HI Jean,

 

I don’t know of a program, I haven’t tried quickbooks yet, but, if you don’t find anything, I’d be happy to do your books for you. It’s a service my company provides, please feel free to contact me off list for more info. Best of luck in finding a program though!

I am still looking for a bookkeeping program that can be EASILY accessed by NVDA.  Quick Books would be my choice, but I don’t want to spend the money if it won’t work.

Is anyone using any kind of bookkeeping program that you can tell me about?

Thanks so much.

QuickBooks is somewhat accessible, with NVDA.

How much book keeping do you need ?

If you just need to manage checking accounts I would try “Ace Money Lite”.

Money Talks is a good serviceable checkbook register and check writing program. Much depends on how sophisticated your book keeping needs may be.

 

You can download a functional version for trial. It is self -voicing  but works well with screen readers as well.

Re: A friend needs info on screen readers history for her thesis

Gene
 

I've seen about four messages all agreeing on this subject.  I think this view is arbitrary and hasn't been logically defended.
 
If the device breaks you can't use it either.  Your Internet service is a monthly paid service.  Your electricity is also.  So is water, to give an unrelated example. 
 
This is completely arbitrary and I haven't seen any argument that is valid that supports this distinction and visceral dislike of subscription services as opposed to not owning, but licensing a product or service.  I only see two valid arguments and I consider one strong and one not very strong.
 
The strong argument is that if you don't intend to keep a program current, you can save enough money to amount to something by licensing it with one payment.  You pay for the program once and then you may be able to use it for years before you may have to upgrade it.
 
The not very strong argument is that if the subscribed program checks with the server to see if it is licensed on a schedule, if something goes wrong with the system, you may not be able to use it until the problem is solved.  That may happen but I don't see people not using electricity, phones, Internet, etc. when the same things could happen. 
 
My view is that the decision involves primarily which is cheaper.  Is it cheaper for someone who wants a current version to license or subscribe?  The same question for someone who doesn't want to upgrade except when necessary.

Re: Files not showing

Consider the most simple possibility first.  Someone who uses Windows 10 can tell you how to do this.  Set Windows to show hidden files.  perhaps the files became hidden when the update occurred.

Try searching for the files using Windows search feature.

Maybe they somehow did not end up where you expect.

Also refreshing the file explorer window with f5 sometimes seems to help. But that’s probably not going to help you as you say you already opened the explorer window to your new folder *after* copying the files.

 

You could try other things. Go to where you think the documents ended up on the c (or whatever) drive and check the properties. Does it show space used by the folder? If it says “0 bytes”, it’s possible the files did not even copy.

 

I’ve never had files physically disappear after a windows update, but it’s possible something is screwed up with the documents library. You should still be able to access the actual documents folder. Maybe open the run box and type in the path to your personal documents folder and see what happens. In my case it would be “c:\users\jm\documents”.

Re: addons

Adriani Botez
 

Hello,

if you want to find the most addons you can search on Github for "NVDA" and
you will find about 300 search entries where you can find every addon writer
and his addons. Many of them are not proven by the community and are not
posted on the international website. And many of them are source code which
has to be compiled with scons to generate an .nvda-addon file format.

But if you are a beginner I would advice you to stay with
addons.nvda-project.org because every addon is being proven in terms of
security and so on.

In fact, on apple you also stay on app store because unoficial app stores
can cause security issues.

Best

Since upgrading to windows build 1803, this dialog is no longer read fully
by NVDA. When it comes up, NVDA says the word pane and nothing else. Object
navigation will take you to the various controls, such as the list of
applications, but single clicking does not bring the list to focus so that
it can be arrowed through. Nor can I use object navigation itself to read
the list. When pressing NVDA+numpad-7 to try and switch to screen review,
NVDA says nothing and review mode is not switched.
Is this a known issue?

Hi,

Ah, this one – although the add-on did some important things in the past, some of those important ones are now part of NVDA.

Things Windows 10 App Essentials can do include:

  • Suppressing unnecessary notifications in Calculator.
  • Announcing more alerts in Microsoft Edge.
  • Fixing bugs here and there in Settings app.
  • Providing needed commands for Skype in older Skype releases.
  • Announcing suggestion count (not just sounds) in some cases.
  • Improved access to Weather app and reading forecasts.

 

Things transferred to NVDA:

  • Search suggestion sounds.
  • Reading live text in various apps.
  • Detecting and reading dialogs in universal apps.
  • Working with emoji panel.
  • Reading text from dictation panel.
  • Announcing hardware keyboard input suggestions.
  • Navigating cloud clipboard history/paste screen (October 2018 Update).
  • Announcing notifications from various apps.

 

In fact, NVDA 2018.3.x includes important parts of Windows 10 App Essentials, namely working with modern Windows 10 input features and dialog detection.

Cheers,

Joseph

Removing the win 10 essentials addon fixed the problem.
