Quentin Christensen
 

Nasrin,

Thank you kindly for your continued blessings!

Regarding the issues you have logged, we are aware that issues are being logged faster than we have been able to resolve them, and we apologise for that.  A few months ago, a new team member, Reef, came on board, who is doing fabulous work triaging and resolving many issues and we are hopeful that from his work, you will see many improvements.  Indeed, his input, along with Mick and Jamie, has already seen many improvements in 2016.4.

Kind regards

Quentin.

People are assuming that a tech, physically working with the computer,
can do more diagnostics than someone remoting into the computer as
Microsoft Accessibility does. Maybe yes, maybe no. I don't know but
I don't think people should be so sure and definite in making
prescriptions about how to have the computer checked or what to do or
what not to do. We are not techs. We are giving laymen's answers.
If you really want expert advice, ask on a site like Bleeping

Hello David,



Every 2 or 3 weeks, I get a call from someone with a heavy East Indian
accent saying that they are from Microsoft and that they have been
alerted that I have a serious virus issue on my computer. They want
me to let them remote in to my system. This has been a scam that has
been affecting the blind community a great deal as reported on several
technical lists I am subscribed to. I simply hang up. Microsoft
never calls you unsolicited for anything at all.



Could this guy have access to your computer since you let him in already?
That is hard to say. He may have access if you have a static IP address.
He may have planted something on your system during the brief time he
was connected. The only way to be sure is to have a computer
expert/technician of some sort analyze your system. I would start
with the Microsoft website/phone number that have been referenced on this

list.



Good luck.

Hi guys,

I will give you a quick over view and ask some very important questions.
Here it is:

Well, I typed in a web site, and my small laptop started talking in a
different voice saying to call a number from Microsoft before turning
off my computer. It gave a number that sounded a lot like microsoft. I
called and my wife let them have access, to my computer by typing in a
number and other info. and he would not say what company he was from,
but he said he was a third party working with Microsoft. He began
drawing lines on my screen, and told my wife that I had to pay money to
clean my computer from this virus.
My wife told him that she was calling the police, and he hung up.
However, he was still connected to my computer. I did a quick scan
with Windows defender, and it said that I have no problems. I clicked
off of all of what he had on the screen. Can he get back into my
computer at any time? Could there be a virus still on my computer?
What is the number to Microsoft accessability? I called a Microsoft
number, and they said they were the geek squad and I would have to pay
for them to do anything, but yet he said it was Microsoft. What should I
do now?

Take care, guys, I am still shaken up. I would had just blown it off,
but the message that came up said Microsoft, and it was one number off
from a Microsoft sales number.

People are assuming that a tech, physically working with the computer,
can do more diagnostics than someone remoting into the computer as
Microsoft Accessibility does. Maybe yes, maybe no. I don't know but
I don't think people should be so sure and definite in making
prescriptions about how to have the computer checked or what to do or

Hello David,



Every 2 or 3 weeks, I get a call from someone with a heavy East Indian
accent saying that they are from Microsoft and that they have been
alerted that I have a serious virus issue on my computer. They want
me to let them remote in to my system. This has been a scam that has
been affecting the blind community a great deal as reported on several
technical lists I am subscribed to. I simply hang up. Microsoft
never calls you unsolicited for anything at all.



Could this guy have access to your computer since you let him in already?
That is hard to say. He may have access if you have a static IP address.
He may have planted something on your system during the brief time he
was connected. The only way to be sure is to have a computer
expert/technician of some sort analyze your system. I would start
with the Microsoft website/phone number that have been referenced on this list.



Good luck.

Hi guys,

I will give you a quick over view and ask some very important questions.
Here it is:

Well, I typed in a web site, and my small laptop started talking in a
different voice saying to call a number from Microsoft before turning
off my computer. It gave a number that sounded a lot like microsoft. I
called and my wife let them have access, to my computer by typing in a
number and other info. and he would not say what company he was from,
but he said he was a third party working with Microsoft. He began
drawing lines on my screen, and told my wife that I had to pay money to clean my computer from this virus.
My wife told him that she was calling the police, and he hung up.
However, he was still connected to my computer. I did a quick scan
with Windows defender, and it said that I have no problems. I clicked
off of all of what he had on the screen. Can he get back into my
computer at any time? Could there be a virus still on my computer?
What is the number to Microsoft accessability? I called a Microsoft
number, and they said they were the geek squad and I would have to pay
for them to do anything, but yet he said it was Microsoft. What should I do now?

Take care, guys, I am still shaken up. I would had just blown it off,
but the message that came up said Microsoft, and it was one number off
from a Microsoft sales number.

Windows update

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

Does anyone kknow if the newer version of windows update is infarct working like a torrent program,rather than a straight downloader?
I ask as after this last download of updates the windows update service operated by svchost.exe or whatever its called in newer windows seems to be generating times when its using a whole core at 100 percent
. a laptop with an Intel core duo was very slow and I was about to blame the new nvda till I looked at task manager and saw an almost constant 50 percent usage which vanished if I stopped automatic updates, and a tool I have on my internet connection showed that data was flowing both ways.

