Are there any specific keyboard commands used in the MySQL workbench application that I should know? Are there any third party scripts that I can load that are available for JAWS?

On a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being super accessible, how would anyone with experience with this application rate the its accessibility with JAWS and / or NVDA?

Any advice, feedback, lessons or just advice on how to get the instructor to accommodate for an alternative solution to the MySQL application will be greatly appreciated, as there is an assignment that I have to turn in using the MySQL software next Monday.

Thanks for reading!

That was my feeling hence my comment.
I've been bamboozled by this technique in the past on web pages or in emails in html.
The last time i found this was click here to send me an email, which worked but did it via a website form, whereas the graphic told the sighted what the email address actually was but not us.

pandora skipping and not shuffling.

ken lawrence
 

Hi list ken here.  really am disappointed in the indifferents in pandora’s accessibility commitment to accessibility for the blind so perhaps NVDA users can help where they can’t.  my pandora skips tracks randumly while on Internet explorer.  it only happens on IE but the bad news is I can’t make pandora shuffle nore can I switch stations on either chrome or firefox.  haven’t tried edge yet since edge is a no go with jaws and it is borderline with NVDA.  I have tried everything on firefox and chrome.  I have passed keys through and tried hitting enter, the left and right mouse buttons and the space bar on both stations and my individual stations.  I also want to remove stations that are unwanted.  pandora hasn’t had the foresite to even develop any way to do that?  they offered to delete any I don’t want for me which requires that I search all stations and come up with a list.  that’s a bit rediculous.  so my question is this.  am I more easily able to use pandora’s shuffle mode now that NVDA better recognizes HTML 5 elements on IE and is their something else I need to do on the other two browsers?  also with the better HTML 5 recognition does this make NVDA a better option with edge on pandora?  also do any of you know how to remove a station on pandora until I can perhaps activate my hope client to a full version?  also On hope, when launched, a user account control dialog comes up apparently installing an updated hope but when I did that it was just a blank page that NVDA couldn’t see so I had to uninstall and reinstall it.  when and if that comes up again should I yes that dialog or should I go get a clean version of it.  you can delete stations with hope if you have full version activated.

Have you contacted the creators of the inaccessible library document? If not you should. Libraries are for everyone and as such, documents giving details of their services should be accessible. If they don't know there is a problem for you reading their document, they can't do anything about it. Perhaps they supply it in audio or some other form accessible to you but if not, then you should complain.

Cheersd
Chris

Re: Standard Keyboard Labels?

It could be it has text in text boxes or it could always just be an image.

I cover a method for accessing text boxes in the Microsoft Word with NVDA module.  Essentially it involves creating a new text box and from there you can use tab to move between any other text boxes or inserted objects.

Alternatively, you can use the accessibility checker to locate a checkbox, set it inline and then you can find it in the body of the document (NVDA identifies it as "slash" currently) - however you would need to do that for each text box.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Well this is a grey area. It was part of the old release of IBM home page reader, and is in fact Eloquence, but in sappi 4.
Yes it still works, but I think the point is its only legal to use it if you had it at the time it was around. Since then the rights seem to have been tossed around a bit like a tennis ball, so I'd be loathe to mention any links I have to it as it may well infringe copyright.

View this email in your browser
Learn Tech, www.afb.org/learntech - collage of people working on computers and closeup of hands on a keyboard
The American Foundation for the Blind is pleased to announce Learn Tech, a technology access initiative that features free online tutorials to help people who are blind or visually impaired learn how to improve their computer and technology skills. The tutorials can be accessed at www.afb.org/learntech.

The newest tutorial offering for Learn Tech is a 10-part series on Using Google Docs and Google Drive with NVDA. Google Docs is a free, web-based application in which documents can be created, edited, and stored online. Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service that allows users to store files in the cloud, and share files with people who are working on the same project. NVDA (Non-Visual Desktop Access) is a free screen reader for people who are blind or visually impaired.

When these tools are used together, computer users who are blind or visually impaired are able to use the computer for work or school without any additional, expensive software. These tools also allow for easy project collaboration with others at school or in the workplace, leveling the playing field.

Also available from Learn Tech are the previously released Learn NVDA free video tutorials that describe how to use the NVDA free and fully featured screen reader.

Additional tutorials will be added to Learn Tech over time. To learn more, or to share information with people who may be interested in using the tutorials, go to www.afb.org/learntech. Users are encouraged to provide feedback on the tutorials and  other training topics of interest in the feedback links.


Learn Tech tutorials were made possible with support from the Lions Club International Foundation, the Jessie Ball DuPont Fund, and the Consumer Technology Association Foundation. AFB is pleased to partner with these organizations to support technology literacy. Together, we are working to create a more accessible, inclusive world for people with vision loss.

Re: Standard Keyboard Labels?

If in word you type in (tm) it will convert it to the trademark symbol, and (c) does the same for copyright symbol, and (r) then implements registered symbol.


Stay well, and HTH

Hi NVDA users,

I write content articles as means to garner an income, and wonder if
you might know the specific keys on a standard computer keyboard that
automatically inserts the words "registered" and "trademark." Thus,
these words are read in whole but spelling is hidden if using arrow
keys. Thanks in advance.

Hi David,

I recently wrote this myself for the Microsoft Word with NVDA module, available from http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/ (Hey, if I'm giving you the content, the least I can do is plug the product it's from).

  • To insert the Registered Trademark symbol, type control+alt+r or type (r)
  • To insert the Trademark symbol, type control+alt+t or type (tm)
  • To insert the Copyright symbol, type control+alt+c or type (c)

  • If you are interested in going a bit deeper with Microsoft Word and NVDA, I'd strongly recommend the Microsoft Word with NVDA module *smile*.

    Kind regards

    Quentin.
