So... he wants more signatures, but the only way he feels he can get 
them is to insult everybody? I won't sign now simply because of the

A quick note to all of you who have, and those who as of yet have not 
signed

the WFA user protest site.

Before I start my message the link right here and now is
www.talknav.com/protest

Firstly, a note to all of you who have signed, thank you, but I have 
to at

this stage say that it is way too few who have made this effort. We are
nearing 700, yet for Vodafone to take this seriously we need thousands.

To date we've not even got close to even the number of users of the
application signing, let alone additional support.

Can I especially ask those of you who either work with or for the
organizations that supposedly represent us as blind folk, yes you 
lot, those
of you at the RNIB, CNIB, AFB, NFB, etc, etc, you lot really have 
made me

rather upset and irritated.

To date I've posted two messages via each of your web-sites informing 
you

all of our protest, has any one of you got back to me to ask for more
detail, have you mass mailed your members, have you lobbied in our 
favour,
have you, no sir. Is this an outrage, is this a complete lack of 
competence

when it comes to supporting those who you claim to represent? This
individual thinks so. So if you represent, or have a contact at your 
local
blind organization please forward this message, we, or certainly I, 
am very,

very disappointed in you all.

As for those private individuals who have not yet signed, even if you 
do not
own Access or a Symbian phone, your name should be on this list, the 
list

says something about who we are and what we stand for as blind folks, it
says that we will not lay down and be ignored whilst our tools to 
freedom
and mobility are stolen from us. It says we have a voice and we are 
prepared

to use it when necessary.

This protest is about more than just Wayfinder Access, it is a 
symbol, now

please, I urge you all, we need this link spreading, we need it sharing,
Face Book pages, Twitter, those of you who produce pod casts, mailing 
lists

etc, etc, if you believe in your freedom to mobility and your rights to
accessible products then make your mark.

More than this, those you know need to say that they too are in 
support of
our cause, so get your address book and forward this link, 
personalize it

with a few lines of message, get the word out there.

The protest site has a league table on it at the bottom of the public
signatures page, it's dynamic and countries move about on the list. 
To date

we've only had a tiny portion of blind people around the world sign up.
Spread the word folks.

www.talknav.com/protest

This issue rests squarely in your hands, make a difference today...

Regards.

Neil Barnfather.

Given what's out there right now, it can't be done. Platforms are very, 
very different, and a lot of what products like Orca or NVDA need to 
operate aren't present on handsets. Android is based on Linux, by the 
way. A screen reader is in the works, and while it's not very useful

The Talk2 List Back Again

2009-11-28 Thread Stephen Clower

Greetings everyone,

It has been over a month since I last made any kind of blog entry, or 
any type of public appearance. Even longer since I wrote about something 
other than Blart Radio. Regular readers will know that I'm a man of few 
words and don't write unless there is a good reason for it. Follow my 
Twitter updates if you really want to keep up with the more mundane 
facets of my life. To summarize for those of you who don't want to do 
so, I packed up my belongings and moved to the Midwest at the end of 
October. The majority of November has been filled with getting my 
personal and financial affairs in order, setting up the new apartment, 
and attending some training that I'm hoping will turn into lucrative work.


My busy schedule has consequently kept me mostly offline with a few 
small exceptions. Frankly, I prefer it, and that's very likely to 
continue. There really is a life to live in the real world, after all. 
One aspect of my internet existence which wil be coming back, however, 
is Blart Radio. Barring any technical difficulties, I will be back on 
the air tonight at 8:00 EST on TBRN. Tonight's show will be a test to 
see 1) how well the broadcast setup works in the new place and 2) learn 
whether or not I can sustain a reasonably hi-phi sound over my mobile 
phone's 3G connection. Verizon DSL, or big boy internet, won't be 
installed until the end of next week at the earliest, so we will make do 
with what's available until then. If you want all of the details on what 
we've been up to and to hear the collection of music and banter that 
only Blart Radio can bring, tune in tonight at 8:00. if you can't make 
it, we should have an archive ready by, you guessed it, the end of next 
week. Hope to see you all there.

