Re: NVDA and Firefox

Jonathan COHN
 

Very interesting. I was just talking about this same issue with my brother earlier today.

There was also a recent discussion on the W3C interest group about why local CSS is a good accessibility tool. Though I believe the author said he had to use Safari in order to have a local style sheet that overrode the ones supplied by the web site.

IN terms of your specific problem, I don't believe that NVDA has a graphics labeling function available either in core or in one of the addons.

Re: Microsoft is Killing Skype Classic on September 1 -

Yup. Alt plus pg-dn or pg-up worked anywhere on the machine. All you had to do was enable the hotkeys in Skype options somewhere around the accessibility section and presto.

Now . . . it’s unfortunately not so. Why roll back this function? Who knows.

You have to be in the Skype window for any of the commands to work though. Inconvenient to say the least.

I'm shocked to hear that it ever worked any other way (and I believe what you've said).   That violates virtually every "rule" Windows (any version) ever had about focus and how it determines what process/program gets what keystrokes.  

I believe that JAWS and NVDA both have some mechanism that if you start Skype first (or second through something like fifth or sixth) that there's a keyboard shortcut to throw focus to open program #X on the taskbar.  Were I constantly using Skype under the current circumstances I'd probably force it to open in position number 1 so that it's easy to throw focus to without needing to ALT+TAB to get to it.  I don't have my reference materials handy so I may be just making this up, but I don't think so.

Re: Elequence or something as good for NVDA

I looked around a little.  It looks like the Sappy 5 Version from Code Factory is around $70.00.  So, I’ll just have to use the free speech that comes with NVDA for a while.

Re: Eloquence or something as good for NVDA

James Bentley <bentleyj1952@...>
 

I haven’t heard from Richard yet but my impression was that he wanted to discuss East Texas and other things related to where we live.
 
After reading your last post, I am pretty certain that I will just use Eloquence from Code Factory when I come up with the cash.  And, just use the original NVDA voice on a thumb drive when I want to have speech on a computer outside of my home.
 
Gene, thank you for your input.  I sure wouldn’t have been impressed if I paid around $40,for lousy speech.  Especially since I am so impressed with NVDA itself.
 
As I learn more, I will probably be interested in what some of the NVDA add ons do but I have my plate full right now since I am also learning how to use Chrome.
 
Cheers,
 
James B

There is something else to consider.  First, I may have misunderstood the request to take the sub ject off list.  It might have referred to where people live.  I often see people take topics of general interest off lists and I first thought the request referred to the Eloquence discussion.
 
As far as the SAPI 5 versus the add on is concerned, I don't think you can use the SAPI 5 verxsion unless it is installed on the computer you want to use it with.  I suspect, though you would have to check, that you can use the add with a portable version and that it would run with the rest of NVDA from a thumb drive.  Perhaps, considering the problem of artifacts, you might want to have both versions, depending on where you are going to use the artifact.

James: I am running Windows 10, so this may not be available in Windows
7. In the disconnect dialog, there should also be a continue button,
that will force close all files and eject the media. You should not have
to restart. Of course, you do want to shut down NVDA properly and start
JAWS before you do any of this ejecting stuff.


By the way, I am also in East Texas and am curious as to where you are.
I would have asked you privately, but I couldn't figure out how to get
Thunderbird to relinquish your Email address.

You have to be in the Skype window for any of the commands to work though. Inconvenient to say the least.
I'm shocked to hear that it ever worked any other way (and I believe what you've said).   That violates virtually every "rule" Windows (any version) ever had about focus and how it determines what process/program gets what keystrokes.  

I believe that JAWS and NVDA both have some mechanism that if you start Skype first (or second through something like fifth or sixth) that there's a keyboard shortcut to throw focus to open program #X on the taskbar.  Were I constantly using Skype under the current circumstances I'd probably force it to open in position number 1 so that it's easy to throw focus to without needing to ALT+TAB to get to it.  I don't have my reference materials handy so I may be just making this up, but I don't think so.
