You must use grease monkey and kill windowless flash or else the brightcove flash portion will be inaccessible
After they have been installed, go to http://www.wsoctv.com/live-stream
click on where it says embedded object, then use object navigation mode and navigate the area with insert-2 4 and 6, You'll hear it say graphic graphic graphic, but amongst all the graphics is a series of numbers 0:00, route the mouse to the graphic beside the numbers then left click it. I know it's a little fiddly, but I have it cut down to a fine art.

Have you tried the site? I have tried Grease Monkey and Kill Windowless Flash now and then. I seem to recall that it doesn't work on this kind of player. Some things are just plain inaccessible. As I said, it's a vague memory and I may be wrong but my recollection of this kind of player is that it is just not accessible.

That's what I thought.  it looked exactly like the Bright co app I've seen on some other sites.  You may have gotten it to work but as I recall, I never have with any screen-reader or any browser.

Re: google chrome comment

As far as I know, Chrome doesn't have the Firefox reader mode. 
 
I wonder how many people who praise Chrome so highly know about it.  Firefox reading mode cleans up documents and many blind browser users may find that it makes them much easier to read.
 
I haven't done enough filling out of forms with Chrome to comment on that aspect of using it.

As far as streaming is concerned, that may be the result of what the browser is using as its default streaming program.  Chrome uses HTML5 for streaming on Youtube, for example.  I don't know what Firefox or Internet Explorer uses.  If either one uses Flash as the default streaming player, then results may differ.  Also, we don't know anything about your connection reliability and speed.  I don't like Flash but I don't have pauses, in general, when sites use it to stream. 
 
If Chrome does load pages faster on some sites, that would be something that many users would have to verify. 
If Firefox were significantly slower than Chrome, a lot or most of its long time users, sighted and blind, would have abandoned it by now. 
 
Taking twenty or thirty secondes to load web pages would have resulted in a lot of discussion on list of blind computer users and I have seen none.  I'm not saying that there is no difference.  There may be differences on some pages but nothing like twenty seconds.  And I suspect the differences are so minor that a lot of people don't base their browser use on them. 
 
I'm glad you clarified your point about using more than one browser.  It is important that blind users keep this in mind.  It is also not proper methodology to generalize in terms of performance based on one person's experience.  If someone says that in their experience, they have found this or that, that's one thing.  But blanket statements shouldn't be made that Chrome is faster based on one user's experience.  There are too many factors that might cause differences to generalize.

Hi all,
I must clear something up. I do not advocate dumping one browser for another. Actually, I use IE 11, Firefox, and Google Chrome. Each browser is best for certain web sites and also what you use the browser for. For example, I like using the mobile Facebook site on IE 11 better than the other two browsers. However, when I play YouTube videos, I like Chrome much better, because the video never pauses or stops altogether. I use Firefox for my banking site. It is good to have two or three browsers, because a web site may act totally different in one browser than in another. On both of my computers running win10, Chrome loads most web pages at least 20 seconds faster than in Firefox and 30 seconds faster than IE 11. It could be my laptops and set up as well. My advise is to have as many tools at your disposal as possible so you can do as many jobs as you can. Take care, and have a great one.

Yes, if you want to spend an unreasonable amount to solve captchas.  Rumola is much much cheaper and Webvisum can still be used with earlier versions of NVDA.  If you put a portable version of Firefox on your machine that is version 43 or lower, you can still use Webvisum on sites that require captchas to be solved and you can use the current version of Firefox on all other sites.  It may be that for someone who solves many captchas, this might not be as good a solution but for many, it may be a reasonable one.
 
I keep seeing, David, your claim that Chrome is faster.  How many machines have you compared Fire fox with Chrome?  I doubt that there is any meaningful difference.  I like the Firefox interface more and Firefox has many more popular add ons.  I am very skeptical that dumping firefox is necessarily a good idea and without meaningful comparisons, I shall remain skeptical that there is a meaningful difference in speed. 
 
I have Chrome on my computers because there are sites, now and then, where I get better access with it.  I use Firefox as my main browser. 
 
And as far as streaming is concerned, the browser doesn't stream.  Whatever player is used streams.  I am, again, very skeptical that Chrome is any better at streaming.

Hi Group,

I have just opened a PDF file in Balabolka and I have had no problems
with reading, navigation or copy/paste.

I have used it in the past to convert lengthy text files and other
formats such as PDF, EPub and HTML to synthesized speech using the
Microsoft default voice of choice. I have the new legal Eloquence SAPI
5 version which does a great job of interacting with the software. On
older slower computers: XP and early Windows 7, I did have a problem
with the program crashing when I tried converting lengthy text and other
format files to speech. On my newer Windows 8.1 8 core with 16 GB RAM,
I have no such issues.

Just what types of problems are you people having with the interface?

