Re: How can I use NVDA delete a page in word?

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Logo,

I was about to say that CONTROL+PAGE UP and CONTROL+PAGE DOWN move to the start of the previous or next page in Word, therefore to select a whole page, move to the top of a page and press CONTROL+SHIFT+PAGE DOWN.  Then I tried it and realised that (on Office 365 at least) moving between pages works, but not selecting them.

So, I have a quick way for you which does use NVDA commands:

1) Move to the start of the page to be deleted.
2) Press NVDA+F9.  This is the review cursor command to "start marking" text.
3) Press CONTROL+PAGE DOWN to move to the start of the next page.
4) Press the LEFT ARROW to go back one character.
5) Press NVDA+F10 once.  This selects the whole page.
6) Press DELETE.

The reason you have to use the left arrow to go back one character is that the review cursor copy function takes the character to the right of the cursor as well, so without that step you would delete the whole page and the first character from the next page.

Meanwhile, I'm going to go see why CONTROL+SHIFT+PAGE DOWN doesn't work.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Are There Now or Has There Recently Been a Problem with Donating . . .

Quentin Christensen
 

Thanks Brian, it was likely a change PayPal made - they keep changing things and invariably it usually seems to make it less friendly to use.  If it does get too hard for users, we can look at another provider.  I must admit, PayPal is the main one I am familiar with, I'm not sure what the best other options out there are...  We have trialed adding "Stripe" to the shop for purchases like the training materials.  I haven't had any feedback either way from people on that option yet.

Quentin,

           All I can tell you at this juncture is that the issue was almost certain to be the donate option that comes up when you are installing a new version of NVDA.  I had asked my friend if she had updated to NVDA 2018.3, to which she responded in the affirmative, but then the conversation turned to her having been unable to donate as she typically does when she updates.

           This is someone who has been a screen reader user for decades, and an NVDA user for a long chunk of that (it's her screen reader of choice).  That's the reason I brought it up because if she was having difficulties I suspected it might not be a case of user error.  Perhaps it was a fluke, but I thought it should be mentioned.

Hey Buddy,


I heard of the infinite boot up loops, and the blue screen of death issues in 1803 as well.  Fortunately That didn't happen to me; however, it's rather disturbing that they just want to keep on throwing these problematic updates out unto the unsuspecting public time, after time, after time.

Re: Windows 10 version 1809 being shelved do to major issues

 

Monte,

           Indeed.  Though I will say that Windows 10 Feature Updates, until this one, have been pretty consistently having fewer and fewer issues.  Given the number of different hardware configurations on which Windows 10 is being run, including many never intended to run it, it's a miracle how well it does work.  (And that comment/observation does not absolve Microsoft in any way for the debacle the initial rollout of Version 1809 has been.)

            There are other choices and, contrary to a great many popular urban legends, they have issues, too.  And the more that people who are not very well versed in the system internals of a given OS insist on playing around with same the more issues they tend to have.

Re: Windows 10 version 1809 being shelved do to major issues

But in the old days, Windows didn't get a full upgrade every six months.  Service packs were infrequent--perhaps two or three or four years apart.  Windows 7 only had one.  Perhaps Microsoft should look through its records of who had problems with Windows 10 upgrades through Windows 10's history.  Perhaps they can identify certain combinations of hardware and software that are prone to problems.  They then can actively attempt to recruit members of the Insider program who run such combinations.  It appears the Insider program is not working as expected.

Re: NVDA and the audible app

David Mehler
 

Hello,

Just went through this found it yesterday fought with my computer, it
is not your machine, and got ahold of audible about half an hour ago.
This fixed it for me and site downloads are once again working.

First of all log in to your audible account, then hit enter on your
name, if your using jfw it will say hi whatever your name is
collapsed, arrowing around will now show Under that arrowing you'll
see your account status, for example mine said Gold Monthly.
Continuing to arrow down you'll get to account details, enter on that.
I should note that during this process you might have to log in again
depending on your browser settings. Arrow to update settings, and
scroll down or use heading navigation of NVDA to get to something that
says software verification. Under that there's a checkbox that for you
will be unchecked it says something like check for audible download
manager, check that, and then your good to go.