The Talk2 List Reminder and Sneak Peak at Tonight's Blart Radio

2008-08-23 Thread Stephen Clower
Get ready, folks. After a well-deserved summer break, the entire TBRN 
Saturday lineup returns this afternoon. I have no idea what will happen 
on WDGL FM from 2-5, or for that matter on the Larfy Bin from 5-8. From 
8-10, however, I can leak a couple of hints regarding this week's 
episode of Blart Radio. First is that the homestead has wood floors 
everywhere, and the place sounds vastly different than it did a week 
ago. We'll show you the pros and cons of having wood floors instead of 
15-year-old carpet. If that doesn't sound terribly exciting, then also 
be sure to stick around for some hilarious bloopers from a very popular 
1950's radio show. Believe me--you won't want to miss this part.


Since a member of the Blart Radio family is in the hospital, the 
sporting event we promised last week is being postponed until next 
Saturday's broadcast. But hey, there are still 8 hours left to produce 
something else. Finally, Things and Stuff returns to its usual 10-12 
time slot, so stay around for what could turn into an interesting 
edition of the program.



Hope to see you all there.

Hi,

My name is Andy or Andrew Park, what ever my name is called. I lived 
in Flushing, NY, and my interest is everything: clocks, bells, pipe 
organ music, Classical to the 60s, mechanical music such as band 
organs, barrel organs, and much more. I played the pipe organ, not an 
electric one, the clarinet, violin, (Italian for fiddle), piano (such 
as the upright and grand), handbells, and accordion. I'm also 
interested on technology (computers, and more.) I am currently in 
Perkins School for the Blind, which is in Watertown, MA, and I'm 18 
years old. I am currently in my house right now, which has, guess 
what, my mantle clock on my right that chimes every 15 minutes. How 
about you. Tell me a bit about yourself, and do you have a mantle 
clock that chimes every 15 minutes too? It's nice to meat you.

As the summer heat rears its ugliness here in the southern United

just encounter a prerecorded bus driver with some interesting stories to 
tell, jazzy delights, the beloved child alcoholic, and more. If you want 
to get out tonight without having to actually go anywhere, then you, my 
friend, have problems-- which is why, of course, we hope you'll spend 
your Saturday evening with us from 8:00 to 10:00 EDT on TBRN. Check it

The Talk2 List Blart Radio Tonight

2007-11-10 Thread Stephen Clower
Blart Radio returns tonight with lots of new content. Yes. Show prep. 
Can you believe it?


First, we have two weeks worth of live jazz on which to catch up, 
including some very nice modern and Latin selections from the UNT rep 
ensemble and Latin jazz performers. Next are some clips of last week's 
trip to New Bronfels for Wurstfest including some interesting music John 
purchased, followed by a detailed explanation of why I never want to 
live in Austin. We also pay tribute to hard rock/metal of the female 
lead singer variety, so send in any requests or recommendations now if 
there's a group we don't yet have. All this plus your requests, phone 
calls, and instant messages will be heard tonight on Blart Radio on The 
Beyond Radio network. It all starts at 8:00 Eastern Standard Time, so 
tune in. Cancel your dates or other truly worthwhile lively activities, 
sit down to your computer with a nice hot cup of Dr Pepper, and enjoy.

Because John and I have a gig in Cedar Hill tonight, this week's Blart 
Radio is being postponed until tomorrow afternoon. Expect more live jazz 
from the pit, recordings of two interesting mental patients I 
encountered, updates of what Karen finds in her folks basement when she 
helps clean it, and of course, recordings of the gig itself. TBRN 
content should be normal otherwise tonight with Arfy filling in for my 
absence at 8:00 EDT. Unless something really unfortunate occurs, tune in

Hi!  It's Jay in Orlando.  Thanks so much to all of you who have stayed with
me through these unpredictable times lately.



For those of you who listened to any of the previous 7200 Seconds, thank you
so much!  If you missed them, a show archive is available.  Go to HYPERLINK
http://www.fragkast.com/http://www.fragkast.com and click on 7200seconds
inside the Archive Player.  If you would like to view the most recent Show
Notes, due to recent changes at the TechnoFrag website, that capability has
been disabled for a while as an improved method is under development.
However, an expanded Show Archive with Show Notes is available at HYPERLINK

for his hard work in getting the server and disk space to allow that
capability, and for those with visual impairments, it IS 100 percent
accessible. Look for more shows there in the future.).



