Hi Rosemarie,

 

Could you please give some more information on exactly what is happening?

 

Firstly, have you restarted the computer after updating NVDA?  While I'd like to say you shouldn't need to, in practice, I've found it does occasionally cause random problems.

 

If you can find a situation which reliably causes issues, could you please record the exact steps so I can try and replicate it.

 

If you are using any add-ons, make sure they are up to date, and also try running NVDA with add-ons disabled to see if that makes a difference:  Press NVDA+q, then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons disabled" and press ENTER to restart NVDA.  Then replicate the steps which crashed NVDA and see if they still do.

 

Finally, if you could send us a copy of your nvda.log, nvda-old.log and crash dump, we can have a look and see what is going on.

 

See https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps for info on the log files and crash dumps and where to get them.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: nvda mouse tracking problem on google chrome browsers on laptops

Good Morning:  You said you were using the nvda key + shift + m.  Is the key for mouse tracking nvda key + m?

I would first try restarting NVDA with NVDA Add-ons disabled to see if it might be an add-on issue.  If that doesn't solve it, I'd suggest uninstalling NVDA and reinstalling the latest version.

Re: The new dev list on groups.io

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

Hi all,


Recently Sourceforge has started producing 404 errors on certain list
pages, plus some people have been reporting that they cannot post to
this list once they have subscribed.

Based on this and other reasons, NV Access has decided that it is best
to move this list to groups.io. Sourceforge is no longer a suitable
platform for such a project as ours.


I have created a new development list on groups.io:

https://nvda-devel.groups.io


Please use the groups.io list for future discussion about NVDA development.


After this post, I shall be making this Sourceforge list read-only, and
investigating how I can transfer previous posts over to groups.io.


I have not yet filled in all public information, but I figure people can
start subscribing before this is complete.


See you all on groups.io.


Mick

===
Well this one but what happens is this. I send to the help address on the page ref above and I get the list of emails as on the page. I send subscribe and I get nothing back. I try a post and I get a bounce not on the list. I go on the web site and it seems to know my email address but wants a password, which I've never had. I gave up after a few tries. I did try to subscribe a different email address and nothing came back. Obviously I was hoping that I might just be being thick. I'l try an unsubscribe email if that does not work then I'll email the owner address.
I see the subscription number has gone up from 14 to something in the 30s in the last day, so some are getting on to it.
This list is useful for reporting issues that may in fact not be worth cluttering up github with, which Is why I monitor it.

Re: Turn off Dropbox notifications

Gene
 

I don't think snooze is what you want.  Snooze probably means no synchronizing.  So any changes made to any account won't be seen in other accounts.  In other words, if someone uploads a file to a shared account, Drop box won't synchronize, so the file won't show in your version of the account.  if you upload a file to your own account, I'm not sure if it will show up in the list.  Not getting notices is entirely different.  it means you aren't notified of changes, such as when someone uploads or removes a file from a shared account.

The instructions may differ if you are using the system tray dialog.  these are for opening preferences when working directly with the system tray.  If you want the other instructions, ask here.

Open the context menu by pressing enter on the Drop Box icon.  Up or down arrow until you find preferences, then press enter. 

You may not hear anything, but preferences should open.  Wait a moment, then start control tabbing.  You will get to notifications after many control tabs.  Tab through and uncheck everything you want to uncheck.  Use the space bar.  Activate o.k. when finished.

Hi,

I am using Windows 10 on a desktop PC and NVDA version 2018.4.
I want to turn off notifications from Dropbox because they interfere with the focus of NVDA. The instructions in Dropbox help are to find the Dropbox icon in the system tray and click on the Gear icon. I cannot find the Gear icon anywhere.

Is there any other way to get to the Dropbox preferences in Windows 10 without sighted help?

Re: Turn off Dropbox notifications

Well, as I said. what you turn off with the switches is the bit that steals the focus, and the notifications still ping, at least in windows 7. Does the latest windows 10 also allow you to hide stuff like 7 does? It should, and if you do hide the icon and turn off both it and it notifications in windows then you are completely protected from them unfortunately then you need to look in the dropbox folders to see what has been happening of course.

