Re: problem in using zoom with nvda on my bluetooth headphones

 

Udit,

As this question really is about NVDA, you'll get a lot more attention from a lot more members if you ask on the main group.  You're not asking about how to use Zoom, but about how to solve a problem with NVDA when using Zoom.

Just FYI to the membership at large, the Groups.io default for all groups, unless an owner changes it, and very few do, is that any reply using an e-mail or webmail client reply function is "to the group."  And since this is generally really what's wanted, that's why few owners change it.

If you want to reply back only to the person who originated a specific message, you will need to use the Reply to Sender link at the bottom of each message to reply privately (AKA direct message, and messages sent this way will have [DM] in front of the subject).

Hello Tim

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Can you help me understand what you mean by bind, because I'm not sure what that means. Just to be clear, I wasn't planning to request the login credentials of Bard or Bookshare from a user. Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing from you if you have a few minutes.

All the best,

Dennis

You will have to get in touch with Bard and Bookshare to see if what you want to do has any security problems using there registration content.

They bind that stuff for a reason, and what you want to do breaks that.

Hello Dan,

Great to hear from you. I gather that since you saw my email that it did not go to only the poster. Hopefully this will go to just you. I find Thunderbird to be a real pain in the petunia.


I am excited about this project. As blind people we have an enormous problem accessing all that is freely available to sighted people, and when deafness or limited hearing is added to the situation, the result is almost too frustrating to comprehend.


My website is also going to tackle the problem of books distributed to those of us who are blind, but those books don't contain any figures or diagrams. As I'm sure you remember, in the good old days, books we obtained from Recordings for the Blind on audio tape always had descriptions of all pictures, diagrams, graphs and so on.

The third item I am working on is enabling blind users to upload PDF or multi page TIFF files containing images to my website, then the website will perform OCR, save the results to a text file which the user can then download. I have been experimenting with this, and we are now writing some code to evaluate the column structure of each page for recognition.

Finally, I have to find a good way to determine if our users are blind or deaf or in any other way reading disabled at the time of registration. My preference is to enable people who are registering to present their Bard, Bookshare, etc credentials so we can determine that they have been verified as disabled by another organization. I do not want people to have to get additional documentation to prove their disability yet again for our service. I have seen this done by some organizations but I don't recall which ones. I think I remember that the Internet Archive does something like this.

If you have any ideas about how to do this verification please let me know. Also, please let me know your thoughts on what I have described and what additional services might be helpful.

Again Dan it was great to hear from you. Give my best to Judy.

All the best,
Dennis

Hello Ibrahim,

Hopefully this is going to you off list. I am building a website which performs the tasks you described. The primary purpose of my website ap is for blind/deaf and deaf people to get a transcription of audio from
mp3 audio files and mp4, Avi, etc files. My website will not be available for use by those with these disabilities for at least another month, but if you are disabled and have a few files which need to be transcribed I can do it for you in advance of announcing my website. In my tests a 1 hour video takes about 8 minutes for the transcription, and the result, though not perfect, is truly amazing. You can reach me at:


dennis@.... I look forward to hearing from you.

Google doc offline

farhan israk
 

I use Windows 10 21h2, nvda 2021.2 and google chrome latest. I have added doc offline extension. It is working with only one account. I have some more gmail account. I am not able to enable offline doc feature for those account... What should I do now?


Re: changing page and font size on google doc

farhan israk
 

Thank you. I have also tried to change page pressing page up or down. It does not work.

You cannot use NVDA+F to announce font attributes in Google Docs, due to the way it has been developed as a web app. The keyboard shortcut to use in docs is Alt+Ctrl+A then Alt+Ctrl+F. Have a look at ehe Accessibility menu (Alt+Shift+A) for more accessibility features of Docs, such as jumping between headings, announcing comments etc (unfortunately some of these shortcuts conflict with the NVDA shortcut key that you may use, Alt+Ctrl+N).
To move among pages, just use page up and down without Ctrl. As you have discovered Ctrl+Pgup and Ctrl+Pgdown are standard hotkeys for switching among tabs in tabbed applications.


Re: assistance with chat group platforms

 

Yeah I know.

Enough media broadcasts put you guys as having major issues.

Its not all rosey here either.


Jobs are few and far between.

Initially I was hoping I could build up a port folio of accessibility testing work but its not that easy.

Most companies are 1 or 2 man units and well they come and go.

The major networks well you need to be lucky to find them.

The job I just did and my first jobs werre only known to me because there was basically a distress signal put out online because someone or other got a problem and couldn't do the work.

The first of these jobs did continue but stopped.

This one is just starting and I hope it continues.

Some companies have shifted to other frameworks and have merged into big powerhouses but jobs are not really big as such.

Most of what I do with accessadvisers for example is sit looking at conferences and other things rather than working.

https://connect.intopia.digital.

This came on my desk as an emergency load.

I did a job with them 2 weeks back.

It payed half of my audioquest dragonfly red which arrived today, fully registered and updated and sounds amazing.

2.

 

level access.

There are jobs but they may be american ones never got a responce back but yeah they are probably good.

Nobility.org.

I have not had a job from them for a while.

Access advisers.

Not sure if this is international or just local but yeah there are potential jobs though not recent.

Next, check out your local university.

True you may need help getting in the door and not sure how to do that.

