Figured it out.  you need the hybernate option enabled before the fast

startup shows up.  For some reason on my laptop hybernate was off.

Either you set it incorrectly or there is another problem.  There is a shortcut command that allows you to change the setting on the fly.  You don’t have to be in NVDA to do this.  Use the command NVDA u to cycle through the options.  Try moving through them, stopping on the one you want, and see if it works as expected.  If not try rebooting.

Hello  ALL,

I don’t know what I have done but hear is my problem.

When pasting a large number of files from the clipboard to another location nvda used to beep in ascending notes to give me an idea as to how far this action progressed.

For some reason this doesn’t now occur.

In object orientation I set the progress bar to beeps but the result is the same.

Any help please as I prefer beeps to speech saying “two percent”.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

Re: win 10 power settings

I don’t know what the problem is but unless or until you can disable it, you can easily work around the problem.  I can’t tell you just how often to do so, but perhaps every three or four days, do a restart, not a shutdown.  If you do that, Windows will completely reboot.  If fast boot is currently on, it won’t fully reboot if you shut down and then start the computer again.
 
You can experiment if you wish.  You may be able to go longer without a restart.  If you don’t do a restart at intervals, you will have performance problems just as you would if you let your computer run and never rebooted. 
 
If you install programs or do anything where a full boot of Windows is needed, use restart.

do you have another screen reader? if yes, open it and do the same thing you did with NVDA... that's all I can tell you, the rest I leave for other users to talk.

Re: acapela not working on sign on screen with NVDA

 

Hmph, one reason not to get that software then.

To be honest I have often wandered about getting something better than microsoft defender but have not done so.

I have bgt programs, old visual basic programs and stuff microsoft chooses to detect as problematic.

So I have excluded my data drive, and my 2 backups which are used for backups as well as several folders on my hard drive, mostly programs.

So any blind game, or any blindness related anything is excluded because I just don't trust defender that much.

Even with this done I have had to manually exclude and allow certain files through manually.

And for now that works.

Sometimes if I need to keep the backups in for a longer time than normal, I turn off protection completely, do my business then turn it back on again.

The backups generally are not on for more than 10 minutes a day if that sometimes barely a minute or 2.

I have no real trust for antivirus or anti malware software and if I could do without it I probably would.

Thing is I know I need it, but its annoying enough that I have read several hacker articles to make it not work ever again.

Every time its gotten bad I have seriously conciddered making it go away for ever!

I have always managed to get round the issue in a round about way but even so I am glad its foollishness has not spread to my data drive.

I guess if push came to shove I could say no to several older apps and that would be the end of it but when it hits a lot of software who knows.

I have of course reported several apps when I had the last issues but doubt microsoft security ever read those as I never got any responce.

There isn't anything going on anymore but I am to scared to test that theory.

Plus my experience with microsoft has really make me mistrustfull of bits of it.

Hello all,

I'm seeing some trends lately that I feel need addressing. If you disagree, please send emails to nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io, as this topic will be locked.

  • Eloquence: This topic has been discussed to death. Unless you are using a purchased copy of Eloquence, or you obtain it by purchase, it is not legal, and will not be discussed here. NVAccess is on board with this. Please do not post anything re any free Eloquence add-ons, libraries, etc. Anyone repeatedly doing so will be placed on moderated status, and continued violations may result in a ban. Cracked software in general is not permitted on Groups.io, and certainly not here.
  • Recently, an individual posting tutorials to this list received some unkind feedback. Whether feedback is legitimate or not, the individual in question is taking time out of their day to create helpful tutorials for the benefit of us all, and any individual doing that does not deserve the treatment they have received on this list. Moreover, sending tutorials to this list is permitted, as long as content pertains to NVDA. Usually, there is no reason to provide a response to such a post. If future tutorials are sent and are greeted with the kind of reception that this past one received, we may very well inact a policy that any posting of tutorial will immediately be locked.
  • This list aims to be a helpful resource. We have surpassed 1,500 members, and everyone is here to engage in the wider NVDA community. When posting, please reflect whether your post adds value to anything being discussed. There are a couple of individuals who post who don't typically contribute much value to anything they post. Please reflect on what you are posting, and ask yourself what your message adds to a discussion. If it is simply a one-line two-word message, it is likely not necessary. Also, I do believe that each individuals should be responsible for doing a bit of research whenever they post a query, and it is good practice to say what research you have done, or what things you've tried so that we don't cover ground you've already covered. It is also incumbent on each person to try to read through an entire thread before responding, to make sure that they know what has been answered. Moreover, while research is encouraged and requested, if your only response is to tell someone to "Google it" without providing links to references, your post is not welcome, as it simply isn't helpful. It's fine to point someone to resources. It is not okay to simply tell someone to Google it. If everyone Googled things, read the manual in its entirety, and listened to existing tutorials, we would have very little to no traffic, and this list would likely not have a reason for existing.

Thanks everyone.

the version of IBM-tts with the extra languages is on IBM's public ftp software site and you need filezilla to get at it well filezilla is easiest for me anyway and you can get filezilla from ninite.com ...

but if you are learning for the first time you may want more human sounding voices rather than a 20-year-old IBM-tts which is public domain because support for that old sapi4 product has long since ended. I guess you could use IBM-tts if you want to, after all, its free for the taking from IBM's public ftp site. Or you could buy vocalizer because it has Japanese voices also.
