Is there an echo in here?
I don't know what the program is, but one assumes that the vendors might be the best folk to ask.
Other than that depending on whether its modified systems files and registry or not, you might try revo uninstaller, the uninstaller in windows or similar ways. Be careful with any program if forcing an uninstall though as if it has modified system files and the registry, windows itself could be broken if you do not use the uninstaller which will replace the old registry values and files, hopefully.

People are not like that though. I encounter them every day. They just won't be bothered. I guess the answer really is that each person has to make a decision. I think saying get over it to an elderly person who has enough aggro in their lives already is at best unhelpful at worst, discriminatory. Tact is the thing of course, and sometimes one has to go in and do it for them, as the world and changes in it is just far too much for many people I find.
I have made a conscious decision I do not need Twitface and their ilk in my life. I'm sure there are positives to these systems, but one has to weigh up the pros and cons for you, and so it is with the mail lists.
You say it does not work, but I have found it can if one chooses the right parameters in the first place.
However I'm not going to fill this list up with this argument, I know enough about people to realise there are opinions about things from some of us which will never change, so why bother?

Of course in my personal view, the amount of non nvda conversations here

The problem being that this never, ever works. Groups such as this one, even though they have a specific central subject, are social ecosystems. People get to know each other over time and want to make a comment on something "random" or ask a cohort of people they trust about something that's not the central topic of the group. There's absolutely nothing wrong with either of those things so long as they do not dominate the group.

Tools such as the ones I posted about have come into existence because it is impossible, not to mention impractical, to set up mailing lists that have some laser focused topic and have them thrive yet still allow those who want to filter out what they consider "junk" to do it easily.

The tools are there. You have to decide whether you want to use them or not. You will never distill any e-mailing list down to only what you think belongs on it unless you, for any you, are its one and only member.

As to whether or not someone is happy using a web interface for one-time configuration at this point in time, my only response is: Get over it. It's time to configure yourself to the world, as the world is not going to configure itself to you.

Re: Has NVDA 2017.2 RC1 been made available?

Quentin Christensen
 

I sent this reply to the user directly, but it is worth sharing with the list (the question was whether 2017.2 final is out):

In short, probably in a week or so.

NVDA 2017.2rc1 is currently out.  If we don't find any major bugs in this build, then the final NVDA 2017.2 should be out in the next week or so and will be identical to the current RC.  If someone does find a major bug, then we'll endeavour to fix and release RC2 which we'll make available for a week or so for people to test and see if it's fixed that bug and not added too many more in before we finalise 2017.2.

In an earlier In-Process back when we were in RC for NVDA 2017.1, I wrote a little on the development cycle and how we get to the point of releasing a new build which may be of interest: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/in-process-16th-feb-2017/

Kind regards

Re: NVDA 2017 error

Quentin Christensen
 

Just a little follow up from me - instead of completely deleting NVDA and reinstalling, you should be able to press NVDA+CONTROL+R three times quickly to restore NVDA to factory settings (and the eSpeak NG voice, which at least won't give errors).

As others noted, it's almost certainly the case that the issue is caused by TrueVoice being licensed to Zoomtext or another program which does not allow it to be used outside that environment.  It's a little annoying when programs install a synthesizer as a standard SAPI 4 or 5 etc synthesizer, but then don't allow it to be used by any other program that can use a standard SAPI 4 or 5 synth.  Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do to detect this before the synth is activated and causing problems.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Uninstalling NVDA won't fix this, because it doesn't delete the user
configuration.
The easiest way to fix this is:
1. Press Windows+r to bring up the Run dialog.
2. Type: %appdata%\nvda
3. Press enter.
4. Find nvda.ini and delete it.

This won't remove your addons, just the configuration file which tells NVDA
which synthesizer is currently active.

Re: NVDA 2017.2 RC1 and Edge, a navigation problem

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Felix,

Can you advise whether you experienced the same thing with earlier versions of NVDA or whether this is new in the RC build?

I just tried and what seems to happen is I can tab around, but as soon as I press H or 1 or other keys, NVDA stops reading, and then shortly after, the page reloads.  I can repeat that a couple of times before Edge gives me a message saying: "

This page is having a problem loading

We tried to load this page for you a few times, but there is still a problem with this site. We know you have better things to do than to watch this page reload over and over again so try coming back to this page later."


