That is good to know, I would have spelled it wrong too. This is why I need to use the spell by character more often. Thanks for the tip!

Re: Dropbox innaccessibility again

If you use an older portable version of Firefox, you can use Webvisum with it.  You would use the portable version for sites that require captchas and the current version or the current ESR version for other browsing, assuming you want to use firefox for your main browser..

this
would be unlikely.

As Brian asked, is your user account standard or administrator? Could
you
give us more information, such as operating system being used, work or
home
computer, is yours the only account on the computer etc.

The process I would use to assign a shortcut key is:
Select desktop icon
Press alt+enter to open properties
Tab to the shortcut key control and press the shortcut letter alone,
the
CTRL+Alt part of the command is added automatically by Windows
Tab to OK and press enter.

If you get an error after pressing OK, please give full details

I can share a folder, I right click it in the dropbox folder and select
share. In the window coming up I select write or read only in the dropdown
then I enter an email address and tab to the comment edit field, enter some
comments and tab to the Enter and share button. That's it for me, the folder
is shared and a message is send to the email I entered.

Well, first of all I need to know some things, such as which browser are you using when you tried to save the pic.
But assuming you're using Firefox, that's what I use...
Before downloading the pic you must choose to see it in a full size. You'll be able to find it tabing in the page that opens with the comments and reactions about the� post.
So, after you're in full size pic screen, you should be able to save it as a pic on itself.

Yes Firefox of all sorts always does this on my windows 7 machines, so I'm
surprised you only just got it. if you are running 64 bit windows I use
waterfox now as this seems not to suffer from this. At some point in the
past, Firefox did something that momentarily drove up processor core usage
when you go to a new page or launch it in the first instance. this seems to
randomly create a situation for nvda where it sees no change straight away.
often you will find that merely opening a menu and closing it then presents
you with the new content. in64bit Waterfox this seems never to happen.
It is supposedly the same code as Firefox before Quantum so why its so
much better could be because its only available in a 64 bit version and
hence the code is better optimised for multi processors. That is just a
guess.

Re: NVDA was working fine until this morning when I tried to update

Daniel Hawkins
 

My computer at work have this problem. For the past year, everytime there is a update, NVDA crashes. Then either I use Narrator to reinstall NVDA or I use JAWS to reinstall. But before I do that, i uninstall NVDA under Apps and features in Windows 10.

Someone have mentioned that when you uninstall NVDA and uninstall it’s files, how would you go about doing that? When i reinstall NVDA, all my addons and settings are still there. So, i know it is not a complete wipe. If there is any directions to completely remove NVDA, I would love to know how to do it. Thanks!

Then when it cam up with a dong noise as obviously nvda was not installed fully, I ran a portable copy from another folder, then I manually removed the exe files from the nvda folder in program files (x86) and reran the update file and  boom all is well.
As has been said before often if there is something on the machine which screws up an install, say a file that needs to be deleted but is not from an older copy, then all sorts of random things happen.
Its seldom the end of the world. Moral, when you are happy with a working version of nvda. Create a portable version in another folder on your hard drive, go there with explorer and create a shortcut to the  main exe file or use a batch file in that folder and make a shortcut to that. I published my batch file a day or so back as it makes sure any running copy of nvda shuts down before running it again from the portable version.

I was able to get help getting my downloaded copy of NVDA installed.
Things seem to be working ok now.  Thanks to all for their
suggestions.

Hi Joshua


Afteryou downloaded a copy of nvda then clicked on it to install it to
your pc was it after it said it was installing it went quiet? I can not
remember if nvda says wait or in the latest versions there is no sound
until it is installed then you will hear nvda start up again and it is
ready to use.


I wonder if a UAC screen came up? and was not in focus for nvda to read
out? In this case use the alt key + letter Y if it comes up.

If it is not in focus use the alt + tab key to bring it into focus.


Your anti virus could be blocking it but would if it was me reinstall
nvda again.


