How do NVDA users like the recent Chrome accessibility improvements?

Hi!
Great! Indeed it looks like some things got ironed out.
Great that you've noticed some improvements within the week of them being reported on this list! :) 
For example, the document seems to reliably get NVDA's attention after pressing enter in the address field.
Excellent! Actionable feedback drives improvements. 
That's very good news. However, I'm not switching by a long shot.
View it as relative, not absolute switch. It's another tool in toolbox. 
Backspace doesn't speak in edit fields,
Is this *all* or a specific edit field(s)? If ladder, step to reproduce, please. Thanks! 
text I type sometimes gets scrambled
Same as above. Example with repro steps. What was done right before the "scramble" and what indicates that this "scramble" happened? 
because the caret doesn't move
Does NVDA report something indicating this? 
as expected when Chrome thinks it should autocorrect
Is there NVDA feedback for this? 
something, and it still says "unknown
Example with repro steps. 
" with disconcerting frequency
Examples that quantifies this frequency. e.g. I did xyz and it said "unknown" 3/5 times.  
. Moving through a paragraph in an edit field line by line will invariably announce the entire paragraph
Examples and repro steps. 
. And on inbox.google.com it will still announce what previously had focus
Is this when using TAB, NVDA quick-nav, or Inbox keyboard shortcut?  
rather than what just gained it.
Sorry for sounding more disappointed than I wanted to sound, but this is Google's own website with Google's own browser, so I was expecting that all of the basics would be covered.
It's about progress and there is no such thing as perfection... It'd be good if you're able to provide detailed specifics with repro steps using Chrome Send Feedback.
Still, here comes the positive ending note: Signing in works beautifully now. That's something I had been struggling with for a long time so as far as that's concerned I'm delighted.
Great about progress, but let's push forward with ensuring improvements where needed happen for NVDA!
Kind regards,
Felix Grützmacher

Your First NVDA App Module: Session 0 posted, session 1 to be held on June 25, 2016 at NVDACon Korea TT server

 

Hi everyone,

 

Session 0 (overview) from Your First NVDA App Module course is now available:

http://www.nvda-kr.org/files/nvdaAppMod0.mp3

 

Also, session 1 (app module introduction) will be held on June 25, 2016 at 11 AM Pacific (18:00 UTC) at NVDACon Korea TeamTalk Server (nvda-kr.org). You need TT5 (be sure to install TT5 Classic client) and enter the following server information:

 

·         URL: nvda-kr.org

·         TCP: 10333

·         UDP: 10333

·         No username or password required.

·         Channel will be root (nvdachat).

 

If you are interested in learning to write app modules, please think about an app you feel an app module could be useful by session 1. For those who’d like to use this opportunity as a stepping stone for contributing to NVDA Core development, please checkout NVDA source code (git clone –recursive https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda) as we’ll be using app modules in there as examples. For people not interested in coding, don’t worry – a backstage tour will be provided to show you how app modules work behind the scenes. For those who cannot make it, audio recordings of each session will be provided shortly after the session ends.

 

P.S. If you know anyone in your language community who’d like to write app modules, please feel free to invite them. Also, other app module experts are more than welcome to chime in their expertise during course sessions.

 

See you on June 25th.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Blogging with NVDA

Microsoft is 100% dedicated to Edge and has left Internet Explorer behind.
Edge accessibility is improving, but a lot slower than we'd like, so it's recommended to explore third-party browsers (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, etc).
Historically, FIrefox has worked great with NVDA, but Chrome a11y has been rapidly itterating and closing the gap with screen readers.

I am not advocating never using IE11.  There are times when IE11 and Chrome work better with this or that page, perhaps significantly better. 
 
But you may become a more versatile and accomplished user by trying to learn how to work with the changes in Firefox as well as use a much more current and better thought of browser..

windows insider mouse error Version 1607 (OS Build 14366.0)

Oriol Gómez <ogomez.s92@...>
 

hi all,
On the latest insider build there is a problem with NVDA, the mouse
will not move, so you can't access many things including parts of
websites with any browser etc.
Is this a known issue?
How can we fix it? This happens using the latest master snapshot.
ARe the devs aware of this?

