Re: NVDA and Google Chrome

 

Well I have had updates and things seem fine, however google settings do have some sort of accessibility features button to install extra accesibility modules.

Having explained that, I'll say that I suspect that you are having an unexpected problem and behavior that is not generally experienced. Chrome has become increasingly popular with blind users and if this were a general problem, I expect I would have seen it discussed on at least one of the three e-mail lists I follow where such a thing would be expected to be discussed unless there has been a very new update of Chrome.

If there isn't any response, out of curiosity, I may put my Windows 7 machine online and let it update but there will probably be a good deal of comment from others.

It appears to me that every time you open Google Chrome it checks and
installs updates, so I am not sure if you can be running a out of date
version. Of course I could be totally wrong on all counts. Trying to
move to Google Chrome as I am fed up with IE crashing with that
wonderful message that IE has stopped working and needs to be restarted.

I am using the latest version of NVDA. Getting to the bookmarks does

Re: How to make input gestures application-specific?

 

Hi,
In this case, the most important question: did the add-on author expose this command in input gestures dialog? If so, then yes, you can change it there.
Cheers,

Re: NVDA and Google Chrome

Marten Post Uiterweer
 

First letter navigation is not ossible on the toolbar/bookmark list, but
you can create a folder in the toolbar and within that folder your links.
That wa you can use first letter navigation.

Chrome has imported my internet exlorer bookbarks. They appear in a
folder on the toolbar. When I open this folder with down arrow, I can
use first letter navigation.

NVDA and Google Chrome

Don H
 

Using latest NVDA and Google Chrome on a Win 10 system.
While reviewing a web page with the arrow keys I will come to a line that simply says clickable and nothing else. On other lines it may say clickable several times before giving the link info. I know this probably a issue of poor web design but is there a setting for NVDA to make it work better?
Thanks

Then, how can I isolate an input gesture to just be used in one application without going into making an add-on?

No. These changes are not tied to profiles.

Why don't you just change the overall shortcuts for the add-on?

Hello,



How do you change an input gesture in NVDA just for a particular
application?


I downloaded the Speech History add-on. As one of its commands, it
uses F12 to copy a string from the speech history to the clipboard.
But in Word, F12 brings up the Save As dialog. So, I want to alter
this input gesture just in Word to use Shift+F12 for the command from
the SpeechHistory add-on.



I tried making a separate profile in NVDA, but the change doesn't
seem to be linked to a specific configuration profile.


I am using Next builds of NVDA.



Thanks for your help.

I am using the latest version of NVDA. Getting to the bookmarks does work with hitting the alt key followed by spacebar then b. Still a little messy as it seems to open the bookmarks and put you on a random entry in the list of bookmarks and as you said first letter selection does not work. Doesn't seem that Google is great on their user interface.

Re: NVDA and Google Chrome

I just played a bit with the tool bar.  It appears that you can see folders if you have book marks organized in that way, but you can't use first letter navigation.  This is a major limitation and the tool bar would probably be unsuitable for people to use who have more than a very small number of book marks.

Another workaround (outlined on the issue I filed) is using caret browsing (F7).
