I don't know what Cobra is.  I can say that in Firefox, there is a setting to stop the browser from refreshing.  I don't know what effect the setting has on structures such as carousels.  Nor do I know if what is going on has the same or a similar cause because I don't know what is being described as refreshing in today's message. 
 
If you use firefox, in the main window, press alt, then press t, wait a moment then o.
Tab once after waiting a moment.
down arrow to advanced.
If you get stuck partway down the list, up arrow then continue down again to get you unstuck.
Once you get to advanced, start tabbing.  You will see a check box about notifying you if Firefox is being redirected or refreshing a page.  That isn't the exact wording but it's there and my description should allow you to kno it.  Check the check box.  There is no ok button.  Continue using firefox now.  Or close it if you wish. 
 
You may find that you get one such message when a page wants to do something and nothing more during that session of working on the page. You don't have to worry about closing such messages.  They don't block anything and will be replaced automaticaally with future messages.
 
As far as commercial screen-readers are concerned, while they have features to stop refreshes, I don't know if they work in all cases.  I have found times in the past when the JAWS feature didn't work when confronted by some kinds of page refreshes.

Hello Davy,

I was told that "I was describing a way Firefox behaves on my machine",
and that if this had been a problem for more people than myself, there
would be ah uge number of messages on this (or soemthing to that ilk).

Clearly, this is an issue that NVDA should find a way of solving, one
way or another. This constant refiesching of webpages is nnoying, and
prevents one from working correctly.

Other screen readers have a way of blocking this, so it MUST be possible.

I'd hate to have to go back to commercial screen readers because of this

technology (Carousels, or whatever they call them).

Thanks for beinging this up again.
Hopefully, since there are now tro of us, someone will take a minute to

Re: Help me doing this

Hello,

I'm not too sure about what you are describing exactly, but here are some infos that could be useful.

- ctrl+alt+n only works with installed version of nvda, not with portables ones.

- to work in cmd, it is usually recommended to disable keyboard and word echo. When it is enabled, the result can be annoying, as it reads letters and words of output, and does skip the punctuation with the word reading.
If that is done, output should be spoken directly, and you can use review cursor, i.e. numpad with numlock off to browse through already displayedtext (assuming you are using desktop layout).

Re: Suggestion for upcoming NVDA build

 

hmmm snapshots are nightly builds, but I do aggree to some point I know there are softwares with options to update from the right channels.
Trouble is the only time we have betas and rc builds is just before release its not like they are in a big cycle.
As for snapshots, there is the master branch which is mostly stable and contains stuff for the next upcomming, experimental and then there are a couple below that.
Bar the master unless you are a dev I see no advantage tto users and it could give them issues.
I never download anything bar stable for myself.
It all depends though.
there was a tool called snapshot downloader but I don't know where it is or if it even works now.

How hard would it be from the official build, like in this case, 2016.1, to put an option in the NVDA menu, maybe under Tools, that automatically like downloading updates would let the user download and install the latest snapshot build rather than them having to go out to the web site and manually get it. Either that, or maybe under the General tab of preferences, where you have the box to check or uncheck for checking for updates, maybe have another one that says download snapshot builds when updating.

What do you all think?

Re: Any NVDA users using inbox.google.com

 

I agree inn theory as long as your client supports ssl or tls andd most of them if not all do it shouldn't matter.
I can remember when you had to buy ssl support and manualy email people that banned me from various sites and groups because I was blacklisted as a spammer.
I did ask if ssl was supported though this was when it was new, they didn't, yahoogroups was one such system.
They all support it now thank god but older clients that don't get updates to certifficates may have issues accessing things.

