CONNECTING A MANTIS DISPLAY

Richard Bartholomew
 

Hi,

 

So far I have had no success in connecting my Mantis Q40 with NVDA 2020.2; is the only way to do this to use BRLTTY, please?

 

Thanks for any help.

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.11 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.11 is on its way – it will show up in about half an hour from now. This version is mostly a maintenance release as it contains more lint fixes.

 

IMPORTANT: starting from this release, Windows 10 App Essentials will require NVDA 2020.2 or later.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi David


the tutorial will go up to the following website to a page called nvda tutorials for other programs but the main site is called Accessibilitycentral.net

Any of the nvda tutorials will link to other pages to do with nvda and the home key takes you to the main page where you can find other blindness related material.



I think when I looked there yesterday the classic version is no more as of a month or so ago but would have to check to make sure.

If I remember you could go to it in the log out section or on that menu to it.

Hello NVDA Group,

Per the digest version, thank you Gene, Brian, and Diane K., for your
input on my topic, Tutorials On New FB Version.

Gene, I would be interested to receive your tutorial draft when most
convenient. My email is within my signature.

Brian, I did note the suggestion to use "mbasic.facebook.com" and, in
all honesty have my figurative fingers crossed as to the length of
this methodologyworking.

Useful info may include:
1. How to login to one's account after using an antiviral,
anti-spyware program to service one's computer or device. Generally,
those programs will cancel out previous login history to email and
social platforms for example.
2. How to read specific reactions to one's post comments. Not
essential but nice to know.
3.  How to send a message to a specific person.
4.  How to clear or delete messages using the combo box. NVDA does not
read choices even when invoking the insert key plus spacebar. Other
tutorials state hot keys vary from browser to browser.

Gene, on which website will your tutorial appear?

I think sticking with the basics is a wise choice!

Sincerely,

Hi Chris

Thanks for writing.

I realise I can use Notepad or another text editor, but it would drive
me mad as well.

What do you use now?

Re: Two NVDA Questions

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Pele

The focus issue with the VBA editor is long-standing.  I used to use it with Office 2007 and raised it on a few occasions on the list but got no responses.  It got to the point where I used to use Notepad to code macros then copy and paste them into the VBA modules for compilation.  It drove me mad.

 

Cheers

NVDA can't do that refresh screen thing as Window-Eyes and other SR can do, because NVDA isn't using a mirrow display
driver to access the screen content.
If you have an example Excel file with VBA code where you can't read reliable the lines of code please send it to me
privatly and I can verify if I can reproduce it with Office 365.

Regards,
Ralf

Hi Gene

I was rather hoping that there might be a key to refresh the screen in all situations.

I use MS Office 2010 and do a lot of work using VBA. When using the VBA Editor NVDA often misses out lines of code,
particularly if you cursor down through the code and then cursor up again. I have not found an easy way of focussing on
these lines that does not involve going to the top or bottom of the program and losing my place.

I don't know if a key to refresh the screen would solve this, but I thought it was worth finding out.

JAWS and Window-Eyes do not miss out these lines of code.

It may be that I should get a later version of MSOffice, but I am interested in why these lines of code are sometimes
missed out.

Hi


I am in the process of writing up a new tutorial for the new face book look using nvda. I do not use it much only to post and or read messages etc.


Just not sure how much info to put in or not but the more used stuff on face book. there is a lot of stuff happening on it but do not have to use it.

I mean as in the stuff you would not really use on that platform.

so no use putting it into the tutorial.


you can email me off list where there might be some problems like the 3 I saw and see what comes together. it will then be posted on the website unless some one wants it in draft form.

It is not quite finished yet.

I hope the original poster gives more information. What e-mail program is being used and how messages are read may be important, as text or HTML.

All links, whether as hypertext or hyperlinks, perform the function of directing you to a web resource.

But my much earlier point is that it is very rare these days for most writers to include "naked" hyperlinks. Hypertext is far more common, and I use it almost exclusively, as do virtually all online publications. I can't explain why hypertext would not have been announced by the screen reader, either, and the original poster who stated they were not has never clarified further.

I actually have mine make a sound, not nvda as that can't be done I don't think, not at the core, but voiceover makes a mid pitched click when the hyper link is started and a lower pitched click when the link is finished. For example this link would lead to google. if my markdown language didn't brake. If nvda did that, or at least had an option in the core that would be good. I might check the github as I'm following that repo.

Louise,

Thanks. The term "click through" link is mine, as the technical term, hypertext, is so seldom used and not understood by many.

When the text itself has the link there to "click through" to see what it refers to, that's what I call them. Perhaps I should begin using the formal term instead.

I know that when I've been working with clients who want to actually "read an article" (or whatever) that contains hypertext they'll often disable whatever setting it is in their screen reader that announces, "Link," along with the hypertext itself since that makes narrative flow so disjointed. I'd imagine that some may keep this off all the time and either turn it on "on demand" or bring up the list of links after having read the actual text if they suspect hypertext was present in a message/article/etc.
