One of the things that drives me crazy as a sighted instructor for screen reader learners is the fact that there are now tons of websites that present what are links under the guise of buttons as far as the visual presentation goes.  I will often say to a student, "Use the 'b' shortcut to jump around the buttons until you hear . . .," when that seems appropriate only to find that what appears to be a button in reality is not.   It's getting even harder to tell now with the "flat look" being all the rage and there being no attempt to give visual 3D-ish effects to a button.  Buttons appear as a non-photographic graphic rather than an imitation of a button with shading, etc., and effectively are like what used to be called hotspots (and probably still are when you're talking about different areas of a large photograph on which various areas can be activated like a button or link).

I went to that website and it is possible that there are some of those evil "looks like a button but is actually a link" situations, but I'd need a specific page to test that out.

Hello:

I notice that on some websites buttons don't work with NVDA. For instance,
on the music website bandcamp.com, one can play songs and albums. However,
when I prebbs a play butson with NVDA nothing happens. I still use JAWS
infrequently, and when I recently tried JAWS with bandcamp.comeathe play
bustons worked just fine. Is this a bug in NVDA that should be reporsed, or
must I change any specific settings? Thanks so much for any suggestions
and/or assistance.

I don't know what you are seeing as buttons.  I went to an album and I found items that are clicable, each track is clicable.  But I didn't see any buttons.
 
Does it matter if you are signed in or what you are looking at?

Re: different configuration profiles and different dictionaries

Nop, having two different dictionaries to the same application, I don't think possible...
Unless you use a different voice for each profile and you can set two different dictionaries, one for each voice...

two configuration profiles. For example profile A with dictionary A (in
synthetic speech) and profile B with dictionary B (in synthetic speech).
Dictionary A and B are very different. For example, when working in

When working in profile B I want "US" to be pronounced as "US". Is that

Windows 10 App Essentials add-on version 17.05.1 released

 

Hi everyone,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of Windows 10 App Essentials version 17.05.1. The only difference between this and the previous release is inclusion of a new search suggestion sound. More info can be found at:

https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/tag/17.05.1

 

As always, the new add-on is just an update check away.

 

For citizens who’ve joined us recently: Windows 10 App Essentials is an NVDA add-on that enhances support for Windows 10 controls and apps. Features include sounds to indicate appearance of search suggestions, progress announcement during update downloads and installation in Windows Update, improved support for various apps and so on.

 

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: NVDA with lefthanded keyboard

Gene
 

When I made my comments, I was thinking that the numpad was in the usual place.  Regardless of its location, insert on the main keyboard and down arrow on the main keyboard is the best way to execute the command unless you remap it.  It may be found to be easy enough that remapping isn't necessary or advantageous.  the numpad arrow keys, 2 and 8, don't duplicate the main keyboard arrow keys when NVDA is running.  They are used in screen review and in combination with the numpad insert for object navigation.  If you use numpad insert, you are duplicating the main keyboard insert but you still must use down arrow on the main keyboard.

Yes, but  if his numpad is on the left side, then the capslock key would
be considerably closer to the numpad (and presumably the arrows) than it
would be on a normal keyboard, that's why the suggestion was made.
However, since the insert on the numpad works just fine, I don't see any
reason to modify the keyboard configuration to laptop or to use the
capslock key, just use the insert and numpad arrows to do things, it
should work just fine.  The zero on the numpad doubles as an insert key,
so there should be no issues with reaching the various NVDA functions.
I don't have a keyboard with the numpad on the left, but I'd sure not mind
one, I'm (mostly) ambidexterous myself, and sometimes having to reach over
with the right hand is irritating, I use the capslock key for that reason
myself, so I can use whichever hand I'm comfortable with at the moment, so
I have both enabled myself, even though I don't use a laptop keyboard or
layout.  It's all about what works for any given individual, and that's
the nice thing about many many programs, including NVDA, there's usually
more than one way to do things, which means there's likely to be something
that fits any given situation.

Re: NVDA with lefthanded keyboard

The default keys can be redefined with the Input Gestures dialog.

NVDA also works with Sticky Keys, a feature built in to Windows which allows you to press modifier keys once and have them stick until another key is pressed.

Re: NVDA with lefthanded keyboard

Where is the insert on the main keyboard.  You can use either the insert on the numpad and down arrow or the insert on the main keyboard and down arrow.  the caps lock when used as an NVDA key, duplicates all commands that are insert plus key or keys combinations.  You can use the insert even if you have capslock enabled as an NVDA key.  It isn't one or the other.  It enables another NVDA key.  It doesn't stop the others from functioning.
 
You said the person can't use his right hand so I tried both inserts and down arrow using my left hand.  Insert on the main keyboard and down arrow is easy to do with the left hand.  Numpad insert is not convenient, though I was able to do it with some annoyance by using my thumb on the numpad insert and my little finger for down arrow.

I'd like to introduce the Sao Mai accessTech Magazine to all of you because we've released the first issue with contents translated into English. People who care about this, please visit at http://bit.ly/2qlFI6Y

For people who care about: this magazine was first release in about 2008, which publish contents about technology for the blind, in both software and hardware. You’ll find news, articles, tips and tricks related to technology for the blind user, such as tutorials about screen reader, computer maintenance, tip to work better with a program…etc.  Until now, most of contents are useful for Vietnamese blind people, but we’ll try to make it useful for international user in the future.

Hope this useful for you.

Hi,

Is their a way to re-enable the adons or is it better to install the older version and upgrade?

I've done some searching, and it appears that the latest version of kodi, 17.0 disables unnone addons now, by default.

That's whay it wasn't giveing me no speech.

Hi,

Brian: It was called xbmc before. Through a plugin, it can output to
various screen readers in Windows, Mac and Linux. It also supports
SAPI5 in Windows.


Matt: Press F12 once or twice until you hear two beeps (if Kodi does
this sound when it starts, ignore this last sentence). If it still
doesn't work when pressing the arrow keys, you may have SAPI5 as your
speech engine, and a voice which is not working as the selected voice.

Cheers,

Hi, subject pretty much says it all.

I installed kodi, and the screen reader add on.

I'm getting no speech from it.

Anyone on this list use it, or happen to no of a list for other kodi
users?
