winamp question

Arlene
 

Hi list! How do I make Winamp my default program. Someone told me before. I’m senile!  I visited a radio station and ended up using Windows Media player.  I have winamp as the default player on the control panel. But when I go to an audio file. I end up on Media player! How do I get the file using winamp? Thanks. Having a senior moment!

Holger,

       If the Version shown in the dialog that comes up after you run the winver command says Version 1703 then you have the Creators Update.  If it is anything else, and the most likely candidate would be 1607, you do not.

       Your machine will automatically update to the Creators Update sometime over the next several months as that update rolls out in waves to computers assigned to "update groups"/cohorts by Microsoft.  You need to do nothing to get it as it will be applied by the normal Windows Update process in due time.

Intro and help needed

Brandt Steenkamp <brandt.steenkamp@...>
 

Hi there folks,


I am a relative new-comer to NVDA, though I am familiar with most of the other screen Readers out there.


I find myself with an interesting issue, namely that my DoubleTalk LT, connected via a Serial to USB adapter does not want to connect to NVDA, and when it does, it talks gibberish. Any help on this issue would be much appreciated.


Thanks so long.a

Win+R then type whatever you want won't always work, as that's looking for a specifically valid command or file name path.
 
I think what you're thinking of is the search bar within the start screen.

In Windows 10 one need not even do a run command (WinKey + R).

You can simply hit the WinKey and type "winver" (sans quotes) and hit Enter.  You will be presented with the About Windows dialog that tells you what Version and Build you are running.

hi,

After installing the latest windows update, a friend of mine can no
longer read the windows+x menu and many other things. Nvda just says
unknown. SFC scannow has proven ineffective. Also, narrator doesn't read
said menus. Anyone have a solution to this?

pandora mail is a bit like Eudora and handles certificates and odd character sets better than Eudora. I haven't tried it with nvda but it worked well with Window Eyes. It costs $14.

Well thunderbird is fine, turn off lightning which you don't need and you can just use it.

Actually old eudora7 is better but as you have to validate ssl certs every few days its no good unless you run it without ssl I guess.

While testing earlier, just noticed that nvda reports the set of number

Instead of saying this proper by, 1 point 49 point 1

Normally, this is happening when the first one number occurs. Or, I may
say the one's place value of digit after the period, as stated above
mentioned sample. Is there a way to correct it to the speech settings
to make it more precise of readings numbers. I appreciate your advice.
or, perhaps someone could replicate this case. Otherwise, this is a sort
of a fix that I would needed to one users or primarily errors in nvda.
Again, I'm using the latest version of release of 2017.1 to my windows
10 Pro machine.

Re: disabling add-ons,

Gene
 

In my second answer I discussed your statement regarding your comments as opinion.  The problem is that you first started out stating something as though it is a fact, that in general add ons slow performance.  You then went on to emphasize this statement by saying that you don't use any add ons.  Then, after all that, you said that opinions differ after stating things in such a way as to say that what you are saying is the case.  Your statement that there are different opinions doesn't compensate for the way you stated and emphasized the statement earlier. 
 
If you had said at the outset something like it is my opinion that in general add ons slow performance, I would still have written to contest that but I might not have written in so strong a form. 
 
Considering the importance add ons play as a major augmentation of the abilities of NVDA and other programs, it is important that people who know little or nothing about add ons get correct information.  Now and then, an add on may slow performance.  In general they don't.

Re: Using NVDA with Conexant smart Audio?

Glad working now.


If possible, try find a way to archive that driver version, or do something like turn off any form of automatic driver updating?
