Re: Hearing new text in terminal emulator

 

Hi,

Actually, you can, but that’ll require weeks of effort depending on what kind of control it is and experience you are looking for. The best place to suggest this would be the add-ons ilst on Groups.IO.

Cheers,

Joseph

I doubt it.  NVDA doesn't have any sort of speak all command as JAWS and Window-eyes do to automatically speak text as it appears nor does NVDA have anything like what are called hyperactive Windows in Window-eyes or frames in JAWS that you can set to speak parts of the screen automatically as text changes.  NVDA is scripted, if that is the correct way to describe it, to automatically speak new text in some cases such as in the command prompt window.  But if you want it to do so in cases where it doesn't, I am not aware of any way to make it do so.  You may be able to have someone who works on projects cause NVDA to do what you want in the program.  I don't know where you would make such an inquiry.

 

Meantime, Window-eyes will still be able to be used for quite some time and you may want to use it for this specific purpose while swoitching to NVDA in general.

Subject: [nvda] Hearing new text in terminal emulator

 

Hi,

I’m using MicroFocus Reflection terminal emulator. How can I get NVDA to automatically speak  the new text that is scrolled onto the screen.  I have Report Dynamic Content changes turned on. But NVDA is silent as the new data appears on the screen.  Also, the text that I type at the prompt does not speak as I type.

 

In Window-Eyes there was a method that I tapped into called OnChildClipRendered which tracked all the text displayed to the screen.  Is there something similar in NVDA.

 

I need for the new text to speak as it is displayed to the screen. 

 

Thanks,

Chris

Were accessibilitycentral.net back online Gene NZ has the step-by-step instructions for reordering columns in Thunderbird using the keyboard (yes, to do drag and drop, but this can be done by keyboard).  I never saved those so I don't have them handy.

If anyone should happen to want a copy, and it is the official copy, downloaded about a week before Microsoft pulled it from its website, of the installer for Windows Essentials 2012 (of which Windows Live Mail is a part) you can download it by activating this link.  Windows Live Mail 2012 is still a perfectly serviceable e-mail client for POP and IMAP access, which is what most of us are using.

new member, just wanted to introduce myself

Ashley Wayne
 

Hello all,

I hope this type of introduction post is acceptable here.  Anyway, I’m a very new NVDA user, but am very happy with it so far.  I have been a long time jaws user, almost 20 years (now I feel old lol) so the transition has been interesting.  I often find myself trying to do jaws commands out of habit lol but I think NVDA is great and I am so appreciative of all the hard work that has been put into it.  I look forward to being a part of this list, and hope that all of you have a good day.

Ashley

Re: Strange computer crash on update of master today

Arlene
 

It sounds like there might have been some sort of conflict with your latest
updates. It might have had some conflicts with NVDA and addins you probably
have. I hope I'm wrong. I think that what it might be!

Windows 7. It got to the update bit, then froze as below.
I had to resort to the dreaded power button, so no real help in the log.
However I was also wondering what clipspeak was up to here.
Also find that Word occasionally gives out of memory warnings when the
clipspeak add on is used to paste or rather voice the paste, but it is not
really an issue, just that it thinks it is quite obviously. Here is the log
of the update version.

If anyone should happen to want a copy, and it is the official copy, downloaded about a week before Microsoft pulled it from its website, of the installer for Windows Essentials 2012 (of which Windows Live Mail is a part) you can download it by activating this link.  Windows Live Mail 2012 is still a perfectly serviceable e-mail client for POP and IMAP access, which is what most of us are using.

Strange computer crash on update of master today

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Windows 7. It got to the update bit, then froze as below.
I had to resort to the dreaded power button, so no real help in the log.
However I was also wondering what clipspeak was up to here.
Also find that Word occasionally gives out of memory warnings when the clipspeak add on is used to paste or rather voice the paste, but it is not really an issue, just that it thinks it is quite obviously. Here is the log of the update version.

Re: OE Classic is more accessible. Developers test with NVDA.

Gene
 

It is not as accessible as Windows Live Mail.  True, the differences in accessibility are minor but they can be very annoying.  The main annoyance is that in Thunderbird, by default, the subject is displayed first and the name second in the headers.  a lot of people want the name displayed first.  But you can't change this from the keyboard.  you have to drag and drop.  And how many people know how to do that, though it can be done. 
 
In Windows Live mail, the order of headings is fully accessible from the keyboard.
 
Also, Windows Live Mail has two features that Thunderbird doesn't.  One is the ability to jump to the default inbox from wherever you are in the message list with the command control I.  The second is that you can read all mail as plain text but if there is an individual message you want to read as html, you don't have to fool around changing settings.  You can just open the message and use the command alt shift h.  That message will be displayed as html until you close it and all other messages will continue to be displayed as plain text.  if you open the message you displayed as html again, you will have to issue the alt shift h command again to cause it to be displayed as html. 
 
