Try turning browse mode off when you execute the page down command.

Subject: [nvda] "Infinite Scrolling" in NVDA

Hello all,

I have a strange issue with the usual online supermarket site...

They have recently rebuilt their site to make it mobile-friendly, but
they have enlisted help from our Italian organization for the blind, and
whoever gave advice only tested the site with Jaws 14 and Internet
Explorer 11.

Now, I use NVDA and Firefox, and I'm encountering an issue with
scrolling product lists.

Earlier they had a series of links to go to the next page, but now you
just have to scroll down.
PageDown should work, but it doesn't for me.

That you know of, would there be a NVDA key or key combination to manage
that?

Thanks.

I'm using Firefox 45, with the latest Next of NVDA.

Should I find a solution first, I'll report back.

Ciao,
Ollie

Re: Changing the volume

Chris Mullins
 

Open any application on your machine that may generate sound then use windows+r to open the run dialog, type sndvol and press enter.  You can then set a volume slider control  for each application listed.  Set the nvda volume higher relative to other apps on the computer so you can always hear it.

 

Cheers

Chris

Infinite scolling - possible workaround

Mallard <mallard@...>
 

Hello again,

I was discussing the issue with my son, who had been trying to help a couple of days ago, and he told me that, when I pressed PageDown to continue scrolling the list, NVDA went to the bottom of the page and then up again to the top.

He said a word that made me think: "It looks as if NVDA is "eating up" the key stroke".

That turned a light on in my head. Now, if I press NVDA+f2 before PageGown, passing the key to the application, it seems to work fine.

Thanks for trying to help, Brian.
Ciao,

Brian,
I can put it:

www.esselungaacasa.it

but I'm afraid you won't see the problem if you're not logged in.

Unfortunately, sometimes the only way one has to ask a question is by describinb the issue... (wmile)..

I think I might have solved it, even if it may be a sort of workaround, rather than a real solution.
I'll post my findings in a separate message.

Is the one you have the Sappi 4 one, as that seems to work here OK, even though its a grey area, it might be best to buy the newer version in any case.

Re: nvda and react os

 

Well it would be good if react os would become accessible.
One thing that is a driving force for me is it will run windows programs and therefore games and screen readers probably though thats not the only thing.
With the rise of ms own account system, and later oses such as windows 8x and 10 a lot of things we have taken for granted are on the move or going out.
The desktop app is on the way out, and while I know those of us that have embraced cross platform and touch tablets are round and getting more commenplace there are still those I'd imagine like me that have never changed.
I for example would still be quite happy with an xp like interface, or a win7 like interface for windows and office and everything else without the crazy ribbon system wishfull as it currently is.
And in some way being I came round the time dos was still king I sometimes want to return to the simple times where your os was just a basic crappy box where you shoved apps on.
As it is, I have used the desktop so much the cloud and all the online apps are something I have never been born into and I see no reason bar the obvious why I would want to change now.
In fact I see no reason from a user standpoint for what I do to even upgrade from xp though I do like the newer 7 interface.
As an os a windows 10 core is nice but even so I see no need for the extra features.
At the same time I wouldn't mind staying with a windows like os, as while yes there is linux I have to deal with windows and windows is what I grew up mostly with.
Its why I have a simbian cell now and will for some time.
And its probably why I have windows 7 and others in my immediate family will for the future do also.
Every time I try to get the nerve to upgrade I and my family have found it harder and harder to upgrade an os.
windows 3x to 95 was a no brainer.
as was 95 to 98 and then from 98 to xp.
But that is where it stuck, I saw no need to go vista.
And if xp hadn't gone out of support I wouldn't have left that.
I am happy I went to 7 though.
However yet again another sticking point, I see no need to ever upgrade again.
And with my dad retiring at the end of next month, the drive to have the latest legal office program and latest legal os is greatly diminished.
Now thats not going to mean I won't upgrade, or that I will pirate the next windows and office but its going to get just that bit harder to move on to use something I wouldn't ever need.
Even if its true I would probably be fine with it afterward.
Now if I could buy an os core and use whatever interface I want and whatever feature set and take bits and bobs of both it wouldn't matter a dime but I have to take it or leave it and that really starts to put me in a position especially now my funds will be more reduced.
Its going to become a have to rather than like to.
Or to put it another way, a if it works and I don't loose my data then I won't.
But like all things react os may never get there.

Hi
I keep checking on the react os project. It is up 04.40 now.
So far in accessibility they came up with a built in magnifier and
looks like some kind of access wizard.
I think they need blind computer users to show an interest in it. May
be they will get it accessible.

