Re: Making NVDA reconsider focus

Cohn, Jonathan
 

I was thinking that even just a insert-F1 listing of what is the NVDA current focus and what screen shows focus as might be helpful.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Making NVDA reconsider focus

 

Re my comment about other programs "stealing focus", I phrased that badly - while that's the way it appears to NVDA, you are right, in many cases, you can press all the usual keystrokes and the correct things happen in the program as they normally would, but NVDA does not report them because it has been trapped by some invisible overlay the other program has put on the screen.  In some cases, moving the focus away and back does fix that issue.

 

Similarly with the DLL registration issue, it might not cause an issue for a sighted user, but it affects how NVDA collects its information.  If it isn't happening consistently then as you say, it may not be that.

 

The best I can suggest, is if you could set NVDA's log level to debug, try to recreate the issue, and send us a copy of the log from it.

 

Kind regards

I understood your initial problem differently--I do not have the message now

the focus was correctly associated with a field, and then for some reason got
lost, thus requiring a double alt-tab to re-acquire.

Re: Making NVDA reconsider focus

It might be enough, but the issue could also be caused by things which happen earlier.  For instance, an error occurring (in NVDA) when trying to display the program window.  In that case, the most useful information would come from the log just before the loss of focus.

In any case, you could provide both by recreating the issue, pressing NVDA+F1 and copying everything (the focus information is presented at the end of the log on that screen).

hi.
i have jaws and Nvda on my laptop. probably the best option is to turn off one screen reader and start the other. press Nvda plus q to exit Nvda. press control alt j to start jaws. depending on your keyboard layout press caps lock or insert plus f4 to exit jaws.

I think both can run at the same time but that would be confusing lol.

Re: Using both NVDA and JAWS

Unless this has changed, control alt j is not automatically assigned as a shortcut by JAWS.  I haven't used JAWS for many years but in the past, users would set that short cut command using the shortcut JAWS would put on the desktop. 
 
Unless you know the shortcut is there, with NVDA running, go to the desktop, press home then type j until you get to JAWS.  Remember how many times you pressed j so you can start JAWS without control alt j.  After you press j the needed number of times, press enter.
 
If you use Windows key m to go to the desktop, to be sure you are on it when no screen-reader is running, press it three times. 
 
I believe Windows key d takes you to the desktop reliably the first time you execute the command but on some keyboards, it is a very inconvenient command to use and Windows key m three times is far more convenient.

Re: Using both NVDA and JAWS

The assigning of the hotkey is not automatic,. And I had thought the startup wizard allowed an opportunity to set one, but I just checked, and it doesn’t, so you would have to do it the traditional way.

 

Just my opinion of course, but hitting j several times until you (hopefully) get to the right programme seems a bit tenuous and too much like guesswork, to me. Much easier to just invoke the run box and type in the name of the jaws version you have installed and want to run. By now I’m probably going to start attaining the nickname Mr. Run-box around here. *grins*

Yes, control alt J is used for jaws short cut.  It’s after you set it up after installing jaws.  If Jaws with the letter J is on the desktop then you hit J once.  If you hit J with no screen reader  then Jaws will come up. Same with NVDAonly if you hit n or control alt n for NVDA to come up.

It will be a din if you had both Jaws and NVDA run at the same time. I’ve had that happen on my old 7 box.  For some reason the 7 box froze and I could not get any of the screen reders up.  I got Jaws running then NVDA still there was silence.  Then suddenly they both started talking.s

Re: Using both NVDA and JAWS

It isn't guesswork if you prepare.  It is much more convenient to assign a shortcut key but I explained how to run JAWS without one because one isn't automatically assigned.  When NVDA is running, you go to the desktop, press home, and type j until you get to the JAWS icon.  You count the number of times.  Then you know how many times to press J when no screen-readers are running.  Knowing how to do things without speech and having confidence that you can is a skill that is useful at times.  It can help you troubleshoot on occasion.  I'll provide an example or two if people are interested.
 
and there may be times you don't want control j as the JAWS shortcut.  You may not want one at all.  I almost never use JAWS but I want to demo available in case it is useful to run it.  Now and then, I would accidentally execute the JAWS control alt j shortcut.  Maybe I would be executing control alt h and my finger would accidently press j at the same time.  I didn't want the inconvenience of having JAWS start now and then accidently.  I didn't want to use another shortcut key because I use a lot of them.  So I have no shortcut key assigned to JAWS.  If I want to run it, I unload NVDA, go to the desktop, press home, type j once, and press enter.  On my system one press of j takes me to the JAWS icon.

