Re: Piriform Recuva,v1.53.1087 recovering folders using nvda?

 

Well I had a few drives that failed all at once.
I was able to recover all the file names but not the contents.
While the majority of files could be transfered, as well as some stuff locally stored, the fact was that most of the data was gone.
Even after recovering from another less failing but still dammaged drive, I still lost a couple unimportant folders.
It was better than what I lost origionally but still.

does when you move a file, it merely changes the fat so the same file
locations are pointed to by an entry in that new folder. Obviously until
its been recovered every write you do including nothing at all runs the
risk of corrupting the files so its best to just restore them to
anywhere then fiddle with them later. Another word of warning is that if
they are dlls or other system files they lose their registration even if
you eventually put them back where they were.

Re: Bug. Can you confirm? NVDA can't read google chrome settings for extensions

Simone Dal Maso
 

Hello Gene,
yes, the description is just what I discover be inaccessible with NVDA and other screen reader.
I made a report using feedback functionality in Chrome, I hope someone on Google will read it.
For now, it is impossible to use that.
Grrrr!

I'd have to read the article again to try to understand what else was
said more clearly. there was an extension for this purpose but it has
been removed from the Chrome Store or Google Store, whatever it's
called. Mention is made of something evidently being removed starting
with version 53 but I'm not sure what.
It could be another way to do this but I'm not sure if it was clearly
stated in the article.

I doubt this is an NVDA problem. Do you have another screen-reader such
as JAWS? I doubt another screen-reader would read the page either.
Even after all these years, Chrome still is not fully accessible though,
it's mostly accessible.

Hello,
I'd like to have some hints or just a confirmation that NVDA has the
following problem:
open google chrome.
- go into address bar and type:
chrome://extensions/

You have the extensions page. Go to the bottom of the page and you
should find a link called "short keys", I don't know in english, in
italian is Scorciatoie da tastiera, anyway it is a page that allow you
to assigng a keyboard shortcut to activate an extension.
Just to make an example, if you are using hoxx vpn extension, you can
decide to activate it with a ctrl-shift-h, instead of going into
toolbar, than search extensions, right lick, etc etc.
You can define hotkeys for your extensions!

The little problem is that NVDA is not able to read that page.
Absolutely nothing.
Can you give a try and tell me if you have the same problem?

If yes, I will open a ticket about that.

Hi Quirk,

Be forewarned and check to see if your provider allows binary downloads.

I still use them because they are so simple and text based. There are still some active ones and you can always filter spam. The one I'm using is still Outlook Express. Maybe not ideal , but good enough for text stuff, not binaries.

Heh, interestingly enough, wikipedia has a page specifically for nntp
readers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Usenet_newsreaders

I don't know which ones (if any) are accessible, but that might be a
good starting point.

I've never used nntp on windows, only on linux/unix, and I've used
programs like trn and nn, and (in a pinch pine). There is a windows
version of pine (now called alpine) which works fairly well, and it can
handle nntp servers, so that may be an option if you absolutely can't
find anything else. I've not delved into the usenet groups for many
many years, but I sure do miss them, perhaps this will give me the
insentive to get involved with them again. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

ok, I suppose it is not a NVDA problem, but someone should open a

I tried with NVDA, Jaws, Narrator and yes, also ChromeVox!
Nobody can read absolutely nothing.

And if Chromevox is not able to read Chrome content... ok that
ChromeVox is not able to read the menu bar of Chrome, that is quite
silly, but it is not a NVDA issue.
Anyway I think I will open a ticket on NVDA community, then NVDA

Re: Master Branch Versions of NVDA

Each of the snaps has its own update, ie you will not be able to go back to the normal version automatically you will have to download it and install it over the master or next branch manually.
I notice also that when you attempt to put anything like master over next or stable release over a newer master it warns it might not be a good idea.

I believe on the snap pages there are links to change logs. However there are whats news in snaps with basic info.

There is a command to run it in Windows 10 but someone can discuss that.  I don't use Windows 10 and the command may have changed.  But in all versions of Windows, this method will work:
Press and hold the Windows key.  While doing so type the letter r.  Then after waiting a moment, type narrator and press enter.  Narrator will run.

There is more than one way to make a portable copy of NVDA.  Here is one way.  I am assuming that NVDA is already installed on your machine. 

 

Major new steps start on new lines.

 

First, create a folder in which you want to install NVDA.

Then, while NVDA is running, open the NvDA menu with NVDA key n.

Down arrow to tools.

Press enter.  You are now in a submenu. 

Down arrow to create portable copy and press enter.

You are now in a dialog.

Tab to the browse button and press enter.

If you don't know how to work with the dialog you are now in, ask here.

Open the folder you have created to place NVDA in.

Then continue to make the portable copy.  Look around the dialog and if you have questions, ask here.

Once yu have made the portable copy, copy the folder you created onto the thumb drive.

Or cut it to the thumb drive, whichever you wish.

