Re: Blind Extra Leaves Traces on Your System, Even After Uninstallation

Gene
 

Something is telling whatever does this to look for that add on even though it is no longer there.  I don't know where that information is stored or how it might be removed.  At any event, it sounds like a curiosity rather than anything that matters so if you get the answer, that's fine but it shouldn't cause any problems, I don't think it even causes a noticeably longer time for NVDA to boot.  But it does raise the interesting question about whether uninstalling other add ons cause not found messages for them as well.

Blind Extra is not there. I checked the path, and the addons manager;
it's not on his machine.

Edge is almost my daily browser.

With NVDA, it is very snappy for me, and I can navigate complex web pages, just like with Chrome.

I can play videos, use sites like espn.com, stream TV in Edge, and on and on!

Edge is my browser 80 percent of the time with NVDA.

JAWS is another story, but the latest NVDA and Windows 10 1709, fall Creators work very well with Edge.

I would give Edge with NVDA a B + at least!

Re: NVDA and edge

I too tried Edge tonight. I only tried the BBC Website and it was slightly stuttering and a bit painful with jaws 2018 even with Edge support turned on but I was delighted with the the performance   of Edge and NVDA.

As I say I only looked at a few BBC news stories but nevertheless the performance of NVDA in being so snappy in responding to the browser and reading content  was very reassuring. With these pages at least I will not be left behind with web access as long as NVDA keeps up its support..

Thanks and congratulations must go to the NVDA developers for the enormous amount of work which must have been involved in getting this support nailed on to Edge.

David Griffith.

Re: NVDA and edge

Gene
 

I am unconvinced that it's goind to matter much over time, but we'll see.  One reason firefox is using a different engine is to get more speed and, according to some reviews I've seen, it is now a little faster than Chrome, though the difference, it appears from the very little I've read about this, isn't significant.  A number of years ago, Kim Komando observed that browsers are becoming increasingly alike and as time passes, I suspect this is increasingly true.  so this or that browser may be better at one time or another but in general, I doubt it will matter much over time, assuming they all remain reasonably accessible.

Ah, so you are the one person who likes Edge? Most of my sighted friends suggest its been designed by a person who never used a browser before.
I cannot say for sure as I've not experienced its most recent incarnation, but suffice to say, when I last used it it seems to take me more keypresses and fiddling to do than Firefox does in it current guuise, ie not the dreaded Quantum

Hi Cearbhall

You do the same as me then.  It’s really frustrating, Jaws works fine but I’ve got so much into NVDA I havenn’t even bothered to load the Jaws demo onto my machine.  What version of Excel do you use? I’m on Excel 2007, if it affects more than my version, do you think it is worth raising  it as an NVDA issue?  I know the developers have recently improved many aspects of Excel functionality, if it is a common issue across different versions, it may be worth asking NVDA developers to have a look at our problems and as VBA macros  extend across multiple Office products, it might kill multiple birds with one stone so to speak.

 

Cheers

Subject: Re: [nvda] Excel Macro editing

 

Hi,

NVDA is very poor when editing a macro in the edit screen. Pressing up-arrow from line to line can lose the focus on whole segments of code. Sometimes pressing Code on the edit menu in the macro editor improves the focus but not always. I normally highlight all the code and copy it into notepad where I can edit it fully. I then copy the edited version back into the macro editor, replacing the original code.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

I must admit I don't do a lot of VBA / macro editing currently, but with missing characters, check your symbol level.  Many characters aren't read at lower symbol levels, which works great when reading web pages and e-mails, and not so great for code.  You may like to set symbol level to all for working in VB - either with a configuration profile, or with the NVDA+p keystroke.

 

I can't reproduce missing lines just at the moment (I appreciate you said randomly), so will have to keep looking for that.

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi

Using W10 Home, NVDA 17.3 ms Excel 2007.

There have been long-standing issues where NVDA  does not work properly when editing macro VBA code and cell formulae in Excel 2007.  When navigating VBA code line by line with arrow keys, NVDA will randomly miss out speaking lines of code and when editing formulae, it will randomly miss out voicing some characters, occasionally saying space instead, when using the arrow keys to move character by character.  Has anyone had these issues and found any solutions, maybe in later Excel versions?   

 

Cheers

Chris

Re: NVDA and edge

Hi, David

I often use the Edge but for the sake of testing the navigation with the nvda 2017.3 in such particular site like youtube. I heard repeatedly reading such button like when I press the Tab and the focus is in Pause or to play, etc. Also, into the edit fields as well. In the other note, I have no problem in terms of speed where in fact I am very impress with the Edge to load. However, my question is that how do you come across to set it up this correctly in the nvda.

Hi all!

Edge is almost my daily browser.

With NVDA, it is very snappy for me, and I can navigate complex web pages, just like with Chrome.

I can play videos, use sites like espn.com, stream TV in Edge, and on and on!

Edge is my browser 80 percent of the time with NVDA.

JAWS is another story, but the latest NVDA and Windows 10 1709, fall Creators work very well with Edge.

I would give Edge with NVDA a B + at least!
