You can use JAWS as a demo and that may be enough for your purpose.  I see no reason for not calling something what it is. 
 
If you can program whatever you need to program within forty minutes, your problem will be solved. 
 
Also, there may be someone who would write scripts for NVDA to deal with this problem at some point.
 
You also might be able to figure out, if structures are accessible in JAWS, what steps to take to make NVDA see them.

Subject: [nvda] Tree View Lost in the Forest.

This is all taking place with Windows10 and a recent
version of nvda.

I am attempting to run software that programs a brand of
portable two-way radio with operating frequencies and other
information the radios need to do useful work.

When running the software under Windows10, the first
thing one hears after the program starts is the words "Tree View."

More often than not, it is very tough to make anything
else happen.  One can press the 5 key on the number pad when
Numlock is off and also hear "Tree View" there but most of the
keyboard just dies although nvda echos the key presses so the
system is processing the scan codes.  They just don't do anything
much.  Forget the usual up and down arrows and Tab presses.

It's just try this and press that and on odd occasions,
the tree view opens and one can hear the various headings inside.

You can also hear them if you randomly move the mouse and
happen to collide with the right portion of the screen but oddly
enough, clicking either mouse button only occasionally yields
something.

Usually, the amount of fiddling is so great that I am not
sure exactly what opened the tree view but when it is open, Up,
Down, Left and Right arrows collapse and expand certain fields so
things are not totally dead.

It is as if the writers of this rotten code left out
whatever standard structures exist these days to make most
software accessible.

I can get the name of the software if anybody wants to
play with it as it is a free download from the Radiodity web site
and it appears to startup and run even if you do not have one of
the radios connected to your computer but there probably is a
specific deficiency that many different applications have that
this whole syndrome describes so I am hoping there is some way to
beat this monster in to submission as I have one of the radios
that needs programming and my worst fears seem to be validated.

One person suggested I need a popular Windows screen
reader along with some add-on scripts that should make it work.
It probably would work but spending $1200 to program 1
seventy-five-Dollar radio is ludicrous.  One can find somebody else
to do it but we amateur radio operators constantly are changing
things so it is important to be able to do this one's self.

Any constructive suggestions are welcome.

Martin,

         Having the program name, and a download link if it's freeware, would be most helpful for any assistant.  One generally has to play with the actual software to determine anything meaningful when it's odd stuff such as this.

Hi Again

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.

1. I am using a Dell desktop PC.

2. I am running Windows 7.

3. I am running the beta version of NVDA 2019.3.

4. I am using MSoffice 2010.

Pressing <Control Tab> to switch between modules sometimes works.

If I press <Control-F> to find the code and then arrow up and down it is
not always visible, although it is there, as I have just found it with
<Control-F>.

I wonder if this is a highlighting issue.

I have another NVDA Excel question: is there a way to stop NVDA speaking
and displaying messages like "Cropped" and "Overflow"?

Pele


Re: Excel and VBa 2010 Questions

Pele,

I'm sorry, I should have asked for versions of the software you are using.
In case there is a problem with versions.
1. Are you using a PC, Laptop or MAX?
2. What version of windows?
3. What version of NVDA?
4. What version of Office?

With regard to the disappearing VBA code, what happens if you press
control+tab? This should switch between open modules of code.
What keystrokes do you use that show that there is code there and what do
you do that tells you the code has disappeared?

All the best,

Hi Cearbhall

Thank you so much for writing.

1. After I wrote my message I reloaded NVDA and the list of sheets appeared.

2. I do have the screen maximised. I know the code is there because I can
see it when I use Window-Eyes. The disappearing code seems to hapenn whether
or not I have 1 or lots of modules loaded.

3. This is an intermittent problem. If I launch Excel from Windows Explorer,
Excel opens in the selected workbook, then I am not able to change focus to
Windows Explorer, even though, when I press <Alt Tab> NVDA says it has
changed to Windows Explorer. NVDA also makes the sound which means something
is wrong.
I suspect this is a MicroSoft rather than an NVDA problem. I just included
it as I was asking my other questions.

I am upgrading to Windows 10 shortly and will not be able to resort to my
trusty Window-Eyes any more.

Re: a tracking issue maybe

 

I have noticed that sometimes nvda will say 1 thing like a field but I need to hit a button before it realises its either no longer there or something.

It could be simply dodgy web page design though.

Re: Dropbox interfering with NVDA when reading excel files

 

To be honest, the only solution I know is expanddrive.

I should note I have not tried this but it is supposed from what I read to be able to run everything as if you used a standard drive without a client.

It is 70 us dollars, but am not sure about its access.

To be honest I would always run any files to modify outside of a cloud location, partly because of my old school nature.

Incidently its why I like local accounts vs microsoft accounts, the run box and command line, and entering commands rather than always clicking icons.

I know a lot of this has no real basis, but on my own personal system I like things to just work and with all the security issues online 1 less possible issue is better but its just me.

