Re: Image

 

You still need to let me (or any assistant) know what program is giving the problem.  If this is occurring when you attempt to open any photo from a File Explorer window, you need to check what your default app is for photo viewing.  That could be the problem.

If I open any image in my computer, computer shows black screen instead of showing that image. How to fix it?


Re: Nvda accessible converter WMA to MP3

Brian,

If I understand you clearly, you are saying that my message should have gone to the NVDA main group.  Well, since I was asking about a WMA to MP3 converter that is accessible, I hesitated to that and that why I sent my message to the chat group.  I am sure someone else would have unkindly criticized me if I did what you are suggesting just because I was asking about a converter.  I am almost hesitant to ask question on this group as there some unkind gents on the main group.  I try to avoid giving opportunities to people to disturb my peace.  I’ll just resort to Google from now on.  I am not trying to be unkind toward you as you have proved yourself to be a kind and helpful gentleman.

Blessings

Pascal,

           Again, I want to encourage you to ask questions about programs that are accessible with NVDA for a specific purpose on the main group, as that's entirely appropriate.   If someone gives one that you want to get into how to use the program, where NVDA itself is incidental, then that sort of discussion should occur here on the Chat Subgroup.

            It's perfectly acceptable to ask questions of the form, "Do you know of software for {insert purpose here} that's accessible with NVDA?   There are just so many programs that are not screen reader friendly, and asking for input on which ones are with a given screen reader is specific to that screen reader and that program.

I'm just curious as to whether you've found the root cause of this peculiar behavior.   I know by default password fields are hidden and you should be getting the "star star star" behavior out of a screen reader.   I'd love to know why you (and, quite likely many others) are not getting that intermittently and seemingly unpredictably at the moment.

Brian,

You are right, it is NVDA doing the reading.  The interesting thing, it does not happen at every log in.  I’ll check the setting of the button at the end of the password and pin.

  Many thanks.

Pascal,

         Just for clarity, Windows 10 announces nothing, the screen reader does.

         I presume you're using NVDA and under its General Settings you have the Automatically start NVDA after I log on to Windows and Use NVDA on the Windows logon screen (requires administrator privileges) checkboxes checked.   I do not know of a way to make the Windows 10 logon screen show password or PIN by default, but I would imagine if the "show" state is activated then the screen reader would read the characters you're typing rather than the standard "star" being repeated for each character as it's typed.   There is a button at the end of the password and PIN field that toggles visibility.   Check to see if yours is set to show (or visible) rather than hide (or invisible).

Hi,

Anyone is experiencing this:  At the log on screen, Win10 announces my password and pin instead of the “****”

Any suggestion?

Very much appreciated.

Re: Opopanax.net and Virtual Recorder

 

Thanks Gene.

Based on what both you and Mohamed have archived it appears that the latest version is 1.6.0.2712.

Here is Virtual Recorder portable.  It was already in my Dropbox account.  I don't know which version it is.

It was a site hosted by an individual and I don't know how likely it is that we will ever know why it disappeared.
 
I may have a portable version of the program.  I'll check.  I'm not sure which version it is.

I believe I sourced talking Windows PE files from Opopanax.net a couple of years back and all indications are that it was "the original source" for Virtual Recorder.   All indications are also that the site is no longer in existence, as I have not been able to reach it for days.

Just wondering if anyone knows when and why it shut down, and whether anyone has the portable ZIP file version and/or installer for Virtual Recorder.  I believe the latest version I can find reference to is 1.3.

Let's see what this does as far as the message footer is concerned.  I suspect that HTML is going to be maintained because the message being replied to was HTML, even though all its content was  excised from the reply before the first character of the reply was typed.
