    I'm blind And I use a guide dog, and I am a ham radio operator and I fly airplanes thanks to my computer. I know if I were sighted, I would have had a career in the air and hopefully would have made the right stuff for either the CDR's Seat or the PLT's Seat on the sadly retired space shuttle or a tour of duty on the ISS.

  1. Hello to you John. Like you advised, I went out to the following link: https://secure.simmarket.com/account_history.php But my screen reader JAWS for windows latest version is 2020, can't find the order history area so I can't down load my user name and unlock code for FSUIPC ver 4. Could you please hip it to me to my e-mail address at: kolesar16417@roadrunner.com I know, I'm a huge pain in the neck and I can't help being blind or having to use a screen reader to interact with my pc. I due hope you can understand my problem. Very Thankfully Yours, Ron Kolesar
  2. Many Thanks for the help Tom. I just went out to the sim market web site like you suggested. I was able to log in and see my profile, but I wasn't able to see my history or purchased programs. Could you ship me a direct link please? The screen reader that I'm using to interact with my pc is JAWS for windows version 2020. Its sold around the globe. But at least here in the states, you can down load a 40 minute demo then for additional 40 minute demos, you'll have to constantly reboot your pc. But the web address is at: www.freedomscientific.com I welcome the help. Very Thankfully Yours, Ron Kolesar Ham Radio Station and emergency communicating station KR3DOG
  3. Hello from Ron Kolesar, AKA The Blind Pilot. I'd deeply appreciate it if you'd write me off list at: kolesar16417@roadrunner.com I'm using FSX-SE for my foundation for flying. I also was a beta tester in the hand to ear military flight simulator called Three-D Velocity. I'd love to have a force feedback flight yoke as well. You now can down load the Thre-D Velocity flight simulator program from www.github.com You the above URL address will not work with ie 11, and you'll need to set up a free account as well. The TDV program states that we can flythe Three-D Velocity hand to ear aircraft and have access to all of the features with only twelve buttons, I'd like to see something that has twenty buttons. That way we're not constantly switching back and forth from the features that work with the force feedback flight yoke or joystick and those features that only work with the keyboard. Also, I'd like to have as many hand to ear coordination programs to work with the handheld device as well. We started this project in 2010, when everyone had a 32 bit processor. We never could find a two stick handheld controller that would work 1. in the 64 bit processor world. 2. Would work with the force feedback feature of the tdv project. This would be awesome if you could design your project. Because, I've written a huge detailed letter to Microsoft for their newest project for Ocoter 13th of this year called Flight Simulator 2020. I haven't yet heard anything back from them yet. I also might be able to fly via our local flight school attached to Erie International as well. I have another hand to ear program that I was a beta tester for that not only force feedback would bring it to life, but shock feedback also would bring it to life. I hope you think of me when you're ready for beta testers to stress out your project.

  4. Hello from Blind Pilot Ron Kolesar. I don't know what happened but I lost my unlock code for the FSUIPC for ver 4 for fsx-se. Is there any way you could look up my records to ship me a copy of my unlock code? The e-mail address that I used is as follows: kolesar16417@roadrunner.com Very Thankfully yours, Ron Kolesar.

    Falcon 7X

    Hello to my fellow DF7X pilots. I'm blind and I have the FSX-SE for my foundation. Prepar 3-d just doesn't work for me or works with the DF7X. But I love the free version of the DF7X from the Fly Away simulation down load library. You don't need to be a paid member to grab something from the down load library. Since that version of the DF7X is blind friendly, any chance we could use that as a foundation for designing a blind friendly DF8X? Why would one want to sell off their DF7X and jump to a DF8X? 1. The DF8X flies 500 miles further than the DF7X. 2. The fuel onboard the DF8X is 35 percent more efficient than onboard the older DF7X as well. I also would need someone to help me to transfer and update my Pittsburgh Steelers football team paint job from my DF7X to the DF8X as well. That's if I could get someone to help me out. Just my two cents on this topic. I can be reached at: kolesar16417@roadrunner.com Many Thanks. Ron AKA The Blind Pilot in Flight sim circles.

