Microsoft Access Databases

Jim Homme
 

Hi,

Some people I work with are making a department Microsoft Access database. I get to influence its accessibility. Does anyone know of information I can find on the controls to use and avoid using so that NVDA can work best with the database?

 

Thanks.

 

Jim

No, the equal is needed to assign an integer value to the configuration parameter.
You can test it in the Python console and without equal you'll get a syntax error.

Hi, I don't use the program you're mentioning, just git bash.
Anyway, you may want to see this issue:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/4481

You can try to configure timeout, for example, following these steps:

1. Go to the application where you find issues.
2. Create a new profile for this application (or manual, in case you
don't want it's triggered automatically).
3. Activate it so you can save configuration changes just for this profile.
4. Open the Python console (control+NVDA+z) and type the following
lines (you can paste each line and press Enter):
import config
config.conf["editableText"]["caretMoveTimeout"] = 100
config.conf.save()

(change 100 for a value in milliseconds) and test with different values.

Cheers

Hej,

I need to work via ssh on linux servers in my job. In the past I used
Linux on my workstation, but now I have to use Windows. Now I am
looking for a Windows ssh client which is good to use with NVDA.

The prefered client for my employer is SecureCRT. I've configured
this client by following the steps described here:

https://www.vandyke.com/support/tips/scrnread.html

This setup is working well, only one thing is causing me problems.

When navigating through the output of a command given in the shell
the focus of NVDA is always getting back to the line where the cursor
is located after one second or so. This makes it inpossible to read
through a shell window.

Does anyone know this issue and can it be solved somehow?


I also tested putty and cygwinssh. Cygwinssh seems to work fine, but
it has not that many features. Also I was not able to scrol back in a
shell output. Putty is OK in most cases, but sometimes the focus gets
lost or is shifted for a line or two.

Maybe someone is using SecureCRT also and can help me out with my
little problem, then it will be a good solution for me and my
employer I think.

TIA and all the best from Munich,

Schoepp

This is working with Windows 10 only, isn't it? Unfortunatly I have to use
Win7, Win10 will be rolled out next year maybe :-(.

In the past I used a Linux box with a self installed Debian and a
virtualized Windows 7. That was the perfekt working enviroment for the
tasks I have todo in my daily work. Due to new fu**ing stupid security
policies of my employer I can't use such a setup anymore and so I am
looking for a good replacement. Because also Linux workstations will be
not longer allowed in the near future and everybody shall use Windows,
this new solution has to be a Windows workingstation...

Re: Message in some dialog is not announced when "report object description" is unchecked

bering.p
 

Hi,
Indeed, seen like that, there was no reason to ask the question.
But perhaps, it's only a NVDA choice and that can be adapted (for the window object, IAccessibleObject.accDescription is None)
Thanks anyway.
Cheers.

Paul.

Le 20/06/2018 01:14, Rui Fontes a écrit :
Normal or not, it the way it is...

We can use a small trick to solve that...

The trick is to create a profile triggered by NVDA where this parameter
is checked, and that way is not necessary to hear the description in
other apps...

If you do not know how to create a profile, you can read the User Guide
or ask...

Hi,
Thanks Rui for your reply.
So this means that this parameter should not be unchecked if we want to
hear the questions asked by this type of dialog box.
I don't find it normal.
Cheers.

Paul.

Hello!

Yes, it is normal.

The text inside that window is really classified as the description of
the object, in this case, the window that popups when you try to install
an addon, or the About window of NVDA.

I found that when you uncheck the "Report object descriptions"

Do you think it's normal?

I'm achieving good results with both Windows Subsystem for Linux (running ssh
under the installed Linux distribution - Ubuntu from the Microsoft Store, for
example), and Msys2 from the Git SDK.

A real Linux machine is better, of course, and I have that as well.

NvDACon 2018: meet conference archive

 

Dear NVDA community,

 

On behalf of NVDACon organizing committee, I’m delighted to announce that the archive of this year’s NvDACon is getting ready for the world. Not all sessions are up yet, but at least the open forum, NV Access keynote (speech only), a community promo, and Joseph Lee’s NVDA Tech Support session are up. More sessions will be made available in the next few days.

 

Sessions from this year’s gathering, as well as archives of past conferences, can be found at:

https://www.nvdacon.org/past-conferences#

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Joseph

It looks to me like you have Firefox open  when you are starting NVDA. I believe you generally need to start Mozilla products after the screen reader is running. Firefox versions after 59 enable a AT mode if they see a screen reader running on the system.

I had Text Aloud on an old laptop but not on my current one. If I wanted to record the output of NVDA reading something I would use Audacity (which is free) and you can set it up so that it records the sound coming through the soundcard (what NVDA is saying). That means you can use NVDA to say all and Audacity can record it. I record NVDA doing that and then export the Audacity result as an mp3, and then use Wavepad (which I know, from previous dialogue, you also use) to chop off the initial seconds and the ending seconds as I activate the recording mode and likewise end the recording mode.

I find Audacity / Wavepad a more configurable method than I did using Text Aloud (I can't remember if Text Aloud had user dictionaries, but you do have those with NVDA so you can define pronunciations of certain words if needed ... something I use a lot!)

Hope that helps :)

Re: NVDA stops speaking

Quentin Christensen
 

If you, before encountering the issue (ie before closing mail), restart NVDA with addons disabled - NVDA+q then down arrow to that option and enter.  Does the issue still occur?  If not, that could indicate one of the add-ons is being troublesome.

Either way, perhaps a copy of your log might shed some light on it.  See here for how to get the log: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps and could you perhaps send me a copy to info@... and I'll have a look and see if there is anything in there that might help?

Regards

Quentin.

tab and arrow keys

Craig
 

Hi.

 

Using win10 1803.

NVDA 2018.2.1

Firefox 60.0.2

 

 

I am finding that when on the webpage using the arrow keys and they don’t follow when I use the tab to a link the arrow keys are still in a textual part like a paragraph of the webpage.  Hope this make sense.

 

 

 

So if for example I tabbed to a link and I use the right arrow key it is responding to some part of the text of a paragraph not the link.

 

I tried both screen review and object review modes. Doesn’t make any difference.

 

Thanks

C

 

Cheers Craig

the sublinux system may be a great thing, but unless one is savvy enough to figure out how to find and install it,  it's not going to be very helpful in converting anything.  Linux is a bit of a learning curve if you aren't at all familiar with it  as I have learned  and you don't have anyone  to walk you through it  as you might have with windows or IOS  or even Android.

Why bot use the sublinux system and use say something like

say -f filename.txt -r rate -v voice [if you have any installed] --progress -o filename.aiff

I used  this to convert chapters for a colledge book I was converting for a friend.

Hi!
I love Balabolka!
I have converted many text files into MP3 files, and I listen to them on my MP3 player. I use a portable version, very awesome!

Hi,
 
I also really like TextAloud, but I'm finding that the edit box where text
is typed or pasted isn't at all readable with NVDA. It works great with JAWS
though. Regardless, with version 4 of the program, you press Control+F6 to
create an audio file of the current article.
Another program I like that works great with NVDA and that is free is
Balabolka.
 
Hope this helps.
