Re: about taskmanager

Felix G.
 

Hi Paul,
Task Manager is a bit slow on Windows 10 due to the way it implements UIA. Make sure you got the Windows 10 Essentials add-on installed, and after opening Task Manager, give it some time to fully establish communication with NVDA. For me, anything up to a minute or even slightly more is unfortunately normal.
Greetings,
Felix

Braille table problem

lrs@...
 

Hello, list!

We need to extend the Norwegian 8 dot braille table used with NVDA. When
working with that, I tried to rename some liblouis braill tables to the
default 8 dot braille table which are used today, namely
no-no-comp8.ctb, found in louis\tables.

I tried to rename no-no-generic.ctb, and that works.

When I renamed other tables, like no-no-8dot.utb
or no-no-8dot-fallback-6dot-g0.utb into no-no-comp8.ctb, the
braille display became blank.

I can see that the table files that works, has no include statement
whereas the table files that don't, has statements like

include no-no-comp8.ctb

Can someone please explain if it's the include statement that is the
problem, or if it's other factors that prevents the other tables to
work?

Thanks and regards, Lars

I saw your message about my message not being received by you.  I was curious and checked the archives.  It appears not to be there.  I'm not sure why the message didn't get to the list.  So my message last night appears to be the first time my discussion reached the list. 
 
I'm sorry the message said I sent a message specifically to you.  While there is nothing wrong with that, since you didn't see it, I should have just said I sent a message asking you or asking that, or something without the emphasis.

Some issues

Othoniel Cavanellas
 

Hello,

I have been using NVDA for the past 30 days and I am experiencing problems with Outlook 2016. If NVDA is active, whenever I switch from one mailbox to another, Outlook crashes and is restarted. It also happens when I open certain types of messages, normally messages with some type of image inbedded (in this case I close NVDA and the message opens OK).  I also tested shutting down the antivirus to see if I was affecting NVDA, but the problems persist.

 

Below you have my PC config:

 

Windows 10 PRO Portuguese version 1709 edition 16299.192

NVDA  version 2017.4

MS Office 365

Trendmicro Maximum Security

Another issue is that sometimes NVDA mutes for no reason, and suddenly restarts talking, or if I force its restart, it works again.

 

Can you guys help me with these problems?

 

Many thanks and greetings from Brazil!

 

Othoniel Cavanellas

I sent a message as moderator specifically asking you not to send thank you messages.  Did you see it?  If you want to write someone on list and say thank you along with another message such as your messages that ask people to write you privately, that's alright.  (I've seen four or perhaps more messages this evening that say nothing but thank you .  This is list clutter.  If you want. thank people in advance in your initial message or send one thank you message after you've seen enough replies that you think it's appropriate.  But no more than one. 
 
How many people would want to be on this or other lists if everyone who asked a question and got multiple answers sent thank you messages in response to every message they got?  The list would be three fourths thank you messages and no one would want to be on it.

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.

Subject: [nvda] When posts contain email addresses

Hi all,

when people say we can email them by email and give the email address, why does the forum system cut everything after the @ symbol out?

For example, in Quentin's reply to Ryan Cho's question about Kindle on Windows, it says:

‘If they can recreate the issue and then get a copy of the log to send us that might help shed light on what is happening - they (or you) can email it to me at info@... and I'll have a look.’

So the email address doesn't appear in the post, nor when I right lick on it and select ‘copy email address’ does it copy the email address, only info@...

Is this something in my forum preferences, or should I spell out email addresses like nvda.user at gmail dot com?

Since this isn't related to the Kindle post I've posted it as a new thread, but this is the link to the Kindle topic in case needed: https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topic/10299590

thanks :)

Re: suggestion for feedback

Quentin Christensen
 

Fair points.  Re searching for issues, by default GitHub will search for open issues.  If someone else has posted the same thing but it's been considered and decided not to fix, or already fixed, or closed for some other reason, it won't be in the first list of results.  If you look back at the edit field with what you typed when the results are shown, it will display:

"is:issue is:open" in front of what you typed.  Leave the is:issue part, but if you remove the "is:open" part, then it will show both open and closed issues.  (alternatively you can type "is:closed" to see closed issues, or activate the "X Closed" link where X is the number of closed issues which match.

When you are searching, try and use words which are likely to be as specific to your issue as possible.  Just looking at the issues, there is one called "NVDA Portable copy will not start, reports missing dll".  If I search for "NVDA won't start", I get 68 open and 179 closed.  Searching for "Missing DLL" is better, I only get 5 open and 14 closed, but if I search for the name of the dll file, " api-ms-win-core-rtlsupport-l1-2-0.dll", I get only one issue.

Well I think the idea is that the one field has all the suggested
information to include.  Having just one field hopefully doesn't seem as
intimidating as having a dozen fields to fill in.

