I suspect though that it may not have any events passed to it from Firefox, if there was this, then there would not have been any need for navigational sounds to start with as we could just use the windows ones already there.

I did some digging for you! This is why I love blind people so much. Giving opinions rather than answering your question, to the person who is looking for the sound scheme. It's not worth hearing all opinions, much less explain it to a super blindy. :, don't bother with them. They are not worth a reply. Anyway, I did some digging for you and, although, it is not browser focused, it may help. It is a sound scheme for windows that covers the whole operating system, even web browsers.

Re: Firefox not displaying always when first loaded up

If you don't like it it has options to fiddle with it disable it or remove it.
Sadly it seems the developer has not updated it since the year before last and at present its unclear if such an add on would be able to be designed for the new quantum interface. Anyone care to comment from knowledge.

I'm not replying to any more posts about whether or not you need sound. to me its obvious many do to others not so obvious, and that is just the way life is, its just like ribbon menus. many people want nvda to do what Jaws does and virtualised menus back to the non ribbon type but in my mind it is probably trivial for Microsoft to make menu types a choice like all other aspects of the gui front end, the fact that they don't leads me to my own conclusions on the reason.

Note change the topic name if you comment on the last point only included as a for instance to demonstrate the point.

I am going to sound like a broken bit of 78 record here, and I do apologise.
Please could we have some optional sounds with Firefox so we can hear when
downloads are complete, when clicking something actually worked and when the
page is fully loaded again.

I grew up with ie and only went to firefox when navigational sounds was
released, since certain ahem, other browsers in later windows decided to not
go to sounds.
There has been a polarisation of views on this list, but I do seriously
feel, from the people who do not use this list and are only interested in
using their computers and are not expert users, I need to act as an advocate
and say that having no sound is very very off-putting to such users.
Thank you and have a safe trip home...

Re: Firefox not displaying always when first loaded up

Actually 58 is much better in this respect, but has no sound as I said.
I could not get the download dialogue to read in it in the portable version however but I imagine that will get sorted.
I don't think taws done deliberately though I have to say it was handled very badly, it was as is nearly always the case with these things that nobody realised the implications for us.
I personally feel all programmers who are writing code for mass use should have a grounding in accessibility code before they actually start, as re gluing on fixes afterwards looks bad and is normally clunky and messy. Brian

Well mozilla has shown what they think of accessibility, I couldn't get the addons in 57 to work, noscript just didn't work anymore, all the accessible menus were gone, all the radio buttons in some options some of them didn't work.

To fix issues you must turn off accessibility services may I say more?

Mozilla firefox is no longer on my box at least unless waterfox decides to become inaccessible that is probably going to happen in june but lets hope we can keep the old addon style and not the stupid web extentions which seem to not be accessible.

The point is that they are, as far as I am aware developing a new api which gets around the hooking in of code to the browser.
This is why at the moment I'm using the 52esr.
I do not care if the add on is not compatible, when I asked why it was this way I was told it was because inn order to get at the data it needs it has to go in via a similar route to nvda, and that door is now shut.
I'm afraid that all the people are missing the point and as I do not want to upset anyone I'm not going to be at all rude by dumbing down my reasons.

They didn't stop a feature. The add on is no longer compatible. You can tell if a page refreshes, at least in my experience, because your place is lost and the page starts reading again from the top. I think the feature you, and users in general, should be far more worried about losing is the accessibility feature, listed as accessibility when you are tabbing around options in the advanced part of the dialog, that stops pages from redirecting or refreshing without asking.

Busy is what is said at times when a web page is loading. When a page has finished loading, it starts reading automatically, if NVDA defaults are used. And while a page is loading, you can't move around on the page.

I have no objection to wanting sounds. My objection is in being so unyielding about sounds that you would, evidently, not use the newest version of Firefox even after the ESR is no longer being kept current with security updates. I don't know if that's what you, Brian, are saying you will do, but you said you wouldn't use the newer versions of Firefox until there are sounds.

I am going to sound like a broken bit of 78 record here, and I do apologise.

Please could we have some optional sounds with Firefox so we can hear when

downloads are complete, when clicking something actually worked and when the

page is fully loaded again.



I grew up with ie and only went to firefox when navigational sounds was

released, since certain ahem, other browsers in later windows decided to not

go to sounds.

There has been a polarisation of views on this list, but I do seriously

feel, from the people who do not use this list and are only interested in

using their computers and are not expert users, I need to act as an advocate

and say that having no sound is very very off-putting to such users.

