Re: solution for reading chats in Zoom?

Sim Kah Yong
 

My experience is that NVDA will read out the chat when I am in the main room, but will fail to do that when I am in breakout room.

My solution is to call out the chat window with Alt + H. This will deal with the problem of NVDA not reading out the chat.

You can use the add-on Speech History to read each chat that has been read out or copy each chat to the clipboard.

The hotkeys are :

Shift + F11

Shift + F12

F12 to copy

Hope this help.

You can read the chats with ctrl+f1, ctrl+f2, etc.  I'm not sure how
to copy info from a chat, though.

solution for reading chats in Zoom?

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

There was recently a thread about reading chats in Zoom, but it didn't
seem there was a proper solution, and until Sunday, I forgot I was
having the same problem. NVDA used to read chat messages to me
automatically, but I think it quit doing that for me in about May. How
do I restore this functionality? I've noticed with the latest version,
NVDA now reads recording alerts.

Re: Issue with addon updater

 

Hi,
This is due to the outdated records from add-ons website. At the moment there is a delay in posting add-on updates due to an ongoing add-ons system redesign.
Cheers,
Joseph

Subject: [nvda] Issue with addon updater

Hi guys,
So I manually updated my Sentence Nav and Tony's Enhansements addons from 2.7 to 2.9 and 1.4 to 1.8 respectively. Now, I also have installed the addon updater addon and now whenever I am starting NVDA, it is asking me to update my addons from version 2.9 to 2.7 and 1.8 to 1.4. Does anyone have any idea regarding why it is happening?

Inaccessibility of certain web pages in Chromium-based browsers

Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  I've noticed that certain websites appear to have accessibility issues in chromium-based browsers like Edge and Chrome.  I don't know if it's the screen reader (either JAWS or NVDA), the specific website, chromium-based browsers, or all of the above.  An instance that comes to mind is the tv guide website for my service provider at https://www.telus.com/en/tv/optik/tv-listings.  After you search for a specific show and then try to activate the link that appears as the name of the show, it won't activate.  The links appeared to activate correctly in Internet Explorer, which is the only non-chromium browser I have installed, although I know it's no longer supported.  In addition, the page doesn't seem to load completely in Edge  Version 87.0.664.75 (Official build) (64-bit), although it loaded correctly in Chrome Version 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) (64-bit) with Windows 10 Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.746).  I'm running NVDA 2020.3.  I recently had access to another computer, and the site loaded correctly.  I don't know the exact specifications of the other machine.

Thanks,

Louise

Re: Some topic in the main group indicate that they're from chat

Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  The topic about accessing the bios with a screen reader would be a better example of what I'm talking about.  I didn't realize that messages could be moved from chat to the main group.  I found it when I was reading through the E-mails in my in-box, rather than searching the archive.

Thanks,

Louise


Re: Some topic in the main group indicate that they're from chat

Louise Pfau
 

Hi Brian.  I'm sorry.  It looked like the topic "Chat, NVDA, and Manamon" dated January 12, 2021 was a chat message because the word "Chat" had been placed in the subject line.  I couldn't find another example, because I'm having difficulty limiting the search results from the archive to more recent entries with the text [chat] entered into the edit box.  I was the one who misdirected an inquiry about accessibility with Windows Live Mail to the main group, because in some ways I find Windows Live Mail more user-friendly than the gMail web interface.

Thanks,

Louise

Re: reordering columns in Thunderbird

You may be using a version of the add-on that is too old. If so, you will get a message saying something like, not in a message list. If you are experiencing another problem, I'm not sure what the cause might be.

Unfortunately this doesn't appear to work with newer Thunderbird versions. The key definition is still assigned but the action no longer works.

This is also the case with the latest compiled addon from GitHub.

Re: reordering columns in Thunderbird

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

I’m using TB 78.6.1, NVDA 2020.3 and it works as disigned, The only problem I found at my end was the overlapping hotkey NVDA-H which was already used by the addon screen wrapping.

Best, Ralf
