Re: Groups.io accessibility enhancements.

 

Robert,

              Good for you for doing the grunt work of communicating with Mark about accessibility issues.  He tends to be quite responsive when he can be.  What follows is something I recently sent a client who was facing the same sort of issues with a corporate website.  It should also be useful here.

         I wanted to make sure to send you what follows.  It is not that you will necessarily use any of it directly, but these are powerful pieces of information to pass along when you're working with any organization where the goal is increasing the accessibility of their webpages.
 
           The first is the WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool:  
 
http://wave.webaim.org/
On this webpage you supply the web address of the webpage you wish to have analyzed from an accessibility perspective.  The tool identifies all (or at least most) of the page coding errors that restrict accessibility and gives direct instructions on how to fix them.  It can be invaluable information for web developers who have never taken accessibility into account and in showing them easy ways to do so going forward.
 
             There is also a form and checklist at the webaim.org site that can help web programmers:
 
              The formal conventions document (or one of the major ones, there are a couple of others, and it makes reference to them) is the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines which are available here:  
 
https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/
 
               These are all things you might want to pass along not only to tech geeks, but to those who are working with them to create new web content.  Even the non-technically minded can find it enlightening to run WAVE against a webpage that's really accessible to a screen reader user then do the same for one that's not.

Dear all.
I'd like you to know about something. this morning, as I pressed
insert+w to check the weather it just said: "sorry! I cannot receive

with the addon.
take care


Re: Groups.io accessibility enhancements.

 

Hi,

I think it’d be best to let Mark talk to some experts, including Marco Zehe (I think he is part of our group; Marco is a quality assurance engineer from Mozilla and a famous name in web accessibility).

Cheers,

Joseph

For the past few days I've been emailing mark, the creator of this site, and letting him know about some unlabeled edit fields and otherwise that need fixing. To make a long story short, the wiki for all groups should  have better labels, hashtag creation should work better for keyboards, and, finally, some settings options and otherwise should work better with keyboards. Unfortunately, he does not use a screen reader, so is there a tool or similar that can look through a site's code and attach labels to missing form elements? Because it's a lot of work to go through page by page! I plan on writing him about the, compose a new topic, page next, and, I also plan on telling him to add a heading, at the start of every topics page, where the list of topics are at? Does anyone know how he can turn that side menu into a navigation landmark? The menu that has admin, wiki, calendar, ETC? the support email is below if any of you have any suggestions but I'd suggest making them actionable suggestions because he does not test with a screen reader.

Goldwave isn't free and there is no reason to use it for simple recording and editing.  I'll look at the program I'm going to send tomorrow and make sure what the options are.  The options may be all you need.  Or, you may need to learn to change sound card settings to record using a line-in input.  But just what do you want to record?  Do you want to record from a physical radio or record a radio stream that is streaming online?  What sorts of other things do you want to record?

Hi.

I am using audacity fine here with windows 10. You need to go to preferences, then arrow up/down to devices. tab and make sure your host is set to windows wasapi. tab once more and set your playback device to your speakers. tab for a third time and make sure the recording device is set using the loopback option, for example speakers loopback. then press OK. that should enable to you press R when in audacity and it will start recording. when you're finished, press space to stop then space again to start playback. works like a charm with the latest version of audacity.

cheers,

Mo.

I think Virtual Recorder is one of the easiest recorders to use. I don't agree with Brian about having to edit the beginning and end of recordings. You can set up keyboard shortcuts with VR and have it running in the background. The Record and Stop shortcut keys sound a bleep when pressed so you know they are engaged and by temporarily switching NVDA into silent mode, with a bit of practice, you can get clean recordings.

As for stereo mix not showing in your Sound Card settings, I remember a while ago having my stereo mix disappear from the list of devices on the recording tab and after doing some googling, I found out that it can be disabled. Try checking in Device manager, Audio inputs and outputs and see if it is there and enabled.

If you have books and want them in an artificial voice but do not want to do it at the speed you read at. there is a program called Dspeech which can do this. It is basically a text editor and a routine that records the spoken file very very fast. I know there are other programs like this around and one issue is that there will be strange words and breaks in any file that make it sound slightly odd but you can for example download the sapi version of Espeak if you like that or use any other sapi voice.

However for capturing what you are doing or recording audio from youtube then I find virtual recorder is very good.

Yes increasingly nvda is not actually confirming what has been opened as if it missed the command to say it. I wonder, does the person have the 3D sounds add on installed or something that interrupts the speaking in some way?
The NVDA speech can be muted by hitting certain keys, but also overwritten by some other speech or affected by a mute of a sound card due to driver issues.

You should easily be able to confirm where you are. I don't use Windows 10 but one or both of these commands should tell you directly or indirectly where you are:
Try NVDA key t for the title bar. Also try NVDA key tab, which reads the current control you are on.

Hey guys, Molly here again.

For some reason 99 percent of the time Nvda doesn't announce that I'm on the start menu when I press the windows logo key. I press it and Nvda says nothing at all. It's happening on both machines. It's frustrating because I'm needing to access different folders and I want to search for them using the start menu.

Do you have any ideas on what could be causing this?

Running windows 10 home, build 17763 on both machines.

Thanks.

Goldwave would be your best bet. In its microphone section it has a loopback

feature that will allow you to point it to your sound card and record from
it.

Hello. Does anyone know of any audio recording software that works with
NVDA with no mic attached to the computer? I want to record a lot of
internal stuff from my computer with no mic attached. I have tried
audacity with everything they suggested when reading the user guide to
make it work no such luck since am using windows 10. Lets just say if I
want to record a radio station or anything from my computer what type of
program could I use with NVDA? I have heard of total recorder and gold
wave would those programs work since I do have everything up to date and I

did check in the recording section and I have no stereo mics on my sound
card. Have any of you used sound tap or any apps with in the app store to

get anything to work with NVDA? I have tried everything with the line in
jack nothing. Or maybe I am not setting it up right. Any suggestions would

be excellent. Thank you.
