Re: NVDA 2021.1 beta and Code Factory Voices

 

Hi,
It is really up to Code Factory to do something about their add-on, as it is highly unlikely that changes can be made to NVDA to resolve issues at this time (once API is frozen, the chance of it being reverted is small unless really critical issues arise that affects NVDA itself).
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: NVDA 2021.1 beta and Code Factory Voices

 

I have retitled this topic to be very specific for archival purposes and so it's abundantly clear exactly what it's about.

Folks, a request that's really critical now:  Please make your topic titles as descriptive and specific as possible.  During the beta periods this is even more important than it is generally, and it is important generally.

Sorry that I can't speak to the actual question.

By the way to all:  Groups.io does not have a "Move Topic" function that would allow me or the Group Owner to shift a topic from the main group to chat subgroup, or vice versa.  That's why I'm relying on you all to think about whether NVDA is the central focus of any topic you're about to start, and if it isn't, take it to the Chat Subgroup instead.

First, Shaun, thank you for making this suggestion, and I mean that.  Next time, though, please just start the topic there.  This topic is locked after this message:

These conversations, while they can have great value, are not, in any way, shape or form, NVDA-related in any meaningful sense.  I'm not going to quote the group rules, which everyone gets on a monthly basis, but the group description, which really is an excellent summation of what's on-topic for this group:
--
NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) is screen reader software.  The central purpose of this group is discussing how to use NVDA.  This includes configuring NVDA's settings or familiarizing oneself with its modes and commands.  Discussions about which programs are accessible using NVDA, NVDA add-ons, NVDA tutorials and documentation, and configuring synthesizers or Braille displays for use with NVDA are also permitted.
--

I have granted a lot of latitude recently for topics that had, as their beginning, questions regarding whether something was accessible with NVDA.  Once that's answered, ideally, all meta-conversation like this one and others like the Oracle topic that spawned this one, the BitLocker topic that kept going and going and going after the accessibility question had been answered many times, and others need to be conducted on the Chat Subgroup, which is precisely what it exists for:  talking about any topics its members wish that are not appropriate for the main group.  Most topics there are technical in nature and discuss how other programs are used, and similar, but where NVDA is not really what's being focused on, but those programs themselves.

locked oracle should take a leaf out of avast's book on ccleaner

 

Hi.

Subject changed, branch to chat if you want.

I actually think some companies should do what avast did.

I got a user servey on the program ccleaner.

Its just a servey, they want to know whatever, may as well go on about how bad its been getting.

The chances of getting a responce are 0.

A little while later I got a spaciffic follow up servey.

I again answered it, really another servey.

But no, suddenly I get invited to test ccleaner accessibility.

Avast hired an accessibility consultant, who chatted with me 3 times about my experiences and I told him everything as raw as I could and how bad it was.

Someone was listening because someone actually improved things.

I was only expecting basic interface improvements but yeah, its improved.

I am unsure about the rest of it but I can use ccleaner and toggle settings and the like completely fine now.

There are probably bits I can't get but basic file cleaning, options, system restore and a few other things like startup well that is fine.


My only gripes are huge lists like uninstall programs taking a bit to populate and the program not being responsive but if I wait it will actually do that.

They even tried to and fixed health check but I don't of course use that.

Now not sure about continuation of such but even if they just leave the interface as it is even if this is all they do and never make any more accessibility improvements ever this will actually work.

And thats an example of a company listening to their customers.

Now if it translated through their antivirus and other things, maybe I'd actually handle things with them regularly.

Hmph.

That reminds me about my nightmare I had back in 2019.

The microsoft tech didn't want to listen to me and continued saying I needed to update my system even though it was only an optional update.

After it went fruity he insisted it wasn't microsoft's problem, then insisted I had a corrupted user profile, even though I had tried with another account.

His resolution was to reinstall which completely screwed my system.

You know how that ended up.

Obviously he couldn't just tell me, just reformat and its not microsoft's problem but thats basically what it was, he commented I didn't go totally nuts at him like the 8 other users he had call him about the same issue.

I felt I was treated like dirt really and this is from a company that has a supposedly good reccord.

I also had the same issue with another issue I had.

Accessible support techs should be a little better than standard but obviously not.

The software may have java included with it so it may in fact work.

On the other side, assuming this friend is not doing any administrating of the thing and maybe doesn't have to interact with the software itself then it may be a web based application so it may just run like that.

 

Java apps are generally accessible as long as they don't use some odd library or something.

Java is used in almost everything so it would be a question of interface.

As for the software itself, not sure but even if its totally inaccessible there is probably a frontend that is.

Thats either via ms access, or the web, or some frontend access app that you can use etc.

Of course if she needs physical access to the software itself its always a bit harder.

But I have never used oracle database software and probably won't ever do so.

But chances are if its got shortcut keys then as long as the screens read and its got a menu or ribbon it can be used.

Even if that doesn't happen if the dialogs work then you could probably access it with keyboard shortcuts.

Even if thats still a no go if this job doesn't require direct interaction with either another database or a frontend, maybe it will accept other databases or file types so maybe excell.

 

Excell is still a dog I tried it it is however accessible to a point.

Its more the understanding on how to use it and I never ever got the hang of it though this could have been due to poor instruction rather than anything else.

Re: NVDARemote

 

Well since we are on the subject of nvda remote, I don't have the link here but according to various twitter feeds and other groups, there is an ios server or client for nvda remote in test phase.

I am unsure how that would work, but the idea you could control your nvda and windows device with a device the size of an old style notebook sure is scarey.

Keep an eye on the

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.

locked Re: Does turning-on "BitLocker" cause any accessibility issues?

 

I am now locking the topic.  This has been a valuable discussion, and about something seldom discussed in general, so I've allowed it to go on well-outside the group rules as a special exception.

Pretty much all the territory has been covered.

If any additional discussion of BitLocker itself is needed, as we've established it's accessibility profile, it should occur on the Chat Subgroup or elsewhere:

As an addition to the reply I just posted, I am willing to take under advisement that due to covid companies had to jump to using whatever they had on hand and that could be personal computers, however if this is the case it really can't stay like that.

I do realise with the chip shortages that that may not be cost effective for the company right now especially if its a short term contract but its going to have to stop some point.

I work at home for one of my jobs, and that computer is mine. However, the company had there sysop install there software and turn bitlocker on for that box. now everything on that box is recorded for legal purposes and only used for that job. The contracts i signed state I can't upgrade or install any software without permission from them and sysop.

Yeah, I mean it depends on the employer – they said they were working from home but I dnot’ remember if it was stated whether this was their personal pc or a work computer. Even working at the service desk, tryign to suggest that an organisation do thigns differently (or use a different application) is sometimes just a losing battle – they just won’t budge. But you never know

I read that as meaning that encryption is required, and nothing more.  I could be wrong.  But were I in this position, I would be pushing back against the need for drive encryption in general and BitLocker in particular.  It's gross overkill if it's strictly client data that you're seeking to encrypt.

There are other alternatives.  And the one I mentioned has now been confirmed as fully accessible and does not require full drive encryption.  There are others, too.
