Ive tried QCast, but it doesn't remember where i left off, and if it does, the slider to move back and forward gets stuck.

Hi Sam,

 

I am stumped. I doubt the microsoft Access add-in is causing your problems. I wonder, what else gets disabled when you go into safe mode?

 

In addition, what is hardware acceleration set too? Check this in the options dialogue. I can’t remember where the setting is. If it is enabled, disable it and see if this improves things.

Re: Do I need the Java Access Bridge? Re: [nvda] To the deaf blind person with browse mode issues..

The JAVA access bridge has no effect on what NVDA sees or does unless you are running an actual JAVA program.  Most people don't have the JAVA Access Bridge and it makes no difference.  Your problem is caused by something else.

fact that NVDA is having trouble detecting which window is active. it won't switch from a closed window to the active

Re: List of Utilities that Make Windows 10 More Like Windows 7

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

Its a shame that the tool does not offer a silent command line version so one can run it on boot up without it going on and off like a toggle. Then every time windows does a major update it could be installed. However this is a bit off topic for here.
I'd also like Windows 10 to have an ignore out of date software option for updates as there are a number of pieces of software that run fine but Windows hates and confines them to the old windows folders mucking up their install and usage paths in the process. This can be very annoying if its an email program like Outlook Express when they offer such a crippled one free by default.

A word of warning about the ribbon disabler though. If windows does a bit update it is turned off. Also some of the options to make all folders look like this one do not work correctly. Mind you they have a strange logic in windows 10 in any case so I guess this could be a Microsoft logic thing.
I also find Master Seeker a very nice way to find stuff in windows as its a good deal faster than the explorer system even on windows 7.

Hello Folks,

Let me start this off by saying that Windows 10 is great. I have no problems with it. However, some parts of it just aren't what they used to be. Here is a list of programs that make Windows 10 behave more like Windows 7.

Classic Shell:
Classic Shell gives you the old classic start menu, among other things.
http://www.classicshell.net/

Old Task Manager:
When I first updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the first thing that really irritated me was the new task manager. It was slow, cumbersome and annoying. So, I found a quick, easy and safe way to get it back. Just download the file, unzip it, run setup, and let it guide you through the steps. You should choose full installation, and uncheck the desktop icon check boxes when they come up. Also, once the task manager is installed, open it by pressing CTRL+Shift+escape. Next press alt and locate the "options" menu item. Press enter, and locate the "Hide When Minimized" option and uncheck it by pressing enter. Next, press alt again, and find the "View" subMenu. Press enter, and locate the "Update Speed" subMenu and press enter on it. Set this to normal by locating the menu item and pressing enter. That's it. You now have the classic task manager from Windows 7 in Windows 10.
http://www.noahcarver.com/files/tm_cfg_win8-win10.zip

UBitMenu (Not Tested Myself but have heard it works)
UBitMenu makes itself a new tab in your MS Office ribbon menu. Just activate this tab and you have the classic menus from MS Office 2003 in your up-to-date copy of MS Office.
Note: Although I have not tested this myself, other users have reported this works with NVDA.
http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/

Ribbon Disabler
Ribbon Disabler removes the ribbon tab from Windows Explorer, replacing it with the classic menu bar. Download the file, and unzip it. Next, look at the folder. If you are running a 64-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3 x64". If running a 32-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3". Once the program opens, click the button labeled "Disable Ribbon Explorer ". The program should ask you to log off. Do so, Next, log back on... and boom. To uninstall, just run the program you ran earlier. You will be presented with a button that says "Enable Ribbon Explorer". Click it. Again, you should be prompted to log off and back on. Your Windows Explorer should look normal again.

Re: NVDA and MS Office 365

 

Hmmm thats good to know.

I do have a fully licenced version of office xp so if I ever needed it I could use it but probably wouldn't.

Has anyone tried wps its chinese and came out in 1997.

There was 1, there is always 1 site claming that it is installed with extras and that its full of spyware and it should be removed and then you need to reformat the system to make sure its gone, but I havn't seen that happen.

From all accounts, the subscription which is 30 bucks a year gives you full access to office like programs for both pcs and mobile phones.

its 80 dollars for the pc full licence.

The only restriction is that for free users there is a mark placed on printed documents however unless you need to print things a lot it probably matters zilch.

I must say though the only time I had to use excell it was to open a bunch of excell files for some worksheet printing for my mum and I did that on my dads office cloud box and that was fine.

