Actually most tv big names do talking sets if you go for their smart models, but the apps for online use are seldom accessible, which is a bit of a nonsense when you consider the investment they have made on talking menues, but this is really off topic here. A more general access list might give more answers for the country needed.

Sorry this does not exist in WIN 10. I suggest a simple HD antenna on a good ole HD TV. I know there is a piece of Software called Chris TV, but don’t know if it works with NVDA or how it works in general. Do a web search on said software.

Does Windows 10 not have Windows Media Center? Have you tried going to the start menu and typing Windows Media Center into the search? Maybe they call it something different in Windows 10, or have a replacement program built in for it. If you are still not sure what to do, try a Google search for Windows 10 Media Center, and it should tell you what is the new toy on the market. Sorry, I do not keep up with this stuff adequately. I just look at what I need, and learn about a new app, as I go along. I mostly use iTunes, e-mail, and the web.

To be honest, I'd not worry too much about end of life since xp is still in use and the much hyped threat of infection of these machines seems not to have materialised!


I would dispute that the Mediacentre is any good for UK tv access of ad or program guides.

I think Windows 7 goes end of life in 2020 though, meaning you won't get security updates. That is not a viable option. Try a Google search for what the new toy on the market is. Google Windows Media Center replacement.

Re: Free, accessible TV software

I think this is a big problem generally. The first thing is to define what tv system its to work with. National differences are quite radical, and of course the adaptor which is feeding the computer could be any from built in cards to usb dongles and online tv, Sat tv or terrestrial with all the different systems for AD and program guides in different parts of the world.
I do not think anyone has cracked it globally. there is still this tendency by the makers of this software that as its a visual thing, no point in making it work for blind people is there, kind of mindset.
However if anyone does find such universal software then bring it on.

Re: NVDA doesn't alt tab anymore, why?

 

Well if this is happening on your keyboard in the computer who knows could be a driver or a broken keyboard.

I have had the system or a system completely do this oddly with external wireless devices, my advice is to keep another keyboard and a supply of batteries about.

Depending on how much you use that board it can go flat quickly.

Even at full use you should be able to get 6 months to a year out of a wireless battery set as long as its a resonable unit, they don't need that much juice to run though.

Another thing to try next time is a restart of NVDA. That usually works for me.

I notice it happening with NVDA more and more lately but hopefully it will be fixed next release.

Re: Free, accessible TV software

 

Well I wouldn't trust some of that software.

Try installing cyberlink media suite from win7 on your win10 system so your cd drive will work with the system, pritty quickly you will find that its not compatible though it will install, but on restart you won't have any cd driver access.

I had to reset the system to get cd driver access back, I was doing a reload of the workstation here a few months back and it kept happening, I tried 5 times, and each time had to reformat to get windows to work again.

After 10 resets and 5 more reformats I had to put the cds in the bin and just do without them.

Thanks for all the replies, ideas and help.

I have windows 10 on both my laptop and desktop, with NVDA 2018.2.1 and word 2013.

This is what I have achieved so far.

Firstly, this is an assessment work book for my course, which you have to fill in to have your assessment done, so you have edit boxes and some combo boxes. So far I have managed to get the document to read fairly well on my laptop, but not my desktop, which is just weird since they both run the same setup. In reading mode of word I can read the document and it will show me the edit boxes and combo boxes, some of which are set out in tables. To fill them in I need to put word into print layout view in order to write in edit boxes, or choose combo box type answers. A little fiddly, but probably not impossible :). In prin layout mode it will default to reading the edit or combo box, so using the key combination to read tables is how you read the label for each thing. Ok, so it's not perfect, and probably should read better, but the fact that it does read, and can be used is definitely a plus :).

On the desktop, the edit boxes and combo boxes do not speak, but there is NVDA plus H which will give focus to those boxes, and tell you to type here. Work arounds yes, and if anyone has any more ideas tips or suggestions on this, I know it's a little complicated, please let me know. I'm sure there's something I probably haven't tried yet :).

Hi Lisa,

I would like to try to help with this, if I can!

Can you say what version of Word you are using, What version of Windows and the version of NVDA that you are using? This will set the grounds for investigation

I use Word 2016 with the latest NVDA (version 2018.2.1) and windows 10.

I often get word files as attachments to emails and Windows always puts them into protected mode (this is the default action). When I unprotect them, I can read them fine. That is why I would ask you to describe your actions step by step from the point of opening the word file, how you unprotect it. Tell us what you expect to find in the document and what you are not hearing after that.


All the best,

Cearbhall

Hello,
I have a Microsoft word issue I could do with some ideas on if anyone has any.

I have a document I can read fine with NVDA in protected view mode, but when I take protected view mode off to edit it, NVDA stops being able to read it properly. Run out of things to try.

Any ideas? [smile].

It is very good, and it has a web interface that you can use to schedule your recordings, then you can use whatever media player you are comfortable with to play your recordings.
The setup process is very accessible.

Does Windows 10 not have Windows Media Center? Have you tried going to the start menu and typing Windows Media Center into the search? Maybe they call it something different in Windows 10, or have a replacement program built in for it. If you are still not sure what to do, try a Google search for Windows 10 Media Center, and it should tell you what is the new toy on the market. Sorry, I do not keep up with this stuff adequately. I just look at what I need, and learn about a new app, as I go along. I mostly use iTunes, e-mail, and the web.

Sorry, I should have indicated TV Tuning software for use with a TV tuner adapter such as can be done using Windows Media Center under Windows 7.

Anyone know of Win10 software for watching TV which works with NVDA?

If needed, I could revert back to Windows7 on my other system but if
possible, want this as a last resort.
