From my point of view, this is is really nice to consider, and nothing could I bothered to heard that sounds. But, we will see if they will gonna add an option to disable the sounds in the future release. Only could tell confirmation to the authors of this app if they will added it.

These sound like little sound effects that were very intentionally there.

I don't hear these when I use JFW, so I'm thinking this is something in this update? That is really really cool, if that be the case. I really like them. Nice touch!

Re: Basic overview I'm navigating Thunderbird with NVDA

Hi


In parts of it it is. I can set up a event etc to tell me when i say get paid each week but do not really put any thing into it apart from that  and that is event that comes up weekly. I can also read what it says.


I do not think the calander interface is accessible but can have more of a sus.


By the way i just wrote up a quick tutorial on setting up a g mail account for thunder bird users so people can send and recieve emails with thunder bird. Probably post that later on tonight with some other stuff.

I have read a few times how people do not like the web interface and if they want to use thunder bird it is a much easier option.

To bring your mail contacts down from GMail, you must set up GMail from the web interface to an IMap or pop3 setting. This is a bit involved.  If you need further instructions, I or someone else can give them.

the other thing that has changed in mozilla thunder bird is where the attachments can be found now. They are under the message menu which should be stated in the tutorial of its move and as they used to be under the file menu to insert a attachment is still under the file menu.


Otherwise i do not think mozilla thunder bird has changed much as i use it all of the time.

A few years back i did a tutorial on using mozilla thunder bird along with navigating it and so on and also based at a new user to mozilla thunder bird.  this was  when written using nvda and still is the same concept to use. the chat part does not work with thunder bird with face book though but am sure other might when set up.


The tutorial can be found on my web site at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/accessible%20email%20client%20mozilla%20thunderbird.html

That link will take you straight to the mozilla thunder bird page i wrote and there is a couple of audio recording to.


you might find other stuff of interest on the website the nvda pages are written for the desk top computer and if you go to the home page it will take you to the main page where you can find other blindness related material.

Re: NVDA and google chrome

Brandon Cross <bcross3286@...>
 

About the only problem you're likely to have is some issues in multiline edit boxes where characters you backspace over are not read, and left to right character navigation with the arrow keys doesn't work quite right. For instance, Some characters are repeated even if they are not repeated in the text. This does not happen in FF. I also like FF's spell checking functionality better, Chrome's barely works, you use context key over a word that is misspelled, and no suggestions appear 90% of the time. Also, NVDA's in build spelling buzzer doesn't work with it.

Re: Slightly OT. Dropbox finally ditches xp

Gene
 

Abuse has nothing to do with public links.  As stated in a message sent to Drop Box users a week or two ago, support is being dropped for public links because, according to Drop Box, there are better methods for sharing files now.  All the files in your public folder will be kept.  They will be moved to another folder.  You will have to share new links as the old links won't work any longer.  All you have to do to get new links is the following:
Move to a file you want to share in the list. 
Open the context menu.
Down arrow to an item that says something like copy link to clipboard.
Press enter.
The link has now been copied.
Share it just as you did before except that you should be sure to change the 0 at the end of the link to a 1. 
 
While sharing your links again is an inconvenience, the procedure is almost identical to the one previously used for Public links.

Although they have been threatening it for some months now. today seems to
be the day when it happened.
 The last version which ran on xp was 13.xxx, and for about a month now its
been prompting people to update it. But today, it just sits there
permanently synching and doing whatever. Any attempt to run the latest
installer will end in a circular error of windows error in an entry point in
a dll file.
 On amd machines it will simply crash and stop working.

I am given to understand you can still get onto the web site but the desktop
client has stopped working.
 This coincides with the changes where you can no longer use links to the
public folder as a whole, for graphics etc or for  file sharing, which I
understand was seen as abuse.

OK back to your normal  messages.

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

 

Shaun,

          If you figure out how to go directly to the Delete button I mention in step 4, whether with NVDA or any other screen reader, please let me know.  I could not for the life of me get NVDA to find that button, and I suspect it's because of some design trick used for the web page or maybe it's one of those evil "links made to look just like a button" that's become trendy these days.

After struggling with this for a while I found an easy solution. If you have any mobile device, install the Gmail app. It makes it very easy to delete an entire mailbox included deleted our archive messages

Hi friend,


Open your gmail account in your browser. After doing so, choose a button called "Basic HTML view." When you switch to it you will be able to go to the checkbox areas pertaining to each mail message in your inbox by using the X letter. The mails that you want to delete are to be checked by the space bar. When you have done the checking, use B to find the delete button. Press it, and your checked mails will be sent to the Trash folder. If you wish to empty it too, the procedure is the very same. I use Mozilla Firefox to handle my gmail account. You can also engage other browsers, though.


If you wish to find the HTML view in Chrome, you are obliged to switch to the focus mode, for only then will you be able to find the very button by using tab and/or shift tab. If you use Firefox, be in the browse mode, and go to the very top of the page to find the very button, either.


If you wish to treat the Spam folder, the procedure of emptying is the same as already described. The only thing you should do is choose a folder you wish to treat.

Hi

What is described below is not for setting up your home page in Chrome.  The ‘Start Up’ section is just that, it displays whatever you want Chrome to display when it first starts up.  The home page is defined in the next section called ‘Appearance’.  The are a couple of controls in this section that are relevant.  There is a check box called ‘Show Home Button’, which puts a ‘Home’ button icon on the Chrome menu bar.  When activated this button displays the homepage but it’s function can be replicated using alt+home, so choose whether you need to display the icon or not.  The next control shows the url of the hompage.  If you want to change it, press enter on the associated change link.  In the subsequently displayed dialog box, select the radio button entitled ‘Use this page’, tab to the next control and enter the url of your preferred home page,.  note if you have the Google page open at the point when you invoke the Settings page, the URL for it will probably automatically populate this control.  Now tab to the OK button and press enter.  Press control+f4 to close the Settings page.           

 

Cheers

Chris

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.

Does your tutorial discuss using the search function in settings?  For efficient use of the interface, using the search feature is essential, at least for a blind user who has to tab through everything otherwise.

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.

Setting images not to be displayed is a good idea.  Images are one way in which malware may be spread.  Someone may present a link with a tutorial about how to work with Chrome settings.  The Chrome interface is different from Internet Explorer or Firefox.  But in terms of using it when you first get it, turning off images is the only setting I would say to change for safety.

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