Hello,

I posted a comment on this blog about sounds in future Firefox (see it) and MR Zehe replied me, that he has not known Navigational sounds addon until now and there is currently no plan to embed sounds into Firefox. So if we want this feature, we must contact developers and politely request this feature.

Re: Addons on french website

 

Hi,

Usually add-on authors will bring their add-ons to us on their own. Only then we’ll be ready to review them.

As for MS Word and others, part of this has to do with the fact that NVDA includes features some add-ons had for a while, and some won’t be compatible with newer NVDA releases due to different internal Word support mechanism in place.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello all,

 

Here are some fantastic addons, i.e. for ms word or access. I am really wondering why the developers do not want them to be reviewed and posted in the community.

 

@Paul Berring, great respect for your huge work. I really hope you will submit other addons for review as well. I am sure the user experience in NVDA will be significantly improved.

Re: Nuance Sounds Error (My Resested PC)

When you say reset, what does that mean?  Did you do a system restore, or use the feature that places a clean copy of Windows on the machine and you told the feature to keep all your programs?  Or are you using the word reset to mean something else?

Re: update on dll issue

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

Which reminds me. A question from our office at the blind society. they are going to move from Office 365 to 2016, for reasons of being annoyed by the former, and wondered if doing this might break any screenreaders sometimes used by volunteers. Being as there does seem to be a history of problems with office, i wondered if anyone had tried this change and whether it went smoothly?

The other thing I meant to ask, had you uninstalled anything else? It
looks like the issue was a DLL file being unregistered inadvertently and
uninstalling something is usually the culprit there. Microsoft Office
particularly is a bad one for that.

Hi Hank,

It's an odd issue. It does sound like something perhaps wasn't registered
properly when Jaws was installed or uninstalled. I didn't have a solution
and evidently, no-one else here did either as I know you've posted about
this before. Have you asked on one of the Jaws forums?

In any case, I'm glad you've got it resolved for now.

version is in fact on an internal hard disk. I know that may seem an odd use
of the word "portable", but at least it means we can rule out any problems to
do with externally connected devices.

2. The drive is (presumably) not the same one as contains Roger's "standard"
version of NVDA, because the "portable" copy is on a traditional spinning-rust
HDD, whereas his system drive is on an SSD, which is where I assume his
standard version of NVDA is installed. Therefore your suggestion to check how
full each drive is is well worth while, although I would still expect the
system only to have a single swap partition / file, so if it runs out of memory
running either version of NVDA, swapping will occur in exactly the same way
for each.

3. The drive containing the "portable" copy is an HDD, whereas the main system
drive is an SSD, so drive degradation of the portable copy is a possible
cause, agreed.

Roger,

I've lost track of all the info you gave on the drive. But, I kept a sticky
note of things to check.


1) Check if the USB is version 3. Version 2 is quite a bit slower than
3. Also, most people think they can plug a USB 3 into any USB port and it
will still be a 3. Not true because the slowest wins. If you plug a USB 3
into a USB 2 port, it becomes a USB 2 drive. Vice versa is also true. A 2
drive into a 3 port runs at USB 2 speed. To get full USB 3, both the drive
and the port must be USB 3.

2) Fill status of the drive. If the drive is close to being full, it
may be having to swap data a lot. That can really slow down any
application. You wouldn't notice it on your regular applications because
they would run off the regular drive. However, you would notice it on
anything else that ran from the portable drive. I recommend less that 85%
full, but others here are more tech savy than myself.

3) Drive death immenent. I don't know what it is like to have a solid
state drive die. But, on a traditional spinning drive, the drive will mark
sectors as bad when the drive has trouble accessing them. This can result
in corruptions. And, as the drive has to work twice as hard to find all
the pieces it keeps moving, this can cause slower run time. Thus, you get
slower and slower and more frequent data corruptions in an application. I
don't remember how, but you can test for this.

Thank you Adriani Botez for reminding me of the 2 versus 3 issue. I lost
track of who suggested the other two...

Good luck and let us know the results,

Re: Portable version degrading

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

One of the issues is that often ssd removable media like memory cards and sticks often get removed before a cache is written, so if this causes corruption the original software will still work but the messing about of the operating system attempting to avoid the less good bits can slow it down.Certainly one other thing to bear in mind is if you are using an external hub, and its plugged into a usb 3 port it does not follow that the ports on the hub will work that fast.

I've also noticed that not all usb 3 sticks are equal in their speeds eeither, some seem to take an age to initialise but work fine thereafter others seem to glitch.
You can do a drive check from windows though and can often fix any corruption but be aware it can make the software unreadable. My suggestion is to run a portable coy for a while on the same drive as an installed on, if it still continues at the same speed over time then you can almost certainly blame the stick or usb port for the slow down.

Re: update on dll issue

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

So not clear what the difference is between the two, but to me it sounds like the dll had become unregistered and now its registered again.
I used to get this issue a lot with dlls belonging to the mp3 decoder used by Goldwave when Winamac was on the system. in the end I had to copy another copy to the right place then register that with the system and it has never complained since. My feeling is that its easy to get multiple entries in the registry or delete ones that have path details needed by a different piece of soft3ware. Brian

something screwy is conflicting I mean I got the issue fixed for now but I need to see if I am the only one having this issue if not then I think a bug needs to be filed.

Yeah, you need to tab twice to a checkbox and uncheck it and just make sure to do it the first time round else you will have to exit and relaunch the installer.

ccleaner is part of avast now so we are stuck with it now.

You just have to be awake, the first tab will mention something about security, tab again and there is the checkbox, overshoot and the installer will look like normal and you have to exit and come back in.

I usually update first thing in the morning but if you are half a sleep you will probably miss it.

Sadly a friend used a lot of free cleaners, cleanmaster, puron, ccleaner, and his admin decided that all the free software he loaded including ccleaner was malware filled.

And told him to use norton which his work uses.

Trouble is the interface is rather to complex.

For whatever reason some of my friends used norton at home and still use it.

Especially with the cpu slowdowns and patches, norton is just not something I'd use.

Firstly the latest version of Ccleaner is becoming a pest. it seems to be able to unilaterally decide to install avast anti virus without telling anyone until its too late. Unchecky did not spot it and yesterday, I twice had to take a machine back a day to get rid of it as I'm sure you are all aware how unfriendly the uninstaller is to screenreaders. Its left bits all over the machine, including in some folders labelled Cisco for some reason.
I fell that I need to warn folk about this unacceptable behaviour of ccleaner. It claims, apparently to be easy to remove but not for us.

Secondly the laugh.
Microsoft Security Essentials is something we use in Windows 7, but a person I know was having issues with it crashing, so he sent me a dictated email about it via his Iphone. This wonderful software has renamed this Microsoft program as

OK fine, so I had this wonderful picture of the innards of my machine with all These squirrels inside burying viruses all over the place.

What happens if you re register that particular file, I'm assuming it is actually still there of course as I suspect it will be.

that was the output from jaws virtual viewer sense ncvda won't run

I had the same problem on windows10 when I was running that.

Hello I am still running in to that dll issue where nvda flat out refuses to run when ever jaws 2018 is installed
this is happening on windows7

is there some sort of log or something that I can send to help get rid of this bug?

I shouldn't have to remove jaws demo to get nvda to work there are still some apps that work better in jaws.

but this is a major bug and needs to be addressed

I don't know if jaws is motifying a dll in the system but we need to track this issue down

Re: RES: [nvda] Microsoft's object recognition technology and Cloud questionsfor NVDA

Hi Alexandre ,

It was not that as clear to recognize some of the pictures but, somehow they are like similar in terms of recognition. I think in the orientation or the platform on mobile is not similar as for desktop or laptop. Though, you may still try the OCR still by activating the narrator, then once you heard the voice of the narrator you simply used the key command to capture the image by pressing Shift plus Caps lock plus D. Again, you have to make sure that the cursor is pointed to the graphics and the narrator gives you some description but, again not that full to describe images with compare of the Seeing AI app for mobile. I still believe that this will be more improves on the future releases of Windows 10. For now that is the only thing I've got for you or perhaps others could shed some details for this one.

Developer friends and all NVDA users, greetings.

 

Microsoft has introduced a description feature that allows Windows 10 to

recognize objects, images, and other non-resolvable content on its

screen reader.

Is this open source by Microsoft? Can not we do this with the same DLL

as we do in the same OCR?

 

Finally, Python has great capabilities in the visual part. Legends

emerged especially with the development of artificial intelligence. Can

we deal with a cloud system?
