Re: 32Bit or 64Bit Office with NVDA

René Linke <rene.linke@...>
 

Hi Noah,

Both of them are accessible.
If you using a Windows 64 bit you should install the 64 bit of Office though, and the same for 32 bit.

32Bit or 64Bit Office with NVDA

 

Hi All,


I am installing office for the first time. Should I use the 32bit or 64bit versions of office. Which one has the most compatibility?


Thanks in advance,


Noah


Re: Accessible antivirus programs

 

As Gene has mentioned, Windows Defender, now Windows Security as of Version 1809, as implemented under Windows 8 and 10 is "not your grandfather's Windows Defender."   It is routinely placing in the top 10/preferred tool lists for virtually all of the antivirus testing labs these days. 

Here's a cut and paste of something I very recently posted to Bleeping Computer that's directly pertinent here:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is hilarious that the PC Mag article spouts the nonsense, "you shouldn't rely on Microsoft's security tools. Many free third-party security apps are more effective at keeping you safe."

 

They apparently don't bother looking at the very test results they claim to follow.  The most recent test results are at the links below.  Pay attention to where Windows Defender falls into the mix.  It's nowhere near the bottom and it's often near the top.   The current iteration of Windows Defender consistently tests well, and often in the top 10.

[Chart on Pg 8]

 

 

And take a look at the archival material from the past few years if you want to see how often Windows Defender lands near the top.

Re: Accessible antivirus programs

It is fine, however, to run more than one antispyware program.  Not more than one antivirus program and not more than one combination of programs that are antispyware and antivirus programs.  Two programs that are in whole or in part both antivirus programs should not be run simultaneously. 
 
It is worth noting, that Windows Defender has improved significantly since it's terrible time about two years ago.  I would suggest reading current reviews of it and reviews that compare it with other antimalware and antivirus programs.  Windows Defender combines both functions.  I'm not saying it should or shouldn't be used.  I'm saying that, with the significant improvement, it should not be assumed that it shouldn't and that to make an informed choice, you need current information, as you should have when considering any program since things change very quickly.  I consider most reviews of computer programs that are more than roughly six months old to be not necessarily incorrect, but not reliable and needing confirmation by current information because of the constant changes taking place in computer programs.

One should never, ever, use more than one antivirus/security suite in full protection mode.  That way lies the road to crippled systems.

This is not saying that you cannot install a different antivirus/security suite, but if you do all third party ones I've ever dealt with disable Windows Defender so that there will not be a conflict while they are in place.  Windows Defender can still be used for standalone on-demand file scans, but it will not be running as a full security suite.

Re: Are There Now or Has There Recently Been a Problem with Donating . . .

 

We're located in the USA and she's not using PayPal.

The issue is that, at least on that attempt, the donate mechanism would not do what it conventionally does, allow you to pick your currency of donation so that you actually know what you're donating.  It all gets converted to Australian dollars in the end, but I, as an end user, would never want to express my donation in a currency whose value I am not certain of.  If I lived in the EU I'd want to know what I'm donating in Euros, in the UK in Pounds Sterling, etc., etc., etc.

It was just weird that in the attempt I mentioned it allowed you to do the usual selections, but the donation would not go through and everything reverted to Australian dollars immediately after the failed attempt.

I just wanted to put this on record since it might be some sort of persistent problem.  It also might not, but you can't even check on what you don't know about.

Yes indeed, you do not say where you are, but I guess it could be that the payment method is the issue from the US person.
I normally use Paypal as its no more expensive conversion wise than using my debit card directly from my bank and the experience is far more accessible than the banks one is. Sad to say, a lot of banks in the UK seem to have convoluted systems when obviously companies like Amazon and payment services like Paypal seem to have got it nailed for accessibility.

Hi!

I’ve never yet heard of anyone being unable to donate because the amount is given in a foreign currency, but maybe it’s happened to others without them mentioning it on this list.

If you don’t mind me asking, what is wrong with donating to NV-Access in Australian dollars?

