Re: I'm not able to update to the latest version of nvda!

 

Hi,

It won’t interfere as long as you copy it, although the file might be named differently than what you expect, as the file transfer agent will first download the file to the temporary directory. As always, the usual way to obtain stable versions of NVDA manually (apart from updates) is visiting nvaccess.org website.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Joseph,

I am wondering. I almost never get the full installer from the website now that you have the automatic updater which prompts you with every new release.  As per your description, I was able to find the updates folder under program files (x86)\NVDA \systemConfig folder structure. If when I am prompted to update NVDA, I should choose the later option and then go and copy the file from the updates folder and leave the original in that folder, would that interfere with the automatic updates when a few minutes later, I chose to install the update?  If not, that's a nice way to get the original installer in the event that you have a system crash where a reformat is necessary.

Technical: the following goes into how NVDA update actually takes place (a bit geeky):

The NVDA updater component will check for, download, and apply NVDA updates. This is divided into the following parts:

  • Update checker: this component will access NVDA update server and will fetch update information based on certain details about your machine such as Windows version, processor architecture, NVDA version you’ve got and what not.
  • The NVDA update check interface that presents the actual update check dialog.
  • Update downloader: this component consists of a file transfer agent and the user interface to report download progress.
  • NVDA installer: updates NVDA given specific flags.
  • Update check timer: a timer that will activate the components above every 24 hours if NVDA is told to check for updates automatically.
  • Update check database: a Python-specific data file (a pickle file) that records the last update check timestamp, the update version presented, pending update installer file (if this is such a case) and other settings.

 

When you or NVDA check for updates:

  1. NVDA will access its own update server hosted on nvaccess.org.
  2. NVDA will pass on information about your NVDA installation such as whether it is an installed copy, Windows version, processor architecture, NVDA version, and if you enabled them, information about current speech synthesizer and braille display in use and other various information used for collecting statistics.
  3. NV Access server will then present either a dictionary-like data detailing any updates it finds, the download URL for the update so the update download agent can fetch it, the hash of the update file and other information. Alternatively, NV Access will say nothing (returns empty data), which means there is no update.
  4. NVDA will then present the appropriate message (update is ready or no update).
  5. If you do choose to download the update, after presenting the donation screen, the update download agent will download the update file, periodically letting NVDA know the transfer progress.
  6. If you do decide to be reminded, NVDA will not remind you for a while.
  7. After downloading (i.e. transferring) the update file, NVDA will ask if you would like to install now or do it later.
  8. If you do choose to install then, the just downloaded NVDA installer will run with special flags, telling it to update NVDA.
  9. If you choose to install the update later, it’ll save the downloaded installer to a special folder named “updates” inside user configuration folder and will add an option to exit NVDA dialog, which will let you install NVDA whenever you are ready.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Reading messages list in Mozilla Thunderbird

Betsy Grenevitch
 

Brian, thank you for such great step-by-step instructions. I did not have the add-on so have it now and have changed my columns. I really wish you would write a tutorial with such great step-by-step instructions on the most commonly asked questions about NVDA.



On 4/10/2020 1:56 PM, Brian Vogel wrote:
The following presumes you have already installed the previously noted Mozilla Apps Enhancements add on, have restarted NVDA, and have Thunderbird up and running with focus on the Thunderbird window.

1. Hit NVDA+H.  A dialog entitled, Manage columns, appears.  That dialog is composed of a list of the columns in the order they are currently being displayed from left to right, with the leftmost column at the top of the list.

2.  The next thing I suggest you do, but this step is optional, is to hit ALT+O, which will cause the list of Thunderbird columns, in Thunderbird itself, to be displayed with a checkbox in front of those columns you wish to have displayed, and nothing (unchecked) for those you want to hide.  It's worth down arrowing through that column list and deciding if there are any currently checked (displayed) columns you'd like to hide, and uncheck those, and vice versa.  Hitting ESC closes the Thunderbird column selection process and throws you back to the Mozilla Apps Enhancements dialog.

