If people want to have these sorts of not even remotely on topic conversations, we should have a chat list.  I didn't say anything until now because I don't want to micromanage the list nor to pounce on people when expressing condolences.  But this thread could go on quite a bit longer.  At this point, I am taking no action but if the thread continues much more, I shall ask that it be terminated.

Re: Drag and Drop with NVDA

 

Arianna & mk,

          Thanks to you both.  I'll play a little more but I'm still stuck, and part of that may be because I see and don't have the mental mapping for "where to drop" as it should be.  I can't figure out, if all one is trying to do is move a column to the left of where it is, you know how you're at the correct "to the left" position for the drop.  When you can literally see this the whole "drag and drop" operation makes instant sense, but that's because it's almost entirely driven by being able to see it.

I'll have to play more to see what I can come up with.  If I can get focus on the actual column headers under Thunderbird that will be a major achievement!

Re: NVDA and Itunes 12.4.0.119

That's craziness! Whoever created I tunes should keep it accessable for both
apple and windows computers. I've used it on my room mate's I pad and it's
okay. That is why I never installed it om my 7 box. I had it there before
and had trouble with it and I uninstalled it. I had it on my second xp box.

You know, If Apple is giving PC users I Tunes they should keep it accessible
for all screen readers! Do you think it's truly meant for Apple computers
and I devices? If that's the case, they shouldn't release it to windows
computers. If they do they should make it accessable for all apple and
windows computers. I think it's craziness to have it released to windows
being accessable then suddenly not. Do you think with ten I tunes is not
good or is it for all. Like windows 7 and ten? Or, is it because I Tunes had
been updated and it's the way it is?

Re: Drag and Drop with NVDA

mk360
 

Hi,

I route mouse to object cursor with insert / (numpad slash) so if I need to drag some things I place the object navigation to the object that I need to move, press insert /, next shift / to lock the left mouse clic, next I move the object navigation cursor to the place where I need to move the object I selected, move again the mouse to the object cursor with insert /, and unlock the left mouse clic with shift /. If all worked correctly the objec will be moved to the new location, it depends if the object can be moved with the mouse obviously.

I don't know if my english can be sufficient to explain this... if it can't be understood I can try again :D

mk.

Re: Weather+ NVDA add-on required

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,


I figured out how to add/update cities from my old installation of the Weather Add On to the current system.  There is no separate edit field for adding cities neither is there a list of countries/states/cities as in the old system.  However, Under NVDA/preferences/Weather Add On/manage city IDs/list of existing cities, that list of existing cities (the cities you have configured in your own program) that listing is an edit combo box.  If you type in city names in the format: name,State or country, you will get some matches.  You then tab once to the test button and press space bar.  If the find is valid, you will hear a beep and the city will appear in the edit combo box listing.  If the city/state or country is not valid, you will get a message as such. 


This seems to me a clumsy way of adding or editing existing cities, but it does work.  I had over 100 cities in the old system, so I am slowly updating the information, city by city.

If the sound recorder program in Windows 10 is like the one in Windows
7, it's almost worthless. In the Windows 7 program, you can't edit
and it records in the MP3 format as I recall. I know you can't choose
formats and I know it’s a lossy format. Whether ogg or MP3, its so
limited that it's more like a toy.
I don't recall if it even has a pause button and if it resumes
recording or overwrites the file if you stop and start it. What
program did you used to use? If you used the old XP sound recorder,
that may still work in Windows 10. I got it to work in Windows 7. I
can suggest programs to use to create a podcast file and edit it. For
example, you might use a program I have to record the podcast file and
then edit with Mp3 Direct Cut. Both programs will produce MP3 files
but, for reasons I won't go into now, it's better to use one program I
can discuss for editing and MP3 Direct Cut for editing.

it by using the search feature which you can access by pressing
ctrl+escape. It is accessible.

Hello once more,

Thank you for your responses, for I enjoyed reading them a lot!

Further specs: My Web browser is the latest version of Firefox (even
though a sighted friend told me that Google Chrome was better), my
default media player is Windows Media Player 12 (not The Groove Music
from Windows 10), and Gmail is the only e-mail source I use. Since
Windows 10 doesn't come with the Sound Recorder program like how
previous versions of Windows does, I'm missing it a lot because I use
it for Podcasting and other projects. Can any Windows 10 user
recommend any sound-recording program that would work well with it +
NVDA? I'd appreciate your feedback so much.

Just FYI: I have no usable vision in both eyes to read large print so
I'm totally dependent on NVDA to do all my reading out loud for me.

Take care, and have a good day.

sincerely,

Jolene.

Re: nvda using windows 7 installation problem

I don't recall out of the box, or cardboard packet that Windows 7 was very good to install without sighted help, unless you used a script or custom install that allowed drivers to be loaded for the sound first.

I certainly had to get a man in.

Yes. I had hopedto also make UAC completely off, but even with it at zero it still has some things that are blocked.

I was thinking about the registry hacking myself, but one should not have to resort to that. Much like in Firefox's extended configs, it should be possible with dire warnings to configure the machine to be open and easy to get at everything.

Well to be honest, sound wise I did through a forum find the reg hacks to get login off shutdown and unlock sounds to actually like appear.
However while yes they have sfx, no they won't be active.
I don't know why this is.
But there is a way to in appevents of the hkey current user change all the sounds with 0s in them to 1s and they will show as events with their sounds and you can play them.
There must be something more to activating these events and I have not found what that is.

Well, maybe not found it yet then.

The create shortcut..... windows cannot create a shortcut here, would you like it on the desktop was very handy in xp and 7.

It just seems to be far less open than it needs to be. the one strength of windows was that you could use many ways to get to a place if for example one of the interim screens was inaccessible, but that is far less easy to do in 10. It could be of course that 8 was the same, but I never bothered to install that update.

One oddity with nvda seems to be these alerts and dialogues that pop up with no apparent indication for the user, like if you want to move a folder from somewhere directly into the program files and its 32 bit counterpart. It appears from nvda that its just not happening but if you alt tab about in nvda you find this little window that wants you to click a choice as the task was suspended. How come this is not in the foreground?

This is what I mean by not being allowed in some cases, and when, say a folder is not accessible one might expect to hear a sound, like you do when trying to access other users areas etc, but in this case one does not, and having looked at the sound scheme, I cannot for the life of me see any way to make these shy windows make a noise!

You've answered your own question, largely, in your thread title. One can set up desktop shortcuts quite easily to virtually any app or application (settings are a different matter). If you prefer the old Control Panel for most settings it's available and you can put a shortcut to it on your desktop.

I am annoyed that the "Send to -> Desktop (Create Shortcut)" method is no longer supported from the search results, but the extra step of "Open file location" (which opens the folder containing the program/app, with said program/app already selected) then doing the "send to -> desktop (create shortcut)" works just fine.

The "This PC" file explorer window (for lack of a better way of putting it - it's largely the same as the old "My Computer" window) shows your drives and you can do layout tweaking there.

Yes but I want them in a list as per a folder, not in some kind of tree view. This seems almost impossible to fix in this so called easy to access system.

Gene, thank you for changing the subject line from "Re: New Member" to
this one.
As I was reading the responses and the responses TO responses, I got
so confused that, in the end, I asked myself,

"What does sound recorders have to do with new member?"

Thank you so much for the change of subject!

sincerely,

Jolene.
