Re: Keyboard not acting normal

 

Hi jacky.

Yeah, I agree, drinking and eating near the board, I never do it.

You can knock things over so easily.

Sightlings do it to.

I still don't know how some of my family can read the screen of their tablet, work on their computer, drink coffee and eat musly all while talking on the phone to someone down the other end of the house I certainly can't see my self doing it.

I have tried to do it and made a mess of myself so no.

I have to many things about on my system to actually think about eating near it.

Now eating near your smart device with it a certain distance away maybe but the board, yeah its a problem.

While flatting in fact thhe system had a lot of issues, people used cd drives as cup hholders, there was food inside of the computer and so I can't be that bad.


However for a while my brother ate dinner and all meals ner the computer and I never had the issue of him spilling food though he left his rubbish for weeks on end but yeah, I'd never do it.

Just today I was resetting the entire network and I have probably knocked something off the desk, maybe its a phone but I can't find it, its not a big issue someone else can bother with it later but even so.

Obviously is the keyboard, because when I attached another one to my

Yesterday I had a teacup next to my laptop with very little liquid at
the bottom and having forgotten it was there I knocked it and the
liquid went to the bottom of my laptop. I dried both the bottom of the
laptop and the desk immediately but obviously some got inside the
keyboard.
Many keys did not work properly at the beginning, but later they began
acting right. Now only the arrows do not work right, but I imagine
after a while they'll start working, too when all is dry.

Firstly clean the board.

I know some boards can get a bit sticky at times.

I ended up using a vacuum with a small attachment and doing a gentle
suck over the board.

I also turned it up side down and gave it a really good shake over a
desktop and vacuumming that and the issues I have had are a lot less.

As I have a skin condition where skin tends to shed a lot my board does
need regular clearing of extras.

The next thing I'd check if wired is the condition of the wire, I have
had broken wires before.

Also I'd check the condition of the board, while mechanicals may not
have a high failure rate membranes could simply be warn out.

If this is wireless, then if it doesn't work, swapping out the power
cells wouldn't go a miss.

Next depending what it is, doing a factory reset on it followed by a
firmware refresh wouldn't go a miss at all if you have that capability.

On the computer side, I'd then check and update the latest drivers from
the manufacturer site.

Both for the keyboard and if its on usb the usb controlers though that
may need latest latest chhipset drivers though devices will generally
work without those.

I can't speak for logitech but setpoint and logitech options have not
had updates in a while now.

For microsoft their mouse keyboard centre doesn't update much but there
are updates from time to time.

Windows update may have a generic update in optionals or simply there is
a third party update for it.

Usually generic boards don't need software, firmware or drivers though.

Next, I'd run any bios and hardware firmware updates on your system in
case its an input issue, note you may allready have the latest updates
generally.

Next, I'd go through the standard sfc and dism checks followed by an
entire reformat though if you need to do the last 3 steps then its
probably worse than that.

Run a virus scan to but again you would have more issues than a board.

Most likely its the keyboard.

Start from the top and move down and down and down the list till the
reformat part.

As a test, try a different board and try that board on anothr system.

If it fails then skip to the end of this list and replace the board.

Re: NVDA Satisfaction Survey 2021

Quentin Christensen
 

Yes that's basically it - the third question,  “Is the use primarily for Accessibility testing?” , is essentially meant to distinguish those who use NVDA primarily as end-users from those who probably aren't end-users and use NVDA primarily for accessibility testing.  Or in other words, so we can find out how highly end users rate NVDA as being useful in meeting their needs, and how highly it gets rated by non-end user developers and testers in meeting how they use it.

Of course there will be a fair bit of overlap and quite a large proportion of end users will say that even just relying on NVDA means you spend an amount of time doing the testing and documenting of issues which developers may not have done.  I guess the intent then is in that word "primarily" - if you are an end-user, then yes we know you likely provide feedback to us and others to help make products better - and we very much appreciate that, but your experience will still be different to those who are sighted web developers and only use NVDA occasionally to test changes to a site for instance.

So, that question particularly may not be perfect, but we went for simplicity originally (and consistency this year in keeping the same wording).  If you're unsure, go with your gut instinct :)

NVDA 2021.1 and Joseph Lee's add-ons: release in progress

 

Hi all,

I’m releasing add-ons compatible with NVDA 2021.1 – it may take a while before they show up on community add-ons website and Add-on Updater (see a special note on Add-on Updater 21.05.1 on how that ad-on is working with NVDA 2021.1). Most add-on releases will also include localization updates.

 

Besides Add-on Updater, the following add-ons are being updated:

  • Control Usage Assistant
  • Enhanced Touch Gestures
  • GoldWave
  • Resource Monitor
  • StationPlaylist
  • Windows 10 App Essentials

 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • I’m ending maintenance of most add-ons by September 2021, by which time I’ll be focusing on graduate school. If you are browsing add-on source code repositories, you’ll see a notice from me regarding this.
  • Add-on Updater: as I noted in a previous message, you MUST apply 21.05.1 manually until further notice.
  • GoldWave: version 21.06 will be the final version to be maintained by me, and I’m looking for people who will maintain this add-on from August 2021.
  • Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, StationPlaylist: version 21.06 will be the penultimate (second to last) version from me, with the final release scheduled for summer 2021 (southern winter). Control Usage Assistan and Enhanced Touch Gestures contain localization updates, and StationPlaylist includes last minute compatibility changes.
  • StationPlaylist: version 20.09.x (LTS20) maintenance is over and 20.09.x is not compatible with NVDA 2021.1.
  • Resource Monitor: I expect to release t least two more releases after 21.06, one scheduled shortly after the next Windows Server release is finalized later this year.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: version 21.06 is the last release to support Windows 10 Version 2004 (May 2020 Updatebuild 19041), with a ersion scheduled for August requiring Version 20H2 or later. If you are using development snapshots of this add-on, you’ll notice that it will work with NVDA 2021.1, and I’m refactoring modern keyboard support.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Is Oracle Data Management screen-reader accessible?

