Re: [SUSPECTED SPAM] [nvda] Change on Amazon makes buying options less, possibly inaccessible with screenreaders while on product page

Ervin, Glenn
 

I don’t think it is just with NVDA.

Last night I tried to return an item I received from Amazon, and I could not complete the page, it kept telling me that Chrome’s Java needed updating, but Chrome’s help said it was up to date.

I tried Jaws too.

I tried I.E. and WaterFox to no avail.

I hate wasting my time to not have a site work for the Blind.

I wound up having to call customer service and finish it that way.

Subject: [SUSPECTED SPAM] [nvda] Change on Amazon makes buying options less, possibly inaccessible with screenreaders while on product page

 

Up through yesterday, I had no trouble buying Kindle books through Amazon. Things were labeled, and easily findable. Today the area of the page where the buying options are seems to have changed.

There is now a new heading called "Buying Options." It's the first heading on the page. The interesting thing about this heading is that there is no number associated with it. Instead of saying "heading level 1," as the heading below it says, all is says is "heading."

I think the buy and read now links, along with the price that used to be readily visible are now hidden inside the new "heading" area. Arrowing down once leads to the "add to list" checkbox.

This has been confirmed both in Firefox 64 and Chrome 64 using Windows 7 64-bit and NVDA 2018.2.1.

If anyone else can confirm, and can have any idea on how to deal with this, that would be appreciated.

Here's an example. For the US, this book is free at least today, hence why I chose it, so trying to buy it won't cost anybody any money. And, yes, the page is the same whether a book is free or not:

gene,
do you mean that nvda does not say server not found or no connection
available in this case?

Problem with standard F5 keystroke is that almost every single browser
will then just reload the page from scratch, losing all DHTML content
changes.


I do also know that NVDA key + number row 5 is meant to turn on
reporting of dynamic content changes, but, it won't always work, partly
since, at times, the webpages document-object-model will be rather
extensive.


Either way, I had just thought/assumed that it was offering/implementing
a form of virtual page buffer refresh, but anyway - will play around
with other keystrokes, alt+tabbing away from window, and back to it,
etc. etc.

If NVDA key f5 is explained in the manual, I don't know where. It
isn't discussed in the browse mode section. It is probably mentioned
in the quick reference guide, but it may well not clarify what it does.

This is something I think has been going on across a few versions of
NVDA now, and, just wanted to confirm that it's not me that's confused.


I am currently making use of Version: alpha-15854,a8bda064, FWIW.


Anyway, I was under the impression that, for example, in a web browser,
the hotkey combination of NVDA + F5 should repopulate the virtual
buffer
rendition of the page contents - I do need this at times since I work
with dynamic web contents - but, it seems to, literally, just reload
the
page as if you'd clicked on something like the browsers own refresh
button, or as if you'd in fact told NVDA that the next keypress should
be passed directly through to the operating system?


Or am I incorrect in having thought it only repopulated a form of
virtual buffer for the webpage?

Re: NVDA remote not working with last alpha: alpha-15854,a8bda064

Ângelo Abrantes
 

Hi,

My sincere thanks for solving the problem; but, frankly, it seems to me that I'm going to stop using the alpha versions and, even more, I'm going to stop participating, if something does not work properly, since not one answer was given, except Bryan's.

Is it worth testing and submitting reviews?

Re: Accessible YouTube Video Downloading Software

First, it would be helpful if someone would answer the question as to whether any conversion programs will convert
multiple files in the history.  I've seen programs that will convert files from a playlist.  I've never seen a program that states that it will convert from a history page.  Since I've never seen this, that raises the question of whether this feature is offered at all.

Re: NVDA FireFox and PDF Incompatibility

 

Well you shouldn't need to ocr every pdf you open most pdfs, 99.9% of them unless they are images will not need scanning.

If its an image, acrobat dc will tell you when you need ocr.

