adobe audition and NVDA

Shaun Oliver
 

Does anyone know if Adobe audition works with NVDA out of the box, or, do I need an add-on for it?

 


mixing application

Marisane Moruthanyana
 

Hi guys

I like music and think of becoming a DJ.

My problem is that the well known application used by sighted guys is
screen reader inaccessible.

I am particularly talking about virtual DJ.

Does anyone know of this application and has ever used it with a screen reader?

I find it difficult to use with nvda and jaws.

Do you know of any application I can use that is doing nearly the same
thing as virtual DJ?

Come to my rescue.

Wally


Re: How do I check a check box?

 

Erik,

          I forgot to say, but should have, that this does not appear to be an issue with NVDA, nor even with Open Office, per se.  There are just too many layers of conversion going on from the original source and something is getting lost in the conversion before you ever start working with the thing in Open Office.

Re: How do I check a check box?

 

Erik,

              I have the same version of Open Office and, interestingly, I just had a crash while trying to play around with this form.  I can replicate the crash if I tab beyond the "end" of the form trying to jump to the next (and non-existent, in this case) fillable item.

              The above being noted, the form itself probably has accessibility issues.  I have not used "fillable forms" in Open Office but have in MS-Office and, based on what you've supplied, this thing appears to be a form template but not set up that the end user can only enter data in specific form fields.  Some of what you've filled in shows up in advance of the text boxes that I presume the developer probably thought you'd be landing in and then typing in.  There is only one checkbox, at the bottom of page two, and even when I click on it with the mouse the object itself is not announced (making me believe there's no alternate text that describes its purpose) nor do I get any feedback from NVDA when I check or uncheck directly with the mouse.

                I took it upon myself to "go to the source" and this form downloads as an MS-Word document.  When opened under MS-Word it behaves as I'd expect - a template with fillable fields and those fields are the only thing you can touch.  It's still horrible from an accessibility standpoint because the fields do not have any descriptive text associated with them to tell you what you've landed in and the checkbox is the same.  Checkbox is announced but the question would be, "Checkbox for what?"

                If I open the MS-Word document under Open Office or Libre Office, even retaining that format and not converting to ODT format, neither behaves at all well with this form.  They both go back to treating it as if the whole document should be editable rather than traversing just the form fields and letting you fill them in.

                I'm sorry that this is what I have to report.  Given "the source" of this form it would be entirely legitimate to complain loudly that the form itself, in MS-Word, is not accessible in its native format.  They need to add at least descriptive text, if not that and help text, to the various form fields so that anyone accessing it with Word and a screen reader can have a clue as to what they're expected to be filling in when they land on a given field or are checking to indicate on a checkbox.  I doubt you'll get any traction as far as compatibility with OpenOffice or LibreOffice.  Organizations don't, and can't, create electronic forms for every conceivable office suite.  That being said, if they wanted to be more "universal" about it they should be using fillable PDFs, which are supported under Adobe Reader and can be saved after being filled in.

Re: Unable to install NVDA on Windows Vista laptop

Hi,

There is a known issue with the NVDA installer and Windows Vista. The solution is usually to make sure that all updates from Windows Update are installed before attempting to install NVDA.

Hope that helps.

Re: Good Browsing Hygiene, was: Kaspersky antivirus, how accessible?

 

These days, with the exception of the Clamwin open-source antivirus, I don't know of a single antivirus or internet security product that does not do "on access" scanning for downloads.  Windows Defender, the built-in that comes with Windows 8 and 10, does that.  I have AVG, and Panda Cloud on two other machines in the house and they do that.  Avast did that.  You can even get an open-source add-on for Clamwin called Clam Sentinel and then Clam Sentinel does that job.  The timing can be different, though.  Most that I'm aware of will scan anything you attempt to download from the internet when you attempt to download it.  When it comes to e-mail most do something similar at download time, while there were a few products that did the scanning when you attempted to open a message or specific attachment.  The latter is becoming the exception rather than the rule these days.

When it comes to web filtering and security suites the default settings differ.  When I took a look at the Sophos home page their statement, "With just a few clicks, block access to sites that may contain inappropriate content or malicious software," suggests that you have to turn this feature on.  I've always done something similar with a product named Spywareblaster.

Shared computers, particularly those shared with, shall we say, "less sophisticated" users tend to need a bit more cyber armor than those used by a single user who consistently practices good computing hygiene.

There is no "one size fits all" though there's a wide "one size fits most" style of setup.

           What version of Open Office?

My about dialog states AOO412M3 october 2015.  I just downloaded it a couple of days ago so it should be up to date.


If the form in question is downloadable, or you have a blank version, you can feel free to e-mail it to me and I'll see what I can do to activate a checkbox using NVDA 2016.1.


Here is a link to the form.

            If you're a mouse user typically a left mouse click on a checkbox acts as a toggle.  You might want to get focus on the checkbox object and hit Num Pad Divide (desktop keyboard layout) or NVDA+[ (laptop keyboard layout) to see if it has the same effect.  


