Does anyone here experienced lags when using Facebook with Firefox along
with a screen reader (Jaws or NVDA)? I've been using Firefox for a long time

annoying, especially on my Surface 3. On my desktop I'm using Jaws, and on
my Surface 3 I'm using NVDA, latest version.


Re: question regarding seamonkey

Vincent Thacker <vince@...>
 

Marv, Windows 10 might not be a requirement, but from the little experience I've had, Seamonkey works fine under Windows 10. Only one way to be sure; try it. You're quite right in saying Win 10 isn't listed in the documentation, but the browser is supposed to be equivalent to the current Firefox.

Subject: [nvda] question regarding seamonkey

Good evening list; Marv here.  I went to the seamonkey site and windows 10 was not in the operating systems system requirements.  My question is is anyone running seamonkey successfully on windows 10?

 



Re: Firefox lags on FB

 

Also the edit fields where I can type texts are not being read properly, either by Jaws or NVDA. It seems that Facebook has become less accessible nowadays, even though it have over 1 billion users.

Firefox lags on FB

 

Hi all,

Does anyone here experienced lags when using Facebook with Firefox along with a screen reader (Jaws or NVDA)? I've been using Firefox for a long time and I've experienced lags with Facebook from time-to-time and it's really annoying, especially on my Surface 3. On my desktop I'm using Jaws, and on my Surface 3 I'm using NVDA, latest version.

The disk management is not doing what I require
I have a program called PAssist Pro but it does not like NVDA thought it used to work with WE.
Any suggestions?

using calc is difficult using any screen reader.
in our bank, head office has ms excel but branches send files prepared
by open office calc which we are unable to view.
kindly explain how to view the information and make changes

accessibility of LibreOffice, as it is also a free package and much

Re: I am afraid he will have a tummy ache

 

Hi,
Jamie Teh said something on Twitter that basically says that statement. I
may eventually need to talk about social media and NVDA later during that
event... Right now though, I'm in the midst of a semester at a community
college, seeing the news coming from NVDACon speaker recruitment efforts,
finalizing StationPlaylist add-on 7.0 beta, thinking about writing a letter
to mainstream programmers about value of NVDA and others (along with making
sure my latest code for add-ons manager gets integrated into NVDA Core).
Cheers,
Joseph
P.S. Yes, I do code (NVDA screen reader), and latest endeavor can be found
at http://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/3090.

It may be too late, but would there be any way to make a statement to the
effect that NVDA does not agree with comments said on Social Media?
Just a suggestion.

Re: I am afraid he will have a tummy ache

 

Hi Chris and others,
I'm more concerned about our reputation now that we're in the midst of
celebrating NVDA's tenth anniversary (and I'm the chair of a planning
committee for various events, chiefly NVDACon 2016). I hope our reputation
wasn't damaged a lot because of what some people have done (on social
media). As far as the surrounding matter (Dictation Bridge and resulting
debate), I'll briefly mention it on March 14th event.
Cheers,
Joseph

This is truly a great program and I would hate to see it disappear. If

This is Marv here again.  I am using laptop layout just like in jaws.  When I use insert plus downarrow, nvda just reads a little bit; a line or so.  Any other tricks I can try; should I feed him LOL.

Yes, thunderbird is easy to use compared to outlook. It has the old-style menues like outlook express had.

Hi, Marve,

Seamonkey is a suite of programs. It has an email program, a web browser and a chat feature. Seamonkey's email program is very similar to thunderbird.
