Hi


It might not of been updated to work with the latest version of nvda. I just remember a problem a while back like that he mentioned doing that and am pretty sure it was that add on. Some people have not come up to the latest version of nvda yet because some of there add ons will not work with it.

Hi

 

 

if i remember right there was a add on called clip speak which would do

some thing strange like that.

 

 

I would go to copy a file but it would not copy it or some times it

would  then i could paste it.

 

 

But have nto used it for a long time so that bug might of been fixed.

 

 

I am sure it was that add on? if you have it disabled  it then try and

copy a file etc and see if it does the job if yes properly a few times

then re enable the add on and see it it mucks up again..

 

Then if that is the case it is that add on.

 

 

I think it might of been based off the fake clipboard add on?

Re: Anyway of Getting NVDA 19.3.1 to Read Unlabeled Graphics?

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


I think the golden cursor does some thing like that. I know it can do hot points  like in a scanner program I had the graphics had a picture or graphic so you could as it was only accessed with a mouse put it on the graphic do a hot point for it you could do a few for other areas as well then wen you went into the app use the elements list go to the one you want and the mouse would go to that area then I could use it.


Best bet is give it a whirl and see if that does the trick. You can also move the mouse with arrow keys etc.


The link to the page where you can get it from is https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/goldenCursor.en.html

The NVDA review cursor only seems to read text displayed on the screen. Since the graphic isn't generating a separate nav object, I'm not able to use that NVDA reading function to see it either. Is there any way of getting NVDA to read the numeric window handle integer of an unlabeled graphic? Sort of how JAWS "Say All Graphics" mode does?


Just say something letting me know a graphic is there, so I can route the mouse p        ointer to that spot and left click on it.


Maybe there's an add-on available that gives NVDA that functionality?


Re: Scan mode in NVDA?

 

I should have said, New Issues are . . . in the last message.  You do have to activate the button for a new issue if you don't find one already available, and then you have to designate that issue as either a Bug Report or a Feature Request.

No.  Pull requests are for coders.

The GitHub Issues Page for NVDA is:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

Issues are broken into two distinct types: bug reports and feature requests, with a separate button for each category.

Always search in the issues page first using a couple of keywords specific to your feature request, as there may very well already be one.  If one exists, you can add a comment to it as well as read what has gone on with it since it was originally created.

In fact, a search I did just now using "scan mode" for open issues returned this in the list:  new functionality give nvda function similar to nvarrador's scan mode

There might be others, as I didn't keep on looking through the list.  You (any you) really do not want to create a new feature request if one already exists, as it just makes more work for those managing these to merge them together.  One request, regardless of how many people want it, should have only one feature request associated with it.  Add a comment if you feel the need.

Thanks! I'm not sure how I missed that add on because I get RSS alerts for any new thing NV Access puts out or the community add on puts out. Great add on! I still think the scan mode should be merged into NVDA core at some point. Is this add on registered with add on updater?

First, where do we submit feature requests, not bugs. Do we submit a pull request?

The feature I find using most often, ironically, isn't even an NVDA feature. I use Narrator's scan mode to actually get to inaccessible controls and otherwise for various reasons. I get it that we have object navigation and the review cursor and otherwise, but how hard would it be to replace object review with scan mode?

If not replace, what about just adding it in, period? That being said,

where do I go to make this suggestion? Do I file a pull request? I thought those were only for bugs.

Resource Monitor and Windows 10 App Essentials 20.04 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Resource Monitor and Windows 10 App Essentials 20.04 are now available. Some internal changes were made to Resource Monitor, including upgrading psutil dependency to 5.7.0. Windows 10 App Essentials 20.04 is a localization update ,and the temporary workaround for Word 365 issue (announcing “delete back word” when Control+Backspace is pressed) is now a permanent fix until NVDA itself includes it.

Important note for Windows 10 App Essentials users: support for Windows 10 Version 1903 (May 2019 Update) is slowly coming to a close – the add-on will end support for this feature update in July 2020. The good news is that Version 1909 (November 2019 Update) will be supported for a while, and you just need to edit at most four files to restore support for Version 1903 (please don’t do that unless you know what you are doing); this is because 1903 and 1909 are really the same Windows 10 release apart from visible changes.

 

As always, the new updates are available from community add-ons website and via Add-on Updater.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: problems with nvda

 

My understanding is that all add-ons shown on the NVDA Community Add-Ons Main Page are compatible with whatever the current version of NVDA happens to be at a given moment in time.

Quite a few of the ones on the Under Development Add-Ons Page are as well.

The Legacy Add-Ons Page includes ones only compatible with some former version or versions of NVDA.

Clipspeak is showing on the Community Add-Ons Main Page.

Gerardo Corripio
 

What setting, or why when having the Digit numbers AddOn installed, for instance when in the Windows10 Update screen giving me the update version, it says the numbers inwhole inmillions, when I have it set for that numbers starting from 5digits, it should read a number at a time? What special circumstances should be numbersbe in, for the AddON to work properly? Thanks for any info.

NVDA getting stuck in frames in Firefox

Greg Williams
 

Hi,

NVDA 2019.3 frequently gets stuck in frames in Firefox (I am using Firefox 67 currently). I seemed to be able to repeat it consistently on this page: https://www.koco.com/article/oklahoma-cowboy-museum-puts-security-guard-in-charge-of-social-media-during-closure-now-hes-going-viral/31925162?fbclid=IwAR2LVA2FN66nWA70ZclWMEaxhCHyyM3d4R4E3-uCtpljzi5raYJF_gbImz4

(any enjoyment from the actual page is a bonus). Sometimes refreshing content NVDA+f5 works, and sometimes NVDA+ctrl+space works, and sometimes I have to restart NVDA. Pressing tab moves through the elements on the page, but the arrow keys only read the frame content. I tried the new beta, but it also gets stuck. I am running Windows 10. Do other people experience this, or is there some quirk in my setup? Thanks.

Greg

Re: NVDA not announcing left/right panel in 64-bit Total Commander

Hi,

 

With 64-bit Total Commander NVDA is not reporting which panel is left/right on pressing TAB. I don’t know if it is trained on the listbox window class name but if so, I can report that the 64-bit Total Commander is built with a different GUI toolkit and the listbox has the class name „LCLListBox“.

Why don't you report this on the TC forum? It would take the developer a few minutes to fix, and would save a lot of work figuring this out in an addon.
There's an addon for this somewhere, searching the archives for nvda-addons should find it.

Hi,

Running the latest versions of Microsoft teams, windows 10 professional and NVDA on a dell latitude series laptop. I am
finding that when I am using the Teams app, NVDA will go mostly unresponsive after about 10 minutes, pretty much without
fail. The only way to get things working again is to restart Teams. I say mostly because I can still use the object
navigation numpad keys to find my way around the UI, but this is slow and cumbersome. The tab key and all of the other
browse mode shortcut keys simply stop working. Has anybody else experienced this?
