John a lot of these site are like this. I suggest you also contact NFB or ACB of WIS. I'm getting off topic here. Just do a web search on the federal guidelines. Good luck sir.

Re: Where can I find the federal guidelines on accessibility?

V Stuart Foote
 

That would be the United State Access Board
https://www.access-board.gov/

But, you'll find what you need here, but remember these are Federal rules (36 CFR part 1193 & 1194) for use in Federal agency procurement--states may do as they legislatively adopt, but often comply with Federal guidelines to keep things simpler as they participate in Federal programs.

Federal registry
https://www.federalregister.gov/d/2015-04076

Or published as PDF
https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2015-02-27/pdf/2015-03467.pdf

However if you have a grasp of the old 508 standards--the linked note from the US Access Board probably give a more concise comparison of the WCAG 2.0 derived success criteria as to what will change with the new rules--and that Federal procurement must comply with.

https://www.access-board.gov/guidelines-and-standards/communications-and-it/about-the-ict-refresh/background/comparison-table-of-wcag2-to-existing-508-standards

Best of luck in dealing with your Wisconsin State agencies.

Stuart

Hi,
no, the Dropbox client version that still runs with Win XP is blocked from the Dropbox side. So it didn't help to try to prevent the client from updating.
The Dropbox client for XP no longer have access to the server and no longer can't connect into the server.

You still can upload files with CarotDAV on XP to your Dropbox account. But until now CarotDAV can't create a public link to the uploaded files.

Re: Using navigation pane in word 2010

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hi,

I have a query from someone who is using Microsoft's Word 2010 with NVDA 2016.3 and would like to use the navigation pane to find a particular occurrence of a piece of text in a document. Control+f opens the navigation pane as you would expect. After typing the text in the edit box, he cannot find how to hear the search results which should appear listed on the screen.

I have Googled the navigation pane for sighted use and this makes it clear that the navigation pane is the answer but how can I use NVDA to see the results?

I can do it in Word 2016 but I am not getting the same results in Word 2010. I would really appreciate some help with this, please!

All the best,

Cearbhall

Re: To all xp users who were running dropbox

Arno Schuh
 

Hi,

the update of Dropbox is pushed by one or more entries in scheduled tasks. So it would be possible to stop the Dropbox client to update itself. But as I wrote in my last mail - it didn't matter. Dropbox didn't let you in with an old version of the client.

Yours sincerely

Arno

Re: To all xp users who were running dropbox

I doubt the version of Drop Box matters.  I don't think any version will work.  If older versions work, I don't know if there is a way to stop updates.  Drop Box is not intended to allow the user to control whether updates occur.  When not tampered with or the function blocked in some way, Drop Box always updates itself to the current version.  But I suspect that the site knows if you are using XP regardless of which version you are using and will sign you out.  Others may have information that contradicts what I think but that's what I think. 
 
I don't know how useable the actual site is but you can work with files on the site still if you use XP.

When you type into the search box, and try to review what you've wrote, nvda doesn't speak.

Also when looking for something in the store, nvda goes away, and you need to restart it again.

I'm not sure how to create a log of the crash, because when nvda goes away there's no speech.

Makes wonder who the company think might buy their voices?
I do hope they have tactfully pointed this out to the voice vendors that the nvda screenreader is very popular and people will either start hacking or going to other companies for their extra voices if they don't get it sorted out.
