I know it's an old drum inside of a dead horse that I keep beating, but have
you run the NVDA COM Registration Fixing Tool, from the NVDA Tools menu?

which doesn't let me do anything on my pc without restarting NVDA every 10 minutes or so.

It hardly speaks anything, and doesn't complete the commands.

Hi Jeff,

I'm using the Podcatcher included in the Browserpackage of Webbie. Look here:

Betreff: [nvda] Looking for pod catcher recommendations
Verwendetes Mailprogramm: Microsoft Firmennetzwerk

I recently moved from Windows 7 to 10. Believe it or not, I have been
successfully using Juice for my podcatcher. But it doesn't work in
Windows 10 so I'm asking for recommendations of what works well with
NVDA. In Juice I liked the way I could download all new podcasts from
a sizeable subscription feed list and have them sorted into their
own folders by podcast. I know Webbie is out there but I recall it is
fairly limited in its features.

Thanks for all suggestions.
Jeff



Re: NVDA and CCleaner

 

CCleaner interface is not accessible.

There is a way round that, use the portable version.

The settings for everything can be toggled in the ini file.

If you find something which doesn't exist, hit space once and it will appear in the ini file.

Most settings can  bee toggled from 1 to 0.

0 is unticked, 1 is ticked.

They are aware of this, but the ini file for most of it can be edited quite easily.

The installer is riddled with avast malware anyway, and the portable allows you to do everything, including disabling uac for ccleaner, and extra things.

You can even create the run and open from recycle bin.

You don't get the program group or have it start by default but you can do that to.

My only gripe is that you can not turn quick clean off in settings and in fact once a day easy clean and software updater will be toggled on so I have to edit the ini file daily and change a few lines but thats about it.

It might be a good idea to contact the developer who is in charge, some users are reporting problems.

Re: Going to Top/End of Document with Braille Display

André-Abush Clause
 

Hi all,

Regarding gestures, I am open to your suggestions/changes.

I am aware that the documentation is a big negative point of this add-on. Unfortunately my english is not good. So I prefer to focus my efforts on features. However if anyone want to help me on this, feel free to contact me. Any contribution is welcome! :)
Thanks a lot,

André

How is this different from using the Windows control+top and control+end?

The commands are a bit weird though. Nothing at all like VoiceOver or JAWS
so it'd take a bit to get used to. Once that add-on is installed then you
can read the documentation and see all the commands assigned. I think maybe
the braille note touch emulates a brailliant, but I'm not sure. If that's
the case I can probably help you if you have trouble.

Do these "gestures" that you assign remain the same when new updates of BrailleExtender get released? I am new to this and have never attempted to modify commands/gestures.

Also, I'd like to point out that these gestures can be changed. I
usually don't run with the defaults. Installing the addon will bring
you a lot of new gestures in the input gestures dialog. I guess not all
of them can be customized (I don't know about CTRL + end) but you don't
have to run with the default. I usually prefer changing these shortcuts
as soon as BrailleExtender is installed.

Re: Going to Top/End of Document with Braille Display

David Csercsics
 

Yes, jaws and voiceover have similar braille support, and that may be the one feature that causes me to investigate jaws subscription. But I'm not sure about a detailed comparison. It'd be nice if braille were more widely used and it got further testing. Most of the feature lists and testing are speech only, so it's hard to figure out what you're getting in some instances, since everyone does braille differently.

Re: Going to Top/End of Document with Braille Display

kelby carlson
 

As I said, typically the command would be space with dots 12-2-3 or 4-5-""6. That's the way it is with JAWS and Voiceover and on most notetakers.

It wouldn't matter whether we did (and I say that from lots of direct experience).

The NVDA Add-Ons page has an RSS link, announced as such:  https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.rss

If NVAccess has an RSS feed they've done a mighty fine job of hiding it on the website.  I've just done some looking and it's certainly not obvious if it's there at all somewhere.

If one is looking for an RSS feed best practice is always to "go to the source."

The Touch and the Brailliant are in the same line, yes.

Great idea! I am gonna check it out now. The mods should really add the NVDA RSS feed and the official add ons RSS feed to the group.
