Re: NVDA screen reader problem with fire fox version 90

Rui Fontes
 

Strange!

In my Firefox 89 the value is "True" and it works normally...


Maybe dependent of Windows in use?

My Windows is Version 21H1 (OS Compilation 19043.1052)

4. In the search box, enter the word skeleton
5. In the table below, browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI should appear and it will have a value of true. Press the Toggle button to set it to false.

Re: NVDA not reading lines in a multiple column document

Quentin Christensen
 

Is it one you can email me offlist Pranav?

I just created a blank document, set it to two columns, dumped a bunch of text in it, and NVDA can read and navigate fine.  Note that if you just up arrow or down arrow, NVDA will stay in the same column - actually that's not NVDA, that's how navigation in Word works - if you control+up or down arrow to move by paragraph, or read using say all it moves as expected.

I tried using NVDA 2020.4 (portable) and NVDA 2021.1 beta 2 (installed) on:

Windows 10 (64-bit) Version: 2009, Build: 19042
 
Office 365 (64-bit) Version: 16.0.14026.20228

NVDA went silent for some lines. Jaws worked just fine which is how I know
that the document had multiple columns.

This was on my work computer running windows 10 1809 and Microsoft word 365.

I have tested on my home machine that has windows 10 Version 21H1 (OS Build
19043.1052) running word 365
Specifically:
MicrosoftR Word for Microsoft 365 MSO (16.0.14204.20000) 64-bit 

The text is being read but the columns are not being detected.

Is anyone able to duplicate this? I am using NVDA version 2020.4.

Hi,
It works, something probably went wrong during the installation.
Try checking in %appdata%\nvda\addons and let them know.

Hi to every one,

Note2: Set the API response language from the add-on settings window, if your language is available.
This thing is experimental, it may be that your language is missing, I know for example the Croatian one is missing, but if it should be unsatisfactory, in the future I will replace it with an internal translatable list.
Feedback is welcome.

Which, given the state of Yahoo as an entity, is not surprising.  My second e-mail address outside of work was a Yahoo address.  I still have it, but haven't really used it in years as Yahoo as a whole as been slowly falling apart.

Yahoo is no longer robust.

Thus, we're in a watch and wait state with the Weather Plus Addon.  I'd hope there will be an announcement when it does come "back online." But until then, it's in a twilight state until that alternate API for weather is selected and the code modified to support it.

It will not be resolved on Yahoo. If I recall correctly from the addons list, he is working on incorporating some other weather API, and intends to release a new version.

Please follow Rui's advice (which was, basically, don't uninstall; just wait for the new version).

One thing you need to start doing, and all members need to start doing, is to read through what has already been posted on a topic before adding to it.

Ten and a half hours ago, Rui Fontes already answered the precise question you've just asked, again, and in this very topic.  See message #85016.

I am at wit's end at this basic courtesy, and that's what it is, not routinely being followed.

Re: Problem with Weather Plus Addon

 

Ron,

This has already been discussed, today, on the topic I retitled, "Problem with Weather Plus Addon."

It's an issue with Yahoo, and it may or may not be resolved.

I ask you, and all members, to please review existing topics, all of them, that are active in the group before posting new ones on the same issue on the same day.  It's completely unnecessary, and it is up to the members to actually read through what has been offered, first.

Problem with Weather Plus Addon

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

The wonderful add on from Adriano no longer works. I have over 100 cities set up: one as a permanent default and the others as temporary cities.  Something must have changed with Yahoo because in all 100 Plus cities, I get the error message: "the lo ID is not valid."

I haven't seen anything from Adriano on the NVDA official list for months now. I am wondering if this add on is being developed anymore.

Re: Reading Desktop Icons in List View

 

If you open Desktop in File Explorer you can set the view to whatever you wish.  The only difference between Desktop and all other folders is that it has one special presentation, which is on the desktop itself.  But you can view it in File Explorer (and I very often do) and I use details view.

Hello.
This may not be the most elegant way to read your Desktop icons in a list view, but I use the Run command, Windows R, and type Desktop.
All of the icons are there, not in a grid, but in a list view as you had requested.
Thanks.

Hi


What do you mean by read desk top icons? when you arrow around on the
desk top, running applications area or notification area nvda will speak
it out what it is focused on.


If you want to see how that icon etc is spelled you can use the 1 for
previous charactor, 2 for current charactor and 3 for next charactor on
the numeric keypad.

Pressing the number 5 on the numeric key pad will say the word that is
current.

Is this what you mean?
