I also wish people would avoid politics because half of the audience will 
always be pissed as I am when people knock Trump.

I’ll let this pass other than to say this is getting pretty far off topic, and 
once politics comes up, it can only get worse. Plus, once we start talking 
about science and facts, supporters of one particular candidate can get pretty 
thin skinned.

The hurricanes in the south east occur every year, during the hurricane season 
June/November, so nothing new.

The fires in the west are not new either, as they happen frequently due to 
several factors.

Trump is something good that happens to this country since a long-long time ago.

To sum up, there’s nothing to worry about, at least not about these 3 things.

Possibly a little too late for the Oregon Washington and California fires, but 
here's a resource I was just alerted to that might be helpful for people 
planning in all kinds of emergencies in the future.

It is from the library of Congress website.

Hi,

 

This app might become valuable for me in the future but for now, in my small 
East Texas town, Nacogdoches Texas.  It is ten years out of date on several 
businesses.

 

So far, I can’t figure out how to look around more than half a mile.All stay 
safe,

Note, when it loads onto your iPhone, it will be called Explore, not Good Maps 
or even Good Maps Explore.

 

If you want to send feedback or ask questions, the support address is 
supp...@goodmaps.com  

Their phone is: (502) 845-3113

 

I found 2 out of date Points Of Interest within two blocks of my house in the 
first 15 minutes of using the Look Around tab.

I sent them that information.

 

You can search for an address or POI from the location screen.

You can use a “getting warmer” method, or get directions using Google Maps or 
Apple Maps launched from within the app.

 

For a first release, this looks quite impressive.

 

One more note, One of the out of date POI locations is a restaurant that has 
been out of business for at least 3 years, so I searched for the name of the 
new restaurant that went in about 6 months after the other one closed and found 
it easily.

So, it is in their data base, they just have to update the info spoken  in the 
Look Around tab.

GoodMaps is proud to announce the release of  

 GoodMaps Explore, an accessible wayfinding app designed primarily for people 
who are blind or visually impaired, which sets a new standard for indoor 
navigation across the globe. GoodMaps Explore uses audio instructions to 
communicate routing and critical spatial information as users move through a 
space, whether indoors or outdoors, drawing upon GoodMaps’ state-of-the-art 
digital maps. In doing so, GoodMaps has solved four problems that have 
frustrated the field for several decades by:

1. delivering superior positioning accuracy with minimal infrastructure,
2. dramatically speeding the process to digitally map a building, which 
provides the foundation for the app,
3. creating a way for building owners to securely control their mapping data,
4. providing the public with a complete package of maps with an app to actually 
use them.

It's in the Face ID and Passcodes item in Settings. You can toggle "Require 
attention for face ID" on or off. Note as stated before, it's turned off by 
default when you enable Voice Over. I know this has been said before as well, 
but when you go into Settings -> Face ID and Passcode, it explains that this 
setting gives you an added level of security because it checks to see if you're 
looking at the phone before unlocking it. Like I said in a previous message, 
this keeps someone from waving the phone in front of your face when you're 
napping to unlock your phone.

I also noticed that in Face ID and Passcode you can also set up an alternative 
appearance. I suppose this would be good if you're having trouble with face ID 
when you take your glasses off.

Hi to all.  In the last couple of days, I have learned some new iPhone
things.  I am now successfully using the audible app which I have no
idea why I didn't use it sooner.  It is so easy to find a book, and
download it on my iPhone then delete the book, or remove from device
as the audible app calls it.  I regret some of the things I did with
audible in the past.  I also have just learned in the past few minutes
how to receive a call from someone then add the number who called me
to my contacts.  That is a pretty easy process as well.  I need to
learn how to use email next, but I know I will be able to do it.  Have
a great day all.

Check to see if your cellular data is turned on by going to settings.  Then go 
to cellular.  Then swipe until you find cellular data and then double tap to 
turn on cellular data.  You should be able to turn off WiFi assist.

RE: A quick iPhone battery question

Turner
Sent: Thursday, July 16, 2020 9:24 AM

Subject: RE: A quick iPhone battery question

 

In 2009 I bought the first iPod Touch with VoiceOver, the 3rd generation.

At that time, the normal battery life was maybe 5 hours of use.

But, if you were listening to audio, while the device was locked, you could get 
40 hours.

I tested that very soon as I had ripped most of my CD collection into iTunes so 
I had probably 60 hours of music.

I select songs, shuffle all, and started it playing.

I plugged in headphones, so I wouldn’t hear it all the time while I was 
working, etc.

I checked the battery after 36 hours and it was at 20%.

 

That is still true.  If you are playing audio, or video for that matter, and 
lock the phone, you get far greater battery life.

 

Whether that has to do with the screen brightness or not, I don’t know, but 
probably not as having the device locked does more than just blank the screen.

