Re: Windows Defender Adequate?

 

Ralph,

              The improvements to Windows Defender, now Windows Security as of Version 1809, have been huge over the last several years, and the results of third-party lab tests indicate this.

               Although I have Malwarebytes on my system (free version, manual scans) too, I cannot even recall the last time I used it.  It was always a backup tool for the "in case I somehow become infected" circumstance, and I have not had an infection on any of my systems in probably 20 years or longer now.

See the most recent plus the last several years of historical test results from:

AV Test

AV Comparatives

SE Labs  (Reports Page)

Re: Windows Defender Adequate?

Windows Live Mail has pretty good ratings.  It isn’t the best program but I don’t know how many acdcessible antivirus programs there are now.  I’m not anywhere near an authority enough to say if it is adequate but my impression is that it is unless someone takes wrecklessly dangerous risks. 
   
Regarding Malware Bytes, Are you using the version with realtime protection or are you just scanning your computer with it on a schedule?  I’m not recommending that you buy the program and thus get realtime protection or that you don’t.  I’m just pointing out that if you use the free version, this is a question worth discussing.

I could not get on with the new version of docs and drive either.
Indeed since I don't need it I gave up.
Somebody here may well be a whizz kiid on this, but on Windows 7 I got nowhere with the shark or nvda, other than locking up the pc at regular intervals.
This is why I have reservations about these kind of cloud based systems to edit documents. In theory its great... but Google seem unable to leave stuff alone for more than a month or so.

Subject: [nvda] Urgent Help With Accessing Google Drive and Docs


Dear all,

I will now be required, for certain essential activities, be required
to extensively use Google Docs and in extension Google Drive for the
next several months to collaborate on documents. Given this, it is
imperative that I get well acquainted to Drive and Docs. However, that
is precisely what I am struggling with.

* I began reading AFB's NVDA specific tutorials on Google Drive and
Docs, but my experience with Drive is not exactly corresponding to
what has been instructed.
* This includes things like NVDA being very latent in the tree view
item on Google Drive, at random instances simply getting stuck in a
control which has nothing in it until I Tab out of it, all of which is
preventing me from even managing to go inside a folder and view its
files, let alone open a document and edit it.
* Due to these issues, I am currently relying on direct URLs to files
and documents to access them and subsequently work on and contribute
to them. Another alternative approach I have tried to adopt is to add
this particular shared folder to my own Drive, such that I can access
it on Windows Explorer on my PC itself. In this scenario, there are a
number of important files that are missing from the folder on my
computer which I have had confirmed with my collaborators. Backup and
Sync from Google on my computer contradictorily claims that everything
has been updated.

I am unclear on how to resolve NVDA's laggy behaviour on Google Drive
on the web or instead be able to get all the files in the shared
folder as they are newly created and updated on my computer. I would
greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions on a more elegant means of
using Google Drive and Docs. Things I intend to try for now are
confined to switching from Firefox to Chrome in hopes that an
alternate web browser may provide better support for NVDA with
Google's web apps.

Thanks.

P.S. I did press Ctrl+Alt+Z to enable screen reader support in Docs,
and switched views in Drive from grid to list.

Re: Emoji in Office 365

I feel if its a complex issue it might be best for your friend to get on to the github site and fill in the template. If it turns out to be a dodgy add on or something then nothing is lost, but as many people here are maybe not using the exact programs and settings it will be hard to advise without a little more probing of the situation.

Hello NVDA developers


A friend who is not on this list asked me to report that when using NVDA with Office 365 emoji are not shown; instead the number 12 appears in the text. This only happens in Office 365 and not in older versions of Office. He says that the opposition Shark handles emoji perfectly in 365. Is this a know issue?

Well not on an earlier version, but I've not tried it recently. Much like their solutions centre etc, it seemed to be a bit like a web page but without any accessibility hooks for a screenreader. however this was over a year back now.

Speaking of keyboard commands:

I'm having trouble getting the current character phonetically.  Using the laptop keyboard layout, NVDA plus period says the character and a second time says it phonetically.  But usually, it reads a character that is not where the insertion point is.  Also would like to be able to read, spell, and spell phonetically, the current word.  Can't seem to make it happen.

