a freezing issue

 

Hi.

This happened today after fiddling with a load of 50gb folders which I had to delete and copy back to my drives, and so it was a lot of heavy processing on my new amd laptop.

I was listening to a winamp stream to.

nvda froze up after I had gone away for a while, explorer crashed then I had to reboot.

Its probable that I may never have the same issue, I usually don't handle 2 drives and a lot of data at once like this usually and play audio but anyway here is the log.

Hi Vlad

Thanks for the advice it is appreciated.

I did not ask which voice he is using but do recall hearing it in the background during the phone call and I don’t think it was a vocalizer voice, I think it was espeak NG synthesizer but will confirm when I am able to next contact him.

 

Kind regards

Hello Eric,

 

If  your client is using the Vocalize voices add-on sold by Code Factory, please let them know that the problem comes from that add-on. It might be a good idea if he/she could write them and ask them to solve this problem. It’s been around for the last two months or so.

 

Hope this helped a bit. Most sincerely,

 

Vlad.

Re: Win10 system restore

 

Windows has never kept "an infinite list" of restore points, but tends to keep them for the last 4 or 5 major actions.

When you get to the Restore your computer to the state it was in before the selected event dialog, do you have the checkbox for Show more restore points checked?  If not, you'll see only one, the most recent one.

Re: Need help scanning books

Hi.

I used to use something called kurzweil 1000. I scanned documents and then the computer would read them to me. I had a giant scanner. I guess it was the kurzweil 1000.

There are flatbed scanners designed specifically for scanning books, called book scanners.  I'm not sure how much they cost but they won't damage the spine of the book.  You can use a flatbed scanner to scan books, whidch isn't a book scanner and it will work well if it’s a reasonable quality one and those are much cheaper.  But you will damage the spines of books, they will become slanted and you may get less money when reselling books.  I haven't looked at scanner brands and models for a long time so I won't say much about that.  Epson was and I think still is, a popular scanner among blind people.  The models blind people bought were in the Perfection series, thus Epson Perfection and then whatever specific scanner you want in that line.

Hello guys!
I had a Lex scanner, which broke recently. It is a specialized scanner for scanning books and documents for blind people. It's basically a camera on a inverted 'L' shaped stand, looks like a table lamp.

Now, since I scan books and documents often for my school work, I need something else. Can't afford the same scanner, it's reasonably costly. Can you guys suggest something? some affordable scanner? Or alternate ways of scanning books?

Would a flat bed scanner work? Has anybody used those? --

Anyone knows why restore points disappear?  Each time I setup one, it is gone after few weeks.  I even increased the allocated memory amount and my terabyte drive is 85% empty.  I would appreciate any feedback/suggestion.

Hi All

I have a client who is using the latest version of NVDA on a Windows 10 Laptop with Office 2016.

The client is reasonably proficient with using NVDA and reports that when attempting to use the “SAY ALL” ( INSERT+DOWN ARROW ) in word, Outlook, notepad various other programs, that the command fails to read to the end of the Page or Document from the currently focused point. The client states it will usually read to the end of the line, sentence, or paragraph and that repeating the command will prompt NVDA to continue reading but again not to the end as expected.

 

This issue is reported to me as having been occurring for approximately 4 to 6 weeks, So has survived several system reboots. I have ensured via phone that the client is using the latest version and currently there are no updates available for the client.

 

I have been unable to reproduce this issue on a test system or my work system with the latest version or the previous versions of NVDA. Reset to factory defaults would be the next obvious step but I would like to know if this is a known issue or if there is some way of resolving this without a reset to defaults.

 

Any advice or assistance is greatly appreciated.

Re: NVDA say all command not working.

 

Hi Eric,

Is your client using any NVDA add-ons at the moment? If yes, it might be possible that a recent add-on update may have contributed to this problem. If it turns out add-ons might be to blame, have your client follow Gene’s advice of restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled and see if that makes a difference.

Cheers,

Joseph

Thank you so much the warm welcome and for taking the time to assist with this issue.

