Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

I sometimes think this tends to happen on laptops due to their slower cpus to save power when things get busy. the UIA interface seems slow on many machines and we have no way to know if narrator is actually doing something internal to get around this problem. Often making idle rates on processors to be less slow can speed things up a lot. Task manager etc, do refresh quite often and one supposes anyting monitoring resources will also.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor


Hello,
on several Win 10 machines I find that NVDA gets very sluggish when task
manager or resource monitor has focus. At first I thought it was because
the machines were slow anyway at that time, which is why I used these tools
in the first place, but I tested again in good times, that is, while
everything else was running smoothly, and I consistently get the same
sluggish behavior across multiple machines.
I also tested with Narrator and found it very responsive. So NVDA
definitely has some causal involvement here.
Any ideas/workarounds, anyone? Thank you very much in advance.
Kind regards,
Felix


Re: Disabling png attachments in Mail app for windows 10

Mostly you find them as sig files on emails so it looks reallycuel to the sighted, but I just ignore them, if a person wants to be flash its up to them.
The worst things I've been encountering lately is some kind of emails generated by webkit where most of the first few pages is formatting and apple specific links and codes that mean nothing to an email client not running on an apple device. I'm sure it can be turned off by the sender, but they just don't seem to care.

Pauline,

PNG is short for Portable Network Graphics ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Network_Graphics ) , one of many types of image files.

I have no idea if there's a way to block them as an attachment and it would be relatively unusual to do so, since image files are one of the most frequently attached regardless of their file format.

Is there any reason you want to use the VLC player? For straight listening, I much prefer Winamp and Winamp will probably play things in order.

As far as Windows media Player is concerned, it has a remarkably good rapid listening feature that allows you to speed up speech while leaving the pitch constant. It is much better than the one you can use with Winamp or the one in VLC Player.

Holger,

You need to change your default app for Music Player. If you hit the WinKey and immediately type "default app" the Default app settings pane should be the first thing returned in the results. Open that and then find "Music Player" and change it from Windows Media Player to VLC.

I would check to make sure the files are numbered correctly and I would also check any settings such as shuffle to make sure they are off. I don't think the procedure given in the below message will work better than the other procedures described in the original message. They are just different ways of doing the same thing. You can try the procedure given, but I think the problem may be in the numbering or in some setting in the program.

Then you should be able to accomplish this after you've opened VLC by:

1. Hitting CTRL+F to open the "Select Folder" dialog.

2. Navigate to the folder that contains the entire book's folder, select the book's folder in the dialog.

3. Activate the "Select Folder" button at the bottom of the dialog.

4. All chapters of the book should load into the play list area and begin playing with the first chapter (that is provided the chapter media files are numbered correctly, and I have little doubt that they are).

Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

Hello

I can confirm Felix's issue. I also find Task Manager so sluggish with NVDA that I first close NVDA and fire up Narrator when it is necessary to use Task Manager.

The same behaviour is true also in the activation dialogue in DBT (Duxbury).

Re: VLC player app and W10

Gene
 

I would use it if I didn't want to install various codecs to use with another player for movies.  But for just listening to straight audio, such as Mp3 files, Winamp is more intuitive.  Left and right arrow moves you back and forward.  You don't use control left and right arrow as in VLC Player.  Preferences works better, at least with NVDA and I suspect with other screen-readers as well.  If I want to change something in preferences, I often change it and then I have to tab and shift tab to hear what the field now says.  I don't know how jump to time works in VLC Player.  In Winamp, you type control j, enter a time, and press enter.  I submit that one reason Winamp is still used so widely by blind people is for reasons such as I've discussed.  There is no reason to only use one program in all sorts of areas.  You often get benefits by using more than one program such as a player or a browser or a screen-reader.

I don't have Windows 10 but it works according to discussions I've seen. 
 
As far as where to get it, one place is
there is a link that says Downloads on the page.

Yes. I agree. I like Winamp but can not find it to get it. Does it work for W10?

Winamp is easier and more intuitive.  And I can get to play things in proper order.
 
I have VLC Player in case I want it to play something Winamp can't, but I almost never use it.

Is there any reason you want to use the VLC player?  For straight listening, I much prefer Winamp and Winamp will probably play things in order.
 
As far as Windows media Player is concerned, it has a remarkably good rapid listening feature that allows you to speed up speech while leaving the pitch constant.  It is much better than the one you can use with Winamp or the one in VLC Player.

Yes. I know but I like VLC instead of WM player. I was hoping someone knew how to fix this. In the old VLC there was a setting that I could go to check something to make sure so it will play in order.

Holger,

          You need to change your default app for Music Player.  If you hit the WinKey and immediately type "default app" the Default app settings pane should be the first thing returned in the results.  Open that and then find "Music Player" and change it from Windows Media Player to VLC.
