Folks,



The easiest way to use the Amazon site is to use the Amazon access site

<https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ref=mw_access>
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ref=mw_access



There is a search field about two lines down from the top of the page. It
searches all of the amazon site. If you hit an item that says it is not
available for purchase on the amazon access site, just open the link in
another tab and proceed.



I have heard one report that the purchase buttons could not be activated
in
Internet Explorer 11, but they can be activated in Firefox.

Subject: [nvda] Yahoo Mail Password: answering my oun question


Hi, all,

I will answer my own question.

The problem with Yahoo Mail it is simply tricky to use, to not say its inaccessible.

To change the password it's necessary to navigate to the "help" menu and then find the "My account" option.

The difficulty is that the menu buttons must be activated withe ENTER and the menu items MUST be accessed with TAB key. Arrows don't work, "k" don't work.

To worse things a little more, to activate the menu item, it's necessary to be in edit mode, not in browse mode. So, it's necessary to use NVDA+SPACE. I suggest to do this right before arriving at the ""Help" menu.

It's a mess, an accessibility nightmare.

When you know the file hasn't been corrupted, copy it somewhere else. Then copy it back to it's current location when it becomes corrupted. I suppose you could create a batch file so you could automate this but it appears that the real inconvenience is having to create all the settings again manually. That doesn't solve the problem of why the file becomes corrupted or how to prevent it but it would save a lot of time configuring NVDA repeatedly.

Also, I doubt this would help and you wouldn't be able to change any settings or add any but you could try making the ini file a read only file. I doubt that will stop it from becoming corrupted but it may be worth trying.

Joseph.

The latest occurrence of this just happened last night and its like the
third or fourth time this has happened.
I'm using the anniversary update with nvda.
Occasionally nvda will just stop talking to me and when i restart either the
computer or nvda, i'm told the configuration file is corrupted.
I then have to go back and set every single one of my preferences again.
Any idea why, and how do i back up my configuration file so i do not need to
do this each time.

The Windows firewall is adequate, though you may want to run something else. Ransomware is spread in the ways malware is generally spread. A firewall will not stop you from getting it. the question is, what did you do to get it in the first place and the other point is, you should have all files you don't want to loose backed up and stored somewhere not connected to your computer such as on an external drive not attached to your computer except when in use.

I was just pointing out that the way I used it has now had to change. This is the one thing that irks me about sites. They cannot leave them alone, and whereas sighted users see the new layout, trying to guess this when you are a blind user is not that easy. I'll have a go later with s, but most other sites use landmarks and headings which generally seem to be fr easier to use.

Hi everyone,

 

One of the strengths of NVDA is superb support for object navigation. However, there were requests from people who wanted a more intuitive way to do this, including using just the arrow keys to navigate between objects, and since early this year, a way for NVDA to have something similar to scan mode in Narrator (Windows 10 version 1607). The wait is over: introducing ObjPad, an add-on that introduces more intuitive object navigation facility and basic implementation of scan mode feature, along with possibilities such as one key command to move focus to the current navigator object and more planned for the future.

 

The add-on (for now, a development snapshot) can be found at:

Re: a very question about anti spyware programs and very critical issue for me!

V Stuart Foote
 

Nasrin,


Was sorry to hear that you got clobbered by Cerber3 ransom ware. Suspect you picked it up via Its usual delivery as an exploit from a linked page from email message or when following a web page link.


The NoScript plugin for Firefox is pretty good for preventing delivery of the Exploit of the malware to your computer--just checked and it seems fully accessible in NVDA

Here is the link to the project page:

https://noscript.net

There is an install button on upper left edge, can be reached via keyboard, labeled:  "Install NoScript, it's Free and Open Source" -- it is a link to a Firefox .oxt extension and will place a program button on the main toolbar next to the Home button. The default mode should function well without interfering too much with your web browsing--but you will find occassion when you need to allow "exceptions" to permit pages/content you know to be OK to run. That can become a bit annoying, but if you "allow" your usual sites and applications the annoyance goes away pretty quickly.


Unfortunately on computers already infected and with encrypted files they can not be recovered--the encryption can not be reliably reversed--and I would not trust the paying a ransom to deliver a viable decryption string. So a restore from a backup is the only safe option, in other words make and keep backups current.


