Re: Microsoft Chromium version of the Edge browser beta download

Hi all,

My husband and I are not huge fans of using beta versions of things. I thought this was in Beta from an earlier message that the subject said that, but now, it doesn't appear to say that. Is this now a release version and if so, where's the best place to get it? Thanks.

I just listened to your tutorial, and I have the same experience when using the Chromium Edge Dev as you do!

It is fast, and is a lot like Chrome!

I wonder how different it will be from the Google Chrome browser, though LOL!

It seems very similar now!

I like the read out loud feature in the Chromium Edge, and I hope they keep that!

I hope as well, that we will be able to export favorites into other browsers instead of just a HTML file to be stored on the computer!

I am excited, and if this becomes a part of Windows 10 down the road, it would be a great alternative to using IE LOL!

Take care, guys!

I listen to a little bit of it or all of it.

browser beta download

Hi guys

\

If any one is interested yesterday i downloaded the new late alpha
version of the new Microsoft Edge chromium based browser Microsoft
is working on.

It is basically a over view of what it is like menus settings and
using it on the web.

Later on i will probably replace it with other things to do with
the browser. maybe more down the track.

or write a tutorial? on the basics

If you want to download it and take it for a test drive you can
grab a copy from
https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/?form=MO12FO&OCID=MO12FO

You can listen to what was recorded so it gives you a basic
overview of what it is like and can be downloaded or listened to
from my drop box account at
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0sqqqo9vwer8s0i/taking%20a%20quick%20look%20at%20microsoft%20edge%20chromium%20based%20browser.MP3?dl=0

I forgot to mention i was using Windows 10 version 1809 and nvda
2019.1

it seems also from off that page it will be coming to windows 7
and 8 and other platforms.

Hi,

I advise waiting until beta version comes out to do a
tutorial on it, and when you do one, don’t forget to
remind people that this is really a repackaged Chromium.

Hi



if any one is interested later on today i can do a audio
recording of nvda been used on it and to show nvda so far
seems to be working nicely with it. Plus also link to it
for others to try it out if they missed the first link.



It will give some a idea of what it looks like etc

Apart from the word dev in the title bar and using the
chrome menu setup for the menus it handles the web pages
nicely it seems as though you can use all of the quick
navigation keys in nvda. A bit more playing around and
going into the settings etc but you would think you are
driving chrome browser.



See if i can find any qwerks in it.

The link that takes you to the nvda audio tutorials page  has a lot of content on it plus pages coming off it for a new nvda user. it is only for a desk top user plus you might find other material blindness related you might be interested in from off the main page called Accessibilitycentral.ent

hi

 

There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.

 

There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.

 

Which version of windows are you running?

 

I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.

 

I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.

 

But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.

 

then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.

 

To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.

 

not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.

 

that one might get posted in the next day or so?

Hi, I just now saw this post.

I was using Windows Defender + the latest version of Malwarebytes, the paid version with real time protection.  I deleted the MB and the problem still exist.  And, I'm still not clear on how to turn off Defender but many list members have stated that they are certain that both Defender and MB do not stop NVDA from downloading.  Maybe, there is a small chance that I have messed up Defender, its menus or not at all friendly to me but, I kind of doubt it.

I would like to find the last version of NVDA so that I can try installing it.  Then, I would try to update to the current version. That wouldn't resolve my problem but it would at least get NVDA on the system.

I wonder why I can still download software from other sources.

I have NVDA on my bedroom laptop and it works great.  But my living room PC is right out of the Twilight Zone!

   is this the first time you have ever installed NVDA or have you had a earlier version.



   the file that wouldive come down would be named nvda 2019.1.exe and when you click on it or try to get it to load it will make a musical sound then come up with a documentation screen. YOu will need to agree to it by pressing the space bar then tab to the first option which will be install to your computer then press the enter key. If it seems to be getting stuck installing it it might be that the UAC screen has come up and nvda can not see it if this is the case use the ALT key + letter Y to say yes to it and it should keep on installing then say it has been installed  with a ok button.



   Or is it just not going any further after you hear the sound?

Re: Microsoft Chromium version of the Edge browser beta download

hi David


I would be surprised if they still keep the app version maybe for mobile phones or those touch devices.

I think it said some thing about it on the page i downloaded it from about that.


I am guessing 2 once people start using this version the number of users will start going up but chrome has the numbers so far.


The app version turned alot of people off the app version but this i guess will bring alot back? I guess it is a wait and see.


I just was not sure how much to record in it but more of a over view than a tutorial.

More so people could see what it was like .

Hi,

I advise waiting until beta version comes out to do a tutorial on it, and when you do one, don’t forget to remind people that this is really a repackaged Chromium.

hi Judy


The link that takes you to the nvda audio tutorials page  has a lot of content on it plus pages coming off it for a new nvda user. it is only for a desk top user plus you might find other material blindness related you might be interested in from off the main page called Accessibilitycentral.ent

maybe book mark the website instead of reference in a email just in case you delete.

hi

 

There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.

 

There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.

