NVDA+n, p, d

Choose your preferred dictionary, and add an entry.

Create a regular expression entry.
Replace this text. Note the special characters:

^blank$

With nothing (empty replace field).

Hit OK a couple of times, and you should be good to go.

Note, that if you want it effective *only* in Outlook, you will need something like the new Application Dictionary add-on that was talked about several days ago.

Hi Brian,

 

As some one who has done this on numerous times, it can be done.  Making backup accessible is great but, you only have the option to use a talking WINPE to do the restore.  As indicated in a previous message, I have created a flash drive with various additional software.

 

All I do is boot of the flash drive which loads the win PE and run the restore from there.  I have software on the disk which allows me to even run various other tools to check hardware etc.  Most of these programs are portable and do not need to be installed.

 

I even used GRML which is a talking Linux to do a restore when my hard drive got corrupted. Like most things, there are times when you need a pair of eyes and that’s when services such as “be my eyes” can come to the rescue… I generally stay away from the so-called rescue disks because these do not have speech.

 

So, This can be done, it does need lots of additional knowledge to make work.

 

Thanks.

I'm not sure what's being referred to as I'm using the most recent Insider preview 19624 and there still is the accessible option of creating a recovery drive.  Quickest way to find it is entering Recovery in the search box and the Create a Recovery drive option is displayed.

The Recovery drive is nothing more than a tool for restoring a backup, and unless you have a version (not created directly by Windows) that uses Windows PE with a screen reader built-in, it's not accessible either.

For those that are also members of the JAWS for Windows Support Group there is a huge ongoing conversation occurring there about this.

I feel, in certain ways, like I'm talking to walls over there.  There exist several "very geeky" options, which require using talking Windows PE, that are accessible, but are not simple to implement, if you wish to be able to do both ends of the process - system image backup and restore from a system image - with full accessibility.  And when I say "restore from a system image" I'm not talking about doing this from within Windows, as it is the rare case where one does a restore from within Windows.  I care about folks being able to do a recovery from a catastrophic failure, most typically the failure of your main system drive, and I have yet to see any reasonably easy utility that supports this.  Some are recommending Image For Windows, which I have never used.

I have written tutorials on taking backups using Macrium Reflect Free, which is an excellent utility, and which is 100% accessible for taking system image backups.  But it is not accessible for a system restore from a catastrophic failure (like virtually every thing else) because the bootable recovery environment is not Windows and does not include a screen reader.

My main concern is that people actually take full system image backups whether or not they can personally do a restore in the event of catastrophic failure or not.  Most of my sighted clients have no idea how to do a recovery (even if you teach them, unless you have the opportunity to practice - and heaven forbid you do - you forget) and have to call in assistance.

No matter what you may end up doing, it's far more critical to take system image backups so they are available for someone to recover using them, than it is to be able to actually do said recovery independently.  

Here's the tutorial on Macrium Reflect to create full system image backups:  Using Macrium Reflect Free with a Screen Reader

Try it with Narrator.

Sometimes it works well for these onetime problems.

It is no NVDA, but it does help some times.

Hi Dan,

 

Well, I had to do the same thing on Thursday.

 

You are correct that NVDA reads the beginning of the recovery wizard.

 

You can accessibly get to the recovery wizard and go through the steps to point where you start the recovery process thereafter, NVDA only reads the Cancel button.  Using Objective Nav or any other methods does not read anything on the screen.  Even when dialogs come up, they are not read.

 

When doing my recovery disk, I was asked to insert a 16GB memory stick which I did but, this was insufficient.  I got an error and had to get sighted assistance to realise that a dialog was on the screen.

 

Once I ran through the process once more, I inserted a 32 GB memory stick, the process completed but, NVDA did not read the success message and I had to use object nav to eventually find the “finish” button to dismiss the dialog. This is not accessible.

 

Thanks.

I decided I needed to create a fresh recovery drive.  I discovered that NVDA speaks the buttons but nothing else.  Has anyone else seen this?  Is this an NVDA issue or a windows system issue?

 

Thanks.

Re: Lost voices and speech synths

 

If you have lost voices you can add in the voices in narator settings
then add the language voices you want.
Sometimes windows updates its language packs and things happen.
You can probably readd the voices you want back in.

Re: Torrents

Hi Vlad,


I was able to install mu torrent on my system using NVDA.  If you install the OBJ-pad add-on and put it in scan mode, which will allow you to navigate around the entire screen area, you can access the controls of the installer and install the torrent client onto your system. Hope this helps.

