Blind Bargains Qast 26: Trainers, NVDA And AI Squared

Joe, J.J. and Patrick are taking some needed downtime after all the crazyness of the 2015 convention season. But before we say goodbye to the summer, here is a portion of the NFB A.T. Trainers Division meeting from July. Jenny Lineback leads a panel about NVDA with Rick Reed and BBQ contributor Chancey Fleet.

The second portion of our audio contains more discussion on Windows 10 with Ai Squared's marc Solomon.

Greetings all, I recently upgraded my PC to Windows 10. I am liking it so far. One pain point though is that you cannot use first letter navigation in the all apps list in the start menu. I was doing some testing and found a little trick to use in the all apps to make it a bit easier to navigate. Here it is: Tip: Navigating the all apps list quicker 1. Open up the start menu 2. Shift tab to the all apps button and press enter 3. Once in the all apps you should be on the recently added section. As this sections name suggests, this is a list of recently added apps. 4. When you are on the list of all the apps, you can press shift tab to move to a list view of sorts. This list contains: Recently added, &, 0-9 and then all the letters of the alphabet. 5. When in this list you can move up and down using your arrow keys. 6. When you are on one of these items, the letter C for example, and press shift tab you will land on the first app that starts with that letter. Using this tip will hopefully make navigating this list a bit easier since you cannot use first letter navigation. Regards, Greg Wocher

After listening to the latest edition of the podcast I am shocked. Shocked and disgusted by Joe Steinkamp's behavior during Marc Solomon's talk. Joe interupted and simply hijacked Marc's talk. Joe, you have a podcast; if you cannot keep yourself quiet during someone else's time then go outside and talk to a wall. In my opinion you owe Marc, and everyone in that audience, an apology. However, I don't expect one. Kevin Barry
