Re: nvda 2017.4RC1 and google chrome 62 latest google translate

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Josh,

I just had a bit of a look at the issue.  Once I install NVDA 2017.4rc1, I get the issue you mention.  I then tried a few older builds (as temporary versions) and couldn't replicate.  I then tried rc1 again and this time it works fine.  I suspect, it might be something that just behaves a bit oddly the first time the build is run.  Could you restart NVDA and confirm whether the issue is still present please?

Kind regards

Quentin.

hi

I tried google translate with jaws2018 in google chrome. list boxes work fine and forms mode stays on. NVDA issue is with google translate when trying to choose a language, when you arrow or attempt arrowing through the pop up list box, NVDA forces you back into browse mode no matter what you do. I hope this little issue can be fixed for the final 2017.4 release. this is an nvda issue, because jaws and chromevox work fine with those list boxes on the google translate website.

Re: Soulseek QT?

 

I think some folks have been able to get qt apps to work to a extent

using some accessible dlls and other stuff that people can get from the tap in radio folder?

I seemed this mentioned some where else and I used to have the zip file that some one zipped up a while back.  I have sense lost it but it did help in qt apps a bit like I said it made them work a bit better to a extent

Hm, so wait, you got Soulseek QT to work on Windows 7? Not the NS client,
right? The nS is the older client; I am using it now on Windows 10 but it
has some problems, and hasn't been developed since probably the early days
of XP. Still, at least it runs and is reasonably accessible, I guess. I
would however like to use the current client if possible, because half the
time people can't seem to download from me even though I have a nice
connection, and the programme likes to disappear on me. Like, it will stay
in the task manager as a process but the window is nowhere ... it's not in
the taskbar or anything.

Hey everyone.

I don't have much hope, but I wondered if anyone had success using this
programme with NVDA? I did install it when I used JAWS exclusively and could
not do a thing with it beyond the setup screen, which was accessible. It
uses some library that writes directly to the screen, I think, and JAWS at
least couldn't see a word beyond that point. But I feel like people who use
NVDA are perhaps more willing to experiment and try things out, and I
wondered if anyone here had managed to successfully use this?

Right now, I do run Soulseek NS occasionally. It works ... ok, but doesn't
always play nice with Windows 10, sometimes disappearing from the available
windows altogether (even though it is still listed in task manager as a
running process) and sometimes failing to start altogether, and I'm also not
really convinced it is indexing my files properly. Soulseek NS hasn't been
developed for probably ten years, so it'd be nice to get on board with QT,
though I guess it's pretty cool that NS still works at all.

I did find one or two forum posts about QT with screen-readers and it didn't
really seem like there was a lot of interest in making it accessible. But
those posts were from years ago, too, and sometimes I miss things with

Re: need a virtual ribben addon for NVDA

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi Gene


I was just reading the emails on this topic. If you allow me i can paste your tutorial up on Accessibilitycentral.net so others in the community can access it at any time to learn how to use them. it can go on a separate page and have the headings called split buttons and how to use ribbons with nvda. it will probably be along the same lines unless you want to give those sections a title each. the page it will most probably come off is nvda tutorials for other programs page just under the Microsoft word tutorial.


I was thinking along the lines of maybe doing a audio tutorial on using them which i can add to that page for other programs page. It would be a day or so before it goes up there.


That would be your written one.


I think i might have some thing written on the windows 10 page but am thinking of removing it any how.


I will put the tutorial is written by ..... unless you want it left off.

I also can find a link to an article that explains why virtual ribbons are actually inferior to real ribbons.
 
I wanty to make one point clearly.  It may be that there are people with conceptual disabilities who would have a hard time learning ribbons.  Most people shouldn't have particular difficulty and it should be assumed that people can learn them until experience shows that they have an unreasonable amount of difficulty.  If people were taught ribbons correctly, the ongoing resistance to them would be significantly reduced.

Re: Soulseek QT?

 

I agree, mbam is something I install in demo mode on a system with suspected infections and that needs clearing, but it doesn't stay on the systems in question long term.

I run it and use it if the user reports a problem or if something stupid has gone on, but then its gone.

It does what I need it to do and it is usable to the point where it does what it does, but I wouldn't use it to tie my own shoe laces with.

At first I was confused and not sure why you were referring to malwarebytes, but after reading the whole message, I think I get it. These programmes use the same library and bypass the operating system for screen drawing? I don't fully understand the issues involved but I guess I have a vague notion. I do find malwarebytes good enough to use but yes, I agree it's not an awesome experience ... but then it's the sort of programme you just run and then leave, not something you have up and always want to fiddle with. I need more feedback than that from Soulseek. I already have issues with NS, but I guess what you're saying is that I too will just have to settle for "good enough for now, I guess"?

qt has some accessibility doings.

Sadly it doesn't seem everyone impliments these right.

Malwarebytes really does try, but its not what I'd call a tidy program.

I mean it works to the point I can hit buttons and review bits of info but I can't check or uncheck, and reading is well its just rough as a bed of nails is all.

The only program that uses qt in my opinion that even works nicely is teamtalk.

And thats only probably because its dev just transfered the classic interface as an option without it it does work ok to.

He does use tolque which in itself is an accessibility library which controls readers and tells them what they should be saying.

Sadly not to many things use something like this outside maybe blind games.

Re: Creating a profile for a program

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Ann,

To create a profile with no speech while you are in a particular program:

1. Ensure the program you want to create the profile for is running.
2. Press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu
3. Press C to select "Configuration profiles"
4. Press alt+n to create a new profile
5. Type TT or whatever you like as the name of the profile.
6. Press tab once to "Use this profile for".
7. Press right arrow to move to "Current application TT" (or similar).
8. Press ENTER to create the profile.
9. Press NVDA+control+s to open the synthesizer dialog.
10. Press end to select "no speech".
11. Press ENTER to select that synthesizer.

