Re: Nvda, Total Commander and its' panels

Mallard <mallard@...>
 

Hello,


Total Commander does indeed announce the panels, but you don't hhhave to press anything otherthan tab, to move between one panel and the other.


I've used it for about 20 years or more now, with Jaws first and, since 2009, with NVDA.


The good thing, compared to Free Commander, is that it announces panels, amongst otherthings.


Try simply tabbing, and let me know whether it works for you.

Ciao,

Ollie

Greetings to all
I have both Free Commander and Total Commander installed on my computer.
I thought Nvda would announce the panels at Total Commander, but it wasn't.
When I press Nvda + T, only the Total Commander window is reported. The Tab key does not report panels.
So I want to ask if any of you are using Total Commander, and whether it will ever be implemented into Nvda by announcing panels in Total Commander.

Hi all.

Waterfox 68 alpha1 is out.

From inital useage the only major issue I found is that extentions
seems to not be accessible or at least none of my addons show.

I assume it uses the newer quantom inaccessible interfface sadly.

However, it appears that the older waterfox while itself will be
eventually dieing when 68.0 comes out is not going away in fact
according to the waterfox blog its going to be called waterfox classic,
and will remain being updated with security and bugfix updates when
possible, there won't be any schedual as such but both branches will be
active, its just that eventually all addons will be updated for the
alpha version.

According to the blog, there are addons updating, it stresses its the
first alpha.

I don't have any way to contact the devs directly about us screen reader
users but it would be good to well have them on board.

Unlike firefox quantom it does appear that generally things do load in
an accessible manner but there are a lot of changes under the hood.

I would encourage anyone and everyone to test this.

Its good to know that unlike firefox, all that will happen is that
waterfox will simply split in half.

Waterfox will be modernised and people will be encouraged to use the
latest and greatest.

Waterfox 56.x branch will be renamed waterfox classic and will continue
as it is till the end of time most likely.

Now I will of course see later on if I can update and see what goes and
what loads.

If classic addons work on 68 like noscript 5x or even if some of the
newer stuff is accessible I will try to see what that does.

On the other side, there will not be any reason to keep that version if
its got issues though it would be good to try to nipp as many of these
issues in the bud and I think unlike mozilla and its view on security
and accessibility software the people behind waterfox won't be so stupid
over it.

Just curious why that would be? The system would still have internet access, and possibly from the original out-going IP address, for that matter.

checking the check boxes in ccleaner

Brian Moore
 

Hi all.  So in the last several versions of Ccleaner, the checked state of the toggles for which items you want cleaned haven't read with NVDA.


Just reinstalled a fresh windows 10 on a machine and now I can't tell which is checked and not by default.  I usually make lots of changes particularly in the advanced section and the apps section.

Has anyone worked this out?


If so, how do you tell the state of these pretend check boxes?

Thanks.

Brian.

Re: Nvda and Free Commander

Jacob Kruger
 

Jarek, it will only announce the current folder/directory that the current panel is focused on/browsing.


That's what was saying yesterday with regards to the golden cursor add-on allowing me to route mouse cursor to focus object, and then check mouse coordinates, to tell if it was to the left or the right.


So, there's no specific way to get it to tell you if free commander refers to it as panel 1 or panel 2.

I don't use the program but can you move from panel to panel in any way, such as with f6?  If so, is what you see restricted to whatever panel you can move to?

Dne 16-05-2019 v 22:21 Jacob Kruger napsal(a):
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.

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.
