Autorun for the portable version?


Judy Jones <sonshines59@...>
 

Hello again,

 

I now have the portable version on a thumb drive, but is it possible to get NVDA to start when inserting the drive?  If so, how?

 

Thanks again.

 

Judy

hi


There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.


There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.


Which version of windows are you running?


I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.


I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.


But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.


then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.


To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.


not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.


that one might get posted in the next day or so?

Gene, this is perfect.  Thanks so much.  Just what I was looking for.  I could do the run command from a system requiring no speech for that.

 

I am saving this e-mail for my records.

 

Thanks so much.

 

Judy

I am running Windows 10.

hi Judy


The link that takes you to the nvda audio tutorials page  has a lot of content on it plus pages coming off it for a new nvda user. it is only for a desk top user plus you might find other material blindness related you might be interested in from off the main page called Accessibilitycentral.ent

maybe book mark the website instead of reference in a email just in case you delete.

Using Narrator and starting the program from the Flash drive is a good way to do so.  Then, unload Narrator.  Starting in Windows 7, autorun from flash drives was disabled because it was being widely used to spread malware.

You can only use the run command if you know the letter of the drive that is the flash drive.  On an unfamiliar computer, you won't know.  Once you find out, unless it changes, you can use the run command but you need to know how to run NVDA in a method such as I described unless you are always using a computer you definitely know the letter on.

Remind me again, if I don’t know the drive letter, for instance if I have a position that requires  a floating work station, how again would I activate my portable copy?

 

I will check out your tutorials probably tomorrow or the next day for sure.

 

Thanks.

hi

 

There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.

 

There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.

 

Which version of windows are you running?

 

I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.

 

I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.

 

But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.

 

then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.

 

To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.

 

not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.

 

that one might get posted in the next day or so?

Best way is probably to turn on Narrator and find your USB drive and then navigate to the NVDA folder and to NVDA.exe. Then hit enter and then exit narrator.

You can only use the run command if you know the letter of the drive that is the flash drive.  On an unfamiliar computer, you won't know.  Once you find out, unless it changes, you can use the run command but you need to know how to run NVDA in a method such as I described unless you are always using a computer you definitely know the letter on.

Hi


Since you say you might be floating from pc to pc where most computers have a c: drive hard drive d: drive usually a dvd burner it is usually the E drive when plugged i.


The easiest way is either change the letter each time until it starts.


if you do not know start up narrator then locate the usb drive then locate the nvda.exe file on the usb stick then press the enter key then close down  narrator.


The other way i like doing it is labeling the usb stick. for example qqq then have the nvda files put onto the usb stick.


but doing it that way also depends how they have it setup. Like when you press the windows key + letter E then file explorer comes up if it gives you a list of folders and shows all of your drives then it is a matter of just pressing the letter Q it will take you to the usb stick press the enter key now you are inside of the usb stick then press the letter N and it should land on the nvda.exe file then press the enter key and it should start up.


If it is the other screen I can not think what it is called quick access where it shows your latest files etc then you will need to shift/ tab once it will put you in a tree view press the letter T for this pc then press the enter key I can not remember if you have to tab once then press the letter Q it should land you on the usb stick press the enter key then press the letter N for the nvda.exe file then press the enter key and you will be up and running.


any how there are different ways but the narrator one would be the best for a new user to get started with nvda on  a totally new machine.

Yes, Gene, that does make sense, and my thinking was along the same as yours, that the drive may be an E drive.  On my own computer, depending on the USB port I use, I have had labels of E, F, or G.

I should say that there are two Genes.  The other Gene has an address very different than mine.  Mine has Gene in the name and I don't recall what the other one is.  But it’s the other Gene Who did the tutorial and administers the site on which his and other tutorials are available.
 
I don't know if I can answer your question.  I don't know if work stations are worked with the same way as individual computers but on an individual computer, I would insert the flash drive, use computer or Windows Explorer to open the flash drive with Narrator running, and find and run the NVDA.exe file.

You can only use the run command if you know the letter of the drive that is the flash drive.  On an unfamiliar computer, you won't know.  Once you find out, unless it changes, you can use the run command but you need to know how to run NVDA in a method such as I described unless you are always using a computer you definitely know the letter on.

hi

 

There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.

 

There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.

 

Which version of windows are you running?

 

I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.

 

I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.

 

But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.

 

then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.

 

To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.

 

not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.

 

that one might get posted in the next day or so?

I should say that there are two Genes.  The other Gene has an address very different than mine.  Mine has Gene in the name and I don't recall what the other one is.  But it’s the other Gene Who did the tutorial and administers the site on which his and other tutorials are available.

 

I don't know if I can answer your question.  I don't know if work stations are worked with the same way as individual computers but on an individual computer, I would insert the flash drive, use computer or Windows Explorer to open the flash drive with Narrator running, and find and run the NVDA.exe file.

Officially due to security constraints in windows autorun of any old software from portable media is not allowed, but I'm sure you realise this. In any case it would most certainly not work everywhere as most communal computers are locked down solid. I only use the portable version if I cannot get one to install as in Windows 10 access to many items is not possible making it less useful than an installed version.

I didn't see this explicitly mentioned, although it was probably implied by some of the drive letter discussion.

If you don't want to launch Narrator in order to figure out which drive letter your USB stick was assigned to, or if you don't want to have to find your USB stick in file explorer and start NVDA that way, there is a brute force method of starting NVDA.

You simply try starting NVDA on each successive drive letter, until one of them works. Nothing bad is likely to happen if it's not on a given drive, or if there is no drive at that letter.

If your portable nvda can be started by typing "nvda" at the root of the drive, trying something like:

Press Windows-r, to open the run dialog.
Type "e:\nvda", and press enter.

One of three things will happen.
1. NVDA will start--boom, you're done.
2. You'll get the windows error sound.
3. You'll hear nothing, which probably means windows is telling you to insert a disk into that drive (if maybe drive E is a DVD drive or the like).

If either 2 or 3 is what happens, just press enter, which will return you to the run dialog, then press backspace to delete the current selection (the last thing you typed), and try the next drive.

So, if you insert a USB stick, and it gets drive letter G, the whole process might look like:

windows-r
e:\nvda
enter
[You hear silence]
enter
backspace
f:\nvda
enter
[You hear the Windows error ding]
Enter
backspace
g:\nvda
enter
[You hear the NVDA start chimes, or other indication of NVDA starting]

You can keep increasing drive letters until eventually NVDA starts. Since often a new USB stick will be one of the early drive letters, you won't usually have to go far.

If you are very used to this process, it can be faster or more efficient than starting Narrator and browsing to the drive in question. Just another option.
Often I'll start with the most likely drives, such as G, then F, then H. You'll learn the most likely drives for your situation if you do this.

If your path is a little longer than e:\nvda, such as if your NVDA is in a subfolder, you might want to type e:\nvda\nvda (or whatever) for the first one, then replace the backspace key with home, delete, new drive letter, enter, for each subsequent one.

All of this takes a lot longer to read than it does to do.:)

Gene, this is perfect. Thanks so much. Just what I was looking for I could do the run command from a system requiring no speech for that.



I am saving this e-mail for my records.



Thanks so much.



Judy

I am running Windows 10.

hi



There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.



There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.



Which version of windows are you running?



I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at
http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.



I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and
version 1809 of Windows.



But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.



then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.



To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.



not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.



that one might get posted in the next day or so?

Hello again,



I now have the portable version on a thumb drive, but is it possible to get NVDA to start when inserting the drive? If so, how?



Thanks again.
