although the time has passed to mensione it in our final checkups 1
thing you need to do after installing a major update is do a manual
check for update although windows should do this automatically but you
never know you may miss a driver update.

Re: Question about Google Chrome and annoying alerts

Blee Blat <bleeblat@...>
 

Is this related to that bug that still means that some edit fields don't read in Chrome? Or is that a different bug? And by not reading I mean that I can type text but cannot review the text with cursor keys to select or edit it on some form fields in Chrome, even though the same fields work in Firefox.

Re: Question about Google Chrome and annoying alerts

Gene
 

It may be mostly for the reason you say, but when I go to some web sites using Chrome, I get a message that says alert and often nothing more.  This particularly happens on Youttube where the messages seem to alert me that an add is playing that can be skipped, but because they are not read often, only the word "alert" is spoken, I'm inferring what the message may say from the very few times I've heard it read.

The reason that you are getting the chrome Developer Alert Tools in either in Chrome or Firefox is that you have the Developer Mode turned on.

Go in firefox to Tools then cursor down to Web Developer and then make sure that everything is unchecked in the sub menu which appears after that.

You might have to repeat the uncheck for every item you have in the web developer sub menu.

If you are using Chrome then this presumably  will also be in the Chrome menus somewhere.

 

However once these web developer options are all unchecked the inaccessible and annoying web development alerts should go away.

Yeah it should. We worked hard to test that and we did report issues. Not all of them are fixed but I'm sure if you leave feedback those of us in the insider program will see it, or maybe hq will.

Re: Win Fall Creator update

But the next question is, what doesn't?  We'll see and it will be interesting to find out if people have problems and what they are.  From what I've read in the general press, some features are useful and improved.  But much appears to be of interest only to visual users.

where does NVDA support OS system API MSAA

Derek Lane
 

I ask this question because I'm wondering what it would take for NVDA to work with the zoom meeting platform, and receive notifications from it, as other screen readers do.

The information I was able to get from zoom is the following, and will hopefully be of help for anyone who could take advantage of this info...


"Zoom client in Windows uses OS system API MSAA to support screen reader. The SPEC is described here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd317990(v=vs.85).aspx
In particular details, Zoom client calls the MSAA API https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd373603(v=vs.85).aspx to notify system to inform the screen reader to speak."
Thanks!

Is there any reason this would need to be a NVDA add-on rather than a separate program?  My chess game is not strong, so I'm not familiar with what other programs there might be out there to do this, but I would expect there should be a few available.  While they might not all be accessible, that's the route I would investigate first.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: Question about Google Chrome and annoying alerts

I don't know where the message appears but in Chrome and Firefox, you don't have to get rid of messages, whether you can or not.  They appear somewhere in the Window and don't interfere with the page being displayed.  A new message, if one appears later, will replace the earlier one.
