Re: Recommended braille displays for use with NVDA?

Have you considered a Brailliant from Humanware? They used i believe to get their displays from Baum, before they took production in-house.  Their displays are extremely sturdy  and crisp.

Best wishes

You only will have problems if your display have technical problems...

I can't find any company to repair them...

The both windows must be visible at the screen. It doesn’t work if you have all windows maximized. It wouldn’t work either if you were sighted using a mouse. Put both windows beside on the screen and it will work as you described it.

Hi all,

I'm not sure if what I want to do is possible using NVDA but I thought I'd ask.

I've read the mouse functions section in the 2018.1 user guide and have tried routing the mouse to the current object (NVDA+num pad divide), locking the left mouse button on that object (shift+num pad divide), going to another window and then pressing NVDA+num pad divide to route the mouse pointer to that window, and finally pressing shift+num pad divide to release the locked left mouse button and, fingers crosssed, drop the item into that window ... and nothing seems to be happening.

In the user guide it says: Locks the left mouse button down. Press again to release it. To drag the mouse, press this key to lock the left button down and then move the mouse either physically or use one of the other mouse routing commands.

What I want to do is lock the left button on a file in explorer, drag it onto a Python terminal window and then drop the file on that window. There are no objects in that Python terminal window other than the title and the verticle scroll bar.

Grateful for any advice on whether the sequence of my actions is currect, and whether dropping a file in this way is possible. In other similar cases, such as dropping a file into a WordPress media window for uploading a new file, there is also a browse button and I always use that. Without any means of browsing for the file I want to drop in the terminal window I'm a bit stumped.

I just tried what you described and although I'd think it would do as you described it doesn't for me, either.

One thing I did try that seems to work is using copy and paste.  Once I have focus on the file I want to drop in the source window I hit the conventional Windows keyboard shortcut CTRL+C to copy it.   I then navigate to the target window using ALT+TAB then get myself positioned such that I am ready to drop it where it needs to be dropped then hit Paste, CTRL+V, which effectively drops it there.

Try this and see if it works for you.

All Firefox versions are sluggish these days, but the new ones seem to be
far worse in this respect on certain web sites.
One gets the impression it s not going to let you do anything till its
loaded, whereas earlier versions allowed you to do stuff before it hade

You don't need to understand anything on that website.
Its as you describe.

I have downgraded to firefox 52.7.3 esr again.
that fixes it.
but firefox will soon upgrade their esr to 60 so i guess that needs to be fixed before.

Re: NVDA problem after Windows log-in

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

I think there are two issues here. My one \i am pretty certain is due to two copies of nvda trying to be in at the same time, since one can force a complete cure by a complete restart of windows. I also note that the times it seems to happen most is after I've run goldwave so it does make one wonder if some flag somewhere stops nvda unloading correctly.

No I've not raised this anywhere as its so fickle and goes back a long time as I suggested. no sign of it today yet.
The win 10 one does make me wonder about add ons, particularly anything affecting UI stuff as this has a tendency to hang at the best of times.

Hi Chris,

I wonder if you (and Brian?) and anyone else having this issue could try:

1) Disabling any addons you are using, and see if the issue persists
(disable rather than simply restarting with addons disabled just in case it
is the addon loading on Windows startup that is causing the problem).

If so, which addons are you using, and are they the latest versions of
those addons?

2) Can you pinpoint anything that might have happened around the time the
issue first appeared? Updating Wndows, NVDA, installing or uninstalling
any software?

3) could you send me offlist a copy of your full log (I think Brian
attached a log to his message which didn't come through to the group).

And finally, has anyone documented the issue on GitHub yet?

Regards

Quentin.

Hi

I have a long standing issue over several NVDA versions where after
entering my Windows password, NVDA fires up but only appears to be
partially loaded. I get voice output as I use windows commands to move
around. NVDA+n doesn’t work, so I accessed the log file using the system
tray icon but I could not move around in the log file using arrow keys. I
loaded Outlook 2007, opened a message then tried to read the message body
using NVDA+DownArrow but just a number was read out and when I repeated the
command, the number increased by 5 each time. I saved the log file, used
Ctrl+alt+n to reload NVDA and all began working normally. This happens all
the time and on many occasions after reloading NVDA, there are 2 references
to NVDA in the system tray overflow area. The log file below shows a
Watchdog_watcher warning of ‘Core frozen in stack’. Can anyone shed any

Dragging and Dropping with NVDA

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

I'm not sure if what I want to do is possible using NVDA but I thought I'd ask.

I've read the mouse functions section in the 2018.1 user guide and have tried routing the mouse to the current object (NVDA+num pad divide), locking the left mouse button on that object (shift+num pad divide), going to another window and then pressing NVDA+num pad divide to route the mouse pointer to that window, and finally pressing shift+num pad divide to release the locked left mouse button and, fingers crosssed, drop the item into that window ... and nothing seems to be happening.

In the user guide it says: Locks the left mouse button down. Press again to release it. To drag the mouse, press this key to lock the left button down and then move the mouse either physically or use one of the other mouse routing commands.

What I want to do is lock the left button on a file in explorer, drag it onto a Python terminal window and then drop the file on that window. There are no objects in that Python terminal window other than the title and the verticle scroll bar.

Grateful for any advice on whether the sequence of my actions is currect, and whether dropping a file in this way is possible. In other similar cases, such as dropping a file into a WordPress media window for uploading a new file, there is also a browse button and I always use that. Without any means of browsing for the file I want to drop in the terminal window I'm a bit stumped.

Giles

Which software are you talking about?
