NVDA doesn't save voice settings when closed

Gene
 

I'll provide a posssible solution to your problem.  I changed the subject line because it is the same subject line as the previous thread. 
 
NVDA is set, by default to save any changed setting when it closes. For some reason, yours isn't.  This may be because you changed an NVDA setting or it may be some other problem.  After you change the settings, use the command NVDA key control c to save the settings.  You would do this after you activate the ok button.  Then, see what happens when you close and run NVDA again.

Personally, I think the sleep mode works better

because if you move to another window wile Kurzweil 1000 is still running, nvda comes back without haveng to turn speach mode on.

Hi, is there a way to silence nvda while using an independent speech program like Kurzweil 1000? That way I don’t have two eloquence synths going at once? Which is kind of psychedelic sounding but not very productive.

Please start a new thread when starting a new topic.  Don't just reply to a message, change the subject line, and leave all the extraneous completely unrelated material below the message.  The reason I say to start a new message rather than just change the subject line is because if you do that, for technical reasons I don't know, in the archives the message is still placed in the old thread.  I don't know what happens if people read mail on their machines by conversation.

Also, if there is an error message from Windows related to Kurzweil such as a crash message, it will be read.  And, as I said in an earlier message, you can't use the numpad with Kurzweil if you use the speech toggle.

The speech mode toggle has NVDA running but without speech.  therefore, the numpad keys are still used by NVDA.  If you want to use NVDA with the numpad, you have to use the sleep feature.

Hi Jacob, the following works for me:

On desktop, de-select all icons with control+space. Press application key, go to "sort by" and choose "name." This puts my user folder at the top. If it doesn't work the first time, repeat the process, which should reverse the process.

As in, I know can play around with turning on/off grid view,
auto-arrange, etc. via context menu on desktop area, and, can turn
on/off some system icons via desktop display settings, but, when it
comes down to trying to reorder icons in a certain order, unless I
tried renaming all of them one at a time, and hoping auto-arrange
would cooperate, am not sure what the simplest way to handle this is,
and, if it's really possible without sighted help anyway?

Suppose could otherwise also try out drag-and-drop, working with
golden cursor add-on, but, thought may as well first ask.

And, yes, this is not of major importance, but, was just

One way to do it is this. Go to the desk top. Shut down NVDA once you hit K for kurtzwell Once it’s gone. then hit enter and Kirtzwell will start. Usually If I use Jaws it will not talk when I use Kirtzwell

Hello.

Another very accessible Internet speed test is from Comcast

http://speedtest.xfinity.com

speedtest.xfinity.com

XFINITY Speed Test tests your Internet connection speed.

When using this with NVDA, you'll receive the most accessible experience when using Firefox. You don't need to be a Comcast subscriber in order to use it. No account creation is required. Just open the link and look for the button to begin the test. I think that the accessibility will delight you.

Thanks. I wanted a website that would do both Canada and the United states. I don’t think concast would allow Canadians to use the site. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hello.

Another very accessible Internet speed test is from Comcast

http://speedtest.xfinity.com

speedtest.xfinity.com

XFINITY Speed Test tests your Internet connection speed.

When using this with NVDA, you'll receive the most accessible experience when using Firefox. You don't need to be a Comcast subscriber in order to use it. No account creation is required. Just open the link and look for the button to begin the test. I think that the accessibility will delight you.

Hello Arlene.

 

There are a few I know of that are pretty simple and easy to use.

One is

www.fast.com

and the other one is

www.speedtest.net

Bandwidth test where one can choose among hundreds of geographically dispersed servers around the world. Also shows a summary of one's tests and also the tests by ...

I hope this helps you.

Arlene,

You may be correct. However, if you have the time and/or the interest I'd be curious to know if the speed test works for Canadian users.

If you decide to try it, would you let me know?

David
