Indeed, and thank you for recognizing that, Molly.   This is a perfect example of a topic that fits, precisely, something that's included in the group welcome message/rules and monthly reminder:
-------------------------------------------------
It is presumed that the majority of members will be using NVDA, and possibly other screen readers, as part of their daily routine.  This being the case, before you post a message you have to consider whether the question you are about to ask is actually about NVDA itself, or about the program you’re using it to access.  Questions of the form, How do I use . . . with NVDA?, are very seldom about NVDA, but are almost always about the program being accessed with NVDA.
-------------------------------------------------

Discussing how to actually use a given piece of software, where any discussion of the screen reader being used is truly incidental, is something that belongs in the Chat Subgroup or on a group dedicated to that piece of software.

Jacob,

            This question is off-topic for here, but I'll try to give you some help before I lock it.

             First, if you are experiencing unexpected issues immediately or very shortly after any Windows update has been applied, then the first thing you should do is use the Windows 10 built-in capability to uninstall the latest update that’s suspected of causing the issue:

1.     Open Settings, Update & Security.  This should take you to the Windows Update Pane by default.

2.     In the Windows Update Pane, locate the View update history control, and activate it.

3.     In the View Update History dialog, locate the Uninstall updates link and activate it.

4.     In the Installed Updates dialog, the updates will be listed in groupings, with the groups alphabetically ordered, and the items within each group ordered by date – most recently installed first (if no one has changed the defaults).  In most cases, you’ll be looking to uninstall a Microsoft Windows update, and those are generally the final group.  The number of updates available for uninstalling is shown in parentheses after the Microsoft Windows group name.

5.     Almost all Windows Updates will have a KB number associated with them, and if you know that use this as what you search on for the actual update.  Select it.

6.     Activate the Uninstall button located above the list of updates, and the selected update will be uninstalled.

If uninstalling the update causes the issue to disappear then either there is an issue with the update itself or it possibly could have "burped" during being applied and not been applied 100% correctly.   One hopes that the next time it applies that it will either have had a fix made and/or will not have any issues during installation.

There is a group, Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users, that is appropriate for this question and where it's likely to get an answer or answers far more rapidly than it might here:
Subscribe: win10+subscribe@win10.groups.io
Post: win10@win10.groups.io

We also have the NVDA Chat Subgroup, but in this case I'd strongly suggest "going to the source."

This topic is now locked.

Re: Going to Top/End of Document with Braille Display

David Csercsics
 

There is but only if you have the braille extender add-on installed. If you want to get something useful from NVDA I recommend you install the add-on. The commands are a bit weird though. Nothing at all like VoiceOver or JAWS so it'd take a bit to get used to. Once that add-on is installed then you can read the documentation and see all the commands assigned. I think maybe the braille note touch emulates a brailliant, but I'm not sure. If that's the case I can probably help you if you have trouble.

Hi Arlene,
For ripping, I use GoldWave (goldwave.com). Unfortunately that isn't free, and it isn't a dedicated CD ripper even though it is very good at it.
I used to use the free dedicated ripper CDEX (cdex.mu), until it became riddled with adware. Of course, there is still the portable version, but that is quite a bit older.
Note that these tools cannot burn CD's.
For burning, I have been using a program called CDBurnerXP (cdburnerxp.se) for a while now. Don't get confused by the "XP" in the name - I have successfully used it on Windows 7 and beyond. Note though that the default installer comes with InstallCore (some kind of advertising platform), so to get the clean installer and/or portable version you need to click on the "more download options" link on the download page. That is a free burner that can do everything from CD to DVD, data or audio.
All three tools are more or less totally accessible with NVDA and are, in my view, a lot simpler and a lot more flexible than using Winamp's equivalents or the builtin Windows tools.
Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Damien.

Yes, mine did, but this machine is nearly six years old now--my, how time does fly! I hear a lot of the newer ones now don't, though. I'd be lost without a CD Rom drive because my choir music from church still comes on CD's. I suppose, though, I could talk my choir director into getting Dropbox and we could share files that way if necessary, but for now, I can still use and rip the CD's he gives me on this machine using CDEX. that's good you can get external CDRom drives.

Going to Top/End of Document with Braille Display

kelby carlson
 

Is there a way to go to the top and bottom of documents with a Braille display? I am using a BrailleNote Touch, and the typical dot 1-2-3 and 4-5-6 chords do not work. I also do not see this command in the input gestures dialogue.


Auto alt text with Chrome.

 

First, yes, I am well aware this is so Google can get more data from websites. A part of me has trouble caring, honestly. If it results in a free product and free services, well, that's a price I'm more than willing to pay. Anyway, the below is a support page on this new Chrome feature and below the page will be NVDA instructions on how to enable this. I doubt Microsoft will enable this because they are more privacy conscious, but here's instructions anyway.

The support article in question.

NVDA Instructions.

