Yes am talking about the add on for NVDA. I don't understand why I
can not get the add on to work with the United States locations. How
do I get it to work cause whenever I type in a US city it comes up
with a different zip code that is not in the US. Is this add on
supposed to work with in the United States or is it something if only
you are in the UK. For example if I type in San Diego California the
zip code is 92107 I try to set that as my city for some reason it is
not taking it. So how can I get this to work?

Re: Merging and autoducking 2 tracks in Audacity

Rich De Steno <ironrock@...>
 

This assumes that you know how to move tracks in Audacity:


Position the music track above the voice track

Position the voice track where you want it to begin in relation to the music track

The music track should be selected and the voice track unselected

Press j then shift-k on the music track

Enter the Effects menu with alt-c then press Enter on Autoduck

Re: NVDA PORTABLE

Antony Stone
 

You could alternatively try downloading the last version of NVDA which
supported Windows 7 without Service Pack 1.

a) that should get you working on this machine, albeit with an older version
of NVDA, until you can install SP1, then you can upgrade NVDA

b) you can then check for yourself, without needing sighted help, whether SP1
is installed or not.

You can download that version from:
https://www.nvaccess.org/download/nvda/releases/2017.3/nvda_2017.3.exe

Well, since you can't currently run NVDA on the machine, you'll need a
sighted helper to look for you. They need to start from Control Panel and
then click on "System and Security" and then "System".

Under the heading "Windows edition", it'll say which version of Windows 7
is installed (eg: Home Premium), and underneath that it will say "Service
Pack 1" if it is installed.

Re: ccleaner new version

Hope Williamson <isepic@...>
 

Oh man, I broke my main system Friday trying to get rid of the evil thing that is Avast! To make a long story short, I was trying to stop it from starting up so I could do the manual uninstall. I went into MSConfig in order to do that and instead of disabling just the Avast services, somehow I managed to disable everything.

    I used to use MSConfig when it was just the list of programs starting up and then a way to stop them. Well now it still gives you the list but then it says either enable all or disable all.

I doubt that its the case.

Adds are usually just spammy adds and I wouldn't trust them.

As for the portable version, its been the same version for ages and ages, that means your installed version from official ccleaner site, is the latest always and you can get it from the builds page.

And even if it became an avast product its not that bad as long as you still had portable.

Look at sophos, look at malwarebytes, malware bytes is a sophos product.

So it can work.

I will not install it but even so ccleaner is still good.

Re: kody

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

OK the fact that its multi platform makes me think that its not been made with any API in mind at all, and this is a worry.

However they do say some things about a web interface for it, so I did wonder if one might be able to control it like that in some way. Obviously I've not tried it as I've only just heard of it, but being open source and one supposes it has a forum and probably some email addresses for queries, your questions about the accessibility are probably better directed there
Apart from Mozilla who do attempt to make their code specific to the operating system and hence its API I have not had much luck with these sort of programmes in the past, sadly.

Media library front ends are notoriously odd and most of those used on home entertainment systems tend to be touch screen or graphic based.

It could be that the so called screenreader is some kind of self voicing interface written similar to the way SpeakOn works.
If its not installing then maybe its something to raze with the authors.

Re: A bug to repport: NVDA works harder in Windows Explorer for some users.

What they need to do I think is firstly find out the build number of their windows. Make sure all add ons are off in nvda.
Set debug as the logging level in the prefs.
Now try the problem, and when things return to normal, restart nvda and start the run box.
type%temp% and enter. In that folder should be the old nvda log, renamed with old in the name!!
Get that into a text editor and have a look at it around the time when the problem happened. Hint its more likely to be near the end as you restarted nvda.
It might show that there is watchdog activity, and phrases like frozen in stack etc. If they then make an account on github, and follow the links to new issue in the nvda section there is a template to fill out and you can either paste in the text file or upload it to the site
If they would rather let you post it here, then do so, but we do need to know the details of the machines and the version of windows in use as there are people here who will know the foibles of each version and probably ve able to guess what might be going on.
I have to say I've had little issues with Winamp in windows 7 and am not totally convinced the lock up etc is completely due to the task switching either, unless there is a lot of animation going on somewhere that needs to be stopped.

Re: NVDA PORTABLE

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

I do often think that one of the perennial problems for programmers is that of making an optimised version for all situations.
I do agree that browsers like the New Firefox is, in my view a backward step in accessibility, and also nvda though faster in it now than it was is also less fast on older browsers, not all but some.
Only the programmers might know why, but I suspect that decisions have to be made about what version of code is used for a given situation, and here it might be that things get slowed down.


I think it perfectly fair comment if you have limited access to modern versions of Windows, that when you find a working version of NVDA that you stay with it. After all I do still have some XP machines running the older versions and they are quite happy and why worry?


