Re: greetings from a new user, making transition from JAWS2018 using Win10 and looking for tips and tricks and default program suggestions

Mallard <mallard@...>
 

Hello PJ,


Welcome to this group, and I'm sure you'll enjoy your experience with NVDA.


I've been using it exclusively since 2009, and I've certainly seen it grow.


From what I read and hear from other users, The two screen readers both have features that are better than the other, but NvDA is definitely an excellent product.


About the NVDA Key:  I use both the Insert (or 0) on the keypad, and the Capslock.


This setup comes in handy, because if you have to go to the NVDA menu, for example, you can press Capslock with your left hand and the letter N with your right hand, and so on.


I use LibreOffice, although there are still some accessibility issues here and there; Thunderbird for email, Firefox, Chrome and Brave as browsers, and vlc instead of wmp.


As for commands, you find a full list in the Help section of the NVDA menu (NVDA key + N).


I hope you enjoy your transition, and I'm sure other users will give you more detailed tips and recommendations.


Take care,

Ciao,

Ollie

Greetings folks

I’m a 20+ year user of JAWS. Not necessarily because it has been the ‘best’ but rather because it was what my employer and uni’ provided and it simply became habitual. Now I have to pay for all upgrades myself, and not really enjoying the ‘drug pusher’  like relationship JAWS has with its users, I have decided to make the slow but sure move to NVDA. I’ve heard great things about the screen reader and in fact I’ve heard in many cases I should be able to do things with NVDA that I cannot do with JAWS.

So my PC is Windows10 with MS-Office.

1Is there a document that gives NVDA equivalent keyboards commands as JAWS, ie if you did X ion JAWS then do Y in NVDA? Presumably the ‘access’ key is the zero on the num pad that JAWS uses?

2What is the best default email client and web browser to use with  NVDA? Have experience of Outlook, Outlook Express, poor experience of  Thunderbird. Have used I#e, Firefox and Chrome. No experience of Edge.

3Music player? WMP or WinAmp or something else?

4Does NVDA work with any kind of ‘Open Office’ non MS office suite?

I guess the things I use the most with my old Win7Pro machine that I’m about to stop using and move to the Win10 machine are:

-Outlook

-- IE, Firefox (or Waterfox) and Chrome.

-Word.

-Audible Manager

-Soundtaxi

-Sendspace

-Ccleaner

-Secure Notes

-Dropbox

-WMP.

Thanks all and apologies if this question has been asked and asked again, feel free to point me at web resources that will answer my questions.

Kindest

PJ

Anyone no of a good accessible client for pandora?


Re: Using tdropbox on W10?

Hi, I always make a backup of my dropbox folder, just in case.

I also didn't no about the check box in the advance part.

I found that box, but it just said checkbox, nothing about smart sync.

Evidently by felt like, you mean you believed or believe there is one called local.  But what do you want to do?  Do you want to change sync from the default?  If you aren't sure what may happen, with Drop Box not running, when you are at, not in, the Dropbox folder, copy the folder to the clipboard and paste it somewhere else as a backup.  Then experiment.  Or if you let us know exactly what you want to do, use the sync you have been using in the past or change something, you might get answers for the specific thing you want to do.

It is not clear that the Dropbox add-on would help you with this, although since
there is one, you might want to try it just in case.

I thought that most of the button accessibility problems for Dropbox were
resolved by Dropbox themselves in more recent versions, but maybe they've
introduced a new one. Hard to say, as I have not seen the situation you're
talking about.

Zahra,
That's in your own personal world. Its simply dead out of date OS.
No matter how colorful you try to picture it. its still a dead OS for
most of us.
And please stop advertising for a far gone OS, it benefit's no one.
there are a lot seeking support here.
And The way you keep repeating the same old song, XP this and XP that,
is at least distracting for some, If not annoying, and ends up with a
hijacked thread argument,
about who loves and hates some OS release .

To be honest due to skype being like it is while I will still use it if I need to, I have actually had not a lot of issue with it.

Where I must and its not often I give out my mobile number.

Otherwise its no real loss, timezones mean I have to try to juggle my hours round a bit, and in europe/us, its better to handle times during my night or in the case of the us my afternoon.

Morning timezones are well just not going to work like that.

