Hi Ralph,

Here, I am really happy with my Trkez Air from Aftershokz. Get a description of it behind this link:
https://aftershokz.com/products/air?variant=5304364204069

I admit that bone conduction technology may appear quite disruptive but since it is very responsive with all the screen readers I'm used to, and with my Android smartphone, the only reason why I am still using regular headphones is when I want to listen to music.

The 6 hours battery life is when you use it for continuous audio streaming but in regular screen reader use conditions, I can keep it running 8 hours or so without needing to recharge it. I bought it two years ago now and the battery is performant enough yet.

Finally, although the option to avoid Bluetooth connection cutoffs while running Jaws 2020 is definitely an enhancement, my Trekz Air remains still useable with this option turned off. However, since turning it on does not seem to significantly drain the battery more than before, I always keep it on on my laptop.

HTH, Have a nice day. Chris D

Are there any Bluetooth headphones that are responsive enough to use with my laptop? It would be a bonus if the same ones worked well with my iPhone XR.

Thanks.

Hello,
You will have to activate the "trim button" that lies above split
button and not the trim slider.
On activating trim button few more options will appear in the same
window those controls are
Start trim slider and end trim slider and few others.
You can adjusts the slider with left/ right arrow keys. Jaws informs
the time for seconds and mili seconds for the video is trimmed.
After adjusting the slider hit the done button and then you can listen
your trim video by hitting play button so as to check whether it is
trimmed correctly or not.
Thanks

Hi,
Yes, you can do.
After keeping the long video in story board navigate to controls like
"start trim and end trim. If you want to trim the beginning portion or
end portion you can use these controls. for trimming the video in
between you will have to explore as I haven't done this therefore I am
not aware of it.
After trimming
the video you can check by activating the play button and once done,
activate "finish button" Inside the window, activate "export button"
and choose a location to save the file.
Your trimmed video will be ready and your original file will be
available in the collection tab of the photo app.
Hope this is helpful.

Hello,
You may try Microsoft Photo app.
I am not clearly sure about the accessibility with Jaws but I tried with
Narrator and it is working quite good.
If Narrator is accessible then of course Jaws will be.
Steps:
1. Open Photo app from start menu.
2. Navigate to new video menu and select blank video and hit enter.
3. Give a name to your video and hit ok button.
4. In the next window activate add button > from this PC and select the
file
you want to upload.
(Note: You will have to upload the files one by one).
5. After adding all the files in the window select the files in the order
you want to keep . Remember, the last file that you uploaded is selected
by
default therefore you will have to unselect it so as to manage the
correct
order of your video.
6. Now navigate to "place in story board" and hit enter. Now all the
files
are placed in story board in the order in which you have selected.
7. You can choose play button to listen to your merged video . You can
also
explore the options like background music, 3D effects and so on if you
want.

8. If you want you also try the trim option to trim your video in case
you
need.
9. Now go to finish button and hit enter.
10. In the window, select export . Choose file dialog box will appear
select
the location where you want to save the file. Your exporting will begin
and
once done the created video will play automatically.

You can do many things, when you use a WPE or TWPE

Completely erase a system drive, which, obviously, you could not do, if you wer running a session of Windows.

You can use a 3rd party software package to restore a backed up image of a system drive, created by, for example, Macrium or Image for Windows, again, you cannot do that, if you are in a Windows session.

2 examples of why you need to use, a WPE or, a TWPE or, something else, which allows you to do certain things,outside the constrictions while any operating system is running.

Marty Hutchings
 

I am also looking for a video editor. I want to take the audio from a video and replace it with audio that was recorded and mastered to a different location or DAW at the same time that the video was recorded. As long as the video or the mastered audio track starts at the same time and neither has been sped up or slowed down, they should sync up.
Is there an ap for that?

Jasmine Kotsay
 

Hello everyone,
I have a question for whoever can answer. What I am looking for is a type of headphones that can be used with both an iPhone and laptop, both wireless and with a wire, that are noise canceling and light weight, foldable, and low priced. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

David Diamond
 

Have you tried pairing them with your laptop?  I know I got a nice pair of earbuds from amazon with a built in microphone.  Although paired with my XR, I’ve not tested them with my laptop as, frankly I never saw the need.   I use my XR when out in the backyard with the dogs and on a call.  The XR sits in the holder for my iPhone in the lawn chair while I am walking around the yard checking up on the dogs. With the built in microphone I hear the person and they can hear my response to their comment. Whether there is Bluetooth headphones that can be paired to more then one device, I don’t know.  Thus your enquiry.

Alright, hopefully it’s not too late then, but see if you can’t get a direct link. I think you’ll have to use regular facebook site for this, probably.

Hey.

 

Have you tried a search?

Can you get someone from the fundraiser/who has access to the page of that fundraiser to post a link to you?

m.facebook.com may not do it; I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a fundraiser page to verify if that’s true or not but, there are a lot of facebook features that are closed off to users of m.facebook.com

Hello,

I am needing to find a fund-raiser on facebook live.  I am using Jaws 2019 and Windows 10.  I have explored on m.facebook.com and facebook.com and still don’t have a clue.  The people running the fund-raiser don’t have a clue how to help potential blind supporters.  Can anyone offer some guidance?

Thanks!

Tammy

Louise,

We’ve been having some conversations about it recently on this list.  It works OK to attend a meeting, but not easy to chat, annotate, etc. while in a meeting.  You just have to be patient as it requires a lot of tabbing.  Some say it works better if you are using the desktop app version, which I’m just starting to work with.  I also find the iphone app pretty accessible.  Are you trying to host a meeting or just attend?

I don't think anyone knows when the next JAWS update will be released. It will be when Vispero has enough bugs fixed to make it worth it to release an update, and when they are fairly sure the "fixes" work on a wide range of system configurations.

