Re: Issue installing latest Windows 10 update

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

Hmm I use a program called eusing free registry cleaner for this kind of issue. You need to take care of course and look at what it is asking to delete, as although it is mostly safe, it can muck stuff up. Best manually set a restore point before messing about.
If that does not show it or fix it then I have no other suggestions except maybe bulk crap uninstaller but I've not tried it myself.

Subject: [nvda] Issue installing latest Windows 10 update


Repeatedly, I have tried doing the most recent Windows 10 update. Get to the
step where the installer asks me to uninstall this program as it cannot. The
program at fault is, Window eyes 9.1. It is not listed as an installed
program in Programs and Features, "add or remove". I have searched the
entire computer for Window Eyes and GW Micro remains and find nothing.

Is it possible that the installer is finding a remaining entry in the
registry?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated,

Thanks,
Rick

I was reviewing accessibility standards and came across this.

Quote:
[We] must not develop or implement IT solutions or services in a way that disrupts or disables assistive technology or a platform software's accessibility features and keyboard shortcuts. End Quote.

Is there a list of NVDA keyboard shortcuts? I need to make sure we have copy of the list so we don't re-assign them within our software. If anyone can point me to the same list for JAWS, that would be a bonus!

Re: hd criotgraphy (mainly win10 bitlocker)

 

No, I have never done this myself.

I have had to deal with a server using a cryptolocking style drive with raid backup and a keycode.

Sadly it was on its last legs and had been running slowly.

A new system was got and all software was installed, however, on turning it on, the main logic board part of the key decided to stop existing by happily melting and smoking.

The data was useless, it couldn't be decrypted or anything and while there were several cloud backups of important data one email database and a lot of photos schedualed for backup hadn't been loaded to the right place just yet.

As a result, there was a problem.

The system had worked for the last 10 years and the owner hadn't thought about making a recovery key just incase the logic board broke.

The tech that loaded the system tried his best but nothing.

The guy who sold the drive tried his best but nothing.

Luckily the tech knew someone with really grunty forensic software and was able to get the data sorted however all the folders were destroyed, as well as the file names, and even so some data was lost.

And while I admit this was a isolated insident a little while later I had been transfering backups to another drive when my new and old backups promptly died I managed to replace that and it was fine and I have 2 small drives.

Its been 3 years though and so I probably need to replace one of those drives at some point soon.

I would like to start to use the win 10 bitlocker. I know that, when using it, before everything is necessary to type the disk password. But I don't know if this screen can be read through nvda as the unlocking windows can be. Any though?

Re: I Cannot get NVDA to work in the Start Window

Hi, David,

 

I've done stupid things like that too so don't feel bad. One time I was trying to go to the NVDA menu but all I got was N when I hit insert N. I couldn't figure out why it was happening but when I did a restart, that fixed the problem.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi all!

I am running Win10 1709.

I downloaded the latest master development version of NVDA:

Master 14785

I have the latest development version of Win10 apps assentials:

When I press the Windows key, NVDA will not bring up results when I search,

and NVDA will not do anything, in the start area, when I try to tab to the

mike, to the all apps, or any of that. I have to do object navigation in

there, and that does not work well.

I just thought all of you would like to know, and if any of you have noticed

this behavior in the start area with these latest development versions.

Take care, all!

Re: tiflotecnia vocalizer is marked as malicious by symantec

 

A lot of av stuff does this.

Someone wanted to uninstall the antivirus, I don't care to myself but you could force the antivirus not to run via services as well as apps in win10.

People have excluded all their drives from scanning. or important folders.

But to be honest if an antivirus is that bad thats its reporting things as bad when they are not who knows.

What is worse they change from one day to the next.

I will be doing classes at our local library this spring on PC access and have decided on NVDA as the screen reader choice.

At our ages many will no longer have access to rehabilitation equipment support as they will not be in the job market. They are not likely to want to give up their computer use, but may not have the $800 plus to invest in the other options.

 

I have also been working with Windows Magnifier in combination with NVDA as a means to create what Fusion offers, that is a way to move from enlarged display to speech as a process not a leap. In general, the two together work quite well.

