Re: a helpful tip for anyone using i cloud for windows with NVDA

I’m not sure what you are describing.  You said you have to go to the desktop.  Then what happens when you return to the program.  First you talked about using OCR as a work around, which implies that you have to leave the window to stop speech.  What happens when you return to the window?  What do you mean bhy you don’t lose control of speech?  You must have a problem since you discuss using OCR as a workaround.

I meant to say it doesn't happen in windows 10, at least not the losing control of speech.

yes, it does happen in windows 7. used to experience it all the time Its no fun, especially when you can't stop speech, at least you can stop speech in 10 by simply doing a windows key m to go to the desktop and annoying. I'm so glad I have windows 10 and can use the workaround that I use

Is this the same problem I’ve found with certain programs?  NVDA reads the full screen.  I was using theEmsisoft (spelling) emergency kit and it did this.  I had to use mhy JAWS demo.  It does so when using Virtual Recorder, at least the portable version as implemented by the late Carlos. 
 
I don’t know how many other programs this occurs in but it may be enough that it should be looked into.
 
When this happens, you can’t stop the reading.  Control does nothing and movement commands such as tabbing to switch fields doesn’t stop the reading.
 
I’m using Windows 7.  While I expect this would happen in Windows 10, that would need to be confirmed.

hey guys. For anyone using i cloud for windows, you may have noticed that on the main screen that NVDA reads the entire window all at once when its displayed and it makes  it impossible to use. Well there is an easy workaround to this that I have found works great. This will only work under windows 10
When in the i cloud window, press the windows key and R at the same time to use recognition and OCR will make the window usable. Hope all find this helpful

oops my bad, I meant the NVDA motifier key and R at the same time! I just noticed that mistake. My brain was thinking faster than i could type

Re: thunderbird question

Gene
 

Also, are you a new user?  You said slow with NVDA but is that because you are using NVDA or is it that you have used Thunderbird with another screen-reader and it is faster.  I've seen specific complaints from some people that Thunderbird is slow opening messages on their systems.  Other people don't seem to have the problem.
 
I know that Thunderbird is very popular among blind users.  But Windows Live Mail, though it has a crashing problem on some systems, is a good alternative and you may want to try it.

Hi,


I'm using thunderbird. You could try disabling the global search.
Another reason thunderbird could be sluggish is because you might have a
lot of messages in your inbox. If too many messages in the inbox is the
case, you might want to organize them with creating new folders for your
list and create message filters. That's the only thing I can think of.

Re: Thunderbird search

 

Control+shift+k. That will allow you to search inside whichever folder you are in.

Re: Quick NVDA question

Hi.

Hold down control, shift, NVDA and use the left or right arrows to scroll through the options. There are options to change the voice and speech rate. Once you find the option you want use the up and down arrow to increase or decrease the value.

Hi all, Michael here.

I can't seem to change the speech rate and the voice on the go with an copy of NVDA on an Laptop using Laptop keyboard layout. I can do it on my other laptop with a full size keyboard.  

Any idea how can I do the same thing as I used to do on my other Laptop on this laptop with laptop keyboard layout? 

Hope to hear from you'all. 

Thanks and and have a nice weekend.

Re: Anybody have an accessible password service?

Hope Williamson <hopeisjoyful@...>
 

I use LastPass, and I think it's fine. As for logging into a site on a computer that isn't your's, you can do it as long as you remember your LastPass password.

Re: Anybody have an accessible password service?

Mr. Wong Chi Wai, William <cwwong.pro@...>
 

Please don't spread missleading information.

It just mentioned that one site pretended to be Keepass, and spreadviris.

That is irrelevant to KeePass.

If someone use your name to spread viris, then I can say that you are a viris? Or course not.

I don't have a phone. That's why I was wondering about it.

Re: Anybody have an accessible password service?

1password, Lastpass, Chrome sync, Bitwarden are all pretty accessible with a few quirks here and there.

Thanks.
