Re: NVDA 2018.3 beta 3 hangs after closing System Information application

In this case, pressing Alt+tab to try to switch to any of the open windows didn't work for me. I can't remember what else I tried.

I'll set aside some time and attempt to reproduce.

I'm not sure this is a problem. It is very common, when I close a program
that I am not actually in any program. I may hear something when I read the
title bar suchh as the name of the program I was just in or some related
name. If I go to the desktop, everything is as it should be and if I alt
tab around, everything is normal with no window open that shouldn't be.
This is with Windows XP. I use Windows 7 but not with enough use or variety
of use to say if this happens in that version.

Is the original problem as I described or is it that NVDA stops speaking no
matter what you do and you must close and run it again?

Just tried to duplicate this. Indeed after closing the system information
with alt f4 it seems that NVDA goes silent. after the alt f4 is pressed
Nvda says unknown. Sighted help says I am back to the desktop and nothing
is shown besides my normal desktop. However if you hit windows key m
speech returns. Seems that something is open that is minimized by windows
key m.

Do you have any (other) addons installed, and if so, have you tried

And finally, just to check, does this happen immediately after updating
either NVDA or Windows, and if so, does it persist after rebooting the
computer?


If you also could send me a copy of your full log, ideally at Debug level,
I can have a look as well.

Re: can't watch a DVD

 

Never have got the hang of it but I don't really watch dvds though I do have a bundle some which I can not extract due to encription.

I have brought dvd/ hard disk recorders for the home tv which have been hacked for all regions.

Technically its alegal but if you ask your local store to unlock the thing you buy, they do it, they don't tell you where and what they get but there is a way to download something and put it on to a dvd, that thing will then override the firmware in the recorder with hacked firmware that allows this, I do think that these days since they advertise modified recorders and paralel imported disks that this is not as bad as it once was but when I origionally got my recorders 5 years back it was technically cracking but about to change.

Re: VLC media player

 

Thats a point, is it pal or ntsc.

Most europian stuff is in pal, ntsc is used by some asian places but its still used.

vlc 3.04 can be downloaded from vlc's own website and it does work.

I have it on win7 and 10, there is an app for win10 if you want to go that way but I have not tried it.

Re: VLC media player

Gene
 

Since the DVD is in an unusual format, you probably didn't see any options in the open with dialog because nothing on the system supports that file type.  You won't see open with options for an unregistered file type.  In such a case, you can try playing the file directly within a program but it probably won't play. But you can try in case something went wrong and it can play the file even if it isn't registered because of some error or incompatibility. In other words, it may play the file anyway.  
Since you have VLC player installed, you can try another player, but you might as well use VLC Player for this DVD.  Now that you have installed VLC Player, if it can play that file type, you should see an open with menu and VLC player as a choice, perhaps the only choice.  If you don't, try playing the file from within the player.  You should see an open with option for a registered file type, but just in case something didn't register properly or there is some other problem preventing you seeing the option in the open with menu, try playing the file from within the program.
 
Those who use the player can tell you how to do this if you need to know.  I have almost never used it.

The one from Brian Smart has both the basic and the mega, the basic I believe is 32 bit.

If you download the one from the “files” page that I am unable to access from work, they have both 32 and 64 bit for 7 & 10.

Brian Smart’s version is running Eloquence, and the Files page runs eSpeak.

There are partitioning tools, password tools, and more.

The one from Brian Smart includes the mega and the basic and some installation software for the ISO images, maybe 3 or 4 GB there, and the Files page has all versions individually available, and probably a bit over a gig each.  Those are set up with executable installers.

I opened the .EXE archive and copied out the ISO image, because I burn them to USB and use a different tool for that.

I don't know anything about the tools.  But do you have to be running the environment to run the tools or can you run them on your machine without the environment running?  I have no idea what the tools are or if the person will find them of use, but the question was whether the environment can be used to install XP.  How long does it take to download the environment with a reasonable download speed and learn what is necessary to try running it?  I see no reason to believe this is a 32 bit environment since it is used to install 64 bit Windows 7. 

 

I have no objection to people learning about the tools.  If you explain something about them, some people may be interested and want to try them.  But I very much doubt the environment can be used as the person wishes.  I don't even think it will run at all.

Gene,

You have apparently never used WinPE.

It is not a waste of time to become familiar with WinPE.

That ISO comes with tools that can be used on XP, and heck, you can get on-line with it.

