Re: Possible Bug with 2019.1 - crashes Windows Explorer

Yes it can happen and has happened before in windows 7, but I put it down to the general flakyness of Explorer. It normally comes back but forgets where you were. I particularly like the bit about then its been reported it says when a fix is found you will be informed. as this has been happening for years, I feel it will not be found.
As to whether its nvda or not, I really do not know as I cannot tell, but it did it in Jaws only last week, so maybe not.

Subject: [nvda] Possible Bug with 2019.1 - crashes Windows Explorer


Hi,
When NVDA v2019.1 is running, moving the focus/mouse pointer into a Windows Explorer window, with the physical mouse, causes Windows Explorer to crash and restart. The exact message is "Windows Explorer has stopped working. Windows can try to restart the program." and there is a Restart button. This does not happen when NVDA is turned off. And I'm pretty sure this wasn't happening to me in any of the prior versions of NVDA. It also does not happen when using the keyboard to navigate Windows Explorer. Only with the physical mouse.

I can replicate this every time i try. I thought maybe i messed something up with the update so I uninstalled NVDA entirely and reinstalled version 2019.1. I'm running a Windows 7 laptop.

Steps to replicate.
1. With NVDA on, click the Windows Start button
2. When the Start Menu opens move the mouse into it like you are going to select a program to run.
3. For me, as soon as the mouse moves off the Start button and travels into the Windows Explorer window a pop up box appears with crash error.

Again, if i press the Windows key and then use the arrows to navigate the Start Menu nothing happens. The crash only occurs with the mouse movement.

Another interesting test is I open the Start Menu with the keyboard, navigate to a program with the arrow keys and then move the mouse into the menu using NVDA + / and then press enter. No error. Only when i move the mouse pointer with touchpad or mouse.

Maybe it's just something quirky within my machine. I dunno.

In other words, if I go to http://nvaccess.org, is there a section so I can click to go direct to this link?

I have to have the latest goldwave add on here as I just checked for updates and there are none.
I so far have seen no issues in the latest nvda. The long running loss of focus when testing the length unless you switch away and back again is still present but we know this is goldwave not saying its changed things.

On the old computer, I could simply arrow my way through the list and use the tab key to move to the fields that allow me to do a new search. Now I have to use the number pad to navigate through the list of found passages and I cannot tab out of that list.

I’d like to change the way NVDA reads information about a cell when moving through a spreadsheet in Excel.

 

Now NVDA reads the information within the cell, then the coordinates, then the column/row header info.

 

I’d like to have it read column/row headers before cell coordinates. I tried turning off cell coordinates and that messed up the reading of column headers. They no longer were read if cell coordinates were turned off.

 

I need to play with this a bit more as I changed a couple other things as well and now need to narrow this down but should tables be set to on or off? I currently have them set for on with Excel and off with everything else.

Possible Bug with 2019.1 - crashes Windows Explorer

Pettyjohn, Chris G. (FTC)
 

Hi,
 When NVDA v2019.1 is running, moving the focus/mouse pointer into a Windows Explorer window, with the physical mouse, causes Windows Explorer to crash and restart. The exact message is "Windows Explorer has stopped working.  Windows can try to restart the program." and there is a Restart button.  This does not happen when NVDA is turned off.  And I'm pretty sure this wasn't happening to me in any of the prior versions of NVDA. It also does not happen when using the keyboard to navigate Windows Explorer.  Only with the physical mouse. 

I can replicate this every time i try. I thought maybe i messed something up with the update so I uninstalled NVDA entirely and reinstalled version 2019.1.  I'm running a Windows 7 laptop.

Steps to replicate.
1. With NVDA on,  click the Windows Start button
2. When the Start Menu opens move the mouse into it like you are going to select a program to run. 
3. For me, as soon as the mouse moves off the Start button and travels into the Windows Explorer window  a pop up box appears with crash error.

Again, if i press the Windows key and then use the arrows to navigate the Start Menu nothing happens.  The crash only occurs with the mouse movement.

Another interesting test is I open the Start Menu with the keyboard, navigate to a program with the arrow keys and then move the mouse into the menu using NVDA + / and then press enter.  No error.  Only when i move the mouse pointer with touchpad or  mouse.