I prefer to use a Firefox. Threre are some problems in Chrome, maybe It'll be in Internet explorer.
Also, there is a great plugin for firefox for the blind people. You can easily contact me about those things. I know also another people, who knows maybe more, like me.
We don't know everything, We know only something, or something news.

I use a Wordpress with Mozilla Firefox and NVDA.
It worked a great to me. It is very great, althought some things maybe are not accessible. But You can blogging via the Wordpress very good and I prefer a Firefox.


Re: Pasting problems in Word 2010

Hi Quentin,
Thanks for the detailed explanation. All was as you described it, and
the issue seems to be resolved.
Thanks a ton again!

Hi Bhavya,

When you paste something into word, by default it keeps its original style,
which, if you're copying something from one part of a document to another,
is almost certainly what you want. If you are copying from a web page or
somewhere else you might want to convert to plain text or something else.

In any case, when you paste something, a little hover icon thing appears
and if you press CONTROL, that expands and you can choose the pasting style
you want (the most common one I tend to use is control, then t (note you
can't do it as one keystroke, you need to press control, let go then press
t) to paste as plain text.

So yes, if the next thing you do after pasting is something that involves
control, it looks like that gets grabbed by the paste options.

I don't have Word 2010 in front of me just at the minute, but in Word 2016
at least, if you go into options then "advanced" there is a cut and paste
section and one of the options (it's alt+o but might be safer to tab to it
just in case) is "Show paste options button when content is pasted". If
you uncheck that, you won't get that control issue.

If you do that, you can still get to the extra paste options by going to
the paste option in the ribbon.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: link for Hadley survey

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

The think is though, that apart from a few switches into forms, the form seems to work well for most of us, which points to the issue being something different on your system to most of ours.
What that difference is is hard to say from here of course, its probably only by comparing various pieces of software you run that are not on other computes tha this can be resolved.

Hi, Gene,

I just received an email from the tech at the Hadley help desk. He said he's
had the same problem with different surveys and said it could be the way the
buttons are coded. I had to have my sister fill it out for me.

I don't know what you mean about jumping down your throat. I doubt this is
an antivirus program blocking something. I consider it possible but
unlikely.

Perhaps later today, we'll get an answer as to the komando site I asked
about.

Hi Rosemarie,

I just tried out the survey on three browsers. I used IE11, Chrome and
firefox with no issues. I wish all such form webpages could be as easy. Any
chance it might be the anti virus you are using. Hope Gene won't jump down
my throat about this,*smiles*.

Paul.

Hi,

I tried firefox, the webbie browser and inteernet explorer and none of the
browsers worked for me. None of the screen readers, NVDA and system access
to go worked for me. I think they need to do something about their site.

Press and hold caps lock.  Then press space.  Then release both.  It is a command like any other NVdA command.  To open the NVDA menus, capslock and n while holding the caps lock. 
That's an example of another command.

Thanks,Jene. So capss lock then space. Do I release caps lock then space or
just press caps lock first then hold it while spacing? I guess little things
like that may matter LOL. I actually got it to work once last night after
writing this, and it gave the nice clicking sound and I was all happy but it
was mainly luck. LOL.

Re: NVDA Issues.

Quentin Christensen
 

It definitely sounds like a problem with the control key on the keyboard.

Ok try turning input help on - press NVDA+1 (the 1 above the q).  NVDA will read out any key that you press, but nothing will happen - so if you press the windows key it will announce "Left Windows" but the start menu won't open.

So try pressing and releasing each of your control keys - it should announce "Left control" and "Right control".

Assuming that works, try pressing NVDA+control+f - NVDA should announce "Control+NVDA+f".  If it only reads "NVDA+f" then try pressing three other keys - say alt+shift+s - NVDA should read those three keys out.

The only things I can think of are either a problem with your control key as mentioned previously, or perhaps your keyboard isn't recognising all three keys pressed at once.  Some keyboards are better than others in terms of how many keys they can recognise as being pressed at once, although I don't think I've ever seen one that couldn't recognise three...

