Hello,
Once you have hit control plus J tab a time or two and you should land
on a heading that says today. This is the downloads you have done
today. The first one under this heading should be your current
download. If you arrow down a bit you will hear a line that has the
path where the download is going. This line will also have the speed
of your download. If you go down one more line you should hear the
percentage. It will be read as a normal number like 34. I don’t think
it says percent but this is the percent of your download.

Re: Using Adobe Digital Edition Reader with NVDA

 

Yes but you can use codex to remove drm, you then can convert the resultant epub to whatever you want.
It won't work on an epub player after conversion it will be corrupted but you should be able to convert that to another format but codex was able to do it straight it doesn't just use calibre for everything.

Re: reading progress down loads in google chrome

Gene
 

Do you mean download with Firefox instead of Chrome?  It sounds as though the progress bar isn't accessible in Chrome.  How much does it matter?  If it's a long download, checking off and on should give you a pretty good idea of whether it is getting near the end.  In addition, to hear progress bars when downloading, you have to leave the computer in the download window which means that you can't use the computer while the download is in progress.  It seems more trouble than it's worth.

Re: Announcing immediate release of Enhanced Touch gestures add-on version 17.03

I don't doubt you in the least, but it's clear that I'm doing something wrong apparently. One finger gesutres work maybe 75% of the time, but add any more fingers, forget it!
 
If it helps, this is a Microsoft Surface 3. not a pro, just a plain old Surface 3. Also beware, not a surface 4. Just a 3 running Win10 Home 64 bit.
 
I should add that I've tried with Narrator, and though I don't understand all the narrator gestures, I can! tell you that they do seem to consistently work, just not with NVDA, nor JFW.

Also, there's a reason the addon is called windows 10 add on essentials.
There's plenty of folks not using windows 10 yet, and if NVDA is to stay
compatible with those users, rolling the entire functionality of the addon
into NVDA would require a whole lot of if statements in lots of places to
ensure it was running on windows 10 before trying different functionality.
I'm guessing that's the main reason it's an addon at this point.

Hi! Thanks for help. I tested that version and it is really great. I also have an updates about 4-th version of this software. When pressing enter on that menu buton, we should scrill down with arrow keys. NVDA doesn't reads the menus, but it moves. it depends in which context we are using that button. Sometimes there is one button, which ic open. Otherwise, When I try to create a autotext, I press autotext menu and then press down arrow once. Bingo! I am there and then pressing enter activates the item. After that, tab key is working for navigation just fine.

BTW, How to insert a symbol " in that ptorgam? When I am trying to type ", it types the left double angle brackets, but not that. I am currently copying that from notepad and then pasting it in the place where I need it. so, how can I type it?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Headers in Microsoft Word

Commands such as control o, control n, etc. that bypass menus and ribbons often work.  Shortcuts that rely on menus generally don't work in ribbon programs.  And, as I said, the kind of short cuts such as control o, control n, etc. aren't actually shortcuts, even though most people call them short cuts.  They are accellerator commands.
