is there some setting that controls this?

Bob Cavanaugh
 

Hi all,
I had to use Narrator to get me out of a tight spot yesterday, and
I've noticed this in previous experiences as well. Narrator, and every
other screen reader on Windows 7, gave the alt+tab list as a number
out of total programs, for example Windows Media Player 2 of 3. Now on
10, Narrator is the only screen reader that does this. Everything else
I've used with Windows 10 says "Windows Media Player row 1 column 2."
To me this is not useful at all, because I have no idea how many rows
there are, or how many columns are in a row. Is there a way to change
the way NVDA announces this?

split buttons

Bob Cavanaugh
 

Hi all,
Last night's question about Teams got me thinking, there seems to be
an issue system-wide with split buttons. Based on the fact that the
same issue happens with both NVDA and Narrator, I'd think the issue is
Windows, not NVDA. When I press alt to go to the home tab in Excel,
then tab down until I hear insert cells, then press either space or
enter, a new row is automatically inserted rather than having the menu
brought up. However, if I press alt, H, I, the menu opens. I'm not
sure if Teams has anything in the way of those shortcuts, but this
does seem like something that needs to be addressed.

Re: copying to clipboard

Gene
 

Perhaps there is no way to stop it. If you don't use the add-on except rarely to add text to the clipboard, you may want to disable it until you want to use it. I rarely use the add-on and that's what I did.

Hi guys:



Since I obtained the clipboard addon for nvda,

Every time I do a ctrl-c to copy data to the clipboard,

I get a dialogue asking me to confirm that I really wish to copy it;

How do I turn this dialogue verification off?



I went into clip designer in settings but I only found three choices in the “confirm copy when”

Always, when clipboard contains text, and when clipboard is not empty.

I do not see a choice for “never ask”.



Please advise as you like.

Hello Farhan,

Sorry, but unfortunately two services used in the Quick Dictionary add-on do not support the Bangla (bn).

Lexicala online dictionary supports 50 languages:

And Yandex dictionaries supports only 28 languages.

I plan to add other online services that will support more features.

Re: nvda crashes on address bar

Gene
 

You may need to send a log offlist to one of the developers. From your description, it sounds as there is something shown in the address bar that is making something crash. At this point, I'm not sure we can know what. It might be the screen-reader or the synthesizer. it would be interesting and informative to go to the address bar using a different synthesizer and see what happens. I'm speculating, because I don't know what is being used, but I'm suspicious that the Microsoft voice or voices being used may be crashing, not NVDA.

This is another example of a setting that should not be on by default. This is a rather new ability. NVDA will now announce emphasis indicators. I'm not sure what they are, but they are announced as you have described. Context is usually enough and it doesn't benefit listeners most of the time to hear this.

To turn it off, use control NVDA key d to open document formatting.
Tab to emphasis, uncheck it, then press enter. The dialog will close and you won't hear emphasis indicators any longer.

Re: control click with nvda?

Yes that helps a bit but the issue is that I have touchpad and if I
clikc it it always sees it also as an tab. Might it be possible to add
a hotkey similar to the left and right klick to press control click
either in nvda or with add-on? I do not know who to ask to get this
done and that is why I put it down here?

With kind regards,

console toolkit nvda addon

farhan israk
 

I have installed console toolkit nvda addon. I did not notice any change. Rather it disabled insert key. I could not use it. I could use it after disabling the addon. I also could not read documents on libreoffice.


Re: muting

Dan Miner
 

I was going to say something very similar. I would add the fn modifier is usually processed way before NVDA sees it and thus "lost" to further inspection and action. A person can test these keys but you have to be slow and careful and test your speech responsiveness during each key test. Even then, purely visual changes will likely go unnoticed for anyone further alone the spectrum of low partial vision. This can be especially true on Bluetooth keyboards when you put your keyboard into pairing mode with this testing method. *smile*

NVDA won't tell you what combinations of fn key plus another key do and I don't know if the commands are carried out when you issue the commands when in the key describer. Since fn keys in combination with other keys never announce what action is being taken either with input help on or off and since what they do varies from computer to computer, I think it is a very bad idea to experiment with them. You need specific information about your computer.

Does input help describe keys like audio commands? Of course, it describes standard keys and commands but I don't have commands such as audio commands on keyboards I use.

Fn is a key found on most laptops and some desktop keyboards - it's
basically a modifier key you hold down and press another key to perform an
action (which a full size desktop computer probably has either a key or a
button for). The most common is the F1 - F12 function keys often perform
other duties such as adjusting brightness, volume or disabling a trackpad
mouse on a laptop. On some keyboards you actually have to press Fn+function
key to perform the regular function, which is frustrating - you can normally
toggle that, but exactly how varies from keyboard to keyboard.

In terms of figuring out what keys do, if you press NVDA+1 (the 1 on the
number row, above q) it puts NVDA in Input Help mode. Any key you press
while in this mode won't do anything, but NVDA will tell you what it is, so
it can be a way to find your way around a new keyboard without sighted help.

If you normally use F7 to mute NVDA, that's not an NVDA keystroke, but it's
likely that is the key to mute your computer's sound. The keystroke to mute
NVDA is NVDA+s, but if F7 works, that's achieves what you need. If it's not
working right now, it might be that you've accidentally toggled your
function key Fn lock.

Neil,

Mute is typically done through a dedicated key on some media
keyboards, or through F6 or F7 (when used as media keys) on many laptops and
some desktop keyboards. All it takes to trigger a mute by accident is Fn+F6
(or F7) and often Fn+F6 (or F7) will toggle it back off.

This is another of those instances where make and model
information as well as whether any media keys function is enabled (and for a
screen reader user I'd very, very strongly suspect it's not unless the
machine is brand new and untweaked yet). Some makers do highly
unconventional things as far as what function keys correspond to what media
functions.

Gene's advice about using sndvol and getting a cheap external
USB soundcard are both things to try and do.