Just an observation on this:  If you have actual 32-bit PC hardware, you seriously need to be budgeting for new(er) hardware now.

The ancient (and it's probably almost 20 now, maybe 15-18) Gateway machine with the Pentium Dual Core in it was already 64-bit hardware, though it was produced when 32-bit Windows still dominated, so it was actually shipped with 32-bit Windows 7.  At one point, after upgrading to 32-bit Windows 10, I did a completely clean reinstall so that I could go from 32-bit Windows 10 to 64-bit, as there is no direct upgrade path.  But once you have a Windows 10 license associated with the machine, it's good for either bit-depth of Windows 10, so I went for it.

But actual 32-bit PC hardware is not just ancient, but prehistoric at this juncture.  I can't remember the last time I touched actual 32-bit hardware (as opposed to 32-bit software, which is still common and runs just fine on 64-bit systems).

Hi,

I’m not Brian, but I can confirm that:

Microsoft said in 2017 that computers (mostly tablets) shipping with certain Intel Atom processors (specifically, Atom Z2xxx) will not receive recent Windows 10 feature updates; for these machines, Anniversary Update (Version 1607) will be the last feature update, with support ending in January 2023.

Also, based on data I have and personal tests, I can say for certain that:

  1. 32-bit support is in slow decline, with OEM’s told to no longer produce 32-bit systems, specifically May 2020 Update (Version 2004( and later will not be preinstalled on 32-bit systems. Making matters complicated is mixed reception of Windows 10 on ARM64 chips.
  2. Certain Windows 10 features (mostly dealing with virtualization features) will require more recent processors. Specifically, any processor produced after 2006 are compatible, although more recent processors (say, produced after 2011) will let Windows take advantage of hardware features. Special note for VMware users: you’ll need second generation Intel Core (Sandy Bridge) or later processors for certain scenarios under May 2020 Update and later.
  3. Support for a given hardware by a Windows 10 feature update depends on manufacturers’ support duration and attitude, mostly concerning drivers.
  4. A system will be blocked from receiving feature updates if one or more of the following is true: unsupported hardware (see above), app compatibility (mostly dealing with older releases of an app that Microsoft is told it can cause issues), outdated drivers, and certain Windows settings.

 

A few weeks ago I wrote on another list that one must treat Windows 10 as a service, and that the days of waiting for years to get major releases is over. In other words, you must treat Windows 10 upgrades as akin to mobile OS upgrades, as it is essentially what it has come down to (at least attitude wise). It is both a good news and a bad news: good news because folks can get latest features quickly; bad news as we (screen reader developers and users) must keep up with changes at a faster pace.

Cheers,

Joseph

Brian, you wrote:

"It is now, and always has been, for sane users, a choice among what is currently under support for the hardware they have."

 

This is regarding a message I just received last night from another mailing list regarding a user who needs to upgrade his OS but is concerned about installing Windows 10. His concern has to do with the hardware support in that he's wondering how often Microsoft would choose to stop supporting specific hardware. I might have dismissed this concern but I do remember reading that a certain chipset would no longer support Windows 10 beyond a certain build. As I only read one report about this my assumption is that this is a rare event. However, the user wondered if it might be better to at least install an OS that he absolutely knows has three years of support as opposed to a more modern OS which could be yanked from support for his machine at any time. As this is likely a rare occurrence I'd personally take my chances with Windows 10 but I wanted to know how valid this concern is.

This begs the question: did your friend tell you their reasons for not upgrading to Windows 10 for free?

That would be interesting to know.

But regardless of the reason, I have gotten pretty adamant with my clients about Windows 10 or nothing if the question of upgrading arises.  It is completely unsafe to use any unsupported OS in contact with the internet.  Windows 8.1, unless someone already uses it, has been much more difficult for most Windows users to adjust to because it made a tectonic shift in presumptions about how things would be accessed, skewing almost entirely toward touch, that simply never materialized.  It's also got its clock ticking.

I won't even consider installing Windows 7 under any circumstances or any other version of Windows prior to 8.1, as they're all out of support.

And the sooner people, all of 'em, get over the idea that, "I don't like it," being a legitimate reason to reject an operating system the better.  It is now, and always has been, for sane users, a choice among what is currently under support for the hardware they have.  Choosing otherwise is willful stupidity (and, as someone who does this for a living, also would potentially expose me to liability I refuse to be exposed to).

There are things about Windows 10 I don't like, there were many things about Windows 8/8.1 I despised, there were things about Windows 7 I didn't like - see the pattern?  But what you actually use is what Microsoft supports, not what you personally prefer.

Brian,

Thanks for the clarification. In fact, my own desktop predates Windows 7 and is an Athlon dual core processor and it actually runs Windows 10 surprisingly well.

            You are correct that this is not only an exceedingly rare occurrence, but one that has only happened so far on the Cloverfield (I think, it's been a while) series of Intel processors, and because Intel decided to drop support for something Windows 10 depends upon.

            Unless his hardware predates the Windows 8 era, he has no more to worry about than anyone buying a computer today has, for all practical intents and purposes.  If it's from the Windows 7 era, then looking at what processor it has is appropriate.  I don't see any of the Intel i-series processors, which dominated the market, going out of support any time soon because they've been used all the way up through the present.

            Another thing that people need to realize is that computer hardware, any computer hardware, does have a finite service life as software (not just OSes) progresses.  I have an old machine with a Pentium Dual Core that can (and does) run Windows 10, but I wouldn't want to be using it now even if it were back on Windows 7 and Windows 7 were still supported.  It is far more likely that most of the computers that most of us here have today will be disposed of through our own choice than because Windows 10 support for their hardware disappears.