Hello list,

So I am mainly a Jaws user, but have been trying to make the effort to use NVDA more or at least become more proficient with it. The one issue I continue to have with NVDA and just can’t get used to is the keyboard navigation. I know it in part has to do with simple muscle memory with Jaws commands, but outside of the NVDA key (caps lock) plus L command to read the current line, I just cannot get used to not being able to jump around via paragraph or line or word, etc., like in Jaws laptop keyboard layout. Am I just missing something and am not aware of other keyboard navigational keystroke commands in NVDA or is there perhaps an add-on I can install?

Yes, I know there are all the numpad commands, but with Jaws at least, being able to keep one’s hands on the keyboard instead of having to switch back and forth adds up and makes a difference and comfort. And to be clear, I’m not looking for a Jaws clone and am aware that they’re two different products. I’m completely open to this different approach, but this navigational thing is for me anyway proving to be the one major stumbling bock to try to use it more.

I would appreciate any enlightenment.

Thanks,

If this program is like other programs that have full screen mode, the way to turn it off is to press f11.  That is usually a toggle that turns full screen on and off.  Full screen has nothing to do with a program being maximized and I have never heard of an instance when having a program in full screen doesn't cause problems.

Hi Alexandre,

 

I also can't reproduce this - with a slideshow running (in Office 365 rather than 2016) , I can change slides with Page up / Page down, space / backspace and enter, whether in the slide body or the notes (CONTROL+SHIFT+S).

 

Are you using any add-ons?  I can't think of any that should break viewing a slideshow, but it's always possible - press NVDA+Q as if to quit NVDA, then down arrow to restart with add-ons disabled to confirm it's not an add-on.

 

Otherwise, could you perhaps send me a copy of your log?

I don't know if there is a hot key or not but if you move to the address bar, control l, then tab a number of times, I believe you will find the notification.  Read it fully to see if you hear alt plus letter commands announced for the choices.  Using them is easier than looking for and opening the structure where you work with the actual items.

as Firefox is designed with accessibility way up on the priority list,
it's atypical that there should just be no way to get to one of its

shed some light on how it's supposed to work.

hurray, though I did have to change my synthesizer to the core voices in order to read the first part of this email. I agree. When going through book choices NVDA only reads the book title, author's name and a small fraction of the annotation. then jumps to the narrator's name.
i am having to turn Jaws on in order to get the whol annotation. I tested it with narrator and it only reads the title.

Dear John & List:
Have you tried running this issue by the MAS Disability Answer Group? They may have again answer or escalate it to engineering for you. Brian K. Lingard

Subject: Re: [nvda] Single key navigation on Google Chrome

When I got my desktop machine with Windows Pro a couple of years ago, the quick navigation keys worked. When I installed Microsoft Office, they stopped working. My computer vendor tried to track down the problem, but could not. One weird think was that the quick navigation keys would work when they accessed the machine remotely, but they would not work for me at home. I got a notebook computer with Windows Home about a year ago. The vendor configured it according to my specifications. The quick navigation keys never worked.

I am glad somebody else has this problem. Maybe the developers will look into it, even though it is obscure and would be hard to replicate.

Thanks,
John

Hmmm.

How long have you been running your installation of windows for?

This is probably an unexplained issue.

have you run dims and sac; I forget the command for dims.

Usually I just reformat.

And usually it is what I do first off.

Its usually not worth trying to research any of these issues
Especially if it is so obscure.

I mean sure, some coded component is probably damaged but unless you
Really need it like immediately then it is not worth doing.

The only situation where I had to really push it was when I had an
Emergency fix up job on a system for a family member that handled a business.

He had a 3-day deadline and he needed to get the system free of malware.

Freeing the system of malware was not the problem but fixing the damage was.

I would have usually just reformat and restored everything from the
Backup drives.

But we were not ready for that and I had no software.

I spent the next 48 hours researching, and I barely slept those two
Days, drinking at least two six packs of v every 3 hours or so to keep awake.

I got the thing fixed after searching all sorts of sites, finally
After searching some dodgy hacking sites I got a fix program which
Fixed the issue but me usually just reformat and do it properly.

Windows is far too complex if it breaks to even attempt to fix.

I have had this problem for a long time and have reported it numerous

with Chrome but with Firefox also. It is something in Windows that NVDA does not handle. It is not just a matter of registering dolls. I have tried that.

I just downloaded and installed Google Chrome on my PC running Windows 10, version 1809. After doing a search, I cannot get single key navigation to work (even though I have gone into browse mode). In addition, when I went to nvaccess.org via Chrome, single key navigation was not working to navigate around the NVDA website. Help. Thanks.
