Hello,
I use the VLC and I think it's highly responsive in comparisson to other media players. It is also possible to open, close files and even read subtitles with it.
There is also an addon which makes this program more accessible with nvda.

Dear Group

 

I am writing to you on behalf of the Department for Career Development in Worcester South Africa.  This department falls under the auspices of the Institute for the Blind (soon to be Kaleidoscope), which is also situated in Worcester. 

 

The Department for Career Development is a unique institution in South Africa in that it is the only college spicifically for blind people.  Note that other colleges and universities do allow the blind, but our college aims to rehabilitate those who become blind at a later stage and prepare blind school-leavers for their future career or university.

 

We teach some theoretical subjects, such as Communication and Marketing Management, but our main focus is on computer literacy and telephony.  We also provide a braille course for those who became blind later on or those who only used uncontracted braille in their school career.

 

Our computers used to run on JAWS, but due to the Windows upgrade and the major cost of JAWS, in "South Africa (due to the weekness of the Rand),  we decided to switch over to NVDA. 

 

We have found, besides the advantage of NVDA being free of charge, that it is a more user-friendly programme.  Other advantages include the optional spelling error indicator and the ability to read Afrikaans fluently.

 

As already mentioned, our department trains adult persons becoming blind later in life.  Many of them have had no prior computer training, due to their background.  Thus it is necessary for purposes of our training, specifically on computer, that the students need to hear NVDA say much more than required by a more advanced, or well adjusted blind person.  For this reason there are some changes/additions which are necessary for our line of work.  These include the following:

 

Speak the following by default:

 

Upon enter:  in MS Word, say "ENTER"

Upon enter: in MS Excel speak new cell address,

Upon pressing escape: say "escape"

Upon pressing Ctrl-c: say "Copy to clipboard"

Upon pressing Ctrl-x: say "Cut to clipboard"

Upon pressing Ctrl-v: say "Pasted from clipboard"

Line number by request (similar to insert+period in JAWS)

Cell address by request, both in MS Word tables and MS Excel (similar to insert+c in JAWS)

Upon pressing Ctrl-t: say "Hanging indent"

Upon pressing Ctrl-m: say "Indent" and the distance (alternatively, say only the distance)

Upon pressing Ctrl-s: say "Ctrl-S"

Upon pressing Ctrl-q: say "Ctrl-Q"

Upon pressing Shift-down arrow: say "selected"

Upon pressing ctrl-arrow (left or right),When the punctuation level is set to "none or some", read all the punctuation under the cursor

Upon pressing Shift-F3: speak capitalisation changes

Upon pressing Insert-F: add line spacing to what NVDA already says

Upon reading the status line: add line number to what NVDA already says

Upon pressing CTRL-G or F5 say go to

Upon pressing F8 say extended selection on

 

Please bare with us, we might request some more additions as time goes on.

 

Allow me to congratulate the developers of NVDA with a product that, genuinely, makes a difference to the lives of many blind people.

 

Warm regards

It would be a useful toggle switch to have braille navigation move the
system focus/carret. This would be especially useful, for example, when
reading books or other documents strictly with your display. That way, when
you leave the document, your carret is where you left it, just as though you
used your arrow keys to navigate.

hello.
i tested both libreoffice and open office and read many online
materials and documentations about them.
it depend on your need that which one you select.
but i mentione for you sometechnical points that i know andare
prominent for me.
1/ libreoffice is fortunately more independent and less need for java.
but open office is more relies on java.
for example: libreoffice only needs java for macros, data base etc.
but open office needs java for macros, data base, saving to xml and
some vizard like letter, fax, agenda and web page.
libreoffice saves inboth microsoft office 2003 and new office formats
like: doc, ppt, docx, pptx etc.
but open office only saves in microsoft office 2003 formats.
2/ libreoffice supports word count and character count in all of the
format which support in its version before version 5.
but in version 5.0 and later, it only supports word and character
count only for its special format which is .odt.
open office does not have this option.
and word-character format is special feature of libreoffice.
3/ both programs support many formats for openning and range of
libreoffice formats is more wide.
for example: libreoffice even supports many formats of mac for openning.
4/ libreoffice in version 4.3 shows its messages very accessible by
tab key and you can easily press tab and with using home to go to
first character and pressing control shift end, you can select it,
copy it and peist in other place.
but unfortunately the messages are not accessible easily in other
programs and you should nvda screen review and other nvda cursors to
access it.
5/ libreoffice has somecloud online services and open office does not
have.
for example: google drive, one drive, sharepoint, etc.
6/ libreoffice since version 4.4 has an option for openGL and open
office does not have.
its very strungly recommended to deactivate it, in libreoffice tools,
options, libreoffice, view.
7/ say all does not work in both libreoffice and open office and you
should read your documents paragraph by paragraph.
8/ somesaid that open office is more stable and libreoffice has more
features that open office has not.
9/ open office translated to limited languages and you can select and
install only your own language.
but libreoffice is translated to more than 110 languages and when you
install it, it recognizes your locale language in your windows.
it installs only english and your local language.
10/ libreoffice help file should be installed separately.
but open office help is installed by default.
11/ if you want more information, you have refer to this link for
example, and also email me.

what you say is correct, it's very cheap but the only problem with rumola is that it processes a capcha as soon it is availlable even if you need it or not. when you don't need it there is one capcha solution less.
it was nice if it was possible to press a shortcut if you need a capcha solution.

*Subject:* Re: suggestion: giving google chrome a try [nvda]
Performance degradation in current Firefox

Unfortunately, Chrome accessibility has a bit of a ways to go. I
wish it didn't. I wish I could reliably use Chrome without the
strangeness that persists, but I can't. With Canary, some menu
items are not read out by NVDA, but are by Chromevox. Others are
read out by NVDA and not by Chromevox. I don't want two screen
reading packages running. When navigating the web and going to a
new web page, I seem to have to push tab after a new page loads,
otherwise NVDA doesn't seem to see the content on the page. When
doing a search on the Google page and when navigating around
Chrome in general, pressing H to navigate by heading only works
sometimes, but sometimes locks up until I again press tab to
force it to get back to the content. The sign-in process in
Chrome does not work with NVDA. I needed to use Window-eyes to
get it to read the content. JAWS was also unable to read it. And
I will post another thread about this, but Hangouts doesn't work
very well. the Hangouts app seems to be totally inaccessible to
next branches of NVDA and Canary. And the keyboard shortcuts
that Google outlines in their manual at
https://support.google.com/hangouts/answer/3112005?rd=1 don't
work when navigating to hangouts.google.com
<http://hangouts.google.com>, and the article doesn't specify
where exactly these shortcuts are supposed to work. Actually
many hotkeys that Google outlines interfere with
browser-specific hotkeys. So I would be happy to transition to
using Chrome, as Firefox is becoming awful, but that would mean
a huge loss of productivity for me. So if you have been able to
get Chrome to work more reliably, I am interested in which
version of Chrome and which version of NVDA, as well as any
settings changes that you have made for your specific set-up. If
this is localized to just me, I am willing to do some
troubleshooting, but on three computers Chrome's behavior seems
to be the same. About the only improvement I have seen to Chrome
Canary is that NVDA reads out a few additional menu items that
it wasn't reading before. I might try resetting Chrome back to
default settings and removing all plugins to see if that has any
effect, but this installation of Chrome is pretty new, so I'm
not sure if that will help or not.

Thanks.
