Re: A query I meant to post earlier about windows messages

 

Well you may need to put it in, and see what it does.

Though its done that to my icloud account even though it looked like it took.

hitting enter on that can help to open it however I don't always trust
windowsaction/ notiffication centre.

For example, during a clock sync the power dropped off and the router died.

I got it back every thing was out of sync, windows was alegal, everything
wouldn't open and everything was screaming at me.

It was waterfox that alerted me to the fact everything was backwards and
pointed me at my clock, which I changed.

Then everything worked.

But the messages stayed, and I had to tell action centre to ignore them till
they died.

On a similar note, notifications can report a problem, but in a criptic way
and after I have found and solved it.

I was upgrading one of my security/ backup programs.

And immediately I got a notification that I was unsafe, recomending a full
reset and reformat.

I was aware the thing was broken, and continued updating.

After this, I had to clear things.

I have had it say for example that I am using pirated windows, and my
accounts are not signing in and that a whole host of things are screwed and
that I should reset or something.

Yet when I have logged into where I need to go to check, not only are they
not showing no problems but checking on the server side shows that they
never existed.

Or existed for such a little time it didn't matter.

The only time that its ever really worked was when I was updating a business
server for my uncle and the system kept crashing, at that time, windows put
up the usual video card issue with the drivers crashing out.

A small note put that it was a bug with the driver, and to open a website
for instructions, where I found the manufacturer had added to the action
note that I needed a new driver and got a direct link to it.

But that was before things got weird.

Now, I do glance at notifications centre just like I would glance at the
paper, but 99.9% of the time I just clear them, in most cases its fixed, not
a problem or if it is, I can handle it without any issue.

So if there is a quick way to just get to that message wherever it is

Re: ccleaner servey

 

Who knows they had issues before that, for me they were fine till about 3.2.

I really used to like ccleaner for what it is.

The only reason I don't replace it is that the feature set is good and the interface mostly works.

In fact for those that don't mind a bit of extra work even with the portable I would still recomend it as a good contender.

Sadly, without my ini file or a bit of sighted help to set the interface its pritty much useless.

Even if you take the interface out, I can't trust the installer, access wize, interface excluded if they can get some settings screens working, heck excluding things if I make changes to the ini file I expect something I make to stay and thats it really.

For my users though I don't want them to run my stuff I have had people get into all sort of reformatting trouble after doodling round with my stuff, my tools I trust them but I can use them.

CCleaner was good once it still is if you know what you are doing, but if you don't then it may or may not have the clout in my view it once did.

Strange proglem when exiting NVDA Portable Version.

prem.translator@...
 

Dear All,
I have two NVDAs in my laptop, one is the installed version, and the other is portable. The following is my situation.

When I run the installed version, there is no problem when pressed NVDA+q to exit. However, when I run the portable one, I cannot exit using the same command, NVDA will always restart itself. The only way to exit the portable version is to press CTRL+ALT+n to run the installed one. Below is the log containing the error.

Please help me,
Thank you.

Wouldn’t you know it, it brought me to the pin edit box. After typing in my pin, NVDA immediately turned on… I guess I should have tried this last week. Jeez. I feel so dumb.

Here's a quick question. Which logging level should I normally be using? I'm trying to make sure I'm using settings that do not slow down the program or computer.

Warmly,
Ralph

Is there not some kind of config like there is in other browsers, ie what should I do with this file or file type, download it open it with zip or whatever?

Its no good if the thing is set to open it as a page. You should be able to tell it to do what you want on that extension name.

Hi,

Is there a problem with chrome and NVDA addons I tried to download the irish tts nvda addon from www.abair.ie English website… and chrome tried opening the nvda addon file as if it were a website and displayed jibberish characters. The only way for me to download the addon was to use Microsoft edge. How do I get google chrome to download this addon?

Switch out of focus to browse mode first and then fiddle around with them. NVDA is notorious at not updating the states of radio buttons in a table on a web page. I['m pretty sure there was a debate if this was poor page authoring or not about 2 years ago?
I encountered this recently on a health log in account creation site as well. I could not se my gender. It looked like I was both male and female. A medical miracle but on refreshing the page they seemed to  be changed but nvda did not say they had or got them both as  on.

Hello


Just wondering if anyone has run into this problem with NVDA. I am trying to select radio buttons that are within a table (basically ranking students on a scale from 1-5 on several criteria, with each criterion being one row of radio buttons.)


It doesn't matter whether I use firefox or chrome, the radio buttons don't seem to change state whether I hit spacebar or return, or whether I am in edit mode or not.


Anyone got any ideas?

Re: Logging Level

 

Hi,
Ideally info level should be used unless told by a developer or two to use debug level temporarily. Also, logging levels does not make a difference in responsiveness of a system - other variables such as what programs you're running (both foreground and background), system drivers, visuals and others contribute to performance somewhat.
Cheers,
Joseph
