Longstanding issue with NVDA reading lines that end with numbers

Sile
 

Hello


I have noticed for a long time that NVDA takes a long time to read lines that start with words but end with numbers, e.g.:


Order number 4977509

Is this a known issue?  It is particularly noticeable in plain text files.

This is the ini file I have used so far.

Every few days or so maybe every day or 2 you will have to copy this

oh well.

Re: I can't select radio buttons on a webpage using NVDA

Dan Beaver
 

I have a very similar problem on the site:


lds.org


There are 2 lists of items at the top of the page.  NVDA doesn't even announce them as links or buttons as it used to do.  I suspect this is due to some changes to the site but it seems it should still work since other links on the same page work just fine.


This has started over the past few releases of NVDA and has been getting worse.  I just noticed how bad it has gotten today.


Any improvements in this would be very greatly appreciated.

Re: A query I meant to post earlier about windows messages

 

Please don't be scared about icons.

I have a client I service regularly, that said he had a lot of spyware and things on the net told him to download all these programs and buy into all sorts of things which he did, but had a lot more issues and still the same messages.

After clearing his system I got down to all the messages they were his notifications crying out ofr attention, if this is from action centre, opening action centre should list you the notification, where it came from, etc if it needs work it will tell all.

hitting enter on that can help to open it however I don't always trust
windowsaction/ notiffication centre.

For example, during a clock sync the power dropped off and the router died.

I got it back every thing was out of sync, windows was alegal, everything
wouldn't open and everything was screaming at me.

It was waterfox that alerted me to the fact everything was backwards and
pointed me at my clock, which I changed.

Then everything worked.

But the messages stayed, and I had to tell action centre to ignore them
till they died.

On a similar note, notifications can report a problem, but in a criptic way
and after I have found and solved it.

I was upgrading one of my security/ backup programs.

And immediately I got a notification that I was unsafe, recomending a full
reset and reformat.

I was aware the thing was broken, and continued updating.

After this, I had to clear things.

I have had it say for example that I am using pirated windows, and my
accounts are not signing in and that a whole host of things are screwed and
that I should reset or something.

Yet when I have logged into where I need to go to check, not only are they
not showing no problems but checking on the server side shows that they
never existed.

Or existed for such a little time it didn't matter.

The only time that its ever really worked was when I was updating a
business server for my uncle and the system kept crashing, at that time,
windows put up the usual video card issue with the drivers crashing out.

A small note put that it was a bug with the driver, and to open a website
for instructions, where I found the manufacturer had added to the action
note that I needed a new driver and got a direct link to it.

But that was before things got weird.

Now, I do glance at notifications centre just like I would glance at the
paper, but 99.9% of the time I just clear them, in most cases its fixed,
not a problem or if it is, I can handle it without any issue.

Hello Maxx and Else,

A basic question missing in the conversation so far is: Has the built-in pop-up blockin function in Google Chrome being turned off?

1. Click the Customize and control Google Chrome menu (the three horizontal bars in the upper right corner)
2. Select Settings.
3. At the bottom, click "Advanced Settings"... .
4. Under Privacy, click "Content Settings".
5. Make sure the box "Pop-ups and Redirects Blocked" is checked.




Re: A query I meant to post earlier about windows messages

 

Well in my case I follow it, open things up but nothing is actually wrong, I sign in and check and its fine.

Of course, if my microsoft account doesn't work its not like I really care, microsoft accounts have only 2 uses now and apart from os upgrades and apps, there is onedrive which I just don't even use, and a few extras which I don't use I don't signin at login, and I don't really care.

I confirm that if you uncheck report object descriptions in the NVDA settings the double announcing of menu items stops. Not sure what unchecking this setting causes overall in other situations.

Re: NVDA and Word 2016

This is a known issue though I'm not sure whether anyone has tried to tackle it lately: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8390

Running NVDA 2018-4 beta 2 on a win 10 computer and using Word 2016.
I am finding the use of the ribbon menues very workable.  However one
little annoying issue I am having is the repeat of entries in the menu.
For example if I go to the file menu and arrow down the entries it will
say everything twice.  It will say open open or save save etc.  Is there
some setting to fix this issue?

What sort of message and where?  An e-mail message?  What does it tell you to do?  Without more information this sounds like classic phishing.  Microsoft isn't going to monitor how many millions of e-mail programs and let users know if something is incorrectly set.

Well Maxy do as it says. Maybe a setting got messed up somewhere. I get this sometimes and I do fix it. I’m assuming you are using the Mail app?

Along that line I am getting a message every few days telling me that Microsoft needs to fix my email.  My email is working fine.  I guess they never heard the expression, if it aint broke don't fix it.  What am I saying? Microsoft is well known  for fixing things that aint broke.

hitting enter on that can help to open it however I don't always trust windowsaction/ notiffication centre.

For example, during a clock sync the power dropped off and the router died.

I got it back every thing was out of sync, windows was alegal, everything wouldn't  open and everything was screaming at me.

It was waterfox that alerted me to the fact everything was backwards and pointed me at my clock, which I changed.

Then everything worked.

But the messages stayed, and I had to tell action centre to ignore them till they died.

On a similar note, notifications can report a problem, but in a criptic way and after I have found and solved it.

I was upgrading one of my security/ backup  programs.

And immediately I got a notification that I was unsafe, recomending a full reset and reformat.

I was aware the thing was broken, and continued updating.

After this, I had to clear things.

I have had it say for example that I am using pirated windows, and my accounts are not signing in and that a whole host of things are screwed and that I should reset or something.

Yet when I have logged into where I need to go to check, not only are they not showing no problems but checking on the server side shows that they never existed.

Or existed for such a little time it didn't matter.

The only time that its ever really worked was when I was updating a business server for my uncle and the system kept crashing, at that time, windows put up the usual video card issue with the drivers crashing out.

A small note put that it was a bug with the driver, and to open a website for instructions, where I found the manufacturer had added to the action note that I needed a new driver and got a direct link to it.

But that was before things got weird.

Now, I do glance at notifications centre just like I would glance at the paper, but 99.9% of the time I just clear them, in most cases its fixed, not a problem or if it is, I can handle it without any issue.
