As Gene suggested it may be that your Systray isn't showing all icons. Have you clicked the Notification Chevron before trying to find the NVDA icon?

Now, to the NVDA Menu. Using older versions of NVDA, I'd have this problem of not being able to access the menu with the keystroke. Even activating the icon on the systay woldn't work.
Usually, restarting NVDA a few good times would solve the problem until the next time which wouldn't take much time to come. So yeah it definitely will help to know which version of NVDA you are using right now.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and "Skip Ad" button on youtube


Hi. Not so long ago, with the previous versions, the "Skip ad" button on youtube could be read by NVDA. Now however, the newer versions of NVDA seem to read that particular button just as "Clickable". It is rather unfortunate that one has to navigate to the slider which allows us to skip a video back or forward, then arrow up to the "clickable" button immediately above the slider to activate it. The "Skip ad" button is still recognized by JFW as usual. Perhaps I am missing something? Just letting the NVDA team know. Cheers!



Working with NVDA and LastPass in Chrome Browser

Hi All,

 

How can we access the LastPass Icon with NVDA? Is there a hot key or a way to interact with lastpass?

 

Thanks so much,

Monthly Group Rules Reminder for the NVDA Group (nvda@nvda.groups.io)

nvda@nvda.groups.io Group Moderators <nvda@...>
 

This is the NVDA Group Monthly Reminder Notice, which is meant to re-emphasize the NVDA Group Rules.

The central purpose of the NVDA Group is discussing how to use NVDA, either configuring NVDA's settings or familiarizing oneself with its modes and commands.  Discussions about which programs are accessible using NVDA, NVDA add-ons, NVDA tutorials and documentation, and configuring synthesizers or Braille displays for use with NVDA are also permitted.  Like all screen readers, it is a tool for accessing something else, and really serves no other purpose.  Its function as an accessibility tool is, of course, its reason for being.

It is presumed that the majority of members will be using NVDA, and possibly other screen readers, as part of their daily routine.  This being the case, before you post a message you have to consider whether the question you are about to ask is actually about NVDA itself, or about the program you’re using it to access.  Questions of the form, How do I use . . . with NVDA?, are very seldom about NVDA, but are almost always about the program being accessed with NVDA.

The NVDA Group has a Chat Subgroup (see: https://nvda.groups.io/g/chat, Group Email Addresses section) that has as its purpose the asking of virtually any “off-topic” question about anything you can think of, including just socializing.  It should be used for exactly that purpose. The Chat Subgroup has generally had technically focused topics related to using features of the programs that one is using NVDA to access or about other programs that have proven helpful.  Only those who are already members of the NVDA Group can subscribe to the Chat Subgroup.  

Before choosing where to post, please ask yourself the question, “Is what I’m about to ask or offer directly related to controlling or using NVDA, or whether a specific program is accessible with NVDA?”  If that can be answered, “Yes,” then post to the NVDA Group, and if the answer is, “No,” then the topic belongs in the NVDA Chat Subgroup.

In order to make your experience, and those of all other members, as pleasant as they can be, please follow these practices:

1.  Use threaded or conversation view in your e-mail client program or webmail and reading through the entirety of a topic before replying.  It gets you completely up to speed and avoids a lot of repetition.  If you choose not to use threaded/conversation view, please take the time to read through all messages from the group that are in your inbox prior to adding any reply to the group.  It’s the only way you can be sure you’re up to speed on any topic when not using threaded/conversation view.

2.  Reading through all new topics before replying, as topics have a tendency to get split upon occasion and often an answer ends up being in a separate topic.

3. If you have reason to believe your question has likely been asked and answered in the past please search the Group Archive first before asking it again.  Step-by-Step instructions for searching the group archive using the Groups.io search or a web search engine of your choosing: Searching_the_NVDA_Group_Archive.docx.  Please consider using a web search first for questions that have almost certainly been asked frequently and for which myriad answers, often in the form of tutorials, already exist.