But if it's not working and having a dozen smaller fields (I didn't count,
just grabbed the number out of the air) would be easier, then that's
certainly something to look at.

Hi Rusty,



Having a link directly to the issue tracker (even to create a new issue)
isn't a bad idea (unfortunately it will require someone to create an issue
on Github to get the ball rolling *grin*).  As we use GitHub, it would
still open a browser and you would need to be logged into (or create) a
Github account.  Even if we moved away from Github to another issue
tracker, I don't see a way around that, as the issue tracker does several
things:

1. It keeps track of issues that people raise and allows them to be
prioritised and followed through to completion.

2. By registering, it allows the developers to ask follow-up questions,
provide links to test builds so the original person (and anyone else
interested) can see if we have indeed resolved the issue.

3. It allows issues to be searchable and keeps them all in one place.



If we just had say a "provide feedback" option in NVDA which simply sent
us an e-mail with your problem / idea / etc, then it would be hard to keep
track of who had asked for what, how many people were having a particular
problem, and we would get a lot of duplicate e-mails.



The other thing with Github is that while NV Access has several in-house
developers, there are many others around the world who also contribute
code, testing, feedback and other assistance and we need a central
repository to make that all possible.  If you e-mailed me and asked for a
particular feature, we can look at it, but it might be something that isn't
a high enough priority to get to immediately.  It might however, be
something one of our other contributors has an interest in and would like
to write some code to support and they may be able to get to it faster, but
I don't necessarily know who might be interested.



So, in short... would you like to create a github issue with your idea?
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new



Regards



Quentin.

Re: suggestion for feedback

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

Maybe but the problem I have is that bits of the description and what I'm pasting in get all muddled together and it looks and sounds like a heap of rubbish.
Myself I'd rather it have the text in the page not written in the field. I find this an issue on many other sites, almost as annoying as auto complete is.

Well I think the idea is that the one field has all the suggested
information to include. Having just one field hopefully doesn't seem as
intimidating as having a dozen fields to fill in.

But if it's not working and having a dozen smaller fields (I didn't count,
just grabbed the number out of the air) would be easier, then that's
certainly something to look at.

Hi Rusty,



Having a link directly to the issue tracker (even to create a new issue)
isn't a bad idea (unfortunately it will require someone to create an issue
on Github to get the ball rolling *grin*). As we use GitHub, it would
still open a browser and you would need to be logged into (or create) a
Github account. Even if we moved away from Github to another issue
tracker, I don't see a way around that, as the issue tracker does several
things:

1. It keeps track of issues that people raise and allows them to be
prioritised and followed through to completion.

2. By registering, it allows the developers to ask follow-up questions,
provide links to test builds so the original person (and anyone else
interested) can see if we have indeed resolved the issue.

3. It allows issues to be searchable and keeps them all in one place.



If we just had say a "provide feedback" option in NVDA which simply sent
us an e-mail with your problem / idea / etc, then it would be hard to keep
track of who had asked for what, how many people were having a particular
problem, and we would get a lot of duplicate e-mails.



The other thing with Github is that while NV Access has several in-house
developers, there are many others around the world who also contribute
code, testing, feedback and other assistance and we need a central
repository to make that all possible. If you e-mailed me and asked for a
particular feature, we can look at it, but it might be something that isn't
a high enough priority to get to immediately. It might however, be
something one of our other contributors has an interest in and would like
to write some code to support and they may be able to get to it faster, but
I don't necessarily know who might be interested.



So, in short... would you like to create a github issue with your idea?
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new



Regards



Quentin.

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. :)

Re: Google drive nagging

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

No its was just convenient, In the main I can use the net to bring files over to the later windows machines still. but it did give a way of putting files into cold storage when other machines were not on and be able to access them later on. I suppose a network connected hard drive would do exactly the same job though and probably faster in the long run.
I have toyed with the idea of so getting one which could contain several bit drives as both a server and back up device, but when looking at such ideas, I've normally found that screenreaders have serious troubles looking at them as the machines run bespoke software of some kind.

Xp has however a few uses.

1. playing older games as they were ment to.

2. a media player type deal, explorer and the shell are really stable.

To be honest xp started really fast faster than 7 ever did, faster than 10 and this was on a hard drive.

The amd chipped old xp machines now have no into virus or google drive as the new version will not install due to code issues and the processor.
I'm not having a moan, but just wonder how many old xp users will now continue to use their machines with broken security and hacked cloud storage.

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.

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.

Thank you messages - was Re: Admin: Re: [nvda] Google drive nagging

Hi I just did a search of all the folders I use to sort this list and in none of them is a message about this thank you messages. I do agree that one liners are a bit irritating though. One other thing that seems to occur in this and other lists is that we merrily quote the whole thread below our posts, but I has it seems a max length, and often long quoted threads either do not make it or get bounced by the list. This often happens if somebody or more than one somebody, has put in a log file in the message without editing it to the relevant bit.