Re: Reading column and row headers in MS Excel

Hello,

 

You have to disable them one by one.

If you’re going to re-enable them just go to the first cell of the row with the column-headers and press shift-nvda-c once. The complete row will now be treated as a column header.

 

Cheers,

I think that I have assigned column heading to more than 1 header cell.
Is there any way I can disable all column and row heading command and then re-assign fresh headers and columns.
NVDA does not read column headers if there are more than 2headers defined by mistake.
Please seek clarity if the problem is not understood.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA 2019.2 Beta 3, arrow keys do not work in Skype

under Windows 10 Ver. 1809.

Hey all. I think the subject about covers it. If I open Skype, this
is the desktop version or whatever they're calling it, under NVDA
2019.2 Beta 3, and try to arrow around, nothing happens. It works
fine under NVDA 2019.1.1.
What should happen is that it moves and reads a line, e.g. "menu
button submenu more options", "search for people groups and
messages", "use dial pad", and so on, that's arrowing down from the
top.
Tabbing between things works, but not the arrows, at least for me.
I figured I'd mention it in case anybody knows of a fix, or at
least to find out if it's a known issue, and if not, to make people
aware of it.

Re: dropbox

Vincent Le Goff <vincent.legoff.srs@...>
 

Thanks for reporting.  I was rather desperate when I found out I couldn't open my Dropbox folder that easily.  The dropbox window isn't that accessible IMO with NVDA, no matter the installed addons.


I reported the issue to Dropbox directly.  Although no answer was sent at this date (that is 10 hours later or so), I find my Dropbox opening normally this morning (though I followed your set of steps).  Again, the preference dialog isn't that accessible with NVDA, though we can manage this modification since it's in the general tab.  I reported my "partial success" to the Dropbox team, asking if possibly accessibility with NVDA and other screen readers could be more tested before features are released.  I do hope for a positive feedback.


Thanks again,


Vincent

Hi friends:  If your dropbox suddenly looks weird. Here’s how to fix it if you need to

_________________________________________________________________



Howdy All,

 

I just ran into an issue with Dropbox where it wouldn't let me acces my files.  Well, it turned out that it wanted to update and after downloading the

installer and reinstalling Dropbox navigating the folders flat out sucked, so here's how to change the necessary setting for easier navigation.

 

1. Open Dropbox from the system tray, tab to, Access and Manage your Dropbox settings button, and press enter.

 

2. Now tab to, Preferences, and press enter.

 

3. On the General tab, tab to the, Open folders in Dropbox combobox, open this combobox and choose the, Explorer, option.  With Jaws you can open this

combobox with Alt + down arrow and then up arrow to the Explorer option and press enter to close the combobox.  Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save

and close preferences.

Note:  This can act a little tricky so it might take a couple of attempts to get the Explorer settings change to stick.

If you have a shortcut key that opens Dropbox options, after you openDropbox up arrow to, Preferences, press enter and follow step 3 from above.

Take care.

Reading column and row headers in MS Excel

Mohd. Ahtesham Shaikh
 

Hi friends,
I have a file where I am not able to make NVDA read the column headers.
I think that I have assigned column heading to more than 1 header cell.
Is there any way I can disable all column and row heading command and then re-assign fresh headers and columns.
NVDA does not read column headers if there are more than 2headers defined by mistake.
Please seek clarity if the problem is not understood.

Re: Using tdropbox on W10?

Evidently by felt like, you mean you believed or believe there is one called local.  But what do you want to do?  Do you want to change sync from the default?  If you aren't sure what may happen, with Drop Box not running, when you are at, not in, the Dropbox folder, copy the folder to the clipboard and paste it somewhere else as a backup.  Then experiment.  Or if you let us know exactly what you want to do, use the sync you have been using in the past or change something, you might get answers for the specific thing you want to do.

It is not clear that the Dropbox add-on would help you with this, although since
there is one, you might want to try it just in case.

I thought that most of the button accessibility problems for Dropbox were
resolved by Dropbox themselves in more recent versions, but maybe they've
introduced a new one. Hard to say, as I have not seen the situation you're

Hello,
A quick note that if you use the advanced button, you can then check or
uncheck smart sync. It is a little interesting that that is so hidden to
begin with.
