Re: Punctuation level has stopped working

Gene
 

When you say it didn't work, do you mean you could change the setting and it worked until you quit NVDA and ran it again or are you saying that there was no change when you tried to change the setting?  the answer to the question may help identify what is causing the problem.

Re: Punctuation level has stopped working

Quentin Christensen
 

Are you using any NVDA add-ons?  For it to have changed a few days ago if you have been running NVDA 2021.2 for some time indicates a change in something other than NVDA itself, and to affect an NVDA feature such as punctuation, a change to an add-on or your synthesizer seem most likely.

Kind regards

Quentin.

ENHANCED PHONETIC READING

Stephen Thacker
 

Hi Quentin says use the beta as the link to the url I was sent is blocked. Please can someone send me the link for Enhanced Phonetic Reading Beta and nothing else as I have no interest in other projects or adons at this time. Someone suggested using the windows key with either 2 or 6 and this doesn’t work either on the number keypad or on the number keys below the fkeys. Thanks, Steve

Cheers, Steve

Re: ADON HELP PLEASE

This should be renamed.  When in screen review mode, the review cursor doesn’t move.  It maintains its place, as it should.  It is in object navigation that the navigator moves with the caret.  Exactly what this should be called, I’m not sure but it is not an accurate description as presently stated.  It causes confusion and implies that the user should be in review to see the change.

Re: NVDA and thunderbird

Gene
 

I was wrong.  Include layout tables is still available as a setting.  It is in the browse mode settings.  I was only looking in the document formatting settings.  I assume it means,if checked, that you will be notified when you come across a table used in formatting a page and as I said, the table in question isn’t a layout table.

Re: supressing announcement of row and column in a web table

Gene
 

Layout tables appears to no longer be in the settings.  But if you have it, it has nothing to do with this problem and if you chec it, you will get verbosity you probably don’t want.  It means to announce when a layout table, used for formatting, is encountered.  This table isn’t a layout table.  It has nothing to do with formatting the page or part of it.

Hi, you could try disabling all table reading in document settings and then going into browse mode settings and turning on "include layout tables". That may or may not work I guess. Otherwise, this could just be due to the design of the tables themselves which I don't think we can get around as screen reader users. HOpe this helps.

Re: supressing announcement of row and column in a web table

Mary Otten
 

Interesting about the movement commands. ;In that table I've been talking about, where each item in the grid is labeled as a heading level 3, with headings unchecked, I can not move by headings in that table, not that I want to. But On another page, those commands still work as expected. I'm not sure what might be "special" about those heading level 3s, but they are not recognized if I try moving with h to move from heading to heading. No big deal; I see no reason for them to be there in the first place.

Re: ssl error with nvda update and nvda remote add-on

Quentin Christensen
 

The add-on should still work, but it's probably easiest now to simply recommend installing the beta - because of our continuous alpha branch which seems well tested by a number of users, the beta version is generally pretty stable - and of course if there IS an issue, then it's important we find out about it (and once you run it and check for updates, the SSL error should be fixed so even if you needed to revert to 2021.2, the check for updates bug at least should be fixed.

Re: supressing announcement of row and column in a web table

Gene
 

If you turn off everything regarding tables, you shouldn’t hear such information.  Let us know if you do.  And if you still do, please send the link to the page so others can see what they hear, unless the page can’t be looked at by people in general. 
 
I’m not sure the table off commands always work properly.  Sometimes, I hear table information when I am in a subfolder in Windows Explorer when I shouldn’t.  That’s in Windows 7, so it may be that for some reason, turning off that information may not work in the table you are in.  This may need further checking by others.

Re: braille code

Quentin Christensen
 

You can set NVDA's Braille tables for input and output, as well as other options, on the "Braille" settings page.  Press NVDA+control+g, then control+tab to Braille, and tab through the options.

NVDA uses LibLouis for our Braille tables, and you can find out more about LibLouis from their site (which also links to their GitHub site): http://liblouis.org/
