On running firefox I find that there is that youtube thing on the screen, and somewhere about half way through loading the whole computer is slowed down hugely until it grinds to a halt. I suspect some terrible script at play and it could well also be the cause for the non loading of the google part as well if the machine simply is slowed down so much it misses the response from the site. Certainly on an I5 with 8 gig of ram and an ssd drive this performance is very unusual on the web.

Speaking of which, I downloaded off the page Joseph gave, and it installed version 1.0, thus when I went to install it, NVDAreported that version 1.0 was already installed, asking if I wanted to install it anyway? I wonder then what's the new version, and is it available from the Stable download option?

Note i tried to send this to the list owner with the link on this email but it bounced, so
Here is what I wrote.
...
You will note I merely posted a comment about a podcast and only one other
message more or less saying that whatever you felt it was your own opinion
and I was not going to turn it into a long wandering my xx is better than
yours. We got into one of those about syynths a while ago, and nobody ever
seems to learn the lesson that personal views are no going to be shared by
others.

Anyway, I pushed off from the thread and to be honest I have this little
rule called junk which I update from time to time that throws threads that
have outlived their purpose into my junk folder!
I was rather interested in what you mean about being part of windows 10 or
something though. If we consider recent figures of windows usage published
it seems that windows 7 still has 47 percent of the market, mainly due to
corporate use and there are many here who use it.

Subject: [nvda] Decorum on this list, NVDA Vs. JAWS Debate #adminnotice


Hello everyone,

I took the time to read all over 50 messages that were sent on the NVDA and
JAWS debate. Here are some thoughts, and please forgive me for coming down
a bit hard on this, but if you read this all the way through, you may
understand why. Please also understand that what I am about to write is not
my personal opinion necessarily, but it is my role as an admin of this list
to make the points I am about to make.

1. This list is for the discussion of NVDA and, specifically, to help out
one another in our learning and knowledge of NVDA. This group exists
because its members want it to do so, although I feel that it should be
tied up into the Windows 10 group, but there you have it. This group does
not exist to bash others, to disparage companies, or to flame and attack
others for their preferences. While a limited amount of comparison may be
valid when attempting to request a new feature or trying to understand how
NVDA does things as compared to another screen reader, what I saw today in
the thread was nothing short of a disgrace coming from list members.
2. It doesn't matter what Eric or anyone else from Freedom Scientific did
or did not say about NVDA, we the NVDA community can choose how to respond,
and I urge all of us to respond in a way that does not have us looking
clownish to the outside world, and to new members. This community is
public, and it is archived. Let it be a learning and teaching tool, not a
platform for bashing.
3. Your personal opinions of what is better or not better are irrelevant on
this list, as are mine. You have chosen to participate on an NVDA list.
Contribute to this list in a way you see fit, but do not attack other
people, companies, products, or anything else just because your opinion is
that NVDA is the best. No product is the best for everyone, no product is
perfect, and no product, person, or entity should be attacked in the way
that VFO has been in this group.
4. If a list member posts a controversial thread, you do not have to
respond. If you want to respond, at least take the time to research your
position by listening to the podcast that was presented, and then state
facts about what was said, without drawing conclusions about what you think
was implied.

This community can be welcoming, inviting, and safe for everyone. It can be
an example of how all people can get along. It can be an example of how we
choose not to flame companies or individuals, as so often happens on
blindness and non-blindness e-mail lists and forums. We can also be
considerate of those around the world who have limited bandwidth by not
sending dozens of messages to the list about a topic that really should not
exist on this list in the first place.

Finally, I have seen some rumblings about eloquence on this list over the
past few days. That word used to be banned on this list, however I was
talked into removing that ban. Still, Eloquence is illegal unless it is
purchased through legal channels. There is, for instance, a version of
Eloquence which is sold by the ATGuys and sold and packaged by CodeFactory.
This can be discussed if there are bugs with it, or if we are pointing a
new user to that legal channel, however I do not wish to read about any
discussion of illegal add-ons, or free Eloquence on this list. Any user
knowingly posting about illegal software will receive a ban from posting
until I become satisfied that they will no longer post about such things in
future. If you believe a user has been posting about eloquence, or if you
see a message that goes against what this community stands for, please
bring it to the attention of the admin and moderator of this list, and we
will action it.

If you disagree with my message, or if you have a problem with anything I
have said, please send me an e-mail privately, or to
nvda+owners@nvda.groups.io and I will take the time to speak with you about
your concerns. Please do not post your comments to the list at large. Also,
please end the thread about the comparison between NVDA and JAWS. If the
thread has not died down by 12:00 AM Eastern time this evening, I will lock
the thread.

Thank you for being a part of this wonderful NVDA family, and here's hoping
we can move forward together in making this place all that it can be for
one another, and for all the visitors, new members, companies, agencies,
and anyone else who may be reading the traffic

The fake clipboard addon doesn’t know if the operation, copy, paste, etc. actually occurred. It just announces something because the command is given. The clipboard speak add on knows when an operation occurs. So if it announces something, that is because it detects the operation. It won’t announce something if nothing occurred.

