Re: OT: selecting a new laptop is more difficult than before

How do you know when a pc with and ssd drive is running? If you can't see it, is there still something you can hear? Both our pcs still have regular drives so we're curious.
Original message:

Once you go SSD you don't want to ever go back. You can if needed but
you really don't want to techy or no techy. I might hate the size of
the SSD on my Mac book pro but I love that it has one. My windows
10 custom built Machine flies because of this SSD and the fact it does
have a pretty nice processor.

with my ssd. Some of these things, like an ssd can only be experienced,
not described. The benchmarks only hint at the performance improvement.
So my suggestion gene, is for you to someday try using a system with an
ssd for just 5 minutes, and I garantee you you will never want to go
back to a normal harddrive.

Let's say it takes four seconds to open Microsoft Word using a
mechanical drive.  let's say it takes one second using a mechanical
drive.  How have I saved any amount of time that means anything?  If I
open word and load a document and I spend four seconds to open the
program and four seconds in actual loading time after I find the
document and press enter in the open dialog, then I spend twenty
minutes working with the document or even ten minutes, how is eight
seconds a meaningful amount of time?  I can leave one or two programs
opened, if I wish, if I use them a lot.

On another subject related to SSD drives, I consider sweeping
statements such as, these days, everyone should have SSD drives to be
far too prescriptive and overgeneral.  If you do things where speed
matters, copying lots of large files, converting lots of large files,
doing a lot of recording of long works and exporting the recording to
a compressed format such as MP3, and other uses I haven't though of
while at the moment, then it would make sense.  but if you mainly do
things like word processing, web browsing, and other typical uses, I
don't consider it important.  there are some people who just want
everything to be very fast, they don't want programs to take one or
two seconds to open, they want a program to open almost instantly.  If
they want to spend the money for emotional satisfaction and
indulgence, fine, but not everyone wants or needs hotrods, whetgher in
computers, cars, or anywhere else.
There may be another time when having an SSD drive might be important,
others may wish to comment.  If you have a laptop, and are going to
use it under conditions where it will be jostled and jolted somewhat
severely or severely while in use, such as driving over rather rough
or very rough roads, then I would think an SSD would be a good idea
or  important.

I would be very interested if you could post some links to the
information
about SSDs becoming unwriteable.
Regarding defragmenting an SSD - there is absolutely no point.
The whole purpose of defragmenting a traditional spinning hard disk
was to get
all the parts of a single file together, instead of being spread
(fragmented)
across the drive, which happens when small files are deleted and then
larger
ones are written into the gaps afterwards.  Having the entire file
together in
one place is much more efficient for reading it later than having it
spread
around the disk (because it takes time for the mechanical heads to go
and find
all the different parts).
With an SSD, accessing one part is just as efficient as any other -
nothing
needs to move to get to the next part, so fragmented files are no less
efficient
to read than complete ones.

I am only raising this point because I don’t fully understand the

I was told by a computer engineer that it is not a good idea to de

In these modern days, hard drives truly limit the speed of a

go for
something with a solid state drive. You’ll never go back again.
Even a

that huge i5 with a 1 tb spinning hard drives in booting up, general

Using brows mode to navigate by buttons doesn't work as these

Go to the login page and make a bookmark. I can tell you
how to use the bookmarks search feature to find it quickly
and conveniently so you don't have to worry about where it
is in the book marks list. If it doesn't have a
distinctive name, give it one when you save it to make it
easy to find with the book marks search feature. Then open
a new page when you want to log in and use the book mark to

I doubt it. When a dialog opens on a web page, NVDA says
the word "dialog." Have you gotten to the alert message or
heard its entire text? On the new page you open, what is
this option; is it a link? Instead of tabbing until you
get to it on the new page, use the screen-reader search
function and search from the top of the page for the word
"open." See if you can find whatever it is on the page.
If you can't find it, I may find something in firefox that
makes finding the alert easier.

Try the demos and see which you want.  The add on has lots of artifacts and I wouldn't get it for myself.  If I were going to by one of the two, it would be the SAPI5 version.  But you need to try the demos to see what you think and how they perform on your machine.  I've heard contradictory things about the SAPI5 version, with some people saying it isn't responsive enough and others saying its fine.  also, how do you know you will find the artifacts as annoying as I do in the add on version.

efficient reading of messages in Outlook 2016 with NVDA

Mary Otten
 

I have both JAWS and NVDA on this machine. I am really liking the simplicity of NVDA, but I do have a question about efficiently reading email. There has been a discussion on another list about how you can configure either Window Eyes or JAWS to automatically read the next message in outlook. The upshot seems to be that if you have outlook configured to automatically open the next or previous message, depending on how your messages are sorted, that once you have a message open and hit control d for delete, the next message will automatically open and the reading of the message text will commence. This sounds like about the most efficient way to get through lots of mail--that and being able to get rid of a whole thread if it doesn't interest you--of course. Can this be done with NVDA? I didn't see an add on that looked like it would do this. Any possibility for that?

Using brows mode to navigate by buttons doesn't work as these buttons seem to not be in the main document. It was one of the first strategies I tried.

For now, I think the bookmark option is the simplest solution.

Thank you!

I doubt it.  When a dialog opens on a web page, NVDA says the word "dialog."  Have you gotten to the alert message or heard its entire text?  On the new page you open, what is this option; is it a link?  Instead of tabbing until you get to it on the new page, use the screen-reader search function and search from the top of the page for the word "open."  See if you can find whatever it is on the page.  If you can't find it, I may find something in firefox that makes finding the alert easier.

