Re: Arabic and Turkish voices now available via Acapela TTS for NVDA v1.3

Hello Hrvoje, as far as we know the license should be able to survive a Windows upgrade, we have no report whatsoever of problems during upgrades. We have not tested update to an insider version of Windows, but I would expect the license would make it.

If you get problems you can always contact us at contact@... and we will help you out.

Re: NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox

Mário Navarro
 

NVDA is not just slow in browsers, but also in the system.
after browsing for a while, it starts to get slow and I have to turn off and on to get normal again.
and my pc is a good machine with I5 processor, 4 RAM ..
with jaws these occurrences do not happen.
I now use the jaws 17 full-time for these reasons.
jaws is not slow in any situation like this occurred with NVDA.

I only use 3 extras.
I do not need anything else.

NVDA is getting slower and every a new version.
this makes me worry.

I think the team of NVDA has to think about this with more seriously.

cheers.

System: Windows 7, NVDA 2016.2, Firefox, any version.
This has always been an ongoing problem, but it seems to be more prevalent
now.
If you have a number of tabs open in Firefox, NVDA will begin to slow down
appreciably in the program. Responses to key presses are delayed and using
the browser becomes problematic and inefficient. The only solution is to
restart firefox.
In previous versions of NVDA, this decrease in responsivness took a while to
manifest--sometimes I could work for a whole day and NVDA would not slow
down until the next.
However, now it barely takes six to ten hours for this slowness to occur.
The only way to reproduce this step is to to work in Firefox for a while,
with a number of tabs open.
I do not know if this same slowness occurs in Internet Explorer, Chrome or
Edge.
I would like to know if others have experienced this decrease in
performance, and what--if any--solutions are available to counteract this

checking all gmail messages using nvda

Marisane Moruthanyana
 

Morning guys

 

I am using nvda as one of my screen readers to read and write my gmail messages.

 

I set gmail to html basic.

 

I cannot delete all messages after reading them as nvda does not show me the ‘check all messages’ check box.

 

To delete all messages, I have to delete each individual message.

 

Do you know how I can check all messages to save myself from deleting individual messages?

 

Let me apologise in advance if this is the wrong list to post the message of this nature.

 

I’ll be glad to be directed to the right list if this doesn’t seem to be the right one.

 

With respect

Marisane

The only time I do this is when I for example need to get files but I rarely use more than 1 at a time maybe thats showing my old dos days.
While I could do it now, I don't see any reason to do it or at least as a perminant fixture.

Re: question regarding windows defender

Heaven Botma <ehlbotma@...>
 

Hi

Windows Defender is the replacement for Microsoft Security Essentials
in Windows 10. It works better than MSE and takes off most viruses.
There was only one time that I had to use additional security to
remove a virus. In addition, it is very accessible with NVDA.

You will need to set up BRLTTY to use that display. NVDA does not support this unit natively, it seems.

Re: NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox

Kwork
 

I find that things for me move better by using separate windows rather than
tabs. Maybe try that as an option.
Options, general
Open new windows in a new tab instead
Make sure it's unchecked.
It may not fix things for you, but something to try. You can always go back
in and recheck it if you do prefer tab browsing.

I don't think NVDA is slowing down, rather, Firefox, through its
latest updates, have begun to become less and less accessible. I am
not speaking from experience, however, because I do not face this
issue. Opening many tabs is not recommended in the first place.