If you don't like ribbons, you might not want to use it, at least the ribbon version.  There is an older menu version.  And you have to set message rules on the server if you use IMAP, whereas Thunderbird allows you to set message rules in the program.  There is also a quirk I won't write about here but if anyone is interested, I'll address it in a later message about reading mail as plain text.  It works fine for that but there is a quirk you need to know about to do this.

I personally don't understand why so many people hate Thunderbird. It is
the most accessible email client out there to date. I like it because,
like I said, it rests in my dropbox so never have to install it to
mmachines. At least the OE developers are working on making OE Classic
accessible. I wish they would open source the code though so that is
just me. I tried it for a while and like where it is going, even though
I am sticking with Thunderbird.



Re: OE Classic is more accessible. Developers test with NVDA.

It was not a mess for accessibility.  I use it.  Are you saying that because you don't like ribbons?  That has nothing to do with accessibility.  That is your opinion of ribbons.

Mind you we should not forget that the email client bundled with windows 7
was really a mess for accessibility in itself, and I have a sneaky suspicion
that  the OE classic looks a lot like that did.
 And look at the hoops we have gone through for the one in windows 10, which
is just a bog standard email app.

Why it seems to be so awkward for people to make email clients better than
Tbird when they can write stuff like Firefox and Chrome escapes me.

Below is a blog post on OE Classic and it's accessibility improvements.
While this email client is getting more accessible it still has a ways to
go. It runs on Windows 7 and up.

Re: Footnotes in Word Documents

James AUSTIN
 

Hi Ralph

I have just performed a very quick test. NVDA seems to read the two footnotes I have created without a delay. They were not long, nor did they spread across pages. I could create something, but would you be willing to share a copy of your document with me please? Perhaps we can work out together what is going on?

Thanks

James

Re: how can i get microsoft spi5engine

Gene
 

First, did you reboot?  If so and it didn't solve the problem, System Restore would very likely fix it.  It may be too much to hope for, most of the time when I suggest using system restore, it either isn't turned on on the users' machine or it isn't working properly.  
Far more often than a problem with how it works, it isn't turned on.  I hope it is in your case.  Unless people have some other reversion program, I consider it essential to have System Restore on.  If you do, you could run a restore point from before the problem started. 
 
Also, what do you mean by SPI?  Do you mean SAPI?  Gene? 
There may be a way to repair MSAPI5. 
 
Also, it may be that nothing is wrong with SAPI5.  I would think that a general message such as unable to load synth could mean that there is a problem with what3ever synthesizer is being used.  A synthesizer is not the same as SAPI.  SAPI is an application program interface that will run any synthesizer that is designed to run using SAPI.  So the actual premise of your question, that SAPI is corrupt or nonexistent if not at all certain.  What synthesizer are you using?  Because of the various possibilities and considerations I've discussed, System Restore, as reluctant as many people are to use it, may well be the fastest and easiest way to solve the problem.  People often cause themselves a lot of unnecessary problems because they don't want to run System Restore.  There is a certain amount of risk in running it, just as there is in running any program that works with files in such ways, but most of the time, if it works, it works properly.  If it can't work properly, most of the time, it lets your system finish booting and displays a message that it couldn't restore it and that your system has been unchanged.

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,
Andy
 


Reading ggogle docs sheets with nvda

Sylvie Duchateau
 

Hello all,
Has anyone tips on how to read google doc sheets with NVDA without editing them ?
When connecting to the document, I receive the message that I have to press a short cut to have it work with screen readers.
But then I don't how to have NVDA tell me the title of each cell.
Thank you for any tips on using this.
Best
Sylvie

Well they have been coming. I suspect you might soon get a bounce message. It might be worth going to the web site and checking what your settings actually are there.
I think there have been issues with one of the groups.io servers getting on a black list.

I want to have my accounts in seperate little boxes isolated from each other not in a tree of accounts as Live mail and Thuunderbird do also Tbird uses completely different keyboard shortcuts.

I am missing something here. I have been using Thunderbird for many years and find it totally accessible and just as easy to use as Outlook Express. What issues are people having with Thunderbird and NVDA?

There really aren't many e-mail clients that fall into that category, free or paid. And heaven knows that Thunderbird is accessible. It's essentially the same people who have written Firefox that have and still are working on Thunderbird.

The Windows 10 email app is not "bog standard" in a variety of ways, starting with its use of the new universal apps interface. It lacks a large number of functions that "power users" (and that includes a lot of people who routinely post here) expect.

Yes I was using the term to mean basic really.
I did initially test it when I had continuous access to win ten, but was a bit fed up with continual new versions of windows. Hopefully they will stop at some point and just let people chuck along with security updates, then I'll get a machine install something usable and have a quiet life. AT the moment since I paid some money for the patch files for the old OE it has worked very well in windows 7. Did work on 10 but it was Microsoft who deliberately uninstalled it when a major update took place. Not a good move in my view.
