Re: firefox what was the fuss exactly?

Well said, Gene, and something that could be applied to other areas of life that would become off topic here.
Do I use Firefox with the navigational sounds extension? Yes.
Would I miss it if it truly became out of date? Yes.
Would I hope it would come back? Yes.
If not, would I see if another one existed? Yes.
Would I cry about it and go boo hoo? No.
Would I quit using Firefox if I couldn't find a replacement, or a working alternative? No.
For me, the navigational sounds are a convenience, not a necessity. After all, I do use Chrome on occasion, and have not found a sounds extention, nor have I really searched that hard as my Chrome usage pales next to my Firefox usage, and I wouldn't die if I didn't find one.

I want to make my position clear and discuss another aspect of the current situation in this rather long message.
 
If people want to use sounds, there is nothing wrong with that but you don't need them and my position is that being so dependent on them that you make that a major determining factor on what browser to use is being too dependent.  That's my position.  I didn't say they are worthless nor that people shouldn't use them.  I'm talking about being too dependent on one aspect of a program when that aspect isn't central to the program and when there may be better programs in general that don't have this specific characteristic.
I'm saying that if someone considers sounds in browsers to be so important that that is a major factor in deciding what browser to use, I consider that to be too dependent.  There are other efficient ways to tell things when using a browser.  If a page hasn't loaded, you can't move around.  Tabbing or down arrowing once or twice will tell you.  I'm not saying, as you said, that they are pointless.  I'm saying that almost anything sounds do, can be either efficiently inferred or checked by other methods and that changing from one browser to another based either only or largely on sounds, is making this one characteristic of a browser too important. 
 
I don't want my position to be misunderstood.  If people want to use sounds, then that's fine;  I'm saying that dependence on them to an excessive degree is not desirable if it leads to decisions on what programs to use in a certain class when trying to decide between program a and b that do roughly the same thing.  Browsers have various advantages and disadvantages and sound is only one aspect of a program. 
Also, the changes being made in firefox, according to a review I've read, make it even faster than Chrome.  It isn't much faster, at least now, and I don't think it matters but if people read the article about these changes posted last week from Marco's Accessibility blog, these changes may result in screen-readers being far more capable to work on complex pages that have embedded programs or where the pages are far more interactive than traditional web pages, and that increasing numbers of web pages are, and will be more complex over time.  Therefore, I find the attitude of blaming Mozilla for what it says it intends to be only a temporary loss of performance for blind users, and writing as though they are going to permanently use a different browser without even seeing the results of the work being done is disturbing.  At the moment, Chrome may be better than Firefoxs in its latest version because of the changes.  But blind people may be better served by what Mozilla is doing after the initial inconvenience. 
 
How often do sighted people complain about things like road construction and repair, but would they never use the road again because of the temporary inconvenience?  They may use a different road during the repairs and the road may even be closed at times, but they return to it when it is in good order again.

Well the beta I tried simply refused to say anything but unknown on any
page, though most of the menus still worked.

I'm not inclined to update since I use the sound, particularly the one when
a page has fully loaded and the one that tells me a link has in fact
activated and of course download complete


I have seen elsewhere where people think these sounds are pointless. I
dispute this as everyone is different and I really only use browsers where I
can actually hear that things are going on. for example I've always noticed
that screenreaders sometimes do not figure out the page has loaded, but
navigational sounds does and hence allows me to re focus the screenreader.
 Also I would not know if a download had completed if the download pane was
hidden without a sound.
 Some links click but clickables do not so sometimes you can figure out what
is which sort of link on a page this way. In a way it would be even better
if button link and clickable had different sounds to save one getting
confused.

I think the list of things some of us want in a browser is obviously going
to be different to what the sighted want, so one will really need somebody
at Mozilla etc to write blind specific add ons for a browser.
 Its far easier when trying to teach somebody how to use a browser to be
able to say, if you do not hear x then its not worked.

Re: create portable copy

Kwork
 


Yes, and this is very important. Some programs, Calibre for instance, in their portable versions, and I think Firefox too, will create a folder on their own. NVDA does not. If you don't create a folder ahead of time for it where you want it to go, you could splatter the NVDA files all over the root of your hard drive, program files, or whatever folder you choose without creating an NVDA subdirectory. I learned that the hard way.

