Re: [ChoicescriptIDE/main] Updates (and other notifications) are screen-reader friendly (#40)

 

Yes Choice script, as in choice of games. I wrote the developer ages ago asking if he could look into screen reader access. At the moment I am only testing with NVDA. I'm a Choice of games writer though not a programmer so if anyone has any ideas he would love feedback directly. Either on the thread or similar.


Using VLC media player with NVDA

Christopher Bartlett
 

Has anyone any experience using the VLC media player with NVDA?  I've just installed it in order to take advantage of its ability to use a Chromecast, and, while I've gotten it to work, I'm wondering if anone has done a good tutorial for VLC, either with NVDA, or just in general.
Thanks.

Hello,

There are three problems I am having with NVDA not reading window
information:


I don’t know if this is a Windows problem or NVDA problem, but NVDA is
only reading 1 window when I press alt+tab several times. I press alt+tab
and NVDA does not say anything. Sometimes a restart of NVDA works, but
not
always. It just started doing this last month.



Also, in the last month, NVDA has started not to read the folder View in
Windows explorer for some reason. I open up my documents or downloads and
NVDA just says Explorer”. I can tab and get to the Tree view and other
buttons, but the folder view is completely silent. I have turned off
indexing and other things that may slow down Windows Explorer, but
nothing
seems to work. I have the same problems in the open and save dialogues in
applications as well. The folder View does not work or freezes. I know
something is there, because if I hit enter in the blank space, the folder
or file opens. Also, they are there visually. Often when I restart NVDA,
the folder view will read right as NVDA is turning off,, then for a very
short time while NVDA is just restarted. But very quickly, the folder
view
becomes silent again.



NVDA also does not always enter the start menu focus when the Windows key
is pressed. For example, when typing this email, I press start and NVDA
does not say anything. I see the start menu pop up, but pressing arrow
keys
don’t do anything. If I am in an editable window, I can type and the
search
box in the start menu will populate, but if I am in a brows window, then
NVDA thinks I am pressing navigation keys and jumps me around the page I
was on.



These problems all happen at random times and I can’t figure out what
triggers them. They happen enough that they are really hurting my
productivity at work and I purchased another computer just because these
problems were so pervasive.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix these three problems?

Thank you,

Re: How to silence NVDA when Cortana speaks?

Hi. The only way I know of is the control key unless I'm just
shutting my laptop off then I c have the hotkey set for Cortana so
just shut off all screen readers, bring up Cortana with the hotkey and
have it shut down that way.

Re: a newcomer, who is seemingly lost

 

What I do is say I want to use another card for say windows, or something.

1.  plugin card, everything switches over.

2.  switch nvda to the card I want.

3.  switch apps I want on one card to whatever card.

Usually this is with teamtalk.

Now, before I do the removal I switch all apps including nvda to the sound mapper or primary driver.

Then I remove the other card.

Technically most apps should detect and switch back but nvda doesn't and teamtalk doesn't.

I have had it where my brother set his earphones as a default card.

Take them out, and the sounds stop working.

I just can't plug a particular device back in to switch them back.

I need to switch the headphones back in, to switch default back to the sound card that is in the system.

Sadly windows can from time to time switch cards depending what is loaded first.

You just have to remember what was what.

Disabling the card will work but what if you need it again.

My cards are usb so I only plug them in when I need them.

III don't see why NVDA used another sound card. Did you, at some time, tell JAWS to use a specific sound card, different than the one it was using? If so, that explains the problem. Ordinarily, everything should use the default sound card unless instructed to do otherwise. You can use two sound cards, a lot of blind people do, including me, at times. Just as with JAWS, you can tell NVDA to use whichever soundcard you want it to use.

Since the person hasn't responded who wrote about the problem, his
screen name is The Wolf, I'll say that this problem may or may not
be what I thought it likely was but here is something you can try if
you are currently running JAWS 2018. It is a message he sent the
list two or three weeks ago. You can have as many copies of JAWS on
your machine as you wish so you can try this and see if it solves
the problem. If not, you can try other things others have
suggested. I'm not optimistic about this trial and error method but
you never know. But doing what is discussed in the below quoted
message is easy and if it solves the problem, you can just leave two
copies of JAWS on your machine. I think that if you install another
copy of JAWS, you will have to create a short cut command such as
control j for whatever version you want to be able to run in that
way. I believe that if you have a current shortcut, it will be
removed but you will have to check about that.
Also, you may have to reset the run before boot up and whatever
other commands there are that are relevant. But I wouldn't have
JAWS 2018 run for now. I wouldn't run it either during testing.
Just have JAWS 18 run. Then see if you can run NVDA. Try running
the NVDA.exe file while JAWS 18 is running. If it doesn't run, you
can see if there is an error message. If it runs, you will either
have two screen-readers running at once or the NVDA installer will
be smart enough to unload JAWS when the talking installer is ready
to talk.
The message is below my signature.

