Re: Rearrange Pinned Items

The drag and drop add on actually does not help. Most of the time my curser is not above like it shows. I verify this with the keys that the add on gives.

With any luck someone else who uses the add-on, Spotify, or both will chime in.  I've never touched Spotify, so I'm a dead end there.

It seems that when I try to mark a playlist, then drop it into the relevant folder I get a can't drop here error. I am not sure if this add on will work with spotify playlists, but I will give it more of a road-test.

I mentioned the following just last night in a topic about Rearranging Task Bar Items, but since you weren't a member then, you would not have seen it.

Javi Dominguez has written an add-on for Drag and Drop, which others have said is very helpful.  And by that I mean helpful in achieving actual drag and drop regardless of the context.  It would be worth a try.

accessible way of moving playlists to folders in spotify?

Orhan Deniz
 

Hello there,

I'm aware that drag+drop in browse mode rarely works. Has anyone however found a way to move playlists to designated folders in spotify? As a bit of a dj its important for me to have stuff filed properly and currently what I have to do is create a new playlist in the folder, copy the old playlist, then delete it. Needless to say this is cumbersome when in theory I should be able to just move them. But of course, cut+paste commands only work within playlists, not to move playlists to folders.


Best,

Orhan.


Re: Is the Windows 10 (and, I'd presume, 11) Sandbox Feature Accessible?

 

Hi,

Regarding keyboard shortcuts, it will feel like logging onto a Remote Desktop session - you would press Control+Alt+Break (Pause) key to switch between host (the computer you are using) and guest (sandboxed environment). The way I run NVDA (or for that matter, any screen reader other than Narrator) inside Windows Sandbox is:

  1. On the host computer, prepare the screen reader files - NVDA installer or a portable copy of NVDA.
  2. Copy the screen reader file(s) to the clipboard.
  3. Go to Windows Sandbox and switch to the guest environment.
  4. Open a folder location (say, Documents). The easiest way is typing the name of the folder from Run dialog.
  5. When the desired folder opens in the guest environment, paste the just copied scren reader file(s).
  6. Because it will take time for files to be copied (especially if you are copying a folder containing portable NVDA files), switch out of sandboxed environment, then use Windows OCR (NVDA+R) to recognize what Windows Sandbox is displaying.
  7. Once the copy operation is complete, switch back to the sandboxed environment, locate NVDA executable and run it.

You can also do all these with Narrator on - just before opening the folder in the guest environment (just after performing step 3), press Control+Windows+Enter while switched to the guest environment to start Narrator inside the sandbox. When NVDA starts, close Narrator.

I belive Windows Sandbox was covered somewhat on WinAccess forum (may need to check the archive for that one).

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Is the Windows 10 (and, I'd presume, 11) Sandbox Feature Accessible?

 

Lukasz,

That was very helpful indeed.

I doubt that anything more could be said about how one goes about gaining accessibility inside Windows Sandbox.  I don't use it, and it is clearly a VM-ish sort of environment, but it behaves even more like a true VM than I had suspected.  It appears you get a perfectly "clean slate" on invocation and must do any necessary setup each time.

Since it is a separate Windows instance it is necessary to start a
screen reader inside Sandbox so first Narrator with an appropriate key
combination and then if desired you can install NVDA as you would on a
fresh installation of Windows.

Since the question of whether it's accessible with NVDA, or any screen reader really, is on-topic for this group, I thought I'd post that here hoping that a definitive yes/no answer might be forthcoming.

If further discussion about how one actually uses the Windows Sandbox is desired, then please continue that on the Chat Subgroup in the topic, Sandbox Feature of Windows.

The only thing I like with Ableton Live is that you can transform an audio track to a midi track. Don't know if there's an equivalent plugin/reaper feature

Hi, I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask. No,  it isn’t free. Yes, it does work with NVDA. However, someone can better answer you on that. I don’t use it.  I think that program has a free 30 day trial. I could be lying. If you try it. You can’t use all its features until you pay.  If there is a free trial I suggest you try it in the meantime before someone answers you.  If you do end up trying the free trial. You find it doesn’t work then get rid of it before your trial runs out.  You won’t loose the show.  If you find it does work then you can pay for it.

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.

This had the windows installer fix.

 

I have however noticed a small issue which isn't an issue as such

because I can get round it easy enough.

 

Its just when I select the first item in the start menu ie hitting down

arrow from search I get all apps, then you get the programs starting

with punctuation like & or *, etc well that group does not read but the

items in it do and can be executed.

 

When colapsing a group it seems I get jumpped back to the top of the

list as well.

 

Again not a real big huge issue since I mostly search anyway but just

wandered if anyone has noticed.

 

I have not had any other issues in fact things seem a bit more stable,

but we will see what happens after I do some more shell work.
