That's
true for Firefox as well. Also, I'm not sure what you want to do.
You appear to want to be able to save multimedia files without them
opening

in
Chrome or Firefox. As I said, there may be ways to do these things
you don't know about in both browsers even if there are no
settings. I can't discuss multimedia files in part because I'm not
sure just what kinds of files you are discussing and I may not have
tried to save those filetypes..
But in terms of files such as audio files like MP3s, in Firefox,
once the file starts to play in the browser, you can save it by
issuing the command control s, then using the save as dialog that
opens. I wouldn't be surprised if that is true in Chrome as well.

Please explain what you want to do in detail so people can address it.

Re: issue with google chrome 64 update.

 

my cpu is 2core and i experience slowness in firefox 52, specially

the last version of chrome which work on xp is chrome 49

patch for these problems since only operating system code is involved and
firefox could not patch that.
No, I suspect that an update to the 52 version of Firefox has deliberately

made it a higher priority task on processors so it runs faster, on faster
hardware, but has very bad effects on other hardware, depending on their
age. I'd not have expected an I5 processor to notice but it does as the ff
in use is the 32 bit version.

hi brian.
the issue for slowness in firefox 52.6 i think its because of spectre
bug fixed in this version.
i read in some websites that the patches for fixing spectre bug,
causes slowness in previous windows and older hardwares.

I just tried with Chrome Version 64.0.3282.167 (Official Build)
(64-bit) (Chrome says it's up to date), and with NVDA 2017.4 and also
the latest Next snapshot and I can press alt+left and alt+right arrows
to move between pages. Possibly something else is interfering with
the keystroke?

If you've updated anything lately, maybe restart it, and even the
machine (you posted this three days ago so you possibly have since
then anyway). Otherwise, are you using any Chrome extensions that

I don't know if it's a problem of NVDA cannot seem to update the

someone's come across this?
some tips?

I do this when I need to shuttle my internet trafic to another state or country when my ISP is doing somethingn I don't like I'd say just use the software and don't worry about getting into trouble.

No.  They have worked on a method for backing up data so that when you
reinstall the program, you can put the data back.  I don't know how
comprehensive the data backed up is nor do I know whether it is considered
to be in its stable form or if it is still a beta.

Yes, this has happened to me more than once.  When windows 10 has a major
update it removes OE.  But this is the third version of OE that I've
downloaded.  Perhaps they've found a way to lock it in now?

Re: issue with google chrome 64 update.

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

Hmm, I'm not convinced as i do not think it was ever patched for XP and my xp machine is not set up to get windows updates. it is also noticeably slower in all computers updated or not. I do not think browsers gave any patch for these problems since only operating system code is involved and firefox could not patch that.
No, I suspect that an update to the 52 version of Firefox has deliberately made it a higher priority task on processors so it runs faster, on faster hardware, but has very bad effects on other hardware, depending on their age. I'd not have expected an I5 processor to notice but it does as the ff in use is the 32 bit version.

hi brian.
the issue for slowness in firefox 52.6 i think its because of spectre

i read in some websites that the patches for fixing spectre bug,
causes slowness in previous windows and older hardwares.

the latest Next snapshot and I can press alt+left and alt+right arrows

If you've updated anything lately, maybe restart it, and even the

Well the webie pdf reader can read the text in pdf files and its free, so I'd doubt if its going to be an issue. Also what is to stop one of us finding the old archive of adobe reader that does work in xp and accidentally leving it in dropbox for a while.

But in terms of files such as audio files like MP3s, in Firefox, once
the
file starts to play in the browser, you can save it by issuing the
command
control s, then using the save as dialog that opens. I wouldn't be
surprised if that is true in Chrome as well.

Please explain what you want to do in detail so people can address it.

You may want to live in the technological past indefinitely but you

the settings, or almost all of them, I haven't checked every one, are

are
very usable, even though not fully accessible. Chrome is largely
accessible
and is very usable, though not completely everything is. But it's
usable
enough so that almost everything desired can be done except in the
case
of
add ons which may not be accessible, but that's the fault of the add

I'm going into all this mainly because your message may, if not

mslead others into believing Chrome is not usable and is not

is
reasonably accessible and quite usable.

