Re: Netflix app for Windows 10 and NVDA

Lino Morales
 

Yes their is a WPA for Netflix. I use it all the time. I use it with Narrator however. NVDA seems to do OK reading the HTML headings etc. but to me it seems slow navagating the app.

The last time I used the web version it is very accessible along with the app on the phone and I think it was the same on my tv.

If there is a app for windows 10 I have not used it.

Lately I use a google smart speaker with a chrome cast to watch netflix and another page that tells me all the shows that are audio described for me to browse through. Not sure for sub titles but from what I hear there is a lot out on there platform but may be not for some languages.

The following should help.


How to turn the closed captioning or subtitles on or off when viewing Netflix content.
1. Launch the Netflix app.
2. Select a TV show or movie.
3. Select Audio & Subtitles from the options panel.
4. Select your preferred audio or subtitle options.
5. Press Back to return to the options panel.
6. Select Play.


Hope it helps.

There is not.  This topic is now locked.

Whatever is being previewed on the 24th of June, whatever it might be called, is nothing more than what has been slated as the fall update to Windows 10, code named Sky Lake. 

It's just the next in Windows As A Service releases. The world is not about to change.

Heads up for Windows 10 App Essentials development snapshot users: June 17th build to require absolute latest Windows Insider Preview and NVDA 2021.1 beta or later

 

Hi all,

The following notice is applicable if you are using Windows 10 App Essentials add-on development snapshots:

By now folks should have heard about Windows Sun Valley (supposedly “Windows 11”, according to sources and a leaked build), a project to bring user interface changes to make it more modern, according to Microsoft. Sun Valley will be an important part of an upcoming event scheduled for June 24, 2021, and Windows Insiders, tech press journalists, and developers will talk about a supposed new Windows version for days. Because “Windows 11” branding may not be the final name for this version of Windows, I’ll refer to this new Windows as “Sun Valley”.

It turns out there are changes that will affect NVDA users, according to tests done on the latest public build (build 21390, not the leaked build). For starters, the Sun Valley update will change how you interact with emoji panel and clipboard history. There may be others, subject to confirmation after June 24th. I am keeping a very close eye on impact of next week’s event for NVDA users, and I’m sure several NVDA contributors are also observing this series of events closely.

To give you a taste as to what to expect from Sun Valley, I’ll be releasing a development build of Windows 10 App Essentials on June 17, 2021. This add-on build will require absolutely latest Windows Insider Preview dev channel build – build 21390 - to install and function. Also, to really make sure only folks who are adventurous and would like to give early feedback can install this build, this development build will require NVDA 2021.1 beta or latest alpha build to work. In other words, only Windows Insiders who are also beta testing NVDA will get this build – others will be greeted to an error message during add-on installation, telling you that the add-on is not compatible with the version of Windows you are using (Add-on Updater), require Sun Valley (manual installation), or not compatible with the version of NVDA you’ve got (if using 2020.4 or earlier). For the next week or so, additional development builds will be released that will require latest Windows Insider Preview and latest NVDA beta/alpha releases, and sometime in July, I’ll let users of older Windows 10 and/or NVDA install development builds again.

As for add-on naming, Sun Valley is still based on Windows 10 internally, hence it will still be called Windows 10 App Essentials. If the supposed “Windows 11” branding is confirmed next week, I’ll think about renaming this add-on, with details to follow later.

If you have questions, comments or feedback about upcoming Windows 10 App Essentials Sun Valley dev builds, please contact me directly (not on the list please) via usual channels (email, Twitter, etc.).

Cheers,

Joseph

locked (OT): Welcome to Windows-access and Windows mailing lists

Akash Kakkar
 

Dear all,
As we all eagerly wait for the release of new Windows OS (most
probably #Windows11) I would like to invite you all to windows-access
mailing list.
To explain more about this, I'll be running 2 mailing lists related to
Windows. 1 is called "windows-access" and another is "windows".
Windows-access is there for any discussion regarding which includes
Windows OS and it's accessibility including screen reader
compattibility, applications and all.
Second mailing list: "windows" is a generalised mailing list which can
be joined by anyone no matter he/she is sighted/blind and it allows
any discussion revolving around Windows.
If you specificly want to talk about the accessibility of Windows OS
and don't want to mingle up with the conversation of non-accessibility
conversations, then you can join exclusive windows-access mailing list
via:
windows-access+subscribe@groups.io
and to post to this list:
windows-access@groups.io
Otherwise you can join generalised windows mailing list which is there
for everyone:
windows+subscribe@groups.io
Send a mail to post to this list:
windows@groups.io
welcome you all in the both groups in advance.
with regards,
Akash

I doubt there is a need for another Windows list, whomever it is targeted at.  Aside from that, I don’t think it’s a good idea to set up another blind Windows list.  There is already a Windows 10 list that I believe is owned or moderated by Joseph Lee.  I expect that that list will include discussion of Windows 11.  I wouldn’t be surprised if its name changes as Windows 11 comes closer to release.  It isn’t a good idea to fragment users among redundant lists unless there is some problem with an important list and another would be beneficial and not just duplicate content or have inferior content because so many knowledgeable members are on the first list and not on the second.
