Re: what in the world is happening with firefox and nvda

 

Hi tony, yeah I hear you.

I run malwarebytes once a year and it usually doesn't find much of anything usually.

Windows defender is getting a facelift in the next windows version but who knows.

After disasters with other apps I came to the end of my teather, and that was basically that I didn't want to spend my life babysitting security software.

Usually it would be me turn on computer x y z.

The security software updates or not sometimes I have to do it.

The said software deciding I need securing ignoring what I put into it so I have to reconfig that.

Or it happily clobbers x y z and a b e d f g 5 s e or whatever and then says its done.

Except that something I don't want gone is gone.

Then it won't let things through, then I have to argue with it that the printer is not a problem.

Then a user wants to allow things through.

Even if then it all works and something tries to get in, the multidialogs popping up saying something tried to get in means I have to keep denying them.

And even when all that worked, I need to remove software or a bit of it to get something sorted.

I turn it off.

I turn it on except in turning itself off its mangled itself so it can't be turned on.

At this point one would reinstall the software but it doesn't cleanly.

So I need to reformat all computers hope that they will last another 2 weeks or so enough for me to get my life before the next reformat.

Reformat reformat fixes everything because a reformat is good for you.

ANd for 2 years everytime I got a problem it just got a nice reformat.

One day I broke my temper at it.

Even if it didn't fail, even if I didn't have to reformat, even if I didn't have a problem, even if it was a normal day, there was a 30 minute config time, 2 hours to make sure it worked and 3 hours of well hoping things didn't screw.

Msse works, even avg needed a bit of coaxing but yeah.

I am seriously over the security thing.

And it probably won't matter after I go to 10.

I am more worried about ms hoping they don't kill skype classic.

Hi Shawn,


recently while working on 2 different PCS for 2 friends,  I found that
the closest thing that will perform in the ways you want is believe it
or not malware bytes. In both the paid and free versions, I was able to
create exceptions for programs which was what both of my clients needed,
without much of a problem, using the interface is a matter of tabbing
around the screen to the different parts of the program, and it is
accessible with NVDA. I am seriously considering making the jump to the
premium version of the program for both of my systems myself. It is
increasingly becoming more and more difficult to find antivirus and
security programs with decent accessibility support.

Well to be honest I'd just reinstall windows.

hitman is made by sophos now.

I am still searching for a good antivirus, I'd prefur not to pay
expensive subscriptions for something that may or may not stay
accessible though.

And if it is accessible, I want it to be msse accessible in other
words, I want it to fully work with either an addon or not.

Thats the way its going to have to be.

Msse is good access wize, but protection wize well I want something
that is easy to put exclusions for blind games and the like, I want
something I can control and configure easily and I want something
which performs and does not bog down the system or add extra unwanted
things.

I also want to trust my security program and not have to bother withit
unless I need to msse does that.

I need something with a accessible interface that uses standard
controls, etc.

If it needs to be a subscription for my 3 pc network and maybe others
I want something low cost to.

An entire suite will be nice I guess but its not needed.

Maybe files have been unregistered by the program but I'd be worried
that files have been removed.  Does the program quaranteen files or
just remove them?

Also, does the person have system restore points from before the
problem started?
And if files have been removed that are Windows files, not just
unregistered, and if no restore points are available from before the
time the problem started, is there a way to repair Windows that will
restore the files?  I don't know enough about repairing Windows or
having Windows replace missing files to comment further.

Hi Gene,




I think I know what's happened. While at my friend's house we updated
her hitman pro antivirus to the latest version and all seemed to work
well until I went into firefox.  I'm testing the same set of
scenarios on my system here at home and have gotten the exact same
problems that she has. I've sent the information on to my sighted
partner and between the 2 of us we should be able to straighten
things out. We will also put together a piece on this and send it to
the folks who make the antivirus program to let them know that this
happens.

Thanks for this information mate. Because registry editing may come into

This is what i just copied off it and there looks to be a reg patch but
think it is for windows 7 or 8.


8. On Windows 10 (both 32 and 64 bit), also enter the following command:

can you tell me if nvda is doing any of the following? In all browsers
is he saying unknown or will not speak the contents of the web page? did
the page fully load try the f5 key to do this or use the nvda key + f5
key and see if it plays nicely?

Does he work in microsoft edge and read out the contents?


Down on the running application area on the task bar does nvda speak any
of the programs there?


When you hit the applications key does nvda speak any of the menus as
you arrow down it?


