that comes with the printer under the section entitled, Scanning documents

never used this particular model, but I have used HP multi-function machines
with the full-featured software suite and driver (the one for your machine

limited in any way to HP software, where a given piece of software would not
"play well" with a given screen reader and another screen reader would work
perfectly with it. It's always worth checking.

locked Re: looking for a good compute stick

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

Hi, I can only speak for the intel compute stick at this point. The linux version is five or 10 bucks cheeper, but it scrimps on hardware. In particular, I believe the linux version has only half the ram of the windows version. Intel tried to force windows on their high end compute stick by using microsoft proprietary boot loader, but it was hacked within 6 months of the release. Considering the difference in price vs performance, and assuming you have a resident sightling to help you tweak the boot options in bios, just go for the win version and install a supported hack. I used ubuntoo. I suggest you start by looking at the work that was done for ubuntoo, and then search to see if any one has done something similar for sonar.


I sure don't mind answering questions as long as I know the answers. If people use my amazon links, then I get money towards development on inclusiveandroid.com, so I do get something out of it too.

Have fun,

Erik

hi

My only question would be whether getting it with some form of linux or
no OS would be any cheaper? I have no objection to windows, obvious I
plan to run it along with my own linux distribution called sonar, but I
don't really want to be charged for the windows license when I already
have one. Are there off brands of the thing? I've come across a few, and
the only one that looks good other than the intel one which looks fine
is the acer chromebit, not chromebot. I don't know if chrome OS can be
duel booted and I wouldn't use the chrome OS part, I'd be buying it for
the hardware inside. As long as it can handle casual games, like the
windows 10 edition of killer instinct and emulated consoles like the
game cube and n64 it'll serve my needs nicely. Not that you have to
answer all of this or anything, the only reason I'm bringing it up is
because I can't really find a lot of info about them. Most of them say
simply intel hd graphics or nvidia graphics but don't go into detail
about the specific card, and I'd hate to buy one only to find out the
games lag or windows or linux doesn't work well on them. My one big
requirement is that they not have broadcom wireless or bluetooth chips
in them. I've had nothing but bad luck with broadcom, on both windows
and linux, and I just prefer to avoid them. This is not your job to
research everything, I can do my own research, just basically rambling
at this point lol.

These are both in your price range. Asside from them getting warm and
not
having a
n anolog audio jack, I'm pretty happy with the first generation. I
hacked it to ubuntoo using images and instructions I found online.
There's
an hdmi, one usb, and one SD on the first generation model. I haven't
looked closely at the second generation, but for the pricepoint, I would
definitely give it a glance.

I hope this helps,

My birthday is coming up next month and I'm stuck between an iPod

with enough storage, bluetooth, wi fi, and a micro sd card slot to use
as an every day laptop. I've looked around a little, but they're quite
expensive, about the cheapest I've run across that sounds like it
might be powerful enough to run both windows 10 and sonar linux well
is the acer chromebot, which is around 90 dollars. The thing about
chrome OS devices is that I don't know a thing about them. They're
linux underneath the google, but I don't know if they're as easy to
duel boot as a regular x86 or x64 pc is. Does anyone know of a good
device that would do this for at least a reasonable price? I'd say
around my absolute top would be $150, and for that it had better be
top of the line or mellisa will ... well she won't be happy. I don't
have many requirements, but I'd like it to be able to run windows 10
at least reasonably well, including some casual gaming like killer
instinct, the windows 10 version, and emulated systems like the
gamecube, wii and n64, and that it have a micro sd card slot, wi fi
and bluetooth. Three or four USB ports would be nice, but not
essential at all, I can just get a USB hub if I have to for extra
ports. A package deal where one comes with the device, a hub and maybe
a bluetooth keyboard would be nice, but I don't want to complicate
things, so not at all necessary, just convenient. I have a keyboard
already. It's a logitech, and it uses one of those wireless receivers.
I'll shut up now lol.

Hi Group,


I started a new thread on this because I accidentally deleted the
original 'accessible word processor' thread. In any case, I don't know
if this is still valid or not and it also depends on just what you want
to use your slimmed down and very accessible Word Processor software
for. IN the old days, you used to get a small program with a spell
checker called HJ Pad when you installed a copy of JAWS (yes I know it's
one of our competitors.) This little package was totally accessible,
had a spell checker and would save in text or RTF as I recall. It used
to be available--even if you only had a demo of JAWS. I don't know
whether this is true any more, but 5 years ago, it was so. I wonder if
anyone has tried installing the newest demos and seeing if they still
include HJ Pad and seeing if it still works after 40 minutes.

Re: Braille n' Speak Synthesizer

It will be in one of two places.
%appdata%\nvda\synthDrivers
This is used for the older synth drivers that aren't in addon form.
Or
%appdata%\nvda\addons\addon name\synthDrivers
which is used for the addon. In there you should bind bns.py or something, so open that in notepad.
Somewhere in it should be the com port, maybe at the top. Change the number and save, then restart NVDA.

I did not like that synth in the Braille and Speak.  I used it but did not like it’s voice.

Uh, The Braille 'n Speak is a hardware device. Definitely! definitely definitely not Sapi.

What is the system it uses? If its sapi it should just work but if its an
oddball one then it will need somebody to write a driver for nvda for it,
much like the pico one for the android voice.

Re: Accessible Word Processor

I have the demo of JAWS 18 and Run HJ Pad is in Utilities - JAWS 18.

Hi Gene,


I have a JAWS 16 home edition version.  It is not in that list of tools.  I don't know if the full version demo would have it.

It likely still is available.  You can run it whether you are running JAWS or not.  It is in the JAWS menu which you open in the all programs menu.  There is an item that says run HJ Pad.  I don't know how the abilities of H J Pad compare with JARTE.  But H J Pad is based on the old menu version of Wordpad.  At least it was.  It has a spell checker, which Word Pad doesn't.

Subject: [nvda] Accessible Word Processor

Hi Group,


I started a new thread on this because I accidentally deleted the
original 'accessible word processor' thread.  In any case, I don't know
if this is still valid or not and it also depends on just what you want
to use your slimmed down and very accessible Word Processor software
for.  IN the old days, you used to get a small program with a spell
checker called HJ Pad when you installed a copy of JAWS (yes I know it's
one of our competitors.)  This little package was totally accessible,
had a spell checker and would save in text or RTF as I recall.  It used
to be available--even if you only had a demo of JAWS. I don't know
whether this is true any more, but 5 years ago, it was so.  I wonder if
anyone has tried installing the newest demos and seeing if they still
include HJ Pad and seeing if it still works after 40 minutes.