 

Which version of windows are you running?

 

I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.

 

I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.

 

But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.

 

then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.

 

To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.

 

not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.

 

that one might get posted in the next day or so?

Re: Code Factory Blues

Margaret Thomas <iluvtoread@...>
 

Gene and All:

I want to change the voice since the Code Factory Eloquence I remember is close to the JAWS Eloquence which is both good and bad. The good part is that it is familiar and the bad is that I'm still at the point with NVDA where I have to switch back to JAWS to get something done quickly or the differences and having to concentrate instead of muscle memory get to me and I need to change. If I leave the computer, I have to do the JAWS read current line to tell which synth I was using.

Also, I understand that by clicking on I agree to the Code Factory license agreement, I gave them the right to do their monthly probe or however often they issue it. I wish they could do it without changing my chosen voice. Yes, registering is free, but my memory is that it is not easy and involves having to dig up codes to plunk down in the appropriate places.

If I load NVDA and do NVDA key plus Control-S, I land on Sapi 5 with a male voice. My memory is that I thought the Microsoft voice I had was female and Sapi 4 which was more understandable for me than eSpeak. Whatever voice I'm on now is also better than eSpeak.

I thought I remembered that there was somewhere in the NVDA menu where one can listen to the installed voices, but I haven't found it yet.

I got NVDA updated to the current version and I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 Home.

I apologize to the list since this is not a good time to try to learn something new, but every time I've run into a bad patch and have had to stop and think I'll resume at a better time, there hasn't been a better one and I've reached the conclusion there isn't going to be.

Thanks to everyone for their patience.

Margaret

First, why do you want to find another voice if all you need to do is reregister the Code Factory Voice, especially if you want Eloquence?  As far as I know, registration is free.  I believe, though you can check, that if you run NVDA once a month with the voice, you will remain registered.  So just running it for a moment with the Eloquence voice should be all you need to do.
As far as changing to the Microsoft voice on your computer is concerned, are you using the SAPI version of Eloquence or the Add-on?  It may affect how you run the Microsoft voice.  I'm not sure I can tell you just how to switch but answering my question may make it easier for you to find out.

Hi, All:
I'm once again trying to learn NVDA after many years as a JAWS user
running 64 bit Windows 7 Home.
One of my problems is that my attempts keep being interrupted by one
thing or another and I have to start virtually all over from scratch.  I
purchased a couple of Code Factory voices  with one being an Eloquence
that sounds reasonably like the Eloquence with JAWS that I'm used to.
Apparently, I upset Code Factory by not loading NVDA frequently enough
for them since the voice switched to something else from Eloquence that
it had been on the last time I used NVDA and I apparently have to
re-register the Code Factory voice again.  This will be the third time
and I'll be in search of another synthesizer since I have a problem
understanding eSpeak or whatever the current one is.  Could someone
please remind me how to find out what the current one is?  During one of
my previous attempts, I found that the SAPI voice for Win 7 was easier
to understand than eSpeak, but can't remember how to switch.  Could some
kind person please provide instructions?
I'll check out voices again when I can get NVDA more understandable, but
does anyone know if there has been anything new other than from Code
Factory in the last several months that works with Win 7?
I seem to be running NVDA 2018.1.1.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Margaret

Re: Microsoft Chromium version of the Edge browser beta download

David Moore
 

Wow, Gene!

I just listened to your tutorial, and I have the same experience when using the Chromium Edge Dev as you do!

It is fast, and is a lot like Chrome!

I wonder how different it will be from the Google Chrome browser, though LOL!

It seems very similar now!

I like the read out loud feature in the Chromium Edge, and I hope they keep that!

I hope as well, that we will be able to export favorites into other browsers instead of just a HTML file to be stored on the computer!

I am excited, and if this becomes a part of Windows 10 down the road, it would be a great alternative to using IE LOL!

Take care, guys!

Hi guys

\

If any one is interested yesterday i downloaded the new late alpha version of the new Microsoft Edge chromium based browser Microsoft is working on.

 

It is basically a over view of what it is like menus settings and using it on the web.

 

Later on i will probably replace it with other things to do with the browser. maybe more down the track.

or write a tutorial? on the basics

 

If you want to download it and take it for a test drive you can grab a copy from https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/?form=MO12FO&OCID=MO12FO

You can listen to what was recorded so it gives you a basic overview of what it is like and can be downloaded or listened to from my drop box account at https://www.dropbox.com/s/0sqqqo9vwer8s0i/taking%20a%20quick%20look%20at%20microsoft%20edge%20chromium%20based%20browser.MP3?dl=0

I forgot to mention i was using Windows 10 version 1809 and nvda 2019.1

 

it seems also from off that page it will be coming to windows 7 and 8 and other platforms.

Thanks so much.

hi

 

There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.

 

There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.

 

Which version of windows are you running?

 

I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.

 

I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.

 

But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.

 

then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.

 

To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.

 

not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.

 

that one might get posted in the next day or so?

Hi,

MB is short for Malwarebytes.

