I've seen some scrolling ebooks like one in above URL but somehow when I tried to print to PDF or
'Select All' & paste into MSWord, it's only partially printed/pasted.

Any tools/method to extract them out?

Need to combine OCR generate fields into meaningful values.

I have an OCR engine working well as it generates a space delimited text file. But the small fragment need to be combined into something meaningful as a form of post processing.

For example, the text on the page says:

VS DB DB Business Card - Retail

But in space delimited form, this is 7 fields.

I already have a finite list of about 25 possible strings, and can embed then in an array, such as

"VS DB CPS/Retail"
"VS DB DB Business Card - Retail"

so, I need to post-process the OCR generated file to be comma quote delimited, and use one of these pre-defined strings, when the OCR finds them.

What is a good paradigm for this?

Also, given this is OCR, there is a chance for a read error.

Thanks.

Using iOS - Ipod.

Found some interesting podcasts with big libraries - hundreds of episodes.

So far, only way to download them all would be to...click each one and select download.

Need top find an iOS podcast app that allows me to bulk download all podcasts.

I know Podbean allows this.  But, it is super buggy and crashes all the time.

Any others?

Thanks!

Got a lecture on MP3.  About an hour long.

Want to cut bits of it into a loop.

Looking for super simple drag & drop audio cutting and splicing.

Audacity seems too complicated.  Need something simpler.  Only requirement is to select blocks of audio and splice them together.  No need for processing or enhancing.

What looks like an easy piece of software to do this?

We use iTextSharp to create PDFs throughout our site.  We have a Comments field that can grow.
It doesn't look like iTextSharp supports dynamic attributes - or at least the way we are using it with a pre-defined template.

sample of the code for the comments section:

  stamper.AcroFields.SetField("Comments", sb.ToString());
  stamper.AcroFields.SetFieldProperty("Comments", "textsize", 6f, null);

Is there any way/tools to convert/port softwares to portable versions:
I'm looking at converting freewares like ATube catcher (a video
downloader), WPS Pdf to Word converter, PDFsam.

Curious how virtualization tools that do P2V make the various
softwares work esp when migrating from say physical Win2003
to virtual Win2008R2 VMs : must be along similar lines

SCREENSHOT Before and AfterI JUST upgraded VLC to version 3.0.4.  in the previous version, when streaming from a radio station, the title and artist would show in the title bar and in a Windows notification in the lower-right of the screen.  Now only the title of the mp3 (the part of the URL following the "/.com/" shows in the title bar.  Perhaps a setting was changed during the update, but it's not something I remember setting when I did the original setup.

On another computer, with Version 2.2.1, the titlebar shows the title and artist as shown in the screensnip, so I uninstalled Version 3.0.4 on the subject computer and installed 2.2.1, and it still only shows the URL, so I don't think it's a VERSION issue.  

When I click view, status bar, the status bar doesn't show the title and artist either - it DOES on the computer I'm comparing.

Upon using Youtube Creator Studio, a student in a public school uploaded a video to a verified channel of which Youtube Creator Studio rejected the video because of length.  The account has been verified and we have been able to ascertain that a video can be up to twelve hours.  We need a way to get Creator Studio to recognize videos longer than 15 minutes in length.

I have a client who has a lot of old wmp files (windows media photo), which I need to convert to any modern file type.  I cannot find anything which will open them, let alone convert them.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

I've tried all the Adobe Apps and even gone back to an XP machine with Windows Photo Viewer and Windows media Player, but no go :(

Thanks

I have a laptop and I want to record audio. I have 2 microphones (a budget one and a "real" one) But: recording audio with one of the two mics doesn't work: the internal mic of my laptop is used in stead. How can I fix this? Do I need to contact Lenovo?

I have used this webcam before and it worked fine. The program, application, or website, turned the camera on. It's a Windows 7 desktop. When inserted in the front USB port it recognizes the device.

How to turn the camera on manually.
Maybe I wish to take a photo of something and save the image as a file.
The latest failure was trying to get photo of myself for travel via Airbnb. Their program gave a window to allow the camera but it never came on. Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000.

Hi, my teams often bring new designs to me for Websites and Apps.

I have been looking for a way to markup my feedback on their designs digitally and send back to them quickly.

I have looked into Google Jamboard and other similar screens but they are not available in Ireland.

I have an iPad Pro and a Pencil and I was thinking of getting them to do the following, however the process is very cumbersome for the designers:

01 - email each design / screen to me
02 - I save them to Camera Roll
03 - import into a sketch program / app
04 - mark up
05 - save back to camera roll
06 - email marked up screenshots back to designers

Is anyone aware of an app or web app that reduces the amount of steps above or provides a more productive way?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

We am looking for a camera to buy for our conference/ meeting room which will be used with Skype for business.

The conference room includes a conference table which seats 4-6 people (2 on right of table and 2 on left) and a 55 inch display mounted on a TV stand beside the wall about 4 foot from the table.

We may also need a microphone on the meeting room table for the Skype calls.

