Re: Experiences with IBM Lotus Notes and NVDA

Domingos de Oliveira <domingos20000@...>
 

Hi,

we used Notes until Oct 2017 in our Company. Its accessibility with NVDA is quite bad. You can read the Folder Structure and the mail headers, but not the content of the mail. I use to go into the mail, copy the whole content and paste it into an empty editor window. To answer the mail i wrote my answer into the editor menu and paste it back into Lotus, not a comfortable way, but it worked. The context menues and the normal menues works quite okay as far as I remember. Other parts of the programm like the calendar doesn't work at all with NVDA.

Have anyone used Lotus Notes with NVDA? Any tip or tutorial to give this user? None of us have never used this program because it’s very old, in fact we thought that only a few companies would continue using Lotus Notes, because, for example, there are new cheaper (and some of them open source) solutions.

Thanks in advance.

ms account

 

If you forget your username several things you can do.

1.  in apps and accounts your username should appear.

2.  if you have emails from microsoft about your account your username will appear.

If you sign into office and open the app of your choice your username will appear.

If you can create a local account you can get back into your computer.

If you have another system with skype on it chances are that you can get your username from there.

If you have friends on skype ask them what your skypename and or email for your microsoft account is, chances are they will have it.

However to avoid this stupid situation.

1.  if you have a backup of your data and you really should the easiest way is to reformat and reinstall windows that will get you back in.

2.  make a local account you can use a password or not up to you.

Next add your ms account in apps and accounts.

This is how I do it, its less dangerous without not logging in.

I had this happen to a friend's system, a good reformat and restore of all the data and setup as I said and we don't have a problem.

At any rate I have given you at least 5-6 ways to find your password.

Sadly ms website is not helpfull, I guess you could ring microsoft for it, you are using an alternit email address, ask microsfot support and tell them you forgot your username, if you can remember your password they can probably email your userid at you.


Re: Using Windows 10 calendar.

 

Well have you signed to win10 app accounts, add your microsoft and google account in and you should be able to sync normally.

You need to go to apps and accounts, link your ms and your google accounts to it to fully use it then you can use that as a sort of shell.

Re: How to makeNVDA announce workspace I;m in

 

Hi,
I've been trying to look for a solution to this but it isn't easy (and also because I'm committed to another work at the moment). At least when you open Task View and go to desktops, you'll know which virtual desktop you are on if it is selected. If you do find a solution, do send a pull request on Windows 10 App Essentials, as the fix is appropriate for that add-on (not a new one).
Cheers,
Joseph

Welcome to NVDA 2018: Preferences part 1 posted

 

Hi all,

 

The next installment in Welcome to NVDA 2018 series is now up at http://www.josephsl.net/tutorials under Welcome to NVDA 2018 section. This one is the first part in a two part series on NVDA preferences. Because NVDA ships with a lot of options (at least 110 options available), and to make it consistent with previous tutorial editions, preferences has been split into two parts. Also, due to hardware configuration, two computers were used.

 

Changes from 2015 edition:

 

  • Completely redone.
  • General settings: no changes.
  • Synthesizer: audio ducking setting is covered.
  • Supported speech synthesizers: Espeak NG, Microsoft SAPI5, Windows OneCore and Nuance Vocalizer are featured.
  • Voice settings: no changes.
  • Synth settings ring: some clarifications.
  • Braille settings: too many to list, the most prominent ones being cursor shape and focus context changes.
  • Supported braille displays: hinted at changes coming in NVDA 2018.1.
  • Keyboard settings: an example of using skim reading, speech interrupt examples, and spelling error buzzer is mentioned (Popular apps/MS Word segment has an example).
  • Mouse settings: no changes.
  • Saving and restoring settings: no changes.

 

In addition to the above, the first addendum topic is now available: touch interaction dialog (to make its debut as part of NVDA 2018.1). This topic will be incorporated into the main tutorial once NVDA 2018.1 is released.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Other forms of punctuation won't work.  I've experimented before and nothing is longer than one period.  I don't know if there is any way to do what you want but that isn't one.

