Re: Does Avaya phone system work well with NVDA and Jaws?

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Saylor,

I found a couple of posts in the group previously indicating that several users have been using Avaya for many years with success.  I haven't used it myself, and I just had a look in our issues and can't see anything reported against Avaya.

Regarding VMWare Horizon, there is an add-on called UnicornDVC which makes VMWare Horizon accessible with NVDA.  It is available from: https://access4u.eu/product/unicorndvc/

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello NVDA users,

I am reaching out because I have a question about accessibility with the Avaya Softphone system. I will begin certification for a client who I will work with on the liveops platform where I will use Avaya for the phone system and therefore I’m wondering if it is accessible with NVDA and Jaws? I will also be connecting to the client using the horizon VMWare virtual desktop and therefore wondering if NVDA works with that as well? Thanks.

Re: NVDA: Linespacing and Paragraph Indent Word 2019

Quentin Christensen
 

Do you mean when you type *** on a blank line it converts to a row of dots across the page, and when you type --- or ___ it does a line?  That is done by Word's autocorrect function - the same function will change "teh" to "the", "(e)" to a euro symbol and so on.

NVDA doesn't report those automatic changes currently.  There is an issue reporting that here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/11032  Do please add any comments to that issue with additional details.

You can change the autocorrect settings from Word's options:
Press alt+f, then t to open options
Press control+tab twice to the "Proofing" category.
Press alt+a to open the autocorrect options.

You can turn individual options on or off here, add new corrections, or disable all using the checkboxes.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello,
First, a big thanks to Quentin for answering my questions about
methodology to perform line spacing and paragraph indent. I noted your
instructive.
I have one further question on the portion where you discuss how to
hear measurement.
Will this also inform of extraneous text inserting itself into a given document?
I write fiction, and have used the capital-eight (star) to indicate
scene breaks.
I was told this added either underscores or a series of ... to text,
and my sighted partner was able to delete the unwanted.
I had not heard NVDA report these findings.
Thanks again. I receive the Digest so will look for an answer in the next issue.

Yes, that was the problem. The numlock was on. Thank you so much!

Hi


Is the num lock key off if it is on you will only hear numbers spoken.


Make sure it is off.



If when you open the about button then press the ctrl key to make him or her quite you must then use the object navigation key given before for your layout


Make sure you change into it first with the nvda key + 1 on the numeric keypad you should hear it spoken.


Mine was nvda key + 8 on the numeric keypad.

This takes me up a leve to where the text is.


Then after that you used the review cursor commands as the ones for a desk top are different to a lap top user.


Make sure you go to the top of the document then the commands to read it for your layout.

If you already know the keyboard layout miss the above step.

So if you are hopefully still on the about button in my case I would use the nvda key + 8 on the numeric keypad to go up a level or the laptop command if in that layout.

Thanks!

Hi,

Between a week to up to a year:

* A week or two: if Microsoft found no issues with the build sent to beta
and release preview Insiders (22000.28x)
* Several weeks to months: if a fix is being tested by dev channel Insiders
in build 22400 series, and if so, it will take a while for fixes to be
backported and test by beta and release preview Insiders
* Up to a year: if it is so major that it must wait until the next big
Windows 11 update (next year)

I won't go into all the work that goes on inside Microsoft to make a fix
available to everyone (as it is a bit technical and beyond the scope of this
forum), but suffice to say that it involves testing a fix with more people
in each stage: first with Windows developers themselves in combination with
automated tests run by machines, then to Windows Insiders on dev channel and
Microsoft employees, then to Insiders on beta and release preview and more
Microsoft staff, then finally to everyone.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: NVDA menu

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


The commands I gave before were for a desk top user  and if you sued object navigation before to get to where the information is the below from the user manual will give you the commands for desk top user, lap top user or touch.


If you are using a lap top layout use the commands for it.