Show #89 is getting ready, and it hopes to be a special one.  7200 Seconds
is preparing to celebrate 2 years of streaming, but will anything prevent
this from happening this week?  Are too many people kicking back in hopes of
me complaining about a lack of participation?  As has been tradition to this
point, I will give and take on various topics, provide some brief
technical-consumer insight and I will try to play a little bit of music.
Most importantly, I want to hear from listeners in one way or another,
especially since it is a live stream to participate in!



The ways that you get in contact with me are by MSN/Windows
Messenger/Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, and Skype for
direct voice chat.  Go to HYPERLINK
http://www.hkcradio.com/http://www.hkcradio.com or HYPERLINK

info before the show streams.  If you want to contact 7200 Seconds via
Skype, type in “jay7200seconds” the Skype edit box and hit the Enter key on
the keyboard to voice chat.



7200 Seconds usually streams every Wednesday night normally at 9 PM
Eastern, 6 PM Pacific and Thursday morning in the UK and all points eastward
on HKC Radio and TechnoFrag Radio.  Contact me if you want specific info on
how to listen to any of these live streams.  And tell those you know about
it.



If you do not want to receive any more of these messages, I will be glad to
honor the request.  Send an e-mail to HYPERLINK

in the Subject line and you’ll be taken care of.

Just when you thought one early Blart Radio was bad enough, you get to 
enjoy a second. This time, the family and I head out of town for a week

very special, summer edition of Blart Radio. Listen to some selections 
from yesterday's July 4 performance, dive into some old tapes we found, 
and learn all about where Reverend Bigdawg came from. This plus some

Re: The Talk2 List The tbrn station and windows media player

2007-04-19 Thread Stephen Clower
That is the web site address, not the listening address. For WMP, use 
the following:

http://tbrn.net:8000/ or broadband
http://tbrn.net:8002/ for dialup or
http://onj4.andrelouis.com/ if you are behind a firewall and want to 
listen to the broadband stream.


This mp3 version of the stream is known to have some stability problems, 
so it's highly recommended that you use a media player that supports the 
ogg vorbis format. I understand that WMP can be modified to support ogg 
via some DirectShow plugins, but I don't know if that applies to 
streaming audio or just local files on one's hard drive. At any rate, 
the link to the ogg stream is

http://tbrn.net:/tbrn.ogg
This information can also be found on the TBRN home page.

Re: Call To Action for Royalty Rate Injustice

A recent decision of the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) to impose significantly
higher royalty rates on Internet radio threatens your survival. To elevate this
threat, Monday, a motion for rehearing was denied.

To fight this potentially deadly imposition of fees, a coalition has been formed
that includes listeners, artists, and webcasters. We would be honored to have
you join us.

You understand the severity of these new royalty rates.

Visit  savenetradio.org . Learn more about how these rates will affect you, your
listeners and artists. Join the coalition by signing our petition, it will be
used to convince Congress to give this vital issue its attention.

Independent webcasters cannot survive a royalty rate hike of 300%. Many
webcasters won't survive paying the back-dated fees through 2006, if this CRB
ruling stands.

There are less than thirty days to respond, to be heard.

Go to  savenetradio.org . You need to take action today!

Underneath you will find all of the Eloquence voices you have installed.

Re: Copyright Royalty Board Rate Structure

If you are reading this you are involved with internet radio: Maybe as a hobby.
Maybe on a professional level with the hopes of making profit at some point in
the future.

If you are reading this you are personally affected by the recent Copyright
Royalty Board's ruling
that will elevate royalty rates 140% over the next four years.

If you have made it to this sentence your interest is strong enough to initiate
action that will let those
in a position of power know you are concerned with the increased costs for
products (music),
which holds no definitive value until radio gives it exposure and makes it
popular.

Spacial Audio's position on this recent CRB ruling is simple: Artists should be
paid for their work
to a degree that directly relates to the worth of their work.

Spacial Audio wants you to know that we are actively working behind the scenes,
and directly
with groups like DiMA, on efforts to overturn the Copyright Royalty Board's
ruling. But, the
most important element of this process is more in your hands than ours. You need
to:

1) Take action, by contacting your Washington Representatives directly.  You
will find their names here.

2)  Sign a petition reflecting your disagreement  with the Copyright Royalty
Board's decision.