Now, whenever this program is active, NVDA won't speak.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Pivot tables in Excel

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Rayn,

The pivot table itself should be navigatable like other cells in Excel.  Setting up the data for the pivot table uses a task pane which you can access via F6.  You can then tab and arrow through the options to setup the data as needed.  Microsoft have a basic tutorial on it here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-a-PivotTable-to-analyze-worksheet-data-A9A84538-BFE9-40A9-A8E9-F99134456576  Note where it talks about dragging and dropping fields, you can achieve the same by pressing the down arrow and selecting where you want to move something.

Slicers are a way of filtering data.  Unfortunately these are currently not accessible.  We do have an open issue on this: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6605 

You can still use the conventional filtering tool to filter data by moving to a column heading which has filtering enabled, press alt+down arrow, and select the options you want.

Kind regards

Quentin.

The sheet was created specifically for me and a great deal of time and effort was put into it. I would really like to be able to use it. I know visually where the pivot tables  and slicers are since the creator who is sighted sat with me as we tried to figure out how I could read it. The cursor was placed on the first table and the arrow keys were used to see if I was able to hear anything, this was unsuccessful . I was able to navigate to the actual table on the page starting at cell a6 and read both vertically and horizontally as usual however. I am using Excel 2010 and the latest version of NVDA. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Sarah

Re: Soulseek QT?

Hey.
That's very interesting. You'd think then it would also work in windows 10.
Did you ever try running Soulseek QT in compatibility mode?

Hm, so wait, you got Soulseek QT to work on Windows 7? Not the NS client,
right? The nS is the older client; I am using it now on Windows 10 but it
has some problems, and hasn't been developed since probably the early days
of XP. Still, at least it runs and is reasonably accessible, I guess. I
would however like to use the current client if possible, because half the
time people can't seem to download from me even though I have a nice
connection, and the programme likes to disappear on me. Like, it will stay
in the task manager as a process but the window is nowhere ... it's not in
the taskbar or anything.

Did not work for me with jaws and W10. I was using it with W7 and work well.

I also attempted to make it work with NVDA current, jaws 2018 and no go. I
like the program but now is hard to use.

Subject: [nvda] Soulseek QT?

Hey everyone.

I don't have much hope, but I wondered if anyone had success using this
programme with NVDA? I did install it when I used JAWS exclusively and could
not do a thing with it beyond the setup screen, which was accessible. It
uses some library that writes directly to the screen, I think, and JAWS at
least couldn't see a word beyond that point. But I feel like people who use
NVDA are perhaps more willing to experiment and try things out, and I
wondered if anyone here had managed to successfully use this?

Right now, I do run Soulseek NS occasionally. It works ... ok, but doesn't
always play nice with Windows 10, sometimes disappearing from the available
windows altogether (even though it is still listed in task manager as a
running process) and sometimes failing to start altogether, and I'm also not
really convinced it is indexing my files properly. Soulseek NS hasn't been
developed for probably ten years, so it'd be nice to get on board with QT,
though I guess it's pretty cool that NS still works at all.

I did find one or two forum posts about QT with screen-readers and it didn't
really seem like there was a lot of interest in making it accessible. But
those posts were from years ago, too, and sometimes I miss things with
google searches. Just thought it was worth a shot!

Cheers.


My Firefox 57 issue

Sharni-Lee Ward
 

I know people have mentioned having issues with Firefox 57. I turned off
automatic updates but although I tried to activate the Not Now option
yesterday, it still did the thing. The new Firefox is slower, but not so
much so that I can't manage. However, it has frozen twice on different
sites, slowing down the whole computer/NVDA's response time, and when I
finally get to the Windows Task Manager, there are four instances of
Firefox.exe. Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: FW: [nvda-addons] Add-on updates: GoldWave 17.11, SystrayList 2.1 #addonrelease

 

Hello Joseph,

Are there translation updates for SystrayList? Our bulgarian translation was complete a long time ago (maybe a little after v2.0 was released), but even with v2.1 it is not included and some strings remain untranslated. Actually, now I've checked and it seams that the complete bulgarian translation is included, but still some strings (e.g. the label of the list of taskbar buttons) remain in english. Can you please check out what is going on?

Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev

First of a series of add-on release announcements for the next two weeks. This week is for add-ons that hasn’t been updated in a while, and next week will be newer ones.

Cheers,

Joseph

That is a different Gene.  I don't know if he put the tutorial I did on his site.  I don't restrict use of it in any way so it may be there.  Also, I send it in e-mail messages and I never thought of giving it a title.  I just paste it into the message and send it where people want it.  So if people have placed it on web sites, I don't know what they may call it. 
 
I'll send it in a following message.

Hi Jean,
Wasn’t that tutorial on your Accessibility central website? I actually went looking for yesterday, maybe I wasn’t in the right section, but I didn’t find it.

I doubt there is such an add on.  I haven't heard of one and a google search doesn't show one.  I don't know who you need it for or what teaching resources are available to the person in question but I would strongly recommend learning real ribbons.  Despite all the gnashing of teeth you hear, ribbons are not difficult.  they are just a different way of organizing an interface and everything is accessible.  I wrote a tutorial on ribbons that teaches their use with Wordpad since everyone has Wordpad.  I'll send it if you are interested. 
 
I also can find a link to an article that explains why virtual ribbons are actually inferior to real ribbons.
 
I wanty to make one point clearly.  It may be that there are people with conceptual disabilities who would have a hard time learning ribbons.  Most people shouldn't have particular difficulty and it should be assumed that people can learn them until experience shows that they have an unreasonable amount of difficulty.  If people were taught ribbons correctly, the ongoing resistance to them would be significantly reduced.
