Re: adobe reader 64 bit

To be honest, I can't recall (I must have done it awhile ago).  I did find this page with the download of the 64-bit version: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/download-64-bit-installer.html

But it sounds like you might have that already?  If it won't let you install over the top, you might need to uninstall the 32-bit version first maybe?

According to that page, it says the 64-bit version is only available in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK - I'm not sure if it will throw an error if you try to install it elsewhere.

Hi, Why not uninstall the 32 bit. Then install the 64 bit. Try that. Keep the 32 bit should the 64 bit cause you problems.

Version 21.10 of Joseph Lee's add-ons are on their way #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

I think you can consider this one of my parting gifts:

Version 21.10 of my add-ons (except Add-on Updater) are on their way. These include Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, Event Tracker, GoldWave, Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist, and Windows App Essentials. These updates will be made available via Add-on Updater in coming days (the thread will be updated then).

 

BEFORE YOU INSTALL:

  1. You must be running NVDA 2021.2 or later; Resource Monitor requires NVDA 2021.1 or later, but for consistency, please use it with 2021.2 or later. To prepare you for this change, starting today, Add-on Updater will not offer updates for these add-ons for older NVDA releases. This change is necessary because NVDA 2021.2 introduced a big change that will affect many add-ons next year, and I decided to apply this change early (this decision also aligns with my exit plan outlined below).
  2. If you are planning to use Windows 11, you MUST be running both NVDA 2021.2 AND Windows App Essentials 21.10 and later releases.
  3. As of version 21.10, Event Tracker is end of life from me. I have asked add-ons community to maintain this add-on further.
  4. Version 21.10 will be third to last update for StationPlaylist add-on from me (originally it was second to last but I decided to release a version in November to support StationPlaylist suite 6).
  5. For other add-ons except Windows App Essentials, version 21.10 will be the second to last release from me. The final releases will be made in January 2022, and to prepare for end of life, I’m not accepting suggestions for Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, Resource Monitor, and StationPlaylist.

 

I’m letting go of most add-ons so I can focus on other things in life. Those who have experienced graduate school education (masters and doctorate/PH.D.) can understand what I’m talking about – the first few weeks are easy, but as time goes on, school takes priority. I’m entering a phase in life where I need to balance between school and other duties, therefore I’m letting go of add-on development which was a big part of my life for the last few years. Besides, we now have people in NVDA community who are more than capable of maintaining add-ons like the ones I have maintained, and I’m confident that folks will make these add-ons better in the long term. I am counting on you, the entire NVDA community around the world, to show users respect by maintaining these add-ons in the future.

 

Key highlights of version 21.10:

  • As I mentioned, all add-ons from me will now require newer NVDA releases.
  • Localization updates for all add-ons.
  • Control Usage Assistant, Event Tracker, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, StationPlaylist, Windows App Essentials: takes advantage of control types refactor introduced in NVDA 2021.2.
  • GoldWave: in GoldWave 6.57, NVDA will no longer announce track names when you press play/rewind/stop keys.
  • Windows App Essentials: improved (and now official) support for Windows 11 apps.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Need help performing clean uninstall of NVDA

Gene
 

Do any NVDA add-ons make changes to the registry?  Before pursuing such actions as changing the registry, contacting the developer of the add-on might be a good step.  And if it does, you might then find out exactly what to change, thus eliminating the need for removing everything related to NVDA, then reinstalling everything and reestablishing all settings.

Hi all.

Yes, it is enough for clean all NVDA data, but delete keys from the registry don’t is very necessary. In the registry, NVDA save the folder of configuration (roaming or APPdata\locale) and the option of secure mode in secure screens like the user account control. So, if you uninstall NVDA, restart your system and delete the folder of configuration, you can install again NVDA and after your addons without problems.

Hi to all

Please, how to perform a clean uninstall of NVDA.

I and some other people have problem with lbl add-on, an add-on to use

along with Reaper. The author said that the only way he or she know is

to reinstall Windows, then install NVDA, then the add-on should work.

I'm not sure that error come from NVDA or not, but if remove via program

and feature, delete NVDA folder from roamming, and even find and delete

keys from registry. Is it enough to clean all NVDA data from a computer?

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Using NVDA with Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)

Greetings,

Thank you for the recommendations!
I should have thought of that...  :-(

I have never used Narator and that audio output should also come through.

I've also never used NVDA remote and have no idea what the pros/cons would be.
Is it capable of upgrading itself in that scenario?

These are great recommendations, thank you~!

Greetings,

I have a couple problems when using MS RDP with NVDA as described below.

Sometimes when I use MS RDP to access another Windows computer from my local Windows computer the audio from the remote computer is much lower than the local computer audio.

For example, I was using a local Windows 10 computer to RDP to a remote Windows 8 computer and I can hardly hear NVDA output from the remote computer, however, the local computer NVDA output is easy to hear.

I am not using NVDA remote, I'm running NVDA on both computers and using the audio from RDP.

The volume on the remote computer is set to 100%.

The sound mixer on the local computer does not include a selector for RDP.
All the selectors are at the same level.

If I go to the remote computer and disconnect from RDP the NVDA audio follows the volume control on that computer.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.


When I use MS RDP to access a remote computer and try to update NVDA on the remote computer the update fails with a file in use error.

The error reports something like the file is in use by another user and allows you to retry, however, the only way I know to resolve this problem is to go to the remote computer  and access it directly and complete the update.
A screen shot of the error dialog box is attached for reference.

Many years ago this did not happen.
When I first ran into this problem I reported it.
It has never been resolved since.

It is not always easy to go to the remote computer to do the NVDA update.

If there is a better way to do this please let me know.

Thank you

Re: Using NVDA with Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)

Russell, one thing you could try in terms of updating NVDA is to temporarily use narrator?


And, in terms of the volume levels, I also find remote NvDA dropping volume on/off at times via remote desktop, but, haven't figured out the cause as of yet.


Stay well

Re: dragon naturally speaking and nvda

 

Hi.
Hmmm, that would be nice, but I am not sure I can justify the extra
400 bucks for command creation though that would be nice.
I have contacted the local dragon training specialists here that are
the ones my blind organisation uses so I will see what they say
exactly what I should go for.

You will have to change 2 options for NVDA to work optimally, namely, get
the dragon bar which is a kind of control center for dragon to doc to the
system tray and enable MSAA for dragon menus from within the miscellaneous

Why not try the windows 11 speech-recognition first and then move to
dragon? When using speech-recognition, you also must get a good quality
microphone and sound card.

Get a USB sound card so that it is not subjected to internal machine
