Hi Tim. Thanks for clarifying that Code::Block isn’t accessible. I needed to know specifically about Code::Block – its saved me a lot of time and effort. Yes, I’m aware of the differences between those two. Paul

NVDARemote (iOS/iPadOS, Free) 1.0 released

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi guys


I got a message in my inbox yesterday to say the following app now has gone to version 1.0

This is for a apple device.


NVDARemote (iOS/iPadOS, Free)

NVDARemote is an app to remote control a NVDA screen reader. This app is the client software, you have to setup a separate NVDARemote server in your network.
To use this app, you’ll need an external keyboard. After the connection is established, all inputs made on the external keyboard will be forwarded to the NVDARemote server, including the special keys Strg, Alt, Windows, Esc, F1–12 and so on.
Current Version: 1.0 (July 12, 2021)

The link to the page where you can get the app from is https://apps.apple.com/us/app/nvdaremote/id1560008403?ign-mpt=uo%3D4


Even though this email is for the the first app there may be some of you that I know will ask is there a version for android.


Controlling your NVDA screen reader remotely via an Android smart phone app
If you are an Android user you can download an app so that you can use NVDA remotely.
Narwhal, short for Nonvisual Android Remote Windows Handy Access for all, is an NVDA remote Android client, allowing you to control your Windows pc from wherever you are. Since NVDA Remote is a screen reader addon without image support, this app can only be used by visually impaired persons familiar with this technology. Find out more about NVDA Remote at NVDARemote.com

To find out more about this app or to download it to your Android phone, please go to the following web page at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=im.vortex.narwall&hl=en&gl=US


The mods would like this not to go on for heaps of messages. if there is some one that can give directions off list to set either the apple version up or the android one can you let us know and I can put the directions onto a web page on what to do.

If you ran xp then win7 windows 10 is no problem.

The only big difference is you now have support. There is 2 places for settings, the control panel and settings windows.

you do the same because its windows.

A)  There is no 2021.4.

B)  There is a reason that NVDA 2021.1 is called a backward compatibility breaking/severing release.

C)  Most, if not all add-ons, compatible with 2021.1 will NOT work with 2020.4 or earlier.

D)  NVDA 2021.1 is now the current release, and NVDA only supports one release - the current one.

Hi Ibrahim

I don’t think you will have any problems with Windows 10, it is very similar to Windows 7.  The Desktop is justthe the same, there is a slight difference to the way you access the start menu and many of the Control Panel features have been incorporated into a Settings App, although the Control Panel is still around for some features.  At the User level each has Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Pictures and Videos folders amongst others and programs are launched in the same ways as they ever were.  I have forgotten what was in Windows 7, so I can’t say much about what is new in Windows 10 but it does have built-in Mail, Calendar  and ToDo Apps which I can’t recall being in Windows 7.

 

I upgraded from 7 to 10 about 3 years ago, I liked Windows 7 and I like Windows 10 just as much.

 

Cheers

Chris

I cannot answser all your questions.

First, there are some differences, yes.

They are really not that significant.

The desktop is much the same, my computer is called
“this pc”.

The start menu is changed some.

If you want to searchfor something, press the windows or start key and  enter your search.

Arrow down through the results and enter on  your choice.

There are some more  windows shortcut keys, like “windows key plus I” for settings.

Just jump right in,  it’s alright.

There is a group for win 10 it is called winaccess;

Re: object enhancer addon

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


Thanks to Rui if you install this add on into NVDA it will now come up in English


It also installs into NVDA 2021.1


The link to the drop box account where you can download it and try it out can be found at https://www.dropbox.com/s/dqnooxmas5utw70/objEnhancer_2019.2beta1_Gen.nvda-addon?dl=0



I think the other language is in Dutch so there would be no other translations.



To see how to use it after it is installed read the add on help section.

Hi


For a work around to use this add on I thought there would be a few people that speak english that would like to try it but it comes up in dutch when installed. I do not know what to do to make it come up in English so done the below work around and or pointed to the add on and english documentation in my drop box account.

If some one knows how to do it please do when it get installed it comes up in English.


