Yes Skype has a history if you look back over the years, every time they fix one thing they screw up several others. this was even before Microsoft got their hands on it.

Hi.

Well I just decided to update skype for windows desktops.

It sadly appears that skype the new skype sadly is not even closed to accessible.

Buttons for contacts and messages appear ok but over that there is a lot of clickable, clickable, clickables.

The settings tab was completely inaccessible though I was able to set it up just fine.

I really hope ms is going to keep skype classic, you can get round this right now by typing skype setup full in google and it will find you the old one but how long this will stay out is anyone's guess.

I can't even get the right click menu in system tray to work.

If anything else all I really want is ms to keep skype classic available for those that want it, they don't need to do anything to it, I'd prefur a simple classic skype for us blind people but failing that if skype stays as it is well.

I just can't loose skype all my business and other stuff goes through it.

Its not an option, but if skype becomes crap, I may have to use an old version or even just no longer use skype because its crap now!

No, I can't even do that, the new interface I just can't get round it, I have been happily able to reinstall skype classic and update it with the latest classic version.

You need to look for the classic version now.

This is not on.

And it appears the new app won't run on the latest win10 which itself is fine but to be honest the classic skype is really accessible.

I had a Boot Camp Windows 7 installation on my Mac. It's actually still there. But I had some issues. Anyway, I didn't want to do fusion, because I had heard a lot about audio problems and keyboard mapping problems. I really thought if I hung on long enough, the issues I had would be solved. Are used a Mac since snow leopard. Now, I'm about done. So I will be checking into signature addition machines, even though they seem ungodly expensive and a bit more than I need in terms of horse power extra graphics etc. at least there are decent free alternative screen readers now, something that wasn't true in the past. Having been on the wrong screen reader horse numerous times, from window vision to window bridge to window eyes, I absolutely refuse to keep going down the rabbit hole of the page screenwriter but never keeps up anyway.
If anybody has any PC advice, please write me off list, since I know this is wildly off-topic.

Hi,
For resident translators: please pass this onto your language communities.
Dear NVDA community:
I’m Joseph Lee, a code contributor to NVDA screen reader and one of
its translators. I’d like to take a moment to talk about a situation
that’ll require huge coordination between many members of this
community: current state of NVDA translations.
One of the reasons why NVDA is so successful is because of work of
committed translators. Without their help, NVDA would not have been
translated into 52 languages (including our newest family member,
Macedonian). Some of us met NVDA because there was somebody (or a
group of people) who kept thinking about bringing NVDA to our
languages, and some of us became prominent members of the NVDA
community through our translation work. For people like me, we forged
bonds with NVDA through translations, uniting together to bring equal
access to technology despite speaking different tongues and dialects.
But just as we’ve made progress in tearing down the linguistic wall,
lately we translators found ourselves asking, “what can we do better”.
With departure of two long-time translation leaders (one in 2014, the
other this year), it became clear that we needed to think about where
we are now, what problems we’re facing, and what we can do to continue
our march toward equal access to technology across languages.
Specifically, after some translators experienced issues with the
translation workflow for a couple of weeks and after going through
commit logs for various languages, we realized that we began to
neglect the very people we are supposed to serve: users and the entire
NVDA community, and we needed to seek help from the community in
helping us get back on track.
The issues we the translators encountered include the following:

* Commitment: we’ve received letters from some people, telling
us that they’re willing to translate NVDA into their languages. Some
of them did show commitment, while we never heard from some again or
haven’t seen what they’re doing. In case of one language, this person
thought a person with limited computer skill can translate a screen
reader, but the process overwhelmed this person.
* Lack of updates: several languages (such as Catalonian,
Nepali, Afrikaans and what not) weren’t updated in years (in case of
Nepali, the translator passed away a few years ago). The translations
community tried to contact maintainers of these languages to no avail,
even so far as creating a wiki page that lists update status for each language.
Thus, on behalf of the translations group, I’d like to request help
from the entire NVDA community in resolving translation problems so we
can get back on track. Specifically, I would like to call for help for
the following:

* Updating neglected languages: the neglected languages are
Afrikaans, Amharic, Catalonian, Icelandic, Nepali, Punjabi and others.
Please help update these languages.
* New languages: if you do have the necessary skill to translate
NVDA’s user interface and documentation into another language, please
do help us spread equal access to technology to more parts of the
world through new localizations.
* Spread the word about translations: just as new and updated
languages are important, talking about translations is also important.
Please do spread the word about NVDA translations around the world.
A personal plea to translators or would-be translators: I want you to
take a moment to think about the following: we should not translate
NVDA and related materials for fun alone; if we translate NVDA just
because it is fund to do so and we think it is an easy process, then
our work is nothing. However, if we think our translation benefits not
only us but also the entire NVDA community (current and would-be
members), and if we’re willing to put our commitment and effort into
it, then our work would be better than finest gold out there. I
personally hope that, by NVDA 2018.3, the NVDA translation work will
thrive to a point where people will volunteer to add new translations
and/or update translations instead of us looking for maintainers of
neglected translations. We need to get back on track and cannot let
our translation work stay in vain anymore, and this time, we do need
to work with the entire NVDA community to improve our situation.
To the entire NVDA community: NVDA translations is what makes NVDA go
global, and this work is just as important as promoting NVDA around
the world. Many people around the world can’t speak English, French,
Chinese, Spanish and other world languages, and for many, they’re
looking for a highway that’ll let them experience the world outside;
that highway, for blind people, is computers, and for many of them, a
screen reader that SPEAKS their own language. Please help translators
get back on track, because without YOUR help, we can do nothing. By
the time NVDA 2018.3 is released, I hope to hear a “thank you” note
from translators, which is way different from the statements from
above. In other words, the fate of NVDA translations depends not only
on translators, but also on you all.
Thank you.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: Goldwave and NVDA interference

What is occurring should not be caused by processor load because if it
was then we could just wait out the delay and hear the subfolders and
files inside the file browser of choice... The problem with the theory
that it's due to processor load is that no matter how long you wait
those subfolders and files are never read while a batch conversion is
running. However if you're not inside a folder then it reads
everything just fine; the issue only occurs when you try to look
inside a folder.

file. BTW, narrator is even worse with mostly no speech anywhere, even
when using windows-D to get to the desktop. I haven't yet tried with JFW.

maximize you get to read the one subfolder or file but that's it. If
you continue to arrow up or down nothing is read.

Hi,

Confirmed (especially when performing a lengthy process such as
applying
effects to a long file). This would be because GoldWave takes over the
CPU
(that is, the program will use a lot of CPU time), making NVDA’s
responsiveness slower than usual.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

Has anyone else experienced this? When doing a batch conversion with
GoldWave, NVDA struggles or outright fails to read several Windows
utilities such as Windows Explorer, Control Panel etc. An acquaintance

of
mine is experiencing the exact same issue.

As for me, I’m running on Windows 7 64-bit, NVDA 2017.2, GoldWave 6.31
and, not that I think this will make any difference, GoldWave NVDA
addon
17.05.

The strangest thing, and perhaps the biggest problem with this, is
that
it
only stopped working recently, in both cases. Mine a few months ago,
and
the other guy’s a few weeks ago. The problem is that neither of us can
determine a pattern, I.E. a common denomenator that could or should
explain
the change.

I have tried disabling the addon (in case it was an addon update),
I’ve
also tried with the latest NVDA – 2017.3 (in case it is a known issue
and
has been fixed) but with no improvements.

Cheers.
Damien.

Re: NVDA and the system tray

Hi Group,


NVDA has a nice add on that works like the JAWS insert f11 keystroke to read the system tray items.  It is standard on the main add on page.

Or if you don't have a context key, some desktop keyboards and many laptop keyboards don't for example, it's shift-f10. Note also on some laptop keyboards at least, you might need to use the fn key as well.

How do you perform a right click on something shown in the system tray?
Using NVDA 2017-3 on a Win 10 fall creator laptop.
Thanks