I'm not Brian but the command to get to the system tray is Windows key b.

Also, something I didn't mention in my last message is that there is a check box to turn off all notifications temporarily. I don't know what "temporarily" means, but that might be the easiest way to see if turning off notifications will solve the problem.

Go to the tray notification and hit space then cursor up and down the options. One is preferences, and after that you can open that, but you may need to jiggle around a bit to get the various bits to work.
Its strange as on a Windows 10 machine this seems to work fine, but on my windows 7 machines three is an exception error and I have to get a sighted person to navigate the dialogue as it appears blank. I'm convinced this is a problem caused by an uninstall some time ago though.
I've only had the odd alert like do you know you can store your pictures and stuff like that. At least the transparent phantom window seems to have gone away since a number of of had a moan.

No snooze is not the one. Its notifications you want in the main preferences as I recall. I think in Windows 10 the alerts may be more fo us grabbing than in windows 7, as I hear my 3d sound add on pining and reading as new files come in from other people but I can still be reading a document as it happens.

I did try a test post to it, as that should generate a bounce if I'm not subscribed but nothing doing there. Can anyone confirm the group is actually working as I just changed my message rules to allow them through, but I've seen nothing at all. If it is working then over the weekend I'll strip out my message rule and see if I can get the emails from the list before trying again. I guess it could be that one of my other rules is eating the posts, but I'd expect to see them on an imap feed and I don't.

Go to the tray notification and hit space then cursor up and down the options. One is preferences, and after that you can open that, but you may need to jiggle around a bit to get the various bits to work.
Its strange as on a Windows 10 machine this seems to work fine, but on my windows 7 machines three is an exception error and I have to get a sighted person to navigate the dialogue as it appears blank. I'm convinced this is a problem caused by an uninstall some time ago though.
I've only had the odd alert like do you know you can store your pictures and stuff like that. At least the transparent phantom window seems to have gone away since a number of of had a moan.

Subject: [nvda] Turn off Dropbox notifications


Hi,

I am using Windows 10 on a desktop PC and NVDA version 2018.4.
I want to turn off notifications from Dropbox because they interfere with
the focus of NVDA. The instructions in Dropbox help are to find the Dropbox
icon in the system tray and click on the Gear icon. I cannot find the Gear
icon anywhere.

Is there any other way to get to the Dropbox preferences in Windows 10
without sighted help?


All the best,

Cearbhall

The instructions may differ if you are using the system tray dialog.  these are for opening preferences when working directly with the system tray.  If you want the other instructions, ask here.
Open the context menu by pressing enter on the Drop Box icon.  Up or down arrow until you find preferences, then press enter. 
You may not hear anything, but preferences should open.  Wait a moment, then start control tabbing.  You will get to notifications after many control tabs.  Tab through and uncheck everything you want to uncheck.  Use the space bar.  Activate o.k. when finished.

Re: Visual Studio vs Visual Studio Code

Jacob Kruger
 

While I haven't used any form of intellisense code completion for quite a while now, just gave VS code another quick try after opening a .js file, and, NVDA was reading out the suggestions to me quite well, although am not too sure about it's offering with regards to mentioning function parameters, etc., but anyway.


But - sorry - I've been a hard-coder for quite a while now, so, while I use my own code snippets from within edSharp, I haven't really bothered trying out anything like intellisense for quite a while.


For example, while I do also have notepad++ installed on my machines, and, do have some of it's PHP extensions installed, etc., I also rarely use it for real coding/programming.


Only thing I wish I could sort out using is some form of interactive debugging, but, thus far I primarily use my own code snippets to help with that type of thing.


Stay well

VS Code is good if you turn on screen reader support with Alt+F1, but screen readers themselves can’t easily be made to play arbitrary sounds, and change voice parameters to show things like lines with errors, strings verses functions and other nice things yet, so its verbose and not so exact, for me at least. Those who are more experienced coders may have much better luck with things.
