Google Searches

Ralph Boersema
 

Dear Friends,

 

I wonder if someone can tell me what is happening with my Google searches and what I need to change. I use Windows 10 and Firefox. Since last night, whenever I do a Google search and click on a result to go to that web page, I get another Google search page instead and with every follow-up click I get another Google page.

 

Warmly,

Ralph

Agreed,


Later versions of Goldwave have dropped much of the functionality for working with MP3 files in particular.

Re: Selecting text in notepad

Sile
 

Hello Quentin


I did a little more testing and, as you suggested, the problem is when more than 512 characters are selected.


This can only happen in Notepad when word wrap is unchecked as then you can have a whole paragraph appearing as a single line of unwrapped text.  If you check the word wrap option in notepad, the problem goes away.

NVDA reports the number of characters selected when it is over 512 from memory. Are you selecting more than that number of characters, or is it doing it for smaller amounts now?

If it's that you happen to be selecting more than 512 characters, that isn't new, but you could create an issue outlining the reasoning for wanting the ability to have all selected text read as an option. Partly the reason for implementing it was synthesizer lag processing large amounts of text.

If the issue is that you have less than 512 characters selected then that is unintended and I'd be interested in more information about your system and exact steps to reproduce.

Kind regards

I am using windows 10, and the most recent release of NVDA.

Re: NVDA at logon

Luke Davis
 

A question on this topic:

In Older days (Vista and possibly Win 7), if NVDA was not set to run on the logon screen, it would also not read UAC dialogs or applications that ran under elevated privileges.
Unless that was just a fluke of my machines.

Anyway, I just tested under Win 10, and found this no longer to be the case. If I remove NVDA from the logon screen, reboot and log in, it will still read UAC screens, although it does so with the saved configuration that was in effect for the "use on logon and other secure screens", as I can determine from the differing speech rate and volume.

I had thought (but never had it confirmed), that in order to run on the logon and other secure screens, a separate instance of NVDA had to run. If that is the case, then the behavior I experienced in Vista seems reasonable. However if that's the case, how is it running now that I have removed NVDA from the logon screen, presumably disabling the ability for that instance to run with administrative privileges?
Not that I'm complaining, but I am curious.

I ask because this might in some way be related to the original question about NVDA failing to stop running on the logon screen. Then again, i could be totally off base about how this works, and it may not be related in the slightest.

I also wonder if you have tried enabling it to run on the logon screen, rebooting, and then disabling it again.

Re: whats the best version of firefox for using with old systems?

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Well if its AMD, myself I use 45, the big problem nowadays is that many web sites do not like these versions, just in the same way as they do not like IE8. I get a banner saying sorry, update your browser goodbye!


I am not aware if this is merely sites detecting the browser version, or whether if the browser version presented to the site was spoofed if the site might then work. If anyone knows any hacks to make Firefox older versions pretend to be newer, then its probably off topic here, but maybe post a link to a place where they can be found, at the users risk of course.
The thing is there will always be those who just are unable to update their machines either due to poverty or political embargoes etc, so there is always going to be the need for such work arounds like Tor browser for example and its a real shame those making that have messed up accessibility in their recent updates.

Not sure, if you had it set to start at log on, once, then it can be a real

Does anyone know if this is in fact possible?

What I see is that when it has been set to log in with a password prompt in

windows , then the nnvda settings get used but when its fully loaded the

screenreader is not actually running normally it still needs a manual start.

This implies that there is, somewhere in the early start up sequence, a stub

loader that gives rudimentary screenreading before the rest of windows loads

up.

 

 

I'm guessing this may be some throw back to a time when nvda was not

uninstalled completely and has only been seen now due to some change in the

settings in windows starting up and nvda starting up.

Might be worth a look in Microsoft's autorun  tool to see if you can see a

Re: NVDA in pithon three?

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

So I do hope that for quite a while the old and new versions will run at once so people can test them to see where the more esoteric problems lie. For example in add ons like the 3d sound hat I and others use a lot. I do not think any support of apps should be dropped even if they are supposedly very old as there will be those who rely on them and having to switch to a portable old version of nvda to use such software is a retrograde step
I think, generally, blind folk are going to be users of old software much longer than the sighted, even doing work around to make older versions work as had been mentioned elsewhere, since the new versions are seen as poorer access or usability wise.
Just saying.

NVDA is predominantly written in the Python programming language.
Currently, the bulk of the code is compatible with Python 2.7.

Python 3 is a large update to the Python language which is not
entirely backward compatible, so many parts of the NVDA code will need to
be rewritten.

A small example:

In Python 2.7, you can display the word "Hello" with:
print “hello”

In Python 3, the same command is:
print (“hello”)

In that case, it is a matter of adding parenthesis ( ) but in other cases a
command might need to be replaced with something entirely different.

