Use the restart option of your laptop to see if that will fix the issue

Subject: [nvda] Windows key plus M suddenly stopped working

 

Hi,

For some reason from last few hours, the nvda command windows key plus

M to go to the desktop has stopped working for me. When I quit nvda

and restart it again, I am able to go to the desktop. But as soon as I

click on start button, I am not able to access the desktop. I am sure

I have accidently disabled some command which is why I am facing this

issue. I use a laptop with windows 10. Would wait for your

suggestions.

 

Best,

 

Manoj

Long time since I did this but I think you need to hold down the control key for these boxes. I find it irritating that the world seems unable to standardise on how combo boxes work even in the same form sometimes!

Subject: [nvda] dealing with combo box expansion


Just made a donation to NVDA on their donation web page. After entering the amount I wanted to donate and picking using a credit card instead of Paypal I got to a combo box for selecting the country you are in. I hit the alt space bar to expand the box but when I arrowed down one time it closed and did not give me the chance to get to the United States. Had to have sighted help using a physical mouse to get the combo box to the correct country. How should I have accessed this combo box?
Thanks

In the UK the cost of Jaws is more than it is in the states as well. which I think is daylight robbery myself. I have a registered copy from an offer last year, but they will not even let me have the other half of a year of 2019, they want me to start paying again. Sorry whatever the company is called this week, I am a pensioner and do not want to spend money on Jaws just now.

I've been using NVDA for over three years and love it.

Since I am an unemployed home user, it beats forking over $90 yearly and
NVDA does an awesome job supporting the software I use, iTunes, both
Firefox and Thunderbird, Office 365, very well. To its credit, Narrator
is nice for an accessible Windows 10 install and is making a lot of
improvements; however, I also run Windows Insider and don't see it
replacing a full-blown screen reader for the foreseeable future which is
fine with me.

The point is, a bit like voice over on a Mac, its fine for 'official ' applications but it does not seem to have any way to fiddle with it to make it work on third party software where access is not very good. Narrator seems to assume everyone uses Windows recommended systems.

Wow!

In 1809, I am using Narrator to do the following tasks!

One: Do everything with MS Edge and Chrome!

Two: I do everything in the mail app with Narrator!

Three: I use Narrator with Waterfox to have it describe pictures on Facebook to me,

Four:

I use Narrator with the following Windows apps:

The news app, The twitter app, The weather app, The calculator, and more.

Narrator is so fast in Edge, that I have the best browsing experience.

In scan mode, I can use all of the navigation short cut keys that are in NVDA or JAWS.

Narrator works in Google Docs and Google Drive in MS Edge without a hitch.

This is just some of what I do with Narrator in Windows 1809, and with the latest insider build.

What you said about Narrator is completely untrue, and I can send you a video and you can hear what I do with Narrator with your own ears.

MS Edge and Narrator, is probably the best Internet experience I have.

Close to that, is Narrator in Chrome!

I am using Narrator more than JAWS now.

Take care, and please say what you have tried to do with Narrator without making a blanket statement like that without even knowing what you are talking about.

Read the Narrator guide, and if you have Windows 10 1809 build, you would not say what you did if you really tried to use Narrator.

One cannot access the “Show Desktop” button from within the System Tray, or Notification area as it is now called, using arrow keys, because the “Show Desktop” button is not part of the Notification area.  One must use the Tab key to get there.
This is the same as using the Tab key to move from the Taskbar button area to the Notification area and so on.

Just tried that under Win10 Home, Version 1809, 64-bit and that works to navigate to it.

Visually it is the last button (object, whatever you want to call them) in the System Tray, AKA Notification Area.  I was surprised it wasn't eventually arrived on via right arrowing after a WinKey+B strike.

When it comes right down to it WinKey+D or WinKey+M are faster to achieve the goal of getting focus on the Desktop.

Before Windows 7, there was no such button, and a mouse user would have to minimize each open window individually as described by Brian.

Just played with something I hadn't ever done before when using WinKey+D.

If you use WinKey+D to go to the desktop, and do not open any additional windows while you're there, it toggles you right back to your former arrangement before having used it.

If, however, you open any new window or windows, those supplant the arrangement as far as the windows go, and hitting WinKey+D toggles back to the Desktop and those newly opened windows.

So WinKey+D is a toggle back to the windows arrangement prior to your having gone to the desktop if and only if you do not open any additional windows while on the desktop.  Since that's probably what any one of us is going to the desktop for most of the time falling back to point and click or ALT+TAB afterward actually makes sense.

Re: Windows key plus M suddenly stopped working

FYI —
The “Show Desktop” button can be accessed via keyboard by tabbing through the desktop items.
For example, use Windows + B to access the Notification area, and then press the Tab key.  From the Desktop, one can press Shift + Tab, and you will get there.
From anywhere on the Desktop, one can repeatably press Tab and move clockwise through the desktop and taskbar items.  Conversely, one can repeatably press Shift + Tab and move counter-clockwise through the same.