To run NVDA from the thumb drive, connect the thumb drive to the machine you want to run it on.  Have Narrator running before you connect the thumb drive.  If you don't know how to run Narrator, ask here.

Once Narrator is running, find the folder that contains NVDA on the thumb drive.  Open the folder.

Look for NVDA.exe and press enter.  You will probably just here nvda but not exe. 

NVDA will run.  I don't know if you will be asked anything first such as if you want to run the file.  I don't think so. 

Then close Narrator.  It will cause no problem to have NVDA and Narrator running simultaneously so close Narrator and continue running NVDA.

Sadly its not been updated in ages and there havn't been any new user created clocks for a while.

Re: Master Branch Versions of NVDA

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi Sam
master snapshots only do from master to master but at some time the master every 3 months then becomes a RC release then after that the release you see. for example nvda 2017.1
I just downloaded a master snapshot and had a look under the whats new section and copied this out of it.
Is this what you want to see is below.
What's New in NVDA
2017.2
New Features
• Cell border information can now be reported in Microsoft Excel by using `NVDA+f`. (#3044)
• Added support for aria-current attributes. (#6358)
• Support automatic language switching in Microsoft Edge. (#6852)
Bug Fixes
• Web page menu items (menu item checkbox's and radio buttons) can now be activated while in browse mode. (#6735)
• Excel sheet name reporting is now translated. (#6848)
• Pressing ESC while the configuration profile "Confirm Deletion" prompt is active now dismisses the dialog. (#6851)
• Fix some crashes in Mozilla Firefox and other Gecko applications where the multi-process feature is enabled. (#6885)
• Reporting of the background color in screen review is now more accurate when text was drawn with a transparant background (#6467)
• Improved support for aria-describedby in Internet Explorer 11, including support within iframes and when multiple IDs are provided. (#5784)
• In the Windows Creaters Update, NVDA's audio ducking again works as in previous Windows releases (I.e. Duck with speech and sounds, always duck, and no ducking are all available). (#6933)
• NVDA will no longer fail to navigate to or report certain (UIA) controls where a keyboard shortcut is not defined. (#6779)
• Two empty spaces are no longer added in keyboard shortcut information for certain (UIA) controls. (#6790)
Changes for Developers
• Commandline arguments are now processed with Python's argparser module, rather than optparser. This allows certain options such as -r and -q to be handled exclusively. (#6865)
• core.callLater now queues the callback to NVDA's main queue after the given delay, rather than waking the core and executing it directly. This stops possible freezes due to the core accidentally going to sleep after processing a callback, in the midle of a modal call such as the desplaying of a message box. (#6797)
There will be more added to the master in the next month or so.


By the way for my snapshots of the master i created a directory called master snapshots put all the files into it then created a shortcut on the desk top but i use the ALT key + CTRL key + the letter M for master snapshots.

but also run a stable version of NVDA which is nvda 2017.1

I like trying out the new features then at times write or record a tutorial using those features.

A few questions Please.

 

  1. When the next release comes out will the update feature move me to the released version or only update me with in the Master next version?
  2. Is there a change doc so we can see when an update happens in the Master branch what has changed?

Thanks so much,

Re: Master Branch Versions of NVDA

Hi Gene,

 

When I go to the what’s new I get:

 

What's New in NVDA

2017.2

 

I think that means it’s since the latest release not the changes in the Master Branch. I am interested in the several master updates I have upgraded to since the main 17.2 release.


Second: So the auto-update will update from a master branch version to the latest release?

 

Thanks,

Sam

Re: Bug. Can you confirm? NVDA can't read google chrome settings for extensions

Gene
 

Here is an article that discusses how to assign shortcuts by using the Chrome extensions dialog. 
I'd have to read the article again to try to understand what else was said more clearly.  there was an extension for this purpose but it has been removed from the Chrome Store or Google Store, whatever it's called. Mention is made of something evidently being removed starting with version 53 but I'm not sure what.   
It could be another way to do this but I'm not sure if it was clearly stated in the article.

I doubt this is an NVDA problem.  Do you have another screen-reader such as JAWS?  I doubt another screen-reader would read the page either.  Even after all these years, Chrome still is not fully accessible though, it's mostly accessible.

Subject: [nvda] Bug. Can you confirm? NVDA can't read google chrome settings for extensions

Hello,
I'd like to have some hints or just a confirmation that NVDA has the
following problem:
open google chrome.
- go into address bar and type:
chrome://extensions/

You have the extensions page. Go to the bottom of the page and you
should find a link called "short keys", I don't know in english, in
italian is Scorciatoie da tastiera, anyway it is a page that allow you
to assigng a keyboard shortcut to activate an extension.
Just to make an example, if you are using hoxx vpn extension, you can
decide to activate it with a ctrl-shift-h, instead of going into
toolbar, than search extensions, right lick, etc etc.
You can define hotkeys for your extensions!

The little problem is that NVDA is not able to read that page.
Absolutely nothing.
Can you give a try and tell me if you have the same problem?

If yes, I will open a ticket about that.
