Hello all,

    When I download this all I get is a zip file. When I extract it I am not able to find the add on file. Next I tried changing the file extension from .zip to .nvda-addon. When I hit enter on it to install I get an error saying it is missing a file or is in the wrong format. How can I get this add on installed?

 

Thanks,

Greg Wocher

Hello Gene,

I like the bookmark idea and will probably go with that.

To answer some of your questions:

It seems to be a series of buttons, I think 3 in total. I have only ever heard the last two which say something along the lines of "open login page" and "close this message," respectively.

Using brows mode to navigate by buttons doesn't work as these buttons seem to not be in the main document. It was one of the first strategies I tried.

For now, I think the bookmark option is the simplest solution.

Thank you!

I doubt it.  When a dialog opens on a web page, NVDA says the word "dialog."  Have you gotten to the alert message or heard its entire text?  On the new page you open, what is this option; is it a link?  Instead of tabbing until you get to it on the new page, use the screen-reader search function and search from the top of the page for the word "open."  See if you can find whatever it is on the page.  If you can't find it, I may find something in firefox that makes finding the alert easier.

I am using the extended service release of Firefox on windows 10 machine with the stable release of NVDA. Sometimes Firefox will put up notices, such as when it offers to remember passwords or when it informs you that has blocked a redirection from the site. How can I access these in order to either tell it I don’t want it to save a password or that I do wanted to allow a redirection?

Hi Marisane

Evening guys

I am Marisane from SA.

I recently posted to you about nvda 2017.3 unresponsiveness, but none of you came to my rescue.

Nvda goes unresponsive everytime I run more than one applications.

It also goes unresponsive when I am working on he internet.

I use nvda 2017.3 and win10.

My win10 is : Windows 10Ver1703 (64-bit) build 15063.726.

On other occasions, I use jaws16 but it does not go unresponsive when I run multiple applications or am working on the internet.

What is wrong with nvda? Why so unresponsive in win10?

May I also understand about win10 fall creators? What is that?

Sorry for being without this knowledge about win10.

I am, of course, not technical.

Please help.

Kind regards
Marisane

I doubt it.  When a dialog opens on a web page, NVDA says the word "dialog."  Have you gotten to the alert message or heard its entire text?  On the new page you open, what is this option; is it a link?  Instead of tabbing until you get to it on the new page, use the screen-reader search function and search from the top of the page for the word "open."  See if you can find whatever it is on the page.  If you can't find it, I may find something in firefox that makes finding the alert easier.

I am using the extended service release of Firefox on windows 10 machine with the stable release of NVDA. Sometimes Firefox will put up notices, such as when it offers to remember passwords or when it informs you that has blocked a redirection from the site. How can I access these in order to either tell it I don’t want it to save a password or that I do wanted to allow a redirection?

Hi Marisane
I saw a response to your post which asked you to check if any power saving options were in operation on your machine which can throttle back the processor. I think they said something about "always on " being a good option. Did you do this or did you miss the post?

Cheers
Chris

Evening guys

I am Marisane from SA.

I recently posted to you about nvda 2017.3 unresponsiveness, but none of you came to my rescue.

Nvda goes unresponsive everytime I run more than one applications.

It also goes unresponsive when I am working on he internet.

I use nvda 2017.3 and win10.

My win10 is : Windows 10Ver1703 (64-bit) build 15063.726.

On other occasions, I use jaws16 but it does not go unresponsive when I run multiple applications or am working on the internet.

What is wrong with nvda? Why so unresponsive in win10?

May I also understand about win10 fall creators? What is that?

Sorry for being without this knowledge about win10.

I am, of course, not technical.

Please help.

Kind regards
Marisane

if you change into the presentation Mode with F5, NVDA reads the whole

Re: How to access Firefox notifications with NVDA

Gene
 

After seeing the message about moving headers in Thunderbird, I installed the add on out of curiosity. 
 
It appears there are some fields you can move and some you can't;  If you want to subject line after the from line, move the subject line, which you can move and not the from line, which you can't.  The addon reports that you have moved the from line but it hasn't moved.  You'll have to experiment to see which fields you can actually move and which you can't.

Re: How to access Firefox notifications with NVDA

Hi Group,


I have finally gotten this add-on downloaded and installed. It is quite good.  However, I can't seem to get the columns rearranged at all.  I press the keystroke insert + H to open this feature, I see a list of columns and then I highlight one and tab to the up button to move it.  I am told that the column has been moved.  Then I tab to the close button.  I see no other button except for the down button. Is this supposed to work this way?  If not, am I missing a step?


