True, I rarely use iTunes anymore, in favor of foobar2000.

I've moved over to google play for buying music, plus you can upload 50000 songs for free.

When you type into the search box, and try to review what you've wrote, nvda doesn't speak.

Also when looking for something in the store, nvda goes away, and you need to restart it again.

I'm not sure how to create a log of the crash, because when nvda goes away there's no speech.

WebVisum is working just fine here and I'm running the latest version of Firefox--48.02.  Hope this helps. If you're running something odd like betas or nightly try builds, maybe it won't work but if you use the current stable version, all should be good to go.

Hi Gene

Yes it’s the right click, left click does nothing and left double click
invokes the same gui as using the desktop shortcut, where the temporary
disablement feature is a bit more difficult to find. I cannot get the
AVG icon to respond to the applications key either, which would remove
the need for mouse access . Most other icons in the Overflow
Notifications Toolbar will respond to the Applications key which behaves
like a right mouse click but unfortunately AVG does not. I suspect the
in-built event handlers do not cater for keyboard input.

Numpad star is a right click. Are you saying that a right click should
be used on the icon? I want people to clearly understand the reason for
your command choice. It may matter in future when they want to use the
mouse to right click something else in the system tray or elsewhere.

Gene is quite right The first keypress should be NVDA+Numpad / however
the second keypress should not be Numpad / but Numpad * to invoke the
Context menu. Apologies for the incorrect post.



The corrected steps are:



1. Press Windows+b to move to the system tray.

2Press enter on the Notifications chevron button.

3 Use arrow keys to scroll the overflow notifications list until you
locate the AVG anti-virus button.

4 Press NVDA+numpad / to move mouse *focus *to the AVG button

5 Press Numpad * to activate the AVG context menu (Note: i can’t get the
Applications key to invoke the AVG context menu, hence the 2 step process)

6. ‘Temporarily disable AVG protection’ appears in the Context menu list.



When you activate the disable option, a dialog appears with various
warnings about removeing protection and instructions about re-enabling
it. You can also set a timer to automatically re-enable protection
after a certain time has elapsed.

In order to turn off the Audion Ducking, press NVDA + control + s.

In this case, I found that Foobar 2000 played them very well. Even VLC, but Foobar was better.

Either uninstall it or stop it from running at start up. although you cannot log in the software still seems to be updating and trying to do things on my computer, resulting in some cases in excessive processor load from msse and freezing of nvda after it tries to run after an update.
I simply used msconfig to turn it off dropbox that is, at start up and then restarted and have had no further issues. Its verynaughty of them not to properly disable the product when they cut off xp users.
