I don't think that you can just paste into GoogleDrive. There are one and two letter commands to execute actions.  For example, if you are in the folder into which you are trying to paste a file, you can press the letter 'c' and get a list of possible actions, one of which is upload.  This also works pressing the letter 'a' for action.  Choose upload from the list and you can upload to the folder.  There are many keyboard shortcuts for GoogleDrive.  The AFB web site has a ten-part audio tutorial o how to use them with screen-reading software.

I actually have no luck with that. For me it is on but using object nav does not work. See an audio games forum post on the subject. I don't have the link anymore, but a search at the audio games website should help.

Try control m to read the shell. I think it's control m. If not try alt m.

Re: ribbon menues

 

i agree.
i believe that nvda is the best screen reader.
but virtual ribbon menu is one advantage of jaws over nvda.
i even dont like start menu of newer windows.
i like only start menu of windows xp
and if i should use another windows, i prefer to use classicshell or
methods to bring classic start menu of xp to newer versions .
i even tested ribbon menu of windows ten remotely with nvda remote and
could not learn and use it.

Re: shortcut to list data filled cells in EXCEL

Yes Bryan
you are right. I want an nvda shortcut to generate data-filled cell
like control+shift+d in jaws. as you mention, control+down works; but,
it is used to see data in one column at a time.

Here is the article I mentioned in my last message. It discusses problems with the ribbon menu interface itself as well as why it isn't necessary.

That's a terrible idea. For one thing, the special interface causes
problems and inefficiencies. For another, it is not difficult for most
users, with proper instruction, to learn real ribbons and the JAWS
developers did blind people no favor convincing many that ribbons are just
too unwieldy and inaccessible for blind people to use. That is just
absolute nonsense. For a third reason, tutorials for blind users and
instructions for sighted users use the real ribbons. The amount someone is
limiting themselves by using the special interface is staggering.

There are times when special interfaces may be justified but the
justification must really be substantial, which isn't the case here.

I may still have a book mark to a detailed discussion about problems caused
by the ribbon menu interface in terms of inefficiency. I'll send the web
page address if I can find it.

Amen to that!  In addition, they generally end up hobbling the user's ability to use the native interface and, unless you're lucky enough to never have to use any computer besides your own, it's not likely that other computers will have those special interfaces.

I have been very happy that NVDA has avoided creating interfaces that are, in my opinion, completely unnecessary.  Improved convenience of use when the native interface is entirely useable is not sufficient justification for creating a special interface.

I dislike things like Open Shell and Start10 because both make it possible to avoid learning a now not-at-all-new Windows 10 user interface, which is not, in actuality, all that much different than it's ever been in Windows 7 and earlier.