In the past, clipboard speak would cause problems in one program or another. I don’t remember details but I think it interfeered in some operations in Word. Also, in a Youtube downloading program I use, it caused problems. In these cases, the problems didn’t necessarily have anything to do with what happened when you used commands like copy and paste, but if I removed the add on, the problems stopped. This was in a beta version and these problems may have been solved.

From what I recall from the first version it attempts to be context specific and tell you bits of extra info based on what you aare doing. In the original version I had to stop using it as it was extremely slow and kept causing Word to complain about low memory when I used it.

Hi

 

The easiest way to find what the keys are on your screen with nvda is to use the nvda key + one on the main querty keyboard. it will put nvda input help on mode press any keys to find what they are then once you located it turn if off with nvda key + 1 again.

 

hope this helps.

The image itself is copied to the clipboard and you can paste it in an email (depending on your email client it may paste it in the body, or as an attachment.

 

If you press WINDOWS+PRINTSCREEN it will automatically save the image to your "Pictures" library in the "Screenshots" folder, called screenshot.png for the first one, then screenshot(2).png for the second and so on.

Yes, I think it would be useful for the NvAccess site to have a list of available scripters and their locations, and then state agencies would have a resource to contact for such things.
I work for a state agency, and I hate it when people bash state agencies without knowing how things work for such things.
Granted, some staff who don't use screenreaders can't possibly remember all the solutions, although they should, they don't, so they think only of the one solution that is most common.
But I have brought up the topic of NVDA as a solution in the workplace, and then the issue of scripting comes up.

I now use waterfox as its just more reliable than Firefox and all my old add ons work in it, it also imported all the firefox bookmarks without any issues.

Subject: [nvda] Problem with Firefox - maybe use Edge instead?


Good day list,



This is going to be a quite lengthy email. I will describe my problem as
best as I can. I'm running the latest version of NVDA as well as the laters
version of Windows 10.



I downloaded Firefox extended version and installed it on my computer. I
saved quite an amount of bookmarks. Last week I did something wrong and
Firefox wasn't my default browser anymore. I went to my list of default
programs in settings, but couldn't find Firefox there. Not even my sighted
wife didn't find it. I went on Mozilla's page and the solution I found was
to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it again - which I did. After
reinstalling, I ended up with a folder on my desktop called "Old Firefox
data."



Now I get to the problem. Before I uninstalled Firefox, I got 36 bookmarks
saved. After the reinstallation, I bookmarked 3 new webpages. They are not
listed among the 36 bookmarks. However, when I hit enter on "show all
bookmarks", then I find the last three bookmarks. Only those three are in
"show all bookmarks". All my other bookmarks is outside that folder.



Then I tried Edge. But when I open Edge and press the alt-key to open the
menu of Edge, nothing happens.



Can somebody help me with the Firefox issue? Or is it better to start using
Edge? I personally find Edge more rresponsive. On the other hand, all my
bookmarks are in Firefox.



Any help would be apreciated.



Kind regards

Morné

Which begs the question, that has bothered me for some time.
What is the difference between rss, and podcasting. It seems to me that the idea of checking a page for an update to certain pages via some service like feedburner or whatever is common to both, its just that rss is web sites, and podcasts are other media types. I am sure on some applications I have seen podcast fetchers that do rss as well, and wandered if anyone know if this was a practical thing to try?

Hi,

I believe Edge does not support RSS at this time, although I haven't looked
deeply in Edge for a few days.

Cheers,

Hi Joseph,

Please any idea how to use RSS in Edge? I am directing the question to you
as I haven't gotten any suggestions on the topic. Edge is becoming more
responsive with NVDA and loads much faster. I am considering making it my
default browser.

Blessings

Subject: [nvda] Windows 10 App Essentials add-on: compatible with wxPython
4, version 18.10 to require NVDA 2018.3 or later, other Win10 goodies



Hi all,



Before I go any further, I'd like to announce that Windows 10 App Essentials
add-on is compatible with wxPython 4.



Version hopping for the third time this year: if I'm not mistaken, NVDA
2018.3 may include several important features from Windows 10 App Essentials
add-on into NVDA Core. Due to this, starting from add-on version 18.10
stable, NVDA 2018.3 or later will be required.



The following are features migrating from this add-on to the NVDA screen
reader:



* Basic support for IUIAutomation6 interface (Windows 10 Redstone 5).
* NVDA will recognize and read contents of more dialogs in Windows 10
(especially on Redstone 5) and various apps, including dialogs found in
various universal apps.



In addition to this, recent changes for Windows 10 ecosystem support
include:



* In Microsoft Edge, aria-roledescription text is recognized.
* Espeak NG will read emoji characters.



Possible features to be included if pull request review passes:



* Native support for various modern input features, including emoji
panel, dictation, hardware input suggestions, and cloud clipboard. If the
review (currently in progress) passes, this will mean you don't have to use
Windows 10 App Essentials add-on to use these features, as NVDA itself will
support them out of the box.
* In Microsoft Edge, more notifications, including aria-role=alert
will be announced (review has been requested).



Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph
