Re: Firefox crashing after upgrading to NVDA rc3

Pranav Lal
 

Hi Felix,

I am on Windows 10. I suspect the problem is with firefox. I have installed it once again and if I launch firfefox from the desktop icon, I can use it but if I go to the run box with windows + r and type my URL, the firefox that comes up crashes. I do not know what has happened to my installation.

Reason10 is not blind friendly and I don't think it ever will be
same with fruityloops

Hi all music makers!

Has anyone else succeeded in doing this?

We have Reason10 installed on a laptop computer running NVDA and Windows 10. When we open Reason10 a logon screen comes up and NVDA can only detect a blank edit field followed by a protected edit field. No prompts are evident to NVDA and no other text or icons are detectable on this screen. We type the user name into the open edit field and the password into the covered edit field and press enter in hope of success. Nothing happens. We tried the reverse, even though that does not seem logical, and still nothing happens.

Is that it? Does someone else have a way to access this program?

All comments and observations welcome.

Re: nvda 2018 rc3 itunes issue

Clare Page <clare.page@...>
 

Hi!
If my experience is anything to go by, iTunes 12.9took ages to start when I opened it to test NVDA 2018.3 RC3 with it, but NVDA eventually started talking, that's when I discovered that this release candidate works well with iTunes 12.9.
You didn't say which iTunes version you were using, Joseph, so I can't guess whether the new NVDA release candidate still works with iTunes 12.8 or not.
Bye for now!

Re: itunes issue handled

Clare Page <clare.page@...>
 

Hi!
Please ignore my previous email, it wasn't until I'd sent it that I read that a fix for the iTunes 12.9 issue has already been worked on and is part of NVDA 2018.3 RC3.
Many thanks to whoever worked on this fix, especially for being able to do it so quickly so that it could go into RC3. I don't usually download release candidates of NVDA, but I'm glad I did this time, to be able to use iTunes again without downgrading. What's more, I can now answer my own question about whether the fix for iTunes 12.9 works in Windows 7: it does, very well. Admittedly the layout of the new iTunes is a bit different, but once I'd signed in and found my library, everything worked fine there.
Bye for now, and thanks again to the NVDA developers for all their good work!

Hi.

Wow joseph and all, that was a really quick fix, itunes uia works now
its just like it was.

For now I have loaded rc3 on the effected machines and it works.

Its good this came out during an near update cycle.

What was actually wrong and did my descriptions help at all.

Its good that all things work as expected though.

I have all my systems on the latest itunes now.

Thanks for promptly fixing.

Have any of the devs looked at the itunes 12.9 window and see exactly what it is, the universal app and the desktop versions appear to be the same, menus and the like work, the main window is not visible to nvda.

And since it works with just about everything, I am now wandering if its a simple thing.

I can't fix it, but maybe there could be an addon for itunes universal and that would work with both versions.

This knee jerk about apple being totally crap well it is a knee jerk reaction, but to be honest if its just an communication/ interaction issue maybe this will help with access to other windows.
