Re: Path On Portable Copy

this would be a good idea. a warning saying that this will extract all files to the root of the said drive. but I would rather it created a folder buy default called nvda.

Yes but its the start of the process that is the problem. I think it could default to creating a folder on whatever drive called nvda. and there is nothing to stop you renaming the folder later if you like.
However to the uninitiated, the installer makes a folder in the program files areas but create the portable from it and its  got to be done manually. the least they could do after you select the drive is warn you that it will go into the root if you continue in my view.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Path On Portable Copy
Hi
For as long as i have been using a portable version it has never made a directory called nvda. If the usb stick has no other files it will put all the files needed splattered on the stick as you found out.
I have always made a directory called nvda usually on the usb stick.
But lets say at the moment i have 3 copies of nvda.
the stable version makes it own directory.
The other 2 i made a directory called master snap shots and another directory called next snap shots of which i test them when those files for those snapshots have been put into them.
this way it is not confusing for me to tell which is which in the folders.
It would be a pane  if it done nvda for each directory on the c: drive it would either over write it or one would be called nvda 2 or some thing.
It is much tidier making a directory called nvda on a usb stick and then you can have other directories for other files and keep them tidy.
the new process in the up coming release for updating the portable is much nicer 2 basically when you go to update it from off the usb stick you are using it will download it to your usb stick then update over the top of it which it did not do before. it is in the next release coming out unless you have 2018.2 rc2 you can try it now.

Hi,
I just tried to make a portable copy of NVDA, after updating my local copy.
I gave it the right drive path, but I did not specify \NVDA
This made a mess in my drive and I hope I only deleted the NVDA files in order to re-do it.
I have made portable copies of NVDA many times before.
I thought that it automatically made the NVDA directory.
Did this change?
I would think that by default, it should create a folder called \NVDA.

You are definitely correct that ALT+number row 2 is for the second item in the QAT, but every instance of Windows 10 I've dealt with, as shipped, has only two items in the quick access toolbar for file explorer:  Properties (1), New Folder (2).

There are six functions one can check or uncheck to include on the Quick Access Toolbar:  Undo, Redo, Delete, Properties, New Folder, Rename in that order from top to bottom.  The order in which one checks the various items if all are unchecked determines which position number each will have, 1 through 6 [or whatever number you have checked] on the QAT visually and their invocation via ALT+number row 1 through 6.

But, by default, and unless the system has been customized, ALT+2 should be New Folder.

skype

 

Hi.

I didn't mean I will leave the email list just the dev group.

As for what you are saying, I guess this shows you how much skype is a part of my life.

Its not a big part of my life, it was before but most business is via phone and email.

Right now bar family oversease I don't actually need skype and with them all being on whats app its easier for them to not bother with skype at all.

I havn't spoken to contacts on skype for ages, hardly do it.

I never used the skype featureset that well, so the fact that I have to learn a new set doesn't interest me right now may never do since my eventual plan is probably to go whats app eventually.

Definitely try it again.  It does work.

I still prefer CTRL+SHIFT+N even though it's 3 keys because CTRL+SHIFT is a "no reacher" and N is on the other hand.  ALT+2 works, but it's more of a stretch for me.

Chacun à son goût!

The alt+numrow 2 is not a file explorer shortcut to create a new folder.  It’s a shortcut to the second item on the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar) and as this is user configurable, it could be anything.  In my file explorer here in the UK, the QAT default set up is alt+numrow 1 to display properties and alt+numrow 2 to open a new folder but it may not necessarily be like this in other countries.

The following uses JAWS commands for a couple of things, but any NVDA user
should be able to "translate" to NVDA with relative ease. *

Creating a Desktop Shortcut for a Program/App Under Windows 10*

by Bill White

1. Go to your desktop and make sure nothing is selected. To do this: press
CONTROL plus SPACE, then JAWS (or other screen reader) should say, “Not
Selected.” If you need to, hit CTRL+SPACE again.