5.5. Reviewing Text
NVDA allows you to read the contents of the screen, current document or current object by character, word or line. This is mostly useful in places (including Windows command consoles) where there is no system caret. For example, you might use it to review the text of a long information message in a dialog.
When moving the review cursor, the System caret does not follow along, so you can review text without losing your editing position. However, by default, when the System caret moves, the review cursor follows along. This can be toggled on and off.
Note: Braille following the review cursor can be configured via Braille Tether.
The following commands are available for reviewing text:
Name
Desktop key
Laptop key
Touch
Description
Move to top line in review
shift+numpad7
NVDA+control+home
none
Moves the review cursor to the top line of the text
Move to previous line in review
numpad7
NVDA+upArrow
flick up (text mode)
Moves the review cursor to the previous line of text
Report current line in review
numpad8
NVDA+shift+.
none
Announces the current line of text where the review cursor is positioned. Pressing twice spells the line. Pressing three times spells the line using character descriptions.
Move to next line in review
numpad9
NVDA+downArrow
flick down (text mode)
Move the review cursor to the next line of text
Move to bottom line in review
shift+numpad9
NVDA+control+end
none
Moves the review cursor to the bottom line of text
Move to previous word in review
numpad4
NVDA+control+leftArrow
2-finger flick left (text mode)
Moves the review cursor to the previous word in the text
Report current word in review
numpad5
NVDA+control+.
none
Announces the current word in the text where the review cursor is positioned. Pressing twice spells the word. Pressing three times spells the word using character descriptions.
Move to next word in review
numpad6
NVDA+control+rightArrow
2-finger flick right (text mode)
Move the review cursor to the next word in the text
Move to start of line in review
shift+numpad1
NVDA+home
none
Moves the review cursor to the start of the current line in the text
Move to previous character in review
numpad1
NVDA+leftArrow
flick left (text mode)
Moves the review cursor to the previous character on the current line in the text
Report current character in review
numpad2
NVDA+.
none
Announces the current character on the line of text where the review cursor is positioned. Pressing twice reports a description or example of that character. Pressing three times reports the numeric value of the character in decimal and hexadecimal.
Move to next character in review
numpad3
NVDA+rightArrow
flick right (text mode)
Move the review cursor to the next character on the current line of text
Move to end of line in review
shift+numpad3
NVDA+end
none
Moves the review cursor to the end of the current line of text
Say all with review
numpadPlus
NVDA+shift+a
3-finger flick down (text mode)
Reads from the current position of the review cursor, moving it as it goes
Select then Copy from review cursor
NVDA+f9
NVDA+f9
none
Starts the select then copy process from the current position of the review cursor. The actual action is not performed until you tell NVDA where the end of the text range is
Select then Copy to review cursor
NVDA+f10
NVDA+f10
none
On the first press, text is selected from the position previously set as start marker up to and including the review cursor's current position. If the system caret can reach the text, it will be moved to the selected text. After pressing this key stroke a second time, the text will be copied to the Windows clipboard
Move to marked start for copy in review
NVDA+shift+f9
NVDA+shift+f9
none
Moves the review cursor to the position previously set start marker for copy
Report text formatting
NVDA+shift+f
NVDA+shift+f
none
Reports the formatting of the text where the review cursor is currently situated. Pressing twice shows the information in browse mode
Report current symbol replacement
None
None
none
Speaks the symbol where the review cursor is positioned. Pressed twice, shows the symbol and the text used to speak it in browse mode.
Note: numpad keys require the Num Lock to be turned off to work properly.
A good way to remember the basic text review commands when using the Desktop layout is to think of them as being in a grid of three by three, with top to bottom being line, word and character and left to right being previous, current and next. The layout is illustrated as follows:
Previous line
Current line
Next line
Previous word
Current word
Next word
Previous character
Current character
Next character

Hi


No you do not have to listen to all of it first as long as when you open the about section it starts to read press the ctrl key.


Check which keyboard layout you are using press the nvda key + ctrl key + the letter K.


It will open the keyboard settings it should land on your keyboard layout.

 Mine speaks desktop so then you just close it


If you already know the keyboard layout miss the above step.



Make sure you are in object navigation mode first use the nvda key + number 1 on the numeric keypad to do this I am not sure what it is for the laptop version I would have to look it up I think it is the same.


So if you are hopefully still on the about button in my case I would use the nvda key + 8 on the numeric keypad to go up a level or the laptop command if in that layout.

.


Then I would use the number 7 on the numeric keypad to get me to the top of the document or in this case the about section.

The rest of the numbers used as mentioned before is how you read it the text review commands is for read only sections like this.

The easiest way if it is on the about button is when you open it in my case I use object navigation.


It will read out the information and you can not interact with it so I do the following


I am using a desk top after it has read out the information I use object navigation in this case it is the nvda key+ number 8 on the numeric keypad. It takes me up a level to where the information is.


