Please look in the group archives. See the link at the bottom of the email to get to the groups website. There was a very thorough discussion of using teams earlier this week.

Thanks,

Is there a list of users of audacity and nvda? If so can you give me the link? Your time and help is greatly appreciated.

However, if you want to try a free multitrack recording program that is quite accessible and that is already used by a lot of blind people, there is a blind users list, you may want to try Audacity.  If you want a program that has professional effects and perhaps other features I don’t know about, you may want something else.

CDex has an analogue  recording function  so is perfectly feasible as a recording tool.

Check out the second menu option under Tools – analogue recording where you can set input devices including  choice of microphone and you can also specify sampling rates etc.

CDex is not a recording program.  It is a CD ripping program. 

 

It really isn’t a good idea for people, and I see it when evber such a question is asked, to recommend Goldwave without first knowing what a person wants to do.  Goldwave is not free.  It isn’t expensive unless you don’t have much money and you are on a tight budget, but it does cost something like forty or fifty U.S. dollars. 

 

If you just want to record and edit mp3 files, MP3 Direct Cut is a much better choice.  If you want to record and work with other formats, other programs would be used, MP3 Direct Cut only works with MP3 files but since many people just want to record and edit MP3 files, the way the person wants to use the program needs to be found out before making a recommendation.

Re: WeatherPlus, adding new cities

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Vincent,

You must have an internet connection before you try this.
Try doing the following.

1.  Open the NVDA menu/preferences/Weather plus menu.
2.  Move to the set and manage your cities item and press enter.
3.  In the edit combo box, type the name of your city with either US state or other country's designation for country such as UK for United Kingdom or any other designation and press enter.
4.  A list of cities or perhaps if you are specific enough only one city--hopefully, your location, will appear.
5.  Choose the city you want and press enter.
6.  Wait a few seconds or if sounds are enable until you hear a sound and then tab once.
7.  You should see a test button.
8.  Press enter or space bar on the test button.
9.  You will either hear a sound  and hear your screen reader give an error message or hopefully if you were close enough in your search criteria a city name with associated code.
10.  Then use the tab key to move to either the add button--which will put the city in your list as a temporary city or tab until you hear preset--which will add your city to the current list as the default for your location and press enter.

Then you can go back in if desired using steps one and two of this tutorial and then when in the lis of cities, move to the former location and use the tab key to move to the remove button. Otherwise you can leave the former location as a temporary city if desired.

I have over 100 cities in my list for the USA and world.  It's kind of fun playing with them if you have nothing better to do.  I have the check box under settings set to copy the weather forecast to clipboard when I press the NVDA + W key for forecasts.  What's the weather in Hanoi Vietnam?

In Hanoi vietnam, the forecast for today is scattered thunderstorms with a maximum temperature of 67 and a minimum of 64 degrees Fahrenheit.
sunday 5 april scattered thunderstorms with a maximum temperature of 66 and a minimum of 64 degrees.
Monday 6 scattered thunderstorms with a maximum temperature of 67 and a minimum of 65 degrees.
Tuesday 7 scattered thunderstorms with a maximum temperature of 69 and a minimum of 66 degrees.
Wednesday 8 mostly cloudy with a maximum temperature of 71 and a minimum of 67 degrees.
Thursday 9 mostly cloudy with a maximum temperature of 77 and a minimum of 69 degrees.
Friday 10 thunderstorms with a maximum temperature of 79 and a minimum of 73 degrees.
Saturday 11 thunderstorms with a maximum temperature of 74 and a minimum of 72 degrees.
sunday 12 thunderstorms with a maximum temperature of 76 and a minimum of 71 degrees.
unknown, not available.

I'm using the last version of WeatherPlus with the stable version of NVDA and I don't find how to add new cities, or even change my current city.  Yes, I have moved, so I would appreciate to retrieve up-to-date information about the weather.  When I select "manage temporary cities" it seems I can only select in a list... with only one city (the current selection).  No button to add or remove.  In the "manage cities" settings, there's a simple text field with, again, only one line.  No button to add a new city or search for one.  There was a documentation in this menu before but it seems it has vanished.  Am I missing something?

Re: expanding links that won't expand

Actually in this case these links sometimes fail with jaws as well. In fact I've heard complaints that they often fail with jaws for some reason, the menues do not fly out like they should. Is there an add on for NVDA or a way to improve this in the core? Sorry if I'm using the wrong language, I do not code.

If you issue a certain command, the mouse over link will respond as

page will change in some way and JAWS will tell you if the page

locked Re: Looking for An Antivirus software for my computer

 

Ibrahim,

            It is absolutely still possible to update from Windows 7 to 10 at no cost.  See my step-by-step tutorial:  Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

            Note:  The only difference between the steps to do a repair install/feature update on a machine that already has Windows 10, and an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, is that the steps up to and including kicking off setup.exe will occur under Windows 7.

            I also found the following page at Microsoft indicating that Microsoft Security Essentials can no longer be downloaded, but that definition updates will continue through 2023.  What is Microsoft Security Essentials?

Hi good people:
Please I am looking for a very good antivirus software, that can
effectively work with the screen reader without any problems.
I previously used microsoft security essentials, but microsoft has
stopped supporting windows 7 8 and xp operating systems, and since I
use windows7, the software is now useless because it can not be
updated any longer.
I tried out Avira at a time, but it slowed down my computer seriously,
making it extremely difficult to use the system.  I also tried out
Avast at a time, but it interfered all the time with the screen
reader.  Getting to remove it from my computer was a problem, and I
had to get sighted assistance to do just that for me.
 Right now, my computer is now exposed to risk.
So, please kindly recommend a free antivirus software that will not
slow down my computer, and will not interfere with the functionality
of the screen reader.
Looking forward to read from you lovely people.
Thanking you all in advance.
Ibrahim.

but I assume you know better.

Security Essentials (

getting definition updates at the moment (and I am not certain it is) those
could stop at any moment.

The upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is still available at no cost.
Those who have not migrated to Windows 10 would be well advised to do so as
soon as possible.  Using an unsupported version of Windows is just begging
for disaster.

You are also correct that Windows 8.1 will be supported through January
2023.

Microsoft is still providing definition updates for Windows Security
Essentials. If you are using Windows 7, you should be using that, not
Windows Defender. The Windows Defender you could get for Windows 7 is
not nearly as good a program. The Windows Defender in Windows 10 and
I believe its the same program in Windows 8 is a good program. I
would be very surprised if you can't get definition updates in Windows
8. As far as i Know, Microsoft is still supporting Windows 8.

Re: expanding links that won't expand

Try to focus the menu and bring the mouse to it. It works to me.

I can't really describe this well, but there are links on some pages where if you click them, a menu pops out. I can get this to work on the mac but not that much in windows under nvda 19.2 and 19.3, actually I've ben having the issue since last year. I think they call these fly out menus. I think this is the job of the web dev to fix but is there a work around i"m missing. Here's an example

  1. Go to simmarket.com
  2. I'm not sure if you have to be log in for this but click the my account link. You should see "my wish list, my cart, my orders etc. I cannot get this to expand even after playing with it. Sometimes I can route with nvda backspace but even then after trying that trick the page does not show these options. I'm beginning to go nuts as this is how I can get my keys and stuff for softwares and downloads to updates.

Take care and I hope that helps a bit.

And by the way contacting these devs is not that easy. I've already tried, they don't really care.
