Betreff: [nvda] NVDA Default Settings

 

Hello friends,

 

When I install NVDA, there are certain settings that I like to change from default e.g. the speed, punctuation level and keyboard typing feedback.

Is there any way to take a copy of these settings so that when I install on a different machine or re-build and re-install NVDA, I can copy these straight bac again without going through the preference menus to each settings?

Is there a file that I can backup?

I Can’t seem to find an .ini file anywhere, are these settings stored in the registry?

Hi,

if you chose standard accessibility settings for screen readers and magnifiers, you disabled anti-aliasing (smoothing) for text. Go to Edit / Accessibility / Setup Wizard, choose to modify settings for magnifiers, and enable text anti-aliasing again. The effect will probably be gone.

For your reference, in German this is "Text Glätten."
Kind regards,

Felix

Without knowing the page you are accessing it's hard to offer the best advice.  If you can post the link here, someone will likely be able to help.  In the meantime, however several things to try:

- Pressing UP ARROW to move back through the page and see what came before the edit field you are in.
- Pressing NVDA+NUM PAD 4 / NVDA+shift+left arrow (laptop) to move the review cursor back to the previous object.

Otherwise, you could try a different browser.  Firefox generally works really well with NVDA, but there are just some pages that work better in another browser (try Chrome or Internet Explorer).

2016 is fine my dad uses it and its ok.
You have to adjust it some what but it does work.

Narrator is better on 10, and can to some extent make Edge useable, but
to me at least it seems sluggish though it does have better navigation
than anything else I've tried, it certainly does not perform as well as
nvda with programs not made by Microsoft.

This is the anniversary edition I have been playing with. I actually
like the alphabet organised start menu option over the mess before and
the ability to do voice searches can be interesting though not of much
real use other than the wow factor at first.

What else? Well most of it is just window dressing and to me the
security settings even at minimum get in the way all too often for my
taste. Somebody needs to hack it ..:-)

Hi all,
Hope somebody can maybe assist me with some Windows 10 inforrmation.
I'm considering maybe buying a computer which is running Windows 10 to
repllace this computer which is old and giving me plenty of problems.
Is it very easy to use Windows 10 or is it a huge adjustment? I have
previously worked on a pc rnning Windows 8.
My mane questions for thee moment are:
1. I use Openbook 8.0 for scanning and reading documents. Would I be
able to run it on Windows 10 or would I have to purchase another copy?
2. Is there a certain amount of memory that I should get when
upgrading to Windows 10 or doesn't it make a differencce. I'm aware
that I have to run NVDA as Jaws doesn't support Windows 10 unless
upgrading to the latest Jaws.
If anybody has any other advice and tips for me I would really
apreciate it.
I llook forward too your responses.
Regards
Nicholas

Re: what's wrong

 

The way I got round it, at least for me is to repair adobe dc every time this happens it happens with office updates to I was never able to find a fix for the issue.
Well unless you count a reformat as a fix.

Have you recently uninstalled an office product by any chance?
This issue seems to affect all versions of windows sometimes where some
parts of internet explorer do not get reregisterd when some bits ar
removed.
Other than that, I've seen no problem with IE, but use firefox mainly.
Edge in the anniversary update with the next snaps seems a lot better
but its still not right and the software Edge seems to have been written
by a person who seldom uses the internet... note that is a juke but is
how I see its design.

Subject: [nvda] Windows 10 infoormation

Hi all,
Hope somebody can maybe assist me with some Windows 10 inforrmation.
I'm considering maybe buying a computer which is running Windows 10 to
repllace this computer which is old and giving me plenty of problems.
Is it very easy to use Windows 10 or is it a huge adjustment? I have
previously worked on a pc rnning Windows 8.
My mane questions for thee moment are:
1. I use Openbook 8.0 for scanning and reading documents. Would I be
able to run it on Windows 10 or would I have to purchase another copy?
2. Is there a certain amount of memory that I should get when
upgrading to Windows 10 or doesn't it make a differencce. I'm aware
that I have to run NVDA as Jaws doesn't support Windows 10 unless
upgrading to the latest Jaws.
If anybody has any other advice and tips for me I would really
apreciate it.
I llook forward too your responses.
Regards
Nicholas

Hi Nicholas

I am using an Asus laptop. It is faster than Dell, but just as good. I
suppose the SSD has something to do with the speed though.

The only pain is that I do not have an extended Insert, but the numpad's
insert works well enough.

Hi Heaven,
Thanks for your response.
I must admit I didn't know that we are using windows 10 here. It doesn't
look that bad.
What make of laptop are you using? I have sent an enquiry about the numpad
as I do find it very useful.
Please let me know if you saw my email I sent to your gmail address about
the braille display.
I look forward to your response.
Regards
Nicholas

Hi Nicholas

I am not sure of Open Book.

We use Windows 10 at the College as you know, and my laptop runs
Windows
10
without a problem on 4 GB RAM. It is a 64 Bit system so 4 GB is
recommended.
