Have you tried setting NVDA back to factory defaults?

Hi good people:
I sent this mail some minutes ago, but I don't know what went wrong, I was till typing when it accidentally got sent, even without activating the send button.
I am still having problems with NVDA still responding too slowly when I am accessing the internet.
I thought it was a problem with the synthesizer, but I have changed the synthesizer, but the problem has continued. Although other probems with the old synthesizer have now been taken care of by the new one. But this problem of slow internet access is still a problem.
I have the demo copy of JAWS installed on my computer, and it works accurately on all browsers. But NVDA does not.
I have the latest update of the windows operating system, I use Windows 7-32Bit.
Does anyone understand what the problem might be?
Hope to read a response.
From Ibrahim.

Never shut down a computer when it's doing updates. You said it was talking too long but it's telling you the precentages of what's going on. Remember that in the future.

Also, as a precautionary note to everyone here, you all should download and
burn a copy of WinPE to keep in your computer drawer for such occasions.
When you boot up to a Talking WinPE, it's just like booting into another
computer with NVDA talking, and your C drive is there in computer for you to
open and copy files from, as well as do repairs, or even a virus check of a
drive that is not currently in use, which is the best way to find computer
viruses, because they are not hiding in memory.

Sorry to hear about your issue, I do agree that you will have to start from
scratch again and retrieving your files will be quite the task which should
be left to a technician. For future reference or for anybody else. If you
have a smart phone and can download and use the Seeing AI app by Microsoft
it will read out what is displayed on your screen if you don't have screen
reader output. I know this doesn't help you now but for the future. Take
your PC to a qualified shop to see what they can do to keep your files and
restore your OS. Good luck.

feedback and loving the next snapshot

David Mehler
 

Hello,

I think the subject says it.

I just tried an install portable of the next NVDA snapshot! I love it!

First the positive, the new control panel layout, that is great! That
to me is going to be my most favorite feature of the next release (I'm
falling over my words).

I love the new control panel, I am also liking the integration of
win10 OCR, one thing though question with older windows versions will
the OCR addon need to be used?

I love the play sounds when autosuggestions appear option, I was
noticing it in I think 2017.4 but just found the setting, love it! I
realize it's minor but it's quite nice.

Before I get in to my comment/potential slight negative I've got a
question. I'm running win10 1709 with this latest next snapshot. What
synthesizers are bundled with it? I ask because I heard list talk
about a new Espeak-NG, if it's here I am really not hearing the
difference. Is there builtin support for SAPI 4, SAPI5, Microsoft
Speech platform, and windows 1 core voices or is that because i'm
running it on 10? If they are integrated I like that, but I am
noticing a slight sluggishness with the windows 1 core voices, I'm
using David and I had to max his voice rate out and even then there's
a slight sluggishness. It's just a perception.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
Dave.


Re: New windows update failed please help

Yes, you can use the Universal USB installer, and you select the Windows installer for what you are installing, it is not called WinPe on the list of operating systems.

You can get that at:

Re: New windows update failed please help

Ervin, Glenn
 

One place to get it is:
https://blog.bryansmart.com/talking-windows-7-pre-installation-environment/
This one is the Windows 7 version, and you can still do quite a bit to repair and copy from a Windows 10 installation.
There are Windows 10 copies available, but I can only access that page from home, my work network does not allow me to access that site, or even to send the URLs.
So if you want a 10 version, someone here will likely post that for me.

Hi Chris and all,

I am running win 10 pro. Once in a while it says it is downloadingand
installing updates.
It is still at 1709.
Should I care or not. I think win 10 is at 1803.
Well, I care a little but not enough to take any rash actions..

Hi Angela
Windows updates are applied automatically if you're on a Home version of
Windows 10. I think the Pro editions have some limited control but I don't
know to what level this is. Essentially I just leave it to sort itself out.

Cheers
Chris

Hi,

The question is all in the subject line: i don't seem to be able to find
them because the location seems to be different from Win 7.

In other words: where are updates located? Where do I have to go in
order to install them? And is there a way to check for updates
automatically and have a notification when they are ready?

Thank you so much.

It’s a perfectly fine way of using Windows. I use the search box and the run command with almost equal frequency. I almost never use the menus anymore. My brain has pretty much defaulted to the standard of giving a path/directory structure when someone asks where something is in Windows, which is not necessarily how they think as they often use the menus. The thing is, those can be changed; programs can be moved around in different groups and such without actually changing their locations on the drive, so telling someone where to find a particular application using Windows menus is not necessarily going to be totally useful.

the search option is my best friend. LOL! I couldn't tell you where a lot of things are in windows 10 and I've had it for nearly a year now, but I do--most of the time--find everything I want with the search option. I probably should learn my way around, but it's just so easy to do a search and find what I want that way. the other day, someone was recommending that I go and look at my privacy settings because that's what she does after doing a major windows update, and I found them by doing the search. I love it, but I can also see where some might not like it as well because when I do the search for, say, Windows update, sometimes I have to keep arrowing and the check for updates option sort of hides on me. I eventually do see it, though.

I don't know which is easier in Windows 10, using methods like that described by the other person or this method.

I tried this method, but it did not seem to work well... So, I decided
to ask and the suggested procedure of using windows key+ i and going to
updates,   worked good.

Thanks anyway for the reply, maybe it was not me being able to make it
work using search in the start menu.

Re: New windows update failed please help

juan gonzalez <jgonzalezh614@...>
 

Sorry to hear about your issue, I do agree that you will have to start from scratch again and retrieving your files will be quite the task which should be left to a technician. For future reference or for anybody else. If you have a smart phone and can download and use the Seeing AI app by Microsoft it will read out what is displayed on your screen if you don't have screen reader output. I know this doesn't help you now but for the future. Take your PC to a qualified shop to see what they can do to keep your files and restore your OS. Good luck.

That was the wrong thing to do. When narrator tells you not to shut down the computer it means exactly that. Now you will need to reformat the hard drive.

Hi

First of all, I tried the latest next snapshot. I really like the new NvDA settings center dialog. This is really gunna be a big hit when it comes out for 2018.2!

Second, the windows10 april 2018 update went good for me. NVDA and the latest win 10 apps essentials addon works quite well/

And third. If you have not done so already, I recommend signing into windows10 using a pin rather than a password. It makes the whole sign in process much easier whether it’s a laptop or tablet, signing in for me using a pin is lots easier. And I have a num pad on the right of my keyboard, so I can just turn on numLock, put in my numerical pin, and after I put the last digit, it just signs me in.
