Re: NVDA and the Nano text editor

Yep, use nano all the time. I don't have any issues using it, but then again, I've been using linux since somewhere around 1992-93 timeframe, so I'm used to it, and don't have problems moving around the screen using it. There's always the control-L command if your cursor is completely lost, and you can't find it (doesn't happen often, but it does happen, much less now that dialup is gone), what specifically are you having trouble with? give me steps to replicate, and I'll find a solution for you.

Hi folks

Apologies as i have asked a similar question before. Does anyone on list use Nano, a UNIX command line text editor please? I am able to read and edit text with the arrow keys, but NVDA cannot see Nano's cursor when it is moved with Nano-specific commands. The same is also true for VIM --- another text editor.

While I can use Notepadd ++ and other graphical text editors, I work a lot with the command line and would prefer to stay within it if at all possible.

I think Travis has used Nano on here?

Re: NVDA question regarding Mac Keyboard

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

a mac keyboard has the same keys as any standard keyboard. they call it an option key instead of a windows key, but they still have it. All other keys are the same, including page up, page down, delete, home, end, and insert. Now, of course, if you're using a laptop, then all bets are off, as is the case with any laptop, but I assure you, macs have the same keys as windows keyboards, because when the manufacturers build keyboards, they don't build them for windows, mac, linux, dos or any other operating system, they build them for a personal computer, what computer that desktop keyboard plugs into is irrelevant.

Hi Hector,

You mention this keyboard doesn't have an END key - do you need to press
another key as well - I know on a lot of smaller than full size keyboards,
they include a "Fn" key - on Windows keyboards it's usually near the bottom
left, and to get to some functions / keys you need to press that with
another key. So if END is actually on the down arrow, you might need to
press NVDA+SHIFT+FN+DOWN ARROW?

As Sukil said, try it in Input Help mode (press NVDA+F1) and see what that
reads out. That should confirm you have the correct keystroke, and also
some keyboards may not let you press more than two or three keys at once.

Finally, with the status bar, check that the program you are using actually
has a status bar, as not all do. If the program you are in doesn't have a
status bar, NVDA should still report "No status line found."

Regards

Quentin.

Re: NVDA question regarding Mac Keyboard

Hector Elias <hmelias09@...>
 

Hello Everyone:

Thank you for your responses. I am sorry that I was not more specific on my earlier post. I am running boot camp on a 2012 iMac, so I do not have the touch bar. When I press NVDA + 1 to enter "Input  Help" I get the following message, "NVDA + Shift + right arrow moves the navigator object to the next object." On my Mac I use the FN key with the right arrow to perform the key stroke to simulate the "End" key. When I press just the FN + right arrow, when in input help, I get the message, "end". So I know that the latter key combination works. I wonder if it will only take certain keys at once. If so, besides using Sharp keys, is there another work around anyone knows of?

I hope this clarifies any questions you may have.

Thanks again,

Hector

Re: O E classic again

I believe like a lot of things, its gone past its support date, which means yes, you can probably still use it but nobody is fixing bugs etc.
I've noticed that some older updates for no longer supported versions of Word have also been pulled down causing later versions of windows to report that lots of automatic updates failed with unable to download the update. It seems they have forgotten to tell 7 and up updaters not to keep trying to download removed office updates, which is a little bit messy in my view.
Most of the ones I see are updates for powerpoint, word and Escel etc in Office 2002/3.

Hi Hector,

You mention this keyboard doesn't have an END key - do you need to press another key as well - I know on a lot of smaller than full size keyboards, they include a "Fn" key - on Windows keyboards it's usually near the bottom left, and to get to some functions / keys you need to press that with another key.  So if END is actually on the down arrow, you might need to press NVDA+SHIFT+FN+DOWN ARROW?

As Sukil said, try it in Input Help mode (press NVDA+F1) and see what that reads out.  That should confirm you have the correct keystroke, and also some keyboards may not let you press more than two or three keys at once.

Finally, with the status bar, check that the program you are using actually has a status bar, as not all do.  If the program you are in doesn't have a status bar, NVDA should still report "No status line found."

Regards

Quentin.

Re: O E classic again

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

No me neither likewise live mail and other more recent clients. What I find bad for me is having all the accounts in one long tree which can make it muddly and hard to figure out which folders are tied to which accounts for sorting and if you hide some then you tend to lose messages when you forgot you hid them and have rules sending email there which you forgot you had!
This is why using the bodged up Outlook express is what I'm doing.
Outlook is like using a swiss army knife as screwdriver. it has far too much in it.
20 Euro is not a great amount for three installs on different machines.
It of course still has the bugs OE always had like the preview pane can crash it through nvda, but who wants that preview pane in any case.
It also seems to be handling the secure connections fine as well. Yesterday I had to reinstall it due to it losing the ability to remember passwords, but I took the opportunity to get archived many old emails and tweak some rules while I was at it, It kept the accounts OK though so I'm not complaining. It forced me to do some housekeeping.

The one problem it seems to share with other old clients is that if Windows 10 decides to make a whole new build like the anniversary one it trashes it, so its best to back up all messages when you get wind of an impending mega update from Microsoft.
I had a look at the weird client in 10, but its a tonka toy really.

Why not just use Thunderbird, being it's fully supported, and being NVDA
works absolutely beautifully! with it?

Hello all,

I just did a system upgrade for a friend and found that live essentials is
no more. He didn't go all the way to windows 10 so he is stuck without an
email client. OE classic is inaccessible, but I paid not as much attention
to the discussions on it as I should have. So, I installed it and was less
than happy with the result. My friend is even more disgruntled as you can
imagine. Is any work being done to make an add-on to support OE classic?
If so, how can we contribute? Neither of us are coders, but we may be able
to help with funding and testing.

Thanks,

Erik

NVDA question regarding Mac Keyboard

Re: O E classic again

 

Its thunderbird's answer to a callendar, I have not used it, I don't want it and its not accessible but to be honest with it off performance went up.
I only use thunderbird as a traditional email client, its about all I use it for I know I am not using its entire power or featureset but so what.

Re: O E classic again

 

Hmmm well its about all we have that works to be honest.
windows mail is another choice.
live mail 2009 is another choice.
Eudora 7.1 is good but you need to enter certifficates all the time but its ok for non ssl systems I guess.
The bat and pegisus mail come to mind unsure about status.
Thunderbird without lightning is fine.
The only difference between thunderbird and more traditional mail apps is that while it does have menus similar to a desktop app, like skype its basically a web app using the firefox engine which is using the chrome engine.
It can run different clients fron irc to mail to rss to news so I guess we could call it a net shell to be technical.
I am not sure if traditional mail programs exist, with the event of tablets and other things, short of going to a universal app, a web app or web shell like this is probably a good transition.
Its not perfect, but just like nvda it and its browser companian firefox, see monkey, and the mozilla brouser and mail client before it is modular.
Its what attracts me to the system.
