Re: NVDA Slowing to a Crawl again in Thunderbird

Kevin Cussick
 

Right, this may or may not fix things but can't hurt.

General sluggishness with Thunderbird. I have a feeling, though,
that this is a Thunderbird issue and nothing to do with NVDA.
Try disabling Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Enable Global Search and
Indexer. Note that this isn't accessibility or screen reader specific,
but I personally found that global search didn't help me and was a
performance killer.

That’s a good idea. What happens if I need to do something on the computer that requires admin privileges? I thought portable copies of NVDA could not read programs ran in elevated mode.

Create a portable NVDA and install remote. Set it up to autoconnect. After that, create a self-extracting archive which automatically runs it.
For example, see 7-Zip's help file for -sfx.

Re: Can I bundle the remote addon with NVDA?

Tyler Spivey
 

Then you install the portable copy onto the system with the option in the Tools menu.
You could also try running as admin after you run it the first time. If you use 2019.3, the default action of nvda.exe is to restart, so that might work.
In either case, the person at the other end will have to hit alt y when UAC dialogs come up.

Re: Can I bundle the remote addon with NVDA?

 

Hi,
I think it might be best to zip them up into a single zip file, and have this person install the NVDA first followed by the Remote add-on.

Re: Thunderbird address page.

hmm, that is exactly what I am using.

Ok, here is a big question for everyone. Using a windows 10 computer, what email clients do you use that allow Google sync? I know the native mail and people app does that, but i feel navigation in the mail app still need some accessibility improvements before I call it reliable.

portable copy with 2019.3.1

Brian Moore
 

HI all.  This seems to be new. Always keep a portable copy of NVDA on a usb thumb drive that I carry around.  Yesterday, deleted the old one and made a portable copy of my currently running 2019.3.1 It worked but for the first time, none of the add ons I have installed came with it.  There was a portable configuration but it was default settings with no addons.


Anyone else seen this?

locked Re: NVDA and wordpress

Nimer Jaber
 

And with that, I am going to lock this thread as we have seemingly moved away from NVDA accessibility to talking about how to use Wordpress. If you would like to learn more about Wordpress, a resource was given for a mailing list, and questions of such nature can be sent to the NVDA chat list as well.

Thanks.
