faced 2 problems while using zoom with NVDA

Sharad Koirala
 

hi group members,

I am facing two problems while using zoom with NVDA:
1. I am not able to access the screen someone has shared in a meeting,
for e.g. when I am attending a powerpoint presentation I cannot access
the slides the presenter has shared during the presentation
2. I am not able to access a link shared in the chat box (I even tried
to copy it when I could not open the link with no success)

what could be the solutions to these problems?

thanks,

Re: Uppercase pitch change is not clearly indicated with "Windows OneCore Microsoft Richard"

You can do that but that is less efficient and a more cluttered way to do this.

Change the NVDA settings to say "cap" when an upper case letter is typed.  You will never be in doubt again.

Hi,
I have no idea, as they are sort of tied to language packs and speech languages.

about microsoft onecore voices,
is it possible that we can install them on any version of windows as exe?
also, does it still need changing the registry?
or does it need downloading these voices, or its installed in all
versions of windows ten by default?

SAPI 5 voices, but not OneCore voices.

Re: Focus 14 Braille display and NVDA

dennis huckle
 

Hello,
Gone a long way since then.
A lot to say.
Rather than keep taking up space on this list, and at the risk of repeating myself, e-mail me at
dwhuckle@virginmedia.com
and I can explain how you achieve all I wanted to do.
The list you refer to isn't complete.
I have offered the developer of the braille extender add on, who is a French student and developing this in her spare time, to help produce further documentation.
She hasn't come back yet but I'll help anyone on list if I can.
Its quite good, a lot different to jaws but works with the focus displays.

Get back if you wish on the e-mail shown in this message.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Brian, my first thought was about mouse tracking also. Afaik most major
laptop
brands don't allow turning off the touchpad easily without installing some
sort
of third party utility, unless you know something about it I don't?

I can do it on my MSI gaming laptop with FN+F3, but none of my HP laptops
support it that I've ever been able to find. Same for lower end Dells, I
believe.

Re: Focus keeps shifting in NVDA

 

hi brian.
Now, after all of the above, you can use Device Manager to disable a
mousepad/touchpad, and it will remain off between boots on most
systems until you use Device Manager to enable it again:
1. Open Device Manager
2. Expand the Mice and other pointing devices entry.  Under which you
should find your touchpad.  In my case, that is Synaptics SMBus
TouchPad.
3. Select your TouchPad device.
4. Bring up the context menu and see if you have a Disable option.
Mine does not, because it can be disabled by its own control software.
I have seen some that are able to be disabled.  If you've got a
disable option, activate it.  It should now stay disabled until and
unless you were to repeat this process and choose Enable from the same
context menu.
i did your instruction, its very great step by step for us to learn
how we can do our goals.
but unfortunately i dont have disable option for my mouse in device manager.
i have only uninstall and update driver and properties in the device
manager context menu for my mouse.
i should press fn plus f7 everytime that i turn on my laptop.
is there any easier way to disable the mouse without need to press fn
plus f7 everytime?
thanks and God bless you!

On 4/28/21, Brian Vogel <britechguy@gmail.com> wrote:
Luke,

First, before I get into how to completely disable the mousepad, including
its left and right click buttons, on any laptop let me restate my opinion:
DON'T do it!! It makes a lot more sense to mask the actual area that moves
the mouse with a thin piece of cardboard (e.g., the back of a notepad or
single or doubled over index card) so that the mouse pointer cannot be moved
but you have access to the actual left and right click buttons, which are
far more reliable when those are called for than any screen reader's
emulation is. At least if those are hard buttons, the mousepads that use a
thin area at the bottom left and right sides that act like those buttons
when touched are problematic.

One should always check the mousepad/touchpad controls in Control Panel. In
the case of the laptop I'm using, an HP 15 series, that item is Synaptics
TouchPad, to determine whether your touchpad supports toggling it on/off as
part of its own controls. I cannot possibly say where these would be
located across brands. It requires looking at the settings to find it.
Some do, some don't. In the case of many Synaptics TouchPads, there is a
setting under Tapping Settings entitled, TouchPad Disable Zone Settings
which, if turned on via its checkbox, makes a double tap at the top left
corner of the TouchPad toggle it on or off. If that checkbox is checked, a
secondary set of radio buttons with the grouping entitled, Top Left Action,
becomes accessible, with the two radio button choices then being Switch
TouchPad off for one session or Switch TouchPad off. I have to believe
"session" in this context means "until restarted" while the just plain off
will stay off, even after reboot, unless one were to intentionally double
tap the upper left corner of the TouchPad.