As far as playing audio files, Chrome does play audio. I don't know
if
it
plays what you are trying to play. I don't know what you are having
problems with but please don't state things as though they are facts

I don't know for some ridiculous reason Microsoft do not want you to use their own software, and yet are unable to supply as good an email and news solution as Outlook Express. There is I fancy, somewhere in Microsoft somebody or a view that new must be better, without anybody querying it. Look at what this arrogance is doing to Skype.
Its exactly the same thing that caused Edge to be rubbish at the start and arguably still is rubbish from the usability point of view.

Did you change the keyboard layout or are you still using the default, which is the desktop layout?  If you are using the desktop layout, press and hold either the main keyboard insert and press down arrow.  If you changed to the laptop layout, another list member will give the command.  I don't use it.

Quentin Christensen, 20/02/2018 00:58:

Hi everyone,

Since this problem seemed to happen to some users and not others (and some
intermittently), our best guess is that the file gets distributed across
several servers to make it a faster download for people in different parts
of the world, and one of these copies may have got corrupt during copying.

In any case, Mick has pushed an update this morning which is live now and
certainly at least for me, seems to download ok:

Version 14868,48743675 Mon Feb 19 23:22:15 2018

I expect the same problem will remain for anyone trying to download the
previous master build, but if you have problems with this new one, please
let us know.

Regards

I wonder failing all of that if there is a keep alive setting in WGet
where it will just keep trying and resuming until the download is gotten,
or you can try it from a remote box via ssh somewhere and then download
it from there later.

Hi Brian


I just tried getting the snapshot with sea monkey and doing it manually
and i get the following message below.


C:\Users\hurri\AppData\Local\Temp\1yjDH9cM.exe.part could not be saved,
because the source file could not be read.

Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

Even if it does start downloading it dies shortly after.


It seems to do it in all the browsers not download but other sites will
let me download stuff.


It is weird how some can get it and not others.


so am guessing now do i contact nvaccess since it is there server?

If not then its a routing issue to the servers from your location by the
sounds of it, but its very odd. Anyone else you know in your area who can
also try it? Might be good to see if its your end or in fact a widespread
issue.
I guess you could try some pings to the server address and see if the
round trip time or packet loss is unacceptable.

Hi Gene


No problems with the internet or going to the snapshots page etc it is
say when you go to either update the master snapshot through the help
section it goes up to the server and then you press the enter key on the
save one to download it it is just not downloading from there server that
way and even if you go to the main page where the snapshots are and click
on the file to download it you still get the same result. Some of the file
might come down maybe 400 k or so some times more but never the whole
program.


The anti virus is not stopping it either. I have also tried different
browsers still the same result.


It seems to be wanting me to retry the download all the time so is not
downloading from the snapshots page but no problems any where else for
downloading.

I doubt it. There may some problem in your area or in your part of the

the server. there is no reason that different servers would be used.

Hi


Nar no matter which browser you use and which way it is just not coming
down. I even tried it on the next snapshot and the same results.


I also did it with either the save link thingy in mozilla fire fox and
what ever the others are called as well.


it is weird how you and some others can get it but not me. I used to be
able to get it every week apart from this weekend.


I am guessing maybe other servers are used for you guys?

Hi guys


is the servers playing up? For the last couple of days i have been trying
to download a master snapshot and each time it comes down it is only about
540k. Is the server playing up? for when i go to click on it up comes a
security smart screen I think it is the windows one.


I am also wondering if things have changed like it is a stub then it gets
the main file? I am guessing not.


I usually like once a week to see what might of gone into it each week.


Has any one else had the same problems?


This was doing it from inside of the master snapshot under the help
section.


I have also tried it from the main page and still got the same results.


