Re: Sample of link in email that will not work properly

 

What I find works well if Enter doesn’t work is to tab to the link and use the apps key or shift f10 then you can either arrow left/right to open the link or even copy the link to the clipboard.

Dear NVDA folks,

 

Sometimes I get a link in email that does not work properly. If in browse mode, I press enter on the link and nothing happens. I go into focus mode and the same. To get the link to work, I need to copy and paste to the clipboard, open the browser and enter the contents of the clipboard.

 

Other times, the link works by pressing enter.

 

The link below about bugs in iOS 13 demonstrates this behavior. Any thoughts? Do I have something wrong with my settings?

Hello from the Team at AppleVis.

We wanted to let you know that our post detailing the VoiceOver, braille, and low vision bugs which we believe to be introduced and resolved in iOS 13 is now available at https://www.applevis.com/blog/accessibility-bugs-introduced-and-resolved-ios–13-blind-and-low-vision-users

Regrettably, there are a significant number of new bugs in iOS 13; including an extremely serious issue for low vision users who rely on a light on dark display. Consequently, we strongly recommend that you read through this post and any comments before updating—as this will allow you to make an informed decision on whether to install iOS 13 when it becomes available on 19 September; or whether to wait for the release of iOS 13.1 on 30 September, which we believe should resolve many of these issues.

So what will happen to my favorite add-ons in the future: September 2019 update

 

Hi NVDA users,

 

At least I’m back in action (slightly reduced workload, but working on NVDA coding here and there) and some news to share with you regarding what will happen to your favorite add-ons in the future.

 

First, a bit of a background for people who don’t know what I’m talking about:

 

This past summer (winter for some), I and other NVDA developers worked on preparing NVDA for the future. Specifically, with the impending end of life of Python 2 (the original language NVDA is coded in), the developers felt it is time to shift gears and move onto a more modern way of providing equal access to technology: Python 3. In addition to some exciting enhancements, it brought many changes under the hood that will make NVDA a viable option for all of you in the long term, including some performance enhancements, smooth internationalization, and much more.

 

One of the questions we received in recent weeks has been about your favorite add-ons and the upcoming NVDA 2019.3, the first version to be powered by Python 3. Although there were initial bumps, I’m delighted to announce that majority of add-ons that you know and love will work with NVDA 2019.3. Take a look at the following items:

 

  • 63 percent of add-ons hosted on community add-ons website (addons.nvda-project.org) are compatible with NVDA 2019.3.
  • Several authors have indicated plans to introduce Python 3 support to their add-ons soon, and others are working hard on porting their add-ons to make them future-proof.
  • Notable add-on developers, including makers of Vocalizer series and DictationBridge, have committed to releasing Python 3 compatible versions of their add-ons in the future. In case of Vocalizer series, an alpha version of old Vocalizer Direct (2.x) is being tested, and a public beta of Python 3 compatible DictationBridge is scheduled to be released shortly after NVDA 2019.3 beta 1 is released.

 

The add-ons community expects more add-ons to join the ranks of future-proof add-ons as NVDA 2019.3 release approaches. Until then…

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: odd beeping progress

Hi


I wonder if also under the object presentation menu  settings in nvda if they have the check box after it also checked called Report background progress bars. This setting is just after the one that says progress bar out put which can be set to beep, speak etc. Uncheck the one after it and see if it goes away.

I never really tried to find a solution to it.

The other problem it could have been, is your power management aggressively muting audio, and it not coming back up fast enough. If you know audio engineering, this is a case of over-gating, or using a gate with a too high threshold.

Quite unexpectedly, the bluetooth audio add-on solved a problem for me in this area, where my system would start deciding that NVDA wasn't talking, and would start turning down the sound to zero. Even now, if I disable the add-on, my audio is clearly gated--sounds like an inverted ducker, where each time NVDA speaks, it does a rapid volume increase from low to normal.

I don't think I ever tried NVDA on Win98 or95 or 3.1.  But I have a Win98 machine I may have to press into service.  If NVDA won't do it, maybe I'll jhust have to crack JAWS.

Re: ALVA 544 Satellite Traveller braille display with NVDA

Oriana
 

Forgive me for rambling, but I'm a bit frustrated. I bought a male cable that came with a driver, and a female cable to fit in the unit, but nothing is working. First of all, i cannot find a female rs232-usb cable with a driver at all. Second, apparently the cables cannot be exchanged male for female because there are chipsets that require unique drivers. Third, BRLTTY is doing things that weren't in the documentation and the command line doesn't seem to work because the path wasn't set? Anyway if i could at least get the link to the product that you actually got working that would be great.

