in a short period of time.  You pick up the essentials, then slowly learn other stuff in dribs and drabs.

Hi Norma,

Yes. I get the same behaviour and use the same workaround.

I wonder if this is a hangover from Google Chrome scripts now that Edge is chromium based as shift+f6 is the correct keystroke in that browser.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi group,

 

I’m using current versions of Jaws and Edge. When Edge has finished downloading a file, Jaws says “Download complete… Press Shift+F6 to cycle to the downloads bar area." This key combo puts me in the address bar, not the download area. I think the prompt should say F6 not shift f6. Anyone else noticed this?

 

Thanks,

Norma

For the record, the Google Disability Support Team can remote into an Android phone to assist with resolving an issue. And, of course, they can also help with issues regarding Chrome, G Suite, YouTube and Chromebooks.

I also think iOS is just more intuitive and even after all these years when both platforms have matured, iOS is in my view more polished and easier to use.

There is a load of material about iOS and iPhones out there, www.Applevis.com is just one example, Apple has an accessibility support line as well as email address and if you call their support and need help they can even connect to your phone and see what you are doing.

There are email lists for both Android and iOS, the Viphone list is one I have been on for the last 10 years or so since I started using an iPhone.

If you really want to use a keyboard you can actually get Apple's camera connection cable and use it to connect a USB keyboard, but in my opinion a Bluetooth keyboard makes much more sense with a mobile device and there are lots of great options out there from Logitech as well as others.

As for price any high-end Android phone nowadays costs just as much as the high-end iPhones, yes, you can probably pick up a cheap Android phone for $200 or so, but then again the new iPhone SE 2 which was recently released also is not that expensive and from all I heard on the Viphone list as well as in general it's fantastic phone.

I guess it all depends on what you plan to do with the phone, for me being able to transfer information from my PC to the phone by copying and pasting is not very important, I have an Apple Music subscription so I never store mucis on the device any more, I do just about all my audio book listening on Audible and the odd book I have in MP3 I can easily transfer to Voice Dream Reader via Dropbox.

I consider to be a pretty profficient user of my iPhone, but I absolutely don't believe in being able to replace a computer with my iPhone, I don't compose long texts on my phone, if I have to type a longer email or want to have an on-going text chat on Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp or other app I do use my Bluetooth keyboard. I have a Logitech K780 which I use via its USB dongle as my primary keyboard for my laptop and if I want to use it wih my iPhone all I have to do is press FN+F2 and it switches over, when I'm done I press F1 and I'm back on my PC.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

I have both, and in terms of ease of use with regard to the gestures, it is my opinion that the iPhone is much easier to operate.

On the other hand, with Android, I can have Eloquence for the voice, and I can simply copy and paste to and from my computer to the Android phone.

With Android, you can get a USB adapter and plug in a desktop keyboard or anything USB, you can't do that with IOS.

hi folks,

 

i know that this is not the forum for this question, but maybe one of you good people might have some ideas as to where i should go.

currently, i have an old nokia phone about 300 years of age.

i have decided to take the great leap into the unknown and start using a modern tap screen phone.

i have a samsung android phone with talkback on it, but it is proving to be somewhat of a trouble.

i would say, that it is just because i am new to it, but web sites offering training tips seem to be non existent.

also, the braille keyboard seems to be a bit of a pain. i also dont want to have to attach a keyboard to it, as this defeats the purpose of having a phone you can carry around with you.

on the other hand, i have heard, that apple's voice over is much better.

again, training seems to be the problem. i should be able to get my hands on an ifone.

any thoughts?

anyone prefer one over the other?

cheers,

pat
