Details in subject line would help everyone

ely.r@...
 

Hi All,

Looking for help with subject lines. I hate to be picky, but I monitor multiple lists focused on computer access. I am sure that many others here do the same. It would be very helpful if posters could provide enough information in the subject line to understand what an issue might actually be. Subjects like “Big Problem with *** or Question, or help are just not Helpful in determining if I can help, or if I have the same problem. Something like, “Not able to read choices in Word spell checker” is a clearer advertisement for a post. Catch your reader with your tag line!

Thanks,

Rick

The point is that if you don't have Word, it can't use the Word editor unless a stripped down version is included in the program itself. 
 
Since this problem doesn't exist in earlier versions of NVDA, you can avoid the problem by using an earlier version.  If you don't use any features in the newest version, you can just go back.  If you do use features of the new version, then depending on how important they are to you, you can try using a portable version of NVDA in an older version while working with Outlook.

Re: something strange in outlook

The program uses what it uses.  You can't switch the editor portion of the program.  It isn't something people would generally want to do and it wasn't provided for.  You can try an earlier version of NVDA, which might work around the problem.

It now occurs to me that this began to happen for me when I was running
betas a couple of weeks ago, and this behaviour has crept into the NVDA RC1
build. It is an NVDA bug that is worth reporting. Perhaps the Outlook
message is somehow being modified. This doesn't happen when an alternate
screenreader is tested. Note that you need to navigate past the first line
of the message. Happy to report this if nobody has done so.

I think we have been down these roads already. Without some kind of hands

on, its hard to advise unless somebody else has the exact same issue, which


was why I asked about avast, as I was not aware till the other day how

protective that anti virus is.

It seems that often simple uninstall may well make it seem to be gone but

its often left running routines in a hidden partition unseen by the task

manager which makes deletion of the folder impossible. Also modification of


certain registry entries appears to be impossible also, so if some have

become deregistered, and avast or a similar program is on the machine or has


been re registering them may not work. Indeed on the machine I had like this


any attempt to even compact the registry resulted in windows restarting.





it of course then loaded back the un modified last known good copy.



When you get very rare events such as this one, you really do need somebody


experienced on site.

Its hard to ask the right questions otherwise I find.

This can be especially pertinent if the user has no interest in the under

the hood stuff of computers and hence does not know how to look at some

aspects of what you ask. Not saying this its the case here, but this is

often when tech folk resort to a reformat and re install,we hen its probably


not required. Brian

Also check the audio output device is correct in nvda

I discussed the file type briefly but my main point is that using the context menu will allow you to save files on some sites and not on others.  this is not related to the file type, it's how the site is constructed. 

 

We don't know, but my guess is that, in this case, Internet Explorer is being used and the file opens in Windows Media player, hence the question of how to save from there. 

 

In the context of other browsers, not the archaic Internet Explorer, the file is played in the browser when you press enter on the link.  If you are on a site where save target as or equivalent doesn't work, you need to know that you can use the command control s while the file is playing, and save it while in the browser in that way. 

 

Of course, that presupposes that you are dealing with an actual file that is playing from the site as a file, and not a stream.  The stream plays a little of a file and then refreshes the buffer in the browser or player but the entire file is never available.  Just a little bit ahead of where you are listening.  It can't be saved because it is a stream, not a file playing as a file from the web site.  Since this is called a podcast in the question, the odds are that it is an actual file being played from the web site, not a stream as I am using the word.

Hello Gene,

 

If you  read my message again, I do say, “We don’t know what kind of file it is so can’t be specific”,

It’s worth a try anyway, if the original questioner could say exactly what podcast  is to be downloaded, that would be better.

As you rightly say,that is why you asked questions.

Best Regards, Jim.

That is one way you can save many files.  But it is important to know other ways as well.  Some sites don't support downloading files in that way.  That's why I asked questions such as whether the file opens in Windows media Player.

Hello,

 

Pressing enter on the link will probably open it, if it’s to be downloaded, try the context menu, [key to the left of the right control key on a standard keyboard], you get options including maybe “save as” or “save target as”, this should bring up the normal save as dialogue and the file can be saved to a folder, from there it cvan be opened in a program such as Windows media player.

We don’t know what kindof file it is so can’t be specific, I hope this helps and good luck.

The problem is that we don't know what you are trying to download, and the
instructions for how to download it may be different depending on what it
is.

Show us a URL for the podcast, or at least for a page containing a link to
it, and we can take a look for ourselves to try and help you.

Until you show us the specific thing you want to download, we're just
guessing at the best way to do it, and that's both inefficient and
potentially unhelpful.

Windows 10 App Essentials 18.03A emergency patch released #addonrelease

 

Hi everyone,

 

First, for those who’ve reported issues with Windows 10 App Essentials 18.03: my sincere apologies. I have corrected the root problem (explained below in detail). Due to something beyond my control, notification announcements in newer apps in Windows 10 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) will be restricted to NVDA 2018.1 and later.

 

Because of the regression, the add-on won’t work (update feature won’t work). Thus, please manually install 18.03A via this link:

https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/download/18.03/wintenApps-18.03A.nvda-addon

 

Also, for those using NVDA 2017.4 and happen to use development snapshots for this add-on: you’re also affected by this regression. The current workaround is to manually apply 18.03A first, and NVDA will then check for the emergency patch for today’s development snapshot. Also, if you are using NVDA 2017.4 and add-on dev snapshots, please report this kind of regression ASAP, otherwise those using stable version will go through what they just went through. Lastly, I’m not free from this mess: again, my apologies for this mess in the first place.

 

Technical: NVDA 2017.4 uses older version of comtypes, a dependency used to talk to COM (Component Object Model) routines. Also, it may have been built with older Windows 10 SDK. As a result, UIA notification event and associated routines are not included as part of that release. Thankfully, NVDA 2018.1 does include newer version of the dependency and may have been built with newer Windows 10 SDK release, thus UIA notification announcement (and debugging routines) will work.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

This is a regression (my fault for not doing a more thorough check). An emergency patch (18.03A) will hit the air soon. Because the add-on might not be functional for some, I’ll provide a link to manually download the stable build. An updated announcement will go out at the same time.
