Hi Ron. I forgot to say I not only have to do that same thing with NVDA. I have to do the same thing with Jaws too.  I have the latest build with both screen readers.

My search was for ONLINE hex editors. There's nothing to download. Also,
the point was that someone else said they knew of a few but didn't have the

on the light bulb. That's why I posted it, as there really aren't that many
online ones available.

I agree that one should try to avoid the tedium of download and try to the
extent possible, but in the case of something as esoteric as this, if you're
looking for one that resides on your machine, that's likely going to be part
of the work if no one can identify an accessible one to begin with. It is a
PITA, but one that all of us, and for accessibility reasons or otherwise,
have had to slog through upon occasion when no one could give a short list.
And if you find yourself having to do this, posting later about what you
found that is accessible is a really, really good thing to do.

Even if you give the online ones a quick try, and identify a couple that are
accessible, posting which ones are is a really, really good thing to do.

Re: Reading PDFs in Edge Seemingly Broken

 

For anyone who is of the same opinion I am, and cannot stand dealing with PDFs within browser windows anyway, it is possible to make any browser open them using the system PDF reader you have installed on your system and set as the default.  I never like dealing with PDFs except in a dedicated PDF Editor or reader.  Instructions follow.

Making Chromium-based Browsers (Chrome, Brave, New Edge, etc.) Open PDFs in Your System Reader

  1. Ensure that the PDF Reader of your choosing  is installed on your computer.  Also make sure that it is what is set to handle files with the PDF extension (which it generally is already).
  2. Activate the Menu button (ALT+F), then choose Settings.
  3. What you do now will vary slightly based on the browser.
    1. For Chrome and Brave, in the Privacy and Security pane, select Site Settings.  For Brave you will have to activate the Additional Settings button before the Privacy and Security pane item becomes visible and accessible.
    2. For Edge, simply choose the Site Permissions pane.
  4. Scroll down and select “PDF documents“.
  5. You are now at the toggle that you need to switch to ON.  How it’s labeled varies slightly among the browsers:
    1. Chrome: Download PDF files instead of opening them automatically in Chrome
    2. Edge: Always open PDF files externally
    3. Brave: Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Brave

At this point close out of settings to save the changes you’ve made

Now when a PDF file is triggered, it will download via your browser just like any other file.  If you have things set up to go to your Downloads folder, that’s where it will be placed.  If you have the browser set up to ask you where to save it, you’ll get the save dialog.  Once the download is finished, the typical status comes up on the bottom of the screen indicating it’s complete, and giving you options of what to do if you activate the button for that file.  If you select the downloaded PDF file at the bottom of the window, then choose Open, then the file will open in a separate Reader window.  If you also activate the “Always open files of this type” option from then on any PDF file will not only automatically download, but automatically open in the PDF Reader you have set as the default one on your system.

Here is the link to the User Guide:

Basically, navigate to the object in question - a graphic on a webpage, or
open a PDF which is inaccessible, etc. Next press NVDA+R (the NVDA key is
either INSERT or CAPS LOCK depending on your settings) then use your
regular reading and navigation keys to read the result (eg arrows or

9. Content Recognition
When authors don't provide sufficient information for a screen reader
user to determine the content of something, various tools can be used
to attempt to recognize the content from an image. NVDA supports the
optical character recognition (OCR) functionality built into Windows
10 to recognize text from images. Additional content recognizers can
be provided in NVDA add-ons.
When you use a content recognition command, NVDA recognizes content
from the current navigator object. By default, the navigator object
follows the system focus or browse mode cursor, so you can usually
just move the focus or browse mode cursor where desired. For example,
if you move the browse mode cursor to a graphic, recognition will
recognize content from the graphic by default. However, you may wish
to use object navigation directly to, for example, recognize the
content of an entire application window.
Once recognition is complete, the result will be presented in a
document similar to browse mode, allowing you to read the information
with cursor keys, etc. Pressing enter or space will activate (normally
click) the text at the cursor if possible. Pressing escape dismisses
the recognition result.
9.1. Windows 10 OCR
Windows 10 includes OCR for many languages. NVDA can use this to
recognize text from images or inaccessible applications.
You can set the language to use for text recognition in the Windows 10
OCR settings dialog. Additional languages can be installed by opening
the Start menu, choosing Settings, selecting Time & Language -> Region
& Language and then choosing Add a language.
To recognize the text in the current navigator object using Windows 10

Reading PDFs in Edge Seemingly Broken

Sascha Cowley
 

Hi All,

It would seem that, as of Edge version 81, reading PDFs with NVDA is broken. The contents of the document can still be found using the navigator, but the document is reported as being blank in browse mode.

The issue seems to have been fixed in Edge version 83, but this is still 2 versions (6-12 weeks) away from becoming a stable release, and much can change in that time.

machine.



When moving through web pages, mail and other items n items I get strange
results when navigating by character.

I may be moving backorf forth through words in a line and as I move from
character to character, I hear way more stuff than the single character.

Sometimes it sounds like severals characters or even words.

Have I accidentally turned on something in nvda that causes this?

Thanks,

Monte
