Yeah I removed mine. I don’t need that shortcut. So I just quickly restart nvda like I have done for I am not sure how long now.

I also thought the shortcut is ctrl + alt + n. I answered in an exam. Although the examiner didn't provide correct answer, his attitude was like my answer was incorrect.

Hi

Use the default Control+alt+n or whatever shortcut you have assigned to the NVDA icon on your desktop.

Glad to hear that White Noise worked for you Sean.  I just stumbled on that one by accident, and it has worked perfectly for me each and every time.

I had not known about white noise, I had Bluetooth Audio. I installed white noise and it took about 30 seconds to kick in once I switched to my Bluetooth headset, but it seems to be consistent afterwards. I let it sit for a couple minutes and my first key press wasn’t cut off.

So the real problem never gets fixed and when asked why not? Answer you

That isn’t the newest version of Silenzio.  You can download the newest version here:
 
This is a direct download link and I don’t know if Silenzio, once installed, has information files.
 
You can see a little discussion of it on this page:
 
Search for Silenzio from the top of the page to see the discussion about Silenzio.  If you are curious, you may want to read the Jonathan Mosen entry about the problem on the page I linked to immediately above.

I think the general consensus is that Fluency is one of the most accessible on Windows and it sounds like their customer support people are responsive too. I haven't used it myself but this is the vibe I get from The Roundtable list for blind and vision impaired translators and interpreters.

Dear all,

My general concern of unresponsiveness in Word has been addressed for
the most part in recent development builds of NVDA. In particular, I

I have a feeling that UIA support is still kind of janky at best and is
still under development, and yes, typing is much snappier in word with
UIA
turned on, and this computer has rather limited system resources btw. I
know this isn't quite on topic, but I'll also mention a few things I
noticed in Excel with UIA support turned on, and btw I have both office
16/365 (or something like that) which I got from my college for viewing
narrated powerpoints and office 2007 (I know, I know, it's so old but
that's what my family has). I found the following, particularly with
the
newer office version (and sorry I know this is Excel):
- Pressing NVDA+Space does not switch between browse an focus modes.
- Pressing NVDA control C and NVDA control R does not allow you to set
automatic row and column header reading.
- Commands to select an entire row (shift + down arrow) and commands to
select an entire column (control shift down arrow) don't work as
intended.
Instead, I get something like (selected 1 through 1) which isn't right.
And yes, none of these are a problem with UIA turned off.

And a few issues with excel and braille displays (and yes speech is
perfectly fine here):
- When I enter browse mode and navigate between cells, nothing on the
braille display changes but I hear all the contents read out to me in
speech. This is not at all an issue in focus mode (and yes I did report
this on NVDA issue tracker under the name mrsviolafangirl).
- When using the newer version of Excel (and yes this happens no matter
if UIA is enabled or not), when I type into a cell with a braille
display
connected, the contents of what I'm entering is not showing up on the
braille display (but it is spoken just fine in speech) and I have to
press
escape or enter to read what I typed on the braille display. This is a
non
issue in my old MS Excel 2007.
And yes, I'm well aware that the number of people who use braille
displays is quite limited so I totally understand if braille display
issues
are hard to reproduce.

Okay sorry for commenting on excel issues on this thread, but if
there's
some little quirks using NVDA with MS office that can use some fixes,
it's
worth mentioning lol.

program seems to be available from
http://www.stefankiss.sk/programy/silenzio/Silenzio_1.0_setup.exe. I
have not downloaded it myself so cannout personally vouch for it yet.
* I skimmed through the GitHub tracker, and based on a perfunctory
scan of #5172, #10829, and #11024, it seems like this is regarded as a
solved problem, which I don't think is my experience and that of some
other participants in this thread.

Thanks.

Yes. I continue to have that same problem with my AirPods despite installing
the NVDA Bluetooth plug-in. It seems to have had no effect whatsoever. I’ve
given up on this set up and just use a pair of wired headphones now. It’s
unfortunate that such a simple thing can’t be made reliable but it is what
it is, I guess.