Thank you and have a safe trip home...

If you are using Firefox 56 or earlier then look for navigational sounds in the add ons manager search box.
It is simply a matter of adding it to the add ons.
Its just like Ublock origin and all the others you can get for ad blocking. it works very well except on the latest versions of firefox.

Re: CHM, a.k.a. Microsoft Help files

The writer said he is using NVDA, I didn't speak about JAWS.  I didn't use the laptop layout in JAWS and you are giving the laptop command.  In JAWS, the desktop command to click the mouse is the same as in NVDA, numpad asterisk or star, whichever you want to call it.

Hi Gene!

That is a key command for JAWS is to press:

JAWS Key+8 on the top number row. That is for a left mouse click.

The laptop commands for the mouse for NVDA, are the following:

Left Click:

NVDA+Left Bracket.

Left Mouse click and lock:

NVDA+CTRL+Left Bracket.

Right Mouse Click:

NVDA+Right Bracket.

Right mouse lock:

NVDA+Ctrl+Right Bracket.

The laptop command for routing the mouse pointer to the review cursor is:

NVDA+Shift+M as in Mary.

Those are the laptop commands for using the mouse with NVDA. The others with number 8 and so on, are the laptop commands for using the mouse with JAWS.

Hope that helps.

NVDA key plus numpad 8 doesn't move the mouse nor does it perform a left click.

Using the desktop layout, nvda key plus key numpad slash moves the cursor to the position of the review cursor or the object navigator, depending on what means of navigation you are using.  Just numpad slash  by itself performs a left click.

 

I don't use the laptop layout and I don't know the commands.

Hi Tonea

I found a chm file on my machine and opened it.  On entry, I was placed in the Contents list and used arrow keys to traverse it.  When I found a topic I wanted help on I pressed f6.  This moved me to the help topic details.  I used arrow keys to move around the help topic window. From here I switched into screen review mode and located the following gbuttons

Hide Print Options Search Contents Favorites       

 

I could access these buttons via review cursor then use NVDA +Numpad 8 to  move the mouse pointer , then activated button using numpad 8 to simulate a mouse click.  I also found that alt+o opens a context menu containing the following:

Hide Tabs

Back

Forward

Home

Stop

Refresh

Internet Options...

Print...   

 

Some of these are probably equivalent to the header items you  could not access.  Alt+s also opened up the search function which was also accessible.

Subject: [nvda] CHM, a.k.a. Microsoft Help files

 

A while back, I asked for help with making my documentation equal access to NVDA users. James Austin And Cearbhall O’Meadhra both answered my call and have been very patient in helping me.

 

Microsoft help files end in a CHM extension. Just a refresher: this format generates a window with the following buttons along the top: Hide, Back, Forward, Home, Print, and Options. Below the button bar, there is a left-hand side that contains three tabs: Content, Search, and Favorites. In the Contents tab, there is an organizational tree that allows you to look at the page names and navigate directly to the page you want. On the right hand side, there is the content window. It displays the header of the page and any navigation buttons relating to the page, such as Previous, Top, and Next. Below the header is the content for the page.

 

On the first run through, the content window was blank. I contacted my software’s maker and they had me make some changes. I’m not using Word, but just as Word can save as a single document or PDF or web page, this software can save as an entire web site, a CHM help file, or a PDF. I had applied something they call a skin to give the entire set of pages the same look and feel as the software it is supporting. These guys told me to remove the skin. According to them, all that would remain is Microsoft’s CHM frame and my pages within it.

 

On the second run through, the content window was there, but the content header (with the buttons that appear next to it) was not visible to NVDA. This told me that most of the problem was in the skin. I contacted the software maker since the skin was from one of their templates.

 

I’m quoting their response: The most likely cause there is a non-scrolling header, where the topic header stays in the same place and the topic content scrolls in a box below it. If the screen reader is old/poorly programmed/dumb then it is quite possible that it wouldn't be able to handle that. End quote.

 

Well, on behalf of everyone here, I was offended. I may not yet have access to NVDA but I know everyone here works hard to help it be a really good product. I’ve gone back to my files and, as a sighted user, I can’t see any header that stays in the same place. I will be contacting them about that and pushing them to nail down this problem and also to help me get a skin that doesn’t make the files invisible to screen readers.

 

However, I also have to be respectful and ask if anyone knows of a CHM file that is completely readable to NVDA? Is any of this problem an issue with the NVDA software? Or, is it a known problem with CHM that users of other screen readers also experience?

