Re: Mystery surrounding computer

Jacob Kruger
 

Chances are then that it's a hardware, or BIOS setting issue with the laptop's own physical keyboard - not sure what BIOS settings could be relevant, but, you might need to get a sighted tech to check that out for you.


And, FWIW, the reason I mentioned the physical keyboard in the first place is that, with all my laptops, I still just use external USB keyboards, since trying to work with a more compact, lapto keyboard, with, or without a numeric keypad would slow me down too much...<smile>

NVDA Vocalizer lag and Windows 10 lock screen

 

Hi list,

When I use Vocalizer for NVDA, it always seem to lag when I first turn on my laptop. The voice I'm using is a premium high varient, so not sure if that is the cause; my laptop is pretty powerful with Intel Core I5 at 2.5GHZ, 8GB RAM.

Also, when I powered on my laptop, NVDA won't always announce the Windows logon prompt like it does in Windows 8.

Has anyone experienced the issues I mentioned?

Re: Question regarding computer

Jacob Kruger
 

Another thing to double-check is under the OS control panel, make sure the input language is set to US english, since this can also affect interpretation of keyboard layouts at times.


Alternatively, if possible, also try an external USB keyboard, and see if it behaves the same way.

Re: microsoft word 2-16 and outlook 2016:

 

unknown on what to do.
Does it happen with other programs?
have you tried to clear your pc physically.
Has it happened in the past.
Things to check from mild to drastic.
First things first.
get your system into admin mode
type in search box in start menu cmd you get the command prompt.
hit shift control enter together and you will get admin permition say yes to the question.
type the following in.
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.
Wait for that to finnish.
Next try sfc /scannow.
next do the following chkdsk c: /f /x /r /v /l c:\chkdsk.log
you can read this later.
For those that don't know what some of these mean /x dismounts the drive
/f fixes errors /r is like the scandisk serface scan.
do that on all drives or as many drives are associated with your windows system.
reboot and have a cup of tea and it will come back in a bit.
Do a complete malware and antivirus scan with whatever you want.
Next, do a full defrag.
do the same as above with command prompt and admin but now type defrag c: and it just does it.
reboot again.
This insures there is nothing commenplace going up.
Update all your drivers from the manufacturer's website and bios.
On that note what computer is this you are having the issue on, if you know the model that would be good.
If you can't find it, get belarc adviser from belarc.com go to belarc.com and click free download, install the 600 kb file run it, then under system summery well either give me that or just give me the entire web page or well the model and stuff anyway.
I can search this.
Assuming its all updated and its not the issue.
Uninstall and reinstall office, uninstall office and search for removing office there should be a fixit for 2016 that will kill all of office there should be other scrubbers to clear it all.
Then put it back.
Uninstall and reinstall nvda.
Next get a program called speedfan search for it by name I forget it could be speedfan.com but the sites change and I havn't checked.
install it, go to hard drive page then do an online analisis on the drive, if you get any warnings from that you know it could be your disks.
Next go and use something like mutherboard moniter to look at your temperatures there may be others round.
you need to know what your temp should be of your various components, video card, board, etc.
Look at those.
Next, do a reset of windows and or a complete reformat and the problem if it is that simple will be gone.
I am suspecting hardware, the following needs sightling assistance.
1. open your computer and remove all components drives and cards mainly and dust all of them.
Also fans syncs, etc.
Your next plan is to clear dust out of the system with a compresser or something just be carefull of things, wipe down things with a clean rag then put it all back.
Regrease your heatsync.
If that doesn't work, install win7 and see if it works.
Or call microsoft.
Yes I know the solutions are wide ranging but I have had to do a few of these.
My latest oldest i3 home server/desktop box had a bad psu.
I got it cleared with a full clearout of dust and a regreese of the sync.
During a upgrade of a video card, the psu exploded and needed to be replaced and since then the system was more stable than it was before so maybe it was broken all along.
I have handled a friend's system who's cpu fan was so clogged with dust it was stuck fast.
I have had units where their psu fans jammed or had wires not in propperly.
I have even had bad drives.
Drivers and bios things have been a problem to.
I have just updated the primary newer workstation that handles a few high powered functions in the home network not because they were broke but that they hadn't been updated in a while.
I have not had virus issues but I have had a drive with serious defrag issues.
I have also had to handle virus and malware situations on my remote units from time to time.
If this happens on only office try a complete removal and reinstall of office.
Do the sfc and dism comands.
do a standard chkdsk /f on your hard drive.
search for and run defrag.
Do a basic malware scan not a full one.
clear out your junk with disk cleaner.
send me your model and I will look for things.
Talk to ms access support it may be an issue.
Finally if in doubt, shut the door and put your ear next to your computer and listen to its noise.
If you hear a rattle or a whine then you should back your data up if you havn't allready and moniter it.
In most cases what I put down are the worse case scenarios I have in a checklist off the top of my head.
Usually when I fix things I usually run with worse case scenario in case it is.
Most of the time its startup programs, and misconfigured software.
Sometimes its more than that.
In one case the system was to old.
In another after trying everything under the sun I couldn't figure out what it was.
In another, after trying everything including updates, scans, reformats and the like I put my ear to the unit andsure enough something was slowly going somewhere, I guessed the drive or something.
Its harder to diagnose laptop failier but even on the most quiet pcs they still use big components.

This is really odd.
there is a scan pst file somewhere if that is the issue, some mail can become misbehaved but hmmm it could be an nvda issue who knows.
Not exactly part of the problem, I had an issue on a system using office 97, back before the big band days.
At that time resources were limited, I told the user he had to switch mailers and since things were being really bad, I did a full reformat which fixed everything then started fresh with eudora.
He lost all his data though.
On a recent time, I had a server on the blink that was being replaced, however I wasn't fast enough and it blew its master power unit on its raid array.
All data is incripted, but it needs that supply to function, that module was a burning mess and the system wouldn't boot.
There is a way to get the data, however its secured for a reason.
Luckily most files were on an external drive or on several cloud drives thank god for imap.
However a large email database was lost and while this was not a large issue well there you go.
My only complaint with outlook is that it saves all its data in humungious data files and hmmm I don't like that idea.
At least with eudora/thunderbird, etc all data is in different files.
What you may want to try if you have all your email information.
1. go to control panel, mail.
delete your accounts.
back up your pst files then delete your profile.
go to where your profile was stored and empty all locations.
Go to where your outlook app data is stored and clear all that.
Then restart outlook.
Ms outlook will realise it can't find anything and will crash, it will then recreate itself.
After that, if you use imap or whatever, I used the map since I had a multi device situation, I set it all up, then either import or from the mail control panel, add your pst file back in, make it the default one and not the data file that is there.
I have done this and it worked.
The only thing Ithen had to do was repair bits of icloud that got corrupted and resync the data from that.
This crash happened earlier this month and it works now.

Outlook 2016 works with NVDA but there is one issue which renders
it almost unusable. At least on my computer, when composing a
message or replying to a message, NVDA locks up randomly. The only
way to recover is to reboot the computer. I have raised tickets

Technically I could use my other comercial readers but since nvda needs to be used on a lot of things well.
I have got used to the ribbon in office and the shortcuts and it works as it should as long as I know the various code sequences.

Hi Paul,

I have indeed resorted to writing my replies in Notepad and pasting
them into Outlook. However, It is one more step and what if I have
to quote parts of a message? More formatting issues for one thing
when I transfer data between programs. So yes, there are workarounds
but this situation must be addressed.

Hello Pranav and all,

Thoroughly annoying when the half-composed message is lost. Perhaps
a plan B is available? Compose the reply message in Notepad or
similar and only open up Outlook to copy the completed reply from
clipboard into the required location. This also allows simple regular updates while composing.

Kenny,



Outlook 2016 works with NVDA but there is one issue which renders
it almost unusable. At least on my computer, when composing a
message or replying to a message, NVDA locks up randomly. The only
way to recover is to reboot the computer. I have raised tickets
about this problem.

Hi how well does outlook and Microsoft word 2016 work with nvda? I
am planning on upgrading to office 2016 soon, and I was wondering
how accessible Microsoft outlook 2016 is.

Dear Joseph,


Please create a text tutorial. You can then convert it into audio using synthetic speech. Your outline is fine. However, this material is technical and we will need to reference repeatedly. Sequential audio does not lend itself well to such a use case.

Check the Status column in the Select Columns to Display menu.

Hi, everyone,


When I had windows live mail, I'd put it to where it would be in different threads. When I replied to a message, then I'd hear "read, replied" for the message I was replying to. How would I do that in thunderbird? Just wondering.


Thanks.

Re: Question regarding computer

 

Well thats weird, I'd get a sightling to go to bios and make sure that all keys are in normal function mode.
I had to do this for my f keys in my toshiba with their setup program because they are set for a multimedia mode and I didn't want that.
The alt keys though hmmm.
If they don't work have you tried another keyboard?
Or have you asked hp about it.

Good morning list; Marv here. I have a question regarding a peculiarity of a notebook computer. The computer is an hp pavilion g6 notebook pc; the alt keys do not work; at least not normally. They seem to not work at all except they do things visually according to my stepson. If anyone knows how to get them to function normally, I would appreciate knowing how to do this.
