Indent nav addon question

Greg Wocher
 

Hello all,
When I try and install the indent nav add-on from the website NVDA won’t let me. It keeps telling me it is incompatible with 2019.3. Is there a 2019.3 compatible version of this add-on? I am running the latest beta of 2019.3 on windows10 version 1909

Thanks,
Greg Wocher

You wrote the following:


"    I then hit numpad / and got back to General Settings so,
for fun, I double-left clicked again which should have put me
back in General Settings.  It just sat there and a Tab press put
me back in."


If you really just double-clicked again, i.e. hit numpad slash twice
quickly, that might be your problem. I'd just defensively use routing.
It seems to work, and that way you're sure that you are where you think
you are. BTW, this may or may not work, but if you're using the object
cursor, NVDA-enter activates the object the cursor's on. That might let
you get to some things quicker than hitting NVDA-numpad slash and numpad
slash every time.


Re: Reader mode in Chrome?

 

i wish that save web page as html only format.
if i save them in notepad, i lose all headings and links.
if i can save as html only, it preserves actual and related content
with headings and links withoutt extra informations that are not
related to the material that i want to read.
someone told me that i can use developer tools to do this, but i did
not learn and dont know whether its accessible with nvda or not.

It may not be a good idea to save things in Reader Mode even if you can.
Reader Mode does a good job of presenting something like an article while
stripping out extraneous material but, unless you have read the text you
will be saving first, you don't definitely know that it has done everything
correctly. If you haven't read everything first and want to take a chance,
then you may want to save the material. It probably will be alright but I
don't trust such processes, unsupervised, to always produce the results I
want and I don't want to save material processed in that way without having
read it first.

I tested saving a page as Web Page, HTML only. I didn't test other options;
This was with an old version of Firefox. The page didn't save properly. I
don't know what would have happened with other options.

Regardless of what you can or can't save in Reader View, I would think you
could save text in reader view by selecting all, control a, copy to the
clipboard, paste it into Notepad, and saving it. I didn't test that.

Not sure. If you got the older version of it that works with xp. I really

I suspect it is both. The program is flaky under nvda
and positively bonkers under narrator. It actually opens better
at first under narrator as narrator appears to know how to open
the tree but then you start seeing stuff that shouldn't appear.

I don't know if you already know all this but I'd rather cover things you
know than not discuss something that might be helpful.
Numpad insert numpad slash is the move mouse command to the current
position of the navigator. Hold numpad insert and press numpad slash.
Slash by itself is left mouse click. If you are using numpad insert
numpad slash to move the mouse, then clicking and doing something, are
you then moving somewhere else, moving the mouse after you move and
clicking the mouse? If you aren't moving the mouse, you may be clicking
on where you were before and you may be clicking something unintended.
the position of the mouse might be the same, but the program may be
showing something else under the mouse because of actions you have taken.
Extremely possible in fact, my gut feeling is that focus
only appears to be okay but isn't part of the time.

Here is an example and I don't know what this means yet
but the trouble starts after here. Up to here, things work and
the program prints a message

Digital Contact Tree View item focus selected expanded 2
of 2 Level 2

That's good and normal. When I Down-arrow from there, the next
link looks normal and says:

Level 3 Stillwater 1 of 2

If you use the navigator device of nvda +numpad-5 to see what
focus points to, you get

Stillwater Local Tree View item focus selected invisible
off-screen 1 of 2 level 3

I believe that off screen part of the message tells us a
lot but am not sure what.

There is another heading called General Settings and a
double-click there sends you several lines down to a totally
unrelated heading. This time, I arrowed up to General Settings
and did a nvda + numpad-/ so as to move the mouse there.

I then double-left-clicked the mouse and wonder of
wonders, I was in General settings and could move around and
change stuff to my heart's content.

I then hit numpad / and got back to General Settings so,
for fun, I double-left clicked again which should have put me
back in General Settings. It just sat there and a Tab press put
me back in.

I hear insanity is doing the same thing but expecting
different results but doing the same thing and getting different
results is also a bit wacko. Also, I arrowed down about 5 lines
and then hit Tab and I was back inside General Settings. The
focus didn't move because I could type a single left-click and
was back on the General Settings heading once again.

Does all that help any?

This behavior is the norm when running this software and
it is enough to drive one crazy.


Anyway, it is what it is but I wish I could reset when leaving
one of the main headings so each new double-click takes you where
common sense says you should be.

I have been using Windows10 and nvda since last Summer
and never seen behavior like this. Everything else I've done in
Windows was fairly predictable and one gets the feeling of being
in control.

Thanks

Martin


Re: Is alt + p a nvda or a Windows command?

Martin McCormick
 

Great question. This program is short on self-documentation but
I did run it via narrator which shows a completely different
layout for the screen and one can read the Read and Write buttons
without running the program. If you have narrator on instead of
nvda, the program does put the Read button on the screen and it
changes to Write when the Down Arrow is pressed.

It's definitely part of that particular program.

Subject: [nvda] Too Much Serendipity. I'm Obviously Missing Something.

I am using software in which most or all the regular
Windows keyboard shortcuts don't work so you have to use the
object navigator.  It's nvda + numpad / followed by numpad /
which is a left-click and you're at the top of a Tree View.
Arrow down and there's the tree name which you open and there
are, in this case, eleven items that one visits as needed to
throw virtual switches or enter data.

