It's an entirely different animal from its early iterations.

Re: Windows 10 S

 

hmmm twit tv?

I never mentioned twit tv.

digitaldarragh.com/blog

thats the site.

If you get issues by typing twittv.com then you are mistyping things because you type to fast like I do or something screws up.

Twitter and soundcloud seem to have random non connection issues for the last 2 days.

So for certain things ie schools and universities it means a lot

on flash drives and the like are rampent.

For us users, I'd avoid windows 10 s unless ofcause I was doing it for
school or something.

I certainly wouldn't buy a laptop on that.

Its for lower end units, chances are if you wanted a serious unit and
were not at school if you got the entry level business units which is
where I am hitting at or business units then this will not be a problem
at all.

And even if you get an s system, chances are you can upgrade it in store
for extra stuff 50 us is not to bad for upgrade from a school unit if it
is a school unit and previding you don't need to hand it back.

However there is probably no chance a user could actually ever set up an
s system anyway.

Schools need to be registered to even set this up with a pro box first off.

Next even if you got that sort of box yourself well we will have to see.

I could see myself with an s tablet maybe for studdies etc who knows.

Windows 10 s will not run native win32 apps. The only apps it runs
are the ones in the Microsoft app store. This means that things like

I gather Microsoft are trying to do a google and making an operating

At the moment my only reason for mentioning it here is that as far as I

Re: Multi-User-Dungeons and NVDA

It's hard to believe because it's very inefficient.  You may hear twenty or thirty links and controls before the text actually begins.  With all the ways of using quick navigation. move by headings, skip blocks of links, using the search command, it is extremely inefficient to just let pages read.

Why is it hard to believe that I find it more efficient to read the entire web page than to waste time hunting for information that is on the screen somewhere I don't know where it is on the page? Yes, most of the time, I let it read from the top, until it gets to the content I want.  It's faster (I run the speech as fast as it will go), and all I need to do when I get hwere I want to be is to press the shift or control key depending on whether I want to resume again or not. 

On the other hand, I spend a lot of time reading, so allowing the page to autoload and read from top to bottom is exactly what's wanted, since that way I don't need to do anything to hear the text of the book.  It's the most efficient way of doing things (for me).  It only takes a few seconds to get past the header information (in most cases) and the other content I want is usually near the top of the page, though admittedly, if it's a site like paypal or shopgoodwill, I don't bother with the read to end, because there's no need for it, I just press pagedown the required number of times to get near the main content (or the area I want) and then use the arrows from there to get where I want to go.  I rarely have the need to navigate by headers or tables, or anything else, because after I've been on a site a few times, I'm already familiar with where things are, and if it's close to the top, it's faster to just let it read.

Thanks.

Most things such as web pages, emails, Word
documents, are static, in that the text just
appears once and you NVDA navigate to it using
the keyboard.

Theoretically, should NVDA have a mode where
it just reads everything on the page that
newly appears?

I suppose this only would apply to text games,
where text is dynamically appearing.

Re: NVDA URGENT PROBLEM

Pranav Lal
 

Hi all,


I can duplicate the issue with Excel. NVDA is ultra sluggish in Excel. I type a value into a cell and then hit enter or the right arrow and NVDA appears to lock up. There is no speech. I have to wait 2 to 3 minutes for speech to be restored. I can then type another value and then the process repeats. I was able to navigate the back stage view without problems. I am using Windows version 1703 (OS Build 15063.296)

 

I am running office 2016 and have the office 365 subscription.

The only reason automatic reading of the sort you describe occurs is because in some instances, NVDA automatically uses read to end when something opens.  You are using read to end in all of the examples you discuss.  But are you saying you let web pages read, link after link and whatever else is at the top of pages before articles begin?  It's hard to believe.  If not when you move to what you want to read, how do you read?

I suspect you need sighted help to run the tool.  I haven't checked but these sorts of tools usually have some protection so that malware can't develop ways to take advantage of them.  You may find a captcha when you work with the tool.

Re: Multi-User-Dungeons and NVDA

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Static or not, Chrome reads pages for me when they come up, thunderbird reads new messages as they come up, winrar reads filenames when I arrow to them, the dos prompt reads automatically, the ssh client I use reads automatically as well.  The only thing that doesn't read automatically (and I suppose I could fix that if it bothered me enough) is notepad when I open txt files using notepad.  Otherwise, I never use the screen review mode unless I need to see something that already went past, and in most cases, I only use that if I need to leave the speech cursor somewhere other than the active cursor location, for times when I need to type something and don't know how to spell it without looking.  90 percent of the time, I leave NVDA in object review mode, and NVDA speaks things automatically, and if I miss something, I simply move around the screen using the cursor navigation keys to get to things without ever leaving object review mode.

Thanks.

Most things such as web pages, emails, Word
documents, are static, in that the text just
appears once and you NVDA navigate to it using
the keyboard.

Theoretically, should NVDA have a mode where
it just reads everything on the page that
newly appears?

I suppose this only would apply to text games,
where text is dynamically appearing.

Note if you press CONTROL+SHIFT+ESCAPE and can't control+tab between panes, press alt+d to access "more details". (the same shortcut then becomes "fewer details" to get back to the original minimal view).
