Ron, what follows is not personally aimed at you, but at this concept, which several have expressed.

Whether or not you, any you, use a given feature or function is irrelevant.  You can be assured that a very great many others do.

It becomes completely irrelevant when that feature is configurable to an OFF state by the user.   All programs have features that any individual user may not like or may not use.  All programs have default settings that may not suit a given individual.  The first task of any user, with any program, is to do the exploration necessary to configure it to match their own wants and needs to the maximal extent possible.  You don't "steal features" that are assuredly used by many because you (the generic you) cannot be bothered to learn how to configure them, which includes turning them off.

Software is not now, and will never be, bespoke for any given individual unless they've written it themselves for themselves.  Something like NVDA should not be expected to be anything near to being so in its "out of the box" state.  You're going to have to tweak it to make it fit.

The education about how NVDA works, about the existence of add-ons and so on, it is not one of the major responsabilities of the various local communities?

At least, for the portuguese community, it is, and we are doing a good job, proven by the continuos growth of user basis...

Hello,

Interesting topic! Personally I only agree with half of it. It would be indeed great if at least some add-ons became part of NVDA, and I would include Screen Curtain among those.

On the other hand, I totally oppose the exclusion of the ducking function. It’s extremely useful, especially with  services like Youtube  or Google Play Music. Often it’s the only way to hear the screen reader without having to close everything else.

Let’s see what other opinions come up!

Hi Vlad,


I agree with you on the ducting.  I don't use it a lot with NVDA because I use a computer and long before ducting, I used 2 separate sound cards and have total control.  However, I am using ducting on the iPhone and the way Apple has instituted it works great and is definitely an advantage.  For those who can't run 2 separate sound cards, it is truly a godsend.


As far as including a huge number of add-ons with NVDA, I  also disagree with this one.  One of the good things about NVDA is that it is under public license and is subject to a lot of different additions and variations. I would hate to see it become so bulky that is gets like JAWS which has so much bloteware and features that many people don't use that it is at times extremely redundant.  People in developing countries probably appreciate the slim and streamline aspects of NVDA.  If they need it only for word processing, why should they have to include a bunch of add-ons that would make the download so much larger and perhaps create a situation where there could be conflicts with their desired tasks.


...just my opinion.

When I see things like this my jaw drops?   The official NVDA Add-Ons Page, whose address has been posted hundreds of times, is:  https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html.

Each add-on is presented, by title, as a link on the page.   If you, any you, who've been an NVDA user and participant on any NVDA related list/forum for a long time have never bothered to go there and do a cruise-through of the links to see what's what you have no one to blame but yourselves.

I'm not about to give the actual link in this case, but the fact that there is an add-on named Outlook Extended answers that question.

[The above may not apply to Devin if that comment was in jest, but it certainly applies to any member who's been on this list for at least a month.  Go look, and if you need to activate an add-on title to get a further description of its function, well . . . ]

1 ducking.

Can someone remind me why we had it in the first place.

I've always been apposed to it, mainly because of the fact no one really uses it, at least I cann't see any reason a normal user like myself either on office or a gamer like me would need it in general.

I could see it when ducking some sounds, maybe or just turning down volumes.

I just answered a message with it in, but I have never cared for it.

I think this feature should go unless its used.

I also think stable addons that have been stable for 1 year or so maybe 6 months to 1 year should be reviewed for nvda core, and if not within a 2 year period if not further developed.

The following should be conciddered.

1. if interpritors by nick stocton.

Unless this addon has any new version changes then I have used it with frotz and winglulx, tads, and its stable enough to put it in or at least native support of it.

1. the image describer while new shows promise though having that could be an eventual support down the road.

Not sure about all the text and brousernav addons.

But all the program support addons, eg winamp, dropbox, outlook, teamtalk, etc should eventually go into nvda, as well as goldwave.

Calibre and toolbars explorer maybe and easy table nav.

THe math support, the updater eventually, the mozilla addon, and a few things like that.

This should extend to any addons that are used which havn't been updated for ages but look good, app support, and a few features.

I also think that sound scheme support for alternit sounds and theme support maybe similar to windows sound schemes should be part of nvda.

I also don't mind paying for professional theme packs for nvda.

This is not just the addons on the site excluding alegal addons and stuff used for one thing only, but especially with the nvda python3 project, eventually well next build we will start loosing addons that are not compatible.

And a few addons havn't had updates for whatever reason, maybe some of these are stable enough and don't need any.

The only thing I agree with you on is the second bit of your message. Otherwise, you're wrong about the notion that people don't use ducking. I don't have the patience to explain to you why you are wrong, but you are wrong. As for your other points, some of those are valid. But how about you make an actual poll or survey rather than pretending like you know what we want.


