Hello,

Yes Windows Defender is what used to be called MSE in earlier versions. There is not a tray icon as far as I know. If you want to get to it, open the start menu and type defender and it should be the first result. Also you can do a Windows key plus I and arrow to update and security. Once in update and security there is an option for Windows Defender.

Greg Wocher

It does seem to pick up threats, but as in any of them, one can never know what they miss. Many people seem to have some malware run once solutions as well to double check how the main one is working.

This leads me to ask one question. In Windows 10, it says its using Windows Defender. Is this what we used to call MSSE in previous versions of Windows, but the question is, although it seems to say its working, I have not yet found out how one actually administers it like we used to do in msse, ie I see no tray icon at all.

amis is good for that, dolphin easy reader 7 or 6 the codes work for

Well NVDA doesn't read your albums, songs, etc. Anything in your library. Readings in the iTunees Store and Apple music works fine.

DictationBridge: A Graduated Schedule

A question about Braille input tables

Mohammadreza Rashad
 

Hi dear list members. I'm a volunteer NVDA translater from Iran. I'm
also using NVDA as my favorite screenreader.
First of all, excuse me because of my poor English writing. Since it's
not my mother tongue.
Secondly, excuse me again about my probably-off-topic question.
You know that NVDA uses Liblouis Braille Translater to display
computer texts in Braille for us. Fortunately, Liblouis has Persian
(Farsi) braille table to output Persian text in Braille.
Regarding to what I wrote, Persian (Farsi) isn't listed in Braille
input tables. There are also other languages like Persian that not
listed in the Braille input tables.
I, as a blind Persian-speaker, want to add my language Braille table
into Braille input tables. and now my question is: how can I do this?
Is it necessary to add a separate Braille table for Farsi?
Thanks for your help in advance
Best wishes,
Mohammadreza Rashad

It's not saving my settings when hitting ok. As a matter and fact when i hit ok it doesnt clsoe the window, so soon as i hit escape it closes it and goes back to the previous settings before i made changes. Not sure why hitting enter on the ok button doesnt do anything.

Re: Anti-Virus

 

I run malwarebytes when I suspect.
To be honest I'd prefur proactive blockers that I have in ff like noscript and addblock + to actual reactive measures.
I have been through the security suites, false alarms and the like and by now everyone here should know my rants, for the rest that don't while I like security I will not have it over accessibility or stability as far as windows is stable and accessible.
Been there, done that.
I now have a stable 3 system network, and several remotes some of which users do not have the cash to afford to much.
If I actually had to buy protection and this is a big if, I would have to shoulder the cost mostly myself.
I can't do that, especially since one of my game investment companies is not producing, in fact if it continues I may have to cut ties with it entirely.
I have had supposed security companies require me to babysit my system, and have also had false alarms cause more dammage than malware has.
I know full well windows has had issues with these things to and there are slowdowns.\
One day I came to the end of my rope.
I'll take my chances, I know that this is a but stupid and dumb but after I went to msse, my babysitting dropped to near 0 in fact I can leave my remotes to selfupdate especially with 10 running just check them once a year for user issues.
Before I was fixing all the issues created by the security software and the users issues with it and the user issues and all the instabilities created by those issues.
In some cases I had to reformat to make sure it was at a level I could trace it back.
The issue never came up when I traced it on standard configuration.
If I do hit another security thing, I'd like a proactive rather than reactive solution well I will have a demand one maybe to, and cloud protection is a must.
Now One of the plans is to get a cloud server locally so maybe I can devote part of its resources to put a decent protection system in for when I am at home.
Or working at home but I have got used to not needing to worry about my security to much.
Not clicking things and being carefull does help to.
Obviously if you do not crack software and don't actually do to many crazy things you should be ok.

Re: Fly Outs?

 

it always does this first time automatically.
If you then try to go back to it by navigating to it again it will work, its done this on win7 to my guess is it is showing a status window but its not a window and since you can enter it again or right click it it doesn't matter much.