  • I have confirmed with the client that they were using the “Down arrow key” as opposed to the NUMPAD “down arrow”. Unfortunately I neglected to state this in my original message, please accept my apologies for that oversight.

I confirmed they are using a desktop keyboard and believe that their NVDA config is set to desktop keyboard but I will contact and confirm this and relay your message.

Hello Eric,

First, welcome to NVDA users list.

If you don’t mind, can you pass on the following message to your client please:

 

Hi,

This is Joseph Lee, one of the developers of NVDA screen reader.

I heard from a person you work with that say all command (NVDA+down arrow) isn’t working for you all the way. This might be caused by one or more of the following:

  • Which key you are pressing: many desktop keyboards (and some laptops) come with two arrow keys: the regular arrow keys, and the set as part of the Numpad. I’m thinking that you might be pressing the Numpad down arrow key with NVDA key, which performs a completely different action. Unless otherwise stated, when NvDA people talk about arrow keys, we usually refer to regular arrow keys.
  • Keyboard layout: NVDA comes with two keyboard layouts to suit the needs of desktop and laptop keyboard users. I’m thinking that somehow you may have switched to laptop keyboard layout. To confirm this, press Control+NVDA+K, then see what the keyboard layout is (the first combo box from keyboard settings).

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

When I bought mine there were 2 types, a stand-alone version called the Solo and another type consisting of the camera and separate software to be installed onto a PC. I have the second type. I know the software was updated at least to support Windows 7 and that the camera could also be upgraded. I would be willing to give you the hardware (camera, supporting arm, USB cables etc.) as well as any documentation I have. You would have to contact their support department to update the software and info on modernizing the camera.

Re: FireFox Update Download Problems Cont

Gene
 

The choice isn't to use the old version or a new version exclusively.  You can use the version you are using now for e-mail and you can use the current version, run as a portable version for general browsing.  I haven't had problems with the current version of Firefox as far as accessibility is concerned.  I assume you know that older versions of browsers are more vulnerable to security exploits that allow malicious sites to download malware and do other things to compromise your machine and steal personal information. 
 
That's why I am advising that you use a portable current version for general browsing and the 52.x version for e-mail. 
 
You don't need to join another group to do this.  Many people on the list use portable Firefox and can give you information. 
 
I'm not saying you shouldn't join the group you are discussing, there's nothing wrong with having more resources if you want them, I'm saying for what I am discussing, you can get all the information you need here.

Subject: [nvda] FireFox Update Download Problems Cont

Hi All,

I did a system restore and am back on FF52. Emails could not be read
that I compose, and my signature line could not be read either. I had
to forward tab once to read email in the inbox. So, whatever advances
have been made, benefit me little. I don't know a lot about
configuring computers to work in the manner to which I am accustom.

I understand there is a support group from Texas that deals with
accessibility issues on a more personal level. Does anyone have
contact info for them or such a group or service?

I cannot afford to update if it limits my known capabilities. Thanks!

Re: speaking passwords instead of star

Brian K. Lingard
 

I am a bad typist; habitually press unwanted keys plus the ones I want.

 

For this reason, I keep many passwords in a file and copy them into secure fields.

Hi, is there a way to set nvda to say a password when I type it instead of star and read the field I am writing in without it saying star?

Hi eye pal is a type of scanner. You can install scanning softwhere on
it! I have a flat bed eye pal scanner. Yes, the flat bed scanner can
be used to scan books. You can fold it up and put it away or leave it
on the desk near your computer. If you need it you can pull it out of
a drawer and use it as needed!

Hello guys!
I had a Lex scanner, which broke recently. It is a specialized
scanner for scanning books and documents for blind people. It's
basically a camera on a inverted 'L' shaped stand, looks like a
table lamp.

Now, since I scan books and documents often for my school work, I
need something else. Can't afford the same scanner, it's
reasonably costly. Can you guys suggest something? some affordable
scanner? Or alternate ways of scanning books?

Would a flat bed scanner work? Has anybody used those? --

Sociohack