 

I know with my new SE 2020, with screen brightness set to auto and leaving the 
screen curtain on, I get a full day and more depending on usage, but I use it a 
lot every day for books, email, reading news, searching the web, etc.

Yesterday, from 100% in the morning, it was at about 50% when I went to bed.

It doesn’t lose much at all over night, maybe 1 or 2%.

of creeping up.  How strange.

Subject: keeping brightness at zero to save battery

Hello iPhone listers,

In the control center, I have brightness set to zero percent except when 
sighted assistance is needed. But, I've noticed lately that I have to check 
brightness regularly because it doesn't always stay at zero. I check it when 
I think I'm suddenly using up too much battery life. Any suggestions for why 
the brightness would change without my doing anything to change it?


Peace & Blessings,

RE: Getting CIRI to understand the difference between an Eye Message and a text message meant for an Android phone

2020-07-07 Thread bentleyj1952
I don't want to tie up this list with repetitive thank you's but it was 
extremely helpful for me to be able to send text messages to family and friends 
who use Android phones.  Getting that message failure notice was getting old.

I won't post any more on this particular subject unless some one else needs 
help with the same problem.

This is a good list.

Enabling send as sms fixed the problem.

 

I wonder why Apple doesn’t have this turned on by default.

 

I’m sure glad it is now working right.

 

Many thanks for the directions.

Have you tried enabling send as sms?  Enabling send as sms will allow messages 
to be sent when imesssage is unavailable.  To enable this settings, messages.  
Next swipe until you find send as sms and then double tap  to turn on this 
setting.

Hi,

A BARD book is about 11 MB per hour, so you can multiply the number of hours by 
10 to get a rough idea of how much space a book will take.

Best,

RE: Transfer data from a previous iOS device to a new one was RE: Best way to Restore a backup to a new Iphone in 2020?

2020-07-03 Thread bentleyj1952
If you have a way of knowing, about how much space on your iPhone does 950 Bard 
books use?

I have around 60 Bard books on my phone but I do not know enough about my first 
iPhone to find out how much space the Bard books are using.

Any books you have from an iPhone with bard mobile, will not get
transferred onto a new iPhone at this time.  That is one reason why I
won't at this time get a new iPhone.  Also, I've only had my iPhone 8
for only about one year and it would make no sense to get a new iPhone
at this time.  I've got about 950 bard books on my iPhone 8, and I'm
not going to lose all those books just because a new iPhone can't yet
transfer those books to a new one.

RE: Putting files on memory card what needed and how

So.   Are you saying that a USB thumb drive adaptor or an SD card adaptor 
purchased from Apple will both have a place to plug in a lightning cable.  And, 
one can read from or write to both?

iPhones do not have the power to run any external card, which is why the 
adapter has a lightning port to plug in the charging cable. 

iPad pros have enough power to not need the AC adapter plugged in, though it's 
not a bad idea if it is handy.

Yes, you can write to, and read from the memory card.

I recommend buying the adapter from Apple that matches the type of memory card 
you have. 

The below link is to the Apple store for one for SD cards, but at the bottom of 
the page there are links to a USB adapter as well as others.

Since iOS 13, you can use these adapters for any files through the files app to 
copy files to or from the card.

The descriptions only mention cameras, but it works with any files.

You have to plug your lightning power cord into the adapter, and the card, then 
the adapter has a short cable that plugs into your phone lightning jack.

That way your phone is powered, otherwise the phone cannot copy files to and 
from a card.

They are all around $39.

I really like my iPhone 8.  Although I use my iPhone mainly as a media
player.  However, it is so cool to be able to anser phone calls on the
same device that I can listen to my audio books or audio dramas.  What
I usually do, is stop my Voice Over speech when I'm listening to
something so that if I do receive a phone call, I can answer it
quickly with the 2 finger double tap.  I bought my iPhone because so
many blind people have them and they are all basically the same
device.  This list has been and still is very helpful to me as I'm
still learning my iPhone 8.  I still haven't updated to IOS 13.51, BUT
I'll probably update to 14 when it comes out.

No one is suppressing anyone's opinion or right to make their own choices.

There isn't even a debate.  Only a few people putting their 2 cents worth in to

I don't agree myself, but I'm not sure why we're debating Android versus IOS in 
this thread. Each has their pros and cons and someone may prefer one over the 
other. I for myself am glad we have choices, and I'm going to let people make

Hi,

Only just my little two cents worth but, I found Android confusing and

at least for me.

