I've never done this myself, however, I copied these instructions for
reference. I didn't write down who gave these instructions, but they
are very accurate and apparently worked, that's why I saved them. I
hope they help you.
Blaster

The Following is the process for setting up a NVDA remote session.
First, take jaws out of the equasion. Both you and the other party
need to have NVdA installed. You also need the NVDA remote add-on.
To establish a remote connection, your helper will need to do the following.


1. Go to the NVDA menu and arrow down to tools.

Expand the tools submenu with the right arrow key,
then arrow down to remote.

Expand the remote submenu with the right arrow key.

The first option will be connect.
Press enter. You will land on 2 radio buttons that say client and server.

Choose client which is the first button.

Tab once and you will land on another radio button with 2 choices,
control another computer, and allow my computer to be controlled.

Your helper will choose the button, control another computer.

Tab once and enter the NVDA remote server. It is:

www.nvdaremote.com

Tab once more. You will be in a field that asks you for a key.

You can either choose your own or have the system generate one for you.

I usually just choose a simple 4 digit key. Next, tab to the ok button.

Now what you have to do is pretty much the same,

except when you get to the radio buttons that say, control another
computer, or allow my computer to be controlled, arrow down to the
second button.

Then tab and type in the remote server name:

www.nvdaremote.com

Tab once and enter the same key that your helper chose.

Tab to the ok button and press enter.

You should hear a tone and you should be connected.

Your helper can toggle between controlling their computer and yours
with the f11 key.

I hope this helps, kind of a long winded explanation but I wanted to
get all the steps down.

locked See On Chat: Survey evaluation of learning experience in higher education for blind and visually impaired individuals

 

A graduate student has asked us to post a survey for those who are blind or visually impaired, and who use (or have used) screen readers in the context of higher education.  Since I know how difficult it is to find respondents for niche surveys such as this, I am posting a pointer to it here for those who may be interested in learning more, and perhaps participating:

Re: Reading subtitles in Netflix with NVDA

JM Casey
 

HI.
I read the subtitles on a braille display. It isn't automatic so it means I have to really concentrate on followign the dialogue with my ears as well as my fingers even if I can't understand the language. It works ok most of the time, except in some films with so much dialogue that it's hard to keep up.
Granted it's a bit of work and after my former wife and I split up I haven't been watching as many non-english movies. Well, I watch a lot of Spanish and Italian horror and exploitation movies and those often have english dubs.

I don't really know anything about Netflix, and this might not be avilable for some of the new shows there, but it might well be for older ones and movies. I usually just find a file with an .srt extension on the internet, and download it to my braille display device. It's not the best arrangement as the subtitles don't move with the dialogue as they are supposed to, but it's not so bad once you get the hang of it; you just have to focus pretty hard. I'd much rather do this than listen to a synth or a human reading the subtitles, talking over the actual actors in the film!

at the page you recommended.





I can find audiodescriptions without diffilulties. I'm currently

La Casa de Papel in Spanish, which I'd started watching last year, but

now I discovered audiodescriptions, and it's a great thing...

Re: NVDA the miracle of modern assistive technology

NVDA  in my opinion is a best screenreader not only it is free and very well developed but also has a massive community  that is really helpful. I forced my friends moved to NVDA and they don't want to look back at the times that they used jaws screenreader.   I agree Microsoft narrator improved quite a bit,  I just don't understand  why narrator doesn't have the same shortcuts like NVDA does.

Lastly does anyone know of any add-on to move all messages from one subject as in the threads to create one combined email.

You don't need an add-on to do it, not really. On the "order by" (or something like that) menu, you'll find an option to group the messages on a certain subject in only one thread.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA the miracle of modern assistive technology

Hi all. In 2006, when Michael Currant conceived the idea of developing
an open source screen reader to neutralize the high cost of commercial
screen readers, and when he and James Teh founded NVAccess, The feeling
going around was that sooner or later, this upstart in the screen reader
industry would shortly be gobbled up by the more recognized players.
Well, Window eyes has gone down the proverbial plug hole. SaraTech and
Dolphin has gone almost quiet, and the two left standing proud and tall
in the boxing ring is JFW and NVDA. These are the facts, not mere
conjecture, and the facts are clear enough to see. Why am I writing
this? Financial reward is a big factor in motivating a company to work
towards improving a product. However, the demand for immediate rewards
can also lead to a product being rushed out in the hope that it will
satisfy the needs of the customers as well as filling up the company's
coffers. But hope is one thing, delivery is another vital factor. I do
not have to revise the recent debacle experienced by the end users of
Windows 1809. Jaws is now into it's 2019 version. Yet their new driver
is not as stable as it should be and there are complains about it from
users and Jaws scripters alike.

