Re: new keyboard issue

 

Quentin,
The first thing I'd do is to try to work out which model you have, and look for an updated driver from the manufacturer.
As it is a laptop keyboard, could you please tell me how can I find what's the model? Would it be on the Devices Manager?

Cheers,

Re: Problem about NVDA control and arrow keys

 

Quentin,
Re your issue, the only thing I can think of is your right arrow perhaps serving a dual function and you need to press Fn or something to make it work normally? Can you press right arrow otherwise? Trying it myself here, I can move in both directions around the synth setting ring in both desktop and laptop keyboard layouts.
Well it's technically the case, but for doing the other function I need to press FN with the arrow. If I only press right arrow it's the default behavior :)

If you turn on input help (NVDA+1) and then press the keystroke, what does NVDA report?
Nothing at all, and this was how I found it out. At first I thought it was my NVDA configured incorrectly but after checking the gestures and testing with input help turned on, it turned out that it's not the case.

I guess I'll just have to deal with it, anyway :(

Re: Problem about NVDA control and arrow keys

 

Luke,
1. Change the order in which you press the modifiers. That has a slim chance of working.
Tested, not working :(

2. Use a different modifier key.
* If control is required, and the control key you normally use doesn't work, try the other one. Same with shift and alt.
Ok it definitely worked (after a good few acrobatic sessions).
Well, of course I won't be using it because sooner or later who knows in what it could result to my arms :) but this was a good (and fun) experiment.

3. If you can't modify your choice of modifiers to solve the problem, either because it's too uncomfortable or because it just doesn't work, you are left with remapping the command (and probably its related command, such as the one to go in the other direction) in gesture configuration, to a set of commands that actually work.
Honestly I'mnot feeling like doing it. Fortunately, it seems like it's only happening with this combo so oh well, I can live without it after all.

Thanks for your answer. It's indeed much appreciated! Now I know that if I ever need to do it, and if I really need, I have at least one way to achieve it :)

Re: Editing a Cell in Microsoft Excel

Quentin Christensen
 

Which version of NVDA are you using?  There was an issue in Office 365 and 2016 (possibly not Office 2013, I can't recall) where in-cell editing wasn't read.  This was a bug in Office but we did implement a workaround in NVDA 2019.1.

If using an older version of NVDA, then yes, the earlier suggestion of going into Excel's options and disabled in-cell editing should work.  What that option does is mostly visual - it changes whether the caret appears in the cell itself to edit the contents, or in the formula bar.  From a useability point of view they should work the same.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Who would have thought that disabling the editing of cells would, in fact, enable the editing of cells with a screen reader.  As I noted in my first message, the problem affected JAWS and NVDA in exactly the same way .
I was fearing that the problem stemmed from our overly-paranoid security conscious IT department. We have so many things locked down that just working is sometimes hard.
Again, however, thank you.  I am sending this message, not just to say thank you (those tend to clutter list serves, but to let others know that the prescribed fix, which actually seems silly and counterintuitive, really works.
I am surprised it is not more widely published.

Re: Making NVDA reconsider focus

Quentin Christensen
 

Is it one browser particularly or all browsers which do this?  Certainly it's not desired behaviour, but I can't replicate it myself just now.

Two things I can think to try though:
- Are you using any add-ons which might steal focus or interrupt what is happening when you start your Browser?  Dropbox (from memory) did this at one point in Word, and I've heard of several anti-virus programs which do similar things.

- Otherwise, you could try running the COM registration fixing tool from NVDA's Tools menu.  This is designed to ensure that all needed DLL files are registered correctly.  Generally programs do this when they are installed, however sometimes installing or uninstalling programs can inadvertently deregister DLLs.

Regards

Quentin.

Sure! The prime example is when I launch a program, such as a browser. A few seconds later, I know I'm in the address bar, and a sighted person can confirm this to me, but there's no speech indicating this. Focus is really in the address bar, and I can type into it. It's just that NVDA hasn't tracked it. Alt+tabbing out then back in resolves it for the moment.

Re: new keyboard issue

Quentin Christensen
 

Interesting, I've seen keyboards which can only accept two keys or three keys at once, but generally you can press any two (or three) keys on the keyboard in that case - odd that it limits some of the keys.

