Re: Any accessible hex editors for screen reader users?

Hi, Paul. XVI32 is accessible if memory serves--& sometimes it
actually doesn't. It's also a disk editor.

Brian v, just so you know, often these hex editors don't show the
screenreader the cursor, which is what prompted Paul's question. He's
trying, I'm pretty certain, to avoid the very tedious, time-consuming,
& bandwidth-sucking process of downloading something only to find the
cursor, for him, just isn't there. It's a real pita. So,
unfortunately, search engines aren't much help in this regard. HTH,
gentlemen.

You didn't miss it, I had described its existence, but mentioned that I never used it.  Tried it out last night and it works like a charm (at least for all my accounts, which are all using IMAP access).

The reason I preached caution, and you may need to go back and rearrange your Sent folder, in particular, is that what you generally want as column order for inbox and any "incoming message box" you might sort/filter things to is different than you want on your Sent folder.  For instance, in any incoming box most of us are interested in the field that our e-mail client uses to show who a message is from (From in the case of Thunderbird, Sender in others).  But in your sent box, since it's you that sent it, the From field is always going to show you, and you don't care about that.  What generally gets shown in Sent is the To field, who you sent it to, which is the important bit on a sent message.

So be aware, that if you do a global change to all your mailboxes based upon your inbox, you will likely need to go back to the Sent box and tweak it, and it alone, to have the columns you want to be looking at, in the order you want them since some of those will not be the same as inbox.

Is there any way to apply the column change to all folders, or do you have to change it in all folders separately?
Yes.  If you look back in the original instructions, I mentioned that when you hit ALT+O to open the list of all Thunderbird columns in Thunderbird itself, beneath that list are two controls:

Restore Column Order  (to Thunderbird Default Order)
Apply Columns To (which I have never used, but it allows you to apply your settings above to other folders in Thunderbird)

After you have your columns arranged exactly as you'd want them to be in all folders, use ALT+O to open the column list and get focus on the Apply columns to control.  Once activated, you are given two suboptions, Folder and Folder and its children.  You will want to use Folder and its children.  When you open this suboption you are then presented with a list of the e-mail inboxes you have (generally your accounts) along with Local folders.  When you select either one of the accounts, that will then open with the account at the top, and all of the subfolders beneath it, allowing you to select individual subfolders if you so choose.  In this case, just select the account at the top of that list and all IMAP subfolders should then be arranged in Thunderbird with the same column order you have arranged for the inbox.  You must go through the Apply columns to control and its suboptions for each account, if you have multiple accounts.  If you also want your local folders, usually only Trash and Outbox, to have that same order you need to do it for them, too.  I would proceed with caution on the Trash and Outbox folders.

Re: server software in general

 

Gentlemen, I am kindly asking that this topic be shifted to the Chat Subgroup if it is to be extended, along with the other Windows Server specific topic as well.

Neither is NVDA centered in any meaningful way.  The Windows 10 for Screen Readers group would be more directly suited to Windows Server questions.

Re: server software in general

any server will be easier by using the terminal even in windows that is command line or windows power shell commands. ubuntu mate is the easiest to load, set up and use to get going quickly.


Re: windows server os

Josh Kennedy
 

just use ubuntu mate. its free and you can install it without assistance. if you are just using it for a server it will work fine as far as accessibility goes.

You know, it's really becoming beyond frustrating to give those asking for help direct links to the download pages for the things needed only to have those be ignored.

I already offered the direct link to the  Add-Ons Documentation add-on, which is right there, again, and to the NVDA Audio Themes package file:  audiothemes-6.0b2.nvda-addon

I've installed both, and tested every blessed thing I've mentioned.  It's time that you, Bhanu, did the same.

Hi,
I always thought of a hex editor as something that can edit binary files rather than something that works with colours. I could be wrong though.

To check what version of NVDA is running, press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu then press t followed by v to view the NVDA log.  The second line of the log file tells you what NVDA version is currently loaded.

Hi,

If you tell NVDA to remind you later, it will remind you of an update later.

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

Not to mention that the beta won't be picked up by the check for updates feature (NVDA+N,H,C) in a production release.

I can't imagine why NVDA 2019.3 would not pick up on 2019.3.1 unless it was already offered in the last 24 hours and declined.  I seem to recall that if you decline it sets some sort of flag that won't offer the update again until the following day.  If the same flag is also checked by Check for Updates and happens to be set, that might do it.

Joseph, I imagine you might be able to confirm or refute my speculation and if so, please do so.
