I saw from another message that you were following the correct procedure before the program changed.  But I'll give you the link to the tutorial so you can see information about screen review or anything else the tutorial covers.  It is not for the current version of NVDA but most of the information is still current.  Not all, however so you may want to ask about something that doesn't work.

NVDA numpad 6 is an object navigation command to move to the next object.  It sounds to me as though you want to read the status line.  The command to read the status line is NVDA key end.  I don't use word so I don't know if that is where the information will be displayed but using the read next object command is unlikely to just happen to move you to such information in circumstances like this. 
 
Based on what you are hearing, there is no next or previous object where you are.  If you are in a dialog, you may be able to move up and down in the dialog by using the read previous line and read next line.  Those commands are just plain numpad 4 and just plain Numpad 6.  If you don't understand the difference between the different ways of reviewing text on screen, I can send you a link to a tutorial where such matters are explained.  I haven't looked at the sections of the tutorial to cover the information but the tutorial is popular.

I’m working with some documents in MS Word 2016 and having trouble with the “Find” command, I am pressing Control/F and entering the text I am looking for. Then I press NVDA/numpad 6 to hear the number of occurrences of the text I am looking for. That’s the part I can’t get to work. NVDA/numpad 6 is just telling me “no next”. If I try NVDA/numpad 4, I get “no previous”. What am I missing? Thanks.

Greg is doing what I put in the Microsoft Word with NVDA module.  Which worked great when I wrote it.... Evidently Microsoft have changed how that find toolbar works, yippee!

Ok, if you type your search term, press TAB twice and it will say "Previous result".  You can then press NVDA+numpad 4 (laptop: NVDA+shift+left arrow) to move to the previous item, which is the number of results.

If there are no results, when you press TAB twice, it will say "Tab control, Results tab selected".  There is a piece of text before that (and before the headings and pages tab headers) which reads "No matches" but it's not proving easy to get to.

The good thing about Office 365 is that you may not need to wait for Office 2019 for things to be fixed, added or updated.  The bad thing about Office 365, is it's proving to be a moving target in trying to pin down exactly how to do some tasks.

This is the perfect example - visually, that find toolbar doesn't look any different to how it previously look, so most users wouldn't even noticed any change, but it's often little changes like this which can easily trip up keyboard and screen reader users.

Regards

Quentin.

I use JAWS as my primary screen reader, but have begun using NVDA now that I have installed the Elequence and Vocalizer voices.
Does NVDA have a "read all" command like JAWS? and how do I get the keyboard to echo words rather than every character?
 
Thanks,

Which brings us full circle as far as your average home or business user goes:   It's neither safe nor secure, and hasn't been for some time.

When you add in the fact that the version of IE that runs under XP is not even allowed to access certain websites (by them) and cannot handle many contemporary web coding standards you end up with a bad situation just from a usability perspective.

There are myriad really, really good reasons that no computing professional will ever tell you that it's A-OK to run an unsupported operating system, any unsupported operating system, and particularly if it is interacting with cyberspace.  They have a finite shelf life, and the ones that have been around for decades bear minimal resemblance, under the hood, to their original forms in all kinds of functions.  They are being actively supported and changed as circumstances dictate.

Re: question please, Re: [nvda] accessing jean's sight.

 

You'd think with the cloud as it is, that you could just lock it all down, have a cloud system handle things like this, cloud systems can and do handle stuff like this.

Look at what happened when bits of google/ amazonaws dropped off the face of the net for a bit a lot of the net died so again they allready handle most of the net they can probably handle the rest if given the right instruction.

Yep, that's exactly what happened. There are things hackers can do to change dns entries if the dns servers aren't locked down, (or if the hackers are persistent enough, they can do it even if the dns servers are locked down if the hackers can guess from where updates are allowed), then it's a simple matter for said hacker to change dns records to point elsewhere. Generally, this sort of thing happens when hosting companies leave their dns servers open to updates from anywhere (not just their own servers/networks), and as a result, it becomes an exercise in record guessing for the hackers in question). Unfortunately, a lot of hosting companies still don't lock down their dns records even after repeated hacks like this, either because they don't know how (someone really ought to teach isps that dns configuration is more than just copying some text files and dropping them into your dns directory), or because they think they can't lock down things because they have updates coming from too many locations (this is false, but often times, it's easier to leave dns servers open to facilitate such updates), and so, hackers have a field day with dns records, and the poor domain owners usually have to deal with the fall-out). Not fun for anyone but (presumably) the hackers in this go around. <sigh>

I honestly don't see the draw of all of this nonsense, but apparently, someone gets something out of it, which is why it's done, but I never did figure out what the point of it all was.

