Re: Question about NVDA profiles and layouts

Andre Fisher
 

It is indeed possible with configuration profiles. Let's say you, by default, are set to the laptop layout, but want to use the desktop layout in a certain app. Just create a configuration profile while in the application you want to use the desktop layout in, then press Control+NVDA+P. Press Alt+N for the new option, then choose the option for the current application. Then, configure the layout and other settings as needed. Save the settings with Control+NVDA+C to be on the safe side. And, that's it.

Well I don't know of any accessible client. Last time I used it, quite a while back, I've used a basic client developed by brazilian folks for another program called DOSVOX. I doubt anyone on this list will know about this program, by the way.

        Hi all,
 
I'm just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for an irc client 
that works with NVDA? I was using chatzilla for the longest time, and 
liked how I could review the output window as well.
 
 
I tried mirc, however found that reviewing output with object nav 
(assuming there's not a more affective way to do it) often didn't 
contain all the text, and missed the last few lines.
 
Thanks for any help,

Damn. I’m sure when Cristobal sent that first message, he had no idea what it would spawn. Sure, he could have included a description; I agree with that, since I’m not one of the people directly addressed in his message. Those were people who already use (and love) this particular piece of software. Maybe that number is small; maybe not; I really have no idea, but his oversight was a small one regardless. I agree with Brian; it’s really not a big deal to click on the link and at least see what it’s all about, if you happen to be interested enough to even bother doing anything other than hitting that delete button in your e-mail client.

Travis,

           Quietman7, a security expert who is an active contributor on Bleeping Computer, has written extensively on what you (any you) need to do to develop safe interaction habits with cyberspace.  The following four are, in my opinion, must-reads:

·         Users Themselves Are The Most Substantial Weakness In The Security Chain  (just that single message)

·         What you must understand regarding computer security  (also just this single message)

·         Best Practices for Safe Computing

·         Reflections on Antivirus/Antimalware Testing & Comparisons

You as an individual have to develop a personal "sniff test" regarding what is safe to click or download or not.  The kinds of come-ons you mention should immediately raise red flags and you're just asking for problems if you frequent sites that traffic in illegal software, videos, etc.

Eventually, your 16-year-old will learn if he doesn't want to keep having to go through the major gyrations he's imposing upon himself secondary to foolish behavior.  I'd actually expect that a 16-year-old has not yet developed that particular skill set, particularly given the general penchant for risk-taking among young men.
