Re: Reading be accessible name of an interactive components in screen readers

 

It really helps to have a few specific examples where the behavior either occurs or does not occur, and consistently.

This really cannot be discussed in the abstract.  One has to be trying to deal with something in order to tease out what is, or is not, occurring.  And if a fix to NVDA ends up being needed, this is absolutely essential.  You can't fix what you can't reproduce.

Re: Reading be accessible name of an interactive components in screen readers

Russell James
 

This is a great question

I would also very much like to understand this :-)

Sometimes it works really well and other times not at all

I think it is different in Windows applications versus web applications

I have noticed at times that it wasn't working on things that I know it has worked with previously and so I will restart nvda and sometimes that resolves the problem

I have also noticed this more recently and can't explain what brought about the change because I don't think nvda has been updated for some time on the computers I'm using

The other day I had a related experience while using a remote windows 10 computer and I couldn't get the system tray icons to be spoken

I realize that I am assuming what you meant and what I think you meant is using a physical mouse to explore by mouse the content on the display

Hello everybody

I would like to understand what makes NVDA read the label or the accessible name when hovering with the mouse on button or image button.

Let's say that the button image button or other element in the form off interactive components has an accessible name. Sometimes NVDA will read the name and sumtimes not.

I must say that in JAWS screen reader, this function of reading the accessible name off interactive component works much better with mouse hover. For example I can hover on a button in Gmail app for the web and JAWS will read the accessible name and NVDA not

Since there are a lot of low vision users and other people with cognitive disabilities who can benefit from hearing the text that associated with the interactive component, it is important to understand the conditions that makes NVDA read the component name.

Re: eBook Readers with NVDA

Giles Turnbull
 

a question on a slight tangent ... I have a paid version of QRead 3.1 and want to stick with that version. I recently needed to replace my Surface Pro tablet with a newer model, and when I attempt to install QRead 3.1 on it, using the same email address and activation key that was provided, nothing happens. I still stay on the product avtivation page of the app, and if I close that down and re-start QRead, I am still greeted by the product activation page!

Does anybody have any idea what might be preventing me from registering QRead on my new tablet? I did ask this question through the QRead contact page, but no response as yet.

TIA :)

Hello Tony,

This is very timely. I just downloaded the LibreOffice 7.2 beta version. I think I will choose this over Wordpad for editing my RTF documents. I only wish NVDA would speak the enter key (a complaint I mentioned earlier in a post). Well, I have to get used to it.


Thank you so much.

Hi,


Libre office is a suite of productivity programs, not an antivirus application.  Like Open Office, It uses the  graphic user interface, similar to what was used in earlier versions of microsoft office prior to Office 2007 which introduced the ribbon interface. To my knowledge, NVDA supports both Libre Office Writer, and Libre Office Calc. Your screen reader will not have any problems with it.   I'll post the keyboard shortcuts for each of these applications when I return from the road later today.

Hi


The following web page has a tutorial on how to use the program as well with nvda.

This is for the program you are looking at.


Jump down to the heading I think it is called tutorials for talking computers, there is a link below it that takes you to where they are..


The link to nvda tutorials for other programs is http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

There may also be other tutorials on this page of interest as well.

Subject: Re: [nvda] LibreOffice?

Hi,


Libre office is a suite of productivity programs, not an antivirus application.  Like Open Office, It uses the  graphic user interface, similar to what was used in earlier versions of microsoft office prior to Office 2007 which introduced the ribbon interface. To my knowledge, NVDA supports both Libre Office Writer, and Libre Office Calc. Your screen reader will not have any problems with it.   I'll post the keyboard shortcuts for each of these applications when I return from the road later today.

Hi


The following web page has a tutorial on how to use the program as well with nvda.

This is for the program you are looking at.


Jump down to the heading I think it is called tutorials for talking computers, there is a link below it that takes you to where they are..


The link to nvda tutorials for other programs is http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

There may also be other tutorials on this page of interest as well.

Here's the batch file; only three lines:

@echo off
cd\nvda211
NVDA.exe

This is my second try. First try did not have the cd command but just said:

@echo off
nvda211\NVDA.exe

Of course, that batch file is in the root of the thumb drive.

When I start NVDA using the Batch file, the (assumed) title bar says:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe


The rest of the screen appears to be blank.

I use QRead myself, but lots of people don't like it because the author will abandon things for long periods of time. Still, for me, it works pretty well, I haven't found another program that reads all of the formats it does. But you do have other options. Edge can read .EPUB files, I'm pretty sure, and lots of things can read PDFs nowadays, most browsers for example. If they won't come up as text you'll have to OCR them with something anyway, in order to read them.


I've never gotten Calibre to do much of anything. Personally I wouldn't restrict myself to something like the iPhone, not only because I don't own one, but also because then you're stuck with whatever Apple has.
There are lots of books that aren't in Apple's format.


Another option you didn't mention is Kindle for PC. This is accessible and works well with NVDA, so much so that I signed up for Kindle unlimited. There's also Bookshare, and NLS if you're in the US, or whatever library service you've got in your country, in case you're not hooked up with something like that.

Re: eBook Readers with NVDA

 

Not yet but my plan is to try to maybe review some of these later on.

Of course weather I will do this before christmas is another thing.

What may happen is that on christmas day or one of those dead days  I will probably do a podcast.

Christmas day is at my place and only in the evening.

So chances are since it is christmas I will not be going to the gym as I usually do on a saturday.

Being its my own personal gym but even so.

Anyway who knows.

I'll note it down.

What I really want is a good ebook converter, ie epub, to htm, text, etc mobi, etc.

Pdf I have plenty of converters but even so I'd like one.

Calibre is a good software package to use but the codex frontend just makes it a lot better.

Its just a pitty no one works on it.

What needs to happen is someone other than me can find the old site james had with the latest compiled version, I'd do it but forget where on wayback I should look and somehow preserve it so at least we can still use that version.

I like codex for its ease of use to convert the books to something else I can read, like text or something.
