Hi Bryan

 

Thanks for the help. I am only subscribed to the NVDA group.

Christo,

           I am happy to help with that, but am I safe in presuming you mean for Groups.io?   And, if that presumption is safe, that you are subscribed to multiple groups on Groups.io?

           If you were to be subscribed to only one or two, simply unsubscribing and resubscribing would be the "quick and dirty" method of achieving your goal with ease.  But if you're subscribed to many groups you want to do this through your Groups.io account, instead.  Knowing the situation would be helpful.

           And before anyone says, and they would be right, that this is not NVDA-related, it is related to using Groups.io effectively, and historically we have allowed questions and answers regarding that because it benefits everyone to have this information as a Groups.io member.

A web dialog that isn't automatically read by NVDA

Devin Prater
 

Hi all. I can't give the specific page, and can't find the HTML or JavaScript source for this dialog, but I've found a dialog on the web that is not read automatically by NVDA. This problem is in Google Chrome, but is not with Firefox. The text of the dialog is not read by NVDA, but the OK button is, and the OK and cancel buttons can be navigated to. The text can be reached with Object Navigation.
However, the text of the dialog is read automatically by Narrator in Google Chrome. It is not read automatically by JAWS, though. Any ideas on what's causing this, or any ways to fix? Or am I missing some Google Chrome addon or something?

Hi List

 

I need to change my email address. I haven’t done that ever, so I need help to do that. Can someone please advise me how to go about this little problem.

This is described in the documentation. What didn't work?

Try this on the controlling computer:
1. NVDA menu, Tools, Remote, Connect.
2. Put nvdaremote.com in Host.
3. Press Generate Key, or type your own key in the key field. You'll need that key for the next step, so keep it around.
4. Press enter.

And on the other one:
1. NVDA menu, Tools, Remote, Connect
2. Tab once and hit down arrow to set the radio button to Allow this machine to be controlled.
3. Put nvdaremote.com in Host.
4. Tab to Key and put that in, then press enter.

Oh, and as the person controlling the clients computer, you would keep your option on control another machine, which is the first radio button when y ou press the tab key
. Also, their is a radio button, which you default to, which allows you to choose between client and server. Keep it on client.

Hello Ryan. I have used NVDA Remote with a few clients of mine in the past and it works well for them and I.

Then you put in the hostname  put in the hostname, which  is

By the way, you can also create your own key by just thinking of a word, and putting the word in the key box and then telling the clients what the word is.

Re: NVDA integration in video games

Josh Kennedy
 

if NVDA had real time recognition like voiceover does on iOS 14, then we would have access to a lot more applications including video games. Voiceover uses a Neural Engine and artificial intelligence to do screen recognition, image recognition and description, and real time live OCR and it also recognizes controls based on pixels on the screen and matrices. Making many applications including video games very accessible and applications which did not used to be accessible or now suddenly accessible with voiceover artificial intelligent Neural Engine recognition. it would be excellent if NVDA could implement this feature very soon. I believe that it directly access of the GPU, and based on pixels on the screen and live screen or some kind of image scanning, it recognizes various inaccessible controls directly even if they are just drawing on the screen with pixels, then it turns those controls into accessible controls that voiceover can interpret. If anybody I could do this it would be excellent.


Re: NVDA integration in video games

Is there a practical reason for so heavily policing the types of questions people ask here or is it more of a control thing? I mean, dude’s question was NVDA related. Why be such a cop about it?

First, this topic does not belong on the main list; it should be on the chat or development sublists.
Second, the NVDA controler client is a programmatic way of developers integrating their software with NVDA. For example, it allows them to send speech or Braille to NVDA to be output. As for weather we can "integrate the NVDA to any software or game", that depends what you mean. There is no technical reason why any proficient developer would be unable to so integrate their Windows program with NVDA. At the end-user side, the answer is not really: integration of this type requires modification of the program itself, while integration via scripting requires some sort of events that NVDA can hook into, which many programs simply do not provide.

Hi, Quentin

 

Sorry for the confusion, I sent a subsequent message to say that I now have it working, thanks.  Don’t know what I didn’t do right the first time round other than, probably, not following procedure correctly but have got it to work now using the automatic detection setting.

 

Thanks

Hi Richard,

 

I don't have one handy to test, but according to the User Guide: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#HumanWareBrailliant it should work.

Are you getting an error or message or simply no Braille?

NVDA integration in video games

abdul muhamin
 

Hi. Now a days, video games developers are trying to integrate NVDA support in video games like skullgirls and the emulator called retroarch, I’ve seen a file in both the mentioned game/emulator called NVDA controller client.dll, I think its related to the speech during the menues. So my question is, can we also integrate the NVDA to any software or game? I’m sure it requires advance knowledge in programing languages, what do you think?

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


Re: Tutorials On New Facebook Platform?

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

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,
