Hi david

I tried the caps lock plus m, to read all. But it didn’t work.

Is there a command that can be used without the caps lock?

Thanks in advance

Anthony

Not the David you were emailing but I think you can also get to Narrator Settings using windows U and pressing tab.

Reading all document is an unintuitive Cap lock m

Yes most definitely!,

turn on Narrator with CTRL+Windows+Enter, and go to any image,

Press:

Shift+Caps Lock+D.

Narrator will describe the image, even if there is no text.

Very powerful!

Please email me off list if you want.

I believe that Narrator uses some kind of service to do this image description.

Thanks. I do hope on the next future releases of Windows 10 has to

include this feature, like they did on the app of Seeing AI. Apology to

the admin for raising this off topic however, it is very interesting to

discuss it here somehow.

Has a keystroke been introduced to let us know how much space is left on the drives with actual figures and not have to subtract to get the actual amount of space left? For instance mine says C:\ (NTFS unidad): 258.13gb de 280.79gb utilizado 91.9%. F:\ (FAT32 unidad): 7.25mb de 1.99gb utilizado 0.4%. when I'd like it to have a keystroke where it'd say something like (NTFS unidad): Space remaining 22.6 GBlike this for all the drives. Would such a keystroke for instance of the eight be possible to implement?

Re: setting up winamp

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Hi.

You should use winamp v5.666 with Windows 10.

When my friend built this machine for me, he had already installed winamp. However, he did it incorrectly. I did not ask him what procedure he used, but not only was the version not the latest build, but it somehow ended up being installed into the wrong directory; one that my user account was not supposed to modify with admin rights, so every time I tried to save settings, they would just revert back to their previous state. I had to uninstall and re-install the programme myself, and now it works great, though it does crash more in Windows 10 than it did in XP (not while playing though, thankfully). Make sure it installs into the program files\x86 folder. Then use Windows 10 file associations to set what you want Winamp to play. I have it set to all audio formats, but no video files (VLC is the master of all video players, after all).

I know that there has been lots of responses already but  I too have often had difficulties installing various versions of Winamp.

There are  lots of versions out there and not all work well on Windows 10 at least.

Some version when installed  will not open mp3 files properly from File Explorer despite association and other weird issues Like freezing during the startup wizard when you select skins etc.

Generally I have learnt to only use the version of that can be downloaded from www.nimite.com

Essentially what I would do  is in-install the version of Winamp sshe is using and download the version from Nimite.

No guarantees  of course but this is the way I have overcome Winamp difficulties  of this sort in the past.

Re: setting up winamp

I have been reading the thread backwards (yes, I know) so haven’t seen all responses yet, but the only thing to keep in mind is to make sure you use the “classic” skin and not any of the “modern” ones that come with winamp. The programme will still work if you use a modern skin, but you will have trouble getting your screen-reader  to say much that’s useful.

Re: setting up winamp

Gene
 

I'm sorry, but many of these commands are wrong.
 
X plays the current track.  C toggles between play and pause.  Z moves to the previous track and b moves to the next track.  Control z moves to the first track and control b moves to the last track. 
 
The movement arrow commands are correct, that is left and right arrow move back and forward in a track.  Press and release to move by one increment, I think five seconds.  Press and hold to move quickly back and forward. 
 
I don't have my Winamp set to adjust volume so I can't conveniently check the up and down arrow commands.

We don't know what is meant by imprecise terms like couldn't get it to run or doesn't work.  We need descriptions of behavior.  Do you get an error message when you play a file?  How are you trying to play files, by pressing enter on the file name or from within the program itself?  It may just be that you haven't made it the default program for playing files and that, if you are pressing enter on a file, that it still plays in the program you were using before. 
 
I don't know the procedure for making a program the default program in Windows 10.  You can't use the way that works in Winamp in earlier versions of Windows.  You must tell Windows directly to make Winamp the default player.  Others can tell you how to do this if you don't know.  But at this point, we don't know what, if anything, you've done in this respect nor do we know anything about the problem you are having.

That is silly. I used it on windows 10 with no issues.
 The only issue is that file associations need often to be Manually tweaked
due to the way win 10 tries to protect the  default ones.

I know that there has been lots of responses already but  I too have often
had difficulties installing various versions of Winamp.

There are  lots of versions out there and not all work well on Windows 10 at
least.

Some version when installed  will not open mp3 files properly from File
Explorer despite association and other weird issues Like freezing during the
startup wizard when you select skins etc.

Generally I have learnt to only use the version of that can be downloaded
from www.nimite.com <http://www.nimite.com>

Essentially what I would do  is in-install the version of Winamp sshe is
using and download the version from Nimite.

No guarantees  of course but this is the way I have overcome Winamp
difficulties  of this sort in the past.

