Re: NVDA sometimes crashes when using edit boxes in INTERNET

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

I do not recall experiencing this more recently, but at least until a
couple months ago, I frequently encountered situations where NVDA
would choke up and go quiet whenever I went into focus mode on an edit
box in Microsoft Edge. (This was unique to Edge and did not occur in
Firefox in my case.) The only remedy was to launch Narrator, wait for
a while for NVDA to begin speaking or press Ctrl+Alt+N, and then try
interacting with that edit box again confronted by the same
non-trivial probability of NVDA freezing when entering the edit field.
I will revert with further details should I experience this again in
the near future.

Thanks.

nvda global commands extension

Marisane Moruthanyana
 

Hi nvda tech gurus

I hope you are well.

I am trying my best.

I have found this wonderful addon for nvda called nvda global commands
extension.

It is nearly the same as JAWS command for activating system tray,
taskbar window, etc.

It can also echo copy, cut and paste commands.

One thing that I think it still needs to do is emulating the append command.

I think that command is very important and needs to be added to the
list of commands already packaged with the addon.

Is there any plans about that soon?

Shedding light on that is appreciated in advance.

God bless
Marisane


Re: I Can't Find The Menu bar On Microsoft Edge

you won't find a favorites menu either.. With alt key or alt+f will bring up a menu. That is a long menu and everything is in there.

I’m not sure what is causing the problem.  Try holding alt and typing f, then releasing both keys.  If that doesn’t help, I’m not sure what to suggest.  You might be able to repair the program, but I haven’t looked into how to do that.  Let us know if alt f works or not and I will try to find information on repairing Edge, unless someone already has.

Dear all,

Although this is sent as a response to Brian, this e-mail intents to
thank allof you who helped me, with apologies for thedelay, I have been
sick lastly.

The diagnostic made by Lukasz (I think) was correct. I did havethe buggy
version of Windows and for some reason the update had been interrupted.
It has now been completed with sighted help and the latest NVDA
installed. I am still with the e-speach voicesynthesis but at least I am
in a position from where I should be able to progress by myself.

Thanks again and all the best to everybody,

Sébastien.

Hi Abdul.


Selecting your NVDA version in the combo box "Compatible up to NVDA version" didn't do the trick? Database should only output add-ons that are compatible with that version and beyond. Something like this: https://nvda-addons.org/?namesum=&channel=&minimum=&lasttested=2021.1&orderby=

I think what is seen here is awesome. It would be nice, once someone has uploaded new add-ons to see a Recently added section, so we can know what is new. This section might include updated versions of current add-ons too. Just a thought I had. Great job, on the whole for what has been made thus far!

Dňa 7. 8. 2021 o 0:11 Iván Novegil via groups.io napísal(a):

Dear NVDA users across the world,

 

I'm pleased to announce to you the availability of the final version of NVDA-addons.org, the first website created to serve as an international directory for both official and unofficial NVDA add-ons.

Indeed, this project aims to gather the download links of all possible add-ons, within logical standards of usability. You won't have to search in Google anymore to, at the end, find an outdated version uploaded to Dropbox, or ask through your preferred mailing list until someone is able to rescue and send you as an attachment that add-on that is distributed from mailbox to mailbox for years. In NVDA_addons.org, your favourite add-on may be hosted by Dropbox, but we, both users and administrators, will make our best to guarantee you its most updated release. Moreover, you'll be able to know before downloading any add-on its exact compatibility range and development status.

The platform has been self-developed by us and has the following features:

  • Table of add-ons on the home page: As simple as typing NVDA-addons.org in your preferred web browser. Last updated add-ons are shown at the top and official add-ons, those published at add-ons.nvda-project.org, are flagged as "verified".
  • Filters: You can filter add-on table by add-on's name, summary, release channel, minimum NVDA version and last tested NVDA version.
  • Paginator: Browse the add-on table 50 by 50.
  • Dedicated page for each add-on: See its author, website, description and available downloads, with supported NVDA version range for each of them.
  • Direct download both from home page and add-on page.
  • Supported by advancedAddonFiles: The directory already contains all the add-ons added to the Spanish-speaking NVDA Community website, NVDA.es. This is because NVDA-addons.org is only an interface for advancedAddonFiles, the application that manages add-on additions and updates.
  • Automatic translator in all pages, powered by Google.
  • top 10 downloaded add-ons: All pages include a widget showing the 10 most downloaded add-on releases along with their last tested NVDA version.
  • Newsletter: With our newsletter, you'll get a digest of updated and added add-ons each week, and also special notices and information about review requests. Subscribe by sending a blank message to news+subscribe@.... This is also displayed as a widget in all pages.
  • Donate: We'd prefer not to ask for donations, but the Spanish-speaking NVDA Community Association, stablished in Spain as a legal nonprofit, survives thanks to them. Maintaining NVDA-addons.org is only one of our initiatives. You can donate through PayPal, credit/debit card and GitHub Sponsors, using the widget at the bottom of each page.
  • Direct contact: We are human and willing to help. Send us your thoughts, questions and suggestions to admin@....

How can you collaborate?

  1. Adding new add-ons: You can submit a review request for one add-on that is not registered. It doesn't matter if you are its author or not. Once we've verified it doesn't contain spam, it'll be published to receive public comments regarding add-on usability and security. In absence of them, or after they've been resolved, the add-on will be added to the database. If you've specified your email, you'll be given direct access to update that add-on. You can also submit a review request for already registered add-ons to discuss usability or security issues.
  2. Letting us know of add-on updates: If you find an outdated add-on in our database, don't hesitate to reach us at admin@... with all the information you have about the new version. We'll happy to publish that new version, provieded that it's from the same author or we have reasonable evidences of abandonment from that maintainer and a new one continues the development.

What happens if you have an interested friend who doesn't know English? That's, in fact, the idea behind the translate widget. Just choose your native language and enjoy. We know that no translation can match a human translation, but this is our easiest and simplest solution to have NVDA-addons.org internationalized. If you want to export our catalog to your local NVDA website, don't forget that it's available in JSON format at https://nvda-addons.org/files/get.php?addonslist

On the other hand, don't worry to write us a message in another language. We'll make our best to reply you.

What is coming next? We're now announcing the first version of the website but can't wait to think about the future. Héctor Benítez has developed an add-ons store prototype for NVDA-addons.org, which will be enhanced until it gets to a stable version that we all can use to review the catalog and download the add-ons we want from NVDA directly. You can download the prototype, in spanish, from: https://nvda-addons.org/files/get.php?file=tienda

 

I really hope this new tool is useful for you and every NVDA user you know. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Best regards.

What browser is being used? 
 
Also, is the problem that when NVDA runs again, it doesn’t display the page properly, perhaps not providing access to Browse Mode?  Since you don’t explain the actual details of the problem, we don’t know what is happening.
