Hi,

Yes, almost there. NvDA 2017.2 will improve Edge support in numerous ways.

Hi there folks,

 

Is Microsoft Edge usable in the latest Windows 10? I would love to be able to get rid of extraneous software on the PC.

 

Thanks so long.

Re: Edge in latest Win 10?

Gene
 

Are you saying you want to get rid of other browsers and which ones?  Even if it works reasonably, I doubt it works as well as Firefox or Chrome and I question if it has any advantages that matter.  Browsers are becoming increasingly alike and Firefox has attachments and one feature in particular that some blind people may find useful. 
 
As far as eliminating software, worry about that is overmanagement, in my opinion.  Programs don't take a lot of disk space and a few more or less means nothing.  Indeed, at times uninstalling programs causes problems.  It's often better to just leave programs on the machine, even if they are not going to be used.  I've read discussions on another list about people who uninstalled Microsoft Word only to have serious problems because the uninstallation removed a component necessary for NVDA to function.  I uninstalled a trial speechpackage for Eloquence and another voice and it uninstalled a component necessary for Eloquence in general to work.  I did a system restore to solve the problem.  I often uninstall programs if I know I'm not goint to use them but I don't have a concern about leaving them on the machine either and I never uninstall programs unless I know that I have a way to revert such as system restore that is on and that restore points are available.

I don't think in Windows 10 that system restore is on by default
unfortunately.
I find it was a bit flakey on 10 anyway.
I'd be tempted to restore an old back up and try again. If its a major
update then it is usually possible to roll back to the old system. However
menues that do not read can be due to many rhings, often as simple as a DLL
used for accessibility not being registered with the system. Unfortunately
sfc /scannow seems not to rectify this problem when it happens.
I don't have access to ten as my machine blew up but in 7 a restore of an
old back up fixed it. Suspect? An update to an office product did the dirty
deed.

Re: Upgrading to Win 10

John Hedges
 

The upgrade authentication for your valid Windows 8.1 key works for anyone. Have a copy of this 25 digit key for backup during the upgrade.

 

I would consider obtaining the Media Creation Tool to make an ISO for your x64 or x86 system. You can then mount/open it and run setup. It is pretty easy after that. Some programs may need removing before the upgrade, if flagged not compatible.

 

To run the new Narrator, use Ctrl+Window+Enter key combination. You will need that on the initial settings screens. NVDA 2017.1 runs pretty well with 1703, but update to 2017.2 when available.

narator on creaors update

brian <sackriderbrian45@...>
 

I thought that I would let you all a couple of issues with narator on the creators update. First narator does not read the percentages when downloading in webie. Second narator does not read messages in thunderbird. When you go to your inbox and go in to a message and you press caps lock m narator just says not on explorable text. I called the microsoft dissibility line and reported theese 2 issues with narator. I was told that narator does not read programs outside of microsoft but they will pass on my feedback as They will have to write the scripts for more programs. I also ask them if they could make updates to work with screen readers to announce the updates as they come in.

Re: this NVDA error is driving me nuts!

Gene
 

There are very specific things, such as showing Cortana (spelling) results, that are done in Edge and Edge only.  There is no other restriction on what the default browser opens.  And there certainly isn't any behavior giving preference to Internet Explorer which is available but depricated.

Re: Email Client

Gene
 

That isn't correct.  Outlook Express has no spell checker and uses the Word spell checker.  Most e-mail programs do have spell checkers including Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail.  And in Outlook Express, beyond a certain version of Word, you can't use the Word spell checker in Outlook Express.  The last version where might have been Word 2003 or Word 2007 but the Word spell checker hasn't worked or worked properly with Outlook Express for years.
 
There are third party spell checkers you can use with Outlook Express.  I don't know how good they are.

I'm with everyone so far, but in different senses.

Thunderbird is indeed an excellent e-mail client overall and works
beautifully with NVDA and other screen readers.  One can teach basic use and
ignore all the bells and whistles not needed.  That being said, the less
sophisticated user can and often does get themselves into trouble by
fat-fingering something and triggering some function that they do not know
about, do not wish to trigger, and have no idea how to exit.  That is the
trouble with using a really full-featured e-mail client like Thunderbird.

