Re: OT uninstalling office damages windows7

 

I have had the same issue there are fixits that are supposed to be able to remove things but in my case thats not worked so well either.

The way I eventually got round this was installing a newer version of office with the oneclick package manager and it worked though still had issues.

The only reason I havn't done anything is because the user of that system in question can get round the display issues he is having at work and on the cloud.

It appears office does something during uninstall, maybe a file deregister and maybe more things.

A search on the net doesn't find out what exactly is going on and I spent several days looking.

Just reformat and the problem will go away.

Then don't uninstall office, whoever broke office uninstall should be shot

I have a friend who uninstalled microsoft office2010 using windows7 control panel uninstaller from a windows7 64bit machine.

And is there a propper way to uninstall microsoft office without damaging your windows OS?

Oh yeah, I don't know if this is a place to ask if it does. I do have one
and I use it. If you want to listen to files on your phone you go in. swipe
to whatever folder you want and whom you share with. Once you get the file.
You double tap to play it. Not sure how it would work on and Android that
uses NVDA

Uninstalling MS Office

Carlos
 

Hello All!

There seem to be many issues with uninstalling MS Office from machines that run Win 7. Other mailing lists are full of posts on how bad it can get when you uninstall MS Office from a Win 7 machine.

I am using a Win 8.1 machine. And, earlier today I uninstalled MS Office 365 as my brother is sending me a legal copy of MS Office 2003!

I had no issues with the uninstall as I used a program called Bulk Crap Uninstaller. Again, I emphasize I am on Win 8.1, NVDA 2017.1, and my machine is only three years old!

I have an idea that the Win 7 authentication process might be at fault here. I had some issues with that when my machine had Win 7 installed! So, at the first chance came to upgrade to Win 8.1. I upgraded immediately and installing and uninstalling programs has not had any issues since then!

I am sorry for all those who have nightmares when their machines go away when trying to uninstall MS Office!

Thank You! For taking the time to read my thoughts on this issue!

Re: Doing proposals for new functionality

 

NVDA/NVAccess code development is managed on Github.  You must open a Github account, which is free, before you can submit requests, trouble tickets, etc., to the NVDA development team.

The page for doing that is:   https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues 

I do not know if it's Github, or NVAccess, or a combination of the two but the documentation on Github regarding the process for adding a feature request, reporting a problem, or the like is virtually non-existent - or it is on the page where one is supposed to do this.  I imagine you'd start a new issue and noting at the start of the issue name something like "Feature Suggestion:"

I'd also use the search box that shows up at the top, and is pre-populated with the search terms "is:issue is:open" to add several keywords that pertain to what you intend to propose in case it is already proposed.  Better to add on to an existing issue if you have specific additions than to create a new one.

Is there any reason you want to use the VLC player? For straight
listening, I much prefer Winamp and Winamp will probably play things in
order.



As far as Windows media Player is concerned, it has a remarkably good
rapid listening feature that allows you to speed up speech while leaving
the pitch constant. It is much better than the one you can use with
Winamp or the one in VLC Player.

Holger,

You need to change your default app for Music Player. If you
hit the WinKey and immediately type "default app" the Default app settings
pane should be the first thing returned in the results. Open that and
then find "Music Player" and change it from Windows Media Player to VLC.

hi
I have a friend who uninstalled microsoft office2010 using windows7
control panel uninstaller from a windows7 64bit machine. After the
uninstall, windows7 was damaged almost to the point where its unuseable
and office2010 will not reinstall. system restore won't work either. Has
anyone ever heard of such a case? And is there a propper way to
uninstall microsoft office without damaging your windows OS?

thanks

Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

Jacob Kruger
 

If that might be relevant, one of the first bits of windows configuration I generally do is turn off any form of battery saving/power management - I will let screen turn off after 20 minutes of inactivity, but, every other power management/saving feature gets disabled, but anyway.


Stay well

I also do not see sluggishness in windows 7, and as has been said before I cannot at present do w10 test as the machine blew up and I'm ttoo chepskate to get it replaced just now.
I did used to find though that the power saving throttling back routines for the processor in 10, seemed to have much more impact on nvda than in most earlier windows versions.


As I said before, maybe its the constant updating coupled with the throttling that nvda does not like.

If I hit ctrl+shift+escape right now on my win10 64 bit creators
version, running current NVDA next snapshot, it works fine in the task
manager, is just as responsive as anywhere else, etc. etc.


Only issue have always had with windows 10 task manager is trying to
switch between what would have rendered as pages under windows 7 -
tasks/applications, processes, startup, etc., but anyway.

I can confirm Felix's issue. I also find Task Manager so sluggish with
NVDA that I first close NVDA and fire up Narrator when it is necessary

The same behaviour is true also in the activation dialogue in DBT
(Duxbury).

Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

 

Yes nvda and task manager of late is really slow to get started nvda simi crashes with it but if I doodle with it a little it then works.

Re: VLC player app and W10

 

The only things I have had to install are the real codecs from andrelouis.com

And the klite mega codec package which contains just about everything you need.

The hackers that put this together seem to have a hand in media player classic and vlc as well as a few extras.

Like everything there are google and other toolbars but thats a small price to pay for something I use and bar donations they don't ask for any cash at all.

I would use it if I didn't want to install various codecs to use with another player for movies. But for just listening to straight audio, such as Mp3 files, Winamp is more intuitive. Left and right arrow moves you back and forward. You don't use control left and right arrow as in VLC Player. Preferences works better, at least with NVDA and I suspect with other screen-readers as well. If I want to change something in preferences, I often change it and then I have to tab and shift tab to hear what the field now says. I don't know how jump to time works in VLC Player. In Winamp, you type control j, enter a time, and press enter. I submit that one reason Winamp is still used so widely by blind people is for reasons such as I've discussed. There is no reason to only use one program in all sorts of areas. You often get benefits by using more than one program such as a player or a browser or a screen-reader.

I love the VLC media player, because it also plays movies so well, that traci goes on about the picture, and the sound is unbelievable. VLC plays any format I can think of, and you can customize it so much..

As far as where to get it, one place is

Winamp is easier and more intuitive. And I can get to play things in proper order.


I have VLC Player in case I want it to play something Winamp can't, but I almost never use it.

Is there any reason you want to use the VLC player? For straight listening, I much prefer Winamp and Winamp will probably play things in order.


As far as Windows media Player is concerned, it has a remarkably good rapid listening feature that allows you to speed up speech while leaving the pitch constant. It is much better than the one you can use with Winamp or the one in VLC Player.

Yes. I know but I like VLC instead of WM player. I was hoping someone knew how to fix this. In the old VLC there was a setting that I could go to check something to make sure so it will play in order.

Holger,

You need to change your default app for Music Player. If you hit the WinKey and immediately type "default app" the Default app settings pane should be the first thing returned in the results. Open that and then find "Music Player" and change it from Windows Media Player to VLC.
