For the over flow to show. After minimizing to desktop, tab to Navigation button and hit the space bar. That will make all in the list show there icons.
Without doing that you only get the short list of main devices.

Hi, everyone,


I had my friend go into narrator to see if she had NVDA in her downloads
folder. She has NVDA 2019.2 but now she can't update it. For some
strange reason she's not able to go into the NVDA menu by hitting insert
N. I tried the caps lock and the other key but nothing worked. I think
the man who fixed her computer didn't configure it correctly.


Any suggestions as to how she can get into the NVDA menu?


Thanks again for your help.

fixing her computer. She and her husband don't live close to a place
like Best Buys. They have to drive clear out of town to a place like
that. She knows one other person who might be able to fix her computer
but he doesn't want to go to her house because of the Corona virus.

Re: Windows 10, NVDA, Narrator and Braille

Pele West
 

Hi Marten

Thanks for writing.

I am afraid I don't see the option to change the display driver.

I took the following action:

1. Windows N for Narrator Settings

2. Shift Tab 17 times. This took me beyond the braille settings.

3. Tab twice to "Use BRLTTy"

I don't see how to change this.

What am I missing?

Re: Windows 10 App Essentials 20.10.2 released, a few notices about add-on development for the next few weeks #addonrelease

On Sat, 17 Oct 2020, Hettie wrote:

Is Windows 10 App Essentials  a windows or nvda app?
Neither. It is an NVDA add-on. Press Insert+n, t, and go down to "manage add-ons" and press enter. That will allow you to install add-ons into NVDA. You can press Alt+G to open a web page where you can find add-ons. Move to Windows 10 App Essentials, press enter, move to the "stable version" link, and select that.

> Is it essential to use it with windows 10??

Windows 10 will be more accessible and much more pleasant to use if you do use the add-on. You can use NVDA in Windows 10 without it, but I can't think of a good reason not to use Win 10 App Essentials, and many good reasons why you should use it.

Does it automatically come with either windows 10 or nvda?
No. See above.

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.10.2 is now available. This version includes localization updates and fixes an issue in emoji panel where NVDA may announce first people emoji if this category is selected. It also comes with a fix for Cortana generation 2 (Version 2004 and later) where NVDA doesn’t announce text responses when using most recent Cortana version. As always, you can check for the add-on update via Add-on Updater or visiting community add-ons website.

 

A few things to note about upcoming Windows 10 App Essentials releases and development snapshots:

  • Version 20.10.2 is the last version to support NVDA 2020.1. Starting in November, NVDA 2020.2 or later will be required (this add-on supports current and immediate past releases, which are 2020.3 and 2020.2, respectively as of time of this post).
  • Starting next week (likely by October 25th snapshot), development snapshots will require NVDA 2020.3. Although the stable version won’t require 2020.3 until next year, I’m doing this early for dev channel subscribers in order to test add-on compatibility with vast internal changes introduced in NVDA 2020.3 that benefits this add-on.
  • Starting in late November (likely around Thanksgiving weekend in United States), development snapshots will not run on November 2019 Update (Version 1909) in preparation for invoking another support policy: Windows 10 App Essentials will be dropping support for Version 1909 in January 2021.
  • Likely in early December, development snapshot users will get an absolute alpha (pilot) build of this add-on i.e. an add-on development snapshot that will require upcoming NVDA 2020.4 which is in development. The content of this alpha build will depend on features the upcoming NVDA version will have around that time.

 

By the way, if you want to contribute to this add-on, feel free to post issues on GitHub and/or send pull requests. Anyone who are using Windows 10 (at least supported releases) are welcome to contribute, although for best experience, I recommend using latest stable release (Version 2004), or if you are helping out with an Insider Preview feature, use either beta or dev channel builds (speaking of dev channel Insider Preview builds, expect a series of builds this weekend and next week that will bring support for updated emoji panel design, which is way different than what we are used to, according to reports I’m hearing).

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: NVDA + 1 under new tab page of Chrome

Gene
 

If you are in the right place, browse mode should be on. Make sure you are actually in the blank page. Use f6 as probably the fastest way to get there. I have my browsers open to a blank page and if I am in the right place, browse mode is active and the descriptions work as you describe.

If you open a blank new tab with control n, you are placed on the address bar, not in the actual page.

Hi. I think this may be happening because you are initially focused on the address bar when you open a new tab. Press the tab key to move your focus away from the address bar and onto the actual page content. Then, press insert-1 to enable input help and the single letter navigation keys should now speak their function.

Re: Windows 10, NVDA, Narrator and Braille

Marten Post Uiterweer
 

Hi Pele,

Narrator uses his own display driver and replaces the one of other
screenreaders.

Press ctrl-win-n, this will open narrator settings. You can use NVDA
here.