No virus, no malware just really annoying. so be aware of this possibility on some processors or machines. maybe its a bug in the latest microsoft update but being of a suspicious nature it almost looks like my downloads of updates are being streamed back out to who knows where.

Hi all,
I updated to NVDA 2016.4 without a problem as well. I notice that it is
snappier in mail, MS word, and the news app for win10. Great job, and NVDA
is getting to be the screen reader that I use a little more than JAWS now,
because of the mouse pointer movement capabilities and being to route the
pointer to the review cursor. I use that a lot to click on things that enter
will not activate with JAWS. Thanks a lot, all of you.

I upgraded with no problem. Looks like NVDA has been greatly improved
thanks to the hard work of the developers.
My expectation was that there would be input table for UEB.
In what's new it says:

• Updated liblouis braille translator to 3.0.0. This includes
significant enhancements to Unified English Braille. (

I have no idea wath improvements were made as it is a very obscure
statement.
Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed for the next release.
Although my main screen reader is NVDA, I still use JAWS as a backup
because of UEB output and input tables.
Keep up the good work.

Mentioning Friends on Facebook (Mobile)

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,
I find the usual More>Tag Friends>Suggestions>... procedure extremely
long-winded to mention friends using m.facebook.com. I am told by
sighted individuals that one can mention friends simply by entering
their name in the post itself, and clicking on simultaneously
appearing Facebook mention suggestions, or something of the sort.
Could someone explain how this could be achieved using NVDA on

Hello David,



Every 2 or 3 weeks, I get a call from someone with a heavy East Indian
accent saying that they are from Microsoft and that they have been
alerted
that I have a serious virus issue on my computer. They want me to let
them
remote in to my system. This has been a scam that has been affecting
the
blind community a great deal as reported on several technical lists I am
subscribed to. I simply hang up. Microsoft never calls you unsolicited
for
anything at all.



Could this guy have access to your computer since you let him in
already?
That is hard to say. He may have access if you have a static IP
address.
He may have planted something on your system during the brief time he
was
connected. The only way to be sure is to have a computer
expert/technician
of some sort analyze your system. I would start with the Microsoft
website/phone number that have been referenced on this list.



Good luck.

Hi guys,

I will give you a quick over view and ask some very important questions.
Here it is:

Well, I typed in a web site, and my small laptop started talking in a
different voice saying to call a number from Microsoft before turning off
my
computer. It gave a number that sounded a lot like microsoft. I called
and
my wife let them have access, to my computer by typing in a number and
other
info. and he would not say what company he was from, but he said he was
a
third party working with Microsoft. He began drawing lines on my screen,
and
told my wife that I had to pay money to clean my computer from this
virus.
My wife told him that she was calling the police, and he hung up.
However,
he was still connected to my computer. I did a quick scan with Windows
defender, and it said that I have no problems. I clicked off of all of
what
he had on the screen. Can he get back into my computer at any time?
Could
there be a virus still on my computer? What is the number to Microsoft
accessability? I called a Microsoft number, and they said they were the
geek
squad and I would have to pay for them to do anything, but yet he said
it
was Microsoft. What should I do now?

Take care, guys, I am still shaken up. I would had just blown it off,
but
the message that came up said Microsoft, and it was one number off from
a
Microsoft sales number.

Re: NVDA 2016.4 released #nvdasr

Hi all,

I updated to NVDA 2016.4 without a problem as well. I notice that it is snappier in mail, MS word, and the news app for win10. Great job, and NVDA is getting to be the screen reader that I use a little more than JAWS now, because of the mouse pointer movement capabilities and being to route the pointer to the review cursor. I use that a lot to click on things that enter will not activate with JAWS. Thanks a lot, all of you.

I upgraded with no problem. Looks like NVDA has been greatly improved

thanks to the hard work of the developers.

My expectation was that there would be input table for UEB.

In what's new it says:

 

• Updated liblouis braille translator to 3.0.0. This includes

significant enhancements to Unified English Braille. (

 

I have no idea wath improvements were made as it is a very obscure statement.

Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed for the next release.

Although my main screen reader is NVDA, I still use JAWS as a backup

because of UEB output and input tables.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks a lot, Louise!

I did so, and my computer was great! I got off the phone before the scammer could do anything. Wow, I jumped up and down when MS said that I was okay.

Hi I still would call the Microsoft desk at 1 800 936 5900 as they can do scans that can make sure that your computer is okay. It sounds like it is but would you want to take a chance that it isn’t okay. I also would change all passwords and if you have a user name for the computer have help changing it so they can’t get into the computer.

 

I don’t think you have a problem but taking small steps like changing passswords would help you feel better over all.

 

I get calls also but I hadn’t seen yours before by message on the computer so thanks for sharing with us all as I learned the latest one thanks Louise and princess Kiara

That is not good. Sounds like I would call the police because the computer could probbally have a virus on it. Or you can always call the Microsoft disability desk.
