I fully agree, it is one of my most used addons and highly valueable.

Hi all!

I use the Emoticons NVDA add-on all the time!

It is so much easier to just press:

Caps lock+I and down arrow through the smiles, than it is to use the Windows 10 Emoji panel!

I still can not access that very well, and I constantly use the NVDA add-on!

It is my third favorite add-on behind Windows 10 App Essentials, and Golden Cursor LOL!

Please keep that add-on!

Thanks guys for everything.

While emoticons and emoji are often thought of interchangeably, and there are even certain e-mail clients that will convert typed emoticons to their emoji equivalent, there are still many that do not.

Based on the description of the add-on I would imagine it is still entirely useful in any context where an e-mail message is in plain text and contains emoticons.

Re: Reading PDF Files with NVDA - How to?

 

Arlene,

          Windows 10 (and maybe 8.1, I can't recall) assigns Edge as the default app for PDF files.   If you wish for PDFs to be opened by something else, like Adobe Reader DC or another PDF reader of your choosing that's already installed on your system:

1. Open Settings, Apps, Default Apps Pane

2.  Navigate to the Choose default apps by file type link then activate it.

3.  When the Choose default apps by file type dialog opens, get yourself to the entry for PDF (which may take a while, as I have not found any quick and easy way to get through the list - someone else may be able to jump in with the way to quickly navigate here).   Your default app will show as Edge, and that is a button, so activate it.

4. You will be presented with the Choose an app pop-up, and you can TAB through the apps presented until you find your PDF reader of choice.  Hit Enter to select it.

5.  ALT+F4 to close the Choose default apps by file type dialog.

At this point when you have a PDF file that needs to be opened it should open in your chosen PDF reader rather than Edge.

For earlier versions of Windows this is accomplished similarly, but via Control Panel, Default Programs, Associate a file type or protocol with a program link.

Re reading the group emails and instructions - do you mean you can read the emails fine, you just can't follow the instructions?  (If so, please let us know which specific ones if the rest of this doesn't help).

Firefox has a built-in PDF viewer, but it isn't as accessible as Adobe Reader.  In Firefox press ALT+T then O to go to the options. TAB down to "Search file types or applications", type PDF and press ENTER.  Then press TAB once to the list of file types and PDF.  Tab again to "Preview in Firefox" and down arrow to "Use Adobe Reader DC".  PDF files you open from web pages should now open in Adobe reader.

You should be able to read PDF files in Adobe reader by either using NVDA's reading commands (eg say all with NVDA+down arrow or NVDA+A) or arrows etc.  If the file won't read at all, it's likely it is made as an image of text.  In that case you can try using NVDA's OCR function to read it - press NVDA+R to recognise, then use the reading commands.  If it is an image of text, however, it is worth writing to the original author to advise them that it is not accessible, as OCR does have its limiations.

I haven't tried Atlantis lately, so I can't comment on how well it works.  If it isn't accessible (and I'll leave it to others to offer more wisdom on that), then you might consider Jarte as a word processor which is not Word, or Libre Office.

Hello,
I don't know if NVDA has this feature.
In some circumstances, there are website that are not very accessible
and they use some graphic to describe the state of an element.
For example, you can find a table of comparison of products, where there
is a graphic for "yes" and a graphic for "no".
Sometime this graphics can tell you if a checkbox is checked or not.
With NVDA I didn't find the manner to read this sort of  web pages, and
I downloaded the demo of Jaws for Windows after ... 4 years? In order to
read them.
Jaws is able to read this sort of images if the user want it, and I'd
like NVDA could give me the same choice.
Is it possible?
Can I open a ticket or it is a wast of time?
Thank you!

Re: Emoticons add on?

 

While emoticons and emoji are often thought of interchangeably, and there are even certain e-mail clients that will convert typed emoticons to their emoji equivalent, there are still many that do not.

Based on the description of the add-on I would imagine it is still entirely useful in any context where an e-mail message is in plain text and contains emoticons.

Re: Reading PDF Files with NVDA - How to?

 

It's your own e-mail, so if you don't understand it then . . .

Have you run the accessibility wizard in Acrobat Reader DC?    Are you trying to read in Acrobat Reader DC itself?  Are you trying to read the PDF within Firefox using the Reader plug-in?

It's impossible to give advice of any value unless the exact circumstances of where the problem is occurring are accurately described.

Internet Explorer may work better on certain pages
My observation, as time has gone by, is that this is very, very seldom the case except on sites that have not changed in ages and that use old MS-specific extensions in their HTML coding.

My general advice is to use IE as a very last resort with any webpage, as it is the most likely to have problems with those following current coding practice.   As you previously noted, the only updates IE has been receiving for some time now are security updates, and that's woefully insufficient for keeping a fully functioning web browser.   There are some sites that will not even "allow entrance" if they detect IE is the browser and tell you directly to try with a different browser.

I also, as general advice, tell everyone to keep all their software updated to the latest version.   There will always be occasional troubles, whether you keep older versions or update to newer ones, but the problems with current ones will be examined and fixed much more rapidly than older versions, which may never get fixed at all.

Sometimes it takes working with several browsers to determine whether the fault lies with the page, the browser, or the screen reader.   It's generally one from that list.
