Intro & Question

Larry Honaker <kc8pdx@...>
 

Greetings All,

 

I am beginning the process of learning NVDA and as a former programmer am interested in trying my hand at a little Python programming.

 

I downloaded Python 3.7 and executed the Idle app.

 

The Python shell came up, but I do not see any prompts with NVDA or Jaws.  What am I missing and how do I proceed?  Any guidance is welcome.

 

Thanks!  Lh

Worsed thing I ever did to a cumputer, not counting getting a virus a couple of times, was spilled water on it when I was stoned on pain meds from having my wisdom teeth pulled.
A week without computer while taking College courses is not fun.


Re: Fn Key Issues

Hello,

Often times, a machine may have a hotkey combination which will change the behavior of the function key. When this is not the case, there should be a BIOS setting. Yes, Sarah, technically you probably could use sharpkeys but there really isn't a need as this behavior can be changed.

Thanks.

My machine broke several times during the insider builds. Everything from
having to do a system restore, to the machine making and odd noise, to
losing sound. I had to completely reinstall windows. It fixed everything.

I usually only download the stable builds because I'm afraid of breaking
something and not being able to fix it, LOL.
Not to mention if the computer stops talking, I'm up the creek.


Re: latest accessible version of tor browser?

Hi dan


The latest version of the TOR browser is not accessible it used to be. at present after it is setup it will read the title bar but no more not even the menus or what is on the page it's self.


You would have to go back at least a full version either 7 or 6 of it which was.


I would only pop into it now and again and at present will state on the web page of mine it is not accessible now.

Re: Firefox fails with Google spread sheets

Sarah k Alawami
 

I use chromewith sheets all the time and it works, under windows anyway, not under mac os. And what do you mean fierfox fails? Do you mean it thros an error? If so what is said error? If it does not what happens, does the browser lock up, does the browser crash? Does the page not load?

Hi!

I have a question, but I don't know, that It is because of NVDA. Maybe yes.

I would like to use Google sheets, because I'll need It to new work. Problem is, that very often Firefox fails. Do You know this fail notification.

I have a question. Have You similar problems with It?

I have tried to use Google Chrome, but It isn't possible with NVDA and Jaws is difficult to use, I think new versions.

Thank You for Your help.

Re: latest accessible version of tor browser?

Gene
 

It's a browser that connects to a remote server, sending information to you from that server.  it makes what sites you go to much harder for people to trace if they want to see where you browse.  For example, if you want to look at a specific site, the Tor (spelling) browser doesn't connect to it using your Internet company.  It uses your Internet company to connect to a Tor server.  The Tor server then connects to the site you want and sends the information to you.  This also helps people in countries where there is Internet censorship connect with sites that are blocked by the country.
 
The Tor browser is also used to connect to sites on the Dark Web, but I don't know technically why you can connect with that browser and not with other ones.

Re: latest accessible version of tor browser?

If you have a way to set up location on the computer you can just run your regular browser through the toor proxi. I lost the instructions as that was 3 years ago for me. Failing that you could set up a proxi on a remote VPS and run your regular browser that way. I did this for several months and although it was slow, it worked fine.

Take care

Thanks Jean, I guess I'll just have to wait and see if Microsoft fixes the problem in version 1903.

I don't have the problem when the Headphones are turned off.
I don't have the issue when they're plugged in with the cord. I've
tried updating the drivers, but even when everything's up-to-date, the
sound going in and out persists.
I originally thought it was the headphones, but I got a new pair for
Christmas, updated to Windows 10 version 1809 and had the same problem
as before.

You should be fine. As long as it's a stable build lol.

Do you have the problem if you use something other than a Bluetooth connection with the same sound card?

I had a laptop once that the sound card started going out on.
Oddly enough, it really only effected the voices for the screen reader
I was using.
This is probably more of a computer question, but every time I update
to Windows 10 version 1809 I start having sound issues?
When I contacted Microsoft, they told me it was a bluetooth issue. that
would be fixed in a future update. Does this happen on tablets as well?

I'm not sure. When I used to run the windows insider builds on my laptop I
had several issues, including sound and Bluetooth problems.