I find IOS menus to make common sense for the most part.  IOS is actually a bit

Thanks for that tip, James. I'll have to try it the next time I need things to

I've never had an Android, but I'm still riding around the learning curve for 
the iPhone. I learn stuff as I need to go, I guess. This list is great for

RE: LOL, what good is the mute switch if Voice Over shouts out the name of the incoming call

2020-06-16 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi,

I believe that your right.  But, I think I have come up with a more simple 
method of telling my SE2 to not make any noise for in-coming calls but still 
vibrate for the calls.

I hold down the volume down button for one second and toggle on the mute switch.

I can still receive calls and regaining volume for VO when I need only takes 
just holding down the volume up button for about one second.

I have had this SE2 for around 3 weeks.  Its my first iPhone and there is still 
much to learn for me.

I like this phone better than any Android phone that I have ever owned.

Cheers,

James B

Hi.
I'm using an iPhone 8 with 13.5.1, and under the Phone option in
Settings there's an Announce Calls setting. You could double-tap on
the Never setting, then go back in and change it to Always when you
want calls to be announced again. I'm assuming you'll still receive
calls when the Mute switch is on, that they won't be announced, and
will go to VoiceMail if not answered.

Or you could turn on Do Not Disturb and choose the option to only have
those listed in your phone's Favorites or who are in your Contacts and
have Emergency Bypass turned on under their names come through.

HTH,
Dani

LOL, what good is the mute switch if Voice Over shouts out the name of the incoming call

2020-06-15 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi all,

 

OK, I'm still very new to this new iPhone SE2.  There must be a setting
somewhere to stop the announcement of incomeing calls by VO when the mute
switch is on.

 

Cheers,

Hi all,

 

In IOS 13.5.1, in settings, under battery, there is a switch that turns
battery percentage on and off.  What does this do?

 

Is it turned on or off by default?

Hi,
It could be that the Alison boys pronounces her words differently. I am using 
it right now and it sure does this because instead of pronouncing as June  18th 
 it says June teenth. It also pronounce the word honor as honore. The word her 
is pronounced as er.
in this case I think the voice you select matters in terms of pronunciation 
purposes.
I prefer to use the Alex voice because it is very clear.

RE: Pronunciation of a word

Hi Karen,

Maybe check to see if spelling the word "peace" like this, "pese" helps any.

Subject: Pronunciation of a word

Hi, all,
I'm sorry if this has been covered, but this is driving me batty. 
When I hear the word "peace" on my iPhone, it is always pronounced 
"peas." Now, it doesn't matter if I try to change the pronunciation 
in the correct place in Settings. No matter what I do, and I have 
tried many, many things, it always gives me the same outcome. I'm 
using the Alison voice if that matters. Just drives me nuts. When I 
hear "Lord, please give me peace," I don't want him to give me a 
scoop of veggies, so does anyone have any ideas here?

TIA,
Karen

Youtube also had an update, so it is very difficult to say what fixed it. 

if the iOS security update fixed it, then something about YouTube was causing 
iOS to think it was a security threat, which it may have been, grin.

RE: Getting the mute switch to work right on an SE 2020

2020-05-28 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi Richard and thanks for your post.

 

I just got off the phone with Apple tech support and I found out why the mute 
button wasn’t working like I expected.

 

In my defense, I have only had an iPhone for one week now so I am still 
learning.

 

What I just learned is that the phone has to be lock for the mute ringer switch 
to function.  Otherwise, Ciri will go ahead and do her thing.

 

I just tested it, and as long as the screen is locked, the mute switch works as 
expected.

 

H, wondering what other thing I will learn next???

As far as the mute switch, check the sound settings.  The first two items have 
to do when the phone vibrates. 

 

In the phone settings, there is an announce calls setting.

IN the Siri settings, you can select control with ring switch.

 

I hope that pretty much covers your questions.

RE: The proximity sensor on the new SE

2020-05-25 Thread bentleyj1952
No, I already had that set  to speaker instead of auto.  But, what a good try.

The main reason that I wanted to get away from the sensor was because it wasn't 
working right.  A reboot of the phone fixed that.  Or, at least, some thing 
fixed it.  I would still like to be able to lock the phone in to speaker mode 
but since the sensor is now stable, I could live with it if I needed to.  For 
now, I am guessing that this might be a bug in IOS 13.

Richard, I appreciate all of your time in digging around for different 
suggestions.

Cheers,

James, perhaps you are looking for Call Audio routing?
Settings, Accessibility, Touch, Call Audio Routing.Call audio routing 
determines where audio will be heard during a phone call or FaceTime audio.
It defaults to automatic.
Maybe setting it to speaker will do what you want if that is to always have it 
on speaker.

Hi, 

Check under Settings, accessibility, VoiceOver, Audio:

 

The setting defaults to on and the phrase after it explains its function.

Auto-select Speaker in Call on

 

During audio calls, automatically switch to the speaker when not holding your 
iPhone to your ear.

So, toggle it off and that should give you what you want.

