Thank you Zoe & everyone.  We do really appreciate your positive experiences and testimonials, and I will ensure these get to Mick and Jamie!

(and no, I'm a different Quentin C to the one who runs the Playroom!)

Hey everybody, I just wanted to say thank you to the NVDA team. Last night
my laptop updated to the new version of windows 10 and this morning I went
into the settings to change things and check what the anniversary update had
done to my settings.  I admit I went in with another screen reader and was
quickly frustrated in understanding what was on, off, etc. I switched to
NVDA and within 5 minutes I was done. Using NVDA made the experience
pleasant and quick. Also I want to mention that I have not been able to get
the other screen reader to read in another language. However using NVDA and
a vocalizer expressive voice I have bought I am able to successfully use
NVDA to read in my native tongue.  So I just wanted to thank the NVDA team
for making my windows experience so pleasant. Thank you from the bottom of
my heart and keep up the good work.

Re: Windows 10 infoormation

As far as memory you need 2 GB to run 10. I'd go 5 to 8 if I was you. If you have ran WIN 8 which you have I don't think it should be that big of an adjustment. Shoot I whent from using XP to WIN 10 last year. Kerzweil 1000, Open book etc. should work great with WIN 10.

Re: Switch synth addons problem

What did it do? Do you have an error in the log?

Hi,
I just downloaded the new addons Switch synth and tested out with my NVDA.
I follow what is stated by the addons page, to select slot by
ctrl+shift+nvda+1.
Then I pressed ctrl+shift+nvda+v to save the current setting, and it
echoed 'saved'
After that I pressed ctrl+shift+nvda+2, then I gointo the NVDA
synthesizer page to switch to another synthesizer, then I saved the
setting again.
However, after that I try pressing ctrl+shift+nvda+1, it didn't switch
back to the previous synthesizer.
Did I made anything wrong?
Any advice for that?

I do have to do some digging to find things that have been renamed or placed in odd locations but if you’ve used Windows 8 in any form, the locations are similar. I may have even converted my husband who is a devout Windows 8.1 pro user.

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.

If you want to track the progress of a download, press ctrl j after you start the download to open the download library. A progress bar appears that NVDA can access. Press alt f4 to close the library when done.

Thanks, Lino, I know about that, but, the issue with firefox is that I
think, that since it doesn't offer a status bar, or something, NVDA
doesn't pick up page load progress, etc.


Not a major issue, either way.


Stay well

What I'd like to be able to stop is the bleeps Firefox makes if its playing a file directly from the web. This is very irritating.

Sorry, just reinstalled latest version of firefox, to give it another go, and can't remember what the name was for the extension that offers a form of progress bar beeps for page loading?


TIA

Re: good uninstallers work with nvda?

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

The problem is often the way the program registers the dll files. If they are part of the system then you can only delete them on a reboot. Often they tend to stay because if they a are removed then some program or menu gets mucked up, or often the dlls are locked and cannot be removed very easily by anything. One often seems to find this with software originally written for older versions of windows.

hi

what is a good uninstaller to use? i installed some software tried it then uninstalled it and during the uninstall it said it could not unregister some dll files and it did not completely uninstall and left stuff behind including its installer entry in windows 10 settings. i tried bulk crap uninstaller but it gave some errors so what are some good uninstallers to use?


thanks


Josh

Switch synth addons problem

Mr. Wong Chi Wai <cwwong.pro@...>
 

Hi,
I just downloaded the new addons Switch synth and tested out with my NVDA.
I follow what is stated by the addons page, to select slot by ctrl+shift+nvda+1.
Then I pressed ctrl+shift+nvda+v to save the current setting, and it echoed 'saved'
After that I pressed ctrl+shift+nvda+2, then I gointo the NVDA synthesizer page to switch to another synthesizer, then I saved the setting again.
However, after that I try pressing ctrl+shift+nvda+1, it didn't switch back to the previous synthesizer.
Did I made anything wrong?
Any advice for that?
Thanks.