 

I am so impressed with what the developers and supporters like you have managed to do. The tuff future ahead is to discover the paths that lead to long term ongoing development. The target does not stand still as demonstrated by the recent browser changes.

Cheers,

Subject: [nvda] Issue installing latest Windows 10 update

 

Repeatedly, I have tried doing the most recent Windows 10 update. Get to the step where the installer asks me to uninstall this program as it cannot. The program at fault is, Window eyes 9.1. It is not listed as an installed program in Programs and Features, “add or remove”. I have searched the entire computer for Window Eyes and GW Micro remains and find nothing.

Is it possible that the installer is finding a remaining entry in the registry?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated,

Thanks,

Rick

Hi,

You’re welcome anytime. Just in case you do manage to fix this, do let folks know.

As for the tutorial: we’re at home stretch, and if things go as planned, all parts will be packaged into a zip file in February. Speaking of tutorial packaging: expect changes in one or more segments between now and February.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts List

 

Hi,

I’ll take care of that. Which edition do you need: latest release, latest public beta, latest alpha, or latest really unstable build? I can do one of these because I have all of them on my computer. It’s a matter of choosing which one you need and uploading to my website.

Cheers,

Joseph

I realized that I can't send you the most current list.  I don't have a computer set up to be able to run the latest NVDA.  I have a Windows 7 machine that I almost never use online and I've never updated it to Service Pack 1.  My other machines are XP.  So I can send you one that isn't too old but I hope someone will send a newer page.  But this should have most of the keys used in the current edition. 

 

I'll be sending the page in the next ten or fifteen minutes, unless there is some unexpected problem.

Yes, Gene, I would really appreciate that. If the web page is maintained, I’d rather have that. Thus when NVDA changes something, our people looking at the key list will see the changes instead of falling behind.

 

Thank you.

If you don't have NVDA installed, I can send the list of shortcut keys to you.  The quick reference is a web page and I should be able to send you an html copy, if that would make the formatting better, rather than a text copy.  Probably, if you use combinations such as alt shift and a letter, you shouldn't duplicate any NVDA commands.  I haven't looked at the laptop commands, but I've never heard any alt shift commands discussed when laptop commands are discussed here, nor have I seen any in my very slight looking.

Re: The length of a stop

the following message was sent to me by Tonea off list    .  I'm sending it to the list, with her permission, because it is of more general interest.

I checked out Windows Narrator and heard your problem on my own sample writing. The only thing I can think of is to code it as HTML. There should be a way to pause with HTML since they have timed forms and such. Just code it to pause for 1 second. I say that without knowing HTML, sorry.

 

A different approach is to see if you can insert a sound. If the screen reader reached the end of the line and read a silent sound file of one-half of one second and then continued, then the pause would be longer than a period by itself.

 

Just trying to offer ideas, even if I can’t offer a solution.

If it makes it past the security scanners, I can accept attachments. But, no, I can’t do drop boxes.

 

Thanks,

I've never checked for a web page.  I got the impression from discussion here that there isn't an independent web page but I don't know.  If there isn't, I'll send you the file.  But can you accept attachments or do you need to get it in some other way such as a Drop box linkk?

Re: Factory Reset

In my case I don't think that would work. I have to  hold down f7 to bring up the list of tasks for  my custom computer. I think I did not get narrator to start and I had to have aira guide me through the install. That's fine,

Hi


a couple of ways to start narrator


One is through the earch box type narrator then press the enter key


Older versions of windows is the windows key + enter key


The latest version of windows is the ctrl key + windows key + the enter key on windows 10 version 1709

Hi John,

Thank you, my issue is because of updates as well.

To launch narrator is it Ctrl Windows key and enter.

You can launch narrator, but you might need a USB audio device. It goes
to mine, though I have multiple audio devices, so maybe if I pulled it,
the internal sound card would work instead. Use Narrator to set up, then
when you're booted, launch your portable copy of NVDA and then tell it
to install and check the box about using portable settings on your
installed copy. Be sure to tell it to keep all the addons and such when
you generate your portable copy. I had to reset twice within a week
because of a dumb Windows update thing, and that's what I did. Hope that
helps.