Subject: Re: [nvda] create portable copy

But if you type a path, create a folder first, just for the portable version.  In general, programs put themselves in a folder they create at the end of a path you specify, though you can't assume that.  NVDA doesn't, and the files are placed in the last folder of the path you specify.  So, if the path is c:\misc, that's m I s c,  and you stop there, the files and folders created will be all over the misc folder.  In this case, misc, m I s c,  is the name for my miscellaneous folder.  If you create a folder first in that folder, such as NVDA, and write the path as follows,
c:\misc\nvda
the folders and files will be placed in the NVDA folder.

Hi Vanessa,

1. Press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu
2. Press T for the tools menu
3. Choose the "Create portable copy" item.

Alternatively, if NVDA isn't running, you can run the setup file that you download from the website and press the "Create portable copy" button from the setup screen.

Either way, it will ask for a path, that's when you put in whatever path you want, such as G:\NVDA as you noted

Re: Unveiling Braille Me - World's Most Affordable Smart Braille Display

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

I think you have to look at it like this. When a Perkins brailler costs $800, and a refreshable braille display costs $400, the Braille display becomes instantly attractive in learning environments.

Cursor tracking would be nice, but six dots is all you need to start teaching people how to use the code. We streamlined learning of Braille into technology. We substantially reduce paper waste. We slash both the upfront and long-term cost, and we make Braille relevant to Consumers who would otherwise wonder why they are taking the time to learn it.

For myself, I really need 8 dot Computer Braille, and cursor tracking in my classes. So, this device will not be great for me; however, I think it's great that one of these is actually going to hit the market. I hope when they start recovering some of their R&D costs, they will expand the size, add the cursor tracking feature is, and make it a little bit more relevant to Advanced Braille users.

and our product, BrailleMe - a Smart Braille Display for the
visually impaired community.

I am excited to inform you that we are launching Braille Me,
world's most affordable smart braille display at USD 399/- on the
4th of January celebrating the World Braille Day. Let me give you
an overview of Braille Me.

About Braille Me -

Ever Since Louis Braille invented the wonderful script of Braille,
it has been adopted all across the globe empowering millions of
individuals. Today, after 200 years we are on the verge of a
revolution in Braille. Braille Me, is built to bring digital
braille to everyone immaterial of their geographical, economic or
lingual
background.

It has a six-dot 20-cell braille display, a Perkins-style keypad,
cursor routing buttons and few navigation keys. It has
capabilities to work as a stand-alone editor and also connect to
smartphones and computers via Bluetooth and USB. It is a balanced
device with core features of a complex notetaker while having the
simplicity of a braille
display.

Braille Me has become possible due to two breakthroughs in
Affordability and multi-language. Braille Me is designed with our
patented Braille cell technology which makes the device
cost-effective by an order of magnitude compared to existing
products and supports more than 40 languages spanning all across
the
globe.

To know more about Braille Me please check our demonstration video:

Currently, we are looking for partners who can help us in the
distribution and training in your state/country. Please let us know
if you are part of or are in touch with any Institute for Visually
impaired, commercial distributors of disability aids or NGOs
working in your area.
Your help in identifying key partners would go a long way in
expediting distribution of Braille Me in your locality.

We hope you would join us in this effort to bring digital braille
to every student and professional in need.

Can I shorten pauses following punctuation?

Ann Byrne
 

NVDA's response is crisp and accurate when I move from line to line or application to application. However, when I read a document the pause before the next word is longer than I would like. Is there a place in the settings to shorten the pause?

Thanks,

Ann

Dear Steve

I joined the Access chrome list to report the Accessibility issues with Chrome but I am not getting emails. The email confirming I have joined points me to a web page where I can see postings.  However none are coming through to me as an actual email in Windows Mail. There is also no posting email in the confirmation email.

