Re: NVDA and FireFox Update

So assuming the person who asked the question was using the defaults, third party advertising on the site had been hacked and showed a milicious update that wasn't an update at all.  But we'll have to know more before drawing any  conclusion. 
 
I'm not trying to worry the person but if that is the case, he should thoroughly check or have his machine checked for malware.
 
The site Dictionary.com is a reputable site but third party hacked advertising is becoming increasingly common.  It's so common that it was written about as a serious threat in the New York Times two or three months ago.  and there may be a hacked advertisement on that site now.
 
Which is why people should use an ad blocker or for even better protection, block scripts.  But an ad blocker should protect you from most such threats.

If you leave Firefox at the default update setting, the way you'll know it's updating from a screenreader perspective is on a restart. As the program opens, it'll say updating, then restart. I have it turned off so I can update when I choose.

Well probably not, firefox has something called mozilla update service,
and most likely it just got it, it can do this without a user having to
do anything you wouldn't notice, one day you would be online, you close
the brouser you open it and bang either you get a message its updating
or maybe its all running by itself and its going.

Re: *Sending Again* Regarding Google Docs with NVDA

Chris Nova
 

Hi,
What web browser were you using? Did you have accessibility mode
enabled in Google Docs?
Did you turn off the virtual cursor/browse mode?
Docs works well with NVDA, JAWS, ChromeVox etc.

Hi Noah,


If you live in the U.S. then the school system is required to provide those docs in a form that is accessible to you.  I can't speak for outside the U.S. though. 



I have personally had problems using docs under Google Docs with NVDA so am skeptical about using them.  Others have had some success I believe but not sure how much.


I hope this helps.

Remote Add-on issue

Jonathan Milam
 

Hi All,

I have created shortcuts to the computers that I control remotely via
the remote add-on. For some reason, now when I click on any of them,
I get a message that the application cannot be found. Any ideas on
how this can be resolved? I have uninstalled-reinstalled NVDA and the
add-on without success. Which application actually launches these
shortcuts? They start with nvdaremote colon slash slash.

Thanks,

Re: Fake FireFox Update

Gene
 

Any update won't come from a site.  It will come from within the program itself.  Short of getting something like a script blocker, there may be nothing you can do.  I would suggest keeping up with security news by subscribing to something like the Komando newsletter, which keeps readers informed about various scams and malicious activities such as what you are describing.  I'm not saying you should use the Komando newsletter, I'm saying that that is one example.

Subject: [nvda] Fake FireFox Update

Hello NVDA Group,

Earlier today I was at the dictionary.com website when my browsing was
interrupted with receiving what I thought was a Mozilla Firefox
update. I became suspicious as the hours went by because when I would
get on the link for my browser in the programs menu, it identified it
as just "firefox."

Also, I had to tab forward each time I wanted to activate a Google
search. I discovered from some reading that fake updates occur
occasionally at any given website. Mozilla says they will not just
barge in an update one's browser. I did a system restore which
hopefully corrected the problem.
Beware, is all I am saying. If anyone knows how to stop these
instantly, please share!

Renaming will cause the same problem because the actual file can't be found.

The link below is a very much quietened error noise with soft start and

stop and a batch file to copy it into the right place on an installed copy

of nvda.

Its in a zip file.

Just download it and extract the two files to a place you want them to go.

Then when you get an update and the loud error comes back, run the batch

file and relax till the next update.

I've only automated what can be a bit of a faff about if you are trying to

do it in a hurry.

Make sure both files are in the same folder though. Also if you want you

can replace the error.wav with any wav file you like even silence, though

this is not actually recommended as the whole point of error noises is to

alert you of erm an error!

The link below is a very much quietened error noise with soft start and

stop and a batch file to copy it into the right place on an installed copy

of nvda.

Its in a zip file.

Just download it and extract the two files to a place you want them to go.

Then when you get an update and the loud error comes back, run the batch

file and relax till the next update.

I've only automated what can be a bit of a faff about if you are trying to

do it in a hurry.

Make sure both files are in the same folder though. Also if you want you

can replace the error.wav with any wav file you like even silence, though

this is not actually recommended as the whole point of error noises is to

alert you of erm an error!

Hope this helps with the hearing.

And now some gentle sounds of waves lapping against a shore.... no not

really!

Re: *Sending Again* Regarding Google Docs with NVDA

 

It would help if you describe the problems you are having.

Also, can you not just download the various docs to local copies and open using Office?  I've done that in the past.

Re: got the movie to play

Excellent.

 

I think you’ll like it.

 

I still use winamp for all my music and am pretty happy, but VLC has been my video player since 2011 and I’ll never look back. It can do a lot of things that Winamp was never designed to do without plugins and will play just about any format I throw at it, though having the Klite codec pack probably helps.

Hi, everyone,

 

I finally was able to get the movie to play with VLC media player. It'll take some time getting used to it but I think I'll be able to work with it.

 

Thank you all for your help.

I didn't say it would fall over.  You might not be so dismissive in your tone.  I told you what happened when I tried it.  I didn't say a word about falling over or not being able to be used or anything of the sort.  There was some problem that occurred, such as perhaps an error message.  If that has changed, fine.  But your tone is dismissive and almost disparaging.

Actually I was only proving the point that the wave sounds are not necessary and nvda wont fall over without them , like some claim here

Well that is fine but its not ideal. It only has sounds to indicate certain

things, if you take them away then they are all gone!

Well that’s odd, no error.wav file, no problem here

In fact I removed the waves folder entirely, and guess what, nvda still

works without any sound how about that?

 

How do you explain that one?

See a recent message I sent. If you just delete the file, there will be some

sort of problem when NVDA wants to play the file and it isn't there.

Renaming will cause the same problem because the actual file can't be found.

Either alter the file that is already there or put a different one in with

the same name.

Or you could just delete or rename the error.wav file in your program

files\nvda\wave folder

I guess it depends how much messing around you want to do 😃

I didn't say it wouldn't work.  I don't remember what happened when NVDA wanted to play something.  I don't remember if I got a message about no file being found or what.  This was a number of years ago.  If this has changed in newer versions, that's fine.