My laptop is running Windows repair right now. Maybe about one hour before I find out if it is fixed.

Maybe, there is a small chance that I have messed up Defender, its menus or not at all friendly to me but, I kind of doubt it.

I would like to find the last version of NVDA so that I can try installing it. Then, I would try to update to the current version. That wouldn't resolve my problem but it would at least get NVDA on the system.

I wonder why I can still download software from other sources.

I have NVDA on my bedroom laptop and it works great. But my living room PC is right out of the Twilight Zone!

is this the first time you have ever installed NVDA or have you had a earlier version.



the file that wouldive come down would be named nvda 2019.1.exe and when you click on it or try to get it to load it will make a musical sound then come up with a documentation screen. YOu will need to agree to it by pressing the space bar then tab to the first option which will be install to your computer then press the enter key. If it seems to be getting stuck installing it it might be that the UAC screen has come up and nvda can not see it if this is the case use the ALT key + letter Y to say yes to it and it should keep on installing then say it has been installed with a ok button.

Sorry accidentally copied the wrong file from the recorder and renamed it before sending which i usually do.

I listen to a little bit of it or all of it.


This is the correct one it can be found at https://www.dropbox.com/s/nf82y6t1tlwqza3/taking%20a%20quick%20glance%20at%20microsoft%20edge%20chromium%20based%20browser.MP3?dl=0



I have also pointed towards it on the nvda road test programs page under browsers and mentioned it is been tested etc.

Hi guys

\

If any one is interested yesterday i downloaded the new late alpha version of the new Microsoft Edge chromium based browser Microsoft is working on.


It is basically a over view of what it is like menus settings and using it on the web.


Later on i will probably replace it with other things to do with the browser. maybe more down the track.

or write a tutorial? on the basics


If you want to download it and take it for a test drive you can grab a copy from https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/?form=MO12FO&OCID=MO12FO

You can listen to what was recorded so it gives you a basic overview of what it is like and can be downloaded or listened to from my drop box account at https://www.dropbox.com/s/0sqqqo9vwer8s0i/taking%20a%20quick%20look%20at%20microsoft%20edge%20chromium%20based%20browser.MP3?dl=0

I forgot to mention i was using Windows 10 version 1809 and nvda 2019.1


it seems also from off that page it will be coming to windows 7 and 8 and other platforms.

Apart from the word dev in the title bar and using the chrome menu setup for the menus it handles the web pages nicely it seems as though you can use all of the quick navigation keys in nvda. A bit more playing around and going into the settings etc but you would think you are driving chrome browser.



See if i can find any qwerks in it.

If you want to download it and take it for a test drive you can grab a copy from https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/?form=MO12FO&OCID=MO12FO

You can listen to what was recorded so it gives you a basic overview of what it is like and can be downloaded or listened to from my drop box account at https://www.dropbox.com/s/0sqqqo9vwer8s0i/taking%20a%20quick%20look%20at%20microsoft%20edge%20chromium%20based%20browser.MP3?dl=0

I forgot to mention i was using Windows 10 version 1809 and nvda 2019.1


it seems also from off that page it will be coming to windows 7 and 8 and other platforms.

Hi Brian


Not yet but will be coming. I grabbed the version for windows 10 and while looking around on another page there is mention for 7 and 8 etc I think also for apple and i can not remember if it said android.


 The link comes off the page i downloaded it from.


so what is the saying stay tuned.


Later on today i will do a recording of going through it to give people a idea of what it is like and post it to the list or website.

So if its a repackaged Chromium, does this in fact mean windows 7 and 8 users can also use it? It would seem a little daft if not.

Hi,

I advise waiting until beta version comes out to do a tutorial on it, and when you do one, don’t forget to remind people that this is really a repackaged Chromium.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi



if any one is interested later on today i can do a audio recording of nvda been used on it and to show nvda so far seems to be working nicely with it. Plus also link to it for others to try it out if they missed the first link.



It will give some a idea of what it looks like etc planning to do some updates tonight to the website so can include or link to the recording in the email.

Hi



Just downloaded it and taking it for a test drive.



Apart from the word dev in the title bar and using the chrome menu setup for the menus it handles the web pages nicely it seems as though you can use all of the quick navigation keys in nvda. A bit more playing around and going into the settings etc but you would think you are driving chrome browser.



See if i can find any qwerks in it.

Re: purchasing Kindle book using NVDA

Hi Brian


I was not really following the thread on which browser was the easiest to use to get the books but have just written up a basic tutorial for kindle for pc for nvda. I could mention the successful steps using the browser for others to duplicate.


I do think it is more there web page but you get different results with different browsers.


By the way your tutorial was posted last night to the nvda tutorials for other programs page under Microsoft word the basic's i think it is called. I still have other material to go up before i let the list know but recent updates are on the main page of the website.

See the results of this archive search:  https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/search?ev=false&q=Kindle+purchase&ct=1

then search on those specifically for the word "purchase."   There are three topics that are relatively recent (mid-2018 and on) that seem to deal directly with this issue (and this very topic comes up first - the others are a number down the page).
