Anyone of you guys have the latest Clock AddOn_ because f12 doesn’t say either the time or date, but it does report upon the 3rd press, the number of the day in the year, and how many days are left to the end of the year.

Also when setting up the AddON from within NVDA menú/Preferences/Options/clock settings, when it comes time to sabe the settings, they don’t appear to sabe< when I want to reopen again NVDA menú to check the settings, I get an error that tnere’s already a Settings dialogue open< to close it first before attemtping to go back into the NVDA settings área. Any ideas what might be going on?

Re: Browse mode and focus

 

Hello,
You can configure it through the Settings, which can be found at the NVDA Menu (NVDA+N).
Search for browse mode, then uncheck the boxes on automatic change or something like that. I don't know how it should appear because I'm not using NVDA in English, but I hope it can help you somehow.

The sighted world analogy of moving the browse mode cursor is simply
reading, which should not be associated with so many events in the

Re: Is their another way to disable all add-ons that I don't know about?

why not open your word processor of choice, copy and paste joseph's instructions in there, and save the document, giving it a title you'll recognize later as being what you're looking for? that way, you won't have to remember the instructions in full. I never remember command lines, but if someone gives me instructions using them, I write them down for when I might need them later on. I'm not techy by nature, but I've found a lot of information just by reading the messages on this list and taking note of those messages with information I might find useful someday, even if it's not something I need right now. Needless to say, I'm very thankful and grateful for Notepad! :)

Hi Molly and others,

Okay, let’s go over one thing at a time:

Add-on Updater problem: another way to find out if the add-on is working
is:

1. Go to NvDA menu/Preferences/Settings.
2. See if Add-on Updater is one of the categories.

If Add-on Updater is one of the categories, then I’d like to know what’s
up. If not, I also would like to know what’s going on.

NVDA log: typically, when people talk about NVDA log, it refers to a text
file where NVDA records information as it runs. The fastest way to open
this “file” is pressing NVDA+F1.

Add-on issues and logs: whenever an issue with an add-on shows up, unless
if it’s an issue I know exactly what’s going on, I always ask people to
restart with add-ons disabled. Then once the problem is confirmed, I
sometimes ask people to restart with add-ons enabled and ask folks to send
the log to developers (me included). Typically, if an add-on that provides
visible user interface services (adding items to NVDA menu and its
submenus) is installed but that interface doesn’t show up (such as Add-on
Updater in your case), I always ask people to send the log to developers
for analysis. As Add-on Updater is my add-on, I’d like to request just that
– please send the entire log to me in private (press NVDA+F1, copy
everything, and paste it as an email to me privately).

About Windows Insider Program: testing new features is not really the top
reason for existence of Windows Insider Program; rather, the program is
meant to gather feedback from testers before features ship to the rest of
the world. This is the reason why Microsoft reminds people every week (or
almost every week) that Insider Preview builds are not stable, and features
can come and go without notice.

Molly, you’re not alone in stating that you became a Windows Insider
because you’re excited about trying out new goodies here and there; you’re
not the first, nor will be the last person to go through this phase (trust
me, I heard similar stories in the last four years – I became a Windows
Insider shortly after it was first announced in September 2014). But as
beta software (or rather, an operating system going through constant flux),
trying out new things has its drawbacks too, namely unstable releases from
time to time. Specifically, if you have signed up to receive at least one
build a week (fast and skip ahead rings, which I think is what you’ve
done), you’re bound to encounter issues frequently, hence you’re encouraged
to submit feedback as early as possible. If you want stability but still
want to remain a Windows Insider, I recommend either going with slow ring,
or opt into release preview ring (the former will give you builds known to
be more stable than fast ring; the latter will not upgrade you to the next
big update until it is nearly ready for the public). If you want strict
stability and can’t afford to lose productivity (in other words, feel
uncomfortable with living on the edge now), then perhaps Windows Insider
Program might not be right for you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Why did you decide to be in the insider program? That is asking for bugs

sure if the code you are testing is even considered beta yet.

Re: I can't find where in nvda I can check for add on updates

 

Well you could always drop to release preview or slow ring if you want to stay active.

I have signed to the insider program on my ms account to read all the feeds etc but not on any system.

So you could opt out but still sign up on ms website to stay in the loop if you want.

Or subscribe to the win10 insiders group and still stay in the loop with the news dumps which is what I have done.

You only do that if you have a system to test it with.

I don't do betas at least not that level as I only have one production system.

Technically I will have another later on next year but its going to be a toss up between linux either ubuntu mate or jenux and or being an insider on this slower box.

I can't do both.

And I really want a linux machine.

