sharon.hooley43

How to use it.
1. Save it on your computer. I save it to the folder, My Documents.
2. Press enter to open it.
3. Arrow down. You will see the day and the month.
4. Find the day of week and the month.
5. When you want to enter a simple note, tab once and edit just like in =
word.
6. Save it with control+s. Then shift+tab.
You can continue if more entries are needed.
At any time you can make changes to your entries saved.
Then close it with alt+F4.
Great for the blind.

Gianfranco

Hi all!

I've been experiencing some weird volume drops.  I'll be working with =
Windows XP Pro and Jaws 6.1.  Suddenly the Jaws and some of the Windows =
sounds get much softer, while the volume of a game, and the opening and =
closing of Windows sounds remain high.  I had set Jaws to use my main =
sound card because Magic Jack was messing with it and I didn't know how =
to make Jaws work otherwise.  What could be going on here?

Thanks!

Hi all,
Harry here.
I have had 2 very long days.  I have ben very angry about a few things, =
and something told me, "Harry, instead of being angry about it, throw =
your weight around, and do something about it.
So, here's what has come out of it, and I want your help, if you're in =
this with me, ok?
Below my signature, I've pasted in a letter with language for a piece of =
legislation, and I need you all to get this to people such as:
1.  your congressman/woman
2.  Your 2 US. Senaters from your state.
3.  the ACB, and your state affiliate.
4.  The NFB, and it's state affiliate.
Also, you need to send this to as many blind email lists as you're =
subscribed to.
Let's show these companies we're mad as heck, and we're not gonna take =
it any more.
Now as you'll see, after the word Dear, in the letter, you fill in the =
Congressman/woman's name. For example,
"Dear Congresswoman Miller:"
Also, there is no signature below the sincerely,
so you must sign it.
Let's get'um folks.  We've laid down long enough, and it's time for a =
full court press!
Also, for those of you who want an update on the Motorola situation, =
here it is.
I filed a complaint with the FCC against Motorola, and in a week, I've =
never seen a company run so fast in my life.  All I know is, I'm holding =
right now, in my hands, a Motorola q9C, and it's on the Boost network!
So, 1 person can make the difference, and more than 1?  Well you know =
what will happen if we all get involved on an issue, right?
Harry
Dear ,

I am writing to give you some ideas on the future of the internet and =
cell phones, and a piece of legislation I'd like you to write.

The following things need to be in the legislation:

1.  Force Apple to allow any application to run on the iphone, and not =
just their programs.

2.  Force internet service providers, (ISPs), not to have caps on =
people's internet service, no matter how big the files are.  This is =
what Comcast tried to do in 2008.  Other ISPs are talking about it now.

3.  We must have net neutrality, and prohibit ISPs from allowing and =
preferring certain types of data over other types of data.

4.  Require all cell phones to remain unlocked.  Right now, carriers =
lock cell phones, and do not let users install any piece of software =
other than the software that the cellular phone companies want =
installed.

5.  We need to require major league baseball, the national football =
league, and the national basketball association to allow radio stations =
to stream their games over the internet, which is forbidden now.  I =
called our flagship station for our local NBA team, because the game was =
streaming, and they stopped it, right in the middle of the game.  I was =
told by the board op running the station's control board, "sorry, we had =
to stop streaming this game and all games in the future, because they're =
requiring folks to pay for listening to games, and they want them to =
listen to it on their network.  I had the same experience when calling =
our team's flagship station, concerning our major league baseball team.

6.  Require Microsoft too make their computers speak right out of the =
box, using a fully functioning screen reader.  Blind people should not =
have to pay more money for just using a screen reader to read the =
screen!

7.  Require that Microsoft make windows 7 to look just like windows xp, =
with a start menu, folder views and list views in menus.

8.  Require all cell phone manufacturers to make cell phones with built =
in screen readers for the blind from out of the box, and the blind =
should not have to pay for a separate screen reader to read the screen =
when sighted folks don't have to.

Sincerely,

=20
