Re: backup software

Bhavya shah
 

Hi Richard,
Bearing in mind that a 30 day trial is available, can't I just create
a disk image and store it on an external flashdrive within a period of
30 days? Is it necessary for the same program to be present to recover
contents from that image, or can the backup extraction be performed
via other utilities?
I have an unclear understanding of backup software, therefore am
unaware of the pertinence of a backup utility such as the one
recommended to the extraction of data from that disk image. I would
really appreciate some light to be shed in this regard.
Thanks.

Good morning,

I use a program called image for windows.

It is not free although,

It works perfectly fine and is nvda friendly.

It is a disk imaging utility and backups your entire drive to a single
image
file,

And it is mountable as a usb drive once it is complete.

The program costs around thirty nine dollars and when I boght it it came
with a three pc licence.

They do offer a thirty day trial.

Let me know if this helps out.

Dear all,
I am required to backup data from my two old Windows 7 laptops, and I
would really appreciate some suggestions on free accessible data

I would truly appreciate any assistance!

Actually here in the UK RNIB and others always use Doc. I think there are
many reasons for it, the converters are not that good, the use of older
hardware is still very high, and as far as I'm aware Dolphin guide users
still have problems with Docx files.
Personally I like RTF, but then I'm perverse that way!

Yes, it's possible, and it's not NVDA or other screen reader specific.

ALT+F, T to open the Options Menu

Down arrow to the Save pane then tab over to the first item, "Save files in
this format:" dropdown box then drop it down with Down Arrow and continue
down arrowing through the list until you find the format you prefer then
select it.

Get to the OK button and activate it and you're set.

The above being said, I would not change from .docx back to .doc without
very good reason. There are plugins for older versions of Word (read: prior
to Word 2007) that allow them to open .docx files. The .docx format has been
the standard since Word 2007 and the vast majority of Word users are on Word
2007 or later.

Re: Is this possible

 

Doc is supported from office 0 right through till office 2003.
However there is no reason you can't get office 2007 and up to save in old doc format all the time, I havn't doodled but you can.
I like rtf, and doc, however not to many things use rtf anymore.
I use text for most things but there is no formats on that one.
Sometimes I use pdfs, at least with the codex program I can write in one format and convert to another for someone else to read.

Re: A serious language problem

Alternatively, if you just hit NVDA + ctrl + V, it should bring up voice dialogue, and you could then just try pressing the first letter of a language you can work with, like E for english, I for icelandic, etc., and see if that helps?

Its a web site you send files to and they send them back converted. I think when I last used it you could attach a file and put commands in either subjector body.

Is this possible

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

Not sure if this is just something we are missing with nvda, or whether its just not possible at all.
Microsoft Word. Is there a dialogue somewhere which allows one to set the default save document format to anything other than docx without changing it manually every time.
My friend like myself hates ribbons and thus far has not turned up a dialogue, which I'd have thought could be got to from some settings or ther. she wants to use doc ie the old system, as they never will need the advanced features of the other format at all and its better for most users who use older machines.

Not sure which word version, think its 2010 or13. They are not that into computers... grin.

Hmm, very interesting. I wonder what is going on. The machine in question is one updated to 10 from 8.1, but since the anniversary update its stopped seeing updates from nvda and also seems to not be able to set restore points from inside programs that do this any more, you have to do them manually.
