Re: Reinstalling Windows 10

I don't know enough about it to say more.  I don't see why the brand would matter.  But whether you can do it would depend on things such as if your computer is set to be able to boot from a thumb drive or whatever medium you would use.  But beyond that, I don't know enough to discuss the topic further.  I will say that there is a list, TechTalk (spelling) where the owner, who is a very competent tech, can answer questions on the topic.
 
If you are interested in joining, I can send subscription information.

Well you can try a reset, to be honest though it may be time to just
take your box to a shop and ask them to reformat it for you.
I still am a firm believer that a box should run the system it was
designed for for best performance.
So if you ran xp on it it should run that or 7 well you get the picture.
I'd actually be wandering if you either have a virus or something or
simply that your hardwre has issues and it may do.

Hi From what I read on the Microsoft accessibility blog, that narrator will be able to be used during the entire setup process. But who know how long that will take Microsoft to get that working properly.

Important announcement: starting today, some add-ons will require you to upgrade to NVDA 2016.4

 

Hi everyone,

For those using 2016.3 or earlier: there will come a time when some add-ons will ask you to upgrade to NVDA 2016.4 in order for them to function. For my add-ons, I’ll enforce 2016.4 requirement from February 2017 releases:

 

·         StationPlaylist Studio: Version 17.04 (currently listed as 17.1-dev) will require 2016.4 or later. Major parts of this add-on now uses features introduced in 2016.4 (specifically, new user interface routines).

·         Windows 10 App Essentials: Version 17.02 will not run properly under NVDA 2016.3 or earlier. A critical component required to support universal apps and write app modules for them has been included in NVDA 2016.4, thus this is no longer needed in the add-on.

 

Other add-ons that will require you to use NVDA 2016.4 include upcoming versions of Place Markers, Rapid Settings, Clip Contents Designer and others. Also, an add-on called Indentone (by Derek Riemer), used to let you hear indentation via tones, is hereby deprecated and should be removed, as NVDA 2016.4 includes this feature.

 

For add-on writers: I’ll write a formal directive to the add-ons list, but the big picture is: if you are going to use graphical user interfaces such as dialogs, you should use GUI Helper services provided by NVDA 2016.4 or later. Also, you can now write app modules where executable names have a dot in the middle (for that, replace dots with underscores).

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

you don't need to wait for 2017.1, you can download a "next" or "master"
build today: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/

"Next" is the very latest (and possibly not completely stable - be warned)

"Master" should be more solid, with features that are intended for the next
stable release of NVDA.

Using these builds and participating in reporting bugs on GitHub helps us
solve issues and improve the next release of NVDA:

Of course, for most users, the stable version, currently 2016.4, is the

HI Gene, 

Thank you for this. I have an image that I made using the backup option in the control panel. I forget what the actual name of the system utility I used but I think it was Windows backup. Can I use your environment to restore this type of an image?

Thanks again,

Re: How to burn a disk in Windows 10

Albert Ruel
 

In Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 I was able to burn CDs without using any third-party applications, however in windows 10 I have not been able to figure out how to do that without third-party applications. If anyone can show me how windows 10 might allow me to do it I will be most pleased to learn the steps.

Thx, Albert

Re: How to burn a disk in Windows 10

 

Well they are mp3 books, you can't exactly burn the daisy book just like that, but if you create them on the disk drive with all their data structures, then you can just burn them a way that you burn a data disk.

Someone recommended AnyBurn to me and I've used it successfully. I've not been able to burn DAISY books with it though, so they become MP3 books instead.

Maybe this question has already been answared.


When I wanted to burn a cd disk with my cd-burner it doesn't seem to work with Windows 10. What is the most accessible method to create a music cd?


Thanks,

Re: How to burn a disk in Windows 10

 

Well I use free cd burner xp which works for burning cds.
I brought goldwave for 40 bucks which was able to extract cds, its about all I use it for since it uses free cddb which is what nero used to use.

Re: changing the function key

 

Hmmm had this when someone mangled their user account, tried to move it to another location for their network and everything just didn't work at all!
Everything went and died, nothing worked.
I eventually was able to recreate the account, and copy everything back, then after reinstalling a few programs and killing the old account it worked, have you tried creating another account this is just weird,

I would love to do this, but when I get passed the sign on screen nothing happens. NVDA attempts to load. Sometimes the try tone is heard and sometimes not. Narrator will not run when Windows+enter is pressed.
It looks like I am going to be out of work until I can get this fixed.

I do not know if this will work for you, but it worked for me. I just wanted to remap one of my keys to take the place of the application key that was not on my keyboard. I also used it to turn my calf a key into a shift key so I didn't have to make that mistake ever again.

It was really easy to figure out. Hopefully that would help.

Re: Reinstalling Windows 10

 

Well you can try a reset, to be honest though it may be time to just take your box to a shop and ask them to reformat it for you.
I still am a firm believer that a box should run the system it was designed for for best performance.
So if you ran xp on it it should run that or 7 well you get the picture.
I'd actually be wandering if you either have a virus or something or simply that your hardwre has issues and it may do.

Hello Brian,
I would do this if I could, but I cannot use the system at all in it's current state. It is taking minutes for NVDA to respond to a command which should normally take milliseconds. I just don't know what to do here. I've got no sited assistance to help me which makes this problem that much more frustrating.

Re: How to burn a disk in Windows 10

 

Well to be honest cd drives are one of those types that don't have external drivers, they do have drivers but windows usually handles them.
The modern devices most of them that need drivers have them in their software or windows have basic ones for them.
In some cases the inteligent devices some ms hardware does this but logitech will do it to at least thats what I know of, will register in windows, then once the basics are round will either contain the basic drivers as part of their bios and then those will upgrade, or will log on to their various websites, dial home and then install themselves into your system.

What program did you use? What happened? At this point, we don't know if the problem is that the cd drive doesn't have the proper driver and isn't functioning or that you tried to use a program that didn't work or that you used incorrectly.

Re: changing the function key

 

Just tell the people to read out things and tell what happens when you toggle them.
Its how I handled my uncle's del units, tweaking all their settings to optomise them.
