Hello Curtis.  I have the same issue here.  When I load Chrome, NVDA

goes to sleep but works again when I re-load it.  It's a strange issue

because NVDA doesn't hang.  It just stops speaking.  I am sure that with

the current and rapid changes to Browsers, the issues will resolve soon.

Hi, I did have it turned off until I got the programs I know and trust. Now I have it back on!  If I want to install something. I just turn it off.

Sorry for another old message, but, I do want to weigh in on something that was said here.

 

It is probably not a good idea to leave UAC (User Account Control) turned off.

 

If you download the wrong thing, or something infected that your virus-checker doesn’t know about, a program can run in “elevated” mode and make any change to your system.

 

According to Leo Laport, Ransomware is on the rise.

 

If you must turn UAC off, it is better to turn it off only to install a program you know is safe, then, after it installs, turn UAC back on.

 

Of course, it’s still a personal decision.

Since I have UAC shut off, alwyas have, I don't face that problem. Try shutting it off and see if tha tworks then turn it back on if yu really want it on. I do not so I don't.

Aside from the avenues others have suggested, once you start the install, on Windows 10, it will bring up a user account control dialog wanting you to confirm that you allow the program to make changes - that's nothing worrying about NVDA, it does that when you install ANY program.  The problem can be, sometimes it opens that dialog and seemingly puts it behind every other open window.  But, if you don't respond to it within 20 seconds or so, it closes, and the install fails.  Once you've told it to install, if you aren't given that dialog, press either ALT+TAB or ALT+SHIFT+TAB (when not on top, it's usually the last window) to find that UAC dialog.

 

Other than that, I can't think why 2018.2.1 would install and not anything later...

Why would an earlier version of NVDA install and not this version?  It is really not logical to place bloatware or Avast, which is likely not even being used and which I have never heard blocks NVDA from being installed as likely reasons.  It's as though you have drawn up a list of programs you don't like and said, I don't like them so they are likely the problem. 

 

Is it possible that some program is preventing the installation?  Of course, all sorts of things are possible but the way to proceed is to get someone who has proper technical knowledge to look at whatever relevant logs should be looked at and not just categorically blame this or that program or broad meaningless class (bloatware) of program.

If this is the first time you have installed nvda and its a new machine. My
main finger of blame is that it needs a bloatware clean down session if not
a total reinstall.
 Avast is almost like a virus and seems to be on every large store purchased
machine just like Norton used to be, indeed some manufacturers fit it.
 There are also often  free trial versions of all sorts of rubbish
installed.

Re: Remove beeps from list of emails

 

Cearbhall,
I'm not Joseph, but let me answer your question :)
You can find the option to restart NVDA with all add-ons disabled on the exit dialog. I believe you know how to get there, though if you don't, it's NVDA+Q.
Another way of doing it is through the command line but I don't know the exact command.
I'm in a hurry now, but if nobody comes up with such a command, I can look it for you later on.

Hi,

Another possibility: how about restarting with all add-ons turned off? That way we can figure out if this is an add-on problem (I have a hunch that it is one of my add-ons not working right for you, and if so, I’ll do something about it).

For others: this invalidates claims that the email client is to blame, although it might have something to do with it. We won’t find out until we go through troubleshooting steps.

You are right, Quentin did ask me to send a log last night but I am only now getting around to it. As I was looking for the keystroke to launch the log, I accidentally struck NVDA+7 on the PC keyboard and the bleeping stopped! I toggled NVDA+7 again and the bleeping came back again! 

 

NVDA keyboard help tells me that: NVDA+7 Toggles on and off the movement of the navigator object due to focus changes!.

 

Is this the answer to the problem? Can I enable this action without having to have the bleeps?

Re: Remove beeps from list of emails

I just checked.  The name of the add-on is object location tones. 
The description says, "After installing this add-on and restarting NVDA (or when you enable this add-on), as you navigate to different controls, you'll hear tones to indicate where the object is located on screen."  It is evidently seeing items in Outlook like different messages in the list as controls.  I assume from the fact that you don't complain about this in other programs such as Windows Explorer, that this generally doesn't happen.
 
That also explains why when you turned off the object navigator moving as you moved in the application, that no beeps were heard.  the object navigator didn't move and the add-on was therefore unaware that you were moving in the application.

I went into the ad on manager and disabled your beep add-on and the problem has gone away! Now when I toggle NVDA+7 to either on or off there is no more beeping!

 

This is a brutal way to resolve the problem but it is a relief. However, I would like to understand what was happening and why I could not simply toggle the beeps on or off without losing the ability to Trak the cursor.

Are you sure its NVDA that's beeping? Unless you have tested the problem with another screen-reader or no screen-reader, whichever you prefer, you don't know. The easiest way to test would probably be to be in the program, put NVDA to sleep, then try the commands that are causing the beep, then wake NVDA again and resume whatever you want to do.

This doesn't sound like NVDA behavior.

Re: The latest versions of NVDA will not install on my Acer Swift Notebook

Joseph Norton
 

Sorry for another old message, but, I do want to weigh in on something that was said here.

 

It is probably not a good idea to leave UAC (User Account Control) turned off.

 

If you download the wrong thing, or something infected that your virus-checker doesn’t know about, a program can run in “elevated” mode and make any change to your system.

 

According to Leo Laport, Ransomware is on the rise.

 

If you must turn UAC off, it is better to turn it off only to install a program you know is safe, then, after it installs, turn UAC back on.

 

Of course, it’s still a personal decision.

Aside from the avenues others have suggested, once you start the install, on Windows 10, it will bring up a user account control dialog wanting you to confirm that you allow the program to make changes - that's nothing worrying about NVDA, it does that when you install ANY program.  The problem can be, sometimes it opens that dialog and seemingly puts it behind every other open window.  But, if you don't respond to it within 20 seconds or so, it closes, and the install fails.  Once you've told it to install, if you aren't given that dialog, press either ALT+TAB or ALT+SHIFT+TAB (when not on top, it's usually the last window) to find that UAC dialog.

 

Other than that, I can't think why 2018.2.1 would install and not anything later...

Why would an earlier version of NVDA install and not this version?  It is really not logical to place bloatware or Avast, which is likely not even being used and which I have never heard blocks NVDA from being installed as likely reasons.  It's as though you have drawn up a list of programs you don't like and said, I don't like them so they are likely the problem. 

 

Is it possible that some program is preventing the installation?  Of course, all sorts of things are possible but the way to proceed is to get someone who has proper technical knowledge to look at whatever relevant logs should be looked at and not just categorically blame this or that program or broad meaningless class (bloatware) of program.

If this is the first time you have installed nvda and its a new machine. My
main finger of blame is that it needs a bloatware clean down session if not
a total reinstall.
 Avast is almost like a virus and seems to be on every large store purchased
machine just like Norton used to be, indeed some manufacturers fit it.
 There are also often  free trial versions of all sorts of rubbish
installed.

Re: O.T.: A friend needs info on screen readers history for her thesis

No, it's interesting stuff.

And yeah, a lot of these early "synthesised" voices in movies and such were actually not synthesised at all.

Hi:

I'm sorry for coming in on this, as it is probably not relevant anymore, but, thought some might be curious.

The computer Matthew Broderick used was an IMSAI 8080. I believe it was a CP/M machine, in real life.

The technique used for the synthesized voice in WarGames was not a real synth at all. From my DVD copy's commentary, it turns out that John Wood (who played Steven Faulken) read the sentences backwards, then they spliced the words together in the correct order and mechanized the voice, probably with a vocoder or something like that, to make it sound like a computer.

It sounded better than the old Kurzweil reading machine, at least, the one that used a tape drive to load up its programs on power-up. My school for the blind had one of those babies, it broke down every few months. Back then, they were so afraid of user error that you had to be specially trained on the thing, and, my teacher said I would get some kind of certification card that would entitle me to use a Kurzweil in any facility nationwide.

We have come a long way since then.


Again, sorry for coming in so late on this. As you can tell, I'm waaay behind on this list.

Cheers!

Yeah, what was that synth that was used in the old movie War Games?
Was that not really a synth, or was it a Hollywood created sound of a synthesizer?
And what was the model of that computer the kid used?

Hi.

The person earlier in the thread (sorry, I can't remember who it was) linked you to the first page of the forum thread. You didn't read the whole page.
