Re: crashes in the last few betas

Hi Dan,

Can you give us the recipe or two to "cook these crashes" please a.k.a. exact steps to reproduce if possible?

P.S. Poetry is fun, but be considerate when dealing with app crashes.

Cheers,

Joseph


crashes in the last few betas

Dan Beaver
 

I have the latest beta running under Windows 10.0.19043.1645.  I am experiencing numerous crashes.  Are these going to be fixed in the next stable release?  If not then I think I may go back to the previous past stable release because I only installed this beta to see if it would work better with a program I recently obtained.  It doesn't so it isn't needed.


No need to lecture me on the fact that I can go back anyway, I am just trying to find out if these are being fixed or not.

Larry, as I explained to you yesterday, and Gene explained in more detail, this is just wrong.

You press the header number, or H, not both.

H is the general header command. It takes you to whatever the next header is.

The number commands, one through six, take you to the next header at that specific level.

If you use both, you will jump two headers.

You didn't knowledge either of my messages yesterday on this header topic (before you changed the subject line, which is very annoying, please don't do that), so I don't know if you read either of them, or the one Gene sent. Hopefully you read this one.

I doubt they are more convenient than Winamp.  I continue to use Winamp because it is so convenient.  I use other players for specific cases where they do something better or do something Winamp doesn't do, but for general use, I doubt anything is more convbenient and I don't know if another player is as convenient.

Do you happen to have a link handy for that utility?

 

I downloaded a utility of Carlos's a while ago, but don't now know just where i managed to put it, much less where I got it.

 

Believe me, if I can find alternative ways of accomplishing similar results and aren't more trouble than they are worth, I'll use them.

 

 Maybe I'll send off my suggestions to the developer of the addon when I find the time, it certainly wouldn't hurt. I just can't understand how anybody who has made use of Winamp and a screen reader wouldn't have ask about these gaps in access by now, but maybe I'll just have to be the first to do so.

I am not aware of any way in Winamp or using the NVDA or JAWS Winamp add-ons to adjust how quickly you can move through a file using the left and right arrows.  But given the time marker setting ability and the very convenient jump by time feature in Winamp, I have never missed such a feature.  You, having used it, might miss having it.

I am not saying not to use Window-eyes when you use Winamp.  I'm saying that if you ask about things you think are missing in NVDA, you may find out about ways to do things you don't know.

If an interested coder would take a look at that particular app, they could create quite a useful addon for NVDA.

 

And no, the bookmark menu just doesn't quite cut it for me. And I don't like having to fast forward and rewind in five second intervals. There are times when at least fifteen minute jumps are really the ticket.

 

Anyway, these are the conveniences I've become quite used too over the past twenty years or so, therefore, they are quite hard to give up.

Lol. Use foo bar or vlc for yore listening. I like it in loo of win amp any time. Plus you can config the keys to fit what you want to do.

A slight correction on your findings. You do not do 2 h at all or even h 2. just do 2 in browse mode and you will be taken to the heading level 2 on that page and shift 2 to go back.

I could really do with some help, NVDA is no longer reading out any content in my browsers, except Internet explorer and keeps saying chrome legacy window

Khalid Anwar
 

At the moment, NVDA is just not really reading out any information in Microsoft edge or Google Chrome, Though Internet explorer still works, I’ve tried loading narrator and while there is a bit of a delay in the speech, it still works. Occasionally though, NVDA will announce chrome legacy window for no apparent reason.
I’ve tried running the fixing tool and I’m running the latest version 2021.3.5 and of course I restarted the computer and NVDA itself multiple times both with and without the add-ons but nothing seems to work.

Also, although the program is not intended for use as a portable program, since I now know that I can use it to play streams, more or less like using book marks, I wanted to see if I could just place the folder on another machine, copied from the machine it is already on.

I did so.  When I ran the utility, I got an error message about a script.  I answered yes to the message about running the script.  The utility works perfectly on the new machine after you say yes each time you run it.  The streams I have placed in the program run so I can back up the program and save all the streams to be played in that way.

What happens if you move up and down the tree view when holding control?  That may speed up the announcement of where you are a great deal because nothing is being selected as long as you hold control, if standard Windows conventions are followed.

When I arrow up/down in the tree view, the tree view item is reported 2-3 seconds after the key press; that's very long to browse a tree view!
 
Is there some parameters in NVDA or in Visual Studio that can be modified to enhance this experience?

When navigating through the interface, I am experimenting some lags.
 
A more specific and impacting example is the one of the solution explorer. The solution explorer is reachable with ctrl+alt+L and contains a tree view containing all the files of the project and their structured content.
When I arrow up/down in the tree view, the tree view item is reported 2-3 seconds after the key press; that's very long to browse a tree view!
 
Is there some parameters in NVDA or in Visual Studio that can be modified to enhance this experience?
 
In NVDA, I have already tried to check and uncheck "Enable selective registration for UI Automation events and property changes" in the advanced settings panel, but no change.
 
Note: Narrator is much faster even if reporting the tree item is not totally immediate and is done after a fraction of a second though.
 
Thanks.
Cheers,
 
Cyrille

I don't know if it is still generally available.  I'll send a Dropbox link for it.

I downloaded a utility of Carlos's a while ago, but don't now know just where i managed to put it, much less where I got it.


Believe me, if I can find alternative ways of accomplishing similar results and aren't more trouble than they are worth, I'll use them.


 Maybe I'll send off my suggestions to the developer of the addon when I find the time, it certainly wouldn't hurt. I just can't understand how anybody who has made use of Winamp and a screen reader wouldn't have ask about these gaps in access by now, but maybe I'll just have to be the first to do so.

I'm not sure what you are discussing about jumping to different audio streams.  It may be that the Window-eyes add-on allows you to do so more quickly and conveniently, but Winamp has book marks. 

I am not aware of any way in Winamp or using the NVDA or JAWS Winamp add-ons to adjust how quickly you can move through a file using the left and right arrows.  But given the time marker setting ability and the very convenient jump by time feature in Winamp, I have never missed such a feature.  You, having used it, might miss having it.

I am not saying not to use Window-eyes when you use Winamp.  I'm saying that if you ask about things you think are missing in NVDA, you may find out about ways to do things you don't know.

With WE, you type the designated header number before the H, where with JFW and NVDA, you type the H before the designated number.


To confuse things just a little, with NVDA, and JFW, if you type the 2 before the letter H, you are actually able to skip over headers, or in the case of BARD and Bookshare, titles.


Anyway, my bad.


Now before anybody takes the opportunity to launch into me about still making use of WE, if only someone would take it upon themselves to right an equally convenient and sophisticated addon for Winamp, I would just give it up altogether, at this point, most likely for NVDA. But until someone does, I'll just have to keep using WE whenever I want to do any serious music listening, which in my case is quite often <smile>.
