Using Adobe Digital Edition Reader with NVDA

Amber Pearcy
 

Hi all,

One of my textbooks is an Adobe Digital Edition, and it seems that I have to use Adobe's Digital Edition reader to access it. I can see the table of contents, but I can't access anything beyond that. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I am getting further behind with each day that I cannot figure this app out! :(

Best,
Amber

Re: Headers in Microsoft Word

The Gamages
 

Hello,

It may also be worth mentioning that the shortcut is a toggle to open
the headers and footers dialogue and to close it after reading or
editing.

Most 2003 shortcuts still work in ribbon versions.



Best Regards, Jim.

Hi,

Thanks for this. I do wish those old shortcuts were still documented
somewhere. I'll give that a try next time I create a few of them.

There might be other shortcuts that work, but for me this is the one I

Well when I checked for the update it installed well rather opened the
brouser to the addon download.
I thought the idea was to download it itself and install it itself.

Hi

I am rather confused about the update feature of W10AE. First of all I
can't find an update button associated with the app entry for version
17.03
in the manage add-ons dialog. I activated the help button which took me
to
the download page from where I downloaded the stable version 17.03A. I
then
checked it appeared in the manage add-ons dialog and it was running
normally. A few moments later a dialog appeared saying there was a new
update of W10AE available, would I like to install it. I replied yes and
it
installed. On checking the Manage add-ons dialog again, it showed the
version as 2000225DEV was installed



I have never knowing installed any development versions, so I don't
understand why it has suddenly started doing this. Advice appreciated.

I should have said the command is likely not to work if you are using a ribbon version.  I don't use word so I can't check.

Unless you are using a version of word with menus, it won't work.  What are technically called accelerator commands, which allow you to do something by bypassing menus or ribbons still mostly work.  Commands such as control for open, for example.  Ribbon programs have one menu.  In that menu, some things work as before in terms of short cut commands.  You can probably open the save as dialog with alt f a.  But that's because that command is in the menu and Microsoft intentionally preserved the old short cut sequence.

Re: offtopic: please sign the petition: Telegram should be accessible for visually impaired

Mallard
 

Yes, I wrote to them a couple of years ago, and the answer sounded more or less like "we can't be bothered".


I wouldn't waste my time with devs likethose.

If you want a fair alternative to Whatsapp, try Signal.


When I last used it, it was very accessible. It's a lot more private, and Whatsapp themselves use the encryption system developed by the devs of Signal...


If Telegram can't be bothered with us, why bother with them?

Hi Chris

There is no such thing as  a silly question. I will respond more fully off-list if you like, but in this instance, my question refers to looking up references once you have them.

Thank you for your note about Word. I did not know this..

I shall write you with a more complete answer off-list.

Take care

Re: Attach to email

Christopher-Mark Gilland <clgilland07@...>
 

There are way too many variables in this to fairly be able to answer correctly at this point in time.
 
For example, What website are you using? What type file format are you using, and is that filetype supported by the website? What version of Windows are you running, and finally, this so called website you're using, is it a webmail based system, or is it just a website in general you're trying to attach a file to? You said e-mail, so I'm assuming! it's a webmail type thing.
 
What e-mail client are you using for this purpose?
 
Chris.

You are evidently using a web site to send e-mail.  You don't tell us which one.  What you are describing is not the standard way such dialogs work.  I assume that after you press the add attachment button, a dialog comes up.  If so, shift tab once or if necessary twice.  You will be in a list of folders and files as you are in My Computer.  Move back through the list with the back space.  Move forward by pressing enter on something such as a folder.  Find the file you want and press enter. 
 
I've almost never added an attachment using a web site but that should be all you have to do.  As I said, I've almost never done this but I believe that you will have to allow time for the attachment to upload, if it is at all large.  I haven't done this enough to know if you are notified on the page when the attachment has finished uploading.

I’m gonna post this to several lists, so beware.

 

For those of you who use Soundcloud, how do you upload thereto? The iPhone app only lets me stream and download.

Hello all, I think today was a good day for NVDA, it's developers, it's community, and well, modest little oll me.

I'm expecting to be hired by a company that does business to business technical support. Today, they finally brought me in for my first consultation. Six weeks ago, I registered my need for a screen reader by way of accomodation, and recommended jaws and NVDA to be tested for compatibility with the company's software. This morning, when I arrived for my consultation, I found the company had opted for NVDA.
They sited significant performance breaks over jaws, and the fact that they have python programmers on staff to handle scripting as reasons for choosing NVDA as well as the fact that I had stated a preference for using it.

This morning I demonstrated that NVDA could be successfully used with sales force, a ticketing and databasing system commonly used by telecom companies. There are some design issues with sales force that need to be worked out, but things are very close to being fully accessible out of the box. If any one has experience using sales force, It would be great to hear from you.

The people I spoke with this morning were very receptive to the openness of NVDA, and so I hope that when their implementation goes into effect, they will contribute to the NVDA community accordingly.

So, it's not perfect yet, but all in all I have had a pretty successful day thanks to NVDA.

Have fun,

Erik
