Re: Disabling png attachments in Mail app for windows 10

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

The png format was invented to deal with copyright/patent issues that existed at the time in other formats. The png format is 100 percent copyright/patent free, so you can use it at any time, and for any reason without fear of reprisals from big companies who might decide they want a piece of your distribution dollars. It's completely free to use, and there are no strings attached of any kind. That's why it was developed, and that's what it's for. Gif and jpg have their own issues, but png was built specifically to aliviate all those issues, and so that's why it's used, though probably not as widely as the developers would have hoped I fear. :)
png stands for portable network graphics,.

Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

I don't use duxbury, but I don't have the described behavior with task manager. I'm using windows 8.1, and task manager is not slow at all, no matter which screen reader I use, NVDA, narrator, or jaws. (don't have window-eyes) Perhaps it's a windows 10 thing? or perhaps your version of task manager is flawed, though over multiple computers, this is highly unlikely. All I can tell you, is that this isn't a universal problem, so ....

Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

For interest's sake, or if it makes any difference, if I switch over to a microsoft voice, under NVDA using the SAPI 5 synthesizer, then it's always somewhat sluggish/laggy, in both task manager, or even if just moving line to line in a text file in notepad, but, my primary synth/TTS engine is eSpeak NG, and, that's one of the most responsive TTS engines - seems that way to me, and, partly why it's always my primary screen reader of choice with NVDA.


But, task manager doesn't seem to be offering any more sluggishness than other interfaces on my side - and, if means much, this is on a lenovo w52 laptop, running windows 10 pro 64 bit.

Re: Disabling png attachments in Mail app for windows 10

 

Tea,

          And I doubt you'll have the outcome you hope for.  People, lots of people, wish to be able to attach PNG files just like they do JPG, GIF, and a multitude of others.

          I don't know what you mean by "disable automatic attachments in png format," [emphasis on automatic is mine]. Other than when graphics are used as part of a signature I don't know of any instance where attachments are automatic. They must be placed intentionally by the person sending the e-mail message.

Pauline,

        PNG is short for Portable Network Graphics, one of many types of image files.

        I have no idea if there's a way to block them as an attachment and it would be relatively unusual to do so, since image files are one of the most frequently attached regardless of their file format.

As far as Windows media Player is concerned, it has a remarkably good rapid

Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

I sometimes think this tends to happen on laptops due to their slower cpus to save power when things get busy. the UIA interface seems slow on many machines and we have no way to know if narrator is actually doing something internal to get around this problem. Often making idle rates on processors to be less slow can speed things up a lot. Task manager etc, do refresh quite often and one supposes anyting monitoring resources will also.

The worst things I've been encountering lately is some kind of emails generated by webkit where most of the first few pages is formatting and apple specific links and codes that mean nothing to an email client not running on an apple device.

I would check to make sure the files are numbered correctly and I would also check any settings such as shuffle to make sure they are off. I don't think the procedure given in the below message will work better than the other procedures described in the original message. They are just different ways of doing the same thing. You can try the procedure given, but I think the problem may be in the numbering or in some setting in the program.

Holger,

Then you should be able to accomplish this after you've opened VLC by:

1. Hitting CTRL+F to open the "Select Folder" dialog.

2. Navigate to the folder that contains the entire book's folder, select the book's folder in the dialog.

3. Activate the "Select Folder" button at the bottom of the dialog.

4. All chapters of the book should load into the play list area and begin playing with the first chapter (that is provided the chapter media files are numbered correctly, and I have little doubt that they are).

Holger,

Then you should be able to accomplish this after you've opened VLC by:

1. Hitting CTRL+F to open the "Select Folder" dialog.

2. Navigate to the folder that contains the entire book's folder, select the book's folder in the dialog.

3. Activate the "Select Folder" button at the bottom of the dialog.

4. All chapters of the book should load into the play list area and begin playing with the first chapter (that is provided the chapter media files are numbered correctly, and I have little doubt that they are).

Re: Problems with Adobe Acrobat Reader

Don't you get asked if you want to open just the current page or all pages? The latter takes a long time on big documents.
I have to say though that there seem to be so many very poorly made pdf files around nowadays my heart sinks if I see pdf is the only medium offered.

Re: Accessibility of online banking service for NVDA users

Well it changes like the weather. I really do not know why companies like banks don't leave stuff alone when it works, but they don't and so when you suddenly log in and find its all changed so you cannot get at your own money, you end up or at least I do, either visiting a branch or doing it by telephone. I have to say that this eternal twiddling with interfaces winds up sighted people as well so who decides its a good idea is anyones guess
I speak as I find and my bank seems to think picture pdfs of bank statements are fine. ha ha.

Subject: [nvda] Accessibility of online banking service for NVDA users


Hello,

Do you know which banks are providing the most accessible online banking
services for NVDA users? Is there any papers about the accessibility of
online banking services or any research or discussion about that?
Thanks a lot,

Hello,
thanks for the suggestion, I'm considering filing a ticket at some point. It's just that my usual approach is to first enter informal discussion to gather some data points before I officially cry bug.
Kind regards,
Felix

Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

Hello

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 to use Task Manager.

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

Kind regards

Christo