I live in France, where the local currency is euros, and all my donations to NV-Access have been in Australian dollars, even though my PayPal account is in euros: every time I’ve made a donation, the receipt from PayPal has told me both the exchange rate and how much I have paid out in euros after conversion. If your friend wants to pay a donation with a credit card instead of with PayPal, the bank should be able to do the conversion. If she is not allowed to use any currency other than US dollars, that’s a matter to take up with her bank.

Given that I have never had problems donating to NV-Access in Australian dollars, I don’t know whether there is any means of donating with a different currency by credit card, but maybe others can help if there is.

Bye for now!

I ask because a friend of mine who's a long term NVDA user, and has donated many times along the way, mentioned to me this evening that when she did the latest update she could not get through making a donation. We're in the USA, and she describes the situation as being that no matter how many times she tried to get the donation currency set to USD and enter her credit card information things kept reverting back to Australian dollars and starting the whole "fill in the form" process again.

She's been a screen reader user since there were screen readers, and knows NVDA inside and out. I thought I'd mention this here as it would be a shame if this were not an isolated incident and others who wish to donate were being stymied in doing so.

Well only a couple of minutes ago I did a donate. it is far easier and fast than its ever been for me.
You simply choose your amount in Australian Dollars, and in my case log in to Paypal, this then shows you where paypal is going to take the funds from and the actual amount in your own currency, if you agree to that then you simply click donate and in a moment its done and two emails come in, on from NV access and one from Paypal confirming what you did.


At least in the UK that is what happens.

Re: Beeping driving me mad

Joseph,

 

I am so sorry to have caused such a fuss! I don’’t need the object location tones myself, but, since you have created the tool, It is obvious that others do need them. I had such trouble finding what was causing the beeps that I became really agitated. As soon as I disabled the Object location tones add-on all was well.

 

I appreciate the great work that you do.

Hi,

Ah, this shows I need to be careful with Add-on Updater…

This is caused by Object Location Tones. To turn beeps off, you need to disable this add-on.

Note that this add-on could have qualified as “proof of concept” if it came out this year, as I wrote a pull request in NVDA itself that’ll let you hear location tones when you move focus, use object navigation commands, or both. Because Object Location Tones came out last year, it doesn’t really qualify, but it might later. And, yes, I wrote Object Location Tones add-on, and apologies for inconvenience caused by this add-on.

Did you check to see if this happens only when NVDA is being used?  I am not aware of any such setting in NVDA.  Whether any add-on may cause such behavior or have a setting that does, I don't know.  If you haven't done so, test with NVDA running and add-ons disabled and, if you still have the behavior, test using a different screen-reader.

Yeah I know this. Some of us on the windows list have it, I'll wait as they I think are having some issues with some of our sound card drivers. Let's hope what evr happened though does not happen again, that was so not fun. And it took about 5 minutes to boot which was also odd as I never heard the "working on updates" thing. It is fine this monign though as far as I can tell.

Could be its downloading the new version but not installing it.I do notice even on 7 that when a big security update is being downloaded it can be very slowing. I'd imagine this is partly due to anti virus checking the new files and partly maybe due to the issues in another thread on here about uia and multiple tasks in nvda. Hopefully when its done the download it will speed up again and then you will need to decide whether to allow the update.

I am a little confused as it seems Microsoft has released to some people earlier than they said, but who knows what their rule is. Brian

Do you have the object location tones add-on installed?

If so, disable, or uninstall it, and, see if that makes a difference?

If its anything like the 3D sounds one, you can configure it so only events you want to make a noise.

Gene,



Just to improve your knowledge of NVDA, I can assure you that there are many
beep related settings in NVDA. However, I have just found the particular
add-on is the "Object Location Tones" add-on. I have disabled it and now all
is quiet and pleasant again!



All the best,



Cearbhall

Did you check to see if this happens only when NVDA is being used? I am not
aware of any such setting in NVDA. Whether any add-on may cause such
behavior or have a setting that does, I don't know. If you haven't done so,
test with NVDA running and add-ons disabled and, if you still have the
behavior, test using a different screen-reader.
