nvda very laggy on some websites with latest chrome

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

On websites such as this one:

 

https://www.windowscentral.com/chime-surface-go-only-decent-10-inch-windows-tablet

 

NVDA is very very laggy almost to the point of the site is nearly unreadable and its frustrating to navigate the site. I am glad I have the cheap inexpensive jaws home use license and Microsoft narrator as backups when NVDA gets real laggy like this. But even so, could this please be fixed so NVDA is nice and snappy on websites?

 

Thanks

 

Josh

Re: skype accessibility

I can take them at their word. I am a user of the mac version and I have to say that it is grate. The windows version is grate to. Everything is accessible and actually a lot faster than skype 7. See my anchor page and m tiny review of skype on windows as of maybe a few weeks ago. I love it.

Re: can't get to my music file folder

Richard Wells
 

Rosemarie: the music folder can be found here: C:\Users\User Name\Music and, of course, replace "user" name" with the name of your logged in user. Another way to get straight to it is to press WINDOWS-KEY+R, type: "music" (without the quotes and press enter.

Hi, everyone,

 

I don't know why but for some weird reason I can't find my music file folder. I don't know if it's something in NVDA or not. When I do a search for music and hit enter, all it shows is groove music but nothing else. This didn't happen in earlier versions of windows. I called the microsoft disability line and they couldn't fix the problem either. Why is this happening?

 

Thanks for your helpp in advance.

Re: Getting to Music, Photos & video files

Gene
 

But none of this should matter.  The point of Windows is to allow you to get to things like this very quickly not dependent on knowing where they are.  In Windows 7, I can't discuss how Windows 10 is organized, if you open the start menu, then tab once, you are in a list.  You can down arrow and find documents and music.  You can also use first letter navigation and type d or m. 
 
If the start menu isn't working properly, you may need to know where they are to open them using Windows Explorer.  I don't know how many Windows 7 users know about this, and I also suspect that Windows 10 has a similar interface.

Getting to Music, Photos & video files

Brian K. Lingard
 

NVDA    Dear Chris & List:

 

I believe my music, video & photo files are in:

C:\users\username\documents\music

With the last directory name changed for video or photos.

 

Documents sub-directory appears to be at the same level as downloads or possibly a sub-folder of downloads.

Brian

Re: skype accessibility

 

If there was one time that Microsoft kind of listens to my feedback, is when I reported an issue in the iOS version of Skype where, I think, VoiceOver is not reading what I'm typing in the message edit box. That was fixed, after a couple of updates.

Re: can't get to my music file folder

 

Running and typing music should always get you to that folder unless you changed your location.

if not go to c:\users

find your username and then your music folder

Ofcause go and hit winkey and I, go to storage search for this in settings search and see where stuff actually goes, I have for example on the workstation because of its 128gb ssd, all documents, music and other videos and data pictures, etc on my data hdd and not on the system.

If this is the case you can change your location of your files using  simple comands from explorer.

I agree with you.
If a person has an iPhone, the Twitter app especially, and even the Face Book app, works very well with voice over.
