Windows 10 App Essentials on Windows 10Ver1703 (64-bit) build 15063.296

 

Hi List,


I would like to install Win10 App Essentials on a school computer, however I got an error saying that my version is out of date. Can I get the latest version that supports the version of Windows 10 that I'm running? Is it even worth it to install the add-on with such an outdated version?


Thanks,


Noah

Hi everyone,

I think I forgot to share, that I'm on leave and out of the office this week.  I'll try and flick through most of the posts on my return, but if you ask something and don't get an answer here, please do contact me at info@... and I'll be sure to get it next week when I'm back in the office.

Have a great week everyone!

Quentin.

For some reason older versions of Excel work better in NVDA, I suspect half the issue is that it keeps on being down, erm updated by Microsoft!

Re: Files not showing

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

I think first you need to work out definitely that the files are in that folder, not a sub folder of it.. I have never heard of anything like this happening before, so if there are issues it may pay you to revert back to the previous windows 10. You did not say what sort of update it was either. Seldom do the routine updates cause problems its usually the big one like the one due in a few days time that are, I suspect designed to annoy users :-)


I'd also look at making extensions visible too and even system files. You can always change these if you like but it would be interesting to try an explicit operation like typing the complete pathname and file name into the run box and see if the default program can see and load the file.

If it can then it has to be a displaying issue.

Consider the most simple possibility first. Someone who uses Windows 10 can tell you how to do this. Set Windows to show hidden files. perhaps the files became hidden when the update occurred.

Try searching for the files using Windows search feature.

Maybe they somehow did not end up where you expect.

Also refreshing the file explorer window with f5 sometimes seems to help. But that’s probably not going to help you as you say you already opened the explorer window to your new folder *after* copying the files.



You could try other things. Go to where you think the documents ended up on the c (or whatever) drive and check the properties. Does it show space used by the folder? If it says “0 bytes”, it’s possible the files did not even copy.



I’ve never had files physically disappear after a windows update, but it’s possible something is screwed up with the documents library. You should still be able to access the actual documents folder. Maybe open the run box and type in the path to your personal documents folder and see what happens. In my case it would be “c:\users\jm\documents”.

Hi, I'm just starting to use my new Win10 machine. I copied many files and folders from my documents folder of an older machine into the documents folder under "this pc" on the new one. Now when I go to this pc and open the documents folder, all I see is folders; no files. I know they're in there because I was accessing them before windows did an update. Now they don't show up. Neither in "this pc" nor in "file explorer".--my mistake: two filenames do show, an ini file and a zip file. When I look at properties for the folder, I see that there are 286 items in there.
What should I do to get them back?
Thanks.
Sorry; I failed to mention that I'm using the current version of NVDA. But the demo of jaws doesn't see the files either.

Re: Nvda and mp3directcut

A lot of the problem with programs in general is that sighed ways of doing stuff are often given in their tutorials, and has been said here before, often there are short cut keys for the functions that most users never even know exist.

It works very well with nvda and even better if you install the add on for it. It will then announce the position of the beginning and end markers as you move then so you know just what part of the file you've selected.

Is it compatible with nvda?

In fact, you have to enter at least a city or a woeID.

To do this, devi aprire le impostazioni di Weather Plus:

press nvda+control+shift+w

Or nvda menu, preferences, Weather Plus Settings submenu, Set and manage your cities...

Then enter your city and test it.

Finally settle as the default or add it simply in your list and press OK button.

But I advise you to read the documentation, imn particular "Weather Plus First Settings.html"

QuickBooks is somewhat accessible, with NVDA.

How much book keeping do you need ?

If you just need to manage checking accounts I would try “Ace Money Lite”.

Money Talks is a good serviceable checkbook register and check writing program. Much depends on how sophisticated your book keeping needs may be.

 

You can download a functional version for trial. It is self -voicing  but works well with screen readers as well.

HI Jean,

 

I don’t know of a program, I haven’t tried quickbooks yet, but, if you don’t find anything, I’d be happy to do your books for you. It’s a service my company provides, please feel free to contact me off list for more info. Best of luck in finding a program though!

Subject: [nvda] bookkeeping program

 

I am still looking for a bookkeeping program that can be EASILY accessed by NVDA.  Quick Books would be my choice, but I don’t want to spend the money if it won’t work.

Is anyone using any kind of bookkeeping program that you can tell me about?

Thanks so much.

Re: A friend needs info on screen readers history for her thesis

I've seen about four messages all agreeing on this subject.  I think this view is arbitrary and hasn't been logically defended.
 
If the device breaks you can't use it either.  Your Internet service is a monthly paid service.  Your electricity is also.  So is water, to give an unrelated example. 
 
This is completely arbitrary and I haven't seen any argument that is valid that supports this distinction and visceral dislike of subscription services as opposed to not owning, but licensing a product or service.  I only see two valid arguments and I consider one strong and one not very strong.
 
The strong argument is that if you don't intend to keep a program current, you can save enough money to amount to something by licensing it with one payment.  You pay for the program once and then you may be able to use it for years before you may have to upgrade it.
 
The not very strong argument is that if the subscribed program checks with the server to see if it is licensed on a schedule, if something goes wrong with the system, you may not be able to use it until the problem is solved.  That may happen but I don't see people not using electricity, phones, Internet, etc. when the same things could happen. 
 
My view is that the decision involves primarily which is cheaper.  Is it cheaper for someone who wants a current version to license or subscribe?  The same question for someone who doesn't want to upgrade except when necessary.

Agreed. The same goes for me for iOS apps. If something I'm using goes
to a subscription model, off the phone it goes. As with Travis, this
does not apply to storage, backups, etc.

Re: Files not showing

Consider the most simple possibility first.  Someone who uses Windows 10 can tell you how to do this.  Set Windows to show hidden files.  perhaps the files became hidden when the update occurred.

Try searching for the files using Windows search feature.

Maybe they somehow did not end up where you expect.

Also refreshing the file explorer window with f5 sometimes seems to help. But that’s probably not going to help you as you say you already opened the explorer window to your new folder *after* copying the files.

 

You could try other things. Go to where you think the documents ended up on the c (or whatever) drive and check the properties. Does it show space used by the folder? If it says “0 bytes”, it’s possible the files did not even copy.

 

I’ve never had files physically disappear after a windows update, but it’s possible something is screwed up with the documents library. You should still be able to access the actual documents folder. Maybe open the run box and type in the path to your personal documents folder and see what happens. In my case it would be “c:\users\jm\documents”.

Subject: [nvda] Files not showing

 

Hi, I'm just starting to use my new Win10 machine.  I copied many files and folders from my documents folder of an older machine into the documents folder under "this pc" on the new one.  Now when I go to this pc and open the documents folder, all I see is folders; no files.  I know they're in there because I was accessing them before windows did an update.  Now they don't show up.  Neither in "this pc" nor in "file explorer".--my mistake: two filenames do show, an ini file and a zip file.  When I look at properties for the folder, I see that there are 286 items in there.
What should I do to get them back?
Thanks.
Sorry; I failed to mention that I'm using the current version of NVDA.  But the demo of jaws doesn't see the files either.