2. Press Applications/Menu Key or SHIFT plus F10, and Arrow down to the
New Submenu, then press ENTER.

3. ARROW down to Shortcut then press ENTER.

4. When it asks you to type the location of the shortcut, type:
%windir%\explorer.exe shell:Appsfolder

5. TAB to the Next button then press ENTER.

6. When it asks for a name for the shortcut, press the DELETE key then
type: AppsFolder

7. TAB to the Finish button, then press ENTER.

8. Now, on your desktop, you will have a shortcut that reads: AppsFolder

9. If you press ENTER on this shortcut, a special Windows system folder
will open containing all of your apps.

10. Now, create any shortcut for an app as follows:

11. Press ENTER on the AppsFolder icon.

12. Use First-letter Navigation to find and select the app for which you
want the shortcut on your desktop.

13. ARROW down to Create Shortcut, then press ENTER.

14. When it tells you that a shortcut can’t be created here, and it asks
if you want a shortcut on the desktop, press ENTER on Yes.

15. That’s it. Now you will have a shortcut for your desired app on the
desktop, along with the AppsFolder shortcut, which you can use later when
you need to create another desktop shortcut.

Re: i need list of accessible browsers

If you're looking for a perfect browser, you won't find one. You could try waterfox and see if that works for you.

for me.

program for accessibility using with nvda?

If you're looking for a list which is tuned to your personal criteria, then

you are the best person to create such a list, based on your own assessment

what works well and what doesn't.

If you're looking for a general list which may be applicable to people other

than yourself, then I think I've already given reasons why it doesn't
exist.

hi antony,
for number 2, as you know, i only have nvda on windows and dont know
and dont have any operating systems and screen reader except windows
and nvda.
i dont use video websites, online shopp, games, messengers, etc.
so, i need the information for general usage of browsers in
accessibility with nvda,
the browsers that are based on gecko and chrome,
and also specially about the browsers that i mentioned there names in
my previous comment.
please help, thanks so much, God bless you!

I do not think you will find such a list, because:

1. browsers change too quickly, with new releases, bug fixes, extra
features etc, so it would be a lot of work to keep any list up to date
with these changes

2. there isn't a single measure of "accessibility" because some browser
features work better with NVDA than with JAWS, some work better with
JAWS
than with Voiceover, some work better with Braille than with speech
output, so there isn't a single way of measuring the accessibility of a
browser that is meaningful to everyone

3. it also depends on what sort of websites you visit and what you want
to do with your browser, so for some purposes and users one browser /
screenreader combination may be best, but for other uses and users that
may not be the best choice.

Antony.

Re: Addint a Desktop Shortcut for Programs or Apps under Windows 10

Hi, Brian,


Wow, this is good to know! With all the computer training I've had, I wasn't taught this. Thanks so much for this info.

The following uses JAWS commands for a couple of things, but any NVDA user should be able to "translate" to NVDA with relative ease.


Creating a Desktop Shortcut for a Program/App Under Windows 10

             by Bill White

1. Go to your desktop and make sure nothing is selected. To do this: press CONTROL plus SPACE, then JAWS (or other screen reader) should say, “Not Selected.”  If you need to, hit CTRL+SPACE again.

2. Press Applications/Menu Key or SHIFT plus F10, and Arrow down to the New Submenu, then press ENTER.

3. ARROW down to Shortcut then press ENTER.

4. When it asks you to type the location of the shortcut, type:  %windir%\explorer.exe shell:Appsfolder

5. TAB to the Next button then press ENTER.

6. When it asks for a name for the shortcut, press the DELETE key then type:  AppsFolder

7. TAB to the Finish button, then press ENTER.

8. Now, on your desktop, you will have a shortcut that reads:  AppsFolder

9. If you press ENTER on this shortcut, a special Windows system folder will open containing all of your apps.

10. Now, create any shortcut for an app as follows:

11. Press ENTER on the AppsFolder icon.

12. Use First-letter Navigation to find and select the app for which you want the shortcut on your desktop.

13. ARROW down to Create Shortcut, then press ENTER.

14. When it tells you that a shortcut can’t be created here, and it asks if you want a shortcut on the desktop, press ENTER on Yes.

15. That’s it. Now you will have a shortcut for your desired app on the desktop, along with the AppsFolder shortcut, which you can use later when you need to create another desktop shortcut.