From a user's point of view, you don't need to know or do anything. We
will update NVDA and the plan is to roll out a new version of NVDA with the
updated code which shouldn't be any different for end users. The benefit
for users is that it will open up new commands in Python 3. Also, new
developers are starting to learn Python 3 without knowing Python 2.x so
they won't need to learn an older version of Python in order to contribute.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Selecting text in notepad

There does seem to be times when it says x chars even on one line, but I am not totally sure why. My suspicion is that there may well be hidden characters in the file pushing up the number.
I have been using a notepad replacement lately and this seems to work better, at least in windows 7.

I guess it might be that notepad itself has been altered in Windows 10.

Gene, I think you are right and I wasn't clear in my message.

So, I just did =rand() in Word which produces 1297 characters / 293 words
of text. I then copied it into Notepad.

Using shift+down arrow (as mentioned in the original message) in either
program resulted in NVDA reading the most recently added line in the
selection, even after I go over the 512 char mark. The only way I can get
NVDA to read "XYZ chars" is by selecting more than 512 characters at once -
eg by selecting the whole thing at once with CONTROL+A.

Perhaps the original poster has notepad set to not wrap text and has some
lines which are over 512 characters?

If so, that is not new and the behaviour SHOULD be the same as it has been
in the last few versions of NVDA (it may be this situation hadn't been
encountered before).

So my point was to please let us know if it isn't working as WE believe it
should it, but also if you want the behaviour to be changed, please
articulate how and explain why.

I suspect that what is being discussed is selecting by moving, such as
moving by line, not using the read selected text command or read what is on
the clipboard command but we'll see if that is what is meant.

NVDA reports the number of characters selected when it is over 512 from
memory. Are you selecting more than that number of characters, or is it
doing it for smaller amounts now?

If it's that you happen to be selecting more than 512 characters, that
isn't new, but you could create an issue outlining the reasoning for
wanting the ability to have all selected text read as an option. Partly
the reason for implementing it was synthesizer lag processing large amounts
of text.

If the issue is that you have less than 512 characters selected then that
is unintended and I'd be interested in more information about your system
and exact steps to reproduce.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello


I have noticed that with the latest version of NVDA, when you select text
in notepad using shift-down arrow (or shift-up arrow), sometimes NVDA
announces the text you have selected (as it used to do) but sometimes it
just announces how many characters have been selected.


I am using windows 10, and the most recent release of NVDA.

whats the best version of firefox for using with old systems?

 

hi every one.
i used firefox 52.9 and tor version 7.5.6 which is based on this
version of firefox also.
however, i remembered that brian always mentioned that firefox 52 is
not very fast with windows xp and old processors.
can you please tell me between firefox 45.9 and 48, which one is better?
i am not satisfied with newer versions of firefox and toor, because of
overheating my laptop, unresponsiveness and slowness of nvda and brows
mode not working.
i appreciate any help, God bless you all!

Re: NVDA at logon

Chris
 

In my experience this tends to be that another screen reader, like narrator for example, it's actually starting to login and not actually NVDA, is The issue

NVDA is starting when I have it set not to at logon.

I've looked at NVDA settings as well as in Ease of Access in control panel. It is unchecked so it shouldn't load at startup. It is checked to load after startup. The settings agree.


Another problem is that NVDA is using the default sound card instead of the one designated in NVDA and Windows sound settings.

Re: NVDA in pithon three?

Quentin Christensen
 

NVDA is predominantly written in the Python programming language.  Currently, the bulk of the code is compatible with Python 2.7.

Python 3 is a large update to the Python language which is not entirely backward compatible, so many parts of the NVDA code will need to be rewritten.

A small example:

In Python 2.7, you can display the word "Hello" with:
print “hello”

In Python 3, the same command is:
print (“hello”)

In that case, it is a matter of adding parenthesis ( ) but in other cases a command might need to be replaced with something entirely different.

From a user's point of view, you don't need to know or do anything.  We will update NVDA and the plan is to roll out a new version of NVDA with the updated code which shouldn't be any different for end users.  The benefit for users is that it will open up new commands in Python 3.  Also, new developers are starting to learn Python 3 without knowing Python 2.x so they won't need to learn an older version of Python in order to contribute.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: GoldWave

 

Hi,

What I am really after is the executable name – it should be goldwave.exe, but somehow you’re seeing something else.

Note that I might drop support for GoldWave 5.70 once Python 3 version of NVDA is released (later).

Cheers,

Joseph

Jeff did you get my last post with the answers you asked for?

NVDA+control+f1 = you are currently running GoldWave 5.7

I am running the latest GoldWave, NVDA and GoldWave addon. I get no announcements when any function key is pressed nor when brackets are pressed.
