Also, if you haven't done so, trying Firefox on many sites you use might produce surprising results.  You might find that Firefox is faster on enough sites that you might want to use it as your main browser.  I'm not saying you will.  But I'm saying that you may and that that was my experience. 

 

Also, Firefox has more plugins and one or two features you may value once you try them such as the document reader feature in the view menu.  When you are on a page that contains an article, you will find article view in the view menu.  Press enter on it and see what happens.  You will automatically leave article view, as I recall, when you open another page.  It eliminates a great deal of extraneous text on pages with articles.

You know what sites one person has reported that they have problems.  That may or may not mean you will.  One person's report about such problewms is not enough information to generalize from.  If a site doesn't work properly or well with one browser, it may with another.  That should be one of the things you try routinely.

Hello:

I have bought a license for the Vocaliser voices but when I try and install the driver (version 3.0.12) I get an error message when I try to install it via the Preferences and synthesizer settings. It simply says that it could not load the Vocaliser synthesizer.

My laptop is running Windows 10 and the version of NVDA that I am running is 2016.1

I have tried uninstalling and re installing the driver and uninstalling and re installing NVDA itself but with no luck.

Can anyone suggest any solutions.

That add on has been broken for months now.  I haven 't heard of any attempt to fix it.


Try Q Translate:

It is relatively accessible.

NVEDA sort of half locking up when working with firefox

Jacob Kruger
 

Had firefox 43 here, since before new version of webvisum, you couldn't install un-signed add-ons, but, also now just upgraded firefox to 46, and this was since NVDA 2016.1 and 2016.2 RC1 both seemed to be locking up at times, while working in firefox, with various sites' content.
 
Have also tried turning off/on the F123 add-on, in case it and NVDA wre interfering with each other, but, doesn't seem to make a difference.
 
Could also maybe try uninstalling both F123 and webvisum add-ons, in case, their form of interaction, etc. might be causing hassles, but, thought might as well ask here if anyone has ideas on what to try?
 
And, when I say locking up, at times, it won't help alt-tabbing away from firefox to another app, since NVDA will stay quiet, but, funny enough what seems to help the quickest is to launch narrator, using windows key + enter key, since this is on my windows 10 64 bit machine.
 
Do you think there might be something useful in the NVDA log - NVDA + F1 right after NVDA starts speaking again?
 
Alternatively, any other thoughts/suggestions on what to try get rid of this - besides browsing web content often enough, my primary job is as a web developer, so I have to spend a lot of time testing/trying out various bits of my own code output in a browser, and firefox is my favourite for that part of it thus far, although I do, at times use both google chrome and IE11 - that one crashes on it's own way too often to be any form of feasible alternative, but, that's probably due to it not really being meant to be used under windows 10 as such?

Re: NVDA keeps announcing "Pane"!

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

Sometimes this can be due to some invisible window being present. I used to get this a lot with a particular anti virus product which I don't think is still made.
It hadd some kind of proxy server sitting over the program and the internet connection and when it put messages up, it left an apparently open full screen window behind. Mouse users never saw it of course as if you click the item it goes through, but with a screenreader you find that this is not possible of course.
Maybe the spam program you are using??
I've never tried it.

However sometimes some browsers can end up with the current window not detected which gives the same error, indeed, Outlook express can do this when you switch identities, but in this case you cannot get focus back without restarting Outlook Express. This program issue when used with nvda has been around for years but is so unpredictable its hard to troubleshoot, and may not be fixable.

Hi,

No, NVDA just says "Pane" and when it does this for example when I want to gain focus of a list of emails in the Inbox I can't just use the arrow keys to move through those mails, I have to press "tab key" and "Shift + tab" to come back to the list of emails first.
This behaviour can also happen when I try and alt tab to windows such as Internet explorer etc.

Re: terminal software with NVDA

jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

In my experience, Teraterm has been working the best for me and that's not always perfect. This is when using something like VI in OpenWRT, for example, which for the most part, lets me move about through the files good enough to edit them. Something that works much better though is to use WinSCP to get access to your server and use notepad to make your changes. It also makes moving around through the directory structure much quicker, that's if you don't wish to do things through the terminal. I know at one time, NVDA had gotten worse when trying to use applications like Teraterm, but as a few months ago, it was working okay for me.
Take care.

I've tried teraterm, putty and secureCRT. They all work well, but where things tend to fall apart is when editing files remotely.

I find that arrowing through files either line by line or character by character produces very inconsistent results. Lines or characters tend to be double-read.

Thanks!

Re: Web Browsers' Security And Compatibility With NVDA

 

Just to emphasize what's already been said, IE11 is not any more prone to security issues (in the big picture) than any other contemporary browser is.  IE11 is shipped with Windows 10, though Microsoft doesn't do anything to make that apparent, and is being maintained and will continue to be so at least until MS-Edge comes somewhere close to having the feature set that all contemporary browsers do (and it's not anywhere close at the moment).

You could always try Chrome if you wish as well.  There are lots of folks who now do.

It really drives me crazy when help desks "suggest" that people use the familiar because it is familiar to them rather than figure out what's actually going wrong and fixing it.  I don't mind this sort of suggestion as a stopgap measure, but if something isn't working with IE11, Chrome, and Firefox (at a minimum) these days then it's not coded correctly.