Is there any way I can make this group like a normal email group? I personally hate   web forums.

hi

If you use chrome. then you want an addon or extension obtained from chrome webstore, called

murcury reader.

and you activate it by pressing alt grave accent, sometimes called single quote. to the left of number 1 on the top number row. this brings up a new window with a close murcury reader at the top and the article nicely formatted without links and ads and video clutter is down below. I am really starting to like chrome more than I like firefox right now. It's really fast and the free murcury reader addon lets me read articles without clutter. murcury reader also has a button that lets you send any web article directly to an amazon kindle if you have one. It's quite nice. now if we get NVDA working good in chrome with google docs sheets and slides that would be good.

Hi,

Yeah eight dots isn't there, which makes it a bit half-baked, but it will be
nice to have a cheaper option.

Wee only six dots, I thought 8 was needed for computer Braille to allow

visually impaired community.

I am excited to inform you that we are launching Braille Me,
world's most affordable smart braille display at USD 399/- on the
4th of January celebrating the World Braille Day. Let me give you
an overview of Braille Me.

About Braille Me -

Ever Since Louis Braille invented the wonderful script of Braille,
it has been adopted all across the globe empowering millions of
individuals. Today, after 200 years we are on the verge of a
revolution in Braille. Braille Me, is built to bring digital
braille to everyone immaterial of their geographical, economic or
lingual
background.

It has a six-dot 20-cell braille display, a Perkins-style keypad,
cursor routing buttons and few navigation keys. It has
capabilities to work as a stand-alone editor and also connect to
smartphones and computers via Bluetooth and USB. It is a balanced
device with core features of a complex notetaker while having the
simplicity of a braille
display.

Braille Me has become possible due to two breakthroughs in
Affordability and multi-language. Braille Me is designed with our
patented Braille cell technology which makes the device
cost-effective by an order of magnitude compared to existing
products and supports more than 40 languages spanning all across
the
globe.

Re: Help with screen review command, please.

Lisa P Geibel
 

Hi all,

How can you activate something when you land on it. This is an issue I'm having and can't figure it out. I unfortunately have to resort to the use of JAWS for this as I can route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor, then hit the left mouse key twice to activate it. Is there a way to do this with NVDA?

Re: QRead and automatic language switching

Mallard <mallard@...>
 

Hello,


I've also used Qread for years, but I don't think you can switch languages automatically, because the language tags that cause that to happen are probably removed when the text is parsed by Qread.


In actual fact, though, I've never really tried, so I can't be absolutely sure of this.


I'll test it and report back.

I have disabled the automatic language detection at the moment. I'll test and report back.

Ciao,
Ollie

Hello all,


Have any of you using QRead also tried reading a document in multiple languages?


I am testing it out with a textbook that automatically switches between English and German when opened in Adobe. However, it defaults to English entirely when opened in QRead.


Is this something inherent to the program and how it presents documents or is there a setting I need to tweak?


Thank you,

Sally

Hi.

Well While brousing firefox ftp today I decided to try firefox 57 as it
was on releases today.

What exactly was the fuss?

Firefox interface loads fast, no lag, but I havn't tried big sites maybe
a couple seconds for audiogames forum.

Addons, noscript, aparently this will not work till actual release of
firefox.

Navigational sounds.

I am trying to find a replacement, the author of this said that because
the new interface doesn't allow for registry access one can't get the
list of events to do things with.

I tried 3 of them so far.

Notification sound, noise and download sound.

Download sound has no options or rather any way I can configure it to suit.

Noise has options but there are no default events set and I tried to add
what I wanted and define its sounds but I can't set values and going to
its website found that while there is a web version all features are
basically not there.

Notification sound is another, but its got no options screen.

Something like noise would be fine if it had an default event list which
just used the windows schemes directly to the files etc.

I only need web navigation start and end, and download complete as a start.

If there was a way I could easily add events, or something that would be
good but I'd like a list for beginners I could import.

Over those though, I did notice and turn on the extra privacy
protection, I have left active the unwanted software protection but I
heard from some that this can cause problems.

I also read the article about accessibility services and how they can be
misused.

It does say if you have a compatible jaws or nvda active on your system
that you should leave this active.

This is interesting, dolphin stuff is not on this list it makes me
wander, while I do use dolphin stuff myself for things their web stuff
is only for ie and ie 6-8 mainly.

Still its an observation only.

