Re: VIDEO GAMING

goshawk on horseback
 

I don't know about mainstream games, but there are quite a number of games designed for us, which are either self voicing, or that should work with NVDA.
there is a site that lists most if not all of them, but I can't remember what it is.
there is also the blind gamers e-mail list at:
where you should be able to get info on just about any accessible game out there.
have you given any thought to what types of games you would be interested in?

Hi,

 

Earlier today, I saw a message from someone saying they were a video gamer and am interested to know what video games are accessible via NVDA to a totally blind user, please, as this may be an avenue I’d like to explore.

 

Thanks for any info.

Re: Weird audio stuttering with latestNVDA Update

Annette Moore
 

No stuttering of any kind here, but I did have to try installing the update toNVDA twice because something must've gone wrong the first time. There was no error that I could find; it just didn't install, so I restarted NVDA and went through the downloading and installation again, and it worked that time. All seems to be in fine working order now from this end.

Well, believe it or not, I just shut down both Outlook and NVDA and then restarted both, and the problem has resolved itself. I know I had tried that before and it had not worked, so maybe this new version of NVDA has fixed a problem somewhere. Hopefully it won’t reappear. As for trying an older version, I honestly can’t remember when the problem first appeared.

Have you gone back to a version where this didn't happen to see if it still doesn't?  At this point, we can't tell if this is an NVDA issue or something else.  You can use an older version as a portable program and keep your current installation for the test. 

When the problem occurs, what happens if you unload and then run NVDA again?  Did you try that before rebooting? 

 

Also, when this happens, before trying to correct the situation, see if you can go in and out of browse mode in the message.  There may be some problem with the way browse mode works when this happens.

I understand and really appreciate your concern.  I also installed an earlier version of NVDA with no success.  The stuttering is happening with all included synthesizers and with Eloquent.  I am suspecting it is my Acer laptop as I had to resort to this drastic measure before.

I used the recovery USB and it did take much time.  The laptop is singing again nicely.  I don’t dare to update NVDA to the latest version.  I am using 2017.3. I’ll wait for a while before I update.  Before I go, I have one question, is there an image program you would recommend?  I ask as the “system restore” is not trustworthy.

Many thanks

That sounds like a lot of work.   Is there anything important you want to do with the newest NVDA version or anything important you believe will be possible you will want to do in versions that will be upcoming in the next year or two? 

 

In addition, what if you try a different synthesizer.  Which one are you using now? It might make more sense to go back to the version of NVDA you were using until there is a reason or reasons to go through all that work in terms of a meaningful benefit or benefits. 

 

And, in the short term, if enough people report this problem, it will be addressed by the developers.  it may be that there is something about your laptop and some others that will never be known, that causes you to have this problem and it may be corrected by the developers.  So even if you have reasons to want to use the latest update now, it might be better to wait and see how things develop.

Re: Weird audio stuttering with latestNVDA Update

 

I don't get that myself, I do have the issue that after or during doing multiple copy or delete or other actions with file explorer in 10 nvda tends to freez a lot.

As I said I don't generally have to handle a load of huge datasets on a day to day basis but its still slightly vexing with 1809 I know its not the cpu, this r5 can take a lot of stress, I know its not the hardware but still.

One thing I can't stand is the property loss when transfering or deleting things with win aero tweaker I have managed to get rid of the automated admin account which means if I need to get into, replace files and or delete files or modify them in program files like winamp plugins I can but if I could get rid of the property loss or even put some classic dialogs on the box that would help.

Bar that I am happy with my new box.

When I go to the NVDA addons web site I find no reference to the screen curtain addon. I get to the web page by through the NVDA UI under tools, manage addons then get addons.

Well do not have office 2010, but I'd have expected this to affect other software in 7, but thus far no sign of a problem.

Maybe you could check if alt tabbing away and back restores it or not?

I am finding that, every so often, and too often, I am suddenly unable to
move line by line in an HTML message in Outlook. The only solution I have
found is to reboot, but this only solves the issue for a while and then it
happens again. I am noticing many more issues like this recently--it would
seem NVDA is becoming less stable under Windows 7. Any ideas would be
welcome.

Yes well the thing is you see, the guide dog has no manners and does not need chopsticks.
OK I know what you mean. its all very fine saying there are funny stuff happening but until we see some kind of log or description of what was actually tried then the crystal ball is not of much use, we do not know which direction to point it.

Well I was on the RC so I'd expect to get the update, maybe its not being given to others for some reason. Try a manual check and see.

I would say it's not a good reason why I wouldn't update it.
Actually if I'm not going wrong we saw only about 2 cases reporting this
NVDA strange behavior and none of these gave more details but the report
of the so called bug, which isn't a nice point to start thinking it's
really a bug in the update itself, rather with the computers on this matter.
Anyway, let's see how things are going to go. I still didn't receive any
update for now, so if I receive it I'll consider looking for more cases
like this before updating or not.

Cheers,
Marcio

Hello,

just updated to the latest NVDA update and whenever i'm browsing my
computer, working online and such, I occasionally get this weird
audio stuttering. All realtek drivers are up to date. Prior to
updating I did not experience any issues. Has anyone else
experienced? Thanks.

I also think it is Windows. My HP laptop with Winver 1803 is working fine.
It is my Acer that was affected when I updated Windows to winver 1809.

Actually I think its not the update, Its more likely to be windows, however
I seem to recall people complaining of this on the last update of nvda a few
weeks ago as well.
Nothing seemed to happen here.

I have tried your kind suggestions but with no success. I am resorting to
the hammer solution wiping my Acer laptop clean and rebuilding it from
scratch. My other HP laptop is working fine with NVDA 2017.3 and Win10 1803
version. I honestly do not dare updating NVDA and Win10 at this time.

Many thanks.

I have updated but I didn't notice any audio problem.



After restarting your PC, try to restart NVDA with allo add-ons disabled.
Does the issue still occur?

Hi,

I'd like to find out if others who have updated to 2018.4.1 are also
experiencing audio issues after doing so (I'm running an equivalent alpha
build and not experiencing it, but I'll leave open all sorts of
possibilities).
