question on html hook for screen readers

Richard Kuzma
 

Hello all,

Can anyone tell me if there is a html command or hook to determine if you are using a screen reader>?

Also, if so, is it screen reader specif as in nvda and/or jaws?

Thanks

How to read UWP WebView and TextBlock with runs in NVDA

Vytautas Leonavi?ius
 

Hi,

I am trying to improve accessibility support of an UWP app.

 

App contains WebView control  and TextBlock with Runs, both in a Scroll Viewer.  I was unable to make NVDA reading those.   Narrator reads them with no extra effort.  I think it should work, I am just not using right shortcut probably – but I could not find one to read those for me.  What am I missing?

 

Thanks!

Vytautas

The first field is station name then serial number (I usually just copy and paste) then code. Then the next screen is for your email address and the code that they emailed you.

Hello all.

I haven’t installed SPL for quite some time so I’m at a loss.

 

When entering the serial number and code in the SPL registration field, do I need to insert dashes and spaces; or are they automatically placed where they should be?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Riot IM gets an accessibility upgrade.

 

Riot IM is basically like a more feature heavy Miranda NG. I like Miranda NG better because it is very small and portable, but I wanted to share their below blog post. I am very glad to see they scrapped a few things to build with accessibility in mind.

Hi all

 

I know this has been reported before, however can somebody please clarify which versions of either NVDA, Windows, or outlook this affects?

 

The issue is that NVDA’s speech is silent when moving through the message list in a populated inbox in outlook. It only occurs on certain setups – I was hoping for a quick clarification on where this issue is present.

Re: query for a colleague

Hi
I don't think there is an equivalent of the Jaws F8 to select a table. To get feedback on cell co-ordinates, press NVDA+Ctrl+d to open the Document Formatting settings and check the appropriate box.

Is there an easy way of selecting a table on a web page? for example, like F8 in JAWS?

Is there a way to configure NVDA so that it displays the cell reference in Excel? At the moment I just see "Cell" which is not very helpful.

Re: is there app or addon for NVDA on windows 10 for previewing files

except this does not answer the original posters question. On mac os I can hit space and hear the video, skim through it, read a word document, listen to an audio file. You cannot do this in windows. I cannot hit space on a word doc or video and know, this is right or no this is not what I'm looking for.

Thanks, it is a step forward in the right direction.

 

I discovered that—taking a detour—I can obtain information about size and type of file, date of origin and date last accessed, etc., by opening toe context menu and scrolling up once to learn about specific details of a file. It is doable but does not save time.

 

Moreover, with “report tooltip” turned on, I temporarily see the information I asked about. However, it does not display long enough for me to catch the details I am looking for. Is there a setting to control it?
