Re: NVDA as a toolbox?

It would make no sense to have a forms mode by default option for browsing.  For one thing, the screen-reader would still speak in forms mode.  If you want the screen-reader not to interfere with your browsing, put it to sleep when you run the browser.  It is completely inactive then.  Do you know the sleep command?  I've used it so seldom that I'm not sure I remember it now but I'm sure others know it.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA as a toolbox?

Hello,


I can still use my eyes, although they are very week. I don't like the fact screenreaders still speak, but turning speech on and off frequently is cumbersome. It would be nice if there was an option to turn off the kind of speech I call "automatic feedback". I don't need focus reporting, automatic active window reporting, and other such things, but I'd like to have instant spoken feedback when I invoke screenreader command involving NVDA key. It would be also nice if there was a way to set form mode as a default for web browsing.


The suggestions above are meant to enable a "toolbox mode" for NVDA, where it silently sits in background, not interfering in common computer use, but ready to speak whenever it's asked to. It would really enhance my user experience when working in Windows.

Hi Tomas,


You can keep NVDA running and turn off many of the features you don't wish to hear by using the keystrokes NVDA +5, NVDA + 6 and NVDA + 7 which toggle on and off dynamic changes, and changes due to review and focus changes. Try those keystrokes and see if you get significantly less vocal feedback.

Re: Installing windows 10 with A Portable copy of NVDA

To be honest I'd shove in a borrowed full keyboard at least to start with. I've not installed win 10 forom scratch, or do you mean to updat it? I ythink at some point you have to rely on narrator for a bit, but I'd say why not install nvda on it beforehand and just not have it auto run?
At least then it will work on protected screens when windows boots up, the portable version cannot do this.

Hi all! How are you all? I just wanted to ask you,is it possible to install windows 10 with a portable copy of NVDA? I have the portable copy on my USV drive or thunmb drive. If so, waht are the steps in doing so? I'm jus wondering since I want to do this in a laptop computer that does not have an screen reader on it and it does not have the nonpad number keys. And I have another question, I want to use the NVDA key, which is the insert key, but since this computer does not have a nonpad where I can use it, how can I make the caps lock key to act as the NVDA key or insert key? I look forward in hering from you soon with any suggestions! regarding this matter. Thanks so much and God bless! regarding this matter!

Re: The Paypal form..

Maybe and its far from my thoughts to suggest you might have let it laps, but perhaps the card you specified is no longer valid, but it should then suggest you set up a payment method instead. I just cannot see where the problem is as it seems to be well protected against silly entries and normally suggests a course of action to you if it goes wrong
It might be something really daft like the currency is not allowed to be transferred in that country or something. Here in the UK its a bit hard to judge as everything defaults and it even gives you the exchange rate.

I'd very much appreciate this. I just tried to send money to my friend
again this morning and I get the same problem. Everything seems normal
until after I've filled in the amount I want to send and type in a brief
message. Next thing I tab to is a link saying please choose a payment
method. It used to bring up a screen with the choices of my bank account
or my Visa card. Now all that happens when I choose this link is Firefox
makes a familiar click and I'm right back with the amount reset to zero
and my message to my friend deleted out. I just tried this several
times this morning, and the behavior is totally circular--that is it's
just stuck in an endless loop and I never get to chose a payment method
or get to the page where it just says send money now. I did send a
message similar to this to PayPal and will see what they may have to say
about it. Something has obviously changed on their page setup and nvda
isn't catching it for me.

Thanks.

compatibility issues although if for some reason you're not running
the latest NVDA, you might want to hit the update button.

Then we have to get into making sure you have a valid payment method
on file, and looking at other things behind the scenes.

When something goes wrong, paypal has gotten decent at letting you
know. Near the top of the page there is usually a signpost that
tells you if there are errors. If you see one of those it would be
helpful if you sent us the text of the error.

Hi!
I use Paypal with Firefox all the time and never have problems with it. It's
possible that other browsers don't display the Paypal site quite as well as
Firefox does, but I haven't investigated that.
I've filled in several forms, on different websites, where it says "invalid
entry" in some of the ttext fields, but those words disappear as soon as I
fill it whatever is necessary, so I would guess that "invalid entry" must
simply mean that you haven't yet filled in the appropriate text.

In this case there is really no involvement in a new way. the only reasons why that link ofr button to do the donation fails are.
1 the button is not in focus
2 you misstyped something, but then it normally throws you back to the offending field to try again.

Yes you find this a lot. I think its because these fields are dynamic and nvda is attempting to read them as they update. Its a bit like google instant, they should be ways to stop this from happening but you just close your ears or cut and paste email and passwrd.

What add ins are in firefox?
Also of course have you tried a clean install of Firefox, as if its been updated it can end up a bit of a mess.
I'd currently not reckon you should use 48 beta or any of the 64bit builds of Firefox, all have some quirks. 46 is pretty stable, but 47 is slow on some machines.