  1. Navigate to a page you know has images without alt text.
  2. get your NVDA cursor to the unlabeled image.
  3. Hit Shift, F10, to bring up the context menu.
  4. Expand the sub-menu, get image descriptions from Google.
  5. Select either only for this site or for all websites. I chose all websites.


locked OT: Windows 10 update behaving oddly since yesterday - Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.418)

Jacob Kruger
 

Yesterday evening, as I was telling windows 10 to shut down, it informed me that it had to install an update, so I told it to go ahead, and, left it running until it had powered off.


Now, this morning, the start menu, focus returning to things like thunderbird, after I close a message was reading, etc., etc. are not cooperating like they did yesterday.


In case it could make a difference, I tried firing up the latest alpha version of NVDA running in portable mode, but, no change.


In other words, wondering if anyone else is experiencing this, and, if I should try something like a clean install of NVDA, or is this simply the latest tweak to windows 10's own interface - for example, neither windows key + M, or windows key + D will bring focus to the desktop, or minimise all windows, and, if I manage to get focus into the windows status bar, using windows key + B, or by tabbing around a bit, it only seems to allow me to navigate through roundabout 5 icons/items, whereas, if I use the sysTrayList NVDA add-on, then there are 9 of them hovering around there.


In other words, is this a brand new tweak to the windows UI, or is there possibly something else I should try find/correct?


And, asking this here, since I have never had this form of a problem in terms of windows UI interaction before while working with NVDA, so, don't really think there's an issue there, but, don't know where else to ask.

Stay well Jacob Kruger

Yes, mine did, but this machine is nearly six years old now--my, how time does fly! I hear a lot of the newer ones now don't, though. I'd be lost without a CD Rom drive because my choir music from church still comes on CD's. I suppose, though, I could talk my choir director into getting Dropbox and we could share files that way if necessary, but for now, I can still use and rip the CD's he gives me on this machine using CDEX. that's good you can get external CDRom drives.

I use Cdex, but all I do is insert my CD, hit f9 and it starts ripping. I don't do anything else and I don't know how the program works aside from that. I find my ripped CD in the mp3 folder under users/music/mp3. Hope this helps. Oh, and this is under windows 10, but I used it like that under Windows 8 as well.

Hi

I didn’t know you could still do that. Without a cd drive my laptop seems very thin and kind of flimsy.

You can still buy laptops with cd drives but I would go with the externals if you can.

Firstly there is extra thickness in laptops with drives and its heavier.

The drives are fine a bit faster but its not like you use cds daily mostly anyway.

The portable drive can be used on many devices.

My ultrabook workstation doesn't come with a cd drive.

However there are cheap lg ones you can  buy and the drives don't cost that much.

In fact there are drives designed for basic ultrabooks and the like and I'd never go back.

hi arlene.
windows xp and seven are both my favorite operating system.
both of them have there advantages.
but i dont love change just for change without any logical reason for myself!
about windows ten, i really hate it and i am sure that never use it.
i dont want an operating system that i am concern for my privacy,
updates itself automaticly,
and i should disable tens of settings that it becomes usable for me
without concern about privacy!
moreover, i always follow technology news and win ten fortunately has
not even one important feature or change that i cant live without it!

dont worry, anyone who wish to discuss furthere, she-he can email me!

In the case of his add-on, there is nothing you can do if you are
going to stay in Windows XP with NVDA 2017.2 or 2017.3. He has not
chosen to

make it backward compatible even with NVDA 2019.2, so
2017.3 is a hopeless case unless you write your own.

For some add-ons, it is not that difficult to make them compatible
with old

versions of NVDA. However others use features that are only available
in newer versions of NVDA, or are so difficult to implement in older
versions that nobody wants to bother given how few people use those
old versions.

Sometimes some developers will make an effort to make sure things work
for users who won't, or can't, advance along with the vast majority.
But that is completely optional, and you can never expect that to
happen, just be grateful when it does. In this case, it isn't
happening.

I am sorry if this sounds harsh, but if you choose to stay in the
stone age, do not be surprised if you are more and more isolated
there, with fewer people looking back to see if new things will meet
your needs.
By choosing to stay in the past, you are choosing to miss out. That's
just how it works.

catch is that this add-on is only going to work with NVDA versions
2019.3 and above.

If you're interested - so far a not very stable version available:

Damien Garwood <damien@...>
 

Hi Arlene,
For ripping, I use GoldWave (goldwave.com). Unfortunately that isn't free, and it isn't a dedicated CD ripper even though it is very good at it.
I used to use the free dedicated ripper CDEX (cdex.mu), until it became riddled with adware. Of course, there is still the portable version, but that is quite a bit older.
Note that these tools cannot burn CD's.
For burning, I have been using a program called CDBurnerXP (cdburnerxp.se) for a while now. Don't get confused by the "XP" in the name - I have successfully used it on Windows 7 and beyond. Note though that the default installer comes with InstallCore (some kind of advertising platform), so to get the clean installer and/or portable version you need to click on the "more download options" link on the download page. That is a free burner that can do everything from CD to DVD, data or audio.
All three tools are more or less totally accessible with NVDA and are, in my view, a lot simpler and a lot more flexible than using Winamp's equivalents or the builtin Windows tools.
Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Damien.
