When I'm reading a Kindle book. I exit NVDA, and let the Kindle do the reading. Sometimes I start narrator, but it's really unnecessary.

Hi

Once you have set a location, the most frequently used commands are

NVDA+w to read todays forecast

NVDA+Shift+w to read forecast for up to the next 9 days



If you try pressing NVDA+w and you get an error saying the WOE Id is
missing, you need to set a location, as follows:



1. Open the NVDA menu using NVDA+n

2. Press the letter p to open the preferences sub-menu

3. Press the letter s until you find “Weather Plus Settings sub-menu s”, and
press enter

4. Press the letter m to open the “Set and manage your cities” dialog box.

5. in the edit box, type in your location and postcode in the form CityName,
PostCode

6. Tab to and press "test" button.

7 if the location is valid you can hear a beep , tab to the details button
and press it to read the location details.

8. you can set the location as the Preset default or simply add to your
list using the appropriate buttons

9. Tab through the other controls, checking options you want to include in
the forecast for your location.

10. When done, tab to OK and press enter



If you want to learn more about the other features of Weather_Plus you must

So, does anybody know of an accessible way to both remove segments

The other thing to note is that column headers are only announced as you move left or right (between columns), and row headers are only announced as you change rows.  If you have column headers set and press the down arrow - the column hasn't changed so the header isn't read again.

Subject: [nvda] excel and headers not working as intended

Hello all,

I don't see anything describing my situation in recent conversations so
am starting a new thread.

I'm going through the NVDA excel training and have found that when
following the precise directions in the training, headers are not
reading as it says they should.

I have a set of cells with data. I go to the start of the row that I
want to use as column headers and press NVDA+shift+c.

NVDA announces A2 set as start of column headers. This is correct.

However that header is not read when I navigate through the table.

If I repeat the set column header hotkey, it says that the cell is
already set as the column header. If I press it twice rapidly it says
that the column header is removed.

Everything works as it should right up until I actually start navigating
the table data and do not hear headers spoken.

I am using NVDA 19.2, MS excel 1908 most recent build.

Has anyone else seen this problem? Am I missing something in settings? I
do have the table information checkbox for headers selected in the
document settings of NVDA.

If the instructions in the excel tutorial are missing a step it would be
good to correct that as well.

Thank you in advance for help troubleshooting this.

Warmly,
Sally

Sorry about that, I just realised that I hadn't emailed you the link I promised from Ebay!

Anyhow, this guy sells both the female cable and the male cable. On the back of my braille note it is a male connection, so I bought the female RS-232 to USB 2.0 cable to go on there.

It also came with a driver mini CD which works on my Windows 10 operating system.

I just use it as a braille display, rather than a note taker.

Here is the link https://www.ebay.com/itm/RS-232-Serial-to-USB-2-0-PL2303-Cable-Adapter-Converter-For-Win-7-8-MAC-OS-AU/143028406760?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


I know that when I enquired here at PBTech (in New Zealand) they only had a male RS-232 to USB cable, but apparently I could have bought an adapter for $10 to change it to female.


I have just had another quick look on Ebay for you. It seems that they also sell the RS-232 gender changers if you wanted to adapt the cable you already have. Sometimes though it is just as easy to get the proper cable already done. I have been happy with the ones that I purchased. They are also nice and long.

Gene

Hi

Once you have set a location, the most frequently used commands are

NVDA+w to read todays forecast

NVDA+Shift+w to read forecast for up to the next 9 days

 

If you try pressing NVDA+w and you get an error saying the WOE Id is missing, you need to set a location, as follows:

 

1. Open the NVDA menu using NVDA+n

2. Press the letter p to open the preferences sub-menu

3. Press the letter s until you find “Weather Plus Settings sub-menu s”, and press enter

4. Press the letter m to open the “Set and manage your cities” dialog box.

5. in the edit box, type in your location and postcode in the form CityName, PostCode

6. Tab to and press "test" button.

7 if the location is valid you can hear a beep , tab to the details button and press it to read the location details.

8. you can set the location as  the Preset default or simply add to your list using the appropriate buttons

9. Tab through the other controls, checking options you want to include in the forecast for your location.

10. When done, tab to OK and press enter

 

If you want to learn more about the other features of Weather_Plus you must read the readme.html file you find on the

nvda menu, preferences submenu, weather plus settings, documentation.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi, when I arrived home late last night, Saturday, I switched on my pc which uses Windows 10 64 bit and the latest version of NVDA and it asked me if I wanted to upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1. I have now the latest version on my pc, but how do I use this addon, ie what keys do I press to get results please?

 

Thanks for any help, Steve Thacker from the UK.

Hello!

What was the extension?

The extra is only to the Brother utilities application, a kind of launcher to other Brother apps...

Any dificultie on those other apps, like in Brother control center?

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.

Re: Weather_Plus7.1 update available

Adriano Barbieri
 

Hi Chris,


No, it overwrites it.
The error in Betsy's log indicated lines not consistent with the reported error, which I remember already having solved some time ago in some previous version.
I don't know how it is possible, but surely, without knowing it, it is using an old version even if it says to read that it is 7.1.
This is why I advised you to uninstall it and clean% temp from every old add-on file.

Regards
Adriano

Hi Adriano

Could the problem be anything to do with the weather.ini or weather.zipcodes because I note these files are in the Appdata\Roaming\NVDA folder, so are used by all versions?  If weather.ini from an old version did not get removed, would the creation of weather.ini from a new install create weather(1).ini?

Re: NVDA and accessible kindle book

Bianka Brankovic
 

Hello Mary,

I cannot reproduce the behavior with one of my Kindle books on pc. However, I know that the accessibility features can behave differently whether you are accessing a Kindle book with an Iphone or a pc.

Have you tried switching off the TTS with Ctrl-t? Does this have an affect on NVDA?

Also, I have read somewhere that Kindle for pc needs enhanced type setting enabled in order for the accessibility features to work.

Just my two cents.

Kind regards,

Bianka

Hi

I currently studying this book: https://greenteapress.com/wp/think-python-2e/

This is not the book written for blind user, but I think it is understanndable. Google search for pythonvis a mailing list for blind people who want to learn programming with Python.
