This will definitely give Next PVR accessibility a boost; and glad I thought of it, since I use Firefox. After launching Next PVR player in Firefox, Alt-V, Y to bring up Page Styles. Set to None. Now, NVDA will speak the buttons.

NextPVR does all of that for you.
The channel scanning is extremely accessible, and setting the software to
record via the web interface is a breeze.

Or get used to your tv you have, not all channels can have audio

samsung ones, my 24 inch soni is not.

I got a sightling to set the tv and it works, ofcause you need to
memorise the channels you need and then go for it.

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

Hello,

no, the issue cannot be described in terms of delays. When feedback fails to occur, it will then simply not occur no matter how long I would wait. It is genuinely different behavior rather than just slowed down normal behavior.

Hi Quentin. Thanks for the reply. I’ll send the log. If that happened again. And yes. Creating that kind of algorithms is dangerous too. If you create an addon or something. The bots can use that. But in the newer version of Firefox. Which service should I use. As you know. The webvisum is gone. And it can no longer useable with latest Firefox. And about the flexible web. You can read about on this page

Hi Abdul,

 

1) I haven't been paying attention, I'm not sure what Flexible web is?

2) There is a screen curtain feature being tested currently.  You can read more and try it here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7857

3) Image description:  Good idea, There was an issue created awhile ago, but it doesn't appear anyone has looked at the current situation: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7671

4) Re OCR has gone downhill.  I'm not sure.  It's not even something that's easy to replicate

5) There are several performance issues with Office we are slowly working on.  If you have a particular one in mind, search for it on our Issue tracker and you will hopefully find a relevant conversation to follow: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

6) Unlikely.  The problem is that CAPTCHAs are designed to make you do something that proves you are a human, so bots and computer generated algorithms can't get past them.  Ergo, WE can't write an algorithm to defeat them (and if we do, they will change the test, because if we can, the spammers can too).  The best approach is to advocate for change in addressing the problem that CAPTCHA seeks to solve.

7) Not sure off the top of my head.  After it happens, if you could send me a copy of your NVDA log, ideally at debug level  (to info@... ) I can have a look and try for you.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

1.      Can we expect flexible web with NVDA in future?

2.      What about the screen curtain addon for NVDA?

3.      As you all know, Narrator has an image description feature, why we doesn’t have this important feature in NVDA?

4.      In the early updates of win10. When the win10 OCR implemented on NVDA. It recognize almost everything, for example, the photos in photos app, even I used it for reading video games menu. But now, its very laggy. And doesn’t recognize as it was before. Why is that?

5.      In Microsoft office 2013 or 2016, the NVDA has so many delays, while reading, writing, and while reading the ribbon menus, why?

6.      In the modern browsers like the Firefox quantum, solving captcha images is the main issue for many vi people. Can we expect a feature in NVDA for it

7.      Last question, I’m using Microsoft mail app. And I’ve created a sepret profile for it. Sometimes after reading or replying to a mail. When I press windows plus m to move to the desktop. The NVDA stops reading anything. And it force me to restart the NVDA, why?

I hope all of the above mentioned problems will be fixed in the

Future!

Keep the NVDA alive!

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.

Yes, I can press f2 from the main interface to get to live TV mode, and you can also press pg-up and pg-down to switch channels. I can't help out with the closed caption query though, sorry.

Hi,

If I may ask, have you been able to watch live TV with Next PVR? I
found this very difficult but it's always possible I was missing something.
Further, have you managed to access closed captioning with Next or any other
application?
Thanks,
Aman

NextPVR does all of that for you.
The channel scanning is extremely accessible, and setting the software to
record via the web interface is a breeze.

Ofcause with all the tvs being digital it may be easier to set an

Or get used to your tv you have, not all channels can have audio
descriptions and while some tvs do have accessibility in them including
samsung ones, my 24 inch soni is not.

I got a sightling to set the tv and it works, ofcause you need to
memorise the channels you need and then go for it.

Re: using NVDA with BleachBit

Mallard
 

Hello,


I got curious and downloaded teh portable version of BleachBit for Windows.


Unfortunately it isn't accessible in itself, but it looks as if it can be used with the help of Windows10 OCR without too many problems.


It's a very thorough programme, at least at a quick glance. I don't feel safe trying it out without someone here to prevent me from messing up my system... So I'll wait till my husband is here before I do play with it more in depth.


Ciao,

Ollie

I'm checking out Next PVR but don't find it very accessible. First, no desktop shortcuts are installed so for me the quickest way of launching it is searching from the start menu for Next PVR which brings up the player as a Firefox document. However, when opening it, I find some slider controls along with several unlabeled buttons.

Re: Intermittent lack of feedback in Windows Explorer

 

Hi,

Yes, I thought so. I’m hoping that there would be a resolution from both NV Access and Microsoft (a little hint: some of you are already testing a potential fix).

Hello,

no, the issue cannot be described in terms of delays. When feedback fails to occur, it will then simply not occur no matter how long I would wait. It is genuinely different behavior rather than just slowed down normal behavior.

Re: New Google results page??

 

I noticed google have redone their site, there are results clearly labeled as either adds, web or whatever, google the site for search has gotten a lot easier to handle for me.

what is the solution to make previous behaviour?

if you ignore it and use the search results list it seems very restricted
compared to how it was. It seems to be prioritising videos and pictures,
when what I really want are articles and web sites.

Is there any way to get the traditional system back or does one have to
figure out the new choices system after a log in to actually make it act in

Re: Intermittent lack of feedback in Windows Explorer

 

Nvda can be silent when opening some programs and refreshing them if I doodle about a bit it happens but still I have noticed it to.

Hi Joseph,
happens on Win 7 and 10. I could detect no correlation with restarting NVDA.

And does restarting NVDA resolve the problem for a while? If it does and if the problem happens again, then I think I know what might be going on. Also, which Windows version are you using?

Hello,

no, the issue cannot be described in terms of delays. When feedback fails to occur, it will then simply not occur no matter how long I would wait. It is genuinely different behavior rather than just slowed down normal behavior.

Best,

Felix

I had this with explorer both on windows 7 and 10, and it was the processor

 Of course it could be something else, but this was the reason I found for
most of it. I would have thought that as nvda is hogging one core and hence
stopping the machine using it, Windows ought to sense it and up the speed of
the cores. It seems that this only happens sometimes when more than one core
is maxed out. I guess this might be because nvda is a 32 bit app, not a 64
bit one with  the ability to  push threads though different processor cores.
