Accessible music notation software compatible with NVDA

Morne van der Merwe
 

Hello list

 

I’m planning to complete my music studies and one of the modules is called Music Technology.  I must also be able to compose.  Is there anybody on the list who use a music notation software like Sibelius or Cakewalk Pro with NVDA?  And if so, how accessible is it?  And if not, are there other recommendations available on the market?

 

Kind regards

 

Morné

By chance has any one figured out what to do about the windows 10 mail app where adding signatures are concerned? Microsoft disability support says that the field we need to enter text into is appearing as a graphic. It comes after the option to add a picture.

Good morning everyone,

 

NV Access is pleased to announce the release of NVDA 2019.2.  Highlights of this release include auto detection of Freedom Scientific braille displays, an experimental setting in the Advanced panel to stop browse mode from automatically moving focus (which may provide performance improvements), a rate boost option for the Windows OneCore synthesizer to achieve very fast rates, and many other bug fixes.

 

Please see the full release announcement, what's new, and download links at https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-2-now-available/ 

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: Filtering a YouTube results page

John Isige
 

Search for something. When you do, once the page with results loads and you come out of focus mode, there should be a button that says "toggle button not pressed search filters". Pressing that gives you options, e.g. downloads in the last day, month, year, and so on. For example, if I search for Seagull merlin, wait until the page loads, and then exit focus mode, I get the search filters button right below the sub menu about account profiles, and just above the first result, oh I should add I'm not using screen layout for web pages but the other option.

Thanks for any info,

Re: Filtering a YouTube results page

Clarissa Mitchell
 

I have done this before. First, type the search terms as normal. Then,
on the results page, there should be a button for filters. Press the b
key until you get to this. NVDA should say something like, "clickable
search filters toggle button not pressed." Press the space bar on that
to open the filters. Then, you can navigate by heading with the h key.
You should get upload date, type, duration, etc. What I like to do is
choose video under type, then sort by: upload date. Then I get the
most recent videos for my search term. Hope this helps.

Re: Why does NVDA not find photos on this website?

Giles Turnbull
 

That is interesting, thanks Quentin. SO if an ALT tag was empty NVDA wouldn't just speak it, it would not even appear as a graphical object?

You are correct, the site does need you to log in. I've been talking to the IT team behind the website and I'm happy to say they are currently doing a re-design to improve accessibility for screen readers.

The senior designer tells me the images do use the IMG tag but she also tells me it is a slideshow, so I'm just asking her how that might be being done. NVDA is not finding any graphics (except the main website logo) and there are no embedded objects such as YouTube videos.

I'm really happy to see a website taking screen reader accessibility seriously :)

Quentin,
Sure.
The addon is HKBU-2019.1 雙語音虛擬合成器
They are working on a fix for it.
At this moment, user who use this addon are strongly advised not to upgrade to 2019.2 till further notice.

Hi


Do the following to get there quickly.

Press the ctrl key +nvda key + the letter D this will bring up documentation formatting menu then tab down to Line indentation reporting: Off then turn it off it is a combo box and you might have it set to sounds or voice.


Then apply settings if you are happy.

I wonder if I have the same windows update?  I got one update this morning. NVDA came on saying your computer is updating do not turn off your computer.  I have Nairator say the same thing should NVDA not come on while your windows is updating.

Hi all,

I installed the update to NVDA 2019.2 this afternoon and have just installed an update to Win10 (Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.950)

I used the Install Update and Re-start option. As Win10 re-started I heard "windows is configuring your updates. Do not turn off your computer" and then I heard nothing more. I pressed the power button to reboot and the drives gave a slight whirr and then nothing more. I wondered if NVDA had failed to start so used a shortcut I have on my desktop to re-launch NVDA ... and NVDA duly re-started.

I looked in the NVDA preferences and somehow the option to start NVDA after Windows logon had got unchecked. I always have that checked so is that something that has somehow become unchecked iin instaling the update?

Just thought it might be worth mentioning :)

‘s happened to me when I got this new computer.  I forgot to check the box where you have NVDA start when windows does.  Another time I forgot to create a hot key for it. I thought something was broken. Before I wrote the list making a fool out of myself I checked to see if I had a hot key set for NVDA. Turned out I did not have one created.

Were you using a RC release before the new version.

I am wondering if the box became unchecked and then it may just be a matter of starting nvda with the alt + ctrl + letter N key. Then go back and check the box so it starts automatically again when Windows does.

 

it caught me again this morning.

 

Or does it just not start at all? Do you hear other sounds from windows like the boot up screen?

Since no-one has pointed it out, you may be helpped in debugging by using Narrator. To start it, press control+windows+enter. At least, that is the shortcut on US-English keyboards.

That may at least get you some speech so you can try things.