Dear all,

I am currently using NVDA 2021.2 with the Bluetooth Audio add-on
installed and enabled on a Windows 10 machine. With it, I am using a
pair of Bluetooth headphones with my laptop, both of which are
Bluetooth 5.0 compatible. Still, from time to time, especially when I
am reading short stringgs like an alphabet or a monosyllable, the
initial bit of the speech is cut off. Are there any ways to minimize
the cutoff or fix it entirely? Please let me know.

Re: Accessible CAT tool with NVDA

Hello,

 

Try OmegaT:

 

https://omegat.org/

 

It’s an interesting open-source project and in my opinion very accessible with NVDA.

Below you’ll find a list of useful shortcuts:

you're correct Rui. These are apps used to assist translators and speed up their work and manage large translation projects, but it seems that many of them are inaccessible, such as trados and wordFast

Hi, Yes you should be able to interact with those objects. Depending on the situation sometimes just pressing enter will work. If not, you can try NVDA+enter (laptop layout) or NVDAA+numpad enter (desktop layout). You may also need to move the focus to the object. I kinda forget which is which but it's either NVDA+backspace or NVDA+shift+backspace.

Hello,

 

Thank you for this message. I will definitely check out that link. Can you interact with these objects? This software is not standard when it comes to controls which is part of the reason it took me ages to learn it, LOL.

Hi Janet, I'm glad you've got something working for now. Based on your description I think it's unlikely JAWS scripts are being used. I am sure there's a way somewhere to check if JAWS scripts have been installed or not but I don't know where it is located in JAWS.

 

So as far as object navigation and NVDA is concerned, it's essentially the equivalent of the JAWS touch cursor or whatever Window eyes called it. The equivalent of the JAWS cursor is screen review/review cursor. I'm only familiar with laptop keyboard layout but I know many others can explain the desktop layout keystrokes.

 

So object nav is essentially moving between groups of object, so:

- to move to the next object, press NVDA shift right arrow

- to move to the previous object, press NVDA shift left arrow

- to move between groups of objects, press NVDA+shift+up/down arrow.

 

NVDA is in object review move by default. To cycle between review modes, press control+page up/page down.

There's also an exercise in this in process post that I suggest trying to help get a better understanding of object navigation. https://www.nvaccess.org/post/in-process-20th-november-2020/

 It's under the heading "using object navigation in Windows 10 settings).

 

Object nav does take some getting used to if you used a different screen reader in the past, but once you grasp it, you can access a lot more information. Hope this helps.

Hello Quentin and all,

 

Yes, I have contacted the software developer about its inaccessibility. The sense I get is that since it is, at least to them, compatible with JAWS, that is sufficient. In fact, the software is only partially accessible with JAWS.

 

Fortunately, I was able to obtain an annual license for JAWS. The amount of income I will get from this job will never be enough to live on. As for whether or not JAWS is using scripts, I have no idea. I am only learning as much of it as I need to in order to do the work. It seems to be a huge and extremely complicated piece of software, 95% of which I will never use. If it weren’t for the license there is no way I could ever afford it.

 

Quinten, thank you for those links. I am not familiar with object navigation, etc. However, I would still like to find someone to take a look at this program to see whether or not it could be used with NVDA before diving into that information.

 

Thanks for all of your input. Any more comments or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

 

Janet

Have you talked to the company (or developers) about the accessibility of the package?  As others have asked, do you know if it uses Jaws scripts to enable it to work with Jaws?

 

If regular navigation isn't getting you around the software, are you familiar with the review cursor and object navigation?  They are NVDA concepts for moving around text and objects which is otherwise inaccessible with normal navigation.  You can find them in the User Guide: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#NavigatingWithNVDA but if you are not already familiar with them, I'd strongly recommend the Basic Training for NVDA which goes into much more depth on them and has exercises and activities to practice your skills: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/basic-training-for-nvda-ebook/

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hello,

 

I am looking for someone in Canada certified in NVDA training to work with me to see whether there is any way to use NVDA with the proprietary software used by the company I contract for. The program is supposedly only compatible with JAWS which I am using now. I have tried NVDA with no success. NVDA is so much faster and more responsive. I would really like to be able to use it if possible. This would involve sharing my screen as the software is tied to my computer. If this is something that you may be able to help me with, please contact me directly at jbrandly@.... I will compensate you for your time.

 

Thank you,
