Re: google domains configuration web site seems inaccessible

Stephen
 

I find a good rule of thumb for combo boxes that jump around whenever you change them is to press the alt-up arrow or down arrow keys.
My TV DVR program does something similar whenever I tell it what time to begin a scheduled recording, and I press alt-down arrow to open the combo box and that seems to work.

Here is not the place for a rant, but I will say this, even when a page is so called accessible the main gripe I have is confused layout, over the top complexity on a single page and controls that work completely differently in different places like edit areas that keep saying invalid input as you try to type into them or combo boxes that sometimes work normally at other times jump about as soon as you move them.

The people making web sites forget one ruling factor for the blind is there is not any easy way to get an overview and go straight to the bit you want, as normally you have no idea what the bit you want is called or even if its on the page!

I might add, if it takes assistance from a list for help getting through a web page, for someone who has pretty good computer and screenreader skills, then even if there is a non-basic solution that was later learned by help from a list, I don't consider the page to be accessible.
I'm glad we can be here to offer assistance, but most Blind users struggle to learn all the commands we teach them, and if these things are challenges for those of us who can do just about all of it, then what hope is there for the majority of screenreader users?

It sure seems like more and more pages are becoming less accessible.
Seems like we are losing ground in the area of accessibility in this regard.

Subject: [nvda] google domains configuration web site seems unaccessible

Hi folks,
I am trying to configure my web domain on google domains but while using NVDA and Firefox, when I go to domains.google.com and log in, the tabs appear, but when I navigate, for example, to the configure dns tab and press enter, or nvda/numEnter the options which are supposed to appear don't seem to be available to me with NVDA. I have not confirmed that they do appear on the screen, all I know is that I cannot get to them using my conventional methods, arrows or tab.

Any thoughts?

One tricky thing I find with Emoji is that different platforms have different icons for them so things can look quite different.  Sometimes I hear NVDA describe an emoji and my first reaction is "Really? Is THAT was that thing is meant to be?"

Hi Paul,

Press WINDOWS+. or WINDOWS+; to open the emoji panel, then either right
arrow through the items in the current section, press tab to move to the
sections and arrows to choose a new section, or start typing to search for
emoji, eg "cake"
🍰, "Smiling" or "firetruck" 🚒 (as with many other
search fields, you don't necessarily have to type the full thing - I typed
"fire" to narrow the results down to a handful to get the fire truck).

Press ENTER to insert your chosen emoji, and escape to close the panel.

Regards

Quentin.

best forum members,

I have downloaded the nvda 2018.3 rc1 and put it into use.

but I am not entirely positive, there is still something here and there.

Like, I have already experienced a number of times, that I used the

emoticon add-on, often it goes well but suddenly without any apparent

reason it gets stuck.

With alt tab I can then go back to the text where I wanted to place an

emoji.

but it is not going well. Only after I have restarted nvda again can I

place an emoticon again.

are there more people who have the same problem?

with nvda 2018.2 I did not have these problems.

do I have to update the emoticon add-on?

is it available?

with a curious greeting

Re: windows one core voice max rate

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Manish,

In Windows Text-to-speech settings (start typing text to speech settings in the start menu) there is a slider for "speed".  Move that further to the right to increase the speech rate.  Note that this setting as well as NVDA's speech rate together both affect how fast the voice talks, so the fastest speed would be both at max.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi,

I tried using the windows one core voice with NVDA today. I tried increasing the rate of speech but even at 100% the rate was slower than I would like.

The same voice, Microsoft David, can be set to a much faster rate when using narrator. With narrator, I could get David to speak almost as fast as espeakNG.

 

Has anyone else noticed this and figured out a way around this?

hi, I've uninstalled the emoticon add-on.
but I still can not read emoticons anymore.
what can be wrong?
i'I've installed nvda 2018.3rc1 the emoticon add-on is completely removed and also after a reboot no emoticons will be red!
that was the reason to ask I can emoticons put on or off.
thanks in advance

Because the emoticon add-on you have installed conflicts with nvda 18.3

Either go back to 18.2 or remove the add-on as its not really required anymore

Until you have removed the add-on you are going to have the issue 😃

Re: Automatic Reading of Footnotes in Word

Glad I could Help!

For reading the comments of your tutors you don't need to convert the original word file. NVDA will announce when it will come across a comment while reading a document. Then, you can press NVDA+alt+C to read that particular comment. Additionally, you can press NVDA+F7 to bring up the elements list in word and can get the preview of all the comments in the document. You can even jump to the comment of your choice from the same.
