In the old days, an sfc could be run to replace all system files with their originals and have them re registerd with the system. Not sure if this is still the case as many do not have any installation media any more.

I have had this going on for quite some time now and it is something on my machine, probably something that didn’t get uninstalled. Nothing thus far fixes it and a reinstall of Windows is going to be necessary to fix it completely. It’s not NVDA though. I have NVDA working on two other machines, one running 7 and the other running 10. The big test is to try it with IE. If it’s what we all think, it will behave similarly. It may work once or twice but then behave exactly as it does in Firefox.

Sorry for the bad news.

Did you have an office product on your machine and have removed it recently, or has any programs uninstaller apparently failed?
I don't know the fix myself but I'm pretty sure that virtual buffers are not being created by nvda and thus this points to something broken in windows api somewhere that nvda listens to.

I would say that your should find older versions of nvda do not work either now, if they do then the problem is obviously more complex, and we need to know what is different on your machine to most other peoples machines.

hello every one.
i tested nvda 2016.3 and i faced a very important regression.
i completely removed nvda previous versions, deleted its profile and
installed nvda 2016.3.
i set my prefered settings and started to work with it.
when i wanted to use firefox, i observed that nvda is not accessible
with firefox with the fresh install!
the arrow keys does not work, singl letter for navigation does not
work and also even nvda does not read the content of a webpage!
i tested this problem in all websites which i visit, and the result is the same!
i tested with firefox 22, 39 and 41.
whats the reason for this regression?
i am not shure about nvda 2016.2 and 16.2.1, but i am shure about this
version, because i tested this two times!
and when i want to open my gmail and type the address, nvda says:

g gm gma gmai gmail gmail. gmail.c gmail.co gmail.com
and even i cant navigate with the address which i typed.
i can only let nvda spells it to make shure i enter the address correctly.

as i mentioned, for example: if i upgreat my nvda from version 2015.4
to 2016.3 everythings is great.
and this problem happens only for fresh install.
that mean one person wants to install nvda for the first time,
download version 2016.3 and installs it!
i can only press tab and navigate by links.
but when i press enter on it to read, i cant read the content of the
web!i realy need your help. thanks so much and God bless you all.

Yes its normally one or more dregisterd files or worse, a version of a dll, put in by some program and then not removed with the uninstall. The problem for the sighted is that all looks normal its only screenreaders that won't work.

Its interesting that in older versions of word, with normal ribbons you can hear the full verbose stuff either way, from memory. I have taken steps to not use ribbons wherever I can due to the oddball logic used to make them, but this is a personal view, and anyone growing up knowing nothing else I suppose would learn them and be happy.

Hello, I believe this is done using tooltips. Zoomtext read these tooltips
aloud as the user moved the mouse as I recall. I'm surprised that reading
tooltips isn't already a feature of NVDA in some manner. If not, then I
believe it should be added directly into the product, rather than using an
add-on, because reading tooltips is that crytical.

If it is already a feature, then check the manual for leads on how to
enable tooltips, or some one will probably suggest options.

Hope this helps,

These are the latest development snapshots of nvda for the next version. there are two that can be downloaded by anybody. Master are basically betas of fixes and reasonably stable, and next are first tries of new features etc. If you look for nvda snapshots you should find them easily. Be aware though that both update very regularly, sometimes once a day.

I deleted Java in the end, it does not seem to be required by much these days.
I'm using the next snaps now which seem to be working with less lag with Firefox for some reason.

As for things not reading at all. I think we would need to see a log of the offending part of the session to have any idea of what is going on. I have a sneaky suspicion that recent versions of Firefox, particularly 49 and50, have an issue of hanging generally. The latest version of 49 does seem better though but its very subtle and hard to be sure as its so fleeting.
I have had no isues with flash its been updating itself quite happily of late. IE on the other hand seems to be having issues getting the latest flash, you need to go in and download it and force it down its throat.. in a manner of speaking!

Hi,
I too experience some issues with Firefox and the latest version of NVDA:
slow reading, freezing pages, some links not showing up while they do in IE, filling forms get interrupted and so on. I uninstalled Flashplayer to avoid the interruption asking to allow it; is there any other interfering add on that I should be aware of and uninstall? Recently, I received a message from Firefox stating urgent update of something to do with Java which unfortunately I allowed. Now each time I start my laptop, I get a long announcement related to Java which I close. Don’t know how to copy it to send it to the list and I am not finding where it is to remove it.
Please help.
Many thanks

On the windows 10 machine it was a fresh install and there was no issue.
Very strange. Unless we can identify the actual parameters to cause this effect its hard to be able to diagnose it for us and indeed for the developers.
Do the affected folk have any extensions or add ons on their Firefox?
I use navigational sounds. the nuw add blocker, not the one that allows ads, There are also the normal add ons thatprocess flash and other forms of embedded content, but seriously think it will not be any of those.
My main guess is if you have some kind of web site checking add on like the avg one or one of those ones that looks for bargains etc. Some of those seem to act up a lot.

I don't believe Vista supports ducking.

Oh okay! I thought with the latest update of ten. I thought the sound was gone!

Hi, Arleen,

 

Yes, windows 10 does have the startup sound like 7. I had to disable fast startup to get it.

Rosemarie,

          You can also get to it by opening Settings and putting "sound" in as the search string.  One of the items returned from the search is "Change system sounds" which, if selected, opens the dialog to which I refer.

Hi, Brian,


I have some great news. I listened to a special program about one of our baseball broadcasters who's retiring. That special lasted for a couple of hours. When I came back to turn the computer on, I got the startup sound. Yippieee! Now it's working great! Thank you for all your help.

Rosemarie,

        Sorry to hear that.  I just double checked and it does cause "the classic startup sound" to play on my Win10 laptop.

         The problem, though, is that it plays as the lock screen appears.  Once you log in, depending on what you've got set as startup processes, it can be a wait until the desktop is up and ready to go.

Re: Chrome and NVDA and setting it as the default browser

Dan Beaver
 

Ok, I have figured it out.


It turns out that my UACC was set to 34 percent.  I changed it to 0% and then tried the setting for making Chrome the default browser.  It worked just fine now.  I guess Chrome couldn't overcome the UACC level for some reason.


Thanks for all the help and yes I did set UACC back.

Hi Brian,


Yep, that is the path I tried and it doesn't take effect.  I thought perhaps it was because UACC was stopping it in the bakcground but I checked and it isn't even coming up.


Any other ideas?

Dan,

         Once you've got Chrome open and focus is on that window:

  1. Hit ALT
  2. Hit Down Arrow
  3. Hit S   (the first three steps will cause Chrome settings to open in its own tab)
  4. Search for "Make Google Chrome the default browser", which should take you to that button
  5. Activate the button, close the tab

Re: Chrome and NVDA and setting it as the default browser

 

Yes.  What is your current default browser?

Some have settings to switch back to themselves as the default browser if something else changes it.  I can look through the settings for whatever is you keep having pop up as the default browser even after trying to set Chrome as the default.