*Object enhancer add on for NVDA

Object Enhancer
• Author: Babbage B.V. info@...
Object Enhancer allows you to change how NVDA announces objects on the screen using an intuitive interface. It can be used to change the label of an object, but depending on how you’re using it, has functionality to change basically any property of an object.
Changes to an object are saved in a definition. A definition contains:
• Criteria that have to apply in order for the definition to match
• Attribute changes that will be applied to every object that matches the definition
• Optional relationships with other definitions. A definition can inherrit criteria from other

You can obtain a copy of it for NVDA 2021.1 from my drop box account at https://www.dropbox.com/s/wld98w3bv5s2l9i/object%20enhancer.zip?dl=1

The add on is in Dutch and if you do the following on the installed version of NVDA you can have it in English. Press the Windows key, then arrow to all apps, then NVDA, then NVDA user configuration, then press the Enter key. Locate the addons folder, then locate the object enhancer folder, then press the Enter key.
Locate the Doc folder, there will be 2 folders inside of it. Locate the Nl folder then copy the readme.html file. Go back one step and locate the En folder and paste it in there. It should override the other readme file. Now when you bring up the help section in the addon, the first part will be in Dutch and the rest will be English.

For a portable version do the following. If it is in the NVDA folder, locate the user configuration folder, then press the Enter key. Locate the add ons folder then press the Enter key. Locate the object enhancer folder, then press the Enter key. Locate the Doc folder, then press the Enter key. There will be 2 folders inside of it. Locate the Nl folder, then press the Enter key and copy the readme.html file. Go back one step and locate the En folder and press the Enter key and paste it in there. It should override the other readme file. Now when you bring up the help section in the add on, the first part will be in Dutch and the rest will be English.
 
*Please note

If after that has been done and you hear NVDA speaking in another language, use the NVDA key + Ctrl key + the letter V. Next, tab down until you hear NVDA say Automatic language switching (when supported) and uncheck that box. Save your settings, then open the add on help section. The first part will be in Dutch and the rest will be in English.
If you do not want to do the above, there is an English text file which you can read within the zip file.

To be quite honest, we forgot that we had this add-on made. My own boss asked me the other day to look into a functionality to label objects in NVDA as they can do in JAWS, turns out we already had something on the table :).

I'll give it some love where needed, since it would be tremendously useful for our own work as well. If anyone has a pull-request that it wants to push then I will look into it.

Is Code::Block Accessible?

Can anyone tell me if Code::Blocks is accessible with NVDA or JAWS? Preferably with a braille display.

Re: audio themes add-on? any plans?

 

There is nothing preventing anyone from sharing versions they've done workaround tweaks for if the tweak was as simple as changing the manifest file.  Talk amongst yourselves off-list.

But if you want the issue addressed, permanently (or as close as one can hope for), you must contact the add-on developer.  The NVDA Add-Ons Compatibility Page notes:

Re: How to Suspend lock screen while reading All with NVDA

 

I should also have stated that the Turn off display and Put computer to sleep settings are present under Plugged-In, as well as, On Battery.  These should also be examined and reset to your liking.

In my case, sleep is set to Never when the computer is plugged in, while it's set to 20 minutes when on battery.

Regardless of the outcome regarding any NVDA setting, Zahra is right that you still need to tweak your power settings to make your sleep when on battery power longer than one minute.

Control Panel, Power Options, Change plan settings link.  Then tweak the two dropdowns under On battery to extend the amount of time before the screen gets turned off and the computer goes to sleep.

Also consider opening Windows 10 Settings, Accounts, Sign-in Options pane, navigating to the dropdown for Require Sign-in - When you've been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?, and changing the value to Never rather than the default of When PC wakes up from sleep.  This really depends on whether it's your computer, somewhere that only you have access to it, or if it's a work computer in a cubicle where anyone could walk up and wake it from sleep.

Re: How to Suspend lock screen while reading All with NVDA

 

hello.
in power options of control panel, you can decide that on battery and
on pluge your computer does not go to sleep.
also, if you wish to read long texts by say all command,
in control panel display,
just disable screen saver.

Is