I like Windows Live Mail 2012, and even though it's no longer officially
supported that is mostly because Microsoft decided to change their
proprietary access methods and did not wish to continue updating Windows
Live Mail.   It still serves perfectly well as a POP or IMAP e-mail client.
If you want to download a copy of the full offline installer for Microsoft
Essentials, of which Windows Live Mail is a part, it's on my Google Drive in
7-Zip format here.  I snagged a copy of the offline installer a couple of
weeks before Microsoft withdrew active support.

I have recently learned of another fairly simple email client, eM Client,
that looks quite good but I have not had a chance yet to evaluate it from an
accessibility standpoint.  The interface seems to be simpler than
Thunderbird's is, and that can be critical.   If you do evaluate this client
for accessibility please report back.

Re: this NVDA error is driving me nuts!

We'll see how this develops.  I've seen the same complaint once or twice before and I don't remember how or if it was resolved.  NVDA wouldn't be expected to have anything to do with the problem but I don't rule out the possibility of odd behavior when dealing with Windows and Windows programs in odd cases.  Very low probability things might occur very rarely.

If a program is configured to use a different browser, such as for example
the file hippo utility or Microsoft windows update in XP which will always
use Internet Explorer.

Occasionally, a particular web page can be configured to send a command to
another program, such as when it needs flash or something, but its not often
I've seen this re launch a different browser. Of course Itunes in Windows
has its own heap of rubbish  that accesses the internet as do other bits of

Hello again, I saw it in the setup of VMware Workstation 12 when upgrading, so I assumed a reinstall isn't necessary. However, it might in fact not be present in Fusion, in which case I must apologize for putting you on the wrong track.
Kind regards,
Felix

Hi,Can you tell me how to access this checkbox? Do I need to re-install VM ware Fusion, in order to access this checkbox? I didn't see it when I got setup.Thanks,Jessica

Hello Jessica and list,
I recall that during the installation of VMware there is a check box called "enhanced keyboard driver" or very similar. Can't check the exact wording right now as I'm away from all machines but my iPhone. It will require a restart but might solve your problem, if my intuition is correct.
Good luck,
Felix

Hi,
 
I’m using vM ware fusion, as a free trial, and I can’t press “insert+ N” for the NVDA menu.
Ive made other key combinations, but none of them work.
Also, on occasion, other keys, like “alt tab” won’t work.
 
How can I fix this?
 
I’ve updated my installation media, just in case.
 
Is telling the computer to boot from installation media accessible?
 
Thanks,
Jessica


Re: this NVDA error is driving me nuts!

 

What operating system and version of NVDA are you using, and that's for starters.  The web addresses that are giving the problems wouldn't hurt, either.

You've not provided enough information for an error like this to give guidance with any confidence.

this NVDA error is driving me nuts!

Hi NVDA user have tried to get an answer to this and nothing it is driving me crazy.  this morning while still using jaws before switching to NVDA I checked out an item on blind bargains.  I finished all I needed to finish, and now am on NVDA I went to that item on blind bargains again, wanting to review it one more time.  it was a primer on the windows 10 creaters update.  I’m going to call the microsoft answer desk in a moment and have some help with that update.  however when I clicked the link in the blind bargains email to read that item again instead of bringing up chrome to read the document, I see an error message Internet explorer is coming up saying address not valid this is NVDA any time I go to an item on a link in an email, close that down and do something else maybe on a different browser like firefox, then return to that previous thing it won’t bring up chrome which is my default. I get that not valid message and internet explorer is coming up with it.  internet explorer has nothing to do with it it’s not my default and this only happens on NVDA to correct this I have to reboot. why is NVDA not able to bring up my default browser after I have done something else somewhere else.  I’m going to have to either reboot to reread that item or do this blindly.  does anyone know why this happens.  internet explorer is my least used and least favorite browser and should have absolutely nothing to do with it.  and again it is an NVDA error.