Hth
Dave.

I am afraid it is already here and not 3 years away at least here in the
UK

I found last night when I went to my audible Library the download
facility
now takes you to a so called “help” page which only gives the option of
using Audible iOS, Android, Echo etc and Windows 10.

There is an apparent option to use iTunes but if you follow the help on
that it states you need the Audible app installed.

As it is now imposible to download directly from the website this is
very
bad news indeed.

I tried to open a “chat”with Audible support but after stating the
problem
they did not respond at all- I waited for 30 minutes for any
acknowledgement.

So for me as of last night Audible appears inaccessible for blind
users
of Windows and also for devices like the victor Reader Stream/Trek and
Pocket Plextalk which could until last week support the playing of
Audible
books.

As I am now blocked from accessing something like 60 books that I have
paid for over the years I am not a happy customer.

This is mainlya request for the developers, but I'm posting it here
hoping

I use the Aubible website for Audio book purchases and downloads. I
conteacted Audible with a request of helping me fix an issue with the
Audible download manager.
WHile they helped me fix the issue, the woman warned me that they
would
eventually phase out the Audible download manager because of the
Audible
app for Windows 10.
As of right now, unless I am very much mistaken, NVDA nor JAWS will
work
with the Audible app for Windows 10.
I would ask that someone look into this as it may become necessary for
those of us that use the website to use the app to download books in
the
future.
The lady I talked to said she could not give me a time frame on when
they
would do away with the Audible download manager, but that they had
already
stopped updating it.

Re: Windows 10 version 1809 being shelved do to major issues

Actually, I had seen some stuff come over the wire for about a week
now that if Windows didn't feel it had enough space during this past
update, the potential to delete files existed. But yeah--it does make
1 wonder. I suppose it's always best practice to make a backup, but,
sometimes, Windows doesn't give a warning prior to updating--it just
does it. I think these "Creator" updates do let you decide, though. I
know the last fall creators update gave me a lot of problems accessing
my ISP's website after it was completed, & I had to roll it back for a
long while until the issues got resolved.

Subject: [nvda] Windows 10 version 1809 being shelved do to major issues


Howdy,


From our win10 sister list and other reputable sources in the wires and
colleagues from my personal network there have been loads of reports
about people losing their data when they upgrade from windows 10 version
1803 to version 1809. Microsoft has put the version 1809 update back on
the shelf until they figure out what is happening. This seems to be
happening to folks who are signed into one drive while they run the
upgrade. Systems that are not signed into one drive appear not to have
the issue. You can read more of this here.

This could also be an issue of wrong OCR language. What is the language of the document? If it's Bangla or Urdu, you would need to set the OCR language to either of these. English is the default language of Abby fine reader.

What is wrong with the insider program that this problem wasn't known before the rollout?  Are there too few people in the program?  Should there be more attention to trying to get more users who use Windows in different ways and on more varied equipment?  Microsoft is developing a reputation for bad rollouts, hardly helpful for the company achieving its goals of having people accept "Windows as a service." 
 
In an article I read yesterday from a reliable source, it was stated that both this major upgrade and the one before it had serious problems.  I don't recall the details now, but I recall reading about how the previous upgrade put some users machines into infinite bootup loops.  I don't recall what other problems may have been in that upgrade.  Again, what is wrong with the insider program that this wasn't caught?

Yes Jonathan Mosen was mentioning about it this very morning. Though he says
none of his machines have had the issue. There was also so question marks
about third party anti virusses maybe blocking the back up of files when
Windows tries to move them as well.

So who is going to sue for lost data?
 The more I hear the more I'm glad I'm on windows 7, even if it won't read
dropbox dialogue boxes any more.

No.
Android is not Windows.

Subject: [nvda] Sort of NVDA Question


Hi All,

I have a sort of NVDA related question.

I have an Android TV box and have it connected through Team Viewer with
my laptop, but I do not hear any speech back through my laptop. Is it
possible to install NVDA on the Android box?

Even with Talkback enabled on the Android box I hear nothing back
through the laptop.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Regards, Stephen

So glad I'm not using any of those antivirus programs.

Though windows 7 is on its last bit of life I think? Hmm.
