Re: Inconsistency with NVDA+t on desktop

 

In fact, here it always reports "Explorer".
How I would have it to report Program Manager?

Hi folks,
has anyone else observed that sometimes NVDA reports the title of the
desktop as "Explorer" whereas at other times it states "Program
Manager?"
As an aside, I find that "Explorer" is often announced even when it is
inappropriate as something completely different has focus.
Best,

Turning Colors On And Off, NVDA

David Russell
 

Hello Group,

Olli's answer to my question aided my search as I figured out what
needs to happen with regard to using colors in NVDA.
However, the article found, https://etcusf.edu, gives a step by step
on how to select a synthesizer.

For colors, does everything happen within the Preferences menu, or submenu,=?

This is the case, according to the web source, on finding a desired
voice synthesizer.

Of course, one gets to preferences via the NVDA menu.

I am still unsure of what the heck it is I want to search for and will
keep looking until resolved. Thanks.

Re: Cannot open nvaccess.org in Iran

The discussion has indicated that others have the same problem. 
Even if that hadn't come out in the discussion, I would consider it very unlikely.  Malware may block something like antimalware sites from opening but it would have no interest in blocking a screen-reader site.

Re: Jumping Between Clickables

 

Don't quote me on this, but I have a feeling that if the item is only a clickable one, tab won't let you land on it, in fact, probably it'll ignore the existence of such an item.

And, while we are on this, is there any command to access clickable items with NVDA?

It doesn't matter what clickable structures do.  If they are clickable, they should be able to be recognized when using a move to next clickable command.  The screen-reader recognizes them and announces clickable when you move to one.

Re: Jumping Between Clickables

Andre Fisher
 

It's best to focus on what the user is trying to acomplish, which is a way to move from clickable element to element. As the name suggests, these elements are labelled as such because they perform an action when clicked by the mouse, and some of them will be activated using the keyboard. Yes, some website developers may wrongfully use this tag, but nevertheless it can be useful to jjump to them.

I would also like to see something like this. Perhaps the letter Y can be used to move to the next clickable item, or P or J, with Shift being added to move to the previous element. I don't recommend this being in the Elements List, due to some websites abusing this tag as mentionned before.

Re: Inconsistency with NVDA+t on desktop

 

As a generic observation, you can and sometimes do get all sorts of difficulty/inconsistency when asynchronous processing is being used (and it's used a lot these days) and you have something else (probably NVDA, in this case) "playing watchman" for any one of a number of events that could be thrown at it in any order, and sometimes very rapidly.   You'll often end up with the last event that occurred in rapid succession being the only one that ends up being presented to the end user, as by the time you'd even try with the others it would get even more insanely confusing.  Sometimes what the watcher gets last is not what actually happened last.

The following is offered by means of demonstration of this sort of problem generally, not specific to NVDA.  I experienced an issue with asynchronous processing when writing a custom VBA script for a screen reader user so that Outlook would automatically click through on a link contained in specific e-mail messages.  The message would come in, the script would be kicked off, but the actual message body text would not yet be available for processing because Outlook was still doing something with it while the script was already running.   I had to put a bit of "time burning run the treadmill" type code in the script to make sure that Outlook had finished its bit and handed off access to the message body before I moved on.  It took me forever to figure out what was going on, as it made no sense to me that Outlook could hand over a message to a script but had only handed over *part* of a message to a script until it finished whatever it was doing with the other part.

Hello

Is there any reasonable way, or is there some way in development, to jump between items on a web page that are "clickable"?

The manual only mentions clickables in regards to the indicator in the braille section, and the checkbox in the document format configuration description, and even in this latter it is very sparse information.

I have found various discussions about clickables, whether they should be spoken, whether lots in a row should be spoken, and how to get them to stop speaking, but nothing about how to navigate them.

For example, if I have a bunch of links on a page, I can skip between them with k, v, u, etc. If there are buttons, I can use b and B. And so on.
But how does one do this with clickables? Sometimes you run into quite long lists of these, and it would be nice to move through them quickly, or to jump to them from another part of the page.

Frankly I'm surprised this has not been done already, but maybe there is some reason I can't think of. Or maybe it is being done and just isn't documented in an obvious way.

The Reapers Without Peepers (RWP) group main page on groups.io is: https://groups.io/g/rwp
All of the e-mail addresses for the group are, as is typical, located near the end of the group's main page.

If one wants to search for a group that might possibly exist under Groups.io, use this webpage: https://groups.io/search?p=SubsCount,,,20,2,0,0
A search there on Reaper turns up this group as the first search result.

Detailed information on using Reaper with any screen reader can be found there and the group appears to be quite active based on the monthly post totals on its main page.

Re: Inconsistency with NVDA+t on desktop

Hi,
indeed it could. Something is off somewhere and a cluster of what seem
to be independent bugs has formed around it, but I have no idea what
it could be except to assume it happens when the watchdog kicks in at
certain times.
Best,
Felix

Could it also be implicated in the way at certain times when a browser is
launched with auto say all on, it fails and indeed often fails to bring
focus to the document until you do something like open and close a menu?

Hi,
thanks for confirming. The more I think about it, the more I am of the
opinion that this might also be related to issue #8389, which I myself
reported, because in the final analysis it has to do with focus
tracking again. Sorry that this is becoming an exercise in
self-reference on my part, but I keep running into ramifications of it
and they are pretty much everything I currently dislike about NVDA,
meaning I pretty much love everything else.
Best,
Felix

You are right the basic intermittent issue has been around generally
since
the xp days.
If you look at logs you do often see warnings but no actual errors. I do
not have some comparison logs handy and as it is quite a small irritation
probably low priority, but despite it being in the tracker I did not find
it.
My poor search skills probably!

Hi folks,
has anyone else observed that sometimes NVDA reports the title of the
desktop as "Explorer" whereas at other times it states "Program
Manager?"
As an aside, I find that "Explorer" is often announced even when it is
inappropriate as something completely different has focus.
Best,
Felix

Hi friends,
Need solutions to access the whats app of web version on desktop.
One of our candidate joined company in India.
She should use whats app very efficiently by using desktop with screen
reader NVDA.
At present unable to use the app very efficiently.
Note:
Tried with Mozilla fire fox and add on.
It is not accessible also getting error "not respondinng"
If we remove add on then PC works well.

Add on name is f123.
With regards,
Sandesh HR
