Hi, this addon has a bug, when you press NVDA plus ctrl plus n, it announces the current window, for example, I’m in windows 10 mail app, if I press the key to check network, it tells me inbox gmail window, please fix it

was a portable configuration but it was default settings with no addons.

Re: Serious issue with NVDA not reading menus and totally silent in Firefox and Chrome

The original message doesn’t say it is second hand.  Ifr a later one does, I don’t recall that.
 
It is very unlikely that if it were, that someone would have turned these settings off.  Why would a sighted user even be aware of them? 
 
Additionally, as you will see in a later message, it is stated that unknown is spoken.  Exactly what was goind on needed to be clarified.  If the accessibility setting was the problem, unknown wouldn’t have been spoken.  Nothing would have been.  I tried disabling accessibility in Firefox awhile ago to see what would happen and that was what happened.  Nothing, literally nothing read except the title bar.
 
My interest was to help have the most likely solutions tried first to save time and work.

This is definitely not the probllem in Firefox.  And I'm extremely doubtful that it is the problem in Chrome, as I would expect the setting to allow accessibility devices to work with Chrome by default.

Hi Mallard,

For both Firefox and Chrome, there is a checkbox under settings that
says: "prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser." This
should be unchecked. I thought it would be unchecked by default, but
apparently, your friend's system had this item checked by default.  This
would in effect render Firefox and Chrome inaccessible and useless to
screen readers.

The easiest way to undo this damage is to have sighted help.  It's a
simple matter of clicking tools, options, and unchecking this checkbox.

Lacking that, I believe there is something you can type at the command
prompt from the edit box for search/addresses. You would have to do this
all in the blind, so it wouldn't be easy.  I will look for the proper
things to  type in the blind, but as of now, I seem to have misplaced
the information.
Maybe someone else on list will have that information.

Re: Serious issue with NVDA not reading menus and totally silent in Firefox and Chrome

 

Actually hp aint that bad.

The website has drivers and such, but yeah by default there is bloatware.

Firstly remove all the bloated apps from the store.

2.  reformat and clean all partitions on all drives and recreate them.


On my system I was able to blits the recovery and extend it since it was on my second drive.

The stuff on hp's site actually is interesting.

It may come bloated but on the website, bar the support and a few other utilities the bloatware doesn't make it to the site, so if you reformat and get the latest stuff that won't exist anymore.

Just make sure you.

1.  don't install any update enhancer because that could screw things.

2.  don't use their audio switch app.

and 3.  before you do anything some of them have offers for the cloud, take those if you can.

I had the same on my workstation and  I just reformat and there was no bloat.

You can't get the bloat back again and the stuff on the hp website is quite clean.

The only things hp holds are the utilities, diagnostics, and drivers and thats it.

Other manufacturers have loads more.

Look at my asus board for example.

The other thing, Alli, is that you might want to see if Narrator works

I don’t know about Chrome, it may be something new since I never saw it when I looked at settings up to about a month ago.  But for Firefox, if this setting were on, you wouldn’t see anything with a screen-reader except the title bar.  Even pressing alt to open the menus would show nothing.  And the setting is off, as it should be, by default. This is definitely not the probllem in Firefox.  And I'm extremely doubtful that it is the problem in Chrome, as I would expect the setting to allow accessibility devices to work with Chrome by default.

Hi Mallard,

For both Firefox and Chrome, there is a checkbox under settings that
says: "prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser." This
should be unchecked. I thought it would be unchecked by default, but
apparently, your friend's system had this item checked by default.  This
would in effect render Firefox and Chrome inaccessible and useless to
screen readers.

The easiest way to undo this damage is to have sighted help.  It's a
simple matter of clicking tools, options, and unchecking this checkbox.

Lacking that, I believe there is something you can type at the command
prompt from the edit box for search/addresses. You would have to do this
all in the blind, so it wouldn't be easy.  I will look for the proper
things to  type in the blind, but as of now, I seem to have misplaced
the information.
Maybe someone else on list will have that information.
