Does this though, in effect put you back into the main site though. I thought it did. Not everyone wants to keep on going back to the access page.

Folks,

Amazon Access (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ref=mw_access) is very accessible. It has a search field at the top. Put in what you want, open the specific link the search provides, and order.

Yes, I think the one issue I do have with amazon is that there is just too much stuff on a page when you finally get to ann item or list of items.
Its not that its inaccessible, just far too busy and messy.

Interestingly enough, my comments about his are often echoesd by many sighted users who find it a bit like some flea market where loads of people sell the same stuff and everyone is shouting, figuratively speaking to try and get your attention at the same time. Perhaps its time they used a more sensible menu system instead of using the one big pudding approach they do now.

I've tried personally to navigate with JAWS, NVDA, and Narrator all 3 with
Firefox, Chrome, and IE. I even tried with Edge, which, given the state of
accessibility in general with Edge in consideration, all things considered,
even that! worked fairly decently.

I also tried, just for the record with Chrome using Chromevox, and I've even
just tested navigating around with Safari on the mac with Voiceover, and in
all above cases, I'm currently finding at least on my end that things are
working as expected.

Do you have another browser? I'm not saying the site hasn't changed but
I'm skeptical. I would expect to see a flood of messages on all three sites
I follow if it had to the extent you describe. If you have another browser,
try it.

Slightly OT: I have my gmail full and want to delete some amount of mail Can anyone help?

Ketan Kothari
 

Hi friends,

I am using NVDA 2017.1 and wish to delete a substantial amount of
mails. How do I do this? I believe I will have to use standard view.
Please do guide. I would like to avoid sighted assistance if I could.

Thank you.

With best wishes,

Ketan

Re: Web Ads

Kwork
 


Yes, you are correct on both accounts. Reader view doesn't work 100% of the time, and sometimes it'll cut out text it's not supposed to, but that's probably only about 1 to 2 percent of the time. If you're suspicious, turn it off. The method Gene gave is correct. Turning it on and off is a per article basis, and not a global setting.

Some sites no longer allow you to use them with ad blockers but that should significantly cut down ads since many sites still allow them. 
 
When reading articles, Firefox has a feature called something like reader view.  When on a page with an article, issue the command alt v for the view menu.  Up arrow I believe once to reader view and press enter. As I recall, you can turn it off in the same way.  On a lot or most pages with articles, that eliminates a lot of extraneous material.

Thank you very much for your assistance. I will go to Gene's website and check out the materials there.


I have been using things all right so far. My one major issue so far is that the Freedom Scientific braille display I am borrowing has become unusable since upgrading the computer. I'll search to see if I can find a solution to this problem.


Again, thank both of the fellas for their help.

The page was put together when i first went up to Windows 10 with some updates. it is things that most people would change or not in Windows 10.


There is some audio tutorials and the rest are written in sections.


There might be other stuff you might be interested in from off my

tutorials for nvda along with other blindness related material.


You can jump down by headings to the different sections on all of my pages.


hope this pages help you to customize windows a little.

Try this way which actually is for setting a home page and doesn't use the open pages item which was discussed earlier.  That may be able to be used in a similar way but it is not the home page setting.

 

Open settings.

Tab until you get to a check box that is also misidentified as a button that says show home page.  Check it with the space bar if it isn't checked.

Tab to the link that says change.  Press enter.  If nothing happens, manually turn browse mode off and press enter. 

A dialog opens.  Do not turn browse mode back on.  You are in a list of two radio buttons.  Up or down arrow to the radio button that says show this page.  It will be checked when you arrow to it.

Tab once and type the address you want to use.

Tab to the ok button and press the space bar.  You should now see that page come up when you run Chrome.

hi

 

To set your home page you will need to do the following from my web site.

 

Setting a home page in Google Chrome
To have a certain page come up every time that you go into Google Chrome (such as a certain newspaper you may wish to read online), press the Alt key until the menu comes up or use the Alt key + F to bring up the menu. Arrow down to the settings menu, then press the Enter key. A new page will come up like a webpage where you can use single letter navigation keys to navigate it; for example H for headings, B for buttons and so on. Only certain single letter navigation keys are supported.
You can use the letter H to jump down to a heading called “on startup”. From here you can arrow down until you hear NVDA say radio button, Open a specific page or set of pages.
Press the Spacebar to check the radio button.
Just underneath the radio button will be a link called set pages. Press the Enter key on it, then it will give you the option to put in your homepage address (for example http://www.stuff.co.nz).
Next, it will ask you (once it is entered) if you want to use the current page. Press the spacebar on this button, then tab to the ok button. Now, when you reopen Google Chrome, it should have your homepage set.

 

Actually my home page is set to stuff here still when i wrote it.

 

hope it helps.

Hi Gene

 

No it does not. I guess also i figured people would know how to use the search feature.

 

A section can easily be put into the written part. I guess also you might have to have a rough idea of what you are looking for under the settings section but then again the search will pull up any results.

 

I will add this search one in along with the how to not display images in google chrome part of the tutorials.

 

I got some more stuff to go up to the website so will post it up there in the next few days for later reference.

Hi NVDA will work out of the box with google chrome.

 

I do have a tutorial on the basics of google chrome going through a few of the settings i think is both written and audio tutorial that can be found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

When you get there you will need to jump down by headings to a section  called how to navigate google chrome with nvda.

 

It does not cover about not displaying images as most people want to see them if they are sighted.