RE: Note taking on an iPhone, for James, et al

2020-05-25 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi all,

 

So many members have offered suggestions that it is difficult to thank everyone 
individually.

 

I am strongly considering just paying the one time cost for Voice Dream Reader, 
Voice Dream Writer, and Voice Dream Scanner.  I am guessing that they all play 
well together.

 

With Voice Dream Writer, is it possible to browse through the names of your 
files to open them?

 

Can I open a file and edit it, over and over again and save my changes?

 

Thanks,

 

James B

James and others,

I started a completely new thread to make sure this message didn’t end up in 
the old thread.

 

To answer James question, there are a lot of note taking apps.

The one that is built-in is Notes.

It is a good, basic, note taking app but has a pretty busy screen now with all 
the new features.

 

My personal favorite is Voice Dream Writer, normally $9.99 but I believe it is 
on sale through May.

It is made by the same person who makes my favorite book and document reading 
app, Voice Dream Reader, and the best OCR app, Voice Dream Scanner, they are 
all available in a bundle.

 

Writer is designed specifically for advanced note taking, though can be used 
for just simple notes.

It only edits txt, but it can export into RTF or HTML as well; and he has an 
experimental Word export that hasn’t worked for me of late.

It has a great spell checker, you can easily move paragraphs or sentences 
around, delete whole paragraphs.

You can get definitions of words, or if you are not sure of the correct word, 
you can write a general meaning and get word  suggestions.  Like, the fastest 
animal in Africa and get Cheetah.

 

The manual is very good, though because it has complex abilities, it has a bit 
of a learning curve, but well worth it.

It does not allow for folders to group your notes , but it has an easy search 
box to find a note quickly.

 

Another popular one is Ulises.  I’ve never used it, it seems pricy to me.

 

Meteor Notes used to be a good one too, but I’ve not used it in years.  I 
believe it allows for folders.

 

I do not think Pages or Word are worth your while since VoiceOver still doesn’t 
report accurately where you are in a file.

 

HTH,

Hi,

 

I am considering the possibility of using my iPhone SE 2020 as a note-taker 
using Braille to input the text.

 

I am a Braille user and I am wondering what apps people recommend for taking 
notes on an iPhone.

 

I have around 150 files on my current notetaker.  If I can use the iPhone one 
third as efficient as the Himms Braille Sense, then I want to try.

 

, This is my first iPhone so I do not know if there might be a native app 
already on the phone or should I consider something from the app store.

 

Are other iPhone users switching from note-takers to the iPhone?

 

Regards,

 

James B

Hi Mike and all,

 

I am new to all of this but that isn’t stopping me from adding my two cents 
worth.

 

I suspect that haptics

are important for the death and useless for everyone else.

 

Of course, the haptic feedback for the home button and the ability for the 
phone to vibrate are very important.

 

Everyone stay safe,

Mike,

 

I'd suggest you go to Settings, Accessibility, VoiceOver, Audio, and Sounds and 
Haptics. Take your phone out of its case. You can turn off sounds on this 
screen and also turn off Haptics or change the haptic intensity. I feel pretty 
sure you can adjust these settings in some combination where you can get a 
sense of the differing haptic feedback. If not, I wouldn't worry about it.

Hi Alan,

 

I have my haptic setting at 100%, but when I swipe around the only thing I feel 
is the reverberation of the speaker through the back of the phone and what I 
hear is the click sounds that the phone makes when swiping.  I reset it to, 0 , 
swiped around then set the haptic setting to, 100% , and didn't notice any 
difference.  Other than the Sound & Haptics in Settings and in Voiceover / 
Audio, is there somewhere else to change settings?  Hell, maybe everything is 
okay and I'm just not getting my head wrapped around this whole haptic thing!  
LOL  LOL  

 

BTW;  after turning my automatic updates to on in the iTunes & App Store, I'm 
now getting notified of updates and how many when touching the App Store icon 
on the Home screen.

Oh man, what a major difference this made when I changed from 100% to 50%.

 

Now, I don’t feel all of that thumping through the case of the phone. That’s 
not so cool when my phone is on my chest while I’m in bed. And, I am still

RE: I'm not sure that all of my emails are getting through and. Thank you Anna.

2020-05-24 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi,

 

I am considering the possibility of using my iPhone SE 2020 as a note-taker 
using Braille to input the text.

 

I am a Braille user and I am wondering what apps people recommend for taking 
notes on an iPhone.

 

I have around 150 files on my current notetaker.  If I can use the iPhone one 
third as efficient as the Himms Braille Sense, then I want to try.

 

, This is my first iPhone so I do not know if there might be a native app 
already on the phone or should I consider something from the app store.

 

Are other iPhone users switching from note-takers to the iPhone?

