I use basic view too. My problem, I believe, is not related to gmail
because I have this problem only with chrome. At first I thought the
internet is slow, but it happens only in gmail page. I really don't
know what is going on.

Hello Dear Group;

I am searching for your advices about using NVDA for Mathematic symbols.
I have a statistic course instructed on MOODLE learning management system.
most of the content in this course is coming from PDF.
in addition there are many Math symbols written on the web site.
Some of them just copy pasted from word.
I really need reliable updated links to read and learn how to make all
the content accessible for screen reader for my student.

Thanks in Advance.

Hello,
I like google crhome a lot. However, I can not use my gmail with it.
When I get to my mail, nvda reads only the first line as if it still
downloads the page. I need to refresh the page fiew times to get it
right. This doesn't hapenn in other browsers.
Does anyone have similar issues or a solution for it?
Best regards


Re: Foobar 2000 (was RE: [nvda] What do we like for a media player besides Winamp?)

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Well, that's odd. After alt-tabbing back to VLC, suddenly NVDA is able to identify elements, including the random button. I really have no idea why I could not observe this behaviour before. I sometimes have similar weirdness with JAWS where controls will not read correctly one moment, but revisiting the window later suddenly makes them visible. Damned if I know.

So John, it looks like you can actually do most of what you want with this programme, provided there's enough feedback.

Me too, or if anybody wants to gives tips on VLC for audio playback, I can try that too. Gom Audio is gone, I loaded albums into it, it started playing, and then pretty much locked up my machine, or at least the keyboard. Nothing would work, not its context menu, Windows key-x, I couldn't switch windows, you name it. So I hit the power button to shut down, rebooted, and uninstalled it. I'm fine setting things up and customizing, but my patience is like zero right now. If it can't even do the basic thing it's supposed to, it's gone.

That stuff from Microsoft just will never cut it, and I never did get

Re: Foobar 2000 (was RE: [nvda] What do we like for a media player besides Winamp?)

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

I'm making some progress with VLC. Unfortunately the biggest problem is the lack of audio feedback in the programme. I have tried with both nVDA and JAWS, and feedback with JAWS seems slightly better, as it is able to recognise some of the buttons and edit fields, even if their function and application is nebulous. I have the VLC NVDA add-on, and its function is minimal at best. It does nothing to improve usability of the preferences dialoguqe or the playlist editor, and those are the two most complicated areas that would clearly benefit from more feedback.

I have discovered the following about playlists:
You can open the playlist editor from either the view menu, or using ctrl-l.
You can add as many folders to a playlist as you like. When you tab to a certain field, which the screen-reader will not speak, you can arrow up and down through tracks, which *should* be announced as you use up and down arrow.
There is a button to randomise playback (see documentation), but I have not been able to find or use this button.
The applications key activates a context menu which allows you to move files around in the playlist, delete them, stream them, or get information about them (presumably tag and other media info). But the random toggle is not to be found in this menu.

I have also tinkered around a bit with the preferences dialogue. Once you set the radio button to "all", you will see a much bigger options screen, with hundreds of settings. Again, unfortunately, some of the checkboxes and such are only read when you check or uncheck them. There is little indication of what you are supposed to do with a control once you tab to it. I have found that the spacebar, for whatever reason, is more effective than using the enter key.

It's too bad this player doesn't work better for us. It's a real lean and powerful piece of software. There are additional interfaces you can get which go over top of and replace the default GUI. It's possible that something along these lines may work better for accessibility, but I know nothing about them and have not tried them.

Re: Malware remover working with NVDA

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

I have it, and I am pretty sure it's just the background processing that does not work after the trial version. The on-demand scanning, which is what the programme is actually useful for in my view, still works, and definitions still can be updated.

I keep it around and it has saved me at least once. I installed a programme that included a bunch of other baggage. I didn't realise I was allowing this other stuff to be installed, which all automatically started running on my machine. None of it was exactly malicious as such, but it was definitely unwanted. A quick MB scan revealed the culprits and I was able to clear everything in a relatively short time. Mostly this was a lot of crap in the registry, including a homepage and search redirect. Of course it's my fault for letting this stuff install in the first place, but my screen-reader (JAWS at the time) was not telling me what was on the screen, even with the use of the JAWS cursor, so I just hit the next button a whole bunch of times, and that's all it takes, sometimes. Lesson learned, but it made me glad I keep MalwareBytes around, you know?

