Re: windows ten and nvda 2017 versions:

Luke Davis
 

Arlene, Zahra is correct. I keep a copy of 2017.3 around for add-on testing, and its basic functions work quite well under Windows 10 up to, at least, Win 10 version 1909.

However, essential items like the Add-on Updater, and Windows 10 App Essentials, do not work with it, unless you dig up some very old versions.

Basically it is highly inadvisable to use such an old version of NVDA on Windows 10, and there are rarely any good reasons to do so, unless you need to use it to find bugs for add-ons and things like that.

I would certainly never use it as my daily screen reader.

Re: speaking commands

Quentin Christensen
 

If you press NVDA+4, or toggle "Speak command keys" in NVDA's keyboard settings, it will speak keys such as ENTER or CONTROL+S.

NVDA doesn't automatically know that CONTROL+S is save, so it generally won't automatically announce that, however if the keystroke brings up something like a save dialog, then that would be announced (for instance the first time you press control+s in a new document in Word).

Not directly related to control+s, but there is a "clipspeak" add-on which will report the functions of some keys such as control+c (Copy) and control+v (paste) where they perform those functions: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/clipspeak.en.html

Kind regards

Quentin.

you can use 'nvda extention global add-on'. it has wonderful features
including speaking of commands. it is a private add-on though.

In a nutshell, it reregisters some dlls that might have some how become unregistered for lack of a better term. I would restart nvda, but I'm not sure if that really is necessary.

Ok looking at your log, there are a few errors with various add-ons.  I think not all are compatible with NVDA 2020.2 (or even Python 3?) That is why it is working when you restart with add-ons disabled.  If you disable all add-ons and re-enable one at a time until you start hitting errors you will be able to narrow down which add-ons are causing problems.

Re: Possible to Push Files on a PC using Remote Access?

Kenny <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

Thanks Luke for sharing this link.


Looks like TeamViewer would be a viable option for me to push files from one PC to another during a Direct Remote session.


Just hoping it allows the seemless use of a screenreader to be controlled through the remote session. One of the reasons why I wish the NVDA Remote Access add-on provided this functionality.


Guess I'll find out in a few minutes when I begin to use it.

nvda unresponsiveness

Marisane Moruthanyana
 

Good day gentle people

I trust you are still well and safe from corona.

I am trying.

My experience is that nvda is unresponsive to outlook.com interface.

Does anyone of you have the same experience?

I cannot find the buttons to log out even when I activated the my
account submenu where these buttons are found when using jaws.

What is wrong with nvda?

Please assist.

Furthermore, is there any tutorial on nvda with outlook.com?

Your assistance is appreciated in advance.

Re: NVDA Freezing/Crashing with Office 365 - Word and Outlook

Quentin Christensen
 

Could you get me a copy of your NVDA log to have a look at please, ideally at debug level?
Please send it attached to an email to info@....  Include a description of what you have done and what isn't working as it should (so I know what it's about in case I don't get to investigate today).

First of all, your NVDA key is either INSERT or CAPS LOCK, depending on how you have NVDA setup.  So, to set your log level:
1) Press NVDA+control+g to open the general settings
2) Press TAB until the focus is on ""Log level""
3) Press DOWN ARROW to get to ""Debug""
4) Press ENTER to close settings
5) Press NVDA+control+c to save settings.

To restart NVDA with add-ons disabled:
1) Press NVDA+Q
2) Down arrow to ""Restart with add-ons disabled""
3) Press ENTER

Next, recreate the issue - do whatever causes problems.

To get NVDA's log after that, there are several ways:

If NVDA is still running and usable:
1) Press NVDA+F1 to open the log viewer
2) Press CONTROL+A to select all.
3) Press CONTROL+C to copy.
4) Open your email and start a message to info@..., type a little about what you have done and what has happened in the body of the message, then leave a space and:
5) Press CONTROL+V to paste the copied log.

Instead of using the log viewer, or if NVDA has stopped and you needed to restart it or the computer:
1) Press WINDOWS+R to open Windows' Run dialog
2) Type %temp% and press ENTER (that's the percent sign, the letter t e m p and another percent sign).  Windows Explorer should open to the temporary folder.
3) Press TAB to move to the file list
4) Press N and move down to find up to three files:  nvda.log (the log file for the current or most recent NVDA session), nvda-old.og (the log from the previous session) and nvda-crash.dmp (a crash dump with more information created if NVDA itself crashes).
5) Depending on what email program you use, the steps will be different, but attach as many of those three files to an email to info@... as will be useful, and again in the body of the message describe a bit about what has happened.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: nvda error tone

Quentin Christensen
 

The Alpha and Beta versions of NVDA play an error sound whenever an error is written to the log.  In many cases, when NVDA hits an error, it is able to fall back and try something else which works - so the end result for the user is that whatever they expected happens as it should.  The error sound is largely there for developers to investigate their fixes and code to ensure it is not producing errors.  We turn the sound off in the RC and Stable builds.

There has been discussion previously about how best to implement this sound - whether to have a toggle to enable or disable it for instance, but no change has been made.

Kind regards

Quentin.
