Help Please NVDA With Spybot Cont.

David Russell
 

Hello again,

Brian and all, thanks for the input thus far. Let me try and walk you
through what happens.
- I go to the link you provided and press enter on the Spybot Free Edition.
- At the appropriate juncture, I press enter on download and enter on save.
- I then go to the desktop, go to my download folder, find the Spybot
file, press enter, and press enter on run to set up.
It is there, that NVDA says something to the effect, Desktop secured.
Nothing happens after waiting several moments.
Yes, I am sure files delete from the download folder when deleted.
I will get a number stating files remaining.
There must be a setting in FireFox preventing me from running a setup,
but do not have an idea what it would be. Any clues?
I assume the file downloads because it is in the download folder. Thanks again.

I'm not saying you shouldn't discuss these things, but you make it sound as though a lot of people will have serious problems.  That is what I disagree with.  and I said, when properly taught.  There is a lot of inferior teaching about ribbons.  And I suspect the reason the Microsoft representative said to embrace ribbons is for the reason I said, that you lose functionality or features when you try to force ribbons to be menus.  But others will have to comment on that.
 
As far as the JAWS attempt to force ribbons to be menus, see this article.  It discusses the inconveniences and problems encountered when you use the JAWS system.

This is a huge can of worms. I personally feel that they are dire for blind

 Its a classic case of the way your brain visualises the concepts.
 I did notice Jaws can be set to pretend they are normal menus, but my
feeling here is that since you can use a simple add on to alter them  ie
ribbon remover, then I see no reason why Microsoft do not offer the
themselves, but in a recent interview with Jenny at Microsoft she merely
said, Embrace the ribbon, which I took to mean  they are dogmatically
against it.

Re: Virtual dub 2.

 

Yeah. I tried it this morning to do a bit of video editing, tried it from a few MKV files I ripped from DVD's and it seems to be just as accessible as the old. I can't find the git hub page though. It is open source, but from my experience, blind developers tend to do their own version of whatever. Still, I like the program because I can't find an accessible, modern, video editor anywhere and this is the best we have, for now.

Re: NVDA and ribbon menues

You have a problem, as you said .  Most people learn ribbons without a lot of trouble.  It may take them a little time but if taught properly, they don't find them a major problem.  You are discouraging people from learning ribbons. 
 
I am skeptical and suspicious of ribbon removing programs.  I suspect you lose functionality when you try to force one interface to become another interface.  I hope people comment on that.

Agreed. I also hate the ribbon, but I had to learn it in my computer class in 2008. My teacher also didn't know what he was doing as he got that version of word the day before so we were both learning together. So learn it or get left behind is what I say. I'm getting gleft behind. Lol!

Hello Sylvie and Ollie:

I am not sure why moving to the next and previous comments shortcut keys do
not work. I am running the latest desktop version of Word in Office 365. One
way to find out the actual shortcut key is by navigating the ribbon. Press
Alt+R. This will place you in the Review tab of the ribbon, where the
commenting feature resides. Now press Ctrl+right arrow until you hear
comments grouping. On my version of Word, I needed to press it 5 times. Once
there, use the Tab key until you hear previous button. NVDA should also tell
you the shortcut key. Pressing Tab one more time should get you to the Next
button where again, NVDA should let you know the shortcut. On my version of
Word, there are 4 buttons in the comments group of the Review tab. The first
is to insert a comment, the second is to delete a comment, the third is to
move to the previous comment and the fourth is to move to the next comment.

Navigating the ribbon is a great way to learn shortcut key combinations for
future reference.

Hello Sylvie and Ollie:

The method described by Sylvie will find more than comments if
present in a document. For example, if track changes was used to
record changes made to a document, the A key while in browse mode
will also move to those as well as comments. Furthermore, when using
the A key in browse mode, it will take you to the place in the
document where the selected text associated with the comment is, but
will not place you in the actual comment for editing, deleting or
replying.

Word has built-in keystrokes for navigating comments in a document
which will work with any screen reader. Alt+N will move to the next
comment while Alt+V will move you to a previous comment. When using
these commands, you are actually placed in the comment and can
perform the keystrokes described by Silvie to respond to or delete a
comment.

Hello again Ollie,
If you enable the browsing mode in word with Nvda+spacebar, you can
jump to one comment/annotation by pressing a.
When you are on the comment you want to see, right click with the
appropriate key or shift+f10 and use the down and up arrow keys. You
will find a menu entry to modify, answer, delete or mark the comment
as closed.
You can also display the list of comments in pressing nvda+F7, you
can choose to display the list of annotations and browse through the
different comments.
If you don't know the keystroke, when NVDA says "has a comment", you
can have it read in pressing nvda+alt+C.
Enjoy!