Thanks for any help.

There must be a better way to do this.....

Alt t then o to open options.
After waiting a moment, tab once. You are now in a list

Start down arrowing until you get to security.
If down arrowing stops moving you before you get there,
up arrow once then continue down arrowing.
Once you get to security, start tabbing until you get to
a checkbox that says something like remember logins.
Uncheck it with the space bar. You won't be asked any

There is no ok button in this dialog-like structure.
Settings take immediate effect. This is a web page in
the browser and since you are on a web page that mimics
a dialog, do whatever you want to do that you would do
while on a web page after you change the setting. That
is, go to another page by using a book mark, close the
browser, etc.

*Subject:* [nvda] How to access Firefox notifications
with NVDA

I am using the extended service release of Firefox on
windows 10 machine with the stable release of NVDA.
Sometimes Firefox will put up notices, such as when it
offers to remember passwords or when it informs you that
has blocked a redirection from the site. How can I
access these in order to either tell it I don’t want it
to save a password or that I do wanted to allow a
redirection?

Re: nvda's unresponsiveness

 

hello.
windows ten creatur update has one important feature for protection
against ransomwares.
it includes some essential system folders and you can add your desires.
nvda 2017.3 is very responsive for me using windows xp, but i
deactivated many features of firefox, like javascript, desplaying
images, remembering history, cookies, etc.
not sure about windows ten, but i dont open many programs (specially
those need heavy resources) at the same time.
i only have skype using heavy resources of my hardwares and decided to
remove it.
hope that help, God bless you all!

Evening guys

I am Marisane from SA.

I recently posted to you about nvda 2017.3 unresponsiveness, but none
of you came to my rescue.

Nvda goes unresponsive everytime I run more than one applications.

It also goes unresponsive when I am working on he internet.

I use nvda 2017.3 and win10.

My win10 is : Windows 10Ver1703 (64-bit) build 15063.726.

On other occasions, I use jaws16 but it does not go unresponsive when
I run multiple applications or am working on the internet.

What is wrong with nvda? Why so unresponsive in win10?

May I also understand about win10 fall creators? What is that?

Sorry for being without this knowledge about win10.

I am, of course, not technical.

Please help.

Kind regards
Marisane

Hi Quentin,
Unfortunately, I’m still seeing the text field related lags I mentioned
after the release of 2017.3 (namely announcements of text highlighting,
beginning/end of document/field messages etc). Luckily for me there was
nothing seriously important for me to need to upgrade (both 2017.3 and
2017.4 seem to be concentrating on Braille and Windows 10, both of which
are irrelevant for me at present), but I felt it important to mention it
again in case others are still having these issues.
I would post it as an issue on GitHub, except that as far as I’m
concerned, that site seems to have made its way down from heaven on Mars.
Forget the programming elements and integrations with Git (which is an
aeroplane cockpit in and of itself), even posting issues seems to be a
full day’s work for me.
Cheers.

Re: OT: selecting a new laptop is more difficult than before

David Moore
 

Hi guys!

My HP Stream 11 has a SSD drive, and no fan. I have nothing to hear what so ever. It makes it interesting, because sometimes, it locks, and I can’t tell if it is still on or has it totally turned off LOL! Sometimes, it comes down to holding down the power button a few seconds and then I know I have shut it down. Then, I just tap the power button, and it turns on. Now, when you start the computer, you can turn on Narrator quickly, and it will take you through the start up before JAWS or NVDA starts talking LOL!

It has been an adventure, but this baby only weighs 2 and a half pounds, and has a 128 Gig SSD Drive, and four Gigs of ram. This thing never gets hot, so it does not need a fan LOL!

Take care, guys!

Re: Emoticon is not readable in the latest master snapshot

 

Hi,
There were issues with Espeak NG and emoji announcement where Espeak crashes while speaking certain emojis in some languages. Unfortunately, this means Espeak cannot read emojis anymore, but I'm sure there will be a workaround for it.

Re: RESOLVE - Emoticon is not readable in the latest master snapshot

Hi, Joseph

The issue has been resolve after reinstalling NVDA version master-14687,6aa892b3
and to the other addons as well in particular with Emoticon.

On the other note, I disable the accessibility in the Ease of Access control panel, but wondering if this steps could really suffice the problem at all. Not sure even how it will cause of impact once I disable this features to other application. Just in case I step or encounter again a problem I will posted here to verify.
