Hi,
I checked out what you suggested and my single navigation keys are on.
Thank you for your input

Re: Navigation keys not working #addonrelease

 

hi.
did you press nvda+shift+space key by accident when you use your
firefox, chrome or other browsers?
when you are in such browsers, press these combination of keys and
nvda should says single letter navigation keys on if its turned off by
accident.
hope that help and God bless you!

Hi gene


I have a nvda log here any how if it is the unknown or pne problem that some have had. mine will be posted any how and if it is yes to all the questions asked i am guessing he is having the same problem but will not know until he fills in some more gaps.


The last person or 2 that had it if it is the same one fixed the problem with the commands i put across the list but did not set it to debug in nvda or save the log so was not caught.

Re: Navigation keys not working #addonrelease

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

hi


if it is the same thing i had a few weeks ago the following will happen. NVDA quick navigation keys will not work in any browser i think only edge.

if you tab along the task bar where the running application section is nvda will say unknown. When you go to use the applications key nvda will not speak as you arrow down the menu and a few other weird things.


If it is the same one can you try and catch it with a log but you will need to do the following first.


In nvdas general settings set the log level to debug it is usually set to info. Then tab down to the ok button and save your settings it may do it automatically?


Next start a fresh copy of nvda in other words turn it off then back on.


Go to the sections where you are having the problem nvda will record your steps. Go into your browsers etc then after that has been done save the log it can be found under the tools section then view log. Press the alt key then save it to yyour desk top. it will need to be added to a ticket which i can find and send later.


If this sounds like the problems you are having in the next email i will put into the email the steps that fixed mine from that ticket.

Hi,
In this case, I’d consider this problem partially resolved (the other program that does require admin privileges is Task Manager).
One way to run a portable copy with admin privileges, although not officially endorsed by NV Access, is:
  1. Find out where the executable lives (the path, that is).
  2. Open Run dialog (Windows+R), then type the path to the executable along with the filename.
  3. Press Control+Shift+Enter.

Just an update to your earlier query:
After consulting with some of the devs, it appears that running NVDA as Administrator will enable XSplit Broadcaster to be read properly.
XSplit Gamecaster on the other hand will be read but it will mostly give the wrong information since it runs on a Web UI.

So where do I go from here?

Subject: [nvda] IMPORTANT ADVISORY: if you are using NVDA 2017.2, do NOT use
Windows 10 App Essentials development snapshots

Dear NVDA community,


The following critical advisory applies to people using Windows 10 App
Essentials add-on with NVDA versions other than latest next or master
snapshots:


Starting from late July 2017, I (the author of the add-on) began warning
people via various channels that they should NOT use Windows 10 App
Essentials development snapshots until NVDA 2017.3 is released, citing
massive code changes required to support the upcoming release. I would like
to reiterate this warning:


If you are using NVDA 2017.2, old master snapshots prior to August 2017
updates, or old next snapshots prior to June 2017, you should better check
the update channel for Windows 10 App Essentials. If the update channel is
set to development, please switch to stable channel, press Enter to save
changes, and press Control+NVDA+C to save settings. In case the add-on isn't
working or there is no 'Windows 10 App Essentials" in NVDA preferences menu,
chances are that the add-on is struggling to load certain components that
are only available in NVDA 2017.3. In this case, you need to manually
install stable build, which can be found at our add-ons website at
addons.nvda-project.org. The latest stable build fixes this so you'll get
updates from stable channel. Even after installing stable build,
double-check add-on update channel to make sure "stable" is the selected
channel and be sure to save settings.


The following components are only available in NVDA 2017.3 and later, some
of which came from this add-on and some the add-on now relies on:


* Search suggestion sounds.
* Live region change announcements.
* Detecting live text changes in Microsoft Edge and other apps.


Also, as I announced a few days ago, I will release Windows 10 App
Essentials 17.08.2 next week that will:


* Present a warning message if you do try to change from stable to
development channel.
* Be the last stable version to run on NVDA 2017.2 and earlier.


I will affirm my promise that I will wait at least a week after release of
NVDA 2017.3 before releasing the next version of the add-on that requires
the upcoming NVDA release. If things go as planned, version 17.09 of Windows
10 App Essentials will hit the air around Labor Day weekend in the United
States (first Monday of September).


Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience.

Cheers,

Joseph

Navigation keys not working #addonrelease

 

Hi,

My Navigation keys do not work when on a web site with internet explorer, Firefox, and google chrome. The keys do work with the edge browser and thunderbird.

I have a new computer with windows ten home 1703 version and I am using NVDA 2017.2. When I purchased the computer I also got office 2016. The store installed the office program. They had some sort of problem in registering the program and I had to do so myself. I don’t know if they attempted to uninstall the program.

My question is if they did uninstall and reinstall office what can I do to get my navigation keys working again?

I am by no means a computer whiz I would appreciate any feedback

Thank you,

Wayne

Hi All,
 
I am using the latest nvda and the latest windows 10.  For some reason when I hit the window key the start menu dosen’t come up.  I needed to find something but, I had to use narrator to do it.  Is anyone else having this problem?  Thanks for any help.Regards, Gary kn4ox

Hi,


I am using NVDA 2017.2 with the latest Win 10. I also use Classic Shell which allows you to use first letter navigation on the start menu, just like you had in Win 7.


After tabbing to the Start button, press enter and the start page comes up with Cortana window, etc.


Hope this is of help?


Re: running nvda in admin mode?

 

Hi,

If you wish to use the file manager method (browsing to the folder where the NVDA executable lives), then you need to first quit NVDA before running another instance (in this case, the portable version) in admin mode.

Is there a reason why you do not wish to install NVDA?

Cheers,

Joseph

So in my case  for example the portable copy path would be d:/apps/nvda/nvda/exe or what ever it's called then do the key stroke? Can I brows to it with my real copy of nvda then  then quite nvda and hit the admin keystroke on my portable exe file? If I have a keystroke to the exe file in my desktop will the keystroke work then?  By the way, I already have it set to run in admin mode via the compatibility wizard. Will that also work?

 

Take care and have a happy Saturday

Hi,

In this case, I’d consider this problem partially resolved (the other program that does require admin privileges is Task Manager).

One way to run a portable copy with admin privileges, although not officially endorsed by NV Access, is:

  1. Find out where the executable lives (the path, that is).
  2. Open Run dialog (Windows+R), then type the path to the executable along with the filename.
  3. Press Control+Shift+Enter.

Cheers,

Joseph

Here is the email i got from the xsplit staff re NVDA. 

Hi Sarah,
Just an update to your earlier query:
After consulting with some of the devs, it appears that running NVDA as Administrator will enable XSplit Broadcaster to be read properly.
XSplit Gamecaster on the other hand will be read but it will mostly give the wrong information since it runs on a Web UI.

So where do I go from here?

Oh? So I can't make a portable version and run its exe in admin mode?  Hmm interesting. Anyone who has xsplit broadcaster besides myself can you try this and see if this works? I can get the support page where you can submit issues as well. They are very good at answering questions Monday to Friday.

 

Take care

Hi,

The real copy must be installed in order for it to run in admin mode.

P.S. Won’t respond to other threads at the moment because a fire has erupted in add-ons repositories (see the next post).

Cheers,

Joseph

No, I want to run my real copy in admin mode then revert, or maybe I can just keep it there for xsplit broadcaster to run correctly, I dunno.. I could use the portalbe copy but  I will have to keep that updated along wiht the snaps I use.

Hi,
If I'm reading this thread correctly, what Sarah might be referring to is a way to launch the portable copy of NVDA with admin privileges (UI Access).
To Sarah: whoever is asking you this question, please tell that person that the only "real" way of running NVDA with admin privileges is installing it.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,


To my knowledge, I don't think so, which is why I've always put the shortcut on the desktop.

I actually don't. Is there a way I can do this from the run dialogue just once then I can revert with  just the normal nvda command? I was going  to ask on the developers list but I seem to have ben removed. I'm using the latest and gratest snap.

Take care

Hi,


If you have NVDA on the desktop, place the focus there and hit the
context menu, from there arrow down to the run as administrator option
hit it and when prompted press alt-y.  Should do the trick.

Hello.  Running xsplit and I talked to one of the devs. They got better accessibility when running nvda in admin mode. How do I run nvda as an administrator again? I forgot.

Using windows 10 over here and the latest snap.
