Pairing NVDA and HIMS Braille Sense Polaris

Rayn Darren
 

Hi All,

 

I’m trying to pair my new Polaris with NVDA to use as a braille display primarily for purposes of reading computer programming languages.  So far I’ve had no luck at all. It cannot recognize the display and doesn’t seem to have the specific display even in the list of ones to choose. Can anyone help.

 

Thanks,

Rayn

Re: Windows10 safe mode and NVDA.

 

Well I have had ccleaner pull up avast, there is a box which if you read into it will be able ot be unchecked then it doesn't load.

However avast is almost as bad as other malware now since it will load itself and isn't much use.

Actually, with the  patch for sound in safe mode the avastclear does work though it thinks it is not in safe mode it all works fine.

Bloomin Avast is a pest, since ccleaner installers now shove it on without asking though do not fully install it, but its enough to confuse some other software, so I always do the registry patch, run avastclear, let it boot into safe mode then run nvda manually and reliant avastclear and let it go on even though it thinks its not safe mode then.
The problem with programs that claim to remove it in normal mode is the fact from what I could tell that a couple of dlls were still linked after the removal. This causes issues with things like registry checkers and registry rebooters for fixing problems .

Hi all, I have been told that my screen is the wrong way round! I am not sure if it is up side down or what. I have just been told that is like it is on it's side. sorry not a good description but this is all I have to go on.

Re: Problem with Eloquence for windows

Alex Kenny
 

This problem is not caused by Microsoft, but rather the Eloquence licensing system. The software appears to tie the license to the specific version of windows being used and invalidates the license when that version changes.

Hello List. Sky here. I have a problem with eloquence for windows. I upgraded to windows spring update, and it went well, but when I restarted, NVDA came up with SAPI 5 version of Eloquence, and it said, please register this product. When I went to activate the product, I was told that all of my licences had been activated. When I hit the deactivate button, I got an error that says that your not connected to the internet, even though I am connected to the internet. What can I do? I have a difficult time with one core, and I am familiar with Eloquence because I used it in JAWS and Window-Eyes. Any help you could give me would be appreciated! Thanks, Sky.




Re: Problem with Windows One Core voices after update of Windows

What version of NVDA are you running? There was a hot fix to it that addresses this problem. You should have 2018.1.1  If you just have 2018.1, then you need to install this version and you should be good to go.

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

The problem is it won't install if avast has been on the system it seems so they cannot take advantage of that.
is there some way one can get at that hidden bit of registry since windows 7 has been used to stop problems?
My guess is its still got a signature in there somewhere, but going back to the old version might allow a clean uninstall and remove it before a new update attempt.

No way to use nvda, but I understand that Narrator now works in Safe Mode.

Yes i was afraid that might happen. The best course is to go back to the old install of windows, then remove avast using avastclean and then reboot, then try the update again. If that does not work, then I'm out of ideas and it may well be you will need to tell Microsoft about this problem.

I do notice that even when avast is completely removed, for example Belarc says its still installed. There is no sign of it in the registry or any folder or any dll, so where its hiding a signature is probably in the hidden partition on the drive, but its windows fault not to realise it is, in fact a false entry and carry on.

Nope. it's not showing in add or remove programs or anywhere else. My
mom helped to uninstall it in safe mode however, windows says it's
still there.

It should be in programs and features. If it isn't, you can still try
disabling protection and see what happens. To turn off protection, do the
following:
In the system tray, do a right click on the Avast icon.
Up or down arrow in the menu to the shields item.
Press enter.
You will be in a submenu with choices such as disable for ten minutes and
others. I would use the disable forever selection.
Press enter on the selection you want.
A nonspeaking are you sure message comes up. Press the space bar and
shields will be off. You can confirm this by llooking at the Avast icon in
the system tray. It will tell you that your system is unsecured.

You can turn on shields again by pressing enter on the enable shields option
in the shields submenu. It may say disabled but it doesn't matter. It
isn't disabled and pressing enter on it enables the shields again. There is
no are you sure dialog so all you have to do is press enter.
Checking the system tray Avast icon again will say you're system is secured
if enabling occurred.

Well, uninstalling doesn't show up in add and remove programs when I
enter on uninstall. Windows10upgrade however won't skip past the avast
program either. Task manager can't stop the program either.

Or, do you have to remove it at all? You may just be able to turn off
protection when you upgrade. I can tell you how to do that if you don't
know how. I'm skeptical that removal is necessary.

The problem is the uninstaller does not remove the protection that is used to stop people tampering with the registry. this causes programs to often restart the pc suddenly and all sorts of other nasty things. You have to use avastclean to get rid of this. it has to be in safe mode but of course the normal mod to run sound drivers in safe mode patch can help, the killer is i think that you need to have patched it before you installed avast on many machines. Why this should be I'm not totally sure, but some you can get away with it, others not.

My two cents on it: I was able to remove Avast with the use of nvda and Braille display... It requires pressing remove button, which I did using display braille; I did it about four months ago, so I suppose it is still possible.

Avast clean is not accessible, I think.