Re: Dropbox interfering with NVDA when reading Word files

 

To be honest I would open the file outside the folder myself.

Access to bits of the client is not as good as it should be.

Most likely if you ocr it its either a security warning or asking you about modifying the file or something.

Usually I quit dropbox when I don't need it and make modifications to files outside my dropbox folder as it can sometimes be strange.

I have had it where windows will not run programs in dropbox till I have them outside dropbox.

Hmmm you know jean I am going to have to disagree with you.

I really concidder coppy and paste announcements to become after a while annoying for me to listen to.

As a compromise, I guess some tone would be fine especially if that could be customised.

Its why I am for some sort of event or theme manager in nvda with sound schemes like audiothemes but we can set up different events such as cut, copy paste, typing if we want, maybe have somethings that instead of speaking we get announcements.

Would be nice if we had haptic keyboards or mice or touchpads on desktops, that may work.

I do sometimes find to many spoken messages to be verbose and grating on my ears.

You may not however.

If the window appears to be blank, what happens if you select all, then copy it to the clipboard, and paste it into Notepad?
 
In a very old version I used to use, my recollection is that if I did that, then scanned another page, new text replaced the old and I could add pages by copying and pasting.  It was a little extra work but if you are going to save eight or nine hundred dollars, its worth it.
 
I don't recall what was inconvenient or difficult to use regarding the recognized text in the window.

Hi.

I am in discussons with abbyy  on the fine reader program.

Can someone else test the latest v15 please, the trial will do,

1.  do the combo boxes in options not read when scroling.

2.  is there a delay on all the menus in particular the file menu and
are all things read.

3.  is the ocr editor working right and reading things.

In my case the file menu delays in both nvda and narator of course abyy
want me to use jaws which I won't be doing, though narator does work.

Options do read though narator does speak a lot of extra info.

Nvda reads the options but you have to tab and shift tab a bit when
scroling.

When I have used the ocr editor the main window where text is seems to
be blank.

These may be spaciffic nvda issues and how it interacts, maybe it needs
an addon.

Maybe after we switch over to 2019.3 I may look into seeing how to write
addons maybe.

I actually work faster with sound not speach. I would if I could speak in sound alone as my brain processes sound way way faster than speach, it always has. I'm weird but ther you go.

However the user prefers, and that can be provided for in the choices, in a case like this, hearing some sort of verification is important.  If you are scanning a twenty page or a fifty page document, you shouldn't have to check the bottom of every new page to make sure it is different from the last page you added. 
 
Also, regarding me wanting to hear the words, I don't want to remember that this tone means this, and that tone means that.  Just hearing a word like copy, cut and paste doesn't take any amount of time that matters.

Hmmm you know jean I am going to have to disagree with you.

I really concidder coppy and paste announcements to become after a while annoying for me to listen to.

As a compromise, I guess some tone would be fine especially if that could be customised.

Its why I am for some sort of event or theme manager in nvda with sound schemes like audiothemes but we can set up different events such as cut, copy paste, typing if we want, maybe have somethings that instead of speaking we get announcements.

Would be nice if we had haptic keyboards or mice or touchpads on desktops, that may work.

I do sometimes find to many spoken messages to be verbose and grating on my ears.

You may not however.

I should add that its been a long time since I used that very old version.  I may be incorrect and you may have to delete the material before scanning new material.  You could probably cut it to the clipboard but if you are going to do that or the copy method, I would suggest that having Clip Speak is important.  You need verification of copy and paste so you can do these things with confidence.  You don't want to check every time you paste to be sure the correct material was pasted.  In short, if you hear that material is copied and then pasted, it will save time in checking the end of every page to make sure it is different from last time.  Just one more reason its long since time to have copy and paste announced as a part of NVDA.

If the window appears to be blank, what happens if you select all, then copy it to the clipboard, and paste it into Notepad?
 
In a very old version I used to use, my recollection is that if I did that, then scanned another page, new text replaced the old and I could add pages by copying and pasting.  It was a little extra work but if you are going to save eight or nine hundred dollars, its worth it.
 
I don't recall what was inconvenient or difficult to use regarding the recognized text in the window.

Hi.

I am in discussons with abbyy  on the fine reader program.

Can someone else test the latest v15 please, the trial will do,

1.  do the combo boxes in options not read when scroling.

2.  is there a delay on all the menus in particular the file menu and
are all things read.

3.  is the ocr editor working right and reading things.

In my case the file menu delays in both nvda and narator of course abyy
want me to use jaws which I won't be doing, though narator does work.

Options do read though narator does speak a lot of extra info.

Nvda reads the options but you have to tab and shift tab a bit when
scroling.

When I have used the ocr editor the main window where text is seems to
be blank.

These may be spaciffic nvda issues and how it interacts, maybe it needs
an addon.

Maybe after we switch over to 2019.3 I may look into seeing how to write
addons maybe.
