Hi all,

When using latest thunderbird,  when an address is autocompleted into to field, there is no way to have it announced. This is a rather significant problem. Has anyone found a solution? The instructions spoken say to use arrow keys, but those do not work.

previously, I was unable to arrow through address or edit it, but I have figured out the solution.

If I tab once, after using autocomplete and an address is selected, the use left arrow suggestion is given.  I have moved from the autocomplete area to the actual address field.  I don't know what accounts for your problem.  I'm using the latest version, 78.4.0.  I'm using the portable version but I'm very doubtful that matters.

Hi Brian,

The following is a workaround.

Go to the editable field, and you will be able to read it with ctrl left and right arrows, press enter to be able to edit it.

1. I do a repair install, if such is available, or download the latest installer and do an install-over install.  This will often correct a problem induced by a "burp" during a software update.

2. If Step 1 does not work, then an uninstall of the offending software, a system restart, then a reinstall using the latest installer, which I download before starting the process.  In many cases, and Thunderbird is one of those, uninstalling does not remove user settings unless you specify it do so.  So after a reinstall your accounts, etc., are still there.

I thought someone had proposed the one she'd used.  But, you could ask.  Someone's got one, even if it's a workaround.

Enes,

         You're welcome.

         I'm also going to lock this topic at this point.  I went "down the rabbit hole" of discussing how to use Firefox with it's tweaked settings, which really has nothing to do with NVDA proper.  If something else happens to come up with regard to Firefox itself, please start a new topic on the Chat Subgroup.

In playing a bit more, once I open any site that has audio/video content, in order to access the control to change what's blocked (or not blocked) I have to throw focus to the address box, Shift+Tab once, then right arrow to get to that button.  Hitting enter then gives a dropdown related to that site and its specific permissions, and the autoplay selection is the first in the permissions list.

It appears that all adding/changing of sites is done via this method, while the Autoplay Settings dialog is mostly focused on removing individual sites or all sites for which you've set non-default handling.

locked Re: firefox autoplay exceptions accessibility issue

 

When I look at the Autoplay page, at the top is a dropdown that allows you to pick the default action (which is Block Audio by default) for all websites which can be changed to Block Audio and Video or Allow Audio and Video.  But beyond that I can't even figure out how you get sites added to the list below, as nothing I put in the Search Website box results in any Add button coming up and the Remove Website and Remove All Websites buttons are stippled out and intentionally inaccessible since my list is empty.  Definitely looks like something's "gone buggy" to me, particularly the lack of an Add button.

Hello,

NVDA is not able to handle those filters with an indication. There are already some issues open for that. I’m waiting for this feature since years…

Hi all,

 

When I turn on filtering in Excel with Control Shift L, NVDA gives no indication that it is turned on. JAWS gives lots of audio feedback related to filtering. Is there any way to get NVDA to indicate when filtering is turned on? Is there an add on related to this?

 

Thanks,

David