Since you use malwarebytes from time to time, why do you not keep it installed on your machine? Is there a problem with doing that?

Also, you say you "run malwarebytes when you need to". How do you know when you need to? Do you just hope that any malware shows itself as strange behaviour on your system, rather than just doing something sinister in the background?

Hello all,


Thank you for the replies. My concern is that many websites and applications turn the "cards" into images instead of retaining the original text.


I do not want to need the OCR add-on every time I flip a card.


It is not just a matter of finding a flashcard site as there are countless numbers of them but to find one where both the card creation and card review sides are screen reader compatible.


As has been mentioned, iOS has several screen reader friendly options but there is little to know information out there for Windows (or Android, although that is a post for a different list).

Hello list,

I sent a message several weeks ago asking for recommendations of accessible flashcard websites ore applications. I now cannot seem to find that message and got no replies. 

I am guessing now that the message never made it to the list and apologize if I am mistaken and this is a repeat. 

I am looking for something to help me study a foreign language, ideally something that allows me to create my own sets of questions and answers and then can be used to test me by checking an answer I type against the original question and answer set. 

If that isn't clear, I mean something that will not just show me in text form one side of a flash card and then show me the other but instead show me one side and ask me to type the other like with Duolingo, for example. 

Does anyone have experience with a website or application that works well with NVDA? 

I was toying a bit with quizlet but was then told to try Anki. According to the documentation Anki sounds like it would have keyboard commands for most functions and thus might be assumed to be somewhat accessible. However, when I install and run it, the window simply speaks "frame." 

If anyone feels like playing with it, I am curious if the complete inaccessibility is a quirt of my system, a shortcoming in my NVDA skills, or if this open source project is as absolutely inacccessible as it seems. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Cheers,
Sally 




Re: Malware remover working with NVDA

 

I guess not, however I don't run it unless its needed, I don't care for its nag screens and I really don't need to run it every year only if someone says something is wrong or something, if there was a portable or something like that I could take round on a drive it would be a different matter.

Usually when I service a machine especially in a business, the admins say what is x doing on my system, its probably malware.

So usually I have the set software I absolutely need for myself.

that is ccleaner, dimention4 and 7zip if I need that.

Some have cdbxp for if I need that.

I don't generally need malwarebytes.

In fact if something goes wrong and I need to security scan the system that could add hours to my work.

Every year I will fix user issues, update and make sure it works.

I don't have time or the want to fix issues caused by security software.

3 times during my servicing span I have had this issue.

Once it was malware and I had to scramble to fix dammage.

The other 2 though in one case, the  security icons and such had confused the user so much he ended up installing malware to fix the icons that scared him forcing me to have to declutter and tell him what was and what was not.

On another case the security software said there was a problem, and the user freaked out and installed loads and loads of things they didn't need meaning I was awake for 3 days mostly clearing junk.

In another instance, the same user had the same issue all it boiled down to was some issue with a program, a bug I was able to report and which got fixed but the user went totally bonkas with the system and I had to reformat to fix it.

In short I like to keep it simple.

If its not needed I kill it.

Now if malwarebytes was like 100-500mb I'd probably keep it up but its only like 20mb really and for the time I need it which is almost never well.

Fact is the interface is not really accessible, but I use it for what I need it for then kill it.

If there are portable scan only security tools that work just as well that I can carry round with me on a memmory stick and not eve have to install then thats different.

CCleaner is fine to install for me so I can just be quick though I know a portable exists for that but the rest.

Re: New Skype Installation a Complete Disaster!

 

It does.

I have switched all my users to skype universal to keep the software updated but to be honest skype classic is in the tablets section so unless ms decides that windows tablets need to update to universal to which they will probably do eventually then maybe.

At any rate even if skype does die, they will have to change the minimal version on server to have it not even work and they only just did that last year and that was for 7.2 and older, up to this point you could probably still work with 6 or 5 or 4 or even 3 maybe not 2 but even so, who knows.

This new skype 8 will last till the end of win 8x at any rate.

It would be good if ms let us blinks use our own windows desktops, shells and interfaces for their cores so we could use their stuff without their junk.

Hi,
Skype universal app does have shortcut keys, such as Alt+1 to go to
conversations, Alt+2 for contacts, Alt+3 for bots and so on).