3) Place links to both of the above on your radio station web site, so your
listeners may voice their
opinion. Nothing works in Washington D.C. like the aggravated and disapproving
voice of the people.

4) Don't do nothing, and don't give up. This is a legal process that may
take years to come
to a conclusion. The fight is not over unless you let it be over.

The CRB will soon hold another hearing to listen, once again, to the outcry from
the public and small webcasters
who are so adversely affected by its early March 2007 ruling. This action would
not be happening unless there
were doubts as to the capricious nature of the royalty rates it set.

Spacial Audio urges you to become involved, to help save an industry that is
perfectly willing to pay
for music but is not willing to let itself be walked over by the groups that
control music.

These extremely high rates will be overturned; as surely as they were held off
in the last occurrence that set rates
beyond the reach of webcasters (in 2001). You have my word that Spacial Audio is
behind your efforts to right
this wrong, and to grow the online radio industry. But, we have work to do - so
don't sit idle hoping everything
will work itself out. Take action, today! We are.

 those judges you’re always yelling at will have to admit you look

 a side note
 here, no one would purposely shave his hairline back. Also, I don’t

 coming on to
 him simply because you’re complimenting his appearance.)
  
 A little bird told me your country is heading towards a civil war.
 That’s cool. We had one of those too. It’s pretty crazy. If you’re

 pretty confusing, but cool.
  
 (First, a President should never say that “a little birdie” told him
 about something crucial to world security. Second, a civil war is much
 more organized
 than your understanding. If what you’re describing were true, everyone
 would be fighting.)
  
 There are several things you can do if you want to stop people from
 punching, kicking, slapping, pinching, blowing up, bow and arrowing
 (this is no longer
 a common practice) and shooting each other (just say “if you want to
 stop the violence”). First, have you checked your laws? Murder and
 attacking people
 without a license may be illegal in which case a lot of people could
 be in a lot of trouble.
  
 (Murder is illegal in every country and I am certain that the Prime
 Minister knows that breaking the law leads to punishment. You’re
 telling him something
 that even first graders understand.)
  
 Also, have you tried shocking and awing them? Here’s what you do.
 First you surprise them—the shock—then you disappoint them—the aw. We
 shocked and awed
 this one country, it was awesome. First we bombed the crap out of some
 city and people were all like “Whoa man!” (the shock) and then they
 were like “Aw
 man, they messed up all of our buildings!”(the aw). We never had
 problems with that country since.
  
 (First, it’s “awe” not “aw.” Besides, saying the Iraqi people were
 disappointed with the destruction of their cities would be seen as an
 insensitive understatement.
 Second, the country we launched a shock and awe campaign against was
 Iraq! Reminding the Prime Minister of this will likely infuriate him,
 since this is
 the reason his country is in turmoil in the first place.)
  
 Hey, remember when we found you in that spider hole? (He’s not
 Saddam!) Were the spiders friendly to you or were they jerks? I woke
 up once and there was
 a spider in my bed and he was a super big jerk. No matter how many
 times I yelled at him to get out of my bed he wouldn’t. When I finally
 decided to use
 deadly force he made a sneaky getaway. Apparently this spider had tied
 a thin piece of string to my ceiling fan and when I looked up he had
 already climbed
 up and was sitting on one of the blades.
  
 (This paragraph must be deleted from this letter. However, this is a
 good time to point out some misconceptions you have about spiders.
 First, they don’t
 have the capacity to be “jerks.” They’re just spiders. Second, spiders
 don’t tie strings around ceiling fans; you witnessed it making a web.
 I’m going
 to send the head of the Department of Wildlife to your office tomorrow
 to explain further.)
  
 Anyway, I want to know if you want to get coffee or something to talk
 about how bad your country is. If it would make you feel more
 comfortable, we could
 double up. I could bring the king of Canada and you could bring one of
 the presidents of one of the bad guy countries. (I’m not gay by the way.)
  
 (He’s not going to think you’re gay! However, this is not a date and
 you don’t need to “double up.” Also, Canada does not have a king and

Leykis Gets Murder Confession
November 04, 2006
by Marc Rudov

Sited from: 
http://mensnewsdaily.com/2006/11/04/leykis-gets-murder-confession/


Unless you haven’t heard by now, a girl named 
Sue called into The Tom Leykis Show last night 
from Ahwatukee, Arizona, to confess and BRAG about murdering

the father of her child.

