If you use alt down arrow to open them, you just hear

And if you toggle browse mode back on, you're yanked back up to the top of the ckecout page.
This is with NVDA 2017.1 and Firefox 54. I've not tried edge, as accessibility there isn't great from what I hear.


Re: Would it be possible to access the Macbok Pro's touch bar on windows 10 using NVDA? #msftaccessibility

If this device is actually running under windows and if it uses standard Windows APIs, then maybe, but I have never run one operating system on another so I'd not knowhow this is achieved. My gut reaction is that this may well not be a windows opogram, perhaps some low level bit of software running in the background.

Hello Folks,

Have anyone experienced the Touch Bar feature on the MacBook Pro on Windows 10 (bootcamp) using NVDA? I just would like to know how to locate the F buttons without physical touch. Would it have some tigger sound when I hover or pass on them?

Re: Reading password protected image pdf using NVDA OCR

Gene
 

Whatever the procedure is for recognizing material with NVDA, it's using a free OCR system.  I doubt it's as accurate as a for profit system.  But with any OCR program, where precise figures are concerned such as an exact numerical amount, while the recognition might be accurate, I wouldn't trust it.  If it sounds correct, it probably is but it may not be recognized with 100 percent accuracy no matter what OCR program is used.

Sadly I am unsure if any newer toshiba units continue to use amd hardware which is nice.

nvidia stuff can be good but is just that bit more querky to handle.

Hi Florian,


If you setup NVDA to use the "Laptop" keyboard layout, it uses different keystrokes which don't expect a number pad. Some of the other regular keystrokes are different too, such as NVDA+a to read all (instead of NVDA+down arrow) and NVDA+l to read the current line (rather than NVDA+up arrow). Particularly see the following sections of the User Guide:


Object navigation: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#ObjectNavigation
Review cursor: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#ReviewingText


The other keys are scattered throughout the User Guide.



Regards


Quentin.

Hi everyone!
Do you know the functions of numpad keys? For example, Numpad5 Speaks
the word of the current navigator object where the review cursor is
situated. Pressing twice spells the word. Pressing three times spells
the word using character descriptions.
However, there is a problem. Some laptops such as laptops for gaming
don't have 2 home keys, 2 end keys and 2 page up and page down keys, or
they don't have a key for toggling the numlock on and off and they can
come with the numlock on as default, without providing the possibility
of its deactivation. What can you do in these situations?
Another question: Do you know the NVDA rotor that can be used with
NVDA+Control+arrows? Well, a member of Romanian community suggested the
adding of these functions to NVDA's rotor. What do you think about that?

Here's an example.
Note: this is not a definitive example, just the one that happened most recently prior to composing this message and is thus fresh in my mind.
I have drives in my computer that go to sleep when they aren't being accessed. If you try to access the drive, any program used to access them stalls until the drive wakes up, and NVDA stalls right along with it. The whole computer isn't stalled, just the foreground app and NVDA. I know this because I can alt tab out of the app and, for example, hit a key to start an audio file playing again. NVDA doesn't wake up again until the stalled app starts moving.
This is probably going to be another one of those situations where nobody else can pin it down, or: I can't duplicate this so you are on your own, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Some programs, Thunderbird and Outlook, will apply message rules to IMAP accounts.  others, Windows Live Mail, and the old Outlook Express, won't.

Depends on the email client. Most work automatically though. You set up the
account as told to, then when you go to the account it should ask if you
want to download folders, then when you open a folder it normally downloads
headers and the whole file when you go into that message. Some clients can
be set up so they download it all when you go there or you can ask it to
download all messages in all folders. You can also often hide folders you
are not interested in.
 Some clients retain messages while others seem to keep them only for that
session.
 Also of cours you cannot normally use message rules on Imap servers as the
sorting is done at the source. You can often make other folders and use them
manually to stare messages on the server but this depends on where the email
server is Google seem to do their own thing in this regard while others  are
more traditional.
 At least, normally you can get access to the spam folder on Imap which you
do not get on a pop3 server.

Re: [attention to joseph lee, sticky keys with NVDA

Hi joseph

 

A friend has managed to sort out the problem for me,  below I sent you a copy of his instructions, thanks for your help.

 

Hi Anthony,

 

Do you have the latest version of NVDA (2017.2) installed?  If so, please try the following:

 

* Start NVDA

* Turn on Sticky Keys

* Press the NVDA key twice quickly (this should lock the NVDA key)

* Press F12 twice quickly

 

And you should hear NVDA speak the date (and not the time).

 

Press the NVDA key once to unlock. 

 

Regards

 

Anthony

To remind you again what is the problem, when I press the insert plus f12 to check the time it works, but when I press it twice to read me out the date it doesn’t work.

And that happens withother commands where I have to press them more than once.

I am a single handedperson so to be able to use my laptop keyboard I need to use the sticky keys.  