1. What would you recommend as the best camera to buy for this room?

2. Is there any other products you would recommend to use with the camera you recommended?

Thanks,
Robbie

Click on the album you want to edit.
Select “Edit in Organizer”. ...
Select “Batch Edit” the “Change Permissions”.
Choose “Only you (private)”.
Allow your friends and/or family to see your images. ...
Click “Change Permissions”.


It showed progress bar 100% and said thanks which make me think it is done


but when i go back it is still showing as public instead of private

how to make all my albums private rather than exposing them to entire world


also how to make my videos under photostream private

i wasted already 3 hours on this excersise but not solution yet
https://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157631475086032/

above link says it cannot be done

"when I went back to the set in organizr, they were still marked as private."

You can't check the permissions in Organizer. It will only ever show you your account default setting.


also how to make auto uploader on my cell phone and windows desktop/laptop to make all photos automatically uploaded as private rather than public?

Please advise

Help configure a video editing rig for Windows most  likely using Adobe Premier. I am looking at the Dell precision and the budget is in $2,500 t o $3,000ish range. I would appreciate reasons for any recommendations that get added on to to this https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/desktop-and-all-in-one-pcs/precision-tower-3000-series-3620/spd/precision-t3x20-series-workstation/xctop3620mtus_3 or another brand/option.

I have already checked the specs from Adobe for minimum requirements https://helpx.adobe.com/in/premiere-pro/system-requirements.html but real world experience  here will really help.  I know you can keep throwing  money at memory and other hardware and rendering videos takes up a lot of resources. At some point there must be diminishing returns though.

There is a Google app that can be used on a phone whereby someone speaks English and the interpretation can be in Spanish and shows on the screen.

There is also a physical device on Amazon where you can type English and Spanish version appears on the screen.

What we need is a technical device or app that lets us speak English through a small microphone attached to our shirt and the Spanish version of what we say is shown on an overhead large screen.

Need more brain power than I have to get it done.

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

I would like to recognize sounds within an audio stream.  For instance, a doorbell.
Basically it would be the equivalent to using OpenCV to identify a face within a video stream.
So I am looking for the equivalent of an OpenCV library for audio (rather than images/video).  Or perhaps some cloud-based solution -- although I have not see anything on AWS or Azure.

This is my command: vlc --width=1920 --height=1375 --video-x=0 --video-y=1175 video.mp4 --no-video-deco --no-embedded-video

No matter what I change the --width= setting to, it doesn't make any difference. The video window is always the same (very large. Am I missing something? I'm using version VLC 3.0.2 for Windows.

I am looking for a way to automatically run a MP4 or MOV video file every 15 minutes on my tv while it is playing live tv.  I am not sure how it would work, maybe there is a device that can run a scheduler to automatically interrupt live tv with my video file every 15 minutes or maybe some software running on a computer that is attached to the tv?  The other issue is how to automatically change the input of the tv to show my video and then go back to the live broadcast input when done?  I hope I have explained this clearly enough.  Please ask me questions if you need to.  Thank you very much for any help with this.

I am working on this program from last 4 days. But still I can't find any solution.
I want to create a organizer program. Which will be move images from one folder to another.
So here is my Code.
    import os , shutil
    path = open(r"/home/ironman/Desktop/lists.txt","r+")
    save_name = open("/home/ironman/Desktop/files.txt","w+")
    insp = ['inspiration', 'motivational']
    names =['girls','fitness','women','girl','Kids','friend','life','gym','exam','daily','religious','swami']
    for file in path:
        for Folder , SubFolder , Files in os.walk(file.strip()):
            os.chdir(os.path.join(file.split('\n')[0]))
            for files in Files:
                ff = os.path.join(file, files)
                x = os.path.abspath(files)

                for sr in insp:
                    if files.endswith(".jpg") and sr in files:

                        global full_path
                        if not os.path.isdir('/home/ironman/Pictures/'+sr):
                            os.mkdir('/home/ironman/Pictures/'+ sr)
                        else:
                            continue
                    for filename in names:
                        full_path = ("/home/ironman/Pictures/%s" % sr)
                        if filename in files:
                            src = os.path.join(full_path,files)
                            srt = os.path.join(full_path,filename)
                            if not os.path.isdir(srt):

I have a lot of photo and movie files in our company. I would like to setup a server where our employees can login to, and find & download media files.
These should be cataloged in groups and contain metadata.
Does such a webserver exist which I can setup upon a Ubuntu server (or Windows server) ?
I prefer open source, but if we need to buy one, this should be no problem is it is affordable. No monthly subscription.

Hi All,

I am using 6 Sonos speakers in multiple rooms at the same floor.
There are 2 accespoints with the same channel and same SSID .

When one accespoints is online the most 2 far removed speakers stutter sometimes or loses connection, the other speakers wont stutter or lose connection when this happends.

If I connect both accespoints then only 1 or 2 speakers keep working while it has the same configuration as the other accespoint.

I tried several things like changing the channels or disable mesh encryption but Sonos keeps failing.

I searched online for multiple options but it seems a lot of people have issues with the Sonos speakers with multiple accespoints in the same configuration.

Does anyone here know a solution so i can use all my Sonos speakers at once over 2 accespoints?

Kind Regards,

Agrippa
