Re: OT: Thunderbird closing itself when you press the escape key - seems solved by latest win 10 essentials add-on

Jacob Kruger
 

Really not sure myself, but, definitely seems to have made a slight difference - as in, yes, have had thunderbird close itself like once since after I installed the latest win10 app essentials, but, for example, just tried it out again, and it behaved like it had been up to a point a while ago, before it started consistently just closing thunderbird - as in, it just closed the message window had been reading, but, reverted back to message listing, whereas up until yesterday afternoon, it was pretty much closing thunderbird down every single time I hit escape from either a mail reading window, or the message list itself.

Think it's either due to a recent update, or, suppose possibly something else, but, when press escape key, to even just close a message that am reading in thunderbird, the main window closes as well.


This is with message pane turned off, so the messages open up in new/separate windows, and, haven't recently installed any new/additional add-ons for thunderbird, but, it's really rather irritiating when you then have to reopen thunderbird, and, find the last message you were reading again.


One work-around is to in fact use alt+F4, or even ctrl+F4/W to close the message windows, but, over the years you get used to a form of standard behaviour, and, then it changes like this...LOL!


Anyway, is there something I am missing, or can someone suggest a way to try fix this - and, yes, know it's not directly NVDA realted, but, just thought would ask here in any case, since don't know where else to ask at moment.

Re: Important notice: Blind Extra add-on is hereby blacklisted for all eternity due to security implications

 

Its a pitty people use their software skills for this stuff.
I myself am always looking for things that help people rather than the other way round.
My idea for something like this would be a service you would have to pay yearly where, you had something that monitered certain events the user did and programs, ie drivers, updates, errors, etc.
You would get a way to log things aults, with qualified support people, or queary things, ie you found a program which you had to pay for, but wanted to see if there was an alternit program, someone could active search for it and say what it was.
Goes without saying there would be reviews of things on the website.
Ofcause it goes without saying you would have free and opensource first, then low to medium, to high cost comercial software.
There would be some sort of point system to like a store club card, buying certain things got you so many points.
Maybe small orders of things could be allowed within certain grounds, bigger ones would cost the user a bit.
You could potentially buy things like extra hardware software, etc.
You would have to have local distribution points for things like batteries and such though.
Something complex that could do everything from checking the weather, update your software, or if someone had a crash or there was something happening which didn't work right you could get an email with it and or have them handle it for a charge.
Something like that would really rock.
Its to complex for me to write and I am not a business man.
But if someone did something like that, combined with password manager, file encription data and cloud storage, websites etc depending what it was who knows something I'd like to work with.
I can't make that myself.
What is sad is that the current addon is semi loosly based on a system like that.
Another thing I have always wandered with is getting ransomware to work for you, have the root user system within windows no uac just password.
Ie you go away and do whatever, you could try to access something say a user tries to modify things or you had something go nuts, you could get a message, about your files bbeing encripted and the reason why, to unlock you would have to enter a password.
Ofcause you would have to get some way to get that password if you were admin, etc.

Subject: [nvda] Unified English Braille Table Improvement

Hello,


Earlier this year I requested certain improvements to the Unified English Braille table in NVDA,which showed some inconsistencies to me when I was reading with my Braille Display. Joseph made a master build which I used for a little while, but it's now very outdated and there was also an error which caused NVDA and my entire computer to freeze while I was writing. I am hoping to make use of my Braille Display again in the future, but I need an up-to-date master version with the Braille Table improvements I mentioned at first, plus any others that may have been implemented in such builds since I first brought this up back in March.


If I could be pointed to the appropriate build, I would sincerely appreciate it. I have had eleven years to get used to UEB and now I no longer feel comfortable with any other system, but some characters display very strangely in current NVDA and it's very jarring when reading.








WinTenApps 16.11.1 released

 

Hi everyone,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials version 16.11.1 is now available. For those using latest stable build (14393) and have updated apps such as Windows Store and Skype Preview, please go ahead and use the new version, as it provides support for new app releases.

The add-on can be found at:

https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/tag/16.11.1

 

Cheers,

Joseph

the RCA cambio tablet has a physical keyboard with a physical docking station.

and i believe the nextbook also has a physical keyboard with physical docking station as well. so if you dock the tablet you should be able to press windows enter to turn on narrator.

More generally regarding translation tables, have various Unicode characters
such as list bullets, dashes, etc., been defined so they'll be displayed
reasonably, rather than as "\x" followed by a hexadecimal number?

I know this is really a liblouis responsibility rather than an NVDA one.

More generally regarding translation tables, have various Unicode characters
such as list bullets, dashes, etc., been defined so they'll be displayed
reasonably, rather than as "\x" followed by a hexadecimal number?

I know this is really a liblouis responsibility rather than an NVDA one.

Hi,
It'll land as part of 2016.4. The latest master snapshots do contain UEB improvements.
Cheers,
Joseph

Subject: [nvda] Unified English Braille Table Improvement

Hello,


Earlier this year I requested certain improvements to the Unified English Braille table in NVDA,which showed some inconsistencies to me when I was reading with my Braille Display. Joseph made a master build which I used for a little while, but it's now very outdated and there was also an error which caused NVDA and my entire computer to freeze while I was writing. I am hoping to make use of my Braille Display again in the future, but I need an up-to-date master version with the Braille Table improvements I mentioned at first, plus any others that may have been implemented in such builds since I first brought this up back in March.


If I could be pointed to the appropriate build, I would sincerely appreciate it. I have had eleven years to get used to UEB and now I no longer feel comfortable with any other system, but some characters display very strangely in current NVDA and it's very jarring when reading.
