Re: Accessibility in SumatraPDF

 

I'd like it to be accessible as well. Adobe's

Adobe's Acrobat Reader DC has stopped being free, and is getting sort of out-of-date, so a better PDF reader is welcomed.
In the meantime, are there any accessible, up-dt-date PDF readers?

I have experienced your issues with editing formulas in cells on my work laptop which is running windows 7 32bit and office 2013. However, I am on windows 10 on a 64 bit machine running excel 2016 and do not have this problem. I had similar experiences with windows 7 64bit that is, I was able to edit text in cells directly.

 

Try making the following changes.

2.       Disable hardware graphics acceleration  again in the advanced tab.

Subject: [NVDA] NVDA with MS Excel

 

Hi

Has anyone encountered problems using MS Excel, in particular when using the VBA editor to write macros (I am using Windows 7), Office 2007.  NVDA occasionally announces ‘blank’ where there are letters (this occurs mainly wen the letter follows an open bracket)  and may also miss out entire lines of code when moving around using the arrow keys.  This behaviour also occurs after pressing F2 to display a formula.  Using the Tools/Options dialog,to configure the VBA editor,   I have set font to Courier New Western and pointsize to 10  but NVDA announces it as Ariel 8 point.    

 

Does anyone know of any work arounds or NVDA parameters I can use to prevent this behaviour from occurring?

 

Cheers

Chris

Hello,
Sorry for posting an OT message. Daniel Barich and I are planning a
comprehensive braille music transcription software BrailleOrch. We
make it open source, and will let it work with NVDA. I'm a blind
composer but not a programmer, and Daniel is not a braille-specified
programmer but just a Python programmer and braille music transcriber.
We met the following problem in the edit window. Since NVDA was
written using Python with WX, I'd like to ask this here. Hope anyone
can help use.

Daniel says:
I'm trying to figure out how best to make the braille editing area for
brailleorch in such a way that it can be read by screen readers. The
StyledText control in wx does not provide reliable accessibility with
NVDA. If we use a plain text box instead, then we can't highlight the
errors using colors.

note, if you actually don't want to have the setup, coppy the link to it then delete the everything after /releases and go to the releases, I in the end got the portable.
Next, the question was do I need python, no everything needed is contained in the program.
For the demonstration I found a youtube vid that was 7 minutes long from nvda well about nvda and there are a few of these, I then ran youtube-dl-g executable file.
Layout.
its a simple layout, from what I could figure out, there is an update button to update the program I assume, a ariea for urls and an options button as well as a download button.
I paste in a youtube url and hit download.
I then was able to get access to the file who's location opened on the end of the download and as well as that the program put up a dialog on what to do and then it played in winamp as expected.
So why not the podcast?
While the program was quite simple to use, access wize there were a few things lacking.
While I could guess some of the option pages, control tab when I switched to the next tab the tabs did not speak the first one said tab control but everything else never spoke.
So while I could get access and change audio options, the video types in their combo boxes, and turn on and off audio conversion which seemlessly happens on the fly by the way, I was unable to get the titles of the combo boxes.
So there were a few pages where I have no idea what they were.
As it stands you can with any confidence set the following.
path.
you will want to do that immediately as it defaults to %username% which while fine is not.
I had adobe digital additions do that to me with its settings, this made my user directory inaccessable till I killed the file it made %appdata% not work.
sadly %username% and a few other variables are still screwed over thank god I don't need these that often.
Since there is no brouse button I would set it to something off the root or somewhere you can find stuff later.
for me I put it in the downloads folder off my root which is where I put ftp files to.
the next tab after the general one which also has a reset options button.
has a editable box saying default and by going up and down you can choose the video type downloaded what sort web m mp4 apple, 3gp, mobile and flv flash video of different qualities.
In addition there is a box becide it set to none which I assume has a video you can save it to if you don't want the video in that format.
once you set either the second to none or the first to default the second box is no more.
the default is probably whatever the video came in mostly mp4 apple video.
the next tab has the audio on and off checkbox which is always unticked.
The formats are, mpeg layer 3, apple losless aac, ogg vorbis and microsoft wave.
as they appear in the list they are
mp3
aac, wav and vorbis.
You can set these in the next box high mid or low.
I sadly couldn't customise what those settings were.
The next page is a lot of numbers and I didn't know what those were.
The next page all with control tab I assume because of protected fields is your proxy or something else.
the next 2 pages are numbers and I assume its all to do with networks but I don't know what they do as they don't speak.
there is no ok or cancel so you just alt f4 out of the options window.
Your next question is can youtube -dl -g be used?
Yes.
Can it be used fully, not without some work.
Its also worth noting that its not even passed version 1.0 yet.
I myself don't need to convert many youtube videos however I'd like to test if someone can download a huge video say 2-5 hours long and see what that does to how long it takes.
it took 1 minute at 250kbps to get a 7 minute video on nvda.
I do think that if someone uses this a lot they should probably ask the author to make things more accessable, however all it needs are things like labling of all the options, tabs, boxes, icons, etc as the main issue is that most of the options and interface does not have much labeling and thats probably all it needs.
The main interface is ok, but its just options that are not labeled.
it also did not contain any docs over its readme which being a wing it guy didn't read, and I am confident to say you don't need that file as such.
Being that it is opensource, I am not sure about linux/windows but I am wandering if someone has time they could make this thing work better access wize or write an addon for nvda.
Look round but I don't think much needs to be done.
I may contact the author and see anyway.