Re: skype going universal

 

Well I do use it and I like it.
There is no other way to chat without skype now.
And I am used to it, the desktop interface is mostly ok.
However according to ms skype support it will be a while before they quit using the thing.
I have heard that miranda can interface with skype, and if that is the case if it can run without skype I may try that, and also may uuse it instead.
The only big issue with skype is because I have so many capture devices, vertual and real mics and sound devices sometimes skype has issues finding the right device.
So then it will start, stop all sound and lock the system for 5 minutes while it tries to find out.
I got really angery at this a couple weeks back and thought that I'd just go and bash the computer or reformat it and then smash it but I went into the settings andd what do you know?
Every input device was set on a capture device which is part of a vertual recorder which isn't even supposed to be used and I was able to switch it to the right device and have it stay there by default and although I have updated it its never tried to scan again!

Re: Weird desktop messages?

I wouldn't go through the trouble of changing that setting until others indicate Whether it makes any difference.  I'm not saying this is the case, but I am not at all sure that the details setting has anything to do with how the desktop displays.  I doubt it.  Details is a view setting for how files are displayed in the list of files and folders in Windows Explorer.  There is no such setting for the desktop and I would think that the setting doesn't apply.

If that does not work hit the reset button to reset view, but you will

Re: danger, danger nvda

 

Well, I have a multipul installs of dotnet from 3.5 to 4.6 here on 7 win10 has 5 and does not run other versions.
v3.5 works on v2, and v4 on v3 the latest dotnets should work as far back as 2.
As for visual c, they shouldn't conflict as such because certain programs need certain libraries.
Now, my only wish would be that windows does what linux does.
The libs don't take up that much space but even so.
I'd prefur say you install something or try to do something.\
Say I want to run x program but its missing y z dll.
Windows is unable to start this program because *.dll is not loaded please reinstall.
To avoid this I load just about every library I can to stop that error.
It happens with codecs.
If I am using linux, I type in something to install, it says this needs such and such component, do you want to install it or it tells you what to do.
I have often installed programs for ssh and a few things on linux, and got messages like this program is not installed, or this program is part of another install for servers, or in deed, unable to start because this thing is missing.
However in linux you can then install it because it basically tells you what to install.
If ms would do the same at least with its libs then we wouldn't have this issue better still with linux it tells you what is needed, what could be nice, what is not but if you need it it would be nice or simply whatever.
In windows, I have slim dx, java latest, klite codec, visual c 2005sp1 2008sp1 2010 2012 2013 2015 2016 and their 64 bit equivilants.
On the subject of python, both 3x and 2x are still supported 2.7x is the version a lot of stuff uses however its a good point a lot of stuff has moved on from the older releases.

The proliferation of the famous Microsoft Visual C + + redistributable

Windows loads multiple instances of the d l l s and not all instances

causing untraceable bugs in nvda along with other programs like explorer
or the w10 file manager.
There doesn't seem to be backward compatibility say from visual c + +
2015 to earlier versions.
A second dangerous trend is the proliferation of multiple versions of
dot net frame work.
Again here no apparent backward compatibility seems to exists.
So one has his or her windows computer cluttered up with multiple
versions in most cases taking up hard drive real estate and causing
conflicts.
A lot of the nvda bugs possibly can be linked to miss matched
versions of d l l s being loaded by windows.
A third concern is the old version of python being used. If it's
time to upgrade from say visual c + + 2008 it should be time to update
to a newer version of python.
Shouldn't it?

* Moderator election: 4 yes, 7 no (moderators will be chosen by
leaders).



So far, two people have shown interest in becoming the next associate
moderator (one who'll take my seat): Doug and Stuart. As for the procedure
to be used by Nimer, it'll be up to him. Nimer and I are still looking for
candidates.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph


Suggestion for upcoming NVDA build

Christopher-Mark Gilland <clgilland07@...>
 


I was just thinking how cool of a feature this would be, and I'd not think it would be terribly hard either to implement.
 
How hard would it be from the official build, like in this case, 2016.1, to put an option in the NVDA menu, maybe under Tools, that automatically like downloading updates would let the user download and install the latest snapshot build rather than them having to go out to the web site and manually get it.  Either that, or maybe under the General tab of preferences, where you have the box to check or uncheck for checking for updates, maybe have another one that says download snapshot builds when updating.
 
What do you all think?
