NVDA Systematic Crash

Vlad Dragomir
 

Greetings,

 

I’ve recently switched laptops, and on this new one, NVDA crashes systematically at each restart, right at the beginning, after I type the pin on the lockscreen. Would any of our beloved experts be kind enough to assist me in, at least diagnosing, if not solving this?

 

A few more details: there are no errors in either nvda.Log or nvda-old.Log. On the other hand, there is a file in Temp named “nvda_crash.Dmp”, whose contents seems unreadable to humans, or at least non-specialists like me. Would it help if I pasted the contents of that file in an email here for someone able to decode it? Thank you very much in advance, grateful regards.

 

Vlad.

Hi,

There is a precompiled server for windows here:

https://github.com/jmdaweb/NVDARemoteServer/releases/download/release-1.6/NVDARemoteServer-win-1.6-x64.zip


Extract this to any location of your choosing. Inside the folder, right
click service manager.cmd and run it as administrator. Here is where you can
select to install the service, run it at startup, among other self
explanatory features.


Another good idea is to run the NVDA remote certificate.cmd file, again as
administrator, to create your own SSL certificate for your remote server.

Just replace the version number in this link and you'll get any version you want.

Does NV Access run an FTP server with old NVDA releases just as Mozilla does for archived versions of their software?

Re: Looking For Older Version of NVDA

 

David,

             All of the historical NVDA releases, including the various betas and release candidates, are available via the Releases page for the NVDA GitHub.  See: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/releases

However, I'll be darned if I can find a way to download the compiled version of the installer, which I could have sworn was possible.  All I'm seeing is the source code as a ZIP file or tarball.

Unfortunately, I've deleted my installer or I'd have passed it along to you.

I have often wondered why NVAccess does not host a library of previous versions of NVDA.  There are times where one might want something other than the current release.

Re: Grammar checker

 

This thread is so fragmented. The most accessible grammar and spell checker you will find is the one built into word. Get Microsoft Office 365. None, and I do mean this. None, of the third party offerings are accessible or worth your money. None of them. Microsoft 365 is your best option, especially with a screen reader.

Intriguing, but not enough for me to click on a URL that seems very unfamiliar. If this is truly useful information, can we have it added to nvaccess or the maling list WIKI?

 

Thanks!

External email alert: Be wary of links & attachments.

Recently, people asked how to change the NVDA sounds. I found this helpful tutorial and I feel it is necessary to share.

Hello digital companion!
Do you know that you can change all NVDA sounds or anyone of the sound?
The beautiful part is that you don't need any ready-made sound to do this.
You can use any sound you like and make your NVDA sound unique. Yes it is absolutely achievable!
Just click the link below to learn how it's been done.
Enjoy!

Re: Spelling error in word 2016

 

Are you using the optional browse mode in Microsoft Word documents (and this appears to be on by default, as I don't remember turning it on?   If so, and you know that you've activated browse mode instead of focus mode (NVDA+spacebar toggles) the single letter navigation W will take you to words identified as misspelled.  (See section 6 of the NVDA user guide.)

Unless you're using a really ancient version of Word, the built-in spelling and grammar checking works just fine with a screen reader.  There's no need for a third party utility.

Though I have turned on all options for spelling error, why doesn't nvda provide feed back for misspelled word in Microsoft word 2016?

Then, please, submit a feature request to the NVDA Github page, as it is abundantly clear that what you are seeking does not exist at this time.

And, this topic is now entirely exhausted, and is locked.

Web pages are a little different though. If you go to a web page, there
might be several minutes of reading menus, sidebars, headers, and other
crap, before you ever get to the meat of the page.
That's why the auto read for webpages can be turned off.

With an email, if you open it, presumably you intend to read all or part of
it, and so it is more reasonable to start reading it.

That said, in my mind, it would make a lot more sense if it started reading
the entire mesage rather than just the first line. If it just reads the
first line, you still have to take manual action to read the rest of the
message. It seems like it would not be satisfying either the people who want
to hear nothing, or the ones who want to hear the entire message without
doing anything after they hit open. So I'm not sure of the value of a first
line only read.

Hello Johnathon,

 

I’m not really sure what that is or how to change it. Would you mind explaining further?

 

Thanks,

I believe there is a setting (perhaps in advanced) to have NVDA use UIA for Office applications. Does the behavior change if you toggle this?

If you are reading mail as HTML, it will, by default, read the entire message.  There is a setting in NVDA to not automatically use read to end which, as I recall, is in the Browse Mode settings.
 
If you turn this off, I would expect, though I haven't checked, that the first line of the message would be read.  This will affect anything using browse mode unless you use a profile.
