Re: NVDA remote server refusing to auto start on debian8, any ideas?

Mobeen Iqbal
 

Hi.


Further to my last email containing the log, I tried running the server in debug mode. The server has so far not exited when running in debug mode, so it would be a little pointless me posting a log here as the problem is not occurring in debug mode. I have added an entry to /etc/rc.local to make it run in debug mode for now in the backround, but I will post this issue on git hub if no one has any further ideas. To replicate, install the latest server on a fully up to date jessie install and try to enable it as a service. When you restart, the server will run for a few minutes. Then it will receive a kill command or similar from debian and exit as shown in the previous log I posted. Now try disabling the service and adding an entry to /etc/rc.local with sudo -u root NVDARemoteServer debug&

this will make the server run next time you reboot. When you reboot, the server stays running as it should. Very strange indeed. Does anyone have a debian system such as a raspberry pi to replicate? So far I have tested on a VPS and pi both running clean installs of debian.


Cheers,


Mo.

Hello,

Why don't you use systemd?
sudo systemctl start NVDARemoteServer.service
The debian package install it, if this is not the case look for the path
to the PID file in /etc/nvdaremote.conf
It should be: /var/run/NVDARemoteServer/NVDARemoteServer.pid

Hop this helps.

Hello Everyone.


I am new here, so please forgive me if this has been covered before. I
am trying to get the NVDA remote server available on git hub running on
my server running debian8 Jessie.


I have done the  following to get version 1.8 installed and running, but
debian still refuses to automatically start the server on boot. I am
executing all commands as root.


git clone https://github.com/jmdaweb/NVDARemoteServer.git


cd NVDARemoteServer/debian8


sudo chmod +x build.sh


sudo ./build.sh


sudo dpkg -i nvda-remote-server_1.8.deb


sudo NVDARemoteServer enable


In the past, the above commands have worked fine on debian7. Running the
latest versions of all packages available for jessie. Anyone have any
ideas on what else I can try?


Cheers,


Mo.




Re: NVDA 2018.3.2 not Sluggish

Rui,

I notice that the key action is more lively now in NVDA 2018.3.2 which I have just downloaded.

I tested it on the file menus that were sluggish this afternoon and all is well now. There is no longer any lag there.
I'll keep an eye on it and report again in a few days.

Looks good though!

All the best,

Cearbhall

Yes. Same sluggishness from 2018.2, so this is a few months old for me at least.

I have to go in and kill the explorer process in task manager, then restart it. This seems to do the trick for a short while. After a few minutes of browsing in Windows Explorer, the problem slowly returns, with each pause becoming longer than the previous pause. I had this sluggishness though in 2018.2, so it's not new for me in 2018.3.

Weather she can read the keynote manuals in there is well who knows.

https://www.coursera.org/lecture/disability-awareness/screen-reader-demonstration-BfDgt

Those are just some of a list off google searches on screen reader history I found in like 2 minutes.

Now, your friend is welcome to email me, but I don't know everything,

I came from the 80s which is probably as far back as it goes though there was some work in the 70s.

There were a lot of readers out.

I would contact the major blind organisations to see about getting a history of screen readers, there will be archives somewhere.

For my part I have sent this message at my local foundation tech list and the dolphin list.

There are still some old timers like myself, not many of us now though but still a few from the 80s.

I know histories started from the 60s the first synths were made in the 30s.

Most screen readers were for dos, I don't know every one of them though.

About 10 years back before all the groups changed round it was easier to contact some of these groups.

If your friend can wade through the oldgames.7z file and are able to read the key*.txt files in the keysoft folder and the hw*.txt files in the mastertouch folder then she should get some idea of some of the keynote synths.

Technically if you payed me some cash, I do have a lot of old manuals about, but I'm not shipping the physical coppies to itily for nothing.

Email me offlist if you need more information.

That fix is for a browser issue. My feeling is this is UIA again which is used far more extensively in 10. IE its getting info from other apps as well as the currently focussed one and this gives a bit of a lag as the things cue up so to speak.

misses the lines that I moved over while it was buffering.


Is this usual? Is there anything that I can check that could be
causing this behaviour? It is very annoying!

In the attached view log I can see how uneven the timings are between
similar keystrokes.

Hi all,



Since installing Version 2018.3.1 on my Windows 10 PC, I find that the
system keeps pausing as if something is buffering.



For instance, when I read a document, If I arrow down line by line, or if I
arrow down a long list of filenames, NVDA pauses and goes silent so that I
think it has stopped and then suddenly carries on with the list as the arrow
continues down the list. If I don't stop arrowing then NVDA comes back at
the point where the cursor is active and so misses the lines that I moved
over while it was buffering.


