Re: NVDA problem after Windows log-in

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Chris,

I wonder if you (and Brian?) and anyone else having this issue could try:

1) Disabling any addons you are using, and see if the issue persists (disable rather than simply restarting with addons disabled just in case it is the addon loading on Windows startup that is causing the problem).

If so, which addons are you using, and are they the latest versions of those addons?

2) Can you pinpoint anything that might have happened around the time the issue first appeared?  Updating Wndows, NVDA, installing or uninstalling any software?

3) could you send me offlist a copy of your full log (I think Brian attached a log to his message which didn't come through to the group).

And finally, has anyone documented the issue on GitHub yet?

Regards

Quentin.

Hi

I have a long standing issue over several NVDA versions where after entering my Windows password, NVDA fires up but only appears to be partially loaded.  I get voice output as I use windows commands to move around.  NVDA+n doesn’t work, so I accessed the log file using the system tray icon but I could not move around in the log file using arrow keys.  I loaded Outlook 2007, opened a message then tried to read the message body using NVDA+DownArrow but just a number was read out and when I repeated the command, the number increased by 5 each time.  I saved the log file, used Ctrl+alt+n to reload NVDA and all began working normally.  This happens all the time and on many occasions after reloading NVDA, there are 2 references to NVDA in the system tray overflow area.  The log file below shows a Watchdog_watcher warning of ‘Core frozen in stack’.  Can anyone shed any light on what is happening here?  I’m using windows 10 Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.371).

Re: help, can't get balloon about Win 10 back!

 

Well you can't autoupdate anymore to windows 10, thats no longer happening.

You can go to control panel and then windows update or action centre and open windows update and from settings change things, there may be an automatic update settings in control panel to turn it off.

Then go to run type services.msc and then right click windows update choose properties, choose disable, hit ok, close the services, then have time being insecure but you can do that.

You can't autoupdate to win10 anymore.

Windows Update on Windows 7 systems within a few weeks of the end of July
2016. That, or you or someone else set up something to intentionally block
Windows Updates (and many people did for GWX) that blocked the removal patch
from downloading and installing.
2. Even though the free update period is over officially, updates to
Windows 10 on Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 systems continues to work, at
least as of last week. You can use the method documented in: Updating

Camtasia: I have installed the huge software’s free trial for now. I
seem unable to find any self-explanatorily worded option to start a
screen recording, am just Tabbing around the interface through the

People need to stop disabling Windows Updates, period.  This is yet another example of where doing so creates more problems than it solves.

If Windows 7 was allowed to run its normal Windows Update process the "offer" of Windows 10 would have disappeared very shortly after the end of July 2016.  It is only on machines with broken or blocked updates where GWX, the Windows 10 offer "nagware," still rears its ugly head.  It was removed via the normal update process 21 months ago.

Vista was never eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 and GWX was never installed on Vista machines.

Re: Chrome's interface was: RE: [nvda] any one on here use f123 chrome extention?

Walmir Schultz <wsautodidata@...>
 

Hi, Chris,

Excuse me. I think I did not express myself well

I know how to use the bookmark bar in Chrome.
What I am referring to is the bookmark panel in Firefox, wich is completely different. Note that Firefox also have a bookmar toolbar, but I don't use it. Instead, I use bookmark panel.
In Firefox I can go to the bookmark panel, go to a folder of sites called Daily, for example, use down arrow to go to Site A and access it with ENTER.
After that, with a couple of strokes in F6 key, I go to the bookmark panel, where Site A is already selected. So, to browse in Site B, all that I need is an arrow down and a ENTER.
and so forth. To visit Site C, the next in my list, again, F6 twice to go to the bookmark panel, where Site B is selected and another down arrow. and ENTER.
All these steps are easier done than described.
This allows me to visit websites in order making sure I don't miss anyone.
So, the lack of something similar in Chrome is the only reason I continue to use Firefox 52 ESR.
Cheers.
Walmir

Alternatively, press alt, then spacebar, then b to open the Bookmarks sub-menu where the folders are accessible via first letter navigation as well as the bookmarks within the folders.

Hi,

What I like in Firefox is the bookmarks panel.

As my bookmarks are all organized in logical groups, I can browse sites in a sequence.

For example, I have a Daily folder and can navigate all the sites, in order, simply by going to the bookmark panel and going to the next bookmark with a simple stroke in the down arrow key.

Using Chrome to navigate in the order I want is very time consuming.

I don't like the way book marks are laid out and I tried using the book marks search feature but, at least in the version I tried it with, the feature appeared to be inaccessible.  I also don't like the lack of short cut and accellerator keys for some items in menus.  It's been years since Chrome has been around and the google accessibility developers still haven't implemented a short cut or accelerator command for book marks, at least as far as I know.  I haven't followed Chrome much for awhile.

 

In addition, though I don't use history much, I still don't want it displayed as a web page when I do use it. 

 

I regularly use the book marks search feature in firefox and I find it so useful that I never organize book marks any longer.  If a book mark isn't conveniently available where it is, I use the search feature. 

 

As far as settings are concerned, I'm not sure if I have an opinion about which I prefer, the firefox layout or the Chrome web page layout.  But for me, history and book marks are important enough that I use firefox.

Gene,

 

This poses an interesting debate. I’ve also changed the subject line to better reflect.

 

You say you don’t like the Chrome interface. To be very clear/honest, neither did I at first, but the more I’ve been using Chrome, the more I’m growing to swear by it!