Good morning everyone,

 

I hope I’m wrong, but it seems to me that NVDA doesn’t like Torrent clients, or rather, Torrent clients don’t like NVDA. I’m in desperate need of an accessible, configurable Torrent client. In my experience so far, BitTorrent and UTorrent have inaccessible installers so I can’t even try them. I also played with qBittorrent, Tixati, PicoTorrent, BiglyBT, Halite And Transmission. Some are totally inaccessible, others don’t allow me to change any default settings. I admit I’m running out of ideas. If anybody had better experiences, would he/she kindly share them with me. I’d be very grateful and happy to receive a bit of help/advice. It would be so much better to use torrents instead of direct downloads, especially for Linux distributions or on sites like archive.org.

 

Many thanks in advance, and warm regards.

Re: NVDA won't install on win10

Folks: please don't get safe mode mixed up with S mode. Safe mode is loading Windows with minimal software and drivers running and S mode is Windows fully running with protection from installing any desktop applications. Only apps from the Microsoft Store will run in that mode.

Good you got it fixed.  What a pain in the but you had to get a sighted person to help you get it out of safe mode. I wished Microsoft created some sort of talking softwear  to get us out. That’s if you can’t get a sighted person to help. If you live with one or have access to someone who can help. Great. Some of us blind folk may not be as fortunate to have a sighted person near.

Hello Everyone,

 

Thanks to all who offered suggestions. I got the machine fixed. It was

in s mode, the narrator on it wasn't speaking well at all so I

borrowed a pair of eyes, got it out of s mode, and then was able to do

an NVDA install. After that an update from 1803 to 1909 and the

machine was humming along much better.

Again thanks.

Dave.

Re: Toggle Passing Keys in NVDA?

Hi,

 

Is this a web based application?  If it is, you can use “single letter navigation mode”. To turn it on or off, press <shift+insert+spacebar>.

 

Thanks.

Subject: [nvda] Toggle Passing Keys in NVDA?

 

Hi there! I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to tell NVDA to stop processing commands for a time, similar to the "pass next key through" command. When using an application/ widget that has heavy keyboard accessibility, NVDA's commands really hinder the use of the application, and having to press NVDA+F2 between each and every keystroke would make - say - a game using its own keyboard commands practically unplayable. I thought perhaps the "application sleep mode" was what I needed, but not only does the command listed on the reference do absolutely nothing for me, it apparently stops the speech synthesis as well, which I don't want.

What I'm looking for is a key stroke that tells NVDA to start ignoring/passing keys until that same keystroke is entered again, or something to that effect.

Searching for this has yielded nothing helpful because any way I phrase the question, I simply get linked back to the user guide or commands quick reference, which so far as I've seen, doesn't have any solution. Is there perhaps an addon that would allow this, or have I missed something in NVDA's main feature set?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi,

 

One way I have used in the past is to use a registry entry hack to have your sound drivers come up in “safe mode”.  When I had to then go in to “safe mode” I could use NVDA. I have not tested this on Windows 10 yet.

 

Thanks.

Re: windows program for creating a recovery drive is not fully accessible

Deenadayalan Moodley
 

Hi Dan,

 

Well, I had to do the same thing on Thursday.

 

You are correct that NVDA reads the beginning of the recovery wizard.

 

You can accessibly get to the recovery wizard and go through the steps to point where you start the recovery process thereafter, NVDA only reads the Cancel button.  Using Objective Nav or any other methods does not read anything on the screen.  Even when dialogs come up, they are not read.

 

When doing my recovery disk, I was asked to insert a 16GB memory stick which I did but, this was insufficient.  I got an error and had to get sighted assistance to realise that a dialog was on the screen.

 

Once I ran through the process once more, I inserted a 32 GB memory stick, the process completed but, NVDA did not read the success message and I had to use object nav to eventually find the “finish” button to dismiss the dialog. This is not accessible.

 

Thanks.

I decided I needed to create a fresh recovery drive.  I discovered that NVDA speaks the buttons but nothing else.  Has anyone else seen this?  Is this an NVDA issue or a windows system issue?

 

Thanks.

Re: Remote Relay server

Hi,

i've found the right way to start the server.

using service_manager.cmd as administrator.

server is working and i can connect my computers.


    thank you

I am not the original poster, but maybe you are getting an access denied error because it needs to be ran as an administrator. I would suggest running command prompt or power shell as an administrator then run the server from their. If you are running Windows 10, do the folloing to run power shell as an administrator:
Press Windows key and the letter x at the same time.
Down arrow to power shell admin.
press Enter.
Press alt y when the user access control box comes up.

Hello list,

i'd like to run my own relay server, does someone know where to find a compiled one for windows?

i've been to the GitHub page of remote relay server, but, if possible, i'd prefer to avoid compiling step.

any idea where to find the server and a simple guide?


thank you
