hello, yes it is, very strange.
per haps for other screenreaders but not with nvda.
put the usb connector into the computer and choose inside the menu of nvda for the hims that's the driver for all of the hims displays like smart beetle, or braillesense or what ever.
i know, there are also braille displays they need an installed driver before or when you use a bluetooth connection.
but not with hims if connected with usb.

there is no need to install any driver.
he has to go inside the menu of nvda there choose braille and there for the hims.
that's all!
he has nothing else to do.
i have the same braillesense and it works fine with the newest nvda.
so let he remove the installed driver and restart the computer and retry to connect the display

Re: can no longer save attachments in outlook

Not sure that will work. I have noticed that for no good reason some filenames in most Microsoft mail software get skipped when trying to actually get to them to either view or save them. it even happens in Outlook Express.

It would be interesting to find out whether other attachments show up and save normally.
Not sure if its nvda or the way microsoft make the focus go to the right place.

Hello Rosemarie,

One way to save an attachment is:
Get into the body of the message,
arrow up to the top of the message,
shift tab once or more times until you reach the attachments field,
type control + a to select all the attachments,
hit control + c to copy all the selected attachments,
then open file explorer and go to the place you want to save the formerly attached file and hit control + v to paste the file.

You said that it was uninstalled. That doesn't mean all files were removed. The next question, which has been discussed here before but which I didn't try to remember the answer to, is what files are left when uninstalling. It appears from the cannot overwrite a file message, that at least one file is in use. I don't know why but such questions may help you solve the proboem. Perhaps something wasn't fully uninstalled that should have been and Windows is keeping a file in use, perhaps because a registry entry is still present that tells it to. In short, I suspect that completely removing the program may require dealing with such questions or, perhaps, going into safe mode and removing the extra files.

Re: nvda installation problem

In the latest nvda system, the lib folders are renamed and new files are written to new copies, then the old files deleted. If any of this fails then this error can occur. I noticed it with another piece of software about a week ago. A complete clear out fixed it.


However great care went into the fail safe nature for nvda in this regard, but it might well be a very old version of nvda if then updated to a very new one might throw up errors we have not experienced.

Re: nvda installation problem

Yes indeed, manually deleting some of the files might help, but unless one is happy with doing this, then be careful as nvda also puts files in other places as well as program files(x86)

I have also had issues where if it had been installed it seems that it cannot manage to rename its log file fast enough to allow the new copy to write its log file.

Re: problems

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

Hmm, surely nothing will happen except for the choices in the settings you are focussed on?
It was always the case. You can still alt tab or use the shortcut to desktop and it works fine here, and then the sheets are open again when you alt tab back.
The synth and voice sheets are right next to each other. When you want to change the synth you hit the change button then when happy you can come out and close the changes and tab to voice and then fiddle with the speed etc. You still can exit completely with ok when you are happy.

All that has happened in reality is that all the sheets open and can be chosen from the list without coming out of settings a feature many requested.

First, you move to SAPI 5 in the synthesizer dialog, then activate the ok

I guess a lot of us have been using the new scheme for a long time running from the beta versions and for most people from feedback the new scheme is actually easier to manage. its far more like other software than it was in fact.
Of course you cannot please all of the people all of the time as they say, but this change has been requested for some years to my knowledge. If you could tell us why you think its worse than opening and closing windows every time you need to move between synth and voice I'm sure others might be able to help.

You must have at some time copied the saved settings to login and other secure screens at some point

Not sure how you going to reverse this though

All I can think of is to make sure under nvda general settings that the start nvda at login and windows start are unchecked

And I’m not sure that would work anyway

Subject: [nvda] can no longer save attachments in outlook

 

Hi, everyone,

 

Yesterday someone from the music list I'm on sent me a song I wanted to save. I could no longer save it in the usual way by hitting the context key. I had to use object navigation to save the message and that shouldn't be. What could be going on with outlook 2013?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

hmm, I too have a Braille Sense U2, I installed a driver to get it to work via usb, but I have not used it in a while. I should check it out once I reinstall NVDA on my computer.

hello, yes it is, very strange.
per haps for other screenreaders but not with nvda.
put the usb connector into the computer and choose inside the menu of nvda for the hims that's the driver for all of the hims displays like smart beetle, or braillesense or what ever.
i know, there are also braille displays they need an installed driver before or when you use a bluetooth connection.
but not with hims if connected with usb.

hi, i think, that's the problem he has installed a driver for the braille sense.
there is no need to install any driver.
he has to go inside the menu of nvda there choose braille and there for the hims.
that's all!
he has nothing else to do.
i have the same braillesense and it works fine with the newest nvda.
so let he remove the installed driver and restart the computer and retry to connect the display

 as discribed above.
cheers

I have both JAWS and NVDA installed on several machines and when an update is applied and UAC gets invoked both screen readers read the message to me and once I click on OK which ever screen reader is active goes back to reading all to me.  Does anyone have any idea what is going on or how to get rid of it.  It does not really cause a problem it is just annoying.
 
Thanks,
Danny

Hi,

It is under voice panel (Control+NVDA+V).

I don’t recall what was in settings, but I could not find anything like rate in there.

Obviously there is a setting somewhere, but I feel that the menus as they are now are not intuitive.

What was wrong with the menus the way they were?

It is like Microsoft changing the way things were to be different, which only causes difficulty for folks.

Hi,

Hmmm, does synth settings ring work for this purpose?

Regarding menus: this might be due to new Settings screen where almost all settings are housed under one roof.

Cheers,

I noticed this menu problem too yesterday.

I wanted to slow down the voice for a new user and could not find it anywhere in the menus.

I had to set it to default settings, and that was really not slow enough for her.

I hope it goes back to the way it was.

I am greatful for any help with these items.

I have a new computer running Windows 8.1 and have downloaded NDVA several times and the Windows sapi5 voyce will not showup.  I also can not seem to find it in my windows.

I have also downloaded  2 of the free voices from the NDVA site and properly used the manage apps to install them and they will not appear in the list of synthesizers, as a matter of fact the ESpeak does not appear either.

 

Finally the menus have completely changed from just a week ago, because I had downloaded NDVA for another person and the menus completely different? Any thoughts?  Thanks so much  


Re: problems

Ervin, Glenn
 

Something else, I had forgotten this, when I went into settings, the speech quit talking.

It would echo keystrokes, like windows + M, and the like, but did not speak anything else.

But when I exited settings, NVDA worked again.

This was on a client’s computer with Windows 10.
