Re: question regarding windows defender

Gene
 

I haven't seen any reputable source say that it works better.  On the rare occasions I have seen it commented on, the same comments were made about its quality as for Windows Defender.  From what I've read, it is about identical to Windows Defender.  I'm not telling people to use it or not, I'm saying that I've seen nothing indicating that it is an improvement.  Also, you don't cite any sources.  If you are siting your own experience, we don't know what that is nor why it might change over time.  It cannot be evaluated.  You may be using the Internet differently now than in the past.  So you may be running across less malicious sites.

Hi

Windows Defender is the replacement for Microsoft Security Essentials
in Windows 10.  It works better than MSE and takes off most viruses.
There was only one time that I had to use additional security to
remove a virus.  In addition, it is very accessible with NVDA.

Re: Older computer running nvda and windows vista.

Hi,
This is slightly incorrect.
Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender are the same program yes, but the program with that name in Windows 7 and Vista is different, so you have to use MSE with those systems, or other third party AV products.
Hope this helps,
Jeffrey

Good afternoon list, Marv here. Sorry, but have another question. I just received an older computer which is a laptop. It is running vista 32 bit and the latest version of nvda.

Afriend of mine still runs a Vista machine and she uses the AVG free

Re: NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox

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

Well, the odd thing is that even on old clunker single core machines, nvda seems to be still quite low in demand and fast. There has to be more to this.
Tell me have you looked at what the processor is doing. I turn off all power saving of course here as not only does this seem to result in multi cores runing slow, but the windows explorer never seems to catch up with what I'me actually hearing as selected.
It does when you make the processor cores run faster. I'm not sure how to do this in 10 yet though.

If you have a number of tabs open in Firefox, NVDA will begin to slow down

the browser becomes problematic and inefficient. The only solution is to
restart firefox.
In previous versions of NVDA, this decrease in responsivness took a while to

However, now it barely takes six to ten hours for this slowness to occur.
The only way to reproduce this step is to to work in Firefox for a while,

I haven't noticed this so much with Firefox, but I have noticed this a
couple times over the last few days in the ordinary system. I don't have
heaps of RAM like the person who gave their specs, but I have had this
problem crop up every now and again over the years. Usually, I can
restart NVDA without having to restart the computer, but when it came to
my Braille Display, things would lock up to the point where I'd have to
restart the entire system, sometimes requiring sighted help to do so. If
this hasn't been just me, then all those scans I did last year to try
and make everything run faster weren't effective because it wasn't my
system's fault. It was NVDA not responding. That is, of course, if the
problems are more widespread than I first thought.

Yes, but I've had this behavior in all three of the main browsers, with both
NVDA and Jaws, so I just close and re-open Firefox, my main browser, once in
a while, and only use the others when necessary.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox


System: Windows 7, NVDA 2016.2, Firefox, any version.
This has always been an ongoing problem, but it seems to be more prevalent
now.
If you have a number of tabs open in Firefox, NVDA will begin to slow down
appreciably in the program. Responses to key presses are delayed and using
the browser becomes problematic and inefficient. The only solution is to
restart firefox.
In previous versions of NVDA, this decrease in responsivness took a while to
manifest--sometimes I could work for a whole day and NVDA would not slow
down until the next.
However, now it barely takes six to ten hours for this slowness to occur.
The only way to reproduce this step is to to work in Firefox for a while,
with a number of tabs open.
I do not know if this same slowness occurs in Internet Explorer, Chrome or
Edge.
I would like to know if others have experienced this decrease in
performance, and what--if any--solutions are available to counteract this
problem.

Re: checking all gmail messages using nvda

Sukil Etxenike <sukiletxe@...>
 

Hi,

I've just checked and there is no select all button (I wonder why). So I'd suggest switching to standard view, where there is a button labelled "select" with an option to select all.

Regards,

Sukil

Morning guys

 

I am using nvda as one of my screen readers to read and write my gmail messages.

 

I set gmail to html basic.

 

I cannot delete all messages after reading them as nvda does not show me the ‘check all messages’ check box.

 

To delete all messages, I have to delete each individual message.

 

Do you know how I can check all messages to save myself from deleting individual messages?

 

Let me apologise in advance if this is the wrong list to post the message of this nature.

 

I’ll be glad to be directed to the right list if this doesn’t seem to be the right one.

 

With respect

Marisane

I haven't noticed this so much with Firefox, but I have noticed this a
couple times over the last few days in the ordinary system. I don't have
heaps of RAM like the person who gave their specs, but I have had this
problem crop up every now and again over the years. Usually, I can
restart NVDA without having to restart the computer, but when it came to
my Braille Display, things would lock up to the point where I'd have to
restart the entire system, sometimes requiring sighted help to do so. If
this hasn't been just me, then all those scans I did last year to try
and make everything run faster weren't effective because it wasn't my
system's fault. It was NVDA not responding. That is, of course, if the
problems are more widespread than I first thought.

NVDA is not just slow in browsers, but also in the system.
after browsing for a while, it starts to get slow and I have to turn
off and on to get normal again.
and my pc is a good machine with I5 processor, 4 RAM ..
with jaws these occurrences do not happen.
I now use the jaws 17 full-time for these reasons.
jaws is not slow in any situation like this occurred with NVDA.

I only use 3 extras.
I do not need anything else.

NVDA is getting slower and every a new version.
this makes me worry.

I think the team of NVDA has to think about this with more seriously.

cheers.

Hello Hrvoje, as far as we know the license should be able to survive a Windows upgrade, we have no report whatsoever of problems during upgrades. We have not tested update to an insider version of Windows, but I would expect the license would make it.

If you get problems you can always contact us at contact@... and we will help you out.