========================
ReactOS™ Version 0.4.x
Updated January 5, 2016
========================

1. What is ReactOS?
-------------------

ReactOS™ is an Open Source effort to develop a quality operating system
that is
compatible with applications and drivers written for the Microsoft®
Windows™ NT
family of operating systems (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, Seven).

More information is available at: http://www.reactos.org


2. Relationship with the WINE project
-------------------------------------

ReactOS has always intended to work with the WINE project to share as much
programming effort as possible. This mainly concerns User Mode DLLs and
still happens to a degree today. Other areas of cooperation lie in
applications and testing suites.


3. Future compatibility
-----------------------

The ReactOS project, although currently focused on Windows Server 2003
compatibility, is always keeping an eye toward compatibility with
Windows Vista and future Windows NT releases.


4. Supporting other System Applications
---------------------------------------

The Windows NT architecture allows for subsystems, as does the ReactOS
architecture. A subsystem is an implementation of the APIs of another
operating system, allowing ReactOS to run applications from other systems.
We are already looking at subsystems for: Java, OS/2, and DOS and possibly
others in the future.


5. Tutorials
------------

Developer and User Tutorials: http://www.reactos.org/wiki

The tutorials contain more information on the project, compiling and
testing
ReactOS - amongst other topics. Contributors to the project are always
welcome.


6. Author
---------

This document was written by Jason Filby (jasonfilby@yahoo.com).

Thanks!

Hi

Did you save your changes? Use the nvda key +ctrl key + the letter C to
do this. The slider can also be moved with the arrow keys.

Hi,
Hmmm, quite an interesting development.
Until the day ReactOS supports MSAA and UIA...
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi
I keep checking on the react os project. It is up 04.40 now.
So far in accessibility they came up with a built in magnifier and looks like some kind of access wizard.
I think they need blind computer users to show an interest in it.
May be they will get it accessible.
The read me is belo.

========================
ReactOS™ Version 0.4.x
Updated January 5, 2016
========================

1. What is ReactOS?
-------------------

ReactOS™ is an Open Source effort to develop a quality operating system that is compatible with applications and drivers written for the Microsoft® Windows™ NT family of operating systems (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, Seven).

More information is available at: http://www.reactos.org


2. Relationship with the WINE project
-------------------------------------

ReactOS has always intended to work with the WINE project to share as much programming effort as possible. This mainly concerns User Mode DLLs and still happens to a degree today. Other areas of cooperation lie in applications and testing suites.


3. Future compatibility
-----------------------

The ReactOS project, although currently focused on Windows Server 2003 compatibility, is always keeping an eye toward compatibility with Windows Vista and future Windows NT releases.


4. Supporting other System Applications
---------------------------------------

The Windows NT architecture allows for subsystems, as does the ReactOS architecture. A subsystem is an implementation of the APIs of another operating system, allowing ReactOS to run applications from other systems.
We are already looking at subsystems for: Java, OS/2, and DOS and possibly others in the future.


5. Tutorials
------------

Developer and User Tutorials: http://www.reactos.org/wiki

The tutorials contain more information on the project, compiling and testing ReactOS - amongst other topics. Contributors to the project are always welcome.

Re: firefox and google

Hi,
Make sure that you turn the virtual cursor back on or be in brows mode when you read the PDF in the viewer. Are you using the same browser on both machines? IE and Firefox work great for Google Docs, so on the machine that is giving you trouble, try the other browser and see what happens. Take care.

Hello,

When trying to open up a pdf sent to me on google docs it works fine on one machine. On the other after doing the insert space it will only say showing viewer when I arrow down. What setting do I have wrong on that machine.

Thanks.

Thanks for the response and the steps to follow. I will give it a try. I had begun to think this list was only for frequent flyers with 6 comments on the same issue.

Hi:
You could try decreasing the amount of punctuation which is spoken
automatically using the following steps:
1. Press insert-n to open the NVDA menu.
2. Arrow down to Preferences.
3. Press the right arrow to open the submenu.
4. Arrow down to Voice settings and press the Enter key
5. Tab to Punctuation settings and just use the up or down arrow to
change the setting.
6. Press the Enter key to get out of that dialog.

I hope this helps.

I am a very beginning NVDA user with a TripleTalk USB speech synthesizer and

the most recent version of NVDA. NVDA keeps saying “bar” or “L” before each

item in a list as I arrow through the list. Is there a setting to stop
these repetitions of characters that don’t seem to be present?