Is this usual? Is there anything that I can check that could be causing this
behaviour? It is very annoying!

Hi Carlos,


Why did you post this item about list moderators in the  thread concerning the submit button issue?  Sounds like hijacking to me!


On 9/26/2018 12:37 PM, Carlos wrote:

    Is it not the responsibility of those who read these post to decide if they want to click on unfamiliar web links?

    If the list is monitored by moderators is it not their responsibility to make sure that all posts that contain web links be checked before allowing such posts on the list?

    It should be mandatory that all posts on the list which contain web links be thoroughly checked out before being allowed on the list.

    On more than one occasion posts have gotten on this list which should have been checked out by moderators before having ever been allowed on the list!

    There should be some kind of filtering rules set up to make sure that posts that have web links be kept out until the moderators checked them out.

    List moderators need to look at all the changes that are happening all over the internet to monitor content before it ever gets to anyone's browsers!

    And yes! I know that I will be called into the principal's office for having posted this publicly on the list for everyone to read!  However, we all need to ask the moderators to keep the list as uncluttered as possible!

That's largely because of poor training, however.  Not for everything, but for a lot of what people do, you can learn perhaps ten or fifteen commands that are different for a different screen-reader and do a lot of what you could do before.  Most of what people do uses Windows or program commands.  a different screen-reader may use different screen review commands and a different command for read title bar and certain other commands, but a lot of what people do would be the same because a lot of what is done doesn't use screen-reader commands.

Not that I don't think this is a good idea, because it is, but you also have to understand that accessibility will always be, to some extent, a game of catch up.

Web coding keeps changing at blinding speed, and that's not going to stop.  Sometimes it's a matter of the screen readers catching up to it, and particularly when the reason for doing a certain thing a certain way revolves around increased security.

It's really generally helpful to check to see if what doesn't work under one screen reader might work under another if you happen to have a system with two or more screen readers available.  That can help to tease out where the issue might lie.

A friend of mine, her ein Italy, has been assigned a thesis on the history and evolution of screen readers for Windows.

She doesn't seem to find any suitable material.

I often have nothing read when I open a folder in Windows 7. The information you provide may allow a technically interesting discussion about the problem, but as a practical matter, just down and up arrowing once will place you on the first item and it will be spoken. It may be that pressing the space bar will also cause this item to be spoken, I don't recall if I've ever tried it. both actions will select the item as well. Also, first letter navigation or typing more than the first letter of a name will move you to the folder or file and cause it to be read.

I can't comment about whether this problem occurs in Windows 10 because I don't use it. I suspect it does.

If a folder only has one item in it, I don't know what down and up arrowing once does. I have no such folders.

Re: Problem With Submit Button On My Banking Site

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,


I don't know quite what happened.  I had called the bank yesterday and they said they would refer it to their IT department and that the department would call me back.  They never did call me back, but this morning when I tried to log in, the submit button worked. I don't know whether they updated their architecture in the past few days and introduced some sort of coding violation or whatever and then it was brought to their attention and they

fixed it.  I guess I'm all right for now until the next change on the page.


BTW, I am wondering just where the information for this 2 step log-in is kept in the browser.  Whenever I uninstall, reinstall or refresh Firefox, I never lose log-in or password information as such.  I am wondering just where the second step log in information (the graphic and the self chosen captcha word) is stored in Firefox.  Or could it be in the registry?

It seems dear reader that the bbc web site even for people in the UK is
asking you to log in, but my credentials are regected. After some messing
about it seems unable to be satisfied. it took my re registration then asked
me to sign in, and then said it was invalid as it needed a character which
was not a letter. So back we go and try re registering and add a number we
then get invalid characters in your password.
I know its probably not NVDA related unless my computer is sending
something not told to me, but this is merely the radio I player, a service
in the UK which has no age limit or licence requirements and used, until
today be just accessible and palyayable.
Why web sites seem to think they can mess people about I have no idea.
It wants age date of birth post code etc, which is silly for radio catch
up.
This has also stopped the Web Ie utility from working as well as it cannot
download the program list any more.
I do sometimes winder if those who build site think before they do stuff.
I also understand that the new site from my energy supplier is now

Re: Problem with nvda.

 

Hello Nika,
Did you and your friend solve the problem?
Did you try to check the key combination in the input gestures menu?
Also, just saying, I tried capslock+down arrow to see what happens and NVDA behaved the same way. This should be the cause of the problem.
When we say NVDA key we are saying insert or capslock and it depends on what configuration your friend uses.
Maybe you already know it but as I wrote before, just saying.
