Re: Using Acrobat Reader DC with NVDA

It should work fine "out of the box". I don't have Jaws to test with, but are you closing Acrobat before exiting Jaws and starting NVDA?


Using Acrobat Reader DC with NVDA

Kelly Sapergia
 

Hi,

I'm having problems using Acrobat Reader DC (hereafter titled ARDC) with
NVDA. It works great with JAWS, but when I have NVDA loaded and open a file
in ARDC, I don't get the message asking how I want the document presented as
far as accessibility goes. All I get is a frame, but no text. Do I need an
addon to make it work better, or are there some settings I need to adjust?

Thanks.

Yours Sincerely,

The answer to your question is, "No," if you are literally trying to append to the clipboard.

That being said, if you're a Windows 10 user (it may even be in Windows 8.1) you can use Clipboard History feature which allows you to collect multiple items on the clipboard (and even sync to the cloud, if you are working between machines) and paste them one by one at the opposite end. So you can do all your cutting from the source document without leaving it, and your pasting at the destination document without leaving it.

Re: appending to clipboard instead of just copying to clipboard?

 

Cearbhall and Dan,

         And I lied, kinda.  I had forgotten that there is also an NVDA add-on that deals with "collecting to the clipboard."  See: Clip Contents Designer

         I tend to be a copy-paste-copy-paste operator, but on those rare occasions that I want to do copy-copy-copy, paste-paste-paste, I use Clipboard History these days.

Brian,

 

I did not know about this feature. It is really useful! I have just tried it out and I could selectively paste  particular items from the history list into a new file.

 

All the best,

NVDA and mailbird email client

Don H
 

Does the Email client mailbird work well with nvda?  Anyone on list using it?


appending to clipboard instead of just copying to clipboard?

Dan Beaver
 

Hi all,


Is there a way using NVDA or maybe an add-on to NVDA to do an append instead of just a copy?  I have a few items from every page of a website that I need to paste into a file but am currently having to copy each one and then paste each one individually into the file.  It is taking too much time.


I searched to see if there was a way to append  to the clipboard in the NVDA help but couldn't find anything.


Any help appreciated.


Thanks.

Michael,

            It's in the NVDA Settings, Preferences, Settings Item, General Pane (which is the one that opens by default).  There are two checkboxes regarding how NVDA behaves at system startup, and I believe the one you're looking to uncheck is the second:

1. Start NVDA after I sign in.
2. Use NVDA during sign-in (requires administrator privileges)

I already commented and asked a question but it appears that the e=-mail provider is somehow providing its own partnership with GMail. AT&T, my provider, used to have some sort of partnership with Yahoo Mail. I don't want my e-mail tied to a provider in case I change at some point. I use GMail for almost all my mail now, my own direct subscription.

If you want to continue the discussion, I am on the chat list and of course, Brian is on it as well.

Louise,

This is almost certainly an issue with using Windows Live Mail with Gmail, not NVDA or JAWS related. I do not know whether turning on the "Allow Less Secure Apps" setting on Google will allow Windows Live Mail access again or not. If you're using 2-factor-authorization it won't, that would need to be off, too.

But, in any case, I recommended Windows Live Mail 2012 as a simple e-mail client well beyond its end of support date, but don't anymore. And that's because it has been exhibiting anything from "increasing inconsistency" through outright failure to work with a number of different e-mail service providers in recent months. If you intend to keep using an e-mail client I strongly advise you to look into one that is currently supported.

I will allow this topic to remain open for the moment, because Gene may have some parting advice, and you may wish to reply to it. But after that, if that transpires, I will lock the topic, as it is virtually certain that this has absolutely nothing to do with NVDA or any other screen reader, for that matter.

Also, you said something about your provider switching to GMail. I'm not sure what you are describing. If your provider is somehow partnering with GMail, you can solve the problem by establishing your own completely independent GMail account and switching your list mail to that account.

I can post using GMail and Windows Live Mail. Not being supported has
nothing to do with whether a program will still work.

Are you saying that you can receive mail but when you reply, it doesn't
reach the group or isn't sent?

I see no connection between sending a message using the web interface and
whether messages are shown as read in the e-mail program. They are
completely different. I'm not saying what you are reporting isn't
happening, but I see no explanation for how it could.

Hi. In this instance, I'm referring to the groups.io web interface, but I'm
also subscribed to some groups on Google Groups, so I've used that interface
as well. I haven't been able to post messages to any of my groups via
E-mail since my service provider migrated their service over to Google.
That might have something to do with the fact that Windows Live Mail is no
longer supported though, nothing to do with NVDA or JAWS. The groups.io and
Google web interfaces work well.

Oops, left off "unnecessarily complicated," at the end.  Using a half-and-half webmail and half email client is, put mildly, unnecessarily complicated.

That's definitely one option, and the one I suspect is actually being used.  And I, like you, am not understanding why, if one is using webmail at all, one wouldn't just use webmail?   I can see absolutely nothing to be gained by reading in an old (or even current) e-mail client and replying in webmail.  In fact, it makes what should be a simple process, no matter which "side" (webmail vs. client) one would choose to use as it would typically be used - for all e-mail activities.
