Also, you said, if you put yourself at risk, not others.  If a machine becomes infected, it may cause problems for others, not just you.  It may be part of a botnet and take part in denial of service attacks, shutting down web sites.  It may be used by malware to mail spam, thus exposing people to phishing and other kinds of fraud.  The malware may try to spread itself to other machines on your network.

The whole point of having NVDA on a thumb drive is to run it on other machines where it isn't installed.  Why would you want to run it on your own machine from a thumb drive in the first place?  I don't know anything about disabling this feature but it sounds to me as though if you do, you open yourself up to malicious software if you use a thumb drive from someone else.  I see no reason to take risks just to make running something easier. 
 
And you can run it very easily on your own machine without lowering security.  Create a short cut to the exe file on the thumb drive.  Then assign a short cut command such as control alt d or control alt a or whatever such combination you like.  That is so fast and convenient that there isn't any remotely justifiable reason to needlessly lower security for convenience.

Hi Keryn.  Here is a sample of an Autorun.inf file.

Copy the below code:

ShellExecute=NVDA.exe

Save the autorun.inf file onto the root of your USB drive.

Re: auto run file

Hi


Just tried it with another voice off the USB stick and it is loading off the USB stick and not the computer.


It also looks as though now you do not have to put in the backslash like before for example e:\nvda.exe as shown.


I was also using a windows 10 computer running the latest version of nvda 2019.1 rc1


I will note this on the website. Could any one else confirm it works and not the installer version but the USB version.


It will not work on the windows log on screen with a portable version I can not try it that way as mine all boot into windows. But would be wondering if it was used with the run dialogue box entering in the drive letterthen nvda.exe like shown would it start up?

Re: auto run file

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi again


You could also try the following this is more if you only have the nvda files on the USB stick but not in the nvda directory.


Press the Windows key + letter R then type in the following e:nvda.exe then press the enter key


If it is the e: drive one then nvda will start off the USB stick.


Some times what can happen is the USB stick might be another letter so you might have to try some others.


So in the run dialogue if the previous one did not work it might be f:nvda.exe then press the enter key to start it up.


Some times it brings up the contents of the USB stick and all the times it just strts NVDA.


I just tried it and the default voice on the stick is the Windows 10 one but on the computer is e speak.


Just to make sure i will change the voice on the usb stick and redo.

Re: auto run file

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


If i remember right the auto play function was turned off back in Windows 7 or was it 8?


If you want stuff to autoplay you will need to turn it on in your machine. It will work on a CD but do not think it runs any more with a usb stick.


You have to start NVDA another way. I do have some examples on my nvda audio turtorials page on different ways of starting nvda. if you are going to another machine learn the 2 shortcuts to turn it on then start nvda from off the usb stick that way. Alot easier for new people.


When you get to the web page jump down to the section for usb stick or CD and or autoplay and to turn it on.


it can be found on the following page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

There are a few different ways.


Hope it helps.

Re: auto run file

 

For all practical intents and purposes, no.

Autorun is a function of Windows, and it has been turned off for ages now because it became apparent that it posed a significant security threat not too terribly long in to its use.

You could probably do it on your own machine, and I wouldn't advise doing so, but most machines are going to have Autorun disabled so it doesn't matter what you have set up as far as an autorun script on your thumb drive.

Re: Does NVDA support for Bong VarioPro80 braille display?

Adriani Botez
 

Hello,

 

Baum created a driver for Vario pro devices, that is vario pro braille displays 80 and 64, taso modules etc. Unfortunately the driver is being not further developed because Baum is insolvent. But you can download the driver from here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/gwpsteo010q8d8o/VarioPro_NVDA_driver-master.zip?dl=1

 

The github repository is here:

https://github.com/BAUM-Engineering/VarioPro_NVDA_driver

 

In order for the braille display to show up in NVDA’s settings, please do following. Don’t forget to read the readme file and the gesture map.

  1. After you download the files, find the .py file and copy it in the clipboard
  2. Open the run dialog by pressing Windows+r
  3. Type %appdata%
  4. Go to NVDA and then to Braille display drivers
  5. Paste the .py file in that folder

 

Now when you start NVDA, in the braille settings you should find the Baum vario pro braille display and NVDA should recognize it.

 

Babbage or NV Access would finalize the driver but they need access to a device for doing that.

 

Best

Adriani

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.

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.

Hi, everyone,

Lately I’ve had a problem with NVDA crashing. I’m using NVDA RC 1 2019.1.
I’m not sure why this is happening. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your
help in advance.

Hi Rosemary,

 

Where is it on the web page?  Or, do you have link to it?  Thanks,
