Re: Review Cursor

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Andy,

NVDA works slightly differently to Jaws in this regard, however the overall aim is the same: to get to controls on screen that you can't access with the regular keyboard.

NVDA uses "object navigation" to move between "objects" on screen.  An object might be the ribbon in Word, the toolbars, the edit area and the status bar.  You can go "into" an object and see the objects it contains.  The ribbon in word for instance, contains the home ribbon, the insert ribbon, the view ribbon and so on, and inside each of those ribbons are the individual options like making text bold, or underlined, or change the style.  You can access the ribbon with the keyboard anyway, but it is still a good example of objects (hopefully).

The review cursor lets you read the text within the current object.  In the Basic Training for NVDA module, I use the example of the "winver" dialog which displays information about the version of Windows you are using (press the WINDOWS key, type WINVER and press ENTER to open it).  You can move up and down through the lines or word by word or character by character - like you can with normal text, but since it isn't accessible with the normal keyboard commands, it uses different commands.

I thought it best to give you the overview of those two features there rather than the keystrokes, since there are quite a few, and they vary between desktop keyboard layout and laptop keyboard layout.  I would strongly recommend the Basic Training for NVDA to give you a more complete idea of the review cursor and object navigation.  You can find the book for purchase in electronic format, audio or hardcopy Braille from our shop: http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

You can also read a sample chapter, which happens to be the one on the review cursor from the link on: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/basic-training-for-nvda-ebook/

Chapter 5 in the User Guide does give all the relevant keystrokes, although without the in-depth explanation and step-by-step activities that you get in the training material: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#NavigatingWithNVDA

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: speech rate control

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Marisane,

Gene's method involves opening NVDA's Speech settings.  As he noted, it's not the quickest way you were after, but offers slightly finer grained control over adjustment.

There is a shortcut key directly which is NVDA+control+up arrow to increase speech rate and NVDA+control+down arrow to decrease speech rate.

Press NVDA+control+left arrow or NVDA+control+right arrow to change which speech setting is adjusted (speech rate, pitch, volume, voice) with NVDA+control+up or down arrow, but rate is the default.

Regards

Quentin.

You are right that this is cumbersome.

I believe it is shift nvda control left right to circle to speech then nvda shift control up and down arrow to go up and down through choices.

It's version 6. It definitely said flash, not html5.

Many things regarding managing VMs do not have be done via the
webinterface. If ssh is enabled on your VMcenter host and you can log
in you can use the command line. Also on nodes of an VMware cluster this
is possible. Also there is an apliance from VMware which can be used to
manage virtual machines via perl script or power shell, but I have to

Yes, that would be helpful to know about.

We are still using 6.5 and I am also not able to access our VMcenter,
but an update to 6.7 is planed and I hope things will get better.

So in conclusion the command line will help you much more then the

that not all things might be done with a screenreader.

Re: Security in NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi René,

In a secure environment, you can run NVDA with the --secure command line argument which does disable the python console (as well as disabling the add-on manager).

Kind regards

Re: accessible disk imaging software

 

I have used the windows version in my university days and it works well enough.

Speaking of linux, the next windows is supposed to be able to natively read mac and unix text files.

Would have been good if I had this feature in university more than 10 years back.

I had to use a unix to dos converter  and dos to unix to read text files on each os.

And once it was dos text, windows could read it and convert it to windows text format.