If you want to see what is happening and nvda is not speaking some times
also using narrator to see what is happening helps. but if nvda and
narrator are running togeher for 2 long it can drive you a little crazy
but once nvda is installed you can turn off narrator.


It just depends where the speech stops. Are you still getting sound from
the computer? or do you have 2 sound cards?

Hi to all.  This morning when I tried to update my NVDA something went
wrong I think.  I heard the program shut off, then turn on again and
when I thought it was installing I lost all sound.  I downloaded the
newest 2018 version of NVDA from the website and tried to install it.
Well, I had other speech on and my speech just stopped.  I don't know
what I should do.  I'd rather not go back to jaws, but I don't know
why my NVDA isn't working correctly.  I'm afraid to try and reinstall
NVDA again.

Hi All,





I am using the latest windows 10 and nvda. I use the zera one core voice as
my default voice. My edge question is when I use read aloud on a web page
can I use zera as my default voice? I have that voice set in narrator.
When I use it it uses one of the male voices. Thanks for any help.




Dropbox innaccessibility again

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

I wanted to share a folder today, but it seems on the current version this dialogue no longer works with nvda either. it just is a blank page saying its the shaere with another user item, but just like the preferences and the delete from all machines and devices one its totally empty of any controls that read at all.

Anyone care to comment?
If its also happening in windows 10 maybe we can write en masse to Dropbox to get them to correct this.

Hi Nevzat
If the desktop icon was correctly created, the "Start in" field will be filled in already. You just need to tab to the next field which is the shortcut key, then just press the letter you want to use (ctrl+alt will be added by Windows), tab to OK and press enter.

Cheers
Chris

Hi


If it is just asigning the shortcut after you have gone into the
properties tab down to shortcut and asign one.


I think you can only use alt + ctrl + a letter like J for jaws or
another letter.


Make sure you save the settings.

Hi all,

I solved the problem by going to Control Panel and User accounts. But
my problem with assigning a shortcut key to an icon on the desktop
still persists. I press alt+enter to go to properties for the shortcut
I have a problem what to write in the "start in" edit field. The
desktop icon in question is JAWS.
I thank you all for your responses.

Hi Nevzat
Only an administrator account can change a standard account to an
administrator account. That is why I asked if there are any other accounts
on the computer. If there are no other accounts, let me know and I'll give
you details of a different method of solving the problem.

You can check if there are any other accounts by pressing Windows+i to open
Settings, then press enter on Accounts. Tab to the list of topics and arrow
down to Family and other people and press enter. Tab to the list of other
account names and types on the machine and see if there is a user account
with administrator privilidges. If there is, get the person to log on using
that account, then they could use this settings process to edit your account
details and change it from standard to administrator.

Cheers

Chris, yes, I get an error message saying I need to have administrator
permission. My operating system is Windows 10. I believe I have
standard user account. I tried to change user account and typed my
name and I was told that user account already exists. If I type
administrator would it change to that?

Hi Nevzat
I would have thought you should be able to assign shortcuts as these are
personal to your account and don't affect other users, so should not
require
admin priviledges. If you are using a work computer it maybe that a
corporate group policy is in effect which denies the capability but this
would be unlikely.

As Brian asked, is your user account standard or administrator? Could
you
give us more information, such as operating system being used, work or
home
computer, is yours the only account on the computer etc.

The process I would use to assign a shortcut key is:
Select desktop icon
Press alt+enter to open properties
Tab to the shortcut key control and press the shortcut letter alone, the
CTRL+Alt part of the command is added automatically by Windows
Tab to OK and press enter.

If you get an error after pressing OK, please give full details

Cheers
Chris

Hi Group,

I am trying to assign shortcut keys to icons on the desktop, but it
won't go through as I am told I have no administrative privileges.
Using NVDA how do I get administrative privilege on my computer?
Your response will be greatly appreciated.

If this is just a new version then go back to the old one and suspend
updates. I'm thinking oof doing this with dropbox at the moment.

No it will not. The chrome thing is what we use on the mac. I think I tried
