You like wise, Rosemarie!

Somehow, we have to go to employers and do a demonstration of NVDA right there. I don’t know if they would let any person do that, or do they have to be from an organization.

Hi, David,

 

I see where you're coming from. I think if more employers would give NVDA a chance, they could save a lot of money that they could be using to update things like Microsoft office. If I had a job, I'd insist on using NVDA.

 

Merry Christmas to you and Traci.

Hi all!

I have been using NVDA 80 percent of the time since 2015.

I can access a lot more controls on web pages, access TV Streaming web sites, use YouTube like a breeze, and a lot more.

NVDA can access the Win10 universal apps much better than the shark LOL!

I only use the Shark a few times a month to do some very specific tasks.

I want to emphasize that I cannot access a lot with the shark that I can access with NVDA. I have talked to many people about NVDA, and I have helped a few people use NVDA part of the time.

It is so hard to get people to install the add ons. So many are so stubborn and say they want to use a screen reader that has everything built in, instead of having to hunt all over the place for add ons.

I give them the web sites to find all of them, but they just go back to using the Shark, which really cannot access Edge at all yet, NVDA does much better in Google apps, like Google Docs, sheets, and forms.

NVDA works great in Edge. I can do what I need to do with Edge using NVDA. NVDA is so simple to install, it does not leave footprints all over your computer, it installs in a minute or so. The shark takes 15 minutes for me, NVDA is more stable than the later versions of the Shark, Audio ducking does not work in the Shark, NVDA keeps up much better with changes in Windows, I use many Win10 apps with NVDA, and on and on.

The word is getting out, though, because everyone I talk to who uses the Shark, says that they have heard of NVDA and know someone who uses it.

We really need to get NVDA to employers, so they can see just how great it is for work as well as at home.

NVDA really can enable someone to do their job in the work place. It is easier, because NVDA would install on their computer systems, I would think, better than the Shark. Somehow, we need to let state rehabilitation agencies, employers, the government, know just how great NVDA is.

VFO constantly goes around the country and shows off the Shark to employers, state agencies, and many professional organizations.

Somehow, we need to find out how we can have many NVDA conventions around the world where NVDA is being demonstrated to high up people and all kinds of professionals.

That is where VFO has the upper hand.

We need to get the word out about just how NVDA really could enable people to do their professional job, and not just use it at home.

Merry Christmas all, and have a special time with family and friends.

Go NVDA!

I dropped the shark in 2010 April. I have not looked back since. I've tried to convince my co workers  at my job to use nvda but they say that the shark is better because nvda was not meant fo the work place. Um? Huh? No? I use nvda at my work to do stuff all the time. True it's an at home thing, but still.

Hi all. FYI the Webame survey 7 results out out. It’s a mixed bag. I’m dissappoited in NVDA useage. Its at 31.9 percent and that other screen reader I won’t talk about anymore is at 46 percent. All I’ll say is this. Spread the word about NVDA. I know a lot of you have adopted the use of it over the past year now that WINEyes is dead. Also if you can send NV Access a donation.

Re: I'm dissappointed

Gene
 

If you oversell something, you will make it harder to convince people of its benefits in the future.  NVDA is not as capable in the workplace as JAWS.  I don't follow JAWS or NVDA in terms of workplace applications but that is my strong impression and I would say that, being unable to label graphics, being unable to create what JAWS calls frames, and not having a setting, such as JAWS has, for echo all, which I used to use constantly in the old days when I had a shell account and used Pine for e-mail, are significant drawbacks in terms of some of the kinds of access I would expect to be important in various work place settings. 
 
Before people start to make all sorts of claims, probably considerably inflated, about NVDA, the facts must be clearly known and discussed here.  If I'm wrong, that's fine, but I haven't seen anything indicating I am and a year or two ago, even one of the founders of NVDA said in a discussion, that NVDA isn't nearly as capable in the work place.  I'm not quoting him but that is what I recall the essence of his quote to be.
 
Also, regarding my argument about add ons, thanks for significantly bolstering my argument that certain important add ons should be distributed with NVDA and already on.  A lot of users are never going to know about add ons, and as demonstrated in the below message, many who do will have, and insist on retaining, completely incorrect views about them.  But completely incorrect or not, you have to take them into account when deciding whether I am right, that certain add ons should be distributed with NVDA.

I totally agree with you David about supporting the use of NVDA in the workplace. One thing that might help and could help people to see the potential of NVDA in the workplace is getting certified in NVDA. There are lots of individuals getting certified in it all the time, and the certification could really help people to see the potential of it.

I worked for the government, and we had no choice. It was JAWS or nothing. The software was proprietary, and the government paid for JAWS scripts, so unless you were talented at script writing, another screen reader wouldn't have worked anyway.

I give them the web sites to find all of them, but they just go back to using the Shark, which really cannot access Edge at all yet, NVDA does much better in Google apps, like Google Docs, sheets, and forms.

NVDA works great in Edge. I can do what I need to do with Edge using NVDA. NVDA is so simple to install, it does not leave footprints all over your computer, it installs in a minute or so. The shark takes 15 minutes for me, NVDA is more stable than the later versions of the Shark, Audio ducking does not work in the Shark, NVDA keeps up much better with changes in Windows, I use many Win10 apps with NVDA, and on and on.

The word is getting out, though, because everyone I talk to who uses the Shark, says that they have heard of NVDA and know someone who uses it.

We really need to get NVDA to employers, so they can see just how great it is for work as well as at home.

NVDA really can enable someone to do their job in the work place. It is easier, because NVDA would install on their computer systems, I would think, better than the Shark. Somehow, we need to let state rehabilitation agencies, employers, the government, know just how great NVDA is.

VFO constantly goes around the country and shows off the Shark to employers, state agencies, and many professional organizations.

Somehow, we need to find out how we can have many NVDA conventions around the world where NVDA is being demonstrated to high up people and all kinds of professionals.

That is where VFO has the upper hand.

We need to get the word out about just how NVDA really could enable people to do their professional job, and not just use it at home.

Merry Christmas all, and have a special time with family and friends.

Go NVDA!

I dropped the shark in 2010 April. I have not looked back since.

Hi all. FYI the Webame survey 7 results out out. It’s a mixed bag. I’m dissappoited in NVDA useage. Its at 31.9 percent and that other screen reader I won’t talk about anymore is at 46 percent. All I’ll say is this. Spread the word about NVDA. I know a lot of you have adopted the use of it over the past year now that WINEyes is dead. Also if you can send NV Access a donation.

OK you are correct. My hearing isn't what it used to be. The click is so low I really have to listen hard to hear it.

Hi


When you set it to beeps when you press the windows key then arrow around you hear the beeps. it is a mode so sighted people do not hear what is spoken from what i heard..


The subject says sleep mode but you are talking abiyt another part of nvda.


if you want sleep mode is is the nvda key + shift key + the letter S to turn it on and off.

I thought the command was the same for the desktop and laptop layout.  It isn't.  For the laptop layout, it is NVDA shift z.  for the desktop layout, its NVDA key shift s.  Sorry about the confusion.  If you have NVDA set to the laptop layout, and are using NVDA key shift z and the command isn't working, I don't know why.

In Survey #5, January 2014,  NVDA have 18,6%

In survey #6, July 2015, have 14.6% (mainly because this year have many

low-vision users)

In survey #7, October 2017, NVDA achieves 31.9%!

 

And, remember that 60% of respondants are from North America... And NVDA

is more used in other parts of the world, like Asia and South America...

The two biggest communities are from India and Brasil!