 

Regards,

 

James B

Hi James,

 

You're welcome. It sounds complicated, but if you know braille, you'll catch on 
quickly. It can be a very efficient way of typing text on an iPhone, especially 
if you type in contracted braille.

 

Best of luck,

Anna

RE: Scanning solution

NFB is spending a fortune to keep NFB news Line up and running.  They provide

I'm confused as to why anyone wants to criticize NFB.

And if the person who makes this stand and who used to sell it for $12 now 
sells it for $12 to NFB you should not expect them to sell it for $15, that is 
a 20% margin and no business can survive on that.

As a retailer I have often come across somebody who thought they had this 
awesome product and they wanted me to sell it. At the same time they would sell 
it themselves for say $50 and then I asked them what I would have to pay for 
the product. In many cases they told me the would give me a 10% or 15% discount 
for selling their product and they were surprised when I told them that in 
retail that unfortunately does not cut it. It is often impossible to explain to 
somebody that they would have to sell it to me for $30 if they want me to sell 
it for $50 if it should be worth my while or, if they want to sell it to me for 
$45 and I would have to sell it for $75 to make a decent margin that they also 
should sell it for that price themselves.

Of course if they want me to sell something on consignment where they give me 
the product and I only pay them for what I sell I can go a bit lower, but at 
the same time I may have competing products which I sell at a 35% or 40% margin 
and there is very little incentive for me to try and sell the customer that 
other product where I may only make a 25% margin.

And if shipping is involved I don’t blame anybody who charges a handling fee if 
they have to stock, pack and ship a product for which they make a $3 profit. I 
understand the NFB in the US is a government agency or maybe I’m wrong, here in 
Canada we have the CNIB (Canadian Federation for the Blind) and while they are 
a government agency, they also sell products for profit at their stores and I 
don’t blame them because just as with most government agencies funding is 
always a problem and they often have to find ways to make a bit of money to 
support their programs.

So, are they charging $20 total? 

Tomek charged $12, and shipped free matter without charging anything for 
handling. He would ship on the weekends while he was home from his day job 
which often required some travel.

He was not making any money really other than being able to continue buying the 
materials.

So, on the one hand, if he is still able to make them because the NFB is 
selling them for a small profit, that is fine.

 The week of the 25th, I will be writing up a review of another inexpensive 
stand option.

This one is called the Scanner Bin.

I saw one already assembled, but I'm getting a new one and will see how 
assembly goes.

I had written the Independence Market asking about the stand as people

trying to find out.

The people at the Independence Market have never responded to my emails.

Hi Miss Carolyn,

No, I turned raise to wake off.  It turned out that a feature called shake to 
undo was the problem.  Now, that is also turned off.

Thanks to several list members who posted the solution for the problem.

Although I have occasionally used a fifth generation iPod for a few years, this 
is my first experience with a hnew IOS device.  I can't believe how much I like 
the little iPhone SE 2020.

Is there a motion sensor on the iPhone SE 2020?

2020-05-17 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi all,

 

If I move my SE 2020 around, like dropping it in to my shirt pocket, it does
things.  For example, if I have the native email client open and I move the
phone around or drop it in to my pocket, I hear VO say:

alert, undo trash.

 

I am hoping that this feature can be turned off.  I dug around in the menus
with no luck.

 

Can someone tell me if I can turn this off?

 

Many thanks,

 

James B

RE: iPhone SE 2020

2020-05-17 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi Dennis and all,

 

At the very bottom of this post is an Amazon link to the $19.00, Zizo Bolts, 
military grade case that I like very much.  Its tough and rugged looking 
without being as heavy as an Otter box defender.  Its not dressy so an attorney 
or executive may not think it is dressy enough.

 

It comes with a nonadjustable detachable neck lanyard but I used my own 
adjustable lanyard.

 

It comes with a decent glass screen protector but I choose to use my own heavy 
duty Belkin screen protector from Apple.

 

It has a rugged built in kick stand that folds down absolutely flat in to the 
back of the case.  You definitely can not tell it is even there when you hold 
the phone in your hand.

 

The textured case feels like a cross between stiff leather and hard but, 
slightly flexible plastic.

 

My SE 2020 pressed down in to this case quite snug and tight.  There are no 
flaps or covers for the speaker or lightning port which I prefer.  The volume 
and power buttons are only slightly stiff and should become more flexable with 
use.  There is a large oval shaped opening that makes using the ringer mute 
switch easy even with my large fingers.  There is a very decent lip around the 
glass and the camera so you don’t have to worry about dropping the phone down 
on a hard surface.  Since cases never last me more than two years, I will be 
buying a backup because I hope to have my phone for around 5 years.

