Wish that rezilio sync were accessible for mac os, but the author does not want to do this even though he nows that we have isues. If the interface were accessible wiht chrome I would use it but sadly I don’ think it will be.

No need to rebuild databases, remove indexes. That just hurts more than helps in long term.

The only thing I do is remove the .zip and .log files in the appdata folder.

However right now I need to rebuild my entire sync database.

I'd leave syncing completely and if it were not for ultrabit I'd do just that.

reality is though that because I am going to be replacing this box sometimes this year and just want to keep it going, the easiest way out of this, is to delete my sync profile, uninstall resilio sync and leave it at that.

I will retry today but if it doesn't work, I am going to probably temperarily stop syncing my files at least for now.

I think Windows 7 goes end of life in 2020 though, meaning you won't get security updates. That is not a viable option. Try a Google search for what the new toy on the market is. Google Windows Media Center replacement.

Sorry this does not exist in WIN 10. I suggest a simple HD antenna on a good ole HD TV. I know there is a piece of Software called Chris TV, but don’t know if it works with NVDA or how it works in general. Do a web search on said software.

Re: nvda and resilio sync

This is way way way way and about 10 more ways overcomplicating your case.


1. firefox, open your sync interface.

2. FInd folder you want removed. Hit capslock shift m on it.

3. BOttom of the screen with control end, you'll find a remove link. Click it.


All done.

No need to rebuild databases, remove indexes. That just hurts more than helps in long term.

The only thing I do is remove the .zip and .log files in the appdata folder.

Re: adding a regular expression dictionary entry

 

Giles,

          For the record, if the line of periods is really a line of periods with no intervening spaces in it, Mr. Tew's suggestion for the regular expression is safer.  It requires that the string begin with four successive periods, followed by any number of additional periods.  If you have a correctly formed elipsis it will not match his regular expression, but it will match the one I gave.

          This becomes more than a bit of a trick because you're trying to capture something that might be formatted any of several ways depending on the publisher, but you want to avoid snagging an elipsis in regular text when they occur.

          If there's any possibility of spaces intentionally being intermixed with the periods, and you want to be sure that there is a minimum of a series of four, my original regular expression could be modified to:   /(\.+\s|\.*){4,}/g

thanks for those suggestions, they work a treat! :)


Re: adding a regular expression dictionary entry

I suggest the following:

\.\.\.\.\.*

and the matching expression be one space.

This will delete any group of four or more periods but leave elipses alone.

some questions about NVDA

abdul muhamin
 

Hi all. Here are some questions I want to ask

  1. Can we expect flexible web with NVDA in future?
  2. What about the screen curtain addon for NVDA?
  3. As you all know, Narrator has an image description feature, why we doesn’t have this important feature in NVDA?
  4. In the early updates of win10. When the win10 OCR implemented on NVDA. It recognize almost everything, for example, the photos in photos app, even I used it for reading video games menu. But now, its very laggy. And doesn’t recognize as it was before. Why is that?
  5. In Microsoft office 2013 or 2016, the NVDA has so many delays, while reading, writing, and while reading the ribbon menus, why?
  6. In the modern browsers like the Firefox quantum, solving captcha images is the main issue for many vi people. Can we expect a feature in NVDA for it
  7. Last question, I’m using Microsoft mail app. And I’ve created a sepret profile for it. Sometimes after reading or replying to a mail. When I press windows plus m to move to the desktop. The NVDA stops reading anything. And it force me to restart the NVDA, why?

I hope all of the above mentioned problems will be fixed in the

Future!

Keep the NVDA alive!

Thanks.