Maybe it's just something quirky within my machine. I dunno.


Re: Request: require assistance make NVDA read the status bar in file explorer of windows ten

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

F6 will read the Status Bar provided it has been switched on in the File and folder options, view tab, advanced settings.  It is near the top of the page and f6 will cycle through various elements of the File Explorer display, including “Status Bar”.  It only describes the display format used on the Explorer page and suggests a keystroke of Ctrl+Shift+6 which I can’t get to work.  The “Status Line” (as referenced by NVDA) is not found by NVDA, irrestpective of whether status bar is switched on or not.  Virtual review does show that there is information at the bottom of the screen consisting of the number  of items in folder and how many are selected but this is not present when the status Bar is switched off. 

 

The nvda+end keystroke to read the Status Line in Word 2007 seems to work OK as it does when using Ed-Sharp.  In Excel 2007, it says “Ready 100 percent” then freezes and I had to alt+f4 out of Excel before speech resumed.  I retried Excel with no add-ons active and the status line was spoken OK.  I cannot get the nvda+end command to work in Outlook 2007 with or without add-ons active.   

 

Conclusion: Status line reading functionality is a bit flakey and is possibly compromised by add-ons.   

Cheers

Hi.

It's much more convoluted to do it this way. I would consider myself to be an advanced user of NVDA, yet I found it difficult to find it. I could offer up another solution in the form of the Virtual Review add-on. When it is installed, press NVDA+Control+W while in Windows/File Explorer.

Dear Ralph,

That is correct, the search element of Bible Seeker is not very accessible.  I like because it has the KJV and the Spanish Reina Valera which I like and I enjoy the Matthew Henry commentary.  On my IPhone, I use the Bible.is which is very good.

Best of luck.

Warmly

Blessings

Dear Pascal,

 

Although it is a very basic program and does not have the more recent, copyrighted, versions of the Bible, it is the best I have found. However, having recently moved to a new computer and a new version of Windows 10, I now have some difficulty in navigating through a list of passages in a Find window. On the old computer, I could simply arrow my way through the list and use the tab key to move to the fields that allow me to do a new search. Now I have to use the number pad to navigate through the list of found passages and I cannot tab out of that list.

 

Warmly,

Ralph

Hi,

Bible Seeker is a very accessible program and works with NVDA.  It comes with several Bible versions and the Matthew Henry Commentary.  You can Google it.  If you cannot find it, let me know and I will email you the file.

Blessings

Dear All,

 

I asked this question a number of years ago and am now checking if there is any update. Does anyone know of a Bible program that is truly accessible?

 

Warmly,

Ralph

Hello,Some technical papers need to be written in a 2 column format and I'm having a hard time figuring out what column I'm on both because NVDA likes to
jump around columns and because I need to know how to format my paper based off the template.
Is there any way to tell what column I'm in?
I suppose you're using MS Office. I don't have an answer for you there, but I have run into this same thing using OpenOffice.
In OpenOffice, the last time I had to do columns, I first pretended I was doing the work on separate pages, using a manual page break to split the two where desired. So with column 1 on page 1, and column 2 on page 2, I then reformatted the document into columns, which automatically looked at the separate pages as separate columns.

This is rather a brittle solution, and I have grave doubts that it will work for MS Office, but it did work for my single page, double column, landscaped documents.

unable to hear search text in iTunes

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

this has, for me, always been the case. When I want to search on iTunes for a track or album or podcast, NVDA reads the words I type as I'd expect but if I want to arrow backwards to change a word or correct a typo NVDA does not speak the individual letters like it would in an Internet search.

Is there any kind of iTunes setting that can enable this, or any NVDA setting that might allow it?

Thanks for any ideas :)

Giles


Re: goldwave

 

Hi,

I need to know the following please:

  1. NvDA version
  2. Version of the add-on you’ve got.
  3. While using GoldWave, press Control+NVDA+F1 and tell me what NVDA says exactly.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

This just suddenly stopped this morning. It had been working. I am running Goldwave 5.7.

I had also installed GoldWave 6.3 but decided not to keep it.

I can try E-Sword again. The last time I tried it, I was unable to get very far.