For just about everything else I use jarte pluss which is 35 dollars for lifetime use.

Even then I don't really use a word processer, as a tester, admin, and semi retired light hacker my work is with text files in notepad, reading a few document briefs in jarte, using adobe reader for pdfs, thunderbird for emails and loads on loads of web forms, servey sites, google forms and google documents and loads and loads of online reports through web portals and generaters.

Its been at least 15 years since I needed to touch a word document or an office file for real and to be brootally honest I don't miss it a bit.

Office XP word works on 10 for us, but apparently looks a bit strange to the sighted due to resolution issues. Xcel works the same but Access hangs and you have to use a runtime.

Well to be honest unless you use excell I use jarte pluss and that works.

office 2010 and 2007 are still supported offices and still use bits of the older interface.

I still have an old fully legal coppy of office xp but its not going to work on 10 is it, unless there is a way.

Then again jarte and the right converters are all I need I don't need the rest.

I have heard about wps office which is a 30 dollar subscription also a free one if you don't mind your documents being marked, you can also buy a lifetime licence for 1 pc for 80 dollars, the 30 per year subscription gives you smart phone access.

Aparently its been round since 1997 and is chinese owned but I am unsure if it is accessible or not.

Its still cheaper per system than ms office is to be honest though.

Where something like 365 does come in is if you have multiple devices, use onedrive and make a lot of skype calls.

There are subscriptions that will make it worth your while.

While I have not found out how to do it with dropbox google drive has a plugin for direct saving to google drive and I have installed it.

Pluss it appears ms office has a few free programs.

sway, todo, lens and one note are all free programs for just about everything.

A standard user only needs the home version which is only about 140 dollars.

The business versions have things like powerpoint publisher, access and outlook the home version is word powerpoint and excell which is about all everyone needs to be honest.

If you do work in a company there is the home use program and this is how the family bar me use to have office on their systems.

You can still buy Office 2016 as a standalone purchase (rather than Office
365 subscription). That works exactly the same as Office 365 for now - of
course when Office 2018 or whatever the next version is comes out, you
won't get that if you buy the full Office 2016, but in any case, NVDA works
with either variant.

In explorer, nothing is lost except what I mentioned about the quirky way make other folders of this type look like this one.
In Word, not tried that one myself as still using old word with conversion software as the new features are not things I need.

To be honest, I imagine the writters of the ribbon removers will have explored all the options.
I remember reading an article about it a couple of years back now.

I don't know if this is the case in any programs or parts of Windows discussed but are any features lost by reverting in this way? I don't use Word, but it is so differently organized in ribbon versions and there are so many settings that I can't help but wonder if access to some features or settings is lost. In Windows Explorer, I gather from the little I've read that there are new functions available and again, I wonder if any are lost. But if anything is lost anywhere, that should be discussed.

Re: List of Utilities that Make Windows 10 More Like Windows 7

 

Hmmm I have heard of a program called old new explorer but have had no experience with it.

I also know about ribbon disabler and windows update, every time I update I guess I need to rerun the tool, that sucks but its better than nothing I suppose.

I also find Master Seeker a very nice way to find stuff in windows as its a good deal faster than the explorer system even on windows 7.

Hello Folks,

Let me start this off by saying that Windows 10 is great. I have no problems with it. However, some parts of it just aren't what they used to be. Here is a list of programs that make Windows 10 behave more like Windows 7.

Classic Shell:
Classic Shell gives you the old classic start menu, among other things.
http://www.classicshell.net/

Old Task Manager:
When I first updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the first thing that really irritated me was the new task manager. It was slow, cumbersome and annoying. So, I found a quick, easy and safe way to get it back. Just download the file, unzip it, run setup, and let it guide you through the steps. You should choose full installation, and uncheck the desktop icon check boxes when they come up. Also, once the task manager is installed, open it by pressing CTRL+Shift+escape. Next press alt and locate the "options" menu item. Press enter, and locate the "Hide When Minimized" option and uncheck it by pressing enter. Next, press alt again, and find the "View" subMenu. Press enter, and locate the "Update Speed" subMenu and press enter on it. Set this to normal by locating the menu item and pressing enter. That's it. You now have the classic task manager from Windows 7 in Windows 10.
http://www.noahcarver.com/files/tm_cfg_win8-win10.zip