Re: the talk tonight

That's not quite right.
* The first and second sliders are backwards.
* The third one is to control the level at which the mic activates when
using voice activation. It won't be there when using push to talk, but
PTT and voice activation are not mutually exclusive.

More tips I've gathered from using this for years:
* If you're using the default Windows Audio Session backend, you might
not be able to hear some people. I'm not sure if this has been fixed by now.
* If you ever switch your default sound device, or plug in a USB headset
or something, restart TeamTalk if it's running. Then go into TeamTalk
and check your audio device settings. They might have changed.

Hi Scott,
I will respond with two things here:
* 100 is the loudest and 0 is the softest volume you can acquire.
* If you are wondering what difference exists between the three
sliders, the NVDACon page explains that by the following quotes:
'5. While in any room, you will see three slider controls after the
list of channels (rooms and channels are the same thing), along with
an edit field. The first edit field is for system and user messages.
The second lets you chat by typing text and pressing enter. The first
slider changes your microphone's sensitivity (gain), the second
changes the volume of the room in general as you hear it, and we are
not sure what the third one does.'
Also, to test your mike audio, in earlier conferences, we did have a
mike audio testing room specifically, but due to technicalities I am
unaware of, our server administrator tells us this may not be possible
to implement in Teamtalk 5, or this NVDACon. If I remember correctly,
the alternative way of checking your microphone is by pressing Ctrl +
4 in any room or channel, and your audio should be echoed back for
your understanding and testing, as I was earlier told by someone.

By the way, for the Android users on this list, I would also like to
mention that the Teamtalk Android app is in development stage
currently, but you still might want to try it out from
http://bearware.dk/?p=279 as its optimal accessibility with Talkback
is explicitly assured. A friend of mine and myself are going to test
the Teamtalk Android app ourselves as well. Will share our findings
once we are thoroughly done with our assessment.
Thanks.

Hello Bhavya.
I installed teamtalk just now.
It appears like i'm connected, well not at the exact moment as i write
this but i did get into the rooms.
But, now since there is nobody there, how do i test my audio?
And those sliders for the microphone, is 0 or 100 the loudest.
I'm asking because sometimes programs i have run into can be different
in that respect.
Talk to you later.

Hi Scott,
Well, do let us know in case you have some specific Teamtalk problems
or troubleshooting requirements, and the TT experts here may be able
to help you.
Just to note, you can communicate in the conference via text messages
as well as audio conversation. Text chats are always recognized and
read out by others. If microphone configuration with TT is an issue
for you, hope that may no longer need to be an impediment for
participation in NVDACon. :) smiles
Thanks.

Hi Scott, Joseph and others,
It was great fun for me too to be a part of the recent Accessible
World Techtalk presentation, and am thankful to Joseph for the same.
Just like this recent Techtalk event related to NVDA, I would
encourage everyone to participate in this, and future events,
including the NVDACon International 2016, of course. Looking forward
to seeing you out there, Scott, and many others.
Thanks.

Hello Joseph and all.
First of all I wanted to say thanks Joseph, that was fun to listen to.
I will have to reinstall the plugin though because I tried to talk and
it didn't work i think.
But, thanks again.
Maybe some day I'll actually get to talk to you all in voice during
one
of these things.

I'm planning to be there during at least some of the nvda con
sessions.
Sounds like it'll be fun.

Well, that is all for now.

Talk to you all later.