Re: New add-on for Brother Utilities app

Robert Logue
 

Thanks Shaun. I downloaded the add on. I just don't know how to install it.  Doesn't seem to have the file extensions that NVDA uses. I used the instructions for installing add-ons in NVDA.



I haven't had the mental energy to tackle the WiFi setup.  I almost think it would be worth the installation fee if I get the tech to describe all the buttons.


Works fine as a printer using standard Windows print commands.


I like that this printer has dedicated buttons.

However I wouldn't bother.

The combo boxes are still as inaccessible as ever.

The documentation doesn't have a command list, it will run as far back is 17.03 and as current is last nvda.

The documentation seems to just be the really basic readme pulled from github.

Now this is from a user looking at this briefly.

The addon works.

But it may as well be a pile of crap for all it does to me.

I don't know how to work it, there is basically no documentation except for a small description about what it does.

There isn't even a keyboard shortcut list.

If at all possible, I would like to see more than a learn more button labeled on the brother utilities and the iprint software.

There is a combobox on brother utilities but that and iprint are pritty much no gos as far as it matters.

Luckily unless you need to reinstall the driver you never have to bother with this really.

In fact depending on what you are doing, you may never need to bother about any of the brother software for basic tasks, both printing and scanning.

If your router or something changes you can edit the printer address as long as you have set that up yourself and configure it from windows and the web interfaces.

Hopefully you won't need to do that that often.

The software is a bit hit and miss, but then its not a problem because you don't need to use that software for scanning and printing which is about all we will ever need it for.

Anything else and well who knows.

The software for most brother things are just front ends for standard dumb users that want to use it.

The web interface is accessible enough for most users.

If you know how to configure a router then you will know how to use the web interface of any device like this.

The brother printer is like that.

The problem is I have no way of knowing when I am actually in the field I tab until it stops but this doesn’t guarantee that I am in the correct place. If I press NVDA+tab it just announces picture which is the last thing the screen reader can read.

What do you mean about if it was completely clear before you paste?  If you write it in Notepad, why can't you check it before pasting it to the clipboard?  If you find that doing that, then pasting doesn't necessarily present desired results, you could send a message to yourself with the new signature.

Thanks, this is the hit and miss part of adding signatures using the native mail app for Win10. The sad thing is that they know about the problem. The place where you need to place the signature is a graphical field and of course screen readers are clueless about that area. So you may be able to paste but you cannot check to see how correct it is or if it was completely clear before you even paste.

Re: Reading characters phonetically?

Robert Doc Wright godfearer
 

The problem is I have no way of knowing when I am actually in the field I tab until it stops but this doesn’t guarantee that I am in the correct place. If I press NVDA+tab it just announces picture which is the last thing the screen reader can read.

If you are in the field, control a, then delete doesn't work and control home shift end delete doesn't work either?

No, you misunderstood. The field you are suppose to paste into because of it being graphical if there was already a signature there it is hard to know it you deleted it because there is no way to check accept with sighted help.

What do you mean about if it was completely clear before you paste?  If you write it in Notepad, why can't you check it before pasting it to the clipboard?  If you find that doing that, then pasting doesn't necessarily present desired results, you could send a message to yourself with the new signature.

Thanks, this is the hit and miss part of adding signatures using the native mail app for Win10. The sad thing is that they know about the problem. The place where you need to place the signature is a graphical field and of course screen readers are clueless about that area. So you may be able to paste but you cannot check to see how correct it is or if it was completely clear before you even paste.

Hi Robert

 

I sent you a message yesterday, but didn't get an answer. This is the last one

I'll send privately, but your signature seems to be damaged or maybe some cut

and paste errors.

Weather_Plus7.0 little addition

Adriano Barbieri
 

Hi to every one,


***little patch for Weather_Plus7.0***

• Added to the search field the automatic composition of the keys entered by typing the first character followed by the vertical arrows in the search window.
The search window now it's more efficient.

Note: This update will not be reported by the addon and the last link has not changed.
Those who want to update can do it only manually from:

http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus7.0.nvda-addon
or:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/Weather_Plus.en.html


Thanks
Adriano
