Re: book extensively dealing with NVDA or JAWS and the internet

Gene
 

I am not familiar with the book you are discussing.

Cathy Anne Murtha is a very well regarded instructor. I did a search of her web site for Internet Explorer and here is a link to the results.
https://www.blind.training/?s=internet

It appears she only has material for the Internet using JAWS but browsing will be almost identical.
Since I don't know what you want to learn, you might wish to contact her and ask if the book deals with the topics you want to learn.

Also, since I don't know what you want to learn, I don't know if a book is the best way to proceed. You might be able to learn what you want by asking questions here or on the chat list, whichever is appropriate for what you want to learn. Or one or two hours of personal instruction might be a good approach.

If you give us an idea of what you want to learn, you may get better help for your specific needs.

Re: firefox and waterfox issues.

Gene
 

Of course, it may be something else. I don't have the technical knowledge to do more than guess.

Aside from that, I don't see anything cluttered about the Chrome interface. Browsing is browsing when you are using Browse mode or the Virtual PC Cursor, different names for the same thing. The interface is different but the only place where I find that an annoyance is when working with history. and I still haven't found a way to go back more than about a day in Chrome history. I wonder if there is some sort of inaccessible scroll icon.

Yeah, its starting to become a thing I am jumping towards to.
Since firefox and waterfox share some features well that makes sence.
I have downgraded to 2020.8.1, but even in the 08x series the system
has been running hot with the brouser active so there could be a leak
going on.
I like classic waterfox because of its uncluttered nature, but if the
makers of this thing refuse to acknowledge that its a problem on their
end, then I am going to have to abandon noscript 5, and try to use
chrome, edge, brave or something.
I'd ideally like a firefox like classic brouser.
What I may have to do is switch back and fforth.
Right now I am running an older waterfox classic which does what I
need it to do but yeah, I am starting to get that to.
Its random, sometimes its fine then sometimes its not.
It can happen quickly or it can well happen later on and randomly.
Taking into account that I have at least 1 site I use for work which
is known to be slow and a lot slower now because it just is who knows.
Its only happening if I load several things in the same tab, any new
tabs are not effected.
At first I thought it was java or malware but its getting to crazy
now, worse its even happening on sites like blogspot where I don't
allow any scripts to execute.
I'll give those at waterfox/firefox a little more time to do something
about this but if not I am going to have to switch to chrome for my
day to day work.
Now chrome aint a bad brouser but I like a classic and uncluttered interface.
Bar the addons from electronic frontier, privacy, badger, and https
everywhere, as well as ublock, the only addon I need is the old
navigation sounds and accessible noscript addon and heck I probably
could do without that but I like control.
Point is I can't go on like this.
I have allready done a hardreset on my ram modules after a firmware
update caused some issues, and while that has sorted out some stuff,
when this goes it turns nvda into junk.
Mostly narator will come up file and closing the program works fine
but the last time this happened this morning it took out part of nvda
keyboard and I had to reboot nvda manually and then restart windows.
I have struggled through this for the last 3 days now since the update
and am just about through.

Hi all.

There is an issue on github of both waterfox and nvda about how the
brouser is really flakey in the latest version.

Aparently firefox has the same issues, at first I thought it was just a
couple sites, but now I can be brousing along and it may be blogspot,
github, another site, and things will become unresponsive.

I thought I'd fixed it this morning but no I hadn't.

If you open sites each in a new tab things do not crash but eventually
if you open things in the same window things will crash and become
unresponsive.

This never happened on the previous waterfox version but if its
happening in firefox as well as waterfox classic then there is a problem.

I like classic waterfox for what it is but if its going to do this sort
of thing I may have to use chrome and hope it doesn't do this.

I don't like what chrome does to some number conversions in sites like
pbtech.co.nz as they don't read decimals right because how the numbers
and such on the site are done but well things just seem to be well doing
bad things right now.

Interested to get to the bottem of this.

Re: Mostly used media player with NVDA

 

Well not sure about pot, but yeah, itunes has some good points.
The chief among them is the use of gracenote which is really cool
something in a hurry itunes will do it for me.
If I want to buy something I want and can't find it other places, then
itunes will have it.
Right, so the biggest issue I have with itunes then is that it seems
to add its own markups onto prices of things I know are cheaper in
other digital stores.
That and the fact the icloud app secures part of itself so system
restore just doesn't work with it and no, I can't find any way to make
that go away.
There used to be a way but I can't find now now.

