Re: Browse Mode single letter quick navigation shortcuts

Gene
 

While I haven’t seen the article with suggested tweaks, I doubt this problem is addressed.  I have either never or almost never seen it discussed before.  Something is interfering with the keys working with NVDA. 
 
Can you give the person another computer with a different installation of Windows?  I don’t know the technical term but it is my understanding that often in businesses and institutions, people will receive computers with exactly the same copy of Windows placed, not installed, on the hard drive.  If this is a Windows problem, if the problem exists on one computer, it may on all.  Is there a way to repair Windows that might correct it?  I’ll let others discuss such questions.  I can raise them, but I don’t have the technical knowledge to discuss them.

It will read web pages, it will follow the mouse pointer, it will follow the tab key through links. But if i press H, X, 1 or any letter it just repeats the letter pressed back to me. It makes it frustrating to jump forward for our blind student in his known web pages (eg GMail in HTML mode)

I saw, at least a year ago, a reference to a webpage that suggested making setup changes in Windows 10 to make it more NVDA friendly. I can no longer find that reference or the page. I'm sure it had a list of about 10 settings/registry changes/services that could be tweaked. We were still running Windows server 2012 at that time, and NVDA was behaving well. It has never worked correctly on this desktop.

Hello!


If you press Escape, after that the keys work as expected?


Other possibility, press NVDA+Spacebar and try the keys...

Hi Brian,

Going 64 bit is really benefitial for certain types of software, for example file compression software, antiviruses etc that use lots of memory and CPU cycles.  I will get around to nuking 64 bit reader, but I wish it had worked especially since Quentin on this list earlier had said he had no issues.

In the early days of 64 bit Firefox, I don’t recall hearing about performance problems with the browser, but there were not many 64 bit add-ons so switching meant that you were losing one of the important reasons a lot of people used Firefox.

Hi Brian,

I very much went against this advice, and installed 64 bit versions of file compression, format conversion, and office software etc.Even browsers, I was one of the early upgraders to Firefox 64 bit. Until Reader 64 bit, I had no issues whatsoever with 64 bit software.  Nor did I see any advice with Mozilla, Microsoft etc against choosing a 64 bit version.

Gene,

You've somehow overlooked or misread the table on that page.  32-bit software remains supported under all 64-bit versions of Windows, including Windows 11.  And the table for the 32-bit version of Acrobat Reader states it runs under:

Windows 11 (64 bit), Windows 10 (32 bit and 64 bit) version 1809 or later, Windows 8, 8.1 (32 bit and 64 bit), Windows 7 SP1 (32 bit and 64 bit), or Windows Server - 2008 R2 (64 bit), 2012 (64 bit), 2012 R2 (64 bit), 2016 (64 bit), or 2019 (64 bit)

Windows 10 is the final version of Windows that has an actual 32-bit version of the Windows operating system, but that's a separate issue.  Most of us are running Windows 10 64-bit unless we have very old hardware, and most will still have been using the 32-bit versions of Acrobat Reader, Microsoft Office, and a number of other pieces of software that still "prefer" (for lack of a better way of putting it) to install their 32-bit versions by default and only use 64-bit when explicitly chosen.

It's still pretty much "the general advice" among techs that if a piece of software "has some age on it" and there exist both 32 and 64-bit versions, to install the 32-bit versions for a more trouble-free experience.  I fully expect that this is going to change in the years after Windows 11 becomes common as there will be no reason to focus on maintaining 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and 64-bit will definitely win out as time marches on.

Downgrading, I don't believe...

But, you can remove the 64-bit version and install the 32-bit version.


It gaves always an error when starting, but it works...

Hi,

It does persist after running the tool.

Not when first turned on.  Nothing has changed on screen and a new screen hasn’t been ;presented.  If you justturn it on, it does nothing.

My only disagreement with Steve’s description is that when you set the JAWS screen echo to “all” it does not automatically speak the contents of the screen.

This is not particularly detailed but here is the relevant description taken from the JAWS help system:

Screen Echo

This option allows you to select what information is echoed when text on the screen changes.

  • Off: Changes to displayed text are not echoed.
  • Highlighted: Changes to highlighted text are echoed. This is the default setting.
  • All: Changes to any displayed text are echoed.

Hi Quentin,

 

Essentially, it does exactly as described earlier down the thread.

 

When you enable it, it echoes the whole screen once. Then it monitors for changes and echoes them.

 

This is very useful for accessibility testing. It’s probably not a mainstream feature that everyone could use, but it would be helpful to have it.

 

All the best


Steve

Perhaps what would be helpful here would be for someone familiar with the Jaws feature, to please describe how it works for the user?  Ok, so I'm a user, I have a program which doesn't seem to be accessible, I launch this feature.... what does it do?

 

With a number of features, it may be that there is a solution to a problem, and it may or may not be identical to the way Jaws does it, and I think sometimes we get stuck on "this is what Jaws does, I want it to work the same", rather than "this is the problem I'm trying to solve, is there a solution"?

There are multitudes of things that could, potentially, be implemented but that are not because the need for same is so infrequent and/or other things have higher priority.  I say that not as a criticism of you, but in reaction to an observation that's often repeated that has the underlying belief that because someone, somewhere, once in a blue moon might be able to use a feature that it should be implemented.  That's not always the case.

And in an instance such as this one, it makes way more sense to pursue accessibility improvements through the developers of the apps, rather than having the screen reader(s) workaround what is clearly bad to non-existent accessibility in the software design itself.

Re: Equivalent to Jaw's Screen Echo

Gene
 

This comment is based on my recollection and my experimentation now with a very old version of JAWS.  I haven’t used JAWS for a long time and I haven’t updated  it.  This needs to be checked or confirmed as the current behavior. 
 
The description isn’t completely accurate.  I can cause either all or most of the screen to be automatically echoed at times and at other times, only new or changed text is echoed.  I don’t know just when either happens.

Re: Equivalent to Jaw's Screen Echo

David Goldfield
 

Thanks for confirming this, Steve.

It’s one of those nice to have features but, for me, it is not essential. I occasionally use it for apps which frequently update the screen, such as when I copy a large number of files from one folder to another or when installing a piece of software where I want to automatically hear all of the changes which are taking place. Having all screen changes announced during such events is convenient but, again, not essential, at least for me. With NVDA I can always just use its review cursor to manually review screen updates. For most situations most of the time I never need to rely on it but someone else’s use case might dictate otherwise.

For those individuals I would say that filing this as a feature request in NVDA’s Github would be appropriate.
