Re: Time to make a portable etc

It sounds to me as though the installation froze for some reason.  In such a case, I doubt a standard cancel option would accomplish anything, but developers may have a different opinion.  It would be interesting to try the installation again as an experiment.  Instead of a typical cancel option, perhaps something that actually stops the operation by using the task manager or some way of forcing a shutdown when you issue the cancel command would be a better idea, inn other words forcing a shutdown, not what I would think a typical cancel option does.  My guess is that a typical cancel closes the installation utility but doesn't force a shutdown.  But I'm just speculating and those with more technical information may correct me.

Hi


usually some of the drives USB ones and sticks are pretty quick. I ended up shutting down the computer after 20 or so minute It was a 16 gig stick formatted correctly.


Yet another stick may be very quick in less than a minute.


I do think in cases like this one I wonder if a cancel button could be put in or do you just grin and bare it until it is done? how ever long it takes.

Hi guys


I am in the process of making a portable version of nvda that I am
putting onto a usb stick. I downloaded nvda 2019.2.1 then clicked on it
to make the portable version as usual


Has any one on the list when they have gone to do this have it take 5 or
10 minutes or longer? I thought it might of been this 16 gig stick been
slow and the message still is not telling me it has been done.


But I was also thinking because you can not close the screen etc until
it is done could maybe a cancel button be put into it if it takes this
period of time to cancel the process.


It might of been quicker to make it on the hard drive then copy it across.

I can not stop the process unless i shut down the pc.

Hi,
2019.3 is available in beta form at the moment.
Regarding recent updates: incompatibility is intentional - it was planned
for months.
I'll release Add-on Updater 20.01.1 which will advise you to turn off
automatic updates if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 for now.
Cheers,

Hello group,
Today I have found out, that some addons are available. When I wanted to
download the addon Systrai list, Nvda said, that a new version is not
compatible with version of Nvda 2019.2.1.
When I wanted update Nvda 2019.3, I found out, that no update is available.
What can I do for I could have a new version of Nvda?
Is a new version of Nvda stable version?

Yep, takes about five minutes. NVDA will beep and let you know it successfully created the portable copy.  😎

Password agent

Marten Post Uiterweer
 

Hi,

I am using a password manager called Password agent version 2.6.3.
Nvda will not read tekst in the listview in this program, so it is
useless with Nvda.

I am also using Jaws and Jaws will read this list so I still can use
this program. Reclassing the window is not necesary with jaws.

Is there a possibility Nvda can be used? A specific setting in Nvcda?
Reclassing windows is not possible for as far as I know.

Hi.

Good to know 😉 I installed the update then restarted NVDA and turned off the automatic checking of add-on updates, saving the configuration after.

Hi list my add on updater just tried to update and can’t am still using 19.2 any word on when the next NVDA is out?  I did listen to the blind bargain podcast and it did say that the new NVDA was going to be in beta longer than usual.  Also is that why my winamp add on didn’t work right?  I did mention it on my radio show because there is a chat on out of sight for the programming language NVDA uses.  Blind bargains says that NVDA will be moving to python version 3 and they are saying lots of new features.  When that is ready I’ll just go and update the add ons manually.  I’ll have to post it to our station chat list.  So any word on when 2019.3 NVDA hits?

Re: is it just me and my roommate

Gene
 

You can't generalize from one experience.  I tried the beta and, while I didn't use read to end much, I had no problem with the small amount I had read.  If you specify what problem you had, it might help the developers look into it but since I've not seen any complaints about it until now, and the beta has been out for perhaps two weeks, perhaps more, this may be a problem with your system and may not be a general one.

Hello All:

     I had to go back to NVDA 2019.2 from NVDA 2019.3 because it was not
working well with read all on any program either email, web browser, or
any other program that uses say all to read documents!

     In NVDA 2019.2 it all works well!

     NVDA 2019.3 sure needs a whole lot of work before it is ready for
prime time!

Add-on Updater 20.01.1 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

First, apologies for compatibility issues many of you have experienced with recent releases from me. As a result, I’m delaying release wave 4 (Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, Object Location Tones) until NVDA 2019.3 release candidate is released (originally scheduled for January 6th).

 

Add-on Updater 20.01.1 is on its way. This release rectifies shortcomings discovered in 20.01 by:

 

  1. Mentioning steps to pause add-on updates: if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 or earlier, an additional text has been added to the message you get after installing this add-on, telling you how you can pause automatic add-on update checks for now (until 2019.3 is released).
  2. Release context matters: because NVDA 2019.3 is in beta testing phase, message text shown for 2019.2.1 users will reflect whether or not 2019.3 stable version is available or not.
  3. Focus on the message: the first time you restart NVDA after installing this add-on, automatic add-on update check will be paused. This is to ensure that you focus on the message, understand it, and take necessary steps. Automatic add-on update check will resume after restarting NVDA a second time provided that you didn’t pause automatic add-on update check facility. Manual add-on update check will still function.

 

Originally I was going to partially revert recent update releases, but decided against that because:

 

  1. It will break features in one or more add-ons (this affects StationPlaylist users the most).
  2. It will lead to further confusion, especially for people using NVDA 2019.3 alpha/beta where an “upgrade” is really a downgrade.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph


Styles toolbar placement?

 

I'm working through the NV Access Microsoft word training book. I've found, for various reasons, that working with different styles is far easier than initially thought. But, the keyboard command to open the styles toolbar is extremely awkward. I tried to add the toolbar to my quick access toolbar, but there are so many, style, commands not in the ribbon, I can't figure out which is the styles toolbar. Does anyone know which one it is?

I mainly use the styles toolbar to select all text of a certain style. Is there a way to add that command to the quick access toolbar? I could create a macro to do this all for me, but that's way too many steps and the VBA isn't accessible with NVDA.
