Re: NVDA 2019.3.1 and Chrome 80

Clarissa Mitchell
 

Update: insert+F5 works to refresh in Chrome, usually. The unexpected
behavior that I mentioned doesn't seem to happen when using Firefox.

my keyboard, so I put new batteries in it. But the problem persists.
Now I know I'm not the only one with this issue. Sometimes my tab key
doesn't work, and sometimes I can't even get the page in NVDA's focus,
and pressing F6 only cycles through address bar and tab control. It
doesn't bring me back to the full page. After I restart NVDA, it
works. Something weird is definitely going on here.

I am having the following issue with the new NVDA update and the
latest update to the Chrome browser. If I'm filling out a long form
that has several pages, a survey for instance, I try to check a box or
a radio button, and NVDA will not say "checked". It acts like nothing
happened. And if I press the "next" button, it seems like nothing
happens. If I go to the NVDA menu or restart NVDA, and go back to the
browser window, the refreshed page will display. I've had to restart
NVDA countless times just for one survey. What could be causing this,
and is anyone else having this issue with Chrome? It seems to work
fine on Firefox.

Google Chrome Version: 80.0.3987.100
NVDA version: 2019.3.1

Thanks.



I tried insert+space, and that didn't do the trick either.

Ok, so thanks to some of our Twitter followers I noticed the error in my message - would you believe... it was:

a) Deliberate to see if you were paying attention
b) Nostalgic
c) My keyboard has every regular key except the number 3, (er, the number between 2 and 4)

Ok, I'll stop now :)

nvda and chrome

 

Hi not had this happen but aparently a few people on another list well the foundation one in new zealand are having issues with nvda and the 80 series of versions of chrome, its not updating itself when the page updates itself or something like that.

Just wandered if people were aware of this.

I don't use chrome that extensively but still.


Re: The period key not speaking

 

Hi Quentin,

I tried both of your suggestions, but no luck.
I must have done something wrong, because I lost voice and could not
NVDA. So using JAWS I uninstalled and reinstalled NVDA. Then I went to
voice dictionary and typed "pattern" and the voice returned.. There is
no a list ov entries in the voice dictionary.
Both the key for period and the word period are still silent. If I
move on the word with the right arrow key the letters p e r i o d are
spoken.

On 2/17/20, Quentin Christensen <quentin@...> wrote:
When you say NVDA does not read the word "period", do you mean at all? As
in if I wrote in fifth period I have math, it would read "in fifth I have
math"?

If that is the case, it sounds like you have a dictionary entry to replace
the word period with nothing. In that case, press NVDA+N, then P then D
then ENTER (we'll start with the default dictionary - if this doesn't work,
try the same thing but instead of pressing ENTER here, down arrow once to
"Voice dictionary" just in case). Arrow through the options and see what
you have. If you have any you aren't sure of, press ALT+R to remove them
(or ALT+E to edit them and fix them).

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Group,

Since I upgraded to 2019.3.1 the key for period is not speaking. There
is no issue with other punctuation keys.
Additionally NVDA does not read the word 'period'.
What could be the problem? Any ideas?

Re: java access bridge doesn't work in nvda anymore

 

hi ralf
thank you that you've confirmed this issue. it's great to know there's someone else who saw the problem. i use java 8u241. and i don't knew before that there are more than one version of java access bridge and in the ease of access center in windows 10 it is activated. the strange is, narrator recognices it better but not corectly either.

cheers too, but only with coke and water. :-)

Hello All:

Does the JAVA runtime environment (x86/x64) need to be install separately in order to work with NVDA/JAVA application?

There needs to be some clarification as far as NVDA having JAVA/JRE built-in or if NVDA just automatically loading the JAVA/JRE which is/has been pre-installed on a users on the PC either as OEM/user installed.

If JAVA/JRE needs to be installed separately it needs to be specified to NVDA users instead of just saying that NVDA will load JAVA/JRE automatically!

This might lead to some confusion with some NVDA users!

I hope that NVDA developers or Joseph Lee will read this message and will provide some clarity in this matter.

Thank You! to all who read/respond to this message!

Re: java access bridge doesn't work in nvda anymore

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

Hi Heike,

 

I can confirm 2 issues:

  1. With 2019.3.1 and latest Java installed this program reads nothing
  2. When installing Java Access Bridge manually it reads somewhat, but not to a degree it used to be accessible before.

I used this program many years ago and it was very accessible with Java Acces Bridge installed but the newest version seems to be broken for screen readers.

But I still can see the problem that 2019.3.1 doesn’t come with an automatic install of Java Access Bridge, or I missed the procedure to install it.

 

Cheers,

  Ralf

MP3 Direct Cut Chattering too Much with NVDA Add-On

Rich DeSteno
 

The answer to the mystery of why I have been getting constant chatter of the time in MP3 Direct Cut is that I was using the most recent version of DC,version 2.28.  Thanks to Brian's suggestion, I examined the add-ons details with the insert-h key combination. The author clearly states that the add-on was only tested up to version 2.23 of DC.  I downloaded version 2.23 and installed it over 2.28 and the chatter is now gone!  So if you want to use the NVDA Direct Cut add-on, I recommend using a version of DC no later than 2.23.

Re: Vocalizer for NVDA

yes there is.
first of all, in dutch there are differences butween pronunciation
while in both they call the voice clair, but i hear the difference immediately
that's no problem you get used to it quickly
but there are differences!
I don't know what the differences are in english or other languages.
but both are good.
