The phrase Virtualised window is often used to describe the process where text is collected from a Screen GUII and presented in a virtual window buffer which a screenreader can use.

 

In relation to the original question NVDA in the first case will most often read a window / dialogue box with the same keypress as Jaws – that is NVDA plus B.

Unfortunately NVDA does not have all the same cursor abilities as Jaws but if NVDA plus B does not deliver the required results then some options are still available.

First of all you can try object navigation.  Basically you can experiment with pressing numbers of the keypad if you have desktop layout to see if you get any useful results. You can refer to the User Guide for more detailed and explicit instructions.

Finally you can use the inbuilt Windows 10 OCR facility with NVDA simply by pressing NVDA plus R.

This is often as good as if not better than Jaws Virtual Convenient OCR in relation to reading window contents.

If using earlier  versions of windows you will need to download an Virtual OCR  addon but I must admit when I used to use this it did not deliver many useful results in my experience.

Suggestion regarding replies on this list

Antony Stone
 

Hi.

I have a couple of suggestions regarding how to make replies on this list more
useful to the people who asked the questions:


1. If your reply is basically "I don't have a problem doing this", please
explain how you do it - what application you use, how you find the content,
whether you use speech or Braille - anything which might help the person who
asked the question understand how you do manage to do it without the problem
that they are having.

Simply saying "I don't have a problem doing this" doesn't give the person who
asked the question any information about how they might be able to do it too.


2. If you are the person asking the question, please give as much information
as possible about what you are doing when you encounter a problem - either so
that other people can reproduce your problem and possibly suggest what to do
about it, or possibly so that someone who doesn't have the problem can see
"ah, this bit is different from what I do" and tell you how you might go about
it differently.


And finally, if you find a solution to your problem (either on this list or from
elsewhere), please post a follow-up message saying what you had to do
differently in order to make something work better, so that others can learn
from it, and maybe find your answer in the list archives later and avoid having
to ask the same question again.

Just saying "it's okay, everything is working now" without saying what you did
or what has changed can be quite frustrating for someone else with the same
proble, who now knows that you have a solution but doesn't know what it is.


Thanks,


Antony.

Hi, I’ve never found the process of reading Kindle books from the PC difficult at all. You do have to go to Amazon to buy the books, it would be the same way if you have the Kindle app for your iPhone, I believe.

FS Reader works fine in NVDA.

Just install Jaws and let it alone and run FS Reader and use it withNVDA.

Re: Screen reader accessibility with Kindle

I've used the Kindle for PC app, and the latest version has the
accessibility function built directly in. You used to have to install
a separate plugin for it to work; now it's just there. The app is free
too. I think you do need to have NVDA on at the same time, in order to
navigate the menu that is accessed by pressing the alt key. Regarding
books that don't have this enabled, I'm pretty sure you can find out,
when you go to the book's page on Amazon. It will say whether speech
is enabled or not on the Kindle version of the book. hth

Almost all Books will let you read their Text with JAWS or NVDA. But I

but the Kendal program attempts to speak the text. It isn't a good
clear voice, and so far I've not figured a way to re-read a line, or go
back a line or two.

Not sure how to know if a Book will read with the Screen Reader or not.

Why does NVDA find not find "cars" on this page?

 

https://harrisonburg.craigslist.org/search/cto?auto_make_model=convertible

If I use a straight browser search it finds the word, "cars," in the navigation frame on the left in the "cars & trucks - by owner" link, and it is a link, as well as in the "background text" in the edit box that shows the same phrase in light gray until you start typing in a search term.

Sometimes when I use the NVDA find it finds it, other times, it doesn't.  It seems to depend on my having interacted with the page, but that content does not appear/disappear whether I've interacted with the page or not.

I seem to have this happening more frequently lately with both NVDA and JAWS (yes, I know that this isn't the JAWS group, but wanted to note it).  I have always encouraged my clients to favor the screen reader search function over the straight browser search as it takes into account controls that a straight search does not.  But lately it also seems to be not finding things I can clearly see are present on the screen.  It's a mystery to me why this is.

Tooltips

Vlad Dragomir
 

Good afternoon,

Friends, this might seem odd to some and obvious to others, so I feel I should apologise in advance for what follows.

I've just learnt about the existance of tooltips. If I understand well, they are messages displayed when someone points the mouse at certain elements on a web page, without clicking on them. If possible, I would be curious to know the folowing:
1. How can we know if, and where these tooltips are present? Does NVDA anounces them? If so, what does it say?I don't remember hearing such information so far, and I've been using it for quite a while.
2. How can we read those tooltips, given that we rarely use the mouse? At least I never do that, even though I know about mouse simulation; I never have the reflex to actually use that function. I am getting old I suppose.

I thank in advance all those who will enlighten me on this topic.

Warm regards from France,

Vlad.

Can you be any more specific - which aspects do you find annoying?

Which app do you use to read the books, and are you talking about audiobooks
or eBooks?

Re: Password for certification Exam

Hi, Quentin. I did find a way to create a new account on the page. I’ll try the password recovery one more time and, if that doesn’t work, will create a new account with a different email address.

 

Should I wait to take the exam? I believe I read that you are in the process of confirming that the updated questions are live. Your thoughts?

 

Thanks.

Hi Keith,

 

If you haven't purchased anything else, you can create a new account from: https://www.nvaccess.org/my-account/

 

If you have purchased other things (eg training material), you will need to recover your existing account in order to retrieve those (there is no pre-requisite for the original certification exam, though ideally you'd only want one account).

 

In the meantime, I will look into our system, just in case there is any issue with sending out the password recovery email.

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Re: Password for certification Exam

Thanks, Quentin. I did donate, so that’s probably why I have an account. But I tried every password I know – all to no avail.

 

Thanks for looking into the system for me. I’ll try retrieving my password later today. I didn’t even see an option on the page to create a new account, and I am guessing this is because I have donated and thus have the account.
