Subject: [nvda] Sleep mode resolved

Hello friends,
This is to inform all that i finally got the sleep issue fixed,
I just made a new keyboard command from
Nvda shift z to nvda control a
So now, pressing nvda control a will put nvda to sleep for a specific app/software
And Thank you so much to all who helped
I figure there may be a keyboard hardware issue blocking me from executing the command,
Cheers,

Re: I'm dissappointed

mk360
 

But is a old feature. Reading the "whats new" file it was introduced in NVDA 2013.3. Personally, I awaited for that feature for many time (as I comented in other mail, I started to use NVDA at about 0.5) and I used it on the snapshots first... I never understood why NVDA has it disabled by default, but is one think that I enable first when I install NVDA.


Regards,

mk.

Re: I'm dissappointed

It is superficial reading or similar ("permitir lectura superficial" in spanish). If you enable that setting, you can press down arrow or up arrow when you're reading with say all, also if you use commands lyke control down arrow or up arrow you can move by paragraph.

Hi,
All the foundations are here. The question then becomes, "who will do it". That's ultimately what will drive NVDA's development in majority of cases.

Exactly correct. This feature is present in both window eyes and jaws. I hope it comes to NVDA very soon. It’s been around for a long time.

Hi
I concur. I firmly believe that NVDA can do most, if not all,
the things more expensive programs can do. With some very rare
exceptions. There are still some apps that require jfw with
specific scripts to be usable, but as time goes on those apps
will dwindle until there are none left. But for 99 percent of
people, NVDA can work for them, either alone or in combination
with narrator, which has gotten quite good. I don’t really set
much store by such presentations, as the few I’ve bothered to
listen to gloss over the free options as if they’re not there,
are not worth mentioning or aren’t good enough. This applies to
NVDA as well as open source operating systems like Linux. I have
not listened to the presentation people are talking about, so I
don’t want to ruffle any feathers, but as a rule I don’t listen
to them. They tend to unilaterally insist that only the paid
apps are worth using. Except for the NVDA podcasts. Those are
great, although I don’t follow those either. I’m just a user. I
use NVDA on a daily basis and have found very little that it
can’t do. If it can’t navigate an app by the usual methods, tab,
shift tab, arrows, then it can by either touch, if you have a
touch screen or object navigation.Even when I was using Linux
full time I would keep up with NVDA’s progress, and NVDA is what
eventually brought me back to using windows again.

I think that NVDA is just as good or better than any other screen

is open

Re: I'm dissappointed

 

Hi,
Hmmm, it is a recent addition (not long ago I believe). I think not a lot of people know that NVDA does have alternate say all like what JAWS has now, and I gave numerous demos in the past.

Joseph

Exactly correct. This feature is present in both window eyes and jaws. I hope it comes to NVDA very soon. It’s been around for a long time.

I concur. I firmly believe that NVDA can do most, if not all,
the things more expensive programs can do. With some very rare
exceptions. There are still some apps that require jfw with
specific scripts to be usable, but as time goes on those apps
will dwindle until there are none left. But for 99 percent of
people, NVDA can work for them, either alone or in combination
with narrator, which has gotten quite good. I don’t really set
much store by such presentations, as the few I’ve bothered to
listen to gloss over the free options as if they’re not there,
are not worth mentioning or aren’t good enough. This applies to
NVDA as well as open source operating systems like Linux. I have
not listened to the presentation people are talking about, so I
don’t want to ruffle any feathers, but as a rule I don’t listen
to them. They tend to unilaterally insist that only the paid
apps are worth using. Except for the NVDA podcasts. Those are
great, although I don’t follow those either. I’m just a user. I
use NVDA on a daily basis and have found very little that it
can’t do. If it can’t navigate an app by the usual methods, tab,
shift tab, arrows, then it can by either touch, if you have a
touch screen or object navigation.Even when I was using Linux
full time I would keep up with NVDA’s progress, and NVDA is what
eventually brought me back to using windows again.

Sounds like NVDA has encountered a major problem when trying to load something at startup. The thing is, we need your NVDA log output to determine what's up, and one way to get it is:
1. Open Run dialog (Windows+R).
2. Type "%temp%" (without quotes and exactly as shown) and press Enter.
3. Look for a file named "nvda.log" or "nvdaold.log".

Every time I try to start up NVDA, I get a airer.

I've uninstalled/ reinstalled, but I still get the same thing.

Even when windows starts up, the sound plays, but nvda still gives and airer.

Narrator reads, airer nvda.exe ok.

I get nothing about checking the nvda log.
