Re: Function Needed and Price Therefor

With our issue tracker, the easiest place to start is:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

Type your query into the edit box and it will find any issues with those keywords.  Firstly it will display open issues (issues which are not yet resolved).  There will be links saying "4 open", and "12 closed" (I just made up those numbers obviously), if you activate the "x closed" link, it will show you closed issues relating to your search.

If you activate the "New issue" button, it will first get you to choose whether you are reporting a bug (something which should work but doesn't), or a "feature request" (a new feature you'd like to see, or a new program you'd like to have support added for).

After selecting either, as you type the subject into the edit field, it will suggest issues which may match what you are looking for below that.  You can either go to one of those issues, or ignore them and add the new issue anyway.

You are, of course, welcome to bring thoughts or questions here first - sometimes there might be a way to do something already or a reason something is the way it is - whatever you are comfortable with.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: braille edge

I had a Braille Edge and now have a QBraille XL. I also notice that from time to time there seems to be a blank line while reading. This always seems to be at the end of a paragraph or a hard return. When I up arrow it often goes away. However, I haven't used this with NVDA so far.

The main drawback I encountered so far is that occasionally it shows

I have already let the HIMS no about this and hopefully it will be fixed soon.
It can also be used as a standalone notetaker, but limitted to text

Aine Kelly Costello
 

Thanks everyone for your comments.

To be clear, my intention in posing this question was not to suggest that NVDA is a poor choice of screenreader, or to davalue it in comparison to JAWS. It was simply to get to the heart of the fact that different screenreaders have their pros and cons, and while I’ll definitely download and have NVDA for use regardless of if I buy JAWS, the financial question to sort out is whether to get JAWS, if that makes sense. That’s why I posed the question looking one-sided haha.

Again, I appreciate your input:)

Hello Aine, hello list, 
 
I am not able to give you an objective view here, just my experiences. 
 
Coming from a Mac/Unix environment myself I would say NVDA does a good job with standard office applications. Of course, if you want to play it safe and you have the financial possibilities, update your Jaws to the newest version before starting your studies. After all, you never know if you will encounter a software that doesn’t work with NvDA and works with Jaws. Personally, I subscribe to the view that it’s always good to have more than one screen reader installed just in case something is not as accessible as you would like it.
 
As to your original question though, if you are pretty sure that you will be using standard software and you are considering if you really need Jaws to survive in the computer age, my personal answer is no. 
 
Hope that helps …

Re: question about using NVDA with iTunes

 

Well being that itunes is a web app most nvda web commands should work, it has a few treeviews in it to though.

I think this is all on this though.

Hi all,

 

New here and my apologies if this topic has been well-covered before but I've

not found an efficient ways to search group archives yet!

 

This topic gets bogged down in politics anyway and it's a personal favourite

of mine.

 

I'm switching back to Windows after using a Mac for a couple of years, as I'll

be studying investigative journalism and am fairly sure I'll find any software

we need to use etc. to work better on Windows than Mac (still getting info on

that).

 

I think that's a gross generalization.  If I could use mac for everything, I

would.  Windows is OK for the asics, especially if you have a good means of

flashing back to a known good configuration, but I don't like it for the high

performance applications I need.

 

 

My question is: can you tell me about anything that springs to mind that NVDA

does particularly poorly that JAWS does well? In the domains of MS Word, excel

and web browsing, in particular.

 

Interesting turn of phrase.  I'm biassed but in my experience the reverse is

true.  I just started a training for a customer using jaws that wanted to

learn flipp.  I didn't think it would be an issue, since I had just used flipp

in chrome with nvda very well.  With jaws, it was just really clunky and

gross.  The customer got so frustrated.  I tried chrome and edge with flipp

and with other more basic sites and wasn't really pleased with any of it.

Speaking of webpage summaries was very random.  Some webpages loaded on screen

but not in virtual buffer.  It was discouraging.

 

I did have to turn a formula bar setting off in NVDA so that I could use

inline editing for cells in excel spreadsheets last term.  I forget where the

setting is now, but could find it if needed.  Other than that, I haven't had

any problems in word or excel using nvda.  I've done some complex reports with

tables of content, heading structures, and bibliographies and have never had

trouble getting formatting information and finding the options I need.

 

On the other hand, I went out to do a training for a college student using

jaws for an excel course, and it was brootal.  He had some intermitant focus

issue where he couldn't navigate cells.  Then he would restart the computer

and things would work for a bit.  Then it would poop out on him.

In the spring I went out to do a jaws training and the customer had his

authorization fail.  List indexes aren't being reported properly.  The mail

app that comes with windows 10 is doing screwie things, and jaws loses focus

in html content such as webpages and emails.

 

OK, these are small sample sizes, but it seems to me as though jaws screws up

all the time nowadays.  I figure, if something goes wrong with NVDA:

*Odds are good it'll be fixed in months rather than years.

*I haven't paid anything out of pocket.

*There's a strong support community and excellent documentation.