Re: I can't find where in nvda I can check for add on updates

 

Well you could always try to delete your nvda.ini and redo all the settings and addons clear your userconfig folder to see if it works or not.

Saying that, you are an insider, being one does mean you may have to get in situations like this.

I assume that being an insider you do have backups.

My advice would for you to reformat and reinstall a stable windows version, get the latest drivers, etc, and restore one of those backups.

If you don't have a current image, then reformat, put all your stuff back, put the latest drivers etc on there, make a backup image with something like drive xml, and go insider again.

It may not be enough work to worry about to add this option, but why should a screen-reader accommodate a user in such trifles.  It really isn't unreasonable to change the setting when you want to be able to do this.

Hi Molly and others,

Okay, let’s go over one thing at a time:

Add-on Updater problem: another way to find out if the add-on is working is:

  1. Go to NvDA menu/Preferences/Settings.
  2. See if Add-on Updater is one of the categories.

If Add-on Updater is one of the categories, then I’d like to know what’s up. If not, I also would like to know what’s going on.

NVDA log: typically, when people talk about NVDA log, it refers to a text file where NVDA records information as it runs. The fastest way to open this “file” is pressing NVDA+F1.

Add-on issues and logs: whenever an issue with an add-on shows up, unless if it’s an issue I know exactly what’s going on, I always ask people to restart with add-ons disabled. Then once the problem is confirmed, I sometimes ask people to restart with add-ons enabled and ask folks to send the log to developers (me included). Typically, if an add-on that provides visible user interface services (adding items to NVDA menu and its submenus) is installed but that interface doesn’t show up (such as Add-on Updater in your case), I always ask people to send the log to developers for analysis. As Add-on Updater is my add-on, I’d like to request just that – please send the entire log to me in private (press NVDA+F1, copy everything, and paste it as an email to me privately).

About Windows Insider Program: testing new features is not really the top reason for existence of Windows Insider Program; rather, the program is meant to gather feedback from testers before features ship to the rest of the world. This is the reason why Microsoft reminds people every week (or almost every week) that Insider Preview builds are not stable, and features can come and go without notice.

Molly, you’re not alone in stating that you became a Windows Insider because you’re excited about trying out new goodies here and there; you’re not the first, nor will be the last person to go through this phase (trust me, I heard similar stories in the last four years – I became a Windows Insider shortly after it was first announced in September 2014). But as beta software (or rather, an operating system going through constant flux), trying out new things has its drawbacks too, namely unstable releases from time to time. Specifically, if you have signed up to receive at least one build a week (fast and skip ahead rings, which I think is what you’ve done), you’re bound to encounter issues frequently, hence you’re encouraged to submit feedback as early as possible. If you want stability but still want to remain a Windows Insider, I recommend either going with slow ring, or opt into release preview ring (the former will give you builds known to be more stable than fast ring; the latter will not upgrade you to the next big update until it is nearly ready for the public). If you want strict stability and can’t afford to lose productivity (in other words, feel uncomfortable with living on the edge now), then perhaps Windows Insider Program might not be right for you.

Joseph

Why did you decide to be in the insider program?  That is asking for bugs and problems and is intended for those who want to test unreleased versions of Windows for problems.  It is something like beta testing but I'm not sure if the code you are testing is even considered beta yet.

If what you're asking for is a way to have NVDA restarted without add-ons enabled, then try this:
  1. Windows+R
  2. Type "nvda --disable-addons" (without the quotes)
  3. Spell the command above character by character so you won't miss any part of it.

Cheers,

Joseph

Well I joined the insider program because I wanted to check out new windows features before they are released. It was great at first. But then I received one unstable build after another. I even had to do  a system restore because windows failed to load properly. I’m going to opt out of the insider program right now. I can’t deal with all these problems and honestly, I don’t have time to test beta software. What was I thinking?

Why did you decide to be in the insider program?  That is asking for bugs and problems and is intended for those who want to test unreleased versions of Windows for problems.  It is something like beta testing but I'm not sure if the code you are testing is even considered beta yet.

Well I’m starting to really dislike this laptop lately. Life was a lot less complicated when it worked properly.

NVDA key+n, t for tools, then press a twice. You then press enter. That will definitely do the trick.

Hey guys, Molly here again.

So I have the add on updater installed on my pc. Where do I go to check for add on updates? Thanks.


Re: Is their another way to disable all add-ons that I don't know about?

 

Hi,
Yes via the following command-line text as exactly as shown (from Run dialog):

nvda -r --disable-addons

Cheers,

Hi is their another way? I don’t have NVDA set to give me the options to disable all add-ons when I close NVDA cause I just want to hear the sound and bam its closed. Thanks.
