Hi all,


I'm looking for the title of a podcast for the blind that I've been
subscribed to in the past and I want to resubscribe but I'm having a
brain freeze on the title. All I can remember is that it's hosted by a
husband and wife named Peter and Nancy Torpee.


Thanks in advance for any help.

Question about tunein radio settings and auto play.

Barb O'Connor
 

Good morning listers. I have a couple of podcasts that I like to listen to on tunein radio. The other day when I went into the app, it said that it would start playing the last stream that I have listened to but that this could be turned off in settings. I went into tunein radio settings and was unable to find any setting that would turn off this autoplay. Can somebody help me?

I’m using an iPhone SE 2020 with the latest update.

Thanks for your help and response.

Hi all,

Somehow, when it was late and I was tired, I somehow managed to change some setting on my computer so that when I download books from BARD, the list doesn’t show if the file is a .zip file. It makes figuring out which books are already extracted very confusing. Can anyone tell me the keystrokes to use in Windows 10 with JAWS to return these files to the way they were showing up?

 

Thanks much,

On the best way to store files long term

Gene
 

Here is a quora article I read today that may be of interest to those who want to keep their data safe for the long term.
 
It doesn’t discuss storing data in the cloud and I think that’s a good idea.  But I also think it should be stored by you in another way as well.

Re: NVDA Help Please.

You can even get Eloquence for NVDA!  It's not free, but cheaper than a Jaws SMA :)

Here is the link to NVDA 2021.1 Release Candidate 2: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2021-1rc2/  Basically, unless any major issues are found, this will be identical to the final release (and it will prompt to update to the final release when it's out as well).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi  Quentin,

Hi Janet,

 

Just as with Jaws, NVDA has a desktop keyboard layout (which uses the number pad for some functions) and a laptop keyboard layout (which reassigns those functions elsewhere, bumping some other keystrokes around in the process).  Different to Jaws, the NVDA key can be set to INSERT or CAPS LOCK independently of the keyboard layout - you can use laptop keyboard layout with the INSERT key as your NVDA modifier if you like.

 

Re the 2021.1 beta and Release Candidate versions - yes we are a week or so away from that version coming out so have been encouraging people to test out the pre-release versions.  While you will find those downloads on their release announcements, you can always find the current stable version of NVDA on the main download page: https://www.nvaccess.org/download/  - so the version on that page is currently NVDA 2020.4 and will be until we release the final NVDA 2021.1.  (By default NVDA will check for updates, but you can turn that off if you prefer).

 

The installed version of NVDA can do a couple of things a portable version can't - such as running on the Windows logon screen and other secure screens.  And for various reasons, you can't interact with NVDA via a touch screen using the portable version either. The full list is here: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#PortableAndTemporaryCopyRestrictions

 

With running NVDA and Jaws on the one system - they should work fine together - with the obvious caveat not to have both of them running and speaking at once.  To start NVDA once you've installed it, press CONTROL+ALT+N, and to exit it, press NVDA+Q, then enter.

 

Kind regards

Urgent help needed with Zoom

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I'm registered to attend the NFB Convention. I wanted to watch the comedy show that's on tonight, but when I tried to sign into Zoom after resetting my iPhone settings, it asked for my screen name, my name, email and password, the autofill password that is definitely in the list of my iCloud Keychain wasn't there. There were a couple of strange options in the suggestions list. Then when I backed out, it asked me about Zoom and something else. What's going on? Is this an adjustment I must make, or another Zoom App?

I hope I can solve this puzzle by morning when the convention starts! Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi,
Thank you very much for this, but that link doesn't have any information I
would need about NVDA though. It doesn't even have the link to download
NVDA. Thank you again. I will do some searching to find the information I
need.

Janet

Hi Everyone,
I am ready to switch from JAWS to NVDA screen reader, so my question is can
someone please tell me what is the knewest version of NVDA, so I can
download it? Can someone give me a link to download it from a safe web site?
Can someone tell me what I might need to know about downloading NVDA? Is
there a certain setting I should know about when installing NVDA? Any other
tips will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

Janet


Peace Be With You.

Hi Quentin,

Thank you for this.  I am reading about coming from JAWS to NVDA screen reader, but I don’t see anything about using NVDA with a laptop, or does this even matter? Can you please tell me the advantages of using a NVDA full version and a NVDA portable version, as I am thinking I might be quite interested in the portable version if possible.  I’ve never used NVDA, but I’ve used JAWS for at least 30 years, but because of FS raising the prices as they did, I feel it is time for me to move on. 

Thank you for any advice. 

 

Janet

As others have said - www.nvaccess.org is the site you want.

 

Also, as someone coming from Jaws, there is an article with information on some of the first things which might be useful for you - where things you know from Jaws are in NVDA and so on: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda-community/wiki/SwitchingFromJawsToNVDA

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hi Monte,
Thank you for this! As I was searching online, I kept seeing NVDA 2021 tester, so now I appreciate you telling me the current version to download. I've also notice when reading about NVDA, it mentions a lot about using NVDA with a desktop, but as of yet, I haven't read anything about using NVDA with a laptop. Do you know if NVDA is accessible to use on a laptop? Do you know the advantages in using a full version and NVDA portable, as I didn't know NVDA had a portible version?

Thank you.
Janet