Try other forms of punctuation. Colon, ellipses, i.e. three periods/dots

Played around with some different punctuation there for you to check

NVDA obviously pauses for commas and full stops (periods) but does
anybody have any ideas about how to increase the length of the pause?

I ask because I use NVDA for performing my poetry (I have a rubbish
memory so alternate poems I've memorised with ones I use NVDA to

stop are fine, but there are a couple of poems where it'd be great if

any extra pausing into the rendition of a line of text using NVDA :)

Re: Help with NVDA and Google Classroom

John Isige
 

FYI you can toggle focus mode in NVDA with NVDA-space. Also, you might
use single letter navigation toggle, NVDA-shift-space. See the user
guide, Chap. 6. Some of the single letter commands can be really helpful
depending on the specific website, e.g. navigating by separators might
work better for some sites than headings.

Hello.

I’ve used Google classroom as  student for around two years without
problems. The web interface is mostly accesible, although you need to
turn on the focus mode in certain dialogs to access some sections or
to enhance the experience. Same for the iOS app: it is in certain
things less accessible/usable/complete than the web interface, but can
be used with VoiceOver without special difficulties.

Note that classroom have certain of its aspects, specially those that
involve file sharing,  integrated with GoogleDrive, so probably the
user will need also GDrive knowledge.

Re: New custom NVDA Add-on. Who ask to?

 

Hi,

One avenue we can try (and no, not an add-on yet): can you try the following for me and see if it makes a difference:

  1. Open keyboard settings (Control+NVDA+K).
  2. Tab through the dialog until you arrive at the last item prior to OK button. In English, it’ll say, “Handle keys from other applications”, which is a checkbox.
  3. Uncheck the checkbox and press Enter.
  4. Try typing with the stenotype and see if NVDA announces new syllables when entering text and deleting text (for those unfamiliar with it, a stenotype is a chorded keyboard (similar to the braille keyboard in its operation) where you press one or more key combinations to enter text in syllable units).

 

If the above steps work, then we’re done. If not, then please ask the stenotype app developer to contact NV Access and I for consultation work. If NV Access says an add-on is the best route, then I’ll ask the add-ons community to investigate this on your behalf.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi guys,

I thank you very much for all of your answers, opinions and informations.

First of all sorry for my English, I'll do my best.

Before to enter in details into my needs, in my first post I've aksed if exist some companies on the market which offer scripting services for NVDA. Of course paying for that.

In the next lines I'll try to explain as short and clear as possible the situation. Any kind of suggestion to solve it from people with more experience than me, will be well accepted. I thank you in advance for the patience.

I am a stenographer. I use a steno machine, which is a keyboard, to transcribe registered audio from Court. For those who can see, here's a short video of me, typing on the keyboard:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emiCbuMhFxs

On a standard QWERTY keyboard you type letter by letter, while on a steno keyboard you type syllable by syllable, or word by word.

It is much faster. If you are a good stenographer you can type in realtime what a speaker says. Stenographers are also used for realtime subtitling in television.

In Italy I didn't find any other visually impaired person who makes this job. I don't know if it is a specific problem of Italy, but here most of the blind and visually impaired people's job is yet telephone receptionist.

For this reason the Italian National Organisation for Blind and Visually Impaired People I belong to, is interested to share and diffuse this kind of job for those who are interested.

I began to lose seriously my sight on January 2015. So I've left my job and begin to study stenography.

On January 2017 a company hires me and since that moment I'm doing this job. But since three years I'm building and improving a workflow, to make it 100% accessible.

At the moment I can say it is 90% accessible. I miss the last step, and it is the reason of this post and the need of a custom add-on.

Until this job is not 100% accessible me and the Organization I belong, we cannot share and diffuse.

If you run the youtube video above, you can hear the human speaker, and also the NVDA vocalizer voice which repeats what the speaker says, while I'm typing.

