You can try sending the text to an e-mail account. On my phone, though Ive seldom done so, I believe I did send a text message or two as an attachment. Or getting sighted help should allow you to solve the problem unless the text is limited in time and would time out before you got the assistance or received the message on your computer and looked at it. You may need someone to be present when you go through the procedure. Or there may be a disability number you can call.

But whatever the case, by far, the likely problem is that you aren't getting adequate information from the phone message. Though there may be other possibilities, none of them seem to make sense.

Hi well straight after that message was received a load of us found smtp
prompts for log on password.
When you go to follow the links it asks if they can send you a verification
code to the mobile number they make you put in when you open the account.
this is sent. It sounds like four characters and there is an unlabelled
field on the page to enter it. It also says in the help that after doing
this you will be asked to change your password and agree to use an old
insecure email client, but I never get that far. Instead it just comes up
with an unauthorised access message and sends you an email with a link
back to another page to get another code again.

Its like Groundhog day.
They seem to be deliberately suggesting that all who have not changed their
password do so but need the code to verify its really you. I can only deduce
that its either that the field is the wrong one or the code read by my dumb
phone is incomplete. Sadly the phone has no way to step through the
characters in the message it just says fy8d or whatever its is.

Are you saying you can actually send email through yahoo after that
message?

Brian,

I'm gathering you're referring to the e-mail message from Yahoo entitled,
"REMINDER: Secure Your Yahoo Account," though given the amount of haranguing
they've been doing after the announced-years-later password breach it could
be another.

I could, and did, ignore that reminder because essentially it's a
solicitation to turn on 2-step verification which I have no desire to do
(and don't use it for accessing Gmail via Thunderbird, WLM 2012, and Outlook
2010, either, for which I use IMAP access, not POP).

I haven't gotten anything that requires a code be sent to a mobile phone,
though, as part of a verification process.

Many people have an address they use through yahoo and an email client like
tbird, OutlookExpress and wlm.
It seems in the last few days Yahoo have forced most of these people to go
to the log in page and ask for a text to be sent to their phone to verify
them then choose another password.
However when I tried this yesterday, I found that it all worked up until I
put in the four characters from the text whereupon it told me I was not me
and sent an email to me telling me it had had attempts to access my account
from an unauthorised person.
Obviously pop3 is working and the smtp server is what has been locked out.
Does this ring any bells. Now my guess is that either due to nvda reading
the wrong field description has meant I entered the code into the wrong
place,or the phone speaking the characters is not reading some of them,
maybe some punctuation or something.
Has anyone got this to actually work?

If its the former reason it should be possible to work around it if I knew
where to look for the text, but if its the latter I have a 'dumb' phone and
it is what it is, and so I have little hope of fixing it. Incidentally their
help number wants

$100 to fix it over the phone.

Seeing as the problem is of their own making, I've a good mind to advise my
friends to abandon it and get a gmail account which I understand can not
only be enabled for pop3/smtp, but can collect email from other accounts as
well, though no idea on how to achieve this. Maybe there is a tutorial
somewhere. I'd hope gmail does not use capchars as none of us have any way
to read them.

Slightly off topic but thought it was right to highlight this issue as
others might well be affected as well and somebody might have solved it.
Incidentally could not figure out how to post to their forum either, Yahoo
that is.

Off for lunch.

Re: New windows not always detected

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

Coming in late to this one, and like others no longer have the original message. I posted the other day that sometimes the update for nvda screen opens behind other running aps, and I've also noticed that sometimes a Firefox boot up does not register at all unless you mess about with changing the focus. My initial feelings have always been that some access event is being missed as even on fast machines the log contains watchdog activity such as the core is frozen. and to me that means nvda is effectively suspended and cannot monitor things. I stongly suspect that the programs or events are taking all the resources, maybe only for a split second but its enough to cause the problem so even in process things are not registerd.
Cannot prove it and would have no idea how other screenreaders would work around this, but I put it out there as a suggestion.

Hello,

I'd like to ask if anyone else has encountered the following:

When launching an application, for example by hitting enter on Mozilla
Firefox on the desktop, NVDA sometimes fails to detect there is a new active
window. It will not automatically say anything, and pressing NVDA+t will
still yield "Explorer" as if the desktop still had focus. However, pressing
tab clearly shows that Firefox had focus because it performs the expected
action of jumping, for example, out of the address field and into the search
field.

For an experiment I gave it a full five minutes to see if it just takes an
awful lot of time, but no luck. So, window activation events seem under
certain conditions to be able to pass under NVDA's radar.

It might be worth noting that I noticed this not long after a reboot and
the dust might not have fully settled in terms of background tasks starting
and stopping.

Kind regards,

Felix

2. Press the Applications key or Shift+F10 to open the context menu for the status bar.

3. In this menu there are a number of items which can be shown or hidden by pressing enter on them.

4. Press escape once you have added and removed the status bar items you like and then Shift+F6 to get back to the open document.


While this will tell you the column number I have not found a way to get NVDA to report the horizontal position of the cursor in inches. To me this is even more important than the column number because if a line is centered its first character will still be called column 1 though it does not line up with column 1 of left aligned paragraphs or even with other centered paragraphs. Is there a way to get the horizontal position information in Word documents from NVDA?


Thanks, and hope my answer is helpful.

Hi,

Can you try checking for update again after restarting nVDA?

Cheers,

Back in the days, I even sent a buglog to Joseph, and he couldn't seem to figure out the problem.

I'm definitely not here to play the blame game, so please please know that! Over all NVDA is just! fabulous! but this is one area that no matter what I try doing, no matter what hardware I use, I just cannot seem to get working as advertized.

Chris.

I find nvda very bad with touch as well. I hope at some time the devs
might do something with touch. I thought it was just me, but to many
users seem to report that they can't work touch. I know someone will
come back and say it works well with me but I have about 5 tablet devices and just can not get nvda to play well with touch I have given up.

Usually, when I try, NVDA just goes totally haywire. This isn't a
recent thing either. As I recall, Joseph, you and I talked a while
back on the phone about this. I still to this day on my MS Surface 3
have the same results, if not worse. Half the time flicking and double
tapping doesn't work, and anything requiring multiple fingers practically never ever works.

Yes, I do have the latest version of the addon installed, and yes, I'm
on NVDA 2017.1, but even still no improvement.

Even on my mother's HP laptop with a touch screen, I tried over there,
and again, no dice. Same oddities.

I've practically completely given up 100% on touch. Just for the
record, JAWS is doing the same thing both on my Surface as well as on
my mom's laptop. I'm usually incredibly good at picking up a touch
screen device, and within less than a day, I usually have it pretty
well figured out, so this isn't anything like me performing the
gestures wrong, that I know of.

Chris.

Hi all,



For those who are using NVDA on toushcreen computers: Enhanced Touch
Gestures add-on 17.03 is now available. This version resolves
incompatibility with NVDA 2017.1 (specifically, it now deals with
multi-monitor setups). More info can be found at:
