Re: NVDA and sappy five voices

 

where do you get file explorer ++ from.

I may actually use that instead of actual windows file explorer that and classic shell on my boxes, while I really like things, it does seem I will need to use extras so things work well enough.

Does NVDA work with sapi 5 voices? Is it hard to get going? This would be on windows 10. I'm not sure if that was still work under windows 10. Still don't have a Windows 10 machine, but I'm just about to the point of buying one, since the d" Mac just isn't doing what I needed to do. But that's another thread not for this list.

Re: Halloween In-Process

 

I just looked at that.

Sadly audiogames.net needs a version of firefox over 55.x and some other sites, bandcamp, etc do not work right.

I looked into a user agent module for firefox but couldn't figure it out, so I went back to firefox 56, so I will have to well do whatever I can to handle with 57 or whenever updates come out for 57 I will have to simply not update firefox at all.

If that can be done easily well.

Also, if there are settings in about:config I can turn off then I do that.

Re: fixing error message?

Austin Pinto <austinpinto.xaviers@...>
 

i would say.
if the condition has gone so far that you cant even run nvda properly
its time to reload windows or restore from an image.
you may be able to patch the wound but there may be others which may
show up once you patch this one.
i would not waste time on reg backup restores and all

Thanks, David. Do you happen to know where that alternative FileExplorer might be obtained? I am not going to have a 4 TB hard drive. I'll be lucky to have a 1 TB hard drive. In fact, a 512 GB SSD would probably do me. I was looking around on the Accessibility central site. There is definitely a lot of stuff there. Now finding a machine without crap where that won't break the bank, that's another problem. I was looking on the windows store from Microsoft. It seems that everything there is either expensive or out of stock and expensive. Smile. Oh well. Something will turn up.

I don't follow the subject enough to recommend one.  Erunt used to be popular and it still probably is for those not using Windows 10.  I don't know if this is still the case, but for awhile, Erunt didn't work fully with Windows 10.  Others may know of a program or may know if Erunt has been updated.

Yes, What I normally is that I copied the file folder in the roaming directory and place it to my desktop, or flash drive. then once the reinstallation process is done I go directly to paste the addons folder to roaming directory again.

Re: backing up nvda addons?

Gene
 

I don't know if system restore backs up NVDA add ons.  it backs up a lot but not everything.  As far as backing up add ons is concerned, my guess is that if you create a portable copy of NVDA and check the check box that says something like copy current user configuration, that add ons will be copied to the portable version.  Then, later, you can use the portable version to create an installed version.  Since I'm not sure if they will be copied, you can try it and see.  If you do make a portable version, use a blank folder.  NVDA places the files in the folder you specify.  It doesn't create a folder in the folder named NVDA or NVDA Portable or something like that.  So if you use a folder with other files in it, NVDA files will be splattered throughout the folder.  This really should be corrected.  In general, if you do something like this and specify a folder, a folder is created in that folder for the program.

Re: backing up nvda addons?

John Isige
 

Sure. Tell NVDA to create a portable copy, under tools, and tell it to include addons, there's a checkbox. If you have something like Eloquence or the Vocalizer voices you might want to unlicense them first. You can put that portable copy in a folder on whatever drive you want, I usually do something like d:\nvda since that's my data drive. As soon as Windows is up and you have sound, just run d:\nvda\nvda.exe or wherever you put it, then go into tools and tell it to make an installed copy. Done.

You said you registered the files but are you sure they are still there in the first place?  Did you check to see if there is anything to register?  In Windows 10, as I understand it, you can reload Windows and keep all your programs installed.  I don't know anything about that option but I've seen discussions that it is available.  My impression is that it places a clean version of
Windows on your machine but keeps everything from the old installation that is necessary to run your already installed programs including the old programs.  Others who know more about all this may wish to comment.  But I would strongly urge anyone who isn't using another reversion program to make sure system restore is on.  I don't know how many times I've seen instances when System Restore would be likely or very likely to quickly solve a problem but it isn't available.
 
Another option may be System File Checker but I don't know enough about that option to discuss it.  Perhaps someone else will.

I did this by using the Windows media tool to download and create a Windows 10 DVD.  I then did a install from the DVD and during the setup there is a option to keep all apps and personal files. After the install completed my problem was solved and none of my programs, apps and personal files were effected.  I had to do no reinstall of such things as firefox, thunderbird, Open book, Jaws and NVDA.    So again to keep your installed programs and apps and all personal files make sure tthe keep all apps and personal files is checked.

Hi.

Well I just decided to update skype for windows desktops.

It sadly appears that skype the new skype sadly is not even closed to accessible.

Buttons for contacts and messages appear ok but over that there is a lot of clickable, clickable, clickables.

The settings tab was completely inaccessible though I was able to set it up just fine.

I really hope ms is going to keep skype classic, you can get round this right now by typing skype setup full in google and it will find you the old one but how long this will stay out is anyone's guess.

I can't even get the right click menu in system tray to work.

If anything else all I really want is ms to keep skype classic available for those that want it, they don't need to do anything to it, I'd prefur a simple classic skype for us blind people but failing that if skype stays as it is well.

I just can't loose skype all my business and other stuff goes through it.

Its not an option, but if skype becomes crap, I may have to use an old version or even just no longer use skype because its crap now!

No, I can't even do that, the new interface I just can't get round it, I have been happily able to reinstall skype classic and update it with the latest classic version.

You need to look for the classic version now.

This is not on.

And it appears the new app won't run on the latest win10 which itself is fine but to be honest the classic skype is really accessible.
