Hi Chris,

We've been corresponding offline, but just to follow up for the benefit of the group.  If you've purchased anything from NV Access, you can go to: https://www.nvaccess.org/my-account/downloads/ and once you login, you can download all your previous purchases.

Re George's note about Microsoft stopping selling ebooks - that's completely separate from us :)

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: icons on desktop got messed up

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Josh,

Try doing the following.

1.  Move to the desktop and make sure nothing is selected by pressing control + space bar.
2.  Press the windows context key or shift + F10 to bring up the context menu.
3.  This is what I have:
A.  Under the view menu, I have small icons and desktop icons checked.
B.  Under the sort by menu, I have nothing checked.  This seems a bit strange to me, but if that doesn't work, then try checking 'by date.'  This should put the oldest icons first--at or near the top of the listing.

how to remove avast from windows defender with nvda

Marvin Hunkin <startrekvoyager@...>
 

Hi. Got windows 10 1903 64 bit home on a new assus vivo book laptop. Now, did get the avast removal tool, but asks me to boot into safe mode. Now, trying to uinstall. And a pain. Now, is there a way to remove avast from  windows defender. And also jaws almost chrashes, when I try to click uinstall. And won’t install and the dialog comes up and just chrashes jaws. Want to get rid of avast, using windows defender as my main anti virus.

Any ideas, tips, tricks, and also short cuts and keystrokes for using nvda.

Re: Giving the right amount of feedback

I was referring to the message below yours, which I should have specified.  While I don't know why the command was used either, and I didn't mean to imply that it is for the reason I gave, that is a good result of using that command, its always consistent and I see no reason to assume the other reason.

It is a bad idea to assume motivations or reasoning with no evidence. And the reason you assume makes no logical sense.
 
So the control NVDA f is a good command for find in browse mode.
I'm not sure whether you are talking to me but if you are, I'm 100% ok with the NVDA Find command as it is now!  Apparently, Tyler suggested it to be changed. For me, it's even better to keep it as it is :)

Re: Giving the right amount of feedback

Gene
 

I really doubt this was done to avoid stopping the inaccessible control f find command presented by browsers.  Consider that if you are reading e-mail in HTML and you want to forward a message, setting control f to browse mode find would cause problems.  In Windows Live Mail, using JAWS, if you issue the forward command while a message is opened,, that is control f for forward, the message automatically closes and the message to be forwarded comes up.  Therefore, while reading mail as HTML, you have to use JAWS key f for JAWS find.  So if someone is used to using control f while reading material in HTML, you now have to use a different command when reading a message for find.  For consistency, NVDA always uses the same command for HTML find because it doesn't conflict with any other command in other programs.  NVDA f is an NVDA command and other programs, that aren't screen-readers, wouldn't use it.

Tyler,
I can confirm some of these things you said on your message, specially items 3 and 5.

3. NVDA uses a keyboard hook to intercept all keys. Sometimes it gets into a state where it doesn't pass the keys anywhere.
the result of this is your keyboard no longer works, except for win+l and ctrl+alt+delete. If you press ctrl+alt+delete, you might think you can launch task manager.
As soon as you do, you're back on your normal desktop with NVDA still capturing the keyboard.
The only thing you can do is sign out, losing some or all of your work, or figure out how to kill NVDA either with a second account or with a non-keyboard-based solution.
It used to happen with me quite a while ago. If I'm not going wrong I even posted about it and someone suggested that it could be a problem with my system, something that I was thinking as well, so I just accepted it.
I never thought about using a second account to close NVDA when such a thing happens but this seems like a good solution if it ever happens again. I'll remember it :)

5. If a program stops responding, NVDA goes with it. Take Event Viewer.
View one event's details with enter. From there, press escape and be prepared to figure out how to get NVDA back, because it's most likely going to stop speaking.
Well, usually in such cases I will just do a CTRL+ALT+N and I'm all set again. I would love if everything were too easy :)

6. We know that in notepad, WordPad, Microsoft Word, and other applications, we can press ctrl+f to find things.
However, in browsers, we need to use ctrl+NVDA+f. Why? Because NVDA doesn't want to override the inaccessible browser find dialog.
Ok, this is something I definitely remember posting about, right here. Then someone said they could use the CTRL+F command everywhere and NVDA works just fine, and I'm trying to find out what's the magic behind it until now. Glad to know I'm not alone on this :)

Now, although I've confirmed these points, I don't blame the NVDA developers for all of this. Maybe fixing these things isn't something too easy and since I'm only a user, with very little knowledge about programming, I don't have a clue of the complexity behind it. So maybe we could try and see their side as well, after all despite some annoyances here and there nowadays we have NVDA as an excellent screen reader, and its success among the blind folks only goes to prove it.

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.07.2 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.07.2 is now available. As noted previously, this version is the last release to support Windows 10 Version 1803; in addition, it’ll be the last one to support NVDA 2018.4. Thus, I have delayed version 19.08 (requiring Windows 10 Version 1809 and NVDA 2019.1) until early August so folks can have plenty of time to obtain this version.

 

In case you can’t find it anywhere (including Add-on Updater), the direct link to this version is:

Re: best site for addons

 

Sam asked:
How do you add the emoticons?
If you are using Windows 10, take a look at this post, made by Joseph on the Win 10 Forum. It will teach you a lot if not everything about the Windows 10 Emoji Panel.

Now, to keep it on topic, if you aren't on Windows 10 or even if you don't want to use the Emoji Panel, then there's an NVDA add-on which you can use. Check it here.

Just to clarify: when you go to the NVDA menu, tools, Manage Add-ons, and select "get add-ons", which takes you to the page referenced in this thread a few times already, you aren't seeing Windows 10 App Essentials?

It is several headings down, but you should be seeing it there. If you aren't, then the webpage people gave you isn't going to help much.