In addition, if I open Mouse Properties from Control Panel, many laptops
have a checkbox available to Disable internal pointing device when external
USB pointing device is attached. I've seen many people use this, with the
dongle for a keyboard-mouse combo, to use the external keyboard but also
disable the mousepad at the same time whether the wireless mouse is actually
powered on or not. I've also seen people use this and just attach a USB
mouse, then placed "out of the way" as a way to temporarily disable the
TouchPad, but such that a mouse for someone sighted is available or that it
can be unplugged to allow an assistant access to the mousepad.

Now, after all of the above, you can use Device Manager to disable a
mousepad/touchpad, and it will remain off between boots on most systems
until you use Device Manager to enable it again:

1. Open Device Manager
2. Expand the Mice and other pointing devices entry. Under which you should
find your touchpad. In my case, that is Synaptics SMBus TouchPad.
3. Select your TouchPad device.
4. Bring up the context menu and see if you have a Disable option. Mine
does not, because it can be disabled by its own control software. I have
seen some that are able to be disabled. If you've got a disable option,
activate it. It should now stay disabled until and unless you were to
repeat this process and choose Enable from the same context menu.

I personally prefer either masking the touchpad or using the option to
disable it when an external pointing device is connected. It's way easier
to reverse.

By the way, if you're worried about the external mouse possibly being bumped
or moved, it's a simple matter to make what I call "a hobbled mouse" or "a
treated mouse" where you tape over the laser port on the bottom which is
what detects movement over a surface. When that's taped over, the mouse
will not recognize that it's being moved, but the left and right click
buttons (and scroll wheel, if it has one) remain available for use.

Re: Strange problem with NVDA and LibreOffice

 

hi quentin.
i remember that i reported thiss issue in libreoffice bug report page,
or at least wrote comment and confirmed thiss issue in the previous
years.
but unfortunately i dont remember the link that i can send it.
i did not use libreoffice since version 6 and dont know that whether
newer versions are more accessible with nvda or not.

Hi Michael,

Is this the issue you are facing:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/4119 There's a lot of
discussion
on that issue, but basically, you press NVDA+down arrow / NVDA+a to say
all, and NVDA only reads the first line or two of the document and
stops?

If so, the workaround I found seems to be effective, is to load your
document, press CONTROL+END to jump to the end of the document, then
control+home back to the start, and then try say all.

I've been able to reproduce the issue multiple times and was wondering
what was going on here. I'm using Version: 7.1.2.2 (x64 of
LibreOffice.
I
have a friend who was also able to reproduce the issue, we have both

switched back to word because of it.
My question then is this, is it an NVDA problem or is it a problem for
LibreOffice to fix?
I'm also using the latest version of NVDA as well.
Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the NVDA Community Add-ons website - WordNav #nvdaaddonsfeed

nvda@nvda.groups.io Integration <nvda@...>
 

WordNav

  • Author: Tony Malykh
  • Download stable version
  • NVDA compatibility: 2019.3 and later

WordNav NVDA add-on improves built-in navigation by word, as well as adds extra word navigation commands with different definition for the word.

Most text editors support Control+LeftArrow/RightArrow commands for word navigation. However the definition of the word changes from one program to another. This is especially true of modern web-based text editors, such as Monaco. NVDA should know the definition of word in given program in order to speak words correctly. If NVDA doesn't know the exact definition, then either words are going to be skipped, or pronounced multiple times. Moreover, some web-based text editors position the cursor in the end of the word, instead of the beginning, making editing much harder for visually impaired users. In order to combat this problem I have created enhanced word navigation commands, that take the word definition from Notepad++ and they do not rely on program's definition of words, but rather parse lines into words on NVDA's side. The Control+LeftArrow/RightArrow gesture is not even sent to the program, thus ensuring the consistency of the speech.

