Re: Question about using the elements list on a page with a large quantity of information

 

And I just tested out the page Giles offered (for which I thank you) on my machine, an HP Envy 15 TS laptop with an i7-4700MQ processor, 16GB RAM, and an SSD, and it took NVDA about 8 seconds to present the Elements List for that page.  That's a definitely noticeable pause between hitting INS+F7 and the resulting dialog being presented.

So, it does appear that it takes a few seconds for NVDA to do the work of constructing the elements list on pages that have far higher than typical numbers of elements on them.  And I imagine the length of time will be at least somewhat dependent on the processing power of your machine and the amount of RAM you have more so than the drive type, though even that has the potential to factor in.

Community Add-Ons: Compatibility Status Page with NVDA 2021.1 - Please Consult It First #adminnotice

 

Joseph Lee very kindly made the readership aware of this page on June 1, 2021.  Here is a repeat of his message:
----
Hello NVDA users,
 
Many of you are wondering about whether or not your favorite NVDA add-ons will be ready for NVDA 2021.1. To answer this question, the add-ons community has prepared a status page listing add-ons hosted on community add-ons website and their NVDA 2021.1 compatibility status:
 
 
Note that things can change without notice, and the page does not include newly added add-ons; add-ons added to community add-ons website in recent days will be included in the status page soon. Also, I have asked the add-ons community to update this document from time to time whenever backwards incompatible NVDA version enters beta testing phase (I myself will contribute to this document if my add-ons do become compatible with future NVDA releases; I might not be able to update add-ons in a timely manner while taking graduate courses).
 
As always, feedback about add-ons should be sent to add-on authors.
 
Thanks.
----

And I previously noted, on June 8th:

If the add-on you have a question about is not part of the community add-ons page, but is maintained by a third-party, whether that's a company or individual, please direct questions regarding compatibility of these add-ons with NVDA 2021.1 to their respective maintainers.  They are the only sources who can give you accurate information about their update/maintenance plans for these add-ons.

If you have information about a third-party or "home grown" add-on being released in a version that is compatible with NVDA 2020.1 after having actually received confirmation of this from its developer, please feel free to share.  Also, if a developer tells you a compatible version will not be released, this is useful information for the readership to have.  But please consult the above noted page for the compatibility status of Community Add-Ons.

Re: Question about using the elements list on a page with a large quantity of information

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi Louise,

yes, I have seen this sort of behaviour. One of the websites that has links to audio-described movies, https://jeff.tdrealms.com/Described_Movies.md has 4412 links. If you use NVDA+F7 to open up the list of links, it remains quiet on my fairly-quick laptop for about 10 seconds while it generates the list.

There are, on average, around 150 movies beginning with each letter of the alphabet, hence the large number of items.

I am only giving the web address, given the backlash when I didn't include it regarding my Sainsbury's website post earlier, so that others can check it out if it needs verifying. I am not expressing an opinion on whether audio-described movies should be downloaded. And, as with most things, other audio-described movie websites are available ;)

I'm using NVDA 2020.4 on Windows 10, and using Firefox 89.0.1.

Re: Websites that determine where NVDA starts at

You should be able to solve the problem by causing the page you want to work with to open in a new window.  For example, when you are using search, write the search item and instead of pressing enter, press shift enter.  That opens the results page in a new window.  When you have finished working with it, close the new window with alt f4.  You are now back on the page where you were and you should be in exactly the same place you were because the page has been opened all the time in another window and you did nothing to change your position.
 
I can’t test that here because I don’t see the banner, looking at the page from the United states, but whatever the cause, this method should work around the problem.

I think it is exactly what Chris says, the EU's GDPR banner seizing focus. If I search for an item and then add it to my basket, then go back to the main Groceries page, the focus jumps to the GDPR banner about cookies, which appears right at the bottom of the page.

As I say, it's not a major hastle to jump back to the top of the page or to press shift+e to jump to the previous search field, it's just an annoyance to be taken down to that cookie banner every time I have to go back to that page.

Hi since I updated to the latest NVDA version, some add-ons are incompatable, one of the them is the NVDA remote.
Is there any other new add-on available and from where I can get it please?
Thanks in advance

Well dodgy net connections could be this issue.
Overloaded lines etc.
Even though I have fibre, these days especially the net is really used.
Sometimes my echo responces take 20 seconds to come accross.

I have had a few things like that.
I am still getting the data at the right speed but its all from outside.
I suspect because of covid among other things the international

So much of the net depends on cloud infrastructure well.
If thats not the case either of you could be using wrong channels for
wireless.
You can get an idea of what everyone uses with something like
wifiinfoview from nersoft.
You will have to change your channels on your router yourself, they
are all different.
Then there is the placement of wireless hardware.
I have laptops and so do others I remote for.
Laptops are fine, but if you have a desktop and use a standard
internal card, depending where the unit is or even where the card is
you can get poor quality.
On a desktop I used the unit was close but under a desk under the user
the wireless card was at the bottem of the case and that was enough to
really play havoc with audio.
The user changed to a usb dongle placed on top of the same unit and
there was no issue after that.
If you do not use fibre, the same thing could apply with cable.
If you still use copper then they are not as strong as fibre, I used
to get noisy lines and broken connections needing someone to fix more
often than I would care for.
When I got the latest one 2 years back the isp simply switched me to
fibre and I got a better plan and that be it.
If you happen to use mobile wireless broadband signals and congestion

Hi, Quentin

 

Thanks for taking a look and pointing me in the right direction. The issue you mentioned doesn’t seem to be the same as it looks as though it involves back-translation so I’ve created a new one – if I’ve done things correctly! 😊

 

Thanks again

NVDA uses LibLouis for its braille tables.  I did find this issue on the LIbLous GitHub page mentioning plus signs in the UK tables.  The issue is open and I'm not 100% clear if the issue is the same as yours, but it might be worth you commenting on it to ensure the problem is documented or clarified: https://github.com/liblouis/liblouis/issues/972

 

If you're not familiar with GitHub, it is a website where open source projects like NVDA and LibLouis can store their code, track issues (which might be bugs, such as this one, or suggestions for new features), and where people can submit ideas or code updates.