As it's an issue with either the hardware or driver for the keyboard, there isn't much that can be done by anyone else. The first thing I'd do is to try to work out which model you have, and look for an updated driver from the manufacturer.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Tyler,
It's something you just have to deal with. That keyboard can't handle that particular combination of keys pressed at the same time.
As apparently I also have this problem, I'd like to know, isn't there  any workaround for cases like ours?
Plus, why that happens? I mean, apparently we don't have a clue about which combo the keyboard will or not be capable of handling until we put it to work. Isn't it bad practice from the manufacturer's side?

Re: Problem about NVDA control and arrow keys

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Marcio,

NVDA+control+left and right is correct to move through the synth settings ring if NVDA is set to desktop keyboard layout.  If set to laptop keyboard layout, then your command of NVDA+control+shift+arrows is correct.

Re your issue, the only thing I can think of is your right arrow perhaps serving a dual function and you need to press Fn or something to make it work normally?  Can you press right arrow otherwise?  Trying it myself here, I can move in both directions around the synth setting ring in both desktop and laptop keyboard layouts.

If you turn on input help (NVDA+1) and then press the keystroke, what does NVDA report? (NVDA+1 again to turn input help off).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Surendra,

Actually, the command is Control+Shift+NVDA+Right/Left arrows to move through the options and Control+Shit+NVDA+Up/Down arrows to configure the option you've selected.

Hope this helps :)

On a related note, I just discovered something curious.
Here, Control+Shift+NVDA+Left arrow works like a charm. However, the same isn't true for the command using the right arrow. In fact, the problem seems to be with the combo Control+Insert+Right arrow.
Can anyone tell me why that is happening? Would my keyboard not be capable of processing this combo at once?

Thanks a lot.

Re: Problem about NVDA control and arrow keys

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Surendra,

Assuming you are using NVDA in desktop keyboard layout, then NVDA+control+left and right arrows are correct for what you are trying to do.  (If using NVDA in laptop layout, then Marcio's post is correct and the keystroke is NVDA+control+shift+arrows)  Firstly, check that num lock is "off" if you are using the numpad insert as your NVDA modifier key.  Are you using any add-ons?  If you restart NVDA with add-ons disabled (press NVDA+Q then down arrow to "restart with add-ons disabled" and press enter) does the issue still occur?

If so, if you could send a copy of your log to info@..., I can have a look.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: the newest braille display?

David Csercsics
 

The last I heard, it would only be available posibly for preorder in the UK. You could sign up to potentially have yours shipped by the 31st of October, 2019. They are apparently only making 40 of them. Other people could have a "similar opportunity  some time later." So probably nothing to get excited about. Here is the link.

Re: accessible e-book creation?

 

It maybe easier, to get your html files and either add then manually into one big file, as html or make a pdf or simply have the entire book in a huge text file, then using codex you can make a chm file, epub and other things.

I am not sure what the easiest way would be to make the book but in a word processer with the chapters in one huge file, you can make an epub easily enough.

Hi list ken with a question.  This past week at the national federation of the blind convention,  one of the recipients of the baloton award was the manufacturer of a new braille display.  It is a company in the UK.  It is supposedly is a nine line 360 cell devise.  Is this out now or is it a prototype and if it’s available is there anyone on list who might be able to tell when NVDA will be able to support it

The fastest way would be to go to the 64bit version of Office 365 as long you have a 64bit Windows.

But don’t forget that you would have to uninstall and re-install Office and that would lead to loosing your Outlook settings.

labeling the button objects in decTalk speak windows

Hi,

In jaws I can turn on its accessibility driver, and then the jaws cursor shows me the graphics in the old windows95 decTalk speak window notepad-type applications and I can click the graphics for play, different voices, rate faster, rate slower, and so on. Only after turning on the legacy accessibility driver does this work. So my question is this, how can I easily, as a person who is not a programmer, *easily* label these buttons with NVDA? I turned on speak tooltips and routed the mouse but there are no tooltips, OCR does not help either. Can someone please make an addon so I can relabel and reclass objects as I come across them using object navigation, please?

But, when I press alt-1-9 I just get the message (Not in a message window).

This is when I am in a message.

 

Any ideas how I can resolve this?

 

Thanks so much for any help.

Sam

 


Re: mumble with nvda?

Yes. There's a bug with the keyboard hook which breaks NVDA's use of the keyboard while in Mumble.
The fix is to deal with it long enough to go to options, Settings, Shortcuts and shift+tab until you find Enable Windows hooks and uncheck it. There's also a .reg file floating around if you prefer that.

If this isn't in your version, upgrade to 1.3 RC.

Mumble is a voice chat program.
