Yes f123 has ben added to the chrome web store, but you have to register it every single time you launch chrome. I’ve disabled it for now.

Funny though, I always use the mobile site too, and it works well, and I sent a link to my sighted brother to have him look at the picture to see if this was our cousin, and he said the link I sent him gave him a page that was messed up on his computer.  He said it was a page for a person with that name, but he could not make sense of it.

 

So maybe the mobile site is not good for people not using a screenreader.

Hi guys!

The mobile site of Facebook,

m.facebook.com

works the very best in IE 11

That is the only site I use in IE LOL! I like it better than Firefox, Even.

I have tried using Chrome and Edge for using the mobile site, and it is a lot different.

It is tricky LOL!

Have a great one, guys!

Re: why is thunderbird marking all new messages as read?

There is an add on, I don't recall if it’s a Thunderbird add on or an NVDA add on, that makes rearranging columns reasonable.  I don't use Thunderbird and I don't know how you do it with the add on but its supposed to be easy or not difficult.

I used to find it annoying that Skype took control of inputs and outputs every time I ran it and then forgot to put stuff back when you had finished. As I mostly use line level this was really annoying.
I seldom use Skype these days. many people I know tend to use their mobile for Skype now to leave their desktop unpoluted, so to speak!

hi, i'm afraid you have had the same problem as I have had.
I'm using windows 10 64 bit and skype the last version.
but when someone cals me, skype keeps ringing also when I've already answered the call.

when I hang up, skype keeps ringing!!!
the only way to stop it is in the taskmanager or reboot my computer!
what to do to solve this problem:
1 now you have installed an older version.
when you try to log in, skype geves you the message can not connect.
what to do,
go in skype in the menu, by pressing alt.
go to help
and there search for look for new version or such.
download and install that new version.
be carefull, there are checkboxes you have to uncheck, else there is a change in all of your using browsers, your homepage will be changed etc.
so it's better to uncheck that checkboxes.
with the new version, you can log in as usual.
when you've done, close skype.
now take your older version of skype.
now you install that older version, without remove the new version!!!!!
the skype installer tells you that the version you ar installing an older version is.
continu anyway?
it is yes.
remember, leave that older version somewhere in the download folder.
you will definitely need that in the future, I explain why.
skype will now start and log in normally!
and now with the older version that has nothing to do with.
you have to save the installation file, because it can go well for months but then suddenly, he can no longer log in.
then do the same trick again.
then it works again.

hope this helps

It was my understanding that NVDA doesn't support Edge at all right now. Am I wrong?


Re: PDF t9 Word keeping footnotes

Jonathan COHN
 

Hello,

Yes either Daisy, NIMAS or ePub is more likely to have appropriate markup for footnotes. I believe most textbooks in the US are supposed to be available in the NIMAS accessible format.  The Braille Blaster program can convert NIMAS files directly into Braille documents. You can read a bit more about NIMAS at:
http://aem.cast.org/creating/national-instructional-materials-accessibility-standard-nimas.html
The Daisy and ePub standards are now pretty much merged, and since the Edge browser will act as a ePub reader, that might work for reviewing your documents if you can get them in that format. I believe that PDF documents that conform to PDF-UA should also have navigable footnotes. The problem with pdf is that it was initially designed to provide different printers with the ability to produce the same page output no matter the printer and accessibility needs were only added later when the US Government started supplying documents and forms in PDF.

Best Wishes,

Jonathan Cohn

I am using a Focus 40. You will have to install the Freedom Scientific drivers.

Hi,

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before and I'm rehashing it, but a
friend of mine was curious if NVDA worked with the Focus40? Does it bring up
a list of displays to choose from and how well does it work with Braille
displays if anyone here has this knowledge, I'd really appreciate info for
my friend? Thanks and again, sorry for bringing this up again.