Press shift-tab a 17 times.
You will land on something like: Braille display driver.
In my case, it is set to Focus 3 display driver.
Change the driver here.

You can also change it in device manager, but this is more simple.

I have looked at the Narrator manual, but the instructions are the same

Amir, my hosting provider is doing some server migrations, & I
recently changed wp4newbs.com to be my primary domain in CPanel--so
yeah--between the 2 it definitively created some problems. I have
things working now though. I do apologize to you for the
inconvenience.

Please read the 1st post, entitled "WordPress for Newbs Materials Are
Now Free" for access details.

It's been pretty low traffic of late, but feel free to post any
queries/experiences you may have.

web creation

Hello, Haroon. While not specifically geared toward NVDA, for
wordpress in general using a screenreader, you might be interested in:
www.wp4newbs.com<http://www.wp4newbs.com>
& also please reference my signature for a resource that might be of
interest as well.

Please note that all these resources are free, so, although they
belong to me, I don't receive financial gain from them. Hopefully
posting these will not be considered advertising/commercialism, etc.

Re: my friend's problem is solved for now

 

Well when I get a system to fix, I always ask if this is, a get it working no matter what, or is this, get it, test it, give me a deadline and maybe a contract and I'll get it done.

If the forma, then I will do what I need to do to get it working ignoring everything else.

For most people that I handle their system, I ask what they want, whats it doing, how have they done it and note it down.

When I get a new system to fix, the first thing I do is reformat.

A reformat fixes everything and means I don't have to handle all the stuff I don't know and gets me control.

It also makes me put things together without stuff getting in the way.

I also make note of hardware, devices, the system specs etc.

I then install everything needed and any extras people want, do research on the system and optimise it.

Its up to them weather they keep it that way however.

And 90% of all my customers keep it like that.

Excluding the one guy that clicked all the boxes on websites saying his system was infected because he was scared about the icons on the system tray, that actually got a chuckle outa me.

The same guy then coppied his user account over without following all the safety procedures to do that requiring me to make another account and reinstall a bunch of extra stuff, and to be sure I gave him the 6 page document and told him that thats not the way you do it.

The only other one I had was a person that I got everything working that continuously did the same things to break it, ie loaded cracked software, used dodgy sites, clicked the links.

This person also didn't give me their list of what they wanted and just said it was slow.

So I got the system, reformatted it again, tested it, loaded and said it was fine.

2 weeks later, its broken, so I got the system, reformattted it, tested it and it was fine.

This happened 6 times before I decided the easiest way was to reformat the system, load xp which what it originally had, load it to factory defaults, and hand it back with a disk of all the stuff I put on it, and end the contract because it was becoming a total hellish bore.

Now I am at some point facing a person that has a system that was never configured but these guys are security nuts, which believe that updates of any kind break things.

So I am going to have to take the system, clear it and see what is what if they agree.

Probably won't happen.

I also have a guy on my list that keeps his system going on 1 win7 install and if it breaks even though he has worked it to almost death refuses to replace it till its sort of in a semi broken state.

He's my brother and well.

I have also had people that instead of asking me load a load of stuff for something I allready have.

This means the system gets full of spyware and other junk.

The stupid thing is I have access to the stuff they need and all they need to do is ask me for it, give me the cash and I send the thing.

But no.

So here is a system totally screwed because no one listens to little me, so another reformat but I actually feel like I was wasting my time.

My top one is the person that had a virus.

Her responce, load 30 firewalls 30 antimalware and virus scanners and a load of other things to find out what the best is.

Result, 95% of the hard drive is full of junk files.

Removed all the programs and put it down to just a couple.

The system needed to be back the next day.

So its on all night long clearing out junk files and happily it worked after that but still.

Then there are the people that read half the screen, try to do a simple task and end up in the middle of another galaxy, loading spyware, extra software and the like without knowing what it is.

They don't know how they got there maybe they got distracted.

So I clear the system and just in case I am a total retarded dumbo which is possible because I remember so many command sets its impossible to remember everything at any 1 time, and I can get there and it works and I can't find where the problem actually was.

I don't think its possible though for the blind to halfscreen anything in fact unless I am really that tired that I am falling asleep at my terminal which doesn't happen these days because I make sure to go away before that happens.

In fact if  I start to read something, or search for stupid things online or sit for a minute or so, only to find myself pushing my eyes then I pritty much know I need to hit the sack because the next time and thing I know I will be off my chair.

One time I took my computer to Geek Squad and they messed one of my computers up royally too.  My computer went through two other parties before it was fixed.  That computer spent its entire life with me and I got another computer and some left over voices were loaded onto a brand new computer.  I just removed them recently.  Repair places can really mess up computers when they don’t understand screen reader software.
