Nothing wrong with having audio ducking. It is pretty useful to have.

Re: startup sound in windows 10

Arlene
 

No kidding. It's been that way since Vista or I know for a fact windows 7. XP you used to be able to change your start up sounds. Although I like the start up sound for 7 and ten. But it's a shame you can't set the sound to your liking.

One of the most annoying things about 10 is that it seems it won't let you put your own sound in without a considerable amount of hacking about, it just denies access to it. Seems a bit odd as a sound would hardly be of any harm to windows, unless you replaced it with something rude, but I think you can still alter pictures so why not the sound.

I suppose one could just put in a small sound player in the start up sequence to play it, but it would need to be a player which can have a hidden mode of course.
I used to use something called Playany, but it seems not to work from Windows 7 onwards.

Hello All,

           While response from the WebVisum developers to invitation requests isn't anything close to immediate, it's not not-existent or weeks-late, either.

Re: web visum digally signed extension

Brian, it's also interesting that the updated version isn't mentioned on the Webvisum site itself, which still lists the older outdated version as the most recent.
I'm personally using the one I linked to in the add-ons store, and am having no issues with it. I agree that the experimental tag could probably be removed from that one now.

Travis,

           It's good to see that the original developers have updated the add-on with digital signature, but it's also weird that it does not turn up in an add-ons search from within Firefox itself.  I went to the link you supplied, and there's no doubt that it is official and legitimate, but it's really strange that you can't find this via an add-ons search.  Perhaps that's because the add-on is marked "experimental."  I'd say after all this time they could remove that classification, but there's been so little "action" on this add-on or the WebVisum website where one has to register for an account to use the add-on this is not surprising.

Re: NVDA not reading UACC dialogs

Hi.
You have to put the dialog bar of UACC in 67%. Is the option that someone recomends me and now my NVDA eads all UACC dialogs. In addition, if you don't want, always you can use Alt+Y for Yes and Alt+N for no.

Hi,


Is it just me or is there a problem with NVDA reading the UACC dialogs?
I have noticed that when they popup I just have to remember that alt+y is yes and alt+n is no. It doesn't tell me what or why something is making changes.


This is just happening when I am making changes but it sure would be nice if NVDA would read the dialogs.


Any thoughts?

Brian, seems they used a multiline textarea form field for something like production notes, but, FF didn't go into focus mode automatically on my side - whether or not I arrowed over/into the textarea, or used the F keystroke to jump to it, and then used , to jump past it, but, if you tabbed into it, then it would switch into focus/forms mode.

Re: Strange effect on a web page

 

Just as a side note, whenever I start getting "just plain weird" issues with a web browser my first course of action is to clear the browser cache.  Cache corruption is not uncommon and can lead to a wide variety of peculiar behaviors.

Here's the support page that documents the steps to do that in Firefox, including the option to clear cache whenever you exit Firefox:  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-firefox-cache?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=How+to+clear+the+cache

Re: Chrome and NVDA and setting it as the default browser

 

Actually, now that I think of it, I believe I also experienced the issue of setting default browser using the conventional method within the browser not "sticking", too.  Certain things become blurry long after the fact.  You absolutely can set your default browser in Settings, System, Default Apps Pane, Web browser item.

Gene is correct with regard to Edge, Cortana, and the Bing Search Engine.   There was a time when Cortana passed any web queries through to your chosen default browser and your browser processed it with whatever you had set as its default search engine.  That was changed sometime during the reign of the 1511 build of Windows 10.  The way I phrase it is that Edge, Cortana, and Bing have been placed in a plural marriage from which none can be divorced.  If you use Cortana to do a web search it will come up using Edge and the Bing search engine.   I'm really surprised there wasn't a much larger outcry about this and that the decision has actually stuck.  I thought for certain that it would have to be reversed, now I doubt it ever will be.

Re: Chrome and NVDA and setting it as the default browser

There are certain uses for which you can't stop Edge from being used, and I believe this is a recent development.  As I understand it, Windows is now more restrictive of where you can use a different browser such as to see search results when using Curtana.

Yes but that seems not to be permanent, at least not on my machine, you
actually need to go to the control panel of 10 and set it there.
 Maybe I've changed some other parameter that disables other software
setting themselves as default?
 I get the same thing using Firefox, and asI say curtana or as my friend
calls her  sultana, still uses Edge, personally, I'd shove edge over the

Once you've got Chrome open and focus is on that window:

* Hit ALT
* Hit Down Arrow
* Hit S (the first three steps will cause Chrome settings to open in its own
tab)
* Search for "Make Google Chrome the default browser", which should take you

* Activate the button, close the tab
