Crap!


Forgive me.


I thought this was on the Win10 list, not NVDA.


This being said, I'm still seeing this as well with NVDA.


Pardon my carelessness.

NVDA 18.2.1 and bluetooth audio issue

Chris O'Brien
 

As of release 18 I have been having issues pushing NVDA output to my Bluetooth headphones on my Windows 10 laptop. All audio output from the laptop is successfully sent to the headset (including JAWS output) except for NVDA which plays from the laptop speakers. Interestingly enough, when I toggle the earphones off the audio stops playing on the desktop.

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

Re: NVDA and windows 10 safe mode

Brice Mijares
 

I believe someone posted this on this list some time back and I saved it. Never tried it, but I'd make sure someone with sight was around the first time I try it.
Hi all,
You can reboot in to safe mode by doing the following:
press windows plus r and type
msconfig and hit inter
press ctrl plus tab to get to the "boot tab"
tab to "safe boot" and check the check mark
tab to "base video" and check it as well.
tab to the OK button and press it, you'd get a prompt to restart
computer to apply changes,
if you select "restart now" your PC should restart into safe mode.
after finishing your PC job with safe mode, do the same steps above
but this time uncheck the two check marks above for both safeboot, and
base video. and press OK and restart,
your PC will restart to the normal mode.
I hope it helps.

Re: say blank lines

I'm not sure if you can.  I'll try an experiment.  But why are you down arrowing through messages?  Are you using speak to end?  Blank won't be spoken.

NVDA and windows 10 safe mode

Don Risavy, Jr.
 

Someone a while back mentioned something about being able to use NVDA on the windows 10 safe mode and would talk.

So wondered how does someone get that to work if possible with the latest NVDA?

Thanks.

It appears as though Windows has provided a new better way to search for a desired message. It has added a constellation of options to the search field. It is possible to tab through these, but I have not succeeded in figuring out a keyboard path to the sorted mailbox list. Using Magnifier, I can click on it, but has anyone figured out the keyboard steps to getting there?

I have searched for a way to revert to the earlier and much simpler search tool, but with no luck.

This is not an NVDA issue, as the problem is true for other screen  readers. Another example of “if it ain’t broke, don’t’ fix it.”

I actually hate chrome on windows. I dunno what it is. It’s fast but to me feels sticky and clunky. I will only use chrome for youtube as that’s when it in my humble opinion works the best.

If you try Chrome, you will no longer want to use anything else.
Just a suggestion of course.

Hi Gene,


This whole issue with Firefox is odd, but since I have seen no complaints about Firefox sluggishness or unresponsiveness from sighted people, the issue has to be somehow related to screen reader usage and/or the way JAWS, NVDA and other screen readers interface with Firefox under very complex conditions.  I am still wondering about video card or internal video chips conflicts. I know everyone at Freedom Scientific/VFO used to get mad at me when I worked for them every time something like this would happen with a program--wherein some people had no issues and others had several issues.  I would bring up video card/chip conflicts of issues and they would yell at me that all such issues involving screen readers (in the words of the old gospel song) it was all settled long ago.  Still, I wonder!

this discussion needs perspective, in my opinion.
 
Which version of firefox is inefficient with memory?  According to a review I read of the new Firefox, it is much more efficient with memory.  and efficient or not, no browser is going to require that a computer have 4 or 5gb of RAM to work. 
 
and the slowness is, as far as I can reasonably infer, because of unresolved accessibility issues.  Since there are very conflicting reports, with some people being very pleased with the new Firefox and others not, we'll have to see how things work out over time.  Something unknown is evidently causing a wide disparity. 
 
If you read reviews by sighted reviewers, the new Firefox is very fast and is now a realistic competitor to Chrome. 
 
Regarding privacy, according to one or two reviews, Firefox is now better at protecting privacy, or providing options to do so, than Chrome. 
 
Waterfox is based on an ESR version of Firefox.  it's a small operation and how well it will keep up with security fixes that are necessary is, as far as I can see, not known.  How will it keep up in general?  If it bases itself on ESR versions of Firefox, and with a new ESR version of Firefox coming out within about a week or less, are all the advantages you like in Waterfox going to disappear?  the new ESR version of firefox, on which Waterfox is based, will be a quantum version.  We'll see what it is like and how people comment on it here.
 
There is, at present, far too much that isn't known about future developments.  A strong antiFirefox bias predisposes against making the best choices in future and may cause people not to pay attention to future developments as soon as they might, thus, perhaps, delaying benefiting from future advantages.

Blimey, I only have 8 gigs of ram. You can with the resource monitor add on

Yeah I'm not. I'm on what ever was released last Tuesday or updates for the

Re: ePUB reading support in Edge: Fwd: Re: Edge evaluated using Spanish interface

Christo de Klerk
 

If returning to the page you had left off is ok for you, you can use Edge's bookmark feature. If you want something more specific, you can return to the actual line you want with the Place Marker add-on. Note, however that the commands ctrl+shift+NVDA+k and NVDA+k for setting and returning to a bookmark don't currently work in Edge, so you have to use the add-on's Specific find feature, ctrl+shift+NVDA+f to set your position and to return to it later. This works fine, though not as conveniently as the currently not working functions.

Regards

Christo

Hello

I started reading an ePub book in the Edge browser and found that it works really well. In fact, I find Edge to be more convenient than Virtual Bookshelf. Today I also tried an ePub book with an audio overlay and it works like a charm. This is really nice.

Dear list and reviewers:

I've evaluated Edge using Spanish interface, since my Windows is set to this language.
Hope keystrokes are right: control+g to use the page feature, f7 for caret browsing and f6 to switch between book contents and reading system features. Please, feel free to change them if they are wrong.

Thanks
