suggestion for feedback

Rusty Perez
 

Hey folks,
I think it would be a GREAT idea for NVDA to have a feedback option
right in the NVDA menu.
"report a problem" or something like that.
Honestly, it's easier for me to just use another browser than to slog
through a registration and goofing around in github to report a
problem.

I know, NVDA is donation ware, but it might make the product even
better to make giving feedback a more painless process. :)

Unable to Start Outlook 2016 While Running NVDA

Ralph Boersema
 

Note: I changed the subject line when I sent the message below, but it continued with the original subject when I received it. So, I’ll try again.

 

 

I am running Windows 10 and have the latest update of NVDA. Lately my Outlook 2016 has restarted almost every time I change folders in my Outlook Mail. Then, yesterday I found that it would present a problem and not be able to restart. I could also not start up Outlook from the Windows Start menu. With the help of sighted persons, we found that we needed to exit Nvda, open Outlook  and a particular mail folder, and only then start up NVDA.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Warmly,

Ralph

I guess you could uninstall the add-on and re-install it again

See if that solves the issue

 

Make sure the folder is removed after uninstalling

Just to make sure

 

Good luck

Re: Google drive nagging

Idrive is different. It has nothing to do with apple. You can do express back ups and restores, and more. He app is very accessible and you can even back up your phone as well and access that off site. It will even do facebook, one drive and I don't actually know what else. Here is my ref link.

Take care all and hope you can use this at the same time with google drive.

I see that Google drive are nagging me to update to the back up and restore new version. I disabled updates some time ago to keep the old format as nvda would not work very well with the newer versions coming out and also they were crashing machines all over the place
Is it now safe to update as the cryptic message its putting up every so often is that its no longer supported, which could just mean its not ever going to get security updates or that they intend to stop users with the old software from accessing the system any more. I have no idea which, but a few days after Google also nagging me to not use email clients to access their accounts they do seem to be getting a bit too aggressive toward their users in my view.

Is there any other easy to use cloud storage that can run on old xp machines,which is the only real reason for using google drive at all since dropbox stopped its software running, mainly due to the fact that they started to use a newer code compiler that made code that fell over on xp.

Re: Kindle program and NVDA

ryan chou
 

Quick update. Apparently the uninstalling, removing all the data left
and reinstalling didn't work out for this particular case, not sure
what else there is to try though, as we've established through trial
that it isn't NVDA itself any more, or the book attempting to be read.

On 2/8/18, Mallard <mallard@...> wrote:
Hello Ryan,


Ask your friend do re-download the book, with the new installer you
sent, and see if the option is available  from the menu. If it is, it
means he's got the old version of the book, downloaded with the rpevious
version of Kindle for Pc, and he should obtain a newer format.

In theory my friend should have the latest version, I sent the
installer straight from the website. Although they did used to have an
older version of the program, like way, way out of date... so maybe
the problem's being caused from some left over data that wasn't
overwritten? First thing though I think will probably be to try the
reinstalling after clearing everything out.
Thanks.

Hello Ryan,


Sorry for chiming in here. I've only just seen this, and wonder whether
your friend has the latest Kindle for Pc version.


I have an older version on my netbook, and tehe newest on this machine.
If I download my Kindle books on the netbook, I get a non-navigable
version, pretty much like the older format Amazon used to have.


If I re-download the same title on this machine, with the latest Kindle
version, I get a navigable version (hope the word "navigable" isn't made
up... lol!).


This, of course, provided the title does have both versions available.


Usually, the newer format comes as a folder, while the older one comes
as three single files, which include the azw file.

As to the problem, it's pretty much that issue exactly. When I remoted

perfectly fine using the review keys, but you can't just normally
navigate using browse mode or say all.
Thanks for your assistance.

Just looking through our issues, if I search for Kindle:

However as of today, apparently the issue is back, and I have no

on
what it could be, as I use the kindle reader too and I never had any

the current book in question has already been read successfully so we

using windows 7, and me being on 10.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi!

I'm running Windows Insider build 17074.1002 64 bit. With this build, the current NVDA Master won't read menus in Notepad. Perhaps more importantly, context menus for files and folders in Windows Explorer are also not read. For me, that is. It would be great if other Windows Insiders could try to reproduce, to prevent this from suddenly affecting users post 2018.1.

Here's one piece of evidence it's NVDA-related and not just my system: JAWS does not have those problems. Reinstall of NVDA does not fix them, neither does restoring factory defaults.
Kind regards,

Felix

Hi Joseph,

Win+X says unknown for me and indeed does not read. The other menus that didn't read, however, didn't say unknown, just in case it matters.

Kind regards,

Felix

Hi,

What about Windows+X menu? If NVDA does not read that menu, then don’t worry – fixed in newer builds.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi!

I'm running Windows Insider build 17074.1002 64 bit. With this build, the current NVDA Master won't read menus in Notepad. Perhaps more importantly, context menus for files and folders in Windows Explorer are also not read. For me, that is. It would be great if other Windows Insiders could try to reproduce, to prevent this from suddenly affecting users post 2018.1.

Here's one piece of evidence it's NVDA-related and not just my system: JAWS does not have those problems. Reinstall of NVDA does not fix them, neither does restoring factory defaults.
Kind regards,

Felix


Re: Potentially important observation with Windows 10 Preview

 

Hi all,

To be specific: Microsoft and NV Access were notified about this problem weeks ago. After investigation from both sides (with help from Windows Insiders), it was determined that a new feature under testing might have been a factor in this problem. Consequently, removing this feature resolved this issue, as implied in the release notes for build 17083.

If you’re on build 17074 and notice this issue, I advise temporarily moving to fast ring or wait until the next slow ring build is released.

Cheers,

Joseph

NVDA GOES SILENT SOMETIMES IN FIREFOX ON WIN10

Hey folks,

For the past few weeks this has been getting progressively worse.
I bring up FF and hafter just a few minutes of reading a page, or
scrolling down in emails, NVDA goes silent. I wait for a few moments
and speech comes back.

any thoughts, or fixes.<div id="DAB4FAD8-2DD7-40BB-A1B8-4E2AA1F9FDF2"><br />

Re: Google drive nagging

 

Hmmm any tips for google backup sync.

Also, how do you use i drive, apple made a mess of the icloud interface last year so although I can select boxes with narator and nvda I can't do much else.

Subject: [nvda] Google drive nagging


I see that Google drive are nagging me to update to the back up and restore new version. I disabled updates some time ago to keep the old format as nvda would not work very well with the newer versions coming out and also they were crashing machines all over the place
Is it now safe to update as the cryptic message its putting up every so often is that its no longer supported, which could just mean its not ever going to get security updates or that they intend to stop users with the old software from accessing the system any more. I have no idea which, but a few days after Google also nagging me to not use email clients to access their accounts they do seem to be getting a bit too aggressive toward their users in my view.

Is there any other easy to use cloud storage that can run on old xp machines,which is the only real reason for using google drive at all since dropbox stopped its software running, mainly due to the fact that they started to use a newer code compiler that made code that fell over on xp.