If it is on a USB drive, instead of a DVD, you can install programs to it.

So it almost a full version of Windows 7.

But the person is already using XP.  she wants to learn how to use the environment to install XP. 

 

People are free to waste time however they choose but this environment will not allow you to install Windows XP and it is probably a 64 bit environment.  Before downloading it and learning whatever you need to learn to even try to run it, such things should be considered to avoid a waste of time and effort.

It would not hurt to try, you would know immediately if it won’t work.

I wouldn’t get on-line with XP, but sometimes you need XP for other things, like Microsoft Mobility center, or whatever it was called in XP.

If you have a legacy device, like a Trekker on a PDA, you cannot reinstall the firmware in the Microsoft Mobility Center because it won’t let you.

And if someone is happy with XP and is not getting on-line, that is a valid reason for using it.

It won't work.  How can you install XP in a Win7 environment?  Windows XP is archaic.  You can do what you can do with it.  You will be able to do increasingly less over time.

 

And you would very likely have to run a Windows 7 32 bit environment because the machine being used is very likely a 32 bit machine.

I haven't tried the Windows 7 WinPE to install XP, but I'd give it a try.
The worse that could happen is that it will tell you that this installer does not support the operating system.
But I am guessing that it is backward compatible.
To use it, you burn the WinPE ISO to a DVD and boot up to it, and pull out the DVD and put in your Windows install DVD and run the setup.exe file on the install disk.

Just download version 3. So and so, and it will work with windows 10

It does amazing things, but it plays all kinds of media, and there are key commands like space bar, plays and pauses, Alt+right and left arrow, forwards and rewinds 30 seconds,

Just right and left arrow forwards and rewinds a few seconds, and so on. It has very easy to follow menus just like on older programs.

I just love it!

Re: can't watch a DVD

Gene
 

I don't know if there is something about this DVD that is different than usual.  I don't know how the newest media player may differ from other versions.  So I won't describe how to play the DVD from within the program.  I'll let someone else do so.  You are using Windows 10.  So instructions should be given for that version of the player.  But any program you can use to open or play any file by pressing enter on the file name in file explorer can be used to open the file directly.  You can open a Word file by opening Word, then using the open dialog in Word to open the file.  You can open a file you can play in Media Player in media Player by opening Media Player, and using the open dialog in the program.  If you usuallly play DVDs in Media Player and you can't play that DVD in the usual way, then the question is why.  You can try to play it directly in the player, you can also download and try VLC Media Player and see what happens. 
 
At this point, we don't know what is causing the problem.  So you can experiment.

I use VLC media player most of the time.

Although I’m not sure the “open with” method actually works in this case. I will have to test it. I usually access through the media menu in VLC.

 

Try Media Player first I suppose, since you probably already have that. I never use that programme but I admit VLC can present a bit of a challenge for first-time users.

Hi, everyone,

 

I know I have a CD DVD drive on this computer but I can't watch a documentary my sister gave me for my birthday. Is there something I might not be doing right? I don't want to have to tell my sister that I can't watch the documentry. It's supposed to be a really good documentary about the life of Janis Joplin.

 

Thanks for any help you can give in advance.

Hi Rosemarie!

I use the VLC media player with Windows 10 as my main video and audio player!

Just download version 3. So and so, and it will work with windows 10

It does amazing things, but it plays all kinds of media, and there are key commands like space bar, plays and pauses, Alt+right and left arrow, forwards and rewinds 30 seconds,

Just right and left arrow forwards and rewinds a few seconds, and so on. It has very easy to follow menus just like on older programs.

I just love it!

Hi, everyone,

 

I just looked at the site for VLC media player but it doesn't show a version for windows 10. Is there something else I can use to watch this movie? I just had my sighted nephew go on the computer with team viewer and he said that the DVD is in a weird format. It's really too bad that I can't watch the movie now.

It's not region locked that I know of. Now I'll have to tell my sister that
I'm very embarrassed. She was hoping I'd be able to enjoy the documentary
but I'll have to fess up and tell her the truth. I was hoping I could watch
the movie too but no go. I don't want to get a third-party program just for
that.

Well if its region locked you will have to use vlc to handle it or specially
modified dvd players.

You should be able to play the thing with windows media player, however I
have brought dvd audio extracter and while that can't always get the stuff
off especially if its fully encripted it can crack most dvds its
40 bucks though.

What players are on your machine?  You can play the DVD from the program, if the program you are using can play it.