    Falcon 7X

    If you want a good DF7X? Go to the down load free library from Fly away Simulation. Their web address is at: www.flyawaysimulation.com Most important, make sure you grab version 2. I had someone do a Pittsburgh Steelers paint job for my DF7X. Because I am blind, I love the DF7X from FAS. I just wished that there was a DF8X, which is the successor to the DF7X and in the real world was flight certified both by the U.S. and by Europe authoritiesin the summer of 2017. Why would one want to upgrade from the DF7X to the 8x? 1. The 8x flies five hundred miles further than the 7x. 2. The fuel onboard the 8x is 35 percent more efficient than onboard the older 7x. I'd love to find a blind friendly 8x like the 7x from FAS or from anyone else. Hope this feedback will help out.

  7. Hello from Ron Kolesar, AKA the Blind Pilot. For some reason I installed my traffic 2013 and I can not hear any ai traffic. How can I fix this? I have the two programs from www.flight1.com Third Party Aircraft Sound Installer version1.2 and Third Party GA sound utility also version 1.2. Now I also had the AI traffic program Ultimate Traffic 2. But I was told that my traffic 2013 is the most up to date copy of this program, that it was also closer to the real world and was more blind friendly than the older ut2 program. So I picked it up from www.fspilotshop.com I am using win 10 with fsx steam. Should I uninstall my traffic 2013 and try to install it once again? How can I please start hearing ai traffic while flying with mt 2013? How does a blind person fly? This is a valid question to ask and a easier question to answer. I use the following three programs that work hand and hand together. 1. FSX Steam. 2. The small bridge of a program FSUIPC. FSUIPC allows FSX to communicate back and forth with other programs. 3. Last but not least, the program that all blind pilots need is the program from Canada called Its Your Plane or IYP for short. Their web addressis as follows: www.itsyourplane.com Fo5r GA flights, the only bird I fly is the Dassault Falcon 7X or for short the DF7X until we can get a FSX friendly copy of the now FAA and Europe Flight Certified the successor to the DF7X the now DF8X Three Engine trijet. How does a blind person interact withone their computer? This to is a valid question to ask and a easier question to answer as well. We use a program called a screen reader. There are several out on the market and some are free. But the one that the majority of us blind pc owners use is called JAWS for windows. For further info about JAWS for wintows and to make my traffic 2013 more blind accessible, their address is at www.freedomscientific.com The current fersion of JAWS is version 18, but version 19 will be out in October or November. Each year there is a new major release of JAWS around October or November. But there are little upgrades throughtout the year. The demo will run for about 40 minutes. So I highly recommend that you set a timer for around 30 minutes. That way you can have enough time to save what you're working on and reboot your pc. Because when the time runs out, you'll have to reboot your pc and then fire up jaws for another 40 minute demo period. So would deeply appreciate some help on this topic.

  8. Hello from Ron Kolesar, AKa The Blind Pilot. I had picked up my traffic 2013, but can not hear any ai traffic when I'm flying within FSX STEAM. I ended up reinstalling Ultimate Traffic 2. I had picked up MT 2013 because I was told that the UI is more blind friendly and that the program is more up to date than the older ut2 program. But I can not get it to work. I have the following two programs installed. Third Party Aircraft Sound Installer version 1.2 and the Third Party GA sound utility program version 1.2 as well. I'd like to figure out what I'm doing wrong and why I can not get my traffic 2013 to work while flying within fsx steam. Can anyone help me out with step by step instructions? While within the Third Party Aircraft Sound Installer program, I down arrowed to the my traffic link and simply installed mt 2013 as administrator and intered in my unlock code with no problems. So what did I do wrong? Very Thankfully Yours, Ron Kolesar AKA The Blind Pilot and in the real world known as U.S. ham Radio Station KR3DOG