This was again on feb 18th and also tried on the 17th

As far as updates are concerned, you can't avoid updates
because Chrome automatically updates.
But
that doesn't matter in your case. You use XP and Google
Chrome, the browser, hasn't been updated for XP for perhaps almost
a year.
In addition, the settings, or almost all of them, I haven't
checked every one, are accessible, or at least can be worked
with.
You have to do certain things to be able to work with some of
them such as manually turn off and on browse mode. The
program isn't as accessible as it should be but there is a
difference between accessibility and usability and a lot of
programs are very usable, even though not fully accessible.
Chrome is largely accessible and is very usable, though not
completely everything is. But it's usable enough so that
almost everything desired can be done except in the case of
add ons which may not be accessible, but that's the fault of the
add on designer.

I'm going into all this mainly because your message may, if
not discussed, mslead others into believing Chrome is not
usable and is not reasonably accessible. I don't particularly
like the interface but the program is reasonably accessible
and quite usable.

As far as playing audio files, Chrome does play audio. I
don't know if it plays what you are trying to play. I don't
know what you are having problems with but please don't state
things as though they are facts based on only your experience
with an unfamiliar program. It's perfectly alright to say, I
couldn't get it to do this or that. That doesn't mean it can't be

on my system, even this feature is on by default and by the
grace of God, i could find it in about:config if i could not
find this option for my firefox, i kept firefox 25 forever without update!
because this problem happened since firefox 26 that does not
allow downloading multimedia files without changing settings in
about:config by the way, did you try chromium and slimjet which
i asked about them?

As far as updates are concerned, you can't avoid updates
because Chrome automatically updates.
But
that doesn't matter in your case. You use XP and Google
Chrome, the browser, hasn't been updated for XP for perhaps almost a year.
In addition, the settings, or almost all of them, I haven't
checked every one, are accessible, or at least can be worked with.
You have to do certain things to be able to work with some of
them such as manually turn off and on browse mode. The
program isn't as accessible as it should be but there is a
difference between accessibility and usability and a lot of
programs are very usable, even though not fully accessible.
Chrome is largely accessible and is very usable, though not
completely everything is. But it's usable enough so that
almost everything desired can be done except in the case of
add ons which may not be accessible, but that's the fault of the add on designer.

I'm going into all this mainly because your message may, if
not discussed, mslead others into believing Chrome is not
usable and is not reasonably accessible. I don't particularly
like the interface but the program is reasonably accessible
and quite usable.

As far as playing audio files, Chrome does play audio. I
don't know if it plays what you are trying to play. I don't
know what you are having problems with but please don't state
things as though they are facts based on only your experience
with an unfamiliar program. It's perfectly alright to say, I
couldn't get it to do this or that. That doesn't mean it can't be done.

Re: Recommendations of Win10 + NVDA Apps and Settings?

The quoted message asks the question.  If you didn't read the entire quoted message or just part of it, you won't see it.  It asks at the end, what other settings may improve Windows performance.
 
I don't use Windows 10.  But my impression is that, starting with Windows 7, very few settings need be changed.  I don't recall changing any settings other than show extensions and to use list or details for folders and files.  I don't know if screen-readers do this or if Windows is now smart enough to do this when it sees that a screen-reader is in use, but features that may cause problems such as using certain effects are automatically turned off when a screen-reader is used.  These sorts of things that blind people used to change have been automated and no longer need to be done.  and that has the further advantage that when a blind person unloads a screen-reader, sighted users can see Windows as they are accustomed to.

If there  actually was a question i can't see it, just a statement, unless cyber space ate the question or you hit send to early which I often do, about twice a day. Lol!  What questions  did you have re the windows  Settings? I do agree with you by the way, I didn't even change anything except for the settings under language and speech or what ever that setting was called under the windows I section

It's been  a while since i've used Win10 and  NVDA, so I wanted to tap the wisdom of this group.

 

In addition to setting the default browser, Cortona hotword/keyboard shortcuts, setting folder views to detailed view, adjusting for performance, etc.

 

For the best and most accessible experience with Win10 and NVDA, what are the  must get apps and must configure settings?

Thanks!!