 

You can jump through the settings menu when it is open by headings to the different sections or arrow through the sections. You might have to change between browse mode and focus mode for some sections.

 

Any how if you do want to turn them off you will need to go to the following section when google chrome is open.

 

Press the alt key until the file menu comes up then go to settings, then press the enter key.

Next go to advanced settings it is right down the bottom of the page then press the enter key.

 

When the new pages opens you will need to look for a heading called privacy. Just under it will be a button called content settings. Press the enter key or space bar on it. When it opens Under this section you can also jump down by headings locate one called images and just underneath it is a check box that says do not show any images make sure that one is checked and not the one that says show them.

 

Then close out of google chrome and the new settings will take place.

 

 

if needed i can add that to the written part of the google tutorial in the next few days for later reference for any one who wants to do it.

Try this way which actually is for setting a home page and doesn't use the open pages item which was discussed earlier.  That may be able to be used in a similar way but it is not the home page setting.

 

Open settings.

Tab until you get to a check box that is also misidentified as a button that says show home page.  Check it with the space bar if it isn't checked.

Tab to the link that says change.  Press enter.  If nothing happens, manually turn browse mode off and press enter. 

A dialog opens.  Do not turn browse mode back on.  You are in a list of two radio buttons.  Up or down arrow to the radio button that says show this page.  It will be checked when you arrow to it.

Tab once and type the address you want to use.

Tab to the ok button and press the space bar.  You should now see that page come up when you run Chrome.

hi

 

To set your home page you will need to do the following from my web site.

 

Setting a home page in Google Chrome
To have a certain page come up every time that you go into Google Chrome (such as a certain newspaper you may wish to read online), press the Alt key until the menu comes up or use the Alt key + F to bring up the menu. Arrow down to the settings menu, then press the Enter key. A new page will come up like a webpage where you can use single letter navigation keys to navigate it; for example H for headings, B for buttons and so on. Only certain single letter navigation keys are supported.
You can use the letter H to jump down to a heading called “on startup”. From here you can arrow down until you hear NVDA say radio button, Open a specific page or set of pages.
Press the Spacebar to check the radio button.
Just underneath the radio button will be a link called set pages. Press the Enter key on it, then it will give you the option to put in your homepage address (for example http://www.stuff.co.nz).
Next, it will ask you (once it is entered) if you want to use the current page. Press the spacebar on this button, then tab to the ok button. Now, when you reopen Google Chrome, it should have your homepage set.

 

Actually my home page is set to stuff here still when i wrote it.

 

hope it helps.

Re: NVDA and google chrome

I haven't played with it for a good while because I have done almost nothing with settings since I played around and looked at what I was interested in.  I think you have to manually turn brows mode off when in the edit field and I don't recall now if you get better results if you leave it off or turn it back on again when looking through the results.  Also, when you do a search for many things, one result will say content settings and that
's likely to be the result you should follow to find what you are looking for.

Hi Gene

 

No it does not. I guess also i figured people would know how to use the search feature.

 

A section can easily be put into the written part. I guess also you might have to have a rough idea of what you are looking for under the settings section but then again the search will pull up any results.

 

I will add this search one in along with the how to not display images in google chrome part of the tutorials.

 

I got some more stuff to go up to the website so will post it up there in the next few days for later reference.

Hi NVDA will work out of the box with google chrome.

 

I do have a tutorial on the basics of google chrome going through a few of the settings i think is both written and audio tutorial that can be found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

When you get there you will need to jump down by headings to a section  called how to navigate google chrome with nvda.

 

It does not cover about not displaying images as most people want to see them if they are sighted.

 

You can jump through the settings menu when it is open by headings to the different sections or arrow through the sections. You might have to change between browse mode and focus mode for some sections.

 

Any how if you do want to turn them off you will need to go to the following section when google chrome is open.

 

Press the alt key until the file menu comes up then go to settings, then press the enter key.

Next go to advanced settings it is right down the bottom of the page then press the enter key.

 

When the new pages opens you will need to look for a heading called privacy. Just under it will be a button called content settings. Press the enter key or space bar on it. When it opens Under this section you can also jump down by headings locate one called images and just underneath it is a check box that says do not show any images make sure that one is checked and not the one that says show them.

 

Then close out of google chrome and the new settings will take place.

 

 

if needed i can add that to the written part of the google tutorial in the next few days for later reference for any one who wants to do it.

I don't use anything other than the default settings, and NVDA and chrome work just fine.

hi


To set your home page you will need to do the following from my web site.


Setting a home page in Google Chrome
To have a certain page come up every time that you go into Google Chrome (such as a certain newspaper you may wish to read online), press the Alt key until the menu comes up or use the Alt key + F to bring up the menu. Arrow down to the settings menu, then press the Enter key. A new page will come up like a webpage where you can use single letter navigation keys to navigate it; for example H for headings, B for buttons and so on. Only certain single letter navigation keys are supported.
You can use the letter H to jump down to a heading called “on startup”. From here you can arrow down until you hear NVDA say radio button, Open a specific page or set of pages.
Press the Spacebar to check the radio button.
Just underneath the radio button will be a link called set pages. Press the Enter key on it, then it will give you the option to put in your homepage address (for example http://www.stuff.co.nz).
Next, it will ask you (once it is entered) if you want to use the current page. Press the spacebar on this button, then tab to the ok button. Now, when you reopen Google Chrome, it should have your homepage set.


Actually my home page is set to stuff here still when i wrote it.


hope it helps.