The voice helps me to know if what I'm typing is right or not. Of course I should concentrate on two voices at the same time. It is like to listen continuously an echo. After a bit of practice the brain can get used to it.

Basically the main problem is in case I make a mistake. In that situation I press a button on the keyboard which works exactly like an "undo", or a CTRL+Z: it deletes syllable by syllable or word by word.

In this case NVDA is not able to read. So I have audio feedback when I go forward, while typing, but I have not audio feedback when I go backward, while deleting.

In this video I've explained more in detail the issue, maybe it is too long, sorry for that:
https://youtu.be/sa_fYoVhyrc

I've tried different Screen Reader, but NVDA is the only one which gives me audio feedback when I type with a steno machine. JAWS doesn't work. JAWS gives me audio feedback only if I type with a standard QWERTY keyboard.

For this reason this is the first community I ask help.

I've red above NVDA is developed in python language. Also the application I use to convert steno keyboard strokes into words and letters on the screen, is developed in python, and it is open source too.

I thank you very much for reading until the end. If you know any company, or studio, or association, od individual person who can help me to solve this problem, I will appreciate a lot, also JAWS if you think is the best solution.

Daniele.

I've red above NVDA is developed in python language. Also the application I use to convert steno keyboard strokes into words and letters on the screen, is developed in python, and it is open source too.

I thank you very much for reading until the end. If you know any company, or studio, or association, od individual person who can help me to solve this problem, I will appreciate a lot, also JAWS if you think is the best solution.

Daniele.


Re: Help with NVDA and Google Classroom

Hello.

I’ve used Google classroom as  student for around two years without problems. The web interface is mostly accesible, although you need to turn on the focus mode in certain dialogs to access some sections or to enhance the experience. Same for the iOS app: it is in certain things less accessible/usable/complete than the web interface, but can be used with VoiceOver without special difficulties.
Note that classroom have certain of its aspects, specially those that involve file sharing,  integrated with GoogleDrive, so probably the user will need also GDrive knowledge.

regards.

Morning All,

I have a middle school student whos school uses Google Classroom for all email and sharing of information. So, time for me to gain skills. Does anyone know of a good tutorial for doing this that does not involve changing to Google’s screen reader. If not I would love any suggestions from folks who use elements of Google’s suite of programs.

Thanks for any help,

Rick

Re: The length of a stop

This sounds like a Question for the Synth maker to answer to me.
I really do not know which software decides on the pauses, and whether there is any way on some to insert silent spaces so to speak.

Subject: [nvda] The length of a stop


Hi all,

NVDA obviously pauses for commas and full stops (periods) but does anybody have any ideas about how to increase the length of the pause?

I ask because I use NVDA for performing my poetry (I have a rubbish memory so alternate poems I've memorised with ones I use NVDA to perform). 99 percent of the time the regular pauses for comma and full stop are fine, but there are a couple of poems where it'd be great if I could get a double length pause for a full stop, or the combined pause of a full stop followed by a comma.

If I try using such combinations there is no change to the pause and, unless I set punctuation level to none, a line like "This is a test. . To see what happens" actually says “This a test dot To see what happens”. With punctuation level set to none it doesn't say the “dot” but it doesn't pause any longer either.

Just thought I'd ask in case anybody has any ideas for how I could add any extra pausing into the rendition of a line of text using NVDA :)

Thanks,

Giles

Re: Duplicate messages in my thunderbird email client

Are these all messages, or just messages from yourself to, say this list and to others.
Google always seems to send back an email to the sender every time you send one, but if this was the case then I'd not expect to see any duplicates from anyone on the list but yourself.
I'll pass this over to other Tbird experts, but are you using Imap or pop3 collection? If its Imap then not a lot you can do about it, but Pop3 should be able to be filtered by rules you set up so the returns go to another folder of your choice.
Note though that I find it very handy to use imap for looking at the raw incoming stream and the spam folders.