For protection targeted against "ransomware" encryption there are several specific solutions--but I have not checked any of them for Accessibility with NVDA

Malwarebytes has an ongoing beta of its Anti-Ransomware project -- here:  https://forums.malwarebytes.org/topic/177751-introducing-malwarebytes-anti-ransomware-beta

HitMan Pro has its Alert active anti-Exploit product -- http://www.surfright.nl/en/products

TrendMicro's  Maximum security block encryption -- http://www.trendmicro.com/us/home/products/software/maximum-security/index.html


Good luck!


Stuart

Re: a very question about anti spyware programs and very critical issue for me!

Gene
 

I doubt there is any way to keep anything from running automatically except to not allow scripts to run.  An ad blocker offers protection.  I don't know enough about the subject to know how much, but it may be quite a bit.  Nor do I have the technical knowledge to know if a firewall will stop the ransomeware from contacting its server to begin encryption.  In addition, I read about a new ransomware that doesn't need to contact the server to begin encryption.  If you want to use no Script (spelling) to block scripts that is one option.  If you want to turn off scripts in Firefox, that is another.  But you will still want to use scripts on some sites.  Some forms can't be submitted without scripts being allowed.  Most audio can't be streamed without scripts being allowed.  And there are many other sites that won't work fully without scripts. 
 
Many sites may be useable for how you want to use them with scripts off but if your use of the Internet is at all typical, many won't.  The most simple thing to do might be to have two copies of Firefox on your machine, a portable version and an installed version or two separate portable versions.  You can have scripts not allowed in one copy and scripts allowed in the other.  Then you can switch from copy to copy without changing settings repeatedly.

The add-on (for now, a development snapshot) can be found at:

http://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/objPad.en.html

 

Feedback is appreciated.

Cheers,

Joseph


XLP no speech

Maurice Bell <itma-7@...>
 

Hello all,


Thanks for your suggestions, but I have had no internet for 3 days, so
have unable to advise you I now have speech.


For some reason the new install, after removing NVDA, installed with no
speech checked.


While trying Matt's suggestion, discovered that Super Nova will read the
NVDA menu when loaded, so foundout what the problem was.


My only problem now is, that I only have the Microsoft voice for Narrator.


Thanks, Maurice.

Ransomware is spread in the ways malware is generally spread. A firewall
will not stop you from getting it. the question is, what did you do to get
it in the first place and the other point is, you should have all files you
don't want to loose backed up and stored somewhere not connected to your
computer such as on an external drive not attached to your computer except
when in use.

hello every one.
two weeks ago, my computer files were incrypted and now, i lost most
of my valuable files and informations.
i have now many readme files that require me to buy the decrypter
software and my personal product key.

this ransomware is called cerber3.
it changed the name and extensions of my files, to the strange letter
and numbers with cerber3 extention.
could you please guide me which firewall can i use?

i need a free program, accessible with nvda, using less system
resources, without reducing the speed of my system and reading of
nvda, capability of hiding my Ip and informations from hackers, saving
my data from unwanted changes, incryptions etc.

i realy need your help and i am very worried for my data.
i use windows xp, but i want a software that supports all versions of
windows including 32 and 64 bit versions!
thanks extremely for your help and God bless you all.

I have not had the need to use it in a while, but I'm sure before one could use the header button to get to the main info and zip past all the search annd departments etc, but now it seems there is no convenient header to go to, one ends up tabbing or a mixture of l k and h to get to where you want, occasionally getting stuck in a weird edit field you need to tab out of.
They have obviously changed someething as my muscle memory way does not work any more.

Anyone?
Brian

Ho did this software arrive on your system. Was it one of those pop up download things that sometimes happen on normal web sites and a bit of a distraction makes you click the install button.
I've never had one of these myself since having ad block software on my browsers, but now you have it, unless somebody knows how to hack it, I'm sorry to say, you are probably stuck with it .
Best plan I can say is to go back to the last backup before this happened and then try to get the files from the original sources that you are missing.
As a matter of interest is this a known encryption program which is legitimate or just somebody's ransom ware.
I suspect the latter, but if not and they are approachable most companies will let you have a one shot reverser utility to back out.

Other than that most of the things you need to protect yourself are between your ears and not in software, I have found, sometimes to my own cost.
