Re: Accessible PDF reader

Marco Oros
 

OK.

For example this issue with links, or search field too

For example I must use tab and form mode to access links and also, when I have pressed tab on find field (ctrl+f), NVDA says 'unknown'. I use NVDA in Slovak, but this word is translated to English, as unknown.

Since I don't know what specific problems you are having, I don't know if this will meet your needs.  A good way to read PDF documents is to open them in the Edge browser.  However, if the documents contain tables, it appears the table formatting isn't kept.  But for straight text, Edge opens PDF documents very quickly and by default, returns to the last page you were reading.

Use control o when in Edge to open the open file dialog and treat as you would any standard open dialog.

Please, can exist some good alternative? Or, which version of Acrobat reader is still accessible to the blind users?

Have you tried Bookworm? It is an accessible reader built with accessibility in mind. You can get it from its official's website <https://getbookworm.com>
Hope this helps.

Re: Reading and editing footers in Word with NVDA

Sandra Pilz
 

Hi Quentin, Luke, and Sarah,

 

Thank you for your replies.

 

I’m using NVDA Version 2021.3.4 and Word (Version 2204 Build 16.0.15128.20158).

 

I have tried editing footers again and am able to do it as long as the footer I’m trying to edit doesn’t contain a table. When I wrote my first Email, I had tried editing a footer including a table and didn’t think of removing the table to see if the table caused my problem.

 

 

I can edit the footer including the table when UIA use in Word isn’t selected, I can’t when it is selected.

 

Kind regards

 

Sandra

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 left out some key information.
What version of NVDA do you have?

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: Punctuation

Chris Mullins
 

               

Hi

Part 1 - OK, using the Punctuation/Symbol Pronunciation dialog, set the levels to”All” for both instances of exclaim and apostrophe. There are 2 entries in the dialog for each of these so there are 4 entries to change.  This completes Part1 of the process.

 

Part 2 - Once you have done the above, you need to set the Symbol level you want to hear.  If you press NVDA+p repeatedly, you will hear NVDA cycle around the available options which are, In order, None, Some, Most and All.  Stop pressing NVDA+p when you hear the level you want to set. 

The Symbol level setting chosen determines which Punctuation/Symbol characters are announced as you readusing Say all, Say Line and Say word commands as it will only announce punctuation/Symbol characters which have a level equal to or lower, set in the Punctuation/Symbol Pronunciation dialog discussed in Part 1.  Note that reading by character will always read the character, irrespective of the level set for it.  This completes Part 2 of the process.

 

Examples:

Set Symbol level (Part 2) to “Some” and it will only announce Punctuation/Symbols with levels of “None” and “Some” as set in Part 1.

 

Set Symbol level (Part 2) to “All” and it will only announce Punctuation/Symbols with levels of “None”, “Some”, Most”  and ”All” as set in Part 1.

 

Cheers

                Chris

I do have a google drive account, but I have always found it fiddly, and I would never give them anything important. So it didn't even occur to me to recommend them.

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.

Good morning all,

I hope you are keeping well and avoiding Covid!



I need to share a large zip file of 150mb with a colleague on a regular
basis. Can you suggest a file transfer system that is accessible and could
carry such a large file?



I used to use Dropbox but that does not seem to work any more.



All suggestions welcome.





All the best,



Cearbhall

Re: Punctuation

 

From the Moderator:  I simply cannot believe we are going through another spin cycle on this, again.  A 29 message topic, Exclamation Mark

 

, from March already covered all of this and Mr. Beasley has not supplied requested information nor methodically changed settings as requested.  Mr. Beasley, you are on warning, either follow the instructions you are offered, and report back on exactly what is occurring, or I will lock this topic and put you on by-message moderated status.

When you ask for assistance, it is expected that you will cooperate with your assistants and report back, accurately, on the results of having done so.

And if you are using Windows 10, you do have Narrator built-in for quick testing with the same OneCore voice you are using.

Janet,

This question would best be addressed in the Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group or the Chat Subgroup, as it is about Word and is completely screen reader agnostic.

I have never seen the View menu used for header or footer, but the Insert [ALT + N] menu, followed by H if inserting a Header, or by O if inserting a footer.  If the header or footer already exists follow with E to edit or R to remove.

If you already have a header and/or footer, and have your focus in it, ALT + JH opens the Header & Footer Ribbon, which gives quite a few more advanced options for formatting.

Re: Punctuation

When are they being read?

If I write:
Don't!

And up arrow onto that line, NVDA will read simply the word "don't", without articulating either the apostrophe or exclamation mark.

That happens with punctuation level set to none, some or most.  If I have punctuation level set to all then NVDA reads "don tick t bang".

If I right arrow through the word, then NVDA will always read "d o n tick t bang" regardless of the punctuation level

Given you worded them "apostrphe" and "exclamation" have you edited the "punctuation / symbol pronunciation" or dictionary?

In the punctuation / symbol pronunciation dialog, there are two entries for each.  Press the exclamation ! to jump to each of its entries.  Press apostrophe ' to jump to it's entry used when it is on its own.  The in-word apostrophe is three above the other one.  All four are set to symbol level "all" by default.

Re: Task bar disappears after closing portable nvda

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Farhan,

I just tried here and can't immediately replicate it.  I have seen previously - unrelated to NVDA - where explorer crashes, the taskbar can disappear or appear empty for a little while.  I've found when this happens in Windows 10, it usually sorts itself out after a few seconds, although the open windows may be in a different order to where they were previously.  Could it be something like that?   Does the taskbar come back after say 10 or 20 seconds?

Quentin.

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.
