I still don't understand how you can work out which domain to use just
from knowing the phone number, even if a domain exists for the service provider.

I don't believe that "all cell companies have domains for eMailing

For example, can you find a domain for Vodafone UK?

Also, how do you know which provider's domain you need to send the
message to when all you know is the phone number?

Hi,

If you have an Android device, try Pulse SMS
http://www.pulsesms.com/
Its web site works well though, in my experience, the app doesn't.
I know of no way to do this from the iPhone or another phone type,

unfortunately. Obviously, if you want to do this from a number other
than
that of your phone, that is, if you don't care about your SMS
appearing from, and replies to those messages going to, a number
different from your own phone number, you can use any of the VOIP
services. See, just for accessible examples

Hm, that did not work.

The mailing list has completely erased the email I quoted to show you what I
see (possibly in an attempt to avoid excessive footers building up in a

However, I never see a "Reply to Sender" link in the body or footer of an

the email, but in the perfectly normal way, nothing to do with the mailing
list server.

Re: the latest virtual audio cable software to work with nvda

The Gamages
 

Hello again,
 
Just one more try with Audacity,
I have tried this on two different computers with two different soundcards and two different versions of Audacity.
 
As before, go into Preferences,
choose Devices in the list and tab once, this is the list of hosts, instead of MME or WA sappie, choose Windows direct sound,
tab twice and choose, Primary sound capture driber,
tab to OK and press enter.
 
The items may be called something slightly different with a different soundcard, but it all works, I recorded something from the internet.
 
If you want to use a microphone, and these settings then you need to set this in the soundcard and make the speakers listen to the microphone, but that’s a different ball game and I don’t think it is what is needed in this case.
Have fun.

Re: Security in NVDA

Can you give one example of some risk which exists with the Python console
which does not already exist in the command prompt, without giving details of
how to actually do some damage?

I simply don't believe that the fact you can type Python commands is any more
dangerous than what you can do already in the command prompt window.

I also believe that anyone who says "this system is insecure" without giving
any evidence to back up that claim is scare-mongering.

I have had that happen on a few boards, and mostly its the board.

A large note on this is if you have a wireless board or mouse, I have
had windows do a lot of strange things with the boards, them not working
or windows thinking keys are pressed and other crazyness.

Usually the  battery lights are on or something, sadly the effected
users never have the batteries.

And usually this issue happens at night, meaning all the stores are shut.

I have it so people have batteries in stock, else I need to order online

to replace it.

Some keyboards like my gaming board can get issues, and I just do a
reflash of the firmware and it works again.

You may have a virus but that could be more than a key, a program or
addon may need updating.

Your windows computer may need to be reformatted because windows is
breaking and a good reformat will stop it being broken, note, windows
will still break from time to time forcing you to reformat to get it
working but don't try to fix it, the real errors are hard for me to fix,.

Oh I've had it with wired keyboards, and its not obviously the keyboard, as so many have been used it cannot always be that.

I have had that happen on a few boards, and mostly its the board.

A large note on this is if you have a wireless board or mouse, I have had windows do a lot of strange things with the boards, them not working or windows thinking keys are pressed and other crazyness.

Usually the battery lights are on or something, sadly the effected users never have the batteries.

And usually this issue happens at night, meaning all the stores are shut.

I have it so people have batteries in stock, else I need to order online and get the morning delivery.

Re: Security in NVDA

What is the risk?

What can a non-admin user do with the Python console that they can't do, for
example, through the command prompt?

Hi,

In productions environments, the Python console should not be enabled.
It's highly a security risk!
Just in Alpha and Beta versions the function should be it enabled by
default only.

Often though either a restart of nvda or a complete system restart is needed as it gets confused somewhere. Probably so many routines looking at keys, one of them tends to get stuck.
