Re: nvda gets stuck on something called landscape

Yeah, I wasn’t really thinking properly yet when I wrote that last message; if you have a standard PC monitor you will probably want it to display in landscape rather than portrait, which is, I think, generally more suited for phones and such with narrow displays.

sounds like a display issue. I would not change it as if you do your sightlings will have to turn their head sideways to see the screen properly. Have you tried hitting windows d to get to the desktop? I'm guessing now, also check for driver updates just in case?

Well, not sure, but it sounds like screen orientation. Never had this come up with windows but I definitely keep my phone locked in portrait rather than landscape mode. Um, could you have turned on tablet mode by accident?

Community add-ons notice: Audio Themes add-on removed from stable distribution channel on add-ons website

 

Dear NVDA community,

 

Please circulate the following community-wide notice to all channels devoted to NVDA and other places:

 

Over the last few months, the add-ons community has received countless compatibility reports regarding Audio Themes 3D add-on. The latest of these, as detailed in a recent NVDA issue filed on GitHub, describes a change made to 2019.2 where the add-on would fail to start correctly due to a missing component in NvDA settings interface used by this add-on. Given this bug, coupled with other bugs reported from the NVDA community, the add-ons website maintainers decided to pull Audio Themes 3D from stable channel distribution until reported bugs are resolved. Note that this add-on will remain under development section and translations will continue to be generated, and updates for this will be checked by Add-on Updater.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

If I download the compact version of the voice on the desktop and use that to make a another portable version will that make the voice more responsive on the laptop?

The second time it happens, posting privileges will be revoked for one month, and the final time will be a perminent revokation of posting privileges.

we have over 1000 members on this list, we need to do our best to stick to the topic at hand, which is NVDA.

After experimenting further and trying different things, it appears to depend on where you are when the program opens.  I can see what you are describing if I am not in the address bar when the program opens.  If I am there, pressing alt does nothing.  I have the about:blank page open and I am usually in the address bar when the program opens, which explains why I didn't see what you described when I tried it.

Gene,

          While you may be having difficulties, the instruction that ALT throws focus to the menu button in any Chromium-based browser I've ever touched that has one is beyond question.  It doesn't cause the menu to open, it does nothing but throw focus to the menu button at the upper rightmost position on the browser controls.  It even does that in the Chromium-based Edge browser.

          Left arrowing after that will take you, control by control, through what's there, eventually including the omnibar (address box), which is where the traversal by left arrowing hits its end point.

Re: Accessibility of Free Website Creators

 

To actually answer your question, freewebs.com is reasonably accessible, with a few unlabeled buttons that can be OCR'd if you really need to know the button. But, the best bet, as of now, is wordpress.com. Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, are not accessible with the keyboard at all. Give free webs dot com a try and if that does not work, use wordpress.com. Sincerely, a person who actually tried to answer your question.

hello all!
winaero was so kind to create a new version of ribbondisabler version 4!
after the last update of windows 10 there was an error message while activate the ribbondisabler version 3.1
so every one has to work with the ribon, if you like or not.
when you start the ribbondisabler version 3.1 now, there is a pop-up that a new version is availlable do you want to download yes or no.
press yes and you will go to the website where you can download the new version 4 of ribbondisabler.
succes!

Yes, that's why!
Each extension installed should have its own "button sub menu"
appeared after pressing the alt button, followed by the left arrow.

It's fairly straightforward, at least if you're using Chrome,

The

1.. Hit ALT to throw focus to the Chrome menu button.
2.. Hit Right Arrow the number of times necessary, based on what
extensions you may have installed, to land on the uBlock Origin button.
3.. Hit Enter to open the uBlock Origin dropdown.
4.. Hit TAB once to get to the button you're looking for. Listen to
what
NVDA says, because you can turn of uBlock origin for the site as a whole
or
just the specific page you're currently on.
