Re: NVDA problem with Browsers
Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
if it is the same problem i had and it sounds like what i only posted a day or 2 ago to the nvda audio tutorials page under the trouble shooting section hopefully it will sort out the problem like it did with mine. You will most probably need a set of eyes maybe to enter the lines into the command prompt window. If you red the date on the previous email that says about unknown that was when i had the problem on the ladies computer. maybe a month or so ago.
NVDA says “unknown” or “pane” in all of your browsers, Mozilla Thunderbird email client and other places
If for some reason you have problems with NVDA saying “unknown” or “pane” check for the following symptoms:
· In all of your browsers, or the Mozilla Thunderbird email client, no matter what you do, you still hear “unknown” or “pane”.
· In the browser, email client and other menus you notice you cannot get into your menus, or you are unable to use the quick navigation keys
· When you have been told the page is loaded and notice strange behaviour
· Mozilla Thunderbird saying unknown while you try to navigate it
· Your applications key does not work with it being spoken out and other strange behaviour in Windows
· The running applications icons not being spoken out
It might be a good idea to do the following.
Please note: If you are hearing “unknown” or “pane” (as discussed above) NVDA might seem like it is still working properly but it may not be completely in Windows and other programmes.
You could try the following solution which will allow you to re-register your dll files in case they are causing the problem.
When it is finished, you can close the command prompt window with the Alt + F4 key. You should notice now where NVDA was saying “unknown” as in some examples given, NVDA should now read the icons in the running applications area of Windows, speak the content of the webpage and menus, and also in Mozilla Thunderbird and other places in Windows including the Windows applications context menu.