NVDA and Add On Updates behind a http proxy

Christian Schoepplein
 

Hi,

my workstation is using a http proxy to access the internet and it seems
like the automated updates of NVDA and Add Ons is having problems with
this setup. I am not notified when updates are available because NVDA
seems not be able to contact the regardings server(s) through the proxy.

Is this behaviour known and what can I do to let NVDA connect using the
proxy server?

Cheers,

Schoepp

Hello Sylvie and Ollie:

The method described by Sylvie will find more than comments if
present in a document. For example, if track changes was used to
record changes made to a document, the A key while in browse mode
will also move to those as well as comments. Furthermore, when using
the A key in browse mode, it will take you to the place in the
document where the selected text associated with the comment is, but
will not place you in the actual comment for editing, deleting or
replying.

Word has built-in keystrokes for navigating comments in a document
which will work with any screen reader. Alt+N will move to the next
comment while Alt+V will move you to a previous comment. When using
these commands, you are actually placed in the comment and can
perform the keystrokes described by Silvie to respond to or delete a
comment.

Hello again Ollie,
If you enable the browsing mode in word with Nvda+spacebar, you can
jump to one comment/annotation by pressing a.
When you are on the comment you want to see, right click with the
appropriate key or shift+f10 and use the down and up arrow keys. You
will find a menu entry to modify, answer, delete or mark the comment
as closed.
You can also display the list of comments in pressing nvda+F7, you
can choose to display the list of annotations and browse through the
different comments.
If you don't know the keystroke, when NVDA says "has a comment", you
can have it read in pressing nvda+alt+C.
Enjoy!
Sylvie

Re: Adding comments in Word

Hello Sylvie and Ollie:

I am not sure why moving to the next and previous comments shortcut keys do
not work. I am running the latest desktop version of Word in Office 365. One
way to find out the actual shortcut key is by navigating the ribbon. Press
Alt+R. This will place you in the Review tab of the ribbon, where the
commenting feature resides. Now press Ctrl+right arrow until you hear
comments grouping. On my version of Word, I needed to press it 5 times. Once
there, use the Tab key until you hear previous button. NVDA should also tell
you the shortcut key. Pressing Tab one more time should get you to the Next
button where again, NVDA should let you know the shortcut. On my version of
Word, there are 4 buttons in the comments group of the Review tab. The first
is to insert a comment, the second is to delete a comment, the third is to
move to the previous comment and the fourth is to move to the next comment.

Navigating the ribbon is a great way to learn shortcut key combinations for
future reference.

Rick

Hello Sylvie and Rick,


As a matter of fact it didn't work for him either. I don't know how he
settled the issue; maybe he decided to use footnotes instead of comments, as
he mentioned that to me over the phone.


Thanks to both of you.

Ciao,

The shortcut to go to next and previous comment does not work here.

May be it is different from one language to the other.

Re: Problem with NVDA and some Firefox addons which activate via context menu

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

I'm almost certain that the new Firefox add ons work for mouse and nothing else. I suspect Firefox as older add ons that do still run on the new one still modify the old context menu or present their settings in a different standard menu option.
Of course if you use Waterfox you can use all the old add ons and I'd suggest it works better in most other respects than the new version of Firefox does.

Hi,
For some Firefox addons, e.g. ContextSearch (still some more, but I have already deleted and forget there names lol) mentioned that these addons can be activated via context menu.

However after installing them, I pressed keyboard aplication key to bring up the context menu inside a web page, the menu has no change. Others tested it out that the context menu only works if they use mouse to select something and right click with mouse.

Does it related to how NVDA work? or it is something that Firefo need to fix?
Thanks.

Internet Explorer has a run command so you can run an installer from a web site. With firefox, save the installer, then go to it however you go to any file and run it.

Hello Group,

I have a Windows 7 computer, NVDA 2017, Firefox 52, and am interested
to download and set up SpyBot on my computer, or even if possible, go
to their website and do a scan if that exists anymore as an option.

If I download something, I press save. Then I press alt-r to run the
setup file, but in a lot of cases, I cannot tell that I can proceed to
install the program. I can go to downloads and find the wanted file,
press enter, but it remains as it was before doing alt-r to run. What
step or steps am I missing to advance to installation?
This happened with Avast, Malware Bytes and something else a while
back. Those previous have been deleted. Thanks for the help in
advance.
