Re: nvda and browse mode

Gene
 

This appears to be a problem only with one web site, as described.  it isn't clear to me that anything need be done.  If others report the problem or if the developers can replicate it, work may need to be done to keep NVDA and code on the page from interferring with each other.  There may be some other pages where this problem occurs, since it occurs on one page.  But I don't think tinkering with NVDA is worth doing at this point.

Re: new member and a few questions

 

hi again.
copy documents without addon only works with html files.
i mean when you are in one browser, select parts of page and then
press control+c to copy your selection, nvda announces copy.
i did not see this addon in the official nvda addons website and i
myself, dont use any addon.
nvda is very perfect even without addon!
i dont remember its name.

Hi Dan,



Welcome to the group!



Re "Line feed", what program are you in when it announces that? For me, in
most programs, it doesn't necessarily announce anything when I press ENTER,
but as I left or right arrow through the text it announces line feed when it
gets to where I pressed enter? This is to indicate that it was a deliberate
press of ENTER and not just reaching the right margin for instance.


You can set NVDA to "Speak command keys" by pressing NVDA+4 or from NVDA's
keyboard preferences dialog. This will announce "ENTER" when you press that
key. Note that it will also announce things like "CONTROL+RIGHT ARROW" as
you move by word, "NVDA+END" before reading the status bar and so on.



Re saving files. Again in word, if I press control+s, NVDA reads:

"ctrl+s

Save As tab selected Save As Alt, F, A " That is using the default
setup of Word showing the "backstage". If I set it up to go straight to the
save as dialog (file - options - save then check "Don't show the backstage
when opening or saving files".



If I have it set to go straight to the save as dialog, I get:



"ctrl+s

Save As dialog File name: File name:

Save as type: Save as type:

File name: combo box collapsed

edit Alt+n

selected some filename.docx"

Which is exactly the same if I press f12.



In Wordpad, when I press control+s, I get:



"ctrl+s

Save As dialog

File name: combo box collapsed

edit Alt+n

selected Document.rtf

"



In Notepad I get:



"ctrl+s

Save As dialog File name: File name:

Save as type: Save as type:

File name: combo box collapsed

edit Alt+n

selected *.txt"





Not sure if that helps though?

The only way I can describe what NVDA is doing is that it randomly

read the first line in my edit window.

I have noticed this behavior in pretty much every program I use,
including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Notepad, Thunderbird, and
Chicken Nugget. I am loathed to reinstall from scratch, considering I
have made a lot of configuration changes, so I would appreciate any

I should also mention that I initially thought this could be something

The ctrl+c/x/v situation is that NVDA will voice the keypress in some situations and not in others. From previous posts I understand it is not easy to do in programming terms. As for the add-on, this only confirms you have pressed the correct keys, not that the function has actually worked. I don't use the add-on, it is something I live with and it is not an issue.

hi dan.
and about your last questions, nvda does not announce copy, peist, cut by default and if you want this feature, you need to install addon or contact developers of nvda to include this feature to this great screen reader.

Hi Dan,

Welcome to the group!

Re "Line feed", what program are you in when it announces that? For
me, in most programs, it doesn't necessarily announce anything when I
press ENTER, but as I left or right arrow through the text it
announces line feed when it gets to where I pressed enter? This is to
indicate that it was a deliberate press of ENTER and not just reaching
the right margin for instance.

You can set NVDA to "Speak command keys" by pressing NVDA+4 or from
NVDA's keyboard preferences dialog. This will announce "ENTER" when
you press that key. Note that it will also announce things like
"CONTROL+RIGHT ARROW" as you move by word, "NVDA+END" before reading
the status bar and so on.

Re saving files. Again in word, if I press control+s, NVDA reads:
"ctrl+s
Save As tab selected Save As Alt, F, A " That is using the
default setup of Word showing the "backstage". If I set it up to go
straight to the save as dialog (file - options - save then check
"Don't show the backstage when opening or saving files".

If I have it set to go straight to the save as dialog, I get:

"ctrl+s
Save As dialog File name: File name:
Save as type: Save as type:
File name: combo box collapsed
edit Alt+n
selected some filename.docx"
Which is exactly the same if I press f12.

In Wordpad, when I press control+s, I get:

"ctrl+s
Save As dialog
File name: combo box collapsed
edit Alt+n
selected Document.rtf
"

In Notepad I get:

"ctrl+s
Save As dialog File name: File name:
Save as type: Save as type:
File name: combo box collapsed
edit Alt+n
selected *.txt"


Not sure if that helps though?

Regards

Quentin.

First I am very greatful for this list and all the
work developers have put into NVDA.

Q1. Instead of announcing “line feed”, Is it possible to cause NVDA
to announce new line or blank when pressing enter to move to a new line?



Q2. Recently NVDA in my class room will not say “file name” when
pressing control + s when saving file for the first time.

NVDA will not say “save as” when pressing f12.



When we press control + c or control + v, NVDA does not announce,

“copy” or “paste.” Is there some setting that is not correct?

Thanks for reading this long email and thanks in advance for your
assistance.
