The following companies I know have jobs or could be looking.

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.

This is a perfectly fine question for the main group, and you're more likely to get a response if you post it again there.

Re: Windows installation with NVDA

 

There is no one, universal key press to kick you into boot options of UEFI/BIOS across brands of computer and brands of UEFI/BIOS.

On HP machines, it's Escape during a cold boot.  On Dells I believe it is F12.  There are some that use F2.  Way back when, F8 was often used to invoke Safe Mode, but it wouldn't surprise me if some machine may have used it to trigger BIOS.

You have to determine how one gets into BIOS for a given machine.  Also, if you are doing a first-time install of an operating system on a machine that's never had one, or a completely clean reinstall of Windows, you do have to get into UEFI/BIOS to do so and there is no screen reader support at that level, and in all probability never will be.  By contrast, a Repair Install or Feature Update can be triggered from within an existing running Windows instance and will be accessible using Narrator once the process gets far enough along to allow it to be invoked, and that's pretty early on.  You generally have a very short period of time where all of the initial work is being done where Narrator will not start with CTRL + WinKey + Enter, but if you keep trying it eventually will come up.

With any install of windows. You can use narrator for startup installtions.

Just hit windows key + control + enter key. That will turn narrator on and off. you can use narrator until you get another screen reader installed you know better.

Re: Windows installation with NVDA

That is f12, because f8 gives you the windows startup menu for how to start windows.

For drive selection on boot you need f12, and USB will only show if setup in BIOS as a boot device.

Then with sighted help select the right boot device, then after a

There is no need to install Windows 10 afresh if all you're trying to do is
get a new feature update.  Either of the above noted methods work, and are
accessible using Narrator after they've had a few moments to initialize.
Narrator can be invoked via CTRL + Windows Key + Enter.

Quickly switching between NVDA's Configuration profiles

mystragical@...
 

Hi,
Is there any way where rather than setting individual input gestures for each profile, I can quickly cycle through all of the profiles, much like how it happens with NVDA+CTRL+arrow keys? Is there a input gesture for Next Configuration profile and previous configuration profile in the input gesture dialog box?
Or, Something like, pressing NVDA+e, for cycling through each profile, would be also useful for me, if possible.
Thanks

Re: Assistance with locating existing MS-Office training content

Any question asked on any list should be answered on the list.  The general theory is that for every person who asks a question on a list, ten others also have the question but didn't ask it.

To the question at hand - have you looked at our official training material?  We have the Basic Training for NVDA, and we then have modules for Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint with NVDA, either individually, or you can buy them all together as part of the NVDA Productivity Bundle: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Assistance with locating existing MS-Office training content

 

I guess that really depends on what you're classing as "training content" which could be anything from basic keyboard shortcut lists through detailed tutorials (with or without screen reader involvement).

NVAccess publishes materials on using NVDA with Office.  I believe Gene NZ has some material on accessibilitycentral.net, too.  Microsoft itself virtually always publishes material on using its various products with screen readers and without, but where the "without" material covers basics applicable whether you're a screen reader user or not.

It just really depends on what it is you're seeking here.