This is another issue. My virtual machine is showing severe neglect.  I am in the process of fixing it as we speak, but in the current configuration I have no nvda key.  Most upsetting.  I wanted to try the suggestions of NVDA plus left bracket and nvda plus enter but I'm on a bit of a time constraint and it may take a long while to get my keyboard back in shape.

Thanks for looking.

Brian

Hi.  we don't have a lot to go on here.

1.  is user account control turned on?  if so, does it come up?

2.  what anti-virus program do you have?

it maybe be blocking the download or the running of the file.  for example, if you have internet explorer and smart screen filter is on, it will likely prevent the file from opening unless you explicitly allow it.

does the installer come up?

if not, what happens when you try and run the file.

write privately if you want.  btw, on vista, anything less than service pack 2 will give you odd results I suspect.

hello, and what is your question now?
with nvda it is very easy to navigate gmail with firefox.
but why don't you use thunderbird?
it's completely free!
while there is no internet, you can read the mails offline.
and when there is internet you can download all mails in a split second.
i think that's in this case the best solution you can get.
cheers

if you want you can correspond in dutch because i read your name i think you're dutch.
but in that case in a pm only because this is a english list.

Yes me too The issue often is when a computer is shared with the sighted and the young.

Most of the time the things I find are not a real security risk, they normally do stuff like vector your searches via a proxy so they can track you and no doubt send you rubbish. Conduit springs to mind.

Ari,

It was never a common technique, and you only need concern yourself with it if you are suddenly being presented with a window or pop-up window that's coming up from nowhere and has no connection to anything you were doing. I don't know if there's a connection between the context menu that allows you to exit and the "Red X" exit at the upper right corner of the screen.

Seriously, if you keep your browsing hygiene even reasonably good none of these things will need to matter to you. While it's always good to know what you need to do if "the worst" happens, "the worst" seldom happens unless you're being careless to begin with.

I honestly can't remember the last time the antivirus on any of my computers quarantined anything or any of the other antispyware or antimalware programs found anything, either. I am not nearly as stringent or assiduous as some others are, as I've already noted. I am of the computing attitude, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." The metaphorical ounce of prevention is not difficult to do on a consistent basis.

I've recently posted on how to disable protected view in Microsoft Office programs. There have been times where there have been howls of protest that one simply can't and shouldn't do that. I make a note that you should do this with the proviso that you are watchful about precisely what MS-Office files you're willing to open based on knowing who and where they came from. If you know your stuff is coming from people you trust, they have security suites on their computers, it's being routed through an e-mail provider or cloud storage provider that virus scans everything, and you have your antivirus set up to scan anything you download before it gets saved on your machine then, really, how big a risk are you taking?

Re: Good Browsing Hygiene, was: Kaspersky antivirus, how accessible?

Do most antivirus programs automatically scan downloaded files when you start downloading them, or is this a feature you usually have to turn on? I just got Sophos, and am still getting used to it. I'd like to have a feature like this on, just in case.


Thanks, Ari

Re: Good Browsing Hygiene, was: Kaspersky antivirus, how accessible?

 

Ari,

         It was never a common technique, and you only need concern yourself with it if you are suddenly being presented with a window or pop-up window that's coming up from nowhere and has no connection to anything you were doing.  I don't know if there's a connection between the context menu that allows you to exit and the "Red X" exit at the upper right corner of the screen.

         Seriously, if you keep your browsing hygiene even reasonably good none of these things will need to matter to you.  While it's always good to know what you need to do if "the worst" happens, "the worst" seldom happens unless you're being careless to begin with.

         I honestly can't remember the last time the antivirus on any of my computers quarantined anything or any of the other antispyware or antimalware programs found anything, either.   I am not nearly as stringent or assiduous as some others are, as I've already noted.  I am of the computing attitude, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."  The metaphorical ounce of prevention is not difficult to do on a consistent basis.

         I've recently posted on how to disable protected view in Microsoft Office programs.  There have been times where there have been howls of protest that one simply can't and shouldn't do that.  I make a note that you should do this with the proviso that you are watchful about precisely what MS-Office files you're willing to open based on knowing who and where they came from.  If you know your stuff is coming from people you trust, they have security suites on their computers, it's being routed through an e-mail provider or cloud storage provider that virus scans everything, and you have your antivirus set up to scan anything you download before it gets saved on your machine then, really, how big a risk are you taking?

Holy crap! I never knew that! That's insane! Is there actually a difference between the red X and the close icon you can bring up that has minimize, maximize, Etc.? I thought that close icon was an X as well.


Thanks,
Ari

To extend this to what other "computer geeks" think about good Browsing (or Computing in General) Hygiene, I'm posting a direct link to a thread entitled, Windows Defender, on bleepingcomputer.com.  Although it started out as a question about Windows Defender as an antivirus program, several regulars offered some excellent advice about computing hygiene.  One of the points I hadn't given much thought is not closing down what appear to be malicious windows using the red X at the upper right corner.  This is something a screen reader user wouldn't likely have to consider often, since most I know will use ALT+F4 to close a window, but it is an interesting point that even the normal way of dismissing a window via mouse pointer can be used as the entry point for malicious software.

By the way, the poster named usasma, who is a regular and "geek extraordinaire," also happens to be visually impaired.
