Hi okay one question.

If you get the new version of NVDA 2018 and you are using windows seven?

Well you get to use the new synthesizer or will it only be able to be used in windows 10?

The first two parts of Welcome to NVDA 2018 tutorial series are done:

http://www.josephsl.net/tutorials

 

Look for “Welcome to NVDA 2018” heading. Due to popular demand, each topic is a separate file. I plan to make each tutorial part a single file once production is complete, as well as providing a zip file of all tutorial files.

 

Changes:

  • Restarting NVDA: “Restart with debug logging enabled” is covered.
  • Creating portable copy: the option to start the portable version after creation is covered.
  • Basic keyboard commands: both desktop and laptop layouts are covered with live examples.
  • Battery status command: while demonstrating this command on my laptop, you’ll hear a surprise message.
  • Touchscreen interaction: briefly mentioned the new Touch Interaction settings which is incubating, along with an example.
  • Synthesizer: in part 2 (Basics), you’ll hear Windows OneCore (aka Microsoft Mobile) voices in action, with Microsoft Mark making his first appearance.
  • Formatting announcement: an example of what happens when you press NVDA+F twice quickly is included.
  • NVDA menu: Preferences/Windows 10 OCR is included but the actual dialog won’t be shown.
  • Add-ons preview: as you listen to NVDA menu segment, you’ll hear menu items for the following add-ons: Windows 10 App Essentials, Remote Support, and DictationBridge.
  • Opening the user guide: now done via Microsoft Edge.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, Joseph,

 

I'll go up to the site and check out the first part of the tutorial. Microsoft Mark is my favorite of the one-core voices.

 

Thanks again for all that you do for us.

I simply installed it over the top, but I first installed it clean. I have no idea why it works better than simply running the portable copy on a machine, then doing an install. It just does for me.
Of course some people who have older machines might get an issue if they use 2017.4 and want it to run on XP, Vista or a Windows 7 machine without sop1!
Those combinations will not work so those buzzing around with a portable version who might encounter any of those machines should use 2017.3 as a separate version on the stick.

I got a Windows 10 laptop as an early Christmas present and earlier, I

tried to install NVDA on it from the portable copy I have, but when I

opened the NVDA Menu, focus didn't switch to it. I tried alt+tab in case

that would help, but I always landed on the window with the folder

focus on the window I want to focus on. I've asked on the blind tech

your laptop manufacturer should have a driver unless the thing is really old.

This happens with NVDA and with JAWS, on both my win7 and win10 laptops.

I have ruled out a mechanical fault, and malware. This could be a
mouse driver or a registry key issue, but haven't explored these areas

Any suggestions ?

Re: My mouse keeps freezing

 

Well synaptic.com should have generic drivers for all their mice.

Windows 10 in theory should handle this though itself.

Hi Fernando

I’ve just done this myself and I copied NVDA from an old computer to a new one as follows:

1. Created a portable copy of NVDA on a USB stick from my old computer (NVDA 17.4).
2. Plugged USB stick into new computer and ran portable copy of NVDA
3. Opened NVDA menu, pressed t for Tools, then arrowed down to Install NVDA.. and pressed enter.
4. NVDA began installing after pressing alt Y to UAC prompt

At end of installation, NVDA opens a dialog asking:



Start NVDA after loggin into Windows (this was checked)

Start NVDA on log-in screen (this was checked)

Copy profile to installed copy (not checked)



I check to ‘Copy profile’ box and pressed enter on OK button. It created NVDA exactly as it was on my old computer, including synthesizers, ad-ons etc. As far as I’m aware, the only thing it did not replicate from my old computer was I had copied my NVDA profile to the Windows system and this it could not do as it is an admin function, so it just uses the default when voicing the log-in screen.



Cheers

Chris

Re: My mouse keeps freezing

What about backups or updates? I find many back up programs create this freezing then working again issue. I don't quite know if its just processor overload or what. I luckily cannot use a mouse but before you start looking for mouse specific issues, see if the rest of windows also slows down first.

I share my laptop with a sighted family member.

The synaptic pad mouse frequently freezes. This occurs intermittently,
without an obvious pattern.

This happens with NVDA and with JAWS, on both my win7 and win10 laptops.

I have ruled out a mechanical fault, and malware. This could be a
mouse driver or a registry key issue, but haven't explored these areas
further.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks, Paul