I just donated 30 aus and OK the invalid input did come up as typing into
the boxes, but I suspect this is an artifact that until you finish it is
indeed wrong.
As usual had several goes at remembering the caps and lower case in the
password, and it eventually accepted it and sent me through when I clicked
the button or link for doing the donation.
My feeling here is that this is a browser issue if you cannot get it to
work, always try another browser. I did mention that the IE current updat is
a bit broken as far as some accessibility is concerned, but its very very
spcific it seems as most of the time its fine.

As I say I have no issue with the form in firefox 46 with nvda, so wondered if it was a browser issue. There have been button issues with ie11 recently reported for blind use.

Sorry, no on both for now. nvda is my only screen reader. This is a strange one. A year or so back they changed their page so much that it took me a while to figure it out. However, it still seems to be the same as it has always been. Everything works until the very last continue button which would have sent the money but it just sits there.

Don't know what's going on, but I can't use Pay Pal with nvda. It
appears to be just the same as it ever was, but after I do everything
and then the very last step of continue, nothing happens at all.
There are no error messages or anything. Can anyone tell me what they
may have changed? One thing I've been noticing is that nvda will
always say "invalid entry required" when I come to an edit field
there. Maybe they have really changed things so that I really need to
enter something invalid instead of my valid password.


Thanks.

hi.
they both have the property that you can report your bugs and issues.
for example: you can report your bug about using libreoffice in this
site after registration.
www.bugs.libreoffice.org
i prefer libreoffice for many reasons, like:
support for different languages in its menu,
(i mean its user interface)
support all formats of microsoft office and many programs,
more features in comparission to openoffice, and the most important,
its group which are very friendly, kind, honest and intimate.

Hello,

I have tried Libre office both with NVDA and jaws. In both cases it's
got a nasty habit at least on my machines of loosing focus, a lot,
like coming out of menus, saving documents, it's quite frustrating.
I've since uninstalled it.

I looked into this last year. How to Geek has a good comparison
article:
http://www.howtogeek.com/187663/openoffice-vs.-libreoffice-whats-the-difference-and-which-should-you-use/

Basically LibreOffice has been more frequently updated and has a
slightly
more "classic" (Say Microsoft Office pre the ribbon) look and Open
Office
has a few more side bar options.

In terms of accessibility I'm not sure which is ahead though being
updated
more often, if you encounter a problem, it might be easier to get it
addressed in LIbreOffice.

Note that there is also Open365, an online office suite based on
LibreOffice: https://open365.io/

Essentially it looks similar to LibreOffice but runs in a browser. As
you
can probably guess..... steer clear of that one ;) I tried it a month
or
so
ago and while I could get around the system tray component, the actual
say
word processor was unusable. Even aside from accessibility issues
(which
were enough to nix it on their own - it was sooo slow! I couldn't put
up
with it on that basis alone
either. I'm on ADSL 2 and while I wouldn't boast it to be the best
connection in the world, it's not THAT bad that it should have made that
much difference.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Installing windows 10 with A Portable copy of NVDA

Hi Helga


Is the upgrade of Windows from a usb stick or a upgrade from the pc?


There is a program that you can use for a clean install but you must have your serail number this can be found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

It is called Windows PE and on that page is a link to the website of where you can get it from. I have not used it but others have.


The second question is under the keyboard settings on your pc there are 3 check boxs one for the insert key one for the extended insert key and the last for the capslock key. Check the last one and you should be able to use the capslock key. If you need to use the capslock key like normal you have to hit it 2 times until you hear it go on and 2 times to make it go off.


On my pc here i have all 3 checked and i can use any combo of them, but then again I have all 3 keys.


Your computer might also have a extended insert key or a insert key there some where it might be a good idea for some one to have a look just in case there is.

If I hit CTRL plus N for a new message or CTRL plus R to reply to a message in the Windows 10 Mail app, NVDA says “Message edit read only” and then nothing, whether I arrow back to correct something or just keep typing. Review mode does not work either.

 

In a new message, it does not speak as I type the Subject, but if I go back to correct a word it does speak the subject.

 

Is there a trick to getting it to speak text as I type?

 

I have NVDA set to speak words, not characters. I think I am up to date with NVDA at version 2016.2.1 and the Mail app at version 17. Brian


Re: free CD-burning program that will work well with NVDA

 

What is interesting, opencandy itself is not malware but its list of programs are not what you would want in fact they seem to be one sided.
For a while I had some codecs that advocated for other opensource software including vlc of all things.
But later on it was just stuff I don't want.

I'm sure there are many more. A word of warning if the installer uses
opencandy, sometimes this does not work with nvda making it hard to
get past the ;suggested' software. Instead run it from a command
