Re: Nvda and Free Commander

Jacob Kruger
 

I was specifically talking about just using the window title announcement, and, the reason I mentioned operating system, etc. is that under windows 10, it's just possible the windows 10 app essentials add-on would be sort of required to have it work a bit better.


However, like mentioned as well, I rarely even fire up free commander, so, sorry - can't be much more help.

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.

But, have never really bothered - I just use NVDA key + T to get it to tell me the title of the window, which tells me which of the panels I am focused on..

locked Re: A short survey on using NVDA with E-Publications

 

Hello All,

          Nimer and I are very well aware that it is difficult to get research subjects in general, let alone among the community of screen reader users.  We do, however, ask that requests to post calls for subjects be made via the Owner address, nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io, before posting same.

          Here is the direct link to this survey:   Survey on NVDA Use with e-Publications

           I encourage those who are so inclined to participate.  At this time this topic is locked since the correct link to the survey has now been posted twice.

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.

Re: NVDA Suddenly Silent after latest Win10 Cumulative Update

 

Definitely one of those "HDMI cable removal" issues that occur every so often on this laptop.  I tried viewing a YouTube video before restarting, and it was dead silent, too.

After a system reboot all is back to normal.  One of those "brain farts" because I should have remembered this issue occurring in the past, but it's been ages since I've been routinely using HDMI output from this laptop, so that memory faded (but is fresh again now).

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.

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.

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.
