Hi How well does the facebook messenber app work with nvda? I thought about downloading it from the windows store on my pc, but was wondering if the accessibility issues were fixed yet.

Hi


I know there was talk about one for NVDA but as far as I know there is not one and no add on for one either for nvda.

The following link will tell you a little bit more on where it is at present not any where at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/2111

My self and other some one said a while ago if this could be done for NVDA like crowd funded I am pretty sure there were people who would put in for it..


I use an android phone with talk back and it has it own graphics labeler built into it, the apple i phone and other screen readers I have used have it built in as well. I did not think I would use it much on my android phone, but when you can make that app usable by labeling the button etc, it is worth it.


A while ago there was a guy that did a netdrive.pie file which if I remembered rightly could do something like that, but might have only done it for the one object???? I am not sure if he went any further on it, but I think it is the same file I still have here on my pc.

Hi


I wonder if some how you have restricted where the mouse goes. I was
just looking through the commands and saw these 2.


I do not use the mouse hardly and when I do now I use a touch pad, so it
moves the pointer to where my finger is.


The commands are below.


nvda+win+c: select the level of movement. nvda+win+r: toggle mouse
restriction.


it might be a matter of unrestricting what theyare set to.

Hi,
I am having a problem with Golden Cursor, my favorite add on by far.
Yesterday, it stopped moving the mouse pointer when pressing the arrow
keys. Everything else with it works, like reporting the position where
the mouse pointer is. I uninstalled it, and installed it again, and it
still will not move the mouse around the screen with the arrow keys. I
tried version 1.1, and the development version, and they both do this.
I was using the mouse 50 percent of the time, just by moving the mouse
pointer with the arrow keys. Let me know if any of you are
experiencing this problem, and if so, have you been able to fix it
some way.
Take care, guys,

Are these the ones you just downloaded or ones that were there before.
Also
if they were there before which version of nvda was running at the time?
I have found at times that I've had to delete and reinstall add ons if
there has been an nvda update in between. Its not always the case but
sometimes. My guess is that some settings got screwed with or something.

Re: [NVDA] NVDA and Windows 10

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

You can just use never10 of course. Its a simple toggle.
Then you still get the regular normal windows updates. I have also uninstalled the nag update and hidden it. Not that hard to do.
However on my machine which has windows 10/ classic shell on it, I wonder how one is supposed to review updates being offered. I've seen what is installed afterwards, but it seems pretty silent on the updates its quietly downloading and installing. The only time you notice is when you try to shut down and it spends ages fiddling about till it goes off.

I was wondering what happens when the anniversary update comes along next month. Is that machine going to get it and spend ages installing a new version without telling me I wonder?

Not having the optional updates selected in windows update on windows 7 64 bit pro I found is the easiest way to avoid the upgrade to windows 10 nag.

Another machine said this so they answered yes and nothing happened until everyone had forgotten and the date came and it started to update.
Myself I have now used never 10 on the two machines running 7, though since removing the windows update that cased the nags I've not seen this prompt as described. its got something also to do with that setting windows anytime upgrade as well I am told but I turned off messages ago.

I know there's a free upgrade available, but it's the user's choice whether to
accept it.

If Microsoft have stated that this will one day become a compulsory upgrade,
please point me to any reference confirming this.

Does anyone want to recommend a free antivirus program that works well
with NVDA?

Thanks,

Re: [NVDA] NVDA and Windows 10

Not having the optional updates selected in windows update on windows 7 64 bit pro I found is the easiest way to avoid the upgrade to windows 10 nag.

All I can tell you is that our charity office had the we are going to update your machine to windows 10 on, and a date, is this OK to the operator hit no, and went and had a cup of tea, only to find it mid way into the update when she got back. Another machine said this so they answered yes and nothing happened until everyone had forgotten and the date came and it started to update.
Myself I have now used never 10 on the two machines running 7, though since removing the windows update that cased the nags I've not seen this prompt as described. its got something also to do with that setting windows anytime upgrade as well I am told but I turned off messages ago. I now have a very long list of not critical but suggested updates I could install. it installs the critical ones without asking of course.

Are you suggesting that Microsoft will at some point forcibly upgrade people's
machines from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10?

I know there's a free upgrade available, but it's the user's choice whether to
accept it.

If Microsoft have stated that this will one day become a compulsory upgrade,
please point me to any reference confirming this.


Thanks,


Antony.