Hi,

 

I have just discovered Winamp myself! I see that you and many others are fully familiar with it. I installed it two days ago. I can play my mp3 files now but I had a  problem finding out how to do it. I have no menu bar like the menu bar in other Windows programs. I found that the application key gives me a choice of actions. I wonder have I installed a non-accessible version of Winamp? What should I do to have a fully accessible version and where can I find ou all about what to do?

 

 

All the best,

Re: any tutorials on windows media player?

Gene
 

Does the person just want to listen to files?  If that's all, then a tutorial is real overkill.  If the person wants to do things like work with playlists, rip and burn files, and perhaps other things I can't think of now, then a tutorial might be desired. 
 
If all the person wants to do is play files, I'll send a message with a small number of commands which may be all the person needs.  If the person wants to do more, then others may know about tutorials.

Re: Very frustrating error in Outlook 2016

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Brian,

Thanks for taking an interest in this topic! You put a few different questions here. I will try to answer them:
1. The threshold is at the nth item not related to a position on the screen. For example, if the 124th item is the last one from the beginning that NVDA does not speak, then the 125th one is spoken. If I am arrowing down the list, this 124th item would be at the bottom of the screen. However, when reading from the spoken items backwards up towards the beginning of the list, the 125th item would be at the top of the screen. An up-arrow to the silent 124th item would keep the 124th item at the top of the screen. So, the position on the screen is not related to the problem.

2. If the item is not spoken, I can press tab once and then when I press shift + tab back onto the silent item, NVDA does speak out its details.

3. Even when the message is silent after pressing the arrow key, it will open when I press the enter key and NVDA will read the body of the message correctly in the usual way. This means that the cursor is still active on the item and all windows controls such as up and down arrows, tabs etc. are functioning. It's just that NVDA is silent on that particular list item details.

All the best,

Cearbhall

Hmm, well, I'm assuming here that no matter what the scrolling state of this list is, the same point always stops reading,as I doubt all 200 are on screen together is what I mean. In this case it does look like there is no data coming to nvda about any scrolling or highlighting of a message. If you use nvda/b does this reveal the missing text and can it be gotten to in one of the navigation modes, as to me at least if it can actually be seen by nvda, then the problem seems to be that something is stopping nvda from knowing its actually at the point that you need to read the info. If you go down a couple of lines to the un-announced item, can you then open it and read it or does it open the one it stopped at?

Unfortunately as previously mentioned you cannot attach files in this list,
you can though use a public dropbox link to one.
Unfortunately I do not have 2016 Office so cannot help but it would be
interesting to find somebody with windows 7 and the version you are using as
well as another windows 10 user. I've just been trying to figure this out
though. 200 does not sound like a number that a computer issue would choose,
it sounds almost like a number invented by a human. Most numbers in
computers revolve around how many bits are used to store the number possibly
in hex or binary form.

In my old copy of outlook express for example i could get it to read the
whole list of hundreds, though I'd probably go to sleep first.
The work around of course is to make new folders and shove a months worth
into dated folders.

Martin,



I think you may have missed an important point. NVDA is not missing part of
the screen. It is reading the screen all around the list. The problem is
consistent with NVDA only reading the last 200 items in a list that exceeds
200 messages in length. As only 40 messages at most can be displayed on the
screen, there is no way that this problem relates to screen capture! When I
remove enough emails from the list so that 200 messages or less are now
contained in the list, all the messages are read when moving the up or down
arrow on the list. To make sure that the problem is not specific to any
individual messages, I deliberately removed messages from the bottom of the
list. When, for example, 20 messages were removed from the bottom of a list
of 450 messages, the first messages spoken moved up from number 250 to
number 230.



It is as if NVDA has a frame of maximum 200 list items and positions this
frame at the bottom of the list rather than at the beginning. This holds
true even after I reverse the sort order of the messages in the list.



I have attached a more precise log file that shows what is happening.



All the best,



Cearbhall

The error is very strange, and it seems like NVDA is just skipping part of

Colleagues,



We are all very committed to NVDA and believe totally in the Trojan work
that the development team are doing to provide this wonderful screen
reader. I often find it to perform better than the commercial product JAWS
and that is saying a great deal because JAWS is also an excellent product
even though it costs the earth to have it!



If nobody can help with this problem, I am afraid that I am going to have
to use JAWS rather than NVDA to cope with it. Do you really want that to
happen?



I raised this on GitHub last year. I was met then with stunning silence! I
would like to run over it with you, if you don’t mind?



It normally comes and goes and is not always reproduceable. However, since
I moved to Office 365 online, it has become a permanent feature of the “Sent
Items” folder in Outlook 2016. I am running Windows 10 and NVDA 2017.3.



I have copied the log file and attach it here for your reference.