I have used NVDA successfully with Skype for many years.
Suddenly, tonight, on my Windows 7 laptop, when I entered
Skype, a new version was forcibly installed, something like
Version 8.1.2, and it presented me with an interface that I
could not comprehend with NVDA. None of the shortcut keys
that  I previously used would work. I received a call from a
friend  right after this forced installation and could not
answer it,  because the usual alt-PageUp key combo for
answering a call  was useless, as were all other previous
shortcut keys. What is the solution to this problem. I
totally uninstalled Skype for  now. Do we give up on Skype
as NVDA
users, or install a different version or perhaps some other chat program?

Re: Malware remover working with NVDA

 

Well I use malwarebytes to scan a system, but as for keeping it on the system, no, windows defender handles a lot of the stuff one needs to bother with and the more advanced stuff are just not accessible enough for my liking.

And when they are, ie sophos, if we have a problem a false positive its to quick to flag and then we have issues.

If a false positive is flagged, we need to exclude it reinstall the program and hope it works or in the case of one of my friends that had the issue, reformat, exclude and hope they don't have to reformat again.

I really don't care for antimalware tools anyway I run malwarebytes when I need to but then its off again, it will handle a scan, and a clear out as long as I don'

't give a stuff what I am deleting and usually I don't.

There is a difference between the alt attribute not being present and alt="" (null alt text) on a graphic. When the alt attribute is not present, screen readers often default to speaking the filename of an image. However, when alt="" is present, the image is ignored by screen readers. This is by design. Alt="" is supposed to be used for images that convey no content, but are decorative in nature.
However, you bring up a good point. It is impossible for screen reader users to navigate to these graphics. Hence, if a screen reader user wanted to copy an image with alt="" there would be no way to accomplish this. Perhaps NVDA could provide an option to not ignore images with null alt text. Of course, NVDA could only speak the filename of the graphic. If this option existed, I would want to know if the image encountered would be one with null alt text. I would assume the state of this option would be disabled and that a user could enable it when desired.

Regarding collapsed vs expanded. Visually, when a section can be expanded (hence, it is collapsed) a plus sign is displayed. Visually, a user could click on the plus sign to expand the section or menu. Also, when a section is expanded, a minus sign is displayed allowing a user to click on the minus sign to collapse the tree. This is why your braille display displays the way it does. The plus and minus characters do not indicate the state of the tree or menu, but the action that can be taken.

I think it depends on how you think of it.
IE there are always two ways.

I'm not sure what you mean about untagged graphics though. Often if

Hi all:

 I have two suggestions about nvda browse on website.

 First, nvda will be lost graphic when the graphic has no any "alt
text", example: alt = "" or no alt attribute.
this design let us no method click it (if is can onclick) or make
something for this graphic (if download the graphic) because this
graphic is gone in nvda's world, so I hope nvda still show this
graphic by "gra" or some signed, tell us graphic has exists.
I think if later nvda can do the mark on the graph, then the graph
should be displayed anyway.

 Second, the wai-aria attribute "aria-expanded" show condition is
put upside down.
if aria-expanded = false, nvda will announce "collapsed" is right
but braille display show "+" (plus), if aria-expanded = true, nvda
will announce "expanded" is right but braille display show "-"
(minus).
Is not the plus and minus the opposite display?
or I would like to know why the plus sign is collapsed and minus is
expanded yet?
Because this thinking seems to be somewhat different from our Asians.

Re: New Skype Installation a Complete Disaster!

 

Well you may want to hold that thought a little longer.

I read yesterday that someone loaded every harry potter book, and fanfic into an ai to see if it could write one using all that material and it did write a comedy type thing, I mean it could do it but it was weird.

Even if an ai did write the next software package I am not sure if that would fully work for us if it did it generally.

I stopped using it because, like another poster, I couldn't figure out

was also slow, e.g. at bringing up conversations, and it didn't seem to
read
them very well. It tended to read multiple messages when you arrowed
around.
I freely admit part of this might be my inability to use it, which is
why I
asked for documentation from Microsoft. But all the documentation I can
find
seems to be for the old skype. I got tired of messing with it and went
back

I'd like to second Joseph's advice to actually install NVDA and see
how it presents your application.  But in addition, as a sighted user
you will probably want to do two things:

1. Install the "Focus Highlight" plugin -- it makes it *far* easier
to visually see what NVDA is describing at any given point in time; and

2. Enable the "Speech Viewer" feature (under Tools in the NVDA menu)
-- it shows everything going to the speech synthesizer, but it just
appears in a scrolling window -- quite useful!