As I wrote in my article,
“Why Women Hate Tom Leykis,”
 Sue began her bizarre tale by reminding all 
men that Hell hath no fury like a woman 
scorned. It turns out that, after a one-night stand, she got preggers
and had a bastard child at the age of 19. Why 
not ­ doesn’t Hollywood teach that this is the cool thing to do?


Sue, a nurse, and the baby’s father both worked 
at the same hospital. The father refused to pay

child support
, so she had family court garnish his hospital 
wages. He didn’t like that, so he quit his job. 
Sue approached him privately for “under the table” money.
He refused to pay her that, too. What else could 
she do but take his 9mm pistol and shoot him in 
the heart (she bragged about knowing exactly where in

the heart to shoot because of her nursing background).

When the police arrived, Sue, while blubbering 
for effect, gave them the standard VAWA-speak: 
“He was beating and threatening me. He was drunk. He shot
himself.” Of course, the police AUTOMATICALLY 
believed her. Why? She’s a woman. (Read

“Will She Call 911 on You?”
) That’s right: No hearing; no trial. VAWA 
rules! Had the situation been reversed, and the 
police arrived to see a living man and dead woman, do you think
the investigating officer would have believed a 
male’s version of this story? Don’t bust a gut laughing.


Sue, the hubristic, moronic man-hater, decided 
to confess, on international radio, to killing a 
man. She didn’t realize that, when calling an 800 number,
her caller ID is revealed ­ even if unlisted. 
When Leykis, incredulous as we all were, 
reminded her about the consequences of her public confession, Sue
waxed indifference, feeling untouchable, saying 
that the body had been cremated and that she was using her friend’s phone.


Tom Leykis, who was doing his show as a live 
listener event in “Porkland,” Oregon (his 
nickname for the city of fat women), immediately had his sidekicks
contact the Phoenix media and the Ahwatukee 
police. Then, the throng of Leykis men began 
chanting, “Fry that b-tch. Fry that b-tch.” This is an adaptation
of Tom’s oft-repeated chant, “Dump that b-tch,” 
which he uses when admonishing men for hanging 
onto incompatible, abusive women.


Shortly after the confession, one female caller 
expressed happiness that a man died over child 
support. Wow! Another was scared for her 14-year-old athlete
son, who could become prey for cheerleaders. 
Said she: “Women are mean. I know; I am one! 
Tell all your guys to be careful.” Then, Tom announced on the
air that he would pay $5K in cash to anyone who 
helps lead to Sue’s capture and conviction. It 
was the most-amazing segment of radio I had ever heard.


I urge you to be careful with women. Because 
they have most of the civil rights, thanks to 
VAWA, they can be dangerous. While “pumping and dumping” them
may seem appealing and expeditious, it can 
backfire. Police will always presume men guilty 
and women innocent. Sue’s story, once again, proves it. It also

proves, as I wrote in
“Playing Abortion Chess,”
 that women care more about child support than 
abortion ­ even to the point of killing for it.


==

PS: In the first hour of his broadcast on 
Monday, November 6, 2006, Tom Leykis replayed 
most of Sue’s call and discussed it afterwards 
with callers.

 October 11, 2006, 2:57 PM

 Qualcomm on Wednesday joined up with the Mozilla Foundation to 
 announce it is transitioning

 Eudora

 into an open source e-mail client that will be based upon

 Thunderbird

 . In turn, all future versions of Eudora will be free and Qualcomm 
 will discontinue

 the current paid client.

 Although it may seem like Eudora is simply abandoning its e-mail 
 software, which

 has a small but strong following of loyal users, the company claims 
 the Thunderbird-based

 client will retain Eudora's uniquely rich feature set and 
 productivity enhancements.

 The first release of the open source client is expected in early 2007, 
 at which

 point Eudora will cease selling the product commercially. In the 
 meantime, Eudora

 will be priced at $19.95 USD and come with three incidents of support 
 in a six month

 period. Until today, Qualcomm sold Eudora versions for a suggested 
 retail price of

 as high as $49.95 USD.

 Current Eudora users can choose to keep running the ad-supported 
 version indefinitely

 after upgrading to version 7.1 for Windows and 6.2.4 for Mac OS X, 
 released last

 week but announced only today. Qualcomm says it will stop displaying 
 advertisements

 in the client sometime early next year.

