I have had no problems using the add on.  I've used it a number of times today.  Just because something is not designated as stable doesn't necessarily mean that it won't work well.

Introducing Enhanced Touch Gestures 17.07 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of Enhanced Touch Gestures version 17.07 (aka Project Ailee). Version 17.07 of this touchscreen add-on for NVDA packs tons of new features and changes, some of which are documented below.

 

The new version can be found at:

https://github.com/josephsl/enhancedTouchGestures/releases/tag/17.07

 

Notable additions include:

  • Touch command passthrough: there are times when you need to interact directly with a touchscreen as though NVDA is not running. You can now do so by doing two things: assign a command to a script that turns on touch passthrough (you can find this under Input Gestures dialog), then go to a new dialog named Touch Interaction in NVDA preferences menu and configure “pause NVDA’s touch commands” option between 3 and 10 seconds (default is 5).
  • Touch keyboard and standard versus touch typing: In iOS and certain other platforms, when pressing keys on the touch keyboard, you have an option between touch typing versus standard typing where you perform double tap or lift your finger to press keys, respectively. After installing version 17.07 of Enhanced Touch Gestures, standard typing will be in effect. To change back to touch typing, open Touch Interaction dialog and check “touch typing” checkbox.
  • Due to changes made in NVDA, this add-on will now require NVDA 2017.1 or later.

 

Known issues: Touch Interaction may appear under NVDA preferences menu on computers with no touch support. I plan to fix this as part of 17.07.1.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi gene

 

Yes, you are correct, I think that’s what referred to, the virtualize add-ons.

 

But these things are completely new for me,I don’t even know what’s there use.

It is evidently referring to an add on.  But which one?  If the person doesn't know the exact name, what does it do?  I think I read recently that there is a virtualize window add on.  Is that what is being referred to?

Re: NVDA not announcing paste or copy when using control-C or control-V

Hi Gene

I did find the link to the add-in and am going to try it today. Thank you.

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA not announcing paste or copy when using control-C or control-V

 

I just tried the add on.  I didn't test it thoroughly but it worked correctly when I tested it in Notepad and when copying a file to the clipboard.  As I've said for a long time, if JAWS and System Access can do this, and know when material is actually being copied, pasted, etc., then I doubt it is that difficult to do. 

 

My impression over the years is that it is a matter of ideology for the main developer or developers.  They claim that a screen-reader shouldn't give information that is not available to sighted users.  That may be true in general.  But ideology, when too rigidly held to, produces undesirable results at times.  And I'd bet that sighted people do get some sort of notice.  I don't know what it is.  Does the material appear different in some way or does something else happen?  At any rate, finally, this is being addressed through an add on, though it should be in NVDA itself. 

 

I would say, regarding the add on itself, that the word text and item are unnecessary.  The user should know whether he/she is copying text or a file.  I don't want to be told what I should already know.

I think its not an item unless its been added recently. There is certainly
an add on to do this, but its dumb, ie it does not actually check if its
worked, so just reports keys pressed.
 its been a long campaign on mine to get this built in but if I recall the

hi

 

Just make sure when you go to do it under that section it is for the NVDA folder. In that section you will notice other folders they have settings in them for other programs do not touch them.

Hi Jim

It should only uninstall the appdata where the settings are kept which is for the installer version. Usually if I have a good working portable copy, I will uninstall the installer version of NVDA then remove the appdata. Sometimes it is wise to reboot the computer so that all those settings are gone. Then, reinstall NVDA from the good portable copy of NVDA. There is a menu for it under tools, to do the installer version from your portable copy. Just follow the directions to install it. Is your portable version just the exe version on a USB stick or did you make a directory and make a shortcut to start it? When you remove the one from appdata it won't affect the portable version that you are using.

Hello Gene,
 
Yes the portable copy works for the font stuff.
Just to clarify, if I do as you say, is this going to uninstall NVDA? or just the appdata, I believe that, if I just uninstalled NVDA and then re installed it, I would have the same problem because my app data will still be there, I can certainly do as you say but will need to be prepared for NVDA not to work and have another screen reader ready so that I can install NVDA again. .
 
Sorry if I sound thick, but I would like to know what I am getting myself into.
 
Thank you for your help, much appreciated.

Hi

 

If you want to delete the app data? for nvda press the windows key and the letter R then type %appdata% then press the enter key.

 

one of the folders will be for nvda. you can either delete it out or go into the folder locate the nvda.ini file then rename it old which some do but find it easier just to delete the directory. Then use the alt  f4 key to close that window. then reinstall from the portable copy..

 

does the font stuff work on the portable copy correctly?

Well make a portable coppy of nvda and run it.

then go to %appdata% find the nvda folder and nuke it.

next uninstall and reinstall nvda but the first option should wipe your
settings.

I had issues with flash fxp that just didn't work, and I just ended up
removing the settings file folder which came from older backups, redid
the settings and put that back in.

I should say that this was happening before the Creator’s update.
All works well on my Windows seven system.

Hi Quentin,

 

Have you tried the web interface? I can read the reports but cannot identify where the problem is in the text. Is the word add-in accessible?

Hi Pranav,

 

I've never had a lot of success with Grammarly with the keyboard (for a mouse user, it works great, it highlights grammatical errors in many places, including forms you are filling in on the web).  A similar service, ProWritingAid, has a screen reader accessible interface: https://prowritingaid.com/en/Analysis/Editor?screenReaderFriendly=true 

 

Kind regards

Re: NVDA not announcing paste or copy when using control-C or control-V

Isn’t there an Add-on for the copy and paste announcement function?

Hi everyone,

I have not been able to make NVDA consistently announce paste or copy on the computers I am using in class with students.

My computer does, however, several of the 16 students I work with will not. Can someone guide me to the correct area in preferences?  I thought I’d went through everything. But obviously, I am missing something.

Thanks for any guidance in advance.


Re: NVDA not announcing paste or copy when using control-C or control-V

Gene
 

I just tried the add on.  I didn't test it thoroughly but it worked correctly when I tested it in Notepad and when copying a file to the clipboard.  As I've said for a long time, if JAWS and System Access can do this, and know when material is actually being copied, pasted, etc., then I doubt it is that difficult to do. 
 
My impression over the years is that it is a matter of ideology for the main developer or developers.  They claim that a screen-reader shouldn't give information that is not available to sighted users.  That may be true in general.  But ideology, when too rigidly held to, produces undesirable results at times.  And I'd bet that sighted people do get some sort of notice.  I don't know what it is.  Does the material appear different in some way or does something else happen?  At any rate, finally, this is being addressed through an add on, though it should be in NVDA itself. 
 
I would say, regarding the add on itself, that the word text and item are unnecessary.  The user should know whether he/she is copying text or a file.  I don't want to be told what I should already know.

Did you install any add-ons? NVDA does not do this by default, unless
you are in browse mode, where it announces copied text.

Re: NVDA not announcing paste or copy when using control-C or control-V

 

also when you select document with nvda selection, if dont press other
keys, after pressing f10, nvda says all content that you selected if
you use nvda+shift+up arrow.
