Re: what's "keeper?"

 

It sounds like the Keeper Password Manager app, which there are reports of having installed as part of Creators Update on some machines.  I can't find it on my own machine nor my partner's.  

If you do a web search on "Keeper Password Manager" and "Creators Update" you'll see the various discussions.

Hi,

I was looking at my start menu, and found an app called keeper.

I opened it, and it asked me for an email address, and master password.

Does anyone know what this app is for?

Re: Nvda Scripting and virtual document

Sampa <scratchoun8@...>
 

Hi,

Thank you for your fast reply.

I've already made a few scripts for some non-web application, and I used the links above. But I can't find any documentation or examples on how to deal with virtual documents.

I've also searched in NVDA sources or in some plugins, but I don't understand how to proceed to catch the Dom object and how to work with it.

Best regards,

Sampa

I think if that does not work then its the problem I suggested. I've never seen this issue myself though fixing it is the reason why xp support was suddenly dropped as the only fix meant you could not easily keep supporting the older systems.

Might be interesting to know whether the Master branch still exhibits this, though I'm not sure if the fix has got there as yet. I'm experiencing some serious issues with installing updates to nvda recently with locking up on restart and lots of strange errors duing copying files on portable versions as well.

That isn't a new problem. It has been in existence for quite some time. I don't know how far bac it goes. Browse mode doesn't work properly, if at all. Tab works whether you are in browse mode or not. Restart Firefox to solve the problem.

Hello,

Does anyone else have this problem:

Start the latest stable NVDA, open the latest Firefox, restart NVDA, try to arrow through the Firefox page. The arrow keys don’t work, just the tab key.

Thank you,

Re: News regarding Firefox.

I did read the chat on that bug report but its often hard to interpret why they cannot fix something in an older version. I have no idea why they could not back port it in this case, maybe our usage is not such a big issue to them to have to do a lot of coding, who knows?

Thanks for this brian, I have turned off firefox updates.

Hopefully every so often I will be able to get the latest stable release without the issues in it.

The issue will be those that autoupdate.

Re: podcatcher with NVDA

The webbie ones seem to work well, even a normal search if you make it carefully can bring up all sorts of goodies so whatever pad downloader you get can normally allow you to paste in any podcast addresses manually.
Its not rocket science, unless that is you want a podcast about Rocket science!

Re: podcatcher with NVDA

slery <slerythema@...>
 

QCast stopped working a while ago. I already own it and I also did not like the way it worked.

I do NOT use any iDevices and do not want to. Currently, I do not wish to use my Android for podcasts either since I like to download the .mp3s and sync them to my Bookport. I do not use the podcatcher on the bookport because it likes to redownload things when you delete them after having listened to it.

While I prefer something close to the free range at this time, it must have a trial version.