I must say off the bat what I really like about firefox are the easy
option layouts, I just wish there was a way to extend them to well have
extras for addons rather than mucking about with the manager.

I do like the fact you can have arrow navigation on.

I did get noscript revived but when I hit a site with scripts on it
never actually notified me at all.

I guess I have to fiddle with it, I do hope thatnoscript does go out and
get released.

Today is the 14th in nz and tomorrow it will be 14th in us and so, I am
probably going to have to keep firefox 57 loaded though I am tempted to
drop back to 56.02 for now and get my sounds back.

Yes!

I have been using Chrome for two years, and I have always had all good things to say about it.

It is so fast, that is what I could not believe when I starting using it.

Downloads go almost twice as fast, and I can open web sites much faster.

Re: NVDA speaking even when it’s not loaded when there’s a problem with shut down

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

I have no issues though normally its going to be explorer windows, master seeker and goldwave or often word Outlook express and wordpad when getting stuff from emails to put into a word doc, sometimes Firefox as well for the same reason.
I also have several windows open when preparing audio content for upload to the website etc as well.
The only issue sometimes is that the creeping windows rot can set in. the first hing you notice is context menus stop reading then the nvda menu will be silent. Save everything then reboot windows. Normally you hear nvda say, some program is not responding lose wait or go back to windows. I normally force close at this point as when everything comes back all is well. Obviously a program has stamped over something vital for accessibility and you stand no chance of figuring out what. Its a long running issue common to dolphin and nvda and has been around since xp days, so I'd suggest its just not on anyone's radar to fix it. Brian

Thats only a problem if you constantly handle more than 2 windows.

Its probably my dos days but I never handle more than 1 window weather it be background or not at any moment.

I get distracted if I have more than 1 screen up at a time including background programs in fact I only have open the things I need unless I have finnished for the day and don't need them.

That includes but is not limited to, music, resilio services, dropbox, firefox, thunderbird and skype.

The only time that works is if 1 window is doing 1 task like downloads.

To be honest when I get a system like this I just do a reformat and
load things myself and test, test, test.

Usually when I load my configs it doesn't do that.

If it does its bios, drivers or both.

The issue is when I have to deal with user software which gets in
the way.

I can do it that way but it takes longer, and costs the client and
myself more time.

I'd prefur to just reformat and reinstall windows and then I have
an easier time.

Ofcause after that loading each bit of software at a time will
eventually yeald the error.

9 times out of 10 at that stage its new or updated software.

And if it gets to that state I use google.

Sometimes a user needs a function and then just cracks software
that needs it or installs malware full software to get it working.

At that point I just ask them for the function and then I can
google that.

There is enough free opensource or low cost software that I either
find the entire package or the modules I need and if I am lucky a
wrapper front end to put them together.

The issue is then to convince the user to use said software.

I would to be honest ask the tech what stuff is on there.

ANd just get it reformatted and ask to get its hardware tested the
unit cleaned, sure its going to cost a bit but you have already got it
in the shop and are generating costs so get it done.

I have just had a system revived that stopped working the entire os
crashed, the system died.

Regreasing the syncs, clearing the dust and replacing the power
supply and all small fans and its up.

Re: firefox what was the fuss exactly?

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

You will need to remove and reload them as with other add ons. I did but as I said despite not changing anything windows 7 seemed to just stop me from accessing anything on the web page at all.


Has anyone else tried this? If there is a portable version of 57 that would be good after all if its banning registry entry, it could in effect use a compact registry of its own in portable mode.

Today is the 14th in nz and tomorrow it will be 14th in us and so, I am probably going to have to keep firefox 57 loaded though I am tempted to drop back to 56.02 for now and get my sounds back.

Is this going to be another one like the last el cheapo one that everyone is still waiting to get?

Wee only six dots, I thought 8 was needed for computer Braille to allow info like cursor position etc.

Hi Josh,
I had been contacted by Shyam from Innovision a couple months ago with
regards to how adding support for a new Braille display driver works in
the case of NVDA. I had redirected Shyam to Jamie or Reef by providing
their e-mail addresses at that point in time. I am unaware of whether
or not he actually followed up with an NV Access staff member, but what
I can safely say is that supporting NVDA was very much on their minds
while developing this affordable Braille display.
Thanks.

computers via Bluetooth and USB. It is a balanced device with core
features of a complex notetaker while having the simplicity of a braille

Re: firefox what was the fuss exactly?

