moderated Dual Monitors?

Claudia
 

Hi All,

I am about to start a new job with the federal government. I am totally blind and will be using JAWS with a laptop.
I think I know the answer to this, but are there any advantages to my having dual monitors? Webcam and speakers are built into the laptop.
I don’t see any reasons for needing them, but I’ve also never been offered this before and just want to make sure I’m covering all my bases.
Thanks.

Claudia

I think both VLC and Windows Media Player can play them. The problem is not that they can’t be played, but that they are encrypted. SO you need to break the encryption or use a player that can work with the DRM if you bought the thing from Audible. Maybe WMP can do this.

To my knowledge, there is no other desktop player for the Audible books. I can play the downloaded books to the Victor Stream and play them on it, which is my preferred method. The PlexTalk will no longer play the newer file format that Audible is using but it will play the older AA format.

If the books are downloaded to your computer, it is no trouble to create the desired folders and put copies in whatever folder you like.

The last idea is to convert them to MP3 format and then you can play them with a number of desktop players.

Karen,

There are definitely meetings where the host doesn’t want others to speak. I’ve been on some where you can raise your hand and the host will unmute you, but, especially if the call is being recorded and/or is a more professional presentation, they may expect you to chat in questions so they can curate and filter.

True permission is not required but to just hold down the space bar to talk, could be considered as rude. When we had a guide dog conference call with 80 participants, the presenter learned very quickly that to just let people talk or ask questions, resulted in continuous talking over people.  Thus, I would suggest put up your hand to chat and waiting for the host to let you answer is far more polite.  IMHO.

Hi, Karen. In most meetings, permission to talk is not required. Pressing the Space Bar is just a quick way to briefly unmute. It's an alternate to ALT plus A to unmute and stay unmuted. The Space Bar just unmutes you as long as the Space Bar is held down.

Using Windows, its Alt + A.This is a toggle.

 

If you are muted upon entry to the room and recording has started or the host has started recording, you need to accept the host recording to be able to unmute yourself upon the host allowing you to unmute.

 

You can also unmute yourself by holding down the spacebar for the duration you are talking, this is like keying a microphone as a ham radio operator.

I’m happy to go off list with people who use it or can lead me in the right direction. At this point, it needs to be that specific program, because I would be working or making recordings with others who are using it.

Hello…

 

Not sure how much I can help as I don’t use Audacity much at the moment, sticking with the one-track editor Goldwave. However I have used Audacity in the past and yes, it is quite usable from the keyboard by a screen-reader users. I believe there is, or was, even an Audacity for Blind mailing list; perhaps someone else here could point you there. There’s a VIP software guide made by David Bailes 9sp) as well. He has been pretty good with updating stuff but I’m not sure what the last version is. This was done with JAWS users in mind but everythign there pretty much pertains to all screen-readers for Windows as there isn’t much that’s JAWS specific.

Check out the semi-official wiki here:

https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Audacity_for_blind_users

 

And the VIP software guide. This pertains to version 3.0.3, which, if not the latest version, is pretty damn close and things won’t have changed much if at all.

they have a list at

audacity4blind@...,

so if you can find the subscribe info that is a good place to talk about it.

There are JFW configuration files and all kinds of tutorials on the software.

Greetings,

 

I apologize if this is off topic for this list, but I’m not sure where or who to ask. I would like to be in touch with anyone who currently uses the latest version of the Audacity software with JAWS. If things go as I am hoping, I may be using it for some recording. I need to know how accessible and operatable it is on a laptop computer with JAWS. I am looking for perhaps some tutorials or even classes online. If it is accessible with JAWS, I’d like to learn as much as I can about it.

I’m happy to go off list with people who use it or can lead me in the right direction. At this point, it needs to be that specific program, because I would be working or making recordings with others who are using it.

Hi, Karen. In most meetings, permission to talk is not required. Pressing the Space Bar is just a quick way to briefly unmute. It's an alternate to ALT plus A to unmute and stay unmuted. The Space Bar just unmutes you as long as the Space Bar is held down.

Thanks. I take it that I would need to hold down the spacebar only if I’ve been given permission  to talk?

Using Windows, its Alt + A.This is a toggle.

 

If you are muted upon entry to the room and recording has started or the host has started recording, you need to accept the host recording to be able to unmute yourself upon the host allowing you to unmute.

 

You can also unmute yourself by holding down the spacebar for the duration you are talking, this is like keying a microphone as a ham radio operator.

Hi,

I was listening to a zoom meeting that was being recorded and had everyone muted. I noticed that there was a raise my hand button, however, I never could find the unmute button. Was it just not there? Or did I miss it? What is the shortcut key to toggle the mute button on and off?
