Murphy's law dictates that the very second you commit to the release a bug is found of course. its the natural way of the world. grin

Back many moons ago when I could see I used to test and handle the software on line on a UK system called Micronet, for the old zx Spectrum. This meant converting it and testing it on all the different variants of the machine and then uploading the files. I could test till I was blue in the face and then somebody a day later would point to a problem which made it crash or do something stupid.
This is why, these days you need a varied bunch of users. People who are too familiar with software often miss the obvious, much in the same way that a writer does not see their errors in a document.

Hi Kenny,

NVDA 2016.3rc2 is currently available - that is a "release candidate" - if
no major issues are found, then the final NVDA 2016.3 will be released in
the next week or so. If anything is found, then a new release candidate
may be released which would then push the final release back a week or so.

NVDA 2016.3rc2 is available from:

When everyone testing the rc 2 is happy or if any issues emerge, when they are fixed and rc3 is seen to be ok.
The more complex software becomes the more things can get missed, which is why we are asked to test the rc releases.

Most of us tend to use what we are used to using, and it may well be a little while till some features get used and are found to have either regressed or have issues under certain circumstances.
Which reminds me I need to reinstall one of my rc2s to see if a vanishing menu syndrome is nvda or something corrupt in the update.

Re: deleting file from downloads folder closes the downloads folder window

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

If you choose the download folder as some other folder as you can in firefox, does the same thing happen in that new folder, indeed does this behaviour happen in any folder other than the one normally set as default for downloads. I have to admit I changed mine to go to a folder I created with more access privs called unimaginatively \arc
I've not hd this experience there so far.
One thing I do find a bit odd about Firefox though is that it seems to hide the downloads from previous sessions. I find this irritating as I normally open the download list in firefox and then cursor away from the current download to avoid nvda repeating the file details as it reads the percentages of downloads.

Re: deleting file from downloads folder closes the downloads folder window

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Dan,

By downloads folder, do you mean the "This PC - Downloads" folder in File Explorer, or the downloads folder in your browser?

If that latter, which browser are you using?

I'm using the latest version of Windows 10 insider build (actually correction - 14905.1000 - the latest fast build has downloaded and wants to restart my machine), NVDA 2016.3rs2 and Firefox 48.0.2 - I can't reproduce your bug at the moment, but I'll try again once windows restarts.

Regards

Quentin.

Dear NVDA users around the world:

I am Derek Riemer, the chair of the NVDA Con (NVDA conference) for the north American region. Are you an NVDA user? Are you using NVDA in a setting like work, school, for fun, or any situation in which you’d like the world to know? We are having a panel discussion at our fall North American conference, to be held online on the evening of September 16 and the day of September 17th. If you are an NVDA user who’d like to be on a small (4 or 5) person panel, please contact us. Also, If you are someone who uses NVDA, or someone who is looking at the possibility of using NVDA in the future, do you halve any questions you’d like our panelists to answer? If so, please send them to us, so we can prepare questions. Please email any questions, or submissions to be a panelist, to us+owner@NVDACon.groups.io. We are super excited to bring a panel discussion to our first NVDACon US. We have a website at http://nvdacon-us.netne.net/ and you can find our schedule there. Please check back periodically, as we are still finalizing times for sessions.  I look forward to seeing you at the conference!

P.S. If you request to be a panelist, please provide us a short introduction about who you are, and write a short submission about what situations you use NVDA in. The committee will be voting on panelists, so try to convince us that you are the best candidate.

Re: gmail with standart view with NVDA

html view you can use it even with the oldest browsers
but standard view needs always up to date versions of browsers!

hello,

Are the shortcut keys listed in the link supposed to work the same
for the inbox.google.com <http://inbox.google.com> version of the
interface? Only asking as it seems to navigate quite a bit
differently than the help documentation says it should.


haven't compared them, but, yes, I think they are different.
to get the list of shortcuts, use question mark, (shift + /) while in
focus mode. please notice that you need to use brows mode to read the
shortcuts dialog properly.

One area I'm finding to be quite problematic is finding the area
that contains the different folders within your google account,
inbox, starred, sent mail, etc. As per the documentation, it seems
that you should be able to move to this area using the tab and
shift+tab keys, but this doesn't seem to work for me in the
slightest.

yes, you can reach this menu with tab / shift + tab. It is near the
top of the page. You need to expand the menu first with enter. It is
named "main menu" or something similar.
a much easier way, is to use the dedicated shortcut, which is shift +
m, which will jump you directly to this menu.

I am able to move to a list of conversations, messages that appear
to be in my inbox, but using the up and down arrows here do not
appear to do anything. If I, however, use the right and left
arrows, I can move from conversation to conversation, of which a
few things are read to me, weather the conversation is read, the
subject, number of responses in that conversation and a tiny
snippet of the message.

that is correct, left / rite arrow is the way to go to move between
conversations. this is somewhat strange at the beginning, but you'll
become used to it if you decide to continue with.

Using tab if you're on one of these conversations then takes you
to some buttons, delete, etc, while sometimes, using shift+tab,
rather than taking you to a previous button in that list of
buttons or taking you back to the conversation you were on, jumps
you to a previous conversation, just as if you'd used the left arrow.

if you want to expand the thread, hit enter, and then use tab several
times to reach the first message of that thread.
a message within a thread can be in 2 states:
* collapsed, in this case, a preview of the message will be displayed.
and tab will move to the next message in the thread.
* expanded, in this case, full message content will be displayed. And
using tab will go over list of actions you can perform on this
message. And, After you go over this list, you will get to the next
message.

there are 2 shortcuts to move between messages within threads:
* p, to move to previous message
* n, to move to next message

after you finish with the thread, you can collapse it with escape, and
get back to the main messages list.


