With the most recent build, you don't need a talking installer for Windows 10.  Assuming your system is configured to do this, boot from the install DVD and CTRL-shift-enter launches Narrator.

Hi Sean


I have on this pc 2 copies of Windows 10 PE versions and  for windows 10 one  is 32 and 64 bit.

I used to have a windows 7 version might still have it but would have to look.


I can only drop box one at a time my limit for drop box would be used up if both were done.


Is this what you are talking about they are the ones with nvda on it. Never used it but they are about 700 meg or so or maybe bigger.


not sure if it includes the ico image though.


Let us know if you want me to drop box it?

Plus which version.

Hi,

Lately in the last 'next', releases some support for Tb have been added
that tells a count for e-mails read/unread.

I find this slowing my usage of Tb, is there a way to disable this?

Also, what is the best place to talk about 'next' releases?

Re: Accessible Fediverse resources

 

Some Friendica instances can host facebook friends, I think, but typically, no. Open source, federated software, does not play well with closed software.

As for chat and IM, I just added Matrix this morning so revisit my blog post.

But as far as facebook goes, use Miranda NG, a universal IM client. I had a link to a particular blind version years ago but I lost it.

I've put in a request for Miranda NG to add Matrix support, but it's not even on their roadmap yet.

Lastly, use m.facebook.com instead of the normal site because it's plain HTML.

Re: Windows PE ISO file with NVDA installed

 

Thanks jean, I don't personally need the pe images myself but its good you have them.

I'd actually be interested in making my own if it came to that.

But bar failing windows updates, the way I have things is mostly standard, but I have few tweaks I need to have active.

Re: Windows PE ISO file with NVDA installed

 

To be honest, tweaking excessively could be dangerous.

There are some tweaks in winaero tweaker I do not use because it makes my system unstable and I have to backtrack at best, and clean install at worst.

I just apply what I absolutely need.

Surprisingly thats quite little.

I turn uac off completely because I need to modify files say game tracks, winamp plugins in program files folders which I can not do that easily with uac on.

I disable ribbons because I don't like ribbons.

I set a few misc things but I don't need much more than 5 tweaks, at least 3 of them I deem essential but thats about it.

I do have a little hack allowing me to use extra voices from cortana but thats about it.

I do not generally fiddle with the registry I don't even clean it.

But what if your work needs you to muck about like this.

If you truely need to do this on your system you use daily for your personal and work stuff and thats the choice you have, then add all your tweaks you really need into a batch file or several batch files, zip em and put them to a cloud share.

You can take images of the os but I am not sure about accessible restores.

If you can afford it, II'd either run vmware workstation or something.

Now I must admit, thats not completely ideal and accessible.

You need to buy workstation if you want to test xp for example the player doesn't cut it.

And you need resources hardware and such to allow for officient running etc.

Failing that, I'd buy a system to monkey on.

I plan either to have a system like this in the future to test stuff or a server with a lot of vms on it.

Vms can be coppied.

A system where its not crutial to have the system always working is probably better but you will have to buy a system of course.

Now there are ways to get older systems from ebay that are cheap if you just want to see what this button does, find if it breaks, and so on.

If it breaks, then reformat and do it again.

I sadly do not have that sort of system, though with the selling of my piano and some old broken speakers, I will actually for the first time ever actually have space for a throw away box.

Sadly due to the covid thing I may not have the cash for one right now but still.

If this is your live system, I would personally not doodle like this.

You shouldn't need to custom tweak your live system that heavily at all.

If you lose track, some time down the road you may lose track and things will go bang on you.

Not counting windows and software updates which as we all know can and have broken things I have experienced this first hand.

Of course I can make the problem go away but this system is my own system.

Its why I havn't really gone insider yet on anything bar xbox.

I have a standard configuration and thats it.

If you really need to tweak like this, there are, were pes about.

Sadly the opopanax stuff is gone and I am not sure what to do about this.

To be honest there is probably a way to make a pe yourself but I have no idea how to or accessability of the software.

But an imaging software I have used before ages and ages before, is drive image xml by runtimesoftware.org.

Its accessible at least the version I used had alt b for backup and alt r for restore.

The data was compressed and stored in xml files.

It even had a cabinet for pe disks.

Thing is now we have windows 10 setup you probably will never need a pe.

A pe is only really needed to diagnose things and fix things, and get files off.

If you have done that much tweaking you should probably know about linux, in that reguard, get something like linux mint, ubuntu mate, debian, or grml and you can probably recover files off your system, then if you screwed up, reinstall windows if its that bad.

Windows changes so much anyway that your image will become out of date really quickly.

If you have a server or nas or something to do images and friquently can do that with something like ghost or asincronis then hmmm well do whatever.

I have not needed to bother with imaging my system.

I keep the program files and data backed up on 2 external laptop drives and have a flash drive and dropbox handling critical things.

If push comes to shove, and sometimes it does a lot of places I get my stuff from have ways to get the keys I own back.

Some people will still need contacting but still.

Hi


The file was bigger than I thought.


About 1.3 gig and just looked I have no space to drop it into as I only have a 2 gig limit and they are used for files on my website.

Re: browser whatsapp file sharing

Hi


If I remember right if it is the web or app version go to the person you want to send it to then maybe type in a message, then go to browse mode and go up to attachments you can use shift/B key to do this. When you get to it I can not remember if I used nvda key + enter key to open that section. It then gave me 4 clickable sections these were not read out I think the first section was to send documents etc and the one after it I think it done your camera to take a photo? I would really have to go back in as they are not named. Then after you picked your file then is send after that.


I might need some eyes to confirm again before I add it into the tutorial as without been named I did not think any one would use it.

brian,
i heard various positive informations about this program from several people.
they told me
making backup in the windows invironment not Dos,
after creating backup on windows,
we can specify one drive for restoring backup.
we can consider drive c to be formatted and reinstalling windows again.
drive snapshot format our desired drive and restore our backup without
needing bios invironment and after finishing reinstalling windows,
windows becomes restarted and works as normal!

recovery like having your main disk die, I cannot see how this utility is

Virtually all of them are accessible if you're doing a recovery starting
from within Windows itself, but that's not the kind of recovery that's done
most often except by those who have "experimental machines" that they wish
to restore to pre-experimenting state afterward.

I’ve never used a dual system boot on the same computer. But my

Will NVDA let me hear the choice when the computer gets up to that

I will be using Windows seven and ten on the same computer. Reason is
two pieces of very much used recording software won’t work in Windows ten.

            I have nothing on restore simply because I've never had any instance to even try to do one with a screen reader.  Given that most recovery is done through a dedicated bootable disk, and not Windows itself, since you are actually trying to recover a Windows System Image, it's doubtful that there is any way to do so with a screen reader.  If someone knows of a recovery utility that either has a screen reader built in or that can otherwise be made to speak I'd love to hear about it.

            You could use any backup & recovery suite of your choosing, but I wrote a tutorial several years ago on using Macrium Reflect Free to take backups.  The first page deals entirely with installing the utility, which you'll do only once.  The second is the set of step-by-step instructions for actually taking the backup.  In this day and age of ransomware, I do not recommend that backup drives remain attached to a machine other than when a backup is being taken or a recovery performed.  Any drive that's attached if ransomware hits gets encrypted, and in the case of a backup drive that makes having the backup pointless.

Science has become just another voice in the room; it has lost its platform.  Now, you simply declare your own truth.
