Re: MS Access

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Brian,

 

I’m interested in your reaction to that tutorial.

 

I didn’t elaborate, but my last experience of positive action with a database system was in DOS with SQL. Like you, I found SQL a very comfortable and efficient tool to resolve all my database problems. Unfortunately, the GUI interface and WYZWYG editors threw me out of the database world.

 

Now, I am very hopeful of returning to it with this new tutorial.

 

Do you know who this person is that is creating these tutorials?

 

I have seen two of them so far and am very impressed with the clarity, relation to NVDA usage and proven productivity!

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

I actually need to take the time to go through the tutorials TheeQuinn has put out there just for my own curiosity, but the tiny (and it was very tiny) bit that I picked up from the page and comments suggests that it focuses on the GUI for MS-Access.  And as the first, and only resource that addresses that for screen reader users, all I can say is:  Bravo!

But since I see she's "entered the fray" here, I'm curious to solicit her, and perhaps others', opinions about using MS-Access from the command line and with SQL and data files.

I'm not blind, but when I was first learning RDBMS systems that's truly the only way you accessed them.  That went by the wayside as the primary access method as GUIs developed, but in the case of a screen reader user I often think that using the command line interface with SQL and data files could be much easier, and much less error prone.

Just wondering if anyone is actually going that route, and what they have to say about it.

Re: Google Chrome no longer working properly for me

I’ve seen very odd behaviors that seem to have no relation to the screen-reader and are corrected by closing and running it again.  Its happened to me once in a great while that I couldn’t copy and paste text until I closed and ran the screen-reader again.  When it comes to odd problems of this sort, just doing these things, regardless of how logical they seem will likely solve such problems.

Yes, I definitely closed google Chrome several times but for some reason did not even think about doing that with NVDA this time around.

It's working fine here but, I think you will have to put a little more into describing what is happening. Just saying "it's not working" or "links don't show up properly" doesn't really give anybody anything to work with.

Hello there,

 

The preview pane was already unchecked, from what I saw.

For now I’ll use Gene’s suggestion to press and hold cTRL while moving between itmes, until either you guys or I find another solution.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Cisco, have you checked to see if the preview pane in File Explorer is enabled?

Press alt-V to go to the View tab on the ribbon. Navigate by pressing the tab key until you move to the Preview Pane button and if it says that the button is pressed then press the space bar to disable it. Let us know if that makes a difference.

I use Windows 7 and my problem isn’t quite the same but my solution may work.  Without going into detail about my problem, there are conditions when responsiveness when moving through a list of folders and files is slow on my machine.  One thing I do and you can try is to hold control as you move.  If I do that, speed returns to normal. 

 

Try the following:

Hold control and move through the list.  When you get to the thing you want to select, release control and up and down arrow to leave and return to the item.  It is now selected and you can press enter on it or do whatever you want.

Hello everyone,

 

My name’s Francisco, I’m a highschool student who has been using NVDA since circa 2014.

I use NVDA daily for an array of things, from homework, to entertainment and so on.

Enough about me, here is the problem I am facing:

Both in Windows 10 and 11, which I’m currently using, NvDA lags behind when navigating folders and files in File Explorer.

Half a second to a second passes from when I press up or down arrow, to when NVDA announces the item under the cursor.

As you can probably imagine, it can get quite annoying at times, particulary when I’m trying to be quick about opening a file.

First letter navigation helps, but having a lot of files starting with the same letters doesn’t help as much, just to balance out things.

My question is, has anyone experienced this kind of behavior when using NvDA? If so, how did you fix it?

If you don’t use file explorer and use an alternative, what would you recommend?

Thank you for any answer.

Have a good day.

Best regards.

Francisco.

Re: MS Access

Gene
 

I listened to a little of it and it sounds like a well done tutorial.  I would say that in future, music shouldn’t be used beyond the opening.  I find it distracting during the actual teaching.  In particular, I find the rhythmic synthesizer effects distracting.
 
I hope this is taken in the spirit of constructive criticism.  As I said, the material itself seems to me to be well presented from the little I’ve heard.

I'm not blind, but when I was first learning RDBMS systems that's truly the only way you accessed them.  That went by the wayside as the primary access method as GUIs developed, but in the case of a screen reader user I often think that using the command line interface with SQL and data files could be much easier, and much less error prone.

Just wondering if anyone is actually going that route, and what they have to say about it.

Hi,

 

I cannot find your name but I have listened to the initial tutorial on using Microsoft access  with NVDA and I would like to congratulate you on an excellent piece of work.

 

I used to use Access regularly but when windows developed, access became unusable with my screen reader and I turned to excel for all my database and spreadsheet work.

 

I have a new archiving project coming up soon and your message is encouraging me to look at using Access for the storage of data elements.

 

Certainly, I will follow up by making myself familiar with access  now that you have given me a real opportunity to do so!

 

 

All the best and many thanks,

 

Cearbhall

Hello there,

 

Jene,

Thanks for your solution, it works wonderfully!

Also, thanks for the titbit of info about the SSD  not being responsible for giving me the info about the list I’m in.

 

Bryan,

I’ll try to restore the defaults on trimming and such, it’s good to know it might affect the disk’s lifespan.

Best regards.

Francisco

I use Windows 7 and my problem isn’t quite the same but my solution may work.  Without going into detail about my problem, there are conditions when responsiveness when moving through a list of folders and files is slow on my machine.  One thing I do and you can try is to hold control as you move.  If I do that, speed returns to normal. 

 

Try the following:

Hold control and move through the list.  When you get to the thing you want to select, release control and up and down arrow to leave and return to the item.  It is now selected and you can press enter on it or do whatever you want.

Hello everyone,

 

My name’s Francisco, I’m a highschool student who has been using NVDA since circa 2014.

I use NVDA daily for an array of things, from homework, to entertainment and so on.

Enough about me, here is the problem I am facing:

Both in Windows 10 and 11, which I’m currently using, NvDA lags behind when navigating folders and files in File Explorer.

Half a second to a second passes from when I press up or down arrow, to when NVDA announces the item under the cursor.

As you can probably imagine, it can get quite annoying at times, particulary when I’m trying to be quick about opening a file.

First letter navigation helps, but having a lot of files starting with the same letters doesn’t help as much, just to balance out things.

My question is, has anyone experienced this kind of behavior when using NvDA? If so, how did you fix it?

If you don’t use file explorer and use an alternative, what would you recommend?

Thank you for any answer.

Have a good day.

Best regards.

Francisco.

This isn’t a hard drive problem and defragging won’t help.  the problem is slow responsiveness in telling you what you have moved to in a list of files and folders.  The hard drive isn’t being used to provide the information as you move.  You are already in the list.

Hi Francisco, I’ve had this problem various times with various computers intermittently going back to at least Windows 7. Sometimes defragging the harddrives helps. Does it happen on all drives? Does it happen on thumb drives? Does it only happen on a USB-connected external drive? It could mean your drive is on it’s way out and needs chkdsk run on it desperately as well, and you may need to clean the dust out of your machine physically, dust causes it to overheat. Does this happen with narrator or JFW if you have it?

As an aside.  That's too frequent and can lead to issues, too.  Windows does a perfectly fine job of managing SSDs all on its own.  The only thing I recommend doing in that arena is getting the manufacturer specific management software for your actual drive, which gives you access to more information, and sometimes a couple of non-standard features, but once you've set what you want set let everything as far as TRIM be done by Windows and/or your drive management software.
