If you are refering to the output device in nvda

If you change this you must remember to save configuration settings prior to restarting nvda

Otherwise it will go back to the previous settings

I don't know.  Just saying you can't download something without giving a description of what happens, does a page come up, is there some sort of error message, doesn't provide any useful information.  I'll test the link and if it doesn't work properly, I'll send another.

Hi Kavein,

 

Firstly thank you for your interest in helping out!

 

NVDA uses Braille tables from Liblouis: http://liblouis.org/

 

Information on creating new tables is available from: http://liblouis.org/documentation/liblouis.html

 

While NVDA isn't always on the latest build of Liblous, we are endeavouring to keep it more up to date than it has been previously.

 

Knowing we have users with an interest in a particular language, as and when you get Malay added and in a new LibLouis version, let me know (either on here or write to info@...) and I'll make a special effort to get us on the same version as soon as possible for you.

 

Kind regards


Quentin.

Re: blackboard

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

I am just starting school at a college that uses Blackboard. So far, I haven't run into any issues with nvda logging in or accessing content. I do remember the issues with entering texting form fields  and submitting assignments from a couple of years ago when I helped my ex-girlfriend with her classes. I don't know whether those issues are still a thing, but I will run into them eventually and let the list know.

The key accessibility issue in Blackboard for me is that they don't do anything to validate the content uploaded by professors. The framework may be peachy keen, but it allows professors to upload garbage such as images of text and screenshots of Code. Without good training, the whole thing Falls over.

Another issue completely unrelated to nvda, is the fact that Blackboard has a history of being not mobile friendly at all. The Blackboard Mobile apps have their own niggling accessibility issues, but also the functionality of the mobile apps with severely reduced.

I've used D2L for my High School courses. And I don't know that it's better than Blackboard. It isn't terrible either, but I really think these content management Creator is have a lot to answer for yet.

I must admit, on Windows 10, I also use the built in Defender from Microsoft.  This question does come up regularly though, so here are my notes from the last round of conversations on this earlier this year:

 

There are several anti-virus programs which are accessible with NVDA and some which are partly accessible:

 

Windows Defender comes with Windows 10 from Microsoft and is accessible.

 

One user, David Goldfield, has written a comprehensive review of Kaspersky Anti-Virushttps://davidgoldfield.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/kaspersky-antivirus-a-review-for-screen-reader-users/

 

Another user, Gene, has put together a whole site of information and suggestions, including for anti-virushttp://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda_road_tested_programs.html

 

Sonos is another anti-virus which has been recommended by some of our users: https://www.sophos.com/lp/sophos-home.aspx

 

If anyone checks those and finds the information out of date, or has others to add, please do chime in!

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.
