Re: Error when selecting Download voices from NVDA Vocalizer menu

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

What error are you getting? I have noticed recently than around the world many internet service providers are now blocking sites using automatic software that might look for key words just to be a bit of a nanny state so to speak or on the other hand, some are actually looking at pages and seeing part https and part http and not liking that so stopping access. I've found this on Virgin here, but its usually a glitch and fixed after some days.

Am I the only one, that when activating the download Extra voices from THE NVDA Vocalizer menu that one gets when installing and activating the NVDA Vocalizer voice package, I get an error page? Hopefully this can be fixed in an update, because it'd save time in wanting to browse to see what other voices there are, especially trying the Premium ones.

If it is Alex then you will need to find out who owns the copyright. It may well be that Apple wanted at least some voices only they have, and hence anyone else using it would no doubt get sued to within an inch of their wallets.

Hi,
I wants had a copy of the Alex voice that worked with Anna VDA. It wasn't a full-fledged voice though. It could read a few things, but that's about it. Really wish someone would make one that was full-fledged. If it existed, I would download it in a heartbeat.

Re: removing avg

Being fair, its actually not so bad, but if you cannot control it due to its inaccessibility then its really not for blind people.
I still find it astounding that so many pieces of software in mass use just do not consider blind users. as an aging population more and more computer users of today will as they age lose their sight and expect to be able to use their software, but it seems that it s just not happening.

Why not try out the Resource Monitor AddOn which is found on the NVDA's

other data. For instance on my HP425 Laptop this is what it has to say;

Yes, I sometimes use firefox, but the problem is the same.

Although I am not 100% sure, I would like to conclude that the problem
is caused by the type of processor and the speed on my machine.

Why, because on my other laptop which use intel (R(core(tm)I4 with 4GB

My new HP laptop which gives me this problem use intel (r) seleron
processor at the speed of 1.6 GHZ.

I have, for sometime now, been looking for your assistance regarding

I have recently upgraded to nvda 2017.4, but the unresponsiveness
still persists.

May I know whether this may be due to my laptop's using intel seleron
processor at a speed of less than 2ghz?

Does the processor type and its speed have any impact on nvda's
functionality / dysfunctionality?

What processor and speed should one take into account when buying a
laptop so that nvda may respond positively?

I am frustrated, because this happens only with nvda and not with
jaws.

I use jaws demo as I have no licence for it to do some work on my PC,
but it responds very well that I do not have the same problems as
those with nvda.

If the processor type and its speed are the cause of nvda'
unresponsiveness, why only it and not other screen reader like jaws?

Your urgent assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.

Please, please, please help, I am getting frustrated everyday.

I solely rely on nvda as my jaws is only 40 minutes.

Yup, a friend of mine says the core part of it is protected so well that screenreaders cannot actually get at the controls or menus.
Increasingly, anti virus makers are doing this, probably for legitimate reasons of stopping them getting hacked but nobody seems to have thought about us. Surely a simple self voicing uninstaller using the built in Microsoft voice would be all that was needed.

Re: malware bites question

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

I think Windows Defender and Malwarebytes have different purposes, and
should coexist. Malwarebytes is useful as an on-demand scanner. Defender
should stay in the background and protect you against viruses and the like,
but not necessarily against malware, adware, etc. Some of these programmes
are not actually dangerous, but just really annoying, and when they for
example install along with a legitimate programme, Defender will not stop
them. However, a malwarebytes scan will find all their registry entries and
help you get rid of them. I know this because this happened to me on my
Windows 10 machine. So, use 'em both, just don't worry about having
Malwarebytes run as a background process, which is not really available for
more than forty days or so in the free version anyway.

Re: Enabling key echo in putty and editing using nano

Antony Stone
 

Can you narrow down the problem to being at your end of the connection or the
server end?

In other words, do you have this problem no matter what you are doing on the
remote machine (nano, vim, emacs, any other editor you choose; also just
generally reading console output of commands, and editing bash commads as you
type them), which would suggest it seems to be a local problem with putty, or
is the problem only when you're using nano, and it's the way that particular
application is manipulating the cursor which is causing problems (in which
case, I recommend trying vim as an alternative to see whether it works
better)?

Re: Survey: Preferred Help Format

Damien Sykes <damien@...>
 

Hi there,
I have never been able to get WinHelp to work with screen readers. Having said that, WinHelp being a legacy format from the old XP days I have never actually tried using it with NVDA.
Again, PDF is another struggling point, at least for me. Converting into a plaintext or HTML format is possible, but it’s nice to be able to just open a document and read it straight away.
HTML help: I tend to prefer this option, though there are two options, packed as a .CHM (compiled HTML format) file, which seems to be the current Windows favourite, or as a single or multiple page folder or zip file etc. I personally had nothing against CHM’s until very recently, when some CHM’s I made refused to open the web pages on a friend’s machine, and when I switched to a 64-bit machine and all NVDA could say while navigating the contents tree was “Unknown, Unknown, Unknown”. Needless to say, that has unfortunately well and truly put me off CHM’s and has had me resorting to decompiling those into multiple page standard webpages and looking at the contents and index pages in source form. Again, not the best way to view help documentation in my opinion.
Obviously depending on machine, Windows version and, um, bitness? Screen reader version, confidence etc, different people will have different methods of dealing with these situations. But personally for me, the way I write help files now are as either a single document, or if it’s a big project, a folder with multiple HTML files, with the main file being called index which contains a table of contents.
Cheers.
Damien.

My team hasn’t told me which help format we will be using for the online help. So, I thought I’d ask a little survey:

 

Which online help system do you prefer to use and a brief why, a.k.a. does one grant you more opportunities than another or is one more difficult with which to make a screen reader work?:

A)      Win Help (chm): old-style windows help system with a content tree on the left, a large pane containing information filling the right and center areas, and a header across the top with forward, backward type buttons.

hello.
as i said before, html is the best format!
after that is chm and pdf is the worse format specially for persian users!
html is the best, browsers and screen readers support it very well.
they are many shortcuts that make navigation easier and we can jump to
our desire parts of web and our desired element just by using one
letter.
for example: we can navigate by heading using letter h.
hope that help you, God bless you all!

A) Win Help (chm): old-style windows help system with a content tree on

areas, and a header across the top with forward, backward type buttons.

Re: Urgently need help (NVDA & Vocalizer addon.

prem.translator@...
 

I still unable to use vocalizer driver. Everytime I run NVDA, the vocalizer driver will launch immediately about 10 windows, There is no way to fix. I can't restart my computer, can't press the start menu, etc. One thing I can do is to hold down the power button and press it again to turn on.

Things I already did:

- Uninstalled NVDA and delete its folder in %appdata%,
- reinstalled it,
- After restarting, I installed Vocalizer driver and voices,
- Then restart NVDA again, and everything was the same,
- Then I remember that I have  portable NVDA with the same vocalizer in my D:,
- I tried to go to D:\Portable NVDA\userConfig\addons, and manually delete the vocalizer expressive driver,
- After that, go to %appdata%, and delete vocalizer driver addon,
- reinstalled it, and everything was the same.

he,

To use directly on the computer, I like more chm, if it is well done and respect the standards of accessibility.

When I look for help on the internet, it seems preferable to html, because it allows a great navigation versatility.
Cheers.
