locked A short survey on using NVDA with E-Publications

Sile
 

Hello all


This is a request for help with a survey looking at how screen reader users access electronic publications.


I know a couple of people have already indicated that they would be willing to participate but in case anyone missed the original announcement, I am including it here.


Researchers at the University of Michigan are currently conducting a pilot study to gain some understanding of the ways in which users of screen readers such as NVDA and Jaws acquire and use E-Publications.

If you have a couple of minutes, would you be willing to participate?  There are 12 questions and the survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete.


The reward, if you choose to accept it, is a free ebook from the University of Michigan Press - we can send you a list of possible titles if you include your email address in the box at the end of the form.


We need responses back by the end of May.


The survey is here:

<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd6DmQbgj5n9RDe-VtevIpWeRM5iOfqX8Xf_xEhfSkkGweJZw/viewform?usp=sf_link> '


Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Regressing Add-ons?

 

Hi,
They are not regressions - I have restored older releases after receiving feedback yesterday regarding compatibility checks.
Cheers,

I just received a message that several add-ons had updates. I am positive these same exact add-ons got updates yesterday, and the numbers sounded like older versions were going to be installed. If I remember right, they were: Addon Updater, Resource Monitor, Systray List.

Re: NVDA Suddenly Silent after latest Win10 Cumulative Update

 

Even more interesting, Narrator is dead silent, too.  I am going to try restarting, but I definitely had volume when streaming last night.  I have, however, encountered some weirdness when I disconnect an HDMI cable at times, but it's usually with video, not audio.  I'll report back after restarting.

Did you switch synthesizers? Before doing that, did you apply the saved configuration, NVDA key control r?  Did you also try playing something to make sure the sound card is functioning?

NVDA is still firing up, but is dead silent.  Before I uninstall and reinstall I thought I'd ask if there's something I should check first.  I have the No Beeps Speech add-on and have tried toggling states, but that has no effect.

Re: NVDA Suddenly Silent after latest Win10 Cumulative Update

 

Hi,
What I'm really interested in finding out is what NVDA records in the log -
perhaps it might be a DLL problem, a startup issue, etc.
Cheers,

Re: Nvda and Free Commander

Jacob Kruger
 

No specific add-on involved, and, NVDA + T would generally just announce the window title?


BTW, let me double-check that we're talking about same file manager - I'm occasionally working with FreeCommander XE version 2018.0.0.770:

https://freecommander.com/en/summary/


By the way, am also working under windows 10 64 bit, so, yes, I do have the windows 10 app essentials add-on installed, but, also don't think that's really relevant.

Re: NVDA reads Drupal 8 Superfish menu in Chrome with "link ALT+" appended to the end of href links

maura.clover@...
 

Good morning,

I wanted to report back that the Drupal Superfish issue with NVDA has been resolved. Superfish was injecting an empty "accesskey" attribute into href links which NVDA and JAWS were both announcing as ALT+. The attribute has been removed and now both SRs read the menu correctly. Thank you Luke for your suggestion as it was the right path to follow.

Regards.

Buttons on embedded Acast player

Steve Griffiths
 


Has anyone tried to use the Acast podcast player on a website? I've found that the buttons to play and pause the podcast work in Chrome, but are unlabelled in Firefox and not even announced in Internet Explorer, although they do take focus. Is there a setting in NVDA or the browser that I can change to correct this? Or should I approach the NVDA developers about it?

 

Thanks,

Steve 🐾

Hi Christo,

Although they look like errors which might need attention, the key question is: Did anything seem to go wrong or stop working when that error happened?

Dear Luke

The issue with the sound moving to the right speaker is only on the laptop
speakers. The sound is clear through earphones.

However, whether I use earphones or not, my NVDA ducks whenever windows
makes a sound.

I also have to set NVDA on a low volume through earphones and change volume
using the speaker settings otherwise NVDA is too loud. The jumps between
volumes on my NVDA are massive.

Kind regards

Subject: [nvda] Threshold/add-on releases round 2: reverting recent releases/compatibility range changes, Threshold work from my add-ons put on hold #AddonRelease

 

Hi all,

 

After receiving feedback regarding recent add-on updates and compatibility checks, I’m going to do two things:

  1. Revert releases: although Project Threshold does say that NVDA 2019.3 is required, feature set isn’t frozen. Thus I’m reverting recent releases.
  2. Threshold/add-on compatibility work put on hold: until the “real” game changer comes to Threshold and getting clearance to introduce Threshold work, I’m putting Threshold add-on work on hold for all my add-ons (for now, all of my add-ons, including Add-on Updater, are affected by this hold).

 

For those using Add-on Updater: depending on if you’ve updated add-ons recently or not, you’ll either get no update announcement or a dialog asking you to “update”. Don’t worry if update versions seem to be older than what you might be using.

 

A note to anyone wishing to test Project Threshold with add-ons: at this time, I advise against it until “green light” is issued from authorities. The exception is for add-on developers who are interested in keeping an eye on changes coming with this project – hold off releasing Threshold powered add-on versions until told to do so.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Jacob,

I never know, which panel in Free Commander is opened.

Which key may I press to find out it.

If I play around with free commander - been a little while - I think I used to check window title to find out which panel had focus.


Stay well

Hi Group Nvda,
I use Free Commander for free on my computer.
To switch between individual panels, press Tab.
However, Nvda does not tell me which panel I am in.
Free Commander is available at:
http://freecommander.com
I wonder if there will ever be a sound system for Free Commander implemented in Nvda.
(I'm talking about the sound so Nvda can tell me in Free Commander the left and right panels.)