In any case, it appears the problem is (for the moment) solved, and the site should be operational for the time being, until somebody gets it into their heads to go make said changes again.

Hi guys


it is gene from New Zealand who has the Accessibility Central.net website that is been diverted at the moment. it is not my website so please do not go to it just in case.


until it is sorted out or hosted elsewhere i have zipped the website up in a program called 7 zip file manager which was used to do it.


you might need a program like that to access the contents of it.

you might have to make a folder first then put all the files into it.

then it is a matter of going to the index file and pressing the enter key on it. to get to the information.


the zip file has been scanned with anti virus and malware programs and it says it is clean.

If you want to download the zip file it is going to be put into a drop box account which i will share on this list if you want it until this is sorted out.

the drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/ujcz7ui1i7qxp58/Accessibility%20Central%20Website.zip?dl=0
the copy or back up is from the 19 th of July if it is all there and it looks like it.
not the thing i would usually do but just in case the info is lost for any reason i would hate it not been shared as it was doing for the community.

Re: Creating a YouTube channel and uploading to it

 

well once you have a google account I think in youtube you just go to your profile, and put one in I in fact think its sort of allreaedy there I had to go through some lengths to make sure I didn't have one at all but google will offer to set one up for you and you just follow a few links.

Uploading yeah not sure there is an upload link but thats as far as I have got.

Re: XP warnings

 

Well it depends on what its used for.

Xp is quite secure as long as you don't have to go online via standard net.

I mean xp imbedded is still used in eftpos terminals somehow.

Chances are if all you do is connect through some server for whatever you need and not directly through to the net the server is the thing that needs securing and all thats connected to it.

But yeah, just be happy politicians do not write or build our computers.

Hello,

To those warning of the vulnerability of the XP operating system, perhaps
you should direct these at the UK Ministry of defense as the brand new 3.5

The defense minister says it’s quite safe as the security surrounding the
operating system is more than adequate and, of course, we all trust

don’t we?
Perhaps it’s not connected to the internet?

I am stoked to see it back in its place and not been redirected like in the last week.

 

it seemed really weird though that after the site was drop boxed for the list after that not sure how long but reports started to come in that some people could see the website even if it was going up and down.

Hi guys

 

it is gene from New Zealand who has the Accessibility Central.net website that is been diverted at the moment. it is not my website so please do not go to it just in case.

 

until it is sorted out or hosted elsewhere i have zipped the website up in a program called 7 zip file manager which was used to do it.

 

you might need a program like that to access the contents of it.

you might have to make a folder first then put all the files into it.

then it is a matter of going to the index file and pressing the enter key on it. to get to the information.


the zip file has been scanned with anti virus and malware programs and it says it is clean.

If you want to download the zip file it is going to be put into a drop box account which i will share on this list if you want it until this is sorted out.

the drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/ujcz7ui1i7qxp58/Accessibility%20Central%20Website.zip?dl=0
the copy or back up is from the 19 th of July if it is all there and it looks like it.
not the thing i would usually do but just in case the info is lost for any reason i would hate it not been shared as it was doing for the community.

Hi guys


I can see the website on my side of the world now cross fingers it never happens again.


I am stoked to see it back in its place and not been redirected like in the last week.


it seemed really weird though that after the site was drop boxed for the list after that not sure how long but reports started to come in that some people could see the website even if it was going up and down.

Hello,

To those warning of the vulnerability of the XP operating system,
perhaps you should direct these at the UK Ministry of defense as the
brand new 3.5 billion pound aircraft carrier has XP as it’s operating
system. If the warnings are correct, that’s frightening.
The defense minister says it’s quite safe as the security surrounding
the operating system is more than adequate and, of course, we all
trust politicians

don’t we?
Perhaps it’s not connected to the internet?
