words with no spaces on this web page?

Sarah k Alawami
 

Hello. You can access this web page  to see what I’m talking about. When I explore the page, I get words with no spaces, yet the sighted person sees words with spaces. I’ve been in touch with the expo guys, and they have been in touch with their developers who did this form and the site, and they suggested I use chrome, that failed, and brave failed. Here is an example of what I’m seeing.

 

 

ThankyouforyourinterestinparticipatinginFlightSimExpoonSeptember24-26,2021inSanDiego,California. 

 

The form where the radio buttons read correctly.  The section reading “In-Person Registration - All Weekend ($70.00)” reads correctly as well, but what should I tell them about what’s going on. Narrator shows each word as a separate element by the way.

 

Take care.


locked IE being removed from Win 10 20H2 and later, effective June 15th 2022 #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

          Even though this message is not related to NVDA, the impact of this change is so important, and it is so likely to affect quite a few members who still use IE routinely, the information needs to be shared.  I will lock this topic as soon as I post it, as it's meant as announcement only.

See the article on techcommunity.microsoft.com entitled, Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement FAQ.

Those in business settings where they are forced to still use IE for specific sites also should pass this information along to "the powers that be" so that they can be aware of the change that's coming.

You need to start making plans to transition away from IE now, if you have not done so already.

Re: How to use NVDA to navigate and use text boxes inserted in MS Word

Brian, do you have a website with all of your tutorials and such available, rather than having to push them out any time someone needs one via Google drive? Not that there's anything wrong with the latter, but it seems like it would be easier on you.

I’m glad other people have made observations about having trouble navigating text boxes.  I’ve received some documents recently that used them and were inaccessible.  I believe I posted on another list about using text boxes because it wasn’t directly related to NVDA.

Re: How to use NVDA to navigate and use text boxes inserted in MS Word

 

My question here is:  What is it that you are trying to accomplish?

My gut makes me suspect you may be trying to create a form that can be filled out.  If my gut is correct, you're much better off using MS-Word fillable forms, which are 100% accessible if you know how to create them.  I know I've posted my tutorials about doing this (which aren't comprehensive, but more of a how to get started sort of thing) here or on the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users Group, or both.  I may have even posted on the Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group.  That material has made the rounds quite a few times.

NVDA+N,H,U  to open up the NVDA User Guide.

Then read section 12.4 - Configuration Profiles.  You want to set one up when you're actually using K1000 so that NVDA's voice is off.  It should default to automatic trigger if you do this so that anytime you have K1000 open and focus in the program NVDA's voice will be silenced.

Automatically turning NVDA voice off in a specific program

dennis huckle <denniswhuckle@...>
 

I use a scanning program called k1000.

Is there a configuration I can set up to turn the nvda voice off and use my braille display when k1000 starts and return the voice when the program ends.

Of course I could use spacebar dots 1 3 4 but would just like to try another method.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

I haven't done it in awhile, but from memory it should work fine - NVDA will follow the system focus - whether you use one or two monitors, the system focus is still the same - it's just a handy way of having multiple windows visible at once (for those who like that sort of thing).

 

If you do have any issues with it, once you get it up and running, please do let us know.

I assume you mean extended desktop mode, as opposed to mirror mode.

If you're talking about mirror mode, I can't say that I've tried that. If
the screens were of different resolution, I'm not really sure what might
happen, but it would probably still work fine.

The last three years I worked in public schools,  I was using an hp laptop and I had  a monitor mouse and keyboard attached to the laptop so the student I  was working with  could participate in the lesson.

At that time  I was   using current versions of windows, office, nvda  and some on-line web sites  featuring software for beginner to intermediate reading skills.

The only time   I experienced any problems with nvda,  was when the school network did updates originating from central office.

Re: How to use NVDA to navigate and use text boxes inserted in MS Word

Quentin Christensen
 

Text boxes in Word are not good practice, and we recommend avoiding them.  Word's accessibility checker also flags them as problematic, and not just for NVDA.

If you want data in boxes, with or without borders around the text, you should use tables.

You can get to the text boxes via the accessibility checker:
Alt+r, then a, then 1, then a again.  Down arrow to the "Image or text not inline" in the treeview, expand that and select a text box and press enter.  You can then tab between additional text boxes.

You can also get there by adding another text box - alt+n, x, then escape from editing the new text box but keep it selected, and tab to others.

In fact the accessibility checker mostly complains about it not being inline, but even inline text boxes aren't easily read, they just appear as "slash" when reading.  If you select the "slash" you can press enter to go into it and read it, but note that it still isn't proper text - eg if you press control+a to select everything in the document, and copied it into say notepad, you'd lose the text boxes and all their content.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello Everyone,

I want to know how NVDA should interact with the text box in Word. If you want to insert a text box, you can open the Word document and press Alt + N, X in turn.
Is there any information to indicate this?
Sorry, I can't access the text box well using UIA and non-UIA.
However, many resume templates use it, and we should be able to interact with it easily.

Thanks.

Re: nvda program to read when there are numbers

it is a bit better it reads the details in the numbers but it is a bit better if it is a number with more than 3 numbers if they are separated by a symbol it keeps doing it but it reads it a bit better than before

Hi


to turn it on use the shift + nvda key + the letter L It will tell you if you turned it on or off like a toggle.


If the same keys while holding down the shift key + nvda key + hitting the letter L 2 times will bring up a settings box you can increase it from 2 to what ever it ends at.


If it is not what you are looking for it can be uninstalled from nvda under the add on manager section.

I think you are saying that it is pronouncing individual digits, instead of saying the number as a whole?
In other words:

It says: 1 0 0 0 0
But you want: ten thousand

That shouldn't be happening.  What is the speech synthesizer that you are using?

Also, what are your NVDA language and Windows language set to?

In some places, I believe ten thousand is written numerically as:

10.000

While in others it is written:

10,000

Do either of those, the one with the period as thousands separator, or the one with the comma as thousands separator, speak correctly for you?
