Re: Sharing large files

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Thanks, Luke,

Glad to hear that Dropbox still functions. I have mine for many years now and
ceased to use it for some time. I think I need to remove it and reinstall it
now that I have your reassurance that it is still usable.

I tried WeTransfer and found it excellent and fully accessible. I have noted
all of the steps that I took and would happily make these available to anyone
who wants them.

I will keep a note of the other services that you mention for future
reference.

All the best,

Cearbhall

I used to use Dropbox but that does not seem to work any more.
Why do you say that? I use Dropbox on a daily basis.
It is even installable, though with some difficulty, with the help of the
Dropbox add-on for NVDA.

That aside, iCloud works fine.

I know many blind people who use WeTransfer and SendTransfer.

Lastly there is box.com, which last I heard, will give you 10 GB of free
space, and from my, admittedly limited, uses of it, has appeared accessible.

There are others, including some new one with end to end encryption with keys
stored on your local machines, but I haven't tested that for accessibility
yet.
They bill themselves as the Signal of file transfer services.

I know the subject is not dropbox, but I will make 1 comment.

I current.y have a free 100gig dropbox account which I got by buying a new hp pc last fall.

If I share files that are 1 or 2 hundred megabytes, no problem,  but if I start sharing files of 3 or 4 gig to several people,  that free account is usually frozen in less than  a day and stays frozen for a day or 2.

That’s a free account I’

M talking about.

Drop box works for me with NVDA, Jaws, Narrirator, Voice over on Mac, Voice over on IOS, and Talkback.  I am not sure the trouble your having but it is still one of the best secure methods.

Hello Cearbhall,

 

You can make dropbox act like file explorer using this setup procedure:

----

To make the Windows Dropbox client act like file explorer:

Once the Dropbox windows client has been installed, and you have logged in to dropbox using the dropbox client:

Type windows B

go to dropbox, hit enter, the context menu appears.

go to preferences,

you are in General,

tab to: ""when starting dropbox go to the desktop app: uncheck this,

tab twice, ""badge"" do not use that,

tab twice to ""open folders in"" change to file explorer.

use “alt + down arrow” for pulldown menus,

hit enter until you leave the dialog.

Task bar disappears after closing portable nvda

farhan israk
 

I am using windows 10 21h2 and nvda 2021.3.5. I have noticed a strange issue. Suppose I have turned on portable copy to check that this copy is working properly or not after creating portable copy. I am going to visit my uncle's house tomorrow. So, I created a portable copy. If I exit the portable copy after confirming everything is working and turn on the standard or normal copy, the taskbar disappears. I neither can focus the task bar pressing windows + t nor pressing tab several times after focusing desktop. However, I have not verified by a sighted person. So, I cannot say strongly that it really disappears or nvda cannot focus on it. I have to restart windows explorer from the task manager to bring it back. I have noticed this strange issue two times.

Re: Reading and editing footers in Word with NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

I just tested on:

Windows 10 (64-bit) Version: 21H2 (2009), Build: 19044.1645
 
Office 365 (64-bit) Version: 16.0.15128.20140

And using either NVDA 2021.3.5, or NVDA 2022.1Beta4, everything works as expected with UIA enabled (2021.3.5) or set to "Always"  (2022.1beta4).

I can add or edit footers and read the text.

Which build of Office and version of NVDA are you using?

Kind regards

Quentin.

You said that the difference occurs when you turn UIA on or off. However, in the most recent versions of NVDA, there is an intermediate setting, which allows NVDA to use UIA only when necessary, and fallback to IAccessible otherwise.
That sounds like the setting you need here.

Re: Any friendlier volume mixer?

Thanks Tyler, the settings app indeed improves on locating opened apps. Unfortunately, they forgot to implement page up/down for changing volume by larger chunks. I will try EarTrumpet again tomorrow.

Re: Any friendlier volume mixer?

1. The new Windows volume mixer. Get to it through settings or by typing ms-settings:apps-volume into the Run dialog.

2. EarTrumpet.
Start it up, it shows up in the system tray. Hit enter on it, tab, arrow up/down through your apps, left/right adjusts, m mutes.

Re: trouble navigating and reading web pages.

Hi, I can’t confirm the problem. I went to my local town’s site about a spring Carnival and NVDA worked no problem.  I went there using Microsoft Edge.

It sounds as though browse mode may not be working.  I don't know why that might be but can you navigate using either JAWS or Narrator?  We need to try to find out whether the problem is in Windows or NVDA.

Also, and try this first, when you open a web page, what happens when you issue the command NVDA key space after the page loads?  Can you navigate after doing that?  The problem may be as simple as you not having the setting that automatically causes browse mode to be used when a page loads.

Good evening, I hope everyone is well.

I’m having issue at the moment with NVDA web whenever I press any kind of key in Microsoft edge, it can take anywhere between two and 10 seconds for NVDA to register the key press, and having loaded Microsoft narrator, this is a bit faster but still has a similar issue.

Do you only thing that’s changed recently is that my company has loaded up some security software called McAfee Endpoint DPL, not sure if anyone has heard of it itendpoint DPL, I’m not sure if anyone has heard of it but I wondered if that might be causing any issues with NVDA?

Reading and editing footers in Word with NVDA

Sandra Pilz
 

Hello,


I just tried to edit the footer of a Microsoft Word document using NVDA. I wasn't able to read it as long as UIA for Word was active. When I changed it back to the old setting, i.e. not to use UIA, I was able to edit the fotter as I remembered being able to.


Are headers and footers in Word currently not supported when UIA for Word is active?


I have a Office 365 subscription and am using the latest version of Word.


Regards


Sandra
