Firefox versions and navigational sounds add on

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

I know like me people like this add on as if nothing else it alerts when a download is complete, however recently all my machines, xp, 10 and 7 have had a version of Firefox 47 installed. For one thing this version is like a slug on any single core machine, no matter which operating system it has, but rather annoyingly, the navigational sounds add on no longer works in it. I've just spent a good half an our downdating all machines to 46 which has fixed the issues.
I have no idea what Mozilla have done but its not good. I have now disabled updates in the advanced options update tab in tools until somebody lets me know this issue is sorted out in 47. There are a lot of single core processor machines out there which will fall fouls of this and as blind folk the loss of sound I find very irritating and confusing.
I do not have any idea how to submit a bug report like this, so if you can and do, check what I say and tell them please. In the meantime 46 is just fine.

Incidentally 47 is so slow on some of my AMD single core machines you get an nevda error when you click links etc.

Re: need a free and accessible file converter which can convert wma or webm files to mp3

David Moore
 

It used to be recommended a lot, and I was able to install it Okay, but from what you say, Brian, that is nothing to mess around with. Mark, you better not mess with it. I would not want someone's computer messed up, because of something I recommended. Let us find another choice. There are a few free file converters out there. I will do some research for others that are accessible.
Thanks a lot, Brian.

A word of warning about this download. it has embedded in its installer, Ad
Aware which it seems to install no matter what you tell it at install time.
then when you make a selection in the main screen, it has changed the
browser to use an AVG piece of software presumably to keep you safe but
which wants to flog you avg stuff all the time.
I had to uninstall both of these to get my home page back and then the next
time I ran the conversion software it tried to install it again.
Now I do not mind suggestions from software, and some of them have been
good, but i dislike this you will have this no matter what approach, so I've
reluctantly removed the convertor. As mentioned there could be ways around
this I'm not aware of, but the nocandy switch installed from the command
line seemed to do nothing in this case.
Just be warned.
Not all of these add ins are welcome or indeed accessible. I'm sure the
intentions were good , but maybe not for a blind user.

Hi,
Did you download it from the web site I gave you? I just downloaded it to
make sure that I had the latest copy and it installed fine. Make sure you
have the custom install radio button checked on two different pages. I am
going to look on ninite.com to see if it is available for download on there
and let you know. It is so easy to use and so powerful, that I really want
you to get this. Take care and talk in a minute.

To: accessindia <accessindia@...>

Hi everyone,

I'm working with a few friends on a portal that seeks to provide
mentorship for people with disabilities who may not have the resources
to find good mentors. here's some more information about this.

The Next Billion is an organization that connects people with
disabilities with industry leaders, who can support them
professionally with the goal of improving diversity and accessibility
in the global community. Through our platform, we connect mentees
(people with disabilities) with a mentor (industry leader) that can
help guide and foster them to achieve their professional goals – based
on their field of expertise, relationship with their particular
disability and their personal experience. We will be launching our
platform in October 2016 and are looking for advisors, mentors,
partners or organizations who would be interested in working with us.
We are also taking pre-signups for mentees and mentors, who would be
the first ones to try out the platform at launch.

We already have several mentors from companies such as Microsoft,
Google, Facebook, and some other financial firms, as well as tie-ups
with universities such as Stanford. If you are interested either as a
mentee or a mentor, please reach out to me personally off the list.

Best,

Re: TEamTalk

Hi Tyler,
Thanks for the information. I, too, was completely unaware of this
configurable option, and had to always toggle to no progress bar
updates to be able to efficiently use the Teamtalk program.
At some point in time, I guess I will also install the NVDA add-on for
Teamtalk too...
Thanks.

There's an nvda add on for this that fixes this problem.

I have recently updated TeamTAlk to the latest version. My problem is
that the progress bar announcements keep talking unlike the previous
version. AS a temproary solution, I switch of the progress bars. Is it
possible to setup a profile for this program. I have never setup any
profiles.

Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

Afrim,
As a personal advice, in case that is a possible alternative, I never
like PDF files much anyways, with both NVDA and JAWS. Thus, I am
converting all my school textbook PDF files into Word, using what is
called the Oxillion Document Converter, which you will readily find
via a quick google search.
Do try and persist to be able to access the material in its original
format itself, that is PDF, if you wish to, but as the last resort,
bear in mind that a Word conversion trick would probably suffice.
Thanks.

Hello:

I have Windows 8.1 and NVDA 2016.1.

I was able to open the PDF file with Adobe reader 11, QRead 3.5,
and MS Word 2016/365. And, as an added bonus I converted it to MS Word
file in MS Word. And to plain text in Adobe reader.

So, I guess it is a computer specific issue!

I followed the instructions I posted before that had come
from Freedom Scientific Technical Support, but with Adobe DC, and it
does cause NVDA to read through the document without having to scroll
from page to page. There was no OK button at the last step of the
things you have to do in Reader DC itself beyond the Accessibility
Wizard, you just close the dialog after dealing with the Security
(Advanced) setting related to protected mode. The first time I fired
up Adobe Acrobat DC with NVDA active it gave me a dialog where I also
confirmed that I wanted it to read all pages and infer reading order
from document, and to use the accessibility options I'd set in Reader
DC itself, then checked the box that said not to show that dialog again.

It takes quite a while to pre-process the text you're using
because it's 305 pages long, but it does get there, and NVDA reads the
whole document from wherever you start the reading.