3.  Back in the dialog column list, gain focus on the column that you would like to move.  If you want it to be to the left of where it is (and that means it would be announced first), then hit ALT+U to move it up by one position.  Repeat the ALT+U as many times as necessary to get it where you want it.  If you want this column to be announced later than it currently is (moving it to the right/down the list), hit ALT+D as many times as necessary to get it where you want it relative to other columns.

4.  Review your column order by going to the top of the list and down arrowing through it so you know what the "First announced to last announced" order is.  If you find a mistake, then repeat step 3, moving the column or columns to where you want them.

5. Navigate to the Close button for the dialog and activate it.  You're done.

Re: How can i make sure that i have the latest version of nvda?

Help isn’t in preferences.  It is in the main menu.  Also, that doesn’t explain how to find out what the latest version is.  NVDA has an automatic alert if updates are available.  Unless this has been turned off, you will receive such an alert when you run NVDA.

Hi,

What you do is go to the NVDA menu with insert N. Arrow down to preferences and hit the right arrow to open it. Then arrow down to help. Hit your right arrow on it and arrow down to "about". Hit enter on it and you should hear the version of NVDA.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
Unless I didn't read it properly, did you tell us which NVDA version you've got? If you have any add-ons, you may run into problems as older add-ons will not work properly on NVDA 2019.3.1.

I see, this clears that up alot. But I thought office 365, current versions did not run on any OS except win10?

Hi,
They will remain with Windows 10 App Essentials for now for two reasons:
1. These issues are caused by UIA notification event, found in Windows 10 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) and later.
2. Both fixes for Word 365 will be removed from the add-on once they are part of NVDA (one of them is as of recent alpha snapshots, the other will be part of NVDA alpha once I submit a pull request to NV Access).
Part of the reason why I bundle fixes like this in the add-on is in consideration for those using a version of NVDA that does not include fixes like this - a while ago I released Windows 10 App Essentials 19.11.5 emergency patch to let NVDA 2019.2.1 users use Edge 79 or later without turning off UI Automation, which NVDA 2019.3 do have a built-in fix for; same will be the case with Word 365 fixes.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello,

I recently noticed that several fixes for the UIA issues in office 365 were bundled together with Windows 10 app essentials. However, Microsoft Office is a distinctly seperate product from Windows 10, therefore, wouldn't it be prudent to have an additional addon called office365 essentials to deploy these and future fixes=?

Re: Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings

 

First, I would like to thank everyone who has posted the link to Jonathan Mosen's blog page where the noted audio book can be downloaded:  https://mosen.org/zoom/

The direct download link for the book is:  Download Meet Me Accessibly free

For those who may not have JAWS 2019 or later, and may want to use Zoom with JAWS instead of or in addition to NVDA, there were JAWS scripts written for earlier versions of JAWS, downloadable from:   Download the free JAWS scripts

A great deal of additional detail can be found on Mr. Mosen's blog page, and I suggest folks have a read through it.

I am also asking that no more messages in regard to this audio book be posted.  This territory has been covered, many times, over the last several weeks.  The information is available on the group archive, and those who need it later should be searching the group archive for it.  Searching the NVDA Group Archive

Discussions about actually using Zoom are best conducted on the NVDA Chat Subgroup.

Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings

Richard Kuzma
 

The book is by Jonathan Mozen – not sure if I spelled his name correctly or not,

It is very good but uses JAWS instead of nvda, but the content should lend itself to NVDA.

 

Here is the link to his page for info on the book and to download it.

It is very well done as I have listened to most of it.

Thanks

Thanks and good luck,

Hi,

With regards Zoom isn't there a tutorial or podcast on the subject? I
can't remember who did it.

Thanks.
Dave.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and zoom


Hi list ken here with a question. Was just now taking a look at the zoom
site to see how it worked online. I have attended a couple NFB virtual
events but by phone. Is there any instruction on how to use zoom if I want
to go online rather than the phone and is there any add on with NVDA that
might be useful on it? With all the coronavirus stuff wiping out events we
are going to be using zoom quite a bit I think. We have an account now for
our state affiliate of NFB with all the conference call lines tied up. Also
our national convention will be virtual this year.