If you are running mozilla thunder bird does it say unknown as you tab
into it or try to get to messages or the menus it would be the same for
mozilla fire fox.

howdy mates

for some reason nVDA and firefox are having quite a time getting along
with each other now.  When web pages come up you get the announcement
that the page is up, however, nothing else works. Tabbing through the
page for links, browse mode keystrokes, everything appears to be shot.
Does anyone know what happened, and a fix for it if there is one?  Very
strange indeed.  using the latest versions of both windows 10 pro and
NVda.

Re: Adobe Digital

Mostly because calibre uses a *lot* of resources, and when I extract the epub files, I don't use any resources at all just clicking on them (well, on the first one), to load it into my browser, after that, the only thing I need to change is the last 1 or 2 digits in the address bar, and that's real simple.  I only change the names of the files to make it easier for me, it's actually not necessary.

And, besides, why should I convert html to html, it's a waste of time.  The epub books are already html format, and I see no reason to use a 3rd party program to simply make their names more convenient for myself, when I can do that myself.

Um, why not just use Calibre (which is cross platform too, by the way) to convert .epub to .htmlz and read it that way. No skipping around in the address bar, with split000.html and split00001.html.

trouble with microsoft Outlook 2016 message list and views

Dave Bahr <dcbahr1@...>
 

­Hi, I was wondering if anybody else had run into this problem. I am unable to read properly from one mailbox in Microsoft outlook 2016 to another mailbox. NVDA is not reading the message list properly. In my Gmail account, the view that is their works perfectly fine but it is not copying over to the other account which is also an IMAP account for my school. When I go into the views list for my school account, it says that there are no views listed. Furthermore, no matter which mailbox I'm in, it does not read the list of columns that I can move up or down so I can change what order things are in. I would use Thunderbird except I can't figure out how to copy my contacts from Outlook to Thunderbird because of a bug in Thunderbird and I can’t figure out how to map fields properly for 2000 or more contacts.

 

Sorry if this message is confusing. Basically, one account reads perfectly fine even though I can't move columns up and down. The other account doesn't read very well at all or, if I apply one of the other views like compact, single, or preview, moving the arrow keys around really does nothing. I can collapse the groups sort of in the school account, but I have to shift-tab and tab to get NVDA to read what message I’m on. That’s a pain.

 

Let me know if you need more clarification, it's hard to explain. Has anybody else run into this? Maybe it's a simple solution and I just don't know where to go.

Thanks, Dave

Re: Adobe Digital

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

The zip file is simply a collection of all of the files in the epub format, (usually in multiple directories), one of those directories is the actual book content, and it's name varies depending on what epub creater was used to make the book, but it's usually relatively easy to find, (just look for the directory that has multiple xml/html files).  Simply enter that directory, and select any file you like, they're usually named with chapter numbers at the end of their name, though some of the names are a mile long for obscure reasons nobody but the epub creater knows, so wading through all that to get to the actual numbers at the end is sometimes a chore.  I have actually written both unix shell scripts, and windows batch files to rename these files to just their chapter numbers, because I don't need all the artifacts relating to creation, since I'm not actually using their prebuilt table of contents, so names don't need to match for me.

But in any case, after the files are named properly, it's simple enough to click on the 0000 or 0001 file, then to move to the next one, I just change the address in my browser, which is usually as simple as pressing control-l, pressing end, then backspace, then the new number, then press enter.  Very fast and simple.  Again, for folks who like their guis (I am not one of those people), you might want to stick to the epub reader you're using now, but I find having complete access to the book via web browser suits my purposes just fine.

Right now I'm not able to select the text so I can highlight, or

Um, why not just use Calibre (which is cross platform too, by the way) to convert .epub to .htmlz and read it that way. No skipping around in the address bar, with split000.html and split00001.html.

Nvda OCR should allow user to add new character

Muklesur Rahman
 

Hello community, I am sharing my idea. If it is wrong, let me correct.
I think, as Nvda has an ocr, it should allow user to add new character
in the input by scanning an image of the character and add an output
according to the user's desire. I think, if this process is possible
to apply, any one will be able to add any language with ocr.
I don't know, if any ocr software provides this opportunity to it's
user or not. However, if you know, please advice.
Thank you all.


Re: How do I change which program opens a file with a given extension?

Chris
 

I think the easiest way to change this is to right click on the pdf and select open with and if theres a sub menu select choose program

And from the list choose adobe acrobat reader then tab to always use this program and check it

Then hit ok

That should do it

 

You can also choose the program to open with through file properties if that’s easier

They are only a few hundred dollars, if even that, haven't priced the NVDA
