Re: A couple of small annoyances.

Dear Brian's Mail List Acct., Max & List:

Windows 10 has three settings concerning the selection of default programs":
Default Programs, Default Apps and select Default Program by File Type

You want too set each and every one of these to your preferred browser to
avoid Edge showing up when you need a browser.
The file extensions you want to change are: HTTP PDF as well as any other
file type with Edge set as the default browser.
Upon making these changes, and saving your changes, Edge should be out of
your life until Microsoft does something to make it reappear.

Noticed my "g" key was not inserting this letter. Found that somehow my Game
Bar settings had been set to use this key as a hot key to start/stop the
gaming features.

I think, generally in windows 10 there are some places where Edge is used no
matter what you do, but I believe that you need to actually do as you always
could and set up default programs for certain file types, but the old way of
letting a browser do it on its own never did work in 10, at least for me, I
always had to go to the list of file types and select a default program
if it was set as a Microsoft one. another reason I prefer windows 7.

Source seems to be the only word of that general pronunciation that it
messed up. It does alright with horse. As my last message I found that
edge is still my default browser. Short between the head sets. Chrome
a big button labeled make this your default browser but Microsoft must
written an override. How do I make chrome the default browser?

Screen-reader designers shouldn't make editorial decisions about what a
screen-reader reads that a program displays. Unless this content isn't
seen by sighted people, Windows should read it.
The is pronounciation of source is the result of the synthesizer you are
using and not NVDA. Are you saying it mispronounces that sound in
or just in the word source?

I recognize that these are small things that the developers may not think
are important enough to fix. Here goes anyway. When I am opening a file
in word I press control O and then tab twice. Nvda says recently opened
files. You haven't opened any files recently. This was not unexpected
first time I opened a file after installing nvda. However, I use word
every day and the message continue. At first it was a laugh, then a
and now it's I wish it wouldn't do that. Another thing is the
pronunciation of s o u r c e. In the united states source rhymes with
horse not with farce as nvda pronounces it. I have tried to fix it in the
dictionary but when I replace the h in horse with an s it goes back to the
rhyme with farce. Well, I guess that's just the way it is.