 Qualcomm has decided not to remain in the email market because it is 
 not in alignment

 with the core business or strategic goals, the company said. By 
 moving Eudora to

 an open source product, Qualcomm can exit the Eudora business while 
 still supporting

 Eudora users and advancing the Eudora e-mail client at a faster pace 
 than before,

 through the power of the open source development community.

 We're pleased to welcome Eudora and its millions of users to the 
 world of open source,

 said Frank Hecker, executive director of the Mozilla Foundation. This 
 effort should

 further enrich the Thunderbird technology platform and provide users 
 of both products

 with an even richer email experience.

 In recent months, reviewers continued to give Eudora the performance 
 edge for use

 with enterprise e-mail, compared against Thunderbird (though not 
 against Microsoft

 Outlook). However, in practice, some have noted Eudora has suffered 
 limited performance

 problems with recent versions,

 prompting in at least one case

 suggestions that users (in this case, students) try Thunderbird instead.

The Talk2 List Rockbox features this week on Blart Radio

2006-08-26 Thread Stephen Clower

Greetings all,

I normally don't announce what I have planned ahead of time, but 
tonight on Blart Radio, I am making an exception. Due to requests 
from multiple people, I will be doing a live, comprehensive 
demonstration of Rockbox. To bring you up to speed, Rockbox is an 
alternative firmware available for a number of popular portable mp3 
players like the Archos juke boxes, Iriver players, I-Audio X5 
series, and very recently the Ipod. This firmware, aside from 
allowing for more configurability and compressed audio support, 
speaks, thereby making the unit totally accessible to someone without 
sight. If you're interested and want to see how this whole thing 
works, tune in tonight to Blart Radio at 8:00 PM EDT and find out, 
first hand, just how cool this really is. http://www.tbrn.net:8000 
for broadband, 8002 for dialup, and http://tbrn.net:/tbrn.m3u for 
the no-delay Icecast stream. Tune in and check it out!

Hi,

Someone from microsoft has figured out why model talker will not 
work with jaws and window eyes and other sapi5 applications! The 
reason is a dll is not registered in the c:\windows\system32\ folder 
or directory. Once you register this dll you may use model talker 
with jaws, window eyes, and any other sapi5 application available 
that sees it. Any voices you create with the InvTool program will 
instantly show up in the list of available voices once you are done 
creating the voice. There are jaws scripts for the Invtool program 
to help people use it a little better. I have them if anyone wants 
them. If someone would be willing to make window-eyes set files 
that'd be great!
Here are the directions for registering the dll. Please review each 
direction and or command carefully with your screen reader's review commands.


1. go to start menu and then to run.
2. in the run dialog box type:
cmd
and press enter. alternatively, go to your windows 95/98/2000/me/xp 
command prompt.

3. at the command prompt type:
cd\windows\system32\
4. after each command at the command prompt you must press enter for 
the command to be executed.

5. you should now hear or see c:\windows\system32\
6. now type:
regsvr32 mtttseng.dll
press enter and a dialog will come up saying that the dll is registered.
press enter on ok and you're back at the command prompt.
now type exit and you're back in regular windows.
Now go ahead and see if model talker works with your screen reader! 
Again, any voices you create will instantly show up in the list of 
model talker voices. have fun and hopefully we'll have some new 
screen reader voices to pass around on or off list to each other soon!

I'm having problems unfortunately.  I can't get past the first 
one do you understand what I'm saying?  It's recording 
perfectly (as I hear it when I go into the file within the 
directory itself), but every time I try and record that sentence 
it says too low, too quiet and not clear. but it's stuck on 
the first one so am not sure what it's comparing it too or 
what's wrong with the recording.  When I just try and hit the 
save button it just repeats that same audio prompt. *grrr Anyone 
know what could be going on?

Cheers!

The trick is that it's more tedious than anything else. Getting 
through roughly half of the phoneme recording takes about two 
hours, so you might want to grab some coffee to stay awake 
while recording yourself. Skype blows goat testacles, everybody.

Been there, done it. If someone could please tell me how the

the sapi5 bit to work, that'd be great. I've already created three
instances of myself. Level calibrations are esential. Get rid of fan
noise and/or room ambients -- it will haunt you later.
