Hi,

I think you meant “NVDA+T”.

Cheers,

Joseph P.S. Will be a long night for me as I’ll be editing NVDA code that will have massive impact on many add-ons.

Control t reads the title bar.  NVDA tab reports the object with focus, according to input help.  Every program has a title bar and using the read title bar command is important if you want to know what program you are in.

 

You can use any command that generates speech and doesn't move you.  I said to use control t not because it is the only one, but because that is one such command.

 

I didn't go into an explanation for simplicity and efficiency in the instructions.

Sndvol32.  And the instructions won't work as written for Windows XP.  After the volume control opens, you must first tab once.  After that, the instructions will work as written.

Not quite. What if the sound is muted, as or more likely than that the
volume has been changed.

Press and hold the Windows key. You must hold it. If you don't, you
will
open the start menu.
Type the letter r while holding the Windows key.
Now type sndvol and press enter.
Press home. That raises the volume to its highest level.
then use the command alt t to see if you have speech.
If not tab once.
You are on a check box which toggles mute off and on.
Press the space bar. Try control t again.
If there is no speech, press the space bar again to return the setting to
what it was originally.
If there is no sound after all this, you may need sighted help.

But this is a perfect illustration of why anyone who relies on sound for
speech and doesn't have a Braille display should have a USB sound card or
USb headphones for such situations. You can have speech if you simply
connect such a USB device.
After connecting it, you may have to unload and run NVDA again to have
speech switch to the USB device.

You can then go in to sound settings and check the settings for the
internal
card to see what the problem is, assuming, of course, that the problem is
related to sound card settings and isn't an NVDA or other probem.

If it is an NVDA or other proboem, you won't have speech whatever sound
card
you use.

Hello Travis,


Given that this is an excellent solution, if someone doesn't want to
go down that road, I think the best way to read epubs right now is
with Edge.


At the top of the page you have two buttons, for Previous page and
Next page.


When you finish one page, all you haveto do is to press Shift+B and
click on Next page.


If the epub is an original, not converted from other formats, Edge
maintains all its links, and ou can navigate it very easili.


Actually, I've had books that maintained their links even when
converted from other formats. I don't know what makes Edge decide
which ones to keep and which ones to drop...

Just for reference, an epub file is just a normal zip file with html
files inside.  All you need to do to read it is unzip it into the
directory of your choice, then locate the html files inside the
directory structure, and simply open them with your browser. In my
personal opinion, that's way easier than the shoddy support that pdf
files have on the pc.

Of course, this won't work with DRM protected epubs, but otherwise,
it works like a charm, and this is the way I read all of my epub books.

Mostly because I haven't found a decent epub reader, but even if I
did, I'd probably keep using this format anyhow, just because it's
what I'm used to.

Hi.

The issue is that, starting a few releases back, Firefox decided to enable the cycling of tabs in recently used order with Control+Tab. This means that, using the shortcut, you can switch between two tabs easily, similar to how Alt+Tab works in Windows. The older behaviour switched to all tabs opened, and can be returned to this behaviour in the options, General dialog.

Gary,

But, what if you don't have sound to start with?

Well, as long as you know all the keyboard keys and its positions, specifically the letters (which you will know if you're using your computer for a reasonable short time), it's no biggie.
Press Windows+R, type SNDVOL and press page up a few times. It's as simple as that.

This should be one of the feature for the next release of NVDA Screen Reader. I might bring this up during the Lightning talk. 
Thanks

Hi Gary,

While you don't get answers about this, you can use this workaround.

  1. Press Windows+R
  2. Type sndvol
  3. You'll be on the mixer window, where you can change the general volume (which will increase/decrease the volume of the entire system) as well as change the volume for a specific app.
  4. Usually the mixer opens in the "system's volume" slider, so just press page up a few times and you should have your sound back.

Re: how do you access screen notifications with NVDA?

Thanks Marcio,

I will try these commands next time I get a notification.  I do not know which version of windows ten home addition I have, however, I do my best to keep it up to date.

Ibrahim,

How does one access the notifications that suddenly flash on the screen asking you to do something, like to check a setting, or to do an update or to check some application suggestions, etc…?

If you're using 1809 or above, shift+Windows+V. Otherwise, Windows+V.


I think in windows seven it used to be called hot balloons.

In Windows 10, they're called "Toast Notifications", if I'm not going wrong on this.

how do you access screen notifications with NVDA?

Ibrahim Abedrabbo
 

Hello folks,

How does one access the notifications that suddenly flash on the screen asking you to do something, like to check a setting, or to do an update or to check some application suggestions, etc…? I am using windows ten home addition with the latest version of NVDA. I think in windows seven it used to be called hot balloons.

Thanks in advance.

Can you delete contacts there? I still have that person’s name on the windows mail ten app. Even though I dumped her on the gmail site.  I thought that would do the trick.

Hi, Arleen,

 

Yes, I'm using gmail. What I did was install the thunderbird program. I set up my account and then I was taken to the gmail site. After signing in with my username and password, I hit H for headings and jumped down to a button that says "allow thunderbird to access your account. I hit the space bar on it and my messages downloaded to thunderbird

Hi, Arleen,

 

I think you have to hit enter on the list of contacts if I remember correct. You'll see a list of your contacts. Arrow down until you get to the one you want to get rid of. Use the applications key and arrow down to delete. That should get rid of that contact.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi

 

Go into the mail app and when you see your messages you will then need to tab a few times until you hear switch to people button then press the enter key or space bar.

  When it opens tab to When the next screen comes up tab about 4 times until you get to list of contacts.

 

You can then arrow down the list pick a person then use the application key then arrow down to delete and press the enter key it will ask you like are you sure then delete them out.

 

They will be gone then.

 

hope that helps.

then you might not have any saved in the address book. Just because they show in a email as a header it does not mean they are saved into the address book.


I just repeated the steps in mail on mine and i can not see even tabbing around those sections.
