Hi!
NVDA 2016.2 is working fine for me as well: I haven't spotted any issues since I installed the latest full version.
Bye for now!

Re: iTunes 12.4.1 update.

Clare Page <clare.page@...>
 

Hi!
In answer to your question, yes, I've updated iTunes to 12.4.1, that's the correct version number, and it has definitely improved. I haven't tested everything, but I can report that scrolling up and down lists works like it used to, with NVDA reading whatever item you land on if you arrow down a list, use the Page Up and Page Down or Home and End keys, or do first letter navigation in the list. It also seems to me that iTunes opens and runs faster than it used to on my Windows 7 laptop, but maybe I'm just lucky with that.
Glad to see Apple bringing out an improved version so quickly!
Bye for now!

Re: FW: [Nvda-devel] FW: Browse Mode with NVDA 2016.2 not working

 

hi.
i understand what do you say.
i have this problem for brows mode too.
the best version for me is 2015.3 and i dont have any problem in using it.
sometimes i test the newer versions just for helping others, not for
my daily use.

Re: [nvda\] NVDA Devils advocate

 

Well interestingly tech including printers and routers are a hit and miss thing.
I have had several d-link, tp link and dynalink-sisco units and they all started fine but the later units just have noo accessibility at all.
Right now I have a netcom which works and a netgear universal which after setting it manually, did a firmware update and it worked like a charm
I have had equipment that has been less than helpfull sadly.
Sadly it seems to be a bit of hit and miss weather your favorite bit of kit works or not.

Hear, hear!!

Software development is not all that different in that regard than any
other pursuit where repair is involved. Just like a mechanic cannot fix
a car if they're unaware of a problem, or if a reported problem cannot
be replicated by them, neither can a programmer do the same for a bug.

This is one of the reasons I download and install the release
candidates. NVDA is not a major corporation with the resources to hire a
dedicated testing department that can flog the software to death. Having
been a programmer, and one in an entity that can and did do that, you
still will not find all potential bugs. Even with very thorough test
"scripts" the general user public will always find a way to do something
that no one could ever have predicted they'd do, and with results that
are sometimes as unpredictable.

Being a late beta tester on NVDA with the release candidates is a good
idea for all users of the software. And those of you who actually use
NVDA as your primary method of access can be a lot more thorough in
testing just by doing what you always do than anyone creating testing
scenarios could hope to be.

When you say moved around, can you see the screen? Often those who can and

also use speech complain that the order is different for the screenreader

to the sighted user. In my mind this implies muddled accessability bolted

If other sites behave as you would expect, its probably the site. Might be

worth trying it in another browser.

I don't think the age of the user has much to do with it. Often its the old comfort zone thing and I have to say, though I'm now using 7 and 10 to some extent. I can get stuff done faster in xp.
I think maybe it was said that at some point it will not be able to support xp, but not yet, and in any case as XP is not really going to change the version that is the very laast to work in xp will continue to work so really no problem by then. I like many have the hack on my xp machines so I get updates, but even this will stop sooner ater than later.
At present my main grouse is that many other software companies will no longer support xp. Notable will be Dropbox in august.
This will mean using these machines as anything other than toys will be harder.

you don't represent your age group. As a person over 55 myself, I do not accept your representation.

As far as XP is concerned, the developers are still intentionally having NVDA run in Windows Xp. Also, I don't recall messages of people reporting bugs stating that they are using XP. It appears you are making an unsupported assumption.

According to what I've seen on another list, it does have one.  But because of the quick boot feature, you won't hear it unless you do a full reboot if you have quick boot enabled.  That's because a quick boot is not a full boot from Windows being completely unloaded where as a reboot is.
 
I've also seen comments that the Windows 10 boot up sound can be changed but it requires making a change in the registry.

That was the idea behind starting this thread.
I posted it because I may be a little bias because I love NVDA. I especially love the report spelling errors when typing. It really cuts down on spell checker.
I also know that we have some developers that read this forem. and I thought it may be a good way for them to obtain information.

Hi Arlene,


Ah yes, but I saved all the XP sounds and if you put them in your /windows/media folder in Windows 7, you could--if you wish--assign the sounds as such in Windows 7.

No, You can't put the start sound that xp used at start up. I like the
sound start up for windows 7. Does ten have that same sound at start up like
you would in 7?

Hi Carlos,


Yes, you are right. For sentimental reason, I kept an old XP SP3
system--mostly for storage and because I finagled a way to play some DOS
games on it through the command line structure. But just this past
week, the old faithful gave up the ghost: some sort of motherboard issue
as well as a shaky hard drive. So I decided to replace it with a
reconditioned Windows 7 Home Premium system for about $125 plus tax. I
am used to having tons of back-ups in the event of a calamity so I am
comfortable with 3 computers: my 2 Windows 8 systems (one to be upgraded
shortly to ten or when I get the nerve) and the old XP system, now to be
replaced with the Windows 7 reconditioned box. Oh for the tragedy of
not hearing that old XP boot sound! I know you can configure the new
system with the old sounds--but just like dating a blonde you really
liked and then when she dumps you dating another blonde; it's really not
quite the same <laugh>!


...And so it goes.

Hello:

The newer the PC/machine; the less problems are encountered with
new software!

At some point some NVDA users will be hit with the reality that
Windows XP has lived a very very long life and wants to retire/be left
alone!

There are a number of charitable organizations/groups that sell
rebuilt PC's at economical prices that at least run Windows 7.

There are a number of software developers that warn customers that
their software no longer will support vintage PC's!

So, if users insist on continued usage of old PC's/machines. Then
don't complain/whine when operating systems/software does not run
correctly on your machines!

Yes! I do sound like an old curmudgeon! And, I'm very proud to
represent my age group! (55 Years and above)

I think that if all that is heard is one or two folks saying this isn't working right then it may appear there is a more or less serious bug in nvda. However, if many others say all is good (especially with the specific programs that are giving others trouble) then it would appear that isn't an nvda problem at all. This is not to "slap in the face" or deny that these problems don't exist, but just to get things into prospective so the real problems can be identified and fixed for the good of all.

Just to clarify, I only asked how many people were not having problems
with the new NVDA because people that are having problems with the new
NVDA usually report them. I wanted to see if problems were just with a
few people or the majority.