 

This case does come with a very very, cheap looking plastic holster that has a 
belt clip.  You can wear the holster on your belt and just stick the phone 
there if you want.  I consider the plastic holster to be a cheap piece of crap 
but, the Zizo case is awesome and it cost less than other military grade cases.

 

Good luck on finding a case that you like and congradulations on your new 
SE2020.  I can’t believe the loud rich volume that comes from this little 
phone.  You’re  gonna love this phone.

 

James B

You cannot put a volume control for Siri in the rotor.

You can only change Siri's volume by pressing the volume controls while Siri is 
talking.

You can put a volume control on the rotor for VoiceOver by going into the Rotor 
settings, and selecting Volume.

I'm not sure the rotor volume control applies to Siri. You should ask Siri to 
give you a 7-day weather forecast and adjust the volume to your liking with the 
up and down volume buttons while Siri is speaking.

Since you wrote to the iPhone list, I'm guessing you plan to do this with an 
iPhone. 

I do not know of any scanners that work with iPhones, beyond what you can do 
with the iPhone camera itself.

For A4 documents, I'm assuming these are text documents, I think Voice Dream 
Scanner is the best solution:

You may also want a scanning stand so you don't have to hold the phone about 12 
inches above the document if you are doing a ton of these.

Is the plan for the photos to just digitize them?

If so, just use the Camera and have someone sighted crop them so just your 
photo is left.

With photos, you want to follow the same distance ratio as with documents, and 
have the phone about as far above the photo as the photo is tall.

That could get tricky which is why you will need sighted assistance to crop the 
picture later.

You know, my case is pretty thick too. I think the one with the lanyard, even 
with the pocket might be thinner, need to check that out, once the big bad bug 
lets us out and about again.

Also that the thicker the back of the case the less likely the wifi charging is 
going to work as it can't get the charge through the back of the case / phone.

I hadn't thought about cards.  I guess you are concerned that the magnetic

I wish I did, James. One of the ladies in my card playing group got one, and 
several others got one. They have them at Wal-Mart, is all I know. They aare 
really soft, and I liked it. I could still maybe get one, just not put any 
cards in it unless I do it temporarily.

Hi all,

 

Does anyone know about any durable case for an iPhone SE 2nd generation.

 

It must have a hole in the case to atatch a lanyard.

 

Many thanks,

RE: Wifi assist and checking your settings after setting up a new device

Thank you very much for this.

Subject: Wifi assist and checking your settings after setting up a new device

 

Hi List,

 

We had a thread on the Wifi assist setting found under Settings, Cellular, and 
near the bottom of that screen. When this setting is on, cellular data can be 
used when one's wifi signal is weak. I had this setting turned off on my old 
iPhone from which I transferred my data and settings to my iPhone SE 2020 but 
after completing the setup and restore of everything, I noticed that Wifi 
assist was once again turned on. I think it's prudent to review your major 
settings after completing a new iPhone setup to ensure you ended up with the 
settings you want.

RE: Phone not responding to two-finger double-tap with incoming call.

2020-05-02 Thread bentleyj1952
Sieghard said in part,

First pressing Volume Up, then Volume down and then pressing and holding the 
power button is forcing a hard reset 


How long do you have to hold down the power button when doing a forced reset?

Is that the last step in doing a forced reset or, do you have to also tap 
something on the screen to finish the forced reset?

Thank you Sieghard,

If all you want to do is to turn your phone off, just press the power button 
and hold it until the "Power off" button appears, Voiceover will announce it, 
then just double tap and that's it.
First pressing Volume Up, then Volume down and then pressing and holding the 
power button is forcing a hard reset, really only necessary if your phone has 
locked up or is not eresponding in any other way.

To power your phone off, press volume up or down button along with the side 
button for a couple of seconds. Then you will want to double tap on power off.

Definitely not the time to share an under-the-tongue thermometer these days if 
multiple people in your household are using  it. I guess you could disinfect it 
each time somebody used it, but the contactless thermometers are definitely a 
better option right now and probably even if there weren’t a COVID-19 virus, 
after all, if you think you have a fever you probably want to avoid giving 
whatever causes it to anybody else. Of course that is not an issue if you are 
only 1 person who uses it.

Good to know.

The Kinsa is an under the tongue thermometer.  At least, the older model I have 
is and I’m pretty sure the Bluetooth one is as well.

I’ll keep this info for reference though.  Sounds excellent.

There is also the “Thermo” from Nokia Health formerly Withings.

Below are links, first to the Withings website directly, then to the Canadian 
Apple, Amazon and Best Buy, after that the US Apple Store, Amazon, Best Buy and 
Walmart. Finally I put the links for the Thermo app on both the Canadian and US 
App Stores. The only problem is that it seems you are not going to be able to 
find one since they show as sold out everywhere or, in the case of Amazon, as 
“currently unavailable”, I guess that is probably a result of COVID-19.

