Re: Cloning drives

I agree, but of course the original query was for a windows user. I'm not convinced anyone would want to run and install the Linux system and its screenreader merely to clone a drive.

The talking WinPE has programs for this, but I usually do this in Linux, since I think it does a better job.
Linux has a command-line tool built in for this, called DD.
Linux command-line is much like DOS.
If the drive you want to copy is called:
/dev/sda
And the drive you want to copy it to is
/dev/sdc
You would type:
Dd /dev/sda /dev/sdc
If you want to clone a partition into a single file, the command would be:
Dd /dev/sda dev/sdb/myfile.iso
You would not clone a drive onto itself, so you would have to direct it to another drive that is why you might direct it to something like /dev/sdb in that example.
But that is just an example of using the command-line in Linux, it works much like DOS.
But I use the GUI for things like web browsing, and eMail and text editing and manipulating files.

It is but the ones I've used drop into a kind of temporary dos version so
you hear nothing, even errors if you run it.
Some do allow the cloning script to be written in windows and then it runs
in its own Os as neither drive can have a running windows on it during the
process as there is a swap file and other files locked and hence they will
not be faithfully copied unless you exit windows.
I've not tried it lately but it would be nice to know what works for those
with no sight at all.

Re: [SUSPECTED SPAM] Re: [nvda] About Linux

Simone Dal Maso
 

Hello,
using linux without command line is quite a nonsense, and perhaps a bit stupid.
If you want a really friendly operative system with gui, you have 2 choices: Windows, or MacOs.
NVDA *never* will run on linux.
Or perhaps with an emulator called Wine it can run, but it is quite unuseful since there are no windows operative system to read.
Linux has its screen reader that is Orca, but is not on my opinion robust like NVDA.

Re: What will be with Espeak NG?

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

If you, like myself use Windows 7, then espeak is still the default. I think its only a change of preferences at the start if windows 10 is in as the Microsoft voices are supposedly better. I have to say this is debatable depending on what you want to use them for.

I hope that Espeak NG will continue to be built in as for me at least quick and dirty digital voices are much better than nice sounding ones that do not work at speed very well for my ears at any rate.

I would also suggest if its English uk people want then get the add on speech player in Espeak and use it with the old variants as the dodgy for, newsletter and other words have not yet been sorted in the version of ng in nvda it seems. I guess you can download the sapi 5 version of Espeak but I do not like that system as it enables all that is bad about Microsoft's abbreviation expanding system, which to my mind is far too USA centred.

Re: What will be with Espeak NG?

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Marco,

Actually we don't develop eSpeak to begin with.  We use eSpeak NG which has a GitHub repository and is open source, just like NVDA: https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng

We are still including eSpeak NG with NVDA.  We are just changing the default synthesizer when you install it on Windows 10, to the Windows OneCore voices.  From talking with users, and importantly, with people who don't use NVDA (and why), we found that a lot of people "Like NVDA, but the voice is very robotic".  As much as we would encourage people to explore the settings and find a setup that works for them, the truth is, people, particularly when testing something new, will first try the default setup, and if something is too jarring (as eSpeak NG is for some users), they may stop using it and not come back, even though if they were using Windows 10, there are more human sounding voices available on their system.

So, for NVDA 2018.2, we are making Windows OneCore voice the default on Windows 10, but we will still bundle eSpeak with NVDA, and we know many advanced users will switch back to it, and that is fine.  Note if you already have NVDA installed and upgrade to NVDA 2018.2, it won't change what you have setup.

I hope that answers your question, but if you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hmmm you should be able to change the 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.

Hello. I just downloaded and installed the Golden Cursor latest dev

version available on the add-ons site. There is some issue that when you

click "okay", "cancel", or "apply", it throws an error. I restarted NVDA

and everything worked well. Not sure if switching to another panel would

allow me to close the settings properly.

There is a short-cut key to have Firefox remember a password, but I've forgotten what it is at the moment because I now just escape out of those dialog boxes. Thanks.

It doesn't remember it because you aren't telling it to in the menu or activating the button.  When you hear the message, move to the address bar with control l.  the message is probably somewhere around it.  Try tabbing a few times and see if you find something relevant.  If you don't, return to the address bar again with control l and shift tab a few times to see if you find anything relevant. 
 
However, before you do any of that at all, I'm not sure having browsers remember passwords is a good idea.  Others with more technical knowledge will, I hope, comment, but I've seen one or more computer advisors recommend against it as a security risk.

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.

Hi,

 

I need evidence please (a log will do). Also, be sure that you’ve got an NVDA snapshot, otherwise the add-on dev version won’t work properly when it comes to displaying its settings.

Cheers,

Joseph

I'll tell you how you may try to do this which may help you in this and in other similar situations where messages come up.  also, there may be a short cut command to move to the message, but I don't know it.
