Golden Cursor (or any Alternatives) Question

 

This topic just appeared on the JAWS group:  https://jfw.groups.io/g/main/message/71568

Since the poster describes the situation exactly, and gives the steps to get where the problem occurs, I won't repeat those here.

I have responded there that when I'm using NVDA if I'm mousing around the screen "the usual way" all of the options are actually read to me as the mouse is over them, but if I tab through them they are not.  What's even weirder is if I fire up the elements list the number of links shown does not correspond to what's on the page.  Very peculiar.

But, I thought, what about using Golden Cursor to mouse around the page, so I did.   My problem is that as I glide down the page vertically and move off of the bottom of one "button" [they're not really, but that's what they look like, and they're supposed to all be links, but not all are in the elements list] to the very top of the next I do get the full announcement of what needs to be heard that's on that "button" option.  However, if you can't see that bottom of one, top of another coming, the announcement of the pixel coordinate as you move makes it very hard indeed to know that you've hit a transition.

Is there a way to intentionally silence the coordinate reading aspect of Golden Cursor when using it as a keyboard substitute for "mousing around" on the screen to hear what's under the mouse rather than caring in particular exactly where the mouse is at the moment?   These "buttons" literally span the breadth of the screen, so once the mouse is focused on any one of them via up/down movement it can be activated, which is the ultimate goal, but I don't care where it is, I just want to hear what's beneath the mouse like I do if I'm moving the mouse itself without Golden Cursor involved.

Re: setting Firefox as default browser using NVDA

Brian,


I have tried that several times now and have even rebooted my system between tries and it still  doesn't stick.  I really do not understand what is happening here.


When I just tried it again when I click on the browser button it showed Firefox as being the default browser.  I clicked on it and then clicked on Firefox to make sure it was set and still it doesn't stick.


Maybe there is something wrong with Win 10 on my system and it isn't saving the settings in the place that Firefox is expecting it.  Not sure what is going on. 


Thanks for the suggestion though.

it sounds like a registry problem.  I don't know if anyone will be able to tell you how you ight solve it. 
 
All that default browser means is that something will open in Firefox if you press enter on it, such as if you press enter on a link in an e-mail.  But there are other easy ways to open something in the browser you wish.  They require a little more work, but since you evidently can't set the default browser to Firefox, an example is that, when you are on a link in an e-mail, open the context menu.  You will probably find something like copy link or something similar.  Pressing enter will copy the address to the clipboard.  Then paste it into the browser's address bar, press enter, and the page will open.  I regularly use that method.  I havbe one browser as my default because I want certain very specific things to open most easily.  But in general, I want to use another browser.

Ok, now this is just crazy.


I decided to try setting the browser to Brave which I have been using for a while and see if that would stick.  It did.  I next went into settings and set the browser back to Firefox and now it is sticking and working as it should.  this is just nuts.


Thanks for all the suggestions.

Re: setting Firefox as default browser using NVDA

But this may be nothing but one isolated incident, perhaps caused by a problem when you have one browser set as default and try to switch directly to another specific browser.  If no other problems exist, or they are so minor that they don't matter, there is no reason to do anything.
 
I suspect this is such a problem and I believe I recall cases from many years ago, where you couldn't switch default browsers directly from one to another if you were running one specific browser and tried to switch to another specific browser.

Not that I doubt this, and it prompted me to test under Windows 10, Version 1903, Build 18362.295, and it does not occur.

I've switched the default browser app while all of the browsers are open and browsing, and when I activate a link in a standalone e-mail client, Thunderbird in this case, whatever I last set comes up.

This is not meant to start an argument, but probably will:  There are lots of behaviors that I am so familiar with "normal" that "atypical" just screams out at me.  The behavior described is highly atypical under Windows 10, and I prefer to take steps that address likely underlying corruption quickly.  Particularly when there's not a downside (or a significant chance of one) in doing so.

Yes, you could.  You could also activate the browse button and navigate to a chosen folder.

But it's blank by default, and a great many people browse to the drive they want to use, and that's it.   There are lots of "browse" options in cases like this that would automatically post-pend the NVDA part, which a user would need to remove if they didn't want that folder.

People (and I include myself) are lazy and will most often take what the software does after a minimum of picking.   There are other factors involved, too.   Were the NVDA "create portable" always to create a dedicated NVDA folder on the destination device (even if that device were an existing folder) this would be a moot point.

I know what I observe happening "in the wild" and I know it won't likely change.   In this case a simple programming change could alleviate the issue.  It's all a matter of what one wants, and at least mentioning it.

Re: setting Firefox as default browser using NVDA

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Brian,

 

I was intrigued by your recent discussion and so I had a go at changing my default browser from Chrome to Firefox. At first, it did not hold. But after two more attempts it did take.

 

I used Restart as the shutdown procedure. Should I have used shutdown instead? I have a feeling that I read something about the Shutdown procedure closing all windows routines but the Restart does not do so. I would be glad if you could clarify this for me.

 

After the second attempt, Firefox is now my default browser. My HTML files open in Firefox, as you would expect.

 

When I type a web address into the windows search box, the web page always comes up in EDGE! How can I change that default behaviour to Firefox? Edge is listed in the potential default apps but is not checked as the default, Firefox is.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

I am not Brian, but I can clarify that for you. It is, in fact, the exact opposite of what you thought. A restart brings Windows down, then restarts it from the ground up. These days, shutdown actually just puts your system into a hibernation mode (a more inactive form of sleep mode), and never really shuts it down. Therefore, restart is the more effective way to be sure Windows actually shuts down and comes back up.

If fast boot is disabled, shutdown will completely shut down the computer.  If I had Windows 10 and had fast boot on, I would still do a restart from time to time to avoid instability caused by Windows not fully ever shutting down.  How often you would do this, you can experiment to find out.  But if you don't want to experiment, I would think four or five day intervals would be good.  But you may have stability and performance problems sooner or later so you may want to experiment.

Yep.   The most inane and counterintuitive change Microsoft introduced.   I have nothing against the Fast Startup, per se, but I do have a huge problem with how people can and do believe that doing a shutdown does exactly what it says.   If they wanted a separate form of Hibernation, which is what Fast Startup does (it only saves the OS system state out to disk, full hibernation does that along with the user state(s) for all user(s) active at the time), they should have called it something like Slumber.

The first thing I do when configuring a new Windows 10 system is to turn Fast Startup off.  When, not if, but when a corruption in the hiberfile occurs your system can have some of the most bizarre behaviors that make absolutely no sense.  And the multi-hour tail chasing I did once to determine this when working with one of my clients in a community college setting, trying to figure out why his keyboard would not work right (and, thus, neither did JAWS) I never wanted to do it again.

On systems with SSDs the decrease in boot times when it's off are imperceptible.  On regular HDD it's not that much longer to boot from scratch, and well worth it in my opinion.

Re: NVDA pronouncing cups as Cuban Pesos

I just tried on that recipe, and reading the ingredients, with Microsoft Zira, 1/2 cup white wine is read as "cuban pesos".  If I change to Microsoft George or Catherine or several others, it reads the amount of wine correctly.  I know the different OneCore voices are installed with different language packs in Windows - because they're just names, I can never remember which comes with which.  I know Catherine is the Australian voice, so maybe they assumed not many Australian's would be dealing in Cuban Pesos, compared to folk in the US?

Repeating Alt Text of the current object

Gabbert, Darren
 

When I’m in Microsoft Word and in browse mode I can press g or Shift g to move from image to image. Is there a way to repeat the alt text of to image with focus? I don’t want to shift g and g, because I’m building a tutorial and don’t want the confusion.

Thanks!

Darren