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Well the beta I tried simply refused to say anything but unknown on any page, though most of the menus still worked.

I'm not inclined to update since I use the sound, particularly the one when a page has fully loaded and the one that tells me a link has in fact activated and of course download complete


I have seen elsewhere where people think these sounds are pointless. I dispute this as everyone is different and I really only use browsers where I can actually hear that things are going on. for example I've always noticed that screenreaders sometimes do not figure out the page has loaded, but navigational sounds does and hence allows me to re focus the screenreader.
Also I would not know if a download had completed if the download pane was hidden without a sound.
Some links click but clickables do not so sometimes you can figure out what is which sort of link on a page this way. In a way it would be even better if button link and clickable had different sounds to save one getting confused.

I think the list of things some of us want in a browser is obviously going to be different to what the sighted want, so one will really need somebody at Mozilla etc to write blind specific add ons for a browser.
Its far easier when trying to teach somebody how to use a browser to be able to say, if you do not hear x then its not worked.

Subject: [nvda] firefox what was the fuss exactly?


Hi.

Well While brousing firefox ftp today I decided to try firefox 57 as it was on releases today.

What exactly was the fuss?

Firefox interface loads fast, no lag, but I havn't tried big sites maybe a couple seconds for audiogames forum.

Addons, noscript, aparently this will not work till actual release of firefox.

Navigational sounds.

I am trying to find a replacement, the author of this said that because the new interface doesn't allow for registry access one can't get the list of events to do things with.

I tried 3 of them so far.

Notification sound, noise and download sound.

Download sound has no options or rather any way I can configure it to suit.

Noise has options but there are no default events set and I tried to add what I wanted and define its sounds but I can't set values and going to its website found that while there is a web version all features are basically not there.

Notification sound is another, but its got no options screen.

Something like noise would be fine if it had an default event list which just used the windows schemes directly to the files etc.

I only need web navigation start and end, and download complete as a start.

If there was a way I could easily add events, or something that would be good but I'd like a list for beginners I could import.

Over those though, I did notice and turn on the extra privacy protection, I have left active the unwanted software protection but I heard from some that this can cause problems.

I also read the article about accessibility services and how they can be misused.

It does say if you have a compatible jaws or nvda active on your system that you should leave this active.

This is interesting, dolphin stuff is not on this list it makes me wander, while I do use dolphin stuff myself for things their web stuff is only for ie and ie 6-8 mainly.

Still its an observation only.

I must say off the bat what I really like about firefox are the easy option layouts, I just wish there was a way to extend them to well have extras for addons rather than mucking about with the manager.

I do like the fact you can have arrow navigation on.

I did get noscript revived but when I hit a site with scripts on it never actually notified me at all.

I guess I have to fiddle with it, I do hope thatnoscript does go out and get released.

Today is the 14th in nz and tomorrow it will be 14th in us and so, I am probably going to have to keep firefox 57 loaded though I am tempted to drop back to 56.02 for now and get my sounds back.

I agree with Gene. Heck I've not used any sound nav add-ons for oh I'd say almost a year and its fine and yep I use FF and Edge with NVDA. The only sounds I care about are the Action Center notification and mail in Thunderbird.

Why do some people care so much about browser sounds? When a page has finished opening, you'll know it because the screen-reader automatically starts to read it. When a page doesn't load for some reason, a lot of the time there is an error message. When you download a file, you can easily check the estimated time remaining for the download. I understand the desire to hear a sound when a download finishes because that will tell you, without you having to check or without perhaps getting busy with something else and forgetting to check in a timely manner. But how much of the concern with sounds is just habit? Maybe people would be surprised if they didn't use browser sounds for three days as a trial, how quickly almost all of the sounds fade into insignificance. Even the download finished sound may decrease significantly in importance.

Hi.

Ok, got an addon called download sound this works for downloads, sadly I
don't get when sites open like navigation sounds, but if anything else
the download sound is the important event sound is a bit loud though.