I'll just reiterate what Brad has already mentioned, that there is a very thin, almost invisible button at the far right of the taskbar, to the right of the clock/calendar, that NVDA announces as "Show Desktop" but ONLY if you mouse hover over it.  I cannot get to it by using WinKey+B and right arrowing.

It's interesting, but most sighted users get back to the desktop using what has to be the slowest and least elegant way:  minimizing their open windows one by one.  It's not that everyone does this, but I see it far more often than using WinKey+D, WinKey+M, or the Show Desktop button.  Point and click is not always anywhere near to the quickest or easiest way to accomplish something, but it's the one thing that every sighted Windows user knows and knows very, very well.  Those of us who are old school, meaning having used Windows since there was a Windows, often know more keyboard shortcuts, but even then that's not reliably so.

Hey dear NVDA users Quary about NVDA with excel.

Meet modi
 

Dear NVDA users I am useing NVDA with Windows 10 Dekstop computer I have problem when i add Entire row in excel thiserror i paste billow.
I am useing excel version  2010
To prevent possible loss of data, Excel cannot shift nonblank cells off of the worksheet.  Select another location in which to insert new cells, or delete data from the end of your worksheet.

If you do not have data in cells that can be shifted off of the worksheet, you can reset which cells Excel considers nonblank.  To do this, press CTRL+End to locate the last nonblank cell on the worksheet.  Delete this cell and all cells between it and the last row and column of your data then save.
I hope my problem solve as soon as possible.


Re: video editting

Manoj Govindraj <manmusical9@...>
 

Hi Quentin,
Per your suggestion I downloaded avidemux and it is really wonderful.
I have a question, I wanted to cut the first 5 mintes of a video. So I
chose marker A at the beginning of the video and marker B at the point
up to which I wanted the video to be cut. Then i gave the cut command
and this is where I am stuck. Like in audacity when we select the
start and the end point of the audio to be cut, we then open a new
audacity window and paste it and thus you have 2 split audio files. Do
we have something similar in avidemux? But it indeed seems to be
perfectly accessible with nvda and would work really well for someone
like me who is interested in just basic video editing like cutting and
joining files.

Best,

Manoj

Again they don't have a list of keystrokes but
again you can access features from the menu which lists the keystrokes.


Kind regards

Re: Problems With NVDA

What browser are you using, or what browsers are you using if more than 1? Also what versions if you know them?

Hello:
I am having problems with my NVDA screen reader.
The screen reader is just too slow when I am browsing the internet.
When I am doing some other work like word processing or reading
documents off line, it is not slow.
This problem has nothing to do with the websites, as I don't have this
slow problems online with JAWS. I use a demo copy of JAWS.
Secondly, when I visit a website, or even some times when I launch a
web browser like internet explorer or firefox, I hear "internet
explorer unknown" or "firefox unknown" and the screen goes quiet, and
when I press the arrow down key, that is what I keep hearing. Some
times, when I am on a site, or trying to open a site, the screen
reader crashes, and disables the computer itself. I just have to shut
it down, and then restart it all over again.
Does anyone understand the problem I am having with my NVDA screen reader?
I use windows7 32 bit on a laptop.
I have the latest update of the screen reader.
Hope to read a helpful response.
I am Ibrahim.


Re: Is NVDA Really Dying?

Well you could ask that question for a thousand things. Over the years people have asked if RSS was dying or dead, if blogging was dying, if podcasts were I think you get the drift. It's an old, tired, internet meme.
NVDA is still being actively developed and used. I'd say it isn't any less dead or alive than anything else. It isn't exactly a living thing, after all.


Re: video editting

and it depends on what type of video you want to edit.  My TV PVR uses the .ts video format, and some older video editors don't play nice with it, like avidemux for example. and some free video editors like virtual dub are incompatible with the format altogether, well, the last time I checked, it was.
You might get more milage from a program like video redo, I've checked it out, and it seems to work quite well with NVDA, but I haven't fully tested it though.

There is a free "lite" version, or a paid version (with demo) which has a few extra features such as customising keystrokes).

All the functions (or at least all those I've used) have keystrokes.  I just went looking and although they don't have a handy list of default keystrokes, you can access most features from the menu, and the keystroke for each command is listed with it.

Avidemux is another one I have found with lots of keystrokes.  This one is free: http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/  Again they don't have a list of keystrokes but again you can access features from the menu which lists the keystrokes.

Re: Windows key plus M suddenly stopped working

I can get to it in Windows 7 by going to the desktop and then shift tabbing.
Just tried that under Win10 Home, Version 1809, 64-bit and that works to navigate to it.

Visually it is the last button (object, whatever you want to call them) in the System Tray, AKA Notification Area.  I was surprised it wasn't eventually arrived on via right arrowing after a WinKey+B strike.

When it comes right down to it WinKey+D or WinKey+M are faster to achieve the goal of getting focus on the Desktop.
