Also, Brice, Make sure you've got your keyboard set to the proper
layout. I've noticed that sometimes if you've got a desktop layout but
you want your capslock key to be used as an NVDA key, you've gotta go
in & check it, as it's unchecked by default. But do try running
w/addons disabled--& always restart your system after an update just
to ensure everything got truly installed.

You don't say what version of Windows you're running, & that may or
may not be helpful, but it is really information that should be
included in any support request.

Re: a question about vocalizer

One cool thing about Tiflotecnia Vocalizer Automotive, if you use
compact voice variant, pitch change does work for Caps and general pitch
changing.

Ever since the latest update to NVDA, messages in Thunderbird won't read, selecting text, files and folders and the copy or cut command won't work. NVDA key q don't work, so I have to hold down the control key alt key and hit n twice rapidly.  How would I get a copy of the log file if this is happening every time I boot my system? Thanks.

Re: nvda and windows explorer

Try using the read status line command.  Using the desktop layout, it is NVDA key end.  I don't know if Windows 10 has a status line in File Explorer.  My recollection is that this command works in Windows 7 and I'm sure it does in XP.  Try it in various contexts when you want information.

Well that is one way to do it.
The issue is it searches for and clears everything on all drives and that may not be necessary unless your system and your accounts are on different drives.

I have a win7 system like this.

However, the easiest way to handle that is to.

1.  type disk in search.

right click disk cleanup and run as admin.

If you have 2 drives, you may find the second drive may not have that much on it.

On the os drive, the most important things that will take space are.

1.  windows update and device drivers especially for display drivers you have installed.

My amd has frequent updates for its drivers.

2.  windows installations.

Only do that if you are happy with your build though and want to kill them.

They will kill themselves within a 10 day period.

At least that was what it was when I last looked into that.

Saying that, if you have one of those dinkey tablets with little space, you will probably want to immediately delete that so you can put everything back.

I honestly don't know how people can use 16-32-64gb windows tablets.

a 128gb is minimal in my book but people do use them somehow and I have no idea how.

Hi

press the windows key and when the search box comes up type in disk it will come up with a result called disk cleanup/ Press the enter key on it. It will then come to another screen there you can pick your drive to do it to it is a combo box it will usually default to c: drive. You can use the down arrow key to go to another if you want to. What ever one you pick say c: drive you will then need to tab to ok button then press the enter key. It will then calculate how much can be cleaned up.

It will give you a list of areas it can clean up and say those areas. There is a check box next to each one. You can arrow down the list and use the space bar to check the box.

Down towards the bottom of the list you will then need to tab as the down arrow key will not take you any further.. If you tab once it will land on a system files button I think it was called. Press the enter key and repeate the process like before except this for will be for system files. Then at the bottom of the list you have selected all the ones you want removed you will then need to tab to the ok button then press the enter key.

It will then give you a message just say yes to it and then it will clean it up all for you.

Hope it helps.

Do not worry it will not remove any files only the ones you picked not needed.

hello.
and thanks for suggestions of everyone that helped us to make pot

the last version of pot player is 200204.
today i downloaded and installed it on my windows xp.
both bringing preferences by f5 and using context menu with

Hi,

One of my computer updated potplayer to 1.7.21126

and came across the following issues with nvda.


1. pressing application key / right click with mouse cannot access the
context menu


2. pressing f5 cannot access the preferences


3. the installer of the latest version added a adware, and if it is on
that step, pressing tab with nvda cannot access the buttons.


I found it very frustrated, cause my work require potplayer's function.


Anyone would know any media player has a function to press hotkey and
copy the current play position to clipboard?


Thanks,

William
