How to reach cookie warning banners in Windows 10

Brian Crabtree <pandbcrabtree@...>
 

Excuse me for posting this question again. Perhaps because of heavy focus on other topics, it got no replies the first time, but there must be folks out there who can supply answers.

Please could someone suggest how to reach and dismiss the banner that comes up on websites, advising me that the site uses cookies.

There is an x at the end of the banner, but I have tried everything I know, firstly to navigate to the banner and then to reach the x to dismiss it with NVDA and cannot get anywhere near it. I am on Windows 10 and the latest official release of NVDA.

Is there perhaps a Windows command which helps? Brian Crabtree


Is anyone using Thunderbird with Braille?

John J. Boyer
 

It seems that NNVDA is showing exrtaneous information at the beginning
of lines. That is very confusing. For example, it will display Inbox
(58) as I arrow from one folder to another, then the name of the folder.
As noted previously, i can't find the tree view with the accounts.

Re: How do you read ALT in a table?

Quentin Christensen
 

Excellent.  I seem to have had in mind that the table alt text was a new thing.  If you've got it in Office 2010 it must just be that I hadn't noticed it earlier.

Quentin.

Hi Quentin.


Thanks for that.I was guessing that the long description shortcut may be used, but not with the current version of NVDA.

I do have a master copy here from saturday i will give it a whirl with that, then put in the shortcut for it into the tutorial.
I just tryed it and when I now come across the table it will speak the table name for example school time table and when I do the long description with NVDA key + D it will speak out what I had put in there as in the description.

I usually look up to see what has been done in the master snapshot and have a bit of a play to see what to do, then write on how to use certain parts of it that may get used.

The stuff I am writing up is more the basic of using power point, excel and word with the copy of office I am using.
It should work on other versions if supported.

Hi Gene,

I came across this recently as I am nearly finished writing the "Microsoft Word with NVDA" course myself.

What we've done is read the alt "title" as you move onto the table, and the description is used as Long description (press NVDA+D in browse mode).

This is in the latest master build at least.  Issue is #5943 (closed): https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5943

Battle With Win10

David Russell
 

Hello group,
Late this afternoon I began having troubles in earnest with windows 10
forcing an install. NVDA did not read this was occurring, it was all
behind the scenes according to my wife who is sighted.

I did go to control panel, windows update, change settings and chose
the install automatic updates. This was suggested by an article at
make use of .com. It did not work.

My wife was able to again stop the install, but the problem is likely
to occur when my computer goes into low power mode, after not being
used for a few minutes.

This is quite disconcerting and evidently a widespread problem, not
just mine or a few others. Any thoughts?

Re: reading objects in Microsoft Word

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Kevin,

Text boxes are problematic and really the best solution is to convince people to just stop using them.  Failing that, this question actually came up last week, so I'll share what I wrote in answer to that here:

NVDA doesn't currently have a direct keystroke, it's something we could look into.  For now, though, there are still a couple of ways of reading text boxes currently:

If the text boxes are positioned "in line with text", they can be found within the text of the document.  Currently they are identified as "slash" though that's something we're working on.  Most text boxes are not in line with text (as floating is the default and having them in line with text makes them harder to drag around and position with the mouse - which is really the point of text boxes)

Once you are in a text box (or picture or other object) you can press TAB to move between them.  You can add a text box into a document by pressing alt+n, x, enter then press escape once (so you are out of the text itself but the text box is still selected), then you can press TAB to move between the objects in the document (this wraps so if you press TAB on the last object in the document it will jump back to the first object).  Be sure to either delete the text box you added or not save changes to this document!

You can also use the accessibility checker, which is handy for finding things but I'll warn you it's not the most direct route:  In Word 2016 you can get to this from the "tell me what you want to do" edit box by pressing alt+q and typing "check", but from 2013 (or from 2016) you can press alt+f (file menu), then i (info tab), then i (inspect document) then down arrow to check accessibility.  This opens the check accessibility task pane but unfortunately puts the focus back in your document so you need to press F6.  This shows any accessibility issues, so if you down arrow through the details it will say "Warning" then "objects not inline", then "text box 2" (not sure why, they all seem to be called text box 2?).  Press enter on that text box and press SHIFT+F6 to jump back to your document with the text box selected (this works the same as the previous method of adding a new text box but without changing your document.  It is more cumbersome though, I'll not deny that!).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade?

Kenny Dog <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi David


have a look under your C:\ drive. if there is only a program file there
it is a 32 bit machine.


If it says program file and also has a extra directory called program
files x86 then this is a 64 bit machine.


There is a audio tutorial on upgrading from window 8 I think it is to
windows 10 and the steps to do it.


You will only be able to use your screen reader up to a part, then when
it starts to reboot 7 times there will be no screen reader support.
There will be a time it may vary then you bring up narrator to finish
off the job.

The link can be found on my nvda audio tutorial page at
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

You will need to look for the heading that refers about upgrading to
windows 10. It can also be found on my nvda tutorials for windows 10
page as well at
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html



most upgrades do go nicely but you do have the odd one or 2 that cause
trouble. In that case it might be drivers needed or not supported.


By the way i think the free upgrade ends at the 29th of this month.


hope this helps.
