Gene,

I remember the issue, and I recall having a couple of dialogues with Mick about it, and from memory, I think he had an idea of something to look at, but I can't recall the outcome.  The best suggestion I have off the top of my head, is to try Beta 3 and see if it resolves the issue.

Re: Can't select words using latest stable versions Firefox, NVDA

Jackie
 

I think the biggest loss to our community has been that of Webvisum.
There was this 1 music site--again no longer in existence--that
required completion of a captcha in order to download music. After my
eldest daughter was killed, I frequented that site a lot. It helped me
get thru all that. I will always be grateful to those gentlemen for
that addon. I told them so, too, both w/my words & w/my money. But
when you can't make enough money for doing stuff like that to keep the
lights on, you move on to other stuff that pays the bills.
Unfortunately, that's what a lot of these programmers have to do,
because they're simply not making enough money to make it worthwhile
to continue maintaining the app in question.

Nice to make your acquaintance, Travis.

Indeed, that worked. So I decided to paw thru what few FF addons I had

@#$%! So something in the last update of ff proved incompatible
w/Nimbus Screen Capture. O, well--I can just as easily use Screen

that happens, though. Man all these addons can really cause problems
when they want to!

Thanks again for the reminder about portable ff. & editing w/ff will

Hi Jackie,


Here's one thing I thought of trying. This should tell us if your
Firefox update might have corrupted things somehow.


Grab the portable version of Firefox:

https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

It's version 62.0.2, the latest right now, and choose where you want it
on your computer.

When done, open it up and see if you can select text normally, or if
you're still having trouble. If things are normal, your desktop
installation may have corrupted, and you might have to uninstall and
reinstall Firefox. If things are still not working properly with the
portable edition, you may have to do the same uninstalling/reinstalling,
but this time with NVDA.

Another idea is to disable all NVDA and/or Firefox add-ons and
extensions and see if something there may be causing troubles. If things
work after that, try enabling things one at a time, and one of them will
likely break Firefox selection for you, but you'll know what the culprit
is this time.

Hopefully something will work.

I just tested things again with NVDA 2018.2, Windows 10 and Firefox
61.0.2, both 64-bit, and all worked as expected.

Good luck,

Travis

Re: reading mail in outlook 365

Annette Moore
 

Reading line by line is just a personal preference for me. It's what I've always done, and I feel I take in and retain information better if it's not all coming at me at once. with that said, though, if I'm in a particular hurry, I will read with say-all. Sure, I know I could just hit the control key and shut it up and go back if I need to, but reading line by line is just always for the most part what I've done.

You can force Outlook to open emails as plain text rather than HTML (File menu, options, Trust centre, Email security, read all standard email in plain text), however, that displays links to external images as links and reads out the full link of each, rather than the HTML view which simply denotes "graphic".

Re: Update on Amazon Kindle Site with NVDA

Abbie, just so we can look at the same stuff, can you tell us what
book you were trying to get?

I had some trouble w/it last time when this was brought up, but I
looked at it today regarding a book title & here's what I got:
"Is Your Cat Crazy Solutions from the Casebook of a Cat Therapist:
Solutions from the Casebook of a Cat TherapistMar 27, 1996   Kindle
eBook
by John C. Wright
$10.99
Kindle Edition
Buy now with 1-Click ® (button)
Get it TODAY, Aug 28
4 out of 5 stars 12

so the 1-click button was definitely there for me.

Try restarting NVDA. I did have that work one time when the normal
selection methods seemed to be broken. No guarantees, but worth a try at
least I think. Pressing ctrl+alt+n will automatically close and restart
NVDA.

Well, it works when a whole line is selected, but not word by word.

Hi

it is not happening on my version of fire fox and it is the latest
version 61 some thing  a rather. It is selecting what I want and i
hear
it say the word then selecting or is it selected all the line i want
then copy it.

So no problems but I am using a 32 bit version of fire fox but do not
think that would  just because you have a 64 bit version it would do
it.

Hi everyone,

 

I have decided to be brave and set up a blog on my site at www.multisensorydesign.ie to discuss various aspects of the approach and ideas for multisensory design as against purely visual solutions such as those that cause us such a nuisance.

 

I have been doing some research and WordPress keeps coming up. Is this the best option for managing a blog non-visually using NVDA?

 

All ideas and suggestion welcome!

Re: reading mail in outlook 365

Quentin Christensen
 

Since this is the second email in a row to ask a similar question, I'm curious, why do people read pieces of text that may be long, using the arrow keys rather than Say All (NVDA+down arrow or NVDA+a depending on your setup)?

Note that I'm not saying you SHOULD do it one way or the other, just wanting a better understanding of why people do things the way they do.  For me, I use Say All with a finger ready on SHIFT to pause speech as needed.

You can force Outlook to open emails as plain text rather than HTML (File menu, options, Trust centre, Email security, read all standard email in plain text), however, that displays links to external images as links and reads out the full link of each, rather than the HTML view which simply denotes "graphic".

Regards

Quentin.

I decided to try my hand with Outlook 365. I liked it, overall. However, emails with NVDA and Outlook 365 didn't read as well as they do with Thunderbird and NVDA. For example, it appears that using arrow keys in some emails in Outlook 365 is not a great solution. All you see is blank lines and graphics, whereas you see links and a fairly compact view in Thunderbird. The tab key doesn't change this in any way, shape or form.


Has anyone else seen this, and if you have, does anyone have a solution? For me, using Outlook 365 won't work unless I can get around these issues. I'm using the latest version of NVDA alpha. Any help with this one is much appreciated, and thanks in advance.

Hi George,

On my computer, the background is set to harmony and the color is set to its defaults.

I have not made any changes to the theme.
