Hi Tyler,
Thanks for the information. I, too, was completely unaware of this
configurable option, and had to always toggle to no progress bar
updates to be able to efficiently use the Teamtalk program.
At some point in time, I guess I will also install the NVDA add-on for
Teamtalk too...
Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I'm working with a few friends on a portal that seeks to provide
mentorship for people with disabilities who may not have the resources
to find good mentors. here's some more information about this.

The Next Billion is an organization that connects people with
disabilities with industry leaders, who can support them
professionally with the goal of improving diversity and accessibility
in the global community. Through our platform, we connect mentees
(people with disabilities) with a mentor (industry leader) that can
help guide and foster them to achieve their professional goals – based
on their field of expertise, relationship with their particular
disability and their personal experience. We will be launching our
platform in October 2016 and are looking for advisors, mentors,
partners or organizations who would be interested in working with us.
We are also taking pre-signups for mentees and mentors, who would be
the first ones to try out the platform at launch.

We already have several mentors from companies such as Microsoft,
Google, Facebook, and some other financial firms, as well as tie-ups
with universities such as Stanford. If you are interested either as a
mentee or a mentor, please reach out to me personally off the list.

Best,

Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

Bhavya shah
 

Afrim,
As a personal advice, in case that is a possible alternative, I never
like PDF files much anyways, with both NVDA and JAWS. Thus, I am
converting all my school textbook PDF files into Word, using what is
called the Oxillion Document Converter, which you will readily find
via a quick google search.
Do try and persist to be able to access the material in its original
format itself, that is PDF, if you wish to, but as the last resort,
bear in mind that a Word conversion trick would probably suffice.
Thanks.

Hello everyone,
I have seriously started using NVDA, and this time is more serious than
other times, because I have upgraded to windows 10, and it works very
well,
and I do mean very very well. One of my biggest issues I'm currently
facing
is reading pdf documents with NVDA. On the adobe reader, or adobe acrobat
reader, NVDA reads absolutely nothing. I have to work everyday with those
types of documents because my university professors provide me with
lectures
or books in pdf format, but I cannot access them.
So, could somebody help me with this problem because it is very important
to
me. Every answer is appreciated.

Re: embedded object in Firefox

Your question can be answered for specific sites but there is no general answer.  Someone may or may not be able to use the site and explain how.  The site may or may not be useable with other screen-readers.  Some Flash players are accessible and some are not.  Some can be made to work, though not properly accessible.

It looks as if the BorrowBox service is limited to the British Commonwealth. Since your own efforts have shown that you cannot access the site that I have given, I must assume that it is not set up in any library in the United States yet.

 

I am anxious that we don’t lose sight of the real query that I have raised which is the accessibility of embedded objects in Firefox with the NVDA screen reader. I have illustrated the situation in my email. It would be useful if I could provide a live example of the problem for members of the list but since the web links don’t seem to be yielding the example that I have raised, I hope my details will explain it enough for list members to respond.

It appears to me that Borrow Box is not used in the way you are using it in the United States.  I did a search for borrow box and found nothing in the roughly eight results I looked at that is in The United States.  I found something about Borrow Box and Apple or ITunes, I'm not sure, but I doubt that is what you have in mind.  I didn't go to the site to check.  people may investigate the sites they find or try the link you gave.  But it may not be able to be investigated from The united States.

So, let me explain that the purpose of the site reference was to enable members of the list to try out the problem on a BorrowBox site that  they can access. I am grateful to you for pointing out the regional limitations which I had not thought of.

 

I can see that there are many library sites that use BorrowBox in the USA. I know there are others in Australia. So, I wonder if members Google the words “BorrowBox library” from their own locations would they find a site that they can access?

 

Any library that comes up will do for the purposes of demonstration.

 

I am particularly concerned that we hear from list users who have experience of the difficulty with embedded objects in Firefox so that I can find a solution to my problem with hearing the sample audio on this web site.

 

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Gene,

 

I see that the link spreads over two lines and is broken. Could you remove the carriage return that is breaking the link and try again?

 

Alternatively, you might like to try this link which does still work for me:

http://library.bolindadigital.com/southdublinBorrowBox

 

It is a link to the original test site and you might be able to bring it up. Ignore the sign in links as you cannot sign in but you can preview the books without being signed in.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

If the link is correct, it may be restricted to certain countries.  I can not go to a page by following the link.

Hi,

I found a problem in Firefox when attempting to listen to a sample of an
audio book in the BorrowBox library system. I don't know if this is an NVDA
problem or exclusively a Firefox Flash Player issue. or if Bolinda need to
do something with their Java script. I should mention that the sighted user
has no problem playing the audio sample using a mouse.

I am using Windows 10,, NVDA 2016.1 and Firefox46.1 on a desktop PC.

If List members would like to see the problem for themselves I recommend the
following url:
https://fe.bolindadigital.com/wldcs_bol_fo/b2i/productOverview.html?b2bSite=
4834&browseItemId=366096&fromPage=1
It is not necessary to sign in to sample the reading of a title.

Here is a typical audio book display:

--Start of clip -----------------------
link graphic Railway Viaduct
embedded object unavailable (this should say "Preview" but doesn't!)
Link Reserve
On Loan, Available on 22/05/16
Link Railway Viaduct
Link Edward Marston
Read by Sam Dastor
Crime & Thriller, Historical Fiction
eAudiobook - Unabridged
---end of clip ------------------

The player for the audio sample is activated by an "embedded object" that is
flagged by NVDA as "not being available". The BorrowBox help page advises
that Adobe flash must be active to enable audio sampling of each title. I
have Adobe flash installed and active. For example, I can play any song in
YouTube in Firefox without any problem.

After many weeks of failing to play the preview, I found the following
workaround using NVDA:

From the top of the web page select eAudio if not already selected. Then
press "g" to find a book title. If the next   object after pressing
down-arrow once is "embedded Object" then you have an audio book and we can
start.

Here is the full sequence of steps:
1. Press G for the graphic of the book title;
2. Press down-arrow once to the embedded object. You should hear "Embedded
Object not available";
3. Press NVDA + numpad Enter to activate the embedded object. You should
hear "Embedded Object Unavailable Activate";
4. Press right arrow once. You should hear ""Space";
5. Press the space bar  to start and stop the sample audio of the narrator
speaking.

If pressing the space bar does not act as a toggle and the enter key does
not do the job either:
6. Press right arrow once;
7. Press space bar or main keyboard enter to play and stop playing the audio
sample.

Can anyone advise what to do about this?
A. Is it an NVDA problem?
B. Is it a Firefox problem?
c. Is it a BorrowBox problem for the developer Bolinda to see to?


All the best,

Cearbhall

There's an nvda add on for this that fixes this problem.

Gene,

 

It looks as if the BorrowBox service is limited to the British Commonwealth. Since your own efforts have shown that you cannot access the site that I have given, I must assume that it is not set up in any library in the United States yet.

 

I am anxious that we don’t lose sight of the real query that I have raised which is the accessibility of embedded objects in Firefox with the NVDA screen reader. I have illustrated the situation in my email. It would be useful if I could provide a live example of the problem for members of the list but since the web links don’t seem to be yielding the example that I have raised, I hope my details will explain it enough for list members to respond.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

It appears to me that Borrow Box is not used in the way you are using it in the United States.  I did a search for borrow box and found nothing in the roughly eight results I looked at that is in The United States.  I found something about Borrow Box and Apple or ITunes, I'm not sure, but I doubt that is what you have in mind.  I didn't go to the site to check.  people may investigate the sites they find or try the link you gave.  But it may not be able to be investigated from The united States.
