Ron, thank you for the recommendation and the caution. I'm using a third party service that I've had for a while now when it was offering unlimited nmtp for $6 per month. Cox also got rid of UseNet on their end last I knew.

Hi Quirk,


I used to use X News.  It was very basic and it looked like a Windows Explorer type interface.  Unfortunately Time Warner/Roadrunner/now of days Spectrum banned the downloading and access to binaries years ago.  Be forewarned and check to see if your provider allows binary downloads.

Re: accessible antivirus

Felix G.
 

Hi!
Generally speaking, if I were currently looking for a good antimalware solution, I would look for the following:
- Dual engine approach. Two engines see more than one, and more than two is overkill.
- Surfing protection based on a list of known malware-distributing sites.
- Good behavior blocking technology that spots programs trying to open backdoors, modify the registry in unexpected ways etc.
- Protection against a wide variety of types of malware, including but not limited to viruses, worms, trojans, backdoors, adware and spyware.
So much for the list of positive characteristics. Here's what would put me off a given solution:
- Email scanning. This makes no sense as any malicious file will need to be saved to disk prior to being opened. So, classic file-based scanning on write will get them all anyway if done correctly.
- Add-ons for specific browsers, email applications, office suites etc. I'd like to be protected in general on a conceptual system level, not in a per-program way which needs updating every time I decide to install something new.
The program I suggested earlier in this thread would seem to fit the exact criteria I outlined here, therefore that's what I'm using and what I'll continue to use until any of these parameters change for the worse, at which point I'll re-evaluate.
Kind regards and hope this helps,
Felix

I accept that there might be better antivirus programs than Defender, but what are they?

 

My experience with Defender on my Windows 2010 machines have been positive, up to now.

Re: accessible antivirus

Roger Stewart
 

I've been using Defender for quite a while now with no problems at all.  There was a couple weeks where I was getting some kind of false message about Defender dealing with malicious software but when checking, I found nothing it had removed.  These messages have gone away and all is good.  I've also heard that Defender will be getting even better in the next version of Win 10.

Re: problem is java acces brich

both 32 and 64 is needed to work unless you are using a purely 32 bit windows
I found the windows enable disable function for java access bridge is hit and miss.
Most of the times you have to manually edit the accessibility.properties file and uncomment out the line about loading the java access in addition to manually copping the j a b files to your windows system.

I think there is a problem with the access bridge in general. I use Open Office and the latest version of JAWS but when I use the spreadsheet it freezes. JAWS support had me install the latest Java and turn the access bridge on and it worked fine until I rebooted my Pc. so they say I need to contact the access team at Java.

There is a command to run it in Windows 10 but someone can discuss that.  I don't use Windows 10 and the command may have changed.  But in all versions of Windows, this method will work:

Press and hold the Windows key.  While doing so type the letter r.  Then after waiting a moment, type narrator and press enter.  Narrator will run.

There is more than one way to make a portable copy of NVDA.  Here is one way.  I am assuming that NVDA is already installed on your machine. 

 

Major new steps start on new lines.

 

First, create a folder in which you want to install NVDA.

Then, while NVDA is running, open the NvDA menu with NVDA key n.

Down arrow to tools.

Press enter.  You are now in a submenu. 

Down arrow to create portable copy and press enter.

You are now in a dialog.

Tab to the browse button and press enter.

If you don't know how to work with the dialog you are now in, ask here.

Open the folder you have created to place NVDA in.

Then continue to make the portable copy.  Look around the dialog and if you have questions, ask here.

Once yu have made the portable copy, copy the folder you created onto the thumb drive.

Or cut it to the thumb drive, whichever you wish.

To run NVDA from the thumb drive, connect the thumb drive to the machine you want to run it on.  Have Narrator running before you connect the thumb drive.  If you don't know how to run Narrator, ask here.

Once Narrator is running, find the folder that contains NVDA on the thumb drive.  Open the folder.

Look for NVDA.exe and press enter.  You will probably just here nvda but not exe. 

NVDA will run.  I don't know if you will be asked anything first such as if you want to run the file.  I don't think so. 

Then close Narrator.  It will cause no problem to have NVDA and Narrator running simultaneously so close Narrator and continue running NVDA.

Greetings,

 

I am new to the list, and somewhat familiar with NVDA and love it.  Question:  Is there a way to use NVDA from a thumbdrive, for instance, would I be able to use it on whatever computer I am assigned to, as long as I bring my thumb drive with me?  How does that work?

 

I have been a Jaws user for almost 20 years, hard to believe, but hope NVDA has the portability I would need.  Thanks for any instructions and advice.

Hi

 

I accept that there might be better antivirus programs than Defender, but what are they?

 

My experience with Defender on my Windows 2010 machines have been positive, up to now.