Announcement of “Filed” Status

Ed Marquette
 

When one reads through the list of email messages in Microsoft Outlook (2013), a number of attributes (probably the correct term is “header fields”) are announced, e.g., “From,” “Received Date,” “Attachment Presence,” and “Size.”
On our firm’s system, we also have a “Filed Status” indication that either reads “Yes” or “No.”
If I manually read the cells, Outlook messages are presented in table format), I find that this status indication is presented in what NVDA calls column 6.
This “Filed” status indication is the second most important feature, for my purposes.
I have moved it up in Outlook, and JAWS reads it fine. I cannot, however, get NVDA to read it automatically as I arrow up and down through the inbox. I think I am missing something.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Re: saving a list of headings

Gene
 

Look in document formatting.  I believe what you will see will be self-explanatory.  But what is the advantage in using the headings list?  You can just start at the top of the document and type h to move by heading.  Once on the heading, copy it to the clipboard, move somewhere such as Notepad or to a Word processor window, paste it In, press enter to be on a blank line, then move back to the document and repeat the procedure until you have copied the headings to wherever you want them.

To answer your question, I need to collect all the headings in a document that I need to re-organise. The paragraph contents under the headings are perfect but the way the document is structured badly needs reworking. In my setup NVDA does not say anything about levels such as you describe. I simply get the text of the headings but no idea what level they are at. Since you do get these levels, I suppose there must be some control that I have turned off somewhere that enables the levels to be spoken. Can you clarify that for me?

Hello Cearbhall:

 

Did you mean NVDA+F7 to open the elements dialog?

 

This brings up a list of elements which are grouped in categories. For example, when browsing the web, the categories are:

  • Links
  • Headings
  • Form fields
  • Buttons
  • Landmarks

 

In the headings group, NVDA announces levels instead of heading numbers. Level 0 corresponds to Heading1, Level 1 corresponds to Heading2, etc. When using the up and down arrow keys to navigate the list of headings, NVDA announces the level at the end, except when the level changes. Then it is announced at the beginning. For properly nested headings, you can collapse and expand the list using left and right arrow keys. NVDA announces if the level is collapsed or expanded.

 

I am not sure why you need the extra verbosity for links, since when viewing links in that category, only links are present. NVDA even announces if a link has been visited. Same for buttons and landmarks.

I’ve encountered a strange intermittent issue. Every so often I’ve had a problem whereby I’ll be using the laptop and then NVDA will go all crackly. The only way I’ve been able to solve it thus far is to restart the whole thing. Luckily it doesn’t happen that often but when it does it’s most annoying.

The second thing is that every so often and this is regular the soundcard will just switch off. I have my laptop plugged into a bos soundlink mini 2 and after a while unless there’s sound going through it the  laptop sound seems to switch off which results in the speaker turning off. At first I thought it was NVDA being weird but it isn’t. if anybody could assist me with either issues then I would indeed be grateful.

 

Many thanks.


Add-on Updater 19.05, other add-on releases on their way #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

In a few hours Add-on Updater 19.05 will hit the air (released). This is a mandatory update that updates NVDA compatibility range.

 

Speaking of add-on updates, expect updates for the following add-ons in the next few days:

 

  • Resource Monitor: compatibility range, localization updates
  • SystrayList: compatibility range, localization updates
  • Golden Cursor: one final update from me with localization updates
  • StationPlaylist Studio: compatibility range updates

 

Cheers,

Joseph

If its web based then a browser might be the culprit.
If it did work and you now say it won't raise an issue on the nvda issue tracker, its the only way it will be looked into.

I have had a problem moderating comments since October with all the changes in NVDA and Wordpress. I'm pretty sure it's
a NVDA problem. Maybe an add-on would fix it.

That sounds then, like they have broken the system again.
It may be that Jaws has a script they are using to get around the issue.
I don't use it myself so cannot comment further, but it would not be the
first time some brand new version of a web site or program has been broken
by the people who write it.

I have NVDA 2019.1.1 On a different machine and I have tried it there with
sighted help. The guy couldn''t walk me
through the moderation process. It just didn't make sense from NVDA.

Hi, John,

You might want to try upgrading to the latest version of NVDA which is
NVDA 2019.1.1. Let us know if that fixes the problem.

Hello,

I have the latest WordPress, 5.1.1. and NVDA2019.1. I can log in to
WordPress, but I can't moderate comments. I find the
link that says xx comments and press enter. It goes to the comments
page, but there I am lost. There are supposed to be
check boxess and ddropdown menus, but I can't find them.

Thanks,
John

In-Process has a number of meanings.?? Firstly it can mean something which is being worked on and not yet completed.?? It is also a technical term for the way that some of our code works to gather its information.?? Thanks for asking!

Have a great weekend,

Quentin.

Marcio, I usually aim for once a fortnight.?? If you read back through the archives -??https://www.nvaccess.org/category/in-process/??- you'll see that I don't always meet that goal :)
Quentin,
Oh, no worries! It happens. It's not always that we manage to follow, in all, our plans :)
Anyway, looking forward for the next In Process!
Out of curiosity, why it has this name? Maybe I'm not translating it right but who knows, just asking :)
