Re: unlabelled buttons and nvda

Hi


The functionality is not built into nvda but the golden cursor lets you do hot spots I have used it on un labled buttons for a scanner etc but uses the elements list to get to those areas. It is like put the mouse on the area, label it then bring it up in a list in the program I think it is.


There is also another add on that is been reviewed or updated called object enhancer which I have in my drop box at https://www.dropbox.com/s/dqnooxmas5utw70/objEnhancer_2019.2beta1_Gen.nvda-addon?dl=0


There is english documentation that tells you how to use it. The guy that made it does not want to take it further?

Hi guys,

 

I have an epubconvertor but it has couple of buttons that nvda latest version doesn’t recognise and interpret them just as button button etc.

Currently I have the epubsoft convertor v14.5

Evaluation of the software can be downloaded from here:

Is there a way how to label such buttons using nvda? Jaws has this functionality for sure.


microsoft store and virtual cursor

Hi.

when navigating microsoft's store NVDA on my pc doesn't switch to vertual cursor just as I remember it doing before. Am I imagining things or there indeed should be a vertual window when microsoft store is navigated? Windows 11 and latest beta of NVDA.

Either way, we'll keep an eye on it.

Also, for the update issue, if it wasn't the glitch in the site, and you are getting that error regularly when checking for updates.  Please download NVDA 2021.3 beta 2 from: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2021-3beta2/ - you can install it or just choose "continue", and then either way, go to the help menu and check for updates - that should fix the issue.

Kind regards

Re: loss of hot keys

Gene
 

This affects built in keyboards as well and directly connected ones.  I don’t know what causes it but it has something to do with NVDA and was referred to years ago when JAWS had the problem as sticky keys.  I don’t use JAWS now and I don’t know if it ever happens.

Given how cheap fully functional USB wired external keyboards are at most thrift shops, it's worth having one on hand for testing purposes.  Of course if it's a laptop key that's stuck, and you can't unstick it, an external keyboard will still misbehave since the computer will accept input from all connected keyboards.

Re: loss of hot keys

When this happens, all keys get stuck. I know we’ve talked about this before. It does not matter if it is a wired keyboard or a laptop keyboard. Iv’e tested with both over the years this has been happening.

Re: loss of hot keys

Sarah k Alawami
 

I think this is somehow as software issue. Can there be a test to see if the keyboard hook gets stuck for what ever reason? This tends to happen sometimes if the computer is busy, or at any random time. I can’t reliably

Reproduce this all the time but when it does happen, it’s annoying.

Just looking back, I thought when this came up previously, that the issue was with the keyboard, and tapping keys (eg repeatedly tapping the stuck key a few times) fixed it?

Re: How does NVDA make its GUI accessible

Briefly though, if you mean how does it make a Python GUI coding environment accessible, I don't think it does. I'm pretty sure it was written in a text editor like Notepad. VS Code is accessible and has a Python mode though.