That may be a useless procedure if the problem is what I think it is
and it may not be a good idea in general for this reason:
How far back should you go? System restore only saves restore points
for perhaps two or three months. Unless the person has used a
different version of JAWS during that time, going back won't help if
the problem is what I suspect it is. If it isn't. you could, of
course, go back using System Restore to an earlier and earlier time,
but without knowing what the problem is and since there was no time
at which NVDA was known to run, this is not necessarily going to
help anything.
And if it does solve the problem, and if the problem is what I think
it is, how many changes have been made to the machine since then in
programs and settings that will have to be done over? Again, I
would not do this or anything, until seeing if the person who
appears to have had the same problem responds.

It's clear that the person has tried to run the exe file and the
talking
installer doesn't talk. Since the talking installer is actually the
portable version of NVDA, this problem is related to the other problem.
Something is keeping NVDA from running. It's not that the talking
installer
just doesn't talk, the portable version of NVDA isn't running, just
as the
installed version isn't.

Hi Chet





NVDA has a talking installer. After you have downloaded nvda to your
computer and located the file say nvda 2017.4 then you click or
press the
enter key on the file. It may come up with a security message if it
does go
to the run button i think it isthen press the enter key on it.




NVDA should start up with a musical type of tune and the first part
is the
documentation you can arrown down and up this section to read after
that tab
to a check box then press the space bar to agree to it. Tab again it
will
then give you 3 options. one to install to your pc, the second to
make a
portable copy for a usb stick and the third to run as a temporary
copy. Most
people would choose the first option and install it to your computer.




Just follow the directions to install it. If a UAC screen comes up
say yes
to it the shortcut key is I think alt key + Y or you can simply tab
to itand
say yes. it should then keep on stalling to your pc and is very quick.




When it gets installed if you are using the desktop version same for
laptop
use the alt + ctrl + letter N to start your copy of nvda

to get into the preferences of nvda use the nvda key + letter N then
arrow
to the different sections like the user manual under the help
section etc

to turn off nvda use the nvda key +letter Q




Where i refer to the nvda key this is a modifier key and can be the
insrt
key the extended insert key or the capslock key.




Depending which one you choose say to turn off nvda for example
would be the
insert key + letter Q







By the way which operating system are you using as support for xp
and vista
was dropped and the latest version of nvda for that is nvda 2017.3




If you have a windows 7 machine and up it doesnot matter but go for the
latest nvda.NVDA will work on 8 and 10 also.

Hello,
I am a newcomer to this list. I'm Chet Smalley, I live in the
commonwealth
of Pennsylvania.
I have tried, repeatedly, to install NVDA.
Today I uninstalled JAWS 2018 completely thinking that perhaps its
presence had been the preventing force, heretofore.
I then installed the latest version of NVDA (at least I believe I
did),
and received no response from the program, at all.
Then, I reinstalled JAWS 2018, and then unloaded it from memory and
launched NVDA.
At that juncture, NVDA was apparently working because I could no
longer
navigate using the numpad instead of the traditional arrow keys, but
the
voice I was hearing was that of eloquence, not the default voice that I
believe comes with NVDA.
In addition to installing NVDA today, I also installed the drivers
and the
voices for some alternative voices, but again, these don't appear to be
functional, at all.
So what is wrong?
My thought is that my anti virus program, AVG, is interfering to one
degree or another; but the most significant problem is, that absent
JAWS and
its speech engine, NVDA does not work.
One other thing:
I was under the impression that NVDA was equipped with a talking
installer. I did not find anyway to load that, nor to benefit from
it, of
course.
Now I just removed JAWS from memory again, and tried to load NVDA,
and
received no response. So I may have been wrong earlier, when I said
that I
was seemingly navigating with NVDA using the traditional arrows
while JAWS
was removed from memory; rather, I suspect JAWS needs to be running
in order
for a semblance of NVDA to appear
I guess my basic question is this:
why won't NVDA run on its own??
In advance, Many thanks.

Regards,
Chet

Hi everyone,

I've been asked by someone about accessible video editing software.  I'm not overly familiar with video editing at all, so wonder if anyone is able to recommend any video editing software please?

Re: a newcomer, who is seemingly lost

Gene
 

III don't see why NVDA used another sound card.  Did you, at some time, tell JAWS to use a specific sound card, different than the one it was using?  If so, that explains the problem.  Ordinarily, everything should use the default sound card unless instructed to do otherwise.  You can use two sound cards, a lot of blind people do, including me, at times.  Just as with JAWS, you can tell NVDA to use whichever soundcard you want it to use.

Well you didn't have to disable sound cards, just select the right 1 for
your default card and there is a button to check.