I sent a message as moderator specifically asking you not to send thank you messages. Did you see it? If you want to write someone on list and say thank you along with another message such as your messages that ask people to write you privately, that's alright. (I've seen four or perhaps more messages this evening that say nothing but thank you . This is list clutter. If you want. thank people in advance in your initial message or send one thank you message after you've seen enough replies that you think it's appropriate. But no more than one.

How many people would want to be on this or other lists if everyone who asked a question and got multiple answers sent thank you messages in response to every message they got? The list would be three fourths thank you messages and no one would want to be on it.

Re: When posts contain email addresses

I take the view that as this is a list only address, I dump all email via rules that do not belong in any of the list folders into a different folder which I only look at occasionally, I also use imap with just the inbox and spam folders selected to look for things that go wrong.

I also have a junk folder in the pop3 part to send threads that I have lost interest in or are not needed by me.
I do wish that Microsoft's latest email offering had rules. it would make me more interested in actually using windows ten stuff. grin.

I'm happy to take e-mail to either info or quentin. I expect the system

Subject: [nvda] When posts contain email addresses


Hi all,

when people say we can email them by email and give the email address, why
does the forum system cut everything after the @ symbol out?

For example, in Quentin's reply to Ryan Cho's question about Kindle on
Windows, it says:

‘If they can recreate the issue and then get a copy of the log to send us
that might help shed light on what is happening - they (or you) can email
it to me at info@... and I'll have a look.’

So the email address doesn't appear in the post, nor when I right lick on
it and select ‘copy email address’ does it copy the email address, only
info@...

Is this something in my forum preferences, or should I spell out email
addresses like nvda.user at gmail dot com?

Since this isn't related to the Kindle post I've posted it as a new
thread, but this is the link to the Kindle topic in case needed:
https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topic/10299590

thanks :)

Subject: [nvda] When posts contain email addresses


Hi all,

when people say we can email them by email and give the email address, why does the forum system cut everything after the @ symbol out?

For example, in Quentin's reply to Ryan Cho's question about Kindle on Windows, it says:

‘If they can recreate the issue and then get a copy of the log to send us that might help shed light on what is happening - they (or you) can email it to me at info@... and I'll have a look.’

So the email address doesn't appear in the post, nor when I right lick on it and select ‘copy email address’ does it copy the email address, only info@...

Is this something in my forum preferences, or should I spell out email addresses like nvda.user at gmail dot com?

Since this isn't related to the Kindle post I've posted it as a new thread, but this is the link to the Kindle topic in case needed: https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topic/10299590

thanks :)

Giles

I have to say I'd not noticed as when I look at the bottom of most posts the system has a link to reply to list or reply to sender, in each case the expected template opens.

I sent a message as moderator specifically asking you not to send thank you messages.  Did you see it?  If you want to write someone on list and say thank you along with another message such as your messages that ask people to write you privately, that's alright.  (I've seen four or perhaps more messages this evening that say nothing but thank you .  This is list clutter.  If you want. thank people in advance in your initial message or send one thank you message after you've seen enough replies that you think it's appropriate.  But no more than one. 
 
How many people would want to be on this or other lists if everyone who asked a question and got multiple answers sent thank you messages in response to every message they got?  The list would be three fourths thank you messages and no one would want to be on it.

Well assuming windows 7 or later DRopbox seems to me to be faster and more intuitive in use.

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: code factory voices

Vlad Dragomir
 

Hi all,

I'd like to join you all in being disappointed. I bought this addon exactly because it offered Eloquence, and I ended up using Vocalizer all the time because of this. Moreover, no updates, no improvements whatsoever for three years, they seem to be no different from Tiflotecnia. It seems to be so tempting to put a half-baked product online and than sit down and see money poor in.

I know it's useless to complain like this, so let's cheer up and hope for a change, miracles happen sometimes!

Best regards,

Vlad.

Re: Google drive nagging

 

I wouldn't use xp for this.

Xp has however a few uses.

1.  playing older games as they were ment to.

2.  a media player type deal, explorer and the shell are really stable.

To be honest xp started really fast faster than 7 ever did, faster than 10 and this was on a hard drive.

Yes but I had serious issues on windows 7 with it crashing. Now the weird thing is that it looks like they have also abandoned xp completely, which was the only reason I was still it as other machines run dropbox and it seems a whole lot slicker than the google drive offering.
The amd chipped old xp machines now have no into virus or google drive as the new version will not install due to code issues and the processor.
I'm not having a moan, but just wonder how many old xp users will now continue to use their machines with broken security and hacked cloud storage.
