Re: Braille support in Google Sheets with NVDA 2018.1 change release notes

I am with you Brian, I have just got the question if diagrams in MS Word would properly work with NVDA. If not, support for diagrams would not have been integrated in final release. If someone doubts that a function dows not work, than the user should test it before final release.

I find it quite funny that there are RC builds out there much advertised here,
and nobody spots problems, but due no doubt to Murphy's law, they all get
noticed on the release version. Both in this case on brailed support by the
looks of it.

You can't win really, can you? :-)

So please delete the sentence in the release notes about early support while
users are reporting there is no support.
Otherwise users get wrong expectations.

Hello Quentin and all,
I have screen reader support enabled, braille support enabled in
Google docs.
Unfortunately, I still cannot find any option in the Google Sheets
settings, to enable Braille Support.
In their help section Google say:
"Turn on Braille support
1. Open a Docs file on your computer:
•Docs, Slides, or Drawings: Open the file in Google Chrome, Firefox,
Safari, or Internet Explorer.
•Sheets: Braille support in Sheets is available on Chrome OS with the
ChromeVox screen reader. Please make sure that you have the latest
versions of Chrome OS and ChromeVox. We’re working to add support for
other platforms and screen readers.
2. If you haven't already turned on screen reader support for the Docs
editors, press Ctrl + Alt + z (Windows) or ⌘ + Option + z (Mac).
3. In the Accessibility menu, select Settings.
4. Select Enable Braille support.
If you turn Braille support on in Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Drawings,
the setting applies whenever you sign in to any of these editors."
See:
https://support.google.com/docs/answer/6057417?co=GENIE.Platform%3DD
es
ktop&hl=en
On this page,
https://venturebeat.com/2018/01/09/google-adds-braille-support-to-shee
ts-magnifier-tool-to-slides-and-drawings/
they say:
"Braille displays can already be used to read and edit texts in Docs,
Slides, and Drawings. With the added support for Sheets, users will
now be able to read and edit cell contents, as well as navigate
between cells on a sheet. According to Google’s blog post, this will
only be available on Chrome OS with the ChromeVox screen reader, for
now. The company says it is working to add support for other platforms and
screen readers."
So I thought that with this announcement on what's new in NVDA, the
support would work, but it still does not here.
Thank you for any information you can find.

Hi Sylvie,

I must admit I need to test this more myself, but reading:
https://support.google.com/docs/answer/6057417?co=GENIE.Platform%3DD
e
sktop&hl=en it indicates you need to enable screen reader support,
and then enable braille support as well in Google sheets itself. It
also gives a little info on using the routing keys on the display to
navigate.

Let me know whether that does or doesn't help!

Quentin.

Hello Quentin and all,

Thanks for the good news on NVDA 2018.1.

While reading "what's new" in this version, I saw the following
statement:

"Early support for Google Sheets with Braille mode enabled. (#7935)"

What does it mean?
I could not get Braille to work in Google Sheets with this new version.
Thank you for your response.