Please note that a prototype of WordNav was formerly a part of Tony's enhancements add-on. Please either uninstall it or upgrade to Tony's enhancements latest stable version to avoid conflicts.

Currently WordNav supports four definitions of the word, assigned to different gestures:

  • Left Control+Arrows: Notepad++ definition, that treats alphanumeric characters as words, and adjacent punctuation marks are also treated as words. This should be the most convenient word definition for the majority of users.
  • RightControl+Arrows: Fine word definition splits camelCaseIdentifiers and underscore_separated_identifiers into separate parts, thus allowing the cursor to go into long identifiers.
  • LeftControl+Windows+Arros: Bulky word definition treats almost all punctuation symbols adjacent to text as part of a single word, therefore it would treat paths like C:\directory\subdirectory\file.txt as a single word.
  • RightControl+Windows+Arros: Multiword definition, that groups several words together. The amount of words is configurable.

Gestures can be customized in WordNav settings panel.

Notes

  • At this time WordNav doesn't modify Control+Shift+LeftArrow/RightArrow gestures to select words, since implementation of such commands are significantly more complicated.
  • If you would like to use virtual desktops feature of Windows 10, please remember to disable Control+Windows+Arrows keyboard shortcuts either in WordNav Settings panel, or in NVDA Input gestures dialog.
  • WordNav doesn't work reliably in VSCode, since due to its internal optimizations, VSCode presents only a few lines of file contents at a time, that change dynamically, and this occasionally interferes with WordNav algorithm.

Evening you NVDA experts.

 

I am overwhelmed by the numbers of passwords needed to do my work. I have to many little Word files each with a secret spell to enter some web site or to start a program. I know there are password managers that promise to ease my anxiety, but I have no idea which of them to trust.

So, good doctors out there, does anyone use a reliable password manager that is accessible to NVDA, easy to use and will not send all those secret words out into the Ethernet.

 

Will your suggestions   be based on at least three months of experience, will your suggested manager work in most situations demanding a PW, and will it be easy to edit when needed?

 

Yes, I know there are drugs for anxiety. I am using those already. They have not fixed the password challenge.

Re: Password overload!

Hopefully, after very nearly 30 years of doing this, Nimer, I have
something worthwhile to contribute, else I've really wasted a
tremendous amount of time.

The article really shows how some very decidedly nontechnical folks
were nonetheless able to devise password schemes that pinned the
strongometer. Hopefully it will provide some grist for the mill for
others in that regard.

I'm glad you considered my articles informative.

Hello Jackie,

Nothing wrong with your post at all, and taking a look at your blog, there
is nothing in that blog that seems misguided. Thank you for posting!

Hi Rick. I hope Mr. Vogel & Mr. Jaber won't view this as overt
commercial exploitation, as it does specifically address a need you
expressed in your initial post.

1st, I love Keepass (note the spelling lol). Perfectly accessible
w/NVDA. It's available from www.keepass.info. Meets all the
specifications you set forth.

Next, might I suggest that an article written by me a few years back
might prove helpful in terms of password management. I hope you find
it helpful.

Good luck to you & General.

Re: Uppercase pitch change is not clearly indicated with "Windows OneCore Microsoft Richard"

Gene
 

I don’t know if the cause is the same but the same problem occurs with my SAPI 4 Via Voice.  This didn’t happen in the much older version of NVDA I also have on this machine.
 
It is so much older that ;people wouldn’t want to use it but something changed at some point.

Subject: [nvda] Uppercase pitch change is not clearly indicated with "Windows OneCore Microsoft Richard"
 
Hi.  I use the “Windows OneCore Microsoft Richard” voice from the “English Canada” pack with NVDA.  My uppercase pitch change is set to the default of 30, but when I enter or navigate to upercase characters, there doesn’t appear to be a pitch change.  I find “Microsoft Richard” to be the most expressive of the “Windows OneCore” voices that I have installed.  Has anyone else come across something like this with any of the other “Windows OneCore” voices?
 
Thanks,
 
Louise

As well as all the other options suggested, Jarte is another popular option.  Unlike the others, Jarte is ONLY a word processor (not a full office suite): https://www.jarte.com/
