Re: Pycharm with nvda

Jonathan COHN
 

I would recommend using a true text editor when working with Python  code. Notepad++ works fairly well. I have also heard good things about visual studio.

If you are throwing commands at python interpreter, the NVDA console could be used but there are several advantages to using an independent editor that also understands Python syntax.

Which version of pycharm is accessible with nvda? I don't get sound feedback during writing code despite type word and character is on. Nvda doesn't read anything of menu bar.

Yeah, just press NVDA key + F12, by default.


moderated Re: Finding out of time in Nvda

 

And as a general helpful tip for this sort of thing, always check the Quick Commands Guide, which is simple when NVDA's running:

NVDA Key + N, H, Q   Opens the Quick Commands Reference in your default web browser.  Then search based on a keyword related to the command you're seeking.  Doing so for the word time takes you straight to the Report Date/Time command, which Monte's already given.

Re: Problem With Microsoft Insiders Page For Downloading and Testing The New Edge Browser

Once you click on the Windows 10 button for download, scroll down to the bottom of page. You'll notice a link tagged "Accept and download." You click/press [Enter] on it to begin the download process. There are also two other check boxes for acceptance of terms (Which are checked as default) right above that link.


Whenever you encounter a situation when clicking on a link or button element on a webpage and nothing seems to happen, scroll down to the very bottom of the page. ([Ctrl+End]) Then start arrowing up to locate related information linked to what you clicked. You can also navigate to the very top of the page ([Ctrl+Home]) and start arrowing down. There's usually some sort of Html popover page that has been triggered that you need to interact with to continue the process.

Hi Group,

Thanks for the heads up on this one. Usually, I'm pretty good at scopingout such issues, but this time, you had to read through the whole license agreement and then way at the very end was an actual link that said 'accept and download.'  A bit clumsy, but usable once you know what is going on.

That wasn't for clickable items.  That was for mouse over links.  But perhaps something like that might be done for what I'm discussing.  The problem is how the screen-reader would know when to report something.  With mouse over links it did so when you used a special mouse over command, but this would be for activating standard controls.

I'll look at the page but my question before looking is whether the I agree button is there before you activate the button.  Whether it is or not, the thread brings up a screen-reader question.  Could NVDA be made to know when the screen changes in response to an action?  For example, now and then, something will come up or change on a web page when a user activates a button that the user doesn't expect or know about.  It wouldn't be a good idea to have screen-readers automatically read every change that occurs on screen.  But in specific instances, it would be important.

There is an agree etc that opens up below the dl section. If you use your button nav you should be able to find it. After that, go back up to the dl section after excepting the license agreement.

Re: Windows10.1903 and NVDA’s saying Volume level?

 

I do like it except that it will repeat it constantly when adjusting and lag behind in doing so.

When you plug or unplug a speaker or headset the volume is also announced.

I've just come across a problem and after testing it on google chrome

I'm trying to read a chapter of a story but, halfway down NVDA would

restart. I don't know if it's because of the amount of text or what

but, I've never had this problem before.

 

The restarts happens when it gets to the line. "Things were taking a

Winston had eradicated."

Re: Problem With Microsoft Insiders Page For Downloading and Testing The New Edge Browser

 

Post 3 explained how to do it, but I want to say it again for anybody who refuses to, or does not know how to, look at threads on the website. I'm not following this thread, so it's very possible I'm adding to a repeating chain as we speak, but anyway, here we go!

  1. After hitting enter on the download button, there is a pop out module, thing, that dims the screen a bit. For screen reader users, it has a giant heading that says terms and agreement.
  2. Once focus is on that heading, enter focus mode and then hit tab. Sure, you can do this without focus mode, but whatever.
  3. Hit enter on the link that says, agree and download.

I spent five minutes looking for a checkbox, a button, something other than a link.

If it helps, sighted people think the page is broken too. For sighties, I'm told, it appears in a very tiny square window at the bottom right of the screen.

I'm waiting on the beta. All the same, I'm extremely excited for the release of this new Edge. I can't wait to replace this Edge with the new stable Edge.

Re: Problem With Microsoft Insiders Page For Downloading and Testing The New Edge Browser

 

This has been discussed at length on the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users forum, and it's not just you and it's not just screen reader users.  That page is more than a bit of an accessibility nightmare even for those of us trying to simply point and click.

My response on the Win10 group, with a direct download link, because the page is "irregular" in more ways than one:  https://win10.groups.io/g/win10/message/35885 

Direct download link for Development MS-Edge, which brings up a save dialog immediately (and I just tested it and it's still working):

All indications are that the issues with this page are not directly related to any screen reader, but due to irregular web coding.
