Re: Suggestion: Switch from Email List to a Forum

 

No I like email but then I am at home a lot doing work.

WHat I find with forums is I only read what interests me which is fine but forums have the added issue of multiple spams they are harder to secure to.

Email and the skype group are enough but if people think we can do with a forum to go and try it.

The only one that worked is audiogames.net and even they have had hackers, spam and the like.

When I was doing work on sonnar we had a forum, I was removing spam and blocking users daily, eventually it got so bad I was doing it all day long.

Eventually after trying different forum software we just deleted the forum because it was to stressfull.

Re: NVDA Performance on Remote Access

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi Raghu


both computers must have a copy of nvda on them and they both will have to have the nvda remote add on installed. If you go down this track make sure you grab the latest version of the add on as it also has braille support etc.


Otherwise it works well. I use it a bit to help out others who have nvda installed plus the add on if asked.

Do both machines need to have NVDA running during remote access?

Hoping your answers.

I agree as well.  I would prefer to stay with the email list as well, I personally find it much easier.

Don't think so. Heat forms. Don't like anything that makes me go to the web when I can get it in my email. All it requires is for people to have a little bit of discipline and keep threads on topic. Much more efficient this way in my opinion.

Re: I am interested in programming for NVDA

 

Hi Stephanie,

Thanks for your interest in making NVDA better through coding.

I see that you have limited programming experience. Can you tell us which programming language you are familiar with? Or, for that matter, do you have any experience with Python? I ask these so I and other developers can tailor the answers to your needs.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: running nvda in admin mode?

I actually don't. Is there a way I can do this from the run dialogue just once then I can revert with just the normal nvda command? I was going to ask on the developers list but I seem to have ben removed. I'm using the latest and gratest snap.

Take care

Tha's how the developer got the accessibility to work, they ran nvda in admin mode.. I'll try and find the email or you can email xsplit and ask them if this can be changed so it works in regular mode, what ever that's called.

Can you get / provide more information about what works better when running in Admin mode?  You really shouldn't run programs as administrator for the most part.  The only thing I'm aware of which would work better if NVDA was running as administrator is when running a portable copy of NVDA and accessing other programs which are running with administrator privileges, or secure Windows screens such as the UAC dialog. 

Is Xsplit running with admin privileges?

You can run a program as administrator by pressing the windows key, typing the name (NVDA for instance) pressing the applications key to bring up the context menu and choosing "Run as administrator"

I'm struggling a bit with this. I seem to keep finding edit areas which seem not to be. Has anyone got an Echo or dot and has used this app extensively in windows? I have added a podcast player and a couple of other things but thus far things like calendars and more comprehensive skills normally end in my losing the link to what I'm trying to do somewhere.
Is it me, or is this web page a little quirky?

Re: Future of NVDA

 

Well when I do a fixit job I never give a time, I do a how long can you last if you had to with your computer away for sort of thing.

If they say a day or it needs to be done, I'll bust my gut to do it and get it running.

But if not, I usually clear it, scan it, fix it, update it, fix issues and then may get down to a todo pile of things the user wants.

I just fixed a system last week full of spyware, unable to update with no sounds and mangled drivers, as well as other issues.

So I cleared the spyware, reinstalled the drivers, recreated the user account, and replaced a faulty wireless card which was the issue.

But the user gave me a week so I was able to load extra updates right up to the day it was picked up and diagnose some issues with the mail system and set a cloud access point.

The worst jobs I had were when security software that luckily was free, took out a system and they needed it like immediately.

So guess who was up all night fixing it.

And guess what happened later on, I missed something or 2, lots of issues.

The other time, a system had got loaded with spyware and such.

Clearing the spyware and cleaning the system took seconds, but fixing the dammage took me 3 days to handle.

There wasn't the time to backup the files, do a reformat, and reinstall from backups and drives.

There wasn't time to reinstall anything.

I spent 2 days finding a tool to fix the dammage, and once that was done, well it was done.

The worse culprits though are the older systems especially the ones with weird hardware configurations, but most newer systems have standardised stuff so its reasonably easy.

Unless you have to use the hp support assistant, nothing against that but the program takes ages to update anything, I have downloaded and updated the software on the hp system my aunt has in minutes without the hp support assistant which took 5 hours for a reasonably sized software from download to install.