4.  Think very carefully about the title you are going to give any topic you post.  The topic is the first (and, sometimes, only) thing a member sees and that may be how they decide if they’re going to look further.   Generic titles, such as “Help Me!,” are not helpful because they give no idea about what.  Compare that to something like, “NVDA not reading Excel cell contents,” or, “NVDA setting for pronouncing numbers,” where the exact issue where help is needed is front and center.   Even something like, “Need help with the following . . .,” lets the reader know that you are going to present a list of issues.

5.  Please avoid, “What is the best . . .?,” topics, because what qualifies as “best” is entirely subjective.   Topics of this sort are also always chat topics.  If you know you have specific needs then asking, “What {insert program type here} has the following features . . .,” is much more descriptive.   If you want to know what programs people like for a specific task, asking, “What’s your favorite . . . and why?,” is far more likely to get you the details you want to have.  Notice that none of the above questions ask about whether a program is accessible with NVDA.  If you’re asking something like, “Which {insert program class here} is accessible with NVDA?,” then it’s a main group topic.

6.  Any topic that is not about using NVDA to accomplish a task, or how to control NVDA, belongs in the chat subgroup, not the main group.  All questions about how to use the specific features of a program that you’re using NVDA to access, but not about NVDA itself, belong in the chat subgroup.

 

Respectful, even if slightly heated, disagreements will occur occasionally and will be tolerated provided what is described next does not occur.  Flaming, name calling, instigating arguments for their own sake that do nothing to advance anyone’s knowledge, pointed rudeness, and similar boorish behavior will not be tolerated.  If at any point one of you happens upon a message anywhere in the NVDA Group sphere, main or chat, that fits the preceding description then please report it to the group owner either via e-mail at, nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io, or, if you read via the web interface at https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topics, then use the Report this message option that’s a part of the More button at the end of each message.  Please don’t add a protest message the topic.  If we receive a report and agree with it, the issue will be taken care of promptly.

 

If you find the amount of traffic from this Group, or any Groups.io group, overwhelming, then please download and read:

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx)

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (PDF)

Each of you has the ability to mute topics that don’t interest you, get digests instead of individual messages, or to set up topic preview for yourself via the Following Only and First Messages Also features used in conjunction with each other.  It is up to you to use those to manage your e-mail as you see fit.  It’s almost certain that there will be plenty of topics on the chat subgroup that will not be of the least interest to you as an individual. Setting up topic preview lets you pick and choose what you want to continue to see, and this function can be used on any Groups.io group.

Re: NVDA and "Skip Ad" button on youtube

Quentin Christensen
 

I just tried, and I can find the button, pretty much exactly the same ways as in Firefox.

Note that YouTube has a few different ways of showing ads.  The ones which have the "Skip ad" button, tend to be ones which play for five seconds or so first (with a count down timer where the Skip Ad button would be) before the Skip Ad button is shown.  If you are quick off the mark, and try to find the button before this point, you may not be able to.

The ads in this case are often a couple of minutes long.  YouTube sometimes shows other ads which are 30 seconds or so, and for some of these ads, it doesn't offer a facility to skip the ad, but rather shows a message saying that your video will play (or resume) after the ad.  In that case there is no Skip ad button either.

Are you sure the ads you are seeing do in fact have skip ad buttons?

I didn't try with NVDA 2019.1.1, but only NVDA 2019.2 rc1, I'm not sure if that makes a difference of the top of my head: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-2rc1-released/

I was using Chrome Version 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (64-bit) I noticed when I just checked that it decided there was an update, but I don't think this build was that old.

Regards

Quentin.

Looking at YouTube in FireFox 68.0.1 with NVDA 2019.2rc1, I can see a "Clickable skip ad" button when there is an ad showing.  You can either get to it with tab or b (or shift+tab or shift+b), or you can do an NVDA search for "skip" is usually enough to find it.

For the "clickable" part, if you don't want clickable announced, you can turn that off in NVDA's document settings (NVDA+control+d)

I must admit, I have a YouTube subscription so I haven't seen ads in awhile to know if that behaviour has changed lately.

Re: Setting global speech rate across various profiles

Quentin Christensen
 

You're welcome Marcio, glad I got there in the end with my explanation!