It may be that I've yet to change some needed setting to make
things display correctly with NVDA, but as I see it so far, it
seems to be roughly the same confusing interface that's used in
other parts of google's interface, one for google voice, etc.

you need to enable full keyboard shortcuts, which you can do from the
shortcuts dialog mentioned previously I think.
there is some setting within gmail settings which enables screen
reader support, but I don't know what it affects exactly.

I'd love to be corrected and have made sure to stay in focus mode
when trying this stuff out, but as with the other parts of google,
it seems that using browse mode sometimes actually shows you more
information and is easier to navigate.

yes, in most cases you need to use focus mode, however, using brows
mode is needed also. Some examples of this: when you are on a message
within a thread, you may want to read the message line by line, so
using brows mode is convenient in this case.
also, when I hear NVDA says section, usually I know that brows mode is
needed. Don't know the exact reason of this.
I tend to think that brows mode is similar to screen review with
desktop apps.
in short, you need to find a good balance between using brows and
focus modes, so you can get the most out of the product you are using.
and being familiar with the useful shortcuts will help you do so.

hope that helps!
good luck!

Thank you for any tips/ideas.

Tc.

and, as the standard view of gmail, it supports ARIA, so, you can
use it as you use the desktop mail client: navigating the

updating weather plus add on?

Lisa P Geibel
 

Hi, I feel so stupid because I don't know how to do this, but I keep getting alerted that there's an update to my Weather Plus add on for NVDA. How do I update this? It says to click on check for updates, but I don't know where to find it to do that. I'm using Windows 10. Please help and sorry for such a stupid question. Thanks.

I just put fixit for microsoft office into google and found some articles and downloads when I needed to completely remove office 2010.

I know with older versions of windows. You can go to the Microsoft site and get a fix it tool to fix things that got broken while you removed programs that are there when you get your new computer. Does that same site still work for windows ten? I can't remember that site I lost it!

For the sighted there is no issue. However there are now Microsoft fixit programs to put things right, but not looked if one exists for the version in question. Its some files that get either deregisterd that are crucial for screenreaders, or the system updates uninstalled demo versions withough checking if all the files are present, effectively sending screenreader data to a null device.Ofr so I'm told.

That's awful. You should be allowed to get rid of things like office if you
don’t want it or you have something already. There should never be a problem
if you get rid of things you don’t want.

Internet explorer has to be there if its windows 10, as does edge of course.

I have to admit I'm not a great fan of chain stores supplied computers as
they often come laden with software that are only there to try to get the
user to pay when the trial runs out, all of which can completely screw up
windows when you attempt to remove them.

Hi


Yes to mozilla fire fox and google chrome. There is no internet
explorer on her version. I went looking for it but is a shop brough
laptop with 10 on it. unless i missed it some where.



it also does not speak the menus for say note pad microsoft word but
yes i could navigate the start menus all apps etc and file manager etc.


But is is like the buffer is some how buggeree even when bringing up a
webpage, it will not speak the contents of it or even speak the menus
when you go to use them.

Hi Gene:

Since she has Office 10, she could try downloading the version of
Window-eyes that comes free with Microsoft Office, and see if she
gets the same error in Firefox. This will tell her whether or not
the problem lies in the Screenreader.
The website for this software is:
www.windoweyesforoffice.com.

By the way, does the phenominon that you describe happen when using
NVDA with either Internet Explorer or Chrome?

Hi guys


I was wondering if any one on this list has done a factory reset for
windows 10 with NVDA?

A lady i am trying to help has a copy of Windows 10 on it with the
latest version of NVDA 2016.2.1


When she tries to go into mozilla fire fox which is online she can
see the page has loaded, but NVDA will speak nothing on the screen
it just says unknown. Even tabing etc does nothing.

NVDA will not even speak the menus up the top either.


She gets the same sort of result with mozilla thunderbird. when you
tab it just says unknown etc and the menus do not speak either.


I noticed in some programs NVDA will not speak the menus or may
speak a little of them.


I can tab around the desktop, but down on the taskbar it might say
unknown or when you get to the desktop it will speak what is there.


I have done the usual and uninstalled NVDA and also removed the
settings for the %appdata% section as well. Restarted NVDA etc and
even done a system restore but it will only let me go so far back.


She is running a lap top i think it is and I am not sure if I reset
it to factory defaults does it go back to where you have to specify
your drive etc like I done on a brand new lap top one time or will
it load with Windows? then it is a matter of putting NVDA back onto the
lap top?


I have also done a factory reset on NVdA etc, but am running out of
ideas. By the way i was able to remote into her pc to see what is
happening but looks like the nvda.ini file might be corrupted.

Could i copy a good nvda.ini file to the usb stick and move it
across and fix it this way by over riding the nvda.ini file under
the %appdata% section.


She does have a computer running Xp of which I can email to with a
working copy of NVDA and move it across with a usb stick.

I have tried with a fresh copy of NVDA etc and done it this way, but
looks like it is still having the problem.
I have also renamed the nvda.ini file to old then put nvda onto
it, but it still seems the same.

The lap top has internet access, but is unuseable to use the browser
or emails.

Would copying a working nvda.ini file from a good pc to the other
one then over riding the file maybe fix the problem?

Any ideas apart from a reformat would be good.