On 3/20/2016 5:46 AM, Kostadin Kolev wrote:
Hello,

Working with text from within Balabolka is not screen reader friendly.
At least not when using NVDA.
But you can open a file (e.g. PDF) in Balabolka, select the whole text
content with Control+A and copy it to the clipboard with Control+C.
Note however, that NVDA will not report that you have selected any
text. Then you can paste the copied text in some accessible text
editor like Notepad, AkelPad, Notepad++, etc. and work with it from
there.
Alternatively, after opening the file in Balabolka, you can save it to
plain text file (*.txt) from menu File -> Save as in Balabolka and
choose "Text File" from the "Save as type" combo box in the "Save as"
dialog. Then you can opened the saved plain text (*.txt) file in any
accessible plain text editor (Notepad, AkelPad, Notepad++, etc.) and
work with it from there.
Note however, that Balabolka's text extraction methods don't preserve
some formating information, including the page breaks and the pages
get merged in one large file with in some cases no distinction between
pages. In most cases however, there is at least one blank line between
pages, so you'll be able to distinct them from one another.
Even with all those suggestions for workarounds however, I strongly
suggest you to firstly try to open the PDF files in Acrobat Reader DC
and work with the text from within it, before trying any other PDF
viewer like Balabolka. Acrobat Reader DC is free and can be downloaded
from Adobe's website. You can copy text from PDF files from Acrobat
Reader DC, unless the PDF file in question is protected in a way that
prevents text copying to work at all. But in such a case, I doubt that
you be able to extract/copy text from such a PDF file even with
another PDF viewer like Balabolka for example.

I have never seen a browser named Chrome discussed that doesn't refer to the google browser.  I would assume that is the one intended unless the writer specifies otherwise.

Hi all,
I must clear something up. I do not advocate dumping one browser for another. Actually, I use IE 11, Firefox, and Google Chrome. Each browser is best for certain web sites and also what you use the browser for. For example, I like using the mobile Facebook site on IE 11 better than the other two browsers. However, when I play YouTube videos, I like Chrome much better, because the video never pauses or stops altogether. I use Firefox for my banking site. It is good to have two or three browsers, because a web site may act totally different in one browser than in another. On both of my computers running win10, Chrome loads most web pages at least 20 seconds faster than in Firefox and 30 seconds faster than IE 11. It could be my laptops and set up as well. My advise is to have as many tools at your disposal as possible so you can do as many jobs as you can. Take care, and have a great one.

Yes, if you want to spend an unreasonable amount to solve captchas.  Rumola is much much cheaper and Webvisum can still be used with earlier versions of NVDA.  If you put a portable version of Firefox on your machine that is version 43 or lower, you can still use Webvisum on sites that require captchas to be solved and you can use the current version of Firefox on all other sites.  It may be that for someone who solves many captchas, this might not be as good a solution but for many, it may be a reasonable one.
 
I keep seeing, David, your claim that Chrome is faster.  How many machines have you compared Fire fox with Chrome?  I doubt that there is any meaningful difference.  I like the Firefox interface more and Firefox has many more popular add ons.  I am very skeptical that dumping firefox is necessarily a good idea and without meaningful comparisons, I shall remain skeptical that there is a meaningful difference in speed. 
 
I have Chrome on my computers because there are sites, now and then, where I get better access with it.  I use Firefox as my main browser. 
 
And as far as streaming is concerned, the browser doesn't stream.  Whatever player is used streams.  I am, again, very skeptical that Chrome is any better at streaming.

Re: about balabolka and nvda.

 

hi.
thanks for your answer.
i have problem with selection.
in text editor like notepad, akelpad, wordpad i can press shift with
down arrow key and nvda say selection.
when i press control shift right i can select word and nvda reads my selection.
but unfortunately in balabolka does not say any of my selections and i
cant understand what do i do.

Hi Group,

I have just opened a PDF file in Balabolka and I have had no problems
with reading, navigation or copy/paste.

I have used it in the past to convert lengthy text files and other
formats such as PDF, EPub and HTML to synthesized speech using the
Microsoft default voice of choice. I have the new legal Eloquence SAPI
5 version which does a great job of interacting with the software. On
older slower computers: XP and early Windows 7, I did have a problem
with the program crashing when I tried converting lengthy text and other
format files to speech. On my newer Windows 8.1 8 core with 16 GB RAM,
I have no such issues.

Just what types of problems are you people having with the interface?

