Re: I think NVDA has a memory leak or something

 

Giles,

           Sorry.  The 1903 to 1909 feature update changed the build number from 18362 to 18363, respectively, which is an unusually small jump.  As soon as I see "1836" as the first four digits of build I think 1909 these days.   Usually the build numbers jump quite a bit further on feature updates, which makes it easier to remember which major build number and Windows 10 version number go together.

            In any case, anyone still on 1903 should force an update to 1909 at this point.  Microsoft cleared it for all machines a month or two ago, and if a machine hasn't self-updated to it by now that suggests some sort of hitch in the gitty-up of Windows Update.   Step-by-step:

Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

               It helps if everything is as up to date as it can be when attempting diagnostics.

No, Brian, I do not mean 1909! I copied the information from NVDA's speech viewer which was reporting the info from the winver app. I have just double checked it and it is still saying version 1903.

Re: NVDA ebooks: Is there one for Access?

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi Quentin,

I'd actually be quite interested in a guide to using Access with NVDA. I've just applied for a job that involves a lot of data analysis ... something I used to do with Access in my sighted days.

When I lived in America I worked at a call centre run by Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Rochester, NY, and they used Access to log calls. I was using JAWS then because that was what was installed, but an NVDA guide would be very helpful :)

Hi,

 

If I click continue, it says it has actually saved but it doesn’t seem to change the settings on the logon screen.

Microsoft Windows 10 latest build and latest build of NVDA.

The only other thing I can think to try is press NVDA+N then T for tools, then select and go through "COM Registration fixing tool".

Has anyone else run into trouble using control+shift+V to paste copied

That's why full containment has been applied here.

Teh disease is not the most serous we know, but it 's very contageous, and our National Health Services risks collapsing if too many people get ill at the same time...


Ok. This is OT, so I won't continue. But it's a big thing at the momtnt, and it's going to affect all of us, one way or another, even if we don't get the virus.

Work, shopping, schools... Every aspect of our social life is affected...


Take care, and keep safe!

Hello all,

First, as Coronavirus is gripping the world, please wash your hands, heed travel advisories, and check and double-check information floating around the internet.

Add-on Updater 20.03 is on its way – this important (and mandatory) add-on release will show up for all NVDA users within the next 24 hours. Changes include:

* NVDA 2019.3 or later is required.
* NVDA itself will check compatibility range, not the add-on.

As I announced a few weeks ago, with Add-on Updater 20.03, all my add-ons I’m currently maintaining have graduated to Python 3 – all my add-ons will now require NVDA 2019.3 or later. As such, once Add-on Updater 20.03 shows up, old Python 2 versions of my add-ons will be removed from community add-ons website.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Ollie,

We don't have one for Access I'm afraid.  I'm working on one for PowerPoint at this stage.  Once that's complete, I'm not sure what topic we'll tackle next, but of course if there is interest in Access, we wouldn't rule it out.  Anecdotally, I've only been asked about Access a few times in recent years so it's not something everyone uses as much as they used to.

If you've got specific things you are having trouble with in Access do let us know and I or someone can have a look into it of course.

Kind regards
Quentin.

Hello all,


Years ago I bought an ebook to learn to use NVDA with Word.


Is there anything like it for Access?


If not, is there any other material to learn how to use Access
with nVDA?


Many thanks in advance.

Ciao,

Ollie

Hmmm but for now we have this chunk of problem.

Stats say 2 years, and all we can do is stay away from the hotspots.

China may be on the mend so maybe in a month or 2 we can restart the echonomy, reguardless of this virus, virus or now we will need to restart trading unless we want to drop to the stoneage.

I am sure all the greenies and weed smokers would be happy if we did but not me.

Over that there is little we can do but wait for a vaxine or it to burn out and it may but a lot is unknown.

Meanwhile travel and insurance do not go hand in hand and I may have to defer my holiday to hawaii maybe.

Its just possible that when returning from a holiday I may be in quarenteen at my house for a couple weeks and while at least I can continue to work and while we can prepair for it somewhat.

Being stuck somewhere paying a large sum of cash to stay there or stuck in the middle or stuck in some government phasility somewhere back home or in between is not what I would call a picknick at all.

My aunt is going to india for 2 weeks and while its not hit there yet who knows.

She is ill prepaired if she gets stuck back home and who knows..

I am seriously thinking about simply taking local trips and forgetting about travel completely at least for this year because of this uncertain virus.

Its causing a lot of problems, not to mention the pannic.

Right now the environment is secondary at least for the moment.

Not to mention the us and new zealand are now election years its just going to make it a lot more difficult.

I do agree this virus while a small concern is not as big as it could be right now and may not get much worse but its generating as much drama as the christchurch earthquake and terror attacks would if they happened all atonce and more.

Maybe if we added the srilankon tsunami as well, and us losing cricket and rugby in the same day and maybe one of the local volcanoes blowing up maybe that would be the right analogy.

Except the majority of us are still alive except we are expecting the zombies to rize and its just stupid.

What needs to happen, is for china to clear enough for the world to restart business, singapore has contained things and so the trade hub looks free.

China is on the way to containment, europe and the east are a concern of course but with the east fighting amongst itself it could be lost.

Europe well who knows.

No one is launching nukes at eachother yet but its coming.

We will eventually run out of stuff not just small stuff but big stuff.

No one is blaming anyone yet but they will unless things start up again and soon.

Everyone is being optomistic but some drugs are running out and while there are a lot of stockpiles of somethings we will start running out sooner or later.

Not to mention that half the country has hit a droubt and parts are flodded and we are not in good shape really without imports.

Taking this into account, the real lethal rate might very likely be way be below 5% according to e.g. the Robert-Koch institute, a leading center in epidemiology. It for sure is very sad for those who do die, but it also means that 95% or more survive an infection.

So I think we are pretty far from the danger to  wipe out humanity with it.  Actually, the way we treat / or rather destroy / our environment is a much bigger real threat in this respect. But is is also slower, and hence easily to ignore for the moment.


Take care,

Hello all,

 

First, as Coronavirus is gripping the world, please wash your hands, heed travel advisories, and check and double-check information floating around the internet.

 

Add-on Updater 20.03 is on its way – this important (and mandatory) add-on release will show up for all NVDA users within the next 24 hours. Changes include:

 

  • NVDA 2019.3 or later is required.
  • NVDA itself will check compatibility range, not the add-on.

 

As I announced a few weeks ago, with Add-on Updater 20.03, all my add-ons I’m currently maintaining have graduated to Python 3 – all my add-ons will now require NVDA 2019.3 or later. As such, once Add-on Updater 20.03 shows up, old Python 2 versions of my add-ons will be removed from community add-ons website.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Selecting Cells in Table

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Bhavya,

Did this used to work?  I must admit I couldn't remember - I just tried in Word (365) and the current version of Firefox with both NVDA 2019.3.1 and 2019.2.1 and while I can navigate tables with control+alt+arrows, I can't add shift to select cells.  You could create an issue for this.

Quentin.

Dear all,

The current scenario is that I am on a standard table on a webpage
displayed by Firefox. I am seeking to select multiple cells of a
specific column.
1 Shift+Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys don't produce any effect.
* Shift +Ctrl+arrow keys keep selecting the subsequent cell, i.e. the
next cell in the same row as opposed to the next cell in the column.
I would appreciate any methods or tricks to accomplish what I am trying to do.

Thanks.