I haven’t checked, but that may very well be the case for the Kinsa thermometer 
as well.

The Thermo, by the way, connects via WiFi, not Bluetooth. we have had ours for 
probably 3 years or a bit longer and I hadn’t used it until recently for about 
2 years because just before Christmas 2017 was the only and last time I was 
sick with the flu and a fever in probably 10 years.

I did use it a bit more often recently just checking myself since I do have a 
retail store and am out in public every day. I realized I hadn’t even connected 
it yet to my iPhone 8 which I got a year and a half ago, but as before the 
connection was easy and quick and after signing in to the app with my user name 
and password my wife’s and my own profiles showed up and I could still see the 
measurements I took back in 2017.

The Thermo also has a display where a sighted person can instantly read the 
result, otherwise you can get the result inside the app about 15 or so seconds 
after the reading is complete.

There is one single button. You press it once and the thermometer makes a small 
vibration which means it’s ready. You have to be a little bit quick and have it 
ready pointing to the middle of your forehead about half an inch or so away 
from your skin since the measuring starts right away after the vibration and 
only lasts for about 4 or 5 seconds.

It reads the temperature contactless, as soon as it vibrates you smoothly move 
it from the middle of your forehead to your temple and stop there, the Thermo 
will vibrate twice to indicate it has finished the reading.

After you do this a few times you quickly get the hang of how fast you have to 
move it across your forehead so you get to your temple just before the second 
double vibration.

Even if you take a reading without the Thermo app open you soon get a 
notification that a new temperature reading is available, if you double tap on 
that notification

II wouldn’t be at all surprised if Apple would discontinue the iPhone 8 this 
year, but usually that happens in September. In any case, there is nothing 
wrong with waiting another 3 weeks or so, by then at least we would hear 
rumours or Apple probably would have confirmed if the iPhone SE 2 is coming and 
I don’t think you’ll have any problems finding an iPhone 8 for months to come 
as there should be lots of them in stores and the supply chain.

I’m sure I want the iPhone SE/9.  The problem is” is the 9 still coming out.

 

The risk as I see it, is just that the 8 may be discontinued and the SE/9 may 
be cancelled.

The risk you run with waiting if Apple discontinues the iPhone 8 once the 9 
comes out and you decide  you rather the 8 you might or might not be able to 
get it.

Hi all,

 

I would love to buy the much talked about iPhone SE/9 if it is even still 
eventually coming out.

 

But, I do not want to wait more than one to two months so I am also considering 
the regular iPhone 8.

 

So, this leads me to 2 questions.

 

Does anyone know how much longer the new iPhone 8’s might still be available?

 

Does any one know if the iPhone SE/9 will be out in a month or two.  Or, has 
the SE been cancelled.

 

Thanks for any links or information.

For me, my 8 is the perfect size.  I can easily put it in my pants pocket and 
listen to a book with a pair of bluetooth headphones on.  I hope the new iPhone 
9 would have as much internal memory around 256 gigs like I got on my iPhone 8. 
 If I didn't download so many bard books I'd have a lot more free space lol.

I’m sure I want the iPhone SE/9.  The problem is” is the 9 still coming out.

 

The risk as I see it, is just that the 8 may be discontinued and the SE/9 may 
be cancelled.

The risk you run with waiting if Apple discontinues the iPhone 8 once the 9 
comes out and you decide  you rather the 8 you might or might not be able to

The advantage to the 8 is I believe it comes with iOS 12 and if you find iOS 13 
buggy you don't have to upgrade it.  also the storage size on the 9 is rumored 
to be 64 and 128 same as the 8.  So if you want an 8 grab one now.

Yeah, I'm 67 years old and it blows me away that a person can have thousands 
and thousands of books in their pocket.  And, the phone being able to fit in my 
pocket for me, will be about the number one requirement when I purchase my next 
phone.

For me, my 8 is the perfect size.  I can easily put it in my pants
pocket and listen to a book with a pair of bluetooth headphones on.  I
hope the new iPhone 9 would have as much internal memory around 256
gigs like I got on my iPhone 8.  If I didn't download so many bard
books I'd have a lot more free space lol.

2020-03-27 Thread bentleyj1952
It is my understanding that the current iPhone 8 has a 4.7 inch screen and is 
currently the smallest phone that Apple makes.

 

It is also my understanding that the new iPhone SE or, 9, what ever it will be 
called, is the same size as the 8.

 

I prefer a new phone so if I am correct, I will just wait.

Ok, Do you realise that the 8 isn’t one of the smaller form factor phones like 
the SE1 is?

 

Neither is the 9/ se2 I believe.