That seems to behave exactly the same way using NVDA 2017.1 and NVDA 2017.2rc1


I see you've reported it and Jamie is on to reporting it to Microsoft: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7206


Regards


Quentin.

I know from Firefox and Chrome experience that there are lots of headings, but when I then press h nothing happens, and afterwards navigation with the arrow keys stops working. I am reluctant to assume a bug as I assume heading navigation has been tested extensively for this RC. Any ideas what might be going on?

As others have said, the release candidate is out.  If we don't find any really big bugs in that, then the final 2017.2 will look identical be out in a week or so.  If we do encounter any showstopping bugs, then we'll endeavour to fix them, put out 2017.2rc2 and reset for another week or so.

Hi everyone,

Just to follow up on the comments re the NV Access site.  Yes, we are aware it has outgrown its current setup.  As many of you know, we are (slowly) going through a rebranding (same name, new logo), and part of that is a new website.  The new site is currently being worked on and unfortunately isn't ready yet.

I'll be sure and pass on when the new site is ready to explore!

Basically its certainly working.
 When you click the link in the email you go to the blog post which
describes the changes and has a link to the normal download site.
 This then presents you with an option to donate, If you select  not this
time there, ust below the donate options, you just enter your email chooses

if you want email updates then the download link is active and it works fine

from there. its exactly the same as with the full version
.
They like to track downloads  for  data purposes,which is why they ask for
the email and do not promote downloads from the snapshot pages. Of course if

you go to the snapshot page, you get a version of the RC but not the release

version of it, ie it still has error noise etc.
 As the RC is meant to be exactly like the release it uses the same download

procedure.

I hope this helps new people. Its a slight annoyance to go via the donation

and registration page but no passwords are needed and you can opt  out of
emails and you do not have to donate. In my view, simply moving the  not now

link to above the donation options would have been better from the logical
layout point of view.

Re: there is a better driver for the hims smartbeetle

 

Hi,
If you've attached it, it got lost. Also, I believe NV Access has experimented with this driver, and last time I checked, they had mixed results.
Cheers,
Joseph

no, i had replaced the driver after that all was working properly.

before i've tryed but that was the same old problem, it was not possible to go back with the left scrol key.

i was hopeful there was a better driver in this new version but there was'nt.

so i have deleted the original version of HansoneConnect.dll and replaced it with my version.

here it is.

hello, there is a better version for the hims braille displays like the smartbeetle.

the version that is delivered with nvda there are problems in it.

when you press scroll down, the display will go to the right, but when i press theleft scrol up, nothing happens.

this is one of the examples i want to mention.

per haps it is possible that the better driver will be implemented in the new version of nvda.

i'll send here the new driver that works nice.

now, every time i update nvda i have to replace the file
HansoneConnect.dll

if you want, i can send you the file.

cheers

Re: Focus Highlighter

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi William,

Focus Highlight should just work without needing too much interaction (it is a purely visual indication on screen of where the focus currently is).

The following colors are used by this addon:

  • Green jagged line, to indicate the navigator object.
  • Red thin rectangle, to indicate the focused object/control.
  • Red thick rectangle, to indicate when navigator object and focused object are overlapping.
  • Blue thick rectangle with thin slashes, to indicate NVDA is in focus mode, i.e. key types are passed to the control.
Otherwise, what problems are you having with it?

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi,

I am presently trying to use the Focus Highlighter Add-on in a sort of haphazard way.
Can anyone help me to use it in a more constructive way to get the most out of the add-on.
Regards,

William

OK.  I'm just used to seeing an RC1 (and, on rare occasions, an RC2) come out prior to the main release and that post made me think I might have missed it when I was on vacation.

Dennis L <dennisl1982@...>
 

Hi, how do I prevent NVDA or any screen reader from  saying something like m.yahoo when I start to type an address into the address bar?  I would love to get rid of all search engines but I don’t see how this is possible I looked under search.  I’m using latest Firefox  any help is appreciated.
