Re: NVDA - Working with Math and Sound Themes

cisco
 

Hello there Quentin and all,

 

Thank you for the answer about math, the user guide was most enlightening.

 

However, is writing with Math type supported as well? If so, is it only supported with speech or with speech and braille both?

 

If it is not supported, can anyone recommend me software that would allow editing and writing of mathematical content, if any exists?

Thank you and best regards.

Francisco.

HI there,

 

For the first part, see the NVDA user guide section on reading mathematical content: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#ReadingMath

 

The main software is MathPlayer and MathType.

 

For the sound themes question, I'll leave that for someone else, I haven't looked into it myself.

Hello everyone,

 

I’m quite sorry that I could not think of an easier to understand subject but I am not good at that.

Also, I am sorry if one or both of the questions I am going to ask had to be asked on the chat group.

 

My first questions is, is there any software that a blind highschooler can use in conjunction with NvDA to do their math work?

 

My second question is, does anyone have an NVDA sound theme which has android’s talkback sounds and which is also compatible with the “Audio Themes” NVDA add-on?

 

Thank you for any answer, and again, I’m sorry for all I said above.

Best regards.

I'd also suggest installing NVDA 2021.3beta2.  It's been running fine and is likely to go to Release Candidate (RC) stage soon.

It also fixes "the NVDA and add-on update" issue that keeps being reported, and even were you to decide to roll back afterward, that fix stays because it's a fix to resources used by NVDA, external to NVDA, not the NVDA code itself.

Just to get up on my recent soapbox in several venues, it cannot (and I'd say should not) be presumed that any random laptop user is actually using laptop keyboard layout.

NVDA uses desktop layout by default on any laptop on which I've installed it and the majority of laptops have been sporting a full-size desktop type keyboard for some time now.

Laptops with classic laptop keyboard layout are the exception, not the rule.

Keyboard layout depends on the keyboard itself, not the thing it's connected to or built into.

One can use laptop layout with a full-size keyboard, but not vice versa.

If you have a GitHub account and think this is a worthwhile change, after having read the feature request, then please comment on it.  Or even if you don't think it's a worthwhile request after having read the feature request.  Community input is one of the things that gets these things looked at and, possibly, implemented.

Not that I'm aware of.  I always used the technique that Eduardo mentions.

I need to check if there's a GitHub ticket about making it such that if you've started NVDA with Add-Ons Disabled that Add-On Manager would offer you a way to selectively re-enable one or more during that session.  There could be a very good reason this functionality doesn't exist, or it could be that it's never been asked for.

It would be very handy to replicate what's called a clean boot process under Windows, where you "eliminate by halves"  and keep re-enabling in chunks until something breaks again.

Hello there,

 

The only restriction that Reaper gives without you purchasing it is a window that you can close after four seconds on first start of the software per session that basically says that Reaper is not free, and that you should purchase it because that would help them greatly.

Except that, Reaper can be used without buying a license as far as I know, I am using it without a problem, and I’ve had it for more than a year.

I did give you the links so you could investigate for yourself...  There's a "download" link which tells you the evaluation lasts for 60 days and a purchase link which tells you that a license costs $60 for a personal license (and $225 for a commercial license).

 

I don't know the restrictions of the free version, but they do encourage you to download the free version first to ensure it meets your needs.  Do check it out and let us know what you think.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

is reaper free? does it work with NVDA? Can it be used for more than 60 days? and most importantly, will it run on my 4GB computer?

I'm not familiar with it, but from a quick search, I gather it is music software? https://www.ableton.com/en/

 

I couldn't find anything on its accessibility, but I did find a couple of forum posts asking for help making it accessible, so it may not be.

 

I know a lot of users find https://www.reaper.fm/ meets their needs, particularly with the Osara accessibility add-on: https://osara.reaperaccessibility.com/

 

I'm not sure if that does what you need or has any of the same features as ableton, but just thought I'd mention it.

 

Kind regards

Subject: [nvda] Status Bars and NVDA

Dear all,

I am using NVDA 2021.3 Beta 2 on a Windows 10 machine. To my knowledge, back in the day at least, I thought status bars were incredibly common and present in most applications. I had a bunch of programs open and decided to issue the read status bar command (NVDA+Shift+End on a laptop) to see what happened. The results are
below:
* Wordpad: "No status line found"
* Windows Explorer: "No status line found"
* Stata: "j"
* Microsoft Edge: "No status line found"
* Word for Microsoft 365: "Status Bar Page Number Page 2 of 32 Word Count 2728 words Spelling and Grammar Check Errors Text Predictions Text Predictions: On Accessibility Checker Accessibility: Investigate Focus Read Mode Print Layout Web Layout Zoom Out Zoom 160 Zoom In Zoom 160%" after a 2.5 second delay
* Wordweb: "wordweb.info"

In this experiment, most programs gave no valuable information. In the one program that did have a meaningful status bar, NVDA took a solid
2.5 seconds to read it. Are status bars truly becoming obsolete? Or does this hint at an issue in NVDA's read status bar command?

I would appreciate any thoughts and inputs.

Re: Status Bars and NVDA

In some cases, Like File Explorer, status lines are there, but NVDA just does not read them. Rui Fontes developed an handy addon that reads most status lines, but I believe this functionality should form part of the NVDA core. A long time ago I wrote about this, but NVDA developers did not seem particularly interested in this issue. One of them even wrote that one could get at the information in the status line by pressing the review cursor key to jump to the bottom line and then pressing the key to read that line. Sure, that can be done, but it would just be more convenient to have a key which is supposed to read status lines to work correctly. Rui's addon shows that it is not a major undertaking to achieve that.

Kind regards

Christo