And what about NVDA? O yes! NVDA does have it's quirks, No software can
avoid that. But there is an almost daily alpha version released that
tries to fix reported issues. Then we must not leave out a dedicated
community of users who do their very best to help in the form of advise
and tutorials, some even dedicating part of their website to put up
materials for reference for those who need them. And then there are
those from the community who help with NVDA's development, Translators
who help translate NVDA itself and it's numerous addons into the many
languages, and the addon developers who develop addons that make NVDA
more than just a mere screen reader, All these done in their own spare
time and without the apparent rewards in dollars. Which reminds me, Is
there a clock addon for JFW? Which brings me back to motivation. I did
earlier allude to the fact that monetary reward is a big incentive. But
you know, humanity can be a bigger incentive than finance. For most
blind people, and especially for those living in the poorer countries,
just getting a working computer makes a dent in their pockets. Add the
cost of a screen reader and the dent could be astronomical. NVDA has
provided us from rich and poor regions of the world with another
alternative, and that in itself is a modern miracle. And, most
important, NVDA, as I said earlier is not just a mere screen reader. It
goes way beyond basic screen reading tasks like browsing the web or
checking emails or formatting documents. It works seemlessly with
programming IDES like visual Studio, and Android Studio, just to name a
few, and then musicians use it in association with DAWS like Reaper to
make music as a hobby or as a profession, and broadcasters benefit from
addons developed for Station playlist studio. I use both Jaws and NVDA,
and I had to pay almost 2000 Singapore dollars to get my new version of
Jaws. And after all that, I had to pay for some scripts by independent
Jaws Scripters to make jaws work with some applications. NVDA is open
source and free, it's addons are free, and therein lies the difference.

How then can a thread about NVDA dying be ever posted is way beyond my
understanding. Negative posts like this are rather disturbing because
it could put a huge dent into the efforts of all concerned with NVDA's
development. And one must not forget the extraneous update routines put
out by Microsoft which not only affects NVDA but JFW as well. Pardon
this long and rambling email, but I felt that I had to pen my thoughts
onto paper, as it were, just to remind ourselves that we do owe these
people dedicated to ever improving NVDA a huge debt, and to remind us
all that as long as this great effort continues, NVDA will be far from
dying a slow death or disappearing into the ether. To me, NVDA is, and
always will be a modern miracle. Cheers!

Tab to the list of folders. If you want to create a folder at the same level as Inbox, Sent etc then arrow up or down to the name of your e-mail account then right clik and find new folder. If you want to create a subfolder for example in the Inbox then right clik at Inbox and find new subfolder.

This is entirely dependent on whether an applications/menu key is actually available on the machine's keyboard or not, which Windows knows about.

If it is, and if there is an Extended Context Menu in addition to the Standard Context Menu, then the applications/menu key will bring up the former while SHIFT+F10 will bring up the latter.

If there is but a single Standard Context Menu both keys will bring that up.

If there is an Extended and Standard Context Menu, but the machine does not have an applications/menu key, then SHIFT+F10 defaults to the Extended Context Menu, as there is no other way to get to it.

A true right click, in my experience, brings up the Extended Context Menu if such exists, which is why I recommend that laptop users not disable their mousepads, but instead cover the part that would cause the mouse to move.   There are significant advantages to having direct access to a true left click and right click rather than emulated ones.

Re: NVDA and Zotero

Hello,

I wil play with it again today but thought I tried that and found no buttons. It may be that I am not successfully focusing the 2nd citation. 

To others asking about the application, it  is useful in academic writing and given the number of students I have seen post to this list I can imagine a guide would be helpful. It would also be nice for those not on the list who get no help from their own colleges and universities but run a search or use NVDA and look  for NVDA tutorials related to being a student. 

Warmly,
Sally

hi,

The buttons are only in the classical dialogue. You need it to show you the classical dialogue in the multiple sitations mode. In object nav, you will hear buttons, such as 24 of 14 button. Presing the first one on the left will add second citation, while other will remove it. You need to have focus on the second citation you want to add first though.

Hello, 

I haven't cited any books yet so don't have an answer. Would you like me to ask a librarian and see if their instructions help?

For your solution to the multiple references, I see no buttons. Are you in the classic citation view or no? What operating system are you using? I would love to figure this out with your help.

As a side note, I would really like if we could pool our expertise and write up a guide for Gene'S website. I feel strongly that academic Programs like this are just as important to explain and support as more basic ones.

Cheers,
Sally

hi,

There is a solution for multiple citations. There is a numbered button, click one after moving focus to the citation you want to add after the first, and it will add it. IOne of them will add, while the other removes.

I have another problem. Do you know how to change a book entry to book section, and then add authors and editors? When I change the editor field to an author, or vice versa, wrong author is changed.

Hi all,

To revive this thread, I can give a partial answer to the original question and need to ask one of my own.

If you go to the zotero desktop application and under preferences find citation then word processor and check the "use classic citation  checkbox, you will get a dialogue in word that is 99% accessible. 

The only thing that has not worked for me is citing multiple works in a single in text citation. In the classic citation dialogue there is an add button that NVDA does not see with any cursor and in the default dialogue I hear only a string of HTML code rather than "unknown." 

i have posted to the zotero forum and will let you know what i hear back. 

Does anyone else have experience here with zotero or any other free citation manager? 

It was a huge help to have this on my last paper and I'd like to see it work or have access to something equivalent for academic writing. 

Warmly,
Sally

Re: OT Mozila Thunderbird

Gene
 

Here is a discussion of information pertaining to the current discussion.  it presents some important information many people don't know or don't know in an organized, detailed manner.
 
F10 by itself duplicates what the alt command does in terms of moving focus to the menu bar.  Shift f10 does the rough equivalent of a right click and opens a context menu if there is one to open where you are.  The menu that opens doesn't always have all the commands that using the context menu key does, which is to the left of the right control on standard desktop keyboards. 
 
Shift context menu key may open a context menu with more items than just pressing the context menu key. 
 
It is important to know how to do the equivalent of right click from the keyboard.  At times, you find commands you don't find elsewhere and often, commands are conveniently placed in one menu that are more scattered in the full menus.  Also, in ribbon programs, the context menu may offer a faster and more convenient way to get to some commands than using the ribbon.

Highlight the tree view of folders and right click and under the
