Issue With Windows Security And Monitoring Virus Scan Progress


Ron Canazzi
 

Hello Group,

Until recently (I am not sure when this started) when I would manually run a Virus scan for Windows security, I could switch to the screen review cursor and look at the dialogue including the progress and setting.  Now when I try this during a scan, all NVDA says is 'blandk.'  Now if I use the read dialogue keystroke insert + B, after reading through a bunch of superfluous items such as the tool bars and system items, I do get the scan progress information read correctly.  This means that it must be recognizable by NVDA at some level.

Has anyone else seen this issue?  If so, is there some way of rectifying the situation?  If NVDA sees it in the read dialogue context, shouldn't it be available in some form so that it can be read more easily?

Thanks for any help.

Try using object navigation. I don't know how familiar you are with it. I can give you a quick description if you wish.

Subject: [nvda] Issue With Windows Security And Monitoring Virus Scan Progress

Hello Group,

Until recently (I am not sure when this started) when I would manually
run a Virus scan for Windows security, I could switch to the screen
review cursor and look at the dialogue including the progress and
setting. Now when I try this during a scan, all NVDA says is 'blandk.'
Now if I use the read dialogue keystroke insert + B, after reading
through a bunch of superfluous items such as the tool bars and system
items, I do get the scan progress information read correctly. This
means that it must be recognizable by NVDA at some level.

Has anyone else seen this issue? If so, is there some way of rectifying
the situation? If NVDA sees it in the read dialogue context, shouldn't
it be available in some form so that it can be read more easily?

Thanks for any help.

Which antivirus  are you talking about?
I am using malwarebytes. It is not totally accessible. Whenever I need to activate an option I need to bring the mouse to it and click on it, but it is really effective!

Have you considered using object navigation instead of screen review? This is actually what I do and it works beautifully. Simply in laptop mode (I don't use desktop mode ever) do an nvda shift left and right to move between objects, and nvda down and up to interact and not interact with each object. You do not in my experience need to switch modes.

Malware bytes is not an anti virus program.  Windows Security in Windows 10 includes firewall,anti spyware, anti malware and anti virus elements.

Hi Sarah and Gene,

That works perfectly. I don't know how I missed that one.

Yeah, You're right! Malwarebites is a complete antivirus only in the premium. I use defender as the main antivirus and the free version of malwarebites each fortnight or so.
