Re: NVDA has Acquired a new, and somewhat annoying Feature

This is specific to the 75 version betas of thunderbird.  Turning off the status line helps some but not entirely.  they still haven't fixed the ability to sort columns and the addon will no longer let you do it in these versions.


If there was an easy way to go back to the production release I would do it but my mail database won't port back.

Re: NVDA has Acquired a new, and somewhat annoying Feature

 

Hi Betsy and all,

I see.

If I understand you correctly, NVDA somehow does not read next messages automatically when you delete the current message in Thunderbird, and you say this problem began when you updated add-ons and/or Thunderbird. To really figure out if it is Thunderbird, can you try reverting (going back) to latest public version of Thunderbird? If that resolves the problem, I think a love call to Mozilla would be in order (i.e. reporting the problem in hopes of Mozilla understanding and resolving it). Also, given that some folks did report a similar problem, I hope others can chime in with their findings with the steps I wrote earlier.

Cheers,

Joseph

I assume I have the latest version of thunderbird. It seemed to start acting up about the same time I updated Thunderbird and also did some add-on updates with NVDA but I do not recall what they are.

 

It took me over half an hour even to get in the program tonight when I had shut it down--Thunderbird.

 

I wish I could figure out how to describe what is going one. One thing is when you delete an email it starts saying different letters like it is trying to tell you what is going on. I also can no longer go from one email to the next and have it read smoothly like I used to be able to do by just pushing the delete on the numpad and it going right to the next email. I now have to push insert and then down arrow--not numpad keys for it to stop saying all of those different letters. It is really hard to describe. It was running so smoothly.

 

I wonder if it is because I am running a beta version as I was willing to be a tester for them? I did not think of that earlier.

Re: expanding links that won't expand

 

As a semi-useless aside, but it may prove instructive if we have HTML experts reading, the only way I knew that "Your Account" was classed as a button was by opening the page source for the simmarket.com page, searching for "Your Account" in the source, and finding this line:

<li class="header_user_menu_item toggle-click" id="header-user-menu-container_account"><button type="button" class="btn-header" onClick="toggle_account_menu(this);">Your Account</button><div id="account-menu" class="header-menu-container">

There's lots more that follows that for the display of all of the bits unveiled when that control is activated.

Re: NVDA with updated Windows Essentials

 

Hi,
Hmmm... Let's try this:
1. Press NvDA+Q.
2. When Exit NVDA dialog appears, press R until you arrive at "restart with add-ons disabled".
3. Press Enter. This will restart NVDA with add-ons (including Windows 10 App Essentials) turned off, possibly using Windows OneCore speech synthesizer.
4. Use Thunderbird as usual.
5. See if NVDA becomes sluggish or announces odd things.
6. Restart NVDA (press NVDA+Q, select "restart", and press Enter). This will restore add-ons.
7. Use Thunderbird as usual and see if NVDA becomes slow to respond or says odd things.
In effect, what the above steps will do is let you compare how NVDA is doing with and without add-ons. If you don't have any add-ons installed (which you can check by opening NVDA menu (NVDA+N)(, Tools, Manage add-ons and looking at how many items are in the resulting add-ons list; if it is 0, there is no add-on), the above steps won't matter, as clearly it is with Thunderbird, something Mozilla must be notified (way beyond NVDA unless somehow it involves certain parts of NVDA).
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: expanding links that won't expand

 

Sarah,

            First and foremost, thank you for posting a URL for myself and all other assistants.  I presume you mean the "Your Account" control which, by the way, is not a link, although the View Cart and Contact Us immediately next to it are both links.

            In looking at the page source for the Your Account control, it is a button, but what a mutant version of a button.  If you are using a mouse like I do, when you hover over this control the entire structure unveils itself for you to either point and click or click into text boxes like those for username and password.  Under NVDA 2019.3.1, I find that I can get to it using the quick browsing 'b' command for buttons only when the page has first loaded, and once I land on it hitting enter opens up the whole range of controls it unveils.  You can then TAB your way through all of them.  Even though there are text boxes, buttons, and links as part of that control, they must be TABBED through.  If I try using any of the usual single letter quick browsing commands I am instantly thrown back into the main body of the page itself and out of the "Your Account" control entirely.

             If I want to go back to that control, or even get to it in the first place, I find it far easier to use the browser search for "Your Account," hitting Escape to close the browser search once it's found, then NVDA has focus on the control and you can hit enter and start tabbing.

             I am using the latest version of Edge Dev (meaning I literally did the latest update after I'd opened that page, causing Edge Dev to restart).  It should work similarly under any Chromium-based browser, and probably Firefox and other non-Chromium-based browsers, too.

             Give this a whirl and let me know how it works for you.

Methods for copying text or links from chat messages in Zoom

Scott Salzman
 

Hi,

I've searched this topic using both the group archive search function, and a search of the group site using Google, and I've read through all of those search results.  I've also searched the web, but haven't found any specific methods of copying text from a chat message in Zoom, using NVDA, that will work during a Zoom session.  Sometimes, there's a need to be able to copy a link from a chat message and view a web resource during a Zoom meeting.  So I thought I'd share two methods that, while a bit clunky, consistently worked for me, when I tested them in the latest version of Zoom (2019.3.1) and Windows 10, with the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome.  Apologies if these are common knowledge, I didn't find any descriptions of using them with a screen reader.

The first method is to use the
explicit "Save chat" button in the Zoom chat window, then you can navigate to the saved chat file, which is, of course, a plain text file, and you can find your intended text or link in that file, and copy it into your web browser, or wherever you like.  You can repeat this process as many times as you like during a Zoom session, so you can use this method each time a link is sent in a chat message.