Then I can use the number 7 on the numeric keypad to take me up to the top line which is previous line to I get to top.


I can use the number 9 on the numeric key pad to read down a line


4 will do previous word and 6 next word.


1 is previous character and 3 is next character.


8 is current line, 5 is the word you are on and 2 is the character you are on.


Depending how you read it I might read the whole lot then do it word by word say for example.


You might have to look up the command to go up a level in object navigation if using a lap top.


hope it helps.

Hi


To chage nvda into object navigation mode use the following nvda key + 1 on the numeric keypad you should hear it spoken then depending which keyboard setup you are using is which command you use to go up  alevel.


The first command is for the desk top and the second is for a lap top to go up a level then you will need to review the text as given before on the numeric keypad.


7 previous line, 8 current line, 9 next line.

4 previous word, 5 current word and 6 next word.

1 pevous character, 2 current character and 3 next character this is done on the numeric keypad.

I am fortunately can't. Since the information is at the end. That's a lot of information to listen to and plus I can't move through it.

This message is not being sent secondary to any incident, but because it's useful information to have regardless of whether an internet forum or e-mail list is involved.  Much of what it contains used to be "common knowledge" but in recent years its communication "down the generations" seems to be getting lost.  It's too valuable for that to happen.

25 Forum Posting Etiquette Tips

The article above was originally posted all the way back in 2007, which is eons ago in the computer age.  It has withstood the test of time, with the exception of recommending against using HTML formatted messages, as these have become a de facto standard since. 

One addition to that list should be:  Please, when you send a message asking for assistance and find the answer yourself prior to someone else having managed to do so, don’t post something like, “It’s OK, I fixed it.”  It's rude to leave the readership hanging  once you've determined a solution. If you were looking for how to fix it, later searchers will also be looking for that answer.  Since you know how, add the, “and here’s how,” part afterward.  Many will bless you, even though you don’t know they do.

Re: New and apparent lag with NVDA in File Explorer, and an Introducion

 

Hi,

Between a week to up to a year:

  • A week or two: if Microsoft found no issues with the build sent to beta and release preview Insiders (22000.28x)
  • Several weeks to months: if a fix is being tested by dev channel Insiders in build 22400 series, and if so, it will take a while for fixes to be backported and test by beta and release preview Insiders
  • Up to a year: if it is so major that it must wait until the next big Windows 11 update (next year)

I won't go into all the work that goes on inside Microsoft to make a fix available to everyone (as it is a bit technical and beyond the scope of this forum), but suffice to say that it involves testing a fix with more people in each stage: first with Windows developers themselves in combination with automated tests run by machines, then to Windows Insiders on dev channel and Microsoft employees, then to Insiders on beta and release preview and more Microsoft staff, then finally to everyone.

Cheers,

Joseph


Does Avaya phone system work well with NVDA and Jaws?

Saylor Cooper
 

Hello NVDA users,

I am reaching out because I have a question about accessibility with the Avaya Softphone system. I will begin certification for a client who I will work with on the liveops platform where I will use Avaya for the phone system and therefore I’m wondering if it is accessible with NVDA and Jaws? I will also be connecting to the client using the horizon VMWare virtual desktop and therefore wondering if NVDA works with that as well? Thanks.

Thanks Joseph for the update. Based on your experience, can you think
of roughly when it might hit the stable version?

2021-10-19 10:11 GMT-03:00, Joseph Lee <joseph.lee22590@...>:

Hi,

In a way, yes in that Windows App Essentials comes with support for features
introduced in Insider Preview builds. For instance, the latest dev build of
the add-on includes a fix to deal with IME (input method editor) screen in
both Windows 11 Version 21H2 (build 22000) and Insider Preview build 22478
where NVDA may announce candidate items twice (caused by two different
events coming from candidate items). Insider Preview is the reason why I am
holding onto this add-on and its development despite plans to let go of my
other add-ons to focus on other things in life; but I do foresee a future
without Windows App Essentials add-on, but that is at least years away (I'm
sure folks will contribute to the add-on despite me not taking an active
role in NVDA Community anymore as I'm prioritizing earning a master's
degree).

By the way, I need to clarify that the fix for File Explorer lag is actually
being tested inside dev channel builds, not in 22000.28x as I initially
thought (apologies).

Cheers,

Joseph
