Re: Using NVDA with a Twitter Account

I use Chicken Nugget on my Windows machine and it works great with NVDA. Usually the follow/unfollow commands are on the user details or profile screen, so find that screen in TW Blue and you should be able to find the buttons for following.

It's Alt+Win+Shift+S and it's called 'Open the User Action Menu' - once that dialogue's open, you can tab around to find the options to follow, unfollow, block etc.

Re: Call me stupid but..

 

There is i drive though I haven

't tried it.

There is also expanddrive which costs but is supposed to interface with the cloud and you can store and download readily without actually storing on your system.

Your cloud drives are network drives thats costing 75 bucks though still its a thought.

As for google.

Yeah it crashes a lot and has that stupid window popping up.

Worse when I updated my dad's system after a fresh install, and after an unsuccessfull login attempt it decided that I was a hacker, that my system was suspect and then windows refused to do anything at all.

Eventually after changing passwords, and then logging in on a brouser on a different system I was able to fix that, followed by another reformat to get windows to work again, then it worked.

But it certainly is flakey as hell.

I was able to set where things went and its interface was accessible but to be honest, its no longer something I'd use.

I am tempted by 1 drive.

The only reason I am tempted is if I ever get an office 365 sub, its not happening any time soon but the sub, the skype minutes, and the space does interest me a deal.

I drive does interest me but it doesn't support expandrive and I have yet to decide if I will buy that for myself.

I don'

't put to much stuff to the cloud, some backups of programs I can't get right now, a few projects but not many now days, some backups of password protected files favorites, and personal junk, and well a few other odds and ends, most stuff is still on external disk though.

JAWS is reading lists quite happily.

 

Any thoughts?

Re: open live writer is not accessible yet.

 

The fact its opensource means we may have a chance of making it accessible.

Depending what is needed if someone on here can and has time a module could be written for it.

The easiest way for the program itself would be if we got nvda controler to be in it some how.

Ofcause if its treating things like web pages, you would only have to use standard forms for things as long as all the links and buttons are labeled and we have fields then well.

It also depends on how its written, being this is a git thing maybe someone on here could upload something to the project.

We could also write an addon or a config for nvda and put it somewhere.

Re: open live writer is not accessible yet.

Jackie
 

Robert, first, I commend your efforts in terms of trying to make Open
Live Writer accessible, just because I commend accessibility efforts
in general. Might I be forgiven, however, for asking why you or anyone
else for that matter would want a big clunky piece of desktop software
when there's a simple solution called Markdown? Markdown is a way to
format text & turn it into html markup language. Examples include:
# (number signs) for each heading level of text, ie,
## this is a 2nd level heading ##
### this is a 3rd level heading

The closing # signs are optional.

Asterisks for bulleted lists, ie,
* 1st list item;
* 2nd list item
etc.
Numbers for numbered list items, ie,
1) number 1
2) number 2

Bold text looks like *bold* or **bold** for greater emphasis. Under
lined text is _underlined_, ie, surrounded by the underscore.

That's just a small sampling, but a quick google for markdown tutorial
will give you a slew of results that could keep you reading for far
longer than either you would have time for or that would be necessary.
It's pretty easy.

There are plugins, for example, in WordPress, that allow markdown
formatting. It can also be enabled in Drupal's CK Editor. A simple
text editor called Write Monkey, available from
http://writemonkey.com/
supports exports of its documents to various flavors of Markdown. But
any text editor can create the Markdown formatted document. You don't
even have to have an internet connection.

My comments are not meant to be disrespectful. Quite the contrary, in
fact. I've fought w/my share of software in my day, & I'm happy to do
so & even make screenreader access solutions for it if I must. But
what I've learned is that if you don't have to do it, don't. &
w/Markdown, the truth is you just don't have to fight w/all the
toolbars & selecting text, making certain you've got it all selected,
etc, which can be a real pain across multiple lines. If this isn't
something you've heard of before, you might wish to take the time to
have a look. The learning time is wel under an hour, unless your
document contains complex formatting, but even w/footnotes, endnotes,
links, etc, it's still not that difficult.

It might just be something you'd find worthwhile in your writing toolbox.

I'm not understanding what the mix paste dialog has to do with my

However, I think this whole discussion is missing the fundamental point
that
in Soundforge 12.5, you really can't even get to square one in terms of
use.

Opening a file and selecting a piece of it to delete or move is
fundamental
to most tasks. It doesn't work in NVDA. Keeping your place in a file is
absolutely necessary in order to perform a multitude of tasks in sound
editing.
Stability of your location in NVDA doesn't exist right now.

Soundforge 10 does work in Jaws, Cobra and Window-Eyes. Soundforge 12.5
does work in Jaws with scripts. If I'm going to be a serious NVDA user,
I
need it to work in NVDA. I have no doubt this is equally true for the
many
other blind Soundforge users out there, and there are a lot of them.

Yes, I am told that Jaws works well with the Version 12 series. Brian
Hartgen, I believe, has a comprehensive set of Jaws scripts and

Cobra had its own scripts for Soundforge 9 and 10, but 12 is new and
Baum had developed no

Soundforge has always required scripting and I sincerely doubt one can

I'm using Goldwave here, but obviously the program you are using has
a chequered career and has been written by lots of different folk
over the years, I'd not be surprised if accessibility is quite low on
their
radar.
We
would normally say, if you are a paying customer and it used to work

that you should be able to have a word with them about changes like

I think the general advice is to contact them, and then if they seem

Subject: [nvda] Sound Forge 12.5


Hello:

As some will know, Magix now owns and updates Sound Forge. The
most recent release is 12.5.

This version is not working very well at all with NVDA. Even the
simplest of activities, highlighting a segment of audio and getting
it
to
play back is not working for me. Also, my position in a sound file
tends
to jump around in ways I don't understand. Suddenly, I might find
myself
2-3 minutes into a file for no reason at all.

Anybody know of a fix for this?

Chris

Re: NVDA and Firefox

Gene
 

You're probably doing something wrong.  Changes in Firefox should have nothing to do with reading menus and dialogs in general. 
 
Use this procedure, which was the procedure before the changes to the program.
New major steps start on new lines.
Use the command control shift b to open the library window dealing with book marks.
Open the menus with alt.
Right arrow to import and backup. 
Down arrow through the menu to the item that matches what you want to do.  Press enter and work through the wizard. 
If you have questions, ask here.
 
When you are finished, close the window and return to the main window with alt f4.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and Firefox

I am finding that the latest version of NVDA and latest version of
Firefox has some issues.
After installing Firefox I follow the directions to import bookmarks
from another browser and NVDA will not read the listed option to import
bookmarks.  Sighted help says the import option is there but as I
indicated you can't get to it with NVDA.  Anyone else seeing this
problem or am I doing something wrong.
