I'm unaware of any, but you can subscribe to the braille-display-users mailing list, where there are bound to be ElBraille users.

Marty, from some notes I tucked away:

if you locate the executable (.exe) file that launches Itunes,
press the application key or shift+f10,
arrow down to and enter on send to submenu,
arrow down to and enter on desktop create shortcut.

if you don't know the what the executable is named, you can
press the windows key once, then again, then again, to cancel Cortana
from wanting to help and to bring up the search dialog,
type itunes, you want JAWS to say Itunes desktop application,
press the application key or shift+f10,

JAWS should announce the name Itunes followed by size and date followed
by if it is a shortcut.
press the application key or shift+f10,
arrow down to and enter on send to submenu,
arrow to and enter on desktop create shortcut.

there are probably other ways, hopefully others will say how.

Re: photo copier program

Richard Turner
 

Tom,

Text Cloner Pro might be an option though it isn’t free.  I cannot find a price on their web site, but I think it is around $100..

Text Cloner Pro does a good job and is most certainly way less expensive than Openbook or Kurzweil.  It does have the copy function you are looking for and works with any Twain compatible scanner.

You can call them on Monday, U.S. & Canada: 888-514-9117

Web site to read about it:

Re: List request

 

I agree with Richard, when I read messages I delete them when I read the message and if another person replies a day later referring to something but he does not have the thread in his message I found it is often unclear what this refers to. I guess in such a case I just also delete he message since I may not be able torespond not knowing the context, but while a long thread may not be always useful it doesn’t bother me since the new reply is at the top (if it isn’t then that is not my problem) so I don’t have to read the entire thread, but if I do want to refer back to something then I can or if I look for a link that was in a message 5 replies further down the thread then it is easy to find..

Hi Tom,

 

I am not sure if either of my thoughts fit, but in case they might here they are.

 

My Canon printer can photocopy without any special software.  There is a button I can press and a photocopy is produced.  Maybe your printer has a similar feature.  Check with tech support on this for the printer company.

 

Second before this printer was acquired, I used the photocopy feature in Open Book.  It is not free software, but if you already have this program, take advantage of the photocopy feature.

 

Good luck.
