Re: how do you perform these updates

 

Following up Gene's mention of avoiding having bundled potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) installed, I cannot recommend anything more highly than Unchecky.  I initially learned about this and suggested installing it only to my blind and visually impaired clients, but very quickly dropped that limitation and now recommend it to all.  I use it myself so that if I get in a hurry and miss one of those checkboxes I should have unchecked it is done for me.

Yes, it runs constantly as a background process, but its resource footprint is incredibly small and light.  If you want to avoid PUPs, which have become so common since the scourge of endless bundling as become de rigueur, Unchecky is an excellent tool for doing so and is the PUP equivalent of an antivirus scanner.

Re: how do you perform these updates

Look in the system tray.  As far as adobe updates are concerned, I don't know what programs you receive these notifications for.  You can update Adobe Reader from within the program if you can't from the system tray.  Adobe Flash can be updated on the Flash web site.  If you are going to use the web site, let us know so we can discuss avoiding having extra potentially unwanted programs installed when you update.
 
My point is that you don't have to use help balloons to do most things of this sort.  The system tray or in the programs themselves will usually provide options.  For a lot of things, help balloons are not exclusive.  there is usually another way to do the same things.

Hi listers ken with a question.  I repeatedly get, new notifications from both java and adobe saying updates are available click here but by the time you do anything the balloon or icon is gone.  the notification isn’t in the action senter on windows 10.  the computer had been on for over two hours before they popped up this time.  all my screen reader sees is the microsoft edge running pandora window.  these are apparently critical updates.  how do I get to them manually to allow the updates to install.  it is only on the screen for a fraction of a second.  by the time NVDA is saying click here to comtinue there is no here to click.

Sometimes you can find them by using the action center notifications.  The way I do these is to use Ninite to get them. This is much easier and quite often, the updater in Java will fail after downloading about 70% of the file and it never gets to even start to install the update.  The Ninite installer works every time.

Hello all,

I'm trying to remove some bookmarks from Firefox.
I'm running Windows10, Firevox 50.0, NVDA latest Next snapshot.

I looked up the topic in Firefox support guide, but it talks about
"visiting the page one wants to remove; going to the address bar;
clicking on an icon whth a star; clicking on Delete".

But there's no icon with a star spoken by NVDA.

Any suggestions, please?
Thanks, ciao,

Comments in Word

All,

I'm having a couple of issues reading comments in a word document:

First, when I arrow to a comment, it will temm me what the comment is,
but pressing alt-nvda-c doesn't read the comment to me, it just says
that it's there. Second, when I press nvda+f7 and arrow to comments,
it doesn't show any comments in the tree view even though I know there
are a number of them.

Help is much appreciated.

Yes it is true that Windows Defender is very accessible, but when it
comes to updates, you need to play with the task scheduler within Windows.

As far as protection, it's just enough to keep you out of trouble on
a temperary basis, but as it stands now, I wouldn't make it the daily

Unfortunately the RSS addon is non free. But you can hide read areticles and delete them; the rss feed is treated like a normal email account.

It can't be done as far as I can tell.  There is no setting governing this behavior.  This is a serious problem.  The only way to make sure you haven't missed anything is to look at every entry every day.  There is no way to even reduce the problem, as far as I can tell.  I see no way to limit the entries displayed to today's date, which would go a long way toward solving the problem.

Also, I am currently using gpodder for my audio and video podcasts but it is not accessible with NVDA so I have to use it with vision.

 

My main concerns for rss aggregators is that I can hide individual episodes that have been read/played and only show new episodes/articles.

Personally I am very happy with the RSS Reader Program provided free along with the other Webbie Accessible Suite of Programs.

 

There has been a recent slight tsimplification of the program to improve stability where I understand automatic Feed Refresh after the program has been loaded has been removed.

 

I do not personally find this a problem as all I do is cursor down my list of available feeds. I then hit control R which not only refreshes the feed rapidly but also open up the table of available articles in the feed automatically. then  I just  press enter on the Feed article and it will load in your browser.

Press escape in the article list and you will go back to the feed list.

Very simple but it works great.

 

I paid for the QFeed program from Accessible Apps but to be honest this Free program is far far more stable and fast at loading. RSS Reader has never crashed on me whilst this was a frequent problem with QFeed.  Also the support from Alasdair King is good whilst the support on problems with the paid for QFeed is non-existent.
