Anyway of working with gigabyte software?

Pranav Lal
 

Hi all,

I have a Z590 AORUS ELITE AX Gigabyte motherboard.

I want to keep the bios and other software updated. Gigabyte does have
software for this but it is inaccessible. For one thing, object navigation
is the only way to navigate the program. That would not be such an issue but
when I try to activate an object, nothing happens. By activate an object, I
mean using the nvda key + numeric pad insert key.

I have also tried nvda's ocr capability but I do not get anything useful.

Anyone any ideas?
Pranav

Re: setting up new laptop

Brian's message is probably the cause of the problem.  I thought it was the expired certificate but that isn't likely.  I thought that was what you were describing when you said you couldn't download.

The standard advice to "try another browser" should always be the first thing to try on a blocked download provided it's not your own antivirus/security suite is not the one blocking it.  SmartScreen is separate from Windows Defender or third party antivirus/security.

Sometimes you have to try tow other browsers.  But if at least two Chromium-based browsers and Firefox won't download something, it probably shouldn't be downloaded.

Re: setting up new laptop

Disregard my first message.  it is probably wrong.  I evidently made an error when I was experimenting.
 
What I said is correct that browsers generally seem to add an s where needed.  But you probably have to work with the verification message before you can download.
 
Do the following.
When the message comes up, go to the bottom of the screen, control end.  You will be on an advanced button.
Activate it with the space bar.
Then once again go to the bottom of the screen.  You will be on a proceed to the name of the site button.  You will hear  that it is unsafe.  it is safe in this case. 
Activate it with the space bar.
You should now be taken to the direct download, the link you followed is a direct download link.  Download the file as you usually do.
 
As I said in my other message, you are evidently seeing the message because of a root verification certificate that expired recently.
 
GeneI just tried this with two browsers.  I’m not sure about one since I tried working with the verification message and then trying again with the browser.  But in the browser where I did notbhing, no download occurred.

The problem isn’t caused by there being no s at the end of http.  Browsers hgenerally seem to automatically add the s if it is needed these days.  The problem appears to be the root certificate that expired recently.  You are evidently getting a message that the site can’t be verified.  Ordinarily, you have to tell the browser to go to the site and the browser may tell you it is unsafe but will go there.  On some sites, it won’t.

Re: Goldwave NVDA question

 

Hi Charles,

Hmmm, what do you mean by "latest of everything"? Can you elaborate further please?

P.S. I can guess what "latest of everything" means, but I'm intentionally doing it this way because of two reasons: please prove me wrong (I'm thinking NVDA 2021.2, GoldWave 6.57, and GoldWave add-on 21.10), and this is an educational moment on communicating details to someone who might be able to resolve this and/or pass on important info to someone else. I know what I asked above may come across as not quite user-friendly, but believe me when I advise people that details do matter; unless you are the user and/or the developer can make correct guesses, I think just saying "latest of everything" can hinder community investigations. Also apologies for possibly offending someone with this approach.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Navigation similar to the “vertical navigation” voiceover feature?

You can see an example of this in the Pontes media downloader v 3.1 in the help section under shortcut keys.

Hi Joseph,
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, while the information on the page appears like a table for sighted users, it is not constructed as an HTML table so those navigation keys won’t work. I went into chrome Dev tools and manually added some aria role tags to make it behave like a table and it definitely helps, but the way they’ve arranged this thing is really strange so it’s hard to make it perfect. I might write myself a chrome extension to at least make it partially accessible. Thanks again.

Hi Josh,
Thank you for specifying the version number of Acapela for NVDA which you experience difficulty with. The version number was not evident in your original thread. I agree with you about importance of testing and using Acapela for NVDA before making a purchasing decision. I trialed the product myself several years ago prior to buying.

I can confirm that the calibri voices Acapela NVDA add-on is not currently compatible with NVDA 2021.2. But, during the trial period you can download and use the HQ (high-quality) Acapela voices. I would suggest downloading/installing HQ Rod for your first voice test, which I presently have installed as my Acapela for NVDA voice. To my knowledge, people trialing the product and/or who have purchased a premium Acapela for NVDA license can use as many high-quality voices as they desire. If you or any one else chooses to buy, I recommend buying the premium license and not the basic one. With a basic license, you can only use Acapela for NVDA calibri voices. Premium purchase allows use of both calibri and HQ voices just like during trial period. Whether one chooses to buy any product or not is of course an individual decision.

You have either downloaded the wrong version of the addon or your version of NVDA is incompatible

 

I would go back to the download page of the acapela and download the correct version for your version of NVDA

Hi folks,
imagine I’ve got a webpage open and there is information on it that is visually laid out like a table but is not traversable as a table using NVDA. I am on a column heading and I want to move focus directly below it to the first cellof that column. In iOS, there’s a rotor option called “vertical navigation” that allows me to do this easily. Is there any such functionality in NVDA? Unfortunately, the only way I’v found to get to that cell is to press control + down arrow repeatedly,traveling through all The other column headings first, making it sometimes impossible to know when I’ve actually arrived at the first item under that original column heading. I hope the description of the problem makes sense. Thank you for any tips or strategies.

Luke