 

NVDA also has a GitHub repository, and you can find our issues here: https://github.com/liblouis/liblouis/issues/972

Re: NVDA Remote - Frequent disconnects and freezing

 

What about your friend?

Is he direct to?

To test connection.

https://install.speedtest.net/app/cli/ookla-speedtest-1.0.0-win64.zip

or

https://install.speedtest.net/app/cli/ookla-speedtest-1.0.0-win32.zip


Extract the file, and from a command prompt do the following.

1. navigate to the directory your speedtest is in this is usually my downloads folder.

Command prompt usually starts in your user folder so cd .\downloads

then type

speedtest -p n

where p is progress output and n is none.

Final download and upload speed should be the same as your net connection is.

So for example mine is a 25mmb up and 100mb plan down so 100-104-108mb down by between 19.00-20.00 if on wireless to 25.00 up.

Your jitter and latency time should be low and your packet loss should be 0.

If you are rural you may only have 20mb down 10 mb up or if in a really remote location between 5-3-1mb down and anything from 0.7mb up to 3 or so up maybe.

Your friend needs to do the same.

Does this happen with anything else.

If you have fibre this should all work.

If its outside like some of my stuff is then there isn't much you can do about fixing it.

I was working with a friend in Kentucky and we worked for over three hours because it kept disconnecting.Sometimes it would freeze if I stopped to speak to the client about something. I say freeze because it did not give the disconnect tone but I still could not do anything from my end but the client still had access.

Re: Websites that determine where NVDA starts at

Does the Frontier Airlines sit'e do this? I spent a bit of time yesterday trying to figure out why that site behaves so badly on a Mac with Safari. Though I have to say it worked much better with Firefox on the Mac which is weird since 6 months ago one could not use Firefox with Voiceover.

Hi all, I apologise for the rather clunky and undescriptive subject line!

I have found several websites shift the NVDA cursor to the website's privacy settings link when the page loads. I experience this most with the Sainsbury's supermarket website.  after I have searched for an item and added it to my basket, when I return to the search page, NVDA gets repositioned to the Heding 3 that is We value your privacy, which is right at the bottom of the webpage, with only the Cookie Settings links below it. Of course it's easy to press CTRL+Home to jump straight back up to the top of the webpage, but I find it a pain when I have to do it thirty times during the course of doing my weekly shop.

I can't remember off the top of my head, which other websites have this behaviour, but it is quite a few. Simple question ... is there any way to stop a website from doing this to NVDA, or any NVDA setting that can stop this happening?

I am using NVDA 2020.4 and it is happening with Firefox 89.0.1 and also in Chrome.

Thanks,

Question about using the elements list on a page with a large quantity of information

Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  I was trying to browse through the list of authors under W on Project Gutenburg using the NVDA 2020.4 elements list, and it didn’t announce that it was open.  I don’t know if this is because it was trying to process a large quantity of information.  This might happen on other websites, so the subject line wasn’t specific to 1 website.  I googled Project Gutenburg, since the shortcut I had in my favourites was out-of-date.  Has anyone else come across something like this with other sites?
 
Thanks,
 
Louise


Re: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and Latest NVDA Beta?

 

Well I tried adobe reader 64 bit and access wize, forget it.


The program sure that works.

Open a file and it will load then close itself.

I went back to standard 32 bit and it works.

One thing to note, if you don't want bogged down systems there are syncing things that activate if you sign in.

I don't think there is any extras you gain with the free version unless you want to convert online and there are ways getting round that.

Saying all that, adobe acrobat will actually do a good job of reading properly structured web content inside pdfs so if they are done right actual web pages will be loaded for you to brouse as normal inside the reader which can actually be cool.

Chris,

Then the question becomes:  Is anything misbehaving from a functional standpoint for you, the end user, with NVDA or Acrobat Reader DC?

There are errors that are critical, and errors that are not.  I've had many occasions with betas where a cycle of retries, in very rapid succession, produces exactly what you're experiencing now.  But whatever the error is must not be critical, because I can continue along just like nothing happened.  Remember that the beta software is "much more vocal" about signaling these sorts of errors than released software is.  You might be able to fire up 2020.4, and check your log, and find precisely the same batch of errors.  Errors have to rise to a certain level of criticality before the production releases will report them to a user.  The beta versions will give you a signal for each and every error logged, regardless of its level of criticality.

But what's been shared is likely to get a couple of sets of review and the issue addressed if need be.

If this is happening on a lot of sites, it may be the EU’s GDPR cookie consent banner, where you have to either accept or reject cookies to be placed onto your browser, this is for all sites for countries in the EU, including the UK still

 

And it may be that this banner is taking focus after the browser refreshes

 

 

Other than that it appears that the Sainsburys website is working a it should