 

My problem is that I am noticing that the sticky keys are interfering with the capslock, 

 

And the other problem is when I come for example to press the insert plus f12 twice to check the date it doesn’t work.

 

And that happens also with the other commands that we have to press them once, twice and more to do do certain things.

 

In my opinion the sticky keys are not working as they should with NVDA.

 

Can you please do something about it to be resolved?

Dear NVDA community:

 

For those on NVDA users and add-ons lists: a few days ago I announced Project Hidden Singer/Big Bang, a project to restructure code in Windows 10 App Essentials and say goodbye to old workarounds. This is partly motivated by the fact that, with NVDA 2017.3, features from this add-on will make their debut as part of the screen reader itself, so the add-on is no longer required for some major tasks. The below announcement is just a first step in this project, with the complete picture emerging by September 2017.

 

Announcement text:

 

As part of NVDA 2017.3, NV Access, together with Joseph Lee, a Windows Insider and a noted NVDA expert in United States, have developed a set of features designed to improve user experience for Windows 10 users using NVDA. Prior to the upcoming release, an add-on called Windows 10 app Essentials have included features such as sounds to indicate appearance of search suggestions, announcing top search suggestion in braille and various workarounds for Windows 10 and various universal apps. Joseph, the author of the Windows 10 App Essentials, is delighted to announce that these features will be part of upcoming NVDA 2017.3, scheduled to hit the air sometime in August 2017.

 

As part of this work, I (Joseph Lee) would like to announce three important things:

 

  1. A fall release of Windows 10 App Essentials add-on will require NVDA 2017.3. This will be in place no later than October 2017.
  2. For those using NVDA snapshots (master and/or next), a new “pilot development” channel will be introduced. You may occasionally hear references to “try builds”, “fast ring snapshots” and what not, but in context of this add-on, it all refers to the pilot channel. This channel will not show up in update channel list, as this channel is designed to receive continuous feedback i.e. this channel requires NVDA snapshots. Anyone using development channel of this add-on along with NVDA master or next snapshots will be moved to this channel, as code in this channel parts ways with compatibility layer code, as changes made to NVDA snapshots will be reflected in these builds. If you are using Windows 10 App Essentials development snapshots under NVDA stable (2017.2, for example), you’ll stay in development channel (sometimes called “slow ring”) in order to preserve compatibility layer routines.
  3. Speaking of snapshot combinations: starting from June 28th WinTenApps snapshot, those on pilot development channel will get a build that is equivalent to NVDA next snapshots. This snapshot removes compatibility layer in place for search suggestion announcement, as this is no longer required if you are on latest master and/or next snapshots as NVDA itself will handle this for you.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,
What level of importance did you rate your ticket; Low, medium, or high. That depends how fast they will respond to you. If it's on low, I've seen it take two weeks. Medium it'll take a few days, and high it'll be with in twenty-four hours.
Also, I can't remember for sure, but I think Vocalizer expressive did the same thing when using it with JAWS.

I tried the vocalizer voices for NVDA and found one little bug. When asking the seller Code Factory they don't reply to my questions.
The bug is no matter what setting you have set in NVDA under voices for how to indicate capital letters it will Speak Cap before a capital letter. I have it set to raise the pitch for capitals. This issue has been verified by another user.

If you want to use the mail app specifically, I'm not sure.  As I understand matters, Windows Live Mail works well on your machine.  There may be other reasons but the only reason I am aware of that you stopped using it is because, when composing in the edit field, you had to press alt twice before you could read what you had written.  This caused you to leave and return to the edit field.  If that is the only problem, why not use that program?

Ben, Rosemary and all

I expect that NVDA is being used.  Is the latest Add On being used for Windows 10 provided by Joseph Lee?  Did this problem occur with the latest add on version and not with the previous add on version? 

 

When you say that Outlook crashed, do you mean just once?  If so, once in how long a time?  Any program may crash on occasion.

Jaws crapped out in the Mail app, but NVDA is still cruising.

Hi, everyone,

 

I was using outlook but it crashed so I thought I’d use the mail app again. Now when I hit enter on a message, all I hear is “message document”. Is there a setting I might need to change?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

 

Rosemarie

I do have the add-on installed.

If someone doesn't send one, I can probably find out where to get it.

If you want to use the mail app specifically, I'm not sure.  As I understand matters, Windows Live Mail works well on your machine.  There may be other reasons but the only reason I am aware of that you stopped using it is because, when composing in the edit field, you had to press alt twice before you could read what you had written.  This caused you to leave and return to the edit field.  If that is the only problem, why not use that program?

Hi, Gene,

 

Yes, I do have the latest add-on by Joseph Lee. Outlook started crashing a few days ago. I called the Microsoft disability line and thought the problem was solved but the crashing happened again. That’s when I decided to try the mail app again. I don’t know what else to do now.
