Re: NVDA and Creating Anchor Text?

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi David,

An anchor is basically just a link.  If you want to create an anchor so you can link directly to a particular part of the text, here's a guide: https://www.rapidtables.com/web/html/link/html-anchor-link.html

The blue colour is just the default colour that many browsers use for links, just as links are usually underlined - you shouldn't need to do anything special in your HTML to specify that - either leave it to the design of the page itself if you are simply submitting content, or to the individual user browsing the site.

Regards

Quentin.

In the future, is there an HTML guide that will instruct one on how to
create anchor text that automatically fills in whatever is necessary?

Thanks in advance. I do receive the digest version of group emails.

Re: speechhub add-on installation error

David Griffith
 

I don’t know if you had any other answers but as I understand Speech Hub basically operates to improve the performance of some legacy older voices like the older Microsoft voices and some others.

 

It also occasionally helps out in some other non NVDA situations, I don’t know why, but for example on one  machine I could not get the Speak On app to recognise standard purchased Sapi 5 voices but they worked fine when ported through SpeechHub for some reason so was very useful there.

It is advisable to use google hang outs with chrome. I've had to do that now for several meetings I've ben involved with, and it works quite well.
If not chrome then maybe brave as that is chromium based.

No, they're not.  Google Meet is a product line all its own, launched since the Covid-19 pandemic started, that's meant to compete with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and the like.

Hangouts still exists as a completely separate product, though it's said Google intends to discontinue it.  Heaven knows they've done that before.  Voice (which still exists, but is virtually never talked about other than to get a phone number) was replaced by Hangouts and now that's going to be replaced by something else.  But if it's Google Meet that has not occurred as of yet.

Arlene, just FYI, if you have a Google Account you "have" Google Hangouts, though you may or may not have or use the Hangouts App for the Google Chrome Browser or have a Google Voice Phone Number that would allow you to be called by someone else.

Anyone with a Google Account can open the page hangouts.google.com in the web browser of their choosing and be able to make phone calls within the USA and Canada at no charge, make video calls to other Google Account holders, and, now, get into Google Meetings.   You can also send a text message from Hangouts, but only if you have signed up for a Google Voice number and allow Hangouts to use it.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Using+Google+Hangouts+with+a+screen+reader

Then start reading.  Google publishes extensive accessibility documentation for virtually every product it makes, and Hangouts is among those.  There's nothing like going to the source, and a simple web search takes you straight to it.

Re: NVDA becoming unresponsive in Microsoft Teams

David Goldfield
 

This problem is not just an NVDA issue but is more of a problem with Teams and it's one which Microsoft is aware of, although I'm somewhat mystified that it's taken this long for a fix to be deployed to production.

One way to get Teams to cooperate when accessibility seems to break down is to resize the window. In other words, press Windows-down arrow to minimize it and then restore or maximize it again. This should get Teams to resume communicating with your screen reader.

The conferencing/chat app Microsoft Teams is generally fairly accessible, but I’m experiencing a recurring issue. After a certain amount of time with the app loaded, eventually NVDA will no longer narrate the contents of the Teams GUI when using the tab key and Teams shortcut keys. When this happens, the only way to navigate the app is with object navigation. If I close and relaunch Teams it starts working again.

This happens frequently, but I can’t quite pin down a specific condition or amount of time that triggers it. Sometimes it happens out of the blue, other times it seems to happen after I’ve shared my desktop on a call.

I’ve tried restarting NVDA but it doesn’t fix it. I’ve also tried NVDA key + F5 to refresh the virtual buffer but still nothing. Can anyone think of any other troubleshooting steps I can try? Having to restart Teams is not ideal, as I’m often in the middle of a work conference and that’s akin to walking out of the room. Lol. Especially annoying/embarrassing when I’m trying to share content.

Re: NeedSolution in auto open search

Quentin Christensen
 

In Windows 10, when you press the Windows key it opens the start menu, but the focus will likely go to the search (Cortana) edit.  You can either arrow or tab and move past the edit, or type what you want to find.  EG if you type Word, it will find Microsoft Word (if installed), WordPad and anything else with Word in the name.  It will also find documents and settings.