The fact is, time and tech do move on and so making something work is a constant catch up game, since we effectively get a complete new windows every half year, which personally I find ridiculous , but that is a whole other discussion for another place. Myself, just as with XP if it continues to suit my needs and does not die, I shall be using windows 7 until forced to change for my main machine for my charity work as it is after all the years of updates much more reliable than a brand new version of windows 10 every six months can ever be.

i believe nvda since its version 2017.3 and later, has focus on
improving windows ten support, microsoft edge, braille and quantum
versions of firefox which i dont need any of them.
i wished to use 2017.2 which has some important features for me, but
unfortunately it is slow in web browsers, and even two or three times
made my keyboard and explorer unusable and made me to forceably
shutdown my system using power key!
the only version that sutes my needs and i did not experience such
problems on it, both using windows xp (my favorite windows version
forever) and even testing with windows seven, is nvda version 2017.1.

i realy love it, very fast and responsive, without hang or making
keyboard and system unusable and i wish and decided to keep and use
nvda 2017.1 forever by the grace of God!

How important is it for you to run a current version. While I don't

I would also add, and this is from my personal experience. The portable version can access mor things when they rerunning in windows 7, than it can when they are on windows 10. This I think has to do with the greater use of UIA on 10, and hence non installed versions of nvda cannot always get access to the data, unless an old way of doing things already exists of course.

Brian,

Yes, absolutely, but exactly how one does this depends on what version of Office one is using.

For Word 2016:
* Select Graphic.
* Hit the Menu/Applications Key or SHIFT + F10, followed by A (Edit A lt Text)
* Select the Alt Text out of the dialog that appears then copy. It is the one and only text box that appears.

For Word 2010:
* Select Graphic.
* Hit the Menu/Applications Key or SHIFT + F10, followed by O (F o rmat Picture)
* In the format dialog that comes up, Alt Text is the last item in the list, once selected navigate to the Alt Text box to copy. There is a title and description box.

I do not know when "the split" in style occurred, so Word 2013 might follow either one of the above methods. I believe 2010 and older all use the method mentioned for 2010.

It did not seem to work in any mode, sadly.
Maybe a new day might make me have a sudden flash of inspiration.

It seems not to be possible. Selecting the graphic tries to paste it all,

which of course fails. using object nav and the click three times to go to
clipboard does not work either. Am I being thick here?
Short of copying it by typing it, and its quite long there seems to be no

way to get at this description but somebody put it in, one assumes so I'd
have thought emulating what they did, should reveal it.
How?

Re: ccleaner new version

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

The problem is that the aggressive Avast people took over PiReform and I understand the old team were not particularly happy about this. In fact the malware was not bad, but I suspect was done deliberately by the disgruntled people who no doubt were getting the chop..
It has scanned OK and now they have at least given people the ability to turn off the snooping, at least we assume they have come clean completely as obviously the free version had to be subsidised by collecting metrics from the users.

The real power bits of ccleaner for me are the ability to look at browser add ons, and tasks and start up items and toggle them, also to see what system restore points are set and to remove old ones.

Hello,

Not a big fan of products like CCleaner. In September of 2017, it was widely reported that the backdoor was being exploited to have malware implanted. And another report last December:

The actual malware detected in CCleaner was found to contain malicious code: the attackers implanted their code in a legitimate product that received a legitimate certificate.

Who knows when or if the above will happen again. Use the product at your own risk.

Re: ccleaner new version

 

I doubt that its the case.

Adds are usually just spammy adds and I wouldn't trust them.

As for the portable version, its been the same version for ages and ages, that means your installed version from official ccleaner site, is the latest always and you can get it from the builds page.

And even if it became an avast product its not that bad as long as you still had portable.

Look at sophos, look at malwarebytes, malware bytes is a sophos product.

So it can work.

I will not install it but even so ccleaner is still good.

In my experience the portable is normally an older version to the installed one.

I also noticed something in an advert on filehippo yesterday, an advert for an Avast system cleaning utility. Could we be nearing the end of ccleaner now they belong to Avast as it seems half the universe now does?

Can you please provide a link to the latest portable version? I tried
Googling it and there were several links there, but I tried them all and
none of them seemed to work. I found the download button but when I
activate it it just clicks and shows a screen shot of the Ccleaner
itself but no download occurred on any of those links I found.

Thanks.

Hi all portable ccleaner users.

Here is the updated ini file if you don't want to bother with it.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/m15toyhbsmdy5fb/ccleaner.ini?dl=1

For those that want to know what is changed.

options/privacy needs to be reset because the preffs string is
different.

The only other thing I have done is clear out the version strings
that
existed in there and rebuilt the ics program version string data.

For all the rest, while you can get the slim installer now I have
portable it just works.

Things that have been changed include fixing the privacy setting
issues with extra info added for that option including more
datashheets for it.

The adjusting of the monitering so it says smart cleaning instead to
explain what it does.

If you turn off smart cleaning ccleaner shouldn't stay loaded at
startup anymore.

There is supposed to be a checkbox revamp and some more descriptions
but I have yet to see any change, and to be honest now that I can use
portable easily enough I don't know if I will ever go back to
installed ever again.
