Re: backing up NVDA settings

Gene
 
Edited

If you uncheck that option you won't accidentally save settings except if you revert to factory  settings, for some reason, then shut down NVDA or shut down Windows or the computer spontaneously restarts.  It is still possible to accidentally save settings when you revert to factory defaults.  To avoid saving settings on shutdown, you need to return to the saved configuration with NVDA + CTRL + R before doing something that closes NVDA.

Running latest NVDA on latest Win10 system.  Totally my fault I hit some

unknown key combinations that messed up my NVDA settings.  Then I did

the totally wrong thing and restarted NVDA which caused my messed up

settings to be saved.  Is there a file or folder that can be backed up

to save your NVDA settings?  This would save dummies like from me from

losing the good settings.

Thanks

Don,

See archive message  for the steps to back up the NVDA settings folder.

Re: backing up NVDA settings

 

I'm pretty sure that there is either a file, or folder, that can be copied off somewhere if one so desires, but I'll let someone else fill in that part.

Given the recent conversation about this very behavior, which is that NVDA saves all settings changed upon exit or restart, it's vital that folks know about two things:

1.  The NVDA- + Ctrl + R command that restores your settings to whatever they were when you first fired up NVDA provided you, yourself, didn't manually save them somewhere along the way. if you did save them somewhere along the way, then they will revert to that last save point. If you hit it 3 times in rapid succession it reverts to NVDA factory defaults.

2.  That you can turn the "Save on exit or restart," behavior off in settings, if you so choose, and use NVDA + CTRL + C to save your changes manually instead.  Even if automatic save is on, if you want to save settings you've already changed, because you know that those suit you, this is the command that does this.  All settings changed afterward will remain unsaved until "a saving event" occurs, be that an automatic save on exit or a manual invocation of the NVDA + CTRL + C command.

There is just no way that any given default setting is going to make everyone happy.  You, the generic you, need to understand what the NVDA default behavior is (even were that to change) with regard to how and when settings changes are permanently saved and "behave accordingly" based on what you have elected to keep or change about the settings change saving behavior.

I have no idea what behaviors you are referring to LOL but I do hope you recover soon. Seems like almost everybody I know is getting Covid lately. Take care.

Oh, interesting. Has this been submitted for review for the nvda official site in case someone wants to use it? Also how secure is the AI in terms of describing images just in case anyone needs to know that information.

Seems like it sort of does the same thing windows OCR would do. I used this add on, or a similar one years ago before windows OCR existed.

Hello list,
I'm trying to test something for which I require a build of
nvdaControllerClient32.dll. Can this still be downloaded somewhere?
All the best,

Re: NVDA 2021.3.1 cursor doesn't move in Google product edit fields

Gene
 

Also, I have a number of different versions of NVDA and installers on my machine.  I realized that I hadn't tested with the latest version previously.  It was 2021.1 beta that I tested with previously.  I tested today with both 2021.3.  and 2021.1 beta.  I had the problem with both versions.  that may not matter but perhaps it does.


I just tried testing with an older version and I had the same problem.  I tested with 2020.1beta1.


Since I  don't use Google much nor Edge, I wonder if Google has updated since my first test.  Have those reporting different results checked their version numbers?  If you do so, by going into About, the browser will begin looking for updates and will update if it hasn't.  As far as I know, updating is supposed to be automatic, but it appears to me that, at least at times, Chrome-based browsers may not automatically update and that you need to open the about dialog for them to do so.  Making sure of browser version numbers may help determine why people are reporting different results.


I don't think this matters, but I'm using Windows 7.

However, tabbing away from the field and returning is not the only way to have text be read when you move the cursor.  Opening the menus and closing them does so as well.  It isn't how you leave the field, its that you leave the field that matters.

Try opening this link in the Firefox browser and recognizing the graphics

If it works, then the problem is in the navigator. I just really don't know
how to put the navigator focus on the image.
