Re: Best Way To Remove Nvda And Do A Clean Install

Tyler Spivey
 

NVDA is in several parts.
The program can be removed with Programs and Features.

The user configuration won't be removed when the program is, and this confuses a lot of people. Do this:
1. From the Run dialog (Windows+r), type:

%appdata%

And press enter.
2. Find nvda in that directory and delete it.

It's best to do this when NVDA is not running.

If you just want to restore your user settings to factory defaults without addons, then deleting the configuration should be enough.

For gods sake man, he asked about nvda, not windows.

Removing nvda via the programs add/remove menu should work fine, just be sure to wipe out the directory where it stores all your custom configurations.

On my system, this is in the appdata\local\roaming\nvda

folder, under my user directory.  Yours may or may not be the same depending on various system settings.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

 

Yes, you can do that by typing “uninstall NVDA” into the search box, when you bring up the start menu.

 

I hope this helps.

NVDACon is only 1 day away! remember to join us!

Dear NVDA users, developers, and enthusiasts around the world!

I am Derek Riemer, the chair of NVDACon international.
The NVDA conference started out in 2014 so that users of the screen reader could connect and talk to other screen reader users.  Every year, we host a conference on NVDA, with topics to be presented by the NVDA community.
We are currently planning our 4th international, and sixth conference for the NVDA community. This conference will be held on May 19 through May 21 of 2017. Some of our presenters for this conference include NV Access, Google, Dictation bridge, and other NVDA community members. The overarching theme of NVDACon 2017 is engaging the NVDA community. I would like to encourage you to join us at NVDACon 2017. If you are a seasoned NVDA user who regularly chats with other NVDA users, come meet other NVDA users. If you are a novice NVDA user, we have open forums for you to ask any questions you might have.

We are excited for NVDACon 2017, and we hope you are excited too! Our new website is https://nvdacon.org, and you can follow us on twitter   @NVDACon.
Thank you
Derek

Little more than a day till NvDACon 2017 (spread the word and invite people to join us)

 

Hi all,

 

Want to experience the next revolution in screen reading technology? Want to have a chat with a community of NVDA users and developers? Want to meet the very gentlemen who brought NVDA to life eleven years ago? Then look no further: NVDACon 2017, the only conference for a screen reading solution organized by and for the community, is about to begin.

 

For new family members: NVDACon (NVDA Users and Developers Conference) is an annual online gathering of NVDA users, developers, enthusiasts, sponsors and supporters who come together for the purpose of sharing their expertise and plan NVDA’s future together. Started in 2014, this online meeting brings together some of the leaders in NVDA community and sponsors, including NV Access, Google and many others, with topic presentations ranging from NVDA’s future to translations, add-ons development, DictationBridge and many more. Plus, if you’ve been to last year’s NVDACon, you’ll remember that amazing keynote from NV Access (epic does not fully describe that legendary keynote session and the atmosphere of celebration of NVDA’s decade of service), and this year will be just as epic as last year.

 

Details:

 

  • Date: May 19-21, 2017
  • Time: varies
  • Place: NVDACon TeamTalk Conference Center
  • Keynote speakers: Michael Curran and James Teh (NV Access)
  • Features sponsors and presenters: Google, DictationBridge

 

More info about this gathering, as well as how to join us and the conference schedule can be found at:

https://www.nvdacon.org/

 

Let this conference change your life. Hope to see many of you at NVDACon 2017.

Sincerely,

Joseph S. Lee

Founding chair, NVDA Users and Developers Conference (2014-2016)

Advisor to the chair, NVDACon 2017 Organizing Committee

Re: Window-Eyes Tutorials and Transition

Gene
 

If done properly, there isn't that much for a lot of users to learn and what does need to be learned, doesn't necessarily transfer from Window-eyes.  First, the most important thing to know is that as long as you learn certain commands, and not many, such as read title bar and commands like read current line, read current character and other review commands, you can do much or most of what you did using Window-eyes, unless you are an advanced user and make important use of such things as the Mouse Pointer in Window-eyes.  But a lot or most of what typical users use aside from screen review, read title bar, and certain other screen-reader commands, are Windows commands and program commands. 
 
For learning how to use object navigation and flat review, the user should learn them from instructional material or the manual if the user learns from manuals. 
there is some more or less equivalence when using flat review but none for object navigation.  In either case, it's better to learn the NVDA commands and even when learning flat review, not trying to remember things by saying, this key in Window-eyes did this when moving the mouse pointer and this key moves you in the same way using flat review.  That's my opinion.  My opinion is that it makes far more sense to simply learn how to move in flat review and how to activate using NVDA key NVDA enter and how to route the mouse to the navigator object or to the flat review position.  There is little or no exact equivalence in procedure in NvDA..

I agree, but this is a, "Get writing!!," situation for those who are bilingual [in a manner of speaking] in both Window Eyes and NVDA.

I don't fit this category and based on what I think I know about the number of bodies involved in the "nuts and bolts" of NVDA the staffing is probably not available to do this in house any time soon.

Re: Window-Eyes Tutorials and Transition

 

Hi,

One possible route is a three-way merge – let people who are good with NVDA and JAWS talk to those who are good at JAWS and Window-Eyes so they can come up with something.

Cheers,

Joseph

Amen!

I will be here to help anyone coming from Window-Eyes to switch to NVDA for their screen reader. I hope this does become a great way to promote NVDA and get many more people acquainted with it.

Hi everyone.

 

Although I was never a Window-Eyes user, strictly NVDA, I feel that

providing material, similarly to how VFO provided some nice

transitional material to help transition to JAWS is a very good idea

for NVDA. This will be especially beneficial to those persons who are

using the Free for Office Edition. As there is a page on the wiki and

NVDACon, I hope this suggestion can come to reality, as there is a

good opportunity to extend NVDA's reach and popularity, as well as

reporting features and bugs.