Here’s the story:

I prefer to display messages in the various folders as a simple list and
Outlook defaults to showing them in groups. So, I have learnt to turn off
“show in groups” whenever I come across it. Since Office 365 online, I
find that when I go to the “Sent Items” folder with groups turned off, I
can see only the message that is under the cursor. I would expect to hear
the next message in the list after pressing down-arrow as in the Inbox and
most other folders. However, here there is silence, even though I press
down or up-arrow many times. If I keep pressing down arrow until message 50
(more or less, it varies!) suddenly, I can hear all the messages listed. If
I up-arrow back up the list, I cross a threshold at the same message where
the voicing began and all is silent again. Down-arrow back down the list
and I break back into voicing the messages at the same threshold of message
51. If I press “end” I will drop down to the last message in the Sent
Items windows (about number 250, for example). I hear it fine. And
repeating up-arrow voices all the prior messages as I reverse up the list
until number 50 again when all goes silent.



In the attached log. I positioned on the “Sent Items” folder with “Show
in groups” unchecked. I then restarted NVDA to freshen the log. In the
log, I have typed in a message bound by three asterisks (***) to make it
easier to find where the error report starts.

Back to my story:

Then, with the refreshed NVDA, I pressed alt+v>a>b for the “Arrange By”
View menu. I then press up-arrow twice to “Show in Groups” which was
unchecked so I press space bar to check it.



Now, when I press up-arrow or down-arrow, I hear the group title and then
each of the messages that were not being voiced before.



To test this I went back into the “arrange By menu and turn off “Show in
groups” and, again, the messages in the top 50 are not being voiced.



You will see the following error line if you look at my attached log:

accRole failed: (-2147417848, 'The object invoked has disconnected from
its clients.', (None,



I carried out some further tests and found that, in fact, the list is only
showing the last 200 messages in the list. When I have 250 messages, the
first 50 messages are silent under NVDA, until I reach the 51st message.
As I frequently have about 420 messages in my sent Items before archiving,
I usually find that the 220th message is silent and then suddenly the 221st
message is spoken!





To relieve my frustration, I loaded JAWS 2016 which does not have any
problem reading each message from top to bottom in the Sent Items list.
Should I have to admit to all my NVDA critics that NVDA cannot do it and
they had better use JAWS?



All the best,



Cearbhall

That is silly. I used it on windows 10 with no issues.
The only issue is that file associations need often to be Manually tweaked due to the way win 10 tries to protect the default ones.

I tried installing winamp from that site but I still couldn't get it to run. I guess I'll just stick to windows media player.

I know that there has been lots of responses already but I too have often had difficulties installing various versions of Winamp.

There are lots of versions out there and not all work well on Windows 10 at least.

Some version when installed will not open mp3 files properly from File Explorer despite association and other weird issues Like freezing during the startup wizard when you select skins etc.

Generally I have learnt to only use the version of that can be downloaded from www.nimite.com <http://www.nimite.com>

Essentially what I would do is in-install the version of Winamp sshe is using and download the version from Nimite.

No guarantees of course but this is the way I have overcome Winamp difficulties of this sort in the past.

Hi, everyone,



I was talking to a friend of mine earlier this morning and she said she's

having trouble setting up winamp. She tried uninstalling and reinstalling it

but some of her files won't play. Are there boxes she needs to check or

uncheck?



Thanks so much for your help in advance.

I don't think this is the issue, are you saying they will play through wmp?
I'd expect the same issue for both.

Hi, everyone,

My friend said she'd be willing to use windows media player if she can't get
winamp to work but are there any tutorials on WMP?

Thanks in advance.

Really? That is odd, did you make sure you exited so it saved your setting?

On Win 10

Press windows key.

Type in user – almost certainly user account settings will come up.

Press enter.

On the dialogue which appears set the slider down to zero.

I'm not sure how you do it. I know its in the control panel. Not sure about

win ten. I'm not sure how one finds it. but if you want to install winamp

and the uac wont let you. Just tab to where it will allow it.

Hi, everyone,



How do I set the UAC level to zero? I just tried to install winamp on my

computer but I think the UAC is blocking me from installing it.



Thanks in advance.

Where did these files come from?
If she moves say one file to a folder she has no issue with, does it then play? Are the file sizes in the folder realistic, or just a few bytes?

It doesn't sound like it is a file-type association issue if they won't play
at all. Does anything play? Has she tried opening them from winamp itself
rather than from file explorer?

Hi Gene,



She's trying to play mp3 files but for some strange reason, she can't get
them to play. I had to think about the extention but they're mp3 files.

Re: setting up winamp

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hi,

 

I have just discovered Winamp myself! I see that you and many others are fully familiar with it. I installed it two days ago. I can play my mp3 files now but I had a  problem finding out how to do it. I have no menu bar like the menu bar in other Windows programs. I found that the application key gives me a choice of actions. I wonder have I installed a non-accessible version of Winamp? What should I do to have a fully accessible version and where can I find ou all about what to do?

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall
