Re: Strange behaviour of Google Chrome

I just thought I'd throw in my $0.02 here for what it's worth. I don't
notice any performance issues if I don't clear everything for several
months, but I do it once in a while just because. I've been
considering doing that with Firefox here recently, but it would be the
first time it's been completely cleared in the two years I've had it,
though only four months of that has been as a primary browser.

i set my firefox to cleans all data including history when closing.

i also dont use bookmark.

i believe that its one of the advantages of firefox that my firefox is

always like the time when i installed it for the first time.

i believe that saving data may cause slowness of firefox or any browser.

And, if you're someone like me, who has never found the "Beep Speech" mode to be of any use, you can install the add-on:

NoBeepsSpeechMode

which removes that option and causes NVDA+S to toggle strictly between speech on and speech off.

There is also the option of using NVDA Sleep Mode, the toggle for which is NVDA+Shift+S (desktop keyboard layout) or Z (laptop).  But once you do this NVDA is off, completely off, without being shut down.  You must toggle again to bring it back.

Re: Are there any extensions for LibreOffice?

Gianluigi Coppelletti
 

Hi,

I'm afraid that there aren't any, but I really hope that the accessibility of LibreOffice with NVDA will be improved in the future, because more and more blind users are choosing this suite as this is a very good free alternative to MS-Office. Unfortunately this doesn't depend on the NVDA's developpers only.

Ciao.

Gigi

Re: Strange behaviour of Google Chrome

Gene
 

You are stating as beliefs, things that are factually incorrect except in specific cases. The generalizations are not true as generalizations. And they are never true regarding book marks. Book marks don't have anything to do with how fast a page loads. And if you don't have book marks, you are actually taking longer to load pages some of the time. I can book mark not only the home page of a site if I want, but any page on the site I want. I often book mark a page that contains specific information or material I may want to refer to again or read all of if I have read part of it and want to return. I can use history for the same thing, but book marks may be faster and more convenient. Also, if I keep book marks, since they don't slow page loading down, if I do clear history at some point because it may be slowing page loading, the book marks are still present.
I really don't feel like typing every address of every page I want to go to every time I want to open that page, which I have previously visited.

If history becomes too large and/or if the cache becomes too large, that may slow page loading. But they have to become large. I don't delete the cache nor history except if I notice slowness of performance and one or both are large. I delete whatever I think may be large enough to impact performance, not both at once without considering when I deleted history or the cache last.

Deleting the cache before it grows too large may actually cause some pages to load a little more slowly, though I think the difference would be slight on a reasonably fast broad band connection.

Re: Strange behaviour of Google Chrome

I don't know what you read or where, but that isn't true.
I run it using 4GB of RAM, using Windows 7 and either it, or Google based browsers, and they run fine. I also have plenty of RAM to run what else I run. It may be that there are problems involving RAM. I don't know. There may be a memory leak, for example so using Google for long periods may cause it to use increasing amounts of RAM or maybe having a lot of tabs opened may use a lot of RAM, I don't know. But any browser requiring 8GB of RAM wouldn't be widely used..

In addition, it is generally stated that computers of today, running Windows 10 should have 8GB of RAM as the minimum, though you can use less.
\
I just checked. When I have Chrome opened and a web page loaded in one tab, my memory use, when few other programs are running is somewhere around 58 percent. If I close Chrome, it goes down to about 52 percent.

I honestly do not know.  I hope that someone else may.

That being said, there are many Chromium-based web browsers to choose from besides Google Chrome if that's the one you like and are used to.  Brave, Edge, and Vivaldi are but three, and there are others.  Consider giving one of the alternatives a go to see if it does not misbehave in the way that Chrome is.

I don't know, why, but Google Chrome sometimes behave very strange on My
computer. For example, I am working on Google Chrome and sometimes there
is something, like later echo. Not often, but sometimes. I don't know why.

For example, I am writing on Google chrome and sometimes It says later
key, which I pressed, not at same time. I don't know, how to explain It
better, because I am not English native speaker.

Can I fix this problem?

Thank You.

Re: Question about creating application-specific configuration profiles with certain add-ons disabled

 

Hi,

You can’t really turn off an add-on while using an app specific profile.

Cheers,

Joseph

Louise,

             I cannot find a tutorial that delves into this directly, but the NVDA User Manual States:  A configuration profile contains only those settings which are changed while the profile is being edited. Most settings can be changed in configuration profiles except for those in the General category of the NVDA Settings dialog, which apply to the entirety of NVDA.

              Since Add-Ons manager is not a part of the General Settings category, I'd certainly just give it a try as far as creating a specific profile for the application, then disabling an add-on, saving the change, then hopping out of that application and back in again.  Try it with a single add-on as your "proof of concept" and if it does work then tweak the remainder.

               As an aside, many Add-Ons do give you the ability to actually tweak their keyboard shortcuts, so if it's one you'd rather have all the time you could check to see if you can tweak the shortcut that conflicts with your application instead.

Question about creating application-specific configuration profiles with certain add-ons disabled

Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  Is it possible to create application-specific configuration profiles with certain add-ons disabled?  I have a couple of add-ons that have keystrokes that overwrite the application-specific keystrokes of some programs I use.
 
Thanks,
 
Louise

Oh, oops? My fault, maybe. I could have misread the instructions as well. I've been a bit sick over the past few days.

I'll try that tomorrow and see what happens.

hi Sarah

I stopped it saying "Formula Bar" by checking "Edit Directly in Cells".

Apologies if I confused anyone.
