Re: How to enable Java Access Bridge?

Chris Mullins
 

Hi
There is a spurious problem with JAB in that the installer sometimes doesn't copy a particular dll to the correct folder. As you are probably aware, you should install 32 and 64 bit Java versions on a 64-bit system and ensure the following dll's are in the specified folders to ensure JAB will work properly with NVDA and Java Control Center.

WindowsAccessBridge-32.dll should reside in Windows\SysWow64 folder WindowsAccessBridge-64.dll should reside in Windows\System32 folder

It tends to be the 32 bit dll that goes missing, which is what NVDA uses but it's best to check both. If it's not in the correct place, copy it from Program Files x86\Java\Bin to the folder specified above, similarly on the 64 bit side if that dll is missing.

Cheers
Chris

I activated Java Access Bridge:
1. I pressed Windows+U and select "Use computer without screen"; 2. E checked "enable java access bridge" checkbox; 3. I pressed NVDA+F1 to view log and Java Access Bridge.

Accessible ERP Systems?

 

Hello,
I am wondering if anyone knows of any Enterprise resource planning Systems that are usable with NVDA?
I have looked at around 10 and only found one that was usable and it was not that functional.
I would like to know what other people have found?
Thanks,


Re: How to enable Java Access Bridge?

 

Well have you restarted nvda?
even if java is installed and the access bridge is activated that doesn't mean its active for the current session, quit out of nvda or even better reboot then it will stay active.
Every time you update you will loose access till you restart your reader of choice then its detected.

I had a laptop with a bios that didn't update and a fan that didn't work
and packed it away and it was dead.
Due to heat in summer especially with the humidity in new zealand though
other countries and places can get hotter, I have had to put a coolant
fan desk under my computer at all times.
In fact during summer especially if my laptop is on my lap which it can
be from time to time I have got vary burned legs from just putting it
there so yeah.
A friend who has his system in an well ventelated atic room still says
that even with his fans full up on his gaming wrig he needs to stick 1
or 2 fans into his case just to cool it down.
He probably needs several heat pumps or something on the other hand the
solar panels are in his rough so yeah who knows.
Things can get quite hot.
For myself I have a room with 2 computers, 1 workstation and a small

It does have 2 sides to open windows but even then well.

In all seriousness though, It's not only the note that I've seen that

have gotten hot enough that you could barely touch the glass on the face

Then again, I've also seen people forget to set their laptops to sleep

However a expert says as we get better and faster phones they become
more like our computer units, and more powerfull and the energy needs
to go somewhere, they don't have fans, fans would drain battery faster
but the fact is even with flash chips we will need to get our phones
cool somehow.
And since our phones live in cases, etc and we havn't really had the
need to cool them as such that will only become more an issue as it

I read this to joseph.
1. yeah someone gave his public key which is basically giving his
userid and password.
The user got his nvda crashed and lost data in ram, which for some
stupid reason he hadn't even save.
It was all mindless fun and just users mucking round.
Sadly the same user has gone over the fact that the main dev criss is
not responding to feadback and not hiding the public key, etc, etc.
He then decided to post on a public forum complaining about nv remote
in general not being secure.
This same user has done this drama before.
He got what he deserved is all I am saying.

You shouldn't give out your security info.



On 11/10/2016 8:40 a.m., Joseph Lee wrote:
Dear NVDA community:



I give you permission to pass out the following to other community
members:



Dear users of NVDA Remote Support add-on:



On the morning of October 10, 2016, a group of users connected via
nvdaremote.com experienced a general client crash, with the root
of the
problem being a series of events that led to NVDA crashing with long
strings
passed to a particular synthesizer. The event unfolded as follows:



In the evening of October 9, 2016, someone posted a message to a
public
forum which included giving out his remote client password, with an
"invitation" for anyone to connect to his computer. Within moments,
several
people connected to the poster's computer, but then the host
disconnected. A
few moments later, the server admin came in using the published
password,
changed some configurations and crashed NVDA by letting clients read
long
strings and making their keyboards unusable. An audio recording was
published that provides some live evidence, with people posting on
social
media advising others to stop using this, labeling this as
"unsecure".



In light of this incident, as a community add-ons representative,
I'd like
to request that add-on users follow these guidelines:



1. Never give out NVDA remote session password publicly.

2. The Remote host must provide the password and this should be
done
privately.

3. The Remote client must tell host what he or she is going to
do so
the host can be aware of what's going on.

4. The host should try to inform clients that he or she is
disconnecting so clients can disconnect properly.



Also, as an add-on developer, I'd like to propose the following
action plan
in the future:



1. Please examine evidence you can find before coming to the
conclusion
that things are insecure.

2. Developers should provide responses as soon as possible when
evidence becomes available.



The add-on can be found in our NVDA Community Add-ons website.
Although
there is some things about this add-on that have contributed to this
incident, the ultimate root cause has to do with irresponsible user
actions.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

It happens because people want to believe it. I also think many of us feel there is a conspiracy about, and we don't want to lose access to something we had before. It has been my experience that life often takes several steps back in access for us and its mostly to do with the bottom line and bean counters. However the Iphone thing is solved by a tiny adaptor made by Belkin if you want to charge and run phones together on the 7. I did chuckle at the demo of dunking it in a bucket of water though.
However back on topic now.

The user got his nvda crashed and lost data in ram, which for some stupid reason he hadn't even save.
It was all mindless fun and just users mucking round.
Sadly the same user has gone over the fact that the main dev criss is not responding to feadback and not hiding the public key, etc, etc.
He then decided to post on a public forum complaining about nv remote in general not being secure.
This same user has done this drama before.
He got what he deserved is all I am saying.

You shouldn't give out your security info.

Dear users of NVDA Remote Support add-on:



On the morning of October 10, 2016, a group of users connected via
nvdaremote.com experienced a general client crash, with the root of the
problem being a series of events that led to NVDA crashing with long strings
passed to a particular synthesizer. The event unfolded as follows:



In the evening of October 9, 2016, someone posted a message to a public
forum which included giving out his remote client password, with an
"invitation" for anyone to connect to his computer. Within moments, several
people connected to the poster's computer, but then the host disconnected. A
few moments later, the server admin came in using the published password,
changed some configurations and crashed NVDA by letting clients read long
strings and making their keyboards unusable. An audio recording was
published that provides some live evidence, with people posting on social
media advising others to stop using this, labeling this as "unsecure".



In light of this incident, as a community add-ons representative, I'd like
to request that add-on users follow these guidelines:



1. Never give out NVDA remote session password publicly.

2. The Remote host must provide the password and this should be done
privately.

3. The Remote client must tell host what he or she is going to do so
the host can be aware of what's going on.

4. The host should try to inform clients that he or she is
disconnecting so clients can disconnect properly.



Also, as an add-on developer, I'd like to propose the following action plan
in the future:



1. Please examine evidence you can find before coming to the conclusion
that things are insecure.

2. Developers should provide responses as soon as possible when
evidence becomes available.



The add-on can be found in our NVDA Community Add-ons website. Although
there is some things about this add-on that have contributed to this
incident, the ultimate root cause has to do with irresponsible user actions.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph
