Re: I Can't get the latest version of NVDA to install

Hi, not sure what mb means? anyway your idea about letting your machine to install apps from any where is the best idea I have seen yet. let us know how you get on. I think a complete reinstall of windows is maybe the way forward, but I know it is a drastic step! but now and again You have to just jump. again good luck.

Hi, I just now saw this post.
I was using Windows Defender + the latest version of Malwarebytes, the paid version with real time protection.  I deleted the MB and the problem still exist.  And, I'm still not clear on how to turn off Defender but many list members have stated that they are certain that both Defender and MB do not stop NVDA from downloading.  Maybe, there is a small chance that I have messed up Defender, its menus or not at all friendly to me but, I kind of doubt it.
I would like to find the last version of NVDA so that I can try installing it.  Then, I would try to update to the current version. That wouldn't resolve my problem but it would at least get NVDA on the system.
I wonder why I can still download software from other sources.
I have NVDA on my bedroom laptop and it works great.  But my living room PC is right out of the Twilight Zone!

   Maybe their server has been down for over one day.

   The only thing that I have recently changed on my end is just that I upgraded to Jaws 2019 on both computers.  Of course, I tried J17 just in case.  No dice.

   Hi



   is this the first time you have ever installed NVDA or have you had a earlier version.



   the file that wouldive come down would be named nvda 2019.1.exe and when you click on it or try to get it to load it will make a musical sound then come up with a documentation screen. YOu will need to agree to it by pressing the space bar then tab to the first option which will be install to your computer then press the enter key. If it seems to be getting stuck installing it it might be that the UAC screen has come up and nvda can not see it if this is the case use the ALT key + letter Y to say yes to it and it should keep on installing then say it has been installed  with a ok button.



   Or is it just not going any further after you hear the sound?

     Hi all,

     I went to:

     http://www.nvaccess.org/

     and downloaded a very small file that looks like it is suppose to install NVDA.  When I open it, I get a few seconds of music and then nothing.

     I have tried with both Chrome and IE for over 24 hours now.  So, maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong?

Hi


Sorry accidentally copied the wrong file from the recorder and renamed it before sending which i usually do.

I listen to a little bit of it or all of it.


This is the correct one it can be found at https://www.dropbox.com/s/nf82y6t1tlwqza3/taking%20a%20quick%20glance%20at%20microsoft%20edge%20chromium%20based%20browser.MP3?dl=0



I have also pointed towards it on the nvda road test programs page under browsers and mentioned it is been tested etc.

Hi guys

\

If any one is interested yesterday i downloaded the new late alpha version of the new Microsoft Edge chromium based browser Microsoft is working on.


It is basically a over view of what it is like menus settings and using it on the web.


Later on i will probably replace it with other things to do with the browser. maybe more down the track.

or write a tutorial? on the basics


If you want to download it and take it for a test drive you can grab a copy from https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/?form=MO12FO&OCID=MO12FO

You can listen to what was recorded so it gives you a basic overview of what it is like and can be downloaded or listened to from my drop box account at https://www.dropbox.com/s/0sqqqo9vwer8s0i/taking%20a%20quick%20look%20at%20microsoft%20edge%20chromium%20based%20browser.MP3?dl=0

I forgot to mention i was using Windows 10 version 1809 and nvda 2019.1


it seems also from off that page it will be coming to windows 7 and 8 and other platforms.

Hello again,

 

I now have the portable version on a thumb drive, but is it possible to get NVDA to start when inserting the drive?  If so, how?

 

Thanks again.

Re: purchasing Kindle book using NVDA

Hi Brian


I was not really following the thread on which browser was the easiest to use to get the books but have just written up a basic tutorial for kindle for pc for nvda. I could mention the successful steps using the browser for others to duplicate.


I do think it is more there web page but you get different results with different browsers.


By the way your tutorial was posted last night to the nvda tutorials for other programs page under Microsoft word the basic's i think it is called. I still have other material to go up before i let the list know but recent updates are on the main page of the website.

My name is Judy Jones, and I am mainly a Jaws user, but am going to start
using NVDA more, and thought this list would be a great resource.



Are there things that Jaws can do that NVDA does not do so well? I have
already found a couple things NVDA does better than Jaws, and would like to
hear all pros and cons.



Thanks to a special friend of mine whom I hope is on the list, I now have

Judy,

This may also end up being a "tool to task" situation,
too. I've seen both NVDA and JAWS be better at doing one thing or
another, and if you know that you'll be doing that one thing, versus
another, switching between screen readers is often the solution.

For those in Windows 10 environments it's almost certain
that Narrator will be coming into the mix more and more, too, as
Microsoft is making major revisions to its command structure to make
it far more JAWS-like (and NVDA-like, for that matter).

Re: Microsoft Chromium version of the Edge browser beta download

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Brian


Not yet but will be coming. I grabbed the version for windows 10 and while looking around on another page there is mention for 7 and 8 etc I think also for apple and i can not remember if it said android.


 The link comes off the page i downloaded it from.


so what is the saying stay tuned.


Later on today i will do a recording of going through it to give people a idea of what it is like and post it to the list or website.

Hi,

I advise waiting until beta version comes out to do a tutorial on it, and when you do one, don’t forget to remind people that this is really a repackaged Chromium.

Hi



if any one is interested later on today i can do a audio recording of nvda been used on it and to show nvda so far seems to be working nicely with it. Plus also link to it for others to try it out if they missed the first link.



It will give some a idea of what it looks like etc planning to do some updates tonight to the website so can include or link to the recording in the email.

Apart from the word dev in the title bar and using the chrome menu setup for the menus it handles the web pages nicely it seems as though you can use all of the quick navigation keys in nvda. A bit more playing around and going into the settings etc but you would think you are driving chrome browser.