  1. If the Zoom chat window is not already open, open it by pressing Alt+H.
  2. Press Tab until you hear NVDA say "More chat options dropdown button".
  3. Press Enter.
  4. NVDA will say "Menu".
  5. Press Down Arrow.
  6. NVDA will say "Save chat button"
  7. Then NVDA will say "Zoom Group Chat" (at this point your focus has left the chat options dropdown menu and returned to the chat window).
  8. All of the chat messages that have been sent, up to this point in the Zoom session, will be saved to the current location for saving Zoom chats. The default location is a folder called "Zoom", under your Documents folder.  The file is called "meeting_saved_chat.txt", and it will be inside a folder that has a name beginning with a date and time stamp.  It may be convenient to keep that folder open, so you can more conveniently access the saved chat file, as you update it.
  9. At this point, you should have a fully accessible copy of all chat messages, and you can use the keyboard commands of your choice to navigate, select, and then copy and paste the link into a browser window. 
    1. Note that this method selects and copies all chat content, with each chat message starting on a new line, and beginning with a time stamp.  That may make be helpful in finding the message of interest.
  10. You can repeat the save process, which will update the saved chat file, as many times as you like. Doing this has no effect on whether the entire Zoom session's chat will be saved automatically. It appears that each save, including any automatic end-of-meeting save, will append the chat content to the same file.
 

The second method is to use the standard Windows commands for selecting all text, and then for copying and pasting that text into Notepad.  From there, you have an accessible text copy of the chat message content, from which you can find and select some text, or a link, and copy it into your web browser.  Here are the steps:

  1. If the Zoom chat window is not already open, open it by pressing Alt+H.
  2. Press Tab until you hear "Chat text list list".  At this point, your focus is on the chat messages area.
  3. It doesn't appear that you can reliably navigate within between individual chat messages, in a way that would allow you to select and copy an individual chat message, but you can select all of the chat message content, and copy it.  To do this, press Control+A to select all text.  NVDA does not say anything when you do this.
  4. Then press Control+C to copy the selected text to the Windows clipboard.  NVDA does not say anything when you do this, either.
  5. Since your intent is to paste the text that you just copied, you can verify that you successfully selected and copied your intended text after you attempt to paste it.  It may be convenient to have an empty Notepad window ready for pasting this text.  You can paste your copied text using the Windows paste command, which is Control+V.
  6. At this point, you should have a fully accessible text copy of the entire group of chat messages that you copied, and you can use the keyboard commands of your choice to navigate, select, and then copy and paste your intended text or link from that file, into your web browser, or wherever you like
    1. Note that this method selects and copies all chat message content, so you will need to find the text or link of interest from among all of the chat content.  Also, the format of the chat message content that gets copied with this method may not be what you expect.  I tested this with only myself in a Zoom session, so all messages were sent from me to "Everyone".  All of those messages were contained in a single group, with that group of messages beginning with a line that contained the "from" and "to" information, followed by a second line that contains all of the chat messages combined, one after the other, with no space in between them, all on a single line.  It may be helpful to expect that the chat message content will be in this format if you try to navigate it line by line.


I hope that this information is helpful to someone.

If you try these methods, please share any corrections or improvements, and if you know of any other methods of copying text or links from chat messages during a Zoom session, please share them.

Thanks.

expanding links that won't expand

Sarah k Alawami
 

I can't really describe this well, but there are links on some pages where if you click them, a menu pops out. I can get this to work on the mac but not that much in windows under nvda 19.2 and 19.3, actually I've ben having the issue since last year. I think they call these fly out menus. I think this is the job of the web dev to fix but is there a work around i"m missing. Here's an example

  1. Go to simmarket.com
  2. I'm not sure if you have to be log in for this but click the my account link. You should see "my wish list, my cart, my orders etc. I cannot get this to expand even after playing with it. Sometimes I can route with nvda backspace but even then after trying that trick the page does not show these options. I'm beginning to go nuts as this is how I can get my keys and stuff for softwares and downloads to updates.

Take care and I hope that helps a bit.

And by the way contacting these devs is not that easy. I've already tried, they don't really care.

Re: NVDA has Acquired a new, and somewhat annoying Feature

David Csercsics
 

I'd assume the 64-bit Thunderbird would be supported, because you can get the 68.6 builds from the download page. True it's not the default option, but it works here. I don't know about the alpha build though. I expect they wouldn't test that much with stable NVDA.


Re: NVDA has Acquired a new, and somewhat annoying Feature

 

This is true. I might roll back and see how it goes.

Re: Windows10Mail i selection view? To say Selected or Unselected before anything else?

Gerardo Corripio
 

Using the Windows10 native Mail app, put yourselves into Selection View, and space to select or unselect an Email, right? I’d like for NVDA tell you before anything else (subject and other info) when an Email is selected and unselected, while arrowing up or down through the Emails within the Selection View. That way, I could remind myself which Emails have been selected, and in case I think twice about having selected one, I could unselect it. Make sense?

i am confused. Why would an email be selected if your cursor was not on it/

If we don't take time to think before we speak we may find ourselves in a

situation where our speech becomes a bit stinky!

Subject: [nvda] Windows10Mail i selection view? To say Selected or

Unselected before anything else?

 

 

who would need to Intigrate code, so that while in the Windows10 Mail app,

in Selection view, when arrowing up and down through EMails, I’d know if a

message is selected or unselected, before speaking anything else like the

subject etc? I know that not everyone Would be happy with this option as

default, thus maybe a toggle would be useful, it if if it were to be

implemented someday? The selected/unselected status at the beginning of the

speech stream, for me at least, would make it more efficient to go through

mails while in Selection view.

Re: NVDA has Acquired a new, and somewhat annoying Feature

 

It's one of those things where I don't think they officially support the 64-bit version. Who knows why? Might be worth going back to that older, official, version.
