Abbie: These may have been just delayed messages. I still believe that changing your password fixed it.

I think it's Firefox. Nowadays, whenever I try to have it remember a particular password, the dialog asking me if I want Firefox to do this keeps coming up, and I keep pressing the button to save the password, and it comes up again. This happens for a while, and then when I just escape out of that dialog, I lose speech altogether and have to re-start Firefox before it will work properly. By the way, it never does remember the password.

this on the messenger site so far with NVDA.
https://www.messenger.comFor some reason, it's not reading the
settings dialog box. I've tried some of the mouse commands but to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas?

NVDA 2018.2: add-on compatibility notices for Enhanced Touch Gestures and others

 

Hi all,

 

The following notice concerns compatibility of some of my add-ons with NVDA 2018.2 (scheduled to hit the air in a few weeks). It also contains Windows 10 compatibility notice for Windows 10 App Essentials add-on:

 

Due to introduction of multi-page NVDA Settings dialog and several additional features in NVDA 2018.2, the following add-ons will no longer support NVDA 2018.1.x the day NVDA 2018.2 ships:

 

  • Enhanced Touch Gestures: the settings dialog (currently known as “Touch Interaction” and is the second one named in preferences menu) will become a panel within NVDA Settings and will be named “Enhanced Touch Gestures). People who’d like to use Enhanced Touch Gestures add-on in earlier NVDA releases should use add-on version 18.04.
  • Golden Cursor: as stated before, Golden Cursor 3.0 will require NVDA 2018.2, with settings dialog for this add-on being incorporated into NVDA Settings as a panel.
  • StationPlaylist Studio: although this add-on will support NVDA 2018.1.1 and earlier for a while, this, too, will require NVDA 2018.2 later this year due to massive add-on settings redesign. Specifically, settings dialog for this add-on will become a multi-category settings interface in the fall.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: Version 18.06.x will require NVDA 2018.2 due to introduction of UIA notification handler in NVDA screen reader. Version 18.06.x is also the last release series to support Windows 10 Version 1703; add-on 18.07 and later will require Fall Creators Update (Version 1709) and later.

 

A development snapshot of Enhanced touch Gestures will be sent to the community for review and testing later this week. This development snapshot will require latest NVDA master and next snapshots to run due to settings redesign.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

You should be able to change your Facebook password, and that will change it for Messenger.

Yes I do, and I realize now they both go together. I may have to delete the Facebook account if I can't change my Messenger password.

To be honest, when ms/ google says you have been hacked, just like
windows flagging things, I don't know if it has or not.

I had the same issue with google sync, an update and reload had to be done.

The program crashed in the middle of signup.

Google then said I was hacked and needed to change my password.

It will also do that if you go to another location then signin from
your home location, sometimes it puts up a security message sometimes not.

Either you don't get it or respond fast enough and boom.

A friend had this with an ms account.

Her system lost power in the middle of a feature windows update.

Nothing worked, eventually she had to reformat her pc, and windows
mobile phone, change her passwords then create another account for
it to work.

Some of that was her isp doing strange things but everything got out
of sync, and then things got confused.

I had the same situation with a business system I was working on,
the encripted drive crashed.

Some backups were made but not everything.

The system was reinstalled on a new box, but again, security was
just crazy.

Eventually with some professional recovery technitions the drives
were recovered, the accounts were updated, but it envolved a lot of
mucking about.

I am more inclined to think if something says your account is hacked
that your account is not in fact compromised its just windows or
your previder telling you you are doing something outside their
strict guidelines.

Re: How do I run a portable copy of NVDA from a USB flash drive

Richard Wells
 

Just insert the USB Flash Drive, determine the drive letter Windows gives it, press WIN-KEY+R, type DriveLetter:\NVDA and it will launch.

Thanks, Marcio, but all my windows in Firefox are maximized. I suppose I could try Chrome, but I doubt that would make much difference. I appreciate the suggestion, anyway.

Hello,
First, sorry for writing in this mail instead of write in the main topic, I lost it.
Secondly and now talking about what's really interesting :)
Try to maximize the Messenger's window with alt+spacebar and X, if I'm not mistaken.
After you did it, go to the top of the page then navigate as on any other page.
Hope it can help you.

Cheers,