 

Thank you for your understanding,

 

Tonea Morrow

 


No sound report in progress bar in Firefox58 beta

For the sake of testing I installed the Firefox 58 beta into my 32-bit Windows 10 machine. However, I noticed when downloading files nvda does not announces the progress bar in the background after hitting Control plus J I am currently using the latest master snapshot of nvda to compare.

Re: CHM, a.k.a. Microsoft Help files

David Moore
 

Hi Gene!

That is a key command for JAWS is to press:

JAWS Key+8 on the top number row. That is for a left mouse click.

The laptop commands for the mouse for NVDA, are the following:

Left Click:

NVDA+Left Bracket.

Left Mouse click and lock:

NVDA+CTRL+Left Bracket.

Right Mouse Click:

NVDA+Right Bracket.

Right mouse lock:

NVDA+Ctrl+Right Bracket.

The laptop command for routing the mouse pointer to the review cursor is:

NVDA+Shift+M as in Mary.

Those are the laptop commands for using the mouse with NVDA. The others with number 8 and so on, are the laptop commands for using the mouse with JAWS.

Hope that helps.

David Moore.

NVDA key plus numpad 8 doesn't move the mouse nor does it perform a left click.

Using the desktop layout, nvda key plus key numpad slash moves the cursor to the position of the review cursor or the object navigator, depending on what means of navigation you are using.  Just numpad slash  by itself performs a left click.

 

I don't use the laptop layout and I don't know the commands.

Hi Tonea

I found a chm file on my machine and opened it.  On entry, I was placed in the Contents list and used arrow keys to traverse it.  When I found a topic I wanted help on I pressed f6.  This moved me to the help topic details.  I used arrow keys to move around the help topic window. From here I switched into screen review mode and located the following gbuttons

Hide Print Options Search Contents Favorites       

 

I could access these buttons via review cursor then use NVDA +Numpad 8 to  move the mouse pointer , then activated button using numpad 8 to simulate a mouse click.  I also found that alt+o opens a context menu containing the following:

Hide Tabs

Back

Forward

Home

Stop

Refresh

Internet Options...

Print...   

 

Some of these are probably equivalent to the header items you  could not access.  Alt+s also opened up the search function which was also accessible.

A while back, I asked for help with making my documentation equal access to NVDA users. James Austin And Cearbhall O’Meadhra both answered my call and have been very patient in helping me.

 

Microsoft help files end in a CHM extension. Just a refresher: this format generates a window with the following buttons along the top: Hide, Back, Forward, Home, Print, and Options. Below the button bar, there is a left-hand side that contains three tabs: Content, Search, and Favorites. In the Contents tab, there is an organizational tree that allows you to look at the page names and navigate directly to the page you want. On the right hand side, there is the content window. It displays the header of the page and any navigation buttons relating to the page, such as Previous, Top, and Next. Below the header is the content for the page.

 

On the first run through, the content window was blank. I contacted my software’s maker and they had me make some changes. I’m not using Word, but just as Word can save as a single document or PDF or web page, this software can save as an entire web site, a CHM help file, or a PDF. I had applied something they call a skin to give the entire set of pages the same look and feel as the software it is supporting. These guys told me to remove the skin. According to them, all that would remain is Microsoft’s CHM frame and my pages within it.

 

On the second run through, the content window was there, but the content header (with the buttons that appear next to it) was not visible to NVDA. This told me that most of the problem was in the skin. I contacted the software maker since the skin was from one of their templates.

 

I’m quoting their response: The most likely cause there is a non-scrolling header, where the topic header stays in the same place and the topic content scrolls in a box below it. If the screen reader is old/poorly programmed/dumb then it is quite possible that it wouldn't be able to handle that. End quote.

 

Well, on behalf of everyone here, I was offended. I may not yet have access to NVDA but I know everyone here works hard to help it be a really good product. I’ve gone back to my files and, as a sighted user, I can’t see any header that stays in the same place. I will be contacting them about that and pushing them to nail down this problem and also to help me get a skin that doesn’t make the files invisible to screen readers.

 

However, I also have to be respectful and ask if anyone knows of a CHM file that is completely readable to NVDA? Is any of this problem an issue with the NVDA software? Or, is it a known problem with CHM that users of other screen readers also experience?

 

Thank you for your understanding,

by chance is there any plans for a nvda zello addon that would you to 1.

access anhy pending auth requests you may have? 2. see if there is a new

version of zello availlable?

 

If there is no such addon in development how would one who uses nvda

check zello for windows to see if there is a new version or pending auth

requests?