 

Honestly, I don't see what you would get out of jaws that you wouldn't get

from either nvda or voiceover.

 

I imagine JAWS is well-ahead of NVDA in OCRing by now, for instance, but

perhaps there's enough free software around to do this efficiently now that

that's not a big deal any more . thoughts?

 

OCR is a nonstarter.  Everything does it now.  Just pull out your phone and

get'er done.  Realisticly, almost all daily computing such as email, web,

simple word processing and document reading can and probably should be done on

mobile anyway.  I have 4 email accounts on my phone, and only one on each of

my development machines, and I'm writing this email from my phone where I'm

sitting comfortably on a bus with a work table in front of me.Thanks very much

in advance,

 

Best wishes,

Hi Robert,

I'm glad to hear you've enjoyed Basic Training with NVDA in Audio (Glen, who narrated it will be pleased also!)

We haven't had quite as much demand to produce the other modules in audio (or Braille), so at this stage, we've concentrated on making Basic Training available in a choice of formats, with the later modules in electronic text.

The review cursor (and it's partner, Object Navigation) are fairly complex topics.  While the straight keys are listed in the User Guide, that is really more a reference for those who have already learnt how to use them.  I would suggest the Basic Training for NVDA module which not only covers these topics (and many others) but after explaining each function, gives you a step-by-step activity to walk you through practicing using it.  The module is available either on its own, in several choices of format, or as part of the NVDA Productivity Bundle, from our shop: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

In good news, it just so happens, that the section on the Review Cursor, is the free sample chapter you can read online to get a feel for how the material works before purchasing: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvdaTrainingSamples/sample_of_basic_training_for_NVDA.html

Kind regards

Quentin.

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.06 released, add-on development plan for the next few months #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.06 is now available. This release improves support for just released Windows 10 Version 1903 (May 2019 Update), specifically when it comes to modern keyboard.

 

In addition, here’s what will happen with this add-on in the next few months:

  1. End of support countdown for Version 1803 (April 2018 Update): as of May 27, 2019 (which will be Memorial Day in United States), end of support countdown for Windows 10 Version 1803 will be in effect. This means at least 60 days from that date, Windows 10 App Essentials add-on will drop support for that version of Windows 10; future releases from that point on will require Version 1809 (October 2018 Update). This may change under two conditions: a major upgrade bug is found in Version 1903 (May 2019 Update) that results in data loss or similar catastrophes, or a critical change is made to NVDA that necessitates extending end of support for Version 1803. The former is unlikely, while the latter may happen, and if one of these should happen, support will be extended to end of August and no more after that.
  2. Version 1803 and development snapshot releases: if you are using development builds of this add-on, Version 1803 will be dropped sooner – no later than June 22, 2019, which is exactly a month from today. There will be no support extension for development build users.
  3. Upcoming development builds may require NVDA 2019.1 or later: some of you may have noticed that recent development builds of this add-on does not install on NVDA releases earlier than 2019.1. This was done so I can test what happens if strictly NVDA 2019.1 code is used in this add-on. This will continue for a while.
  4. NVDA version jump: typically I support current and most recent NVDA releases in this add-on (currently 2018.4 and 2019.1.x). However, once Project Threshold is given a green light by NV Access people (not yet at the moment) and once that project is released to the general public (as a stable version, not a snapshot or RC), I will initiate version jump – Windows 10 App Essentials will require stable Threshold version of NVDA. However, given that one of the anticipated changes deal with Python 3 and due to problems it may bring, I will give you at least 60 days grace period, with the start and end dates to be determined then.

 

Regarding version jump as a result of Project Threshold: it won’t be limited to Windows 10 App Essentials. I will announce more details in regards to my add-ons in a future email.

Cheers,

Joseph


Document Attached, Formatting Improved?

David Russell
 

Hello NVDA Folks and friends,

I am attaching one of my stories after making some changes in document
format settings.
I would like to stay with Jarte or move up to Jarte+ if I can get it
to cooperate as well as MS Word is reported to do. Is this now more in
keeping with what others expect?

I have font attributes turned on and, indentation on as directed.

The one outstanding question is how to get Jarte to announce page breaks?

Thanks to those of you who look at my attachment for formatting. I
wait with bated breath!

Testers for Github

Adriani Botez
 

Dear all,

 

we need more testers on the process of triaging issues on Github. Specifically, we need users on Windows 7 or 8.1 using braille displays. But everyone is welcome to help if possible.

 

If you want to help, Please reply to this email with answers to following questions:

  1. Which system are you using? (Windows 10, Windows 8.1 etc.)
  2. Are you a braille display user?
  3. Which MS Office version are you using? (i.e. Office 2010, 2013 etc.).
  4. Which is your Github name? In my case for example is @adriani90

 

Thanks and best regards

Adriani

 


Re: Issue with braille keyboard

Brian Tew
 

Well I cannot find any braille input for shift.
However shiftlock is spase+234.
I found that by pressing nvda+1 and going through all the braille key combinations.
