Two Koreas ‘at a turning point’ says South president

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said a window of opportunity to improve ties was open. The Korean peninsula is at a “turning point” and there are opportunities for change, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said in a new year speech. He said Seoul would “respond strongly” if provoked by North Korea, with whom it remains technically at war. But he said that the biggest goal was stability, and that aid-for-disarmament talks could resume if Pyongyang halted its nuclear activities. On Friday, North Korea told the people to not enspect much change from the new leadership. The Country’s Defence Commishion told the citizens of the North to defend Kim Jong-un to the last man, and to give all that they can to defend the Leader of North Korea. Kim Jong-un has succeeded his father, Kim Jong-il, who died on 17 December at the age of 69. Kim Jong-il had ruled North Korea since the death of his father, Kim Il-sung, in 1994. The impoverished and isolated communist country faces ongoing food shortages. Funds are channelled to the military and North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests since 2006. Lee Myung-bak said that peace was his priority and that a “window of opportunity” had opened for better ties with the North. He says that their is alot of turning points allong the Korean peninsula, and a window of opertunity could be underway to connect with the North. In the last two years, ties between the two Koreas have been extremely tense. Mr Lee’s decision to link the provision of aid to North Korea to progress on nuclear disarmament has angered the North. South Korea also blames its northern neighbour for sinking its warship in March 2010, killing 46 sailors. Eight months later, North Korea shelled a Southern border island, killing four people. Kim Jong-un took over after the death of his father, Kim Jong-il, two weeks ago, South Korea however, will matain a State of National Security along the 38Th Paraele, should the North go on the Ofenceve, and attack the South again… Pyongyang denies any role in the first incident and says South Korea provoked the second. It has castigated the South for failing to send a formal delegation to pay respects to Kim Jong-il. In the New Year Message, the Defence Commity in the North maid an announcement to defend the New Leader, dispite if they have to become a human shield. “The whole party, the entire army and all the people should possess a firm conviction that they will become human bulwarks and human shields in defending Kim Jong-un unto death.” Kim Jong-un, meanwhile, spent New Year’s Day visiting a tank division, state media said. His father was regularly reported to have visited factories, military units and agricultural projects on inspection tours around the country. The outcome of this, is for the moment, unknown, but it is belived, that maybe with the new leadership, we might be able to go forth and have a Conection with the North, that we have waited for for many years.

A 7.0magnitude earth quake struck japan on Sunday leaving no apparent  damage. The quake struck near the island  of Torishima 370 miles away from Tokyo japan. Buildings were shaking but suffered no damage. Many trains had to be delayed fore safety checks.

Computer programs that benifit the Blind & Visually Impaired

As many know, it is at times difficult to use a personal Computer, or to use computers in general.
The world of the sighted indavidual will use their eyes, and struggle if they have eye strain, or if the glair off the screen is too much.
While the Visually Impaired croud will use what are called, Screenreaders.
Now, a Screenreader is a downloadable program used to benifit the use of it by the Visually Impaired, by taking text on a computer, and transmitting it through Audio output, that will give the user a way to do book reports, Computer Programing anywhere from Computer Annalliest to programing for Nasa, the U.S. Military at Rollsroyce Jet Engens.
Thats right, I said the Corporation that maid the Rollsroyce Merllin Engen for the greatest World War II aircraft such as the Lancaster III, P-51 D Mustang, The P-38 Lighting, and the Spitfire.
But these Programs are also used in the Automoteave corporation aswell. as for other great jobs such as AT&T, Virision, Sprint, T-Mobile, Rebel, and many more.
The one most used at the Indianapolis Yellow Cab Company, in Indianapolis, Indiana is JAWS for Windows.
Now, Jaws stands for Job Access With Speech.
This screenreader if looking to use it, it able to do all programs on a computer for instents Microsoft Word, and the new Microsoft Word Publisher.
With it, you can make spread sheets, compose Computer Programs and write them, aswell as go on the web, and use programs such as Skype, or even Facebook & Twitter.
The bummer for this marvelous program is the price tag on it.
$1300 is the new price for it.
It use to be $1200 but with the Economey, it will not work for some people and their budgit.
Now, Jaws has a 40 Minute Demo you can use, but you have to restart the computer to use it after 40 Minutes.
You can find more Infomation by going to freedomscientific.com and or going to http://www.freedomscientific.com/products/fs/jaws-product-page.asp and get their quickly.
Now, as many know in the Blind & Visually Impaired world, people with site, or some sight who wish to understand more, go to info sorces such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Wikipedia, Bing, Google, and Ask.com for info.
Well, we have a vidio for you all, and will talk about some of the basics of this ScreenReader.