UBitMenu (Not Tested Myself but have heard it works)
UBitMenu makes itself a new tab in your MS Office ribbon menu. Just activate this tab and you have the classic menus from MS Office 2003 in your up-to-date copy of MS Office.
Note: Although I have not tested this myself, other users have reported this works with NVDA.
http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/

Ribbon Disabler
Ribbon Disabler removes the ribbon tab from Windows Explorer, replacing it with the classic menu bar. Download the file, and unzip it. Next, look at the folder. If you are running a 64-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3 x64". If running a 32-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3". Once the program opens, click the button labeled "Disable Ribbon Explorer ". The program should ask you to log off. Do so, Next, log back on... and boom. To uninstall, just run the program you ran earlier. You will be presented with a button that says "Enable Ribbon Explorer". Click it. Again, you should be prompted to log off and back on. Your Windows Explorer should look normal again.

Re: NVDA and MS Office 365

Office XP word works on 10 for us, but apparently looks a bit strange to the sighted due to resolution issues. Xcel works the same but Access hangs and you have to use a runtime.

Other bits I do not use but office tools canning seems to work.

Well to be honest unless you use excell I use jarte pluss and that works.

office 2010 and 2007 are still supported offices and still use bits of the older interface.

I still have an old fully legal coppy of office xp but its not going to work on 10 is it, unless there is a way.

Then again jarte and the right converters are all I need I don't need the rest.

I have heard about wps office which is a 30 dollar subscription also a free one if you don't mind your documents being marked, you can also buy a lifetime licence for 1 pc for 80 dollars, the 30 per year subscription gives you smart phone access.

Aparently its been round since 1997 and is chinese owned but I am unsure if it is accessible or not.

Its still cheaper per system than ms office is to be honest though.

Where something like 365 does come in is if you have multiple devices, use onedrive and make a lot of skype calls.

There are subscriptions that will make it worth your while.

While I have not found out how to do it with dropbox google drive has a plugin for direct saving to google drive and I have installed it.

Pluss it appears ms office has a few free programs.

sway, todo, lens and one note are all free programs for just about everything.

A standard user only needs the home version which is only about 140 dollars.

The business versions have things like powerpoint publisher, access and outlook the home version is word powerpoint and excell which is about all everyone needs to be honest.

If you do work in a company there is the home use program and this is how the family bar me use to have office on their systems.

You can still buy Office 2016 as a standalone purchase (rather than Office
365 subscription). That works exactly the same as Office 365 for now - of
course when Office 2018 or whatever the next version is comes out, you
won't get that if you buy the full Office 2016, but in any case, NVDA works
with either variant.

Re: An Amazon.co.uk. query

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

Did that already.
I'm suspicious my account has become corrupted. Since it only gives the last four digits of my card number it occurred to me that if this has been corrupted I'd not know at all.
it was working a month back.
So much for reliability.
I'm only guessing that add to basket might not show up if the account details are damaged. does anyone know if this is the case. I'd expect the option to be there but inoperable not missing altogether though.

I'm not exactly sure what you are talking about in regards to payment

options, but I've noticed that the add to, like add to cart or add to

the case of add to list then a dialogue box box pops up that I

generally just hit escape to get out of, or add to cart where you have

to hit the submit query (at least that is what it says for me) to add

to cart. Just a warning it doesn't make any noise or refresh the page

when I do this, I'm using latest version of firefox, but when I

refreshed the page and go to my cart it will show that I have 1 item

in there.

Re: An Amazon.co.uk. query

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

I did but its not there.
b wont work it says no other buttons and so nothing else works either.
I'm wondering if something has screwed up my account in some way, making something wrong so it won't add to a basket. I can see its got the right debit card listed but did not go further into my account than that. When you hit lists etc it says an error has occurred if this persists contact customer services. Not a great deal of use really. I'll have to leave it for now.
Maybe I need to remove myself completely and make me a new account. that would be a shame as there are historic orders in there that save a lot of time when you need to re order.

Try the following



In mozilla fire fox go to tools then down to add ons then press the enter

You might have to tab a couple of times, but you will be looking for a list.
here you can arrow up and down the list.



There are 2 sections one was check the extensions and also the plugins
section.



Go to the say add ons or extensions one then tab a couple of times. On both
of them you can disable the players from starting automatically.



so depending what you have it might be a html 5 player, flash player, shock
wave player. etc



You can always enable them again from there. But i think at present it will
only do it when i want it to.
