Re: Reporting a minor bug between NVDA and Bard Express

Chris, jumping in, here. Bard Express is a separate program. It uses read only edit boxes for displaying book details. One navigates with tab ad arrow keys. It works fine with Window Eyes without any scripts.

Hi Gera
Could you please give a little more information on the Bard Express program, specifically...
Is it a browser based program or does it have it's own interface?
Can you determine what type of control(s) is used to display the book information, i.e is it in a table, text boxes etc. Or just plain text?
As each SR program renders the information differently, I suspect there may be a specific Jaws script for the program, is this the case?
What keystrokes do you use when navigating the book information using NVDA?

Cheers
Chris

HI listers

firstly for those of you guys outside the US., let me explain: Bard Express is a Windows-based program that's used for browsing and downloading Digital books and magazines off the Talking Book Library's BARD system. The bug I'm encountering between NVDA and the Bard Express program is that it only reads part of a book's details from within the list of books. For instance let's take the following book:

In the face of death casilla de verificación seleccionado no marcado
Author: Noll, Peter, Subject: Biography, Annotation: When Peter Noll, a Swiss professor of jurisprudence, learned he had cancer of t, Narrator:
George Backman, Series: , Reading Time: 8 hours, 30 minutes

Now with Jaws, the info within the list reads as follows

no verificado In the face of death
Noll, Peter
Biography
When Peter Noll, a Swiss professor of jurisprudence, learned he had cancer of the bladder, he decided against the radical treatments prescribed by the physicians. From December 28, 1981, until September 30, 1982, he recorded his thoughts and feelings and the progress of the disease. He died on October 9 in his daughter’s arms, leaving this legacy of his own confrontation with, and acceptance of, death.
George Backman

8 hours, 30 minutes

So what needs to be changed in NVDA for this part to be more-compatible with the Bard Express program?