Re: Flash card program/website?

Sally Kiebdaj
 

Hello all,


Thank you for the replies. My concern is that many websites and applications turn the "cards" into images instead of retaining the original text.


I do not want to need the OCR add-on every time I flip a card.


It is not just a matter of finding a flashcard site as there are countless numbers of them but to find one where both the card creation and card review sides are screen reader compatible.


As has been mentioned, iOS has several screen reader friendly options but there is little to know information out there for Windows (or Android, although that is a post for a different list).


Thank you,

Hello list,

I sent a message several weeks ago asking for recommendations of accessible flashcard websites ore applications. I now cannot seem to find that message and got no replies. 

I am guessing now that the message never made it to the list and apologize if I am mistaken and this is a repeat. 

I am looking for something to help me study a foreign language, ideally something that allows me to create my own sets of questions and answers and then can be used to test me by checking an answer I type against the original question and answer set. 

If that isn't clear, I mean something that will not just show me in text form one side of a flash card and then show me the other but instead show me one side and ask me to type the other like with Duolingo, for example. 

Does anyone have experience with a website or application that works well with NVDA? 

I was toying a bit with quizlet but was then told to try Anki. According to the documentation Anki sounds like it would have keyboard commands for most functions and thus might be assumed to be somewhat accessible. However, when I install and run it, the window simply speaks "frame." 

If anyone feels like playing with it, I am curious if the complete inaccessibility is a quirt of my system, a shortcoming in my NVDA skills, or if this open source project is as absolutely inacccessible as it seems. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Cheers,
Sally 



Re: [nvda-addons] Automatic switch to coresponding braille output table

Adriani Botez
 

Rui,

regarind first point, that setting is turned on in my braille settings. But Turkish output table does not have 8 dot format. So, NVDA takes both possibilities given by those output tables. That is the problem. We need kind of prioritization (for example only Turkish letters in 6 dot braille, the rest in 8 dot braille according to german 8 dot computer braille which has been selected as first output table).

Adrian, you can toggle that feature on NVDA, Preferences, Braille settings menu.
It is named "Expand to computer braille for the word at the cursor".

Re: [nvda-addons] Automatic switch to coresponding braille output table

Rui,

thanks for your suggestions. Regarding second point, it is not required that all national braille entities have to agree about that. An user who wants to read miltilingual texts would learn that standard by himself because it would be a confortable way to read multi lingual texts. I have learned 8 dot computer braille by myself in order to make use of more braille cells on a braille display even though in Romania everone learns 6 dot braille in the school. And after all, the more people learn a certain standard, the probable will be that braille entities will adopt it. It would be an optional output table and nothing more.

Adriani

I have used NVDA successfully with Skype for many years.
Suddenly, tonight, on my Windows 7 laptop, when I entered
Skype, a new version was forcibly installed, something like
Version 8.1.2, and it presented me with an interface that I
could not comprehend with NVDA. None of the shortcut keys
that I previously used would work. I received a call from a
friend right after this forced installation and could not
answer it, because the usual alt-PageUp key combo for
answering a call was useless, as were all other previous
shortcut keys. What is the solution to this problem. I
totally uninstalled Skype for now. Do we give up on Skype
as NVDA
users, or install a different version or perhaps some other chat program?

Re: Where are the pluggins?

Speech Viewer is apart of NVDA already. I don't recall how to envoke that command.

Good News! A manager has agreed to complete the paperwork to get the ball rolling on installing NVDA on my machine. But, I have to have my ducks in a row. Where do I go for these plugins Marshall talked about so I can point to price and location? They are “Focus Highlight” and “Speech Viewer”. I looked on the NVDA website and didn’t see them.

If anyone knows of another plugin I should look at, now would be the time. Remember, I’m sighted and trying to make our software and support documents handicap accessible. I need to have this turned in ASAP (as soon as possible).

I'd like to second Joseph's advice to actually install NVDA and see how it presents your application.  But in addition, as a sighted user you will probably want to do two things:

 

1. Install the "Focus Highlight" plugin -- it makes it *far* easier to visually see what NVDA is describing at any given point in time; and

2. Enable the "Speech Viewer" feature (under Tools in the NVDA menu) -- it shows everything going to the speech synthesizer, but it just appears in a scrolling window -- quite useful!