Hello,

Working with text from within Balabolka is not screen reader friendly.
At least not when using NVDA.
But you can open a file (e.g. PDF) in Balabolka, select the whole text
content with Control+A and copy it to the clipboard with Control+C.
Note however, that NVDA will not report that you have selected any
text. Then you can paste the copied text in some accessible text
editor like Notepad, AkelPad, Notepad++, etc. and work with it from
there.
Alternatively, after opening the file in Balabolka, you can save it to
plain text file (*.txt) from menu File -> Save as in Balabolka and
choose "Text File" from the "Save as type" combo box in the "Save as"
dialog. Then you can opened the saved plain text (*.txt) file in any
accessible plain text editor (Notepad, AkelPad, Notepad++, etc.) and
work with it from there.
Note however, that Balabolka's text extraction methods don't preserve
some formating information, including the page breaks and the pages
get merged in one large file with in some cases no distinction between
pages. In most cases however, there is at least one blank line between
pages, so you'll be able to distinct them from one another.
Even with all those suggestions for workarounds however, I strongly
suggest you to firstly try to open the PDF files in Acrobat Reader DC
and work with the text from within it, before trying any other PDF
viewer like Balabolka. Acrobat Reader DC is free and can be downloaded
from Adobe's website. You can copy text from PDF files from Acrobat
Reader DC, unless the PDF file in question is protected in a way that
prevents text copying to work at all. But in such a case, I doubt that
you be able to extract/copy text from such a PDF file even with
another PDF viewer like Balabolka for example.

Hi all,

 

Some of you asked why can’t NV Access change the name of NVDA to something else. Here are the reasons why (some of them technical):

·         NVDA is a desktop program (not a WinRT or universal app), thus the name “NonVisual Desktop Access” makes sense.

·         NVDA was originally designed to access desktop programs. With the advent of Windows Runtime (WinRT) and Universal Windows Platform (UWP), NvDA developers (including I) are working on enhanced support for new style of apps.

·         Add-on extensions: With the assumption that NVDA will stand for “NonVisual Desktop Access”, the extension of add-ons has been defined as “nvda-addon”. Changing the name of the screen reader will cause confusion for add-on authors, especially those overseeing community add-ons website and are charged with reviewing new add-ons (I’m an add-on author and serve as a reviewer, and I’m the current quarterly add-on release coordinator/manager, tasked with consulting other add-on authors as to what should go into seasonal maintenance versions of various add-ons).

Thus, when we do change a screen reader’s name, not only it impacts users, but also its brand image, technical side of things and so on.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Ok, that's good.
Next, you need to install a mozilla addon called Grease monkey.

After that, you must install an addon called "kill windowless flash"

for streaming on Youtube, for example.  I don't know what Firefox or Internet Explorer uses.  If either one uses Flash as the default streaming player, then results may differ.  Also, we don't know anything about your connection reliability and speed.  I don't like Flash but I don't have pauses, in general, when sites use it to stream. 
 
If Chrome does load pages faster on some sites, that would be something that many users would have to verify. 
If Firefox were significantly slower than Chrome, a lot or most of its long time users, sighted and blind, would have abandoned it by now. 
 
Taking twenty or thirty secondes to load web pages would have resulted in a lot of discussion on list of blind computer users and I have seen none.  I'm not saying that there is no difference.  There may be differences on some pages but nothing like twenty seconds.  And I suspect the differences are so minor that a lot of people don't base their browser use on them. 
 
I'm glad you clarified your point about using more than one browser.  It is important that blind users keep this in mind.  It is also not proper methodology to generalize in terms of performance based on one person's experience.  If someone says that in their experience, they have found this or that, that's one thing.  But blanket statements shouldn't be made that Chrome is faster based on one user's experience.  There are too many factors that might cause differences to generalize.

Hi all,
I must clear something up. I do not advocate dumping one browser for another. Actually, I use IE 11, Firefox, and Google Chrome. Each browser is best for certain web sites and also what you use the browser for. For example, I like using the mobile Facebook site on IE 11 better than the other two browsers. However, when I play YouTube videos, I like Chrome much better, because the video never pauses or stops altogether. I use Firefox for my banking site. It is good to have two or three browsers, because a web site may act totally different in one browser than in another. On both of my computers running win10, Chrome loads most web pages at least 20 seconds faster than in Firefox and 30 seconds faster than IE 11. It could be my laptops and set up as well. My advise is to have as many tools at your disposal as possible so you can do as many jobs as you can. Take care, and have a great one.

Yes, if you want to spend an unreasonable amount to solve captchas.  Rumola is much much cheaper and Webvisum can still be used with earlier versions of NVDA.  If you put a portable version of Firefox on your machine that is version 43 or lower, you can still use Webvisum on sites that require captchas to be solved and you can use the current version of Firefox on all other sites.  It may be that for someone who solves many captchas, this might not be as good a solution but for many, it may be a reasonable one.
 
I keep seeing, David, your claim that Chrome is faster.  How many machines have you compared Fire fox with Chrome?  I doubt that there is any meaningful difference.  I like the Firefox interface more and Firefox has many more popular add ons.  I am very skeptical that dumping firefox is necessarily a good idea and without meaningful comparisons, I shall remain skeptical that there is a meaningful difference in speed. 
 
I have Chrome on my computers because there are sites, now and then, where I get better access with it.  I use Firefox as my main browser. 
 
And as far as streaming is concerned, the browser doesn't stream.  Whatever player is used streams.  I am, again, very skeptical that Chrome is any better at streaming.

A few questions:

1. I love the Firefox reader mode. Does Chrome have something equivalent?

2. In the past, I've had problems not being able to hear what I type in
form fields? Has this improved?
