backing up NVDA settings

Don H
 

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

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.

Locating nvdaControllerClient32.dll

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,
Felix

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
there.
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.

Re: NVDA announcing shortcut keys

Yesterday, I began a new issue on Github on this topic.  As a result of discussion, I proposed two other solutions to the problem than my initial one. 


You can see the discussion and comment here:

Yes, what you say is correct about programs in general but a screen-reader is somewhat different than typical programs.  In a screen-reader, people often want to change settings temporarily and not have them accidentally  saved permanently.  You may want to change the speech rate, perhaps you are reading something you want to concentrate on more and slow the screen-reader, perhaps you want to change punctuation temporarily, or change what is or isn't spoken on a certain web page.  Perhaps you want to change the voice.  I imagine people would tend to change one setting usually but I also suspect there are times when people might want to change two or three, but you don't want any of these changes to be permanent.  If your computer spontaneously reboots, the changed settings will be permanently saved.  While this doesn't happen often, it does happen.  Because you may have set them a long time ago, you may not recall the numerical values of the settings and you may find it annoying to reset them.  You may be doing something after making one or more changes and decide to switch screen-readers.  Without thinking about reverting before shutdown, you close NVDA.  The old settings have been lost and the new ones saved. 


And in the case of those learning NVDA I believe it gives students more confidence in

experimenting with NVDA settings if they know they won't accidentally be saved.  They can change as many settings as they want and none of them will be permanently saved, unless intentionally.


I believe that programs like Openbook and Kurzweil are in this category of program as well.

Gene,

I suggest you look at how the Settings under Windows 10 & 11, Microsoft Office, most web browsers, and the list goes on and on these days work.  The era of having to hit even so much as a Save key to finalize your choices has, quite often, disappeared.  Even a Cancel button has become rarer.  The settings take effect, immediately, and stay as you set them until or unless you set them back.  It has become the most common convention.

That matters.  People come to expect this sort of behavior ecosystem wide as it has come to predominate.

It's not even a matter of personal preference, really, so much as a matter of establishing a consistent convention and sticking with it.  There are programs, and they are relatively few and NVDA is one of them, that allow you to actually control when/if settings changes are saved.  It gives you the control if you want to set an exception to what has become common convention.

But in all cases, whether I necessarily like what the common convention is, personally, I recognize the value in following it.  Knowing what to expect, in most cases, has a great value even if I so happen to hate whatever that thing is.  At least I know and I know that if it's possible for me to change it then it is up to me to make that change.  It makes it a conscious deviation from the common convention.

NVDA is adhering to modern conventions, and should continue to do so.

Hi,

I wish for your speedy recovery.
the best thing to do apart from the regular medical support during
COVID and post-COVID is to keep your confidence and think positively.

hopefully all having covid and post-covid symptoms will recover completely.

sincerely,

She and just about everyone has now lost their job because they got covid.
They have to work till they get replacements.
But with our isolation centres the way they are right now with space
issues and the fact if you are sick and all the restrictions she is
stuck out there, with no cash, and because of no job no visa either.
Technically the company who hired the people is supposed to get them
home but who knows if they actually will honor this.
She has her own issues with people to, but was in a bad patch last
year having been robbed while away and losing most everything.
No work, means no cash though and no cash means no anything.
Family are trying to send cash but money laundering and such well its a
problem.
Touch wood I have not got sick though being an alergy sufferer there
is always the case I may have covid daily because I can sneeze any
time without medication and even with.
So yeah, its going about on a continuous level.
So all we can do is get the best protection we can and hold on to our
hats for dear life.
