Hello to all. I was trying to log onto http://simmarket.com and I cannot for the life of me find the button labeled as "account" that was there last week. I bought some stuff from there, and now cannot get it. This is crazy! Can someone please give me a hand, and no clapping please. lol! I'm using brave and edge, and both show the same thing. Using nvda 2020 what ever was released to the public a few days ago.


Take care to all, and have a happy Saturday.


thanks to each of the NVDA developers and those who answer all our questions!

The answer to that is yes, but not all that easily.  Getting into the details of why is not on-topic here.  If you want to discuss this further create a topic in the Chat Subgroup with a title along the lines of, "Using One Drive for storing system images," and I'll pick it up there.

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

Hello!

    Is One Drive able to serve as a backup for restoring Windows so one does not have to install everything from scratch?

    I have Microsoft 365, so backup space is not an issue.

    So if I do a clean restore of Windows 10 I can get all my software back all at once instead of getting it back piece-by-piece.

    Thank You! For your response!

This is not and would never be an NVDA function, but a function of Windows.

And it's amazing how easy this answer is to find via a web search.  Start here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/138736-move-open-app-one-virtual-desktop-another-windows-10-a.html

Then, if that's not enough, start cruising through the results from, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=move+running+app+between+virtual+desktops+Windows+10, yourself.

This topic is now locked.  It belongs on the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group, but it's not at all related to NVDA or any other screen reader.

Hello,

As far as I can tell, virtual desktops in windows are not that convenient, and being windows-10 specific and not really related to accessibility, there is no reason for nvda to do it either.
There is probably a third-party software or more that allows it available on the internet, though.

Or make a portable copy on the c drive or any other drive and then simply copy or cut and paste it wherever you want.  That's one of the main points of portable versions of programs.  You can place them anywhere and it doesn't matter what drive they were created on.

 

You still may not have room on the f drive to place the portable copy after it is created but you will have the portable copy made and ready to place anywhere.

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.