Moving on, we now look at Window Eyes.
Window Eyes, a cheeper virision in some ways, is also widely used in and throughout the Blind community. It can preform all that Jaws can do, but does have quite the limmatations to go along with it.
We have a Preview of the Window Eyes 7.2 that was created by one of the good people at GW Micro INC.
In this Vidio, it will discuss some of the new feachures in Window Eyes, and along with Office 2010.

This poticular Screen is different from JAWS in price, and in other levels. But it has simmularitty between the two.
As shown, Window Eyes, is some what more difficult to use on sertin levels.
With motaple coursers, and different commands with the coursers, it can overlaps with confushion.
The user might have slight problems with the program due to the matter of Megabite space, aswell as some scripts for websites, Programs, and other things will not work with this softwear.
Its Price Tag of anywhere from $800 to $1000 is about a good few hundered dollars cheeper then JAWS, but the problem of cost will lingure, as will the problem of it not working with Skype on some Acasions, this Screen Reader is just one of the many avalable programs on market.
Now, with the Two main Programs that will put a bomb in your wallet, we now move to the last screenreader on our list for this Article of Science & Technology.
NVDA or Non Visual Desktop Access, is one of the many programs on market.
It is a freewear program, and is a walping $0.00 No charge program.
It was created in the Late 1990’s and has prospered sense with donations, and fundrasers. It though, does have a $100 price if you want extra, but eithor way, it is a program with no monthley or yearly payments. Just one and your ready to use the Computer you so greatly own.
It is well known for the voice it outputs from the computer.
The Distinctive british like voice that is the Defalt, is at times anoying, but a shure sign that NVDA is rolling along.
It though will work with Microsoft Works. but will not work with Microsoft Word Publisher.
The reason is mearly the lac of scripts provided to NVDA programs.
Though it will work with Microsoft Works, Skype, Notepad, The Internet, Macafee Internet Security, and with Microsoft Web Outlook, it is a drawback for not working with other programs such as Nortin Security, Adobie Installer, and can barly keep up with popular chatrooms such as xat.com and other popular chatroom providers.
It will work with Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Blogger, Youtube, Google, Bing, Facebook Chat, Myspace, Myspace Chat, and many other great inventions of social media.
Though it can on a side note, kinda work with xat chatrooms, will involve lots of key command monouvering, aswell as refreshing the page if the text people type starts to not be detected by the program.
NVDA is though a great program, with a great history ahead.
With the current NVDA Virision 11.1 Installer & Portable, this Softwear program will sertenly be a great aid for thoese in need of a PC Program for visual dissabillity.
Now, like we all know in the visually Impaired, people want a vidio with more infomation, and a chance to see it in action. We have one on NVDA here below, from the Crossroads Rehabillitation Center in indianapolis, Indiana.

You can obtain these Screen readers online, or over the phone and have the softwear within 3 to 5 Bisness days. When Installing, a voice will come on to give you step by step installing instructions, so you can do it your self, if your visually Impaired.
The following are where you can Obtain the following Screenreaders, and more Infomation about them, and their use.

The Best in the Country, is in Vancoover, Washington State.
For more Infomation on Blind Schools in your State, contact your local NFB, ACB, or AFB Chapter in your Area for more details.
I too am Visually Impaired, and used NVDA for the work I do on this site, and to communacate with friends and Co Workers on Facebook.
The Program from my stand point is very helpful, and will benifit others who need it for their ongoing day to day perpous.