On 8/14/2018 11:46 PM, Gene wrote:
Since Docuscan is an OCR program, it sounds to me as though you are performing OCR on every PDF document you open. This takes extra time; it may take a good deal of extra time. There are times, I don't work with PDF documents enough to know how often, that this will correct or reduce decolumnization problems. That is, at times, just reading a PDF document that is in columns misplaces text significantly. OCR can at times, correct or mostly eliminate the problem. but it also introduces errors and is not the original document, if you need the original document for some reason, such as for legal reasons.

In short, instead of having an OCR program recognize every PDF document, you might to better to have an actual PDF reader display files, then decide if you want to perform OCR on them. Your newspaper may or may not display properly without OCR. If it doesn't need OCR, you will eliminate errors in recognition and you will have the document ready faster, perhaps much faster.

If it does need OCR, it may be most efficient to have it recognized by Docuscan rather than by downloading it first. But there may be times when you would be better served temporarily changing the setting to work with another program.

resolved, this might be a good work-around.

Re: NVDA FireFox and PDF Incompatibility?

Desert Moon
 

Hello David,

Suppose the newsletter appears as a link, you can try right-clicking on it. From the list, choose "Save link as" and see if you can save the PDF file on your local hard drive. If it doesn't work, you need to deactivate the Adobe add-in in your classic Firefox:

1. Choose Tools > Add-ons.
2. In the Add-ons Manager window, click the Plugins tab, then select Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
3. Choose Never Activate.

Now, when you click on the same PDF newsletter link, Firefox should open a window and ask you whether to save the file of open it with your default PDF viewer.

Please note that if you upgrae your Firefox to Quantum, the process will be completely different.

The x swith will extract your videos from the web pages in their default format; that is, the format in which they were uploaded. I can't give you an --audio-format and --audio-quality switch because it can vary depending on the upload format of the videos in question.

It doesn't convert youtube formats, but I have a program called youtube downloader gui located at

http://www.softcon.com/files/

that will download any number of youtube videos.  Read the documentation, it tells you where to go to get the support programs you'll need to do the downloading, and fmpeg can do the converting for you once it's downloaded.  I should probably put a link to ffmpeg in the documentation too, even though I don't use it, it is a useful utility. Perhaps I should build a graphical interface for that one too.

Dear all,

Presently, I use clipconverter.cc to download YouTube videos in the
desired format and quality. However, I am now looking for a software
equivalent that can download multiple YouTube videos simultaneously in
my preferred format and at a selectable quality that is free as well
as accessible.

I would truly appreciate any suggestions or recommendations of such software.

Thanks.

Re: Change on Amazon makes buying options less, possibly inaccessible with screenreaders while on product page

Annette Moore
 

that "buy now with one click button" shows up just as prettily as you please in System Access by hitting b, so I think I'll use that until this is fixed in NVDA. Although maybe it would be better for my bank account if I didn't. Hahaha! goes to show, though, that it's a good idea to have more than one screen reader on your computer.

Thanks, Travis. I will file this info away because I, too, use Kindle
Unlimited. I used it just the other day to grab a book and it worked
just fine: the correct buttons showed in the correct places and showed
as actual buttons. thank you. I wouldn't have even thought to route the
NVDA cursor to the buttton because I'm not as familiar with that as I
really need to be. I never used the virtual mouse cursor in System
Access when I used it and rarely ever used the JAWS cursor in JAWS when
I used that because I didn't really understand how it worked, but it
sounds like it's time for me to learn to understand it. LOL! Thanks again.

need the shift, without it, it activates an entirely different page
which has ne bearing on what I'm trying to do). No idea why the shift
works and w/o the shift doesn't, but there it is. That's the only
I've managed to get my books into the kindle app using the web site.
Interestingly enough, using safari on the Iphone doesn't have this issue.

For me, personally, that would be absolutely incredible. Does this support any URL that youtube dl supports, too?
Thank you so much for this hidden gem.

Sarah, that's the point of my youtube download gui frontend. It does use youtube-dl, it just makes it easier for folks who don't like command lines to do the work. It also accepts multiple urls (one per line) in case folks want to download multiple videos at a time. It also has the option of using curl or wget to download urls other than those on youtube. You could clone your entire web site using wget and the proper command line parameters, and the youtube graphical front end I have on my site will make it all point and click for you.
