Re: issues with quick nav of thunderbird and NVDA

Ron,


On my system when I first bring up Thunderbird and go into the addon manager it shows this addon as being checked not unchecked.  It still  acts like it would if it were unchecked though.  I still have to uncheck and recheck it to get it working.  Very strange.

Hi Group,

The quick key folder navigation is a Thunderbird add on not an NVDA add on. What I have noticed is that since a recent update of Thunderbird that some  how the use quick key folder navigation item becomes unchecked under Thunderbird settings/add on manager after you close Thunderbird. You have to recheck the check box every time you launch the program to get it to work again.

I hope TB doesn't mess up when I get Win 2004.

I can't tell you if you can search for music using the Spotify program. You can use Google or whatever search engine you want if it gives you good results. That's how I search for whatever I'm looking for on Spotify.
Search for what you are looking for as:
We Can Work It Out Beatles spotify
You will find results. Follow a link to a result, copy the address to the clipboard, then paste it into the spotify program address bar and press enter. Then if it doesn't start playing automatically, tell it to play.

I haven't used spotify much for a good while, but when I did, if you used the link to an individual track, it would play. If it was to more content, such as to an album or playlist, you would have to activate the play button.

Hi. Does someone know how to change volume of podcast or program when you use Mixcloud with NVDA? There on the page is some buttons where doesnt happen anything and there is also buttons to seek forward or reward. But I cant change volume what I’m listening. I have Firefox, Windows 10 and maybe latest version of NVDA.
I cant searching music on Spotify with NVDA. Writing to the search box doesnt work.

Which SAPI 4 engines are you using? (and are they (legally) free to download?  I still don't have a SAPI4 engine to test with)

 

If you try SAPI5 or eSpeak-NG or something else does it work?  (Just ascertaining the issue is with SAPI4 / those voices rather than say your sound driver)

I think I raised this issue on the addons or devel lists, I can't remember which, last year.

Somebody was able to point to what might be happening, but it didn't present any obvious way to solve the problem, other than to install using an admin account, or rewrite the Null-Soft installer.

Re: Extra verbosity in Thunderbird

It says 68.12.0. Although that's strange because it just updated a few
days ago.


For PowerShell users: if you get a warning about PSReadLine in PowerShell 7...

 

Hi all,

 

The following was discussed on a Windows 10 forum, but it prominently affects NVDA users who use PowerShell:

In PowerShell 7, a message about PSReadLine will be printed. This happens if PowerShell detects that you are using a screen reader that sets system-wide screen reader active flag while running. So far, NVDA and JAWS users are affected, and initial research shows that this warning was ultimately caused by compatibility issues between PowerShell 7 and NVDA.

In the meantime, if you do need to use PSReadLine module, do either;
1. From PowerShell, type “Import-Module PSReadLine” (without quotes) and press Enter. There are ways to do this automatically which will involve editing your PowerShell profile and using a script file.

2. If NVDA is installed, restart NVDA with screen reader flag off (Run dialog, “nvda –no-sr-flag” without quotes). This means apps that rely on screen reader flag will not be able to detect that NVDA is running, and should be used as a temporary workaround.

I began reaching out to PowerShell engineers at Microsoft in hopes of getting to the bottom of this – finding out which compatibility issues were identified in hopes that it can be resolved soon.

Cheers,

Joseph

This was on my work laptop. I tried the installation on my home machine and

Many screens in the installer were being reported as "unknown" by NVDA.
Are there settings in windows group policy which would cause NVDA not to
see controls correctly?
I don't know the answer to that question.
However I do know, that some installers, when run as a non-admin user who then has to elevate using a password, do not work correctly.
I have found this, for example, with NotepadPlusPlus, among others.

The issue goes away if you install as an admin user.

from mack using win 7 64 bit with latest NVDA. I must have checked a box in prefferances. using the wev interface with chrome to read my emails in G mail. every time I check the box to delete messages in the inbox or in the trash folder, and then perform the delete function, NVDA says "alert, click to learn" No bid deal really, I can still do everything I need to do, just wondering why the extra verbage and can I turn it off, thanks.