If I were in your position I would give it until the middle of May to see if 
there's any announcements about when this new phone might be available. If 
everything I've red is true, Apple might want to get this out there as soon as 
possible if they have projections of selling a certain amount of units by the

Should I buy an Iphone 8 now or wait for the potential of buying the new iPhone SE/9?

2020-03-26 Thread bentleyj1952
Hi all,

 

I would love to buy the much talked about iPhone SE/9 if it is even still
eventually coming out.

 

But, I do not want to wait more than one to two months so I am also
considering the regular iPhone 8.

 

So, this leads me to 2 questions.

 

Does anyone know how much longer the new iPhone 8's might still be
available?

 

Does any one know if the iPhone SE/9 will be out in a month or two.  Or, has
the SE been cancelled.

 

Thanks for any links or information.

I’ve been doing some hunting online using chrome as my browser,

 

While I was searching a auto popup from chrome spoke to me saying that the 
March Apple event has been cancelled.

Has anyone else heard this as yet?

RE: iPhone xr

2020-03-09 Thread bentleyj1952
How big is the screen on the 10R?

 

 

Are both speakers on the bottom or one speaker on the bottom and one speaker on 
the top of the phone?

the 10R is one of the best iPhones I've ever owned. It has awesome battery 
life, very nice sound and it's fast and snappy. Getting used to the lack of 
home button and gestures is simple and easy once you've spent a few minutes 
with the phone. I honestly think this is the best iPhone Apple has ever made 
for both stability and reliability.

What specifically do you need to know? The XR does not have a home button any 
more, but it still has the  volume up/down button and the side button on the 
opposite side.

Because of no home button it of course also does not have Touch Id, but uses 
Face Id for unlocking the phone (if you set it up) and the PIN is still 
required when the phone is rebooted or if Face Id fails a number of times.

If you get a new XR and want to start Voiceover to set it up you have to press 
that side button 3 times quickly just like you would have pressed the home 
button 3 times quickly on the phones which had one.

The rest is pretty much the same except that you should probably either get 
somebody to show you the gestures you need to learn to replace the home button, 
e.g. getting out of an app back to the home screen, bringing up the app 
switcher etc. or check Applevis for Podcasts about this.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Sieghard, does this keyboard use user changeable batteries, or is it built in 
as a rechargeable?  

Thanks,

In my opinion the Logitech K780 is the best fit here, it's pretty compact, has 
a numeric pad and it can pair with up to 3 devices.
The two drawbacks are its weight and the fact that you have to install Logitech 
Options to use it effectively with a laptop and it's a pretty inaccessible 
install.
The keyboard is somewhat heavy since it is weighted so you can stand an iPad 
upright in the groove which runs along the back of the keyboard and for that 
the keyboard has to be heavy enough so it wouldn't tip over. 
The good thing is that once Logitech Options is installed and the checkbox is 
checked which makes function keys in a Windows environment behave the 
traditional way instead of being media controls and such, you can more or less 
forget about it.
If you have a sighted person around who knows how to click a mouse the 
installation takes a couple of minutes.

Hi all,
I am going to jump in here as well.  I am looking for a bluetooth keyboard that 
is small enough to be really portable as I am going to be doing some 
travelling, but I want to be able to pair it with both my laptop and iPad.  I 
would like something with the numpad so I can use JAWS with it as well as 
VoiceOver on my iPad/iPhone.

Thanks,

Sieghard,

 

 

 

I'm interested in the Logitech G613 Lightspeed Wireless mechanical 

gaming keyboard and Amazon is selling it currently for USD $69.99 

which seems a good price. I'll confess that I'm a big fan of 

old-school keyboards which have distinctive mechanical click feedback 

when pressing the keys and I'm still using an old IBM PC AT keyboard 

that I snagged from the trash where I used to work. This keyboard is 

a tank and was obviously over-spec'ed but I offer this up so you'll 

know the type of keyboard I'm used to using.

 

 

 

I know you commented on the switches of this Logitech not being as 

nice as the other expensive keyboard you mentioned but I'm curious as 

to your opinion of its mechanical click feedback. I welcome any 

additional comments you could share about it before I order one.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

 

Alan Lemly

If you want a big full-size keyboard for both computer and iPhone I 

highly recommend the Logitech G613 Lightspeed Wireless mechanical 

gaming keyboard.

 

It has no backlighting, it uses a USB dongle for connectivity to the 

PC which has a 1 millisecond latency and you can pair it to your 

phone via Bluetooth which is also super responsive. Switching is done 

via a slider switch and it’s virtually instant.

 

I use this keyboard as my main office keyboard, it is big and heavy 

and not something you would want to travel with and my only complaint 

is that it uses these Japanese switches called Roma-G, I wish it used 

Cherry MX Blue switches which I have on my wired keyboards from the 

company “Das Keyboard”, I have the model called
