Re: Why is installing an addon on firefox such a nightmare!

Gene
 

There is a signed version of Webvisum that will work with the current version of Firefox.  I don't have the address for downloading it but it went through the signing procedure by James Scholes, (spelling) and he is a trusted person.  So the file is safe to use and has not been laced with malware.  You can read about it on the blind bargains site.  And information about the download link and how to install it is given there as well.

Re: Basic Training for NVDA - Official NVDA training material now available!

 

Hi,

thanks for the fast reply. With this training material, I think trying to promote NVDA in a country like Thailand where most visually-impaired users still use Jaws should be easier as they would at least know there is a reliable training material to refer to, albeit in English, which may pose a problem for visually-impaired Thais who can't understand English well, but hopefully one day this material will be translated into other languages including Thai.

Having used NVDA for a while, and having actually used it in real-world situation in the classroom, I'm now feeling confident to actually start promoting NVDA on a large-scale in Thailand, with the goal of it eventually replacing Jaws as the main screen reader for blind people in Thailand.

Hi Supanut,

Good question and unfortunately I don't have an answer for you - it may be something we can give the option of delivery methods and costs or we may need to make a decision on a carrier etc.

It's definitely something we'll make clear when we do have an answer.

Re: Windows live mail question

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

From feedback I have, live mail 16 is needed,this is the one with ribbonmenus.

Would not know if there are any screens that a portable install will not access during this on windows 10, but somebody will know. If she has been an Outlook Express user, she may prefer the version of OE a third party has built which does not run on windows 10. It needs a small donation to the authors via paypal, but you get installation on three machines and support via their web forum.

I do not have the address, but I just searched for Outlook express for windows 10 and there are seemingly only two options, one is this normal version and the other is a rewrite look alike that doesnot seem to work with screenreaders.
A
couple of words of warning. Whatever you install, if its going to be used with any access tech, turn off the preview pane when setting up. It can make nvda do odd things.
Also if you try to install the live mal 14 version it seems to get stuck on windows 7 and later. It used to work but I think a windows update has messed it up.
If you use OE even on xp, with nvda, occasionally OE forgets how to display messages or to be able to write them. an OE restart normally fixes this one. Certainly works on xp and 7.

Happens if multiple identities are created and the preview pane is on.

Re: Browse Mode vs Focus Mode Sound

If you turn the sounds off, it will revert to spoken mode changes.I found that these were not reliable for some reason, so I put the sounds back on. The clunky sound is Focus mode, the tone is browse mode.


As for use in Word. Not really found a great deal of use for them in that program as yet.

Subject: [nvda] Browse Mode vs Focus Mode Sound


Hello All,

I am trying to work a bit more with Browse Mode and Focus Mode, particularly in the context of an MS-Word document, which is giving me more than a bit of trouble as far as wrapping my head around what I should be doing.

One of the first things I'm trying to determine is what mode goes with what cueing sound. When you hit NVDA+space to switch modes, where and when you can switch them, one sound is a chime and the other is an electronic "cheep" of sorts. Which sound indicates which mode? I was expecting a verbal cue like "browse mode on" or "focus mode on" but that's not what I'm getting.

Also, I have a 52-page MS-Word document that's chock full of hyperlinks. When I'm in what I believe is browse mode and I hit NVDA+F7 I get the announcement regarding the Elements List, but no dialog box appears like it does if I'm trying the same thing in a webpage. I thought I would be able to get a set of links showing like I do if I'm in Chrome or Firefox looking at a webpage, but instead listing all the links within the document, but the dialog box never appears even though it's announced.

I'm using NVDA 2016.1 and Microsoft Word 2010 running on a Windows 10 Home, 64-bit machine. Any guidance or assistance would be much appreciated.

Brian


Re: Where does NVDA save its setting about running in login screens?

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

Well, if this is true, why does not altering it manually then hitting the copy button to put system settings at start up actually change anything?
I think there is another place where stuff is copied when you hit that button as if you, for example put in a add on it will warn you that it is copying this data to the systems area. One assumes that this area is not directly get at able and may be either in the registry or in some protected area elsewhere.

Hi Simon
Perhaps you missed the response from Joseph Lee yesterday where he indicated
an INI file is used and it is stored in the program folder. On my system I
believe it to be the nvda.ini file in

To get it unchecked so nvda doesn't speak at the login screen so people

Are you looking for the location itself or how to make it save it. I'd
imagine as its a system setting on the current user, it is in that users
settings which are not always available for the user to fiddle with
depending on if they are an admin or not.
There is a button in the general settings and this will warn you if it
thinks there is a possible issue, such as uncertified add ons etc.

Re: best torrent client?

As I said, it knows about a lot.  I don't install a lot of programs and utilities and I haven't seen an instance where it didn't know about something.  I would think, but I don't know this, that if it doesn't know about something, it will simply leave it as it is.  In other words, if a check box, for example, is checked, it will leave it checked.  others may wish to comment further.  I'm simply saying that it is prudent to look for things.  The program, as I said, knows about a lot but it uses a data base and that data base doesn't have information about every unwanted bundled program.

Re: Windows live mail question

Gene
 

You install accounts in the typical way.  Assumedly, you are using the ribbons version of the program. 
Open the menu with alt f then look through the menu for options.  Press enter.
A submenu opens.
Look through it for e-mail  or e-mail account settings or something similar.
Press enter.
Atypical e-mail account setup dialog will open.  Presumable, you are well familiar with such dialogs.  If you need more help or are not as familiar as I expect you are, ask here. 
 
I don't know if you know this, but Ribbon programs have one menu where you find many commonly used items or submenus to such things. 
The newer version of Windows Live Mail has items in the menu you used to find elsewhere.  Options is there, as I said.  And the program is organized differently in this or that other way.  For example, there is no tools ribbon.  Some things such as options that were in tools, are now in the menu.  And message rules are found in the folders ribbon.

Re: best torrent client?

Gene
 

it doesn't make sure you don't get any additional programs.  It knows about a lot of unwanted programs and stops them.  It does not know about every unwanted program.  You still, as a computer user, should check whatever you are installing and/or the download page for any check boxes that relate to anything being installed or downloaded.  I believe that even the discussion of the Unchecky program on the web site makes this point.  When people install programs, they should not skip such explanatory material.  I am not talking about reading a long instruction manual.  I am saying that on web sites, when you are on a page about a program, there is often some sort of discussion about that program and, as I recall that is true of NVDA add ons as well.
