Well I suppose that all depends on the software you use and what you use
them for. I think its still fair to say sometimes nvda can be slower in some

office applications, but then some may not notice this in general use. For
any power user though there can be issues, but generally in use I find nvda

a good all rounder and preferable for home use. It seems more logical than
the bolted on bits in Jaws does.

Thank you, Gene, good information to know.



On a daily use, does NVDA meet the demands of a fast-paced job, assuming
that you can access a major portion of what is needed? In my job, I found
Jaws had some limitations with clunky work-arounds, but not often, and did
not compromise my productivity. Just trying to keep my questions in

In JAWS, you can define graphics. You can't in NVDA. As far as I know,
because I'm not using a recent version, you can't, in NVDA, change the
order
in which information is spoken such as button followed by text as opposed
to
text followed by button or the order in which visited link is spoken,
before
or after the text of the link.



You can't define frames, as you can in JAWS and have actions taken when a
frame contains certain text or have that part of the screen that is in the
frame read when you issue a command to do so.



I haven't used JAWS for many years and others may have more comparisons.
But, though NVDA will meet the needs of a lot of people, there are cases
where it won't, or at least it won't unless someone writes some sort of
script for NVDA. So in certain ways, JAWS is more user definable.

Re: New Member.

 

Judy,

           This may also end up being a "tool to task" situation, too.   I've seen both NVDA and JAWS be better at doing one thing or another, and if you know that you'll be doing that one thing, versus another, switching between screen readers is often the solution.

           For those in Windows 10 environments it's almost certain that Narrator will be coming into the mix more and more, too, as Microsoft is making major revisions to its command structure to make it far more JAWS-like (and NVDA-like, for that matter).

Two questions about accessing graphs/charts and or accessible price monitoring plugin

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

Two questions related to the same topic. Does anyone know of an accessible price tracking plug in be it for Chrome or Firefox? I’ve tried CamelCamelCamel and the Honey app and while CamelCamelCamel can give the highest and lowest price for an item in a table format, there doesn’t seem to be info on actual price fluctuations. There does appear to be a graph, but nothing Jaws can read. The Honey app straight up just presents price history as a graph that Jaws doesn’t even appear to access.

The second part to my question, is there in fact a way to access these online graphs/charts with a screen reader and somehow convert them to a table quick and easy?

Things like thermoform paper and those types of accessible tools are overkill when all you want is to check the trend on a particular item and move on.

I do use NVDA from time to time, but my main screen reader is Jaws. If NVDA is somehow better at this sort of task I’d be happy to be enlightened.

Thanks,

Hi all,


I am a member of Kindle Unlimited, which lets you read a certain number of books for free. On the web page for any given KU book, you have a choice of "buying" it for 0 dollars or paying the Kindle price. I find that I can't actually buy a KU book at the regular Kindle price using NVDA. I can get focus there and I have tried NVDA key plus numpad enter. I've tried the key on the numpad that simulates a left click. This control for making the purchase isn't in the tab order, so I can't tab to it. I've tried the regular enter key and no go. I managed to actually get the job done using my phone. But I'd like to be able to do it with nvda and firefox.

Hello All,

What follows is not intended to call out specific users (as I have posted on one of the topics, and really shouldn't have) but because two topics that have appeared today are perfect examples of topics better suited to the Chat subgroup.

It is a baseline assumption that virtually anyone who frequents this group, with the exception of myself, is using NVDA in conjunction with anything and everything they do on the computer. But the fact that you're using NVDA doesn't mean a topic is actually *about* using NVDA.

The topic on the Em-Dash (and En-Dash) is really about how to generate these characters in various programs, but not about NVDA itself in any way. The topic regarding editing PowerPoint presentations, likewise, is about PowerPoint, not NVDA. None of the answers offered on either of these topics deals with NVDA, but with commands for other software.

I'm asking folks to please, please, join the Chat Subgroup ( chat+subscribe@nvda.groups.io ) and ask yourself the question, “Is what I’m about to ask related to using NVDA directly to accomplish something, using a specific program with NVDA, or to control NVDA itself?,” and if the answer is, "No," then launch the topic on the Chat subgroup instead. I'm actually hoping that there will be an increase in traffic such as the two topics I mentioned above, as people like to ask others they know and trust about this sort of thing, but I would like that traffic to be on the Chat subgroup. If the question is of the type, "How do I make {insert program here} do {insert behavior here}?," then that's really not in the "using a specific program *with* NVDA" class, but is about using that program and its features via the keyboard.

This transition is definitely a work in progress, and will remain so for a while. There will also definitely be topics where the distinction is not entirely clear, too. I'm just asking that people actually pose the previously mentioned questions and let the answers to same be their guides as to whether to launch a topic on NVDA Main versus NVDA Chat.

I have tried a few methods and hit a couple of stumbling blocks, namely that the 'install.exe --install-silent' command doesn't seem to work - the installer pops up regardless of whether I add the switch or not. Also I can't find any switches to run the uninstaller silently. Does anyone know what could cause this?

 

Many thanks,

Apart from the word dev in the title bar and using the chrome menu setup for the menus it handles the web pages nicely it seems as though you can use all of the quick navigation keys in nvda. A bit more playing around and going into the settings etc but you would think you are driving chrome browser.



See if i can find any qwerks in it.

Hi all,

 

I have been testing NVDA with SCCM before rolling it out to our users. I have tried a few methods and hit a couple of stumbling blocks, namely that the 'install.exe --install-silent' command doesn't seem to work - the installer pops up regardless of whether I add the switch or not. Also I can't find any switches to run the uninstaller silently. Does anyone know what could cause this?

 

Many thanks,

Luke

 


Re: The em-dash Symbol with NVDA?

Giles Turnbull
 

I use m-dashes a lot and I use the ALT+0151 and it inserts them everywhere I've tried ... Notepad, Word, emails, this email — for example.

If the Alt number pad keystroke isn't workikng for you do you have your num lock key on and are you typing it on the separate number pad rather than the number row above the letters? It does need to be typed on the number pad and with num lock active.

also, like with any Alt shortcut, you do need to leave the ALT key pressed down while typing 0, 1, 5, and 1 in turn. I'd be surprised if it isn't working unless it is something specific to the program you're typing in.

Hope that helps :)

Giles