Computer advisors I trust say that Defender isn't as good as other good programs.  There is a debate about whether and to what extent this matters because, evidently, Microsoft says that Defender will protect against malware that users are likely to encounter.  I expect that if you look for information in places like PC World, Kim Komando, Life Hacker, and other reputable advisors, that many of them will say that it's better to use something else.

Re: Piriform Recuva,v1.53.1087 recovering folders using nvda?

 

Well I had a few drives that failed all at once.
I was able to recover all the file names but not the contents.
While the majority of files could be transfered, as well as some stuff locally stored, the fact was that most of the data was gone.
Even after recovering from another less failing but still dammaged drive, I still lost a couple unimportant folders.
It was better than what I lost origionally but still.

On 17/03/2017 9:08 p.m., Brian's Mail list account wrote:
Yes all recover is doing is changing bits in the file allocation
table. You probably cannot make the folder the same as s before due to

locations are pointed to by an entry in that new folder. Obviously until
its been recovered every write you do including nothing at all runs the
risk of corrupting the files so its best to just restore them to
anywhere then fiddle with them later. Another word of warning is that if
they are dlls or other system files they lose their registration even if
you eventually put them back where they were.

I doubt this is an NVDA problem. Do you have another screen-reader such

Even after all these years, Chrome still is not fully accessible though,

Hello,
I'd like to have some hints or just a confirmation that NVDA has the
following problem:
open google chrome.
- go into address bar and type:
chrome://extensions/

You have the extensions page. Go to the bottom of the page and you
should find a link called "short keys", I don't know in english, in
italian is Scorciatoie da tastiera, anyway it is a page that allow you
to assigng a keyboard shortcut to activate an extension.
Just to make an example, if you are using hoxx vpn extension, you can
decide to activate it with a ctrl-shift-h, instead of going into
toolbar, than search extensions, right lick, etc etc.
You can define hotkeys for your extensions!

The little problem is that NVDA is not able to read that page.
Absolutely nothing.
Can you give a try and tell me if you have the same problem?

If yes, I will open a ticket about that.

Be forewarned and check to see if your provider allows binary downloads.

Heh, interestingly enough, wikipedia has a page specifically for nntp
readers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Usenet_newsreaders

I don't know which ones (if any) are accessible, but that might be a
good starting point.

I've never used nntp on windows, only on linux/unix, and I've used
programs like trn and nn, and (in a pinch pine). There is a windows
version of pine (now called alpine) which works fairly well, and it can
handle nntp servers, so that may be an option if you absolutely can't
find anything else. I've not delved into the usenet groups for many
many years, but I sure do miss them, perhaps this will give me the
insentive to get involved with them again. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

ok, I suppose it is not a NVDA problem, but someone should open a

Nobody can read absolutely nothing.

And if Chromevox is not able to read Chrome content... ok that
ChromeVox is not able to read the menu bar of Chrome, that is quite
silly, but it is not a NVDA issue.
Anyway I think I will open a ticket on NVDA community, then NVDA

I'd like to have some hints or just a confirmation that NVDA has the
following problem:
open google chrome.
- go into address bar and type:
chrome://extensions/

You have the extensions page. Go to the bottom of the page and you
should find a link called "short keys", I don't know in english, in
italian is Scorciatoie da tastiera, anyway it is a page that allow you
to assigng a keyboard shortcut to activate an extension.
Just to make an example, if you are using hoxx vpn extension, you can
decide to activate it with a ctrl-shift-h, instead of going into
toolbar, than search extensions, right lick, etc etc.
You can define hotkeys for your extensions!

The little problem is that NVDA is not able to read that page.
Absolutely nothing.
Can you give a try and tell me if you have the same problem?

If yes, I will open a ticket about that.

Re: Master Branch Versions of NVDA

Each of the snaps has its own update, ie you will not be able to go back to the normal version automatically you will have to download it and install it over the master or next branch manually.
I notice also that when you attempt to put anything like master over next or stable release over a newer master it warns it might not be a good idea.

I believe on the snap pages there are links to change logs. However there are whats news in snaps with basic info.

Subject: [nvda] Master Branch Versions of NVDA


Hi All,



I am now using the latest Master Versions of NVDA.



A few questions Please.



1. When the next release comes out will the update feature move me to
the released version or only update me with in the Master next version?
2. Is there a change doc so we can see when an update happens in the
Master branch what has changed?

Thanks so much,



Sam

or subscribe to a 3rd party news service like easynews that will let you download binaries.

Hi Quirk,


I used to use X News.  It was very basic and it looked like a Windows Explorer type interface.  Unfortunately Time Warner/Roadrunner/now of days Spectrum banned the downloading and access to binaries years ago.  Be forewarned and check to see if your provider allows binary downloads.
