Re: Here's a new accessible IRC client for windows.

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Hi.

When you say “IRC programme”, are you talking about the iRC protocol itself, or a client for Windows? I have used MIRC on Windows since the late 90s, and ran IRCII through a linux shell before that. Never had any accessibility issues, except when trying to run third-party scripts, like server scripts for filesharing and the like.

So the fork won't update much until the new accessible version comes out.

If this is an image, then there may be a sight that can translate it for you. But it's unnecessary. Search with whatever search engine you want and see if you find a PDF with text. It is very unusual for these sorts of documents, released as news items not to be available as PDF documents containing text that you can download and read in Adobe reader or whatever you use that does so.

Also, I am telling you that I don't appreciate your ill temper, rudeness and arrogance. It is arrogant and condescending to tell someone that has gone through the trouble to provide a link, to try again. If you don't think the site is credible you can say that and say, I'd appreciate it if you find me another link or say something like, for that reason, would you please find me another link. And there is no excuse for swearing on the list. I don't particularly care myself, but the list has all sorts of members and some people may find it offensive.

If it says the full pdf version then it's very likely the full PDF version. Even so-called liberal hack web sites, as you intolerantly call them, aren't stupid. they won't damage their credibility by doing something so stupid as to show something that is available all over the net from other sources, claim it is the full version, and then change or omit information. Unlike many people, I consciously try not to live in an echo chamber. I listen to some opinions I disagree with and I don't assume dishonesty or bad intent. At times I find something I agree with and at times, I understand something better.

If you don't want to read the PDF from that liberal hack web site, then do a Google search for what you are looking for. I realize that there are people who don't know how to do good Internet searches. I'd be willing to help you learn how if you don't. But I'm not going to do it for you. That isn't helping you. That's doing something for you and not teaching you how to find things the next time.

Re: Next snaps broken

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

Yes, Its a problem with seeing parameters of the old copy from the look of it. I run next only as portables. Its important for others to do this from now on as a lot of breakages are likely as the migration to a new version of Python and wx widgets are integrated before the middle of this year.
I'd stick to master myself, as the working copy. Also have a portable version of the last stable release on you system as well as then at least you can go back by installing that.

Be aware that if you are running next as a portable it either downloads and
won't run, or if run it creates another instance unmodified in a new folder
or just hangs up windows when you run it.

Hi its precisely why I use it as a portable as it then does not screw up the running installed copy of course.

Hi,
Another way might be to remove NVDA, install a previous next snapshot, then update.
Technical: someone is working on letting you postpone NVDA updates once downloaded. Apparently this is causing issues like this, so the developer who's working on this comments that it'll take a while for this feature to settle.
An important reminder: this is one of the reasons why I always warn you NOT to install next snapshots unless you are really adventurous or you have to, as next snapshots are alpha-level code. Master, fine, because it includes features tested by alpha testers for a while. If you do use next snapshots, you should do it if you want to report early problems. You may get an impression that next snapshots are stable, and that's likely because the code that gets tested go through a review process to make sure it is stable for everyone.
In case of future next snapshots: there will come a time (as early as next week) that you'll get a chance to learn why I warned you about next snapshots. The snapshot has to do with a crucial subsystem that is required to upgrade to Python 3, a subsystem I've been working on for the last few months. For some, you can ignore this, but if you start seeing errors with add-ons, that's because these add-ons were not updated to support newer wxPython version. And that's just a start: once we start upgrading to Python 3, you'll encounter more errors early. For those who believe that next snapshots are stable, I'm really sorry to say that it is just an illusion, hence my warning and the "real" reason why it may seem stable.
Cheers,
Joseph

I tried to install the next snapshop over a previous snapshot and it failed.

Hi,
The workaround is to get an earlier version of next snapshot, install
that one, and update.

Be aware that if you are running next as a portable it either
downloads and won't run, or if run it creates another instance
unmodified in a new folder or just hangs up windows when you run it.
Windows 7.
So I'd steer clear till they fix it.
I just had to shut the machine down with the power button after
trying to manually run the update exe file today.

trouble downloading

marvin kotler
 

Good evening list, Marv here.  Been having trouble downloading things. Using the latest nvdaand windows 10 1709 billing.  Cannot download files such as audio books in internet explorer, or firefox. Got google chrome installed and I can download things with it fine so far.  Microsoft worked with me and could not find the problem; it is a new computer, also.  Has anyone else had this same kind of trouble?
