does nvda have its own keystroke to read footnote?

bering.p
 

Hi.
Thank you for your compliments.
You are the first to report this kind of problem to me and in addition to two very distinct add-ons.
You may have a particular configuration.
To study it, I need NVDA's log in "debug" log level.
As soon as you notice the problem, please send it to me privately and as an attachment rather than integrated because it can quickly become large.

 Best regards.

Paul.

Hi Paul
Thank you for your wonderful add-on. I have been using your word
accessibility enhancement and nvda global extention add-ons. I really
like them for they solve many problems NVDA doesn't. However, for some
reason I didn't know, sometimes, these two add-ons stop working. I
tried to find out with which add-on they are crashing. I was not
successful though. Hence, I decided to not use them. May I know the
cause of only your addons to suddenly stop working?

Hi Friends?
When I  read with NVDA, I want to read the content in the footnote as
well. Does nvda have keystroke of its own to read footnote like
alt+shift+e in jaws? the raven shortcut of word (alt+s, h, is a litle
bit time taking.

Hi


did you have mouse tracking turned o? use the nvda key + letter M to turn it on.

Re: Carousels/Sliders and NVDA

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

I agree with you that this can be annoying, though I do not encounter it on all that many sites. Usually, search announcements are caused by a slideshow, and there is a button to pause it said slideshow on the website. However, there should be a way to stop a screen reader from reading these automatically.

Hi Group,

Recently, I have run into a number of pages that use Carousel/slider animated graphics. When I move using the cursor down the page of such sites, the text associated with the carousel/slider images reads constantly at the end of lines or when you pause the reading.

What can be done to rectify this situation? What should I tell web developers as to how to code in order to alleviate the issue for screen reader users?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Files and folders and drives; properties

Yes, From day one when I learned how to use the computer and screen reader. It was always the control key to silence it. I think it’s all the same. I’ve used system access besides Jaws and NVDA. They’re all the same when you silence them.

Disabusing them of the notion that any deference need be given the screen reader is an overarching goal early on.  You can shut it up whenever you so choose and no offense will be taken!

Any other command stops speech while executing the other command. Thus, control need only be used when you want to stop speech and take no other action.

It seems to me that some people believe that, for some reason, you have to let speech run until it is finished. Maybe they think they might damage the computer if they stop it.

Also, while read tool tips may be the simplest solution, it may not be to your best advantage. It may be something you will want to use, but I think it is better to get comfortable using screen review and/or object review, whatever you are using here NVDA commands. Whatever you are using is convenient and important for a lot of other uses and using the easiest solution before you get comfortable using these commands may be a disincentive to using them comfortably and well.

As far as speech is concerned, it will stop as soon as you issue a command
such as control, down arrow, or any other command that stops the current
speech which is actually any keyboard command.

To hear the information read automatically, you will have to have files and
folders displayed using details rather than list.

While you can easily stop speech, you may not want to hear it automatically
and have to stop it. You will also hear descriptions at other times, such
as on the desktop.

Hi Zara,

When the nvda preferences is set to "tool tips", does that cause a lot of
unnecessary chatter?

Re: Files and folders and drives; properties

 

hi.
do you mean extra informations or wrong informations?
some people say that this option should be unchecked.
but i always use it and i am satisfied of it.
but sometimes in teamtalk for example: it reads the name of person
incorrectly and i should use up arrow and down arrow key again.
in general, i am satisfied of it and love it.
and also, because i did not learn object navigation and dont use
screen review, very offten, its a very helpful feature for me that
nvda reports the descriptions and tooltips automaticly.
i forgot to say,
i am very glad that nvda even describes the items in control panel,
and different items like my document, my computer, etc.
