NVDA and SecureCRT or other ssh clients for Windows

Christian Schoepplein
 

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

Hi, I use the same versions of Windows, NVDA and Firefox and don't have this problem.
Do you get this issue in each webpage, or just in some of them?
Have you tried to restart Firefox and NVDA with all add-ons disabled?
This may help to find out what's causing it.

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.

Hello Robert,

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.

Does Text Aloud just read or does it actually create its own recording of what is being read, allowing you to have a document recorded while using your computer for other things?

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

Re: text aloud reader

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 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.

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

Rui Fontes
 

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...

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.

I just set chrome as my default browser now. I just played with edge a bit more. Yes, I agree that chrome is a bit faster than edge. Edge is getting good.

NVDA works great with Edge, and if you press alt+X on a page, you can down arrow and enter on read out loud, and the Microsoft voice you have set will read the page, and you can do this by getting the page in reading mode first, where all the clutter is gone. It is really getting good, but I still think Chrome is a bit faster. Chrome is my default.

Take care, Rosemarie! I love to see you on the lists!

Hi everyone,

I just recently started using NDA and using the tutorial produced by Joseph Lee, and am on part 5 of it now.  I have discovered a few things I would like to ask about. 

First of all, from other users perspective, what is the best web browser to use with NDA?  I know it supports all 3 major browsers, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge, which the tutorial demonstrated all 3, actually 4, as Google Chrome is also supported but wasn’t demonstrated in the tutorial.  I noticed when using Firefox, when a link is encountered, it says Clickable, where Internet Explorer does not.  I haven’t been to a lot of sights but I notice on one sight, www.komando.com where some text under the headings also say Clickable, even though they are not links.  What’s going on here?

Also, how does one navigate FaceBook through all those links at the top of the pages, like Notifications, Friend Requests and all those top notifications?  It is my understanding that there are hot keys in Facebook that can be used.  My wife, who uses Jaws uses the mobile site, m.facebook.com.  I’d like to use the regular FB so I don’t miss out, since I’m used to that one, and on my iPhone as well.

 

Also, in another NVDA matter, I often hear it say, Ping when starting and I have to hit Windows M for the desktop, or when opening messages in Windows Live Mail or when browsing web sites.  Any idea what that is supposed to mean?

Hi,

 

I don't know if there's really a best browser. I mostly use internet explorer but if some sites don't work well with that browser, I'll either use waterfox which is another browser or chrome. I think it's just a matter of preference. You just have to find out what works best for you.

Hi everyone,

I just recently started using NDA and using the tutorial produced by Joseph Lee, and am on part 5 of it now.  I have discovered a few things I would like to ask about. 

First of all, from other users perspective, what is the best web browser to use with NDA?  I know it supports all 3 major browsers, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge, which the tutorial demonstrated all 3, actually 4, as Google Chrome is also supported but wasn’t demonstrated in the tutorial.  I noticed when using Firefox, when a link is encountered, it says Clickable, where Internet Explorer does not.  I haven’t been to a lot of sights but I notice on one sight, www.komando.com where some text under the headings also say Clickable, even though they are not links.  What’s going on here?

Also, how does one navigate FaceBook through all those links at the top of the pages, like Notifications, Friend Requests and all those top notifications?  It is my understanding that there are hot keys in Facebook that can be used.  My wife, who uses Jaws uses the mobile site, m.facebook.com.  I’d like to use the regular FB so I don’t miss out, since I’m used to that one, and on my iPhone as well.

 

Also, in another NVDA matter, I often hear it say, Ping when starting and I have to hit Windows M for the desktop, or when opening messages in Windows Live Mail or when browsing web sites.  Any idea what that is supposed to mean?

Re: NVDACon 2018 audio

 

Not all of them, quite a few are, but we are still missing a few of them.

The majority are, one of the lightning talks and a few topics I wanted to listen to but the main stuff is up.