Re: twitter accessibility

Sylvie Duchateau
 

Hello,

As other on the list previously said, you can use twitter's web site with NVDA rather well.

Twitter has implemented their own shortcuts, similar to nvda browsing keys. So, if you want to use twitter's hotkeys, press nvda+shift+space bar to disable single key navigation of NVDA.

Press n to write a new tweet.

l to like a tweet

r to reply to a tweet ...

To access the complete short cut list, do the following:

  • Use the tab key or type b to reach the item "profile and settings" announced as a button with sub-menu by NVDA. I think you need to type b threee times to reach this sub menu.
  • Enable forms mode by pressing nvda+space bar.
  • Type enter to open the submenu.
  • Use the down arrow key to go through the menu items. On my account, NVDA announces there are 13 items or so, go to the 10th called "keyboard shortcuts".
  • Press enter. This will open a dialogue. You will be on the close button that allows you to leave this dialogue. You can also close it by pressing the escape key. It make take some time before it closes.
  • The shortcuts are displayed in a table.

Twitter is coded to send you alert messages when a tweet arrives, and tells you what to press if you want to read it.

Do not hesitate if you have further questions.

Best

Sylvie

Exact cursor position in Power Point

Rick
 

Hello:

 

I am creating a Power Point presentation and I need to place various objects (e.g. pictures and text boxes) on my slides. I know that I can manage the size and

location of these objects to prevent overlap, but in some instances, I want them to overlap to give the illusion of text wrapping around an image. For example, I may have a long line of text followed by several shorter lines and I want to position an image at the end of these shorter lines of text, so knowing the position of the ending characters on these lines of text is desirable.

 

Is there a way in Power point to determine the exact position (relative to the slide or the containing object) of characters within a line of text in a text box using NVDA?

 

Thanks, Rick

Hi Dan,

 

Numpad 5 is the desktop keyboard layout keystroke for "report current word in review".  If you have a laptop which does not have a dedicated numberpad, you might consider setting NVDA to use laptop keyboard layout from NVDA's keyboard settings (press NVDA+control+k to open the keyboard settings directly).  If you are using laptop keyboard layout, the command to report the current word is NVDA+control+. (NVDA, control, full stop or period).

 

Note on many laptops, the Fn key can be used with other keys as the number pad.  Usually this uses the 7, 8 and 9 on the number row as those keys, U, I, O as 4, 5, 6 and K, L, ; as 1, 2, 3 etc.  You'd have to work out which key did "numlock" in that case to ensure it was "off" (with numlock on, pressing numpad 5 will result in the number 5 being pressed in any case).

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

To possibly add clarity, or to make it more muddy depending on your prospective:

The -r option to nvda actually means "replace", not "restart". It replaces any running NVDA version with the one you just ran with -r. If no NVDA version is running, it doesn't have anything to replace, so just starts normally.

Therefore it is always possible, and perhaps even preferred, to start NVDA with the -r flag. Which is why the default shortcut uses it. It will always start NVDA, whether or not there is a version already running.

Hopefully the necessity to use -r will go away. in some future version, if enough people prefer that (https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8320).

on my machine, alt control backslash starts NVDA, and alt control right-bracket starts jaws. That is because I don't want the default NVDA shortcut to conflict with some keyboard shortcuts inside google docs, sheets, and slides in chrome and firefox.

Perry and others,

I didn't know this when I posted before, but there is discussion of this issue on GitHub, which I have just found. It would probably be helpful if you could post your experiences there as well, along with debug logs if any, although likely they will be the same as what has already been posted. I intend to add my own information the next time I run into this.

This issue needs as much attention as it can get, as it is still on-going for many of us. The URL is:
