Re: Reading .brf books

Ian Blackburn
 

I have read these files in variety of programs including notepad
WordPad in Microsoft Word
The layout is not very good in these programs but the files are red on the braille Display so it doesn't matter much
If you have a Mac you can read them in text edit

They are not just text files if they are in grade 2 or some other contractional format.  They do not present well in notepad if this is the case.

Hello all,

I have a number of .brf files, not from Bookshare, which I normally read
on a usb pendrive with my Touchme5 braille display.

I'f like to read them on the pc as well, but I have no idea whether
there are any programmes that would open those files, without converting
the mto txt with Wintrans, for example.

Does such software exist?
Thanks, ciao,

Weather Plus 4.2 updated

Adriano Barbieri
 

Hi there,

Version 4.2 - 15.11.2016
* Fixed update notice of Weather Plus during the Windows start-up;
This happens when the button was pressed "Use currently saved settings on
the logon and other secure screens (requires administrator privileges)" from
the generalsettings of nvda, which copies the configuration, and all of the
add-on folder systemConfig, but these are not synchronized with subsequent
updates of the add-ons.
If you have ever used at least once this option, you will have to do it
again one last time just after to have up-to-date Weather Plus.

Download:
http://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/weatherPlus.it.html
or:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5251169/Weather%20Plus4.2.nvda-addon

Cheers
Adriano

opening an email message in a new tab

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, everyone,

I'm trying out seamonkeyand so-far it's working pretty good. Is there a way to open a message in a new tab like you can in thunderbird? I'm noticing that when you hit enter on a message, you get the subject line repeated. I was just wondering if there's a way to open a message in a new tab.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Rosemarie


Re: Reading .brf books

Mallard
 

I tried, but I get a lot of strange symbols along with the actual text. Since they're files for learning Biblical Hebrew, it looks a bit complicated.

I saw there's a programme, which is paid, but I don't think it's worth my while to buy something for this.

I'll continue reading them in my braille display and forget about the pc...

Thanks. It would probably work with straightforward text; I'll try that again.

Ciao,

Ollie

I'll also add that it's necessary to authorize yourself twice, if you're using google's two-step verification. The first is when you first get the domain/ports configured and set up the account and the second is the first time you send an outgoing mail. So basically it makes you verify yourself for both incoming and outgoing, whereas thunderbird does this for you in one go when you first set it up.
Take care.

Seamonkey does work pretty well with NVDA and for those who like to have their browser/email stuffed into the same package, it's pretty nice. For the most part, all of the plugins that you are used to using on firefox will work too, minus just a few that are updated in such a way as to make them only work inside the firefox specific way of doing things. Either way, it's definitely worth grabbing it and seeing what ya think.
Take care.

Hi.
And another alternative is create an application password and autorice with it the Seamonkey. And, talking about mail clients, Outlook for Windows also is a good alternative, but you must have Office to use Outlook.
