Re: Problems with pc start and NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

As well as Ann's suggestion, it might be worth double checking that you are in fact signing in with the user account you think you are signing in with.  I only have one account on mine, but from memory, if you tab through that login screen, you should get to either an account option, or a list of accounts.  Also, if for some reason your PC doesn't have internet access, and you are signing in with a Microsoft account, you will need to use the password you last used ON THAT PC (just in case you changed it somewhere else) - note that only applies if the PC doesn't have an internet connection and you are logging into a Microsoft account, not a local account.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Problems with pc start and NVDA

I went down and reread what you initially posted, and if you're actually at a password, where the system is asking you for the password, did you even use a password before all of this?

If not Safe Mode? I don't understand what it is that you mean. Didn't you say that you went I'm guessing to msconfig and make it so your computer would boot into Safe Mode right? That's the only reason we're even talking about it, but if you truly weren't actually trying to make it boot into Safe Mode and it's now asking you for a password. Trip trip trippy. Maybe this is all due to that registery file you spoke of. Is that when all of this pretty much started?

Not sure of what OS it is that you are using, but if you are using Windows10, then just follow the steps below.

Windows10 machine out of Safe Mode using Command Prompt.

1. Open Command Prompt as administrator using the Run Dialogue:
Windows key+R for the Run Dialogue; now type exactly cmd and use the keystroke Control+Shift+Enter to open and run it as admin.

2. Type exactly what it is below:
bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot and hit the Enter key. This
will turn off Safe Mode.

3. Close the Command Prompt window and reboot, (Windows+X & R for reboot). Your computer should start up back in its normal mode.

Well and the other problem that the screen courtain is turned on. ...... Ah and also after I have reseted the Mikrosoft pasword it still says that it is not right. Does anybody have a solving?

There are a couple of ways. You can press the Windows key, type the program name or part of the program name till it appears, press your applications key or shift f10, and choose the uninstall option. Or, choose add/remove programs from system settings, or by typing appwiz.cpl into the run dialog, then pressing enter on the program you wish to remove.

Re: How to Backup a Win10 Laptop

Smiling?
 

If that external of yours is clean with nothing on it, then maybe then you could back up your machine to it, but just because you have a 1TB within the laptop doesn't at all mean that you have 1TB worth of data upon it. So it truly comes down to what is it that you have upon your external, and what's the amount of data you have upon your local 1TB SSD?

As far as making a backup every month though, you would most likely want another drive with more capacity.

Re: regarding Braille Extender

That is for reading .brf files on your computer.

 You'd put the file in a word processor, then put braille extender in .brf mode, so you could read it.


Re: In search of smartphone recommendations

Hi, Android is a wonderful choice. Samsung phones are very good, the a-10 e is a good cheap model that does a lot, also, Nokia is a great choice such as the Nokia 7. Also, 1 plus phones have a lot for the price. You can get any of these phones for under $300. I recommend those, they all have TalkBack already installed, and Samsung phones even have a screen reader of their own called voice assistant. You get to screen reader choices with Samsung. have a great one, and email me anytime if you have more questions. I have used Android phones for years, and I do almost everything you can do on a computer. Take care!

The Go is a lot less powerful - which as with any computer, if you spend more, you can get a faster processor, more RAM etc.  But the other key difference with the Surface Go is that it runs "Windows 10 S".  That is a specific "Lite" version of Windows 10 where you can only run software you download from the Windows store.  So the regular version of most software like NVDA won't run on it.  You can convert Windows 10 S to regular Windows 10 Home, which is a one way step so you can't go back later.  I haven't used the Go but my concern would be ust how well regular Windows 10 Home would run on such a machine - the point of putting Windows 10 S on it in the first place is that it is "lighter" and will likely work better (in terms of running smoother etc) than the full featured Windows.

If anyone has a Go and has made that conversion it would be great to hear how your experience is with it.