Re: Pronunciation of phone numbers

 

George,

            Do you use a consistent format for your phone numbers?   For example, are all written with the area code in parentheses, (814) 536-2250, or all written as area code hyphen exchange hyphen last 4 digits, 814-536-2250, or some other format that's consistent?

            It is possible to achieve what you're looking for using regular expression matching, but it's helpful to know how you format phone numbers so that the regex can be constructed correctly.

Rumola Bypass Captcha

Ibrahim Ajayi
 

Hi good people:
Please does anyone in this group use the rumola bypass captcha extension for Chrome?
I found this extension some how, and I subsequently  installed it on my PC, but it appears not to be working.
I tried it  out  on two different websites with captchas, and the extension didn't recognize them.
I learnt that ifthis happens one should go to the context menu, and select insert automatically, or something i can't remember. But  even with hat nothing gets inserted.
Please if anyone uses this extension and it is working, kindlyy give me tips on how I can use it successfully.
The app does not work on firefox.
Regards.
Ibrahim.

Yes.  But, and it's a big but with Windows 10, that's only if Fast Startup is turned OFF, and it is ON by default.  One of the first things I do when setting up systems is to turn Fast Startup OFF. 

When Fast Startup is in use, the state of Windows 10 is written out from RAM to disc for reloading when the system is next powered up.  It is an alternative form of hibernation where only the Windows 10 state is saved, but not the user data state, which is also saved in full hibernation.   Some of the most bizarre issues I've ever encountered have occurred when the special hibernation file used by Fast Startup develops corruptions over time, and if a system has an SSD as its operating system disc there is virtually zero difference in boot up time when it's off and it's not a huge gain even when HDDs are in use.

I just updated firmware on windows for all the hp systems I have.

The fans raced things didn't work right, etc.

I was able to reset the unit.

Generally with a system like a desktop with only a power button, pull out the power and remove any disks, and other hardware.

Then just hold down power or reset for 5-15 seconds, then plug power and keyboard in, then turn everything on, you may have to hit enter to get it to start.

Then everything just works and you plug things in.

With laptops, pull out the battery, and hold power for 15 seconds, put battery in, plug things back in and turn on.

If sealed, do everything as above and don't remove battery.

So far the system has not gone fluffy yet.

Just make sure all drivers and firmware are updated to latest and it works.

Re: NVDA Speech delay after Computer is Idle

I have no idea how to get there and this just started recently. However, it is sporadic. I left the computer on and was gone for almost three hours and it worked as soon as I touched it when I came back. It is really strange.

Sounds like a power management issue

Possibly because  your hard drive is going to sleep, the delay may well be because you are using a mechanical HDD drive ,

 

Rather than a solid state SSD drive

 

You can prevent your hard drive going to sleep through your advanced power plan settings

If it is the computer going to sleep how do you wake it up? Is there a setting that may have gotten changed with the latest Windows update. I did not have this problem until then.

Hi,

Go to community add-ons website, select StationPlaylist, and download the development version. Also, subscribe to NvDA-SPL list located at:

https://nvda-spl.groups.io/g/nvda-spl

Usually I do not announce development build announcements on this list so folks will not be overwhelmed. Note that these development builds are really bleeding-edge builds, sometimes requiring most recent NVDA stable version (or in some cases, beta or even alpha releases). I’ll make an important announcement about development builds as part of an upcoming SPL add-on release announcement.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

To name an encoder, when an encoder is focused, press Alt+NVDA+0 to open encoder settings dialog for the selected encoder. The first option will be “encoder label” and you can use this field to label your encoder whatever you like. To remove an encoder label, go to the encoder with the label you wish to delete, press Alt+NVDA+0, then delete whatever is shown on “encoder label” field.

In the past an encoder labeler command was provided (F12) to open a dialog dedicated to labeling encoders. This was removed in a recent add-on release. F12 command is coming back this November to open encoder settings dialog (currently being tested by our testers).

Cheers,

Joseph