I was bored one day and used a contact who's mobility teacher's husband just happened to be a professer in psychology and well I got in that way right up to test pilot level.

But it may not be that easy for you, ring about.

The final thing to try is your local disability ministry or whatever they are if there are jobs.

I am not sure how to do this as such as I was contacted by local people on my organisations lists.

Off the top of my head.

blindtech.

atug.

atig.

if you look at https://keybase.pub/shauneve

then find and download a file called listolists.txt there are lists of stuff in there.

Some may work others may not.

These were setup as a temperary database because the local org just didn't compile things.

And thhe lazy gits on the lists I asked about said I should do it myself because obviously they didn't want to bother.

So for the sake of the users I put it together.

Don't expect me to forking update it though.

I mean its there and it works but its there for a different thing than what it is.

 

Aden I did notice you are using a cloud email so it would help to know where you live.

Anyway there are places you should be able to go but I don't know all of them.

True you may need help getting in the door and not sure how to do that.

I was bored one day and used a contact who's mobility teacher's husband just happened to be a professer in psychology and well I got in that way right up to test pilot level.

But it may not be that easy for you, ring about.

The final thing to try is your local disability ministry or whatever they are if there are jobs.

I am not sure how to do this as such as I was contacted by local people on my organisations lists.

Off the top of my head.

blindtech.

atug.

atig.

if you look at https://keybase.pub/shauneve

then find and download a file called listolists.txt there are lists of stuff in there.

Some may work others may not.

These were setup as a temperary database because the local org just didn't compile things.

And thhe lazy gits on the lists I asked about said I should do it myself because obviously they didn't want to bother.

So for the sake of the users I put it together.

Don't expect me to forking update it though.

I mean its there and it works but its there for a different thing than what it is.

 

Aden I did notice you are using a cloud email so it would help to know where you live.

Anyway there are places you should be able to go but I don't know all of them.

Re: changing page and font size on google doc

Sascha Cowley
 

You cannot use NVDA+F to announce font attributes in Google Docs, due to the way it has been developed as a web app. The keyboard shortcut to use in docs is Alt+Ctrl+A then Alt+Ctrl+F. Have a look at ehe Accessibility menu (Alt+Shift+A) for more accessibility features of Docs, such as jumping between headings, announcing comments etc (unfortunately some of these shortcuts conflict with the NVDA shortcut key that you may use, Alt+Ctrl+N).
To move among pages, just use page up and down without Ctrl. As you have discovered Ctrl+Pgup and Ctrl+Pgdown are standard hotkeys for switching among tabs in tabbed applications.

I am using windows 10 21h2, nvda 2021.2 and google chrome Version 96.0.4664.45 (Official Build) (64-bit). I use google doc. I cannot change the font size. I press insert + f to check font size and other formatting staff. If I press that keystroke after changing the font size, nvda announces the previous font size. It does not announce a new font size after changing it. I also cannot change page. If I press ctrl + page down, chrome switches to another opened tab.


Re: SoftMaker FreeOffice 2021 - I am looking for some willing accessibility testers

It's been some time since installing FreeOffice and so I can't comment on this latest release. However, I can tell you that the LibreOffice installer is completely accessible. Writer offers adequate support with NVDA for word processing as does Calc for composing and reading spreadsheets. I believe some people have reported issues where using NVDA's Read All feature doesn't always read the entire document and in the past the spell checker wasn't providing the level of feedback that would be considered ideal. However, while I have a very current version of LibreOffice installed I haven't checked on the status of these issues in quite a while.

Subject: Re: [chat] SoftMaker FreeOffice 2021 - I am looking for some willing accessibility testers

This app isn't worth bothering with.
Started TextMaker, and the dialog for choosing the user interface is inaccessible. It reads what's in it, but doesn't read when I tab through it.
So I mouse clicked what I needed to, and that seemed to work.
Again an inaccessible info setting dialog. Got out of that, and was in the text field. NVDA reads it, but using the display model.
This means that there's no specific support in NVDA for the control, and it just screen scrapes. So say all doesn't work, and reading is weird.
For example, the W in Welcome to TextMaker turns into a space when moving by character.
Also all of the dialogs are like that, not just the initial ones.

PlanMaker didn't read at all.

LibreOffice might be better than this. I think NVDA has support for it, but haven't tried it in a long time.

vN2FnhoUmAWlHykFDFpxZN%2FKU32IORJo%3D&amp;reserved=0> has just recently been released, and there seem to be some accessibility improvements, but I still suspec there will be some deal breakers, and I don't find those nearly as rapidly as those who are trying to use TextMaker (equivalent of Word), PlanMaker (equivalent of Excel), or Presentations (equivalent of PowerPoint) do.

You still have to choose the classic menu controls layout during
installation for there to be any accessibility, as their ribbons just
don't work and, if anything, may be even worse.  If the choice between
ribbons and classic menu controls remains inaccessible during the
install, that would be unfortunate, too, but I installed this weeks
ago without thinking about having NVDA on at the time, and right now I
don't want to uninstall/reinstall.

If there are any willing "quick and dirty" accessibility testers for
the
2021 version of SoftMaker FreeOffie, let me know what you're
encountering, good or bad.  I suspect that the final verdict will be
"still inaccessible," but I can't come to that conclusion from my own
quick and dirty testing.