When things work, one double-left-clicks on a heading
such as General Settings and it opens to reveal several
configurable parameters so one does one's thing in there and then
presses the left-click to be outside of the heading, ready to go
to another heading or folder to open it and do things.

When it is cyber fun house day, the system is totally
dyslexic.  I can check the navigator with nvda + nunpad-5 and the
caret with nvda + Tab and they show the same field I am sitting
on with the arrows so I double-left-click and poof! I am at some
other randomly-selected part of the tree.

It's actually not totally random but it bears no
relationship to what I was trying to do.  It is heavily
influenced by where I've been while the app was running.

The software is a perfect training tool to learn nvda
because of the missing Windows keyboard shortcuts.  The first
time I ran it, nothing worked and that's when somebody told me
about the object navigator and it is a wonderful thing but there
must be something I should test for and manually correct.  It's
not losing focus so much as it just seems to take off to where
the spirit moves it. 

I haven't figured out the difference between the
occasional productive session and total chaos which is the rule
rather than the exception.

I am going to put a link to where to get this software
but I think the problem is I am still learning nvda and this
software is so lacking in indoor plumbing and electricity as a
figure of speech that I don't know all the tricks yet and there
is no other alternative but to use this particular software.

If the problem I describe sounds familiar, it is probably
common to deficient software and playing with this particular
software is not necessary.

This is not a particularly dangerous zip file but unpack it
somewhere you feel comfortable with it.

It will produce two directories, one with firmware in
it's name and the other with program in it's name.
We're interested in  the program directory.
You can run the setup and it will install gd-77S which
is the program.

It configures a brand of two-way radio of the same name
as the program

But the radio doesn't need to be present to run the
program.  It builds a configuration file that one feeds in to a
radio as a last step.

I have been able to use most of the program but it would
be nice to be able to dependably go
where one intended to go rather than pinball around getting
nothing done.

Thanks for any and all constructive ideas especially any

Re: NVDA: Auto-Complete While Commenting On Facebook Using Google Chrome

Richard, I just keep typing, and the list collapses. It shouldn't input a person's name unless you press Enter on a selection in the pop--up list. Unfortunately, if you want to mention someone in this way, and there's more than one name in the list, NVDA won't read them. So, it's hit or miss. Most of the time, I use mbasic.facebook.com or m.facebook.com, and I don't have this problem. I hope this helps.

Thank you to all who responded.  I just thought I had
seen Alt + P in either a Windows10 book I was reading or one of
the nvda documentation files I have but all of you were right.
The software is named gd-77s as it is specifically for a two-way
radio with that specific model number.  It is a Windows program
that allows one to load the radio with frequency power-level and
other important data so that the radio works properly on whatever
channels it is supposed to work on.

Alt + P opens up two choices for the user, Read and
Write.  Read is getting the radio's current program state by
connecting a usb cable to the radio and downloading it's current
configuration.  Writing involves pouring out the settings you
have configured from your computer to the radio.

When nvda is set to beep at various pitches depending on
the vertical position of the focus, the progress graphic becomes
audible as a series of ascending beeps.  It reminds me of a large
jug being filled or what somebody's cat might sound like walking
on a musical keyboard.

That turns out to be useful because the usb interface is
flaky and one has to keep connecting and disconnecting it before
the Read and Write operations work.  When they fail, you don't
get any kind of message but instead get dumped back to the main
program screen.

I come from the unix command-line world after 25 years of
writing C, perl and shell scripts plus almost 5 years of
retirement so Windows is a new world but I also have been using a
Mac for ten or so years making the GUI a little more familiar but
I still need to learn a lot.

Anyway, many thanks and I have a nvda question I'll save
for another message as this software is a perfect nvda training
tool as it makes constant use of NVDA + numpad-/ to change focus.

Re: new version of Edge and setting language Czech

Hi


It looks as though you have to do a search for it  then the results will come up.


so when the new edge is open press the alt key go down to settings then press the enter key when the next page comes up with the setting in the search box type languages it will then search for those results and give you about 4 of them Under one of them i could do my preferred languages etc or have it set to translate etc for me to another language.

I'm not familiar with the program, but if NVDA is working everywhere except for announcing these two buttons, it sounds like the developers of Total Commander has simply forgotten to label them. The easiest solution is to contact the developer of Total Commander and let them know and request they please label those two buttons.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Reader mode in Chrome?

It may not be a good idea to save things in Reader Mode even if you can.  Reader Mode does a good job of presenting something like an article while stripping out extraneous material but, unless you have read the text you will be saving first, you don't definitely know that it has done everything correctly.  If you haven't read everything first and want to take a chance, then you may want to save the material.  It probably will be alright but I don't trust such processes, unsupervised, to always produce the results I want and I don't want to save material processed in that way without having read it first.
 
I tested saving a page as Web Page, HTML only.  I didn't test other options; This was with an old version of Firefox.  The page didn't save properly.  I don't know what would have happened with other options. 
 
Regardless of what you can or can't save in Reader View, I would think you could save text in reader view by selecting all, control a, copy to the clipboard, paste it into Notepad, and saving it.  I didn't test that.

Not sure. If you got the older version of it that works with xp.  I really would not know if you can do this with an over version of firefox. If you can great.
