Hi Tiler,

thank you for help.

I am glad, I needn't uninstall Nvda.

Jarek

Dne 11.06.2019 v 9:38 Tyler Spivey napsal(a):

From the NVDA menu, select Tools, Manage add-ons.
You can then select the addon you want to uninstall from the list and press Remove. Once you press Close, NVDA will ask to restart itself. Once you do that, the addon is uninstalled.

I'll consider more seriously submitting a ticket but as I think about it more, I remember more clearly that someone said on list that the developers considered my list comments on this question in the past and didn't want to change it. That was a few years ago and, while I doubt the response will be different, I may try again.  And if others agree with me and comment on the ticket, maybe that will help, though I'm not optimistic.

Well if you do decide to do it, it is extremely little trouble.

Go to https://github.com, and create an account, which you can do
right on the homepage, by entering a username, your email address, and a
password.

After your account is setup, go to: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

There will be an add an issue button, or similar. Push it, fill out the template
for feature request, submit it, and that's pretty much it.

Of course, it doesn't hurt to search existing issues to see if what you propose
is already out there, so you can read and comment on that instead, but that can
be done from the same place.

Re: links

Quentin Christensen
 

I wrote up a piece on filing issues for In-Process last week, but since everything else I wrote already took up more than I often say, I held it over for next edition.  It's fairly straightforward though, as Luke said, but of course if you get stuck, please do let us know.

I am happy to file issues I can recreate myself (and occasionally ones I can't if someone gives me enough info).  One reason we encourage people to file issues themselves is that when the issue is addressed, often a special "try" build is created to test just that feature - If the original person who reported it is the one who filed the issue, they will see the reply and the link to download that test build so they can test whether it is indeed fixed.

Kind regards

Quentin.

I haven't gone to the trouble of learning how to create a ticket since I have so few issues to submit and since all or almost all of them were considered by the developers in the past when I made comments about them on the list, at least that is my impression.  I may create a ticket for one or two of these items, just to be sure.

No settings dialog in preferences for Weather Plus

Doug Lawlor
 

Hello all, 

I have the Weather Plus addon installed but I don't see a preferences dialog in the NVDA preferences menu. The addon is enabled. Removing and installing the addon does not fix this. 
I was originally running the addon with the NVDA beta and switched back to stable. Now the addon is not functioning for some reason. 

This looks like a cool addon. Looking forward to getting it working again. 

Thanks in advance, 

Doug


using nvda with google docs

Ashley Wayne
 

Hi all,

When I’m in a document in docs, I can’t seem to read any of the actual document text.  NVDA will say “document content edit, multiline.” But I don’t see any actual text.  It just says blank.  What am I missing here?  Thanks so much for any help.

That is the expected behavior. Have you tried creating a configuration profile to handle this?

Create a profile that triggers when SMTT opens.
Then, open SMTT, and put NVDA to Sleep.
Last, press NVDA+ctrl+c, which should save the configuration for you.

It would be worth first updating all those to the latest versions (or getting rid of them if you don't use them).  If that doesn't work, try restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled - press NVDA+Q then down arrow to "restart with add-ons disabled" and press enter - and see whether the issue persists without add-ons.

Re: links

Gene
 

To make sure you are in object navigation mode, for the desktop, issue the command NVDA key numpad 1.  Hold the NVDA key and press numpad 1.  You will either hear that you are in objectnavigation mode or you will hear something else.  Press it repeatedly until you hear either something like object navigation or something like no previous mode.  Object navigation is the first mode.
To move from object navigation to whatever modes are available, use NVDA key numpad 7. 
 
Unless this has changed in recent versions of NVDA that I haven't used, numpad 5 doesn't read the current object unless you are in object navigation mode or unless you are in screen review mode and you are on the current object while in screen review mode. It reads your current position in screen review mode. 
 
Also, it would make no sense for that command to switch you to object navigation mode.  If you are in screen review mode, you want to review the screen and not be moved into a different mode when issuing a read command such as read current item.
