No not really, as they are by definition emulating a display form in graphics that looks like the old computer its emulating I know this is true as I was involved in one for the Spectrum some years ago, and no screenreader could see the graphic or text as both were merely pictures.
Now if we are talking games like adventures that were textual I have heard there are ways to make some of these work with a screenreader as they can be use in a kind of simulated dos mode. Don't ask me how though, as they are not of interest to me.

Well Firefox has been added to the firestick, but I believe Amazon has agreed to sell chrome based devices now, so where is the problem. I'm suspicious that Amazons system may well hijack Googles data collection so their devices won't let google earn money.
Its all awfully silly and counter productive for all parties.
The only certain thing in the future is that broadband prices or subscriptions to paid services will go up as the people who own the internet need to be able to have an income to create more capacity and bandwidth and renew old stuff. One way or the other somebody has to pay.

To me, currently Skype and for that matter universal apps has lost the
plot in that they are not universal at all as writers can make them
all look completely different, when at least in classic windows one
knew you had a menu bar toolbars etc, and not this apparent throw
everything up in the air and where it drops is where it stays muddle

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.

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?

It is pretty important that I be able to read this file, and possibly others from same source. Of course, I told the person who provided the file to me.

If someone has adobe acrobat pro, could I possibly send the file to you and you OCR it and send it back? I'm thinking through all options. If anyone can help, it is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

There are three parts left (actually, four because I need to split preferences section into two). The next part I'll be working on is preferences and it'll take around (or more than) three hours to traverse due to sheer number of options now, and it won't be fun to just talk about them (you'll actually get to hear the effects of changing options). In addition to talking about preferences, you'll be introduced to more NVDA features, including alternate say all, skim reading, synth settings ring, demos of different speech synthesizers, a deeper introduction to speech dictionaries than what you'll find in the user guide, indentation tones, keyboard interrupt, screen echo and more.

After preferences, I'll stop by tools to talk about speech viewer, log viewer and what not, as well as a complete coverage of configuration profiles and Windows 10 OCR. After that, the last part will indeed cover add-ons, and there are cool add-ons featured in there.

For folks just getting introduced to NVDA: a few years ago, when I published the first edition of Welcome to NVDA (2013), I advertised it as the audio version of the NVDA user guide, and I'm not kidding. My tutorial covers everything you need to know about NVDA, including installation, usage, preferences to add-ons. I think some of you call it the authoritative tutorial or the one-stop reference, but there are more interesting tutorials out now, including the definitive authoritative one in the form of Basic Training module from NV Access. But this year, I think you can say mine is one of the most authoritative guide on NVDA, as it is a tutorial produced by an actual NVDA expert with years of NVDA contribution experience and a person who wrote some of the features discussed in this tutorial set. The feature to play suggestion sound you hear throughout this tutorial is one of my brainchildren, and you'll get to see another one once we talk about how to disable individual add-ons.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

There are three parts left (actually, four because I need to split preferences section into two). The next part I'll be working on is preferences and it'll take around (or more than) three hours to traverse due to sheer number of options now, and it won't be fun to just talk about them (you'll actually get to hear the effects of changing options). In addition to talking about preferences, you'll be introduced to more NVDA features, including alternate say all, skim reading, synth settings ring, demos of different speech synthesizers, a deeper introduction to speech dictionaries than what you'll find in the user guide, indentation tones, keyboard interrupt, screen echo and more.

After preferences, I'll stop by tools to talk about speech viewer, log viewer and what not, as well as a complete coverage of configuration profiles and Windows 10 OCR. After that, the last part will indeed cover add-ons, and there are cool add-ons featured in there.

For folks just getting introduced to NVDA: a few years ago, when I published the first edition of Welcome to NVDA (2013), I advertised it as the audio version of the NVDA user guide, and I'm not kidding. My tutorial covers everything you need to know about NVDA, including installation, usage, preferences to add-ons. I think some of you call it the authoritative tutorial or the one-stop reference, but there are more interesting tutorials out now, including the definitive authoritative one in the form of Basic Training module from NV Access. But this year, I think you can say mine is one of the most authoritative guide on NVDA, as it is a tutorial produced by an actual NVDA expert with years of NVDA contribution experience and a person who wrote some of the features discussed in this tutorial set. The feature to play suggestion sound you hear throughout this tutorial is one of my brainchildren, and you'll get to see another one once we talk about how to disable individual add-ons.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,
I'll introduce several in an addendum of some sort. And no, I plan not to record What's New audio for 2018.1, as I'm getting a bit busy in a few weeks and have asked the community to produce these.
Cheers,
Joseph

AdBlock ... and now I've been able to use gmail (basic view( with no

The feature to play suggestion sound you hear throughout this tutorial is one of my brainchildren, and you'll get to see another one once we talk about how to disable individual add-ons.

Re: Welcome to NVDA 2018: a parade of popular apps

 

Hi,
There are three parts left (actually, four because I need to split preferences section into two). The next part I'll be working on is preferences and it'll take around (or more than) three hours to traverse due to sheer number of options now, and it won't be fun to just talk about them (you'll actually get to hear the effects of changing options). In addition to talking about preferences, you'll be introduced to more NVDA features, including alternate say all, skim reading, synth settings ring, demos of different speech synthesizers, a deeper introduction to speech dictionaries than what you'll find in the user guide, indentation tones, keyboard interrupt, screen echo and more.
After preferences, I'll stop by tools to talk about speech viewer, log viewer and what not, as well as a complete coverage of configuration profiles and Windows 10 OCR. After that, the last part will indeed cover add-ons, and there are cool add-ons featured in there.
For folks just getting introduced to NVDA: a few years ago, when I published the first edition of Welcome to NVDA (2013), I advertised it as the audio version of the NVDA user guide, and I'm not kidding. My tutorial covers everything you need to know about NVDA, including installation, usage, preferences to add-ons. I think some of you call it the authoritative tutorial or the one-stop reference, but there are more interesting tutorials out now, including the definitive authoritative one in the form of Basic Training module from NV Access. But this year, I think you can say mine is one of the most authoritative guide on NVDA, as it is a tutorial produced by an actual NVDA expert with years of NVDA contribution experience and a person who wrote some of the features discussed in this tutorial set.

Re: Where are the pluggins?

 

Hi,

Er, you’re still using Windows 10 Calculator add-on? That was released a long time ago, superseded by WinTenApps.

Going back to the original question from Tonea: speech viewer is part of NVDA.

To others: I think it might not be wise to tell her all sorts of add-ons you’ve got, as Tonea wants to find out where Focus Highlight is and someone did gave the answer.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

 

There are a number of useful add ons available. You are only limited by your imagination. Some that I would recommend because I use them on almost an everyday basis are: OBJ-pad, golden cursor, windows 10 app essentials, clip contents designer, clip speak, easy table navigator, emoticons, enhanced aria, place markers, read feeds, remote support, resource monitor, and systray list, I'm sure other NVDA users will also weigh in on this with recommendations and suggestions.    


Hope this helps.

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!