 

I’m just curious what exactly you don’t care for. Is it the fact that things are now mainly laid out in web views instead of multi tab dialogs? If so, that through me for a bit of a loop as well at first until I got used to it, so yeah. That would be a fair statement if so.

Whatever else may have used that or a similar name, F123 is an add on for both Firefox and Chrome.  I haven't used it.  I suspect that oddities encountered are the result of the add on but, without testing, that's just my suspicion.  I don't like the Chrome interface but in terms of working with web pages, I've found browse mode to work just about the same as in firefox and Internet Explorer.  Occasionally, there will be a difference, such as one screen-reader reading different text on a control because it's looking at different text in the control, but in general, I find that browse mode is browse mode. 

 

You can turn the add on offf in Chrome and still leave it installed.  It's been a long time since I've played with this, but if you want to experiment and if someone else doesn't give the procedure, I can look again.

First, it may help if instead of just saying "weird quirks" if you can tell us what specifically those things are, so we can have a better feel for how to assist.

Second, did I perhaps miss something here? I thought F123 was a really old, and all be it also, very dead last I looked, distro of Linux that was made specifically for the blind. And before anyone gets OT asking me, no, I don't know if the packages included with it would be up to date, nor how far a sudo apt[get update would take you. I don't even know if apt is included. It might use either yum, or pacman. Anyway, that's not for this list though, so I digress. Point is, it's pretty old, but as far as a Chrome extension with that name, I'm curious what this thing does.

It's so much easier to use the Firefox book marks search feature.

Hi

I use Chrome an have organised bookmarked sites into folders.  I’ve set Chrome to display the Bookmarks bar and this shows my folders.  You can access the bookmarks bar using shift+f6, arrow to the folder of choice, Open with down arrow, then use first letter navigation to load the bookmarked page of choice.

 

Alternatively, press alt, then spacebar, then b to open the Bookmarks sub-menu where the folders are accessible via first letter navigation as well as the bookmarks within the folders.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi,

What I like in Firefox is the bookmarks panel.

As my bookmarks are all organized in logical groups, I can browse sites in a sequence.

For example, I have a Daily folder and can navigate all the sites, in order, simply by going to the bookmark panel and going to the next bookmark with a simple stroke in the down arrow key.

Using Chrome to navigate in the order I want is very time consuming.

In addition, though I don't use history much, I still don't want it displayed as a web page when I do use it. 

 

I regularly use the book marks search feature in firefox and I find it so useful that I never organize book marks any longer.  If a book mark isn't conveniently available where it is, I use the search feature. 

 

As far as settings are concerned, I'm not sure if I have an opinion about which I prefer, the firefox layout or the Chrome web page layout.  But for me, history and book marks are important enough that I use firefox.

Gene,

 

This poses an interesting debate. I’ve also changed the subject line to better reflect.

 

You say you don’t like the Chrome interface. To be very clear/honest, neither did I at first, but the more I’ve been using Chrome, the more I’m growing to swear by it!

 

I’m just curious what exactly you don’t care for. Is it the fact that things are now mainly laid out in web views instead of multi tab dialogs? If so, that through me for a bit of a loop as well at first until I got used to it, so yeah. That would be a fair statement if so.

 

Chris.

NVDA Next 15037, Win 7 64 Bit, Firefox 64 Bit 59.0.2: browser gets stuck when loading larger websites

Eigeldinger Simon
 

Hi all,

 

I just saw this issue still exists:

Win 7 Pro 64 Bit

NVDA Next 15037

Firefox 59.0.2 64 Bit

 

Many larger websites are getting stuck and the browser doesn’t respond.

Anyone has seen that still happening?

An example page is for example the Heise Online Newsticker, which is a computer magazine:

https://www.heise.de/newsticker/

 

I actually thought this bug has been resolved?

 

Greetings and thanks,

Simon

No, it doesn't, because it's a server side protocol and one typically sets up one's filters and folders on the server side.  This can be done through many e-mail clients, too.

The whole point of IMAP is to have all the heavy lifting done in a single, centralized location so that all clients accessing the same account(s) will see exactly the same thing.

Re: Nvda and Vocalizer: how to buy just one Voice

Iván Novegil
 

In my opinnion, it depends on what exactly you need.

For instance, Code Factory's Vocalizer requires an internet connection at least once a month, and some users have complaint about the actiovation system. It also depends too much on external executables, more than Tiflotecnia's Vocalizer.

And I can ensure that vocalizer Driver v4 by Tiflotecnia is being developed. I don't know the conditions under it will be released, but the fact is that it exists.

NVDA problem after Windows log-in

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

I have a long standing issue over several NVDA versions where after entering my Windows password, NVDA fires up but only appears to be partially loaded.  I get voice output as I use windows commands to move around.  NVDA+n doesn’t work, so I accessed the log file using the system tray icon but I could not move around in the log file using arrow keys.  I loaded Outlook 2007, opened a message then tried to read the message body using NVDA+DownArrow but just a number was read out and when I repeated the command, the number increased by 5 each time.  I saved the log file, used Ctrl+alt+n to reload NVDA and all began working normally.  This happens all the time and on many occasions after reloading NVDA, there are 2 references to NVDA in the system tray overflow area.  The log file below shows a Watchdog_watcher warning of ‘Core frozen in stack’.  Can anyone shed any light on what is happening here?  I’m using windows 10 Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.371).

 

Cheers Chris