Arlene
 

Here is the question a friend asked about a job she’s applying for. Here’s the e-mail with the correct spelling.

Hello, all.

I’m seeking work with t tech as a customer service representative. They use oracle data management software. Is this accessible with either jaws or N V D a? Thanks so much and have a great day. This person called Freedom Scientific and they told her to call the Oracle company. I don’t think they have an idea what Jaws or any screen reader is. Would NVDA work with it?

If it was plain tea you do have some hope.  If it was tea with milk and/or sugar, don't hold your breath.

Anything other than a water spill is generally "certain death" for a laptop keyboard.  And I don't say that to be "Debbie Downer" but because of long experience.  You may end up having to use an external keyboard and/or getting the keyboard replaced.

I hope you luck out.

IE Mode in MS-Edge for sites that only work with IE

 

What follows is not NVDA related, but given the amount of concern I'm seeing expressed about the demise of IE11 next June I consider the following to be a public service announcement.  Any in-depth discussion regarding IE Mode in Edge should occur on the Chat Subgroup.

I was concerned for users of Windows 10 Home because all of the official documentation I could find regarding IE Mode for Edge indicated it had to be enabled via Group Policy Editor, which Windows 10 Home doesn't have, and on a site by site basis.

It appears that for Windows 10 Home users (and I haven't checked on my Pro machine yet) there is an option in MS-Edge settings to allow you to turn on IE Mode in Edge.  Another tech I know posted the following, and it checks out:

If they load "edge://settings/defaultBrowser" that's bring them to the IE mode config page. On mine it's got IE mode enabled by default on pages that require it but had to toggle reload webpage on if it needs IE to on.

I had the exact same default configuration under Windows 10, Version 21H1, in Edge.  It appears to make sense to throw that toggle related to allowing reloading on if you do routinely need to access a site, or several sites, that are now IE-bound and are likely to remain so.  And I'd advise you to do it and try it out, now, as it may end up putting your minds at ease.

Add-on Updater 21.05.1 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

Add-on Updater 21.05.1 is now available with localization updates and making the add-on compatible with just released NVDA 2021.1 beta 1. Until further notice, you must install it manually from the following link (scroll down as to why):

https://github.com/josephsl/addonUpdater/releases/download/21.05.1/addonUpdater-21.05.1.nvda-addon

 

IMPORTANT: for now you MUST apply this update manually. If you do apply it manually, you must disable add-on update checks until further notice (NvDA Menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on Updater, turn off “Automatically check for add-on updates”) as Add-on Updater may offer earlier releases that are not compatible with NvDA 2021.1. I’ll provide an update once Add-on Updater itself notices a new version of itself on its own, or if you have 21.05.1 manually installed, an earlier version of Add-on Updater is no longer offered. The alternative is modifying add-on manifests manually, something I advise many should not do because there are add-ons that will not work even if you do modify add-on manifest to make them “compatible”.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Accessible iPhone screen mirroring software with NVDA

Hello Sarah and all,

Thanks sis for the info! We tried reflector but we didn't quite like it because of some accessibility issues there. We much prefer Zoom for doing this but we actually searched for a mechanism to hear the Zoom call as well as Voiceover on the iPhone without having all participants see the iPhone screen.

Thanks again and have a nice week,
Mohammad

Try reflector. It works actually quite good for mirroring devices. I think I posted this already but not sure it made it onto the list.

Hi, I really don’t think so. If you want to have that kind of thing. I think you’d be better off if you can find the right phone that will support NVDA. The I phone is apple.

Hi all,

hope all of you are doing well,

 

I think the subject line pretty says it all. Is someone aware of an accessible screen mirroring software with NVDA to mirror the screen of the iPhone?

Does the software (if it exists) supports having voiceover sound come from the PC speakers?

 

Thanks for any kind of help you may have,

Mohammad

 


Re: Keyboard not acting normal

The first suggestion is to switch from NVDA to Windows Narrator Control windows and Enter and see if the problems persist.

If it does it becomes possible that this is a hardware fault - have you had any spillages?
To confirm this you could plug in an alternative keyboard - any USB will do for diagnostics and see if you regain your arrow keys then.
This would pretty much confirm a hardware fault if it clears the problems.
If you have had a spillage then a period of drying out may help but not guaranteed.

If Narrator interacts with the keyboard without problem then a clean re-install of NVDA would hopefully remove the problem.

Subject: [nvda] Keyboard not acting normal

Hi Group,

My keyboard has not been acting normal since yesterday.
I cannot use the arrow keys. Only the left arrow key moves.
At first the NVDA key did not work but later misteriously started to work. I rebooted a few times hoping itcorrect itself I am having a hard time writing this message.
Any ideas why this is happening and how to correct this?

Re: Keyboard not acting normal

 

Can you give us more details about both the computer and the keyboard?

Laptop or desktop?

Make and model of computer?

If desktop, "standard issue" keyboard that came with it or third party?

If third-party, make and model of the keyboard?

Presuming you're running Windows 10, check Settings, Update & Security, Windows Update Pane, View Update History to see what updates may have been applied, and at the correct timeframe to have possibly triggered the issue.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.
