I discovered that Narrator was using the BRLTTY driver.

I changed to USB input device and now the Orbit Reader 20 is working fine with NVDA.

I installed the braille extender.

I have NVDA set to automatic for braille display since Orbit isn’t in the list.

Any hints on how to get it to recognize the Orbit Reader 20?

 

Thanks,

Add-on Updater 19.08.2 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Add-on Updater 19.08.2 is now available. This version resolves key error seen when trying to look for updates for certain add-ons, along with fixing localizations for Arabic and Ukrainian.

 

Note: Add-on Updater 19.09 is coming soon, and that version will require NVDA 2019.2 or later.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Jarek,


What is the problem exactly?
The commands nvda + w, nvda + shift + w Don't work, or haven't you read the documentation?

Hi,

Latest Firefox stable, NVDA 19.1.1

 

When I am editing google doc, NVDA have some problems.

 For example, the doc contain the following

"Heading1

This is the text."

 

If I press home, NVDA speak heading1

if i press right arrow, nvda speak h (where if it is in word, NVDA

should speak e)

if i press right arrow, NVDA speak e, press left arrow, NVDA speak e again.

NVDA always speaking things repeatedly, making editing and deleting word

very complicated.

NVDA and google doc

Mr. Wong Chi Wai, William <cwwong.pro@...>
 

Hi,
Using Win 7 latest Firefox, NVDA 19.1.1

If I am editing a file on the google doc,
NVDA always speak repeatedly.

If the doc contain the following paragraph:

'Heading1


This is a testing paragraph.'

Press Home, NVDA speak Heading1

press right arrow NVDA speak H(whereas if it is in word, NVDA should speak e)

press right arrow again, NVDA speak e, where if press left arrow, NVDA speak e again.

I always mistakenly deleted the wrong word or just inserted the wrong word at the wrong position.

Isn't it a correct behavior for NVDA on Google doc?

Thanks,

William

Re: WP Gutenberg needs testers.

 

Well with the accessability tests I did with wpaccess team, gutenberg was all sorts of unfinnished that well.

Its supposed to be better, and those that got it wrong were told off, however, there is a classical editor plugin for wordpress about which I use.

As long as it is maintained I will not be well using that.

To be honest, as long as I can use wordpressmobile and don't have to rely on the weird wordpress site thats fine.

If it doesn't, at least for my blog, I will probably switch to blogger which is google  or go back to livejournal but with all the issues with hacks, and adds I wander if I should try to get a wordpress client to write my posts in though I have no idea what is accessible.

Anyway, they need testers. No, this is not paid. The below post explains what needs to be done to get this new editor. it is not available to anybody using wordpress.com yet, just self-hosted sites on .org. I've included the Github page below as well.

The relevant issue on GitHub. I'd suggest leaving your comments there so it can be tracked easier.

It is good idea, because I have tested It in Wordpress.com and It is not very accessible.

Hi all.

Was searching through the net for something and found this massive database.

https://github.com/Awesome-Windows/Awesome

Now its a list of a lot of stuff, not sure about the accessability of all of the stuff but everything is described, it could be a good list to draw from for things.

Hi,

Version 19.09 isn’t out yet – won’t be available until late August at the earliest so folks can at least give NVDA 2019.2 a test drive. However, 19.08.1 can be downloaded from:

https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/addonUpdater.en.html

From there, select stable version, and Add-on Updater will be ready for download.

Hi all,

 

Add-on Updater 19.08.1 is now available. This version registers Control Usage Assistant for update checks and resolves an issue where you could not check for updates for certain add-ons with unexpected update channels set (NVDA would do nothing or play error tones).

 

Note: this update will install on NVDA 2019.1, but I recommend using this add-on with 2019.2. Add-on Updater 19.09 will require NVDA 2019.2.

 

Cheers,

Joseph
