Hello The Wolf,

You mentioned making a linux box. I'd like to do that with one of my old ones. Can you point me to stuff to read so I can learn how to do it? Thanks.

Re: Talking about Tor: Is there any tutorial to use the programme?

Mallard <mallard@...>
 

lol! I wouldn't believe there's a virus in the browser... rather, I'd think there's a tendency on the part of some antivirus software to see a lot of open sourcr or somehow "non-standard" software as potentially harmful.

360 Total Security, which I'm using as an antivirus, kept blocking NVDA, and it took me a good deal oftime and effort to make it believe that NVDA is no malware...


Thanks Gene for your version of Tor. No hurry. Upload whenever you have time.

Hi,

Yes, tor browser updates are automatic. You can, to my knowledge, disable them in the same way as from Firefox itself, tools, options, advanced, updates, never check for updates.
I hope that's of use.

I'm not sure whether it can be repaired at the TOR browser end, but
they do seem to be aware of it. It is still possible to download the
older Tor Browser 7.x and then rename the updater.exe file so that
updates don't happen. Obviously, this is not a permanent or reasonable

Hi all,
Just yesterday, Tor browser was updated to 8.0 and after the upgrade,
NVDA became totally inaccessible with the browser.
I am not sure if this is the problem that Tor has upgraded the
underlying Firefox to Esr 60.2 and any possible fix for this at this moment?

Re: latest nvda that works on windows xp?

Interestingly, older downloads are redirecting to SourceForge now, I don't recall them ever doing that previously.

On 9/8/2018 5:06 AM, Antony Stone wrote:
There's a general formula you can use to work out the download link for any
version of NVDA from 2013.1 onwards.

To download release number N (where N is between 1 and 4) from year YYYY
(where YYYY is 2016, 2017, 2018 etc), the download link is:

https://www.nvaccess.org/download/nvda/releases/YYYY.N/nvda_YYYY.N.exe

Simply substitute the year and release number you want into the above URL and
you can download whichever version you want.

I don't know about getting a version earlier than 2013.1, but I seriously
doubt anyone really needs those.

Re: keyboard layouts

Gene
 

I really dislike the laptop layout.  If you look at the commands, using the quick keys reference in help, you can see what you think.  My opinion, after looking a bit but not that much because I really didn't like what I saw, is that the desktop layout is much more consistent and logical at least in review commands and probably in many other places.  Even if it is more consistent and logical in some or many places, I won't learn an inconsistent screen review layout and probably some or many other things when all I have to do is buy a cheap USB numpad and be able to use the desktop layout on any laptop.

Re: keyboard layouts

Antony Stone
 

I would suggest that if you have a numeric keypad, the desktop layout is
simpler and provides access to slightly more features.

However, in the same way that "the best camera in the world is the one you
have with you" and "the best programming language is the one you know how to
use", I would say that the NVDA keyboard layout which is easiest to use is the
one you know best and can work with most efficiently.

This is one of those subjective questions where different people will have
different opinions, which may not apply to you in the same way.

Re: FireFox Issues Discussion

The settings interface has been changed in newer versions of Chrome.  I have worked with the new interface a little to get a sense of how useable it is.  It is not well implemented for a blind keyboard user in some places in terms of seeing how to use it without experimentation.  But it can be used and, once you have instruction, it isn't difficult, just not intuitive, in certain places.

Hello Members,

I just read through the recent digest with exchanges between Gene and
Shaun.

The reply by Shaun best describes what occurred. I was at
dictionary.com and had just sent in an email request to subscribe.
Moments later, I heard a beep tone and was informed FireFox was
updating. It took a few moments.
I then had the option to change search engines, or do not change
search engines, and I chose do not change.
I was somewhat in surprise at all this occurring.
I googled something about updates and learned that malicious updates
are on the rise as Gene indicated.
Scrolling through the program menu, my browser was now identified as
just FireFox not Mozilla FireFox.
Settings were changed.
Keyboard functions such as backspace, hyphen, period, comma, were not
read when pressed. My auto-signature was not read when in email. I had
to forward tab once when going to a website to access the link wanted.
Shall I say more?

I later changed the update criteria in advance settings after
restoring my computer to an earlier time. Now, updates are told to me
when they want to occur and I either say yes or ask me later.

I cannot ascertain for certain if this is Mozilla or a hack.
Nonetheless, It appears Mozilla as known, is returned. It's supposed
update occurred in November 2017.
No background service is doing any installations for me under the
current criteria. I'll be darn careful and use my MS Security
Essentials regularly.

i use it, but it cant open some computer websites unfortunately!
also, i mean that firefox needs addon for javascript for making exception.
for example: i wish to turn off javascript for all websites, but allow
it only for four sites!
how can i do this in firefox without installing addon?

and start going down the page, and I get an untrusted radio button, a
temp trusted radio button, and so on. When I get through all of the
stuff for one site, if I keep going down I get another untrusted radio
button, and so on. So I know that's for a different site, but I haven't
seen a way to find out what all of the sites are that it wants to have
permissions for. To be fair though, I haven't really done a lot of
looking around to find out if they show up. So if anybody figures it
out, do let us all know.

Re: Antivirus, antimalware and nvda remote helper inject

 

nvda helper remote is not nvda remote addon!
its one part of nvda that i believe it handles using browsers for its
users and maybe has other functionality that i dont know.

Microsoft Security Essentials is still working on windows 7 here. I also
manually update and run superantispyware. A word of warning though, as the
latest installer seems to need screen navigation to find the I Agree button

when the text is displayed, and you need to launch the product from the
try for it to be in focus for normal nvda usage. I suspect they have messed

up the mssa somewhere when it auto launches or is started from the desktop
though of course screen nave and nvda and keypad enter still action stuff
OK, its just a bit awkward.

Which antivirus and antimalware should I use for windows 7? Whenever I
close or restart nvda, nvda shows nvda remote helper injecter has already
died or not responding. I don't have remote add-on.

Re: FireFox Issues Discussion

You can't do it in Firefox without using an add-on.  You can in Chrome.  I'll have to take notes before I write the steps.  I assume you want to know.  If you don't, let me know.  If I don't hear from you, I'll make notes and sent instructions.

Oh, that's a much nicer link format than the version I knew about.

Thanks,

Before you go through the time and trouble of putting Windows 7 on the
machine, while XP is on it, find out the specifications of the machine
such as the chip speed and amount of RAM. If you don't know the minimum
requirements for Windows 7, let us know what you find out. The machine
may be able to run Windows 7 well or reasonably well, but it well may not
be able to.

As far as the latest version to run with XP, it doesn't matter at all for
what you are trying to do. Here is a link to the download page of the
latest version that runs in XP. You can run any version of NVDA as a
portable version without even having the program create a portable
version. When the installer runs and you have speech, you will be given
choices such as, install, create portable version, or keep running.
Select the keep running option.
