Hi Zahra,

Sorry, but I can't do this, because I didn't know this player.
Yours sincerely

I really didn't understood what do you meant.
Anyway, have you already tried to save the page? You can do it simple pressing CTRL+S when you have opened the desired link.
Hope this helps

All a link is is a look up for the page address after all, that is why tinyurl and others work so waell.

Re: Firefox Quantum?

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

In my case, it seems not to be the add ons, as this was the first thing I tried. I think that Firefox can max out the processor core and cause nvda to miss the fact that page loading has finished.
Waterfox does not seem to do this, and its nothing to do with not being Quantum as it started happening before that at around version 45.

What add-ons are you using? This sounds like it could very well be an issue with an add-on. I would definitely try restarting Firefox in its safe mode (which is unrelated to Windows Safe Mode) and see if the issue persists. Take a look at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode

Re: Firefox Quantum?

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

Yes well, I find that for some reason firefox never seems to tell nvda its finished loading the page since way back in version45, well sometimes it will but most times hitting alt and esc suddenly reveals the page is in fact there. I now am using waterfox64 and I have no issues at all, so it has something to do with firefox. I think it clogs up the processor core that is running nvda making it not see the signal that the has loaded.

Re: More non reading problems in new dropbox on windows 7 with latest master snaps

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

Yes I think it was also the same person who reported my occasional lock up on nvda updates too. I do agree with no way for everyone else tactually get the problem it is going to be difficult to troubleshoot these issues.
I cannot at the moment think what it might be that has been changed.
Recently had to uninstall Google drive due to it crashing on start up a lot, but there is nothing out of the ordinary running on either system from what I can tell looking at the start up programs or even using autorun.
I can only think that maybe some obscure dll has become unregistered, but the tool in the current snaps is supposed to cover all of those.
At the moment these issues are mostly annoying but not game stoppers, bas I have no intention of doing any reformats etc, and indeed have tried taking computer back and forward with no actual changes in behaviour.

I suppose some odd behaviour from a driver might account for it as apart from the ssd the two machines are hardware wise very similar.

I'm not talking about the new shared components window. I don't know anything about that and we haven't gotten responses from anyone else about whether they see it.

Concerning the preferences tabs, it sounds suspiciously likely that you have done something in both machines that makes these things not work. I don't know what, an add on to something, running some sort of maintanence program, something. Why haven't we seen one other report about either of these problems and why, even when you specifically asked about the preferences in Drop Box, didn't one person report the same problem?

Hi. In addition to the preferences tab being totally blank on my two
machines running windows 7, a new window for shared folders seems to have
been invented that asks permission to delete from all devices when you
delete a file. However it just looks like a blank empty window, but
sometimes I can hear the content but I seemingly cannot know for sure I have
clicked the button as it seems not to have any kind of way to know where it
is.
Now some people on here say the preferences work, but they do not for me,
so could somebody look into this issue as I know dropbox is often used by
us.
If I have two machines one with the pro and one with home of windows 7 not
reading these screens in nvda, there are probably going to be others.
I have not had time to try older versions as yet, but before I start
ticketing I'd like to know if its nvda or dropbox.
Ta muchly.

Re: A security question about the dll tool

Mohamed
 

Are you referring to the COM registration fixing tool? If so, I'm pretty sure that all it does it write CLS IDs to the registry for accessibility related DLLs.

I see in the new RC3 of nvda 2018.2 that the dll registration tool is run on install  now. However if one puts a portable version on a stick and takes it to another computer at a library, and uses it portably, what would running the registration tool do when run?
I mean it could well be that security would stop it working at all but if it were allowed this would be a security risk.

Just wondered as I cannot test this scenario.

Of course I guess they could just ban anything running at all from a stick without prior permission I supplose.

Hi.  I am in a rather unique position because i get to experience both sides of money, accessible and inaccessible.  Here in Singapore, we have currency notes of different sizes and made of different materials.  $2, $5 and $10 are of different sizes and are made of plastic, $2 being the smallest and $10 being the biggest size of this sub group.  Then there

is the group of $50, $100, $500 and $1000 currency notes.  These are made of tough paper, again of different sizes.  It is easy to tell the diference between one denomination from the other once you get use to it.  On the other hand, I am married to a Filipina, and The Philippines Peso notes are all of the same size, no matter which currency, so i need guidance on that score when I am back in the philippines with wife and family.  Cheers!

Hi Kerryn,

 

If you can convince the powers that be in Trinidad to switch to all coinage rather than paper money, that would be the ideal thing to do.  Most blind people here in the United States have no difficulty with coinage.  The pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters are all differently rimmed and of different sizes and weights.  In the United States, we like our paper money.  There was great resistance to any change for large denominations than quarters.  However in a smaller country like Trinidad, you might have less resistance.  Good luck.

For those who have Google accounts, it's worth looking at Google Hangouts.  However, in order to be able to send/receive text messages to phones you also need to get a phone number from Google Voice, which is available only within the USA.  You can, however, make calls with Hangouts no matter where you are, I believe.

Re: accessible money

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

We have what I think is a really good system here in Canada. Coins for small denominations (up to two dollars), and $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. The new bills are made of a kind of plasticised paper that can still tear but doesn’t wrinkle easily and is somewhat water-resistant. The bills have tactile markings on them, that resemble full braille cells. You can detect the denomination by counting the number of cells on the bill. This works better, I think, than putting braille numbers on bills, because a single dot could easily be rubbed out, but the impression of a full cell usually remains intact.

Hi Kerryn,

 

If you can convince the powers that be in Trinidad to switch to all coinage rather than paper money, that would be the ideal thing to do.  Most blind people here in the United States have no difficulty with coinage.  The pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters are all differently rimmed and of different sizes and weights.  In the United States, we like our paper money.  There was great resistance to any change for large denominations than quarters.  However in a smaller country like Trinidad, you might have less resistance.  Good luck.
