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.

Are you using CCleaner with NVDA? I found that when selecting an item in CCleaner, NVDA does not report check boxes. This is quite annoying, because I think it could be done so that NVDA announces check boxes in CCleaner.
It might be a good idea to contact the developer who is in charge, some users are reporting problems.

Subject: [nvda] Looking for pod catcher recommendations

 

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.

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

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?

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.

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

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.

Indeed, and thank you for recognizing that, Molly.   This is a perfect example of a topic that fits, precisely, something that's included in the group welcome message/rules and monthly reminder:
-------------------------------------------------
It is presumed that the majority of members will be using NVDA, and possibly other screen readers, as part of their daily routine.  This being the case, before you post a message you have to consider whether the question you are about to ask is actually about NVDA itself, or about the program you’re using it to access.  Questions of the form, How do I use . . . with NVDA?, are very seldom about NVDA, but are almost always about the program being accessed with NVDA.
-------------------------------------------------

Discussing how to actually use a given piece of software, where any discussion of the screen reader being used is truly incidental, is something that belongs in the Chat Subgroup or on a group dedicated to that piece of software.

locked Re: OT: Windows 10 update behaving oddly since yesterday - Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.418)

 

Jacob,

            This question is off-topic for here, but I'll try to give you some help before I lock it.

             First, if you are experiencing unexpected issues immediately or very shortly after any Windows update has been applied, then the first thing you should do is use the Windows 10 built-in capability to uninstall the latest update that’s suspected of causing the issue:

1.     Open Settings, Update & Security.  This should take you to the Windows Update Pane by default.

2.     In the Windows Update Pane, locate the View update history control, and activate it.

3.     In the View Update History dialog, locate the Uninstall updates link and activate it.

4.     In the Installed Updates dialog, the updates will be listed in groupings, with the groups alphabetically ordered, and the items within each group ordered by date – most recently installed first (if no one has changed the defaults).  In most cases, you’ll be looking to uninstall a Microsoft Windows update, and those are generally the final group.  The number of updates available for uninstalling is shown in parentheses after the Microsoft Windows group name.

5.     Almost all Windows Updates will have a KB number associated with them, and if you know that use this as what you search on for the actual update.  Select it.

6.     Activate the Uninstall button located above the list of updates, and the selected update will be uninstalled.

If uninstalling the update causes the issue to disappear then either there is an issue with the update itself or it possibly could have "burped" during being applied and not been applied 100% correctly.   One hopes that the next time it applies that it will either have had a fix made and/or will not have any issues during installation.

There is a group, Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users, that is appropriate for this question and where it's likely to get an answer or answers far more rapidly than it might here:
Subscribe: win10+subscribe@win10.groups.io
Post: win10@win10.groups.io

We also have the NVDA Chat Subgroup, but in this case I'd strongly suggest "going to the source."

This topic is now locked.