It calls itself an alert and I do get to it eventually by tabbing. Do you still think it is a dialogue?

I am using the extended service release of Firefox on windows 10 machine with the stable release of NVDA. Sometimes Firefox will put up notices, such as when it offers to remember passwords or when it informs you that has blocked a redirection from the site. How can I access these in order to either tell it I don’t want it to save a password or that I do wanted to allow a redirection?

Power Point presentation access

ely.r@...
 

Afternoon All,

In the past, I have had  make a good number of Power Point presentations. I could edit them with a screen reader, but I could not have any of them speak the presentation as I used it. I then found a small free app called Power Talk. It would speak each slide as it was presented. It would even read alt tags with descriptions of graphics.

It started as a project on Source forge. I can still find it, but it will not work with Power Point 365. It is not clear if it is the program or Windows 10 that are the culprit. Does anyone on the list know of a similar app?

Thanks for ideas,

Rick


nvda's unresponsiveness

Marisane Moruthanyana
 

Evening guys

I am Marisane from SA.

I recently posted to you about nvda 2017.3 unresponsiveness, but none
of you came to my rescue.

Nvda goes unresponsive everytime I run more than one applications.

It also goes unresponsive when I am working on he internet.

I use nvda 2017.3 and win10.

My win10 is : Windows 10Ver1703 (64-bit) build 15063.726.

On other occasions, I use jaws16 but it does not go unresponsive when
I run multiple applications or am working on the internet.

What is wrong with nvda? Why so unresponsive in win10?

May I also understand about win10 fall creators? What is that?

Sorry for being without this knowledge about win10.

I am, of course, not technical.

Please help.

Kind regards
Marisane

filling out forms with adobe reader and nvda

brandon
 

Hello all,


I was wondering if there is a way to fill out forms in adobe reader. These forms don't actually have any clear indications of checkboxes or anything like that that. This form just has ___ where you are supposed to put your information.

Any help would be wonderful

Brandon


Re: How to access Firefox notifications with NVDA

Gene
 

I've seen messages like that and they appear in a notification area.  Sometimes I can find them by moving to the address bar and then tabbing and shift tabbing a few times from the address bar.  I don't remember now which I did to find them so I would try both if I needed to.  As you say, they aren't a part of the web page.  Perhaps someone knows a command to move to the notification area.  There is one in Chrome.  Working with the buttons often isn't easy.  But if you ever have to work with such a message, you can try the address bar idea.  But the book mark idea would be much more convenient in this case.

*Subject:* [nvda] How to access Firefox notifications with NVDA

I am using the extended service release of Firefox on windows 10 machine with the stable release of NVDA. Sometimes Firefox will put up notices, such as when it offers to remember passwords or when it informs you that has blocked a redirection from the site. How can I access these in order to either tell it I don’t want it to save a password or that I do wanted to allow a redirection?

Hello Rui,

Thank you for the documentation. It sounds like it might help in this situation and is certainly worth a try.

It also addresses some issues I was having with Thunderbird that I hadn't bothered to ask about yet.

Pretty handy add-on!

Thanks again,
Sally

Mozilla Scripts
add-on that provides NVDA scripts for Mozilla
Firefox
• NVDA+A (desktop) or NVDA+Control+A (laptop) Reads the page address. If pressed twice quickly, copies it to clipboard.
• NVDA+End (desktop) or NVDA+Shift+End (laptop) Reads the status bar. If pressed twice quickly, copies it to clipboard.
• NVDA+F8 Shows a list of opened tabs. If pressed twice quickly, shows buttons of tool bar.
• NVDA+Control+N Reads the last notification and it takes the system focus to it if it is possible. By pressing two times quickly shows the history of notifications.
• NVDA+F6 Brings the focus to the document.
Thunderbird
• In a message window:
◦ Control+Shift+(1-4) Reads the sender and recipients of the message. If pressed twice quickly, opens the options menu.
◦ Control+Shift+5 Reads the subject of the message.
◦ Control+Shift+6 Reads date of the message.
◦ Control+Shift+A Brings the focus to the list of attachments, if any. (These scripts are also available in the list of messages if you activate the preview pane.)
• In the bar of fast filtering:
◦ Press down Arrow to display more options, enter to check/unchek the selected option.
• In messages list:
◦ If the preview pane is active, press NVDA+downArrow (desktop) or NVDA+A (laptop) to read the message without leaving the list.
◦ Control+NVDA+1-9 moves between columns.
◦ NVDA+H Displays a dialog in which you can change the order of the columns in the message list.
Keystrokes can be customized in Preferences of NVDA > Input gestures when Firefox or Thunderbird are open.

Hello Gene,

I like the bookmark idea and will probably go with that.

To answer some of your questions:

It seems to be a series of buttons, I think 3 in total. I have only ever heard the last two which say something along the lines of "open login page" and "close this message," respectively.

Using brows mode to navigate by buttons doesn't work as these buttons seem to not be in the main document. It was one of the first strategies I tried.

For now, I think the bookmark option is the simplest solution.

Thank you!

I doubt it.  When a dialog opens on a web page, NVDA says the word "dialog."  Have you gotten to the alert message or heard its entire text?  On the new page you open, what is this option; is it a link?  Instead of tabbing until you get to it on the new page, use the screen-reader search function and search from the top of the page for the word "open."  See if you can find whatever it is on the page.  If you can't find it, I may find something in firefox that makes finding the alert easier.