Anyway, see how you go with that.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Well, first of all, using windows 7 64 bit pro, nvda 2016.2.1 in fire fox, ie, crome when doing nvda control f all i get is formating info.
does not matter which control key is being used.

I am the only one on the computer as owner So now what?

To be honest I don't understand what you are asking here. We need
context in order to figure out what the issue is. Practical examples
including software running version of windows etc.
I can only say that if you are a non admin user and are using a copy
of nvda installed by another user who has not granted write status to
you you are in effect stuck with the settings as they are or as you
temporarily set them.
I do not understand the control f ref here as this does different
things according to what softwar you are running and attempting to
make it work as an nvda command is going to have clashes.

Ok, i have some questions and hopefully something can be done.
My first question is about the find comand nvda control f the regular
nvda control f for me does not work weather i use a whireless or USB
computer keyboard.
the extended nvda control f works but I am used to the regular way of
doing things; Yes i set up a different hot key  combo but would
perfer to be able to use the regular nvda control f.
on a lap top i also have that key combo works fine.
and no i do not have the laptop layout on in nvda on my desktop.
Now as to the other question every so offten nvda goes into a read
only mode.
That you can not save any settings why is this? and how can you fix it.
The only way i can fix it is by taking the half read only away from
the folder.
but when i do i can not still save settings when shutting nvda down
it will not come back when doing  alt control n.
So please help!!!!!!

Re: Location vs reader

Gene
 

When you use browse mode, you are not using a real cursor.  You are not working directly with the web page  you are working with a reformated version of the page.  I don't know if there is any way to synchronize where you seem to be on screen and where NVDA announces you are.  I don't even know if there is supposed to be any sort of actual synchronization between where the screen shows you to be and where NVDA announces you are.  Others who know more may wish to address this.  Just because browse mode tells you you are at X or Y place on the web page, that doesn't necessarily mean that on the actual web page, that's where you will be shown to be as a sighted user.  The reformated web page you hear in the browse mode buffer isn't even formatted in the same way.  All the links you see at the top of a web page when you use browse mode may actually be a list of links running down the left site of the real web page. 
You may then see other content after that using browse mode.  The real web page may display the same content but to the right of the block of links running down the left side of the page. 
 
This can't be read in logical order so your browser reformats the page. 
 
Some pages do better at knowing where you actually are, some don't  But you are not working with the real web page and there may or may not be good synchronization.  I never rely on a sighted person telling me where something is.  It's irrelevant.  They might tell me something is in the middle of a bar of links on the right side of a page.  To me, that may really be near the bottom of the web page, as it is shown to me. 
 
The order of a lot of web pages as a blind person sees it is roughly this:
Links at the top, other content below, links at the bottom.
For a sighted person, the page appears roughly as:
A bar of links running down the left, other content to the right, then a bar of links to the right.

It's just that NVDA seems to read far from where is visible and I don't get why it doesn't all stay together. LOL. If it tells me I'm on one you tube link and I'm really on another it's a pain. Not sure the box will help with t hat, but if it helps my husband it's cool. We'll just have to try it out and see. Thanks to all. It's not usually an article so much as a website with pictures. If we're looking at a dragon or gargoyle pendant or whatever, I can only get so much from the description people put up on sites so if it sounds cool I want him to look at it to see if we want it because he knows the style I like and he likes the same so yeah...but like I wanted to show him a gargoyle pendant and he was seeing like five pendants above where i was so yeah we'll try this out and see how it works.

Also with the focus add on, if you press the nvda key + the tab key it should tell you if it is on screen or off screen where you can not see it, then you might have to scroll to see where it is.

Okay so if I am trying to show my husband something I'm looking at online sometimes NVDA will read one thing but the screen is showing something else, usually way above. But it does the same thing to me a little if I click on a you tube link I want or where NVDA tells me it is, it will end up on another link. So it acts up worst for us on Amazon when it comes to NVDA  reading one thing and my husband seeing another then for me on you tube it's hit and miss. LOL. Any thoughts?
