I really have to say thanks to nvda.

In the past I have used jaws before my pc starts, but I notice that at sign in nvda is far more accessible.

JJaws for me is now beginning to go “out of the window.

Many thanks to nvda.

Again,
When connecting your android phone you might get something on your phone such as charging or power transfer.
This matters as you should insure your phone is set to file transfer.

Hi JM Casey:
Maybe you can help me better.
Actually, I am trying to root my Android phone, and I am expected to type in some commands in to the CMD window. I have to have my phone connected to my computer.
I do al these, and I type the appropriate commands, and I get the messages I spelt out in my earlier mail.
That is the issue. I've tried doing this several times.

Hello again,
Your phone should be recognised as a drive.
However the progrmams on your phone aren't exe files.
So I don't know what you want to look at on your phone.
A better way might go in windows to this pc, cursor down to your phone drive and press enter.
You will notice several directories on your phone.
So, give us more of an idear of what you exactly want to achieve.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Help Wanted With The Command Prompt On Windows

dennis huckle
 

The command prompt should put in to your user directory.
However to go to your route directory press c:\
That should put you where you need to be.
Just from there type notepad.
That should put you to the notepad app.
Sometimes you may need to change options in cmd.
Press alt and space then tab to properties then tab to use tty console or something like that.
Check that box and exit cmd by typing exit and enter.
The next time you run cmd things should be ok.
But as mentioned by another person on list you can only get to exe files by typing the name of the program as mentioned above.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

What exactly are you typing in, or pasting?
That is the message you get when the command is invalid or there is no executable in the set path with that name. So the error explains exactly what is going on. But you say it happens every time so I assume you are trying different things?

What less than stellar reviews?  Edge is considered by many computer observers as a better browser than Google and what I’ve read about it is persuasive.

Hello NVDA Group,

First, thanks for your responses to my query.
Second, I downloaded NVDA (current version) and the third party
website was able to be utilized as before.
I suppose there are several of us who prefer using one browser, and or
one screen reader, that works well when necessary most or all the
time.

If MS Edge and other MS products receive less than stellar reviews by
tech or anti-virus sites, is not one putting their device at risk by
relying on only adequate computer ware?

NVDA went up significantly in my likeability as a result of this
experience between it, Narrator and the third party website.
I don't want nor need a bunch of extra 'stuff' on my computer..
Thanks again!

As an example, I currently run NVDA, JAWS, and have used narrator in crash situations. As for browsers, I have Chrome, Firefox, and Brave. Of course Edge is here, but I don't use it.

Be prepared for some bumps in the NVDA road - Major Change is coming . . . #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

That major change is at the level of the NVDA code itself, and while that is not something that should concern you directly, the possible side effects, particularly in reference to add-ons, is likely to.

The add-on application program interface (API) is to be updated to version 2021.1. This means add-ons not declaring support for NVDA 2021.1 in their manifests will be marked as incompatible. It doesn't matter if they're really incompatible or not, because this is the mechanism that is used to check compatibility, and invariably, due to a combination of factors, the add-on manifests sometimes don't get updated in perfect synchrony with the NVDA code.  Plenty of add-ons that are now and will be perfectly compatible will end up being flagged as incompatible, and that will stop once the necessary tweak is made to their manifests.

All of that detail shouldn't concern you, either, but I wanted folks to be aware of why this is likely to happen.  And it's most likely to occur when the beta versions of the next version of NVDA begin to show up.

If it occurs, please do not panic, it is most likely to get worked out once the incompatibility is flagged. If one of your favorite add-ons continues to be flagged as incompatible for a couple of days after you first see that, then do your add-on developer a favor and let them know.  Many will be fixed before even a couple of days passes, which is why I don't suggest that everyone flood the developer's inbox immediately.

The purpose of this message is to make clear that the sky is well and truly not falling, though the possibility of it seeming like it is exists. There is almost certain to be a bump or two, at a minimum.  Stay calm and carry on.

I think the subject line pretty says it all. Is someone aware of an accessible screen mirroring software with NVDA to mirror the screen of the iPhone?

Does the software (if it exists) supports having voiceover sound come from the PC speakers?

If a particular website and NVDA were compatible on a Windows Seven
computer, is it highly likely the same will be the case if used on a
Windows 10 computer with Chrome rather than FireFox as the default
browser?

Can I cloud be used with windows? I use gmail. Just curious.
Absolutely. I'm not sure how "I use gmail" relates to the question, but you can download and install iCloud for Windows. It will not interfere with Gmail.
In fact, it doesn't really include anything related to the mail component except maybe contacts.

Then you can use iCloud Drive (cloud file storage synched with your iDevices), and various other iCloud features through a more or less accessible interface.
I use that to move files to and from my iPhone all the time.
I only use the iCloud Drive feature, so can only speak directly to that.

Works fine with NVDA.

You can use iCloud mail via IMAP as Brian pointed out. I used to have my @me.com address accessed from Linux that way, but haven't done it in a while.

no different than using a Gmail account in the iOS mail app.
