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

William
 

I know some website intended to prevent people from scraping their data, they intended not to make those data to be put in a proper table.

Besides, I also seeing some website simply just use spaces to make data visually like arranged in a table.


Encountering these data really feel annoying.

Unfortunately, as I thought about it, I realized the support screen layout option in NVDA wouldn’t work.  The screen layout probably is the same as a table, but without code that lets a screen-reader work with it.  So you must read by line and see everything on the line you move to.
 
Is there a possibility that NVDA could have a feature where you set a start point and an end point and only have what is between those points read as you move up and down by line? 
If so, I could set a start and end point so that each line I moved to would only have the third item from the left announced, for example.  And if something like a book appears on  screen in columns, I could set the start and end point to read one column.
This may not be possible in Windows.  This isn’t my idea, it was done decades ago in a DOS screen-reader, ASAP.  If it could be done in Windows screen-readers, it probably would have been but I don’t want to assume.

Hi Robert,
Thank you for the idea. I've tried that but it doesn't work, likely because the table isn't an actual HTML table and thus NVDA can't  traverse it as such. Thanks again.

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.

Hello again,

It’s a credit to nvda that these issues are dealt with promptly and that you also give an explanation.

Lets hope other screen reader providers learn the lesson.

Many thanks,

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

The issue is because our security provider updated their certificate, but it doesn't automatically propagate to everyone.  The number of messages I've seen about it leads me to think that actually most users DO have the updated Windows certificates, but for whatever reason, not everyone does, and it is not one set of users - eg it's not related to a specific version of Windows.

 

Another fix for this is an add-on which was made by Mazen428 on GitHub: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/files/7269883/NvdaCertPatch.zip  It does show an error message, but it fixes the problem and automatically uninstalls itself.

 

We've put in a fix in alpha builds which will be in NVDA 2021.3 and later to endeavour to stop this from happening again in the future, but users affected now will need to implement one of the fixes now as well.

Re: Thunderbird

Blake Roberts <BEarlRoberts@...>
 

My previous message in this thread provides a workaround for the problem presented (link to download Mozilla Apps Enhancements NVDA add-on). With the Mozilla add-on installed in NVDA, go to your Thunderbird message folder of choice. Press NVDAKey+H and rearrange message field columns there.

The issue of 0 announcements is caused by Thunderbird, not NVDA. I suggest that anyone in the NVDA group with Thunderbird-specific questions consider joining the Thunderbird group:
https://groups.io/g/thunderbird

The primary/intended audience is screen reader users. Thunderbird group email addresses are on that group's home page under "Group Email Addresses" heading including this one:

Re: Thunderbird

Blake Roberts <BEarlRoberts@...>
 

This TB issue appears to affect quite a few people. Two individuals have asked similar question in the Thunderbird group on groups.io during my membership there. The solution is installing Mozilla Apps Enhancements NVDA add-on:
https://nvda-addons.org/addon.php?id=5
Then use it to rearrange Thunderbird column headers. By columns I mean things such as to, from, subject, junkmail status... The 0 and 100 numbers beside messages are due to Thunderbird junkmail filtering. As I wrote in a recent Thunderbird group thread, my preference is to move the junk column from default location to next to last column. That way I hear "0" before the date/time stamp.

Re: trouble with speech when selecting text

Quentin Christensen
 

The usual questions:

Have you restarted the PC recently (and especially since updating NVDA or anything else)?

Are you using any add-ons? If so, does restarting NVDA with them disabled make a difference?

What programs are you experiencing this in? If word etc, have you changed the advanced setting for using UIA?

I tried just now with NVDA 2021.2 and it behaves as expected in office 365 word and notepad (reading the newly selected text).

Hi, I'm not sure when this behavior started, but when I select text by pressing shift plus the arrow keys, NVDA will read out all of the slected content instead of each character I'm selecting, which is very confusing for me. Is there a way to have NVDA just read out the character I've just selected instead of everything that has been selected?
Thank you

You need to give something more here.  You just print a PDF from any PDF reader or editor.  It doesn't matter one bit if it is an image scanned origin PDF or one that was created as a PDF to begin with.

NVDA+Control+R, in a selected file in File Explorer, makes OCR to the file.

NVDA+Control+shift+R scans a paper document from the scanner...

Hello everyone,

 

I do not know if this is a question better suited for the chat subgroup, if it is, please tell me.

 

If it’s ok to post it here, however, here it goes: if you use any kind of OCR solution that can open and OCR PDFS and acquire images from scanners, what would you recommend for efficient use with NvDA?

 

If that OCR had the ability to keep the formatting and layout of the document, that would be a much needed extra.

 

Thanks for any answer.

Best regards.

Francisco.