Re the User Guide, in the section on Configuration Profiles: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#ConfigurationProfiles

It does say: "A configuration profile contains only those settings which are changed while the profile is being edited. "

But I appreciate that sentence is more obvious and makes more sense once you already know what it means and is easy to skip over initially (especially as only a couple of lines into that section.

Re: Setting global speech rate across various profiles

 

Quentin,
If I am in Word (and don't have a profile for Word), and change the speech rate, that change will be reflected in Firefox (albeit using eSpeak NG in Firefox) because I hadn't set a speech rate in my Firefox profile.
Ah now it makes sense!
So basically, a profile will just assume what it knows about your settings for that program. So if, for example, you have a profile for Firefox but you haven't set a certain speed for the synthesizer, it will assume that you want to use the one from the General profile.

Again, just me being slow! LOL
Thanks fo r always making me understanding things!

Re: Is there a way to set NVDA 2019.2-RC1 to exit focus mode in Skype?

Luke Davis
 

Have you tried setting up a config profile, triggered by Skype, that does one of the following:

* Is saved with browse mode off, so when it triggers browse mode will alrady be off; or
* Has the "Enable browse mode on page load" option disabled?

If a configuration profile will hold either the browse mode state, or that option, that should be a good solution for you.

Luke

On Wed, 31 Jul 2019, John Isige wrote:

So I asked about this Skype issue and Joseph was right. If you hit NVDA-space, it takes NVDA out of focus mode and you can arrow through Skype controls as usual. What's interesting is that it seems to be preserved until restart. That is, when I first get into Skype I have to hit NVDA-space, but once I've done that, it's set until I restart NVDA, even if I close Skype and re-open it again, well, make it minimize to the system tray or whatever it does.


So is there a way to set NVDA to not be in focus mode when I open Skype? I don't know what changed between 2019.1 and 2019.2 so I don't know what setting change(s) to make, or if it's even possible.




Re: Setting global speech rate across various profiles

Quentin Christensen
 

If you have a profile for a particular program, only settings you change while in that program are saved to the profile.  So if I have a profile for Firefox and while in Firefox change from my default synthesizer of OneCore voices to eSpeak NG, anytime Firefox has focus, eSpeak NG will be used.  If I am in Word (and don't have a profile for Word), and change the speech rate, that change will be reflected in Firefox (albeit using eSpeak NG in Firefox) because I hadn't set a speech rate in my Firefox profile.

So a profile for a program will use the default general profile, but then change any settings you have changed whilst in that program.  That, in general, allows the situation the original poster wanted - to be able to NOT set the speech rate in one program but use the general profile's speech rate - the only restriction is if you change the speech rate while in a program with its own profile, the change will be made to THAT program's profile, not the general profile.

It's a bit tricky to explain, but I hope it makes sense!

Re: trouble with NVDA Menu and content being correctly formatted on web pages

 

Scott,
When doing a Windows B I was unable to find the NVDA icon at all. This might be another symptom of the problem.
As Gene suggested it may be that your Systray isn't showing all icons. Have you clicked the Notification Chevron before trying to find the NVDA icon?

Now, to the NVDA Menu. Using older versions of NVDA, I'd have this problem of not being able to access the menu with the keystroke. Even activating the icon on the systay woldn't work.
Usually, restarting NVDA a few good times would solve the problem until the next time which wouldn't take much time to come. So yeah it definitely will help to know which version of NVDA you are using right now.

Re: Setting global speech rate across various profiles

 

Mobeen,
if I go to firefox which is using the normal profile and change the rate, my speech rate changes no longer apply to excel. I have to adjust the rate when I go back in to excel and this would also apply to other custom settings.
So are you saying that, having a profile for Excel, if you change something outside this profile, the change will be valid for the General profile as well?
If so, what a weird situation! I have profiles for Firefox and Thunderbird (Screen Curtain reasons), and my Desktop obviously doesn't have a profile.
I've changed a few settings in both profiles and results are the same. I change my Firefox profile, when I go back to Thunderbird, its profile is triggered. If I go to the Desktop the General profile is activated.
If I make changes to the General profiles they will be carried to the other programs if they don't have their own profiles.
With that being said I'm not sure of what's going on your end, even having reading the entire thread so far.

Cheers,
Marcio AKA Starboy
